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!

A Message To A Friend

My friend,when darkness befalls you
When hope just seem to perish
When life is full of lies
And everything just tastes foul

Remember a friend is here for you
Before you go out of our reach
I would hold you in my arms
And i wouldn't let you fall

Do not keep the sadness within you
Let it out,and let it vanish
Let tears rain from your eyes
And wash the sadness from your soul

For a life is still within you
I know life is going to be tough
But you can't loose your smile
Endure and conquer it all

Friendship

Some friends will forget you as a ghost in lost time Some friends will walk past you and never look by This is a reality life's not a cartoon but if you get lonely there's always the moon The friends who are loyal count few fingertips the others are only sad words on the lips But if you get lonely there's always a star which reaches for your heart wherever you are.

We Were Young Once Upon a Time

We spent time with each other time after time
Now, we're older now...looking AT THE TIME FLY...
We were young and happy that splendid time
But, we have grown out of it somehow...I'm gonna cry...
And I know the reason why
I wanna cry...we dreamt of spreading our wings and flying away, being one with 
the current of the aqua-blue sky

We were young once upon a time
But, our young heart never was one – if it was, that would have been sublime
This shame bestows woe upon my soul…because I wish upon a star and my 
wish never came true
My heart is scorching like coal...because I’m enraged of your heartless actions, 
but that’s nothin’ new
My heart is beating like the drums in the night
I know why I feel depressed – everything’s black and white now…I know the 
difference between wrong and right and I’ve fought the good fight
But I can’t fight the rejected of the departure that lead to my rue…but I won’t 
cry (boohoo)…oh no, not tonight…I wanna be as high as a kite & look at life in 
a different light

CHORUS:
I will squander my time now and forever
(Are you an evil, fallen angel?)
Until I meet you eye to eye again
Our departure came to soon…our future’s a blur
(sarcasm: Oh you must be a sweet, beautiful angel –)
Come on & get out of the lion’s den!
Release me…I need to let go…
Believe in me…reflect on me…
Release me…let me go with the flow
Let me grow and see…the light at the end of the tunnel
There’s other fish in the sea…

Rejected departure (that reduces me to rue)
Won’t mess with me this time…I am as fresh as morning dew
I wear an upside down frown
Gravity won’t push me down 
I’ll Stand Tall and Give it My All
I feel like I’ve been kicked around like a ball
I won’t fall apart
God takes me seriously
He took heart
But, oh God – where shall I flee?
What if sin throws me into captivity?
I would be in chains
But, I have the brains
To unchain me from my fretful fate
I will get out in no time – I won’t hesitate
I’ve been trapped in this shameful state
Help me along the way
I need God’s sun-shining day
To shed relief on me
Ease the pain 
Scrub off my heart’s blasphemy 
Shower down your healing rain  
Now, I look at life in a different light
I feel no guilt – why should I when I fought the good fight with all of my 
perpetual, awesome might? My heart is doused in delight, no longer doused in 
dismay and ahhh-fright!

We spent time with each other here and there
We lived our lives without a single care
But that was once upon a time
It was just a dream all along, though it was crime

~@#$%^&!*()_+=-)(*&^%$%$#@!~

pseudo artistry

Blood that screams mixes with tears of fears,
Over your hypocrisy and useless years.
Fresh cuts don't matter - your attentions yet wane.
It's just too easy to shut down, I could end this pain.

But, escape artists aren't artists at all.

When life ends the real journey begins, the journey to be
Above imperfection and glorified weakness everyone sees.
Life trickles into the drain of the sink, wash it and pretend
The veil is burning off,but there is only so much fire can mend

Besides, escape artists aren't artists at all.

Thanksgiving and Thankful

My heart was burdened with much concern,
For a person whom God placed in my path;
While the rationality I did not easily discern,
Obedience allowed me to escape His wrath.

This assigned duty which was bestowed,
To me alone, & 'twas from God conveyed.
a friendship from this single act has flowed,
From those incessant prayers once prayed.

















Details | Lyric | |

The Path

Oft times the path we choose in life
Be it the wide or straight and narrow.
We think we're traveling all alone
But God knows of the falling sparrow.

While on this path we oft succumb
To the world and it's sinister ways.
We meet those that we grow to love
In which we share our lonely days.

Together while enduring the valleys
We gaze toward the mountains tall.
Wondering if we'll reach the summit
And who will catch us when we fall?

Mayhap we think of some friendship
That due to path was neglected or wasted.
We do our utmost to reclaim the years
To restore that which once was tasted.

But life is a Smorgasbord of alternatives
So divergent path's, make life, you see.
I pray that if our paths never re-entwine
We've both chosen the one meant to be.


Dedicated to a special friend, Shirlene

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

and decisions that we make as
husband and wife.

that I am the flesh of your flesh.
Green or grown

I am the bone of your bone.

I am getting into a relationship that
elevates me into a kingdom of wifehood.

with all the rights, obligations
and privileges that come with wifehood.

loneliness and lostness from our relationship,
seeking nothing but your companionship;
banking on your stewardship,
sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

I Will Be Faithful To You

A first free verse  Poem and a lyric  Song for Y. 2014: 

A Poem:

I WILL BE FAITHFUL TO YOU
  (Free Verse Lyric)

I was broken when you met me
You gave me hope and courage,
Your words were enough strength
To bring back my heart a whole again.

I learned to love you more and more
Each day, dearest friend of mine,
To know that you are leaving
These teardrops fall from my eyes.

I will be faithful to you till the end of time
Whether you are far or near,
Forever in my heart  I’ll keep you dear
I’ll be waiting for you even under the rain or storm
I’ll try to be strong although my heart is torn.

Through you I found a new way
While you lovingly hold my hands
As I write my joys and my pains
You never leave me behind

When the sun shines in your day
Or the stars are seen above you,
Think of me that I’m always here
Wishing and praying the best for you

 I will be waiting for you even under the rain or storm
 I will be faithful to you…
 God, please give us strength to go on.

CANDLE 1st in Spanish then scroll down for english trans

VELA (CANDLE)First Spanish version, scroll down for English)
Yo ser‚ para ti.
Toda la vida que me queda la vivir‚ para ti
y cuando el tiempo haya terminado,
morir‚ por ti.
Dir‚ tu nombre
en cada vela que encienda, respirar‚ tu nombre.
Te susurrar‚,
cada oraci¢n que diga ser  siempre parte de ti.

Por toda la eternidad,
y as¡ ha sido y ser  siempre, 
y cuando deje este mundo,
aquello vendr  conmigo
en la luz de una vela.
Todo el mundo sigue girando, haciendo el d¡a y la noche,
y de la oscuridad a la luz,
ser s siempre parte de cada oraci¢n que yo diga.

Yo ser‚ para ti.
Como una fresca quebrada de la monta¤a que se desborda por ti
como una c lida brisa de verano
entre los  rboles para ti.
En el brillo de una vela,
todo lo que he sido o llegue a ser 
por toda la eternidad,
tu ser s parte de todo lo que yo haga siempre.
Yo ser‚ para ti.  

					
					Traducci¢n: Emilio J. Saavedra M.     CANDLE	
I will be for you.
All my life that is left, I will live for you,
and when time has run out,
I will die for you.
I will speak your name
in each candle that I light, I will breath your name.
I will whisper you,
every prayer I ever say will be part of you.

For eternity,
and forever it has been, and will always be,
and when I leave this world,
it will go with me.
In a candle light
all the world keeps on turning, making day and night,
and from dark to light,
you'll be part of every prayer that ever comes from me.

I will be for you.
Like a cool mountain spring that overflows for you
like a warm summer breeze 
through the trees for you.
In a candle glow,
everything I've ever been or will ever be
for eternity,
you'll be part of everything I ever do.
I will be for you.

Life Not A Contest

Your contest I don't want to be in my friend
You want our lives to be a forever contest
Your best friend you always say that I am
Do you always need to be one up on me

I get something new and tomorrow you have it too
I get an illness and you have it or had it only worse
I say I love something and you always loved it first
I want to be me and you be you, as life isn't a contest 
to me.

Beer Pong Balls

-Sing along to Jingle Bells-


Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you sink, the more I drink.
It's Christmas, let's get drunk!

Heeeeeyyyy!

Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you make, the more I take.
It's Christmas, lets get drunk!


Drinking Michelobe... Sipping on some Jack...
We just made two cups... Give us the balls back!
Ha. Ha. Ha.
Guys can finger cups... Girls know they can blow...
I'm hall of fame, In this game, cause I drink like a pro

OOOOhh!

Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you sink, the more I drink.
It's Christmas, let's get drunk!

Heeeeeyyyy!

Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you make, the more I take.
It's Christmas, lets get drunk!


A day or two ago... Drinking Miller Light...
I had won eight games, and then got in a fight...
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!
We ran out of beer... Had to get some more...
If I'm alive, then I can drive, let's all go to the store!

OOOOhh!

Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you sink, the more I drink.
It's Christmas, let's get drunk!

Heeeeeyyyy!

Beer pong balls! Beer pong balls!
Landing in my cup.
The more you make, the more I take.
It's Christmas, lets get drunk!

My Singing Hairdresser Friend


I have a singing friend
he is my hairdresser
He lives a simple life
Wondering if tomorrow
will bring the sorrows and worries
A small place to stay, together
with his old and sick mother 
Food on the table to day
but what about tomorrow


I have a singing friend
he is my hairdresser
He think a lot and he
worries about the future
The sun is shining but he do
not know what tomorrow will bring


I have a singing friend
he is my hairdresser
He sing in a language
I do not understand
He sings about love,
passion and romance
Eyes smiling as he sings,
but the face is still not happy


I have a singing friend
he is my hairdresser
He is amazing with his
scissors and comb
He makes me feel so beautiful
Smiles at me in the mirror
and sing a little bit more
Happiness is now
but what will the future brings
my singing hairdresser friend

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Our glance

This glance we share
With mirrored laugh
It fills my head
And makes me ache
Never to trial
But ever to share
And live unto
This common bond

And I smile...

For you
With you 
In you

And you see it
But know our grasp
Is one of distance
No means to touch
Remaining only 
In the quotes 
Which spiel
And linked eyes

To My Angel Mother

I count my blessings everyday to have a mom like you.
You’ve always been there come what may, to lift my mood when blue.
You say that God sent me down as an angel just for you,
But really God let me choose, I swear to you that’s true.
I saw that we could always be there for one another,
And that’s why God sent me down I chose you for my mother.

I am the woman I am today because you raised me so,
You taught me well and helped me grow, and then you let me go.
You are my mother first of all, but now you’re my friend too.
I never strayed all that far, I like to stay close to you.

Our relationship is a special one I’m sure you would agree.
When I am needed I shall come, you can always count on me.
I know that you feel the same, I am always welcome home.
A warm embrace, a happy face no matter where I roam.

You mean so very much to me, you know that it is true.
I’d walk the very fires of hell, if that’s what I had to do,
To stay the ever loving daughter, and be best friends with you.

Staring Into My Own Reflection(Inspired by Rain Cerdiwin Keetly)

if you can see into the depths of my heart 
you would hear it sing the saddest song 
for those who have looked for meaning in tragedy 
for those have suffered terminally
for i have fallen just like them
i have been forsaken 
i've looked into your eyes and i see my own reflection 
i see the tears you have cried
i know you are alone and afraid 
your innocence betrayed 
but look into these eyes 
i have struggled and suffered just like you 
grab my hand you'll no longer be alone 
just think this through
for i have fallen just like you
let's stop this trend of sinking
for we are not alone
together we can break this threshold
locked in this embrace
together we will not break
bound together by something stronger than super glue
will you think this through? 
will you realize that i'm just like you? 
just look into this heart
don't let this world tear us apart
for i have suffered just like you
together we shall never fall
nothing can push our backs up against a wall
we will break through! 
believe in me! i believe in you!

Secretly Obsessed

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

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

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

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

I Want To Save You

I will take this challenge on.
I want to save you,
I want you to make it through alive.
I know the person you are,
I know what you think of,
I know what you want to do.
I am here for you, and you know that.
I always have been here for you,
And i always will be here for you.
God is there for you.
You cant say that you are alone, 
Because your not,
you have me, and you have God.
I know you may not have your parents, 
But you have us.
We are your army,
We will protect you from evil.
We will save you from yourself.
We will keep you alive.
I will take this challenge on.
I want to save you,
I want you to make it through alive.
I know the person you are,
I know what you think of,
I know what you want to do.
I know all you want to do is die.
I know you just want to end it all.
But i could not live without you.
I need you just as much as you need me.
I will fall apart if you are not here with me.
We both are having the same problems.
We have to get through this together.
I dont want to hear the words "Good-bye" come out of your mouth.
I dont want to find you dead on the floor surrounded by blood. 
You know that will tear me apart.
And i know if you ever saw me like that it would tear you apart too. 
Lets make a promise that neither of us will ever see one of each other like that.
Not unless the impossible happened.
I want to help you.
I dont want you to leave the world in this way.
I want you to live life to its fullest.
I Love You, and i want to see you live.
I will take this challenge on.
I want to save you,
I want you to make it through alive.
I know the person you are,
I know what you think of,
I know what you want to do.
I am here for you, and so is God.
Never forget that.
Remember that you are not alone.
Your not alone.

Make it or Break it

Don’t fret!!
Don’t make enemies with me!
Just make friendship with me
And y’all will be my friends
But be careful once you make 
friendship with me
Cause it does not weigh tones 
to destroy.
Choice is yours then, you can 
Make it or Break it.

The perfect moment

I just had a moment 
When the window was open
I smelled the fresh air
It was a feeling I couldn’t bare

I was sitting on my bed
With my hands to my head
I began to cry 
You probably want to know why

The tears that role down my face 
The feeling of pain is not the case
The effects of my tears is Joy
What is the cause of this story?

Have you ever felt the moment when everything is right?
When your muscles aren’t tight
When you have the greatest friends
And the perfectly cool winds

When the perfects guy sweeps you off your feet
It’s like the perfect feeling of spring heat
No to cold and not to hot
The perfect moment is what I just caught

Remember you

I open my eyes
to another day
as the sun climbs
I fade away
im carried to a place where i feel no pain
carried to a time before you went away

I still feel you close, feel you here
in this life we chose its all so clear
when I remember you, remember you

I close my eyes
from another day
as the moon blinds
I fade away
im carried to a place where i feel no pain
carried to a time before you went away

I still feel you close, feel you here
in this life we chose its all so clear
when I remember you, remember you

Voices

They are all in my head, all day and all night
I hear them talking, telling me something's not right
They come from all directions, my ears never rest
recalling words from the ones I thought I knew best

My family my friends, those closet to me, telling
me things I refuse to see.
They've been buried within so long and so deep
like angry little children refusing to sleep

Some yell loudly, some whisper soft
they speak of the times and the dreams that were lost
and all these times I've refuse to hear, from people
and places I held so dear.

I've been so let down, my pride has been shattered
My heart has been broken, as if I didn't matter
It's a harsh lesson these voices within
makes me realize I've only one true friend
Thank you lord for opening my eyes, to people
that hurt me and tell me lies.
God's comfort and love will pull me through
from all the bad things these voices do.

Pieces of Eternity (Seasons Finale)

Maybe it’s unacceptable 
Live a life capable of a true fable 
True friends never end 
But take you back to where it all began 
But hey misery gave us something to believe in 
Stress became a greater award as we achieved sin 
What could I say? Our savior died on a cross tough as pig skin 
Never once cried over the loss 
Forbidden fruit, Eden garden 
Excuse me, my lord, I beg your pardon 
And so what if these medics carry life in a carton 
But I ain’t trippin 
Simply because this is me until my dying day 
Please stop crying, you know I can’t stay 
I’m going to be the same until my dying day 
Over in that casket is where I’m trying to lay 
That’s right until my dying day 
True lost souls from the dark side 
Forever, we as mortals ride 
Peace is nothing, I fend for quiet time 
Rebels in riot lines 
Previous high school graduates 
Symbols of an adjective running toward fate 
True personality suffer the privilege of inmates 
How could you hesitate to ask 
There’s no stranger under this mask 
Lonely and unholy, who’s there to console me? 
I want to get away, forever restless 
You can see my similarities with the ocean 
I’m stress less 
Because this is me until my dying day 
Please stop crying, you know I can’t stay 
I’m going to be the same until my dying day 
Over in that casket is where I’m trying to lay 
My son, my friend 
We are but pieces of eternity 
Mesh on, mesh off 
Even at our best times we’re soft 
Who’s to say I’d regret my decision 
To lead a sinners life without God’s supervision 
On a one man mission 
And I know I don’t come around much 
Got my palms in reality 
Searching for something softer to touch 
Whisper in my ear, death makes me blush 
And Hell only flatters me 
One and one, through matter the winds scatter me 
I ain’t trippin, baby girl get off your knees 
You’re in the arms of a future me 
And I can’t see heaven from a distance 
Fire me over clouds like a piston 
Marching through blood 
But it’s all mud and water to Darkhouse 
Stand still let me mark my spouse 
Live my life as an outcast 
How could you even picture me at my last? 
Dear lord show some mercy on my followers 
Bless those that swallow dust to follow us 
No need to borrow sympathy 
Unforgiving sorrow made my enemies envy me

On her way

The princess calls me out tonight 
She looks so beautiful, strong and bright
Tears stream down my face 
As I look at my darling with her shining knight

taking her away 
shes so beautiful today 
I know he'll love you till the end 
Forever, we'll be friends

Baby, Its hard to see you go 
Leaving us for this young lad
You wont be around, but i'll be glad 
You deserve more than this whole world 
Show mummy everything you hold

My darlings leaving 
to start her life
I can tell you, this one thing 
She will be the most amazing wife

taking her away 
Shes so beautiful today 
I know he'll love you till the end
Forever, we'll be friends

The Touch of a Stranger


I feel the connection, from the internet winds
The touch of a stranger, around every bend
I feel every song, I feel every wrong, all the cries, all the whispers
all the deep desperation, each heartfelt expression

     They reach out to touch me, and I am enthralled
     So many voices, I want to recall

I have visited places, I wouldn't have known
They lend me an ear and a kindly embrace
The faces are tiny, some never appear
But the journey has been one that has helped me to grow

Here from the archives that clutter my mind 
They listen so patiently, time after time
To words I have stuttered, words that have rhymed
To all my joys and all my sorrows
All of my wishes and hopes for tomorrow

     
     They reach out to touch me, and I am enthralled
     So many voices, I want to recall

You offer a page for all of my stories
I listen to yours, the joys and the worries
And when hearts are heavy, you offer your hand
With a bevy of troubles that may weigh me down
I will scatter my tears, right here on the page
Finding the comfort that comes to my aid

You share all your words, I show you my heart
You show how you care....and did from the start

As I scatter my poems and you share your own
A bond has united, until we have grown
I can click a small mouse, and once again know
Friend touching friend, is behind every poem


     You reach out to touch me, and I am enthralled
     So many voices, I want to recall

Best Friends

When close friends depart this life
And voice, by time, is stilled.
There's left within our hearts a void
With fond memories to be filled.

In dawns muted hours, I still recall
Jerry's witticism as if today;
Though recent years have bolted
Since time whispered him away.

Theretofore I'd regarded not pain
As being part of our friendship's cost.
Until death's gurney slowly passed
And I beheld the friend I'd lost.


Details | Lyric | |

God Forgives

Have you ever felt hopeless?
Thinking there's no one to care.
Is there someone in your past?
At whose memory you stare.

Don't take the hide off yourself
Or think perhaps your not decent.
For mistakes you have made
Even if they've been most recent.

For we spend our entire lives
Wrestling with thorns in our flesh.
For the good seed and bad
Are two that never will mesh.

And you can love other people
Though one day they've hurt you.
Like we hurt God each day
In things we've said or failed to do.

We all face temptations daily
Of one stripe or another.
God was tempted but sinned not
Nor tempts he any other.

Though we try hard as we may
To live a committed life above sin;
While in this earthly body
We're inclined to mess up again.


Written for a special friend, Shirlene

Silver Thumb

She’s  the girl, the girl with the tender touch
A spider's touch
Such a cold thumb
Beckons you to enter her web of sin
But don't go in

colorful  words she will pour in your ear
But her  lies can't disguise what you fear
For a silver man knows when she's kissed him
It's the kiss of death from

Miss Silver Thumb
handsome  man beware of her heart of silver
This heart is cold

Silver words she will pour in your ear
But her lies can't disguise what you fear
For a silver man knows when she's kissed him
It's the kiss of death from

Miss Silver Thumb
handsome man  beware of her  heart of silver

She loves only silver
Only silver
She loves silver
She loves only silver

My Friend Shirlene

Since the year of our first greeting
The time has slowly whispered by.
Now once again old friends are meeting
No need to lament or question why.

God saw a void where once you dwelt
Knowing a circle had been long broken.
He restored the kinship that once I felt
A friendship much more than just token.

In a God swept area of a fragile heart
Is a compartment reserved and true.
God readied this special place at the start
When he gave me a burden for you.

Others cannot visit this location or rend
For I alone, am privileged to free tours.
It allows me to call you my best friend
Without your having to call me yours.


Details | Lyric | |

How Long, Shirlene?

Many years have stealthily slipped
Since that first time we met.
Can you recall the circumstances?
Or has mind chosen to forget?

For sure some shadowy water
Under time's bridge has flowed.
Have your steps, like mine, 
Become deliberate and slowed.

Has the hair that once was brown
Become teased with wisps of gray?
Have our long ago conversations
Become lost memories of today?

You were young and independent
With a heart unlike the weather.
While chosen paths caused a parting
God's love has us back together.

The years have chanced me to reflect
And one thought have i held true.
Casual friends aren't meant to last
But true friendships always do.

As I re-embrace this friendship
From life's lessons, Lord, let me learn.
That what I put into our friendship
Determines the friend found in return.

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...

Stillness, Whispers Shirlene

For years I've designated no best friend
Since time whispered my best away.
But lately the wind has whispered a name
A name that long had been at bay.

I don't know why God has so chosen
To tattoo this person into my mind.
But He unveiled afresh a tenured friend
Whom I'd lost and could not find.

Her down to earthiness makes her special
That quality she possesses inside.
Making no pretenses other than who she is
Inducing feelings that I can't hide.

I've been blessed in life with many friends
Only two, have left me reeling.
My departed friend Jerry enriched my life
Now for her I've a like feeling.

So when quiescence whispers names to me
Only one can I specify as best.
The one placed with my wife at the pinnacle
Standing shoulders above the rest.

In My Eyes

Find a way to me. A way you will find. See the colors, In my eyes. Drain the grey, And the black. Bring the color, In my eyes. See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. See the rainbow inside. To think I went insane. You weren't mine. That's what would keep me sane. Dreams and flashbacks come into view. Thinking of what could we've been, Thinking of the pictures of you, Thinking of what we had, I knew I was doomed. See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. Much of darkness is in my eyes. Haven't you noticed I've been down? Showed my all the lies, Do you know in my tears, I drown? See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. See flashing of blue, Flashes of green, Flashes of brown. If you search for me, Search for my eyes, There I will be found. There I will wait, There I will cry, There I will relate, There I will die. ~ORIGINAL~ <3 Evalina Elena Eshiii E>

Understanding VS Acceptance

Don't try to reside within my head
Transforming me to be like Joe or Sam.
Merely try to be a friend instead
Accepting me, like God, the way I am.

For you can't crawl into my skin
Or experience first hand, my pain.
Unless you've walked where I've been
You shouldn't hold me in disdain.

Thoughts I have, How can you know?
Unless opting with you to share.
When through unrest I chose to go
I didn't leave our friendship there.

Realizing that I fit not into your mold
And allowing no clutter in my head. 
For God, gave individually, a lot to hold
Don't try to transform me, accept instead.

In others, seek good, and it you'll find
Judge not on looks, faith or creed.
For in my intellect there hangs a sign
My thoughts are for friends, it reads.

Today is Your Day

Happy is the day a baby is born.
Happy are the parents of a new born.
Happy are the siblings of the new born.
Happy are the relatives to the family.
Happy are friends and well wishers.
Happy is everyone who appreciates God's Gifts.

It is wonderful to experience parenthood.
It is wonderful to experience sibling rivalry.
It is wonderful to have an inclusion to the family.
It is wonderful to have someone to love.
It is wonderful to have someone to love you.
It is wonderful to celebrate procreation.

Today you remember your coming to the world.
Today your parents remember your first word.
Today your siblings rejoice with you.
Today your relatives celebrate with you.
Today friends and well wishers appreciate you.
Today everyone felicitate with you.

Here comes a day for you to be really happy.
Be lost in the celebration of Goodness.

INDEPENDENCE DAY

Today is the day I've been longing for
The day good things came together
The day of first steps,and shrinking growths
You could have knocked me down with a feather
A day when our dreams look like coming true
A wonderful time for me and you
A time for miracles and love without end
I'll love you forever my darling,my friend

Shirlene's Three Days

A calm has come amidst a storm
At last, at last, I've finally found.
Peace came to me, as bees to swarm
As fleas to an aging old hound.

My burden scale reads faint to lifted
Your sails are trimmed and course set true.
Sad thoughts of you though oft I've sifted
Have vanished like this mornings dew.

Unpleasant memories I've interred deep
Beyond my intellect bell's faint tingle.
No more into my psyche dare they creep
Or with my pleasant thoughts to mingle.

But you haven't moved from our space
You'll always be foremost on our minds.
And in our heart's your special place
Is still filled with a Godly love that binds.

So when your life seems less up than down
View those days as just another life test.
Paste on a smile and chase that frown
And seek God's help to just do your best.

Help Her

I started to write you this song
The day that everything went wrong
You think I have it all together
And that I’m as light as a feather
You can’t see the pain from my past
All I ever do is see you fast
You want your life to be perfect
It’s not fair you excel in every subject
It was fine when you were by yourself
My life story is somewhere on a shelf
Now you’re taking someone else down with you
We all used to be stuck together like glue
I can see your pain
I will always feel I’m the one to blame

What Hurts

You know what hurts the most
what hurts the most is when you a total stranger treats you better than who you`re 
with
It hurts the most when you turn to your friends,and they`re the ones that ends up 
hurting you the most.
It hurts the most when you go to your family for comfort, and in return of what you 
ask for they turn their back, stick their nose up at you as if you were a stranger off 
the street.
It hurts the most when kids are having kids.
It hurts the most when females no longer respect their values as a LADY, 
MOTHER, and COMPANION.
It hurts the most when men don`t respect women for what they are WORTH.
It hurts the most when you put your all,then to watch it just slip away right in your 
face and you can`t do absoutely anything about it.
It hurts the most when you see people who are addicts.
It hurts the most when we as society can`t see that the government don`t really 
care about us.
It hurts the most when those who are fortunate can`t look at for those less 
fortunate.
It hurts the most when you see how the world is.
It hurts the most when society can not respect and overlook me as being black, a 
lady, and a LESBIAN.
It hurts the most when young boys and girls are not getting the right information 
aboutschool, sex, and drugs.
Final It hurts the most when people forget there is a GOD.

Missing You

I miss your fingertips
Running across my skin
I miss the way you'd look at me
With that cute little grin

I miss the way you danced around
And when you'd whisper in my ears
I miss the comfort you always brought
When you wiped away my tears

I miss your singing and your jokes
And how you'd have me laughing and kicking on the floor
I miss the way you took care of me
Whenever I had an ache, pain, or sore

I miss the way you'd kiss me
With your sweet soft lips
I miss the way you'd hold me
With your hands placed on my hips

I miss the times you'd stare at me,
And compliment my beauty
I miss how you protected me
As if it was your duty

I miss all the fun we had
Like times we'd sing together
I miss all the serious mushy stuff
Like making promises of forever

Most of all, I miss your love
I miss you as my best friend
So when I pray about the important things
I pray that this will never end

No Better Friend

When darkness encompasses about you,
And it seems your world's tumbling down.
Just look to Jesus who will lift you up,
And spread His love all around.

For His love is all eternal,
His mercy and grace is your friend.
He'll never leave nor forsake you
And he'll be there 'til the end.

For somewhere over the rainbow,
The sun comes shining through.
The darkness of night is past shadow,
And you'll know He walks beside you.

Believe that you're never alone,
Let Jesus be your guide.
Trust Him, for He'll take care of you
No matter or what err' betide.

So anchor your soul in Jesus,
For on Him you can depend.
Nobody can do you like Jesus
There is no better friend.

Forgive Me (Sorry)

Forgive me
I don't know what I do
The things that hurt you
Forgotten who are you

I just want to make you happy
I want to see that smile
I have not intended to make you hurt
When I realised it all this while

Forgive me
I don't know what I do
Never try to hurt to you
Almost forgetting who are you

The flowers that bloom your heart
It had fades away
It is because of me
I took all your heart away

Don't want us to be apart
I tried again
I promised not to fail
I promised to finally understand

Forgive me, my dear
I don't know what I do
I never want to hurt you
I don't forget who are you

Forgive me..

Friendship

Friendship is in the air,
everywhere you go.
Friendship shines even when it snows.
Friendship involves either he or she,
While you can hear the sound of the sea.
But only if it could be,
an unbreakable bond that we shall see.
We will be the best of friends,
until it comes to the end.
We will build a safe and secure relationship,
that will always seem to glow and shine,
because whats yoursis mine.
While time flies,
and cars past by,
the only thing I can remember that we've been friends since september.

Nightmare

Standing alone in the night Dark all around Something doesn't seem quite right I hear a sound Like a werewolf howl Coming from all around And the noise of an owl Piercing red eyes appear Lightning strikes from the sky Death is seeming rather near And I don't want to die Am I dreaming? I hope I'm dreaming? Nightmare Confronting everything that I fear Nightmare The seeming reality of everything I see and hear Down into the ground I fall Deep into the dark Evil says my name, I hear it call The devil's made his mark I run, through the endless cave Stumbling through to find there's no way out Everything is what I've gave I've given up, all I want to do is scream and shout Nightmare! This is everything I fear Nightmare! I think the end is coming near I hope I'm dreaming I wish I was dreaming But I know this is my fate Lucifer, he can't wait To take my soul away There's nothing more I can do or say Nightmare! Losing everything I ever cared for Nightmare! Losing myself even more Nightmare! Nightmare! Nightmare! What I never want Nightmare! My mind is does haunt It don't care What I fear Cause with it, it grows I'm hating everything it knows I wish it wasn't real Everything I see and feel But it's true And just like a Nightmare!

I'm Lost Without You

I can't help myself 
how does it feel to know that I love you, Baby
I gave you my heart lovingly
I was not trying to buy your love
from past relationships I know that is impossible
I am just a generous person who appreciate you
you captivated me with your smile
it hurts so deeply that I will not be able to kiss your lips again
to know that I won't be able to make love to your mind
is a feeling that is not so kind
I LOVE YOU 
I honestly love you for who are
I could not change for you over night 
if I could I would do it with all my might
You mean so much to me, My Ivory Baby
your lips the color of a rose
your eyes are the color of ebony
your hands so pretty
you can be a hand model
I love your walk 
the sound of your voice when you talk
I am going to miss you more tomorrow than I do today
I pray GOD will guide you in my life again 
some day

You Touched My Heart

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

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

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

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

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

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

Friends

I remember when we were growing up and the first day I started school.
I was nervous as could be, and then you walked in trying to be so cool.

As the year progressed we became very close, and you took me
under your wing, and I think thats what I admired about you the most.

I remember by the time we reached middle school people thought we were
related,and as I think back about how shy I was and how I am now just
makes me elated.

By the time we reached high school we did just about everything together,
and vowed that even after graduation no matter what we would remain friends
forever.

College came and we both knew that we would regret this day, for I knew 
you were the smarter one therefor I knew we would have to go our sererate
ways.

The years have past and time has been good to us. Both or us married, kids
our health, and our friendship still in tact is better than any amout of wealth.

People say time goes on and accept things for the way that they are,
but I'm here to tell you our friendship will never change, and I know
that in my heart because no matter what the distance we were friends
from the very start.

Would never be apart,

Rainbows

Rainbows are for hope. 

Raindrops splatter 'gainst my window     
Music from the sky; 
Each crystal drop a mellow bell 
A gentle melody to tell     
me ...that your love is mine. 

 Sunlight scatters thru my window     
Warm touches sent to me 
Each photon beam a kiss from you 
Sent to me across the blue...     
 A comfort wished here tenderly. 

 April winds caress my window    
 Breath from clouds above; 
Daring me to share the passion, 
Give my heart in wild abandon,     
 Drinking deeply of your love. 

 Rainbows Bless my Open window      
Sun-drops & rain combined. 
The ends connecting us together 
Distances no longer matter...

                  In great respect of the band I grew up listening to
                       as sure as Mom passed down Saturday Chores 
                      for I had been chosen to scrub bathroom floors `

                    Yet a familiar sound would bring me to keep scrubbing
                       The red album, The blue album , The White album 
                        Then .. Abbey Road , always remembering the sad look on
                  Ringo's face ,  something hard to understand underneath~
                       
                      I get it now, what you were saying all those years ago ,
                    the many sad lonely tears , secret tears , secret fears 
                    For Maxwell's Hammer was a real one . It wanted silence

                    Going back ..remembering when John Lennon died 
                      I was in Arkansas saddened with the world .
                      Then seeing his face saying " Drag isn't it " 
                      No .. this was not my hero in music and song .

                      he was a stand in hired William , he filled his shoes 
                      bringing diversity to create so much beautiful music from loss

                       One left standing , alone;; grief struck on back cover ~

I Just Want My Life Back

Dedicated to everyone at Freedom Middle School
06-07
I love you guys with all my heart

The hallways are full of laughter, 
The friends are full of love
The good friends are playful,
Giving each other a little shove.
The classes were a bit of a challenge,
The tests more of a breeze
Studying was the hard part
But it put our minds at ease.
The drama was overrated
The fights were way too many
But the make-ups and break-ups made a difference
And made us think a plenty.
The teachers were our light
That got us to where we are
Even connections, useless as they seem to be,
Will help us go really far
The hearts were full of words unsaid
As we took our final steps
Outside the doors, into a new life
As we drew in our final, middle school breath.
The eyes were full of spilling tears
That cascaded down our cheeks
The sun was shining, so how could we
Be feeling so very bleak?
All of it is now a blur
I wish I could go back
And change everything that I had done
Just wipe it away to be packed.
But we can't change our mistakes in the past
And we can't relive our lives
As much as we wish we could return
To the place where our last tears together were cried.
The middle school years were the best
And we're sad to see them go
Especially those who didn't say a lot
Who didn't let their true love show.
We were alive when we were at school
Because we were with the people we loved
Our memories are the best token of that year
Even jokingly being shoved.
But now that all my friends are gone
Onto high school, seperate ones at that,
I'm still here, silently hoping
Wishing that I could go back.
But our time there was for the best,
And this has hit me with a hard SMACK!
I love everyone there, and now I have to say
I just want my life back.

I'm Sorry For Being So Cold

My words may feel so cold,
Yet this feeling of falling and 
Then trying to be so loving
Eventually misleads me to 
Feeling like she or myself 
Is gradually shoving my feelings 
Through an invisible door.

It's all so not worth 
Letting this sorrow corner me in,
My mind is wondering if I'm truly fine with
Having no one special in my own current life.

My reasons for trying to 
Move onwards from there
Were nothing but idealized dreams
Turning into unpleasant realities. 

Who knew that a few days 
After those euphoric moments
I would be realizing that 
The strings of my heart were pulled
By desires so unnecessary for healing 
My own inner strife.

My words may have been so cold,
But it's only because this sorrow I go through
Will always continue beyond tomorrow.

You don't deserve being 
My eternal object of depression,
Yet you are also even taking it 
All too simply to be the object
Of my true love and affection.

My feelings from loving you 
Were absolutely true,
But I now see I was so wrong 
In believing in my own naïve thoughts.
So fleeting was the beautiful 
Rendering of my soul,
Except that no one knew then 
That it was only a game of pretend.

Wanting my first kiss returned, 
Yet again I guess first can mean the worst,
So I guess I'll find someone 
Who will become my second best.
After telling you I can't love you anymore, 
I now feel as if I can finally rest.

My words were only so cold,
Because something in the depths of my heart
Was calling out to be heard.

In the end though I have released myself
From the bittersweet feelings I gained from 
My voice and feelings that once were forsaken.
I'm sorry for being so cold.

PLAY-BOY 1

You know why I run game? It's 'cause I'm a player
I'm the night in shining armor, she's a dragon, I'm gon' slay her
That means when I beat it up, I'm gonna kill it
Tell her keep our business to herself, don't spill it
Can't follow directions, then it's on to the next
Hope you get the message, not talking 'bout a text

I sleep with more chicks than a night-gown

Without 'em I'm like a sentence with no noun

For those who don't know that means incomplete

It's a race to get 'em first, I gotta' compete

They wanna be on the team, tryin' to make the cut

True player, show no feelings, keep 'em in a shell, walnut

Females fill my atmosphere, they mean the world to me

I got damsels galore, it's always plural with me

Got gangs of chicks, which one should I bang

They're steady in my face, sort of like some bangs

Hate when they try to lock me down, I'm not in jail

She starts talking 'bout marriage, then I'm gonna bail

Sometimes I need my space, like a vacant lot

I hate being congested, like a nose filled with snot

Hey, stop bugging me, you startin' to act like a knat

Before you go, give me head, I need it like a hat

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

IT'S YOUR FACE


the tempo of our souls
beats together across time
as images connect 
one world stops, we align.

and rhythm flows from the mouth 
oh soft with passion, complete
when affection pours through miles
i breathe you in, soupy> sweet.

chorus:

in night’s melody, words  bring 
a language heaving, i reply 
till  the starlight of a hum
enters in a moment, to fly
as voices ring through deep tones
to fly, climb right inside of me;
feeling you in warm silence
except, your face i want to see…
……..

then, a presence fills the room
reflecting one more thought, so fine
just as two, three whispers end
one world stops, and we align.

if missing you is part of this realm
then let all seasons find a way,
to bring the hours bright as fire
like a glow of morning’s replay.

chorus:

in night’s melody, words  bring 
a language heaving, i reply 
till  the starlight of a hum
enters in a moment, to fly
as voices ring through deep tones
to fly, climb right inside of me;
feeling you in warm silence
except, your face i want to see.

Actions Speak Louder than Words

Hello Everyone! It's been a long time but I'm back. This is a song I wrote based off a text message hope you enjoy it:)

I don't know where to start
All I know is you tore me apart
But that's ok, I'll live another day
Where to begin?
All I know is this has to end
No more fear, but before I go
Let me make one thing clear...

I don't hate you 
I hate all the things you put me through
It seems no matter how much good I do
You just go and stab me in the back
But you no, I love you to death
I think my actions are the opposite of hate don't you?
After all actions speak louder than words

I hope you understand
I'm letting go of your hand
No more pulling me down
I'll just leave without a sound
No longer your prey
But before I leave I have one thing to say...

I don't hate you 
I hate all the things you put me through
It seems no matter how much good I do
You just go and stab me in the back
But you no, I love you to death
I think my actions are the opposite of hate don't you?
After all actions speak louder than words

Is it getting through your head?
What we had is now dead
Time to lay it to rest
In it's bed, but before I leave
I have one thing to say
As the last tear is shed...

I don't hate you 
I hate all the things you put me through
It seems no matter how much good I do
You just go and stab me in the back
But you no, I love you to death
I think my actions are the opposite of hate don't you?
After all actions speak louder than words

Soul Sisters

Such an Amazing girl god put into my life.

He knew i needed you at that exact time

Funny when we met I thought you were to good for me

But when you approached me the sweetest girl I did meet.

From that day on we have never truly been apart cause I

carry you around everywhere in my heart. You have been the

rock when I needed a friend around, you have been the light

when the darkness consumed me and took away my sunshine

Even when were miles apart the phone connects us and keeps

our strongest bond. 17 years feels like such a short time but

I feel I have always had you in my life. Soul Sisters we were

meant to be.. You my beloved friend are such a fresh breeze

Even after a year apart it was like yesterday that we did part

so through the many miles and through the long hard road

I know this friendship will always survive. Your a burst of joy

to me each day I thank the Lord for the sweet blessing he gave!

DISTURBED CREATURE- Am I

A poem wrote by me, based on Person who is a deserving icon but still struggling hard with his career life and addressed as disturbed creature.

DISTURBED CREATURE--> Am I ??       BY Mrs.Madhavi Suyog Pagare

Am I so insane, Am I so mad,
Dramatic mood of mine is so die hard.
Destroyed my peace, Shattering my dreams,
People call me as disturbed creature.
As like mounting the pain, attenuating the drain!!

Digesting my feelings lying inside me,
Strangely nobody cared, call me sick.
Teasing me lavishly and my heart is pricked,
Hurted me like hell when addressed me as stupid.
As like showering rain, missing on the lane!!

Time lapse in journey of life,
Can hamper anybody on its path.
When I see innate reflex of mine,
I always use to brightly shine.
Though possessing every job attributes of mine,
I never thought the authorities will ditch and hamper my career line.
Falsely acting bloody swine, making my image as fade as wine.
As like affecting harmonious divine, my soul was, as is transparently pristine!!

Destroying me and testing my patience, Never wanna give up.
Transformed deviations, wanna rightly screw up.
I wanna raise up, I wanna shake up.
I wanna wake up, Tranquilize my mind.
Unzip the professional life compressed by the culprits.
Wanna explore myself, driving the motivated heights of journey.
Lastly waiting for the optimistic opportunity.
Cuffing the suspect ,I wanna rejoice by my pattern of life!! 

with Suyog Pagare

Friends are Treasures

Friends are treasures need not to be hunt
They come unpredictably just in front
Sent as blessings only for you
Sent from God to help you through

Priceless they are, no money can cost
Not like golds or diamonds, they can never be sold
Stolen like jewels, they can never be
For true friends stay with you eternally

Wishing a welcome to a new start

I try to imagine it being a reality,
A reality containing you and I.
Me being able to let you know,
I want you to know how I feel
With your undeniable body,
And my quite admirable touch.
Nothing would be strong enough,
Nope! Not strong enough to stop us.
Us? That is what clutches it all,
There is no us, nor could there every be.
I don't really know how to tell you this,
What you want is what I have.
I'll make you feel in ways unknown to you.
My touch will make it hared fro you to breathe.
These lips on your lips,
Well it would make that poor tattered mind unwind.
There would be a halt on time itself,
As your fingertips caressed my body.
I wish I knew that this fascination could exist.
I want you to hold me, I always have.
I see you right before me, 
Yet you still seem so far away.

Being Kindhearted

Kindheartedness is being quite generous 
A considerate attitude that is from the inside 
No price tag is placed on being accommodating 
Being benevolent and affectionate is cordial 
Willing to give everything for nothing in return.

A trait that is not always an inherited tendency 
One to be heartily imbibed and truly developed 
A behaviour that stands one out in the crowd 
Exhibiting true amiable and amicable qualities 
Portraying brotherly,sisterly,fatherly & motherly love. 

When you are humane and quite propitious 
They say you are beneficient and philanthropic 
When you are soft-hearted or tender-hearted 
They talk of you as being thoughtful & understanding 
You are a bounteous bonhomie & benign personality. 

Exuding a calid courteous and altrustic aura 
Places you on a pedestal different from others 
Extraneous factors may want to impede on you 
The propensity of your kindheartedness surpasses 
Showcasing your nature as a an outstanding being.

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 dozen roses of many colors I have sent to you
A rainbow of colors to show your beautiful moods

A dozen roses to show my love for you my friend P.D.

Friendships

Friendships are akin to an established tree,
In order for both to flourish and survive;
It necessitates a certain measure of attention,
Just to maintain, permitting both to thrive.

Many times friendships become constrained,
Due to circumstances that living presents.
Most often we're occupied and through neglect,
Have forgotten what a relationship represents.

I will not always be correct in my affairs,
But I'll generally be following my heart.
I'll never intentionally leave you hurting,
But nurturing your friendship as fine art.

Frequently I present myself with this question, 
If my friendship to another  could be traded;
Would it be for sale and / or at what price,
Or by no means would you be persuaded.

Grandma Was Dancing

She was a tappin' to the tunes...
of those Mississippi blues...
step-pin' out, in her white...
Pat-en-leather shoes,

We were a watchin' her a prancin',
all through the kitchen, dancin'...
for she was so...hot & sizzlin'...
hummin' to those Mississippi tunes...

Funny curlers too, upon...
her head...for a new... Hair dew,...
she was, a swirlin'-in that bakers apron,
when her head...star-ted a bobbin' to...
those Mississip-pi blues,

'Pots were a knockin'...
Grandma a sockin' down all she brews,
while that kettle there was whistlin',
in har-mo-ny, with them good ole...
good ole...mississip-pi moves,'

That floor there, was a bouncin'
holdin' hands we were a jumpin',
an-a hoppin' In the kitchen, to those...
                  sounds ...
Where Grandma's feet were a stompin',
In her new...New-white-sexy-pat-en-
leather-shoes...

After the Party Ends

Got my crazies by my side
Drunk on vodka cyanide
Setting fire to the night
That’s the way we live the life

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends

We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

And I’ll be seeing you there
Fists pumping in the air
Gonna jump, we’re gonna swing
Gonna dance, we’re gonna sing

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends
We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

There’s a place where time stands still
Far from things that make me cry
And I would take you there tonight
So we could stay young all our lives

You’ve been my friend when I was down
I’ll miss you when you’re not around
And I will think of you
In all the good I’ve found
In every light, in every sound

And I’ll be seeing you there
Fists pumping in the air
Gonna jump, we’re gonna swing
Gonna dance, we’re gonna sing

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends
We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

Got my crazies by my side
Drunk on vodka cyanide
Setting fire to the night
That’s the way we live the life

Before we go our separate ways
We’re gonna roar, we’re gonna rage
Never forget we were friends
Long after the party party party party ends
We’re gonna stay friends
Long after the party party party party ends

Come

Come 
Come
Come
my hands are cold,
my feet are numb,
I’ve been waiting for you to come.

Listen to the rhythmic sound of the drum,
it is summoning you to come,
come and minster to my blazing soul,
and help me achieve my dancing goal.

Leap beyond the shadows of death,
and purge me with your mystical breath,
tear off my sleepless gown,
and cool me down with your powerful sound.

Follow the sound of the drums and come,
If you don’t come I will be undone,
thousands of them surround the gate,
come before it's too late.

Moan
groan
wiggle and scream,
entrance me in your solitary dreams.
pull out your dangling whistle
stretch my body,
breath upon my throbbing flesh,
and captivate me in your powerful net.

Release your knob and come,
shoot me with your inflated gun,
I have waited for this eternal bliss,
but something stands amiss.

My Special Friend and Neighbor

When we frist met she greeted me with so much Love and concern 
I was excepted from the very beginning 
She had a story to tell and I had a listening ear
We talked for hours and laughed for days 
Some of the things she shared were amazing
We expressed our sorrors and our good times
Her hospitally was always full of grace and centered around me
When I walked in she had a smile on her face
As I think back at the things we shared and the short time 
We had together it  brings tears to my eyes and sadens me 
She is gone now but I thank God for sending her to me 
and the joyful memories that we shared will last for a life time

Antigone

I am the face of misery
My life, a dissonance of autumn and spring,
The years are written in the same
Lugubrious, nostalgic grey
How can it be the author to blame?
I cannot scream this all away…
Burn nor Bleed this all away…
To Death I am Ordained

Lacuna ever growing
With Velvet sheets of life flowing
Aeons apart of my "royalty"
Under the mask the cannot see...
Can you dispel this tragedy:
Antigone - Epiphany failing

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

No words of hope
No words of hate
Do I have Lenore to send to me:
The sordid child of Thebes
Caught In the longest nightmare
life - the slowest way to die

I know this is my life 
But I'm not under control
under the mask the will see
Just Another Human

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

If it must be…
Then just kill me,
(Antigone) sing me out of reality;
I wear this dissonant crown of shame
(Antigone) Of a kingdom's disdain
I hate to be this way... normalcy's bane
(Antigone) Here comes the edict, to blame
The sordid child of Thebes,
This is me,
Antigone

Can you dispel my life; this tragedy?
Can you control the storm in my mind?
I'm asking you: can you rid me
Of The Curse of Antigone?

Unknown Feelings

We have been friends,
  A long time now, 
I love you more each day,
  I know you have a woman 
Of your own,
So I dont let the words
  Get away.
When I see, what she does 
To you.
  It makes me want to cry,
After all the pain you've
  Been through.
I feel like I should try.

Let me just love you.
  Let me show you what 
Is right.
  Let me put my arms around you
And, give you love tonight.
  Let me show you what your 
Missing,  from the evening
  To days light.  
You are my hearts 
desire, ive waited for my entire
Life.

  A man as fine as you, 
Should not be treated, so unkind.
  My thoughts are so confused
If only you knew, what was on my mind.
  She could never feel for you,
What I harbour within, my soul,
  Your that special man to me, 
One I long to hold, 
  
Is it not that obvious,
  The ups & downs we've shared.
 The memories both, good & bad
Our hopes, dreams, and fears.
  The arguments & disagreements,
Sometimes, you see my view.
  Friendship, love & trust, 
I also see that, do you?
When we share a greeting, 
a laugh or just a smile.
  Do you ever see or feel, 
The emotions that I hide?

Let me just love you,
  Let me show you what
Is right.
  Let me put my arms around
You, and give you love tonight.
  Let me show you what your 
Missing, from the evening to
Dayslight.  
  You are my hearts desire, 
Ive waited for my entire
  Life.

A lesson that ive learned in life
"Love does not wait"  
So here it goes,  I must convey
& spill my guts, with faith.
  Risking our friendship
Is such a scarey thought.
  But living with, the what ifs
Really truly hurts.
  Now my unknow feelings,
are, finally set free.
  Vulnerable yet honest, 
Hope you take a chance on me.

A Miracle For You

I wish I could help you each and everyone.
You light up my life and the same I would 
like to do for you.
I don't like seeing you feeling so sad.
If I could find that one thing to make it all 
better I surely would do it.
Could I sit by your side when you feel the 
need to hide from it all?
I would wipe away your tears and try to 
chase away your fears.
I would hold your hand and whisper soothing 
words to you until you fall asleep.
I pray for you to be free from all your pain and 
sadness today...tomorrow...and everyday hereafter.
I wish for you to be able to enjoy everything life has
to offer.
Please know that you my family and friends each and 
everyone of you mean the world to me.
For Christmas a miracle to you I would give...if only I could !!!

Miles

I write
my late night revelations
paint an image so clear-
so precise-
as if fine-tuned with a microscope.
I see the truth.
I now realize that what I need-
I want-
is YOU.
I don't know how I am going to make you see,
make you feel...
I need to make you know.
A simple touch is all I need
to delve into your mind and infect you.
But how to reach you?
You are hidden far away
within your own mind,
in maze of your own design.
Between us locked doors and endless traps,
mountains,
valleys,
rivers, lakes, oceans,
miles and miles of 
impassible terrain that keeps me apart,
keeps me from you!
We are two universes set to collide-
not to be destroyed,
but merge into one.
Set to collide, but keep missing our mark.
This is unbeknownst to you.
I keep the secrets within me.
How much longer can I wait-
how much longer until my silence
consumes me?
Until you break me?
I am deserted, alone,
left in desolation.
You are the answer to the questions,
the key to my freedom.
But you cannot reach me.
And you do not know what you are.
How much longer til my time runs out?

Those Younger Days

I used to be quite a character Back in those days when I was young When hanging out with all my friends We used to have so much fun Staying up all night Until we would suddenly see the sun Oh man I really miss those younger days Maybe gathering at someones house Whos parents would then be gone Turn the music up loud so when we got buzzed We would all start to sing along Some would take a toke or two And it would sometimes do them wrong But man I really miss those younger days When the party was over,you found a driver That's straight enough to drive you home You always make sure that you had one So you wouldn't be left there all alone Back in those good old days Nobody even cared about useing phones Oh man I really miss those younger days The next day you would take an aspirin Because that's what you did,to get through Not one of those pills or funky drugs That you so easily now get hooked on to Back in those older days That was all there was left to really do I sure do really miss those younger days

Friends For Life


I can't tell you how much your friendship means
How dear you are to me
Please always feel free to ask
When you need help to set you free
I can't think what I would do
If you were not a part of my life
I have so much respect for all that you do
I 'd like to think you'd call me if you were in strife.


My dear friend no matter where you go
whatever you do with your life,
Remember I'm the one whose here for you
A friend you can trust and on who you can rely.
You gave me hope and inspiration
You saw me through hardship and pain
You gave the things that I needed most
With you in my life I have so much to gain..

I can't stop thinking about you each day
Or about the help you have given to me
Our friendship is something I'll always hold dear
It is made of our spirits, that are wild and free
Thank you for all the memories we've  made
Along life's pathways that we together went along
We sang and we laughed on this journey of friends
Our friendship is special it will always live on.

Umid

Umidin topragi  sevgi
Ofkem olsa  gozyasi
Tufan  olsa sondurse
Bitmeyen yanginini anilarin

Umidim sevginin atesi
Hikayesi anlatmakla  bitmez
Uyanirim kaygilanirima
Duslerim seni her gece 

Korkmadan yilmadan
Dusunurum yolunu
Duydukca adini uzaktan
Aglar yanarim her gece

Dalgalar ve ruzgarlar 
Ve bitmeyen yagmurlar
Yine kosarim umide
Nefesim aglatir beni
Dogarim yeniden umide

Umidin hayalinde sensiz
Yasarim gunahlarimi
Sesizligin olumunde
Sensiz her gece 

Kul olan agacim yeserse

Framed by Love

You asked me to make sure your husband didn’t drink that December day as I pushed your chair through glass-encased gardens. A friend in need you had always been, I could deny you nothing, but Paul lost it and left town when you died. Living just long enough to see your first grandchild born, it was a three-year battle before cancer put you in that wheelchair. Look at how lovingly Paul holds your hand here, standing by Chris whose smile lit our lives. Chris and I gave the eulogy together as you asked, but you knew that since Chris is with you now. Only weeks after your death did we learn of Chris’s cancer. Tell him I miss our travels as I embrace this photo with my heart’s frame of eternal love.
*For Sidney Lee Ann’s “Picture Frame” contest Dedicated to Jeanett, who saw her grandson born on Christmas before dying in January 2003. Our friend Chris died Christmas Day 2005. The photo makes me think how different life was when we spent all our free time together.

True friend

A true friend is a priceless gift.
Never dominates you
But an important part in you.
Unlike others who can falsely define you
A true friend will try to refine you.
When the rest see you as a perfect nobody
He sees you an important somebody.
With remarkable loyalty he never ceases to amuse
And he sees backstabbing as a total abuse.
You always contently cherish his presence
And ardently long for him in his absence.

That is what I feel about you loyal friend,
If you were existing in mathematics
To me your care would be like an exponential curve
Whose asymptote is infinity, you care infinitiously,
Pardon me if my last word does not exist in a dictionary
The thing is I just wanna show my gratitude, it’s necessary.
Your friendship is a symphony whose music sound is loud in my ear
But never tears my tympanic membrane, 
It causes tears somewhere else in me, in my eyes dear,
Tears of joy and happiness when you remind me I’m worthy,
 The core of your friendship is burly…

Happy New Year 2013

The year 2012 is so swiftly passing,
And late grow the days of December.
Soon, will remain, just our memories,
Only the good ones, lets remember. 

We'll find in our memories, some bad,
They're nestled in 'mongst the good.
And regret is also a part of our lives, 
The part we'd replace if we could.

But all memories are filed under past,
Over some lets not whine or mope.
But rightly expect more of the same,
As we're doing our utmost to cope.

Pity parties, I see, are for second best,
Not for those around us that we love.
The memories you gave us in 2012,
we've seen as God-sends from above.

Live My Life

I'm so tired of feeling down
Every day there's this cloud
Hanging over my head
But I know if I stopped looking back
Over and over at those stupid tracks
I left behind, think its time to clear 
my mind
And look ahead instead
Now I realize..

I wanna live my life
The way I want to
No one telling me what to do
I wanna live my life
For me and no one else
I need to find myself
I wanna live my life
Filled with mistakes,  
Learn a new lesson every day
I wanna live my life
No one telling me what's wrong or 
right
I just wanna live my life

Time to appreciate what I have
No regrets on what I could've had
My choices led me here
Took me down a road with love and 
fear
Haunted memories from the past
Time to take this weight off my back
Now I see crystal clear

I wanna live my life
the way I want to
No one telling me what to do
I wanna live my life
For me and no one else
I need to find myself
I wanna live my life
Filled with mistakes
learn a new lesson everyday
I wanna live my life
No one telling what's wrong or right
I just wanna live my life!

I'm done feeling down
As the sun shines through the cloud
I'm no longer looking back
At what I left behind
Now that I cleared my mind
I see everything!!!!

I wanna live my life
The way I want to
No one telling me what to do
I wanna live my life
For me and no one else
I need to find myself
I wanna live my life
Filled with mistakes,  
Learn a new lesson every day
I wanna live my life
No one telling me what's wrong or 
right!!
I just wanna live my life!!

Memories Washed With Tears

I awoke this morning early, 
       an ache within my soul;
 A longing, deep, beat at my heart 
        in waves hard to control.
Weeks have passed since you and I 
         stood together face to face;
I've searched the world around me, 
         yet none can take your place.

You shared a special part 
         of this life of mine;
Together we drank deeply 
         of youth's sparkling wine.
We seldom write a letter; 
          your voice I do not hear;
But many times before me 
          your image will appear.

Our hearts are bound together; 
         our thoughts still intertwine,
Though the distance now is great 
          between your home and mine.
Today I feel your presence 
          though I have not heard one word;
Friendship stretched across the miles, 
          my mem'ries gently stirred.

True friends find birth in God's great heart; 
          their roots grow strong and deep.
Your friendship is mine forever, 
          a treasure I can keep.
Today I'll spend in reverie, 
          a long and sweet review:;
I'll wash our memories with tears 
          and celebrate knowing you.

Fake Friend

I'm feeling sick from your two faced hypocrisy
When you say one thing and then you're doing another
Cold whispers behind my back you talk about me
Then you act like my best friend with no apology

Why do you beak these friendship rules
And why am I left a suffering fool
I'm left with thoughts of violence and then I'm feeling weak and passive
I'm now a massive walking talking contradiction
And I'm left believing the facts and fiction

It's all because of your backstabbing dealings 
I want to know your game and why I'm the victim of your play
I will not be left the loser of this game
I intend to stay strong and take my prize
As I will face you full on and cut you down to size

This may be hit and miss
But I will expose your cowardice
As you look into my eyes and see that I'm miffed 
And so sick of your ficticious recitals
Now you will realise for you to have kept two facing me was fatal

So answer to me fake friend your front is now broken
And you feel you're struggling to breathe
But now I've lost my use for sensitivity
Remember who crossed the line
I have one fast thought of does it matter at all
Then it all comes back that it's you who broke the rules

Now you've been confronted and your colour fades to grey
You feel your time ticking by as tomorrow turns into today
This was my revenge on you fake friend
My fake friend revenge!

Let Me In

You feel the warmth

sun on your bodies, your skin hot to touch

Got to let the burn go under

Your lips a blush

flowing the blood cells, this mouth can erupt

Skin of earth is rough don't rupture

and I say hey

hey

hey

What lovely evening; moon above my eye

and I say wait

wait

wait

Didn't think this evening...pressure's building high

I shield; a corpse

Something you wanted, you did have to say

but my tongue got caught right under

I need a road

Tires are heaving, this run can't be raced

let me fall, don't watch my blunder

And I say come

come

come

Sit beside me friend, I didn't say: Just let it end

And I say stay

stay

stay

I know my truths are hard to find, but you'll dig deep for a little lie

Let me in

Let me in

Let me in

I didn't say: Let it end

Just let me in

breath from my wind

You drank my taste

don't let it go to waste

You let me in

breath from my wind

You drank my taste

Don't let it go to waste

Don't let it go to waste

Don't let it go to waste

...


Just reach again; I'll pace.

Thank You Lord

For years I bore the burden for one lost soul,
That should the rapture come she'd not remain.
Inspiring her to seek God's face was my only goal,
That there was a Hell to shun and Heaven to gain.

She's Earthy and one for whom I grew to care,
A simple blue jeans and tee shirt kind of gal;
And if I could see into her heart I'd surely stare,
She's a woman that o'er the years became my pal.

She's grown so much from our first meeting day,
This growth recall prompts my smile to show.
For she now knows that Jesus is the only way,
From my hearts fullness come the tears that flow.


There is no feeling more gratifying or responsibility greater,
than the burden God gives you for the soul of another;
Shirlene, I hardly knew you when God placed you on my heart.
What a blessed day that turned out to be.

I need a friend

I need a friend right now
I need guidance
I need someone to show me how
How to just be.

I thought I was happy
I thought I liked me
I guess I am not the person
I thought I could be. 

I need a friend right now
someone to share my thoughts
someone to be my sounding board
someone who understands me
someone who realizes
I should not be ignored.

I know the truth that lies beneath the beauty and the smiles
I know the truth

But you see,
it is much easier to live a life of denial
You smile and grin,
laugh and pretend.

Oh, but still remains the dark behind the light
I know the truth.

One day the closet door will open
One day the make up will fade
and the world will know 
what I have known all along

You can't hide your pain
you can't store your fears
you can't bury your sorrows
you can't change what's done
you can't pretend your okay anymore
you can't be that person everyone wants you to be

The mask has been ripped from your face
and the world now knows
what I have known all along
you don't know how to live this life alone.
you are broken and scared
and fear that there
is no way for repair

The damage has been done
your life incomplete
you have been stripped
of all your strength and beat
you are left broken and scared
and no one is there.

You are alone 
and I have known this all along
I know the truth
I know I can't be alone

I need a friend right now.

Welcome to the Planet

Welcome to the planet
Wake me when it’s over
The dreamer’s always tempted
To come around and show her

And I just keep wastin my time
On girls that won’t love, me, like their wine
And it’s just too easy to blame
The rock and the system for causing my pain
And I just want you to know that I’m through
With being alone, when I’m with you 
And when you mask the truth with your lies
It just won’t get any better for the rest of your guys

And when you fall asleep
The night covers your tears
And the darkness sees you weeping
Cause your conscious can’t be cleared
This year you’re feeling colder
Your heart’s a little older
You haven’t found your soul mate
And now you think you’re too late

But one look inside of my eyes
Gives you the hope that there’s a guy
Who can make you feel happy and sad
And it’ll be worth it to feel that again

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.

Lost Years







For those we've met in life we've had some say,
Not why God introduced them there.
But whether we'd embrace, or back away,
Or permit leaving, trusting God for their care.

Between this separation and re-entry,
Passed a span of time counted as "Lost Years".
Missing days enumerated to a quarter century,
Yet, for us, were ensconced with love and fears.

As we now glance hinder, as if into a pool,
We weigh, if those lost years we could reverse.
Would years be found the same or less cruel;
Perhaps those imperative years were to rehearse?

So, our dear sister in Christ, rue not lost years,
For we feel God has put aside our best for last.
And as for sadness, let us bottle mental tears,
While basking in the goodness that He has cast.



The sum of our experiences have made us who we are today,

Isolation

How can I tell you?
I can't stay with you.

Neither I can give up on you.
Fear of losing you is losing me.
It feels like slow death every night.

But we are just stuck in our spaces!
Unable to connect from two feet distance.


Details | Lyric | |

Being Forgiven

It matters not the life road traveled,
For past is part of our three act play.
Each segment became a stepping stone,
Identifying a spot where we stand today.

But each is special in someone's eyes,
Though in thought we may be unaware.
And whatever thing a past may hold,
Won't motivate this person to not care.

For within each life is faced a decision,
Of two paths, from which we'll choose;
One path leads to a heavenly gain,
The contrary, our soul to Hell, we'll lose.

This pathway will not forever be easy,
But we must journey one, just the same.
If at the end our foundations solid,
It's because of Grace and Jesus name.

We worry too much about what others might think,
instead of what God already knows.

Piece of my Past

walking along the beach today,
i saw you,
you looked at me, then slowly 
walked away,
you had told me that you were 
different from the last,
but you turned out to be 
just a piece of my past,
you really know how to make 
me hurt,
was it love? 'cause im no expert,
i thought it was, at the time,
but now lookin back,
you were never mine.

Second worst Mistake

2 AM you sneak out the window
I want to choke you but it won’t show

Went skinny dipping, with your best friend’s boyfriend
Now the laughs on you in the end

Are you drowning?
Am I laughing?
Is this really…
Actually happening?

Are you choking?
In the water…
I hear you sputter
Glad you’re not my daughter

If I could I’d
Take a snap shot
Of this moment
Couldn’t imagine if I forgot

You look lovely
Better than I’ve ever seen you
As you sink down
I just want to…

If you think I need you think again
I always knew you weren’t a true friend

You lie and steal and cheat
Then you rinse and repeat

If you think I need you think again

You take all that you need
Then you walk away and leave

Not caring who you hurt
Who you shove into the dirt

If you think I need you think again

I watched as you used each and every one of us
You depended and took and we were so stupid to trust

We all took care of you and
Helped bring you through

Through the addiction and tears, 
Helping you get master over your fears

If you think I need you think again

Then the joke was on us, 
We all got busted

You’re a sell out and a lie
Wouldn’t shed a single tear if I had to watch you die

You just walked away free
And went on pretending to be

The victim as you always did, 
And we all believed it

A jealous vicious creature, that's all you really were
Aggressive and abusive, how you tortured her

You taught me to hate, but I taught myself to fight it
You taught me to steal, I taught myself to outride it

You taught me not to love
But instead I grew up

To be the better person, the one you couldn’t be
The one that you hated, the one inside of me

You showed me how to lie and do bad things
I tried to give you love and flight to your wings

You couldn’t handle honesty, so you left us here alone
But after everything I’m glad that you are gone

It’s taken a while to pick up the pieces of everything I once knew
I had to adjust to understand that I could go on living without you

Now I think back to yesterday, 
And I feel glad it ended this way

Because even though you hurt us all, 
Even though we had to fall

I learned how to not become like you, 
And learned how to be a good friend too

I learned how to be cautious but also to trust, 
I learned that not everyone is just…

A box filled with lies and drugs and hate, 
That some people need to be set straight

Some people are sincere, they need a true friend
Some people don’t want to only use you they don’t just pretend

So I’m glad I met you, my second worst mistake
It’s taken a while to see what’s all at stake

Never met a mistake like you, I’m glad it’s over
If I ever see you again, I’d look past your shoulder

Wouldn’t say a word, wouldn’t meet your eyes
I’d just keep on going, Then I’d smile

Because… in the end, right wins over wrong
And I didn’t know that, Until the end of this song

Goodbye

Remembering all the things we used to share
things we used to do together
when we were one
crumbling like buring leaves
glue couldnt put them back together
words he used to speak
the air that filled my lungs
Heart beating faster with every word
the feeling disapeared the night it all went wrong
nothing but guilt and tears filled my eyes
praying that the devil would make me yours
and youll be mine again
nothing more is left to say but the word we all fear
Goodbye

Scarlet Moons and Indian Suns

Written August 29, 2013


She could have had my son
As we'd spell our names as one
On scattered ocean shores
Beneath that Indian sun

I loved my ma
And I loved her well
I loved my pa
And that musty smell

I hope to see them some day soon
I hope to see them smiling too
This Earth they left a bit too soon
Much thanks unto the scarlet moon

Some day well all be joined as one
Under scarlet moons and Indian suns

I love my family
How I miss this feeling
Of constant embrace
Awaiting at my feet

So come and pray for rain
To wash away our pain
Before the winter stains
What autumn left to drain

I hope to see them some day soon
I hope to see them smiling too
This Earth they left a bit too soon
Much thanks unto the scarlet moon

Some day well all be joined as one
Under scarlet moons and Indian suns

Your Presence

Your presence I feel oh so near, it help me to relieve 
some of my fears of all my everyday cares, I feel your
presence eveywhere.  Whenever I walk down the street,
I can feel the patter of your feet.  I can feel you walking
next to me telling tales of what I mean to you and thinking
about all the things we used to do.

Your presence is so close, it's as if I can smell your fragrance
right under my nose.  I am thinking of your smiling face all
next to mines, telling me how you will love me until the
end of time.  Your presence is oh so strong and as I travel
throughout this day it lingers on.  When I decide to stop and
dine, it's as though I feel your hand right next to mines.  

When I sat down to eat, I can see your eyes staring into
mines, and you sitting there sipping on some wine.
Your presence means so much to me and this is the
way I want it to always be, me feeling you and you
feeling me until forever and eternity.

Macabre Eyes

Anger burns through ones soul.
The smoldering hate causes macabre looking eyes.

The sane mind fades as sanity tries,
but the battle within fails to keep peace.

You deceive yourself consuming your own heart while
quenching your thirst with your blood.

You rent and break which should cause you to scream,
but you call out not for your heart has been consumed.

Please hear me old friend and stop the hate.
May there be peace with you until your journey ends.

Realm of Reality

Introduction: Life is a mystery with many ups and downs throughout the journey. The
journey filled with thoughts of tranquility and turmoil. But the perfect sensation is the
time when you get to feel closer to your Almighty, the one who understands you the best,
your closest friend, your hope and light, your solution to every problem, The mystery you
came to life to solve and to believe in.
Even in the happiest and the saddest moments, He is always there when you need Him.




Right now I am, thinking what to write
Holding my pen, it’s almost midnight,
I’m truly out of words, to express my whole life,
It’s so absurd, cut all pain through a knife
And I wish I could feel, Your presence in my soul
I know that You know, what I am going through
And I’m not sure I believe, unless I really feel
But I know when You’re not there, so I pray to feel You near

Now I can see, what this life is about
Now I do know, I’m too lost without,
Diamond in the rough, that’s what I was
But now I’m reborn by the shower of Your bliss
I’d die to satisfy, I’d do everything I can,
No matter how tough, after all I’m a man
I won’t fall apart, You’re always in my heart
I’d swim oceans and more, only to be Your friend

This undying grace of Your creation,
Time and space, more than perfection
You’ve opened my eyes and showed me the truth
You’ve blessed peace to my soul; I know what’s my role
I see two key coins, one black and one white
And all I have to join, the one with your light
Life is as it is, we make it our own
Hard or easy, full or alone

Everything grows, as they all involve
With the rose you put down, to show us what’s love
I wake up early, to see Your beauty,
Throughout the morning sun, I feel complete and done,
I drive all the way and see my problems solved,
By Your love from above, I stand still so firm
Everything I do, everywhere I go,
Every moment I breathe, I remind myself of You…my Almighty.

Goodbye My Brother

I've seen more than my share of death 
I’ve cheated death also
I thought I'd seen it all 
But I was wrong 

I learned from one of the best 
To control and hide my emotions 
That's one of the things I'm good at
But not tonight 

The first person I laid eyes on that night
When I went though those doors was Josh 
It broke my heart even more 
I knew right then it wasn't a dream 
Oh how I wish it was 

I latched hold of him
Not wanting to let him go 
Afraid I'd lose him too 
Even though we're not blood 
Your still my little brother 

How do I say goodbye
I can't I won't 
So I'm saying see you later for now
I will see you again one day

Even if I don't make it into the gates of Heaven 
I will see you when I stand in judgment 
You'll always hold a special place in my heart 
Love you always




Dedicated to the sudden loss of a close Family friend

MY ADMIRATION FOR YOUR BEAUTY

      
They say Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.How true this is.
I believe everyone who sees you sees the beauty in you.
But I see more than just the beauty.
I see you and just you.

Love comes in colours.I see Red,my colour and the colour of love.
Beauty comes in hues,your hue a glowing Ebony Black.
Beauty comes in height,yours is one so much admired.
Beauty comes in shapes,yours,what adorable physique.
Beauty comes in carriage,you've got such a gaity poise.


Beauty comes in Dental formation,you have such a snow-white glittering 
dentition.
Beauty comes in the look of the eyes,yours the Sparckling of a clear bright crystal 
ball.
Beauty comes in the kind of Lips you've got,yours so succulent and so inviting for 
plantation of kisses.
Beautycomes in Strands of hair.Your hair cascading down your shoulders like 
water fall,framing your pretty face.
Beauty comes in your walk,yours the glide of a Queen.

Behold,you are my Queen,my Beauty Queen.
The one I see as the Epitome of Beauty.
My admiration for your love is all of the above and much more than I can put down 
in written words.

poems

poems of love 
poems of hate 
closing doors
 and clicking gates 

Gates of white 
Gates of blue
 all beg for something new
 
something new
  something old
 something saying lets be bold 

i  know you
 and i know something you 
would like to do 

 so take my hand 
and lets leave behind the seas
 and the sand
 
 fly to a new beginning 
leave all these people we watch 
sinning

Journey

After being shattered,
 torn apart inside,
 a hole was carved out of me
 and something in me died.
 
Our dreams, desires and hopes,
 so young and plentiful,
 all too quickly melted away,
 both of us feeling dismal. 

The time that then came after;
 so dark, unhopeful and bleak.
 The Heart could see no light,
 the body soon became weak.
 
A living, moving corpse,
 an empty, lonely shell.
 The Soul would drift, unheard from,
 locked in its gloomy shell.
 
But life is so persistent,
 and always will pull through.
 Subtle, gentle rays of light
 will once again shine true.
 
The pieces of Self are gone,
 and an emptiness remains,
 Yet the dark thoughts drip away,
 the Soul no longer in chains.
 
So Self must be reborn,
 clay in a potter's hands.
 Piece by piece, the hole is filled,
 done so with multiple strands.
 
Recreated little wonder,
 dance with Joy once more.
 Let your dreams regain their wings,
 and see what He has in store.

GOD DOESN'T REPLACE CHOICE WITH FREEDOM

God doesn't replace choice with freedom,
excluding me from that Heavenly kingdom;
if I disobeyed...I'd forever lose this soul to woes!
For my own sake, which one am I going to choose?


I lived youth selfishly...denying that He existed,
and He sought me when it was almost wasted; 
bells rang to atone me with their never-ending song,
the organ played its sweet music to carry me along.


God doesn't replace choice with freedom;
I either immerse myself in the life-giving waters
and allow the forgiveness of all committed sins,
or simply die without ever learning wisdom.

HAPPY

I really love myself,
I'll do bad and good things,
I'll make things easier,
I'd like to face my problems.
I can change my life in an easier way,
Now I'm sitting here like a rocking chair.
I really know, How to make all this.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I can do this all things,
In a different ways.
Go! go! go! go!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Funny person in everyday,
I make many person happy in a day,
I've wanted to have more friends,
Like many people live in our earth.
Everyday is a happy day,
Like everyone do this to their self,
I've wanted to have more friends,
Like many people live in our earth.

What The

Being afraid of me is your cage
Nobody expected my rage

With my actions so unclear
The meanings are not here

I've only to regain again
What is lost now and then

Not to be more unclear
I hope to meet again dear

This I trust must not last
Or we could be a thing of the past

Come away and pull me home
I never really meant to roam

Still your my one true hope in life
Being more than this loving strife 

Being afraid of me is your cage
Nobody could expect my rage


Details | Lyric | |

Eternally Grateful

Sometimes God reserves the good things
For such time that our life is most steady;
You had struggled with what life had brought
Because God knew that you were not ready;

Now you're eternally grateful for those
Who remained when you sought their face.
Though the years of absentia seemed lost
Never once were you from under God's grace.

Sometimes at God's urging you did things
Like seeking out those you'd once known.
Finding that in prayer they were waiting
And that their love for you had just grown,

Now your life is finally what you wanted
A loving husband and others who care;
Now you feel valued and ensconced with love
A love that God has given you to share;

Spritual Gangster

You don’t want to miss this
But don’t be confused this aint Christmas
You’ve gotta get real my brotha and kiss this
I’m a spiritual criminal with lipstick

If you’re lucky you just might make my hit list
Coz I’m a murderer killing *****es ego’s with fake riffs
If you’re a moral criminal and do the minimal you can’t hit this
We must stand together my brother to beat this

Pleasure - pain, generosity - blame, loss - gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 

I’ll mind punch you in the heart and give you a soul diss
Aint no big brotha gonna hold me and frisk this
You’re not lost or all alone coz my arrows fire straight and can’t miss
Things aint changed and love can still fix this

Pleasure pain, Generosity blame, loss gain infamy and greed
It’s not hard don’t get angry and there’s no need to bleed
It’s just like John Lennon said when he said love is all you need
Stand with me my friend and let go of fear if you want to be freed 
Love -love- love is all you need

Fishmongers ball

Fishmongers Ball.

Two cats went out to jump and shout
At the old fishmongers ball
But wouldn’t you know
They had no doe
So they gave old Ned a call.

Old Ned the dog he looked at them
With a great big happy smile
He said to them
‘I'll take you then
Gonna spend the night in style"

Old Ned was kind
So they all dined
On fish and meat so fine
The whole night long was filled with song
They had a grand old time.

Everyone danced with minds enhanced
They danced the whole night through
And in the end
The cats and friends
They said "hey what a do!".

Then when the night
Had turned to light
Old Ned he said to them
I’m off to bet
To rest my head
I’ll see you guys again.

BARBARA

Her name was Barbara
We were in first grade
I was so awestruck
At how tough she played
But there was much more
She had charm and grace
And pigtails that framed
Her incredible face
Boys didn't like girls
Not in first grade
But I was a sailor boy
And she was a mermaid
You can call it puppy love
But I still think of her today
I won her heart and hand
On the dock of a bay
Stayed up the night before
Pulled deep from my heart
All the feelings I felt
That was my poetry start
I watched as she read
My heart was ready to pop
She stood and kissed me
I never wanted to stop
Oh the power of words
When birthed in the soul
Love still amazes today
It has riches untold

Lea

What happened to us? Did it just take one night?
How does a beautiful friendship turn into mistrust and fights?
Everyone was against us. Did our love make us blind?
We seemed to be winning the race, and now we're so far behind.
I love you. I love you! Me and you, It's my life.
If money didn't matter, I would make you my wife.
Nothing makes me happier then to see a smile on your face.
I love your style, your car, your taste, and your place.
It's home to me, baby. You invited me into your world.
My angel, my treasure, my dream, and my girl.
The one I held close at night and hung out with all day.
The one I fought for her rights, the one who took my breath away.
We've had our ups, we've had our downs, and if this you happen to read,
I want you to know that I love you. Lea, it's you that I need!

Nobody Knows

Everyday I wake and look forward
to logging in to our Poetry Soup,
because, I can't believe I found you
hidden among this eclectic group.

Actually, it was you, who
somehow stumbled upon me,
I have never met such a spirit
who was so alive and so free.

We talk nearly every single day
from early morning and late into the night,
your calming thoughts put me at ease
and make everything alright,

......and still nobody knows.

When we first met in the Fall
in late October of last year,
it was just after you had joined
but, I was already here.

My shy persona has changed
so much has happened since then,
only your eyes have seen me blossom
I'm more carefree than I've ever been.

We talk nearly every single day
from early morning and late into the night,
your calming thoughts put me at ease
and make everything alright,

......and still nobody knows.

I know we will always have
endless poetry to share,
you know how to take the words
to places only few would dare.

I hope to never lose you
you're the best friend that I've got,
only you can know my secret
that I think you're really hot.

We talk nearly every single day
from early morning and late into the night,
your calming thoughts put me at ease
and make everything alright,

......and still nobody knows.

...and still nobody knows.

The Crying Joker

#2 To those who have met me Through this journey we call life May you be a family member Longtime friend or loving wife My mission was to bring you happiness And put a big smile on your face To do this brought me joy A feeling you can't replace At times it my have been sillyness That would bring tears to both our eyes To see this would mean fulfillment To every joker that cries So I hope I completed my mission At sometime or someplace To bring you tears of joy Along with a big smile on your face

Unintelligible Communication - who/what/where/when/why/how?

How can you say the things
that make me want to scream?
How can you hear the words
that make me want to cry?

Why does my life
feel like a constant cliche
and why are you
content to care
about a creature who cares
about nothing at all?

i said i had lost my priorities
but i know i just finally
realized what they are:
"wallowing in self-imposed misery"
ranks first
and manipulation
and selfishness
come in a close second and third
if there is much difference
between them at all.

Can you tell
that i'm out of words?
all i can do
is scream and cry
sigh at life's inevitability
about the mess that is me
and i wish sometimes
that i could let go
float on the flow
of my tears and waters
that teem with my screams
swim
and actually get somewhere.

i try to return to the past
but my creative juices
have fled
watered down by time
and repetitive experiences
and this is new
but not so much so 
that there's anything more
to say
that hasn't already
been said.
i've related to you
the over-used lines
i seem to spill at these times
don't be surprised if
i am reduced
to repeating 4 words:
"what do i do?"
'cause that's all it comes down to.

i write because
it feels like something accurate
-- and that still effects deeply and intensely --
might come out
the next time
or the next time
when really
i read over my old poems
and realize
i've exhausted my supplies
of deep, intense effective poems
and all that's left
is just chicken scratch.

i
don't want to
am not able to
write anything more
all i can do
is lay my head
on the naked pillow
and hope that i won't rise
or if i do
i won't be me.

i can write the words
that make me want to cry
i can write the things
that make me want to scream
but how you can say and hear
i'll never know
'cause i've gone
far beyond the realm
where that is
a plausible
possible
option
but here i can retreat to 
and "fire at will
from behind my hideout
of faux-i-don't-care".
and as i write
i realize that that is the one thing
i can say
that is utterly true
because i am
sorry
and there's nothing i can do
to change that.

FOREVER WE ARE ONE

If we don't let go the past
the future will not come so easy,
so many time we go wrong
many time we are right
yet we are not perfect 
need to forgive others
that hurt us,thou heart may remember forever
heart may not want to give chances any more any longer
we need to move on without the past
we maybe taller than a tree yet we cant see the future
it is covered by the cloud
the future is many distance away
hard to believe,hard to see
everyday we try harder
everyday it goes longer
a plant today can be a beautiful flower tomorrow so dont up-root it
forgive and let go the past by-gun is by-gun,
give love a second chance
        !!!!let go the past-let come a new day!!!!!

Sabbath Morning Rap sequence 1

Learn not too late to halt the hate,
Bound to be ground in the dust of disgust
We're pierced and fierce, fulla rings and things
We're blued and tatooed and God is booed.

Crude dudes are misconstrued
with actions vulgar,vile and lewd.
We're found down ground in sound,
totally tatooed in terrible taste,
in a mindless race for the loudest base.

Hate to dis your myth but God exists,
'Tis a truth deduced by the less obtuse,
You understand He did become man
For His love of us all because of the fall.

He suffered and died being crucified,
He pulled His people from the pains of hell
and rose from the dead He's alive and well,
I tell you no lie He's got no rival,
It's right there written in the holy Bible.

He arose to heaven so to send the Spirit
to His brothers and sisters who wished to hear it,
He said I leave you my Love I leave you my all
but you gotta say yes to heed my call.

Don't follow the world that ain't the place,
You want to be with Me when you finish this race,
Orphans you're not  you have been taught,
I will help you find Me if I'm sought.
                  
                       Amen

UNFOLD

The pain of change as it unfolds
Is oft a tale that stays untold
What is seen is a whole creature
not deep holes in the feature
nor concrete soles that makes his feet hurt

It all begins with a soft kiss
He is walking with a false bliss
Only following in paw prints
But the nature of mom's lips
Is to rob him of all innocence

Trapped in warm spindles of fear
A wrapped life form kindles in here
Four years bound to shingles of moss
Time to leave this life of sloths
Break free like that of a moth
and Rise again like Christ on the cross

While We Drink Our Beer

Refrain: We three mates can raise three cheers. Here we are together raising our glasses of beers. Any sins or troubles, let the beers wash them away. We can be sober tomorrow. Let’s get loaded today. As long as we are functioning alive, we have to punch the time clock for nine to five. Our supervisor is such a pain in the rear. We can forget about him while we drink our beer. With my automobile, I am two payments behind. For the repo man, I will be difficult to find. He won’t think of bringing the tow truck here. The car will stay outside while we drink our beer. For thirty years now, I’ve been stuck with my wife. She has been torturing and pestering me for most of my life. If I’m out too late, I know she will come here. We can all wait patiently while we drink our beer.

A Simple Thank You

You,

Have shown me how to live again.

Make all the sadness disappear.

You opened my heart to love,

Opened my mind to see.

Giving me a piece of yourself first.

Teaching me to believe, teaching me to believe.And I want to say thank you 
for being the way you are.

I wish I could write a million songs.

For the music you've made me see...

I want to say thank you for being my friend,

You are beautiful to me.

You’ll never know how much you speak to me I just can’t fathom the beauty that I see Your heart goes out in everything you do Your mind spews rain of music so true I am lost in the light of your unimpeachable words Everything around me, in me, feels so damn absurd I futilely try and fight a battle never won And realize that I am already gone Ooooh I am mesmerized Oh, I can’t be surprised That I am mesmerized You can see it in my eyes Am I blushing? Am I rushing this through? Are you laughing? Oh damn, he knows it’s true I am mesmerized Oh, I can’t be surprised Oh so mesmerized He can see it in my eyes Knowing you’re far from mine You’re words still stop all time Because you’re so damn sublime You’re simply out of this world So just get out of my mind! Oh! I’m mesmerized…. If there was a way inside your mind There still wouldn’t be me to find You’re moving so blasted fast And I just can’t reach the mask Man, it seems so useless, to try and make you see That I want you beyond all reason, knowing it can never be As you thrill the crowd, as you kiss the girl I’ll just stare at your pictures, wishing I was her Ooooh I am mesmerized Oh, I can’t be surprised That I am mesmerized You can see it in my eyes Am I blushing? Am I rushing this through? Are you laughing? Oh damn, he knows it’s true I am mesmerized Oh, I can’t be surprised Oh so mesmerized He can see it in my eyes Knowing you’re far from mine You’re words still stop all time Because you’re so damn sublime You’re simply out of this world So just get out of my mind!

Friends Through It All

This Lyric is dedicated to my best friends in my life, I couldn't make it through life without you!  

All these thoughts in my head
They’re so dangerous
All these thoughts in my mind
Leaving me in the abyss
I’m a prisoner of my head
I hope to God I don’t wind up dead
Lost in the cold of the night
Giving up the fight
I can’t do this on my own

Thank God
I’ve got my brothers up a head of me
And my sisters at my side
They’ve always been there for me
Through the pain they could never see
I’ve known I’ve won
When it’s all said and done
At the end I’ve got my friends
And that’s all I need

This journey’s so cold
Having no one to hold
This night’s so dark
Without love’s spark
We can’t be made
To live life alone 
We gotta be more
Than a sinking stone 

Thank God
I’ve got my brothers up a head of me
And my sisters at my side
They’ve always been there for me
Through the pain they could never see
I’ve known I’ve won
When it’s all said and done
At the end I’ve got my friends
And that’s all I need

I can’t go back to where I began 
Stuck in the sinking sand
I must continue on this road
Carrying such a heavy load
Because I know there’s a light
At the end of it all
No matter how many times I fall
I have received God’s grace
And such a loving embrace
I must learn to 
Live 
Laugh
And Love
At the end of it all

Thank God
I’ve got my brothers up a head of me
And my sisters at my side
They’ve always been there for me
Through the pain they could never see
I’ve known I’ve won
When it’s all said and done
At the end I’ve got my friends
And that’s all I need
	
Live
Laugh
And love

Introvert

I see you standing there
Hiding from the crowd
You say the world's too big
You say the world's too loud
I reach out my hand 
And put yours in mine
To pull you out into 
The whirlwind of life


Life is full of crazy 
There is no life that's plain
Life would just be boring 
If everyone was sane.
You gotta let the beast 
Out of its cage
You gotta be crazy
You gotta be brave


I know you have your own 
World in your head 
Maybe you might like 
The outside world instead
I'm not trying to say 
That I understand 
I want you to know 
I'm reaching out my hand 


Life is full of crazy 
There is no life that's plain
Life would just be boring 
If everyone was sane.
You gotta let the beast 
Out of its cage
You gotta be crazy
you gotta be brave 


I know you find life
Hard to be around 
I can't let you hide 
Six feet underground 
 if you want to try 
To try and take a chance
Step outside your walls
Let go and join the dance


Cuz...


Life is full of crazy 
There is no life that's plain
Life would just be boring 
If everyone was sane.
You gotta let the beast 
Out of its cage
You gotta be crazy
You gotta be brave 


I see you standing there
Hiding from the crowd 
You say the world's too big
You say the world's too loud
Life is full of crazy 
There is no life that's plain
Life would just be boring 
If everyone was sane.

False Witness

A false witness
Seldom goes unpunished,

So never profane
The name of a friend.

Guard your tongue
And choose your words,

Broken friendships

Crush

I yearn for the way 
you look at me
my cheeks, and how
easily they flush
at the very hint
of your smile
I can't help but blush
you soft caress
across my cheek
makes my knees weak
the whole world
hold us in a hush
I wonder if this be
love or lust?

A Memorable Friendship On My First Ship

I write from my heart, not just words, but feelings of what’s inside,
Our hearts are such wonderful places where we can find things to hide
Like the ones that I want to remember, they are like pieces of gold
The warm memories that unfold when I think of the reasons they are there
Reminders of special people who I'll always consider my true friends
Just like you are and always will be my friend for every day to come.
Memories of that first day we met on a beautiful and wonderful ship
Will be with me as reminders of days on this cruise each and every one.  

Caley you and I met on the "Sun Princess" and then we bonded fast
The time I had with you dear friend was great from the first day to last
I'll never forget the kindness you showed that started a friendship with you
You helped to lift my spirits up when I was teary and feeling very blue
I’ll never forget the tears you shed when I sang that day on the ship
I was touched as I saw you sitting there with tears running down your face
This was the biggest compliment that you could have ever paid me for sure.
Day after day I wish that I could have back the life I had more and more.

Life is full of many surprises I have found with challenges all the time
The best surprise I just received was aboard the "Sun Princess" so fine
I met a lady who loves jewellery, as much as I do on board   this ship
She befriended me while we dined in the most lavish place to eat  
From the moment we met we became the best of friends so true 
Starting as we looked at jewellery or Swarovski Crystal too expensive for me
Or was it while we were dining as we sailed together on the ocean blue 
I only know dear Caley it would not be the same if I hadn’t met you.

Untiring, unmoved
I cannot move ahead
Nor can you behind

We stick together

Not know what will come next
I give you a virtual life
You give me a leg
The day I meet my grave
You give some other a leg

I'll Stand By You

To my best friend, JAM… I know you’re tired and your soul is weary; twenty three hours 
Of each day you’re alone and in that cell. But be strong and know that you’re really not alone
If you could only look at it, this way..alone, away from the others, you are safe..away from
Deeper trouble..soon you’ll be going home.  Although my heart is heavy,
 I am sure your cross is far heavier than mine. I tried to find a song that would tell you that 
you are loved and I chose this  Please read these words to this song, 
“I’ll stand By You” by The Pretenders
Written by HYNDE, CHRISSIE/KELLY, TOMSTEINBERG, William E/
They don’t play it often on radio stations anymore, so I’m posting the lyrics instead.


Oh, why you look so sad, the tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now, and don’t be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through, ‘cause I’ve seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you, you don’t know what to do
Nothing you confess could make me love you less.

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you

So if you’re mad, get mad, don’t hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey there, what you got to hide?
I get angry too, well, I’m a lot like you
When you’re standing at the cross roads
And you don’t know which path to choose
Let me come along, ‘cause even if your’re wrong
I’ll stand by you

I’ll stand by you
I’ll stand by you, won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you
Even to your darkest hour, and I’ll never desert you
I’ll stand by you
And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You’re feeling all alone, you’re wandering on your own
I’ll stand by you…………

Memories in a box

     Tucked away and never been seen for half a decade and more, a box that brings to the fore memories galore.
     Been six years you passed away, since then I haven't been able to find in anyone a real friend.
     Everything that reminded me of you I pushed inside a box, mad at you for leaving me behind to grieve your death.
     Recollection of the blissful moments of our friendship made me miserable, how I wish I had a forewarning of your betrayal.
     The tear-soaked pillows and my stifled whimpers have wiped away any bitterness there was, all that remains now is pain and an inexplicable emptiness.
     With shaky fingers I open the cardboard box, peering at me from within is a red little teddy, on it's bib the image of a fox. One of the gifts you gave me each year on my birthday, I sit here clutching this small tiny thing amazed at how without so much as a word from you how six long years have gone away.
     Rummaging through several Archies cards and a booklet of quotes on friendship my gaze lingers a little longer on the lines highlighted by you. I never really bothered to read them then but today my eyes glisten while I do.
     At the bottom is a stack of letters you wrote to me while you were ill, the rosiness of my romantic world had made me so impatient I had not read them full.
     Your passing away shook me up and on my soul left a big dint, but now when I read between the lines I realize you had given me a hint.
     Maybe it was me , who in my love for you refused to believe that even angels die in order to find their peace!
     With the romantic period over, a girl sits squatted on the floor with her agonies, in front of her lies open a box full of memories!

Bring Out the Mexican In Me

Who am I, where am I from
I’m a girl who ancestors are from Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Panama
See me I don’t know the whole enchilada
My zodiac sign has to do with Aqua
I walk up to you and say, “ Hola amigo, como esta”
You reply to me and say,” Muy bien y tu.”
I say, “Bien mucho gracias.”
I can’t really have a conversation in Espanol
Because I only know boquito
Como te llamas, do you know mine
Me llamas est Preciosa
Me gusta el color Amarillo
You can walk up to me and bring out the mexican in me
Bring out the rice and beans
The whole encilada
Bring out the de le manana
I’ll get back to ya
If I saw you in  Puerto Rico I would say
Bueno? Que traes or oye tocayo
I will introduce you to my traditional food
Burritos
Enchiladas
Bolillos
Carne abada
You bring out the Mexican in me

Victorious

Written August 22, 2012


When I can squalor victorious
It's when I'll say
That I'm a ruthless young hooligan
Just for today

Here in the bedroom
Crime pours out in the evergreen
Bombarding on the beauty scene
Oh are you with me?

Charisma kills politically
Now and then it comes for me
Visionaries comfort thee
Coast to coast from sea to sea

Here in the bedroom
Colors flow across the morning sky
So beautiful I want to cry
Oh are you with me?

When I claim it in the name of us
It's when I'll say
That I'm as wild as a blunderbuss
Just for today

Beautiful Inspiration

Beautiful and inspiring is he,
Who sees the world through rose colored glasses.
If only he could see what I see.
His sight is clouded with unfortunate sadness and melancholy
He views the world from a birds eye perspective,
He sees the beauty of the world around him...
Yet true love and honest beauty,
Grounded in reality
He has neglected.
He soars on eagles wings,
Beautiful inspiration is what he brings.
Strong and confident is he,
Yet blinded by loves unsure indemnity.
A broken heart, the gift of his passion
Has left him standing alone...
My beautiful inspiration.

Friendship With You

One day that true friend will come and turn into your best friend forever
And you were a blessing in disguise
Never thinking to find a true friend like you

Some people come and go 
You have gone but the friendship is still here
We are in separate schools but still manage our friendship 
When most people think of their best friend moving,
They thinking of losing that connection
 Since you’ve moved our friendship has grew 
I don’t know where I’d be you without you
Yeah, I know you miss me too

Where Wild Violets Grow

Where Wild Violets Grow

Scribbling these verses,
caressing your bare back,
simple rhymes,
flowing from my fingertips.


Scribbling verses,
sprinkling odes to fragrant promises,
your smile lightens the burdens,
off my heavy heart.


Scribbling verses,
soaked in countless kisses,
the moonlight waltzing on your skin.


Scribbling verses,
feeling you,
your love never ceases to flow,


through the streams of my mind,
to a place of our own,
where wild violets grow

The Perfect Trio

It sings
It cries
It yells.
It loves bow.
Bow loves it. 
I guess they have no choice.
They come as one.
One cannot function without the other.
It gets jealous when Bow is with Rosin.
Rosin laughs.
It yells
It cries
It sings for Bow to come back home.
Back to the case where the famous duo belong.
Though it has trust issues,
Violin could not live without Bow.
Bow could not live without Rosin.
The trio make up a team.
Together, they make beautiful music.

I like your love

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

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

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

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

Heart and Soul

~ Heart & Soul ~

It’s not just about that one person
You can’t imagine your life without
It’s so much more than that

It’s waking up each morning
Knowing you have a family who loves you
It’s a group of friends 
Who care about you 
Not just 
Some made up version of you

It’s that feeling you get when you help someone out
Or when a dream comes true

It can be happy or sad
It can lift you up or break you down
It can break your heart
Or it can heal you
Yet one thing is true

If you have felt it even once
You’ll never want to let it go

It has so many forms 
With so many different ways you can feel it
Even a day to celebrate it 

It is a feeling that 
Is hard to live without 
Those who have never felt it 
They are the ones I feel sorry for

LOVE
A four letter word 
That says so much
Means so much 
Has such an impact on so many lives

It’s so important 
In so many ways
A couple just starting out
Two people spending the rest of their lives together
A family
Friends
A lifelong dream
And so much more
A feeling
Called Love
I prefer to 
Call

Unforgotten

I've captured you from death's snare,
While others were unaware
No more worrying,
You are unforgotten

You are alive
Others deny it 
Well, I know...
You are unforgotten
In my memory
You are unforgotten

Chastisement

She appeared one day seeking a chance,
This chance rested with me to proffer.
I saw potential problems at first glance,
Looking past the skills she might offer.

But God precluded my wrong intention,
Because inside my heart He could see.
An imperfection needing His intervention,
He used this young woman to chastise me.

Within my heart He has ordered her being,
With a charge like none previously known.
God gave me new spiritual eyes for seeing,
Since that day a kindred feeling has grown. 


Details | Lyric | |

Is She The One?

Is she the one my dream come true
The one that makes me whole.
Throughout the end of time
I'd give my heart and soul. 
Is she the one with qualities to endure the test of time.
Her unexpected stare 
sends shivers up my spine.
And gives me butterflies inside
Is she the one I can't decide
That always keeps me satisfied
My mind is left preoccupied
You have ignited every flame
Within my beating heart.
Now far from you I cannot part.
Is she the one my sweetheart
the angel in my life.
For you I'd walk a thousand miles
The toughest ride you've made worthwhile
I've looked beyond your hazel eyes
Your every glimpse, your every smile
In love we've deeply intertwine
Is she the one who will be there
to catch me when I fall.
That picture perfect puzzle 
To you I give my all.
Is she the one 
Well better yet she 's got the hooks on me.
The fear of losing her is deeper than the sea.

Can You Be Mine

She's marking my direction,
It's her that I see,
And there's nothing I can say or do,
She's struting down the street,
With fire in her feet,
And I'm thinking I should make a move,

No steps I heard,
She glides like a bird,
And her eyes sparked a perfect blue,
Her voice blew like the trees,
I fell to my knees,
As she said how do you do,

(chorus): 2x
I said, can you be mine,
Can you be mine,
I said, Can you be mine,
Love me forever and more,

Her eyes opened wide,
As though she was surprised,
She didn't know what to say,
She grabbed a pen and wrote down her number,
Before I asked her for her name,
She said her name was Lisa,
I said so nice to meet ya,
This girl, was playin heard to get,

I said I know you've been hurt in the past,
But you won't be hurt this time,
Her hair was so soft and beautiful,
So I told her not to pay a dime,

(Chorus): 3x

(Bridge)
Talking:
(I love the way you movin ya body, baby)
(I got so excited, baby)
(That's the way, you got me, you got me)

Scars

You can't always inter a scar,
If the affair that induced its being;
Is a clock haunting from afar,
And from its memory you're fleeing.

Soulfire

I fell upon a dreadlocked man, with wood he made, with my heart he ran

For never before have i known of such inspiring thought and tempting touch

So to the forest we made our way, with plans of happy, joyful play

The trees did shelter to a degree, but not enough to protect me

As we sat faces aglow, around the fire his head hung low

For what he said he meant no harm, to save me from his free-spirited charm

You may think that denotes the end, for the woodland two that would depend

But something quite wonderful happened that night, with flickering flames and souls alight

Just like a butterfly held too tight will die, we set it free and watched it fly

It landed thankfully on a tree representing what may be

Colour, beauty, dancing wings, our friendship began cut loose of strings

I found a friend and will always be,  there for him as he is for me

Drifting Mainly

You belong to me mate 	 ( Intro )
And that be that!
Get on board
And grab your hat!

The ship was aghast at its new passenger	( Verse )
Like disdain for the lives that they now left behind,
Newcomers were scarce 
And they never would last
But I held up my chin nice and high.


The bloke who took me screamed	( Pre-chorus )
“Mop up the deck we’ve got things to do!” 
But I said sir, 
I’m just a boy and don’t know what’s to do.

And he said		( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Taking the seas for more than eight moons
We found islands and loot
That was bigger than most.
The taste of sea air 
With its wind in my hair
Took me away to this new life I lead.

After mopping the deck 
He grabbed my hand and screamed
 “Steer this ship boy!”
But I said sir,
I’m just a lad and don’t know where to go.

So the crew yelled	( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shore
Taking what’s mine 
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

Surprising to me 
Was my unshaven face
The captain looked on 
And smiled with grace,
We stopped at a place 
Where the women were loose and didn’t mind
If we took a peak.

He said “Now you’re a man so let’s get on that boat,
We got places to be and some people to rope,
So grab that sword and drop that mop
Cause you’re no longer a boy in my eyes.”

I practiced the duel with the men in the crew
The captain took eye to my devilish pride,
And he took me aside and said 
 “Even in death I’m gonna miss you boy 
But don’t let it strike you 
Or kill your spirits
Cause even time can beat out the Grim.”

Then in the darkness came fire and screams,
Our vessel had stopped after fourteen years,
The crew fought hard and beat most of the men
But now, my Captain was dead.

We took the new ship watching ours sink deep
Saying goodbye to our drowning escape,
The crew turned towards me and asked
“What do we do?” and I smiled,
And they did to.

And we yelled    ( Chorus )
“Drifting mainly
Sailin the shores
Takin what’s mine
And leaving what’s yours
Cause you know, we ain’t dead yet.”

This Person

There was a person I could not visit,
That outside of dreams I craved.
A person that transcended thought,
To whose memory I became enslaved.

Because lapsed time had given me,
Thoughts that bound me hard and fast.
I was left to ponder things about her,
If she were a dead hand of the past.

I recalled the few seed I'd planted,
Praying God's word in her would grow.
That He'd sent another to water this seed,
And if it sprouted, somehow I'd know.

Then one overcast day to my surprise,
Her posting which housed the clincher.
From this brief letter our lost was found,
And launched anew, friendship's adventure.

Summer Air

Sleeping in cars, I’m the last one here
And I don’t like this
I know it’s because how the weather stains my brain. 
We stand ageless
The first time, we had less sense of time and awareness
Where has time gone.
is it still beating the race with my heart again?
Exhaust from cars, mixed with pollen means new beginnings
Dreaming in cars, I know it’s there but I do not understand 
Springtime air, I know it’s there but I’m still not healing

Can I ask for an escort out of this scene?
I have changed my mind
What is wrong with me
As my mind is abroad
My wound has been seared
 I’m done bleeding
No more sleeping in cars
I will come back home
To a happy ending

Friendship

Friendship comes from the heart, with kindness and passion
It is present for both good and bad times
When you ask God for a gift he sends you a friend
The heart is filled with memories when we have friendship

Someone who is present when you accomplish your goals
The one who helps you get up when you fall
It all starts with trust and understanding
When you feel lost help is on the way, friendship is true and never ends

Be a Heart

It’s amazing how a few words
Can damage someone’s heart
It could hurt them from the inside and out
It could tear someone apart

If you’re virtuous and kind everyday
You might end up saving someone’s life someday

[Chorus]

Be a heart be a soul
Be someone you’d be proud to know
Cause you don’t even know
How this could start affecting you
Could you imagine if this was someone
Who was very close to you
Would you ever stand up tall and be a voice
Be a heart

No one in this world is perfect
But we can all try our best
We’ve all have made mistakes in life
But no one seems to understand

Maybe someday later on we’ll realize
We’re all beautiful in God’s loving eyes

[Chorus;]

Be a heart be a soul
Be someone you’d be proud to know
Cause you don’t even know
How this could start affecting you
Could you imagine if this was someone
Who was very close to you
Would you ever stand up tall and be a voice
Be a heart

Stand up tall for those who are hurting
Be a voice for the hearts that are burning
Stand up tall and be a voice
Stand up tall and be a voice

[Chorus:]

Be a heart be a soul
Be someone you’d be proud to know
Cause you don’t even know
How this could start affecting you
Could you imagine if this was someone
Who was very close to you
Would you ever stand up tall and be a voice

Would you ever hear our cries and make some noise
There are times we feel we have no other choice

Be a heart
Be a start
Be a heart
Be a part
Be a heart

Kevin- A Nerd from school, intersted in pot
Kat- Training psychic, paiges best friend, dating kevin

Prom Night- 2011

Sitting in the car positioning themselves
into a compfy spot
Matt sits in the driving seat
Paige in the passenger seat
Kat and Kevin in the back seat
Kat laying on Kevins shoulder
All of them latch there seat belts
Driving unto the road to go to after prom
Paige sees someone
Someone no oe else can see but her
Sitting right beside her is her (demon but almost human ghost) friend
He whispers "i can try to keep you save from everything, but i cant make a promise)
She looks down at Matts foot
Holding unto the break peddal is one of Matts demons
The demon breaks the pedal and has one hand into the engine of the car
A car coming up behind them
Trying to pass them
Matt decides to make it difficult for them to pass
As he does he tries to hit the breaks
And they didnt work
They drive into the ditch 
Trying not to hit the other car infront of them
Flipping a few times as they land with all the tires on the ground and the 
Top of the car towards the sky
Paige lays on the windsheild her head cut by the glass
She looks  at her self
She sees her body laying there looking up at Matt as he smirks to her
His eyes turn black and he smirks again
Paiges ghost friend opens the door and pushes her out
Far from the car
She now lays close to the road
She watches the car as it rolls off the hill
Flipping it again, also looking down at her lifeless body
She sees Matts demon again

The Night After

Paige was rushed to the hospital
Matt, Kevin and Kat left with only bruises and a few cuts
Paiges brain was internally bleeding
She stands in the hospital 
Outside of her body
Standing looking at her ghost friend
He ssays to her "as much as i want you to be here with me, your family needs you in your other life"
She wakes up a few hours later, in her body, and getting better

The Tragedy of Elise

We are Elise.
We are uncountable.
With no way to break open our locks
They designed sweet melodies as keys
And conquered countries in our name.

We are the loved and easily forgotten.
They came to us with bouquets of rose,
Like the Queens, we sat cold yet joyous
As they placed sweet nothings by our feet
And we were heartbroken when they abandoned us.

We are the noontime shadows.
The sun is so bright and the darkness so great
Hurricanes rage inside and tear us apart
But we dare not reveal the burdens we carry
For we are loved by them, in all their carelessness.

We are Elise.
Broken open and tossed aside.
Loved purely then left behind.
Unhappy but satisfied.
We are Elise, the greatest puppet ever made.

Letter To A Friend

Dear friend
Where do I begin? 
I got so much on my mind
Sometimes I wonder where we stand
But my emotions is bout to explode
Like a volcano when its eruption
And your name came in mind
When it came to reach out for a hand
I’m overseas fighting
With mortars flying over my head
Bullets traveling toward my frame
Fighting for something I don’t understand
I’m crying cause I need help
And here I don’t have a friend
Today I am alive
But tomorrow I might be dead
And man with this
Always on my mind
Got me scared for the fact
I don’t know if I’m running out of time
Usually I call you
But I have to write this on a line
Cause my voice is so shaky
I can’t say a word but jus cry
To me you’re like a brother
You are always by my side
That’s why I’m writing you
Even though I feel shy
You always seen me tough
But never seen my sad side
I hate that I feel like this
Even though I don’t know why
And I think you are the only person
That can really calm me down
Even though in my eyes
I see death all around
Blood on the sand
Body parts on the ground 
Sometimes I think to myself
How do I stay alive living with a frown? 
But knowing you’re here for me
Is enough to hold me down
Jus writing this to you
Is making me feel better right now
One day we’ll sit down and talk
And on my face you’ll put a smile
But I hope that day comes
Before I’m the next dead person found

ESPECIALLY TODAY

You don't have to say, "I love you"
For mom and dad to know you do 
It's felt in the warmth of your touch 
That they are cared for so much 
And most especially today!

You are there when they are weak 
A voice when they can't speak 
You are a hand that lightens loads 
A comfort when the storm billows 
You are eyes to help them see 
All the things that need to be 
Their feet when they can't walk 
An ear when they need to talk

No, You don't have to say, "I love you" 
For mom and dad to know you do 
It's felt in the warmth of your touch 
That they are cared for so much 
And most especially today!

You are a light on their dark days 
Friend and daughter in so many ways 
You have Dehaan run by the store 
To bring groceries and so much more 
Give time when there's little to spare 
A thousand ways you show you care 
"Jamie" sayings that make them smile 
Your always going the second mile

No, You don't have to say, "I love you" 
For mom and dad to know you do 
It's felt in the warmth of your touch 
That they are cared for so much 
And most especially today!
Yeah, you don't have to say, "I love you" 
But they are so glad that you do! 
And most especially today!

The Audacity of Love

lt can greet you as an equal
compliment you like a friend,

can produce a new beginning
or, assault you with an end.

lt can trick you into thinking
that what you believe in now, is true;

then, make you feel like an idiot
as lonliness swallows you.

Life wouldn't be much without it
t'wouldn't even be grace from above;

we all experience it in many forms
that's the audacity of love.

It can also bring you comfort
and can ease your worried mind,

soothe you when you're hurting
and teach you to be color blind;


soften even the hardest of hearts
and give the spirit of a dove,

kill hatred with a knowing glance
that's the audacity of love.

All About Her

I dont know much about her
but I heard she wasnt that talkative
She didnt like being alive
She was numb to all the pain she had to go through

I heard she didnt like anything that was green
She ate roman noodles everynight for supper
She always wore flannels and bellbottoms
Sometimes i seen her wear dresses and fancy tops
But lately shes been wearing band shirts

She wears converse shoes and uses an army bag for school
I know that she dosent like to communicate through talking... only through her peoms
or sometimes even her songs.

I see her drawing and painting all the time
She draws famous people
She would like to be famous and not so unknown
When she tries to speak to anyone they always walk away and leave her alone

When she gets home she goes upstairs to play her bass guitar
She hates chocolate cake but loves chocolate
Her family left her behind because she cant forget her past

Sometimes when shes alone she contemplates the meaning behind her life
Her favorite color is gray because her life is black and white
Everything she says is false according to the world

She is not so innocent
I understand that she dreams about the perfect life
When she opens her eyes they are pitch black

She is someone that is fake
She acts nothing like she should
She is very grungy and unclean

She knows of no safety
and of no time
Her life is smashed into pieces by the giant sun

She will always be a ghost
She knows of no god
She crawls around in the world of death
She remains forgotten

Both are nice

Both are nice
Both are cool
They go fast
Not that rule
No control!
What should say?
Oh Abdul!

Any Time You Need a Friend

If you have a need to call me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need to talk to someone
Who has been there once before
Don’t worry about imposing
If you have a text message you want to send
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

If you have a need to hug me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need to simply be held tight
When you feel like falling to the floor
Don’t worry about mixed messages
You’re afraid that it might send
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

If you have a need to kiss me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need to feel good inside
As verification that you’re adored
Don’t worry about teasing me
If the kiss is where you know it must end
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

If you have a need to sleep with me
I won’t read into it any more
Than the need for a night of passion
When there’s no lover for you to score
Don’t worry about leading me on
And feeling like you now have to pretend
I want to be there to help you out
Any time you need a friend

But, if you want me to read much more
In these actions that you take
If you wonder why I don’t pick up on the clues
And worry that my friendship is just a fake
Simply tell me you want me to be
Much more than just your friend
And I’ll be glad to be much more for you
Never to wear these restraints again

hourglass

[A tribute I wrote/rapped after I graduated high school]

i took a bittersweet look into the past
flipping it and watching each grain fall back down that hourglass
wish this hour could last, but what's a little sand?
just a piece of dust falling through the cracks in my hand
 
but matrimony bonds memories with eternity
and the passion i had for my comrades still burns in me
but it's my turn to fade out, like the first tags i put up on walls
bearing witness to styles getting played out
 
i spent three years in this one spot just to be forgot?
along with chemistry study sheets, just shut and locked
in that box that was like a home away from home
where an apparent wealth of knowledge was bound to be grown...
 
with closed eyes, lids like mirrors envision my soul, my mind
so divine was each one of you that walked into my life
i got love for you even if we might
not talk anymore, you inspired me to explore
 
so i guess this one's for you
cuz i met a lot of false characters, but y'all stayed true
and that's more than a guy could ask for, honestly
respect given from me only comes modestly
 
because respectable people are somewhat of a novelty
in this life, travelling throught it like the odyssey
i'm just a nomad with a notepad, a quote "grad"
an alum from some fantasty in the midst of an era so sad 
 
but to friends who still have dreams, quench your thirst to succeed
never let laymen corrupt that seed 
let it blossom with the efforvescence
i know it takes effort but isnt that the essence?
 
gotta give blessings to brothers who imparted the wisdom
and found the courage to release the truth from within them
i cherish your thoughts, and with them i'm never lost
keep your words locked and that's something i'll never cross

if this sounds pretentious, i'm sorry dude
but i was told that a faithful heart makes wishes come true
so i feel a last little push from me couldn't hurt
here you go my friends, and i truly hope it works

until we meet again, it's really been a blast
always remember the times we had, hourglass.

Sir Teddy

Inching from the cradled arms, 
Careful not to wake the boy, 
The knight begins his watch
His sword and shield deployed. 

The defender of dreams, 
 And protector of the mind.
He shall show no mercy
For nightmares he may find. 

The battlefield in darkness, 
He waits at the gates of Hell,
For any beast emerge, 
Will hear the ringing knell. 

But morning shows its face,
And the gates below are closed.
The boy arises safe
With his teddy bear to hold.

Being 73

My earth defined days are counting fast,
So if one, by chance, let friendship waste;
For sure, the memories we have will last,
Because past won't change or be erased.

Even though in thought we have retraced,
We'll be viewed as remnants of our past.
Because past and present are interlaced,
And it's by our doings that our die is cast.

Let Me Be There With You

Let Me be there with you
Let Me hold your hand
For I can help you through to the promised land

Let Me be there with you
Let Me be your Guiding Light
For I can take away the hurt, the pain, and the fright

Let Me be there with you
Let Me be your sword and shield
For I can fight all your battles, if to Me you would yield

Let Me be there with you
Le Me be your Everything
For I, God, died for you
But now I live again - To only be there with you
Be there for you
To save you
From dangers none could tell
Death, Destruction
An Eternity in Hell

Save you so that you
Would enjoy an eternity in Heaven
In Harmony with Me

If only you'd let Me be there with you
Accept Me
I'll Accept you
Take you in as you are
If you'd let Me be there with you

To Infinity and Beyond

Astronomy is asinine,
the solar system useless,
and the sun completely irrelevant.
As far as I'm concerned,
the world revolves 
around YOU.
Believe me when I say
my thoughts of you 
are more abundant
than the stars in heaven
and my love for you
is as infinite
as the universe.

I Needed You To Stay

(chorus)

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

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

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

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

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

Starting Again, Hand in Hand

Sometimes I wonder
What the hell I’m doing here
Sometimes I ask myself
Will I ever endure
This pain
 
I don’t see any hope in me
I am so broken
I can’t even fight for what I believe 
They all expect me to be strong
What if they’re all wrong 

We all 
Have a story to tell
We all
Have been through our own hell
It’s time that we join hand in hand
So we can make it to the promised land 

I have failed so many times
I’ve believed my own lies
Inside I know I’m not good enough
Inside I feel like giving up
I tried to be like them
But I just fail again and again 

I’ve been thrown away
I’ve lost the light of day
I still cry at night
From losing the fight 
In the end
Will anyone remember
Who I am 

We all 
Have a story to tell
We all
Have been through our own hell
It’s time that we join hand in hand
So we can make it to the promised land

It’s time that we forget the past
Hold on to a love that will last
This life will take so much from you
It’ll make you forget the truth 
We need to be the light in the dark
Flames will start with a spark 
No matter where you’ve been
We can be born again
Let’s hold on to the light
Together we’ll make it through the fight

We all 
Have a story to tell
We all
Have been through our own hell
It’s time that we join hand in hand
So we can make it to the promised land

LIFE

Two hearts beat, now beating faster; beating until they're one 
Two souls breathe, now breathing deeper; breathing until they're done 
Two lovers see forever, and forever is where they run 
One child comes home tomorrow for life has just begun 

Even when the rainbow's glowing, the skies can seem so gray 
Even when the wind's not blowing, the tides can turn your way 
And when the water's raging, beneath skies that seem so blue 
It's just your body aging, and it has nothing to do with you 

So now when our God comes calling, I'll hold your hand and stroke your hair 
Yes, as snowflakes start falling, I will look for you everywhere 
And Mother, as you start flying, remember as you rise above 
Marlene, you are not dying, but finding everlasting love 

One child goes home tomorrow to embrace the Father and the Son 
One child who knows no sorrow, for life has just begun

You Just Amaze Me

This is a song that I wrote subconsciously while I was in my TA class.



Wonderin' what you're gonna do,
I'm always worrying 'bout you.
I'm not really for sure why,
I think you're really special though.

You caught my eye,
When you walked by.
When you were teasing me,
I thought I was gonna die;
Die from the laughter you were giving me.

You were pulling pranks and that made me see,
That you're full of amazing things.
Surprises, wonder, and excitement, too;
It's another reason of why I love you.

Wondering what I'm gonna do,
Thinking on how I'm gonna tell you,
That you're the loveliest person that I know.
But how to tell you, though?

You caught my attention
When you were trying to give me a lesson.
A lesson on Love,
And how you compared it to chocolate and a dove.

It's pure like the whiteness,
And sweet like the chocolate;
And ever so lovely is your touch,
I don't know how you do it.

How can you be
So beautiful and sweet,
With out even knowing it?
You just amaze me.

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

Love it

I love it when you're kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs
Passion slowly increasing
breathing deeper
Gaining momentum for the moment 
that draws nearer
Now you're whisperin in my ear
Temperature's rising
moaning, grinding
my body to the rhythm of each 
breath
Enjoying kisses with your tongue on 
my neck
While creating secrets between us 
that manifest
into beautiful stories of lust and 
fantasy
Unafraid to confess 
Rivers flow
The scent of the pheremones 
The beat that the song's on
Tuned in to your passion 
I’m feeling it’s time to make this happen
Finally releasing fear and stress
through pure emotion and love 
Freedom from hurt and distress
I love it when you’re kissing me
I love it when your hands touch my thighs...

Why

God has put people in my path for a reason,
And I try to take advantage of the time I'm given.
Sometimes it's forever, sometimes a short season,
But I inhale the moments as though I'm driven.

For I acknowledge that time is the enemy of man,
So allow the love declared always be displayed.
For time can whisper one away in less that a span,
Then one will remain with the memories they've made

Warm and Lost

Warm and lost.
Oceans of selfish freedom.
See you, see me, 
longing for a bliss filled warm embrace.
I feel you as I float by.
Calm, safe, alone and free.
Are you my Island?
Letting go.
I move in to your flow,
a salty surge, a rush, a wave.
I wave, a smile.
I fall.
Love.
Be so brave.
Lovers soul is found.
Love is lost.
I crave, I crave that smile,
the wave that melts.
I swim. Angels and Gods guide a rebels mile.
Colourless sight, colourful night, into your arms I melt,
engulfed by pure white light.

Have A Letter Instead

Dear You,

When things get rough I always think of you. The ways you calm me are too many to list and the ways I miss you are too obvious to dismiss. You are always present in my thoughts like you are suppose to be with me even when I don’t want you with me. You, you have a way with words and I love the way they ease between my ears erasing my fears and finding an effortless path to my heart. You never stop amazing me. I wonder sometimes what would I do if I lost you. Devastation. Humiliation. Deprivation. Reckless Endangerment. I am finally settling on the thought that I may need you here. 
The first time we met I thought you were the most beautiful thing I had ever been allowed to see. I could barely focus as you took me completely by storm, you made my coldest places warm and for that I thank you daily. I remember looking you over trying not to make my stare obvious. Your skin was perfect, like it had been custom blended only for you, your voice tone was almost too low but I challenged myself to not miss a word, and I didn’t. The thing I noticed, that I love the most about you was the way you took extreme care with me, like from our first initial touch you somehow instinctively knew to go slow, move slower and announce each entry. I tried not to love you that day, but I walked away haven already made a copy of the key that unlocks my heart…and I gave you the original to make sure it would work. Now I wait for you to use it...and now I question sometimes if I should change the locks. Except when I see you, I only want to remove them for you so you only need to walk in, but I must watch you make that move on your own.
Sincerely,
Just love Me

Lonely Soul

Are you just the same as me?
Do you hate the skin you're in?
Does your soul not belong to your mind?
Do you fear getting left behind?

Are you just the same as me?
Are you coy and are you meek?
Do you hide behind a facade
When things are really getting bad?

Close your eyes and you will see
You are just the same as me
Me and you are one of a kind
With tattered souls and tattered minds

Lonely soul, where are you from?
Who are you? Where do you belong?
Can you get through this alone?
Will you find a better home?

away with the sun

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

Stay

She said baby I have to go,
I said girl you don't need to go,
Because baby I want you to stay,
'Til the sun rise,
'Til the end of the night,

And I'm fallin in love with you,
Which is somethin I never thought I would do,
But, I did today,
So girl, Why don't you stay,

Chorus:2x
Why don't you stay, 4x
'Til the sun rise,
'Til the end of the night,

She said baby I have to leave,
I said girl I don't want you to leave,
My darling please stay with me,
'Til the night end,
Then come back again,

Because baby we have a chance,
For us to have a great romance,
So, girl take my hand and dance,
You don't have to go,
Baby don't go,

'Til the sun rise,
'Til the end of the night,

By My Side

When you look up in the sky
And see the brightest star
Remember I am by your side
No matter where you are
You came into my life
You were an Angel sent to me
This empty world of mine
Was now a wonderful place to be
You filled my heart and soul with love
It’s with me everywhere
Whenever I reach out for you
I know you’re always there
I know our love will last always
Forever and a day
For I will need you with me
Till the stars all burn away..

I'm All That's Keeping You Alive

Another a cappella song my friend and I made a long time ago...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wish I can save you
But I can't even save myself
You beg me for mercy but mercy's empty inside
I'm Stronger Again
And you're giving in
To all of this pain that I am inflicting upon you
I am...

The whispers in the night
The heart that's pounding in your head
The darkness over light
The monster underneath your bed
The death that waits for you
Lingering behind every door
I'm that voice deep inside
I'm all that's keeping you alive

I wish I can spare you
Your voice faded slowly, now you can't breathe 
You beg me for mercy 
But darling I am empty
The life's dying out
And you're crying out 
To stop all this pain that I am inflicting upon you
I am...

The whispers in the night
The heart that's pounding in your head
The darkness over light
The monster underneath your bed
The death that waits for you
Lingering behind every door
I'm that voice deep inside
I'm all that's keeping you alive

Please remember:
I Still Love You
This isn't me but
Someone else...

The whispers in the night
The heart that's pounding in your head
The darkness over light
The monster underneath your bed

The one who's there for you
The one who catches all your tears
I'm that voice deep inside
I'm all that's keeping you alive

My Family and Me

It's amazing how quick things can change.
First your running with the kings, and then you're knocked out of range.
It's strange. I used to worry and stress over friends.
Now I've grown to be a man. Maybe know a few of them.
All that time I could of studied. Did better in school.
Got a job and made it big. Maybe now I'd be cool.
Who's the fool? Now who's the bull? I know that's not me on the top.
Life is always making turns weather you like it or not.
The past will always be the past. My glory days may seem gone.
But, now its time to start a new.The stories keep coming on.
I've got a new girl. She means the world to me.
She keeps me warm at night, my best friend, my new dream.
Since my car accident, still got a limp on one side.
Still working with my memory, still need a friend who can drive.
I love to Karaoke. I get noticed in bars.
My mom's always there to catch me. Tom's working with my mom's cars.
My sister's in the Army, my niece is a big part of my life,
Friend Zach keeps assholes off me, and God is my wife.
AJ's always there to help, Brian is my LOST bud,
Mary's out of school, Lil cousin, Hunter's a stud.
Grandpa still is my idol, JT is still the music man .
The Adam's still can party. Chris, living good on the sand.
I may only use one hand, but I plan to be the best.
At all I do in life, cause there's not that much time left.
The blood test that I took says Landon is mine.
I hope this all works out fine in time and help to make my son's life shine.
JC who's down in Georiga, my heart is screaming for you.
I hope that you recover well. It can't be worse then what I went through.
Uncle Jimmy where you at? Where's Matt, Corie, and Pete?
I know you all are doing good. Serviolo's are a hard team to beat.
How's the rest of the family? I love and miss you all!
I hope you all are standing tall and I pray we never fall.
These last words that I say, I say only to you.
We've got the best family in the world and you know I LOVE YOU!

I Have You

If leaves should fall from the evergreens
If time just stopped, and the sun rose dark and blue.
If all life ended, and the earth stopped turnin 'round
Even facing the end I'll still have you.

When I get married on that warm summers day,
When my baby is born, sometime next May.
Even if it's not, you that I married.
Even if you're not, my baby's daddy,
Well, I'll live gladly. I still have you

When bad times come, and all seems lost
When I'm flying high, my wings spread wide.
When I'm lost and/or in danger,
When I'm smiling or in anger,
It doesn't matter. You're there to help me through.
You're always there to see me through.

If there comes a day,
Where you walk away.
Should there come a time where I am left behind.
Even though you would have gone, don't expect a change.
I'll be waiting for the day when you come back my way.

If you walk up to me, and call me baby.
If you come up to me, and say we're besties.
If you come up to me, and dont say anything.
I'll take your hand, and we'll get through.

If ever there comes a time
When life's too much, there's no peace of mind.
When you're cold and feel alone,
When you dont know what it is to be home.
Dont be afraid, know your hands in mine.
Dont be afraid, you have me by your side

Even if leaves fall, from the evergreens.
If you walk away, never to be seen.
Even if you're not, the one I marry,
Just know I'm happy, that I have you.
And dont forget, you have me too.

We'll have each other, to help get through.

Space Sharing


More substantial than any fleshly thing,
Is this mental thing of which I speak.
'Tis joyous moments, these thoughts bring,
Oft times, an isolated thought, might pique.

It is always more than a mutual embrace,
But rather the allowing of another's notions;
During times when meetings aren't face to face,
Or confronted and weakened by emotions.

From my shared space I've let some stray,
And forthwith wrestled with pronounced cost;
But return came on a more preferable day,
Even whilst missing, my mind they crossed.


If in your space there exists a void
Occupied by someone's memory,
Hope Exists!

I'm Sleeping Outside

I've tried to tamper with such precious time
Looked forward and back with open eyes
I wonder about the day I'll die
Will there be rain or shine?
Maybe both, maybe none
As I speak another life has begun
Wish them luck as they carry on
Bewildered within these starry nights
I thought of time when I have lied
Oh such precious time
It flies
(im sleeping outside)
Signs and dreams lead me to believe
That somehow, some way
I'll be something great
Do I choose to be nieve?
They'll never know
Do I choose to be so weak?
It'll never show
(I'll be sleeping outside)
Love is such a clishey it seems
Something I could only see
Her eyes drew us in like summer heat 
Cupids arrows were made of clay
Oh yes I've longed for this day
I knew I wasnt lying anymore
(I always sleep outside
where the weather is nice
I can feel everything for what it's worth
dont give me signs or written lines
give me your solid words)

Better Than Grace

how can we pretend that everything is okay
when the world is soon to turn to grey
I've took this life and its treasures in vane
when you'd easily trade with me any day

you're amazing better than grace
so amazing just can't turn the page
amazing can't find the strength
to gaze at your face and not look away
look what we've done, coming undone
slowly fading away, so amazing
better than grace

you say they gave you less than six months
never thought it could hurt this much
I'd give anything just to save you
oh what can i do, just say because

you're amazing better than grace
so amazing just can't turn the page
amazing can't find the strength
to gaze at your face and not look away
look what we've done, coming undone
slowly fading away, so amazing
better than grace

with every breath we take, just another test today
don't walk away before it's too late
we should all be ashamed of ourselves because

he's amazing better than grace
so amazing just can't turn the page
amazing can't find the strength
to gaze at your face and not look away
look what we've done, coming undone
slowly fading away, so amazing
better than grace

Children, the Elderly and Bugs

A beautiful friend of mine said to me,
"Children, the elderly, bugs
And the most unwanted 
Are the people I attract."

I told her
That the most unwanted
wants the most wanted.
Bugs are attracted to light,
And the elderly seek 
A fountain of youth.
Children look up to those
Who are big in heart,
And even the beautiful
Want to be complimented 
With more beauty.
So, this was her appeal
Which would attract 
The whole world to her,
Even the most wanted.

Tom's Angels

Not all guardian angels have wings
To hover in a stone washed sky.
Sometimes they suddenly enter your life
And may cause you to question why?

Sometimes it may have been a stranger
Whom God thought you needed to know.
Just a seed that you'd be undeserving of
From which friendship and love will grow.

Angels that will induce Godly thoughts
And wrest from your soul, your best.
Perhaps this is just why God sends them
To assist you through another life test.

Wyld Wood

I just wrote this about my friend
Who just changed his name on my social site
to Wyld Wood.




When I'm discussed and I feelin' down

I just hit the bricks and leave this town

And head for Wyld wood

Where's Wyld wood

When I'm bored, with nothin' to do

I just take a hike and I head for you 

Mr Wyld Wood

Mr Wyld Wood

Cause there is nothun' better in this whole life

Then drinkin' and jokin' all through the night

With Mr Wyld Wood

Yes, Wyld Wood

Wyld wood

Yes, Wyld Wood

PS I Love You

Jan and Darren joined the poetry soup site
Worked on our own poems in our own right
Started to collaborate on works together
Hope this happy union lasts forever and ever

When we joined soup they put out the 'welcome mat'
Lovely comments from PD, Anne Lise and also SKAT
Encouraging new writers is their wonderful gift
Joining poetry soup gives our hearts a lift
 
Being on the site we have found a lot of fun
In our poems together I’ve just become a mum
Darren is a perfect ‘husband’ and is a doting dad
He always makes me smile but his jokes are often bad
 
Friendship has blossomed, we've shared laughter and tears
Talked of what the future may hold and our worries and fears 
We've discussed our youth and the things we did back then
So little we would change if we could live our lives again 

Jan is very happily married, her lovely son is grown 
Darren is deliriously happy building a life of his own 
The beauty of soup is the welcome they give 
Encouraging friendships that last as long as we live.

When we joined soup they put out the welcome mat
Lovely comments from PD, Anne Lise and SKAT
Encouraging new writers is their wonderful gift 
Joining poetry soup has given our hearts a lift

Writing with others adds a new and rare poem quality 
My collaboration with Jan means the whole world to me
We have intuition, though that may sound absurd 
Sometimes I know what she'll say before she's written a word .

We have our page on which we write but love writing as a team 
Creating something that might make us giggle or share a sweet dream
You'll find us on Jadazzle out there hoping to make friends  
Writing poems we hope you find easy to comprehend .

When we joined soup they put out the welcome mat
Lovely comments from PD, Anne Lise and SKAT
Encouraging new writers is their wonderful gift 
Joining poetry soup has given our hearts a lift

The Deadly Dart

Wherever I go through out my whole life,
I end up struggling with lots of strife.
Thinking that my life is a total waste,
Wanting it to be over in a haste.

I can feel the pain inside my own heart,
Like someone through at my a deadly dart.
The wound is easing deeper and deeper,
Will the pain ever stop getting bigger?

Feeling emo is never a good thing,
Cutting your arm makes a really bad sting.
Blood is dripping from my arms and my heart,
Failing to dodge the largest deadly dart.

Drowning in all the lies and self pity,
I live each day but always feel sh*tty.
I have lots of thoughts about suicide,
But then I think about those who have died.

Those who have died not just from suicide,
But also those who are really nice guys.
...
...
...
...This "poem" was actually suppose to be a couplet (on any thing you want) for my english 
class but i made this kind bcuz i was feeling emo that day...and also after i was done i read it 
over and it almost sound like a rap song which, i guess, is kinda funny and cool.........

You Can't Yank My Chain

I don't lease space within my head,
To allow an opinion to lay and fester;
I'll not permit others to cause me dread,
Or my deepest thoughts to sequester;

I value friendships if their refined,
And convey to me no pre-conditions.
Don't come to me with change in mind,
Daring to take, or change, inhibitions.

You'll find I won't be a friend so kind,
If inflicting on me any unwanted pain;
It won't merit the effort you'll find,
For I won't allow you to yank my chain.

when too much is enough

Off the back beat of a bad decision
Autumn seeks me but summer’s her season
And if your heart don’t speak
Then you’re too weak on your feet

Back to base I ran
Like a wild horse this evening
Everything happens for a reason
Take it all in but the sun can be deceiving

I made it out but I may be leaving 
Wide awake I held the world as she was sleeping
A scar itself is a heal
But on the inside of doubt we’re still bleeding

I lost my way trying to do what I can everyday
Suffered ship wrecks in a brethrens chase
Sadder days have taken place 
As I rested eyes on a heavenly face

Back on my feet and my journey knows no sleep 
Sandals strapped on but on and on travels this bleeding
Head first I lurched from the beaches 
After my chin she reached to beseech me 

On the back seat of a bad decision
If I told you I’ve changed would you believe me 
Autumn seeks me but summer’s her season
And if your heart don’t speak 
Then you’re too weak on your feet 

When too much isn’t enough
When daylight fades 
And you’re suddenly struck
What happens when too much isn’t enough
I made it out alive but it’s hard to look up

Thank You very much

Thank You very much for these happy days.

Thank You very much for my faithful friends.

Thank You very much for the things I have.

Thank You very much I am always glad.

Thank You very much for the rising Sun,

Thank You very much for the brooks that run,

Thank You very much for the Universe,

Thank You very much for this sudden verse.

Thank You very much for Your instant help.

Thank You very much for I’ve ever felt.

Thank You very much for You’re so close.

Thank You for Your Love the most.

Thank You very much for the Endless Joy.

Thank You for the time I spend and enjoy.

Thank You very much for my Perfect Life.

Thank You very much for I Am Alive.

A Dog and the Black Umbrella

On a rainy day, I decided to read in the hotel’s lobby
There, I found no one, but I heard deep breathes
I thought it was my imagination, so I sat on a cozy red chair as I began reading "War and 
Peace"
But, the deep breathes did not stop, instead, it turned into heart breaking sobs
I looked around to see if there is someone sitting in the hotel's lobby with me...
But, there was nothing except for the drop drips across the window
Slowly, I stood up and walked towards the sound's source
Thus, my feet led me towards the hotel's main entrance
And there, I saw a dog sitting beside a black open umbrella...
I saw something dripping from the dog's face, but I was afraid to go closer to see if he is 
okay
Gently, I crept, gently, I sat beside the dog...
I looked at him to see him sobbing, yet looking at something I couldn't see
Then, he lay on the ground next to me, as he tried to wipe his tears with my jeans
I caressed his head as I tried to help
I waited for a while as I watched the drip drop
..
.
The sun began to shine on the borders of the land
And the dog stopped sobbing for a while
He stood up and looked at me; trying to ask me to follow him
As I was standing up, he held the umbrella and gave it to me
He gently barked to tell me to put above our hands
And so, we ventured into the rainy day's display as the dog led the way
Five minutes walk was all it took, for we stopped in front of a hospital
Once more, the dog barked as he looked at the black umbrella in my hands
I lowered it to him to see what he wants
It was then that I understood the dog's sobs, for it was a devotion to his friendly owner
On the black umbrella was a small tag that read the owner's name; "Sam Mathews"
I went into the hospital to ask for him and the nurse led me to his room
There, beneath the white sheets, lay an old man with a smile on his face
When the dog saw him, he ran to hug the old man as he sobbed once more

I left the room, thinking of the old man's brief story of what had happened;
"On a rainy day, I wanted to take my dog for a walk; suddenly I felt pain in my heart as I 
blacked out
 Then, I opened my eyes to find myself lying in this bed with a nurse beside me
 I asked for my dog, but he was nowhere near
 I had this black umbrella in my hand, but it must have fallen, and my dog must have stayed 
beside it waiting   for me to come..."
That dog is a loyal friend, for he waited, without food and water
For his nearest moment to see his friend...

Pushing People

The days are blending
It's like I'm living a dream
The sun is shining
But not a single bird screams
The nights are longer
It's like they're part of my day
A little darker
Else I think I will stay

Sometimes people tell me that I'm a little too shy
Sometimes I think I need them if i'll ever get by
Too often I am searching for a friend in the dark
Another pair of hands that can brighten my spark

But they're not coming
It's like I push them away
Yet I'm not caring
I still smile each day
And every heartbeat
Escalates my good mood
These people dancing
Right now they don't seem so crude

Sometimes mother tells me I'm a little too soft
Sometimes father tells me I don't  act very oft
But mostly I am thinking I just need a new song
Something sweet and bouncy that'll move me along

So now it's singing
At the top of our lungs
With each new ringing
We create with our tongues
I don't care now
I just need to be me
No matter how long
I can wait patiently

Too often I am searching for a friend in the dark
Another pair of hands that can brighten my spark
Now that I've found them I'm a little insane
It seems a little weird to have them calling my name

The Pink Lady with yellow Candle-la-bra

Tell me friend 
How best to paint a woman
Brilliantly colourful and extremely fastidious
Who is an African princess
Blending aggression with femininity
And radiates grace, charm and suppleness
The marks of womanhood
A woman who bathes in array of candlelight
With an usual candour for candle-la-bra
Chatty, cheery, and pardonably cheeky
Materialistic, Modern, and Maiden
Exuberant, Extrovert
Rosy and Rounded 
Opinionated and Opportunistic
Meticulous and 
Annoyingly Anorak
A woman who is gorgeously trendy
A wonderful volunteer, a touching friend
With big searching eyes
Talk about the lady also known as 
MEROMA.

Free

Would you have a look of awe on your face
If when I ran, the winds went with me in a race
Would you  smile happily
If when I jumped into the sky, the whole world passed me by
If I closed my eyes
Would you still hold my smiling face in your mind
If I look into the sunset, would you care if you had to hold my hand from behind
Because the stars are looking so bright
I'd rather see the sun
But, when I run the stars lead me
So, if the moonlight mist came and blew me away
Would you reach out and pull me back?
Or would you let me fly away, so I can reach my dreams
If I yelled into the clouds and a bird took me away
Would you climb a tree and look after me
Or would you look all night and day
Follow every sunset and rainbow
Until you found me, dried my tears and took me home
Because ten million miles is too high too jump alone
And four thousand miles is too far too run with out knowing you'll be safe at home

Conversations at dusk

And what if
on that long walk
you had said of me
this in-between day
Is yours.

Would the dry earth open?
Would we burn  bridges
to Consume all?
In the sureness of mind
that our words will repeat.

A thousand islands
bustled along,
streets of dead language and dusk.
While you translated
anograms
on pavement patterns .  

And in the rapid passing of night
we rush from timeless sleep,
and whisper in soft tones
to awaken    
I
the traveller of wind

This memory I write 
is but the conversation of your voice,  
and we will watch 
the sky break again
on the promise that we made.

Death Meets Love

I got trapped in the dark 
the cancer creeps closer towards my heart 
I cant stand the pain that starts

they put a needle in me 
my heart stops beating 
I cant hear my thoughts or what im feeling

everything seems cluttered 
I stand here in a daze 
but your face starts to fade

I start to loose my feeling 
my hands are numb and my toes wont budge
my brain stops working 
little flakes peel off my heart

my heart turns gray 
I cant wait to fly away
in the light I shall go 

somewhere else but my home
where pain meets pleasure and death meets love


Details | Lyric | |

We'll be together

We’ll be together

We’ll be together when the world is gone
For what we have, it just can’t die
There lives no other who can sing our song
The laughing joys, the many tears we cry

To be together is our destiny
It is our dance, it is our song
One grain of sand is still eternity
And whatever is, it can’t be wrong.

So dry your eyes, my child, and  see what is 
For nothing ever, ever can be known
Just live within the moment now, and feel such bliss
And be with me, yet always be alone.

I see such sadness in your eyes, my Dear
Why do you often feel so low?
Well as I watch you child to me it’s very clear
The beauty that is yours you’ll never know.

Once Were Kings

ONCE WERE KINGS

Pigskin sails past outstretched arms
Another inch perhaps?
Grins on faces kids from afar
Memories made memories lapse

Neither friends nor foe, yet strangely so
They seemed like us but strangely no
A tackle too hard, a tackle too late
We share in victory, we share in hate

We huddle like penguins with nearly a sound
Plays are drawn on hands or ground
Nods are given, all is clear
Our secret safe, our secret sound

The play unfolds, not quite as planned
Defense charge, our line outmanned
Quarterback scrambles, the outcome dim
No fear of defeat nor life and limb

A last chance prayer, Hail Mary by name
Don’t anyone say it’s only a game
Bragging rights pending, youth in their prime
It meant so much to us at the time 

Recollection muddied but joy it brings
We meet at ball fields, our kids on swings
Were prayers ever answered?
Does it matter at all?
We were rivals and pals
When we were kings

SEARCH

      SEARCH
Look deep into yourself my friend,
if then, you need to look to me, 
look deep enough to see the end,
beyond the end is where I'll be.

Into the love someday you'll see,
becoming all the things you'll know,
before your very eyes, I'll be
already where you want to go.

I'll be your long and blinding light,
of which all life is awed,
the thread that reaches through the night
in search of what is God.

And in a while, if love is right,
and hope is not just more pretend,
though you have sought what e'er you might,
'tis me you'll find, beyond your end.

And I will love your death away,
removing from your mind
what'er your death might seem to be,
with love most difficult to find.

The Lioness

www.facebook.com/akerev1

My precious was nearly destroyed by an heart breaker
but it was romantically rescued by an heart maker
my strength to trust was nearly gone
lovingly, i have it restored by a miss namely bimbo

Escape from the den of a lioness,
a beautiful kangaroo welcome me into her palace
when i thought that my love life is dead
and that no woman can again equate the balance

money is sweet and marriage is distasteful
those were the vain words of my mouth
cuz i have see too many ladies that are lustful
which weakens my tissues and gives me a bone

i lost a copper but look at the beauty of the silver i have
God have given a great, loving distance companion to my life
to teach me that there are still few that will reject the mark
those whose family not be tear apart

listen to  her and be natural about it
you will see how her beauty glows
her inner beauty is far precious than onyx
her gesture like the flock of mount-Gilead's goat

her is a fountain of honey and milk
no other honeycomb is like my beloved words of her lips
i believe GOD is sending her to me
change my regretful believe

Ever since i met you
i wish to end up with someone like you
i am very to have naked the true
but i wish to have a picture you

Lies Become Life

These are my scars
And I know they haven't gotten me far
But it's complicated
And this is who I am to be

They say everything happens for a reason
Well I have two cents worth a dime
To say nothing good about that line

This isn't really fair
I didn't ask for you to take it this way
I can't just walk away anymore
Keeping my head from that door
Your tricks don't keep it away anymore

This is how I choose it to be
It's the closest I am drowning to be free
And just leave me and let me see

Theres only one way to get it all away
I will stop at nothing and think it all off
Just play that beat and watch me hit the wall

This isn't really fair
I didn't ask for you to take it this way
I can't just walk away anymore
Keeping my head from that door
Your tricks don't keep it away anymore

I won't let you down
And hit the floor
There's apart of me thinking,
I can't do this anymore

I'm truly convinced
That telling you this lie
Will make it the truth in my life

I wont let us down
I'll keep my guard around
And watch my head hit the door
Am bound to fall down
My tears hit the floor
As I lay down
I know I ain't coming back for more

This isn't really fair
I didn't ask for you to take it this way
I can't just walk away anymore
Keeping my head from that door
Your tricks don't keep it away anymore

Missing

Walking around the graveyard
Untaggling his hands from the pocket in his jacket
its clear in his head that he's screaming for something
that something is missing within his heart

Taking off his hat as he sits it on her grave
Pulling out a piece of paper
The death certificate that her name was signed on
a tear falling from his cheek 
he reaches down to pick up the flower he laid there before

crumples at his touch
sitting down the piece of paper
he asked her
how can i love?
when the one i want is not here?

tears fall from his eyes unto the paper 
he lights a candle
sits it by her tombstone

He lays down beside her
listening to the wind
hoping to hear her voice
something he longed for
something that he was missing

he falls asleep
holding the stem of the rose that crumpled before
The pedals fly away with the wind
and the flame of the candle burns out
the rain starts to fall

He lays with his eyes closed
He goes back in time
The rose pedals fall back unto the stem
The paper flies back into his pocket

He walks back into town
Back into the house he was at before
Back at her funeral
to the hospital they were at
When they found out she had cancer
To the church where they got married
To the time when he asked her to marry him
Finally to the place where they met

There story replays again in his mind
he lays cold on the ground beside her
The wind dies down
and the candle starts burning again

Looking for Tomorrow: Lyrics and Song

You can hear here: http://www.muziboo.com/mdegenhardt/music/looking-for-tomorrow/

I can't believe...that it's all gone
Some people I know, they've wandered on
Some have stayed,
While some have gone
I don't even know
But I go
Forward
Looking for tomorrow
I'm looking for tomorrow

And in this time, when money's scarce
I can't decide which is worst
Whether I miss bills
Or miss my kids
I don't even know
But I go
Forward
Looking for tomorrow
I'm looking for tomorrow

I'm looking for tomorrow
We're all looking for tomorrow

Maybe tomorrow will see us through
Until then, what else can I do?

I'm looking for tomorrow
Yeah, working for tomorrow
We're all looking for tomorrow
Looking for tomorrow

OLd Bob

Old Bob he was my hero
In a funny kind of way.
Although I never knew it then
I just thought he was okay.
We used to pass some hours away
Talking deep and mystic things.
And Bob would  strum his old guitar
And sometimes he would sing.

I‘d spruke a bit in them gone days
I was a foolish little man.
I’d act all kind of  knowing
Like all things I’d understand.
But old Bob He'd take it in his stride
With his knowing little  smile.
Yet he would never put me down
No that was not his style.

Old Bob, I never knew him
But I’m proud he called me mate.
He was my Maori warrior
Sent down to me by fate.

Old Bob’s no longer with us
That old cancer took his life.
But he just took it in his stride
When he knew his time was rife.
He woke up smiling, then he died
So I know he found that space.
Old Bob he joined his warriors
With a smile upon his face.

Sitting On The Ground - Our Friendship Bond and Our Vital Vows

I’m sure of it – we’ll do good enough in the long run
Let the crazy, busy, and sunny day begin and I welcome the sun
Do you welcome the sun?
You’re a lot of fun 
Let’s run in the sun
Embrace your passions and good side 
Our friendship bond is like a marriage commitment between a good-looking groom and a beautiful bride!

There’s a recompense for doing the right,loyal, and faithful thing…there’s a way out of captivity – don’t be fenced in by ferocious fears and be conquered by life-changing, wonderful cheers and be free like deer, hopping into the fervor-blossoming flower fields…have no feeling of overwhelming fear! You have no excuse for cheating on me - not while I'm around here...
Embrace your passions…never let it go…
Do your thing, oh you darling peace-abiding angel…oh, you peace-crafting angel of light – can you linger by my side everywhere I feel, darling, oh darling angel…believe and be stable – 
Embrace your passions…never let it go…
And do your thing and be my everything – don’t be scattered on the ground like beads or shattered glass everywhere you step…and gloriously sing and bring everyone peace in mind with your unique, relishing ring – flourish like the tall grain in the golden terrain…fill everyone’s hearts with perpetual cheer! 
Embrace your passions…never let it go…
You are such a beauty from every single angle…untangle me from the web of bewilderment and spread cream cheese to my bagel! Read God’s bible – nothing close to a mad myth or a frivolous fable! Place those beliefs under the table and give as you are able! 

You gottah get up and try as P!nk sings in her song
Embrace your passions with me...and you'll slowly, but surely belong!

Go with the flow of the current of the aqua-blue sky
Kiss the abyss "farewell" - sit back and chillax and be high like a kite

Embrace your passions…never let it go…
Bring me to my dwelling place called Dandelion Delight
It’s time to face what we’ve done…
One…two…three…four
Guide me to my heavenly haven called Illuminated Night
It’s time to run the race – we’ll survive the run…
Four…three…two…one…
We’re sittin’ on the fence, 
Catching a glimpse at the sundrenched sight
Am I makin’ any sense?
Watching a marvelous sunset transform into an illuminated night
Hand me a bouquet of stars 
Don’t remind me of my past scars
Who can mend them now?
Embrace your passions…never let it go…
You’re more precious than the best of poetry 

Do you know where the wind does blow?
It’s a mystery to conceal…say that you want to fall in love with me
’Cause I want to practice by admiring you with 100% certainty that you’re the one that I want to spend the rest of my life with…someday, the day will come somehow…this moment with you is so unreal
How can you blossom like fireworks in the midnight sky? I ponder about this as I find myself sitting on the ground – gravity-bound… How? Somehow, you do it…someday, I’ll know how! I wanna learn to give you space when you need it and I’ll know for sure that you’re my Only Devotion...how did these scars heal? Is it you, my dearest angel? I’m not insecure, but I do take things to the next level – it’s no good deal
Fight for the right purpose and fight the good fight…the reason I fight is for your sake…alright?
You and I will earn beyond-brilliant-and-flawless peace….don’t let the bright opportunities fade…you don’t make me flip out, but you allow me to look at the bright side of life – you’re the reason I’m shimmering anew and I’m the most handsome tint, not a shameful shade 
Fight with your might – there’s an afterlife to look forward to – everything will be black and white
You’re quite a dashing princess – gracious evermore – go play that majestic melody of yours – I want you to know that you’re as sharp and tough as my favorite pocket blade

Come, face this roller coaster with me and go along with the ride 
Face your fears…look them in the eye – you’re gonna be fine with me, though we’re not sitting on the ground…but later on, it’s a possibility possibly…
Go with the flow and put your hands in the air like you don’t care – care to be by my side?
Face your fears…face them eye to eye like a wo-man–you’re gonna be OK with me around…I guarantee! Stay with me and echo your feelings of ecstasy! Think of us next to a sparklin’ sea with serene shores washing against our bodies as one gaily…so happily…so merrily, do we sing! 
Bring us accord and don’t sow discord, 
Let your talents, gifts and high spirits take wing
Let’s sip some wine and be as happy as two jovial pigs in the mud – happiness, free will, and joyfulness are what we can afford!

Let's lock hands and make an agreement and a special bond plus a scared oath...
Like grand lands - just kick back and chillax for a time - you're the one I'll never have the heart's desire to loath
Spread butter to the toast...and slice away all doubt
You're the one I can't help but boast about
You lead me to a nirvana-like, narrow pathway
Come follow me as I blow you XOXO's along the way
Let positivity drive us on and trek that big mountain
Shine on, dear angel of unbreakable, ardeous strength, like the dawn - weep no more, you fretful fountain . . . 
Let God's healing rain heal our pain
That's been driving you and I insane...but we're still sane,
Driving on our love-abiding, painless lane

Promise me you won't break our friendship vows...

The Escapist's Plea

When you can longer run away from yourself
When you thought there were no more tears to cry
When you just want to die
Living like this consumed by the façade of a million lies
So many years, so many days
Waking up to people who no longer care you're there
You ask how can this be, one short organic vitality
Wasted with living; the slowest way to die

The shadows of shame weigh you down 
Until you drown, filled with only their hate
All you can turns grey, and all you ever loved fades
The agony is all you know, thank you pain
A self-sadist Is all you have become, j
ust how they showed you, craving so much more
Just to hide up all of the misery
But under cloth it still bleeds

This is the Escapist's Plea
For the one who fall to their knees in misery
Trying to stay sane but fall under September's rain
Dying from the invisible disease, only you can see
Stigmatized by their sadistic need
Only if I could just fly away
...Fly Away

Until then the blind can see

                 Until then the blind can see"
Life is like a blank sheet,
What will be written on the sheet of your life,
Depends on you,
When we become silent to things that affect our soul negatively,
We are dead, in the midst of the living,

Look around you,
The sun sims to be down,
Clouds of illusion moving,
Towards the Mountains of magic,
The more you look,
the less you see,

When you believe blindly,
You are doom,
To manipulation,

Who opened up,
The pages of your life symbol?
Who put the writings,
In your life sheet?

If is you,
Then is right, otherwise 
Mean manipulation (darkness),
How can you see?
When darkness is all you wonder in?

Too long we hoped,
Too long we lament,
Too long we prayed,
Yet the change sims too far,

All around,
Like a true picture,
I see clearly,
Blind souls wondering,
In a mysterious dark side of life,

Waiting for a saviour,
To come,
And take away,
the afflictions of there pains,

Struggling to make a promise land,
Hopeing to make heaven at last,
While,
Burning blindly like a hell,
Here on planet earth,

The blind always needs a help,
Light can never shine,
In the eye of the blind,
But when it does,
Until then the blind can see.

Bloodfelt

Prickly winter sunshine dope,
Seems the water has drowned the ice
That had shaped the curse so long,
Like the truffle creame,
Painting lives with blood, despair
Robust tears like storms..
Washing the clay away,
Off the face of reality,
Ruby pearls rolling down
My thorny throat, 
That had gone astray,
In the guts, imprisoned my naive soul
Sings the freedom song,
My eyes look up at the dark blue sky
Images traced up in the mind,
I see the face, that i had hurt,
And the thorn grows a bit more,
The tunes are heavenly, morose
Blinds the childish ears..
As I retreat to my unholy shell,
And silence had spoken on my behalf,
Th face I had hurt is wild with words.
The thorn grows a bit more,
Piercing my throat,
Rolling down were the ruby pearls..
That breathed in the winter sunshine again,
I did cry,
But the last song of my soul,
Blinded the ears.

Christmas in July!

The family is all gathered, Just like Christmas Day; All lined up in bikini’s, Soaking up the ray’s; The beach front sure is hot, In the middle of July; On the deck catchin’ catfish, So we can have a catfish fry; Playin’ beach volleyball, In Daisy Duke shorts; With friends and family, Of all different sorts; At night there’s a bonfire, We’re all makin’ S’mores; It’s so nice to spend, Our Christmas outdoors; It’s a gift to be here together, And that’s what Christmas brings; It doesn’t matter the time of year, From winter to summer to spring; And I sure love when Christmas, Comes around in July; All those warm and fuzzy feelings, When the temperature is high!

ATMOSPHERE,

A lonesome dove

feathered white.

The branch strong,

time light.

...no "wait".

A dream.

really blowing a sweet breeze.

...no "wait".

A heart beat sitting in a tree,

spirit like,

...no "wait".

A rhyme.

...of atomosphere.

Just hold me close

Happiness
And love is all
I wanted
Is that so hard?
Just to be told that I matter in this world
Just to be loved 
By a boy or girl
But I’m happy
To have you in my life
Without you
I don’t know where I’d be

So don’t leave me here in the dark
Just hold me close
And love me for now
Don’t go away
Just stay here and say
That you love me too

I waited my whole life for someone like you
Just my best friend
I can confess to
Tell everything I ever needed to say
I’m lucky to have you all the way
You’re my heart
My soul
The happiness that I found
The angel I know

So don’t leave me here in the dark
Just hold me close
And love me for now
Don’t go away
Just stay here and say
That you love me too

I need you
I want you
I’m addicted to you
I love you * 3

[Instrumental]

Your arms around me
So tight
So warm inside
My heart is whole
When I’m with you
I know you are the best thing to happen to me


To: Dhrashti my best friend in the universe! I love u sis! <3

Prelude to a Scream

You always were the need in me;
You end my hate and misery
When I hear winds starting to sing,
But the chorus serves a prelude to a scream.

You always bring the best out of me.
You pass it like a dowry,
And when I hear you calling in the breeze
My silence serves a prelude to a scream.

Your echo in my mind keeps me hanging;
I know the light has left, but it's still fading.
Dreams tumble; water is cascading,
But I still see the flare and I am wading.

You always were the queen of brevity.
Your dances seem to defy gravity,
And when I think on what will never be,
The silence serves a prelude to a scream.

May no one live to take the best of me.
I'll live and laugh and smile for this dream.
I'll love and I will honor everything,
But if I'm brought to harm, then I will scream.



Dedicated to Laura Pizzini; Rest in peace, my dear friend.

Fall

 Fall is my favorite time of year.
 I just love when you ride in the country and see all the pretty colors of leaves on the trees.
 See the kids having lots of fun jumping up and down as the autumn colors fall to the ground.

 The air is so crisp and clean and you feel alive.
 The wind blowing through the trees is so nice to hear.
 Children everywhere running and jumping with such a cheer.

  Fall brings out the child in us all.
  Not too far behind is the holiday season
  we all look forward to.
  Bright lights, decorations, toys and all,
  But nothing could come close then watching
  the fist snowflake fall.

Only you can

Last night you asked me
To find you a reason to live
You said life has drown you
You said you can no longer breathe

Well I know how it feels
Cause I once was there
Losing faith of everything
Start to surrender..a complete surrender

But you see
There will always be a way
But you see
Sadness will not forever stay
If you let your self feels the pain
If you let your heart heal the pain

Wounds may cannot be erased
But you got to take your chance
And forgiving..forgiving your self is all you have to do
You should try to..simply, cause you have to

Only you can..
Only you can..
Only you can..
Only you.

Drum Beat

Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Boom boom tap.
Holy. Freaking. Crap.

Here come the snare drums,
With the bass drums,
And the cymbals,
The band follows.

I have a secret.
Everyone knows it.
And I don't know about,
If I can contain this shout.

And I don't know,
If I can take it anymore.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Tap tap tap.
Boom-de-tap-tap.
The marching band's coming.
You better start moving.

They don't stop.
All of them just stomp- stomp- stooooomp.


I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

This song probably makes,
No sense.
But there's really no,
Deep meaning.

These are the facts...
Literally everyone goes,
Crap, crap, crap.

I got that drum beat.
Not just in my feet,
But in my heart.
But it's just too hard.
This girl's got her drum beat.
She can take the heat.
But when it comes to love,
She's... Down to drugs.
But not those kind where,
You can feel fear.
It's already there.

Zoom zoom zoom.
Zoom te zoom zoom.
My heart goes boom boom.
But you just see it through.
Like it's a clear,
Drum beat.

Shining Sun

new song/poem! :) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I look outside my window Watch the rain fall down like tears Hoping that someday It’ll wash away my fears But they never clear They never go away And they haunt me every single minute Of every single day Maybe someday This will all just turn to dust I’ll just do what I need— Just do what I must… Without you Without you Here Find it in your heart To have a little care Find it in your heart To know that I am there Find it in your heart I know you think I’m strange But find it in your heart To believe that I can change With you With you Here I write this down in sadness Wishing you can see Knowing that none of it Makes sense to you or me And there’s nothing here There’s nothing I can say To make the clouds depart And the icky mood to fade I hope that someday When I am old and gray I’ll just laugh a sigh and wonder: What the hell was wrong with me? Find it in your heart To see me through the pane Find it in your heart To unchain me from this chain Find me in your heart I know that I am young But find it in your heart To make me someone Forever— And ever Your shining sun

With Smoker's Hands

Through years of chuckles and vivid imagery,
They sit across from each other;
Inventing moment to moment another day,
Past transparent overlays.
Smoke encircles 
	new-found wrinkles,
In ends so filled with friendship.
Then one day the smoke stopped.
No more to circle overhead
Where French Fries and flea markets
Meant more than friends.
An empty room is filled more now
With sorrow than they could with laughs.
And through a vacant stare
A veteran of his craft
Demolishes his white canvas ~
		with smoker’s hands.

Beyond What's Seen

You do not know what I see
I see you crying next to me
I see your pain, I see your tears
Through your laughs, and through the years
Past your mask I see your face
You are hiding in this place
Trust in me, I won't let you fall
You don't have to hide at all

Open up what's in your heart
That is the place I will start
Open up your eyes and see
All that's left is you and me
In the end you'll see the light
Come on, I don't want to fight
Together we will make it through
Come on. Now, It's me and you

Now you can start to feel
How much this love is true and real 
behind your eyes you keep your pain
It's all locked up in your brain
Come on. Now, just let it out
It's okay to scream and shout
I will help you through and through
I will always be with you

Anna

The childish silliness
The sweet clumsiness
The burning storm
On your head
My everyday trial of patience.

You piss me off
All the time

All the time
You make me smile

I want to kill you
With squeezing hug

Whenever you cry
My soul tears apart.

One smile of yours -
The sun shines again
Even if it rains outside.



Sight of you
Weakens me

I lose my cruelty
My hunger for revenge:

My violent arms soften
My veins loose;


You need me
as much as
Vital you are
to my wild heart
not to burst hatred.

You teach me 
patience and tenderness,

Sometimes I hate you
I love you always
Though not in love am I.



I shall be yours
till the end of time
To make you happy
- a new goal in life:

Whatever your wish from me
Will happen
Always and ever

Forever to you
I am devoted

My dear friend,
No easier words
would paraphrase
the essential emphasis
of what I feel
but
'I love thee' -
Every single day.

Which Way

June 21, 2013


We've been floating through the years
Just you and me my dear
Without a worry on our minds
Or a watch to keep the time

Which way will you go
Which way will you go
If you take the road less traveled
You're much less likely to unravel

Where have you gone
I can't seem to find you anywhere but here
Right by my side where you belong
Holding hands and singing songs

Of a time long gone
When the long forgotten speak
Their minds
And we let ours go in time

Which way will you go
Which way will you go
If you take the road less traveled
You're much less likely to unravel

How will you answer
My love
Will you trust in your beloved
Or look to the stars above

As the days roll by
I wonder why
Which will
Which will you try

LET THESE WORDS CRY FOR ME

baby its killing me
its something on your mind you wont reveal to me
but lately its obvious you ain't really feeling me

we sleep under the same roof inside the same room in between the same 
covers
but still distant lovers

and every day that passes increases the distance
and even when we touch I taste the lies in your kisses

use to be my princess said I was your Knight in shining armor
vowed to love cherish and honor

but lately all i get is anger from your mouth
I feel like Tamia " it's a stranger in my house "

you want me bad like Bobby sensitive like Ralph
it leaves a sickness in my stomach when I try to figure out

why my baby so hateful lately
its driving me crazy
Im praying daily

and I don't want to argue but she just wont shut up
day after day the same thing I'm getting fed up
I need relief from this migraine pains it wont let up
now "Im looking at the front door" like Large Professors     (MAIN SOURCE SONG)

and I will come

…and I will come.
When the first snow falls down/ 
when the fall gives its rights/ 
to the winter/
you know I will come/
for good or for bad/
I’ll board the train/
Passing by / stations/ and countries/
I promised/ and I remember/
You said “there’s no fortuitous meetings/

…and I will come.
When the first snow falls down/
When you’ll lose the trace/
When my firmest snickers/ wipe out/
I will/ I will come…
Unexpectedly/ knowing solely the door/
Just the road / for sure/
Before/ take you I’ll ask/
“are you ready to go?” / 
You are ready/ I know/
All the noise doesn’t matter/
I don’t haste/ will be later/

…I will come.
When it finally turns out/
That November is overthrown by December/
When the first snow falls down/
Will be clear/ that nobody is remembered/ 

And I will come…
Somewhere in chest/ between ribs/
You slashed me/ with thoughts/ 
I can feel it with lips/ crawling under my cloths/
Our world is alive/ our life/ we’re alike/
And I….

I will come.
When the first snow falls down/
When the death is changed into fate/
When the winter gives up/ 
To wait/ for spring/
to stay with shining sun/

My Friend The Piano

You carried my emotions from the start
Each emotion bound in the small black note
Each one coming straight from my chilly heart
The music you make is my antidote
Through the preludes my comfort softly lay
By way of mazurkas my soul does fly
But to divulge you must learn how to play
Although learning is not a piece of pie
Piano brings emotions around town
You have the power to bring my heart up
Or throw me on the floor and beat me down
There are hard times when I just want to cup
My hands in my face and rock back and forth
And think Piano is a friend of worth

WHO LOVES AMERICA

....WHO LOVES AMERICA? --- HAPPY FIRECRACKER DAY!
.......verse 1
Once upon a good time, not so very long ago
There was America, America the dream God used to know.
Where went America, that all the world loved so?
Once upon a time, not so very long ago?
Where went America, the one the world loved so?

......chorus
Who loves America the way she's meant to be?
Who still loves God's dream, from sea to shining sea? Shining sea?
Who loves America the world depended on?
Who loves America?
I can't believe she's gone.
God save America.

......Children Singing Bridge (Pledge of Allegiance)
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the republic for which it stands
one nation, under God, indivisable
with liberty and justice for all

Repeat Chorus.

The song, WHO LOVES AMERICA?,  plays by default on my poetry website, (still under construction in places,) AND you also hear the children reciting our PLEDGE OF ALLEGANCE the way it should be recited. Beautiful they did so great. It is at vbdosa.com that is all I need to type in my browser, should be the same for you. Mac users may not hear it the song.

THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU

     THIS MUCH I PROMISE YOU
I know too well, we have to see
Some times in life that shouldn't be.
But through it all, in all I do,
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.

Our song may not tell everything
About the hurt that time can bring.
But through each pain we're going through,
Every song I ever sing, I'll always sing it for you..

This much I promise you.
I'll always have this love for you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

This much I promise you.
I'll always share this love with you.
Every day in every way
This much--this much I promise you.

Sometimes we go without a prayer
Because we just don't see one there.
But God is there, in all we do.
Everytime I ever pray, I'll pray a little for you.

I know sometimes we have to cry.
Because of love, I don't know why.
But through each tear I'm going through
Every time I ever cry, I'll cry a little for you. 

Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
Everything I ever do, I'll always do it for you.
 This much I promise you.

It's freakin' me out, can't ya see?
My vision of nicety
don't include spicity

My soul still feels staid and moral
but if people take note of me
in this state they won't rate

Strangers they truly were 
Acquintance they later become 
Friends they agreed to be 
Lovers their emotion speak 
Soul Mates the journey turns to be. 

They've chosen to be with each other 
How Beautiful she is in his arms 
How Handsome he looks when with her 
Two Hearts beating the rhythm of Love 
Oneness of life their purpose now is. 

She accepts his maleness with the flaws 
He accepts her physique with the character 
In their eyes their Love only they see 
In their hearts alone lies their shortcomings 
A blissful life their hear truly yearn for.

Pick Pocket Heart

I want to gather some sweet flower:
Sweet sweet blossoms of flowers,
Inside my red red pick pocket heart.

Hoping you're still be there,
Waiting to ask me to be your mine.

But I've found something different,
Something that makes me bite my lips,
The only thing I'd no longer expect,
Because of the crazy things that I held.

Though I know it will sounds funny,
To say something you've always telling,

Even if I cried in bitting my lips,
I tell you something, I've found special.
Its you here in my red red pick pocket heart.

what's mine is yours and you can keep your own
no need for a payback, but your word is gold
You can't judge a man by his cloths or is ride 
But it ain't a truck if it lacks four wheel drive and a bowtie

t-shirts and bikinis

it was a day after the rain 
but we didn't care 
bought two packs of beer
the smell of the boat 
as the engine let off smoke 
the first turn of the key 
would bring us to our beach 
a few cans pushed back 
we could only laugh 
my best friend and I 
with t-shirts and bikinis 
we were the sight to see 
the girls would arrive 
with her by my side 
wild looks in our eyes 
an older man's thrill 
better than his pills 
a show, we were stars 
at the local bar 
and as the boat rocked
we never stayed docked 
as we cruised down the river side.

Kurt

i am kurt daniel everdean 
I am 21 years old
I've been playing the bass guitar
Since I was 11
i weight 145 pounds
i have blondish brown hair
and blue eyes

If I could say one thing about me that I like... Its that I never gave up.


things started when i lost my father
i was 10 years old
my mother started going to her room everytime she got home
she would come out with her eyes all red... Shes been crying
until i accidently walked in on her doing drugs
i now believe it was the drugs that caused the redness
me and my brother would fight everynight
when i bought my first bass
he slammed it against the floor
and told me since i think my lifes crap
then i shouldnt have anything that makes me happy
My mom became a street whore
She would dress in a golden gown and wear ugly make up
We would never see her 
unless she needed money to get condoms for her "men"

the things between me and my brother got worse
I was arguing with him over a text he sent my mom
And he got into an accident and died that night

Things just never got better
I created a band called the nocturnal
And the reason you haven't heard of us yet
Is because were an underground punk band in Seattle
we haven't gotten far yet
Just underground party's and bars

My mom ended up running away with her "boyfriend"
After my brother died she blamed me
And told me to leave and said she won't come around me
Until I brought him back

Since then I've gotten a job and was able to pay rent on
My moms old apartment
Hoping shed come back clean and sober
As for me
I've cleaned up. but suicide is still an option

I haven't found god yet and I don't want to
If there was a god why did he give me this ****ed up life
Ya you'll say Kurt?... You made the desicions for your life
I knolw I did. But he was the one who let it actually happen

I've been writing since I was 11
Lyrics and poems
Drawings and paintings
bass guitar and vocals

My life isn't over
But it's sure close to it

Its sad to think that what you thought was fake... Is a true story

A Quarrel Of Friends

Things of value and much importance
Can tend to separate friends in accordance
The family, the life and are one's happiness
The thought of wrangles with unexpected origins
And throwing minds so blown away as by storm
Finding peace in what is to perform
False wisdom from envy and selfish ambition
Wishing to have what your friend has which is bringing collision
This thinking otherwise, taming totally your lies
About which is impossible, made this being possible in truth so washable
What a quarrel of friends, to tell the truth that offends
Friendship is turning dark and perversely so black
And you cannot see them in front only at your back
Turning this friendlier, thought of whose are interior
Should we be this quarrelsome in an audience full of applause?

On The Brink

On the brink of crying,
on the brink of dying,
what are you gonna do?On the brink of cryin‘,
On the brink of dyin‘,
You’ve gotta listen to your soul now, too.

Now think of this situation,
This is a poem, but also a conversation
If you don’t want to hurt those around you
You’ve gotta help yourself first then the other few

On the brink of cryin‘,
On the brink of dyin‘,
What are you gonna do?
On the brink of cryin‘,
On the brink of dyin‘,
If you don’t wanna hear the truth
Then you better not do something stupid, but instead new
On the brink of cryin‘,
On the brink of dyin‘,
What are you gonna do?
On the brink,
On the brink,
I’m on the brink of cryin’
‘Cause inside I’m
‘Cause inside I’m
‘Cause inside I’m dyin’
I’m on the,
I’m on the, I’m on the brink.

Lady Killer

Is it true that there's another
You never mentioned him.
I, by way of another, discovered,
That you have a boyfriend.

Well, I never told you of her;
Truth be told, I am single.
How much is there to think over,
To decide if I need you?

Maybe friendship is best,
Whether just now, or forever.
Even if you'd say yes,
Which is for the better?

FOR AN IRISH LASS

   FOR AN IRISH LASS 
In a constant lack of motion 
through the window of your mind, 
all you seek is your seclusion 
and a friend you never find; 
you've been looking through the window 
to someone you never see, 
never reaching for a reason,
never thinking I'm just me. 
     As if you want to be alone. 
      Or just another skipping stone, 
       with someone who's better known. 

In the hopeless life you're living, 
all your friends have left you cold, 
it's a ferris wheel you're riding, 
and the song is getting old; 
all the things you've held most dearly 
come to nothing in the end, 
and your search is overlooking 
someone more than just your friend. 
      Someone who'd be there when you cry. 
       Who'd never think of asking why; 
        I will help you learn to fly. 

Living songs about confusion 
like a puppet on a string, 
one is pulled and your responding 
is whatever pull should bring; 
you will go in this direction 
everyone says you should go, 
and the person you are hiding 
is someone you'll never know. 
     Out through the window, I'm your friend. 
      From your beginning, to your end, 
       I will give, but never lend.

About, Me & You

You & me, so long we've been together,
Why can't you see?  Look inside..  I would never,
Ever want to be, a traitor to my lover,
You're the mother of my child, there could never be another.

I love to think about the day when we first met,
The day you walked into my life, how could I forget?
I let you deep into my heart, now my mind's set,
Because I love you, there's not a single regret.

It's never black and white, we are both shades of grey,
Now the world is full of colour and it's a fine day,
You extend my power, nothing gets into our way,
They say that love is blind, but this vision's here to stay.

Now this feeling's been refined, in the fires of time,
That have raged through our hearts, all along the line,
Your smile shines down on my face, so divine,
It's a crime to wastle a love, that is so sublime.

I can be the rock, that weathers the storm,
When the cold creeps in, I'll still be warm,
I'm no Millionaire, though I'm richer than you know,
Because I've got you Girl.

When we were broke, we still didn't choke,
The hardtimes fell, but we saw it as a joke!
We worked and played hard.. but we saw the smoke,
As the pressure awoke, to bring stress and to provoke.

Opposites attract, because we both come back,
It's a fact that I missed you, be we never ever lacked,
Any reason to react, you'll agree, we're both cracked,
You high-jacked my heart!  So start showing some tact!

Let us stay this way, today and tomorrow,
And any other day..  there are plenty more to follow,
We've no debt to pay, no reason to borrow,
We've got a light to shine, in the darkness of sorrow.

It has been so long Girl, we've gotta be strong,
And let time make right, what once went wrong,
I'll sing you any song..  in my heart you belong,
I just know we should carry on..

I was the rock, that weathered the storm,
The cold crept in, and I was still warm,
I'm no Millionaire, but I'm still richer than you know,
But now I haven't got you Girl..

The Air

Sweet scents Fill my empty lungs I can hardly relent From singing the unsung Is as before These places I adore But the breath will be my death If my heart keeps racing And I keep embracing The sweet spring air The air I breathe now Is the air we shared then How Can I get back what's already been? Words trace down my throat Bittersweet after taste Gently afloat But becoming a waste It is the same here It is the same there But the sun is not here And the wind is not there Only clear blue tears And the silent dare The air I breathe now Is the air we shared then But please how Can I get back what's already been?

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.

Find

Find

Search and you will find
What does that mean?
Where does it reside?
Where are the hidden parts of your life?
Does peace rely on strife?
Look inside.

You'll find your life.
You'll find your dreams.
You'll find what life truly means.
You'll find the hope that you need and the love in between.
You'll find the thoughts you've longed to share
and the one whom will care. 
You'll find your home established right there.
You'll find yourself anywhere.
Deep within your heart and mind,
Seek and you will find.

Don't stop searching. 
Your treasure hunt has only just begun.
It may be hard at first, but you'll find your fun. 

You'll find your life.
You'll find your dreams.
You'll find what life truly means.
You'll find the hope that you need and the love in between.
You'll find the thoughts you've longed to share
and the one whom will care. 
You'll find your home established right there.
You'll find yourself anywhere.
Deep within your heart and mind,
Seek and you will find.

There is more to life than this.
Keep climbing.
You'll soon become that unstoppable bliss,
in the perfect timing. 

You'll find your life.
You'll find your dreams.
You'll find what life truly means.
You'll find the hope that you need and the love in between.
You'll find the thoughts you've longed to share
and the one whom will care. 
You'll find your home established right there.
You'll find yourself anywhere.
Deep within your heart and mind,
Seek and you will find.

journaled into Hip-Hop

dear journal:

hip hop to me is a DREAM WITH A JOURNAL,

a journal with written poems about yourself,

about your health, or maybe about how you need help,

think of it as an autobiography,

written from your life's history,

a journal with misery hidden behind each page,

sadness that might lead up to madness with a slight rage,

a journal about your best or maybe even your worst day,

but most of all a journal that says what you want it to say.

Dread Life

You said you’d never walk away,
All I wanted was for you to stay.
I hold tight to my pain
Why did you go I never felt the same.
The sky is red
You never had time for what I have said.
All I wanted was for my parents to stay,
But ever since I keep dreading that day.
What did I do wrong,
I listen to music and write songs.
Why did I get left alone,
That just means this was never my real home.
You cut me open,
Just with the words you have spoken.
Call me names and bring me down,
I promise you’ll never see me frown.
You won’t come in the way of my dreams,
You never knew what I really mean.
You took my words and spun them around,
I will never be that person left on the ground.
This is for the day you make me dread,
My birthday will be forever dead.
I will succeed without you,
My friends are all I need that’s my crew.

MY CHARMING PRINCESS

You are truly Charming
My Princess and Priceless Jewel.
I drank your beauty with my eyes 
and my heart became drunk with love. 
I desire you when I admire you.

You are an Epitome of Beauty 
alas, an Epitome of womanhood.
You are the Angel of my life.
Thank you for being mine.
I love you Always.

I Live for the Chorus

Seasons come
Seasons go
Some prefer to stay numb
Some prefer nights that stay aglow

Not me
I like to be
The one who breathes
The tears
And cries the air we fear
I live for the chorus

I'm the one 
Whose laugh runs
Through stillness
And breaks the stiffness

I wish to be surrounded
By ones who turn black to red
Our laughter mingles
Senses tingle

Our voices join
You and me
In harmonious glee
Raucous as the sea
We live for the chorus

As Simple As It Sounds

I.
All you need to know is that I’ll be your friend
All you kneed to know is I’ll be there
There to tell you that I’ll be with you
There to stay wherever you want me to be

Chorus
This is the best thing that you can give
To let me be with you as long as I live
Don’t be afraid for what’s in store
Open your heart and let’s explore

II.
In good times and bad I’ll be around
To turn those silly frowns upside down
You have nothing to fear because I am here
To share your life with you in joy and in tears

Chorus
This is the best thing that you can give
To let me be with you as long as I live
Don’t be afraid for what’s in store
Open your heart and let’s explore

Oh God

Oh God! Give me light
Please make me fight
Oh God! Make me bright
Please make me rise
Oh God! Bless my heart
Please make the darkness depart
Oh God! Bestow on me love
Please make me realize
That happiness or sadness
Be there sunrises or sunsets
Be it good days or bad…
They happen only to proclaim
Your might and your insight
Please God ! Pour on me peace
Let the turmoil decease!
Make me strong
Make me bold
Today and forever
Make me yours!

GAMES TO THE HEART

TELLING SOMEONE YOU LOVE THEM,
AND NOT MEANING A WORD OF IT,
TELLING THEM YOU WANT TO BE,
WITH THEM FOREVER AND HAVE,
A FAMILY WITH THEM,
WHEN YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE ELSE,
YOU JUST LEAD THEM ON TO BELIEVE,
THAT THEY ARE YOUR DREAM COME TRUE,
BUT YET YOU CAN'T SHOW THEM IN ANYWAY,
AND MAKE THEM BELIEVE CAUSE OF YOUR ACTIONS!

SO, SEARCH YOUR HEART, MIND, AND SOUL,
AND FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS YOU REALLY WANT,
IN YOUR LIFE AND FOR YOUR LIFE,
BECAUSE NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU HAPPY, 
IF YOU AREN'T HAPPY YOURSELF.
BY THE LOOKS OF THINGS,
YOU ARE NOT HAPPY BY NO MEANS,
AND YOU KEEP HURTING THOSE WHO,
CARE THE MOST FOR YOU.

SO, WHEN YOU ARE READY TO SLOW DOWN,
AND ENJOY THE PLEASURES OF LIFE,
YOU KNOW YOU CAN LOOK FOR ME TO BE THERE,
YOUR ONE TRUE FRIEND WHO HAS CARED,
FOR YOU FROM THE START,
EVEN THROUGH ALL OF YOUR GAMES TO MY HEART,
I HAVE NEVER TURNED MY BACK ON YOU,
LIKE MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE,
WHICH SHOULD SHOW YOU, 
I TRULY LOVE YOU FROM MY HEART!

Bubble Gum Bubble Gum

Candy was money
 !0  speeds
  Were motorcycles
    Foreplay
was when you'd run away and hide
   But would always let me find you
Your hello's were my new morning sun
                And your goodbye's tucked me in
When I wasn't really trying to say goodnight
     To a beautiful young one
That was older than me then
  I wanted you to be my woman
   But you just wanted us to be friends
I was always cute
          But you never said I was handsome
   Kinda crazy how we knew  about the pains and troubles
And things when we had never had none
 As Long as we had Bubble Gum Bubble Gum

A Resolute Parasite

You my friend are all around.
Feasting and nourishing, and setting your grounds.
Within the hearts and souls of many you blossom.
Is it I or do you seek out happiness and wash’em.
Wash’em out of every modest soul, yes you do,
No looking back, no check, no approve.
Ways to destruct lives you ponder upon, you brood .
I hear the pain, shaken up inside of you.
The seas shall rise, and doubt what once seemed true.
The anger inside of you is like a volcano on the verge of eruption.
I hearken to the ache in that once harmonic voice. 
That is now, only to me perceived as a melody of a shattered soul.
It is a hidden forlorn song, yes it is
Your pain, you veiled from the world
But my friend, I am here, do please unfold!
Unfold your pain to me, let it be ours, let it be free!
Let me act as an avenging angel
That sweeps your pain and sorrows of yesterday
And creep in better tomorrows 
Do not frown upon a broken heart, or a departed lover
Let not that pain upon your shoulder hover
I beg both of thee, unfold your pain to me, let it be ours, let it be free
Together we shall drive a dagger straight to its heart
Straight in to that parasites heart, we shall slay, 
For within these boundaries no parasites as the like of this, shall stay
So my friend, I beg thee, do unfold your pain to me
Let it be ours
Let it be free

Companion

COMPANION

Countless hours, time no concern
Side by side, how much we’ve learned
Through ups and downs and thick or thin
We march together, new tales to spin

No longer a canter, your gait without pep
Rumors mills churning
Have you lost a step?
Senses diminished, speckles of white
Onward we push, onward we fight

Betrayal of age, the cycle of life
Sauntering quietly, causing much strife
Our hearts melded solid, our thoughts are as one
Losing the battle but war has been won

Not always together, at times on our own
Filling days with dreams we have grown
Dreams of nirvana, dreams of gold
Dreams spent together
Never get old

Someday I know our paths must part
Furry fellow dear to my heart
One knows a place where dreams come true
Side by side, just me and you

Comedian's Song

These yellow sands mark his trip,
    Seeking Love's grip:
He bows, yearning Her moist lips,
    (the wild wind whips.)
Each step he's made with great care,
Not dispersed with despair.
"Come, come!,
    Now,now!",
    Watch's mouths plead, "How?"
"Now, now.
    Come, come!", They beg,
A proud old horse with a tired leg.
Sing, "Joker laughs at you!"
Many miles 'way, his might waits;
    Of his deeds, legends are told;
Those, his words, he dared the Fates:
    Nothing of his can be sold,
Only change from his pocket,
A charming, likened locket.
All gather, again, to ask "How?",
Dry chuckled answer's, "C'mon now."

Being alive is joyful

Who has never felt grief
When a small gesture would have helped
but it has ,unknowingly, been with held?
How many people have the imagination
to guess what's in your mind,
And to embrace you rather than push you away?
No-one,No-one.No-one knows.
No-one knows these numbers.
No-one knows these names.
No-one knows how many feel diffident,
Nor how many feel shame.

Being alive is joyful!
Being alive is pain!
Being alive is all we have,
We'll never be alive again.

I look into your eyes today
I sense your shame and woe.
I look into your eyes just now
And tell you that I know,

Being alive is lonely.
Being alive is good.
Being alive is pain indeed
For flesh is not like wood.

Can you hear the rain

Jew, jew, can you hear the rain
The swallows have come home
There is a flood in the sugarcane
And he wonders where you roam

Jew, jew can you hear the rain
The mangoes fall from every tree
Children are dancing in the lane
And he keeps vigil and memory

Jew, jew can you hear the rain
The sun is gone, now gone for good
He smiles a lot, but laugh is vain
Hate is sweet, but love is good, is good.

Meetup

MEETUP

Why can’t you see me?
I sit here so close
Am I invisible?
Or merely a ghost?

A circle of nomads
A wandering tribe
We gather for game night 
To share a good vibe

The words that I utter
Those words which I groom
Leave me here idle
The lonely buffoon

The stroke of your hair
A touch of your hand
Might this be my path?
To the promised land

The sound of your voice
The timbre’s effect
I ask myself often
Might we connect?

I know that I’m lacking
In all that you yearn
How can I please you?
How can I learn?

Why can’t you see me?
I’m sitting quite near
Alas game night’s ending
Till next time my dear

Hanley

If I ever mock upon thoughts of a tie,
And if it ever it loosens, then I might deny
That every day were as great as the next
And every smile were dressed to impress.

I saw him last night in his pajamas,
Pining over drunken summers
Saying it's alright.
Well, it's not right
To call me up and ask for something
I can't give - I told him one thing -
It's alright;
Don't kill tonight,

As he sang:
Laura Lye,
Sweet Laura Lye,
Queen of Jameson,
Quervo dragon
Laura Lye,
Sweet Laura Lye
Won't you please pour a drink
For me.

With a tee and jeans he wears a tie,
passing on another lie
For my sense.
He prevents
My resistance toward nothing -
does nothing for nothing
In silence -
Immobile violence.

Now I'm singing:
Laura Lye,
Sweet Laura Lye,
Queen of James on
Drunken liaison.
Laura Lye,
Sweet Laura Lye
Won't you please kick James' ass
For me.

You know, I hate prying
But I think angels are dying
In sequence.
In confidence,
I excite the river's bend
When I think things are coming to an end.
I can't prevent

My Laura Lye.
Sweet Laura Lye,
I am dragging
My own sense of stagg'ring.
Laura Lye,
Sweet Laura Lye,
Won't you please just say something
To me.

THE REJECTION OF A FRIENDS LOVE

Why do I turn my friends away?
How come I never call?
Why is it that when they try to help,
I try my hardest to fall?
The confusion of my life,
has left me in so much pain.
When I think of a plan to succeed,
I tell myself  there is nothing to gain.
I show people that I'm happy.
But I'm really not.
All the people who have said they loved me,
in some way, I have fought.
Why is it that I resist them?
Why is it that I turn away?
Why do I turn down their help,
each and every day?
There is a reason that I do this,
why I stay a strayed.
It's because when I really need them,
they all run away.

Unread Questions

I want to be brave
I can't trail on...when you're gone (2)
Why are you gone?

Hey, I can't save...you from the sorrow - I can save you from the grave
Do you want me to grieve for you?
I can't hold on...when I have no hope - we must wait till the dawn
Where are they going?
Where have they gone? 
Why is this frustration growing? ooh...
Why’s the wind whispering in my ears?
How could I face my fears?

(ooh ooh) 
Do you want to be brave?
Do I have the ability to be brave?
You’re fighting back the tears…
I’m bottling up the fears
Why?
Why do you want this love to end up in the grave?
You’re regretting everything…
Why are you hard on yourself? 
I’m trying to forget that one thing…
Is it my fault your acting so strange?
Is it my fault that we have the problems spreading like cancer? 
Is it Satan's fault?
(Oooh… oooh…)

I want to be happy
Why aren't you happy?
I can’t feel my feet…when I feel so incomplete… (2)
Why do I feel this horrid feeling?
Hey now – I can’t hold you all throughout the night…I can’t set you free
I have my insecurities…I sometimes hope you’re doing great…it’s a treat
To finally know where you’re going…
But I still store up unanswered questions
They pass my train of thought
And then I fight it all away, but all for naught
What's the meaning of life?

I don't have the answers...
Do I search for clues?

The wind leaves my heart to beat… it’s still blowing…
Why’s your voice ringing in my head?
How could I go to bed?    

These questions
Are left on your desk like debt
Pay attention!! 
Are you answering my questions yet?

You're reply is naught......................
....................
............. 




Where have you gone now?

Fear of Free falling

Pounding against the shore
My heart beats 
Filling up my face, my hands, my cheeks with heat
Tears begin to role.
Tumbling down, like fireballs. 
Passionate …igniting, reviving as it goes
Why oh why! Am I at despair?
Vulnerable! Exposed! My heart stripped bare
An open book for you to read
Yet shaken up with despair I feel
The thunder of doubt begins to creep
Never have I embarked on this before
Yet unknowingly, deep down I yearn! I crave for more
A sea of contemplation, an abyss of hazy expectations
Pounding against the shore my heart beats
Filling my face, my cheeks, my hands…
As you go, with heat
Rising me to utmost crest 
Elevating higher then Mount Everest
Loving you more all the way
But yet! I dare not undrape my sentiments
For you, like others might not cradle them
For fear of freefalling
Yet….i hear your heart shrieking out my name 
Half shocked, half heart, I am to blame.

God's Still Looking Out For You

    GOD'S STILL LOOKING OUTFOR YOU
He still holds the key to your living day to day,
He still feels the pain of your sorrow.
He still has the love we all need along the way,
and He knows we've got to face tomorrow.
He still dresses lilies, and blesses fields with clover,
over in the meadow, where you used to roam,
don't you know He's never forgotton one lily,
in that place you used to call home.

He still helps you struggle with the load you must bear,
He still dresses lilies and clover.
He's still with you even when you think He's not there,
and even when you're thinking it's over.

Everything's alright, God's still looking out for you.
He still dresses lilies, and He's looking out for you.
Everything's alright, God's still there in His Heaven.
God's still looking out for you.

GIVE ME

I want to make sure I’m not falling on my face...
And I`m willing to go the distance
And I want to bring back good memories...
I want to make sure
You`re safe and you`re in a safe place

But GIVE ME some space
Sometimes, I wake up...feeling so distressed
But GIVE ME your sweet grace
And we'll beat the race...and this pain we share will not be addressed

I don't want to be unsure - am I the one losing the race?
And I'm chilling in this heavenly place
And I need to trade you my apologies…
I don’t want to waste your time
You’re absolutely safe…as long as you keep pace

Letter From A Friend

Dear Friend
Why you wondering where we stand? 
Me and you are tighter
Then the ying yang we make with our hands
I know we’re far apart
But a call brings us back together
No matter the hour of the day
And no matter the type of weather forever
But I’m glad
You came to me first
Each time I read your letter
It hurts me even worse
Because I see us more than friends
We’re bothers in the Lord
So if you are hurting
Then I am hurting even more
You can always count on me
When your world is going wrong
I will never turn my back on you
Even if my back is against the wall
And I know it’s not easy to tell our moms
When it’s hard for us to stand
What do they know about military life? 
Or the struggle for a military man? 
Don’t be shy
Because there’s something we all do fear
If I had the chance to switch services
You know I’ll be right there
And I am not brave
I wanna be the friend you can lean on
you said I can calm you down
well I also wanna keep you Army strong
death isn’t nothing
but the devil getting to you
keep believing in God
he will give a path to make it through dude
jus so you know
I’m here I’m always around
you’ve been trained good
so take a step back and calm down
and when you come home
we’re going to party like when we was kids
and laugh at all the stupid things
we ever did
keep your head up
because this is where it has to end
yours truly P.S.
you’re my number one friend

I Don't Want to Bleed

I Don't Want To Bleed

Written by D.W. Breidenthal (J. W. Earnings)

I don't wanna leave without you
I don't wanna lose my head...
I don't wanna bleed without you...
I want you to burn away my dread.... 

I can feel eyes on me...
And I'm reminded of past poverty
I start to bleed and heart pumps rapidly with anxiety

I can see you through the glass
I know our love will never last...
I can see you by my side in the reflection of the water
I can still sense your presence and you reflect my shameful past
That I would rather drop off at a nearby trash bin...but you are running too fast

And yet you still won't let go of our past sorrows and thoughtless decisions
I thought you had the balls to fulfill our desirable missions
I still see you in my dreams...
in my midnight visions

Our love was my drug and my heroin...but you gave in (to your heart's desire)
I was addicted to your blissful love...I was drunk off of the love Potion
'Cause you were my plastic admiration

I can see you in my dreams... sometimes it makes me feel so damn upset
'cause
I don't want to breath without you
I don't want to face my fear
I don't live ANYMORE
I don't want to leave you behind...I just don't wanna bleed again

I know our love was a temporary satisfaction..
I can see you by my side...every where I go. I have a feeling you are  not over me yet
I can still sense your presence and you reflect my wrong actions
I've committed in the past...but you ought to forgive me and give me one more chance

Skipping Stone

   SKIPPING STONE
In a constant lack of motion
but a reckless state of mind,
all you want is your seclusion
and a friend who's hard to find;
you've been looking through a window
at someone you never see,
never reaching for a reason
never thinking I'm just me.
As if you want to be alone.
Or just another skipping stone,
with somebody too well known.

In the hopeless life you're living,
there are friends who leave you cold,
it's a carousel you're riding,
and the song is getting old;
all the things you've held most dearly
come to nothing in the end,
and your search is overlooking
someone who's more than your friend.
Someone who'd be there when you cry.
Who'd never think of asking why,
who could help you learn to fly.

Living songs about confusion
like a puppet on a string,
one is pulled and your responding
is whatever pull should bring;
you will go in the direction
everyone says you should go,
and the person you are hiding
is someone you'll never know.
Out through the window is your friend.
From the beginning, to the end,
who will give, but never lend.

Pepper's Eyes

Stars that descend from the night skies
Amass, and prevail in Pepper's eyes
Her eyes are a phenomenon
They are like diamonds in the sun

Songs that make smiles and cries
Are songs about Pepper's eyes
A rainy day turn beautiful
A summer breeze that feels cool

One glimpse, and there's paradise
Of peace, love, and happiness in Pepper's eyes
An everlasting eclipse in motion
A brilliant sunset gleaming on the ocean

or the pain one suffers mentally 

I don't even know if people can see the truth
Or if they shut themselves out of the real and into the fake
We all know the fakness of what a human can put off
We all know the sickness one stores inside their skull
Can we all see what's going on? this day I see some that are still blind
 some that are so blind they can not imagine! 

The things one can do
The things one may hide

A life filled with questioning
A life full of hate and despair 
A life of several lies
A life with no reason of existing

A series of depression
A time of regret
A worry of fear 

A fear of ourselves 

An unwritten book with no pen to write with

Voice of reason

Lonely Soul

------------------------
 Dialog of 2 poets:
----------------------------------------
1. Lonely Soul
-----------------------------------

Between heaven and earth,

between summer and winter,

Lonely Soul rushed,

rustling her wings.

Up to the stars,

again downward

from eave to eave,

from window to window

and again, she is in flight.

The fires burn somewhere;

somewhere music and laughter,

someone’s joyful days

dazzling success and good luck.

Lonely Soul

has lost the way between the stars

in her long searches, all wet with tears.

Again, she hurries,

 there is neither a map nor way.

But she should SEARCH

and FIND, sometime!

Where?  Who?  And why?

She is my own soul,

which searches for my lost son.

                                   Dina Televitskaya 


        2. Sing, Wounded Soul!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


I cannot hold your cries,

 they slip through my fingers.

I cannot take away your pain,

it lies so far beyond my reach.

I cannot dig out your sorrow,

its roots are too deep.

I cannot chase away your fears,

they hide and creep out later.

I can only tell you, you are loved.

So, sing, wounded soul,

your tears do not fall into emptiness.


            James Dalton Byrd (American poet)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.Yes, I will sing again! 
-----------------------------------


Yes, I will sing again! 

Thanks for your advice, O my Friend! 

A song is a fine thing,  

You’re right: it is not the end! 



Hear? I already sing 

about the kisses of a rain, 

about green-eyed Spring, 

which gives the lilacs hope again.



I sing about your kindness and 

About force of friendship,

About meeting with you, my Friend 

Sometime, on poetic ship.
---------------------------------------
Dina Televitskaya

lonely walls


Big red heart,
Lonely walls.
Locked air spaced.

Seeing eye vision.
Memory’s gone.

Bright white light.
Forgotten all insight.

Poet Verses The World

I want love to reach
you,
Before words reach
my pen.
How mighty is this
quill,
If I've not won a
friend.

My mission was to
find you;
I've tried to put
you first.
Yet the only thing I
do,
Is pen another
verse.

Third

What's it take to get noticed?
Do I have to learn to speak another language?
Or maybe I have to cut out my heart and lay it on the ground for you!
You seem to think that every person in the world is better and more important that I am!
Rain check, I'm a part of who you are. Without me you're nothing but a short little thug
looking for true love.

The love that you always thought was there. That you thought would never criticize you in
any way possible.
Your heart shattered into fifty pieces.
At least it's not a cliche as a thousand or a hundred broken pieces.
It's an insurmountable amount of pain, being the third wheel of someone's life.
I know your name but do you know mine?
I'm that kid that seems to break your heart every time.
I don't know what to call myself because I've stayed too long in your mind and never in
your heart.
I've stayed too long in your love life now it's time to pack my bags and get out.
Throw up my deuces.
You know what that means don't you?
I'm not gonna be picking up my phone now and next time if we ever meet, I'm not gonna be
the one to bleed nor will I leave with a broken heart.
Just me and my fists, cutting through the line and breaking down the tension.

Faith Healer

The odor is intolerable
Like a foul beast clinging to the end 
I can barely subdue its subterfuge 
But here I am, 
I’m standing here of sound and mind
Waiting for the time that answers my own questions

Can it race with the fires of Orc?
Doubtful, but it can jog steadily can’t it?
The weather is awful, filled with sounds
Penetrating a document not written
It pains me to fight through the night
Not because it’s dark, but because I am just a shadow.

Lester drives but
Motional lasts forever
Still driving
Still crying
And slowly dying as time waves on
Like oceans that can’t be seen.

Nobody cares and everyone listens
Ironic, like a bible that holds lies and deception
Can its will be pierced?
Can freedom stay free?
Is it worth it to stay hooked when everyone around
Seeks liberty?

MELLOW NOON

days of benign stealth
lawns, gardens, orchards drink to my health
the road's been unkind
well it's gone, it's flowed on behind

let me recline in this boon
mellow noon
the bell might ring
spiteful and soon

days of serene sloth
cirri bind the sky in strips of clean cloth
and they barely support its weight of light
and i circle my core like a moth

tell me whose darned flitting hand
lit this little burner just below my head
that it moves higher up with each sandbag shed
and i never knew how far my land spread

now i long for something to make
now i ache for something to wield
earthbound and sunbaked
like a worker in the field

Euphorianah

The sapphire-dust sun of what-were dreams
Swallow the scene, setting In the forsaken east
All I see, all I know fades into the reaper's monotone grey 
Death come near me, by my only choice 
My wintry desperation subdued, clings to they silent voice
The dusk reveals my truest nature before her blank argentine eyes
Life; the darkest of all tragedies, Romances' malady
Let me feel your breath in this frozen air
Your pulse shorter than ever
Despair's void grows inside me
Without, you I will live no longer

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

The winterwinds' tears fall on me
With whispers of you, someone I once knew
No matter in a dream or reality
Sweet tranquillity, stay with me
Calming the fears within
But the pain remains

The silvemoon's fears shine on you
Thine eyes search for mine
Oh how they shine, so deathly blue
If sacrifice needs a price
The dagger shows-
Heaven is calling us tonight

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

Covered in shadowy illusions 
Shall we dance?
Death will be lie dominion
You are my only queen
Euphorianah

Forever with me you will stay
The darkness caressing means as I lay by thy grave 
Hatred no longer exits
Come back to me
Euphorianah

My Angel, why did you fly so far away
My Angel, let just one feather stay
My Angel has flown away

Just let me die
If I cannot see
Euphorianah 
This night

Dear Seth

Dear Seth,
Still one more year to go because
you let things get to your head.
I know you’re trying to overcome this,
but this negativity I cannot bed.

And all the kings horses
And all the kings men
Couldn’t put your head
Back together again

If roses are red
And violets are blue
Exactly how sweet is the
Sugar I gave to you?

Dear Seth,
Things are getting rough again.
Time is going by so slow and
I’m only receiving more sad news.
It seems you’re clipping your own wings.
Your freedom you have sold.

But if Adam and Eve were meant to be
Why do I feel like Eve and you the snake?
You have fed me your poison, which
I am no longer tempted to take

If that mocking bird don’t sing
Then I’ll know I can’t change a thing
Hush baby now don’t you cry
Everything should be alright

Dear Seth,
The days are dragging by, but it
seems there is no reason for this.
There is no support left to hold.
Not even when I think how much of you I love and miss.

And all the kings horses
And all the kings men
Can never put my heart
Back together again

If roses are red
And violets are blue
Why has this sugar
Turned as bitter as you?

Dear Seth,
The day you are released from
these bars will never come.
You will always be trapped inside
for it seems now, two is lonelier than one.

But if Adam and Eve were meant to be,
With me Eve, why did you choose to be the snake?
You keep drinking the poison you find,
And the poison that you make

Not once have I heard that mocking bird sing
I know now what I did, didn’t change a thing
Hush now, don’t be so loud when you cry
Everything was supposed to be alright

Umid

Umidin topragi  sevgi
Ofkem olsa  gozyasi
Tufan  olsa sondurse
Bitmeyen yanginini anilarin

Umidim sevginin atesi
Hikayesi anlatmakla  bitmez
Uyanirim kaygilanirima
Duslerim seni her gece 

Korkmadan yilmadan
Dusunurum yolunu
Duydukca adini uzaktan
Aglar yanarim her gece

Dalgalar ve ruzgarlar 
Ve bitmeyen yagmurlar
Yine kosarim umide
Nefesim aglatir beni
Dogarim yeniden umide

Umidin hayalinde sensiz
Yasarim gunahlarimi
Sesizligin olumunde
Sensiz her gece 

Kul olan agacim yeserse

     BIPOLAR
Sometimes I can feel a magic like I've never known.
I could run a thousand miles. Run a thousand miles.
Sometimes it's more like I'm dying here all alone.
Sometimes I think I'll die alone.

Sometimes I can reach out for you, but you're made of stone.
I could die a thousand times. Die a thousand times.
Sometimes it's more like you're showing me I'm not alone.
Sometimes I think I'm not alone.

Euphoria. Up and down. In and out.
Up and down. Euphoria.

Sometimes I can feel a magic like you've never known.
I could run a thousand miles. Run a thousand miles.
Sometimes it's more like you're showing me I'm not alone.
Sometimes I think I'm not along.

Up and down. In and out.
Up and down. In and out.
Euphoria. Then I'm down. Down. Down.
Euphoria. Then I'm down. Down. Down.

Mem'ry Tea

I spent some time with you today
Although you're many miles away;
I brewed a pot of mem'ry tea
And drank it all, down to the leaves.
I did not find the future there;
The past rose up, a fog of tears,
A misty bank of treasured dreams,
Elusive joys on widespread wings.
You are so much a part of me!
I've brewed too strong this mem'ry tea,
Intoxicating as fine wine,
Long aged within this heart of mine.

June 23rd

Am I waiting for you or destiny?
You fell into my hands once but I let you slip away.
On June 23rd you didn’t say a word, but I guess it started before my mind could grasp reality.
What was I thinking? Maybe I wasn’t thinking at all.
I looked at you with a face full of shame or…was it embarrassment?
I can’t remember what I was I feeling or what I was looking at.
Was it you or someone else who devoured my ability to talk?
I stood there. Isolated from the world as if I were some crazy lunatic holding a gun in my hand.
Why was I here?
I didn’t need to be next to her or in the same room as her.
She breathed down my neck or was it just the wind?
My teacher began with a monotonous voice.
“First five seats of every row are to be filled.”
My heart became heavy like an anchor.
I blocked the sounds that came from her mouth, until I heard “John.”
I knew who was next… I just hoped that she wouldn’t continue her protest but time went by and not a single word or good-bye.
I guess that day really was the end of my smooth stainless literature.

THE MUSE OF YOU

   THE MUSE OF YOU
Through all of time and all of space,
and following into the chase
but never catching what I've seen
nor even knowing what I mean
it's not a thing my mind can place.

Your eyes, so deep, I never know
where you might lead, where I must go,
but there I find what I must write
the words, though sometime seeming trite,
and from your eyes they have to flow.

No less than what is meant to be
the Muse of you carresses me;
I wonder is this love or not,
or something else, but don't know what,
and I must follow what I see.

Forever summer rain will fall
into my life, and love is all
there is to be my wordly guide;
between each line is where I hide,
if I do less, then I have lied.

And so the truth I have to show,
revealing what I never know,
but wonder at, as words come on
out of your eyes, where I have gone,
and been where I should never go.

Triple Decastich-SEVEN DAYS DOING GOOD DEEDS

If I had seven days,
I'd feed the hungry...
give milk formulas
to the needy mothers
of the suckling babies
who can't be breast-fed;
what a big smile I'd put
on every infant's face!
And from within, I'd certainly
feel a joy never experienced before!


I wouldn't stop there,
I'd continue searching for them...
for those children who ask for bread,
and a bottle of spring water...
if I were the Pope, I'd sell all the gold
in Vatican City and make them full,
hoping that others will follow his example!
Why do they have to die uselessly;
has society turned away 
from human compassion? 


If I had seven days
to do as I please, I would be
an ambassador for peace,
stop the violence which causes wars
by asking nations to come together and negotiate...
I would be much delighted to see them shake hands!
Some will listen, some will not
and despite their negative reaction,
I will try to convince them with an imposing voice
that they will be sorry for the destruction which will come!

Just A Fool

I'm just a fool who writes words on a page
and dreams of singing on a stage
but to no avail
someday I'll set sail
and yet- he stares at me
like everything's a freakin' fantasy
and I am left with this aching in my heart
Cause I know I'll tear him apart
Why do you do this to me?
This isn't an everyday fantasy
Stop pretending we could've been together long
For you and I- we don't belong

Now I feel like I'm ranting to nobody
A whispering to an evergreen tree
that doesn't know my name
or from where I came
and yet- something peaceful stirs
among the 'pokies' and sticky burrs
happy memories that even now can make me smile
and let me hold on to him for awhile
Oh why do I have to be this way?
I should've moved on to a brighter day
I need to stop pretending my life is full of misery
I know you're stronger than me

A Fair Advice

The advice of a faithful friend
May save you from torturing end
But this did not happen to the donkey
Who ignored this perfect key

He lived with a farmer in a village
Lean, weak and very old in age
The whole day long he worked for his master
But in the night he let him loose to wander

One night he in the jungle street
He, to a jackal, happened to meet
To follow a friendship Both agreed
And set out to find some feed

Got into a large farm of cucumbers
Gladly filled their empty chambers
Now it was their repeated action every might
And soon the donkey gathered fat and might

One cool night Uncle donkey was too glad 
And wished to sing a beautiful ballad
Nephew jackal warned not to sing any song
For it might awaken the farmer for a wrong

But uncle’s musical soul was eager
So the jackal left him there to be  singer
Laying in the field, uncle brayed with might
And the harsh notes awakened the night

Farmers with heavy clubs rushed to the thief
And thrashed the donkey without a brief
Anyhow laming and murmuring came out he with price
Repenting not to follow a true friend’s advice

The Fisherman

Written January 17, 2011


Sit down in an empty room
No one makes a sound
Unless I ring the alarm and sound all the sirens
The angel of darkness swoons to reel in its catch
If he leads, then I'll follow suit
Preacher preach to me now, while I'm being lifted off of the ground

Rhetoric can't raise the dead
So pull me back before he reels me in with steady hands and fills my mind with lead
I'll leave my best regards to all of those who tried to snap his line in attempts to reel me back
But friends are only friends

You can throw me in an ambulance but as soon as you close the doors
I'll be gone into the weight of my regrets
Following the angel of death into the darkest depths
Until I see the light of all that's left

But at what point do I cross the line in the sand?
How do I know that this could just be the roll of the tide whispering in my ear?
Oh how it digs into my mind
Torn between which side of brightness I will find

Split between the bony hand of disconnect and the flabby flesh of past regret
There I remain waiting for a miracle, looking for a sign
Or am I too far for miracles, am I too blind for signs?
Oh have I let the artist down?

Words Unspoken

If I could see you now, I'd want to say;
How much I love and miss you each day.
People conspire to keep us apart,
But no matter what, you'll always be in my heart.
Words can't explain how I feel.
You brought me to life...you made me real.
I love you so much, and want to say,
That having you as a friend is what makes my day.

This Christmas

Wow another year has come and gone 
What a year it has been
So many things we wouldn’t change,
yet so many we would
As the new year approaches we all will set goals for ourselves 
and our family’s too
As we do this let us remember the true meaning of Christmas
Let us not forget that if it wert for Our Lord Jesus Christ we wouldn’t be blest with the many 
things we have today
So with this let us celebrate the ultimate birth, the birth of Gods sun
Let us all decorate with bright vibrant coolers, sing his praises and give of ourselves in his 
honor   
Let us all stop, be still and think of those not with there family’s this year
Let us open or hearts to those less fortunate than us
Let us all say a prayer for our neighbors, family, and friends for there safety in the coming 
year
As we go forth in the following year let us all carry Gods love and pass it around to each and 
every one we meet

It Can't Last Forever

Why won’t my memory of you fade?
You always said you had my back, but at what cost?
The bullet wound through your chest tells me where we stand-in the middle of a bloody 
gang war.
Surrounded by blood and innocent bodies.
I bet I can count the total amount, give me a sec.
3,  15,  50,  200 dead bodies on the ground floor.
What ever happened to our dreams-living the millionaire dollar life, when all we have is 
thirty cents in our back pocket?
We stood together ‘till the end, but what now?
I really don’t want to get shot.
At least not like you did-by your own girl who just happened to be in a gang war.
We knew our luck wouldn’t last forever, chasing and snatching dreams with no failures.
Even now,
as I see you on the ground, as I hear the gun shots, as I see bodies falling, I can safely 
say “We’re the luckiest people alive.”

Blonde 'beauty'

no pun no pun no pun
well he says that i have won
does he see my hair in the sun?
it defines who really has won

it's him it's him it's him
he's getting over the stretch i can't swim
and as the lights are getting dim
my hair sullenly needs a trim

He smiles he smiles he smiles
and stares at me all the while
but as i fall down to the tile
it becomes my hardest trial

i cry i cry i cry
because i know i've told a lie
and my life has passed me by
when i caught myself in his eye

I run i run i run
because he thinks that i have won
this hair so blonde in the sun
reflects the fact that i am done

Climb out of this hole Stop hurting yourself Fix your sad soul Look at this mess you've made Was it really worth The pain you payed Just for such A vapid Touch One more One more touch Dig up stupid Don't try and right the wrong The damage is done Silence the song You can't run From a list so long The eyes are watching The diverse Became the same Why can't I keep my hands from latching Onto what was never mine? Look at this mess you've made Was it really worth The pain you payed Just for such A vapid Touch One more One more touch Dig up stupid Dig up

Unexpected Heaven

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Black and white, it was all I saw
Everywhere I turned, everywhere I went
Ice covered everything, too thick to ever thaw

I couldn't see in front of me,
I couldn't find solid ground,
My world was crashing down around me,
Any cries of help dying without a sound.

So much time had gone by
And I was slowly drifting
Too much time had gone by
And I was slowly fading

But then you came to me, so unexpectedly,
I couldn't see a thing
You offered me, such a sweet reality,
I wondered if I was dreaming
You took my hand, made me understand
the truth among the lies
And wrapped in you, so safe and sound
An unexpected heaven is what I found

You were everything to me,
my feet were finally on the ground,
the world kept spinning quickly,
but in your arms I stayed as it all crashed down

So much time has gone by
And I'm slowly seeing
Too little time has gone by
For me to rid of this feeling

And then you came to me, so unexpectedly,
I couldn't see a thing
You offered me, such a sweet reality,
I wondered if I was dreaming
You took my hand, made me understand
the truth among the lies
And wrapped in you, so safe and sound
An unexpected heaven is what I found

Bright and true, I saw it in you
Life and love, I had found it all
A fairytale ending, it was in my sights
All because of you, my unexpected knight

And then you came to me, so unexpectedly,
I couldn't see a thing
You offered me, such a sweet reality,
I wondered if I was dreaming
You took my hand, made me understand
the truth among the lies
And wrapped in you, so safe and sound
An unexpected heaven is what I found

And wrapped up in you, so safe and sound
Happiness is what I gained
An unexpected heaven, is what I found

Letting My Hair Down

Settling down with a real good book
All safe and warm inside my reading nook

Watching time go by 
As well told stories arise

Tales of dragons lives
Heroes live and die
 
All in one simple look
Maidens love and cry

All here with-in a sigh
I laugh as I day dream about the time I took

I Know This Is Paradise

I know this is paradise
The moon light beats upon the
Window pane and as it does
Reflects the hectic, frantic
Mood of this part of my life.
Bouncing back off reflections
Show the mayhem that swallows
Us whole as we spin madly
Drinking more drunker, drunker
Falling back into darkness
To be absorbed by it all

I know this is paradise,
The morning after. Headaches,
Tired limbs, weary faces
But still jokes roll off our tongues
Reliving and discussing
All the infrequent interests
That tend to break their cover
And surface during such nights      

I know this is paradise
Even in my lowest hour
mid-night but to long past twelve
early into the morning
a break of pace, contemplate
What other things could have been
Though they’re beyond your control

I know this is paradise
I’m surrounded by those I love

A time when you could eat the sun

The trees are made of feathers and sticks
The sun is made of golden cheese
The moon was made of whipped cream
A place where the water was made out of blue Kool- Aid
The grass was made of gummy green strings
There was no houses and no place to hide
A place where a boy ate the sun
A place where the Moon swalloed up the world
A tragedy that melted and turned to liquid
No one could swim in the sea
No one could tan underneath the branches
A world where time stood still and the hours were long
A place where humans never existed

"Please Try to Go Beyond Earth Hour"
Treat earth like something you imagined when you were a kid a place where these things happened and you could be safe. Pick up your trash and clean up your yard! after all this is your world too :)!

7 years of a decade

It was my first day of summer school
I dipped out and said "i don't know how to lose"
Time passed fast
And i'm quite sure i failed to last
So welcome back to the one-way road

The summer i met Vicki Marie
told me if there's one thing she'd change
It'd be my way of thinking
Living so carefree
I can't turn back or keep from sinking

Brandon played and ripped that guitar
Madison said we wouldn't get far
Everyone else said "you don't know who you are"
Taking shots down at the local bar
The riots outside the Dejavu
Holly's telling me "I miss you too"

said you were my brother
We'd be friends forever
I can't tell you howmany times 
I think back on those days

But i wouldn't change a thing
I would've fought a little harder
Two for one at the local pub
I don't wanna die a martyr
when things fall apart
you got to try a little harder

If i could go back i wouldn't change a thing
Even if it wasn't meant to be
She said, "hey dude
you guys are living so carefree
I too, want to have the time of my life"

never forget 9-11

On that day we were all the same, we didn't know there faces, we didn't know 
there names.
There voices we heard crying all around the world, someones loving father, 
someones little girl.
On that day we were called to lead a better life, for that someones father, for that 
someones wife.
The list of souls read from above before it came below why it was and why it is the 
answer no one knows.
Through the pain we have learned lessons great and small, life, love, and happiness 
are precious cherish them all.
With grace we all go on, but never will we forget that all of these beautiful things 
can fade so very quick.
On that day we wondered, on that day we cryed, on that day we asked ourselves 
what kind of man am I?
Mothers held there children for so long and oh so tight, why did these people have 
to go this was not there fight.
We hope and pray for all those names, and the ones they left behind they gave 
their life for a question the answer we must find.

Hues Of Our Lives

Celebration is our nature 
A distinction of pleasure 
Activities of leisure 
In a full count of measure. 

Everybody is celebrating 
With nobody distracting 
For everyone is understanding 
So no one is obstructing. 

Gathered in the neighbourhood 
with a true spirit of brotherhood 
In tune with our adulthood 
Memories of our childhood. 

In our way our brother's keepers 
In no way our brother's killers 
In time of joy the hailers 
In time of sorrow the wailers. 

Togetherness our culture 
In oneness our structure 
Fabrique of our love won't puncture 
The goodness of life shall we capture.

Are There Any Exceptions

Tell me- are there any other rules for love I haven't tried yet?
I saw you up in Heaven or were you just flying around trying to seduce me?
Can Heaven really wait?
I'm outside waiting for you.
To tell you the truth, I'll wait forever or at least until my heart breaks.
Are we just going to be close friends for eternity?
Look at me! Girl I'm on my knees!
You know you can count on me for anything and everything that doesn't involve drugs or murder.
I'll follow- you just lead.
Lead me to the life I was supposed to inherit when I heard your angelic voice.
Let me fall into your soft arms once again, but not as friends.

Monster

My rage builds up inside
This is the face that cried
The body that died

The world that has no more space
This is the hand that bruised your face
The blood I taste

The depression deep inside my soul
These are the hands that are so cold
The hate that can't unfold

The life placed upon Thee'
These are the eyes that cannot see
The things that should not be

The shame that was placed
This is the mistake that cannot be erased
The time we have left to chase

The words that were spoken too clear
These are the ears that cannot hear
The friend who is no longer near

Orpheus My Valentine Not Dead

Last night I believed I saw three Witch Beings 
relent and cast down from winter moon 
Orpheus, free riding.  

Happy all with his magical lyre.
Not in bereavements of old, 
no traps and lures set with crying, 
he called to me.

His sun-gold limbs were elegant intact.
Feet swift where night wind took him.
Blood red were his cheeks and marked,
telling where he’d been.

By fate or by plan that night he came
into my darkened room, my bed.
His whispered song tenderly to hold me.
Orpheus, my valentine, not dead.

In This Room Painted Black

We layed in that bed.
We told jokes and stories from when we were younger.
There in that room painted black.
We'd stay up all night long telling jokes and funny tid bits.
And laugh loud enough to wake the whole house.
We were inseperable, invincible to the world that surrounded us.
Because me and you were so locked tight.
You were my one and only friend, my confident.
The only person I could tell anything and everything to,
as I was to you.
I miss your impressions of other people.
I miss the way you'd laugh.
I miss the ditzy things you would say.
But thats all changed now.
Because you aren't here anymore.
There are no more jokes.
And no more stories from our past.
We don't stay up all night together like we used to,
and the laugher is just an echo in my sweet memories of us.
Us when we were inseperable, invincible to the world that surrounded us.
We aren't locked tight like we used to be.
I miss my one and only best friend, my confident.
The only person i could tell anything and everything to.
As I lay in this bed.
In this room painted black.

Switch

Glide Slide Through the maze Fake For my sake To keep you distantly near Take This silent token Do not worry I am not broken I'm left with the sea green lake Tangled in my heart I am not sorry One Two Three Switch To keep you Close To keep you Far Hope That one day It will be the same But The two fold rope Tattered it lay Only playing the game Fear Taking over I beg please My dear Don't let it shatter Run Done For the sun I am the fool Who breaks the rules For a moment of fresh air Just to keep you close Just to keep you near So you can slip away

Your Smile

It’s not what I want, It’s what I need
It’s not who I love, It’s who loves me
I can’t control every little thing
So you’ll just have to bear with me

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

Life isn’t always easy
I know 
But we can make it through 
Together
It’s true
And I need you by my side 
And you know you need me too
So just stay with me 
And we’ll show the world what we can do

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

You think you are too strong
And when life comes along
I just need you to believe
That you can lean on me
And I’ll return the favor 
When the time comes along 

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

Bed Business Betrayal

You were everything I prayed against you to be.
You peddled your rhymes on Friday nights,
You sold your soul and your creative rights.
But the only one who saw the change was me. 

I feel your grip loosen and you’ve started to slip,
They consume you in the midnight hour,
Your dirty knees show that you’ve lost all power.
But I still reach out, I can see through your quip.

Your betrayal has now climaxed, and to it’s easiness you heed.
Your eyes can see only hatred and pain,
So as their whore you will forever remain.
But my eyes see the everlasting promise, the one you didn’t need.

The Class of 1956

Some promptly left and didn't return,
Some chose to stay with concern showing.
For a finer life perhaps the first did yearn,
All building lives as families were growing.

While additional left and later moved back,
Renewing friendships, letting memories churn.
Having tasted life the other side of the track,
Sporadically, for School Reunions, others return.

We've now grown older and some have passed,
We now have fewer possessive things to crave.
Our hair is graying and our eyes are glassed,
As our steps grow slower this side of the grave.

But we've lived life by no means just half way,
Wherever we've been we remained in God's sight.
For without His grace what would we be today,
Just old Haskell Haymakers but still in the fight.

THE DREAMER WHO FOLLOWS THE STARS

Sitting on a smooth rock
as waves crash into it...foaming,
and splashing their salty water on me;
it is warm and soothing after burning
on dunes of sand...listening to rock,
and one of the songs caught my fancy...

The dreamer who follows the stars
is an unloved soul running from time,    
searching for secrets in this Universe...
but finding only sympathy for himself;
he can see the sea-birds in flight,
and wishes more peace at every sunset!  

This pen dashes all thoughts off,
to relieve this mind of unwanted clutter,
clearly seeing beyond the noiseless shore;
and like survivors of a shipwreck:
I let out a deep breath, to feel life 
at its best ,and joyfully play my clarinet...

The dreamer who follows the stars
 loses their traces into space,
they go further and further and disappear from his sight;
he counted them all when they stood still and shone
above the ragged canyons of a dreary moon in silverlight, 
and how can he hope for their return and not dream alone?  

Fugitive darkness gives away to dazzling sun-rays,
the shrills of the gathered sea-gulls, by the beach-house,
bring me back to an existence of joyful laughs; 
I am repulsively sad to have fallen into sleep,
to have missed moments that could have inspired, indeed,
another song for the dreamer who followed the stars!


Details | Lyric | |

I want to help!

      I know the burning rage,
I feel trapped, as if in a cage.
There's nothing I can do, 
I wish I could stop you.
You've put others on a shelf.
You try to solve your problems yourself.
You grab something sharp and start to cut,
girl, you ain't in that big a rut.
Why are you doing this, tell me please!?
I'm your friend, your pain, I will ease. 
I will wait until the end of time.
I'll take your problem, and make it mine.






  (This poem was written for a friend)

A simple Thanks

One that tells how your time and
effort means so much to all of us
One that says the time we shared wouldn't
have been the same without your touch 
So thank you for all you have done
And all you do every day of the year
Thank You!

YOURS...IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE

Yours..is the most beautiful smile,
the source of all my inspirations;
that star never fading, always outshining others...


And from it joy is emanated;
with the speed of a shooting star,
to earth it falls, for me to catch it without harm...



Mona Lisa may have the most perfect smile,
but yours is the densest and fondest;
so fresh and alive...a blooming flower awaiting light...   



The Italian Renaissance's painters and poets could not have imagined
a beauty so delicate, inspiring and pure existing in my time;
Dante's passion for Beatrice turning into deprivation and desire...



What my vision beholds is unexplainably mysterious and yet simple,
purity and innocence reflecting your soul's mirror to make me gaze deeper;
entrust all your thoughts and feelings to me, and I will be your keeper... 



Yours...is the rarest and most attractive smile,
and on it unblemished love can be built, a fortress outlasting time;
unafraid, share it with me to explore the wonders of this universe...

The Search

I went to the valley lookin' for a dime
a nickel's all I found baby ain't it a crime
I went to the valley hopin' I'd find you
I hoped you'd find me too

I went to the river lookin' for a name
a mirror's all I found baby this ain't a game
one time a devil two times a sin
I hope you'll let me in

Woke from a dream I didn't have no place
cool wind vanished without a trace
life went and played me for a fool
that's why I need you

I went to the fact'ry lookin' for some yarn
'fore I knew it I was ripped and torn
tied up in tragedy but don't feel no pain
I got your blood in my veins

I went to to the valley lookin' for a dime
a nickel's all I found baby ain't it a crime
I went to the valley without a clue
I'm so happy I found you

Cry (Don't say those words)

Why did it had to happen this way
The world was blinded with my tears
I saw you in my hands
Just to let you know, my friend,
I am here

And I cry alone in the darkness
Where no one cares how I felt
And I saw you struuggling
You are not going through this yourself

You talked about your death and all
But I don't want it to be true
I just want to hear your words
That mean most to you

Oh, and I cry in this empty space
A place of an empty world
You are not alone, no you are not
I am here, in your world

Please help me,
I am crying!
I am listening to your scream!
Don't let me stay in this nightmare!
Wake me up
From this dream!

My tears, they are my worries to you
I am so scared when you said those words
Don't want to let you go
Don't want you to feel so hurt

I am crying!
Oh God!!
I am screaming!
For your Help!
Oh, no no!
Don't let this happen again!!
No No!!

I am walking the streets of this lonely space
No human have walked on a wrecked emotional state before
And my tears fall onto my weakened face
I am opening myself up to you before I fall!

I care!!
And I cry !!
Don't say those words!!
I want to cry louder
Just more louder!

And I cry alone in here
I am crying by my shaking fears
I am in the dark of the alternate reality
This is where I should be
Just a hand I am giving it to you
Please, take it
I am your life
I just hope you will hear
My thousand tears
Of my cry

My Best Friends

They are the ones that I met
They are the ones that I have found
They are still here and I am Glad
Because I would never want to go down

They are the laughters and smiles
They are the sky and the sun
They are the ocean and wind
They are the only ones

They are my best Friends
They are the people who I hang on to
They are my best Friends
We are not just some bunch of Fools

Susan is feminine but she's the daisies in spring
Her eyes sparkled and she is strong in what she thinks

Mat is a flirt but he is the joker of the group
He never likes girls to treat him some kind of a fool

Susan loves fashion designs and talks like any other girl
Mat loves himself to flirt with the girls around the world

And I dont care for what they are
And I am just glad that these are the people that made me come this far
And I would not make a mistake in pulling ourselves apart
We will keep ourselves in daylight when we beginning to feel the dark

And I love them more than everyone can see
They feel like they are more than just a family

Because they are all i have in me

All I Have in me..

Danced Night Away

Never spoke before
I liked you
From the first moment
I saw your eyes
Shy smile
Beautiful long hair
So many times
I wanted to talk to you
But I wouldn’t dare
And then just one cigarette
Changed it all
Made my fear to go
Away
Like a dream
Standing next to me
Nothing more to wish
Nothing else exist
Just music
Sweet white wine
You
And me
Dancing

I'm Sorry

You used to call me by my nickname, now you don't call at all.
I know I made the first move, but it was the only move.
In my mind I told you I'd be back in three seconds...guess I counted wrong.
It's been three months since our fight, can you please just talk to me?
My life's gone through too many tunnels to count.
How did I break your heart, how am I to blame, why am I not ashamed?
You're one of a kind and yet you changed because of what I did?
I'm sorry for the trillionth time!
Just forgive me already!
My past doesn't want to come back, so stop trying to make me feel like a jerk.
I didn't dump you, it was all a little argument!
I miss you. The old you!
I'll never get to see her again!
Thanks a lot inner demons of John Monteblanco.

What is love

Is love a feeling trapped deep inside 
that any painful moment can cause you to cry
Is love an infatuation with the opposite sex
feeling you must always be at your very best

Is love a thought, action, or deed
grown in the heart from the planting of a seed
for what is love but a single notion
that drives the heart with many emotions

Is love the warmth beneath a gentle breath
that sends uncontrollable chills down the back of your neck
Is love the desire behind a stare that leaves you in a daze
hypnotize by lust struck within its gaze

Is love the security felt from a strong embrace
or the steady soft caress of a hand upon your face
is love missing someone when they've gone on a long trip
or the heated passion of a slow kiss upon your lips

Is love merely knowing someone will always be there
just knowing your heart and life will always be shared

Than him

I'm weaker than you
It's always been true
you don't need me, cause i'll be the end of you

I don't mean to be useless, I don't mean to be sad
but things come along, and they're always so bad
that i latch onto you, you make me feel loved
with you i am something, when i'm touched, when i'm hugged
and i know that sometimes i make you mad

but I promise to be better, i know I'm a fool
but every time I look at you, I've jumped into a pool
of water that drowns my lungs out, 
I can't breathe when I see your eyes
I want to scream, i wanna shout
I wanna be your prize

But i'm weaker than you, I'm only a fool
just a fool who does nothing but write
useless, uncaring, so selfish and vain
he leads me back into the light

Operation: Christmas Child

Sounds of children laughing
Singing and having a good time
Is almost like a fairy-tale
But this time, it's mine.
The little ones are laughing and smiling
Almost as hard as the youth do
Together, we know we'll make a difference
One little kid's dream will come true.
We're doing something special for the world
So others can live with love
So we are giving just a few boxes of stuff
Almost like a little treasure trove.
Operation:Christmas Child
How it brings smiles to my eyes
To see all this hard work
To help a few little lives.
Bailey comes and takes my hand,
"Kristen, come here and see!
We've wrapped boxes full of toys
For little children like me!"
Given so unselfishly, 
These children donate so much
Not only gifts, but unconditional love
A hug and a warm touch.
We stuff the boxes full of toys
And wrap them one by one
Soon, we have finished
All the boxes are done.
But we don't want to leave yet
We're having so much fun
So we hold hands and begin to sing
Our voices blending to become one.
We sing together for a while
Then we must break up to go home
But we know we'll still be there
And our voices will carry on.
So I go to bed this night
With happy tears in my eyes
Grateful for Operation:Christmas Child
That boosts so many little lives.

Believing in You

To learn from the needy,
To care for the strong,
To reach for the heavens,
Where we all belong.

To climb every mountain,
Atop every hill,
To find out my purpose,
The good Father's will.

To fly like an angel,
From pond to lakeshore,
To venture the valleys,
Seen never before.

To swim through the  waters,
Of sparkling streams,
To soar through the vast clouds,
Of peace and of dreams.

To travel off Earth,
To a place quite unknown,
To witness my eyes,
Where the birds have not flown.

A place that is fruitful,
WIth flowers and trees,
With fresh air and water,
A song in the breeze.

And last but not least,
With my kind, loving friends,
A pastime, a party,
Where peace never ends.

To make all this happen,
Seems like such a chore,
But that what beliefs, and our dreams
Were made for.

Save Me From Desperation

My golden one you're burning out of sight
I try to follow your light
This darkness pulls and pushes me away
But our love will never wane
Despite all of the pain

You rapture me from my own mind
When the razor calls me back
Tell me these are all just lies
Only illusions from my mind 

Deterring the pain away
I'm with you
There's nothing more to say

Paradise is mine 
You Save me from desperation
And I will fulfill all of your adorations
You save me from desperation
Nobody is in vain
Though my life lived a lie
You save me from desperation

Our starcrossed world 
Destroyed by the ones who run from reality
Condemn us you may
But love will always find it's way
You're worth it to be called mine
Evenour bond is crime

Begin the decay
There's no more to say
Eden's Heart separated us from the start
You're all I need to be free
Nobody is in vain
So you found my meaning

(chorus)
Deterring the pain away
I'm with you
There's nothing more to say

Paradise is mine 
You Save me from desperation
And I will fulfill all of your adorations
You save me from desperation
Nobody is in vain
Though my life lived a lie
You save me from desperation

Advocate Angel from above
I put my heart in your hands
I've fallen too deep
A way to fulfill our love is what I seek

I'm suffering, dying, trying
To live but there's no life
Without you 

Deterring the pain away
I'm with you
There's nothing more to say

Paradise is mine 
You Save me from desperation
And I will fulfill all of your adorations
You save me from desperation
Nobody is in vain
Though my life lived a lie
You save me from desperation

Major Mistake

My life consists of sitting around
And I take back one step , take back two
And now I’m out the door, yeah
Everybody says, everybody says
Its only on the weekends.
And I say..

By far this is the best
Please sir, can you tell me how you made this
Please tell me the recipe, the recipe
Because..
Everybody knows who they want to spend their nights with
And I don’t know who I want to spend my life with.

Make Yourself at Home in my Heart

The other day I was talking with you 

You're so easy to talk to

we discuss our points of view

and all the stuff that we've been through


I'm in love with love they say

sure I'm searching everyday 

I hope you can come out and play

cause there's something that I hope you can do


You can make yourself at home in my heart

there's an empty place your welcome to fill

it doesn't matter that we're so far apart

You don't have to, but I hope you will

make yourself at home

in my heart


Lady how the time does fly

I know you're crazy and so am I

some day we might give us a try

but for now, let's watch the world go by

I bet if I could be with you

a lot of things would feel brand new

I bet there would be laughter too

and we would never want to die 


If you could make yourself at home in my heart

There's an empty place I want you to fill

it don't matter if we're light years apart

You don't have to but I hope you will

make yourself at home

in my heart


I see no need now to be coy

I know I'm acting like a little boy

You don't know how much I enjoy

every minute that goes by


When you share your words with mine

feels like things will work out fine

I hope that I'm not out of line

If I come right out and say


You can make yourself at home in my heart

there's an empty place you're welcome to fill

doesn't matter that we're so far apart

You don't have to, but I hope you will

Just make yourself at home

in my heart

You'll never be alone

in my heart

You didn't Realize It

The place to be can be called my home.
Shall you take my hand or shall I take yours?
You stabbed me in the heart but you never realized it.

An olive and an arrow to show me your love...why isn't it here yet?
Can you tell me how many children we're gonna have?
Can I tell you anything as if you were my little sister, Jennifer?

Please return my heart.
I need it so I can move on but you're always in the back of my head.
You're all I ever think about, you're all I really need.

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.

Drifting Away

The world was so small now
I can't see you here with me
The clouds are getting darker
Surrounds my reality

We were used to be so closed
But now we are far apart
But I know I still care
I will still have you in my heart

Now we are drifting apart
And I cry
And I can't sleep
I can't breath
When you are still
Under my skin
I don't want to believe
That this is real
My heart can't be fix
When we are drifting away

Every moments I think of you
I think of the times we had
Everytime I wish to see you
I would wan to see your smile
Again

I'll Follow You

If you cry out my name
I'll come running to your door
I'll be there when the world walks out
When you're broken up inside
I will be by your side
Hold you through the night
Be there when it rains

There will be storms, I promise you
But I swear I will help you get through
Cause it can't rain forever
I'll follow you, whatever you do

My arm around your neck
Your head on my shoulder
Hold you tight
Squeeze back in you the will to carry on
The spark, the fire, the fight

If you cry out my name
I'll come running to your door
There will be storms, I promise you
But I swear I will help you get through
Cause it can't rain forever
I'll follow you, whatever you do

You can never be alone
Cause a part of me is tied to you
Just know that
I'm never alone when I think of you
I'll be there every single second
Every single day
For the rest of my life
You're an amazing person
One of these days, I know
I hope
You will see more in me than the girl who is your friend
Cause I'll be there for you more than any one in the end

The Future yours to carve

The darkness has passed and the morning has come
The birds sing hello to the day
But you lay there'til you and the pain become one
Willing all but your sorrow away
.
What happened the girl full of wonder and awe
Who dared steal your thunder away
Who took all the dreams and the visions you saw
And coloured them empty and grey
.
Don't let your tomorrows
be written in stone
The past has a will of its own
See through the lies all the clear crystal skies
And the future's not written in stone
.
You've given me hope and a chance to believe
And the wonderof living again
The Stars hurt my eyes now the darkness can grieve
For the loss of one more of its friends
.
The reason's been blowing too long in the wind
The answers too vague to define
We've all had a past and all sinners have sinned
Your sorrow's as ageless as time
.
Don't let your tomorrows
 Be written in stone
The past has a will of its own
See through the lies all the clear crystal skies
And the futures not written in stone

The Dance

Swaying. I'm dreaming. Sinking. I'm dying. Freefalling. Angels sing a beautiful melody. Hallelujia, oh hallelujia. The light shines on me, enchanting. It's holy, it's holy. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. My heart is pounding deep within my chest. Dancing with in my eyes ceases to exist. I am not alone. Blinded no longer is the truth hidden inside. And we're swaying. The angels singing. Hallelujia, oh hallelujia. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. On golden streets we dance to the harp, he's holding me close. Silver is the moon, blue are the stars. I fall awestruck to my knees, swimming through splashing amber seas of innocence. The steps of the dance, guided by his gentle hand. I am at rest, I am at peace, folded in the glory of my coming. The spitting fire engulfing me. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. I'm spinning, my dress all around, and he's twirling me, my hair falling down. Now as he pulls me close, I see his kind face, I know I am secure, I know I am safe. My best friend Jesus, I smile at him. Oh, dancing with Jesus... I am alive again. I'm dancing with Jesus... In Heaven with Jesus... I am alive again. I am alive again...

WHO MAKES ME THINK WHAT I THINK

Who makes me think what I think?
Was I born to judge the folly
of others with a satire?
Seeing their imperfections,
pitying their endless misery,
offers me that chance
to compare theirs with mine,
but rolling the dice is unfair.


Who makes me think what I think?
Are compassionate words put into me,
to gush forth as a lively brook in spring...
refreshing my stale enthusiasm,
rejecting foolishnes to let it wisdom in, 
accepting changes with a new mind and will?


Who makes me think what I think?
Are these ideas and emotions daily learned by observing
human actions leading to life or death?
But very few are defined by compassion, others have
that deep hatred in them refusing to end it...
being a witness makes one aware of those differences!

for those who choose to stay

all that i want for you is our peace
all that i want for you is our peace
hands are tied and young
can't you see?

Where will we go when there is no journey to embark
People only exist as shadows alone in the dark
you can pray and i'll do what i can to get by
Maybe one of us will see another day

Have you ever just taken a breath and enjoyed yourself
I'm beginning to see, who is winning in me
The lenin and fees, a ginuine breeze 
He continually believes in the falling of leaves

all that I want for you is our peace 
all that I want for you is our peace
Hands are tied and young 
Can you see?

two fingers apart, a crescent down the center
at times we admire the pleasantries of a mentor
I'm out on my heels, it seems i only stand for splentors
People are warmest when the sun fails in the winter

Candles dim, yet we continue to carry them
It takes mass production to handle film
soldiers and platoons channel the wind
in the end we were merely only men

all that i want for is our peace
all that i want for is our peace

I can not

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

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

I can not 
I can not
Oh no...

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

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

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

"but"....

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

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

"oh"

(I can not share my heart with you)

Abortion at seventeen

Abortion at seventeen 
=
The shades of black within you surface
before you lose consciousness on the 
sanitized bed of the hospital.
No friendly face is waiting outside.
Your age is seventeen… almost.
This is the age of the quick use and throw.
The shades of black make you take an oath, 
just before sleep, medicated sleep,  
that you won’t attach yourself to
anyone for long. You are cured
from romances, immune from love.

These are the words that belong to past, 
I urge to tell more to see if tears 
are going to make you less of a goddess 
which I think you actually are.

Dedicated to soildier girl -n- Ft.Hud {The Bus Ride}

It was that of a ride.
That of a lady by the side to which caught the eye.
That of her toes that was red to the color.
As she was the most beautiful on the ride.
Her hair long and wavy as her smile lights the room.
Her body was that of an young vulpine as I experience it first hand.
As we sat and I rubbed her feet for hours on end.
That time went by like the year that passes.
Passing like that of the seasons as my mind wonders.
Wondering what it would be like to hold her tight.
It wasn't that we weren't close but there was distance in between.
As I felt my heart melting from a distance.
I know some how we connected but not knowing?
Knowing, rather we would see each other again.
I dream of the day at hand.
As I think of if, I could just pull her close.
How I would never want to let go.
But it was more then just that.
It was the love two had shared with the twingle of an eye.
But it was more then any could replace.
Because it was done from a love deep inside.

Jimmy On A Noose

Jimmy on a noose
Perhaps I should cut you loose
Read your little note
Cover you up with your bed clothes.

Jimmy, you let it hold you tight
Why couldn’t you just let it go?
Why did you bottle it up inside?
And let it grow.
For there’s something’s that are too hard to hide
All on your own.
Why didn’t you ever confide?
I guess now I’ll never know.

You didn’t seem strange
Perhaps sometimes a little low
I know it’s not exactly a cosmopolitan place
That we call home
But you could’ve kept a secret
Most people do
If it got too heavy to hold
I would’ve carried it with you.

Jimmy on a noose
Perhaps I should let the truth
Fall in to the flames
I can’t bear to read about your shame.

Jimmy, I won’t claim to understand
I can’t even begin.
I know you thought it made you less of a man
But to me you were a king.
Now as I see you hang
I don’t feel a thing.
Maybe there’s no promised land
But at least you’re not suffering.

You woke up that morning
The sun was hanging somewhere
You even brushed your teeth
Ran gel through your hair.
But something didn’t feel right
Perhaps you felt sick
Perhaps all the guilt and the secrets and lies
Would not shift.
Did you cry as you wrote your note?
Did you cry as you tied the rope around your neck?
Did you cry as you slipped below?
Did you flail and wail until you had nothing left?

Jimmy on a noose
Perhaps I should just leave you
Hanging where you are
For I just don’t have the heart.

What about your mother?
What about your dad?
What about all the others?
Were we really all that bad?
That you could not trust us?
You felt you had
To hang here up above us
You didn’t even give us a chance.

Jimmy I don’t understand
How you could think
That you’d be less of a man
To me you were a King.
And now I watch you swing
Jimmy it’s all over
Before it ever did begin.

Jimmy on a noose
Perhaps I should cut you loose
But that’s not how I remember 
I don’t want to know the truth.

Stay long gone

I miss my wolf, I miss my beating heart
His emancipation breaks a soul 
The companionship so willfully valued
In the depths of my soul 
I created an Image so fulfilling and true 
My heart was filled 
In your arms it was hope
The treasures of our past 
Hidden in a well known secret.
It was true time past
Without a care in the light that grew 
We imagined and dreamed.
Knew each other in mind and spirit. 
Love was strong
Until time whisked him away,
In the lonely night.

LETTING GO

The mystery emotion that may always remain,
Is also the unjust feeling that brings so much pain.
The friendship that we thought that would last forever,
Will now threaten the life we had together.

The doubts in our mind, the fears in our head,
We set out of friendship and got pain instead.
So many obstacles stand in the way,
Shall we give up and leave, or shall we stay?

So many directions and different ways to go,
So many to blame and who’s to know.
How can the one you cared so much for,
Also be the one you can’t stand anymore?

When did our friendship became so unclear?
When did we start to hide in fear?
Losing each other would be so hard to take,
Could our hearts stand it, or would they just break?

But staying together isn’t just working out,
Is it just me, am I wrong to doubt?
Our friendship can only take so much we know,
Then its fragile bond seems to let go.

Shall we decide something we may hate?
Or shall we leave the rest up to fate?
So many questions, we don’t know what to do,
Some have answers, but are they true?

I wrote this hoping you could read it over,
Maybe when you’re done, we’ll be much closer.
You may find the answers that we both seek,
To the questions that leave our emotions weak.

Goodbye my friend, and please don’t sigh,
Cause deep in your heart, I know you won’t cry.

Our friendship


Oh my love, my perfect friend, 
my heart is filled to live again.
Let me share this life with you, 
growing old, let's live for two. 
When our final days do come, 
we'll remember we shared a 
world of fun. Through our
souls in the after life, let's 
be prepared for if we die but 
as you know we'll meet again, 
Let's cherish our days till the 
very end.

Your song

( dedicated to James Dalton Byrd and to his song "Old Man)

I cannot listen to your song,
It is too beautiful and sad.
Your voice so is pleasant and kind,
Like at good friend.
Indeed you are very far -
The big ocean is between us!
There is too much sorrow 
and only a few friends In my life.
Good luck despises me.
Bad problems laugh at me.
My hope is tired by my tears.
But your song tries to protect me
From my sorrow and problems,
To remind me of the fine friend for my soul
And to ask my hope to not abandon me.

Dylan

A silver river down your face. You hang your heas in such disgrace. I've found you in this awful place. You've fallen from your spot of grace You've never cried in front of me, But now your weakness I do see. You cry and cry because of she, And all alone you want to be. I do refuse to leave your side. You are ashamned of how you've cried. You scream your wish that you had died, And here I come to be your guide. Never again will you walk alone. You now have love to call your own. You tried to cut rigt to the bone. You're caught tonight, tears on the phone. Let me hold you for this night. I will help you through this fight. Let us try with all our might. We'll sit here 'til you're alright. Now listen friend, and listen well. We'll walk together through this Hell. I promise you I'll never tell. Best friends forever, it ends well. Now you're in a happy place. I love that smile on your face. All of your pain we did erase. Live loving life, for it's no race.

Cost

Kisses felt:
Moments lost. 
Priceless moments
Always cost.
Peace and love:
Childhood wishes.
Friends forever,
Like butterfly kisses,
Never last
More than a day,
Then they all
Fade away.
Dreams, like shoes,
Become too small
To fit our lives
When potential calls.
Kisses felt:
Moments lost.
Priceless moments
Always cost.
Is the price
Worth the pain?
Or worth the strength
We eventually gain?
Of course it is.
Just persevere.
Don't ever stop dreaming.
Don't live in fear.

cjh

it feels good to know 
I have found someone 
who cares as much 
as I love the sky 
as I love the rain 
as I love spring 
or a summer day 
it feels good to know 
I can look in your eyes 
and not be denied 
the love I feel inside 
is more precious than 
the first blooming flower
the first clap of thunder 
the first ray of sun 
after a shower 
it feels good to know 
where ever we go 
you are always with me 
by my side
and knowing you love me 
makes me fly
higher than the biggest plane 
further than geese on autumn days 
for I am undoubtably yours
forever.

Refrain

Can you hear the nagging refrain?
It comes from the depth of my heart
Where my hope found a good terrain
Where my longing and fear start.

Know I did my best to drown it out,
To annihilate it, or to forget,
But it comes back as an anguished shout
Full of terrible pain and  regret.

It's like a mantra or a poor dream
Waiting for the final fulfillment,
Like variations on one theme
With tones which are clear and vibrant.

But perhaps you can't still hear it,
Or perhaps it will never reach you,
Or you'll take it as a joke or a wit
For this refrain seems to be so untrue.

So you may be utterly astonished
To hear the sincere confession;
The only truth that should be banished
To non-existence – its destination.

Early April

The road comes to an end.
As I come around the bend, I see them.
Grouped and colorful, the hue of early April.
It was my cue to meet someone new.
Who was there that day?
What cars passed as I made my way?
Could anyone see our first embrace?
Such grace exceeds through my mind
Contoured, confound
For me this is pure phenomenon 
For you this is just another way to say
“Hey, you met someone new today”
But no, I hoard these memories with great passion 
Without a train of thought
I can remember what happened 
And oh, the smells
The smells tell the story 
A tale of a boy with no worries
Not a want in the world
Caught at the right time
 What he got:  Love for a lifetime.

Beautiful

Beautiful

I remember being a young girl 
Wanting to fit in 
Thinking pounds of makeup would make me pretty
So unsure of myself
With no self-esteem 
I had no clue 
That just being me 
Was more than enough
It was 

Beautiful

Wanting so bad to fit in 
I let myself believe that going by a different name
Would make me pretty
And make people want to be around me
So first I went by Gina, 
Then I changed the spelling to Gena 
Then to Jeanna 
Not realizing that no one really cares how it is spelled
And no matter what 
My real name is enough 
It is 
Beautiful

As I grew up 
I began to learn 
Friendship 
Isn’t about quantity
It’s more about quality
It was a lesson I had to learn on my own
Through a lot of abuse 
Being used most of the time
Yet among the users and abusers 
Without realizing it there was a few 
Who were true 
With them though it wasn’t about the makeup
The hair or the name 
It was about me 
The real me 
And from them and my family 
I learned that 
Just being my self is 

Beautiful

So Gina, Gena and Jeanna well they are gone
It’s Jean now 
And I am proud of that 
I am proud of who I am 
And even if I don’t have an army of friends 
The ones I do have 
I am happy to have because for the first time 
I can honestly say 
They are true friends 
Who like me for me
And that right there 
Is more than good it is

Beautiful 

So now the makeup is minimal 
Just enough to enhance the beauty that is already there
I wear my hair however I like 
I don’t worry about fitting in 
I believe that if it is meant to be then 
It will be because I am being me
Not the person I used to think everyone wanted me to be
Now I know that 
While the fake me yeah she was pretty
Where the real me is more 
Because I am 

Beautiful

By: Jean Bonella Shular

Here is to being who you are and loving it. Not letting anyone tell you who you 
should be. Here is to being Beautiful.

Down Hearted

I know that there is something
you have on your mind.
why don't you tell me
exactly what's wrong?
I know that you suffer
pretend to be strong.
Crashing and burning
your wings fall apart.
Can't help but to notice
your eyes show the pain.
You wrestle with notions
that make you insane.
You stare at the curtains.
You stare at the floor.
So we look into nothing
that's shown from the door.
We ask cause we to
to help find a cure.
It's not a bother
just talk when you can.

the otherside

Sometimes life is okay
Okay to be normal
Okay to be average
These are my Black and white days
My days that marked black and white
Sometimes it’s alright to be okay
Sometimes it’s okay to be alright
Sometimes it’s okay to be alike
 
He’d clean the parking lot
He really didn’t ask for a lot
He walked with the rain
Drenched he didn’t complain
He lived in a tent
Really was the last to comment
He didn’t play the blues
It was just another day without shoes
He didn’t need faith to know his place
He never mumbled
Pick up debris and marked subtly
 
Now Jon-boy saw the sun rise
He saw the sun set
He was thankful for whomever he met
He went to help a man in a nice suit and tie
He lie there on the pavement begging to die
As he reached out the man nearly cried
Leave me alone you stupid man
I don’t need help from homeless dude
To help me stand
His days were never saddened
But sadly on this day it had to happen
She saw a broken man
She took his hand
She and her purple curls
She was right there where you were
 
She told him
Sometimes life is okay
Normality’s alright 
but it’s okay to be average
And if average isn’t enough 
Then it’s alright to be normal
These are my black and white days
My days that are marked black and white
Sometimes it’s alright to be okay
Sometimes it’s okay to be alright
Sometimes it’s okay to be alike
 
She said
It’s the spool of yarn life strings you
The value of having less
This image before you is surviving stress
Why are you trying to cripple me with time
I’ve shaded blinds
Sang through chimes
Stepped away from my mind
A time or two
Made giants fall
Hugged empty walls
Picked myself up 
and once more crawled
I’ve prayed and failed
I’ve failed and not prayed 
I’ve seen the spoils of belief
I’ve been full and never got enough
Been hungry and could not eat
Been clean and messed up sheets 
Been impure and could not sleep

"been on the other side of a persuaded mind"

Birthday Rose

Introduction: A mother is such a wonderful poetry...She is the compass and blessing for her children and no matter what, in our hearts - she's the rose that never dies.


The moment I first opened my eyes, I saw your glowing face in shine You took me in your graceful arms, And poured my life in peaceful charm You sacrificed more than I can count, To raise me and strengthen my ground Every time you heard me scream, You took off from your every meal You fulfilled all my needs and dreams, You mean the world and more to me A teacher, a playmate, An answer, a guide of fate You reach out and pull me back, Whenever I get lost off track You love me like no other, Words just simply can’t explain, you are the best mother With you I never pretend, by your values I transcend You help me get my courage tight, You aid me to my wisdom right You are my loving mother, Someone I have to share my thoughts Always you know, always you care, Always you feel, always you heal Your tender smile lights up my life, From doubts that keep me captive at night Forever in my heart, you reside You care so much and feel so deep, You’re just everything I need I’m above grateful to have you in my life, As every time I think of you, I always feel revived.

Seraphic Fate

She lingers under the lemon tree
Savoring pungent disappointment
Eager to soar with the honey bee
Far from the burden of bereavement

Sinew and bone rattle with such great force
Yawping at the void till the voice grows hoarse
Consciousness gasps at such vulgar discourse
She's cracking the code so she'll trace the source

Cloistering thoughts occupy her mind
Vexing her pristine angelic face
Honest souls prove treacherous to find
Scrambling demons still give her chase

She wants it all when she's getting a slice
Passionate use of a learning device
She's combing the floor in search of the splice
For earning her way into paradise

If justice rules this vast universe
All miracles would favor her quest
I have little doubt she will traverse
Stars shall hold her divinely caressed

She's dancing languidly upon sunbeams
Covertly hiding from all of her dreams
Abandoning most of those petty schemes
Twisting her tortured soul to such extremes

Spellbound by those gleaming jewels azure
Enraptured beyond mundane desire
Proud to befriend a spirit so pure
Precious fuel feeding creative fire

DREAMING

DREAMING


When I was walking down the hall I felt a pain that hurt me
poignantly but it was not really there

When I was walking up the stairs I met a man who was not there
and he was not there again to day- oh how I wish he'd fade away!

When I was at the table alone I spoke with a lady who was dressed
in grass and cotton but she was not there and maybe I was not either

There just is not a way to know when we are dreaming is there?
Nevertheless dreams do come true some times


Details | Lyric | |

...

The words we say,
The things we do,
The games we play 
And tricks go through,
The plans we make 
And world we bear
Are cheap and fake,
If noone`s there
To hold our hand 
And make us laugh,
To be our friend 
And share our path,
To be the one 
Who makes us better.
The faults we `ve done 
Don`t hurt and matter,
When we have those,
Who know and feel us,
When our pain grows,
They come to heal us.
Cause there are things 
We can not measure.
The joy love brings 
Is more than treasure.
One caring look, 
One tender touch,
That`s all it took 
To know how much
Our life is worth.
Without them near,
We`re lost on Earth 
In doubts and fear.
When there is  none 
To love and cherish,
We come undone 
And slowly perish.

I really never could have dreamed or even pictured the day
That the lord would take you from me but he toke you away 
I deeply wish he would have toke me but instead he choose you
And now i'm lost out in this world not know what i should do
I lost a special part of me you are my heart and my soul
I seem to feel so incomplete because you made me feel whole
I never thought that at this moment i'd be having to cry
While thinking of you for a minute as i'm watching the sky
I see your face out in the darkness as i'm closing my eye's
And Sam it's hurting at this moment as i'm saying good bye
I hope you're listening to this words because they're not filled with lies
Yea you can see my deep emotion for the tears in my eye's
I never had a broken heart until that day i lost you
And on that very same day i lost a part of me to
Now while i'm still down on this earth i'm still going to do what i do
But keep a seat right beside you because i'm going to meet you there boo...........................

JIM MORRISON -- DEATH OF A ROCK

    JIM MORRISON--DEATH OF A ROCK 
There's a man all alone and his name is well known
but he thinks all the world is a den
of the poor and the weak and the too dead to speak
for themselves, it's a game they can't win.

He's a little bit high and he'll be til we die
it's too bad that his heart is so black,
but he knows how to sing to a crowd and to bring
out the love that they've been holding back.

It's a game that he plays with your life and he stays
just as long as the music goes on,
and he'll make you to smile if it's only a while,
then he goes where the devil has gone.

All the girls that he's had think it's not all that bad
but the glitter's too much for their mind
so they leave him to sleep where no angel would keep
anyone for there's not one to find.

He could write every word of the songs we have heard
and he's led every daughter astray
to be part of his past and a love that won't last
and he lights every fire in his way..

Now he looks for the cause of the reason he was
as he died he's still misunderstood,
but the dream's been too dead for too long in his head,
and he rode out the storm as he should.

Remember

There was a time, when we were close,
But now it seems, our distance grows.
You slip away, I`ve loosen grip.
A day will come and we shall skip
The long good byes and sad take care,
And won`t judge what`s wrong and fare.
If you can`t stay with me no more,
I`ll leave your life and close the door.
But you were with me, by my side,
When I was laughing, when I cried.
You had the warmth to dry my tears
And I will save that warmth for years.
Remember me, my dearest friend,
Remember precious times we`ve spent.
Remember, if you didn`t see,
How you became a part of me.

When I See You

When I see you
I cant breathe

When I see you
I cant think

When I see you
Should I say hello?

When I see you
I would walk very slow..

And here is what I do.. when I see you

Everytime I see your face
I got scared and I dont know what to say
Is it because of your friends?
I used to like being with you but not with them

So when I see you
I feel strange

I dont know why but I look away

That what happens when I see you ...

Shooting Stars - part 3 of Cherry-top Bliss

Believe in me…reflect on me…let’s push away the worries that want to ruin 
our night spent together…God has two hearts to fix
I love it when you wrap yourself around me like my own personal, warm 
blanket on this moon-drenched night – you are so gorgeous…so vivacious!!~

You are illuminating nightfall like shooting stars,
Piercing me in the inside…leaving scars
The ghosts of the past come to haunt me tonight
Let’s fly high like a kite & let’s take fervor flight & let’s get through this plight 
together as a team – we’ll be alright

Shooting stars scorch the skies tonight
Neon lights light up in my heart…
My heart’s pounding with fright and delight
We’re wasting time and I’m freaking out…
Please…don’t let my young heart break apart
You are a beautiful diamond in the cave
Be strong, behave, and be brave…
You’re the luscious, dark chocolate that I crave

Pre-chorus:
I will squander my time now and forever
(Are you an evil, fallen angel?)
Until I meet you eye to eye again
Our departure came to soon…our future’s a blur
(sarcasm: Oh you must be a sweet, beautiful angel –)
Come on & get out of the lion’s den!
Release me…I need to let go…
Believe in me…reflect on me…
Release me…let me go with the flow
Let me grow and see…the light at the end of the tunnel
There’s other fish in the sea…

*Chorus* 
I need you to ascend from your debris – let’s dance the night away! We will 
arise from our ashes like a fervent, blazing phoenix
Tell me if I’m as handsome as the lion that’s graceful, strong and 
courageous…I know for a fact that you are dangerously magnificent and 
gloriously precious
Believe in me…reflect on me…let’s push away the worries that want to ruin 
our night spent together…God has two hearts to fix
I love it when you wrap yourself around me like my own personal, warm 
blanket on this moon-drenched night – you are so gorgeous…so mysterious…

You are illuminating nightfall like shooting stars,
Piercing me in the inside…leaving scars
The ghosts of the past come to haunt me tonight
Let’s fly high like a kite & let’s take fervor flight & let’s get through this plight 
together as a team – we’ll be alright

Beautiful nightmares haunt you and I – let’s pray that we’ll be set free from 
disparity and earn plenty of prosperity 
I’m running away from the demise of today…let’s pray that the remorse and

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

Love Drunk

I wasn't supposed to be there! I should be cramming books into something called my head.
What's up with the Fed? Why they crashing this party?
Well I really don't care as long as I can go home and rest in bed.
Why is my friend going to jail she ain't do anything!
I asked if I could take her place but she said "no way!"
I stood there watching as she fell from my heart.
Do I really want to be more than friends? I honestly say no.

Please don't listen to me, I'm a little drunk out of love.
I can't see anything but hearts when I lie about her.
Like that last statement not wanting to be more than friends was so false that the letters
on the keyboard turned to massive hearts.
The screen was gone and I disappeared into the dark. Away from her life and further away
from her heart.

Undeniable

I don’t like her, he says he loves her
I don’t know what he sees in her
I want him to look at me
The way he stares at her
And it’s killing me inside
I can’t put my feelings aside
You’re my best friend
But it’s getting harder to pretend

When I cry
You always make it alright
She’ll never love you
The way I want to
Who could deny these butterflies?
They’re undeniable, undeniable
But you wait and see
You’ll fall in love with me
Who could deny these butterflies?
They’re undeniable, undeniable

You can be my Romeo
And I can be your Juliet
I really do love you
And I just have to tell you
We’re made for each other
Nobody will love you
More than I want too
Who could you deny these butterflies?
They’re undeniable, undeniable
They’re undeniable, undeniable
Undeniable

'inbetween'

A song between songs,

   it is all wrong,

bend, twist, pretend, forget,

far beyond, to far fetched,

   it never ends

     'inbetween'

A song between songs,

   its all mixed up,

Imformation,opinions, right or wrong,

 another step when lines are drawn,

   its gone on for so long

        'inbetween'

A song between songs,

 it is all right,

 dance sing shine your light,

  here it starts from within,

   it can't be wrong,

  never give up,

   don't give in

    stand up,

     we will win,

       no matter what,

There is no end,

    'inbetween'

When you need me


Who's there when who needs who, 
who's there for you? When your heart 
sinks beneath the imaginations of your 
thoughts and your mind want to leave 
you blind, who stayed by your side? 
When you close your eyes and your 
dream seems out of sight, who kept
your hopes alive? For every time you 
cry without the faith to keep you high 
and the peace you need in life. I'll be 
by your side when you truly needs me.

RAIN


Muddy body,
slimy spirit
and my wet vision doesn't identify you near.

All my fresh is drenched with water.
All my soul is imortally drowned.

(You will not come as usual, it's clear.)

Days of dryness.
Days of wild heats.
and many of harsh heart beats.

Days of atrocious storms.
Days when I born
and some when I die 
(that I feel myself aside)

And there are days I'm out of bounds...

But when you don't hear my claim,
and when you are not even around,
These are the days
when I always rain.

Patricia Evans

ONE WAY

One way or another I'm going to find you
I'm going to get you get you get you get you
One way or another I'm going to win you
I'm going to get you get you get you  get you
One way or another I'm going to see you
I'm going to meet you meet you meet you meet you
One day, maybe next week
I'm going to meet you, I'm going to meet you, I'll meet you
I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I'll see whose around

One way or another I'm going to find you
I'm going to get you get you get you catch you  obtain you
One way or another I'm going to win you
I'll win you, I’ll keep you
One way or another I'm going to see you
I'm going to meet you meet you meet you meet you
One day, maybe next week or next year
I'm going to meet you, I'll meet you

And if the lights are all out
I'll follow your bus downtown
See whose  hanging out
I'll walk to the mall
Stand at the wall
Where I can see it all
Find out who you call
Lead you to the supermarket
 Checkout some specials and cat food,
 Vanish in the crowd and turn up again

Bully part 4 (Final)

Flashback to '95 one year before you were born.
You know what happened to your momma involving all the hate?
Love's in the air, at least that's what she thinks.
Right around the corner she got raped and you soon to be born.

Come back to reality and now you're breathing through a tube with a damp cloth on your
forehead.
"Pulse is back to normal" is what you hear.
What you see you can't believe!
He's right there next to you praying like monk!
Was this a trick? He. Of all people.....was praying for you?
Start to shake but you know you're a different person now.
Your heart reaches out to touch him and it says thanks.

You're a different person now.
No strings behind my masterminded plans.
Not even a henchman to do your dirty work.
I kill, I murder, I slaughter all in real time and just in time for dinner time.
I'm stilling working at this hour? How many dead bodies have I collected?
I don't remember a thing. Just the game being turned off by my mom.


Details | Lyric | |

To Scared to Speak

I'm bound by these shackles 
of your leave that won't leave.
You moved on back then
but my heart, it won't grieve.
Instead it denies truth
and swears that you'll be back.
I've tried so hard to fight,
strength of will I will always lack.
I'm so in love with you
like there has never been love before.
These goals, these hopes, these dreams
mean nothing without you anymore.
Even though unrequited
these feelings may never cease.
They'll never make it past my lips,
though they day by day increase.
So I'll listen to all your problems,
And then you'll listen to mine.
I'll still pretend you're just a friend,
And tell you that I'm 'fine'.


Details | Lyric | |

After All

After all of the hurt,
The secrets and the lies,
You still love me.
You're still by my side.

After all of the pain
And all of the tears,
You still plan on staying
For many more years.

After all of our problems,
There's still happiness.
Sometimes it hurts,
But I can't walk away from this.

There is no one else
On this earth for me.
We were made for each other.
Why can't you see?

You think you don't deserve me,
But I don't deserve you.
You're too good to me,
Despite what you do.

We've been through so much,
Seen both sunshine and rain.
There's still so much left,
But I know we'll stand the pain.

A boy and a girl

I remember the day I first saw her face on the school bus such an uneasy place
we both were shy it took months just to talk soon enough we would always walk
from the stop to her house were I d stand uneasy the sweat would pool in my right hand
One night late after school she came to my house I tried to be cool 
she asked if I would like to go out of course I did but I was nervous anxious filled with doubt

we spent a whole summer just hanging out some times I got so nervous I wanted to shout
I recall how she first placed her hand in mine I was sweating so bad I was losing my mind
the touch of her fingers in my sweaty palm gave comfort unknown and a relieving calm
I realize now she was just as scared but she seemed so calm ready and aware

she became my very best friend but even I knew the summer would end
before the fall came an took her away we spent time with each other everyday
a few weeks before school started again we went to the park are spot back then 
she looked in my eyes for ever it seemed I was confused and young I almost screamed
then she leaned towards me with the sweetest touch she said shed miss me very much
and then it happen her lips searched and found mine out in that moment it removed all doubt
an innocent peek between dearest of friends learning how such things have there ends
after school started that year she moved away I have not seen her since that day

Forever she holds a piece of my heart the innocents we shared was ours from the start
even tho Ive grown a lot since then that young love is for thick and thru thin
we never took not a thing from one another we held each other up learned from one another
I wonder if she thinks of me I think of her and lonely nights I hope she lives happily
youth is something you cannot keep I miss those days on the grass we would sleep 

somewhere inside the shy little boy waits for the day he might see that girl once again
the soul that taught me how to love and to be loved how to end and how to begin
I know ill never see her again I know its only memories something lost to the past 
if I would have known it would end that way and be over so quick so dam fast
I would have told her more of the true me maybe then Id feel whole at last
sweet first love I hope you find a life of love and find your faith in the god above
she will always been in my heart and mind and for now we must leave us behind

THINE TRUE SELF

THE BEAUTY YOU SEE IN MY EYES IS,
SADNESS FROM ALL THE PAIN I'VE SUFFERED IN MY LIFE.
MY RAGE IS MY SCARS, FROM ALL THE DAMAGED HEART ACHES,
I'VE EVER FELT.
WHILE YOU SEE ME SMILING OR LAUGHING ON THE OUTSIDE,
MY TEARS ARE CRYING OUT SILENTLY.
ALL ALONE, AND UNLOVED,
AND BARON OF A FAMILY;
AN ORPHANED AND ABANDONED AS A CHILD,
NOW A GROWN WOMEN.
I TRIED TO TURN MY BACK ON MYSELF AS WELL,
ONLY TO BE BROUGHT DOWN TO MY KNEES SCREAMING,
WITH ALL MY OVERWHELMING EMOTIONS RUNNING WILDLY,
INSIDE OF ME.
WISHING OTHERS WOULD UNDERSTAND HOW GRATEFUL THEY
SHOULD BE TO HAVE FAMILIES THAT REALLY LOVE AND CARE FOR THEM;
INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING AND GROANING.
THINKING TO MYSELF,
IF ONLY MY FAMILY SHOWED ME THAT
THEY LOVED ME THAT AS MUCH AS
I LOVE THEM.
INSTEAD REALITY SETS IN AND REMINDS ME ON
HOW CRUEL THIS WORLD HAS BEEN TO ME.
I FINALLY DECIDED TO START ANEW,
AND THIS NEW BEGINNING HAD ITS UPS AND DOWNS;
AND LIFE LESSONS THAT NEEDED TO BE LEARNED.
ACKNOWLEDGE AND APPLIED.
LEAVING ME WITH THE DREAM AND HOPE,
THAT ONE DAY SOON I WOULD FIND MY KINDRED SPIRIT,
OR HE WOULD FIND ME TO LOVE ME IN THE LOVING WAY,
THAT WE BOTH NEED AND DESERVE.

My Dearest Friend

I'm here because you're all I got
You're there for me when no one else is not
I want to give thanks to You
For the unconditional things You do
I will never stop showing love to You
Just know that I'm here when You need me to
You will be the only one I'll look to
In each and every little thing that I do
As long as You're with me
That's all I need
As long as You're in my soul
I will always be whole

Behold the Beautiful One

You are truly an African Beauty
An Epitome of Ebony Beauty
Glowing and Radiating Warmth
Oozing true Beauty from the Inside
With the Aura of a Princess

You are a Beauty to Admire
You are a Beauty to Desire
You are a Beauty with Grace 
You are a Beauty to Behold
A true Beauty of African Essence

second-hand lives

Ask for help
I’m right here now
Hold your breath
Wither on
No place to run to 
No place to go
This place 
Your home

Ask for help
I’m right here now
Take your step
I won’t hold you down
Hoard your breath
Wither on
This place 
Is your home

Beneath the moon
We hid till noon
Deeply felt
I’m outside of you
Grace your path
It’s all we have 
Where wonders fade
We will go 

Your air
Is built 
Of broken
Breaths
Your ground
Is soft 
No place 
To step

No bridges
Spare 
No thoughts
Too rare
When 
No memories 
Flare 

You asked for help 
I’m right here now
Hoard your breath
I won’t hold you down
Wither on 
This place 
Is your home

tiger and pooh

me and you, we're like tiger and pooh.
friends till the end, but the end were still friends.
your like my sister before any mister.
ill love you til the day i die.
with god in the sky as my witness he'll see
yo are the other half of me.
your their when i'm sad, crazy or mad.
you know when to cry with me or just sit silently.
help me get up when i'm down,
get rid of my frown.
i cant live without your smile,
ill walk the extra mile
to talk with you a while
like a scared little child.
this thing between us
its something to hold onto.
it proves how much i love you,
just like tigr and pooh...

Whenever I hear your name

Though we're apart
in land not heart
I still feel the same
whenever I hear your name
It's not clear when
or if we'll see
a future together
and how happy we could be

I wasn't looking
when I found you
wasn't searching
when my dreams came true
It feels like I've found
the other half to my soul
someone to null the emptiness
a key to my heart that fits the hole

Silly isn't it
to feel so grand
when the object of your affection
resides in another land
but distance doesn't matter
no rain, sleet, or even snow
could keep my heart from loving you
this, I hope you know

Oh no, I wasn't looking
when I found you
when you flipped my world
turning my little blue heart a new hue
It feels like I've found
that one person in my life
that means so much more
than mere words can write

If love is blind
I wouldn't know
you stole my breath
as if you stole the show
our meeting was chance
one I'll never regret
your name is but one thing
I will never forget

Though we may be apart
in land, not heart
I'll always feel the same
whenever I hear your name

Request

I got used to your tactful presence in my life
And to the pleasant thought that you still look for me.
None of us wants to reach for a surgical knife
To cut us in half because there is no “We”.

In the forest I lost sight of the way to you
And then I woke up in the middle of the night 
To recall the pensive eyes and the smile I knew,
But there were stars only and the moon in sight.

Finding the winding path, I could retain my dreams;
Tangibly, and day after day, and for ever.
I’ll try to find it anew with the first sunbeams;
The weather was still adverse so far, however.

So please don’t vanish in the depths of the unknown
Even though there is no chance for me and you,
And even though you mustn’t cross the banned zone
Where my tears mixed with the morning dew…

EVERY LOVE IS VERY PRECIOUS TO ME

I express my true emotions without expecting returns;
I set no rules how friends and people should love me,
because every love is very precious to me!
 

Love me less, or love me more;
and joy would take me away to soar...
thanks for the thoughts, however big or small!
 

Any friend who gives out of genuine love,
shouldn't give it for only a day, but forevermore;
yes, every love is very precious to me!


Nobody could imagine what's the greatest love;
hear me pray joyfully amid the silent walls of a room... 
where all my prayers become flowers in bloom!


Who can doubt my kindness when friends turn to me? 
Everything that I posses, I will give away gladly...
to show them that every love is very precious to me!


Never judge me for taking my time to give it;
I am always ready to offer it and share it...
admitting that every love is very precious to me!   


I hope to live longer and happier years that God intended for my good;
I'm sure obedience to Him will greatly favor me...
and that He'll certainly approve that every love is very precious to me!

How Fortunate We Are

Its easy to forget, amidst the frenzy of the season,
That all this “sound and fury,” it happens for a reason:
That words, we fear, fall short somehow expressing what we’re feeling
And gifts will say, another way, how fortunate we are.

I know that I forget, sometimes, to thank you for your kindness
But knowing you, as I do, broadens my horizons.
I’ve become a better man, a better human being.
I won’t forget to show or say how fortunate we are.

Thank you for your friendship, thank you for your time.
Thank you for accepting me with all these quirks of mine,
But don’t forget that I am here when life, it sends you reeling.
I’ll find a way to help you see how fortunate we are,

You were there....anytime..

Yes, you were there...

Our September

Dedecated to my American friend, UrsulaT.Gibson
--------------------------------------------------------------------


Today Summer leaves St.Petersburg.
August has already prepared the suitcases.
His plane will depart after 12 hours of night.
At the same time other plane will land in my city.
Autumn will arrive in it.
Heads of trees still have their magnificent green curls,
There are many flowers still on my balcony.
But the sun is no longer tender,
But rain already cries beyond the window.
Tomorrow September will knock on our doors.
What he will be?
Gentle and fine?
Or cool and sad?
But somewhere in far California
you, my friend, continue to enjoy warm summer.
Your roses are blossoming,
Your cats lie in the shadows and converse with you.
At night the stars guard your dreams.
Several years ago
I did not know that there is such beautiful name, Ursula.
Now this name is present every day
In my letters, thoughts and poems.
Dear Friend! 
Look at the night sky.
You will see a small star and will understand,
This is my soul has arrived to tell to you "Hi! "
While I sleep.
Hi, Ursula! 
I hope, that this autumn will be our friend
And will bring us both good luck!

A swallowed Cry

A Swallowed Cry

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

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

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

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

A song for the voyage

O God brainwash me O God eyewash me
So that I can see You With Your Glory

O God brainwash me by your great thought
Give me wisdom to thank you a lot

O God eyewash me by your sweet light
Wake me up make me feel alright

O God, come to me in my sweet dream
Please don’t sink my ship don’t make us swim

Please Realize; a reply to Dillusion by Jeri-Anne Wilder

You know that he's fake
You know it's not real
When he's next to you
Love can't be what you feel
The lies may seem real
Because you want them to be true
You make yourself believe
But your trust is being used
You know he's not all yours
You know of at least one someone else
You have someone else to blame
Please stop blaming yourself
You know that he's fake
You know it's not real
When he's next to you
Love can't be what you feel...
       Because all you really do is deal

across the line my version

in this sandsea
of darkness
lieing with a pain across his cheast
pretending he is heartless
as a fire flashes from the sky
he was fragile
and frozen
when paranioa took away his friend
and now he is somehow more broken

he is the waiting for the end of his demise
holding onto all of his goodbyes
holding his fate across the line

slowly
breaking
lieing with a pain across her chest
she wakes with her craving
as the fire burns her eye
she was fragile
and frozen
when deaths grip took away her friend
and now shes somehow more broken

she is waiting for the end of her demise 
holding onto all of her goodbyes
holding death across the line

*this is a song by linkin park off the underground album but i did alter it somewhat i 
did not create the song only changed some of the lyrics*

DEEP WITHIN MY HEART

Come take a walk with me,
   Through this long mind’s journey,
Where inside my every thought,
    Lies a secret that I hold,

A love I cannot deny,
   That runs rich within my mind,
And keeps me awake at night,
   Until the dawn of light,

A love so strong inside,
   But yet hidden from your eyes,
Untold within my heart;

Believe me when I express,
  What my heat had longed to say,
For through these gentle words,
  You’ll come to understand,
What my heat had hidden away,

And from my deepest feelings,
  My true love will surface,
That love that will never fade,
  Cause you will always remain,
Deep within my heart.

Pain

Pain is all I can feel
In my heart
In my soul
In me

Pain is such a hurtful thing
I wish I was free
To be happy
To live

But all now that had been left behind
I was falling to pieces again and again
The world became my enemy
And Pain is what i will always gain

To live
To Be
What I want to Be
But There's Pain In me

Dedication, Love

I never had a person in my life that understands me like you do, you came into my life unnoticeable and i new that you were true. I pored out my heart to you, and you listened when no one did, you pored out your heart to me like a fact that couldn't be concealed. I never thought that meeting a person like you would make me smile again, so now i walk around with a big smile, not a grin. Every time i look into your eyes i want to go swimming, cause you draw me in without a sense of knowing. The perfect shape of your smile bring me hope, and your lips that look so luscious when you smile gives me hope. A hope that there are people in this world that give a dam, not like the people that take and take everything away. Your kind heart sings out to mine all the time of the night, and when i look at you i feel like i don't ever want to lose that sight. Your beauty makes me weak, your long dark hair that hangs down so sleek. Your loving hands that wave hello are too soft for me, and your cute little feet that make you look perfect in your frame. I just hope, dream and wish that we will always be like this till the end of my days, cause i cant do it alone, without a friend like you by my side i would just go other ways. So please hold my hand where ever you go, and hold it tight cause all i want to do is look at your beautiful sight. You are amazing, that's why i don't feel like a ghost, cause your love made me care for you the most.

Bless the Bruised and Crying

Take the broken into your arms
And heal them with your heart.
Take the bruised into your life
And let them know you care.
Take the crying into your soul
And don't let them fall apart.

Bless the ones who come before you
And give them what they need.
Bring forth those who love you
And spread their hidden joy.
Break up what's frozen them like stone
And look a little deeper to see.

Despairing children reach for you
And they long to call you home.
Do this for the little ones.
And remember; they are just children.
Don't turn the other cheek when you look upon their tears
And try to never, ever, leave them all alone.

Take the broken into your arms
And heal them with your heart.
Bless the ones who come before you
And give them what they need.
Despairing children reach for you
And they ask their questions for you to heed.

Take the bruised into your life
And let them know you care.
Bring forth those who love you
And spread their hidden joy.
Bless the bruised and crying
For only your love can they share.

Liken Marriage to an Egg


The egg may be cracked
But, yes it can be fixed
With bit of bond and wax
And a few more little tricks

It’s only lost a bit of white
Not any of its yoke
The union yet still intact
Not too much really broke

With a bit more love and care
Some time to heal and mend
The crack can be set whole again
Made perfect in the end

Tick Clock

I grow, I breathe, I exhale, I die
I learn, I teach, I provail when I try
Crawled, walked, fell down then cried
I slept then awoke just to ask God why?

Tick clock tick tock my brother is now born
Next, two sisters later the family is now formed
We love each other dearly the feeling is all warm
But when push comes to shove the family is now torn.

I look upon my watch and I notice how time flies
Not when having fun but when ken folks die
When ken folk cry it's makes a stronger man
Tick clock tick tock I see the grains of sand.

My Feelings For My Friends

Even though time have surely changed
It's your names I can't forget
Childhood memories abound
Engraved inside my heart and mind

Even though you are not around
A thought of you and you're right there
My friends nothing has changed
There is nothing for you to say

Cause I'll always love you
As a friend through the end of time
It's the laughter we once shared
A precious moment in my mind
I will always remember you
And the crazy ways you made me feel
You opened a door within my heart
I could never close that on you

Even though years have passed us by
Recognizing the times and what they were
I noticed that you have changed your hair
But it's those eyes I can't forget

The sound and memory of your voice
It's all coming back to me again
The funny way we were back then
For me nothing has really changed

Cause I'll always love you
As a friend through the end of time
It's the laughter we once shared
A precious moment in my mind
I'll always love what we had
And the crazy ways you made me feel
You opened that door within my heart
I could never close that on you

Even though the years have passed on by
Recognizing the times and how they've changed
The memories flash of you and I
My feelings for you remain the same.

New Love

I am so Complex yet simple and unique
My heart loves strong but could use some critique
I'm not gone lie I'm starting for really give in
Mentally & Physically I'm falling in love with a friend
I'm noticing my emotions racing just by thoughts of you
I've been in this place before, just don't remember what to do
Talked to myself- make sure she understood to keep her heart
Then in my life you walk.... Kinda like a fresh start
So Pure, Honest, Refreshing and Clean
Your the only person in my world... know what I mean?
But bae... no lie I'm really scared to death
Fear of a broken heart... shattered... till there's none left
I kinda wished my wall wasn't built so high
But it has to be.... you know the reasons why
Not a day goes by that I don't bring you closer in my world
This thing I have for you has gone beyond just your digital girl
So rather we take baby steps or Huge leaps
I'm feeling like this love will be so deep
Started off as a friend, blossomed like a bliss
Awaking from my dreams of you.... yearning for your kiss
Not a second goes by that I don't wonder how you are
I feel your presence close even though we know your far
If I could sum up how I feel Mary's song would be my choice
You and I know her songs tell how we feel without using our own voice
"Looking for Someone to Love Me"..... has already been done
Now I'm singing "Be Happy"... In my mind knowing your the One
I will always "Stay Down" as long as you need me I'll be around
"You are my everything" .... Yes I'm loving that sound
Sum up how I'm feeling as I listen to " We Ride"
Listening to Mary to sing my emotions while your by my side

Two Paths

Which one will you take?
Two paths heading your way
And as you go by on this road
There comes another answer everyday

How do you explain everything?
About everything you are missing
The one you are missing
Is the one who may hurt you again

I know you missed her
I know you love her
But how you be together
If she makes your life harder

Two paths you have to take
You need to move on
Choose while you still can
There is no point standing here

The Fate of the open Doors
Are opening for you
Why not follow your heart, follow your mind
Where does it lead to?

These are the two paths
The two paths you must choose
The way to get an answer
Something you must never loose
The way to make your life better
Is to choose

So which path shall you take now?

The Truth

I have been hiding my secrets
My lies
The reason
Why I like to compromise
This is my life
You have to understand
I am so weird
I am crazy
You will hate me
For sure
You looked freak out
When I told you
About everything
And everything
About who I am
Please understand

I had struggled 
Hiding the truth inside
I can't lie
I don't want to hide
Anymore
I want to open that door
So that
I could see more

And I told you today
Your eyes were huge
I felt so weird
After telling you

Strange how my truth
Can be
It is not easy
To let it out
This is my darkest
And most biggest secret
I had told you
You got over it
Thought you would hate me

The truth is out
I could not forget this
Because 
Each time I see you
Reminds me of that day
The day I told you
Everything
The truth

Be Kind Blues

I've seen many a-man dressed in blue
Looking out just like you
But you must see things differently
'Cos he is just the same as me
Isn't he?

I've met many a-girl in green
Going to where you have been
But you must be going somewhere differently
'Cos she's in the right place to be
Isn't she?

Well can't you just let people be
Who they are not what you see
I guess it's all in your mind
But if you'd look you would find
A way to be kind

I've known many a-friend in black
In some things you both lack
But you must move a little differently
'Cos it's the same way we all flea
Don't we?

I've heard many a-one in white
Talk about how you fight
But you must listen differently
'Cos you both have the same plea
To me

Well can't you just let people be
Who they are not what you see
I guess it's all in your mind
But if you'd look you would find
A way to be kind

I never knew true love

I cant explain how I feel
I cant believe this is real
your heart belongs to me
girl we are meant to be

I cant let go of you
im so in love with you
your smile lights up the sky
you bring joy to my life

I will never leave you
I cant let go of you
girl you make me feel complete
you fll this hole inside of me

I cant let go of you
im so in love with you
your smile lights up the sky
you bring joy to my life

You Did Not Say Thank You

I had sacrificed my life
I had wasted all my time
But I did this for a reason
To help you all this while

You never thought I was the one
I am always invisible to your eyes
Bet you did not noticed
That I was like an angel by your side

I worried when you were feeling hurt
I could't sleep when you were suffering
But you didn't know how I felt
Trying to know everything

You thanked me once when I helped you
But it was all forgotten
You hurt me once when I saw you
But it was all forgiven

I had fallen before
And I seek comfort and help
But you did not care at all
You did not care how I felt

I know you were always in pain
And I was always there with you
Trying my best to cheer you up
But you thought I was a fool

And now that you are happy
So am I
But it was quite dissatisfied
That I couldn't denied

I helped you a lot
I sacrifice my life just for you
But I am glad you are fine now
Although you forgot
How I put myself through

It was okay 
It was alright
But when you left
You did not say thank you

A Beautiful Memory

It’s hard to break away from this life
But it’s harder to stay this way forever’
It’s not good to be a lover
But to be a quitter is worse.

Go on. Move on.
Strive to make your life better.
Break away. Stay away.
When you go you shall carry away
 A beautiful memory.

It’s good to taste life’s promises
But I don’t want my dreams to turm to ashes
Sometimes I’m annoyed at this life
Gotta take this pain out of my head

Cause I’ll never be a loser
I’ll never be a quitter

So I gotta move on.
I gotta go on to make life much better.
Break away. Stay away
When I go I shall have
A beautiful memory . . . with me.

dedicated to Ursula T. Gibson

1.

You have come into my heart

from hot, fine, very-far-away California.

You have said many interesting things.

You taught me English and Friendship.

You are for me an example

of courage, kindness, and talent.

Part of my heart now is your second home.

You do not need visas or tickets

to arrive here by the roads of the heart

It is enough to think about me a little,

and you will be already here in your second home,

which is always glad to receive you,

where you are loved very much,

where you need not pay rent

to live here always.

2.

The E-mail to the USA flies very quickly!

The USA has a weekend again.

In California, Ursula looks at the moon.

I send my greeting to her,

«Where are you? How are you?

I miss you!»

Danas Song

I see an opening, in the deep blue skies
and colors of the rainbow, are always flashing by
even when i msad i know, it'll be alright
itll be, itll be alright

There are some days that, I just sit and cry
Hopin and a prayin that the day would just die
When the days finaly done, I sing to, myself
Itll be, Itll be alright

Cuz i try to see past the grey
Cuz i know the clouds they will fade
and even when a door is locked-
you know that i will find another way

A the ocean sweeps the swiftful, waves away from shore
the little childrens precious dreams, are bound to grow much more
Have a little faith in you, I know itll be alright
Itll be, Itll be alright

Cuz i try to see past the grey
Cuz i know the clouds they will fade
and even when a door is locked-
you know that i will find another way

Cuz I see an opening in the deep blue sky
and colors of the rainbow are always flashing by
have a little faith in you, I know itll be alright
Itll be, Itll be alright

Cuz i try to see past the grey
Cuz i know the clouds they will fade
and even when a door is locked-
you know that i will find another way

Itll be alright

ballad of a wintered songster

Brandy and Crème soda 
Autumn summons us 
Shoulder to shoulder
We know not
If we’re getting older
We are self confident soldiers
I give you the best 
Of my brandy and Crème soda

March
Early and on we shall
Through these days of despair
Autumn prevails
Ways to soften
Whom could offer such a touch
A warm letter in the mail
Growing adolescents 
A young man
The consequences  that follow
A growing male
The turmoil that soothes us 
Is growing ale
The spice that tips ginger
Snaps a small town singer
“I love you”
It’s going to be a long winter
Shall we withstand 
This duration as centered
Look to no one 
For flaws 
seem to dissolve our mentors
Passion is Rum
Whiskey endures 
cold nights and un-sober palms
A rapist telling me
“I love your mom”
A young harlet calling 
“dear love come home”
A shelter 
From where doubt comes
The city’s filth 
Why it loves only my lungs
I’m good, I’m fine
Expressions in a glass of wine
Through these words 
A strangers poetry
You and I 
have become intertwined
I’m lost, I’m alone
I feel as though
I’ve become undone
Run, run, away and fast
On to no where, as orphans 
We were found at last

Words To My Friend

I didn’t sleep but two winks last night, 
Because with you I do not wish to fight!

Our friendship had a very strange start,
I never thought as close as we were, we’d ever part!

Through all the good times we’ve had,
I never would f dreamt things would have become this bad!

The root of all evil is money,
I never meant to hurt you honey!

Your friendship has meant the world to me, 
I hope one day it can be fixed, you see!

I opened up my heart completely to you,
Something I NEVER, EVER do!

You’ve never done anything, have only been so nice,
Lately, for some reason, I’ve been cold as ice!

When tears ran down my face, like a water fall,
All I had to do was pick up a phone and call!

When you were down, I’d lend you my ear,
If nothing else, just someone to hear!

Someone to talk to something to share,
With open arms, because we both care!

When Ronnie was sick, I did not stray,
Nothing in this world could have kept me away!

You were there for me when I had my last baby,
I never once thought, you were my friend MAYBE!

The men we love, we have married,
Even when things were bad with them, 
together theirr burdens we have carried!

We’ve had so many laughs and smiles,
It seems like we’ve gone on for many miles!

Like two peas in a pod, we once were,
What happened to us, is there even a cure!?

We’ve been friends for nearly eight years,
Now our friendship has been broken, bringing us to tears!

You’ve been there for me, and I you for so long,
How could things have gone this wrong!?

Most people would say, “Friends come and go”,
I thought and still do, we had so much more to show

We’ve been there for each other, through thick and thin,
I never thought that the DEVIL, could possibly win!

I must not be in my right mind, 
To have hurt my friend, who has been nothing but kind!

I only want the best for you, within your life,
I never meant to make you feel, like I’ve cut you with a knife!

The almighty dollar it has cost,  
Now a “TRUE” friend, have I really lost!?

A Song

I write this words
Words underneath me
Words Within my Soul
I am trying to Set Free

I am writing a song
A song about you
A song that will change my feelings
To nothing new

I am trying to feel better
I am trying to feel good
But you always be my fear
And destroys all my mood

The days are getting darker
And all dreams I wished had fled away
I do not want to know you
But fate has been so cruel to me these days

I will a write a song
A Song that will show you
How much pain I have in me
How much pain you never even knew

These words I wrote
The paper that I hold
I am strumming my guitar
And I am trying to Show

These words of me...
The song of you...
These tunes from me..

This song is for you.

Hell Of Reality

I do not know this unreal space
Is it an illusion?
or is it my Confusion?

The world still moves
The clouds still float in the air
The water still flows
And the wind still blows
The Light still shines
There's a Moon always in the Night
The sky is still Blue
The weather is Normal too
But When I Look at You
The world I'm living isn't that all true
To me

I am lost and I can't see
I can't feel what the world brings for me
There is no Light where eyes are blind
Only mine that seems to be undefined
What is this world I'm living in right now?
When is the time for me to come around?

The time still counts
The Air is still fresh
The Trees still talk
The birds has been singing
They never stops
But When I Look at You
The Flow of Reality Drops
In Me

I want to get out
i want to get out now
I want to get out
I want to come around now
I want to know
I want to know what is this all about
I want to why
Wouldn't You try to See me
Could You come around now...

You Inspire Me

You inspire me to have greater incentive, to put my life in perspective to a higher
level that I can achieve
You put the hope in me to want something better
To push myself so that I can muster the ability to take not what has come to pass

You give me the hope of a new tomorrow not to sit back and shake my head in 
sorrow
You make my heart beat faster and my pulse race with adrenalin flowing
thru my veins
You make me feel that I am someone special, not to settle for less than what
I  duly deserve
You call my name with a whisper of a caress, making me wonder with 
anticipation until I see you again

I not only think of you with a great fondness, but I also want you to know that you
inspire me to no end

When You're With Me

It was a gray overcast day
Humid and ordinary to anybody else
But it to me it was special in every way

We met up at this little place
Over your food and my drink we talked
I barely touched it cause there's nothing I'd rather look at than your face
I take you naturally in like oxygen when you're with me

On a gray day we set a fire at our table
Everything else just melted away
I liked the way I made you laugh
Your face fell into your hands
I loved the way you smiled at me

And when we took a walk in the parking lot
Everything else is what I forgot
Just an ordinary place
But the best thing was that smile on your face 
That's when you said "I'm so happy"
I love it when you're with me

The sun was setting as we were resting by the water
I was sitting on the rail as we spoke
The way you really looked at me 
I'm not sure if I'm drowning in you or floating on you like water
I liked the way you looked up as me as you stood by me while I sat
I loved the way you smiled at me

So you drove me home
I loved it when you said I was yours
Sitting beside you it felt so right
It's crazy to say but maybe, possibly this is how we should live our lives
My favorite passenger seat is yours
Cause it's so right when you're with me

This is where I want to be
Anywhere is beautiful as long as you're with me

With what I did not know
I can't let you go

I am your protection
I am the stars above you
I am the sun blessing you
I am the angel beside you

The wind warns me danger
I don't need anything in return
Don't be sad
I want to see you smile
That is what I need in return

I am here
I am here
I am your eternal protection
I am watching you always
I am here always
I am not going to leave you in pain
I am never going to let you in pain

My dear Friend,
I am your protection
Don't be scared
I am here
I am here
Your Angel
Your Protection

Unscrupulous

She jostles her way out
She  doesn’t see what you’re all about
She doesn’t even care if you’re okay
Or if you want to goon your way

But  you still love her
Yes you do
You still need her in your life
So much
That’s why you don’t love me
No, no more
You don’t need me in your life
That much

She argues with you
Even if she knows you’re right
She makes you a fool
But still you think it’s cool

Cause  you really love her
Yes you do
You still need her in your life
So much
That’s why you don’t love me
No, no more
You don’t need me in your life
That much

I can’t comprehend 
No I just cannot bend
Cause she is unscrupulous
Maybe she’s just jealous

So what if I love you 
I really love you
I need you in my life
So much
But you don’t love me
No, no more
You don’t need me in your life
Like her

She can’t love you like I do
But you don’t love me like I do.

Im So Tired With Me Now(Make Myself Sick)

	

Current mood: distraught
Category: Life

If i could just project my voice into the ears of those i love
I would take the world into my words and let them hear what my heart sings
it sings of joy and the past time with them,oh so it longs and holds on to that year
but im afraid if i let go now would they feel my heart as it heals and as I
Drop to the floor

I wonder if i shouldve stopped my heart before it fails to bleed
if i died unsuspectively what would my life mean
well dear wonders of this world look at what Beauty Ive Become
Now Watch me Lay out on the street

Take my wings
I dont need them because Angels only kill themselves in dreams
Its just as if heaven was inside my Veins So
Let me bless You know let me Bless these grounds

Let me spill onto the pavement so cold and Shameless im lost
but none of my friends can see this,are they blinded by my Mask
in which i always wear but if i offend you im sorry i swear
Im sorry that im dead

Make this your only comfort to see me lying there in that box soundly asleep
dont even bother trying to wake me,dont call my name
cause my heart feels no remorse or shame for what happened to me
I told you all that i was sick,but did you bother to listen to me

Kody

I’m completely intrigued
by the innocence of his eyes.
His laugh is so contagious.
He can open up a book
to a whole other world,
get you completely lost in the pages.
I envy his honesty
and his wild imagination.
There’s so much he can discover.
One day, he’ll find a soul mate
to stay by his side
and with all he has, he’ll love her.
But there’s no need to rush.
All that he needs,
he will surely receive.
Many years have passed already.
Seven birthdays…
it’s hard to believe.
So sad to watch him grow
and chase after life,
while time passes by.
I’m filled with regrets
of times we didn’t share
and a tear falls from my eye.
What more can I do,
what else should I say
to let him know I care?
I know we need each other
and I love him enough.
I only need to be there.
So sensitive and full of life,
always glowing with hope.
There will never be another
who lets me see the world
for what it can be.
He is my little brother.

Graduation Goodbye

High school days are gone
And all the work are done
As we are about to take a leap
Our memories together I will keep

There will be tears to cry
As we move on and bid goodbye
I know it will be hard to fly
Without you on my way up high

Thanks for the lift
That is a great gift
The jokes and your smile
Made me forget the pain for a while

Now is the time to take the crown
Don't face the world with a frown
Let them see your smiling face
And dancewith them with grace

When all of today's work are done
It  doesn't mean our freindship is gone
I hope someday you'll be fine
You'll realize that  . . . 
Graduation is not Goodbye

once longing love

This time your eyes don't seem to bare the familiar strength
you been staying away from me you've gone to every length
i did every thing i could to lend a helping hand
now your broken and its hard to under stand
this was no ones plan love makes harsh demands

even though i can see your heart is truly broke
when i tried to hold you i was just a joke
now things are changed nothing like before
i have become something so much more
a ache still nags deep within my core a life left in ashes spread upon the floor

i wonder where you ll go who you ll see
i wonder if the only thing you think about is me
the empty hole of things left unsaid
a wall of noise stands strong in my head
some how this feel like I'm dead but I'm watching in you go instead

how many times could i try to be the one you needed but i know it was the ego i feed ed
a callous soul without any notion of truth hope or devotion
farewell my once longing love

Friendship

Many friends may whisper as they
Stand apart.
For they are good friends who will
Always be close at heart.
Some friends may stay and some
Friends will go,
It matters how much they know.
Having a friendship is like a treasure
That can never be lost.
Because friendship means there
Is not cost.

LOOKING FOR A PASSAGE

A wanderer displaying the American spirit,
looking for a passage through rough mountains;
before it was the famous Wild West...
now, it's the world's endless boundaries!


I bring friendship and peace,
welcome me, despite my beliefs;
don't look at my history, just see me...
as a captain sailing for another sea!


A wanderer displaying the American Spirit,
coming as an ambassador or evangelist;
I may wear a camouflaged soldier's uniform:
it's not being hostile, it's the norm!  


My music is something you love and adore,
and you sing it to make me proud
of my flag and indisputable valor...
then, don't hate me and shout that nasty word!


This wanderer is looking for a passage,
to break through the inaccessible walls of hate...
to mend what was broken and renew faith;
Oh, people: let me restore peace before I age!

Broken Song

No words 

,I know , 

Would fulfill this part ;

How hard it is 

To lose 

, or keep , 

A heart . 

 

How dangerous , my kid , 

To cross the mad highway of life 

Without a hand 

Of a real , caring friend 

 

And how does it worth it ; 

To go on fare with such a life of shed 

If we let go the dreams we love 

And just hanged with the gains we can get 

 

That is how no words , 

No roads , 

No dreams …

Would, now , keep on the look of how does it seems 

As there is no more chance ,

As there is no farther you ,

And knowing no shame in ware and love ; 

I merely wanted your heart to know .

Johnny 's Song

He was born to sing upon his land
Now he's resting in God's Everlasting hands

Didn't matter who you were
That voice you'll remember for sure

A voice that could shed many a tear
Or make you just want to stand up and cheer

Oh how'll I miss this one hell of a man
Made me today of who I am

Across oceans far and wide
Johnny sang his songs with passionated pride

Now he soars amidst his eagle friends
High above the rockies bends

Oh Johnny this song's for you
As I sing about your eagle friends too




In Loving Memory 
       of

The Top

Honesty
Can't you see
I lied again
Against your whim
Following I keep on following
As you lead the way
My lowest friend
How we meet again

Oh yeah
Oh no
Oh yeah
Oh no

It's the top see baby
Surely you're not all alone
Safe baby
The place that you call your home
Front seat baby
Maybe I'm lost
I don't trust a thought 
And i think to much oh come on
Come on come on say maybe
Come on  come on see baby
Come on come on say maybe
Yeah baby come on

I betrayed
You and me
I messed up again
Lost another good friend
Stop pushing I can't stop pushing
Down on all your walls
Till your broken again
To severe to mend

Oh yeah...etc

It's the top see baby...etc

Trusting me 
You're naive
Where do i begin
Starting from the end
Selfishly I keep on running and
Don't forget my name
I'm sorry again
All the words I spent

(I am still working on it)

Life Without Me

People have told me to just die
But do you want to know?
What would happen if I just said goodbye?
To my family, the friends I do have, and my life

Without me, there would be no smiles
No gratitude for me just being there
To help them get their smiles back
I am just a man who loves to care

For all my family and friends
I will not abandon them or let them be burned
I will stay there and console them
Until all their good feelings have returned

No one deserves that kind of neglect
They deserve happiness, courtesy,
Understanding, and most of all respect
I and just like everyone else in the world

Deserves that more than anything
So as you all see
That is what would happen to my loved ones
If there was a life without me

THE GENTLE LOVER

I'm the gentle lover,
  I'm a real delight;
I play this game until it'll be over...
     again I lead.


   When I can't doubt you,
   when I face each truth,
   when I run into you;
   when she hides from you...
   when you look back.  


 Some things remain so unchanged,
        their beat is slow,
    if all emotions are not felt.


     I'm the gentle, lover...
        very lucky me;
     don't ask for a thing,
       when love is here.        
    
     I'm hooked on
    this long fixation;
  feeling strong inside...
    not thinking of you.
  

         I'm never
     happy, or complete;
I state my saddest feelings,
      I have to insist..

   
    I think of myself,
    I give for myself,
 should I make believe 
      I'm so sincere?
   You ought to know!


     I'm the gentle lover,
     selfish and untrue;
     always looking sad...
      when you refuse
        to lead me on.


    Holding close, sounds sweet;
         hugs are great...
yes, with one one thought I'd go back!


     I realize, I can't
    be who I was then;
    giving up chances...
    making sacrifices,
     dreaming of love;
    seeing happy faces  
 that had more than you needed,
     to be always loved...
     ............................
     ............................
 that had more than you needed,
     to be always loved.


     


Entered in John's Heck Sondheim on Sondheim. The song, " Sorry- Grateful " from the

Grandma's love poem

It all started just as I was born.
You became very fond.

And from that moment in time we grew a very strong bond.
Now I know one day you will go.

And these were the things you would like to know.
I know sometimes we may argue.

But thats just  something we do 
because you know what Grandma I truly love you.
Thanks for all that you do.
 
And always remember that I love you.
Always remember that no matter
where life takes us you will always
hold a very special place in my heart.

Pure

Can't continue to play a fool
Why pretend I don't love you
Confusion as pure as perfection
So why deny I'm complete by your side
When every time I look in your eyes
Its me that’s reminded of real love in it purity
When you told me a title means nothing
But to me it means something
Still I knew you were my soul mate
In the pit of my stomach
So I said I would give us time to grow
Let our love and understanding mold
Because I knew from day one with you I wanted to grow old
Am I stupid for believing in such things
Should I have learned from my past betrayals
Do you wear masks
Only portraying to be 
Everything I need
Am I so naive
Does my love make me unable to see
Do you really deceive
Or is this love as pure as it seems

Our Friend

The faint blush of her cheeks,
We liken to that of a rose.
Her intoxicating beauty spreads,
From her head to her toes.

Her smile is a reminder,
Of the evening sun going down.
And here heart's inner trappings,
No longer cause us to frown.

There have been tender moments,
We've been privileged to share.
Also times of great concern,
Knowing not of her welfare. 

But God in his grand scheme,
Fit each thing into proper place.
Giving us a love for this friend,
Placing her in our hearts space.

We're now a couple in advanced years,
Knowing not what the morrow brings.
Wanting to tell her that we both love her,
Without conditions or attached strings.


Dedicated to our friend Shirlene

Midnight Lily

When we are all alone
when we don’t know where to go
we need to overcome
the feet that trample us to the ground
 
Some will persist to stay
others will fall for everything
if they don’t stand for anything
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
if you hold on now more will come
…they promise you
but if you always hold on
love can be true
leaf turns to leaf
live it when you can
 
We all fall into grief
 not all the same
lets be strong and rise again
show them whom you are
mortal
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
if you live for me
I’ll always live
and if u die for me
I’ll live everyday for you
 
Midnight lily; you are trampled underneath
as they watch and stare
waiting for a passion something to let you live
come and see what you have
come and see what you have is me
 
it seems to get harder
everyday
but happy can’t be happy
without sorrow

Till the End

Alone, so alone again
It all seems like a dream
Fight the urge again
To kill everything and scream
I'll lock myself away to be
The mistress of loneliness 
You don't seem to care for me
But maybe that's for the best

Friend

Take this heart of stone
Tell them to leave me alone
I'll always be there for you
And I know I'll see you through 
Till the end

Falling away again
My past at every wake
You'll never be the same again
This is getting so hard to take
Time is dying bit by bit
And I can't fight the test
It's just another throat to slit
But it'll be my best

Friend

Take this heart of stone
Tell them to leave me alone
I'll always be there for you
And I know I'll see you through 
Till the end

I'm fighting...the urges...
To tear them all to shreds
I will find...the courage
To make your suffering end

Friend 

Take this heart of stone
Tell them to leave me alone
I'll always be there for you
And I know I'll see you through 
Till the end

Break this heart of stone
Tell them to leave us alone
Your heart was always so true
And you know I'll love you
Till the end

I'll always love you 
Till the end

Show Me Your England, Ashton
Show Me Your England, Dear
Show Me Your England, Ashton
Now, That I’m Finally Here…

He Took Me To New London Bridge
He Took Me To The Tower
And The House Of Lords And The Privileged
As Big Ben Chimed The Hour

He Took Me To Piccadilly Square
… Rode On The River Thames
England, Is Extraordinaire
And I’m Glad I Saw It With Him

… To The Palace Of Buckingham
Then Again To Parliament
At Hyde Park, We Had Tea And Jam
Then A Pub, For Refreshment

But Of The Sights, That He Chose
The Best Is; I Saw The Queen!
The Next Day, When I Arose…
Why… It Had Been A Dream… So…

Show Me, Your England, Ashton
Show Me Your England, Dear
Show Me Your England, Ashton
Now, That I’m Finally Here…

Front Porch Stepp

I'm sitting on my front porch stepp
Me my brew my dog named Shepp
Watching all the lovely people driving by 

Some even stop just to talk to me
Others drive by thinking I don't see
Some on the phone just like they're at home
All of them so scared to be alone

I'm sitting on my front porch step
Me my brew my dog named Shepp
Watching all the lovely people driving by 

If I had my way I'd just 
Make them smile
Just to make them happy each, and every mile
Just to make their journey seem, worth their while

Me my brew my dog named Shepp
Watching all the lovely people driving by

Now, and again, I'm always here
And I know I am to be blamed

It will never be the same again

Just hope you accept me for who I am
Just hope you will understand

I am a freak

I am a freak

I am always and always be a freak

OH, MARIANNA GRAZIA!

Oh, Marianna Grazia...
was my friendly neighbor,
a lovely lady in her eighties!
She became a widow when her
husband died of a brain tumor,
he was a sailor of many oceans;
how evident was the sadness
of Marianna Grazia!


She had a Grand Piano, made of cherry oak,
not covered with a speck of dust, and smiling
she played an improvisation with style; 
and it depended on her mood! The rays of sunlight
entered diagonally and rested on it, while
her feeble fingers played the same, harmonic melody;
and her hubby liked to hear those notes enthusiastically...
that's how I remember Marianna Grazia at her best!


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
went to church every Sunday,
and passing by my gate, she always said
hello, and asked how things were going! 
She gave every kid on the block candy
and flowers she grew in the back-yard;
oh, I miss how you hummed that song... 
oh, Marianna Grazia!


Today I walked by her house,
the Venetian blinds were closed at noon,
I was overtaken by a sudden gloom;
her youngest daughter approached me
and mutterred very grieving words,
" My mom has passed away in a tragic way,
she slipped and fell, and hit the cement;
she passed out as blood gushed from her forehead."  


Oh, Marianna Grazia...
never will I have another conversation
about her experience in Normandy, 
and the stories of a nurse during World War II,
were as inspirational as her vocation!
Oh, Marianna Grazia...
look down below and wave gracefully;
life is not as everlasting as that love given by you,
oh, Marianna Grazia!

We Are Finally Alive

Breathe In Deep
To Taste The Tainted
Hold Your Breath
You'll Be Glad You Waited
Become The Moment
And Reach Inside
We're Finally Alive 
So Enjoy The Ride

Hearts Are Faint
To The Subtle Sensation
Waiting To Exhale
Moments Before Creation
The Smoke In Circles
Fades With Time
It's Our Turn Now
Together We'll Climb

One More Breath
And One Last Thought
If This Were My Last
Would We Get Caught?
Hold My Hand Once More
Watching The Smoke Fade
We're Finally Alive 
And Our Memory Is Made

Maybe Only Just For One

As the end draws near and all quiets down
The mood shifts to one of sombre tone
Those around wrapped in the art of conversation
Talking, listening to what the other has say
But the conversation dies down
We settle for the comfortable silence
That drifts in between like old friends
Resting, propped against a shoulder
The other with head laid on head 
The silence that passes form one to the other
As both drift towards sleep says enough.
But maybe only just for one

a december ballad

Do you ever feel as though
No matter what you do 
You’ll never be as good 
As those who’re viewing you

And the songs about the same 
To which ever day you move
Time grants you space to mood
And  melodies to sooth 

Yet you stand so far distant
That no one knows you’re gone

Having laughter next to smiles
Brings us back 
To being orphans as a child
I’ll sit next to you for a while 

Run, Run
As fast as we can
No one really
Can stand a plan

And no one knows you’re gone

Here’s to another chapter written
Impurities of a young one missing
Hidden beneath the stars 
I lost myself to comfort sitting at your bar

Stripped the strings from your guitar
Did you forget to show them your scars
Seems you’ve come so far
And they ask you, whom you are 

Still no one knows you’re gone 

“When all you have is you 
I hope you find yourself 
Along the way”

How am i supposed to care

you cut
deeper than i'll ever go
your words
undo these stitches so
your laugh
turns the world upside down
and so no one's around
to hear the sound
of me hitting the ground
and you hurt
more than these wounds
your face
in front of me looms
your smile
takes my eyes and
lets go of my hands
so that i may land
with my head in the sand
and no one wants to be themselves anymore
and having both two feet on the floor
is just enough to start to restore
the hinges on the rusty door
that only leads to sanity
you're living in a world
where nothing shows
and everything goes
just as it's planned
my thoughts of you grow
and only i know
how i want you to
take my hand
and lead me down
to the place
where your love races
with the veins
that over me reign
and yet i just hear the
strains of your distant song
receding to where i cannot belong
and over it all i cannot erase
memories of your face and these
words cut and paste
into my own thoughts:
"How am I supposed to care about you
when you're hurting yourself?"
How am i supposed to care.

Remember Me

Your soft, caring voice, I will remember. 
Your smooth, carressing skin, I will remember. 
No matter what happens I will remember. 
If you leave, I will remember not to let you go. 
If you are hurt, I will remeber to heal your pain. 
If you cry, I will remember to pretend not to know. 
And If I die, I will remember to lie in the rain. 
And although it may seem odd, I will remember, you. 
Always, as my loss of sight, of skies of blue, And I suppose that you always knew. 
That I would always love you....

Eternal Love

No one will hurt you while your here,
It's ok my dear,
Your safe in my arms, 
I'll protect you from harm,
I will always be near,

A hand I will lend,
Don't worry my friend,
Whenever you need,
Know you can come to me,
Loyalty is sworn,
My strength  is yours,

If your afraid,
I’ll be there to be brave,

My heart and my soul,
Made to love,
The rarest of gifts,
From the stars above,

My dear, My friend,
Take my hand,
My love can not end,
For it's apart of my entity,
That will last eternities.

Confession

I sit here in my bed of dried up tears
Alone in room, alone in my weakness
Sometimes I wonder what you would say 
And what you would do if only you knew

If I let you know how much I care
If you could see how much I need you there
Just if you knew how purely I love you
What would you do
What would you say
Would you fall deeply for me
Would you walk away

Could someone hold me
Can someone console me
Cause I've never loved anyone as much
Never loved anyone as long as I have you
Going back and forth in my mind
Thinking I've got a shot and feeling like I don't
Knowing you care about me but always scared you don't
Wishing I could say this but I won't

Sometimes I wonder what you would say 
And what you would do if only you knew

Well here's a confession
I'm stuck in you
You're trapped in my heart
Each day that passes
When you're not mine
It tears me apart

Here's a confession
You're so good to me
The idea of you not being mine
Kills inside
The idea of giving up is something I could never do
Every word is true

Sometimes I wonder what you would say 
And what you would do if only you knew

How It Feels

I know how it feels to be alone, talking to yourself on the telephone
I know how it feels to need someone, someone to talk to anytime
Have a person who will understand, put their arms out with a helping hand
Someone who will be there, someone who will care about you all the time

Sometimes your lost, sometimes your found
Sometimes you think it'll never come around
Then you know you're wrong, don't you know you're wrong...
...It'll come around..

You'll have a drink to drain the pain, and in a moment you'll go insane
You're making it worse, you're making it hard
Pretty soon it'll tear you apart

Sometimes your lost, sometimes your found
Sometimes you think it'll never come around
Then you know you're wrong, don't you know you're wrong...
...It'll come around..

I know how it feels when you can't explain your mind
You're running the race but you're falling far behind
I know how it feels, I know how it feels
But still.. I really don't know anymore
What is this all for? I really don't know anymore,
What is this all for?
This is for being, this is for living
This is for knowing, this is for growing
This is for being, this is for living
This is for knowing, this is for growing

Sometimes your lost, sometimes your found
Sometimes you think it'll never come around
Then you know you're wrong, don't you know you're wrong...
Don't you know you're wrong... It'll come around..

Here...Alive...Here...Alive...Here...Alive
You know, you'll survive...
I know how it feels, I know how it feels
How it feels, how it.. It'll come around...

Just add time...

Telling Me About Regret

O Girl, 
They are telling me about regret. 

My spices that reek in my kitchen locker; 
My friends smell it in my shirt but never see it on my lips. 

The praying mark on my forehead is a lonely pigeon 
In the nest at the doors of my stupendous grotto, watching the sky .. 1
Wandering its strange sight in the daylight, 
In the blue dome, in the heavy clouds, 
In a mountain top hiding the horizon. 
A lonely pigeon in the nest at the doors of my stupendous grotto, 
Looks for once to the laurel darkness, 
Then flies to the tip of whiteness 
And vanishes in the horizon. 

O Girl, 
They are telling me about regret. 

The people in my small phone index are a rainy forest; 
Its branches with the wide leaves, at the morning, keeps us from rain; 
At noon is a shield from winds and being hunted; 
At night is a clamber for every passing suspicion. 

O Girl, 
They are telling me about regret. 

My formal white robe on my fixed arm is a new road 
By which I pass through, filled with hope at the head of every new year 
By the side of the road. Tents are already fixed 
With its Gypsy wandering and the hands are the stranger's destination 
Stigmatized; they derail the extreme loads on his back 
And roll the wine, time after time, in his mind, till he was covered by dusk. 2
At the morning he opens his eyes "THE END OF THE ROAD", 
And clears out his bags afraid "THERE ARE NO EXCUSES", 
In the medicine book "NO PRESCRIPTION .. NO CURE". 
And I always get back to the road, step on the emptiness, 
And from the shallow side of my broken arm, the robe goes down. 

O Girl, 
They are telling me about regret. 

My spices that reek in my kitchen locker. 
My friends smell it in my shirt but never see it on my lips. 
The bird that I once gifted you, came back -- 
His thin bones now at the eyes of guests is the dinner's destination. And the 
people at the door of my old grave are twaddling and telling me, unbored, about 
the exploits of regret .... 
Forewarning me from the departure 
And silence 
And hope, 
Without seeing the worms on my corpse as sheets -- 
Sheets of bitterness and pain.

Everyday

Everyday I see your face
It shines my heart
When I see you smile
You took me from the dark

Everyday I smile at you
You laughed at me
And when times you are in pain
I will set you free

Can't wait for the moment
When I can see you again
Everyday, and one day 
Hoping you will understand

Everyday I thought you knew
What to say when you were gone
I just keep my mouth close
And all of us move on

Everyday when I help you 
I sacrifice my whole life
And I am happy to see you smile
Once you can leave the pain behind

Everyday
I waited for you
Everyday
I hope you will come to your senses
Everyday
I thought you will repay me
All of what I had done for you
But it did not come true

Everyday I look your face
I did not turn away
Everyday you come into my mind
I will have to keep waiting
For that one more day

That more day is everyday 
To me.

My life

I have been through a hard life
too much drama
a mother who don't love me
too much stress
my life is really complicated
I tried taking my life again
I guess because I don't want
to be here anymore
so much stress
I admit I need help
my life is crazy
I lost the love of my life
my best friend is worried about me.


Details | Lyric | |

I told you so

All I've done is wait for this
You walk back into my life, did i have to wait

I can hide my sarcasm well

Apparently so can you

There is a gap between us, well 
is it clear to close
A wall was built to close you out
some how, I told you so, seems to click
when all i do is be a friend

a respect i thought was equal
i can go away and hurt, or stay and be hurt
cant you be the decider

Grow the .... up

We are just loosing a friendship

you are all grown up 
its called pride now swallow

you will see how quickly things change
I know im certainly not perfect

we can hold hands till we grow strong

but i know I'll want to let go

There is a gap between us, well 
is it clear to close
A wall was built to close you out
some how, I told you so, seems to click
when all i do is be a friend


A fight can last forever
its a battle of right and right 
I can scream as loud as you, but you can hit a larger hole
Or you can break the heart that loves you

I can give two choices 
leave and have an empty hole
Or change and make it better 
I cant take this any longer

There is a gap between us, well 
is it clear to close
A wall was built to close you out
some how I told you so seems to click
when all i do is be a friend

Tears from Your Eyes (Seasons Finale)

The future through my palm pilot 
Strategizing my future 
Through this invincible organizer 
Murder reigns 
But I’m seeing true life through my murky visor 
Simple prayers, hopes and wishes 
Sympathy in a blind mans kisses 
Pay attention and we notice 
Without misery it’s so hard to focus 
Pleasure of being decomposed by flesh eating locust 
The battles in this life I lead 
Shadows in the night twist and turn in greed 
It’s all fun and games until we bleed 
Senseless, Ain’t it something 
How we became a dying breed? 
Tears in your eyes, baby girl its okay to cry 
Life isn’t promised and someday we all die 
Second chances taken too lightly 
I reckon you advance in prayers nightly 
Shattered glass, invisible window 
So insensible, the images that exist through Nintendo 
Stress keeps my heart pumping 
Guests leap and start to mumble 
Ah disgusting maggots, sour dough and dumplings 
Poverty and a bumpy road to recovery

Life As We Know

Life As We Know

The things that we go through are crazy I know.
It seems as if we have no where to go.
no where to go and no one to turn to...
but as long as I'm around just know that I'm here for you.

We've been through so much but in God's eyes so little...
We can't seem to find common ground; we're just stuck in the middle.
Yet with all of the things that we go through each day...
We always find it in our hearts to laugh just a little and find something crazy to say. 

As I sit and reminisce on the things that we've done...
We've been through hard times but we've also had fun.
Remember all the parties and all the fights we got into?
Remember all the places he said he couldn't take us to?

And do you remember when we'd get mad over little things that didn't really matter? 
We wouldn't talk that whole day but the next we'd be joking about who was fatter.
Remember when we'd laugh so hard until we both cried?
Remember when we'd we scheme together just to come up with a lie?
With all of the good memories: some were good and some were bad.
We must keep in mind that we have to live our lives to the fullest cause time really flies. 

We're crazy together; kind of like sisters and much like best friends...
Some will come and go but I'll be here til' the end.
So just keep in your mind whenever you feel down,
No matter how far the distance and how far it sounds...
I'm always a phone call or just a flight away.
And even if I'm far away; just remember that I'm here to stay.

I found the power to turn beauty to a pig.

As we sit at the edge of the bridge
Do you expect me to jump?
I found the power to turn beauty to a pig
and my methods are out of control.

I only pushed you away cause I love you.
I only hope to satisfy your smile.
In a world with endless possibility .
Is it possible to make this worthwhile?

Maybe I fight because I'm used to playing the victim.
Either way what kind of savage am I?
I'll put this switchblade through my  neck.
If I knew it could keep you from crying.

I Love feeling sad does that make you sick?
I find love in being sad haven't you noticed.
I love feeling sad does that make you feel sick?
Now step away.


I only pushed you away cause I love you.
I only hope to satisfy your smile.
In a world with endless possibility.
Is it possible to make this worthwhile?

The dawning of the last day was a massacre.
Is there nothing I can do to make this right?
I eight balled the neglected.
and I wonder why she hates my eyes.
No blood loss nothing left to lose.

YOU MUST LOVE MORE THAN YESTERDAY

How you cope, friend...
being sad?
Hours don't pass that quickly:
you will be so bored!

Try very hard, 
and win it all;
yes, they will admire you...
you will know for sure!
You must love more than yesterday, 
you will know for sure!
How you deal with pain,
how you sleep alone?
How dreams slip from you?
They are inside you!

Be ready to love,
receive much more,
even though nobody gives;
you must love more than yesterday,
they are smiling now! 
You must love more than yesterday,
they are smiling now!    

Be strong and believe...
be glad, too!
No one is against you...
everything can be yours today!

Run, to reach love...
whenever you fall,
it will not leave you;
you're on safe shore!
You must love more than yesterday,
they all love you now!
You must love more than yesterday,
they all love you now!

Choice

I live with the ghost of the promises we broke
And the fear of the pain and regret
I wonder at times if the words we once ryhmed
Are words I'm supposed to forget

You live with the pain of anger in vain
And fear that I'll give up or give in
I'm offering to make up for the pain
But you have to give me a chance again

Inside the confusion lies the answers you need
And until you make up your mind
The love of the past won't let you be free
And the love now is making you blind

Run away, walk away, turn around, stay
But do something that gives you a voice
Don't let others make decisions for you
That should be only your choice

So I wait, and you struggle inside of yourself
Knowing the truth of where your dreams lie
A heart in your hands and one on the shelf
Which will continue or die with goodbye?

So I live with the ghost of the promises we broke
And the fear of the pain and regret
But I remember those times when the words did rhyme
And I know I can never forget

Alanis morisette

I know you got my letter 
from years ago
the one about all my problems 
and the crush i had on you
about my dresser and my mispelled name
and what slide meant to me and why

I should be accountable
but im not sure what im supposed to do
ive heard you
and understand your sick of your voice and why
ive even tried joining your fan club
but i think that fell through

I told u about my friend sherri shepherd and her family
and how they blindly ylead eachother 
but im not allowed to be her friend

Im not sure what id do if i was in your shoes
recieving a letter from a child fan
telling a stranger their suicidal tendencies
and molestations and abuse at home
and their witchcraft circle and strange experiences that involved
making love to a famous artist before their career had changed

Alanis
its like unexplainable to me
what you are
a reminder of a mother figure i never knew
a saving grace when the angels seemed soo far away
and i understand all of ur lyrics from im not ur mother 
i diont carry you in my womb for nine months
to not the doctor
and now i wonder if im like an adopted 27 year old 
life lesson 
object to crave 
side project 
toy
you never wanted but got handed
and passed with flying colors

even though a few of your lyrics are two edged swords
im not sure what i wrote and sent off to you
but by the time you read it and wrote that song a lot had changed

i spoke of love like yours
and the help i needed and how i was fascinated with you
things i needed help with no one else could
i dont remember what i wrote
i think i wrote marilyn manson one too

Thank you
we bruised eachother
and i know you did a lot more for me
an object to crave?
its there u know...and it might not be me
but if u want one and u cant find one
i can help u look, or show u places to start

life is strange
i cant fathom the loops we sent eachother through
and who knows what anymore
but thank you soo much

If Pillows Could Talk

she cries at night
with her face held tight
to the pillow to muffle the sound

she's tired of kissing
these lips that aren't missing , 
even long after she's gone

she's made  mistakes
and regrets the day
she let him move into her heart

And this is battle
that she knows she'll win
Grief over loss of
A love that's never been
A war of emotions                   
Fought under her skin
The line has been drawn
And her side will win

she breathes in regret
and comes out with contempt
for the faces and places that brought her to this

She tired of breaking
This frontline defenses
To a heart cut out of stone

I guess jesse was right
what they call love is risk
but i never knew that it could come this

And this is battle
that she knows she'll win
Grief over loss of
A love that's never been
A war of emotions                    
Fought under her skin
The line has been drawn
And her side will win

With troops at her back
That she knows are friends  
This is a battle
that she know she'll win
A War of emotions       
Fought Under Her Skin    
The line has been drawn
And her side will win

We're troops at your back
And we are your friends
We're more than just willing
To fight till the end
Arms loaded and ready
Your broken heart to defend
We've crossed the line
To your battle within

And this is battle
that she knows she'll win
Grief over loss of
A love that's never been
A war of emotions                    
Fought under her skin
The line has been drawn
And her side will win

snow falling

there is snow falling all over the ground,
on trees, benches and even a childs head.
snow falls every winter you see,
it brings happyness to some people,
that like to be joyful and jolly.

Snow faling is a feeling for christmas,
 and gets us in the right spirit for the holidays.
snow is such a magical thingy,
and if u just don't believe,
then ask frosty - the snow man- lol

One Day

We've been through
Roughening waves,
But we sat and never threw
Ourselves out of furious rave.

One day my heart
Will be glad that
We haven't yet fallen apart
And are not as sad as before.

Our time was like a boat...
No matter where we went,
Our time was well spent,
Even while we continuously float.

One day you'll be as happy
As you were in that rural place.
We'll together repair our broken vase.
You and I were inseparable friends...

So I wished it didn't end.
Our bond has been fragile
For quite some while.
I've been thinking of ridding it...

Though I know
I'll resolve it all somehow.
So I hope you will accept the flora
I shall give to you one day...

I'll Live Forever!

Thinkin’ back I wonder how my life had begun.
Father told me, " Well it began with the rising sun."
I asked my father, " When will it be done?"
He said, "Boy, it’ll be done when you have no fun!"

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!

Thinkin’ back I wonder where my friends had gone
They said, "To the liquor we’ve been drawn!
Drinkin’ too much and passin’ out on the lawn!
Not wakin’ up and headin’ home until near dawn!"

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!

Thinkin’ to myself I wonder where my family had headed
My mother said, "Well your baby sister has been wedded!
And gettin’ married your big brother has dreaded!
But don’t worry, I love you all, you’re tightly embedded!"

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!
I’ll live forever, I swear!
My death you won’t bear!
Don’t worry, dear!
It’s all so clear!
Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!

Thinkin’ back I wonder where my final piece had been
Blue eyes, red hair, prettiest thing you’ve ever seen!
Loved this lass since we were just young teens!
If I was a king, she would be my beautiful queen!

Life’s meant to be fun!
Don’t think otherwise!
If it’s not, your life is done!
Keep the glint in your eyes!
I’ll live forever, I swear!
My death you won’t bear!
Don’t worry, dear!
It’s all so clear!

I wouldn't miss you

If I didn't need anybody
I wouldn't feel blue
if I didn't need anyone
I wouldn't miss you
if I could go on
in this world all alone
I wouldn't be drowning in this world so unknown

I wish things were easy
as everyone does
but things can't be easy
when the world loses cause
If things could be simple
then you would finally see
if home is where the heart is
then please come home to me

I wouldn't feel blue
if I didn't need anyone
I wouldn't miss you
if I could go on
in this world all alone
I wouldn't be drowning in this world so unknown

I wish you were closer
you're just out of reach
like the heavens above
where no sorrow can ever breach
if I could only hold you
like I want to right now
there'd be no more sadness
there'd be no way, no how

If things were only different
and we weren't apart
I'd close down this workshop
that heals my broken heart
if I could only hold you
like I need to now
there wouldn't be anymore heartache
there'd be no way, no how

If I didn't need anybody
I wouldn't feel blue
if I didn't need anyone
I wouldn't miss you
if I could go on
in this world all alone
I wouldn't be drowning in this world so unknown

If I didn't need anybody
I wouldn't feel blue
if I didn't need anyone

Come Meet Mary

Eyes turned sharply,
as she walked inside,
looking so timid,
she was about to cry.
Short leather skirt,
stacked heels of red,
one lady got up,
and this is what she said.
Welcome my child,
we've been waiting for you,
follow me,
we'll sit on the front pew.
Where are you from,
sure hope you like this town,
you could have heard a pin drop, 
no one was making a sound.
Then the minister,
walked down the aisle,
put his hand on the shoulder,
of this poor lost child.
He turned to the people,
that he saw every week,
as he wiped a tear,
from his rosy red cheek.
Come meet Mary,
she comes from downtown,
I met her at a shelter,
still no one made a sound.
He gave  Mary a robe,
and handed her a mike,
and told them get ready,
this, you're going to like.
The voice of an Angel,
no music at all,
a glow all around her,
that everyone saw.
She found a new family,
actually, a new way of life,
and every Sunday,
she sings to her Savior , and smiles.

We are good friends now,

Shes the only one,

Breathe in Two Voices

Help me to breathe
When the heat pulls me down
Help me to breathe
When no hope can be found
Help me to breathe
Force a new breath down my throat
Help me to breathe
You are my only hope

When my voice is iced up solid
And the whole world is gone
And all the faith you put in me
Seems to be undone
When I’m suffocating under
All the things I’ve done
Help me to breathe
Help me to breathe
Help me to breathe so I can run


I’ll help you breathe
When you’re burning up again
I’ll help you breathe
When you’re broken on the ground
I’ll help you breathe
Drawn miasma from your throat
I’ll help you breathe
When you think you’ve lost all hope

When you’re quite and so cold
And all the people disappear
When you try to push me away
Because you’re over come with fear
When the pain comes back to haunt you
And your heart comes undone
I’ll help you breathe
I’ll help you breathe
I’ll help you breathe so you can run

The Meaning Of A friend

   The Meaning Of A friend

His old hands were cracked, weathered, and worn.
   His clothes were so ragged, filthy, and torn.
His old grey hair was unkempt, and in bad need of a comb.
   And I knew without a doubt, that it had been awhile since, this old gentlemen 
had known the comforts of a home.
 I stood in the shadows watching him with sadness and with awe.
   And I thought how much he favored my own grey headed old paw.
Well I watched as he picked up a discarded sack, containing food scraps and an 
empty soda can.
   And I thought to myself how degrading, what hunger can do to a man.
My mind started wandering what could have sunk him to this low.
   I couldn’t take it any longer I guess I just had to know.
As I walked up to him I could see the loneliness in his sad old face.
   And I wondered how long had it been since anyone had showed to him a little 
kindness, mercy, or grace.
I said mister I’m a friend if you’ll allow me to be.
   I’ve got a spare room I think will fit you it even has a key.
I’ve got plenty of food to share I told him, and that I was quite lonely living there.
   He looked at me and nodded, I think he said a prayer.
Well we shared that winter together he truly was such a delight.
    He sat and told me stories as we would talk late into the night.
He told what had happened, and that he had simply given up.
   How he’d lost his wife to cancer, I saw a tear fall to his cup.
As we stood there fixing to part ways, he said son you’ve truly been my friend.
   He said I hope we can keep in touch, let’s not let this be the end.
He said I think I’m going to see my girl, let her know I’m still alive.
   She had just had a little girl and I think she would be five.
Adios and God be with you and he walked out of the room.
   A tear ran down my cheek as I thought how we first met, and from that sack of 
scraps how this wonderful friendship it did bloom.
And I wondered was I placed there just for him, or just maybe he was placed 
there just for me.
   I don’t know but I thank God anyway, and that’s how this story ends with a new 
beginning for all to see.

Copycat

Why do you want to be my friend? Why do you want to be in the skin I am in?
Or living my life that's fitting me? Aren't you  pleased? Are you where you want to 
really be?
Yes we were created equal but you are you and I am me and it's the uniqueness 
of each that best defines our special qualities.
Don't shorten yourself by following the pattern I set; you lessen the chance of 
changing the earth with your own original mind set.
Why do you mime my time with your different flare. Don't be ashamed of your own 
skin or your textured hair. 
Don't waste precious minutes breathing used air, but show who you are within 
your atmosphere.
Remember it's cool and ok that you want to be friends with me but be yourself, 
who you you really are and then you can appreciate all of the wonderful things to 
share while you get to know....me.

Chlorine

It smells like chlorine, it smells like rain,
Summer is here, it's back again.
Temperature rises, hot days are here
Heatstroke's all we have to fear.
Beach days and sandy shores
Vacation time; we beg for more.
Water, pool parties, friends and games,
Every day is different; nothing's the same.
Pictures are taken and passed around
Happiness is the only sound.
It smells like chlorine, it smells like rain,
Summer is here, it's back again.

IRENE WAS THE AMERICAN GIRL

Irene was the American girl,
the only pretty one I should have based my romantic story on;
and that story is still unwritten...
not having been able to forget the rejection that turned into pain. 
Two bright and respectful kids we were,
growing up with Bob Dylan's intellectual poetry,
but mine was the waltz of a beautiful song...
with the words of the truest love I had ever written.
Brown and blue eyes would have made green eyes,
blonde and brown hair would have made auburn hair;
nothing but the handsomest boy or even the prettiest girl...
for us to love and proudly share for many happy years ahead. 

But who has been your darling since then?
Have you found tenderness in that man?

All good things come to an end

All good things come to an end
You never see it coming when it first begins.
For example love when it first starts,
And you love a person deeply in you heart,
But things come to change 
and you lose all fate.
so eventually comes all the love
that now is hate.

Or how about a friendship that begins very slow
Then there's a spark and it begins to glow.
They'll help you out through good and bad
and stand by your side when you're sad.
But then at times you overload your mouth 
and due to that, from fact,
your friendship begins to go south.

Maybe you got a job anf things was going alright,
but then your short hours went to working all night.
It paid a good amount of cash,
but when it boiled down o the end,
you were left felling like trash.

So don't think everything good will  always be the same,
Because all good things CAN QUICKLY BE CHANGED !

You

You could've been like all the others
you could've been so obscene
you could've been really heartless
when it came to loving me

You were really something special
you were my everything
you actually took the time to notice
when something was bothering me

You could always make me laugh
you could always see me through
you could always keep me smiling
when you found my red heart blue

I don't know what I was thinking
when I ever let you go
so while you sit there listening
here's a few things you should know

When we met so sudden
it wasn't a part of me
to be able to speak so freely
so silly, how could this be?
It wasn't like with all the others
you could make my heart shine
I'll always hold that moment
when I could finally call you mine

You were always there
You were always helping me
You were always so so patient
when it came to hearing me

I don't know what I was thinking
why did I ever let you go
so if you'll please, do listen
there's one more thing you should know

Though we've moved apart
my heart still stays the same
your memory won't ever leave it
like a tattoo of your name
It'll never be like all the other's
you still can make my heart shine
I hope you know I'll always love you
even if you're no longer mine

Can I Tell You (What I Mean With A Kiss)

When I woke up this morning
and I saw your smile
That's something 
I haven't seen in awhile

Don't you know how much I love you
Don't you know how much I care
Come on my love
Come over here

Can I tell you
what I mean with a kiss
Maybe there's something
that you know you miss

Don't be afraid to tell me
when something is wrong
Don't just sit there 
listening to a sad song

We've been together
for many years
I've seen laughter
and I've seen tears

You can talk to me
when you need a friend
Cause baby
I'm yours to the end

Can I tell you
what I mean with a kiss
Maybe there's something
that you know you miss

Time To Heal

Looking deep inside
I try to find the answers
to all the things that are
tearing at my heart.

I am seeking truth
and praying for redemption
but I need time to heal
for I've been torn apart.

I want to leave the hurt
that I have known behind me
sear the bleeding wounds,
so many still remain.

Even though the scars
may be thick upon me
they are only scars
if I live through the pain.

I am on my knees
begging for sweet mercy
praying for the life
of my dying soul.

Just let me rest a while
within your tender caring
so I can gain the strength
to reach my final goal.

Through the dark of night
the storm may keep on raging
but when the morning comes
the day just might be clear.

Then I'll be on my way
heading toward my future
and in my beating heart
I will hold you near.

Is It You

A True Friend

One day a lucky star dropped on the earth,
And asked me what do you want?
Atrue friend or a million dollars,
Or either of the none?

I said a million dollars would I take,
For a nice future for me to make,
As I already have you-
Who forever did my happiness sew.

He is one of my friends I am lucky to get-
To lend his helping hand he is never too late;
He is the one I can never hate-
He is my buddy since my childhood days.

I wish I have you for the rest of the life;
Let our friendship go more ripe;
When we rest in peace let's do together--
And wish we be like this ,times and after.

Its for sure 
He will shine
As the best 
Amongst the nine!!!

if u don't know

And even if 
You don’t know for sure
I’m willing to 
Let you go 

She said
I want to know where you are
I want to go where you aren’t 

I paint the city a lovely tale
I string together 
The pieces of those
Left behind

And even though it’s wrong
I leave you my flaws 
Awkward designs
In a royal song

And even if 
You don’t know for sure
I’m willing to 
Let you go 

She said 
I want to know where you are
I want to go where you aren’t 

My mother of worries
A passage of suicide
Qualms for care
My days for lease 
My hours for rent

Haven’t you heard
Grace won’t choose your soul
But the choice is yours
Spend it before time mends you old

So You're Getting Older

Ah! Another birthday is 
About to be upon you again
It is so close 
But don't feel too frighten 
My friend.

We all have them
Or either we don't
We are here or 
Of course already gone.

But these birthdays 
Lordy why must it be
We wake up one morning 
And they have affected 
The way we see.

We kid ourselves thinking 
Our eyes will focus back
We deny it is time for permanent glasses 
Although we know it has to be.

We wake up one morning
And our joints feel kinda weird
They feel like something
Walked on them during our sleep
Like something attacked our body
But Lord what could it have been?

Then one day you get up and 
Your skin doesn't feel as tight
Feels like maybe it loosen
Up during the night.

Next thing you know 
You're paying more attention
To your bodily functions
Hoping they will remain in tact
Talking to them more often
Thinking that will keep them
On the right track.

Let's don't forget our memory
Somedays it plays little games
It likes "Hide and Seek" 
And at any time 
Off it may go in a run!
Leaving you thnking
This time it is gone for good. 


Oh but be not afraid
For there are alot of others
Among you
About the same age.

Some may seem more livelier
Or some may seem more dead
But they are all headed down
That path called 
The "Elderly".

So here's to you 
On the 18th day of November
Happy Birthday and may you have 
Many more to come.
Don't worry about getting old
For I have been told it was 
Alot of fun!!!!

Who knows maybe one day
A national holiday
This day may become.
You may set a record
By growing old in numbers
But remaining always young!

I Don't Want You To Think

I don't want you to think that it's your fault
Because it's not
Things just didn't turn out the way I planned
I don't want you to think that you're a bad guy
Because you're not
Someone will be lucky to have you as their man

I don't want you to think I'm doing this to be mean
Because I'm not
I just don't want our relationship to be a lie
I don't want you to think I have no heart 
Because I do
You just don't know how hard this is, saying goodbye.

Looking

Love is what I'm looking for,
but every time I walk out that door,
I know that there's going to be a new failure to explore,
making my life that much more difficult,
and having myself to fault,
but knowing that love is still out there,
means that nothing else will compare,
driving me to go out and find that love,
and hoping I will have my hug.

despair

At first it was despair and grief
now I wanna kill everything I see
from the green trees to the  whales in the sea
Take a barrel of oil for every mating fish
and a gun for every new born fawn
a back hand for every chick
that ever had the courage to hurt someone
 
 WHY?!!!!!???????

you dont know what you've done to make me feel this way
open your eyes maybe you'll understand one day
I was there for you when nobody was
somebody "better" comes along and thats all It was
you say i'm special, you tell me i'm different
than what's the goddamn difference between me and him
you say its alright just know I never committed a loyalty sin

Reach Out (You Can!)

Reach out and touch someone’s hand.
This will make the world a better place.
You can!

Reach out and help someone’s life plan.
This will help you find your life’s purpose.
You can!

Reach out and leave the surface of your home.
This will make you well-known.
You can!

Reach out and touch someone’s hand.
This will make the world a better place.
You can!

In This Lifetime

Some people are given to us for a reason
They stay for a while, maybe a season.
Lots will leave with just an airy good-bye
Others will stay, and with us, they'll cry.
The ones who stay leave footprints on our hearts
They treasure little friendships that never grow apart.
Though they only show up from time to time,
I'm happy to say that you're here and you're mine.
In this lifetime, I've met good friends, however few,
But I've never met anyone quite like you.

The Cradle Song

When your dreams are suppressed
 I am here don’t be depressed
When you feel like dropping a tear
Go ahead release your fear

There are too many ways to heal a broken heart
But there a re too little ways to make a new start
All you can do is to listen as nature sings the cradle song
Even if for a while you will realize that you are strong

When the wind is pushing you
I am here to help you pull through
When your eyes cannot see
I help you get to where you want to be

There are too many ways to heal a broken heart
But there a re too little ways to make a new start
Al you can do is to listen as nature sings the cradle song
Even if for a while you will realize that you are strong

Your journey is not that easy my friend
I know it’s time for this nightmare to end
Close your eyes and feel my cradle song
I’m sure I’ll be with you before long

There are too many ways to heal a broken heart
But there a re too little ways to make a new start
Al you can do is to listen as nature sings the cradle song
Even if for a while you will realize that you are strong

Sleep tight
Let me kiss you one last goodnight
One last goodbye
Through this lullaby

Aunt Beryl, Your Last Journey

Now your struggles are ended,
Of body and mind.
May your battles be remembered, 
With our passing time.

For years you had suffered,
Pain capturing your will,
Destroying all promises,
Of the day you would be healed.

We' re shared precious moments,
And at time revealing our fears,
We talked of those days we'd,
Soon be over the hill.

I felt in your footsteps,
And saw you in mine,
Those times we discussed,
Your life with pain,
And I with mine.

I've thought of you often,
And even at times did shed a tear,
I had ask our Creator to look upon you,
As "special" and let your remaining days,
Be free of all your pains and fears.

You told me of some good times,
And even shared some of your blues,
I've seen the tracks of loneliness,
Thru a blinded tear or two.

We both knew our days were not forever,
And our stories would have to end.
I'll cherish those times we opened our hearts,
And in sharing our pains,
We both found a friend.

Your body and spirit are parted now,
Each going their own seperate way,
A journey I think you welcomed,
After so many darken days.

Friends, as well as loved ones,
Knew of your kindness within,
We now mourn for your departure,
For life's battle, you did not win.

Now your body free of pain at last,
Now peace will live with you forever,
In that bright glorious land.

Remember?  I told you of a tunnel?
Not to far away from here?
And that bright light was waiting...
And what peace you would find within.

Now you know I have been there,
For before you it all appears,
Just as I told you,
The bright light will dry your tears.

Now I know not of this other world you are in,
I only know of the journey,
Of which you have been.

When you reunited with our Maker,
I know your final home you found,
May God walk with you,
As you explore those Heavenly grounds.

Aunt Beryl I will miss you,
And think of you often....
YOU know I realized THEY were real,
And would some day separate your body from your soul.

Close your eyes and welcome your sweet rest,
For time is of no more.

Your loved ones all gathered,
With sorrow showing about,
Unbound tears fell as soft raindrops, seeming as tho,
They wanted to shout.

 The flowers beautifully laid about you all aglow,
Your beauty giving inspiration,
As if for them to grow.

With life gone from your body,
And the spirit from your soul,
I now feel your story must be told.

Unfinished Rooms

This morning wakes, with a celebration of memory and a playful dance of thought,
Pulling you into my mind, the sense of our presence in my mind’s rooms.
A time from past lives, for both, the sharing of seconds when worlds collapse,
Sharing, judging, evolving, flowing for moments, departing for now.

In my mind, the place that has been carved out for you in this world,
Holds constant, and has within it, such careful plans of magnificence, and has 
the scent of you.
Have you cleaned anything out of that memory hall, to make room,
Are the seconds available in your recall, can you taste the charm you passed me?

Had we understood the impermanence of these instants, would we have 
purchased a second more?
Were we aware and chose our own pace, our own rhythm, our own measure?
A timeless sense of your humanity caught in this room and adored,
For your passion, your delight, your soul’s love of self.

Understand that each word, phrase and thought, 
Has become me. I breathe each one, as if my own air comes from them.
I am more because of your existence and your disclosure,
A warm smiling calm is found in the remembrance of each instant.

This reflection of you I give as a gift.
In thankfulness and adoration for all that you have shared, have given,
Where you allow me to witness and steal, those flashes of your brilliance.
Know this extraordinary sight of you, sits as a spirit in my room, always.

Dear Snowflake

A snowflake dropped from the clouds
Unto our roof it bewildered the crowd
It is so sensitive and so sweet
With a heart courageous and ready to speak
It survived the heat and the harsh weather
For it is always prepared for any situation's nether

One day, I got to meet it
And enjoyed every moment with it on the roof's cliff
We talked together whenever I had time
As we shared gossips with one another's chime
Amazing were the moments with it
For they are candles always lit
In the pathway of memories
Stored in my wall of armories

I smiled at it as I passed by
Expressing the happiness I felt with thy
Yet, as the horrible news was announced,
My smile slowly hid,
For it was about my friend; the snowflake
I rushed to where it would wake
To prove the news' fake,

But, the snowflake shook its head 
Approving the news was true indeed,
I couldn't believe what I just heard,
Though it was said by my friend,
I couldn't let go and walk away,
I felt so lost and astray

The sun lighted the ground
As the tidings spread around,
Aches of sadness stroke through eyes
Allowing tears to pour with many cries,

Days are left and the news shall take place
While some ignore and others enjoy every moment in front of its face,
I can't forget so easily
For it is a friend that is sincerely
Signed on one of my pages of memory
But, I enjoy every moment I have left with it
Enduring every smile and laugh I share with it
For the news was:

" I shall melt by the end of this year and never come back,
  I shan't forget every moment with you, that's a fact,
  Yet again I have to leave and let go
  Leaving many beloved simply go,
  Remember me, for I shall never forget you,
  Remember the good times, for they shall never anew...
                                   Love you all
                                                                   Sincerely, 
                                                                            Snowflake "

Tears shall fly with you my friend as you depart
Into the wilderness of life you shall start,
Forget me not, my friend, 
Forget me not, dear snowflake....

Megan Image --For My Poetry Muse--

     Megan Image (For My Poetry Muse.)
It makes me cry sometimes
just seeing you or knowing you are near;
or somewhere else that I have never been;
part of the past but never far from here

Deep in blue eyes where there's no end to see,
I lose myself to life's great tragedy,
and you've become my very greatest fear.

Your image in my mind's forever part of me,
and has become the last thing 
                     my mind will ever see,
and has become the last thing 
                     my mind will ever see.

Please Say A Pray For Carl

I have a friend that called me last night
He called to tell me the biopsy had came back
Hearing the hesitance in his voice
 I tried to braced myself for what was about to be heard

As he began telling me the bad news
I felt my body weakening 
I felt my hands began to shake
I felt my tears swelling up inside
Oh God how I needed to cry

He has fought so hard the first time around
Doing each and everything he was told to do
Obeying his doctors
Abiding by all the rules
His desires to conquer
This thing called "cancer"
Never failed to show through

But this time his spirit doesn't seem the same
The eagnerness in his voice has not remained
Being the man of which he is
Has dealt  with misfortune
For many years

His childhood days brought him "polio"
Slowing him down
But once an adult
It never stopped him from carrying 
Life's heavy load

His adult years has been spend
Working and striving to pay his bills
Wanting hand outs was not his will

Now that the "cancer" has spread
To other parts within
I pray that God will spare him
For this is a good man

I ask of all who may read my words
Please say a pray for Carl
And may our voices all be heard
 
          And to Pam, Carl's girlfriend, may I add
                   Thank you for being the kind
                       And loving person you are
                           And thank you for loving my dear friend.

Unforgotten -2-

I've captured you from death's snare,
While others were unaware
No more worrying,
You are unforgotten

You are alive
Others deny it and leave the truth behind
Well, I most certainly know...
I will not end up in ruin

Instead, I'll remain loyal to you
because you are an unforgotten memory that changed my cruel ways
Straightening up my choices,
leading me to an easing and most pleasing place

Well...I certainly know, without a doubt, you are unforgotten
in my memory and best of all...in God's loving heart
You are forgiven in your trespassing mind that stumbles in repetitive sin 
 
You are an unforgotten cure to my throbbing pain
You're making me obsessive to you...sincerely insane

Though you're quite the catch 
in my sealed-up memory
You will remain
in a foolish mind 
fiddling around in flattering aspiration

You are unforgotten
In my flattered memory,
You are unforgotten 

You are a cure to my whole entire life,
unforgotten drug of mine

My Ragdoll Kittens Will Soon Be Here

My Ragdoll babies will soon be here
So tiny and fluffy as I know they will be
Their quite little voices you can hardly hear
Oh my goodness what sweet little dears

So playful, so funny, each capturing your heart
You will know in a moment you and your kitty will never part
Once you cradle this bundle of joy close to your breast
You will know you have chosen one of the best

Once it's rabbit like fur 
(As that of velvet)
Caresses your skin
You will feel the warmth
Of a deepen love began
 
Once maturity age they reach
When their laid back manner
Can only bring you peace
You will feel a fulfillment
Once where a vacancy may have been

For they will shelter you
And cherish your time
For they know your friendship is kind 

While quickly bonding  
You will know from deep within
You have met one of your lifetime friends
 
Go ahead give your heart a twirl
See for yourself
What magnificence there is in these little boys and girls

Buysellcommunity member ceecee 
Is where they can be seen 
A sight to brighten your day
If cat lovers you have chosen to be

Friendship Is Not Generational or Religious

I have a friend that I met from across the World
We are about as different as two friends could be
And yet we are both of this World
We are both the same as two people could be.

Our Religons are totally different
Our ages aren't even close
And yet we have this really great friendship
Who knows why? Who really knows?

She is young and Beautiful
She hasn't yet walked through Motherhood's Door
I am the old and Seasoned One
I have seen it all before.

We both have a love of knowledge
We both love learning about Time and Space
We are both bucking all the conventions
About what 'IS' a 'Woman's Place!'

Of what is true friendship formed?
Of what is it born?
Does it come from Tiffany's?
Can it span across the seas?

Is it in the clothes that we both like to wear?
Is it in the way we both wear our hair?
Is it in the words that between the two of us are spoken?
Is it in the ideas that we have shared?

I think Friendship is born out of a mutual respect
I think it is a mutual admiration
It is recognizing someone for who they really are inside
And not from what country they live in
Or which neighborhood in which they reside.

It is sharing laughter and sharing tears
It is talking to each other about your greatest fears
It is getting to know one another
In spite of the differences in our lives and in our years.
And loving every minute of it.

I have found out during this past year
During this new friendship's time
That friendships can and do
Cross religious and generational lines.

Personalities are the important thing
They are the things that really shine
Nationalities are just and only words
And Religious views don't even matter.

MEMORY OF AN AMIGO

The twinkling stars are over my head,
The shimmering sand is my bed,
The shooting star’s flare,
Does not bring me a nightmare,
But arouses the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

The light and colour,
In the open air,
Of a chilly polar night,
Bring me delight,
And arouse the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

On the moonlit night,
Calm and bright,
The dancing polar light,
Dazzles my sight,
And arouses the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

Reveling in Nature’s delight,
I am a ‘blithe spirit’!
Yet why o why? I know not,
Arises in the mind a somber thought,
That arouses the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

compare and contrast

Whether we where this or whether we where that. The girls that I’ve been with or the guys that you attract.

Any given problem have it known I got your back. I just hope that leaves it proven that a friend you’ll never lack.

Ever since I met you only good vibes you’ve been giving. You offered me your heart but mine you have been steeling. 

To get you gotta give that’s just called the cost of living. So if you need me scream my name as long as I’m still breathing.

It’s a shame that friendships die, so why not let this one last. Let’s keep trust and faith right here and let the time just slowly pass. 

If we agree or disagree it don’t matter its still a blast. And tell me that’s not perfect we compare and we contrast. 

The reason were this close is cause were different than the rest. We only speak straight up only real s**t we address. 

The special bond we have is the power we possess. Were examples for our peers and two symbols for the west.

You and I

You sing
I write

we laugh
I talk

we go to the mall
and we have a ball
we talk to guys
I cry
your there
for me
your my friend
for life
and always will be
no matter what happens.

Now It's Up To You

I don't understand what went wrong between us, 
Or why our friendship is in such a fuss.
I told you I loved you and I do and always will,
And to get you to feel the same way again I would kill.
I know you don't love me and I'm over that now,
But you stabbed me in the back and I just don't see how.
How could you talk about me in that way?
I never expected it on any kind of day.
I thought you were different than all other friends,
And would be there for me in dark, thickened ends.
I guess I was wrong and what they say it true:
People never stay friends after their relationship is through.
I wish they were wrong and it was just a big lie,
Because you still mean the world to me and for you I would die.
Even though you don't love me and you hurt me so bad,
I still care about you and will never forget the love we once had.
I'm not begging for an apology or a reason why,
All I am asking you is for you to stop making me cry.
I want to be good friends with you and close just liked you promised me,
But right now it seems like that isn't even a possibility.
I really thought you were different and not like them at all,
I thought that you were the one that would catch me when I fall.
Wherever life takes us, whichever way our future goes,
I wish you the best of luck with whatever your future holds.
I hope to be in your future because I loved the times we hung out,
I never want to loose you-I know that without a doubt.
Even though you cut me deep, I will always look and smile at you,
Because you taught me many things that I never really knew.
You taught me how to love and you taught me how to trust,
You also taught me how to deal when everything just busts.
Before I met you I was totally lost in a world all of my own,
It felt like I was trapped in a deep, dark, empty hole.
Then there was you who changed my life completely,
And for that I thank you immensely.
I have no regrets and loved every moment spent with you,
I just wish you only knew.
I wish you only knew how I feel right now compared to how things were.
It seems like we are now only acquaintances and "friend" is just a word.
I have shed so many tears-each one a cry for help,
But in the end I have found myself standing by myself.
So I guess I'm saying thank you for the times you were there for me,
And letting you know that I enjoyed every memory.
But now I guess it's fading and there's not much more I can do,
I've tried so hard to change it, but now it's up to you.

How Beautiful Is Our God

How beautiful is our God... 
And I shall praise him greatly!
His presence has blessed me 
and filled my life completely,

In Mt. Zion, he's to be praised... 
in the beauty of his holiness.
He's more than worthy of praise,
 in his glory and righteousness.

The joy of the earth...  
and beautiful is the situation...
To all of mankind... He's extended 
mercy and salvation.

He is known in high places as a
 God of refuge and shelter.
I will shout of his praise...
 there's no reason to whisper.
 
He is our God, and forever 
and ever, he shall reign.
He's is worthy of all praise... 
that is due to his name!

He shall lead and guide me
 from birth until death.
And his praise shall continually 
be on my breath.

Thanks be to God for 
everything he has done!
And  thanks to him 
for sending Jesus... HIS son!

He gives everlasting water 
that never shall run dry.
It is no secret how much
 he loves you and I!

By Jim Pemberton
Read Psalm 48: 1-4

LOVELY SIGHT

Are my eyes not dazzled
Dazzled by the brilliance
The brightness of your countenance
The countenance of your beauty
The beauty of an angel
An angel of songs
The songs you sang 
That embarked upon a journey with me
Into a distant land of sleep.

Untitled 1

They tell you the things that you should be 
Things that they think set you free
Let me tell you the things that I have seen 
Let me tell you some things that should not be
These things they're scars they burn inside
These scars they're things that I must hide
Rules, the things that you abide
Rules, are things they hide behind
You my friend are on the wrong side 
You my friend are trying to hide
You my friend are not alive
Are you my friend till the end
Of insanity
Are you mad at me cause I set you free
Then let me be
I'm sorry to say your on your own 
I'm sorry to say your all alone
Just be yourself and you will see
That they control your destiny

I Can't Live Without Your Smile

Smile at me for good morning -
I can’t live without your smile.
Give me the morning blessing,
Please, give me the little while.

And smile at me for good night
To make my night dreams come true,
And smile at me by moonlight -
Your smile is of great value…

Smile at me for all my life,
Don’t stint on your smile at me,
And each day  be nearby
To make my days and nights sweet.

Entwined

let the rays of time erase all that ails you from your mind, close your eyes and you 
will see you still are not blind, feel the warmth across your skin, and know you 
can never feel this way again, wrapped in love is not forbidden, so why must you 
always keep yourself hidden

entwined as we are, can one really see clear, a fading light or rising star, is it as 
far as it is near

watching you slip away, i know i don't get a say. but i think you should know, 
sometimes the ones who hold you closest are the ones who hate you the most, 
some conquer to succeed while others win to boast

entwined as we are, can one really see clear, a fading light or a rising star, is it 
as far as it is near

frightening is the picture when we find ourselves unsure,if you dont want to be 
the bait then dont take the lure

You reach, I teach

You're drowning in your fear and it cuts deep into me but i won't bleed.
 Looking into your eyes i have seen the trepadation materializing for weeks. 
You won't even utter a whisper, you fall so quickly to your knees and just look up at me. 
I place my hand on your cheek. your skin so soft, so delicate, but so cold. 
You can't help the cards that you've been dealt, but now isn't the time to fold! 
Are you alive or are you falling asleep? 
Get off of your bruised knees. 
Don't let a single tear fall down your cheek. 
Thoughts surface into my mind, but I have never thought that you were weak.
Lift yourself from this wreck, step up to the deck. 
This is not your last night. 
These are precious moments of your life. 
So carry on my darling, I'll always be on your side. 
From dusk till the break of dawn. 
Your heart shows scars, but you are strong. 
You taught me how to reach the stars, now I teach you to believe that you belong. 
Your purpose in this life is now yours to palm.

To Paint You

I can paint
You, in black 
And white
While the sky curls 

Your hair, with care
As swaying
Green of spring
In the garden

Blooms
Between orb and rain
Bursting 
In rivalry

Yet, I chose
To paint you, with
Lush of 
My words

Today's The Day

Today's the day, today's the day!
When you first felt air in your tiny air bags;
And when ye' looked at this lovely creation-
It caused the dance of prancing stags.
I know not but my beating core feels,
Your birth must have spread a peaceful palour-
On your motner's dead keen face-
A face where one can spy hope's trace.
So many days have passed;
You 've been brought up so meticulously,
Remember not amateurishly,
But with dedication of a sincere kind--
With a soft heart and selfless mind.
You 've grown up to be so beautiful,
Awashed with grace,
Veiled in a rich pleasantry-
looked up by all and sundry.
In this parky weather from the early dawn-
Amongst flowers of wishes I could only find-
This which I did pluck 
In your b'day with this humility 'Gauten Gluck'!!

Until I'm touched

Poverty striken
starving in the night
history critical to me 
until I lose sight
let me embrace your heart
under starlit engagement 
undisarrayed gorgeous gaze 
holding our love sacred 
through songfelt dismay
charismatic glance 
displayed 
though were in pain
today 
remain humane 
don't judge the Lord
until I'm touched 
love cry no more

Playing It Cool

I remember the day
That you told me you didn't want to be more than friends
I remember that day
Because you told me you didn't want our friendship to end.

And I was so heartbroken
Because you knew
That I wanted to be with you
My feelings were crushed I guess for now I have to play it cool

It took a while to see 
That you were serious about not wanting to be with me
And it took a while 
For me to end my fantasies of the two of us being we

So for now I 'm playing it cool
Relaxing, dashing, staying away from you,
I don't want to see you two
That's why right now...I'm just playing it cool

October In the Air

With colors changing as winter is in route
The trees stand proud as their leaves
Take on a whole new meaning 
Knowingly possessing the power
To capture my being.

This time of year is for all to see
It is a time for new life to be born
As winter is about to be freed
Slowly it greets us with each new morn.

The leaves must change
Their colors blending so 
Oranges, golds and browns
Oh such a sight to behold.

Enjoy them now 
For toworrow they may be gone
They won't last forever
Not like the words of a song.

Try viewing them with a loved one
Enjoy all they have to give
Breathe deeply as you look upon them
How many colors do you see?

If by chance you are here next year
When again they display 
Their beauty for all to see
Will you still have your loved one
There with you
Or will you have to enjoy
Their beauty alone
And through a blinded tear.

Individuality

As individuals in this present space and time
We travel valleys of the dammed
And are expected at the same time 
To enjoy and observe very closely the amenities within.

The only true knowledge an individual can expect 
From the adventures I am speaking about 
Is to travel the depth of this education 
And to recover from such a depth without losing identity.

The reward of such an adventure
And still recognize the identity within
Is the greatest of all.

Being the person that we are 
And exploring all avenues as we do
We have had to encounter the ultimate heights
As well as the devasting lows.

However my admiration you do hold at its attention
And this you know
The ingredients of my admiration
Only you can unlock...within our journey.

The space and distance between you and I 
Are always fulfilled with admiration of the other one
And self love within.

When space and time have to be shared with individuals
A label has to be attached
It becomes known in a category as companions.

The ecstasy of all companions is for the chooser to choose
The amenities within our companion varies each day
Therefore the true identify of oneself has to remain.

The degree of understanding also has a limit
That limit is what provides avenues
It is ones decision as to that degree of limitation.

This is why companions become a part of our lives
As an individual or kept at a distance.

I truely believe the attention we both have shared
And the reflection I gather 
Even from a distance
Assists the movement of time
And to me this is the ultimate height 
Without the agony of fear.

The releasment of all expectations
You do have the gift to bring out in me
As well as I have with you.

Judging

Oft times we sit and think
of those oppressed.
Of how they wear their hair
or maybe how they're dressed.

Have they had the friends or money
that we have had?
Are their parents any good
or are they bad?

We're not to look upon
the outward man.
But try to see the inside
if we can.

No social class or color bounds
exist with Christ, you see.
He loves each one the same
as you and me.

So never, ever judge
your fellow man.
But treat each one as fairly
that as men we can.

And though through our opinions
we're far apart.
Let's pray each one has Jesus,
within their heart.

mistake

I made a mistake
I tried taking my life
my friend found out
she went crazy
I can't believe I tried to take my life
I don't understand why
my friend wanted to cry
I regret doing it
I still try to take my life
I need help
a friend
a lover
someone to be there for me to help
someone who cares
I need to stop trying to take my life
I need to talk to someone
my friends
my family
someone.

Wasting Away

wasting away
fading with the day
no matter what i say
i cant convince myself im ok

ive cut off from the habit
but how much longer will i make it

without cutting
without crying
without bleeding

my purpose is leaving
life has no meaning
i wake up screaming
nothing left to believe in

i disappear
the end is near
overcomed by fear
lies is all i hear

caught in my mind
depressing thoughts is all i find

everything inside my head is spinning
the want to hang on is thinning
i know im not winning

hes all im wanting
all im needing
yet hes always leaving

i feel like i have no one
everything seems gone
tormented and all alone

im dying in my darkness
the pain the shadows caress

wasting away
fading with the day
no matter what i say
i cant convince myselk im ok

Crazy Dream

I sat on the bed and greeted my friend that I miss,
And she eased slowly my way to give me a kiss.
I quickly moved hoping that she would miss
I closed my eyes clutching the sheets in my fist.

Wake up! Wake up! Is this what it seem.
Wake up! Wake up! This must be a dream.

We're sitting on the sofa watching T.V,
When I notice her eyes were focus on me.
Pure passion in her eyes was all I can see,
As our lips met I wondered, can this be.

Wake up! Wake up! Is this what it seem.
Wake up! Wake up! This must be a dream.

Coming back from war, I entered my house,
Standing there she was, as quiet as a mouse.
It was my friend, who was also my spouse,
Greeting me with a hug, and a kiss on the mouth.

Wake up! Wake up! Is this what it seem.
Wake up! Wake up! This must be a dream.

Now I’m awoke, and thinking crazy things about a friend,
Memories attacked me, about what could of happened back then.
I had to be young, maybe nine or ten.
I dosed off, and the dreams came to haunt me again.

WAKE UP! WAKE UP! Is this what it seem.
WAKE UP! WAKE UP! This must be a dream.

From Me To You

Take me to that place...
The one where everyone's away
And the one where you keep me safe.
Hug me in your arms and say
Anything.

Tell me what you like about this,
Because, maube we can exist.
Just whisper in my ear,
And make me smile,
When no one's near.

You walk towards me,
And you make me see
everything there is to see.
Cause your standing in my heart,
And no way, will anyone keep me apart
From you.

Bring me into your world,
Where I'm the only one
And the only one who stole your world.
And let you see me,
And than tell me
Anything.

Let me know what you like.
Let me bring you a girl, who knows
That the rose 
You gave to me,
Is forever going to be ours.

Have this place to hide,
And not ever leaving a site,
Is exactly what I dream.
And everything is what it seems
From me, to you.

And forever is going to be ours.
This rose you gave to me.

Slave Song

There is an outhouse in the house
One there for me
One here for you
For I am black and you are white
God loves all his children, don't you know?
\There's an old bus carrying folks like goods
The back for me
The front for you
The weak is wrong and the strong is right
God loves all his children, don't you know?
\There's a colored church; there's a white
Free in bondage
Burdened and free
One cross for me, one cross for you
God loves all his children, don't you know?
\There's a heaven yonder, and so bright
I got passage
And you will see
The same heaven for me, same heaven for you
God love's all his children, don't you know?

Because

Because of you
I could dream of
Far away places
And a far away life.

Because of you 
My life had meaning
And I felt I made a 
Difference in yours.

Because of you
I was inspired to be
A better wife, a better
Friend, a better writer,
A better human being.

And because of you, I
Know that even though
You're not around anymore,
I will still feel you in my heart
And I will be a better person
For having known you.

Farewell my friend.

Red Rose

red rose lying on the water
red rose withering away
just like the day
you tossed me aside
and as the petals start to die
so do i

so i keep my eyes open
not allwoing tears to fall
i hold back the pain im feeling
i cant let myself crash
atleast not
not infront of you

but look at you
look harder into your eyes
go deeper down inside
tell me what you want me to know
tell me so i can stop the thoughts in my head
tell me so i can let everything die
so everything can be dead as you and me
well as dead as you claim it to be

oh red rose lying on the water
red rose withering away
just like the day
you tossed me aside
and as the petals start to die
so do i

and this time i know
i know its the last time
the last time i could ever call you mine

well you knew
yeah you knew it from the start
and still you reeled in my heart
just to
just to tear it all apart
but i guess
well i guess its all my fault

red rose lying on the water
red rose withering away
just like my heart

"untitled"

Trying to rush in this fast paced world.
Losing my mind, not knowing which way to go.
I have looked too far ahead, tried too many times,
to find what i am looking for...
Will I ever Know?
I have hurt too many times,
and cried even more.
I am ready to say forget it,
and leave out the back door.
But this would only cause more hurt, more crying.
So i guess I'll stay
And deal with the pain of my best friend dying.
I'll wait till the day we see each other again,
because i know deep down, you're still my best friend...

Today is a Gift

Happy Easter Baby
Today is a “Gift”

My heart, it jumped a beat today when I answered the phone
As I listened to that familiar voice, I couldn’t help but feel at home
As we talked it occurs to me, it’s like so many of our days
The clock stops, the sun goes down, and time just flys away
I’m honored to be with you, on this “Special” day
You’re my Happy Easter “Baby”, and it will always be that way
I love you with all my heart, your love is so true
When you take me in your arms, and again it feels so new
I figured out when love is real, you never have to choose
To settle for less than what you have become, for now you know the rules
Always be true to who you are and listen to your heart
Then you and your soul will never be apart

This poem is dedicated to man that changed my life 
I am forever grateful for his love and friendship 
And for every moment of sad and happiness spent on our behalf
And for showing me what true happiness is all about

With Eternal Love & Respect, 

            Rosemarie

When Death Joins Us

Tho you have gone now
And many came and viewed your remains
The numbers were great as we walked by
And paid our final respect.

I for one, as I know many others felt the same,
wanted to say "Robert get up and join us now
and place the mic in your hand".  

As I sat now and recall all the times I heard you say 
"Sold to number 400" and then on to another item 
You would go.

 I was that number 400 and I still hear those words
As tho it were yestersday
Those words will forever hold a special meaning in my heart
For a dear friend you were to me
Not just another auctioneer with a mic in his hand.

We had many dealings with all the merchanise
Going and coming
Sometimes with it even running out the frount door.

People came from near and far
Some even having to stand against  the walls
Some nights when the sales lasted too long
We all gathered for breakfast
As the laughter lived on.

Robert there will never be another one like you
As anyone that knew you would agree
You had a smile for everyone 
And a friend to many you wanted to be.

I for one know in your later years
You had found the Lord and He had found you.
You spoke of His love and what a joy it had brought you
And as always those about listened for you were 
Their Auctioneer.

The love you had for your family was always the upmost
As you spoke of them to your friends
A gleam would fill your eyes
You loved them all dearly
And this could never be denied.

You are there now with some others that left before you
Frank, Good Time Charlie, Olt, Cecil, Sonny, Ob, Louise, Dave, Hunk, 
Harold, Budda, Charles, Sam, Lefty, Phil, Gossett,
Your mom and dad they were all waiting
As you entered those pearly gates.

Robert you will be missed in this world
But we are all just a few days behind
Rest in peace now for you are in the Hands of the Lord.

I will always remember your laughter 
And the friend you were to me.

Home Is A Home

Home is a home...
Where family keeps love
Georgia is not my homeland
But...I'm home now

Your Kiss

When you kiss me you breathe air into my lungs
Reminding my heart why it should never skip a beat
When you touch me, it relaxes me
Confirming your love for me deep inside
Every time I see you, it gives me reason to continue existing
It is through you I live

Throbbing

This sickness is throbbing me.
It's haunting.
And there's nothing
I can do about it.

The way I love you,
Is way more than you
Know.
There's this version I see,
Of you and me.

When you do things like that
And you touch hearts like that,
It's really causing me to see,
That I'm throbbing to see you.

You're the trap I want to 
To fall into.
But, I want
This contagiousness to not ever go away.
I want to telly ou. And no hurt will hurt me.
This throbbing won't fade.
But...it won't haunt me.

Love's Christmas

Bring in the tree, shake off its boughs,
Discuss with friends the whys and hows
Of existence as you trim away,
Sharing together the dreams of the day.

As you carry the children off to bed,
Spare a thought for the Child
In the cattle shed -
For one good man, who wept and bled
For the sake of a better world.

So by all that's fine and sacred then,
Have a care for the hearts of fellow men,
For families, friends and all the others
Since beneath the skin, we all are brothers. 
Deep in our souls we know this to be true,
Be we Christian, Moslem, Buddhist, Jew.

We can be our own saviours,
If only we wish
To mature our behaviors,
Hoping only for this:
To subdue the beasts that lie between us,
To make it this once, Love's Christmas,
For the sake of a better world.

Toe to Toe

Back in the day
people thought they knew
me,
That i would give up so
easily but believe
That's not how i am
today,
And if you got a comment i got more
than enough to say.

If you want a war
Step to the door with me
And if your man enough
Go toe to toe with me.
And if you want a war
On the floor you'll be
The only way you'll beat me
Is in your dreams.

Go ahead and push me
to the limit
Fight all you want you'll just 
end up to regret it
It takes a true friend
to stab you in the front
But if you really want this
then i'll give you all i GOT.

If you want a war
Step to the door with me
And if your man enough
Go toe to toe with me.
And if you want a war
On the floor you'll be
The only way you'll beat me
Is in your dreams.

Open your mouth
insert your foot inside
You talk alot of trash for someone
who likes to hide
Can't even look someone right in the face
They all figured out your just a waste of
there time and space
And one day your gonna wake up and see
that everyone around you aren't your friends
but your enemies.

And if you want a war
Step to the door with me
And if your man enough
Go toe to toe with me
And if you want a war
On the floor you'll be
The only way you'll beat me
is in your dreams.
And if you want a war
Step through the doors with me
Are you man enough to face me?
And if you want a war
Maybe now you'll see
We were best friends now in my eyes
your dead to me.

Slow and Painful Joys

Dull hearts have gone astray
My euphoria lights the way 
The conquers will burn their books
Why am I the one in flames? 

Said we’d die holding hands
(I’ll suffered for you)
Now that time is past
(I’ve suffered for you)
I was always dancing in post-mortem  
(I suffered for you)
But now, not quite so fast
(I suffer for you!)

What does it mean to you?
Angels have needles, too
Swift was the madness
Ever is the sadness

Calm is the last word she said
Before she gave into her dread
The mirror always steals its truth
So why is she the one in chains?

Dying stopping someone’s rage
(Suffer)
From taking your smile’s place
(Suffer)
I will lay this all to rest
(Suffer)
For the flies to lay their eggs
(I suffer for you!)

What does it mean to you?
Angels have needles, too
Swift was the madness
Ever is the sadness

Give my afterword a bleeding hole
(What does it mean to you?)
So everyone will know
(Angels have needles, too)
To say themselves and stay away
(Swift was the madness)
I hope you can forgive my suffering
(Ever is the sadness)

What does it mean to you?
Angels have needles, too
Swift was the madness
Ever is the sadness

Afterward Depression Of A Breakup

My hearts been blended again
you say 'im sorry'
but i cant even begin
im not ready to forgive

haunted by your face
drawn by the memories
forced away by your hate

we dont communicate
you want nothing to do with me
when once you said i meant everything

i loved everything about you
there was nothing i would change
when i was with you you were all i thought of
you were everything i ever wanted

but now,

i cant think of you, without breaking down
i cant hate you, without loving you
at night i cry, wishing to be with you
i hurt inside, knowing you are with someone else

you said you wouldnt know what to do without me
but ive been gone for awhile
and on your face is planted a smile

you said alot of things
i believed almost everything
but now i dont trust anything

from your lips came so much
but it was just lust
now all you do is disgust

so much was said
planted in my head
i think of you as i lie in my bed

how could i have been so stupid
how did you fool me so easily
all you did was deceive

i could call you a liar
and youd call me one right back
but who knows the lies from the facts

i wanted to hold on but nothing was there
i wanted to love someone who was already gone

how can you be with somone when theyve already disappeared
how can you linger in the past knowing that youd never last
how could he be with her when once he said i was all he wanted

we are forever faded
although im still jaded

i feel as though i cant go on
i feel alone and brought down

im so insecure of myself
i hate everything about me
the only time i was happy was when i was with you

you gave me confidence
you showed me reasons to live
but now im given in
since you are gone now i have none

endless cries drive me mad
im running out of reasons to be sad

finally ive lost all will to live
ive lost all my confidence and strength

the noose has been made
the rope hung in my dismay
now where does my future lay?

My Army

I can't take you with me on my journey so far,
I must retrace my footsteps,
That I left so mored.

Long ago before your love I had known
I walked a path all alone. So...
Please be patient and wait for me,
I need to form an army within me.

With me they will travel, 
Where ever I lead
Belief in me is all they can see.


I'll chose them all, one by one
We'll stand together so all can see
I'll hear my enemies as they call my name
Begging for forgiveness
For their priceless games.

Why you ask must I leave?
For on my jounery you can't reach me
A mystery to you it must remain
Why at times I leave you knowing only my name.

Please be patient and wait for me
Give me time to form
An army within me.

I'll be back soon
But when I don't know
There's so many diffenent roads I must go
I'll travel them deep
But I must move slow
Retracing my footprints of long ago.

Cry they will,
But revenge finally mine
Their cries of pain
Never piercing my brain
Lost of all feelings
My army and I
Drove from a force
From deep inside.

I'll lead them with wisdom
Each step we take
Onward we'll go
Parting all gates.


I must return now to the sane of mind
One more battle I've won
Through my journey of time.

You can not come with me
When I go
For this part of me
You do not know.

Just please be waiting
At my journeys' end
Please offer your hand
And be my friend.

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.

In Search of You

Still I trudge on to find you.
Still I search desperately to see you.
Still I hope uselessly to be near you.
Still I wander aimlessly in search of you.
 
I hold my heart out to you.
Praying to all who care,
I pray that whoever is up there
Will carefully watch over you.
You are so beautiful to me. 
Everyday I miss you more and more.
Everything with you is so mystic.
Everything you do is poetry.

                And yet.......
 
Still I trudge on to find you.
Still I search desperately to see you.
Still I hope uselessly to be near you.
Still I wander aimlessly in search of you.
 
Waiting has never been so difficult.
I'm pondering what you'll be like this time.
How will I know when it is you?
How will I know it is you I am looking at?
What should I do just wait here for you
And hope that you'll see me for all that I am?
And  pray that you find me beautifully planned.
As I keep going I may never stop.

               And yet....
 
Still I trudge on to find you.
Still I search desperately to see you.
Still I hope uselessly to be near you.
Still I wander aimlessly in search of you.
 
 
One of these days I will find you
You'll whisk me far, far away.
When we reach our destination that's where we will stay.
You'll be with me and I'll be with you.
 
Still I trudge on to find you.
Still I search desperately to see you.
Still I hope uselessly to be near you.
Still I wander aimlessly in search 
.....................of you.

a bothers love

As I sat by my window crying,
With a broken heart torn in two caused by people lieing,
Thats when My Big Brother Dru,
Said Hey let me give some advice to you...

Young girl don't cry...
Let me wipe those tear out of your eyes...

Ooo....Ooo.....Ooo...

Then spread your wings and fly....
Soar like and eagel in the sky,
Darling sister...don't cry...don't cry.......

Younge girl don't hide...
Within yourself...
Dwelling on what everyone else has to say,
Belive me your Candle will shine....
Shine brightly when all else fades away....

So Jane, Young girl, My friend,
I understand that this world we live in can be hard,
Putting on expextations,
Limiting our Prasing to the Lord,
And so much more....

Young girl I understand
But trust me take a chance...
I'm reaching out my hand....
Beliving some day you will stand tall
As your candle shines lights the way...
Don't be afraid.....

Young girl when people try to bring you down,
Reach within yourself when no one else is around
To lend you a hand...
But when they try to break you in two,
Just remeber to warn them your brother is bigdru....
And thats when I hope you realize thats when
Jesus Carried me and you.....

Yes it's when Jesus carried me and you so 
 young girl don't cry.....
Don't cry.....

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
