Every now and then

Every now and then I come to you a climbing jasmine through the window of your heart a perfumed smile beneath your sheets a sweet scent in waking thoughts an empty porch of swinging dreams Every now an then I come to you a hush-hushed whisper on a restless night a drop of sunshine on winter lips a tender touch upon bare shoulder a yearning moment in ardent kiss Every now and then I come to you a melting snowflake upon your lash a silent breeze tickling your cheek soft gentle wind behind your ear a vivid memory a vision gone a lingered breath which once was here

A Lifelong Match

Spring is here - scents the air You've come from somewhere Moving in next to my home Your aura blooms bright n' warm I'm Already thinkin' here's a new friend I'm Already thinkin' here's a new friend                         Nice to meet a looker Show you all the best spots here I'll  see my world through your eyes Be free without need for a guise It feels like I've met my lifetime match It feels like I've met my lifetime match We sit under a tree           Your words sing harmoniously  Time flies too quickly Walking, talking, feeling tipsy Even from here seems I feel your touch Even from here seems I feel your touch Joking, laughing hours spent Licking ice cream - just content Folks stare - it doesn't mater Instant us just add water      You must believe in love at first sight You must believe in love at first sight Your image is ingrained in my mind A daydreaming guy am I Lost in you and me entwined I wonder can you read my thoughts As we lie under the sky Our hands touch and my face lights up Then you smile sweeter than syrup  We pick weeds you call them flowers I am the questions you are the answers I now know we are meant to be together  It feels like I've met my lifelong match I am sure I have met my lifelong match *************************************************************** A Re-Write Of "We're Going To Be Friends"Lyrics By The White Stripes (Jack White)  The Original Song is about a boy and girl still in school.

Sleeping With The Enemy

SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY

See what you want to see.
Don't Look at me!
You are staring you are watching;
Eat what you can't be..

Come sleep by my side.
The whole world is our playground..
Don't make a sound..
Stop clowning around

In the mist of the night,
You keep me from crying

I wipe off the taste of your lips.
You kiss me starting at my inner hips.
You broke me in a way..
I hate to say your love is better every day 
I deny you, the one thing I can't say.

You are my pillow.. 
Where I rest my legs,
Can you feel me~
This moment feels right
I just want to die here, 
Die here ~ 
Die here by your side..

I sleep with my eyes wide open,
I sleep with the enemy by my side
Come here and hold me..
After you watched my worlds collide..
Come here and love me..
I'm yours till the end of time...
You can rock me!
Under the moon and its rhyme..
I put it all to a side, how I hate you inside.
I can't let go,,
I just want you to know, 
I'm a fool in love with you..
Even if it doesn't show!

SWEET ISLAND GIRL

Early morn
Birds still sleep
Crickets warm
Not a peep
Coffee in hand
Dreams are free
Thinking of you
Thinking of me
Last night's prayer 
Has made it here
Rain soaked skies
Begin to clear
And what I see
On distant shore
Sweet Island girl
I long for more
Hear your heart
We are in tune
I love you so 
I'm coming soon

It Is Springtime In Heaven

It is now springtime in heaven Sky is so blue...sun shining so bright Beautiful flowers are everywhere Angels are dancing...as the harps play Here on earth...we scamper around Sky is so blue...sun shining so bright Beautiful flowers are everywhere We are missing the angels in heaven Angels are dancing...as the harps play They await the day...as we do also As once again we will all be together Our mothers and us...in heaven above Dedicated to: Our Mothers in Heaven and her children who will be missing her this weekend on Mother's Day To all of you who still have your mother here on earth with you make sure she knows how much you love her.

Kiss The Sky


Dropped some purple haze with Jimi -
we created castles out of polished beach glass,
then we fused with acid-laced clouds.

Kissed the sky
so high.

Jimi started bawling,
his torrential tears washed us down and out to sea.
Each drop of water became a pixel,
until reality morphed into a painting of musical notes,
and the music transformed back into a fresh reality.
There wasn't any more doubt
whether we were experienced now -- and how.

The tide washed us up into heavy crosstown traffic.
Jimi wandered down Voodoo Blvd,
I became a hoodoo child
gobbling up sugar cubes filled with liquid sunshine.
I watched the yellow cabs race by,
watched the heavy metal race by.

Jimi was jacked into electric ladyland,
his radiant smile, hiding pain
and covering other people's lies.
Even so, Jimi believed in his message,
sincerity set him apart from the crowd,
which is why he made sure
not to let his smile, wither and die.
But the more that his manager pushed,
the more that Jimi's pusher came....

Jimi was hypnotized by the flashbulbs of fame,
attempting to out-run a childhood filled with shame -
blowing out speaker stacks
with that twisted pedal magic,
spellbinding incantations
vibrated from his guitar,
making love to the sky with rainbow hues
of acid rock-induced rolling blues.

Jimi simply wanted someone to love him back
even half as much as he could,
for Jimi's love was honest and hard,
with wings waiting to be released
into a world not yet ready to be fully free.

Kissed the sky.

Kiss the sky
so high.

Sing Solitude-Play Soltude-Confetti's Song

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

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

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

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

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

Play Solitude...Sing...

IT IS WHAT IT IS

Sweetheart, you never really fell for me
Head over heels, you loved a fantasy
You had a perfect dream of who I'd be
I liked that guy too.. but it wasn't me
 
It is what it is, It is what it is
It is what it is, It is what it is

You never really.. gave us a chance
More in love with the thought of romance
You turned a blind eye to reality
Girl, I can flat dance but you couldn't see

It is what it is, It is what it is
It is what it is, It is what it is

You walked out the door, I let you go
God knows it hurts to reap what you sow
It's better this way, I only wish you well
But I gotta be me.. even when me means hell 

It is what it is, It is what it is
It is what it is, It is what it is

I've heard it said there's lots of fish in the sea
I gotta believe there's one fish made for me
So I'm sailing today, I'm not waiting around
I can not rest until my true love is found..

Cause,
It is what it is
    just the way it is
It is what it is
    just the way it is

It is what it is
It is what it is

WE'RE STILL WE

Just because we're not together
Doesn't mean we're far apart
You may no longer see me
Cause I'm hidden in your heart
I am the warmth in your sunrise
The breeze dancing in your hair
Don't think for even a moment
That I'm gone, no longer there

I'm singing through that sparrow
My fragrance is in the rose
My shade is under the big oak
I'm in the poem you just composed
I still see you in the moonlight
Tell all your secrets to me
I'm closer than you can imagine
Never alone, girl we're still we

*A father on his deathbed pens this poem to his daughter to encourage her when he's gone, to remind her that he will never really leave her!

HOCUS POCUS-WORDS, THE HEART OF IMAGINATION

Is imagination just a childish game
And is outside the box really lame
If there's no skin can love still exist
Is trusting the unseen a foolish risk

They say such fantasy can not real
Those aren't feelings that you feel
Your heart really didn't skip a beat
Words alone can't create this heat

Well I'm not buying it
I don't have to see
To trust the invisible
What it can be
You can't define
A lover's heart
What I'm feeling
And where it starts
Your words are magic
They captivate me
Hocus pocus 
Your soul I see

They say dreams are lies, let them go
If she's not present how can you know 
Sacred mysteries surely can't be true
No physical presence.. no me and you 

Well I'm not buying it
I don't have to see
To trust the invisible
What it can be
You can't define
A lover's heart
What I'm feeling
And where it starts
Your words are magic
They captivate me
Hocus pocus 
Your soul I see

I'm in love, I've never seen your face
But what I've felt can't be erased..

I'm buying you
I don't have to see
To trust the invisible
What it can be
Girl, I feel it
A lover's heart
From the inside out
Is where it starts
Your words are magic
They captivate me
Hocus pocus 
Your soul I see

MY BRIGHT DAY

He said he loved 
And said he cared
On my darkest day
Said he'd be there
The clouds moved in
The sky grow black
Never said goodbye
He never came back
Rain turned to tears
And fears to dread
Hope seemed lost
Dreams were dead
Last gasp prayer
The sun rose again
You walked by me
With a friendly grin
Ten years passed
And I'm your wife
We have two kids 
And a wonderful life
Been through storms
You didn't walk away
On darkest nights
You're my bright day

I love the way

I love the way



I love the way your gentle blue eyes shine

As your lovely face, it tells me you are mine

No words could tell, the love I have for you

It shines through me, so pure and sweet and true.



My years with you, have been the best I’ve known

Through all these years my love has grown and grown

I know, at times I’m hard to understand

Yet how I melt beneath our love so grand.



Until the end of time we two be one

Our love so vast it could outshine the sun

Together we two drown within such bliss

I’d die without your love, be sure of this.



Nothing could ever stem my love for you

It fills the Earth, the seas, the sky so blue

Forever and a day, this love in me

Will join us two together endlessly.

Twas A Full Moon Shining - Collab

Twas a full moon shining on a cool summer night And hound dogs were howling at its silver shadowed light. I heard but a whisper on the cool evening breeze, Twas the voice of a woman I used to chase and tease. Our love was forever, at least I used to think it so. Then came the day she left me; I wondered, where’d she go? If true love lasts forever, is this love not for me? I heard an answer on the wind - Son, your true love is she. A true love will always linger in the shadows of your heart Even when the one you love has chosen to depart. True love is the love you gave, no matter what the cost It will return to you again, for it is never lost. Like a full moon shining on a cool summer night With placid waters glistening in its silver shadowed light Love comes like a whisper on a cool evening breeze A gentle touch, a soft caress, a rustle in the trees. There is no bitterness in the past, if your love was true The sweetness in the memory is true love’s gift to you A rising sun or new full moon is not a memory And so will love come once again, if you let it be. Twas a full moon shining on a cool summer night And hound dogs were howling at its silver shadowed light I heard but a whisper on the cool evening breeze, Twas the voice of love’s song...answering my pleas.

This Song is for my Mother

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
I couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
A song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created and cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Memory of a mother
Shared my dreams and really cared

Long separated by the miles
Distanced from her golden smiles
Mama…
I know I wasn’t there……

For you

Would have placed 
A magic carpet 
‘neath your weak and shaky legs

Would have raised
A strong west wind
Let you breathe with ease again

Would have bribed 
God’s venal angels
Come and soothe your endless pain

Would have vanquished
All the demons
And bring peace to you again

Be the child
I never knew
In a land
We won’t grow old

Be the light
I always loved
Warmed my dark 
And lonely soul

Be the girl
Playing games
In a world 
The sun won’t set

Be the laughter
Calms my heart
I never will forget
I won’t forget, won’t forget

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me cry
Couldn’t bring myself to write it
‘Til this darkened day arrived
Song about old promises 
Made so long ago
Created….cremated
Ashes of the words I spoke

I broke my promises, oh mama
Now you’ve gone away 
I’m broken
Drowning in the pain each day

I’m  drowning…drowning...drowning…drowning

This song is for my mother
Let her hear me…….

THE BUTTERFLY FLUTTERS BY

I thought about you today
the sky was oh so blue
Wondered if we met what would I say
would you feel if my words were few
Your poems have me under your spell
the spring tulips are dancing too
I've got a secret I want to tell
a dreamer's fantasy of me and you

The butterfly flutters by
leaves me speechless, wouldn't even try
cause it's a feeling I can't describe
when sweet beauty meets the eye

I thought about you today
the breeze whispers a lover's clue
I wondered what words you might say
if you really knew I was into you
Your poems have me under your spell
spring's touch makes all things new
My secret's in your next Soup mail
a dreamer's fantasy of me and you

The butterfly flutters by
leaves me speechless, wouldn't even try
cause it's a feeling I can't describe
when sweet beauty meets the eye

In spring, creation comes to life
now the cocoon's an empty shell
I'm crazy for you, baby.. 
you've got me under your spell

The butterfly flutters by
love birds sing, I don't question why
It's spring fever, it can't be denied
your sweet beauty is in my eye

Sweet beauty
    ..in my eye

MORE

More peaceful than bright meadows
More grandeur than tall trees
More beautiful than flower gardens
More honey than many busy bees

More than I can imagine
Much more than I can see
More than I can express
Much more you mean to me

More lovely than sweet song birds
More breathtaking than a sunset
More tender than a moma bear
More amazing than the day we met

More than I can understand
Much more than I can take in
More gratitude, I couldn't know
Much more your heart to win

AUTUMN DAY

One autumn day
You thought we were done
So sure that I would run
That we were over..
But if you'd open up your eyes
You'd quickly realize
We're not through
My heart is true
So just roll over..
Let me hold you in my arms
Kiss away fears and harms
Touch all that charms
Until you see
Girl, we were meant to be
You and me
We are the song
So sing along
As rainbow leaves
Fall from the trees
And the music plays..
One autumn day

One Is Not Enough

Kisses, I want a dozen,
Hugs, give me a few,
When my heart is beating
I want it to beat with you.

One touch is not enough,
One touch would make me crazy,
You touch is an addiction,
One that drives me baby.

Lips, I want yours
Tongue, I want to taste
Inch of flesh and body,
Leaving not an inch to wast.

One look is not enough
One look you make me crazy
Feasting my eyes upon you
One desire is only you baby

Oh! I want it right now
One after another is extreme
You were sent to please,
One night I have a dream

One fantasy is not enough
One night what is in store.
Every moment in your arms
One minute and now I want more.

One is not enough
Give me all of your kisses
One is not enough
Fulfill all of my wishes
One is not enough

Asylum Bound

I'm not really sure how to explain 
This strange feeling with my feeble brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane.

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me 
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound. 
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound. 

I'm not really sure how to explain
This madness taking over my brain-
It's driving me a new kind of insane. 

Well, I'm not quite sure I can complain 
About the thoughts of you that consume my brain- 
They're driving me a good kind of insane. 

If I believed in love, then in love I would be. 
This bitter, cold heart is set ablaze inside me
Just hearing your name- I melt at the sound.  
Without you my dear, I'd be asylum bound.

If I believed in love, then in love we would be. 
You set this bitter, cold heart ablaze inside me. 
I only feel sane when you come around- 
Without you my dear, I'll be asylum bound. 

No, I'm not quite sure how to explain
This strange new feeling with my feeble brain-
But my dear, you drive me perfectly insane.

The Last Waltz

La dernière valse

From the skies
Clouds fall upon my dreams
I am up high, away from it all
I am far, but my tears still fall
I stand up and shout to Paris ( Pareee)
You left me, you left me here to fend alone
I can not danse, nor can I waltz
I am here, overlooking skylines of desire
Graveyards calling out my name
The clouds in the sky grey and dancing
The tour Eiffel stands up high
The symbol of all that makes me cry
I can not dance, nor can I waltz
Alizee Alizee go go go
Arête, arête my love simply won’t flow
Abelard died, and so must I
Lovers of love, wine runs dry
Poets and words, vices and crimes
Lovers of the majestic and the absurd
I was pushed over the ledge
In Versailles they left for me dead
Grandiose mirrors and artistic displays
I can not dance, nor can I waltz
So in the castle I will be slayed
By the demons of lovers
From the past, they do say
She left me here
On the left bank of the seine
So here I shall drown totally insane

Notes: I have on purpose used french spelling for some words in the poem.

Now and Then

Now And Then My heart still thinks about you – Now and Then -- My arms still want to hold you – Now and Then – And, even though I know you’re gone, Your mem’ry just keeps hanging on And I still think about you – Now and Then. My friends all ask about you – Now and Then. I tell them I still see you – Now and Then. Though you have someone to take my place, When I close my eyes I see your face – And your mem’ries, they still haunt me – Now and Then. My heart keeps on rememb’ring How much I loved you so – And though I know it’s over – My heart just won’t let go. And, when I think about you – Now and Then. I always see a love that should have been. My life will never be the same ‘Cause I’m always haunted by your name – Each time I think about you – Now and Then. Yes, I still think about you, Now and Then.

It Is Never Too Late


Being Young
What is "young"......do what you want
regardless of what others think .....
Young....."wise", inexperienced and a lot to learn
Not sure or absolutely certain
No duties and no considerations to take,
just think of the day
Free as a bird, spread their wings and fly where you want


Flower Power
Make Love Not War
Peace & Love


Spending the day with good friends, sleeping under the stars
Not sure or absolutely certain
Today`s young people are not so simple, 
there are liabilities - they have to go to schools
to keep up with modern society
School, work, homework and have time to social gatherings
They are not free as a birds, they can not fly where they want


Flower Power
Make Love Not War
Peace & Love


For those who are young at age
Being young, young in body and soul 
It`s never too late.....Fly Where You Want.....Fly...
Have a wonderful day


Flower Power
Make Love Not War
Peace & Love

SO CRAZY

Between you and me 
is a vast sea
Language and culture
not the same
So very little I know
of your history
But girl I'm so crazy
about your name

We're an ocean apart
yet I feel you
Paint from a distance
somehow I see
You write as an angel
your soul's true
Oh girl I'm so crazy 
how can it be...

That Venus and Mars
are so magnetic
The Yin and the Yang
do their thing
Sunshine and night sky
both romantic
Yeah girl I'm so crazy
I've got to sing

The song in my heart
awe and wonder
Close my eyes and ask
can this be true
Love's incredible rush
amazing thunder
Sweet island girl, I'm 
so crazy 'bout you

Fragrant Love

My Beloved,
      
If the Mediterranean waves, could carry me to your arms,
I'd wake up, to your whispers,enchanted by your charms.
If the Wafting Wind could breeze me to the your bed, 
Our longing lips would kiss and hiss,In hungry emotions wed.
If this love i feel, could linger in your Heart,If we could live
our dulcet dreams,escape from fantasies,and never be apart.
If "I "could be with "You",and "You" could be with" Me"
We'd watch the the Stars at night twinkling tranquility,
Sparkling in secret splendor,shining Our blissful destiny.
If we could be together,till the day,"Forever",I'd hold on 
to your hand,be your sufficient other,the  dedicated lover 
and  even your bestfriend.I'd be your daily listener,your passion,
your romance,I'd love you to infinity,till the Universal ends.
If We could lie  together on Gossamer  mattressed lands,
on threaded  silken sheets made by cobwebs' perfect hands,
If We could walk,laugh and embrace on gold warm Honeyed Sands.
If we could hear the sweetest sound of shells and pebbles play,
If I could call your name and hear your husky voice in answer
everday,If I could turn around to find you,looking my way,
If I could be with you,and live "the promise" of today,
Tomorrow I'd still be there,a Lavender in your grey.

LAUGHTER THAT NEVER GREW




Weary... my footsteps reach a dark alley
as gray light pushes stars into tender
tempest; notes from an old man's
weeping guitar choke my lungs droning, droning---
as if bitter bass of winds silences
my voice--- never to hear pang of a numb day
that holds this sacred dream I'll never possess.

 
Entering the halls of my mind, there she is,
laughing like an angel divine, shaping a lullaby
I hummed when arms cradled her when one
night's breath snuffed my child before her time.

And though without her, the young plum tree
that grew under her shade will always bear
sour flowers...its leaves and branches
reaching out to me with tender longing. 

Perhaps I'll water them one day,some day...
because without their blooms, I might forget
the face of my little girl whose cheeks
looked like their flushing sheaths...and I gaze
at the same moonlight to touch her eyes
then fold them to sleep. Opening the rusty door,

we kiss," goodnight, baby... I am home."

Words I've Never Spoken

Words I’ve never spoken
are those I’ll never write,
like words that might recall
the glow I felt one night. . . 
One choice lifetime’s fragment
I took for paradise. . . 
and for which memory
alone cannot suffice.

One summer’s whispered end. . .
your feel, your touch, your scent,
your lashes on my cheek,
the pure enrapturement. . .
your hands and hair like silk,
your pause to gaze on me
seem now more illusion
than past reality.

No words can bring to life
the fleeting ghost of you.
You haunt my empty hours;
there’s nothing I can do,
for if you think of me,
I guess I’ll never know.
And how you made me thrill
no words can ever show.

If she wanted to stay he would make her a place,
for he loves ev'rything that she is,
and he'd willingly give all the world and the stars
for her love--if they only were his.

But he likes it alone, and in silence he knows,
if he wants, he can talk to the moon,
or hear voices at bars, or the children he loves,
and if wanting to go--he'll go soon.

Or to stay if he choose, for the night is still young,
but she's there, and he's wanting to say
all the words in his heart--but he's holding them back
and the night is much colder than day.

So he goes to someone who's no danger to ways
though he smiles, he is really not there
and he wants to forget, but he wants to live on,
if she stays or she goes, he will care.

And the one he is with, sees the love in his eyes,
and she knows it's not hers anyway,
but the ones' who was late, and the one who will go,
and the one he will never let stay.

If he asks and she stays, he'll go off the deep end,
and he knows she loves silence--as he;
and she stays for a while, til the silence is deep,
and the end is the end that must be.

But she looks at the floor when he wants her to see,
and she goes when he wants her to stay,
but the words are not there, and he watches her go,
with the thought that it must be this way,

but he smiles in his heart--for he's known her at least,
and he's loved--and has found love is good,
and the end that he feared, he prevented in life,
though he wonders if he ever should.

And the journey is long--he'll look back on her face,
and he'll think, many times, there it goes!
and he'll always regret; for it's always alive,
and she's part of his life, and he knows.

And the others who see--feel the same for their own,
and they wonder why he doesn't try,
but it's smoke rings they see; or a bird in their hand
that is wanting to fade in the sky.

And the sky will embrace ev'rything in the end,
and the things that we see are a mask,
and the smoke rings that fade to the will of the sky
are in love--and the sky didn't ask.

Runaway with me

Would you pack up and run away with me if I were to ask you to today?
Would you throw aside all the past? The turbulence we shared? Would you forget the screaming matches and remember what we shared?

If I dream of this; is there a chance that it may come true? The answer is too much time has passed, and there’s nothing more to say or do (unhappy face). 

But I keep on hanging on, like a worn out Diana Ross song. I blame you; bellowing ”you just keep me hanging on”. 

It seems I fell victim to the powers of your kiss. I treated you badly I didn’t realize how much I’d miss. 

In this case there are no victims, there are only volunteers, and it seems you too fell ‘victim’, still loving me after all of these years.

I’d like to say I am sorry, but this is a worn out tune. I do have regrets. I blame it all on me. As they say it takes two to tango I wish now that I could see. 

But then how could I be sorry to have loved so passionately? I am the lucky one, that someone too loved me. 

I still ask would you run away with me? Take me to the justice one more time for a quiet ceremony? 

Walk with me through life as if this is something we ever knew how to do. Accept the others faults with no backdoor to escape through.
 
Grow old and gray together family at our side, the American dream they call it a wild, bumpy ride.

All of the latter is something we will likely never know, but the passion once shared will surely never go.

Its electrical magnetic charge is etched upon my heart. Those times when we were young and would just do ‘it’ anywhere, that heat that drew us like flames we didn't have a care. 

I ask again, would you run away with me?! Run away with me now!!! there’s no time to make haste. Life really is short we mustn't let it waste.

My beauty fades fast my love, my lines have become deep, my desires they are waning. Still my love for you I keep. 

Run away with me my sweetheart I promise I’ll be fair. I will love you to the ends of time, more than you can bare. 

Run away even if you have to wait until the dark of night. Run away with me my love make everything alright.

Dreamer

This early morn I woke up my cheek to a wet pillow a hot tear upon my shoulder cold arms on empty sheets It must have been somebody special who came into my sleep It must have been a memory which lingered in a dream It must have been a moment where other moments disappear It must have been his palms playing within my hair. I walked so closely to the window my fingertips kept writing in the mist a name i thought i had forgotten kept coming back in a sweet kiss I've put my arms around me believing he was standing there a warm breath upon my neck's nape Soft whisper in my ear. Last night I have been dreaming this morn kept feeling blue I wonder if in your world you are a dreamer too.

Her Swan Song

"You are a lovely singing bird outside my window. I open my window and you become a flower scent and a breeze that passes through my hair." ... Spun from the dark clouds from the night before I sweep away those cobwebs in the light of dawn. And I ask, 'When will it be spring again?' As a displeased Winter snows o'er the hedges And flake after flake they fall upon... Wish I could unpin my heedless heart. It has no wisdom to feign, A daughter of the wind in gloam, as those windflowers That sail in the breeze and they never be home. A spirit withered and leafless, draped by the icy winds, And dried up tears underneath the boughs, Those eyes once shimmered with flaming tints of gold... The hidden woodlands whispered to the south wind Of a breath ephemeral that pierced the heart of stone. As he skimmed o'er the roughen'd edges Of autumnal lands never been trod upon, A new life is born from the silken disarray, And he brushed away the wrinkles unaware That she was singing to him her swan song. ..

I AM

I am more than description
a smile and blue eyes
defined by the surface
where mask can hide lies

I am passionate lover
more than a poet
I've had to taste it 
before I ever wrote it

I am into moments 
more than minutes
chasing one's heart
not winning pennants

I am finding more 
in the least of these
random acts of kindness 
become dreams to seize 

I am learning to listen 
nature's whisper speaks
some things labeled progress 
in reality reek 

I am convinced that brilliance 
is found in less words
and that most of the experts 
are truly absurd  

I am a creative mind
imagination still runs wild
the world rushes to rote
and loses its inner child

I am drawn to the arts 
where emotion rules
where risk are taken 
wise are labeled fools

I am not competing
to pen a better play
but to treasure unique
go a different way

I am finding myself
where no mirror can go
connect to the Spirit
It's from within I grow!

A Moment

no words can describe it,
no talks can changed it.


And, as the river flow,
my love to you is over,
And, as the sunset rise,
all those love paid us our price.


while birds spread their wings to fly,
those words whispered you my good bye.

LAST NIGHT I CRIED

Last Night I Cried Last night I cried, because I missed you so much. I can’t recall the times I whispered your name before the tears dried up. I just felt like sometimes you don’t realize how much I care, And how bad it hurts inside because I’m not there. There’s so much love I have for you, and I often get scared, That you’ll get tired of waiting and go elsewhere. Meanwhile - I grab a tissue, wipe my eyes and regain my pride Before someone finds out Last Night I Cried.

I LOVE YOU

I understand the heart too well
Sometimes it frustrates so
It won't obey determined mind
Girl, it refuses to let you go
So keep pouring on water
Let it rain and let it pour
God I love your wet lips
Rain leaves me wanting more
So bring all the ice you can
Freeze me out with no replies
I beg you, please look away
Or tears you'll see from my eyes
If your new man is getting upset
With sweet songs for my pen
I promise I'll try to stop
But it's impossible to hold it in
Tell him I just write songs
That's what songwriters do
I know you won't tell him this
But you know that  . .... ...

MYSTERY

Mystery.. you've seen in me
it means I'm still alive
Cause mystery is breathing
the unknown the breath of life

If we let it all fly away
like fog on a sunny morn
The thrill of the chase is gone
the dance for which we're born

Yeah..
The day was made for walking
but we dance into the night
Mystic moon hold my secrets
there's magic in the starlight

Too many on our planet
are blinded by bright lights
They know all the answers
but they're losing the fight

We were made for more than this
reboot.. let inhibitions go
I'm pursuing this moment
moonstruck by you glow

Yeah..
The day was made for walking
but we dance into the night
Mystic moon hold my secrets
there's magic in the starlight

For Loves' Sweet Sake

We go through each and every day
With family, friends and foes but,
For loves' sweet sake
We all endure
The chaos, tears and woes

And so you think 
For loves' sweet sake
To wrestle with the dark?
Well - you will find that you've become
The bait - and food for sharks

The things you'll do 
For loves' sweet sake
Can tear your heart apart
And cause distress where none should be
Who now will mend your heart?

Now this you say to your lost love
"How could you hurt me so"?
For loves' sweet sake
I gave up all
But would not let you go

For loves' sweet sake
You'll change your life
And try to start anew
With hope, with love with charity
You'll face what comes to you

So now, my friend, consider this
And all you've sacrificed
For loves' sweet sake
You gave your all
Hey - was it worth the price?

Let's ask the One who gave up all
To enter into Strife
For loves' sweet sake
He endured the Cross
He gave up His own life

He helped us know how much we're loved
He showed us how to be
This all was done for us -
And more
For Loves' sweet sake you see

I am gonna die :)

If I had just one day left to live,If they tell me ,I'm gonna die,
I'd cover my little face in the palms of my  destined hands,
I break down and cry,I cry!and cry!and shout !I am gonna die!
I still have one day left,I still have today,I pray,and pray,
'Amazing grace'Today,I am not gonna die,I am here to stay.

I go at the airport,book the next flight,and fly,So High,in sky,
Knowing today I live, there'll be no highjacks,I'm not gonna die.
I search down an address,Get a cab,and go all the way,
I knock on a door,and If nobody answers,I knock it again.
I knock on a door,with a ring in my hand,I don't care,
I'm a woman,Forget etiquette,I will take a stand.

I Get hold of his hand,I gaze in his eyes,his caramel chocolate eyes.
I go on my knee,I ask him:"My Love,I have only one day ,to be with you,
Will you marry me?Will you let us live our dream?as John Lennon said,
Let it be,Let it be,Let it beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I ask once again,to confirm:"Will you make me part of your life?"
"What???"He answers."and I repeat,gazing in his  melting cheating eyes,
Will you make me your lawful beloved wife?Darling I love you,
Lets stop Our fights,Our fooilsh goodbyes,We are not "Sound of Music" 
"Goodbyyyeee,Gooodbbyeeeeeeeeee,Gooooddddddddddbyeeeee".

'I can't live without you',yet I cannot live with you,Its true,
Tomorrow I'm gonna die,I cry,and cry,"Cry me a River" I cry.
Now his mind had start  working,and He got a plan,
If tomorro never comes,would she know how much I love her ?"
He speaks once again,like a man:"What am I to inherit?'
"Jack the beanstalk's gold hennnnnnnnnn... clack clakkkk

and  there he goes again,"Ow quick,lets get married,I need to inherit,
I  promise I love you till the day that you die.Tomorrow I party,
Yes I will party,after I say,my goodbye.Only one day to go,
Thanks to Bob Marley,"No women,No Cry"No tears of Goodbye.
Only one day to die".... and She diessssssssssssssssssssssssss
She dies...Gooooodbye,Goodbye my Love Goodbye............
I never felts so good ,The golden hen and I....Don't die.

ONLY YOU AND ME

I'm lost in your beautiful starry eyes
The ocean's scent and majestic waves
Yes.. very quickly I'm taken by the sea
And etched secrets in underwater caves

I never would have dreamed it
That every desire could come true
I'm trusting in my heart
Beyond this blue 
Girl, everything I do is now for two..
A sacred trust for only me and you

Oh, passion's touch is on the rise
So obvious any sailor could see
If even now the tide crashed down
There's more muse for you and me
I'm so in love out on this sea..

Where there's only you and me
Only you and me

You and me

Lost in the World of Lonely

Sitting here in the darkness
With an old memory swimming in my head
I'm lost in the world of lonely
I miss you being here in my bed

Yesterdays dream has shattered
It's impossible to hold onto you
I'm lost in the world of lonely
I can't get you out of my head

Lost in the world of lonely, lost in the world of lonely
It's more than this used heart can take
Loving you was my best decision
In the end my biggest mistake

You smiled and my world brightened
My special angel who eclipsed the sun
I'm lost in the world of lonely
Where have you gone my special one

I miss you being here in my bed
The essence of you still swims in my heart
I'm trapped in the world of lonely
Wanting you tears me apart

Lost in the world of lonely, lost in the world of lonely
It's more than this used heart can take
Loving you was my best decision
In the end my biggest mistake

When you promised me forever
I didn't make any other plans
That's why I am here and lonely
I am just a one woman man

YOU CAN PAINT

You can paint
Of wanton lips
On starlit night
Once distant ships
I'll lift you up
Till light of dawn
Through misty eyes
I see perfect fawn
Your heart's emotion
Is written on me
Though autumn's rain
From distant sea
You can paint
A muse on me
Where we are more
Than eye can see
You can paint
Tomorrow's scene
Two lover's silhouettes
Know what that means
You can paint
Splash that brush
Sweet jasmine blue
Blossom make me blush

Pandora's Box

you opened your eyes but closed your mind
oblivious to dreams I kept inside
you saw the package but not the treasure
all of those late nights we were together

you spent the passion but saved your heart
keeping those two things far, far apart
nothing ever ventured, nothing ever gained
so good at keeping it all self-contained

you pulled the ribbon opening Pandora's box
you twisted the key in a rusty lock
you wound the toy just a little too tight
leaving in haste when you saw the red light

I thought I had it under control
I could play the game and you'd never know
you were much smarter than I thought
you saw the ruse right from the start

gently, you tried to let me down
distancing me with silent sounds
what you couldn't see--failed to understand
I knew your game but couldn't outrun your plan

you pulled the ribbon opening Pandora's box
you twisted the key in a rusty lock
you wound the toy just a little too tight
leaving in haste when you saw the red light

I could see your future and I wasn't a part
you weren't completely honest when we started
I knew there was another, but not the whole connection
how you had already promised your love and affection

so as we go forward with an uneasy truce
bury what's dead between me and you
no tourniquet will completely ever stop my bleed
you'll say you didn't promise to be what I need

you asked me once if the wound was still deep
you can figure that out in this song if you read
what starts with white lies, ends sadly with truth
it ebbs and then flows with each phase of the moon

you pulled the ribbon opening Pandora's box
you twisted the key in a rusty lock
you wound the toy just a little too tight
leaving in haste when you saw the red light

FOR THE LOVE OF WORDS

There's nothing better than words
So infatuated I'm Dylan insane
Watching movies is getting wet
Reading books is feeling rain
A thesaurus was my first love 
Same girl, but how she could dress 
You had a word for every feeling
Stole my heart I must confess
Money can get you to places
But it can't take you back in time
But with words I can time travel
Have memories that aren't even mine
Words are the pure picture
From the soul they're conceived 
They're a mirror to the inside
Unless their kidnapped to deceive 
Words can work their magic
Prayed for some and dropped a knee
She responded with a single one
Thanks to words she married me
I've truly lived a sweet life
Never fretted over the little things
As long as I've got love and lyrics
This world of words.. How she sings
Oh, how she sings!

Lead and I Will Follow

Lead and I will follow you, across the deepest seas
Sail on tranquil waters, on our quest for joy and peace

If you lead me I will follow you, onto the sands of the shores
Make love by the rippling waves
As I present to you, the gift that is rightfully yours

Lead and I will follow you, upon  majestic mountain peaks
Stretch forth my hands to capture stars,  respectfully place them at your feet

If you lead me I will follow you, deep into valleys low
Lie under peaceful skies, and watch the moon’s magnificent glow

Lead and I will follow you, across whimsical rolling plains
Stand with you under the heavens, as it pours down its fragment rains

If you lead me I will follow you, soaring the soothing skies
Fly in a world that is  free of fear and doubts, for our eternal lives

Lead and I will follow you, discovering unknown lands
Journey the earth as man and wife; I will happily give you my hand.

If you lead me I will follow you, my predestined soul mate
Walk with you on streets of gold, as we enter heaven's pearly gates

Share My Love

*******************************************************************

Come and share my love,
I’ll give you all of me
Offer everything I am
Give it graciously

Come and share my love
I want to lose myself
Surrender everything I own
Until I have nothing left

Come and share my love
Let’s lay the night away
As I wrap my warmth around you
Until dawn, turns to day


Come and share my love
Like you’ve been yearning to do
Your every wish is my command
I will submit to you

Shield Walls

They sat, huddled in the shelter of knees, wrapped in the blackness of night; warmed by the kettle's fire. The rise and fall of voices full of tales and minstrels tunes, soothed the gathering. Mist rose from the surface of the pond. Fireflies crowned the lover's heads. Some men stood like shields behind arched backs of their ladies. Some cradled dear ones between their armored thighs. Heads lolled as strands of silken hair, was drawn between calloused fingers which only hours before had held the sword. Upturned faces drenched in the red-gold of the fire, revealed china-blue eyes of Viking descent. And each weary warrior revisited in tale, the halls of Beowulf and the dream of Camelot for the day was meant for war but the night was a stage set for love and lovers.

I LOVE YOU SO

You take my breath away,
Smile at me, don't know what to say..
There's no words to describe what I'm feeling.
When dreams come alive,
It feels like, time is standing still..
Everything becomes clear and has meaning.
In that moment, captivated by your beauty.
Speechless, that you long for me..

Girl, I love you so
Oh, how I love you
How you love me so

You take my breath away,
Smile at me, don't know what to say..
There's no words to describe what I'm feeling.
When dreams come alive,
It feels like, time is standing still..
Everything becomes clear and has meaning
In that moment, captivated by your beauty.
Speechless, that you long for me..

Girl, I love you so
Oh, how I love you
How you love me so

Completely taken by your amazing eyes,
I don't deserve such a wonderful prize..
Our love's in the clouds, oh yeah I'm floating.
Fate brought us together, unexpected bliss..
Been captivated since our very first kiss,
Intoxicated by you, your affections I'm drinking.
And in that moment, the world is a mine.
Every thought feels so sublime..

Girl, I love you so
Oh, how I love you
How you love me so

Yes, I love you so
Oh, how I love you
Oh, girl I love you
How you love me so

Girl, I love you so
Oh, how I love you
How you love me so

I KEPT IT REAL

LyricMan can write a sonnet
Yeah, light it up with love
A work that makes you high
Take you to Heaven above

Make love, let's not do war
Why fight when we can kiss
Anger makes people blind
Precious life gets missed

Sweet rhymes with reason
Send a chill down your back 
Soft moments of passion
The soul's emotions unpack

Distant stars wink and flirt
The night sky takes it in
Love's such a fiery flight 
What a ride.. Again, again!

Sing you a lyric or a ballad
Can make a smooth melody
Let Cupid shoot his arrow
Into the heart of one for me

Love's lines are so uptempo 
Let your body feel the beat
I'll play your strings beautifully 
Your heart gonna feel the heat

Girl, you can be my stanza
I'll be your repeating refrain
Umm, all this back and forth
Wow! You're driving me insane

Hear the whisper in my words
Gentle touch upon your ear
Here's my heart.. I kept it real
Poem's done but my pen's near

IM READY

Like a little child 
who's dirty and unclean
I've played in the mud 
chasing selfish dreams
Guess I never grew up
A game, was kick the can
But the years have blown by
Now it's time to face the Man
And I'm not ready..
God, I'm not ready!

Then He says to me
Red rover, red rover
Son, it's not to late
You still can come over
Repent and come home
Olly, olly in come free
Jesus gave his life
So that you can be with me

Bowed my head
Still dripping with mud
Took me, just as I am
Born again, covered in crud
Tug of war
Pulled me across His line
Jesus saves
And now He is mine
Oh, I am ready
God, I am ready!

*Jesus saves "Just As I Am" cleansing our soul, making us whole, 
giving us a heart to want to clean inside and out!

Sometimes Heartbroken

Sometimes Heartbroken

I know I still love you
After all that you’ve done
You tell me different lies
Than you told everyone

I try to deny
The pain that’s built up inside
Though, even when I smile
My heart starts to divide

Sometimes heartbroken
Now that I finally realize
The words that you’ve spoken
Were really all lies

Sometimes Heartbroken
I’m dying inside
And I can’t seem to get over you
No matter how hard I tried

Now every time I see you
I feel emptiness in my heart
But then I remember
How you deceived me from the start

Even then I had a feeling
That this may never last
But I can’t help thinking
About throwing away that past

Sometimes heartbroken
Now that I finally realize
The words that you’ve spoken
Were really all lies

Sometimes Heartbroken
I’m dying inside
And I can’t seem to get over you
No matter how hard I tried

So tell me why
You had to lie to me
You may have tricked everyone around you
But you were the one who just couldn’t see

Sometimes heartbroken
Now that I finally realize
The words that you’ve spoken
Were really all lies

Sometimes Heartbroken
I’m dying inside
And I can’t seem to get over you
No matter how hard I tried

Sometimes Heartbroken
As I look back on this
I find that I’m no longer broken
As these words pass my lips

Sometimes Heartbroken

WORTH THE LONG

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

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Worth the long

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

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

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

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Worth the long

Remember Me

I didn't know it would hurt so much,
to see the ghost of what might have been.
Shiny see through memories
Of the moments of remember when.

A shiver of emptiness remains,
I need your words like I need my soul,
when you gave me nothing at all
Being forgotten took it's toll

Remember when you loved me
Remember how good we felt
Remember when....

Remember when you told me
Remember when it was forever
Remember me as your lover

Give me your poems end this silence
My feet can't pace the floor any longer
Every moment without you love
My confusion just gets stronger.

Remember me, I was your little freak
Remember me, I made your knees weak.
Remember me I need you now
remember me, somewhere , some how...

WHITE LINE FEVER

White line fever 
Can really confuse
Many miles to go
I'm lost in a muse
Read your write
You're lonely too
Picture on my dash
Girl, I'm missing you
Asphalt monotony
Leads to daydream
Where we're together
Oh, I see you beam
My sweet island girl
You make me high
You're on my mind
Unending night sky
Perfect moonlit tune
My true love song
Petal to the metal
Girl, I won't be long

Perfect moonlit tune
My true love song
Petal to the metal
Girl, I won't be long

Awake the Rain

There are no secrets to disguise,
I'm tired of living someone else's lies,
Quench this thirst of wanting you so,
Promise me you'll never let me go

Awake the rain,
Let our love pour
Awake the rain,
Give me some more.

Mysteries and memories they hide,
Truths to your skin my lips confide.
Words they dance in time and space,
Feel my heartbeat in our embrace.

Awake the rain,
Let our love pour,
Awake the rain,
I need you some more.


Tonight I want you to lay me down,
To know your love in rhythm and sound
Kiss me deeply like a wild river rush,
Be more to me that just a poetic crush

Awake the rain,
Wash me with your word
Awake the rain,
Your the music I have heard.
Every touch
Drives me insane,
Touch me deeply and
Awake the rain.

Life's Love Story

Written for the contest
MORE SONG LYRICS

Have you ever seen, the sun setting down
Upon this red roofed town
And hear the sound of love begin
I have never found a more perfect place
Than, when I see your face
I simply fall in love again

Don't ask me which way the wind will blow
Or the tide will flow
Or even where, our love will go
I just know there could never be a place 
Where I can’t feel your warm embrace
With those lips I love to taste

Have you seen the mountains rising from the sea
That’s where I want to be 
With you eternally, in grace
We hear our tune, carried along the wind
Strummed on life’s violin
As a tear rolls down your face

Don’t ask me why the good times seem to fly
Or why some passion dies,
Or how lovers, can say Goodbye
All I know is when I leave this tropic heat
I am filled with the Latin beat
Until the next time on this street,  we meet

Chasing Butterflies

I'm haunted by the words you wrote 
Tell me what you want from me 
Don't tell me what I want to hear 
Tell me how you really feel 

I could be everything for you and more 
I'm telling you now I want more 
I'm telling you I want to be with you 
I want all of you... 
Do you want to be with me? 
Honestly? 

I know you're confused 
I'm confused too, confused by you 
It's okay to be scared 
I'm here for you, I'll hold your hand 
This is a risk I'm willing to take 
But the decision is yours to make
 
You write of walking a straight line 
I'm here to tell you that now's the time 
Now's the time to face your fears 
Now's the time and I'm right here 
Now's the time for us to shine 
Come on baby, let's chase those butterflies

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.

CAN'T GET ENOUGH

Lord, does she even have a clue
One wink and I was through
That first kiss was like glue
Her gravitational pull
Turned my empty into full
Teach me baby, I'm loving school
..Can't get enough!

Girl, I'm drawn into your fire
Making love is my desire
You keep taking me higher
Again and again
I always ready when
Please never let it end 
..Can't get enough!

Your magic is sweet incense 
Broke down all my defense
Every kiss, umm.. so intense
Girl, be careful what you do
Your actions scream I love you
I won't stop till I am through
..Can't get enough!

How Do You Make a Sick Heart Well?

Broken last night, 
 I woke up 
 Precious problem, 
 picking up 
 every part. 
I want to fix it.  
This  
I've tried to mend  
by shooting it into my vein, 
getting in and going, 
by another lover, 
carving the love into my skin, 
by sleeping away 
the black out.
Useless things are poison to the temple.
It’s either one cigarette after another, 
or lots of chocolate, 
the sad tale goes on and on. 
But the fragile heart is broken. 

What do I do?
They tell me to, 
Rely on Thee  
It's hard for me 
I can't see, 
Although I know  
and have been very close  before. 
I was expelled from Hell, thank God. 
Entered into the sunlight. 

While the whole world  
Is in agony. 
I'm feeling happy, 
my heart feels healed,
but this is a deception.... 
it is still broken. 
Just like a peculiar disease, 
there's no cure.

Fill it, 
and deal with all its cuts and bruises...
but then all you have are scars. .
My medicine for the bleeding within...
Is to await love to call me, 
and say that everything is ok. Not to despise my needs...

Inside, there is a little girl screaming. 
And some times...there's an old lady whispering 
that she is utterly tired, and can't bare it anymore. 

Do you shut the door on your heart? 
I can't seem to do it. 
It's too powerful and pure, 
this instrument that passionately pounds within me. 
All its pain... 
I have no control. 

Creatures 
Do you have a broken heart? 
Do you have a heart at all?

A Dead Word

A dying word echoes your life
The past will come; the future will die
Faith will fall, just as you need
If light would rise, you’d make it disease

In this word everything fades
What you like; what you distaste
The dark becomes your flavour of truth
And in this world, hope is removed

A lonely word so sure to bring
A haunting pain that makes monsters sing
Where nothing comes because nothing is
The purest hate will spread from your bliss

And since the day you held that dead word
So close to heart, it’s all you have shared
You circle through the life that is death
Through rape and spells you steal what’s left

And since the day you held on too close
You kill yourself in each living host
And now you see the world is so clear
You twisted love when love was your fear

She is Love

When she gazed at me
I knew it was my destiny
I knew the rest of me
Would tell her history
I was in love

When she spoke to me
I felt my knees grow weak
I could hardly speak
Enwrapped in her mystique
I am in love

I knew it from the start; I felt it in my heart; we would not be apart;
I knew it that first day; she took my breath away; I felt the earth start to sway;

I was in love
I am in love
She is love
 
When she gazed at me
I knew it was my destiny
I knew the rest of me
Would tell her history
I was in love
I am in love
She is love

Music Take Me Back

When I'm blue and need something to make me smile
I can turn on my forty fives and listen for a while
Jimmy Gilmer sang about a Sugar Shack
Holding hands, walking down that railroad track
Then I let the music take me back.

Take me back to a time when love was new
Take me back to a time when skies were blue
When we could catch that falling star
Make love in the back seat of my car
Music, oh sweet music, take me back

Doo-wop memories touched my soul
Mixed with the early days of rock and roll
I close my eyes and through the haze
I see sunshine and better days
Music take me back to those times again.

There was Bandstand on TV in black and white
Radio on 'til you fell asleep at night
There were dances at the school
And swimming in the community pool
Music take me back, let me remember when.

Did we believe those days would forever last
Were things so much better in the past
I dream of days when a movie
Meant kissing in the balcony
Music take me back, let my heart roam.

It seems like a thousand years ago
We found true love and watched it grow
I know this is where my heart belongs
When I listen to those songs
Music take me back, please take me home.

MY VALENTINE

Lyrics written 
Get uber deals
Dynamic offers
And epic thrills
They say talent
I know it's love
From my angel
From up above
Oh, all might see
But only you feel
Under my skin
My heart's thrill
So take my hand
On this night sky
Live the moment
Money can't buy
There's my name
Just take a look
It's on your heart 
Not on a book

So..
If never famous 
I really don't mind
Because I've found
My Valentine!

To Endear Me To You

What more can I do to endear me to you?
How can I endlessly draw your gaze?
How might I incline your heart to be mine,
To reside beside mine, always?

You might have guessed that you are my Muse—
The source of all my inspirations.
I’m doing my best to respond to your clues
To permanently win your affections.

Each song that I sing, each verse that I rhyme,
Are meant to attract your attentions.
Each bouquet that I bring, endless time after time, 
Are just my endearing enduring expressions.      

My soul’s compass always points towards you,
Pulled by more than just mere attraction.
My life is in focus, and my sky’s brightest blue
When I am searching in your direction.

What more can I do to endear me to you?
How can I cement your gaze?
What must I refine to call your heart mine,
That our paths may entwine, always.

Answer To My Prayers

Save me, shelter me,
Keep me in your kisses.
Hold me, cradle me,
Wash me in your wishes.

Light me fire to keep me warm
Be my umbrella when there's a storm

Your the answer to my prayers oh boy,
Don't you know how much I pray
On my knees every nights to God
This is what I say...

Send someone to save me,
Keep me warm with kisses,
Someone to hold me close
Please answer me my wishes.

Be my blanket when I get cold
Be the hand at night that I hold.

Your the answers to my prayers oh boy,
I know you've been praying for me.
Let the tears and rain cleanse us clean
Bathe in what is meant to be.

Save me, shelter me.
I'll do the same for you.
Hold me, help me.
And that's what I'm gonna do.

falling in love with a poet

Falling in love with a poet

If you fall in love with a poet
Pray that your days be long
She can heal you with her sonnets
She can nurse you with her magical songs
Her word is like a bullet
In heart it goes deep and long
Even if you are low and desperate
She can make you feel strong
Sometimes you have to forget
The world you truly belong
What do you make of such a goddess?
Who sets your life free
You are feeling out of place
She makes you stand tall like a tree
Knowing you have such a firm base
You are lucky you have to agree
For I feel in love with a poet
My prayer is now a short say
I’ve one petition in my heart
Just a wish for her to stay
When my life is tearing a part
She works it like clay
Its not long way since we met
But let me have this to say
I know she is working very hard
Because she feels my pain
She takes it with her very hand
She mends it with her pen
My life was but desert sand
She fell upon me like drop of rain
And now she means my whole world
That she has given me to reign
My inside weighs more than the words
With which I’m trying to explain.

Black People

Thugs in the street with their pants hung low
White T's and Tims with two golds in the front row
Philly fades or braids, du-rags, and fitted hats
Sweat towls around the neck 
Baseball caps turned to the back

See some people would call them hoodrats 
because of where they live at
Not knowing the situation 
Seeing the problem 
Or trying to give back
Instead they just judge the book by it's cover
Instead of calling the book your brother

See if we don't stick together 
And if we don't love each other
And stop calling us women B's and Hoes
for we all know that's not the way love goes

So black people lets take a stand 
Reach out and touch your brothers hand
Lets make this world an equal place
Because we've proved that we can

Rush Of Love

Just when I was about
to give up on love,
it came into my life quickly
striking like a snake but as gentle
as a dove.

It opened in me passions
that I never felt before
leaving me totally confused
but yet yearning for more and more.

Why did love for me take so long?
This I guess I'll ner know
but now that its here finally,
I'll never let it go.

Forever I'll cherish it
hoping of it to never
ever give it up
always savoring the sweetness 
from this sudden rush of love.

Your touch fills my heart.
We can walk life’s byways straight.
Let our true love start.

Love me, darling.
Only love,
How I hope you will!
Heaven sent you from above.
My soul feels love’s thrill.

Love me, darling.
Hold me near.
Let smiles share sunbeams.
Your love is the sweetest, dear.
My hope sees new dreams.

Love me, darling.
Only love,
How I hope you will!
Heaven sent you from above.
My soul feels love’s thrill.

Love me, darling.
Come with me.
Life can be sublime.
Take me to eternity.
Let’s love for all time. 

Love me, darling.
Only love,
How I hope you will!
Heaven sent you from above.
My soul feels love’s thrill.

My Man

There was a time I had
Give up on men,
I prayed oh lord I’ll
Wait on the man you send

In ’93 God sent me the
Man of my dreams
His heart was made of gold

He fell in love with my child
And we had our ups and downs
But kept us together any how

In ’94 we where married
In ’95 I bared our son
That wasn’t a lot of fun

Since then time flew by
And God kept him in my life
Our love is stronger than it ever was

Just know you are the half
That makes me whole and
I will love no matter where 
You go

Dedicated to my hubby,
Whose in Iraq serving his country

Yum Yum Girl

Who said the sun rises in the East?
That's not true in the very least....
The Sun rises and sets in the West
Where does dwell the very best...
My Yum Yum girl
Sweeter than molasses
Shining and brightening my way
Oh, I do bless
The very day
I set my eyes on my Yum Yum Girl
My heart has ever since
Been aswirl...
For my Yum Yum Girl
Tasty love beyond belief
Oh, what a relief...
To recapture
My Yum Yum Girl
My Yum Yum Girl

A smile that beams
Golden hair that gleams
How I love the laugh
Of my Yum Yum Girl
My Yum Yum Girl
Oh, my, oh my,
My Yum Yum Girl.
My Yum Yum Girl.

Next the music.

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

Broken Verses

                                                    
The sun set low
And my heart split asunder
The wind blew hard with traces of slow
Darkness spread around and pierced deep under
My blooming valley of roses
Causing them to wrinkle and writher
Poison seeped through my immaterial illusionary world
And caused my heaven a devastating destruction
Smithereens of cutting glass started flowing in my blood
Caused me to shed tears, which made my imaginary world flood
The night seemed eternal, the silence so bloody
Chilled my nerves with horror so relentlessly
Stung my heart with so horrible notions
O how I wished I could lose myself in a twirling motion
With sight and tears, my head rested to a weak slumber
Jerked awake the next morn with a head struck with thunder
The tears so mercilessly had intervened with my peace connection
To stay serene for the next few hours was something beyond imagination
O how I dearly desired the whole ordeal was just a wicked dream
But reality chases one even in a protective realm
Ambled I feebly with a heart soaked in dolor
To a room which I considered my treasure trove
Where I had hatched all my sunny memories and flourished in their fragrance
Where flowed swiftly my memory river with steadiness
With broken sighs and a distressed heart
I set forth to design a beautiful card
But relinquished my work before it was accomplished
Well aware I was that fate would not have it acknowledged
With uncontrollable emotions and a heart filled with desperation
Broke off into a million tears which filled my sea of emotions
With withered reminiscences and scattered notions
How I wept! With great pain I sobbed
As if of worthy fortunes someone had me robbed
My plight seemed everlasting, my love ever flowing
Through the misty valleys where there was no hope of blooming
Into long cherished dreams and sentimental illusions
If it was God’s ordained Will, then there was no solution
Except to bear the whole trial with forbearance
But I failed to practise that, and made undesired interference
In matters where things were already so bleak
But I ensured that my next few months were doomed to make me weak
That’s another story, I desire to abandon it for now
Sometimes later, so farewell for now

My teardrop

When you see a raindrop fall
It is my teardrop after all
When you see a star that would shine
Remember that the teardrop was mine
When you feel the warmth of the sun
Know that it's my heart that you had won
When you see a raindrop fall
It is my teardrop after all
When you see the sky of blue
Put in your notes that I love you
When you feel so alone
I am just on the other side of the phone
When you see a raindrop fall
It is my teardrop after all
When you shall cry
Remember my love for you will fly
When you see a rainbow
In the sky is where my teardrop will flow
When you see a white dove
Just think about the teardrop that falls down from up above  
When you are feeling blue
Remember that my teardrop is for you
When you see a teardrop fall
It is my teardrop after all.

Slowly He Fades

She walks the paths less traveled
collecting wild flowers and fallen butterflies,
She knows that if she just keeps walking
she'll find herself where she once was,
Only she doesn't know which path to follow;

She sits in the seemingly endless field of sunflowers
singing silent songs of a distant tomorrow,
She believes that as the seasons change
she'll find herself closer to Him,
And she pretends not to notice the Sunflowers fade;

She dreams in the perfect forest solitude
gazing up at the Moon staring down,
She wonders, If she sends her wishes to the stars
will she find herself back in his arms?
But she remains there, alone, in the forest;

She runs through the pages in her mind
re-living those special moments they've shared,
She holds tight to the promise he made
she stirs it in with her lemonade,
But as the ice cubes melt
Slowly, He fades.

Edge of Love

Bring on what awakens
It falls under what I’ll lose
And so it goes on sleeping
Under a queen I will refuse

Face what she calls perfect
It got there through her pain
And so it circles back to nothing
Where every face becomes the same

Calmness and reflection
It gets me high on life
But then I find where this is leading
When I become her darling knight

I’ll screw her just to prove it
I’ll throw away my mind
And when I find she’s non-existent
I’ll spread her poison through a rhyme

So lovely in completion
So pointless to deny
If self-hate did not believe me
I’d give it all another try

Black Rain

~BLACK RAIN~

Another rainy stormy night,
nothing will ever feel the same.
Thunder makes me fear with fright,
Theirs no way to call your name.
To be alone is no delight,
here I am alone with shame.
It runs trough me like day and night,
lonesome here for playing my game.
I wish you where here to hold me real tight.
Forgive me for I am  the only one to blame.

A darken rainy stormy night!
Here I whither away in the BLACK RAIN!
In that selfish moment I did not realize,
all I was doing was causing myself pain.
You took and shook me with a big surprise!
And, showed me that my cheating had nothing to gain.
With you in distance I lose my self,
sitting all alone in the BLACK RAIN.

BLACK RAIN, BLACK RAIN!
Please stop the pain, its my love I want to gain.

Tears from me you wouldn't take.
It was my fault to take the fall.
It does not mean my love to you was fake.
Without you I feel real small.
The hurt runs deep~Deeper than a lake!
The hurt runs high~Higher than the tallest wall!
The hurt is heavy~something you can't shake!
The hurt is like a mystery~you can't solve at all! 
BLACK RAIN!

How these cloud posses my days,
I have no one to blame
If I knew exactly what to say,
I would not be feeling all this pain.
BLACK RAIN,
is here to stay!
I have lost what took long to gain.

BLACK RAIN, BLACK RAIN,
please go away!
I want my lover to come back my way.

Tribute to Daniel

“In this life there’s been heartache and pain”
How could I begin to find love again
Desperado walking a tightrope
I looked down and Daniel gave me hope
 
“The first time ever I saw your face”
Cold heart melted, longed for your embrace
Your compassion and character shone
No longer could I live all alone
 
“You took my love and you took it down”
Felt lighter than air with feet on the ground
A love without chains, a soul unbound
But walls closed in as I watched you drown

"In a New York minute everything can change"
Sometimes life takes twists that seem strange
A human chain was formed to find my man
Reaching up was Daniel's lifeless hand
 
Efforts to save, resuscitate
Proved futile to fight the hands of fate
Casket sent home, called his folks to explain
“Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane”

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

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

Never Thought I'd Fall In Love (With My Best Friend)

(Chorus): Never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend
Sit on the phone and talk for hours about anything
He knew everything about me
He was there through my ups and downs
But I found out he fooled around
I’d never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend

(Verse 1): Its sad how things change
Seems like I want to put things back in reverse
Now that I see I feel my love life is a curse
So many times he say he’d stick by my side
There wasn’t anything I never had to hide
I never thought I’d find myself in love with you
Now what am I going to do 

(Bridge): I go back and look at the relationship
you left me over someone you never met
tell me how did you fall in love over the internet
Why did you do this to me
Boy it cost so much stress
My heart is broken and I’m in so much mess
Never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend 

(Chorus): Never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend
Sit on the phone and talk for hours about anything
He knew everything about me
He was there through my ups and downs
But I found out he fooled around
I’d never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend

(Verse 2-Rap): Its crazy how you say its not me, its you so please don’t take it the 
wrong way
Then, I sit and I wonder how in the world you can say this to me
Now wondering, asking myself how can I make you stay
When you was leaving me for this other chick
Now you don’t even want to pick up the phone 
Boy I know you at, I’m here all alone
So you sit there and ignore me baby
I thought I was supposed to be your one and only lady
Now I have to sit here and pretend like nothing ever happened
Tell me how am I supposed to deal with this boo
Im so in love with you
you left me for who?
The answer just hurt me so bad
Now we doing another sad love song
How are you to tell me who was wrong or right
These words I write are quite contrite
But since Im not the jealous type
I’ll let it fly
Its sad how you did me baby boy

Too Soon, My Love - Too Soon

So, here we are again, my dear
Our wondering hearts are trembling with fear
Of the step we took in the pale moonlight
Now, beholding each other in the bright sunlight.

Remember our plan? We'll take it slow
We'll allow our hearts and love to grow
Without the pressure of passion released
Too soon - but now, where do we go?

Is it time for us now to say good bye -
Do we gather ourselves and give it a try;
Are we done, my love, and now we start
On a future that tears our love apart?

Oh, help me now to understand 
How we lost control of our senses and
That now, our passion being fulfilled
We ponder if our love is stilled.

Yes, here we are again, sweet dear,
Two wondering hearts now filled with fear
For the step we took while under the moon
Was it too soon, my love - too soon?

Memories Of Grandma

I am reminded of... the days I would watch her work 
in her flower garden for hours at a time
I am reminded of... the days she would take me by my
hand and say come along help grandma
I am reminded of... me carrying my little bucket along
to help her water all  of her flowers
I am reminded of... The smiles that would cover grandma's 
face when new flowers would be blooming
I am reminded of... sitting on the bench with her and watching 
the butterflies fluttering amongst the flowers
I am reminded of... The birds singing their happy songs as they 
flew around the flower garden
I am reminded of... the wind drifting by us and the fragrance of
the flowers floating all around us
I am reminded of...our walks back from the flower garden and 
our talks along the path back to her house
I am reminded of...how much I miss her everytime I smell these 
beautiful flowers that still grow in her flower garden

In Loving Memory of my Grandmother

Como una fresca quebrada de la monta¤a que se desborda por ti

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.

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.

I've Scribbled This Song For You



I've Scribbled This Song For You...


I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...


now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,


la laa laa la laa laa laa...


(repeat to fade)

Broken Love Slam

Broken Love Slam

How did it come to this
I told you by mail I wasn't piss.
You sure where acting all up into me
Now its over suddenly
You are more than a best friend
Opening my door with one touch from your hand
My thoughts of you are not easy to understand
hmm? Now your like whatever man
That is fine it was not my fault

Never in my wildest dream I ever imagined,
You could give me the best thought out of anything 
that comes along my way.
Happiness does not mean I want to posses everything
Happiness is the smile you bring upon my face
You do not have to be by my side to kiss me goodnight
Once you logoff it like the best conversation to ever ignite.

Do you not recall that one simple song.
"Don't know what you got till its gone."
The truth is,
I did not know what I was missing till I met you. 
How about that song,
"Every rose has it's thorn."
Just like the song (yes) it feels wrong.
Being many miles away and alone, 
I am not searching out for looks,
For what so at the end day he will be an empty book.
Better yet I was not searching to please my heart.
Now you filled it with smiles brought from  many miles apart
I can feel your smiles, 
that is why I always reply to you as My Sweet.

You might not be strong enough to believe in hope,
You edge walker makes me wonder if you are even human.
It's just funny how it took you to make my boat float.
Life lesson learned love starts off with many smiles
Buy the time I hit 100 smiles, 
you are all I am think of.
I will sure  miss them e-kisses, I will hold back the tears.
How about them roses, you would whispers in my ears.
I will end my broken love slam.
With the real message I left for you.
You are what you are, and I am who I am
Life allows us to pass the wrong ones first.
We both fell for eachother, now I wonder what the heck am I cursed.

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.

Not So Long Ago

Not so long ago beneath a bright blue summer’s sky
There your eyes met mine how wondrous was the sight;
We walked together hand-in-hand long into the night.

Not so long ago I held you firmly in my arms 
That we should never part or you wander from my side;
We promised then our love to share never more to hide.

Not so long ago in a hostile foreign land
I held your picture tight, and kissed your lovely face;
I wondered how you spent your day, longing for your embrace.

Not so long ago I heard your familiar, lovely voice
Though we couldn’t touch I wiped away your tears;
I’ll be home before you’ll know it to quiet all your fears. 

Not so long ago you found me standing in a crowd
There our love embraced and never to let go;
We cherished every single moment more than you should know. 

Not so long ago I watched the autumn’s setting sun
With shadows growing long and hours passing by
We tasted love’s sweetest nectar, and sorrow’s bitter cry.

Not so long ago beneath a bright blue summer’s sky
There your eyes met mine how wondrous was the sight;
We walked together hand-in-hand long into the night.

From The Glowing Embers

You glow deeply like a warm summer's night,
while I shine brightly as the sun -
opposite puzzle pieces of dark and light,
complementary pieces that fit just right,
causing time itself to come undone.

Through thick and thin,
virtue and sin,
you could be poor, you could be rich,
you ease the edge, you ease the itch.

I will love you more than power and money,
breathe in the essence you emote,
taste your mysterious honey,
sweet and golden down my throat.

When you're right, when you're wrong,
this is all part of our love song.
You satiate my appetite,
leaving just enough room
for me to sip up your tears,
sip up your remaining gloom,
until we have conquered our fears,
and there is nothing left but light.

When the temperature turns colder,
as we become frail and older,
from out of the glowing embers
of our Autumn, late September,
there will appear a most precious gem,
causing me to reminisce all over again
about that long-ago fateful spring,
when we began our passionate fling.

And after all these years, I still sing:


"You glow deeply like a warm summer's night,
while I shine brightly as the sun -
opposite puzzle pieces of dark and light,
complementary pieces that fit just right,
causing time itself to come undone."

Is she the One? inspired by the #1 Bestseller from Tavarus M. Moreland

Is she the one my heart belongs to
Is she one I can sing this song to
Is she the one that makes it worth it again.
To love again
How scary the thought of losing
Control again.
Is she the one that you can cry to when the world kills another dream.
Please don't be a dream.
Please be the one I need
I have to believe I won't grow old and lonely
Don't want the grays to fill my head before you spill in my bed. 
Damn you're so beautiful. Say it again. Baby what's my name. 
Say it again. 
I really need to know are we still just friends? 
Because we just made love over and over again. 
Until the the moon turns yellow let's  
repeat steps A-Z; I hope you can Handle Z-A.
Let's go back to basics
Making sounds barely making sense
Why would you want to turn the faucet off?
Creating a spectrum of lights
As your butterfly cocoons
I see mt. everest in our future
Reaching peaks unknown
The story is untold.
As we click our heels together
I am home
caught up in the tornado of love
up and away
look around, this room is a mess
Disarray, will this ringing leave my ears
Disoriented, my eyes are low like an oriental
call the press let them know my heart has been written on
she is hiding a heart press
tell the story!
impressive the way she exceeds all spectators expectations
don't crash your automobile
even Howard Hughes would agree she is flawless
maybelline and cosmos not needed
she was born that way
she reordered the structure of the universe
scuplture artisty based on you
blessed the two artists that came together
and created you.
Is she the one? 
Is yet to be seen

AM GLAD YOU DO

___I'm glad you do___

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

In the history, those days won’t soon be forgotten
‘till this time, your words still worth a fortune
They will go nowhere; they will be with me forever
Those nights we shared, they will grow in me as ever.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

As ever, you're the light I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel at the fore
You're a heroine, that heroine of the war.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You set me free and still stay by me
You let me feel… the fresh of where I be
You succor to the battle you do not begin
You let me live… though you do not commit a sin.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

You're my light, the one I use to see
You're my savior, the one that set me free
You're an angel, that angel I met at the shore
You're that queen, my queen for sure.

I'm glad you feel me
I'm glad you free me
I'm glad you do help me
‘o sing again.
I'm glad you move it
I'm glad you roll it
I'm glad you do pop it
‘nd make me whole.

I'm glad about what you do
You make my heart brand new.
I'm proud of you
I'm glad you do...

Never Told You

Tired of talking 
‘bout weather
Other trivial things

Tired of talking 
‘bout food
The price of tangerines

You may outlive
This aging man
Before I go
Please understand

Never told you how 
I love you 
When I held you
In the dark

Never told you how
I love you
I was never
Very smart

I never told you how
I love you
When I kissed your 
Baby face

Never told you how
I love you 
And I pray it’s 
Not too late

I would  tell you, 
“That’s what men do…manly men don’t say,  ‘I love you’”
That was my alibi
But what men do should be corrected
What men do can’t be accepted 
If it makes your woman cry

Tired of talking 
‘bout scandals
Rumors of the day

Tired of talking 
‘bout old mistakes
Who deserves the blame?

The Winter of our lives
Is drawing near
Let’s change it to Spring
From year to year

Now I’m telling you 
I love you
Though the words are coming late

I’m telling you
I love you
And it feels so good to say

I’ll love you in the morning         
Love you through the night
I will love you through the tears
And all the tragedies of life

I’ll stay with you forever
Love you every day
Love you,  love you, love you
It feels so good to say

Love you, love you, love you, baby

Feels so good to say…..

Love

Jungle Love

Your sweet nectar
wraps around my senses
like jungle vines
steady drums beating
Your heart near mine

Your strong hands
hold me suspended
by my waist
Just enough pain and strength
against my supple skin
For my taste

The musk of your
sculpted body and the forest
has me going wild
But yet, the tender way you
protect me, reminds me of
Being a child

A safe familiarity
with a strain of animalistic
seduction
Your invisible hold over me
leaves me arrow poisoned
Unable to function

My long dark hair wraps you
with smells of coconut and ocean Sun
your locks full of mud and enemies
Blood
together, my warrior
We make One

Once upon a memory

The sun has risen in my night but I was blind to see the light The moon have sunk in a new dawn I dreamt too long,and it was gone.... Now i stroll over the shore gazing above the horizon to find a shooting star But what's the use of shooting stars which fade too far from where you are? What's the use to make a wish when you are not with me What's the use of sprinkling spells on once upon a memory? What's the use for candles on the sand If you're not here to hold my hand What's the use of fragrant words when autumn leaves are burnt What's the use for hearts to beat when worlds don't understand? Last petal falls upon my feet the wind blows in my hair a melody on starry night Hushed whisper in my ear Soft music plays in distance the guitar 's not there So what's the use for symphony? Once more I'm deaf to hear Slowly i tiptoe to the stone wall which stands behind the old Palm tree Slowly I seek deeper as a tiny shadow i see a shadow which keeps growing and getting close to me Its my imagination It must be a fantasy In silence I walk back to where our cabin used to be My fingers bury footprints which I found by the sea.
Charma This is a fiction poem inspired by a song i was hearing called 'Love is blind' by Donny Montell

Blood upon Pages

As I place the pen
on paper
my soul beings
to bleed
upon the pages
my secret longings
hopes and dreams
of which I hope to be,
how I want to reflect me
transpire into the universe
within my poetic lyricism
the warm sweet smoke
of my vega blunt
swirls about me, flickers
in and out of motion
as the vanilla candle nearby
fights the shadows in my room
the cool summer breeze
from my window
carries dancing sinsemilla 
fog around me, allowing
my mind
to adventure elsewhere
into the nights abyss
of minutes, turned to hours
I write
pages, of words
scribbling my life, struggles
and fears
Bob Marley and Lauryn Hills
“turn your lights down low”
beat inspirational peacefulness
on my eardrums
my small hands delicately pluck
my imaginary guitar strings
as I join her in a solo, Miss Hill's
magical voice cracks
with emotion, and my soul
tingles with excitement
For creativity flows
within my veins
I breath real music, such as
she, as soon as daylight opens
thine dark brown eyes to see
The poetic flowetry, carries me
and speaks to me
the notes capture my inner 
disturbance and desires
until the soundtrack of my day
takes me into Summers night
thoughts of my dreams 
of being a published poet
clearly float
into my sight
Then, I sit
as I place my pen
upon the paper
black and white turn to one
and my soul bleeds
onto pages
into an early sun

I'm Your King

A burst of white light gamma rays, overbearing a flash of brilliance burns through to my soul everything is like hell the world starts to melt in the blink of an eye just the cold blackness of night I don't care if I am not again what I once was, for at this moment I am greater now than ever before I took the path between teetering, tight roping walking right up to my right divined in my unholy state I thought I told you I am your king still you sit there, hesitating I know you hate me what does that mean? I hate just about everything still I'm chosen I did not wish before now bow down to me refuse me no more for I shall always be your demon until you accept me as your King. I don't even know you though you say we used to be best of friends, you and me the day you ditched me I remember now exactly how it played out back when we were just tiny things even back then I still was King you thought me stupid just a ruse I would laugh inside, you see? not one of you single, mean people ever even knew me in a world, mostly seen to me that is why only I can be your true King and bring forth a new source of light everlasting. As two worlds collide slowly aligned one wrapped in shadows one bathed in white evils swirling in the clouds above I'll always be the king you love to hate or despise as in your blood I thought I told you, I am the one I am the way, the way out shall be shown breathe in my spirit as it carries you away breathe in my faith it shall carry your empty space and deposit you gently on a cloud just enough higher than you've ever dreamed of for I am king now, and your in my hell your in my imagination, I'll just never tell you'll feel as though dreaming, you'll feel now if you try and see you were always found the most shared in the light cast upon me the last bright star in heaven. Denounce my name, if you may One year later, still not afraid A black sheep, a darkened spade That's just life, I'm not right I'm in the wrong, follow along Like a piper, I'll pitch a song Mesmerized, the weak wills sing I thought he told you, he's still our king.

Forever Radiant




Radiant hymn's   of morning sun
of Godly words   O' how I run
to and fro
I traipse in search
in love I rest
still      my spirit yearns  

I will sing of the Lord's great love
forever...
forever..
forever...

I hear the call    upon the hill
in shallow breath    my heart lie still
O' trial O' fear
I march ahead
I call my king
on Zion's perch

I will sing of the Lord's great love
forever...
forever..
forever...


To proclaim    everlasting     the prize
onward and bestowed to rise
O' anointed one
I march ahead
in love I rest
each day of toil   

I will sing of the Lord's great love
I will sing
forever..
forever...

forever... 

O' how I bear   in my heart
in completion   just    to be a part
with sinful flesh
my spirit cries
I call my King
to shun desire

I will sing of the Lord's great truth
I shall sing forever
forever...
forever...
forever...

Amen......

I want to marry you

I want to marry you because your beautiful to me 
Not just the beauty ones eyes see 
But also the beauty that's skin deep 
I want to marry you because 
Your precious to me 
Not precious like money or jewelry
Precious like the smile on the face of a new born baby 
I want to marry you because 
When I see you 
Your all i see 
Your the one that makes me smile 
You bring out the best in me 
I want to marry you because 
Without you there is no me 
I'm lost without you 
So i ask 
Would you marry me

The Love Song

You are the yearn of my days 
Like the new air of my breath
Sunshine greets through my morning
As if I was slept under the bliss

And if I had to leave from my certain place
To be the other side where there is you
I will catch every second of time
Just only to stay whole with you

I would say and sing it to the blue sky
How's love flood through our kiss
It made our world swirl and fly by
Like a miracle of pendulum swing

Days kept changing, unfolding
But still I'm insist to be here
Moon rose like too early
Seemed it stayed to be apathetic

And if I had to leave from my certain place
To be the other side where there is you
I will catch every second of time
Just only to stay whole with you

I would say and sing it to the blue sky
How's love filled and made me full with you
Immeasurable even by time
For all I want is you

And won't I take all those back again
Though I'm suffered in pain
Promised to be by your side
For I know and I can see 
The same lonesome in you and me 

*inspired by Anne Currin contest "Song Lyric"

Note: This is actually my old song lyric. I made a big modification and few changes of words in it regarding to the differences of language, but hopefully it still worth to be read :) enjoy!

NEVER FELT SO RIGHT

You can be my girl, come on
I can be your guy, that's right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

It's not good to be apart 
Let me see it in your eyes
Don't look away, okay
Please don't ever disguise
Cause in those pretty eyes
Your soul's totally exposed
I can see your heart, oh my
My want for you just grows

Here's my hand right now
I can be your man, oh wow
You can be my song, my tune
I'm your biggest fan, I swoon 
Magic's in the air, stardust
Girl we got to start, gotta trust
It's not even fair, don't fly
I can see your heart, oh my

When you're holding my hand
My world is spinning a round
I'm inside out, I'm upside down
Girl you give me vertigo.. Vertigo
Crazy love never felt so right
Gonna hold you day and night
Oh, here comes the white flag
I surrender
I surrender
I surrender.. without a fight
Crazy love never felt so right

You can be my girl, come on
I can be your guy, that's right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

I surrender.. without a fight
Crazy love never felt so right
Let's get back together, oh yeah 
Why don't we try it tonight

TIME KEEPS COMING

Time keeps coming
Another day has passed
So many distractions
Forever we won't last
One day at the table
The next an empty seat
Yesterday is a memory
Tomorrow death's drumbeat

So
Live in the moment
Celebrate the now
Today a sacred treasure
Create many "wows"
Chase great adventure
Invest in a cause
Find joy in little things
Love just because!

I say
Fly like a butterfly
Go ahead take a chance
Give more than expected
Taste sweet romance
Walk in the meadow
Take all the wonder in
Dance in the moonlight
Live free be born again!

Day Light

The Brightness in her eyes to my "suprise" brought out the Day Light.  Her walk 
was 
straight, her smile was bright, just like the Day Light.
She greeted people gracefully with such compassion and Love.
Her composure was not Dark it was just like the Day Light.  Both Day and Night, 
even 
when she was not in sight, you visioned her just like the Day Light.

Every Twist and Turn

Winter days are cold and gray while summer’s warm and bright. 
Snow covered mountain tops melt away when the time is right.  
Pouring rains and hurricanes will stir up now and then.  
Storms appear from year to year no less than dear old friends.  

                                       Refrain:
All the good and bad and sweet and sad pass by us every one; 
all the lows and highs and tear filled eyes and races still not run.  
All the  gentleness and sweet success and love along the way, 
everything we’ve learned every twist and turn 
every moment of each day. 


Guitar songs and things we long for growing up too fast; 
rocket dreams and what it means to let go of the past.  
Picking, choosing, winning, losing, walking in the rain; 
home run balls and strike-out calls are how we play the game.

                                      Refrain:
All the good and bad and sweet and sad pass by us every one; 
all the lows and highs and tear filled eyes and races still not run.  
All the  gentleness and sweet success and love along the way, 
everything we’ve learned every twist and turn 
every moment of each day. 


Early morning rise and shine the sky is painted bright; 
so many hues for me and you to make us feel all right. 
‘Till the end of day as sunshine fades and darkness closes in; 
we say our prayers to God somewhere wondering 
where does this life end.    


                                      Refrain:
All the good and bad and sweet and sad pass by us every one; 
all the lows and highs and tear filled eyes and races still not run. 
All the  gentleness and sweet success and love along the way, 
everything we’ve learned every twist and turn 
every moment of each day. 

All the   gentleness and sweet success and love along the way, 
everything we’ve learned every twist and turn 
every moment of each day.

If We Only Believe

Why are we here on earth, 
because the Lord has something for us each to do.
He has not told us what it is,
but it is not to pine over lost love.
It is said he never gives us more then we can handle,
we just need to work at finding our way.
Life can not always be peaches and cream,
we must be ready to take the bad with the good.
Life will not always be what we expect it to be,
we must open our eyes that we may see.
A person should never feel they are not needed,
we need someone and someone needs us.
Though it may not be the person we want it to be,
someone is out there it may just be a matter of time.
To grieve over a lost love one is to be expected,
to go through life alone is not what anyone expects.
We need only to open our eyes and believe...
I am needed ...I am wanted ...by someone.
Someone is out there waiting for me,
a real live human Being...I just need to believe.

Almost a whisper

Beautiful words almost a whisper fulfill this heart which beats so slow on Winter nights My dearest fantasy you're like that wind i cannot see yet i can feel its gentle breeze within my hair You are not here but I can feel you arms over me as if you care One thought of you and warming chills move down my spine You're still that music each song of mine I would fly to the stars if i could find you once again If i could find those eyes so full of love your sweetest fragrance everywhere Don't wake me up just let me dream I still have time till another sun rises through the day till then ,let me take your hand Lets dance one last time upon our crescent moon miles and miles away.

Is it Going to Rain

The wind calls your name
Dark clouds on the plain
Gusty wind in my heart
Blowing us apart

Is it going to rain?
Can you feel my pain?
Is it going to rain?
I think I’m going insane?
Tell me is it going rain?

Calm before the storm
Chance upon a breeze
Whisper in the night
I want to hold you tight?

I can feel the weather 
In my bones
It’s telling me 
I’ll be alone 

Tell me is it going to rain?
Tell me can you feel my pain?

Casse - Broken

You have a twinkle in your eye
I confess as you pass me by
I gaze over at your thighs
Thinking would she ever, ever
Call me maybe

I see you dance with passions glow
You have that way, and such a sway
I dream of nights I held you close
I wish more than anything dear
Call me maybe, maybe

Maybe I can love
From torments past
Maybe I can express moments to last
I think of all the wasted doubts
Maybe one day I shall call

Call to arms, the lover’s battle
I just called, to maybe say
That my careless whispers may hold sway
We are callous day to day
Dreams we forget, they slip away

Call me, maybe

HOLDING ONTO YOU

I'm holding on to you
Won't let you drift away
Never going to let you go
Not tomorrow, not today
When the undertow is strong
You feel weak, can't fight
I'll hold you in my arms
Next to you all the night
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you
I'm your fortress, your rock
I cherish your every breath
Protecting you around the clock
I'm keeping all your secrets
I battle to conquer your fear
Never leave or forsake you
By my side I want you near
I'm holding on to you

Life may hit you with a storm
Find yourself on a raging sea
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

I'm holding on to you girl
Please hold on to me
I'll be the lifeline that you need
And pull you into me.. Into me

CRAZY FOOL

Are you just some crazy fool
Who's way too dense to see
You have got the perfect girl
She's getting interested in me

Her eyes melt the heart
Her words touch the soul
Her body creates heat
Bet she can rock and roll

Dude, what's your problem..
You've got to treat her right
Need to treasure her all day
And be loving on her all night

You know I'm only human bro
Yeah.. I'm thinking your insane
You best get back to your sweet
Getting interested in your dame

Her eyes melt the heart
Her words touch the soul
Her body creates heat
Bet she can rock and roll

She's starting to melt my heart
Her words are touching my soul
She's walks by oh I feel the heat
I think she wants to rock and roll

Oh, I don't want to steal your girl
I'm really not the cheating kind
So dude wake up to what you have
You crazy fool you must be blind

I Give You My All (Inspired by Reneord Smalling)

O Lord God Almighty
How marvelous is Thy name
Thou O God sit high and look low
Thou art worthy to be praised
Thou sayest “I am in you”
Thou sittest at the right hand of the Father
In my finite mind I understand 
How elevated, Jesus Savior, 
Thou hast placed me
Sitting on a man made throne 
High above the clouds 
I get a glimpse of Heaven
And how condescending a God I serve
For, to step down from such glory
Where dwellest purity and love
Holiness and beauty beyond compare
Just to save a wretch like me
It must be love
It must be endless and abiding love
It must be love far beyond any other love 
O Blessed Jesus, with thanks and gratitude 
With every cell, with every muscle
Every sinew, every inch of my flesh
Every organ, every bone
That you have connected 
With such infinite wisdom
I give you praise
I give you glory
Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! 
Amen and amen



Thanks for your inspiration sir.

The Love Letter

An old fashioned  letter,locked in a wooden drawer in the attic,
a handwritten letter sealed with passion,wishes,dreams and thoughts 
of love.a letter to be sent,ready with a stamp,never made it to his hand,
and never will.A piece of paper flowing half across the world,a letter which
never left her land.Yes,that was the day,that beautiful Summer morning,
she picked fragrant rose petals from her garden,left them to dry,pressed 
in a book,under the golden honeyed sun' s heat,afterward,she sprayed
some of her perfume on them,that way,her sweet vanilla scent would 
never die.She placed the petals in a blue envelope,thinking of him,
of his reaction,as the petals swift down gently, to the square tiled floor.
She could imagine his smiling face,his caramel eyes,blazing with red 
warm fire,so alive.He loved simple things,as much as she did,and maybe 
that was why they dreamed,they could be so happy,just by being
in each other's arms,forever,by each other's side.She knew he shared 
the same passion,for many things in this colorful life,they were so different,
yet so alike.They carried the same passion for books,She knew,
He could use the dry petals as a bookmark,in each chapter of his story,
her story,their love story,story of their life.She penned the address with
her left hand,then took out the lipstick from her make-up bag,
She put some pink lipstick on her soft lips,and printed the perfumed page,
with a spongy tender kiss,Only that way,her lips could reach, to his.
Somehow in their distant world,She needed to be close to him,
She loved him, loved the face she never touched,the arms that
never held her ,at cold misty nights,and those lips,his lips,
the lips she never kissed. Adoration was the word,addiction,
for just one man,addicted to him,as a poet  is addicted to his pen.
That day She had to go to the post-office,the sky was grey,
thick cloudsof  tearful drops where there to stay.Strange things 
happened,Somehow the love letter,to his hand,never found its way.
The mystery of why,and what really happened is buried in the attic,
The letter is still,there,yet, to ashes,burnt their love within.
An old fashioned letter locked in a wooden drawer for many years.
The key,forver lost at sea,the sea,where the lady resides
Where the lady closed her eyes,in the Vastest Sea of darkened tides.

' The Moon's Pilgrimage ... '

Moon’s Pilgrimage … Across The Sky To Praise
The Maker and All His Wondrous Ways
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Rises High, In Grace
Yet, Still In A Humble – Pilgrim’s Place

Moon’s Pilgrimage … Will Not Betray
All The Moonlight, GOD Lets Display
Tho’ She Moves In His Cosmic-Stage-Play
From His Theme-Theatre, She Will Not Stray

My Pilgrimage … Thru Deep, Dark Space
With Silver-Wings and Beams, I Chase
The Unknown and Known Questions Raised
Will Be Answered, When The Maker Says …

My Pilgrimage … To Touch Heaven’s Face
That Beauteous, Elusive, Mysterious Trace
Borne At The Blessed-Beginning’s Base
My Pilgrimage … Takes Me There To Pray …

My Pilgrimage … Takes Me There To Pay –
My Vows, My Voice, In Vesper-Vase
As This Moon, Is In Harvest – Phase
And Beams Brighter Now … Tho’ Slanted-Gaze

… The Moon … Glowing Ochre-Gold Or Silver
The Moon … Is Making Pilgrimage, Remember
The Moon … Is Trying To Help Deliver
Lost-Souls, Who Can Not Find … Moon River …

… Moon’s Pilgrimage … Keeps Steady Pace
Even Climbing Thru Dense, Cloudy-Lace
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Is Like A Dance, That Sways
Moon’s Pilgrimage … Into The Night’s Embrace … …

You

You live in each dream,wish,need,want and desire,
You live in the flames of my burning passionate fire.
You live in every Handsome kind guy,that i greet.
You live in every pair of warm eyes,my eyes meet.
You live in the sweetest of smiles,melting my cold
distant ice.You live in each memory,in every bright hope,
for the future to be.You are the classic violin of angels'melody,
Soft, gentle music  to me.You live in my pulse rate,in every beat 
of my heart,You are part of my life,You are part of me,I loved you
right from the start.You are my fresh air,my breath,my muse,
my most special verse.You are my one only Love.

HER EYES

Your lyric has never been better
I see the boys are out to get her
To dance with you they'd all prefer
Oh, your rhymes are causing a stir
They seek a chance at romancing 
There's much mesmerized glancing
But what they see and what will be
Is on the floor only you and me
And love's bite won't let me go
Girl, you know we've stole the show
Lost in your eyes I don't have a clue
They're wishing, watching me and you
And as they do.. these boys realize
I'm not now or ever going to jeopardize 
So don't even think about breaking in
Just watch her melt, enjoy her grin
Cause when this song comes to an end
On the next we'll be dancing again
No hard feelings you're not bad guys
Protect your egos tell yourself lies
Make some excuse or clever alibis 
Cause I've captured her it's in her eyes
Captured her it's in her eyes
It's in her eyes
In her eyes
Her eyes

Maybe Tomorrow

Now I'm here, fighting my own demons.
Tell can you see them, with their eyes burning so red.
My hands are weak from breaking all the molds.
I've done everything that I'm told.
I didn't know that you were so afraid of heights.
And I'm so sorry but I think that I'm far to weak
To let you think I can help you down from your pedestal tonight.
I can't help you down tonight. 

I can't help but be angry. I just wish that you would save me.
Pushed the numbers down and watched them fade away.
I'm so small from down here; you're my biggest fear;
You grind my flesh and bones and feed it to all the needy kids.

I said tomorrow and today I'll be the same,
But I'll show you now that I know how I can really change.
And you might not like it. You say I'm so divisive,
I just think your indecisive, so I tell you the choices I think you should already know. 
And I'm so sorry, but I'm at the brink, I cannot think tonight.
I can't let you down tonight. 

Why can't I see that just maybe I'm in way over my head,
Why can't I see that just maybe I'm in way over my head.
I'm far to weak, I cannot think tonight.
Why can't you see that unfortunately your sinking just like lead,
Why can't you see that unfortunately your sinking just like lead.
And I'm so sorry but I don't think I can lift you up tonight,
Yeah your on your own tonight.

If I tell you that I love you

If I tell you that I love you,
do you think you could believe it?
Actions speak louder than words
so I know you have to see it.

When you stare into my eyes so deep,
I'm at a loss for words and my knees go weak.
I get the butterflies and pitter patter.
I wonder if you care or does it even matter?

My love for you runs deep you see.
I want to take it there with you so you become a part of me.
They always say two is better than one.
Can you compare to that or are you just having fun?

I want to wake up in your arms and be the start of your everyday.
I love your hugs, your kisses, and even your fore-play...
I've never felt for someone the way I feel for you.
It's like being in a fantasy, but will the dream come true?

My life is incomplete without your presence surrounding me.
All I really want is to be your everything.
I know that I'm not perfect and I know I've made mistakes,
but now I know that all is left is the time that you make.

The time I make?
I'll spend it with you, in your arms forever just so long as you are true.
So when I tell you that I love you, you know it's nothing new.
I've been loving you for some time.
I think that you can see that I'm ready for your love.
The question to you is...
Are you ready for me?

If I tell you that I love you...

The Time of Youth

At love's first spark when in youth we were,
That crackle and snap of pine cones burning.
Aflame at first then as embers glowing,
Time has left us now, in thought, yearning.

The spark that was, has waned, not fizzled,
We still fit each other like hand and glove.
In our hearts there could have been no other,
God authored our one true lasting love.

Just celebrated 46 years

Truth

Men say there are no absolute truths...

The Truth
Man can govern himself. He just doesn’t have the ability to do this successfully.

The Truth
There is one God. He has a name. He has a son. Their names are different.

The Truth
When you die, you are dead - not ghosts. It is that simple. That’s it, for now…

The Truth
Even though humans die, we were never meant to. We were designed for a time 
without end.

The Truth
The most circulated book in the history of Man must be more than a “book.”

The Truth
Happiness can be attained, even in a completely miserable place.

The Truth
There is no such place as a fiery Hell of torment, except in pagan mythology.

The Truth
There is a Heaven. However, its purpose is not what you think.

The Truth
The meek shall inherit the Earth.

The Truth...
...is not that far from you.

My Beloved,
How can I see beauty without thinking your name,How can I feel happiness 
with you so far away?Empty is my dusky night,Cold as Winter is my day,
I scented our love in the first flower of May,and lost its fragrance,
as a Lifeless Autumn leave,when you vanished,and left me all alone,
alone I am to stay,till then I pray,I pray for your return,I pray that
you'll come back to me,and as I watch the West Sweet Wind playing with dawn,
I live a memory ,of when we made love on the golden stacks of hay,
in the farmer's lawn.I gaze at the horizon,and my thought is filled with you,
My heart bacchus of glee,remembering that June ,a Summer afternoon,
when we wrote poetry,under the shade of the blossom cherry tree.
My beloved,when you wake up in my dreams,you are vaster than the
eternal serene seas,You warm me with your harped string rays love beams,
Yes ,as the first prism of the sun you reflect fire in me,You ignite passion,
even when the flint have turned so wet,with my tears crying for  thee.
My beloved,I pray,I pray the waves,to hug embrace,the greatest wave to be,
I pray,I pray the greatest tides to come and carry you back to me.
I'm here still waiting for you,Maybe one day I will go too,and stop thinking 
of you,but that will be the day,that every thing in my world will be so misty blue.

Not my Song-U2

.




            Yesterday I spent asleep
            no line on the horizon
            and it's been all over you

            A drowning sorrow floods the deepest grief
            I wanna tear down the walls that hold me inside
            you can make me perfect again

            And you give yourself away
            and i miss you when you're not around
            and it's you when I dont pick up the phone
            Oh cant you see what love has done?

            And I can breathe 
            after that and ever after
            all this you can leave behind
            and no one gets hurt

            'Cause tonight we can be as one
            we're one but we're not the same
            Oh cant you see what love has done?

            You can make me perfect again
            and if the night runs over
            then all the colors will bleed into one



U2 songs I used:

Cedars Of Lebanon
No Line On The Horizon
Beautiful Day
Saints Are Coming
Where The Streets Have No Name
All Because of You
With Or Without You
City Of Blinding Lights
Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own
Window in the Skies
Breathe
Magnificent
Walk On
Vertigo 
Sunday Bloody Sunday
One
Window in the Skies
All Because of You
Stuck In A Moment
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

My Final Wish Before I Go

What I’m feeling is difficult to put into words
It really is very hard to share the pain 
I feel in my sad and heavy heart.
I never dreamed when we married that
when it said “until death do us part”
We’d be divided so soon as husband and wife.
I always thought that there was no doubt
that we would grow old together in life.
 
There is a saying that says "nothing lasts forever".
It seems this includes marriage as well
Especially when you're hit with  an obstacle in life
that knocks you when you're not looking on your face.
I couldn't  see this coming it took me quite by surprise
I'd contracted something the Doctors couldn't mend
Soon I'd be leaving the man I loved more than life itself
My husband and soul mate, more importantly my friend.
 
My final wish for you is to find true peace in your heart
When I'm gone remember our happy times together
Let your heart be open for any new love that comes along
If it does grab it with both hands; don't let it slip away
I want you to find a new love with whom to spend your life
Then, if it's meant to be you'll know and have my blessing also
Very soon I hope and pray that you could be asking her some day
Would she do you the honor of of becoming your loving wife.

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....

Warmth of Breeze

Imagine me as a book covered with dust,
A soul whose warmth for years remained untouched

Letters on every page were ill-defined, unclear
The essence was hidden in an ambiguous fear

Uninterested I was in the societal rigmarole,
Me and my outer self were at opposite poles

Quite hesitant I was to turn to the next page
As I knew it would amount only to stormy rage
Quite concerned I was for my future pages and me,
The so-called bright world appeared shadowy

And in this dusky weather, suddenly the air felt unusual
This didn’t happen in years, the matter truly seemed crucial

I bizarrely felt the warmth of cool welcoming zephyr
My pages drifted, smiled and glinted like a pearl

My dull existence got transfigured into a life full-of-beans
Personified I was into a woman of worth, a woman of means

And now after owning this bag full of happiness,
I started reading the letters carved on me,

This time they were decipherable and defined,
They managed to unite me, my heart and my mind.

I looked around, in quest of the soul who revived me
Who passed by me and set my tangled soul free

Seeing him was out of question, quite hazy he appeared to me,
I could only fantasize him as a cozy breeze over the sea

Now, this breeze could be felt only when you are around me
You…  only you and nothing beyond
You…  the only one to make my passion profound
You… in your absence too you could be felt around
You … the only one in whom I am found!

From The Peircing Of An Arrow To The Cold Hearted Fate Of love

her life is on the tip of his tongue
the sparkle leaves her eyes
an arrow to his chest
drawing her to her death
a feather falling from the sky
the death of an angel
her wings turn blood red
like the color of the red sea
the sword drawn out of the ground
by her own hands
what he could not do himself
she has done for him
He falls unto to his knees
the arrow she had put into his chest
the greatest of betrayals
She asked for her death wish
Holding the ring in her palm
He looks into her eyes
watching the love she had left for him disappear
Falling into despair
Her face hitting the ground
Blood surrounded her body
He watched as she died
He couldn't move from the love that had pierced his chest

The Seagull of Vast Oceans

In her dream,there is a seagull,flying high, in skies above,
He is crossing all the oceans just to find his only love.
He might lose his destination,in the strong winds of the day,
He might be carried by wild waves ,as he searches for his prey.
But in dreams He'll always be there,flying by so many lands,
till he makes it to the island,and find  way to her warm hands.
In her dream there is a seagull, spreading his huge silver wings,
there's this girl always in waiting,thinking of him as she sings,
And Her voice echoes a signal to the dolphins of the sea,
as they play in rhtmyc splashes,transmitting a symphony.
And the seagull hear the love song,Of His Love,from miles afar,
It is always the same love song,'My heart's always where you are'.
And this handsome flying creature,on a journey,there he goes,
hoping that one day,he'll make it,Hold ,His Love, so very close.
And his love can't wait no longer,watching rainbows everyday,
watching stars after each sunset,wishing they will find a way,
Find a way to be together,Watch the world turning around,
Rest in their Home little love nest,hear the waterfall's sweet sound.

I've Decided

I've decided to give this my all and stop complaining
To accept you for who you are and stop misleading
I'm putting my guard down and letting you in
let's give this love thing a try again
I'm sorry if i push you away at times
it's just that i'm scared and when it comes to love i'm blind
I've made up my mind 
And made a decision
And now you have my full attention

HERE WE ARE AGAIN

Well, I declare..
Here we are again
We said that we were through
I thought I was over you
You thought you were too
But, here we are again
We randomly collide 
Old feelings are still inside
Neither of us can hide
So, here we are again
Embers turn to flame
The moment you say my name
Intense heat that's just insane
Well, I declare..
Here we are again
We see it our eyes
Such passion can't be disguised 
Or covered with clever lies
Now, here we are again
We let the past pain blow
We're standing here on go
Hot lava wants to flow
Yeah, here we are again
I touch your perfect face
Our lips in sweet embrace
No one can ever take your place
Well, I declare..
Here we are again
Here we are again

NOT ENOUGH

Just another day
they often start the same
But without any warning
life can quickly go insane

Standing in front of a mirror
lights begin to blink
My son shouts "The house is on fire"
our lives are on the brink

In those next few moments
our house filled with dense smoke
Blinding the eyes from accumulated stuff 
life's true values fully awoke

Doesn't matter if you have little or a lot 
things eventually burn, rust, or rot
If your living to accumulate stuff
the more you have.. 
the more it's not enough

Standing on the street
firemen racing from everywhere
Looking intently at our house
you realize your home isn't there

Home is not brink and mortar
it's not the warehouse of stuff
Home is who you hold on to
when life seems oh so tough

Standing there together
the only possession in my hands
Is the one thing that really matters
My precious family's hands

Doesn't matter if you have little or a lot 
things eventually burn, rust, or rot
If your living to accumulate stuff
the more you have.. 
the more it's not enough

*The words of this poem came to me holding 
my family's hands and watching our house burn

Is This a Dream

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

EVENING PLUCKED



12:35 am... When sky’s curtains drape the clouds A mind still reels from bruises of the day, But listens in stillness to the rhythm of breath And in this space, my eyes whimper Of moonlight’s rock-a- bye, swaying the gait, Waiting for the promised hush of the wind Softly pinching a gaze upon light’s pause And finding the mouth ripple in sighs Trickling, gushing dingy haze of water tap. Night, fiddling serenades of robins’ tweet, Absorbs tired thoughts to float like a string, As vanilla scent of window frames a hum Blending with the melody of stars. Then, like an open flight, the heart inclines To slide on rails cradled by a distant Yet near echo of his love:” Shh, my dear Sleep tight as lashes drop; Dream with me, Play our song to the tune of warm chorus.” And the world passes by in a quiet tunnel drained, Where dusk meets a lull of good-night’s keep.

Juxtaposition

Meeting you, Baby, began pain's departure.
Changing each raindrop to kisses and sunshine. 
Can you hear my heart beat each time you are near me?
Can you feel our rhythm in sweet modulation?
Yeah!  Seeing you, Baby, sends my spirit high-rising.
Fills up my daydreams with sweetness enchanting.

Refrain:
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ... Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
I can feel me changing, my life rearranging. 
I love this transition, you juxtaposition!
Life is a passage; so let's go to heaven.
You and me, Baby, forever and ever.
Ah, ah!  Ah, ah!  Oh, yeah.  Oh, yeah.

I love this transition, you juxtaposition!
Living out daydreams with you is exciting.
Dark clouds lost, forever sending sunshine in rain,
Enchanting me, Baby, I feel your love so fine.
Can you feel my heart beat each time you embrace me?
Can you feel our rhythm in sweet modulation?

Refrain:
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ... Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,

Changing each sorrow to kisses with your flame.

I can feel your rhythm when we are juxtaposition!
Loving you, Baby, sends my soul to the sky.
Reality knows that for you I would die.

Refrain:

Ah, ah!  Ah, ah!  Oh, yeah.  Oh, yeah.

Dying Star

A star still hovers over morning
It died a million years ago
It's as if to give me warning...
                            that you've lost your way ....back home

You left me here without a fire
as if desire has turned to stone 
Last night, the stars that lit the heavens,...   
              were only ghosts of stars, that led you where you don't belong

The moon, ..was drifting,.... watching for the sunrise, 
            while waiting for the dawn

While  I was waiting for your headlights.....
                         somehow knowing ...  ....you wouldn't come

While, there are things that last forever....
some dreams will only fade away,
and all the times that we remember
                         may be all we have when stars return by end of day 



..............interlude music.................



I've watched the sun unlatch the gate to morning
I hesitate to leave the window's ledge
Your pillow lies untouched beside the bed
                          The stars up in the sky... have long been dead 

One star is telling me it is morning
It seems the others simply strayed
Some things we want to last forever
                         are illusions we have cherished, but will often fade away

                                       will often fade away........

                                               as if they're made to stray away.......

Human Being

I walk a mile to see the self in me that I believe to be, 
I knew the road I choose to lay my head to sleep is called my home,
times in need I could barely see that in myself I will set free, 
the act that held me down, something about me I could not see,
I lived a life when I decide that day I said that I don't care, 
so young, so bright, I dim my light, traumatized for me to share,
love me please regardless of what you heard and what you have seen, 
friends say that I'm only human, yes you're right, a human but who am I being?
My life will move in the direction I choose, 
this I know I have always been taught
that I choose to be a winner or lose, 
its entirely up to me its all in my thoughts.

LOVE IS

Love is give and take
Love is what you make
Love is joy and ache 
Love is real high stakes
Whatcha gonna do?

Love is day and night
Love is staying tight
Love is blind and sight
Love is getting right
Whatcha gonna do?

Girl, it's time to decide 
Will you be by my side?
Oh, I got to know, will you stay or go?

Love is up and down
Love is a merry go round
Love is scent and sound
Love is laying you down
Whatcha gonna do?

Oh yeah, I need to know, are you for me
Look in your heart, tell me what you see
I want you bad, but girl do you agree
I'm in a fog, make it clear, set me free
You can set me free.. 
Please!

Love is you and me
Love is a mystery
Love is us and we
Love is victory
Whatcha gonna do?

Girl, it's time to decide 
Will you be by my side?
Oh, I got to know, will you stay or go..

Cindy Had A Little Bird

Cindy had a little Bird, 
Little Bird, little Bird, 
Cindy had a little Bird, 
Its feathers were yellow as the sun

And everywhere that Cindy went, 
Cindy went, Cindy went, 
Everywhere that Cindy went
The Bird was sure to go

It followed her to school one day
School one day, school one day
It followed her to school one day
Which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a Bird at school

And so the teacher turned it out,
Turned it out, turned it out,
And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near

And waited patiently about,
Patiently about, patiently about,
And waited patiently about
Till Cindy did appear

"Why does the Bird love Cindy so?"
Love Cindy so? Love Cindy so?
"Why does the Bird love Cindy so?"
The eager children cried

"Why, Cindy loves the Bird, you know."
Loves the Bird, you know, loves the Bird, you know
"Why, Cindy loves the Bird, you know."
The teacher did reply

Look up in the sky

Look up in the sky

Look I know we got off on the wrong foot,
But charge it to my head not my heart
I thought I saw an opportunity 
So like cupid with his bow drawn, I shoot
With much apology and I do respect your
whole Ora.
You have much more to your diaspora
I read some strong kinetic vibes
Like when we were back in Kemet
See I know a Queen when I see one
I just want to spoil you
With other worldly lavish trinkets
I've got designs on loving you forever
So a man thinketh
So I'm here in my purpose
All we have is from this moment on
It's you who I chose
to build this destiny 
See time keeps rolling on
I melt the ice
Quiet the storms
Sculpted mountains
Love was created for beings like you and I
Need proof, I give you the twilight sky
Those Stars visible or not
are up there, while you counting them
they counting on us
to join them and love on high
Infinite miles away people are hanging on our every word
A shooting star is a symbol of love deferred
Don't let down the galaxy
Look up in the sky and look up at our destiny
Once they fall they fall fast
Don't let this moment pass
Grab hold of my hand
and alas
we will make it to dance on the sun
And if we are not careful 
another set of should be lovers 
will be staring at the twilight sky at
what we have become.....

Moments

 
I have traveled 
my whole life 
to be this far from you
 
Moments 
have passed by 
like the miles 
that lie between us
 
The wind 
has carried you 
my nameless name

Photographs (Simon & Garfunkel)

Your face......your face......brings back the heartache I can't erase
Old memories blowin' in the wind
Comes with the rain of yesterday's winter day....your face...

Unsung...melodies captured when we were young
Here in the photographs, before bitter tunes hummed
The sound of your voice singing love to me
Rings in my ears with each picture of .....your face

Can you imagine us years from today...going our separate ways?
How terribly strange,  with no words to say

Your face, memory brushes the same tears, silently sharing the lost years

Drowning in your Desert of Lies

Tell me all about her
Is she beautiful?
Is she simple in her complex way?
Is she all you want and need?
Is she your everything?
Tell me is she beautiful?

Is she that pretty picture in your mind?
The one with whom you spend your time?
I bet she’s perfect
Is she the sun, the moon, the night, the day?
Is she the dream you wish would never go away?
Tell me is she beautiful?

Tell me is she special?
Is she perfect in her imperfections?
Is she fragile like a rose?
But yet so unbreakable
Tell me is she beautiful?

Is she the reason you can’t hide
The smile that’s stretched from eye to eye?
I bet you love her
Is the one who holds your heart?
The one who lies within your arms?
I bet she’s wonderful

Tell me am I beautiful?
Am I strong in my weak-hearted way?
Tell me that I’m worth it
If I fall on my knees and cry
Will you stay?

Dare to Wonder

Dance to the rhythm of my heart
Can you feel the vibration?
Can you feel it from head to toe?
I listen…to your melody – a gift to unwrap
It’s a healing potion to this lonely man without a roof on his head
How can You craft such marvelous miracles?

*chorus*

Dare to wonder
What I’ve become…so numb
Dare to wonder
What I dream…not like some
Break free from wretched reality
Dare to wonder
How it feels to be…free!
Freedom has a high cost – it’s not free
Pay the price
Roll the dice
My prize to you is my love

You made me merrily sing from the start…
Can you hear me longing for you?
Can you elevate me above the disconsolate clouds?
I watch keenly at your performance – a dream come true
It’s GOOD LUCK in disguise – it took hard work, man!
How can you surprise me with your trippy talent?

*double chorus - both differentish* 

Dare to wonder
What I’ve become…so numb
Dare to wonder
What I dream…not like some
Break free from wretched reality
Dare to wonder
How it feels to be…free!
Freedom has a high cost – it’s not free
Pay the price
Roll the dice
My gifts of expressing inner love
Dare to wonder
What I’ve become…a naughty boy who loves
To cause trouble and what not
Dare to wander
In my eloquent dreams…wrapped up in wings of doves
I deliver it to you ‘cause you’re hot! 
Break free from plastic reality
Dare to wonder
How it feels to be…truly happy! 
Freedom is free – for us thankfully
No need to pay the price
Drop those silly dice!
My present to you is my peace I hand to you

~bridge~

We’ll rejoice all day long 
As long as we enjoy this song 
Dare to wonder
How I put it all together?
Inspiration is key – it’s like catching a light feather
And letting it float about in the swirling sky
I release my passion and write it down on paper
It’s merely a work of art –
It’s original from the young heart

How Do You Say Goodbye

How do you say goodbye to someone you've loved
With whom you have shared your life
Is a goodbye enough or "I'll see you around"
After walking together through strife?

How do you say goodbye to a person who held
Such a great big space in your heart
Do you offer a hug, or a goodbye kiss
Or a wave of the arm as you part?

Who knew when you met and proceeded to walk
Down that road filled with places and things
That you'd find such a friend with the same cares as you
A relation unending it seemed

How do you say goodbye to that loved one or friend 
Do you pretend that all is okay
Would you hold back the words and let silence prevail
Even though you have things left to say?

Did you have the chance to say your goodbye 
To someone you thought was so true
Were you sad when you realized that you had to part
Or did it not bother you?

Was the goodbye you had a sudden thing
That came at you out of the blue?
Or was it a slow one - built up over time
Not hurting as much, cause you knew

What is it you do if their taken from you
You're unable to say your goodbye
You can hope in your heart that they knew how you felt
But now - only tears left to cry

Did you watch as the love started slipping away
Wondering how could this possibly be
After all the good times - all the trials we went through
Was I really unable to see?

One thing is for sure, new days come - old days go
And love will be lost and found
It's important to know that you gave it your best
No matter what life brings around

Now it's time to let go and move on with your life
After all - tomorrows do come
How you face it today is the healing for you
Goodbye is the right thing for some 


Details | Lyric | |

Goodbye

My life is torn between two worlds
Of now and used to be
But all I ever wanted 
Was the world of you and me
Memories of the only love 
That I have ever known
It’s hard to hold them in my heart
But hard to let them go
At times I wonder who I am
Where did I go wrong 
Why am I so lonely 
In a life I don’t belong
I know my heart will never heal
While feeling so much pain
I’ll never find the sunshine 
While I’m following the rain
Too late now for miracles
They wouldn’t change a thing
For someone else’s finger
Now wears your wedding ring
But though our song has ended
You still want us to dance
And though I’m still in love with you
My heart can't take the chance
Forever I will miss you
And forever I will cry, but
To find myself again
I know I have to say goodbye..

 i didn't know what to do 
but that was before i knew i needed you

 i would walk down the streets all alone 
going every where but home
 
before you came along
 
i would turn my face to the sky 
wishing i could tell this world a quick  goodbye 

before you came along
 
i would fall down 
so far down i had to look up
 to see the ground 

but before i could shed another tear
 you were here 
 holding me in your arms

you had finally come along
 just in time to help me be strong
 
i love u
 
now u are ready to go
 i did something, 
what,
 i guess ill never know
 this has all played out like a bad song
 because now your going
 going
 going
 GONE :(

Normal To Me

This isn't just a poem This isn't just another emotion This is me, these are my thoughts The Imagery is my sight, And The Allegories are my Life I'm lonely, There is just me But there's so many people around but no one can hear my loudest screams Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me I'm torn, I'm Cut Part of my heart stabbed, and then taken from me The Search for my innocence, Is like a moa hunt Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me Laughing and Jokes all directed towards me Just to Hurt me Cover all of the Halls "Fag, Emo, Queer" Words I too often know Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me Curling her hair putting on her makeup "You're worthless and nothing to Me" Says the so-called all-loving-one As she screams: "Why am I not Pretty" Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me This is not just a poem not just some words my pen cries with each words But this is Just a Glimpse Don't Shout nor Scream This is all just Normal To Me

ANGEL'S TOUCH

            Did you ever stop to think,
     What this angel's touch really mean?

       Smiling at you at a flower's blush
    Giving you the time to think and hush
      When you wanted a melody to hear
      She sang you a song in joyous tears

   When you badly needed determination;
      She is ready to give you inspiration
  When only a joke could make you smile; 
      She flashed it to you in shortest mile

      When you wanted a game to play;
          She partnered with you in gay
  When only an hour you swore to spend; 
   She wants to be with you until the end

 When strings of thorns are poured upon you; 
    With arms wide open, she welcomed you
       She comforted and gave you might
     All these all she did with heartfelt delight

                            Now, 
                        I ask you...
   Have you ever felt the touch of an angel?

I WENT FOR A WALK TODAY

I went for a walk today
Hoping I wouldn't see you
Because I don't know what to say

I looked at every face in the crowd
Hoping it wasn't you
But that's not really true

Every laugh melted my heart
Echos of a past now broken apart
Seems everyone reminded me of you
A glimpse here and there of what we'd do

I remember how..
Your songs made me high
Being with you was always blue sky
I was crazy to ever say goodbye
Like a fool I chased a pretty lie

Now baby, time stands still
My songs have lost their thrill
I dance but it no longer rhymes
My mind is a captive of better times

I looked at every face in the crowd
Hoping it was you
Somehow I wish you knew

I wouldn't know what to say
Hoping I'd see you anyway
I went for a walk today

Sgt Griffin

A sorte protege os audazes
Yes a sergeant rode in here as always with
A daring pair of rangers that made us just
Go pray it's back to Fashion Day because
Baby we won't have to pass away, oh no
To the reality of a fascist state
Although

It's hard it's envious of me to see you apart from me baby
Yeah into so many things that aren't a part of me maybe
It's the coat of arms oh stitched by those that harm
That cause alarm
Or the green card rejected by the armies of God be-
Cause they frost The Fall and that's

That's just to save us all
And the justice saves us all

And the style is designed
And with the sign of a Griffin
The symbolism of a lion of wisdom
Where the kings have wings
Oh don't you see
Yeah my envy of these things that separate you and me

So the poet in the philosopher
He said that he'd
He'd throw us the thrill of a cross but first
Put on a gauntlet, in a British accent "lad you can't let
Oh the truth bring out the worst and let it get
Yeah the best of you" so

We'll catch it without the hurt but
Still left with a loss of words 'cause

The style is designed
And with the sign of the Griffin
The symbolism of a lion of wisdom
Where the kings have wings
Oh don't you see
Yeah my envy of these things that separate you from me
My envy of things that separate you and me

Only Because I Love You

Every night, before I close my eyes,
I have this aching in my ear.
Something else bothers me tonight,
Your title of wife is drawing near.

That's what your mother is or was,
And she still has a crush on me.
Just be sure you don't rush,
Know that you love him honestly.

I want you to know I loved you,
Though we didn't do right sometimes.
I could not stop thinking of you,
I think the choice you've made is right.

I could hate it again and again,
Yet out of love I'd let you go.
I believe that's the right decision,
Now I kiss goodbye with this poem.

Reverie To Reality

My eyes rapaciously closing from the rampant onslaught of sleep,
All the while, aromatic thoughts of her tingling my senses grappling for more time within my psyche to feel her breath upon my face.
Open, close, open, please stay open, slipping away, a final physically powerful determinant thought of her as I drift away, oh how beauty dances about her.   

Morning arrives with a thunderous sentiment of arousal; throughout the oblivious night she somehow cradled my emotions.
There it is, her outlying presence, my thoughts reach her, tantalizingly embracing her from afar.
In a moment of pure rapture I feel her compassion, it devours my being with carnal desire.
Elation lingers over me, through me, shudders my mere existence with verve from some inestimable force.

I steal thoughts of her throughout the whole of the day, mind dwelling in a vacuum, heart massive with pulsation, soul ever engaging bouts with heaven.
Graciously my day over, with detachment lastly concluding, emotions now keen with fervor and fortitude.
I allow myself to revel in her exquisiteness, reach for her, take her in, and strip her of the malicious day that may have sought her out.
Embracing her, energy invigorated, ardor consuming, I take the splendor that I behold, reach deep into her essence and release my absolute love.

SLEEPING WITH THE DEVIL'S WIFE

   SLEEPING WITH THE DEVIL'S WIFE
Some night you'll wake before morning
Sweatin to the oldies she will sing.
She'll make you think you're in Heaven...
Long enough to tell you ANYTHING...

And you'll believe her.

Some night you'll wake up hearing voices
Sweatin to the oldies of here life.
She'll never say you're in Heaven.
Or tell you you've been sleeping with the Devil's Wife.

She'll never tell you, you've been sleeping with the Devil's wife.

But you will KNOW.
You will know.

That's when you'll need her.
That's when you'll love her the most.
That's when you will die.
Sleeping with the Devil's wife.

That's when you will die.

Trying to hold on

Lying still
Sans motion
Clouded sky
Heavy emotion
Starless Night
Painful separation
Trying to hold on

Stagnant life
She has moved on
Precious memories
Everyday delusion
Burning flame
Blinded vision
Trying to hold on

I took a moment and penned this song
I have been waiting to say it for a long
I am trying to hold on

Yes, I am weak
Never was strong
Just wanted to be with you all my life long
I am trying to hold on

EVERYTHING FOR YOU

I've arrived..
Fancy cars, the stage and lights
Thousands at concerts every night 
Girls swoon and scream my name
Giving autographs, growing fame
I survived.. Now I've arrived 
And I have everything..
Everything but you

So many love my music
They dance and party to the beat
Memorize the lyrics, get up on their feet
Yeah, I can woo the feminine masses 
These boys, I could give them classes
I survived.. Now I've arrived 
And I have everything..
Everything but you

I'm singing a familiar love song 
These girls wish the words were true
They close their eyes and dream of me
I close mine.. and all I see is you

Girl, I'd trade everything
Everything for you

Oh, I'd trade everything
Wish I could trade everything
Trade everything..
Everything for you

To Be With You

I should have held on tighter
When I had you in my grasp
For now I’m just a distant fading 
Memory in your past
My smile can hide the sadness
My tears are wiped away
But all this pain I feel inside
I live with day by day 
The pathway to my heart
Is just a worn and beaten track
But till I have you by my side 
I’ll just keep running back
You left me with a memory
That no one else can steal
But left me with a heartache
No one else can ever heal
What lies in my future now
What am I to do
How can I be happy
When in life I don’t have you
My heart just aches completely
Every hour every day
It’s only when I’m with you
That this pain will go away
I know I have to let you go
Instead of holding on
For you were never mine
To me, you never did belong
Bottled up inside me 
Are the words I've never said
Feelings that I've never shown
Lines you never read 
I want to live my life with you
Tomorrow and today
For better and for worse
Beside you all the way
To be there when you need me
Until this world is through
And when our time is over
I will spend the end with you...

BECOMING US

You're on a roll, just like a show, maybe I know
You light the way, I want to play, I'm ready to go

Strike the match, feel the friction, oh so inspired
It's getting hot, I've got the fever, let's perspire 

Like the dawn, morning sunrise, angelic voice
You call, I chose you, girl you're my choice

Your words, like braille, rise on my heart
My words, you could tell, right from the start

Embers ignite, what a sight, on a moonlit night
A lover's leap, I want your heart, I'll make it beat

This kind of flame, can't be tamed, don't even try
You're the one, let's have some fun, no alibis 

Take the ride, let's not hide, what's obvious
Hand in hand, you and me,  let's become us

What a rush, girl feel the rush..
you and me, 
What a rush..
me and you..
becoming us!

I've Touched Your Wings


"I could hold you for a million years, 
To make you feel my love!"

I've touched your wings
To make them softest blue...

Like the snowflakes, in Winter's silence, 
Swirling, softly falling...
To light your heart
In a velvet glow.

Wrapt am I in the feathery moonlit night,
Come to me, as the dark still shadows 
Of the clouds sweep low.

When the ancient spirits roamed the earth..
O, my love of long ago!

Come as the whippoorwill calls plaintively
To the night, when the silver light disappears;

I'm in the faint glimmer of rain,
I fade into the unknown --
You can trace me in your tears..

Darling Little Girl

Ever since the day you were born
I loved you from the start
And even though I may never see you again
You'll always have my heart

Even though your mommy and daddy fought
It all wasn't your fault
They just had a lot
Of growing up to do

And just because we haven't seen each other in a while
That doesn't mean I don't love you anymore
Just the thought of you leaves me with a smile
And it makes me want to just run over to you

And hold you in my arms and never let go
But before you leave me to go with your new little sister and daddy
There's something I want you to know:
I love you with all my heart

You are a part of my life
And my entire world
And no matter what
You'll always be a darling little girl

My Teddy Bear

 I sometimes get a little crazy and lose control
 I sometimes lose sight of whats in my soul
 My teddy bear steadily speaks in my ear
 Everything in sight reminding me that he's still here
 My teddy bear texts just to say, "Good morning beautiful. I love you."
 A random call in the middle of the afternoon just to say, "Baby, I'm here to pull you 
through."
 
 My teddy bear leaves a silent message everywhere
 My teddy bear leaves a desk full of paper and a drink in the fridge
 Sayin' baby take my hand and we'll build a bridge
 My teddy bear knows which song to play
 My teddy bear knows how to make me smile more each day

 I sometimes get a little crazy and lose control
 I sometimes lose sight of whats in my soul
 My teddy bear steadily speaks in my ear
 Everything in sight reminding me that he's still here
 My teddy bear texts just to say, "Good morning beautiful. I love you."
 A random call in the middle of the afternoon just to say, "Baby, I'm here to pull you 
through."

 My teddy is slowly teaching me to let it all go
 My teddy bear is teaching me to let my emotions flow
 
 I sometimes get a little crazy and lose control
 I sometimes lose sight of whats in my soul
 My teddy bear steadily speaks in my ear
 Everything in sight reminding me that he's still here
 My teddy bear texts just to say, "Good morning beautiful. I love you."
 A random call in the middle of the afternoon just to say, "Baby, I'm here to pull you 
through."

 I look around and see you everywhere
 Every moment reminding me that you'll be there
 Your wisdom and knowledge fills my ears 
 Your presence in my heart says you're still here
 
 My teddy bear   My teddy bear

Mobile

Why'd I hide it
Yeah that kind of riot
When you sigh and the silence shrieks louder than verbs and
And the direction the affection takes then
Pressures the perfectionist in-
To layman's ways of saying "let's be friends"

So the road is fired up though you know the tire's cut
And the stereo it plays "here we go"
It makes eerie tones
They come oh straight from
A joke even though
That's a story baby we both really know

Oh we're stop and go to gamble
And at lights hear advice
The rambles from a manhole

But let's not forget the device
It's mobile but not handheld
No the heart it doesn't crash oh before it gets trampled

The temple table's overturned
Turns out we're late
'Cause the clover caught aflame baby we waited so it burned
But that's okay
You say the gamble ex-changes it
It makes the coins get weightless and
And turns the green into an urn

Oh we're stop and go to gamble
And at lights hear advice
The rambles from a manhole

But let's not forget the device
It's mobile but not handheld
No the heart it doesn't crash oh before it gets trampled
No the heart it doesn't crash oh before it gets trampled

SAY YES

I want more than a pretty flower
What's inside that fancy vase
Who is this mysterious woman
That has set my heart to race

So what if we got together today
Girl, this could be our hour
Say yes, say yes, say yes..
And I'll have to take a cold shower
Then I'll cradle your heart softly 
I'll touch, you'll feel what could be
You'll taste a sense of awe and wonder
Oh yeah.. You'll want me completely

And there's more.. much more
So let's take a chance and start
I don't want to feel your breath, girl
If I can't feel your heart.. your heart

So.. say yes
Let's take a chance
Say yes 
It's time to start
Say yes 
I want this dance
Say yes
I want your heart

One yes
We'll be dancing
One yes
I'll call right now
One yes
To sweet romancing
One yes
Oh Baby wow
One yes
I want you now!

Promise The Moon - Revised

                                              When I say "I love you",
                                          Should it come with a price?
                                           To say I'm thinking of you,
                                         Are these words still unwise?

                                      I could fall for you a dozen times,
                                      And have the wrong words to say.
                                      Just tell me that I'm on you mind,
                                            At least I hope and pray.

                                       I've seen sunsets and sunrises
                                   And have spent so much time alone
                                        Should love wear no disguises 
                                         That I may call you my own.

                                          If I could have one chance,
                                         One moment to be with you,
                                  In love's fell clutch of gripping hands
                                         I wish to promise the moon.

Dreams

If only I can believe in myself
I know I can learn to love this life of mine
Still, I want to know the real me
To meet the one inside of me

If I close my eyes and dream
Maybe I can see it
To know and feel it
But I know

Dreams are still a dream
Although it is far away
I believe it can be reached
For just by dreaming like this
I am a step closer to it

If only I can believe in myself
I know I can learn to love the people around me
Still, I want to know that special someone
To meet the one that is meant for me

If I close my eyes and dream
Maybe I can see it
To know and feel it
But I know

Dreams are still a dream
Although it is far away
I believe it can be reached
For just by dreaming like this
I am a step closer to it

For All Eternity

As daylight dawns my eyes close
On another sleepless night
So cold and all alone without
Your arms to hold me tight
I look out through the glass
And watch the sunrise in the sky
And still I find no answers
As again I’m asking why
My nights they seem so endless
Then I face another day
So full of pain and loneliness
Since God took you away
People say that time will heal
That I’ll get over you
That one day I will laugh again
That I’ll find someone new
I only wish they’d understand
Why that will never be
I’ll never love another
For you were my destiny
And though I've tried to carry on
My fears I cannot hide
I just can’t face this world alone
Without you by my side
The tablet bottles empty now
And on our I lay
I put my hands together
Then I close my eyes and pray
Please God will you send back down
My Angel from above
Then he will gently take my hand
And lead me back to love
He’ll guide the way to Heaven
Where together we will be
Two Angel's who are blessed with love
For all eternity...

Jesus' Great Love Has Unfettered Chains

"Jesus, Jesus there is  just something about that name"*
Jesus
He is my friend and shephard
His great love has unfettered
Chains, I'm free
Now as if "devil never even lived"
Jesus' great love has unfettered chains
My life has been bettered
"Difficulties in life are intended to make us better, not bitter"*
In this wonderful country of USA
"Thanking" God, "understanding" his love, "granting" forgiveness, "enchanting" is his name, Jesus I'm "chanting"
For Jesus is my friend
And there Is "Something About That Name"*
Emmanuel, Christ, Good Shephard, King of Kings
Lamb, Messiah, Redeemer, Savior
Jesus, Redeemer
When I look upon His Face and see those loving eyes, happy my heart will be
For my heart now runs on empty
Sometimes feeling condemned,now let
There be today "something in clouds anew"*

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

As Raindrops Fall

Walk with me my Love
Beneath the summer sun
And talk with me my Love
Until the evening's done.

Stay with me my Love
Though all my youth be fled
Stay with me my Love
Please come and share my bed.

     With you alone I chose to spend my life
     Through all its many years.
      'Tis you alone I'd have for wife
     To share its joys and tears.

Let's call a spade a spade
All cards upon the table.
Live by the rules we made
The best that we are able.

     Tomorrow's sun may bring Anything
      Or perhaps nothing at all.
      Listen close enough and angels sing
      As summer raindrops fall.

Laugh with me my Love
Stars shining on your face.
Dance with me my Love
Within the night's embrace.

     A raven sits in yon withered tree
     Shall we stop to hear him croak?
     What of him to you or me
     Tomorrow is yet smoke.

Dream with me my Love
In the fading morning's dark.
Scheme with me my Love
In time we'll make our mark.

         The bells within the chapel ring
         Read words writ on a wall.
         Snowgeese gather on the wing
         As the winter raindrops fall.


Play with me my Love
Singing in the rain.
Smile with me my Love
Begone all present pain.

Live with me my Love
Until we both grow old.
Sleep with me my Love
My shelter from the cold.

     I'm all right now what I might be
     With your love in my defense.
     We face a thousand mysteries
     This life makes little sense.

      We face what ere the future brings
       As we heed the Siren's call.
      Touch the clouds and angels sing
      As summer raindrops fall.

Battery, Electric Personality

I don't know whether to consider it considerate or prideful
But I'd rather roll in coals and coil my soul with a barbed wire one-eyed cobra
Just to show you that
My emotion for you is
Nothing more than a-
Nother fortress I've
Built up just enough to save you from
Neglect

From time to time
I once wondered how one wanders from time to time
And think up the paradox line
Speak of Epoch's crime
Oh I lied, it hasn't happened yet
But bet you better believe it's such a habit that
I just said that in a past mindset

Chronologically
Oh darling don't you see
Honestly the honesty in the way we've deceived one another

I entered the circuit so you'd call me Sparky
Oh humor me
I'm at the center of the circle it's what you do for me
A little too witty to be just kidding
Because wondering is reality
To an electric personality

Chronologically
Oh darling don't you see
Honestly the honesty in the way we've received one another

Yeah the single signal
The waves we receive
Like a battery, electric personality
A battery, electric personality

Code Red: Army of Gods

She was intelligent enough not to tell the gentleman of
The access card to her madness of heart
He played strong suits in case his suitcase didn't make
The pursuit in hand soon cut to the chase
 
But this is business at its finest
When we promised we wouldn't try this 'cause
It's an -ism that isn't auto
Like the condition in my blood flow
Don't you know oh
You didn't know
 
And now it's code red at the marina
And the emotions bled because I've seen her
Venus in arms baby an arsenal from afar
Venus in arms with her army of gods
 
I fight emotionless
Since in my soul there's less
We're in suit
But you get the credit while they edit out the sects
Oh it's enough
Baby the -ism's from above
 
So it's code red at the marina
And the emotions bled because I've seen her
Venus in arms baby the arsenal from afar
Venus in arms with her army of gods
 
And she's in my arms
Like a victim of love
Yes in my arms
My victim from above

OBLIVION MODIFIED

Silence they say is golden and quite glittery
All it ever brings is pain and total misery
Everyone wants to be proved right
But none wants to be left out in love
A fresco of wasted dreams
A collage of aspirations cast in streams  

Silence I hear is golden yet so deafening
I try to speak it’s always a squabbling
Really scared to disturb the peace
Tried to piece back one good piece
It was only a wink in the dark
The pendulum did not swing back
Watched love in profile take a dive
Settled with the ripples of lies and unlusty lives

Silence I see is golden and so so dazzling
Autumn’s child came cool and strong
A blink all green in me was gone
Oh! The peals of heart break and it stings
If I could detach my manhood and cry for a moment
If I could reach back and erase that moment
I walked up and said “how do you do”

Twice I loved thrice she lied
Can this justify my disposition?
Kindly lace my Valium with deprivian
Kindly deprive me of this oblivion
So I could wake up to you
Lay what is left on you
Time tells if these would all come true.

I Wonder

What if I confessed my love to you,
Tell me just what would you do?
Would you match my heart with yours
Or would you leave me lost and torn?

What if you found you felt the same
And had only fate to blame?
Tell me just how far would you reach
For you to prove that love to me?

I am but a man
With love in mind and heart at hand.
Would you take this gift from me
In your hands or set it free?

All of these questions fill my mind,
But I know my deeds will come back in my own time.
And still I wonder why I can find no sympathy in these lines.
Tell me why, these thoughts have consumed life.
Sometimes I wonder, sometimes I wonder.

If chose to walk away
Would you beg me to stay?
Would you run after me
If I felt I had to leave?

Or would stay behind
And carry on with your own life?
Could you forget just what we had
And send me off to some unknown land?

As a memory I would have to stay.
Sometimes I wonder if
It would be better of that way.
Sometimes I wonder why
I can't find sympathy in these lines.

Still I wonder why: I am but a man
With love in mind and heart at hand.

All of these questions fill my mind.
But I know my deeds will come back in my own time.
And still I wonder why I can find no sympathy in these lines.
Tell me why, these thoughts have consumed life.
I still wonder why with love in mind and heart and hand.

Random Thought

I think that we forget how to be human, after awhile.
Our feelings harden, due to the other non human beings who cause us to build 
walls. These walls tend to keep out the actual humans who, just maybe, love us. 
The innocent who, just maybe, love us are also hardened because of the 
inhumane treatment put on upon by the first party.
In conclusion: This goes around and around and around. Humans causing each 
other to hate, fear, and harden.

I'm Still Loving You

To feel the rush, of your sweet touch
Your excitement, I beg to clutch
I'll no longer cry, I'm still that guy 
Stars in the sky, we're feeling high

To create, with such flair
Made my heart, reappear

I wanted in. but got pushed right out
Love you girl, without a doubt
My passion burns, for your heart
Looking for, a brand new start

The mud has dried, I can take a stride
My lonely bride, I swallow my pride
My time is yours, your time is mine
The sun will shine, and we'll be fine

We would create, with such style
Made our dance, all worth while

I wanted in, but got pushed right out
Love you girl, without a doubt
My passion burns, for your heart
Looking for, a brand new start

Come worship me, and all I give
Without you girl, I cannot live
You're stop and go, a ferris wheel
Let's get close, and make this real

"One Of Twain"


Come lay your breasts…upon my chest…..
………and we’ll  reminisce………
About the bliss…of our first kiss……
………as now love is amiss….. 
You must confess…when we first kissed….
…..our sweet love was bliss…
As time worn on…your love seemed gone…
……….we had sworn upon……
 The lonesome truth….romance aloof…
…..cause our love needs proof…
Lay again breasts…upon my chest…..
…..we’ll make love our quest…..
Make love anew…..in our pursue………
…..it's our love is blue…..
……..so let us renew….
When love seems lost…no need to toss…..
……summarize your loss…..
….. for love’s depth is boss….
Center being…lies love’s seeing…
….the supreme being…..
…..not human being…..
Come lay your breasts…on deep love’s chest…..
……and we’ll know the best…..
…… by deeper love’s quest….
Love’s twain marriage… not human courage….
…..of human courage…..
…..is not a marriage….
Lovers of mind…most intertwined…
…..though depth of a heart….
….is true love’s start... 
......Sweetheart!

BEN HUR ARKANSAS

I've  been a lot of  places in this land, 
From sea to shining sea. 
There's a  place in the hills of Arkansas
That means more than them all to me,
A little wildwood church where people meet 
To praise the Lord above. 
They don't have a lot of money,
But they're rich in a thing called love

You'll  see a friendly smile upon each face   
The moment you walk  in. 
They'll make you feel so loved and right at home,
That you'll want to go  back again. 
They will pour you out a cup of kindness
And hospitality; 
Then they'll take you home and feed you,
And they'll treat you like family.

You're always more than welcome; 
There's no lock upon the door. 
There's preaching and singing and praising the Lord, 
And they know what the altar's for. 
Don't look for a grand cathedral, 
Standing proud and tall; 
It’s a humble little church, beside the road, 
At Ben Hur Arkansas.

YOU'VE CHANGED MY LIFE COMPLETELY

You’ve changed my life completely
Can’t bear it when we‘re apart
For every waking moment
You are forever in my heart

I can’t stop smiling when I think of you
Love everything you say and do
Can’t wait until there comes a time
When I know you’re truly mine

A word from you and I'm wearing a silly grin 
You're the cream in my coffee, the sugar in my tea
I feel I can face the challenges of life and always win
You have become the missing part of me 

Because of you I now feel whole
My heart is full and at last I'm content
I feel your warmth in the depths of my soul
Every second with you is a second well spent

Just a smile from you and my heart skips a beat
With you in my life I am fully complete
We have our whole life ahead to share
You’re the love of my life no other can compare 

A million beautiful butterflies landed on us as we slept
They carry us to paradise where loving souls are kept 
Here we're given holy blessing for the relationship we share
The angels smile in heaven when true love is in the air

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.

Kiss Me Hard Before You Go

You've woken a memory, a searing desire, Ensnared my senses, set my whole world on fire. You still make me nervous, turn my insides to stone, My bastion breached, my resistance overthrown. A decade reverse we were in a different world, But a kiss from you and my toes would curl, I can not say what happened back then, Except how happy I am that you're back again. After all these years, after everything's changed, I think to way back and I still feel the same, Like we could conquer any mountain, ride any wave, Just lift a finger and I'll be your slave. Something good has begun and you're going on a jaunt, I'll have to put on my brave face, hide that I'm gaunt. While you're away, time can only pass slow, So do me a favour, kiss me hard before you go.

Certifiable Kiss

I have enough time
Yes 'cause love's alive and baby in its prime
Oh it is just like
Success ain't fun and games but for the saint's life

Yeah he'll pray but maybe Hell'll hit
Faithfully turn off the safety
Baby Cupid shoots shells with hollow tips
He'll lose an eye and they'll think he's crazy so
We'll say it gave him a gift
Baby the trait of a certifiable kiss

Girl I see you have more than usual
Yeah even before you visualize the visible
With a noble temper, mature and golden in a
A higher temperature than a crucible's molten innards

But there's a secret to your strategy
And it's a tragedy 'cause darling you had to be
So naturally keen at dodging me

And it's a line of defense
And girl you make a fence
So girl I take offense

Oh I know it's cliché but yeah they say that great men make it in-
To places few others who even do take the risk've ever been

But the only one in my blood that
That doesn't shine like the sun it
It naturally has to be the one where
I refuse to call it a pun when
I call you up to call you the one, there's

A secret to your strategy
And it's a tragedy 'cause darling you had to be
So naturally keen at dodging me

And it's a line of defense
And girl you make a fence
Hence I take offense

Oh to ward off Hell to reach towards Heaven
You play the chords
You make me insane but maybe I'll give you your credit
Oh to ward off Hell to reach towards Heaven
You play the chords
You make me insane but baby I'll give you your credit

Polynonsensicalamorous

I'm polynonsensicalamorous;
For me,
Romance is calamitous,

I woo and charm,
And raise some alarm,
When I try to arouse,
... By flexing my arm!

Some days its almost ridiculous,
Whatever I do, 
It's frivolous!

So I dress to impress,
But I'm always despairing,
When I walk through the door,
I hear: "What are you wearing?"

They told me love was fabulous,
If you want the truth:
It's strenuous!

When I try to hit,
I always miss,
That hug I got,
...Should've been a kiss!

But if all is fair in love and war,
I should keep trying until I score,
And maybe one day I will cease to fuss,
If only I wasn't...
Polynonsensicalamorous.

Apologize Me

Heart aches a great deal.
Feeling the guilt' real.
Pouring through my eyes is tears;
Unable to put in words my fears.
Though am the partial wrong doer'
I wouldn't like to justify as it is over.

And to you i sing this apology song,
As i cannot forget you for a second long,
For the mistake i committed,  knowing,
Just avoiding your advices from following.
 
Frightened, that the love you bestowed would cease,
I plead you to apologize me and bestow your love in ease.
Punish me with word or hand.
Never ever band me from experiencing your love,
As you are my second mother,
And my heart gives  no place to another.
Apologize me!

Emptyness

A place still lies
Lonely and untouched
Every night it cries
Seeking for its walls to be patched

A place still lies
But dead in its self
With broken memories
And an empty shelf

I struggle to find myself
In the midst of all the strife
But above me a cloud of darkness
So thick, full of sadness

The place will still lie
But not utter a cry
It shall continue to die
Because no one asked why

Bedroom Eyes

BEDROOM EYES    4-17-2013

I think you think I’m thinking something I shouldn’t;
That somehow I’d put you in a compromise.
You know I must be thinking something indecent,
Because I looked at you too long with my bedroom eyes.
 
I admit to giving you the old ‘once-over’.
If you think I’m being rude, I apologize.
But I’m not on the hunt for a one-night lover,
In spite of what you think you saw in my bedroom eyes.
 
(Chorus)
But when I look in your eyes, I see something to hope for:
Children, then grandchildren . . . maybe longer even more.
So if I look at you too long, I hope you’ll empathize--
There’s more than just desire in my bedroom eyes.
 
If you could read my mind instead of my gaze,
I think by then that you’ll come to realize
That I’m thinking about you in terms of decades.
I want to look at you for years with bedroom eyes.

TAPESTRY

.........TAPESTRY
Out of time that's long forgotten, 
in a light that's yet unknown,
you could see me in the morning, 
I would be there, but alone,
weaving tapestries from fibers 
of someone who'd never guess,
she is part of dreams and vision,
and somebody's happiness.
    But she would know someone was there.
     I'd touch her now if I would dare.
      And she would know I'm always there.

There's a story and it's Celtic, 
"We must love all things, to see
how a raindrop loves the flower, 
but the flower loves a bee."
In the tapestry I'm weaving, 
I have told this story well,
and the dream she is a part of, 
is the other tale I tell.
    She knows someone has touched her mind.
     I'm always there for her to find.
      And she is always on my mind.

It's a love beyond a question, 
but a love that's out of place,
out of time and out of reason, 
but unable to erase.
In the tapestry I'm weaving ,
there's no differences to see,
she is rising from the ocean 
to a love God's meant to be.
...And she has known a love that's good.
.....Though it is never understood.
........But she'll remember love is good.

I Hope It Never Ends

The winds here.
It's come to whisper secrets
And blow my words all to the grounds. 
There go all my papers, 
They never had a reason or rhyme.

I'm wishing you would call me
And spare me a short story,
I can't seem to find the mind to like any of mine. 
I'll hit you with a sarcastic punch line
And leave you with a black eye of regret.

Maybe one day
You'll be ready
To start just what you said.
Maybe one day
You'll be ready
To start just what you said.
I hope it never ends. 

I'm here.
I'm burning like a birthday candle;
Blow me out and make a wish. 
Oh so now you're not happy here.
I can't just relight myself, you can try again next year.

She's wishing that I would stop my writing,
But that's not what I like and I strike twice like lightning.
And the lighting doesn't help the situation.
It's cold in here and she's wearing my good sweater.
I start to feel a bit better when I get it back and it smells like her. 

Maybe one day
You'll be ready
To start just what you said.
Maybe one day
You'll be ready
To start just what you said,
My favorite loving friend.

And you know that all my works about you
And all my doubts about you,
You know it never ends, you know it never ends. 
And she hates every one of my songs,
But I can't be in the wrong.
Stop hanging on a chorus.
I didn't know that you were so porous
And that I could sink in so deep.
I really should sing with a disclaimer.
She hates all of my songs but can you blame her,
Can you blame her?

Maybe one day
You'll be ready
To start just what you said.
Maybe one day
You'll be ready
To start just what you said,
My favorite loving friend.
I hope it never ends,
I hope it never ends.

This Kind Of Love

This kind of love doesn't fall from the sky
This kind of love wouldn't end with goodbye
This kind of love leaves you dizzy at times
This kind of love never needs to wonder why

You can always tell how good love should be
Everywhere you look it becomes what you see
Love becomes moments you will say to yourself
You wouldn't share your life with anyone else

This kind of love didn't come with script
This kind of love isn't floating adrift
This kind of love you just can't put down
This kind of love keeps on going around 

Say you'll be here for each one of our times
When bridges break off at the end of our lines
If things go wrong and days turn into nights
I will be here to ensure everything goes right

This kind of love will set the example
This kind of love more than simply ample
This kind of love building upon itself
This kind of love in sickness and health

One Truth

Our present incapable to convey, 
beneath the heaven's sky, 
yet we share the evening elucidation, 
equivalent morning rise, 
my storm will rage your way, 
your gust flustering me one day, 
articulating thoughts of you...
and mystifies my life.

What Can I Do

You want more
What can I give you
What can I say
What can I do

I only know I want you

give me the day
Give me an hour
how can i stay
your blooming flower
give me your heart
give me a touch
I promise I wont
want it too much

you have more
this i can give you
I want to breathe
deep inside you

I only know I want you

Take me away
take me from this pain
i want to play
you make me insane
give me your time
give me your hour
I promise I'll be
your blooming flower

i want more, what can I give you
what do you need, all I know is i need you.

Ocean Eyes

Ocean Eyes...
You do not wish me harm
Yet you drown me
In your pools of crashing seas
Your waves breaking my arms

Your ships carry my thoughts
Your winds cool my days
Alas, my confessions kept at bay
Hiding under sand and rocks

Your heart has become my continent
I desire to explore your countries,
Ride your dreams,
Discover your forgotten memories;
Every string of music
that hangs from your trees...

Fate has painted my desires an illusion,
The heart's demise...
No matter how hard death tries,
I'll always remember you,
Ocean Eyes.

Your Love Is My Valentine


You’re as sweet as the moonshine
Your love is my valentine

Your heart beats like the sunshine
Your love is my valentine

You’re a falling star from the skyline
Your love is my valentine

Your smile is so divine
Your love is my valentine

Your kisses are true, and genuine
Your love is my valentine

You’re my angel, you’re my sign
Your love is my valentine

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

Gotta Let Their Soul Cry

 Raped and Molestated in childhood, 
   Abused and Misused in pre-adulthood,
     Alone and confused they stood; feeling
       like tainted goods.

 Let their soul cry, maybe then; they can
  regain their pride. 

 They gotta let their soul cry

 Their darkest secret's they lock  away
   within, this is why their flesh constantly
    feast off sin; and everything in life has a
     beginning, but never render an ending.

 Let their soul cry, Crying is the only way to
  gain their piece of mind.
   
One might ask," Why"? Then , I will reply,"
  They need to see at least one day filled with
     promise rather than pain and see the sun
        without having rain.
     
 They gotta let their soul cry, before their sin
  cause their flesh to die.

A Patient Savior

For years no time for God I had,
In a sin filled blackened heart.
Now thinking back it makes me sad,
That I gave my Lord, no part.

Now, I worship not a God afar,
In clouds that I must part.
Not one who's found just in a star,
But resides within my heart.

Something You Left Behind

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something I did not expect to find.
The sudden surge of memories
Shocked me so hard I couldn't breathe—
It almost knocked me to my knees.
My whole world came undone. 

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something that you wore when you were mine.
You wore it with your wedding gown,
Like a tiara or a crown.
It turned my world all upside down.
You always were “the one”.

I found something of yours you left behind:
Something that my love for you enshrined.
I found it hidden from the light,
That thing you used to wear at night.
That came down when I held you tight,
Back when we were one.

I found something of yours you left behind,
Something that I never wished to find—
'Cause there's no going back, you see,
To times when you were here with me.
You left a painful void in me;
But still life must go on.

I think of what you left behind
And then it came to me:
The saddest thing you left behind
Turned out to be me.

(Chorus )
I thought I'd gotten over you;
But I was wrong, you see.
You don't get over love that's true,
Nor what was meant to be.

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

Last Sunday

Rainy Sunday morning lying in bed
Stroking your hair, watching you sleep
My heart beating every beat for you
The way it used to


The train rumbles by waking you
Your sleepy eyes look up at me
I wrap my arms around you
The way I used to


Sitting having tea, enjoying the company
Talking about life and the rain
I can’t take my eyes off you
The way I used to


You lean against me, cuddling up tight
I hold you closely against me
Kindly, gently, comforting you
The way I used to


You lead me by the hand to your bedroom
We undress, kissing passionately, desperately
We hold on tightly and make love
The way we used to

Written in heaven

Written in heaven
(Lyrics – I Love you – Kevin Kern)

I was awe struck with, all your cuteness
Your full red sweet like, nectar lips
You filled my soul with, all your goodness
A beat my, heart, did skip

The night was young and we got talking
We danced away the hours till morn
For an encore I sensed, you baulking
I could now see, through your pain, your heart, was also torn

I don’t know who, would want to cause you heart ache
What kind, of monster, could hurt you so
To me it feels just, like a retake
As I have gone, through the same blow

We can find solace in each other
And make the most of destiny		
Maybe one day we will be lovers
Written in heaven it will be
Indeed be, simple glee

Interlude

I was awe struck with, all your cuteness
Your full red sweet like, nectar lips
You filled my soul with, all your goodness
A beat my, heart, did skip

The night was young and we got talking
We danced away the hours till morn
For an encore I sensed, you baulking
I could now see, through your pain, your heart, was also torn

End of interlude

I don’t know who, would want to cause you heart ache
What kind, of monster, could hurt you so
To me it feels just, like a retake
As I have gone, through the same blow

We can find solace in each other
And make the most of destiny
Maybe one day we will be lovers
Written in heaven it will be
Indeed be, simple glee

Indeed be, simple glee
Written in heaven it will be

the heart i never had before

Laying in bed with you this morning,  your breath hot against my chest.
Hearing the comfort in the rhythm of your breathing,  I can finally lay my mind to rest.
I wish I could lay in this warmth with you forever,  and leave the cold of the outside world far behind.
As you quietly wake it`s our bodies we can rediscover,  we will be alone together and forget the rules of time.

It`s your lips on my lips.
It`s your hands in my hands.
It`s your body close beside me.
It`s almost more than I can stand.
It`s your voice in my ear.
It`s to love without fear.
You are more than I could ever ask for.
My love,  your the heart I never had before.

I wonder is this what it`s like to be in heaven.
With you I feel like I`m floating all the time.
I have no other words to use to describe this.
Lost in your eyes, the rest of the world to me becomes blind.
With in each others arms is all I ever needed.
Being so close,  my heart melts into yours.
If the rest of the world could see our love  than they would feel cheated..
My love....you are the heart I never had before.

It`s your lips on my lips.
It`s your hands in my hands.
It`s your body close beside me.
It`s almost more than I can stand.
It`s your voice in my ear.
It`s to love without fear.
You are more than I could ever ask for.
My love,  your the heart I never had before.

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.

Country Life

The corn keeps growing taller every day 
Cut a maze through the stalks for the kids to play 
Me and you in the hammock gently we sway 
This is how we grow in a country kind of way 

Come out to the country, where dreams are made 
Come sing me a love song, a sweet serenade 
Come to me, my darling, you will be amazed 
Come to my heaven, where families are raised 

The sun in the sky, gentle breeze in the air 
All nature's beauty, for everyone to share 
The days are much nicer, the nights all are clear 
Out in the country, all our cares disappear 

Come out to the country, where dreams are made 
Come sing me a love song, a sweet serenade 
Come to me, my darling, you will be amazed 
Come to my heaven, where families are raised 

No smog in the air, just smoke from our bonfire 
No phones or electricity disrupting our choir 
All it takes to live, is love for life and desire 
Out in the country where our corn grows higher

YOU ARE SO SPECIAL

The moon told the stars,
there's nothing more beautiful than you,
The sea told the sky,
there's nothing more higher than you,
The wind told the light,
there's nothing more faster than you,
but,they all agree on one that is true,
there's nothing more special than you,
Thats why i say it with a beautiful clue,
I am madly in love with you....

The Things I Got Used To

I got used to your hi's and your hello's, 
Your smiles, your stares,
the stories and the jokes;
 
I got used to your sweetness and your surprises; 
The endless conversations and the laughters;
 
I got used to our love,
our sweet affair;
Your touch, your kiss,
the moments that we shared.
 
And then I got used to our differences...
the space we gave each other;
The days we didn't talk,
the times we didn't care
 
I got used to your silence;
the many times I asked to speak and you didn't respond;
Your absence while we were together,
'til the time you're actually gone.
 
I got used to hurting,
to the silent tears I cried;
but still I waited,
'til I finally just got tired.
 
Now I smile as I recall;
I got used to missing you...
and then not missing you at all.

In The Name Of My Lips


Only in thy ecstasy, let Thor-
The name of my weary lips rest
For mine soul, from long sleep 
Started waking sensual desires
To remember, O, how dalliance 
Inspired by flame, embraced us!

My So-Called Life

I smiled, then cried.
You laughed. You lied.
You left. I tried
To pick up the pieces of my life.
It shouldn't have been such a surprise.
I should have seen this one before I 
Fell too hard, got in too deep,
Before I believed that you were in love with me.
I smiled, then cried,
Because you laughed and lied.
You left while I tried
To get back to my so-called life.

Dont Wanna Live Without You

When things are going wrong
And your screaming in my ear
Telling me its over
Im begging you please take me back
Thats all i need 
Thats all I really ever wanted 
Please take me back
Dont turn me away
Dont put me through this unbearable pain
Cause it tears out my heart and puts it to shame
Turning me into ome kind of lonley monster
I dont wanna live with out you
Id rather die at your side
Its to unbearable to let you go
TO feel this pain
To go on living in this world full of rain
So please take me back 
Dont turn me away
This pain is to unbearable to live with
It tears out my heart and puts it to shame
Turning me into a monster


I cant live without you

" I HAVE A DREAM !!!"

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

Son

From the exact day your Daddy 
said we'd conceived You
Exactly nine months, to the day, 
we retrieved you

It is said You are so much like him
It's a wonder that I was even there

What is a "spitting image" do tell
Because I wouldn't want it 
in my mouth to begin with 

I thought Sons were supposed 
to look like their Daddy's
After all, they're born out of Love
Or did I miss something, somewhere
                   God Bless

All I'll Have Left

Lately I’ve been thinking about our love affair
And I’ve come to the conclusion we’re not getting anywhere
And, Darling, though I love you with all of my heart
I think the end is here and it’s time for us to part

Why is it so hard to say good-bye
Even though I know it has to be
It’s simply because I’m losing everything
And all that I’ll have left is me

When we first got together I was looking for a friend
But it turned into a love that I thought would never end
And now the time has come to go our separate ways
We danced to the piper’s music, but now it’s time to pay

Why is it so hard to say good-bye
Even though I know it has to be
It’s simply because I’ve given up my soul
And all that I’ll have left is me

I guess I always knew that it would have to be this way
But I was never looking forward to this day
Now as you turn to leave tears fall from my eyes
And all I want to do is crawl away and die

Why is it so hard to say good-bye
Even though I know it has to be
It’s simply because you’re taking all I am
And all that I’ll have left is me

Remember


You are the star that shines in my eyes,
I am the man that comes in disguise;
Like moths that flutters on wings of chance,
We fly into arms that love to dance.

On the balcony the rose vapor clings,
And the nightingale joyfully sings;
Bringing a light in my heart, a song of desire,
A flame in my soul to light the fire.

The soft embrace with a luscious kiss,
The sighing moments of divine bliss;
The still reflection of luminous eyes,
Where passion flames and apathy dies.

The archer's bowstring triggers a dart,
An arrow to pierce your reckless heart;
Fingers to tumble in your tangled hair,
Arms to hold, a time to share.

The hopes, the fires of lover's dreams, 
Flower in the light of soft moonbeams;
The mist of night flows over us till,
The wine of love has sipped its fill

Cant live with them can t live without them

I got a girl
(She wants more)
Call her from work
(She wants more)
Take her to the mall
(She wants more)
Buy her flowers
(She wants more)
Buy her chocolate
(She wants more)
Give her presents
(She wants more)
Pay her bills
(She wants more)
Take her on a cruise
(She wants more)
Introduce her to my parents
(She wants more)
Put a ring on her finger
(She wants more)
Walk her down the aisle
(She wants more)
Hold her hand
(She wants more)
A kiss on the cheek
(She wants more)
A kiss on the lips
(She wants more)
Run my hands through her hair
(She wants more)
Feel her body next to mine
(She wants more)
Uuuh Aaaah, Uuuh Aaaah
(She wants more)
Cuddle every night
(She wants more)
Girls, girls, girls
Can't live with them
Can't live without them

Give Me Time

   GIVE ME TIME
 
I have tears to be shed...
Books to be read...
Words to be said...
I love you.
 
I have a life to live...
and love to give...
I miss you.
 
I have memories to leave...
Moments to grieve...
And time to believe...
That you once loved me.
 
I have a horizon to climb...
Only moments of time...
to learn to love - me
 
Wait for me to do this
Don't leave me yet,
If you care.

Is She the One?

Is she the one?
I’m left wondering, if she’s the one.
Has a new love song just begun?
We’re having fun,
Is she the one?

But what am I to her?
Could she possibly concur?
For love to occur
I must be right for her;
Does she, me prefer?

Are we meant to be?
Or, is it a fantasy?
Has love struck only me?
Or, possibly,
Set us free?

If she is the one,
Our lives have just begun.
All others I will shun;
She’ll be the only one.
I’ll not have this love undone.

How do I find this out?
Should I, my feelings shout?
Even though I have a doubt
Whether or not she’s figured out
If I am the one she can’t be without.

I must stop wondering,
About what the future brings,
So I don’t ruin things,
Worrying,
Tugging strings.

If she is the one,
Tomorrow yet will come,
Our love will be hanging on
The feeling won’t be gone,
If for each other we are the one.

And I will know,
And she will know,
And our love will grow
As we get old
And our story is told.

I hope she is the one;
Please let her be the one;
My morning sun,
My journey done,
My love song sung.

To the Sea

To The Sea 

Sea, 
I look to you 
For answers 
To the questions that swirl like your currents in my mind 
Are you as unfathomable as my heart? 
Do your swells exceed the passions rising within me? 
Does your churning and pounding match the rhythm of my pulse? 
Is your water as cold as the loneliness here? 
Does the salt you contain taste the same as my tears? 
Does your thunderous crashing on rocks at the shore 
Equal the tempest that rages in my soul? 
Do you harbor secrets in your depths as I do? 
Are you roiling below the surface with anticipation? 
Do you long for a visitor to break the horizon... 
As I long for my Love? 
Does the wail that rises from your hollow reefs 
Blend with the plaintive cry from my lips? 
Can the overture played on your delicate shells 
Drown out the sound of my siren song? 
Sea, I have loved you, Sea, I have known you... 
We feel the same, we sound the same 
We give the same, we take the same 
We are one 
And the same 
You and I, 
Your mournful soulmate

I'm Ready

I'm ready to find the one who will hold me 
As long as I need them to... 
I'm ready to find the one 
Who I can start my life with... 
I'm ready to share myself 
Ready to share my love and passion 
I'm ready to move on with my life 
And finally find that happiness 
I've been craving for so long.... 
I'm ready to find that someone 
Who gives me butterflies, just thinking about them 
Who makes me laugh when I have a bad day 
Who holds me and says 
Everything's going to be okay 
Who knows me, inside and out 
Someone who wants to be with me 
Just because I'm me... 
Who will love me, in spite of my many flaws 
I'm ready to be in a relationship 
Where love conquers all, 
And nothing can bring us down... 
I'm ready to fall in love again 
Despite all the pain love has caused me 
In the end 
I'm ready to try again

On a Kiss

Silently star shimmering moonlit love,
Love’s moment moves me.      canopied night.
Whisper soft starsong melody shines;

To kiss, a kiss, we kiss             (a prayer)
Wings away in the glitter gleam dark.

Alas!           that kissingvelvet moments fly.

Devils only walk straight lines...

devils' cannot go round corners' 
evil cannot bend- 
it is mostly found in madmen 
...in many cases
"some married men"
 
they all wear bare face masks, 
the evil of the deciever is located 
in their eyes...connected to a rotten 
heart...here the deceit is beating... 

..."sin salivating demon"...

they are frustrated fallen women...
predators of women and children, 

you can find them on your t.v 
preaching Christian words,... 
more lies...
the flesh of young 
they love to torture, 

another so called "Christian, politician" 
to be exact, preaching against 
child molestation, 
found himself in prison, 
for raping children,...that's a fact 

the devils work, gives lips service 
to that of a spiritual demon flirt 

none of you can be trusted, 
you are all potential rapists' 
just a matter of time 
before your a%s is busted, 
before the truths' uncovered 

you Christian 
ass holes point the finger at gays...
when you are the real reason 
why you go to church and pray 

it is not to find your faith, 
for you have none at the start, 

...for you wouldn't do
the kinds of things
that break a childs heart...

you know it is only a matter of time 
before your life falls apart ...

hang your head in shame you bastard!!!
hang your head in shame... 

you're the reason why women leave men 
why so many despise your type
the heart of this man is not be trusted... 
from experience this logic commands 

...another supposed family man...
Hiding behind his family...his wife

don't preach to me you sinner... 
all of you make me laugh... 
you won't find me in one of churches 
your mind bending cult... 
perfectly built to house sinners 
your the ones' who take it up the a#s

this so called religion
you hide behind...
you yourself a joke...

Now I could write a passage
of compassion-be a real bleeding
heart...

but as adults who are we protecting
here...the child...or these nobs
these predators...that steal
a childs innocence...a childs dreams

there is no compassion
only an abyss I cannot forgive
anyone...anyone for this...

 for these kids
a life of nightmares dark shadows
and silent screams...they'll either end up
victims...or brave courageous...
strong and determined human beings...choose a life
of love somehow become a beautiful
loving person...

for devils only walk straight lines...
in God you will repent...
in God there is no pretence...

Forget

They say forgive and forget.
I forgave without a thought,
But how could i forget?

Forget your smile,
Forget your face,
Forget your love,
Forget your name.
No matter what I do,
I can't forget you.

I thought we were forever.
And so did everyone else.
I try so hard to forget.

Forget your smile,
Forget your face,
Forget your love,
Forget your name.
But no matter what I do,
I just can't forget you.

What happened to us?
Are you through with us?
I just hope you can't,

Forget my smile,
Forget my face,
Forget my love,
Forget my name.
No matter what you do,
Don't forget me and you.

If You Only Knew

If you only knew how i felt about you
You wouldn't treat me like you do 
If you love me like you say 
Why do we get to arguing everyday
I guess thats the way love goes
No one ever really knows 
If you want me,take me
It's the only way you'll get me maybe
I have a lot of things on my mind
But you seem to have me in a bind
That doesn't mean you have me on lock 
That just means no one can block 
The love i have for you is power
It just don't come and go in a hour
You got some really good i guess you think you do
But only if you knew

A Piece Of Lace

[Verse-1]
I watched you walk by yesterday, and yes again you turned and looked away
You never give me the time of day, and you're always looking sad and grey
A small piece of lace from your pink dress, is all that's left of you and me
Wish I could take back yesterday, when I went astray and set you free
I wish I could find the words to say, instead of making you look away
Oh! It's funny how a little piece of lace, makes me yearn for your embrace

[Verse-2]
I know that I still need your love, because my heart is always feeling blue
And I guess I'll never be the same, for playing around and being untrue
You gotta know this isn't what I wanted, cause now I'm always on my knees
But I can see how you like your freedom, of being with him and not with me
But baby a twist of fate's what tore us apart, and placed this look upon my face
Oh! it's still funny how a little piece of lace, makes me yearn for your embrace

[Chorus]
A piece of lace from your pink dress, keeps putting me down won't let me rest
And these cloudy skies are back today, holding my heart and soul at bay
I pray you come and take this lace, and wipe these tears from my face
Oh! It's funny how a little piece of lace, makes me yearn for your embrace

[Verse-3]
All those things that you used to do, is what made me fall in love with you
You gave me your all once upon a time, but like a fool I up and flew
And the things I went and said that day, made you fade and drift away
I never shoulda treated you that way, cause baby I need you here today
The sun keeps hiding behind the clouds, and all I do is sit and cry
And this piece of lace holds my heart at bay, I don't know...maybe it's a sign

[Chorus]
A piece of lace from your pink dress, keeps putting me down won't let me rest
And these cloudy skies are back today, holding my heart and soul at bay
I pray you come and take this lace, and wipe these tears from my face
Oh! It's funny how a little piece of lace, makes me yearn for your embrace

Oh! It's funny how a little piece of lace, makes me yearn for your embrace

this love this hate

This love 
This hate
is something we cant create
it makes us live
it helps us die
thats something that cant be denied
it makes us heal
it helps us feel 
it can even make men kneel
even though we are not the same
we can all be driven insane
by this love 
this hate inside my head
that makes the world wish it dead
so put all things away
rest your heads for this love this hate will fade away 
only when the world ends.

Why Must It Be

Can I let you go? Will you be okay? Where you're headed now...to a better place Listen to my words of forgiveness relieving this pain I'd give anything to have you back again To hold you once more in my arms, one more day of happiness you now dwell within my heart Your innocent smile is forever a distant memory, and the times that we share are precious treasures that I spend reliving The Shadow of Death Took you in just one breath Why must it be? I cry behind this closed door, searching desperately for an answer, yet all I feel is an emptiness inside... despair haunts me forevermore Why did you have to go? Why did you have to leave? Why does this have to hurt? Cancer robbed thy life from thee... Why must it be? Fly away Angel Child of Mine Trod thy broken paths, roam away, fly and be free... Why must it be?

Every Movie ever made

Every Movie ever Made (Hopeful)

The Summer I fell in love with you
Was like a video montage of every movie ever made
part comedy, oh What fun the laughs!
the good times, some of the happiest times I've had 
The good food. what love taste like!
The drinking being intoxicated 
I was making plans on you being my wife
This Romance was compelling!
Everything written in the stars for me
How far this thing could go No tellin?
The dancing, I pray the music never stops!
The love making, until they call the cops!

we saved each other and I could have been knocked over by a feather.
I was just thinking that I wouldn't ever find love again
Just goes to show never say never!
I could be bought for a penny
If I told you this kind of fairy tale did exist
I'm an optimist
I am a realist
She is a ventriloquist 
When she put her hands on me
She put words in my heart.
The lord put us in each others path
Now it's up to us to play our part
Now you do the math
Let's come into each others world add
Let's loose ourselves of baggage
Live out the rest of our lives
Try to salvage
Together we made a decision to purge; and I do mean all
We joined hands, took a deep breath although it's summer
Let's Fall!!!!

When the credits run and we make a curtain call, Hopefully we look at what this cost, vs the price we paid?
We made love, history and our very own love story a montage of every movie ever made!

A small corner of warmth in my winter soul


 

I can do nothing,

I am not suitable for anything.

My soul is trapped in a snow.

Yet there is a small corner of warmth

in my winter soul:

there is always the lilac

and tulips are in bloom.

The river and green forest

and the road to home are there.

All this will be until then,

while my beloved is near to me.

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.

My Trembling Soul (for Joy)

  So now again with day I wake
New mercy from my maker to take
 And for your love to feel my ache
   And beg his mercy not forsake
      My trembling soul for you

 Down on my knees I kneel to pray
 Rinse anew by the promise of day
   My lips linger that I should say
Lord, prosper now your gem of clay
    My trembling soul bids you

    I rise to see the landscape green
So sweetly dressed in the sun's bright sheen
  But saw your face there hang between
    Earth and sky, like a shining queen
      My trembling soul greets you

   Heaven has God, and earth has you
       My soul, a flower, has its dew
       And love its binding work to do
    For God's greatest gift ... so like you
    Trembles still my soul, to joy for you

My Lady Sadie

Looking like a
pixie,
Tiny in stature, big
heart,
You had me hooked,
Right from the
start.

Glowing like the
sun,
Warming up the
hours,
Your welcoming rays,
Giving life to the
flowers.

My lady Sadie, your
one of a kind.
The angels sing the
day you became mine.
My lady Sadie, I'll
always hold true
The beat of my heart
is because of you.

Loving like a
goddess,
Natural, free like
the breeze.
Wind blown brown
curls,
You bring men to
their knees.

Gifted with perfect
grace,
charming the sky of
stars
Jealous are the
diamonds
Of a love like ours

My lady Sadie, your
one of a kind.
The angels sing the
day you became mine.
My lady Sadie, I'll
always hold true.
The beat of my heart
is because of you.

My lady Sadie, my
sweet baby.
I love you madly, I
love you like crazy
My lady Sadie.

So

So

May 10, 2011

I love you so 
And in this lifetime you will never know
The love in my heart 
Has been there from the start
The first time on metrodate
The site of our union
We always had our ups and downs
But we weathered through the obstacles
To where we are today
And each day from here forward
Until the precious Lord takes me away
To the place of glory and contentment
But even in Heaven I will be
Watching over you and guiding you
To find the perfect image of me
To carry on the traditions of glorious marriage
Which you will not be deprived of 
While you are still young and beautiful
Which will never change?
For you beauty is endless to mine eyes
For the time being while I am still with you
I will always love, honor, and cherish
Beyond imagination and comprehension
You are my queen and the mother of my children 
Who will grow into the years? 
From youth to adulthood
Knowing they have always been loved
To the fullest extent imaginable
From this day forward
I pray these things in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
Amen

Chorus
Our father is always there
He knows in our hearts what we need
He guides us in our daily lives
Our father he will always be

My Parents

Every child has a parent and a story to be told, but not every child 
Has two parents, two parents of gold.

So unselfish, so giving, so much love never ending.
Always there for us, always in support of us,
Without any questions asked of us.

Down the road still living their lives for us.
They would never think of giving up on us.

We truly were blessed the day God gave them to us.
For his hand to mold, a parent worth gold,
Is a child's story that's rarely told.

For God has made them human that's a fact.
They fault, they sadden, they even sin in anger,
But, what my siblings and I have learned from our Mother and Father
Is no matter what, support one another.
For if one is falling, just be there to catch, without any questions asked.

Life is not perfect and we may not be our parent that our children see,
But, we'll make sure that they see gold supports their destiny.

Prevail, yes we will, because forever we behold not one, but two,
"Parents of Gold".

In His Arms

In his arms

In His Arms you bury your head into his chest and release tears of anguish fury and disbelief.
Gently he caresses your back and says those four little words you were longing to hear. Not "Everything will be alright" But "I'll make everything better" and at that moment a ton of burden is lifted from your chest and into his hands, but to him feel as light as a feather. Trust is elevated and at most high because hearing those words from his honey thick voice makes it ooze from his skin. Unknowingly you find out not only does he sympathize but he empathizes because once in his life not only has he felt the same way, but you'd once said those same words and lifted a similar burden from his body reassuring you of his motives of loving you.

His arms wear scars from childhood, hard work and labor, to him they're not appealing, to you they're a work of art. It should be part of the suffix ology because you've study every detail of his skin, down to the six beauty marks and a tiny recent cut on his left leg right below his knee.

Those arms scream protection when they're around you. Not just physical protection but protection from what the world thinks of you. In those arms there's no judgment, in those arms there's no need to be perfect, contradicting his kind hold on you, in his arms you are liberated.

Just longing to be in his arms

Just for You, My Sweet Kimberly

Just for you . . .
I find happiness in a smile
Just for you . . .
I long for the night
Just for you . . .
I walk an uncomfortable mile
Just for you . . .
I mean these words I write

Just for you . . .
I believe in a happy end
Just for you . . .
You and only you
Just for you . . .
My heart has begun to mend
Just for you . . .
I long for dreams to come true

Selfish as I have been
I hope forgiveness finds me
Alone here in the dark
Wrapped in what yet may be

I find myself
These fleeting moments remind me
I lose myself
like dust in a summer breeze
Just for you . . .

Just for you . . .
Tears roll forever down my face
Just for you . . .
I see a love both calm and true
Just for you . . .
I search the world for my place
Just for you . . .
A home I always knew 

Just for you . . .
Possibility breeds longing
Just for you . . .
Closeness breeds contentment
Just for you . . .
Love warms me deep within
Just for you . . .
I lay open my every sin

Lust
Lying in bed beside me
Home
Deep within each kiss
Rest
Hidden in your arms
Truth
With the parting of your lips

This kairos I will not lose
By blood and love I sign
I have been shown a path to choose
in which our hearts will align

Hazy and forlorn
Memories scratch at the walls of my heart
Crazy and worn
I feel myself tearing apart
Just for you . . .

Just for you . . .
I will do my best
Just for you . . .
I know that I can
Just for you . . .
Our love I will no longer test
Just for you . . .
I will be who I am

Just for you . . .
My sweet Kimberly
Just for you . . .

My Strong Black Man

Brown eyes so deep with anger and pain yet, so hypnotising and sweet they 
tempt my soul.

Lips so soft and warm, such harsh words for such gentle lips. Kiss me so I can 
feel your pain.

An embrace so safe and secure that could crush you and destroy that which is 
oh so pure- hold me closley.

I feel your heart,
I hear your breath,
I know there is love inside.

A sculptured body, skin of a king, I see you in my dreams-I feel you when you are 
away.

If only you loved me with a heart that's pure.
If only you'd let me in so I could love you,
forever and ever,
my strong black man...

Love went away

It hurt so much to let you go
It hurt me more then you could ever know
When it has to do with me you never really care
But I love you, Daddy, and I'll always be there

Even when my heart is torn
Even when when it's pricked by the love thorn
Even when we say our good-byes
Even when I listen to your lies

Your little girl is fully grown
Your little girl was so alone
So where were you dad
How could you make your little girl so sad

Even when I begged for you to answer my call
Even when you made me feel so small
Even when  I cried
Even when you were stuck in your pride

I always did my best
And even then you never were impressed
I never felt right, I never felt okay
Our love just went away

A Childs Prayer - God We Need To Talk

Tonight as my baby girl started to pray
She said God it's 8 O'Clock, 
And God We need to talk.
She said daddy help me pray, 
And daddy bow your head,
As we knelt beside her bed. 
she said God can you hear me?
Mommy always said you'd hear me,
If I would learn to pray, 
And that you would show me the way.

Well God I don't understand. 
Why you took my mommy away.
Daddy always says i'll understand, 
When I grow up some day.
She said God, you need your son. 
Well I need my mommy to,
And I know that my daddy, 
Would be happier with mommy. 
Cause daddy talks to her, 
And mommy's not even there.

God can you please,
Give my mommy wings, 
So she can come to see us.
She always kept our house clean, 
And God I know, 
She keeps your house clean to.
And God I miss mommy's big hugs, 
Daddy says your son gives hugs to.
So I know if my mommy had wings, 
She could hug me and daddy.

Well God I want to thank you,
For being there to listen, 
And God think about what I said.
And tell mommy that I love her, 
And God I love you to.
Oh just one more thing God, 
Help my daddy stop crying.
Thank you God, Amen, 
Then she turned to me and said,
Goodnight daddy, I love you.

I was still on my knees, 
Beside my little girls bed, 
With tears running from my eyes.
I gave my baby a goodnight kiss, 
And said sweet dreams baby girl.
Then I went to my room, 
And kissed my wife's picture, 
And with tears in my eyes,
I knelt down to pray, 
I said God, We need to talk.

Jesus is Alpha and Omega

your wash in my blood 
just like a flood
wash from head to toe
in your season you will glow
just wanted you to know

you very dear to me
I feel your sincerity
in the world will be
peace
 you and me



Your sacrifice is what I want
 life is short sorry to be blunt
I die on that cross
even though I am  the boss
I showed love nothing is lost
when I die on that cross
 I am the alpha and omega
my father made me lord and savior
I am in him, he in me
I was sent to do his will
I am the man see
no man can get to the father
accept through me

so look to the heaven and clouds
when I come my angel annouced it loud
Bold and proud,
everybody on those knee and bow
the WORD is here now

I Love Having You By My Side

I love laying next to you
I love being in your arms
When you hold me and wrap me up in your love 
And smother me with your kisses
I feel the warmth of your love
I love having you by my side
I love to put my head on your chest
To feel the softness of your skin
I love the scent of your body
The way I can still smell you on the pillows
Even when you are not there
I love having you by my side
I love to run my fingers through your hair
I love to kiss your forehead gently
I love to run my hands over your body
And smother you in kisses
I love when you reach over to hold me
And when you pull me closer to you if I am too far away
I love to look into your eyes when we first wake up
They sparkle and shine with so much joy
I love having you by my side
The hardest thing about loving you is when you leave my side
But loving you is something I just have to do
My life would not be the same without you
You make my life complete
Thank you for loving me
I love having you by my side

Tears

A great day ending in tragedy
now you wait until you get the news
I was scattered in different forms
The car door was slammed into my side
The doctor walks in to give you the news
You fall to the floor
Tears falling from your face
Your makeup running down unto your clothes
Making a stain where your heart used to be
I took you back into the darkest place of my soul
Something was different more darker than before
Now you wait until the funeral of your lost love
Your standing in the corner
Your face is covered in darkness
The blood runs from your eyes
How it hurts in the worst way now that im gone
Your realizing how much i meant to you
Something you havent seen before
Your blindness fades away as you start to see
You fall to the floor fainting
No one picks you up
They drop my casket into my little hole
Where i will stay all life long
How your tears fall unto the ground
Getting soaked up by the soil
Drowning me in your tears
Admire the past no more ways to see the future
Now that your starting to love me more
You wait until you see me in a dream
Dying like the past
As your moving on i fade away
I am no longer alive
You left me behind

Blowing In The Breeze

A child is born and placed into his mother's arms.
She looks into his eyes 
and promises to keep him from lifes harms.
If life was fair,
maybe that promise would have come true.
Life must run it's own course; 
she did all she could do.
I think of my mother often 
and I still cry from time to time.
Mother's Day is like a emotional chime.
I still talk to her at night as I kneel upon my knees.
When the wind is blowing I feel her all around me
as the trees dance with the breeze.
All of these feelings tell me she is helping me recover.
I forgive her- my lovely mother.
So I will talk to her again tonight
as I kneel upon my knees,
I hope she never forgets to touch me 
as she's blowing in the breeze.

Never Forget

He stood right there and watched me play.
He held my hand, kissed my tears away.
We sat behind the school all night one day.

He made sure I was protected
Every single second
When he was by my side and,

Even when he couldn't be,
He would constantly worry,
No matter how much I told him not to worry about me.

He let m fall asleep in his arms.
He always kept me safe from harm.
We used to be each others alarm.

We used to go to Jeeper's so he could play a game.
No two days with him were ever the same.
I always supported his dreams of fame.

His laugh still gives me butterflies.
Whenever he looks at me, I
Still get weak, just from looking into his eyes.

He stood right there when I faced my fears.
He held my hand and kissed away my tears.
I'll never forget our love through the years.

Feel ME..

Feel me an emotion deep inside your heart,a soft crimson rose reicarnated,
a red heart full of velvet petals ,birthed from a white wild simple daisy 
embroided in mystique passion,a bacchus of wine in finest aroma of verses,
and deepest thoughts of you.Feel me ,as I come back to you,in your night,a 
gentle sweet wind through your open window, caressing your face,breezing you 
in  a sweet dream,breathin you in,lullabying you on a ride just for two,me and 
you,in a beautiful  forest  by the lake,lying down on a carpet of golden 
leaves.Feel me there,once again,Feel me so very close to you.taste me,taste 
my juicy strawberry lips as we kiss,a wet kiss.Feel me in the fresh liquid 
raidrops cleansing your mind,from every worry,from every trouble, as i pat your 
back,and listen to you,to your wants,to your needs,and to your every 
thought.Let me listen to your silent voice,echoing inside my own existence!Let 
me feel you,your wishes,your dreams,your past,your present,Let me listen to 
who you are and what you are,what you want,let me be here,feel me,cos I am 
here for you.Feel that little soft spot in my heart,that soft spot full of 
love and warmth ,reserved just for you.Feel me as we dream,as we hug,as we 
snog,under yesterday's lanterne,in the park,holding hands ,once again.
Feel me as we walk and talk,smile and giggle all the way,Feel me as we lie on 
the rocks,gazing in each other's eyes,cheered by tamed silver waves,covered 
by a warm balnket of shining  stars,Hugging the golden Moon,in blue black 
velvet skies.Feel me as i dip my brush  in oils,painting this path,a garden of 
Eden,created just for you.A path of coloured rainbows where we can walk.where 
we can dream,where we can live and love,where we will never lose each other 
again.A path where emotions and feelings aren't hid.a path, where i will always 
feel loved by you,and you will always feel loved by me.Feel me a candle flame 
born just for you.I don't wanna go away again,I want to stay here with you.I 
don't want you to go away,I want you to stay here,with me.I want you to love 
me ,as you did in the past,I want to feel your passion,your love  once again,I 
want to feel your hearbeat,that heart, i loved so much.I want, need to know 
you love me still. Feel my love,cos i always loved you ,and I always will.Feel me 
as your  hand cups my breast.Let your palm feel the drumming of my 
heart,Feel me, cos I'm still so much in love with you.

Yea, I Thought Wrong

do you remember all the things you said to me
can you recall all your generosity 
you said you'd never ever leave me
 who would know how it turned out differently

you turned your back
you watched me cry
all of the days every damn night
i loved you and i still do 
i will i will i will i will always love you

under the covers im a lover im a fighter
i cant be broken but i cant put out this fire
you had your chance yes offense your a liar
yea but the truth really is your so undesired

its not too late to apperciate me
and say your sorry for everything
for all the pain you caused me everyday
its not to late yea its not to late

you turned your back
you watched me cry
all of the days every damn night
i loved you and i still do 
i will i will i will i will always love you


make up your mind make up your mind
you have got to before you run outta time
why cant you hurry up oh god oh god
please dont leave me here alone by myself to die

i thought i could trust you
i thought i could want you
i thought i could love you
i thought i could reach you

i thought i could breath you
i thought i could need you
i thought i could be every damn part of you
yea i thought wrong

you turned your back
you watched me cry
all of the days every damn night
i loved you and i still do 
i will i will i will i will always love you

but i still crave you
and i know no matter what i do
i cant stop this hurtin'
cause i still love you

APOLOGIES ACCEPTED

I waiting and looking at my cell phone
Thinking to myself I don't want to be alone
I hope she loves me and cares for me
Because baby I'm not the enemy
See I was so upset
So heated that my forehead started to sweat
Full of anger and rage
I felt like a cannibalistic beast released from it’s cage
I could actually feel my temperature rising
My eyes was tearing up and bulging
The adrenaline in me was boiling my blood I smelled it’s stench
I kept pacing the floor not wanting to sit on the bench
She knew she was wrong
I asked her did she love me and I think a hour of knowing is too long
Who do she think she is making me wait
I was afraid to call but it was getting to late
I didn’t want her to see me like this
So I sat there and started to reminisce 
Right there I fell asleep I guess cause my thoughts was so deep
All of a sudden I felt soft kisses in my sleep
When I came to she stood over top me smiling
There she was blushing and profiling
She had this look that was so sincere and true
Then she said it, “Baby I love you

There's something between us.
However, I can't  name it.
I only know it's priceless
And can be bitter or sweet.

There's something between us
Though we both still disown it,
It's a feeling of sadness
When my heart weeps in secret.

And it brings joy and passion,
I love it and I hate it.
Like castaways on the ocean,
We wander about and drift. 

It gives hope, light, or tears.
Invisible to the eye,
It's between us for years.
I know it will never die.

Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

Where have you gone Sweet Mother Of Mine
To that Wonderful Sparkling City
Paved with Golden Streets
And Pearly Gates
Where You'll Shed No More Tears
And have No Fears
Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

Thru brilliant stars Your soul did fly
Across that Heavenly sky
To join the Heavenly Host of Angelical Beings
In search of that Ivory Coast
To plant Your Spiritual Feet
With Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour
Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

To visit with Loved Ones
Who've gone Home before You
Must be a Sweet Reunion Indeed
Just a few short days and I shall join You
From the Cradle to the Grave
Oh' Sweet Mother Of Mine

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 The Distance I hear} A lonely Guitar

I need your kiss I need your arms, then
I need your kiss again
I want to hold you tonight, arm in arm
And keep you safe in this day of harm

I know you still have thoughts for me
Even though you wanted to be free
Now I'm down each day on bended knee
Cause these memories of you cause agony

Then off In the distance I hear a lonely guitar
Playing so softly but it's just to far
A lonely guitar echoing from a mountain top
Playing our song, Oh! I just wish it would stop

I wish you were here in my arms again
Cause my love for you is more than friends
My eyes do cry when I think of you
Oh! I just don't know what to do

I hold these memories of your touch
But the memories I hold's just not enough
I need your lips your soul your heart
Like before the day...we drifted apart

Then off In the distance I hear that lonely guitar
Playing so softly but it's just to far
A lonely guitar echoing from a mountain top
Playing our song, Oh! I just wish it would stop

A lonely guitar echoing from a mountain top
Playing our song, Oh! I wish it would stop
Oh! I wish it would stop

Enrico's Serenade

Like a morning breeze, 
dear, I come to you
with a soft caress, 
to hold you in my arms
forevermore.

Take me in your mind,
tell me you love me,
share your love tonight 
to last me all the days
and through the years.

Let my arms enfold you,
let my lips to kiss you,
put my heart on fire - 
a blazing flame 
of sweet desire;
hold me tenderly 
and soothe this soul
of mine longing for you; 
forever you will be 
my one true love, 
my dream,
my only sweetheart
you will be.

Like a morning breeze,
dear, I come to you
with a soft caress,
to hold you in my arms
forevermore.

(Based on Enrico Toselli's 'Serenata')

Night Writer

The silence is deafening in this house tonight 
I sit on the couch pondering something to write
light is dim, kid’s gone to sleep,
nothing creeps as I stare at blank sheets
I keep waiting for a witty dialogue in my head
but instead I’m brain-dead, should I go to bed instead?
Dogs bark in the distance, the instant that happened
My dogs started barking then I started laughing
An uncontrollable urge swept over me swiftly
I looked at the clock and it read 01:50,
I have time to write; the night is still young,
Took a sip of red wine; bitter on my tongue,
Stacked up the papers until they formed a pile
Came up this song though it took a while

Sometimes I see you sitting across from me; 
in my mind I smile a big smile;
I should go over there and run my hands through your hair, 
my love for you stretches as long as the Nile;
To lose you would be too much to take; 
to win your love, just enough
Though my ability to trust has been flawed since birth;
You’re so worth it that this won’t be tough;
Being without you would be like living in a black hole
A spot of infinite darkness in space;
There would be nothing to hide; not emotions nor pride;
I’d ride the rollercoaster of love in a daze. 
While you lay asleep, I’d lay awake
Watching you dream your sweetest dreams
I’d like to think we’re walking along the beach;
Hand in hand as a passionate team.
I wish I had known your soul before
I wish I had chose you back then

And with those words I closed my notebook;
I’ll finish this later.  The End.

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>

The future within

 It's been a long time I know,
 the future laid before us untold.
 What we both want for each other,
 no more holding back from what our hearts can usher.

 Now the decision is yours to make,
 the feelings between us have been anything but fake.
 The desire for more than we've had in a while,
 I can't hold back anymore to try and make you smile.

 Don't doubt what your heart tells you cause it was made for love,
 forget the anger the confusion and anything fearful you can think of.

 The future within is laid before our feet,
 both of us not willing to accept defeat.
 You know I love you more than anything in this life,
 my friend, my lover, my wife.

Be my stars

Be my star, 
the twinkle in my life
the little light to my darkness
the diamond in my sky

Be my shooting star,
 take my wishes and soar with them
take my dreams and aspirations and keep them
take my heart and hold on to it

Be my star,
the shining in my life
the bright smile on a dark night
the hope in my day that turn to nights

Be my shooting star,
take my joy and save it for me
take my love and preserve it
take my life and be apart of it

Be my star,
the remaining of warmth and a clod night
the hope that day will never come, because of fairs of losing you
the reasons for my existence
 
Be my star, My shooting star!!!!

What's the Difference?

What's the difference between day and night,
What the difference between darkness and sight
If you should ever turn your love away from me?

What's the difference between heaven and hell,
What's the difference between sickness and well
If you should ever turn your love away from me?

     I'll always need your love to help and guide me.
     I'll always need your love to keep me strong.
     I'll always need your love to keep the fire blazing in me.
     I'll always need your love to play the music for my songs.

     Oh never give your love to another's fleeting heart.
     Oh never let small differences drive us far apart.
     Oh never let your thoughts dwell upon our woes and sorrows
     Oh never let your heart forget there will always be tomorrow.

What's the difference between peace and strife,
What's the difference between wound and knife
If you should ever turn your love away from me?
What's the difference between gold and rust,
What's the difference between gems and dust
If you should ever turn your love away from me?

     But my soul tells me your love stands more solid than the rocks
     More lasting than the winds, immune to any shock
     It started from an ember, now it's risen to a flame
     No matter how we change, Dear, it burns on just the same,
     So I know your love's more constant than the blue within the sky,
     All mine to live and breathe within to the very day I die, the day I die.

So you'll always have your love there, a light for all my days
You'll always have your love there, a love that never strays.
Always there, to warm my heart, always there to take my part
Never lost to another's touch, never asking for too much
Never lost to another's word, my voice is all your heart has ever heard.

So what's the difference between light and dark,
What's the difference if I miss all my marks
Since you'll never turn your love away from me?
And what's the difference between Doubt and Sure
What's the difference between rich and poor
Since you'll never turn your love away from me?

Celebration on the Bay

I sat in a porch rocker and looked
Watching star bursts of wonder
Sparks with flair in the evening sky
Streams of light moving in splendor
So beautiful one must say, “oh my!”

I sat in a porch rocker and looked
As the grand orchestra played away
Sweet melody makes me give a sigh
Music and light blending a display
Horns and trumpets blasting high

I sat in a porch rocker and looked
Watching fireworks over the bay
Music rocking with soft thunder
Such a sight for ending a fine day
A celebration without a blunder

I sat in a porch rocker and looked!

Ernestine's Valentine

A day set aside for lovers,
Marked by hearts and candy.
This poem I give to you my love,
For I think you're just dandy.

Since our first meeting years ago,
I've been happy as can be.
And though I seldom tell you,
You mean the world to me.

To you this day my love I give,
And while sealing it with a kiss.
I thank the Lord for making us,
A team that couldn't miss.

WALKING SHOES

I’m tired of you.
Back stabbing me and not keeping it true.
Deceiving and lying
When I caught you, here comes the fake crying
The sad bedroom eyes hiding behind a guilty face
The phony kisses and the warm embrace
What you hide in the dark always come out in the light
Sometimes our secrets we thought we hid is revealed in our own sight
You claimed you loved me 
But it’s more like you hate or envy me
If you really don’t love me just let me be
Everyday I tried, believe me I prayed
But I hope you don’t think you’re here to stay
I even loved you when you did not love me
“So why are you still with me?”
So take your shoes and go
Don’t tie up your laces so slow
Remember I gave you love when nobody else would
I even took away your doubts that every man is no good
“Shush don’t say nothing don’t even talk.”
Just take your shoes and walk

Sitting On the Dock With Rene

I left my home, it  wasn't  so gorgeous,
but I knew I could no longer stay
I had nothing to live for,
seemed like only sadness would come my way,
headed for any deep water bay,
sitten' on the edge of sadness,...
wasted by time.....time...

on the bay of grief and sadness
I sat and wondered aloud....
how can I feel so lonely....
even in the midst of a crowd?

sittin' on the dock of sadness bay
wearing my ......crow....crown.....

I was royal fodder for sorrow,
looked like just sh_t would be comin' to me
I wanted so much to hold him,
but somehow   fate would not let that be.....

so I'm sitten' on the fringe of cryin'....
every day.....ay, ay, ay, ay...

I'd whistle if I could...
and if it'd bring him to me
for just one more day...
but my throat is simply too.
clogged with tears
what can I say?

I sit on the riverbanks
of mighty river styx
the river I've longed to cross
so I could hold him once more...
but sadness has stranded me
here, on this lonely shore...

for Rene, my sister in sorrow,
among the millions of us in
the dark seas of grief....

Her love 'pon my tongue

Fondle like
fondue
her love ‘pon

to match its warmth
I dare not do

Elizabeth,
Poe loved you

For the one
stuck at sea;

blankets,
warmth,
feet
and tea

My Love

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

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

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

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

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

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

Falling in love

Could I be falling in love with you all over again,
even though we have been together for years,
all of the laughter and all of the tears, I am falling
in love all over again.
Could I be falling for someone that I already know
so well, No one else could catch my heart,
 for you,  I have already fell.
Could I be falling in love with you all over again,
even though we have been together for years,
all of the laughter and all of the tears, I have fell
in love with you all over again.

my feelings

My feelings to u are the only thing I have
They are absolutely pure
I can assure you
And they can also cure
If you are insecure and unsure of yourself


I know that money can buy anything
I don’t have it
And maybe it’s a very good thing
Do you care? Please tell me
It’s important
Please try 
To  understand that money 
Can’t buy 
What  I have to offer you

My feelings to you are so deep
You won’t believe it
If you say NO to me
Trust me you’ll grieve it
You’ll grieve till the end of your days
You will cry
That YOU let me go
That YOU said “good-bye”

My feelings to you are the only thing I have
They have charms that allure
I am absolutely sure
That there was attraction between us
When we met
Please don’t reject me
Because you will cry
If you let me go
If you say “good-bye”

A Love Story

I sowed love's seed in your heart
watched it become,a towering Might
I coached you,how to embrace your dreams
and fall for your lust,it seems...
I taught you, the language of sight
when we talked love,at silence of night
I showed you, what's a broken heart
how it felt, when lovers went apart
you learnt how the truthful hurts
"looking for a friend,but passion,then flirts"
Had whims overcome my conscious fears
I would have not seen your flowing tears
By God ,i've been, so honest to you
I'll love you, love you, loved you

Tell me you love me

Hold me tight

Be soft and sweet

Promise me you'll care
I won't believe
I need to hear it
I won't believe

Say you'll be there for me
I won't believe
Be sweet as you can
I won't believe

If you knew how to be there
I would believe
If you kept a promise
I would believe

If you wanted to hold me
I would believe
If you showed your love to me

Her pt 2

She portrays me to be selfish
but I think she's just helpless
and I feel so foolish 
for letting her make me feel so selfless
and this insanity will consist until I dismiss and resist
giving into this repetitive mess
And as I proceed 
indeed I feel naive
to know I would repeat this same routine
from sixteen to eighteen
but it's such a relief 
to be able to release 
this disease
that was in my skin
and made me weak at my knees
and I'm pretty sure anyone in their right mind would agree
So now when she tells our story
she forgets to say
all the things she ever did 
to make me behave this way
and as she lies awake
shattered by the idea of what we became 
what she couldn't contain 
yet she's real quick to complain
I can't even begin to explain
why it was so hard to escape
why I always remained
I believed I was addicted to her
like a coke head is addicted to cocaine
Discouraged by the possible pain
but I've learned 
pain is the consequence of
happiness
it took longer than it should have to realize 
I can't be having this 
consistent irrational madness
she's still convinced I planned this
just because I revolted
and flipped the axis on our atlas
dropping acid
just to paint a clearer picture on the canvas

A Love Drink

I brewed a cup of strong tea,
Using hot, crystal clear water.
I hope I made it very tasty,
And you’ll appreciate its power.

I put it on a little table
Covered with a lacy napkin.
I like this aromatic and herbal
Odor penetrating your skin.

We sit opposite one another,
I look into your eyes furtively,
Watching you add a bit of sugar.
You say something to me, I agree…

Your lips touch the brim of the cup gently,
I wish they wanted to warm mine up,
And I desire wholeheartedly
That you soon ask for another cup…

She Drives me Crazy 3

Her skins as soft as a baby angel
I love her hair each silky strand
When she smiles like one million candles warm
I long to hold her hand
Now i know of love and have felt it's touch
just but once upon my heart
Yet this woman has touched me this very way
right from the very start
But all we love is not ours to have 
not to hold to taste or touch
So there is sadness amidst the joy i feel of wanting you so much
Yet I wont arrest my need for love and joy
these two things i hold so dear
So I will allow myself to feel the gentle warmth
which greets me when you are near

Lost Love

As I sit here I wonder why, Why, My Lost Love Why couldn't it have worked Why My Love We each knew our Love for each other But knew what the consequences would have been So we went our separate ways Knowing full well, We'd never Be totally Satisfied Again Until We could be together Why Lost Love, Why Is there some meaning to this Madness I sit and Cry for You, My Love Knowing why I stayed in this situation, Does nothing to ease my pain I Miss You, My Lost Love You have forever been in my thoughts Love If there Is A God In Heaven, Surely, He'll Give Us Another Try My Love I try so hard to be strong, To show no signs of distress Yet, he knows something is wrong, Senses a change in me He's trying so hard, To make right the unjustly wrongs Lost Love Yet my thoughts and fantasies remain Around our times in each others embrace I only wish I could have told you again in person But I'm sure You already know There'll Never Be Another My Love, My Lost Love Is there supposed to be a grieving period I don't know, I only know I hurt, A deep Soul Hurting Like a part of me has died Love, Lost Love

Souls pouring out—reaching out
Out to the world for redemption
Redemption of the inner spirit
Spirit of natural sanctification
Sanctification stimulating the mind
Mind of elevating jubilation
Jubilation of living creation
Creation pointing the way
Way to the creator

A Lament

Your cold lips,
Your frozen Figure...a sad emotion you expelled.
I touch your shape, trembling at the source.
Modeling away to my cheeks.
At sunrise we slept,
At midnight we loved.
The stars and the clouds draw us layouts of dreams,
an enchantment,
our elixir of love.
Hands slept in our grave, a singing hymn.
We drank each other's memories.
We danced until the moon was put to sleep.
Covered ourselves with petals of Rose, 
Bare to the despair, the sun presented.
Decaying, and never growing old.
We fulfill these lavender caresses everyday.
Immortals, will will always love.
We will always be together...
Lovers in time.
Vampires in a dream,
A reality to me coming true.

hate is not the word for it

I eyes popped out of my head when I saw you with that girl
Boy, was I highly upset and you told me I was your world
I believed you and everything else that you told me
But I was blind but God, he helped me see
I hate you I hate you make me so sick
You lied to me saying that I was your only chick
You want to know something I'm tried of your mess
I got to get away from you and get this off my chest
But its alright and it is all good
I'm happy you did it before I would
After all them minutes, you wasted my time
It is all right you was sour like a lemon lime
That is all I have to say my work here is done
Piece out don't call me call the other one.

Seed

To lie is like a seed being planted into the soil,
and just waiting for it’s down roots.
Every time another lie is told this seed gets water,
as the watering continues, the seed begins to grow.
And up sprouts the plant, the plant in which you the individual has given life to, for 
this seed is not a flower, is not a tree, is not a fruit to give to thee, but a weed, a 
weed of such destruction that destroys all other life surrounding it. By taking it’s 
roots, the roots of pure loving flowers, pure loving fruit and pure loving small 
trees.
Destroys them.
Strangles them.
As this weed continues to get watered it shuns them, grows taller then them, 
allows them no sun light, allows them no room to grow or to breath, so in the 
end, they parish.
And all of the truth that was planted before this has died, and the only thing left in 
your garden,
Is your pathetic life.
And this weed,
That was once a SEED.

My Plum

I'm a lad, seven and ten

Don't know why I hold this pen.

I'm just a kid, caught in the middle.

Life is a maze and love's a riddle..

 

 

Cute little girls, when I do see,

I smile at them, they wink at me.

I'm a bit shy; but do say"Hi.."

To impress 'em, well I do try.

 

 

There's this cutie, who lives round the block

It is seldom, but we do talk.

She's a doll, with a  zest for life-

Beauty like her,-  well that ain't rife..

 

 

My heart beats fast, when her I do see,

Only god knows what she thinks of me?!

She stays with me, night and day

I don't know what else to say..

 

 

It is love- Or maybe just a phase;

But It sure is a damn good craze.

 

 

GLOSSARY :

1. lad- young boy.

2. seldom- rare.

3. zest- a feeling of enthusiasm, excitement.

4. rife - common..

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.

Everyday Regrets

        Every Everyday I feel the same old mistakes brushing up my leg and heading 
striaght for my heart. Trying make me sting... stupid memories, I can't shake them away 
and they just make me feel everyday regrets. I knew you were leaving, I could feel it 
inside. Yet it seemed like life just kept moving on... it never let me stop for a minute 
to see how you were doing and I blame myself for not saying good bye. Sometimes I cry 
when I think about you... sometimes I wonder why I didn't just go see you. One more 
mistake and my heart keeps on aching. I'm not ready for this but even so it kills me. 
Everyday regrets about the times i'll never forget and the things I never got to say. I 
know your looking down on me trying to console me but in my mind everything went wrong 
and I wasn't even there... you just passed right along and I couldn't even hold your 
hand. I wanted to be there... I had grown up a lot since this ever ending roller coaster 
ride and just as I was getting off the dizziness still hadn't worn off. You were taking 
away in the middle of the night... I wasn't even there and that makes me sad. I didn't 
hear you voice... I didn't show any remorse and it hurts me deep inside that I will never 
see your heart beat again or see you talk to me like you used to do. Everyday Regrets and 
I keep on blaming myself in a story that just won't ever end and will continue until I 
see your face again. I won't forget, I will remember... I disappointed you and that's all 
I can say for now goodbye is hardly the words I ever wanted to say. But now your gone and 
i'm living with everyday regrets.

You're My Man

You're my man, my mighty king,
And I'm the jewel in your crown,
You're the sun so hot and bright,
I'm your light-rays shining down,

You're the sky so vast and blue,
And I'm the white clouds in your chest,
I'm a river clean and pure,
Who in your ocean finds her rest,

You're the mountain huge and high,
I'm the valley green and wide,
You're the body firm and strong,
And I'm a rib bone on your side,

You're an eagle flying high,
I'm your feathers light and brown,
You're my man, my king of kings,
And I'm the jewel in your crown

Burning One More Bridge

Tonight, I'm burning one more bridge
As I find myself, walking this lonely highway
Her eyes and her smile, now just a gray cloud
A bridge once warm, slowly fading away

Looking back in the darkness, I see
Reflections of tears, there upon her face
Her long flowing hair, disappearing in a crowd
An endless love, gone without a trace

Tonight, I'm burning one more bridge
Thought this one, would stand the test of time
Never thought, love could fall so hard
So tonight, I'm burning one more bridge

Tonight I see memories, dancing across the sky
Two bodies holding on, to loves distant star
As the sky darkens, I fall to my knees and pray
For this time, we just went a little to far

Tonight, I'm burning one more bridge
Thought this one, would stand the test of time
Never thought, love could fall so hard
So tonight, I'm burning one more bridge

Never thought, love could fall so hard
So tonight, I'm burning one more bridge

The Coal-Est.hot Item

(Inspired by the genius of Ms. Norey Bailey. Please check her out )

Soulful sista
Strolling in her full spirited stride
Just couldn't hide
From my heart's searching eye's
that I swore I
wouldn't allow to be blinded by this mindless modern day luv no more
Until that particular half second
I wanted to run-------grab her by the hands!!!!!! 
AND......
take her down to see the Reverend

I didn't have any spare time that was to be wasted
Wanted to recycle my trashy reputatation
Strip
      Down         My image                                                                      Un-til- it was raw

So that.....
It could be steamed and not fried
BLESSED
Not viciously devoured
  Hope that I'm a genourous helping
That'll nurture your body and soul
and in no way be unhealthy
One who'd always fill you up, never leave you empty
Be your top and bottom money maker and not once will you ever have to pimp me

Easy to open
Hard to tear apart
I play a game thats not a game & i trump any Player's card
I'm what the mighty-dollar can't buy
And I'm the same thing that stores just don't sale

I want You

Thinking of why I want you,Why I need to feel your touch
It's a feeling sweet and tender'that I enjoy so much

Just to see you smile makes my heart skip a beat
And when you touch me with your lips.chills run from my lips down to my feet

When we walk the street and I hold your hand It's a feeling so secure
As if my heart was sick and lonely and in you I found the cure

So now when I hold and pull you  close to me
It feels so very special because it's the place I long to be

Dead End Road

Been walking this road, with  two dead ends
Your memory keeps returning, again and again
The moon doesn't glow and the stars don't shine
And as I search for your face, I keep falling behind

I looked at my watch, seems it stopped yesterday
So I take a deep breath, and continue on my way
I stare at the darkness, and see nothing but black
As I listen for sounds, A chill crawls up my back

I've worn a hole in my shoe, a week ago today
My eyes are so tired, but  there's no where to lay
It's so dark and lonely, as I try to keep pace
For this dead end road, has taken your place

My mind starts to worry, if you'll ever return
As the dark turns to gray, your arms I still yearn
I realize were through, as I rest for awhile
For I no longer can search, or walk one more mile

I've worn a hole in my shoe, a week ago today
My eyes are so tired, but  there's no where to lay
It's so dark and lonely, as I try to keep pace
For this dead end road, has taken your place

ONLY IN DREAMS

I had the strangest feeling
Wanting to live in dreams
But its only there I could have her
The lady I love so true
It makes me feel so blue
That I could have her only in my dreams

And when the night has ended 
And the day has began
I turn to a sad and lonely man
Knowing she is out of my reach
And the distance can’t be breached 
Except only in my dreams

She must know how I am feeling
'Cause she sends me reeling
 Every time she says
You’re wasting your life away
Trying to live in dreams
Wake up from your dreams

In the real world I look cool
I got everyone fooled
But nothing is as it seems
Cause I only want to live in dreams
To love her in my dreams
To stay living in dreams

Strange as it may seem
That is what  all the world means to me
To be living in dreams
Nothing better that life can bring
Than what I get in dreams
The lady who is my queen woman of my dreams

I really need a break
I’ll put everything at stake
You can take my life away
If it’s the price I have to pay
For wanting to live in dreams
With the lady of my dream

Dealers' Choice

Passions past and the sadness settles in
whispers never
It’s so fast we just started to begin
Now’s not ever
Nothing we can do lasts forever
We’re leaving all the time
Why so blue
It’s exactly what we knew
Was going to happen
Teenage love is just experimental
Couples getting down to elemental
And then it’s gone
life goes on
But nothing’s quite the same
If you want to play the game
Know what you’re trying to win
When passion’s past
And the gladness settles in

Mirror with a Gun

Cast attention on the dreams we have caught
They’re nothing of our own
Filtering our hearts right through the dark
Until we give in to the unknown

Casting lights upon the pointless death
In the wars that we’ve become
It’s so sad to see what will really die
The part we kill because we run

Cast attention on the lies we create
Manifesting every fear
Will these walls protect me from the pain?
Will the static drive the tears?

Casting lights upon the obvious truth
That we can’t remember love
Because every notion that we think is right
Was not handed from above

Cast our questions into timeless stone
It’s time to walk away
Step again into the lonely dark
It’s time to feed the pain

Casting spells that only weave an end
This is what we’ve become
Friendly faces that will kill again
We’re just a mirror with a gun

LONELY AND SILENT ROAD

Every young face I see...
reminds me of Marlene's pretty eyes;
as her softly-spoken words
echo in my wonderful dream!

I stroll along 
the lonely and silent road
without holding her hand,
remembering everything we said!

The reddish leaves
fall off the tall trees;
the lonely sparrow
flies away to hide his sorrow,
and I feel like him
without a happy song to sing,
without words to say...
just wasting away!

By the end of this day,
I'll smile behind the warm teardrops...
remembering our sweet joy:
never to feel it again,
or to give it with happiness
to my beautiful Marlene!

Long and silent road,
why life and destiny
hold me back without a reason;
If I am to blame...
I apologize for my vanity,
but how much do I have to pay
for that wrong decision?

Long and silent road
grant me this last wish:
can I hope to see Marlene
walk with me again?
Lonely and silent road,
when will I forget what I miss?

Once broken, but not destroyed!

As I look back over my life, my heart was broken but I wasn’t destroyed,
Many people tried to take advantage of me like I was some kind of a toy.
When I was a child, I had this fixation that I knew what love is all about, 
I cried a lot because that was the only way for me to get things out.
As a teenager, I lost the dearest person to me, who was my mother,
I was angry with God because the pain that I felt was like no other.
My parents taught me how to be the best Christian all I can be,
When I finally got to know God for myself, I was definitely set free.
As I became older I carried around so much hurt and so much pain,
I know I wasn’t easy to deal with, but the family must have felt drained.
At times I had to express my anger by fighting and hurting myself,
The more I keep writing, one day I will see my book on the bookstore shelf
The most devastating thing I remember was the time I was raped,
At the time it was happening I didn’t have the strength to escape.
It also hurt when no one had faith enough to believe in me,
I tried to deal with the rape by becoming rebellious as I can be.
I thought by going to talk to a psychiatrist would have helped replace my anger,
Instead of making things better, he just helped himself on me and putting me in 
danger.
I didn’t want to live after all these things that happened in my life,
If I had killed myself, today I wouldn’t have become a wife.
A lot of people thought that I wouldn’t make something of myself,
They would look down on me like I was some kind of weird elf.
Through all of this, God showed me what TRUE love was all about.
I have to give him all the praise and honor with a loud shout.
I was a type of person that was definitely misunderstood,
I just wanted somebody to take the time out with me if they could.
Well, the devil thought that I was destroyed but I was yet broken,
I can truly say that I’m no longer his rebellious T-O-K-E-N

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.

To late not to fall

Laying here in bed at night
Pulling the covers around me so tight
Watching the candlelight fire dancing
Playing wildly on my ceiling
Inching down my walls
And I think it's about time to give it my all

It's too late not to fall
You've pulled me in, heart and all
Maybe it's the wrong thing to do
Wanting to spend my life with you
May be the wrong move to make, the wrong shots to call
But now it's too late not to fall

I quietly listen to the sound of my breathing
The love struck pound of my heart beating
Like a soft secret whispering 
Of mysteries between you and me

No more than this sounds through the night
But in the void of the dark there is still a light
And your love feels me with a soothing lullaby
A hypmotizing song of you and me
Engulfs me in a suductive love sea

While lying here with this all surrounding me
Past hurts I just can't remember to see
I only let go and dream
Of your promises of good things yet to come
and I anxiously wait for each and every one

It's too late not to fall
You've pulled me in, heart and all
Maybe it's the wrong thing to do
Wanting to spend my life with you
May be the wrong move to make, the wrong shots to call
But now it's too late not to fall.....

I Found Out Today

I found out today you had never been true
You were with someone else when I was seeing you.
You took my love, my heart, my trust
And all it meant to you was lust.

I found out today that you gave her a ring
While talking with me about the same thing
And pledged your vows and made her your wife
And swore to stay with her the rest of your life.

Was it just a race?  Was it just a game?
Did either of us matter or were we just the same?
Did you really care which one of us said yes first?
Here I thought when you left me you had done your worst.

I found out today the ink was not yet dry
On the decree from your previous lie.
I was just one of many, a face in your crowd
Being duped by you does not make me proud.

I found out today I will get over you
I will hold my head high, I will get through
You have made me a skeptic, you have opened my eyes
I will not so easily fall for men's lies.

One day if I chance to see you on the street
If our paths should cross, if our eyes should meet
I'll forget the deceptions, the lies you would say
I'll remember the truth that I found out today.

HAPPINESS

I have learned what happiness is
Its something I learned last night
Its when someone you love is in danger
And the remedy may not be a cure
when a heavy load lays on your heart
And the prognosis is very unsure
You wait through the night and the blackness 
Your fingernails chewed to the bone
Pace up and down in the darkness
Knowing you face this alone
Will he come back or will he depart
I can't stand the tension, its breaking my heart

At last it is morning, the dawn breaks at last
I turn on my PC, and hope news comes fast
At last there's a message, I hold my breath in
Is he still with me, I don't want to hear
Please don't let it be bad news, I cant take that in
I read on the screen through eyes blurred with fear
“Sir has come back and the doc says he's great”
I let my breath out and burst into tears
My darling is back, my sweetheart, my lover
With love and good  care I'm sure he'll recover
My heart is full to bursting, it's pulsating a song of joy
Yes I know what happiness is, 
The return of my darling boy!

Ur Angel of Sadness

I once was your Armageddon, your mystic legend
Times we argued, realized it was foolish and grinned
Times we laughed, time is a luxury we do not have
Let us old hands old man
The lady beside you, she sang a beautiful tune 
The things we don’t want to lose 
The loved ones we hate, similar to the above sons mate
The people we want to please 
Those we set a perfect yet fragile image
Only to be later ceased
Precious moments we so desperately want to keep 
Shh! You speak as though you’re never coming back
But I will not return, best wishes, Ur angel of sadness
I’m a survivor
I work miracles, I was yours
I was everything and nothing anyone would care for 
I am still your Armageddon, your mystic legend
My objectives to make you laugh, smile, and mourn
Your rapture, warriors of eternity, a child lost and torn
Mission suffered massive failure 
Let us hold hands this final hour
For your misery is ours
You can say you loved him
You can say you placed no other above him
Despite how it sounds
The individual will everyone around him
Is the loneliest person around
In memory of those whom titled him “Angel of Sadness”

Captivity

Your presence holds me captive
I don't know if it's the way you talk
Or the way you walk
Something about you has me held in captivity

Your personality has a hold on me
I don't know what it is
But your charm just won't let me leave
Boy I swear, something about you has me in captivity

Whenever you come around, I become someone new
I begin to speak and do the things that you want me to
You've got me held captive, I don't know what's happened to me
But is this really captivity, if this is where I want to be?

Loves doorway...

I was reading the paper... 
in the green room, 

you walked in the door, 
I didn't know you, yet, 
of you I wanted more... 

excited, elevated, sexual tension- 
this spark, this feeling, 
sent me reeling... 

uncompromising, release... 
nearly, thirty moons on, you still 
give me this charge-my sweet
tease... 

more experienced, this feeling 
lasts longer, stronger, powerful 
sweet interlude, 

...my only one, we delight in sharing 
this mood... 

woman, you make me
...for days on 
end I carry round...this payload, 
take it from me before I drop, 
this love exploding 
I'm going to pop... 

I am intoxicated in your kiss... 
you are my love promise... 

you removed the locks, 
on this loves' doorway... 

this love destined, to rewrite 
the truth, the ancients recorded 
from above...historical proof... 

all woman, who feel this and allow 
truth to enter...live in lavish love 
sweet, sweet, rare splendor

Take Nothing For Granted

I deferred the words " I love you"
Until the morrows light.
Words, that from my heart,
I felt impressed upon to say.

For sure, "I love you",
Would have best been said that night.
Still I reserved ownership,
For perhaps some abstinent day.

Instead, from my vast reserve,
Grating words were launched to flight.
Words that once I'd spent,
Could never be recanted.

I had failed miserably,
At living life in the moment.
So, doting on another days sight,
I had taken our time for granted.

The next day's sun, I found,
Rose not for both alike.
Albiet the sky was blue and bright,
My day was overcast.

For from my life,
I allowed to slip, a love untold,
Now I'm forever yoked with regrets might,
Hard and fast.

Regret is felt always when it is too late.

Still

I Still go to that same park, down that same lonely street
I Still sit on that same bench, under that same tree
That one where I carved our initials, in a heart on the bark
That night when we kissed and you gave me your heart

I Still remember that night, when we thought we were alone
I Still see how you looked, when you smelled his cologne
That man passing by, holding his wifes hand
That night when we made love, right there in the sand

I Still have these memories, of holding your hand
I Still have your picture, beside my bed on the stand
That one with your tears, that I made fall from your eyes
That night when I broke your heart, and told you those lies

I still can't believe, that I made you go away
Cause I still see you in the mirror, when the sun shines it's ray
That mirror on the dresser, yes your brush is still there
That one that you'd use, each night on your long flowing hair

Oh! darling I still love you, Yes I still love you
And I know when my life's over, darling I know I still will

The Freedom of my Soul

The freedom of my soul is my one goal
The freedom of my soul, I can't afford to
let it grow old.

You! You are the chain that binds my brain. 
I must find strength  within, my life I must begin 
again.

And though this move of my desire will hurt me bad, 
it's the thing to make my soul glad.

I must to my own self be true, I can't keep waiting for
you.  I love you, yes, always I do, but to myself  I must
be true.

I've asked you time and again to treat me like a friend.
I don't know what it is about me that makes you vile, but
it's my turn to live for a while.  

And though it hurts me to go my separate way, God says 
there is  a brighter day.

So if one day you do suppose that you and I will have the 
same goals, then do you come to my heart with glee, for 
you my love, then too will be free.

Where did you go?

As I sit and wonder, my mind in a spin.
When did you leave, will you be back again?
Your body is still here, I see you everyday.
But, the person I know is slowly fading away.
Somewhere in the distance, I call your name.
Stepping through the fog, yes, you still look the same..
Yet, the look in your eyes so foreign, your touch is so cold.
I'm desperately searching, oh where did you go??
When did you go??
It came without warning, just one day it was there.
Suddenly you seem like you don't even care.
Is there another, did I miss all the signs?
With eyes 20/20, could I be that blind?
How could I be that blind?
Somewhere in the distance, I call your name.
Stepping through the fog, yes, you still look the same..
Yet, your eyes seem so foreign, your touch is so cold.
I'm desperately searching, oh where did you go??
When did you go??
If you love something set it free, so I'm letting you go.
Coming back will be your choice, but, one thing you should know..
When the lifestyle gets boring and being alone starts getting old.
When your lying there remembering who you used to hold..
It's me you'll think of who's love no other can compare..
Remember you had me, but, I'm no longer there..
No, you made sure I was no longer there..
Do you wish I was there???

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

Falling down like rain
Everything is falling down like rain

My life, my love has fallen apart
Taken a stake drove it into my heart
Shattering it into a million pieces
Still through this my love increases
Seeping into my body so deep
Is this love I desire to keep

Falling down like rain
Everything is falling down like rain

Seeming so often to welt up in my eyes
I fall down for a few more cries
Tears stream down my flushed, red face
My mind full of thoughts that won’t erase
Thoughts of wanting, So pure, So true
Of this love I so need from you

WHISPERS OF MELODIES

The music sound so sweet
that you whispering to me
speaking in tongues
translate it for me
i cant go to sleep
because of the sweet melody
sooth my pain
whisper another song for me

Moon Dance

The waves slide over the shore
Leaving tiny, squiggly trails
The moon and sun battle for the sky
And the big, bright moon prevails.
The beach is shrouded in darkness
Dimmly lit by only one light
That dances through the undertow
Marching its way through the plight.
A stencil of gray laces the sky
Creating a vision of death
Slowly overcoming the shore
'Til it takes its last breath.
The ocean itself which had once held
So much life in its depths
Has become drowned in its own contents
It is meeting its own death.
A storm lashes its way
Solmnly across the sky
To make room for what will unleash
That will cause the very moon to cry.
Dancing and waltzing across the shore,
The moon sadly turns away
She can't bear to see her ocean like this
And witness it going astray.
With one, final, swift motion, 
She casts her love out to sea
The love she held deeply for her ocean
The world, and all her countries.
She makes her way back to where she belongs
And lets the sun take over the sky
I didn't, in all my years,
Think I would ever see the moon cry.
But she shed those tears so bravely
And dried them so nonchalant
She turned and made her way back to the sky 
Like it was something she could never want.
The moon had lost the battle
And, defeated, began to fade away
Then the sun began to dance, too
To celebrate a brand-new day.

Obsession

I see you in my dreams 
I feel you under my skin.
A glance from you
sends my heart to racing....
my face gets warm
I lose my balance
I try to calm myself
but it seems impossible....
Everyday i long to see you,
I long to be near you
I want to embrace you 
in my arms and hold you 
tightly close to me.....
My heart can't resist 
there's just something about you
I can't pull my self away from you
Even my thoughts stay wrapped up in you.....
My mind has become a total mess of webs and dust
Intangling me in thoughts of you
Everyday with you feels like a dream come true...
My thought drift away to a place where you'll be awaiting me....

oh hold me close never let me go,
embrace my heart and hold it near yours
say you'll never lose our love....
say you'll be mine forever 
my love never ending standing beside me forever...

To Ernestine, My Lovely Wife

Of all God's many blessings,
The greatest would be my wife.
She looked beyond my many faults,
When agreeing to share my life.

She's always been there at my side,
Throughout our married life.
God knew what He was doing,
When choosing her for my wife.

I've never liked to go or do,
A rut's my comfort zone.
She's sacrificed so much for me,
In her, there's not one mean bone.

I've tried to do my best for her,
She's never asked for much.
In her the things I most admire,
Her smile, quiet way, her touch.

So when I thank the Lord each night,
For all that I've had in life.
The gift found at the very top,
Is a loving Christian wife.

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..

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.

Love Notes

Love notes 
Wordings from the heart
That I’m trying to use 
To cover this scented stationery
With my ball point scribbler, I’m proud 
To match the sensual scent 
Of your lovely and fiery lips
With crimson thoughts, but as I finally come 
To end my writings, after so many pages 
Hooked thrown into a silent bin 
I begin to wonder if it’s better to recite
My love notes to you in person
For this way you would feel 
Much, much better…
The bubbling rhythm 
Of my heart

Will I ever get to see you again

There was a time when I didn't have much to care about
even with people all around me
and now it seems like I have to much to care about
but where is everyone today
my life was suddenly turned upside down
spinning out of control
then one day from out of the blue I thought of the time
I spent with you
even though our time together was short lived
it had so much to give
and the memories came pouring in my mind and out of my eyes
all of a sudden I realized
you were more to me than just another guy or friend
I can't help but wonder
will I ever get to see you again?

Most of our time was spent talking on the phone
but there were also the moments
we spent alone
I remember holding each other close whenever we were near
never wanting to let go
cause we knew we couldn't hold each other come tomorrow
we didn't get to see each other very much
and damn it now I wish to God we had stayed in touch
something here has got to give
I'm running out of things to believe in
that's why I pray everyday for an answer to my question
will I ever get to see you again?

I think of the time where we watched the game with your
friends and family
and then with no kind of planning
we were alone together
and we spent our first and only night
holding one another tight untill the morning
I remember how when we looked deep into each others eyes
for me life stopped for a moment at that time
and it was you that had my hyponotized
oh so many butterfiles
it has taken this long for me to realize
that never has anyone taken me there again
my biggest mistake I've ever made was not telling you how I truely felt
I couldn't put it in the right words
because I really wasn't sure of my emotions
thought it was just what was happening in the moment
and give time I would be alright
never did I believe now I would be in such torment
the pain of not knowing
will I ever get to see you again?

Need to find you to let you know
that you are the only one I could never let go and I really do love you so
oh somebody please help me find the answers
because I do need to know
will I ever get to see you, hold you, tell you I am in love with you again?
If so when?

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.

Come Softly To Me

Come, come softly to me…

Come, let me glimpse at your silhouette in the dark,
an ephemeral apparition in white satin and lace.

Come, let me hear your soft and nervous laughter 
bouncing and echoing off the bedroom wall.           

Come, let me drown in the forest of your dark hair,  
inhaling the sweet fragrance of woods and pines. 

Come, let me plunge into the pools of your eyes,    
fathoming the depth of the promise they hold.    

Come, let me feel your tender lips opening shyly,
whispering secrets that only lovers understand.             

Come, let me touch the softness of your skin,     
tracing the contour of every peak and valley.     

Come, let me calm the quake rocking your body 
in quiet expectation of what soon will be. 

Come, let me whisper words of love in your ear
like phantom in the night, beguiling, tempting.

Come, let me sate my thirst from thy dainty breasts,        
listening to the tale that each heartbeat dares to tell.  

Come, let me unlock the mystery that spells woman
embedding it in the deep recesses of my memory.
                                  
Come, come softly to me, my innocent virgin bride.

                                               and know to you i have never lied;
                                               never ever will i be a troll,

Our Fruit Flirtation

You hung two big cherries on my ear.
I was delighted with the red earring.
The unexpected jewel was shining and clear
As your eyes – insatiable and dreaming…

Then you put raspberries on my palm,
And held a molecule close to my lips.
That orchard was wonderfully calm,
You could recognize my simple needs…

And I picked a sweet, ripe gooseberry,
And gave you it with extraordinary grace.
I was grateful to you for the red jewelry,
I touched the gooseberry flesh on your face…

You mean the world to me

I wake up every morning thinking of you
I lay down at night and what do I do 
I pray that we'll be together
For always and forever 
I want to hold you till you we die
I will find you up in the sky 
And we'll hold each others hand 
Dancing to God's glourious band 

Look me in the eyes, baby please
Tell me that our love will never seize
Can't stop thinking about you 
Every moment just thinking about you
Will you always look at me this way 
Or will it fade away some day
I pray that it never does
Couldn't change back to the way I was

I wake up every morning thinking of you
I lay down at night and what do I do 
I pray that we'll be together
For always and forever 
I want to hold you till you we die
I will find you up in the sky 
And we'll hold each others hand 
Dancing to God's glourious band 

Tell me you love me with all you heart
That your loves strong, won't fall apart
It's happened before
Don't want to open that door
Hold me right here next to you
What else is there to do
I'll tell you how I feel 
This love feels verry real

Rise up from the Dirt

You have to fly 
to keep your wings,
You have to look
to see better things;

You must have faith
otherwise, you'll fall,
and before you can run
you first, must crawl;

How can you have hope
if you don't believe?
If you don't even try
You'll never achieve;

If you wan't to know
you'll just have to learn,
You can not touch fire
and expect no burn;

You must wake up
before you can dream,
and it can look like gold
but that thing won't gleam;

You have to be honest
if you want the truth,
to see into the future
Take a look at the Youth;

If you want it to be Love
it must touch the Heart,
Love never has to end 
if you know where to start;

Don't ever feel alone
We all get hurt,
Every beautiful flower
Must Rise up from the Dirt.

About this Boy

And I ask you what you want
And you ask me do I care
And I just want to ask
will there be love there?

I've been dying to love
I've been in love with dying
I've seen the world in ways you'll never know
And it takes all I've got to keep from crying

When the world is ripped out from under your feet
And its weight placed on your shoulders..
I promise I will be there
When its eating away at you
And you wind yourself up just to make it through..
I promise I will be there

And I ask you if you care
And you say we need a mend
And I just wanted to tell you
That I'll love you till the end

unexpected love

i never thought this could be.
wanting someone i thought wasn't meant for me.
hmmm... beautiful as can be.
never to kow that they were my fantasy.
i'd voice my feelings but dare not to.
for fear  of what may be my outcome due.
nope. . . i'll just keep it to myself
in hiding hope that it'll go away or i'll need help.
why would something like this have to happen to me?
why couldn't this just be a story told to me?
i'd rather it be so, cause my heart hurts.
i see him day to day acknowledged by the term "grandmother".
when  all the while i really wish he were my lover.
but i guess this is how it has to be...
                          cause unexpected love has fallen on me.

A SUBSTITUTE FOR THIS LONELINESS

Another charming woman is
sharing with me what I used
to share with you without guilt,
even without a sad feeling or thought:
to find a substitute for this loneliness...
for  that deep void you left inside!

The cell phone always rang
at the end of the evening;
and I was so thrilled
to hear you at the other end:
to listen to the sweet words that were
able to turn an uncaring man
into a gentler and kinder one...
and I learned how to care!

Oh,how I long to hear that voice again,
and like a dream that needed litttle dreaming:
you came knocking on my door at dawn,
and I let you in without hesitating...
so earger to touch you like nobody could;
so impatient to invent a magical world!   

Another night is coming to haunt me mercilessly
with the beautiful memories and secrets 
of two close hearts loving endessly;
what other choice do I have...if not look away,
and tell myself that you don't exist in my thoughts...
to find a substitute for this loneliness?

Love Is

Love is my passion
Love is my creed
Love is my touchstone
Love is all that I need.

Without love there is no reason
for each new day, new year, new season.

From the day we are born
Till the day we depart
Love is there buried deep in our hearts.

So starting today, lets make a pact
That love will decide the way that we act.
Give love to your neighbors, brother and kin
And then maybe more love will start to come in.

MY GIRL FRIEND

I  think  about   her
I  think  about   her

When  am   sick
I  call  her  name
I can't  forget  her
the   sweet  of  my  heart

I  really   love  her
And  her  name  is  my  dream
day   and   night
I  will  praise  her
All  days  of  my life

At  the time of my   death
It will be  a war
to  separate  our love in sorrow and toil.
She's my sweet,
the light of my life forever and ever.

I  really  love  her with all  my  heart
the  pole of my rib
from  Adam  and  Eve
the woman  was  great

She's my home
She's my  love
my soul

When am sick i call her sweet
to get back in life
Oh! she's my salt
She's my lamp,
my stars
I don't know  where to hide her
with her beautiful face
my heart


I think  about her
I  think about her
my love, my friend.

Let Me Go

You make me feel
So beautiful
When you're mine
You make me feel
So wonderful
When you're not lying
But I cant 
Stand to see your arm around her waist
And I cant
Stand to hear you calling out her name

Im begining to see
That you only want them
When you no longer have to chase me
And you only want me
When I belong to someone else

You tend to call me
When I dont want
Anything to do with you
You tend to call me
Late at night
When Im with someone new
But I cant
Stand the nights when you dont call me at all
And I cant 
Stand to hear that you were at her house all night long

Im begining to see
That you only want them 
When you no longer have to chase me
And you only want me 
When I belong to someone else

Why do you
Do this to me
Why cant you see
What this is doing to me
After I find out your lie
I lie in my bed and cry
And I wake up in the new morning
Only to geel the new break in my heart forming

Im begining to see 
That you only want them
When you no longer have to chase me
And you only want me
When I belong to someone else

Let me go
or hold on to me
Let me go
or just dont leave
Let me go

Thinking of you...

I've been sitting here with the thought of you
weighing heavy on my mind.
Searching for a solution that I can never
seem to find
An answer to these feelings that I have for
you and wondering to myself what am I 
going to do?
You are constantly on my mind every hour
of every day and yet if I seen you face to
face I don't know what I would say
 Although I go over and over in my mind just what 
I want to say to you. I don't know if I would have
the courage to see it through.
I guess if all is meant to be then it will just
come naturally.
I keep that bit of hope that's all that I know
to do and with that I grasp on to the very
thought of being with you.

Behind The Smile

You see her smile, and she seems alright.
But what you don’t see is that she is crying inside
You think if she is sad, why doesn't she shed a tear? 
Maybe showing emotion is her biggest fear. 
She doesn't want people to see something is wrong. 
All she wants is for people to think her heart is strong. 
She doesn't want to know what others might say, 
If she just broke out in tears one day. 
Just remember what goes up must come down 
And a smile can easily cover up a frown. 
This girl, if you cannot see, 
Is no one other than me.

The Godfather

I’m a man, just simply a man;
once a child with no other distinction.
I am neither your first son, nor last.

I cannot alter what God has planned, 
nor stop sun to shine, 
nor stop the rain he’s cast.

So, I seek a solution to the paradigm
of angst and joy of life,
of the person I should be now.

Though life’s full of mystery and of misery,
you were there to give me hope and dignity,
no wonder I always love to be with you.

But, when God decided...
we couldn’t say, “No!” 
You left me with his everlasting glory.

As time passes, I realize the greatness of 
love and joy on the day of my friend’s son,
I became like you, a loving godfather.

May I Dream Of You Tonight?

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

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

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

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

You Live My Testimony

My love is strong.
I use you though the many things you've done wrong.
The road was long but the past is gone and now you have a new song.
A new page to flip;
A new chapter to write;
A new part on this big script.
Satan may try to tempt you as tainted but don't you listen to his games because 
your life
will be my testimony too.
And now the new words you'll speak and the lives you'll renew will bring glory to 
me and
my son who was slew.
Though I warn you, in this new page your company will be few
People may not get you but they'll run later coming to you with their issues
They'll see how you've overcame and then you'll tell 'em bout me and your life will 
then
be shown my testimony. . . 
                                                     You live my testimony.

You Broke Me

You broke it
You broke it
You tore it right apart
You made me
Finally believe
That we'd never be apart

I cant stand
How you can just
Look at me th way you do
I cant stand
How you can just
Make me feel the way you do
Then turn away
Let me feel that I am to blame

You broke it
You broke it
You tore it right apart
You made me
Finally believe
That we'd never be apart

I cant stand 
How weak I feel
When you waltz right in
I cant stand 
How weak I feel
When you play me like a field
Then you say "Goodbye"
No matter how many times, I still wonder "Why"

You broke it 
You broke it
You tore it right apart
You made me 
Finally believe
That we'd never be apart

One of these days 
I'll wisen up
I wont forget about you
You wont forget about me
But I'll never forget
The pain that Loving you
Is causing me

You broke me
You broke me
You tore me right apart
You made me 
Finally believe 
That you'd never break my heart

Always Within My Heart

Shut your eyes, listen

Can you hear the waves rolling in

The sun feels so good 

As it dances on my skin

The air, freshly scented

Like a soft summer rain

Takes me to places

Far away from the pain

Warm breezes caress me

Gentle, like your touch

Reminding me of what

I’ve been missing so much

While I watch the sun rise 

Then slowly it sets

I think of the things 

I’ll never forget

The birth of my children

The smile of a friend

The way my soul feels

When touched by your hand

The taste of your lips

Sweet as honey wine

The melodies I see

When we combine

The distance doesn’t matter

When we are apart

You will remain forever

Always within my heart

True Love

As my mind began to corrode.
I never knew what price I owed.
You went to the underworld,
and I followed you to Hell.
My soul was strong enough to break away,
and you tried to fight off the devil in vain.

I found those chains melting away
And I heard you calling my name.
I wanted to leave you behind.
I wanted to watch you suffer.
I found my conscience and I hatefully helped you.
You smiled at me even through all of your pain,
And my thoughts of anger floated away.

I realized that I still loved you.

The Gift

I never had the chance to look into your eyes,
I guess you felt so much pain that you tried to hide,
All this love I was to give, it hurt my heart you lived,
For just a little while, The Gift, my only child,
Wish I could take back every thought that was against you,
Felt like it was my fault, I was stressin, I had issues,
The tissue, keep it comin, My tears they steady runnin,
This aint no normal something, through loss Im steady hummin.
mmmh, mmmh, mmmh,
mmmh, mmmh, mmmh,
I only see you when I look at photographs,
You came with much pain so we never had some laughs,
I was trying to get ready for you, so I could be a better woman,
But instead my heart grew heavy because, my gift, took his lil' lovin,
I know you are not alone, so many have gone on,
But mommas strong, and daddies gone...
To you this is my song....

I Taught Her To Cry

{verse-1}
That pretty lady you were holding tonight
She used to be mine till I taught her to cry
You know those kisses she gave you last night
She learned that from me, I’m the other guy
And do you like the way she holds you so tight
Well that was me, I wasn’t very bright

{verse-2}
I had her giving all the love she could give
She laughed, she loved, till I taught her to cry
Guess I was wrong, the way I made her live
Then she learned something else, from some other guy
I’d just like to know, who taught her to lie
‘Cause when she did, I felt I could die

{chorus}
It was all me, who taught her those things
Taught her to love, Taught her to cry
Taught her to laugh, when she said good-bye
Just can't believe I taught her to cry

{verse-3}
Then she taught me to hurt, then taught me to cry
She taught me how, to just say good-bye
I lost it all, that night of the fight
Just can't believe, I taught her to cry
It was all me who taught her so well
Just can't believe, I taught her to cry

Jungle Love

Jungle Love
The time of year when Jasmins bloom, 
most sweetly in the summer weather, 
Helpless in the fragrant Jungle gloom, 
On sultry night we spent together, 
We, Love and Night, together blent, 
A Trinity of tranced content.
Your lips belong to me, wholly mine.
To Kiss... To Drink... To Caress
Hearing from afar in faint distress
Sweet Wine One of Great Love Potions
To Set In Motion
The Fulness of Your Delight
With Our Passion
There Is No Fright
Taken In Abandon 
Quivering note of Human Tremor
To rise and fall again, 
In Shouts of exctasy throughout the night, 
Tasting the perfumed flower
In the moonlit hours


Details | Lyric | |

Last Night

Our bodies unified with what our hearts deemed to be right

A sensual and explosive passion that penetrated through the night

The intensity of our passion sent shockwaves from my breast to my hips

The sexiest sensation ripped through my body when I kissed you on the lips

Feeling you inside of me and listening to the words that you spoke

Made me drip wet with anticipation with your every mastered stroke

The taste of creamy nectar pulsated in our mouths

Addicted to your orgasm, we may never leave this house

Our bodies and soul mesmerized by Euphoria and the intensity it left behind

Last Night I met new depths because you made love to my body and my mind

                                                                        -Essence Emani

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

She;s The One

She's the one I care to be with
The one I trust to hold my heart
I love her touch so soft and tender
Even when she's gone where not apartNow pain is just one fact of life
uncertainty a given
When I first held and felt her warm embrace
I was no longer just alive but living
From the day we leave our mothers womb
We search for a new place to feel secure
Yet until you came into my life 
Of such a place I was never sure
But now I no of such a place
It's no longer secret I need no clue
It can be my brightest day or darkest night
As long as im with you

Valentines

There are many things in life which I know to be true
The love I feel inside me is one but of a few

Having searched so long and hard for love in you I've found the prize
It's a feeling gifted to souls who care and it's essence never dies

The power it ignites in me is impossible to describe
I just know that when I think of you my heart explodes with pride

Quiet times ill sit and think of you and the things you give to me
As if I've been blind my life and now your love is a vision to me

These words of love come easy to me because of you
For two truly right the deepest words of love the hearts needed equals two

So thank you on this special day which has been set aside for passion
For my love for you is the truest kind and not of whim or fashion


Details | Lyric | |

Lonesome Rain

You never seemed to care
How many tears I sat and cried
I saw no remorse
For those lies you sat and lied
You didn't stop to think
On those words that brought me pain
Now you're the one left standing
In that cold, lonesome rain

Lonesome rain
The one that keeps pouring down
Lonesome rain
The one that turns life upside down
Lonesome rain
That long, cold, lonesome rain

Where are those friends
That were more important than me?
And what happened to that ladies' man
You said you'de always be?
Now it's just grey skies
You and the pain
Your world has become
That cold lonesome rain

I now dance in sunshine
As your world comes pouring down
It's called poetic justice
For all those nights you hit the town
Now, it's just those grey skies
You and the pain
As your days are carried out
In that cold, lonesome rain

Retrospective

I could have held you and kept you from falling
I could have been by your side
We had it all, but it wasn't enough
I could have swallowed my pride

There was so much I could have done
There were so many signs
I never took the time to know you 
I never read tween the lines

Now that it's over and we've gone our ways
Now that the knot is untied
I still get up in the middle of my dreams
Don't know how often I've cried

There was a time I put you before
All of my plans and my schemes
Then I gave it up selling my soul
Along with all of my dreams

Now I am here, living alone
I never dreamed we would part
You gave me some of my most cherished memories
I gave you a piece of my heart.

bonds of the flesh

where's the love , a time that was
long time away , a time that must
gotta go back to where it began
only to feel it all over again
glimpes , moments , flash of lightning
without true love , a little frightning
highways , expressways
looking for a new day
back into the fold , the only way
bit's and pieces , seams and creases
seem to fall away , only teasin'
satisfaction , rental , temporary pleasin'
short lived our life , only leasin'
the ground we walk , holy and sacred
 
just some of the things we seem to forget
our loves been bound within' the net
like fish we are , looking for release
if trapped too long , afficted disease
time to reflect , time to reject
excess luggage for upcoming project
self realization , time to believe
only the truth can set you free
time without rust , time to trust
where's the love , a time that was...

Simply Close Your Eyes

Everytime I close my eyes we kiss,
Even though there is an ocean between us 
my mind always seems to find you. 
Sometimes I catch you brushing your teeth or
washing your hair. The times I remember most are 
when I find you starring into the night thinking of me
remembering times we spent together. 
I close my eyes often and share a brief moment in time with you.
For those are the times that drive me. You are the gas and I am the car
Fully loaded with love trying to make it down this bumpy road called life.
I only pray you dont leave me stranded......
But how could you when you need me as I need you~
I close my eyes now and see you sitting there at your desk reading this
thinking of me with an angelic smile across your face. 
You know I wrote this for and about you.........
and for that reason I will always live inside you.
Simply close your eyes.....

We – Not We

My joy and your joy don’t go together,
My thoughts and your thoughts touch slightly.
My hand, your hand – they will meet never,
My dreams want to kiss your dreams lightly.

Your words bloom in my heart like flowers,
I’d like to pick them and not to suffer any longer.
There is my heart and yours in the scattered showers,
My love and my hope - I have to smother them.

My island is so lonely; my flag waves on the pole.
You should have it at heart and come to comfort.
But I had a look around and didn’t see a soul.
Your ship can’t still find the inaccessible port. 

My joy and your joy don’t go together,
My thoughts and your thoughts touch slightly.
My hand, your hand – they will meet never,
My dreams want to kiss your dreams lightly.


Details | Lyric | |

You Don't Notice

You don't notice how I feel
You just think everything is real
But my pain can't heal 
When you are just standing still

I am always hurt but you don't know
It is not like i want to show
If i told you, you will blow
So my emotions, you will never know

You don't notice how I cried
How i am so broken deep inside
You notice how I lied
But you don't notice why

You blamed me for everthing I do
You suffocated me for all I'd done for you
If this is what you are going to put me through
Then, I will just separate from you

There is a reason why I don't talk everyday
You are the one who made me this way
So today, i shall pray
That hoping your love won't be delay

You are not concerned of me
You just think you are always right
But when I know you are wrong
All you did was start a fight

You don't notice how i feel
You don't notice how I cried
You are immatured of what is real
And you just left me broken inside.

I May Stumble

As I walk, through the valley, again today...
I want to thank, my Dear Savior, for the Hope
He sends my way.

I am a part of His plan, that He has promised,
to us all, Yes, I may stumble, but He won't let me fall.

My path has seen, many a heartache, and so much pain,
but the one thing I must remember, this was the reason,
my Savior came.

As I walk, through the valley, again today,
I want to thank my Dear Savior, for the Hope He
sends my way.

His Fatherr sent Him, to a place, so full of sin,
where they nailed Him to a Cross,
so our Salvation, could begin.

I am a part of His plan, that He has promised to us all,
Yes, I may stumble, but He won't let me fall.

As I walk through the valley, again today,
I want to thank my Dear Savior, for the Hope,
He sends my way.

Yes, I want to thank, my Dear Savior,
for the Hope He sends my way.

Sometimes I may stumble, but He won't let me fall.

It's Alright, I'm Okay

It's the hardest thing
I ever had to do
You asked me how I felt
And I lied to you

I can't tell you the truth
So I deal with the pain
But when I am alone
My tears fall like rain

So I said it's alright
And I said I'm okay
But I know it'll just get worse
Everyday

Cause I know you'll move on
Try to find someone new
Boy, just know that
I still love you

I know I make it hard
And I know I make hurt
But baby, you and I
Could make this work

I lie about how I feel
Everyday to you
Maybe this time
I should try the truth

So I’m gonna tell the truth
I ain’t gonna lie to you no more
I know you already left
But please walk back in the door

Cause I’m not alright
And I’m not okay
Now that you know the truth
Will it get better everyday?

Please don’t move on
Let me be your someone new
Boy I’m still
In love with you

I know I make it hard
And I know I make it hurt
But knowing you, you’ll find some way
To make us work

There you go
Giving me that look again
The way you make me feel
I’ll give it a ten

Now you’re back in my life
And you’re here to stop my tears
Baby when you hold me
You take away my fears

Please just hold me
And make me feel right
Now I hear you whispering
I love you, baby, good-night

It’s finally alright
And I’m finally okay
Boy, with you here
You take the pain away

And you didn’t move on
And I’m your someone new
And you know that I
Will always love you

I know I made it hard
And I know I made it hurt
But baby you and I
Made us work

Broken Wings

She watched him go early this morning, 
her dreams shattered and spirit low -  
on broken wings, a wounded sparrow.             

Her tears fell like sudden summer rain,       
gone is the love she thought was so true -     
on broken wings, a wounded sparrow.    

Promises made that he could not keep      
left her with a wound that went so deep;   
the door she opened with so much care   
had crumbled down way beyond repair.     

There she stays in the corner crying       
just by herself and her own shadow -                                                
on broken wings, a wounded sparrow.

Antique

Your love shown like an antique bloodstain on the dress of our decay.
You pushed your hand through 
the over grown garden to crush the final living rose.
Blood seeped from your pores.
We held hands on our last night on earth.
We dance on the graves of loved ones lost.
And we kissed under the trees 
and under the sky.
We sold our souls to the vampire in our dreams.
We sung about broken hearts and lost souls as we cried.
We were never meant to be.
You can take these tears.
Watch the blood drenched TV screen flicker with anticipation.
Dancing in our sorrow.
And singing in unrivaled beauty.

Alone with you

After all this time we can finally be together.
This night I will remember forever.
You are as beautiful as when I first saw your face.
No one can make me feel like when I am in your embrace.
Your eyes still hypnotize me and bring out my strongest desire.
My heart still burns for you with an unquenchable fire.
I still shiver when you touch my skin.
You bring out the passion and love from within.
We are in our own world away from anyone.
You saved yourself just for me.
There is no place in the world I would rather be.
Than all alone just you and me
For you I feel a mixture of everything.
Love lust passion sensuality and all the confusion it brings.
My love is stronger only for you.
I am safe and secure Alone with you.

* One Love*


Since the first time our eyes met I knew that my life was destined to be spent with 
you

Your love is so special it brings tears to my eyes

Your touch is so enduring it mends my lonely cries

When we are together its like no one else is there

I know I am safe and protected just by the way that you care

When I dont see you my whole world is turned up side down

When I am not with you its like I am about to drown

Im ready to be your wife, our vows hand in hand

Your my one love, my hommie, lover & very best friend

You make me so happy, with you I feel complete

Our love is unconditional more intense then smoldering heat

I am so glad that I found you; I need you in my life

So wait patiently my love, because one day I will be your wife!

Make It Go Away

Can I kill the pain today?
Just make it all go away?
Can I breathe again today?
Just make it all seem so far away?
Yesterday is over
The past is dead
Why is it so hard to get that through my head?
All the sleepless nights spent thinking about you,
and how you made me smile
All the sleepless nights spent wishing
that you could have stayed for just awhile

Untitled

It’s no gain to waste all this pain.

A disgrace to not always hide this face.

My mind is lame, and it’s a shame,

to feel so numb and not be dumb.

I hate to say life’s not always been this way.

It’s an outrage that I ever lived outside this cage.

Apathy works best for me.

Cold-hearted to myself, the cheaply departed.

Sadness makes me the happiest. 

My loneliness makes me feel so blessed.

This bitter resentment fills me with contentment.

My biggest folly ever was delaying this melancholy.

However this ailment is reaching my fulfillment,

Leaving me empty, sad, happy and whole.

My bitterness is such bliss.

A feeling that I would surely miss.

I often lament evading this torment.

This suffering is the greatest thing ever.

I frequently regret never being upset.

Now I daily look forward to the sorrow that’s promised by tomorrow,

and I pray it comes each and everyday.

Without its displeasure I cannot carry on,

for it is my greatest treasure.

MY GOOD-BYE IN SONG

You came away looking innocent,
nothing pointed out to suspecion
that could do a lot harm...
by hiding what was really important;
even the words you said made
such a good impression
to let you have me whenever you would,
to shut those eyes to something very wrong!

My good-bye in song
will help you carry along; inside
I may hurt...but not very long;
who will be by my side
when the need is strong?
My good-bye in song
can't be explained without words...
to feel the loss in my empty hands! 

Someone's else eyes search for mine,
how could I betray the truest and deepest feeling...
remembering the warm touches we were sharing?
Another hand is ready to hold mine,
and another smile different from yours...
can change,overnight, these love-blues!

My good-bye in song
is no exscuse to forget my set-back;
only to hold on this regret...
until I hear your apology,
but who can bring back that fantasy?

Memories

Memories keep us close,
although far away.
Memories are priceless,
even as they fade.
Memories can bring comfort,
to a lonely soul,
Memories we cherish, 
never grow old.

Alone In The Night

I put down my book,
And I picked up the picture,
Of you, that I printed and framed-
Lost in your smile-
I gazed for awhile-
Then said, "You are going insane."

I know I can't have you-
You may not want me...
But we'll never know will we, dear.
Nor stroll hand in hand-
Through the Florida sand-
Alas, all my future is here.

Besides that, I'm older-
With too many miles...
That I've seen as I went down the road;
A rodeo drifter, 
A dreamer, a fool,
More oft than I've won, I got throwed.

I'll miss you, my darling...
Do you think of me?
We touched, and of that I am sure...
Perhaps it is better-
That our love stay unmarred,
Platonic,and perfect, and pure.

Reality's shattered...
More daydreams that one.
I'm glad ours will always exist.
A gossamer world-
Unsullied by fact...
We'll walk through the glow and the mist.

Farewell, little darling-
Your smile is so sweet...
Your eyes are two windows alight.
I bask in their glow,
When the lonely winds blow-
And I sit here alone in the night.

Pictures

I burned the pictures
Every one of you and me
The love notes and teddy bears
Yes, I burned everything

I destroyed all the evidence
And all you left behind
But as I sleep, I'm haunted
By the pictures in my mind

Every 'I love you'
Every time we laughed
All the whispered words
It all comes rushing back

Drowning in the memories
Left unhealed by time
And resurrected nightly
By these pictures in my mind

My pillow, the only witness
Of tears that fall like rain
And silent sobs that echo
With guilt, fear and shame

Denial keeps me going
And refuses to see the signs
Believing all is well
With these pictures in my mind

The days pass so quickly
With never a thought of you 
But day slips into dusk
And with the darkness, there is always you

With every day's new dawning
I wake hoping to find
That with the next moon's rising
I'll be rid of these pictures in my mind

I hope, I wish, I pray
Somewhere, someplace, sometime
To finally find the flame
That burns these pictures in my mind

Heartsong

Heartsong is how I call the beating of my heart.
Sound of feeling when I met you from the start.
Having you into my life highlighted a blissful art.
In my existence you have become the greatest part.

Heartsong is the jingle that I hear whenever you sing.
Your voice that I recognize in my heart is the one king.
In my life, you my dear Honey only mean everything.
The love and happiness our togetherness always bring.

Heartsong is the hum of silence without saying a word.
Now we have to face challenges that recently occurred
What we're going through is difficult but never absurd.
Let's keep our love forever and be free to fly like a bird.

Beloved I hold

Ever since I first held you, 
I haven't let you go, 

Your love delicate, potent 
this smile I wear emulates 
your love mirrored within 

you move me, 
my spirit influenced 
cessation worthy 
held securely 

Each day our love begins our journey 
together we strive new heights 
momentum enshrine 
with our love blessed 
life delights 

Life delights time

Longing For Your Touch

My body aches for your loving embrace Your tender lips are sweet to taste When I look into your beautiful face Your eyes like two opals shining bright Gaze back at me and they seem to say I'm yours my darling take me tonight. Just lie there and be still my lady love As I gaze on your beauty from above My body aches to to be one with yours To feel the love of the one I so adore Let me take you now by the open fire Your all I want my hearts desire. I dreamed of this night and now it's here I feel the electricity all around us so near My every fibre tingles as you ease me down I'm yours tonight to take as your own I need you now so we should no longer delay Now that I'm here my love I'll not go away.

Put a bullet in my brain

Put a bullet in my brain
as the rain sweeps her out of my arms
and places her into another's.
Put a bullet in my brain
for I don't want to see love slip away
please end my suffering,
for I don't want to dare see her in the arms of another man.

I fear the tear that slips away from my soul
and touches the ground with a splash
as she is washed away by the lashed memories of the rain,
please, someone put a bullet in my brain.

I can't bear to see her with another man
laying in his arms
as he charishes her beauty
just like I did to her.
As she smiles and laughs at his jokes
my heart would not bare the sorrow and pain
that would tare my heart apart into pieces of tainted love.
Please tell the rain to stop,
as the pain grows when rain comes down,
please someone end my suffering,
put a bullet in my brain
and stop the rain
that washes away every memory of her.

Stop saying you miss me
and just kiss me
for I can't take the pain
of the rain that takes you away.
Kiss me and stop saying you miss me
for those are useless words to me.
Love is where it's at, so show me.
Don't go with him, he'll treat you wrong.
Love and laugh with me till the break of dawn
as we yawn the long night away.

Kiss me and don't say you miss me.
For if you go away from me,
I couldn't bare to take a tear and waste it away.
Tears, sweet tears crying for you,
doesn't that mean anything to you?
I ask you, stop the rain,
stop the pain and put that bullet in my brain.

Let the red blood flow from my temples.
Let the plow dig my grave,
for I can't bare to see you with another
in his arms, him kissing you, where I kissed you.
I can't take it, I have to make it,
make that pain go away.
Prayer didn't help, God turned a blind eye
when I came up and said why!
Put that bullet in my dome
and when I lay in the coffin, looking at the roof of the church
you come and kiss me, and then you can really say
that you'll miss me.

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.

I Hate You Cancer

Dedicated to my Dad who lost his short battle w/ Colon Cancer on June 18,2013

I hate you Cancer
Your vile evil and cruel
You don't care who you hurt
I'll never forget that day
I'll always hate you for it

Your heartless Cancer
You took someone important from me
Someone important from others too
Took people who didn't belong to you
I hate you for it

You disgust me Cancer
You had no right to take him from me
He mattered more than my very own life
I hate you for taking my Daddy
I hate you for taking others too

I hate you with a passion Cancer
You took part of my heart with him
You took part of my soul that day too
I hate you for it
I hate you I hate you I hate you

I hate you with every fiber of my being 
Go back to Hell where you belong
I hate you, others hate you
Your not welcome or wanted here Cancer

I hate you more than his doctor's
I hate you more than God
I hope I get to witness that day
Witness the day you fall
And you will fall Cancer

You're gonna lose the battle one day Cancer
I'm gonna laugh and dance around your grave
You'll finally get what you deserve 
And you'll never be able to take another soul

A Rose with no Thorn

A Rose with No Thorn

In the Garden, the bouquet of life
There bloomed a rose whose beauty caught my eye
Incomparable is this rose’s design
Unlike the others, she is not the prickling kind

I know they say that every rose has its thorn
But here blooms the exception, of the spirit she is born
One of a kind, the rarest in form
For she is a rose with no thorn

Oh what a fragrance, so lovely and fair
A scent of sincerity sweeps through the air
A pristine beauty from the realms up above
For she is the flower primeval of love

And as I bask in her blossoms of compassion
I find I am fashioned by love that’s everlasting
And in my heart she’ll always be adorned
For she is a rose with no thorn

Though weeds, thorns and thistles have tried to choke her
The rain has wet her; the sun has even scorched her
But she’ll not wither, neither will she wilt
For she is rooted in the love that God has tilled

Amidst great turmoil, never to be foiled
Arrayed in glory that could never ever toil
One of a kind, yes the rarest in form
For she is a rose with no thorn

Don't Cry

Please don't cry over my casket 
For I am not there 
Please don't cry at my grave 
My soul has been set free 
I know it's hard not to cry 
I've been down that road one to many times 

I have no more pain 
I have no more sickness 
And I would not change a thing 
As I walk threw the gates of Heaven 
Mom Dad our brothers and sisters 
Will welcome me with open arms 
Here I am free of that pain 

Don't blame yourself 
It was my time to go home 
This is where I'm supposed to be 
Don't dwell on things which you can not change 
I will always be in your heart 

I will always be watching over you 
When that day comes for you to come home
I will be there to welcome you 
With open arms
And walk you threw the gates of Heaven 
You will be greeted by our family & friends
Who came home before you 
Until that day I will be watching over you

And the Earthquake Shook

I was walking along,
    And I was singing this song,
        That has been playing inside my head.
If you’re as old as I,	
    You know “American Pie”,
        About the singer that has long been dead.

And so it seems,
    I was lost in my dreams,
        When this beauty came up to me.
She said, “Hey Mister,
    I know your sister,
        And I heard about your history.”

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

Although I tried,
    My tongue was tied,
        The words were stuck inside my throat.
I crashed my Chevy,
    Into the levy,
        If from that song I can steal a quote.

I just stared at her,
    Everything else a blur,
        I knew my world right then had changed.
I pressed forward fast,
    Erasing all my past,
        As if our love had been arranged.

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

We will keep my history,
    In this song a mystery,
        But it brought to me this girl.
Just know my soul was saved,
    By the path she paved,
        As I welcomed her in my world.

Now when “American Pie” I hear,
    It puts in my eye a tear,
        Remembering that fateful day.
When my angel came,
    While on the third refrain,
        And my loneliness passed away.

That was all it took;
Just a single look;
Put it in the books;
In my heart, her hook …
And the earthquake shook.

Your sex and my mind


Feeling you through the 
tenderness of your fresh 
I musically hear the tone 
as you whisper my name 
and while lusting through 
the sexual needs I feel, 
my imaginations secretly 
plan the crucifixion of this 
intimate moment. 

Healed you'll be as you 
feel me and bleed in relief 
as you lay beneath the 
manhood in me. Captivated 
you'll be as before you I'll 
kneel waiting to woo you 
physically. The sexiness of 
you fulfils the lust of my 
flesh and the beauty of your 
mind leaves my kindly waiting 
the pleasures of you inside.

A Love Poem For You

love  and let 
love find you


Details | Lyric | |

More Than Words...

Once again as my pen fails the page
In a humble but sincere effort
To honor my loving sage

As I ponder and attempt to deduce
In a low, soft chuckle, “more than words”
My rhetorical excuse

By function; words exact, color and define
And with Webster’s sword levied I chase
Definition of you into the sublime

Concept, newly born of insight and ash
Presents no attempt at justice
So its fate is sealed to trash

And alas, as a thousand times tense
I seek to corral feelings
By pen within paper fence

For moment’s sake, suppose these words I cannot cage
I humbly offer in place of love song
The feelings that surround this page

This Aint Real

Your face, 
Made a fake smile, (you said)
I love you,
I need you,
I want you just for a while,
You told me,
That I made you smile,
All the things you said to me,
Are just words now,
How can we love,
When you love me for yourself,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus: 2x
What are we doin,
If this love ain't real,
What is this feeling,
That I feel,

I'm broken in emotion,
I'm broken in love, (you said)
I need you,
I want you
You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, (so tell me)
How can we love, 
When there's always someone else,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus 2x
Bridge:
How can we love,
When there's always someone else,
How can we make up,
When you only love me for yourself,

verse #3:
You got me imprisoned, 
Inside your heart,
When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,
chorus 2x

Music

Music calms the angry heart, its glorious rhythm penetrates the dark, the way I feel when the sound waves seep through my hair, consumes my soul with a suttle stare, my feet so happy, my body enriched with vibrations, my soul so at ease, I'm here for the taking.
 

I play from my experience, I put on a show, my hidden words entangled with the things that I know, smiles surround me, they glance by my feet, their inner beings amazed by my beat.
 

I beat my drums, I play my strings, they show me their affection, this is where I get my wings, they say I can fly, it seems I can soar, my music so perfect, they keep asking for more.
 

I do what I love, and they love what I do, music is my life, I am so happy that I can share it with you.

Everything You Can't Change

They say good comes to those who wait
But what if the wait is so hard it tears you apart, makes your heart stop
What if there's no light in the tunnel, no one to turn to
It's crazy how the heart can affect your whole life
Can't breathe, can't see, you're so blind
Love is patient, love is kind
It's all a lie
It eats away like a cancer at the thoughts in your mind
Distance makes the heart grow fond but time makes memories fade
They slip away, every day it's a race to get back to the place where you felt safe
Where your soul was enslaved by the one that can take away all the pain
Now you feel like you'll go insane without them right there in your face
You'd give it all to go back to that night where everything was alright
She's there by your side
Smooth skin on your lips, softest kiss
Hands on her hips, pure bliss
Now you sit alone with clenched fists as blood drips from your wrists
You're filled with shame
You must carry all the blame for everything you can't change
That's right, suppress the pain
Just shove it all down
No emotion, don't make a sound
The urge is still real, the scars will never heal
You can feel people's eyes burn holes into your skin
The battle within, you can't win
It's a disease that consumes your whole being
Warped thoughts that you've been having won't go away like magic
Defeat this tragic war
Battle on, you are a soldier
Put on that coat of armor and carry the blame no more

The Lament For an Angel

All in one faded-black day (but let None forget) In my arms, her body lay (my life was the price to pay) A tragedy, through the lack of humanly shame (do they know pain) My darkly colleen has to suffer no more (Robert nor do you) Let me die (please hear my haunted cries) If I can not see Sophie tonight (live on with my grey) I'm just a mess of despairing words And broken nerves Another mourning, afflicted sight (through decay, love can remain) Solace, sympathy are just more lies She is all I need Until you decide she is just another sadist's toy My Angel, why did you have to fly so far away My Angel, just let one feather stay My Angel has flown away My Angel, why did you have to fly so far away My Angel, just let one feather stay My Angel has flown away (My body is amortal, die I may, Together, our hearts will forever stay)

Under the Weeping Willow Tree

Under The Weeping Willow

I saw you when we were kids
Playing with blocks on the kindergarten floor
We grew up
You became a beauty
I became a geek
I never had the never had the nerve to talk to you
Then we met

Under the weeping willow down on the shores of the river
We met, we held hands and we kissed
That old weeping willow shed its tears
The willow's tears that flowed in happiness
We had found the love we both wanted

I proposed and we wed 
Promising to share our lives from then on
Never to part
I saw the love in your eyes
The geek married the beauty
And the rest of our lives began

Under the weeping will down on the shores of the river
We shared our vows
The rings shined on our finger
That old weeping willow shed its tears
The willow's tears that flowed in happiness
We had found the forever we both wanted

Our baby was born on a summer day
The sun was warm and the breeze gentle
She was named willow
And she smiled at the sun shining through the leaves
She loves her mother and father
All the love in the world could be seen in her eyes

Under the weeping will down on the shores of the river
We were the perfect family
A beautiful little girl with a future of love ahead
She brought pure happiness into our lives
That old weeping willow shed its tears
The willow's tears that flowed in happiness
We had found the family we both wanted

That winter the love of my life died
She went to sleep
She answered God's call
All her prayers would be answered
I am sure that she was welcomed to Heaven
And given a beautiful pair of wings

Under the weeping will down on the shores of the river
I laid her body to rest
A beautiful love that will last forever
She is smiling because she was loved
That old weeping willow shed its tears
The willow's tears that flowed in sadness
The love of my life was gone

THIS MUST BE LOVE

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

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

One Love, A Tribute to Bob Marley

“One love…one heart, let’s get together and feel alright…
As it was in the beginning (one love), so shall it be in the end (one heart); give thanks and 
praise to the Lord, and I will feel alright…” Bob Marley, Prophet.


I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.

We are, but before we can be, we must realize,
that the only way TO be, is I and I – the trinity;
the I and I makes the one that was, is, and ever
shall be – 
the one yearning to be set free 
unto its brothers and sisters to its beginnings 
and endings, 
and on and on and on, and led into infinity
by its singers.

It is the one that does not seek, 
and can only be found; rediscovered 
like the greatest treasure the earth ever buried, 
and the heavens ever knew –
                                the reason for all things…

So dance as one voice; sing as two feet 
pounding
the earth with your glory; 
free the one rhythm that has been vibrating between toes 
for all of time –
dance beneath and above all things,
and sing the songs of freedom!

Rise up, rise up, rise up and dance!
Free the chains from your bound feet,
And feel the weight released –
A trinity of I and I;
One love, one heart, let’s get together
And feel alright…

I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.




*Inspired by Michele's Music to your Pen, contest and my brother in vision, the man himself, 
Mr. Bob Marley who as soon as I put him on, I'm smiling and filled with great light. :)

From ONE LOVE, by: Bob Marley

FLOTSAM AND JETSAM

While the shadows fall so widely
we shall embrace a moment
for a moment will fill
all the shells empty; holding nothing
but time—days n' days
without love

The wedding procession covered
you in flowers and white
floating through the candle light
dragging crisp white fingers lightly
through lilies fair
While the shadows fall so widely
and the candle light twirled through your hair 

Twist a finger, twist a lily
While the shadows fall so widely

Blush the sun rubbed rose cheeks
lift a veil, let the sun shine off your green eyes
While the shadows fall so widely

You were left a drift 
your beauty beyond our realm
of beauty

While the shadows fall so widely
Lift the veil from mine eyes tonight
as goes the cloud from under your star
I see

While the shadows fall so widely
your foot astray touched the water
and you bloomed embracing me

While the shadows fall so widely 
we shall embrace a moment
for a moment will fill
all the shells empty; holding nothing
but time—days n' days
without love

Thunder and Lighting

Love is prominent but lies are still troubling the arch in my back is still aching  thru my core/ To calm to peaceful Today not enough appreciation from you
You make me feel less important.
 How many more audition do I need to perform for you?
 Your Personality changes like the weather negative energy creates “Thunder and Lighting” 
   Your Ego is higher then the altitude in Denver 
You are the weather that changes everyday I never knew when its cold are warm 
Today I was prepared for a Sunny day / But  like the weather you change unpredictably have me puzzled just wondering Why?
 I was not prepared for your  precipitation/ you never allow me to grasp your feelings never appreciate my love  you was only  obsessed with yourself and not my heart.  When its cloudy or rainy outside my vision gets a little blur and  fuzzy when you are around.

                      for I had been chosen to scrub bathroom floors `

                    Yet a familiar sound would bring me to keep scrubbing

London

She called herself London
On that day 
She fell from the sky
Child of apple blossoms
Dancing wildly
Into your mind

The snake that hung from her neck
Bites your hand
Expels you from Eden
Tears into the cool flesh
Of your madness
Posing as reason

London
Kisses you like a sweet lover
As though she really cares
Lets you 
Taste the passionate orchard
In her body’s secret lair

London
Wrestles with all your demons
Nothing quite compares
To the pain 
The indecent pleasure
In the waters that you share

Her name was London
Call her London

She called herself London
On that night
She prayed to the moon
Apollo’s lyre
Played darkly
In a portent 
Of your own doom

The hell she hides 
In her soul
Toxic drug you’ll never escape
You crave the milk of her touch
Her strange and dangerous ways

London
Kisses you like a sweet lover
As though she really cares
Lets you 
Taste the passionate orchard
In her body’s secret lair

London
Wrestles with all your demons
Nothing quite compares
To the pain 
The indecent pleasure
In the waters that you share  

Her name was London
Call her London

My baby, London
Call her London
My moon-girl, London 
Call her London

I love her, London
Call her London
Forever, London 

I call her London……

A Symbol Of Our Love

I long to see this love we have blossom daily with each passing day 
The beauty of which we can't see but we can feel it all the same
I love it when the sun comes up and the birds sing sweetly too
This rose will be on our bench every day of the year I spend with you.

This bench of love is reserved for us for many years to come
Sitting here now I say to you that I want you for the rest of our lives
The rose is a symbol of all that is pure, our trust, our hope and love
Two hearts shall not be broken when they've been blessed by God above.

I promise you that each year will be better than the one before 
A  rose I’ll leave on this bench as each year we’re married passes by
I’m always going to be here for you my darling you’re the one I adore 
This rose represents the longing  in my heart, I want you forevermore.

To show just how much I care I will plant a rose bush here just for you
When I look at our little bench each year and think of how it all began    
I'll remember with pride, that eve I proposed and you said “I will marry you”
As I slipped on the ring, you'd tears in your eyes, as the moon came into view.

When times catches up, grey hair sets in, grandchildren running wild at our side
I hope you'll be by my side on our bench with our roses still growing with love 
But if you're not with me,It won't be hard to remember that night of my life
When I proposed  one beautiful eve, we married and were husband and wife.

If Only I (Song)

The end was growing closer
I could feel it all around
Before you said it's over
from all the times I let you down
As I lie beside your pillow
It's getting hard to sleep at night
Every single lonely tear knows
That I did not love you right

If only I,
Could turn back time
with the words of a rhyme,
I'd be someone instead of me,
I'd show you something new to see,
Girl I need you in my life,

If only I,
Could live when you were mine,
And learn to let love shine,
I'd show your heart a better me
And be someone instead of me,
To keep you in my life,
If only I....

The last thing that you told me,
Before you walked out of the door,
Baby you never hold me,
How can I make you love me more,
I wish I would have listened
To the thing you tried to say
If I would have paid attention
Maybe then you would have stayed,

If only I,
Could turn back time
with the words of a rhyme,
I'd be someone instead of me,
I'd show you something new to see,
Girl I need you in my life,

If only I,
Could live when you were mine,
And learn to let love shine,
I'd show your heart a better me
And be someone instead of me,
To keep you in my life,

If only I, could have been
what you needed,
Since I hurt you,
our love's bleeding,
Out of time
and out of sight,
If only I could
make this right...

If only I,
Could turn back time,
when you were still mine,
I'd be everything that you need,
And give your heart a better me,
I miss you in my life...
If only I...

I know I can Be a Bad Man

Yeah I know I can be a bad man
But I just want people to understand
I do what I must, I do only what one can

I think about life, I think about my everyday strifes
I know I love you girl you the mama of my children
You already like my wife
I know I have cheated from time to time 
but you the only one who I sleep with at the end of another long night

Yeah I know I can be a bad man
But I just want people to understand
I do what I must, I do only what one can

I know I like to drink yet it feels like I love that alcohol
This liqour and beer is my number one downfall
If it werent so then the crazy *****in my life now I would have never saw
I would have never ended up sitting in prison for breaking the law

Yeah I know I can be a bad man
But I just want people to understand
I do what I must, I do only what one can

It's alright now though because Im back in school
I know I struggle at times but Im reframing from being another lost fool
I know it bull-*****even though many youngsters think that *****is cool
But they don't know if they been where I been and still want to do what I do

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.

Brush Away The Tear

Do I see a tear there in your eye -- Reflecting broken dreams from days gone by? Was it caused by something I have done? Or do you feel you’re not my only one? Can I help you drive away the pain And let you know how you’ve not loved in vain? Let me change your heartache to a sigh And brush away the tear there in your eye. Do I see a frown there on your face – Reflecting pain that time cannot erase? Is your love for me now turning cold – Or have the memories grown hard to hold? Come and let me hold you close to me. Don’t let our love be just a memory. Let me stay with you for just a while And help you change that frown into a smile. Time is kinder When you’re here with me. The mem’ries blind me so You’re all my heart can see. Come and let me take you by the hand – Please listen and just try to understand – Love like ours will never ever die – So, brush away the tear there in your eye.

UNSPOKEN REGRETS



across the room, moonlight flares like a bosom inside your eyes… a gaze piercing into my forbidden secrets and inadequacies holding me captive among kerosene stars that prowl on ashes of confessions, with lint glued on trespasses marked by unspoken regrets...and wickers flick burning the long intervals of smudged hours as the weight of my breath becomes one heavy mist gathering smoke on the floor, till i holler inside my lungs as if to collapse into a pool of mashed bones… i call you privately through nipped murmurs because we are now strangers in the rain with fractured hands, drunk on interludes of unfinished tunes while the moon in your eyes blinds me, naked. ...................................

A Valentine Romance

all the stars in the sky
cannot tell you
and are not meant to 
tell my love how much it means

all the sea's can not tell you
how secret or how sacred
that it is 
that this i believe

all the light from the sun
cannot light the way
to the secret one
i give my love everyday

all the love in the world
for just one girl
on this one
particular day

all the words cannot explain
why i feel this way
it's magically fills my heart
and makes me insane

all though nobody knows
it continues to grows
everytime i hear or see 
your precious name

i only have one hope 
for Valentines Day
give me your love
and with you i'll stay

forever and a day 
i promise 
forever and a day

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.

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

Heaven and Hell

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

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

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

Awa' aff the river shore

Awa' oan the Firth of Forth, 
high oan the famous brig', 
a laboring lad toils tirelessly 
in the cauld and bitter wind.

Awa' aff the river shore, 
a braw lassie waits for him, 
scourin' and roastin' tatties 
in a bonny wee but and ben.

The carls would hae him drinkin',
The cummers would pay him 'ahind the door,
but he oany has wan thing oan his mind
and she's awa' aff the river shore.



*Translation*

Away on the Firth of Forth,
high on the famous bridge,
a laboring lad toils tirelessly
in the cold and bitter wind.

Away off the river shore,
a braw lassie waits for him,
scouring and roasting tatties
in a bonny wee but and ben.

The carls would have him drinking,
the cummers would pay him behind the door,
but he only has one thing on his mind
and she's away off the river shore.


Glossary of terms:

* the Firth of Forth is the estuary of the River Forth in Scotland
   braw means fine looking
   tatties are potatoes
   bonny means pretty or handsome
   a but and ben is a modest two room cottage consisting of a kitchen and a main room
   a carl is a laboring man
   a cummer is a woman of questionable moral character
   to pay behind the door is to engage in sexual activity as a form of 'payment' for favors, services, or goods.

Silk Scarf


Last night the moon told me to pass,
from that same knoll we used to walk,
midwinter's cold, after school's class,
- I heard the silences to talk.

The moon above, was a waxed smile,
transmitting to creation light;
the pines were present and the aisle,
recalled my bronze six buttons bright.

I think the night wanted to talk,
or maybe to attend and care,
something was missing from that walk,
but was ascribed in the hung air.

Arcane the moonlight and your stare,
asserted truths that were forgotten,
my only certainty was aware,
the pines our song recited often.

I think you passed alone from there,
before the solitude to nest,
upon my Oxford blue sky's fare,
and constellation of Northwest.

Ascend above the stars of then,
appreciate the ghosts of time,
upon the knoll I walked again,
amid the pines, the sage and thyme.

The arbor greens, recalled that scarf,
I bought from Indies, on last barque,
half-ended trip because the surf,
never revealed the moors in dark.

Blue waves on silk, buoyancy failed,
betimes it was this last of nights,
the winds of Indian reckon wailed,
sea waters entered from dead lights.

Amidst Celestial Dark

Billy my brother drifts on a plain
In my mind I still feel his hurting pain
I still see you Billy, seeing me cry
Dad it looks like Billy, he's saying goodbye


He tell me of places that no one has seen
Amidst the celestial dark amongst it's diamond screen
Where no one can sail against the luff
I still see you Billy, why has life been so tough


Billy my brother what would I see
Smiles on our faces once again when we are annealed
Still inside I cry and the reasons why
Billy your gone now, but your so nearby


Billy my brother what would I see
Smiles on our faces once again when we are annealed
Still inside I cry and the reasons why
Billy your gone now, but your so nearby


Billy my brother drifts on a plain
In my mind I still feel his hurting pain
I still see you Billy, seeing me cry
Dad it looks like Billy, he's saying goodbye
Dad he's looking down, there's tears in his eyes

COOKIE MONSTER

There's a Cookie Monster 
Somewhere in my house
Cookies are disappearing
Too quick to be a mouse
Yesterday the jar was full
Is there something wrong
Tonight the jar's half empty
Where have cookies gone
I search from room to room
With a flashlight in my hand
I'm down to one last room
Where sleeps my little man
So I quietly open his door
Like a spy I sneak inside
In bed sleeps Cookie Monster
He's not even trying to hide
Crumbs still on his cheeks
And icing still on his lips
A huge smile across his face
He's dreaming chocolate chips

A MOTHER'S LOVE

A mother's love is so strong it has to come from above, for it takes a special 
Heart to do what she can do.

A mother's love is so deep when she cries out the whole world should weep.

A mother can go through so much pain and still remain sain.

A mother can bear children come home from the hospital, cook, wash, take 
Care of her child, kiss her husband and still wear a smile.

A mother has compassion and feeling that are so strong she can even tell 
When something is wrong.

A mother is a single mother who is struggling to carry both roles, we give 
You a "shout" out because that's a heavy load.

A mother is a grandmother who is still moving strong, she continues to love, 
Nurture, and care for the young.

A mother is so many special things that god created wrapped up into one.

So " remember" to show her love all the time, and tell her what a fine job she 
Has done!


Happy mother's day to all the mother's out there and may god continue to 
Bless you all!

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

From the Shepherd to His Flock: a Parody of Lord Byron's ''She walks in beauty''

THEY graze in beauty on the land
     of grassy glades and dewy dales,
and all that's best of dark and tanned
     meets in their aspect and their tails;
thus mellowed to that tender hand
     which Shepherd to gentle glen compels.

One fleece the more, one hair the less,
     had half repaired the shearless grace
which wreathes in every woolen tress
     or darkly tightens o'er their face,
where mouths serenely sweet express
     how pure, how dear their grazing-place.

And on that rump and o'er that round
     so strong, so firm, yet elegant,
the baas that win, the hooves that bound,
     but tell of days in meadows spent—
a flock at peace with all around,
     a drove whose milk is innocent.

All for You

My poems, my songs, urges of my heart
All for my love of you
My thought's voyage from you start
My nights only your dreams view 

The roses blowing in my heart are
Your gifts and so is the desert of my soul
The ink flowing from my pen for sure
Bears the color of tears that from eyes roll
  
The fireflies of your memory
Brighten stark darkness of my anguish
My nights dark and dreary
Away from you I’m like out of water fish

 The flowers, the breeze, the star’s galaxy
The expressions of my love of you
The time in search of you flee
The fleeting moments halt for you

Please Let Me Love You Tonight

Been sittin’ here thinkin’ all day long
Wantin’ to-say somthin’ that didn’t sound wrong
You walk around the corner and your smile meets mine
My heart starts racin’ like it does every time

I knew this could be a special night
Wanted it to work out just right
So I practiced the words all day
Had ‘em all arranged so I could say

Please let me love you tonight
Will you be my wife?
I want to be with you tonight
And the rest of my life
Please let me love you tonight

Her tears comin’ down were a sight to see
Took my hand smiled and said to me
You know I love you a lot
I don’t even know how to stop

I took her in my arms held real tight
My tears runnin’ down were quite a sight
Now we’re both cryin’ unsure why
Guess we knew this was for life

Please let me love you tonight
Will you be my wife?
I want to be with you tonight
And the rest of my life
Please let me love you tonight

We walked that night in the rain
Not really carin’ what we were sayin’
We were married on a warm day in May
Flowers everywhere scented the day

I said my vows as I looked in her eyes
Seeing only love no compromise
I’ll always remember that fine day
Me tryin’ to find the right words to say


Please let me love you tonight
Will you be my wife?
I want to be with you tonight
And the rest of my life
Please let me love you tonight

Yeah baby please let me love you tonight
Please let me love you tonight
You know I will for the rest of my life…

FOREVER

I've been wanting you, forever
Dreaming of this moment, forever 
Even before you knew, and I did too 
There's always been a me and you 
We're forever!

The world may not be kind, forever 
Perhaps people will stay blind, forever 
But if its only me and you, that ever get a clue 
This uncommon love is forever true 
We're forever!

Life will have its up and downs, forever
It might be a crazy merry go round, forever 
But each day is new, on all of them.. I love you 
There's always been a me and you
We're forever!

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!

Sing Me

moon river
teach me how to pray
teach me how to say
i love her
and give
my words two wings
to fly abroad
to heaven
and her precious ears

moon river
send to me your tide
and with these words i cry
send out
to sea
and drift, out with my pride
tears from my eyes
to reach her
on that distant shore

moon river
set my heart a sail
and guied me with the stars
to my love
and when
my time should end
let ours begin
a brand new love never to end

moon river
thank you for my song
don't let it be too long
while i sing
but please
let these two arms
find the two arms
that held me when i was alone

moon river
hear me while i pray
please grant my wish today
and give me
my hope
and heaven i longed
so very long
and i'll be ever greatful to you

Friendly Reminder

She said..........

You workaholic, you're intoxicated
'Seems like work is all that's on your mind
With all the extra money, you've been making
It looks like you could pay your bills on time

Now you don't have to ruin your good credit
You don't have to let it go that far
I'll wait up 'til midnight on you baby
But you can be expecting a late charge

Baby, your account is delinquent
You need to make arrangements with me
If I don't hear from you this evening
I'm gonna form a collection agency

'Just a friendly reminder from this lonely heart of mine
Your lovin', baby, is two payments behind

girl with the diamond eyes

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 


but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes


this girl is more beautiful than anything
she is my perfect vision of life
she means everything to me

shes my angel and my dream
but at times she can be 
the devil to me

we are crazy in desire
we fit together well 
shes crazy 
and im crazy for her

shes bad 
and ill be bad for her

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 


but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes


yea my girl
with the diamond eyes

she makes me feel crazy
sometimes
but i dont mine as long as i can call
that girl with the diamond eyes mine

i pray they always shine

Rose Wine

Your strong hand 
beneath my head
my Love in your Blood
turned from friendship
did spread
into More
the first time you
took my Hand
and traveled every
line, of my Flesh land
the way you reflect your soul
Into my Eyes, 
makes me forget my small stature
shape, size
in this world
I wish to carry your 
future child
be it boy or girl
be them strong of spirit
Smarts of street and class
leaders of Eminence
Sweet mixed with Sass
I see this future
as I fall head first, spilling
into your secure embrace
like a single bottle of Rose Wine
Down to the last Taste

Fellowship and Love

It is a wonderful feeling when we come together in love and fellowship.
psalm 133:1 says Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethern to dwell together in 
unity!
It is also better to give than to receive, that's why this is such a special day.
we give to you our fellowship and love, always remembering that to God be the glory in all 
that we do.
Fellwowship and love lift's the spirit and makes the heart glad.
In our giving we want to show how special you are, and the love we have for you.
giving is a gift and let us not forget the greatest gift of all.
John 3;16 for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever 
beleiveth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

we give our fellowship and love to you!

A Folk Song from India

BACKGROUND DETAILS ARE GIVEN ON MY BLOG POSTED TODAY
'Folk Songs Themes Are Same In Every Language'

A Folk Song from India

O my Sakhi,* bring the Dholak*,      we would sing a song,
O friend, my love is coming,	                 from a far-off city,
While bringing the Dholak,*         bring also the   Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and        we would dance  together.


The Jhoola*  is ready,		       on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak, 	we would swing high touching the sky,
O my friend, bring the Dholak*,  we would sing a song together,
O Sakhi* my love is coming,	                         from a far-off city,


O my friend push the swing,                            so high in the sky,
I may see my Sasuma*,                  leaving the house for a while,
The swing is ready,			      on the branch of  Mango tree,
On the beat of Dholak,    we would swing high touching the sky,


O my friend please push the swing,                  so high in the sky,
That I may see, my Nanda,*     also leaving the house for a while,
O Sakhi,  please, increase the swinging,            so high in the sky,
That I may see my Dever* also,      leaving the house for a  while.

O my friend increase the swinging,                     so high in the air,
That I may see my Sasur*too, have to leave the house for a while, 
O my dear Sakhi,* please increase the swinging, so high this time,
That I may see the face of my love,        coming after a long while.

O my friend,            please push the swing   in such a way this time,
That my love may come to me,                     searching his dear wife. 
Then Sakhi increase the beat and sound of the Dholak,   so much so,
That everyone may feel that   we are singing the  song in full swing,
When you bring the Dholak,*                      bring also the Mazeera,*
We would sing a song and                        we would dance   together.

Sea impression

                 
                 Wave a sea softened
                  and a pain and a tenderness
                   throw dreams in fascination
                   of the blue.
                   And let shave the waves of
                   Your eternity , oh, weigh
                    above me,
                    oh,weigh a  coast of years.
                    Carry far in azure, spiral
                    ships,
                    with bulging little abdomens,
                    flutter with mahagony pinions
                    and already in vain  expect you
                    to stop the scales harbours 
                    with hot flames for You are
                    open.
                    Far away, far away ,far away,
                    stretched string,
                    heart and frank await the 
                    hymn of June.
                    All sea sisters are dressed in
                    mother-of-pearl garment
                    embroidered of kiss of 
                    eternity. 
                    In the morning hunts them
                    fishermen and revive with
                    breath of their man’s hands.
                    In the evening girls wash 
                    their black tunics,
                    in their blue hearts,
                    their feet white ,who cadge
                    heavy chains.
                    The night is squeezed enigma
                    and ugly,
                    predatory like a bat pecking
                    of scarlet fig.
                    Sea sisters, sea sisters,
                    remember His steps 
                    which go through you noiselessly,
                  and ou swing like
                  bloody wine-
                 hold in His fingers Herod,
                 Pilate washes his hands,
                in Yours heirs
               and they bristled like winter
               icicles bristles of innoncent blood .
               There at Golgotha 
                hearing terrible cry,
                blood gushes like
               wounded river disappear
               like Easter roses,
              in weeds of flushed 
     preditory crowd,
     to open way of
     saving.
     Who is He?
     Do you heard 
     His name ?
     He is Messiah,
     God’s anoited
      Jesus Christ.
      Like little sheeps,
      clouds of candy floss,
      they welcome festivaly.
       Barefooted are feet 
      of lovely swarthy steps
     of the sun, came to bow,
      before You , Creator.
      The sea throws his 
       magnificent silver flesh,
      blue like heavently lace,
       to swallow all stars 
       only Bethlehem’s
      stays inextinguishable,
       pretty like uncreated
      like an apple of not 
      born girl.

DANCE

A young novice in a new town
where He didn't know a soul
His head was spinning so fast
he just wanted to do his role

Oh.. it's hard to be the rookie
where every single thing is new
Stepped outside the boundaries 
'cause he really didn't have a clue

He was living for the weekend
time to finally relax and unwind
Jumping off the conveyer belt
where he'd been running blind

Now he's off to the county dance
feels like the whole town is there
But on this turf he's comfortable
and pretty girls are everywhere

Not a shy bone is in his body
one by one he takes their hand
Feels like Heaven in this moment
he's loving this thumping band

You talk about total cluelessness
he thought the night was going well
One boy didn't like his girl chasing 
now his eye is starting to swell

He never thought about social politics
wow, was that a huge mistake
Be careful how you compliment
or next bones he might just break

Friend, when your new in the city
but careful who you romance
Those pretty girls might be taken
and not just by your dance!

*The Town is Poetry Soup.  The Dance is the exchange of comments.  The black eye was because the new writer didn't know all the politics going on here.  More details.. You'll have to read between the lines :)

Braille Screams

                                               Within the days,
                                                   eyes of ilex
                                                  lulling to the
                                                 snowy grass.
                                            Hearts and echoes
                                                  beating past.
                                         To want them would be
                                                   vox and vex;
                                             My love is silence
                                                    at its best.
                                          Speak while I am still
                                                   a living verb
                                             and not the words
                                                upon my grave.
                                             Consume me like
                                               the ocean waves,
                                        before I am nothing more
                                                  than literature.

I died Because I Love You

I died Because I Love You [Lyrics of Gospel Song] You are the one who walks on water, you’re the one who raises the dead The fact that you ever bother, leaves me so astounded. My existence is not perfect, nor ever could it be. Why you would ever bother, always amazes me. Chorus Lord, you hold me close so gently, when into your presence I come. With love and compassion, your quiet whispers become, “I died because I love you, and I’d do it all again. I suffered so intently, at the hands of earth’s men. I died because I love you, and I’d do it all again. **********Yes, I died because I love you, and I’d do it all again!”*********** Those words always touch my heart, and truly heal my soul. Just to know you love me, such love to grasp, enroll. For I’m a wretched sinner, no greater wretch could be, And yet, you said, “I died because I love you, I died on Calvary.” My heart aches when I falter, because it’s you I disappoint. But instead of a scolding, my forgiveness you appoint. It’s because you love me, that I’ve grown to love you too. And each time I hear you say those words, my love for you just grew. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com

Black and White

You’ve maddened me to the core 
You singed me with your ferocious fire
We’re opposites… we’ll never integrate  
We can’t blend with each other…
Your love and I’m hate 
We’re contrary to each other…

So don’t even think about 
Getting us back together 
Because without a doubt, 
We don’t click with each other…

So let us go our own way…

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be deleted from my mind…

I’m not the one that should pay the price
You act as if you’re an angel from heaven
But, you’re a fiend…a devil from hell...who needs your advice?
Could someone unchain me from this prison?

So let us prepare for that day…

Fear and bewilderment build inside of our minds
Taking over us…we’re wasting valuable time
Terror and wrath injects into our veins…time starts to unwind 
I’m regaining my glory…this moment feels so sublime  

You think you’re innocent?
I can sense your guilt…bleeding through you
Do you live to feed me anguish? 
Don’t deny it…you crafty demon…no wonder I feel blue

Let’s get ready for battle…
I’ll watch you decay…
IT’S PAY BACK TIME . . .
Taste my fury and my agony 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be defeated…

I scream before nightfall
I close my eyes to kiss my demise
I want to disappear 
Scratch away my desolation
Wipe away my tears…
Spewing out of my eyes…like a waterfall
Tonight, there will be dismay
There will be suffering 
After sundown…
Failure and glory will expose like stars in the midnight sky
Who will earn the crown? 
No one knows in silent wars – who can reveal the light in goodbye
  
Why are we black and white?
Are you too afraid to know the reason why? 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to suffer alone…

In Pleasure

In Pleasure          
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears


White suit, top hat, pride feeling higher than spectacular 
The ugly duckling has opened a new chapter
Revealing transformation that’s becoming a true sensation
Buried in his inaugural feelings of gold treatment
There’s always a silver lining after the disaster
Every battle, each day 
Sanity is mastered
Life tries to defeat us, expiration tries to meets us
But tonight he’s on top of the world
He’s on top of Thee
He’s on top of a feathered fame beak 
This is one hell of a duckling I must proclaim.
Our love floats in current 
Through the City of Jacks
You’re the only Queen of my deck 
As we coast along these sparkling waters splashing our tails
The momentum of the St. Johns River flows to a love hotel
Vapors of our spirits arises above
Elevating beyond the skies
There’s no limit tonight 
As my mind is blown on cloud nine 
With love and happiness is in the atmosphere
Scrolling the screams of these peaceful waters 
With mean swagger
This night is unbelievable 
Unbelievable is this; unbelievable I won’t miss
 
I was once viewed as a total tragedy, with no immunity from havoc
Or grievance
Frowned upon by my community as a under achiever
As if I was an oil spill disaster 
With no relief at hand, 
But to tonight I clean up well with Dawn
 
The river flows peacefully after the storm deforms
Accompanied by grace, I’m accompanied by love
Accompanying my side 
Is a woman of grace.
As we keep our heads above these judgmental waters in Florida
The rivers will flow to Fingers Point
At the end of this place called home sweet home tonight
I’m just a kiss away 
From the Full Moonlight.

I Don't Love You Anymore

It happened one day
I never saw it coming
Oh maybe I did but I hid behind a numbing

I was wondering why she’d stayed home that day
With her busy schedule she should have been away
She sat down beside me at the table
Smiled and said let’s talk if you’re able

When I heard her words, I broke down and cried
That way she looked at me, my whole world just died
I don’t love you anymore
I don’t love you anymore…

I didn't think I'd ever feel the same again
Then a friend said don't look back, looking forward’s the way to mend
In two years you won't believe how your life will evolve
At the time I couldn’t see what that would involve

Cause when I heard her words, I just broke down and cried
That way she looked at me, my whole world just died
I don’t love you anymore
I don’t love you anymore…

The advice held the truth that I couldn’t see
In the end I think both of us were really set free
It’s been three years now since I heard those words
My life is on track and no longer blurred

Because with time all things change
With positive thoughts you can really exchange
I'm back in a place where I thank God every day
For he's blessed me I know in so many ways

When I heard those words, I broke down and cried
That way she looked at me, my whole world just died
I don’t love you anymore
I don’t love you anymore…

Well… you know, I still love you and more..
But I love my new life that you gave me that day
And I’ll always remember what together we made
What together we made…

Some have asked about how song turned out. Check for on itunes under my name Shawn Sackman. Thanks.

A Dream

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

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

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

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

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

Waiting for you

I’m  just waiting for you
Come back to me every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you life  is cloudy  sky

I’m  just waiting for you
Waiting  to  fly  with you    
To cuddle with me  every night

I’m  just waiting for you
Without you live is boiling bubbly 
Come back to me every night

A Farmer's Eyes and a Sailor's Shadow

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

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

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

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

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

These Green Hills

Driving this old country road always puts my mind at ease
Gently rolling hills, some cows, creeks, some trees

It's another rainy day drive
The green hills look so alive 
Full of life, not the usual brown
How I wish you were still around..

These green hills... These green hills...
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go..

It’s the first day of a new year
And it still feels like you're here
The drive is different this time, I know
Miss your smile surrounding me, can’t let go

I remember we stopped at that farm over there
And sipped lemonade in the warm air
They took our picture on the front porch swing
You laughed so when i tried to sing..

These green hills... These green hills
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go..

Passing mile marker ninety-three
Oh.. you got so mad at me 
I wouldn't stop to see the baby calf
I wish i did, now makes me laugh

There's a lot I'd do different now
I know our time is past, yet somehow..
Green hill memories, they won't let go
They're part of me, this I know..

These green hills... These green hills
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go..

I'm ok for now, I still go on..
Life's still full, maybe its just begun
But I know these green hills will not compare
With those we'll see in heaven's air

These green hills... These green hills
I miss you baby, I miss you so..
I see you everywhere I go.. 
Everywhere I go…

Some have asked about how song turned out. Check for on itunes under my name Shawn Sackman. Thanks.

"Ma "Ma we need to Talk

"Ma "Ma I wish you were still here we need to talk
I need feed back from you because you understood
This world is trying to swallow me up and spit me out
you are not here to tell me how to handle my battles

"Ma "Ma I wish you were still here we need to talk
I cry sometimes when I reach out to you and you are not here
I have so much fear because I remember how much I 
Loved you and how you were always near

"Ma "Ma I wish you were still here we need to talk
I need to hold your hand and go for a walk 
I  need to hear you say everything is going to be alright

I need to buy you some flowers, wish you Happy Mother's Day 
say how much I love you and make your day bright.

"Ma "Ma we need to talk!


I want to remind everyone out there that still has a Mother treat her Good while 
she is still in sight!

Too Close

Hello...It's me again
I don't need nothing at all
I was in the neighborhood
Too close to call

Guess I'm late for work again
My boss is climbing the wall
But I've got a good excuse
Too close to call

Too close to your sweet lips
That's where I love to be
Too close ain't close enough
When it comes to you and me

On your mark...get set...go
'Race you down the hall
We never wonder who gets there first
Too close to call

The Final Confessions II

These were my confessions
(A message to God)
The light begins to fade
(It’s time to go)
Back into the shadows
(That hard black fog)
Where darkness has its way
(God rest your soul)

Nothing left to tell you
(It’s all been said)
No more songs to write
(This silent Fall)
Nothing left to offer 
(The well’s been bled)
From a shadow’s waning life
(Who lost it all)

Take my words and hold them
(Don’t be afraid)
Place them near your heart
(And heal your pain)
Shadow words will kiss you
(And heal your pain)
When your world turns dark
(Don’t’ be afraid)

And I kiss you
Kiss you
I kiss you in the dark……..

Forever Changed

June 18, 2013 our world was Forever Changed
We where over halfway home
When we got the call from our baby sister

Said we need to get back home
We need to come as fast as we can drive
Mom really needs us
Something’s wrong with Daddy
The whole way we drove 80
Hoping & Praying we’d make it in time

Our Family & Friends were weeping 
By the time we got to his side
We knew our Daddy had been taking
And our hearts they were breaking
We never got to say Goodbye
We each softly kissed that man
We four sisters climbed in his bed 
We laid down beside him 
And cried just like babies
For our world was Forever Changed

I love the way your blue eyes shine

I love the way your blue eyes shine.
.
I love the way your gentle blue eyes shine
As your lovely face, it tells me you are mine
No words could tell, the love I have for you
It shines through me, so pure and sweet and true.

My years with you, have been the best I’ve known
Through all these years my love has grown and grown
I know, at times I’m hard to understand
Yet how I melt beneath our love so grand.

Until the end of time we two be one
Our love so vast it could outshine the sun
Together we two drown within such bliss
I’d die without your love, be sure of this.

Nothing could ever stem my love for you
It fills the Earth, the seas, the sky so blue
Forever and a day, this love in me
Will join us two together endlessly.

A KISS

A kiss from an angel, is brief.
A kiss from a frog, is dirty,
Kissed by an army of frogs,
Thee is as unclean as sin.
Along awaited kiss, is after matrimony, the bible says.
And is worthy, glory and sterling.
A kiss from a princess from the rich coast,
Is seldom like the blue rose,
And floats with benisons.
Princess together we can fly with-
With our butterfly wings,
Like Romeo and Juliet.
Titanic we are.
Epic lovers we are,
When I put my arms a round your neck,
And open my lips to find your tongue,
I know you! no one can kiss my lips like you do,
When your lips linger around mine, it’s the aroma of your saliva
Leave it all to the French,
The French kiss at the Eiffel tower!

Cowgirl Hat Song on CD

She has a cowgirl hat and a set of spurs,
And sometimes she's as gentle as a cat that purrs,
Imagine that....she's my way with words,
And her and I together'd tame a buffalo herd,

Yea! she's the cats meow...can make a racehorse nicker,
Make a wolf pack howl...when our hearts are gettin' quicker,
When we go downtown to dance and drink some liquor,
We get unwound..meet friends...the mood gets thicker,

Imagine that  and also this,
I can't resist her country cowgirl kiss,
And that is that and this is this,
She can't resist this country cowboys kiss,

Yea! she's the cats meow....can make a racehorse nicker,
Make a wolf pack howl...when our hearts are gettin' quicker,
When we go downtown to dance and drink some liquor,
We enjoy the sounds of those drums and guitar pickers.

And that is that...along with this,
I can't resist her country cowgirl kiss,
Imagine that...she's my way with words..
Yea! her and I together'd tame a buffalo herd,
Yea! her and I together'd tame a buffalo herd,
My baby has a cowgirl hat......Imagine that!!

A Simple Kiss

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

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

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

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

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

You Alone

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

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

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

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

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Lovely Rap lol

Im with you, I get a rush
You leave, I get crushed
Cant wait to see whats in store for us

We have a future of learning
Lot of love to be earning
Its you, you got my heart turning

All ways, different directions
You plus me, in gods protection
Stand up now, if you got an objection

I think it's love, dont try an stop us
No need to impress
Through this life we'll progress

We'll hold true
Things we never knew
Not as one But Two

Love I never knew
A beginning so true
Lets make our debut

Kiss me, I feel high
Hug me, dont question why
Without you I'd die

One more time, Let me tell you this
I need your love I need your kiss
Never will I miss

Forever and only, baby I love you
What you going to do
Say it back, Ha baby I already knew ;))

DOG NAMED BLUE

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

She's Nobodys Fool On CD

She's a charming love attraction,
Always dresses fit to thrill,
When she's looking for some action,
She's looking for a heart to steal,

And her charming eyes can mesmerize,
The heart of any man,
While her warming smiles can magnetize,
Them right into her hand,

And she's nobodys fool,
She's sexy sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like a fool

And she gets some satisfaction,
When they say her love is cruel,
And her only shown reaction is,
"I'm nobodys fool!"

She can easily charm the devil,
From the heart of any man,
And her way is having several,
Caught up in her hand,

And she's nobodys fool,
She's sexy, sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like a fool,

And her charming eyes can mesmerize,
The heart of any man,
While her warming smiles can magnetize,
Them right into her hand,

She"s a charming love attraction,
Beaming with sex appeal,
When she"s looking for some action,
She's just looking for the thrill,

And she's nobodys fool,
So sexy, sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like a fool,

She's a charming love attraction,
So sexy, sweet and cool,
And she gets some satisfaction,
Being nobodys fool,

And she's nobodys fool,
She's sexy sweet and cool,
She can charm any man right into her hand,
Then drop them like an fool,

Redneck Angel

Redneck Angel
Lyrics By Robert Taylor


A thousand cases of beer
Hangin’ with Jack all night
Sleeping with women from a bar
Not knowin’ their names when I woke

Then I saw your eyes in the dark
Sitting alone in the bar
An Angel from heaven sent
Dressed in Daisy dukes
And red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle

I walked over and talked to you
Just hoping that you were real
We talked and then we kissed
Spent our time together
Drinking, dancing and talking the night away
How could God have so blessed
A poor assed Redneck boy like me.

I saw you down at the swamp
Wearing plaid, with mud in your hair
You were a redneck angel from heaven
Dressed in Daisy Dukes
And red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle


Then I gave my heart to you
At the Antioch Baptist Church
Vows given without fear
My love is yours forever
I looked at your eyes through your veil
And you were crying with happiness
You were a Redneck angel from heaven
Dressed in daisy dukes
Red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwards miracle

How could God have so blessed
A poor assed redneck boy like me. 

Hiding but always in plain sight
Drinking, fishing, mud bogging
Things a girl shouldn’t do
How could you be who you are
Sharing my love and my life

How could God have so blessed
A Redneck like me. 

An angel from heaven sent
Dressed in Daisy Dukes
Red hot cowboy boots
You’re a backwoods miracle

Yesterday

Yesterday, the blue green just before sunset was
All around me...invading
My memories
Troubles disappeared, they
Seemed to vanish beyond the horizon
So
Far
Away...

Now, as lavender leaks to black
It
Looks
As
Though stars are born..
They're one by one rising, as if
Here
To
Stay.....forever

Oh what peace..
I
Believe I could loose myself 
In your blue green eyes..
Yesterday, the sunset invaded my memories.........

Been Waiting For You

Got the wind in my hair, the sun overhead
Life’s pretty good, nothing misread
Sounds of the surf fill my ears
Been looking for you all these years
In my thoughts I knew when it was right
You'd come out of nowhere and into my life

You make me smile every day and so...
When I’m with you I want you to know
When I’m with you it all makes sense
My heart is full, there’s no pretense

I’ve been waiting for you but didn't know it
I saw your face, I felt your heart, but I couldn’t show it

I dreamt of how we met, and though it was late
You walked around a corner as though it was fate
We’ll both knew at once, though it seemed
A thought, a hope, a kind of dream

If I close my eyes you take me there
As I look at you I cant help but stare
I swim in the love I see in your eyes 
I know your God’s gift and my prize

I’ve been waiting for you but didn't know it
I saw your face, I felt your heart, but I couldn’t show it

The south of France or Malibu
A beach is where I long to be with you
A walk on the sand holding your hand
It feels good just to be your man

People around, lots of chatter
I’m lost in your eyes, it doesn’t matter 
Haut Couture or rue Antibes sales
Love being with you for three-hour meals

I’ve been waiting for you but didn't know it
I saw your face, I felt your heart, but I couldn’t show it

I thank the stars above 
For leading me to your light your love
I knew someday I’d find a soul that some call mate
Didn’t know when, left it to fate

I’ve been waiting for you but didn't know it
I saw your face, I felt your heart, but I couldn’t show it

Now I just close my eyes and I know it’s right
And just the next step in our new life…

He said she said.......

He said she said.....
I have heard it all and some more sometimes it makes me want to walk out he 
door.  Why do you make me feel this way? telling me what all the people say.
He said she said every time I turn around don't you know this is bringing me 
down.
Why can't it be about you and I? stop bringing everyone in our relationship this 
makes me want to cry. if he said she said is the way it has to be, how in the world 
do you think you can make it with me?

Light Six Candles

I light a candle to honor Your light
 ..................................Your life
 ..................................Your love

You take love over gold
A lovesick humble man You`ve made me
All we gotta do now is to keep up the heartbeat
See You standing there in the candle light..
I worship the life You`ve given me

High on love,high on life
Wheel of love keeps on rollin`
Two lovers becomes three lifes
Three lifes makes a family
The big wheel of life keeps on turning

I light a candle to honor Your light
..................................Your energy
..................................Your aura

There`s no wind strong enough to blow out that candle
Stronger then any forces nature could ever come up with
In the midst of a crowd,Your energy lights up..
..stands out like a shining and heartfelt beam
Close enough to touch heaven,such a sence of paradise

Your spirit embraces mine
Twin souls of mesmerized equality
The big wheel keeps on turnin`
Its never wrong to let love be fulfilled
Sweetie...am close enough to touch paradise tonight

Your light...love..and energy keeps giving my life a meaning

Rose Hips Lady

Rose hips lady
Your field is ripe
Bury my torn body
In that rain-soaked night

Taste those sweet confessions
On your baby breath
Lift this wounded flag
Into your burning nest

Oh, yes, I will
I will

Rose hips lady
Your field is ripe
Bury my torn body
In that rain-soaked night

Tame the roaring tiger
Never lets you rest
Take my last reward 
From your moonlit breasts

Oh, yes, I will
I will

Daddy’s gone hunting 
He’s gone away
Daddy’s gone hunting
Won’t be back for days

Left you with a lover
Makes a shrine 
Of your skin

Left you with a lover
Takes you down
Roads of sin

Left you all alone 
Alone

And the knots cut deep
Through the musk and flesh
Of hot regret
And the love you need
It’s a shadow
Never lets you rest

You release the Beast
From a well that’s wet
You will confess
That the love you need
It’s a shadow
Never lets you rest

Rose hips lady
Aaaaaah......

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.

Crawl Baby, Crawl Baby
Scribble on that Wall, Baby
Society's Chains aren't meant for you
Stand Straight and stand up Tall
I'll Stop your Fall

It Warms the Earth around you
And it Answers to no-one

Fly Free One Fly
Your Trail will Rip the Sky
Your Name will Shine in Lights someday
Up where the Eagles Fly

Seize your every Chance Baby
Don't let 'em say "it can't be done"
Go leave 'em in a Trance
Dance Baby Dance
 
Soar Baby Soar Baby
To a far off Distant Shore, Baby
Have 'em Follow you, to Heavens Gate
And leave 'em wantin' more
Soar Baby Soar

Love Baby Love Baby
A Gift from God above Baby
The Greatest Gift Mankind can Claim
Surrounds you like a Glove

Fireworks Hill

Let’s go climb
And move back time
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

Long before 
The cynics arrived
Before the laughter died
And God returned the day to night

Where dazzling fireworks
Rained sparkles
On our lives
Two strange birds
Came together
And opened up their eyes

Let’s go climb 
We’ll move back time

Fireworks Hill, Fireworks Hill
Far from my mind
Never forgotten
Fireworks Hill, Fireworks Hill
We became one there
So very often

And there are vivid colors 
Blasting through the sky
Dancing rainbows 
I really want to taste
There is weeping smoke
Painting all the stars
Burning graveyards 
For the human race

Let’s go climb
And move back time
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

We’ll race to the edge
Fulfill our pledge
It was written in blood
The heat of our love

Oh, jump, baby, jump
We’ll fly away together
Jump, baby, jump
Our bodies joined forever

Let’s go climb
And move back time 
To that mysterious hill
Where a boy first met his girl

Fireworks hill, fireworks hill
I see the sparkles in the air
Fireworks hill, fireworks hill
I smell the dazzle of your hair
Fireworks hill, Fireworks hill
We flew to Heaven over there

Let’s go climb
We’ll move back time
(Forever…with you)

DON'T LET HER GO

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would

If I had chance
If had a chance again

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would

If I had chance
If had a chance again



Before she walked out the door
She screamed and threw glass on
 the floor she said I hate you I said
 I hate you more she said I am never
 coming back I said well now I am glad for sure

She looked me in my eyes
I looked her in her eyes
And we wondered if our
Words were truth or lie
She started to cry she tryed
To hold tears back so she
Rubbed her eyes and walked
Threw the door

I grabbed the broom and 
swept the glass on the floor 
I heard three gun shots then
I opened the door and
there she was on the floor...
it was her jealous ex boyfriend
 she didn't want him no more...

I kneeled in her blood streaming on
 the floor,and lifted her lifeless body off the floor

I Said come back baby
Come back I won't say
Those harsh things any more

Come back baby
Come back why the
hell did you go
Out that door
Out that door

Please get off the floor
Let's go in side

Her soul was no longer inside

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would 

If I had chance
If had a chance again

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would

If I had chance
If had a chance again

She stole from me

She stole from me
 
She stole from me
 The beauty of my youth
 The innocence of my manhood
 The soundness of my mind
 She corrupted everything in me like a HIV virus
 She stole from me, my pure loving heart
 
Like a thief in the night she came into my life
 Stealing what i valued the most
 My honour, dignity, integrity and pride
 She stole from me my passion 
She stole from me my kingly smile
 She went away with the treasures of my kingdom
 
She stole from me what was not hers
 Tried to drove me to hell in a ferrari
 Taking what was not given to her
 She stole from me my desires and my dreams
 She took off with my happiness
 She defied all the laws of my heart
 
She stole from me the hope of a better tomorrow
 She forced herself to dwell in the comforts of my family and friends
 Gave herself a title in my life
 Relied on my ignorance of life
 She stole what i deemed to be mine 
Now i am just a shadow of a man.

Love Be Like Before Song on CD

What's happened to our love world,
You were mine and I was yours,
What's happened to our love girl,
Why can't love be like brfore,

Yes, you were mine and I was yours,
The love light shined in our love world,
What's happened to the way we were,
To our love girl?

Why can't love be like before,
When you were mine and I was yours,
We had good times in our love world,
Why can't love be like before?

Yes, you were mine and I was yours,
The love light shined for us dear girl,
What's happened to the way were,
To our love world.

When you were mine and I was yours,
The love light shined in our love world,
What's happened to the way we were,
Has happened to our love girl,

Why can't love be like before
When the love light shined for us dear girl,
We had good times in our love world,
Why can't love be like before,

Yes, you were mine and I was yours....
Why can't love be like before.

A Moment In Time

 I awoke to the song of the robin
 Calling out my name
 I felt the rays of sunshine
 Beating on my chest

 I thought I had forgotten that feeling
 That you gave to me last night
 I bask here in the memories
 Thinking of love songs and you

 I don't know the meaning
 I don't really care
 I don't want this feeling
 To ever disappear

 So if you please my darling
 Listen to my songs
 They come from lonely heart strings
 Hoping you will play along

Memories

Oh memories, they come and go I remember the fun, I remember the glow Remember your smile, tearing my world apart I never saw it coming, I thought I was smart!! I miss you dear, I badly do I can't anymore stay away from you Oh memories, keep come and go!! I remember the hours we spend living a dream The flavors you like (to add) in your ice cream Your passion to cats and how dogs make you scream I remember how I used to mimic your walk Your clothes and how we used to talk I can't anymore stay away from you Oh memories, keep come and go!! The night is so long, I spend it in cry I love you dear, now I can't deny Your eyes are the reason I shall not die Your love is not a choice, it's meant to be I can't live without, have nowhere to flee I can't anymore stay away from you Oh memories, keep come and go!! Falling in love is like jumping from somewhere high The mind says: don't do it..You will die The heart say: do it..You will learn to fly I miss you dear, I badly do I can't anymore stay away from you Oh memories, keep come and go!! The moment I saw you, you made my day Since then I'm down on my knees to pray They keep telling me I have to get over you I don't know how to turn water into snow Once I hear your name memories just flow I can't forget I can't let go I can't anymore stay away from you Oh memories, oh!!

My First Car

My lawyer drives a Jaguar, a slim and glitzy marque. He seldom ventures near the Law, (the work's done by his clerk), buts sends in bills at Partners Rates; that avaricious shark. My Broker's Merc is spanking new; it takes his fishing rod. He, as of right, once gently slipped in shoes his father trod. All pomp and circumstance he struts, this self appointed God. Accountants' BMWs have litres by the score. Mine's filled his up with gadgetry and Wilton on the floor. And now he's had his Coat of Arms emblazoned on the door. I used to have a set of wheels, a Morris Minor van. It was a dear and much loved friend which ran and ran and ran. I polished it with tender care and was its greatest fan. Alas! It's gone to pay the bills. But why? I cannot see. All day they guff and huff and puff and then demand a fee. I do not want their 'sound advice', I want a car - for me! ~

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

A Kiss Of Sunshine

Are you kissed the sun?
And I am today, on the roof ..
Standing next to her,
Looking at all the above.
The feeling of flying
When hands touch me,
Inside the discharge current
With a heart connected.

We looked together at the Sun,
She closed eyes to me with a kiss,
But the sun was shining in the face
Skin gently kissing,
Illuminating pieces of face
I felt the wind
Lips very slowly,
Kissed her shoulders ...

Sun looked and smiled,
Tenderness giving flowers
Look us met,
And we inhaled particles of love ...

Moon Landing

When I first saw you
That night I was running
You blasted me away
Onto the moon landing

90 degrees out in the desert
 (we were in the park) 
Cupid shot the arrow right through my heart
 (Light shown through the dark) 
Orion’s belt started glistening
As you took me on a trip to the moon, the moon landing

When I first saw you
That night I was running
You blasted me away
Onto the moon landing

You took my breath away
Just as they say
The puppy came out of me
And I just had to see…
The moon landing
The moon landing
The moon landing

Missing You

I miss you so much
I miss our talks
I miss our jokes
I miss your hug
I miss your hand touch
I deeply miss your smile
I miss all in you
that one day was mine
and now I can not find..

I even do miss our silly fights
That used to show me
how much you truly mean to me
being so in my life, preciously..
I miss yout lift in me, ups
I miss the world
when with you everything was fine 
I simply do miss
everything in you and with you..

Since the moment you left me all alone,
turned your back
leaving me with no clue
since then...
The sky is no longer blue,
my nights are  only lit by the moon
and not YOU..
everything sounds off mood
I do not feel the beauty of life..

I know Ido exist
but as a body, when its soul just left

Trust me when I saw you
I do not care how awesome by my self, I can stand
but it means everything to me
of how truly I am awesome
when you are with me...

Oh man..

I truly do miss you..

Only love keeps us dreaming

Dreams are unoriginal, and movement's traditional
 So keep moving, everyone’s watching and scoring your every move
 The feeling it could pay out has severed away somehow
 And every time it works out, you'd like to cash out
 Tell me there is a reason to keep motion on our side
 I guess I could be wrong, but my feelings stand strong
 "If you play your numbers..." 
Now you’ve got me thinking about routine and dollar signs
 If we could only doubt the biggest part of what could happen
 Sight but without depth perception
 "If you play your numbers..." 
Now you’ve got me thinking about routine and dollar signs
 Too bad we're all about the biggest part of what could happen
 Sight but without depth perception
Hope that we are destined and not testing out our luck
 Through all of the hands we hold, we’re losing in stamina
 So fade this scene, everyone’s watching a scripted lullaby
 Whatever your heart may feel won’t amount to the sex appeal
And every time it works out, you'd like to cash out
 Tell me there is a reason to keep motion on our side
 I guess I could be wrong, but my feelings stand strong
 "If you play your numbers..." 
Now you’ve got me thinking about routine and dollar signs
 If we could only doubt the biggest part of what could happen
 Sight but without depth perception
 "If you play your numbers..." 
Now you’ve got me thinking about routine and dollar signs
 Too bad we're all about the biggest part of what could happen
 Sight but without depth perception
We'll shimmer and grind our teeth 
At the thought of our competition fading
 We'll speak in monologues
 Well I am waiting, I am waiting
This could be a test of desire, so stay 'til the lights burn out
 Dreams are unoriginal, and movement traditional
 So keep moving, everyone’s watching and scoring your every move
 The feeling it could pay out has severed away somehow
"If you play your numbers..." 
Now you’ve got me thinking about routine and dollar signs
 If we could only doubt the biggest part of what could happen
 Sight but without depth perception
 "If you play your numbers..." 
Now you’ve got me thinking about routine and dollar signs
 Too bad we're all about the biggest part of what could happen
 Sight but without depth perception
Sight but without depth perception
 Sight but without depth perception
 We'll shimmer and grind our teeth 
At the thought of our competition fading
 We'll speak in monologues
 Well I am waiting, I am waiting
I'm writing for playing on an empty hand
 Is trying worth nothing when chance defines an end? 
I'm writing for playing 
Is ambition all we'll ever have?

Glisten in the Moonlight

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

Don't Break My Heart

Don't break my heart.
It's a heart that'll carry on forever.

Don't break my heart.
Your love to me's the loveliest thing.

Don't break my heart.
Say you won't, from the very start.

Don't break my heart..
Find a way to keep my love.

Don't break my heart.
A love like ours will never die.

Don't break my heart.
It's a heart that'll carry on forever..

Don't break my heart.
Your love to me's the loveliest thing.

Don't break my heart..
Say you won't, from the very start.

Don't break my heart..
Find a way to keep my love..

Don't break my heart.
A love like ours will never die..

Butterfly

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

It's The Simple Things

I remember the days they were born
Both in March, cold and rainy yet we were warm
Me a new dad and my love a new mom
Not knowing what to expect, trying to be calm

Jarret was the first, it was March 25th
Time seemed to linger, our long wait was no myth
But when he decided to take his first look
We both cried at our miracle, as if from a book
It’s the simple things, oh… the simple things

The next time we were old hands, but still a little scared
Wondering how it would turn out, our strength shared
The doctor and nurse seem to show no worry
When that heart monitor slowed down in a hurry
But then Anna came so quick on that March 29th 
Our surprised little doc, still had her sweater on tight
It’s the simple things, oh… yeah, the simple things

The years go by fast, as everyone says
Somehow you don’t pay attention until, there it is
The first time he and I walked to our fishing hole
My buddy and me, him carrying his little pole
Jabbering away about the big one he’d catch
Me hanging on his every word, knowing this moment would be hard to match 
It’s the little things, man I mean the little things

She was a cute little bug, always holding a kitty, puppy or such
She with her happy heart, I love her so much
The first to make friends with whomever she met,
Her big brown doe eyes are hard to forget

The next thing I knew he’s taller than me 
With a voice as deep as the old man in the sea
His single word answers to questions left me craving more
It’s tough on a loving dad, but I know the score

She sings, oh.. how she sings wherever she goes
Our happy heart may someday star in the show
Later I pick her up and hear how the game went
Just listening to her joy, me ever so content
It’s the little things, those simple little things

I’m sitting in the car, waiting for school to abstain
‘Cause I don’t want him to have to walk home in the rain
He jumps in, looks at me and says, thanks pop
You know I love you, and that’s non-stop

It’s life’s little things…just these little things
It’s life’s little things…just enjoy the little things..

Sitting On A Cloud

Sitting on a cloud, high above the ground,  
High among the highways and the byways in the sky.
People on the hills, going where they will, 
Seem like specks beneath us as we watch the world go by.

You and I in a giant red balloon, sailing across the sky.
Heaven must be like this moment in the blue,  shared between you and I

Soaring like a hawk, where the eagles walk.  
With a burst of fire we climb higher in the air.
Dancing on a breeze, high above the trees, 
Following the currents that could take us anywhere.

You and I in a giant red balloon,  sailing across the sky.
Heaven must be like this moment shared with you,  here ‘neath a clear blue sky.

So pop the cork, and toast our new-found love, here in our red balloon.

So pop the cork, and toast our new-found love, here in our red balloon.

On our way we go, enjoying what’s below.   
From our picnic basket we’ll pull out the caviar.
Now the moments gone, but we’ll carry on,  
Floating past the sunset on our pathway to the stars.

You and I in a giant red balloon,  sailing across the sky.
Heaven must be like this moment in the blue,  shared between you and I
Heaven must be like this moment shared with you,  here ‘neath a clear blue sky.

Lullaby love

All I hear 
All I see
Is not meant for me
All I want
All I know
Is I cannot let you go

Driving forward
Moving back
Only one thing that I lack
Hope is clinging 
Holding tight
I wish you were here tonight
Dry my eyes
Hide the pain
Overwhelming to contain

For all I hear 
All I see
Is not meant for me
All I want
All I know
Is I cannot let you go


Memories set
Heart is bound
Now all must be drowned
Keep your distance
When so near
No emotions can appear
Burning love
Hidden flame
Love is such an evil game

All I hear 
All I see
Is so perfect for me
All I want
All I know
Is how it’s meant to go

A paper Rose

Who named the rose the flower of Love?

Or is it the flower of passion  or maybe undying lust?

Was there anyone who wasn't pricked by its  thorns?

Wasn't there  anyone who wasn't fooled by its beauty?

Wasn't there ever a wife who tasted the salt of  her tears

to the betrayal of a husband's lover?

Wasn't there ever a lover who  opened the diary of life

to find the wrinkled red petal of years still in waiting

What is the rose,except the scent of imagination

choking  with the  fragrance of never be mine

What's in a name?Who is the rose?Who baptised this flower?

the flower of seasons,the flower who lives in the rough 

hiding its nakedness of pain in delicate and strong

All a rose ever will be is a  birthed  flower which breeze in the  feeling of 

'You are so special' till you realise,all that you have in your hand is,was

                              A  PAPER   ROSE.

He Likes Ugly Girls

Baby, I see you starin' at him,
But you ought to give me whirl;
'Cause he's a handsome hunk,
But when he gets drunk...
Baby, he likes ugly girls.

Yeah, he still lives with his Momma
Even tho' he's 33.
She starches and irons his jeans and shirts,
And he brings home new recipes.

She's told him he's good lookin',
And there's no doubt it's true;
But when he takes home a pretty woman,
Momma says, "Son, she won't be true."

She says, "Son, if you want good lovin',
A plain and homely gal will provide.
She'll treat you right, mornin' and night;
And keep you satisfied."

So baby, you can stare at him, 
But you ought to give me a whirl;
'Cause he's a handsome hunk, 
But when he gets drunk....
Baby, he likes ugly girls.

You don't stand a chance.
That boy loves his Momma.

Yeah, he goes for ugly girls.

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?

IM GOING CRAZY

I can feel your heartbeat
Pulsating in all your words
Just like a steady drumbeat 
Your pull on me is absurd

Can you feel my heartbeat
Baby read between the lines
Just like a steady drumbeat
I can't get you off my mind

We painted up the town
Lost.. Then we were found
And when we went down
Oh Baby
We didn't count the cost
Found.. Then we were lost
Left freezing in the frost
Oh Baby

Come on and...
Feel me..  Too good, this can't be bad
Touch me.. Remind me what we had
Want me.. Sweet girl ya need your lad
Love me.. Since you've gone I'm going mad
Since you've gone I'm going mad

We painted up the town
Lost.. Then we were found
And when we went down
Oh Baby
We didn't count the cost
Found.. Then we were lost
Left freezing in the frost
Oh Baby

Come on and...
Feel me..  Too good, this can't be bad
Touch me.. Remind me what we had
Want me.. Sweet girl ya need your lad
Love me.. Since you've gone I'm going mad
Since you've gone I'm going mad
Crazy 
Crazy
I'm going crazy
Crazy 
Crazy
I'm going crazy

Coming of Age

There is music in her hands;
The graceful gestures of a different time,
Courtly manners and a black lace fan...
A hundred shaded meanings
In my daughter's eyes...
Mysterious, sibilant laughter without mystery
Without guile
Say so many things young and beautiful.

And the dance begins inside her smile
In the middle of her first kiss
That needs no translation...
While the chandelier in a debutante ballroom
Reflects flashes of joy
In a swirl of shining silk
And a trace of elusive perfume
Warming her skin for the first time.

There is such music in her hands;
She is my princess, unawakned
Surrounded by a future beloved,
And dissapointed courtiers...

There is such wonder...

I love you, Daughter Mine.

We Must

An untimely moment I always imagined
A sad past that was a match made for heaven
Breathes taken with shattering fear
For the end of us was scarcely near

We were always waiting on that moment
But the moment ended up waiting for us
You were just my heart's kryptonite 
Unlike the epiphany I had last night

I've got a lot to say, so open up your ears
We are done, the past is here
A few steps closer to being obsolete 
You just make me feel make believe

I'm glad I left when I did
Cause you were only holding me down like an 8 year old kid
All the answers turned out to be wrong
Just like the time I meant making this song

We are a lesson of the past
A story our kids will learn so fast
Cause the months I spent with you 
Turned out to never be true

As if we were a nascar race
We finished in second place
My lucidity was taking over
Making me feel stronger then a four leaf clover

In the end the love was just lust
We must move on, we must.

How Could I Not

I cry Jesus...and you're there
Lord...nobody cares...
For me....the way that you do

When peace floods my soul
Like I've never known
How could I Not....love you

On the turbulent sea
There's millions like me
Searching...like I used to do

You said....if I cared
Then your way I'd share
And How could I not....love you

How could I turn away
How could I never say
Thank you..for all that you've done

For laying your life down
Turning my life around
For God giving his only Son

For taking my place
And amazing grace
For healing my heart through and through

For.....forgiving my sins
And being my friend
How could I not.....love you

Old romantic

I take you by the hand, and lead you down to the bed,
'I love you baby', and you repeat the words I said,
I whisper in your ear, just what I'm gonna do,
Before this night is over, I'll make your dreams come true.

You didn't have to say it..  'cause I already knew,
But I'll give you what you want, for the trouble you've been through,
Oh my coo, coo, cha choo, forget stress as I caress you,
As I confess, that you're the best!  And it's just us two.

Time can fly..  I don't care.  I can't wait,
I hate being without you, and just lately I feel great!
Now we're cuddled up together.. forever isn't long,
Our passions grow strong.. I love what we've got going on.

  'Cause all day long I picture your face,
  Your eyes and your body, I could never replace.
  With our souls combined, we can sit back and unwind,
  And take it one day at a time.

I'm..  dreading the day, when you finally leave,
I'm a realist, it's not about what I believe,
But I'll survive, I'll live..  I won't die,
And no one will ever see the quiet tears that I cry.

However, that's the future..  and this is the now,
Forget the past, if you want, I'll show you how.
So hold on tight Girl, and go with the flow,
You've got a 1st class ticket, VIP, enjoy the show!

I won't ever stop, I won't ever go,
You know it sometimes feels like my heart is gonna blow!
You're the one, the only, great love of my life,
It's just a shame it had to cut me.. like a double edged knife.

Rebel Child

You are so young, so carefree
And I wonder sometimes: 
Why are you with me?
It is something I do not know

All I do know is:
That you are everything
But as much times as I have tried
You will not wear a promise ring

The people who have met you
Tell me that you are a preacher’s daughter
Bathed in the blood of the Lamb,
Baptized in muddy water

You were once an innocent little girl;
Your mother’s pride and joy
And your daddy’s whole world
But all that changed

When you started high school
You became so carefree and wild
But no matter what, I love you
And you will always be my rebel child

On An Airplane (at 18,000 feet)

patches of green, shades of blue,
cotton clouds floating down below,
soaring like angels dressed in white,
silently drifting from such a height.

looking-glass mirror of the blue sea
to where someday I'm longing to be;
lonely mountains like giants they are,
rising and trying to reach a distant star.

where am I heading, where am I going?
when will a restless soul stop roaming?
ask the cold wind or ask the trees,
ask the birds that sing, ask the bees.

the lazy river flows along the way,
a twisting snake like a long highway,
never tired in its journey to the sea,
to the home where it dreams to be.

my home is your soft arms, my love,
your tender lips are all I want to have;
a lake of joy, like a rainbow you are,
I am the earth and you are the star.

Evergreen


The tide surges
over binary laugh-lines.

Seattle, oh Seattle,
unless you are able
to find oxygen in conch shells
and survive in an underwater cottage,
it's high-time to teach your soul to swim.

The tide ebbs in and out,
allowing us to re-energize in-between takes.
But don't forget to practice your part.

Take 3, this is the scene:

a moonlight-key opened a treasure chest
filled with digital photos of submerged guilt and shame.
These waves are here to stay,
unable to douse the underworld burning in his beard.

Wolverhampton, do you remember
when he came as he was,
ready to entertain us
with a belly full of liquid-bogeymen?

Do they remember how the seahorses kissed
to the sound, to the sound?
The kiss lasted for 230 seconds, times three --

and again and again and again!

Seattle, oh Seattle,
your Evergreens sparkle with rubied feathers,
your road-signs are a bit cleaner now.
Hey, there's always going to be the contradiction
of mud and bleach in Aberdeen,
so there's no longer a reason 
to feel aqua seafoam shame.

There's no longer a reason
to feel aqua seafoam shame*

________________________________________________________

Author's notes: For this poem I used the cut-up technique,
cutting-apart and re-mixing specific stanzas of my poems: 
"ADDWDDMD"(written, September 2010), and, "Currents"(written, July 2010).

I use my own polished technique:
Instead of leaving the initial raw result of the 'cut'/scramble,
I switch words, and add words here and there to offer extra cohesion. 
This is most evident in the switching-around of place names(Seattle, Wolverhampton, 
Aberdeen). Had I left the place names as they initially 'fell', the poem would have 
made even less sense to some of the readers.
I also add punctuation and breaks; formulate stanzas.
I also allow repetition of certain words and some of the newly formed lines.

With my polished cut-up technique, I cut-up/scramble more words than I want 
used in total for the end result. 
I create an 'over-flow pool' of words to inject into the overall shifting of words.
For example, with this scrambled chunk of words:

with / chest / photos / filled / treasure / guilt / submerged,

I switch around the words, while pulling "of" and "and" from the over-flow pool,
and take "submerged" and "digital" from a chunk of scrambled words that 'fell' in 
an entirely different area of the mix.

I end-up with: "filled with digital photos of submerged guilt and shame."

That line triggered the idea to use three words which have been swimming around
inside of my head for years; to use the words in the closing lines of this poem. 
These three words are not from the original stanzas that I cut-up,
so this piece isn't technically 100%, a cut-up poem.

I was inspired by the cut-up technique contest which is currently running,
to attempt another one of these types of polished cut-up poems,
but since I incorporated three 'outside' words and polished the piece quite a lot,
I will not be entering this poem into the contest, because I wasn't willing to 
compromise my intent in order for the poem to fit the specifications of being a 
cut-up poem(100%) in its purest sense as defined by several sources.

StarDust

Crying in a dark corner 
You curse all that is lost 
World may seem to be empty 
But its void that you've crossed 
You feel love is elusive 
You are just a speck in the crowd 
I will be the answer 
To all your doubts 

How can a man not love you 
You are the brightest of all 
Your not alone beautiful 
I followed your fall 
You pointed towards the sky 
And I knew before you sang 
Your voice is a melody 
Though I cant understand 

The silver that lines your face 
Is losing its glow 
The world wants a martyr 
Its not yours to do so 
We are angels no more 
We are such a shame 
You will succumb to hate here 
Go back from whence you came 

Love is all that you need 
To reach the stars again 
I will give my heart to you 
Coz i know the pain 
The silver glows once more 
And with it our distance too 
My hand holds just StarDust 
Its all thats left of you

To My Foster Parents With Love

I came into your lives a lost and lonely child,
Full of anger and resentment,
Overwhelmed with fear and confusion.
Yet you took me into your home, your lives, and your hearts.
From the very beginning you tried to make me feel welcome and wanted.
Though I fought you each step of the way you never gave up on me.
Instead you patiently and lovingly took me under your wings,
protecting, guiding and shaping me.
Showing me love and understanding.
Giving freely and openly the praise and affection I so desperately needed.
All the while expecting nothing in return.

As days turned into years you were still there
Making me feel safe and secure,
treating me with respect and fairness,
pushing me to be the best I could be.
And still, there I was fighting you.
Oh, the pain and heartaches you endured at my hands.
Yet there you stood, firm and unwavering.
Never walking away, never giving up.
Always loving me no matter what the cost.

All these years later as I look at my own children
I realize just what you saw and still see when you look at me.
Your Daughter!

I love you.

If You Love Me

Two a.m. on a Tuesday
Got to go to work in four hours
Still lost in last night
Still not feeling right

You said you really cared
But you left me here alone
Still lost in last night
Still not feeling right

We spent the day together
And dined out alone
You said you really cared
But you didn’t say love

I parked the car along the sea wall
And we took a walk along the beach
You said you really cared
But you didn’t say love

So now I am alone
In a shallow mystery
Not sure if you loved me
Or you were setting me free

Yeah I am not sure if you love me
Or I should feel so damn lucky
And consider myself free…

Keyboard of my Heart

The Keyboard of My Heart
By

Stan Almendro

The Keyboard of my heart has no ivory keys to play
 Music comes from what I think, dream and what I say
A melody that people hear is my happy, sensitive heart
It is a song that will stay and never from me depart.

There are also no black keys in the keyboard of my heart
And you can in fact not tell the black keys from the white
No hands are found striking these keys that don’t exist
Yet the sweetness of the chords no heart can really resist

With no white or black keys in this keyboard of my heart
Where and how does the music begin to make a start?
No music sheet was written for this keyboard of my heart
                  Music that you hear gets your feet tapping to every part

No musician, grandmaster plays this keyboard of my soul
                  It sends forth a celestial joy to the weak and to the bold
The weak and frail are not excluded from this joyous tune
They need no physical energy to frolic from morn to noon

The bold and strong live in this music which never stops
It is not a piece of music bought in some corner shop
Because it’s not for sale the poor also to this music dance
Yes weak, bold both rich and poor all have an equal chance

No very expensive grand piano or master music hand
Is needed for the music seems is written in the sand
So as you see me frolic, dance to the music of the band
Ask that the keyboard of your heart be touched by the “Master's Hand."

Same Ol' Song

Girl, I'm gonna miss you when you're gone,
Everything right done went so wrong,
I guess it's over now, so...so long,
and it's time to be movin' on,

Yes, I'm gonna miss you when you're gone,
I'm really sorry things went wrong,
I wasn't where my heart belonged,
I quess it's over..now..I'll be movin' on,

We all hear the same ol' song,
Boose 'n' beer and things go wrong,
I held her near where you belonged,
Oh my dear!...I done did you wrong!

And I'm gonna miss you when you're gone,
I wasn't where my heart belonged,
Everything right done went so wrong,
and I'm gonna miss you when you're gone,
Yea, I'm gonna miss you when you're gone.

Honey Do Feeling

My baby's crazy about me,
Like I'm crazy about her,
Before we got hitched,
It caused quite a stir,

Now we're sure not sorry,
We stopped all the slurs,
And the truth of the story,
Is I belong to her,

And it's honey do this, honey do that,
But I get a kiss for this and that,
And she keeps a list for this and that,
Now I can't resist my honey doing that,

She keeps a honey do feeling,
In all ways with me......
She'll be my honey do dealing...
A kiss for me.

A star song

 Make me believe in stars,
even when the sky is full
I wonder who put them so far
leaving the nearby sky so dull.

Let’s cross the silver gate
entering in a playground,
let’s keep spinning until it is late
the carrousel round and round.

When we return to our home,
You wait for me on the bed 
Whispering dreamy: “Come, Come,
let’s pretend we just have wed!”

I will hold near your hand
and marvel how it was done,
I also saw stars crawling in the sand
but during the day, all stars were gone.

GHOST

Their love was pure as a gold
They were happy and free
They thought they will grow old
Together in a small house by the sea

He loved to hold her so tight
To feel her heart close to his
He loved to watch her asleep
To wake her up with a kiss

Disaster struck them one day
He was gone like a dream
She couldn't bare the pain
They always were a team

He came to see her once more
He missed her so very much
He would give anything
For her one gentle touch

Only tears on her face
He could touch the most
She didn't know he was there
Simply because he was a... Ghost

Refrain...

Ditto... ditto... ditto to you
Ditto...ditto... always love you
Please take my heart
Please take my soul
Ditto...ditto... I love you so
                                         ... DITTO

Only if spring sustains 
Flowers heal our pains
And grow up when love rains 
For no reasons

Back in the Days

Christmas was coming around  again I was so happy I could not wait to go to 
sleep and wake up in the morning, the tree smelled so good it was cut with our 
own hands and drug through the woods.
Finally" it was morning I went into the living room I had a rag doll, one candy 
cane stick ,one orange and a few nuts with my name on it under the tree.
My rag doll was so special it was an original made from my socks and buttons 
from an old shirt for the eyes so she could see how happy I was on Christmas.
We had biscuits and molasses with salt pork grease it was so good. the 
happiness that I felt lasted for a life time, and at no time with six sisters and one 
brother did I think we were poor. times has changed but I still remember, and 
appreciate back in the days.

I Don't Want To Know




If our story has an ending...I don't want to know... I shall put my hands up to my eyes, and turn my head away If goodbye words must be written, I don't want the world to know Please don't spread the word......If you care at all....what the ending said I cannot bear to know...... Let's pretend instead ..... I cannot bear to know Was I a fool to think you loved me before the ink was dry?... Was it just my fantasy........? What I always thought was meant forever...did it come with a goodbye? Was I blinded by the moonlight, and dazzled by a lie? Were we writing different stories, in our different worlds apart? Were you ripping empty pages, while I filled my own with heart? Was I a fool to let stars blind me, not to read between the lines? Was I lost in the dark........from the very start? Let us turn to chapter one again, and start it all again We can skip the end..........We'll begin again...we'll begin when love was new Where the pages lie unwritten, and the words are yet unsaid If goodbye words must be written, I don't want the world to know Please don't spread the word......If you care at all.....what the ending said If our story has an ending.....let us put it on the shelf If our story has an ending.....please keep it to yourself I can't bear to know......let's pretend instead ..... pretend it isn't so If our story has an ending...I don't want to know... I shall put my hands up to my eyes, and turn my head away

It Use To Be On CD

It use to be we treasured,
The little things that we'd do,
It use to be a pleasure,
Sharing words like "I love you."

We use to share our dreams,
Our love was so alive,
But now it only seems,
We've cast it all aside,

Yes, it use to be that you and me....
Use to care that way.....
And I can't believe...for the life of me.....
We're throwing it all away....

It use to be a pleasure,
The little things that we'd do,
It use to be we treasured,
Holding hands and "I love you."

We use to share our dreams,
Our love was so alive,
But now it only seems,
We've cast it all aside,

Now I can't believe....for the life of me....
We're throwing it all away....
When it use to be that you and me...
Use to care that way.....

It use to be we treasured.......
The little things that we'd do-o-o-o-o-o!!!!

Without You

"Without You" By M. Taha Effendi (Ballad) Every day without her I spend crying, praying there's always a smile on her face. i'm tired of hiding from her that i'm lying, i'm tired of hiding that i'm losing my grace. She called me last night to ask if i'm well. I lied,"i have a girlfriend now... I'm alright." she's unaware, actually i'm going through hell, for i still dream about her every single night. I still walk the streets alone, she doesn't know, every night i think of her with someone else. With every tear i shed, my love will only grow, can't she see that when i lost her, i really fell? but I'll never let her know that i'm hurt, I'll hide my face from her whenever i frown. and I'll fake a smile when it hurts me the most, because I don't want to cast her down. I'll tell her only what she wants to hear, just so that she won't feel so bad. I'll pretend to her that I do not care, because I don't want to make her sad. Every day without you I spend crying, but I still pray there's a smile on your face. and in my heart I sure feel like dying, because your memories I just cant erase. You'll hear from me everything that you need, just so that you won't feel so bad. I'll pretend to you that I do not bleed, because I dont want to make you sad.

Daybreak

I wake on the sand
Right near the beach
You have yet to awake
Far out of reach
And Daybreak has arrived
A beauty unlike any other
Comparable only to us, girl
And how we love each other

So I gaze up alone
Marveling up at the sky
The warmth of the sun
Drying my eyes
I'm reflecting on us
Oh how each other we trust
I'm just so happy we're together
And I think to myself,
Just as this sun, we'll last forever

Then returning to be with you
I lay again now
Place my hand gently
On your warm tender shoulder
While I think of our lives today, love
And how they'll be when we're older...
I know there'd be no other way
So "I Love You" I make sure I say
To you, each and everyday

No Good Morning Sunshine

I lie awake thinking of the agony of it all. 
A hold ripped into my heart. 
The pain of loss and what might have been. 
How can there be life without life.

My stomach rots with pain. 
Love lost because of honor before desire.
Oh God, what is to become of me now.

I fear not death! 
I have already died a death worse than death. 
In death the pain of life comes to it's end.

Then what is this death with pain. 
A death knowing there will be no,
Good Morning Sunshine...

Together.. We are one (Revised)

(Verse 1)
I’ve got this new feeling deep within
I hear a chorus of angels singing my name
There’s an energy rising from my heart
Look at my hands their starting to glow

(Bridge)
With a deep breath colors I now see
A message to stand proud stand tall
got this electrical current flowing through me 
my brothers and sisters take my hand

(Chorus)
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart

(Verse 2)
Time is here time is now
Spread your hands across the land
Reach out to your fellow man
Embrace the power of your inner light

(Bridge)
Old will feel young just like children
Its time to teach that anger is not the way
This program of control has got to go
New policy this is the age of a new light

(Chorus x2)
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart
Together.. We are one
Listen to the children peace and love in their heart

YOU MAKE ME CRAZY

Hello Avatar with a blurred smile
I've memorized your fuzzy style
But I'll still look at you for awhile

Falling for you came on real slow
Each work you penned, I got to know 
The girl inside, felt my feelings grow

Am I crazy
To think I know you by your pen
When everything else is still so hazy
Am I crazy
Then you write, oh.. you touch my soul 
You're the one in this whole soup bowl
You make me crazy

The world loves from the outside in
Controlled by our infatuation of skin
I guess that's how it's always been

But I've fallen hard from the inside out
Your pure heart is what I'm all about
So if ya feel a spark, don't put it out
 
Am I crazy
To think we could become true friends
When everything else is still so hazy
Am I crazy
That when you pen I feel your soul within 
And I believe in love at first write again
You make me crazy

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.

Four-Eyed Charmer

I wear a white buttoned shirt
And my friends call me four eyes
But I don't care, just slowly walk away
And give 'em my gang sign

Don't bother with my appearance
Cause I'm the king of the chess team
Most guys got brawns, when it comes to logic
I can win before you take a seat

And I'm a four-eyed charmer
But a real straight A lover
What girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Hold my bag on the boat when I'm sick at sea
I'll give this life a mighty heave
Confidence you wouldn't believe
Whet girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Give me oxygen when I forget to breathe

Some gits got British accents
To impress any American gal
I speak elvish and clenon
They got their mansion royale

Some guys eat snails a la mode
And only settle for the finest wine
I can foresee myself in Paris
Throwing tomatoes at the mimes

A true heart you'll discover
Under this four-eyed charmer
What girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Hold my bag on the boat when I'm sick at sea
And I'm taking a leap of faith
That could either destroy or save
What girl wouldn't wanna fall all over me
Give me oxygen when I forget to breathe

Now I finally got someone
A lovely gal to cheer me on
When I play videogames
All night to the crack of dawn

Now I finally got someone
Who loves to rub when
I get a burning lobster tan
On my mayonnaise skin

Now I finally got someone
Who thinks my wandering eye
Is actually kinds cute
At least now I'm not so shy

I am the geek with four eyes
A noble prince in disguise
With a girl who courageously fell for me
As the titanic sinks I'll be your Lenny
And I bet it all on a whim
Now I'm the one with everything
With a girl who courageously fell for me
Her smile augmented when I stood on one knee



NOTE: So I feel ridiculously silly now, but I already posted this one a long time ago... must have slipped my mind... oh well :/

Tropical Getaway

Carpooling in the Monday traffic jam,             
Wondering what we are and who I am.
Since we’ve already raised a family,              
Is there anything left just for you and me?
Seems each day is just like the one before.           
Exactly what have we both been working for?
So many years lost from nine to five...              
Making ends meet, but barely feeling alive.

I wanna find us some tropical getaway--        
Somewhere lost where the locals play;
With fishing boats and mango trees,                 
And spicy scents carried on the breeze.
I wanna find us some island Shangri-La—      
A quiet spot with no hoopla...
Some place where it’s easy to hide,                   
That can’t be found in a tourist guide. 

I wanna find us some tropical paradise             
Where nights are warm and folks are nice,
And green birds sing exotic melodies                
While monkeys play high in coconut trees 
We could lounge in that tropical paradise,         
As bonfires spark like fireflies;
Watch lovers dance while steel drums play        
Calypso tunes from dusk till day. 

I wanna hold you close on an empty beach,
With a full moon just out of reach.
We could sneak behind a big sand dune
And celebrate another honeymoon.
Let’s forget about all the noisy mobs,               
Grown-up kids, and annoying jobs,
And swing in a hammock made for two—         
And snuggle close,  just me and you. 

(Chorus) 
Bamboo torches and starry skies       
Will be mirrored in your big brown eyes.
We’ll dance away each endless night,              
Lost in love, with no dawn in sight.

He's the great I AM

some time ago
a lad so young
would sit in church 
and chew his gum
write silly notes
to the cute little girl 
sitting down from him

never listened to
what the preacher said 
this stoic place
felt oh so dead
the sound of hymns
made him dread
that every week
he had to go

now in high school
folks knew his name
sports and music
small town fame
full of himself
and out of control
serious car accident
barely survived the roll

a hospital bed
now he couldn't hide
when the preacher came
the boy about died
he skipped the sermon
instead took his hand
said God loved enough
to become a man

died on a cross
took the sinner's place
a simple invitation
to taste amazing grace
on that day the lad
bowed heart and knee
ask Jesus in 
that lost boy was me!

Jesus is now my all
absolute everything
the loftiest song
purpose for being
rock and fortress
yet innocent lamb
For every need..
He's the great I AM!

When I Rise

When I rise I am so thankful to God I can't believe my eyes
He has given me another day to live, it's not the same as yesterday and will never 
be like tomorrow.
What do I do with this new day?
Will I be grateful for the fresh air I am allowed to breath, will I enjoy all the 
beautiful trees, flowers, and the natural sea breeze in the air.
Will I look at this as nothing and take it all for granted.
When I rise and I am still alive I give thanks to God for allowing me to see 
another new day.
When you rise and are still alive don't  waist time complaining about life? live 
count your blessing and pray that you are still able to say when I rise!

Rain Song

You played me like a violin
I can't believe I fell again
But clouds revealed the moon, and I was taken
Your eyes were closed
Your words were spare
You ran your fingers through my hair
But from your whispered breath, dark lies were spoken,
  
The moon betrayed me, .......a storm is waking.......
Have you betrayed me?........my world is shaking.......

Those empty words that still resound
pound in my head and I have found
Your love was like a tunnel going nowhere -
I crossed a bridge
And took a risk, 
I fell right in,
But couldn't swim 
The drowning rush surrounds me like a river

I dived right in it........I can't deny it
I would survive it........to cry a river

You came to me without a plan
I should have known that it would end
The echo of the thunder tried to warn me

A distant voice
Inside my head
A cloud appeared with laden air
And pulled me where the heart's a frozen ember

I see the lightning......  I am frightened
I hear the plunder....  a distant thunder

I hear it now, the pouring rain
It beats against the window pane
And now the chill just sends a quiver through me

Storms only come
When I'm alone
Torrential songs are drowning me 
A broken heart can't stop the rain from coming in

When vows were spoken,     a sun was shining.......
But I heard thunder, ....       and you denied it

And truth came pouring down upon my head

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 !!!

THE PRINCESS OF MY DREAMS

Like a breath of fresh air
My cheek brushed by the aroma of her hair
Her shining eyes melted my soul
Listen to my heart beat!
It dances to  a new beat

She breezed past like a heaveny fairy
I walked behind like a transfixed devotee
She walked,  I walked
She stopped, I stopped
She turned around

To look at me
How can I
look deep in her eyes
I stumbled and fell
She flashed a priceless smile

Enough to set alight my life
Is she the princess of my dreams!
The angel may be out of sight
Her charm will never cease
To be out of my mind

                                             ... Suresh Iyer

Voice in the Night

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Healing words
Made from
Angel heart

Oh, her chocolate whisper
Warm convincing breeze
Oh, her breathy laughter
In the shadow of my need 

Don’t you hear the voice?
Save  you from despair
Don’t you hear the voice?
Sent by ghosts who care

Don’t you hear the voice?
Rises like a prayer
Come to rescue you
From your earthly snare

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope 
Kissed my tears away

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Now I dance
To a magic serenade

Don’t you hear the voice?
Memories of home
Don’t you hear the voice?
Pretty as a poem

Don’t you hear the voice?
Vivifies your soul
Bathes you in a pool 
Love you’ve never known

How do I thank
The voice in the night?
Call of hope
After the world turned dark

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller,
Take me, take me
To your bed

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head
Lady caller
Raise me, raise me
From the dead

Voice inside the darkness
Gets into my head

The other part of me

You are my world.
You are the axis in which my world turns.
Without you I can not revolve.
You put the light in my days,
And the stars in my night.
You are the passion that keeps my heart full.
The endless infatuation that fills my head.
The other half of my soul. 
My first. My last. My everything.

A Mans Worth

A Man’s Worth
By Nate Spears


I’ve never been god’s gift to the world
But I am a man
A man with a gift 
A man with a plan
A man of mistakes
But a man of honesty
A man with integrity
That’s the man inside of me. 

For what you believe in; stand for
Be the heart of your family
The flaming torch
Be the hand that feeds
Be the hand that heals
Be the hand that nurtures
Be the hand that kills

Be the hand that serves 
Be the hand that protects
Be one hand in your household
That demands respect; and is
Truly blessed
To have a beautiful family
Making you the whole of a man
Bringing a new meaning
To the soul of a man
With respect 
With honor
With courage
Be a symbol of depth
Making mankind reflects its intent
On this earth
As is in heaven
Amen.

YOUR KIND OF GIRL

It's a difficult thought, even kind of strange
If in a gender bender, I suddenly changed
But somehow let's say, I became the girl
It'd be like this, if I was giving Dave a whirl

I'd be..
Clever and sweet, so confidently secure
No manipulative games, intent wholly pure
I'd hold all your secrets, protect your heart
Believe your dreams from the very start

Whisper sweet nothings, about true bliss
Beat to the punch, when it comes to a kiss
I'd have a look, that says more than maybe
Then I'd lick my lips and watch you go crazy

You could hang with the guys, act like boys
Get all excited about you electronic toys
I'd wear your team jersey, be a fan true blue
Then after the game I'd make victory to you

Independent and strong, it'd be crystal clear
But I'd like "being us", so I'd want to be near
Free as the sun, but with a longing to please
In the heat of your day, I'd be a gentle breeze

I'd love us together, the song of our hearts
Harmony and melody, each knowing our parts
Mountains and valleys, high sky and blue seas
If I had to be a girl, your kind of girl I would be

CHRISTMAS TIME

It's CHRISTAMAS time again this year,can't believe it's all
ready here,haven't bought a single thing oh dear,i'm so far
behind.I like to get my shopping done,before the lines get
long in all the stores,i'll spend more than we can afford,but
hay it;s Christmas time.It's Christmas time again you see,let's
go pick out the perfect tree,is it leaning left or is it just me,oh
hun it looks just fine.We'll hang the tisles,string the lights,these
ornaments will take all night,it's alot of work but that's alright,
it's Christmas time.We'll eat to much and swear again,that come 
new year were gettin in,the best shape that we've ever been,but
we know we're lyin.So pass the pie and one more roll,and pass me
that remote control,oh looky here I love this show,it's Christmas time.
It's Christmas time who's at the door,i'm sure there's room for seven
more,we'll make some pallets on the floor,that will be just fine.The 
turkey's done pull up a chair,grab a hand let's say a prayer,for all those
soldiers over there,you know it's Christmas time.We'll wrap the gifts
in green and red,you kids get back up in your bed,or Santa won't come
in his sled,he"ll just fly right by,then you'll wake up in an hour or two,to
mommy look this one's for you,I love it hun I really do,it's Christmas time.
It's Christmas time again you know,it hit me just an hour ago,it ain't
about the mistle toe, let's keep that in mind.It's about the star that led the 
way,the baby child born that day.it's cause of him we all say,
IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME!

Giving In To The Gray

Overwhelmed with fear I whispered into the rain
Disarming defenses, Giving in to the gray 
Tearing down all of my shelter within my hollowed decay
While this echoing silence gave every tear drop a name
They begin filling the voids with mundane hopes for a change
Heaven will save me from this hell and blue skies will reign
Lazily lay in green grass watching clouds drift away
It's all but a deflated dream now that the colors have changed
My thoughts have become restless noise of uncertainties rearranged
Damning all of my emotions, lies decorated with grace
Now I stand with a hardened heart in the sobering autumn rain 
I'm disarmed and defenseless, Giving in to the gray

On Clouds' Garage

His engine's raw horsepower screams
the peril vests this morn's adage,
the tilt on asphalt seems extreme,
his bike's tuned up on clouds' garage.

He rides upon the slopes'  domains
man's sacred deed in cold embrace,
The engine bellows on octanes,
engaging on the crags of Thrace.

The Metzelers on wet rise hold,
titanic torque and skill's finesse,
on borderlines and Thracian wold,
in Dainese, the bold egress.

The metal knee cups spark on ground,
the snow flakes melt on full face Shoei,
steep slopes resend untamed the sound,
and thousand cubic mean strings play!

The maid of Thrace, and Strymon God,
on borderlines, bestows the badge,
amid the mists archaic bode,
his bike's tuned up on clouds' garage.

And there she waits, betrothal rain,
the steel block hollers in thin air,
wet asphalt tracks - divine refrain,
as snow flakes lace the Thracian fare.
.
The maid of Thrace, and Strymon God,
on borderlines, bestows the badge,
amid the mists archaic bode,
his bike's tuned up on clouds' garage.
.
His engine's raw horsepower screams
gray skies become his morn adage,
the tilt on asphalt seems extreme,
his bike's tuned up on clouds' garage.

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?

Push Up

i could sit here. day in and day out
thinking of the most proper way
to let the ink in the pen spill out
but as of late im feeling prehistoric 
so much weight on my shoulders 
and i dont know where to go
resuscitate my soul
look back up and head to the goal

so much evil around. i feel like the devils workin double shifts just to bring me down.
on the road to redemption
you can take a seat up in the front section
just so you can feel the emotions
in this electric notion

i've done a lot of things that hide the halo
let it all collaborate when i medicate 
now look at me, mind workin like plato
formulate a new path to take so i can
maneuver through all the mistakes 
we all know we cant change what we've already made
but we can change the next thing we create
startin to sound like a serenity prayer
5 steps till im thirty
and the twenty four before i was never a player
found out when the lights came back on im strictly a lover
its the strongest drink for your soul, when its thirsty
so careful how much you intake or be left hungover
even worse be the one she ran over

i dont mean to come off like im too deep
but the obstacles made there way through just to scrape through
and leave me suffocating
just for me to re-invent a new way to breathe, re-decorating

is your life so complicated 
you rather wet up your pillows and revoke from the life you live
just think of your kids mourning 
theyll never see that pretty face in the morning any more
cheer your self up
you got a lot to live for
your a gem and im that friend
trynna appraise the value 
that you dont see inside of you


just another day for him
goin about
searchin wonderin what his purpose is
running in circles 
till he found a way through all the turbulence

How Beautiful My Love

The sound of your voice made me shake inside
Your mouth never opened yet my ears heard your words
You reached out and touched me without using your arms
As I looked upon your lips I was kissed
My mind was open and shut by your very present
I was deeply moved 


How Beautiful My Love 


Dedicated to my wonderful husband  Yalma for Valentine"s Day

My Fire

I will be a sudden silence
to calm your burning soul,
 and quiet the words.
Lay down and let thoughts sleep,
escape to a place that accepts you with flaws,
Stand with me there, and be one with me.
Awake from sadness and shout!
Laugh without control!
cry for joy!
I will hold you and never let you go.

I saw her standing there

While sitting in the Park,
I have great lark,
And became cleaner air,
When I saw her standing there.

And all the time without you, 
I feel very very  blue,
Oh, changed world,
When I saw her standing there.

I Wish You Were Here

I wish you were here with me each day
when the birds  announce the arrival of dawn
I wish you were here with me at night
when the stars twinkle and moon shines through
There has never been a time you were not part of my life
My heart feels empty  when your not here  by my side
Without you here with me my soul  knows  no rest
It's solemn in the morning and throughout each passing day
I miss you more when daylight slowly fades away. 
     
I appreciate the things that you do more than you know
We need each other like springtime blooms, that grow
In the rain and in the sunshine, all day long.
We've laughed and cried together,through good & bad times
Sometimes now while your away, I get so overwhelmed
It gives me great comfort in knowing this agony will pass
One thought that appeases me, is what I know for sure
You'll take me in your loving arms and I could not ask for more.


I know that even though you are away from me for now
Our love still endures  brightly though from afar.
Two hearts bound together, that can't be pulled apart
The journeys we take in our lives, forever to last
Can't be erased just by you're going over there and my love
When you return back to me again one day soon
We'll enjoy lovely sunrises and sunsets once more
So  come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned.
Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings,
Forever, in Never Never Land."

How Can I Prove My Love to You?

My heart is striving,
My dreams are 
bright,
I am so you loving,
You are my light.
Everything seems 
empty
Without your sight,
You give strength 
to me
And make my way 
to fly.
***
How can I prove 
my love to you?
What have I to do 
more?
How can I make 
you to be sure
That my heart for 
you is open door?
***
I can show you 
the brightest star,
It is called by your 
name,
And when we be 
so far apart,
It will show me 
your mild flame.
This,means my love 
to you,
And no borders will 
stop me,
Every day begins 
anew,
Just my love is 
fairy deep.
***
How can I prove 
my love to you?
What have I to do 
more?
How can I make 
you to be sure
That my heart for 
you is open door?

A Heart Loves Forever

Some hearts fall in love when they're young
Some only fall in love in songs
But mine fell in love with yours forever
It fell in love forever

Mmmm…

You said you don’t love me anymore 
I get it, but there’s something I know for sure
My heart doesn't believe my mind
It needs to be near you
It’s been a long time

After hearing your words, I lost more than a day
Asking for grace, I prayed it’d be ok
I sit here, just looking above
What we had is what I’m thinking of…

Some hearts fall in love when they're young
Some only fall in love in songs
But mine fell in love with yours forever
It fell in love forever

Mmmm…

Some hearts keep love longer
My feelings for you only get stronger
All these years we’ve been side by side 
And it’s only now that I can see the light

Even as our love fades
I don’t agree that it makes it ok
Cause a heart loves on and on
It’s a love unbounded and strong
I can’t get past how I love you baby
I need to move on but I’m going crazy

Some hearts fall in love when they're young
Some only fall in love in songs
But mine fell in love with yours forever
It fell in love forever, mmmm.

I’ve been wishing and praying, for some luck
But now I can see that you’ve had enough

When a mind tells a heart, love is over
It can’t see the truth cause a heart loves forever

I promise you babe, I’ll love you forever. Mmmm…

My heart fell for yours forever

Your Hand In Mine

Your hand in mine 
Is all that I could see
Why did I fill the time
With my insecurities

Your hand in mine
Made me over think
you gave me the signs
But all I did was blink

Your Hand in Mine
It seems so steep
Yet Im about to climb
Down to where our lips meet

Your Hand In Mine
As we go, into the unkown
Your heart is mine
As our love is being sown

Your Hand In Mine
Into battles we will lose
 The road will be blind
Either way we choose

Your Hand In Mine
The war will be won
 Crossing the end line
 Bright as the sun
With Your Hand In Mine

Hot Liquid Love

hot liquid love, 
pouring down from the skies,
splashing into your gorgeous, star speckled eyes,
my heart blows wide open,
and cries out in delight, 
the light of you blinding, 
so warm and so bright,
I'm a heavenly feather, 
floating high, and so free,
drowning deep in your heart, 
love's sweet ecstasy.

A Confession to Tell

I have a confession to tell
and I don't know where to start.
It is something I have hidden
for many years.
Something I wouldn't let myself have.
I've had many fears about this.
Fear you would reject me.
Fear of disappointing you,
of hurting you in some way.
I denied this for so long,
it became the norm.
I tortured my soul over it,
for so many years.
I want you both to know
how much I love you
and I would never do anything
to intentionally hurt you.
You both gave me so much
even when we didn't have much.
You both did a great job raising me
and I think I turned out okay.
You taught me good life lessons,
a hard work ethic, honesty, and loyalty.
Up until now, I have led my life
the way I did for fear
you would disapprove of me and
that would be too much for me to bear.
I then realized, I wasn't truly happy.
I wasn't being me.
During this time, I met someone,
who made me very happy.
They saw the real me hiding inside
and loved me for it.
I now know true happiness.
I have debated and contemplated
in my mind of how to tell you both.
It is something I could
never imagine doing before.
I didn't know how to tell you
no matter how much I wanted to.
I want you to know
that you did nothing wrong.
I love you both very much.
Please don't think any less of me
because of this, but...
Mom, Dad, I'm gay.

Stand on your own two feet

What will you do when you lose everything you own
How will you feel when you lose everything you once called home

Don't you know
They'll stab you through the heart
They'll bring you to your knees
They won't let you go
Until you lose your faith
So stand up to the ground
Don't let them bring you down
Put your faith in God
Don't let them bring you down

Are you prepared to lose your friends, your family
Are you willing to walk the streets alone
Do you have faith in God above
Do you know what it truly means to fall in love

So
Stand on your own two feet
Hold on to what is true
This world is a scary place
But God has blessed us with love we can't replace

Don't you know
They'll stab you through the heart
They'll bring you to your knees 
They won't let you go
Until you lose your faith
So stand up to the ground
Don't let them bring you down
Put your faith in God
Don't let them bring you down

When these troubles come
Please my friend
Don't give into the fear of death
When these troubles come
Please my friend
Hold on to your faith
Never lose what is true to you

So 
Stand on your own two feet
Hold on to what is true
This world is a scary place
But God has blessed us with love we can't replace

What will you do when you lose everything you own
How will you feel when you lose everything you once called home

Behind My Words

                                         I'm picking paper from the floor...
                                             Missing pages out my door...
                                             I never really told the truth...
                                      We were two in one that made a group...
                                          It was easier to mold my words...
                                   In a time where honesty was never heard...
                          
                                           I'm picking paper from the floor...

                                              I seldom ever told the truth..
                                          You had me falling through a hoop...
                                           You never looked behind my lines... 
                                          So we melted in two seperate sky's...

A Cry out for "Ma"Ma

I cry out for all the Mother's in the world that are not being treated right, 
I know how lonely and painful it is not to feel loved.
When you have brought a child into this world and they can't find the time to call 
and say I love you. 
Mother's don't ask for much you "see" they just want to hear a voice, receive
a card that they keep forever and a memory they can hold on to.
I think a Mother deserves much more than that, "but" if you can't do anything else 
make sure you show her love.

A cry out for "Ma "Ma

Remember if you are not showing her anything now, when she is gone you might
Cry out for "Ma "Ma but it will be to late, it's hard to show someone something 
when they are not around.

HERE I LOVE YOU

in my foolish quest for scrambled words, your inspiration becomes a heady sensation carrying me gently from the troubled traffic of my desecrated hours, as if i were entering under the skins of our candle lights: bringing me to embers of moments terribly free, like you.. and there, we become weightless on our open map---the meridians and continents passing through the mists of time and space, oh how my lips and this my striped soul adore you: wandering effortlessly on the terraces of our own love, war and peace. ~ often, at daytime, at night call when stars seem to cover their cherubic faces and i feel the throb of my faltering heart, your company i embrace, telling me how to live...as our sheets grasp in surrender; my tender moans start to bleed... then i become one with your skin, bones, and hands: through sips of wine and tea, i have to say today and after: ~” Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain. I love you still among these cold things…” ~ i feel i am everywhere; i think of how many i can be with our candles and songs. ........ *excepts from Pablo Neruda’s “ Here I Love You” * please allow use of small caps ........ .. .........

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
