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)

Perpetual Feelings

Wherever I may be,in the front porch,or in my back garden,reading a 
book,or for a walk on the powdered toffee milk sands, picking pebbles on 
the beach,gazing with my caramel eyes in the vast blue serene seas,I 
shall remember you,a gentle soft whisper in the wafting wind breeze,
Wherever you may be,scenting the morning aroma of fresh dark 
coffee beans,gardening,planting tomato seeds,or lying in your balcony 
of dreams,You shall remember me,a fresh wild daisy sleeping on a 
hammock of green velvet leaves.In seperate paths,In each other's 
absence,I will think of you,and you will think of me,In distant paths we 
lose each other,yet lives the memory.The memory of when we 
hugged,when we touched the richest soil and ripest fruit,the memory of 
when we loved.

Rebirth

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All that remains,
Is to be reborn...

All on Me

All on Me

My childhood is sketchy too many
Holes 
Yet as those holes fill in
I do not like what I see
So many secrets 
So much pain
My innocence was lost
No wonder I never acted like a child
Still I feel like it was 

All on Me

Be strong, be brave 
Be silent 
Never tell a soul
No one will understand
This love we share
And so it went 

All on Me

Even now as I remember 
Each awful moment 
I wonder what I could have done
To avoid it all together
I wonder what would have happened 
If I had spoke up
However all the what ifs in the world
Will never change the fact that it is 

All on Me

Sometimes I feel like the 
Pain is going to last forever
I am so scared that the glimpse of happiness I once had 
Is all I will ever see
Yet I won’t give up and
I won’t give in
Because if I do then he will win
Then it will be

All on Me 

Instead of 

All on Him

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

Beyond The Arc

It was like a free throw 
from the three-point line.
I had all kinds of space and time;
It was a bank shot right off the board,
Then through the rim and net;
I scored.

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

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.

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.

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!

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

ABSENT


An anniversary picture reaches for my hand dusting his charm reflected from window’s ray, his smile buoyant as air more clear than any sun recalling how my instinct felt he was the only one. We promised to link our lifetime eternal, and yet, in a click of time, he fell drained by some incurable strain hazing his memory; forgetting the warm love that knitted our arms… I cringe; dear life ,sanctify us from harm I pray his eyes reaching out, though living in another realm and this varnished portrait I now hold with tears cannot fade, cannot erase his smile bursting my veins. Here, in a room with cinders as coffee tunes, my flesh, thin flesh grows hungry, a bit angry about his world unknown to him and me : a jungle tested by stillness or steel… he remembers nothing of moments brewed in simple joys and discoveries, our bodies once locked on subways and parks, tongues livid with laughter popping shrieks darting on tall trees,giggling, giggling. i freeze... My black coffee freezes at the damn thought of other human arms embracing tight, not alone. I cling to my beloved, wishing I could give half of my mind to fill a space of his dementia. i close the door gazing at him, chair-bound…
i am absent today.

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

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

Memories Beyond The Door

Talking to him was like a high
Then I'd crash and burn with a cry
I'd eat you, breathe, and sleep
But the darkened memory of you I keep
The memory of you is seared in my mind
And peace I cannot find
Even now, after all this time
The burden of it is mine
It was a dangerous rush
And for a while, I'd dare to touch
And yet I kept coming back
Because I thought it was something I lack
My love for him was raw, real,
And unlike anything I thought I could feel
I was addicted and out of control
Couldn't get out, even when I wanted to fold
Going at high velocity, no surprise I fell when it ended, so abruptly
Like a broken bone it's mending, but will never be the same
The pain will go too, Till all I have left...
Is the memory of you

First Hello, Last Good Bye

When I first meet you it was hard to say hello
Over the years we had great memories
These memories will be in my heart forever

The day I heard you died it brought tears to my eyes
I did not get a chance to say good bye to you
Now you are gone but not forgotten

You are now in a better place
A place where you can live in peace
I want to see you again someday

This day for me is very sad
I know deep in my heart I have to let you go
It is hard for me to say goodbye

It's Not Over

Don’t say it’s all over (cause it’s not)
“Sorry” won’t cover it…so don’t go on your knees and pray for my forgiveness 
Oh baby…don’t listen to the commotion…I’m done taking cover (it’s all for naught)
I’m plummeting in slow motion…into the remorseful pit…I’m plummeting in my nightmare’s abyss

I want to carry you through the night… 
I’m swimming in the ocean of my tears… 
My sodden wings lost its ability of flight…
You've been swimming in your distress for years… 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

I want to remind you to fight the good fight…
My misery pools are brewing inside of my head…
I’m backing away from the light & exploring the night… 
You’re giving in to sleep and I’m wide awake on my bed 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we’re breaking bit by bit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to discover 

Please don’t tell me…oh, don’t tell me…darling!
You’re giving up today… (I beg you to stay, despite your inner pain) 
I’m scared I might erupt – it could be quite startling!
Someday, things will change for the better… (Don’t turn the wrong lane)
I’m waiting for that day to arrive – perhaps it will wash away our dismay…

I promise you a tranquil reality 
I want to stray with you tonight 
I still have hope that He’ll set us free
I was wondering if you could stay the night
Maybe the Lord could grant us 
Pure, incredible delight 

Shut up! Don’t say it...
Don’t even think of it (don’t even ponder it)
Hey! Don’t say it’s all over…though we've plunged into our own pit 
‘Cause there’s more treasure to gather…

Your Special Day

(Dedicated to Danielle Bryant)

It's your special day
And I have so much to say.
Oh that time will let me,
There are thousands of things to make you see:

The happy times,
Lengthening with the clock's chimes;
The beautiful talks we exchanged,
Never believing there could be a change;

The midnight conversations,
Smiles on our faces our only compensation;
Our dreams and hopes,
The only reason we could cope.

Those moments we spent together
Are memories I'll cherish forever;
Memories I can look at and smile,
Knowing they are reasons to aim high.

Oh if I could do more than just words
And not pull memory chords!
It's your special day
And my own very special way
Of wishing a happy birthday
To a friend who just walked away.


Details | Lyric | |

My Message To You

Before I lay me down tonight,
There's something I'd like to say.
I hope these words come out right,
And my message as bright as day.

I know you really did feel love's light,
And I apologize with this poem I write.

So it's best if I take flight,
Far from your heart and go away.
If I'm unforgiven, it's alright;
I pray you find hope instead of dismay.

Remembering those days

Remembering those days

I’m remembering those days
That I’d be there on that stage
Blowing a storm on the old blues harp
Oh man, I used to rage
Some said that I was the best
And I loved that ego boost
So I would wail those blues notes out
All hanging kind of loose.

The folk would come and buy me drinks
And praise me up a bit
And I would smoke the wacky baccy
Oh man, I really loved it
And then I’ get so bloody soulful
I’d forget just where I was
My eyes all closed my body swaying
Like a man completely lost.

Sometimes I’d open up my eyes
And folk were standing there
All their dancing stopped by me
With people everywhere
Just watching me the way I played
Entrancement on their dials
Then afterwards they’d buy me beer
And everyone was smiles.

But then I’d get stuck in the booze
And my head would start to spin
And with my big, loud cockney mouth
I’d raise a lot of din
Always got myself in trouble
Cause boy I loved me grog
I guess I’ve settled down a bit
Life’s really tamed this dog.

F Bomb

“F Bomb”
By Nate Spears

I got the heart of a man name Malcolm
The visions of Martin Luther
The tongue of Emmett Till
The brains of Medgar Evers

Can I get a window seat
Away from defeat
Can I get park for the kids to play
Next to the spot
Where Rosa refused her seat

Langston in my pen
Proud, young, and free
Handsome and intelligent
The government targets me
First,
In a second
My history is a blessing
The court system in racist
Society shows the traces.

Memories Washed With Tears

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

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

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

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

My Wishes are Simple





My Wishes are Simple


My wishes are simple,
my desires few,

to gaze upon an ocean,
and marvel at a solitary drop of dew.



My wishes are simple,
my dreams not too grand,

to feel the waves teasing my tired feet,
with no footprints left in the cool, wet sand.



My wishes are simple,
my thoughts serenely gentle, calm,

my heart resting beneath a swaying palm,

healing my being, caressed by nature's soothing balm.

Summertime Re-Lyric

Summertime…and the livin’ is easy,                                                
Flowers growin’ and the sun’s sittin’ high.                                    
Your Daddy’s rich and your Momma’s so good lookin’;               
So hush, pretty baby…you got no reason to cry. 

One of these days, you’re gonna rise up smilin’.
Take a look around and think you’ve got it all.
You’ve got your Momma’s looks, all your Daddy’s money,
And all the boys in town are at your beck and call.

Summertime…and the livin’ is so easy,
Laughin’, singin’, havin’ so much fun.
No time to stop and think about your future
And what life will bring when your Summer’s  done.

‘Cause Summertime, it don’t last forever.
Breezes cool and the leaves begin to fall;
And in your quiet moments, you sit and wonder
How you've come so far, but have no love at all.

Yes, Summertime…and the livin’ was so easy; 
Ain’t it sad how fast the good times fly; 
And now your Momma’s looks and all your Daddy’s money
Another sweet, warm Summer’s day they cannot buy.

In The Rain

Written June 6, 2013


The preacher read the gospel
And we sank into our tears
Tearing down the curtain
We've been behind for all these years

A baby leaves its mother
An angel drops its wings
Leave me bound against the wall
Dangling by a string

Sitting by the window
Hoping she'll remember me
Sitting by the window
Contemplating memories

Resolve your inhibitions
And you'll find me in the garden
Where the flowers drink champagne
And God is in the rain


Details | Lyric | |

Last time we met

Last time we met
we both felt
it might be the last time we do

We tried to keep it perfect
so that, this special last memory
will forever glow

Last time we met
I kept looking at your eyes
as I believe that in last times,
the hidden emotions must rise

your last smile
and your last kiss
became the first things
I now certainly miss

Yellow Moon

She watched as the earth fell asleep

Waited for the yellow moon

soft kisses of unfaithful wind..

Images..Images on her head

Nostalgic memory of a forgotten love

Flashes of things she tried to forget..

Her eyes caught the reflection of the moon

locked inside the rain on her cheek..

She was standing alone..

Her grieving heart sought

solace from the moon

She petitioned the stars

Where is he this very night?

Cruel..oh so cruel..

Beneath the silence of the sky

she bowed her head and cried..

In your memory

Thank you for the beautiful memory
you left on my mind
you are not dead
 but you are not here,

to me you are gone,
cos i cant feel you the way i used to,
everything you used to do are left untouched
the space you ocupied is empty,

our yesterday is fading away like the rainbow
so beautiful but so short,
how can i forget the endless yesterday?
when you are here with me.


in loving memory of my sister (you are not an angel but you did what an angel can do,you fly to heaven.)

Eyes and Oceans

Whoever said 
open eyes betray emotion
never knew them
closed.

For, love is
an ocean 'til the rivers
feeding it give up the
ghost.

I stand huddled
at this puddle, puzzled,
foot nuzzling the
coast.

No ghost or
god of old pages boasted
could sing these hollow
notes.

Where Wild Violets Grow

Where Wild Violets Grow

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


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


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


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


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

A Memory to Treasure

Light emerged from a place not so far
A scene displayed beneath its roof’s tar…



“The sun entered through the window sill
Brightening the room as it filled in the still
A granddaughter sat on her grandfather’s bed
As he lay down on his back
His lips moved in unison
As his tongue played a tune…
Of his voice that was music to her ears…”



The clock ticked gently
Yet, time passed quickly…



“His granddaughter’s eyes gazed at him intently
As she listened to the one story she asked of him to say…
A story, young kids adore listening to…
Where Little Red Riding Hood hopped into the woods…
She always asked that story to be told…
No matter what was on hold…”



His granddaughter had her golden hair tied back,
As she sat quietly beside her grandfather’s hand 
His warm tune engulfed her with safety,
As she sat there: imagination on display…

One day, that special began to slip away
As his tune was never heard again…
And all that’s left in the granddaughter’s mind...
Is a memory to hold onto...
 A memory to treasure…
A memory of a young child with golden hair
Looking at her grandfather so intently 
Listening to Little Ridding Hood being played
By her grandfather’s warming tunes
While he was lying down: resting on his bed…


May you rest in peace LOVED ONE
I Love You Grandpa…

Remember December

I still remember that December 
All fresh in my mind
Too blind to see the signs
As the days would fly by

You made me feel special
For once in my life
Wasn't looking for anyone, no
I was way too shy
You came along and made me feel
Things I never knew
I'd take back the memories
But then it'd take the good ones too

Cause I still remember that December
When everything went down
And inside all I, 
Wore was a permanent frown
That old me couldn't be found

I wasn't that pretty
Could hardly call me cute
I used to get teased, yeah
And those words would take root
But you got me back on my feet
And said they weren't true
Ain't it funny when I fell again
The person who pushed was you

Cause I still remember that December
When everyything went down
And inside all I, wore was a permanent frown
That old me couldn't be found

I was broken, lost, and confused
Felt so utterly used
And if you opened me up you'd just see a bruise
Cause together I thought we'd never lose
With you I was so alive
During those days all I'd do was cry
And soon I realized I wouldn't die
Wondering to myself why

Cause I still remember that December
How long it took
To let go of that anger
And every day
I just got stronger
But I still remember that December
I still remember that December
Remember that December

Mask

I got too much emotion, too much pain.
I try to stay strong to keep myself sane.
I put on a mask with a fake smile and lie,
I'm wearing a "stay strong" disguise.
Pent up aggression, pent up sorrow,
How do i make it and see tomorrow?
I have so many secrets and burdens,
they're under the surface and hidden.
I dont know what to do anymore,
I dont know what to believe.
i cant live this battle this war,
this self hatred.... these lies I've made for me.
Pent up aggression, pent up sorrow,
How do i make it and see tomorrow?
I have so many secrets and burdens,
they're under the surface and hidden.
My whole world just spins round and round.
I put it behind me, but it comes back and bites me.
I'm fallin down,yet my past just haunts me.
Memories are burned in my head,
I dont want to remember this,... again.
I got too much emotion, too much pain.
I try to stay strong to keep myself sane.
I put on a mask with a fake smile and lie,
I'm wearing a "stay strong" disguise.
I dont know what to do anymore,
I dont know what to believe.
i cant live this battle this war,
this self hatred.... these lies I've made for me.

Last page, End of story, close the book and don?t look back

As I purge my mind of all the memories bits and pieces that still infuriate me
I remember being on the phone with her in our last conversation
and in the background I could hear what her new boy friend was saying
Threatening to leave and reminding her about the things I?d done  

Then you claimed I had not changed 
You said I was still very angry
I said under the circumstances how would you feel
If the only love you knew was being decided upon a moments notice

No more chasing
No more memories 
No more wishing you?d come back
No more you, no more me
Last page, End of story, close the book and don?t look back

Then suddenly another memory a psychic gave your mom advice  
She said you were going to have to choose between two lovers
But that moment in time had no rhyme and we just laughed it off 
But as I reminded her of that time I could hear fear through a fateful sigh 

then suddenly everything in my mind began to flicker
Like a candle blowing in the wind
My mind my soul prepared to let go
Like an addiction that feeds off the regret

No more chasing
No more memories 
No more wishing you?d come back
No more you, no more me
Last page, End of story, close the book and don?t look back

Another reel of my memory plays
Like sitting in a dark room with a tv on and remote in hand 
Skipping through the channels
And watching each clip

She said I have to call you back 
but I already knew what the answer would be
It was in her voice when that moment became a reality.
She buckled under pressure and I was out of the picture
 
No more chasing
No more memories 
No more wishing you?d come back
No more you, no more me
Last page, End of story, close the book and don?t look back

Our break up was resentful
Unfortunately it was all based on a lie
And for six years she hated me
However she never really knew the truth why

And as one last image begins to float away like a balloon
I see the engagement ring and the party
I see what could have been, should?ve been but is not going to happen
I see you on face book with two kids and an illegitimate husband 

No more chasing
No more memories 
No more wishing you?d come back
No more you, no more me
Last page, End of story, close the book and don?t look back

Best Thing I Ever Had

When I get to Louisiana, 
just a mile or more to go.
Yes, when I get to Louisiana, 
just a mile or more to go, 
Lord, you know i'll be alright
once I hit that station floor.

They say he's in New Orleans 
doing his best to survive.
They say he's in New Orleans 
doing his best to survive.
I'll be in New Orleans just
as it's turning five, 

That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
Lord knows when I see him it will
make my heart feel glad.

When we're pulling in the station, 
Lord I'll be headed for that door.
Yes, when we're pulling in the station 
I'll be headed for that door.
You know I just can't wait until 
I hit that station floor.

That man was the best thing-
yes, best thing I ever had.
That man was the best thing-
yes best thing I ever had.
Lord knows when I see him it will 
make my heart feel glad.

celsius

Fallen snow will remind of me/ it is snowing ... 
Slowly as in the dream/ 
Boy word-beads/ with signs on his spine/ 
He kisses fine/ 
Your eyelids /

And it snows ... It snows /so slow/
It does/ and you're thinking of me/ 
'Coz it's warm/ it's better to stay in warmth/ 
Waiting for summer dim/ 
It is snowing/ slowly like in the dream/ 
Flakes/ go round/ playing the music theme/ 
You've been looking for rescue/ 
You searched in wine/ 
But it's in me/ 
all the rescues are mine/ 
It is snowing/ the snow is fluffy and white/ 
If you see darkness/ I'm deaf and blind/ 
there's the cast of time/ on the arm/ 
But I discern the light/ 
Dreams/ upon your eyelids tips/ 
Prepare you for winter drowse/ 
And it snows/ 

Fallen snow/ will remind of spring /
it will crumble and crackle in vain/ 
It will snow / fluffy /white/ and slow/ 
And you'll become whole/

When you felt alone

There was a time you felt alone, 
A time you thought the world had ended and nobody will find you 
A time when the dark cloud had fallen to your head and no light could illuminate your path, 
When the rivers over flowed their banks and ruptured that cute smile of yours and left you wry for a moment 
You prayed for better days with a bitter voice 
Hoping to see light when all that appeared was a blurred void 
For a moment there was silence during your presence 
Your heart stopped from thudding like a gong 
Your tears stuck on replay like a song 
Nobody could see what you where going thru due to failure of realizing a wrong 
Death being your obsession 
You surely felt no happiness for a while in your possession 
As feeling alone was one of your greatest depressions 
'Harsh the pain' your mind could say but your heart couldn't heal from that severe collapse 
You needed someone to give you props 
Someone to caresses u, and someone to wipe your tear drops 
Someone who won't point out at your wrongs, but try to correct your faults 
Someone who would say, 'thru thick and thin I will be there for you till your heartache stops' 
But all you had was a memory 
A memory that linked you to the past 
The past when your world had ended 
How it ended something you never wanted to remember 
A remembrance that made u feel alone 
Alone because of loosing yourself to the world 
The world that brought misery to your life 
A life that was better with no love

For Bruce Springsteen

for bruce springsteen...


it was a rain-swept monsoon day

way back then, so many moons away

when i felt the music strumming in my veins

setting me free like a runaway horse without any reins

you sang of simple truths, 

your verse spoke to people just like me

in my lonely, wasted, and desolately quiet night

as you screamed out tragic human wrongs, and of everyone's plight

'bobby jean' spoke to me

of that girl down the street

glimpses of whom, we as innocents would furtively meet

and 'the river' that flowed through my ever-barren heart

led me down further roads of thunder

when slowly i finally learnt that the hardest part was fighting on

and never to surrender

to the hard-luck dreams that were born to run

while i danced in the dark 

with memories vivid and stark

even as i whined like that dog who for forever lost his howling bark

and then a 'human touch' came along

and 'better days' seemed real, not just words in a song

and still you sang and swayed and spoke straight into my unseeing eyes

as gardens of secrets were opened, and as your fist punched the skies

in an anger that i too felt and in whose cauldron i too burned

as we saw murder get incorporated, while on its wobbly axis, our fragile world apathetically turned

and then suddenly i was told that i was all grown up

working on a highway of scattered ideals

and absolving myself by sprinkling some coins in a waiting cup

well, after all these years of walking along so many a thorny road

with an armour of your verse covering me, even as i hear them taunt me and even as they continue to goad

but now i can feel myself fading away, into the bleakness of this coming night

just like the ghost of that old tom joad...

TORN - Song Lyrics

TORN (song Lyrics)

A part of me wants to leave you alone
A part of me wants for you to come home
A part of me says I'm living a lie
And that I'm better off without you.

A part of me says to think it through
A part of me says I'm over you
A part of me wants to say goodbye
A part of me is asking why?

A part of me wants to leave
But a part of me wants to be here with you
And every time I think we're over and done
You do something to get me back loving you
And you got me just torn.

Torn in between the two
'Cause I really wanna be with you
But something's telling me
I should leave you alone
But I really want to be with you.

And you got me just torn in between the two
'Cause I really wanna be with you.

There were no issues when we started out
It was cool, it was everything that love's about
But something happened, plus I feel it's over now
'Cause I can't understand you now.
Now, I just can't understand you now.

A part of me says it's all my fault
A part of me says he ain't what you want
A part of me says to get my bags
A part of me says I can't do that.

A part of me wants to leave
But a part of me wants to be here with you
And every time I think that it's over and done
You make me fall back in love.

So many times I had my foot out the door
So many times I thought to give you a chance
Thought you'd be a better man
Now I'm sitting here and I'm so confused.

'Cause I keep fighting myself for you
I don't know how much more I can take
But I can't feel this way
You got me so torn...

Memories

I'm blinded by this feeling not understanding the meaning of things that life deals us. Why do we go through things that cause pain? With nothing left but memories. 
Scarred hearts yet broken and I'm lost in my good memories.  
Smiling to myself, like I'm crazy.
I'm trying to hold a positive attitude disputing with my feelings.
It’s hard trying to find something to stand for until your dreams are crushed and then your rushed by decisions your will regret.
So hard to forget...
But yet great things come to those waiting in the darkness alone
Protecting this heartbeat at all times, feeling like you only get one chance, and it’s the hardest until thoughts flood your mind. The night of that perfect dance, do you remember?  You were happy for that moment and looking into their eyes.  Maybe it was that touch to the knee from that special someone that made you nervous and yet warm inside. Maybe your moment was felt with a kiss that brought tears to your eyes.  Or that conversation that you never wanted to end, six hours later, lying in bed watching the sunrise.  
Make it last forever because memories that touch the heart never cease.  Freed from the blame games and if it’s all the same I love my happy thoughts without the past of broken hearts and dreams lost.  
Can't you see I'm standing here maybe for the moment.  I'm alone without the tears in my eyes but my soul cried.  Poetry explains it perfectly ...I’m fighting and dealing with so much and I'm not much of a man without pain and happiness.  I've learned the best lessons taught. Yes I'm thankful, brought to my knees because I can share my happy memories. In our lifetime we all hope to shine. Whether it be with the stars in the sky or in someone’s eyes.  Keep your good memories close, along with positive thoughts bringing your hopes for a better future, maybe even making your day worth looking forward too.  No penny thoughts here just my memories that are and forever will be my own peaceful poetic verses giving life to my heart.

our love

our love has come and gone
just like the freshly played melody of our song
though i cannot lie
i will sigh
to you i will say a final goodbye
our love has faded away
like a breeze on a hot summers day
our love has gone out of fashion
and its time to move on
because our love has come and gone
like the faded memory of our song
and with a sigh
to you i say a final good bye

Do Not Delay

Remember that day
Your memory set to replay
Remember that day
When your life was astray

Tattered curtains in the wind
A path you soon rescind
Echoes of silence in the halls
Shadows dance upon the walls
Her door off its frame
Search, call her name
Terror brings you to your knees
Your gut twisting with unease

Remember that day
Your memory set to replay
Remember that day
When your life was astray

Screams burn outside
The attack worldwide
Determined to find her
Afraid of what may occur
Heart breaks at the thought
When nearby a gun is shot
Running wild in the night
Praying it’ll be alright

Remember that day
Your memory set to replay
Remember that day
When your life was astray

Words still engraved
Your soul enslaved
Memories on your mind
Apocalypse of mankind
Her love you dearly miss
The unforgettable last kiss
Feeling her last breath
As she welcomed death

Remember that day
Your memory set to replay
Remember that day
When your life was astray
Remember that day 
When she faded away
When you were unable to say
What your heart wish to convey

The Eve Of Never New Years Eve Heartbreak

As the time winds down,
And the shots get more hectic,
My mind begins to scramble,
Now *****is getting skeptic,
At 5 I hear your voice,
I see your smile,
I feel your hate,
At 4 I feel Mary,
I feel Love,
But at it's fate,
At 3 I see you walking,
I see him walking,
I see the Eve,
At 2 I begin to set my mind up to believe,
At 1 all hope is lost and by then I can retrieve,
My thoughts and now I can fully receive,
The news but I ask why you had to deceive?
And now you have all of the eyes staring,
As your Infidelity begins to show,
And your conscious begins to scare,
Right around the same time that my heart stops to care,
And in the midst I'm left there,
In the air with no one to lend a comforting hand,
*****I got treated like a fan,
On the Eve of Never.....

Your Memory Keeps Walking Through My Mind

Just when I thought you 'd gone away for good,
On sleepless nights the bitter truth I find --
When love we knew still fills my heart
And won't leave me alone
And your memory keeps walking through my mind.

There are times my heart can't seem to bear the pain --
And time without you now is so unkind.
I see your face and wonder
Will my arms hold you again --
And your memory keeps walking through my mind.

I spend endless days remembering you,
Sleepless nights still wanting you --
The love we shared still haunts me
Every night and every day.

When the morning sunlight fills my lonely room
And I've left another sleepless night behind,
I let my heart prepare itself
To face another day
While your memory keeps walking through my mind.
Yes, your memory keeps walking through my mind.

ONE DEMO REMAINING

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All In Good Time

All in Good Time
Sara L Russell, 28/2/14, 00:30

Given time
the inner eye of memory sees with softer reverie,
as through a muslin curtain; softly veiled and far away -
and how temptingly tranquil seem the waters of the past.

Given time
lost minutes lengthen into hours, to long-remembered days,
lost words that needed saying fall like petals in the rain
Turning slowly in the air until they fade to dust at last.

Given time
a distant haunting melody's translated into sighs
birdsong at morning lilting like a glimmering of streams;
and moments of reflection spill too swiftly through our hands.

Given time
dry leaves fly through the chilly air and scatter in the sky
summer will have her finery returned from green to gold,
and snow will cover everything, like time's relentless sands.

A ripple in time

A ripple in time


Obsessed with love 
We didn't see the moon slide down 
Like an emerald button over the window
Shining through our tangled legs

The night didn't move 
Nailed with golden stars 
A strange song drifted over the pine trees
At the mountain  that night
Do you remember? 


Details | Lyric | |

Yesterday

I often look into the stars
And think about just where you are
And can you see what I can see
Is there a time you think of me

When I’m alone I talk to you
The unsaid praises you were due
Alone I listen carefully
A word a sign you sent to me

But maybe it’s too far away
The things I lost to yesterday

The images that I hold dear
Make me believe that you are near
Again upon my knees with you
Forgive the sorrows we’ve been through

Or maybe it’s too far away
Those things I pay for yesterday

I ask you to look through my heart
The moments we shared at the start
And if you see that I’m untrue
I do not know what more to do

Still maybe you’re too far away
And maybe there’s no yesterday

But still just once in a while
There’s hope I still make you smile
Till then
And when
I’m with you again

Remember that was yesterday
And yesterday is far away

Boundless Love

"I come to the garden alone"
In the cool freshness of morning
While the Dove's melodious tone
Invites me to join the song

While "He walks with me and  talks with me"
About His "Amazing love, and how it can be"
How "His spirit is within me"
And "That He my King, would die for me"

Now "In my heart there rings a melody"
I now sing in harmony
With that wonderful cooing Dove
I will always carry that memory within me

That memory of my God's love
"His love his boundless love
Reaches down and touches me"
"It is my Savior's boundless love"

Forever

"FOREVER" was inspired by the pain and heartache people go through.

Dedicated to those who have grief in their life over a loved one, whether they are alive, deceased, sick or in pain.... They will be FOREVER with you in your heart....

Every time I see your face
I wanna feel your warm embrace.
I wanna hold you in my arms,
I'm gonna keep you in my heart... Forever.
Forever... you'll always be there.
I'll hold you close i'll hold you dear,
No matter where you are I know that you will always be here...
By my side, Forever....
By my side, No questions of why... Cuz you ALWAYS care.
Every time I see your face
I wanna feel your warm embrace.
I wanna hold you in my arms,
I'm gonna keep you in my heart.
You'll always be there by my side,
No Questions of why,
Cuz you always care... for me...
Forever...

Shattered Sunlight

The memory strikes the day
The darkness comes to play
Where everything I say
Is not enough, my sunlight has to pay

With everything undone
No place left to run
Another bullet in the gun
For all I am; for hiding from the sun

A shadow in my dreams
For years I’ve planted seeds
My presence a disease
My perfect plan, uprooting all I see

The darkness calls my name
Your beauty just a game
Deception born from shame
I can’t give up until you feel the same

My memory of the light
Hopes some day that you might
Run away, before I steal your sight

But memories of my way
Now shattering the day
And I would scream aloud, but only for your pain

Apology Song

I just didn’t think, 
Did not allow my thoughts to sink,
In my troubled head,
It seems I was misled,
By a part of me, I yearned to find,
A part of me, I left behind,

Minutes past 11 and seconds to midnight,
As I wandered in the dark, something wasn’t quite right,
I didn’t stop to sit and think these things through,
I didn’t stop to think how it may affect you.
As I analyse from every angle and every part,
I want you to know, just followed my heart.

I just didn’t know, 
Did not know where I was to go,
In my troubled head, 
That little voice I dread,
Told me to go on and not even turn back,
My wisdom buried and everything turned black.

After one train and hours sitting in the cold,
I finally realize I was feeling quite bold,
I knew those next bus rides would create some fear,
But I kept telling myself that I mustn’t shed a tear, while I’m here.
I had to find her before she took her own life,
But she only wanted mine, as I saw her hold that knife.

I just didn’t say, 
Didn’t say if I was okay,
In your troubled head,
You may have thought me dead,
But that voice murmured,
And told me to come back, I replied with one word,
I did come back, and I kept my word,
I kept my promise and I know that she heard.

I just didn’t think,
Did not allow my thoughts to sink,
In my troubled head, 
It seems I was misled,
By a part of me, I couldn’t see,
A part of me, I found in friends and family.

I did run away, and I know I did wrong,
I did run away, and I know I did wrong,
I did run away, and I know I did wrong.

The reasons why, in my apology song,
Listen to this rhyme, my apology song,
This rhyme’s for you, my apology song.

Memories We

There is a sky - there is a sea --
There is a you and there is a me --
Put them together - what do I see?
Memories you, memories me, memories we.

I can recall times that we've had --
some of them good and some of them bad --
They just go on so endlessly ---
Memories you, memories me, memories we.

Memories you, memories me --
they become one big memory we.
Oh, how I love memories three ---
Memories you, memories me, memories we.

Sometimes I see memories blue ---
Time when there was no memory you.
So, happy am I when I can see ---
Memories you, memories me, memories we.

Memories you, memories me ---
they become one big memory we.
Oh, how I love memories three ---
Memories you, memories me, memories we.

Where I Sit

I am not going to think about it ,
Can't do much from where I sit.
    Wasn't me that couldn't agree,
We know who it's so easy to see.
    Won't say much to help you out,
It was your decision that's no doubt.
     You've done no wrong I can hear you say,
Always the same with you every single day.
      Telling me I am wrong and just no good,
I should have left you back when I could.
      Now I am stuck  so in love wit you,
And all you want is something new.
      The evil and wickedness that you  soe
Has touched just about everybody you kow.
      Living the lie and playing the deceit,
Preying on the kind and gentle those who are weak.
       The day will come when you will pay ,
For all those you hurt along your way.
        It's not always good to come out on top ,
Especially when you see it's only you that you've got.
        Live out your days alone , sick and afraid .
You just wouldn't listen to anything I'd say.
        I am sorry my dear but this you did on your own,
It's your turn to suffer and you can never come home.
        I'm not going to think about it,
Wouldn't do any good from where I sit.

There ain't no going back

There Ain't No Going Back.

I took a trip across the sea
In the year of ninety eight
To seek my ancient bones of yesteryear
So I  boarded me the big jet plane
For a twenty hour flight
With expectations never really clear.

My past and me came face to face
So I drank a lot of beer
And I coughed and spluttered in that London cold
Then a thought jumped out to bother me
And it came on very clear
That you cannot go back to things of old.

There ain’t no going back
It’s the truth now it’s a fact
That what once was is truly cold and dead
The road may last forever
Yet backwards one moves never
Those days long gone their streets one cannot tread 

So I learned me a lesson
All my ghosts been laid to rest
And England lost a son for evermore
And the bird will no more wander
He will rest beside the nest
For home be where I am and that’s for sure.

NIGHTMARES & WHISKEY

In a room stark & white 
A nightmare he will ride tonight 
Twisted sheets in a rider's grip 
as he settles in for that fateful trip 
silently he screams & shouts 
This time there'll be no turn out 
The final clash of beast & man 
In the mind's arena plays out again 
Once was a time he was among the best 
Until that Brahma stepped on his chest 
Now he's locked in a ride he can't quit 
as his wife & his family at his bedside sit 
How he longs to be up & out of this bed 
Away from the demons in his head 
But you can't drown a nightmare in morphine 
And every night he rigs up again 

In a room stark & white 
She'll replay the ride tonight 
"Just one more ride & I'm done 
I've got to help raise our son" 
He'd said as he climbed in the chute 
and straddled that Brahma brute 
With a nod & a prayer, he marked out 
His last would be his best, no doubt 
Then, with a sudden twist & a flash of horn 
The cowboy from his seat was torn 
She watched him fall & struggle to rise 
Numb to the crowd's horrified cries 
Now she sits here each night without rest 
Cradling their baby boy close to her chest 
How she longs to have him hold her near 
Later, she reaches for the bottle to chase the fear 
But you can't drown a nightmare in whiskey 
And every night she rigs up again 

Under the arena's bright lights 
He'll dance with a nightmare tonight 
Wearing a greasepaint smile to hide the pain 
He plays out that fateful ride again 
One step out of rhythm & rhyme 
He'd lost the race against Brahma & time 
Word's haunt him still of a Cowboy's last request 
After that Brahma had stomped on his chest "Tell Katie I love her & I'm sorry for this" 
"If I'd listened to her, I'd not be in this mess" 
"You & the boys take care of her & my son" 
"I hear the chopper landing, guess this ride is done" 
How he wishes he could run that race once more 
The memory pushes him hard, it won't be ignored 
But you can't mask a nightmare with greasepaint 
And every night he rigs up again 

A wild Bullrider, loved one or clown 
no matter the poison the memory won't drown 
Nightmares, whiskey, greasepaint or morphine 
Can't kill the demons that ride through your dreams

Learning Curves: Repost

It's time we had a conversation;
Yes, meaning just you and me.
We've both given into temptation; 
And neither knowing how to be.

It's like you see me and you don't;
Then we fight a losing battle.
Yes, we will and no we won't; 
I could hold you, and say that you matter.

I'd do that, yet with who?
I should wait though I hate to pretend.
I've seen your eyes what's only true;
What you give I can't have until when?

Stopwatch

Sometimes, I don't
like who I am;
Yeah, I'm that kind
of man.
Who I am is out of
place,
Yet the mojo stays.
My cards I've
cultivated;
Still I'm vexed on
days when
I know I've waited
and waited,
And nothing seems to
happen.
Beauty flies right
by me;
I see the past
behind me.
Some things are
bittersweet,
And remain bad
timing.

A man called Bob

A man called Bob

I met a man some years ago
A man with so much soul
He was a Maori warrior
And he seemed so very whole
We used to play Guitar together
And we’d talk of mystic things
Whenever I think of my friend Bob
Such sadness does this bring.

Bob he was a ‘one off’ man
He stood there all alone
Most folk they just worshipped him
For never was he known
To hurt someone in anyway
With mouth or foolish act
He was a total ‘gentle man’
With courage, style and tact.

Old Bob, he taught me how to live
Though I’m not there quite yet
He died of cancer of the brain
And I will not forget
How I watched his essence leave his shell
On that day so long ago
Now in, my deepest vastest depths
A part of him does glow.

Hand In Hand

My love and I
We decided to go for a midnight stroll
Gaze up at the birds in the sky
And watch the time slowly roll

So by the park, the two of us, together
Walked through this world, we'll change it, make a stand
I will love this girl forever
We're all alone tonight, Hand In Hand

She embraced the world, nature was her passion
Her eyes drowning with love and life
A traditional girl, not caught up by the latest fashion
I know she'd make a beautiful mother, and wife

She asked if I loved her that night
So I took her up to a hill, overlooking the land
As she, It was a beautiful sight
And I kissed her lips, Hand In Hand

I Remember Music

To bring a bit of happiness to my soul
I’ve got to sing along to a little rock n’ roll
Don’t try and tell me it’s all out of date
Elvis is still rocking, Eddie Cochran's' blues were great




When I need to bring rhythm to this body of mine
I listen to the soul of motown it sounds divine
Sweet soul music with a dash of R and B
It brings a smile to my face these classics of history




Just to sweeten up those memories of mine
I’ll play something soft that throws me back in time
Smooching to the music in pure harmony
Takes me to another place romantically




If I want to get funky and really get on down
I put on the Godfather yeah’ James brown
With lots of movements I start to swing
It’s a whole new dance a totally wild thing




Depending on my taste of musical tunes
I'll Play something to ease my musical moods
Because they bring life into my musical soul
I'll stick on that jazz by Nat King Cole

ROLE OF AN ARTIST

Artists have great roles.
Correcting what is wrong.
Checking what is false.
And advocating for what is right.
Not instigators of conflicts.
Not as well crafter of falsehoods.
I love you, artist.

Odessey

Where
To find the road to you
The road that leads me home
The home that finds me in your arms again

How
To see my journey through
The journey where I roam
I roam the world in search for you 'til then

Till then I'll seek
The image in my mind
The dream that still yet breathes
The heart that beats
The eyes after her her kind
Then
I'll face the rising sun
The sun that brings new life
A life for us to share as one again

What
Must I do to prove true
True to the quest I hold
A quest un-vowed, but binding to my heart

When
The day that I'll find you
Find you in my arms, hold
Hold you in my arms, never more to part

To part ones past
Erase the moments lost
Replaced with memories shared
Which don't exist
The past is just a ghost
Part
A mistake once past made
Made then without a choice
The choice that split the two halves of our heart

Why
This odessey to seek
To seek the way to to you
To you who are just memories in my mind

Be
It possible to speak
To speak again to to you
To you for whom I'd give my life to find

How
To see my journey through
The journey where I roam
I roam the world in search for you 'til then

Where
To find the road to you
The road that leads me home
The home that finds me in your arms again

In your arms again

track 18

thanks for the tea, heres something about me
nothing beats poetry, sitting underneath a tree
thankin' my family for a strong identity
people watching cause its free, beauty in the scene
has me staring with a cheese, a smile at what i see
possibly a dream,  caught up mentally 
imagining a few things, with this human being
who has the sweetest energy, soulfood like collard greens
all fools falling means I'm really dumber than I seem
being intelligent isn't just from memory
its handling impermanence light and sensibly
and lady I'm feeling your sultry melodies
we'd be crowded if its three, sit and be my company
must be a chemistry major cause the reactions meant to be
the love we can achieve, is safe from any thieves
 hold em from my queen, hearts tucked into my sleeve

The Saddest Song I've Ever Heard

The Saddest Song
(I’ve Ever Heard)

No guitar no drums
No melody to be heard
Just the beat of my heart 
Thud thud thud
Harder & harder
As the fear gets stronger
What is a girl to do when the one she loves the most?
Is also the one she fears the most
Saying no won’t help
He will do it anyway
With his manhood 
With a knife or sometimes even a candle
The pain is more than I can bear 
Yet I have to stay strong 
He won’t stand for tears
So inside I cry
As I listen to the sound of 

The Saddest Song
(I’ve Ever Heard)

I wanted so bad to tell 
I wanted to make it all stop
Yet I was afraid of losing the one person 
Who loved me the most
I didn’t want anyone to take him away
So I suffered in silence
I did my best to hide the pain
And the music played on for 

The Saddest Song 
(I’ve Ever Heard)

With a mother who didn’t seem to care
All I had was my dad 
Yet he was the one who couldn’t control his 
Desires 
He was the one hurting me more & more
When it wasn’t him 
It was his friends who paid to have a piece of the action
So I just retreated inside myself
So I didn’t have to feel the pain
Tried to block it out
Pretend I was someone else 
Watching from a distance 
Yet the pain still didn’t go away
And the tears never stopped falling
Inside of me
I felt so all alone 
Listening to the sound of 

The Saddest Song
(I’ve Ever Heard)

He passed away 
I pushed the pain away
Locked it in a box in a space deep inside 
Forgot it all until recently
Then the music started to play
And the memories came rushing back
The holes in my childhood are filling in
And for each new memory 
A tear forms in my eyes 
And no matter how hard I try
I can’t keep them from falling
Down my face 
As I realize 

The Saddest Song
(I’ve Ever Heard)

Is the story of my life 
& 
It I hadn’t remembered 
It may have never been heard

When it finally turns out/
That November is overthrown by December/
When the first snow falls down/
Will be clear/ that nobody is remembered/ 

And I will come…
Somewhere in chest/ between ribs/
You slashed me/ with thoughts/ 
I can feel it with lips/ crawling under my cloths/
Our world is alive/ our life/ we’re alike/

Away

All you feel is pain,
Self-destruction and sorrow.
Please make it go away,
How do we survive and see tomorrow?
It's hard to stay upbeat,
everyone tries to compete.
I know that I am strong,
But there's somethin inside, that feels a bit wrong.
I cant explain these emotions and thoughts,
I need to know, with myself, what is going on..
All you feel is pain,
Self-destruction and sorrow.
Please make it go away,
How do we survive and see tomorrow?
Trust has come and gone so easily,
And people have taken advantage of me,
and my Hospitality, oh.... please...
Take them, away.. from.. me.
All you feel is pain,
Self-destruction and sorrow.
Please make it go away,
How do we survive and see tomorrow?
All you feel is pain,
Self-destruction and sorrow.
Please, make it... go..... Away...

Song of the Raped Virgin

Yet…
Life shows you pain before the smiles
Even though youth has cried for innocence:
Outside the soul one bleeds and hides,
Inside the flesh one dies of nonsense.
When turning pages you see humble hopes:
The book of your life is already ended,
The sea you paint is without boats,
The land you plant is thoroughly cursed.
O, that you wish,
Steps away from you are!
The garden you live in is a grave where to be burned;
And dark shades in your eyes made the night of no star-
To fade out is a grace for those scars you have earned!
And perish all alone…
Like the fresh air in the cold,
Like an old tree the day of thirst,
Or a martyr when to burst…
That shame of your birth must be the same when to hold-
Those lies you tell:
As you are not only the first…

Deep Into The Night

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru, 
It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two.

These memories I replay over and over,
Time after time,
It’s always something 
That makes me smile.
I loved them and lost them. 
NO! They lost me.
I have no regrets because
They helped me find me. 


Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two.

I walk to my window
And I stare out to the moon
I daydream and my dreams
Soon become a reality
If only for just a moment.
Time slows
As I fantasize.
I’m too old for the fairytales
But yet I still believe.
My heart believes dreams do come true.

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two

My yesterdays formed my todays
And my todays
Will shape my tomorrows.
No regrets and no looking back. 
I pulled thru 
And am stronger than before.
More respect 
And self-love,
More picking myself up 
And more positivity,
More laughter
And more joy,
No more sorrow
And lots more happiness.
My goals are aimed
And I’m my only target.

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two

Geared 
And ready
For whatever may come.
Heavily guarded,
Steel walls all up.
As I lay 
And look up at the ceiling
And I ponder what my heart may desire.
With every beat and blood flow thru,
It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two.
Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless.

Deep into the night my mind is at ease 
Yet my heart stays restless. 
I lay and I look up at the ceiling 
And I ponder what my heart may desire. 
With every beat and blood flow thru,
 It releases a heartbreak or maybe even 
two

The Glow of Soft Truths

the glow of soft truths
tucked between the folds of the heart

radiates through the coarse fabric of each fleeting day

transcending the hurdles that litter the way

extinguishing the trepidation and the unfounded fears away

beyond the very now with an eye firmly gazing towards the coming morrow

where genuine peace may be found while dispelling the nasty sting and the solitary sorrow

and when that moment is finally found

when peace and mirth is felt all around

the bliss may seem plentiful, and the being with simple joy may abound

without a word being spoken

without the din, the static of the endless drone

so infused with soothing music, yet hardly making a sound

for the truth of peace that lies in wait

just beyond the corner

is a truth that may never be sought

or bought

for that truth of peace must be ushered inside

until deep in the soul it will then quietly reside...

Claudia Elezibeth Benzio

We never met little Claudia face to face,
But she gave hope to our lives for a  time.
A monthly letter or picture she might trace,
Was enough to make our lives quite sublime.

The Orphanage tutored her in English preparing,
For the day we both felt sure would come.
That this little life would our lives soon be sharing,
Only to learn that things would soon turn glum.

For soon, her correspondence suddenly stopped,
A living mother had returned with priors claim.
Thus slaying the plans we had to soon adopt,
I've prayed the loss I felt was Claudia's gain.

Cold at heart

All this time I've been wondering,
Why we came this far?
All this way for nothing,
And the people are skiing on.

Chorus:
Resorts for your loving,
Drinks are at the bar,
Spend all night discovering.
What people are.

There must be some way round this insanity,
I just can't go on.
Trends are just disgusting me,
And the people are skiing on.

The guy at the bar just caught my eye,
She's holding his hand tight.
Dreaming of what he'll do to me,
I'm planning on taking flight.

He's got me up against the wall,
There's no relief in sight.
I've seen this type of masculinity,
They take you then leave you in the night.

Tomorrow she'll be back with him,
He won't know where she's been.
Left between the covers,
But I'm just skiing on.

Jus A Dream

If my dad can see me now 
He would have a smile on his face
He would say look at my son
Growing up into the man you see today
He would take you through my life story
From frame to frame
And how I was poor and homeless
To making more than minimum wage
He would pick up my babies
Kiss and hug his granddaughters
Whisper to my wife and say
Im glad he made a decision that was smarter
Eat dinner and afterwards
Watch my girls’ eye blinks get longer
Help me put them in bed stand next to me and say
Today we’re both proud fathers
Sometimes I sit back and think
What it would be like if he was here standing next to me
We would get a beer of the frigerator
He would tell me im his best recipe
The wind blows hard and fast
And I noticed no longer was he next to me
The pain hit me like a kick
Then I realized it was just a dream

Memory Lane

The sun falls fast from where it’s at.
I just lit my favorite match; I’ll burn it all away.
Burn it all away, my words and papers.
My words and papers I’ll burn them all away,
The promises, they never meant that much to you anyway. 

The warm water rushes down my face.
I promised you, you’d never see me this way again.
But you build your house with my deck of cards,
Sorting out your King and Queen,
Are you finally proud with what you’ve made?

And when you’re in need of consolation
Your voice in constant ringing I leave with no hesitation.

I turn the key and tread the road 
Rushing to reach what will never be.
I’ve been here before I’ll be here again
Pushing the pedal further traveling down Memory Lane.

They don’t ask me why when I sleep at night
There’s no one there laying at my side
And I’m all alone
They ask me how I sleep at night 
When the lights go out, I hold her close
And feel more alone.

Some bridges just can’t burn.

Laying here vibrating the strings singing the same old songs.
Days go by and I remember all the strings I tried sever.
Each night I sow these threads and you pull the strings
But I can’t mend these lines forever
I will always remember every time I tried, never losing sight
Should I? Could I? Cut the line the time.

Every time you cry I drive, running far from the back of mind
Speeding down the highway, going, knowing I’ll never find what’s mine.

I turn the key and tread the road 
Rushing to reach what will never be.
I’ve been here before I’ll be here again
Pushing the pedal further traveling down Memory Lane.

They don’t ask me why when I sleep at night
There’s no one there laying at my side
And I’m all alone
They ask me how I sleep at night 
When the lights go out, I hold her close
And feel more alone.

Some bridges just can’t burn.
And I’ll keep traveling down the same stretch of road;
Memory Lane, knowing it will but hoping it won’t,
Fuel another trip again.

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major


Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,

swirling,

to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 
kisses,

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 
passion,

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 
hues,

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 
rhyme,

pleading,
forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

Seventeen

I remember your smiling face
Staring down at me
It all just seemed pillows and promises
But soon the comfort fades out
And we’re left with hidden pictures
And misguided hearts

But now, I’ve stared at the memory long enough
That I can feel your hand wrap around mine
And this time, we won’t let go

It’s been so long since seventeen
We’ve gone so far, fearing never to find our way back
School hallways and car backseats linger in my heart
In just a moment, with just another smile you took me back
To seventeen

Now, I’ve stared at the memory long enough
That I can feel your hand wrap around mine
And this time, we won’t let go

Sitting on the edge of the bed
Spiraling toward the edge of my mind
I hear the door close behind you
Still, I sit here, wondering what this means
Somehow I know
Somehow I know, you’ll be back again someday
So I’ll just sit here and let you find your way back to me

I’ve stared at the memory long enough
That I can feel your hand wrap around mine
And this time, we won’t let go

This time, we’ll be walking hand-in-hand

My Lost Love

Try as I may
I couldn't let go
of those bygone days;
Once gone, they
do not come again,
Then why does my mind
keeps recalling them
again and over again?
Oh, why does my heart
keeps reliving
the days of yore in vain?

If the days were like birds,
Oh, I would hold them
in a gilded cage
And nurture them fondly,
I would feed them pearls
and cling on to them dearly;

But the moments once gone,
Never do they come again;
Then why, oh why do I
keep recalling them in vain?

Now I can take her picture
And toss it just some place away,
But the image of her
that's etched in my heart
couldn't be erased try as I may.

Leaving me forlorn
To her heavenly abode
She's gone away forever -
Yet...hardly at all!
Oh, hardly at all!

Port of Call

Port of Call


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

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


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

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


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

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

and dips.


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

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


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

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

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


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

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


Barefoot on a talcum beach,

alone, not lonely,

I have found, at long last,

my final port of call.

Two and a Half

I still remember the days I spent protecting you
The days where all I wanted was to keep the grave from you
And to this very day, the memories won't go away
Shaped into your image and I still feel like a fool

Two and a half years have gone so quickly
Lived them for myself, no one else

Those days left terrible scars, I tried to change the world
Those days altered who we are, I tried to change the world

Now here today the scars have all faded away
A new adult formed from the cocoon of those better days
Two souls clung onto life, two souls embracing a knife
The sharp edge carved us to each other, now gone in separate ways

Two and a half years, so much has changed
We're not who we were, but that's just life

Those days I smile upon, when I tried to change the world
Those days I'd never relive, when I tried to change the world
Now that we've lived, we can try
To see better days

please don't take from me

should i make it there to save you
would you still feel the same
live my life by the moments
pleasured in the rain
but with in these memories 
i choose to stay

if i gave into you 
where would that leave me
tomorrow evening
i'm just a drifter 
living the night by shame

death is a writers angst
the older you get 
the less you care 
to be monitored by it

happy new year, baby
this here is my last song
may god bless you 
and keep you strong

if i told you fortune sleeps
where we lay
would you change your mind 
darling
lie with me and my prayers

life is running vastly on its way
feels i'm like we're dying everday
death warrants me forbidden
living lost in tatters unforgiven

kiss me lonely and goodbye
this world may not end 
but you and i 
we're finished baby
you see i got this fever 
running through me 
not color efficient 
but you're paleness 
feeds my suspicion 
so bye bye pretty girl
you're not the only woman 
in this world

Letting winds lead you a way

from everything.

Leaving all that's left behind,

your moving forward now,

your moving forward from the end.


... & now your fragile hands are empty.

Now your love for dreams shall deplete

& shatter among the leave's,

away with winds that lead you a way from...


Letting winds lead you a way

from everything.

Leaving all that's left behind,

your moving forward now,

your moving forward from the end

New Love Old Flame

Have we meant before by chance
In a distant time, a distant place
Flash backs send me in a trance 
Draw me towards your soul let’s dance   




I’ve got this feeling that won’t subside
This rhythm beating deep inside
When I hold you gal and close my eyes
Oh’ I’m dreaming in paradise
New love, old flame
It’s nice to be with you once again




Dance n’ smooching on the floor
This feels like daja Vu for sure
I can’t resist the way you talk
Sexy movements in the way you walk  



  
I’ve got this feeling that won’t subside
This rhythm beating deep inside
When I hold you gal and close my eyes
Oh’ I’m dreaming in paradise
New love, old flame
Can we rekindle and start again




Bridge
New love old flame
Won’t you come back once again
Pour your flames over me
Kiss my lips and set me free




Thoughts and feelings I have for you
Remind me of a love that I once knew
It’s kinda’ weird this makes me blue
Complete at last now I found you




I’ve got this feeling that won’t subside
This rhythm beating deep inside
When I hold you gal and close my eyes
Oh’ I’m dreaming in paradise
New love, old flame
It’s nice to ignite this desire again

To say Adieu, is so dire a crime

To say Adieu, is so dire a crime,
I said only once,
That same time
Her heart shred tears of pride
by the seaside. 
 
I kissed her lips, so sweet and pale, 
I kissed only once,
Like in a faery tale
A chaste fire warmed her face
With holy grace. 
 
I cannot leave, beside her side,
I loved only once,
To this very day
The same girl that cried to see
her life with me.

Song to a Teaset

I love each little plate of blue,
And ev'ry cup and saucer, too;
You have been mine for many years.
I treasure you. I wept hot tears
When once a child in careless play,
Who knew he should not come your way,
Knocked you across the table top.
I held my breath but could not stop
The clatter, shatter: it is true
My heart's been broken same as you.
But just because a plate is glued,
The handle of a cup is, too,
I do not love you less today:
I love you more I think I'd say.
I value you more your fragile art:
You are so like a broken heart.

Bird in Distress

There is no reason why i shouldn’t do it, i thought 
come what may and what may not. 
The grass is always greener on the other side 
I wanted to explore , to go against the tide. 
The game was on and the score ticked on, 
seemed it was just the beginning of the dawn. 
never knew the boundaries,no fear,no limit, 
never tried so hard, never seen the summit. 
just wanted to hover around,just wanted to glide.
just to ease my mind and come down the slide, 
I thought i knew it all, seen it all, 
but for that something behind the dark wall.
came so close as I always do 
deja vu again, nothing new. 
never dared to jump across the wall 
I ain't crazy, i knew i would fall 
so i turned to fly back, back to base, 
but before i knew,got caught in a haze, 
didn't panic ,played by the rules, 
kept my cool, went on with the cruise. 
I flew on ,but the haze got thicker, 
now i had to act, do it quicker. 
I veered and swerved, tried to nose-dive 
then it all happened, it trapped me naive 
lightning started striking, started striking twice 
venturing into forbidden territory ,I had to pay the price. 
caged in fright in the steel machine 
so freaked and scared,i've never been. 
extreme g-force froze my brain 
deep inside,i felt my blood drain. 
voices ,a thousand wailing voices 
screaming and whispering all the noises 
disillusioned and petrified ,i tried to scream 
my memory failed and i began to dream 
woke up with a start in a different scene 
pondering in the dark, nothing to be seen
I struggled inside my hollow self 
couldn't breathe ,couldn't cry for help 
but i thought i cried, someone came along 
i tried to run away, but it was too long 
dark forces came all around 
haunted my soul ,the banshee sound 
i fell into the valley of death 
the dark knight there cometh 
to drown me inside the quicksand of hell,
this time for me tolls the bell. 
sliding inside that black hole, 
i didnt want to let go of my soul. 
I took a look at the black sky 
the last time before i die 
my memory faded and then i drowned.
stranger to the mystery around 
i floated around in the maze of time 
in an age of evil and endless crime 
then came that flash of light
my guardian angel on my flight
i opened my eyes, got back my senses 
saved myself from all the wicked trenches
"planet earth calling" that familiar voice 
home sweet home,bring back all my joys.
vow unto death i took, never again to fly 
the vow that would be the biggest lie.

Faith Healer

The odor is intolerable
Like a foul beast clinging to the end 
I can barely subdue its subterfuge 
But here I am, 
I’m standing here of sound and mind
Waiting for the time that answers my own questions

Can it race with the fires of Orc?
Doubtful, but it can jog steadily can’t it?
The weather is awful, filled with sounds
Penetrating a document not written
It pains me to fight through the night
Not because it’s dark, but because I am just a shadow.

Lester drives but
Motional lasts forever
Still driving
Still crying
And slowly dying as time waves on
Like oceans that can’t be seen.

Nobody cares and everyone listens
Ironic, like a bible that holds lies and deception
Can its will be pierced?
Can freedom stay free?
Is it worth it to stay hooked when everyone around
Seeks liberty?

The Blizzard of 2011

What things to do on a snowy day?
Drifts to the withers on a half grown horse.
Blizzard conditions prohibit outside stay,
So inside the barn I'm found of course.

With thoughts adrift to former times,
I see the faces of those now late.
Those for whom my heart yet chimes,
Gathered all, around Heaven's gate.

Excavating memories that have amassed,
Of those now sharing my life in part.
Even of all those who have long passed,
That still have residence within my heart

Living Kingdom

A memory coated in blue
Of dire times; a castle of gloom
A basement filled with the buried dead
My throne within, painted in red

My tower gone, I stepped out alone
In to the mist - an attempt to atone
My basement torched, ignited by grief
With monsters dead, I no longer sleep

That kingdom crumbled in youth
The walls I built made enemy of truth
But still I stand, a victim of self
A treasury lost, it was traded for wealth

The silence turned into words
From inner self, out of this world
The mirror’s glass shattered by light
The darkness cleansed, granting me sight

A memory I leave in the past
For what is gone has brought me at last
To a place clear and true
This garden is my kingdom renewed

Passion ILLusion

From the black canal,
I awoke into a beast of light.
Eager wishes through my very blood and soul,
an illusion as my memory told.
An illusion so real it seemed so true.
A beautiful woman with plenteous silken hair,
stood bare from end to end before my eyes and
flowered a smile, as my memory told.
The thirst of my soul rose, I moved near to touch her
and she vanish.
I turned and there she was bare from end to end before 
my eyes.
She laid in china blooms,pure and simplistic,
as my memory told.
An illusion so real it seemed so true.
I laid next to her and she cradled in my arms
with eyes entire.
Her lips were sweet to my desire,
as my memory told.
The harping angels rose, devil passion wrestled the tides 
of fate and drifted in.
She moved in circles, and the circles moved, moved, and moved.
My body mart to a motion not of my own.
In the heat of passion, I awoke from the black canal into a
beast of light.

The Time Has Come To Tell The Tale

The Time Has Come to Tell the Tale…

As all stories begin; a long, long time ago many years removed from now
My memory recalls events from the age of two, when the bullets took the life
Of a good man, an honest man, and what would this world need with that? 
We’re built on lies from the foundation up and there is no room for an honorable man
Led by the hand we’re all parts in the play, pieces to a puzzle still unbuilt
We take our pain like the victors to the grave, though our silence must be broken
Unspoken words may rhyme, but will it be enough that you can read between the lines
Grasp the meaning to the vagueness as it is spelled in black and white…

The never-ending trauma of past events that have done far more harm than good
No lesson learned, no explanation ever given, no apologies ever offered or accepted
And the pain again returns to haunt me, because I know things would not be the same
And what difference it all makes now is the battle I continue to fight each day
Few chances given, even fewer taken, so many risks I have never run
Where has loyalty ever gotten anyone, in this day and age where deeds die with the day?
Held back by the inhibitions that were inbred into my way of thinking…

Let me break

Make me forget about this,
How beautifully I was falling,
Convince me it was my mistake,
There was always no one to rely on,
And no one to fight for.

Look into my eyes again,
Speak your lies, and
Die in it.

Make me forget your face,
Your standing there with no move,
Make me forget about you,
The poor illusion,
The wall that doesn't speak,
The life without breath.
Let me break.

Don't ask me to explain.
In darkness I do stand again but
This is my zone, my home.
This is my strength.

Let me break.
Let me forget about you.

The Class of 1956

Some promptly left and didn't return,
Some chose to stay with concern showing.
For a finer life perhaps the first did yearn,
All building lives as families were growing.

While additional left and later moved back,
Renewing friendships, letting memories churn.
Having tasted life the other side of the track,
Sporadically, for School Reunions, others return.

We've now grown older and some have passed,
We now have fewer possessive things to crave.
Our hair is graying and our eyes are glassed,
As our steps grow slower this side of the grave.

But we've lived life by no means just half way,
Wherever we've been we remained in God's sight.
For without His grace what would we be today,
Just old Haskell Haymakers but still in the fight.

Static

I'm troubled and puzzled about this life
And why it is this way
Yet I understand sometimes
Why my skies have rain
Why they're partly cloudy
Life gave hurricanes
Not everything about me 
Was the choice of made mistakes

Snow Clouds over a Volcano

Snowing
The wind around was blowing
Long after the shining sun would
Melt these days away

Again
The second round would begin
Pressure from the months before would
Bear heavily on me

Going
Little streams are flowing
Endless piles of snow vanished
In the blink of an eye

Quiet
Gone are all the riots
Gone is all the endless noise
From the crowd I used to know

Ending
The summer heat was rending
The endless gray clouds from the sky
To shine some light on me

Shining
No more silver linings
All that once was ensured
Is no longer that way

Sighing
Everyone is crying
Nothing's as it once was
And that terrifies us all

Alone
Look at how we've all grown
As snowflakes cast from our cloud
Into this volcano underneath

with thanks to Don Henley

with thanks to Don Henley...

...an echo of her laugh

whispers past

a simple joy, a gentle breeze

of quiet reflection that can never last

the fleeting innocence once drifting along

then disappearing into the notes of that Don Henley song

the end, he sang, of the innocence once felt

of days and of nights of serene peace

gone forever now, 

for into the night's void everything must eventually melt

though the memories and the thoughts 

and the echoes of her whispers

settled this gypsy heart, putting it at ease

but that's all long gone now

even though the echoes of her whispers

seem never to cease...

In The Haze

Clear summer nights, when it’s still arm outside, I lay in bed and think of you.
Old summer days, from another time and place; I had a younger point of view.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.
 
Old pictures fade, no reason to be saved, especially of me and you.
Remember when – old things were different then.  Too late, nothing left to do.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.
 
Birght summer morns.   After I’ve locked the doors,  I leave my car and earn my pay...
Till five-o-one, when I’ve clocked out and I’m gone.  My mind slips back to another day.
Time heals old wounds if we let them, but only if we can forget them, 
And leave them in the haze.

For Joni Mitchell

for joni mitchell...

wistful strands slipping by

of grounded dreams

that i once believed would fly...

strewn around this emptiness

where once there soared,
dreams, not of riches

but of simple happiness...

'both sides now' you sang,
from within

and from a feeling of being without

you moved me so, i cried, i laughed

i wanted to run into the falling rain and shout...

'its life's illusions that i recall' your voice soared and dipped and with life breathed

as every one of those words you sang

tore into me, as my very core seethed...

not with bitterness or loss or with feelings even vaguely sad

your words seethed and burned through me

igniting memories of this life i've shared...

with those who aren't illusions

of those who've embraced me

each time i've slipped and taken yet another fall...

for like you...

'i really don't know life at all'

One more memory

To mine let it be true
Can I ask one thing of you
One last memory is all I say is it too much
I daze to see your face, I tremble in your embrace
I shed a tear for you please thine be true
One more memory of your body to caress and nothing less
I need you now tonight will it be right
I see the changing of the leaves
I feel the birds begin to fly
and I softly mention to you should I take another ride
To mine let it be true one more memory is all I ask of you
My heart it feels so sorrowful to see you in this winter will you be shy
I feel the motion of the planets realign in our eyes
I designate my shadow just to feel alive
For a pigeon knows her shadow and for that it may be enough
But for me its a reflection in a memory that must show up

Tapestry

Upon the wall it's hanging there       When I am bored I often stare     Done in reds, browns and various hues      It often picks me up when I have the blues    It's not three dimensional but quit square     Filling the space which would otherwise be bare      On the front depicts the view of a man and his dog sled team in rows of two      Perhaps it's the memories from whence it came    That brings me such joy and is to blame     For the many hours spent gazing       Upon my tapestry with the midnight sun blazing!

The Deluge

The Deluge.

finally the deluge

skipping in rhythmic heartbeats
the softly sprinkling rain

hums and lulls and cajoles and comforts
the weary evening
 
glistening leaves
on beaming trees
 
blades of grass shimmer
like rough diamonds strewn about
 
and settling in my heart
is the softly lilting touch
of peace
of truth
 
of the rain clearing away
the debris of this passing day

Remember This Moment 78

The memory remains in my mind like a tattoo,
the way i used to hold you and look at you. 
Your touch was just right and your kiss was perfect,
if i could rewind the hands of time i would do it.

But the memory still remains in my heart,
the way we drew our love like an art.
Your golden blond hair sparkled even in the night,
is was so lovely i maybe even lost my sight. 

The music played with my hands on your hips,
maybe you didn't know how to move that's why i gave you tips.
Than when you understood the beat, you started to flow,
we moved together to the beat so nice and slow.

I can still feel the touch of your hands on my back,
the way you held me and you never looked back.
You are the one and only i told you before,
and i wasn't lying, i made it true into a default. 

Remember when you jumped into my arms at the sight of me, 
i held onto you hoping that, that feeling would never flee. 
We were so you and all so free,
but now i'm a million miles away, so just please remember me.

Rambling

Sleepless nights,
Tales from a rambling man,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
To deaf ears,

Long flights,
With both feet on the ground,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
But no one hears a sound,

Give your all to the world,
With intentions of receiving nothing,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
Am I working towards something?

Let my words soothe your soul,
Let my heart give you happiness,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,
Ramble on,

Jisei

Phantoms, whirling
Beyond my grasp as I stroke the sky
Of familiar faces
Whom vanished from sight as our bonds died

Day in, day out
Waking up just to fall asleep again
Where is there meaning
When life exists just to end

Bonds of iron
Of friends who said we'd never forget what we had
Lost to ages
Lost beneath the waves in black cloth clad

Now where do I stand?
Alone with memories
Of flames and peacefulness
Of love and lust

Can you hear me talking?
Through time and space again
This Jisei of mine
Would be my only comfort in this world of solitude

My red flame, so dear
Dragged me down when I tried to keep us both alive
Lays beside me
Both beyond wasted and we both survived

A streak of pink light
Flashed before my eyes and was gone before I could blink
Reached out to me
But vanished before my eyes before I had a chance to think

Koibito
We traded scars together for an entire year
Alluring senpai
Her final mark on me left me stranded with my fears

Westward ally
Opened up my mind to how this world works
Marching forward
Swimming to tomorrow while blinding by the murk

And what of tomorrow?
My life predicted by
The ways of the world
Wake up just to fall asleep

Can you hear me talking?
Through life and death again
This Jisei of mine
Would be my only comfort in this game of mice and men

Lonely bars

I’m sitting at the bar
With some friends of mine,
We’re talking about
The old times.
 
The guy over there
Is drinking scotch and coke,
All I can hear
Are old rhymes.
 
In the corner, there’s
A chorus of loud voices,
The local band is
Struggling to be heard.
 
There are some guys
Getting set up for the night,
There’s a painted doll
Cracking onto the barman.
 
As the barman pulls
Another beer, the local hoods
Pick a fight with
Bloke they think’s a queer.
 
We have another drink,
And make that one our last,
We find an old parking spot,
And try to recapture
Some long lost class

Burn A Memory

tears...
filled with the years of a love lost
..and of the cost
they have shed as i have bled
-- left scarred with wounds that never heal --
the kind of stuff that stays in your head
..just can't forget but can never reveal
-- man with an iron will --
determination of a mission
keeps "sanity" at the helm
patience is the struggle
that time must endure
to regain a new life
and a love re-born

*[ chorus ]*
burn a memory to fuel the fire
that drives desire even higher
no matter how much the mind will tire
endure what transpires or be labeled a liar

sworn to a quest with no end
this was known before it began
complete another cycle
and come back empty-handed
then start all over again
..this is how it is
..this is how it's been
good men commit to righteousness
while sinners continue to sin
where shall the pain be sent
to keep the shame dormant?
walking around in circles
feet now swollen and purple
precious time was ill-spent

*[ chorus ]*
burn a memory to fuel the fire
that drives desire even higher
no matter how much the mind will tire
endure what transpires or be labeled a liar

a lesson lived is a lesson learned
to look the other way
your head must turn
and to put it behind you
..just keep on walking...
ignore the ghosts of the past
that keep talking
haunting thoughts of an era forgot
-- some things are better not remembered --
all the blood dropped
from a merciless onslaught
just because no one surrendered
this is when no one wins
the pain still lingers
let's not pretend...
no need to point fingers

*[ chorus ]*
burn a memory to fuel the fire
that drives desire even higher
no matter how much the mind will tire
endure what transpires or be labeled a liar

no coward nor a quitter
more like a go-getter
staying clever is far better
walk with a clean conscience
factor out coincidence
mind set on retrieving the one thing
that is now just a memory
..forever wondering
-- surrender to the suffering --
strong is he
who overcomes misery
and doesn't proceed
to feed on self-pity

WHITE LIES

     WHITE LIES
          Verse 1
You're in my mind, you're still part of me.
Here in my mind, where my heart can see.
Though you are gone, I go on--
and your memory is still in my mind!

             Verse 2
Something that's borrowed and something blue.
Something that's old, and then something new.
I get along--but it's wrong--
that your memory is still in my mind!

            CHORUS
I take thee forever love and cherish!
Sickness and good health, to love and cherish!
Poverty and wealth! Til death do us part!
I take thee forever, I'm forever!
I'm a part of you! My love's forever!
Even little white lies come from the heart!

White lies. White lies.

Your Song

There is satisfaction
So bittersweet
That though you sometimes hate me
You are still in love with me
You will fight it and deny it
Perhaps say it isn't true
But I can still connect to you
And can feel it shining through
Sometimes I feel you in my head
Even when another is in my bed
I can roam around inside the safety
Of the love we exchanged
And the memory of it lingers
I use it to be what he deserves
There is no reason, no denial
The memory is for my own survival
I stand firmly where I do belong
He sings the words, but you wrote the song

Unfinished Rooms

This morning wakes, with a celebration of memory and a playful dance of thought,
Pulling you into my mind, the sense of our presence in my mind’s rooms.
A time from past lives, for both, the sharing of seconds when worlds collapse,
Sharing, judging, evolving, flowing for moments, departing for now.

In my mind, the place that has been carved out for you in this world,
Holds constant, and has within it, such careful plans of magnificence, and has 
the scent of you.
Have you cleaned anything out of that memory hall, to make room,
Are the seconds available in your recall, can you taste the charm you passed me?

Had we understood the impermanence of these instants, would we have 
purchased a second more?
Were we aware and chose our own pace, our own rhythm, our own measure?
A timeless sense of your humanity caught in this room and adored,
For your passion, your delight, your soul’s love of self.

Understand that each word, phrase and thought, 
Has become me. I breathe each one, as if my own air comes from them.
I am more because of your existence and your disclosure,
A warm smiling calm is found in the remembrance of each instant.

This reflection of you I give as a gift.
In thankfulness and adoration for all that you have shared, have given,
Where you allow me to witness and steal, those flashes of your brilliance.
Know this extraordinary sight of you, sits as a spirit in my room, always.

Unforgotten -2-

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

You are alive
Others deny it and leave the truth behind
Well, I most certainly know...
I will not end up in ruin

Instead, I'll remain loyal to you
because you are an unforgotten memory that changed my cruel ways
Straightening up my choices,
leading me to an easing and most pleasing place

Well...I certainly know, without a doubt, you are unforgotten
in my memory and best of all...in God's loving heart
You are forgiven in your trespassing mind that stumbles in repetitive sin 
 
You are an unforgotten cure to my throbbing pain
You're making me obsessive to you...sincerely insane

Though you're quite the catch 
in my sealed-up memory
You will remain
in a foolish mind 
fiddling around in flattering aspiration

You are unforgotten
In my flattered memory,
You are unforgotten 

You are a cure to my whole entire life,
unforgotten drug of mine

MEMORY OF AN AMIGO

The twinkling stars are over my head,
The shimmering sand is my bed,
The shooting star’s flare,
Does not bring me a nightmare,
But arouses the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

The light and colour,
In the open air,
Of a chilly polar night,
Bring me delight,
And arouse the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

On the moonlit night,
Calm and bright,
The dancing polar light,
Dazzles my sight,
And arouses the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

Reveling in Nature’s delight,
I am a ‘blithe spirit’!
Yet why o why? I know not,
Arises in the mind a somber thought,
That arouses the memory of an amigo,
Gone into oblivion long ago!

Your Memory has a Cell Phone

Your memory keeps calling me.
Your memory wont let me be.
Every hour of the day,
at work or at play.
Your memory wont let me alone...
your memory has its own cell phone.

Your memory has its own cell phone,
and your memory is on the roam
with a private line
straight throught to my mind,
and a ringer that sounds in my heart,
and each time it calls, i fall apart.

It doesn't matter where I am, 
the service never does go down.
Though I hold another tight,
the calls wake me in the night.
Your memory won't leave me alone.
Your memory has its own cell phone.

If for every call i had a dime,
and a penny each tear I've cried,
I'd be a millionaire.
And i know you don't care.
Your memory wont leave me alone...
your memory has its own cell phone.

Brrring... brrring... hello, oh it's you.
Yeah, your calls always get through.
It's 4 a.m., you didn't know?
Yeah babe, I still love you so.
Yeah, call me.  Call me anytime.
Baby, call me... use the private line.

Goodnight, Year of Change

Snow whispered unto me
"Nothing remains static"
Yet I remained completely still
While I shoveled the snow away

Second month frozen gave way to warmth
From passion, from anger
From a wealth of confusing events
And spending it all in a volcano

Burnt out in the cold
I shelved my axe once again
Stuck down in a rut
I let the melting snow sail me home

The new leaves bravely sprung to life
As I let the breeze take me wherever
All bent to my will
As the ending of something great came upon me

I waved my savior goodbye
Setting out back to home
Returning to the promised land so shortly after
To while away my time in peace

I waved my lover goodbye
As she flew far out over the sea
And as my body fell apart
I demanded ever more from it

Everything fell apart
Bedridden and heartbroken, I cried alone
Oh, how I wish I could have cried
Oh, how I wish I could have died

Back on my feet again, huh?
I spent the month as I spent the last
But with hope instead of despair
With a spirit formed from thin air

Back in the saddle again, huh?
In my absence, I became a legend
With a lack of self, I fell to despair
I couldn't bear to fall again

From the grim jaws of death, I found hope again
I watched the winds of gray paint my world red
And yellow and brown
As the leaves began to fall again

Freezing once again, I went back home
In the car of someone I didn't know
In the happy memories of someone I'll never know
Or ever choose to see again

A despairing year's hopeful ending
As everything I see before me crumbles and rusts
But I see the color between the gray
Even if no one wants to see it that way

days pass

days pass
as i sit here lying in the grass
Loving you
holding every memory near
knowing now how hard it is to hear
those things that were needed to say
but somehow wish for them to leave me
 never to haughnt me
 as though your memory has
 So I watch as days pass
just lying here
wishing dreaming
that maybe one day theyll stop
passing me by

Dreams

If every man could think 
on the lines of probabilities
What could probably be our 
future in terms of possibilities

It seem like our dreams are
extreme to most or a lot of 
our enemies but we were
brighter and smarter than
most of the opposing Epiphanies

This jagged edge was set between
a rock and a hard place

Dreams of a Scarface that left
us with a scared face

Our race's dreams decline and 
leave us in a car chase, we have to
stand straight and dedicate our 
lives people post-haste

We was dreaming down the lines
of motor memory lane rejecting
every pain hey remember me pain

Now is it memory lane or is it 
memory change, It don't matter 
cause in the end we'll all feel
bold with a gold Jesus piece chain

Kill the Memory Of You

Im going to eat this whole bottle of pills
Hoping that your memory is what it kills
Im going to drink this liquor to find
That the memory of you goes away in time

I wish it were so easy to forget you
I wish it were so easy to be free of you
I wish I could just wish my Love for you away
I wish I could wake up to no more pain
But wishing does nothing
Wishing cant make you Love me
Wishing cant make my Love for you fade
Or make me forget about the pain
So...

Im going to eat this while bottle of pills
Hoping that your memory is what it kills
Im going to drink this liquor to find
That the memory of you goes away in time

I want you to be here to say how much you Love me today
I want you to hold me all night long when you know that somethings wrong
I want you to be here everyday, so your picture of me wont fade
I want you to Love me and me alone
But wanting does nothing
Wanting cant make me forget you
Wanting cant bring you here
Or make your picture of me remain clear
So...

Im going to eat this whole bottle of pills
Hoping that your memory is what it kills
Im going to drink this Liquor to find
That the memory of you goes away in time

Im going to eat this whole bottle of pills
Hoping that its me that it kills
Im going to drink this liquor to find
That inside Im beyond dying

First Drop Of Rain

When the first drop of rain falls
you know I will be gone.
When the flowers start to bloom
I will be on my way.
Tell me, darling, years from now 
when the rain comes to fall,
would your memory of me linger,
would you still remember me?

You know I've been so lucky
for having known your love.
I've always loved you dearly,
believe me it is true.
But you see I just have to go
for the wind is calling me.
Let me kiss you one last time,
take this heart of mine.

When the first drop of rain falls
you know I will be gone.
When the flowers start to bloom
I will be on my way.
Tell me, darling, years from now 
when the rain comes to fall,
would your memory of me linger,
would you still remember me?

The days spent in the sunshine
are just but memories now.
The laughter we shared together
is all in the distant past.
Let's be thankful we had each other
for nothing in this world could last.
So let's make love one last time,
spread our wings and fly.

Memory Lane

Come with me, let's remember the days
 when life was easy and free,
  let's turn back the pages of time
   and be young once again.

Can you hear the song playing,
 do you hear its haunting strain?
  do you recall the traces of the music
   coming down memory lane?

My life is so empty, I need to escape,
 those happy days are dead and gone,
  they will never come back again,
   so here I just pretend.

Can you hear the song playing,
 do you hear its haunting strain?
  do you recall the traces of the music
   coming down memory lane?

Yes, it floats down memory lane.

Memory Lane

Tonight as I walk down memory lane, I have no hand to hold, I'm all alone
The garden rose is wilted and dead, like my heart since you went away 
Fall has come here today, with dead leaves falling all around
A broken mirror lies on the ground, with no reflection of you today

As I walk this lane of tears, I see the images of broken hearts
I see those days of golden bliss, turn to days of of blue and gray
The lane is full of war and pain, of two broken hearts torn apart
There's spots of black on the lane, from our days of when we'd stray

{Chorus}
Memory lane covered with tears, it's ditches flooded from our eyes
So many glasses from the face, covered in mud on memory lane
The miles are long so full of sorrow, from that night of sad goodbyes
It seems so long it never ends, filled with images of only pain

There is no sun just dark and blue, not even days of I love you
I look to the sky on memory lane, but only see raining tears
So I turn around and walk right back, gotta get off of this memory lane
I pray someday that I will find, the way to rid me of my fears

{Chorus}
Memory lane covered with tears, it's ditches flooded from our eyes
So many glasses from the face, cover in mud on memory lane
The miles are long so full of sorrow, from that night of sad goodbyes
It seems so long it never ends, filled with images of only pain
