Black Rain

~BLACK RAIN~

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

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

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

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

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

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

A poem for YOU

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

Pledge of love and loyalty

This pledge that l,Ntando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.
Indeed l am well aware of the fact that
the beauty of this pledge does not only lie
in word alone but in action as well.

For that reason in every season
I shall show steadfast commitment
to the implementation of this pledge
with a great deal of astuteness.
I therefore commit myself to be your
devoted and delivering husband for
all the years l shall live with you
on this earth.

I shall treat you with the love and care
you deserve as my wife.
Indeed l shall treat you with
the distinction and dignity
that is befitting of the queen of my heart.
That body, that bone, that breath
shall be my mine to treasure,
for sure;
a dearness to promote and protect
for dear life…and love!
I shall stand by and with you in all the
situations of our life.
If the situation demands that we sail,
sail we shall together.
If the situation demands that we
climb,
climb we shall together.

I know very well what l am getting into:
I am getting into a marriage that is
overflowing with blessings.
This marriage- with our mutual
commitment-
will stand the test of time.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
brims over with a transforming power
of love.

This marriage-with our
mutual commitment –
will transform naivety into maturity
troubles into challenges
pretence into practice
pride into progress
bachelorship into companionship.
I pledge to be your steward and partner
for all times.

I shall value the consultations
and decisions that we make as
husband and wife.
As head of the family I shall do nothing

 

to derail our love train for anything else
least of all for personal and selfish reasons.
Now and forever

I am your lawful and loving husband…
This pledge that l, Nothando, make today serves
as my guideline that I shall follow
happily, ungrudgingly and tirelessly
for the sake of our love life.
Indeed I am well aware of the fact that
the beauty of this pledge does not only
lie in pronouncements but in practice
as well.

For this reason every season
I shall demonstrate untiring love
and loyalty to you;
a love and a loyalty that is a living
embodiment of our marriage vows.
I therefore commit myself to be your
honouring, supportive and loving wife
for all the years l shall live with you.
I shall treat you with the love and care
that you deserve as my husband.
Indeed I shall treat you with
the dignity and nobility that is befitting
of the king of my heart.
On my mind it is always fresh
that I am the flesh of your flesh.
Green or grown

I am the bone of your bone.
I know very well what I am getting into:
I am getting into a relationship that
elevates me into a kingdom of wifehood.
I shall endevour to put my family first
with all the rights, obligations
and privileges that come with wifehood.
I shall endevour to wipe off and ward off
loneliness and lostness from our relationship,
seeking nothing but your companionship;
banking on your stewardship,
sinking together any hardship.
Since you are mine
I shall not do anything else to undermine
our relationship for personal
or egotistical
reasons.
Now and forever
I am your lawful and loving wife…

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)

Rhyme XOX

I just want my summertime
To be at a stand still.
Sometimes, when women cross my mind,
I'm not sure just what to feel.

I'd like to call her friend,
And I want us to mean something.
I can find several, yet in the end,
It seems like all I have is nothing.

So where is the evidence
That says I should move forward?
Show me a sign that's heaven sent;
A point I should move toward.

Secretly Obsessed

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

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

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

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

Is This a Dream

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

YOU'VE CHANGED MY LIFE COMPLETELY

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cant live with them can t live without them

I got a girl
(She wants more)
Call her from work
(She wants more)
Take her to the mall
(She wants more)
Buy her flowers
(She wants more)
Buy her chocolate
(She wants more)
Give her presents
(She wants more)
Pay her bills
(She wants more)
Take her on a cruise
(She wants more)
Introduce her to my parents
(She wants more)
Put a ring on her finger
(She wants more)
Walk her down the aisle
(She wants more)
Hold her hand
(She wants more)
A kiss on the cheek
(She wants more)
A kiss on the lips
(She wants more)
Run my hands through her hair
(She wants more)
Feel her body next to mine
(She wants more)
Uuuh Aaaah, Uuuh Aaaah
(She wants more)
Cuddle every night
(She wants more)
Girls, girls, girls
Can't live with them
Can't live without them

Sweetheart You're in for a Show

You aren’t worthy of the gum on his shoes sweetheart
You think you’re good enough to rip out his heart and walk?

Well honey I’ve got news for you
If that’s what you plan to put him through
Sweetheart you’re in for a show cause

I’d walk through fire to keep him safe
I’d cut you up and throw you away

You think you can just get away?
WELL you can get away now… 
So start walking

I’ve got to say you’ve got guts to run this prank
I must admit you’ve got some nerve you dirty little skank

If you think you can just get away, well baby you’ve thought wrong
Cause sweetie I’m not afraid to get you and HONEY it won’t be long

I’ll hunt you down you just wait and see
So I’d be careful if you were me

I’m not interested in your past life
I’m not much concerned about your strife

Sleep with one eye open little vulture
Cause I’m prepared to take you down dispite your culture

You say it’s wrong? Well I say It’s right
You think you can turn away well I say come on let’s fight

Now that you’ve shown your true colors 
I have this aching strong urge

To knock you off your throne
And maybe break a couple bones

But I know you’re master’s calling
The one below that’s red and crawling

Better luck next time unfaithful thief 
I think it’s best before this gets ugly you leave

I don’t wanna have to hurt you but I will If I must
Every glance from you to him to me I don’t trust

I see right through those cold eyes
The fake smiles disguise your lies

But honey I’m no fool
And I’m coming for you too

If you don’t leave while you still have the chance
You might end up in losing in this death dance

Solipsist

Let the Deicide commence.

You're a voyeur at best!
Your vampiric heart is beating out of your chest!
And you have slayed the ones whom would love you for anything less
Ready to consume the final fragments of innocence,
And for you there is no forgiveness,
On your knees pleading, screaming to a tyrant in the skies;
The father of lies.

I will never be enslaved in your superiority
The people agree: jaded of your false dichotomies.
Know: I will be whomever nature intends to be
Apollo and I will share our dreams,
and you will be forced to see
your failure!

I know who you are...
Readily the first to present your scars
Chained by some despot or mental czar
An emotional homunculus in your mind, behind bars
Reluctant to escape - even when proven fake
Your demented mind - depths no one will penetrate!
 
...And you see me suffering
Not caring of any casualties
Just as long you recieve your safeguard of sympathy
So very wary of the masses and their Anarchy; Liberious ways

Solipsist - Is there no one you can see?
Even if she was presented burning?
Solipsist - Is there no one you can believe?
Even if Sophia was screaming?
Solipsist - Know you have killed and abused me
Imprisoned in your own  personal reality

PLAY-BOY 1

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

I sleep with more chicks than a night-gown

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

For those who don't know that means incomplete

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

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

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

Females fill my atmosphere, they mean the world to me

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

Got gangs of chicks, which one should I bang

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

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

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

Sometimes I need my space, like a vacant lot

I hate being congested, like a nose filled with snot

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

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

ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU

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

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

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

Real Deal Woman

Real Deal Woman
Flit

Now, honey don't you play around 
You know that it ain’t right 
You be the man who brings to me
A man-size... Appetite

Don't need to go so fast
Just let me set the pace
Turn my green light into Red 
There ain’t No need to race

I’m all that you need
You've already won
I’m all that you need
I’m your real deal woman

It’s something we got cooking  
mix it till it hits the spot 
because I’m full of loving
I'll keep it extra hot 

You’re fueling up my heartbeat
My engine starts to roar 
Cos now it's time to show you
You don't need her anymore

I’m all that you need
You've already won
I’m all that you need
I’m your real deal woman

I’m all that you need
You've already won
I’m all that you need
I’m your real deal woman

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!

I TOOK A CHANCE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Black and White

You’ve maddened me to the core 
You singed me with your ferocious fire
We’re opposites… we’ll never integrate  
We can’t blend with each other…
Your love and I’m hate 
We’re contrary to each other…

So don’t even think about 
Getting us back together 
Because without a doubt, 
We don’t click with each other…

So let us go our own way…

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be deleted from my mind…

I’m not the one that should pay the price
You act as if you’re an angel from heaven
But, you’re a fiend…a devil from hell...who needs your advice?
Could someone unchain me from this prison?

So let us prepare for that day…

Fear and bewilderment build inside of our minds
Taking over us…we’re wasting valuable time
Terror and wrath injects into our veins…time starts to unwind 
I’m regaining my glory…this moment feels so sublime  

You think you’re innocent?
I can sense your guilt…bleeding through you
Do you live to feed me anguish? 
Don’t deny it…you crafty demon…no wonder I feel blue

Let’s get ready for battle…
I’ll watch you decay…
IT’S PAY BACK TIME . . .
Taste my fury and my agony 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to be defeated…

I scream before nightfall
I close my eyes to kiss my demise
I want to disappear 
Scratch away my desolation
Wipe away my tears…
Spewing out of my eyes…like a waterfall
Tonight, there will be dismay
There will be suffering 
After sundown…
Failure and glory will expose like stars in the midnight sky
Who will earn the crown? 
No one knows in silent wars – who can reveal the light in goodbye
  
Why are we black and white?
Are you too afraid to know the reason why? 

Everything’s black and white
You love to torture me with your deceptive devices 
We’re playing this chess match – let’s fight!
Tonight, you’re going to pay the prices
You’re going to suffer alone…

TO BEAR THE WEIGHT OF HIM



On a heavy pour between rain and rain
she throws her tattered garments aside,
and runs barefoot into the woods
wet with the blood of clouds…
against the humid, resplendent trees 
where sanctuary comes, vanilla sweet,
powdered sand glitters of new dreams
like rhinestones slippery between her toes.


Here, away from the ruthless slaps of pain
where marital veil is torn,
she loosens her hair and calms gripped sighs
burying his pierced curses on the ground…
safe among islets of  grass, forced not to yield 
to his self- indulgent poundings,
moist eyes gaze for a moment at the soft light
rendering herself graced in the tincture of hours…


A ripened shrub offers a balm under its shade
drying her wounded limbs gently, to rest awhile;
yet she must return to night’s pouring rain…

to once more bear the weight of him.

................................
~ Around the world, at least one in every three women 
has been beaten …abused during her lifetime by a member
of the family.
~Battered women stay because of fear, lack of own funds,
   custody battle, others.. see author's notes

DREAM WORLD

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

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

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

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

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

STASHING CASH 2

Where I'm from we don't do debts, fronts, or take tabs
They don't understand nothing but stashing cash
Put that money on the head, you don't need a mask
They don't understand nothing but stashing cash
How is a broke fool gon' try and smash
They don't understand nothing but stashing cash

Money on my mind like bread on a sandwich

I run the city, they're the lights, I'm the switch

I stand for what's mine, never see me slip and fall

I'm runnin' the race, you're a baby with a slow crawl

My cash stay on point, like a sharpened pencil

Try 'n' copy my style, you gon' need mo' than a stencil

I don't be's in the trap, buy my workers put-in overtime

Feds can't catch me, never see me committin' crime

That's why from time to time I shoot 'em a raise

And tell 'em to stash cash for those rainy days

If money talk, then there's nothing to say

If B.S walk, none of ya' fools can stay

My money talkin' for me, betta' yet, it's in a conversation

Ya' look like money; make money, nice observation

They say the love of money's the root of all evil

So how much money will it take to really love people

Too Close

Hello...It's me again
I don't need nothing at all
I was in the neighborhood
Too close to call

Guess I'm late for work again
My boss is climbing the wall
But I've got a good excuse
Too close to call

Too close to your sweet lips
That's where I love to be
Too close ain't close enough
When it comes to you and me

On your mark...get set...go
'Race you down the hall
We never wonder who gets there first
Too close to call

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

STASHING CASH 1

Where I'm from we don't do debts, fronts, or take tabs
They don't understand nothing but stashing cash
Put that money on the head, you don't need a mask
They don't understand nothing but stashing cash
How is a broke fool gon' try and smash
They don't understand nothing but stashing cash

My Green could fill-up a Bay, need a few Packers

Haters look, fold and crumble like Ritz-crackers

Money comes and goes, but you know mine stays

Like a well-trained dog, sometimes it even lays

Money brings power, respect, gotta' have the jewels

Call me a handy-man, I stay with my tools

I know it sounds messed-up, but it's money-over-everything

My weight's been up, you just started like a flower in spring

My money keeps flippin', like some Burgers on a grill

Money on me heavy, like a work-out, makes me sweat fo'real

Active, got a million hustles, I'm motivated and dedicated

Call me and money happily married, we can't be separated

Not talking movies, but I bet you ain't seen this in a while

My money's long, go 'head, call it the green mile

Long as I'm stashing cash, I'll always come out on top

Like a junkie smokin' dope, me making money won't stop

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

Garden Rose

Written August 21, 2013


There's a girl in the garden
She's messing with your rose bed
Plucking weeds out from your head
And watering the seeds in your bed

But where will she wander
When the roses are dead
Will she come back for more
When they turn back to red

She can run all alone
Write this story in stone
On concrete slabs
Of skin and bone

Miles

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

PLAYER 1

I spit game proper, like a pro-batter, I got the right stroke
I work deals, like it's Black-Friday, I'm far from broke
I can't help but make the girl proud and gay
Want some of my time, like takes, you too gotta' pay

She don't act up, but she's so bad, discipline

Put her in time-out, punishment, a great beatin'

When I'm hittin' her good, she calls me daddy

I'm her trophy, showcase me, friends wish they had me

Too easy, always give it up, her man call it robbery

Termite, loves wood, told me have my log handy

Do what I order, like a puppet, no-strings-attached

Not a crook, but like a purse, your chick got snatched

Not intimate, gold-digger, money makes her cum

It's me, her, and a bag of money, three-sum

You got flushed-down-the-drain, but I'm the crap, feces

You're gone, don't make 'em like me, endangered species

Got fire-wood, leave the 'coochie' smoking like a Newport

Done with you, on to the next, long stick, but life's short

Get attached, space myself, I come around less

Bad sex, back-stabbing, bull, I ain't with the B.S

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…

PISTOL READY 1

Hood fellow, pull her hair like I do the trigger
Plenty of cash, don't care if she's a gold-digger
She broke-up with her ex and got me, lost and found
Get in bed, take out my pistol, let off a round
Shoot her up, shoot her up, bang, bang
Blowing on my mic', the best song she ever sang

The chick's riding me, she started to pant

She dropped down low, started giving brain, transplant

She's eating that wood, like she's a termite

Got something to quench her thirst, but it's not sprite

I think I might go down-town, to get some dessert

She's like a water gun when she climax, squirt

Always takes showers, but she's oh so dirty

Started at three, it's going on four-thirty

Make sure I meet her needs, you're a minute man

She say I got flavor, but you're kinda' bland

I'm speeding, you get home at six, it's rush-hour

Gotta' clean up for you, hit it in the shower

She's so wet, it's like swimming in the ocean

Hop out the shower, dry off, wipe her down with lotion

Starts to get upset, said she wanted me to stay

Ain't in Florida, but she might go M.I.A

NEED AN UMBRELLA

Dancing in the rain, drops on my face;
Not in a rush, I love this place.
Need an umbrella? I say not today
The kid inside, just wants to play

Jump in the puddles, really big splash
Childhood wonder, all day bash
Laugh out loud, as it's pouring down
I'm young again, on a merry-go-round

Soaking wet clothes, I'm such a mess
I really don't care, I must confess
Skipped work this morning, to be right here
As soon as I heard, skies wouldn't be clear

We grow up too fast, and we lose our awe
For the miracles in nature, Heaven's spa
I let my son skip school, he's making "A's"
To celebrate youth, make memorable days

So I'll pass on the umbrella, see my boy smile
Won't worry about work, or focus on style
Yeah.. just for today, I'll be a kid again
My son will never forget, what a day it's been!

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.

'Little bird, what troubles thee'

Little bird, what ails thee
      is it the bread in your belly
little bird, what troubles thee
      is it the bread of misery

is it the bitterness in your heart, 
     or the offense you can't forgive
is it the anguish that sets you apart, 
     or the hurt that holds you captive 
 
is it the cancer of bitter love, 
     or the loss of deserved affection 
is it the cruel withdrawal of 
     his tenderness and compassion 

life is much too brief
      and youthful love's even briefer still,
your forestalled relief 
      keeps you from seeing His eternal will

what befalls you 
      is neither unshared nor a mystery
God sheds tears for you
      in the midst of your painful agony

little bird, what ails thee
      is it the bread in your belly
little bird, what troubles thee
      is it the bane of misery

Love Distance

I love you a lot, but I do not see you much
When I see you face to face my day goes great.
I think about you every night before I sleep and pray that everything goes well for you,
I hope to see you very soon
Our love is distant, but our hearts are close.

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.

The Journey

I'm on a journey now,
Destination unknown,
Into the world outside my home;
A path the sun has never shown 

I' won't be there so soon,
It's gonna take a little while;
Like the distance to the moon
But can't be measured by the mile

Through the winds of neptune I try to see,
Barefoot across the burning ground.
Keep moving on that's the key
To keep my bones from being found

Across the oceans of this world
I swim the distance with a salty tongue.
I fight against the curl.
Upon my muse my fate is hung.
C.L.Baker©2013

There's nothing such as time.
This journey's ending soon. 
I see the final stretch to climb
In the shadows of the moon.

I came so far from all I'd known. 
Through misty shores I see what's true.
I've found another home.
I journeyed here for you

A Used Heart Playing The Blues

This instrument called my heart That used to play love songs just for you Is now old,worn and tattered Barely even able to carry a tune Beautiful love songs it used to play Have now been turned to blues From a woman I used to love That has torn my heart in two Melodies that would always flow From a heart that was always so true Now broken it hurts to even play From a heart that's been so abused Through loneliness a heart gets worn Without all the love it was so used to Leaving beautiful memories that are now forlorn Almost unable to even play the blues A sad song will still play on Through these words that I call the blues From a heart that used to play love songs With all my heart,that were just for you

Welcome to the Planet

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

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

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

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

Isolation

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

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

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

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.

REALLY WANNA SAY HELLO GOODBYE -Song Lyrics

REALLY WANNA SAY HELLO (Goodbye)

Where did you go, you who just passed me by and left?
Are you doing fine, at a place without me by your side?
Hoping you'll come back, the times I've waited for you
I'll let it go now, I'll forget you now.

The beautiful times we had, they're all memories now
The tears I shed when I missed you like crazy
Hoping you'll come back, time stood still
I'll let you go and leave now, goodbye.

Couldn't you find it, the road that leads back to me? 
Should I wait a little while more, should I wait here a little longer?
Hoping you'll come back, I waited all this while
I'll let it go now, I'll end it for real.

My love for you that I held on so tightly, is slowly dissipating
The me that went crazy missing you, is gradually changing
Hoping you'll come back, time has stood stagnant
I should erase it all now, for real.

My love, it ends right here, this never-ending yearning 
Stuck in my throat, I couldn't say it
Those heartbreaking words of parting
All my beautiful memories of you, it's leaving me right now.

Like falling tears, my love is slowly dissipating
The me that went crazy missing you, is gradually changing
Hoping you'll come back, time stood stagnant
I should erase it now, for real.

Should erase it now?
I should forget you now, goodbye.. :(

TAKE-OVER 2

Streets made me, that's why I bleed cement
Your hour has come, your time is spent
My strap spoils fools, expiration date
Class was in, you din't participate

Raised your hand, it's good to ask questions

Pay attention, don't cost much, even in recessions

Beginning of the end, this is a take-over

If you're sluggish, better move over

Came from the bottom, now I'm elavatin'

Fully focused, like I'm testin'

Keep my eyes on the prize, ignore distractions

Reflexes like a cat, no late reactions

Ain't playin' in movies, but I'm quick to act

I'm an over-achiever, I never lacked

Like an all-in pot, I gave it everything

Married to the game, I got it a ring

Devoted to money, never catch me cheatin'

To me, getting paid is better than skeetin'

Hustling is like Viagra for making cash

At times it gets hard, and it makes it last

Dear Lover

Written September 8, 2013


Hey dear lover
Can you make me a believer in another
We both know that it's killing us this way
'Cause the ends of the earth still move
And the falling leaves dance in circles
All around you
Cutting holes in the paper
On which I write this letter
Saying, "I really hope that this gets better"
For the sake of involved
Before this binding resolution gets resolved

But I don't mind chasing thunder
Through the darkest nights
But if I never find the light
Then I just might lose my sight, over you
But what's the use
You've only caused me more and more abuse
That's why I write this letter
Saying, "why'd I ever think that it'd get better"

Ride The Wind

Written February 24, 2012


One too many times
Our love has been unkind
To the rigors and chills of the snow
The streets they meet
Intersecting the heat
But the cold will blow without heed

To rekindle the flame
Must sound quite insane
But it's all I have left in this world
Yet to feed from the hand
Of another's demands
Could lead to the start of the fall

Ride the wind
Wherever it goes
Don't ask it questions
You don't want to know
The wind will carry you home

12 days of kiss-mas

On the 12th day of kiss-mass my true love sent to me
12 dirty undies
11 socks a stinking
10 shoes a humming
9 shirts for pressing

7 days of take-out boxes
6 flagons of beer
5 D V D's
4 mischievous children
3 dozen wine bottles
2 ex partners
and an engagement ring under the tree

I'd Do Anything: Our Bond of Friendship

I regret using you like a futile tool...
I'm feeling the remorse 
replaying over and over again..

I'd do anything...for you
I'd sacrifice my life...for you
I could hike Mount Everest...for you
I'd lift up your weeping spirits...for you
I'd walk on hot coals...for you
I'd do the impossible...for you
It's true...
I'm positively sure that 
I love you...
I'd give up my life...for you
You still don't have a clue,
Do you?

I'm glad you accepted my apology once more

I promise I won't break our bond of friendship

You make me feel perfect deep inside...
Trust me - I didn't mean to make you cry...
You make me feel at ease while we go along with the ride
You help me gain more strength 
You make me satisfied with your mirth 
You make my once broken, wingless spirit 
soar .                               .                      .                   .                                 .                    .

I'd sacrifice my life...for you
I could hike Mount Everest...for you

I'd walk on hot coals...for you
I'd do the impossible...for you
It's true...
I'm positively sure that

I'd give up my life...for you
You still don't have a clue,

You make my spirit soar anew...

PISTOL READY 2

Hood fellow, pull her hair like I do the trigger
Plenty of cash, don't care if she's a gold-digger
She broke-up with her ex and got me, lost and found
Get in bed, take out my pistol, let off a round
Shoot her up, shoot her up, bang, bang
Blowing on my mic', the best song she ever sang

Got flavor, cold with all this ice, like a 'Slurpee'

Got something for your chick to drink, she slurps me

Definitely ain't praying, but she gets on her knees

Her head game is fire, nine-hundred-degrees

It's like she's educating me, gives me good brain

While she's down there, I pull her hair, like a horse's mane

She's a vampire, sucking on the neck of my second head

Not the one on my shoulders, but the one used in bed

She told me to eat her out, went down and bit it

She can't stand violence, but loves the way I hit it

Beat the 'Coochie' up, bedroom turned into a boxing arena

Call it domestic violence, no court, no subpoena

Riding me, I'm thinking 'bout gettin' her a saddle

We rocking the boat right now, ain't got a paddle

Making a movie, this the best part, 'bout to climax

She loves when I come over, got everything her man lacks

'Time I came around you'd blown this town
With some guy you used to know

Now I hear you're loose and if I can
Only say this right somehow
I was a little slow to grow up I know
But I'm ready for you now

Since you've been gone i think a light came on
I got a grip on where it's at
And I've slicked down all the wild hairs
Underneath this cowboy hat

If a second chance on me is something
Your heart will allow
Well that's one bet you never regret
'Cause I'm ready for you now

I'm ready....... to hold you tight
And I'm ready....... to stay home at night
I promise........ to keep those solemn vows

I'm ready........ to take a stand
Yeah I'm ready......... to be your man
if you're willing honey...I'm ready for you now

A Little Window

I have a little window 
In the home I call my heart;
The panes are all kept sparkling
And the curtains drawn apart,
For on the sill, a shining,
Burns a lantern, soft and warm,
Marking a traveler's pathway
Through the darkness to the morn.
I have a little doorway
In the home I call my heart;
The stoop is swept of evil
And a prayer is all of art
That decorates the entry
Where the lamp flame spills its light.
May it be where e're you wander
In the blackness of the night,
The prayer will gently draw you
Till you see the lantern's flame;
Then, closer, to the doorway
Where you hear me breathe your name.
No need to knock, my darling,
Though you've come from, oh, so far;
You will find I am still waiting
And the door is never barred.

With lustful hands around your hips

With lustful hands around your hips
and my loving thoughts not so chaste,
let together be locked our lips
as passion compels our mutual haste.

This night we are an ardent pair
as I now do my very best
to undress your body and dare 
to expose your white, naked breasts.

We are filled with impassioned zeal
to be as one body tonight
without need to hide or conceal
whether we are wrong or right.

This night our defiant love dares
to at last defeat its final test
so Love's highest law then declares
our union greater than Fate's behest!

PLAYER 2

I spit game proper, like a pro-batter, I got the right stroke
I work deals, like it's Black-Friday, I'm far from broke
I can't help but make the girl proud and gay
Want some of my time, like takes, you too gotta' pay

Like a hole, she do nothing but dig me

I'm like Kurmit the frog, she's miss Piggy

She can't leave me alone, like a mother to an infant

Like soft soil, I step in her life, leave an imprint

I handle her with care, like a fragile antique plate

When she express her feelings, I pretend I can relate

Never catch me cheatin', I'm a true player

I run her, if she's a city, I'm the mayor

Your chick left with me, not coming back--runaway

You ain't do her right, I took her in like a stray

Chicks throwin' me that pussy-cat, do I look like a vet?

They call me Super-soaker, the way I get 'em wet

My damsels come in pairs, like a set of earings

I don't put up with their problems,

I ain't a Judge handling hearings

Want your chick back, take her, can't get a receipt

Funny, how I got you off rhythm, moving to my beat

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..

Please Help Me, Re-lyric

Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.
You're just so damn sexy,
That's why I'm hittin' on you.
You don't have to love me,
Some good sex will do.
Please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You.

Yes, you turned me on
When I saw you walk in...
The face of an Angel,
A body just made for Sin.
Now, I may be real horny,
But one thing is true:
What would satisfy me, Girl
Would be to satisfy You.

So please help me, I've fallen
In Lust with You; 
And I hope that you're fallin'
In Lust with me too;
But if not, then please fake it,
Please don't leave me "blue"...
Please help me, I've fallen
In  Lust  with  You.

In Bloom

Written July 29, 2013


The wind blows the rainbows down
Turns your frown upside down
Then spins it back around

The sun hides the moon
Underneath its coat in bloom
The flowers came late this June

The rain in a teardrop
Falls like dew from a leaf
When she looks at me

See that look upon her face
Used to take her to the stars
Now she's headed back from Mars

Now that Venus loves her more
Wouldn't throw her to the floor
Like before

i wish i knew how to cry

i wish i knew how to cry
then indeed i would do so
i would sit down
break down like in hymn
lyrically, rhythmically wail
let the tears flood out
empty the soul
cool my puffy cheeks
i would cry till lord came back

you ask why, my brother, sister
it is simple
i would cry for the beggar in the dusty streets
hopeless, 
homeless,
left to wallow in the whims of desperation

i would cry for the empty stomachs
the hungry wails of starving children
the drooped bare breasts of mother
with no fodder for the toddlers

i would cry for peace, or for lack of it
a country thrown into chaos
a country whose agenda is mismatched
propaganda, ill motives
politics of hatred, 
fear left right center

i would cry for armageddon
for salvation of souls 
for brother turning against brother
for the desolation of minds
dialects fragmenting souls
blood spill
tears shed
love lost
homes crushed
death...
yes,
i would cry for my country Kenya, 
if only i knew how.

Nobody Knows

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

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

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

......and still nobody knows.

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

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

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

......and still nobody knows.

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

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

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

......and still nobody knows.

...and still nobody knows.

Leave me alone

I cant sleep tonight
Something just don't feel right
In my mind i see the events
That started this stupid pretence 
this relationship isnt enough
always fighting about the same stuff
Before I do as I please
I'll say before I leave

Here we go
Started when we were alone
fixed together out of place
Need you now too get out my face
because I need to be on my own
So just leave me alone

Don't bother ringing my phone
Or turning up at my home
Our time just slipped away
It's time to call it day
The fights have left me sore
Don't know if i can take any more
Bruised and broken from your burn
always asking when will I learn?

I know seeing you will be tough
but I need to pick up my stuff
I let you keep the books and the birds
even when we ran out words
Call it souvinour of when we had our day
treat them better than you did me I pray
I've let go our relationship illusion
But I'm still getting past all the confusion

Here we go
Started we were alone
Fixed together out of place
Need you now, to get out of my face
I need to be just on my own
So just leave me alone

Don't bother ringing my phone
Or turning up at my home
Our time just slipped away
It's time to call it day
The fights have left me sore
Don't know if i can take any more
Bruised and broken from your burn
always asking when will I learn?

Keep on walking it's over and done
this is all that we can become
A broken bottle, a finished book
Done all we could, we're off the 


Here we go
Started we were alone
Fixed together out of place
Need you now, to get out of my face
I need to be just on my own
So just leave me alone

Don't bother ringing my phone
Or turning up at my home
Our time just slipped away
It's time to call it day
The fights have left me sore
Don't know if i can take any more
Bruised and broken from your burn
always asking when will I learn?

How Do I Love You So

In this wretched and dark place,
it's the only world I can show my face.
Ashamed of my love,
A past full of disgrace.
And yet all I want is to see your face.
But it's something I've longed to
erase.
Why do I love you so? 
These crazy feelings they need to go.
You have my heart racing like i need to show,
my love for you but I just really don't know 
how I love you so.
It's been a long wild trip,
but this I must rip.
And thats you from my heart
Yea that'd be a better start.
But here comes that thing again 
you make me want to sing and then
You see right through me
do you know what you do to me
All these things I've done you see
Fueling my insanity.
Make me want to fall apart,
Spill knowledge from this broken heart.
All I ever wanted was to be set free,
Can you really not see all of what you've done to me?

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

Blow Up The Sky

Another storm bringing the cold hard rain.
We've planned and toiled just to wash it away.

We've started a ditch to let water drain.
All we could manage was to dig halfway.

We put on coats and walked separate ways.
Wherever we went, clouds split and they rained.

We flooded the crops of neighbors and friends.
We've left a path from our house to road's end.

We joined back our clouds but the damage was done,
making islands to cut off everyone.

The more we tried not to, the more it would rain,
making less space for islands to contain.

Once solutions reached impossible highs,
we got in our heads to blow up the sky.

Little did we know the solution was one,
to share our raincoat and pray for the sun.

But we were young and knew even better.
Go out with glory. Target the weather.

With one final blow we could end the rain,
but, along with it, the sun and it's rays.

We couldn't remember things we would miss,
Starry nights, clear bright skies, the sun's warm kiss.

Even more so, the power of our love.
The power that once harnessed skies above.

Once we had our aim at the pitch black sky,
I held her hand, and we started to cry.

I hesitated, paused by sudden light.
I wrapped her in my coat and held her tight.

The moments that passed, turned black into grey.
The clouds in the sky began to obey.

The worst was over, the sea dried away,
and the first of many sunny bright days.

The Fire

Like all things that appear innocent, fire is in the pit of all.
Like a the clear sky before the rain fall, Like a rainbow after the storm
Our love was pure but the fire raged inside. 
Was it just lust or were we  in love
no one could of save both of us, Indestructible is what we thought we were but our weaknesses got the best. As we burned and burned with out the might to stop the  death that was awaiting us. 
What we thought to be happy was actually the manic of our affair. The memories will remain until we have the strength to detain, detain ourselves from each other, We may not have the strength to destroy what made us but we can stop this torture that we create
… Glass shatters just as our hearts when we walked away, when we walked away from all we thought was Important all we fought for. The fight was long and hard but even we couldn't save each other it was destine we were bound to be destroyed 
Like a fire when everything burns to the ground,When all is thought to be lost
we have to find hope without the weight of our destruction haunting us 
like a wild fire out control that exactly how we were 
it was our fate for our candle to burn out 
to burn the memories that might remain to burn all that attaches us to one another  like a fire we had to move on and still have hope that one day even with out each other we would be happy just maybe we could happy without each other one day, and just like a fire we were no more we had to burn before we created death and let others mourn..

I like your love

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

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

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

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

Love Facing Twin Impossibility

Love facing twin impossibility
Comprises all we two may ever own;
Hoping against hope, we walk sep'rate paths--
You, yours...I, mine...yet, never quite alone.
Although our paths seem harshly parallel,
Our feet with weary waiting shod,
"T is all we have to conquer our despair,
This dream in anguish shared midst fearsome odds.
I cannot force my heart to tear itself
From one whose soul with mine so fiercely twines;
I'll finish life and lie beneath cold stone
Before I find another love like thine.
Is this too great a price which we must pay,
To suffer long and know so little bliss?
Ah, I would gladly double tribute pay
To say I've known a love as true as this.
Though to the road ahead no end appears,
It may be, love, that in a little while
We'll top twin hills to view our promised land
Where two paths race toward union, and we'll smile.
For now, I know another watches guard,
And I must trust Him with your love till then;
His guiding angel walks between our forms
To clasp my hand and yours to journey's end.

Redemption

If I pass through Gethsemane
To writhe in cold, dark agony,
If Fear's hounds track me through the night
Till like a wounded fawn in fright
I thrash through forests, strange, unknown,
That seem so far away from home,
Would love in me grow weak and die?
Would stones of hatred be piled high
To mark the plot, engraved by Shame,
"'T was here that love at last was slain!"
Would my heart lie entombed, content,
Or would the stones by Love be rent,
And Love o'er Hate triumphant pour
Because the sting of death Christ bore?

Or if my love were crucified,
Rejected, left to bleed and die,
If Sorrow pierced my fainting heart
With ev'ry bitter, burning dart,
I pray that love would stand the test;
That while my soul Grief did molest,
I would not stoop to hate the foe,
But yield to pain that Love might flow.
Would Love in me refuse to die
And live again though crucified?
Oh, that the seed felled by Hate's cry
Through suffering would multiply
And rise to reap the greater store
Because my Love your sorrows bore.

Look at your beautiful self

Look at your beautiful self

You know you’re the best in this wide world
But you just won’t look at yourself
You let all the losers grab onto your heart
As they steal from you all of your wealth
You don’t see the wonderful essence
That someone like me sees in you
And you don’t see the fact that I love you
Cause you’re such a beautiful you.

You let all the world push your button
And yes they will patronize you
But you have a wonderful aura
And it’s such a shame that they do
My Darling stand up and be noticed
And show the wide world who you are
Then you’ll know that the you, you saw once
Was wrong, you’re a beautiful star.

My darling just let your heart guide you
You hear what they want you to hear
They need you to blame for their evil
So they make you confused and unclear
So let us both stand there together
And show them we’re one of a kind
And we stand united in true love
As both heed our hearts not our minds.

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

AUTUMN DAYS

Autumn days
Leaves are falling from the trees
Time's past so fast I can't believe
Been greatly blessed through all the years

Bodies age
Can't do what we used to do
Pain free days are all too few
Yet our grateful minds are still so clear

What an amazing journey we've had
Yes, an incredible life we've had
As husband and wife not one day bad
What an amazing journey we've had

Memories made
Our children blossomed in the Light
The Spring and Summer were so bright 
Happy sounds from family filled the ears

Love never fades
Though Winter's wind is in the air 
These autumn trees will soon be bare
Our hearts so full, reflective tears

What an amazing journey we've had
Yes, an incredible life we've had
Cherished every moment as mom and dad
What an amazing journey we've had

As husband and wife not one day bad
What an amazing journey we've had!

Relationships

They disappear and reappear, relationships are so severe
I knew you lost all hope, from the moment that you shed those tears
I can be your superman, my love will take away your fear
I can be your man, tell the haters not to interfere

Love is set before you, open eyes and look up in your mirror
I know the days are storming, keep on fighting til the days get clear
I tell you that I love you and as well as many compliments
Making you my girl means more than all of my accomplishments.

My heart is always yours and I hope that you acknowledge this
We will always make it through, even struggles won’t be stopping this
We will always find a way, just me and you like castaways
Find a place, a hideaway, just me and you can run away

Get a plane and fly away or get a boat and sale waves
We can go wherever just as long as I can see your face
Tell me one more time, what you think, and we can settle this
You can be my girl and I’ll be feeling like a medalist

We Can't Break

You’d look at me some day not really knowin’
If we’d keep goin’ on this way
We know we have a good thing worth holdin’   
Don't see us at the point of foldin’
We know we’re each other’s daily pleasure
But so afraid of forever

My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow
Don’t stop to think right now
There’s too much at stake
Babe we can’t break, no no

You stare at me always smiling
That yearning look in your eyes
The way you make me laugh makes me tremble
Makes me feel that I’m your prize
Let’s give ourselves without reservation
Want all future moments with you
Doesn't have to be about persuasion
We’ll cherish all the things that we do
 
I feel myself shakin’, I feel your heart achin’
My heart is poundin’, breakin’ up we can’t allow

Stop Breaking My Heart

Take my hand

drag me in 

a world of beauty and wonder

make me feel

like I'm you're only girl

push me away

kiss a girl with a pretty face

and let me know we're through




So will you

stop breaking my heart?

If you love me

you wouldn't let me fall apart

baby please tell me

what we're doing

I gotta know

where it is you want me to go




you say you wanna stay friends

but you still love to take my breath away

every single day

I wait for the night Wehre i won't cry

eoshing you could change your mind

but when you do I wait for goodbye




so will you

stop breaking my heart?

If you love me

baby please tell me

Gypsy child

Gypsy child.

Oh gypsy child, so wild of heart
Who stormed into my life
When deep within that freedom call
It pierced me like a knife
You set the soul of me afire, my being came alive
And those many worn out parts of me
Away you did them drive.

You entered in my prison door and pointed out the way
The path that leads me through the dark into the light of day
You showed me that another world
Was there so pure and bright
You took my hand oh gypsy child, and lead me through the night.

This child so wild my gypsy child
She gave my life some joy
She took my pain and made me sane
My fears she did destroy
She let me see the mystery that I was born into
And she opened up the gates of love
And let me walk on through.

Thank you

Thank you for a good lesson,
For the times when you left me alone,
For all my sleepless nights in your house,
For the love that wasn't true,
For the smiles that never warmed me up,
For the looks that never made me stay,
For the realizing that there was nothing
To fight for.

Thank you for your promises that
You have broken in time,
For the words that were ugly,
For the comments that did hurt,
For your screamings, putting me
To work for never saying me
This simple “Thank you!”
Because I thank you.

Romantic Feelings

Thus thou be kind to let me be
This heart explodes if not said to thee
Words spoken as true as love
By Jove! Ye art sent from up above

Those sweet smiles that make thy world go round and round
Just one night thine heart was not found
Because la belle dame named
Just took it on her arm

Oh I think I have gone mad
To pursue that love I never had
‘Cause I know we art two worlds away
How I wish I could longer stay

Though it may this heart ever throb
But I admit there is a locked doorknob
I can’t enter, stay outside
At that very moment I could have died

I will dream tonight f that very key
And dwell in the world of hyperreality
So that I can subtly see
The thoughts of being together; you and me

Nevertheless is nevertheless does
Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the Menu

Evolution through revolution negating convolution

Oh Walker's Will and Lander's Way

Oh walker’s will and lander’s way…
Did not we grow in love’s dismay?
while wandering by the garden path
that led us to “the grapes of Wrath”
but also by the Lake of Tow ....and woe
still... on we wandered … did farther go
to where the wake of Willing’s way
slammed us like the tides…to our final days
against the side of Trivial’s Pass
no easy going, unto the last

So Now! Away my love!... turn now away!
The sky is dark... tis end of day

no more to walk hand and hand
no circle to be broken 
no promise in sands
of time...ticking time ...that has now stopped
the boom has struck... love's hammer dropped

Let us land …in this peaceful place
in this subjective joy… in an objective space

we journeyed long unto the bend
of bow and break...relent and lend
but even we must greet our circle's end

To Infinity and Beyond

Astronomy is asinine,

As far as I'm concerned,

Believe me when I say
my thoughts of you

than the stars in heaven
and my love for you
is as infinite
as the universe.

If you can't respect me and my wishes how do you expect to learn the value of respect

If you can't be honest with me how do you expect to know how to tell the truth

If you can't be happy with me in general how do you expect to be happy with yourself first

If you can't be loyal to me how do you expect to trust yourself and be loyal to your wishes

If you can't look at me in my eyes and see my pain how do you even expect to see your own

If you can't accept me for who I am how do you expect to learn to accept yourself

i should have Listened

Please tell me if it's true 
Is it possible that you 
Have lied to me again 
With no reason in the end 

Left me broken hearted 
Achieving what you wanted 
Is this the way you play? 
The girls that come your way? 

chrous 

I should have listened to my Mother, 
My sister and my brother 
When they said I would be stuck 
With a man I could not trust 

I know that life's not fair 
There are times when we must bear 
That life is not for me 
I'd better if I'm free 

chrous 

I should have listened to my mother, 
My sister and my brother 
When they said I would be stuck 
With a man I could not trust 

Sometimes the answer is where 
You least expect to find it 
My family was always there 
I just didn't realize it 

chrous 

I should have listened to my Mother, 
My sister and my brother 
When they said I would be stuck 
With a man I could not trust

To You My Soul Is Bound

I have wondered long on how it would feel
If true love I ever found
Would I know in my heart that this is the one
To whom my soul would be bound -
Is it to you that my soul is bound?

How should I respond to the words you speak
Can I know whether they are sincere
Am I able to tell by the sound of your voice
As you whisper in my ear?

When you look at me so lovingly
With that twinkle in your eye
It stirs my heart and lights my soul
There are times it makes me cry

I am overwhelmed at the depth of your love
How tender you are to me
And I think to myself - can this really be true
Or is it just fantasy?

Are my fears misplaced -  Do I wonder too much?
Am I using my doubts as a crutch?
Should I open my mouth and reveal to you
Just how deeply my heart has been touched?

I'll let fear and doubt go now - and trust in our love
For I know I have finally found
A treasure of love burning bright within me
And to you, my soul will be bound
Yes.  It's to you my soul is bound!

I Wasn't There to Fall In love

I wasn't expecting for anything...
Then i saw you, and you change everything...
I wasn't there to capture your eyes...
I wasn't there to fall in love...
And yet, you took my breath away...
But your heart is taken by someone else...
And you came after me...
You played with our hearts...
And broke both of our hearts...

I wasn't there to fall in love...
And yet, you took my breath away...
You took my heart away...
You took my soul away...
And left me with nothing...
you left me with huge question mark over my head...
Asking myself why!...

I wasn't there to fall in love...
Yet, you broke my heart...
You broke me while I'm still mending myself...
Still healing my heart...
It takes forever to fix it...
But a second to fall for someone like you...
And now you barely look at me...

I wasn't there to fall in love...
And i wasn't looking for one...
But my heart chose you...
And it can't seem to let you go...
I try to look strong and pretend to get over you...
But deep inside, its tearing me apart...
Yes I'm weak more than you ever know...
And I'm not gonna show it to you...
At least not in front of you...

I wasn't there to fall in love...
And yet, I fell for you..

Time's Up

I don’t know how to tell you
How I really fell
Too scared to hurt your feelings
To say it aint real

I’ve tried to say many times 
But you just won’t listen
To the truth that haunts me now
Not to say is a crime

You see

I’m fed up of falling for
Your sweet talk lines
I don’t want to be with you
I’ve shown you all the signs

Your time is up now
We just won’t work
Please don’t come back around
Not again

Time’s up

I’m sorry if it hurts you
But I can’t help it
This is how I truly feel
It’s time to be true

I don’t have love in my heart
When I look right at you
I just don’t feel the same way
I need a brand new start

You see 

I’m fed up of falling for
Your sweet talk lines
I don’t want to be with you
I’ve shown you all the signs

Your time is up now
We just won’t work
Please don’t come back around
Not again

Time’s up

You’re out of luck
I’ve had enough
I’m out of love
And this is tough

I’m fed up of falling for
Your sweet talk lines
I don’t want to be with you
I’ve shown you all the signs

Your time is up now
We just won’t work
Please don’t come back around
Not again

Time’s up
Time’s up
I said your
Time’s up

SUNFLOWER-THE SUN

When you come home late
drunk
stinking
vulgar
i open up the door
warm your food
take off your clothes
i carry you to bed.
Wake you early in the morning
run you a hot bath
Choose and iron your clothes
Make your coffee
pack an apple and snack
make sure my man will be fresh and looking fine.
      
      Five years and counting,
      simple words like thank you,no more
      the doting look you used to give me,no more
      flowers and candy,no more
      you are beautiful,no more
      phone calls,diner,family vacations, no more
      am proud to be your man,no more
      i love you,no more
      thank you for loving me,no more
      the kissing,the hugging,the sex,i ain't getting none no more. 

When you said you wanted me home full time
i dropped my career to take care of the kids.
Though i love a little flesh on me
i trim every time you say am getting thick.
Baby every time you say it ain't enough
i always make it up to you
when you say jump
i never question why
i just fly all the way.
     
            (repeat Vs 2)
             
I keep my body tight
decorate the house as you like
make sure the food is divine
remind the kids what great a man you are
Oh!i even pretend that i am alright.

Baby each minute of everyday without hesitation
i do
will do whatever it takes to make you proud
i sacrifice
forfeit
let you trample all over me so you shine.

      the kissing,the hugging,the sex,i ain't getting none no 

Day nor night do you appreciate me anymore.
You don't see me no more.

Baby i wanna know
why,when and how did i stop being your woman
your best friend and sweetness in life.
why,when and how
did i stop being your wife?
because baby its been

The Garden of Adonis

And I talk to her heart of delight, and she shudders to think elsewhere The purchase of her soul, enlightened over here She has a glass face, so smooth like porcelain Created by a master-smith, not an extrinsic villain Open minded heart, that of delight my friend Loving like no other, that which depends Centered onto my own life force, she enters my life Crafted with a perfected twinge, to complete me my wife A single inkling of power, she shares it within me She works within the hour, sublime it can be Fascinating she brings, a lovely harpsichord Beauty deep within, the chorus and the chord Superimposed grandiosity, livened inside of me She sleeps onto my shoulder, her being is what I see Softly and gently she moves, covering my tenderness She creates motion, and has loveliness Come to me my sweetheart, live a little with me You can surface each emotion, surely you can be Directly honored by your immensity I direct my heart towards divinity Lovingly we control our destiny, over the tops of our delight She showers us both with love, and the hope of life is in sight And to this our love is shown Like the greatest ever star known

Burnin' Knuckles

   Your lookin over burnin' knuckles into the road,
There it goes,
But you don't even know your destination so,
With a shake of your head,
On goes the trip,
And a whispered three words, 
This isn't it.

  Guided by a light,
Of thirty or fourty feet,
But your being driven by a heart,
That has forgotten how to beat.
 
   Oh No,
Here we go,
Another mile turns into another night,
Another day to drive right outta sight,
Ohhh it's a rollercoaster horror ride.
When looking over burning knuckles into the road,

   Oh it's a roller coaster horror ride,
Lookin over burnin' knuckles into the road,
Your lookin over burnin' knuckles into the road,
An' there it goes,
But you don't even know destination so,
With a shake of your head,
On goes the trip,
And a whispered three words,
This isn't it.
 
   On it goes_ this isn't it,
On it goes_ this isn't it,
Your trip_ Into the unknown,
While lookin over burnin' knuckles into the road,
And guided by a light,
An' a heart_ that has forgotten how to beat.

  Your lookin over burnin' knuckles into the road,
Strainin eye's on a light that guides,
Our way through what we dont know.

   Ohh it's a rollercoaster horror ride,
Being guided by the lonely nights,
While lookin over,
Burnin' knuckles,
Into the road.

I Want You to Know

I cant help what I love, About you,
I cant help that I love... Everything you do.
I love who you are, and what you think,
I want you to know, what you mean to me.
You take care of me, I wanna take care of you too.
You do so much for me, Now I wanna do somethin for you
To show you that I love you too.
Sometimes, I dont know what to do, when I'm around you,
Cuz time just flies when I'm gazin up at you.
You mean the world to me and everything,
All this time it feels like we're just a dream.
You do so much for me, Now I wanna do somethin for you
To show you that I love you too.
With every fiber of my being,
and the bottom of my heart and soul,
I want you to know... How much I love you.
How much I love.... You.

my tattoo

One last look before I throw you out the door
You will never say you are sorry anymore
But I can’t do this, it’s hurting even more
When it’s always me, picking you, up off the floor
								
But I will be always be, hung up on you
Last night I put your beautiful face, on my tattoo
Now there will never be a way, to stop seeing you
Last night I put your beautiful face on my tattoo

My heart was pierced you stuck that pin in tight
Right into my heart you pushed it all just right
And pinned yourself forever on my heart
And I have no strength to rip this all apart	

There is no more sense, to anything you say
I saw your old girl friends, and I blew them all away 
You can say forever that you have had it all
I want to get a shot gun and blast you through a wall
								                                                
But I can’t ever stop seeing you			                                                 
Last night I put your beautiful face on my tattoo

A L O N

Sa natagpuang malinis na dagat ay nakayapak na lumusong
Nagpatangay sa alon, duyan ng pangarap umusbong, 
Hinayaang lumaya ang hinaing ng puso at kanyang bulong
Ligalig na hatid nito'y ninamnam, handa na ba'ng isulong? 

Ragasa ang alon, tinangay ang walang tutol na panaghoy
Tangis ng puso, init ng pag-ibig ay nagningas, umapoy! 
Himagsik ng kalooban pilit na sinikil, di tinukoy
Ano ba, bakit ba, pagkalula'y naramdaman sa kanyang ugoy! 

Tila higop ng kumunoy, mapagkit ang kapit
Magneto ng alon ay hindi maiwasan kahit nakapikit, 
Ang lakas ng hatak, hindi malabanan kahit na kumapit
Sa paniniwalang ito lamang ay magdudulot ng hinagpis at pait! 

Natuto ngang pumaimbabaw, sa alon ay nagpatangay
Alon ng mapanglaw na pananabik sa kanya'y sumabay, 
Daloy ng kasiyahan, ninamnam ang pag-ibig na tunay
Tinangay ng masidhing pagsinta na walang kapantay.

Sa alon ng pangarap kanyang nabatid
Hangaring makamtan ang kaligayahang hatid, 
Pag-ibig na wagas rumagasa sa puso'ng sabik
Tinupad ang hiling ng kanyang matapat na gibik! 

Saan ba patungo, alon ng hangaring ito
Sa dulo ba ng talampas, mahuhulog ba o hihinto? 
O kakapit at tatayo, humakbang palayo dito
Upang sa ituktok ng talampas, daloy ng pangarap itatayo? 

Pag-ibig na dumaloy, sa puso'ng hapo
Ngayo'y tigib ng pagnanasang magkapanagpo, 
Isakatuparan ang hinaing ng sabik na puso
Maging isa, sa alon ng pag-ibig ay magpatangay ng buong puso!

Can't Be With You

I know how you feel for me
But im too scared to take a step forward
You know i got hurt before
You dont know how painful it was
I wasnt sure i would even get over it, but i did
Now, nothing is the same
My feelings is unreliable
I know that i like you
I know that i love you
I know that i have fallen for you
And i know that i wanna be with you
But i cant
It's not that easy not wanting to be with you
Cause every moment
I think of you
I think of what your doing
I think of what your thinking
You're on my mind all the time
And sometimes you make me speechless
That cute smile you make
So many great thing i see in you
Makes me wonder if i even deserve you
Now, you're talking to me about the future
Baby i'm not even ready for the present
Tell me what to do
Cause my mind is blank
But my heart is filled with emotions

Dancing on the Moon

I met a kindred soul today;  
dancing on the moon.

Her eyes began to sway with me; 
dancing on the moon.

Her smile chased my cares away; 
dancing on the moon.

I've finally embraced eternity; 
dancing on the moon.

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

For a Little While

For a Little While…

A hammer, a chisel, and a tablet made of stone
All I’ll ever need when I find myself alone
It makes more sense that I would finally set you free
I’ve held you back for too long
Don’t tell me you can’t see
A world awaits you; take a step into the light
No one to hold your hand
But only for a little while…

I see a picture forming of you in my mind
A crystal clear depiction telling me that you’ll be fine
What of me you ask? 
What will become of me?
I’ll fade on the horizon just as you’ve realized you’re free
Perhaps we’ll meet again, if only for a little while
Nothing more than friends again
With nothing to reconcile;
If only for a little while…

A hammer, a chisel, and a tablet made of stone
All I’ll ever need to keep from being alone
I feel it deep inside, like the turning of a screw
I’m so wound up, uptight, and I don’t know what to do
I know the world awaits you
So take a step into the light
No one to hold your hand
But only for a little while…

The picture I see of you is forming in my mind
A crystal clear depiction
Telling me that you’ll be fine
What of me you ask? What will become of me?
I would fade on the horizon just as you’ve realized…you’re free
Even, if only for a little while…

The Rebel

Dank, cold, unperturbed indifference,
Untouchable, yet touching all,
Unresolved in meaning,
Still creating each and every fall,
Every whim and leaning.

Touché pas! A cry of weary hate,
And will not accept a helping hand,
‘Till death! Brazen adverse in face of fate,
And alone in piteous stand…

Lone wolf we cry, thy fate is nigh,
Yet stands he still resisting,
That love should die, that only tie,
In error still persisting…

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

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

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

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

My heart is dead

You didn't listen to my heart
When it was whispering to you.
When it was screaming out,
You were indifferent and cold
Just like you never cared,
Just like you couldn't love.

A special drama
Sparkling day and night,
Now we are gon' drowning
Because my heart is dead.

Oh Yohanes

Oh Yohannes
I must be honest
I’ve got a jones for you
And when I saw you, 
I remember the sun reflecting
rays of light on your skin 
so bronze, so peaceful, so simple

I wanted to tell you all my secret
desires and temptations
and kiss you and hold you close
and when I realized I was dreaming
and that this feeling was a hoax
I began to be led astray 
by sexual desires and thoughts of foul play

but in the meantime
I have fun with the fantasy of imagining  you beside me
I stay up countless nights thinking
about how we could defy gravity
and how we could somehow reverse all the laws of sanity
and just do something crazy
I can’t make it stop
I must be crazy

And when my eyes closed...
I wanted to fall in your arms and tell you about all the fantasies that were created in honor of you

And tell you how your eyes seem to remind me that it’s okay to be beautiful

Oh Yohannes
I must be honest 
Your deeply rooted stare 
will long remain a part of my fire
and my insanely human desire to make love

Beyond What's Seen

You do not know what I see
I see you crying next to me
I see your pain, I see your tears
Through your laughs, and through the years
Past your mask I see your face
You are hiding in this place
Trust in me, I won't let you fall
You don't have to hide at all

Open up what's in your heart
That is the place I will start
Open up your eyes and see
All that's left is you and me
In the end you'll see the light
Come on, I don't want to fight
Together we will make it through
Come on. Now, It's me and you

Now you can start to feel
How much this love is true and real 
behind your eyes you keep your pain
It's all locked up in your brain
Come on. Now, just let it out
It's okay to scream and shout
I will help you through and through
I will always be with you

Pick Pocket Heart

I want to gather some sweet flower:
Sweet sweet blossoms of flowers,
Inside my red red pick pocket heart.

Hoping you're still be there,
Waiting to ask me to be your mine.

But I've found something different,
Something that makes me bite my lips,
The only thing I'd no longer expect,
Because of the crazy things that I held.

Though I know it will sounds funny,
To say something you've always telling,

Even if I cried in bitting my lips,
I tell you something, I've found special.
Its you here in my red red pick pocket heart.

Bewitched

The fairer sex
How fair they aren't
When courting is in question
The fairer sex
How good they are
At beguiling and deception

Yet so in depth
Their traps prepared
Beauty - a treacherous invention
I think I know
Their ins and outs
Still this is no protection

From evil spells
For wedding bells
Will cloud your best perception
And in a trice
Your gagged and bound
In an altarly direction

What use to can't always be

Contemplating back to a time when there use to be an us, when our relationship was built on trust, but truly it was only lust.

But I must admit that I was only being honest when I looked into your eyes and said I was in love with you.

If I can undo the past, I would go back to the time where I reckoned that you were not being true and seek to see-through your mind to have caught that clue.

But what can I do, I already knew, but I didn't want to accept the fact that I might lose you.

But I did, I did lose you, and I was torn to the deepest part of my soul to the point where I felt I was never ever going to be the same, like it was some kind of fate.

Sure I had hate; I hated you for misleading me and then leading me to believe that our relationship was going to a great place.

It was unfair that you had to tear my heart into two, misguiding me to think that you cared.

Thinking what we shared was rare.

I thought it was a nightmare, but I came to realization that I shouldn't care.

I should stop the war that was going on between my mind and my heart before it gets too far that I can't ignore.

Tough yes it was tough but enough is enough.

What we had is now through, and I am sure enough done with you.

Through It All

August 4, 2012


Well she don't mind if I
Go around back to take this call
No no she won't mind if I
Brought about it all

Right there my soul stands tall
Absent through it all

Broken plates evade my face
Against my bedroom wall
Beneath the windowsill
Where we once fell in love
Let's make peace like turtle doves
And walk back home now through the mud

Well she don't mind if I
Come back home at 4 am
No no she don't mind if I
Leave her all alone again

Right there my soul stands tall
Absent through it all

Make up like it never was
You always knew I was a dud
Above my comfy bed
Where you once rest your head
Can't we forget all that I've said
Awake where the past is dead

Well she don't mind if I
Bare knuckles through her wall
No no she don't mind if I
Yell and scream even more

Right there my soul stands tall
Absent through it all

HEAR MY VOICE

Describe the way life was meant to be

Cuz every day just melts away

To anything

 

It’s been a while since I think I’ve seen

The way I saw before the flaw

I’ve come to be

 

Another cloud, another Christmas tree

Another chance gone by, another teardrop cry

For anything

 

And looking back at how it used to be

Can’t help but wonder why, you and I

Turned out to be

 

But hear my voice

Take the words I sing

Lift the notes up high

Pretend you want to try

To be with me

 

Yes, hear my voice

Hear these songs I sing

Try to understand

You’ll never see the man

You want in me

 

So…

 

Describe the way life was meant to be

Cuz I don’t want to tip toe dance

Through everything

 

It’s been so long since I think I’ve seen

The smile upon your eyes, blue crystal skies

And memories

 

And how it hurts to think the things I think

Another word not said, another beat gone dead

Yeah little things

 

And thinking back on how it used to be

Well I don’t want to tip toe dance

Through everything

 

So hear my voice

Hear these words I sing

Cuz I don’t want

To tip toe dance

Through everything

 

Oh hear my voice

And hear the songs I sing

Porcelain Doll

I can't
I won't
Refuse to be your porcelain doll
Like I've been for... so long

You put me on this shelf
To collect dust
And you go as you please
Run off and play with your little friends

But not before you lock me away
Safe and sound in this tower
Then you run off with the key
You're such a tease

Well I've got news for you
I'm a person with feelings too and
I'm tired of collecting dust
I refuse to be the porcelain doll

Little sex toy that you want
With no mind of my own
No thoughts or opinions
Just waiting till I catch your eye

The most pathetic part is
I know just how to get your attention
It's so sad that the way to your heart
Is through my body

Worst kind of chauvinist
I know you say you love me
But darling they're just words
And I know in time, you'll miss me

And god knows it hurts
But I can't play pretend anymore
This fairytale is crashing down
Cause I'm tired of living a lie

You ask me if I'm happy...
What did you think I would say?
You abuse me so kindly
Every touch makes me think there's a chance

Maybe I'm foolish 
Maybe I'm stubborn
But I can't cry anymore
Make my tears worthwhile

If you only acted like I interested you
Maybe just a little
Maybe then things could change
We're on two different levels of love

I can't
I won't 
Refuse to be your porcelain doll
Anymore

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

There’s too much thinking going on in my head
I need to try something different instead
Get myself to move on 
Don't think I’m too far-gone
You made me aware right under this tree 
To stop wasting time on my current spree
Learn to enjoy what’s right in front of me

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
Know it’s cliché 
But it doesn't pay..
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I just need the woman standin’ in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Life's so good every day I can see
Something wonderful lookin’ back at me
Don't really know how
But I embraced the now
Every moment missed is something great
It’s right in front of us, have a little faith
Come-on, don't’ make life too tough
Take a moment to enjoy, it’s really great stuff
It’s great stuff

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
Know it’s cliché
But it doesn't pay..
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

She’s standin’ right in front of me..
Going to try
To be the best me I can be
And know the reason why
All my life

Looking for the one isn’t all fun
Thought it was fun drinking every day
I Know it’s cliché 
But it doesn't pay...
All I know 
The trouble is
I don't want a woman to save me
What I need is standin’ right in front of me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
I just need the woman standin’ in front of me 
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

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.

T A N I K A L A

Walang laya niya'ng ginugol ang kahapong pait ang hatol
Tanikala'ng nag-uugnay sa kabiyak ng kaluluwa ay naputol, 
Huminto sa pagtakbo, ngatal na napaluhod, humagulgol
Ano ba'ng dusa ito, tanikala'ng ginamit, bakit kinalawang at napurol? 

Kinaladkad ang tanikala, pilit kumawala
Subalit hindi mawari, bakit nakakabit, ang hirap lumaya, 
Hinubad na ang lahat, iniwan pati ang pag-asa'ng ligaya
Ngunit sa tanikala'ng nakakabit ay sadya'ng mahirap ang paglaya.

Pilit iniiwas ang sarili, hinayaang tanikala'y kumapit
Hinayaang maramdaman ang hapdi ng hapit, sa kanya'y may hatid na pait, 
Nangako'ng hindi na tututol sa hila ng tanikala'ng nabanggit
At hayaan na lamang dumating ang magsasalba sa kanyang pagkakapiit.

Di niya akalain, sa di sinasadyang pagkakataon
Isang ligaw na mananaliksik sa kanyang teritoryo biglang nataon, 
Hinawi ang kanyang tanikala, kinalag ang nakakapit na pag-asa
Upang muli ay magkaroon siya ng ligaya na dapat na matamasa.

Ang tanikala ay natunaw, sa tindi ng parating na apoy
Nagliliyab, batid ng puso ang dikta'ng tinutukoy, 
Hinangad muli'ng makamtan ang tunay na tanikala
Na magsisilbing hatak sa kanya sa pag-ibig na hatid ay ligaya.

Halika na, mahal ko, sana'y maramdaman mo
Samyo at init ng tanikala'ng matatamo
Tigib sa pag-ibig, hindi na dapat pa'ng sumamo
Ang pulido'ng tanikala ay tiyak matatamasa mo! 

Halika na, Mahal ko... 
Lalagi ka'ng tanikala sa puso't isip ko...

From the heart of society

Theres a girl 
she pours out her heart 
gives him everything
changes her hair goes to get 
fat sucked out of her cause no 
one tells her that she really is 
beautiful she goes home to see him in bed
kissing another girl, then get up and smack her around
people ask where she got her brusies and why she hides her face
but behinde that mask hideing her scars is a girl fearing for her life 
scared to go home to that man that just might give her more scars.
Theres a guy 
who takes care of his brother
comes home and covers his brothers ears 
while his mommy and daddy make him fear
fear for his life his mom brings home different guys 
every night, daddy is never home but when he is 
they fear for  there life that just maybe that might be the last day 
the last breath they live to take
Next day he comes home and sees mommy on the floor bleedin 
his little brother tied to the bed stabed in he chest 
he tries to run but trips and falls
three week later the found him floating down the river..
These are the  people we ignore every day 
the ones that cry out for help
 the ones that need us the most..
The ones that are pimped out and dont see there beauty
 the ones that hide the scars that the one they love put on there face
This is our world and society today

What Lies Inside

Written February 26, 2012<\em>


Behind the curtains
The stage is awry
Behind the curtains
Love is unkind

Read between the lines
And you'll find that love
Was meant to leave you mine
If you follow blindly
You'll get thrown every time

Tears cried unsightly
Tears drowned under muffled sighs
Pain hidden in the sound
A silhouette of sirens
Shadowed by your lies

You know how I suffer
You've seen it slide through my hands
It treats me unkind
Sweet, sweet angel
Oh monstrosity of mine

Like light to the flies
Truths will flow from your eyes
And speak softly in my ear
Cause it's the last I'll ever hear
Then the curtains close in here

Behind the curtains
The stage is awry
Behind the curtains
Love is unkind

It Was You

It was you from the moment I seen you.
I knew in my heart I would be the one to rescue you, but in the end you ended up saving me.
I see in your eyes the pain that lingered inside.
From your past relationships your pride was on cloud nine.
My theory was to put your fears aside.
You feel like I am like all the rest, so you continuously put my love through a test.
Why won’t you let me love you?
My love is a virtue, forever lasting external statue.
It was you my handcrafted imbue tattoo I cling to.
If you only knew how I truly feel about you.
I was sculpted only for you my sahib, I am your rib.
You’re a reflection of me desperately wanting love, but scared of the many risks that come with it.
Love should have come with an asterisk.
You’re my only weakness causing infectious affection.
It was your personality that spoke volumes to me, showering me with chivalry.
Persistency kept me where I wanted to be.
Let me be the one you need, all you need is faith as tiny as a mustard seed.
Abundantly this love will be an adjustment for you, and me.
If you should have a nightmare just know I will be there.
If you’re hurting and need to cry, I will be the one to wipe your eyes.
For my love only identifies.
I fell in love with you, not for the things you’re able to do.
                  It was simply you…
If you should happen to get laid off work, I will be the one standing in the door.
The only one you brace oneself for.
Your personal landing gear, I am whole heartily sincere.
I will be your rocking chair.
If the time comes and you begin to lose your hair, baby I will be your favorite barber chair your personal concierge.
It was you that introduced your love voodoo.
Only wanting you timeless déjà vu.
You made me love you; you are my lifetime band aid.
Now let me be your brigade, your right hand grenade.
You’re forever nursing aide.
The sharpest in your drawer knife blade.
The one and, only ace of spade your jack of trades.
Equivalent to money your love is symbolic.
A polished rocket you’re extraordinary, and solid.
Biologic process but simply flawless.
If I am getting off topic I might be losing conscious.
Thinking of you makes me forget my surroundings.
My heart starts pounding echo sounding.
I automatic start smiling, it’s simply astounding. 
You knew it has always been you.
           It was you.

Black Widow

1 through the door
2 through your heart
3 through your head
4 colors in my eyes
Red, red, red

1 clash
2 rings
3 words
4 sirens
Shrieks of red, red, red

1 bed of white
2 saviors
3 men at my side
4 grievers
Tears of red, red, red

1 room of rock
2 rings around my wrist
3 eyes in my head
4 days before forever
Stains of red, red, red

1 room
2 sides
3 on one
4 on the other
Crying out red, red, red

1 decision
2 stabs of pain in my side
3 cries
4 smiles
The judge says red, red, red

1 boy
2 people
3 arguments
4 solutions
Mine was red, red, red

Hallowed Place

My thoughts touch you in whispered ways
So often in the measured pace
Of minutes, hours called a day.
As soulful, sighing breezes sway
Lithe branches freshly dressed by Spring,
So do my thoughts caress your face
With softly stirred remembering;
Then on some treasured token stay
In homage bowed to quietly pray
And lift a tribute to your grace:
My God, this is a hallowed place.

Loudly duty calls my mind to weigh
The worth of tasks I should embrace;
Yet, e're long, my glad thoughts stray
To find a shady, sheltered bay
Unmarred by discord's haunting sting,
And there, away from all things base,
I find your spirit. Ah, there we sing
And dream together while far away
Dies the noisy din that was my day,
Let naught of earth this joy erase:
My God, this is a hallowed place.

Ecstasy

We remember all the things, we did together.
Remember all the time, we spent together.
Cherished every ounce of joy, we ever had..
In Ecstasy..
Ecstasy..
Ecstasy..

We held on tight.
To every bit of love, we ever had.
Avoided everything in life.
That ever made us mad..
And the pleasure, we shared in life.
Just came in..Ecstasy..
Ecstasy..
Ecstasy..

We knew we cared.
Cared enough to give each other.
What we needed.
The love we had.
Went undefeated.
The times we shared in life..
Just gave us..Ecstasy..
Ecstasy..
Ecstasy..
The times we shared in life.
Just gave us Ecstasy..

You Are Hard

You are hard, you are brash,
Your swagger is flash,
And when we touch base, your talk turns to cash.

You are loud, especially in a crowd,
But when your rowdy anger flies
Your friends are suitably cowed.

You are strong, but weak as well,
When someone's wrong you give them hell,
But when they're right you're even worse -
oh, how we love to hear you curse!

Hopes and hearts you broke before
lie littered by each bedroom door,
In their love-lost legions,
they nurse their dark sweet lesions.

You of ice, then of wild fire,
A self-confessed accomplished liar.
Yet still we dance attendance full, 
on you - our heart's desire!

You will not leave a friend without,
But on that friend will scream and shout.
No stauncher ally can be found,
But to your life we must be bound.

Tough as diamond, soft as silk,
No deeper well of kindness' milk.
On we who dwell within your walls,
No shadow of oblivion falls!

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.

Experiences Freestyle

Love's a many joys and pains; A wild ride no matter how you take them reigns. In vain we try our best at evading the lanes, but you gonna get wet if you stay in the rain. And you can press reset once you reach that place where the hurt in your chest starts to fade and be replaced with the fact that the wackness can be faced; laughed and left, not mad, no regrets. See it might take a little second, trust I've been there before. Disappointed in the person you gave too much credit. You aint a fool for gettin fooled, that's what foul folks do, but you a fool if you aint wise enough you debt it. See it's hard out here slim pickings on the regular; Fallin for charisma lookin past character. But when it's all said and done, better aim my style. I'll let karma do it's thing and laugh last. "Ha-haaaa"
Hit the gas!

Taking the risk

How about we set up in the dark
Just pitch a tent 
Where the only sound is your heart
Somewhere we can't be found

Forgotton
But surely not lost
Hand in hand
Running from the quicksand
Running far from the frost

Just you and I
only me and you
no one to lie
nothing to do

How profound
To not be found
And not to hear a sound

Don't let go of my hand I plead
I followed you
You were the lead

Will you sing to me? 
It's what you bring to me
Takes away that sting from me

Well I digress
I leave with no distress

Just hold my hand
And I'll hold yours
let's just lay here
just you and me

Behind Every Mask

Behind Every Mask

I'm in love with the warmth of your lips. 
I can still feel the edge of your fingertips. 
Your hands on my hips. 
The electricity in your eyes.
The smile your face won't hide 
even if it tried. 

There are questions you won't ask. 
There are answers I may never have. 
Falling in love is quite a task. 
There is truth behind every mask.

There's a ferocity that never dies 
when love truly tries.
We could walk, we could run for miles.
Endure any trial
Glance at each deceptive face that smiles.
But, that won't define the cruelty it beholds now
when love makes its final vow 

There are questions you won't ask. 
There are answers I may never have. 
Falling in love is quite a task. 
There is truth behind every mask.

I don't have every solution you'll ever need.
I won't have the formula every time you succeed.
But, I will be the love you never expected this of. 

There are questions you know you'll ask. 
There are answers I'll eventually have. 
Falling in love is quite the task. 
There is hidden truth behind every mask.

I'm Out Of Love Again

I only like the young ones the beautiful and tall the brunettes or the redheads, or the bleach blonde Barbie doll head over heels in love again and I spin into a daze but love can’t last forever, ‘cause we got too different ways I get bored way too easy no woman loves me long it’s incompatibility and sad to be alone it’s just the natural way if things, these matters of the heart and with all my insecurities it always falls apart (chorus) and tonight once more, I’m out of love again back out in the cold cold night with that familiar icy wind summer days are memories and winter’s just stormed in and tonight once more, I’m out of love again I only like the young ones, the beautiful and tall If they’ve got it all together, it’s for sure I’m gonna fall Where there’s spark there’s fire, it burns up in a blaze But love can’t last forever, ‘cause we got too different ways (chorus) and tonight once more, I’m out of love again back out in the cold cold night with that familiar icy wind summer days are memories and winter’s just stormed in and tonight once more, I’m out of love again I get bored way too easy, no woman loves me long it’s incompatibility and sad to be alone so as I travel down this road I sing my sad love song I’ll keep rollin’ town to town, ‘til this road finds me a home (chorus) and tonight once more, I’m out of love again back out in the cold cold night with that familiar icy wind summer days are memories and winter’s just stormed in and tonight once more, I’m out of love again (repeat chorus),/center>

May You Show Me Symbols If I Am Loved Back

Your kindheartedness just drive me drowsy like the day when
I took over dose
And remember I just be in motion so witlessly heartbroken just suppose
Even when I look so yawning into your eyes I hardly see
love is adipose
Come to common dearest and make this part of my life to you so close

May you show me symbols if I am loved back?

I want to just love you for the rest of my life honey
You've got to hold me so stiff no matter when I have no money
I believe we'll have to earn money in this kind of job so ugly
So never just go away dear when am burdened with a job in your eyes that's so funky

May you show me symbols if I am loved back?

I bet you appreciate me honey I'll never get to annoy you
I just see you'd be shining so fastidious in a color blue
I just want to thank you in advance so have this magnificent shoe
I know you'll take me so hazardous in this kind of me holding to you so glue
But I believe you'll love me more because am among the chosen few
So may you show me symbols if I am loved back?

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.

Tired

When your tired, its hits hard.
Freight train hard
All explanation points to the point of the lies told by people you are suppose to trust and maybe and just maybe love. Strong word spoken without meaning; I would put it on the line, nothing to lose.  Losing never felt like winning until your betrayed.  
No changes, but I dream that she would. Understand my point of view of things going on in my life. 
Just listen...
Just once please... Understand
Without your simple expressions I’ve heard and tried to maintain, maybe change.  
 It hurts sometimes, I’m blinded by the pain, looking through the cracks in my fingers removing the sweat from my head.  Maybe when I cover my eyes I’ll disappear, maybe that moment she will care.  
No high hopes though she’s got her eyes on different types of prizes.  
I assume for a reason, my assumptions have backbone. 
I’m tired of fighting like, when your tired your just tired to the point of possible broken bones. I’m tired of fake friends and yes she falls into that category 
Different situation, same story.
I’m just going to lie down and listen to the sounds of my breathing, not listening to her leaving.
 I’ll just talk to myself because I’m tired and she always refuse to listen walking away without kisses, a simple touch of understanding was all I wanted.
I’m just tired, so I’m just letting go.
No stress.

One

To become one flesh, one mind,
Two hearts must bare the inmost shrine;
'T is then two souls can intertwine
And mingle on the utmost spire,
Fuel to feed Love's sacred fire,
Consumed upon its flaming pyre.
From that altar just one will rise,
A phoenix winged to split the skies:
All that was two in ashes lies.

Totohanang Panaginip

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

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

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

hangal...bakit hindi? 

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

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

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

Vile

Your breath on my neck
You breathe in my scent
A sensational wreck
A sly wicked hint

A complete disaster
You wreak of wrong
My heart still beats faster
(Still faster)
When I hold on so long

Get your stench off me
But linger while you do
Feelings deep as the sea
Shallow as a pool

Perversion in your eyes
Twisted lies on your lips
You disgust me
You entrance me
But you're not worth my time

My heart aches of trouble
My head suffers double
Stop staring
Start looking
You lay the bait
For something I can't have

Get your stench off me
But linger while you do
Feelings deep as the ocean
Shallow as a pool.

PLAY-BOY 2

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

Plenty of fish in the sea, you gotta' use the right bait

Move fast, early bird gets the worm, don't be late

I'm a player, I attract all types of women

Get 'em all wet, like they're going swimmin'

Switch 'em up, more than I do my clothes

Got a different chick at all of my shows

Can't choose, there's too many to pick from

I beat that thing up like banging on a drum

Like fishes in water, I got 'em hooked

Chicks galore, schedule's filled, like a library I'm booked

We're in the bed more than hospital patients

Take my time, make sure she's satisfied, I got patience

They call me the Hulk, all I do is smash

It's a hit-and-run, not talking 'bout a car crash

Call it the thing on the side of your bed, one-night-stand

Kinda' like a hit TV show, I'm on demand

Walang Paglagyang AGAM-AGAM

Batid ko, sa taghoy ng katahimikan mo
Bakas sa ihip ng hangin ang nakakunot na noo, 
Samyo ng nagbabagang hangin ng AGAM-AGAM
Hindi mapigilang sakit ng di malamang pakiramdam.

Ipinako ang paningin sa palubog na araw
Malamlam na panginoorin, kulay ay mapanglaw, 
Linlang ng AGAM-AGAM, paniniwala'y nauupos
Katulad ng malungkot na paglubog ng araw, liwanag ay nawala nang lubos! 

Puso'y kinurot ng dilim, hatid ay ligalig
Di mawari kung saan susuling, nabibingi ang pandinig, 
Umuukilkil sa diwa, AGAM-AGAM ng pag-ibig
Ako ba o siya, tayo na ba o hindi pa? 

Saan ka dadalhin ng AGAM-AGAM? 
Sa kawalang pag-asa ba at hayaang hangarin ay maparam? 
Iwasan na lamang ba at huwag nang lumaban
Maniwala sa AGAM-AGAM na sa puso ay nakadagan? 

Ahhh...tanong ni JR, tila kulay ng mundo mo'y may bahid ng lungkot? 
Umiibig ka, wika mo, subalit mata mo'y mapanglaw, tila may takot, 
Halakhak mo'y may bahid ng AGAM-AGAM
Tula na akda mo'y may guhit alinlangan sa pakiramdam.

Hmn...Ang umibig ay dakila, wagas na adhika
Hatid nito'y ligaya, nilulunod ang katauhang nagpaparaya, 
Subalit malungkot ang umibig sa taong ang minamahal ay hindi makasama
Pupunuin ng AGAM-AGAM ang pusong umaasa! 

AGAM-AGAM...Saan ka dadalhin nito, kaibigan? 
Di nga ba't walang paglagyang AGAM-AGAM saiyo'y nakapasan? 
Marahil ay hindi sapat ang namutawing pag-ibig na may katiyakan
Hindi mapapawi ng mga kataga ang AGAM-AGAM o ang alinlangan! 

AGAM-AGAM ng puso, pakiusap...ako ay iwan mo.

LARO ng PUSO

Ilang beses na ba'ng pumintig, yaring lalagyan ng pag-ibig? 
Isa...dalawa...tatlo... ganito ba ang umibig? 
Hindi mapigilang maakit sa hinaing ng mga katagang naririnig, 
Puso ba ay nadadala na lamang sa tamis ng kanyang bibig? 

Kabog ng dibdib sa bawat saglit, tila ba tumatahip 
Kilig na dulot sa kanyang alay na langit ang kalakip, 
Sa bawat patunay na kanyang binabanggit
Tunay na pag-ibig, iniaalay ang puso, saksi pati langit! 

Ngunit kapagdaka, tila paningin ay nag-iba
Masidhing pag-ibig ay binalot ng suspetsa, 
Kagyat kinain ng agam-agam, ang puso ay hindi na gaya ng umpisa
Naniwala sa Laro ng Puso, totoo nga ba ito, tama nga ba siya? 

Laro ng Puso, ito nga ba'y may patotoo? 
Bakit hindi, tunay nama'ng mapaglaro ang puso
Minsa'y umiibig, minsan nama'y nasusuklam
Minsan ay puno ito ng tamis, sa kalauna'y tigib ng pait! 

Laro ng Puso, saan ka ihahatid nito? 
Sa kawalang katiyakan ba o sa pag-ibig na totoo? 
Makailang beses nga ba dapat umibig ang puso? 
Huwag naman sana'ng mauwi sa pag-ibig na tanso!

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...

hinagpis ng pagkatalo
sumuko'ng pag-ibig
naparam, nakipaglaro.

pilit dininig, 
pinakinggan awit ng iyong tinig
malamyos, malungkot
mapagmalaki, mapagbiro.

umasa ako
puso mo'y marinig
melodya ng aking tinig
ngunit bingi ang iyong pandinig
inakala mo, puso ko'y di na ikaw ang awit.

di yata't kailangan
idikta, iukit
lirika nitong pag-ibig? 

huli na.

melodya ng iba
akap-akap na ng iyong alaala
papaano pa maririnig, mababasa
lirika nitong pagsinta? 

tititigan pa ba kita sa mata? 

kung ang kislap nito'y banaag na
melodya ng bago mo'ng sinta
at nakipagniig na
sa dinatnan mo'ng musika
sa bayan na inulila.

paalam na...
ulan.
lirika ng puso
akin nang kalilimutan
magpaparaya sa melodya
na umakit, nagpasigla
sa awit ng iyong pangungulila!

How is it that I Feel this Way

How is it that i feel this way, Feel the same... as I did once upon a time?
I dont know what to do, I feel that I'm losing my mind.
Everybody tries to get their way, They make mistakes,...
Until it's too late.
They don't realize what they're doin' to you...
Cuz they are, so confused.
Nobody's perfect in the Next life or this,
But when we realize, the big mess that we're in...
We wanna take back the pain with one little wish,
and do it... all over again.
How is it that i feel this way, Feel the same... as I did once upon a time?
Everybody tries to get their way,
But they keep makin', them old mistakes.
It seems as if I cant do a single thing right,
But all I asked was for you to hold me tight.
Things are back to the way they were...
Hell they're even better.
You may have a second chance, afterall...
So dont you dare Drop the ball
How is it that i feel this way, Feel the same... as I did once upon a time?
I dont know what to do, I feel that I'm losing my mind.
Nobody's perfect in the Next life or this,
But when we realize, the big mess that we're in...
We wanna take back the pain with one little wish.
Do it, Just do it, all over again....

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.

Original of the Doc wearing fist cuffing angels

Baby don't walk away
It's true that the beginning is better than the end
Please hold that smile somewhere in your heart

I will give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it

Somethings you shouldn't have to do alone
Like sleeping, waking and eating
Some people got way too much on their plate

I would give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
You'll never be alone, no
So sugar come on show us those soles
You've been wearing out when you collect the toll

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
The whole of what you got, the whole of what you got

Gangrenous

Our words will never change.
Rewind the arguments and keep the frame.
We've found a hidden vein.
I'm sick of mining these messes we've made.

We will not compromise.
This is exactly how it came to life.
I've said so many times,
The more we twist it, the better the knife.

This situation's stench,
reeks of a gangrenous relationship.
This mental necrosis,
kills off memories we're wanting to live.

Maybe I'll amputate,
so that we have a chance to not decay.
We'll have our better days.
At least one of us has to make a change.

Kung IKAW lamang ay S A N A

Sipunin si Nene noong una ko'ng masilayan
Binigyan mo ng ngiti ang tikom na makipot na labi
Kulay ng pisngi ay nag-iba, malarosas kapag ika'y nakikita
At sa bawat ngiti ng mapanukso mong labi
Di mawari, pakiramdam ko ang kagustuhang mayakap mo muli! 

Naging isa, tinadhana ng Lumikha
Buong pagkatao isinuko pati ang kaluluwa
Tamis ng pagmamahalan binabalik-balikan
Sinumpaang pagmamahalan, malayang ipinaramdam.

Halakhak na dulot ng malikot na isip
Lalong napalapit sa iniibig
Bawat luha na pumatak
Buong pusong niyakap, inunawa, tinanggap.

Mahal kita... saiyo ako ay gustong humabi ng SANA
Hanap ka lagi ng puso, laman ng isip, nasa ng pagkatao
Ikaw na tila kasukat ng katawan, kahati ng pagkatao, 
at sa pag-iisa ng mga kaluluwang tunay na nagmamahalan! 

Kung IKAW lamang ay SANA
humabi na ako ng pangarap na TAYO ngang dalawa
Magkahawak-kamay na tatahakin
mamuhay sa mundo ng walang hahamakin! 

Subalit heto tayo, kasalukuyang nakakahon
Ikaw sa mundo mo na bigla ay sinubok ng pagkalito
Mahal mo ba siya o ako ba...
O mamaalam na sa pagmamahalang walang kasing-sarap na pinagsaluhan? 

Ramdam ko ang pagbabago mo
ngunit naiintindihan ko
tanikala mo'y hindi kailanman mapapatid
lalagi ka na lamang AKIN sa panaginip...

Kung ikaw lamang ay SANA...
Alam ko, tayo ay magiging maligaya.

Ngunit...

Akala ko nung una ang SANA ay pag-asa.

What's The Game Mary Jane

Mary Jayne, You know you cause me so much pain You always fill me with a false security You fool around with me You stand with open arms And then stand back and watch me fall down, Mary Jayne Mary Jayne, You’ve gone and stole my heart again You’re taking pleasure in it I can never win; look at the state I’m in You stole my heart And ripped it into little tiny pieces, Mary Jayne Mary Jayne, You know you’re driving me insane You take me by the hand And lead me all astray; it’s always been the way You set me up to knock me down Just like a game, you play me, Mary Jayne

I'm Sorry Pt 2

Baby sit down
Let me tell you what happen
It seemed for that moment
Your boy was jus nappin
She came in the room
Cryin real hard
I told her to talk to me
Tell me how it start
Before she even said a word
We’re kissin on the counter
For the moment I imagine it was you
I was holdin in the shower
I never seen it comin 
And im sorry this I gotta tell you
She’s pregnant with my baby 
And its due in june
It was jus one time 
And I never did it again
But she sent me this letter
Still the words are in my head
 Now its off my chest 
Baby tell me what your thinkin
Tell me whats on your mind
Tell me how much of me you really hate
She has her guy
And I should be all alone
But baby please forgive me
Please done leave me and go
You are my only one
And I promise theres no other
Now thats all that I can say
And I promise there wont be another

Leasing, Michigan

memories are like mistletoe
kiss them well and let them weep 
after all it's the subtle things 
we fail to keep
 
living like the poison seeps 
lay awake just to fall asleep
laughing like you meant it  
despair marks martyrs, 
no contest

painting my soul on the chapels 
of sixteen shadows 
it's the beauty we come to confess
drifting away 
on the late side of michigan 
holding on to a widow 
like you're forever missing her

i feel your shadow
i know your leaving 
it's getting closer
i know we're not suppose to 

memories don't respond to infatuation 
and melody's don't mock the sad 
tickles, trickle down like shame 
smiling like you're right where you belong

a moment here and a moment there
we were just a moment outside of home
thinking back like
time always leaves you alone
 
hiding in the shadows 
moving like there was no atmosphere 
vividly free falling 
no here-after calling 

you touch rivers
like the rush given
failed to deliver 
cursing labor 
like the child 
failed it's savior 

we were just moving along 
i hear thats all you can do 
holding on to the pain 
trying to make it last 
as long as you need it to 

i know your leaving
i feel your shadow 
it's getting closer
i know we're not suppose to

shes the key

You seem to ignore me and all I have to say.
I can't help it so I'll tell you anyway.
Life before you had turned so numb.
There were no smiles, no laughs only sadness would come.
My days were empty and were often spent alone.
The demons constantly reminding me that I'm on my own.
Coming to terms that my heart no longer had a beat.
Looking at the facts I knew I was incomplete.
Locked in a world that was long dead to me.
Crying on the inside cause to the lock there was no key.
To this living hell I had been enslaved.
Praying for a miracle I longed to be saved.
Time went by and the days turned into night.
I gave up on hope I knew I was losing this fight.
Then one day it was much like the rest.
She came to me and placed her ear upon my chest.
It made me unsure cause no beat could be heard.
She said I'm your miracle I give you my word.
I opened my eyes to awake from a dream.
It felt so real or so it seemed.
The girl from my dream I knew her from some place.
I recognized her voice but I didn't see her face.
The seasons changed from summer to fall.
I started to doubt my dream maybe there's no miracle after all.
Then one evening it was late October.
I was messaging an old friend and invited her over.
We met at a store that was about a mile away.
I got in with her so nervous I didn't no what to say.
We talked for hours it all went so great.
Time flew by and the evening turned late.
I got to share this before I can write more.
I've never told a soul about this before.
An hour or so after she left is when it dawned on me.
It was my dream it was her face I didn't see.
Life with her has been a romantic fairytale.
We've been up we've been down trying times designed to make us fail.
Miles now find there way in between.
I'll never give up after the love I seen.
Your my proof that dreams come true.
I'll do my best to fulfill your dreams to.
I'll do all I can day in and day out.
Cause life with you is what its about.
You have breathed new life into my soul.
From incomplete you made me whole.
Only with you is when the demons seem at bay.
Your the only one that makes me truly feel OK.

Crush, But Not A Rush

(Chorus: song (rpt. 1x)): As I was raised up on my relationship life
It was hard for the one who had a crush on me
I sometimes crushed him back, but its not a rush
Even though time after time I had to blush 
He was my crush, but not a rush

(Verse 1: rap): Not trying to push on you wrong baby boy
Im telling you, you’re not dealing with a toy 
But it’s this part of me that you will never know
I know you see the love that I try to show
Now look at this broken heart you got to mend
I don’t wont to send my love
I want to share it with you
But this one person had step in my life, including others
down the road that crushed it down piece by piece
It seems as if this broken heart
Just isn’t going to be put back
paste by paste
I know its my only lips you want to taste
I know its my only body you want to feel
I know its our love you want to share
I know it seems as if I don’t care
because in my eyes you’re just a crush, but not a rush

(Chorus: song (rpt. 1x)): As I was raised on my relationship life
It was hard for the one who had a crush on me
I sometimes crushed him back, but its not a rush
Even though time after time I had to blush
He was my crush, but not a rush

(Verse 2: rap) I know my love is the only thing you want to taste 
But boy please believe that I need my space
I know its my face that you only want to see
And my heart you want to set free
Cause you tired of these skees
But Im not on that B.S.
Im on a woman stage of something so real
I know you want to feel in me
But I don’t think you see
that im not looking for love
of these so-called men
Can’t you see in order for me to keep my head up high
Is to only look beyond the skies
Because when I’m down
I know that the one beyond the skies will comfort me
And if its really your love I need
When can you show that for me
I think your really blinded by what you see
Instead of seeing the real woman inside of me
Can’t you see
That you’re just a crush, but baby boy its not a rush

(Chorus rpt 2x)

Additament Amour Apier

We could have been together build bridge out mountain
When it rain been the clouds for stormy weather
Looking in your eyes sometimes it like a reflection of you and I
Questioning where did we go wrong

This three words do they mean anything in this world any more
In this world how many lovers will one take 
In this world how many will be a soul mate
In this world how many will be the one
Questioning where did we go wrong

Cause you gotta to be the one that you comes home to at night
Gotta to be the one that open doors to the bed at night
Gotta to be the one that you tell all your friends about
Tell me if I wasn’t the one

Thoughts of us together cares one another day to day it’s you it’s you it’s you
Whatever should I do it’s you it’s you It’s you
To make it work can I be truthfully-

“If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?”
Cause I'am a Firm Believer It’s you it’s you It’s you  
Questioning Where did we go wrong

Gotta to be the one that you comes home to at night
Gotta to be the one that open doors to the bed at night
Gotta to be the one you tell all your friends about
 Tell me if I wasn’t the one

I miss you I love you where do I start I always put you first
No matter the weather no matter the season cause all things will come to a end
But what I learn to ask what are we working for in life
And what I learn to ask the most important question then falling over the words-

You are pushing me to be a better me I’m growing to extend that most mean fail to admit 
I’m learning to listen rather then be submissive
I’m learning to wait rather then to question
Careless whispers in the dark where did we go wrong

As I sleep reach out at night and I know you’re doing the same because of our life style 
Dreaming is not a good night kiss but the reason behind a brand new day 
And if I falling may I fall in your arms cause home is where ever UR
Tell me if I wasn't the one-

Picture Perfect

Who would've knew...
lets just say I found love in a strange place
at least thats what I think 
and she might be the woman I'm
gonna be eternally happy wit so I try not to blink
and despite what I went threw in my past 
my ambition is to make this relationship last
and I promise to give her my all
so I'm taking off my heartbroken mask.

Yeah it's a new year but forget all that
she's my everything and pain is
the last thing I would bring to her heart
this relationship is off to good start
but the key is to keep that way 
and forget all that he say she say
we gone make it as long as we stay dedicated
just because I know a successful relationship 
ain't just built on relations.

So there's no debating if I'm a be faithful
thats me, right in her arms is where I wanna be
and even though she hasn't told me and 
we don't know too much bout each other 
I know she's saying in her mind 
I know that he loves me.

This picture is perfect and honestly 
I'm kinda emotionally hurting 
but everytime I think of our future
anything we may go threw is more than worth it
she's worth it I'm worth it
but one things for certain and thats... 
I thank God for her
