Violin

.                                              She sleeps in her rose wood bed,
                                                  under a blanket of velvet red;
                                                   old and alone and forgotten,
                                           she dreams of the love she once had.
                                              Once again she recalls his caress
                                                      on the curve of her hips
                                                                and her breast
                                                         as he moved his bow
                                                      on the strings of her soul,
                                                             playing her sound
                                                    'til his passion was spent.
                                                                        ~~~
                                           They traveled the whole world over,
                                                      to every city and town;
                                              the maestro, his bow and violin,
                                                 bringing each curtain down.
                                                                        ~~~
                                               He died in a cry of sweet refrain,
                                               clutching her strings to his heart; 
                                            as he fell to the floor in a final encore,
                                                       tearing her world apart.
                                                                        ~~~ 
                                           So she sleeps in her rose wood bed,
                                                  under a blanket of velvet red;
                                                         her strings still filled 
                                                    with the song of her soul,
                                                        etched by the maestro
                                                               that loved her

Star-Crossed (For Love of Day, For Love of Night)

(this is a form called Swap Quatrain, where first
line's phrases swap in the last line of each stanza)

In shadows’ veils, at end of night,
sweet Moon removes her modest light
and softly, yet again, exhales -
at end of night, in shadows’ veils.

As she departs, her love’s released
to climb the stairway to the east.
They cannot meet to share their hearts.
Her love’s released as she departs.

She watches him while hid from view,
the way he kisses morning’s dew,
and sees gold rays spill from his rim.
While hid from view, she watches him.

Sad Moon, alone for centuries,
with awe has watched Sun leave, cerise.
while she, afar. . . how cold she’s grown! 
For centuries, sad moon alone.

She takes his place so he may rest.
And though forlorn, she’s always dressed
in lace, for Luna has great grace.
So he may rest, she takes his place.

For love of night, for love of day,
she can’t implore him that he sway
from course.  To be apart’s their plight.
For love of day, for love of night.


For Dr. Ram Mehta's Contest: Luna, the goddess of moon

Where The Heart Resides

Like open arms
These broken gates reach out to me
And lead me to the lonely house
That overlooks the sea

Her door once proud and stately
Now splintered hangs in shame
As she realizes no longer can she
Keep out the wind and rain

I look into her beautiful
Sad and haunted eyes
These windows to her soul
Where alone she waits to die

Her rooms I see before me
Stripped naked raped and bleeding
And somewhere from within them
I hear her softly pleading

She beckons me to enter
I cross her threshold timidly
And suddenly an old familiar feeling
Comes washing over me

The floorboards squeak beneath me
As I move slowly down the hall
Tip-toeing through the paper roses
All withered on her walls

I step into her parlor
With tears falling from my eyes
As precious memories carry me
To the place my heart resides

I see her in her former splendor
Dressed in satin and old lace
Crystal chandeliers reflect the light
And caress her lovely face

French doors open to the fields
Where once I used to play
Make believe in lands of dreams
On sunny summer days

Silky curled beside the hearth
Purring softly as she sleeps
I caress her so tenderly
As my heart falls at her feet

The air is filled with music
As grandma strokes the keys
The aunts and uncles all join in
And sing in harmony

We take our places at the table
Laid out in fine bone china
We bow our heads and thank the Lord
For all the ties that bind us

Grandpa carves the giant turkey
Grandma brings the platters
We fill our plates with food and mirth
And an endless stream of chatter

And when the moon hangs overhead
In a soft and velvet sky
One by one we take our leave
With hugs kisses and goodbye’s.

I love you Grandma
I love you Grandpa
Rings into the night
And once again in my world
Everything is right

I close the door behind me
I say my last farewell
As I hear her take her final breath
In the trill of a whippoorwill

The Promise of Spring - A Fibonacci

I 
Will
Kiss you
While you sleep
Lady dressed in white
And melt your cold heart  made of ice

Then
You
Will rise
Liquefied
High into the sky
And fall as raindrops from God’s eyes

To
The 
Waiting
Buds below
Where now you will grow
With me - in the bloom of a rose

My Lovers Beyond Compare

I greet you, oh mighty Sun!
You who warm us everyone
You who glow to make things grow
You who melt all ice and snow
You are a most mighty one
For you rule the sky, oh Sun
But my Lover have you seen?
Oh Sun, now where have you been?
Far stronger he is than you
His rays warm me through and through
He knows how to “solar” please
His heat he turns on with ease
At times he warms nice and slow
Until I melt, and I flow
Then sizzles without a care
He drizzles from solar flare
He scorches me with his might
Defies the coming of night
Oh, Sun Prince, can you not see?
My Lover’s Sun King to me?

Oh, Moon, you send out your beams
Enchantress are you of dreams
I have named you, Mistress Moon
For you make each lover swoon
But even YOU can’t compare
With my Love! Try, if you dare!
Like you, he lights up my night
Yet brighter far than YOUR bright
Into nights his magic spills
Brings to body lunar thrills
He makes my wild passion rise
To his pull, my heart complies
Oh, Mistress Moon, do beware
My Lover is much more fair

Oh Stars, be snuffed out in shame
Your twinkle is not the same
As my Lover’s eyes at night
Incandescent is his light!
They gleam down on me in love
When like you, he rides above
They engage as he commands,
my body with “eye” demands
There is not a finer gaze
than his eyes that leave a daze
Oh, Starlight, you weakened are
For his eyes outshine your Star

Oh mighty Wind, well you sigh
For your strength, I do deny
While your gusts can lash and whip
and prowess, a soul can grip,
My Lover’s strength is much more
Than all that you have in store
He brings me down to my knees
By his breath, a lovely breeze
My body you can’t caress
His fury makes me undress
When he moves, I feel the rush
He presses me close, a crush
My tresses and every part,
he commands with galeful art
Oh Wind, you now must subside
For from his touch, who can hide? 

Oh mighty Waves, you that pound
that crash with a roaring sound
You crest in a foaming spray
and leave all in disarray 
My Lover, breaks over me
In waves of sheer ecstasy
He builds up a mighty roar
Then in tingling crests, I soar
He thrashes with might and pounds 
Till in his white foam I’m gowned
When the crest recedes, what bliss,
I’m lulled to sleep by his kiss!
Oh, mighty Waves, this is true
My Love is stronger than you

Oh Powers that Be, beware!
My Lover’s beyond compare!

I Look To the Moon

I look to the Moon, hanging aloft
Among the clouds so milky soft.
How must it feel, so high above?
So chilled and bleak and void of love.

Collapsed and sunken are his eyes,
Dark and deep as the onyx skies.
As the Moon shies from the sun,       
I share no love with anyone.

The Moon is alone, without affection.
In its grim face is my reflection.
Inside my heart, the longing grows,
And rots my soul, a sickly rose.

While I look beyond this cage,
I clench my fists; they shake with rage.
I desperately stare above,
Wishing to fly, free as a dove;
For release from the troubled heart I claim,
To be finally rid of the madness and shame.
                                      
Although reprieve is found in song,
To no one does my soul belong.
In music, may the pleas be spoken,
But all in vain; the heart is broken.
                            
The Sphere returns, begins to sigh.
We are not so different, You and I.
So twisted and fractured is the White Stone.
We both have no one; We are both all alone.

A Butterfly's Ballad in the Faraway Land

I get a glimpse of you A soft hue of light lavender rising in my dawn gliding fervently in sun-kissed breeze An ephemeral beauty enchanting the depths of these caramel eyes flaunting your gossamer wings in whimsical ballad sprinkling ethereal dew upon the embers of my heart And I feel it,a florescent flutter tickling my bare shoulder a slight inhale of fragrance's breath lingering within my thought chasing the back of my neck,teasing in wistful wonder My blushed smile preserves the moment Of your tender brush across the silk peach of my cheek Of your fervent kiss fading in evanescent bliss and unspoiled warmth of ardent touch upon my hair My heart capture the seconds till those iridescent wings fly high in sheer splendor to crimson blossoms which bloom,which sway which bleed and bend,which wrap their thorns around my feet,around my hand So,I would not follow dreams'coloured pastels So I would not run to you,and I would not find you by Spring's muddy gardens,in the faraway land.

Umbrella

There she stands 
Centre stage for all to see
Tall and slender 
Precariously she balances.

I reach out for her
Draw her to me 
My hand skims her body 
Slowly reaching her skirt.

Playful fingers find hidden areas
Delighted her legs spring forth
Displaying the very beauty
Of her delicately adorned skirt.

Gaily she dances around
Dizzily twisting and turning
In the brightness of day shading
She gently tends to my needs.

Personal ballerina takes to toes leaping
Merrily bobbing up and down
As emotional to her performance
Clouds cry a thousand tears for her.

Reaching our destination
Slightly shaken, she leans
Watches me quietly drips
Against the wall.

Reminiscent of the day's fulfillment
We acknowledge one another silently
Restful knowing we shall be
One once more.

Ode to the Redwood

I was once a little twig with dreams of being a mighty tree
So people would come from all around just to look at me
As the years started to come and go I fell in love with the wind
I would open myself big and wide swaying to the music of my friend
My rings became many and my bark was as red as red could be
Then the day finally came I was the tallest of the tallest trees
I stood tall and I stood proud and everyone knew my name
As my rings continued recording my destiny to fame
Then the fateful day it came my friend and I had a fight
Looking back I can't recall who was wrong or right
I said, "You are but the wind something people can't even see"
" And I'm the king of them all the tallest of the tallest trees"
That night the wind started to howl she really started to blow
And I the tallest of all the trees learned we reap what we sow
My roots struggled to hold on tight but without a soul around
She who had been my dearest friend knocked me to the ground
The loggers came and cut me up then shipped me away
To my soul that truly was a sad and lonely day
Torn from all I knew and loved wishing I didn't have to feel
I was cut into boards and post down at the local mill
Now I'm back here at home just a few feet away
From where my friend the wind and I used to dance and play
I'm the deck on which you stand I lay below your feet
There is a bench made of me would you care to have a seat
Sometimes in life our roles change just take a look at me
The trick is no matter who are what you are be all you can be
See I was once a little twig who became a mighty tree
And now I'm a redwood deck as proud as proud can be
And of my friend the wind she visits me everyday
So I can thank her once again for helping me find my way

Rose and Rose Marie

‘Twas on a morn’ in early spring
When I met Rose Marie
In a garden
Where she sat - upon a bench
Beneath a willow tree

Where - with a glance
My heart was stabbed
With pangs of jealousy 
For it was  - very plain to see
She was - by far - more beautiful than me

She spoke -  with colored words - like rainbows
Spun with  threads of gold 
As she described the man she loved
With all her heart and soul

She told me - of his beauty
Raven hair and eyes of green 
And as she talked  - he appeared -  before me
As in a  -  living dream

She told me - how she met him
On the Shore of Evermore
There in the fields - above the cliffs
Amid the mist - an ocean roar

She told me how -  with their first kiss
He carried her away
As he poured his love - into her soul
There - so high above - that wind-swept bay
With Heaven  - but a breath away

Her words - like magic - in that moment
Cast a  spell on me
For I too now - had fallen - so deeply - in love
With Cannon Lee

I longed to feel his breath 
His lips upon my velvet skin
I longed to quench - the lustful thoughts
That now  burned  - so deep within

So - when Rose Marie - stood up to leave
And turned her back on me
I dug my thorns into her wrist
And  sealed - my evil deed

My jealousy - now turned to poison
Ran quickly through her veins
And as she tried - to pry me loose
I clawed her - once again

"Tainted blood" - is what they say
Stole his love away
And that is how - I came to be here
On these cliffs today.

So tenderly - he holds me now
And  finally kisses me
As his tears - fall on my open petals
And trickle  - down my leaves

Then - from his lips - there comes a cry
Of such despair - it cracks the sky
“ My darling - my love - my life 
Why did you have to die?”


And here so high - above these cliffs
These cliffs of ‘Evermore’
I hear her name - resounding -  above  the ocean roar
‘Rose Marie’ - ‘Rose Marie’
As he cast me  -  with a final kiss
Into the raging sea.

Goddess Of The Night

Dusk calls out to the Goddess of the night,
coaxing her over tree tops, she's shining bright.

Within tonight's twilight, her white light is full,
the one evening of each passing month
when she drops the veils of mystery,
exposing her true beauty for all to see.

Luna is my spiritual mistress of the witching hour,
cooling off the tempers of my Sun's burning power.

Enraptured by her teasing splendor,
as she flirts with night creatures.
When she becomes a perfect circle
dancing across the velvet dome of night,
showing off her full, pale, curvaceous might,
these are the very moments
that the primal animal inside,
patiently waits for, 
with a building, beastly crescendo.

Tonight,
I watch the Goddess of the night
disrobe amongst the jealous stars,
flaunting her suspenseful bloom,
causing the very darkness to swoon.
Gentle light of the moon
caresses my skin as a lover,
filling up the spider's web above
with a ghostly, incandescent glow,
that hypnotizes me with a glimmering flow
of passionate, gleaming brilliance -
slowing down earthly time
for just a moment's soft brush
of a pulling, tidal communion.

Rose

She holds herself above the thorns of bitterness-
So sharp  and green with envy of her loveliness-
As she trembles in the chill of winter’s breath-
That stills the beating of her scarlet breast-
As  her petals fall like drops of blood 
Upon the snowy mantle white
As beautiful in death
As she was – my Rose - in life

Come Let Me Rock You Gently

Come let me rock you gently
and as we softly sway
I'll share with you a story
and rock your cares away.

In the years that I have known
there has been much I've seen
the big "to do's" the nothing days
and all those in between.

To all I've offered comfort
and a quiet place to rest
I've rocked my share of little ones
(oh, how I love them best!).

A very tender memory
of all those that I hold
is one of love and caring
that now is growing old.

A Grandma and a little girl
placed firmly on her knee
would for hours sit and play
and we would rock so free!

The laughter in their voices
(to which I'd add a creak!)
would fill my day with pleasure
and with pure joy I'd squeak!

Oh how I loved the songs they sang
and the games they played
and all the Bible stories told
when we were all so staid.

How glad I was to share it all
we were a happy set
this is my sweetest memory
(the best one I've had yet!).

Now as our time is winding down
(it's nearly at an end!)
I bid you please come back and sit
when you have time to spend.

Together we will gently sway
and stories will unfold
and I will rock your cares away
as each new one is told.

A Long Journey Made Short

Little Innocence was forged into the world 
A shrill Sound flickered around the expecting eyes
Laughter carved out of marble 
A statue thought to beat immortality 
Yet Fear had a surprise
It crept into the cradle with ease
Laughter was choked
Tears burst instead
And Sadness had a form
Evil found in youth a red soil
Jealousy marched with Envy
Lust befriended Desire
Until cupid threw a bunch of arrows
Adventure appeared
Excitement beyond description
A Thrill with no past
Sentiments were aroused
Pride threw some words
Ego played its part
And when Love meddled to defend its territory
The Heart bled in utter silence!

Lady Loneliness

I am the ghost of heartaches past
  I'm love's dark contrast

          That empty seat
            Beside you when you eat

                   The tear stains on your pillow case
                     I'm that new wrinkle on your face.

I am the gremlin of "What if?"
  If you catch my drift

          Who's biggest theme
             Is to haunt all your dreams

                   I'm that loud echo in your life
                    That constant nagging extra strife.

I am that cold spot in your bed
  I'm words left unsaid

          I'm anger won
            I'm promises undone
      
                   I'm that thing left to chance
                     I'm Lady Loneliness..... 
                       Would you care to dance?

Fast and slow….tender…rhythms rush like water
Quick chimes…rustic tendrils….feel my power

I rush upon your skin …I tease in tumult 
Belt laments of “love me ” on sandy shores
Sunrise skies…tangerine pink burst in open air
Passion’s cherry lips gasp out forever-mores

I am wide open space…fly with angel wings!
On a rush of wind…hear me taunt and drive you
I fling you on clouds too white and soft to hold you
Bathed in my brilliance….painted crystal blue

I fade in bleeding sunsets…song that softly dies
Remnants linger…particles behind your eyes 



Author's note:Für Elise in A minor for solo piano by Ludwig van Beethoven April 27 1810.
Beethoven scholars are not entirely certain who "Elise" was. Theory is that Beethoven 
originally titled his work "Für Therese"....Therese being a woman Beethoven intended to 
marry in 1810 and was also one of his students. However, she turned down Beethoven's 
proposal..It is said that Elise might have been a nickname for Therese….
This is such a beautiful piece of music and has always been one of my favorites

when

if i wanted to kiss you
would you stand still
if i wanted to be with you
could we both time kill
if i held your hand
would you understand
or carress your cheek
would you be meek
if i whispered in your ear
would you hear
if i look into your eyes 
would they lie
and tell me something else
that my heart is saying
if i wanted to love you
with all my heart
would that be smart
if i made you my reason to live
would it be worth everything i give
and if i said i love you
would you hold those words above you
forsaking all others as the preacher said
being mine and to no others lead
then my heart belongs to you
remember, to no other will i be true
with this poem i make this pact 
and with my hopes i hope you act
fill in all the love that i lack
and as for doubts
we could fill up the cracks

The Little Piece of Crumpled Silver Paper

John Weaver 2000 (Emily has cerebral palsy)

Her room is not the sort of room you’d quite expect to find
For a little girl whose love of life is clear
No toys or games or bats or balls, or fun things of that kind
No bicycle or skateboard will appear
But the little piece of crumpled silver paper

It's very cheerful and bright with pictures everywhere
A pump to feed her through the night and a big adapted chair
Though pretty dolls sit on the shelf and teddies on her bed
She cannot play with them herself so she holds them tight instead
And the little piece of crumpled silver paper

It was Christmas day some years ago with excitement in the air
When we opened her presents and then found
That she couldn’t play with them and it didn’t seem quite fair
That she would always be so cruelly bound
To a life without the toys that all children adore
And then we heard a new sound that meant so much more
A crackle from the little piece of crumpled silver paper

The expensive gifts didn’t matter to this special little girl
Her joy came from quite another caper
As the parcels and the packaging slowly started to unfurl
All she wanted was the silver wrapping paper

You see, she could grasp it tight to make a funny noise instead
And so it fast became a dear friend
And she holds it close beside her even when she goes to bed
And the lesson to be learned is, in the end…

Happiness is not always found in gifts so big and costly
And often simple things can bring the joy you need
Contentment is a state of mind and the choice is yours mostly
To be content with what you’ve got and with every little deed
Or, to always be in want and never satisfied

And so for me the real belief will never taper
That the truth of life is clear and very closely tied
To the little piece of crumpled silver paper.

The Strange Marriage of Love and Pain

Love and Pain
Decided to get married
I know it seems strange
For you would have expected
Love and affection to want to tie the knot
After all…they were similar
They socialized in the same set of word families
The artistonyms
Love and passion also wanted
To be forever joined
That everyone condoned and blessed

But, oh, how everyone laughed
At the strange request
Of Love and Pain 	
To be wed
“What’s wrong with your head?
You two are from different worlds
From antonym slums
You can’t unite
And become one!”

Love held on to Pain
And would not let her go….
He smiled a knowing smile
“There has never been
One of us without the other
We belong…
For only when you truly encounter Love
Will you experience Pain.”

Pain shed a tear
And yet she smiled
“Where Love exists
I hover near…
Have no fear
Our union will produce
Beautiful babies
Love sires Joy
A darling child
Love fathers Peace
And Tranquility, in turn
These are the children we will bear
But do beware
Love can’t survive, without Me
For how would He know
How would He be certain
That he is alive….and well
Were it not for ME!

And so Love and Pain
Were wed
Amongst great fanfare
It was a match made in heaven
For never did they depart
One from another

Love and Pain?
Not so insane
Everyone did testify
That one did not come
Without the other
They were tied together
Inseparable
Nothing could come between them
Except their little babies
The most beautiful mixed babies
That eye shall ever see!
Sweet harmony
Of Love and Pain
Who lived.......companionably ever after!

Sacred Seat: A Chair's Tale

The first thing that I recall knowing
As a sturdy and young olive tree
Extremely well rooted and growing
Was the sweltering sunlight on me

For two centuries I took deep root
To prepare for my ultimate fate
So when I could no longer bear fruit
There was then but a decade to wait

I was cut—left to dry for ten years
So that seasoned I’d perfectly be
For what the carpenter engineers
For admirers my beauty to see

Finally, the time came to carve me
Into the stout piece that would bear
The One who came down from His glory
I’d become a rough-hewn olive chair

Into the great city I traveled
The same city once fated for doom
Through alleys, then up a steep stairway
I was put in a small upper room

Beside the simple wooden table
I was placed in center position
Where the King who was born in a stable
Sat prepared to accomplish His mission

He prayed and broke bread with His brothers
As a symbol of what He would do
He blessed it then passed to the others
As His body; ’twas "broken for you"

Then to signify His precious blood
The red wine from the cup He did sip
So that it could cleanse as a flood
As from nail wounds it later would drip

To this day, I still can remember
How it felt when Christ Jesus did rest
I sensed that His love was so tender
Even when He was put to the test

He said, “Father, Father, forgive them”
As He faced His long prophesied death
The love for all things He had poured out
As He uttered His very last breath

Today, the risen Lord I remember
Whose story has long since been told
As I sit in the same dusty chamber
And recall that Last Supper of old

The Night

The night is a hand cold as stone
Wrapped around my sun - warmed body
It can make one feel so alone
And laughs at those who love the day

The night is a shady man dressed in all black
Who surrounds me as if he were many
He’ll greatly make one’s courage lack 
And terrify those who love the day 

The night is as quiet as a mouse
But yet is always seen 
He’ll silently creep into your house
And capture those who love the day 

The night is poised for a throw 
His weapon used is fear
Our inner light shall make us grow 
And protect those who love the day.

Kashmir-The woman

Kashmir is the innocent beauty of nature
It lifted me above all mire dark and dense.

Kashmir is the divine smile
It gifted me a peace beyond all of my sense.

Kashmir is the sorrow
It showed me a combined pain of poverty, corruption and terrorism.

Kashmir is the beautiful helpless unmarried woman.
Whose neighbors are trying to capture her body not sweet heart.

Kashmir is the paradise on earth without dream...

Dark Shadows

The night approaches me again and you're not here still with me 
And here under my breath I call your name and I watch your loving face 
And there among the dark shadows  you'll come back  again the same  
I hear your haunting tune and I know that you'll be waitin'  this time for me. 

Release me from all this pain I'm sufferin "Come to me"and just take my hand 
Hold me in your arms so tight and please never ever let me again go 
Together we'll dream of that other time and fly away to that  magical time band 
There is no other place like this in heaven or earth where our love can only but glow. 

Join me here tonight,hear my voice into the night and just be mine for all time 
Come to me right now and give me all your love before the night is carried away 
Let me kiss your lips,caress and love you all night til we both see a brand-new day 
Disperse all the dark shadows in which I exist,come to me and be mine for all times.

Author Notes: 

This poem amongt many others that I'd written in my life,had been inspired by 
my very favorite and most beloved vampire character of all time, 
"Barnabas Collins" from the most popular daytime soap opera series ever 
produced on T.V. in my opinion, "Dark Shadows." This whole DVD collection is most 
wonderful! 
And Jonathan Frid is so awesome!

You and she

I asked what’s worse than death, You say people that help you survive. You say: “ I don’t feel anything anymore.” You make every one out to be your enemy, But your enemy itself is you! You say that none of us care, When it’s you that don’t care. You say that none of us love you, When it’s you that doesn’t love yourself. You say you have a very empty feeling, When you are the only one that can fill it. You say we broke you down emotionally, When it was you, yourself who did it, By not talking about the things that bothered you. You say: “ I can’t go on.” When you know you can, with help, make it. You feel sorry for yourself, When you should feel sorry for those who love you. You only think of yourself and you don’t See the suffer in the eyes of other. To me she died a few days ago. To me you are a total stranger. My heart is struck with sorrow For the monster she become destroyed Everything good that’s left. To me you are a nobody, Because she would never have done What sorrow you did. To me you don’t exist, For she would never destroy What’s good in life. If only she could be here, She would clean up the destruction You caused. If she was here She would have thought of us and never Cause so much sorrow. You know time choose you, You can not choose time. For time and place and how Is special itself. Why put yourself through so much, Pain, when it is not your time to go. Where is home: heaven, earth or hell, How would you know? You sound and act so pathetic, She would never have done that. Why should I feel sorry for you. It is only you, you care about. I’ll rather weep for the person you hide Just to become a self-conscious monster When it’s only you that can stop.

The Poetess

There is a lady out there.
Who has stolen my heart.
Her poems have such insight.
They fill me with delight

Full of poignant thought.
Deep and true.
They catch my heart.
I am enthralled, by you.

I get a picture of you, every time.
Sitting there,  making rhyme
Your every word.
Imprints my soul.
I  read you. through and through.

What you write, is what you are.
Your thoughts, like a star,
I read you, like a book.
What you say, how you look.
Between the lines.
All the signs.

Three Stages of a Fire

I  

A spark is shot
Deftly, from between two fingers.
It sits, wavering on its bed
Like a lone star
Against the black,
Cold coals.
Chuckling, a candle flame shows
Its little golden head.
Sleepily, it reaches for its mother
And she, flickering, crackles her tongue
As the scorching hand upon her breast grows
And spreads.
Curious and hungry,
flamma explorat.

II  

A fire is mature, suddenly
Superior. Its arms extend,
It works, briskly it burns.
Like a tiger
It inhabits its cage.
Laughing, a blaze rises
To greet a brittle friend.
For another 
And another
Blaze yearns.
Alas! Any tears would hiss
If the glowing cheeks reminisced a kiss.
It is Love The Fuel on which its life depends.
Selfish and beautiful,
flamma vivat!

III  

The embers sift, tenderly
Nursing the staggering
Foolish old flame
Who must be coaxed to nibble and feed.
No light livens the hearth, haunted now,
Merely shadows.
In faded fame, amidst dusty fortune
The patient lies.
And it ponders as all its dazzle dies
Who taught me to hate?
Was it lack of love or lack of life
That finally dampened my fanciful play?
Slowly,
Painfully,
The gargoyle face is smothered in ash,
The soft powder of its parents fate.
And death waits
Eerily
Still
Until another is born in the grate.
Tired and lonely,
flamma extinguet.

Just A Dream

It crept up on me by surprise.
You were like a gift from God.
So sweet and tender you were the perfect
angel.
You'd kiss me so softly touch me so gentle.
Every moment was like heaven.
I'd close my eyes only to think of you.
And open them only to realize it was a dream.
A dream is what you were.
A  pigment of my imagination.
Every touch, Every kiss was just a halusination.
Everything I thought you were or could be left me hurt and
confused.
The man I've been waiting so long for.
The one that would love me like no other.
Not afraid to show any emotions.
I believe how deeply you loved and cared for me.
Only to find out you never existed.

Night Time Love

As I sit in my window sill.
Relaxed no thrill.
Time goes by, but it seems the world stands still.
I sit and gaze .
Truly amazed.
By the beauty that sits in front of me.
The stars winks at me, twinkles and dance.
So magnificant I saw in watch in a trance.
The love I felt between us must be true romance.
But suddenly it fades.
It fades so quickly and with little warning.
Because within a few moments it will soon be morning.
So sadly it leaves, but leaves with a kiss of delight.
The wind whispers its goodbyes and promise to return tomorrow night.

HipHop Is dead

Hip-Hop is dead
I can’t feel the throb, the devotion, the dedication
I wear all black
Black stilettos, black cut dress, aimed real low
Seductive but simple, I know my place
Beside the King, my sweet deceased Revolutionist 
Rap’s number one supporter, holding the casket with a broken
           S I G H
Someone plays, a radio, across the way
Slick beats drip past the ears to slime the brain
Wet and easy manipulated clay
Media displays wealth and misogyny
50 million dollar chains  
Females addicted to being slapped around
Like China Dolls in half-made    Cl    o   thes
Pose, Shawty and let this crunk beat fill your hips
Purse your lips, Mami, and I’ll let you
Be my accessory
Remember when the revolution was a evolution of the mind
Freestyles match drums in intensity
When freestyles were uncontrolled like the wild brown skin he was in
I felt, loved, Hip-hop in my veins
Let him be the catalyst  for the beating of my heart
I was so in love with his swagger, his love of himself and his people
Hat tipped real       low      to hide the pain

Beat real tight to stop the taint
Of failure and to rise like the dust after a stampede
I’d take Hip-Hop to bed every night
Let him rise and fall like the heaving of my chest
It was so hot I could barely breathe for the intensity overcoming me
The pounding of intellect in my throat
Stroked me from head to toe
And Rocked my ghetto loving soul
And he said things I’ve waited my whole life to hear
play sweetly in my ear
Dreaming of dreams too big
To let fade away
He grew shallow, loving women with hollow heads and thick thighs
Low rides and forgetting what he left at home
Long nights and overtime left me alone
Released hundreds of  artists
Torn between money and the spoken word
His best friends tried to revive what was inside, too late the damage took over
50 Cent arrived with Lil’s, and Young’s and a mess of southern heat
I was there when the light left his eyes
After Dr.Dre’s Chronic
Hip-Hop was Dead

The Succulent Flower

Do you wish to taste 
the succulent flower 
as she grows, anxious, in the garden? 
Morning’s blush arouses 
her soft pink petals 
and they become warm and moist with dew 
A sweet musky scent fills the air 
It calls to you 
and you cannot resist 
Her sultry aroma 
holds the promise 
of unabashed ecstasy 
She blooms 
open and eager 
beneath you 
She is ready to be exposed 
You brush against her petals 
and she quivers 
with anticipation 
You caress her 
teasingly, 
lovingly, 
for she is inviting 
Velvet smooth perfection 
She is yours to possess 
You reach for her 
and take her 
quickly 
You hold her close against you 
And for a brief moment 
she is all you know 
She is a prize, 
your prize, 
to be put in her place 
You display her 
so others will know your worth 
Sadly, she sits alone 
in her vase, 
withered and undesired

love's open season

There, .......in the meadow......
........exposed,
trembles my heart....
wide-open for all the
hunters of love to
view....
....frozen, in place....
muscles tense....
trying to avoid the self-
perceived dangers even
a slight flinch
may bring........

This place was once 
a garden of rejuvination
and needed space ....
that healed all wounds,
now......an unsureness fills
the misty air, revealing 
scattered pieces of what it
is this heart has been
running
from.....

words, like bullets, shot 
forth from the trusted
emotion,  called love.....
piercing, burning, betraying
my heart  of the comfort
that lured me once before
to this meadow ......

A trophy, for an insecure
hunter with no passion of
his hunt?...not .this heart , it shall
return when the timing
feels right...and the clover
does not taste
quite so
  bitter....

Never did breathless trepidation feel so right

The Dream

By John Weaver

Whenever I dream of my little girl she runs and shouts and plays
Like all the other children in all their boisterous ways
I see her skip, I see her trip; I hear her laugh and cry
Then when she’s had her fun, home she’ll run and into my arms she’ll fly
With a great big hug and a teasing tug, she’ll cuddle me close and say
‘Daddy I love you heaps and heaps’ in her cheeky little way.

Whenever I dream of my little girl, she’s healthy, fit and well
With eyes alight and a smile so bright it’s really hard to tell
That my dream is a wish and a longing, a hope for something new
For her life to be one that is normal and able-bodied too.

But then I awake and I have to forsake my dream for what is true
That she cannot walk and she cannot talk like the other children do
That she cannot shout and skip about and cuddle me close and say
The things she desperately wants to, yet in her own special way…

Instead she talks to me with her eyes and reassures me with her smile
That all is well and I can tell that she’s happy all the while
Knowing that one day in some magical way, we’ll play together and scheme
And sing and shout and skip about…in an everlasting dream.

The Petal

The petal has floated into a new vast world
The wind of harmony uplifts the petal
The petal is drifting with serendipity 
The petal is in love

Bliss is all I see, floating on winds that freed me
Dancing with others in a swooning flurry
How long will nirvana last without my tree
Time, please do not hurry 

Pity the perennial
They are isolated from winds of passion
Never taking a chance, never will they see unknown beauty 
Why are they watching us while we explore all of mother nature's creation

Fading, the sun relinquishes my mortal soul
Withering away, the earth is reaping me
Crumbling, winds spread my ashes into the sunset
I am ready, sweet death

The Old Tree

It is strange
how things that we see
and take for granted
in everyday life
should suddenly instil
in our minds
a new awareness
of their presence

A silent moment
a brief pause
from life's ever quickening pace
a moment of peace -
in times like these
a common thing
like a dried old tree
becomes alive with beauty

It stands like a quiet sentinel
who has witnessed 
many an event 
through time
Time has passed by 
but it remains 
silently standing there
O Tree!
What secrets do you store
in your noble branches?
How many events have you recorded
that man knows nothing of?

In your younger days
when you wore your mantle of green
you nested the carefree birds
to their offspring
you gave protection
When the sun scorched the earth
you gave them cool shade
On a cool windy night
you gave them warmth
How pleasant was their song 
to your ear 
as they sang a song of thanks
to you

You were a playmate to the children
When they romped at your feet
or climbed on your branches
you smiled
Time grew older
and the children became lovers
You saw them kiss in your shade
soft with the light of the moon
The aura of their love
touched your leaves
and you blushed

Today 
they have all gone away
but you still remain 
silent sentinel
still waiting and watching
How many untold events 
have you witnessed
faithful keeper of secrets?

O that my soul could commune with you
and share of your rugged beauty!
Most Noble Tree!
forgive me for my
once-waxen eyes

I Threw Caution to the Wind

I threw caution to the wind
As I stood there on the edge
Would she carry me over?
Or just leave me on the ledge?

I threw caution to the wind
Never did I really believe
That the wind was ever kind
And waiting to give relief

I threw caution to the wind
And soared upon her wings
Never really knowing
The freedom that she brings

I threw caution to the wind
And what a pleasant surprise
The wind carried back to me
All that my heart desires

I threw caution to the wind
                   I threw caution to the wind
                                      I threw caution to the wind
                                                        And the wind carried you to me!

I REALLY LOVED

you never lose by loving, if loving gets you learning,
affection filled with attraction, for the quest of satisfaction,
at first touch it's dripping, it's full of nutrients and red glowing,
forming bit by bit like lime water dripping from cave roof for a sharp construction.

you are scared to loose, don't be, that is love rule,
you're in irresistible desire zone, to be irresistibly desired;
looking in the same direction is another you were taught as rule,
its' heavy to hold itself, therefore its has to be admired,

you stood the bitterness trying, and there brilliantly you fall for something, call it a treasure in hide, sure of no invasion,
bitterness shoots up in sense of intrusion, fights back in defending, ready for anything, in the name of love protection.

now you're shaped and fashioned, thanks to our helper love,
before you were mad, agreed! there's always some madness in love,
you made it holy, that which is beautiful that you loved,
now you're hospitalized, for the serious mental damage of love.

This Day

This is a day that I could have really done without,
Saying you love me and do this to me hurts no doubt.
   Day  after day I pray that you will please stop,
What pain you've caused me has taken all I've got .
   I love you and adore you but it seems not to matter,
Still you continue to hurt me leaving my heart shattered.
   You come to me with words I have only  dreamed ,
But what they were meant for was to hurt me it seems .
    Never  have I seen a woman with so much hate ,
Taking revenge on me by disrespecting me till it hurts.
    True I have  waivered with my troubles with trust,
The one thing thats important and this is a must.
     There are no more words or sayings that will ever work,
I have tried everything  I know giving it all that its worth .     
     To the day I die I will never understand why ,
The woman I love does everything to make me cry .
     So this my dream to be forever with you ,
Is only nightmares for me  and dying is all I can do.
     This a day I surely could do without.

My Avocado

My fruit from the tree of love/ 
Branches of sweetness with no bravado our future’s fragrance is bravo/ 
I have no words without your rubbery skin and smooth lips/ 
I dished up smiles before your visit with no limits/ 
Though you grew in the woods/ 

Allow me to welcome you in my hood/
Life is drying up and dying rough/
Hunters peel any moving dressed up skins it’s no bluff/  
Ship from your town to my township and that’s a tip/
Your fleshy vivid body sparkles predictable smiles and love from a distance trip/ 

Your body I would climb if you let me/ 
Your brunches I would massage if you let me/ 
I dream to seed your womb with vigorous multiple fruits till eternity/ 
I dream to rescue you from discarded cuddles and refrigerators/ 
Your cold days will be warm in my arms/ 

My avocado this is my shameless affectionate avow/
My heart holds no snakes, monkeys, scratchy cats, lizards or mythical wizards/ 
My tongue your shower/ 
My lips your perfume/ 
Your tears I will screen clean till they’re embittered no more/
And that’s a promise with a sexy salad/

First Crush: You Crushed My feelings forever

For the boy who had gone through his first crush..  wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

 First Crush: Crushed My feelings forever!!

Her epitome of innocence and virtue made me sick.
Friend around me suddenly pricked.
Scene from the titanic in my mind clicked.
I lost somewhere else and she squandered the opportunity.
Crazy girl, You clinged my heart!!

She was suffice so as I.
Looking at her radiant smile, I was blessed.
My feelings blushed on my cheeks.
God had postulated the first law of love.
Was it the infatuation?? Was it the love??
Crazy girl, Your face is glued on my heart!!

Blue whales diving down deep into the sea.
Molluscan shell in her arms, holding the glittering pearl.
Sun and moon playing the game of hide and seek.
God showered the ecstatic divineness.
Love arised from both the ends .
Her expression occupied the quadrangle of my soul.
Crazy girl, Your adorable persona sticked on my mind!!

My friends tagged her as my Queen.
But it was just a mystery.
I waited till last..
But She didn't rebelled the three precious words.
Desperately waited for the moment.
But When i saw her with his boyfriend.
Crazy girl, You killed my heart!!

Getting goosebumps,
Just left tears in my eyes.
Each and every memories of mine are fragmentized.
Just left with the ashes of moments that we share together.
Life just can't stop without being you.
But you are the luckiest one to be remembered for life time.
Crazy girl,My crush,You crushed my soul!!  with Suyog Pagare

Treasure of My Heart

Yamaha impressed me the first time I laid eyes on her glistening blond maple wood, her stylish body details, her long fretted mother-of-pearl inlay; lobed with golden keys. Her voice called to me the first time I held her in my arms. I strummed her six strings slowly in the key of G, then moved softly to D and C. All the while, I searched earnestly for her purity in sound quality and style. She was not the most beautiful in the showroom. But oh yes! She did flatter me with her musical presence. She was beautiful to me! I knew from that moment on she would be mine for eternity. 

Within the hour, I took her home to meet the family. She was shy on the journey, not making a sound; perhaps due to this being her first automobile ride or simply wanting to see a world she was now a part of. Yamaha was cased in alligator leather, a brown dressing which was stylish for the day. We were both nervous as we arrived and got out of the car. My strong caressing grip on her handle assured her she wouldn’t fall and it would be alright. She knew it would be alright as I smiled at her. 

I opened the door, allowing her to enter first. When in the living room, I called to everyone to come meet the newest member of the family. Dad was taken by her simple yet elegant beauty and style. Mom touched her first and she was most pleased. At that moment I realized the importance of first impressions as Mom marveled at how pretty she was. I sat down in the best chair in the living room while Mom listed to Yamaha talk and I sang a popular country love song.  I was pleased with the family acquaintance to Yamaha. It was evident she had become a part of the family.

 The first few weeks, I couldn’t keep Yamaha out of my arms. I longed to be with her every minute of the day. In my eye, she made me smile by just gazing upon her. I fumbled with her in those beginning days. She ignored my elementary attempts at refinery and permitted me the time to catch up to her mastery rather than bow down to my level. Like any two lovers, both must reach to the need of the other. Only then is love truly in harmony. 

Today, Yamaha is not the young glistening blond I held in my arms some thirty years removed. Her wood has been scared by my love to play her. She has received countless face lifts which cover her tainted mother-of-pearl. Her brown leather case dress stands in need of a seamstress care. But as with all things having been learned through love, we now make beautiful music together. She is my treasure, a light into my soul's well. She amplifies my inner being. As I perform, she is glorified. We have grown old together,and gotten better in time. I still hold her in my arms day by day as this lover has risen to her grace and expectations. She is my treasure for a life time.

Trip and fall

I tripped and fell in love/
She set my mind on high heels/
I could not walk her voltage love/
I tripped and fell in love/
Malicious care collapsed before her face/
She skydived my soul in questions/

Subsequently/

I tripped and fell in love/
Non liquid love attacked my solid blushes   
Infatuation sent my love to the ground
Dimensions in smiles 
The concrete surface of my love
I tripped and fell in love
The ground i kissed
She borrowed me her hips
To land on 
She's my sponge 
Duplicating tons and tons of keys to her heart 
I did

She saw my heart 
Her tears dimpled my earth 
Beats building safety and silent screams
No you hang up kind of warranty 
Empty pockets saved by the moon for candle lights
Elbows bruised
Kilimanjaro hips i longed to climb
I tripped and fell in love
Veins escaping blood
Searching for get away context
The bond between grew 

Our hugs planted roots 
Legs intertwined stinking undividable romance 
No perfume can kill our love stench
My master woke up 
I tripped and fell in love
This is no love idea
But reality at its own feet
Walking my dreams and longings
This home i build 

The joints between my thighs and legs pushed me down 
One knee
Sexy imaginations started placing reflecting romantic proposals
In one knee

Awesome beats came in heart beats 
Propositions made its way to love streets
Awesome beats came in heart beats 
Eliminate rats around the love street
Awesome beats came in heart beats 
Less cops safe for us in love Street
The comedy ruled we thought we still kids

My breath urinated joy
Conversations came in multiple smokes
Smiles flew in speed of cats 
Time delay enjoyable split seconds  
The sky became our mirror 
I tripped and fell in love

On My Eighty Fifth Birthday


On My Eighty Fifth Birthday

Another Birthday…I’m still alive
Never thought that I’d survive
To the ripe old age of Eighty Five!
But here I am…feisty still
Even though I’m over the hill!
Don’t count me out...Don’t ring that bell
I’m still here and raising hell!

Had a few blimps along the way
But I’m not leaving, I’m here to stay
Still have plans…I’m not done yet
I may do things I may regret
But I’ll have fun doing it
You can bet!

It matters not how old  you are
You can dream your dream
Or follow your star
Your flesh may fail you
Your steps may be slow
More and more wrinkles start to show
But there is one thing I surely know

A  man isn’t judged by how he looked
Or the size of his fortune or pocketbook
The greatest legacy he leaves behind
Isn’t intelligence or a fertile mind
But the love he gave to his family and friends
A heart full of love always transcends
Fame and fortune in the end 

So Happy Birthday again to me
How many more…..?
We’ll just have to see
In the meantime friends
You’ll be hearing from me!

THE TRUTH


1.
This is Truth that to you, the mortals, is now speaking, 
I’m the one that in the kernel of everything that exists resides,* 
That no human has ever seen**, up to this very moment and
No one, I affirm will able be, eyes to set upon my
Divine essence!*** 

2.
I know, the vast majority of you believe to be with me, very
Well acquainted,
Some even declare that the best of my friends are and 
Instead of me they could do the talking
Even there are those who boast to be my associates and  
The ultimate reality only them to know
Thus
Each one of them “his truth” declares according to his doctrine,
Fervently maintaining the veracity of his established principles, 
The principles of his policy, his history, his religion, his morals
That with me, the Truth, I assure you, have very little in common.  

3.
So, I the Truth, with many faces came to you be known
As different colors are always used to paint my visage,
Colors with hues of their opinions to better fit their purpose
According the era they are living in, their reason and 
Understanding  

4.
If a day, I the Truth, among them decided just a walk to take
Certain am I that no one of them, would able be, me to recognize  
For the bigotry that is deep in their uninformed heart planted 
Unable has made their eyes the supreme Truth to identify 

5.
Enraged am I, of all those criminals who kill in my name,     
Regardless their color, their creed, their sex, their ethnicity,
For even if a little bit they knew me, never would they 
Commit a crime
For 
I, the Truth next to God live. It’s from Him I draw my existence,
Impossible thus for me it is, divinity’s will to disobey 
And commend someone to do something that is immoral
Because God is love*** and love, you should know my friends,
Never commits a crime! 


© Demetrios Trifiatis
    07 OCTOBER 2014
 

* There is nothing that we with certainty know, because the truth is found in the depths of each thing! 
Democritus , Greek philosopher, 5th century B.C.,  the father of atomic theory

 **No man has ever perceived the truth, neither anyone in the future will know it, only opinion of things have we for the reality of things! 
Xenophanes, Greek philosopher 6th century B.C.    

***John, epist. First, verse 8. “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love!

If you can bear it

Why can't I say it?

If you want to hear it?

No, no, or never

My Beautiful You - A Poem for Valentine's Day

Like the fragrance of honeysuckle clinging to the vine,
Like sea spirit salt rides the inshore breeze,
Like the sun dappled fields of summer, please...
Be mine... my beautiful you... be mine.

Like the flowers I bring you every so often,
Like the ones I should bring you every day,
Be wild and pure and wait there for me,
To see and to take you, my beautiful you.

Like the curves of your body, bending
Behind the glisten of the glass shower stall,
Like sweet nicknames floating down the hall...
Be my mystery ever unfolding, my beautiful you.

All the holidays, like yesterday, I still remember, 
Wrapped up with you around the tree…
Leaves falling round us in a crisp September,
As we walk through our seasons, you and me.

And now the twilight's chimney smoke calls us,
Back to the hearth and home we've made,
With little ones who look like you and me,
Our love's perfect union, our soul's sweet serenade.

Through all the days of our days, I'll need you,
So be the breath I cannot live without, 
The April morning's rain - mist for my midsummer's drought…
All the holiday's I remember...
Leaves falling round us in a crisp September.

The fragrance of you floating through the hall,
Into my soul's senses, please, be all...
Worth recalling, worth living and dying for...
My beautiful you, my beautiful you...

Be Mine.

Metaphor of fraud

Metaphor of fraud

 

In the road of loneliness I remake my morning prayers
Yellowed silence buries last memories

 
Autumn and curtain above my book are broken
Yearly rain writes an anonymous journal

 
There are no words between metaphors of tears
I bite darkness, fonts and white letter

 
Due to the rust of time the promise digests
In the corners of ignorance a broken violin hushes

 
Char lips I begin the ballad of fraud
A frozen key cannot reopen any door anymore

 
The same you walk and smash, the same you wake up, 
the same you raise and fall,
Lie and cry or be quiet, but kiss the mornings in the heart

Heart

Don't explode yet
Let yourself bleed
Don't close your door yet

The cure to your wound
Is the thing that broke you
Close your door only to her.

Dreams riding white horses

Days buried in the snow to save
Recollections touching the grave
Moved by wind in desert of ice,
Moved far from the sea of thy eyes
In the forgot countries of glass;
With wasteful waves they quickly pass.
Stars gather them in their cold lights,
Dropping from sky, they burn our sights.
Longitude of longing new heights 
Looms wave shinning hopes in checked nights

Windows with ice-flowers covered,
Know how their old perfumes were robbed
By young snowmen knocking at door
And asking at what colored floor
Is the blond spring`s good fairy hid?
Wind blows from the other side
Of horizon humming a lied;
Sleepy snowdrops started to read
About dreams riding white horses,
Climb up the mountain of Moses!

The Perfect Woman

 Since I was a boy I have known of her . I've dreamed of her in my fantasies , I have visioned you in my thoughts.Never knowing why or how or 

where she came from, Just she was there .Not ever did I see her face ,but I've known all the while of her beautiful smile. Eyes of an Angel , I can  

see all the way to her soul. Hair that flows over her shoulders like a waterfall.  . Just a dream in my head , my imagination gone wild , but I have 

always known she would be mine one day , A goddess  I will cherrish as my Queen and love her with all my heart. Spoil her with gifts and 

treasures, what ever she likes .The girl of my dreams I have honestly seen .I have spoken to her  and it is exactly as it was suppose to be . She's in 

love with me. Oh and she is the prettiest thing, this woman thats always been in my dreams .I was put here to meet her and she to meet me . I have 

always been in her dreams ,that's what she's been telling me . A match made in Heaven is what she claims, a love forever , a happiness for life , a 

Joy in our hearts that makes our lives worth living. Every since I was a boy I have known her. This woman of my dreams.

DREAMING

LAST NIGHT MY HEART WAS HEAVY AND MY SPIRIT WAS WEAK.

I WAS TOTALLY NUMB WITH NO WORDS TO SPEAK.

I SAW PEOPLE WHO HAD WALKED THROUGH MY LIFE WHO WERE NO LONGER ON THIS EARTH.
 
I WANTED TO CRY BUT NO TEARS CAME FROM MY EYES NOTHING BUT JOY CAME UPON ME.

I REALIZED THAT THEY HAD TO LEAVE FOR A REASON THEY WERE NO LONGER SUFFERING.

I GOT TO TALK TO THEM AND BE IN THEIR PRESENCE BUT THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I WOKE UP AND IT WAS ALL A DREAM.

I BECAME SAD AND THEN I KNEW THIS WAS ALL MEANT TO BE SO I LET IT GO.

KEEPING THEM IN MY HEART AS I GO WITH THE FLOW.

No one to tell

Searing love does not fade 
It simply lies in wait in hollow partitions 
Prone to sudden gusts  
of breathlessness 
These come in waves 
Some driving brusque prickles  
Others curling unhinged senses 
into further disorder 
Yet others stirring a cruel blend of  
cupidity  
and reason 

The waves prompt a light-headed 
introspection 
About confidence in a fractured shell 
About love with no one to tell 

They commit to change 
But winds carry a familiar scent 
Songs are about us 
And she’s in every silhouette  

The scent and songs 
swirl around the hollow partition like dreams  
Walls are tested 
to the point of rapture 
And still,
there is no one to tell 

Memories merge with the scent and songs  
Crafting a cogent immunity to time 
Our past is fused 
Changing seasons bear credence 
to the tenet of hope 
But tomorrow hangs on meanings 
crammed into last words  
Laughter ceases 
And searing love seeks deliverance… 
But 
there is no one to tell

FEELING THE VOID

I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR SO LONG TO FIND SOMEONE WHO SEE ME FOR ME.

PERFECTED NOT BUT KIND, LOVING AND FIRM.

WHO WOULD SEE ME FOR THE PERSON THAT I AM FLAWS AND ALL.

WANTING SOMEONE WHO WOULD BE THERE FOR ME AS WELL AS I BE THERE FOR HIM.

ARE MY FEELINGS IN VAIN OR ARE THEY FOR REAL IN THESE EMOTIONS ARE TRULY FEEL.

THE PEN IS RIGHT

THE PEN IS RIGHT
When white meets black
Letters are seen
When light meets dark
Secrets are seen

It’s no sin to confide in men seen
Like short memory, they too will fade
Happy are you if you thirst for the God unseen
For by Him is all things perfectly made

The dots on my “I”s spell perfection
The cross on my “t”s define completion
But my eyes have seen no all
Even teas brew so sour

Don’t trust my first thrust
Else you see your trust rust
As cold as ice’s frost
We all shall shroud in the dust

Mind neither my cap nor my fissure
For it was mould by man
But I shall decide its pressure
Delivering in you much needed pleasure;
On time, always like a delivery van

Who Cares For The Carer

By John Weaver & Dedicated to Liz

Who cares for the carer? is the question that I ask.
Who is helping them help another with their overwhelming task
Who is trying to ensure they remain healthy, fit and strong
As they nurse and feed the one in need all day and all night long?

Who thinks about the carer? is the thought that comes to me
When all thought is for the needy and that’s the way it ought to be
But just a little bit of thoughtfulness would not go astray
For the one who works and struggles without a thought for pay.

Who worries about the carer? is my other great concern
If they should fall to sickness where would the needy turn?
The one they love is the one they want and on whom they depend
To wash and feed and dress them and to be with them to the end

Who would care for the needy? is the fact we have to face
If something happened to the carer then who would replace
That committed and devoted, caring loving soul
Who gave their all without complaint in a hard and stressful role.

But we know who will care for the carer 
When their mortal coil is through
When all their earthly labours get the recognition that is due
When at last they can rest eternal with no further demands
In peace and joy and secure in the Greatest Carer’s hands.

His Special Ability

Experiencing many different emotions, it is shocking to my soul.  Such an intense attraction drawing me in, surprising I am complete as a whole.

Finally full and complete within, a satisfation I've never experienced before. Finally someone able to find the hidden key, the only key that can unlock my safty door.

Gratified in every way possible, he has broken through the barrier I've been hiding behind for years.  Complete in life and in love, finally able to let go of all my fears.

With a smile on my face and happiness in my heart, my dream has come true.  He is my definition of perfect, from day one, my heart and head just knew.

He leads me through many exciting adventures, packed full of pleasant surprises.  Everyday he gives me something new, the intensity level constantly rises.

As the relationship continues, the emotions get more intense.  Surprising me every chance he gets, my suspense level balances on the fence.

It hit me like a tons of bricks, how fast I needed what he had to offer.  His eyes, his touch, his love and charm, made me a little softer.

Everyday I look forward to where this will lead, but I am excited as a couple what we have become.  Enjoying every moment as it's our very first, my heart constantly beats like a drum.

We have been through many trials and tribulations, with every memory I keep on replay.  DeShane, you are the one meant for me, in my mind, in my heart and in my soul, is where I want you to stay!

If These Walls Could Talk

If these walls could talk? I know they can.
I hear them whisper every night.
They do not speak unless it’s dark
And quiet down at morning’s light.

The corner wall’s the very worst,
The one that’s nearer to my bed.
He is a blatant listener,
Repeating every thing that’s said.

I heard him tell the walls and chairs,
“I hear her crying in her sleep.”
I can’t see why he doesn’t know,
There are some secrets he should keep.

“She holds her pillow to pretend
She’s not alone in that big bed.”
Walls have no hearts so they can’t feel
The sorrow when loved one is dead.

Now that I am left alone,
Their whispering is hard to bear.
As I have said, walls have no hearts
And little sympathy to share.

My Gold Dream

Journalism!
My gold dream,
So out competing it's.
Sighted by a crowd.
Embraced by few.
Outrank on screen it's.
I love journalism!

Journalism!
Adventurous it's.
Sounds of rockets in netherworld,
Not about to transfix a journalist,
But only sought-after,
I love journalism!

Journalism!
It's a dream in me,
A dream of gold and my cheese!
I want to fit in the press shoes,
Now I got to write, report and broadcast.
Journalism don't gravity me!

Ode to Rita and Maddie

Wade through the lake’s water so shallow, A woman & a man hands entwined like a gallow. Wade did she, Wade did he. Above their necks the furious waters rose, Trod they together steps softly with no morose, Spellbound they moved without a care, Deeper and deeper where no one would dare. Trod they further unto the middle they reached, Realized she now an early vow she had breached, No further she could wade, But bitter memories afar refrained they to fade. Drifting by now so weak was she, So clasped them eyelids so all she could see was he, A time came on when a boat roared by, A wave it created ,it washed her eyes. The heady din grown a was peaking, Alas! Her dream was at an end that she was seeking. The fingered band, beacon it began, A time had come her life to regain. Realized, she that moments spent in love, Will fly away now like the dove. Struck her like a bolt to her love away, Will he take me home today? Guessed she by now that the time was over for her space, And on the pathway her love left behind in a cold place. A now thinks she that dwells in another dimension, Poor man left aghast to brood and fate too cruel to mention. Ghastly her act ,in all this land had never been, People shun now the disheartened lover whenever he be rarely seen. Stares does he strangely at the door, For he believes that the path will bring her once more…

Buzzing Girlfriend

I wish I was young
What can I hear
Taunts
Fricken life
What is happening 
Happy childhood
Morning flying
Crying over past memories
What do I do now
I can’t fly
I am sick
Help me
For the lesson of God
Maverick Lord
I am asleep
For youse

the letter

i keep holding on that letter she wrote
i can't believe that is the last final note
with solomn saddness each line is read
and constant questians fill my head
why did i love her and lead her on
she was'nt fooled by the love i'd shown
and my alter ego has been left alone
no one really to call his own
with this a history has been made
an alter ego with a failing grade

Secret Desires of a Poem

Secret Desires of a Poem

I don't want to be pretty...
I want to be an ugly truth
And you are too fascinated
To look away-
I want to be
Breathtaking.
I want to make you-
Feel something.

I want you to read
Each line like the eyes
Of your lover...
Because I want to
Break your heart.

DISTANCE

Sometimes I still use a cordless house phone. 
When I call her I imagine her wrapping an invisible cord around her finger 
as if she were only walking slowly the opposite direction as the cord stretched further. 
When she talks she says she likes to feel her voice as it runs away from me. She says that she wants me to believe distance is just a myth our minds created. When she held me I was a last box on a moving van. I was stretched out like piano wire waiting for a hammer to knock the breath back into me. Her hands forced me upward like keys pounding harmony. 

She is the hottest day of summer telling me to wake up and find water and her bed is an oasis. 
Our clothes scattered a mosaic across the paint spotted carpet. 
We read to each other from the bookshelf on the corner. 
The one that sagged in the middle until all its shelves were smiling, ready to laugh loose their stories. 
The morning she left the half-closed shades left cords of sunlight stretching across her chest 
and I traced them but there were highways, and she the smallest country. 
When she calls me she traces her breath as it spirals like a hurricane to the wall and bounces between cities. Her voice is strangled with 350 miles of telephone lines. 
The clothes we dressed our floors with for months have been stripped away. 
The room is naked now and the bookshelf, half empty. When I think of that house 
she is the only thing I can remember. Everything else fades, the room disappears entirely and I remember only having lived inside her. Home is where the heart is. 

The first astronomers who looked up there had to have discovered sparkling new words about how far two things can be. We build telescopes to force everything closer. 
I have built myself a telescope with bed posts and bathroom mirrors. 
On warm nights I climb to the top of my room and look west where the world curves her away from me. I know now why the myth of a flat earth existed for so long. 
It is not a story of people afraid of falling but of people terrified of growing apart, 
reading that if you stare hard enough at the horizon, you’ll be able to find anyone who is left you. But “listen” she says. The blind man on my block had his cataracts removed. 
He told me when he looked out his window for the first time he couldn’t understand why his hand was larger than the houses across the road. 
He couldn’t grasp how things look smaller at a distance so close your eyes. 
Stop looking for me in satellites fading below the skyline. Let us make this world flat again. 
I am always right here. 
This continent is just our kitchen table. 
These highways piano strings. 
The same note ringing resonating between us.
God keeps our sight stronger with eyes that we will never see by looking in a mirror.

We Heard the Ocean Speak

I can go ahead and personify the ocean
As this pen has been granted the poetic license
To carve a soul from a still object-
And make the ocean take the form of man.

The soft sand shaking forth beneath our feet
The sweet salty smell of the ocean-
Caresses our nostril to the presence of nature
As we watch the image unfold-
Of such huge expanse of water with ships lacing its trails.

So the sun came right above the sky
Embracing us with his scorching arms
Sending waves of heat upon the earth-
As we scamper to find a shade to rest our legs.

So we watched the waves wash the sea up the sand
And watched as half naked men dive headlong into the sea
And there by the shore some set their dice to roll upon the sand.
Just you and me; we watched as the day sailed by
And beggars raised their hands for token-
And little unfortunate boys walked hungrily behind their mothers.

Together we heard it speak,
As it tells us of how beautiful life is,
And how tumultuous the world could be,
So we should expect it.
It speaks to us about the joy that abound
When two people confide in the other,
So we should embrace it.
It speaks to us of how marvelous God is;
So we should seek Him.

Let’s bury our worries in the sand of yesterday
As the ocean speaks to us-
Of men who have been lost in the wind of vain
And of people staggering effortlessly in chain.
Man is history; just a filament of a story.

We heard the ocean speak,
So beautiful and terrifying,
We heard it shriek.

Morning Embrace

morning salutes the new coming day
 as the sun looks down tenderly
casting it's eyes to the two lovers 
  **  sitting**

mornings breath blew gently upon their faces
as they nestled in a warm embrace
    clinging

I HATE THE WORD 'LOVE'

Love, I hate you but you pretend  not seeing me,
Those that love you are like you,
Through you many has paid with their lives.
The rich speak of you yet they kill, destroy and steal;
who really love us or the world we all lived?
I will not love until genuine LOVE comes.
Genuine LOVE created the world but imperfect love;
Created hunger, greed, evil, bombing and terrorism.
I hate those that love you in pretence.
Humanities loves you yet they break each other's heart,
Women, drinks you daily like water; speaks of you than God, yet you break homes.
Souls are waiting for perfect and caring Love that once given freely;
There will be peace if you all love me as it were in the beginning,
I hate you since humanities will not stop using  you to destroy.
Oh LOVE of God when will you return?
Souls are waiting your voice of caring and equality,
when you come, I will love again.

Pastor Emmanuel.

Bittersweet

You make me smile , you make me laugh , you make me cry , and you make me sad . Deep down I love you with all of my heart. I love the warmth of your body and your soul all as a whole. Your one hell of a man , and sometimes I admit you got me wrapped around your hand. Ill come running like the wind , just because you said so. When we first met we had a chemistry that a story was untold. We are so much alike in so many ways , its crazy .... laughing , smiling , hugging , kissing ,listening , talking , butterflies in my stomach. You make me think way to much , my head starts to hurt , ups and downs , happy but sad..... stories untold ... feelings being hidden , not much being said ... just the voices in each others head .... irritated because we can't get our feelings out to each other ... mad for days and not saying a single word....the hurt and pain .... just from talking to you all day .... that leaves me standing in the cold all alone not knowing what is going on... confused and abused .... happy and joyful this is bittersweet and very unsure... Im not sure what to call us , but I need something more....

Why Should I

Was it enough or was it too much?
Sometimes too fast but always too slow!
God knows that I come with these seeds that grow.
Inside and out I absorb every single touch,
But why should I?
Why should I be the only one that knows?
Stepping through time and sliding back so smooth so I go!
I say I can qualify!
Where was I and why was I there?
Sometimes too obvious but always with doubt!
God knows that I come riding in on a prayer.
I absorb every single touch inside and out,
But why should I? 
Why should I be the only one that cares?
Climbing the highest mountains and sliding down so steep but on a dare!
I say I can magnify!

What did I say and what did I do?
Sometimes too quite but always too loud!
God knows that I come with a gleam that shines so proud.
Inside and out I absorb every single touch by you.
But why should I? 
Why should I be the only one in the crowd?
Walking on water and walking backwards but at least I know how.
I say I can intensify!
Do I want to or do you need me to?
Sometimes I wonder and sometimes I simply don’t care.
God knows that I come standing on a higher sky of blue.
I absorb every single touch by you inside and out with this glare.
But why should I?
Why should I be the only one with this view?
Up in the clouds and aimless but always led by you!
I say, “I SANCTIFY”!

Luna, My Love


Dear Luna, where have you been?
I dreamed a thousand times of your pale beauty.
Now, you return with stars upon your cape,
Flaunting your mysterious ways before me.

I'm mad in love with you, dear Luna,
The most beautiful of all the evening ladies,
That entices broken souls such as I.
Take my hand to walk with me through life.

No? So, I hear you say as you withdraw,
Pulling clouds about you to hide your face.
My path the darker now without your love,
There's no solace for me at your rebuff. 

A whisper plays softly across a gentle breeze,
“I will not change my ways, though I favor you the most,
I am a wanton lady on my trek, following the sky.”
Then, she glanced my way again, and winked into the night.

UNSPEAKABLE PAIN

A DARKNESS HAS OVERSHADOWED ME WITH A SADNESS THAT IS 
OVERWHELMING.

NUMBING MY SPIRIT, FREEZING MY SOUL AND LEAVING ME COLD.

LONELINESS DROPPED ON ME LIKE A HOT POTATO.

SHAKING ME INTO ISOLATION.

MY HEART IS SHATTERED AND MY MIND IS HALLUCINATING.

WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE WAY I FEEL THEY SEEM TO DISAPPEAR FROM 
MY MOUTH.

AFTER THE SHOCK LEFT MY BODY THE TEARS BEGAN TO FLOW FROM MY 
EYES.

I SCREAMED UNCONTROLLABLY UNTIL I WAS BREATHLESS.

MY MIND BEGAN TO RACE AND MY HEART BEGAN TO ACHE.

ASKING MYSELF HOW MUCH MORE CAN I TAKE.

I WAS LEFT IN DISBELIEF BY SOMEONE THAT I CARE FOR SOMEONE THAT I 
LEANED ON.

NOW I AM ALL ALONE DIGGING FOR ANSWERS TO WHY THIS HAS HAPPENED.

WHY HAS THIS COME ABOUT THE RUG HAS BEEN PULLED FROM UNDER MY 
FEET.

WHERE MY HEAD AND THE GROUND SOON MEET.

WHAT MORE IS THERE FOR ME TO SAY BUT THAT I MUST CARRY ON EACH 
DAY.

WHILE DARKNESS LURKS IN MY PRESENCE.

Too young to remember , remembering is all I can do , stories told , may different , not never knowing the truth , a scar for life , not knowing the story behind it all , feeling like a leap and a frog , alone always and forever , standing strong on my own tow feet with no support , about this time I still have tears in my eyes, hurting and weeping from all the pain thats inside, feeling abandoned at a young age, my heart filled with hurt and emotion , like a boat on a ocean , screams and fights , something that I didn't like , it never excites me , it just makes me wanna go far way , running way all the time was getting old and leaving me out in the cold with no place to go , house to house , different rules , different place , different race and different pace. Ive been through hell and back again. 7:00 , lying on the floor , stomach growling , tears falling , left alone , hurting inside , just about to cry , flooding my face , with a salty taste , forgetting my race , forgetting my struggles , going blank with no trace , comes to comfort me , I pull away , with a lot of force , not wanting to be loved by someone who hurts me the most , running away thinking its a better place more hurt occurs , not giving no one a chance , to dance in my present , but finally I give in to something special to me , he who sees the best in me , he who takes me for myself , he who loves me more than ill ever know, he that stunts but deep down he's feelings truly shows , he that I love with all my heart , he that I don't want to leave , he is something like my everything , he is so much like me , he you wouldn't understand , he is my man , I could keep going on and on forever but Ill just end it here this time....

GOLDEN ASHES

Golden ashes


You are as gold in my eyes;
How I see your rise
So deep I pry
Still then I cry

Can I ever run away from you?
you light up my dreaded end
Like chyme in my belly
Your end is nearing time

You stick so close to my lip;
How I wish I could skip
But you bring forth strength
Only to rent my fears for a while

Still stuck in the mystery of you;
I await your dusk
A thousand tusks is no publicity
Compare to your futility

We long for your history
Although reality long beckons
You stay true to the demon you are
You’re an illusion as to Golden Ashes

How do I express my love for you all - a love that is stronger than tropical storm. A 
fury that will never stop feuding because of the depth of our love that is spoken 
between our hearts. A bond that will never be broken because we are bound by 
love that is deeper and stronger than a tornado storm. Faith has brought us 
together which is destine forever. A love that will never be interrupted by life's 
challenges because our love is bound by a never-ending phrase of our hearts.

if these walls could talk

If these walls could talk
They would have narrated my story
How without you, I live in a constant shock
How I have lost all my  past glory

Witness to my  everlasting misery
My walls would have wailed for me
At least ,they would have made a query
whenever I am lost somewhere in me

Sharing my lonely nights
Seeing me crawl into that cold bed
Knowing all my shivering frights
Crying for me ,as if I am dead

I would  have talked to them about you
About the love we shared
All that ,that happened between me and you
About the life, when we were paired

Living  with this eerie  loneliness
The only noise ,is of a clock
With your hatred creeping into me ,as illness
I wish these walls could talk…..

I need a fortuneteller

"Why isnt the phone ringing"? I keep thinking to myself.
Did he already put his heart and us, high upon a shelf?

I have'nt been gone 24 hours and I feel as though I am not missed.
My mind keeps going back to the last time we kissed.

It was gentle and sweet, filled with desire..
He put my mind in a whirlwind, and set my body on fire.

Why cant he love me? as i love him?
I wish he'd open his heart and let me in!

I don't know how long to try, or even if I should?
I don't want to think I should have gotten out while I could.

I'm already in so deep, he owns my fragile heart.
From him, i wish to never part.

Will he break this heart, will I cry endless tears?
or will we be together for many happy years?

I need a fortuneteller, a genie or a magicball
To just fill me in, tell me all.

Oh mine! Oh mine!
As the crust of the earth
The wind blows north south
Waiting for that day when it brings you west
Imaginations are filled
Thoughts overflows the heart
Mine o mine far away you seem
Echoes coming from an angle 
Even as it fades away
Wishes are selfish as its all that matters 
Hope will find you before i pass
Fate will bring you even after death
the battle field is a field of love 
My hearth throb will be here
Longing for my touch....
This side or the other.

" Ode to my Love "

Who is this rare gem thus my eyes behold?;
with one quick sweeping glance you cast your love spell upon me.
Like the magestic river Nile your love flows thru me filling the resevoirs of my heart.

Your eyes are like diamonds sparkling ,set  in the night sky on a fair night in June.
Your hair is like the finest silk flowing through my hands as I caress you ever so tenderly.
Your lips are like strawberries tender and sweet to the taste;oh how I love them.
Your hands are like velvet cushions soft and soothing to the touch.
Your body is likened to that of a young gazelle running in the forest.
Your smile illuminates the deepest,darkest depths of my soul, ushering in  feelings of joy.

Come let us embrace with passion under the moonlight and cast shadows upon the rocks 
until the breaking of day.
Some women are fair but you surpass them all. Our love shall go on even after we are both 
resting in eternity......my love.

PEZ DiSpenser

Being used.
Take everything out of me, 
& on the days i’m not wanted, 
I am left emptied 
all of the way out.

A pleasant ‘medicine’ to show others just how good I make you feel, & how good I taste.
I’d be lying to say that hearing those words doesn’t make me spring right back up even in a setting as disintegrating as this. 
I’m still here, ready to break off a piece of plastic from my narrow body for you.
It is you after all. I’d do it if I had too.

But, you confuse me.

You keep my head lifted & it keeps you entertained. 
I like it, kind of. It’s like we’re getting to know each other’s touch, and see similar smiles to those of when we first met. 
This makes it easier not to think too much about how I’m handled.
But
You’ve never treated me this way. 
I’ve gotten my big head stuck before by trying to fill myself up with much more than you needed, 
but this feeling of loneliness by you is unfamiliar. 
I love you, I say. I love you, I show.
You love me, you say. You love me, I believe.

I hate the feeling of feeling cheap. You told me that I was especially manufactured for someone of your taste, & I believe every word of that.

Stop pressing my head down into my stomach, please.
I’m starting to get sick of not seeing everything that kept me full of your every desire to see me smile.
I could never be naive enough to say that I can fulfill who you are, 
because I have a purpose that involves much more than 
going up and down, emptying my insides with temporary dissolving gestures.
But I know I can share with you 
the essence of being the someone who treats you as good as the planets you can’t see. 
So align me inside the atmosphere of your care, & I’ll pick you up before you can say, “deSpenser”

I Cannot See You In The Fog

The tides roll in; I do not see them,
As the fog breathes in, obscuring the sun,
Just a moment ago, you were here beside me,
But the fog stole in, and now you’re gone.

In the daylight, we were so very bright,
As diamonds sparkling in the sands of time,
Two pearls together in a single shell,
We left to see what lay beyond.

And somewhere upon our newfound shores,
We let our eyes wonder for a moment's glimpse,
To see if what we shared was true,
And ignored that fog growing ever dense.

Yet sometimes the fog is what we need,
To teach us how to walk alone,
So when our daylight comes breaking through,
It's not the WHERE, for which we care...

But for the WHO is our true home.

So meet me down on the shores of time,
My darling, when the daybreak springs,
Lay your soft head on my wearied chest...
Let the tides roll in and do the rest...

They’ll sweep us back into forever,
That together, forever we shall never loose,
Except again, when a fog rolls in...
And the home we are, is the one we choose.

Of Hope, Dreams, and a Love

The four walls envelope me
Holds me down within it
A place I neither enjoy nor desire
I feel lost within these walls
They are so restrictive on me
Keep my life to a minimum
I don’t live when I’m in them
They’re a painful reminder of my past
When I solely lived within them
And didn’t know life outside
A miserable life that was
Now I understand more, desire
A full and worldly life of hope,
Dreams, and a love like no other
I hold a love that compares to none
One that these walls don’t know
And can’t comprehend, it’s
Something walls just can’t get
A life of love, complete and true
That walls can only dream of

Evanescence

Dear Soap Bubble,

bright focus
in an air-light reflection
of the ephemeral beauty
of this world

diaphanous soul 
in despair

sincere
fearful
innocent
hesitating
uncertain
distrustful
pure

Emotional universum
rumbling inside the anima
of a tiny simple
passionate creature

I shall enjoy thy sight

Shall I live in fear
for you not to burst

Shall I be the wind
to blow tenderly
directing thy path

Thy shelter shall I be
I surrender myself to thee

I CAN SEE

I can see love smiling in this house
I can smell the beauty and devotion
I can sense happiness everywhere
I can feel the hand of trust holding them together.

Divinity of my love for you

I was dwelling in my sad poetry

till you brought the romanticism

trespassing my dark world...

you began to paint love

 

your soothing words

calmed the sea in my heart

my faith returned

with this golden light....[ your words]

 

I see a beautiful world

you and I 

by the river side

singing  in the valley

our songs of love

 

won't you grace me this dream

that I have build on the hill

where our children 

are playing in the field 

 

I  shall make you sleep

in my arms

pour on you 

all my love and charm !

 

my love you are my last wish !

as ur a RIVER and I am your FISH...........

 

 

To the most lovable person in this world !

Where is my secret admirer

Who has stolen my heart, a love that cannot be extinguished. My heart is desperate 
to love him and yet he does not love me, Why? He was the one who ran after me, 
and I fell for him, and now that he no longer wants me: The world should end. How 
do I go on knowing he does not belong to me, but my heart belongs to him, which 
he does not want. I no longer see spectrum of wonderful and vibrant colors of life, 
but only black and white. Life seems meaningless everything should be become 
lifeless. I feel lost in the midst of my confused emotion - I am lost in the sea of 
unbridled love for a man I do not know, and I also do not know how to be loved by 
one. How I yearn to be hugged and kissed with so much passion that would make 
me lost in his strong arms forever. When is he going to melt my heart with his, or am 
I hoping for the impossible to be love by him.

How my heart belongs to him... where are you my secret admirer. God made me 
loved him so he should love me back, please because my heart will stop beating 
because I lost his love. Please save me Jehovah God because I am sinking in the 
sea of despair by him not showing me love, so God where is my life's buoy or better 
yet my 'secret admirer.

Crabby Tabby

The way that you’re crying,
You sound like you’re dying…
You can’t get enough of that food!

And then, when I feed you,
You say, “I don’t need you!”
And you’re in another bad mood!

Stop trying to bite me!
I think that you might be…
A little too cruel and crabby!

No matter what I say, 
I’ll adore you anyway!
You’ll always be my love, Tabby!

When Angels Cry

The rain pours down wrecking the day you had planned, soaking through your firewood. Time 
and energy spent and wasted with this fall of water from the skies, looking up and imagine the 
angels cry. The rain washes and cleans away the filth and grim, but in the moment it seems to 
be only lost time; the hurt and pain that comes out with the rain, it goes on for days and seems 
it will never go away. You ever try to light a camp fire with wet wood? You keep trying for awhile 
hoping to have the wood catch and reward you with a warm fire, but after awhile you stop trying 
because you realize that not matter what you try its just not going to light. At the crossroads the 
Devil stands with a can of gasoline, waiting to make a deal. For a small price you can have the 
burst of flame you so desperately crave, in that moment you feel whole and complete with the 
warm arms of the fire reaching out to hold you tight. In time no matter how much gas you buy, 
the rain from heaven when angels cry will drown the flame; leaving you with nothing but shame 
that you sold out for a temporary flame. What is that price that is to be paid, so you can feel the 
warmth, but the gas quickly burns away leaving you standing in the crossroads with a price to 
pay. In my life I have learned it’s not the price you want to pay for the short lived flame, just 
hold on and in the new day the rain will go away.

Stump attracting me first and more than flowers

Flowers, grass, bushes, trees, attracted me in garden
In centre, a tree stump seemed to have complain 
Stump was sobbing, none was caring
Moved by tears, I moved closer to stump
Stump bit in solace, narrated nostalgia bit by bit

“ Was once gardens fame tree, grew lovers favorite flowers,
Lovers plucked flowers, friends wish came true for sure
On Valentine day, seeking wish fulfilling flower 
Lovers thronged, broke stem as they hysterically lunged, 
Lovers got flowers, their love life flowered
A child could not get flower, wept on failure
Queried, you are a child, flowers are for lovers 
Child wept louder said he too was a lover
Flower he wanted to present it to his Mother
Tears kept trickling , as if stump it was watering
Since then, every day child devotedly kept watering
Waiting for flower, be first one to pluck fresh flower
And present it to his dear Mother "

Deeply moved by childs love for stump, 
I felt ashamed for mad urge of plucking  flower
Flowers, thereafter, never plucked, left on tree to adore 
Not wanting to be sinned for depriving any child's present for mother
Now all stumps attracting me first and more than flowers

The Candide Within

“This is the best of all possible worlds I hear, and you’re the master of your life”,
But when you count the closed shut doors, and look around you for a window,
Turn a rubik’s cube around and play with empty running rivers.
Mere stupidities and bottles with clichés will smear, right across the empty floor,
Tremble stupid kid! For cold, is just your empty sensation of fear.
This life is a wondrous gift, you’ll say; a challenge for the mighty heroes.
The good Pangloss in blood and flesh could not resist his own ideas.
You run and jump on sharp and blunt spears, to catch a glimpse of certitude.
But gravity, a law of nature, will keep you still in mortar shoes.
“Men have somehow corrupted Nature”, and I corrupt myself with dreams 
But what is hope but a glorious strength, embedded in genetic attributes,
Like aids attacking healthy cells, will disappear. And let it go Candide!
You die a hundred times a year and fear, fear, fear another death, another life,
The grand pillars of values and potent righteousness, 
You dare to believe in their existence. 
It’s like the God you trust, but cannot see and cannot feel.
But do not be shaken, have no fear for this is just your own free will,
Oh Cunegonde of mine, you’re near, and every time I look you disappear!
Sometimes you search the absolutes of universe and wonder where,
Does God exist and what He’s doing when Cunegonde is flagged and raped?
Stumble on the rocky path on orators and chaste priests,
With tongue so sweet and gloried preachings,
But what they do in solitude with sharpen knifes in backs of infants?
Close your eyes oh sweet Candide, and dream away with no restraint,
And watch how all your hemispheres will tremble soaked in darks and lights.
If not your head can imagine life without a shadow or a tear,
You are corrupt Candide oh dear, but this is the best of all possible lives.
You kill even the ones you love the most, nothing is holy anymore.
Just the promise of Pangloss and the dream of Cunegonde.
Merge your coding to save a dear, stop on red, and do not litter!
For your punishment ‘s not in Hell, it is indeed the life you bare.
Pace yourself! In the New World, like a Columbus you’ll try to steer,
Your arms and legs but not your head, for it is damned for it is barren.
There is no sun, or air out here. You strive for breath in empty chores,
At least you have your Cunegonde I hear, but she is just another whore.
Who cursed her love for seven years, but plow your garden cher Candide!
For this is the best of all possible worlds.

Tell Me That You Love Me

If You Love me

Tell me that you love me
When ‘ere I pass your way
Don’t wait until my eyes are closed
And I have gone away
Tell me in the morning
When I wake to greet the day
And you kiss me gently on my cheek
As you go on your way
Tell me when things go wrong
And I am feeling blue
And when you take me in your arms
I’ll say, “I love you too”
Tell me when you’re angry
When something is amiss
Don’t let us go to bed
Without “I love you” and a kiss
Tell me that you love me
At least once every day
Don’t wait until my eyes are closed
And I have gone…away

Winter

‘Tis winter season—
a bracing weather, foggy in its warmth.
The trees are drying, as bones,
gripping water from the winter soil.
It’s resting on an earth snow:
dancing in chilliness, dazedly.
Perchance,
it’s waiting for a poignant breath
that will give him soul.
To feel, once more, from being numb.
To warm his heart;
but the serenity and the turmoil have ended.

The dream is forgotten by the prized.
The dream is freezing the lover.

When all hope is lost

when the birds have stoped

signing their sweet melody,

and the flowers lost their sweet scent,

when the grass started withering,

u were there for me.



u defied the odds and stood tall when i was down.

u were able to reach down on me

u reached my hand and pulled me up.

u believed in me even when i didnt believe.

u made me your hero.

and for that i regard as the best gift in my life.



i will rise again and be the hero in me that you have always seen.

i will stand by you forever.

naw i am a believer,

i see the dark past that was my life.

and the thought of you brings light to all of it.

now i can walk with my head held high

because i kno wat m made of

and what i have to do.



i know i have to build you and i

a little heaven on earth

where we will live a happy life that all of us always dreamt of.

we came from humble beginings

and today we stood as legends in the name of love.

we wrote the story of our love in sand

hoping that the wind will not wipe away.

but we dont know of the happenings of tomorrow,

so lets rejoice today,

wat our love has created and brought upon us.



u have not deserted me,

In my darkest hour,

i will also be here with you forever,

for i know u do not want me to go anywhere.

you showed me how it is to love,

i will return the love you gave me

and will remain true to you as u have been true to me.

you are every reason, every hope and every dream i ever had,

and no matter what happens to us in the future,

every day we are together

is the greatest day of my life.

here is where i want to spend the rest of my days,

i have became happier each day since u came into my life.

and i want to share the happyness with you.

if you will let me stay and enjoy the happyness with you.

A love for the growing seed
A leaf with a golden tentacles

Attracts all insects of pure passionate breeds

All like those true ones

Deep from them "mother Care"
All that appreciates nature's offers
For them shall be a revolving earth.

Love is Blind

People says loving you is a crime,
My eyes cried listening to this brutal rhyme,
because u r dearest to me every time,
And I died 1000 times listening sour words like lime.

Watching your eyes is like watching a heart touching accident,
because your single tear makes me restless 100 percent,
But these people doesn’t understood what I meant,
& I am sure one day they will definitely repent.

I can’t even think of leaving you,
Already cried so many times and tears r still due,
I told them love doesn’t see cast barrier & it’s a clue,
But they beat you because of our love and its true.

U came back again for me and my heart again cried,
Watching your scars u don’t know haw many times I died,
just to be with u several times I lied,
so now how to live with u someone has to guide.

Is it my fault that you are a monkey,
Cant I love a creature even if it is a donkey,
I just love u cause you are more  pranky.	

When u dance from one branch to another,
I open my arms as a player open for a ball to gather,
Cant we enjoy the life being together,
But these people say please don’t be with monkey forever.

In the end They say you might jump & disappear soon,
How will they climb trees because its like reaching the moon,
They said better love a donkey because he can be found in noon,
At one more thought they said better love a famous cartoon.

Remains of the papaya tree!

You chew your papaya like you chew her head.
Callous and savagely,
You take out each seed, like you did of hers.
Each seed she sowed in you, you spit out from your soul.
You think you can slice away from her life, give her a piece and let her go.
Aah but what do you know?

She has already killed the biggest seed sown by you.
In her womb lies the remains that you spewed!
The remains of the Papaya tree you grew...

how deep is love VIXEN

This feeling buried under my skin when love hits me makes me itch like a fein for 
dope I dont know how to explain the things that love will have you doing 
somethings become to deep so I ask my self how deep is love some times it can 
have you on a cloud like your floating so easy to bring you down like walls in a 
building being demolished so what can love bring you in this world but pain mistrust 
jealousy and hate but they say love is like chocolate sweet rich good satisfying or 
could it be me as I watch those in love hold hands dancing to the tunes that loving 
someone brings their soul are satisfied their smiles reveal love their laughs reveal 
lust so I again ask myself is it me maybe those who have tried to love me I have 
broken them to the point that love didnt matter anymore am I that blind that I cant 
see love in front of me tyrone said loving me was harder than predicting the 
weather laughing as I dug deeper into his soul eating his love feeding my lust with 
his feelings so how deep is love deeper then I have been digging detroying lives as 
I moved on to the next playing as I loved to love those who were loving me they 
were blind to see the vixen as she came to seek and detroy love so how deep is 
love I use to believe love was a gift but to love does not mean love I AM the VIXEN 
OF LOVE I AM the VIXEN OF LUST I love to lust AND LUST LOVES TO LOVE ME WE ARE 
ONE thats how deep my love goes

IF I COULD TOUCH THE HELM OF HER GARMENT

My darling sat so sweetly like a contented woman
her crown was knitted with topaz and pure glistering gold
her succulent soft skin brought mad thoughts to his knees
her face was more glistering than the night stars
her lovable lofty hips eclipsed the sun!
her dear dear tongue was wetter than the fishes of the ocean
her eyebrows were more ravishing than the early morning sun
her kiss being smoother than early morning delicacies
her laps will sink the holiest of men into the quicksands of passion
her seat radiates even more of her beauty


she stood up with full blown beauty from her seat
swaying and shaking her hips from side to side
mesmerized by her ambience, my emotion dissolved like a candle wax
and I forgot how to breath
She looked at me carefully and smiled
I then dashed towards her like a resourceful idiot controlled by emotion
but she meandered and walked away
I sat helplessly crying like an orphaned infant bird
why should i lose one of the most beautiful things on earth?
if she would not allow me to hold her,
then let her allow me to touch the helm of her garment
for this alone could give me all I wanted

Who is this darling of mine?
She is peace! absolute peace!! total peace!!!
that gives one joy and keeps one from trouble, sorrow and tears!

my Royaume

I've never thought that i would feel this way,
But it finally happened somehow someday;
And i drowned in the deep oceans that looked at me.
I got dazzled by this smile everytime i see
These petals opening softly revealing wonderful pearls;
And everytime this breeze fonndles my skin, my heart twirls.
How i wish to stay forever in this acropolis of passion!
How i admire those two loyal guards fulfilling their mission!
Look at the heavens sparkling in those skies
Making it hell when it comes to goodbyes...
But some dreams are meant to never come true,
Like the one of falling asleep next to you
Because, as they say, the moon is not allowed to rise on the majestic wooden cross
But what a shame of this culture and what a terrible loss...
I had to accept to fall back on earth
A place where cruelty took birth!
Even though they broke my wings, i'll climb as high as i can get
To try and find the heavens that i would never forget.

A Broken Heart

My heart still love him, my oppressor. Is it because of self-preservation why I love 
him? Or Is it because I truly love him? I believe the latter is so, because I do not love 
him of my own accord - God made me love him... the unlovable. But he does not love 
me, even though, he ran after me. Why all that effort? I do not know. All I know he 
is no longer chasing me; therefore, he stop loving me. Hence, my heart is broken.

Take My Hand Lord




Take my hand Lord,
See me through this trial
Lead me through the darkness
Stay with me awhile
Lift my spirits, relieve my pain
Remind me of your love again

I will not fear the darkness
With you at my side
I long to be at home with you
Where love and peace abide
In spite of pain, I love you still
Give me the courage to bow to your will

Comfort my family for they will grieve
And be filled with sadness when I leave
Show them they have nothing to fear
For I will always be very near
Come… hold my hand Lord
Take this journey with me
To stay with you for eternity

As you sleep on the couch
I listen to you breathing, slow
even, steady.  Last night
you called me a jealous lover
and I laughed and denied
knowing you in such a way
that would make it so.

Ah, but here it is.  I am 
a fiery dragon, standing
guard as you sleep,
knowing you did speak
the truth.  I remember taking
you twenty years ago, locking
you away in my lair.  I spit

fire at anyone who dared approach.
Look at all the burned bodies, 
the skeletons and bones.

Look at you, covered with scars.

You have captured my heart with your love, with your promises, with your deeds. I 
have surrendered to charm and embalm in your principles. You have made me glow

gone in a cloud of shattered dreams,
past loves turn into hatred,
useless inteligence,
these are things that are a result of our so called,
life,
however,
in the dark clouds of our minds a solum strand of light,
happyness,
blooms forth changing your perspective,
evan for just a moment
the birth of children,
newfound freindships,
True love,
things you may life without,
but you have always wished to have,
created in them,
for with all darkness there must be light and in all joy,

I wanna state a cardiac arrest for ya chest
Detest your own humidity within humanity, cats rest in vanity
Controlling underground charisma the mic got me checking
Wrecking one image of fame at a time
Cursed vines connecting family to 10 o clock news
Dues payed, lives strayed in the fray battling demonic entities
Loving life as it was given to me never forgetting how bad days are now
Whatever happened to old love music and jazzy tunes programed to everyone's ear
Fears hold hearts by the numbers count beyond two plus two into thunder
Anesthetic agility slaying demographic amendment abilities
Beckoning nucleic AC's, base combination weeds
Growing fast forget what you knew last 
Before trash wonders pounce into eyes of ghetto stricken children
Stereotyped to end up living in hatreds domain, so much pain
Vividly orchestrated symbolically government debated
No-one has awakened accept a lesser few
Scripted by transcendentalist dues, golden hues and cyripted clues
BOOM!, did you feel my vibe
Arise and cry your hearts content, repent what grounds gravitational
Ration cuz they called me action with a little bit of attraction
For tainted pictures posted on shopping center windows
JC penny pillows, couches and Nintendos
Forget all the unnecessary smiles and hug with love's style
Is it wrong to file times when wrong was right
Darkness was light, she became vigilante bright
Yo...this poetry thing is so tight
I just wish i found it earlier in mainstream ignorance
To electrify my repentance mechanism
Schisms tattooed onto tribal ancestor blades
vector shijin played
Yuki im comin girl 
Your my world and much more, although I love Viviana 
until my heart dies of pore romanticism interpretations 
Pounding silhouettes emancipation anticipate that
See i'm just one of a few that appreciate metaphores
and naturalistic lore, women with imaginative cores
Naw it aint hard, see im just cruzin
but i guess its hard to contemplate daily iluzions.

The Sol's Efflorescence

There lays a dream amidst the green green grass
The sweetest dream unfurled,
T'was then that love would bloom with growth
Inside that dreamlike world.

The prickly grass that touched my stem
The sun which warms my soul,
Took everything I offered it
My heart it came and stole.

Whenever sunshine shined on me
I was happy and so free,
My petals danced and pollen flew
Beneath the redwood tree.

When it was sad it rained all day
My roots felt all its tears,
A flood; A puddle; drenched me deep
My petals torn, severe.

My leaves were drooped; my stem so weak
But sunshine came to aide,
It shined on me to pick me up
Said I must not be afraid.

Now when the skies are gray with glum
I bask in all its hurt,
I stretch my roots down in the ground
Planting myself in dirt.

Oh sunshine please don't go away
Illuminate my growth,
Beneath this redwood tree Ill stay with you
To you I make this oath...

Loving you

My heart yearns to recapture what I have once had, a love that was once fresh and 
grand for a man who I could not see but sense. An everlasting hunger for him only 
he could satisfy, but he did not. All we had was a telepathic connection, a 
connection that almost drove me mad. However, he rejected me ; thus, my head and 
heart forgotten him, therefore, he no longer exist; consequently, rescuing me. Now, 
he is back and wants me. I do not surrender nor do I resist my love and passion for 
him. My love is stewing like molten lavas waiting to erupt. Only a matter of time, my 
love would abundantly overflows, thus surrendering , once again, my heart and 
head to him.

LIFE

Life is an everyday struggle, a struggle that never ends where people die and children cry 
and you learn to just pretend. Pretend that you are happy. Pretend that everything is ok. 
Pretend that this crap is normal, when you know its not suppose to be this way. They said 
God only gives you what you can handle, well I wish he dint trust me so much. Cause eve 
been strong for way too long and at this point rim about to bust. Over 10 years i was held 
captive in that belly of the beast but that has no comparison to the pain eve endured on 
those streets. My precious family dying off 1 by 1, so tragic, so painful i just want to run. I 
cant run to my mom God took her to heaven too, since she has been gone i just dolt know 
what to do. A piece of me died with her, rim no longer whole...i loved my mom with all my 
heart and soul. She wasn't the perfect mother but shes all i knew, mommy if you can hear 
me, I love you.Tell Aunt Lisa i love her and im sorry she left this world in so much pain since 
shes been gone no one is the same. She didn't deserve to be taken out in that horrific way 
but dont worry they are all gonna pay. Life doesn't get any easier, its an everyday struggle, 
it never ends...Where people die and children cry and you learn to just pretend.

Carpe Diem

Dropped to my knees
I’d fled their cell
of murmured spite
Among the trees
Emotions fell
From dizzying hights

The soft wind kissed
Tears off of my cheeks
Made puppets of leaves
On stages of mist
And cloudy peaks
I stole back my heart  from thieves

To you wide windy world
My heart belongs
None could my skin so gently trace
Nor sing such sweet songs,
As you, and you so softly me enfurled
Yet where are you for my embrace?

stronger

Stronger
Been through stress
Been through it all
I’m heading a place where my life is on the line
We try to survive this life, but I’m stronger than I thought I was
We said we would not make it but we did
We said we would die holding hands, but we died facing each other
Your last breathe made me stronger, and I felt the air from the earth.
Yesterday we held hands, tonight will hold you even tighter
I will be true I will miss you when you’re gone
I will cry I will let the world know how much I miss you
My heart will never care to love again you made me happy
How will I survive without you?
How will I live without you by my side
I will awake tomorrow and your face will be fading from my eyes
I promise I will be true, will you be true to me?
I love you, I need you and I miss you.

In Moments like These

I need
Assaurance from my Maker
A hug from a friend
A smile from a stranger
A hello from a colloguea 
A kiss from my husband
And a thank you from my child.

Oh how I miss my child:
The sweet memories of a love that can never be
The heartache that will never pass 
The miracle we except to let go.

                I need
A prayer from my e-mail buddy
A “I love you mom” from my child
A miracle from up above
A word of advice from my mother
A helping hand from a stranger 
And a silent acknowledgement of my father. 

Oh how I miss my father:
The loving vioce and smile that use to touch my heart
The joy he brought with his appearances and the tears with his departure
The vivid memories of a longing so deep and a missing so painful it hurts.

             I need
A buddle of flowers
A teaspoon of happiness
A pot of love
A oceaan of courage
And a miracle to  understand

Love me why

You must love me ? love me, why? as how cruel is my heart,
                 how cruel has my quest for love come to this end...
how cruel that I found my true love only to find his heart numb to my own.

And now why carry on this life knowing this to be true!
I searched forever to find that my true love really exists but how evil is this..

As my quest has taken the women out of me and replaced my being with a harsher me.
That woman I was so long ago still lives within me she just had to go!
And now I stand here before his heaven with no way of entering the future with my true 
kindred soul,

Instead I shall end up in hell with so much woe as he will never love me it is my end I 
know and that's my own sentence forever to be in graved in my heart.
That my quest to find him took me further away from his heart.

Can I change into a bird and fly away tonight unheard?
Can I sink into the ocean and become lost forever in the darkest seas?

It is never to be for some one like me , to hold his hand in mine that fits into my fingers 
in twined,
No babies shall I ever hear cry as that too has been taken from me.

And now my quest to find true love is over, my tears, my broken heart, my fears are not 
finished that is for sure,
As now I have to watch him slowly disappear forever.. into his life,
I shall cry his name into the dark night until my voice has no sound, 
As my quest to find his heart has torn me apart and now that I am so damaged and so 
filled with past hurts..

The path that I took left me this way and now my heart will never be filled by another,
As I found him too late that's my life lesson, that instead of just settling with all the 
wrong hearts and trying to make it  become what it could never be. 

Take me now and let my life in this time be forgotten,as the next life time I shall save all 
the mistakes and stupid heartaches and keep on my quest to find him before any one 
can stop me trick me into false fate.

My end is to never be with the love I have finally found but to spend the next years 
being held by the emptiness of knowing my love is alive but in his eyes I am the walking 
dead..



I wish him love, I wish him peace, I wish i had never found him at all, as the search kept 
me hopeful now I am filled with rage and despair ...... 

If I take my life will it bring me back to the start or will i live forever in this dark black 
cold space as the evil underneath is hell that is for me .. but can it be any more painful 
than my own hell I live in today and now forever more.

How do I capture the man of my dreams

How do I capture the man of man of my dreams. When I see him and he delights 
me, I will talk to him. If he make my heart please. I will club him over the head and 
rendering him half dead. Thus, I will take him in my bed and when he awoke, he will 
not protest because he will be too week to leave; consequently, surrender is right 
to wed me by a minister and a witness to prove our joint being. And when, he is fully 
aware, he won't resist. He will leave to get his belongings and move in with me; in 
this way, we become one - the man of dreams and me.

Wish of a rapist's unborn son

Do not weep through 
Your broken dreams 
Promise me not to end 
Before I am born 
I love the warmth 
In this cozy womb 
I feel your sigh 
As a thunder storm 
I hear the  beat of 
your sinless  heart 
as a fast nonstop train 
I struggle to learn it 
Whether LOVE or HATE 
Gather your humanity 
to forgive a wild man 
Give me to the world 
Where there is morality 
Hand me to stand 
as a tamed man 
Let me you to promise 
Not to be a son whose 
father lives within him 
Though I am not a fruit of LOVE 
Please, do not hate me MOM 
What I have not done!

My Wall

I’ve built a wall around my heart
A wall created with care -
A wall of brick and mortar
I built it with many tears.

The brick is mistrust,
The mortar is pain.
I’ve been broken and wounded,
I won’t love again.

How much can one heart take?
How many tears can be shed?
I built the wall to shield me
From the sorrow that I’ve had.

My life is fine.....or is it?
Sometimes I’m not too sure,
But my wall stands firm.
I’m safe inside, of this I am assured.

I only let God inside my wall,
With Him there is pure trust.
He loves me the way I am,
And to live for Him I must.

Maybe someday…I’ll let another in,
I can’t imagine why.
Maybe there is someone….
Whose love I can’t deny.

They say great love
Involves great risk.
Can I take that chance?
Can I let someone in my heart again,
And give them my last dance?

Mother Star

I am aimed and directed for a shooting star.
In the midst of a collision I am traveling far.
 
Nothing can stop me for I am on a lifelong mission.
I’m timing the clocks and gaining some recognition.
 
I am in and out of reality stumbling onto a delusion.
Sometimes I want to run free and go into seclusion.
 
The wind tries to hinder me so I shew it to go away.
I stand on the Moon and make the Sun arise a new day.
 
I am looking down at a world that is misunderstood.
If I could have I would have and then again I should.
 
But that is neither here nor there so I will fair.
I have accumulated a bit and have much to share.
 
However, there is a cornerstone one can get stuck.
One must find the mother Star and hope for lady luck.
 
Once you find it you will be well on your way,
You’ll rise with the Sun and be brighter each day.

things

sun and rain 
pleasure and pain
war and peace
love and the brain
the act of love
is a curious thing
it starts in the heart
with the eyes that sing
there is an exchange
between the two
a time set aside
for me and you
sipping tea adding glue
then the stories
and secrets are told
"what are you now
that your this many
years old?"
calling on the phone
going places together
giving each other hugs
writing sweet letters
then
that one thing happens
that turns things around
a hint of jealousy
makes a little sound
thoughts are suspicions
and eyes magnify
we hate competitions
and ask ourselves why
what we thought 
was beautiful
was a doorway to hell
we should never
make heaven
in this world
sages tell
should we love in earnest
until they break our hearts
with each and every
new love
with the end
is how to start

is it a waking dream?
no,
is it a waking nightmare?
no,
it be the thoughts of the deserted,
those who have nothing left to lose,
the ones who can go mute without a second thought,
the ones whose dreams overflow with the blood of others,
for they are the ones who see the sinister truth,
the end isn't near its always been there,
every year,
every month,
every day,
every minute,
every second,
for you see the end is not when the world ends,
it is the last day you feel complete,
it is the day you feel worthless,
the day you see only the dark side of things,
the moment you imagine slaying the beast of which caused your pain,
for that is the day the innocence known as your "inner child" is finally slaughtered,
and when your become...,
heartless.

Discarded

Who am I? I ask myself. Am I good enough to love or am I good enough to be 
loved? Am I capable of finding the man of my dreams,who would love me 
unconditionally - A love that will last until death do us part. How do I go on this 
minute; the next hour, the next day, the next year, and even the next decade. Who 
would want me, the discarded to marry. All I am is the rejected; used tissue, that no 
one wants. I know I deserve better. How can I see pass exploitation- to be used 
and then to be tossed away. I am God's child who deserve to love and to be love 
unconditionally by the man of my dreams. But first, I am me and deserve to 
celebrate because I exist, and I am good person. I deserve to live without control, 
oppression, sexual exploitation. I will always honor and celebrate my life even if no 
one wants me, the discarded.

An Undying Rose

A rose buds-
Reaches its arms
Out into the world.
They are felt,
They are given,
They are sold, 
They are picked, 
And they describe love.
It grows as petals do,
Fair, lovely, and bright,
Then wilt, but are not done...
They cry petals-
As they fall, 
The rose will recieve 
Special care 
Or be thrown.
The love that they had 
Is cherished
In a sweet scented potpourri,
To be kept forever.
I love you in this way.

The Love of My Dad

The Love of My Dad



When I was a child, you combed my hair for school

I never played hooky, because that was your rule

You helped with my homework

Math was a trial

But you stuck with me, because I am your child

You never gave up, no matter how long it took

You taught me to clean, and also to cook

You’re my dad and I am so proud

I love you, and I say it out loud

Because you have captured my heart; therefore, I have relinquished my freedom to

IF I COULD TOUCH THE HELM OF HER GARMENT

My darling sat so sweetly like a contented woman
her crown was knitted with topaz and pure glistering gold
her succulent soft skin brought mad thoughts to his knees
her face was more glistering than the night stars
her lovable lofty hips eclipsed the sun!
her dear dear tongue was wetter than the fishes of the ocean
her eyebrows were more ravishing than the early morning sun
her kiss being smoother than early morning delicacies
her laps will sink the holiest of men into the quicksands of passion
her seat radiates even more of her beauty


she stood up with full blown beauty from her seat
swaying and shaking her hips from side to side
mesmerized by her ambience, my emotion dissolved like a candle wax
and I forgot how to breath
She looked at me carefully and smiled
I then dashed towards her like a resourceful idiot controlled by emotion
but she meandered and walked away
I sat helplessly crying like an orphaned infant bird
why should i lose one of the most beautiful things on earth?
if she would not allow me to hold her,
then let her allow me to touch the helm of her garment
for this alone could give me all I wanted

Who is this darling of mine?
She is peace! absolute peace!! total peace!!!
that gives one joy and keeps one from trouble, sorrow and tears!

Sold

Our eyes met, from across the road,
I felt you love me as I would you.
Inside me, you made me yours,
the emptiness filled with something new.
I brought you comfort, kept you safely,
while my world was lit by your hand.
You explored me, knew all my secrets,
every part of me you would understand.
Then you left me, without warning
letting cold and darkness in.
I met with strangers, who didn’t love me,
or adore me, as you once did.
Now a shambles, I’m barely standing
You took all I had to give.
Without you here I am nothing,
but the condemned house where you once lived.

My Grass in the Desert

The midnight magic sprinkles in the air.
I can hear the every breath that you take.
Closing my eyes I am so lost to any existence.
This moment is mine that I create.
So very, very much I am content!
My soul is engaged with such a paradise. 
I am aimlessly there.

Ah yes! Yes indeed, 
You are my grass in the desert and I am so very, very near.
The glitter is everywhere, 
I can breathe the every breath that you take.
Closing my eyes I am so lost for time.
This moment is mine that I make.
So very, very much I am entwined.
My soul is entangled with magic so sublime, 
I am without a single care.
Yes, yes, yes! 

You are my grass in the desert and I do often come there.
The radiance I stand and bear.
I can touch the every breath that you take.
Closing my eyes I am so lost without a cause.
This moment is mine that I partake.
So very, very much I am lost.
My soul is entangled in this web of mine, 
I am so very, very much there.

I am lost in time.
Ah yes, yes, yes indeed!
You are my grass in the desert and I am here to share.
Blossoms are blooming everywhere planting the harvested seeds.
My grass in the desert is all that I will ever need, even when so desolately bare!

My Little Bluebird

As the sun shines so bright
   The warmth of thy everlasting light
Will shine on you until the dark of night.

Oh, so beautiful,
   Yet fragile,
And so breakable.

Find the one that lasts forever
   For it is the one, that is,
Ultimately intrinsic in value
   And childhood memory,
So that you will remember....

This special gift now becomes
   The element that fills that empty space,
That signifies a precious moment in time.

The bond between mother and daughter
   Will grow even more
As they have grown together,
   Through the love and care,
Support and compassion,
   That has blossomed from day one
And will strengthen forever more !

Completion

It used to be that when I closed my eyes
Dandelion wishes of youth would tickle my mind.
Wishes of forever that I never truly grasped....
A dream of true love I never honestly trusted....
A completion of self I never truly felt:
~ Until you.

And now when I close my eyes, it’s you that I see...
(My dream realized)
And my senses reel from the heat of your touch
That lingers still - even after you’ve gone....
Instinctively I breathe you in (longingly) 
Wanting to taste you:
Savoring the memory of your caress on my lips
Teasing my need for more:
Fanning the flame of desire that never fades.

And I smell you (forever found in your scent)....
And I feel you (true love found in your embrace)....
And I hear the whisper of your voice 
~ My axis that guides me home.

And in my craving to touch you one more time
I am completed by the sensation of your kiss
~ Pouring life into my soul.

A MOTHER’S DAY WISH
A mother’s heart is like a pot of gold
They keep us warm whenever we get cold

They brought us here to give us love and affection
They felt a lot of pain whenever they felt a contraction

No matter what we do they are the one that loves us the most
When we are sad they are the ones to hold us close

We children should love them in or out of sight
Mother‘s should be love and cherish every moment of their life

Once love has no cost
once peace and  love

Link

Traveling through the galaxies of many and more,
I come up under a Star I have never seen before.
 
It had light brighter than anything I’ve ever seen.
It was intelligent and wise and incredibly keen.
 
It could talk it could dance and it could even sing.
It had made all of the worlds and gave them a king.
 
It had made the Sun and the Moon just for me.
It made me the link for the whole world to see.
 
I was to link each kingdom according to orders.
Each one had four corners and then four borders.
 
So I went around the galaxies linking what I could.
Many had burned out Stars that just never would.
 
I saw where there were no towns or cities at all.
I seen all of the planets made great and small.
 
There was a missing link to the universe I saw.
I found myself linking it all up standing in awe.

Vinegar Part Two

a love for your fellow human being, simply show compassion for your brother,
this is what the world needs; to be working towards an understanding of one another
but we're too busy fighting, much like the squid and the whale, til death, entwined
their way of life, the tentacles, both are binding, is that what you want? a life so confined?
don't follow their lead, don't live with their hate,  it's control of your thoughts they seek
I ask you to resemble the sea; I beg you, be gracious, I plead, you must never be meek.
let this be the salt in your water, salinity is serenity, into every inch of you, let it spread
 I ask you to keep a promise, I request of you, please, make these words your daily bread 
We'll right the wrongs, clear our hearts of the taint, the weight of hate, we'll make amends
we'll stick together, we'll have our ups, our downs, but together we'll weather the bends
a life less virulent, a cure for your jellyfish sting, the vinegar, these words, a gift I give to you
these words, they will remedy us all, these are the truths, the truths that I pursue;

face your life with an open mind and face it with a love that's barrier transcending
face you life with open arms and face your life with a kindness that's unbending
face your life with an open heart and face it with a happiness that's never-ending
for the tide has come, to wash this all away, and it's time to start defending

HE PAID MY DEBT

AND VALUE THE LIFE OF HUMANITY 

EVEN WITH ALL THE TEARS MY GOD HAD TAKEN THE HUMILITY

WITH ALL ME SINNING EVEN TO SPAT ON HIS FACE 

BUT YET HE OPEN IS ARM AN STILL EARN FOR MY EMBRACE

HE PAID MY DEBT THROUGH HIS AMAZING GRACE

OH LORD I CRIED AND REPENT IT IS YOURS I PLEA 

YOUR MERCY I SEE IS ALL FROM THEE

YOUR EVERLASTING BREATH YOU BREATH IN ME

Dear June

Dear June,

Arrived when the sun touched
The dew in the sky
And left in June

Life has a course
The path is numbered
But don’t make a left at June

You just can’t
You just can’t fight with June

January brings a chill
That February deepens with each day
March to the beat of your heart
While April brought few showers
May-be that was love
But June was met with open fire

Tried retracing steps 
Instead blinded by the shadows of darkness

Dear June,
I gave all that was me
Still to no avail
This must be something like hell
But I shall no longer dwell
Because you….

Dear June,
Have compelled be to rewind the end

Dear June,
Your face is clear 
and
Your place has been written 
Dear June.

Stars From Heaven

Stars from heaven,


When we were all small...

In the sand box we used to play,

Gather our little toys,
To bask in the land of make believe !
Oft' I would stand at the edge of the lonely street..,
Pause, for the moment to try to compose your thoughts,


As I slowly yet gently approached the plate,
Next to summon my cue in which to proceed,
The voice inside me continued..,
One moment people to lend me an ear,


Please have a seat to take off your mask !

Don't try to hide behind an empty screen..,
Instead try to play the fiddle on your one last string !
A bright flare of hope...
Let's all look at the stars from heaven..,

I just can't help but to come up with some sense of identity ?

The tender moments of love between a girl and boy...
Look at how high the Eagle dot soar !
Flying high for all the world to see !
A promise that was made in the dark hath now come into the light...,

Now look at the clock to watch the grand tick tock !

Suddenly, the stars from heaven had fallen from the sky,
My one final plea,

Try to love one another as the time passes you by !

Faded Love

Once we were strong like the tall oak tree
As bright as the sun on a hot summer's day
Passion so strong you would stop and be still
Beauty as deep as the red, red rose
But now like the branch of the old oak our love has fallen
Just as the sun that  fades into the deep, deep darkness so does our love
As we move quickly in the hustle and bustle of the day
We forget to be still and so then our love is forgotten
Just as the beauty of the rose faded so did our love
And so it seems this is a story of faded love

The Velvet Chair

Many have felt,
my soft velvet skin,
from the common to royal,
my service I lend.

Sometimes for hours,
they sit, and think,
as they rock, and rest,
and their sleepy eyes blink.

Once I was lonely,
no one called on me,
they said I was to pretty,
with my hand carved feet.

Up in a room,
I was cold, and alone,
till my mother fell apart,
her rocking days gone.

Years have passed,
and I am still here,
I have comforted many,
and caught their tears.

Although I have noticed,
a little squeak now, and then,
I'm still rocking strong,
and my service I lend.

A flow in my heart

I can say so many things that can make you happy and so many things that can 
make you sad.

But one thing that is for sure is how I feel for you I have just acknowledged 
everything about you.

I don't want this to end I want to be more than just your friend I want to feel you 
and share all that life has to offer.

Seeing you is more than a treasure but a reward in the making something that I 
cannot take for granted.

Something that I must cherish and embrace I hope that is with you.

I cannot say how much I feel for you and want you I wish that I can share more 
with you.

I wish it wasn't so hard for me to open my heart to you I wish that the feelings 
were so close.

I want to love you and embrace you so much but you are so precious that I can't 
imagine damaging something that is so good.

I cannot even imagine wasting it on junk I hope and pray that one day we can be 
together and I will not be afraid.

No fear and no pain in me a love that is so real and uncondititonal I know that I am 
not perfect.

I know that I am not a saint but please allow me to be the best that I can be

Sounds and Sights of Genuine LoveI

Love calls!

And the mind sees 
And the ears hear
And the spirit rejoices in the love:  
intense.  initimate. real.
And two people share as their 
hearts smile and leap with full 
excitement over the 
 melodious rhythm of the sound of 
loving words spoken between them
As they feel their hearts pulsate and 
love flows within-
Overwhelming the very essence of 
life's existence
Initiating deep desire for total 
commitment
Embracing love to its fullest.

With each passing day, the hearts 
yearn and rejoice
As love grows and matures far 
beyond the physical, the natural
To a plain where streams of hope 
abide, strong.  satisfying.  fulfilling-
Giving new meaning to life--its 
fullness and blessing.

A love like no other
Making all past encounters seem 
like only a fantasy--an unpleasant 
dream, so 
unreal.

Ecstatic! now love is amazing
An unexpected but welcomed reality 
of truth
Leaving reservations, casting them 
aside to experience
Genuine love in another dimension 
than the past-
Binding the two in a much wanted, 
needed, and ordained relationship.
    Divine Destiny!
Love not destroyed by negatives but 
made stronger.
Love unquenchable, birthing 
lifetime commitment.

I Will Never Love Again

I will never love again and give my heart away 
As I have done with you my love 
Though now you've gone away. 
I will never love another as I have worshipped you 
And worked and prayed for your success 
In all you tried to do. 
I will never love again 
And let my poor heart bleed 
For even though God called you home
You're all I'll ever need.

love.

Why does love exist.
why does it hurt?
why does it die?
everyday i ask myself if love is worth it.
& in some sick way it is.
Love is painful, hurtful,even scary at times.
& yet when your in love you think your unstoppable.
i don't understand it.
iv only seen true love once.
it was magical undescribable.

i read about love in fairytales.
but not once have i felt it have i witnessed its hurting pain.
eversince i was a girl.
love has scared me.
a broken heart could be deadly.
a breakup could be critical.
& yet people risk everything for love.

Us

What would you rather me do

Question everything or to be a blank canvas?

I am trying to balance between the two

 

Want to figure out why I’m like this when these emotions are new

I know either answer after a while could end up with me losing you

Sad to say being without you could heal my mind but yet, where would that leave my heart?

You tell me ‘Being positive is a start’

 

I wanted to stop there but now I’m stepping back

And you are right, I am being negative and where is the trust?

Maybe it is our different worlds as there is so much I don’t understand

Want to be stubborn and show no emotion to get back at you

Wait...

I know that is not fair and of course all this is not fair on us.

 

You want me to be confident I can do so

I am the best thing that can happen to you

I’ll comfort you when times are hard

I’ll turn your giggle into a screaming laugh

And the physical act of love?  Well I know when you know enough is enough

 

I need you to see my true self

Tell me you know me, for me to take my obstacle down

To make you proud, to turn my frown upside down

To truly know you are committed, to feel safe and sound

I think by now you can tell, I would like this to be true love

I Found Love

I found Love


As you put your arms around me and tell me not to let.
I can't break free cause I want this,
Tired of feeling lonely
tired of waiting until i fall under the
 ground.No matter what 
anyone says as long as I say it fine 
everything and everyone
has no word.I found love, this isn't like before 
this is where my 
wounds that I've licked and cover only to 
have them opened again.
I will always fear,i will hide this emotion until i 
know I'm going to fall
but for now i have this love this love that no one gave me 
can you see me dancing in the rain of the moonlight and 
your arms around me 
saying that you love me I do.I'll leave in fear of being hurt 
but i will pass this life and the next with the wills of my
 past life and the future of the next.

Love Thou Past

Sitting on here ye porch
Reflecting on what were thee past
A terrible and horrifying future was in thou forecast
Thou hast laid a future in which we live
Thou peers say revenge is in progress
But we must see and love thou past and forgive

Blood dripping from thou ancestor’s hand
As thee work hard picking thou cotton from the land
Knees scrapped from thee hard planked board
But ye fellers still looked up in search of thou lord
Cuts and bruises on thee skin
As thou masters sits back with a grin

Don fears the curling whip
When thou master says take off them clothes boy and strip
Don females terrified by their masters lip
Once they art called in thou bedroom and asked to unzip
Hence thee hearts and souls were bruised and weary
Thou still hast to look their children in thee eyes all teary

When thou weren’t punished or art work
They would get out that string and begin to jerk
Jerking that string back and forth thee go
Thee voices of music starts to travel as the wind blow 
The ancestors started to sing and thee music just flow
Blues hast then been created and since only grows 

Ye hast been upset for years to come
But we must not forget where we are from
Our ancestors hast made it out alive
And one word we must have in us is “drive”
Drive no matter how hard the road gets
Drive no matter what them fellers say
Ye days may be filled with darkness in more then one way
But last time I checked thou sun rises each and every day

Got lots to live for yes we do
Thou ancestors shown us we can make it through
Through thou past we gain knowledge which only grew
We can no longer be called an animal that lives in the zoo
Our revenge is ever so sweet
Because through art intellect and skills is something that cant be beat
So when thou enemy call ye out of thou name stand fast
But to all ye brothers and sisters thou must love our past

IF I COULD TOUCH THE HELM OF HER GARMENT

My darling sat so sweetly like a contented woman
her crown was knitted with topaz and pure glistering gold
her succulent soft skin brought mad thoughts to his knees
her face was more glistering than the night stars
her lovable lofty hips eclipsed the sun!
her dear dear tongue was wetter than the fishes of the ocean
her eyebrows were more ravishing than the early morning sun
her kiss being smoother than early morning delicacies
her laps will sink the holiest of men into the quicksands of passion
her seat radiates even more of her beauty


she stood up with full blown beauty from her seat
swaying and shaking her hips from side to side
mesmerized by her ambience, my emotion dissolved like a candle wax
and I forgot how to breath
She looked at me carefully and smiled
I then dashed towards her like a resourceful idiot controlled by emotion
but she meandered and walked away
I sat helplessly crying like an orphaned infant bird
why should i lose one of the most beautiful things on earth?
if she would not allow me to hold her,
then let her allow me to touch the helm of her garment
for this alone could give me all I wanted

Who is this darling of mine?
She is peace! absolute peace!! total peace!!!
that gives one joy and keeps one from trouble, sorrow and tears!

you and you'll rest in his arms.
You are my mother who I dearly love,you are my friend and alway's have been.

when so far away i cannot show you.
I wish i could give you all you deserve,
the moon the stars, and all you dreams,
take away all the pain,the nightmares,and screams.
This reality is all to real,

An ear to listen,an eye to see,a hug and a home ,
A mother in all.

we didn't have much ,and sometimes very por,
you gave up alot,even the men that raped us.
We our family,barely alive,barely escaped.
Nobody knows of the horror we've endured or seen,
what we've lived,how cruel,how mean.
But we were strong,we made it through it all,
we have survived one and for all.
now your time is coming to rest,
So follow God,He offers his best,
A kingdom full of no pain or hate,
but of much love and joy.
something you so rarely had,
you will soon have.
So take it and be glad,
rejoice and be glad,
You will be in Heaven!
I love you mom!

You’re a devil in disguise
Yeah, your cruelty I despise
That fur coat is just your guise
I can see it in your eyes

With a snobby little hiss
You will snub away my kiss
Like a shadowy abyss
You will steal away my bliss

I can feel your icy glare
In the shadows as you stare
Reach to pet you, I don’t dare
For your patience is so rare

But tomorrow’s a new day
Maybe it’ll be okay
My bad luck will go astray
And together we will play

Luna's Love...

Beautiful Luna in her palace on the Moon,
Staring down from the heights above;
The night was hot in the middle of June,
And that’s the night she fell in love;

And Goddess though she may be,
She lost her heart to a man;
A story that was once passed down to me,
The story of the Love of Diana;

The only night that she could leave,
And on her Silver Chariot fly down to Earth;
And with her love spend the Eve,
On the Blue Moon, the night of her birth;

At dawn she returns to the Moon,
To her palace up in the heavens above;
Hoping that she can see him soon,
Luna and her Human Love.

I am who I am

The past made me who I am today
I hope you like it that way
I would never cheat on you
Or hate anything you do
I may be annoying at times
But I tell no lies
I have my ups and downs
Sometimes I act like a clown
Sometimes I just want to be alone
Just drive and shut off my phone
I may be upset some days
The past made me this way
Ever since I met you
I love everything you do
I wake up with a smile
Your number 1 on the speed dial
I can come to you for anything
And talk to you about everything
You helped me fight my past
My love for you will always last
I smile when I hear your voice
With me you have a choice
You know I will never push you around
That’s just not where love is found
Every time I look into your eyes
My feelings for you I just can’t hide
You don’t have to buy me stuff
My love for you is tough
I am happy just to hold you when I can
I am your number one fan
I talk about you day and night
I always smile when I say your name

You've been my mysterious companion-

You breathed some of the smoke for me-
so much that your gown is grey
Pain and strife you've taken from me-
stealing to win this game we play.

I wish I could match your prowess-
as you captures many a soul
Not even wanting to cheat when you do-
but its better you are lost in me than I'm lost from you

Sway away today I may-

Loving you-

For this is what you mean to me
Sweet poetry my lover my friend
What you mean to me

HOLDING ON

So the flower is trying to keep on growing,
In a room that is cold and gray.
She tilts alone by a window in a corner,
Thinking how to make it through the day.

Her leaves are becoming brittle and dry,
Her pedals are dull and brown.
She notices that her life is going downward,
That if you see her, you’ll see her with a frown.

Days, hours, and minutes go by,
When she realizes her life can not be on hold.
As she bows her head and closes her eyes,
She whispers, “I do not want to die alone.”

She feels like her life is falling apart,
Yet she still tries hard to hold on.
She feels vulnerable and delicate at this time,
But she knows not to ever give up.

Tears run slowly down her face,
As she sees her life turning so black.
Having feelings of loneliness and being incomplete,
She questions, “How can I get my life back?”

People walk by and smile at her,
Not knowing what she is going through.
They think she has a wonderful life,
When the truth is she’s been sad and blue.

As her life continues in a sadly way,
She knows very well her life will be hard.
Waiting for the love and happiness she longs for,
She lingers with a broken heart.

"LOVES ROSE"

  In a dream I saw a lady,a precious little rose 
with soft blue eyes that sparkled and a smile so warm it glows
  In her I found the universe,complete with moon and stars
and all the rest of heaven,beyond the planet Mars
  Where I tasted pure sunlight,saw sounds I never heard
as I held onto a moonbeam,felt the meaning of a word
  I had a rainbow wrap around me as I held this tender rose
inside a starlight's twinkle,where love forever grows
  Then I knew my prayers were answered,when I saw you in the light
all I had ever dreamed about,stood there in flowing white
  As we soared across the universe,you sat my soul aflame
and from now until forever,I will never be the same
  I have never held such tenderness,felt a heart so warm and kind
the seed you planted in my soul,now blossoms in my mind!

         Thats Courage of Love

I carry with me Color

I Carry With Me Color

If you stare at me long enough your eyes will burn hot ember 
          Until they burn into flaky cinders.
	Cinders blown with the wind to the bag 
                       Slung across my shoulder.
	A bag the color of an artist’s palette 
                       Filled with salmon pinks and indigo violets.
	I carry with me colors for many different occasions, 
                       And sometimes secrets.
	My marigold yellows are for sunshiny days 
                       And kids contagious laughter.
	I carry with me streaks of burning cinnamon red 
                       For lovers to embrace and ponder.
	Sometimes deep within my rainbow bag splashes wet sea foam green 
                       And blue for those in need of salty tears and a good cry.
	You might ponder why I carry this palette of colors weighing me down 
	           Day after day.
	That is simple, Color defines us. 
	           We carry colors with us every day, 
	Sometimes they weigh us down in murky umber black puddles, 
	           Sometimes they lift us up to the lavender sky.
	You ask me what I carry with me?
	           I carry with me all of your wasted color in my rainbow bag.
	One day, these broken cinders will be ready 
	         When you come back for them, 
	And that is when you will see your own colors 
                      Floating around you.

MY HEART

My Heart
Is jumping...Seeing you with joy
Is dancing...Creating his last with you
Is laughing...Having some sort of fun
Is humming...Making a sweet lullaby
Is now dying...you never woke up again.

The Hunger

Ah, you have returned to me.
My visage tracks your movement
bending with grace and longing,
molting layers, shedding down,
taking leave of dismay with abandon.

Ah, you have returned to me.
My eyes drink your beauty.
Your presence raises bloom to cheek.
Soon you will scent the dawn lilac.
Ah, Sol, you have returned 
melting us like lost wax.

Fly Home

Crippled by knowing
Freed by a barbed wire
Gashes in my skin
Flight is difficult

But I fly.

Sinking with the wind
Bound for the trees
I sing 
But not a happy tune

A cracking sound
A gasping breath
Quickly I sink
I want to go back.

But I can’t.

Visions appear
Did I make a mistake?
They let me out
After all.

Maybe this time
I really am hurt
Change my course
I’ll sing louder this time.

But they won’t.

Hopping back home
I can’t see it.
Paused for an eternity.
Dirt under my toes.

Red water around me
It’s broken.
I can’t fly home.
I’m sorry I left.

I’m sorry.

IF I COULD TOUCH THE HELM OF HER GARMENT

My darling sat so sweetly like a contented woman
her crown was knitted with topaz and pure glistering gold
her succulent soft skin brought mad thoughts to his knees
her face was more glistering than the night stars
her lovable lofty hips eclipsed the sun!
her dear dear tongue was wetter than the fishes of the ocean
her eyebrows were more ravishing than the early morning sun
her kiss being smoother than early morning delicacies
her laps will sink the holiest of men into the quicksands of passion
her seat radiates even more of her beauty


she stood up with full blown beauty from her seat
swaying and shaking her hips from side to side
mesmerized by her ambience, my emotion dissolved like a candle wax
and I forgot how to breath
She looked at me carefully and smiled
I then dashed towards her like a resourceful idiot controlled by emotion
but she meandered and walked away
I sat helplessly crying like an orphaned infant bird
why should i lose one of the most beautiful things on earth?
if she would not allow me to hold her,
then let her allow me to touch the helm of her garment
for this alone could give me all I wanted

Who is this darling of mine?
She is peace! absolute peace!! total peace!!!
that gives one joy and keeps one from trouble, sorrow and tears!

down.

I am draining quickly and I am screaming for help on the inside while I try to hold up on 
the outside.

need of restoration.

minute and every hour.

Whispered Love

As the sun rose once on a dawn
In its good-bye kiss to the earth at the horizon;
When the redness of her lips reflected on the sky
The earth was shy, looking down her eye;
The sun whispered:
“My sweetest, has anyone ever been in love so much-
As I have been with you for ages as such?
Every morning and evening I do meet you
There is eternity in my love, neither old nor new
Forever and ever I have been in love with you!!”

When that evening the sun came down
The earth gently did mischievously frown
Then it did whisper in the kissing sun’s ears
“My dearest, though I am proud to have you
Yet there is love to make us poor, though few
If you care to glance at the sunflower in love with the sun
Or the butterfly dancing with madness for the flower’s fun
The insects burning themselves to win the heart of the flame
The dew drops kissing the cheeks of the flower in sudden acclaim
You would realize….
It doth not matter how eternal your love has been
It matters though how infinite love you are in!!”

CHRISTIANS

 I'm Melvin, C.E.O. of T.W.I.S.T.,,,which stands for "The Way I See This"...
Here's some facts if you care to listen,
 they're about people called Bedside Christians.
Do they love the Lord?, sure they say so,
 if you notice to church they don't even go.
Step on their toes if you chance to dare,
 that's one sure way to get them to swear.
Then they will holler Lord forgive me,
 and turn around and kill, thinking God can't see.
                (1 John 3:15)
They praise God for an hour or two,
 and then curse out a person when they're thru.
Don't think that there are some I'm missing,
 next come the Creeping Christians.
They tip in after the doors are closed,
 make a mistake and they quickly turn up they're nose.
They're always on the go, never being still,
 trying to get into Heaven on their own free will.
Backslidden Christians I pray for the most,
 they've lost their trust in the Lord of host.
There are a few more I'll give you now,
 the Spirit will teach you to know how.
That's how to live for the Lord Jesus Christ,
 being a Simple Christian is o' so nice.
Bighead Christians think they know it all,
 sometimes they are truly on the ball.
When it comes to their walk it's another story,
 they forget to give God all the glory.
My friend they are quick to tell U what to do,
 and that God will always see you thru.
Problems come their way they begin to grumble,
 and you see them really start to crumble.
Sidewinder Christians go from this way to that way,
 never believing anything for more than one day.
Every doctrine they try to go by,
 not questioning or even wondering why.
They are Sidewinders because they go 
from side to side,
 they are always on the bandwagon for
 just a free ride.
These are the ones I love tho',
 cause they really don't know.
But let me tell you this my friends,
 noone gets to Heaven by having  loose ends.
                 SEE
We walk by faith and not by sight,
 and not by our own might.
May we be blessed to have spiritual understanding,
 so that we aren't living a life so demanding.
We should live lives that are totally shameless.
I've been all of the above Christians at one time 
or another, but I now know how to love my sister
and my brother...

T.W.I.S.T.

Palms by the Sea

Oh this Sea from left to right,
How my mind gathers your visions to my sight.
You clouds stray from over here to over there,
And my lungs fill deep as they gather you into my air.
I am the neutral zone with all of my love that I share
The “Palms by the Sea” give my visions their true light!
In each I can see myself inside of a seemingly height.
The Palms by the Sea are my only solemn oath I fight!
 Up inside of the tallest tree I shall surely come,
Your Earth, your Moon and your Sun I shall make them all come undone!
I am you as you breathe my life and it is your love that I shall proclaim in the moment I seize!
Up inside of you I am proclaiming my every single genuine need.
The “Palms by the Sea” guard the shores for my more, my all, or even none!

Maybe

It’s almost been 2 months for us now
You may ask yourself how?
Great communication is the key
I am happy you agree
Crying on each other shoulders
God, I love it when I hold her
We have been through good and bad
I hate it when you’re sad
I count the minutes till I see you again
My love for you is NOT pretend
I think about you 24/7
It’s like you came from the heavens
I love it when we just hold hands
Or long walks in the sand
Or maybe long night looking at the stars
Or maybe long trips in the car
Or maybe a movie tonight
Or maybe watching the sun light
Or maybe a romantic dinner for two
Baby, with you there is nothing to lose
The one thing I want you to always remember
No matter how rough it is please never surrender

Never-Never Land

I stare out into this huge blue Sea,
And the waves, well, they just carry me.
My mind drifts so far away,
Because the Ocean is where I lay!
I’m off to never-never land once again,
So take my hand and let this journey begin!
I listen carefully to the Oceans roar,
The waves, well they just help me soar.
My mind relaxes with my day,
Because the Ocean is where I always lay!
I’m off to never-never land on a hunch for so much more,
So take my hand and let’s find new places we can both explore!
I can see blue water with big fluffy white rolls,
Waves, well they just capture my entire soul.
My mind just helpless with my day,
Well, it is the Ocean where I lay!
Off in never-never land I can always see,
A gigantic Ocean covering over me!
Far away in never-never land near the Ocean is where I always lay.
Lifeless in the sand is where I’ll always be.
So take my hand and be lifeless with me in the sand.
Together, just you and me on our journey to never-never land,
Just lifeless in the sand, together you and I and always we’ll be hand in hand!

Silent Poet

In winter I nestle 
under your quilt warming me  
till snow melts.

In spring I bloom 
from your quilt to bear fruits
of everlasting joy.

In summer I watch 
hordes of backpackers, under my shades 
as heat wave makes them bored.
	
In fall I remember 
you, my sanctuary, full of uplifting smiles
as I, slowly, turn into gray.

Before your eyes I became 
the silent poet, longing for your warm
embrace when winter, again, comes.

He is a great fool
Who kept a strict rule

And we both use to have a dual

To he went to high school
My mother is very kind
She is always at the behind
Helping me in all kind
She always use to teach 
With a beautiful speech
Until the top I reach
Then about my ambition
This has a long mission
I want to be a business man

Priceless Penny

You smiled at me just the other day.
And what did I do? I just walked away.
Carrying myself over to the other way!
So now I miss you and literally I’ve died!
I weep until I release what I have sighed!
Now there is no place for me to run or hide.
 And all of that was just another priceless penny!
And believe me I have collected stacks of many!
 
I saw you when we were at or in the end.
And that’s when I knew where I had been.
I connected you to me from way back when.
Loving you invigorates my soul to up and live.
I’m more than enough and have plenty to give.
There is no-thing left for me to accept or forgive.
 
It is another adorned and decorated priceless penny!
I suppose I stand attesting time! So, did you get any?

Thief

I shall hide in my poem,
So that I may kiss your lips as you recite it
Filling it's essence of a heart delighted.

Last night my soul transcended time and space,
I sat upon your bed and gazed
upon your sweet face,

love came and filled my veins and flesh
with out thee oh beloved I cannot rest
thy goodness I cannot measure 
for you are that hidden treasure

your secret I will conceal and mines you will not tell
as dawn approached I knew I had to return to my hell
the loneliness of separate separated separation I know all to well

O beloved I came to you at night fall as dream
but now I must leave,
you cried out "Oh Capture the thief" there was know thief it was I the lover that stole one last look at your face prior to returning to this desolate lonely place

Quiet Attraction

‘Quiet attraction, you’re overwhelming elegance;

all I could do was sit there,

blushing could you tell?

No chance in moving just to re-think.

The wanting of being elsewhere,

I needed one more look before I left;

got the feeling you wanted that too.

Sadly just to many people blocked the way,

turned around, head down due to having no view of you.

Will next time be more difficult?

Awkwardness in a room full of people,

now your work colleagues becoming aware,

it is not so quiet now.

Making tales in my head,

multiple versions of the way we could meet

but need of seeing you someplace else without eyes watching,

without the heat of embarrassment waiting,

for these thoughts to be said.’

God Has You....A Dedication To The Victims Of V. Tech

Your smiling faces
Promising futures you had
But someone full of hate
Who blamed his ills on others
Instead of taking responsibility for them
Has ended the lives of happy, loving people
Something he was not
Your family, your friends
And the  nation are grieving
Those who knew and loved you
Will never forget you
You still live on
In memory
Your souls are with our father
God has you
 



I dedicate this to the families and friends who lost their loved ones. God Bless!

The Shadow Box

Locked inside a viewing case
My heart is on display
For everyone to see the bruises
And see all the many abuses
A broken can convey

A passerby would probably notice
A few parts still in tact
Hardly recognized amongst the tattered
Pieces that have been shattered
From the fury of my past

People used to say 
Look how beautiful and strong
It's so consistent in its beating
Never thinking it would be leading
Down a path that could be wrong

 
You wouldn't know that now
It's frozen in its case
Hardly moving, barely there
But if you took the time to stare
You would see something not taken at face

Still amongst the weary
Heart that once was strong
A small beat can be seen
And it has a certain gleam
That has been there all along

One's Inner Mind

Anger and sadness combined into a blend.
Expressing your feelings that lie within.
Not able to understand or say anything.
Your life you live, the impossible seems like a dream.
Heated and tired of self-playing games.
While hurting others, don't point or say no ones name.
Everyone is or should be treated the same.
Listening to my heart can make a torch burst into flames.
Proving your point on paper, not able to say a word.
Can't understand this feeling, feeling lower than a curb.
Pain is love, but pain can be worser than that.
Because pain falls into anger, leaving sadness without a partner at back.
Feeling lost, helpless and hurt within my eyes, I blink.
Able to stand, but fall within every 5 steps, I sink.
Needing a powerful prayer only signifies that I need God’s help.
Pain and unhappiness is something I've always felt.
Wishing all my inner feelings I couldn’t ever kept.
Wanting to say how I feel, but my words hold me back.
Eager to say something, but there's no love on my track.
The love I had was bunched into a pack.
It was thrown away, while my mind was hacked.
Waiting to speak and let my mind flow and go through.
Still waiting for my impossible dreams to come true.

The Look of Love

Eyes so bright with a light that shines, 
You brought this to me.
Lost time the two that be!
Eyes of light with the look of love in sight!
Eyes that glare with a gleam that shows,
You revealed this to me.
Things to know the two that be!
Eyes that dream with the look of love or so it seemed,
Eyes with tears a promised pain,
You gave this to me.
A list that I retain the two that be!
You are the eyes that clear the look of loves hidden fears.
Eyes with mystery shine in you,
You lay this before me.
So much I do the two that be!
Eyes with dignity the look of love in all of its reality! 
Eyes with deepness a reflection of you,
You presented this to me.
A lie in my truth the two that be!
Eyes with achievement the look of love in all of its completeness!
Eyes of you in a vision of me,
Forever you and me until I die the two that be,
For you’re the eyes that already knew the look of love with its promise renewed!

My Son, Never Forgotten

Times drift by,
Yesterdays are passed,
Memories never forgotten.
Memorable things now stored away,
Favorite things you so enjoyed,
Now safely treasured in a box.
Your first baby blanket neatly folded,
Years of artwork carefully packed,
Heartfelt poems written by you,
Now treasured and protected.
Your favorite chair,
Still sits on the porch.
At times as I sit outside reflecting with God,
I look into the empty chair
And wish you were there.
Photographs of you of years gone by,
Now lay safely in a box,
Always to be looked at,
To share and reflect upon.
The last words you spoke to me,
Still replay in my heart
Never to be forgotten,
Praying to hear you speak again,
“I love you too, mama!”
The last moments spent with you
Are treasured memories created,
Filed away safe in my heart,
Always to be cherished with love.
I miss you coming home late,
Always wondering while I wait.
I miss the way you pleaded for me
To warm a meal, to get a drink,
And though I was tired or though it was late,
Out of love I gave in to your hearts desire;
Then excitedly in a child like voice, you'd say,
“Thank you mommy, I love you!”
A part of me is lost,
An empty space fills my heart,
An empty room where you once laid your head.
So many things you left behind,
So many lives you've touched,
Never to be forgotten, but always remembered.
I do not know why,
For it is not for me to understand.
The time will soon come
For me to know the truth
As to why you had to go.
Some day very soon,
When Gods perfect plan is revealed
And when in paradise eternal,
Is when I shall see your smile,
Look into your eyes,
And hear you say, once again,
“I love you too, mama!”

The rustle of a leaf
And a smiling mouse.
The rustle of a leaf
And the cold cold chill.

The winter's sun looks sad.
Flowers cease to bloom.
My love for winter, is beyond the sun
My love for winter is gone.

You killed the trees
And the rustling leaves.
The tiny mouse ran from you.
Did you ask the mouse, why?

The rustle of the leaf is gone.
My empty heart is dead.
The rustle of the leaves,
My rodent friend is dead.

Thank you for the gift of love, now you are sharing it up above.
You had many things to say, All in a caring way.
You always saw good in everyone, No matter what they have said or done.

Even though it must have felt like a ton.
You were always the strength of the family, Now we must let you rest calmly.
As we say our goodbyes, As tears roll down our eyes.
I know your place in heaven has a good view, Because you are telling God....
I need to keep an eye on a few.
I know you will always be in our hearts and mind.
So Grandma, I must go, but we will never forget that you were one of a kind.

A glistening show of emotion.
I express feelings of anger, happiness, sadness,
And even fear, laughter, love, or relief.

I am the release of thoughts held back,
Things not said, and bottled emotions.
My purpose is to relieve you
Of your strongest feelings.

I help people work through long held issues,
And relieve them of stress.
Many people are ashamed of me,
But you can’t control what’s inside.

Most of the time I am cried because
Someone I trust has hurt me.
I try to act strong, but I have to let go
Of the tied up emotions held back too long.

I shine and reflect 
As I flow uncontrollably 
From your clouded eyes.
Burning your cheek
As I fall carelessly down your face.

Here we go again
you ringing my phone
Here we go again

Weeping Willow

His whispers are like the wind
As he rests his head on me
Soft cries of a lover lost
His tears are like the seas

Wilting with the pain
As he falls apart
From words left unsaid
A lover’s broken heart

I wrap my arms around him
He drifts off to sleep
It isn’t any wonder
Why this willow weeps

Perception

 In an effervescent picture I see you and me
           I'm coloring in the emotions that because of 
you have come to my mind

You inspire the best in me and when we touch
            You bring forth desire, a desire to hold
you tighter, to be pieced together so tight

With my acceptance of you inside
Slow and easy, side to side, as the fire increases
the depth and speed and desire of knowing that I
can experience this as a part of love

And as the climax comes to an end, I can still
       be held in your loving arms and every day
see you smile and to once again create
    a new picture and pursue to satisfy that same desire

Give Way

Could I tell you that your special, and would you believe it with your own eyes

Or can you see it without a mirror, or would you get lost in your soul searching 
leaving you mesmerized

But come what may in what I call you, or what it simply seems to be

For you are very special, and it sometimes may take a life time to see

Am I saying it because of the things you do or say

Or am I just saying these words to make you feel that way

So you can give into your expectations each passing day

No your special alright, that's what I know and see

And no matter what other's may think and say

For my dear give way for they can never truly see what it is I see and why your so 
very special to me

Nobody

In the midst of my adolescence
he invaded my personal space,
ignited my nervous system-
weakened all physical defenses.
The blinds over my eyes
were dusted and opened-
revealing the sensation of love and warmth.
We've shared:oxygen,ethinicity,
a mutual love for the art of music.
Why can't we share our lives?
Let our lives intertwine?Discover the empty spaces 
and let passion fill every gap?

I love him because he's not the prototype
feel him, because he's enhanced my senses
know him because he resembles my inner self
need him because I have no one else.

Who can satisfy me-give me what I need?
Who can make me fell this way: NOBODY

The Little Bird

“Let’s fly!” said the little bird up in a tree.
“But I’m scared” said the bigger bird.
“Scared? You?” said the little bird,
“Don’t worry, I’ll catch you if you fall.”
“But the big wise owl,” said the bigger bird,
“he didn’t catch me, and the glorious eagle, 
he didn’t catch me either, and I trusted them.”
“I may be just a little bird,” said the little bird,
“but I can do something they cannot..”
“What?” said the bigger bird.
“I can fly under your wing,” said the little bird,
“and help you learn to fly on your own”.

So the little bird took wing,
And the bigger bird flapped its wings real hard,
Closed his eyes and left the branch.
As he felt himself falling, he began to doubt,
“The bigger birds that I trusted with their size and 
Strength all let me fall… that little bird won’t save me either.”
And just as fast as that thought began,
He felt a little tickle under his wing,
And gently he began to fly right.
And there, under his broken wing,
Was the little bird, balancing his wing on top of him.

“You… you aren’t going to leave me?”
Said the bigger bird.
“No,” said the little bird, “you need help,”
“your wing is broken and needs to heal.”
“Thank you, little bird,” said the bigger bird.
“Don’t worry,” said the little bird, 
“It’s a long journey, but I know the way”.

So the little bird helped the bigger bird
Grow strong enough to fly on his own.
And one day, the bigger bird ventured out
All by himself and discovered he could fly.
“I can fly all by myself now!” sung the bigger bird.
“I see..” said the little bird feeling unimportant.
“Don’t worry”, said the bigger bird,
“I won’t leave you either.”
“Even though you don’t need me anymore?”
Said the little bird.
“I need you now more than ever,” said the bigger bird,
“for you never let me fall and stayed the whole way,”
“and on that journey I learned something else..”
Said the bigger bird.
“Oh?” said the little bird.
The bigger bird bent down to the little bird and said,
“You needed me too”.

Changes

You are right where you are suppose to be
If your not, move

If you are thinking about something you don’t like
Change what you do

Are you loving someone who can’t love you back
Love more and your chances increase

Are your goals out of reach
Stretch your arms till they ache

Are you talking to yourself
Go out and  greet the world

Do you feel lost in life
Find love within yourself

YOU WALKED OUT MY LIFE

I love you why didn’t you
Mean what you said.
You told me you would never leave
My stupid self believed you.
Everything was going all right.
Yes we had our ups and downs every night
All that stuff you would say to me 
You did nothing but used and abused me.
We were together two damn years
Was she them years.
You told me you never cared about your ex
That she was nothing 
I will never forget.
I loved you for you even though you never had much
I believed in trust.
I thought you said money can’t buy you love.
Why did you leave me for her?
Is it because she has money, house, and car?
I just want you to know that you were my first love and 
I will never forget that then you had the nerve to tell me
Lets be friends 
Like that’s going to work, I can’t see you with her.
I can’t call you on the phone. You don’t even stay at
Home.
I was so comfortable around you
I could talk to you about anything.
I felt like an angel when I was in your arms.
Now I am here all alone
Wondering what went wrong.
Day by Day I will move on. 
Your love is like a sad song.

Natural breath

Whispers in my ear,
tussling of my hair,
and sweeping me
off my feet.
Wrapping a blanket
around me,
warmth engulfs my form,
new breath, 
blown gently upon my skin.
Goose pimples,
shivers down my spine;
bodily senses pricked
top to toe....
as you encircle me,
I move to find comfort.
Willing you to climax,
that I might find satisfaction,
a quieter state of mind,
a stillness,
as the sun shines once more.
I anticipate your return...



Author's notes

Okay, so this is slightly different from me....I wanted to kind of personify the wind here; 
making the reader unsure as to whether it were a lover I was thinking of.... Try re-reading 
thinking of it the other way, I think it works.....

Blank Slate 5-7-03

So she made a few mistakes
She didn’t even mean to make them
Now she might as well not try
To put on her happy face
Because no one cares if she starts to cry.


She’s apologized and begged forgiveness 
But no one listens ‘cause they don’t believe in second chances
It’s like she’s not even there
She’s just a whisper in this new world
And it’s not fair.


What would she give to start all over?
What would she give for a place where no one knows her name?
A place where she has no reputation
A place where she’s made no mistakes
What would she for a blank slate?


It’s like everybody else is perfect
Like they got something pure to compare to her to
Everybody’s done something at least one thing wrong
They’ve got some starches on their cup of life.


So why do they make her like she doesn’t belong?


Mistakes are always part of the past
And even though, that is why it shapes our future.
You can learn from both of them
Well, this girl has been taught by all her bad choices
And she’s never gonna make them again.


What would she give to start all over?
What would she give for a place where no one knows her name?
A place where she has no reputation 
A place where she’s made no mistakes
What would she give for a blank slate?

Flavor

Caramel,Vanilla, and Chocolate,
As sweet as sugar,
Melting when the sun touches it,
Smooth and warm,
More than a mouthful.

Glistening in the sun like  a beautiful horizon,
Looking like drops of sugar when it melts,
I enjoy kissing and touching it,
Some even love to squeeze it,
I love my Caramel, Vanilla, and Chocolate skin.

I could not go 
I could not eat
I could not smoke
I could not breathe
I could not live 
I could not die
I could not go 

I had to go 
I had to eat 
I had to smoke 
I had to breathe
I had to live 
I had to let the love die 
I had  to go without him there by my side

Love Yourself

Love can mean a million things but if you don’t love yourself love is a meaning 
less word that needs to be planted so that it can grow into the next president or 
the biggest icon of America. But without the hope and love and spirit and the 
ability to love yourself, you will find yourself in a world of trouble because if you 
don’t love and respect yourself who will.

Silver hair illuminating 
The sea
Upon the star-filled night 
I whisper your name
Sailing 
On cold night

Oh, Morning Rose

Oh, morning rose,
So full of prose;
Greet the early sun with your pinkish cheeks;
As I see you glisten thru the day,
Happy and proud I am; 
And, when times come for you to write 
Your own cause, remember me, 
Your oldie prose, always, I’ll be.

Fond Reminders

If fond reminders seek a passion void
Then leave without a voice of "I love you"
Make him feel that you are still annoyed
And lead him to this place without a view.

That this allure has possibly been used
It far outstretches things beyond his reach,
He doesn't mean to show what seems abused
But manfully designed he's lost for speech.

Yet wait, the full intent of passion fills
What seeing less of you has seemed to be
He wants to understand you, with these skills
That taught him, most of all, 'It's not just me'.

While closer you've become while there are two
Converse in turn, just listening content
Creating words with meaning, ones that woo,
You back again without the need for vent.  

And gradually the sway of tides embrace
Can sunsets on horizon sleep in peace,
'Love', is such a word that shows the face
With smiles that no frustration can release.

Agonize Me

My body is aching and my mind is sweating.
 I have limited source of energy stored
My heart has volunteered to keep pumping red wine in my veins
My bones are tender sweet mellows of marsh
But I have to make love to you
I have to find the strength to bring the tears out of my secret storage
It’s gotta happen!
Though I am of no power
And no mental anxiety
My sophistication must prepare my maturity to perform for you
It has to be strong, passionate, and long lasting of all
In distraught I have to do my very best
U don’t know what I’m feeling 
But you feel like making love
Under the circumstances, 1-minute is all I care to demand
Yet my wish has not been granted and I will endure a legacy of a night that will 
AGONIZE ME!

Save Me

Will you come and save me?
I am wrapped up in fear.
Come and hold me.
Run your fingers through my hair.
Tell me things will be alright.
I feel so lost without you.
I am left to battle alone.
Will you come and save me?

Love For the Right Reasons

Here's a copy of your poem so you can simply paste it into the Poets' Workshop 
template.

Love doesn't build up your expectations to only let you down.

Love doesn't live to tell you a lie.

Love doesn't hurt the heart it's in.

Love characterizes the person within.

Love is a combination of you and me.

Love doesn't justify wrong actions we make,

But love simplifies the losses we take.

Love has so many definitions that we don't understand,

That we take if for granted instead of in God's hand.

So next time you love, love for the right reason,

For when love comes again you won't miss the season.

She Stands

She stands at the harbor door
so strong, her heart of stone
is like one of a Saint.
Her eyes of wisdom have seen
the coming of greatness, and
she welcomes them, much as a 
mother cuddling her newborn babe.
A sight to behold for many a lost vessel,
searching for the comfort, once forsaken
needing refugee in safe arms.
Tears she has dried, while allowing dreams
to become reality, with new found hope.
A giver of compassion, love, and acceptance,
never swaying, she stands.
A beacon of warmth as a new life begins,
guarding the rights, and safety for all.
Yes, she stands at the door.

I fell in love last nite

I fell in love last nite 
I let my inhibitions go
I put pen to paper 
and I just wrote 
You see the paper
is my perfect mate
just as much as 
a blinking cursor
awaiting the first word
That blank sheet 
symbolizes everything
that is me 
I am a palate 
waiting to be painted
I love how I can relate
So carefully he caresses
my deepest emotions out of me
So patiently he listens to my side
I couldn't imagine life without him
I could spend all nite just looking into his eyes
One night with him and I give birth to miracles
I fell in love last nite
with this paper and pen
I came to him sad and lonley
He wiped my tears away 
Told me not to be afraid
I never knew how deeply a pen and paper
could affect me 
Until I wrote something down 
using my lovers amazing skills
and released all the pain 
onto my pen and papers shoulders

Tame

You tried to tame me
from my own vibrancy-

You failed your task as.
I took off my mask-

I like me but you 
just couldn't see, the person I was, to the person 
I am-

You tried to tame me from your lies and deceit
and now I've become
the one I should be.....

Fear from the distance

Eyes glued firmly open, awake, I
Watched the time slipping quickly by
Frightened,fear touched me, softly from a distance
Was not long now, until our goodbye

Couldnt close my eyes. Couldnt fall asleep
For tomorrow would come as fast as a bomb
My body tried to prepare to be shattered into poeces
To be cold, empty and alone once again.

Morning exploded into my senses. I could not
Use any. Numb, everywhere inside and then
Evil hands forced us to seperate
Snatched away, uncapable of anything.

Pain. Emptiness.Loneliness. Felt it all.
I was not properly prepared for the fall.
Crying inside, noone to hear but you
My heart bled continously; teared into two.

My heart will always be with you. Only you
Could make everything OK.We just had to remember
And were happy for the moments we shared.
Sweet Sweet memories let me dream


Now i need you more than ever, Wearing 
You close to me, smelling, feeling your presence here
But i'll continue to exist without you here
Clinging on to your heart you left with me.


I wrote this for my wonderful Demetris,when we were in our long distance 
relationship.
