Professor Hapgood’s studies on ancient maps were fixed
Einstein said his theories should be added to history’s mix
Perhaps it proved too big a leap for other minds to take
But his ancient culture findings, Hapgood would not forsake
6000 BC, before Egypt’s pyramids were built
Millennia before Pompeii’s lava had been spilled
Or small fishing boats hugged the Mediterranean Coast
And Columbus’s “daring” voyage was not even close
Ancient seafarers drew with astounding accuracy
Maps of the world they once knew, the fishermen’s legacy
Antarctica sans ice and closer to the equator
The Mid-Atlantic Ridge once an above-sea sky scraper
Siberia touching Alaska with no Bering Strait
(Palin could have seen Russia without snow from her back gate)
Cuba, England, Sweden, too, on these maps appear clearly
But Sweden’s fully glacial; England’s blanket an ice sheet
If we believe Hapgood, a civilization once thrived
Thousands of years before language; maps keep memories alive
Technology to chart the seas was lost in ancient times
With latitude and longitude measurements quite refined
Sea kings’ cities may have succumbed during the last Ice Age
Surviving nations lost their skill when history turned a page
Geography to be found again when the Earth had healed
“Discoverers” reinvented the forgotten ship’s wheel
Magellan, perhaps not the first to sail around the globe
Admiral Byrd not the first man to visit the South Pole
Spirits from a colony of seafarers can be found
From deep beneath Antarctic ice, they try to spread the word
But laugh they must as scientists forecast global warming
And man attempts to alter life and heed their dire warning
Shifting poles? Natural cycles! Men would be well advised

French trader Tavernier in a greed-inspired way
Glared at an idol of a temple in Mandalay
Prying a gem from its eye socket, a curse prevailed
Tavernier died bankrupt soon after making the sale
Louis XIV bought the stone, 1668
A gift to his mistress, Louis had it cut heart-shape
For dabbling in Black Magic, this madam was burned
A century passed with the curse’s power unlearned
The diamond was then bestowed on Marie Antoinette
For wearing it with boastful pride, Marie lost her head
She lost respect from the commoners of her nation
This gem has since been linked to the French Revolution
Cut far smaller, the gem resurfaced, 1830
When a London banker bought the rock of infamy
Henry Thomas Hope survived; the curse appeared to break
For 70 years the Hope Diamond’s wrath lay in state
A Hope heir’s marriage collapsed; his wife evoked the curse
As she foretold, subsequent owners’ fates would be worse
French broker Jacques Colot went mad, suicide his road
Sultan “Abdul the Damned,” insane after being deposed
Then to an American the Hope Diamond was sold
Washington Post owner Maclean watched horrors unfold
Other household members died, but it was Maclean’s son
Ten years old, struck by a car, his Dad’s mind came undone
Ultra-light ray tests caused the mystery diamond to glow
With safety in mind, Hope’s eerie stone found a new home
It remained locked on display in the Smithsonian
Could it be to blame for all that’s wrong in Washington?
Tragedy also tied to raiders of King Tut’s tomb
Perhaps lessons can be gleaned from those who met their doom
Robbing temples, burial sites, outcomes always bad
Greedy souls’ quests for wealth can leave them totally mad
So don’t expect me to purchase a diamond in the rough
Considering this gem’s history, a sandstone’s quite enough
I never knew following dreams could be this lonely,
But up on the hill, looking back, thank God I'm not the old me.
If the tears will fall, let them be;
I believe this is God's plan, follow your dreams.
There’s torture of the body
And the torture of the mind
But the torture of the heart
Is the most horrendous kind.
To know you must not express
The wealth of emotions felt
To have to suppress the dream
Is to burn until you melt.
You are careful of each word
And you laugh despite the pain...
It’s torture to be in doubt
If his love can keep you sane
To know it can never be
For you’re lost inside love’s maze,
To accept it’s a lost cause
Is to set the heart ablaze
Torture is a painful thorn
That your little heart impales
It won’t stop till you’ve bled dry
You don’t dare to voice its tales
He is near enough to touch
But his heart is worlds away
Can torture be worse than this?
No, the rest is just child’s play
An orange little ball,
Tattered and torn to bits,
No longer does it fly straight,
Its course lost, its path in fits,
An orange little ball,
Sad within its cracks and in its creases,
Faded bumps, its lost its grip,
It now falls to pieces,
Orange little ball,
Come to death smiling,
Never live just to die,
Happiness lives in and amidst the crying,
Orange little ball,
Wipe the tears away,
There is peace to be found,
In and amongst the fray.
Does everybody feel the same as I do?
Lost? Adrift? Disconnected? Confused?
Does anyone know how to ease the hurt of truth
For the accuser, as well as the accused?
I've heard there's bliss
Found somewhere in ignorance
For those who have been stripped
Of their already fleeting innocence
So I continue to move through this life
Practiced smile, that doesn't quite reach my eyes
Which instead reflect the emptiness
That fills me up inside
It hurts to feel so alone and uncertain
Consumed by doubt and fear
Eventually life becomes a burden
Damaged beyond all repair
The temptation to numb all sensation
It more powerful than one might believe
I'll sacrifice the pleasure, to relieve the devastation
As passion gives way to apathy
Say whatever you want
About those who dwell on the past
Go ahead and judge me from your moral soapbox
While you cower behind your mask
The opinions of most matter very little to me
It won't be taken to heart as you intend it to be
First you'd have to practice the words you preach
If you ever do then I promise I'll start listening
There on that bench, here in this park
Was where I met God, alone in the dark.
He wasn’t adorned with riches galore.
He was a pauper man, not needing more.
He sat with me then, as I was so scared.
Just eight years old, and I got lost at the fair.
Separated from family, didn’t know where to go
I sat on the bench and waited there so.
Along came this man, scared of him I was
Until he sat next to me, I lost fear because
He spoke with a tone and offered a hand,
A sign to me that he would understand.
I told him my story. He said not to fear.
He’d stay with me until family was near.
I felt reassured and safe as could be.
His warm soft voice, it blanketed me.
Then in the distance, my dad had appeared.
He was right all along, I had nothing to fear.
My dad came up crying and hugged me so tight.
I then turned to that man to wish him goodnight.
He was there on the bench, I knew it for sure.
When I turned my head, he wasn’t there anymore.
I looked at my dad and told him of my tale
He smiled back at me and fell awfully pale.
He said, “Son when you need him, God does appear.
It’s not very strange that He was right here.
He serves and protects and loves us all much.
I believe He was here and gave you His touch.”
I was amazed at those words that my father said.
I couldn’t wait to go home and pray at my bed.
“Dear God up in the Heaven, I thank you, I do.
You sent me a savior and that savior was You.
You reached to this child, protected this night.
You offered him hope and provided light.
You took away his fear and made him feel warm.
Mostly, Dear God, you kept him from harm.
In the mist of life, I have found myself
lost and alone in a wood dark and gray.
A chill to the bone, a fall to the depth
a longing to feel the warm rays of day.
There was but one road which ran to a church.
There was many roads that ran far in the wood.
Like a fool I have run past Elm and Birch
this lost road turned to a trail where I stood.
A dark cloud now forms a narrow cold sky
a wind from the North, which blows coastally.
My choice brings no answer only a sigh
it made years ago and so willfully.
Weary am I of a life on this path
wishing to visit my option again.
Fearing my Lord or fearing His wrath
I backtrack this road but only in vain.
Before me a puzzle of rock and stone
reaching far back before a road in time
planted me deep in a mist with no tone
searching for a life, that I could call mine.
This narrowing track turns back on itself,
the undergrowth soon will stand in my way.
In the mist of life, I have found myself
Lost and alone in a wood dark and gray.
An empty room was the scenery to his death
Not a single living soul was present to witness the events that took place
A sliding door covered with a mirror spoke back to him with his own reflection words spoken and breath
A change he saw in the playful mirror, he had a different face
A broken heart powered his spirit, a spirit that had lost all sense of direction
Fake, selfish to the heart he crawled into his path
All along yearning for his fathers attention
A feeling that he never met, for he was truly lost in the yearning of affection
Anger flowed in his heart
Hope was locked up, it wasn't free always it had a bail
He never truly mean to harm anyone, yet the ones closest to him felt it all, saw his spirit fail
Alas all was lost, his family, his dreams slapped him awake, awake to his reality in part
All alone, at the bottom of the pit
His heart was bleeding and not a soul around to aid him, he fell to his knees
With his heart in his hand, reaching for the sky, he asked Jesus to take his heart and dwell in it
An ugly howl of the mind with the spirit and soul all at one, gasping for air, for life he said "please"
Shattered, his all, he was nothing but dirt with dirt
His eyes blinded by the endless tears could not see the sky, a beautiful night it was
He asked with all his mind, heart and spirit to be forgiven for his past, for his fault for his flaws
At point zero he blacked out, he died
In his death he saw a light, brighter that the sun itself, it blinded the heart
A presence he had never felt before came over him, yet there was no fear
Pleaing to his understanding, he knew it was good, and that shortly he would awake from his sleep
Wrong, for the light drew closer and it even spoke, at the words that vented into him, he did weep
A sense of security, of purity overwhelmed his body
Afraid he was not, for His Lord was the light
In the beginning, from the very start He was there to guide him into life herself, teaching him how to fight
Darkpoet died that night, but a new being was born! In the name of Jesus Christ, he was called Jeremiah
-God, father I have been seeking you all my life,
Here I am Lord to serve You, My King.
Jeremiah I shall be, to write for You Father.
Jeremiah Eduardo Orozco
My heart is on Your shoulders,
And You are lifting me up.
With every spoken tender gesture,
I fall a little farther in love.
Out in the distance thunder rolls
the wind it howls like poor lost souls,
The rain it pounds like angry fist
across the land it falls like mist.
Inside this house I sit alone
I've lost my power, internet and phone,
While outside the storm continues to rage
not stopping for an eternal age.
Nature does what nature will
we have no control over it still,
it seems so very awful funny
we can't control it with all our money.
Rob me of my purity,
But once again it's all my fault;
Fell into the trap of false promises
Because I pressed play instead of pause.
Swallowed up somewhere in the South Pacific
Amelia and her Lockheed Electra vanish one day
On July 2, 1937 her last radio contact received
In that time, poor navigation tools at play
In an attempt to circumnavigate the globe
With Navigator Noonan she bravely set out
From South America they headed due east
Following a planned but difficult route
Africa, India, S.E. Asia and on to New Guinea
But she never arrived at the next scheduled stop
Howland Island, a ship standing by to refuel
In the vast ocean, this land only a tiny drop
Many scenarios imagined over the years
Ditched in the water and lost to the sea
Crashed on an island and finally succumbed
Knowing that lost to the world she must be.
At home in the vast reaches of the sky
Breaking ground for the women of her time
Scholar, author and fashion trend setter
A unanswered tragedy, she still in her prime
* In December of 2010, 3 small bones, a shoe, and some makeup found on
Nakumaroro Island in the vicinity of Howland Island. DNA studies underway to
determine whether they might be Amelias.
I get on my bike and I pedal for hours
You'd think I'd be skinny by now
Ha! Not a chance my belly's still fat
I look like an over stuffed sow
Pants are so large they could sail a boat
As the mast on the big ocean blue
People are cruel and say “Hey there Tubby!”
“Better stay away from the stew!”
Try not to show how much it bothers me
Saying, “Your mother dresses you funny!”
But deep down inside I've lost all my pride
To be skinny I'd give lots of money
My scale says, “One at a time please!”
I kick it in anger 'cross the room
I've no one to blame for getting this way
It's the buckets of food I consume
So call me a fatty or call me a tub
But don't call be late for my chow
I'll soon get serious about losing this fat
But it's just not the time right now!

This was written before I went on a mission and lost 30 pounds!
You say I'm a little crazy
And I heartily agree….
But this you must be sure of
Crazy's not confined to me!
We are ALL a little crazy
In all minds, a monster or two
A little bit of insanity
Grows and thrives inside of YOU!
The fears that lurk in the shadows
The voiceless terrors of day
The psychosis that lingers
That whispers, "You're not OK!"
Yes, I'm a little crazy
My mind’s lost in the abyss
I'm sure that I’ve seen you there
In that crazy land of bliss!
Yes, I need a happy pill
To get me through my day
At least I know my "crazy"
Is being kept at bay!
Yes, I'm a little crazy
I have a troubled mind
But don't you dare go and tell me
That I'm just one of a kind!
I know that you have issues
For you're human; are you not?
So don't pretend you're "normal"!
At times, YOU have lost the plot.
Yes, I'm a little crazy
Just look at me and sneer
But me thinks your brand of "crazy"
Is the one to really fear!!!!!
Eileen Manassian Ghali
Devoted to those poor lost souls.
I'm bombarded with a deafening silence
As I sit here alone in my room
Thinking of how my life might have been
Encased in this dark dismal tomb
I once had it all or so I had thought
I walked with a confident air
But fate intervened and changed everything
I'm now travelling this road of despair
My closest friend is this bottle of whiskey
The relief I get from the pain
Of a lifetime of utter sadness and sorrow
When I dream we're together again
If only my words could convince you my love
But they just seem so hollow and trite
It appears so hopelessly futile to me
As I lay awake lamenting each night
So I guess I'll go back to my bottle of booze
And the only true friend I've had
I'll think of how things might have been
Bombarded by thoughts so sad

I could have sworn he was blue,
The little boy no one knew,
He was slain by stony profit,
Mortal flesh to fill a pocket.
Some say he spoke in faces,
Living soul’s tiny traces,
Others claim he walked with fire,
To light the path he saw with dire.
The forests heard him from a far,
Leaves would murmur for their star,
Whose lonely orbit lit the sky,
By way of praising those who try.
Birds would gaze and bless their days,
Content to dwell in nature’s maze,
Where up was up and down was down,
Right from wrong had home in town.
Small and light but full of passion,
Holy creatures of earthly fashion,
Their mystic hearts bled for life,
Hoping to heal human strife.
Picasso’s boy saw it coming,
Months before he heard the drumming,
Of beating silence greed would come,
By those whose lie one can not sum.
The will of love asks some to kneel,
To offer hope for them that feel,
A tree must fall when darkness breathes,
To fill the void with light’s soft breeze.
In the woods a shadow prayed,
For those who live unafraid,
That better days will come again,
Again, again, and once again
I could have sworn he was blue,
The little boy no one knew,
He was slain by stony profit,
Mortal flesh to fill a pocket.
So much happens I can’t explain.
Thoughts fly by much like a train.
I know things can’t remain the same,
I can’t help what’s inside my brain.
I have these visions and see you,
I remember things we used to do.
It has passed and now is gone,
I hold on, but for how long.
I remember when there was a time,
When I could see at least a sign.
Still, I seem to fall further behind,
Now so much is gone I can’t find.
All I wanted was to smile,
Now it seems I am out of style.
I once had love but now it’s lost,
So many opportunities that I tossed.
I want it all to go away,
I have to leave I cannot stay.
I look around, I’ve lost my way.
I think of change perhaps I may.
I seem to get lost inside myself,
Then I become someone else.
I try to see the light of day,
All the clouds get in my way.
I feel tired and lose some fight.
Light gives way, brings forth the night.
I look for answer but there’s none in sight.
I can’t explain so I hold on tight.
I need to lie down and get some sleep,
Close my eyes and count some sheep.
Maybe tomorrow will be better than today,
The fabric of life appears tattered and frayed.
It is not enough
For you to want to save me
Not even all your love
Could serve to liberate me
So flee from me in fear
Do not allow your emotions to be stirred
Dry your eyes of their empathic tears
They will only leave your vision blurred
For I am a soulless mechanism
seeking only my own gratification
A force of powerful pessimism
My life a result of such manifestation
So sweet of you to offer your light
But my void will blot it out
You can't illuminate the darkness inside
Into the darkness I will drag you down
This isn't who I wanted to be
It's who I've become just the same
Your eyes may be open but you'll never see
And I can no further explain
Yes, only love can break your heart,
Take your world and tear it apart.
Best to be sure right from the start,
The sun shines as clouds do part.
I try to remember but then I forget,
So many dreams turn into regret.
I reach for something but I’m not there yet,
So much in life seems to ride on a bet.
The sun awakes and shines in my eyes,
With nowhere to hide I lose my disguise.
Love is not something that money can buy,
I watch to see another day pass by.
As time passes I just drift away,
I seem to get lost in things that you say.
I wish for change, perhaps it may,
I was hoping this time some could stay.
It starts to get hot as thoughts melt together,
I get lost in a dream filled with white heather.
They say there might be a change in the weather,
Still I drift away and float much like a feather.
I can’t forget how it was in the start,
Nothing could ever tear us apart.
Sometimes it was like some kind of fine art.
Only to realize that love can break your heart.
Every year she returns to the scene
This place in question where life has been mean
On muddy banks down by the waterline
Alone in her tomorrow's, solitary resigned
Having already lost her husband in his freedom fight
No mother should enter this fateful night
Her baby, her son, that a mother sees to grow
Wandered from her safety to that fast water flow
All innocent and fearless little steps slowly walk
In playful surrounds just barely in talk
Noises up ahead attract this mind to peek see
So curious they are when they get a chance to break free
Down an unclimbable bank he faces his lure
Once a slow flowing stream soon to take natures pure
Yesterdays storms allowed the heavens to cry
Whilst his mother kneels down and still asks herself why
In her hand she clasps a bunch of Roses so red
Tears fill her eyes knowing her tomorrow's lie dread
Once again she looks back, facing a mothers fear
A last glimpse of the flow, feeling her lost sons tears
Moon is to the night,
As sun is to the day,
Aligning only in sight,
But, eclipses do not stay.
Lightning exists in a cloud,
The ground is miles away,
Their connection can be loud,
Electrifying when it may.
The sun sets on the sea,
But, never touches it,
You shine light on me,
Igniting my fire a bit.
I am way down here,
Wishing on a falling star,
See that falling tear,
You are near, yet so far.
I walk a lonely road,
You walk down another,
Writing lost love odes,
And never finding each other.
I was thinking I need a smile to get into,
With all that I see I am lost without you.
Outside the winds blow, they call your name,
Everything changes, nothing is left the same.
I think of another park and one more Sunday,
I search for the words but can’t find a way.
I try to pull it together yet wonder what’s true,
I remember a face and then I’m lost without you.
I think once again but I still am lost,
I remember the consequence and what this cost.
I try to move on but the feelings still remain,
Nothing can ever be quite the same.
As the dust settles I see what is gone,
My heart find solace in what it does long.
I wonder if any of this has a simple end,
Maybe the answer lies around the next bend.
I toss and turn I can’t sleep at night.
I know what I’ve done and wonder what’s right?
Soon a light appears to guide me through night,
I was hoping for a chance to just set things right.
Still I search for a smile and more grace,
To guide me from here to a place that is safe.
As everything vanishes and fades into gray,
I still find peace in the words that you say.
Once a raging fire,
that burned so long ago,
was reduced to a tiny ember,
that had all but lost its glow.
That mighty fire I thought had died,
that left ashes in my heart,
was brought to life again once more,
from the tiniest of sparks.
All it took was a simple word,
and the fire flared and grew.
Burning as it did before,
with memories of you.
Again that great inferno was born,
from an old familiar voice.
Burning wildly out of control,
without reason, thought, or choice.
Who knew a fire was waiting,
patiently there to grow,
from a tiny little ember,
that had all but lost its glow.
Be happy for you have not witnessed it
The time where Haiti shook and fell
On this paper I transmit
This event worthy to tell
It started like any other day
Everything was calm and nice
Maybe it was nature’s way to repay
Us for our vice
In a split second it begun
Everything was going up and down
No matter what, you couldn’t outrun
This destructive force shaking the town
After a while it ended
The place was filled with dead silence
I was with my siblings that I defended
Saving them from this death sentence
I saw a man running with blood
All over his face, and lost his arm
The rest of his body covered with mud
With an organ sticking out of his underarm
During this catastrophe
I lost a lot of friends, and family members
I would like to destroy that part of my history
But everywhere I go that feeling ember’s
I was unlucky to see the remains
Of what was left in this desert
I had to close my eyes for it pains
Me to see my people trapped under the dirt
Just the thought of writing about it
Makes a bed of tears in my eyes
On that day I was whit
My friend as he lays and dies
For what happened to Haiti
Pray it doesn’t happen to you
This pain will cause you to worry
When they say you’re safe is it true?
It has been many years since his daughter was lost
If he could bring her back he would at all costs
Ever since that day he has wandered and roamed
Turned his back on his family and their loving home
His life on the road left him disheveled and broke
When he thinks back to the past it leaves him in choke
Another day on his lonesome travels
A stranger he meets and their discussions unravel
This old man he has met all mysterious and dark
Told him of times going back as far as the Ark
Tales of the Templar's and Merlin the Magician
After hearing the mans story he began to begin
"I lost my daughter a number of years ago
She drowned whilst on holiday under a still water flow
I couldn't comprehend the loss of her life
The pressure of living, I left my home and my wife"
"What would you do if your girl could be returned
Have you ever wondered if fate could be unearned
If this was possible, would you offer your life
For your daughter to return to her mother your wife"
"Remember, many years have passed her death by
For her past to be relived, there is a reply
Knights of the ages will descend from their dark
They will then strike you down, as you begin your embark"
"My life I have not lived for many a year
For me to lose mine, I gladly volunteer
I will die happy for all eternity
Knowing my daughter will grow old, as it should be"
The old man chants a script of the past
Of an ancient time when fate was cast
The power of they to be able to reverse
To balance their return, they have to reimburse
"Midnight skies will turn to purple cobalt blues
Six Templar Knights will stand and surround you
At your request they will strike you down
On the sixth stroke, you will face your death gown"
"A light will appear of which you'll travel through
But before you do, a young girl runs to you
Your daughter, in pink and red will run from the light
She'll run through your soul, as your sleep starts tonight"
The old mysterious man continues on his way
As he passes a house on a hot Summers day
In the garden there sits, a daughter and mother
Discussing the loss of her father, as they begin to recover
She tells of the day whilst on holiday years ago
My husband your father, lost under a still water flow
As we comprehend the loss of his life
Leaving behind his daughter and wife
Today, it just doesn't seem fair
That we are still able to breathe.
They have given us their air-
Our duty to lead the life they leave.
When life is like blowing with the wind
I lay comatose of the vision that I have seen today
with eyes shut, my heart hurts, visions of a future
and a past that transformed my very soul
a chaotic heart of what might have been
disorganized by trying to grasp holding on for dear life ...
As I daydream to take the view the wind is gently blowing
my life away, as it casts my life into a mold
not knowing where I have seen this life before
I turn the hands of time to remember what might have been
so my soul can soar for the future, but nothing of this life brings to life
memories of forever ...
So, if not of this life time, is the mystery of my histories of you
my past haunts me through every reminiscence we lived
or was it age of innocence that only pretends, to hold us together
to mold us what we are now, with the hurts that display the tears
holds back the soul, to grow and love again ...
Maybe through medieval times or the dark days of renaissance
we lived, an age innocence that didn't last, that told so much about our thoughts, hearts and tears, so if not of this life time, if not for the memories
if not for trusting and pure sweet love, the parting of the wind that gently blow our lives,
Dear Darling, this is the day the wind has blown my life ...
I know you want to appear tough
You want to pull off cool
Being a strong macho man
That’s part of the unspoken rule
I know you act so indifferent
When you see me passing by
But when I happen to turn around
I see raw hunger in your eye
And when I stand close beside you
I hear you inhale my perfume
I can tell it’s so hard for you
Your work to try to resume
And then there is the silence
As you search for words so bland
You try for nonchalance
As you steady your shaking hand
I glow inside as I read
All those little tattle tale signs
You are so intent to hide
That your heart’s already mine
When we all piled up in his car
I had to lean back on your chest
The erratic beat of your heart
Made me know I’d won the test
I recall you opened the door
To let me in to the evening of glee
I wish you could have seen your face
Your eyes were devouring me
You tried to talk to other girls
But your eyes never left my face
You were staking out your claim
Your reactions I could trace
Oh, that sweet surge of power
To know that I could dominate
That I could turn strength to weakness
Because your desires I captivate
I made my way to where you stand
A slow and swaying stride
You looked at me perplexed
When I asked you to go outside
I wondered if they could feel
The burning heat in your stare
If they could see the passion
That in your eyes was laid bare
We stood outside in silence
As we drank in the city lights
The moon and the stars were alive
Lending magic to this night
I had become impatient
To claim sweet victory
When I turned my face to you
I saw you looking down at me
Your craving was unguarded
Your sheer presence made me melt
You took a step much closer
Fate a different hand had dealt
“Is there something the matter?”
Your voice caressed me with concern
I couldn’t find words to answer
I felt my cheeks quickly burn
I knew your pride was wounded
For I once already said, “NO.”
But now you were my obsession
How could I let you know?
With feigned calmness you stood waiting
Self-preservation mode in the way
I frantically clutched at the moment
Not knowing what I could say
It was now or lose you forever
My breath came out in a gasp
“I really want you to…..kiss me
To claim me as yours at last.”
The words were barely out
When your lips closed over mine
You crushed my body gainst yours
Made me lost to the world and time
I tasted pure delirium
My senses all aflame
There was no way to even try
Your flames of passion to tame
But you pulled away one moment
Fighting to regain lost control
I could see pride harden your face
“Do you think I have no soul?
You tortured and you crushed me
Teased me with each toss of your hair
Do you know how long I have waited?
Am I just a toy or some dare?”
My life now hung in the balance
For could I try to make you see
That my heart was now so ready
For your love to set me free
I stood inches from your face
“My love, this you cannot miss”
I kissed you with passion of legions
“Your answer is here in my kiss.”
Sweet reader, I’ll pull the curtain
On all the wonder of that night
One of passion’s greatest triumphs
To rival legends saw the light.
Eileen Manassian Ghali
My night palace is a dark abode,
a mortal passage to salvation.
I play the day just as I'm told,
until night's invitation.
Paternal guidance at night sublime,
dead days are simply props.
But night brings life into it's time,
mine starts when their life stops.
Blood tells all in many ways,
my passenger confides.
Those who think crime truly pays,
wind up as blood-splotched slides.
So murder, greed, and godless souls
stray down that darkened trail.
I'll be there when your bell tolls
and we'll see who goes to hell...
