The Broken Vase Of Love

Is never a crime so earn me awhole. 
For all whose thoughts were crack in noon,
And still do not think is right left being dumb.
would  in prenuptial undertaken blunder, When lifted'd imagined  what the world is of its own. A wistful pan of several host. or A spiteful mine of volcanic blast.

Memories

Thinking back on you and I
It doesn’t seem that long
It’s hard for me believing how
The years have come and gone
Everything about you still
So fresh inside my mind
Precious memories locked away
But never left behind
I shared with you my daytimes
But my nights I spent alone
It tore my heart to know your nights
Were not spent on your own
I knew the risks involved
Because you wore a wedding ring
But I never knew the pain for me
That wedding band would bring
For years my heart was frozen
From a love that it once knew
But I knew my heart had melted
When I fell in love with you
With you and I together
So many things were shared
But most importantly
I never said how much I cared
I tried to hide this love from you
Afraid to let you see
Not knowing of the child we’d made
Growing inside of me
I knew I’d never be with you
I never could have stayed, because
We took away this tiny life
That you and I had made
There’s nothing else you could have done
On you I lay no blame
But now my life feels empty
Full of sadness, loss and shame
I would give my all to spend
Another night with you
For you to hold me in your arms
And say you love me too
But if this never happens
Then I want to tell you still
I loved you then, I love you now
I know I always will...

Gone but

This day seems brighter
as if a smile lights the sky
ever her best boy

Empty Church

The day the earth stood still, 
bells suspended in the tower, 
chimes froze in vacant space, 
nullified the hour. 
Her veil like spider web, 
stiff with Winter frost, 
hung upon the mannequin head, 
poignant and lost. 
His buttonhole carnation, 
a bullet wound lapel, 
blood red with cautious dying, 
in the dresser fell. 
And all the best laid plans 
unravel seam by seam, 
faint echoes in an empty church, 
never more to dream.

This Aint Real

Your face, 
Made a fake smile, (you said)
I love you,
I need you,
I want you just for a while,
You told me,
That I made you smile,
All the things you said to me,
Are just words now,
How can we love,
When you love me for yourself,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus: 2x
What are we doin,
If this love ain't real,
What is this feeling,
That I feel,

I'm broken in emotion,
I'm broken in love, (you said)
I need you,
I want you
You're the only one,
I'm thinkin of, (so tell me)
How can we love, 
When there's always someone else,
(This Aint Love)

Chorus 2x
Bridge:
How can we love,
When there's always someone else,
How can we make up,
When you only love me for yourself,

verse #3:
You got me imprisoned, 
Inside your heart,
When kissed
I felt, Like we,
Would never be apart,
chorus 2x

Reflecting

My white wedding dress
  Now on my eldest daughter
    Twirling in mirror
      I hope in twenty years she
        Won’t be invisible too

The Leaving Bride


I watched her as she walked down the isle
Divine in a dress purely white
To meet with the man she loved
And to pledge him her heart.
I will miss her smile
Her kindly ways
Forever
I am
Lost

Paper Thin

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
For kicks is why I do it now.
You tell me to love but I never knew how.
Our feet hitting pavement,
We spent the day in sunny California with sun kissed skin.
I’m learning to forget and how to fade scars,
And you let me let myself down so hard.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
And now I just do it for smiles,
We’ll never see flower girls stumbling down aisles.
I’d lose my head just before that chance,
But if you want we can still have a first dance.
Cause I think I say things that I don’t mean,
Once upon a time you meant the world to me.

Your paper-thin porcelain skin,
I know how to get right under it.
But I’m trying to refrain,
To make this not all end up in vain.
Maybe I can learn to love like some people do,
And you can learn to love yourself a little too.
Or it is in all fairness to let this go?
I guess we can try but then we’ll never know.

Crazy in love

Another day, another beginning,
I begin the morning chanting,
Hoping that repeating my wish,
It would come true.
 
I sit at the sun-bathed breakfast table,
Remembering the times you sat across with a grumble.
The other times when you would put yours arms around me,
As I set the morning spread.
 
I walk into our memories-filled bedroom,
I remember as I put on your favourite perfume,
The first time you carried me across the threshold,
We were so in love, the newly-wed couple.
 
But I also remember the shadowed memories,
When you would hit me disregarding my pleas.
The times you would turn away in bed,
Refusing to speak to me, pretending to be a statue.
 
I dress in your favourite colours,
And take in a bit of one of your liqueurs.
Hoping it will give me the strength I need,
To face you, my husband, my weakness, the love of my life.
 
I walk out, closing the door behind me,
Wondering in what mood will you be,
I think of the times you'd say you're sorry,
The times you'd say you love me.
 
Times when you'd reach out and touch my cheek,
You'd say you miss me, that you're growing weak.
You want to come back home,
You'd say you're ready that you're okay.
 
I feel my eyes tear up as I think of the worse,
Times when you'd scream yourself hoarse,
When you'd pull my hair and tell me to get out,
Ending up in me running out crying.
 
Yet I come back every day,
For the better days I pray.
Sometimes we would sit staring into each others eyes,
Other times you would act like you don't know me.
 
But I cant help coming back to you,
Returning to the pain no matter what you do.
Sometimes I'm sure this is true love,
Other times i hate you for what you've done to me.
 
On some bad days I swear I'm never coming back,
The days when you hit me blue and black.
On good days I swear I'll never leave you,
The days you whisper sweet things and hold me tight.
 
Nevertheless i come every day,
Hoping everything will soon be okay.
The nurses stare in wonder, they don't understand,
This mad love in the psychiatric ward.

Marriage in a nut shell

I said I do, 
But believe me I don’t
What I meant is I do
But she says hell you won’t
When I said I do 
I didn’t know it meant her way
So I should have said I don’t 
On that so called special day
But if I said I don’t
She would have convinced me I do
I should have ran off that day 
But me legs won’t go my way
Me tongue betrayed me
When it said I do
Just to find out later 
That if I do or won’t or don’t 
"I’m dammed if I do" 
"And I’m dammed I don’t"

Does Family Really Matter Anymore


A family had a wedding...  The brother wasn’t invited.
The fact they didn’t want him,.. 
Was already decided!

When asked why his name had been “omitted.”
It was because of past wrongs he had committed.

The words spoken, one could hardly believe it!
Any kind of forgiveness? 
 They didn’t receive it!

How many times are loved ones not
 invited to “family occasions.”
Often times, families listen to “outside persuasions.”

Someone does something, 
that may not be liked.
Then they’re often told to “go take a hike!

No wonder why many families 
battle one another!
They have failed to truly love each other!

As we continue to see families drift apart.
This often leads to a wounded 
and broken heart!

Christ gave us his best!  
When we were at our lowest!
A life of mercy and forgiveness…  
He wants to show us!

If we can’t treat one another
 as Christ commands…
Then HIS way of family living….  
We’ll never understand!

So Long

We said goodbye two years ago today -
I'll never forget the way I felt that day.
I couldn't breathe when the door closed between us
And your taillights dimmed as you drove away.

I never thought i'd breathe the same again,
As pain took away all my wind -
And i stood there deflated and broken
Refusing to accept the bitter end.

It happened on my best friend's wedding day.
I'll never understand why you did it that way -
I had visions of our wedding as I was standing there
But you ruined that for me and left my heart betrayed.

I never thought i'd get over it, not in a million years.
I cried what seemed a river's worh of tears.
I mourned for you like someone mourns the dead -
It was the realization of all my fears.

But once the salt left my wounds, I realized I was free,
Free from all the emotional torture you gave me.
Free from wondering where you were -
Free from the fragile little girl you made me be.

And I never looked back once you were gone.
I learned how hurt can make you strong,
I learned what a real man should be.
And with that, my old dear lover, so long.

                                         Long love day's has past.
                                 My mind felt with howling storms,
                                 grasping to hold on to vanishing love.
                                 Rape and abandon my weary soul
                                 transpires, poring with instant fires.
                                 Oh this dark secret love does thy life
                                 destroy.
                                 Like amorous birds of pray,
                                 Once ways, and known devoured
                                 Your beauty no more to befound
                                 nor shall the sound of your voice.
                                 Love to dust, love to ashes.
                                 Our love has now gone to a private place.
                                        The grave yard of love.

Done For Good

Her look that day,
Should have told me everything she could not say.
Unprepared, I stared.
She walked away.
As she tossed our ring,
I felt the sting.

If I’d known then
How I feel today,
I'd heal the abscess and my heart’s decay,
Before her affection left me there that day.

May I Sing

In fact I 'said' just to conclude, 
just for a moment to, 'deem the light switch, 
just as flunet as in to 'day and night.

(US)  Daring to take the passion, 
passive as in the night, to kiss on the hand of a palm, 
i played to the fool and rewind asking is that just the spot.

Forward to good sight, blink, 
and forwarding the night, 
and appealing to end it all, 
every gentle scent, 
of scent of good night, 
but wait there is more...

Fear so deep feeling that of distance,
I was in sin! ! ! 
Emotion bearing so close for a solution, 
But wait you are no were near just to say.....

ponding and left loose, 
of a king what should i do but look for clues....

(Her) manifesting tears up a mess up feeling of you, 
that twirl like that dear blue fist of fool of this dudy, 
and ask where was you, 
you of all people should of had knew, 
what was so close to of brand new, 
if you only knew! ! ! 

plaguement of spades emblament me like shades, 
but yet placing me a shame.
as a king the distances of a morning of a evening 
we share such a place.....

(Me)  Signs by paint curve into place, 
envy of a saint but that due tell my place,
of silent end note, pleasure of shoulder, 
wait put it is snowing and like a palm of sand i never put of footing, 
and i could say just "wait"....

Duration of mind mint filling of scented that never could "wait", 
but such blessing kisses is are to awake,
are out of reach.
but what could be more realler of a slow post rain dropp of you 
and sitting next, next of thinking of you! ! ! 

(US)  
Saying, Knowing, What should been of us. 
Thinking now I just want sing. just to sing! ! ! 
AND OF WHAT MEALODYS, 
ASKING MY Self,
MAY I SING! ! ! !

I Do or Do I

We went to a Chinese restaurant, but couldn’t get a seat
The waiter found us a table, and said we were in for a treat.
A wedding party was booked, he said, we would join them
We decided to say  yes, sat down and waited and then…

The waiters rushed out, the bride arrived, resplendent in a gown of white
A creation that was gorgeous, her tattooed shoulders caught the light
No groom was there by her side, just a pageboy and three bridesmaids
The page a little boy of five suddenly on his way he got waylaid…

A tank of fish by the door, amused the bored little boy
Especially when he threw his car in, it was his ‘must behave toy.’
The best man arrived; he saw the bride, he whispered in her studded ear
She banged the table with her fist, there was no doubt we all could hear.,,

"The ‘bast*** I am sick of him, and you are the one to blame
You should have stopped him getting drunk, god why did I take his name?
Get the kids off the floor, get that car out of the tank of fish?
When their father gets here, get them to bring the Chop Suey wedding dish…"

The groom arrived looking abashed, his tie slung over his shoulder
“Get these bloody kids controlled or they’ll not get very much older.”
The bride jumped up and raised her dress, not only her garter did we see
She raised her dainty black jack boot, and kicked him in the knee…

"They are your bloody kids you know, and if you don’t control them soon 
I’m telling you right now- we are not going on our honeymoon."
By this time all of us began to thank, the waiters for finding us a seat
They had not been wrong when they told us, we were in for a wonderful treat...

Tell me

Are we meant to be?
Or is it just a dream?
You & I
Are we meant for love?
Are we ready to say I do?
You & I
I'm just not sure If I'm ready.
Are we ready to say I do?
Or say good-bye?
You & I
I'm just not sure whether to go back?
Or keep marching forward?
Without you
Don't know whether these are my directions.
Give me time to think.
If you can't wait, move on.
Just you.
Know I can't be without you.

My dream wedding day

Looking at the first blush of the morning,
I know its the perfect day for a wedding.
The big fat white wedding, the dream,
To which every little girl clings.
 
I tell myself as I watch the clouds turn white,
That this is the happiest day of a woman's life,
And that nothing should come in between,
The perfect bride and her groom.
 
I remember those young moments when I used to dream,
Of how our wedding would seem.
It was just like I had imagined,
A pretty day like today.
 
Slipping into my white dress and stilettos,
I think of the way you had proposed.
The way I had always wished for,
A dazzling ring in sparkling champagne.
 
I switch to happier thoughts from our past,
Holding hands, watching stars, laying on the grass.
We were high school sweethearts,
The perfect couple was what they called us.
 
We spent our days sneaking in a few kisses,
We used to pretend to be Mister and Mistress.
We were in love,
The crazy, eternal and rare kind.
 
Memories are shoved as mother comes into the room,
Holding a few red roses in full bloom.
Her eyes are teary and her voice is shaky,
As she whispers that she is proud of me.
 
Tears spill but I smile as I slide into the car,
Remembering the times you'd sing to me with your guitar.
The times you'd reach over and,
Tuck a stray lock of hair behind my ear.
 
I laugh silently as I remember on the way to the chapel,
You saying once you were the beast and I, the belle.
You  always bring little candles and gifts,
And laugh as I make my birthday wish.
 
I wonder if you'd be laughing today,
As you cut the wedding cake with the sugar bouquet.
If you'd remember our old ceremonies,
In the event of your new one.
 
I walk through the gates smiling at our old friends,
And take your brother's hand as his arm extends.
He takes me in but lets me go,
As we reach the door to the flowery hall.
 
I peek through the crack to see you there,
At the altar smiling, running a hand through your hair.
I slip in and move to the side,
As the wedding march starts to play.
 
In came the blushing bride, walking gracefully down the aisle,
At her friends and family, she nods and smiles.
As I hold my breath and wipe my eyes,
Our high school love story plays in my head. 
 
I remember the day we promised we'd never part,
Because I would always be the one in your heart.
But your bride and you exchange your vows,
And I find myself repeating them inside.
 
The priest asks you to kiss your bride,
And I quickly slip outside.
Because no matter how alright I say I am,
Letting you go was the hardest thing I had ever done.

The Darkness at Noon

Joy, gaiety and jubilation,
Party, merrymaking and celebration.
It was a remarkable day of Reena’s life;
Within hours she would be her lover’s wife.
Dressed in exquisite Indian wedding outfit,
With complimenting gold jewelry
An adjunct to her beauty.
She felt like royalty,
Adorned with lavish embroidery.
Preparing herself to embark on the start of a new life,
Just when she realized that life is a boon;
Hit by a catastrophic tragedy, 
Inundated darkness at noon.

The bright light and lark,
Turned into pitch dark.
Dismay and despair,
Her fiancé is no more.
Showers of tears,
Silence deafening to ears,
Over the years,
Only murkiness and gloom,
No flowers to bloom.
This is the truth of life,
It does shows its true color,
Once in a blue moon,
And brings darkness at noon.

A Bride's Confession

Little did you know, I was falling for you.
Torn and confused, I don’t know what to do.
Given that I am about to be wed,
Sooner or later, this feeling should end.

This invisible love may not be known,
But I know through my deeds, t’was already shown.
Seeming to beat like it has its own mind,
My heart doesn’t want to leave you behind.

I would always cherish your smile and your face;
I would always long for your warm embrace.
Indeed by tomorrow, I will be his,
But you will remain to be my bliss.

As I Walk Down The Aisle

We were happy;
were we not?
We were lucky;
have everything we got.

It was us;
you and me.
We were nothing,
but meant to be.

All was perfect,
yet tell me why?
Why am I walking down the aisle,
and the one at the end isn`t you?

At the side you stood, 
smiling at me.
My tears were ruining the festive mood,
Is this how you ought to be?

Can`t you take me away?
Why,  for my happiness, you pray? 
When you know I will never be,
without you with me.

My heart is killing  me inside,
I walk to the end,
he takes my side
we take our vows.

And this is where it ends,
I`ll be apart from you
I can`t imagine life
without you

But what I hate the most
is not that I belong to someone else,
but your heart,
you will give to another lady.

I walk out with him 
faking a smile
thinking I`ll be alright
when I see you again

I rode the car
he clutched my hand
I see you through the mirror
with a girl by your side.

I felt I could die.

Remember

“I can’t remember you, but you are pretty,” said the old man Tears formed in the eyes of the woman "Who are you?" His voice was the grayest of blues "Are you my new doctor? Or perhaps a nurse?" Silently, the woman took something out from her purse The photo was a wedding shot of a young pair His smile was dimpled and wide, and she had curly hair The woman handed the photo to the old man Setting it on his shaky hand He stared at it long and hard, trying to remember He looked at the date in the back—the 13th of December He looked at the woman in sudden surprise “Marianne!” He cried with joy. “Of course, my wife!” She left the room without another word That was the name of his first wife—and she was merely the third

You THINK?

You think you might be in love.

You think he/her might be in love with you.

You think about a lot of things. Do you really know those things?

You think a lot, you worry a lot. 

But do you really HAVE to think or worry about those things?
  Or do you WAN'T to think or worry about those things?

Now that there is something to think about.

Forgive, please forget

I lie here looking at the ceiling,
Then I look to your word,
It didn't have much meaning, 
Trusting you is almost absurd
You left me broken promises
I know I'm better off
No more kisses
I need to write you off
I'm a creature of habit
I  know I'm not that tough
I have no heart to be compassionate
You stole it, left it in the rough
I'm Forgetting how your voice sounds
It truly makes me sad
yet still want you around
I still know what we had 
Why'd did you ever leave? 
Why couldn't we have been enough for you?
Now you wallow in sorrow and tell me how you grieve
love isn't for the weak I give the devil his due 
Now you suffer twisting, contorted pain
the worst mistake of your life
takes me back to lovers lane
You really messed up and I'm to alleviate you of your strife?
You think you deserve it?
….
…..
…...
…....
…..I do.

My sister has courted Death

Lush, green meadows beyond punctured skies,
Balloons of every shape and size,
Golden hues masked by glory,
Suppose the people have no worry.

Dashing across the wooden floorboards,
Children giggle and swing their swords,
Imaginations that drive them wild,
How I wish I were still a child.

An ease about my sister's face,
The maidens prepare to tie the lace,
I suck my breath; I hold it in,
My wedding dress makes me thin.

Buxom priestess with wary eyes,
She eyes Death and speaks true lies,
Death doesn't focus, for she is healthy,
Despite the fact she's born too wealthy. 

Oblivious cheers the crowd does act, 
When Death kisses me, my eyes go flat,
Soul born into the world and soul taken away,
I was a stranger since my first day.

My sister's eyes I catch with mine,
Wordless gaze, mute goodbye,
She speaks to me with a hushed breath,
'My sister has courted Death.'

And so I have.

A Circle of Promises

Resting upon my outstretched hand
lies what was once
a circle of promises never ending
given as a symbol of love
spoken and unspoken
now just a circle of heartache(s)
this too never ending...
or so it seems.
Two people,
once possessed of this band
vowed for eternity
to travel together as one
a promise soon broken
rendering forever
one again into two.
That which long ago radiated
a warmth felt only
by those it encircled
its luster now dulled by time
lies cold upon my hand
with only my memories 
to hold it there.
I wrap it once more 
within tissue yellowed by time
and return it to my box
of gone but not forgotten memories.

ADDICTED TO YOU by Collice Rodrigues

I wish to breathe my last breath in your arms

You’re the one to kill me with your charms

Everybody coaxed me to avoid you but no

You’re that someone who I just can’t let go

 

This world is cruel it has always made me cry

You take me to heaven and teach me to fly

You taught me how to deal with my pain

Without you barren would my life remain

 

You take me to a different world as I hallucinate

And all the pleasures of life you begin to recreate

I’m losing my senses someone tell me who am I

I know I need you but I don’t know why

 

Your absence makes me restless it’s you I need

I am an addict and you are marijuana my weed

I got addicted to you that I intentionally chose

Now that I’m addicted I don’t mind an overdose

LIFE SEEMS TOUGH

               My Life seems tough
               When it becomes a bluff,
               Who makes it, IS a point
               Where to shuffle & where a problem lies

 
               No one else can make it complex 
               When  me myself  is perplex
               I think, Is it less Money which is the 
               major Pest ?
                            Or
               My life is not coming to the best.

 
              Thought & thought , then got a result
              It's my loneliness which is causing a whole mess
              Aloof and sad, less money is also a fact,
              No money, No friends, no Support-is what I lack
 
              Money drags the crowd, 
              but friends are still not found,
              I fastened my belt,to fetch a new Pan,
              Where my life is no more lonely

              And I found a new ban
              What a sigh of relief--
              I got a friend who proposed me for a wedding ban

              Happy now I am with a partner in my van
              Life No more sucks and Life no more seems TOUGH!!!!!

Disillusioned

We pledged our vows before God and man,
But to have and to control was your only plan.
you wanted a mother certainly not a wife ,
Your verbal abuse nearly destroyed my life.
You wanted to be a father but only in name ,
This was all part of your devious game.
An uncaring parent that's what you were ,
Blood is thicker than water don't you know?
Whenever you sow your seeds,
You nuture them and ensure that they grow.
Marriage is not a fairy tale,
Where dreams just come true,
It's a lot of hard work and committment  
you have to put in too.
So ponder on that before you answer the Lord,
Because as you know, he'ii always detect a fraud.

Unconventional Bride

From a distance, she sees
the groom in sweat;
moist with tears,
his lips tremble.
At the pace of voices,
she marches;
line of gazes: her path.

The contrast of white
against red;
petals are swept
by her trail.
Behind the lace
she gets a glimpse 
of tomorrow
and yesterday.

She kisses her mother, who smiles;
as well as her father, who cries.
Then she reaches the arms
of the man:
august in coat and tie.

Together, they walk the road
made of velvet and wilted rose:
This day, they may be them,
but later, they will be one.

This moment, though, 
makes her break;
and mourn like facing death,
for the image of bells and doves

is a mere illusion in her mind.

Today, the coil will be worn,
though not by the lady
in this poem.
For she is the one
in the weathered bench
sitting together
with the wedding guests.

Blinded on My Wedding Day

Convince that you are the one for me.

Persuaded that I am the one you need.

Deceived that you desire my love.

Refused to see the truth so I wait.

Believing that your heart is not filled with hate.

I cry for my Heart that I am not confused.

Praying to God that I am not just being used.

Blinded by the, Yes I will marry you!

Consumed by the, Will you marry me?

Walking down the aisle to meet my groom, didn't realize it was the day of my doom! 

Oh! What can I say. Blinded on My wedding Day.

Blind Love

The romance between them female and male,
From her dying inside from all the pain.
Their love like a moon shining oh so pale, 
And them thinking they were going insane.

From the late nights of fighting and crying,
To the dates that went wrong in both their ways.
They both found out of each others lying,
And cheating that took place the past few days.

Punching and kicking, being tossed around,
The bruises, the blood, the black-and-blue eyes. 
She shouts and screams when she falls to the ground,
The neighbors don't help when they hear her cries.

But on the wedding day nothing is said,
And the truth came out when they found her dead.

Setting up House

I met a woman, fell in love
She was a gift from above
Soon she became my spouse
We gathered things and set up house.

Some things were new without a flaw
Some were hand me downs from Ma and Paw
For some we saved nickels in a can
Some were bought on the installment plan.

Children came – a total of four
Two boys – two girls- no need for more
We managed to provide room and board
Did the best we could afford.

We moved around from house to house
On an adventure – me and my spouse
Gathering things to which we would cling
But we rarely got rid of anything.

Tables, chairs, couches, and beds
Cabinets and shelves taller than our heads
Mugs, pictures, and bells we did collect
Mementoes and heirlooms on which to reflect.

A man gathers a lot in over fifty years
And remembers many of them with tears
Many a thing still fills my house
But it’s not a home without my spouse.

She has a room in a retirement home
Care is provided and she cannot roam
I dreamed one day we would be old timers
But I never figured on Alzheimer’s.

Now I have a house full of stuff
Too many things - more than enough
The time has come to downsize
To an apartment in the high rise.

My children came one by one
Went through my stuff until they were done
One takes this and another takes that
And managed to do so without a spat.

Giving things away is a lonely task
My irritability I cannot mask
Gathering things with my spouse
Was more fun than cleaning out house.

The Sordid Affair

There's money___then there's love
Looking back at him __desiring 
Brief encounters above
Husband's comments deriding

So handsome fire__home ice
Guilt, shame, remorse____desire
One last glimpse maybe twice
Marriage but children__can't transpire

Inner turmoil__wishing
Should I walk away now
Turn turn around running
We'll say the wedding's vow

The broken fairytale

Once upon a time there lived,
A beautiful girl and a man she loved.
So true was such their love,
There wasn't anyone who disapproved.
 
It had been love at first sight,
A fairy tale since that day.
The maiden had found the man of her dreams,
No one else needed to have a say.
 
They had done it all,
Candlelight dinners, shyly holding hands,
Kissing in the rain, dancing around trees,
Leaving intertwined footprints on white sands.
 
But it wasn't just another love story,
It was uniquely special like every other one.
They had eyes for no other but one another,
The best part of their lives had just begun.
 
They traveled around the world,
And she kissed her man at the seven wonders each.
People would smile at the storybook couple,
As they counted stars standing on a beach.
 
With her, he was the man he wished to be,
The one who wouldn't think twice,
About pulling her up to dance in a crowded train,
He'd protect her, keep her happy at any price.
 
He'd see through her weak smile,
All the way to the tears inside,
He'd whisper sweet things in her ear,
Hold her till all the tears dried.
 
Though they did have a fair share of problems,
They always came together again,
No matter what happened,
Like raindrops on a window pane.
 
On a rainy day, she had sat waiting,
Wondering about the surprise he had promised,
But he never came,
For the winds of fate had suddenly changed. 
 
Five years after that day, she found herself alone,
Sitting on the porch, counting stars on her own,
As she recalled the day he had been taken from her,
'An unfortunate accident' on the next the papers had shown.
 
She hadn't cried on the phone, she hadn't cried on the way,
She didn't even cry when she had to identify him,
Not a single tear or a heartrending sob.
She just stared ahead with an expression so grim.
 
It was only when she had received his belongings,
The remnants of his last minutes, did she react.
She screamt and cried, laughed and wailed,
For among others, was a diamond ring beautifully packed.
 
His surprise, the laughter in his voice,
The excitement, the secrecy of the evening.
He had been right, it had left her breathless,
But he wasn't there to see the sorrow it did bring.
 
Even now her eyes brimmed with tears,
As she looked at the ring as it sparkled,
And thought of that time when there lived,
A beautiful girl and a man she loved.

In Sickness and In Silence

Endless masquerade I despise 
No longer am I able to tolerate this feigned smile 
Struggling to hide this inferno of contempt in a guise.
 
Oh Please, I do not wish for you to sympathize 
This is why I must go this extra draining mile 
Endless masquerade I despise.
 
A silent scream from inside is my well-earned prize
For these surrounding cherished faces are oblivious all the while
Struggling to hide this inferno of contempt in a guise.
 
But will this heavy stone lodged in my throat lead to a forgotten demise?
As I madly crawl down this heavily perfumed white rose colored aisle
Endless masquerade I despise.
 
Now I stand seemingly faithful to the stranger beside me and recognize
A hint of despair in his own strained smile
Struggling to hide an inferno of contempt in a guise.
 
Oh deadly facade of happiness we must both advertise 
The act of mutual deception is certainly vile
Endless masquerade I despise
Struggling to hide this inferno of contempt in a guise.

I'll Always be Your Fool

I'll Always be Your Fool

I wish you were just an ex
Your wicked spell has me hexed,
Thinking I could get over you,
Damn I was such a fool

Ill never know how to get over you
I'm always going to be your fool..

I was all good until June,
Then my heart started craving food,
Just doesn't seem quite right,
Something isn't filling my appetite,

Ill never know how to get over you
I'm always going to be your fool..

Hit me like a brick,
My dad, the ultimate dick,
We haven't spoken in years,
You still brings me to tears,

Ill never know how to get over you
I'm always going to be your fool..

You should be here for this,
You cross my mind I get pissed,
Wish I could tuck these feelings,
Its all part of the healing,

Ill never know how to get over you
I'm always going to be your fool..

Whether its a wedding, 
New kid,
Something I've accomplished,
Or wish I did
I'd love to share it with you,
You'll never apologize,
So I'll just have to improvise
Don't think any amount of time will heal,
Gotta get a grip and learn to deal.

The Corner

Today my heart is broken,
from what it used to be
All I ever wanted,
was your arms holding me
Today this tortured pain,
is all that's left of you
And wiping these tears away,
is all that's left to do

Now I lay staring at the ceiling,
wondering what went wrong
Feeling pain and emptiness,
where your arms belong
Wonder if I can keep going on,
without your gentle touch
Wonder if this rain will stop,
for I never asked for much

Over in the corner,
still lies your wedding band
Shining in the light,
from where it left your hand
and on the stand still sits your picture,
in it's golden frame
With that smile upon your face,
calling out my name

I wonder if you'd come back,
if our lives would have to change
For the song we used to dance to,
doesn't sound the same
And forevers now just a word
that seems to make me cry
And my heart can't take the break,
of another sad goodbye

Over in the corner,
still lies your wedding band
Shining in the light,
from where it left your hand
And on the stand still sits your picture,
in it's golden frame
With that smile upon your face,
calling out my name

MISLED

You promised me
That you'd change,
Which you did
For a little while.
For three months
You were a dream,
Filled me with happiness,
And my days with a smile.

But sadly, it didn't last,
Slowly, it's fading away.
Please don't tell me
It's going back to the same.
I truly believed in you,
So proud of the person
I honestly had thought
You had truly became.

Eight years together,
Loving and caring for you.
Giving you my life
With my heart and soul,
Through the hurt and tears,
Many hugs and kisses,
Believing we're a team
Headed towards the same goal.

To be married was always
The future plan.
Committing to one another;
Uniting as husband and wife.
Signifying that final bond
With rings on our finger;
That for "better, for worse",
Together, the rest of our life.

We've invested too much
Of our time and ourselves.
Our days full of memories,
Impossible to just forget.
Are you really willing
To let this pass on by,
Only to wake up one day
With deep sorrow and regret?

Can you throw me away
And cause me such pain,
Leaving permanent scars behind,
A constant reminder of you?
Letting go of the only one
That ever gave a damn,
Who loved you the most
And never gave up on you?

Is it worth the fee,
The price you'll pay?
What will it
Have actually cost,
Your true love,
Your forever love;
Our life together
Will have been lost.

Happiness is what we deserve,
And we both can have.
Beside you as your wife
I know is where I belong.
Will you ever marry me?
Will I ever see my Wedding day?
Are you finally to commit,]
Or just stringing me along?

I hope your answer
Is the right one,
Because the signals you're sending
Are so unclear and confusing me.
So, be the strong man
I know you can be,
Everything I truly believe
A GOOD man to be!

My Lonely Soul

You made me see who you really are,
and the worst one so far.
But I leave this world cold and lonely,
I have these five words for you only.
I hate you forever now,
and that is all that matters anyhow.
Why did you leave me unhappy and depressed,
and I bet you knew all the rest.
Dont worry and trust me for what Im about to say,
my soul is here to haunt you and its here to stay.
You can run but you cant  hide,
from your lonely souled bride who died.

A White Rose in the Dark of Night

Silence as the days go by
A world were kindness is no more
But one maiden He could adore
So pure as not able to lie
She could sing as thou no voice could be heard
As He would describe Her as a white rose in the night
So gentle yet fierce to fight
She always stirred 
So softly as thou someone was always looking at Her
Mighty as He could be
But all She could see
Was love and despair?
Yet She cared so slightly for her thoughts
Nor He was sound with thoughts of love
Messages were sent on a snow-white dove
To share the fait of harmony
Yet interference was strong
A snake some might day
And when she would stray
There was a terrible song
But brave as a lion be
Brought Her back
Yet once more interference would attack
But win no less
Days of happiness would go by
And tunes of sorrow would disappear
Yet She felt rain upon her eyes
And He brought sun light to Her sight
Wishing She could dance till midnight
Telling Her to carry on
And say no more till dawn
Yet time was at its might
He wanted Her to whisk away
And listen to the loud crashing bells
Hopefully no one tells
The secrets He has told this day
Horses riding to the shore
Only two
Me and You
Smell the flowers strong and mild
Beauty as She is
But She could only see Her faults
He wished She lived in happiness
Moons and suns would change
And stars would gain and loose
And planets would rearrange 
Because love was found and lost
The day He slept silently
A Dragon awakened angrily
But She had slept restlessly 
The Dragon stepped so harshly
Awakened Her up
And felt fire as hot as the sun
She felt the need to run
But bravely stopped to look upon Him
But the Dragon grabbed Her with his claws
He stood tall with a powerful strength
He grabbed his sword at length
And fought the Dragon for His White Rose
She was sound not scared at all
He slashed up and got a hit
It created a large slit
And the Dragon fell
She clasped in his claws
He managed to release Her
They walked away in joyful steppes
Looking back at the dreadful sight 
Rebels came to stare away
Drained the blood of the Dragon
And when they were done
They walked away
With happy faces
She felt hurt for He was wounded 
He felt strengthened for She was saved

In Name Only


She said I do.
She did not want to,
But now it is too late.
A ceremony,
A ring, a signed contract
And witnesses congregate.

She has his name;
He has not her heart.
They sealed it with a kiss.
He's hateful and mean.
She's a beautiful queen
Who suffered long with this.

She found someone
That loves her heart,
And she also loves him.
But they have children,
And both are married.
This comes between them.

She's in shackles;
He's in chains,
They struggle to be free.
Their bond so strong
Can't be explained away
Like a tossing sea.

They've built a house
Where they wait to live
No matter how long it takes.
She has his heart
But not his name;
For this moment he aches.

Just Wont Happen

Went months going all over town,
Finally found the perfect gown,
But when I looked in the mirror,
Compared to dreams, 
My reality feels inferior,

You should be near..
For me to endear,
Your stubborn attitude arrests your emotions,
Reality you'll never apologize sinks deep in the big blue ocean,

Fiance found his suit,
I stare and smile, looks so damn cute!
I want to call and share this with you,
But with you I have nothing to do,

You should be near..
For me to endear,
Your stubborn attitude arrests your emotions,
Reality you'll never apologize sinks deep in the big blue ocean,

Collecting addresses from family,
Invitations are near ready,
Seems to be happening so quickly,
There's a damn of tears compiling rapidly,

I feared this a long time,
Couldn't put my finger on the dime,
This is the hardest thing I've had to do,
Plan my wedding without you

Honestly Im surprised,
Thought once you'd hear I was engaged you'd try,
Call me to talk, or show up at my house,
Your heart and mind are in a constant joust,
Hoped dearly that we'd reconnect,
So you could help me plan the perfect event,
Just wont happen..........

My biggest fear I have to overcome,
I can think about it all I want,
But when all is said and done,
Trying to stay true to what I feel is right,
Not sure how, but I refuse to let it ruin my special night.

Compeyson

We were perfect together
Inseparable
Night and day
Two blackened petals of the amaranth
Wizened, rotted, but eternal

A white angel, a waxwork skeleton
Gliding up the road
Towards the wedding knell
And by the altar 
Before the eyes of God
A letter, with your scrawled apology across it.

Rushing to the phone now
Dialling your number with spinster’s fingers
I cry
Don’t leave me

“The number you are calling no longer exists”

Then I remember
You faded long ago
The dress has yellowed
The clocks have stopped
The feast has rotted

I’m talking to myself.

The Case Against The Moon

She held the case against the moon
in bubbled glasses sea green hewn
and whispered nothings to the fish
her sea fins swishing at her wish
"The case against the moon", she said,
"began the day that I was wed
and on that day the tide pulled back
to swirling waves to ships attack
It 'twas this day my love embarked
a voyage to sustain my heart
while I a lowly mermaid be
he came to set my spirit free...
His ship was bitten by the wind
a low and moaning hull of tin
His eyes of coal to be immersed
while I searched for my wedding purse
Pearls from oysters for my crown
and seaweed stitched a wedding gown
His laugh and all his love did die
and, on my fins, I know not why
And so bold moon, I challenge you
to bring the worst that you can do
and I will fight with all my will
until the tides return to still."
The passive moon, it heaved a sigh
and tides began to do or die
while waves in turmoil turned to swell
the fish turned too, and wished her well.
She threw her glasses to the sea
and dove to indigo caves once free
to tether nets of liquid ore
to quell the moon forever more
On flying fish she pulled her nets
beyond the sun's impartial sets
to catch the moon and hurl her down
a luminous splash, and then no sound
The earth went dark, the sea went cold
all mermaids there went grey and old
The sea floor shook at the moon's embrace
in a glowing ripple of pure disgrace
Still in the sky in purple wind
the mermaid whispered: "I have sinned"
She shed a thousand briny tears
and flew the skies with grief and fears
'till deciding at last what she should do
She set a course to save the moon.
She dove to the bottom of a sea of light
and what she saw was quite a sight
The broken pieces in scattered glow
This wasn't the moon she used to know
So gently, with fins and liquid lips
she balanced a shard on her mermaid hips
and flew to the ink, to the sky of sorrow
with a sadness of what would be brought the morrow
The sliver she placed in the sky that night
became the "new moon" to dimly light
the ocean each month to gently grieve
it's ships and it's mermaids to long bereave.

Where Do We Go From Here?

We don't mesh
Since we've been one flesh
We're never on good terms for long
As a matter of fact
One misheard word or act
Makes us conclude everything's wrong

And we don't click
Like the stones and sticks
That we've gathered from far and near
They've all been used
Now that we're battered and bruised
Where do we go from here...?

Why do we settle down
To settle for less or save face
By not waiting for true happiness?
Why do we put on a show
And act funny with each other,
Yet neither of us is laughing yet?

And why do we get confident
Seeing our strength and beauty,
Finally, from the words of a stranger?
And why do we stay together
While pushing ourselves apart?
Without mutual love we're in danger.

(Excerpts from the song Where Do We Go From Here?)

Slow Dance

"I'll never stop loving you"
That's what he said
The day we were wed
It lasted for a year or two
Until he said we're through
He still comes around 
But between us, not even a sound
I don't know what happened or why
But everyday I cry
We are still married
Even though the feelings are buried
We stay together for the kids
Although common sense forbids
I still love him very much
And I long for his touch
I can see in his eyes
That he too cries
I can see he still loves me
I remember the day he got on one knee
It's thoughts like these
That make me want to say please
Please, I beg with all my heart
I can't stand to be apart
I ask you to come back into my life
So I can again be your wife.

The Wedding

Yes I've made some bad decisions

Taken a few wrong turns.

I've even lived to regret

Most of the bridges I've burned.


But of all the things I should have done

That I didn't do.

The one that I regret the most

Is not saying, I love you.


Now your in the arms of another.

I guess you'll never know.

All the dreams I had for us

Or how I loved you so.


I'll regret it till my dying day

The things that might have been.

I wish I had the chance to tell you now

What I couldn't tell you then.


As yours standing there, so beautiful

In a stunning gown of white.

The minister just told the crowd

I pronounce you man and wife.

Keepsake

A portrait of a future young bride
Stand with absolute pride
On my bedside table,
That I was really able
To cherish it for so long;
And I felt sad as I hear her song
Time and time again;
I don’t understand, beyond my ken
Why do I have to keep it, still?
I am not a keeper of a seal, 
Nor I had been? For loyalty was betrayed;
Around the edges, thought is getting frayed
Whether, I’ll let the keepsake to remain
Adoring me, as I sleep in pain!

The Rainey Day

Drip, Drop, Drip, Drop

It is time, time for the rain to plop
It is here, here to make the day go by
Slowly, Slowly in the distance I hear the rumbling of clouds 
I see the darkness of night
I see the moon peep through the shadowily smoke 
And then the sky seems to fall
Pouring crazily toward the ground

Drip, Drop, Drip, Drop

outside the window I see 
the needless needles cradle through the atmosphere
As i mope inside the dark house i still say
Oh how i hate The Rainey Day

All We Could Find

In the sand, in a foreign land,
They found a hand, when the smoke had cleared.
In the sand,
They boxed up the hand, shipped it home to her.
The words on the box, written there in red.
..........All we could find.

Alone tonight, she turned out the light,
She held his photograph, remembering the things she feared.
Alone tonight,
Every dream she had, every memory sad.
When she read those words, written there in red,
..........All we could find.

In the sand, in a foreign land,
His wedding band, was blown from his hand.
Her wedding band,
She placed in the box, wrapped in her tears.
As she traced those words, written there in red,
..........All we could find.

Her tears ran, into her lonely hand,
She lost her man, there in the photograph.
Her tears ran,
Her love was gone, her heart was torn.
As she remembered those words, written there in red,
..........All we could find.

Three Words I Long To Know

My confidence is insecure. It is dreadfully low
There are three words that I long to know.
The answer determines if I stay or if I go.
Don’t want to rush. Take your time. Go slow.

My heart beats whenever I hear your name.
You are my life, my love’s one and only flame.
I can only hope that one day, you’ll feel the same.
Your feelings are silenced. I’m going insane.

You’re so complex. Sometimes you’re a mystery.
You said you wanted to spend your life with me.
What ‘s missing? Is there something I don’t see?
I cannot unlock that door, only you hold the key.

You’re my significant other. You’re all that I speak of.
We’re a great deal alike. We resemble hand to glove.
You’re the only man that I’ll ever want to love.
The answer I’ll wait. I’ll not push nor will I shove.

I’ll fade to the background. My love for you is known.
My hearts awfully restless. My soul is so alone.
Each and every passing day; my love for you grows.
My love there are three words that I long to know.

THE WEDDING

I see the guest dressed in there best 
Oh how I wish that they could see the truth 
As I walk down the aisle, 
I see the frown of the man that 
Says he loves me. 
With tears running down my eyes 
I can't deny that I share that same frown 
But it's inside my heart 
Can he see, do they know? 
Should I head for the door? 
What should I do, what should I say? 
Will this feeling ever go away? 
As he looks into my eyes, I feel butterflies 
The pastor says, are you ok? 
I say, yes let's be on our way 
He takes my hand, and says 
Do you understand that, I'm not your man 
I can't say I do, cause, I never loved you
