Destined

A dragon's scale reflects the rounds of time
her heart, the subtle beat of love sublime
a secret kept in smoke and ancient bones-
a tale best told in whispered lines of rhyme.

She flies the crystal skies in silent tones
a burning hope of love is all she owns
forgotten visions lost in endless tales
and buried deep beneath the cobbled stones.

Remaining true beyond the mystic vales
her longing for soul's kinship never pales
though crushing eras weigh upon her name,
her eyes still scan the blue where hope still sails.

The day will dawn when once again her flame
will blaze along the sky and one will tame
rebellious spirit, and her heart reclaim
from solitude's dark grasp to light's domain.

I Need Your Help Daddy

I’m tired
I’m Physically and Emotionally tired
I don’t want to be the strong one anymore
I can’t this time
I don’t know what to do Daddy
I need your help down here

I can’t get back in control of my emotions 
I’m having a hard time dealing with your absence
I’m having a hard time standing by myself
I need your help Daddy

I’m broken and lost without you Daddy
I need your will to want to carry on
I need your strength to over come this
I need your strength to stay standing
Your courage to fight back again
I need your help 

Please Daddy I’m at a loss
How am I suppose to do this
I need your guidance 
I need you to guide me back
To whom I was before
I need your help Daddy
I need your help

Sometimes in relationships

Sometimes in relationships our love defeats our lust, but sometimes not;
Sometimes in relationships our peace is kept by trust, but sometimes not.

Sometimes in relationships we, each to each, are hurt and held and healed;
Sometimes in relationships we share our heart and mind, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are lost lovers, our lives blaze with brighter bursts of passion;
Sometimes we are best friends, we balance with compassion, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are up-in-arms night and day, our battles are fought and won;
Sometimes we are at-loose-ends and struggle to be one, but sometimes not.

Sometimes we are with others, together we entertain family;
Sometimes we are you and me; two is good company, but sometimes not.

My Love for You Remained

My Love for You Remained

What torment is there greater than love so feigned?
For despite great pain, my love for you remained.

Thy passions, ignoring dreams, lust sought and claimed.
Crying, all the while, my love for you remained.

Dry promises, from your lips, enslaved my brain.
My heart clung to hope; my love for you remained.

Although thoughts void of hope endured great pain.
As joys slipped away, my love for you remained.

Secret lovers revealed that our love lie stained.
Contrived excuses, my love for you remained.

Friends told me that believing you was inane.
But without complaint, my love for you remained.

Lust, like a lion flaunting his mane… ingrained.
Wishes not yet won, my love for you remained.

Mockery, criticism and anger reigned.
Desertion came; and my love for you remained.

Adoration ended as my heart maintained.  
Defeat proclaimed.  But my love for you remained.

Desiring

Such beauty set before these eyes, longing for closure of the desire of my 
being. My skin aches for your touch, gentle and tender; desiring.

Lost as a warrior's bullet seeking a victim; lost as a comic without an audience on 
opening night. My heart wants and needs like cherry red hot fire and desirer, desiring.

Your piercing eyes draw me though there is no heart beating in your hollow chest!
Exploding mines won't destroy this longing; it will follow me postmortem; dire desiring.

The bat of your lashes is stronger than a savage warrior, whose blows end a feeble 
life. No tenderness; you break all lives like Medusa turns men to stone;liar, desiring.

Drifting away on solitude, alone tonight and you are cozy by the fire, full with no 
regrets. A dagger penetrates deep in my lungs taking the air away; danger, desiring.

I Must Go

---inspired by a story character of mine
------------------------------------------------------------------
Losing reality, losing my mind I try to stay with you but I'm falling behind This fate's going nowhere I'm left hurting inside Tomorrow's not coming What are you becoming Nothing is out there Pain and suffering forthcoming Nowhere to hide, I'm on my own Feeling so empty and alone Your hatred shines bright Your heart, a deadened stone This pain you inflict upon me Hurts greater than I'll ever let you see But still I love you so Though I know you can-will never love me I just hope you know That even though the love I want from you will never be so I'll always love you But now, before it hurts anymore, I must go...

Words Whisperer

You’ve swallowed my misery, 
My old self, just by a smile;
By letting me feel the mountains move, 
You’ve freed me, just by a smile;
My twisted thoughts,
Have been untangled by you, with just a smile;
I offer my body and soul to you, O my words whisperer,
You’ve whispered me a new life, just by a smile;
I offer myself to you O, Jamlaila,
You’ve made me your man, just by a smile.

We Lost More Than a Dad

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost half of how we came to be
We lost we four girls first love
We lost our Best Friend

We lost more than just a Dad that day
Our Mom lost her Soul Mate, Her other half 
Our children lost their Papaw
We lost our family’s foundation 
We lost the glue that held us together

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost the Strongest man we ever knew 
We lost the man we looked up too
We lost we four girls Teacher of many things

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We four girls lost our Hero
We lost some of our Light
We lost part of our Heart
We lost part of our Soul

We lost more than just a Dad that day
We lost some of our Courage
We lost some of our Strength
We lost some of our will to fight back
We lost some of our will to carry on
We four girls lost more than a Dad
We lost more than just a Dad that day

I Miss You

When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
The stories of spring,
Of these past beautiful views,
Return back to me,
And fills my eyes with tears,
I miss you…
At least tell me this much,
That this moonlight comes to you,
And wakes up dreams in you,
And teases you too,
I miss you…
When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
The stories of spring,
Of these past beautiful views,
Return back to me,
And fills my eyes with tears,
I miss you…
When the moments of those days, 
Come by and touch you,
The memories of past days,
Take my sleep away,
I miss you…
When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
When my memory,
Brings tears to your eyes every moment,
When every breath of parting,
Becomes difficult to breathe,
Then forget everything around you,
And return to me,
Break every relation
And come decorate my dreams,
Don’t leave me after that,
When the moonlight in its fullest,
Is spreading over the night,
Your memory at this point,
Pains my heart dearly,
I miss you…
The stories of spring,
Of these past beautiful views,
Return back to me,
And fill my eyes with tears,
I miss you…
My heart aches for you…

Tell Me

I'm lost hurt and angry
Why did you take his life
I want, No I need to know
Tell me, Tell me why
I deserve to know

Haven't you done enough to him
What'd he ever do to you
He suffered his whole life
Suffered more than anyone deserved
Tell me, Tell me why you did it
I have a right to know

Why'd you let him born to them
Born to worthless parents
Parents who didn't care
They threw him away like garbage
Pawned him off on someone else
Tell me, Tell me why
Explain how you could do that

You gave him Polio
You let others treat him like disease
You took away the full use of his legs
You warped his hand and foot
Tell me, Explain to me why
I deserve to know

You let others think he was crazy
You let it go on for over year
You didn't stop it, Why
Tell me, Give me your reason
Answer me, Help me to understand

You go and make matters worse
You gave him Cancer
You didn't give him a chance to fight back
You just jerked him away from us
Tell me, Tell me how
How you could be so cruel

How can others not question you
When others do it, It's murder
But when it's by your hand
It's your will, Their fate
Tell me, What makes you so different
Your no better than the demons knocking at the door

You heard me beg and plead
You know I'm not afraid to die
I was willing to carry it all for him
I was willing to take my Daddy's place
You didn't even let me say Goodbye
Tell me, Tell me why I couldn't 
Answer me, you owe me that much

When You Go To Sleep

I dread the day when I get "the call"
When they tell me that you've gently slipped away
Well, at least I hope it will be gentle
As you close your eyes and say goodnight
Despite my fear of your imminent passing
My darling, you don't know the times I've prayed
And asked God to take you Home to Him
To come and rescue you from this hellish world
A world in which you've been imprisoned
Unable to walk or talk; your two greatest assets
Enslaved to the bonds of Alzheimer's disease
When you go to sleep, my love
Your spirit will soar to the highest heights
And there you'll be with our Father in Heaven
No more the feeling of indignity
Forget about forgetting!
You'll remember every glorious experience
And spend your time singing praises with the angels
You'll also get to meet our relatives
Who have gone to sleep before us
Our little son is waiting excitedly
To run and fling his arms around you!
He'll take you on a guided tour
Of the endless gardens and babbling brooks 
Flowing with life that will never cease
Pain will not be familiar with your name
Fatigue? Just a distant memory
Sickness and disease cannot touch you
And the prospect of death, you'll never know
You can wander around from country to country
Fulfilling your desire to travel the world
Then off you go and explore the stars
That light up the beauty of this earth
Examine the moon, planets and galaxies
Discover Daddy's handiwork
And witness first hand, the beginning of life
As the Big Bang is replayed
Please make sure to keep an eye on us here
Just to see that we're doing okay
Find out what your children are up to
And watch their kiddies turn into parents themselves
Of course, you'll be waiting for the day
When I come and join you for eternity
Until that day, I will always miss you
Thank you so much for coming into my life
Now, lie back, relax, and close your eyes
Go to sleep, my love, you have nothing to fear

I'm Going To Write You A Love Song

Not by request
Not even my best,
Hoping you'll just select a poem
With no sense in the title...
No clue in the first line
That it is divine.
Pick one at random,
Perhaps previously ignored
By those who do not tarry...
Without songs or rainbows
No butterflies and no lies.
Only words needing to express
The current stress of my life
At this particular moment,
Sent out in poetic line
To be classified as good, bad or
Indifferent...
Browse here, through my pages
Of verse
Not rehearsed...
Tell me what you think or not
But Ive got to move on now
To the next twist and turn
Of thoughts
Wrought 
By  circumstances beyond my control
My bold mind running free.

My Love my Muse

I beg for a haven prison please let open your gates
freed of enraptured weak thoughts now still your love dominates

My rivals for your love shall all be all rejected 
thoughts love turning their vintage wine a sour inflected

Smashing statues broken mirrors just convexities
captive my loves wounds just absorbing concavities

The hunt is over and I hear the call to prayer
lover a man contented now no more solitaire

On the Bus

Every week day, same time, same bus, he is there, and I’m careful not to stare
But I can’t take my eyes off his curly shoulder length hair, hopelessly wondering

A face not popularly handsome, but such kind bluey- green eyes, deeper than the ocean
Tall, not slender and a quirky style of dress, not to impress. He kept me curiously wondering

Briefcase, serious and tanned, but scraggy like a boxers face, taken from place to place
Manicured hands with no adornment, no subtle signs of betrothment, I smiled hopefully wondering

Today he caught me in my stare, my face flushed pink, I look away I couldn’t think 
But I saw his smile and for that short while my heart skipped a beat, as I sat motionlessly wondering

The bus had halted, where we both alight, my mind was racing as I caught sight
Standing on the kerbside, holding out his hand to me, I reached out breathlessly wondering 


Hand held firm but gentle, and like cheshire cats smiling, arrayment of colours so beguiling
‘Have you time for a coffee’ I heard him say, my reply what a perfect day, still wondrously wondering



sdited version, hope it's right this time

Place at the Lake

there lies in lovely mountain glen
protected from the harsh north wind
meadows of such gentleness speak
volumes of love from those therein

provide life with abundant scope
promising peaceful love and hope
cradled beneath snow covered peak
food for bird, man and antelope

the Fraser fir, long is its shade
among the trees deer parade
hidden beyond a pristine shore
lies this protected alpine glade

the call of whippoorwill and dove
perfect blue of blue sky above
a home among all this and more
I’m sure, also filled with His love

How to love

My roots are trembling
through clay orgasm,
tumbling the landslide
that speaks every shake or so.
Leo roars and I await life,
Generic roving rumbles
reminding me of the world around,
but I never remember
how to cling to the ground.

Ghazal for you, my reader

I hold the rainbow and an arrow, for you, my reader;
The thrill of good  tomorrow for you, my reader;

The butterfly of happiness will fly from our book
To find a reason and a certitude, for you, my reader;

You don`t remember this verse I took 
In the hand of light, for you, my reader

It was at very beginning a word, for you, my reader
And wonders made by Lord, for you, my reader

Temptation of good , to see the truth ,this festival 
of hope with favorable look, for you, my reader

And here, YOUR NAME I put, while writing a Ghazal:
A nosegay of perfumes, a tender touch for you, my reader

Dekhoon ayina tu teray akss ka gumaan hota hai

Meray kadmon ka safar pher say rawan hota hai,

Janay anjanay main likh doon jo kbhi tujh pay ghazal,
Mera her shair teray husan ka biyaan hota hai,

Teri palkoon pay jo jugnoo ki chamak main dekhoon,
Behti nadia main sitaroon ka jahaan hota hai,

Her aik shab khawaboon main jo tera rang dekhoon,
Meri her neend main teray dil ka makaan hota hai..

I Believe

I believe that the sun shines after the rain
I believe if you don't get hurt you'll never gain
I believe in not doing things the easy way
I believe that being selfish doesn’t pay

I believe in a second chance
I believe in a life long romance
I believe there is life after death
And standing up to a life of mess

I believe in love at first sight
I believe that revenge isn’t right
I believe that first impressions last
And there is nothing better then a good laugh

I believe that dreams do come true
I believe there's destiny for me and you
I believe that good things come to those who wait
I believe love never arrives too late

I believe something good comes from something bad
I believe that for tears of happiness there are tears of sad
I believe everyone has a guardian angel
And the good you do will be rewarded well

I believe sometimes there is no explanation
I believe money can't buy people's affection
I believe you don't know what you've got until it's gone
I believe a new day arrives with every dawn

I believe a smile can be contagious
I believe in being very outrageous
I believe in living with no regrets
I believe that life is as good as it gets

I believe that God watches over us
I believe the little things are worth the fuss
I believe you have each friend for a reason
I believe you will get punished for treason

I believe that what comes first is family
I believe we should all live in harmony
I believe in making the most of a beautiful day
And it's not the end until everything's okay

I believe absence makes the heart grow fonder
I believe you will lose if you sit and wonder
I believe every experience teaches you a lesson
And nothing cures better then a drinking session

I believe everyone has one true love
I believe sometimes we need a little shove
I believe the whole world is a stage 
I believe we only get better with age

I believe that to learn you have to live
I believe that to love someone you have to give
I believe one moment can change your life
And there's still help when you’re in strife

I believe everyone has one true friend
I believe love helps a broken heart mend
I believe in the power of a song
And things will change before too long

I believe living is the best experience
I believe in not laughing at other people’s expense
I believe it’s hard to watch a lover leave
And when they’re gone all you can do is breath

I believe to always look on the bright side
I believe that life is just one big ride
I believe when I die people will grieve
But it’s ok because I believe

Tum

Kinaare pe tehalti dhoop si
Ret mein oas ki boond si ho tum

Din mein naye ujaale si

Aah bharte aasman si
Sikudti hui haya si ho tum

For You

A new feeling I've never felt
You smile and my heart melts
Reasons of self unforgiven
Forever grateful for each 
moment I'm given
You keep me calm with serene 
composure
When times were rough you 
loved harder
Forever indebted to your 
driven loyalty
What I've been searching for 
you complete me
True love the ultimate sacrifice
Two souls unspoken 
compromise
You win I surrender
No motive pure intention
I admire your ability to remain 
focused
Uninterrupted for hours 
endless
I envy your self motivation
Defying all odds of self 
preservation
An answered prayer cast upon 
my life
To see one another through 
each others eyes
I promise you forever because 
I mean it
My promise only last forever if 
you keep it
I would be honored to become 
one with you
To know you to hold you 
because I love you.

Ghazal

The clouds are walking and smile a bit, above the green for joy inviting;
They call a playful rain; the green is shinning; the blue is winning…
And your heart is reading my Ghazal, but rhythm is missing:
Because from ink, ascends so sweet and white, the merry dove.
An arrow flies above the rest of world, the mirror’s love,
At other side of our night, when sun and moon are meeting:
A world of statues in which the dreams were pouring down
Since the beginning of the time, since nothing had been (known); 
But clouds -huge butterflies, and maybe stars, just dreamt the light… 
And those blind dreams were swimming to sweet season of love:
Here is the same river of time, where God forgot his blessed glove.
Unforgettable love at first sight, whose light follows the dove,
And crosses the world and the heavens of That One Love!

Dying Love

First thing in the morning I rise needing you,
And the last thing before sunrise needing you.

The places we have traveled are empty,
Echoing silence since I prize needing you.

Food has no flavor leaving the world bland,
Since to be complete it is wise needing you.

Without you time has no meaning,
Days last foever while no time flies needing you.

Our family is incomplete with you gone,
We are lost as all our heart dies needing you.

You laugh and cast us aside,
Holding power over those with cries needing you.

You have become cold and distant,
I cannot stand any more lies needing you.

All passions have come to an end,
Through eternity I despise needing you.

Miss

I miss smiles in the morning time
I miss laughing until I cry
I miss long conversations that last through the night
I miss the ease in the fear of facing the unknown
I miss hearing the music of love in a moan
I miss the secrets shared between two sacrificed souls
I miss you laying beside me and keeping me warm
I miss the closeness of falling asleep in your arms
I miss the syncing rhythm of two beating hearts
I miss the desire of the feeling that somebody needs me
I miss the passion of somebody wanting to please me
I miss the magic of the love that I still believe in

Sensous Serenade

Ivory flaxen hair swaying in the breeze
To run my fingers through those locks: my very desire.

Face that`s not fair but clear and bright as the moon
To caress that caramel visage: my very desire.

Eyes round and deep like a swirling abyss
To lock my gaze into those orbs: my very desire.

Lips of blooming crimson curve into a smile
To grace that pout with a kiss: my very desire.

Lady, you came up to me like a white wave,
rousing my heart and body, my very desire.

Mohabat mar nahi sakti

Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
badan main jo khoon ki manind,
jo hai aik janoo ki manind,
subha aur sham kay hr pal main,
jo hai aik sakoon ki manind,

Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
Woh rahti hai dua ban kar,
Woh chalti hai hawa ban kar,
Woh sumandar kay talatam main,
Machalti hai wafa ban kar,

Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
Woh sansoon kay sath chalti hai,
Rang ban kar nikharti hai,
Ghata ban kay woh cha jaye,
Woh khushbo ban kay mahkati hai,

Mohabat kaisy mar jaye,
Woh ebadat meray rab say hai,
Tahajud kay saray sajdoon main,
Woh rafaqat hr aik shab say hai,
Woh laboon pay vird karti hai,
Mohabat kaisay mar jaye,
Mohabat mar nahi sakti..

Still

I know how it feels, I been there before.
Don't wanna go to sleep, don't wanna wake up all alone.
I still want you.
The nights seem to last forever, seems the darkness never ends.
Tired wet eyes meet the sunrise, the heartache rebegins.
I still miss you.
First breath of the morning barely reaches the lungs, first glance in the mirror burns down to the soul.
I still need you.
Silent night, the lights go off. The heart starts longing, the tear drops start to fall.
I still love you.
It’s crazy how your image still takes my breath away, how my heart still pounds in desperation when I hear your name.
I still want you.
I try to clear my mind in the still of a moment but before I can do it your memory takes over.
I still miss you.
I need a familiar face, I feel so alone. The worst pain you can imagine and it can't be consoled.
I still need you.
As the sun begins to set I can feel that sunken breath. I’m forced to hold my composure until I'm alone in bed. 
I still love you.

Ghazal

I  met a man with scars in New Orleans
He worked a hustler bar in New Orleans

He went to The Double Play bar by bus
He did not own a car in New Orleans

He offered his body to hungry men
In sex, he would go far in New Orleans

He protected me from men on the street
Yet he had battle scars in New Orleans

War had taken a toll on his psyche
His actions were bizarre in New Orleans

I controlled his behavior but sometimes 
I loved him from afar in New Orleans

If someone insulted me in the club
With that man he would spar in New Orleans

He watched over me and looked after me
My heart was left ajar in New Orleans

I grew to care for his six foot four frame
Hard to say au revoir in New Orleans

He always called me Mr. Ethington
Caring far above par in New Orleans.

Rewards of Love

I seek not a robe of glittering pearls and rubies shinning bright
Give me a modest dress only not shorter than my height

A handcuff, a collar or may be, a shackle heavy and tough
The adornment for me should compliment the stature of my love

My foe wishes to improve his stature or he wants me dead?
Does he seek my turban of glory or he seeks my head?

A pickaxe  in my hand I have and fervour of love in heart
Do not fail me, O tough rock! Stream of milk* start

The treasure of ideals and vision aren’t on trees to pluck
For wealth of sensitivity, anguish and pain, one would need my luck

Seeing human sufferings, Yamin, causes torments and pains
Put me in the cosy arms of sleep, where peace and serenity reigns

----
* Reference to legendary Asian lovers Shireen & Farhad. Farhad dug a rock to start the 
stream of milk for the sake of his love.

The Taste of Bliss

Your face illumines the night
It fills my soul with delight
Your body pressed next to mine
Makes my world dazzle with light

There is no present nor past
Only my heart beating fast
Your smile stops the hands of time
Promising that love with last

We look at the mighty sea
And I hear your pledge to me
That your love is much stronger
Than the sea could ever be

You turn my face to the sky
And whisper that it’s no lie
That the pure celestial lights
Can not reach your love on high

You run your hands through my hair
You swear an oath and a dare
That as long as life does last
Your love will always be there

You say that I’m your treasure
That your love has no measure
You ask me this to believe 
That life holds only pleasure

You seal your love with a kiss
Making my heart beat a miss
And as my world starts to spin
I know I’ve tasted sheer bliss

On Entering Heaven

Welcomed around me the half dead in lost love writhing in ecstasy
I myself now in the place of the past of dreams devoid of such chastity 
Well met seeing my lost love beautiful with chestnut eyes and soft such curved hips
In dreams devoid of vanity I will and now just serve myself so handsomely

Celebration

I’m in this celebration
So full of jubilation
Do you want to know just why?
Here is the explanation!

I gave him my confession
That he’s my one obsession
He responded with delight
Made me his own possession

I now make no concession
Of love I make profession
My love has become my life
He has my adoration

So join this celebration
Take Love’s initiation 
You’ve got just one life to live
Get rid of hesitation!

Make love your true fixation
Get rid of all vexation
Give in to love and let go
You'll feel the liberation!!!

Insisting

The darkness, how it does keep own persisting
From me it said, you have no will resisting
Completely it has almost spread round the world
Telling you, this is all there be existing 

Preying on all, there is no righteous soul left
Intentions of thee to leave all you bereft
Molding ye a fruitless pattern of death
The Creator does say, their will be a theft

Endurance of faith in the One you should trust
Turn away you all, from fleshly mortal lust
The more men turn on you the more you will see
Follow thee path of Jesus Christ does be just

The Galaxy of Thoughts

                          Let the reality be unveiled, O galaxy of thought
Whither the doors of chamber of knowledge the men of vision sought 
      
      The depth of ocean of wisdom, life is set out to reach 
Unfolds like the bloom of spring, sensibility you beseech

For ages the eyes of consciousness, ‘ave been yearning to find
        The keys of vision that unlocks the closed prison of mind

The bright stars of imagination in moments of despair sink
  How fragile are the images that chains of perception link!

 The space beyond my perception has more than one domain
My thirst of knowledge may set me on a journey to unknown

     Look Yamin! What gifts for you your exploring soul has brought
Reflection –discernment and vision; wisdom –the heaven of thought

the casual pageantry of madness

standing at the top of the staircase 
closing the eyes & arms out wide
fallen in love with the casual pageantry of madness
the one & only
the love that will not leave
the you that will not cease to be &
tumbling backward laughing
out & out into the open air
back bouncing down the ridges
without a care
bones ricocheting
bruises purpling & all coming to the surface of the skin
this is how you begin again.

so who was it that said that being normal was cool?
what again is normal, but following rules?
the status quo (piss, yellow in the snow)
writing your name in it for all the world to see
(and still staying within the lines)---

madness invites
madness comforts
madness kisses on the lips
madness will not cheat
madness will not steal from you
it only beckons that you
take from those that insist that they are
right in every way.

walk with caution because the self-righteous
slink around on the ground in their slithery snakeskin
amongst us---
the best that one can do is don your steel toed boots &
grind them into the ground
when they come to town.

Long and dark may be the tunnel

Dark are my days, darkened with pain Light and joy has flown down the drain All for a cause of an unexpected zeal Meant for a heart to be captured, my captain! Dark may be my days, dark are the nights Amidst the agony, the coming days fill me up with frights Of what use is living in emptiness, in void If blank seems the mere existence, once the object of my delights! Days are forever bad, luck seems so sad With fever, it would seem fortune is clad Love meant to the enjoyers of doom The awakened, devoid of love, are among the myriad! And in the darkened depth, I smile Amidst the dark doom, I cross the mile For submissive to a fragile fate, I have experienced the holiness in good style! Saved from the swampy marsh My Life meant to be one so harsh Yet joy to be my ending reward For treading the dark tunnel can be truly dullish! Love, Love, remains the miracle Love and show mercy in amounts ample How can there be love in the dark tunnel Hope is there, for the end of the battle

If I Say

If I say that I love,
would you know it's from the heart?
If I say I miss you,
would you believe from the moment of part?
 
When we are together
I want it to be forever!
You know when I say I love you
That it's really true.
 
I just want you to know my love for you
is really true.

Eager To Live

Search is continuous in these words I have penned 
Eager in anticipation for a message please send
A thirst unrelenting is my desire for you to quench
Bless me Oh, Lord with your fisherman’s bend

What reason do I have otherwise but in you to exist?
Give me the strength over temptations that always persist
Thank you for granting me a new day to grow in you
Ultimately the goal allows your will in me to insist

The journey is part of the lesson one must learn
Bless me with the ability so my mind may discern
Knowledge and understand with wisdom of you
Forget me not Oh, Lord on the day of your return

The Rubaiyat of ' Lenore's LOVE '

The - Rubaiyat of  “ Lenore “ LOVE

In a distant time  of memories, swimming in a deep blue sea
Floating with the clouds above , disguised as azure tapestry
Forest eyes, gleaming in the evergreens, soothes the leaf of oak
Gone; not Forgotten, my heart Forever yearning : entwines with she

To live the life of Heaven, You hug the Trinity : Forever You Live
Waiting for the eons of Eternity when I gather all the Love you have to give
Forest eyes, gleaming in the evergreens, whispered words unspoken
Seeing the Light, Feeling the Glory : yet Love’s blood; drips through a sieve 

One drop at a time , Cleansing the Soul ; reunite  the true Hearts of LOVE
Together again for a moment in the serenity of time which flies as a pure white Dove
The Sunset smell of YOUR Auburn hair, the Chinese silk of YOUR skin
Embedded  in the bands of a Watch called : ‘ Eternity “ Never ending LOVE

Embracing YOU Lenore, is like touching the hem of the Universe
To gaze upon such “Elegant Beauty” ; Love creates an unquenchable Thirst
As I watch YOU : Waltzing across the Horizon  : Climbing the Stars to Heaven
 The Comet , Blushes : Red as Roses ;  Nova dims :  Cries  : “ Why were You First “

Remembrance of our Youth ;  “ Exuberant LOVE “ Prevails upon my Mind
Your long Auburn Hair, tickles my Soul;  In my HEART : Your Forever I Find
And I Dream of the Forest : as YOU Illuminate  it with YOUR “Emerald green Eyes”
The Fern breathes Life; the leaves ENTWINE  with Love Always : to which I am Blind

Gaze upon Lenore and Your Heart does not skip a beat : You are not in Love, as I 
A kiss upon Her “ rose Lips  “  a kiss of Eternity”  a Kiss I may never know until I Die
The encore that the Heart beats for, is the Overture of a Life Budding in GOD’S Grace
Lenore : with all of Heaven’s Love Surrounding YOU each Day "an Image in my EYE"

Outside Of The Box

This is a tale for you regarding Pandora and the box.
Here we find an attempt to put back on the lock
A trip back to Alexandria in your mind we must go
Trying to protect but you can’t turn back the clock

What had tried to be sealed is not what one expect
Only wanting to keep others from trying to dissect
The library was vast holding knowledge long passed
Gallant was the attempt though evil did misdirect

Someone had already check out these 365 books
See the flames raised high the city did overcook
Spread them north and east so ordered the beast
Because at the Star he did not want you to look

The One and Only

No words in the universe can help the intrductory of my apologetic note
The dissapointment i hear is poison to my health without any antidote 
The three days you were in my presence surpass the value of all my days put together
The world around me disapears when i embrace you with my arms its a moment I crave to last forever
You are the inspiration behind all my poems the source of my stimulation
fortunate to have been loved by you perhaps one day i'll deserve your angel baby dedication.
My next words are honest,simple,short but true, Im very sorry Ness
You might not care of my existence,its just a pain I had to get off my chest.
Reading my words you may think Im a fraud but, its reality I need you like I need air its not a choice but, a nessecity.

Nesting

The horrid hollowness of the empty nest,
viewed without a redress, empty nest.

Years of doting, uplifting, caring
bring forth a man of kindness, empty nest.

The sun which rose with his laughter
sets with a mother’s loneliness, empty nest.

Let my heart sing with each memory
of cuddled child breathless, empty nest.

Remembering you, longing for your smile,
brings meaning home, fullness to empty nest.

My gift

Wrapped in pretty primroses
Radiating a sweet fragrance
Is 'My gift' ,I do declare 
So close to my heart that
It beats with every sigh
I take so as I care
'My gift' is like a daffodil
Its colours are like a fiddle
Giving the music of life and love
It makes my heart fly as if a dove
Towards the Mountains of love and peace 
Amidst the skies above and beyond...
Reaching a secret hidden place to rest
So does my heart come to know the 'best..!

'My gift' I now unveil
Is 'My Life with you'
I have cherished so ..
From the time..
I was a bud in a flowering bowl!

Worshipper of Love

I, a long forgotten tune; you, a melody sweet and bold
How will then our reunion be in this splendid world

One is a jewel in the crown, the other dust –no worth
One is the shinning star in horizon, the other part of earth

How to meet the endless yearnings of my brainless heart
It forsakes all that I urge and I decry its part

Priests and preachers are men of vision; I regard them right
I am a humble worshiper of love; with them, I have no fight

In vain are, the prudence and vision, casting their glow and light
Cloaked in the darkness of ones deeds, life is a moonless night

Darkness is casting its shadow on life, but why Yamin, complain
Love, fragrance and colour fade out and not life-long sustain

Enticing Friendship ( Ghazal )

Enticed, I knew, she wanted more, than a touch, though I stayed restrained,
That night, I massaged her back so right, though thoughts remained.

Each passing moment, delivered passionate reverbs, into my head,
I dared not, knowing we could never be forever, though thoughts remained.

We were friends, shared so much, but that was all, that we would ever be,
Not blessed in true passion, each different in fashion, though thoughts remained.

I left defenseless, mystified, why I never took advantage, of her body,
I recall, each moment, feeling her heart reach, though thoughts remained.

I left in friendship; she left the next day, for another life, in another place,
I stayed home, split for a while, love found my style, though thoughts remained.

Anguish

My charming love attracts this side, magnificent God that side
Which side should my loyalty go the distinction is wide?

Be my mansion of heart deserted, why my eyes shed tears
A silent desert excels the town where doomsday’s trumpet blares

It seeks no healing hands of Jesus, its torments contain
Compared to reluctant relief I prefer ceaseless lethal pain

Opposed to cruel realities, O life! With radiance of mirage cope
In contrast to colossal darkness of despair, better a flicker of hope

A minion of loyalty I am and my love knows only this
‘Yes’ for whatever you ask for, ‘yes’ for what you wish

Was it my sagacity or a brainless act of heart?
To embrace even the death happily for beauties that enchant

She is benevolent cloud of rain and I pernicious gust
What you heard were honest words and what she said was just

If Yamin, your goal is love, then why do you complain?
What should life reward you with, if not anguish and pain?

Radiating Love

With angel wings and the sound of a cooing dove,
This creature flew to tree willow weeping above

Feeling its presence there___a light touch to my hair;
Standing in awe of its love radiating above

This being sent from antiquity to me__
The calming, assuring, good guide flowing above

Created an aura of his abiding love;
Shining, surrounding this creature floating above

Out on the porch close to stars,  Heaven..Sunflower___
Is absorbed in this love forever above.

For the Love of Winter

And I can smell the windswept pine
Warmly holding hands, yours in mine
We move against the coming night
Our aching bodies drawing the line

Through the snow we lightly play
Laughing madly, in love we stay
Back to our cabin of logs and love
As the sun dwindles to a single ray

Bathed in firelight, glistened in sweat
We roll and writhe and love and yet
We two stripped and licked by flame
Fuelled by amore and desirous inset

These presents we give each our hearts
Bound together we lay upon fiery hearth
As winters coat enwraps this self bounty
We shall never be alone or torn apart

Always And Forever




Always and forever, I think
Of you..

The dawn golden light..

Growing to perfection..

So pure and true..

Within my mind my
Soul..

You are my pass my present
My future..

You are..

Woven so softly within my
Spirit that flies so free..

You will be..

Always and forever my love
So true..

Realistic Dreams (Ghazal)

Tempting, do those eyes an invite wake
The gradual lay by low in dreams regret. 

We carefully unrobe whilst orbs cement
The residue on wakening each sense. 

Unknotted do the fumblings of caress
Indulge so loosely bound on satin sheets.

I bleed to death each pondering of a whim  
It holds a severed heart so slow, the beat.    

It lingers while this love sustains as time
And sleeps while we awake no time at all.

Together in the lucrative of oils,
So slight! Does skin on skin so slight collide.

And independence wilts as two converse,
While body language molecules disperse.

There's a full moon in a serenade approach
As we silhouette a variety of turns.

Allah! Spread the cape, conceal our bond 
The sanctuary our climax urges on.

Sweetness as our cumulative peace becomes, 
A disappearing act in dreams' pursuit.

LADY IN RED (Rubaiyat)

He always loved the song 'Lady In Red'
so I decided to mess with his head,
The dress I wore showed cleavage and some legs
was flaming red with strands of silver thread.


I pinned my hair up with some silver pegs
and took a drink down to the very dregs,
The music's on, his song begins to play
he looks at me with eyes that truly begs.


He took me in his arms we danced away
he held me tightly wishing I would stay,
I felt his body warming to my touch
as on his heaving chest my head I lay.


But now I'm thinking, this is just too much
so I stepped back and glanced down at my watch,
And said I have to go, excuse me please
the shock showed as his jaws fell down a notch.


And as I gave his hand a gentle squeeze
the twinkle in my eyes made him say "Freeze,"
He kissed my lips and led me to the bed
and said "Lady in red, you're such a tease."

MORE THAN MYSELF

This is my love poem for Vaentines day. It was written for my love Liz.




                 More than myself

If every moon beam
Touching your lovely face  
      Was a reflection of my love for you

And every lunar ripple                                        
        On the surface of every sea
     Were expressions of my love

It would still not be enough
For me to show how much 
    You mean to me

The deepest reaches of the farthest seas
        Can not express how deep
   My love for you is my Lion Queen

The lofty peaks of the highest mountains
        Would be far below my heart 
  as it is carried on the wings of your love

And the vast icy void of space and time
        Cannot express the empty coldness
  I would feel if I were to loose you

My being is warmed by the sun of your presence
        As are the seeds of life
  Warmed by the first loving  rays of spring

And like the mighty humbleness of life giving waters
        I will always seek the lowest point
  And place you above myself and all other desires

I need you like the wind needs direction
      I love you like the hawk loves the sky
  You consume me as fire does wood 
      You better me as spirit does soul

I give thanks in the morning evening
     And all points between
  To the one who made this possible
      for you and I

And now I give thanks to the one most deserving
     Of my loving attentiveness
  The one who both graces and challenges my life 
      With your fiery spirit

For you or the one 
    I love more than myself
  These being the highest of feelings
     I’ve ever felt

They Have Been Blotted Out

Reminding that this will be your end
In this message I am about to send
Having knowledge and not following the path
An eternity in the pit you will spend

Ignorance now may be thy flower
Praying not for the rain to shower
In death another chance fore they do not know
Fearless fools in the darkness they cower

Being aware of the all ye many sins
Still this leaves no game plan that wins
Because thy tree bares no fruit
No matter how they try and spin

Continuing to foster false pride
As though you stand by the Creator side
He says the punishment be much worse for you
All your deeds were done to misguide

Earth to Earth

With earnest passion raindrops pummel earth and seep within her soul
I wonder if I cried for her if I could creep within her soul?

With sunlit breath the earth is burned and fire leaps beyond control,
I wonder if my breath on her could light love deep within her soul?

The gentle moon caressed her face to sweep from pole to distant pole
I wonder if I touched her so, if I could sleep within her soul?

The dewdrop tears of earth await the dawn to peep and to console
I wonder if I bowed my head if I could weep within her soul?

The seeds I’ve never tried to nourish can’t be reaped for they’re not whole;
without that tenderness I’m but a hurting heap within her soul.

My heartbeat leads me like a sheep unto a sacrificial knoll,
it’s where she shears the wool of love that I made cheap within her soul.

Oh, storms have stole all hope that I could steep myself in pitch and coal.
The ‘jinni’ spells grow weaker while love falls asleep within her soul.

The Other Shore

The Other Shore 
 

 
Oh my dear little precious
One
Your life was short upon
This planet
But I know you will go so
Very far
Within the openness of
Your love
I know your love will always
Be
Now just fly into the light and
Swim the wave of my tears
And I’ll
Meet you again on the other
Shore

So fly on my dear little precious
One
So gentle so beautiful your
Memory
Will touch and remain a part
Of my heart
I look for you in the morning
Sun
The evening sunset will draw
You near
So fly my little dear precious

Don’t look back
Don’t wait for me
The tears I shred is
Cause I love and miss your 
Gentle smile
So
Let your heart shine with the

For I know we’ll meet on that

Dream expands in its soul 
Forgotten to walk in fire

The Admirers

During the night, in a lake of dismay,
A boat of lights crawls with may
To engulf a person with hope and will
Sealing them to make sure they are still,

Tunes of greeting broke free
As they danced by the light's spree
With wide smiles upon their faces
No tennis player could ever ace

Thoughts of that person played in someone's mind
Remembering the moments spent with that friend;
The times they ran together
Racing the wind and became light as a feather

The times the sun shone on their faces
As they hiked mountains and climbed trees
The time laughs filled their spirits
Where the air was filled with humors

No one is left alone without thoughts
For they are always in the minds of their secret admirers

IN GOD'S WORDS

The ink in my pen writes and demands to be heard
It screams peace, justice, and hope as it pens God’s word 
As my ink flows, there are too many days that I cried 
From the truth of my past pain I witnessed my words of poetry haven’t lied
But I’m a man who was beaten, and his insanity denied
I never gave up my will to survive, so every day I tried
My fear of not knowing fueled my weakness but; it also gave my faith strength
Jesus’s love swathed my soul, his mercy and grace healed my body at length 
The lies of disease and defeat that served as unworldly stimulations
The words of Jesus gave me encouraging hope, which healed my past 
condemning revelations
With all my life’s tribulations and experiences that I’ve witnessed I know that 
Jesus will heal this nation
I write this poem to God to show my appreciation
The ink in my pen will never run out
Because Father God will never forsake and leave me without a doubt

By the Feel

How we measure love’s touch, is it by feel
Or by pound, foot or inch, or just the feel?

Electricity it is –as our fingers meet
But not dry air -yet sparks are what we feel.

I can feel the rain on a dark, gray day
I cannot tell if the day is gray, by the feel.

Rain is cold here even in the summer
On my hot face, it is cool by the feel.

My cat is old now but her fur is still soft
Like touching your skin, soft by the feel.

Love is like light to a blind man
Who could not see -but by the feel.

This poet is all of the above, soft, wet, cool
Blind, your love blinds me, but for the feel.

Sai, it is the gray days and your cat,
Rain and your soft skin and the feel.
