Rising before me, are your eyes,.. like the stars
Embracing the light, while reflecting the moon
A room filled with people, ...yet it seems we're alone
Closer you've pulled me, as we dance to one song
Hearing old music, that we knew long ago
For, you and the night, have been here all along
Over the moon, where we wanted to be
Reaching for stars, in our own magic way
The questions I’ve asked, I know you have heard
Here and hereafter are just steps apart
Each step brings me nearer....be still, gentle heart!
Some things are intended, that we never part
The place I belong, is always with you
All things I have longed for, I've had from the start
Reaching for stars, .... I climbed over the moon
Stars shine in your eyes, as we dance to old tunes

Without words I follow you
Into the willow's sheltering shade,
Leaves softly swaying sweet welcome
Limbing a tree serenade;
Overhead song birds keep vigil
Watching love between man and maid.
Tambour rhythm of two hearts
Racing, impetuous and free,
Yearning for love's sacred moment
Secretly shared with a willow tree;
Two lovers tryst, my husband with me.

A Marriage Creed
So now my little Man, you've gotten tired of grass"
LSD, goof balls, hash" and pills. Someone pretending to
be your friend - decided to introduce you to me,
Well honey, before you start fooling around with me, just
let me inform you of how it's going to be. I will
seduce you and make you my slave, I have send men
much bigger than you to their graves.
You think that you can never become a disgrace and end
up like poppy seed waste. You will start inhaling me one
afternoon. You will take me into your arms very soon and
once I have entered deep down in your veins - the craving
for me, will drive almost insane.
You will need lots of money ( as you have been told ) for
darling - I am much more expensive than gold. You will
swindle your mother and just for a buck, you will turn
into something vice and corrupt. You will rob and steal
for my narcotic charm and feel contentment when I am
in your arm.
The day you realize the monster you have become - you
will sollemly promise to leave me alone. If you think that
you have that mystical knack - than darling just try getting
me of your back.
The vomit, the cramps, your gut tied up in a knot, the jangling
screaming for just one more shot. The chills and cold sweat, the
withdrawls pains can only be cured by my little white grains.
There is no other way and there is no need to look, for deep
down inside you'll know that you're HOOKED. You will despertely
run to the pusher and then you will welcome me back to your arm
once again and when you return ( just as I foretold ) I'll know that
you'll give me your body and soul.
You'll give up your morals, your consceience, your heart and you'll
be mine untill DEATH do us part...
Written by Lucilla M. Carrillo
Note: This will be the last poem that I'll
write on this. I don't want to bore you.
I just feel that more people need to know
about this problem...

Red Petals Of Everlasting Love
Perfect couples united in a Holy Matrimony
Entwined by God in His most divine harmony
They built a home in the fortress of true love
A salubrious place, their most comforting cove.
Lulling over a lake of serenity from the start
Sustained by faith and fidelity deep in the heart.
For being steadfast in love, in their conviction
Over the years, no squalls razed their foundation
Relentlessly, they look forward for future boons.
Blessed now they are with lovely and talented children
In their sacrifices and patience, dreams will be on hand
Nurtured kids by their great mother and father
God loving and fearing ones, blessings to all others.
Red petals of everlasting love rain from the sky
Outpouring over these two hearts’ boundless tie
Matrimonial bond - an oath to God forever
Eternal amorous affinity they’ll never surrender
Lifetime creases their body, it doesn’t matter.

Generous nature nurturing our plants and family too
Altruism sprinkled with lots of hopes and loving care
Reaching for the sun and spreading warmth to many souls
Daffodils her Springtime flower pushing through the ground
Energetic grandchildren are fertilized with play

I caress you in my arms
and your beauty alarms me...
your soft skin disarms me
and your musical voice charms me...
I lose myself within you
everytime our lovemaking begins a new...
And I knew in that moment
that I had to vent my sentiments
I love you and my essence would plead too
that I drink you, I eat you, and I breath you
...I need you!...

She's like the essence of variety.
Her ability to inspire me
taste like passion when she says "Hi" to me.
She'll never lie to me.
Cause she's truth.
She's love like a harsh lesson
and more precious than a subtle blessing.
Constantly testing my sanity like a harsh whisper...
And unlike fear... her sister
I kissed her and never knew lonliness
was not an option
after adoption of her promise
She's my companion and like my heart
we were made to be together
She is forever and to sever us... is death.
Like breath without her there's no me left.
Life... my wife... my existence
I'm so deeply in love with you
Pain... I insist this

Tic-toc, tic-toc, hushed hours chime loudly
Hoping you’ll get here soon, so I can wildly
Effervesce, your scent intoxicating fiercely.
At work with no clue, ignorance bliss, like her,
For she’s oblivious too. We need to find a cure.
Floating on the echo of your last spoken words,
All-consuming desires, once more—always just one more time.
I can’t continue like this, guilt overpowering. It’s over.
Rarely does anyone come out unscathed!

Married under a lavish evergreen canopy,
aromatic blooms filled the evening air.
Grand was our cathedral of open sky.
on the twenty forth of May (your grandparents' anniversary).
Lying above us on an old lower limb:
initials side by side, theirs and ours,
artistically carved by him and you, many years apart.
Sweet bridal bouquet of magnolias you cut.
When as your grandfather's tradition to your grandmother,
each twenty forth of May, she and I received a bouquet.
Even after his death you carried on for both of us, then to her grave.
That tree bloomed two lifetimes of bouquets, both bitter and sweet.
Then we parted.... Went our separate ways.
Reality sometimes overshadows romanticism,
although true love never dies.
Deep in our hearts the magnolia still blooms.
I missed you as much as you missed me, those eleven years,
till one day the sun stepped up on my porch.
I knew when I looked in your eyes and felt your embrace,
On the twenty forth of may, I'll receive a bouquet.
Never again will we part.

Can there be more solid man
On the couch he’s planted here
Under blankets and old books
Calling orders for more beer
Has he grown a set of roots
Planting him eternally
Or is it possible
That he ‘s related to a tree?
As I glance at him again
Taking drinks and giving smiles
Oh, I’d rather have him home--
TV’s cheaper than gas miles

Maybe G_d was tired when he enlivened Adam first
Who would organize the world so full of stuff--
No man can find his keys without a woman toting purse

At dawn, the air was tinged with the smell of impending heat
Best friends make the best spouses!!
Last night apart was totally overrated. Bachelor boredom.
Uptight? Not by a damned sight. Can’t wait to marry my soul mate!
Everybody’s looking so dapper! How unusual!
Mom and Dad walk with me to the garden, where I see you…
Oh my, do you look like an absolute goddess!
Over 100 degrees under the chuppah; thought we’d be the supper!
Nuptials, circling and consecrating each other, vows, true love and joyous tears
Indivisible for all time, joined as a family, my wife and I. Wife? Husband? Wow.
Nibbling the amazing food here and there while making the rounds
Jubilant and giddy while taking pictures after; the pictures show it!
Us alone for stolen moments here and there
Night fell; we drove off into the sunset with the Blue Moon rising behind us
Ending in sweet togetherness on and off all blessed night

I thought by now that I would have
traveled down the aisle of matrimony
I thought by now that a silver band would
have been placed upon my finger
I thought by now that there would have
been well wishes and a honeymoon
I thought by now that there would be, well
you know how it goes
Well, his ways are not my ways, his
thoughts are not my thoughts
It's all about his timing
So, I'll wait with the thoughts that God
loves me so much that he has kept
me for that special someone

By Curtis Johnson
Between children and church, work and play, we’ve had a good life
At this season in our lives, our work is measured; not a push and rush
Relationship with God and between the two of us, are by far our greatest quest
Before “you”, there was barely a “me” ; with you I am fulfilled, as we climb our hills.
At the beginning, we thought that we were destined to travel together around the world,
Rescuing and feeding the hungry; helping to save the lost; praying for the sick to be healed.
At some point, however, we had children of our own, and stuck to our mission closer to home.
And honey, I must say that it is both my pride and privilege to be growing old with you.
Never to be separated but by death, is the phrase that must always describe our relationship
Nothing pleases me more than being at one with you, and having our marital covenant still in tack.

Carl was very anxious
Olivia looked at him and she became suspicious…
“Never before I wanted to confess it to you” he said
“From the very first day…" his face became red…
"Everything I wanted is to be with you forever,
Spend good and bad days together,
Sing songs to our future children,
Illustrate our house with a picture of yellow linden...
Olivia, marry me..." he knelt
"Never...I'd be able to live without you", her heart melt...

F antastical daydream, from that moment on, made real
O therworldly, God-sent, lover, full of fervent zeal.
R ipe masculinity, dripping with desire,
E yes smoldering with charasmatic Fire.
V aliant, Demi-God, modern-day Prince Charming,
E ffervescent boy-ish smile, disarming.
R uminating romantic, hopeless devotion, head over heels
I rreplaceable, irresistible, toe-curling squeals.
N atural-born, artful lover, kisses of wine
Y outhful exuberance, male specimen, so fine.
O pen-hearted, unguarded, child-like, heart is true
U nbridled passion ensues
R acing heart, bated breath, tingling anticipations
E nvelops my soul beyond expectations
Y oung love turns to slow, deep embers still burning
E mbraces with still hungry arms still leave me yearning
S ouls entwined, keeps love's hope burning.

Frances, my wife and forever friend,
Romantic, on her I depend,
Always loving when I least expect,
Never aloof, always showing respect,
Caring and kind to all she meets,
Even strangers smile she greets,
She says she's no angel, she is to me.

ADVICE FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM
Forgiveness is key.
Agree to disagree, and you’ll
Get along fine. Say
I love you often.
Leave room for the other to breathe.
Each night go to bed with a kiss.
Hear each other! Listen intently!
Eagerly await your spouse’s arrival.
Attend to the marriage, never
Rescind the contract nor threaten it.
Train your children by your example.
Serenade each other with kind words.
FRAGILE glass shatters lives. Protect your
HEARTS like you would an heirloom figurine.

Going to be happy is what say she
