You kissed him in front of me

You didn’t notice my tears.

As you both kissed each other
like two lonely plungers
who just escaped from plumber’s solitary confinement,
your eyes open and wander up.

You didn’t look across that banquet hall
with my feet planted against wood polished tendencies.

Its creaks motioning time towards yellow-signal identity.

As my breath declares sudden death
against lake’s dripping reflections…
…you didn’t think to set your photo album on private.
 
Advertising lust
wrapped in pretentious cloak
sewed in recycled fibers of “love”.

With ignorant enablers speaking chic-flick tongue,
“Oh My Gawd! I’m so happy for you! I wanna ovulate!”

As I, put my head down
returning to this moment in time,
I had to let my song…cry.

Lenny Williams begins to exude “cause I love you” chorus,
as I walk towards bar
sensing your seductive retinas
stroking against my Latin swagger.

Your ring finger
chained by 3 carat, naïve cut, diamond
motions an intense, streaking caress
against wine glass filled with Zinfandel sin.

Because you know I am your addiction.

Your diabetic lips never forgot
that taste
of my
brown
sugar.

But, you didn’t notice my tears.

I wish you had.

For all this time, these tears
were of joyful splendor.

Because solace holds my hand
with candlelight warmth.

Slow dancing with my soul
in mystery Salsa sway.

While you stand on home plate,
holding your 2nd place trophy,
with 3 strikes against you.

A reminder that my heart,
was flexible enough
to dodge
a bullet.

Thank You

Another beautiful day has come to a close putting on my royal blue silken pajamas I call to my sweet one come take hold of my outstretched hand. We bow our heads and thank Him. Lord thank you for another terrific day for allowing the sun to rise up and shine thank you for warm gentle breezes that allowed us to fly our kites bringing so many bubbly smiles on our children Thank you dear Lord for the flowing stream and the wildflowers we saw along the way in our hunt for frogs and turtles. Thank you Lord for the food that we ate and the air that we breathed. It was such an exhilarating day. Thank you Lord for all the joy you bring the song of love you allow me to sing Thank you for bringing into my life a most beautiful soul, for gorgeous and happy children, and for making our lives whole So much to be grateful for dear Lord but none of my humble words are ever enough to praise you. Dear Lord It's my time to beg now So dont go away just yet I beg you for forgiveness for any harm I might have caused to my sister, or my brother to my working colleagues or any other I beg forgivness for all the times I choose the pleasure of darkness over what is really the bright side of life. Dear Lord, make men better husbands and make me a good wife. Dear Lord I beg you let not envy, power, success nor selfishness steal the purpose of my living and of what is right. Make me a better person Lord Help me choose You as my guide Let me be a faitful being to those who are in burden Help me to do little things everyday little things that make a difference to those i love, and those who pass my way Let me be a lending ear Let my smile relieve some pain Let me be at least one colour of the rainbow in their loneliness, in tearful rain Dear lord may those I meet in every street recognize I am Your own, not from my words but from my kindred deeds Last but not least, fill my heart with blissful grace as I share this serene night with the one you chose for me the one who has the most angelic face. Together Lord we thank you

My Thanksgiving Prayer

T	he God of our Fathers, sole author of all life
H	e, by decree placed man above the rest 
A	nd all other creations in his charge for keeping
N	ow and forever, let your truths be written in our hearts
K	eeping man forever mindful of this high place
S	o with gratitude this special day is planned
G	iving thanks and praise to the one true King
I	n you alone our faith and trust will lie
V	alidate our hearts we do implore
I	nundate our lives with grace of light
N	ever turn away from our humble plea 
G	ive us eyes to see and the ears to hear

D	ying, freely, you gave us life; by rising you gave us hope 
A	ll your words and actions teach the ultimate truth
Y	our love alone holds our world in stead

I'm Sorry

I’m sorry for the flowers that I always sent
Being a nuisance was never my intent
I apologize for all the mushy letters
I thought with you, I would do better
I just wanted to show you how I feel
To show you that love is something real
I was simply amazed by the beauty of your eyes
All they ever did was remind me of a sunrise
Your smile always had me in awe
It was the most beautiful thing I ever saw
The problem is I always thought with my heart
Instead of letting my head take a part
My heart would always tell me what to do
When my head would say, “son have you no clue?”
I understand that love is not your thing
Which is why I always gave you a candy ring
One thing that I do realize is this
You always loved me, but just with a love that does not exist
This is why I want to thank you
Because you inspire me to do what I do

Him

I feel him everywhere
He's my savior and loving prayer

Let me tell you he's mighty fine

Smiling eyes to see me through
In everything I choose to do

The very best of humankind

My very soul my dream come true
Never loved anyone like I love you

God knows I thank him all the time

I feel him everywhere
Angels sent him I'm aware

I will love him till the end of time

In So Many Ways

Your willing lips encased entwined with mine   
The taste as soft as the morning cast dew,
Emerald eyes the clarity of wine
Brings to mind the wondrous Castle to view.
Your voice as sweet as Thrush in harmony
A chorus awakened to the sunlight,
Penetration of love in litany
In deep alliteration morn till night.
Embraced in shackled touch with bonds thus bind
Oh I will of words pen of this love found,
You took a sad heart upon like did find
Staid the exterior yet ardour sound.
Your love's reflection my happiest days
This need to tell you in so many ways.

Plopping on One-eyed Frass

is there such a thing as one-eyed fr.ass?!

Huh.

Maybe, maybe not 

ha. Do (doo? does?) frass even have eyes. I think not!

Sure looks pretty though...

if I were given the chance to choose what my poop looks like,
I'd choose frass!

Always

Vapors of emerald and jade ribbon the hauntingly beautiful sky,
and I sat in wonder, transfixed, mesmerized
For me, it moved, more like danced
to a melody that only the heavens could hear
For it moved me, danced into my soul
with a melody that only my heart could hear

I imagine it laughing, humming, just being alive—
brilliant as it only knows how
I see it celebrating life, loving it
Wisps, streaks, bands, of love and of light
a genius embracing, swirling the unknown vastness 
I feel that there was eclectic music playing,
finding it impossible that there would be none.
I have looked into it, but I don’t think I can ever fully grasp it,
of how it is about the ions of the Sun, magnetism and the air
of colliding and bursting into light,

glowing into this curtain of inspiring awe and Color....
Heaven's jewels of amethyst, emerald, sapphire and ruby
—liquefied, vaporized
Raining, swaying, gyrating in that blessed Infinite onyx Sky,
Dancing

it Amazes me, just plain ‘ol stumps me
of how something that I have seen only on paper, on the screen
has fascinated me, touching me this deeply 
without actually ever witnessing it in person.
It speaks beyond the image and the pixels, 
inexplicably reaching something within me, beyond me, 
staying with me even after time has crawled past

It does so by simply being what it is, and of what it has shown me:

An inspiration, a friend, 
a well, a window, hmmm, make that a fascinating door  to things unperceived
A radiant light with soul. 

I see it as a pondering poet with his captivating words and thought,
a feeling artist who chose to paint with vivid lights and energy,
a loving father experimenting with his child about ink and water.

I may not fully understand this Northern Light, it is an enigma
how it moves, how it glows
if there is even a sound that goes with it, or if there is only silence.

Is it crazy how I’ve always wanted to write about this radiance, 
but never found the right words?
I struggle with elucidating it, even now, but I currently try to reflect that glow 
Might be a mediocre attempt, but still from my heart.

I have seen how this brilliance
has touched other people in different ways and magnitudes,
and the emotion rising from within me 
is heartfelt gratefulness,
that I was blessed enough to feel it, 
to catch glimpses of it even for a fleeting while.
No, not in Whitehorse, but only through filters of screen and virtual paper...
But I cherish this beautiful Light with a Soul, 
and I know, I feel that I will alwyas, always do.

Lavender

Beautiful, soft, lavender P E T A L S Fell from the heavens to blanket The cold hard ground The steel and concrete are Soaked, like pillows, from the rain. Like the flower girl before The procession who spreads The warmth with her fingertips, Something, someone dawned on me The truth. And slowly, my heart unthawed. It was no longer callous, No longer cold. I thank the messenger, An angel of sorts, Who injected her wisdom Into my shriveled veins. And brought back The dying hope In what I was living for. Sa aking mahal na bituin. (Filipino)

A Special Friend

I must thank a special friend
For a beautiful poem he wrote
But I believe he gives me to much credit
For what he accomplished on his own.
A beautiful family, a whole new life
And the courage to tell the world of his strife.
In doing so he gives others the faith to take steps on their own 
And begin to rebuild, what they once thought was gone.
God was there for him and if I helped in any way
I thank the Lord He allowed me to lend a hand that day
Tag Mike....We give you our love for now and always.

The Day Dad Planned His Funeral

They said you needed surgery.
You said 'There's business I must do.'
I drove you to the funeral home.
The arrangements were for you.

I had to wait outside that day.
I couldn't go in there.
I don't know how you made those plans.
You showed how much you cared.

You knew you wouldn't make it.
You feared the end was near.
I hate what your life did to you.
I wish you were still here.

How do you plan your funeral? 
Were you as scared as I? 
What were your thoughts heading to the docs? 
Did you know that you would die? 

If I could turn back time and say
the things I'd like to say, 
I'd say 'I love you' and 'I'll miss you.'
'I wish that you could stay! '

Approvals I Should Praise

Approvals I Should Praise

The rhythm of my pen knows no bounds
Its ticks, treks, and steps knows no count.
The songs on my lip just loose the count.
No where, I suppose to untie the bond.

Strong bones are so much in here
They touch and squeeze out letters bountifully.
In these bones, many light I have received gracefully.
Linda is one, Andrea is two among all of you there.

You are all amazing guests in this field
Cup of water..., cup of tea come to toast.
Many hugs, many thanks to you, writ and host.
... Eden that crowns my garden and its yields.

Special parcel to my coy mistress, Linda.
All sea, roses...and sweet showers to you.
And my lady Andrea; always brand new!
I love you all... your words in my wall are tender.

Dedicated to:
 Poetrysoup, 
Poet Destroyer A, 
Andrea Dietrich 
and to the rest of Poetrysoupers.

MY EXTENDED VERSION OF '' MY CONDENSED PRAYER '' by britt

She prays; gods halo again brightly creeping from underneath the shadowed covers of comfort. Slowly awakening her blissful HEArT re*collabrated and re*juvinated to start the day quietly tip-toed inside  her peaceful home. A plantation thats shown to be told,firmly planted is all she'll ever know, thank you god my almighty straight to the LION'S den's mouth, as her heart is poured out in extreme greatness. She announced her DOGS EYE is not in pain anymore. So Thank You god for you are my only GOD!!!! You've engaged this HEArT strongly SHAPPED, I do love me; and the WOMAN I have become. In these last few weeks she has learned GENUINE SOULS do care like you, as parents we will keep her fruitful n' clothed. She'll learn that LOVE IS: more powerful then anything imaginable as you have, you image this world through a precious eye;(my DOG) across the sky in colorful RAE'S of skittles I can taste the RAINBOW... COLLABRATING IN THE CLOUDS... Watching SUN~SET DAWN DOWN fast asleep holding on to those DREAMS along side my dog. Teaching everyone to LOVE with/out SELFishness, just against GRACE For her HEART Is BIGGER Than the UNIVERSE.... As she chooses FREE~WILL!!!!!!
WILLINGLY!!! I Know now her Entire FAMILY HouseHold is in good HEALTH, SAFEly hidden from DANGER N' HARM,and has had A Peacful nights rest beside the warm fire I will lay;as she closes her eyes during nights break.

I LOVE YOU GOD FOR ALL YOu DO N' SHOW!!!

An Ode to Beauty

Hyacinth and juniper
adorned in midmorning dew
alight the fields and meadow fair
as the dawn shimmers from you

Nature weeps with boundless joy
as the sun greets you with its morn
for you are as beautiful as the morning sky
from God's good grace you had to be born

No twinkling star up in heaven cries
as much for you as do I
to be near you would be such bliss
that angels would shudder and sigh

O' of all the gifts that are thrust upon this world
none so pure and delicate can be 
as such pure and delicate as she
for you are my light and my world

"DEVIL WHEN YOU TRY TO PUT DOUBT!!!"

Devil when you try to put doubt
I told Jesus what it was all about.
He has more power than you
I know my Jesus words are true
And everything he says he'll do
He's a miracle worker too.
Jesus is good,and always on time
I'm grateful for this rhyme.
Everything Jesus does is so amazing
That's why it's him I'm forever praising.
And I really can't thank him enough
For being here when things are rough
And keeping me strong,and tough.

No Reasonable Explanation

There’s no suitable explanation for
me- no premise by premise,
with a slight scent of rosed misconceptions
leading to my conclusion.

Scientists? Well they’d have me
believe i’m the effect of some
orgiastic collaboration of molecules. 
But without my mind, i’m lost (and
they cannot fix that with surgery)

skeptics aside, why am I here? What’s
my function?

My function is merely to 
exist.
    To exist within those short breaths 
taken upon the peak of dawn’s smile. Within
the st-studdering flutter of eyelids
during the first sight of love, the first
realization of fate.

I’ve set on this land so the sun can shine 
through my eyes lifting my head to the clouds,
and my arms to the horizon.

And in my moment of pure innocence
and certainty, you look upon and smile.
  and in that brief stare-   
          I exist in you.
I exist for you. Whoever
you are. (morning jogger, tricycle 
warrior, dreamwalker)I am simply here 
For our thin glimpse of truth:
                              that I exist within you
                               as you in me.

God incarnate, I am not.
  But I am given the chance to obtain
God-like attributes. to be a part of Your
life, however miniscule or unimportant.
             I made You smile. I made You 
  laugh. I made You turn. I made You love. 
                          I made   You   exist.

If only for Me               You exist.-

I'd Give You

You've stood by me through everything,
And that really means a lot.
And now it is my turn
To give you all that I've got.

I'd give you a dozen roses,
But what does that really mean?
I'd give you a tractor,
But do you want red or green?

I'd give you a power tool,
But you already have a drill.
I'd give you a million dollars,
But would you leave it in your will?

I'd give you a hat,
But you already have many.
I'd give you a goldfish,
But do you want any?

If I possibly could,
I'd give you all these for a start.
So I'll just give you my love
That comes straight from the heart.

In A World Far Away

As the sun goes down,
in a world far away,
brave men, and women,
are in harms way.
They were sent,
they couldn't back down,
this is their job,
no braver can be found.
I want to thank you,
for taking that stand,
our proud, and brave,
fighting for anothers land.
May God give you comfort,
and hold you so near,
as you help those in need,
chase away all their fears.
I think you are wonderful,
and I want you to know,
God bless our soldiers,
I love you all so.

THANKFULNESS

Your smile has always forced the same upon my face
Your laugh has always caused the same to project from my mouth
 
Your hugs have always made me feel your love
Your kisses have always made me warm
Your hands against mine have always made my heart seem that much bigger
 
I love you with my every breath
And I hope that you realize how thankful I am to have you

Fact and Tale

Between the lines, of fact, and tale,
a persons life, we know not well.
Some insight we have, but not all the truth,
between the lines, read by me, and you.
A release of sort, in our words of rhyme,
our therapy to calm, when we feel like crying.
Days will come, and then they pass,
bringing sunshine, and shadows that last.
Thoughts rekindled from yesterdays mind,
reading the words written from a poet in time.
Miles between, separate our face,
but words of wisdom we daily trace.
Explore the words from everyone here,
although very far, they are always so near.

Thank You

Thank you for being such a good friend.
Thanks for letting your love show.
Thank you for giving me hope for the morrow,
And in Christ may our friendship grow.

I appreciate the way your loving arms
Wrap ‘round me to hug me tight.
I love the way that your beautiful smile
Sheds into my soul God’s light.

Sometimes through the week, when I get down
When the darkest night’s about me.
I look forward to Sunday when
My best friend I get to see.

Thanks once again for being my friend,
And I really hope you know.
We’ll stick together until the end
And in Christ, our friendship will grow.

Mr. Tom

I can't tell you just in my words,
how much you mean to me,
so know without hesitation,
in my heart, you will always be.
Not many people tell you they care,
to busy with their life,
but when I met you,
I knew I had a friend for life.
Although you have problems,
some I may never know,
you always have time,
to make our friendship grow..
 Mr. Tom, you are a friend,
one I cherish so,
may God hold, and protect you,
for we still have miles to go.

How I Want To Live

Sometimes my mind is clouded,
and I can't see through.
I don't know where to turn,
and I don't know what to do.

I'm disappointed in myself
for my grades,
but it was my choice.
It was the game i choose to play.

People make me mad,
and people make me sick,
But i'm always going to ride or die for my man,
because I'm his down ass chick.

I have big dreams 
that I'm going to make come true,
but people don't take me seriously...
...if they only knew!

People upset me, 
and make me mad.
I can't ever seen to please anyone,
while they all seem to make me sad.

Through everything, by my side
is my man...
for I have no doubt that doing my wrong,
is his plan.

I guess this is life,
and this is how it is.
But as long as my man is by my side...
This... is how I want to live.
