I thought it was my imagination, when
I saw it coming,
I felt the warm, intimate air, coming closer
And closer and closer into my left side of my face,
I gave him the instance and manner of His presence
What a pleasant activity to termination
His face was contentment,
What a surprise kiss!
My mind was gratified, since I liked
My facial expression, show it all, when my
Eyes started an ending blinking,
He motion to my left eye, and wipe the
His fellows observe attentively
As he took chocolate in his pocked, and give it to me,
It felt like, it was my first kiss ever…
As we both gave an innocent smile, it was
we danced in the middle of the road,
with no music, only the heartbeat in our hearts present,
pretend like we the only creatures in the planet.
Oh, I was so sad when it was time for me
if only i can get a second chance to dance with him again,
another chance to kiss, to communicate, to share and to love,
my life would be compete.
another chance to share that feeling none can take away.
he emotionally kissed my hand,
And motioned his hands with a fake and unpleasing
Goodbye, he was sad,
But we both knew that we’ll see one another,
Soon, before the next flight!
When the car was in motion, he gave me a quick smile
and inner pierce of his beautiful eyes
Kiss goodbye, I smiled
Kiss goodbye I thought
Kiss goodbye, he’s gone
Kiss goodbye it is.

Slowly so sneakily you crept into my life
Destroying everything in your path
You simply don’t care do you?
Leaving your slime everywhere
Eradicating everything you touch
Moving on to your next innocent victim
You revolt me and I detest the sight of you
I heaved when I saw you today
Well I’ve got news for you
I know your little game and ITS OVER
I’ve put the pellets down and you are trapped
Goodbye slug forever

Because he no more loves me,
I will have to go back to my solitude -
my only friend, before I met him.
Now, today after many years in love
he is throwing my adoration
through a severe hurricane;
forgetting to protect me.
My man - the only man
I have ever loved;
he no more loves me. Why?
Suddenly, all my expectations
gone to another continent,
even to another atmosphere -
anywhere, but here with me.
He no more loves me. Why?
How I wish, this very moment
to be invisible,
As my dreams and thoughts
are turning into hatred.
He no more loves me. Why?
Sobbing is echoing louder
than the silence surrounding
my dark room.
I will be living patiently out of love.
He no more loves me.
I am never included in any of his plans,
neither those of yesterday, today, or tomorrow.
How I wish to remember
only the good times we had together;
but now, there is no present or future
Because he loves me no more.
I am old, and have not
Much time left.

I've never thought that i would feel this way,
But it finally happened somehow someday;
And i drowned in the deep oceans that looked at me.
I got dazzled by this smile everytime i see
These petals opening softly revealing wonderful pearls;
And everytime this breeze fonndles my skin, my heart twirls.
How i wish to stay forever in this acropolis of passion!
How i admire those two loyal guards fulfilling their mission!
Look at the heavens sparkling in those skies
Making it hell when it comes to goodbyes...
But some dreams are meant to never come true,
Like the one of falling asleep next to you
Because, as they say, the moon is not allowed to rise on the majestic wooden cross
But what a shame of this culture and what a terrible loss...
I had to accept to fall back on earth
A place where cruelty took birth!
Even though they broke my wings, i'll climb as high as i can get
To try and find the heavens that i would never forget.

Shaking earth, you call me? Can I say, some moment please?
Just had my meal, pretending to sleep
The hustle of life-chants me a lullaby, helping me to forget the lows
This small hut, my modest abode- Made of clay, a part of your life.
It’s trembling now, falling into pieces
I am not asking for more, I know it’s yours- the soil and we mortals both
The air we breathe and the sound of wind- this and more and henceforth
But can’t bear the pain, the fellows cry, how can you show no empathy
Just had my meal, pretending to sleep
Can I say, some moment please?

A road going along the river
that is calm and long
the width varies with time
the tide swallows the ride
The motion of water
is curling up and down
with the ripples and gorges
I do not care for reasons any longer
but it had made me stronger
I could think of moving ahead now
and live king size the plough
Myself had been stunted by the time itself
A faith alive with the shine and rhyme
I do not know the care of causes any more
The life goes by like anything that strands
Just how long it had been is not the question
but it had been a bit favoured
just wish to move ahead and do something now
A Lot has been left behind like a low and rusty crown.

*The Heart of Balmville
A living thing I was; I graced your land.
Three hundred years and more, I stood with pride.
A focal point to meet with friends to stand,
or drive the intersecting roads beside
the wall that sheltered me, your blessed tree,
you thought long-standing for eternity.
The 'Heart of Balmville' often you called me;
so many grew up in my view's embrace,
and took for granted that my vision be
forever etched within this Balmville space.
Inside your small historic park I stood
preserved for years in my dear ancient wood.
My statuesque magnificence now gone...
your hearts are saddened, missing my great limbs.
But with my stump, may memories hold on
while picture of my leaves and branches dims.
May 'Heart of Balmville' live within your heart...
I, Balmville Tree, at last from you depart.

In the dusk shadow and light
Shimm‘ring dark and glancing bright
The last of times they see both sides
In different worlds they do reside
The time to say their last goodbyes
Both know that what they‘re doing‘s right
For shadows live in darkness well
And light in brightest heavens dwell
A last refrain, a sense of pain
Maybe someday they'll meet again
The shadow then turned to a spark
To guide all shadows in the dark
The light returned into the sky
To flash the shine, high up to fly

kiss midnight goodbye and watch its dark petals float away on the night breeze,.kiss
midnight goodbye and bask in the rays of the morning sun.,render the past gone and wash
in the dew of your dawn. Kiss midnight goodbye and with it the queen of the stars and her
banquet ...,I kiss midnight goodbye and embrace my new beginning because in your eyes i
see the map of my world.. I watch everything come to ease in a stare,the other side of
darkness,painless and no less beautiful. A wordless understanding but an understanding
none the less.,comforting;But not of my lamentations but of my subconsious need..a
seemingly ever present presence..the pen of my thoughts.

Richer than rich!
By Stanley Russell Harris
The new mad Author
& A Poetry Soup honourably mentioned poet
Has football gone completely mad!
A sport of all now to be had!
Boys and girls play it today.
I wonder, is it for the pay?
Talk is now, if one does go.
To China, that’s overseas, you know.
If here you have made your name.
There you would be one of fame.
I mean a million pounds every week!
No doubt one will work, so to speak.
But kicking an air filled ball.
Ain’t worth one million pounds at all!
Still, if I was offered a payment so.
Off I would blinking go.
I’d write a verse every day!
Rest of the time I’d count me pay.
