They just don't know how to apologize, do they?
Giving something that's prone to finger bleeds
and even chunkier thighs.
I'll give you the Golden Rule:
with situations like this
it is sure to apply.
An idea I propose (if I may be so bold):
give me a week without seeing your face
and a day without hearing your voice.
Heartbroken women everywhere agree
that it truly is the safest choice!
I don't need a second bouquet
or another box of sweets so chocolatey.
Seeing you suffer for what you did
is without a doubt the greatest therapy!



But of course      Don't despair
Eventually you'll be forgiven
Give it space      Give it time
When you return it will be sublime
a peck on the cheek
"Honey, can you fix the bathroom sink,
it hasn't been greased

... in at least a week."




NOTE: For all you women out there that have to put up with us silly men.

I just wanted to let you know
That I have this love for you...
Although I'm not fast to show
For you, there's nothing I wouldn't do
And I can't control this love
No matter what I try to do...

While I know our lives are separating
Which has got me pretty blue
I just want you to know
How much I love you...

Because I was blinded by shyness
And now my heart's feeling rugged
So this here's An Ode To My Beloved 

Oh how I still see you every night in my mind
You're the best girl I feel I'll ever find
And when my eyes would fall upon your smile
My heart would be put on trial
And so if nothing else, I want to let you know
That I'll always love you, that my hearts beat
For you, won't ever slow...

Because I was blinded by shyness
And now my heart's feeling rugged
So this here's An Ode To My Beloved 

So I wish you happiness beyond compare
And sorry for the times I couldn't help but stare
Caring, passionate, smart, and loving
From my heart, to you, I'll never be shoving

You will always be in my heart
No matter where we go, how far we drift apart...

Goodbye My Love...

A warm tear in my eye
As I just wonder why
Why you had to leave me, fly away far
Now for you, alone, I wish to our star

There's so many love songs
I'll play them all, and think of you
I loved everything you were
Loved everything you do

Rise and shine on another day, with you away
All alone I am now, with nothing much to say
Your face is always in my mind
As I dream of the best I'll ever find

These Words To You, my love
I'll write them in a letter
And seal it with a kiss
In hopes that I'll feel better
To the one I miss

Girls that don't ask for much
Oh how they deserve it all
And as this love was such
She's leading to my fall

Her big beautiful eyes
A bold and loving brown
Still makes my heart fly
But still makes my lips frown

And that dirty golden hair
Always tied neatly back
So smooth and curly and long
Got my heart out of whack

These Words To You, my love
I'll write them in a letter
And seal it with a kiss
In hopes that I'll feel better
To the one I miss

Details | Dramatic monologue |
One day at a time
With the delusion of anger,
falling from my eyes,
The veil of bitterness,
Torn from the one I despised,
My heart withers in my chest
The spell that cast a shadow on this beauties shimmering frame
That hid a wonder a mystery this woman bearing my name.
I cannot believe I’ve lived alongside you for so long
And missed the chorus of a lover’s  refrain.
We like strangers in the night
Ships passing by on a foggy sea,
Have rediscovered each other again,
Fearful yet wanting, the task ahead daunting,
Forever changed by the crimson stain,
Leaving us equipped in ways we can never explain.
One day at a time, we live for these moments,
One day at a time, is all we are given,
And by the grace of God our one day at a time will turn into memories
That we will share over a lifetime.

This One Girl,
Every night she greets me
In my arms she rests
No one else's around, we're free
Time's standing still, a sweet caress

This One Girl,
I've always loved the most
We've gone our separate ways
To two distant, far away coasts
To spend the rest of our days

This One Girl,
I'm not knowing if her face
I'll ever see again
Or if of her, I'll ever find another trace
But still all my love, her way, I'll send

This One Girl,
There's just something about her
A magic to her ways
Making my heart stir
She's got me in a daze

How John Mayer helped end and save my marriage..     S.Hudson

Our love can be summed up in a playlist of John Mayer songs,
A myriad of one liners and chorus’ overlaying the template of life,
Our  “heart break  warfare”  led to a horrible affair,
She and another took solace in a shared love for John Mayer,
They dreamed together with “Half of my heart” playing in the distance,
“Showing me another way” ,
But a dream is all it could be, and a dream is all it was,
The “Gravity” of the situation realized,
And a husband missing all of his heart.
Two worlds pulling at the hem,
“Pain throws your heart to the ground, Love turns the whole thing around,”
It is said, we have lived together through both my wife,
And I don’t know, “If I trust myself with loving you”,
But, “I’m not the man I used to be lately”
And here we are now,
Trying to recapture this “Home life” John muses of.
“I’d love to walk where we both can talk”, I’d love to give you my all,
“Oh it’s taking so long, I could be wrong, I could be ready, Oh but if I take my hearts advice,
I should assume it’s still unsteady, I am in repair, I am in repair,”
For know we stand with our heart in the others hand, fragile, unsteady, unsure,
But oh so willing.
All I know Rhonda is, “There ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone”
“My girl she ain’t the one that I saw comin,” I “love who ya love, who ya love”
That’s  YOU!
I thank you John Mayer for giving us the words and the playlists for 
This roller coaster of emotion, heartbreak, passion, romance and desire,
That has been our Story line.
Keep em coming, because we still have a lifetime of Romancing and store walks ahead…

My love and I
We decided to go for a midnight stroll
Gaze up at the birds in the sky
And watch the time slowly roll

So by the park, the two of us, together
Walked through this world, we'll change it, make a stand
I will love this girl forever
We're all alone tonight, Hand In Hand

She embraced the world, nature was her passion
Her eyes drowning with love and life
A traditional girl, not caught up by the latest fashion
I know she'd make a beautiful mother, and wife

She asked if I loved her that night
So I took her up to a hill, overlooking the land
As she, It was a beautiful sight
And I kissed her lips, Hand In Hand

What happens when two are destined to drift 
Slowly forever apart?

They'll tell each other of crossing paths again
One day, that this is just a new start!

Time marches on though
While these two meet many others...

But to their first true love
They won't ever forget...

Because their hearts, for each other
Have been Locked In And Set

the dusky clouds eastward, slowly sailing
a chiling breeze from the trees wailing
the goldfinch, scared of dark, hiding
leaving me to the night without singing

everything in the open is gloomy, neglected
streets void of moving souls, stark naked
and while  the night lets down the curtain
night shadows steal out quietly to frighten

i light the soul's candle and drown in wonder
a soft light and the silence adequete in my chamber
past times and heydays were first to remember
to journey thru a trance by the light of the candle

papers, bits of sheets to highlight the drama
sink in the souvenirs of devine poetic coma
relish the dreams, pink and red in sweet aura
of poetic sleep, deeply in some mystic nirvana

mirth cut through by a storming thunder
the joys faded away like misty summer
sleet and hail showered from silver heaven
Winter's uprising, Autumn a soldier defeated


whiles by a candle light years of mirth
revival of feelings after romantic dearth
warmth of the silky dreams once we did
to innocence of  childhood, farewell i bid

He sat himself down on the edge that evening with the gravest of sadness trickling with his tears and a whimper that shook his body. As he fixed his position to one more suitably comfortable, he watched as his legs languidly wandered with the strong evening breeze. The blue evening sky shimmered off the water below, above whom birds flocked as they admired themselves as they glided in graceful harmony. The young man, admiring the birds as they fluttered, watched helplessly as his tears fell- in hope that they would make tiny ripples in the calm river hundreds of feet below. As he stared listlessly in the depths of the river, with whom a dark blue colour glimmered, he wandered whether it's darkness marked a towering depth. As he questioned such thoughts, he clutched his chest sorrowfully and tried to distract his attentions to the nearby cars as they exalted weary noises in their locomotion on the bridge. Not wanting to be any more of a nuisance than he was compelled to believe, he tried spiritedly not to pay attention to the banquette of horns rearward, as he thought it non-polite to engage with passing drivers who drove their cars on such an elevated road whose height pierced clouds asunder. He placed his hand in his pocket as it struggled from the powerful wayward breeze, and took out his wallet. Grasping the photo of his love as further tears graced his cheeks, he turned it around and examined the note on the back which read: "I shall always love you, for all eternity". On reading her avowal and watching his tears douse the picture,  he smelled her photo; which retained a small monument of her rosy scent, and he sniffled sullenly. He stood to his feet and relinquished the photo as he watched it descend in a flittered free-fall. Suddenly he was struck and echoes of gunfire palpitated the evening air as motorists watched helplessly, and the young man tumbled as his body rotated with the gun as it perforated the breeze below and hit the water with an almighty blow.After a few minutes, the waters calmed and caught his body as it sank to mighty depths. 
He now slept, and romance was now at peace and she smiled as she accosted herself with the forever knowledge that the young lover now danced in towering depths, unloved, for all eternity.

Oh! I hear the bells toll again,
The morning birds awaken,
And my night is gone!!
Oh! let me sleep on,
The moon has lost her struggle,
Against the sun's pitiless dazzle,
The stars like fallen warriors, 
Are interred without honours,
The nightingale's soporific melody,
Is drowned in the noise of anarchy,
The ambience so cool and pure,
Has turned too sweltry to endure,
I keep my eyes shut tight,
For in them I retain a slice of night.

Once my love I dreamed to well
Of all that silence doeth entail
The hush and gentle quivering
Of midnight and the shivering
Of moon beneath the maddened night
Of moons celestial candlelight
There a morbid moon and gloom
And all the darkness that is doom
Should sweep in silence o’er my soul
And find me less that time ago
Less than times more dismal space
Which no candor can erase
Less than times unclosing eye
Gazing on a distant wry

Once my love I dreamed to well
Likes roses on a distant knell
Do bloom with red resplendidly
Do blush and then conceive

Once my love I dreamed to well
Of all that silence doth entail
The doleful sorrow and its sound
Like a whisper never found
Like a whisper on the height
Of romance in its plight
Far beyond the stolid trees
Far beneath the wake of eve
Where in the vast and distant deep
Only shadows subtly creep,
Once my love I dreamed to well

Pinkish red, reddish pink, their radiance phenomenal.
Curves aplenty, arched up reveals my beloved.
Fall down and I shall lift them up from the ground.
Sadly, dark clouds in white lay claim to them.
Within three months, they will come for them regardless.
As your lips turn pale, my heart utters a wail.
Stiffen that upper lip, everyday I will sing you to sleep.
Until a touch of cold, your lips turned gold.
I am fortunate enough to kiss them a final goodbye.
Their radiance and warmth will never escape my memories.
For I shall long to see them when I cross that road.

I never thought I'd fall in love again this much
Feeling so wonderful was there ever a world as such
You brought me back to live a life I had longed for
'Coz when you came you opened the heaven's door

The sun has shone again in the darkest of my days
Gave light that strengthened me in so many ways
Everything around look different, full of love and satisfaction
Then you saw what's inside me, you gave me direction

Never heard the music sound so sweet and lovely
Feels like I'm floating with its every beat gladly
The rhythm that we danced spelled a different tune
Of intense joy that made me reached for the moon

Because of you I have learned how to dream
To think of the future that has started to dim
You opened up my eyes, I realized things I could be
You've showed me reality and you have loved me for me

You are the only one who keeps me going
Now the world seems to stop because you are leaving
I don't know what life awaits without you beside me
Would you stay? I need your love to complete me

And though it hurts for I have to let go again
Nothing's gonna stop me to love you for certain
I'll just imagine having you so close and hugging you so tight
Please hold on baby, I'll be waiting for you with all my might

Was e’er a moment held so calm,
To dull and silhouette our lives,
Like Tithoneus weeping with the dawn,
Should find Elysium in those eyes

Uncloth’d, my mind in tearful thoughts concedes,
A vision of thee ‘neath the moon,
I gently press my will toward thee,
And ever vex my soul with you

Yea! Thy beauty finds me vex’d,
As tho’ some poet never told,
With words, yet eloquently breath’d,
Of all the wonders that ye hold

One roseate portrait of your smile,
Like an opera well rehears’d,
Sets this savage soul on fire,
And bids me as the desert thirst

My passions know no other bounds,
Like silhouettes these words confine,
My soul, one tear opaques me now,
And births an opera in my mind

One vision how the Nile runs,
Strange goddess to this tear,
In other moments melts the sun,
And then thy beauty with the night appears!

When the moon at midnight breaks
My heart is sorrow aches
Tis like the depths of dismal sea
Where dismal runs the memory
Memory like a shadow cast
On epic portions of the past
There my dreams awake again
Dreams that never end
Dreams of sorrow and of woe
Dreams of midnight’s darkest tow
There the shadows linger on
As the echo’s of a song
Song like shadow how it sings
Sweet the misery that it brings
And if a doleful hour should be cast
To frame for me the very past
My heart in beating should refrain
Lest the moment is lived again!

The sea she waits for me
With breath as deep as memory
And when the shadows run
Upon the sonnets of her face
I find no hour can replace
The season that is she
Though fall and winter’y air awake
For there are seasons like to sea
Not summer sweetness or fall in memory
But tis a season in the soul
Like sea whose depth we cannot know
Thus sea when midnight takes the world
And its depth seems deeper still
I find my mortal spirit stirred
By depths of season like to her
Thus there is season, and there is sea
Both by reason seem to me
Like she who waits for me
Like sea with wave hypnotically
--like sea I know she waits for me
With depth I cannot reach.
