Melodies of the heart

In a black and white world, feathered fingertips caress ebony and ivory keys - melodically forming a myriad of vibrant and vivid hues, diversifying dulcet emotive reflections. In a world of spoken falsehood, expressions that cannot be spoken, aid each truthful touch to narrate speechless secret serenades. For soulmates who choose to listen, minds allure to the grace of mellifluous sentimental symphonies, harmonising hollow hearts through tantric vibrations, gently echoing to soothe sorrowful soundless souls. Rhapsodic pianist strokes satin white skin, tunefully kissing black lustrous lips. Hearts play music secretly establishing spiritual connections. Ivory and ebony rectangles dance in eternal kindred devotion, igniting spirits to whirl to the rhythm of sensual sensations. Last note leads to another healed composition as departing flames of passion illuminate lovers paths. A blank page appears at the end of the song sheet. Tired pianist fingers rest as the mind is absent of lyrics, paralysed to play a melody for its own suppressed heart. Lost, pondering mute tears which fail to cleanse its soul., The Silent One 9 January 2018

Poem Ingredients

Many ingredients bake writing inspiration This recipe combines a stirring sensation: Heaps of desires never realized as marinated in teary sore eyes; Quantities of wide open spaces caramelized by nature’s appeal; Ageless genuine emotional traces sifted thru heart rendered graces; Equal parts family and romantic love as roasted within, without and above; Measured creamed ideals of peace with blanched pain and battle grease; Diced wishes braised with thrill bearing aromas of tangy heat or chill; Slices of awe from a glorious tree breaded with traits strong and free; I do not forget sour spices of greed dusted with mankind’s violent seed; A mix of fears dredged in anxiety with stress jelled in complexity; and, lastly faith garnished spirit grown in a soul conscious thicket. If able, I mix love with ingredients above before sampling my recipe once warmed up. If savory, I serve it in Soup’s poetry cup.

Midnight walk

Vibrant twilight colours drain from transcending skies. Black velvet blankets remain; luminous stars rise. Tread lightly, darkness is here. Such an eerie night, promise me to remain near; be my guiding light. Shadows begin to appear, under the bright moon. Be silent, they may hear can we go home soon? In your arms, one becomes safe, feeling warm in your embrace. Simple glimpse of your face takes me to that magic place. Tranced, you gaze into my eyes. Hunter with his prey in sight; preparing to claim his prize. One is powerless to fight. Lost are all inhibitions as hands are placed on my hips. Forgotten tribulations as you kiss my virgin lips. Daylight brings a halt to this romantic rendezvous. Abrupt end to luscious bliss as reality breaks through. Silent One Originally written 18 March 2016 Re-posted 16 January 2018

Simple words of love

No need for a special day
to adorn you with affection.

For when love had forgotten me,
you arrived during Spring's bloom,
floating like a petal from the heavens.

I can remember Whispers from tepid winds, 
led me to willow trees, bowing to your grace.
I still remember crystal clarion blue skies,
an eternal reminder of our first glance,
and the enchantment in your eyes.

But you say:

"The pen needs no metaphors,
just write simple words of love."

The pen flows like simple musing streams;
(oops a metaphor)

So, here goes in the most simplest words.
You are the answers to those questions I could not find.
What my heart yearned for in others, it found in you.
No confusion remained, as suppressed emotions flowed.
Your whole existence was conveyed through my poetry .

How I wish to forever stay in that moment,
the first time our love turned into reality.
Without speaking a word, 
my heart felt like we were not strangers.

You're still the one, only you.
The one who knows, the one who understands.
With you stormy seas calm and all that is lost is found.
With you in the world, nothing else matters.
I can't say it simpler..... Than I am Yours.

My Love Endures

As steadfast as the sea
Pounding its symphony
Making love to the shore
Always reaching for more
My love endures

As stars that grace the sky
Sung in sweet lullaby
Firmament jewelry
Bequeathed to you and me
My love endures

As mountains that remain
Which mysteries contain
That stand the test of time
God’s sentinels sublime
My love endures

As searing as the sun
Placed to rule everyone
Who daily journey makes
With warmth that nature wakes
My love endures

My love endures
Through all changing seasons
Through all unknown reasons
Through all the storms and strife
Through all that threatens life
Through portals of the grave
Through the gates of the saved
MY love ENDURES

Eileen Manassian

PS…this is a romantic love poem, but it is an echo of Psalm 136 which is a testament to the greatest love one can ever experience….the love of the Almighty! 

Psalm 136
1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever
to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
5 who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
6 who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures forever.
7 who made the great lights—
His love endures forever.
8 the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
9 the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever

A Silent Song


"A Silent Song"

Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Blessed or cursed
Morning shave
Coffee please
Write a verse
Remembers last night’s dream
Grabs a napkin, spills his spleen
Shoves it in his pocket
Walks to work
Sits at his desk
Carries on as usual
Chats on with the new study, 
he’s on a roll, softly flirts
Quietly, silently, it always works
Groundhog Day that’s the worst,
Where’s the breaker to dive under it all
Every now and then a Tempest is called for
A heavenly thunderous squall
Just to shake it up
Move through the strung out long day pall
Cover his mirror with her fog and all

All the while
He’s talking it up, little work day dramas
Meetings minute cutlass pen thrust
Business as usual, balls to bust
Still underneath it all he’s thinking the stories frame by frame
She whispers out of nowhere ethereal in his brain,
“The best story is yet to arrive, it’s only the middle of the day…
maybe some gold glitter, a Llama and a Toucan that sashays?”

Empath on his knees by midnight
He’s writing melancholic love songs
The words are tight, verses short 
Not long, he’s thinking Turtle Doves and short skirts
That won’t work…
scrawls it out, writing’s gone with the wind, 
The best words for the story don’t take too long
He listens to some music, thinks of her and sings a new song.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Dreams flourish dripping words
black on white her familiar screen
pounding faster like raging horses hooves and heart beats
bleed vibrant colors mystic legions of wars and lovers
a foreign sovereignty her mind and wily covers her pageantry
Her eyes the windows of her world
Wings beating flying free 
Cages broken, horses hooves racing hearts
She follows him on another shore a dream by sea
Praying prophecies
Empath on her knees

Two very different minds
Free to be

Appear My Queen At The Pier

As the life of the day nears its last breath,
With a glow of crimson, forewarning its death,
Upon its cresting, the reflection, daunting,
The sea sets free a beauty, haunting
The depths of its treasures of unknown span,
The Queen Of Pearls, secluded from man.

This queen, a beauty of figure, a maiden so fair,
With glistening gold locks finer than Pele's hair
And eyes that blend with her homing sea green,
Lips sweeter than honey for a honeycomb's queen,
Once a fortnight, this Queen Of The Sea,
As Mr. Moon swoons, she comes for me.

I wander each eve along the sea's shore,
When near is the time, I long, live for,
Watching intently for the tell tale sign
Of soon again, she will be mine.
Though my patience is tried over many a night,
I know very soon the time will be right.

"Will I see her again; will she come out?"
Puncturing my heart with needles of doubt,
Is fear I'm pained with before each time we meet,
As though and worse than gripped by mesquite.
Then as the tide comes in, over the incoming foam,
For an auspicious clue, my eyes desperately roam.

The sign, the signal, I must not miss
For I can taste so sweet her magical kiss.
My heart couldn't take the grief of such woe,
If I were to become no longer her beau.
The pressure is on, for surrounding me
Is somewhere a message, elusive, a mystery.

Each time the message comes in by way of unique,
For I must earn and prove I'm worthy to seek
This maiden so fair of beauty unsurpassed
And continually I must, if our Love is to last.
Only one common factor am I to ever know;
A pearl will appear, in some way show.

Her signature, a pearl, confirms her request
And one of the finest, only the best.
My Love is not just a queen of the deep sea;
She is the Queen Of Pearls, her royal majesty.
Sometimes I wonder why it is I she chose,
But it's a secret kept, for the sea only knows.

Once a seagull brought and dropped one in the sand,
From the sky above, next to me to on purpose land.
Another time, a sea lion rolled in with the tide
And flipped a pearl to me as he winked with pride.
Yet, another time, I was beckoned out into the sea,
By a whale that spouted a pearl then straight to me.

As my anxiety grows to an unbearable state
And just when I feel I can no longer wait,
With flippers anchored and a look of daring,
In a coat of gold, his mischief, baring,
I knew at once that what I sought
Was now before me with a troubling thought.

For I knew a challenge he had predesigned,
To acquire this pearl would take wit of mind.
Since my heart's condition was at stake,
I had no room for error nor one mistake.
What would be tempting too much for him;
Catch him off guard to forfeit the gem?

Through files of thoughts I ran a quick scan,
Searching to find the one fool proof plan.
Then he made a face at me and straight away
It triggered a thought from a yesterday,
When Andre, the seal, harboured a 'tude,
He stuck out his tongue and blew to be rude.

So, like Andre I leaned in and did the same,
At the seal's face, I took a precise aim.
I stuck out my tongue and blew in his face.
Surprised, he hadn't time to against me, brace.
The temptation too great, he returned the favour
And the pearl became mine only to savour.

Though he was unhappy he had been tricked,
I was elated as my dilemma had been licked.
With all my strength, clenched in my fist
Was my ticket to passion when I was kissed
By my maiden of Love to meet on the pier,
Where soon now I knew she would appear.

As though on wings, my feet did fly
To the pier in waiting where at last, I
Would be joined in Love with my queen,
As soon as she appeared upon the scene.
When I arrived, she was waiting there
To rise out of the sea, my maiden, fair.

As she rose, I pulled her so close to me
And as we locked our lips, she magically
Transformed into a lady, full human form,
Extraordinary and far from norm.
We danced, made Love; laughed and cried,
Baring all of our emotions from inside.

No moment was wasted, no second in time,
In sync we were with both rhythm and rhyme.
But time flies by too quickly it seems,
When you're with the only star of your dreams.
All too soon a new day was being born
And a sun of gold was greeting the morn.

As she stood on the pier elegantly dressed,
All onlookers couldn't have ever guessed
That my lady, my queen, lived in the sea
And transformed back, she soon would be.
As we were saying our sad good-bye,
A flock of witnesses then flew by.

Letting her go each time to return to the deep,
Is harder than the promise to her I made to keep.
Though I'm elated with joy, new memories made,
I must again for a fortnight through longing, wade.
As she slips quietly back into the waiting sea,
My tears like rivers, shower her adoringly.

The returning back to my homing place,
With my tears washing my distraught face,
I clutch the pearl, the precious stone,
And seek only now with myself to be alone.
Since there's nothing better than the best,
I can only look forward to her next request.

I hear a persistent knock upon my door,
As I awaken, for me, someone's looking for.
At first confused, I glanced around,
As again came that knocking sound.
"What a dream of fantasy. Wow!" I thought.
But then a pearl from my dream along I'd brought...

Lullaby Loving You



Another awake,
another empty dawn awaits
Nothing to look forward to
at the end of the day
A lonely walk,
giving myself a coffee pep talk
Then your morning glow
gave my eyes a proper bright hello
Oh, beautiful butterfly
with the sunflower smile
Fluttering by
in rainbow polka dot style
I saw you land 
on a park bench in Belle Isle,
sitting alone for a little while
So I made a smooth gardener move,
and gently planted myself next to you
A budding conversation then ensued ...
my goodness, how quickly things grew
Love petals in my heart blossoming anew,
I now understand some rain is necessary too
Though the seasons have changed,
my feelings for you remains the same
Blissful evenings in my life ... sunset skies with a golden hue

Every night, 
I have pillow dreams
of lullaby loving you

In the moonlight,
I dream of sunbeams
Me lullaby loving you

Then I awake the next day,
daydream waiting to meet you
all over again

Detroit daydreaming 
every night
Pillow sighs
of lullaby loving you

Romantic moonlighting
every single night
Sunbeam thoughts
of me lullaby loving you

Then I awake the next day,
daydream wanting to meet you
for the first time to begin


Dedicated to my beloved friend, Kee

Night Eyes Dreaming - Collaboration with Brenda Chiri



Collaborative creation of Merged pens
w/the talented Poetress Brenda Chiri 




Mesmerized by the allure
of a satin velvet kissable embrace
Rose lips wet whispering
chocolate fondue candlelight dreams
Silhouetted moans ... embroidery glow
of a pastel iris earth bed,
straddled by a silvery smile crescent moon
Night eyes looking down,
daydreaming of anticipated love arriving
A spent dawn isn’t coming too soon
Time stands still in the middle of a creamy midnight
Heart throated moans ... waves of ecstasy
Tidal pleasure ebb and flows,
daydreaming of you merging into me
I see your night eyes aroused ... sensual awakening  

Laying with silver moon beams streaming thru the window
Waking me to watch,
as it dances over your beautiful ebony body
You call them night eyes ... looking down I see it now
Synchronicity reveals itself
coming in recurring patterns of sequences around me
During these times, 
the universe mysteriously 
make us 
the center of its agenda 
Allowing us to move together as one in this night of our souls
Writing us into this cosmic wonder, as it continues to unfold for us
Ecstasy is ours 
in those ebb and flow of waves, 
as cries pass full lips
Dreaming of mine lips 
stiflng those cries as we look into night eyes dreaming....

Spending the best days of our lives

days of glass...days of glass
The sky was painted grey...
days of clay...days of clay

The hands of time, have been kind,
but sometimes...
the wind blows cold..the wind blows cold

River of tear's

My love for you flow's like a river. It's that cool winters breeze that makes my soul shiver. To see that smile upon your face. My heart can rest from giving chase. To feal your lips pressed against mine. Run my finger tips down your spine. The feal of your skin so silky smooth. I know I'll win there's tomuch to lose. I once saw your eye's shine with glea. My foolish lies that chased you from me. For all these years i've had you to hold. Now from all these tears my face grows cold.How can I tell you about all this? How can I show you these things I miss? Like an arrow my love is true. Maybe tomarrow I'll know what to do. As for now I'll sit here and shiver. Wondering how to stop this tear filled river.

Never Land Of Indulgence revised version

Oh if i had the wings of an eagle
i would swoon to pick you up
and take you to a place
i call never land
where passion is the beverage
that  parched lips taste
where scorching love cascade
never are your desires gratified 100%
they are continually foraged
upon the bed of elation
diminish burdens and be uninhibited 
let go of all your encumbrances
let me my love liberate your mind and soul
as i take you on a fervent journey
that will tantalize your very essence
and trigger an excruciating nostalgia
that only can be pacified by I

Dedicated To You

Engulfed by all my
thoughts of you,
My mind remained
in constant bliss,
But very soon it
thought it through,
And realized who
my heart had missed

You are the epitome
of loveliness,
You personify all of
beauty's sweet,
And not to mention
your tenderness,
And all the divinity
your body keeps

You paint me full
with passion red,
And other colors
brightly new,
Like golden grace and
whitening wed,
But never colored
sadden blue

So hold my heart
and you will be,
Amazed at all its
beauty through,
But I am sure that
you will see,
The heart you hold
is really you

Romantic Love

Yesterday is tomorrow’s today
In this game of life we play

In the game of life we chance
All we have on romance

Shake the dice then let them roll
Cross the bridge then pay the toll

Make a wish upon a star
Then let them see who you are

Open your heart and face the task
Open your soul and lose your mask

Let romance light the fire
That is forever fueled by desire

Let your words be honest and true
Be the things you say and do

And most of all for the one you love
Live your life for the Lord above

Through his love your romantic endeavor
Will be blessed and last forever

And that’s a true gift by the Lord above
For nothing is better than romantic love

From My Lips to Santa's Ears

Dearest Santa, my one wish may seem strange, but please do not interpret me as snide. I wish this kindness, so please do arrange my Christmas gift of a mail order bride. Surely such would lighten my hard work load, help with the children and spousal demands. She can be pretty or favor a toad as long as it’s English she understands. I fail domestic perfection with house, Mom affection with little ones each day and attending His Lordship, my own spouse, because my to-do list stays in the way. Again, this may seem most unorthodox, but, this is me, thinking outside the box. I know that you must judge, weigh and ponder if I was a well-behaved girl this year. I tried leaving home for the far yonder - the car died before even driveway clear. I lace my morning coffee with brandy, hide my husband’s tickets to pro baseball, hide chips in sofa when comes Priest Andy and may ignore my children when they call. Sometimes I name dust bunnies left on floor. Sarcasm is my fav go to coping tool. I cheat at cards when writing down my score and past June, I peed in the public pool. I work hard without results all day long, so sometimes, yeah, I get this life all wrong. I wish to remember why I am here; recall romantic love that started all. I could succeed if I had a wife-peer helping with spousal gall and toddler brawls. I want more than bathtubs layered with dirt and stinking trash bordering on a spill, let someone else produce an ironed shirt and seek deep sleep as an ambitious thrill. I want memories of kids where I smile and husband conversations standing still. I seek family love for feel worthwhile lest I seek happy docs with happy pills. One or both of us can wed my wished her, Santa, please concur and do not defer.

The Chronicle of Lost Lovers






"The Chronicle of Lost Lovers"
Lionheart, kindred spirit, my dear Confederate Ghost, Golden Light emits clandestine hearts’ swinging lanterns. Tis shadow play on love struck phantoms - Pendulum incense imprints the air, "The Chronicle of Lost Lovers".
Breathe into each other intoxicating Passionflowers, they walk naked through some enchanted sleep. Drink dew from sweet satin skinned hollows, 'tis the foxing hour in "Lost Love Woods"
Plunge deep into her Ocean, thy ravishing tempest. Hold tight her hand, for a Lionheart can drown in her immortal siren song, she is your longest quest. Dip your quill into her ink, your now lost Lionheart. Love Lost, reverse.
In the Maze of Life, lost love meets as LIGHT through scenes of cracked time. Lionhearts and Tempests, lie naked in their dreams, ne'er rhymes.
(Lovejoy-Burton/2018 Jan)

“This is what I believe: That I am I. That my soul is a dark forest. That my known self will never be more than a little clearing in the forest. That gods, strange gods, come forth from the forest into the clearing of my known self, and then go back. That I must have the courage to let them come and go. That I will never let mankind put anything over me, but that I will try always to recognize and submit to the gods in me and the gods in other men and women. There is my creed.” D.H. Lawrence
