Setting Myself Free

I still see your smile
Though I haven't seen it in a while
Now that I have I feel some type of way
All it takes is a message one random day
You been gone from my life for so long
And now that you're here I doubt where I belong
It wasn't a problem before
Didn't think I cared anymore
Yet now I find you constantly on my mind
My own escape I cannot find
Lost in these streets full of direction
And for what…a little of your affection?
Wondering if it's all worth the pain
Knowing now nothing from it will I gain
Yet still thoughts of you won't leave me alone
No matter what I do to get them gone
Those thoughts run as deep as the ocean blue
But you still refuse to love me too
I try and find peace in the beauty of the land
Only to find it's you I don't understand
What more can one person do
I've done all I can to prove my love to you
But  just as hard as the bricks I used
To protect a heart that had been so abused
It may have been able to keep the pain away
Yet still it's something I fight each and every day
Trying to tell myself I get a little stronger with time
Attempting to believe it's not just another rhyme
I take a second look only to see
That these words I write continue to remind me
Of a love I use to own
Night or day I could call you on the phone
But then as the next song begins to play
I feel a tear making its way
Down my once dry cheek
Once again when it comes to you I feel so weak
Unsure what all this might mean
Caught somewhere in between
Holding on to all those feelings for you
Or knowing that letting go is what I must do
I sit out by the water to blow off some steam
Watching as the water flows over the rocks and continues down stream
For a moment I manage to find some peace
Knowing that in time that feeling will cease
It helps to escape my thoughts even for a short while
With the sun shining bright I can't help but smile
Reminding myself that one day I will find my way
Even if I can't do it today
I guess you could say that missing you
Is something I've gotten rather used to
Though some days are easier than another
I find comfort in my mother
Though she can't be here to help me get thru
I remember what she once said about someone just like you
You were just one chapter in my life
And even if you didn’t make me your wife
Someone someday will see what you never did in me
In time I would find the man you couldn't be
In my heart I know just what she would say
And that helps me get thru another day
Without your love…without you
I know that like you I will be okay too
But down the road you will find it is me you miss
Every smile and every kiss
But by the time you do
I won't be there to come back to
Of that much I can be sure
Cuz a love that was once so pure
Has been stained with pain
Thoughts of you driving me insane
My heart deserves better than that
Late nights, sad songs, and there I sat
For so long thinking back to what used to be
Only to realize the truth was it was me
I was the only keeping me here
Because of you I was full of fear
Afraid someone might do the same as you
Terrified my heart would get broken by someone new
And I'd be just as hurt as I was before
But I can't live like that anymore
I have to find a way to move on
Your memories must be foregone
It's becoming more clear what it is I must do
Just had to find myself a new view
To realize all the possibilities out there
Had to take a step back and breath of fresh air
To see all the things I let escape me
But here and now I have set myself free
Ready to give love another try
And finally tell your memories goodbye
Can't believe how much better I feel
Never again my happiness will you steal
My thoughts, my feelings, my mind and my heart
All these things are ready for a new start
For once in my life they all agree
I finally set myself free!!!!

Long poem by Elisa Christensen | Details

Welcoming Youl

You really want to know who I am?  
Are you interested at all,
In what lies behind the pretty face?  

Perhaps in search of,
A little substance?
A certain grace?  

Not unlike any other 
Mother of this great Earth, 
I am strong.
I’ve had to sharpen my skills,
Thicken my blood to ward off 
The night’s chills.

When the dragon came, 
It was solely my game.

No knight, 
Not even any armor, 
In sight.

So I fought.

Bloody, impossible battles.
That wore me down to the very bone.  
But not to worry,
For you see, 
That is what has made me, 
Still residing in that lofty tower,
Delicate beauty disguising 
My hard earned power.

No true knight in site. 

That’s strangely been...

But even within my intricate, fascinating castle,
That I built up around me, 
That shell.
That forms my layer of protection from,
Those crafty, hungry beasts from hell,
Who come cloaked in, 
The black of winter’s darkest night.

I am still just, 
A vulnerable, little girl.  
Bathed in golden light.

I have read all of the words of the great men, 
And when they no longer took me to, 
Those beloved, mysterious corners, 
I began to write my own.
When the colors of my paints,
Finally blended into a dull hue, 
So faint,
I created new colors.  

When my feminine frame failed me,
In the physics required to cross that wide moat,
I designed the proper tool.  
I learned.  

I built a boat.

Should you find the courage to approach,
The strength and tenacity necessary to hack away at,
The wild, glorious, flowering vines growing without reason,
Surrounding my castle,
Season after long season,
And you are afforded, 
A fleeting peek at the treasure within--

I welcome you.  
Let’s begin.

Should you get past those tall, outer gates,
That were built by men of much lessor character.  
Those who dared to show,
With absolutely no 
Or Truth.
Somehow slipping past my barrier.

Those who dared to win the girl with fancy spins,
Across the parlor’s gold and pearl inlayed floor,

Please stop there. 

Pause just a moment at that door.
Before approaching again.

Stop and take it all in.

Really see what your greatest journey 
Has brought you to.

Open the perception of your heart and really look.

Realize what all of this took.

For this is the destiny,
Of your heart’s greatest dream.
And yes, I am even more,
Than I could possibly ever seem.

The laughter you hear but cannot quite determine,
The direction from which it comes. 
That is indeed,
Pure joy. 

Not magic.

The tears that fill your eyes,
Are those of knowing 
A sweetness rarely found.
It is truth.  

However tragic.

That thrust of purpose you feel at your back,
That skip suddenly quickening your feet,
As we approach to meet,

That is all real.  

No magic spells have been cast.
There’s no fleeting, shallow, trending romance here,
That couldn’t possibly last.  
That’s the next castle over.

What is here is real.  

It is a lifetime of commitment.
An incomparable dedication to Truth.
Decorated equally with my hard-earned scars,
As much as,
My finest beauty and the ecstasy I bring, 
Along with more thrills,
Than a man has ever seen.

You are not in a dream.
But you have discovered,
The hidden treasure that is me.

So welcome.  
Approach with care.
I’m so glad to finally see you there!

At my castle’s great gate.  
Finally realizing our extraordinary destiny,
Our sweet fate.

I’ve been expecting you!

A Psycho Path's Prey

My prey lays on the table somewhat consciously.
He is slowly reviving from my injection that put him to sleep.
He is secured to the table with duct tape tightly.
I'll remove the gag from his mouth when he awakens fully.
His muffled screams begin inevitably.
It's time to greet my very soon to be very deceased.
Brandishing my blade in front of the face of he
I say to him calmly but very assertively,
"I'm going to remove your gag, but I'll cut your tongue out if you scream.
Nod if you understand me and agree."
After nodding at me shaken understandably,
I removed the gag, he then began to speak.
"What's going on? Who Are you?" he said to me.
I replied, "It would appear that I am your final destiny."
He looked at me shaken and asked, "What do you mean?"
"I mean that I'm about to kill you," I said to him nonchalantly.
I held up a photo of a young lady.
"She's now dead because of you," I said to he.
I held up another photograph for him to see.
"You killed this man too apparently
on a drunk hit and run accident spree."
"I didn't kill them," he pleaded, "It wasn't me."
I held up another photo and simply stated, "Oh really?"
"You killed this little girl on the day of her birthday party.
Never another birthday will she or her grieving family ever again see."
I held up more photos for him to see.
Some were children, some were young, some were elderly.
"..but it wasn't me, I swear," he cried pleadingly.
"It wasn't me," he cried, "It was the booze. It completely takes over me."
"Now there's a situation," I said to he,
"that I'm not completely unsympathetic to actually.
You see, I can't help myself either," I said to him.
"I have no control over my desire to kill human beings."
"I promise I'll never drink again," he then said to me,
"I'm so sorry for all I've done.  Please, please believe me."
"You've done this way too many times to be truly sorry.
You would just kill again if I set you free
and so very soon you will be wrapped in garbage bags neatly
and dropped to the bottom of my little corner of the world under the sea
where you will never be lonely. You will share very similar company
with others much like you who have had this moment with me.
Neither you or I are in full control of our destiny,
but it would appear that I hold the upper hand presently,"
and as I plunged my blade through his heart I was immediately released
from my dark passenger's embrace that allows me no peace.
I don't know why I am the way that I am.
All I want more than anything is to be a normal and good man,
so as long as my dark passenger continues to haunt me,
killing other human beings will be the way I always will be,
so I'll channel my darkness where it will be most in need.
I'll take out the garbage and dump it at the bottom of the sea.
I like to write dark occasionally,
so don't be turning me in to any law enforcement agency.
I've just been viewing my collection of DEXTER DVDs
which has motivated me to write dark lately.

Shy Julie - Part 1

Shy Julie - A Punters Nightmare Part 1 They fancied themselves "Gurus of racing", this Ron and his best mate John So they sat down one day in an easy relaxed way And mused on the pros and the cons Of punting and racing, of adrenalin flow chasing To syndicates, systems and form And came to the conclusion under no delusion With brains like theirs they would make their millions How could they ever go wrong? So one Saturday night when conditions were right Armed with papers, computers and the rest With determined breath and excitement at height They decided to put to the test With odds in their favor and set not to waver On favorites systems and short sight Wearing magnified glasses and warm woolen beanies They were starting to see the light The air was electric the pulses a tingle The adrenalin high and in tune to this jingle Lets go get em my good man Ron Get on the phone and lay that bet on Now hang on there John and don't be a fool Calm down have a drink try to be cool So what will you have Scotch Vodka or Gin Scotch will be fine said John with a grin This is the big one all up on this pup A world record holder a bolter for the Cup The race drew near the air was electric The caller was good the crowd was ecstatic Shy Julie the select one was rearing to go Couldn't wait for the green light and the bunny to show The gates were lifted she was off like a shot Ten lengths ahead the pursuit running hot Then much to their amazement and everyone's awe She stopped short in her tracks-fifty meters to go One could almost hear the drop of a pin She'd decided to stop and throw it all in Sweet bashful and shy I always will be Serves them right for trying to make a Hound out of me T'was too much to bear Shock Horrors of Horrors The crowd was aghast our two punters in sorrow. What went wrong said John to that world record holder Would you think me less a man if I cried on your shoulder Not a word said Ron but by the look on his face You could see he thought her performance a disgrace
Footnote: This is a true story, where my husband Ron and my brother John decided to throw some big money on this World record Holder Shy Julie, who had won 11 of her 18 starts . The super stayer had this Semi final of the rich Association Cup seemingly "all parceled up". However without warning Shy Julie propped badly and failed to complete the course, much to the punters who had backed her into 2/1 favoritism I don't think they shared my view of seeing the funny side to it. Motto of the Story When a female says No she means No

Remember that I Loved You

*Edited for Length and Content*

Remember that I loved you
while we went riding 
through the ‘burbs, 
looking at houses we couldn’t afford, 
caught up in your naivety 
so you gave me your word,
dumped you for the next one,
thought I’d never be that girl.

Remember that I loved you,
gave him up for you.
Let you play games,
run things,
was easily your fool.
I was embarrassed
but I kept on,
you had to love me,
I insisted.
Tried to lie about the signs
you were honest
I ignored it.
At the end I took the blame,
let them think I was crazy.
Never told them ‘bout the talks,
all the promises you made me.

Remember that I loved you,
but you never felt the same.
I lied to myself 
and I lied to my friends.
I was on the ledge
and with you I took the plunge.
Fell face first
you stepped back,
just sex,
that’s what you want?
I gave it,
then chased you,
you took off with my heart.
Took some time
but I got past you,
you never needed that.

Remember that I loved you?
Thought 'at last’ 
I got it right.
You were different,
I was stable,
just two adults living life.
Slept together 
on the first night,
unconventional start.
But I had a key to your place,
you made your way to my heart.

Saw the text in your phone,
didn’t blow up your spot,
hardly clapped back
even though I was hot.
Dragged you through, 
you followed me back.
He put in his work,
so I’ll give him that.

Not sure why we ended,
something was missing.
I remember the night 
I was crying and pleading.
Two in the morning, 
frustration all on you.
We can point fingers,
I never made it easy.

Remember that I loved you?
Though I hated you at first.
I judged you,
thought lowly,
scum of the earth.

I was down for whatever
if you were involved, 
went from drop offs
to long talks,
my thinking evolved.

My heart was expanding.
You had plenty to offer.
I was far gone
long before the night in October.

You had me wide open,
I was young and unfocused.
I was marked,
I was yours,
we both know that you knew this.

Things happened so quickly, 
next month I was gone. 
Told you I’d be back,
I think you knew all along.

From there I went crazy,
you weren’t much better.
I held out,
you didn’t, 
she came back 
and you let her.

I didn’t sweat it,
just wrote poems 
and cried.
I’d text you,
you’d call me,
hurt on the line.

We tried.

I tried,
I kept up, 
you gave up,

I reached out,
still loved you,

Then I branched out, 
you tried to come back,
don’t even.

Remember that I loved you?
I doubt it.

Long poem by Vicki Acquah | Details


All, is all I want of you,
Satisfy my neurosis -My aesthetic desires; Deep in the mines of your mind. Allow me to collect my jewels: Allow me to search your very core— You shake apples from my family tree. Let me water your family foliage. Plant your future deep, deep within; Bury promises in my fertile soil.
Let’s practice making perfect jewels, a man-child, and a beautiful girl. Plant them in the center-core of my being—Like a perfect stone of Jade. Let me have it, like I like it, pluck these righteous peaches from my tree. Bury your seed deep within me; Let them be named for my romantic stone. Jade for our love child- or ZenYui, for our son.
Sustain me with your hard-Phallic Jade. Explore me like a diamond mine—Swim to the bottom of my ocean for treasures until my body kicks waves of rhymes unmeasured; Begging for your rhythmic beat. Jade phallic of stone, kick back pheromones of lyrical harmony.
Squeezing. - ravishing, enhancing, relishing the Gem, till it explodes; Imploding life inside of me; Filling my belly with lovely jewels. Give me all of you, Excavating all the pearls inside of me, mentally and physically.
Use all of your creativity, let me ride the waves of your agility. Stimulating each other harmoniously. Concentrating solely on your vivacity; Take all of me... Until our will becomes one. Going for the gusto, looking for my “Objet Trove”
Fan the flames of our fiery aura. Romancing, Nuances of your Phallic
All,is all I want of you; Satisfy my nature - My aesthetic desires; Deep in the mines of your mind. Allow me to collect my jewels: Allow me to search your very core— You shake apples from my family tree. Let me water your family foliage. Plant your future deep, deep within.
Bury promises in my fertile soil; Let’s practice making perfect jewels, a man-child, and a beautiful girl.
Plant them in the center-core of my being—Like a perfect stone of Jade. Let me have it, like I like it, pluck these righteous peaches from my tree. Bury your seed deep within me; Let them be named for my romantic stone. Jade, for our love child, or ZenYui for our son.
want your mental chemistry, your DNA. Profoundly balanced passion... as you plant your future beings in the flesh of me. Pure Jade or ZenYui; I need every element of you, transferred into perfect beings,procreating new creations; Breed me with your seed, creating perfect beings recreating ourselves. Giving birth to your genius, giving birth to your uniqueness. I want nothing more; 
I live for nothing more. As I’ve found within the earth-core of you “Pure Jade”! 
I want to reproduce you

Can you blame her

Can you blame her?
Can you blame her for falling in love?
For believing every single word?
For believing in safety?

Manipulated, you see?
Her decisions were not her own.
Forced into the things she disagreed with.
Beaten when she did not please.

Can you blame her?
Can you blame her for seeing the good in the bad?
For believing there is a good in the bad?
For believing in love?

Who wouldn't want love?
She wanted to be loved.
Cared for at the least. 
Following her heart, she fought her hurt.
Her laugh was loudest in the crowd.
Her cries were the strongest in the pillow she screamed in.

Just till she gave up on herself.
Right before she took what her mother didnt want her to take, 
he found her.

His sweet smile soothed her heart.
His gentle eyes, giving her a new laugh.
His voice, calming the storm that rumbled inside. 
The craving for his touch, making her believe again.

Can you blame her?
Can you blame her for such an existence? 
For seeing only the good in him?
For seeing what she always wanted?

His compliments filled her heart.
His words showing more affection than she has ever seen with her own eyes.
She cried. 
But can you blame her? 

Can you blame her for the distance?
For the miles that stretched between them?
For the time it would take to get to him?

She believed him.
She loved him.
Her heart felt free again. 
As if she can fly with no worries about the rain.

But can you blame her?

Her smile was brighter than the sun.
Her love poured out like the river into the sea. 

Can you blame her?

The talk became a minimum. 
Not even an our a day anymore.
She worried but still believed.

Can you blame her?
For falling in love?
For being played?

He... broke her heart.
Moved on so quickly.
betrayed, she broke.

Can you blame her?
For trying her hardest?
For doing what he wanted just so he can be pleased?

She cried. 
Her tears silent in the dead of night.
Her heart shattering and stomach filled with a dim fire that was soon to run out.

Can you blame her?

He was the sun to her roots.
He was the pencil to her paper.
The peace to her chaos. 
The light to her darkness.


He was the smile that came to her heart.
But even that was taken from her.

Can you blame her?
For the hurt she felt?
For the lies she fed on desperately? 

He was all she wanted.
She hated him for that.
Hated him for becoming everything she wanted and then stealing it away from her. 
Just with a snap of his fingering...

Can you blame her???

Cause i can...
I sure as hell can...

Long poem by Kimber James | Details


I never imagined things would come to this
With you, life is filled with such bliss.
All the laughs we share,
No other memories could compare.
I love your smile
It's more radiant than the sunset's reflection off the ocean.
More beautiful than the tidal waves in motion.
My life is complete,
All the times with you are set on repeat.
Your voice when you sing
Brings a smile so wide
Up to my eyes
You make me feel hypnotized.  
Rewind, pause, play and fast-forward are four buttons
If life had buttons, things would change all of a sudden
You could go back
When things start to crack
You could pause and stay in that moment
Just because
You could play
And go day by day
Or fast-forward and see
What life has to offer
Can I press rewind?
Id go back and give you all my time.
From the very beginning, ive felt weve had this connection.
Since then, I’ve tried to show affection. 
Id press rewind
And show you more
My feelings for you would galore.
Like a firework in the sky
Like a bird soaring high
Id make you want me
Just as much as I want us to be
Id give you every dime
Id give you all my time
Id walk every mile
To be your every laugh and every smile
Can I press fast-forward?
To see what life would have to offer
Would your hand be in mine
Would our fingers intertwine
Would we dance and sing
In perfect rhythm and harmony
Would we go on an adventure
To explore the whole world together
Can I press play?
Stay in this moment 
And take it day by day
I want you now
To you, I wanna say my vows.
Vow to stay through sickness and health
Through the poor and the wealth
Id swim across the ocean
Id walk the land
Id hike up a mountain
Just to hold your hand
Fast-forward would finally allow you to be mine
Id skip everything just to see the stars align
Should I press pause?
And stay in this moment 
just because
Right now the butterflies in my belly are fluttering
Trying to find sweetest words- stuttering. 
Ill press fast-forward
Pressing pause would be torture
I want you now and to never go
That I need you to know
Rewind, pause, play and fast-forward are four buttons
If life had buttons, things would change all of a sudden
You could go back
When things start to crack
You could pause and stay in that moment
Just because
You could play
And go day by day
Or fast-forward and see
What life has to offer
Ill press fast-forward and then ill press play. 
Ill skip everything and have you that day
Life doesnt have buttons so ill have to wait
Id wait patiently all my life because you are my soulmate.

The Intensifying love story

The Intensifying love story by 
I simply adore you, my Mesmerizing 
As you are my first love.
Who lighted my heart with full of pride and 
Who ignited the ecstasy towards lovely life.
Who relieved my pains and took sorrows 
as boon.
You made me fall sick in your love when I 
see your madness.
I like the way,
The way you gazed at me and my smoky 
The way you smiled at my mystifying and 
enigmatic appeal.
The way you every time praises me.
The way you galvanized me and proved 
the meaning of life.
You are the one,
Yes, you are the one who aroused my 
feelings, my emotions.
Yes, you are the one who explored my 
passion of love, flaming in my charismatic 
Yes, you are the lovely treasure which god 
had baptized me.
Yes, you are the one who turned the page 
of my life.
Eureka, I found my true love!!!!
Bewilderedly I did not know, where is my 
love taking me to ??
But still I like the way,
Like, the way you clutched me into your 
Like, the way you kissed my palms.
Like, the way you hugged me, caressed 
Like, the way you rubbed your fingers on 
my lips.
Like, the way you tickled me on my neck.
Like, the way you squeezed my cheeks.
Like, the way you holded me up towards 
the sky.
Like, the way when you inspired me to fly 
so high.
Tears dropped from my eyes and the very 
next moment I realized that it is my 
sensational love. My true love. Then I 
decided that no one had right to do this 
except you. If you want to know the 
reason?? If yes??
Yes, because I seriously fell in love with 
Yes, because you are the one to whom god 
had assigned me to.
And here comes the Swifted instance 
When, the moment you wore the golden 
ring in my finger and I was happily waving 
Just can’t forget the time when our long 
lasting friendship turned into lifetime 
It was just the blooming of two lover’s 
indicating the herald of the marriage. It 
means a lot for any girl in this amazing 
And yes, you will always find my heart 
topped with love showered only for you. 
For you!!
And till my last breathe, my heart beats, 
beating for you, only for you SUYOG!!
In fervour I wanted you to be mine forever, 
We both sojourned in each other soul so 
deeply that we just can’t wait for a single 
second, unless and until, we share what is 
running in our mind. It’s just because we 
are so much accustomed to each other 
I Love you, adore you, adore you forever 
my Love.

You Lost It All

To see u again I thought wld be rough
But turned out it wasnt so tough
Even as I caught u looking my way
There was ntn u cld say
Tht cld change the way I feel now
3 months ago I made a vow
I married some1 tht means everything 2 me
Finally over wht used 2 be
Yet still I cldnt help but 2 wonder y
I did all I cld not 2 look u in the eye
Even tho I kno Im finally over u
Forgetting just wasnt something I cld do
I wonder wht was going thru ur mind
But the answers I refused 2 try & find
Figuring my best bet was 2 let it go
For the answers I was sure I didnt want 2 kno
I spent 2 much time
Trying 2 get u 2 be mine
& no mtr wht I ever tried 2 do
I failed when it came 2 u
So in time I had 2 learn
That 2 u I cld no lngr turn
For love or as my friend
Everything we knew had come 2 an end
Tho it wasnt the easiest thing 2 do
I knew I must 2 learn 2 live w/o u
Pretending as if wht we had
& from every1 I hid
The love I still had for u
Cuz I was sure it was wht I had 2 do
With time even I began 2 blv my own lie
So sure my love for u wld eventually die
But it nvr did
& in time in2 ur memories I slid
Old pics I found myself goin thru
Revisiting all my old thoughts of u
The love we once shared creeping up on me
& remembering wht used 2 be
No mtr how hard I try 2 fight
My own mind keeps me up at nite
& thru my poems my secrets come out
I find myself writing about
All those things I keep trying 2 4get
Starting with the 1st day we met
All these things are burned in2 my brain
Even tho w/ u all I found was pain
My love 4 u was true
At one time thought u felt the same too
But over time
I began 2 wonder if u were rly mine
Walking away seemed so easy 2 do
For so lng I stayed in love with u
There wasnt anything I wldnt try
No tear I didnt cry
Still tht didnt seem 2 mean anything to u
At least tht was wht it seemed from my point a view
I tried 2 convince myself u rly loved me
& that 2 your heart I really did hold the key
Just like u once said I had
But I guess tht was my bad
For believing anything u ever said was true
Cuz the real u its clear I nvr knew
& wht I used 2 think we shared
Turns out I was the only 1 who truly cared
But as I think back 2 wht used to be
U were the 1 tht missed out not me
For u there wasnt anything I wouldnt do
& now my love for u
Isnt there anymore
Things will nvr be like they were b4
U will nvr rly understand the cost
Of wht u had & wht u lost

ntn=nothing wht=what rly=really nt=not nvr=never wld=would cld=could shld=should mtr=matter tht=that lngr=longer
