Dear Lancelot

You have took what was mine
and to you I feel it fine
for I do not sit and tarry
on the past that makes us werry.

But that lady in whom you trust
may fill you head with hate and lust
So be careful of that Guinevere
It took me only but a year

To find the pain that lies in her
to find the end, you must concur
That in the end I needed her most
but I had to banish her ghost

Now in your days with love
Treat her well and do not shove
So she may treat you well with all her breath
because, I Arthur, proclaim her death.

Hokey Pokey

Love, to me, is caring without caring
holding on while letting go
Screaming silently, in joy,
Saying what you want, without saying a thing,
Laughing with your eyes, because it means so much more.

Love, to me, means showing who you are,
--- because you want to.
Love is, doing the little things, out of habit.
Love is, learning that she is always right,
--- and if she isn't, you'll fix it for her.

I believe in love and that it can happen
--- but like a fine house, it must be built,
--- not bought.
I believe, no matter what color you paint that house
--- If it isn't happy inside it shows outside.

I know love is real and that I can have it
--- I don't know when
--- I don't know who
--- I don't know where
--- I do know when love has been sent
--- I will discover what it means....

A Lonley Bullet

A lonely bullet needs a heart 
And, I think it's found in you 
A lonely bullet needs a heart 
Even when just passing through 
Now, oh now, My lonely bullet 
Has found it's place in you. 

You.... (whisper[I need you]) 
You.... (whisper[I need you]) 
I need YOU! Like I need one more breath to breath. 
I need YOU! Like I need a cure for a disease. 
I need YOU! But you don't want ME! 

A lonely bullet needs a heart 
And, I think it's found in you 
A lonely bullet needs a heart 
Even when just passing through 
Now, oh now, My lonely bullet 
Has found it's place in you. 

LONELY! But not alone.... 
DYING! While on this phone... 
WAITING! For words to say.... 
NOTHING! Will go away! 
AWAY! 
AWAY! 
WHY-WON'T-IT-GO-AWAY! 

A lonely bullet needs a heart 
And, I think it's found in you 
A lonely bullet needs a heart 
Even when just passing through 
Now, oh now, My lonely bullet 
Has found it's place in you. 

A lonely bullet needs a heart 
And, I think it's found in you 
A lonely bullet needs a heart 
Even when just passing through 
Now, oh now, My lonely bullet 
Has found it's place in you. 
Now, oh now, My lonely bullet 
Has found it's place in you. 
Now, oh now, tonight 
this lonely bullet sleeps with me, too....

The darkest of roses

To my corner I do retire
and pull the cover to my chest
I sit there and watch the fire
never to truly get my rest

Like the fire in my soul
the one who sits with me wains
and the air it is in becomes cold
the again in my heart.... pains.

I draw up inward,
I pull in fast
I reach my souls last shard,
hoping it can last.

The darkness does creep
and the quiet losses to thunder
I lay there calling sleep
Never  again a peaceful slumber.

Box of chocolates or Love in 3-D

I am not greedy
Nor am I needy
I just want one flavor
the one my mouth does savor
Many a times it's near
But "what If I'm wrong?" I fear...
I could be wrong then
What if It proves fatal when
I take a bite
It feels just right
then the lid shuts
in it there's nuts
What I want is creamy
Light, refreshing, and dreamy
All I want is one
I'll never stop till I'm done
Life is short, then you die
So In my life, there's no need to lie
All I want is that one part
of that box that's shaped like a heart....

Sunset Serenade to the Midnight Requiem

Staying in the light now?
Is that what it's called?
Fear of the darkness?
Or what in it has crawled?

You lay in your bed,
clutching at your cover.
Do you fear to be dead,
or are in the gaze of another?

Do not fear what, in the darkness, may live,
all they want is fun.
For they never take more than they give,
So there is no need to run.

Only the Dark ones we are,
So why fear and make fuss?
You could go far,
once you've joined us.

We Dark ones are lovers,
of an unusual sort
Using our minds on others 
In our ways they contort.

Now join me my lovely,
Whilest the night is still young.
and then my lovely,
our Requiem will be sung.

And your name is never mind

There was a blonde, a brunette
anothers who's hair was black
I swear, they all worry and fret
but what is it they all lack?

Body like a temple
to a mind like a book
Habits that are broad or simple
or capable of the most seductive look

the women who talk
till the dawn over takes the moon
or the quiet ones who love to stalk
and never leave a minute too soon.

Another girl, another day
Walk along, walk forever
Talk to her, talk away
and maybe, it'll come, that you love her.

Vampirous Valkirine

To the doors of dusk and dawn,
To the end of wolf and fawn,
To the world so deep in dread
To the ones we wished dead

To the effortless yet graceful fool
To the lone that's mind's so cool
To the heat of the lover's head
To clean the sins that they do shed

To the quiet and to the loud
To the cowards and to the proud
To the ones of life and death
To your only, last, failing breath

To the world so dark and cold,
To the young and to the old,
To the weak with song unsung,
To the sheath of sword unswung.

To the beginning and to the end,
To the message you never send,
To the life you'll never live,
To the love you'll never give.

To the blood in your vein
To the feel of festered pain
To the end of life so proud
So that silence screams so loud.

Once but Nevermore

Once I loved a girl,
And I tried to give her the world.
Tried too hard,
Caught me off guard.

Now I don't care
and she says it's unfair
but what do I say
my mind was set that day.

The end was here
and her reaction, I did not fear.
For my mind was set
and me, she never will get.

Once I loved that girl,
and I was her world
She tried too hard,
She should have been on guard.

The love that flows

Am I ugly to you?
Or am I too nice?
Do I talk too much?
Or just another, like a grain of rice?

Or on the otherhand...
Do you like me?
Wish you could just come out and say...
"Your smile fills my heart with glee"?

So which is it?
Can't say?
Is life that hard?
Or are you saving for a better day?

Oh well, we'll never know.
But baby you could make my day.
Who knows it could be what I've waited for...
but we'll never know, Wait, got somethin' to say???
