Decisions Decisions

I stare at this lonely blank page of white
Never knowing exactly just what to write

Do I pen something happy or something quite sad
Show forth some laughter or show that I'm mad

Maybe show them the Creator and all that He gives
Or show them the darkness where my soul really lives

Something rude or crude or passions searing heat
Or the dirty dark secrets of life on the street

No matter what I write no matter what I say
I will keep going on just to write another day

I Sit Here Alone

I sit here alone in the night looking out at the horizon
watching as the gathering storm clouds are outlined 
by flashes of lightning in the inky blackness

The wind begins lashing at the trees as the fury 
of the storm draws ever nearer and the rolling
cascade of thunder reaches my ears

The raw energy within the towering clouds remind 
me of you and a pang of longing flows through me
at the memory of those days and nights together

It was a time when our love was fanned by the
winds of passion and desire and it burned white 
hot like the lightning flashing across the skies

But all too soon the winds calmed and the passion
faded and you simply turned and walked away... 
leaving in your wake the wreckage of our love 

The pouring rain forces me from my memories as
the heat of remembered passion is cooled and 
brokenheartedly I sit here alone...

Slumber

Flowers fade in the 
cool autumn breeze
As colors change the 
leaves on the trees
Life does begin it's 
long cold slumber
Dreaming of the long 
hot days of summer

Want

I want to write a love poem to you...

Not a script of lust and passion and burning desire, but...

One from deep within my own beating heart written with 
the hopes and dreams of things to come that can carry 
us into forever...

I want to write a love poem to you...

To express in words that which these lips of clay cannot...

One that will carry us far beyond impossible situations to 
a place of peace and tranquility where all things are possible...

I want to write a love poem to you...

The Race

43 cars go round and round
But only one can wear the crown

With fans of every shape and size
Wearing the colors of the one who drives

Hear the roar and smell the fuel
As cars speed around and join the duel

Faster and faster do they go
With fans on their feet enjoying the show

43 cars go round and round
But only one can wear the crown

In the Chilly Morn

in the chilly morn
as bird songs brighten the day
coffee hits the spot

Flames

The essence of you swirls and 
flows around me like a wild thing 
that moves just outside the light 
that is the burning flames of love
~          ~          ~          ~          ~
Sometimes coming so close that 
the flames dance with wild desire
and other times moving away and 
leaving them as cooling embers
waiting to once more be fanned
into heartwarming flames of love
~          ~          ~          ~          ~

Autumn Winds

Dying leaves take flight
in the swirling autumn winds
   ~   ~   ~   ~   ~
Earth's slumber begins

Rebirth

The light of unending Love
shinning in your eyes
lights up the dark recesses
of my heart and soul

Rekindling the dying embers
of my desire's and once again
bringing life to that which
was dry and thirsty

My Bubble of Pain

I'm trying not
to go insane
wrapped up in 
my bubble of pain

Dark are the days
and bitter the fight
as chaos reigns 
in my world tonight

The voices shout
and the demons cheer
as I slowly lose
all that I hold so dear

The angels tears
they fall like rain
as I lay defeated in
my bubble of pain
