The poem(s) are below...



The raw reflection, she is
The silent mirror of my soul
Who in her stillness channels deep 
The sour secrets that stain
The dying hopes that drain
The heart of their keeper

Her dreamer's dream, like dice
Enfold in the fist of his hand
With rapidity, restrained
Unreleased to disband
Raveled, like the white lit stars 
Secluded from the searching eye
Enrobed inside the night's dim sky
So was his love for her, emotions deep
Possessed, but never a prize 
Displayed of him 

The glamour hind the golden gates
Her city, there within resides
The glow of glory and my eyes
Like lips of lovers quick collide
Encumbered, closed inside a kiss
A soulful duet, sung 
With power, undeniable
With passion, indescribable
Bowels of intimacy, in love
The bride/groom,

This ethereal, intimate scene
My eye beholds
Yet with heart of hearts
I withdraw and withhold her

Though so ever wise, 
She's shows herself
Her wisdom, infallible
To myself, I say
"Be wise, take heed!!!" 
For I know from my mind
The famine shall flee

Understand!!!! Understand!!!
Your will, to hers, yield
For your fate, in her hand befalls
"A wrong direction," she assures me
"Never should you know of fear"
For this angel, sent to you shall guide
And oversee you through the ever 
Deep and dark divide 
Between the distant realms
