outside on the tender leaves.
I look through the windonw
on this cool summer night
caressed by a gently breeze.
I am missing you deeply inside
staring blankly, into space;
curtains blowing softly
against my skin
tears of love, run down my face...
Staring, for the longest while
never realizing the passing time.
Trying to find the pieces
to make it right
the words, to make it rhyme...
For how can I ever tell him
let the deepest part of me show?
That I'm lost without his love...
How will he ever know?
I think of 'you'Peering out my window, noticing, the lilac bush in full bloom.I think of 'you'1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Picking up one of the soft petals
and raising it to my nose;
the air is 'warm'
the fragrance sweet...
I think of 'you'.
The day is lazy.
Soft music comes drifting by my window
from the house down the road.
I notice the gentle hum of the queen bee
as she feeds off the flowers,
and the soothing monotony of the crickets song.
I am so 'aware' - of 'life' taking place...
I think of 'you'.
The cemetery's aglow, with bright flowers,
and fresh, young graves...
I walk, down the mental paths of my mind;
the sun, shining warmly upon my hair, and face.
The birds, ask and answer - the sweet questions
only 'they' understand; as, I walk.
And the tomb stones, look back at me
introducing themselves by name,
welcoming, my company;
'offering', perfumed fragrant gifts
as a symbol of life...
Lifting one, to my nose.
Smelling it's gentle fragrance, and touching it's soft
EnvisionIn my thoughts I'd 'hope' for you....Envision1 week ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I wish we could have been...
I'd close my eyes and see in my mind
an ever so sweet envision.
The truth had come to me too late;
though looking back in the blue
the feelings stir, inside me again,
the beautiful ways in which I'd seen you...
I was as a mountain
peaked, with soft white snow;
til the Spring of 'you', came into my life;
then gentle waters flowed....
And went with me
through valleys and streams
of my life, I'd never seen before.
Our differing ways, just intensified
to show me more.
I learned a whole new world of 'me'
things, you already knew...
Of the sun in the sky
it's effect to warm.
You 'showed me' the sky of blue.
I learned of the birth of flowers
as they opened, to the dawn.
I knew then what it was to smile.
You taught me, and then you'd gone.
And slowly I looked about me
at everything that you 'were'.
All the beautiful things
of which, together; helped me
to paint your picture.
Then I understood - and felt the wa
Compassion Of The Heart...Come over here and talk to me,Compassion Of The Heart...3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I told my little boy.
"Oh mom I'm mad, my brand new friend,
stole my only toy!"
"My dear sweet son, it pains me so,
to see you so upset, but there's one thing
you ought to know, one thing you won't forget."
"Please mother tell me, what it is
this thing I ought to mind? Can I buy it, is it new
or maybe does it wind?"
Ah my son it's nothing new, it's been around awhile
It's something that I always knew, that won't go out of style!
Son, it's nothing stores can sell, or put upon a shelf,
it's not a truck or Lego set, or some poor garden elf.
Son there's some that don't have much,
your friend and many more...but we will find another toy,
in another store!
It's sad of course your toy is gone, theft is never right...
but think of how your friend might feel, without a toy in sight.
Of course he may have borrowed it, cause friends they often do
I mean to say what is a friend? What does that mean to you
ReflectionsLike silent raindrops fallingReflections3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
reflections, shown in tears.
The agonies and sorrows;
a picture painted clear.
Each one tells a story
in, such a way
compassionately, as to make you feel
what words could never say.
Watch them slowly falling.
Listen, with your eyes;
to the pictures, painted before you.
See them come alive.
So very colorfully dancing;
in full detail
one, by one...
On and on,
you can't escape.
The story is never done.

my thoughts, only I know...
Since the day I left you
it's been raining, constatly
for days in a row.
As I sit here watching
I quietly ask myself 'when'
will I begin to smile?
Will the sun start to shine again?
For love with you was beautiful
so beautiful....at one time.
You had a way with words
a way, of making them rhyme.
On and on, endlessly
your sweet voice filled the air;
making me feel the love you claimed
- though, it was never there.
Now here I sit remembering
sweet memories, of then...
Hating myself for loving you
and wanting you back again.
You WereYou were a moment of truth and beauty,You Were3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
that once had touched my life.
You loved me, you really did;
now, I am paying the price.
Paying the price for ignoring the fact
you were so deeply involved;
as I selfishly left you alone with a problem
I knew only I could solve...
Now all that's left to my life is 'hope'
hoping and wondering,... if, and when?
Will those precious moments of truth and beauty
ever touch my life again.

angel of death.
I wear you tight to my knuckle
hold you close to my chest.
Black is your color
with a face I can't see.
I wait for your touch
to transform me...
Me into 'you'.
To die is to live.
Freedom in ebony

softly, throughout the night
has me, reminiscing
on the verge of light
sleep, and tender dreams...
Taking me back in my past...
I see myself in your arms again
in the place where we were last...
Lying there in your arms
as you soft, and gently breathed.
In the air is insecurity
the atmosphere, 'lonely'.
I remember feeling that 'this'
was the last night together we'd spend.
Why did I have to be so right?
And solitude take end.
To the love, we once had given,
as one; so generously?
Whatever happened to our love?
Where along the line did you lose me?

so I can not love you 'freely'.
Your ways are oppressive
of anger, and control;
'free', love has to be.
The death of an angel...
A broken rag doll.
I feel, I've fallen from grace.
For with hatred you have looked me
deep in the eyes,
while the hands I loved
slapped my face.
My fear, hides in the dark.
But against my will - 'honesty'
lights up the room
my broken heart.
I realize I've got to fly;
away with my feelings
to a bright place;
where love goes

or amber fields or grain;
than the beach at sunrise,
or a summers walk in ther rain.
Are 'your eyes'...they're lovely...
Something about them so sweet.
They are so kind, and understanding
gentle, warm and deep.
They seem to almost
look right through me;
to my secret place inside.
Exposing my every, fear and doubt
feeling me, with your eyes.
To the point, where I just can't take it.
In them, is ectasy...
They've seen my life
in a moment's time...
Ever so soft, and lovely.

All I wanted was a little.

And so did he.

Thou knowest not my beauty.
But if ye sought the face of the Lord
surely, I would come to thee.
My wings are bound and chained
to fly, only, unto the sincere;
whom have searched with the angels
of Patience, and Mercy; and Truth,
for the key to my seal.
I reside not, in the halls of vexation,
nor do I neighbor with wrath.
I know only the ways, of love and justice
and all they of whom, such qualities hath.
I flyest through the beginings
unto the ends of the earth; my candle
an eternal flame.
Given to me of the Lord
SEEK HIS FACE
and share my name.

My JackTime is...as always it was...My Jack3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
as it remains... (though new)...
There was once when the days ran together
then suddenly, I met you.
...It's as though you were always here
when you're away, the time goes so slow.
There is doubt...and yet I know that you love me.
You smile, and my heart melts as snow.
You can never begin Jack, to realize the feelings
I feel, as I watch you sleep.
If I could capture the moments
the sight, smell, taste...
forever...of your masculine beauty.
Then I'd know what it is
to have Heaven on earth;
love shining, a silver lining all around.
You are the 'only star' in my Universe....
Hear our souls
Sing, to be bound.

was, an honor to hold.
For yours was, an aesthetic nature
from day one, presented me in gold.
In the time that you gave
and the moments we shared
ours, was a strong bond.
A direct and peaceful
meeting of the souls;
of the hearts, of the senses,
of the minds.
M y heart cried out
with joy, with freedom
as silently, my spirit was freed...
to search out the truth
to find, to 'be with'
my alter ego, who came to be...
M y life and my friend
my reason for living
my sadness....You are are all of these.
For when you entered my life
I began to glow
with the recognition, of 'inner peace'...
Y ou were the light at the beginning of my rainbow;
now the truth
to be found at the end.
In the opened arms, of compassion
To 'be again'...God given.
Missing my best friendI can´t take this much more,Missing my best friend4 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
my sorrow has me on the floor.
My face, full tears wears a frown
I´m always unhappy, feeling down
I know what´s causing all of this
what has taken all my bliss.
Your absence has stolen my peace of mind
cos never again will I find.
A love that keeps my spirits high.
a loving place for my soul to reside
in perfect peace and harmony
filled with joy so lovingly.
Deep within is desolation,
with no way out and no salvation
I feel as if I´m floating in space
eternally lost without a trace.
I miss you honey, my heart it yearns
my tears flow, they sting and burn.
In this sadness I see no end
I miss my love,
my best friend.

You are the BeautyAll the beautiful things in life I think ofYou are the Beauty3 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
whenever, I think of you.
The Autumn sun at it's warmest;
the waters of the tropics
at their deepest blue.
under April rain,
the blossoms, in early May.
The birds, and the bees, and the locusts,
that come out on warm June days...
The sounds of small children playing
in the shade, in the dirty breeze.
The feel and the smell
of the morning sun
on my face,
warm and clean...
You are 'everything' that I feel...
In all I can touch
You're my inspiration; my guiding light.
In my world
you 'are' the beauty.

The wind burns
With its knife
Reveals a darker
Side of my life
That you avoid.
Smiles you love.
Tears and tears
Falls from grey
Clouds on earth
My own name.
The words of mine
Are broken glass
That I expose
Trying to heal me.
But it’s impossible
I already died
When an angel
Forgot my heart.
I will end
A tragic existence
Don’t you dare
To do resistance.
My last words
My last feeling
Embraced by rain
I want to sleep.

Hope can make bitterness
Evolve on cynics' tongues

Engulfed in innocence

In perfect happiness
Kisses of destiny

Internal FireThis day will remain until the endInternal Fire6 days ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The time will dry and wilt
Soon the dawn will break
I will be remembering how I felt
My fragile soul will eventually shatter
And with ash I will be surrounded
From the flame that is burning within me
punishing me for what I have hounded
Sleepless nights have gotten under my skin
I am becoming thin and pale
My lips can hardly stretch for a smile
I am tired
I am frail
The sun no longer gives me warmth.
The moon cannot help me breathe.
My soul is departing,
I am ceasing to be.
