SanctuaryAnd I found myself in his sanctuarySanctuary5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
with tall majestic columns
sweeping tapestries of color
solemn silence of peace
Deep scents of incense lingering in the air
as candlelight trickled in through windows of stained glass
into a place that can only be described as sacred
sacred and holy to the worshipper within
it was then that i realized this was no ordinary chapel
no manmade cathedral of mortar and stone
this was a place etched by the hand of God
and placed in the path of his people
The columns, ancient oaks with their leaves grasping at autumn
the incense leaching out into the air from the pines, warmed by the sun
and the candlelight of the sun streaming in through the twisted roof of the canopy
God's house, wholly manifest as his Holy Creation
and in THAT moment, for the first time in 40 days and 40 nights
I was still, and I knew that He was God.

There's light in your eyes on the night you first said "I love you",
The same light in your smile after the first time I kissed you.
Sometimes my heart feels that light too when you touch me,
And it is one of the most beautiful feelings there could ever be.
Now I often see the light in your eyes whenever you look at me,
The smile in your eyes when you talk about me,
The tears in your eyes when you miss me,
The beauty in your eyes when you are with me.
I can think all day about you being with me,
All the time about the love you have for me,
All the things in the world I'd give to be your only one,
All the little reasons I love you.
Different DimensionsHello love,Different Dimensions5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I heard heaven's pretty lonely.
You could sneak into my room at night.
And quietly lie beside me.
Because, as sad as it makes me,
You don't want yourself to be seen.
And I've begun to miss the way,
You used to make that silly face,
When you'd trip over your laces.
And how we'd smile at one another
for minutes countless,
Because talking seemed so senseless.
And how the wind would skillfully play
with your short, wavy hair.
And you'd say if you closed your eyes,
You could hear the clouds,
As the breeze would drum against the back of your ears.
And you said it felt like flying.
And I can swear,
At nights I've heard you.
Like I could hear you thinking.
So, while you're living
In your own
Little heaven on Earth,
I dream about you...
All the time, love.
Like I've lost you to another dimension.

That leaked from between my lips
Thoughts I never meant to think
And never meant to speak
Whispers of my past
Crawl up within my ears
Telling me of the horrors of yesterday
The ones I missed
Including what I witnessed
You talk about your scars
You call them wars wounds of life
Yet they come from your own hand
Lead to greater suffering
In the end
Our faces streaked with dirt and tears
This might not be our fault on the surface
But deeper inside
We will realize our guilt
On judgment day

I promise you that you make me smile
you make me happy when ever your around.
You make me free as a bird out of prison,
that has just taken flight.
I promise you that I would cry if I had hurt you
you diserve the very best
and I see that now.
I promise you that I will be free of charge
if you ever need to come around again
when you need somebody to care for you
the way I do.
I promise you I won't hold anything back
from you when you ask me not to.
And I solemnly promise to you that you don't
take advantage of me
as long as you respect me for who I am and nothing more.
I will then promise to you to give you my heart
as long as you don't rip it apart
and as long as you promise to love me like you have never been hurt.

Cry not for the flower that once was
Or the way of nature or just because
For you see it is this life we seize
Our aim to be or just to please
The struggle of each day that comes
So hard or simple is the bee that hums
His tune as he works all day
We fight within to find our way
I know it has been said before
That how we live defines our core
Our very being is who we are
As sure that near is just as far
We laugh and cry and often say
That life is better when we pray
For all the others and not for us
To learn to give and share the trust
We need to see and not be blind
Of what is pure and who is kind
To give in moments when needed most
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Our faith in some is often lost
But do remember at any cost
Without in what we do believe
There is no tomorrow to achieve

When I make
A childs arm shrivel.
It thrills me
To turn strong legs useless.
Something to drag around.
To have such an effect on people
Is real power.
My whole purpose, you see, is to
Dash the expectations of youth
Like baby seals
Smashed for their downy-silk coats.
And to steal breath.
Full breath. Cleansing breath.
At every opportunity.
Its so fun.
I get to play
With the children.
The ones who have
So much growing to do.
So much exploring.
So much learning.
Ill put a stop to that.
You might not know me.
Im not often discussed
In polite company.
But Ill bet that your parents knew me.
I was the terror that
Kept them awake
Those hot summer nights.
And in the right neighborhoods
Mothers and fathers tremble
At my name
I laugh about that.
And I keep laughing
As I watch another child stumble
For no apparent reason
Knowing that he will
Never pull himself up
On to two feet again.

with regrets in shades of grey.
Repressed anger and frayed emotion
with promises broken, for reasons only seen
through rose-coloured glasses,
on the faces of nameless people.
Days in monotone, clouded with desire and
the hope of disquise, given by the marionette
with no strings.
Screaming the answers we need to hear, but
still the lonliness is felt, in a room filled with
bodies with no souls.
The acrid smell of desperation is so potent, as
to take away our breath, and leave us gasping
for the very air we breathe.
Saturated in the belief that torment is all encompassing,
and our free will is locked in a Pandora's box,
struggling with ego and self pity.
Too much to deal with, and set aside in rows
of matchbox cars, and only played with when
Life is as sudden as a tempest on the horizon,
or as drawn out as a mindgame of chess, with
too many pieces in all the wrong places.
Suddenly, is what I feel and suddenly, is

Tendrils of color dot the landscape
giving a feeling of technicolor delight
Blooms of outrageous beauty line the fields in
rows like toy soldiers
Their stems so ramrod straight and proud
The earth in which nature flourishes
A shade of dark ochre and as rich as treacle
Trees so tall and grown with the hardship of many years
Etched with furrowed wrinkles
in the bark that covers their solid trunks
The coat of many colors made of leaves that
drip off every branch in dancing unison and
moving with the singing breeze that flows through
every space and time
A sight to behold is this land of ours
Nothing can compare
to how simple and true life can be
Humming sounds of insects and the rustling of distant shadows
engulfing the last rays of light that sends nature to its rest
Flowers close their weary buds and wrap leaves
around themselves like a cloak of soft woolly down
Blades of grass lay down in the gust of the night wind

She moved towards the bar as sleek as an alley cat. Her body scented and clothed in expensive channel and the aroma that was left in her wake had the heads of all turning to see if she looked as good as she smelt.
This would only happen in a downtown bar such as this, frequented by average Joe's who were not accustomed to a lady as fine as her.
She was used to the attention so it was nothing new to see men, with mouths open, gawking like schoolboys watching as she walked passed, her heels clicking on the hard polished floor.
As she reached the bar her eyes perused the line of stools
Only two were taken.
Both by older men in working clothes whose faces were lined

Each piece is scattered throughout our time here on Earth and it is up to us to find the pieces and place them exactly where they belong.
It will not be easy.
In fact we will not know what the pieces are or where they may be hidden.
It could be as simple as a revelation.
Or a random act of kindness.
Maybe in the shape of another human being who may teach us the meaning of something profound.
Perhaps a journey through a tumultuous time that will give us an insight to courage and hope.
It could be as simple as feeling the heat of the sun on our skin and at that precise moment revel in how warm and pleasing it feels.
As confusing as the wetness of a tear as it slides down your cheek to make you realize that you can cry when you are happy as well as sad.
Or an aroma so inviting that it can stir your senses to overload and enable you to feel an abundance of emotions ranging from ecstasy to fear.
Maybe it will be a moment in a memory that was placed in one's mind and then f

Isabella dismissed the noise as one of daddys contraptions for the show. Not worth worrying about.
What she had to worry about though was her and her familys last circus performance in the run down town ever. Pathetic excuses for houses lined the streets, the biggest ones about the size of her bedroom from childhood.
They were all jumbled together, and made of god knows what with leaky roofs of hay and mud. Floors were either packed down dirt or, if someone was really lucky, worn down, scuffed wood. Most of the houses shed been through in that town had little if any furniture, maybe a few mats for beds and a fireplace full of soot.
Lucky for her, daddy had managed to buy a really big, emerald green carpet with gold flowers stitched throughout it to cover the dangerous wooden floor. Vampires like her and her family had to watch out for wood, one good hit with it could kill them.

So many moments have passed in my life and I still feel that they could of been played so much better.
My red-rimmed eyes hold such sadness and the evidence of dark nights of no sleep, too many tears and a longing look of where I should be.

Outside the sun is shining but inside my soul it is dark and holds no warmth.
Yet I burn.
Every fibre of my being has the heat of a thousand embers but I am still cold.
This time I forget to exhale and pray for the unconscious to take me to a place of peace and lay me down
