You inflict your strongest rays
whenever pride gets in the way.
You send down your hardest rains
whenever you’re enraged.
You cast out gusts of wind
whenever my mind needs discipline.
You set the spark to your hottest fire
whenever my wicked heart has sinned.
But no matter the weather,
you offer me nothing but pleasure.
The pleasure to live life joyfully
through all of life’s unpredictable weather.
Take the Dive:
Come dive into my ocean
And sink to the depths of my deepest love
To embrace a caress unknown to man.
And to feel a heart no one else can.
Drown yourself in the layers of my soul
And you'll uncover stories begging to be told.
Try to resurface and there's no coming back.
For my love runs far deeper than that.
Let your heart refill.
For the showers of my love
have poured down on this day
and lifted the veil of sorrow
that shall no longer remain.
Listen as the drops fall one by one.
Listen as it echoes with each delicate pound.
Watch as these showers give way to an outpouring of power.
A power vastly unknown to Earth’s disobedient drones.
So stop now and think
about this sweet nature’s drink
And put your mind at ease
knowing all that’s left to do is believe.
We live in a world created for joy.
Yet it persists at a rate full of guilt and suffering.
We revel in deceit.
Do we not understand such dishonor we place at our very feet?
We were created to struggle on all sorts of levels.
We were created to find joy in the midst of life’s ploys.
And we were created to love altogether as one.
But the longer we wait to realize our potential
the more life will steal and yield to reveal.
This is why we must act now
And refuse the lies that have continually driven us down.
Let us sound the alarm of optimism
so we can mend the world’s line of division.
And realize within ourselves that we were created in His vision.
Blue Skies and Sunshine:
Keep your eyes open wide and your mind a blank slate
For the world is ours to discover and to help recreate.
Don’t let fear burden your eyes with tears
For nothing in this life should bring you worry.
Love one another and help your brother
This life is hard to endure without a helping hand.
Rest your head on the chest of comfort
And believe that each day will bring new wonder.
This life we live can be hard to journey
But we mustn’t worry for there’s nothing but sunshine ahead.
I’m calling out to you
but your response is silent.
I gave you a chance
had you only desired romance.
My love was growing
but you chopped it at the stem
And left me lying lonely across the dirt
bearing too much hurt.
I’ve been waiting for the rain
but it seems I now need sunshine
to burn away your silence
and to warm my broken soul.
Love made me a fool
How silly I must feel.
For thinking my heart could ever have a fighting chance.
You inflict this excruciating hurt
Each time you distance your love.
My mind goes up in rage
why can’t we ever be on the same page?
You desire love
You want to feel acknowledged
Yet when love walks your way,
you often lead it astray.
I can’t understand it.
Saying one thing
and doing another.
Why can’t you just tell me that you want nothing of me?
There’s always a reason,
pockets for excuse.
Yet your greatest abuse
has been this radio silence.
Can’t even muster a word
How completely absurd.
Just be real and tell me how you feel
But I suppose that would take courage
A rarity nowadays.
To feel is to be brave
and you’ve gone numb.
But that’s no excuse for this silent abuse.
Trust is a must
I get it,
But it’s hard to reach love when you build your walls.
I’ve poured out my heart
Been left for the dogs.
Here’s hoping now’s the perfect time to move on.
I’ve waited and waited
and apologized for my acts
But I suppose honesty isn’t enough
when courage is lacking.
I’m done abusing my open heart
It deserves better,
Just realize I meant what I said
and said what I meant
Nothing more. Nothing less.
I’m saddened by our goodbye
Not even a proper departure
But this is the mess I must now lay to rest.
Warmed by the sun
and unraveled by the breeze.
My face feels revived;
My lungs can breathe.
Arms wide open
I can’t help but feel weak among nature’s retreat.
The trees bring me ease;
The mountains relief
I don’t want to ever imagine life without them.
How does she do it?
Mother Nature so divine
Offering her earthlings pleasure
each time they step outside.
I can’t help but beam
Through all of Mother Nature’s scenes.
Her love a perfect match
For those willing to drink her in.
For Your Viewing Pleasure:
Cower behind a digital screen,
your eyes now opened to the ultimate viewing scene.
Stuck on the night watch you search for hours
Hoping to get a feel of that short-lived power.
Ain’t nothing but a horn dog is all I've got to say.
A superficial high you can’t let die.
It was a simple fantasy that’s now turned into insanity
Will you ever be able to resist temptation’s kiss?
The mind is deceiving,
Yet you keep on dreaming.
Dreaming for the day when you can take home this erotic display.
Tap the keys
And click the tease
Now watch the screen undress.
Shift your gadget into high gear
Don’t let go until the end of show.
A performance unmatched,
sure to give you a heart attack.
What’s the use in making an excuse?
When there’s no limitations
or tedious expectations.
The sky’s the limit;
The internet never inhibits.
You can let your ego go
Her dainty features stole the show.
Day in and day out
It’s hard to even keep a count.
A count of your lies
and cowardly denies.
You fantasize that,
yet you’re stuck with this.
How does one please your needy spew?
I can’t ever imagine myself in your shoes
But I can envision the challenges temptation may ensue.
I hope you find happiness
in a digital world of unhappiness
Where everything is disguised
much to our demise.
I hope one day you can jump this hurdle
and reveal to yourself why you gave rise to this burden.
We all have desires;
such sneaky liars
What you see is not what you get
You can look but not touch.
In this simple game of mind tease
that never seems to let up.
I don’t ever want to think
about this seductive, little Internet drink,
so please take your obsession
and throw it from your possession.
Because I can’t keep living in a world where I’m not your girl.
Chop off my arms
Chop off my legs
How do you fancy this botched display?
Conform to my ways;
Let’s see how you play.
Bring me deeper into your deviant ways.
I’ve now grown attached
to your devilish latch
A latch you’ve placed on my heart,
No other love can prove strong enough to lift.
I can only hope there’s no going back
From this painstakingly addictive heart attack.
You know it
I see it
Yet out hearts still resist such a beating.
This beating for one another
that only time can truly uncover.
It never stops beating
though its palpitations misleading.
How it keeps on growing
Its enormity ever-showing
into a river of unknowing.
And consistently waiting for a love’s saving.
Time’s are changing
is humanity worth saving?
We groan like clones
about cases so monotone.
yet when things are set right,
there’s still always a reason to fight.
We’re sneaky little thieves
always sitting upon our mounds of greed.
Never quick to give,
Don’t you know there’s millions fighting to live?
We harbor negativity,
in the midst of war and ruthless activity.
Minds set on autoplay,
distract our thoughts from end of day.
When will we get a clue
about the nature of our inevitable doom?
Maybe when everyone’s dead
and there’s nothing left to be said.
There’s no telling when we’ll start knowing.
Knowing how to cure our stupidity,
and this seemingly endless instability.
I really hope, humans, that we start paying our dues.
And stop listening to the voices that have made our minds literal goo.
I so desperately wish for the day when we can turn our needs astray,
to start getting a grasp on the questions we need ourselves to ask.
It’d be nice if we could dash from the superficial trash
And start lending our hands to the forgotten mass.
Because what it boils down to,
is this little thing called love.
And learning how to shed some
to humans we’ve never even heard of.
So take those fists of rage
and turn them into shakes of praise.
For our world is in need of love.
Isn't it about time we stop starving ourselves?
Why is it that I can’t sleep at night?
Could it be my heart that’s given me a fright?
it beats all night…
Pounding inside my head
This incessant sound that simply will not end
Then dawn awakens
Alas! My curse is shaken
But it’s only a matter of time
Before my heart, once again, begins to unwind
Night has fallen
There it goes again
Pounding against my chest
Never offering proper rest
The longer the night goes on
The harder it is for me to hang on
My breaths shorten
My lungs give in
It’s time to put an end to this heart beating
Changing of the Tides:
Intertwined in a love built to last
My heart is now healed
What joy it brings me to feel!
Wrapped up in your kisses
How one goes on wishing
To always be by your side
Through all of love’s tides.
Lost in a world all to my own
Dreaming of never wanting to come home
Why must I part ways with this fantasy of mine?
Am I too much of a dreamer for life’s apparent evil?
What do we have to say for those eager to step away?
Away from a world that romances evil.
You’re twisting the knife
Why can’t you ever play nice?
A little to the left
A little to the right
Right into my heart you drive this dagger
My blood pours out before you
And builds this puddle of sorrow
Yet you drive the knife deeper
Aren’t you a self-fulfilling creature
I’m not worried
For I can bear your pain
I just hope I’m your last
What sort of human would give you a second chance?
If only you’d look at me from this horrifying stance
Then maybe you’d see the man you could never be.
Two lovers destined to be
When will time finally set them free?
For it’s been a long haul
All this endless holding on
So a little longer they wait
Will there not be more to anticipate?
It’s the distance that’s misleading
Yet they still remain strong
Bound by each other’s love song.
Don’t Send Flowers:
Our flower once flourished in the garden of love.
But what was once abloom is now facing its inevitable doom.
For we’ve exhausted all our efforts and have nothing left to nourish it.
Do we plant a fresh seed and start anew?
Or do we allow our flower to wilt and be swallowed up in guilt?
It will help ease the sorrow.
When you go looking around in life,
find the things that make you feel alive
and don’t you dare let them out of your sight.
Seek the hidden
Divert from the forbidden
For there is great beauty behind what the eyes cover
Now open wide and watch life begin to uncover.
Galaxy of Beauty:
You claim my beauty resembles the stars and the moon
High above the clouds
and seemingly out of reach
My eyes twinkle in the sunlight
And offer light to the darkness that comes with night
I cocoon your soul in comfort
And silence your mind’s thunder
It’s my beauty, you say,
that’s out there
Whistling through the air
and soaring about the universe without a care
You have to wonder
How someone so commonplace could ever find a place in outer space
It’s my galaxy you desire and my Milky Way of love
Yet you’re always hesitant
and refuse to budge
Now’s the time to take your chance
So you can finally stop viewing me at a glance
just know that the journey to space is no measly race
I’ll set the pace
As you proceed with caution
Letting down your walls
as your softens
Because not even distance can keep one from the stars and the moon
When it’s simply a matter of how far you’re willing to reach.
Perhaps the greatest romance we are to experience is the one orchestrated by the mind.
The Tales of Time:
Time may be the greatest tale of all
For its story is told by the hours the day
and countless moments that take our breath away
Time carries the ability to enhance our visibility
Our visibility of the world and all there is to explore
Time’s characters are always on display
Leaving and breathing in a world built for play
Time is best defined by the worth in moving on
For time’s struggles may vary, but are mostly temporary
Don’t get discouraged by the length of time;
Its longevity defined by the memories we mustn’t deny.
Please remember me
and all of our love.
The leaves have fallen;
Our season now faded.
Please remember me
and all that we shared
How we were this loving pair;
No other could quite compare.
Please remember me
and the romantic spark.
When I’d lie in your arms;
you reading to me at the park.
Please remember me
and all of our fights
We’d make up the next day;
Your love getting me through the night.
Please remember me
and all of our forms
How we’d never conform
to the love that had come before.
Please remember me
and all of the smiles;
The time we took to make each other laugh.
Please remember me
and all of the sunshine.
Although at times it burnt;
never inflicting eternal hurt.
Please remember me
and all of my insecurities
Whenever I was down,
you never could let me frown.
Please remember me
and all of my beauty
How it left you entranced;
what sweeter a love to romance?
So please remember me
even though we must part ways.
Your love meant so much
in a world that’s clearly forbidden love’s touch.
Stand up tall
and let your curtains fall.
Shout to the crowd;
Make them hear your sound.
toe-curling and heart wrenching
Such a sound your mouth pounds.
Exhausted you now lie
Haven fallen to your feet
Clasps one’s heart gently
How one now wallows in defeat.
The crowd desires more.
But you’ve been left broken
and hopelessly shamed for nothing more.
You swept me off my feet
and overwhelmed me with a sense of defeat
For your love sings a harmonious tune
Leaving me breathless
Oh, how devilishly you swoon
And while I’m deeply entranced by your tune and soft romance
I can’t help but ponder your exit and departure from this simply divine love dance
Is it all thanks to this pursuit of something new?
Have you struck a pot of gold amongst these new, tempting few?
Could it quite possibly be that you’re resisting to conform to societal molds?
I fancy to think it revolves around always wanting more
More of something new
Which begs the question: have you even got a clue?
Am I in the wrong
For believing you would continue to hold on?
Or am I but a mere prisoner to this fantasy that love carelessly permits?
Why do you bore of me?
I gave you so much love
And fancied your appetite
Was it not you who always came crawling back to me?
I groomed your ego and submitted myself to your wretched ways
For my love runs deep
Deep into the trap
You continue to mischievously craft.
Can’t you see me?
I’m over here bleeding
Bleeding a love that should’ve never come undone
My blood a piercing red
Red as the X you’ve marked on my head
X marks the spot
Go ahead, take your shot
For my heart’s bound up in knots
Knots you’ve so intricately tied in a mindset so distraught.
What is to come of this?
Have you not given it thought?
Or are you far more consumed with the love you groomed
Groomed so well
Placing me under your spell
A spell driven by the lies so clearly written in your eyes.
