you are (more than these words)

sometimes curly, sometimes straight.

light to dark and dark to light.

her hair changes upon season and mood.

eyes shine, glimmer like diamonds.

she’s a springtime song, thawing out the winter’s chill.

her face, smooth and delicate.

her silence says a thousand words; her tone soft and angelic.

her presence, like soft falling snow, graceful and quiet.

the elegance, the beauty, outshines the sun on any given day.

when her smiles make an appearance,

my heart becomes weak, and falls again.

her skin, creamy; glowing.

her heart, caring and giving.

a dedicated humanitarian, her modesty might say otherwise.

a seeker of truth, dwelling within the words.

a wonderful mother, a juggling between life’s acts and little wonders.

a wife that only a man can dream of.

wishful thinking to my reality.

she is a symphony in life.

a rock upon which i can lean on.

a friend no one can be, the best.

you are.

you are more than these words,

more than what my painting can say.

you are the essence of my desire.

oh, my love!, my heart longs when you are away!,

and when you are within these arms, i beg for forever!

whispering kisses

above the rim of the wine glass

her eyes glance up at me;

sipping on a beautiful trance.

i’m gonna go

where in pictures others have just seen;

dare to dream.

today gave me new horizons

to seek and to find;

i get lost in her everyday!

a morning sun wakes

and she finds me by her side;

kisses softly whispering good morning.

i’m going to do

what others wouldn’t dare;

i wouldn’t think twice.

explore a world

where she makes

my heart beat wild,

my breath speaks her name;

she is such!

where the moon lights my midnight sea;

where trees

lined deep along the river of dreams;

reflections bathing in the waters

under the sea of the universe,

i stood upon the mountain top

and found her there

wishing on the same falling star –

above the rim of the wine glass

her eyes glance up at me

sipping on a beautiful trance.

restored

complete.

complete becomes

when you are in my arms.

whole.

whole became

when you restored my broken heart.

i.

i am all yours,

and you are all i desire.

the rain falls

and taps our names on the window pane.

the wind wraps

as the leaves fall and kiss down her neck.

the sun danced with the moon,

all the while her eyes become the stars.

satisfy the sunrise

and touch me with your softly spoken good morning;

my finger tips speak;

softly drifting

atop her soft, tanned rose petal skin.

our deep kisses

linger in such amazement!

complete.

complete becomes

when you are in my arms,

living such a life

with you in it –

whole.

whole became

when you restored my broken heart.

and in today’s news….

to all who breathes

and to all who leaves;

each day we wake,

and each day we take.

as we forget,

we sometimes forfeit.

american holiday mix drink toast,

raise your glasses and let ourselves roast.

take heed to the news that rapes our emotions,

natural disasters make for a false front for needed national answers.

“and in today’s news,

the media molds your mind like paper mache…,

details at eleven…”

 

and yet to all who breathes

and to all who leaves;

each day we wake,

and each day we take.

and as we forget,

we sometimes forfeit.

in the washing rains

lightning sparks,

shining the reflection in the window mirrored.

a loud thunder clasp snaps soon after.

startling the sparrow, he flies through the rains falling.

there, it takes shelter under the leaves above;

watch as the old man walks under the dangling branches,

through the puddle ridden sidewalks.

past the neighbors window,

he walks by and their dog barks.

the rains come pouring down,

and washes away all the dirt;

storms move in and welcome the floods with a fresh scent –

through the mist of fallen drops;  swells the drying riverbeds.

in the washing rains

poor lady luna holding a sign

standing between the center line –

looking for someone to wipe away the pain

filling her empty veins

all awhile her newborn son lights up

and then cries out of hunger –

crying out of hunger;

lightning sparks,

shining the reflection in the window mirrored.

a loud thunder clasp snaps soon after.

startling the sparrow, he flies through the rains falling.

there, it takes shelter under the leaves above;

watch as the old man walks under the dangling branches,

through the puddle ridden sidewalks,

past the neighbors windows,

he walks by and their dog barks.

the rains come pouring down,

and washes away all the dirt;

storms move in and welcome the floods with a fresh scent –

through the mist of fallen drops;  swells the drying riverbeds.

shades of a smile

night sky,

as the moon sails by;

stars act like eyes,

looking down upon slumber ground –

night sky

 

dreams of a deep desire,

act like a movie conspire;

campagne for lady love

and all that could be lost,

in dreams of deep desire !  !

 

typed words of inked ribbon black,

sought words of invisible emotion;

the strength of feelings linger,

but now forgets –

to her, are just these typed words of inked ribbon black.

 

i’ve changed my face

for a change of pace.

perhaps it may have been a game that backfired on me;

but here!, in the shades of my smile –

all that is left is her faded wallpapered mile.

and i changed my face  –

for a change of pace.

 

night sky,

dreams of deep desires;

turned into typed words of invisible emotion

was it i that woke up the giving of a bright sunshine day?

yea! it was i, cycling the shades of a smile

perhaps all in the making;

night sky

anymore

i awoke to the golden crisp sunrise

shinning through the open window pain.

disappointment was standing there,

lurking beside my bedside, time slipping by;

i was cold and lonely.

waking to this summer morning,

there i was –

an empty bed and no telegram delivery.

while the coffee that brews,

waking, i stand here;

waiting, for the things i’ve lost –

to come back in different form.

i stand here in the kitchen

waiting for the things i’ve lost

to come back –

to come back in some different form.

a dear john letter,

and she won’t be coming back.

she won’t be anymore,

but forever a god damn attack on myself.

her amazing eyes,  never coming to this ship wreck.

solo black coffee toast,

yet i knew that some kind of pain was overdue –

a little expected,

but never not this soon.

never not this soon.

absolute can never be certain,

tell me it’s not this again –

she wont be coming back,

anymore,

anymore.

i awoke to the golden crisp sunrise

shinning through the open window pain.

disappointment was standing there,

lurking beside my bedside, time slipping by;

i was cold and lonely.

waking to this summer morning,

there i wasn’t,  and there i wasn’t.

rusted

a once conceived dream lined in silver and gold,

now finds itself crumbling into a pile of rubble and shifts into rust.

here! in the room of once found comfort and privilege,

now easily squeezes and suffocates every drop of light;

leaving one drowning in an invisible darkness.

one sought inside a book of favourable word

for some sort of answer,

but instead made ones guilt stab another in the back;

don’t turn back,  don’t want you back.

but if here,  i find myself at the end,

in a once conceived dream lined in silver and gold

in a room of once found comfort,

now easily squeezes and suffocates every drop of light;

let me crumble and fall into a pile of rubble and shift into rust

springtime

church bells rang,

welcome!

sunday morning sunshine graced.

spring sprung and marched,

thawing!

glorious warmth brimming!

a hammock sways in a lazy breeze –

a lawn mower hums and spews the fragrance of freshly cut grass –

baby leaves flower and bloom

and birds sing a song rejoicing!

baseball!

the crack of the wooden bat –

the taste of a cold ballpark beer.

yes,  spring is here!

it’s a kayak trip down water’s slow current,

it’s a fishing trip with friends to the lake’s edge.

a blue sky with no clouds in sight!

the sizzle and smell of the charcoal grill,

springtime,  where children’s playground laughter fills an afternoon.

spring, once thought of a return exiled,

now proves to be not true.

so today we celebrate!

spring is here,  spring is here!

the church bells rang,

welcome!

sunday morning sunshine graced.

saying good-bye to some sort of yesterday

 

saying good-bye to some sort of yesterday.

in the seeking for,

when the depth of the desire has run its course.

up and down,  down and around –

the roller coaster of emotion.

the loss of a language once spoken,

became foreign and broken.

pick up the pieces of a hope

and my eyes just could never turn away

from such beauty,

established passion that are these words before.

*

oh! but i can not live in everyday

giving hope and opportunity my every breath!

though you’ll never disappear from my mind,

i’ll keep the chance in my pocket,  my heart.

saying good-bye to some sort of yesterday.

oh!,  saying good-bye to some sort of yesterday –

just as i have,

i’ll never be capable to do as such.

leave all these words behind,

leaving them as they are, in a bright sunrise dawning.

weep these exhausted unknown tears nevermore.
