Captivated - May 31, 2010


I heard a voice to which the rest of the world was deaf
From the deepest reaches of my memory
The voice grew louder reverberating in my mind
Until escape from the sound I could not see

A familiar voice tantamount to pleasure
Awoke the passion I have inside
Relentlessly engulfing me like a living creature
Removing all desire, I had to hide

Now I find myself here breathing fast and quivering inside
Awaiting like a suspended bead of water
For the voice to wash like the tide over me
I am such a willing absorber

Black - May 30, 2010


Midnight is black without the moon
As if there is no beating heart
An utterly light-less existence hangs in the balance
From which my spirit wishes to part

The glorious moon is that which feeds the river
Of my soul's own living grace
This darkness steals my flow from me
As if my very life is held in place

Without the moon's luminous glow to shine
Upon my ever seeking face
My spirit wanders aimlessly questioning
Why this mishap has taken place

All the air surrounding this blackness here
Has become too thick to breathe
My body continues to exist on this plane
However, my spirit is no longer free

Suddenly I feel the warmth of the rising sun
Breaking free across the blackest sky
My moonless night has ended and my spirit breathes
As I stay to take in this wondrous sight

Imagination - May 29, 2010


Come walk along the cliffs of uncertainty
While you search for something delightfully new
There wrapped in an air of wondrous mystery you will find
Where your imagination can take you to

Softly cling to the shadows of infinity
Tenuously locked away in an unpredictable hue
Lost forever in a world that you can create
As you wander away with the moon

Radiantly shining like a bead of clear water
Such as a taste of the morning's first dew
You can come away to this world and discover
How you can become a part of this too

Multi-colored butterflies will be dancing in the forest
Where the whippoorwills sing to the trees
In voices that light up the air so sweet
Like golden honey stolen from the hives of bees

Here the untamed sea can be seen forever
Stretching endlessly across it seems
And you can ride the crashing waves of ivory foam
While gliding on a current of dreams

The winds incessant voice will ring right through you
Whispering of the magical things to be seen
When you come away to this fair land of Eden
One must be prepared for most anything

Gate's Of The Spirit - May 28, 2010

Gate's Of The Spirit

I heard thunder rumble from the edge of the dark horizon
While in the distance lightening flared
Then a perfect silence turned time backwards
As I breathed in the sweetest air

Such unexplained feelings for which I have no words
Suddenly echoed through my locked in heart
A longing for something that left me defenseless
With absolutely no route of escape to embark

An uncontrolled fire emerged as if from my fingertips
Leaving my spirit open with no place to hide
Yearning for a satisfaction I have never known
While melting away all of my pride

A love as pure as untouched spring water
Mysteriously and deeply ruled by the fates
Had broken the chains wound around my heart
And flooded into my spirit's own gates

Trouble - May 27, 2010


There is impending danger in your eyes
I can see from across the room
You have held my gaze for way too long
My attention you have consumed

I have looked away and back at you
 Each time I do I find
You are staring right into my eyes
As if you can read my mind

  You stare right through me as if you know
Every little secret that I hold
All my private thoughts and wishes too
The ones I have never told

I know that you do not know me
Yet, still I feel you do
And if I do not look away right now
Trouble will ensue

Our Hearts Dance - May 26, 2010

Our Hearts Dance

When you hold me in your arms
Our hearts beat together in perfect time
With a rhythm so soft and low
That's felt like thunder next to mine

Our hearts dance together to the music made
So close, as if entwined
Harmony's created with each move they make
As your heart beats next to mine

My heart will dance with yours forever
Step by step we'll take
We'll keep the rhythm so soft and low
Even when the thunder breaks

Flower In The Ash - May 25, 2010

Flower In The Ash

A lovely flower grows from the ashes of the fire
Blooming splendidly all alone
No trace of char or remnants of the flame
Still the smell of the smoke isn't gone

There is no telling residue on the petals
One would never know the flower's closeness to the flame
Stop and smell the rose so lovely in the ash
Then see if you still feel the same

The flower is a heart that has continued to exist
The only way it knows how to survive
Still blooming in the ash but untouched by the fire
But alone will the flower continue to thrive

There will come a day when the flower of the heart
Can move away from the ashes of the fire
Learn to live again in a garden full of flowers
And the smell of the smoke will expire

Hidden Underneath - May 24, 2010

Hidden Underneath

The secret night of the needful storm
Lies thundering on the plain
Releasing static of unknown warmth
Into the coldest rain

All the winds of change were released
Throughout the grassy meadows
As lightning strikes upon the peace
And illuminates the shadows

The secrets lying hidden underneath
The grasses fine as feathers
Emerge released from all their sheaths
To see what is the matter

Tiny faces there with wrinkled brows
Howl in increasing need
As they stare at me with mournful scowls
Like I've disturbed their peace

In silent fear my only thought to flee
Not a sound to make I dare
Then with a sigh of such relief I see
That their mother isn't there

Restless Spirit - May 23, 2010

Restless Spirit

Take this restless spirit that I hold
So deep inside of me
Calm and soothe and make it rest
Teach me how to breathe

Slow my mind down from this pace
Enable me to see
That all this constant running
Steals my peace from me

Show me how to just be still
And listen for awhile
How to take a rest from everything
Sit quietly and smile

Take my wandering heart and make it still
Just long enough to find
What I seek and need the most
To gain some peace of mind

Shine - May 22, 2010


Can you picture what is inside the glass
What radiates from there
Looking back at you like a pearlescent jewel
Fit for a comb in the queen's noble hair

Did you know the beauty, which you carry inside
Should never be hidden from sight
But shown to an aching world for all to see
Do not hide your wonderful light

Shine your radiance for every needful heart to see
Such a warmth and joy you will inspire
Uplifting hearts hurting in need
Your light is that which they require

Now hold your head up and smile in the glass
Go out in the world and seek those souls
Smile at each one you see
Share the light, which you hold

Love Grows - May 21, 2010

Love Grows

To you I give my little heart
Watch it grow with me
One day when we are big and strong
I'll have yours you'll see

Hold my heart in your small hand
Wait 'til I am grown
I too then will be a man
You will be my own

I will wait right here for you
Until then I'll play
My heart will grow in love with you
And you'll be mine one day

Liquid Fire - May 20, 2010

Liquid Fire

You flow like liquid fire of flame
Throughout the soul in me
Rippling gently through my veins
Sweet swirls of ecstasy

The fingertips of hands of steel
So gently brush my heart
So captivating in all their will
To flame the fire they start

A resistance of this gentle flow
Would be futile in its quest
As the heart desires to never go
Or leave that which it loves best

So I breathe you in as silken air
Pressed against my skin
With sighs of sweet release I bare
The secrets held within

Pulled Under - May 19, 2010

Pulled Under

I am drowning in the music I hear inside my head
Yet I am the one playing the song
I touch upon each note with my fingertips
Then wonder why the music continues on

I love the exquisite sounds I'm entranced by the beat
This melody possesses me inside
I feel myself pulled under by this song I create
Yet from this music I can't hide

The surge surrounds me as I play on and on
Wondering what will become of me
But I can't stop the music as I so love the song
This melody that plays inside you see

Come and listen to the music that plays inside my head
I will play my endless song for us two
Come be pulled under by the feeling you will surely get
When my music possesses all of you

Tomorrow You Can Play - May 18, 2010

Tomorrow You Can Play

The dream world beckons your little soul
Your eyes are so heavy now
A million stars rock as you roll
Over the dream ship's bow

So very fast asleep soon you will go
The Sandman's on his way
No need to fight the ebb and flow
Tomorrow you can play

Now close your little eyes and sleep
Not the tiniest word do say
I will pray the Lord your soul to keep
And guide you on your way

In the morn the brightest day will peek
To shine upon your little face
And once again you'll play hide n seek
Tomorrow you can play

Silent Noise - May 17, 2010

Silent Noise

A listening heart hears voices that loudly boom
From the soulful eyes of the quietly sad
As their silent noise fills the room
Where nothing is ever said

Such echoing silence is shattered by tears
Visible only by the tracks
What is left behind only the heart can hear
Emanating from invisible cracks

They speak to the heart without saying a word
You can feel their presence inside
Like the tiny wings of a hummingbird
You feel what they don't confide

My Heart Visits You - May 16, 2010

My Heart Visits You

Soft and Silky trails of satin kisses
I will leave upon your brow
To remind you of the one who wishes
To be with you right now

You'll feel them like the coolest breeze
Filled with the warmth of wine
Each time I visit you I will leave
My cool warmth behind

Your eyes will never see me there
Yet your heart will know it's true
As you'll breathe in my scent so fair
Each time I visit you

I'll leave satin kisses on your brow
Laced with the scent of my perfume
To let you know I miss you so
When my heart visits you

Understanding - May 15, 2010


What splendid warmth may be found inside
A heart that's scarred from pain
Which hold's the knowledge of a past that's died
Leaving understanding to remain

Each scar is an aching remnant of painful blows
Which have cut the heart like a knife
Inflicted there by the hand of woe
Held fast by grief and strife

There are hearts you find who heal and gain
A strength beyond belief
Whose warmth can comfort those in pain
Through understanding bring relief

Embroidered Heart

Lovely fields of vision seen
In all the days of you
Sewn gently in the heart of hearts
With silken threads of blue

Embroidered in the sky by stars
Drifting as to sea
Stitched in love by the hand of time
Forever yours to be

Memories sweet a picture there
Of love I have for you
Held in place by knots of love
Forever to hold true

Framed in love in the finest gold
Caught up in eternity
To stand in halls of love divine
For all the world to see

Vintage - May 13, 2010


Treasured vestiges of sunbeams
Shine down in radiant light
Revealing thoughts of dreams
Which have long since taken flight

Light reflections pass into the glass
Of tiny hidden cracks
Held captive like a bird of song
Who has sang at last

Another age has ended new
Time has stolen past
As all the beams of light review
The song they must outlast

Beauty seeps into the cracks
The song is held in tune
Captures light that never lacks
Or ever leaves too soon

Fields Of Poppies - May 12, 2010

Fields of Poppies

Bright fields of poppies blushing red
Are in my dreams of you
Streaming down the grassy hill ahead
Lies a river of crystal blue

Each night in dreams I wait upon the hill
Slowly picking flowers there
To place in vases upon my windowsill
And grace my wavy hair

With all my lovely flowers in full view
I wait for your sweet face
To meet me like you always do
In our secret place

In my dreams I always run to you
When I see you near
To show you what I picked for you
And hold you close my dear

May 11, 2010 - Lost Breezes

Lost Breezes

The breezes of spirits long lost at sea
Aimlessly wander the shore
Whispering shadows of what they should be
Not sure where to blow anymore

Their voices are heard in the crashing
Of every wave I see
Held fast to the lightning flashing
So brilliantly over the sea

A lighthouse they seek out so restless
Lost souls in search of peace
Drifting hearts blowing on winds of distress
Waiting for their storm to cease

I feel them as if passing right through me
As the wind catches my hair
All their sad faces you'd be able to see
If only you were there

Woven Softly

Love lost in treasured slips of lace
The glow of crimson wine
Woven softly in love's embrace
Forever to be entwined

Held fast in visions of your caress
Ribbons tied in silk and gold
Whispers felt of fingertips of bliss
In memory now I hold

In dreams of scarlet passion flies
Your kisses soft as dew
Rain down like mist upon my sighs
In all these thoughts of you

Not Broken

Such an ethereal vision we have here
In this we call our own
As if untouched by human hands
Like nothing ever known

If perfection existed in this time
This we have would be
In this special world of ours
Shared by you and me

Whatever reason would we have
To mar the face of it
To please the world and change it all
So that in this world we fit

May 08, 2010 - Moon Dancing In Your Hands

Moon Dancing In Your Hands

Exquisite chains of unseen hours
All lie in fantasies
In countless dreams of unbloomed flowers
Moon dancing in your sea

Petals soft on beds of sand
Tremble at your touch
As their spirits are awakened by the hand
Of love's own velvet brush

Soulful cries of blissful glee
Echo to the moon
Resounding from the heart's own sea
Left enamored by the bloom

Beauty sweet and triumph slow
Swirling in the sand
Painting strokes of blooming glow
Moon dancing in your hands

May 07, 2010 - Create


So riddled with pain and despair
Giving up on all you desire
Abandoning dreams you hold deep inside
You’ve lost the spark to your fire

What made you smile long ago
You have laid aside
All of those dreams you aspired to reach
You've buried them deep inside

They can be found once again
Look deep inside it’s true
All of the dreams you once had
Are still inside of you

Pick up your pen and your brushes again
Your instruments and your voice
Write, paint, play and sing
Create and rejoice

May 06, 2010 - Battle Within

Battle Within

If the heart is the master of it all
Where does the mind fit in
Is there a battle going on inside each of us
A war going on within

Does the mind ever take on the heart
Attempt to take control
To change all the heart desires
Could it be so bold

If the heart is truly pure in thought
Impartial in its ways
Then by what means does it think
If the mind has no say

Is it possible for there to be peace
To stop the war within
For the mind to just rest in the heart
Held close there as best friends

May 05, 2010 - Myself


See the misted windows tinted gray
From ashes of the fire
Enveloped by the blowing wind
Of all that I desire

Thorns of feelings passed away
Prick the heart of me
As I look through the tinted glass
To see what I can see

I saw moonlit nights I walked alone
Beside the roaring sea
While looking for the world I knew
The place that I should be

The answers then I thought I found
As plain as plain could be
But looking through the tinted glass
I saw myself set free

With such joy and elation felt inside
I opened the window wide
No longer looking through tinted glass
I found who I was inside

My vision no longer tinted in gray
I could finally see
That the only place I need to be
Is where I can be me

May 04, 2010 - Magnificent Bird

Magnificent Bird

I awoke this morning from my little bed
In a world unknown to me
A magical world full of mystical creatures
Resounding with mystery

Magnificent birds with wings of gold
Hailed me with their song
The strangest happening ever to see
As I was able to sing along

No simple trills issued forth from their beaks
But words I heard with my heart
An angelic melody so sweet they did sing
From this world I wished never to part

Forever in this magical world I will stay
To my home I shall never return
As now I have become a magnificent bird
Because, their song I have learned

I Can Feel You Here

I love the way you make me smile inside
The magic of your kiss
My heart you touch with your own
Your own I can't resist

Your touch is that of such surprise
Each one is that of fire
I can't help but yearn to feel your touch
You are my one desire

I feel you close, as if next to me
When you are nowhere near
Each time I close my eyes and think of you
I can feel you here

May 02, 2010 - Saddest Song of Old

Saddest Song of Old

Do you find yourself holding on to nothing
With absolutely everything you have
So afraid that you will lose
What you never had

Are you just letting go of everything
You've found so easy to obtain
While crying out for that
You wouldn't want if gained

Take a look at what you have
Listen to its song
Perhaps you'll find it's the very thing
You've wanted all along

If you find you're never satisfied
With anything you hold
Then your heart may be singing
The saddest song of old

May 01, 2010 - Said In Jest

Said In Jest

Tangled sheets of mystery sweet
Engulf your every move
Yet my contemplation of reality
I cannot remove

To think I know or understand
What's never been defined
While believing in the innocence
When there is none to find

Seen and said while taken back
What does one believe
That which is seen and heard inside
Or that which does relieve

What is meant and what is said
The same you often bring
But does your laughter take it back
Or lessen any of the sting
