By The Ocean

Laying here staring out across the ocean,
listening to the sound of waves roaring,
gazing up at all of the glimmering stars,
lighting up the sea like a dance floor.

Counting stars as blessings life has given me,
thanking God for each and everyone of them,
so relaxing just lying next to the shore lines,
trying to draw in the last bits of the night.

The full moon shining ever so brightly now,
and the waves calm down to a gentle splash,
a light breeze pushes softly against my skin,
I grab my sweater and drape it around me,
as I go to leave I stop and turn around,
just to admire the ocean one last time.

Destined To Win

I’ve been waiting a long time to win
I definitely deserve to get a victory
I need to win this one for me
I really need the money.
Yes, I’m from New York
I was writing for so long
Never got recognized
I continue being strong.
No company wants to sign me
I’m very talented
I got the certificates
But not the recognition.
If I win this contest
It really must mean
You’re the only ones
Who actually love me.

Comeback

When you feel lost, please know that I am there
To hold you and kiss you, never should you despair.
When feelings of doubt cloud you, find me in your heart.
Know that I am with you; I never want to be apart.
When the world gets you down and you feel you may never pull through
I will stand tall and fight all your battles for you.
There is nothing I wouldn’t do to have you with me
All the time, in my life as we deserve to be.
Happy, gracious and full of smiles
No one can come between us, for a billion miles
You are my soul-mate, in this lifetime and the next
Our love will outshine, outgrow and withstand any other love’s complex
You love me like no other, and I do the same
I simply cannot wait to have your last name.
With strands of care, you dried my tears
your gentleness, dispelled my fears
You carry me through pain and sorrow,
With promises of a better tomorrow
My days are brighter even through the rain
Your loves pumps through my every vein
And I will fall for you a thousand times over
Because you are my hero, my savior… my soldier.

Chaos

Chaos and Evil go hand in hand,
Sometimes it becomes too much to stand.
The pains that weigh on every soul,
Weight on me most of all.
The desperation that comes with being alone,
Makes me want to run home.
But that home is where the chaos resides,
The people I love reciprocate.
The hatred I sense from entering the doors,
It hits me fast and permeates my pores.
I never know where the chaos is created,
And chaos and I will forever be fated.
The battle I fight stretches wide and far,
That’s why people can’t see my battle scars.
The hate is great, but the chaos is greater,
A life full of chaos isn’t fair.
Sometimes they merge,
For this reason I grow discouraged.
The rage that comes with this chaos is large,
It comes in strong like a barge.
I can’t continue holding back the pain and tears,
Like I have done for so many years.
When the wall falls and I lose all,
My true, close friends are the ones I call.
Friends come to my aide when I need them most,
And my friends are the best, don’t mean to boast.
They understand my problems as I do theirs,
We help each other fight our fears,
So when the chaos comes with its partner hate,
I run to those who can best relate.
The struggle will end and the chaos will die,
They tell me I don’t need to cry.
My friends are the family I really need,
So when I am down because of havoc or mayhem,
I can simply go and say to them,
“You will never have to grieve of my loss,
For I know this is only Chaos.”

Selfish

I want you here with me forever
I don’t want to share you with anyone
I want you all to myself every second of everyday
You exceed my dreams and expectations
Going way beyond my wildest dreams
Angels are marveled and jealous of your beauty
Your kindness that built heaven
Your love is the reason I inhale and exhale
I hate our time away even if you are going to the next room
I want you all to myself give me all of you
I love just being around you and you don’t have to make a sound
I am holding on so tight so you can’t see the real me
The one that isn’t confident enough to keep you
Lie awake every night from fear of losing you
I will always be selfish of you
I promise to always be selfless toward you

Waiting For The Muse

I received a computer
to occupy my fingers
to occupy my heart
with a true current
with a true feeling
I sat down in front of it
staring at the white screen
I was tapping in my mind
a thought after a thought
they showed up like ghosts
without a shape
without a sound
they simply showed up
I set my eyes on the white screen
I set my fingers on the keys
I set my heart free and light
letting my mind to visualize of a shape
yet unknown
yet unperceived
every time I struggled
I lost the muse
as though the muse never showed up
The eyes were draining
fingers were aching
and my heart was lost
somewhere between
despair and sobbing
I went to bed letting my mind
to slumber with ghosts
With a pen and a paper
in my hand
I went to bed letting my mind
to slumber with ghosts

Ruby Aura

Flames of the aura glow in a ruby light,
Caught in the luster of these sacred fires,
Our spiritual passions so aligned in the night,
With an emerald desire our souls ascend higher.

With a diamond shine you say your mine,
For our immortal quest was no small feat,
Now with a love stronger then the force of time,
Our passions of nature align as our lips meet.

Together we cast our sacred spiritual desire,
Unto the place where the infinite does dwell,
Mesmerized by the embers of our eternal fire,
Through the souls weave of a Druid love spell

Our essences now unify in a higher place,
With enlightened minds together we see,
The cosmic destiny of our star-bound race,
In both the nature of you and the passion of me.

It

I see it
Feel it
I close my eyes
They are transparent
Bright
White
Yellow
Warm
I consume it
Breathe it
Absorb it
Reflect it
Others take mine and I take theirs
We share it
Each our own kind
It bounces off each soul
Dances
Until it doesn’t
It stops
Sometimes the stop is ignored
And it still continues
But most of the time a new one forms
A dark kind
It doesn’t bounce
Or dance
It is shot
Sharp
Cold
Deep into them
Imprinted
Stamped
But not the fun kind
Until someone puts light in it
Carefully
Gently
Lightly
Cautiously
Lights it up
And IT’s journey continues
