Soldier

The sun will set in the distance
But my arms will never rest.
The moon will take over the night
But my legs will never stop.
The red rain will fall upon my family
But my body will press on.

The door will come crashing down.
The walls will disappear.
The spirit will drown.
The mind……gone.
The friends I once knew…..fall.

But my head will stay put
My arms will raise
My eyes will stay keen
My hope will secure.

Come storm
Come red rain
Come night
Come day
Come death

I will persevere
I will walk on.

I Got To Say..

I got to say I love you, but I don’t know how to show you
I never felt like this before with anyone
Never felt…
So alive, complete, happy, and in love
You make me feel special
The words you say are perfect
It’s like music to my ears
The way you hold me is loving
It’s like you will never let go
The way you kiss me
It’s like our lips are meant for each other
The way you look at me
It makes me feel that your eyes are only on me
Baby…
I’m falling deeply in love with you
You’re the one I want to spend the rest of my life with
You’re the one I cant stop thinking about
You’re the one I want to wake up to every morning
You’re the one I’m willing to give my life up for
Baby…
You are the love of my life
My one and only

Juxtapose

held together by the infinite by finite glue.

I am just as much of me inside of them as you are you.

I’ve played this game for who knows how long
inside the wonder of paradigm, and I’m waiting to come home.

one moment I am left with pain, and another moments gone.

I watch the shift of the times and wonder just how long.

I’ve given into this treachery to let it turn me inside out

crippled by the comfort when all truth is turned to doubt.

while light bleeds through to show me what I cannot live without.

I look under the rock just to see and the paradox is there.
I split the piece of wood and truth is still nowhere.
I knock on the door with a golden lock.
I say to the mountain move and I’m a blind man with a rope.

I’m held together by illusion, by just one single thread.

trying to let go of letting go before I fall down dead.

I’m a jester in the court of god solving puzzles for a dog

I’m a baby crying for sustenance and chewing on his tongue.

my life is swaying through the mire, this coldest disposition.

in the contrast of my motive for loss and gods sweet juxtapositions.

My Mind And Love

I answered slowly-
They love me much so.
I knew in places everything is known to be true or false,
whilst the rest of you denies incessantly
or agrees profusely
in a misguided attempt to be
as you want to be described.
I think I am loved.
I know.
Not for sure.
Love needs to be tested.
It demands to be proven.
It requires a bit more than cheap words,
just past the point of cynicism.
It needs not to be judged
by accursed skeptics who tell us of the poison called Romeo,
or the 20 indirect ways Rose killed Jack.
it needs to be felt
and heard as it tells the parts of us that ‘always’ know,
in deeper places of course,
to once, just once, glorify nothing with its superior knowledge
no one cares about.
To confound doubt with proof of proofs that love is mine.
They, after being subject to the pedantic scrutiny of the depths of my mind,
really do love me so?

Unlocked

Your arms are my guards,
Your eyes are my brightness,
Your legs are my strength,
Your lips are my sweetness,

Your voice is my harmony,
Your heart is my beat,
Your time is my ecstasy,
Your light is my grace,

My dreams are of you,
My feelings are real,
My heart is a map,
And the center you’ve found,

There once was a key,
Which is not with me,
To my heart that’s open,
Filled with something so pure,

Our hearts are shared,
With the emotion so firm,
It is known to conquer,
And it’s hard to conceive,

My love was unlocked,
Because of you,
It is forever and always,
And is eternally true.

What I Think?

I don’t know why
But you’re always on my mind,
Also your sparkling eyes
Look how they shine
Will you be mine?
Or would leave and say goodbye
I want you because you’re smart and kind
You always look just fine
That why I think you are like
The stars in the dark sky
To me it’s not a lie
That why I strive
If only I would survive
To see your smile one last time

They Wept

“Hurry” she said as her man turned his head
Sixty years now gone in a flash

“I love you” he said with a look of love
In his eyes so deep the doctor cried

“I love you” she said as they kissed without tears
“No more pain” he said softly as he closed his eye

“Hurry” she had said as her man kissed her softly
“It’s over” he told the doctor as his grown children wept

“Goodbye daddy” said the young children to the phone
As the nurse said “Your dad can’t speak but he heard you”

“Is he dead, Mommy?” they asked, as they cried and cried
“Oh no, not yet” their mother said “soon, but not quite yet”.
