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”.

High Sun

With our sun travelling through the sky like a plane up high
His life initiates moon cycle changes passing by

Endless ceremonies repeat color appearing midnight blue
Never-ending rainbows soaring around frequencies known to you

The sun orbited by the earth in the solar system
He or she’s like a satellite recording the pastime of them

Exact logbooks repetitiously bright in our eyes mind
Now iris movements befriend the core of the conscious kind

Together with the sun settling over ocean horizons soon
Eyes compute the new reflection of the moon

My initiation is relied on like a mother’s womb
Enabling accuracy for scholars who grant all to bloom

Without the sun there is no warm timepiece of life
A kind person is not blind of thoughts concerning planet strife

No child deletes infinity for an active family tree
Do you cease to exist if there is nothing of you to see?

Eternally lives will populate their actions like a watch
Reveling the heavily burning sun too hot for us to touch

Entering funeral fire takes your son into the universal memory
Remaining life waits their turn to enter a powerful entity.

Trying

I love him as much as I love me.
I watch him with hopeful eyes.
Wishing one day to be just as he,
But I know that anything I do will only receive disappointed sighs.

He slightly smiles at what I believe I do best,
All doubtfulness flees my body,
I am sure he will finally be at rest,
But all he does is say how my work was shoddy.

To think that that almost smile built up all that confidence,
Once again, to have it torn down,
My effort was coming in an abundance,
Yet I still say I will try harder, only to receive a frown.

I paint a smile on my face,
But I can’t help the lone tear that streaks my cheek.
I should have known this would be just like the other days.
Shouldn’t I already be used to the usual critique?

No matter how hard I am trying, one look will have me unnerved.
For him I’m the epitome of imperfection.
For him the others will always have a special part of his heart reserved.
Can’t he see that I’m vying for his affection.

I Love Mornings Best

I love mornings best
when clods of clouds lay bare their fists,
the flirting of the birds sounder wings opening
the shower of early light and mist.
I love first morning’s breath breathing
the same primitive air. We are exacting our shared
space, the flowers spawning where the air
breathes a hiss to other odes,
and the skirting villages of insects
all wrestling awake to dawn’s box of crayons.

The Relationship Game

In this game you don’t have to be on the defense, play some offense,
This way your teammate will be loose before you play and not tense.

Spend some time together and go over the game plan,
The opponent is lies, deceit not even a human.

Cheating is not an option, you have to practice hard,
By playing in your gym and not in someone else’s yard.

The clock has started and you feel prepared,
But you have butterflies and you are scared.

Trust in your teammate, because you drafted them first,
You may be losing now, but it could be a lot worse.

The score is 40 to Love, don’t hit the ball into the net,
Don’t argue, make your point, so you can win and not get upset.

No need to do this on your own,
You should know the play, this is not pee wee, you are both grown.

It’s not necessary to be the quarterback, you can be a receiver,
The ball is in your court, all you have to do is be a believer.

Stop listening to the fans and listen to your coach,
That’s the man upstairs, after the game who you have to approach.

Sometimes you need some luck, so get your four leaf clover,
This is a game that you hope will never be over.

Of these situations people are notorious,
But if you just work together, you can be victorious!
