what are we

Are you capable of loving me like I love you

seeing me the way I see you

believing in me as I believe in you

who are we and what are we to become

how should we live… how do we carry on

do we grow together or stay the same

what are we to be to one another

can you be my love and I be yours

will you be my friend and confidant

you tell me all your deepest secrets

even the ones you keep from yourself

I tell you mine no matter how dark they are
what are we together
are we afar even when we are together
can we be the same as when we are apart
are we connected though there are miles between us
do you miss me as I miss you
do you desire me as I you
 even when I become old or gain too much weight
do you still see me as beautiful as I do you
enjoy my company even when the days seem mundane
laugh at my jokes though they are not funny
do you feel joy when I am near the way I feel for you

can you give me what I need and do I give you the same
do you invest in me like I have in you
we’ve signed a contract together
can you honor that… can you honor me

will you blame me for all the ills in your life

or do you count me as your healer

am I the one who causes you much strife

or am I your defender and conqueror of life’s challenges

what are we to gain from being together
the joys and the struggles… the highs and the lows

will it be heaven or hell at our final hour

are we weak or are we strong
do we hold God’s power together

what is it that makes and defines us
are our wills the same… do we believe the same… feel the same
love the same… worship the same… fight the same… stand the same
are we the same body… one flesh… one mind… one spirit
do we walk one path and share this life together
will you be mine forever and I yours
are you my husband and I your wife

Be With Me

Come and be with me

I am so eager to give up my heart

give it to you if you merely ask

lie to me and tell me you love me

go against my better judgement

fight back my fears just to be with you

pierce the silence with our laughter

strike the darkness with our light

fill in the loneliness with our love

rescue me from my tears…don’t let me drown

I want to be found

place me back in the sky…its where I belong

if only you would come with me

leave the world behind and escape with me

we could light up the sky like the stars

be the stuff of wishes and dreams

if you would be with me

I Feel It

I feel it all around me
your touch… your radiance… your light
beckoning me to come closer
a ray of sunshine
bursting into my life of darkness
filling me up with gladness
crashing down upon my madness
wiping away all the sadness
I feel it all around me
like a laughter deep down within my soul
coming up and coming out loud
no more echos of screams and shouts
your joy has filled my heart
mended the parts that were broken
all my fears have been put to rest
and all my tears run out
happiness has taken over instead
I feel it all around
when I’m with you and no one else
my soul lifting to the sky
flying among the clouds with ease
you put my mind at peace
you take the time to explore me
there’s no doubt you adore me
I feel it all around me
a shower of love all over me
poured out in the day and the night
you’ve got me drenched in ecstasy
wet from your touch
you get into me
I feel it all around me
in all the things you do
and all the things you say
your best laid before me
you drew me in
made me new again
made me love again
made me apart of you
the light

galaxy writer returns

I’ve been searching for someone to love
someone to put my trust in
but you keep me at a distance
I don’t quite know what you want
but I got an idea of what you need
some how you look right through me
I’m not made of glass
I’m the diamond sparkling in the night
you’re always looking down at your feet
when you should be looking up at the sky
that’s where I fly
you talk about the stars and how pretty they are
but you seem content to play with pebbles on the ground
some are even stuck in your shoe
kick them off and come fly with me
don’t you know I’m a galaxy writer
I write songs across the heavens that the angels sing
I make musical notes out of comets and dreams
write a sonnet with the planets
tell stories with far out galaxies
if the stars are my stepping stones
and the milky way my swimming pool
what do you think I could make of our love
create for us a new universe
place a new world there with a new Eden
make paradise out of our laughter
discover new treasures out of being together
living forever in a moment
stop walking on the ground
take a walk with me in the skies
boy don’t you know you can fly
stare closely in my eyes
its where the future lies
exploring the heavens
till the end of all time

What happened

what happened to when we were wonderful
what happened to when we were cherished
when we were new
and our whole lives were still before us
before the world despised us
can the bliss of our youth be recaptured
yet retain the wisdom of age
all our sins dissolved to just a blur
where is the unconditional love we once possessed
we used to be so blessed
now like a curse we are battered with hatred
filled with the world’s dread
only the worst in us is celebrated
we lose ourselves to our addictions to misery
we should be chasing life’s mysteries
and all its treasures
they cannot be measured
spend our lives exploring
watching tv all day is so boring
what happened to the life we once had
and all the simple things that made us glad
the whole world has gone mad
we tear our brothers down
stand by and watch our sisters drown
no wonder God doesn’t come around
what happened to the light we had inside
dimmed by all our lies
could it be that its all died
we put all our hope in being reborn
I believe our faith may be forlorn
we were given eyes so that we could see
when did we go blind
we were given ears so that we could hear
but we don’t bother to listen
we were given minds so that we could think
when did they become filled with deceit
what happened to when we were innocent
what happened to our childhood fantasies
we’ve forgotten what we used to be
replaced with all the world’s miseries
denial of what the world should be
afraid of what we could be
what happened to us

What I did on December 21st

I was waiting for the world to end with drinks
lots of merriment and friends
we had our fill of tequila shots and wine
passing the time for doomsday approach
being told the only thing left will be the roaches
living la vida loca at the last hour
rejoicing till the end while the world is still ours
the world was supposed to end on December 21st
I was only preoccupied with quenching my thirst
the time passed us by and no one had even noticed
it was six after midnight and there weren’t any firework to show us
no mushroom clouds lighting up the skies
no giant meteors raining down destruction from space
no alien invasion…dang
another day of reckoning averted
I still had time to flirt
the guy at the end of the bar was cute
I unbuttoned my shirt and hiked up my skirt
Armageddon is not till 2020 or so its predicted
there’s still time for a lot more sinning
and room to repent before the ending

Waiting for the world to fall

waiting for the world to fall
still hoping some how we will evolve
waiting in vain for the world to change
peace and unity seem so far out of range
there’s a stain on man’s heart
carved out with weapons of war
tearing us all apart
marked with the blood of the innocent
paid for by all the money we’ve spent
we should be trying to take a stand
make a new world for every man
but we’re too busy being fake
God spare us for all our sake
we’re so consumed by our possessions
don’t know if we can be saved even with our confessions
waiting for the world to fall
still hoping we can come together for us all
waiting on new years eve to arrive
praying we might survive
another year past of selfishness
selling our souls for them to perish
we believe we can’t live without the wealth
sacrificing our principles to increase our value
we need to drasticly change our point of view
the devil does exist and he believes in you
gambling with our hearts while they get crushed
the devil is laughing at us
the angels must be so disgusted
and God is probably fed up with us
who are we going to call
when the world falls

In the sky

my heart is empty
been screaming in it
trying to fill it in
tossed a match inside
trying to cast some light in it
my head is full of stressing thoughts
been banging on it to get them out
all I can hear are screams and shouts
probably echoing from my heart
the two are so far apart
my body is completely numb
beating myself to gain some sort of feeling
tried to place where its coming from
and not sure what its about
feeling so trapped all I want is out
I take a step forward
but I’m getting pushed back again
I’m lost and caught up by my past sins
tearing at my chest where my heart should’ve been
want to escape and feel alive again
be free and fly away on the winds
fill my heart up with love and exploring
put my mind at peace with the skies meditation
send me to a place of restoration
where the sun can shine upon my face
my heart and mind can be joined as one
and my spirit be mended with its grace
a place of healing… in the sky

Lives Stolen

lives stolen…
taken away in a gun flash
robbed of the future…
the one you wish you had
what was it that caused you to do it….
that caused you to be so mad
to make you want to blot out another’s light
then turn around and take your own life
what turned you so dark and grim
destroying those who wanted to live
was your life filled with that much anger
rage was all that you could see
fear was all that you could hear
hate was all that you could feel
you wanted to leave this world in a blaze of glory
leave a gory mark that no one would forget
so you took the innocent with you
knowing no one would ever miss you
replaced their happiness with your anguish
their love for your selfishness
their lives with your cries
for what purpose did you achieve this
and done just before Christmas
left behind are empty beds
and unopened gifts
no smiling faces with hugs followed by I love you’s
broken hearts scattered all over the nation
none can give any explanation
doubtful none ever will

A Break

a break up is…
the end of a connection
the end of a friendship
the end of a love affair
and the end of companionship
it is…
a break in kindred spirits
a break in two minds
a break in the heart
and a break in your life
but…
all breaks can and do heal
