    Nothing within us so reveals our most perfect and
    Raw emotions as the genuine tears that we shed.

    Trying to do
    the things I adore
    where did my hours all go?

    Sometimes for hours
    I work on a poem
    what do I have to show ?

    Counting my carbs
    and calories too
    why is weight loss so slow?

    Behind someone
    while driving, I ask
    how slow can one guy go ?

    Even at Home
    bad manners ensue
    when will peace start to flow?

    Of life and death -
    the actual truth
    will it be good to know?

    They ask me why I love you
    I stop and pause a while
    Could I say that everyday,
    you gift me with a smile?

    You're always there beside me
    No matter what life brings
    and when you're near, it's all so clear...
    My heart and my soul sings

    /I love you for your mind
    and I love you for your stand
    I love you for each moment that
    I'm blessed to see your face
    I love for your kindness
    and for how you've made me see
    I love you just for who you are
    and who you make of me/

    You're like a ray of sunlight
    that warms my frozen soul
    your starlit eyes, that twinkle bright
    is how my heart you stole

    You're like a rolling river
    that flows right to my core
    immersed inside your passion is
    what makes me long for more

    /I love you for your mind
    and I love you for your stand
    I love you for each moment that
    I'm blessed to see your face
    I love for your kindness
    and for how you've made me see
    I love you just for who you are
    and who you make of me/


    They ask me why I love you
    and I don't know what to say
    the reason that I take each breath
    is to see you every day...

    They ask me why I love you....

    Standing in the old house
    A strange mixture of feelings erupt within me
    My roommates Depression, Loneliness, and Hopelessness
    Greet me with strangling arms and leering grins
    I don’t fight them anymore – somehow they are a part me
    So together, in this house, in this room
    We endure the somber solitude of the day

    A sudden chill fills the room
    Death enters – its foul breath chokes me
    My three companions prostrate themselves
    Pressure builds in my bowels
    Bile rises in my throat
    A heavy weariness fills my bones
    He’s calling – hissing my name
    I can’t breath

    Death surrounds my soul – crushing me
    I hear groaning . . .
    Strange guttural sound -- it’s coming from me
    Deep painful darkness fills me
    I beg Death to take me . . .

    Through the open window
    A gush of wind enters
    A sheer curtain hanging comes to life
    It’s spirit lifts inwards and up beckoning me to dance

    What is this wonder?
    A limp ragged curtain – faded, stained, frail -- has life
    Reaching toward me . . . frayed fingers of thread motioning
    Old friends rush to me – Joy, Hope, Love
    Death’s grip slips – I gasp a breath
    Looking up I see the open window
    Boarded by old bare wood, hard with age

    I realize it’s daylight now – soft shadows
    A curving road leading to the water
    I can taste the saltiness in the wind
    Trees in the distance
    A calling from the sea
    Seagulls, waves, laughter

    Joy breaths into my nostrils
    Leave this place – Depression cannot hold you
    Simple pleasures I will give you
    Cool breeze on a summer afternoon
    Laughter of friends
    A walk in the garden
    A book
    The Sea . . .

    Depression laughs in my ears
    Through that window lies heartache, treachery, poverty, misery
    It will chew your insides up – blood will pour from your lips
    Pain and suffering awaits if you leave this house
    Death waits to take you home
    An end to this constant noise – the peace of total emptiness

    Another breeze and Hope fills my eyes with light
    I see colors – vibrant alive filling me with warmth
    Leave this place, take a journey to the sea
    Let light fill you and be your guide . . . see -- opportunities abound
    For laughter, love, forgiveness . . . for life – abundant life
    See the rainbow upon the Sea

    Hopelessness rushes toward me
    Kisses my lips and whispers
    Light burns and blinds
    Enslaves you
    They will see clearly your secrets
    Spotlight focus – ridicule scorn . . . ugly disgust . . . self-hatred

    Love rushes in and embraces me
    Light, fresh, empowering
    My heart leaps with pleasure
    Arm and arm she leads me to the window
    Much pain and sorrow – yes . . . also Love
    A powerful love that transforms, refreshes . . . frees
    Breathe deeply of the Sea air – fill your lungs
    Go – you are loved deeply and completely

    Looking out Looking in

    Throughout my life I've kept unto myself
    my feelings and my thoughts held deep within,
    and stored like dusty books upon a shelf,
    preventing my emotions to begin.

    The thoughts I’ve been reluctant to confide
    lest hidden dreams left to the world to find;
    these inner thoughts that always did reside,
    are buried in the attic in my mind.

    But as I’ve gotten older now I see
    that maybe inner thoughts I should convey;
    perhaps to share these thoughts was meant to be, not keeping them forever locked away.

    And now as thoughts descend the attic stair,
    I feel somewhat exposed as soul is bare.

    Think long and hard and tell me-what is love?
    I’m thinking of the normal answers, and they appall me!
    Tell me love is chocolate, flowers, and sex;make my day!
    I pity those who believe that, because that is not love
    No that is materialism, that is society ruining something special
    Love, well it’s different for everyone-depends on the person
    But I’ve got an idea of what it is to me…
    I get on a plane and
    I get off the plane and I’ve bought a ring for a man I've met online
    I confesses to him that I can’t live without him; He gave me nothing
    Well, not exactly nothing-I suppose
    He gave me happiness, made me feel special, He gave me hope
    I sent him the ring,
    And we are on the way to getting married
    Foolish, young, naive-blah blah, everyone has an opinion-no one keeps it to themselves
    They tell us to give up, it might be a trap, after all you met online..
    Yet, we've planned for our first two kids already
    We've planned a savings and plan to buy a house
    We are some of the most pro active young adults you’ll ever meet!
    But we are not in love right?
    Because I can’t kiss him yet, or hug him-I can’t love him?
    Let me ask you-when a mother is pregnant, does she love that unborn baby?
    The answer is yes…so why can’t we be in love?
    The answer is simple-society says it’s a recipe for disaster-
    Well, society, I hate to tell you this, I love him…
    Love is the feeling in your heart, knowing you're appreciated…
    Love is being able to tell someone anything and everything…
    Love is giving up sleep, and dealing with it to see his face…
    Love is my long curly haired grumpy bear…
    Whether society accepts it because “love” must be this physical thing
    Or they look down on it because it’s hopeless
    Nothing stops me from waking up when the sunrises here…
    And the sunsets where he is…
    …and I say those 3 words, with every bone, muscle, tissue in my body quivering in joy…
    …nothing has or will ever stop me from saying I love you to him
    I know what love is, and it's a beautiful feeling
    Love is simple…
    …love…
    Love is what you make it.

    Some of us ,perhaps are not cut out for this perfect world,
    Life tells its story as the moments unfold.
    Here we are sharing this Space, this Age,
    Like odd misfits, sharing this societal charade.

    The lonesome lover, whose love has died,
    The angry rebel who trains children to fight..
    The child who grew up on the streets,
    The girl who left home in shame for her deeds.

    Countless lives, strange stories,
    Empathy, sympathy,sadness, joy, anger, love.
    Each tale has its own fragrance,
    Its not just the beginning or the end,
    Its a bit deeper than that.

    Conformation to conventions bind our minds, 'Freedom' is born inside.
    Little control that we have over others' opinions,
    Free yourself, free the mind-

    The world transforms, the vision changes,
    Hope blossoms, Love makes its way inside,
    Life grows, meanings surface,
    Peace reigns... and the courage returns.
