Passionate

Leave a comment

Many words in our language

To describe the things we experience

But only one of them can express

The love that you and I possess

Passionate

A fire raging at times out of control

Yet forges ever stronger two souls

Burning bright in white searing heat

Together at last form one, complete

Passionate

Like a storm at sea raging

Huge waves of power crashing

Swells rise and fall once more

Till they slide into the gentle shore

Passionate

Wind howling through the night

Nothing can resist its might

Making trees bend and leaves fly

Our love moves clouds through the sky

Passionate

Like flowers blooming brilliant bright

Soaking in warm sunlight

Sharing for all their loving beauty

So filled with love they inspire envy

Passionate

I promise to always keep the fire

To keep you safe through storms dire

With you, soar on our love’s wing

Keep our love always blooming like Spring

Old Blue Jeans

Somehow when days are filled with stress

I find that it often helps to dress

In something comfortable to wear

Like my oldest most worn out pair

Of frayed and faded blue jeans

They’re torn and pulled at the seams

But still when I pull them on my legs

The pressure melts from the days

Of deadlines, memos, expectations

Supervisors condemnations

Perhaps it’s simply how they fit

Whether I clean the house or sit

Watching shows that entertain me

Picking at the hole around my knee

Sipping black coffee hot and steamy

Imagining places more dreamy

Than the drudgery of modern life

Seems like little more than strife

Yet my old blue jeans remind me still

That life can be adventure, a thrill

So I’ll wear them, and wear them again

Because the real journey has yet to begin

Business

Leave a comment

Been really busy and neglecting my writing lately. In an effort to get back on the horse, I’m writing about the business in each of my three blogs’ styles

Business why do you bother me?
What have I done to thee?
You always are so needy
With you I’m no longer free

Like rocks weighing me down
As water fills my lungs I drown
Lost in darkness cannot be found
Screaming without any sound

Sucking life from my veins
Laying in bed body filled with pains
I cannot leave yet cannot remain
No way to win but playing the game

Business you steal my life
Dividing up my soul with a knife
Cannot keep pace with your fife
Nothing left but depression and strife

Never Let Go

Leave a comment

Today my heart broke
As I laid down and spoke
Soft words to my darling son
As his life of burden begun

Gripped with fear that cannot
Be defeated or even fought
Though I would battle anything
Can we defeat anxiety?

Your tears ripped my heart away
Give me the words I need to say
To soothe your pain and anguish
I’m desperate this ache to vanquish

If I had the weapon
I would end the confusion
If only my love and embrace
Your anxiety could erase

I’m becoming desperate my son
To guard you from this season
It pains me as your father
That your world is becoming darker

I would take your fear and pain
But my hopes are all in vain
I promise I’ll fight with you though
I will never give up, never let go

Black White
Left Right
Fight Fight Fight

Race color
Children’s future
Angry, hostile, furor

Blinding hate
For evil’s sake
A horrible fate

Twisted mind
Against mankind
All of them blind

Tap, Tap, Tap

Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Have no more time to spend

With expanding your mind
Or hunting treasures to find
Improving your body
Or strengthening your family

Nothing but Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Only left with your best friend

Eyes fixed downward
Bow to your lord
Bent over like peasants
You lowly subjects

And just Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
Only this till the end

Slaves to the device in your hand
I beg your to break away if you can
Rejoin a world of relationships
Love people and forge friendships

No more Tap Tap Tap
Send Send Send
You can heal, you can mend

Be better than a tapping drone
Feeling so connected but really, alone
Stop allowing the drain of your soul
Let go and make living your goal

Welcome New School Year

Leave a comment

The bell will ring
Come on in
Hopes and goals bring
Students as school begins

Please have a seat
I’m glad you’re here
It’s wonderful to meet
It’s a brand new school year

If last year disappointed
Leave it far behind
It’s not so much important
Those marks, they don’t define

I have so much to teach
So many things to learn
There’s lots of goals to reach
Many pages we have to turn

Fear not my students
I will lead the way
We’ll explore many subjects
And learn more every day

Please come in, you’re invited
The school year’s just begun
I’m so thrilled, delighted
We’re going to have so much fun
