Love in the country

I have an empty cup,
My love lies bare on
my chest. My heart whispers
to her ear, Things my lips cannot
say. The wine is finished, The
cork is thrown, The dazing
ecstasy of fresh roses has lost
its swell, But my heart keeps
beating, My love keeps giggling.
I want anxiety to go, I want to know
what my heart has told. She looks at me
with gleamer in her eyes, Her smile is wide,
Her tears at brink, "What is it my love?"

"Your heart has stop'd beating for a time
but you are still alive. I love to listen to
your silent heart. Surely you make a
country girl know about love..."

THEN THE LIGHT CAME

Only heaven knows the types of hell that I've been through
All them lonely nights I had nobody I could vent to
Boxes of the fresh mint scent Kleenex tissues
When my best friends became a pad and a pencil

I had a hard time dealing with so many issues
Devils do exist they stayed harassing my mental
Images of failure on my pupils for a visual
Misdirected by the misdirect-or of us pupils

Then the light came and finally I could write some
Sun has always come no matter how long the night was
Son will come again so keep some oil so your lights on
Don't become afraid of thunder rolls in a light storm

It's OK to have a down day but don't get stuck there
Even whales every now and then come up to get air
Heaven has a plan, you don't have to go to despair
Keep your head up, eventually you will get there.

A very short poem in response to the shock jocks responding to the Manchester Arena attack.


Shock'ems Razor

blaming all followers
for the actions of a few
is like blaming me
for the hate you spew

~ Ai Weiwei Provokes Kindness ~

Turn it around. Twist it out of scope.
Clear the blurry vision of power.
Let them quake with such might
as to shackle their false charade.

Danger lurks unheeded, but art is not of fear.
Brush out the seed of Humankind that's
not been planted yet, and
reap it on the gallery floor.

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.
-- Emily Dickinson, the master of dark romanticism

I feel you in my sleep
I wake up to find you not here
I lay there
Hands on my stomach
Sweating
Wondering
Was
I dreaming really
Were you really there
Everything felt so real
Your kiss
Your caress
I feel you all the time
In my mind
In my dreams
Through out my days
The unmistakable smell of you
Reality
Your only a thought
But I feel you
I swear
I see you at a glance
I sit smiling across the table
At you
I cuddle up at night with you
Your presence is all about me
Reminding me
Constantly
Of what I miss
Like clouds in the sky
Your there, I see you
But you could never reach you
Never physically able to touch you
We always in the end
Get what we deserve
I deserve to have these never ending
Thoughts of you
Waking up not next to you
