..Just be careful what ya say,
you might give that little soul away.
will you throw away these days?
what you wont find there tomorrow...

Then you wont wade out so for,
where you cant stand on your own.
I'm not going to wade,
with my feet in the water anymore...

Word..on..street..is
your physically tired,
with life's up's and down's
only crashing into fire..
but courage you faced,
now your set free..
in some twisted notion,
you still want what you hate..
as if you were morning a son,
or a daughter, or morning a death,
crazy we love
yet equally hate,
while few understand...
estranged being normal,
and how pain from the past;
and all that we lost........
shameful deceptions
no matter the cost,
looking back at that person
It never was you,
but now your sober
it hurts to the soul,
and now you are left,
no longer escaping..
cant run and hide
from the mistakes you were making..
I see your pain
and feel your strain
desperate broken years,
from wasted youth over the tears,
and over again...
you will never go back,
I believe in you friend.....
and my prayers will always include
the new you,
from start to end...

nice!!!



Liquid Death


I drank death down and laughed,
I imagined myself a prince among men,
I loved and loved my quaff,
I never wanted it to end.

I paid hard money for a little death,
The cheapest quickest kind,
In order to forget myself,
For a way to suddenly be blind.

But it never fukking worked,
I feel I've been miserably duped -
I'm still here and life hasn't changed
After all that death I puked.


Keep on keepin' on sistah!!!

Escape from the trappings of life floating beyond a tranquil moon
drifting along the waters in this crescent shaped balloon
knowing that tomorrow is never promised here today
so be a drifter with a purpose and start to make your way
using God's... life protector when rescued you are found
and step out from that ledge my friend before you drown
settle down from your dismay and ease your troubled mind
before you capsize and immobilize this vessel known as time

...sky..I will too come to you
and light up your mind in brazen thunder,
as the rain falls down upon your youth...
as I befriend the sun..while you began,
while staring to really live again,
...no matter the rhythm or reason..nor season..
as your eyes wide past the horizon,
giving us all so much more to believe in..
for its never to late to alternate your fatalistic state..
from the failures that impede your view...
despite your revetment structures wall
that shelter all your broken dreams,
now come true...
when clouds filled with change
come to you..

Where the Sidewalk Ends


There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.
and life begins--again!!

The bridge will only take you halfway there,
to those mysterious lands you long to see.
Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fair,
and moonlit woods where unicorns run free.
So come and walk awhile with me
and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known.
But this bridge will only take you halfway there.
The last few steps you have to take alone."

the last few steps you have to take alone
where the cant's never really can--
can't run from the pain my friend,
unless you run to a far off place
where magical rainbows glow
deep in the mind of pretend--
a place that you can never make it own your own
unless you have a friend
like the one you had as a-kid
the one only you could see
talked for hours upon end
where the side walk ends....
so, if run you must
run run as fast as you can..
never looking back again
run run to the very end
where t s w en...........d....s........................................................................................................................

"A plain ole poet
with ADD
I was gonna say somethin' profound
"Hey look at THAT tree."
I love trees that grab me
forcing my imagination to roam
It's odd how places foreign
are the ones
that
I
call
home
I feel like I should paint a picture...
But alls I got is crayons."....Quote:)

melted from the burning sun..
now all that can be found
are crayons dipped in liquid love....
crazy, how love's passion and desire
can fuse both love and phoenix fire
together as one..
when lovers share their crayons,
in a place beyond the sun...

Whisper in the yard and turn the trees all into toys
Lay there on the ground, and turn the dirt into your joy
From what I see and what I know, it's all been boring lately
So I suggest we trade a question mark in for a maybe
Time your riddles right, and make a point that has no sense
Make sure that you're smiling, and the money's been well spent
Innocence and ignorance, it all goes hand in hand
I'm not sure that I'm right, but I hope you'll understand
I hope that you're still searching for the start that has no end
And all the plastic people have now become your friends
Before you start to drift and your soul begins to scream
I just wanted to tell you that you're listening to a dream ......................................................

crayons dipped in liquid love
how long will you be really gone??
will you tell me if i stood
on the edge and was holding on??
for the `day of your return,
when again you come back to me.
crayons dipped in liquid love,
I will be waiting patiently..!

Sometimes on certain days
That seem to have no end
Pain and fear have their way
With every breath within
The scenario's play over and over again
Until you realize it's only the veil of vanity
And we all have tortured ourselves in lust
For desire only dies when we turn to dust
Just realize the consequence
Beware of clever friends with silver tongues
bringing gifts of innocent fun
They know your weakness if they are a good con
But it's their guilty pleasure and you are but a toy to play upon
Just remember the consequence
Never forget that what is right for some
May not be right for you
Examine everything for Ash you have the heart that beats
Believe no one including me
And if you fall in love again
Please let it be with God above
As Jesus said:
Don't put new wine in old wine skins
I believe he was talking about religion
And how they believe that their churches were the kingdom
But the kingdom does not exist in any hall
Truth is a pathless journey
But don't believe me
Find out for your self
And on those days that seem to have no end
Please believe me when I say
That a certain joy and silence
Will enter you
I believe the Christians call it grace
Amazing Grace!!!

how sweet the sound when spoken
with words that whisper..

crayons dipped in liquid love
how innocent we are if God above
hears our cries were found..

crayons dipped in liquid love
how do we open up our broken
soul that has been shattered

crayons dipped in liquid love
God's mercy and his grace
are profound and everlasting--love

Prayer of Francis of Assisi

Make me an instrument of peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is despair, hope; where there is sadness, joy;
where there is darkness, light.
Grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled, as to console;
seek to be understood as to understand,
seek to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Train roll on, on down the line,
Won't you please take me far away?
Now I feel the wind blow outside my door,
Means I'm leaving my woman behind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
My baby's gone with the wind.

And I don't know where I'm going.
I just want to be left alone.
Well, when this train ends I'll try again,
But I'm leaving my woman at home.

[chorus]
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
Tuesday's gone with the wind.
My baby's gone with the wind.

Train roll on many miles from my home,
See, I'm riding my blues away.
Tuesday, you see, she had to be free
But somehow I've got to carry on.

"My heroes had the heart to lose their lives out on a limb
And all I remember is thinking, I want to be like them
Ever since I was little, ever since I was little it looked like fun
And it's no coincidence I've come
And I can die when I'm done

Maybe I'm crazy
Maybe you're crazy
Maybe we're crazy
Probably.."

"I'm not afraid to take a stand
Everybody come take my hand
We'll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just let you know that, you're not alone
Holla if you feel that you've been down the same road".....ello love...(still singing)..

I'll leave this with you. You don't mind rhyming.

ah love

some memories
I have to grieve
ah love
why did you leave me?
you took yourself away
and yet
you're somehow there, believe me
I don't know how
I'm tender now
with past regrets to peeve me
did all I know
to let you go
for love you did deceive me
and still you creep
into my sleep
ah love
why did you leave me?

she writes....
"wears a black man like an accessory"
wearing anyone....
we do that, don't we
sometimes
when imagining what others see
a new friend could be just an accessory....

until we can see past the subjectivity
until we can feel what is real
until we find not everyone's blind

for those who can see
can feel intuitively
when one is overbearingly
wearing someone like an accessory
or being worn like a piece of jewelry
honouring the beauty
but only superficially


hugs, ash!
