Walking alone..
Yet not alone
feeling sad...
a need to let go
feeling great pain
anquish inside
She takes a deep breath
and walks away
A restless spirit
A broken soul
waiting on the edge
survival cuts deep...........

Thanks Breath
Hi OM long time eh?
thanks you both for the notice

Hidden feelings,
down deep inside
tears held back
I would not cry
So A front I project
An Image of me I protect


trying to fill the hole your Death left
I longed to be free of all the pain felt
I'll never be more than a thought away from you
I know you"ll be waiting, when my journey is thru......TUK

Deep Thought

Three faces of past friends looking into the blackness
Faces of concern but there is nothing that they can do.
Flashes of light surround, as each face grows scared.
The light is intense as the blackness begins to shift.
Feeling dizzy I look around.
The three faces spin and spin around as the light,
Flashes faster and faster until, SMACK!!!
The room is dark and still.
So dark and quiet it’s like death itself.
The light comes back slowly
As figures appear in a circle.
I am forced to move closer and closer.
Not wanting to see what they see
But it cannot be helped.
For I have no control.
Reaching this enigmatic place I shake wildly
Not understanding why I look around.
Those three faces I saw earlier
They are now crying out weeping
For something or someone, I do not know.
I am forced to look at what they see
Everything starts to flash again
As I draw closer and closer
I hear screams of fright and plea.
Finally the last flash and everything is clear
As I see a girl that I know grabbing for her life
I cannot watch this but I am forced anyway
I try to put my hand out so she could reach
But alas what ever held me made sure
To keep me just far enough she could not reach.
I start to shake, fear, cry, and rage with fire
Of 1000 souls but I was just held looking into
The desperate eyes, knowing that I could not help
As I look she comes up again and again
Asking for some one to help her.
Finally she does not come back up anymore.
And I weep and weep clawing at the water
Trying to find my friend
But it is of no use for everything is fuzzy now.
Growing more light and foggy
I come back out of this thought with rage
So great I fear of it.
Calming down I cry that I cannot stop
Seeing that I could not help
I begin to weep even more
Finally I feel nothing.

Speak from your heart
let the words fall free
speak of anger
and lost loves
broken promices and pain
lay these words upon the pages
out where all can see
to speak the thoughts
that till now lay hidden
in the deep recesses of your soul
encapsulated in a world their own..........

Naked I lay
The sun shining upon me
thinking of you,
feeling...
Its warmth upon me
the smile upon my face
the glow I feel inside
to feel your embrace
As I long for you beside me......TUK

I jotted this down a few yrs back(back in 2002--for her 4th b-day) for my grandaughter...Om,thought provoking,Tobs so tender a heart...

Why You are special....


Because...I watched you come into this world,
Because...you are my first borns, first born,
Because...thru you, I live on,
Because...you are an extension of my dreams,
Because...of the way you would snuggle into my chest,
Because...my blood runs thru you,
Because...you see the world thru innocent eyes,
Because...of the way you smile at me,
Because...you see things with your heart,
Because...of the excitement and wonder in your eyes,
Because...of your great delight in surprises,
Because...the wonder in your voice, when you ask me a question,
Because...I taught you to climb a fence,
Because...you are carefree,
Because...of your pure and infectious laughter,
Because...you love me for me, unconditionally.............TUK

Nice writing Om...



Go ahead...laugh,laugh at me!
What a fool you made me out to be,
You played your game,oh how cool !
How could you be so dammed cruel?

I thought you loved me
I thought you were the one,
But now I clearly see
That you were only having fun.

Was it a bet you made with your friends?
"Go ahead" they said," take him for a spin,
See what he's worth,he would'nt care"
Sure! why not? It was only a dare.

The game you played so well indeed
There was no love nor lust, but merely greed,
I gave you my heart, my soul,my life
You gave me some memories that cut like a knife.

Practice makes perfect, or so they say
You must have had plenty, for you you knew how to play,
You would think I'd learn from the past mistakes
Just how to tell the real ones from the fakes.

Leggy Love 1985?

I watch you every day
you give your head a saucy toss
you preen and strut
it makes me long to
climb on your back
and ride you
in dancing, prancing circles
with the dew on the grass
and the joy of the moment

She guards the door to her heart...
A place where LOVE once embarked...
Now filled with seeds of doubt...
Hidden feelings scattered about...
A voice crying deep inside...
in the recesses of her mind...
Can or will he hold me close...
when it comes that I need him the most?...

Drank I have, from the chalise of heartache and pain...
To trust again? of whats to gain?...
Awake from the darkness, where my heart resides...
a soul longing to be fully whole and alive...
Much time is lost, with no Love felt...
An ice encased heart? impossible to melt???
Have the strength to look for the sun...
Finding your way thru it, you have yet begun.... TUK

tears
soul's raindrops
watering
nurturing growth
from roots
of pain
peace
and knowledge
blossom
into flowers
of love
and compassion

the urge beneath the solid
wrestles damp tendrils
in massive sleep
pulsing bundles, interwoven,
soil-bound,
cluster and mutter in darkness
under frozen loam.

prophetic groans from sleeping roots,
drowsing bulbs thrust ever skyward,
groping for release,
nurtured by frozen muck.
seed-cases soften with promise
of piercing light shafts.

we curl ever inward,
caressing our own roots,
waiting for the cleansing dawn.

morning in late april (for j)
Posted: 2/6/2007 5:50:07 PM
we spilled over into that dawn
my hair, turned fiery liquid
splashed across your chest

you scooped up the night's laughter
and poured it back to me

caught in your wave,
overturned, upended, i rose
closer to your surface
with each stroke

finally emerging, dew-soaked,
breathing the sweetgrass-scented
sunrise

slumber
oh lumber
you soft footed creeper
you stealthy
sweet swoon
drowse a bit deeper
all snuggled
and huggled
with Polly the sleeper
the sandman doth come
he's the pleasant
dream reaper

the knife
of words
does not cut
here
the fabric lies
unwrinkled
feeble synopsis
seldom plows
new furrows
********
groove
is in the
heart

Om, your writing has been strong lately, I've really been enjoying it....

Sometimes it's all for reason.

We can dive so deeply in the passion of now
the current is strong in the sea of love
look in my eyes to see how I feel
hold onto my hands and remember to breathe
before we go under the waves of desire
my heart is a raft of shelter
as we ride the crest of pleasure
to the stable shore

Gently I tread entering the door,
Careful my heart, least it be torn...
Whispers of dreams , that long to be free,
Awaken the woman, that stirs within me...
Breathless with desires, A need to let go,
Passions primoral, the ebb and the flow...
Leave me not, a broken heart in tow,
the desire to feel again, for my heart and soul grows...
wanting to trust, fearing the past,
give me a reason, to be free at last..........TUK

A heart broken, not once but twice,
Shattered and torn, encased in ice....
My heart is caged, where is the key.
This learning to live again is killing me....
Taxed I am, at the cost,
waiting on the edge and feeling lost......

Now close your eyes and make a wish
the universe at your command
bestowing dreams we cherish
across the starry strand

you only need to seek
and consciousness fulfills
for though we are unique
intent coheres our wills

from first, last
