CRYSTAL TEARSPage 5 of 151    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
CRYSTAL TEARS

She places the red rose on the top of his stone
Sitting down slowly, she talks to him again
Not knowing where else to go anymore
She says her prayers and says “Amen”

She tells him how lonely she is without him
And how life will never be the same for her
Wishing she could lay down with him
Or have things back the way they were

Though that will never happen, she knows
She must continue on by herself forever
And the love they shared is lost now
She understands her past life, she now must sever

Crystal tears, freezing as they are falling
Shine on her face, the reflections of emotions
A reminder that life is full of unexpected pain
As she lives on with her life’s demotions

MAINTAINING LIFE
Posted: 4/16/2005 10:27:06 PM
MAINTAINING LIFE

So she continues on with her desolated life
Never the same, forever without any sensation
Going to work, driving her car, or even sleeping
She passes through her days, with no real concentration

People speak, and she just nods and turns away
While all the while her heart is caving in inside
Lost in time, numb to the reality around her
Ever since her one and only beloved died

No sense of direction, anesthetized to the future
For now she’s living her life in total isolation
No trusting or depending on the world to help her out
Going forth, with no consciousness of navigation

LAST SUNRISE
Posted: 4/16/2005 10:58:20 PM
LAST SUNRISE

She tried so hard to carry on
No feelings left to share
Knowing this wasn’t working
Sensing no more she could bare

She made a deadly drink
For, no one could hear her cries
She walked down to the bay at dusk
And watched her last sunrise

She drank her sweet poison
And smiled with the realization
That they’d finally be together
In their ultimate destination

No one will ever know
If they joined together at last
For, judgment sends you where you go
Depending on your choices in your past

SPIRALED LIVES
Posted: 4/16/2005 11:48:59 PM
Going back to the Gemini thing.
Never knowing if I could ever put real trust into another realationship.
One side of me is still so scorned, the other is the, "get on with it" side.

SPIRALED LIVES

One spinning endlessly
One of celebration
Spiraled lives
Such frustration

Separate individuals
Seems like, in mind
One who loves
The one she can not find

One just where she is
So free and content
No love lost
Nothing spent

One needing comfort
One stands on her own
One seeking affection
One at ease, alone

Will they blend together
Like I was before
Capable of trust again
To believe the next explore

SURRENDER
Posted: 4/17/2005 10:29:15 AM
SURRENDER

Giving in,
To take the chance
Holding the core
Of sincere romance
Letting go the wrongs,
Done upon your heart
Separating the old and new,
From the start
Opening your soul,
And excepting passion
Smoldering the past
Into compost ashen
To begin again,
To start the basking
Surrender your love,
To the one that’s asking

COMPLETELY HELPLESS
Posted: 4/17/2005 9:00:20 PM
COMPLETELY HELPLESS

No matter the words we say
No matter how hard we try
Theirs is the choice to make
To leave us asking why

Completely helpless to them
Entirely powerless to enlighten,
All the dark thoughts they have
That seems to some how heighten

We can not take away their pain
We can only try to ease it all
Yet, we can not make it stop
Just catch them when they fall

So what do we do from here
How do we make it worth the while
To show them life can change
That it can be so versatile

NATURES LULLABY

NATURES LULLABY

From the tallest trees that sway
To the wild rivers that surge
I love watching them all, and
Their beauty that does emerge

Sunshine streaming everywhere
Airstreams changing course
Finding nature’s sacred lullaby
And discovering its lovely source


From the birds singing
To the rustling of the leaves
Every song is different
As each of us perceives

GLOWING STAR

GLOWING STAR

Looking out into
The blackened night
Thinking things are
Just not right
See the glowing star,
Shinning so bright
In the luminosity
Of the moons light
Make a wish
Upon that star tonight
Close your eyes
And let it take flight
Now pray the wish,
That you recite
Will bring you all
The stars delight
As this wish,
Brings to you, new incite
Everything will begin
To be alright
So wish upon
The glowing white
Wish it now,
With all your might
To relieve you of
This present plight

BLIND TO ALL WE SEE
Posted: 4/18/2005 9:12:16 PM
BLIND TO ALL WE SEE

I used to think that blind,
Was what was happening
To my father’s eyes

Yet, he sees more
Than what we’ll
Ever finally realize

To listen with
Your heart of gold
And feel the splendor

To live your life
With unlimited ends
And never surrender

For he has better sight
Then all of us
Completely combined

He sees the beauty
Deep inside everything
So who is really blind

FOREST BASIN
Posted: 4/18/2005 9:52:28 PM
FOREST BASIN

All secluded, water bay
Hidden far, tucked away
For us to relax in, or just to play
Took advice to spend the day

Trees of shelter and cool shade
Thick as the densest everglade
Surround the basin, which we wade
Deep in color, dark as jade

Total solitude, in which we need
To find the love, we have freed
In the basin, we took the heed
To plant the purest of our seed

MEADOW OF HOPES
Posted: 4/19/2005 11:25:37 AM
MEADOW OF HOPES

Every flower holds a possibility
That blooms with a positive dream
Unfolding the petals of existence
To set forth your new regime
Walk through these hills with me
Up and down the fervent slopes
Amidst the aromatic flora’s
Within my meadow of hopes
Every chance you take can change
The way your dreams come true
So hold my hand and stroll along
Let’s envision what we can do

INIQUITY UNDERSCORED
Posted: 4/19/2005 12:39:52 PM
INIQUITY UNDERSCORED

Once was the days of iniquity
Thus, now they’re underscored
For now, I walk above it all
Harmony and friendship, my reward
Passed the times you held me down
Accepted the choice you quickly made
New found serenity, I now benefit from
Never again will I ever feel betrayed
Life has taught me to try to forgive
But your injustice upon my heart
Will never fade away from my mind
And in my soul, the scar will never depart

So to forgive, maybe some year down the road
To forget, no, I can only learn from the pain
To go on, yes, I’ve already begun to breath
To love again, unknown, if my trust I could regain

MY BACK YARD
Posted: 4/19/2005 8:57:58 PM
IN MY BACK YARD

Butterflies are back
Fluttering their wings
The cardinal’s song
He so perfectly sings
The robins building
Their nests up high
Bald eagles soaring
Through the sky
Stream is flowing
At calming speed
Trout are swimming
As they need
Trees are budding
And turning green
The bumble bees
Found their queen
Rabbits frolic
So carefree
Love the tranquility
It shares with me

SENT WITH GRACE
Posted: 4/20/2005 11:52:07 AM
SENT WITH GRACE

In my cold and darkest nights alone
Came a friend, who made me smile
Charmed me with his witty humor
Made my lonely nights all worthwhile

He makes me laugh through it all
Till tears of hysterics start to run
We talk about emotions of long-ago
Deepest wounds, that others have done

We really try to understand, each other
We share our views on today’s society
We compare our thoughts of future dreams
And listen to each other vent our anxiety

There’s a reason, we met one another
A reason to fill our empty space
A friendship created by the heavens
He must be an angel, they sent with grace

NO ONE STOPS
Posted: 4/20/2005 1:26:23 PM
NO ONE STOPS

More distant, and faint
As darkness falls hourly
Through the moonlit park
Strangers passing somberly

No one shares eye contact
Not one does try to speak
They pay no attention
Her dreadful crying shriek

She lay there dying
Her skin drains white
Remembering the knife
That gleamed in the night

That’s all she had seen
Attacked from behind
Pulled back in the brush
For no one to find

As morning comes
She lies with blue lips
By her hand lay her cell phone
In inch from her tips

As the police arrive
The crowd grows near
She could have been saved
So it would appear

Yet, no one listened
Or called the cops
Because no one cares
And no one stops

A PRESENCE DRAWN
Posted: 4/20/2005 9:05:31 PM
A PRESENCE DRAWN

Almost as if speaking silent words
Soft shadows brush along the wall
The hair stands up on your arms
Your attention it does enthrall

The air becomes heavier as you breathe
The faint scent of decay fills the room
Cool air passes over the nape of your neck
Your soul it wants to entomb

The lights waver only vaguely
The plants leaves bend just a bit
Feeling it inflowing inside you
Sensing the vile power to transmit

And then nothing moves
Now as quickly, it’s all gone
Yet the feeling remains
Of a presence drawn

ITS FATE IS OURS
Posted: 4/20/2005 9:41:21 PM
ITS FATE IS OURS

We fail to admit
Darkness resides
Within our minds
It always hides
Coming forth
In minute waves
Anger and envy
Is all it craves
Bringing it out
Amongst our peers
Constantly changing
And shifting gears
Creating chaos
And bitter scars
It’s inevitable
Its fate is ours

UNTAMED GAME

UNTAMED GAME

Sparing their life
The victims live
Only the torture
He shall give
Leaving his memory
Inside their head
Injecting his venom
Watching it spread
His evil crimes
Shadows their flesh
Markings raised
From his thresh
Letting them go
To die a shame
Is just the start of
His relentless game

SUN IS OUT
Posted: 4/21/2005 9:00:16 AM



SUN IS OUT

Sun is out
All is good
Just can’t wait
To walk the hood
Air is crisp
Day is long
I think I found
Where I belong
Park is close
For kids to play
Grill set up
To start today
To eat outside
First this year
Brauts and steaks
We shall sear
With pop
And chips
Raw veggies
And dips
Can’t imagine
Anything better
So that’s our plan
Unless, change in weather

Sam

Had to send the evil twin away today!

I'M GOING TO BE ALRIGHT
Posted: 4/21/2005 7:18:11 PM
I’M GOING TO BE ALRIGHT

I woke up this morning, with a new feeling
I know now, I’m going to be alright
I’m finally happy when I wake up
No more depressing and lonely fright

Took me a while to realize, that it’s ok
To be on my own, and to continue on
To make a new life I enjoy better
No longer to feel so withdrawn

I know now that time is what I need
And in time I’ll be even better than today
Simple answers and simple solutions
Are the signs that will show me the way

MOUNTAIN HIGH

Climbing to this objective
We are now reaching the peak
Destin to keep going on
For months this is what seek

Forward bound, step by step
As day after day goes by
Gaining strength and height
We found our mountain high

No backing up or backing down
We have fought for our liberation
Our goals are coming into view
For now, we plan our celebration

BEHOLDING EYES
Posted: 4/21/2005 9:20:20 PM
SOARING ON SHARED WINGS

If the day comes, you need to use my wings
They will always be here for you, no strings
If you’re not able to find the strength to fly
I’ll help you; together we can soar so high
Friendship is on a divided compassionate street
If you fall this time, I’ll place you back upon your feet
That’s what wings are for, to fly with grace
And to help the ones, who’ve left their trace

BEHOLDING EYES
Posted: 4/21/2005 9:53:36 PM
TRUE ANGELS IN FLIGHT

Incredulous to the miracle already known
Only to waste their God given soul
To throw it away, as if it were trash
Never achieving their spiritual goal

No such thing as the walking dead
Just lost spirits, with no faith left
Succumbing to the loneliness
Feeling only the tragic bereft

To blind to see the true beauty in life
Burry themselves in the dark of the night
Never to live to the future impending
Never to distinguish true angels in flight

GLASS SLIVERS
Posted: 4/22/2005 12:19:32 AM
GLASS SLIVERS

I lay my head upon your chest
Shallow echoes, of rhythmic beating
Telling the story of what went before
Once a life of perpetual mistreating
Someone broke your heart of glass
Leaving behind only shards and slivers
Your blood pouring slowly outward
Calming currents of crimson rivers
Scarlet tears rolling from your eyes
The telling of the past, begins the rains
Falling helplessly into the emptiness
Of your future, the unknown remains
Taking the time to re-piece your heart
Create the blessings of your surround
Reflowing all the emotion of life and love
Giving it the chance to once more pound

Sam
