I don't care what you write......Page 3 of 46    (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)
its the ones that got away that fool our memories
blurs what was into more what might have been
the ones that never look back to see us wondering
why they fled just to do it all again

if variety is really what they're seeking
then shallow is the deepest they will know
doing the same handshake with so many
means its off to the clinic they will go

as long as its away from me

I asked God for all things, that I might enjoy life.....God gave me life, that I might enjoy all things!

I don't know where that came from, but I love it, and try to live up to it.

300, 286, & 307- Inspiring!




Left here in the darkness

she finally began to see the light
that noone was riding in on anything
(white charger or rusty bicycle)
to save her from the dragons
that she'd let into her life


struggling with her bonds
she strained against this awakening
herself in shining armor



a lucid vision that calls to birth


this changeling soul that stirs within
that will not be confined


boundless now with sword in hand
tearing down her own tower
something metamorphosing



stranger by the minute


stronger by the breath
rescuing herself

& thanks for the kind words, mmmmy and ash!

The dawn turned to dusk, and caught me napping!
for a moment, I panicked,
then awoke, only to realize
it was all a dream!
as I looked out the window,
I saw the sun laughing,
I shook my head with a smirk,
and we laughed together.

is there a better way to start life??

and the sun caressed my cheek
with a warm spring kiss.

Sun caressing my cheek
Spring kisses, warm at play
Every larger-than-life flower
Adding to the day’s bouquet
Sunshine wherever I go
Unpacked silk veil today
Clear sky, glinting songs
Danced the blues away
It was just a ‘phone date’
Words under moon’s
Inimitable luster
Feeling carefree as a convertible
Tooling down Pacific Coast Highway

I don't know who to be
from moment to moment
will I write this on paper
and set it to flame?
I have done so
so many times..
Perhaps I will do so
this time too

The area that I live in WAS hit with a tornado late thursday, early friday
morning.....my entire apartment was flooded and until today we haven't
been allowed to go back into them......Soooo, yes, I'm alright....it was a bit
too close for comfort to be quite honest.....


Best Wishes ash.i.AM for a calm after the storm.

How To Increase Your Inner Peace

I want to give you a tested technique for gradually and surely increasing
your inner peace. It works for you regardless of the noise and confusion
that may surround your day.

You will detach yourself as a mental participant in these noisy events.
You will observe them, be aware of them, but will not involve yourself
mentally or emotionally. Perhaps you ask, "But can this really be done?
It sounds impossible to separate myself from the constant clatter around me."
I assure you that it can be done by you.

You see, your True Self is detached from everything on the outside. It has
awareness of exterior conditions but does not get emotionally upset by them.
You have a True Self at this very moment. At the very instant of reading these
lines you are capable of mental detachment from all exterior problems.

Be a calm beholder of life. Mentally detach yourself. Stand back and quietly
observe everything that happens to you and around you. Do not resist it; merely
observe. Do not try to change or improve or destroy it, merely be aware.
See yourself as someone apart, which, in truth, you are.

You need not fear that this detachment loses your control of things. It does not
harm your daily tasks. They will go on as before. It may surprise you to find them
proceeding as before, even improved. Mental detachment is, in fact, a higher form
of control.

This kind of detachment is not retreat from reality; it is a healthy perception of it.

Stand apart and behold your life. It detaches you from trouble. You don't suffer
from that ill-tempered person; you don't get depressed over that tragic event; you
don't pay the price for that form of mankind's madness. You are free.

do you ever marvel at our existence
at the unliklihood of it all
a function of evolution's oddball turns
on a planet incredibly small

for the universe is a violent place
supernovae and black holes
what a place to raise your kids
here between the poles

of a spinning orb spinning out of control?
fueled by greed and oil and sin
makes you want to be a mole
dig a hole and climb down in

but the sun still comes up every morn
brings its light into the valley
after lighting up glorious mountaintops
that inspire us not to dally

but to forge ahead with our will to survive
and to reap an endless bounty
by taking care as stewards
of country, state and county

let this precarious place be
always sustained and sustaining
let's get smart and play the part
and before we start complaining

remember your fortune of living a life
never promised nor guaranteed
upon the very precipice of
a needle of improbability

and remember at any moment
you could easily fall off
what will you have done for mankind
looking back as you go aloft

did you answer the plea of generations to come
to conserve, preserve and protect
this home of precarious protection
this sphere of great intellect

If we're the only ones out there
and we manage to do ourselves in
the loss of knowledge and consciousness
would be the ultimate sin

so what's our plan as we survey the land
that lies beneath our veil
do we smother it with our wants and needs
or do we let Gaia prevail

mine is to teach without the "preach"
out of concern, compassion and fairness
to our little ones who have just begun
to cultivate global awareness

when rounding third and heading for reality
it isnt remembering that got us this far
its focusing on the now
crossing the plate leads to your winning
over yourself

Just awe-inspiring reads here lately!

But this speaks to me, Tropicalgrl1

"in the last breath of night"
I'll cling to this sacred space we've made
and against the swiftly dawning light
I'll weave a curtain of tranquility
with sparkling threads of firefly flight
I'll keep this bower cool and dark
sweet haven from the harsh sunlight

I'm cleaning house
kicking the clutter out of my heart
I cut away the angry weeds
that choke out joy
"I place hope
tied in red silk ribbons"
in places where love once bloomed
I prune cynicism
to a spare monument to forgotten pain
I turn the old scorched earth over
baring fertile soul
And now I wait for seeds
of laughter and love to take root.

so grateful for you,i'll try not to cry

when morning light slips through the glaze
we feel our love,it's still ablaze

for those that are somewhat slow (much like myself...hee...hee)....the only OTHER rule is that you use a line from a previous post....

and that's about all your rule readin I'm gonna do
any of the girls on your thread wanna screw?

do you have any locals I can borrow?
I've got the midwest and Canada covered
someone who could just drop by til tomorrow?
put on the crotchless French maid uniform
do my dishes
in exchange for passionate kisses
and then leave in the morning
after a goodbye blowie
goodbye blowies really turn me on
I like the ones when they roll their window down
and pleasure me with their engine running
making yummy noises and purring for me
talk about exploding
makes my d1ck hard for a week
which works out perfectly
because by then my dishes also need doing
two birds with one stoner
got any locals I can borrow, darlin?

arf

wow, very nice!

The essence of time versus age
like a book from page to page
when you first pry it open
it's fresh and new
character development and setting too

but as words are left behind
as images in your mind
you begin to get the story
caught up in the page-turning action
without too much distraction

but as the last page draws near
you begin to feel the fear
don't really want to know the ending
despite how long it took
I hope your life is a really good book

If I could cast away my armor
and lay bare my jaded heart
Strip down to weary soul
"and set it upon the mantle of innocence"
Could I rise, refreshed
and step forth naked,
blinking in a strange new light,
to walk a road I've never seen?

IF EVER

DEAR ASH I AM,
I (D’POET),
SAIL THROUGH THE ATLANTIC IN QUEST OF YOU
WITH WRITTEN SONNET.
AS MY POEMS ARE ONLY A REFLECTION OF MY HEART
AND SO WHEN YOU ARE MINE, I SHALL CROSS THE ROMANTIC PART.
MY POEMS AND WORDS TO YOU COULD BE A WASTE OF TIME,
BUT MY FEELING SHALL NEVER BE THE BODERLINE.
DEAR ANGEL,
HERE I’M, IN THE DEAD OF THE WEE HOURS
THINKING IF YOU’LL EVER BE MINE LIKE FLOATING FLOWERS.
BUT IF NOT, THEN I SHALL STILL REMAIN A TRUE AND NOBLE PAMPHLETEER
DEAR ANGEL,
MY FANTACIES COMES WITH A SMILE, WISHING WE BOTH HELD HANDS IN THE NEXT LINE.
MAYBE THIS IS JUST A DREAM,
BUT MY WORDS ARE REAL, THIS IS NO LOVE FILM.
JUST LAST NIGHT I DREAMT OF US ON A MOVING BOAT TO CHINA,
AND YOU KISSED ME WITH AN ENDLESS DESIRE.
I SMILED BACK AT YOU WITHOUT A KISS.
FOR I KNEW IT WAS JUST A DREAM.
YOU ARE THE BOOK IN MY LIBRARY, WHEREON I SEARCH FOR.
AND IF EVER BY HAPPENSTANCE WE FIND EACHOTHER TOGETHER AS ONE, IT’S BEAUTIFUL.
IF NOT, IT CAN’T BE HELPED. (AS YOU ARE THE MISTRESS OF YOUR MIND).
I DREAM TO WAKE UP BY YOUE SIDE.‘HOW I WISH’.

A DENOUNCED LETTER TO HIV AIDS

It first came as a first aid box
Relieving pains out of the creatures of the earth.
But now, it has become the opposite,
Dropping the first and last words to stand-alone.
Becoming a more brutal and faster way of slaying my people
I wake up to fight this indomitable malady, but become unseen.
Spreading silently and slowly with a soundless pass.
Before you are aware of its silent steps,
It is deep inside you.
The virus, killing innocent souls that should last longer.
I write to fight this indomitable virus,
Yet stinging before the greatest storm
Great scientist fight for the slightest cure,
As the rainy days long for a dry season.
Schooling my internal hunch for a reason.
Giving me the strength to war against the virus.
But in the heart of my people, I see nothing but fear.
Yet it is foolish to fear that one thing, in this great world.
It is not a question of wisdom and foolishness, it is just fear.
Until the end of days, my battling weapon shall continue to war against HIV aids.

(Thank you very much Ash...I just write poetry for the satisfaction it gives me,
and to record my inner-most feelings. Greetings to you all)


A LOST CHILDHOOD

Ashes of a childhood
Still flows within my heart everyday.
In the solitude of the night embrace
Closely I whisper with pain.
Whispering to myself, once and again
Believing the strength of today,
Is a sign for a better tomorrow
My thoughts comes from the golden wings, that mend a broken heart
I wake up wanting to know I’m on the right part,
But the cry of a child is forever.
Until the heavens is here,
So will my heart have no fear.
For the end of days is near
My dreadful pouring tears is interminable like the red river,
Always wet without a sign of coming to a freeze.
I see my future, but feel my past
I hold the tears, but it comes at last.
I try to smile, but it comes so fast,
Hoping to defy the agony of a lost childhood.
Only with the heart of a saint,
Shall I over come my past.

D POET.

HEART OF A SAINT

Impaired words from the heart of a saint,
Unbreakable like the shadows of a paint
Pleasures that evaporate to the sky
Programmed words that are bound to die.
Promises that make them cry
But the heart of a saint shall never lie
Their broken promises, becomes his flawless words.
Burning out the wasted scents of the false prophets
Like the angel on the seventh step
Giving revelations to the weak
Revealing their internal errors, as they squeak out of their formidable terrors.
Closely he whispers to you,
With determination
Like the sweet birds from the honey tree.
Buried saints, deep beneath the earth,
Unseen like every Ghustle death.
But to be awaken by the silence of the world.
From this silence I see failure,
From this failure I see weakness,
From this weakness I see knowledge,
From this knowledge, I see great saints.
Only from these saints shall we find our saints.

REVOLUTION POEM
Arise my people
For the day of attainment has come.
Behold a new dawn, avec a new world
My black mother woke up with a beautiful s on her face.
For her guffaws have restored back,
My lost hope and strength unto my veins.
As my sleepless night, has become a restful snooze.
My African cry has been taken by the unseen breeze of AER.
Tomorrow’s dream is no more,
But my revolution poem is come.
I suddenly find myself on the greatest mountain,
Viewing the world from a clear view.
Arise my people,
For the great victory is here.
My heart knows no fear,
For the end of days is near.
I was once drenched away by the unending pieces of my despaired fantasies.
But my black mother’s laurels have brought me eternal day repose.
Arise my people,
For the day of attainment is come.
Do not be troubled about your weary past
As the longing dawn has come at last.

I'm afraid my God is old and frail
hearing and vision beginning to fail
unable to see the hurt in the world
or hear all the cries and wails

Can my god not hear the prayers
or is it that he no longer cares
that the swords in our little world
far outnumber all the plowshares

Can we blame him for losing faith
in what's become of the human race
to accept that he can't see or hear
could be our saving grace

I guess what I am saying
is why do we keep on praying
to a God who no longer listens
tired, feeble and graying

Is he powerful and all-giving
but uncaring for the living
or are we the deaf and the blind
how can we be so forgiving

of a God who seems to ignore
suffering, hatred and war
to those who are more devout
is it because fate has given you more

if we are looking for absolution
let's start a revolution
maybe we are all we got
and God is not the solution

so believe in Jesus' teachings
but be wary of all the preaching
for the existence of a benevolent God
may be a bit over-reaching

Don't hide your head in the sand
thinking your life is just grand
there are many lives that are not
for them you must make a stand

We can have a strong moral code
without believing it was bestowed
by a God looking down from above
nothing borrowed nothing owed

but we do owe it to each other
to live as sister and brother
and worship the life you live
bestowed by father and mother

A song felt within
as questions dance in the soul
searching for His touch
for the truth that makes free and whole.

Stay on the path.
Trusting answers to arise
For with open ears and a seeking heart...
Light will shine in your spirit and eyes.

Listen to the music....
question every beat.
for honest doubt leads to the truest faith.
the rhythm of joy soon taking your feet.

Always know my Princess
that you were conceived in Love
and the sun will never set
on a day in which you're not Loved
Know that I am forever thankful
to be blessed to be your father
your conception is God's
validation of my life
Know that I was there
waiting anxiously to hold you
as you took your first breath
and know
that I will always be there for you forever
until my last breath
I will always fall short
of the perfection you deserve in a father
only my love will shine through
in the darkness of disappointments I have caused
I ask you not to look up to me, my daughter
but look within me
for there you will find the one thing I am sure of
the one truly unblemished thing in my life
A Fathers Love
