there
is
a
difference


Without past experience
we cannot handle the future.
Anything else is mere pretence
of love and life we did endure
No pain and suffering
was without its blessing.
Our past in true essence
Of that we can be sure
has made us
who we are
TODAY
and it is in
TODAY
we make sense
and Shine ...

Arohanui TG ... perhaps something
"cathartic expression of authentic self"
of the Love genre


The intimate feeling
of your touch
your body
against mine
embraced
and protected.
Words are spared
but are not needed
because
the message
is felt
mutually.
In your absence
my mind is still
on our time spent
but also
my mind
is on tomorrow
hoping it will be
as the yesterday
we were together
because
I love you.

authentic emotion

something sad ...

Heartaches
… come to us all
Mistakes
… how we did fall
Fears
… feeling undone
Years
… being alone
Tears
… thru a frown
Love
… let us down
Sunshine
… follows rain
Rainbows
… take away pain
Courage
… to stand tall
Strength
… breaks down wall
…….now
………..today
………………start
BUILDING BRIDGES

Friendship
…..... is building bridges and keeping them in constant repair.


something happy

TOUCH MY HEART

Your gentle caress
Soft upon my skin

Your paralyzing eyes
Drawing me in

Your tantalizing smile
Arouses my passion

Your fears
Touch my compassion

Your tears
Touch my soul

Your love
Makes me whole

Your soulful gaze
Speaks a new start

Your sweet words
Touch my heart

just one more TG since your tomorrow is our yesterday

Win or Lose

Pleasure or pain
Wherein the gain
Pleasure has a cost
Pain has nothing lost
This day I must choose
Will it be win or lose
Freedom of choice
One lonely voice
Look once look twice
How to feed the vice
Which way will cards fall
The winner takes it all
Fairweather friends abound
but will they still be around
when I have nothing left
to lose, and am bereft
of love and life and soul
abandoned like a troll
post voted off the thread
only pain is in my head.

So tell me did you
ever find the real heat
you seek? That real heart?
is it whizzing by you?



Arrogance of Egotistical Soul

Do not tell me what I feel
My feelings are mine to own
Protecting yourself sure and true
This is not about me it is about you
In words we converse
And share and are known
In light of night
The talk is shown
It shows me the parts I saw in you
Your words tell me
The words guiding the essence of you
And still you say
To me you are unknown
For we have not glanced
Each others way
And seen in a second
All there is to say
In a glance you profess to see
All you know is all of me
So it is true I do not know you friend
Your words hold no meaning
Trivial, frugal and without an end
Stay locked in your world
Your vision is all you see
Base lifetimes on fleeting glances
And seek and wonder why.

Your firstborn and although so many
many miles of ocean are between us
my agape bloom is like yesterday
like the children of me and you
whispering in the dark.



Eyes Of A Child

Through the eyes of a child
the world is full of wonder
Through the eyes of a child
it’s sunshine, rain or thunder
Through the eyes of a child
life’s just an endless game
Through the eyes of a child
there’s only adults to blame
Through the eyes of a child
it’s schooldays and fun days
Through the eyes of a child
it’s fascinating always
Through the eyes of a child
it’s beach, buckets and sand
Through the eyes of a child
life’s so easy to understand
now what about us – you and me
where’s our eyes of a child
we live life so fast, never free
to take those eyes of a child
and quantify life to really see
letting imagination run wild
so take a break today, just be
lost in the eyes of a child …

As women we fell in love with others but
always came back to the shelter of our
friendship so often sharing tears and laughter
cause now we were not so simple and
no longer so innocent.


CHOOSE A LIFE OF LOVE

To love is to step out with light,
like a candle in the night,
shining our path to morning sun
finding love lives in everyone.

I know it’s not easy sometimes
dancing to music without rhymes
Out with those good time guys
whose truths soon turn into lies.

The ones that promise you forever
and lead you down paths to never
be the same after wedding bells
when their faithlessness is living hell

Yet one may choose a life of love,
trusting in angels and the stars above
as love unveils the beauty of all things.
To be an angel, one need not have wings.

In giving love there is an equal grace.
No need to seek the aura in the face,
each love you feel, unstained and free,
redeems and a stronger woman you will be.

Morning tastes of truth

Waking to the sound of your own listening
fear slips a knife between your dreams
a hazy headed stranger has his hands full
he wants to paint the silence with your screams

light strains to lend a learned perspective
you're determined to deny the very day
faux falling in and out of up and down
the twisting of the turn around to pay

betrayal beats down your best defenses
the will to will has now been fully armed
hating has withheld its last 8 minutes
and i still want to kill my snooze alarm

In the Heat of the Hurry

The mystery of mingling we make sharing of our love
the ghosts of all we've given dance both under and above
Motion molds a memory ,taste and touch a push and shove
our naked souls unguarded, all hands without a glove

til the wine that we were drinking leaves its mark and us behind
to gaze upon our lover , were we drunk or were we blind?
In a cycle of sad certainty, we shrink smaller in our mind
Seeking ways to justify the time, lonely is the best that we can find

Daylight had come

Velvet darkness hovered,
Dusk slowly creeping
Tiptoed over quiet earth
Found Daylight sleeping
Naked but for her
Gown of dewy mist

Night time lightly brushed
Her shoulder
Then gently raised her halo
Of stars,
Chanced being bolder,
Kissed her

She stirred, restless dreaming
Broken by his touch
Soft breeze grew stronger
Slumbering senses much
Aroused fever
Pitch

Now sleepless, daytime
Tossed, then turned
Wind blew stronger
Feelings churned
Night time withdrew
Waiting

Moving silent before
Petal pink Dawn arose
To see her mistress
Beyond repose,
He glided swiftly

Daylight felt his tender touch
Her body burning,
Moved towards him
Aching with familiar yearning
Drowned in lust

His expert hands,
Lingered gently until
Too much to bear, she
Longed for her fill
Of him

He felt her rising tide
Of passion overflowing
He plunged wildly into her
Secret, soft glowing
Core

Daylight had come

make it thru the middle

does sleep steal the meaning of every moment without pain
can the life i have be simplified to the oxygen i gain
am i robbed of all i am, just to make them understand
while everything that touches me is like diamond polished sand

will i ever have the time or chance to once again be me
to have the choice to be alone or retain some dignity
all the love inside and out has given me a key
but how can the war be over if im still a casualty.....

Where do I send the bill for my smoking ,molten monitor?
you walk the line well between beauty and the beast that lives
for her and drives us to our peak

A world of mistakes fill our lives...
Enigmas slither through dreams of dispair...
Memories blistered of blue tranquils...
Desperados morning dew...
Nature reaps of dividends...
Morgues repetitive of lifes end...
Can we suppress the knowing fault...
Secret samples of hope we grasp...
Mortified of futures passed...
Lingering leaves of lust devine...
Break the habit inner'twined...
Bubbles of love become us...
Chance abides us...

It has been ask of...in the past
And some believe it does not last
A shimmering dream...him holding the door
Amidst smoke and mirrors I do implore
Lay down that cloak...cross over the puddle
Thrice confused through all the muddle
Yes we do...I say loud and clear
Fear not my lady a gentleman's near
Tis not all lost what you cannot find
Its deep in the heart, soul and the mind
Believe me it's true...we do exist
Not just fairy tales and movie flicks
We are all around you...it is fair to say
Just make a wish for it to be your day

The Pool Of Plenty

While Fishing in the Pool of Plenty
Got One Nibble "Oh"...Maybe Twenty
A Bite...the Snag...an Hour of Play
On the Fly?...Pray Tell..."My Lucky Day"
Upstream a Swim to Schools of Charm
Of Lessons Learned While on the Farm
Line Wraps Round Rocks in Pools of Know
Lie Down in Deep Dark Waters Flow
Fisher Slips then Struggles to Set Line Free
As Rainbow Beauty Watched Below with Glee
Rod Bends to Breaking "Snap" the Sound
Damn!!! Got Away..."Stomps" on the Ground
As Shadows Fall...and Hungry Waters Churn
Daydreaming Fisher Ponders His Next Turn
Remember This as You Cast That Line
Be Kind to Others Truly Treat them Fine
It Takes Practice...Practice to be Sublime
Just Respect each One as You Would a Bentley
Be sure to Bait them with a Smile so Gently
No Worries My Friend Their Everywhere
All Swimming Aimlessly Without Despair
So Sit Back Relax and Search Intently
Theres Nothing to Lose in the Pool of Plenty

Desire

If what we want drives us ,
why would anyone else want to go?
If what we need is our master
than every urge is all we know
if mind is wasted as body's slave
what could be dies, before the grave
with only scars and sadness left to show

I posted this on another thread but I think it fits better here..


The Joke is On Us

Sell me love as sugar, then laugh because its sweet
dissect a soul within your sight , then find its incomplete
anatomy is never more than a name for every piece
while life paints the gilded glance , the energy release
listen to the ones who sell, the more for you to buy
shallow isn't sad at never feeling past a sigh

a heart within a window with a price upon its face
is the choice we choose to trade for all the loneliness we taste
like a flavor fleeing faster than the memory can replace
love's the liquor we are promised in the drink of hurried haste
While the sadness of the moment finds a tear you can't erase

the void of less than needed makes a fist inside your heart
til the days of hope's amnesia gives you just the strength to start
believing in another like a drug that cannot fail
will we ever get onboard before the ship sets sail?
can we slow the speed of caring to a pace that we can know
or just leap into the wind .. and let it blow.

Playing Cars

With an armload of hotwheels and a smile like a clown
Runs down to the alleyway and drops to the ground

Little Donny spreads them around over the ditch
A small stretch of land he named Govenors Itch

Can I play said the girl with her feet in the water
As distant calls came from parents to daughter

These are yours...these are mine he said with a thunder
To the girl next door from the land of downunder

I will share this land here with one thing in mind
Never pillage or plunder and be fair to mankind

Whats your name my friend he said with a smile
My name is Tawny twirling her hair all the while

Donny he said handing her his favorite red truck
Pleasure to meet you please dont get this one stuck

Together they cut through the grass scraping dirt
Building roads out of mud Donny wipes on his shirt

Our names rhyme said Tawny speaking with bliss
Yes...I know with approval Donny gives her a kiss

Lets build our house here on the top of the hill
I want a garden and pets and horses better still

They plotted and planned it all to perfection
Looking into the water at each others reflection

We should play every day Donny said with a stich
Tawny replied...yes every day right here in this ditch

As the distant calls from our parents for dinner
Kiss me goodbye Tawny said with a glimmer

We met everyday spent with hours of laughter
Sharing moments in time with love ever after

Twenty years have pass by on the edge of that ditch
Still two lovers playing cars at the Govenors Itch

Nice one E:-)

In the midst of all
our doubts and fears,
troubles and uncertainties,
hurts and silent tears,
it is nice to come together
sometimes and find
the other person
has the same difficulty
expressing their feelings,
desires and needs,
and to know
that like sunshine
through a cloudy sky,
true love
must sometime
burst thru.

something transitional i used to call it a fire in every hole ..but so many didnt know i meant the eyes and ears... or did I ..it has been a while

a first hello is closer than a last goodbye

Small breezes dart their way across
your skin and torment trembles,
as you were only thinking of the time.
When touch would more than mask the loss
of the joy it first resembles.
Hiding history, a treason
for both victims of the crime.

the innocence of novelty,
a fraud of ill delusion
like dogs and cars we chase the new
and drown in our confusion

A shiver moves you up and out
distraction from the hour.
While wars are won and lost from within
Passion flees from fear and doubt
no prior pain, its power.
The more that we create
the more we win

half-step slow

playing with the way we work around the other side
of seeing as we go instead of looking backwards and wondering
what the f*ck , that wasn't me with my hands full of your stuff
but it might have been if you had looked last week.
nothing is ever missing out on being right in front of you
sometimes your front moves
sometimes it should and doesn't

no one has the answer to your question
stop asking me or i will have to confuse you all over again
something about the way you look out on the world
keeps me from shooting you , but that was last week
and you are all out of stuff...
