It seems like
this world
has no time for love
everybody's always
in a hurry so they push and shove
there's no regard
for one's own brother
they have no love to give to one another

wherever i go
there are angry faces
no warm tender embraces
just hate
now everybody's irate
there's a flew going a round
a new fever in town
and that is to destroy
people acting coy
as if nothing's wrong
well what's going on?
nobody want's to get involve
nobody wants to evolve

they want to remain the same
in their dormant state of mind
with no sense of time
while mischief and trickery is at work by day
all the lifeless souls want to do is play




 
 
Thank you for stopping by. This poem was my very
first written worke ever published. It was published in 2006. If you have never
read this before I employ you to please do so and leave comments. This was the happiest day in my writing career and then I decided to put my writing on the back burner for a while. But one day, i woke up and said to myself i want to share my talent with this world and indeed i will do that again.

BEAUTIFUL  PASSIONS
SO
LONG I HAVE SUPPRESSED

ALONG THE
BUSSOMS OF MY BREAST.

LOVE HAS
NEVER TASTED SO SWEET LIKE THE BATTLES OF DEFEAT.



ALTHOUGH THE STORMS ARE STRETUROUS THAN EVER I WILL
CONTINUE TO LOVE THEE FOREVER SOME MAY THINK THIS FEELING IS A CURSE BUT MY
LOVE, THEE I NURSE.


MY HEART HAS NEVER FELT SO FREE SINCE THAT DAY YOU CAME
TO
ME
EVEN IN DEATH YOU STILL REMAIN IN THE
CHAMBERS OF MY DOMAIN.
MY HEART BEATS FOR YOU EACH PASSING DAY
REMINDING ME OF WHEN YOU WENT 
AWAY


BEAUTIFUL PASSIONS SO LONG I HAVE
SUPPRESSED ALONG THE BUSSOMS OF MY BREAST 
OUR PASSIONS IGNITE
FAR GREATER THAN THE HEAT LIKE MANY BATTLES FOUGHT IN THE
STREET.
YOU ARE DEVOTED TO YOUR LAND AS I DREAM OF HAVING YOUR
HAND


OH! HOW YOU HAVE CHANGED
MY LIFE, I'D BE HONORED TO BE YOUR
WIFE.
MY HEART HAS NEVER
FELT SO FREE SINCE THE DAY YOU CAME TO ME EVEN IN DEATH YOU STILL REMAIN IN THE
CHAMBERS OF MY DOMAIN.


BEAUTIFUL PASSIONS SO LONG I HAVE SUPPRESSED
ALONG
THE BUSSOMS OF MY BREAST 

MY BRAVE WARRIOR, YOUR WOUNDS AREN'T AS DEEP
AS MINE

FOR I HAVE WITHSTOOD THE HANDS OF
TIME.

WATCHING, WAITING FOR YOUR RETURN. EVERY MOMENT THERE
WAS CONCERN. HOW CAN I EVER THINK OF FINDING ANOTHER WHEN I HAVE LOST MY ONE
TRUE LOVER. I CAN NO LONGER SEE HIS FACE 
OR  FEEL HIS WARM TENDER EMBRACE.MY LOVE, MY
HOPE, MY HEART, MY GLORY
THERE IS NO END TO OUR LOVE
STORY


BEAUTIFUL PASSIONS SO LONG I HAVE
SUPPRESSED ALONG THE BUSSOMS OF MY BREAST  
MY HEART HAS NEVER
FELT SO FREE
SINCE THE DAY YOU CAME TO ME 
EVEN IN DEATH YOU STILL REMAIN
IN THE
CHAMBERS OF MY HEARTS DOMAIN



 
 
 

True Love is but a dream

Floating in a narrow stream

Some will never feel its touch

Some will say it’s too much

To even bare

The passions that are there

But isn’t love about going the long mile?

Taking all in with for a little while?

For nothing last forever

When two hearts do sever

For death breaks our hearts

And scatter our parts

To devour our soul

Consuming us whole

The vessel we once had turn to ash

Before our eyes in a flash

As if we weren’t even here

Living breathing in this atmosphere

 
 


He held me in his embrace

And I beheld his beauty and grace

His opulent allure

I wanted more

But that was so long ago

In my mind I go to and fro

Thinking about what could have been and woe

How regrettable that I let him go

I just want to cry

Why did I say goodbye

To what might have been

I committed the ultimate sin

To have loved and lost

And my heart paid the ultimate cost

I am so alone

And have to suffer this on my own

He was like Heaven sent                                                                    

To the grave he went

The graveyard of my mind

But my memories of him are not far behind

They’re still in the inner chamber of my heart

Never will he nor they ever depart

 
 


As much as I would want that everyone come to together and become united under God, I know that this is impossible. Just like good and evil or love and hate will never ever get along.  Togetherness and peace of the world is a far off dream. There are people out there that refuse to be unified and see each other as mortal enemies for no apparent reason and if they have an adequate reason it is most likely trivial and nonsensical. Yes I know there are divisions between ones ethnical, sexual, religious and political affiliation but it doesn’t have to be. But of course there are people who love to stir the pot and cause trouble. There are divisions everywhere. We are divided by sea, language, culture, opinions, age, experience, intelligence, beauty, ugliness, and jobs. Yes, oh yes we are divided and there’s no way around it. I don’t want to believe it but it’s true.  We are divided in our families our social groups and friends. We are divided by our pain, our grief, our feelings, our marital and single status. We are divide by our food choices our music. Even though we are divided we still share a common bond – we all share life.
