The Eyes Have It

It was your eyes that took me aback. They lit up the entire room. And I felt the slightest recognition as ours connected.  I knew instantly I wanted to look into those eyes for eternity.  Your eyes rose pedals of the heart.   I wanted to look into your eyes so that I could whisper into your spirit, possess the soul of those eyes.  Those eyes were the movie trailer. I instantly wanted the box set with demo versions, and the history of those eyes.  I want the making of those eyes.  I want to spend the rest of my life searching for answers in those eyes, to unasked questions.  I want to spend all night talking about the Beatles, the Doors, and Elvis and watch those eyes sparkle like glitter.  I want those eyes to be easy as they are right now.  I want those eyes to feel no fear ever.   I want those eyes to always be free, feel free, and know they will never be judged by me.  I want to feel the flow of love from that emits from those eyes, always.  I want to see the dreams of those eyes.  And make those eyes dream about me. Because those eyes are a dream come true.  But most of all I want to stare into those eyes and feel like I do in this moment, immaculate.

Countdown

You are the only love I have ever found. 

If only you were still around. 

My angels surround, 

Me in this town. 

And I am Heaven bound. 

I see you in the satin gown. 

And my memories, they do hound. 

For I hear the sound, 

I feel the pound. 

Of the wave by the sea aground. 

The feeling I have of being down, 

Makes me frown. 

Is love a noun? 

Does it wear a thorny crown? 

Oh, why must I feel like a clown? 

I know you will love me again when I am renown. 

But will it be too late for our showdown? 

Because this world is on a countdown.

Abstract Love

You said I needed culture.

I said I don’t want it growing on me.

A teacher and artist,

The smartest person I’d ever met.

Yes, much older than me.

We met playing risk.

And drank all night.

I was instantly caught up in you.

We’d make love for days.

You introduced me to a different life.

The ballet, the symphony, Broadway plays.

A whirlwind romance.

You said we would never last.

Because what we had was an abstract love.

For LPC

RIP

I Remember

I remember when I first saw your face.
I’ll never forget the moment we first kissed.
You didn’t like me at first.
You said I’d never change.
You didn’t like my smoking.
So I quit, one of many changes.
I remember where we first made love. Do you?

I asked you to marry.
Boy, were you warry.
We got married in Tennessee.
I thought it was my lucky day.

Of course, things went bad.
And I’ll take the blame.
So I guess I didn’t change.
Because now you’re gone.
You left and never came back.
And I’m all alone.
I didn’t deserve your love.
And you sure as hell didn’t deserve me.

A Conversation with God

What if I told you I had a conversation with God?
Would you believe? This is what happened.

I was lying in bed and mind was quiet. I began to pray.
Suddenly, a question entered my mind.

Have you ever stopped and listened for the answers after you
pray? I said, no I haven’t. Well, they will come if you listen.

At that moment I felt a change. My prayer continued.
What should I do next I asked?

That is your choice, but remember you exactly where you are
supposed to be.

I get that, I answered, but I still have worries and fears.
And you have faith and the Spirit is within you. You were
created in My image. You have enough and most of all you are
enough.

I’m enough? I want to be more. You are more than enough.
Try to enjoy what you been given. Enjoy the moment, the day,
the beauty I’ve created, the beauty of life. Remember this–
I’m everywhere in everything. I’m in you so go deep within
yourself, and love and spread that love! Strive to be–Me!
For I am love and you are too.
