“New to me, New to you”


I will make our story true

Because in some places its a lie

 Trying in the eyes of others. 

Make them see what could have been 

what should have been true

How we work together. 

How i have been hurting you

How we can surpass the end of time. 

Faithful and true; what are the parts of me, that are you….

As snow birds and travelers move about 

allochthonous… misplaced but leaving a mark. 

A plain of discovery. 

Parts that are hurting yet growing me

Is it ok to partake of selective fruit

What blends of pudendal juice

Wanting to be dissected 

Small circle questions 

could he ask

How dare that enter the mind

The world is too big too many choices 

To fill and empty 1 glass

Knowing my mind

Reviewing our time

the past was the last

Open mind open time

Plural or singular you are always mine

I am always yours

My more will come with time

Happy… Forever…


When I first sat down to write this I thought “Oh this is going to be easy!” All I have to do is tell my thoughts to the world and wish them a happy life.

Then it hit me “When you say it like that..” It seems easy enough, but to actually pick and assemble the best set of words and thoughts to say all of that in like 3 minutes. That’s when it gets a little bit harder. How could I… I mean really grasp what I wanted to say.

Praise, Acknowledgement, Family, Commitment and Love in a couple of paragraphs. How could I assure everyone who reads this; to let them know that through the trials, hard times and just life in general; that marriage is a good decision for both parties, that this is how it is meant to be. That “Love can conquer all”  it just needs respect & reverence to keep it in line. To be able to tell newlyweds that this is a symbol, a contract, unyielding and completely binding. A true test of forever.

Some people could never share and discuss their lives with friends like they can family. Now when I say family, I mean there’s no way you can deny this person of being who they are to you. When you say loyal, supportive, stubborn, a down right pain in the ….,  someone to never skimp words and always tell you when your wrong or right, stand by you in a fight. To always be there even if you can’t see them, just like the stars at night. You can always depend on them to be who he or she is and to follow through.

I know sometimes; more importantly in today’s world, that this can turn into a fling or some disillusionment.

Teams that take these steps are centuries of mankind trying to come together for a definitive purpose. To finally see them coming together to make a statement in front of their family and friends. Where they make history with a rite of passage and celebration. To hold each other so dear and close. This was always down the road, and everyone here knows that this is not the easy way out. So as these and many more of the memories to come and linger on for years I wish the world a strong and healthy life.

Marriage is dedication, the battling of life together. It is poetry. It is love songs. The union can be dreams. Reality and fantasy… Bonded, together… In my opinion…

Happy… Forever…

As Always…

Stay Positive!

“Haven’t Succeeded”


I can’t talk to you…

.

Not for not wanting to talk to you 
Not for wanting to ignore you
It’s because of how much I have disappointed you.

.
What can I say that would make up…
the heartache 
The headache… 
I caused. 

.

I believe 
I deserve your love 
I haven’t shown you 
I deserve it.  

.
what can I do to show you …
I know how to love you right
I’m sorry…

.

I know this has not been easy. 
The stress. 
The ups and downs. 
Worrying about the bills 
Worrying about this life
worrying about me. 
.

asking me to spend time with you 
I haven’t.
Why 
I really don’t know why. 
I try and plan. Then something always comes up. 

.

Am I making excuses 
but this life…
it just is…
.
you deserve more than something small. 
can’t even give you that. 
Some grand gesture 
You don’t …
We don’t need all of that
I just want it to be sincere
Truth
Simple

I thought I could be the man you needed. 

It’s all in that last line…
Even though its just that…

I haven’t succeeded…

“We Should Be”


(Photo found using Google Image Search)

I`m confused; misplaced the love wrapped up in you
Can it be used
Even salvaged

Everything can be going right then we make a left
And we wrong
Possibly summed up in a sappy, silly love song
Replaced by everyday existence
Trial, tribulation.
Trouble and a dollar

I know you hurt
I see you cry
Even tho no tears are shed
I see it in your eyes
Your scared and its dark outside
The wheels will turn to get us out of there.
Out of here…

Despair…

Get us somewhere, someplace
We should be.
A tad more vibrant
A drop more bold
Someplace where our union can focus and hold
Become an affirmation for others to see example of real

And fantasy…

*****

This is a re-write of another poem which I re-visited. So its new & improved.

Every couple has their disagreements. Even in adverse times we all should have the goal to be better in everything we do or are a part of. We all want and deserve the best.

As Always…

Stay Positive!
