Sometime we just need to breathe,
Step back, a simple life to achieve.
As in those thoughts find serenity,
Planting accord, back in this crazy!

Hope granted, and not be assigned,
Stillness in the soul and calm mind.
Is to not judge on what we shall see,
One day it could be you with a plea!

To hold this unprompted goodness
Becomes easy, and so spontaneous!
Engaging smile in passing is natural,
Dialogues with sincerity and beguile.

Once more seeing in another’s eyes,
And without envoy, nor any despise.
Given humankind hope, a new birth,
Planting accord, in leys of this earth.

With you by my side, I shall walk true,
Put empathy into everything I pursue,
With you by my side, I shall appreciate,
Make life so easy, not living to hesitate.

With you by my side, I shall touch love,
Munificence of the soul does behoove,
With you by my side, I shall erase hate,
Absorbing me into good, restoring fate.

With you by my side, I shall live taught,
Right and wrong, if humanity is sought,
With you by my side, I will exist strong,
And help to carry the burden, life’s long.

With you by my side, I shall award a day,
That I express compassion with all I say,
With you by my side, I shall be content,
To understand life, living without dissent.

Life is not a butterfly pinned unto a board,
but it is to watch it fly, spreading its wings
soaring those skies freely, abandoning
all concern, as it flutters about one’s heart,
its wings whispering those lexes of humanity.
It is only now, when the heart and mind
come together, cutting those chains,
forsaking these shackles that hold us down,
Releasing our spirits to soar those skies also,
as we to can feel the un distilled wind under our wings
and the words of amenity shining upon our souls,
as there is, but one life to live!

Clutching love in those two hands,
Is a must, we do truly understand,
As an untrue amity heart will obey,
Embracing it, or to just walk away.

It can become sour, hard to digest,
Words one hopes never to confess,
Not all love is true no matter what,
Illusive dreams, that love to rebut.

A whisper billowing with a meaning,
To come from the soul not implying,
Mind is elated for the things to come,
Hope resolution will never succumb.

Being in love caressing each second,
Timidly bold, past lessons not silent,
Upon your mind there’s this curious,
Eyes are open, heart being cautious.

And internally, one wishes to engage,
Is that enthused soul with all to wage,
Know that love is there, only to deny,
Because, once broken one’s twice shy!

Eyes blinded by the hearts endeavor,
A shackled spirit that love will never
Last until the lexes stop, it’s on peril,
No hero sent, surely a devil’s herald.

Simply, to live is becoming that fight,
When words cuff with all their might,
In those darkest notions we’ll burrow,
Aversion is planted a love shall follow.

Now to point your face into that wind,
However, is the realization shall begin,
It is now, that one’s love is on the line,
Thus inspiration is over, not all is fine!

But the silence, it’s a disturbing noise,
The distressed soul surely will reprise,
Muses of that lost love it is a reminder,
A one-sided love, befalls as a stranger.

Dance while the sky is on fire,
As hope and dreams conspire,
Climb a hill to that other side,
Cause it was there, not pride.

Held hands with a devil itself,
Look upon those eyes, myself,
Bless me lord, was hell to pay,
Survived to live one more day.

Thieves of the night’s breath,
Lust a sin, must not dwelleth,
Upon such anguish you’ll find,
As it will paralyze one’s mind.

A spirit lost the misled covet,
As skeletons hide in a closet,
Skies on fire with past desire,
As lust and fantasy conspire!
