First Love

Your lips speak soft sweetness
Your touch a cool caress
I am lost in your magic
My heart beats within your chest.

..I think of you each morning
And dream of you each night
I think of your arms being around me
And cannot express my delight.

Never have I fallen
But I am quickly on my way
You hold a heart in your hands
That has never before been given away.

Finding Love

I wanted a mansion once… that is until I met you,
Now the only place I want to live is inside your heart
I once desired diamonds… until I met you,
Now the only sparkle I need comes from within
I used to crave the finest clothing… until I met you,
Now I want not a single thread to separate our bodies
I once coveted a fancy car… until I met you,
Now I want nothing that would put miles between us
I once prayed for money… until I met you,
Now I want none of the things money can buy
I once yearned for a sense of security… until I met you,
Now my only security comes is knowing you are near
I once dreamt of a prestigious job… until I met you,
Now I find my success in knowing that you are happy
I once asked for the world on a silver platter… until I met you,
Now you are my world and I want for nothing but your touch
Loving you has been my teacher; you taught me not to want
Being with you has been my discovery; you are all that I need
Finding you has been my salvation, I now understand grateful
But perhaps most importantly …
Your love in return has been my everything.

A Dream Within A Dream

635905677386074784-1618317641_dreamTake this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow–
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand–
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep–while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

21 days to freedom

Two numbers that can change a memory.
A human brain needs time to change,
like the cycle of the moon
or sand falling through glass,
we require twenty-one days.

A cigarette burns like a beacon,
it removes doubt and muddles your mind,
it strokes your inner thoughts and whispers,
Oh so gently into your ear,
this life is just a little drag.

That shot glass fits finger and thumb,
like picking up a part that has fallen off.
It’s sweet innards carry us away from here,
to a reality that needs no coping,
a place where we are equal
even in our daughters eyes.

A change of attitude turns slowly,
the meek bloom from extinguished self doubt,
a feel of real worth bathes their fears
washing them away forever,
a new man, a new start.

Twenty-one days later
the cigarette is cancer on a stick
the shot glass is a bullet in your hand,
A brain can be reprogrammed.
