Dream Shifter

I am calm,

At rest,

Sitting on a park bench,

Enjoying my peacefulness,

When suddenly I feel the Earth has shifted,

I sense her,

Beyond the crowd,

And sure enough,

I see her walking in from the parking lot,

Her dark form fitting clothes,

Her quick gate.

She glides across the concrete.

My insides scream with excitement

As I take in her splendor and beauty,

She is an orchid among roses and daisies,

But does she even know?

Perhaps this is simply a muse in my mind.

A day dream.

Because I'm not even sure she really exists.

For how else can you explain,

Someone you could have only come up with,

In your imagination,

And then breathed them into reality.

I Dream a Dream

I dream of a world with no drugs,

No need for woes of life,

To be numbed by alcohol and partying.

I dream of a world

Where a child never says I love you,

To a parent

Only to never hear the words reflected.

I dream of a world

Where violence and physical abuse

Do not exist.

How I wish I could save,

Each innocent and little child,

Protect them from the damage,

They experience.

How I dream but only a dream,

I simply cannot let go of.

Faith and Prayer

True faith is believing good things will happen but requires you do the things that are within your control.

But there are many things beyond your control...

For these things faith becomes a simple act of prayer.

It is the moment you see all other people's sickness with clarity that you wish to be alone.

For this moment, you simply have prayer.

It is the moment you see your own sickness with clarity that you realize you need others.

For this also, you simply have prayer.

Quality Time

Sitting on the grass,

In front of our house,

Talking for hours on end,

Your low cut shirt,

And your youthful feminine beauty on display.

Running around with friends,

In the middle of night,

Lying down in the middle of a field,

Gazing at the beautiful night sky.

Walking around the neighborhood,

Stopping to give you a small kiss,

Returning home,

Or having to part from you.

Driving down the road,

Wind in our hair,

Music blasting,

Or playing some sweet symphony.

Adventures in snowboarding,

Coupled with private rides,

Making out while resting,

Ending the day with a warm snuggly fire.

Playing games,

Laughing and enjoying each other's company,

Lying on the couch,

One under the other,

Holding hands.


And lust taking control,

Laying you down on the cold hard concrete,

In a public place,

Anticipating getting caught,

As we bang out our body's passions.

Slow dancing,

Melting in your arms,

As we hold each other closely,

Romantic feelings,

Caressed by love songs after dark.

Finding a place to park,

Far away from the crowds,

Where we discover each other,

Windows fogged.

Lying in bed,

Stripping off your tight jeans,

Interrupted by life,

And having to run.

Making tender love under the stars,

The calm air,

Soothing tempered skin,

Peacefully embracing.

Watching movies side by side,

Action, drama or comedy,

Emoting in tune with you,

Sharing an experience.

Skinny dipping,

Where people might see,

Intimate touches,

And awkward naked moments.

Doing nothing,

Absolutely nothing,

Just leaning on a wall,

Wishing to hold you forever.

Staying at home,

Enjoying a relaxing afternoon,

Cooking a humble meal,

Breaking bread.

These are the moments,

These little moments,

That make all the difference.

The Earth and all its beauty,

The endless landscapes,

The breath taking sunsets,

The serenity of waves crashing against the shore,

The starry sky which twinkles among the shooting stars,

Reflects such magnificent creation.

Like the oils and paint,

Sprayed across the canvas.

Reflect the artist.


A child,

Their joy and innocence and purity,

Their wonderful laughter,

Their hilarious eccentricity

Is simply a reflection.


Oh, the Godess and her body.

The thin slender frame,

With sweet breasts to caress,

That one could just suckle for days,

Reflections of nurture, love and grace


The Creator or the created.

Which shall we love?

Revisted from Glory

The Battle Field

Addicted to money,

We pursue business,

Gaining comfort.


Why not turn to the Jesus, the Word,

In this physical realm,

To be filled with Hope?


Addicted to power and glory,

We pursue athletics and academics,

Gaining control.


Why not turn to the Holy Spirit,

In this spiritual realm,

To be filled with faith?


Addicted to sex,

We pursue women,

And gain significance.


Why not turn to God,

In this emotional realm,

And be filled with love?


The pieces of the puzzle may be moved around and shifted.

Yes, that distortion is the playground of the devil.

It must be difficult
If you are
Or without children
But oh, I feel your pain
If you are
Or have children

Walking Through the Storm

Ive got demons all around me,

They go from place to place,

Their power is unbounding,

Dont let them in this place.


Miracles are lacking,

Death knocks on this front porch,

Grace saves from none attacking

Dont let me burn by torch


Fights, fits and fussing,

Never is a bore,

Exhausting is discussing

Dont let there be no more


Day by day,

You may wonder what keeps me going,

Focus through the fray

The service seeds Im sowing

New Clothes

Dont touch those clothes! Dont try to change my wardrobe! Dont you dare try to fix whats in my closet. Unless you are willing to give me your everything Unless you will be there no matter what Unless you are willing to help clean out my mental closet In a sea full of women, There remains only one And it will hurt like Hell But I will let you in But dont you dare start What you are not willing to finish. ...

Not Afraid

The kingdom of heaven comes to Earth

When we choose to battle through Hell

The biggest demons we face

Stare right back through the mirror

The only way is through

If we ever wish to find our light

Summer Flings

When we met, we were oceans apart,

We knew it was trouble from the start

A twinkle of fate just grabbed my heart

Cupids arrow, that fiery dart

Bittersweet endings, sweet sour and tart

Bricks of tears hauled away by the cart

Falling in love is not very smart

The Dragon Slayer

 She yells at me,

Doesn't he love his own kids,

Why would he not see them?


I calmly reply,

It is not his kids he left,

It is you.


And she freezes,

Shocked that I would say such a thing

But she is paralyzed with an open ear


And while you protect your heart

From the fear that you will never be loved

You must create the reality that it is the family he abandoned.


She sits down,

Tears rolling down her face,

Having an inkling to resist and remain composed.


So I continue before she becomes self aware.

You were never loved as a kid were you?

You were ignored, daddy left, never felt beautiful.


Streams rolling down her cheeks now

As I continue along these lines

An emotional portal opened directly to her heart.


I sit and wait

And let tears flow

There is healing in tears


And frustration and anger and fear

Overwhelm her

But she has the security here to cry.


I see her emerge

A new softness surrounds her

She is ready


She looks at me

As if a glimmer of hope

In her eyes lies a question


You see dear,

You are beautiful beyond comprehension

Afraid of your own light


She wipes her face

Cleans herself

Sits up straight but still hanging on my words


And you dont need me to tell you

Or anyone for that matter

To know that you are unique, special, beautiful, lovable


She finally becomes aware,

Glances around the room

A new peace is formed


Accept the rejection,

Only through accepting reality can you learn your value

Only when you learn to love yourself can you learn to love others.

By beloved's gone,

Feel like I'm missing a rib

Don't know what to do.
