Insolence and InsurrectionThe names of our fragrances,
Yes, these are our choices.
We're known for taking chances,
Raising flags as well as voices.
The disobedient and the rebel,
Insolence and insurrection meet.
Add in pheromones to the spell.
Not so subtle but still quite sweet.
For I'm the long lost flower child,
Don't give me rules to obey.
I live in color, my wind is wild.
No black, white, or shades of grey.
And you, my love, are the rebel.
With your big heart and valiant cause.
You're not trying to cause trouble.
You fight injustice without pause.
So here we merge together now,
Forget the norms and rigid barriers.
We unite our hearts and take a bow,
For love and fairness, we are carriers.

TrustLike the beauty of a rose ready to bloom,
Bathe me in romance and love's perfume.
Trust takes time and cannot be rushed.
Tell me your dreams and secrets hushed.
Give me the bitter along with the sweet.
I'll take your messes, as well as your neat.
Throw caution to the wind, it's time to be bold.
We must open all doors for love to take hold.
Please tell me and show me all that is you.
I will hold you when happy or even when blue.
Trust and know I won't betray you or stray.
You are part of me now, and I'm here to stay.
That look in your eyes and touch of your hand,
We've known all along and we both understand.
This isn't a game, we are here with open hearts,
Both to love and be loved and all that imparts.
It is our gift now, we will do what we must.
We both are ready, in each other we trust.
Knowing love is not easy, it hits and it misses.
As we seal the deal now with garlic bread kisses.

One White RoseWith the sand between my toes,
The ocean's mist upon my face.
A lost dream of one white rose,
And a dress of fine French lace.
Forever now is just a word,
Although not what I was told.
Forget all that you've heard.
Together we will not grow old.
Life goes on and so it goes.
We made it through that fight.
Love comes again and grows.
Maybe this time, we'll get it right.
So come to me and be my love.
Whisk me off to wonderland.
I will put all of my trust in you,
As you hold me by the hand.
That was then, but we are now.
May this be our life's true fate.
As we give our all, not knowing how,
We walk through love's open gate.
Then I look up and see your face.
In your eyes, the truth it shows.
All of you, I willingly embrace,
As you hand me one white rose.

Questions UnansweredIf I should drink from your well,
Will you protect and sustain me?
Or treat me like a Jezebel,
Leave me feeling disdainfully?
Fine wine from a golden chalice,
Or the bitter taste of metal?
A siren's song without malice,
Or the screeching of a kettle?
Drop me on a doorstep crying,
With no remnants left of me?
Or through skies take me flying,
To undiscovered land and sea?
For I have so many questions,
Which you have no time to answer.
My patience now you're testing,
Don't consume me like a cancer.
For love is such a simple word,
And brings with it, such pleasure.
Yet so often goes by unheard,
Elusive like hidden treasure.
So for now, I set my heart free.
I'm strong enough to wait and see.
I have faith true love will find me.
I'll know when it is meant to be.
So I watch the sun so bright,
Upon the water's warm reflection.
One more day turns into night,
As I wait for that connection.

Dear Soulmate,Where have you been,
Dear soulmate of mine?
Have you been in the woods,
Running, hiding behind trees?
Dancing in colorful flower fields,
Or the changing of the leaves?
Have you sailed upon the ocean,
Seen the vastness of the seas?
Shipwrecked on an island,
Waltzing to a native breeze?
Did you get lost in some big city,
With buildings reaching to the sky?
Or hiking through grand canyons,
Climbing mountaintops so high?
Did you brave the frozen tundra,
Polar bears your spirit guide?
Or trail blaze through the jungles,
Where the wild ones try to hide?
Have you traveled round the world,
By boats, and planes, and cars?
Do you ever stop and think of me,
When you're looking at the stars?
No more hiding, the day has come.
Appear now and do your part!
So come to me and show me,
What you've kept inside my heart.

The Cheated American
Government offices brimming with people.
Inefficient paperwork higher than a steeple.
Wait times and long lines out through the door.
Just for a few scraps and a mat on the floor.
Drum up the courage and speak to the poor.
Whatever happened and who's keeping score?
Don't believe this family is here by their choice.
So speak up and don't give away your true voice.
Each and every one, once an ordinary man.
It's not a question of who will and who can.
Grateful and humbled by the stories they tell.
For we too threw pennies in this wishing well.
We are working all day to pay our higher taxes,
While corporate profits put more jobs under axes.
We barely scrape by and are losing our houses.
The weak lose it all and say sorry to their spouses.
For greed and corruption are now the new game.
Assigned a number, who cares what's your name.
With every dollar they get, they will give you a cent.
To keep you downtrodden and make you repent.
No one will know what they skim off of the top.
They check ti
RaindropsThe ground is wet,
It glistens from the rain.
As cars go by.
The birds chirp,
Sleep escapes me.
I lie here musing,
Lost in dreams of you.
They take me there,
Where I can feel you.
Soft, wet kisses,
Stream across my skin.
So real, I shiver
With your touch.
Slowly you taste me,
Our hands interlaced.
Lost in your eyes.
The smell of your skin,
Dark and smooth,
Velvet under my fingers.
My curves, your muscle,
Missing pieces found.
Hearts of the same beat,
Souls again reunited.
Drifting to each other,
Deeper and deeper.
Till there are no lines,
Nothing separates us.
We move as one,
Blended by our love.
Our dreams rise up,
From here to eternity.
Within you, I'm safe.
No judgements found.
The universe is ours.
Exploding like the stars,
Thundering like the herd.
Nowhere to be but here.
Wrapped in each other,
Listening to the raindrops.

Trying not to think too much,
No more worries of love and such.
No need for stories of my life,
The here, the now, the afterlife.
Letting go of everything,
Free the balloon without a string.
Lose control and set it free.
For we are one, there is no me.
Hand it over one and all.
We're spiraling now in free fall.
Don't be sassy or get too sappy.
In the end, we will be happy.
Live in the now, forget the past.
We can make these blessings last.
To worlds within and places higher.
Love shows the way; we are on fire.
It takes a little time and trust.
For love to grow, it is a must.
So I hand over the reins to you.
No expectations, this I must do.
Trust and I'll have all of you.
Spoil me with love that's true.
No more hearts a broken mess.
All it takes is just one yes!

Now Hurry Up
You like my eyes and the way I look.
I find you cute and your wit disarming.
Will you treasure me like a sacred book,
Or lure me in with all things charming?
Cat and mouse chase, push and tug,
So begins this game we like to play.
Will I be floating or crushed like a bug?
Tell me how will I be feeling this day.
Here, there, everywhere but near me,
Letting me wonder what to think or say.
Then you tell me you need my energy,
When I too felt your presence that day.
Now hurry up, you want to explore my mind,
Get lost in my eyes, and my lips be kissed.
Then touch my heart and my soul in kind,
Show me what it is that I have missed.
So many stories and truths unknown,
As we begin to delve into our histories.
Each other's world different than our own,
With light and dark spaces still mysteries.
So where will we meet and what shall we do?
Coffee or tea, or maybe champagne?
Nerves and excitement as we hurry up too,
As long as we're together, we will not complain.
With shared wishes and thoughts q
Heartless......no moreShe needed space like the rest...
She left one instead in his chest...
Remained no heart to be broken
For the words already spoken,
From a confronted confess -
"You are so heartless"
Felt like his insides hollowed;
Felt like he was being followed,
By a black cloud o' lies
Rainin misery and despise.
Put up a wall and fences;
Brought up his defenses.
With pills and a session.
To himself he's confined
Else but heartbreak on his mind
A month or two passed by..
Facing the reality he's tryin to Deny.
Morbid memories he dismembers
And then he remembers....
To get somewhere wholehearted
The secret is getting started..
.. started with a day in the park
..couple o' hours before the dark
Alone in his own zone
Mathers chantin on the headphone
Caught somethin across the aisle
A beaming, beautiful smile.
More than just a few HEYs
Same went for a few day
Talked on and until late
Turned to a dinner at 8
Her beauty, grace and smile,
Life was again wort
My Love The ShipwreckMy love was a shipwreck deep under the sea,
a silent and watery prison for me.
With corners so silent and robes full of death,
and lips that could capture my every breath.
Fingers that groped quite like long strands of kelp,
dragging me down when I begged them for help.
A body as pale as a skeleton sunk,
wrapping me up in a tidewater trunk.
Dragging my tongue across decks made of night,
tangled in rigging that delayed my flight.
Dredging for anchors that didn't exist,
never quite knowing to cease and desist.
The crow's nest held views eternally blank.
Eyeglass-horizons so cloudy and dank.
Ghost-hunting sails without wind from afar,
with watery eyes staring up at the stars.
Drinking deep of a poison more potent than rum;
sobbing for gallows that just wouldn't come.
Walking on sandbars with no relative end,
fantastical promises just 'round the bend.
Screaming out into trenches as deep as the earth.
Discovering death when I wanted birth.
A face utterly haunting could drag me deep d
Quiet LoveTo be with you is like a quiet sunset
No garish sounds or colors to distract
Your words a gentle breeze to fill my senses
Your arms are fading sunlight on my back
Though others may not understand devotion
To such a mild, peaceful type of love
It is in fact the purest of emotion
As gentle and as sacred as a dove
The only sadness yet to mar affection
Is waiting for the time we meet again
For long the days and months of separation
My heart remains amassing love to lend
The Beating of a HeartThe beating of a heart,
Is more than just a sound,
It's the tune of a music hall,
Crowded all around.
The band takes its seats,
The conductor in his place,
A mysterious song,
Takes up a quickened pace.
Will this be in harmony?
Are we a strong duet?
Is this just a solo?
All I can do is fret.
The tempo of my heart,
Is beating out of time,
It's jumping from my soul,
And making my love rhyme.
Frustration surrounds me,
Staccato all around,
My heart's in double forte,
With each and every pound.
It turns into a waltz,
Then a jazzy tune,
This song is too confusing,
All I can do is swoon.
The song inside my heart,
A ballad of the best,
It's turning to allegro,
And running from my chest.
As the melody slows,
A fermata is all that stands,
The audience will pause,
Then join together all their hands.
Our tango was played well,
But I am at a loss,
What is this feeling?
My eyes feel quite cross.
Shall I be a Shakespeare?Shall I be a Shakespeare
And compare you to a summers day?
Or be like any other poet
And draw comparisons between you and May?
I shall see you as the autumn months,
When leaves turn brown and fall.
The trees look much more beautiful
When clad in brazen pall.
Or perhaps you are the winter,
A snowflake that glitters with dawn.
Long nights of comfort before a fire.
A time to smile, instead of mourn.
They say these are both times of death,
Where no beauty can be found.
But beauty depends on where you look,
Even in steel-grey sky and iron-hard ground.
Though you hold not the fires of summer,
Nor the new life that's brought by spring,
The strength of winter and grace of autumn
Are greater, to me, than both those things.
You are a magnificent beauty
With a heart, supposedly, of gold.
But like the autumn, and the winter,
It's a shame you're just as cold.
Death and Wrath: The Twisted EmbraceDeath sat upon his chiselled throne
Wrath in hand
a prisoner, of chance
a lover, perhaps
Life seemed so senseless,
boring; not a struggle
temptation was easy; but yet, they always stay
so well behaved
upon a throne of lies
Death looked to her
Her eyes alive
she craved the blood
of a thousand men
But he loved
yet not another being
The blood came fast
She looked to him
his eyes, dead
he was human, but
She was not
she adored him so
but in pitiful grace
She held him close
and forever, remained
the blood, that ran
Down the lovers' arms
dried, it cracked
it never stayed
The lovers stayed enticed
in a twisted embrace
forever they would stay
in this hell-like trace...
Quando os níveos ferrões da noite intensa
Inoculam-me tóxica peçonha
Que leva-me à tristeza mais medonha
E causa-me ao espírito descrença;
Quando a palavra aos lábios meus é densa
E, congelado em sólida vergonha,
À noite, solitário, já não sonha
Este ser de esperança tão imensa;
Dentre as nuvens noturnas eis que surge
Aquela que nas tênebras se insurge
Contra as trevas em tétrico tropel:
Vem curar-me do amargo nevoeiro
Que me roubou da vista o Sol inteiro
A Lua, imperatriz do negro céu!
Let MeLet me touch your chest
To make sure your hearts beating.
Let me feel your breath
To make sure you're still breathing
Tell me how I look
To make sure you still see me.
Tell me sweet nothings
So I can think you still love me.

Within YouThe stars are shining brightly above.
We gaze at them and wish for love.
The sky is clear, so far we can see.
We are connected, just you and me.
Across the galaxy so far and wide,
Love will find us, we cannot hide.
It may take a while, but never give up.
What is meant to be will always triumph.
The days pass by, and we wonder why.
Where is the love we've needed to fly?
The suns will set, the moons will rise.
You'll know the truth within my eyes.
So please be patient, and do not fret.
I am the butterfly, you hold the net.
Once you are ready, then I will alight.
And when you catch me, all will be right.
Till then, look up at the sky so blue.
You are within me, and I within you.
Our destiny charted, we play our parts.
Invisible strings connect our hearts.
So travel your paths, and enjoy the ride.
Make no mistake, our orbits will collide.
I'll be your morning, you'll be my night.
Our love is strong, it always shines bright.
