Life's Dead Lullaby

What is there to write,
when words cannot describe,
the life that passes you by,
to be with me tonight.
my heart that's scarred inside,
lives within the lie,

Of Life's Dead Lullaby.

To please with in the pain,
By the souls of immortalism,
with what is lost,
you cannot regain,

Of Life's Dead Lullaby.

To watch the pain and sorrows,
of joy's lifeless breathes,
to be deep inside,

Of Life's Dead Lullaby.

Bless the night,
for it will not pass,
for the Angels,
do not sigh for me anymore,
and with each lifeless touch,
I will always think of you,

As Life's Dead Lullaby...





I wrote this one night thinking of some people I care about... you know who you are... I Love All Of My Friends... if I didn't then I wouldn't have chosen y'all you walk beside me on this journey that I am going through... I pick my friends carefully and if you didn't know that then just ask one of them... Y'all mean the world to me and all I feel like it that you don't even want to hold my hand.... Blessed Be Bitches!

When I write poetry I write things that I want to be remembered. I think of famous artist writers lovers and pretty much any one that I have fallen in love with by word song dance touch and taste.  With this being said, I want to write on the topic of love, and I don't mean poetry. I hope this will inspire you my friends to think about this in a new light.

William Shakespeare, one of the most breathtaking authors is noted for saying, "Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs."

When I hear it I think of the early morning, when the sun is slowly coming into the windows, and you can hear the birds talking while they are in search of food. I think of the first time in the morning I roll over still been in your embrace and I feel the sweet quiet breathe on my neck.

Love isn't always about true love, because honestly how many times have you seen true love find each other? Sorry that was cynical… But think about the random things that makes us have fleeting feelings and emotions of love.

We all feel strongly when our hearts become enthralled with certain items. From passion to lust to kindness to pain, our hearts pull us from the dirt to cloud nine to the gutter all over again.

The things that makes us go round and makes us feel alive and enveloped in our own egomaniacal selves, but just for that small small instant that you are with the one you care about everything is so beautiful.

All your senses seem to be alive each taste is better each touch is stronger, you feel as if those around you fade in the background and it is only you and them in some far off distant place to where the only thing being thought about is that other person.

But this is a feeling that is always short lived, you feel it rushing from you when you realize that yes it is morning and yes they are leaving. No sorry they cant stay longer and cuddle some more they cant stop getting dressed and realize and soak in what all has happened the night before. Sometimes they want to leave because they feel scared about these strong feelings and believe it is best to run from them in a blaze of glory when they should have stayed the whole time because they could have better realized what did take place.

You see some of the greatest moments of love and affection happen when you least expect it… When you are talking about the special times and thoughts that go through you head during those ten seconds of silence after the last sentence is spoken. The electrifying kiss that happens when you and your lover are enthralled in passion as the lightening strikes and the rain slams down, and the thunder shakes the house with earthly vibrations. When you hold each others water soaked bodies in the shower and feel each bubble of soap slowly go down your body. When all is silent in the night and you open your eyes just to watch your lover asleep beside you, so peaceful, so quiet, so tender and fragile during the last of the late night moments.

It becomes an addiction, this façade as you heart  is slammed, your small beating boat against the rocky shores from the intrepid songs of this thing called love.

"Perfect love is rare indeed - for to be a lover will require that you continually have the subtlety of the very wise, the flexibility of the child, the sensitivity of the artist, the understanding of the philosopher, the acceptance of the saint, the tolerance of the scholar and the fortitude of the certain."
Leo Buscaglia

Too many things demand understanding in life, to men there is women, to women there is peace, to us all there is love. And with all these things one must accomplish in the end in order to achieve their own answers, that is the simplest things are not to me answered as if so some extra credit, they are to be experienced.

Jilted

I am sorry that I hurt you
I am sorry that your mad
I am sorry you feel it needs to come to this
Despite all the love that we have
You said your feelings changed
And it was long ago, deep inside
I am sorry that I scared you off
For you to run and hide

All I want to do is kiss away your tears
For you are my hopes, my dreams, my anguish crying fears
For you I gave up smoking
And changed the way I am
Even though you say you don't feel the same
So to the slaughter I am the lamb
My love for you is still here
And it continues to grow deep inside
For you are my king and I hope day to be your queen
And not this jilted bride.

What about me?


What About Me???? Every one wants to know. My Life ebbs and my life flows. I see things through the eyes of the tortured souls. Because that where I was long ago. I saw the pain and fear in my mothers eyes. Let alone the Tell Tale lies. My father beat us and my mother cried. I got stronger and my mother went to hide. They got divorced and she married another. We allowed him to beat on us but then he turned to my brother. He is so frail, but strong inside. My fury burned and I let my fists ride. Like rockets burning as fast as that speed of light. I knew then this would not be the last fight. He'd get drunk and make a mess. I'd get my family out with their looks of hopelessness. He is know pissed, for he has no punching bags to hit. He turned to me with his eyes on fire, just freshly lit. I fought him every time. As we did this I knew the cops were going to arrive. It is pretty sad when the local cops know you by name. They know every thing about you and exactly whose to blame. It's not the dad, and its not the mom, it's whatever they were drinking in the bottle or the jar. It's late in the evening and I have to wake up soon. I haven't slept at all and my clothes still stink. Of the shit my "father" likes to drink. But I know tonight was a good night, because my brother and my mother can still see the light.

For those who struggle


Teddy Roosevelt once said, "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Everyday someone has one of "those" days. Their car won't start, the coffee maker is broken, there is a fly in your beer that you just ordered, but we must realize that through one of "those" days there is always someone we unconsciously have stepped on. Think about it... you are irritated over the days events and you smart off to a friend who is trying to help you get over things. Then you don't understand why people don't want to hang out or talk to you for a while. You burn bridges when you think irrationally. People struggle to get through life just to realize that they are worried all about the wrong things. Life is a fickle partner that we must lead and not let it fall to the wayside in the dance.

Even though we have rough times, we need to remember who we love and who loves us. Our friends are the best thing that has ever happened to us, we must treasure them and love them for every thing that they stand for: Love, Honesty, and Trust.

"In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. The young they keep out of mischief; to the old they are a comfort and aid in their weakness, and those in the prime of life they incite to noble deeds."
---- Aristotle


So mister "I want to be alone," just remember that I will be there, or miss "I can't take another day of this," I will be there too. I love each and everyone of my friends, of my bright and beautiful stars. We all struggle but it is those little things in life that make it all worth it. To see you sisters grow up, to see your first nephew run across the room and grab your legs because he wants to hug you and not let you go home, these are what that is worth being happy, not feeling weak, not the struggle.

As Joe Dirt said, "Life's a garden, Dig it."


Hopefully yours,
Danel

Thoughts of Life


I sit and watch and think about what has gone on in this world today,
I wonder if it should really be like this.
Should there be hate and tyranny and destruction,
Or should all of this just be positive production?
I like to think that it was fun while it lasted,
Before i was mained and my name be casted,
Out unto the sea that is black as night,
Out unto the sea that is filled with strive.
One that makes the world go round,
But one that shall bring you to the ground.
I tell you now that the earth is rich and full,
Just as long as you keep your cool.
So next time you sit and wonder,
Think about your life while you ponder.
