Lure

By D. Sager, published on Nov 19, 2011

Your song, whispered in a sweet sensual incantation

The spell so strong, I cannot resist

Your voice, inspiring a delicious strong sensation

The lure so sure, I cannot run

Your eyes, creating potent captivation

The draw so clear, I cannot stop

Your enticement, leaving no reconciliation,

Laying down my defense, I can only surrender

Recovery

By D. Sager, published on Nov 18, 2011

Recovery is a four letter word. Not the cliché' “recovery” like addicts use, but, the kind of recovery that every successful and joyful human being has to initiate on a regular basis. Having the tenacity to lay down a bad relationship and carry on, face a business mistake or failure and come back to win, publicly humiliate yourself and still hold your head up high and have a life well lived and be the envy of all your naysayers.

This ability to come back from the edge is indispensable to living your life with happiness and accomplishment. It is the essence of all joy and success.... (more)

Remember

By D. Sager, published on Nov 18, 2011

During the last couple of years I have been exposed to a whole sub culture of people who are presently incarcerated or have recently been incarcerated. A large percentage of these people are caught in a tangled web of addiction and recidivism. Its heartbreaking to hear the lonely voices, the cries of the broken people wanting their loved ones to understand and give them one more chance.

I've seen them stranded in the prison, crying out for anyone to know they still exist. Don't get me wrong, I know most of them deserve what they got. Nearly all of them made choices that directly... (more)

Love Again

By D. Sager, published on Nov 17, 2011

I loved someone with a genuine love. It was not returned to me and in fact, I was spurned. I turned away, saddened by my gullibility at having opened up like I did. After a time of mulling on the lost love, I realized, I still loved that person and by having that love, I discovered things about myself that were lost to me before. I learned to dance, and, I found my gift of music that was lost for many years. So then, I ask myself, “should I look on this as a bad thing?” I say, NO! I am the richer for having loved than holding myself back. Loving brings to us, the person doing the loving,... (more)

Rut

By D. Sager, published on Nov 17, 2011

When they first started,

hardly a trail was seen.

Many then passed, a road now gleaned.

Deeper still, water they bore,

Making them dangerous lore.

Now I find my wheels caught still,

By the ruts of habit, against my will.

Pulling out is the hardest task,

Harder still not falling back.

She doesn't know what she is doingOnly acting on what was taught herBehaving irrationally and usingdestroying those who loved herShe goes on with her lifeonly causing painthere is always strifecollateral damage, no gain. Hurting people, hurt people. It is no surprise, when you chase that hell bent soul over the edge, that you are drawn down after them. Stand strong on your own ground and know when to let go. Some people cannot be helped by you rescuing them. They must live out their destiny, which they themselves have chosen, and you must let go. Beware then of collateral damage, for their... (more)

A Uniquely Exquisite Pattern

By D. Sager, published on Nov 16, 2011

I bear wounds that seem to never heal, a constant pain that surrounds all my reality. Where will I go from it? What will I do with it? Pain is my fuel to stoke the fires of excellence and success. Without it, I am powerless before pleasure, seduced to be complacent. Embrace your weakness, it is your greatest power. I bear the marks of life's whips in a uniquely exquisite pattern. So beautiful their ragged trails, making a name for myself, survivor. Who can argue with my experience? To excel you must accept your own pain. You must use it, not fight it. When you fight it, hide from... (more)

A Walk In The Rain

By D. Sager, published on Nov 16, 2011

I walked in the rain,

head bowed against the martyr rain drops

I walked in the rain,

the wind directing the assault,

my skin wet with the attack

I walked in the rain,

feeling the dance on my cheek,

drops and pseudo tears

I walked in the rain,

and never felt so alive.
