Past events reel before me, often placing a smile on my face. Time and again some memories surface from the cranial depths and become the part of my present, creating an even more wonderful and cherishing new memory. Living life to me is like seeing a good movie in an old cine theater, laughing, crying and letting all my emotions fly into the hall's quarter darkness, unintentionally memorizing the best scenes and dialogues and now and then looking back at the projector room with curiosity, wondering "How the hell does that thing works". It feels good when I can see life through this window... (more)

There comes a time in your life when you finally get it ... When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out "ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on." And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle... (more)
Valuing life and caring for it is one of the traits that have been planted into us some were along our evolutionary footsteps.

There are times when you want to get away
Running away from the beeping of your mind
You foster the pain in your heart
Letting it nourish the raw wound of betrayal ***
This world needs a giant sweep
Clearing away all the dust
Of hate and ignorance
Washing clean this intolerance***
Lifting a hand to hurt a fellow being
Inscrutable disregarded darkness
Oblivion to values of the soul
Creating incomprehensible anguish... (more)
Storms tempestuous raging the lakes cresting with exertion of life*** After the storm the sun broke through warming my soul beckoning me with hope the river banks serene majestic harmony Quiescent serenity*** Storms will come Tears cascade with endlessness insinuated lament seemingly eternal whimpers of longing*** For the avidity of the sun the caress of purity and innocence lost turning our tears to mist*** Rising within to be no more...to erase forever with rebirth Of faith and hope rejuvenated strength grace undeserved*** Dancing and sparkling in our hearts... breaking forth...

Never knew what trust meant,till I broke it.
Never knew I hated silence,till you chose it.
Never knew how I felt,till I lost you.
Never knew what winning was,till I failed.
Never knew what hope meant,till I lost it.
Never knew the mild breeze,
till life knocked the breath out of me.
Never knew the beauty of sunshine,
till the rain came by.
Never knew how easy it is to advice,
till I tried to follow.
Never knew how strong I am,
till I fought back.
Life is one lesson, you won’t learn,
till ... (more)
I was always taught that all things are born and the destined to die. I don't think there has ever been a time in my life where the death of something made me overly sad. I have had to question but only one death in my life and that was my fathers'. As I found out late yesterday afternoon when arriving home after picking my son up from a friends is I should have cut a certain old giant down many years ago. I could never bring myself to cutting it down tho, it has grown, thrived, and survived in that very spot for who knows how long. It has weathered countless storms and the severity of the... (more)
...I have to spend a considerable amount of time filtering out all of their bullshit not only from here on my blog(s), but on Facebook, my e-mail, and Pinterest as well. Y'all have spread like a disease. In fact that is the name I have given to my hater fans, "The Disease", since your goal in life is to infect and spread without control or regulation. You idiots should be feeling a sense of pride and unity right now but you are probably to fucking stupid to know this honor has been bestowed upon all of you. Unfortunately you have no leader and shall continue to chase your ass around in... (more)
Today I paint a picture Longings on a canvas My lips leaving their colors My hands their caress... Woven on this masterpiece The warmth of your sweet skin Only just beginning Never wanting it to end... With each stroke sweet emotion Leaving us wanting more Tell me what is hidden Behind this open door... Exploring sweet surrender Lost in this embrace The portrait of fascination Written on our face... Our hearts fill with desire I see it in your eyes Motivating us both higher Who knew we could fly... A portrait painted freely Each movement meant to be Etched into a snapshot Everlasting... (more)
