"As We Graduate"
By Beth McConnell
 
I don't want to say goodbye to you.
I know that if I say goodbye that may be the end.
 
I want to say see you later.
But then I run the risk of not seeing you later.
 
I want to say I love you.
I want you to know so that you never have to wonder.
 
I want you to know that I'll miss you.
And I don't mean that in a clichťd way.
I really will miss everything about you.
 
I want you to know that I'll never forget you.
The way you look, the way you smell, the way you laugh, the way you hug...
Everything about you will be forever engrained on my mind.
 
I don't want to forget you and I don't want you to forget me.
That's why I promise you now that I will cherish every memory.
 
I don't want to say goodbye to you.
I don't think I can because if I say it I'm going to cry.
 
I don't want to say goodbye to you.
I want to be your friend for the rest of your life.

A LOVERS WOUND
Jenna Michelle Kennedy
A lovers wound is hard to heal
A broken heart is easy to feel
A crowded room is way too small
An empty heart isn't crowded at all
Upon the wing Love will fly
For the wound to heal and cry
Into the night a bird will sail
For now the lovers heart cant fail
So hear the cry gazing into the red ski
And feel the pain because
A lovers wound, Is hard to heal
The lover the wound was given by
The pain he will now feel.

"CATHY"
Written by IRENE E.GARDNER
 
     Seven long years I waited for you, and then you were two weeks overdo.
     I'll never forget the day this earth became your home.
     It was the very best day that I have ever known.
     You were born October twenty eight, nineteen hundred and sixty nine.
     And the first time they brought you to me, I knew that you were mine.
     When they placed you in my arms, you looked me right in the eye.
     My heart was bursting with joy, like fireworks in the sky.
     I opened your blanket and counted fingers and toes.
     I wanted to make sure you had all of those.
     After I was sure you were complete, I covered you up  nice and neat.
     I loved you so much and I still do today, of that you can be sure.
     No matter what happens through out you life, I know you'll be secure.

finding a good woman in this nasty haystack of society-
seeing and accepting true beauty
through eyes that have
grown accustomed to hating,
distrusting- crying.
 
finding a good woman
who makes me want to
think good thoughts-
 
who makes me want to breathe
clean air-
 
who makes me
doubt my agnosticism-
 
a woman who
sees good in me.
 
finding a good woman
is
most splendid.

Two Vines
Irish Jinx
 
Now, just watch me closely as
I relate man to vine:
When you place two side-by-side,
Their tendrils intertwine.
They just grow together with
Never an urge to part,
Sharing and becoming one
In spirit, mind, and heart.
But when one moves away with
Thoughts of return perhaps,
Then the once-strong bond they shared
Just tears apart and snaps.
And if one does come back, the
Other with joy is filled,
But it takes such a long time
For their bond to rebuild.

Angelic
Heinz Guderian
A face so beautiful that it glows
Thanking God that he let you down
A heavenly voice with every sound
A beam of light followin' you around
Where you hide the wings it isn't known
Your halo hidden by your hair
How now is it that I am so lucky
To have been able to hold your heart?
'Twas a bad day when I lost it
But tis a better day when I reclaim it
For every day you grace my presence
And by those days you'll have my heart

=0=

There's nothing I can say
Still I can't find the way
To let you know
That I love you so
 
My heart is like a prison
With those words inside
They can't find a way out
Or if they can, they rather hide
 
My love for you keeps growing
Till it's so big and great
That the walls of my heart
Will surely break
 
Then the magical words
From the bottom of my heart will flee
And they will let you know
That you're the one for me

US!
By: SAHAR B. FAKHOURI
I can't imagine us being apart,
I knew that I loved you from the start.
I would do anything for you,
I just wish you could do the same for me too!
I pray to god Everyday,
For us to stay together, forever in every single way.
Boy all I want is you,
Babe I am ready to say "I Do!"
You are the hottest thing ever,
And I wanna be with you forever.
All you gotta say is this,
Then we'll be makin love,
And I'll finally give you that passionate kiss.
I Love the way you look at me,
And when I look back, this is what I see.
I see us holdin hands,
On god's beautiful land.
I never will let you go,
And I never will say no!
I wanna be there for you,
From good to bad,
Because I Love You,
And I know you love me too!

I Like You
Ashleigh
I looked in the office
then I seen you
You smiled and waved at me
and my legs turned to goo
I went back to my class
longing to see you again
my mom talked to your mom
and our friendship had begin
I said that you are fine
you said that you knew
I started sweating bullets
because I like you

My Father
To my deceased father.
By: Sabrina H. Church Peek

I miss my father.
I wish I could tell him.
I wonder if he knows?
My Father.
You came and left.
Gone before,
I knew what I had with you.
Gone before,
I knew that I loved you.
My Father.
I love you.
There will be no other.
My Father.

it was late one night and we were talking.
i liked you then but i didn't tell you.
our minds were in perfect unison-
i didn't know who'd make the first move.
 
our personalities were perfect.
we both smiled and flirted a lot.
it was apparent-i was hooked.
you consumed my every thought.
 
you were my closest friend.
but i needed more.
you had already reached my heart-
you held the key to the door.
 
the moon glistens off the lake.
the stars shimmer in your eyes.
you lean forward for the kiss-
and all that surrounds us dies.
 
those days have passed.
they have fluttered away.
though they are out of my reach-in my heart that night will always stay.

There are emotions inside me
I don't understand
Things I say and think about you
I had never planned
 
Feelings I fight
To keep hidden inside
Reasons I keep holding on
To an imagined relationship I cant hide
 
I don't understand whether it is wrong
Or if it is right
I do know it has been too long
To change my feelings in just one night
 
I cant stop thinking of you
Even when I Sleep
I cant stop dreaming of you
Even when I'm on my feet
 
This may be a love poem
This may be a hurt poem
This may be a sad poem
But every time they ask me
I always say its your Poem
 
I don't know how I wrote this
I don't know much anymore
All I know is I still wish
You were standing at my door
 
I really did write this
Cause I wish it could change your feelings
I only want one kiss
Because right now we have no relationship with meanings
 
We are only friends
But you know I want more
I'm so sorry I feel this way
I know it makes you feel sore
 
I only wrote this
cause it helped ease my mind
I just cant believe
That for so long I have been Blind
 
Blind to you
who was in front of me
Blind to you
Who I hope will some day love me

LONG LOST LOVE
  Anthony Jacob Hoffa
 

Love love where did you go

I look above and see white clouds like snow.
 It seemed like only yesterday I was holding your hand
than you left with the lord, but why, why does he have you and not me, I don't understand.
I think about you every day
But seeing you isn't possible in any way.
I ask the lord for just one more chance to be with you
But it seems your there for good, you left, you left without a bye or an I love you.
I miss them night when it was just us
but now I have a messenger, god, for her shares all the thing word I discuss.
It just don't seem fair lord
Please I'm just asking for one more night with her, I'll make sure she keeps busy and won't be bored.

Whispers In The Wind

Jvb         March 27, 2003
 
I sit by my window, listening to the whispers in the wind, trying to figure out if they are speaking to me, or just passing by.
I close my eyes trying to figure out what they are saying, blocking out all the other things, only listening to the whispers in the wind.
Could it be love they speak of, or is it a mystery.
Could it be a lost love searching for their soul-mate, or is it someone searching for me.
The whispers in the wind tell me a lot of things, stories of long ago, mysteries about wizards and warriors.
Even stories of passion that went wrong.
The whispers in the wind are my friends, they leave me with a happy feeling.
They let me know they are watching over me.
The whispers in the wind are from my love of long agoÖÖ

The Car Ride

I know I donít know what it feels like to have my dad die
If I told you I did it would be a lie.
 
It may have seemed before that this could never happen to you
Iíve no doubt that this is true.
 
I know you feel pain that I donít understand
But I know it canít feel too grand.
 
It may seem to be unreal
But the pain you still feel.
 
I know I canít empathize
But believe me I sympathize.
 
It may seem that the universe has gone wrong
But remember you donít always have to be strong.
 
I know you may feel the pain will never go away;
That the hurt is here and come to stay.
 
It may seem that his life was too short
That heíll never be there for any more games or anything of the sort.
 
I know youíll feel the loss, but at least youíll always have memories
Please remember to treasure these.
 
It may feel as though the pain is too great
As though the thing on your heart is as big as a freight
 
 I know today the sky may be gray
But tomorrow will be a beautiful sunny day
 
It may seem that this pain will be forever
Because when it comes to things like this pain is very clever
 
I know the birds will sing and you will rejoice
And from heaven youíll hear your dadís voice
 
It may be a while before this occurs
But in the end your heart always stirs
 
I know that through it all youíll have had a friend
Who always had a shoulder to lend
 
I hope that youíll see
That you always did and always will have that friend in me

Open my eyes, look into my soul
Hold my shaky hands, calm my every fear
Take me back where we once were
I can hear it in your voice when I canít even see your face
I can see it in your eyes when you say nothing at all
Lets go back to walking hand in hand,
You catch me, I catch you
Stop holding back walk donít stand
I want to go back when I could feel a warm
 Moist breath on my neck, I want to feel the
Smooth roughness of your skin,
Stop holding back there is no time,
This life is much to short to pass this by
Each day passes and the sun still rises
I canít rise another day without you
I want to go back to sitting on the porch,
Letting the breeze carry ever doubt away,
Time is flying, thereís not much left
I miss you
 I love you and I need you
 Take me back to where we once were
Lets be one, not two, carry me through
I LOVE YOU

MY EVERYTHING
Patrick Joseph Tiernan
she is the perfect poem
the one which fate helps write
she is that natural glow
formed by the sun on gentler days
she is the perfect atmosphere
present when i found myself
she is the flower
which grows beautifully
against the winter grain
she is my favorite song
which i listen to contently
she is the storybook ending
which keeps fairytale hope alive
she is everything perfect
she is everything, to me
i am found with her
because she is, simply,
my everything
embrace her...i do

TRAVIS
Diana St.John
 
When I first laid eyes on you
I knew there was nothing I would not do
To keep you by my side forever
So we could always be together
 
Now that I've know you for this long
I think that I may have been wrong
Yes, of course, we've shared some pleasure
But we do not really belong together
 
The nights we've shared, just us two
Seem as if they meant nothing to you
But I keep holding on day by day
Because I know I'll always feel this way
 
I want to be more than a friend to you
If I could, I would belong to you
Together forever, just you and me
But unfortunately, that can never be

Eternal Night
By Tamara Beryl Latham, c 2003
 
How deep this night
whose ebon glassine pool
spills chromium stars
to light an onyx sea.
 
How cold this night.
The wind is still as death,
as Winter calls,
without remorse,
to chill your warm,
sweet breath.

One Day...
By Alicia Driver
One day, when the clouds have cleared and the sky is clear,
Will be the day I've dreamed about, I'll be back in the arms of you.
No more sadness, no more pain,
Our lives will be filled with happiness once again...
 
One day, when the fog has lifted and the path is clear,
Will be the day I've thought about, I'll have no more fear.
No more heartache, no more lies,
Our love will be for real as I see it in your eyes...
 
One day, when the leaves have parted and the sun shines through,
Will be the day I've wished about, I know this time'll be true.
So much laughter, so many smiles,
Hand in hand together we'll walk many miles...

Substance
Dwayne Chastain
I remember a time, not so long ago.
I felt so alive, I wanted to grow.
Things were all rosy, things were okay.
I opened my heart, I was ready that day..
You needed attention, you wanted my touch.
What was the purpose? You expected so much.
You took and not gave, broke the golden rule.
I was playing your game, now I am the fool.
How dare you apologize, how could you not see.
That through these times, you meant something to me.
Half a century is gone. and still there you sit.
Still looking to find, someone with the right fit.
What is important to you? Anything that is real?
You live in the past, your happiness you steal.
How could you betray me? Please tell me why.
Is there substance within you? Do you ever cry?
Remember this story, remember those times.
I was there for you, Me and my rhymes.

My Eyes Will Be Watching
by Mary L. Layfield
 
When we are apart,
look to the sky,
see, my eyes?
 
See how they glitter?
 
Like Argus, the never sleeping,
they watch over you,
until I can return to your side.
 
They are your protection.
 
Look to them, my love.
They are my pledge and promise
of eternal adoration.
 
Go now, my one,
and seek your bed,
rest in peace.
 
My eyes will be watching.

Wings of Heaven
For M. P.
Jvb/June 10, 2003
 
When our eyes met, I knew that we were destined to be good friends.
We talked and shared lots of conversations about our lives.
It seemed as if you and I had known each other for years.
Our conversations seemed to always start off with a smile, but of course
You were my friend.
When you smiled, the room would light up, like a bright shinning diamond in the sky.
You were a very special gift that entered into my life, and Iím glad that I had the opportunity to share your wonderful gift, it was the gift of ďfriendshipĒ.
A friendship that I will always treasure.
I know that you are now resting on the wings of heaven, your laughter and smile will always and forever be in my heart.

Love
-Victoria Costikyan
What is love?
How do we know if we never felt it?
Touched by someoneís loverís hand
So smooth and soft
How would we know what it is like to be touched?
Feel their love in our hearts? For we are silly children with crushes
But never love
Just simple crushes
They mean no more to us then love does.

Made Whole
Rebecca Faye Kent
Farewell my sins,
And my transgressions,
For I have Jesus as my might.
 
For God will lead me,
And he will see me,
Through the rough parts of life.
 
I am finally made whole,
For he has cleansed my soul,
And made it pure blossoming white.
 
And when my life is done,
And I am finally home,
I'll never grow weary of the sight.

THE MOST SYMBOLIC
A. FERRELL
 
exhaust fumes are clouding my head
that muffler sounds familiar i think
i look out the window to see if it's you
squinting my eyes looking through fairytale darkness
the sky emits no light, nothing if you are not here
i have forgotten the touch of that seatbelt
that made me so safe
i could drive for hours with that seatbelt on
and never ask where we were going
because i knew if i was with you it didn't matter
the midnight smell has retreated from my mind
as i wonder if you'll ever come back
and say you love me the way i think it's supposed to be
canceling plans and rearranging my life
just so i can wait up for you
and hope you shut off your car and close your door and walk up the driveway and ring the bell
that is the only noise right now that could stop my heart
and that surprised look on your face
like you thought i wasn't home
because you surprise me with every stare every smile every laugh every strum every word
from that mouth of yours
the mouth of a person who changed my life
waiting for those exhaust fumes to smell familiar

=0=

Tomorrow was so clear but fate had me blind. I glanced away then back Again and your eyes locket into mine. I knew this moment that true love did exists. The way you looked that night my heart could not resist ill never forget those shoes that skirt that top. An eternity it of happiness as if time seemed to stop.

For Kirsty.
Simon (O.H.)
I promised to put pen to paper,
And un-earth my pensive passion,
But what I think of your fine self,
Cannot be satisfied in such a fashion,
It would take more than I could give,
To let you know just what I thought:
Every flower, every flame, every sweet touch,
And every second, of every day, evermore...
 
There are things I have and haven't done,
But to you I can promise,
I've never felt like this before,
I've never been so honest.
And about "what I did to you before",
If I was wrong in doing so I apologize,
Just a form of expression, but it's not worth it,
If I can't feel innocent when I look into your tranquil eyes.
 
You hold my mind in your hand,
A secret in your grace,
A key to my happiness,
Wrapped in your perfect face,
An overwhelming innocence,
Locked in your delicate touch,
Warms my skin, makes my heart whimper,
It means so much; you mean so much.
 
You're the most amazing spectacle,
I've ever been blessed enough to know,
But to kiss, to touch, it makes me breathless,
To even be able to hold.
 
Just another heartfelt poem,
From one lover to another,
I hope that you can smile again,
Now my thoughts are uncovered.

Dedicated to the memory of my father
Melissa Easterwood
Your heart was as good as gold and yet you died at fifty-one years old.
I thought that we'd have time to spend, but with bad news it soon would
all end.
I wanted to tell you what you wanted to hear, that soon the cancer would
just disappear.
But I knew deep down that that was a lie, and there wasn't much time before you would die.
When I realized this I just ran away, my heart was breaking and I couldn't stay...
Then the time came when the cancer was at its worst. They put the phone to your ear my mind was a burst.
What should I say? What should I do? And all I could utter was I love you.
I wanted to tell you you were such a good father, but no, not me, I was too selfish to bother.
I was too wrapped up in my own pain and couldn't see past all the heavy rain.
Now it's been a year since you passed away, and I know in my heart is where you'll remain.

I cannot tell if
it was his handshake
or
his eyes
that first spoke "welcome"
that first invited me
into his home
or into his heart
 
He took me by the hand
but I could not tell
if it was our fingers
entwined
or our hearts
 
Yet...
I was in his home
and his mistress's...
did I dare break their home
with feelings of desire?
 
Nights went by,
and our souls stood upon borders
we dared not cross
He took the first step
I relished the moment, relished his love
 
I stood at my carriage the very next day
bade him farewell
he would not leave my hand
and I would not leave his heart
 
It haunts me still
my Forbidden Love
that was never meant to be

"Freedom"
E Kelly Jr. 
I knew it when I saw you
For the very first time
I was in for trouble
Of the very best kind
 
I see the way you look at me
Behind your marble screen
Piercing through my confidence
With the eyes of a forgotten Queen
 
Trust me when I say I know you
Iíve been with you for years
Iíve danced in you joy
Iíve howled in your tears
 
I was there when you were in love
Iíve seen you win and lose
Iíve watched you walk alone in torment
Iíve seen the abuse
 
I wish I could protect you
Keep you safe and dry
If the darkness tried to fall on you
Iíd hold open the sky
 
You donít need me to save you
Youíre as tough as Iíve ever seen
Youíre strong enough to takeím all on
You are beautiful, powerful and free  
 
The Mighty Sun in all it glory
And the brightness with witch it shines
Is forced to sit in jealously
Of the light within your eyes
 
You are lovely to me
I submit, I forfeit, I cease
In you I found my heart again
My love, my soul, my peace
 
Even if I never know you 
As a lover or a wife
You will always be the angel
He sent to save my life
 
Your gaze has broken through
The wall I built in pain
That kept me from feeling
What little hope remained
 
Loving you has torn away
The bindings and the chains
I am grateful Lovely One
For the freedom love attained

"Change"
Andre Edmond
 
  If I could change anything, what would it be?
Could it be world starvation, homelessness or helping the
blind to see.
  Maybe it could be world peace or it may be better if
I just let things be.
Cause before I can change anything, I have to start with me.
  What good would it be if I cleaned the world up
But still in my head, my thinking is so corrupt.
  I must first change the things that are wrong with me.
Before I try to change anything especially society.
  So, I'll start by changing old habits like smoking
and drinking.
Then maybe I wouldn't suffer from errors in my
thinking.
  Next, I think I'd shed some light on the dark
I'll start this process by having a change of heart.
  No more will I hurt those that love me and
yearn to keep me near.
  I just have to open my eyes as well as my heart,
and be more sincere.
  What I chose to altar to you may seem
strange.
But to me, I have to be more concerned about
my own change.
  Reason being, the world is filled with
enough fraud.
  The last thing we need is me trying to be
GOD.
  Things could be going according to his plans
so I'll leave world change in the Lord's hands
  An stick to something that He'll be grateful to see.
And that is that the only change I wanted was the change me.

i want to thank you
for always being there
in good times and in bad
you were there
when i needed you
you helped me through the tough times
you shared the good times with me
you never told me
i wasn't good enough
you told me
not to give up
and that you would always be there
what would i do without you
i would be lost,
for you are my light in the dark

You
Ciobanu Madalina

You have as arms two silver wings
And your eyes, from blue become darker ...so it seems
Two silent eyes, of saint draw in the altar
You are as a mystery...so gentle
A boy with so many feelings
A guitar with unknown meanings
A star in the dark night
You are a symphony of light,
The poem of the first experiences.
So you are something i can not say
You are the fragrance of a flower in May.

Ambler Gallops In My Blood
By:  Azza El Wakeel

Your love jumped from the unknown
Into my heart like an ambler
Burst galloping in my blood
Leaving its print on every drop
All my barriers of fear
Vanished facing him
Stubbornness smelted
Ambler ruptured a volcano
Of feelings and emotions
I never thought was inside me
Never imagined its image
In my fancy
Ambler dived in my sea
Discovered pearls in the depths
I never dreamed there were shells
In my deep water
Ambler gallops in my blood
Swims in my sea
As if he were racing pulses, age
And moments

MY LIGHTHOUSE
Joyce Anna-Marie Massad
 
  You sense my emotions the turbulent storm that rises in me.
  You are my lighthouse guiding me over the raging sea.
  In your embrace I have cried.
  In your love I have died.
  Only to be reborn into a brand new day.
  I will always love you this way.
  Your strength flows into me.
  Oh the colors I see.
  When we come together time stands still.
  No one ever can come closer.
  No one ever will.
  You are the depths of my soul
  I am completed now whole.
  I am all the woman I will ever be.
  When you are here loving me.

Today I woke up and realized you never truly did love me.

     All the times you came and woke me up saying I love you,
     was just because.  If you truly did love me and want me in
     your life like you said you did you wouldn't have lied to me,
    or about me.  So why the lies, the tears, and pain.  Why are
   we still so very much connected?  Do you care?  Do you still
    want me in your life?  Why do I care so much?  The pain I feel                   
inside is a new pain.  One I have never felt before.    For I gave you
     something that can never be returned to me.  I gave you a
   gift that    no other has received from me.  Actually I gave you two          
one my heart.  With that comes my love.  The other is
          irreplaceable.  Something I could only give one man, and
      I chose you.  So why tear out my heart like you did?  Why such
          agony and pain?  Should I still love you?  Do you even
       care?  Do you the happiest I have been in a long time
         was when I was with you!?!  All the lies can be forgotten
       except the lie of you telling her I said crap I didn't say!
              Does she really matter that much to you?
                When you said that you wanted to marry me and
          have kids with me was that all crap?  Just something to say
              so you could have me!?  The worst part of it all
                               I still love you with all my heart!

My Own Wraith

Zanne B.
In our container
We see so many things
Some are free
Others pulled by strings
Looking out a window
Looking out at rain
Just turning on a light
Can sometimes bring us pain
The frailty of our world
Compared to a thread
If I went with the world
I'd probably be dead
Just thinking of a sad song
Lying on the floor
Reminds me that theres sorrow
Knocking on my door
To escape from that alone
Requires a test of faith
When I look at myself
I feel so much like a wraith
But then there comes a time
When every dream comes true
And that day finally came
The day I met you

Frankie...
to the love of my life.
Brandy Lee Engle
When you said sorry
I don't know why...
You broke my heart
In one small sigh.

I accepted your faults,
I begged for your love,
I worshiped your life,
And all i got was a shove.

Blown away by your words
My legs began to shake
I wanted to cry,
But i had to be a fake.

So many tears
Have landed upon my cover,
I constantly think about you
Even tho i have another.

FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL
Djemila Husejdic
I you only knew
how I felt about you...
just the thought of you is such a high
seeing you hurts, I don't want it to be good-bye
Your voice is sweet comfort
your slightest touch feels so good it hurts
I wish I could tell you so you knew
but somehow I think you already do
I have a feeling someday we'll be together
until then I don't think I'll find better
I just pray to God the guy I marry
is exactly like you
I know it can't be you which is scary
but knowing you is enough boo.

Before Time
Sophia Natasha
Before it's gone in a blur, Time
filters every sorrow,
To persuade every lament.
Raging rain pours upon this vacant face,
Prod no more, but confess.
Sprawled across the floor, endless questions.
unceasing emotions engraved.
Before it saunters to an end , Time.

Three Simple Words
By: Victoria Carlson
 
We have been together
For almost a year
You still have not said
Those three simple words
 
I say them to you
You say nothing back
I look in your eyes
You blank stair at me back
 
You break the silence
However, they donít come
I long to hear
Those three simple words
 
You freeze for a moment
I hope to hear
Those three simple words
 
I Love You Dear
