OPEN MIC ENCORE I
My love for you
your the one that i want
your the one that i need
your the one that makes me walk
and to be strong to succeed
you make me smile
you make me dream
you make me want to wait awhile
to be close to you as it seems
i feel you love me for myself
i feel you will give me a chance
i feel your love and not someone else's
come with me and let me show you the romances
i know you'll be so great to me
i know you'll reminisce everyday that i am true
i know you'll be so happy
because i will never stop saying i love you!
FREEDOM OF CHOICE
by Lynne E. M. Taylor
I look into my children's eyes
Their love smiles back at me,
I would never tell them any lies
There's nothing but honesty.
They can talk to me about anything
They have the right to choose,
It's amazing what freedom can bring
There's nothing but the truth.
I watch them sing, I watch them dance
They can run and jump about,
They are given every single chance
To be angry or to shout.
Their love is special, their love is good
They'll never have pain or fear,
Their love is pure, that's understood
They're allowed to shed a tear.
I see my children laugh and play
Enjoying the happiness they bring,
I'm grateful to share their smiles each day
'Cause their love means everything.
CANVAS OF MY HEART
Canvas of my heart,
woven in dream webs,
turning richer and brighter
as passage of time ebbs;
landscape of memories,
though old but never turning grey,
tender as strands of silk
with each passing day;
yet, somewhere within the core of my heart
lie empty spaces, so near
yet so far apart,
wanting to be filled
with rainbow hues,
myriad of colours,
some old, some new.
And as I spin the magic of dream,
the strands become one
and spaces in between
merge together with shades all new...
my canvas is filled with
thoughts of... you...
it is noticeable
it is tested
both sinful and holy
it has killed and yet may remaining alive possible
for this it is both innocent and a criminal
a reason for hope
a reason for dismal
some are hellish
others are godsend
witness what the evil men do
when we split what they do
is laugh and ridicule at what we call love
petrified of getting hurt, they hesitate to believe in love
witness what the evil men do
looking down at all this shit we've been through
tell me if it's the beginning or the end
is all this drama about to end?
tell me if it's the start of a new day
i love you is all that i can say.
I see you, dear, in the darkest of night,
Standing there blind to the eye, but not to the mind,
I see your beautiful face, shinning with love's light,
Trying to show me the path that I can no longer find.
I hear you, dear, through the density of loss,
The wondrous tune coming through the pain,
Leading me near you despite the cost,
Step by step closer to you again.
But this darkness has its own retribution,
And fights against the dreams I try to hold,
And fills my mind with endless confusion,
Trying to leave me alone here in the cold.
I saw you, dear, but now your image is gone,
Trapped behind the density of the dark,
I heard you, dear, but now I am deaf to your song,
And the only sound left, is the breaking of my heart.
Where are you my love?
Whom do I trust or believe.... nobody!
Can I trust even me being a selfish?
And having an undecided mind.
If I cannot keep my words or proposals
To me how can I believe myself?
The me sense in this body has given
Hardly something actually accept-
Sorrow, horror, self-centered ness
Yet seems the opposite.
It has given me interest to ignore
The necessary things and truth
And strengthen irrational conflicts
In mind-and even I cannot know
Its reality as it's impossible to understand.
So I must tighten it up -
And try my best for actual.
BY TITUS KUWERUZA
A pile of unfinished letters,
ripped pictures, and dried flowers
locked in a bottom left drawer
avoiding an inevitable reflection
of a feeling so deep, so intense
reserved for a long gone traveler.
And her distant cry fades
like a whisper in a hurling wind;
a faint echo delivers tears
longing for a long gone traveler
suspended in space.
When she dines with many guests,
Her lonely heart guards traces
of false passionate promises.
She is long gone in a timeless self
like a traveler far from home
searching for lost valuables.

How true it is
that loving will leave you open
If you try to pretend
that love is not real
you will be lying.
And yet somehow
that same love
will cut you.
You cannot lie to yourself,
for truth is truth
and still the pain is real.
For to love is to take a chance.
you may cry
You may yell
You may regret.
Love is that.

Death of Loved Ones
I can be peaceful and seem to be quiet.
Inside myself, its loud, and there's quite a riot.
Hate in my heart , has created my mental hell.
Happy and/ or social, my hurt they can never tell.
Pain took the place, emptiness, when I couldn't cry.
Anger and loneliness, I too just wished to die.
Why didn't they Warn us that it hurt so bad.
I seen the tragedy over and over again, just by looking at my dad.
Death is like a shadow,
Taunting me where ever I go.
Death follows me in to my house,
And even in to my dreams.
For now all I can do is keep running,
Till death leaves me alone.
Rain falls down upon passion profound,
as thunder rolls on without a sound.
Lost is my soul within pools encompassed in your eyes,
my life left breathless as the whole world sighs.
Two bodies intertwined with newfound passion,
discovering new treasures through euphoric seduction.
Mysteries explored with each tender caress,
my body yearning for only you to possess.
Dew settles softly on glistening skin,
I'm engulfed in your love,
my soul is enlightened.
Inhibitions are shed as I release my control,
unto an empowering desire that you now hold.
Our spirits lost between my world and yours,
creating a new universe only we can explore.
Touching more boldly, we let our senses discover,
what can only be found between true destined lovers.
Glistening bodies become one within storm,
as a new desire begins to now take form.
Caresses now become passionate cries,
as a tender moistness embarks between my thighs.
My body succumbs with passionate bliss,
while your lips provoke another enduring kiss.
You look into me with mysterious eyes,
only to see into the soul where you future now lays.
Looking into eyes that Gods will created,
knowing for this moment, our whole lives we've waited.
Slowly your body empowers mine,
to seek the treasures that we both shall find.
Lost in our world, the universe collides,
with our destiny before us, a new soul shall rise.
Two worlds are now forever one,
as the clouds break away revealing our new day's sun.
My kindness is no more there
Instead there's a dark nightmare
Can't you see? It is your care
Makes me so alone, all alone
the sun shining brightly on my face
but it couldn't make my heart feels better
my half-breath has gone
and i'm already wake up yet
i'm still searching you till my lonely dream
where are you my lifetime friend?
without you i'm nothing
i'm dying and i'm sick
would you call me just for a little while?
cause i'm thirsty to hear your voice
my dear friend,here i am
always waiting for your coming
hope you will read my notes
which i'm writing into your soul
What a reward!
Riaz Ahmad Raja
What beauty I must praise!
Whose image shall I raise?
To limbo everything sinks!
Why summon fading links?
My heart bleeds to pour blood
And blood washed with blood,
Sombre sky and a dreary night,
The dazzle yon blinds my sight.
“And abandon thy dear self too.”
A sweet voice my heart to woo,
Who’s in the heavens singing?
“Beware the Healer’s coming.”
“Watch out for witches and deceit
Swap mauve for essence so sweet
The luxury if thou truthfully desire,
Dive headlong into the leaping fire.”
Your,love is is more real, the the need for the air.The body needing water
you supply this love that fills me up.Lifts me up never to let me down, you
inspire rewrite the meaning of love for me and for that I'm grateful. You
push me to be a better me balance me to be a better women. Through
your eyes, I see how beautiful I am I see the life that we will create
together.It is so hard now to look see you here with me.For so long I have
prayed for you, waited for you to be sent from the heavens.Now after so much
time ater waiting for so long I have found my haven away from the negative
in this world.My softness from just being a women in your arms.My dreams
through your eyes.
As I sit here on the floor
surrounded by all your things
I touch them all, one by one
With each and every one I touch
I see the joy that fills your eyes
This memory is not hard to find
As I sit here remembering these things
I can also remember how much
you have grown, since you have been
home to enjoy all your things
There will be some toys that you will no
longer want to play and some of the cutest
clothes that you have now out grown
And that little foot that has since grown
will no longer fit into those Dora boots
Should I hang on to all these things
Or should I give them away for someone
else to play
But this I do know
These things of yours, help me through these
times of missing you so
Though you are not here to play,
I will sit here with all your things, and
just take it day by day
I share with others of how your eyes filled
with joy every time we sat to play on the
floor and I explain the little ways you made
these play times a lasting memory in my mind
So for now I will sit here alone and play on the
floor with all your things, until you return
to join me on the floor, to enjoy your things
NOT A STRANGER.
You're not a stranger
Little One, Just myself a memory ago.
imaptience,romping ahead of the years
counting my inches on a
Don't rush along, greet
each morn with inquisitive air.
Watch closely 'til the
darkling view bids your lips to sing
a song of
You're steps may baulk
at the meanings of Life.
You must seek to solve,
keep trying, asking, never stop.
Other avenues may
forbid and frighten.
But only 'til you touch
Just reach out.
Although your fingers may tremble,
Reach out and touch!
See! They're not cold,
nor do they burn.
Tho' fear and hate walk
their grip isn't
Your touch will break
And if you stumble, as
you sometimes must:
Here! Take my hand! My
strength's enough for two
and I will firmly hold
your hand 'til your journey ends.
Sometime i wonder,
Is loving you and living without you is worth,
Or loving you and living with you... would be too good to be real!
Sometime I wish,
You were here,
Just to give me a hug.
And say 'LOVE YOU.'
And 'MISS YOU.'
Just the way you used to!
Sometimes I yearn,
For that cheeky smile,
especially when am bored,tired
Feeling that emptiness within.
Needing you beside me to reassure me everything wanna be fine!
It hard to tell if Sometimes I can say
'Yes, it long time forgotten now!
Wish that day would come soon.
Ask me about One day,
I haven't thought about you.
Wished to be able to talk to you.
Wondered what you are doing now!
Sometime I Pray
To be able to get you out of my mind.
To forget you completely,
The things were shared, the dream we shared and the way you cared.
Sometimes I Ask Myself
ARE YOU HAPPY OUT THERE?
AM I HAPPY IN HERE?
COULD WE JUST BE HAPPY TOGETHER?
Baby you look at me with so much care,
You make me speechless so I just look back and stare,
My love for you gets stronger everyday,
I could stay in your arms forever this way,
I love playing with your hair,
And the way we hold hands when we walk at the fair,
When we talk I feel so free,
To be open, myself, just be me,
Our hands always seem to find one another,
It’s so cute the way we cuddle with one another,
I love being with you,
Don’t know what to say, do, make me have no clue,
And I know when the days over and you have to leave,
I know for a fact something I have achieved,
That is, making my love for you so much greater,
And then I wish you could have stayed later,
But after my baby has left, has gone,
I can still feel, my true one and only, for so very long
-- Devesh Sharma
This is a short poem depicting a lover's melancholy...
On a crowded train/bus
I see her here and there
For the past seven years
She has been
A living memory
While travelling on the 11B
I smelled her perfume
A week before
While on the 9am fast
I saw her favorite tank top
Gracing another's bosom
It happens all the time
And yet I am sane
And not dead
Like I thought I would be
But I live on
Like an obstinate cactus plant
Even when she is gone someplace
That mortal feet can't reach.
Love is not only a word it’s a feeling that is true.
Love is a feeling to have for someone that you love and someone that means a
lot to you.
Love is not only a feeling it’s a feeling of true.
Love is a word that explains how you feel for that person.
Love is a word, a feeling, and a motion and it is something that is deeply and
Most of all love is a deep feeling to have for someone and to mean it when you
say it to someone you love.
Blank page, blank love
Strange for a black heart to be so damned blank.
Blanc in French...or mute and empty,
At least, for me or my fantasies.
White heart, black skin:
Great designs and desires in too small, too harsh feelings.
No room for me or my fantasies,
Too much work or too much play
Too much things hidden anyway.
I can't stop thinking about you; I even see you in my dreams
You're there every time I turn around; At least that's the way it seems
You're all I've ever wanted; My everything and more
There's no one else for me; It's you that I adore
You've touched my heart in so many ways; Made my whole life seem worthwhile
On the days I feel so alone; I just close my eyes and I see you smile
When somewhere life breaks like a pane of glass
You're always there to let me know how much you care
You wrap your arms around me and wipe away my tears
You tell me that you love me; Taking away my fears
You've brought me so much happiness; A joy I've never known
Though you can't be here right now, I know, with you, I'm never alone
I carry your smile in my heart to brighten my every day
I hear your voice inside my head; "I love you, Babygirl" you
I somehow feel you touch me; Though you're miles away
Its as if you're somehow reassuring me That you'll always
I hope you know how much i love you; Just how much I care
Only with you; My life I will share
Together Forever; You and Me
Best friends and lovers; For all eternity
S. R. W.
Jenny Lynn Hail
Surely wishing you were here next to me
Taking your heart with mine, forever.
Enduring pain when I must leave you behind
Victory is sweet, because I Love YOU!
Every tear I shed is all 4 you, for love.
New love so deep, so strong, so and pure.
Running to your side as soon as I can
Always loving you till the end of time
Yearning to be in your arms, at last
Waiting impatiently for you to come home
Excited to be your wife for life
Never to leave your side again
Time is endless when we are together
Zapped by a love I have never known, your love.
why do we talk, it always ends in a fight
why even look at you when I hold back with all my might
why should I let you get the better of me
why not just allow myself to be free
I ask myself day after day
why do I call whenever I’m bored
why do I answer, oh please help me Lord
why do I worry when I really don’t care
why are we together when we aren’t always a pair
and everyday it’s all the same
why do I love your cute little smile
why do I laugh everything I see your file
why do I cry at the thought of not being with you
why do I know you feel the same way too
though we have our problems I know,
that without you I wouldn’t be whole.
Father of Mine
You have a heart filled with hate
And your eyes are wide with fear
You want to be a different person
But the pain tears through you
To the point of no control
You wear a mask made by the devil
But you are disguised and blinded
by the toxins that you inhale
You have separated yourself
to the point of bitter coldness
You wore off you welcome in my life
and now I want you out.
You covered my eyes and you covered my ears
from the hate that surrounded our house.
You pushed us out of your life and shut the doors behind you
Our life was sad and it was if you didn’t even care.
Larger Than Life
Hold to your dreams
Beware of those that come from behind to pull your head back and snatch them
right out of your mouth
Hide them under your tongue when you hear their footsteps approaching
They come brimming with discouragement
Telling you what you cannot do
What you will not like
Like the monster that chases until you stumble and fall
in the reality of a dream
so i dream
clouds of life obscure the vision
that i long for
blood flows from the portholes
of life thats everlasting
souls cry put to an empty god
what! have i done is there more
to this mortal life?
is it real? or is it a dream
are the morning birds calling to me
or is it a memory
gone is the sun of yesteryear
tears fall from an empty eye
and voices call to an empty hall
goodbye to the world we've know'n
say hello to the new sun
that rises for the few
its been awhile since we talked,
been awhile since we,
last looked at each other
its been a while since that day
the day you found out,
what i was doing behind your back,
its been awhile,
since i apologized
but its over now,
since you've been gone,
there's nothing to live for,
since you've been gone,
i lay in my bed,
thinking of why i screwed up
why i had to cheat
but no reason is just,
your heart was torn,
and your feelings distraught,
i know it was wrong,
what i did was not right,
but here i am,
fighting my tears,
looking for escape,
the escape from pain,
trying to regain the peace i felt,
when i was with you,
the love i once had,
i had no right
so i write,
one more chance is all i want.
