ďDo you believe in love at 1st site?
By: Dannielle Wright
 
Do you believe in love at 1st site
It all started when I was flying a kite I know that when I first saw him. that he was very special He had brown hair and green eyes he looked like a very nice guy
then I saw him look at me
at that moment my kite got stuck in a tree He ran over to help me pull it out as we were pulling we fell about I fell right on top of him and he tolled me his name is tim
Then it hit me that I do believe in love at 1st site. Because that day is when we got together. All cause of the kite it was love at 1st site,
I didn't believe it until now I saw the light Now Iím in
white walking down the aisle with a bouquet of flowers as he took my hand in his as I devoured and at this very moment said ďI doĒ
Now do you believe in love at 1st site, ďdo.Ē

Girls and Boys
Liza

Kissing is a habit
Sex is a game
Guys get all the pleasure
Girls get all the pain
The guys says he loves her
The girl believes it's true
But when her belly starts to swell
He says the hell with you
10 minutes of pleasure
9 months of pain
3 days in the hospital
Baby born without a name
The baby's a bastard
The mom's a whore
This all wouldn't have happened
If the condom wouldn't have torn

Night
walkerryan
Evening sets in
The darker of the kin
The birds no longer sing
The wind has lost its ring
All is calm in the night
Making everything feel so right
The moon shines silver rather then gold
They are made of a different mold
Meant to make love in the night
Lay down the arms and give up the fight
The love of a woman is best for the soul
It can mend and fill any hole
Women are beauty women are pure
For this war full world they are the cure
Make love all night
Save a soul tonight

I LOVE YOU
BY  Janet Denise Thurston
 
The attraction lies
within our eyes
we find in each other
what some wonder
that love would be
we see in each other
peace unknown and true
we do
what we feel
therefore it's real
we unconcealed pride
that most use to hide
their true feelings
our dealings
are sincere and true
that's why I'm not afraid
to say
I Love You!

"sen seni seviourum"
mariusnybo
- I once saw a girl with perfect brown eyes, It wasn't just the size but the color of her soul reflected so hard that my heart almost stopped beating. I wanted a second meeting, I stopped eating for days cause the unforgettable face always was on my mind, I wonder why my heart was so kind...Her body was like watching a million stars crashing, my mind was just seconds from collapsing. I cant breath, I cant think, I cant see... but still I wonder what i'll would be, words are becoming small and I finding myself hitting the wall.
she smells like a endless smell of roses that none of this earth has smelled before, that I adore.
I suddenly thought is this real? or is it a silly dream...it all seem so clear but why i sent she here. I start too fare, is the end near? will I wake up and see life as it is? I'll never forget her wherever she goes, whatever she does. Cause she is worth dying for, or living without its no doubt I have met my angel on earth...
 
sen seni seviourum means ("I Love You")

FOR EULA
Rene Salta
As rain pours hard through a chilly evening
A lark sings, unmindful of whatís happening
Covered in mist ≠ sky, trees and flowers meet
I chanced upon a lady with a smile so sweet
Upon returning to the land where the sky is low
Heart beats to swiftness with eyes aglow
Anticipation, excitement, fondness, delight
Like a sparkling jewel she came into sight
While chaos rules at the watering hole
Bright stars, she stands tall amidst them all
While I gazed at her like a work of Van Gogh
Her gentle voice drowns noise down below
Sadness sets in as mountains fade from a distance
Still I rejoice the rendezvous on that instance
Though I know not when Iíll see her again
I know, a friend forever she will remain.

                         NEVER HAD LOVE LIKE THIS.
NEVER HAD LOVE LIKE THIS BEFORE.
LOVING YOU MADE ME OPEN UP THE DOOR
OF MY HEART THAT COULDN'T TAKE NO MORE.
YOU BROKE DOWN MY BRICK WALL, AND
PICKED ME UP WHEN I STARTED TO
FALL.
ALL YOUR LOVE FOR ME I NEEDED NO MORE,
CAUSE I NEVER HAD LOVE LIKE THIS BEFORE.
FINALLY HAPPINESS HAS COME TO ME
YOUR WARM SMILE AND TOUCHES, CAPTURES ME
AND WHEN WE COME TOGETHER IN ECSTASY
OUR NIGHT COMPLETES OUR SENSUALITY.
LOVING YOU, I APPRECIATE YOU MORE
CAUSE I NEVER HAD LOVE LIKE THIS
BEFORE.

love, of art
johnson
I'm playing a lover's part,
Love teach me love's art
If love is as difficult as the say it is
Love! the perfect prize must be perfect bliss
to achieve this
What sinews? what art?

But what i know is this
I will not love you
To bed or wed you
I will love you
to love you

Our Love
[dedicated to K. L., i love you]
- Kirstyn Johnson

I know that this love is real
Because of the feelings I get inside
Itís something Iíve never felt before
And itís nothing I can try to hide
 
I go around telling the world
How much you mean to me
Itís not something that Iím ashamed of
Iím in love, and Iím very proud to be
 
You hold me close to your heart
And take away all my fears
Even when Iím scared and upset
You always wipe away my tears
 
Every time weíre together
Our kisses are so pure and true
If I could be with you everyday, I would
Just spend all my time with you
 
I love it how you hold me
And look directly into my eyes
Everything about you is perfect
And thereís nothing I despise
 
So just in case you were wondering
I would leave you never
I love you with all my heart
And want to be with you forever

Mystery

I swear, I cannot tell,
if the devils in hell
are doing all these things.
 
Or if bright lights above
come down from realms of love
command with angel's wings.

your eyes are in the clouds
caught there in the jacaranda tree
stormy dark bloom shine
all for me, all for me
 
your words are in my neck
caught in my hair, wild like wine
tangled up and free
all mine, all mine

Tell me

Fernanda 
Tell me what to do,
say, think, write,
to make you notice me.
 
Tell me how to act,
walk, talk, move,
to get your attention here.
 
Tell me how I should dress,
dance, sing, be,
to make you love me.
 
Or is there nothing I can do,
since you already love me too.

Emotions
kirsten rice
your tender hand touches my face and i hold my breathe till you kiss me. my knees start to weaken and cold chills go through my body. looking deeper and deeper into each others eyes, i could do it all day long. seining your smile, makes me smile bigger than ever. your finger tips touching my body makes my back curl and smile big. with every tender kiss i know you mean every single one. you don't have to hold so tight because i'm not going anywhere.

Youíre but a leaf:
valerie sherrer
You seek to tell me what I need not know
I try to dismiss it but you never slow
 
You keep persisting with no end in sight
This but leaves me with no simple plight
 
A friend indeed, I dare to call you
When in need I forever stand true
 
In return, nothing is received
For this you have been reprieved
 
But the time has come for you to see
That I stand steady as a tree,
 
You, however, are like the leaf,
The first wind comes and you shake free
 
I mustnít complain though, things could be worse
You are the change and I am the purse.
 
You see, I am the tree standing strong and tall
I continue growing long after you fall
 
You may berate me, but soon you will find
Of all things alive youíre most unkind
 
May I advise you to watch what you say lest,
You drop off and die with the rest.
 
The tree held the leaf as long as it could,
But removed the dead ones, like all nature should.

I HAVE YOU
           by Tia Rhoten
 
           life gets harder day by day
           but i have you there to take me away
           away from my fears, my hurt, my pain
           from you all i have is love to gain
           you give me love even when i don't ask
           no matter my future, present, or past.

I live through my dark existence
only to bask in your closeness
your eyes that shine like sapphires
your smile that brightens even my sad existence
I envy the wind that runs through your hair
that touches your lips
I long to touch you
to hold you in my arms but I cannot
for your heart belongs to another
so, I can only love you from afar
your friendship means more to me
than anything this world provides
but like an angel you touched my heart
in a way that I've never felt before
cause I've never known what love is until this day
I know that we are only friends
but my heart wishes it to be more
so I will still hope and dream
that one day I can feel your lips pressed to mine
to hold you in my arms and say, "I love you"

I am Sorry
Heather Carson
Sitting alone in the corner of a room
Tears and blood now splatting on the floor
Love turned to hate i can bare it no more
Look into your eyes and all i see is pain
Pain from living is all i feel
 
Tore your heart apart now i'm paying
The hate you place inside me now tearing me apart
I don't blame you after what i said
Look into my eyes and all you'll see is regret
You may hate me but i'l never hate you
 
Friends meant we'd never be together
Friends meant we'd tear each other apart
I wish you'd just shout at me
Tell me how much you hate me
I know your still hurtin' and it's all my fault
 
I hurt you once but have felt guilty every day since
When i see you i still feel regret
I'm sorry about what i said i always will be
I'm sorry about all the shit i've put you through
I am sorry.

As i look in to the lonely night i look for someone to fill my sight. Someone to understand my pain and make all the rainy days go away. I hate the pain i fell everyday. I just wish i hade someone to make it go away. After all the pain i have felt i'm my life. I just wish i hade someone to fill my lonely sight

Your ruby lips pillows mine calms my nerves
like the soothing sea that watches us kiss.
As I gaze into those emerald diamonds
that lies upon those bushy cheeks.
Your delicate presence brings springs of flora
I sense magic of velvet roses, and daffodils.
A scarlet rose is planted in the
Depths of my cherry wobbly heart.
Engraved on the azure stem your glisten name,
Towards the end of April time I relax,
Relax as I whisper to the night time star
ďDonít let this be the endĒ

Affirmation
Zana Mason
Listen to your heart,
the truth is always there.
Deep in the darkest recesses,
away from the minds glare.
 
See with the eyes of your soul,
don`t choose to remain so blind.
It takes courage to face yourself,
the you within your mind.
 
Embrace with your body
your emotions while you live.
For everything that you take
be sure that you can give.
 
Believe with your mind
that what I say is true.
The answers lie deep inside
the man that lives in you.
 
Trust in your heart
it only knows what`s true.
Believe in yourself
as I believe in you.

Watch over me
Natasha luciani
Since you have been gone its has come to mind
I think about the things we did all the time
From the vegemite toast
To the morning walks
the midnight feasts
the late night talks
Will you lend me a shoulder when i need to cry
will you lend me a life when i need to die
Although i cant see you
i know your there
I can feel your spirit glide through the air
So goodbye for now it may be
But i know that you will always watch over me

You cheat and lie
it's all very wrong
I can't take it anymore
I don't feel so strong
I think i'm going crazy
my brain's about to blow
everything feels all hazy
you don't even know
I'm sick of all of this
all the yelling and fighting
I don't know what to do
I guess I'll keep writing

I feel like I am a butterfly that has not yet hatched out of its cocoon and yet I feel I am grown and all of lifeís pressure was put right on my back and the whole world is depending on me. It makes it  so difficult for me to just be free. Right now is the time for me too grow up being a kid not anything more and not anything less. So for now I will lay the world aside and just be me.

IT'S YOU
POEM WRITTEN BY ELEANE MURRAY

IT'S YOU WHO I WANT TO BE HOLDING IN MY ARMS AT NIGHT\LETTING YOU KNOW THAT EVERY THING IN LIFE CAN BE RIGHT
 
IT'S YOU WHO I WANNA TELL MY MOST INTIMATE THOUGHTS\YOUR LOVE I'M FIGHTING TO REGAIN AT ALL COST
 
IT'S YOU WHO I WANNA WINE AND DINE WITH\NOT SPENDING UNNECESSARY MONEY JUST SIMPLE THINGS AS GOING ON LONG ROMANTIC ROAD TRIPS\TO HAVE YOU BACK I'LL BE VERY CONTENT
 
IT'S YOU BUT IF YOUR HEART BELONG TO ANOTHER\I KNOW I CAN'T BOTHER YOU ANY FURTHER
 
THE LOVE YOU ONCE HAD FOR ME HAS GONE\AND YES LIFE GOES ON\STILL CRINGE WHEN I HEAR ONE PARTICULAR SONG\ALWAYS ASKING MYSELF WHAT WENT WRONG
 
IF I STILL HAVE A CHANCE WITH YOU BECAUSE MY LOVE FOR YOU CAN'T END\CAN WE TRY TO MAKE IT FIRST AT BEING FRIENDS
 
IT'S YOU WHO MAKE ME EXPRESS MYSELF LIKE THIS\WHEN I LOOK AT YOUR LIPS I'M LIKE WHEW THOSE I DESIRE TO KISS\JUST THE LITTLE THINGS ABOUT YOU I MISS
 
I'VE TRIED TO GIVE MY HEART TO SOMEONE ELSE\I WASN'T FOOLING MY HEART I WAS JUST FOOLING MY SELF
 
I KNOW I CAN LOVE YOU RIGHT JUST LET ME TRY\AS FRIENDS IF WE CAN'T MAKE IT AND YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH SOME ELSE THEN I'LL JUST SAY GOODBYE.

The sky black as night.
When I see your outline.
I know you were looking at me.
But what are you feeling.
When I saw his face smiling with happiness.
As we stared deep into each others eyes.
So deep that everything was moving slowly.
I remember you coming in closer and closer.
When you stopped right in front of me.
My heart beating so hard and fast not knowing what your next move was.
Then not knowing what's going to happen I start to breath deeply.
You opened your mouth and said softly "I love you" and lightly kissed me like I am going to break.
I opened my eyes with a big smile with hope and happiness on my face.
Then at that moment I got hit with 50 things at once.
Water started to fall from my face.
Then I know that I loved him too.

The Heartbreak
Andrea Cambell

             My heart cautious, being hurt continuously,
             love everlasting may never come for me,
             I know now that true love defiantly doesn't
             come easily.
 
             Liking someone but never saying or doing anything,
             then nothing, you never tell him you never even give
             him a letter.
            
            Should you give him one? YES!
            Wait but maybe you shouldn't no you couldn't,
            no you wouldn't D.A.R.E.
            Should you give this guy a chance I mean maybe he might be
            sweet.
           
            Wait but then you think something may come out of this maybe
            a kiss, maybe your most fondest wish.
 
            You do always talk about him, he's so cute and he's
            actually nice compared to the other guys you have met.
 
           When you see him talking to other girls who are much prettier
           than you, you fill up inside with jealousy.
 
           You want to fight for him but you've never fought before,
           not even with that certain someone the one who is always
           BUGGING you.

I'm clutching on to the last bits of my soul
Knowing now that i'll never again be whole
So grace me and let me know just this:
Why did you start it all with a hug or a kiss
When it ended in tears
'Cuz from all these years
I still wonder:
Why did you start it with a hug or a kiss
When it ended it tears
And you always said
We'd share our hopes and fears
But now my biggest hope is that you'll grace me again
And my largest fear is when

Femme Fatal
Ellen Pascoe
Hold your smile fools and thieves
The jury's out but you can't leave
I sit upon the judgment stand
You seal it with your bloody hand
You signed the line and took the pledge
Fixed this bounty on my head
A minor crime if one at all
How hard the fall I can't recall
Who's the captain who's the scribe
Who's the one to take my life
I give no more
Strike again he hits the floor
Is this how you face yourself
Thinking that you're something else!
The lies to hide your broken pride
Foundations of your brotherhood
Number 24609, last I heard he took his life
A wicked witch a cruel defeat
The never last they never keep...
Days of my life
A handsome price you sell your plight
Is it the gun, the rope, the knife
A living hell I made your life
Take a seat the jury's in
Wastin' time I always win
A self-proclaimed Femme Fatal
It's my life that's a living hell

Traces Of Gold - Mckenzie
 
Her blonde hair shimmers in the sun
Falling with such grace about her face.
Her skin sun kissed with golden traces
Her giggles make the day full of fun.
 
Her eyes are a large violet blue
Her lips are pink a kiss she blew
Dimples carved in her cheeks so deep.
This vision of her I think I'll keep.
 
Adorned in lavender and white
Shines like gold in my sight
With grace she saunters towards me
A brilliance so bold I barley can see.
 
This beautiful creature arrives at my feet
Throws her arms around me so very sweet
Looks deep into my eyes and softly speaks
I love you grandma this day has been a treat,
 
These traces of gold are memories for me
This poem will remind her, years later of me.
My Beautiful granddaughter McKenzie.
 
Love Grandma

The sky can be seen by all on planet earth
except for little Kelly Gerth.
Standing behind the moving truck
How did she know it was going to back up?
Crushed by the wheels spinning round and round
Hearing that horrible cries, Oh what a sound.
Now Kelly stands in the door way of her room
Staring at her bed then BOOM!
Thunder strikes scaring her.
She dives under the covers of her nice warm bed
 
But Kelly cannot feel the warmth for Kelly is dead.
Her fists start to tighten
then another big flash lights up the sky.
Kelly screams and runs down the hall
To her mother's room where she knows she can fall
into her mother's arms
In these arm Kelly is safe from harm.
Kelly's mother cries for her at night
Just like she did when her parents used to fight
Kelly cries to as the rain comes down
but on her face is not a frown
Kelly crossed over that rainy, night
Kelly headed for the light.
Now she is in gods arms
Another place where Kelly is safe from harm.
Kelly will see her mother in a couple of years.
It will happen on another rainy night , with a winding road and no light.
Theses conditions prove to be fatal as we say good-bye to Kelly's mother Carol.
May mother and daughter rest in peace. God bless.

I heard some sad news today
I wish you never had to go away
I wish I could have met you before you had to go
I really do love you and
wish you could of stayed
I think that god really wanted
to meet you so he took you away
But why did he do it so soon?
I just had one wish to fulfill
To meet you would have been nice
But I guess that I didnít realize that you
Were so illÖ
I wish I could have been there
To give a hug and kiss
But love from California you will never miss
All I have to remember is that you are in a better place
Heaven is a paradise that you get to see!
I cant wait to meet youÖ
I know I will someday!!
Because I will cross Godís gates too
And when I do I will ask to meet you!!!!

When Morning ComesÖ
Tameka Pero
 
When morning comes the sun gently peeks out of the horizon
A newness is in the air
A beginning of yet another day
A fresh start on the day begins to dawn
All of the earthís creatures began to praise the Lord
The flowers open
The trees stand tall (at attention)
The birds sing melodies of praise
And all the while, the people sleep.Ö
God gently touches those He wishes to awaken to this new day
He also touches those he wishes to call home. 
Each person He touches, but with different assignments
Sometimes, He touches, we rollover
He touches again and we hit the snooze
He touches and finally one of two things happen
We keep sleeping or we wake UP!
When we finally wake up we can discover what God has always wanted for us
It has always been right there, but we did not want to wake up
We can open the blinds and experience the sun,
We can open our hearts to experience Godís son
We can open up ourselves to experience each other
When the morning comes the sun gently peeks out of the horizon
It rises and rises until there is no question of its presence, even on a cloudy day there is no question of the presence of the sun
The morning has dawned
The day is now at hand
Walk in Godís Love and bask in HIS SON.

Raining Stars
Jacquelyn Michelle Farr
Your stars fall from the sky,
like the rain tickling the Earth.
The blades of grass sparkle in the sun,
like my soul when you are near.
The birds, my dreams,
the waves, our love.
Gentle and violent,
like raining, hailing stars.

Hurricane Katrina

Edwin Mathe
Man made bombs Grenade Guns Trigger
These are Man made atoms
Designed to inflict pain Perpetual pain
These are designed to take advantage of another and take power
This i ask whose design Natures design
Masses of water strong winds eroded sunk small and big business
Mother nature turned her blind eye on the people of New Orleans
Sweet turned to sourer night turned to day as day called night
Mother nature gave her violent blow to humanity
Hurricane Katrina you have caused more pain than distructin
Katrina why now? Why Now katrina.

I saw it in her eyes that day now so many years ago
On that day there was nothing we could do
Except stare into each otherís eyes for as long as possible
Not a word to be said
We both knew that the right time wouldn't ever dawn upon us
And we both knew that the love
And the hate
And the sin
And the grace were too strong to overcome
And so we chose to just stare into each otherís eyes
For as long as we possibly could
Knowing that our broken love was stronger than any
Then all of the love that the whole world had to offer us
And so we chose to simply stare into each otherís eyes
For as long as we possibly could
For one last moment in time as we
Walked away from each other forever

Essence of a woman
 
The essence of a woman is a lady who is in-depth.
Her exotic look is appealing.
You're divine.
Delicate like crystal.
Fine like a glass of wine.
Exquisite like a painting.
Soft like mahogany.
Smooth like velvet.
Lovely like a swan.
You're natural like a rose.
Your mind is the essential part to your soul.
The principle of a gentlewoman is her inner self.
Could you be the type of woman who conducts herself well in a good work environment?
Can you handle yourself in any situation?
How would you describe yourself as in being a woman?
Do you present yourself with class?
Having stability is part of being a woman.
Honesty is another quality that she posses.
What do you stand for?
Are you a woman of god?
Do you touch others around you?
Are you confident?
Being mature goes beyond age, it's about her attitude and how she carries herself.
The essence of a woman is in her scent.
In her smile.
In her eyes.
Are you sexy without effort?
I feel that the true essence of a woman is her spirit.
It can only be found in her heart.
See her appeal.
But one can only truly experience her essence.
Do you have what it takes to be the essence of a woman?
                                             Sincerely,
                                              Yours
                                             Derick Bryant

You brought me heart and soul into this world
and raised me as best as you could
Now I travel the hills and valleys of my own life
walking as tall as you always said I would
I witnessed your strength and inner resolve
as you blocked out the worldís loudest noise
and listened to the voice of your very own soul
with integrity, peace and poise
The faraway island of childhood
was such a glorious place
Iím warmly transported back there
every time I envision your face
Your grace of spirit surrounds me
Your love rings pure and true
Of all the treasures Iíve had in my life
Iím eternally grateful for you
But then something happened
And as I stand in this world of nightmares, I hear the voices
Images of death consume my every thought
My mind was constantly subjected
To cruelties beyond imagination
Reality slipping away, becoming harder to hold on to
The nightmare of taking over completely
The voices, the endless voices
Iím all alone but still hear the voices
Then reality once again kicks back in
and I find that even though Iím surrounded with love Iím still alone
The voices make up my mind and it leads me to a place unknown
And as I lay my head upon the pillow the voices are silent
I close my eyes and fall into the most restful sleep Iíve had in ages
Then I see angels all around telling me not to be afraid
They ask if I wanted to stay on earth or go with them
I feel a peace Iíve forgotten existed and choose to got with them
Then I see my grandfather and he leads me to a place where I will receive
My angel wings made of white and a golden halo then he gives me my job Iíll have for eternity
Watching over my loved ones, especially to the number one treasure Iíve ever had
My Mother.

An Angel Among Us
Michael J Sepe
The day you arrived an angel was born
Many will be blessed as you take form
Like a beautiful note in a beautiful song
You are a beautiful woman in which I am fond
I close my eyes and see the smile on your face
I sit and enjoy while my life starts to take place
Your big, beautiful blue eyes gaze on the world
I can always see them and never be disturbed
As a person, you are one that I admire
To remain connected is all that I desire
I will watch you grow as a woman,nurturing you along the way
Waiting and wondering of the words you may say
You radiate an ora that is second to none
To stand beside it is ever so much fun
You are an angel upon us, for this I trust
To know an angel I feel so robust
To know an angel I feel so surreal
I know an angel, this is truly how I feel

MY DREAM WAS LOST IN A STREAM
                    BY: ANARMILY NAZIR

I look at myself in the water to see what has become of me. I have not been the same since my dream was lost in a stream. 
I look in the mirror to find a depressed face staring back at me with those sad looking eyes. I do that ever since my dream was lost in a stream. 
Before my dream was lost for ever more, i dreamt of having power to choose what i choose to be, but now i am very sad because my dream was lost in a stream.

That was back then when my eyes were fogged up and i did not believe, but i never gave up and i found my dream, not in a stream, but in my heart.

don't say i love you
if you don't mean it
don't say you care
if you don't
don't say hi
if you really mean good bye
don't say forever
because it will just make me cry

My first true love
Felix Lugo
I feel like cursing and bursting out words to describe how this situation has killed my heart and I feel like nothing compare to the life I had before. I met you with good intensions, and great respect. I never expected you to be the cause of my death. You left me in ruins. You leaving to another life. You fucking heartless bitch. You lucky you far enough that I canít reach you tonight. The kisses and hugs the late night talks have taken its course. So, I guess you got bored. The promises of us and future plans has erased from your mind for you donít even know what you could have had. I did the impossible just to see you laugh, and feel joy. Why the fuck did you leave me? Oh yeah, you must have found another boy. Fine! Fuck him well and fuck him good. I hope you really enjoy your life with him, but it will never be as good like we had it when we were together.  Iím your first love. The one who showed you how to make love. The first to touch you and kiss your whole body. The one who loved you more than anybody. Those intimate nights we shared wore you out. Now, you are looking for new meat. You think you going to find true love on college campus grounds? You think that someone like me could ever be found? You hurt me so bad I canít take this abuse no more. I created a monster for I taught you about relationships. I guess I was your detour until you finally said ďI donít want you no moreĒ You left me with nothing. After I gave you the world. I made things happen for you. I was even thinking about being the father to your kids. Now, I donít give fuck. How can you do this to me? Tell me over the phone you donít want me anymore. I even took you to the place where you decided we should end. If I would have known that it was going to end this way. I would have taken my life somewhere else where itís much more appreciated.  I guess now you have emancipated yourself from me. Itís not like I kept you under a lock and key. I was conservative to you. I treated you the way a girl should be treated. I warned you about things

I have a monster crush on you,
a super dinosaur!
It sits upon my chest throat
and yet i beg for more.
 
When you're away i miss you so
My heart is full of sand.
 
Yet when you're here my stupid fear
Won't let me touch you're hand.
 
I cannot sleep,I cannot eat,
I'm so wrapped up in you.
My thoughts drift up,Away from words
?And fade into the blue.
 
I know this crush is not your fault;
the dinosaur is mine.
 
Yet if you could, Please rescue me,
And put your arms around me an say you love me,
oh God! That would be good.
 
to you d., my love xxxx

Hey im sorry for the things i've done,

I kno that im the stupid one,
Im sorry for the things i've said,
All this shit has messed your head
 
I hate it when we fight,
Especially when i run away at night,
I've gotta change, i cant act strange
 
You need to kno who i am,
I'll show you soon,
But not tomorrow noon
 
When we fight it just doesnt feel right,
Cos it wont leave me alone,
After that i've basically just shown the person im not,
Then i'd kno why you'd hate me alot,
 
Can i tell you,
Something that is new i actually mean,
I feel bad cos im the one that made you go threw,
Threw all the shit i've given to you,
So here are the 2 words that are for you!

                I love you
                     &
                I'm Sorry

The violin finally quit playing
songs were meant 2 be for you and me
now they are nothing but a distant memory
How could I have been such a fool
Did you ever even love me
 
Standing here so lonely
waiting for you to concede
I stepped outside to see what else there was for me
The view just didn't cure me
 
Wondering why you were so mean to me
I grabbed these tears and headed for security
Mommy will you please finally help me?
I need some charity
your neglect has to stop
 
Premonitions here at last
September has come and passed
My dreams conclude what you have done at last
It's Midnight I wake up gasping for your lap
Thanks anyway Dave but this pain it will pass
Sorry Just want to leave this one in the past
 
Got down on my knees
God told me this anguish won't last
Looked up and saw Grand Pappy
He was smiling ah so vast
I smiled and headed on down the path
 
You taught me that some things were not meant to last
It's ok though I understand what your going through
I didn't touch your face just for a laugh
Sometimes I cry and wonder why you have to hurt inside
Wish I could take the suffering from your past
 
Now I know I can't
Just as you can't change my path
I'll forgive you will you forgive me
or will you just hold the hate inside
 
If you tend to your silence....
This unconditional love for you will never cease
Thank you I know now that I was meant to meet you
Just wish you knew how much you helped me
So I will always be your true friend
Even if you don't understand
 
You made me stronger than ever
set my course to new unchartered waters
My Starboard side now has a ladder
Thank you for your laughter
I hope we meet again in the hereafter

Missing youÖ
Lauren Marks 
I sit alone & think of you
My head is spinning, my heart is blue
And as I fall asleep this night
Wish you were here to hold me tight
 
I miss your touch, I miss your kiss
Your skin beneath my fingertips
The way you'd greet me with a smile
Made everything seem so worthwhile
 
My dreams filled with your warm embrace
The tears are falling down my face
All day I crave your tender kiss
Why does it have to be like this?
 
Scared you'll get hurt? Well, so am I
But how do we know until we try?
Say you want to change, I understand
So let me help you, take my hand
 
Open your heart, let me in
If you push me away, I'll still try & win
One week its yes, the next & its no
My self esteems really taken a blow
 
Why do you do this, changing your mind?
You keep saying you need some more time
But whatís to think about? What did I do?
You know that I'd always be there for you
 
Your eyes, your smile, are etched on my brain
This feelingís driving me insane
Just want you to be happy babe
If not with me then thatís OK
 
Just the pleasure of knowing you
Is enough to stop me feeling too blue
But next time you're lonely, remember its true
Someone, somewhere's always thinking of you.

A TOUGH WEE NUT TO CRACK, A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW...
Gary_A_Hutton
YOUíVE SHOWN ME YOUR OTHER SIDE,
A SIDE I JUST DONíT LIKE.
YOUíLL SAY I FORCED IT OUT OF YOU,
I WAS ALREADY ON MY BIKE.
 
I THOUGHT THE VERY BEST OF YOU.
BUT, LIKE MY LOVE, MY FRIENDSHIP IS NOT NEEDED.
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HELP,
BUT YOU FELL SILENT, EVEN WHEN I PLEADED.
 
NOW THAT IíVE BEEN CAST ASIDE,
MY FRIENDSHIPíS BEEN DISCARDED.
I PONDER WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS,
WILL I NEED TO BE MORE GUARDED?
 
AND IF I CHOOSE TO REMEMBER YOU,
HOW IíM I TO FEEL?
SHOULD I SEE YOU AS ONE I LOVED,
BUT STILL NEEDS TIME TO HEAL?
 
OR DID I REALLY HURT YOU SO,
THAT WE COULD NOT BE ONE?
I DONíT BELIEVE I HAVE DONE WRONG,
SO PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IíVE DONE?
 
I THOUGHT IíD KEEP IN TOUCH,
THAT WE COULD MAKE AMENDS.
IíM SORRY, BUT YOU ARE TO BLAME,
FOR WHY WEíRE LOST AS FRIENDS.
 
YOU WONíT NEED TO CHANGE TOO MUCH,
IN ORDER TO BE LOVED.
IíM SURE THAT IF YOU SORT OUT YOUR PAST,
YOU WOULD FIND A LOVE TO LAST.
 
I COULD GO ON AND SAY MUCH MORE,
TO SHOW YOUR LOVE MEANT MUCH.
BUT YOU ARE SUCH A STUBBORN THING,
IíM AFRAID THAT YOUíVE LOST TOUCH.
 
SO I BID FAREWELL,
I MUST TRY FORGET.
GOODBYE MY DEAR M,
I HOPE YOUíVE NO REGRET.
