OPEN MIC ENCORE I
June 6, 2004

 
It's my second time talking to this girl name Beverly
her voice sound so lovely
and yet she is so funny,
I never seen or meant this girl
but I can imagine she is like a pearl
[IMAGINING] That just drop down from the sky and onto my lap,
her butt was starting to clap and flap....LOL  [End of IMAGINE]
*wonder* if I could get to know her more
*NAHhHh...* She will keep pushing me to the shore,
she sounds like a pretty nice chick
So I ask her if she want my flick...
And we ended up talking about sex
so I was thinking of making her moan like T-Rex...LoL
That night she told me she is studying about biology
and yet the only thing was on my mine was sexology,
We shared a lot of infomation
It was such a DICtation
I can't resist this temptation
so once again I got out my lotion
get my hands into motion...
and she told me about her love "POTION",
Damnnnn, is this girl a nine tail fox?
Or im just breathing in too much gox?
I dont know...but it sure is fuccen good
'cuz it seem like we're in the mood...
I wonder how long i'm going to last
'cuz... I think she is going to fast
should of told her to slow down
well..., it's IiGhT, I'm enjoying the sounds
Even though my wrist is starting to get weary,
she moan so sexy, just like my dream fairy
I got to admit,
So far she meant my discript
But yet, again I dont think this chick want to get to know me
Even though I know her purdy name is Beverly
F**K it all I can say is that she is one CUTE MiSs
Let see if she talk to me after dis....

Starlight Lady

Ric Mohri
Starlight lady, your luminescence shines through,
From your eyes warming my soul, making it anew.
Your touch, your smile, ivory innocence mixed with experience,
Golden waves dancing around me, covering my sight.
 
Melodies coursing from within you,
Soothing my mind and my heart as I listen to them share.
Reassuring me, winning me, calling me there,
To the place you wish to share with me, your inner sanctum.
 
I am at home there, at peace, molded to you,
Knowing you, holding you, cherishing you, desiring you.
A permanent high like none that I have ever had,
Never a moment of dullness, never worried or sad.
 
Your love embracing my heart in an affectionate dance,
Your lead never a mistake, never left to chance.
Careful with your words, lest you may jinx this special bond,
As the master knits our moments and minutes together.
 
How can this come to such a pace so expediently in this way,
That we could long for each other, experience each other.
Never growing tired or distant, only ever closer,
Knowing where this tango, this special two step, will lead.

Anniversary Poem
Aschonta Turner
I canít believe four years have passed,
Through thick and thin our love has last.
We fought to stay together,
And together we shall remain,
For you are the king of my heartís domain.
Loving you is something that Iíll never regret,
I smile as I reminisce about the day that we met.
Your demeanor and attitude is what got me,
The first kiss is what made me weak in the knees.
My feelings for you has grown with no limits,
No judgments, expectations, or gimmicks.
Just pure unconditional love is all we need,
To made this love continually grow and succeed.
Even though you are away right now,
Iíll climb any mountain,
Swim any sea,
Just to make sure that you are returned home to me safely.
So, this is a little something
To you from me,
Wishing you Happy Anniversary!!

These dreams
terry rogers
I was volunteering
When I was done I went to rest
On the way I saw you
After 5 years you were there
 We talked like the first time we met
Before I could tell you
I awoke,
If it wasnít meant to be
Why am I hunted with these dreams

Together
By: Sarah L. Peterson
 
As the days have past
As the months have faded
As the year have gone
And as we have grown older
 
With only you I can see our future
With only you I can see us growing old
I can see us when were 30, 60
And even when were 80
 
But mostly,
Together we can achieve
Together we can succeed
Together we can live a life,
Fulfilled with many dreams

HIS EYES
By Gina White
 
Eyes that gaze at you from behind
Eyes that are truly undefined
Eyes that whisper while you sleep
Eyes that push you towards that leap
Eyes that love and care for you soul
Eyes that look at you as a whole
Eyes that complete a perfect life
Eyes that stab you like a knife
Eyes that fly away like a dove
Eyes that you know you'll never love

Love Song
Clarence Sy
I often think of thee
Thee of raven hair, the lady fair;
Where art thou, O blessing from heaven?
Thy words and thought I'd love to listen.
 
I often remember thee,
Thee of charming and humble grace;
Upon me I can see thee smiling,
Then the warmth of sun I feel, shining.
 
I often long for thee,
Thy cherry lips, gentle fingertips;
They thrill me in this kind of fashion:
Their touch enflames my heart with passion.
 
Where have thou gone, O sweet love?
Often my breath it takes and my heart aches;
Searching for thee, I oft feel the cold,
For my soul, 'tis only thee who hold.

One summer in an isle of sand

Karen Wedley
I walk through the park, not sure
whether its winter or a memory, cold
that is chapping my cheeks.
 
The scene blurs, ensconced
in thought and frosted blades of grass
crunched underfoot.
 
Last Summer, I idled in the cafe
with a cafe -au lait, 
a sun kissed poet
playing origami with the menu.
thinking about what it really meant
to be silent,
and the strength of words that bind to verse
metaphors that tumble like a waterfall
and the concept of love.
 
I wanted to stand on my table
romance  aloud about first loves and moments,
lost like a grain of a sand.
 
and how I feared that If I loved,
a fierce sun would famine my wordsó
 
I wince at the memory
of the shadows tracing my steps,
of the single empty cup
savouring the last traces of java.
 
and the orange August moon
under which I sat, alone

I So Grow Misty
Edwin Flores
The move from Missouri playing Cowboys and Indians
a friend once I had now both  gone my dominion
is now in a state where brotherly love
is far from the truth,  empty the thought of
 
My father a Sergeant twenty years of his life
the Army his calling, unfaithful to wife
where mother did hold her own and all six
children, broken heart, my wish I could fix
 
A bike once I had for  twenty four hours
purchased by the same man I called father,  I cowered
For abuse was a ritual with the back of  his hand
demonstrated on a boy,  treated more like a man
 
My gandmother whose wisdom would speak her own mind
no matter the person, their faults she would find
and in a split second you'd soon come to know
feisty and aged woman with words she would sow
a meaning to life and trait she acquired
opinions her own some wrong , some admired
 
Forty nine and still counting no longer a child
mood swings, midlife crisis? sentiment for awhile
has embedded in heart, the one that writes now
for years laying dormant in a soul asking how
 
I so grow misty, memories which  keep hold
episodes, one's childhood, in corazon somewhat old

As I stand over his crib
And gaze at his awe-inspiring face,
I set eyes on my innocent child
Who deserves better than this place.
This place where good, honest people
Are filled with bitterness, and with hate.
I set eyes on my innocent child
And think...
Is this his fate?
I whisper ĎI love you,í
Hoping heíll not awake;
Hoping heíll stay my innocent child forever
Please God-  for his sake.
He quietly stirs
And lets out a sigh.
He sleeps like a baby
As the world slowly drifts by.
Not a care in the world,
No problems at hand,
Not a burden to bear,
No abrasive demands.
As years pass by
And memories are made,
My innocent child will become a man
And his innocence will fade....

i know i'm in love,
when everyone stares,
i know i'm in love,
because i just don't care,
i know i'm in love,
when i walk extra slow,
i know i'm in love,
and you know,
that i'm in love,
don't you?

Barely At Night
Ali Al-Majnoni  2004
Barely at night,when eyes are surely shut,
And so are the doors,
Stand by your window, and listen to what
Moon is telling shores.
 
Wide open your eyes, and stare at the sky
That golden stars spot.
Look at the place where sea is running high,
And dark walks on foot.
 
Pace to your orchard, and among the gloom,
Sniff sweet-smelled flowers
That the gentle breeze has spread their perfume
In the late night hours.
 
Barely at night, if my heart lies a-sleep,
Come to me, a guest,
Sweeten my dream, and before the dayís peep,
Let your touch off my breast.

I missed you so much today
I wished I spent more time with you yesterday
Instead of staying out all day and late last night
I should have been home holding you tight
Days go by so quickly when we are together
I want to be with you forever
Have a family together
Grow old together
Go to heaven together
I care very much about Slim
With every part of my body and every limb

In my dreams i see your face,
My tears will quietly run.
Why did you have to go away?
Your life had just begun.
 
Your silent cry is haunting,
Each memory is the same.
This picture painted in my mind,
Just causes grief and pain.
 
But i think of all the times,
You were standing there with me.
You deserve a place, free of pain,
It's where you're meant to be.
 
Now heaven's gained an angel,
And my heart is filled with love.
With me down here on God's green earth,
And you far up above.
 
There doesn't go a minute,
I don't miss that smiling face.
A painted celestial picture,
My angel up in space.

For Danielle (my child),
Her voice is lyrical and it makes my heart leap. Her face is beautiful and there is no other love. The seasons of my life turn over gracefully like the coloring of a leaf, The seasons of my life ripens in the spring of her young love. There will always be tomorrow when I seek her dreams, and reap her glad laughter. I shall plant roots and watch her soar away from me, because that's the way it's supposed to be. God speed my child. !

Holding On.
Kayla  Mitton
I call to you once more, knowing you do not listen.
I wonder if you even know who, or where I am.
Then I remember that you know me,
but that does not mean that you understand.
Canít you see that I only want a perfect life for you,
that Iím only showing you my love?
Yet you curse and revile me, as though
you donít even know me.
You even tried to give me
to death,
but I won.
I love you with my entire heart,
even more than the world,
because you are the world to me.
Even as you push me away,
to be accepted by the world,
I hold you closer.
I will never let go.

i get inside your mind
and make you get lost in your thoughts
of us together
your hands on my arms
my legs my back
 
i get inside your bed
and make you get lost in the sheets
your lips on my skin
the energy we make
the sweat drips down
 
i get inside your car
and make you lost on the road
the chaos we make
the fog on the windows
the radio on
 
i get inside your heart
and make you get lost in the beats
the thump of our bodies
the rushing blood
the pain i will cause you

Ebony hair
(tri tran)luoikiemvotoi
Each bundle of braided hair,
An empty lane without dirt and mud
To the root of his scalp,
Meeting his ebony skin
Where each one firmly pinned
Into the fleshy surface of the head.
 
Dark auburn in sunlight,
Shiny like a twirling disk in motion,
Reflecting its natural color
Upon his dark face...never lost its African curl;
His bundle of braided hair,
Inherited and treasured as something of a rare.

PASSION
          Mrs.E.P.Abraham
 
  There is one
 Whom I long for
  But found none
 Besides therefore
  I become one
     Before
 Iím left with none
   Whom I long for
 
   There is one
 Whom I long for.
     But none
 Found I was alone , for
   The one was not none
    but unseen.

Does he love me?
Tiarna
He does it so often, I don't think that he's aware.
Of all the pain he causes me, it's like he doesn't care.
I don't know why i love him, the reason i'm yet to find.
I think about it all the time, I start to lose my mind.
 
Im not sure if he loves me back, he never lets it show.
The way he feels deep inside, He never lets me know.
He tells me that he loves me, Im sure that it's a lie.
Just the thought of losing him, all i seem to do is cry.
 
Maybe Im not good enough, or he just wants someone new.
Maybe its that his friends don't like me, I wouldn't have a clue.
If only i knew what went wrong, It started out just fine.
Maybe he's going to call it quits, If only we had more time.
 
But time we spend together, seems to go so quick.
Just thinking of the time we part, leaves me feeling sick.
I want to share my life with him, althought right now now i may be sad.
I just keep thinking of the special times, that we once had.

I try to find the reasons
To keep you close to me,
But I keep finding these demons
That wonít just let me be
 
If I could find the answer
An answer I want to hear,
But I know I want you nearer
And that is what I fear
 
So I try and keep my distance
But I know it wonít be long,
Because I have no resistance
And everything wonít be so wrong
 
But if you go your way and I go mine
The only barrier between us is time

 *Love and I*
Kristen
my love and i like to stare
into the sky from the river
on his car hand in hand
making plans about tomorrow
my love and i drive too fast
we sleep too much for our own good
in one another's arms for hours
filling time with nothing
my love and i write love songs
about our eyes and smiles
we giggle madly in the night
remembering good times
my love and i love do dance
in the rain at midnight
on the road that i still walk
without my love by my side
i did cry about my love and i
when my love did not come home
but i still watch those starry skies
by the water all alone

Looking into the sudsy water
Hearing the drip, drip of the faucet
Feeling the bubbles caress your skin
 
Yearning for serenity you thinkÖ
What will happen if I stay
What will happen if I go
 
Your wrinkling fingers slowly run past your face
Holding your hair letting the rest of yourself go
 
The suds soon take effect on your nostrils
It hurts like no word can describe the pain
Nor the joy
Youíll soon find the answers to your questions
 
As your body fights for air
As you retain yourself
Fog rolls in
Then everythingÖturns
 
Youíre soon forgetting everything
What youíre doing
Why
Even who you are
Till everything goes blackÖ

My Little Angel
Yvette Bautista
I already named you in my mind I recall
After somebody who gave another a fall.
 
A wonderful being who's love as big as God
The same God who created the big flood.
 
He like the others so full of joy like the spring
Accompanying everyone under his wings.
 
My son, my son how happy and honored I am
To name you after a great one who's like The Lamb.
 
So meek and gentle yet feared by the enemy
Swiftly soaring through the skies with his army.
 
O great Saint, O famous one please protect my son
I entrust him to your care, my little angel ... MIGUEL

           You are the force of the wind, when it gets real windy.
           You are my everything.

SAT. NIGHT/SUN. MORNING
Julio Darrell Lopez

faded memories choke me,
the love for your taste, the taste for your love
the warmth you brought to me as we danced
as we made love to the night when we kissed
and when we laid on an over used bed
with sheets unknown to my skin.
wouldn't guess where they could have been,
all in the same night.
the morning after we kissed a couple more times.
i could sense your innocence
feel your inner child and the women you're becoming.
sadly
it was only for one night and half a morning
happy
i met you and felt your face
in foreign places
unknown to me
to you
to both

He told me that he loved me and that we would never part.
He said to me that our love was like a work of art.
He lives to far away now, almost a hundred miles.
So he took my heart, chopped it up, and left it there in piles.
We are done, it is over, there really isn't anything left to say.
Except that maybe, just maybe, we will be together again, someday.

when will this pain go away?
when will these tears dry away?
even though i don't have you today
maybe things happened this way
and with hurt and sorrow i had to pay.
you had me like a dame, so tame
calm, and with the blame.
things weren't right from the start,
cause after 2 weeks, you had a change of heart
why couldn't you tell me i was a game?!
instead of leaving me here with so much pain.
just think about what you could've had
even when you want me back.....!

LOVE
Sara Oliver

Hate is a word
too strong to say
it destroys the lives
of the everyday
it helps to turn
the minds of our young
it destroys everything
and everyone
no one is safe
with hate in their hearts
it reaches out
and takes and a part
only love
can light the way
to keep the world
from the hate
so let the love
shine on through
to keep the world bright
for me and you

Grandpa
Amy
You promised to never leave.
That you would always stay.
But now your in pain;
And day by day you getting farther away.
I know were your going is a better place.
But its not the same with out you here.
I wish we had spent more time together.
We have to make the best of what we have left.
And remember it forever.
But to see you in pain; hurts me inside.
I don't want to show you,
Because I don't want you to cry.
I hope and pray you get better
And that we can have more time together.
But I know sooner or later we will have to say
GOODBYE
I Love You Grandpa!!
I don't want you to die.

Sharon Guilfoyle

Your presence is a high
like I've never felt
Your very essence by my side
makes my entire body melt
what I feel is a feeling I never knew
my thoughts are twisted and falling so deep into you
white and black skin entangled as one
exploding beyond Heaven,stars,and the sun
So beautiful,this love has got me insane
soft black skin on my lips,I could die this way
Your eyes are diamonds,
Forever true
This is paradise
being here with you.

Six months on a winding road
With mirrors on every curve
Reveals a love so brightly shown
What's yet to come in unknown
The hidden road that lies ahead
Only guarantees us to grow
Twenty-six weeks of secrets being unknown
And dumped into a forgotten hole
That has broken our only covering stone
Making the light we share more radiant
With the bonds becoming stronger
I feel my feelings begin to circumvent
One hundred eighty-two days
Of all the things we could be said in a single phrase
And that is "I love you"
How many times have we shared those words?
Not even I could say truly known by few
Is in a phrase I wish I had more moments to say
Love is in my mouth complete by words "I love you"

TANGIBLE SKY
 by Candice Bryant

             I fell from your sky last night
             Hit a few stars on the way down
          Soared through clouds of tangled cotton
            Pulled down sheets of velvet rain

           I touched the moon and called him mine
              He shined his glow upon my face
                 Made me feel alive again
                    To bad he went away

What is there to say to a woman that's broken hearted,
Especially if it's your fault something you started,
In her memory eventually dearly departed,
Seperated from my euphoria am i retarded,
Took it all for granted now i sit here all alone,
She actually left this time and left a broken home,
I call it broken cuz everything she left is broken,
Broken heart broken soul cry so much im choking,
Emotional brake down there goes part of my life,
Get over you i might but your name is like a knife,
Every time i hear it it sinks alittle deeper,
Wonder if u think of me gorgeous my heart's keeper,
Used to look into your eyes see way past the physical,
You was my ritual now im here missing you,
A needle in a haystack exactly what im looking for,
But there's so many options a choice of different doors,
That i must choose this time i can't lose,
Why u have to leave me like this im so confused,
Not even a phone call not even a letter,
Its been a while already i thought i'd be much better,
But i guess the pain it never really goes away,
There's something there to remind you just about each day,
The scent of another woman or the way she walks,
Or just the way she looks at you everytime you talk,
It might sound crazy baby look what you did to me,
You made the heaven's unfold in front of me beautifully,
But left with the color of the skies and the stars,
But left behind the bitter lie's and the scars,
To the sight they invincible but they remain large,
How could i disregard you and let u go so easily,
Never really overstood how much you was pleasing me,
Never knew what i really had 'till it was gone,
Now all i have left is memories and these songs,
A couple pictures here and there but whats the use,
Everytime i look at them it tighten's up the noose,
Apostale was right the pedestal was loose,
And i didn't bother to tighten it up and call a truce,
A fairy tale gone wrong told by mother good,
Help me jesus i suffered another lost,
But i learned from my mistakes negligence was the cost,
So hard to say goodbye although i tried,
In you i still confide till the day i die,
The fall and the rise right before my eyes,
Knowing that i wasn't innocent

YOU MADE ME HAPPY WHEN NO ONE COULD
YOU TREATED ME HOW A GENTLEMAN SHOULD
FOR THE FIRST TIME I FELT LOVED
BESIDES THE LOVE FROM GOD ABOVE
I NEVER KNEW A FRIEND AS SPECIAL AS YOU
THAT IS A LOVE THAT YOU CANNOT UNDO
I WISH EVERYONE ACTED WITH YOUR KINDNESS
BUT EVERYONE LIVES IN MATERIALISTIC BLINDNESS
YOU REALLY HAD NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ME
YOU COULD HAVE WALKED AWAY AND IGNORED ME
BUT YOU LOVED ME ENOUGH TO FIX OUR FRIENDSHIP,AND EVEN IMPROVE IT
SO PROUD OF YOU ,I CAN HARDLY CONTAIN IT
WE'VE CREATED SO MUCH HISTORY
YOU TOOK ME INTO YOUR FAMILY
AND I LOVE THEM ALL
I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE ,I NEVER WANT TO FALL
FROM THE GRACE THEY'VE GIVEN ME
FROM THE SUPPORT OF A FAMILY
SO THANKFUL FOR YOU
A LOVE NO ONE CAN UNDO

My Mom is Like A Rose
By: Cody Bowlds

My mom is like a rose
Her mind growing and changing
Sometimes she is like a thorn in my side
Other times she smells so sweet
Red, pink, white, and purple
Every day changing colors
Her thoughts get bigger and bigger
Until someone cuts her down
Then she starts to grow again
Slowly but definitely growing
But the process starts all over again
Growing and cutting and growing and cutting

STARGAZING
Gina Steffey
 
The setting sun casts an orangish
Glow on your face.
The sky is the color of a mango.
We sit outside.
Just me and my grandpa.
The warm breeze turns cool
With the setting sun.
My bare feet push off the wooden
Boards of the deck
Making my chair rock back and forth
Back and Forth.
Weíve been talking for an hour
Talking about everything
Some things you say, youíll have to
Wait until Iím older to tell.
We listen to the Ping Ping Ping of
Box Elder Bugs
Hitting the aluminum tool shed.
When night falls
And the first stars dot the sky
We sit
In silence
And gaze at the stars.

Am I in love with YOU
chellietox
For years now youíve made me feel
How special I am to you..
I was hesitant about your feelings
Cause I donít want to be hurt.
Later on, you told me you love me
But then, I donít know why
Am I too blind to see?
And too deaf to hear
The sweet words you say and
The kind acts you do.
Years passed now,
There are few things that changed
But still you told me you love me..
Now I donít know what am I feeling now..
I afraid I am beginning to feel something special
Something I have ignored before
I know youíre in love with somebody else
Thatís why I wanted to ignore this feeling
But then I started missing you
Your words, that make me smile when Iím blue
Could it be just that I miss you?
Or I am in love with you?

ANGELA
SHANE NICHOLAS TODD

Tears burn scratches into my face
I've lit the flames and can only watch them burn
Through the pervading crimson which blurs my vision
Seeping slowly, fading fast
 
Your memory lingers, an ominous cloud
Bringing the darkness
Your name is bitter on my tongue
Yet I scream it still
A distraction from the cold
 
The mirror shards reflect my
Shattered self, a shadow on the wall
Constricting lungs spasm
Within grief's grip
 
You've stoned me with your words,
And beat me with your laugh,
Yet your beauty tied the noose
And left me swaying. for all to see
A warning for those in my wake
 
My grip on the blade weakens
I feel reality slip with the knife
And never hear it fall
Just the fading echo in the dark

My Angel
Amanda Williamson
her eyes are the clear blue sky,
her smile brightens up the darkest of days,
her hair is the most radiant of blonde,
her skin is softer than a lambs ear,
her gentle embrace feels so wonderful,
she makes you feel that you are special,
my angel is the sun in my eyes,
I love my angel,
and she loves me

Tears of a Broken Heart
Farrah Walker  
                                    I have cried many tears in my life time. Tears of joy, tears of sorrow tears of regrets and tears of fear for tomorrow. But none flowed so freely as the tears of a broken heart. For as each one fell down the hot cheeks of a downcast face, a crack from within sounded as thin ice would sound if pressure were laid. As the crack spidered across my heart as if it were made of glass the final tear dropped  and yet my heart did not shatter. So up I stood from my knelt potition, unclenched my arms from my stomach and stood, opened my eyes and slowly looked upward. What I beheld was enough to set my soul on fire. The angel of love with eyes filled with my pain. He said unto me, " Cry not for lost love but rejoice for love to come. The gift of love you have given and was not returned, came with a lesson I hope you've learned. The gif of love is selfless and pure and one day it will be returned to you, of that I'm sure. That will be yout salvation, to!
  your broken heart, the cure. Until then open your eyes and see the truth and not the illusion. Then together let your mind and heart come to this conclusion. Never give up hope or the quest for love because He knows your soulmate and He's always watching from above. He's waiting for the righy time and only He knows when, but always know this until then: Let your heart be filled with a love so true, because our Father who Art in Heaven will always love you.

Marriage
By:Cheyenne Tanner
 
Our friendship is like a marriage!
We are loyal,
We trust each other.
 
We love each other and always will!
We have fun together,
We cant talk about any thing.
and love each other unconditionally!

CHRISTMAS
danielle St. Pierre
 
You are like the Christmas season.
Like an ornament on the evergreen
you are beautiful
and unique.
 
Like signing to the Carpenters
Wish you a merry Christmas ,
it is a carol you can listen to 100 times,
and still listen to 100 times more.
 
Like eggnog on a cold winters night,
it is sweet and comforting.
 
Like snuggling by the fire,
you feel protected and content.
 
You are all these things to me, and
my Christmas's wouldn't
be the same
without
you.
