Love Rant

There is something that has been getting to me,

Far more than what most think,

It’s this misconception of a common belief,

That a man should always chase the woman or she will leave,

But this concept is too one-sided for me,

If I take a step forward and you continue to step away from me,

How could this ever be how love is found; don’t you see,

If I am trying to get you closer to me,

Then why do you continue to walk away from me,

If my love and getting to know me is what you really seek,

Why do I always have to be the one to respond first,

Then criticized by others for feeling love’s thirst,

You say love is what you want, then why me, the man, the only one at work,

Then you wonder why from exhaustion my love takes a ride in a watered down Hurst,

Then I see you ask why can’t you find a good man,

Well you did, but you just didn’t understand,

That a relationship takes more than a chase and me saying, well I ran,

Love is a cross country event and it takes a much better plan,

Cause we are all sprinters, but you are always a step ahead of me,

I’m not asking you to slow down; I’m saying turn towards me,

Cause no journey is too long if we will just meet in the middle,

After all, that is the only answer to true love’s riddle,

“How can a person find love?”

Alone the fact is they can’t,

Because it takes two to rise above,

This is love’s truth and the end of my rant.

IF I DIE TONIGHT

IF I DIE TONIGHT

If I die tonight what would I want you to know,
If I lost my life tonight where would you go,
If the darkness came for me where would my light show,
Blood of my veins but does my love flow,
I guess I want you to know my heart is tied to yours,
After you it closed all doors,
You got the ceiling and I need no floors,
It is for you alone I got no more one mores,
If the life left me there is no need to stay,
I would never to ask you to live that way,
But Just once you know what I have to hear you say,
I will look down and trust I know baybay,
So if the darkness takes me just know the light will shine,
And for an eternity only you will be mine,
I will wait for you on the other side,
But live life just save that little part of you that we said was mine,
And trust my love will flow with the rain,
That’s just me trying to wash away your pain,
So break away from it because I leave no chains,
God will send another to take those reigns,
So If I die tonight I want you to know I did not go,
So let the light show and go with the flow,
Because My Love will watch over you Blow for Blow,
And God will take you and the right way he will Show.

Cancers of Stress

It was settling, calming, coming to a stand still,

Life was getting easy, should have known too surreal,

Thunder came, and down came a shudder and rain,

A chill ran down the spine, and the world brought on the pain,

A family broken by drugs and a conqueror of greed,

A busted love, A busted heart, one defeated sent to knees,

Screaming in vain, filled with blame, praying for a better change,

Going insane, feeling drained, wasted youth oh what a shame,

How can the progress in this house made of stone,

Burdens of family stressed, how can they move this along,

Without courage and strength, are they destined to fail,

Surrounded by screams and chants of words like “go to hell”,

Outside hope, they see as their only way to prevail,

But the only contact anymore is via text, call, and voice-mail,

Because stranded in a search for a better life, is their hope,

All wishing it would come faster but life just says nope,

But their hope, as fast as he can, continues,

Till the day he’s able to come back to the rescue,

So they can move on to the best of life’s happiness,

But until then this family suffers in life’s cancers of stress.

I Want To Hold Your Hand (While I Sleep)

The otter is a cute and curious creature. But best of all it is a badass swimmer and the fact that they hold hands is just awsume lol.

I Don't Get It

As if sea otters weren’t adorable enough, it turns out they hold hands while they sleep.  According to Wikipedia, “sea otters tend to rest together in single-sex groups called rafts. A raft typically contains 10 to 100 animals, with male rafts being larger than female ones. The largest raft ever seen contained over 2000 sea otters.”  I just got a cavity.  Too sweet.

How is that even possible?  I don’t mean the buoyancy or the fact that they have no blubber, and their thick fur keeps them warm.  What I mean is–how can anyone sleep touching someone else?  I know dog owners who let their dogs sleep not only in their bedroom (where the humans go), but on or even IN their beds.  I’m sure some of you needy people who like animals better than people do this, don’t you?  And you don’t think about how their little paws walk around in…

It Found Me

I can feel the love around me,

In fact it’s quite astounding,

It’s a rhythm of the heart Pounding,

Full of close ties it’s bound me,

A flood of happiness drowns me,

Wings of trust won’t let’em ground me,

But friends till the end surround me,

Not to serious we out here clowning,

But a community of love call it towning,

The fact of the matter is its truly resounding,

If falling it is in the allowing,

Then like basketball we will be rebounding,

Got to love the love cause its louding,

Turning it up so join the crowding,

And accept it smiling and proudly,

Because it’s not in the finding but in the knowing it found me.
