    Instruments.

    She’s an excellent violist,
    but, so odd,
    She has harmonium feet.

    A shady friend for torrid days
    Is easier to find
    Than one of higher temperature
    For frigid hour of mind.

    The vane a little to the east
    Scares muslin souls away;
    If broadcloth breasts are firmer
    Than those of organdy,

    Who is to blame? The weaver?
    Ah! the bewildering thread!
    The tapestries of paradise!
    So notelessly are made!
    A Shady Friend For Torrid Days - by Emily Dickinson

    The reach of love extends so far and deep, like roots burried deep beneath the soiled tree

    He was a big man, says the size of his shoes
    on a pile of broken dishes by the house;
    a tall man too, says the length of the bed
    in an upstairs room; and a good, God-fearing man,
    says the Bible with a broken back
    on the floor below the window, dusty with sun;
    but not a man for farming, say the fields
    cluttered with boulders and the leaky barn.

    A woman lived with him, says the bedroom wall
    papered with lilacs and the kitchen shelves
    covered with oilcloth, and they had a child,
    says the sandbox made from a tractor tire.
    Money was scarce, say the jars of plum preserves
    and canned tomatoes sealed in the cellar hole.
    And the winters cold, say the rags in the window frames.
    It was lonely here, says the narrow country road.

    Something went wrong, says the empty house
    in the weed-choked yard. Stones in the fields
    say he was not a farmer; the still-sealed jars
    in the cellar say she left in a nervous haste.
    And the child? Its toys are strewn in the yard
    like branches after a storm—a rubber cow,
    a rusty tractor with a broken plow,
    a doll in overalls. Something went wrong, they say.

    A poem I wrote years ago:

    Love..
    is fast and slow, can`t explain it with it`s many changes/
    is it that far from my reach that I can`t attain it?/
    Don`t feel I`ve felt true love, mainly the lustful urges from below/
    Of course I cared alot for women, but that`s as far as it goes/
    not to hurt them, or exploit them, though good women are few/
    but one I`d share my life with? that`s somethin` new/
    maybe I`m afraid to gamble with love.. never was good with casinos/
    playin` against cupid, instead of love arrows he got sharp needles/
    or maybe that`s my imagination, maybe love has abandoned me/
    my life`s thrown in the lotto pool to be picked randomly?/
    If that`s the case it would take forever../
    thought I knew love, but there`s many mirages, where people thirst for love in deserts/
    Look deep in my soul, ask lord for companionship/
    Findin` a part to play in the world but he denies me a manuscript/
    so I go impromptu..and love hasn`t given me luck/
    Tryin` to find it in a farm with chickenheads, swines, and ducks/
    I need more than just the physical, I want to stimulate my mental/
    Don`t want the superficial or trade women out like a movie rental/
    I wanna classic..emmy award winning, nominated for an Oscar/
    3 disc collectible, with special features in the roster/
    pick at my favorite scenes, I can look back at times and rewind/
    reminisce how my love for this women would intertwine/
    with my soul that stimulates me on a higher spirtitual level/
    so high, I can`t hear any whispers comin` from the Devil/
    Maybe I`ve overlooked love, cause I`ve been runnin` so fast/
    left things behind, didn`t check what I already had/
    Or to see and take time and truly open up myself/
    enjoy whoever I`m with, whether I`ll be hurt only time will tell/
    I might find or never find that women who will comfort me/
    So I take slow steps, in that love will catch up and come to me/

    my upturned
    hand waits

    for the bird
    who carries
    a special song

    to land.

    Foot Sole.

    Massaging my foot soles,
    They are rank, tender and juvenile
    like You, unwashed and lovely.

    While you weren't here
    I cried every night
    A million tears fell
    Still my heart wasn't right

    While you weren't here
    I did what I could
    Hoping against hope
    My decisions were good

    While you weren't here
    I gained some in age
    Things just went on
    And life turned a page

    While you weren't here
    I just tried to go on
    Knowing what didn't kill me
    Would only make me strong

    While you weren't here
    A whole lot got changed
    My life became different
    My world rearranged

    While you weren't here
    I had to learn to be alone
    To stand on my two feet
    To make my own home

    So that's where I am now
    At this stage of my life
    Still scared and alone
    Still coping with strife

    And oh how I wish that
    Things could be different
    That I could go back
    To a time in the past

    To a time before
    You weren't here

    and if I say

    I'd take a star,
    and throw it
    at your feet

    would you
    believe

    me? you are
    worth the death
    of a thousand

    constellations.
    the spark in your
    eyes is enough

    to light the
    innermost corners
    of this hollowed
    heart.

    Fanned.

    First time I saw you
    My eyes, my heart were set afire
    Your eyes fanned those flames.

    The true meaning of understanding is when you learn to give, receive and lose love.. only then will you see things for what they are

    Take my hand and lead the way,
    Pour out all your deeper thoughts,
    Let your soft voice whisper swiftly into my ear,
    All these lovely things I want to hear.

    Through Thick And Thin -Annie hall
    I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive,
    I could be in a car crash, and still be alive.
    The clouds could fall out of the sky,
    The oceans could disappear, and all turn dry.

    These things in life are all bad I know,
    but there's far worse things,
    just thought you should know.

    Life would not be the same without someone like you,
    You're there when I need you to help me through.
    Through the good times and through the bad,
    Be them happy, or be them sad.

    I don't have to be with you, to know you're there,
    We don't have to see each other, to know that we care.
    We could be apart for years upon end,
    and still remain the best of friends.

    Life goes on, and people change,
    And through it all, our friendship shall remain the same.
    That's such as a life, and how things come to be.
    Just thought you should know,
    HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME.
