a key

a broken heart awaits its somber fate
the hands of time have made it beat too weak
to find the pulse of love it used to seek
it fades within a burdened soul abate
then hides the key that frees the chains of weight
within a soul where darkness seems to peak
it cannot beat in harmony nor speak 
without the stroke of time to guide its gait

a gallant soul i give this gift to you
break free these chains that weigh this heart of mine
awake from dreams a restless soul to see
a heart that beats an endless pulse anew
and sees again how fate and love entwine
when souls in love through time find ways to be

Of Lion Love

My feline bittersweet awakening
came decked with golden trim of flawless days.
A time it was to frolic and to fling
ourselves in grass, all afternoon to laze.

Together we were fearless, wild and free,
a noble lion and his lioness.
And sadly, neither one of us could see
that passion such as ours would evanesce.

Our error was believing that each kiss
could carry us. . . that love could multiply
or even match July’s exceeding bliss.
By summer’s end, our ardor had run dry.

A lion’s appetite can satiate,
and love - less noble then - will soon abate.

Death is not the End

Death is not the end,
For love goes on
And you will find the evidence
Long after I have gone.
The flowers that we planted
Will blossom without end,
You’ll find me in their beauty
As to their needs you tend.
The books we read together,
The laughter in the pages,
Will continue to give pleasure
To you throughout the ages.
So do not mourn my passing
You are not left alone,
You’ll always find me waiting
In the places we have known.
The bond that grew between us
Will not abate with time,
It will go on for always,
I’m yours and you are mine.

Inevitable Justice

(Your chickens always come home to roost.)

My soul cries out each time I see your face.
My hunger for your love does not abate.
Though I'm chagrined at how my pulses race
desire burns and sucker bites the bait.

You dangle me, a puppet on a chain,
in shame, I dance around you like a flame.
As turmoil reigns, my tears stream down like rain;
raw wounds cut deep while you enjoy the game.

But time will bring your chickens home to roost
and future pill will be a bitter brine.
Perhaps someday your heart will be seduced
as you succumb to Casanova's line.

For then will Lucifer raw fate assign,
and my atonement taste like peace divine?

Never Show Any Fear

There are treacherous things that hide in the dark; Biding time until an innocent walks by. Things that are evil and so very bored; Their existence can’t be denied. Lying in wait to test your faith; They love playing with human minds. Playing on fears and your self doubt; To you they may themselves, be blind. Stand strong and true; showing no fear; It’s a battle that you can win. They’ll surely depart; keep faith in your heart and Their abuse will certainly end. Faith and love are things they hate; use them well and the dark will abate.

Cheater's Chair

A destructive dance indeed,
betwixt the two we bleed.
A bellowing, bloody abate,
this stale, seductive state.

Simple, senseless steeds,
jealous fires feed.
Perjuring petty plights,
demons do delight.

A crimson, cheaters chair,
awful angers air.
No trust, truth or taste,
wallowed wantons waste.

Envious, eager eyes,
rejoicing a wrathful rise.
Coveting, careless couth, 
yesteryear's eager  youth.

Love and Hate

Love is symbolic 
Hate is diabolic 

Love always survives 
Where hate never thrives

Love shall succeed
But hate shall recede 

(Why can't you love me?
Because you hate me!)

Love will always prevail
Your hate will always fail

(Why you hate me so much?
There's no love left in you as such!)

I love you when you hate me
I hate you when you don't love me

(If you can not love me
You should never hate me)

Let's move on with this love and hate
For someday your hate shall retire & abate

(But still I love you so much my dear
Or is it because of my hate, you fear) 

And even if you don't love me
You will never hate me

(I hope)

Short-lived Love

You think you’re the best
Your mind is at rest
You love with trust and zest 
Believing that deep down he feels the same.

But now I’m afraid
His love could abate
It looks like it's too late
Already in his dreams he calls her name.

unborn

the unborn life, has thoughts to dream
would not, have yet learned how to scheme

would not have dreams of love nor hate
rainbows, seem to explain their state

as their liquid life, begins to abate
our past will speak to this unborn's fate

Why? How? What happened? Tears.
Maybe only seconds but, their dreams were here.

Now the world's breath is drawn

Now the world’s breath is drawn
Now sounds mute and colors blush
Now winds abate and darkness flees

Now her eyes
Now my heart
Now everything

Mr. Goodbar

Teacher, teacher what are you doing there? 
You'll never find Mr. Goodbar in that snake pit.
Preoccupation with admiration is making you late.
Stop this insanity, madness abate.
Anticipating a prince but getting a frog
Absence of clarity
Walking into a thick, dense fog.
Trusting and naive
The amphibians deceive
And take your very breath from within you
So much strife, the end of life
And never finding that Mr. Goodbar.

Le Vacance Pretentieuse: Buffet

Arabic labelling on bottles of water,
Room overlooking bricks and mortar,
Men want tips for being your porter,
Getting to food is a pitiless slaughter.

Piles of olives and eggs sit just right,
In bowls coloured an abyss of white,
Odd cuisine makes a peculiar sight,
This is the date I’ll be having tonight.

Cold meat and ham sit on your plate,
Plenty queues; too much time to wait,
Stomach rumbles, hunger won’t abate,
Hurry it’ll all be gone if you arrive late!

ANGELS AROUND

Have you ever noticed the Angels around?
In this world, so many abound.
They influence our lives every day
At home, on the road, at work or play.

They are the people whose spirit is great.
They greet us with smiles, their laughs never abate.
They look like waiters, teachers, or just common folk
But their spirit is contagious and lighten the burden on our yolk.

You can find them in stores, restaurants, shops, and places miles away.
But you'll most likely find them in the place you call home today.
So, look a little closer at that person sitting down
It might just be an angel...one whose always been around.

When words mean nothing

How to abate the loathing
When words mean nothing?

There are moments
In human existence

When
Any resistance
against baleful fate
is futile.

When
One is left
with his thoughts
Forsaken 
by all gods

Astonished immensely
by the world vile
which first
gave him birth
and now
devours him
with mirth

Agonizes he
in every spot
on the Earth

Where does his heart belong to
Never will he learn

How to console such a man
When all words would burn?

How to abate the loathing
When words mean nothing?

ghosts

when I ran on empty
you filled my life
working around
what lays behind
days of heartbreak
and an eye that was blind
you touch my heart
and ease my mind

months of cold
and listless days
starting over 
all of that erased
once again, I pledge my love
letting all the ghosts abate

Soul Music

Closing my eyes and filling my soul
Music plays a major role

It's deeply embedded into me
As I become my reverie

The notes waft in,stress does abate
I'm filled with love and peace,not hate

Notes tumble out,joy enters in
The music reveals the calm within

I'll always be there for you

Cross my heart I will, for that I love you
Leave this world alone I will, if I ought to get you
Persecuted I was by thy words, oh so cruel
To love you was like a word’s duel

Your words showed signs of abate for my heart
Barren has been my life since we were apart
This place will never be a place to live without you
Angels like you to change one’s life are so few

Time I would surely stop if only I could
Regret in life for your love I never should
Once again I’ll tell you the thing you always knew
Whatever happens to the world I’ll always be there for you

She sits and waits:

She sits and waits for her love to return,
Does he remember how her heart burns?
She prays their love is the eternal flame,
And that he would never play love games.

She sits and waits for her love to say,
Oh, baby, only you make me feel this way,
The thought of losing her gallant knight,
To another maiden in his sight.

She sits and waits for her love to abate,
She senses it will, but is forced to wait,
So did he love her as she loved him?
Or was she simply his passing whim?

She sits and waits for her love to relay,
Perhaps he shall return in the passing of days.

Faith

Faith walks with Sorrow and Suffering.
It’s Light buffering 
their weight,
too heavy to abate.

Why journey with these companions so unpleasant?
What purpose to achieve?
What must I leave
     behind?

Faith walks with Sorrow and Suffering
To transform
All that does not conform
     to Love.

Faith allows my choices to be made.
Will I trust?
Will my heart not fade?

Faith beckons my blind eye to see
Far beyond me,
If I will but trust
And hold tight to Love.
It’s magic to behold;
Worth more than gold.

Bleeding heart

A heart in need is a heart that bleeds

Sad eyes weep as they perceive

A lost love slipping away

Or the plight of our humanity

So many things make our heartache

So many things cause us real pain

We wonder if this suffering will ever abate

Or is a life of suffering so much pain

Is always going to be my fate

Crushing me time and time again

Bearing down on my chest like a heavy weight

This life can be so very tiring

We have to find ways to be inspired

Beyond this suffering hurt and pain

We need to find the strength to rise again.

my son was ten when this time began
and we all started measuring our time
with these odd numbers, nine and eleven
a counter-clockwise reversal of time

back toward when we saw an atomic clock
with a minute hand ten from the stroke
of Armageddon and would never let on
that we might swallow that fear to evoke

distrust and hate and let reason abate
from what mothers and grandmothers taught us
to "love one another" is not personally innate
it's easier to slip backward and obsess

about our certain destruction on this eve
a civilized mankind too hard to believe

The Wreath Part II

Worn-torn hands and withered, cold,
So tender grasp a tarnished cross,
Which had long the lonely nights banished-
Safe passage to some brighter song...

For He whose image that metal boasts
Was storied born this day,
And though bent the frame, still's stout
the will that would some tribute give...

No trees or festive lights adorn
This bare and bleak abode-
Nor human touch to temper want
Or abandonment abate...

Then angels came to claim their own
Whom dear had Heaven held.

The Stalker

I am here and very near to you dear,
my peer who has time to rhyme 
in this grime while I peek, and seek
to be meek with my gawking and stalking.

You can't see all of ME, so I free
instantly the hate that won't abate
in my state of delusion and confusion,
this illusion of us together, bird and feather.


How you tease and then please what I freeze
in memories as I dream of a theme
that you seem to not need as I bleed 
for this seed you don't care to share. 
                     
Don't ignore me! Can't you see that to be
truly free you must sink to the brink
of the stink that is mine to define
as a sign of my love from above?

Yon Bride and Groom

May this, thy day, be a bright miracle,
Replete with well loved family and friends.
Not one cloud darest to the sunlight dim,
Love thou art feeling, that  which never ends.
And may the light that shineth upon thee
Senteth from God and angels up above,
Be there to keep thy troubles few and wee.
May years together magnify thy love.

Problems cometh but quickly shall abate,
Divided as they now by two shalt be,
All of thy joys increased to twice as great
When shareth by two lovers such as ye.
May this, thy newly joined and wedded bliss
Be sealed fast by thy first connubial kiss.

Lack of Love Triangle

Since
The prince
Saw the maid
While on parade,
He determined she
A timid wife would be.
In palace they were wed
And proceeded to royal bed.
There brutality revealed that he
Had neither conscience nor morality.
His depraved abusiveness did not abate,
So twenty years of misery became her fate.
Pretending to obey, she slyly managed to hide
Her inner deep revulsion till the hated despot died
Quite suddenly from cyanide amid her silent laughter.
So the new widow reigned as queen happily forever after.
