Forever Loved

You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see
You were there when I needed you
Just a young child so full of life
Causing many an adult strife
If I lied you could see right through 
You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see 

Because of you I changed my ways
Have respect till my dying days
You were there when I needed you
If I lied you could see right through
You could never be mad at me
Wise old man whom my heart could see

I'll sleep before midnight

In the midst of celebration, I care not for confetti dreams. In fireworks there's no elation, so I ignore new year day memes. Only your lips can bring delight, so let me sleep before midnight. My soul is tired, my heart is worn. Without you what's the point of dawn?

Thanksgiving Celebrations

Time to foster your relations
With thanksgiving celebrations.
With family reminisce past,
All our love now remembering
Come together watch our hearts sing.
Nothing earthly will ever last,
Time to foster your relations
With thanksgiving celebrations.

If stumbling stones stand in your way
Remove them this Thanksgiving Day.
With family reminisce past,
Nothing earthly will ever last.
Time to foster your relations
With thanksgiving celebrations.

Wild Passion

She’s wild, a passionate heart of love inspired Playing a violin, masterful and free So fast and fierce, her every lust is desired Violin sparks aflame burning intensely She screams with pleasure of the fire’s indulgence Peak of passion has reached beyond innocence Her mouth open with flames entering inside She loves her tremendous trek, her awesome ride Russell Sivey Happy Valentines Day

A Walk In Solitude

The summer sand beneath my feet,

                    Now cooling with the twilight blush,

          Is time's reminder, rough and sweet,

                              Of when we found our tender crush ...

This lonesome beach where, long ago,

                    We loved 'neath towels, raw and slow,

          And pledged that one, we'd always be ...

                              Now swept, with years ... far out to sea.

Love Lies Bleeding

Amaranthus weeps in Summer's first burning.
Tears hang suspended from a fracturing heart.
Lost vermillion dreams leave memories churning,
scarlet seeping from the wound of Cupid's dart.

Mourning can heal and be a time of learning,
to once again partake of love's crimson art.
And yet he cannot for from Spring's first seeding
he is destined to live as Love Lies Bleeding.

In Dreams

Draw near in the dark of floating, misty dreams, appear to me, my love, as you used to be, from cold bitter death, leave your Paradise stream, open the gate and drift silently to me, and kiss me, kiss me, my love, within this dream. Inspiration from the poem, Echo, it seems. Christina Rossetti wrote of seclusion, of dreams and lost love with sensual passion. _________________________ January 8, 2013 Poetry/Rispetto/In Dreams Copyright Protected, ID 01-447-992-08 All Rights Reserved, 2013, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Poetry About Poetry sponsor, Russel Sivey, Judged 01/20/2013 Second Place

The Heart of a Poet Speaks Part 5

Good day , I have been dormant for many years
Maybe some of YOU can remember my words
I spoke in my Host’s stead, through oceans of tears
I come to YOU, singing ; Flutter with the birds
Humming Hymns : a crescendo of  “ Forever “
Barbara Jean Gorelick : my Hosts’  “FOREVER”
I’m beating for her : the Gift of God : to Man
I see the Light again : LOVE I Understand
                                                   To be Continued

Inspired By Dr. Ram Mehta For His POEM : "Life a flowing river - Rispetto "

Love Is Actually the Sweet Foundation

For anything that is built in life’s domain
     Love is actually the sweet foundation
Though finding it, often a tricky campaign
      It’s the basic blueprint for our salvation

While not brick and mortar or earthly terrain
     Such strength it provides without hesitation
 It’s all that I am and forever will be
     Love is actually everything to me

Love Is Actually God

Creation in bloom His eternal essence
From the whom, Love a marvelous inception
In a sonic boom, His omniscient presence
As we consume His Love from births conception
His Love in loom, a brilliant luminescence
Angels groom in His Love, for our reception
Let’s assume, that Love is God and God is all
He will make room, with His Love in Heaven's ball.

 The form required is Rispetto,  which is an Italian form of poetry with 8 lines, consisting of two rhymed quatrains, or an octave (8-line stanza), with a strict meter. There should be 11 syllables per line with the rhyming pattern of abababcc.

Naturally Respectful

Above all, let's respect Nature,
It's God's gift, a divine structure;
The heavens declare His glory,
In His wisdom founded the earth
And wrought the miracle of birth,
His creation tells his story;
Above all, let's respect nature,
It's God's gift, a divine structure.

With faith His love we understand,
In need if we but seek His hand,
The heavens declare His glory,
His creation tells His story;
Above all, let's respect nature,
It's God's gift, a divine structure.

Love Is Actually Failing

At first they were in love, but soon he preferred those sexy curves of his cute blonde employer The divorce rate’s soaring I recently heard - see forlorn people stand in the court foyer. Love is actually a four-letter word, the real winner of it all is their lawyer! I think it’s so sad when a romance is dead… He shouldn’t have slept in another girl’s bed!

Love Is Actually-A Dreamer's Dream

Love is actually a dreamer's dream that's found
When hungry eyes find a warm emotional rush
And voices come to join and produce soft sound
So love's sweet breath can rest in a solemn hush
When tender hands hold tightly on sacred ground
As lips and tongues meld in their dance so lush
To feel love for someone it can overwhelm
Who yearns so unafraid in a fiery realm

Dreamy Place

Close your eyes and see a loch, the spot I  go: 
icy waters swirl beneath my wooden boat,
tall surrounding hills are blanketed in snow,
lashed by hail, I button up my winter coat,
Nessie glides and fishes in her world below.
Will she choose today to surface, maybe float?
If she's friend or foe, I long to see her face!
Visits only in my head, I love this place...

I Still See You

"This love never dies because it is immortal and eternal, it exists in my heart until that day he takes my hand again." Quote by _Constance The snow covers your cold tomb my one true love, your life short- but our love is forever; I will not forget when you left for above, your face, kisses and voice will not leave ever. I see you in the morning and in the park, in each moon and the stars that glow on nights dark; I see my true love in all beautiful things, and in each lovely bird song that soars on wings !

“We’re not the body, we’re not this ~
Who we are, is love, light and bliss”
            ~ quote by poet

If asked what’s the name of our soul,
which lives on after body dies,
what definition would console
ego, that thrives on blatant lies?

Made in God’s image, we are light,
which is seen by spherical sight
but since we have with ego slept,
truth of our soul, we don’t accept.

Back Home

I carried my heart far from home on a quest for love. Feeling like a well gone dry, I yearned to fill an emptiness and rambled to find rest. I sought solace in strangers, all my love spurned. For years, I searched faces and hopeless city streets, lonely sidewalks rolling out before me. After wasted time far behind and miles roamed, I learned my heart ached for who waited back home.

Unified Heartbeat

Like the heart that got washed away by the sea Like the blessings shown on us flying away Lost love crumbles before us which cannot be The need outweighs the displeasure of each day But life ceased the unified heartbeat within Time made these broken links, knocking off our grin We were once inseparable, but now moved Like stars in the sky falling, they’re disapproved Russell Sivey Based on an old relationship.

Flying Hearts

Floating in water, straight up and down she floats An angel comes down from heaven to greet her The angel gives the woman flying hearts, invokes Powerful love comes from her soul I confer She now sprouts some wings so she may fly again Never did this much joy arrive to begin She chokes with feelings of heartfelt love inside Memories flood within, rising by her side Russell Sivey

May Magic

God created wonderful magic in May
By creating our Sweetheart Linda-Marie
He worked lots of magic that beautiful day
And the world is a better place, don't you see

She is certainly a bright and shining star
With a glow like moonbeams captured in a jar
Those of us who know her love her very much
And pray that she will always stay in close touch

She Deserves Respect

Whispers of love before the dawn
then morning comes and he's long gone.
A fragile heart in affliction,
she reminisces - days gone by
when young love camouflaged each lie.
Once, his charms were her addiction.
Whispers of love before the dawn
then morning comes and he's long gone.

Moonlit smiles caress her with hope
'til day exposes fraying rope.
A fragile heart in affliction,
Once, his charms were her addiction.
Whispers of love before the dawn
then morning comes and he's long gone.

Surrender, An Offering of Love

Strands’ fluid strength; bliss, distress, routineness plait,
Tears multi-colored seeded, love's wisdom grows.
Esplanades calico edge Shangri-la’s gate,
Memoirs in motifs bittersweet and rainbows.

Thruway taken true.., not meandering fate.
Garden, Eden’s stroll sought, golden lit primrose,
‘I love You’ lives in amaranthine splendor;
We know love is actually... Surrender.

Respectfully Yours

I found a nest in God's Kingdom A place of peace, rest and freedom Where useless worry shall not invade Of fleshly guise subdued in chains A place where joyous love fulfills And angels gently serenade I found a nest in God's Kingdom A place of peace, rest and freedom And you my gracious Cornerstone I say to you I AM your own And now my spirit soul is bound Agape' love, sweet and profound In gratitude I bow to pray And float entwined through love's doorway...
