How can I tell you
In so convincing a way
That I am yours
I could tell your eyes with my lips
Your shoulders with my breath
Your tummy with my cheek
Your bosom with my embrace
I could whisper in your ear
Massage your feet
Sponge warm water on your back
Stroke my fingers along your contours
I could listen to you without saying anything
And love you
Yes I am yours my lovely

Please don’t cry
I’m here when you sleep
As soon as you lie
My love is still here
You should have no fear
Just wait a while
It will all be clear
My voice you will hear
Pleasant to your ears
My words become a sponge
Wiping away your tears
To my baby
My sweet little lady
To my baby
I will love daily
Let my words
Let you know that I love you
Cradle you as you sleep
And hug you
With a feeling so deep
And my voice you know so well
Rest with you and dwell

While the slaves worked the
field and prayed the days of labor were
coming to a halt; from good ole caeser
who ruled with an iron hand.
Nights of silence was like spring and
the mornings torment.
During work a roman soldier passed
with a bucket of water and a sponge
to drink it down
John was just dicussing the subject
of compassion, and how Christ taught
about love and unity.

Some think I have much wisdom
Actually wisdom comes from experience
It doesn't require any special talents
Observation is key ingredient
One only needs an inquiring mind
Just suck up the knowledge you require
Store it away to impress the younger souls
Don't tell them they too will acquire
Make them think you're a special dude
Filled to the brim with the smarts
Began with a great big sponge for a mind
Sucking up stuff from the start
So keep this wee secret betwixt you and me
So others will think I'm real special
Admire my smarts, call me Your Highness
Recognize I'm an intelligent devil

birthday, childhood, family, food, grandmother, growing up, memory,
From fruit scones, to meat pie,
Apple crumble and coffee cake,
Sunday tea was amazing,
Because, my Granny sure could bake.
Secret ingredients, she wouldn't divulge,
Passed down from years gone by,
When I look back on those days,
It brings a tear to my eye.
From butterfly buns, to Victoria sponge,
A moist fruit loaf, filled with flavour,
Jam tarts and gingerbread men,
For the kids to savour.
Sausage rolls and a birthday cake,
Made for a special party tea,
Cheese and onion pie a fresh baked loaf,
All made especially for family.
Granny's recipes are the best recipes,
Made of all things nice,
A Granny's love as the main ingredient,
To add that extra bit of allspice.

The Sweet Name of Jesus…
Jesus… Your name is like sweet honey
on my tongue,
My soul soaks in your love…
Like a dry sponge!
My spirit will continue to hunger
Until I let you reign in my life!
I confess Jesus as Lord.
On my knees I yield,
He’s my rock, fortress
He’s my protection and
a sure foundation,
For only in HIM is there

Being with you is an emotional roller coaster …instability
You circulate my emotions from the heights to the dungeon
my guards are down I own the humility
You are the destroyer of my being, my soul sponge
Being in love with you is my only addiction
Escapades of the heart is uncontrollable
Possessiveness, jealousy, fear of rejection
It’s false evidence, a delusion, complete fiction
I sacrificed everything, now my life takes precedence
Involuntary passion is not consolable
Good bye codependence; hello independence
You love me and then leave me alone
Loving you is not good for me, it’s recklessly wrong

baby, blessing, brother, children, courage, family, little sister,
My tiny eyes shed tears,
Sometimes of pain and many fears,
You threw a mean punch and I learned to duck,
But in all those fights I learned to kick,
Like a stubborn angry baby mule,
And with speed I ran a mile.
My tiny lips smiled,
And I knew I was loved,
The bullies held back,
Lest you break their backs,
Fist of my brother you had my back,
Even when I feared the dark.
Sometimes I wanted to hit you so hard,
But my fist to you was a soft sponge,
You felt no pain so you took my beatings,
With your courage I saw me thriving,
Fist of my brother I love you still,
Even though my own fist has become steel.

Into the grain
Of the wooden cross
At the ultimate cost
A spear lifts
A wet sponge
To lips cracked
From the heat
As the beloved companion
Cries at his feet
The blood of Christ
Drips from toes
Shed by a forgiving
Love that endears
by Mike Youds |
funny, loss, love, me,
Oh it’s OK for you with that girl on your arm
Pretty face, startling eyes, breasts like delicious
Sponge cakes filled with jam and cream.
I know that you think of me as avaricious
But look at it from my side of the stream
She adores you it’s plain to see.
So what about my self esteem?
For my real, totally consuming love is for my old PC
But do you think it even shows me any tenderness
Like Hell it does!

If the soul is the eye of life
The brain is the sponge
My heart bleeds so much I am never alone
Is there some realization to make me cry ?
To much time breeds my indecision
I go forth to see the world
My template is somewhere near God
I move so fast a blink seems to be an eternity
Love is everything
Please take me home
I long to see my beginning
I am a blank canvas
Paint me for good it's over

Sponge Is being squeezed
Blood is pouring out
Tears are pouring out
Love is pouring out
Creating love river
Maker of oneness
Weaving through nooks and crannies
Of souls of people

My brain is a drain
For knowledge, like rain,
Which pours down the spout
And tumbles right out.
My mind is a sponge, encrusted with grunge.
The leftover scum of a brainwash.
When truth inundates, a bit penetrates
And the sponge get's a little bit larger.
As insight seeps in, I finally begin
To fill with the wisdom of faith.
My psyche is clear, no traces of fear,
All the filth and pollution are gone.
My soul is a bowl
For love and it's full.
It sloshes about
And splashes right out.
by John Bertin |
blue, dark, goodbye,
grabbed by your firm hands
then felt your soft hair
and briefly, the windowsill
and going down, down
into a dark grotto
badlands of memories
so much rainfall
without even a sky
I pushed up the steel cover
to take deep breaths
return to submerged
a toothpick embedded
in purple gelatin
love stained the floor of my life
it was spreading outward
take a sponge
make love a perfect trapezoid
by CayCay Jennings |
animal, boy, cat, child, childhood, friendship, love,
How beautiful they both are to my eyes and emotions;
my precious, toddler son is my very heart and
our frisky kitten is my loving, purr baby!
The two boys bonded quickly and surprisingly gently.
Right now, both focus equally raptly captured by all
wonders in rain’s changes upon the windowpane.
Enthralled by wet glistenings, one small paw and hand
both draw dew ribbons with same baby sponge passion.

love, heart, heart,
She saw him nailed on the lovers cross
With each blow hammered to the nails......
He felt sharp pangs driven into his heart
Each strike reminded him of her misdeeds
Betrayal, unfaithfulness, wickedness.......
Bang, bang, bang they were driven in.
With a dry heart he asked for some water
Upon a spear gave him vinegar on sponge
To dry his appealing lips.
She saw a wound opened on his side
To him he was reminded of the bone of creation
He looked into the skies with a plea.
When turmoil struck in the light of day......
She ran home to shroud her guilt
Amid tears she tried to hide
Waters that would not cease wetting her pillow.
Discovering her transgression
She gives her heart to the Lord.

i love you,
It all begun I should have been overstrung however the puppy love begun
Wasn’t matured completely to acquire any alcoholic refreshments from any liquor store yet the love I grown for her was drunk
Can I overcome what we could had become
Months of squeezing you like a sponge, love was easily squeezed out like a sponge
The expense you pay when your in love I need a refund
That thing termed love for me is out of sight I’m done.

Take a photo of me in bed
In my lingerie
While I fix my glare
On your contoured packs
Let's jump, roll and tangle in play
And taste the sweetness of the morn
Pour in the valley of my breast, milk
Sponge it all up with your pink long tongue
by B Nhlakanipho Fortune Sikhakhane |
inspirational love, love,
LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED
To some people’s places,
Teach it to stay to its apartment,
Ease it with what it has,
In the time of seclusion, sing the song that you imparted it,
Let it value what it owns,
Fulfil it with the truth,
Let it know troubling invites guests,
Who will be around for a while -- And tint what will never sponge away,
It can be sovereign and unrulable sometimes,
It can be jealous and wanting more, be a doctor,
Take care of it, control it -- Be a mom’s daughter,
Cry for who secure your joy and knows your sadness,
Who is always around when you’re reckless,
Do you remember that necklace?

Conflict to make memories
It is hard like hard Rock
Island of deep memories
Cover with the salt plant
Sponge of cake cuts daily without
fail drink of choice for the
first place in mind to
conflict to make memories the day
will not come when sands get cool
the day will not come when you slap
in my soul because I don't have courage to
conflict to make memories
With love all

lost love, love,
Its gone away
The river run dry
Like a sponge in my throat
The words i need
Just pass me by

beauty, black african american, love, pride, women,
Beautiful obsidian figures
Artfully sculpted from the smoothest and hardest of stone
You have a luster like no other
As if God were your makeup artist
And she sat you down one day,
Took a beauty sponge out of her kit
And applied sunlight to not just your face,
But every inch of you
It doesn't wash off
No matter how old it gets
And you're wearing it well
You're all wearing it very well.

daughter, family, children, love,
immense brown doe eyes
my artistic creation
visions and tunes
ebb from your soul.
Miss baby blue
a shade I've seen before
like a whip you are
a sponge, absorbing all.
My green eyed angel
such a sweet laugh
tickled out by a nibbled auricle.
Oh, how I love you,
all I would surrender
for your gain.
