Love feels like an illusion;
a mix of lies and the truth.
For it's non-responsive to
the expectations of youth.
Facing doubt and frustration,
bravado falters, then slips.
And yet, in your fantasies,
passion congers eager lips.
Hope courts imagination,
summoning a dreamy smile.
And you find your private place,
where you haven't been for a while.
You're in search of a soulmate
who will share your existence.
So, you continue to look
with undying persistence.
You fall in and out of love
with ghosts that haunt night and day.
And despite your loneliness,
think, everything's okay.

dreamland paved with
within themselves the dark light of
my nightmares, shelters in
its core the essence of
fear, sweetened only
by some amber-
like glow of the passing of
a summer storm…you see,
lightning isn’t meant
to live forever…and while
i endow the sky with the
ashes left behind by the
touch of your soul on mine,
summoning for a phoenix seems
to be the darkest magic my words

africa, beautiful, beauty, identity, lost love, star, truth,
tears fall from the eyes of a broken soul
lost without her mate of choice the shrunken soul
ask for the truth of the lie to be revealed.
From beyond, the Sufi whispers to the forsaken soul
frantic like a child without bottle
she to the machine has become the token soul.
Asked if her pride could bear the truth behind lies
she questioned the worth of pride to a stricken soul
and prepared to swallow the pill of truth.
summoning the mauve star of the Aladdin soul
truth blinded her eye and buckled her knee
causing her tongue to cleanse her awaken soul.
All has become enlighten to this new humble spirit
while I, Taylor, splinter an impious dormant African soul !

august, betrayal, emotions, feelings, love hurts,
As anger hurls departing words,
deceitful tactics are employed.
And two hearts are split asunder,
causing pain; they tried to avoid.
As dreams began to drift apart,
arguments held feelings at bay.
And letting doubt push love aside,
they somehow choose to walk away.
Anxieties began to climb
while summoning tears to their pain.
And yet, even though steeped in hurt,
bittersweet memories remain.
Loneliness longs for feelings felt
in the closeness of an embrace.
Yet hope cannot revive passion,
though it keeps trying, just in case.

Fool an i
we lay so incredulously
In a love....
That it seems our sorrows rest in mind
and all is enabled,
now we able,
to weave mesh of this light as we bind...
seemingly caught up in webs of time.
But stood it may
like a shadow
was the thoughts that attest between us..
how uncouth the prattled battle lay,
all it consumes,
as it presumes ,
to arrest and attest for our lives...
keeping us caught up in lies 'till we die.

beauty, celebration, love,
Your smile is like a beacon for my eyes,
summoning me, with the gentle beauty
that surrounds you like the soft glow
of the sun rising on a summer's morning
Your laughter is like music to my ears,
calling me forth with notes of honest joy
that emanate from your kind heart
like a melody that beckons; come near

A Sister’s Letter
In a letter I found written to your sister,
you wrote no problem existed too large or small
she could not bring it to you for counsel and support.
Best sister in the world, I read on, whereupon these
moist old eyes gave way to sobbing at the intense sincerity
of a closeness unrepeatable now.
You stood there beside her as she faded from us,
a circumstance utmost love of family could not alter
even in devotion so great I shy at its summoning.
Could a mother find anything sadder or sweeter as each of you,
a testimony of sororal love born to me. Harmony is silent now
mid-tune in a song whose chorus cannot come round.

for him, longing, lost love, memory, missing you, sensual, water,
It’s been so long since I’ve had that water
The soft rain of you restored every withered part of me
And my blood still burns
Recalling your touch…like gentle showers
In the dark I can see your face
Summoning each familiar detail
Brings my heart to a state of grace
It knows so rarely now
Like sepia dust kicked up by an old car on a dirt road
The tendrils of my memories fade to nothingness
As if they never existed, and settle once more
Waiting for the cool water to drench me

Everything turns to ashes and dust
Love always seems to just be lust
We always look for our deepest desire
But we live life as a funeral pyre
A dark Angel is now coming
It is my turn for the summoning
Will she be taking me to Heaven or Hell?
That is a truth I am not able to tell
Because within these shadows I still walk
Where darkness dwells to always stalk
And midnight friends come out to stare
And this twilight hour they come to share

O' That Time Itself Would Reverse
There in the closet, that old hat
summoning memories to dwell.
Commands obeyed and that was that
secrets, one never ever tells.
Days bright, times were not all so bad
echoes sounding, laughter and heart.
What was the rage and all the fad
"don't give a damn", was a fine start.
Now what time reveals, steals the joy
singing truth too often denied.
Wild is fun but it oft destroys
blessed love, because one lied.
O' that Time itself would reverse.
Seeing that hat, not be a curse.

faith, hope, love, peace, religion, uplifting,
I have vanished into portals of eternal light.
lifted by pulchritudinous beams of mighty wisdom.
granted a wind lifted seat. Maid by yellow light.A cloud lifted palace, crowned by benign angels.With aggressively shimmering chips of gems ,stuck submissively and obedient to their wings.
Angels blowing a charmed horn, summoning the unknown.
Before me, a carpet made of water and gold did unfold
A all powerful voice says,step forth.
One of the few eternally blessed.

Mystical moon dancer who summons owls
Spinning her wild imaginative cleverness
Flowing amongst the rhinestone stars
Summoning the holy wise ones
Delighting heaven’s gatekeepers
Emoting words of love
Showering humanity with dainty hope
Frolicking in a frothy ethereal light
Pirouetting soulfully amongst the sky keepers
Mystical moon dancer who summons owls

love, passionme, me,
Your voice, like a river rippling,
waves of goose bumps,
awaken my inner spirit,
fill me with delight.
Your gaze, magnetic, blue
clear as the evening night,
gently captures my inner light.
Your heart, speaks softly, soulfully,
but never in spite.
Your touch, captivating, tranquil, slight,
caressing me slowly,
with all of your might.
Your smile, brilliant, bright,
tantalizing, on a steamy summer night,
summoning me gently,
to be your wife.

A Story to be Told
Some characters are forming in my mind, strong and powerful, yet wise and kind.
Filled with Light, Hope and Good, I know these characters stand for what should.
Summoning the magic from the depths of their souls, they might bend but they never will fold.
Strength, Courage and Love, maybe even a little help from somewhere up above.
They will fight with the honor that runs through their veins. They'll protect, guard and in time knowledge they will gain.
Until the day their destiny is fulfilled, in the darkness the light shall be revealed.

games, heart, life, love, love hurts, relationship, war,
This game was on
right before we met.
This game was on
right before we were even born.
No one has ever said that
playing by the devil's bible is easy
and, to tell the truth,
I have never fancied gambling.
But this time I was called to act
by the summoning, and though
the price was never so high
like this before
I take the offer on losing everything
I have ever had.
Because sitting at this table
right here in front of you,
streamed by Acorns, Bells, and Leaves,
threatened Over-n-Under by the Knave,
I must defeat you by my own Heart
before the King itself slaughters me
by the hand of the Deuce.
