The Luckiest Man
I have found that not everyone is as strong
As the skies are wide and the days are long
But in life I have found there is this one
Whose bounty makes me feel as warm as the sun
And from the moment that she first caught my eye
I knew I’d be with her til’ the day that I die
That I would love and cherish her all the day through
And do all those little things we men are supposed to do
And spend my days lost in utter bliss
That I had this beautiful woman to kiss
And there’s one true fact ‘bout her being my girl
That makes me the luckiest man in the world

crazy, humorous, hyperbole,
There's a place whence children dwell amid
fairy stories, popcorn rainbows & candied unicorns,
which is fine & dandy except when
you're supposed to be a grown-*** adult,
some people live 'round La-La landscapes
without a hint of reality's woefulness,
unable to read skywriting on the cosmos
If you believe in miracles or
that nothing ever changes
and love lasts forever and a day
or just say,
you got a damn ticket because
your unicorn was inconveniently double-parked,
rest assured thine meter is delusional

anxiety, desire, emotions, feelings, love, romantic,
I cannot help feeling the way that I feel
or doing the things that I do;
acting the way I'm not supposed to.
For I have not the discipline to do so.
Your presence is powerful, and intense..
it overwhelms me completely
and takes control of me.
For that moment, it's an eternity.
I am rendered helpless..
in a state of mind in which I cannot think
clearly, nor focus or believe
in anything other than you.
Everything that I have learned.
Everything that I have built myself upon
has vanished. No rules or religion can
deter me to think otherwise.
I am at your mercy,
whether your intent was to do so or not;
it's how I feel, and it's how I am
when I'm with you.

Humming a beautiful love song
as I skip around the room
the smell of fresh baked cookies
as I enjoy this Tuesday afternoon
Watching children play in the leaf piles
out in the neighbor's front yard
Daydreaming of a family
together between me and you
Days of smiles and nights of warmth
in a cozy little home upon a grassy noll
Giant oaks and evergreens
along with an apple tree
filling up our hillside
where we'll picnic in the spring
Holding hands and living dreams
what love is supposed to be
A note I'll write for you my dear
about a time I do foresee
Where my heart is full
the beats ring true
and love is all we live
by Patricia Cresswell |
I know we are supposed to love them
all creatures great and small
I know God had a reason
when he created those that crawl
even those that creep and flit
are part of a master plan
filling every earthly niche
in air, in water, on land
but Lord in your mighty scheme
please tell me in what mood
as you perused your work
and saw that it was good
inspected every nook and cranny
touched every leaf and twig
prompted you without a glance
to invent the pesky earwig.

depression, girlfriend-boyfriend, introspection, lost love, love, nostalgia, passion, sad
I have tried,
For months I have tried,
to let go of your haunting memory.
Behind every fake smile I give,
I blindly hope I give an aura,
of being happy.
I am not.
I fall asleep at night,
only to find you haunting my dreams.
The life I wanted to have,
the love I needed,
it’s all slipping so far away.
I heard about you and her.
I was engulfed with sadness.
I was supposed to be me,
There is no one to blame,
no one to accept this burden.
I bury it deep inside,
by Kristy Mcgee |
feeling confused as hell
don't know how i feel, how i'm supposed to feel
am i supposed to feel like i need you, like i can't live without you
because i don't feel that way
am i supposed to miss you at night, want you by my side
because i don't
am i supposed to want to fight till the end for us
because i don't think i want to
to want to be with you, i don't know i should feel
it scares me but i don't know if this is going to work
what if my heart is moving on...
by Yoni Dvorkis |
They are always suffering
They don't deserve this
And neither do I
It kills me inside
That I can't help them
I need guidance
Show yourself to me
You're supposed to guide me
So why don't I hear you?
You claim to know so many things that I don't
And yet you give me no indication
That you exist
That you can help
Don't tell me I suffer by choice
Just tell me where to look
And what to do
For the solution to come
And the problem disappear
They can't continue on much longer
I'm all they have
If I won't fix this no one will
I need to make a difference
I need to have faith
by Barbara Gorelick |
Tying my shoes ($$) for my morning run,
I think about quitting, I wish it were done.
Perhaps if I run at least a mile each way,
I won’t have to cry at what the scales say.
My breath comes in gasps, I look a freight,
The people I pass must laugh at my plight.
I would love to feel the wind in my face,
To do that though, I’d have to pick up the pace.
A few strides taken, my back starts to ache,
My joints are stiff, damn, give me a break.
Where is the euphoria I’m supposed to feel?
The “runners high” they say is part of the deal.
It never gets easier, a form of torture each time…
But hearing “way to go grandma!” is really sublime.
by Kim Hasler |
hope, life, love,
I can't believe i feel like this
I hate this feeling so bad
Do you know the one thing i miss
Is the things we could of had
I'd start again somewhere new
I'd leave everything here behind
Paige, our baby me and you
If only you changed your mind
How am i supposed to live my life
Without you by my side
I couldn't wait to be your wife
And all i can do now is cry
For now and forever till the end of time
And now i know my fate
I'll sit and make this poem rhyme
Until i go and wait for you at the gate
Then we can be together for eternity
But if you change your mind
Then it will be just you and me
I'll be with you each and every time.
by Nicholas Westerhausen |
faith, lifeme, me,
How is it Lord that I should be faced with this?
Isn't the hard part supposed to be Your job?
All I had to do was believe, didn't I?
Yet You still rely on me for these choices.
Is that not stupidity? Is that not dangerous?
My life would kill me or leave me for dead.
You showed me the Way to a better place,
But I think You should be carrying me there.
Don't make this so hard on me, God.
You should be here for me.
I will try it without you,
But I doubt it will work.
by Michael Osborne |
confusion, lost love, love, me, me,
How am I supposed to find the words,
That will tell you how I feel?
How am I supposed to accurately express,
My emotions that are real?
How am I supposed to react,
When you go away for good?
How am I supposed to go on,
Living my life the way I should?
How can you expect me to forget,
These wonderful times we've shared?
How can you expect me to act,
Like I've never even cared?
How can you expect me not to believe,
That you don't have deep feelings for me?
How can you expect me not to love,
When our love is clear to see?
by Damian Keady |
meaningful, true love,
Time to greet or maybe meet
There is a time I could tell
Time for me to go to and smell
But I was budging the gates of hell
So how was I supposed to tell
Unless the bell rings out as well
As I can’t just keep kicking time
Nor never ever have a rhyme
And if I could then I would
Just stand here like I should
As time means place
But place is time
But we both found our own Stime
To stop and start and make it better
So that we both know each other
Like we sent a love letter
by Pauline Grass |
angst, confusion, life, loss, lost love, sad, sorry,
Untouchable, yet close enough to touch.
It's wrong, I know but I want you so much.
You are the compliment to who I am supposed to be.
You are the one who can set my tortured soul free.
To help me to thrive and to inspire me.
It brings tears to my eyes to think of the impossibility.
There are too many obstacles in our way,
Too many people to hurt, too big a price to pay.
So with a friendship I must be satisfied,
And bury these feelings deep down inside.
It's just that from you it will be too hard to hide,
When I spend so much of the day at your side.
I think that I am going out of my mind.
by Eddie Johnson |
life, lost love, people, pain, life,
As I fill my life with constant dread
I have these crazy thoughts within my head
Nothing seems to take this pain away
Not even the alcohol I drink every day
I try to live life one day at a time
Trying to figure out just what’s on my mind
Staying up and talking to friends
Really just trying to make a mends
Trying to live as long as I can
I think that’s really life’s only plan
As I set thinking and alone
I really wonder whats going on
What am I really supposed to do
Who is it that I need to talk to
Why does the pain in my heart hurt so bad
How could I had loved someone I never had
by Shahana Jackson |
happiness, life, lovefear, love,
I associate being complete with falling in love.
Does that mean that as a child I didn't get
I fear loneliness like elephants fear mice
and I go from person to person
trying to get it right.
But something is missing
something has been missing for a while
and I don't want to appear weak
I just want some one to make me smile
Is it so bad that I associate love with being whole
I know what your supposed to be told
that you must love thyself before anyone else will
but I just want someone to hold
I want someone not to go
when I need them the most.

feelings, heartbreak, love hurts, math,
One plus one plus one does not equal two
For me it adds up to heartache and tears
What's going to happen to me and you
If the third one should suddenly appear
I was not very good in math at school
I'm certain the math teacher would agree
The numbers don't add up, but I'm a fool
For thinking the answer is two not three
Tell me what I'm supposed to tell my heart
When it finds out and one heart becomes two
The heartache will surely break it apart
Then the tears will come from me and not you
Sometimes equations look easy at first
And if you add too quickly you'll get hurt

beauty, dedication, love,
I can’t take my eyes off of you
It doesn’t matter what you do
You have a great hold on me
Making me the best I can be
I can’t take my eyes off of you
You are in me whatever I do
My love has such a strong flow
Cupid has hit me with his arrow
I can’t take my eyes off of you
In all that I am and all that I do
You are the one to keep me up
Your power overflows my cup
I can’t take my eyes off of you
In all the things I say and do
I think about it and it is true
Now what am I supposed to do
by Allen Dean |
i loved her in ways i cant explain
it still was,nt enough to heel this pain
i gave her my life over and over again
but she still left me for my best friend
loyal is what she supposed to be
but i guess that did,nt apply to me
wisdom to it all because i been around
i made myself the fool of this town
knowledge to it all i stayed and learned
still cant understand how i got burned
i love her still
and always will
she dont no how i feel
i,ll leave her alone until my heart heal
forgive her and never forget
and remind myself that this is it.
by Kristi Hayner |
told me today to rest
and have more play
Beltane may be her day
yet called upon
she'll thaw your lil feelin's
like our alice in wonderland
embarrassed and bewildered
there's nothing to be done
love love love love love the best I can
not to be cold judge
thanks for the reminder
I'm 'posed to be the
grown up here
life experience to share
but only when asked, duh
kiss kiss hug hug
(think this is supposed be rap?!??!!)
by Laura Dizonno |
you brought me
and crashed me
love isnt supposed
or is it?
by Paul Schneiter |
Sages say it's wise to persist
In striving for respect over love.
Such counsel I readily dismiss
One is set here, the other above.
Respect requires a clinical bent
Empathy-empty in the joints.
But love lodges everywhere sent
Heals, blesses, and anoints.
Respect eschews a pardoned act
Fearing a weakness be exposed.
But loves sustains itself intact
Caring not for what is supposed.
Prioritize respect if still you will
Seal it fast in bones and soul.
Know though when life bodes ill
It's love that makes it whole.
by Kirstie Fontes |
childhood, family, father,
I remember sitting on your lap and feeling completely content.
I remember sitting with daisies in my hair waiting for the big day.
I remember the smile on your face when I walked into the room.
I remember all the hugs and kisses to make the owies go away.
Most of all I remember the love. The unconditional love that you have always
showed me. You always treated me like your natural daughter. Through all the
love and pain, through all the loss and tears, through all the joys and
disappointments. You have always been there encouraging me, loving me, and
You are the Dad I am supposed to have. I thank God everyday for sending you to
us and making us a family.

abuse, betrayal, discrimination, divorce, imagery, love hurts,
Happy married life
They greeted, eyes filled with love
Like mouth and tooth love
Or fish ans water love
Three years passed
Or after a kid
They become the sun
And the moon
What makes it gone
While it supposed to maintain
This write is asking a question that I myself can't answered, I have tried a lot of times, but all my answers were not tangible, since marriage is for better and for worse. I know you are here for me to answer this.
Sun and moon have the same thing in common! But why is it that they can't become ONE, please why did love vanished between two lovers after they had married.

health, introspection, life, love,
Strong, like kingdom walls,
stacks of sandbags, swamps of quicksand,
or barricades of filigreed barbed wire.
It holds me inside.
I can see myself in eleven years.
Perched on sterile metal instead of
mountains of handmade quilts,
or nests of woven moss.
It will have turned love-making and child-bearing
from an art to a science,
and I will paint pictures
of how being a woman is supposed to feel.
