Let Me Fly!

Nature Around Us

Let me Fly

Golden sun,

Shine on my upturned face.

West wind,

Blow the tears from my cheeks

and softly ruffle my hair.

Little stars,

Twinkle and smile at me

from the midnight sky.

Light golden glow of the moon,

Guide my path,

so I can find my way.

Oceans breeze,

Cool me, when things get to heated,

Tiny wild flowers,

in the field, calm me with your light scent.

Snow capped mountains,

Give me the strength to carry on.

Eagle's wings,

Give me speed.

You are one of the Kings preferred.

Chosen from the finest of men.

To serve King and Country

With out even reflection.

You stand by your Sovereign.

No questions do you submit

Only answers do you comprise.

Honorable, Righteous, Gallant.

Shiny armor without a tarnish,

As your reputation is radiant.

Your strength and determination

Serve the Crusade.

So fair of face that the Maidens all blush,

As you ride your proud steed

Through the crowded sunlit square.

Its hooves rhythmically clacking

On the time worn stones.

Drumming up effects of long past.

You glance neither left nor right.

For a straight path you must abide.

From your goal no distraction has command.

Forever driving towards your aspiration,

To complete the quest that was set before you.

The golden Grail,

Whose value is not in its metal

But rather from the secrets

that lie within.

To possess this Grail is

what no man has before you.

Many have tried and failed

Whilst they weren’t worthy

To hold this coveted object

in their glimpse.

But this Grail is for you alone,

For with its power you will be king.

Someday . . .

We'll play in the snow

Somewhere in the Colorado Rockies

Someday . . .

We'll pick wildflowers

Across an Oklahoma prairie

Someday . . .

We'll dance under the stars

Beside a rocky shoreline

Someday . . .

We'll listen to the rain

On a Texas tin roof

Someday . . .

We'll watch the sunrise

Above an Arizona desert

Someday . . .

We'll hear Cajun music

Down by a Louisiana Bayou

Someday . . .

We'll see the lights

In the heart of New York City

Someday . . .

We'll make love

Beneath a Carolina moon

Someday . . .

Delusions of a Darkened Nature #1


I smoked myself to sleep
In blood I was knee deep
I never started praying
But now I've started slaying
Look deep into my eyes
Throw off your cute disguise
Look deep into the world
Your just a little girl
And then in my own hand
The force to make a stand
So tomarrows going down
In the abyss I haven't seen
So smile your bloody frown
As I rip out your shattered spleen
And as I walked within my sleep
I had to take a peep
As my souless body creep
To the void they call the deep
Now I stitch into my head
Flows forth a river of red
Runs down my face the falls
I can feel the closing walls
Run to the darkened halls
The halls are growing dim
As darkness takes my limb
The last speck of good I had
The Gods, they must be sad
I never made a stand...
Now I wake up from the dark
I roll and then I spark
My hair is wet and curled
Time to conquer the world..

This was actually supposed to be a song at one time I like it, and you can't understand it you probably don't understand anything I write

"Until Now"

by Jeph Johnson


I had one of those
adolescent wet dreams
just the other night before dawn.  
The kind I've not had
since I learned I could make myself come.  
I was dreaming of you (and your TV).  
And a few cats and a red laser beam.
I was so ashamed.  Not "afraid" per se.
for I not only wished I'd saved my virginity,
but I wished I'd saved
every ounce of semen
from each time
I boldly took out my cock.  
I guess it can build up.
That's why it seeps out
in nocturnal emission.  
My life has been like that,
until now.
only embarrassingly sticky
seeping-out situations.

Dreams of Hopes Unachieved


Why do my dreams always haunt?

My mind creates goals

I'll never achieve,

So out of the question,

I wish they would leave.

My heart set on dreams

That never come true,

I used to be happy,

I just never knew.

My eyes always searching

For my happy end,

For my fairy tale ending,

I'll have to pretend.

My life ain't no movie,

It sure ain't no book.

No princess to rescue,

But still worth a look.

No dragons to slay,

No battles to win,

Maybe it gets better,

Closer to the end.

Wish I could skip pages,

And move further on,

I guess that these hard times,

Are a sine qua non.

To all of the happiness,

Which I hope to find,

The goals and the dreams,

Which torment my mind.

      -Lo Ruhamah

She rolled over. The sun was peeking through the crack between the window and the curtain, and staring her right in the face.  She pulled his empty pillow over her head.  'Oh no, not again...' Morning. 'There aren't enough hours in the night!' "Wake up," he says from across the room.  This isn't the first time he told her to.  She closes her eyes and concentrates on her breathing. Slowly, she lets herself fade back into sleep.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Gee. Sounds familiar. And sounds so inviting... Goodnight. This is actually my trademark.  Ask my mom, Selby, Cecilia, Adam, and anyone else who has ever had to wake me up.

(for Ugonna)


I build, Ugonna,

a Castle of Dreams:

see it; touch it ... hear it

Listen: the music of Love lingers here

feel the satin whispers of Light

slowly searching your soul

I build this Castle

in the midst of a storm

this Castle of Silence

surrounded by the din of Darkness

Nest in its loving Loft

awaiting the Dawn

soar on the rays

of the Sun


Author's Notes/Comments: 

On the Journey through Life and Beyond, Silence speaks with a sweet timbre ...

I live in a fantasyland,

Covered by beaches and sand.

No troubles here,

Nothing to fear.

I am free to roam about,

Free to scream and shout.

I have my own castle and I am king,

I am royalty, I even have a ring.

This place is happy all around,

And not a bad thought can be found.

I hate to leave this place,

And have the real world to face.

I can not run away from it,

I can not throw a fit.

I can only look forward to when I close my eyes,

And go back to my happy, sunny skies.
