A Maize of Listening Ears

Folder: 
Love

Young love
An old truck
Cornfield with a picnic lunch
Just the two of us
But with friends close
Get away from a crazy world
Getting to know you better
You call it romantic
I just call it life
‘Cause this is how I want to spend the rest of mine

Lost in a maize of listening ears
Watching to see what we do
Both our families on our side
Praying to see us through
I want to do this right
Screwed up once before
And I don’t want to go one more night
Without you knowing
Who I adore

Now I’m not rich
But I get through
Love’s more precious than gold
So this ring
I give to you
Shows you you’re my whole world

Lost in a maize of listening ears
Watching to see what we do
Both our families on our side
Praying to see us through
I want to do this right
Screwed up once before
And I don’t want to go one more night
Without you knowing
Who I adore

Now I told her
If you want me
You’ll find me near God’s side
He’s my best friend and Father too
Now He’s smiling at my bride
Growing old
Growing up
Never seemed so hard
Lot of broken dreams
Broken pride
But I never gave her up

Lost in a maize of listening ears
Watching to see what we do
Both our families on our side
Praying to see us through
I want to do this right
Screwed up once before
And I don’t want to go one more night
Without you knowing
Who I adore

Who knows
Someday down the road
I hope it looks like this
Two rocking chairs
Crowded with kids
And all of them are ours
We work hard
But it’s worth it
To see them grow up strong
And see their mother smiling at me
Wrap her in my arms

Lost in a maize of listening ears
Watching to see what we do
Both our families on our side
Praying to see us through
I want to do this right
Screwed up once before
And I don’t want to go one more night
Without you knowing
Who I adore
You’re my hero

Silhouette August 24, 2012

Out of sight.
Out of mind
Somehow, these memories
Won’t fade with time.
A silhouette is
All I see.
Shdows and darkness
Engulf your mind.
Take me back
To those days
Where we both
Were so carefree
And simply living…
Making the best
Of all we have
Despite all those
Abuses suffered.
These scars run deep
Into your mind, heart,
Body, and soul.
Close your eyes.
Imagine a world
Where we’re both
Relinquished of our
Pasts that still haunt us.
Move forward.
Go free.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Written based on the situations of my close friend and I...progress and regression is a pain in addition to various forms of abuse suffered.

Seraphim

Always fighting
My two natures
War within me causes shivers
I can’t hold it
What am I?
A man or beast
A demon or angel
Do angels burn?
Do their wings catch fire?
Mine do
My mind is in torment
It reels from it’s agony
My heart is broken
Again
It’s lying in pieces on the floor
I look up
Who is my tormentor?
A mirror image of my own face
The past self
The present regret
What darkness is in your eyes!
I get off the ground
My bone-wings still on fire
A red halo above my head
And a blue-flame inside my chest
But who are you?
I know your face
My love
Why do you want me?
Look at me, I am fallen
And have further to fall.
Yet she picks me up
My wings cannot grab the air
I can no longer fly with her
I am doomed
And my bane approaches
But she resists my fate
And pulls me to my feet
One kiss
And everything’s alright
My body enveloped in blue flame
Now, I am loved
I have purpose
I have a mandate from the one who sent her
I have the power to love my enemies
To put others before myself
I have the power to do wonders in His Name
And I love her who saved me
Who am I?
I am SERAPHIM

What I'm Gonna Miss

Folder: 
Songs

You know darlin’ I have to go
But I’ll be back for you, you know
I had a call, and gave an answer
The wait is eating me like cancer
I hate to leave you, but I must go
So right now I’m gonna show
Just how much you mean to me
When I leave, It’s gonna be:

What I’m gonna miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to leave like this
But that’s what I’m gonna miss

It’s time to go, I’m leaving now
And I just don’t know how
I’m gonna live without you
Can’t stop thinking about you
But you know, when I return
This job, well, It can burn
I’ll hold you in my arms
Abandon all life’s charms

Cause what I’m gonna miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to leave like this
But that’s what I’m gonna miss

Baby here I am right now
And you just won’t believe how
Thinking about you has kept me alive
Sittin’ on the frontlines, about to dive
Enemies surrounding me on every line
And I’m just waiting, biding my time
Wishing I were home, just kissing you
But instead I’m fighting here missing you

What I really miss
Is the love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I hate to be here like this
But that’s what I miss

My last day, can’t wait to find
The girl of my dreams, always on my mind
Fought a war, and saved her from it
Hardest part was to overcome it
Driving down the driveway
You come running my way
Finally hold you, kiss you now
Looking back I don’t know how

All the things that I missed
The love in your kiss
The sunshine in your hair
The feeling when you’re there
The moonlight in your eyes
The teasing little white lies
You know I love to see you like this
Now there’s nothing more that I'm gonna miss

Lost In Paradise

Folder: 
Love

Time
Space
They’re both relative
They don’t mean a thing
Right now we’re alone
A moonlit dance floor
Rapt in your eyes
Lost in Paradise

 

What happened
How did we get here
It wasn’t so long ago
We weren’t even friends
Now I can’t go on
Not without you
So caught in your smile
Lost in Paradise

 

A long drive home
Back road wind catching your hair
Moonlight beauty
Saying she’s all mine
The future ahead
The pain all behind
Your lips against mine
Lost in Paradise

 

A long trip
But you’re here
In the seat next to me
A misread of directions
The beautiful country
But at least we’re together
We’ll make it out alive
Kill my pride for directions
Lost in Paradise

 

A day not too distant
White all around
I’ve never been so nervous
Then beauty in a gown
The longest walk yet
Then a shower of rice
I promise you myself
And we’re lost in Paradise

 

And sometime down the road
Around life’s twists and bends
Two rocking chairs
Surrounded by grandkids
Two old people
Still madly in love
Going to leave for the skies
Get lost in Paradise

This future is crazy this future is lucid
never knew this future would be so euphoric
endless horizons unending pleasures
warm sensations of paradise of eternal life

Changes that crawl like the serpent

The future doesn't hit you all at once, it comes on slowly,
dulling your awareness of the technological advances,
until the day you look back on the years past and realize how much has changed,
either in amazement or fear.

A sheep lost to the slaughter

Against the pale complexion of his ashen skin,
the orange glow of the fires burned bright.
As he stood alone in the field, watching what remained of his kind rising into the star lit sky,
his eyes filled with sorrow.
The minds that fueled the new machines were not his own;
they died with the flesh bodies, and now he remained the last;
alone in a dark new world,
a mechanized hell where the only hope for a rebirth coursed through his veins.
He turned his eyes toward the heavens.

Neuronet

The ascension of the soul begins with the new program...
when the human/computer interface comes into use in 2017,
the human consciousness will become one with the new God;
the uploading of the neuro-soul into the new heaven.
