Commitment

Desperate Catharsis

I wrote a wish a piece of paper,
Held it to my heart as I whispered your name.
Sliding it beneath your pillow as you sleep,
I hope to meet you in dreams,
Silent and hungry for your everlasting kiss.

Too afraid to place the softness of my lips on your tired skin,
For fear of it unraveling between my shaking fingertips.
The son of insecurity, that loves everything that is not he,
Wanting more than just a lucid daydream.
Is this an illusion,
Or a promise of what may be?

YOU'RE TOAST

YOU’RE TOAST
Edward Iacona

When it comes to getting married
There is this lesson to learn,
Beware of toasting flutes that say,
“To Whom It May Concern”.

Another version that can cause stress
Or might leave one quite perplexed,
Would be the matched pair of glasses
That refers to you as, “NEXT”.

Forever and for always

Everything seems so nice do you all agree?
life is suddenly beautiful or is it just me?
I am feeling good, never better
this trasition will complete sooner or later

Every word of yours luminates my soul
this is you that makes me whole.
thankyou for your loving care,
thankyou for being always there,

I wanna make a promise and I would never lie
I will always love you.. till the moment I die
So these word are my verdict and its true,
"Forever And Always,I Will Love You."

Land of the Eagle

Ugonna Wachuku 

 

There is a dream far from 

the land of my soul.

 

There are tearful streams

of thought caressing the

yearning warmth of my being.

 

Windfull trees sway to the

rhythm of nature's heart-beat

in the eye of the me that

I am.

 

This new dawn, I walk your path

with handsome hope and tear-drops

on my right hand.

 

This new day, I yearn to see

new landscapes and new beginnings.

But the day is misty, the landscape

unkwown.

 

Yet I am heaven's hopeful child.

And I must dream beautiful, new

dreams on this land of the eagle.

 

This new day, let me be created

anew with love on this land of

the eagle beyond my dreams.

 

Let me be who I must be for the

good of all humanity. Just let

me be made whole on this land

of the eagle.

 

This new day, there

is a dream far from

the land of my

yearning soul.

Help me Lord!

 

This new day, let me be

created anew with living

hope and strength on this

lush land of the eagle!

Each day does indeed hold new beginnings.  When we try to view tomrrow
from yesterdays point of view, those new beginnings do look misty.
Even if we try to see the newness in the early dawn, there is mist.
We are unable to see the plans which God lays before us each day, for
his plans are much different than what we could ever imagine.  I think
we are only to know that His plans for us is for a new day, a promise,
and our chance to remember He is the commander in chief of our soul.
With that, we are created anew and refreshed.  We may keep our dreams,
for those are what he gives us to pursue.  Dreams are like ships
floating captainless along the sea of our mind.  Dreams, waiting for
us to permit Him to come aboard to sail them into their port where
their reality will manifest. Ugonna, this poem was splendid!

This is musical and sublime; it reads like a long, euphoric sigh. Well done.
