*You Don't Love Me Like You Use To*

It seems like you're slipping away

This thought could be wrong

I just want you to stay

Our love to be strong

 

I don't want it to be just about sex

Or who could tease more

I just want to hold you till next

I want you to adore 

 

You don't love me like you use to

Like the first day we really met

Then it's like you knew

You had our life set

 

Now it seems like you don't give

You don't hold me as much

Without you I won't live

All the time I want to feel your touch

 

Baby I love you too much to let go

So I hold on

I think you don't know

I hope when you figure it out it's not long

 

You are the only one for me 

There is no way I would leave

Can't you see 

What can I do to make you believe

 

I can't sleep at night

Knowing what I know

How can I make you understand

Your love I just want you to really show

If you're not here where is my heart

Suppose to land

 

I gave you my heart

It seems like you don't care

But everything is falling apart

Why are you so afraid to share

 

Your thoughts and dreams

Together with you would make me

So filled with joy

Together we would make a wonderful team

Someday in the future I'd like to have your boy

 

There is one source of love 

And you and I can cherish

The blue sky above 

If you tell me bye my heart wil parish

 

It's like you don't love me 

Like you use to

Inside my heart bleeds 

I wish you knew

That my heart..you is all it needs

The Race

One in front, two behind.
Two in front, one behind.
Look back -
There are many behind.
As a team or individually?
How shall this race be won?
The longer I run,
The longer the race goes,
The longer the finish line is in sight.
The longer it is in sight,
The closer it may be.
O my mind! How it plays evil tricks!
The heat on my head,
My body, my hands, my legs.
O how my chest beats
With thy heart trapped in its cage.
How can I bear this pain any longer?
How much further must I run?
How many more obstacles must I pass?

 

Closer now I get,
Many more, yea, I hath passed.
One passed, one more to block the way.
One trouble gone, seems another has arrived.
A burden is rid, yet another takes its place.
The impatience grows inside me,
Yet the humbler I feel
As my feet hit the ground
One by one.
One by one is how the race is won.
One by one, each second is gone.
One by one, each step closer to the finish.
One by one, each obstacle is passed.
One by one, each round is done.

Equilibrium

English poems

 

In solitaire:

our feet are laden; 

backs frail;

hands chilled;

hearts hasty;

minds muddled. 

 

We are strained,

irate,

desolated.

 

In unity:

our feet are light;

backs firm;

hands warm;

hearts calm;

minds clear.

 

We are soothed,

relieved,

relaxed. 

 

In solitaire we can exist;

in unity we shall persist.
