That Music

Music and


Bring me to a


Distant land

That always

Sways to a beat

And I want to dance

Till my blood runs dry

For that melody

Sweet hibiscus

Smelling roses

And tasting honey

To my ears

That is the joy

Of music

To me


I’d never thought of prayer

As an act of friendship

Or a sign of deep care

And love

But now I realize

How it points my

Heart to the right


And that is more caring

Than questions

Or flowers

I prayed to the

God of the universe

(Cause I have an in with Him)

Not really

But I do care about you

And have no way of telling you

So I pray for your saftey

And I pray you have wisdom

We still don’t know

Each other

Very well

So I am hesitant

To call you

Or write you a letter

God answered and said you are


For he heard me whisper

I know He thinks of my every need

And understands my anxieties.

I pray for you

When I think of you

Which happens more often than it


And I hope you will fare better soon

Night mare


I thought

And lifted hopes

From a small locket

Wrapped around my heart


My nightmares

Turned from dark and


To light and


The locket opened

With a push to the latch

Inside colors

Burst forth

Reds and blues

And many hues

That contained all my longings

And desires

I thought


My nightmare had stopped

But maybe it is the



Do I think of any thing


Do I believe in something more?

Yesterday I thought again

Of my love

Where are you cherished friend?

Where are your kisses and sweet

Candy kisses

I believe that I dream too much

Sometimes I think my imagining


My reality

For it will hurt

If you do not meet my expectations

But it will blow me away

If you exceed them

I cried that I will never find you

A lost, lost soul

Searching for friendship

And love

People say they married their best


Well I need a best friend first

Be my valentine

I have never heard

Because I never made any effort to

Look your way

Now the past is gone

And the

what if

Still hangs over my head

Longer than the summer solstice

I think too much


Dreaming of your smile

I am afraid to remember how you

asked me questions

Because I know I put too much


Behing it

Behind it

I will be hiding

Behind my dreams

Of a love so sweet

I never again need to

Taste the honey dew



It snuck up on me

Like it always does

Rats scurring in drainage pipes

I felt afraid to look ahead

But paralyzed to move backward
It wasnt as simple as

People make it seem

The darkness

The sweet sweet darkness of it

Makes me wish

I was dead too

Then I am there

In the sewers

Even before I knew

Like a lock with a key

I am opened by memories

Filled with thoughts 

That pervade my


And my love

My love

My love

You sing to me

Soft words

Raising up prayers in my defense

You sing me to sleep 

Lay in my arms

You chide

I must

For you have captivated me

I forget the dark dungeon

And see a

New dawn

My love

My love

My love

Wont you sing to me?

Story:rainy encounter 

I do not remember how we met

Or why we crossed paths

That evening

In the summertime

In the rain

My hands free about me

For I did not carry an umbrella 

You passed me by 

But turned

And offered me shelter

We both headed toward the glass doors

You grabbed the handle

As I said 

Thank you

I glanced at your eyes

To see gold sparkles

And fire cast browns 

In your beard

It took me by surprise 

That a gentleman 

Could be so handsome 

But a passing thought was all that

I allowed myself to give

For I knew lust could creep into my heart 

You said

Your welcome

In a calming way

That made my insides tense and shiver

I turned to leave

For staring would be impolite


You said

Do you work in this building?

I turned on my heel 

With a swish of the fabric

Faced the man tall and strong


I work here

But only on Wednesdays and Fridays

As a receptionist for the buisness on the 

Third floor

He met my eyes

Looked into my soul

And I in his

He offered

Allthough its crummy weather today

Why dont we meet here again sometime 

and enjoy a real walk outside

I work here everyday

In the buisness on the second floor

I took a moment

Considered my options

Who knew this would happen today?

What if he was a creep?

But I decided to have faith in humanity

And let the norms of society 

Proceed as usual


I said

I would like that very much.

How can I get in touch with you?

He smiles as me

With creased eyes and lips 

Hidden behind a warm blanket beard

I will give you my phone number

And we can chat soon

I didnt know if I should

Shake his hand

Or squeeze it tight

But in time

I told myself

The memories we share

Will allow for me to touch your

Eyes and kiss your lips

My hopeful friend


My friendship with you

Is something sweet

We talk about life and 


Justice and God

Our thoughts are free

And I am more thankful than


I read in my diary

A plea for a friendship

Real and deep

And I think I have been blessed

You have been changed by the spirit

And I have been changed by patience 

I pray our lives remain


And that we do not 

Drift apart

From the Lord 

We love

Say hello to my favourite movie

I love to sing along

And make believe 

That I am the princess 

The story is no suprise

For I know the ending 


And denouement 

Each passing pan

Makes me believe 

That I am the princess 

Of this story

I dont mind daydreaming 

I dont mind living somewhere else 

For I know the ending
