If you have forgotten water lilies floating
On a dark lake among mountains in the afternoon shade,
If you have forgotten their wet, sleepy fragrance,
Then you can return and not be afraid.

But if you remember, then turn away forever
To the plains and the prairies where pools are far apart,
There you will not come at dusk on closing water lilies,
And the shadow of mountains will not fall on your heart.
Ode to a Poet(writer)
I know you,
All alone
4am is when you feel most at home.
I feel you,
Blank page, full pen,
I see you,
Looking at a page waiting for a tale to unfold,
When it starts, it flows,
I am you,
Hiding away, writing my pain,
Escaping reality,
Day to day,
We are art,
In the way we move,
We are the dreamer's and believer's
Pad and pen in hand til our dreams come true.
C. Tyler
So much truth was found
out of a million lies
and out of many truths
so much more lies
were discovered.
*It was hard to sieve one from
the other for there
was a very fine line
between them... and
So fine both were ground.
I get lost in your kiss
                   Yet feel at home on your **lips
Like the sunrise
I want your first smile in the morning-
Your last thought before your eyes lie across the horizons of your skies;
I want your sunset.
I want your mind set
Fastened next to mine on the next jet departing to the next dimension.
I want to tell you
How you make me feel
Nervous and comfortable
Stronger and weaker
I want to tell you
That now I see the world through your eyes
That when you smile, my heart stops
And then it beats so hard I lose my breath
I want to tell you
How your hug makes me lose myself
How the taste of your lips makes me drown
I want to tell you
Your lips are my sips of cold refreshing water
And again and again and again
I want to drink...
I want to feel the skin beneath your clothes
I want to feel your heart beat against mine
I want to spend more precious minutes with you
I want to say "I love you"
Although logic protests
When you pull me close
Everything makes sense
Everything is brighter
Everything is clearer
Everything stops....and appreciates the magic here
Between us
The sparks
The change in me
The hurt turns to beautiful scars under your caresses
My flaws glow with character under your adoring gaze
My faults are mere bumps in the road
Everything adds up now
This is who I was born to be
The girl whose hand you pull to your chest
The girl enchanted by all you are
The girl blushing for you
This is where i want to be
This is the beauty I sought.
