"Just The Way.You Are" (c)-2017
Poetry By Michael D Dowdy


I love you , just the way you are
with all your faults & sins
I'm not sacred off  (by your rebellious attitude)
I'm not worried about  (your past  mistakes)
I'm not going anywwhere- (except into your waiting arms)
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are


Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are




I'm not perfect, and i know
yes, ive known it- neither are you
we have our emotional scars
we made plenty of mistakes
we have our fair share
-of sins & regrets
we have both  been-(torn to pieces)
by  family ,friends & lovers
i dont understand, why we even bothered
-to try to reach out to them
when they refuse to treat us, respectfully
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are



Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are



Ive seen the best of you
Ive seen the worst of you
you have seen (the best of me)
you have seen (the worst of me)
i love you baby
just the way, you are
and i know, you love me too
just the way, i am
just the way, i am



Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are
and i know, you love me
just the way, I am
just the way, I am


Ive been torn into pieces
Ive been ripped to shreds
for my past mistakes & sins
Ive been rejected
Ive been disrespected
ive been abused
and taken- for granted
too times, for far too long
never feeling like i belonged
except by you, my darling
yes, i know, so have you!
I love you baby, yes i do
just the way, you are
just the way, you are

All the years Ive invested in our relationship
Now its just a sinking ship.
Everything Ive given, tried as hard as I know how.
All weve done and we still cant work it out.
She calls on the phone, Hear the steady drone.
Havent heard from her in weeks.
Where are you?
Are you sleeping with some other woman?
I told her if she acused me again then were done.
I cant do this anymore, its not fair to eather of us.
Its not fair to her.
All I gotta do is get a job and a place,
then everything will be back to normal.
But Ive had the job, the place to live, Ive given all I know to give.
There must be something more I can do, I cant hit the floor, I cant loose you.
I am, I have, its to late.
My mistake of the past of come to haunt me here, this is all a lie, I cant hold on, its all gone.
Cant loose you, cant loose me. If I loose me dont know what I will become in here.
Let me show you whats in here.
Let you know my fear, let you see my pain.
Though I tried in vain, tears fall loike rain.
Cant stop this love in my heart for this dove for whom I fall apart.
Though the years Ive come to know her fears.
Through the time Ive come to do the crime.
No matter what I say its the same everyday.
No matter what I do its all the same to you.
Through hers fears Ive come to taste her salty tears.
Through my life Ive come to cause her strife.
No matter what I know I cant ever go.
No matter what her gain I still cause her pain.
Even though I cant hide I still have to face my pride.
Even though I cant run still gotta stick to my gun.
I said the vow now I gotta figure how to make it work feel like such a ****.
Who am I trying to fool, who am I trying to school.
Cant tell me a **** thing Im allways rite.
My whole life is just a lie and Im allways wrong.
I know that now yet somehow Ive got to rite the wrongs Ive caused to those I love.
Knowing Im wrong doesnt make what Ive done rite and it dont make it none the easier for her.
I wrote this back in 2005 so dont no one go reading into it what aint there. You all know who you are...

my entire life all ive ever wanted to be is loved
to be held
to be cared for
to be wanted
my entire life all ive ever wanted is someone i call my own
to share memories
someone to motivate me
someone to push and inspire me
my entire life all ive ever wanted was to be apart of your life
to make you smile
to cuddle an snuggle an hold eachother
to grow old together

my entire life i have never been love
ive never been held
ive never been cared for
ive never been wanted
my entire life ive never had a woman to call my own
ive never had anyone to make memories
ive never had a woman to motivate me
ive never had a woman to push me or inspire me
my entire life is wasted you dont want me in your life
ive never gotten to make you smile
ive never gotten to hold you an snuggle an cuddle with you
im growing old alone

this pain in my heart is killing me slowly
i have no motivation
i have no inspiration
ive lost all desire
i dont see any escape
wishing it was me that put that smile on your face
praying you come home to spoon
im dying alone

i thought you cared for me
i thought you loved me
i thought i made you smile
i thought you wanted me
i thought you needed me
i thought wrong
my heart is broken
my life is ruined
i have nothing to live for
my life is over

i dont know how to continue
i cant picture a life without you
im stressed sad and a nervous wreck
i have no more tears to shed

make this easy for me
load the gun an pass it to me
hand me the gun so i can rid this hurt
hand me the gun so i can blast my brains
im beyond repair

im not suicidal
im tired
tired of being unloved an alone
im going to die a ******
im going to die not knowing what its like
what its like to be appreciated
what its like to have someone there for me
what its like to be hugged or kissed

a vision of you with me is my demise
i thought it was my upbringing
i was wrong
what a waste
i cant believe it
i have been played
i have been fooled
i have been cheated
i have been robbed

as i lay my head down on this pillow
as i bury myself in these covers
know one thing
the fact is
ive lived a life without being loved
my life just ended
thanks for wasting my time
let me soak in this regret
leave me be

i will never find peace
no faith  prayer or apology can save me
im done trying
i give up
you win

sorry for loving you
im here if you care to change my mind
otherwise
im shutting the world out
dont wake me
goodbye
my demise

Changed

In just one year,
My life has changed,
I havent started over,
But ive been rearranged.

I thought that I loved,
But it was a lie,
and then it was over,
and I said goodbye.

Ive met new friends,
and lost old ones too,
They come and they go,
Like people always do.

Ive changed my outlook,
On God and on fate,
Ive lost some issues,
And ive gained some weight.

I tried alcohol,
Hard liquor and beer,
It cost me someone,
I held very dear.

Ive lived through some things,
That could have knocked me dead,
If it werent for someone,
Who had a level head.

Ive taken risks,
Despite my heart,
Ive felt my world,
Get torn apart.

I laughed so hard,
I rolled around,
In my pjs,
On the ground.

Ive missed some people,
Theyve missed me,
Ive seen some things,
I wish I could unsee.

My life has changed,
In just one year,
Ive been pushed away,
And drawn in near.

I didn't realize,
But now I see,
That all this change,
Is good for me.

But that's not his name.
He really doesn't have a name.
For starters no name could even hint at what he means to me.
No name could get anywhere near his sheer visceral naked beauty.
No name could delineate the slim ripple of his muscles.
His beautiful stiff ****--oh so suckable and lickable.
No name could hint at the smell of the dried **** on his *****.
No name could begin to describe the taste of his warm fresh ***.
No name would fit the feel of the shaft of his perfect stiff **** in my fingers.
No name could describe the shade of lavender of his exposed **** head.
The way his **** head fits in my mouth.
The feeling on my tongue as I slide it along the full length of the shaft of his stiff ****.
I call him Ben.
Weve travelled the world together for nigh on 29 years now.
Ive ****** his **** in ,my imagination on most continents,as ive laid in the same room tossing myself off imagining being ****** by him every night and during every day..
Ive licked his *** filled ***** in Bangkok and Delhi and London and Amsterdam and Barcelona and Deia and Kathmandu and Bodh Gaya and York and Paris and Dharamsala and Amravati and oh so many other places.
Ive swallowed litres of his warm fresh ***.
Ive rained typhoons of kisses on his upturned face.
Ive tossed him off to ******* too many times to count.
Ive loved him endlessly.
I call him Ben .
His diamond sharp intellect.
His smirky smile that lights up his face.
His oh so tasty tongue flickering in and out of my mouth.
Licking my lips--wrestling my tongue to a standstill.
The taste of his saliva --like the sharpest sweetest nectar.
His arms that wrap themselves around my nakedness.
His hands that never fail to connect to my *****
no matter how dark the room.
His fingers that tease and ****** my throbbing testicles.
My lovely boyman--my lovely lover.
I call him Ben.
His fingers wrapped around the shaft of my stiff ****
like ivy on an ancient wall.
they seem to grasp my ***** member so deeply
its as if they live below my skin.
I call him Ben.
When I kneel in submission to him and lick his *** filled *****
I am elevated into the land of adjectives and superlatives.
When I cringe servilely at his feet licking the full length
of the shaft of his oh so stiff and perfectly shaped *****
I become just a tongue tasting his dried ****.
I call him Ben.
Oh I so love and adore the taste of his dried ****
coating the lavender helmet of his bell end.
When I slide the whole of the head of his hard *****
between my lips filling my mouth completely
I am turned into a human shaped jelly quivering
with the anticipation of swallowing the cream of his pre ***
flowing out of that divine slit.
I call him Ben
When his naked hips ****** his stiff **** down my throat
I feel divinely graced with unconditional love
and I realise he owns me.
I am his ****.
I am his Slave.
I await the whip.
I long for the sharp sting of the lash.
I need the tender chastisement that only Ben can give me.
I call him Ben and he is  my Master.
He tells me stand with my hands on my head
and I immediately comply with his order for I am his Slave.
His very own *******.
There to give him the pleasure he gets from whipping me.
There to offer all parts of my nakedness to the whip in his hand.
Why is Sado-Masochistic love with Ben so lovely?
Why is the pain of his whipping so soft and gentle and tender and stinging?
Why do I stand with stiff **** jutting out and ***** dangling
begging him--beseeching him to take advantage and whip it as he does?
Each stroke of his whip making my **** **** and bounce and sway
turning it red and so mildly painfull?.
I call him Ben and I love him.
Ive loved him for 29 years.
But alas he does not love me unconditionally..
When we are together he humiliates me and I love him more--for his weakness in being the Slave of the Mind and Conditioned Identity.
I love feeling inadequate when I am near to him.
I want him to humiliate me.
To be humiliated is to be humble.
I do not care what people say.
I love him.
I call him Ben.
But oh how I wish wish wish that he were like me.
Mindless and Conditioned Identityless.
He could be such a nice guy if he weren't such an *******.
Well ive been down and ive been out
And ive been a couple places I don’t like to talk about
Yea im mostly sober but sometimes im not
It don’t bother me what you think
I learned not to care a lot

ive lied to cheaters and ive cheated lovers
but I hold the ones that I love close
my best friends are like my brothers

I want to love you want you to love me too
But I’d have to destroy this distance yea
And that’s a **** hard thing to do

I saw the devil dressed up on tv
Askin me to send him money
like he gave a **** for me

then I saw jesus down on the street
gave a starving man everything he had
and he walked off with bare feet

ive cursed in churches
and ive prayed in bars
seen my share of real bad things
and ive earned a couple scars

ive made some mistakes
you know you have too
but you live and learn
or crash and burn
don’t think it wont happen to you

Ive is love.

Her smile is most precious when you see it for yourself

Ive is life.

I love the way my eyes immediately find her in a room full of people

Ive

Every time I catch a glimpse of the angel with the beautiful hair, my heart rate accelerates.

Every time I win the lottery and get rewarded with the chance to smell the pure, indescribable fragrance of her blessed hair or her perfect body, every cell in my body yearns for more.

Ive

I love the way, without practice, my mind automatically puts me in a good mood..making me smile when I think of her.

Ive is life.

Her eyes are the most lovely when you pay attention and listen to the song they sing.

Ive is love.

All my life, ive been waiting for someone to love me
more than anything else
All my life ive been waiting, for someone to hold me
And make the tears go away
All my life, ive been waiting for someone to kiss me
And make me dizzy
All my life, ive been waiting for someone with a smile like yours
One that can light up my world
All my life, ive been waiting for someone, who knows me
and love me for me
All my life, ive been waiting for someone who can make my day
by saying three simple words.
All my life, ive been waiting for someone, to make me laugh
ove the silliest things
All my life, Ive been waiting for someone caring
Someone who really cares for me
All my life ive been waiting for someone patient
Patient enough, to help me through it all
Baby, all my life, Ive been waiting for you

heart breaker
Katie Aug 2015
ive always been a heart breaker.
but not in the sense this word is known for.
this kind is different.
it has nothing to do with romantics,
just my own personal feelings.

ive always been a heart breaker.
it first started when i told my mother id been bullied.
i told her id never go back.
i cried and explained i was miserable.
it broke her heart knowing i was in so much pain.

ive always been a heart breaker.
the second time happened two years later.
my mom caught me and friends drinking.
she was so proud of me until that night.
the betrayal of her trust broke her heart.

ive always been a heart breaker.
fast forward six months.
my boyfriend at the time found out id been abusing pills again.
id been clean almost 9 months.
it broke his heart knowing he couldnt do anything to help.

ive always been a heart breaker.
now june 2015, the 12th to be exact.
i get the news one of my best friends has passed.
i collapsed into my mothers arms.
my pain broke her heart.

ive always been a heart breaker.
august 8th, 2015, my dads birthday.
another friend of mine has passed away.
the people with me, and the people ive called.
i broke multiple hearts this night..

ive always been a heart breaker.
sometime last week.
i told my mom i needed help.
i couldnt contain my anxiety another minute.
i broke her heart for the fifth time.

ive always been a heart breaker.
but not in the sense this word is known for.
its something ive come to believe is inevitable.
its always the ones closest to you,
with the most fragile of hearts.
Ive found a love that only gets better,
Ive found a love that will last forever,
Ive found the one that feels just right,
Ive found the one who holds me tight,
Ive found the one that gives me light,
And it will last forever,
Ive found a love that never fails,
Its a love that will prevail,
Ive found the one that holds me close,
Its a love like an overdose,
The times are tough,
It all seems impossible,
But ther was one thing we knew,
We seemed to pull through,
Ive found a love that only gets better,
Ive found a love that will last forever.
I love you

— The End —
