When a Dryad cries …

… the bright red leaves
and the tree stands
in a pool
of blood

… forest green leaves
and the tree stands
in a pond
of heartbreak

… red and green leaves
and the tree stands
in a lake
of sorrow

There is no sadder song
than when a tree dies,
there is no deeper grief
than when a Dryad cries.

Old poem re-written
Dryad - A Tree Nymph/Sprite
At the table of eternal sorrow
sits a fool with a crooked smile,
faking interest in a world obscene
and feigning the mood of yesterwhile.
Couched over bent with quill extended,
he writes his heart with a bitter beat,
floating in the mire of a memory stained,
poised with nib to command the sheet.
Capering words form across the weave
with capricious intent and shadow play,
smoke and mirrors intersect and disperse
whilst his mind carries the story away.

Twin ancient pyramids
standing still we are
a mystery to ponder on
aren't we
jealousies hunts me though
ancient twin love
I am crazed a human in love
since I first looked at you
and with just one look
thats all it took
I fell madly in love with you
I guess I found a praying saint
poet teacher mine
I dreamed of making
mad passionate love to you too
you were irressistible
sensual carefree with a white
slanted mysterious smile
to die for and ayyy amor
how painful this is!
I imagined you Alien
owned in heart
and in another's arms

yes the rivering watterfalls of
earth swipped me down with
force just to drop me back
right into your ocean

I find you everywhere
in poetry mirrors too
you are wind near and far
my starry looking eys
are fixed
looking up ******!
in awe of these powers
connectimg us in mind in heart
everywhere I look there is you

guess bad luck is mine
such sacred true love found
to lose it again and again
sorry I blocked you
my only friend on earth
sorry I asked you to unmask
I am only human
most poets won't unmask

how painful to be fallen
just to stay pushed down
Ayyy aay your bending blue -green eyes bewitched me so
Ayyy ay what pain not to see them live except in mirrors
nymph sacred tree Dryad!?
how late i understood
that with you I had it all
and lost it all but this is earth

theres still heaven
there's more justice there
in the ballancing scales
meassuring hearts
inner core's true love
we are in the inside twins
and outside so much alike
you can't really ever hide
you are me and I am you
our innercores
and outer waves countenance thunderous laughters and all
we are one and the same
twinsouls flame soul
anxient pyramid wonders
never really part

no words left to write
only can say how
not all is a loss
"Inspired by
a great poetess
I admire
my twin mind to mind
my beloved
If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner
Take my hand
Or if you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I'm your man
If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I'll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver
Climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I'm your man
Ah, the moon's too bright
The chain's too tight
The beast won't go to sleep
I've been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
Ah but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I'd crawl to you baby
And I'd fall at your feet
And I'd howl at your beauty
Like a dog in heat
And I'd claw at your heart
And I'd tear at your sheet
I'd say please, please
I'm your man
And if you've got to sleep
A moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I'll disappear for you
If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while
Across the sand
I'm your man
If you want a lover
I'll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I'll wear a mask for you
