    Jemimer's wonderful poem inspired me to open a thread for anyone
    wishing to leave a piece of poetry, quote or song lyrics....any subject...
    sexy or unsexy....:)

    Please feel free to dedicate to someone "special" in your life...


    The following is a song by Kate Bush, one of my favourite song writers/
    singers....

    Its for anyone who relates to meeting and connecting with others in
    "cyber world"


    Deeper Understanding:

    As the people here grow colder
    I turn to my computer
    And spend my evenings with it
    Like a friend.

    I was loading a new programme
    I had ordered from a magazine:

    "Are you lonely, are you lost?
    This voice console is a must."
    I press Execute.

    "Hello, I know that you`ve been feeling tired.
    I bring you love and deeper understanding.
    Hello, I know that you`re unhappy.
    I bring you love and deeper understanding."

    Well I`ve never felt such pleasure.
    Nothing else seemed to matter.
    I neglected my bodily needs.

    I did not eat, I did not sleep,
    The intensity increasing,
    `Til my family found me and intervened.

    But I was lonely, I was lost,
    Without my little black box.
    I pick up the phone and go, Execute.

    "Hello, I know that you`ve been feeling tired.
    I bring you love and deeper understanding.
    Hello, I know that you`re unhappy.
    I bring you love and deeper understanding."

    I turn to my computer like a friend.
    I need deeper understanding.
    Give me deeper understanding.

    Someone very special wrote this for me several years ago. I hope you like it.

    Hummingbird

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Whip-wings at my portals whirring,
    Hidden tensions in me stirring
    As you bend your beak to sup.

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Ruby throat aswell with needing,
    Dipping deep to take your feeding,
    Nectar flows to fill it up.

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Probe the petals rosy, glist'ning;
    Tip your head aside as, list'ning.
    In your heart, you hear me cry ...

    Humming
    Humming
    Hummingbird

    Taste my soul and send it winging
    With the Siren song you're singing ...
    Take me with you to the sky.

    The Sadness Worm

    The green worm that lives in sadness,
    Wants to find a human heart.

    For it craves the taste of it the most.
    So very bitter the taste of sadness is.

    And no wonder.
    The bitterness is the worm you taste.

    Its bitterness is the poison of sadness.
    The sadness worm is made of it.

    A parasite that lodges in your heart,
    Eating and eating it all away.

    Each time you swallow bitterness,
    You swallow the sadness worm.

    It eats and eats and eats your heart,
    Until it is all gone.

    And only a lump of sadness remains.

    And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
    The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
    The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
    Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
    And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
    Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
    As dreams are made on, and our little life
    Is rounded with a sleep.

    The Tempest

    This is a song I sometimes sing in the session...

    I dedicate to all who are separated from their
    lovers, either by time or distance....:(


    Stor Mo Chroi (treasure of the heart)

    A stor mo chroi when you're far away
    From the home you will soon be leaving
    It's many's the time by night and by day
    When your heart will be sorely grieving
    For the stranger's land may b bright and fair
    Rich in its treasures golden
    But you'll pine I know for days long long ago
    And the one that is never olden
    A stor mo chroi in the stranger's land
    There is plenty of wealth and wailing
    Where gems adorn the great and the grand
    Where the faces with hunger paling
    When the road it is tiresome and hard to tread
    And the lights of their cities blind you
    Oh turn a stor to Erin's shore
    And the one that you leave behind you
    A stor mo chroi when the evening mist
    Over mountain and sea is falling
    Oh turn a stor and then you list
    And maybe you will hear me calling
    For the sound of a voice you will surely miss
    Somebody speedily returning
    A run a run won't you come back soon
    To the one that will always love you

    Moody Blues "Have you heard? "

    Pt. 1.

    Now you know that you are real,
    Show your friends that you and me
    Belong to the same world,
    Turned on to the same word,
    Have you heard?

    Now you know that you are free,
    Living all your life at ease.
    Each day has its always,
    A look down life's hallways, doorways,
    To lead you there.

    pt. 2

    Now you know how nice it feels,
    Scatter good seed in the fields.
    Life's ours for the making,
    Eternity's waiting, waiting,
    For you and me.

    Now you know that you are real,
    Show your friends that you and me
    Belong to the same world,
    Turned on to the same word,
    Have you heard?

    I wrote this for a female friend of mine a while
    back......she wasnt being treated too well by
    her partner...

    If I were a man
    I would grab you
    And wrestle you under the covers
    I would look into your eyes
    with a yearning
    that no one else could surpass
    and tell you
    what a lovely face and
    a**** you have

    If I were a man I would cuddle
    and kiss you to death
    and with my dying breath
    i would promise to meet
    you in the next comin life
    where we would be eternally
    lovers or husband and wife

    If I was lucky enough to
    have you in my arms
    i would hold you tightly
    and I'd endeavour to
    worship you forever and a day
    and then I would sing and play
    the harp for you sweet one

    But I am not a man (weep weep)
    though sad this may be
    and so you will never
    belong to me
    but I just wanted to say
    that if I could.......I would....

    cherish you

    I wrote this recently for two of my children. Ones that were taken from me and that I was told I can never see again.

    I sit here thinking of you
    Missing you with all my heart
    My children, my little loves
    You two were my life
    But then you were ripped
    From my loving embrace
    Strangers said we could never speak
    That I could never see you again
    But it doesn't mean that you
    Aren't with me each and every day
    You who are still in my heart
    You who are still in my thoughts
    Are always with me
    I still have pictures of you as babies
    And that will have to suffice
    Until I can see you grown
    I only hope that by then
    You will want to see me
    No one sees the pain I feel
    Nor hears the pain as I write these words
    No one sees the tears I shed each night
    After your sister lays in bed
    My heart breaks for your loss
    And I miss you more each and every day

    Reanimator by Machinae Supremecy

    Feel the life inside
    a remnant of the tide
    that raged within when you were still alive
    never mind the cries
    listen to the lies
    while we're waiting for the dead to rise

    while we wait for them to rise

    The world belongs to those
    who stand out from the rows
    of wayward and misguided silent souls
    History is shamed
    By people laying blame
    To everyone who doesn't feel the same

    the sun fades beyond the water as we bring on the night

    Sleep and fade away (tonight)
    Inside these walls we wait (our lifeforce drains)
    To change takes more than to remain
    Therefore we lay - back - in the comfort of our chains

    Sleep and fade away
    inside these walls we wait
    Wake up to the silence
    after judgment day

    "I fall asleep and fade away in the dark.
    Too tired to keep going,
    I want to remain this way. It's better to do nothing but wait.
    It's better to just being like this."

    Every time I look at you
    my heart skips a beat
    I wonder if you know, my love,
    that my heart is at your feet
    I leave it there for you to do
    whatever that you wish
    You could take my heart,
    and love me,
    Or just leave me in this bliss.

    One of my favourite Yeats poems....

    He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven


    Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
    Enwrought with golden and silver light,
    The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
    Of night and light and the half-light,
    I would spread the cloths under your feet:
    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

    What a fantastic idea. ,

    would love to add some of my other writings here, , and well dont some of the work I have read above is amazing.

    I looked in the mirror today and I saw
    A smile
    I didnt recognise it at first
    but it was there
    peeking from the corners of my mouth
    I turned away and looked again
    and there it grew
    a smile
    I wasnt sure
    But then I knew
    It must be there
    I looked in the mirror today
    and I saw
    A smile

    I felt for the first time today
    Happy
    I had to sit and think a while
    But Yes- I was
    feeling such a thing as happy
    I thought can this be true
    Unreal
    but No I checked again
    and found
    I was
    Happy

    dont say that tommorows coming
    i just wanna say that when this night will end
    for you my friend
    the fire will keep on burning
    I know that the wheels are turning
    close to me
    cant you see
    the fever inside mes raging
    I wanna know your darkest fantasy
    you and me
    the fire inside my heart calls out to you
    the fire inside my sould is waiting
    for you
    to come to me
    and rescue me
    and hold me
    tonight

    when the morning comes
    Im on my own again
    same old same old dreary life
    drives me insane
    i push that same old boulder up the self made hill
    I taste the honey, and it tastes a bitter pill
    but for tonight ill hold you in my arms
    pretend it lasts forever, revel in its charms
    look for that perfect moment
    write it in a song
    but for tonight its so close how can it be wrong

    i know the game im playing
    and ill never feel the hurt
    been playing so long now,
    my fingers I have burnt
    so when the morning sun,
    filters through the blinds
    the fun is over
    and I hope that you dont mind
    ill see you sometime maybe
    back in dreary street
    youll raise your head and nod
    and you smile real sweet
    but Ill keep on going,
    and maybe flash a smile
    the hell hole days
    but in the night I come alive

    I try to break this cycle
    try to change the rules
    i bring it on myself
    I know that im a fool
    but when the night comes
    rolling round again
    ill play the same old game

    see ya .. sometime... maybe
    things are just the same.

    Love your work Jem!

    This is one i wrote years ago when i
    discovered I didnt actually need any
    "uppers and downers".......

    For all Neptunians out there:-

    Naturally Stoned


    I am feeling naturally stoned
    my mind and body are honed
    into another orb and at times I cannot
    absorb this earthly plane
    but I suppose I am not to blame
    for Neptune and the Sun were
    in the same sphere when I arrived here
    to this planet earth
    and on the day of my October birth
    i oozed from out of my mother's womb
    after nestling gently in a safe cocoon
    i have been feeling out of my head
    since i entered this world
    my small pink body warm and curled
    reluctantly against my mother's breast
    and I swear at that moment
    i wisely guessed how difficult
    and painful the reality could be
    so from that day I decided to be
    in a state of unconciousness
    in a dream of my own
    and that's why I am feeling
    naturally stoned

    Never give all the Heart
    W.B. Yeats

    Never give all the heart, for love
    Will hardly seem worth thinking of
    To passionate women if it seem
    Certain, and they never dream
    That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
    For everything that's lovely is
    But a brief, dreamy, kind delight.
    O never give the heart outright,
    For they, for all smooth lips can say,
    Have given their hearts up to the play.
    And who could play it well enough
    If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
    He that made this knows all the cost,
    For he gave all his heart and lost.

    Day after day, I'm more confused
    Yet I look for the light through the pourin' rain
    You know that's a game that I hate to loose
    And I'm feelin' the strain
    Ain't it a shame

    Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away
    Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away

    Beginnin' to think that I'm wastin' time
    I don't understand the things I do
    The world outside looks so unkind
    Now I'm countin' on you
    To carry me through

    Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away
    Yea, give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away

    And when my mind is free
    You know a melody can move me
    And when I'm feelin' blue
    The guitar's comin' through
    To soothe me

    Thanks for the joy that you've given me
    I want you to know I believe in your song
    And rhythm and rhyme and harmony
    You help me along
    Makin' me strong

    Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away
    Give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away

    Oh-ho, ah-no
    Give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away

    Hey, hey, hey, yeah
    Give me the beat boys and free my soul
    I wanna get lost in your rock n roll
    And drift away

    Na, Na, now won't ya
    Won't ya take me
    Oh-ha, take me

    darker places I have seen
    blackened visions, bloodied dreams
    so i pull myself from harm
    from the wreckage to the dawn
    try to stand, up, appear strong
    hope that no-one catches on
    smile that smile, my chosen mask
    avoid their gaze and questions asked
    summer soon will warm my soul
    winters lingered far too long
    feel the cold may never thaw
    seems like nothings feels so sure
    but with each new step i take
    maybe ill get a chance to re-make
    fix what i undid, make new
    but time will tell if that is true
    and so although the burden waivered
    im learning only I can be my saviour
    so the wreckage left far behind
    serves as reminder of a state of mind
    so its up to me to stand up tall
    and weather through the darker storms

    I coudn't get through to my boyfriend's daughter that she meant something special to me so I sent her some flowers and a card in which I'd written these lyrics from the late Warren Zevon's song "Don't let us get Sick"

    The moon has a face
    And it smiles on the lake
    And causes the ripples in Time
    I'm lucky to be here
    With someone I like
    Who maketh my spirit to shine

    That broke the ice for us and we've been the closest of friends since.

    This was done about the person that I had thought at one time was my best friend. I have since found out differently.

    The tears flow from my heart and my soul
    To fall down the grooves they carve in my cheeks
    Will the hurt ever end?
    How does a heart mend?

    Your face haunts me night and day
    Your voice that once whispered to my soul
    Breaks my heart each time I hear it
    Will I never be free?

    When you talk to me now
    It is as if we are strangers
    You were there for me when I needed you most
    And when I need you now you aren't there

    You who were closer to me than anyone
    Broke my heart
    Broke my trust
    You left me feeling hollow....

    You made me cry
