When Love Begins

 

Are We Meant To Be 1

I always knew that love would come find me someday
but never did I know that it would be you who was headed my way
you caught me off guard and took me by surprise
but you simply captivated me, the same way you do when I look into your eyes

Waiting…. (Republished with revisions)

Publisher’s note:  As you may know, I originally published this poem, written by me, in September 2011.  Recently, though, I’ve wanted to polish it up a little and take new, less muddy photos to compliment it.  This is my new effort, and I offer it to you, along with a brand-new framing story, for your consideration.  More speech on the details and other aspects afterward….

The Carnival is Over

(Warning:  picture-intensive, may take a little time to load, depending on your system)

The Carnival is Over 1

Say goodbye, my own true lover
As we sing a lover’s song

The Carnival is Over 5

How it breaks my heart to leave you
Now the carnival is gone

The Carnival is Over 10

More of the lyrics, and a video of The Seekers, after you turn the page.

To a Friend Estranged from Me

Topazia 1

Now goes under, and I watch it go under, the sun
That will not rise again.
Today has seen the setting, in your eyes cold and senseless as the sea,
Of friendship better than bread, and of bright charity
That lifts a man a little above the beasts that run.

Thoughts of a Resident Surfer, Looking for Entertainment

Here's to the Internet blog size

Here’s to the Internet!
Creation of universities
enabler of communications
storehouse of knowledge
repository of porn
facilitator of spies
playground of trolls
destroyer of newspapers
source of unending fascination

except for me

Ten million bloody channels
everyone shouting at the top of their lungs
to be heard
appreciated
loved
idolized
and commented on
and I can’t find a bloody thing to watch on Hulu

Hmmm
What’s this thing here…?
I think it’s called a “book”

Guess I’ll give it a go….

World Goth Fair 1 blog

demons got me stressing overtime
questions and doubts filling my mind
apprehensions and misconceptions
leading to momentary indiscretions
