One More Time, With Feeling

( One of my unfinished songs )

One More Time, With Feeling

with a midnight, moonlit madness
and an unsuspecting way
you slipped in this world of sadness
and splashed colors on the gray
I was praying for redemption
I was music, undefined
needing melody and meter
from a heart in quarter time

(Chorus)

one more time, with feeling
you’re the song I’ve waited for
I’m the only one who hears you
I’m the light upon the shore
you’ve been much too long awaited
sing it loud and sing it strong
baby, one more time with feeling
there’s no way to sing it wrong

I have never stopped believing
In the love of ancient lore
or the grip of prom night kisses
and the hopes they’re given for
there’s been days of disillusion
there’s been nights of small regrets
still, the journey isn’t over
come and help me to forget

(Chorus)

one more time, with feeling
you’re the song I’ve waited for
I’m the only one who hears you
I’m the light upon the shore
you’ve been much too long awaited
sing it loud and sing it strong
baby, one more time with feeling
come on home where you belong

baby, one more time with feeling…
while I hold you all night long…

Patchouli

Patchouli

with a stick
of burning incense
I write love letters
in the sky
and watch them
float off
gracefully
to you.

so you might
wake to
the sweet scent
of love
and feel the
way it
smolders
deep inside..

hopefully
in love
with
you.

You Have Been My Pleasure

You Have Been My Pleasure

you have been my pleasure
though I’ve never kissed your face
drawing out the deeper feelings
framed in taffeta and lace
naming all the stars in heaven
catching snowflakes on your tongue
spreading wisdom of the ages
with a heart forever young

you have been my pleasure
in my late night bungalow
where I chase you through the moonlight
blowing kisses, apropos
stealing halos from the angels
too amused to even care
giving love a definition
leaving springtime in the air

you have been my pleasure
though our hands may never touch
I have held your welcome spirit
I have learned from you , so much
in another place and playground
I’ll be waiting on the swing
for your pieces of the poems
and the happiness they bring…

Testify

clouds rush past
on a silvery night
too busy for small talk
with the moon

late night expectations
and faraway smiles
from a land called “you”
I wonder..
does love really have a plan ?

so many sad faces
and unfulfilled dreams
compromised hearts
and tears in the night..

tonight, I’ll hold court
in the chambers of my heart
and testify
as an expert witness
that love
is always
innocent.

Spring… ( could be your middle name )

Spring…
( could be your middle name )

Spring could be your middle name
so sweet, so fresh and new
with love that plants new life in me
and feeds on thoughts of you
a sunkist flower in the frost
excited by the view
go spread your beauty in the world
as angels often do…

flame could be the word I use
to share the way I feel
the burning love inside my heart
that flesh and bones conceal
to light the way with trust so deep
and secrets all revealed
and pants of passion in the night
with kisses so surreal…

seasons come and seasons go
as lovers chase their dreams
and fall like leaves, from tired trees
to rapid flowing streams
lets hold on tight, with all our might
and weather every storm

spring could be your middle name
come close and keep me warm…

Spring Cleaning

spring

Spring Cleaning

I feel your desire,
your springtime supplication
the deal you made with Him
free and easy
uncomplicated
yet,
friendly fire
hurts just as much

I won’t move into your heart
unless you free up a room
and even then.,
I’d want to change the colors first
there’s too many shades of blue
and a little clutter
still remains

looking up
I could see the candlelight
in your window,
your hand on the curtain
wanting to come down
to meet me,
the last man on earth..
face to face.
