The Dance

Keys of Ivory, ebony play
as the couple dance
Caught up in the eve so sweet
a beautiful romance
He takes her hand, gently guides
she smiles at him so
They twirl across the floor so free
neither wanting to let go
Love is there, its soft embrace
holding them so dear
Neither thinking of the past, the now
No future do they fear
Completely enraptured in their love
and forever never part
The sweetness of their lives, you see
will live on in my heart.

Further I slip from your grasp
Slowly falling into the depths
You smile as you say goodbye
I wonder what you mean
The waters close about my head
I feel that I can't breathe
My life flashes before my eyes
Dark, clouded images, full of regret
As I clasp my hand to my chest
My lungs, finally gasp for air
It is them I realize the truth
I am not the one who's drowning.

A deformed face
A familiar look
A different angle
A subtle approach
A silver coating
A brass frame
A beautiful image
A shattered dream
A mirror with two faces
A face with no name.

The Golden Compass

This is the first in the Dark Materials books by Philip Pullman. the movie is set to release in December of this year. The official websight is a blast, especially for people wondering what those animals are at the bottom of my blog. Just click on the image and it should take you there. Watch the trailer, read the book, and let me know what you think. For Harry Potter fans, you just might like it, too.

Heaven's Rapture
Hell's Gain
Earth's Sorrow
Sky's Shame
Ground's Opening
Grave's Closing
Death's Beginning
Life's Ending

Not myself
but part of me
Hiding things
I cannot see
The real me
Nobody knows
The person inside
No one can see
Masks abound
but who I am
Not alive
yet, feel pain
Cannot be
The real me
Hidden deep
inside my mask

Unknown entities
Night skies
Infinitely chnaging
Venturing Far
Emerging in Remote and distant lands
Remote and distant lands
Soaring, tumbling, gliding
Entites unknown

A world without end
in the midst of a storm
An eternity spent
but not a second scorned
A blissful oblivion
among the darkest night
An imagenation away
the switch of a light.

If you're a dreamer, come in, come in...

I just love Shel Silverstein, his poems make me laugh and laugh. If you have not read his books, do so. Here are some of the titles...Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. Great Books so look them up...

Artwork with Pazazz

This is just a little plug for I love this website. People are wonderful here and are nice to get to know. If you might be looking for wallpaper for your computer, or just wanting to hang out and chat. We will leave the proverbial light on for you. :))


D..eep within the ground I sleep
slumbering from the life I led
E..arth and wood they cover me
dirt spread from the ones I love
A..fraid to face the afterlife
only now I face the door
T..error surrounds my every thought
eyes glowing, teeth bared
H..aunting voices from my past
screaming, moaning, calling for my soul.

Oh sweet love enraptuing
in your folds do I reside
In your arms I cling eternally
Safely for to hide
Away from all the world's concerns
in you, I find my rest
Beyond the cares of mortal men
for peace, you are the best
No one can find me here
No one, my heart to break
Wapped inside this shell of love
A feeling, no one can take
Forever will I live inside
never more to roam
this wonderful, marvelous place
for which I will call HOME
