Walt Whitman

LET us twain walk aside from the rest;
Now we are together privately, do you discard ceremony,
Come! vouchsafe to me what has yet been vouchsafed to noneĀ—Tell me the whole story,
Tell me what you would not tell your brother, wife, husband, or physician.

Accuracy is the twin brother of honesty; inaccuracy, of dishonesty.

Who is really inside?
When an old lady died in the geriatric ward of a hospital in England, it appeared she had left nothing of value.
The nurse, packing up her possessions, found this poem. The quality so impressed the staff that copies were distributed to all the nurses in the hospital.
This poem then later appeared in the Christmas edition of "Beacon House News," a magazine of the Northern Ireland Mental Health Association. This was the Lady's bequest for posterity.......
What do you see nurse,
What do you see?
What are you thinking
When you look at me?
A crabby old woman,
Not very wise,
Uncertain of habit
With far away eyes.
Who dribbles her food
And makes no reply;
Then you say in a loud voice,
"I do wish you'd try."
Who seems not to notice
The things that you do,
And forever is losing
A stocking or shoe.
Unresisting or not,
Lets you do as you will;
With bathing or feeding,
The long day to fill.
Is that what you're thinking,
Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes nurse,
You're not looking at me.
I'll tell you who I am,
As I sit here so still,
As I move at your bidding,
As I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of ten ...
With a father and mother,
And brothers and sisters
Who love one another.
A girl of sixteen,
With wings on her feet;
Dreaming that soon,
A lover she'll meet.
A bride soon at twenty ...
My heart gives a leap;
Remembering the vows
That I promised to keep.
At twenty-five,
I have young of my own,
Who need me to build
A secure and happy home.
A woman of thirty,
My young now grow fast,
Bound together with ties
That forever should last.
At forty, my young ones
Have grown up and gone;
But my man is beside me
To see I don't mourn.
At fifty, once more ...
Babies play 'round my knees;
Again we know children,
My loved ones and me.
Dark days are upon me,
My husband is dead ...
I look at the future,
I shudder with dread;
For my young are all rearing,
Young of their own,
And I think of the years
And the love I have known.
I am an old woman now,
Nature is cruel,
'Tis her jest to make old age
Look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles,
Grace and vigor depart,
There is now a stone
Where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass,
A young girl still dwells,
And now and again
My battered heart swells.
I remember the joys,
I remember the pain,
And I'm loving and living
Life over again.
I think of the years ...
All too few, gone too fast,
And accept the stark fact
That nothing can last.
So open your eyes nurses,
Open and see ...
Not a "Crabbit Old Woman,"
Look closer ... see "Me."
~ Phyllis McCormack ~
Can I see another's woe, and not be in sorrow too? Can I see another's grief, and not seek for kind relief?
~William Blake
Lauren you are in my thoughts & my prayers

I gave her gifts of the mind
I gave her the secret sign
Thats known to the artists who have known
True Gods of sound and rhyme;
Of words or tint I did not stint
For I gave her poems to say.
With her own name there and her own dark hair
Like clouds over fields in May.

Smiling:

I think of you
And I just smile
You make me happy
_it's been awhile.

You've helped me more
Than you'll ever know
You've changed my mind
And helped me grow.

I could hold out my arms say "I love you this much"
I would tell you how long I will long for your touch,
How much and how far would I go to prove
the depth and the breath of my love for you
From here to the moon and back
who else in this world will love you like that
love everlasting,I promis you that
from here to the moon and back,
from here to the moon and back
I want you to know you can always depend on promises made love without end
no need to wonder how faithful I'll be
now and on into eternity
from here to the moon and back
who else in this world will love you like that
forever and always,I'll be where you're at
from here to the moon and back
from here to the moon and back
I would blow you a kiss from the star where I sat
I would call out your name to echo through the vast
Thank heaven for you and to God tip my hat
from here to the moon and back
and I'll spend forever just proving that fact
from here to the moon and back
from here to the moon and back...

Flow My Tears

~John Dowland

Flow, my tears, fall from your springs!
Exiled for ever, let me mourn;
Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,
There let me live forlorn.

Down vain lights, shine you no more!
No nights are dark enough for those
That in despair their last fortunes deplore.
Light doth but shame disclose.

Never may my woes be relieved,
Since pity is fled;
And tears and sighs and groans my weary days
Of all joys have deprived.

From the highest spire of contentment
My fortune is thrown;
And fear and grief and pain for my deserts
Are my hopes, since hope is gone.

Hark! you shadows that in darkness dwell,
Learn to contemn light
Happy, happy they that in hell
Feel not the world's despite...

If I could grab the stars
I would send them to you
To put the sparkle in your eyes
So you would never be blue.
If I could draw a sunset
I would draw an awesome one
to set for you always
when your day is done.
If I could write a song
I'd pick one with that perfect tune
One to lift you up and Inspire "YOU"

I opened the letter,

it read......

Adrian,
I don't belong to you

You always seem to want me
And just take me at the most ungodly hours
I'm the mistress you need to make sense of the world

You spread me open
Forcing your face deep within
I ride the bridge of your nose
And wrap myself dutifully around your sentinels
gauging the waves as your temple pulses with each discovery of the unexplored yet familiar

You find shelter and comfort in my arms
because what others hear as the ramblings and mutterings of a crazy man
is a passion filled symphony between you and I
you the maestro
And I your baton

We see the world together
Changing the ominous
to the obvious

Yet

I don't belong to you

So please

Stop stroking my arms like that
Nibbling on them
And then expecting me to be on you

Complete you

But please

Baby please

Get your own pair of contacts

Because I don't belong to you

Romance.
Intriguing.
Non-believing.
Unreal.
Not necessarily necessary.
But damn good when it is.
Happy feelings, soft caresses.
Feeling your tongue linger there...
Then licking your way up from venus,
to my belly,
in between my breasts,
flitting licks up my neck
and pausing at my mouth.
Long deep kisses.
Not fucking.
Romance.
When these things happen,
I crave penetration.
I want you deep inside me,
in more ways than one.
But I am afraid,
I don't want to let just anyone in.
If it's just a romance, fine,
but don't lie!
I just want hot, wet, sex!
Hard and fast
then soft and wet.
Caress me, possess me
bring me to ecstacy!
Crave me, enslave me.
Bring me down to my knees
so I can please you orally.
I want to taste you, to taste it.
To suction the erruption
deep in my throat
I want you to watch
as I trace my fingers down my throat.
Who knows what feelings
this will emote?
Is it hot,
way sexy...
Or does it make you want to cry?
To let loose a piercing scream
and not know why...

He used his talons as his lifesource
Not only to embrace those lifegiving nutrients
But to fend off the unwanted.
She was fair-- in no way meek,
Her body was a temple of the goddess, Worshipped.
Rarely did she speak of evil,
Oft she spoke of love, demanded respect.
He saw her across the room
Large woman, Huge smile
Eyes piercing his soul.
He could not escape.
The refuge he sought was in her arms. Just out of reach.
Her eyes invited him over
Her words, welcoming, offered the seat beside her
He sat at her feet...

Etchings on the wall
Reminded her of the past.
Her hopes, her dreams.
She was willing to be worshipped,
Tasted, Savored.
He knew what he wanted --
Her body and soul.
The tactile embrace of
Lips on skin,
Hands through hair.
He moved to her feet,
Removing each shoe delicately,
With purpose.
Intensly, he lifted each foot to his mouth.
He sucked, he savored.
He wanted this.
A woman at peace in nature.
Draped in the silk of the goddess,
She was embraced, taken.
Captured.
His kiss lingered.
She saw herself in his eyes.
Bathed by his tongue.
Electric.
Connected.

I fall , I rise, I make mistakes,
I live, I learn, I've been hurt,
but I'm alive, I'm human,
I'm not perfect but I'm thankful....
