Redemption Song

I stand here amazed Lost in your gaze

Emerging from hell

In a delicate shell

You came and you saw

Just like the law

I gave you my soul

And it made me feel whole

One life

One chance

One kiss

One dance

I asked for some time

Tasted your wine

Looking to the sky

As the comet passed by

You came and you saw

Just like the law

I gave you my soul

And it made me feel whole

One life

One chance

One kiss

One dance

You waltzed by the moon

At the dark of the noon

Standing so still

My glass yet to fill

You came and you saw

Just like the law

I gave you my soul

And it made me feel whole

One life

One chance

One kiss

One dance

Poem: Writing

Back to back
The keys clatter
The words express
And nothing matters
The cactus by the window
Now turns to face the sun
The cat purrs as light escapes
Before the day is done
So writing and yet writing still
We express the thoughts inside
To continue on this journey
And let the words defeat our pride
The edge of authors roam beyond
The sense of wonder in what we write
The human spirit still does define
Our souls in black and white

Poem: Soul

I am the self-consumer of my woes
The bed of my depression
I am the heart of a life that beats
The seat of my regression
I am the hope that burns within
The heat of my transgression
I am the demon that tempts me still
The soul of my oppression
I am the man that will not give in
The hope of my suppression
I am the hands of peaceful fate
The well of my aggression
I am the smile on a face with tears
The deceit of my expression
I am the sin of empty thoughts
The redeemer of my confession
I am the clock of future years
The focus of my progression
I am the whole of a living soul
The core of my possession.
