Moonbeam Rays

My every thought of you is filled with joy,
emotions hovering at a boiling point.
You take my breath away.
I begged you to stay.
You fill my mind, my heart, my soul
you promised forever I’d have you to hold
but you found another.
Do you remember the time we shared?
we danced in love, we had no cares…
the stars were all on our side
between you and I, we had nothing to hide
do you remember the moon at it’s best?
the shadows that came from the moon’s bright light
I remember how it rested upon your cheek
the way the light played off your skin
help me to get over what has been
the best time of my life.
I can’t let it go….
the thoughts of you and I…
my heart breaks each time I look towards the Skyy…
we had fun… you and I…
come back.

Silence

In the space between talk……. and no talk,
in the moments before your left foot crosses your right – when you walk.
It’s the pause before you exhale,
it’s all in the moments when your mind is clear.
You know it’s true when your heart speaks to you.
When you realize that you’re happiest with none of the negative influences in your ear.
…..No one marking the things that you do,
…..no one trying to imitate—trying to be you.
It’s amazing the games that we all play …
.. the patterns one follows to be center on the stage.

why is it always that I find my cool breeze,
during the moments I spend on my knees
talking in prayer, thanking God for the insight – the ability to see
……what I knew in my heart as always been before me.

“it’s better to keep your enemies near”
– how else will you know what they’re up to..
“i don’t have to like you to get the job done”,
I’ll mess with your mind until the rising of the sun.

loyalty means nothing… when it’s all on one side.
commitment means nothing when you’re all full of lies.
strength is not displayed when you keep switching sides.

Like a mosquito that finds a juicy arm,
like a vampire attached to a vein on a neck,
I’m constantly giving….. giving….. giving
and all I get is regret.
for falling once again into a black widow’s net.

I’m through pulling at straws…..
my energy is restored in the silence of a pause.

it’s fun to harass the one who really cares,
it’s fun to get a rise of emotion

why not take a stand… and show YOUR devotion??

Whom have I in Heaven???

25 مَنْ لِي فِي السَّمَاءِ غَيْرُكَ؟ وَلَسْتُ أَبْغِي فِي الأَرْضِ أَحَداً مَعَكَ.

26 إِنَّ جَسَدِي وَقَلْبِي يَفْنَيَانِ، أَمَّا اللهُ فَهُوَ صَخْرَةُ قَلْبِي وَنَصِيبِي إِلَى الدَّهْرِ.

The last few weeks have been wonderful.

Next book on the list……

25 Qui ai-je au ciel, si ce n’est toi? Et ici-bas que désirer, car je suis avec toi? 26 Mon corps peut s’épuiser et mon cœur défaillir, Dieu reste mon rocher, et mon bien précieux pour toujours.
