Journal
SOMEWHERE OUT THERE AND D.A
Every time I make a journal it's because a generous or many generous hearts on D.A. have inspired me to keep going no matter what the day brings.  Lately my health has given me a hard time, but that's nothing new. Distraction is my best medicine and what better than meeting wonderful people and seeing things and places from all over the world. Tonight I'm posting the things I found this week. Perhaps they're by a friend because their talent should be shown, or work that has blown my mind. We are far apart, but many of us are close at heart.

Please sit back, enjoy and perhaps go check them out. Somewhere out there, you'll find what you need to get through each day. Smile at someone just because you can.  A peaceful, forgiving heart, lives much longer. I learned this lesson from my aunt who lived to be 91. There was no room left in a huge church when she left us.  Every day, I know she's still spreading her message.

Literature
I give up
I give up today
too many things have gone wrong today
the phone wont ring
no mail again
and no one to wakes me up with a gentle kiss
I had it all once you know
phone calls
mail
and kisses
but I gave it all up today
I grew tired of the wrong numbers
helpless souls reaching out to me,
but who am I to care
I have no concern if they needed me to hear
I don’t have time to listen anymore
I gave it up today
the mail that comes in force
free tune ups, take this card
your last chance to win
but who was I to care
I had no concern if they needed me to hear
I just don’t have time to read anymore
I gave it up today
the gentle kisses
soft caresses and love making til dawn
I had no concern that she needed me to hear
her gentle whispers of I love you
I just don’t have the time
so I gave it up today
lost in my world of silence
knowing I shall never try again

Literature
In the center of your soul
In the center of your soul
There is quiet water
In the center of my soul
Where I go
Too learn all that life has to teach.
There is a fragrant garden
In the center of my soul
Where I can go
When I am feeling weak to find strength
There’s a rolling river
In the center of your soul
An eternal  giver
With a rich and endless flow.
There’s a land of muses
In the center of your soul,
Where I could kneel and cry
And only the poor are free to go.
So remain with me, then
To pursue another goal
And to find your freedom
In the center of your soul.

Literature
my maddness
Who can love me in my madness?
Who will love me in my madness?
When the fearsome mornings come without warning
Bred from yesterday’s nightmares.
Who can love me in my melancholy of soft rains?
And the dull gray days?
I dare not tell the world who I am.
Patched together with frayed strings,
Fumbling, fearful, lost in yesterday.
Who will love me in my madness?
When you seek to lean on me
To glean from me strength
That yesterday I seemed to have?
When I’m sure that I have failed
And I’m not strong at all
And wanted to run away.
Soon my madness will be gone
And I will laugh every time I see the sun
But in those times of madness and fearful times
Who will love me?

Literature
Untitled
you are a lamb that walks with lions
you don't belong
they taunt
they try to slaughter
but they never stand a chance
for there exists a love in your heart
so strong
so pure
a will
Undaunted by temptation
that no matter how badly they maim
Against you
in the end
they are powerless in their fight
to possess even a wee part
of your soul
i am a dragon that walks with lions
i too don't belong
i dream of a land far away
i know is my true home
it bore to me the gifts i possess
my unquenchable light
my kindness
yet i still rage
kiss danger
yearn to rebel in the darkness
cause i can
i am free
lost
aching
alone

Literature
Untitled
Don’t leave,
I know that...
Sometimes at the first light of dawn when I waken,
All the fears of my life come to haunt me
And I turn from the love that I want.
I know that
Sometimes when I long to reach out and embrace you,
All the self inflicted pains from long ago rise to choke me
Cloaking me in anguish.
And I run from the love that you give.
I know that,
Sometimes at the first sound of life in the morning,
the tears of a shattered child swirl around me,
the flood of words never spoken rush to drown me,
And I turn from the love that I need,
So, Please, Please! Understand, when i face these fears
And run from the love that you give..
Please understand!
and Don’t leave!

Literature
Poetry V
I walked the same roads time and time again
Looking for love I never found.
When I chose the pseudo-strength that ultimately sought,
to control and destroy everything that I am.
When, that security became more important than my life and love.
I thought my life would carry no more meaning,
That it was too be a lifeless experience.
I learned to distrust all that was feminine.
I never knew such a love could have existed,
Gentle and fragrant beyond all words,
A dream I never hoped to realize,
Where, souls speak and performances end.
God sent you in my path,
When, all my patterns of blindness and need have been lifted.
When want and desire are gone,
And just me, myself was left.
Today I awoke, knowing that Love does exist!
And that the love that began so shyly,
so cautiously,
Was worth all the pain to find it.

MarMicheal's Profile Picture

Thom Massaro
United States
“I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains, deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know - unless it be to share our laughter.
We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide. Most of all we love and want to be loved. We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls; that will take us for what little we have to give. We do not want to prove ourselves to another or compete for love.

For wanderers, dreamers, and lovers, for lonely men and women who dare to ask of life everything good and beautiful. It is for those who are too gentle to live among wolves.”
― James Kavanaugh, There Are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves

I give up today

too many things have gone wrong today
the phone wont ring
no mail again
and no one to wakes me up with a gentle kiss

I had it all once you know
phone calls
mail
and kisses

but I gave it all up today
I grew tired of the wrong numbers
helpless souls reaching out to me,
but who am I to care
I have no concern if they needed me to hear
I don’t have time to listen anymore

I gave it up today
the mail that comes in force
free tune ups, take this card
your last chance to win
but who was I to care
I had no concern if they needed me to hear
I just don’t have time to read anymore

I gave it up today
the gentle kisses
soft caresses and love making til dawn
I had no concern that she needed me to hear
her gentle whispers of I love you
I just don’t have the time

so I gave it up today
lost in my world of silence
knowing I shall never try again
In the center of your soul

There is quiet water
In the center of my soul
Where I go
Too learn all that life has to teach.

There is a fragrant garden
In the center of my soul
Where I can go
When I am feeling weak to find strength

There’s a rolling river
In the center of your soul
An eternal  giver
With a rich and endless flow.

There’s a land of muses
In the center of your soul,
Where I could kneel and cry
And only the poor are free to go.

So remain with me, then
To pursue another goal
And to find your freedom
In the center of your soul.
Fragile woman,
so lonely tonight,
your wounded eyes appear so distant
as cold tears run down hollowed cheeks
I cannot dry them,
I cannot take away the hurt
I cannot give you my life
though I would to see you smile.
I will give you all that I can
and not make any promises,
I loved you enough, for you to trust me
to hold your loneliness in these empty arms
to love your fragility
to love your tenuous sanity
to create for you a world where you can be safe
You know im not your savior
my strength is gone
my chest aches
my will is broken
I wander just to survive
So tonight, you may draw back bit by bit,
for you my fragile flower,
tonight im here and I will stay,
until you dont need me
Then I will go,
wandering again
until you call for me.
So, dry your eyes
tighten your lips
and firm your jaw
tomorrow is life again
and one as fragile as you
will surly die, if tonight, I did not love you..
