Let Me Be

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother C.J. Chatham III

Let Me Be

I’m not ready to fall in love
because I’m not strong anymore.
There is a part of me inside,
that’s missing and now is lost.
Old memories just can’t be replaced,
no matter what you think they cost.
When I want to be touched again.
I’ll call and let you in the door.

I can feel your love surround me,
but, honey, patience is the key.
You may win my love eventually,
but for now, honey, just let me be.

Scale of Love

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Scale of Love

I weighed my heart yesterday,
and this is what the face of
the scale had to say.
It showed my heart was lonely
and very heavy.
It’s hands suggested that you stay.
I agree; it’s the only way for
this heart to get any lighter.

The Fifth Dimension

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

The Fifth Dimension

An invisible shield of light surrounds each living thing, a force field of energy which can be sensed beyond the ultraviolet light spectrum. This force, negative or positive, interacts with each other life form, including humans, to create a natural sense of acceptance or rejection.
These feelings, made from the vibrations of the fifth dimension, inspire the passions and emotions which fuel the events of our lives. The objects of my love for you are seen in three dimensions, but the source of my love lies integrated in the invisible world of the fifth dimension.
Your glowing aura has merged with mine, and we are together, even when we apart with the mystical electrical connections of the universe to keep our thoughts traveling telepathically. You know my secrets, and yours are mine moving silently in the fifth dimension.

The Only One

Editor’s Note: LSC member Rev. Paul Abernathy rediscovers his rock and roll past with a classic love ballad.  I wish I had his music, or may he just wrote the words.  He didn’t say.  If you have any musical talents for these words, let us know!  Send an email to contact@eliastobias.net and put “The Only One Music” in the subject line.

The Only One

Music intro

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
This is no teenage crush.
I’ve known you ling enough.
Your smile gives me a rush.
This is no silly love song
About an affair that went wrong.
I want to hold you for a long, long time.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
It’s the way it has to be.
You are the only one for me.

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
This is no teenage crush.
I’ve known you ling enough.
Your smile gives me a rush.
This is no silly love song
About an affair that went wrong.
I want to hold you for a long, long time.
You’ll always be more than a friend of mine.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
I will do anything to make you see
You are the only one for me.

Instrumental bridge with guitar solo

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
I will do anything to make you see
You are the only one for me.

Superstitions

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Superstitions

I remember when the old woman in black
translated the positions of the leaves of tea.
She said someone close cast a spell over me.
Since then things haven’t changed much,
even the way that I feel, and I wonder if
these magic superstitions can be real.
She was saying what I wanted to hear,
looking for signs of emotions I fear.
I’m waiting for the start of my bad luck,
while she has moved on, getting bucks from
those who want their future in their hands.
Steps made now determine where we stand.

Our Love Shared, Not Owned

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

Our Love Shared, Not Owned

I can be your woman, you
could be my man, and
we both could be lovers,
but I could not own your love,
nor could you own mine.
The only owner of our
moments could be time,
who steals them for his
own personal scrapbook.
We share our loves,
like the millions of fish
who live and die in the sea;
like the workers of the land,
whose crops feed them when
they don’t own the deed;
like the varieties of trees that
are homes to insects and animals
and plants who help us breathe.
If you owned my love, and
I owned yours, we would
possess each other’s soul.
We would fight for control.
This is a conflict only God
and the Devil need to know.
I can be your woman, you
could be my man, and
we both could be lovers,
but I could not own your love,
nor could you own mine.

The Key

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

The Key

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
Your love is the mystery,
and I’d like to know you more.
Your smile is that key
I have been searching for.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door”
is a line Dickens once wrote.
The words are on the floor.
They gather into a note that
will make you want me more.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
It’s hard to wait for the day
until you’ll see a such a poor
woman like me let me say
the words you’ll adore.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
Until then I’ll just live
on smiles you show more
and more as you give
me hope I can’t ignore.

“A very little key will
open a very heavy door.”
Let cupid’s arrows pierce
your rusty metal armor,
and put your heart near
one who loves you forever.

A Few Things

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

A Few Things

Do I work to live, or do I live to work?
I do know it’s hard to get up and go when
The sunrises each morning,
But I don’t like to get past due bill warnings.
If I wait too long, they take my car,
And without that I can’t go very far,
Especially when I need to go to work.
Material things shouldn’t be treasured,
But there are a few things I really need.
I work to live and live to work, but I
Hope not to the level of excessive greed.

The Difference Between Swords and Words

A poem from Karen Ladonnavich, the LSC’s newest member and also the organization’s first woman member.

The Difference Between Swords and Words

A swift sword helps create an empire,
soiled by the blood of those who rise against it.
The razor-sharp edge keeps people in line,
but over time the metal which supports the edge
loses its strength, and can no longer be trusted.
The edge can get dull, and be easily rusted.
The unity is threatened when the blade can break,
but a new, and more dangerous weapon can
be forged from the mold of the master sword,
and the harmony is restored among the nations,
who have no hate or strife among the people
except for ruling power which controls them.

The sword of the new generation tries to
keep the dynasty alive, but it really cuts down
every chance of successful reign since the
new blades dull even faster than before.
Violence will erupt, and the revolution begins.
Words of peace are spoken by a prophet,
and they are recorded for generations to believe.
Many are still hurt and killed by newer swords,
but the edge gives way to the words of life.
A new era begins with hope for the future.
