The Edge

The Edge

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.

Reason to Dream

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

Reason To Dream

Some say dreams are for those who sleep,
but when they wake up to the morning, the
thoughts created in the night are forgotten.

I say dreams are for those who have a need
to live for more than just another day, and
they have a reason to look forward to tomorrow.

Pocket your dreams

Pocket your dreams

Pocket your dreams.
Then they are within reach of your hands.
You can have a chance to get a hold of
your dreams when the opportunity knocks.

If you put your dreams on cluttered shelves
in the closet of your mind or the wandering
the hallways of your heart, the time to
use your dreams may be gone before you find them.

Like loose change, the dreams my fall out of
your pocket, but that is the chance you
take for being ready to live.

Love’s Only a Game

A poem by Brother Levi Jacobs

Love’s Only a Game

I’ll leave it all up to you.
I’ll do what you say.
You make the decision.
It’s better that way.
We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

I’ll leave it all up to you.
I would like you to stay.
I could forgive you.
We can start over today.

We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

I’ll leave it all up to you.
We were one of a kind.
Feelings have gone now,
You need to draw the line.

We used to be special,
but now, nothing is the same.
It thought it would be forever,
But for you, love’s only a game.

A Woman Falling in Love

A Woman Falling in Love

There’s a quickness in her step.
She knows what she wants to do,
And where she wants to go.
When his name is mentioned,
You can see her face glow.
She is a woman falling in love.

There is a sudden smile,
A silent sparkle in her eyes,
Then a happy grin on her face.
There’s a certain look about her
As they meet at a certain place.
She is a woman falling in love.

She changes her style of clothes,
And does something new to her
Hair In anticipation of lovely gifts.
Mere presence and conversation
With man she loves gives her a lift.
She is a woman falling in love.

She lives for the moments that
Become her memories of the past,
And plans all part of the game.
If the affair should ever fall apart,
She’d be broken-hearted just the same.
She is a woman falling in love.

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.

The Kiss of the Spider

The Kiss of the Spider

At first you go because of the love of the game,
but then you get stuck in a web of lies and blame,
and then the kiss of the spider causes you pain.
The hurt feelings can slowly drive you insane.
You look around and other wrapped victims remain,
The size of the spider looks bigger; you’re the same.
Unable to escape, your level of resistance drains.
There comes a time where you forget your name.
Beware! You should carefully decide and think
before the Devil offers you a very special drink.

Lonesome Heart


Editor’s Note: Other authors may have poems or even book titles with this same title. but this version is from Elias Tobias.

Lonesome Heart

I know that you want me,
but you can only have half of my heart.
That is all I can give.
I know that you love me, but I
need the rest of heart so my soul can live.

I see the pain in your eyes,
and I have to look away.
My mouth starts to open,
but there’s nothing to say.
Things could’ve been different,
They don’t need to be this way.
The sun will rise again tomorrow,
and bring with it a brand new day.

I know that you want me,
but you can only have half of my heart.
That is all I can give.
I know that you love me, but I
need the rest of heart so my soul can live.

You are allowed to remember,
but it’s hard living in the past.
You try to start something new,
but it never seems to last.
You try to reach for the light,
but it is always hard to grasp.
The clouds you find in the sky
make the weather report overcast.

I know that you want me,
but you can only have half of my heart.
That is all I can give.
I know that you love me, but I
need the rest of heart so my soul can live.
