Hole in my heart

Hole in my heart

There’s a hole in my heart,
And the pages in the past keep on turning.
The love that was lost keeps on burning.
I just can’t understand why
You don’t want me for your man.
I can’t live my life without you.

Things are not as simple as they seem to be.
It’s convenient to invent another reality,
But the past resurfaces eventually,
Since keys to memories remain daily.
Fingerprints on the scene are obviously
Evidence she did the crime convincingly.
Like a cake, layers of lies raise possibilities,
And suspects’ motives twist ironically,
So much, it makes for a movie mystery.
At the end, she walks away, innocently,
But that is never the end of the story.

There’s a hole in my heart,
And the pages in the past keep on turning.
The love that was lost keeps on burning.
I just can’t understand why
You don’t want me for your man.
I can’t live my life without you.

Things are not as simple as they seem to be.
Sign with a stamp, and enter automatically
A million dollar sweepstakes or lottery,
But the odds of losing are mathematically
Decided, and, of course, done legally.
The real winners are a strange minority.
Costs of winning transfer to the majority,
And the promotion is done effectively.
Business incomes increase exponentially.
There will be those who want things free,
But that is never the end of the story.

There’s a hole in my heart,
Yet love for my wife keeps on beating.
The pain I feel inside keeps on hurting.
I just can’t understand why
You don’t want me for your man.
I can’t live my life without you.

Things are not as simple as they seem to be.
Time and again, humans ignore history,
And try to extend their possibilities.
World resources are used inefficiently,
And many people suffer, consequently.
Aided with more machines and technology
Countries connect by a complex economy.
Governments try to work together politically,
But strengthen their power with the military.
Life would be better if we lived in harmony,
But that is never the end of the story.

There’s a hole in my heart,
Yet love for my wife keeps on beating.
The pain I feel inside keeps on hurting.
I just can’t understand why
You don’t want me for your man.
I can’t live my life without you.

Things are not as simple as they seem to be,
When it comes to relationships romantically.
Who we love or hate is found astrologically.
Teenagers deal daily with changes in puberty.
Feelings and emotions are expressed musically.
Years of childhood disappear dramatically
Birth rates are proof of love’s popularity,
And more marriages are mixed racially.
The definition of what makes a family
Is challenged in county court rooms daily,
But that is never the end of the story.

Things are not as simple as they seem to be.

There’s a hole in my heart,
And the pages in the past keep on turning.
The love that was lost keeps on burning.
I just can’t understand why
You don’t want me for your man.
I can’t live my life without you.

I’ve got to let you go

I’ve got to let you go

It kills me so
to let you know
I’ve got to let you go.

We’ve made such good memories.
We laughed so hard, we cried.
I’ll remember days like these.
and the times you were by my side.

But there’s one thing I must say,
It has nothing to do with you.
There’s a reason you can’t stay.
I’ve been too much a fool.

It kills me so
to let you know
I’ve got to let you go.

I’m not the person I seem to be,
and you don’t want the truth.
Adventures we had were great.
They brought me back to my youth.

You don’t need your happy life
to be intertwined with mine.
My world would cut you like a knife.
It is at the least, most unkind.

It kills me so
to let you know
I’ve got to let you go.

Are you related to George Washington?

Are you related to George Washington?

I remember when my mother did
some research in our family ancestry,
and she found out we were part of
hundreds related to George Washington.
I remember a picture of him, a young
surveyor’s son with the ladies,
a future father of America, a general
and president George Washington.
I’ve always liked history and this is a
fun fact to for me to know,
a connection to the man on the
dollar bills I use, George Washington.

Rainbow of Love

Editor’s Note: This is the only poem that my wife has written to and for me.

Rainbow of Love

My love for you is like a rainbow.
It’s a never ending circle of love
with you at the center of its existence.
The shades of the rainbow range from
bright to dull, as do my emotions.
They are bright and lively when you are near.
They are subdued, even perhaps dull,
when we are apart. The colors of the
rainbow reflect my passion for you.
My passion ranges from hot red,
Whenever you touch me, to cool blue
when we have to part. And like God’s
promise of the rainbow to all men,
for all time, let the rainbow be a
visual reminder to you of the promise
from my heart, to love you for all time.

To my beloved Mike: Patty

Night Becomes Day

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Kyle Morgan Stewart

Night Becomes Day

The hunter becomes the hunted
just as night becomes the day.
The predator’s killing instincts
are used to survive in their own way
when another views the hunter
as just another meal, it’s daily prey.
Despite this unique law of nature
man blends black and white into gray,
causing the balance of nature to
change, to be altered and sway.

I can feel the strong winds blowing

I can feel the strong winds blowing

It seems like I’ve been here before,
but really this is a new place to stay.
I’ve lived here nearly a year now,
and I think I should be on my way.
I’ve been on my own for a long time.
and no place has felt like a home.
I have a paying job, and a box of an
apartment I come back from work alone.
There are people I work with and know,
but their faces seem to be the same,
and whenever I leave here again,
I will probably forget their names.
I’m good at my line of work, and
I know just how to get along, but
there seems to be something missing,
like an ending to a fantastic song.
I’ve lived here nearly a year now,
and I think I should be on my way.
I can feel the strong winds blowing, and
the skies are turning cloudy and gray.

Midnight Mystery

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Rufus McDougal

Midnight Mystery

The city is being attacked.
The air raid siren fills my head,
yet no planes or rockets arrive.
Then I shut my alarm off and it
still continues with the same sound.
The radio and television are silent
since I decided to go to bed.
The sound is filling my head.
Then I find the annoying noise
is outside, just near the door
and it vibrates a dull roar.
The neighbor’s white Ford
has its horn stuck again.

Funny Picture

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Levi Jacobs

Funny Picture

All you see in this photograph is an image
made in silver or with color dyes.
But then you fall on the floor,
and I’ll always remember your laugh.
I let you see it because I thought you
wanted to be friends, but you lied.
It’s clear the insult was deep, and
my respect for you won’t last.
This is my lover and my friend,
and what I see and feel is mine.
I care for her, more than you can
know, and I will for a long, long time.

Waitin’ at the Bus Stop Blues

Waitin’ at the Bus Stop Blues

I got the waitin’ at the bus stop blues,
And the time wasted is not new.
I got the waitin’ at the bus stop blues,
but I’m glad I’m waitin’ with you.

Here we are again waitin’ on the bus.
I’m beginning to think they forget about us.
They are at least 15-20 minutes late,
and I really need to get to work today.
It’s cold when the wind blows on the street.
I feel the chill from my head to my feet.
I think it’s colder that it was yesterday,
and weatherman says winter is here to stay.

I got the waitin’ at the bus stop blues,
And the time wasted is not new.
I got the waitin’ at the bus stop blues,
but I’m glad I’m waitin’ with you.

Icy roads may have caused an accident,
and the door to the bus may be bent.
Then how am I going to get in, or maybe
the problems are just my imagination.
It’s times like this I wish we had a car,
but the money we make won’t go that far.
The kind of car I want costs too much,
then I have to buy gas, tires and such.

I got the waitin’ at the bus stop blues,
And the time wasted is not new.
I got the waitin’ at the bus stop blues,
but I’m glad I’m waitin’ with you.
