Loose Killers

Strike a bullet
In the chest of a human
And it's murder
Strike a bullet
In the chest of an animal
And it's hunting
One holds aggression
And questions sanity
The other holds normality
And questions nothing
Let me have you imagine
A human approach you
In the safety of your home
With a ready gun in hand
And have you not
Put up a front in defense
Why is an animals defense
For their lives
This world has become ignorant
We think ourselves the only
Ones worthy of living
And fighting for our lives
We live in fear of other nations
And the war they may bring us
May it never cross your mind
Animals have been in fear of us
And the war we brought them
Too many years back to count
We too are animals
Should it slip your mind
We are animals
With different habits
One of them -
Thinking murder is natural
Should you grasp this concept
You will somewhat understand
Hunters may be held to the same
Respect as serial killers
Both hold no remorse
For taking lives
Why should one deserve
A different merit than the other
-- F.D.D.

Gift of Life



Smoothing caresses of the night air embrace our tender -Cures-,
With -Cares- of a thought forthwith to relieve our minds with -Ease-,
Simply not to -Tease- the sense with unpleasant -Lies-,
Falling back on an acquiesce of mitigated -Ties-,
As does moonlight soar gently atop a raging water -Fall-,
After -All-,


Thusly committing to undisturbed seductions amidst abiding -Memories-,
Ensures a bond most faithfully held between two -Treasuries-,
A pleasing promise to an individual’s mirror of the -Mind-,
To cometh along ones truly acquainted -Bind-,
Presenting light to a world most devoid of -Unity-,
Is an result of soul and mind in a body encompassing -Purity-,
Of one’s own flesh and -Bone-,
Man brings to being a gift only he may -Own-,

I Need to Vent

Palms 37:4 ESV

"Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."
This year I have been craving adventure and traveling. I have always had the desire to go to Spain and study abroad during college; but college is so far away. I want to go now but I know the reason why I can't go now is because I'm not ready. I'm not ready to go out of the country. I'm not ready to get on a plane for the first time and by myself. I'm not ready to be on my own. I'm just not prepared. I see all these people from school going on trips even around the country that seem so amazing to me. They go to the mountains, the ocean, or even a cottage. 
I want to go. I want to get out of my comfort zone and just have fun. Meet new people. I need to get out. 
I'm not ungrateful I just need a change. I want to see the world. That may scare some people but I want to go. I want to slow down and take in the scenery and not stress about pleasing others and standards. 
I want to find myself. Because here I'm not me. I don't feel like I'm living up to my full potential. God has bigger plans for me and they're not fulfilled here. 
I don't know what's going on. My feelings have never been this strong before. Maybe God's working in me I don't know. I just need to figure it out. I want a plan. But I have to wait.
Everyone wants to travel but do I have the guts to actually do it? I hope so!

I know this isn't a poem but I just needed to get it out. Maybe someone will actually listen out there.

My Everything


And we saw each other

First glance – stunning

Never knew my heart could play

Until I felt it drumming

Smiles damned contagious

Conversation artfully lively

Time never flies this quick

What is this feeling thriving?

The beauty of silence so strange

Dawns an energy never awakened

Star filled skies dance around us

Insecurities temporarily forsaken






ambrosia's desire

naughty ramblings

I have not touched you in the place I'd like to be touched
I have no way to describe its clutch
You may think that place we'll go is too much
I think it's a high we deserve as such

Emotions we'll share are like no other
This love had been known to smother
But I feel your need to be my lover

My heart is slow to accept another
Remembering you blinds me to all others

To feel you close is all I require
To shift my heart and take me higher

This place is where I long to be
This place we go where we are we

Shadows of Love

Just a thought!

If the day had no sunlight and the night had no moon

And love had no room in our heart

We'd have fear in our eyes, when the tide failed to rise

And be destined to wander the dark

Alone in the darkness, left out in the cold

We'd surrender and give up the fight

Only love helps us cope, bringing glimmers of hope

And the Sun and the moon bring new light

Warming up in the heat, we rise from defeat

Shedding tears, from the blessings above

We have new hope in sight, from the ambient light

As we walk in the "Shadows of Love"

"Shadows of Love"                                "Love in Your Heart,

                                                                                  Lights the Way"

Picture Perfect Woman

Just a thought!

If all it took was a pretty face

The stars would send a prize

If a painting needed a sultry look

Van Gogh would paint your eyes

If a lighthouse ran on innocents

Your stare could light the sea

Ships would chance the breaking waves

To get a glimps at thee

If a perfect kiss was ever made

The French would love your style

They'd put your moistened lips on screen

And capture every smile

If lines on a body could yell,"Seduction"

Your curves would send out screams

My mind can only fantasize

And paint you in my dreams

Author's Notes/Comments: 

"Picture Perfect Woman"

"Huck and Jim"

Just a thought!

Olden days on riverways, you'd catch em' on a whim,

Rafting down the Mississippi, an odd sort, called, Huck and Jim.

Skirting rules and fancy free, they frolic in the sun...

One escaping a life of slavery, and the other on the run.

Chains can't hold dreams of men, searching for variety,

Every man is an island, seeking freedom in society.

Stories told by the great Mark Twain, bring us teary sighs and laughter...

Written down in character form, living happily ever after.

*Love Gets Me All The Time*


 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


Love gets me all the time

It never fails

No this isn't a line

To make you believe me I'll walk on nails


Once I decide I'm going to be alone

Be all by myself and cry

Once I decide I'm making my heart all stone 

Wishing that I could die


Love came around

And changes everything 

It pops up on me without a sound 

And God...Love he decides to bring 


It's charming

It's sweet

And so alarming

No one can beat

Love never seems to be harming 


Love just pops up one day 

Takes away the rain

Shocks me to the point 

I don't know what to say 

Love even takes away my throbbing pain


I don't know what I'm going to do 

But I'm very greatful

That love can be to me 

So true

And to treat me like I'm no fool
