    Evil’s Romantic Notion

    A lion’s breath sees evil waiting,
    frosted by the windows paling
    Waiting crouched and ready still,
    for evil from your mouth to spill

    Awaiting a closely quarted malice,
    inside the place you hold so deep,
    Deep in your heart, yet you frighten
    Fear enact by love,
    yet frightened by what love means

    Growing yet more fearful,
    by the thoughts of what will be,
    you cannot help but feel the forces
    evil as they seem attractive, take it
    for it is the form of what will be

    Inescapable the love and fear,
    like a poison drank and not yet treated
    Intoxicating, debilitating,
    patiently waiting to ease the pain,
    flowing in your blue line vein

    No movement dare you take,
    whilst the lion lies in wait.

    How so simple?
    Oh so pure!
    Through the passage of time
    I shall endure.

    I am a cousin, of love's true light.
    In the sleep of the night, I do what's right.
    Please say my name.

    I am silent,
    so meek so mild
    accused by a lie
    I walk in captivity

    Free me now
    Say my name!

    The first day of summer rain


    So hot today
    The fire is
    There are two steps to the left foot
    This is not tolerated ball of fire
    Oh God, what havoc your
    What did forget to tell us
    Lead with hot air
    Dry throat from thirst
    Looking for water
    May not be far
    Froggy the singing
    May God be pleased
    Drum only at Ngare on the sky
    Clouded sphere
    Come rain come snow, wind and water the sky
    Weather was cold so
    Occurs mostly in winter as
    Still remember the day
    The first day of summer rain

    The Ghost
    By: Adam M. Snow

    In this world I sought for,
    who I am and many more;
    without a reason but a treason.
    I without a life, but with a life and none;
    to live is profound, much greater is death.
    If I could confound, it is that I'm not worthy
    for life and for death.

    Do I confined myself within my chamber,
    to count the days till I remember?
    Who am I?Who am I?

    Who am I to curse myself so freely, so easily?
    A ghost with a reflection,
    with no hope, no resurrection.
    I encumber my tears
    with all things I fear,
    there is no end for which I dream.

    The glory of heaven fills my heart, A heaven of heavens, The glory of all glories. A city whose builder and maker is jehovah. A home filled with treasure of treasures, A kingdom whose gates and stones are made of gold, A palace where flowers dwell in glory, A city where neither pain nor sorrow exists, A glory not compared to the things of this world. A city of all valuables. A kingdom where love and peace is felt, A refinery where the spirit of man is refined in the glory of God. Who can ascend into the hill of the lord and access his glory? Who can stand in his holy palace and feel his glory? He that have a clean and pure heart, He whose hands are not soiled in evil. He that speaks no guile with his mouth. He whom the lord inputeth no iniquity, He whose soul is not lifted in vain glory. A city so wounderful, a home of other homes. A palace from which palaces are born. Let the glory of this kingdom engulf me, And grant me entrance to it's beauties. Until then, when there shall be no more earth. When all that matters now matters no more; The glory of this kingdom shall preserve me, Keep me blameless until his coming, When his glory shall shine upon me and l be lifted up above the sky.

    With tears in my heart have l love you, With tears in my eyes have l cherished you, l still love you forever, l still love you even though we can't be together, l still wish you well as you go. My desire is that you find the desires of your heart, My love is that you find the love of your heart, who will love you more than l do. I have lived to love you, Now you leave to be loved by your destined lover. My heart aches for you, My heart beats for you, My heart lives to unite with you. You are the embodiment of my character, the strenght of my youth, the power of my proweels. I've loved you to be loved, Now l leave to let you love. Till then when all lovers are gone, When there are no more feelings, My heart will bleed for you!

    Nothing is found except it is hidden, Nothing is hidden except it is a secret, Nothing is a secret except it is a treasure. In me lies an awaiting voice to be heard, wisdom for the seekers of light and light to those in darknesss. My instincts awaits to glitter like a light on a dark world. I seek me a quest for me, l seek to discover me for me, and for my being. The quest for me will never end until my light shines in darkness, the search for me continues until that l am discovered. With a heart of anticipation will l look far beyond the present. Better to die searching than to live undiscovered, or even defeated. Till then when my gifts are known by all, my instinct shall guide my ambitions, My passion and believe shall keep me until all my talents are discovered. I will continue to hover like a bird in the sky, For the quest of my hidden gifts to be unveiled.
