Queen Feelings

Queen Feelings

Are my feelings true?

 As true as they get.


Go through anything for you, tears, blood and sweat.

You’ve got me on a cloud right now, hope I don’t descend.

Got my emotions tired, want to be much more than friends.

Bringing aspects to your life that you had never seen,


My heart, a desolate desert, turned into a budding, flowering green.


I don’t care if I’m the King, so long as you are my reigning Queen.


You turned my life if nightmares, into a living dream.


Take your time, think it over,


don’t answer right away;


Just realize dear Queen,


you are the Ray of sunlight in my day






Periods of long distortion,

when I see things through the eyes of you.

This view,

What will tomorrow bring?


Around the corner, my head hurts.

Those eyes, that memory, this road before I’ve traveled.

But which way did I go?

Just over that hill, be still.

Bad memory, waking up in dreams.

I want to see what is next…

Into the eyes of you, this view.

What happens after now?

Forever stop infinity to cease endlessly,


And just out of bounds,

The time to wake up is now.



Your my diamond in the rough.

The sweet smell of rose amongst a dirty musk.

You’re a diamond, set on platinum.

You’re a Pile of carats. 

An undeniable attraction, my words can’t touch 

If I could alleviate your pain I would take it in a second.

Warmth moves over my body when you step in my direction.

The negative outlook, now you’re changing my perception.

More than beautiful, more like God’s divine invention.

Cause for you baby, I would stop the ruin.

Thoughts of you run through my mind like blood runs through my veins.

Everything you do is perfect, I would never give an order.

Walking in the desert, your my only drop of water.

I keep a hard front, but you just crossed the border.

Look into your eyes, I see a goddess.

Getting to my heart and defying all my logic.

Can’t figure it out. But whatever. I want you, got it?

Staring at you, it couldn’t get much better.

Feathers of a kind, that’s why we flock together.

If you dislike a word of this I hope you realize; whether hurricane or tsunami-

You’re my sunny weather girl.




After Awhile- Veronica Schoffstall

After Awhile- Veronica Schoffstall


To my Readers,
 I want to share this with you.  AFTER AWHILE is my favorite poem. Over the years, every time I read it, not only does it move me, it also enlightens me. The enlightenment comes regarding the many choices I have made. As well as the many life lessons taught to me by the universe. Every time I read it, it has a huge impact on me.  I can tell that the author has been exactly where i was when I first discovered this poem. I was nursing a very broken heart, yet  refusing to let it beat me.  I will continue to decorate my own soul- you should do the same. Enjoy!

After Awhile…

After awhile you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t always mean security.
And you begin to learn, that “kisses aren’t contracts, and presents aren’t promises”.
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead with the grace of a woman and not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is to uncertain- for plans and futures have a way of falling down in mid flight.
After awhile you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong, and you really do have worth,
and you learn
and you learn
with every goodbye you learn.
