मैने आज समंदर देखा,
ज्यादा दूर में गया नहीं,
तेरी आँखों के अंदर देखा,
ग़ज़ब सी गहराई हैं,
लगता है सारी क़ायनात
तुझमे समाई हैं...

I would have went away if you just asked me to
You didn't have to achieve that by being cruel
I know better than to push when I'm not wanted
Learned that from memories to which I'm haunted

But this time I thought I would belong
It doesn't surprise me that I was wrong
Now deep in my muscles and bones I do ache
From carrying the weight of all my mistakes

I wish I could sleep until I finally die
So I don't have to feel my numb soul inside
I know this seems like an overreaction
To the fact I am no longer in fashion

But if you add up my life you would feel
This final event was anything but trivial
I had worked on accepting I would be ignored
Then you showed up, knocking on my door

You told me ...

There’s something to your kisses
The way they move mountains
Within the depths of my soul
The way you stop time
Within this heart of mine
That makes me love you more

Yay!  Yay!  Yay!

My name is Rumpelstiltskin
and
I’m glad V-day’s flown away!

all these cries of broken hearts
make me wanna start

give kick here
give kick there

until there’s no more tears

cause what i ask is a bloody
bleeding heart suppose to do?

when wrapped alone
in sorrow’s fear
V-day’s no longer blessed
unless a heart well loved
holds true

Yay!  Yay!  Yay!

My name is Rumpelstiltskin
and
I’m glad V-day’s flown away!

AMOR

Nos enseñan desde pequeños que el sentido de la vida es crecer y pasar, una buena parte de ella, buscando a esa persona ideal. Nos hablan de amor por todos los medios posibles, y eso aumenta en este día. Nos hablan de una mujer o de un hombre, que tenemos que encontrar entre los miles de millones de habitantes de este mundo.

Canciones, poemas, historias en libros, comercio, fechas. Todo nos conlleva a matarnos la cabeza pensando en ese alguien que completa nuestra existencia. Otros soñamos despiertos, imaginando como será el proveedor de nuestra gran historia de amor.

¿Saben? Eso no es tan malo, es romanticismo, a veces nos salva, otras veces nos sumerge en la oscuridad. Pero el amor ...

Mujer de piel canela, dueña de mis suspiros y letras.

Mujer de fuego, provocadora de poesía y sueños.

Mujer de magia, en tu piel la vida se va y se convierte en eternidad.

These walls dissolve
With just the thought of you
My heart is open
In every way for you
My soul reaches out
Through the galaxy
And with this connection
Your love takes over me

we sip on spilled tea,
chamomile and calendula
laced with the bitter leaves
of yesterday’s drama
told on repeat,
a potent potion
of transparent truths
served in a crystal glass
(we dress it up fancy, you know)
we choke it down
and chase it
with a bit of
lighthearted talk
about the weather
and the latest season of AHS
(we should’ve just stuck to tequila)

the sky is a jeweled canvas,
flecks of magic within a sea of black
i feel the cool touch of autumn
making its home in my abandoned bones,
and i can breathe once more

   Leave only footprints
   And your secrets
   In the snow
   For when the fires rage
   All else will be lost
   In a gale of embers
   While your dreams
   Simply become one
   With the Earth.     JD

A Simple Fool

I am a simple fool and never was I less
I never went to school, I never took the test
As long as birds fly in the sky I'm happy to confess
I am a simple fool in need of your caress

I am a simple fool, put simply I'm a mess
I never looked too cool, was not out to impress
As long as I can laugh and cry, put one in front of two
I am a simple fool, put simply, I love you

I am a simple fool, got no need for excess
And, only simple things are all I can express
If complications should arise I deal with them in jest
I am a simple fool with no pride to invest

I am a simple fool, not too hard to digest
I have a simple heart that's beating in my chest
The eyes I peer through want to se...

I just need your lips
On my neck.
Your breathing
Giving me goosebumps.
And your arms around
My body that you’re
Craving to devour.
My heart is in your hands.
Please be gentle with me.
Let’s freeze time
Make this night ours.

My dearest readers:
Its almost spring, and the birds are starting to sing. As I write this. You may be dreaming, of a one night's love affair. That leaves an eternal memory. Which binds our heart and soul. As we look for something, that we can rely on. Picture that magical moment. Where you can feel. The sensual pleasure, that we  share through these words. Let your heart talk to me, because the words that are left unspoken, make us feel totally connected.

Who is this Cupid? And if you play, his game of chance. Know this before you ever start. That in this dance. Some are born to sweet delights. And some are born to lonly nights. Before, he even shoots his arrow to wound your heart.

I’m trying to be kind to myself and to those who’ve not always been kind to me. My way of doing this, is often to leave others be.  I see it sounds insensitive, sometimes to walk away, but it’s better than the arguing alternative if I actually stay.  Sometimes I need a moment or two to process what I have learned.   It is surprising and helpful news to me that loyalty needs to be earned.
I don’t believe any of us were put on this planet to be misused, mistreated, or misunderstood.  However, when I don’t have the answers this for me, this gentle retreat, is good.  What others don’t realize when I go away is that, words can cause a great deal of hurt when you toss them away. I would much rathe...

I am modest,
I am docile,
I am of those most meek.
I am not sure who
I am supposed to be,
You see, I was taught humility
At so young an age,
It was not even a lesson
I needed the most taught to me.
Now Shame is all I have ever know,
And She often walks hand in hand with Fear.
He was an even crueler Lover.,
And now I am with an unusual certainty
Afraid to be
All that I could, all that I am, inside.
Their shadows still follow me,
and so I have allowed my heart to dwell
No, to hide behind these walls
I built with quiet reserve
In my own silent determination,
Bent on saving what little of me is left.
Having never stepped outside
This Palace of Dreams...

De lejanas posibilidades que se contemplan a lo lejos.

I don’t know
where this peacefull voice comes from,
but I know you love me
despite my history.
I'm haunted by your essence,
breathless.
Blessed everyday,
we spend hours laughing
together,
those days that we will
remember
when we’re old.
In front of you
I am proud
by the sensation
of being alive.
Death can do with me
whatever she wants,
cause where ever I will be,
you will be there too,  
carved within my heart.
