TO SERENADE A ROSE



Her beauty steals the eyes of every man/

As her eyes hypnotizes hearts into slavery's hands/

Every man would sooner cut off his own hand/

Than be set free from the prison of her charm/



Her complexion brightens the countenance of every weather/

As her presence perfumes the atmosphere with heaven's fragrance/

Oh! that I may be bold to approach her radiance/

And risk rejection's sting of eternal penance/



Her ears are bathe with declarations of her beauty/

As her hair seducts the enchanting dance of the morning breeze/

The winds set sail in the direction her course lays/

To catch a glimpse of inspiration for a new day/



Her lips are imprinted in the dreams of every king/

As her touch is longed for across the seven seas/

Even the sands curls in warmth upon contact with her feet/

But the tragedy that breathes is she must never know how I feel/





DAYDREAMING OF A ROSE



My heart sinks in torture at the absence of her face/

My mind fights in vain to veil pictures of her face/

I lay awake at midnight daydreaming of the day/

The hands of fate stir our footprints till we're face to face/

May shyness evaporate and my words not run away/

May her beauty not melt my brain as cold-feet freezes my veins/

May understanding overtake every word that escapes/

As a Lady Of Quality's learned ears awaits/

A Queen of communication overflowing with grace/

Her smile breaks the glass of hesitation's champagne/

Relaxation flows like rain seeping through to my veins/

Wisdom's faithfulness graces my adjectives today/

Two hearts chat away like two birds in a cage/

Each sound seals the air of familiarity with Band-Aid/

It's too good to be true, and feels too good to be fake/

But may my dreams come true before I awake/





TO UNDERSTAND A ROSE



Who can read a woman's heart/

Who can tell each sentence's start/

What does it mean, What does it say/

Mysteries unfold, Mysteries remain/



Who can read a woman's eyes/

Who can interpret a woman's ways/

What does it mean, What does it say/

Does it say Yes? , Does it say Nay?/



Who can kiss a woman's heart/

When she hides it behind a veil/

What does it want, What does it say/

Or are we deaf to its sound-waves?/



Who can understand a Rose/

Its tender ways, It's concrete node/

Delicate & Strong, What contradiction/

To Understand a Rose can only take God/




Remolding a rose



When a man's heart grows wings like a dove/

And flutters in his chest, yet free like a boat/

Sailing through the seven seas seeking wonders untold/

Cause his heart's been captured by a treasure that beats gold/

If his soul mixed with hers does not make one whole/

And he seeks to change her to make things so/

Disaster awaits like a Pirate's flagpole/

Though passions may burn like a Flare in the cold/

Love's wings would melt down as sunlight unfolds/

For you can't remold a Rose without ruining its Soul/





GOD LOVES YOU



Preachers are always on T.V saying, "God Loves You"/

Yet when a Mirror looks at me, it paints a picture of a fluke/

Is it love that made my features make Girl's puke?/

Is it love that rolled up its sleeves and gave me the boot?/



Christians are always saying, "God Loves You"/

If that is True, does God love them too?/

How come they're always first when it's time to persecute?/

Throughout history they are beheaded or are Lion's food/



I'm sick of hearing Christians say, "God Loves You"/

Well, how about you, do you love me too?/
