The Workings of the Mind

 

I have included several pieces of poetry here, so as you do not have to keep bouncing back and forth. They are not all brand new, but pieces from over the years. As moods change so does the style of writing and the works of the mind. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoy writing them Please do not copy or remove any or make an links to this page for in doing so without my permission would inflict upon copyright laws. As an Attorney I assure I am prepared to insure my rights are protected. Thank you, enjoy and GOD BLESS. Alexandria (November 20m 1998)
     Best Friend
     I am my own best friend and I
     Despair the need for more than my
     Own steps upon this narrow walk
     Around the unrelenting clock
     That beating shadow, pushing me
     Toward my dimming destiny
     And should I ever hesitate
     I hear it mock our crueler fate
     Your hands to touch, your eyes to see
     Your fragrance, taste, and melody
     All must be sensed! I cannot block
     Sensations in me as you talk
     Nor can I to cruel time deny
     That I do need you more than I.
 
 
 
     Love at First Sight
 
     Do I believe in love at first sight?
     Forgive the laugh, but the question is so naive!
     Youthful fancies hardly encompass the complexities
        of mature relationships.
     True, you are quite beautiful, but one cannot know
        true inner beauty at first glance. It's much deeper
        and takes time to be revealed.
     Your skin is perhaps softer than the flowing foam of
        some gently murmuring distant shore, but what of it?
        That's not love.
     I do notice that your hands are more graceful than a
        ballet of swaying boughs and your laughter a dance
        of dappled sunlight.
     And in your eyes are glimmering pools of joy and tenderness,
        warm swirls of innocence and passion, playfulness and
        understanding.
     And in your eyes, Beauty laughs and plays and sings
        and calls my name.
     And Trust with Caution pleads and cooing Passion intervenes,
        and Grace extends her open arms, and I surrender silently.
     But love at first sight? How can it be?


The game - 7/10 1998
What happened
why did it go so wrong?
Why did you leave me
why did you run to your home?
Please come back and show me what I want to see
please tell me that you still love me
It makes me so sad when you're kissing that boy
and treat me as if I just was a toy
Every night in my sleep
my feelings for you are so deep
You said that we would be forever more
I was the one who you would adore
All the moments we once shared together
are still on my mind forever
But every time I wake up and whisper your name
I get reminded that it was just a game…

 Secret affection - 20/6 1998
Our relation may not seem so much
sometimes when you reach out
I won't be there to touch
When you wake up in the darkness totally blind
Please remember you're always on my mind
When you're sitting in your favorite chair at home
please remember you're never alone
If I just could tell you how much I care
how can I ever dare?
I want you to know that you always meant to me
more than you'll ever see... 


A sweet saga - 12/4 1998
From the moment I saw you
I knew dreams would come through
We stood in the sunlight and the sky were so blue
I felt your breath, your heat, every step you took
How you walked towards me and gave me that look
When I began to know you, you opened your heart
later that was also what would tear us apart
You shared me your secrets in cries and in pain
you felt so lonely and walked out in vain
I shouldn't have left you, I shouldn't have gone
I should have stayed by your side and sing you a song
I think about you every day, every evening, every night
I just want to protect you and hold you tight
You're in my dreams when I sleep
you're on my mind when I eat
The same thoughts are rushing through my mind,
the long for you is driving me crazy and blind
We may never meet again but I want you to know
that whatever happen, whatever you'll do
you'll always be deep in my heart
and nothing can truly tear us apart... 


A ship full of passion is my gift for you
a relation of affection between us two
Stars and emotions in my mind
love that makes me totally blind
Will my dreams ever come through?
Can I ever be with you?
One thing that still is true
now and forever I'll always love you... 


A single moment - 18/7 1997
If I could exchange all my happiness
for a single moment with you
If I could reach out and touch my princess
only a second or two
the choice would have been easy
'cause the only thing I'll ever do
is staring into emptiness and thinking of you... 


Mountain - 1997
When the mountain is burning
and the lightning is turning
When the sky will turn gray
and there's nothing more to say
When everything fails and the trees will fall
that's when my heart will tell you all
There's only one thing that matters to me
I'll give my love, I'll give all to thee
and I know that my feelings are true,
I'll always stay close to you... 


Hold me tight - 1997
Was this really meant to be?
I don't understand, I can not see
I don't know what to say?
I will wait for you, forever and a day
In my dreams you will always be
I swear and promise all to thee
Please come hold me tight
I'll love you always forever, tonight... 


Heart - 1997
Give me your heart
and I'll take it
Give me your heart
I promise I won't ever break it
Maybe it's hard to see
but I wish you'd say that you loved me... 


Goodnight - 12/11 1996
The heaven so blue
The stars so bright
Under the moon we are standing tonight
I'm kissing you softly and holding you tight
while I'm saying goodnight... 


Protection - 19/9 1996
When you're feeling sad don't cry 'cause I'll be there
I'll be the one who protect you I swear
I'll stay till the end till the lie is truth
and our lives are youth.... 


A star in the night - 16/9 1996
You are a star in the night
that is shining so bright
You are the sun in the sky
that is making me dry
You are the spirit that is helping me through
that's why I'm saying I love you... 


Children - 22/5 1996
Playing like the children do,
bake a cake, just for you
Kissing you slowly, hold you tight,
find each other be so bright
Walking towards side by side,
looking forward, take a ride
These are just my simple dreams
don't know really what they mean... 


Staring in the night - 27/4 1996
Sitting in my chair at night
staring through the window watching stars so bright
The darkness is laying as a fearsome maze
like the liquid of a frighten face
Feeling like a tear in rain
will no one say a word again?
But why am I crying in vain this night?
when you're so close and tight...

Like the birds - 20/6 1998
Like a pillow you can drown in
like the rabbit you can cuddle with
like spaghetti messes you up
like a ship, steady as she goes
like a farewell, so much to say, so little time
like the loneliness on an island
like the birds, who one moment
share their singing with you
and a moment later fly away
That is love... 


A sweet saga - 12/4 1998
From the moment I saw you

We stood in the sunlight and the sky were so blue

We may never meet again but I want you to know
that whatever happen, whatever you'll do
you'll always be deep in my heart
and nothing can truly tear us apart... 


The Rose - 11/3 1998
I stood in the shadow of the trees
when you walked to the pond and fell on your knees
A rose was growing on the water edge
you stepped through the grass towards the ledge
Your smile was glittering in the sunlight so bright
a wish, a dream of streaming light
I sought your body, your soul, the control of your mind
a feeling, a passion, that drove me crazy and blind
A hope and faith that may come true
that is the rose of affection I want to give to you... 


Friends - 10/12 1997
When I stood in the rain alone
you picked me up and followed me home
Like a goddess healing my pain
I knew I wouldn't cry in vain
You meant so much to me
more than I'll ever see
When I was blind you helped me through
although I never believed in you
Now when I look at the sky once so blue
it does no longer matter 'cause I really believe in you
When I look in your eyes and vanish in pain
you know for sure we'll never meet again
but in my heart you'll always be
sitting here, right next to me... 


This poem is specially written for Elina Andersson.

Passion - 15/9 1997
A ship full of passion is my gift for you
a relation of affection between us two
Stars and emotions in my mind
love that makes me totally blind
Will my dreams ever come through?
Can I ever be with you?
One thing that still is true
now and forever I'll always love you...

Sunrise - 24/4 1996
Now I'm gonna sleep
and in the morning I'll eat
then I'll cry in vain
cause people make me feelin' pain
But then the sun rises in my way
makin' brightness in the day
That sun is you... 


Sunshine - 1996
You are my sunshine on a rainy day
and this is what I have to say
You will always be a part
of my truly heart
make my heaven always blue
and say I love you
Wherever you are
whatever you do
I'll always remember you... 


Tears - 1996
Tears are running down her cheek
making her unable even to speak
She is crying like no one can
she smells the tears from a fallen man... 


Dreams - 1996
In my dreams, in my mind you are everywhere
in the days, in the nights you're always here
Your voice is so tender your lips are so fine
I wish so much I could say you were mine...
