What’s a Woman to Do?

Published June 27, 2016 by amusingamore

What’s a woman to do?

When she finds someone

That does more for her than:  Shake the bed, make her sweat, turn her head

What’s a woman supposed to do?

When you spin her heart, flip it, build it up, tear it apart

Call her Baby, tell her “maybe”, drive her crazy

What’s a woman to do?

When she tells you she’s not really looking

No expectations, so many sensations in our relations

What’s a woman to do?

If you take her hand and speak like a man and say:

I’m liking things, but this has no wings

Whats a woman to do?

When she finds her game

And all her fame

Changed by one man

It’s you.  Damn.

I Paint You

Published June 27, 2016 by amusingamore

My page pales in comparison to the wild, cluttered images that paint my mind.

Yesterday I stood in the sunshine – cleansing, unchanging. It didn’t wash me of you.

Today I stand in the moonlinght – pure, enlightening.

My painting of us is ambiguous but remarkable.

I just paint you.

In images that appear when I think of me, of us.

Smooth lines, deep colors, abrupt and soothing.

A masterpiece undiscovered in the depths of me.

My restless search has become a misleading journey.

No priceless creations.

I reached out and asked you to slow me down.

Now we stroke the canvas.

Can’t guide myself through this.

As Monet painted vanilla skies and Davincci put Mona on skin,

Help me hold the brush, stretch this canvas.

I paint you, paint us, with this heart called my brush.

The One

Published June 27, 2016 by amusingamore

Thoughts of you are limitless

Each time we speak I’m lifted

Can’t express how well we’re fitted

Your touch, your love…is gifted

You’re the sunshine in my eyes

The rain on my face

The wind in my hair

I’m spending my fate

Am I losing my mind

Or am I falling in love

Never thought I’d find

The one

You know those secret things?

Ones you pray for, you need?

I have all of them in you

All of them indeed

I don’t know if it’s wise

To connect like this

Now you have my heart

And I’ve got my wish

You’re the sunshine in my eyes

The rain on my face

The wind in my hair

I’m spending my fate

Am I losing my mind

Or am I falling in love

Never thought I’d find

The one

Past Your Pain

Published June 27, 2016 by amusingamore

If you keep your head up

You can at least look past your pain

And when you’ve finally had enough

You’ll believe in you again

It’s true, i’m strong enough

To carry both of us through

My love is sure enough

I beleive in me and you

Fortuitous

If one searches hard enough, long enough, blessings – whether in fortune, fame, health, or souls, gifts from heaven, are here.

Similar to the heavens, abundant with stars that shine above us and reach beyond imagination…

…like the waters in our world that touch places only the most explorative search for…

…even through the expanse of the most creative imaginations…

We have many blessing we look for, are there, and in our deepest truths, acknowledge.

Often it is not when we are able to see the stars that light the paths we walk,

or when we can swim to the shores that support and sustain us,

or when deepest wishes come true….

that we consciously stop and withstand life’s forceful current long enough to take it all in and truly infuse it all with who we are and hope to be.

Sometimes stars fall from heaven and it’s legend that once they’ve fallen, they’re no longer a part of a dotted masterpiece that’s wished upon, looked up to.

Could it be that fallen stars find their way washed up on the shores we’ve traveled to in our lives and were born again into the souls that touched our lives?

Beautiful Me

Published June 27, 2016 by amusingamore

Be for real

Be careful and gentle

Don’t strain your eyes

It’s me, Beautiful me

 It’s hard enough

Slow down and do it right

Take your time and be slight

Be there without question

In your eyes I’m restin’

I want to be asked

Don’t assume it’s all about you

Don’t get me down

Take your time and be slight

Do it right because it’s me, Beautiful me
