" to A Very Special Friend"

the good, and the bad we have seen all, /
we catch each other when we fall
through the seasons of the year/
by our laughter and our tears /
i know you and you know me/
i hold you closer than family /
there's not a secret left untold /
our friendship's worth far more than gold /
when the world seems to turn black /
you find a way to bring me back /
to see the colours or a sunset /
These are the things I will never forget /
to know us this long, we should know all/
But some things about you are like the qaba'al'/
i know if you like strawberry jam or preserves /
you know if i like to expound or save words/
but one thing that burns, that eats me right through /
do you know how much i truly love you?

the lavender lovers

soothe thy inner flame
it burns thy soul and body
not known is it though

in the name of both
the god and three-fold goddess
may this be true love

in apothicare
our eyes meet over monkshood
and our hands both touch

as we both reach for
the same parcel of vervain
we become entranced

his eyes bewitch me
rings of purest, clearest blue
his soul on display

skin of cream-soaked silk
pale as moonlight on the sea
smooth as quicksilver

as i ask his name
i scrounge for a parchment sheet
found i scrawl contacts

the next day i see
a number and 'unknown call'
i pick up this time

oh, what luck have I?
the caller is he asking
"are you free tonight?"

my heart all a-flit
a date with this cute young man
pinch me, do i dream?!?

at eight of the clock
he appears in my doorway
wearing full white tie

as he guides me out
i see a horse drawn cairrage
and he said "shall we?"

as we drive away
he reaches under the seat
to bring out a box

"what is that?" i ask
"it is something i got you,
the key to my heart"

i open the box
inside is a literal key
stylized necklace

"you now hold the key
to all of my deepest thoughts
i trust you fully"

oh what rapture sings?!
this seems to progress so fast
and yet is too slow

only the first date
and yet i know without err
that he has my soul

within a week's time
we have discussed all of each
now we ask the last

"will you be just mine?
for now, for ever, for good?
will you marry me?"

as these words spring out
i gasp and am speechless made
all i do is nod

to Priestess rush we
with haste we can do so now
handfasting be cast

the priestess asks us
"do you both join without guile?
if so join thy hands"

without waiting we,
clasp each other and look deep
into our mate's eyes

on the altar bound
is the book of memories
may it ne'er be full

the golden haired herr

the gods cast forth a boy named chris, with hair and skin of gold
to know him is paridise, his love? glory untold!/
they made a boy, and called him chris, why i do not know
but life is sweet content am i, to know to he i go!/
i see a sweetness in his eyes, bright light comes from his grin
his breath-taking beauty, i've no doubt, will soothe any din/
day and night i lie awake, mind filled with his sweet face
i count the days untill i'm back, back in his sweet embrace/
my dearest chris i love thee so, more than words may tell
for thee i would bar the gods' gates and cross the styxx river in hell/
my love, my all, i love thee so, more than words may say
for thou art the reason my ship of a heart hath not docked in depression's bay/
dear chris, my love, my friend thou art, i hope that this be true/ and if it not be factual, how will i get o'or you?

Our Poem (or your choice of title)

soothe thy inner flame
it burns thy soul & body
not known is it though

life both fair and fun
never one to pick a fight
eight-striped coloured flag

blade and chalice meet
from their union, comes one more
to the eyes a blade

in his heart of hearts
he feels as a chalice wrapped
entombed within life

when will eyes uncloud?
true beauty is not direct,
look beyond the terms!

in one's life one falls
be it once or many times
can you choose who for?

the boy who moved in?
Sue from fourth grade chemistry?
love could choose either

is this truly wrong?
people, high powers, listen!
how is love a sin?

if we truly love
each other, then you have not
the power of 'nay'

why should just one love,
be the one condoned in church?
why matters gender?

why should we be barred
from true love, with our soul mate?
or a set of vows?
