The Wedding Poem

IMG_1964.JPG
I was going about my indie life
thinking I was strong and complete.
But then one day I came upon you,
and you swept me off my feet.

The world told me that fate
belonged in fairy tales,
and that love was just a myth.
But if that was true,
then how could you
capture my heart
with just one kiss.

Lay down your burdens before me,
Let me hold on to your heart.
I’m not the kind of person
to tell you lies,
I want to shelter you from the dark.

And I know I’m gonna hurt you,
We’re bound to argue, fuss, and fight.
But I’m also going to lift you
when you’re down,
and fill your darkest moments
with my light.

Let us be bound together by two circles.
Let us seal our souls with a kiss.
Let us write a Declaration of Dependance.
Let us tell the world of our love’s bliss!

I know this journey won’t be easy.
Sometimes we’ll come undone.
But you’re the air I need to breathe,
That’s how I know you’re the one.

Marry me.

i Ran Away

by Jack Morgan

Infused with the poison of a scorpion,

the sting of words penetrate my mind.

Their messages pain my body with anxiety,

and infect my soul with a doubtful self-image

which haunts me all the time.

To evade this metaphysical destruction,

i ran away.

There was darkness brooding  in my last romance,

two ships were sailing in the same direction.

But then came a suspicious remark,

the digital herald had summoned

one of the ship’s captains,

attempting to lure her in

with his tempestuous suggestions.

The wiser and more experienced captain

had been aware of their alliance,

he knew his first mate was secretly courting her,

but he pretended to be unaware of their defiance.

Though he knew the day would soon come,

when he would confront the young captain

of the second ship.

So he decked his heart in Athene’s armor,

lest he find himself trapped

in the clutch of their lascivious grip.

Her sinful lusts,

acknowledged them not.

A virtuous path,

he preferred she sought.

Err was his thinking,

the damage was wrought.

Twas his first mate’s perfidy,

and the captain’s mistress

had been caught!

Marooned on the salty shores of Miami,

with terrible pangs marching,

marching to war against my heart,

i ran away –

to find protection in the park.

Clarity of the mind

is lacking in our youth,

but it is a potent ally

to those who seek the truth.

It is in these troubled times

that I dawn on my running shoes,

so that I may see the spider’s web

with my invisible sixth sense view.

As I ran away into the park,

my mind was ignited with

a neurological spark.

I found the sword-like words

to surmount my tribulation.

Then I declared proverbial war

without a hint of hesitation.

I lost two companions

who were once dear friends,

but never has there been a war

without some casualties

in the end.

How wretched it is

when little things transpire

from the evil seeds of thoughts,

how reckless it is

to quench the messages

that speak goodness and truth

from within your heart.

My mind was boggled until today,

thank God i was able to run away.

Verona, Juliet’s Balcony

A Tribute to the song, What is a Youth, Romeo and Juliet (1968)

Dear Love,

I see your demise, I hear your song.

A picture of beauty,

her face is upon.

The trick of Love,

your bitter departure hurts us all.

Why must you torment me,

why must I fall…

Like the beautiful rose,

the most appealing of flowers,

your allure is enchanting,

but lives only an hour.

First comes the bloom,

then comes the fade.

So too our love,

you will not stay.

In my youth,

I stood unprepared,

to deal with emotions

– so ripe and so bare.

My senses were ignited

– by her gentle kiss,

Could you not perceive

– our sensational bliss?

The wrong that you did

– began with our lips.

To abstain from her touch,

I would have been sorely remiss.

So I fell into you, unable to stand,

and broke my poor heart

– for it could not land

on the cloud you suggested.

I was too naive

– my heart was unprotected.

Oh Love, what have you done!

My Spring has gone,

and Summer’s good sun

is setting in the horizon

– the Fall shall come.

Hushed in the morning,

now hushed in the dawn,

the flower departing,

the scent almost gone.

You’ve hurt me, dear Love.

But I would have it no other way.

To have lived without loving her,

my life would have been vague.

Better to have loved, then lost,

if only 3 days –

than to sulk in my misery

before entering the grave.

In closing, Dear Love,

to you I must say…

thank you for Juliet.

I love her – always.

Yours Truly, Romeo
