Heaven or Hell ?

Hell they say is the worst place to be,
And heaven they say the best,
Heaven and hell is just a perception,
We all live it each day,

A tale I shall tell you inspired my life,
This tale is of heaven and hell,
This tale is of a saint not a sinner,
This tale is life changing at best,

Paul at the pearly gate was asked,
Heaven or will it be hell?
Paul pondered he replied,
Can I check and decide,
Sure the gate keeper said,

First visit he made to hell itself,
It was dinner time fine dine at its best,
As they sat across each other,
Dinner table was a wide luxurious spread,
Long fork and spoon tied to each arm,
Movement or eating was a mess,

Next to heaven Paul requested,
Dinner time and same table spread,
He was shocked to see long fork and spoon tied to each arm,
No difference from that hell,

What he saw shocked his mind,
One member fed who was across and not themselves,
He thought a while the miracle he observed,
No change of grounds just change of minds,
And not the rest,

He said to the gatekeeper,
Hell it is my sir,
That is my choice
I shall inflict change in the rest.

I leave you with a tale,
A story I heard,
A realization nonetheless.

Non sharer 101

To the non sharers,
To the labeled stuck ups,
Little do people understand privacy,
Little do people understand respect,
Little will they understand it's a life battle each day,

Non sharing is skill,
An acquired skill if you ask,
It's owned by the emotional,
It's used by the sensitive,
It's grown with life experience,
Watered by people,
And used by you,

Non sharing is used by the fragile,
Used by those that are screwed over,
Those who have been betrayed,
Misunderstood by their loved ones,
Judged by their own,

This is not inherent,
It is acquired,
Life teaches you lessons,
Non sharing been one,

You make a non sharer,
When your family misunderstands you,
When your loved one betrays you,
When you friends back-stabs you,
When society slaps you as a misfit,

Next time don't ask to open up,
Knowing people like you are the cause,
Your opinion is yours,
Others life battls is not your public forum,
Learn respect,
Learn boundaries,
Learn most importantly to be Human.

The fear is of losing you,
The fear is not making you mine,
The fear is not waking up to you,
The fear is you realizing I'm damaged nothing close to fine,

The feeling of wanting to kiss you,
Linger in your mind all the time,
To always keep you by me,
Make love long warm all night,

The fear is not marrying you,
Fear is our kids being like me,
Fear is that I'll disappoint you,
Fear is my darkness you shall breathe,

This is my paranoia,
Paranoia of an animal lived,
Paranoia of a damaged soul,
Paranoia I battle always thinking I'll win.

It's a temptation me to just kiss you,
It's a temptation to hold you tight,
It's temptation to just look at you,
Just want you by my side,
Temptation is to wake up to you,
Temptation is to make love,
Temptation is to dream a future with you,
A future we've never spoken of,
Temptation is to want children with you,
To spoil them while you teach,
Temptation is to grow old with you,
To say I do in that wedding aisle,
Know that you're mine to keep.

It's when you meet your demons again,
It's when they come knocking,
It's when you hear them march,

It's when you welcome them to your dreams,
That knowing it is going to be a nightmare,
It's when they crawl to your idle mind,

It's when they whisper you to take your life,
It is when they ask if the pain is worth it,
They question next time you fall will you get up,

Are they living under your bed?
Or dormant in your mind,
Do they activate on your fears?
Or is it your happiness they feed on?

Demons are real,
What they whisper is horrific,
Once in a way you need a Constantine,
You need a grasp to that shiny light,

This is to my demons I'm saying hi,
I fear you today,
When I'm idle,
When I'm happy,
When I reminisce my past,

I'm going keep coming at you,
Till I make,
Or sweetheart,
Till I break.

Teen Love

Teen love is always fancy,
It's glamorous to the core,
It's made of impressing,
It's like a peacock show,
It exciting, wild, and eventful,

It's a weird sacrifice,
A perfect show,
An elegant approach,
And so much comprise,

It a adventurous hunt,
An an unimaginable heist,
Heist of an ego,
Heist of a heart,

Little do they know,
Off stage there is no acting,
Once won its a curtain close,
True people come alive,

Did you fall for the actor,
Or the show,
Was it the drama,
And the person off stage you didn't know,

It is when they are comfortable,
The true people come to bay,
The Romeo Juliet phase,
The him and her phase,
It's a tricky adventure life gives,

Teen love you are deceiving,
Eventful none the less,
Elegant no doubt,
Tender and confusing none the less.

Unfixable meets Hope

I want to close my eyes to things I don't want to see,
I want to open my eyes to you,
I want to close my heart to the pain of my past,
I want to open my heart to kiss,

I want to to close my soul to heartbreak,
I want to set my soul free to you,
I want to close myself from sharing,
I want to open my fears to you,

I want kiss you under the moonlight,
To the star kissed stary night,
Fall asleep to your warmth,  underneath the cold winter moonlight,

To you I want to open my broken soul,
To redeem my demons,
To fix what never shall be whole.

Dear Friends

Dear friends,
This I write in despair,
To the mindless,
To the jobless and no other,
And no other,

Does it bring joy to ramble,
Does it bring joy to whine,
Does it bring meaning to talk about others,
Does it bring meaning to bring personal lives of others to coffee,
Does it bring adventure to talk about your sex life,

The joy,
Who's the whore,
Who dresses like a slut,
Who be flirting,
Who you been talking to,
What stupid life decisions has another made,

Does it take energy to take mindful,
Take that time to review your life,
To share your sorrows,
Encourage yourself by your friends,
Does it pain to talk intellectual,
Does it hurt you to bring focus to your life,

Saddens me I think,
To know humans are idiots,
Saddens me I think,
To see such waste of time,
Next time I beg,
Think of the pollution you bring to your surrounding.
