#11 Magic 9




Typing too fast is often the cause of spellimg mistakes and one day Abracadabra was typed as a b a c a d a b a and right away a poetry form appeared. As can be seen its simply a progression around the first line and with lines 2 and 8 rhyming with each other also. Here is an example.

Bewitched

Shalt not thy deprave the spell of love
enchanted words that melts the heart
that cast thy spells deep within thereof
within a mystical aura of spiritual magic
that only lovers become reminiscent of
powers of the occult shall be of sorcery
percieved from insight of spirits above
inspiration within shall not ever depart
when a bewitched spell is as worthy of

Stalker

He assures me everyday there's no pain
I've felt that he doesn't have much more
Of, for of acute discomfort is shared strains,
Then there are moments to shut doors
As I cannot endure the constant feign
That my own annoyance is less than yours,
Oh, that it should end in a game
Hunting as the hunted wild pig scores
A hit with tusk and cloven hoof for sake of personal gain.

Believe In Dragons

Believe in dragons, that they may live again
Lording over land and sea, this gentle beast
Let us share this land that was once their ane
The time is ripe that we may live this fantasy
Past lies and greed meant that most were slain
Give them back their land before they all slain
Why cannot fantasy and life be both the same?
Knightly lore was blackest deed and evil feast
Can't we believe and see them in their domain?

For dragons lore was part of what used to be
But blackest deeds and wicked tricks overthrow
Even the strongest, especially by Royal decree
Magic helped the reigned lord to gain his power
It is well known that the victor writes history
And golden scales rewarded many by their death
Hear amid our deepest dreams the creatures plea
Whilst secretly they hide and secretly they grow
Now they emerge welcomed from their bower.



-----

Candlelight

The room exudes a gentle flickering heat
From light cast simply from four red candles
Softly highlighting your features so sweet
Your soft wet eyes sparkling in the light
Going from entree to main course eyes meet
As you eat, your eyes are locked onto mine
As you lift each portion ready to eat
Eyes telling me what you are doing
And I wish you were a little more discrete.



-----

Each Morning

Each morning do we really waken
Or fantasise about what we want to see
And if we do, are we very mistaken?
Or, do we sleep and dream our lives
With some pleasant moments taken?
Are you a long past memory of my life,
To what you say I will fully hearken
Portraying life as what should to be,
And there's no way that we're mistaken.

Seeing you there highlighted by beams
Each morning I wake to our joyful life
Ready to share our days and our dreams
Until that final day when we sleep no more.
No sins with our love nothing to redeem
But able still to touch and smile and love
Who knows what'll happen to our schemes
With all our experience there'll be no strife
As we travel together down new streams.



-----

Feeling

The feeling never leaves when you love someone
It's with you for eternity when your soul is shared
Sob gently over her, your tears constantly flow on
The parting of this lifetime when your lover dies.
Just realise that she is never completely gone
Her spirit looking at you listening to your cries.
With true love, there is no end, and no oblivion
You'll be united with the lady for who you cared
As one you'll be there when the final curtain is drawn.



-----

In a Painted House

In a painted house in a painted street
See them exist, but with no-one agreeing
Or knowing about their art and how to cheat.
They insist on expressing their cubism
Their Picasso faces staring out to greet
A world of Boulet hanging on their wall
See on the wall a slanted picture meets
A green faced Chinese girl hanging just being
Looking at them like an oriental Mona Lisa.

In the next door room the Rembrandt's listen
To a cacophony of sound like an 18 year old
In his 1980 Ford, to madness he is driven
Where the intelligence wound right down
The base and volume wound up, fully risen
Not either hearing the message nor caring
Fate continues to play but again is forgotten
Only when they are deaf will they be told
And be able to appreciate music not beaten.

A conglomerate of artistic madness
As the buffoon turns over life's tarot.-Oscar Wilde



-----

Just Learning

To learn to love, I must learn to cry
For too long now, my heart has been asleep
Life conditions body and mind to shy
To show no emotion and be stoic in strife.
False rules of manhood taught to apply
Not tears or sobs of heart wrenching pain
But emotions felt all the lows and the high
Because of you, I'm at last learning to weep
To open my heart before love says goodbye

Real tears of joy, my heart's open again
And now I'm here besides you as you sob
Now it's time for you to break your chain
For too long now you have held it inside
Anger and frustration caused you pain
Being told "What do you know, stupid"
You were held back so others could gain
Looking in your eyes, feeling as you'd sob
Holding, kissing, realise your free again.



-----

Kaleidoscope

There was frost on my windscreen this morning
Sparkling and refracting the morning suns beam
In strict patterns following the blades sweeping
Molecules of water ready to become ice crystals
Watching this Kaleidoscope was far from boring
It was showing a myriad of spinning colours
That only nature is ever capable of displaying
My breath is visible in front of me, moist steam
No art show was ever so beautiful, so rewarding.

My inner warmth is released into frigid air
But I can still reach out and feel the warmth
For a moment then disappears quickly I swear.
Again for a while the steering wheel feels cold
I promise I’ll buy a cover then realise they're square
But I know as the day lightens that will all change
I put it in gear and drive away, and am aware
It’s now a single trickle, my kaleidoscope's gone
My wipers cleaned it away without any care.

Love Exists In My Garden

It is the first day of winter today
As I wake up, I hear the sounds of rain
The birds must be in a state of dismay.
Instead I slept in, which is very usual
My military mind had left me this way.
I opened the front door and smelt it
Lavender mixed with roses did convey
Scents that rain had brought to me again
Already I knew that this was a special day.

I grabbed Piggies food and went out the back
Down the steps then turning right to the sage
One side white, one side blue, over the track
The scent as they greet me "Good morn Terry"
There's a mutual feeling of love, of scented sac
I'm sure they sense my love of their scents
Competing for my love by a scented attack
But there is no anger there no sense of rage
Love is white or colours and never ever black.

I've Piggy now and he talks to me by squeal
Walking past the apple tree's welcome touch
I kneel down and open, lift up the two seals
He hops in and I place his days' foods and stuff
He dives in and ignores what's left of the deal
Whilst I once more ignored, walks away again
The little mice come out and carefully steal
The food which he doesn't care for very much
But what is natures balance, seems to appeal.

I move aside the branches of a thorny rose
The one day's water level must be checked
Surprised by the level, that's the way it goes
I use the back way to piggy's night time box
And sneak back so that no bird sees or knows
Til I'm there and they all see me and fly away
Time after time it happens to me, yet I suppose
They've been cheated and many ways checked
And mans will cruel and sadistically imposed.



-----

The Magician

Once again He has picked up the rings of fate
Like any magician he shows them to be apart
His stellar gown highlights the glinting trait
A flash of light! Shazam! The rings are joined.
So like any other whim they are as one a mate
Their lives separate once have now been united
Here we are now and Fate's next move await
Will he leave us together 'til the next shows start?
I pray he puts us down, moving along to create.



-----

Our Dance

In time our bodies will unite the same
We will share things as we did before
From the joys of love we will n'er abstain.
And in the end, will find love's greatness
The wheel of the cosmos we we'll rename
Knowing our lives are perfect and a circle
In some lives the ring becomes a game
We can't predict, understand or ask for
We meet for such a short time such a shame.

Always loving and sharing so many things.
In a time and place where all love is central
Your dreams are they of me and our wings?
No such place exists for all normal beings
Where love is perfect and a dream springs.
Perhaps that's our lesson in this life to learn
A final carrot offered to all mortals even kings
Sitting near warm winter fires being amoral
What we two expect of love and how it sings.

Looking out on a cold white view from our chair
Where sated, we can walk away and forget
Is it all a feeling and nothing more than an affair
Or is it something where we can always trust?
We will follow the lives that Fate will declare
Looking for each other to love and fully trust.
We will live a live that others dream to dare
It cannot be a feeling for nothing, with no debt
Instead it will be a dance, a pas de deux.



-----

The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

From the dawn of time he has played his part
See the angels gather round to hear him play
The music has reached each mind and heart
Telling his tales of wars won and joyous loves
Most times of pleasure and how lovers start.
But listen to him best at the break of dawn
Hear his music saying it's time now to restart
As the new sun rises from the sea at start of day
Playing for peace and love and the joy they impart.

I saw the piper play once at the break of dawn
His body framed against the rising morn he stood
Nature stood still, for awhile the wind was none
The birds and beasts were stood together listening
The piper played his melody to all that was drawn
No matter what was our race or what our creed
At the break of day he plays and always alone
For the piper is there to pipe in our time of good
Where Angels shared with mortals breath indrawn.



-----

Silent Kiss

Your voice is a kiss resting on my lips so fine
When you smile, I cannot leave your eyes.
Even when absent, I can see your eyes shine
Feeling like a tongue of longing desire
Your name is like a drink of vintage wine
Crushed from the most heavenly grapes
It flows easy down my throat, so divine
And tastes just like the finest Debortoli
Deep and dark, caressing me, I'm supine.

Your voice is a lullaby to a peaceful place
Taking me to wherever we should abide.
Inside of me, inside my dreams is a space
Where I find you, listening to my heart
As our heartbeats and souls meld in grace
You are like that kiss from a dream,
That wakes me when the morning comes,
Seeing you my lady, smiling by my side,
How can I ever leave your eyes, your face?



-----

Values of Love

When you look at someone long enough,
You discover their humanity and spirituality,
But too often there is the avoidance of stuff
A disbelief in reality, what is really the truth
Are they avoiding what they are ashamed of?
The eyes of a child see only what is outside,
Without any concept of the persons stuff
The child smiles and is rewarded some way,
And so it starts to learn to avoid life's rebuff.

A child has no concept of lies, only reward,
With no understanding of imagination and truth.
With time the child learns love, and to be adored,
Or alternatively fear, lies, rejection, and hate
And in time learns it's what the parent can afford.
The child only learns what has been taught,
And its path in life becomes never explored.
If only adults looked through a child's eyes
And turned simple faith and love into reward.



-----

Who you are

I love you not for what, but who you are
One side you are so determined, strong
You help and support all you are a star
Even though you feel so broken inside
A strong person, there's no one on a par
But I love you for your other side also
One who is unsure and does not go far
Afraid of the unknown in case its wrong
Does not like uncertainty or the bizarre

Even though sometimes you feel like crying
Even though sometimes you need some aid
You get where you are simply just by trying
I'm where I am by the warm look in your eyes
A person that makes me feel like I'm flying
A person that loves to be constantly kissed
That loves a hug and is always complying
I hope I'm around a long time my dear maid
So that I can show you, my love is undying.

Trust - Sequence

Trust - Texte

You were wandering in the mist
I was lost and walking alone
Then we met, two alike souls
Recognising each other, or is it Deja Vu
The fog is still there but we are no longer blind
It grows dark as the deep fog swirls around
We doubt because we cannot see,
But now we have trust we're a team
Even though at first we wandered blind.

-----

#1 Desire

You were wandering alone in the mist
In your wandering you found desire
Because we met, fell in love and kissed
I became your desire, from a simple flame
Into a white heat, always seeming to exist
In time the flame died down, but still hot
We can see now, that it will always persist
Is it not better to be able to see your desire
Than spending a lifetime having missed.

-----

#2 Solitude

I was lost and walking alone
Uncaring of my direction, or solitude
The fog lifted, I realised what I couldn't postpone
In all my life I had created nothing
A foundation of nothingness was shown,
A building of bitterness, rooms with emptiness
Now there is hope, the fogs lifted, I can atone
Now caring of my direction, and solitude
I have everything, I am full no longer unknown

-----

#3 Dignity

Then we met, two alike souls
And you have taught me about dignity
And brought a meaning and made me whole
The more I learn from you, the less dense my fog
The brighter my day, the more I have control
Now we have taken the same path together
Walking along a path that makes us whole
This path is where you taught me dignity
Let's plot our paths together, take control.

-----

#4 Recognition

Recognising each other, or is it Deja Vu
Or is it recognition, how do we know
And how do I know it is me or you, you?
When we touch for the first time this life
Tell me you didn't know me nothing I drew
And about your heart in rhythm with mine?
The meeting, the fluttering never a debut
We're here recognising, knowing we know
We are one again sharing loves break through.

-----

#5 The Fog is Still There

The fog is still there but we are no longer blind
Curiosity asks what is the fog made of?
Merely unanswered questions and doubts we find.
The answers to the questions we'll find in time
Doubts will vanish with knowledge in kind
Walk with me love and share and learn with me
Remove all doubts we will take the path assigned
And learn what the fog and life is made of
When the great examiner calls we'll be one mind.

-----

#6 The Guide

It grows dark as the deep fog swirls around
But now we have learned to trust each other
From this learning we see love now abounds
You take my hand asking me to be our guide.
But who am I in whom you have now crowned
Who am I to whom you can trust your soul?
Move on hoping 'tis the right path we've found
We will fulfil the promises of Eternity together
Our belief once again clears this fog all aground.

-----

#7 Illusions

We doubt because we cannot see,
Do we really need to see to trust?
So many times we ignore what can be
Imagining what are so many false truths,
Creating in our minds what we wish to see
Hearing the words that have not been said
So many times our eyes are closed to reality
Only the blind can see truth and trust.
Whilst we see only in what we expect to see.

-----

#8 Freedom

But now we have trust we're a team
Created when we fell in love you and I
A greater gift of freedom it would seem
Willingly we gave ourselves to each other
Freedom is what we felt and not a scheme
As we broke down the walls tears fell
Now we have opened fields of dreams
Each one created as our time went by.
Others brand new and see them beam.

-----

#9 Inspiration

Even though at first we wandered blind
We heard each other's voice inspiring
Along paths that once we couldn't find
That darkness is lit by moonlight now.
Although the future is still not defined
We no longer fear to go because we know
Our future is what we'll see in our mind
And every day more love we're acquiring.
On this mountain top see the stars aligned.

Bewitching Spells

She arose from water thro' mystic clouds
revealing the magic of the dawn arising
mists of the night encircled her shroud
she looks to the heavens darkened sky
where mystical mists below endowed
within a future of past magical insights
yet love forbidden shall not overcrowd
within past illusions of her love reviving
she calls his name with promises vowed.

Bewitched the spells of deep incantations
that may enchant her unsuspected victim
passed on down from several generations
luring and enticing with her hypnotic eyes
that shall engage all of love`s expectations
it shall not be within power that he refuse
for love shall be a most tempting sensation
that may just over tease the fragile system
yet shalt do no harm with a little flirtation.



-----

Dark Unto Light

Cursed be upon this darkened night
of forked tongue and evil cantations
devoid of flames that lends no light
within the depth of an earthen tomb
where blasphemus demons reunite
unto the darkness of the unforsaken
spirits of the damned have no insight
never to return within reincarnation
cast upon evil has no sacraficial right

Blessed be spirits that angels embrace
who may sleep within the arms of love
those who redeem within Edens grace
within the solace of a heavenly garden
where the arch of moonbows interlace
within the sacred shadow of a rainbow
shall ever this heavenly beauty deface
of a sacredness that reigns from above
that none but divine spirits may retrace.



-----

Fantasia

Faerie like creatures dwell upon a glade
tiny shadows weave within the suns rays
within long past fantasy that nature bade
time hath no presence in what was past
yet dwells deeply within a past cherade
for sunrays and moonshine that lingers
thro' a childs dreams shall ever cascade
but dreams of fantasies if only a phase
pressed within leaves of images made.

Deep the enchantment of a childs mind
within a display of everlasting treasure
all that within her story book shall find
that no other child shall ever misplace
there was no other that truth shall bind
for her gift of nature remained unique
but a collectors arts shall never unwind
nor take away a childs gift of pleasure
when a gift may only be one of a kind.


Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book.

ll fuoco dell 'Amore Divino
(the fire of divine love)


Shall I compare a lovers touch to magic
for magical his touch it surely shall be
If a kiss missed should ever be as tragic
what is love if it cannot give as freely
when the trials of love are so dramatic
may it then be akin to spells of sorcery
a dramatic approach to future nostalgic
only within the righteous eye may see
when a lovers touch remains realistic.

Shall I compare love to an exotic dream
within heart and soul I fantasize much
deep within I may love to the extreme
magical moments shall be as predicted
passion within lovers shall e-er redeem
a divinity of eternal love within flame
within passion shall be all it may seem
and all it ever took was just one touch
as fingers met thro`a calming stream.



-----

Magic Eye Of Horus

Have no illusion of a demonic ghost
dark of occult within binding spells
supernatural source that evils host
deep within the magic eye of Horus
who forsaw spirits more than most
amidst the incantation of an illusion
where only a sacred sorcery boasts
all of which a magic optimist expels
for he is not of the same innermost.

Magic never was of spiritual exorcism
for enchanted magicians oft times be
both are of a much different catacysm
yet fascination of both may ever reign
within most non believers pessimism
where there is a thin margin of belief
magic shall not be akin to spiritualism
beliefs of the living shall e-er be free
whatever after shall e-er be optimism.



-----

Magic Of Love

The magic of love shall bear no disguise.
For they feel the tender warmth within
passion reveals all within a lovers eyes
that entice the heart with a mystic glow
as new stars shine from the mystic skies
touched within the purity of immortality
let this not be prophesies of the unwise
for a love everlasting shall suffer no sin
there are ways and means to improvise .

The magic of love shall glow deep within
a tenderness within that warms the heart
Oh how this feeling of enticement begins
to be rapturous within a vestal innocence
the sensation of touch shall forever win
simplicity within yields much upon fantasy
in all innocence shall not be classed as sin
shall remain both together never to impart
to cherish each other thro' thick and thin.



-----

Magical Realism

Sadness dwells within a lovers heart
when the magic of passion has gone
as the realism of magic breaks apart
never a thing cast aside but to hope
that love shall cherish another start
sorry was never an easy word to say
to love unconditionally is only an art
that a magical realism depends upon
enchantment within shall never part.

Shadows may prevail within the mind
love everlasting may never be as easy
until submitted both lovers entwined
shall ever be a part of desirous passion
past tense of sorrow shall ever unwind
forgiveness of past, as a future prevails
knowing this love shall be theirs to find
may only be one part of eternal ecstasy
which magical realisms shall ever bind .



-----

Merlins Nemesis

Cast not thine eyes upon a magical view
to perceive her vision shall cast a spell
creating a flame that may burn as true
and the heat of your torment shall bind
for flames of desire's shall misconstrue
to hate with a passion deep in her soul
she concocts her potion of deathly hue
that severs a tongue so not one can tell
fierce within anger as her hatred grew.

Never was such a witch in Arthurs day
upon a Kingdom so feared of dragons
may not of been if Merlin had his say
he was never one to trust her powers
for he was never to blame in anyway
Legend has it that a wizard knew best
but wicked evils may not ever display
of her inflamed potion within flagons
yet Merlins magic she may not betray.


Morgana Sorceress of King Arthurs Legend.

Mystical Odyssey

I saw an asteroid in the sky last night
but then I don`t really think that it was
whatever it was it was shining bright
and it was coming down towards earth
unless it burnt itself out within flight
yet I saw no fumes of dehydrated fuel
heard not a sound yet thought I might
the silent sound barriers had no cause
to frighten what was beyond the light

The fullest moon shone all but a quarter
and that must of been what I really saw
the dark side of moon was only of water
reflecting the ocean from mirrored skies
there is never a system that may charter
for moon and stars are from empty space
but human instincts shall for ever barter
what I saw there was earths bound law
yet wonders it was that followed after.



-----

Mystic Presence

Cast not a shadow upon a sunlit morn`
within magic of the mystic faerie ring
let the promise of fantasy be reborne
within mystique of the mornings dew
that awakens to jewels of golden corn
to adorns the crown of a faerie queen
awakens to the song of an elfins horn
upon mists her voice of love may sing
of a magic fantasy once more re-borne

Soft as a breeze that so gently caress
mystical presence of magical emotions
within eternity love may forever bless
the magic touch of everlasting romance
fantasies that linger may ever progress
within a pledge of mystique and magic
that lingers eternally no more or no less
may succumb unto everlasting devotion
that mystic fantasies of lovers possess.



-----

Perfumed Garden

Just to stroll within a garden of bliss
shall bless the love that lies within
that seals a lovers affectionate kiss
such wonder when blossoms bloom
nothing upon nature shall go amiss
of love that both lovers shall revive
within future memory to reminisce
exotic perfumes that entice therein
but only true love shall nurture this.

Casting a spell of magic enticements
to behold both lovers within a trance
within exotic power of Eastern scents
that drives the senses unto delirium,
both lovers sharing sweet sentiments
heavenly perfume from Edens garden
shall nurture within natures elements
that spiritual lovers shall ever enhance
in a perfumed garden of deep content.



-----

Spell Bound

Casting spells within magical incantations
bewitched obsessions of voodoo charms
of a conjurer`s sorcerery within innovation
that succumbs to the hypnotic spell binder
psychics predicted paranormal perceptions
`neath the enchantment of a mystic moon
mesmerized within a hypnotic fascination
of witch craft that may succumb to no harm
within mystical powers of a re -incarnation.

Yet we look to the earth for herbal potions
wild are the herbs enhancement includes
balms that heals all within natures lotions
spirit raising fruits that bears sweet nectar
that lifts the heart of unsuspected notions
within goodness that nurtures earths floor
locked within the heart of pure emotions
are cast within the spores of high altitude
ever to seek properties within devotion.

Spells Of Fortune

Awaken thy heart to the cards of arcana
believe what they predict upon a tomb
arise thro' spirits of the goddess Ariana
cast deep within the crust from volcanic
ashes that converted the isle of Atlanta
deep within power that shall not stand
as adrift from her presented tarantula
be it fate drove her to a dark catacomb
a spiders serum on a poisoned antenna.

Ariana had suffered not of propaganda
bravery abundant from a hand unto limb
aspiration bequeathed her spiritual aura
creating a contentment as akin to mythic
a bonding of senses upon a lovers quota
departing shall never be on such a mind
an animated life that returns an agenda
boasts of a new love that may succumb
awakening past dreams of memoranda.


Ariana Goddess Of Truth

The Wizard Ponders

Here shall he open a book of spells
tho' pages are now worn with age
what magic portrays who then tell
when ancient wizards are now gone
within a volume that magic befell
spells of a past supernatural force
illusioned wizards fore told so well
from an ancient mystic fragile page
where spells within the occult dwell.

Bewitched within this psychic science
telepathy unto minds of paranormal
upon intuition he bares much reliance
with his supernatural interpretation
he shall offer no clairvoyant pretence
of communication within spiritualism
that shall release upon a transference
which upon spirit form may be normal
when ancient prophesies make sense.

Purple Dawn

Shadows of deepest night invade dreams
Take no respect for the sleeping eyes
As they fill the mind with haunted screams
Reliving the thoughts of yesterday
Vagrant memories too real it seems
When echoed again in realms of sleep
Skeletons of time in silver beams
As they dance across the midnight skies
Call upon the mind's own dark extremes.

The nightmares of pain that never fade
When agonies of thinking begin
Make sleeping a chore that's left unpaid
While the body shakes over again
Until the comfort of purple shade
Embraces the soul in the waking dawn
No more is the heart beating afraid
And stolen warmth returns to the skin
For dreams no longer cut like a blade.

-----

Turning Point

My heart in pain could not see the light
This path I must walk alone, I knew
The longest path where I must face fright
For living had nothing left for me
A silver blade glistened, silver bright
To shed the blood and release the fear
And tears I wept denied future sight
While I gazed upon the face of you
Seeking strength within to last the night.

I looked again and called out a name
And in the darkness I felt me burn
A soul imprisoned in torment's flame
In that fire I felt him rise and leave
Discarding the past still wrapped in shame
No looking back to say a goodbye
His time had come, he must stake his claim
From this point of death I shall return
For he is me; we stand as one, the same.

Ascension

I wonder if your soul is still around
Or that it's left to lands beyond this Earth.
A place where consciousness does not confound,
It is the fastest way for sharing minds.
Here people understand their common ground
And no one wants to hide his inner dreams.
Thoughts travel with the speed of light, expound
To clarify the path from death to birth.
Here, failing hearts won't keep you to the ground.

Instead you'll fly and rise above this Earth,
When looking down, maybe you'll see us strive.
You have fulfilled life's struggling after birth
Your mind is free at last to grow, expand.
I hope your soul has found a secure berth,
A place where worries cease to be, fade out-
Where gentle peacefulness gives room for mirth
Your weary heart is strengthened to revive.
This land beyond, I dare to think, adds worth.
