Love And Hate

Imagine there’s wonderful love in your life,

All of a sudden it turns into strife.

Future, perspective, all of it gone

And you’ve got no idea what you have done.

*

You start learning, what you had was but lies

and love, hope and memories, it all dies.

Life seems a blur and you’re walking through hell

And all there’s left is an empty shell.

*

This was the man who asked you for your hand

he wanted to marry you he said; a future on sand…

You fly across the world, wearing bubble pink specs

while all he ever wanted was sex.

*

To the same time, and that really makes you sick

he tells you again, if he could, you were the one he would pick!

The man is a liar, a sociopath of worst sort

And here you realize what he did was just tort!

*

Confidence, trust and beauty are void

All emotions in you are badly destroyed.

All he’s ever done was lie and screw

Shadows creep out of the darkness in you.

*

Anger and rage concentrate in your heart

tearing all emotions inside you apart.

You feel used, humiliated, hurt to be told of

him spreading word it was a “one-sided” love.

*

An emotion of darkness and terrible black,

crawls up in you, spreads out on skin and back.

You try to identify it, simply and clear

it’s neither pain, nor anger, nor is it fear.

*

It’s darker, it’s blacker, it’s shadow land.

You can’t control it, it gets out of hand.

Then you identify it, almost too late

what you’re feeling now is purest hate.

*

Ask yourself now, will I permit

that hatred will take over my whit?

That no matter what he’s done wrong…

is he really worth an emotion this strong?

*

Won’t it be better to keep my heart clear

of an emotion this poisonous and queer?

Probably yes, is the answer I trench

And still my inside wants revenge!

*

Thank God – I’m a writer… is all I can think

in my book I can make his testicles shrink,

I can shoot, drown and hang him, I know it’s quite tough!

My pen will avenge me – that will be enough.

Black creature – a riddle

*****

For the longest time in history

this creature was a mystery.

An animal, evil in its eyes

it was called death in disguise.

**

Considered a witches confidant,

it was the bad women’s best friend.

Mystical and black as coal

it was considered carrier of a human soul.

**

It was called dirty, and ‘devil’s slave’

often found on a newly dug grave.

It was attacked with slingshots and stones

caught and tortured to the bones.

**

So many of them had to die

thinking about it makes me cry.

Still nowadays do people sneer

while they actually feel fear.

**

In truth who would have thought

they all have a quite bright spot.

Intelligent and family bound

protective and smart they stand their ground.

**

Proud and clever one can see

them in wolves’ and predators’ company.

 They always warn who’s ever there

of danger, darkness from in the air.

**

They love to collect some sparkling things

having lairs with silver, gems and golden rings.

They’ve got commanders, lieutenants and even spies,

they comfort each other if one cries.

**

For centuries they were called bad

it took a while until humans had

accepted that they are quite rife

and too insight into their life.

**

Meanwhile it’s clear he’s bright and black

but doesn’t bring departed back.

He’s social, smart and never craven

Our big, dark, shiny, handsome raven.

A very special water drop

***************************************************************************************************

Among humankind there’s one thing rife

It’s given to all, it’s hard – and it’s ‘life’.

Some, they say: “Do best you can”.

And others state: “Follow your plan.”

**

The most important thing for us

more than food, embrace or a buss

is liquid, clear, without a taste

We need to drink, to wash and not to waste.

**

It’s valuable, nothing we can miss

It’s life, it’s blood, it’s more than bliss.

Easy to guess what I talk about

Of course it’s water, there’s no doubt.

**

It’s found in springs, in ponds, in lakes,

It’s hidden in rain and in snowflakes.

But there is much more and that is rare

The drops we hold or so we dare.

**

Humor, it can make us laugh

when we tease and when we chaff.

Holding our belly, unable to quit

and roar with laughter at a wit.

**

That’s one moment we produce

that amount of water, a priceless juice.

It’s rare and still it is unique

when it leaves the eye runs down our cheek.

 

**

Even more invaluable is the other sort,

caused by pain, by fear or even tort.

To hurt someone no matter who

is cruel and mean – we know that’s true!

**

That water drop which caused by pain

is all the worse when shed in vain.

No diamond on Earth will be able to pay

for this one drop shed that one day.

 

**

It’s hope that dies and confidence

it’s joy been killed by no more chance.

Emotion directed by grief and fear,

and loss that caused this…

… one…

… sad…

tear.

Beauty, Danger and Pride – A Riddle

The sharpest eye in animal world

is said this bird does own,

He sees a mouse between the rocks

no matter how high he’s flown.

**

He is a predator, of beauty and strength

a symbol of power to all,

when he circles the skies with majestic pride

and is always successful in haul.

**

Unexpected, hidden and in shocking speed

he falls out of the big blue skies,

there’s not the slightest chance to  escape

when his screaming doomed prey dies.

**

He is family bound, this beautiful creature

doing for kids whatever he can.

He will hunt and protect, no matter what costs

to protect his kids and his clan.

**

A symbol for humans, for us who admire

this fantastic animal who is our sign

for hope, for pride, for solidarity

a strong picture who shows us to shine.

**

With his white head and tail, his chocolate wings

his strength and his power are pure and true;

a symbol, a guidepost for our country’s hope

the epitome of the Red, White and Blue!

Thoughts on Fall

A time to start and a time to end

A time to break and a time to mend.

There’s so much that’s old and less is new

there’s still some warmth but cold it’s too.

**

Fall is time for plans and range

it’s time to prepare and time to change.

Switch the summer for the winter

that’s the season of the ‘tinter’.

**

Watch how nature does its share

new colors, new smiles and new clothes to wear!

Instead of pink and blue and green

we’ve got yellow, burgundy and ‘coffee-bean’.

**

Orange, brown and terracotta red,

leaves are falling, trees will shed.

Pumpkin season is ready to come,

We drink eggnog, warm chocolate and tea with rum.

**

Flames are dancing in the fireplace,

cold wind is leaving red spots in our face.

Fog is covering the brownish ground

Sharp wind around the house is normal sound.

**

And still it’s a wonderful homey season

in our house for more than one reason.

The world is enchanted by a special glow,

Just before the world will be covered in powdery snow.

**

There’s so much more to be said to third time of year

There’s so much to look forward to and nothing to fear.

Not even when ghosts, witches and vampires will mime,

Enjoy Halloween before Christmas time.

Dangerous Darkness – A Riddle

When sunbeams shine on skies above

light the world , the fields and all thereof.

Deep in the woods where it’s cool and dark

the life of danger’s set to park…

**

Sleep comes easy, rest does too,

It’s important to let strength re-new.

The night will be another fight

to get the pray and some to bite.

**

Finally from dusk to dawn

the time has come to test the brawn.

in silence and with secret swings

the danger has prepared its wings.

**

Soundless floating on the wind

it finds its victim, has it pinned.

A cry in highest pitch and pain

and the predator has won his gain.

**

Quickly carrying it to hide.

three beaks to feed with strength and pride.

The night just started, much to do

mommy flies – for kids to chew.

**

No prey will have the time to fear

death will come, with none to hear.

No sound, no smell, it will go fast.

And no memory to even last.

**

The predator will eat it whole

later we’ll find them by the pole.

A pellet out of bones and fur

a victim’s life, gone in a blur.

**

But danger’s kids will proudly grow

to become more predators to show.

Beautiful and lethal, in secret to hide

More danger, more murder in silence to glide.

**

Adjusting with nature, in dawn and light

during night and day a beautiful sight.

Eyes like candles , attentive and wise

a master of death and in disguise.

**

Of course this danger is protected in weathers

covered from head to toe in feathers.

Something some call without respect “fowl”

I’m talking, no doubt, about the beautiful owl.

**

Spring poetry

Picture courtesy of: http://globe-views.com/dreams/spring.html
Picture courtesy of: http://globe-views.com/dreams/spring.html

*

Sunbeams touch the cooled down ground

the skies turn blue, I hear the sound

of birds in trees and on the wire

the twitters which I do admire.

*

The plants turn green and so do trees

I see the wasps, flies and the bees

flying, humming to the flowers

spring time does have all these powers.

*

Word awakes and colors spear

nature seems to reappear.

I feel the warmth right on my skin

the circle of life is to begin.

*

Here I see the growing corn

there I see some babies born.

A litter full of baby cats

of dogs or rabbits, even bats.

*

It’s beautiful to look around

plants, animals and things I found.

Spring is great in every style

It makes me sing, and dance and smile.
