If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were.

Orphans Wandering (So Long as Love)

dontcryitsonlymike:

Orphans wandering
our way unknown
lost yes, but no
we’re not alone

We are unbroken
forever whole
if love yet burns
within our soul

While teardrops fall
like empty rain
through the sorrow
and endless pain

All we could desire
is ours today
so long as love
shall guide our way

Goodnight Love

dontcryitsonlymike:

The stars illuminate the heavens
the moon beams with sheer delight
as it is above, so too it’s below
all is well indeed and all is right
I leave each of you in the care of God
and bid you love as I say goodnight

Love,
Mike <3

Those Scars

dontcryitsonlymike:

You never miss what you never had
oh, but all the things you threw away
and all the love that once was yours
the life a wiser man would have today
those scars they do run deep indeed

To My Best Friend

shamanfox:

Love has made me so free
that the earth in all it’s beauty
somehow insults me. Tempting
with mantle heat, magnetic
gravitational pulling, coaxing.
Love has lit the fire within me
now, you see those old words
are drowning in the sea.
Love, Love, Love
has always just been me.
Has always just been this captive
bird, until another love set
me free. I fly so freely love
that I know what this gross word
means. (to me) It taste like sunshine
on moonbeams. It rides a tornado
through the trophy house and laughs
as folly, at lubed up window sills.
It says “I love and feel loved” while
Blue meets naked Hazel unveiled.

Mile 8

ladymycroftmansfield:

The trees were whispering today
across the river where the sailboats
tested their colorful jibs
I was practicing cadences
and watch an angel tattoo fly
in front of me while every mile
or so, I’d catch the glare of the sun
reflected on the water to my polarized
lenses feel the rhythm in my chest
steady and strong I was gratefully
alive and moving and still running

This morning, a shooting nearly took place at my kids’ high school. An eighteen year-old senior, Kyle, went to school this morning with an agenda. He was going to commit suicide while everyone looked on - according to the note found in his room. With a long-barreled shotgun, he walked towards the building after getting out of his car. At this point, faculty noticed the gun, locked everyone down and notified police. After not being able to get in through the front doors, Kyle jumped back in his car and took off. After a small chase, he took his own life in the front seat of his car once the cops were able to get him pulled over.

My two oldest teens knew Kyle well and my son has commented that he never would have seen it coming. My daughter said he had posted a few ominous things to his social media accounts, but it wasn’t anything alarming. His last Twitter post reads April 11, 2014 will be a spectacular day.

Parents, Uncles, Aunts, Brothers, Sisters, Friends, Grandparents… I urge you to keep an eye on your kidlets these days. Get to know their patterns and routines, and if something seems fishy, let them know. Ask them questions. Demand access to their social media pages. Know who they are with and what they are up to. Be the helicopters they don’t want you to be because it just might save their lives one day, or the lives of others.

you were attempting to stare
but not lock eyes
waiting to listen
without having to speak
hoping to catch my attention
yet somehow remain invisible
needing to love and be loved back
living on a shoestring budget

Memories are bullets
In the gun of life
waiting to rip through your heart
and destroy you
but then again
some are also a shield to protect you
when other’s fire hurtful thoughts
of their own
guess you need to decide
which you’ll give power to

"The Girl Who Lived on the Bottom of the Sea"
There once was a girl who lived on the bottom of the seaBorn with gills in her neck, it’s the only place she felt freeSwimming and floating, to be left alone was her wishLiving a peaceful life amidst the coral and fish.
But growing up on dry land, they called her “The Wretched Gill Girl”Cruel people kept her in a cage, and sneers and jeers they would hurlShe endured their mockery and laughter, so jealous and pettyUntil she escaped from her prison, and dove off the jetty.
Bidding the surface world “adieu”, she made a new life for herselfFormed a country of her own, deep between the continental shelfLeaving those awful folks behind, she has no more reason to frownAnd when the ice caps finally melt, she can watch them all drown. :-)

"The Girl Who Lived on the Bottom of the Sea"

There once was a girl who lived on the bottom of the sea
Born with gills in her neck, it’s the only place she felt free
Swimming and floating, to be left alone was her wish
Living a peaceful life amidst the coral and fish.

But growing up on dry land, they called her “The Wretched Gill Girl”
Cruel people kept her in a cage, and sneers and jeers they would hurl
She endured their mockery and laughter, so jealous and petty
Until she escaped from her prison, and dove off the jetty.

Bidding the surface world “adieu”, she made a new life for herself
Formed a country of her own, deep between the continental shelf
Leaving those awful folks behind, she has no more reason to frown
And when the ice caps finally melt, she can watch them all drown. :-)

I would change the term fans to friends, and Nicole is heart bombing me even as I type.  Thank you all so very much.  Yes I am having an emotional moment and in case you noticed that don’t cry dude sneaking into the picture, that’s called “There’s no shame to my game”.  Truthfully though it’s wonderful to come home to so much love.  Thank you and I hope everyone just had or is having a wonderful day.  

Love,
Mike <3 


P.S.  Gee I hope it’s not tacky to post these things on both blogs.  ;)  Goodnight everyone. 

Wouldn’t It Be Cool

dontcryitsonlymike:

Wouldn’t it be cool
wouldn’t it
ending hunger
world peace
no more 3rd world leprosy
what if
every child had a chance
every dreamer lived to dream
and every lover dared to dance
wouldn’t it be cool
wouldn’t it
I’m afraid we didn’t do too well
now we’re old and there’s
yet much to do
sorry kids, we passed the baton
and left the whole mess up to you
I know you can, and pray you will
make this world a kinder
more loving place
and do better than we did
wouldn’t it be cool
wouldn’t it
