For The Time Being That You Have No Need Of Me

feel confident
and be just like anybody on the street
do not think about
meeting me
sometime in the future
for i am nothing but a piece
of useless button
that you can throw
in space and feel
no emptiness in your pocket

somehow
there is a part in you that breaks
perhaps your heart
or your
stomach
you feel the hunger of love
the coldness that seeks the warmth
the word that feels the need of the tongue
so that it can be uttered

then you shall look for me
but i shall take the revenge

i will no longer be there anymore.

The Only Thing That I Have Left

(clay blaker)
(track 3 - time 3:23)
Some people say Im one of those guys with blessings in life overlooked
Sometimes I feel like the tatter torn pages of some old paperback book
All the places Ive played and the money Ive made still Ive got nothing to show
And the only thing that I have left in the whole wide world is you
You put your whole life into somethin you love and you never get that one big break
Thatll take you out of the back street bars and put you on center stage
But a million tears and a million beers have just about washed me up
And the only thing that I have left in the whole wide world is you
I gave it all I had every night for all these years
Pourin out my soul til it was gone
I spread myself so thin and Im just barely hangin on
But tonight Im with you and you can carry me through
Just love me
cuz the only thing that I have left in the whole wide world is you
I gave it all I had every night for all these years
Pourin out my soul til it was gone
I spread myself so thin and Im just barely hangin on
But tonight Im with you and you can carry me through
Just love me
cuz the only thing that I have left in the whole wide world is you
Oh, is you

You'll Reach The Peak Of That Literary Hill

Who is to say which poetry is best?
How can it possibly be defined?
Which type is superior when put to the test?
All variations are surely entwined.

Strong words written stand the test of time,
Whether in poetry or in a good song,
Some will just flow whereas others will rhyme,
That doesn't mean either is wrong.

You may hate the words or the rhythm of a tune,
The content will still make you think,
Is the writer a genius or perhaps a buffoon?
With either there's always a link.

Some tell a story just like a book,
The written word can play games with your heart,
When you read one line common sense is forsook,
From that poem you don't want to depart.

It will get you talking that much is true,
You'll condemn it or proclaim it is great,
In some cases the reader may well want to sue,
You can guarantee it will open up a debate.

Who are any of us to judge each other?
Yet critics have the power to destroy,
Freedom of speech is what they smother,
Slagging off others they seem to enjoy.

Constructive critique can improve what is written,
Regardless of it being good or bad,
But senseless censure can leave one bitten,
It can even drive some people mad.

If you want to depart from the madness of life,
Then writing can be a great tool,
It can lift you up and rid you of strife,
Enjoying what you create is the rule.

Some of the time you can please them all,
There'll be those you never will,
As long as when writing you're having a ball,

‘' You'll Reach The Peak Of That Literary Hill ‘'

I've Done the Best I Can So You Can Do That Better

Beneath the tree
That falling leaves descended from,
I stand.
Thinking of the changes,
I have experienced being the man I am.

'She is now called 'Mama'!
Ma! Or Ms Mimmie'.
When she's with her children...
And grandchildren too!

And I look up above me to witness the branches.
The twigs!
And the wonder of the tree...
All of this ascends from!
'Matriarch she is! ', I think with no doubt.

And the birds, squirrels and all that come to visit,
Are always welcomed

And I wonder if anyone wonders...
'How can anyone disbelieve there is a God? '
How can this be done?
And by whom?
We all can't be vacant with a disconnected fate!
'Something' is planned by the doing in all of this!
'Something' is in control and knows everything that sits...
Within and 'out' of our midst.
'Something' about this most people miss.

'How can anyone disbelieve there is a God? '
And we are God's experiment!
And my 'sisters' were born to nourish the flourishment.
And I can see...
Looking at 'this' tree before me I inspect.
And 'It' observes...knowing!
Encouraging those after birth and going...
After growing up,
With a gentle toughness that is meant.
'I've done the best I can so you can do that better.'

Dedicated:
To my sister Andrea. Mim, Mimmie and MimmieD
'You have 'eight' grandchildren? EIGHT? How, Mimmie? '
Where was I when all of this happened?
And Tammy and Lisa? ? Naw. No way, yo?
You can 'not' be in your 'fffffffffffffaaug. Getting 'more'
mature. Geeeessshhh. HOW do you all get so much older
than me? Overnight it seems.
LOL

Love you,
Larry

On The Last Minute That You Boarded The Plane

on the last minute that you boarded
the plane
and you think
it is the one owned by God,

sorry, so sorry, that plane left
a minute ago,
and you were not
on its manifest

you boarded the wrong plane
and that is the truth

enjoy your ride,
and pray

who knows
you may catch up on the next flight

to purgatory.

I Have The Sole Right To Protect You

Many people would like to have you,

A girl is fond of having you
to beautify her hair on her head,

A lover would like to impress his girl
and offer her, A ROSE, to get her love,

A leader, Jawaharlal Nehru, kept you
with pleasure close to his heart,

But, O'.. I have the sole right to protect you,
Said the thorn in the stock of flower ROSE!

From the first moment that I saw you

From the first moment that I saw you,
you are constantly in my thoughts,
while your image lingers with me
as if you stick to my soul like burr-weed,
or like a virus from which I cannot be escape,
are bounded to me spirit to spirit,
leaving a impression in all my body and senses
as if it had been divinely destined to be so.
From the first time that I loved you
I am caught in my humanity
while I know that without you my life is meaningless
and no other woman I even want to be aware of;
without you in my life I am lost
and all of my days are meaningless.

The Only Way To Understand What We Have Been Talking About...

let me write about peace then.

the irony is that peace has no use of words,
like silence,

when you utter it, it is not there anymore.

let me paint peace then, ah, the very sound of the brush disturbs it,
the way we choose the color, creates an argument

let me have a camera and take a picture of peace,
disregard the click and the flash

just imagine it,

early dawn, a fisherman casts his net on a noiseless sea
all the fish have gone to the other side of the island.

the earlier you accept that you have been rightfully abandoned
the easier is it to understand what we have been talking about.

About the Little Girl that Beat Her Sister

Go, go, my naughty girl, and kiss
Your little sister dear;
I must not have such things as this,
And noisy quarrels here.

What! little children scratch and fight,
That ought to be so mild;
Oh! Mary, it's a shocking sight
To see an angry child.

I can't imagine, for my part,
The reason for your folly;
She did not do you any hurt
By playing with your dolly.

See, see, the little tears that run
Fast from her watery eye:
Come, my sweet innocent, have done,
'Twill do no good to cry.

Go, Mary, wipe her tears away,
And make it up with kisses:
And never turn a pretty play
To such a pet as this is.

The Sun Will Shine and You Will Know

Clear that brush,
From your own path.
Chip to diminish each obstacle.
Fall to your knees if you have to in frustration.
Shed a few tears and get back on your feet.
Lift up your head and dare to become defeated.
The Sun will shine and you will know suddenly...
Those efforts you make,
Are more than enough to continue on your way.
And keep moving.

Stay to complain each day when it rains...
And clouds will follow you.
That's what they do...
To ensure you are soaked in sorrow.
Seeking to find gloom...
You from them can borrow.
And you will share that with others.
Who will try to convince you,
There is nothing like wallowing away in grief!

The Option To Do As You Please Clause

The bottom line,
Is needing no signature.
Or a validation of that which takes place.
The bottom line,
Whether definitions are agreed upon or not...
Will ensure a captivating of attention,
Regardless of the frowns shown...
On faces demanding they are entitled,
To additional suitable options.

'But we have not agreed upon the options!
And we protest the tone of your delivery.'

~And again...
As you can see,
This bottom line is quite specific.
You will notice...
The Option To Do As You Please Clause,
Has been eliminated.
Thank you for reminding me.
Sometimes I forget to use,
My velvet vocal touches.
How's this?
More soothing?

Take your time.
Read it again!
NEXT.~

In Spite Of All The Danger

In spite of all the danger,
In spite of all that may be
I'll do anything for you,
Anything you want me to,
If you'll be true to me.
In spite of all the heartache,
That you may cause me,
I'll do anything for you,
Anything you want me to,
If you'll be true to me.
I'll look after you
Like I've never done before.
I'll keep all the others
From knocking at your door.
In spite of all the danger,
In spite of all that may be,
I'll do anything for you,
Anything you want me to,
If you'll be true to me.
In spite of all the heartache
That you may cause me,
I'll do anything for you,
Anything you want me to,
If you'll be true to me.
I'll do anything for you,
Anything you want me to,
If you'll be true to me

The Danger Of Writing Defiant Verse

And now I have another lad!
No longer need you tell
How all my nights are slow and sad
For loving you too well.

His ways are not your wicked ways,
He's not the like of you.
He treads his path of reckoned days,
A sober man, and true.

They'll never see him in the town,
Another on his knee.
He'd cut his laden orchards down,
If that would pleasure me.

He'd give his blood to paint my lips
If I should wish them red.
He prays to touch my finger-tips
Or stroke my prideful head.

He never weaves a glinting lie,
Or brags the hearts he'll keep.
I have forgotten how to sigh-
Remembered how to sleep.

He's none to kiss away my mind-
A slower way is his.
Oh, Lord! On reading this, I find
A silly lot he is.

The Same Love That Made Me Laugh

(bill withers)
Your love is like a chunk of gold
Hard to get and its hard to hold
Just like a rose thats soft to touch
Love has thorns and it hurts so much
Well then why must the same love
That made me laugh make me cry
Well now think of love as sitting on a mountain
Think of it of being a great big rock
Well I did it before you start to roll me down
Because once youve started you cant make it stop
Ill give it all I have to give
And if you dont want me
I dont want to live
Well then why must the same love
That made me laugh make me cry
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why you wanna make me cry?
Why do you wanna make me cry?

The Same Love That Made Me Laugh

[Bill Withers' hit from 1974]
Your love is like a a chunk of gold
Hard to gain, and hard to hold
Like a rose that's soft to touch
Love has gone, and it hurts so much
Well and why...
Must the same love that made me laugh
Make me cry?
Well now you think of love as sitting on a mountain
Think of it as being a great big rock
Won't you think before you started to roll it down
Because once you start it, you can't make it stop
I've given all I have to give
And if you don't want me
I don't want to live
Well and why...
Must the same love that made me laugh:
Why you wanna make me cry? [5x]
Why you wanna make me lay in my pillow
Just cryin' like a weeping willow
Why you wanna make me cry? [4x]
Why you wanna make me mess in my pillow
I'm just cryin' like a weeping willow
Why you wanna make me cry? [3x]

In the Saying of That 'No

Sometimes people have to be told 'no.
No debate.
Just a 'no'.

And that is difficult,
To do that 'no'.
To let it go and be done.

Have you tried to say 'no'
To someone you love.
With the ripping out of your own heart,
In your hand.
Gripped around its beating...
And dripping blood.

No matter how you dramaticize that,
To someone...
Saying 'no' with no 'uh-huh' attached,
Can be devastating if handle incorrectly.

One who gets into a fix like this...
Should quietly remove themselves to another room,
To weep.
As quietly as possible.
Try not to give away any weak spots.
Knowing that in the saying of that 'no'...
Will get piercing dagger eye contact,
Throughout the upcoming week.
With or without sighted weaknesses.
Some dare to be told 'no'.

Some so close,
Someone will be determine,
To have another feel regret!

(That Don't Change) The Way I Feel About You

(George Strait)
My ol' pickup truck, seems it just can't keep up
And my boots ain't as new as I'd like
But that don't change the way I feel about you
Just the way that you feel about me
Tomorrow's a new day, start changin' your old ways
You told me this time and again
But I'm not the kind to ever give up on you
Just because you've done give up on me
I've tried and I've tried to keep you satisfied
I've give about all I can give
But that don't change the way I feel about you
Just the way that you feel about me
Spendin' and a offendin', never tendin' or mendin'
And talkin' about bein' a star
But you'd be surprised if you opened your eyes
And took a look to see just who you are
I've tried and I've tried to keep you satisfied
I've give about all I can give
But that don't change the way I feel about you
Just the way that you feel about me

The Man In Love With You

Im not the hero
Who will always save the day
Dont always wear the white hat
Dont always know the way
I may not even be the dream
You wanted to come true
But Ill always be the man in love with you
Im not the key
That opens every door
Dont have the power
To give you all you want and more
But when youre needing something special
You can hold onto
Ill always be the man in love with you
I could never work miracles
That maybe others who can do what I cant do
But no one else can be
As good as me
In loving you
So when the world wont turn
The way you wish it would
And the dreams you have dont come alive
As often as they should
Remember that theres someone there whos heart is always true
Ill always be the man in love with you
Remember that theres someone there whos heart is always true
Someone there to help you make it through
Ill always be the man in love with you

The Only Thing That Looks Good On Me Is You

I don't look good in no Armani Suits
No Gucci shoes - or designer boots
I've tried the latest lines from A to Z
But there's just one thing that looks good on me

Chorus

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

I'm not satisfied with Versace style
Put those patent leather pants - in the circular file
Sometimes I think - I might be lookin' good
But there's only one thing that fits me like it should

Chorus

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

Ya it's you - it could only be you
Nobody else will ever do
Ya baby it's you - that I stick to
Ya we stick like glue

Chorus

The only thing I want
The only thing I need
The only thing I choose
The only thing that looks good on me...is you

The Labyrinth Wild It Leads You

The labyrinth wild it leads you
Towards the smile that feeds you
The woodman wild in a shaman’s frenzy
Spent the night below the sea.


Out of the blue, through blood shot eyes
The birds of morning’s song have risen
And still I have not known the realm of sleep,
Still I am keeping watchful eyes upon the moment in descent,
Scouring the boundaries of my vision with sour yet soulful detachment
From the world outside at war, raging upon itself.

I can hear music upon the air,
Small vibrations from another world
The Faint echoes of dying stars
Susurrus murmurings within ancient forests

The gods of scented nightmares are calling me a small boy.
Fate is calling me her toy.

Lost and frozen within the moment
Stood alone before the phoenix rising

What am I to do?

I can see upon the horizon a goddess blue
Beckoning with open arms a world entwining you.
