To say that mind is a product or function of protoplasm, or of its molecular changes, is to use words to which we can attach no clear conception.

They'll Say That God Had Need Of Her..

They'll say that God had need of her
Before her time,
That angels sought her company

For beauty's sake
In mind or soul,
That stars will shine far brighter

In the night of all their dread
Now that she is dead at six years old,
And they must feel the cold

Of her departure all the more,
Like one whose ship has left the shore
For far off places,

They must have her face in mind
To keep as photograph,
In silver frame,

Until such time
That she and they
Are once again in arm's fond hold

And all the love returns
To cease the cold
And lonely days of aching grief.

I Wish You Wouldnt Say That

I wish you wouldnt say that
I thought Id have to come right over
I thought I made it clear enough
I guess Ill have to make it clearer
Say something to change your mind
Bring me back the way I used to be
If it takes forever thats all right
Say the words that Ive been trying to hear
I wish you didnt tell her
I thought od have to come right over
I thought Id have to make it clearer
Now jimmys coming over
There are places that I wont forget
And I guess Im never going back
Guess its information that I lack
Ive told lies without a hint or regret
I wish you wouldnt say that
I wish you wouldnt say that
I wish you wouldnt say that
I wish you wouldnt say that
I wish you wouldnt say that
I wish you wouldnt say that
I wish you wouldnt say that...

How Can You Say That To Me

The air that you breathe it must be poisoned
And you're dressed up in your best disguise
And I don't want to hear what you have to say
It's there in your eyes when you look away
These beautiful words are turning into lies
Chorus:
How can you say that to me
The light that still shines is just an illusion
It's just a memory from a burned out star
Its promise has come from so far away
It's fighting through sadness and years of decay
And it's a wonder it ever made it this far
(Chorus)
After all of those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
Oh now how can you say that
It's not this silence that screams in my mind
Each day I feel like I'm falling behind
Living in shadows, still getting burned
When will I ever learn
(Chorus)
After all those secrets you let me believe
There's no rose petal air, there's just thorns when I breathe
How can you say that to me

Say That Again?

Hey...
Back up!

You are good to suggest,
I am in it for the ego.
That I need that massaged...
To gain a barrage of adulation.

Do you realize how long I've been doing this?
Getting angry looks with frowning lips.
Wishing to assist others with their gifts.
And this has not given me...
An expanded ego to lift.

Folks talk good game about unity.
And how others should support each other,
With their diversity.
But all I've been given is their indignities.
And how they believe...
Receiving such disrespect,
I'm finding it relieves...
The masochistic side of my personality.

Or this accomodates a deep self depravation...
Only when shown,
They then can appreciate!
For gossip purposes...
To spread to say they saw me grieve.

I do not feed on self loathing.

Hey...
Back up!

You are good to suggest,
I am in it for the ego.
That I need that massaged...
To gain a barrage of adulation.

Who in their right mind,
Would put up with such aggravation?
Unless, of course...
They feed on remorse!

'Say that again? '

Unless, of course...
They feed on remorse!

'No...
That part about being in your right mind!
Maybe that is what you should have examined!
Why continue to beat your head against the wall...
If you know no one cares you inflict your own pain!
Have you attempted another approach,
So the folks wont believe you're insane?
Or leave them alone and maintain your peaceful gains? '

What are you saying?

'I have never seen a camel,
Complain of being dehydrated.
Or wishing to have a thirst quenched! '

That makes no sense.

'My point,
Exactly! '

Did I Say That?

So this is what it feels like
To be the one left behind
To give it all you've got, then find
You've already changed your mind
And this is what it sounds like
Crying on the bed that we both made
Waiting for a sign that you just can't give me
Any kind of sign
I don't want to be here wide-awake
Clinging to a love that can't be saved
Hanging off the edge of every word
That you say
And so I asked myself, "Do I love you so much
That I'm willing to let you go?"
At the tip of my tongue the answer was "yes"
But, at the botoom of my heart I'm wondering...
Did I say that?
Did I say that?
Sometimes you know I over react
And what I say is not a matter of fact
And I wish that I could take it all back
And you know I'd drag myself through fire at your side
And you know the gates of Heaven are surely open wide
And I need some sympathy here
And I need someone to call my own
I'm standing in the the light of my mistakes
And begging you, "come home."
And I know you need some time to run and hide
But the truth is hard to swallow when you're choking on your pride
And so I asked myself, "Do I love you so much
That I'm willing to let you go?"
At the tip of my tongue the answer was "yes"
But, at the botoom of my heart I'm wondering...
Did I say that?
Did I say that?
Sometimes you know I over react
And what I say is not a matter of fact
And I wish that I could take it all back
But I said that
And I wish that I could take it all back
And I need some sympathy here
And I want a love to call my own
I want to take you in the back seat now
And slowly drive you home
And I know you need some time to run and hide
But the truth is hard to swallow when you're choking on your pride
I don't want to be this wide-awake Fighting for a love that I can't save
And hanging off the edge of every word you say
Knowing that it might make me cry
I don't want to be this complicating
You can drag it out but I'll be waiting
I stumbled on "I love you" tonight
But it sounded like goodbye
Did I say that?
Did I say that?
Did I tell you that I loved you cause it
Would have been a matter of fact?
Did I say that?
This time I'm not letting go
Did I say that?
This time I'll have and I'll hold
Did I tell you that I loved you cause it
Would have been a matter of fact?
Did I say that?
This time I'm walking through fire
Did I say that?
This time I'll feed my desire
Did I say that?
This time I'll stand by your side
Did I say that?
This time I will be your pride
Did I say that?
This time I'm not letting go
Did I say that?
This time I'll have and I'll hold
Did I say that?
This time I'm walking through fire
Did I say that?
And I wish that I could take it all back
So this is what it feel like
To be the one left behind
To give it all you've got then find
That you've already changed your mind

Emily Dickinson

They say that 'time assuages,

They say that 'time assuages,'--
Time never did assuage;
An actual suffering strengthens,
As sinews do, with age.

Time is a test of trouble,
But not a remedy.
If such it prove, it prove too
There was no malady.

Betcha Say That

Betcha say that
Betcha say that
To all the girls

You say you'll be my knight in shining armour
We'll run away and live a life of glamour
You say for me you'll be true blue

You say you want me everywhere beside you
and that you just cannot live without me

Stanzas For Music: They Say That Hope Is Happiness

They say that Hope is happiness;
But genuine Love must prize the past,
And Memory wakes the thoughts that bless:
They rose the first--they set the last;

And all that Memory loves the most
Was once our only Hope to be,
And all that Hope adored and lost
Hath melted into Memory.

Alas it is delusion all:
The future cheats us from afar,
Nor can we be what we recall,
Nor dare we think on what we are.

I Wouldn't Say That Too Loudly

When I ask you how you are doing,
Can you respond by telling me 'how' you are?
Instead of discussing what you've written,
All the time?

'Do I say anything at all...
When you show me picture after picture,
Of your children...
Growing from day to day? '

That is not the same thing?

'Oh?
I wouldn't say that too loudly
You've already hurt 'my' feelings!
I'm glad I decided to leave my 'kids' at home.'

They say that Hope is happiness—
But genuine Love must prize the past;
And mem'ry wakes the thoughts that bless
They rose the first—they set the last.
And all that mem'ry loves the most
Was once our only hope to be:
And all that hope adored and lost
Hath melted into memory.

Alas! it is delusion all—
The future cheats us from afar,
Nor can we be what we recall,
Nor dare we think on what we are.

I Guess You Can Say That I Am Hungry

I GUESS now that i have packed my bags
finally deciding to take this break away from you
for some other place that you need not know
for someone that may show
the care that i need
the love that i badly wish for
I GUESS you can say that i am hungry not for bread
or pasta or steak or
sex,

I AM HUNGRY FOR SOMETHING else
for words for some healthy conversations
for laughter
for silly talks we use to indulge before
for some lighter things,
for anything goes,

i need to loaf i need to float i have been anchored that long
i sense there is something wrong

You Can Say That

If you can find a place of mental comfort.
And keep it safe,
Without it becoming tainted!
You have wealth in your possession.

Something priceless...
Hard to find.

Even those who have stolen goldmines,
Can not say that!
Those who have made claims of what they own,
Spend many sleepless nights...
Wishing to have at least one without medication,
Can't say that!
If you can find a place of mental comfort.
And keep it safe,
Without it becoming tainted!
You can take that wherever you choose.
And be happy!
You can say that!
And know it is true.
And not have a dime in your pocket!

William Shakespeare

Sonnet 109: O, never say that I was false of heart

O, never say that I was false of heart,
Though absence seemed my flame to qualify.
As easy might I from my self depart
As from my soul which in thy breast doth lie.
That is my home of love; if I have ranged,
Like him that travels I return again,
Just to the time, not with the time exchanged,
So that myself bring water for my stain.
Never believe though in my nature reigned
All frailties that besiege all kinds of blood,
That it could so preposterously be stained
To leave for nothing all thy sum of good;
For nothing this wide universe I call
Save thou, my rose, in it thou art my all.

They say that shadows of deceased ghosts

They say that shadows of deceased ghosts
Do haunt the houses and the graves about,
Of such whose life's lamp went untimely out,
Delighting still in their forsaken hosts:
So, in the place where cruel Love doth shoot
The fatal shaft that slew my love's delight,
I stalk, and walk, and wander day and night,
Even like a ghost with unperceived foot.
But those light ghosts are happier far than I,
For, at their pleasure, they can come and go
Unto the place that hides their treasure so,
And see the name with their fantastic eye:
Where I, alas, dare not approach the cruel
Proud moment that doth enclose my jewel.

Love Sonnet 05: If I May Say, That Crimson Rose You Wear

If I may say, that crimson rose you wear,
Looks red, but tainted, not as red so pure,
Its tints of violet, a purplish smear,
Bespeaks not of your ways, true and demure,
I hate to think what damasked signifies,
Though rose so patterned and motley is rare,
But rose for you, must know no butterflies,
Uncrossed and not grafted, of hybrids, bare;
Will fitting rose be one, not there at all?
If it will just turn out a floral waste?
And might therein, a fruiting bloom install,
Whereby, what is seen gratifies the taste?
.....Yet, that rose, I would not the least despise,
.....It rivals not the sparkle of your eyes.

Dont Say That You Love Me

Im gonna tell you right up front
So you will understand
I aint gonna waste your time
cause I might not be your man
We wont go makin promises
cause you know it just aint right
A promise is a promise, girl
And tonight is just tonight
Tonight is just tonight
Chorus:
Dont say that you love me
If it dont feel right
Dont say that you love me
Just hold me tonight
There aint no need for broken hearts
I know in time they mend
Any fool can fall in love
Its so easy to pretend
Dont tell me Im the only one
If it doesnt mean a thing
Lets take tonight for what its worth
And see what tomorrow brings
And see what tomorrow brings
Chorus (to fade)

She Used To Say That To Me

Let's take a rest
Your kisses take my breath
You are the best
It's never been like this
She used to say that to me
Over and over so sweet
She'll tell you she'll never leave
She used to say that to me
It thrills you so
When she whispers soft and low
Please hold me tight
I need your love tonight?
I'm yours,? she sighs
And she means it at the time
But someday she'll go
If you're wonderin' how I know
She used to say that to me
Over and over so sweet
She'll tell you she'll never leave
She used to say that
She used to say that to me
Over and over so sweet
She'll tell you she'll never leave
She used to say that to me
She used to say that to me

Love Sonnet 179 When sages say that dusk of skies so red,

When sages say that dusk of skies so red,
Predicts a pleasant, sunny day after,
Did it mean, no rain, none of tears to shed,
Even when hearts that grieve and bleed suffer?
And strange how color red figures in gloom:
Red is rose that hides stinging wasps or thorns,
Then red lips brought my sanity to doom,
Now, red skies assure not those glossy morns;
It was red that my lady wore to dance,
Red was wine that made us forget the time,
Red was her face, when we gave love to chance,
Red was the light when not stopping is crime;
.......But then, sages are deemed right all along,
.......My umbrage is for times they could be wrong.
