A Different Place...
I wish we had met 20 years ago...A different place, a different timewhen I actually had a chance for you to be mine...
Although we cannot changewhat brought us together today,I don't know why it is so hardfor me to think about walking away...
From you and from us... despite the obstacles that stand in the wayof our chance to become something more than just yesterday -
I believe in love at first siteas silly as it sounds...I never actually realized that that until you came around...
With your unmistakable smile,quick wit and flatterylike the devilish look in your eyeswhenever you see me...
I know it's real and I know I'm not alonein feeling so stronglythat you'll never be gone...
Entirely from my lifeno matter what it takesfor you and me to be togetherI think we'll always make...
Up a reason to see each other,an excuse to escape tobe together anywhereany time - we will do
What we feel we need to be with one anotherRegardless of how shortour time is together...
The quality in momentsbetween you and meis something most peopleonly dream they will see...
Once in this lifetime...No matter how latewhen love like ours arrivesIt has to be FATE...
I thought I had livedbefore I met youbut the truth is I honestly had no clue...
About what love means or how it's supposed to be...I settled for less, for menwho were not good to me.
I thank God for youeven if we have to secretly datefor another 20 years...I know it will be worth the wait...

Antidotes for an Alibi
Amy King's first full-length collection, Antidotes for an Alibi, insists that we examine the deceptive clarity of our actions and the goals that motivate us. How does one actually get from "A" to "B"-and is there ever really a "B"? What color is the white space between "A" and "B"? Upon closer inspection, surface realities reveal themselves to be porous and fragile, layered with textures and grains that lead the eye on varying pathways. So what are we to do in a world of newspaper narratives that instruct us toward tidy endings, murmuring that such endings are possible and even inevitable?
Let Your Feelings Be Your Guide
The light of all eternity shines with me now / My feelings light up my life / How I find my way is determined by them / They illumine my path and show me who I am
Beautiful Dreamer, Stephen Foster, Americas First Folk Song Writer
"Beautiful Dreamer" was written by Stephen Foster just before his death in 1864 at age 37. The song became one of his most famous and most popular. However, as with the approximately 200 other songs that Foster wrote during his brief lifetime, he did not receive the recognition or financial reward that he deserved.

Expressing an Emotion - The Art of Writing Poetry
Writing poetry is an art, a way of expression, finding meaning in few words. A melody of passion flowing out onto the pages, words that flow into each other and yet express the inner most thoughts and feelings of those who read the words. Writing poetry is a gift, a wonderful gift, being able to illuminate words so that they form a picture, express a feeling and share a thought in so few words. Unlike telling a story or writing a novel that explains every intricate detail a poem leaves you to draw your own conclusion. Writing poetry can be a healing process, putting down on paper all the emotions locked up inside ones head, a way of remembering and a way of re-living. Poetry has many forms from free verse to sonnet but all poems tell a story, a story of words, words wrapped around each other in such away that they flow together, locked in meaning. The poem below is titled "Playing" and every time I read this poem I cannot help but smile, as too will any mother reading this poem. See if you smile.
Ed Gallagher Dec. 11, 1907 - Sept. 5, 2004
As I picked up some of the polished gemstones in the rock store I began to think about what the stones looked like before they were polished. The store had several rocks on display showing the before and after and I realized that unless you knew what you were looking for, you could easily pass by a valuable gemstone. I also thought about how many times we pass by someone because they look "ordinary" and what we might be missing because we don't get to know their "inner person". Thus this poem.
I am not the one I was before yesterday.
