Scream and shout
let emotion out
release resentment

This kiss
is bliss
passion errupts from my soul

Tangerine seas and marsh mellow trees
candy mountains and chocolate fountains
polka dot flowers that dance in the breeze

This garden is my solitude
a magical, mystical place, 
where spiders spin webs of lace 
and butterflies flutter with grace. 

Crystal streams shimmer like diamonds 
and trees are laden with fruit 
peacocks fan their tails with pride 
so glorious, so dignified. 

There's no other place I'd rather be 
than here under shade of this willow tree 
such peace, such joy, tranquility, 
completely washes over me.

Memories of the past fuse into the future 
the here and now a void 
infused by loves delusion. 

Past is past yet memories invade my heart and soul 
how can I forget you 
when your love makes me feel whole. 

Perhaps I'm fantasising, I'm living in a dream, 
but sometimes dreams come true 
and I want to live my life with you.

I'm crying in the rain 
releasing my sorrow and pain 
like waterfalls the droplets flow 
glistening like diamonds 
in sun's radiant glow. 

I'm hiding in the rain 
to disguise my heartache and shame 
I have only myself to blame 
thunder roars condemning my name 
lightening strikes I am cursed this night. 

I run for cover to escape my fate 
but it's much too late 
I have sinned 
I repent and beg for mercy 
I'm on my hands and knees. 

Soft whispers almost silent 
tell me not to fear 
I raise my head too slowly 
and angels disappear 
was it just a mirage or were they really here.

Tear drops like rain drops
run down my cheeks from my eyes
this pain I can't hide.

Swirling and twirling as though in a trance
a seductive glance gone in a flash 
teasing, arousing, holding me prisoner 
under your spell I completely surrendered.
 
The light in your eyes, the warmth of your smile, 
passion took hold as my soul merged with yours
my heart exposed for all to see
lost in a dance of romance.
 
Candle light flickered, sweet fragrance lingered, 
shooting stars streaked through the sky,
a gentle breeze carried the music
the music of your love and mine.

The Ice queen, frozen, 
devoid of all emotion 
locked her heart away. 

Unable to love
no sadness or happiness
she drowned in silence. 

Frozen for all time 
no feeling, no empathy 
none can thaw the ice. 

None can set her free 
from her pain and misery 
no one holds the key. 

A cold heart of stone 
none can break the barriers 
protecting her soul. 

Tired of been alone, 
in her state of solitude
yet blissfully numb.
