Hand - Greg Cameron

Hand

The evening has not been all
it might have been disappointment hangs in the air
the moment itself seems to yawn
I'm out of tricks
but still we play cards
you smile, knowing you have an unbeatable hand
I bluff, knowing full well
you won't buy it
but I am, as always, killing Time
-but Time won't die
the table awaits no supper
I pull up another card
but it's no winner
the shadows are watching
the ceiling looks down on our hands
I wish I could throw away the cards
-a Joker flying straight in your face-
I'd cry,"it's not a game!"
you smile and hold your cards
close to your chest
the evening is not getting younger
but it looks like we'll be here
a long, long Time,
me playing for Time
you playing with Time
holding and smiling
as if to say,
"I've got you right where I want you. We're going nowhere.
Let's go there together
and we'll find out who the real winner is...."
the room's emptiness spreads all about
casting a blanket on all and
catching no one's
breath....

Enough - Jessica Parker

Enough

Feel this moment,
breathe it in,
life is just about to begin,
I cannot hear a thing,
my ears, all they do is ring.
I can’t say I like you much,
though I wish it could be as such.
When you hold me,
do you see the way I flinch,
It’s subtle and simple, not even an inch.
You tear me down,
you push me around,
you’re ripping my soul,
leaving a big black hole.
My heart is far gone,
I pour it out into a song,
nothing I’ve done,
deserves to have no one,
no love or affection,
I shouldn’t let you in,
stop breaking my heart,
you’ve done this from the start,
it’s like my wrist is in a handcuff,
I think I’ve had enough.

If only we stood back - By Katie

If only we stood back

Everything is beautiful
Everything in life
Yet sometimes it seems
The lives we lead
Mask beauty that's so rife

The birds, the bees
The sound of the trees
Nature so pure and tender
Ever so green
Yet covered by our lives

If only we stood back
If not for a moment
Forgot where life might lead
And remembered "what will be will be"

If only we stood back

PRAYER - By Lanny Wafer

PRAYER

Clearer venture lies ahead
Gone is doubt fear and dread
Alone brave unlike the past
Self preservation now at last
Protected by Father heaven above
Bathed in goodness lost in love
Still searching for one true love
Send the angel peace like a dove
