Putting someone's needs before your own
Sharing your thoughts, never feeling alone
A tenderness so sweet
That sweeps you off your feet
A joined journey into the unknown.
It's unbridled passion that does consume
When their scent becomes your perfume
Smiles lit from within
Life finally can begin
Two peas in a pod that grow full bloom
Being your real self with no pretense
Filled with ardor, the joy so immense
It's butterflies galore
Can't wait for what's in store
Heart open wide, no longer on defence.
They drank too much at a watering hole
Three gals lost their wits, went out of control
Men ogled and flirted
Desires so perverted
The girls checked out before meeting each troll
But three liters of wine quickly passed through
So their journey home went a bit askew
Their kidneys had been filled
An urgency instilled
They needed release, but there was no loo
As they coasted up the seaside highway
All three were suffering in much dismay
They had to park the car
Alongside a “wet bar”
On a rock jetty the trio did stray
They complained how easy it was for men
Jan wished she was a rooster, not a hen
With their backs to the sea
Pants down, they took a pee
Before they got home, they did it again

I booked a vacation with a friend
We found a beach haven – sun and sand
The journey by train cost a song
We slept as the miles went along
Woke up at the end in no man’s land.

a savory swig energizes bones
one swallow electrifies tasting cones
an instant caffeine rush
causes blah cheeks to pink blush
pure Pepsi creates haunting moans.
a tingling sensation provides power
charging battery for 24 hours
but "diet" won't do
the "hard stuff's" my brew
Pepsi fragrance as potent as flowers.
one day when Life's journey is done
and "the other side's" calling for fun
no Coke, Dew, or "7"
as I step into Heaven
hoping Pepsi is their "Number One".

On my bike, fifteen gears by derailleur
I set off on my trip round Australia
But the weather was hot
Blisters grew on my bot
So the journey became quite a failure
The streets of Mumbai have a different motif,
That will fill your head with complete disbelief
The rules that you know,
Will all be too slow,
As you flutter around like a leaf.
The torment of traffic starts when you go,
Cuz whatever you do you just cannot know.
They zim and zam,
And thank you ma’m,
Your wits about you, you’ll just have to show.
Lane markers if any are completely a scam,
In the space you may fit with a slight bam-bam.
On the left and the right,
It will seem quite a sight,
But it will keep you out of a jam
The motto of course is “Might has Right”
Doesn’t matter if you’re dumb or if yer bright.
Get out of my way,
Is to survive today,
And heavens don’t stop for a light.
Approaching a turn on the left you’ll stay,
But it’s likely to cause your head to sway.
Horns will sound,
But don’t look around,
Or in the middle you’ll be of the fray.
Tuk-tuks by the thousands are chief,
As they ply the streets like a thief.
On a prayer and a song,
You’ll drive real strong,
And a safe journey you’ll have with relief!
So what single thing makes our writes so charming
If I knew, I'd be driving a Ferrari instead of this jalopy I'm parking
It's intangible they say
Choosing words to convey
Every day a new journey through life we're embarking
There once was a boy we called chase-face
he dreamed of reaching outer space.
With this dream in his heart
our family will part
and this boy we never could replace.
We all dreaded that day late in June
when we knew he would fly to the moon.
So a party we had
even though we were sad
as the countdown was scheduled for noon.
Chase couldn't get rid of the grin
or the drool that was right on his chin.
He was laughing so loud
while we stood watching proud.
His journey would finally begin.
The trip was a total success.
Of course, we expected no less.
We've done all we can.
He now is a man
and all that he sees he will bless
We promised to be together for whole life
Days should be dazzling on your glow
Nights could sparkle as love would flow.
We could be ideal husband and wife,
But destiny divided us with cruel knife.
I thought tears would run ceaseless
I could never forget my sweet heart.
I was shattered as we got apart.
Time passed, memory faded merciless.
I forgot my peerless princess.
On journey of life we again chanced to meet
Destiny brought us face to face
She appeared with wonderful grace.
Oblivion released hidden tears to greet
my beloved,alive in my heart beat.

Going to the mailbox with Ambien dreams
A sleep walking journey or so it seems
Neighbor took only one glance
Laughed, "You're not wearing no pants"
Awakened by my wife's horrid screams
Soon be approaching the end of the line
Been a fabulous ride, this journey of mine
Too short I must say
Still wanna play
But the choice ain't mine, in this grand old design
