Silenced Love Intrusion

Silenced Love Intrusion
by JeromeProphet

Our love is an illusion
My fault
My pained confusion

One heart that beats
Not two
A broken heart so blue

Your silence an intrusion
Upon my self delusion
It speaks as loud as thunder
Pushing my soul dark under

And whom is there to blame
Can anyone be shamed
For what they fail to do
For not feeling 'I love you'

For it's my thoughts and feelings
That has sent my life reeling
And not your heart so bare
of love for me or care

So what should I now do
Make die this love for you
Or let it wither in silence
buried in unsung violence

And what of memories we made
The future plans we laid
Of soft kisses on golden days
Of the children we would raise

Are those thoughts now unmade
Or living in another way
In some distant place and time
A place we still could find

I'm hoping you hear it too
The song that led me to you
It's sung each and every day
God blessed in every way

And if ever you understand
We'll reach that promised land
And join our souls with love
Eternal, infinite, and one.

Peregrine Falcon Graces Downtown Springfield Illinois

Peregrine Falcon Dives Faster Than 180 MPH

One perk of working in downtown Springfield, Illinois is the presence of a Peregrine Falcon.  Several weeks ago I walked within about ten meters (30 feet) of a Peregrine.  I snapped a few photos with my cellphone camera, but the quality was so poor that I won't post them here.

Over the last month, or more, I've seen the Peregrine eating (some captured prey?) in one of our company's parking lots.  Yesterday the Falcon flew just feet above my SUV while I was driving down Jefferson street at lunch time - to the delight of me, and my friend Greeneyes.
What an incredible bird of prey.  Just to see this beautiful bird stretch its wings and soar is such a privilege.  Not many decades ago this incredible bird was listed on the endangered species list, but has made a remarkable recovery due to the banning of the pesticide DDT.

My Crazy Evil Twisted Loser Love

My Crazy Evil Twisted Loser Love
by jeromeprophet

I've learned not to expect anything from you
This way when I get nothing at all
Or worse yet - rejection, and even abuse
I am not as hurt, or as confused
And when you give me something at all
Your hand
Your hug
Your kiss
Your smile
Your time
Your kindness
Your thoughts
Your love
Your dreams
Your hopes
Your trust
Your life

No matter how fleeting
No matter what price I must pay
I am happily surprised
