Holiday Fever 103 Views 11/06/07
Ok, I've got the holiday fever now. I found the perfect gown to wear for my company Christmas party. It's just beautiful and I'm so excited. Now the only thing I need is a date. I've gone stag the past 2 years and I will again this year if I must but I keep hoping and praying to find someone nice and fun to go with...even if we just go as friends. Anyway, I'm going to VA to visit family over the Thanksgiving holiday and I have almost 2 weeks off at Christmas. I don't know what I'll do with myself. Honestly I'm a bit burned-out at work and I welcome the time off. Maybe I can get my book finished-up (wishful thinking). I marked a few Christmas parades and craft shows on my calendar so I know I'll have fun. (yes I'm a dork! lol) So what do you guys and girls have planned so far? Melissa

Another One Bites the Dust 214 Views 10/27/07
Ok, so I just talked to a guy online just now (on another site...which is free) and he seemed really cool. But in the end all we wanted was to have phone s*x (or video s*x in his case...he had a webcam...I don't). Why couldn't he just say he was looking for some fun up front? I should've seen it coming but I was stupid and it ended badly for us both (but I guess it could've been worse). I'm dumbfounded at the moment. I feel like I've done something wrong but I know I didn't. Is guilt a normal reaction? I've never had this problem before so I'm not sure what to think. Any thoughts or advice? I know all men aren't like that but this one floored me. What the hell just happened? lol I guess I have to laugh at myself though....I mean I'm just flabbergasted.

The Mists 29 Views 10/21/07
Gray mist hangs like a shroud Covering the earth one early morn Closing out all sunlight Silencing the animals Making it impossible to see It moves along with a will of its own Enveloping life and observing Sighing on the gentle breeze A cocoon where peace and quiet reign Time suspended for but a moment It ebbs and flows like the sea Loving an old lost friend A glimpse of life beyond the veil Then it's gone and the world stops again Suspended in the mists (c) 2007.

Untitled - Written 10/12/07 86 Views 10/12/07
How do you break out of the box? Break down the walls, turn them to dust And step outside to a new adventure How do you leave your things behind? Things that define who you are Who you've been and who you may become How do you face the unknown? Where fear threatens to overtake you Where the familiar is long past Where love is just an elusive shadow How do you continue the path of life? When your tracks have been erased The road has been repaved And it no longer appears on the map Do you stay in your box where it's safe? Or do you break out and start a new journey? Do not let life pass you by without ever really living... Break out of the box! (c) 2007. Melissa Parker. All rights reserved.

The Dream.....Interesting! lol 60 Views 10/10/07
Stacey...your picture of the path through the forest partially inspired this poem. lol The other part is wishful thinking at the moment. Any takers? ;) Here I am in the darkening woods Dreaming of my knight A gentle breeze stirs the air Only the stars shine their light I walk along a narrow path Meandering through the trees Humming like a happy child And then I hurt my knee I hear his gentle footsteps Does he search for me? Then I see his shadow Down on bended knee He whispers questions I do not understand He leans ever closer And takes my hand I feel his warm breath Caressing my cheek The brush of his lips Lifting me off my feet And just when I think I've finally reached heaven I awake on the ground And stare up at the heavens I still think of Him And see him in dreams His warm soft kiss And the hope He brings (c) 2007.

The Precipice 63 Views 10/05/07
I stand on a great precipice Looking far beyond Swaying in the violent breeze Stumbling towards the edge I hear the sea far below Storm clouds rumbling above Lightning splits the air Crashing violently I stand alone on the edge Stumbling to my knees The heavens open far and wide Unleashing its great fury I cry out your name God please hear my prayer Thunder rolling in every direction Snarling dramatically I feel the storm begin to calm As sudden as it started The sun breaks through the clouds Rays of light dance gleefully I stand on a great precipice Looking far beyond Standing in awe of beauty A bright future ahead

Whew! This is a doozy 281 Views 10/04/07
Sometimes I do things I regret It's definitely self-destructive Sometimes I say things in anger My sensor was on vacation Sometimes I do stupid things What the hell was I thinking? Sometimes I say stupid things It's just my defense mode Sometimes I say how I feel Thinking it's the truth Sometimes I say nothing at all Silence with a thousand words Sometimes I say what I think Whether it makes sense or not Sometimes I don't think at all Savoring my peace of mind Sometimes I feel my heart breaking How do I piece it together? Sometimes I feel the weight of the world Flashes in my thoughts and dreams Sometimes I feel invisible Despite my desperate pleas Sometimes I feel invincible But no one truly is Sometimes I tell great jokes Laughing rather annoyingly Sometimes I tell sad stories Hoping it's not my reality Sometimes I think too much Forever analyzing myself Sometimes I feel too much My heart always on display Sometimes I'm an open book Open for all to see Here I am...waiting No pretenses...just me Sometimes...

Observer 79 Views 10/07/07
I didn't write this poem (a friend did) but I like it so much that I want to share it with you. What do you think? Dark morning prophesying rain. Everything is still, like a quiet casket at graveside, during prayer. Forest green painted against an unknown color. Not quite gray, not quite brown. I cannot describe the tree bark in this light. The color is more like a feeling, ominous, eerie, All Hallow's Eve before midnight. Large black spider has stretched its web from dawn to dusk. Intricate moonlight gets caught like prey, but luminous and free, escapes the sting. There is no fear here, just the wonder of autumn still infatuated with its Indian summer maiden; an observer penning it in gossamer shadows.

This one is for you Jan! Thanks for being a good friend. Sorry this joke is in caps but it's the way it came. A HUSBAND IS AT HOME WATCHING A FOOTBALL GAME WHEN HIS WIFE INTERRUPTS, HONEY, COULD YOU FIX THE LIGHT IN THE HALLWAY? IT'S BEEN FLICKERING FOR WEEKS NOW. HE LOOKS AT HER AND SAYS ANGRILY, FIX THE LIGHTS NOW? DOES IT LOOK LIKE I HAVE GE WRITTEN ON MY FOREHEAD? I DON'T THINK SO. FINE, THEN THE WIFE ASKS, WELL THEN, COULD YOU FIX THE FRIDGE DOOR? IT WON'T CLOSE RIGHT TO WHICH HE REPLIED, FIX THE FRIDGE DOOR? DOES IT LOOK LIKE I HAVE WESTINGHOUSE WRITTEN ON MY FOREHEAD? I DON'T THINK SO FINE, SHE SAYS THEN YOU COULD AT LEAST FIX THE STEPS TO THE FRONT DOOR? THEY ARE ABOUT TO BREAK I'M NOT A CARPENTER AND I DON'T WANT TO FIX STEPS HE SAYS, DOES IT LOOK LIKE I HAVE ACE HARDWARE WRITTEN ON MY FOREHEAD? I DON'T THINK SO I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU. I'M GOING TO THE BAR!!!! SO HE GOES TO THE BAR AND DRINKS FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS............................... HE STARTS TO FEEL GUILTY ABOUT HOW HE TREATED HIS WIFE, AND DECIDES TO GO HOME AS HE WALKS INTO THE HOUSE HE NOTICES THAT THE STEPS ARE ALREADY FIXED. AS HE ENTERS THE HOUSE , HE SEES THE HALL LIGHT IS WORKING AS HE GOES TO GET A BEER, HE NOTICES THE FRIDGE DOOR IS FIXED. HONEY, HE ASKS, HOW'D ALL THIS GET FIXED? SHE SAID, WELL, WHEN YOU LEFT I SAT OUTSIDE AND CRIED. JUST THEN A NICE YOUNG MAN ASKED ME WHAT WAS WRONG, AND I TOLD HIM. HE OFFERED TO DO ALL THE REPAIRS, AND ALL I HAD TO DO WAS EITHER GO TO BED WITH HIM OR BAKE A CAKE. HE SAID, SO WHAT KIND OF CAKE DID YOU BAKE? SHE REPLIED, HELLOOOOO.. DO YOU SEE BETTY CROCKER WRITTEN ON MY FOREHEAD? I DON'T THINK SO!

Contemplating Poetry 43 Views 09/20/07
This has been a hard week for me at work. My personal life (friendships) has exploded (figuratively)...meaning I'm so busy I don't know whether I'm coming or going. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about my newfound socializing schedule....it's just that everything is happening all at once. I'm going in 5000 different directions all at once (physically and emotionally). I've got my writing going in a great direction thanks to Nat. I'm reasonably happy but troubled all at the same time. I had a nightmare last night that I haven't had in years and its gotten me all shaken up again. What does it mean? Anyway, I just needed to vent some of my frustrations for a minute. I hope you like the poem. Song From Within I hear that familiar melody The song that seems to emanate from within, It seems so familiar yet so strange Does my heart really sing that tune? It calls to me like an old lost friend And folds me in its overwhelming warmth, I hear the chords in my thoughts and dreams It touches the very center of my soul, I long to dance and play and love It sets me free from even the deepest sorrow, It calls to me with its ever-changing chords With highs and lows and a sound that's unreal, Could something so beautiful really come from me? Deep feelings rising and falling with each beautiful note, Words cannot express what my song sings Beauty, love, joy, sadness. . .Just aren't enough! I dream of finding a song that echoes mine Would I dream that it were possible, Everyone sings his or her own unique song In hopes of finding that one special echo. ?2005 Melissa Parker.

Life 35 Views 09/17/07
Life I drift along the path of life Winding my way through twists and turns, The warmth of the sun surrounding me I must be careful as not to burn, I bask in the sun's great glory And then the ride begins again, Going faster and faster But there is no end, And then the warmth turns to bitter cold As death once again shows its ugly face, I continue forward though I cannot go on My heart breaking with each new day, And then the sun comes again to play I long to bloom in its glorious rays, Life seems too good to take for granted I count my blessings night and day, The journey through life is long and treacherous But only a few learn the lessons that surround us, Will this wonderful warmth last very long? We know not what we have until it is gone! ?2006 Melissa Parker. All rights reserved.

Mary 34 Views 09/11/07
Mary I hold you dear Inside my heart, So sweet and small And bold at heart, You taught me love You showed me pain, I think of you You left too soon, I love you now for eternity I pray one day you'll come back for me, Once life seemed so dull and grim I'm grateful for the short time we had, I now know love and life I promise to live a happy life, I owe this all to you Mary, my sweet angel (c) 2001.

The Lesson 52 Views 09/09/07
This one's for you Nat since you inspired me. Man, I've written more poems in the last month than I have all year. lol The Lesson Life is ever changing Which way should I go? Always rearranging Thinking I don't know The winds of change are coming I'd better be prepared The door solemnly swinging Slamming without a care The winds blow bitter cold The windows start to shudder I hear that whistling wind My heart begins to flutter Glass begins to flex and bow I fear the damage done Shards fly with deadly speed I fear my life is done And then the wind begins to slow The clouds begin to part The sun comes out in all its glory I feel it warm my heart I stand in front of the window Seeing the empty shell I lift the frame up quickly Feeling the warm summer breeze One more lesson has come to pass In this hell called life Don't be discouraged by slamming doors Just go and open a window (c) 2007 Melissa Parker.

Bump in the Road 60 Views 09/08/07
Ok, I just hit bump in the road. No matter how much I tried to prepare myself (because deep down I could see the writing on the wall...my intuition never fails me)...it still hurts. I harbor no bad feelings and I wish them well. It just wasn't meant to be for me. I'd like to remain friends but I don't know if I can...at least not yet. Actually, I'm sure it'll be fine because I am who I am. I'll get over it and things will be fine. It seems a shame to throw away a good friend just because it didn't work out. Oh well, life goes on as they say and here's one for the road Friends Friends are very special Few and far between Waves drifting in and out Drifting unknowingly I found a kindred spirit Is it meant to be? Never really knowing him Far across the sea Life goes on around us Flowing incessantly Miles away and growing Can he hear my plea? A heart of molten gold Courage like a lion Sweet as warm fresh honey Thoughtful as the day is long Friends are very special Few and far between Never lose who you are And please don?t forget me (c) 2007 Melissa Parker.

Prayer, Faith, Hope & Love I pray for those who are lost I pray for those in pain, I pray for God to heal my broken family I pray for God to heal my broken heart, Faith is all I have in this world Faith that my Father will take care of me, Faith that what doesn't kill me will make me stronger Faith that my Father will bring me home someday, Hope that I will live a happy and full life Hope that I do not fail my Father, Love all things without prejudice or hatred Love those who make love seem impossible, You must love yourself before you can truly love others And above all, love thy Father for he will provide for all your needs.

The Pastor's Donkey 78 Views 09/06/07
The Pastor's As* The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and it won again. The local paper read: PASTOR'S AS* OUT FRONT. The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race. The next day, the local paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S AS*. This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST AS* IN TOWN. The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10. The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS AS* FOR $10. This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER AS* IS WILD AND FREE. The bishop was buried the next day. The moral of the story is . . . being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery . . even shorten your life. So be yourself and enjoy life. Stop worrying about everyone else's as* and you'll be a lot happier and live longer! Have a nice day!

Peace 22 Views 09/05/07
Peace I stand alone on the seashore Wondering what I could do more, Waves rush in as birds take flight My heart soars free on this bright night, Light dances from wave to wave Playing a silent symphony, My hair stirs in the gentle breeze How long will I feel at peace? I feel the tranquility of this night Peace flows through me on this very night, My heart grows softer day to day My soul fears not the end of the day, If only peace would live forever The world could love and come together.
