Breath of time
Breath of Time
A poem for Jessica Alba
A little inspiration I had, a little time I took, a little poem I wrote for you
A little desire I had, a little need I have, a little longing for you to see it
A little wish I had, a little anxiety I have, a little hope that you'll like it
Heavens hold no better soul
Eternity is no better goal
Assuming it without you
Vanity I see not in you
Evening comes and I talk to God
Not omitting your name symphonizes my words
Lamp of my days light of my ways
You are my fancy and delight always
Maybe I am a fool
Ageing and wearing down in a fantasy
Karma showed me a face so cruel
Elucidating its feeble mercy
Remission to it is not an option
I say because I am far from you.
But I am better off dreaming
Easing my essence from squirming
Leaving the tribulations of real living
Incarcerating the fate's roaring
Escaping karma's cunning
Vaccinating my heart from breaking
Eluding want from controlling
You are a majestic star shining bright
Over the highest hills I caught its sight
Under the deepest seas rests its light.
Afar we are worlds apart
Right or wrong it's nature's choice
Enrich me before I depart
Take me in your arms
Heal the sore in my soul
Enrich me before I depart
Grant me felicity
Reach out for me
Enrich me before I depart
Answer my crying voice
Talk through the universe
Enrich me before I depart
Show me the unknown
Talk to me I cry talk to me
No one else can be you
Only you are fitting
Talk to me I cry talk to me
Begging the Supreme I am
Entreating with all I have
Chasing smoke maybe
Acting stupid perhaps
Understand my tear Great One
Save me from these coals of passion
Each day I repeat those words.
Year after year I see you age
On and on goes the page
Unbearable it is to me.
Glory defined is you
Amazing in every angle
Virtuous in every aspect
Excellence defined is you
From childhood I fell deep
Overtly it's been to close beings
Revealed to you now, my best being
Manhood now and still in deep
To others you are just another pretty face
Overrated some say you are
Truth be told they may be right
However I would rather be wrong
Enveloping you in my heart feels good.
Failure is at my door
Odds are against me
Reason tells me to forget
Many times I contemplate
Line by line on my poems
Effusively at times I read aloud
Sorrowful tears in my soul
Sorry, at times I feel for myself.
Negativity I try to resist
Ongoing affection I can't restrain
Time will tell if it's all real.
Burn me not with this passion
Entangle me not in this emotion
Cast me not allow consideration
Allow a slice of me in your life
Urge my steps toward you
Send me an invitation
Enrapture my spirit
Yes I love you in that way
Only you take my breath away
Unfortunately you're far away.
Gift is my name
Around you I want to be
Very empty I am
Existing without you
Beatitude is but to the one with you
Reason is overthrown by your charms
Excellence is a word coined for you
An angel in Los Angeles you are
Tea to the nerves
Hue of nature's art
Time spent in pleasure
Oasis of passion
Dreams of pure sweetness
Stars in the sky
That's what you are.
Nugatory my words may be
Out of line to think I may be
Take a breath and think maybe
Breathe for a second
Enable the thoughts to come
Could I be the best of you?
And you the best of me
Underneath all who knows what is?
Surely I can't be that insane
Even after writing a thousand songs.
You might just be my purpose
Over and over again I meditate
Upon my life's purpose
Second after second
The answer is the same
Angle after angle
Day after day you stay
Each breath I take
Today tomorrow and always
Each heart beat I get
Rainy and sunny days
No season is different
All I breathe and beat is you
But I make room for wrong
Understanding I may be
Taking all into account
Because I am but a man
Erring is but human
Considering myself as such
Accepting that you may find me;
Yet my mind cannot settle
Of all women, you I'm most curious
Unquiet curiosity I have.
Deliver me from this want
Emancipate me please
Seemingly calm, in my soul I pant
Infringe all impediments please
Get me to end this hunt
Name me in your heart please
Eat away my stifling, build me a vent
Deliver me from this want.
Time is for the gods
Hearts are for persons
Elegance is for you.
Gracious and sweet
Every pretty word
Adjective or noun
To you I ascribe
Edacity floods me on your sight
Tantalizing in every way
Woman you're wonderful.
Obdurately fond of you
Madness may be creeping on me
As all I'm supposed to be is a simple fan.
Needless to say I must be your number one fan
Outclassed by many I may be
Foolish in a way, that too
Absurd, this poem may be
Lacking flavor, that too
Lady I leave only you to be the judge.
Mist of glee in our air
Average joy cannot compare
Side by side we adhere
Taking our unicorn mare
Escaping to a place so rare
Running my fingers in your hair
Dancing in the nude till we wear
Each moment passed, at each other we stare
Sensation pleasurable beyond fair
In my dreams you and I, are a pair
Gaily I get up every morning
Next to your picture I pray
Engrossed with thoughts of you
Running my days is not quite normal
Assuring myself that someday we'll meet
Measuring my chances is discouragement
Operating with hope abates my predicament
My spirit is too weak to let go
Even though at times I feel foolish
No sensation can substitute your aura
That is why it's hard to let go
Paint a picture of me in your heart
Allow my poem to sink in
Sight the prettiest thing your mind can
Set my poor soul free, pretend you care
Excuse that line if you do care.
Diamonds and pearls are overrated
I believe words last longer than jewels
So I write to you
As one who knows what lasts
Material things perish, words are of the spirit
Openly accept my words
Make an inscription in your heart
Enclose then to stay there forever
Nullify not a single one of them
Take time to consider me.
List me in the book of life
Only if my name follows hers
Take time to consider my words.
Worldly are my heart's interests
Heightened by her being worldly
Entertain my folly my Lord
Take time to consider my interests
Here in this poem is my passion defined
Each word is a vital element
Relying on others like chain links
I took time linking them
Take time to consider my work
I have a great taste for beauty
Sunsets are but commonplace
Perfect beauty is in her face
Alone she lights the world
Stars at night shy away
Summer skies hide their face
Elucidating her unrivaled beauty
Dear God You is a great sculptor indeed.
It is sad to live wishing
Napping my time away dreaming
Planning and constructing castles in the air
Living so far away from her
Eliminates a big slice of my joy
Angels are my witnesses
Supposing they know hearts
Unburden my soul Great One
Relieve me from this fruitless passion
Exercise Your compassion on me
Outspread Your loving kindness
Release me I'm a prisoner.
I know there are a vast variety of opinions
No two people think precisely alike
People may deem me mad
Aspiration leads my head
I care not of what's assumed
No one can break my pride
Believe me Jes you're my pride
Utterly composing my ego
Though we are not close
Teach me your ways
Help me know your likes
Engage me in your life
Make me be close.
Once upon a time I saw a girl
Mesmerizing with beauty she was
Efforts of reaching her were in vain
Nothing I tried could avail
Time flew she grew older
Interestingly I'm still interested
Hidden away from her face
A nonentity I feel in this world
Days are sore dreams are my nest
When will I reach the end of my quest?
Help me heavens I frequently say
Enable me to finding my way
Not a single response comes anyway
It is clear that I'm all alone
Fellowship with wish granters
Is a prerogative I do not have!
Reason taught me one thing
Sometimes being unreasonable is the best reason
That is why I write this poem
Looking at no other direction my resolve is firm
And I will write another one
I will until time does not allow
Deem me as you will
My heart will never change
You will always be my only page.
Even though I'm not a sage
You make me feel pretty prudent
Earnest and patient
Sublime with fervor
Naked with my pure intentions
Hear me Jes
Everything I do I wish it were for you
Reign over me I don't mind
Invest my ways with your will
Sit in my throne be my queen
Sweetheart! I wish to call you
Take my soul if you would
I authorize you to own me
Lust is far from my intention
Love is more or less that intention
With you I don't flatter I'm true
Impeccable and without deceit
Trust me you make me saintly
Hug a slice of my soul
My words are that slice of my soul
Embrace them with your soul.
Fear knows no triumph over me
Orderly an adjective describing me
Restless for I work hard at all times
Composed at all times
Enduring any ordeal
Offhand I never deal
Few men are like me
Every thought I have I have alone
Xty is my religion
It makes the world a lot less of a dungeon
Soothing my heart from sorrow
Time is the only element missing
Even the most faithful ends in the grave
Naivety is not in my nature
Cautious and inquisitive that's my feature
Excellence I leave for others to judge
Negligence is not my trait so is rage
Of course I have flaws
Opinionated at times
Narcissism used to be one of my laws
Experience taught me to change
Caring for others is my new page
Average good is a low range
Nice at all times is my pledge.
Pleasure is one of my pursuits
Occasionally I take it in a drink
Strawberries have the best savor
Sweetness is my weakness
I like beautiful things
Butterflies in flight
Lilies in their white
Yellow in a sunset's light
Kids are beautiful things too
Nice and cheery they are
Ornamenting this ugly world
Without them we're but animals in the wild.
Time and space fascinate me
Heaven and hell do too
Embrangled by the mystery of magic
Intrigued by the craft of science
Reveling in mathematics
Possibly I'll be a mad scientist someday.
Unexceptional vocationally I am
Reposeful about it I am
Peacefully hoping to be great someday
Open hearted and unprejudiced
Sensible and always focused
Easy going and never biased
I am slightly perfect.
Notable for my slow voice
Thinking is my main vice
Having most of my work noetic
I have a small universe in my mind.
Slow in action I'm not
Weak and worthless I'm not
Outrageous in conduct I'm not
Relying on anyone I'm not
Living for anyone? I may be
Days passing by will tell.
Next to me is but God
Often I talk to Him
Offering no sacrifice but honor
Next to my heart is but you
Each chance I get I talk of you
Chatting to God about you
Angels ought to envy you
Next to you I wonder who is
Time may not be enough to tell.
Amicable is a character I assumed
Laughing at no man even with a cause
Keeping my word even when it's costly
A little twinkle a little smile my heart is pure.
Black as ebony my skin is
Occluded from the world sometimes I feel
Understand me, not wrongly
Treasured is my ethnicity.
Memories turned to frivolity
And souls may cease
Time turned to frivolity
Thoughts may also cease
Elevated entities, gone
Sorrow and joy, gone
Opulence and penury, gone
Future and past, gone
Easter and Christmas, gone
X y and z dimensions, gone
In here there is supposed to be a "but"
Something one thing stays eternal
That thing is how you make me feel
Exclude me from your thoughts not
Neglect my words not
Criticize my art not
Extend your heart for room for me.
When I go to bed
I think of you
Thanking He for sculpturing you
Honoring His work of art
Time may tell if my words are true
Time may speak its own words.
A little twinkle a little thought my words are true
Like the gospel and steel they are.
Coins and notes are hard to find
Eggs and bacon not so hackneyed
Ruled by misfortune I feel naked
Tormented day and night, night and day
I at times feel like God abhors me.
Though I think I'm highly talented
Unleashing it to the world is hard
Demanding answers from He I dare not
Else He might make is worse.
One of a kind I wish to be
Understanding I wish to be
Really good I wish to be
I wish to be to you.
Snowy days come and go
Agreeable weather cycles on
Moisture less seasons do too
You are the only stable part of my air
Sunshine and the shade
Tea and the cake
East and west
Right and wrong
You are all there is in my longing.
Knock on your door, I wish I would
Nurse you in illness, I would
On your side in all matters
Walk in the park, I wish we would.
Novel I think this one is
One of my many poems may not be about you
None of my many songs is not about you.
Listen to what I have to say
You are a breed of your own
Breathing the essence of affection
You are a unique kind
Yes you are simply different.
Open your arms embrace my words
Unite our different worlds
Bring your warmth closer, wipe out my colds
Unction my heart heal my wounds
Take a step toward me.
Emotions I touch
A blessing or a curse
Concede to my call.
Heart felt heart held.
Troubled hearts I heal
Innocent passion I peal
My words are like lovers
Eloping to limitless passion
I with to unleash
The passion in whomever I wish
Heart felt heart held.
I wish to unleash your passion
Not many men may wish another way
Killing us softly you're in a way
An angel in Hollywood
Beautiful as a princess's story
Oil is no smoother than your skin
Unlimitedly thrilling on the silver screen
The apple of both my eyes
I think you're very special
The strawberry of my tongue
I think you're a rare treasure
Forever in my thoughts
Ebullient is how you make me feel
Effusive in every way a passion can be
Love I cannot claim, but care I can
Love I cannot comprehend, but like I can
Incisively struck by this like I am
Kindling what may just be silly infatuation
Encumber me not from the truth
I am trying to make my way
Waiting for the light to shine
As a night watchman I never play
Seeking a way to stop the pain
Before you I thought wealth
Uncertain about life, I was
I now know what I want
Living near you, it is
Together could be a picture so nice
Sex in my fantasy is a tiny piece
Overtly caring is the biggest slice
Like me, and I'll like you thrice
Exalt me and I'll raise your price
Lovely Jes, my solace
You are my virtue and vice
For you, I'll play like an ace
Only with certitude, will I throw the dice
Read my word representing my face
Hear how smooth they are, think phonetic ice
Evening comes I envision you in lace
Resulting in a sweet night filled with peace.
Superabundant fondness of you
Presumed obsessed by my friends
Incited by some of them
Reciprocal friendship I desire from you
Inconsistency would not be pretty
Tenderly warm friendship would be pretty.
Outbalanced by passion is my reason
Fighting the heart is so hard
Language cannot fully express it
I would say I'm passion struck.
Flying is one of my wishes
Exploring the sky like birds
Hovering in the air has got to be nice
Obviously it's a pipedream
Worst part is it feels feasible compared to you
As faint as a whisper in a dream
Meeting you feels hopeless sometimes.
Arrest my excessive flow of fervor
Zealotry seems to be callously ruling me
Incapacitate its luring effects
Neutralize it with your touch
Grant me a moment with you.
Yearning has become part of me
Obliterate it completely from me
Undo the spell you put on me.
Appealing to you with my full heart
Render to me a portion of your heart
Ebb this wild passion in my heart.
They tell fascinating tales
Odysseys and great fables
Having thrilling worlds in their minds
And I am one of them
Verily it is wonderful to dream
Except it's not real
But you are very real
Regarding that real fact
Omits me from dreamers
Uplifting me to aimers
Greatness of mind is a great talent
Having it fruitful is great toil
Thousands of men decease with hidden greatnesses
Looking at those odds lowers my spirits
I hope not to end before reaching my greatness
For me that greatness is you.
Excelling in life is such a drudge
Time seems to be against my deeds
Obstacles come from every dimension
Blessings are a long way away
Easy is a word that's way away
I nevertheless just keep on trying
Not today perhaps, but someday
God is not that cruel, I believe.
Time will tell if my faith is true.
Help me God I do not seek to test You
Exhume the love You had before sin
Bring the best of angels to help me
Urge my soul to hold on
Time may not be enough for me
Take a breath and grant my wish.
Easy as pie I believe it is to You
Rate my faith and You'll see
Flawlessly faithful is what You'll see
Looking at no other god but You is what You'll see
I at least I hope that's what You'll see
Edify that, it's my desperate plea
Sorry if I'm completely off.
Time will tell what I did right or wrong
Hapless is a life I'm living
Eccentric insipidity is what I'm having
Barbarians I sometimes envy
In the sense that their lives are lively
Ravenous and famished always
Deprived of a living
Special events never come
Staying in this world is very sad
Ecstasy is but in others' mouths
Abject penury is what I'm in
Listless toward me is the fate
I breathe merely because I was born.
Furnish me with a better world
Every night I say to God
A still silence is all I get
No dreams no voices
Darkly empty is the reply I always get.
Uncertainty sometimes feeds on me
Strangely though I'll always believe in God
Through all the grief I experienced
He was my only consolation
Exscinding Him from my life is impossible
Better a reticent God than no god at all.
Eden must be a place so pretty
Admirable in ways so plenty
It is something, but you Jes make it nothing
Fascinatingly stupendous that's you
Unparalleled glamour you hold
Like a blue rose you are rare
Talking so sweet your words are medicine
Healing my deepest wounds and sorrows
Elixir, that's you Miss Panacea
Best of all sweetness
Overflowing with tenderness
Those are your qualities
Hearty and friendly
Easy going I think.
A fantasy of you grants
Just the medicine any man wants
Euphony of your voice
Sensuality of the motion of your neck
The qualities I like about you.
I like all your qualities
He must have enjoyed carving you
Endless artifact effects
Sculpture of sculptures
I would say His greatest work of art.
Meaningless that may be to some
Possibly madness to others
Little old me does not care
Even if I myself think me mad
All that matters is your thought.
Life is like a long adventure
Losing things and gaining things
I am a man stationed on one thing
Nothing lost and nothing gained
You are that one thing
Of course I could be crazy
Reserve room for that
How does a mad man know if he is?
Awestruck is what I was
Notwithstanding the different worlds
Day and night I hoped for you
Still nurturing that hope even today
Breath taking smiles
Ultra pretty face
The features I like about you
Oven fresh complexion
Neat curvy body
Eyes like brown diamonds
I like that squinty thing you do
Squinty thing doer!
Marvelous is a word too low
Outstandingly marvelous is more like it
Rest assured I'm no stalker
Enjoy your life without worry
Finely pure is my heart
Apparently I already stated
So keep smiling
I hope this is one of them.
Nonillion dollars I would pass
Abandon all there is
That, just for dinner with you
Indecent, pardon me if I am
Necessities of my life
Girl you're one of them
That is because you inspire me
Having you in my consciousness
Assists my creativity
Nihility is what I escaped
All because I saw your picture
Lucent to my soul
Lucid and lovely
An angel I thought to myself
Nothing can be better I thought that too
Delightfully lovable I thought
I saw a slice of paradise.
Forever and ever I wanted it to last
Unfortunately it was just a moment
Life went on I reached a future
Life still goes on I'll reach another future
You I still like, still just a picture.
A motion picture
Picturesque that's you
Painting of passion
Can never be passing
That's all seen through a picture
Equaled by none on earth
Heavenly models render their honor
Equinox of my want
Right! That is meaningless
That's how you make me feel
Ordinariness holds a white flag
Urges to be extreme, surge
Gentle but wild
How do you make me feel like that?
Adulation is clarified by my words
Luminous admiration they show
Line after line I compliment you.
Intelligence is one thing I wish for
Having that would enable me to impress you
And I'm talking really impress you
Value my words dear Jes
Even though they seem psychotic
I don't know the future, do you?
Some things are driven by the Maker
And haply, this poem could be one of them.
Perfection is a word that evokes thoughts of you
I believe your beauty is predominant not only physically
Credulity is not in my nature my belief has to be true
Ten thousand lifetimes I could live
Unmitigated affection for you will still be in me
Rich or poor worse or better
Evil or good, you're my number one.
Good looking in all ways
Over-striding all my desires
Delicately exquisite eyes she has
Favor me enough to reach her
Anoint me with divinity to charm her
Lead all my steps toward her
Listen to all I say about her
Inculcate my affection upon her
Demonstrate its intensity
Offer her eternity for dinner with me
Nod Your head in assent with me
Obscurity is not in my words
Trust me they are as Your words
Honor my words though I'm just a man
Assert their genuineness to angels
Validate their meaning
Execute necessary complying actions
Maker of all
Under Your sun I exist
Change my days for the better
Harness my destiny
I count on Your guidance
Navigate the body of my fate
Think about it
Help me to help You.
I believe my joy is Your joy
Spirit of love and kindness
Water my essence
Optimize its viability
Re-route me when I'm lost
Love me Dear God I pray.
April was made pretty by your birth
Light graceful motions of your neck
Lovely warm smiles you make
I admit you're my excitement's peak
Honey may be served but you I'll pick
Ad-infinitum is a time too small
Victory over all is a triumph too small
Enhanced sex is a pleasure too small
All that is great is in your smile
Remember my words always.
Even though I'm a perfect stranger
My interests are of a close friend
You are in spirit a close friend
Would you someday say the same?
Or would you find me totally unappealing
Rethreading my heart would be my toil
Doomsday would seem very far
Sadness would rule if to you I'm unappealing.
Many think I'm mad
You I don't know.
Let my words draw a picture of me
Open your eyes and define my color
View my soul through my art
Engage your thoughts in defining me
And you may someday say what you see
Notify me when you do see
Disfavor it may be, say what you see.
Your name is common but I love it
On account of being yours
Unlike the rest it suits you.
Alba a perfect last-name
Like butter on bread it suits you
Like a golden bracelet with your name.
I would have to mention the middle-name too
As romantic as France it is
Silky and tender if names could be
Kowtow at its sound I would
Imbuing passion with its pronunciation
Sanity flees at its every sound.
Fountains of youth fables and fairytales
Offer no better fantasy
Regular as you are you are fabulous.
Half alive I feel without you
Efficiency of my being is reduced
Rationality is somewhat blurred
The day will come when I expire
On that day you I'll still desire.
Knowing you are the three elements and fire
Nothing can be placed higher
Only you is my joy's thickest layer
World for sale, for you I'm the buyer
Trust me I'm not a liar.
Healthy living is gratitude for life
And gratitude is to like life
To like life is to like something about it
That thing for me is you
Healthy living I redefine as you.
Elate me with a smile
Revitalize my disintegrating soul
Empty the sadness in my heart
I feel so sad sometimes when I look
Sighting you and knowing
Seeing that you are just a picture
Optimistically though, I never breakdown
My flexible mind knows
Every dog has its day
Opportunities will come
Nice and easy I'll take them
Earnestly and subtly I'll take them
Sun rising sun falling
One day I'll realize my dream.
Many may wish the same
Every true fan does
Work a little thought
How many will ever write like me
Educated well, I'm not
Rare, I am
Exceptionally rare, you judge.
Inspiration is my core
Nakedly clear you're that inspiration.
Thank God He designed you
How else would I have been inspired?
If you were never born
Surely I would have never been.
Writing would have been hard.
On and on my work goes
Rhyming in essays and songs
Like they can hear melodies
Days dance to my songs
Winds blow in symphony
Hail and breeze alike
On and on I write my songs
Whatever matter whatever place
I speak through melodies
Sweet and sincere
Heaven smiles at my words
Even hell may calm a little
Stars in the night sky dance
Tails of animals wag
On and on I spread beauty
State your matter I make it better
Allow me to mold it
You'll wish you did sooner.
Hit me on one cheek
Even the devil wouldn't dare
Loving kindness is all I wear
Like a martyr a lot I can bare
On and on I stand steadfast
Seasons come and go but I stay
On and on
Platinum and gold
Lustrous and grand
Every gemstone there is
Affluence in its grandeur
Shines dimly when compared to you
Earth as a whole is too cheap.
Millions of finest ladies can't equal you
Argosies from all over are a treasure too small
Kings from all over hold no better treasure
Exclusive splendor you hold.
May your face be found on Abraham's bosom!
You alone can brighten the face of paradise.
Made for a very lucky man
Divine or not my love is absolute
In times past times that are and times to be
Virtually the virtuous side of my soul
In times "forever never"
Nothing in all creation is better
Everything I need air, food and water
Jessica you are my breath of time
