Fantasy Kingdom

Leave it to a3 for me to get another piece of inspirition. I blame this one on Dave who put a poetry contest to get a poem about the guild done up. So without farther notice :)
Within these walls you hear
Those voices of old and new,
The laughter,
The joy,
The tears,
And sometimes the fights,
But we have gone through
And worked things to bring this guild
This little place to be family,
A group of people that you can talk to,
A group of people that people
Can feel they belong to,
A place that stands
And works beyond all the odds.
We have had our down times
Where nothing seemed to go right
And there have been our up times
Where everything seemed wonderful
And dreamlike,
We rather use trade chat
Than the guild chat,
We always joke around
And come to love each other,
Although some members come and go
And staff changes more times
Than most of us care to count,
But I am always there
Holding it all together
The best I can,
And I hope it is enough
For this guild is my a3 dream,
And dreams c…

As The Wind Blows

Well I have been married for almost 3 weeks and things are going great marriage wise, other wise well let's just say things been interesting and complex all at the same time.

I Never Told You (Paul)

I think I got my first ever poetry series started. A friend of mine that use to belong to Paul's writing group use to write these poems that were a part of this "series" so I somewhat blame them but I guess when you get one really good idea for a poetry challenge it can become two or even more :) Here's the second poem of the new I Never Told You Series

I never told you how your melodies
And belief in my voice
Set my spirits and my will free
Giving my sometimes low self esteem
The ability to believe and hope
And that things could change,
I never told you how I couldn’t
Catch my breath when I saw you
Five years after we first met
And how the melodies
Were still simple to make
After so many years,
I never told you that your
Protective nature
Always made me feel safe
Back when childhood days
Weren’t always so easy,
I never told you how much
I valued your friendship
And how your advice that I could hear
Silently in my mind
Always helped me,
You told me never give up my…

I Never Told You (Jeremiah)

A newer poem due to the poetry challenge at Paul's group once again :)

I never told you how your eyes shined
Every time you smiled,
I never told you the way you made
Me smile and feel cared for
Every time you stood up for me,
I never spoke to you about
The crush I developed after
Not seeing you for five years,
I never got to tell you how afraid
I was when they thought
That you did something very wrong,
I never told you I wanted a chance
To be more than your friend,
I was more shy and quiet
And couldn’t get over my fears
To talk to you and pour out
The deepest part of my soul.
I never got to tell you how much
It meant to me when you
Signed my yearbook the last year
We went to school together.
I never got to tell you how much
Your friendship and smiles
And laughter you brought
Were part of the best memories
Of my younger days.
I never told you Jeremiah all these things
But I hope you know deep in your soul
That I always cared for you
And that you were always one
Of my best guy frien…
