The Dragon & The Phoenix by April Thomas

The Dragon & The Phoenix

 

Filled with pride, ego, and power he set out to destroy her. 

 

The Phoenix in an unsettled rest surrounds her self with love, peace, harmony and beauty. She knows of the quite storm rumbling below her, but with a firm footing in her faith she is prepared for the finally battle. 

 

He comes towards her with an untamed, dark and violent spirit, but she is unmoved. 

 

Like the most elegant dances performed by the most praised dancers, they fight. However, their fight appears to others as a simple lover’s quarrel, but upon deeper observation the truth is revealed. 

 

Once upon a time they were one… he lead and she followed without question, and with complete trust. Now like an unexpected shift of the earth’s axis. A bitter war between them rumbles on. Swords are drawn and flesh is sliced open, pure red blood flows, and pain is suppressed as they fight on uncaring of who lives or who dies. No longer do they fight for their own lives it is all about the battle of good verses evil. 

 

Who will win, who will lose? He vows that no one will have her, she promises she will one day know happiness. The battle continues on, and in the end only one is left standing.

 

Dropping her sword she kneels down besides her fallen love. She holds him close, resting his head on her beast, as life slips away from him, he understands now, what he should of understood before, that no one can defeat love.

 

As she whispers her final good bye, she lifts her soul to the Creator to be renewed and returned to fight the darkness with love once again.

I want you by April Thomas

I Want You

Can you hear it…the sound of love’s heart,

 thumping…pounding… moaning…I want you.

kissing, grinding, moaning can you hear my heart?

 

Can you feel it…the sensation of love’s tender kiss,

goosebumps traveling up my arm…I want you.

soft caress turn into passionate scratches…

 

Can you taste it…my lover’s sweet tongue 

caressing the softness of my lips.

Savoring the essence of me…I want you.

 

Can you smell it…the aroma,

 the musk of passion rising.

I woke up in the morning thinking, I want you!

 

Can you see it…

through love’s eyes we can only see  beauty,

blind to the ugliness of the world, we can only see each other.

Last Night by April Thomas

Last Night by April Thomas

Last night as I lay in my bed delighted in a peaceful sleep, you came to me.

Last night while my heart ached for you, you appeared to me.

Last night in my dream you stopped me from running away from you.

Last night in my dream you showed me your love is true.

Last night in my dream my fingertips traveled along your soft skin.

Last night in my dream we breathed each other in.

Last night as I slept our bodies merged and we made love without regret.

Last night as I slept my soul relived a love that it cannot forget.

Last night tears soaked my pillow, as my hands felt your presence leave

Last night I felt your heart, soul, and your body, grieve for what couldn’t be.

Broken

The day could not get any more difficult for Cressida dash. She is forced to defend a harden criminal which she believes is guilty, and she is deeply disturbed when her father displays a dark side of himself that she had never seen before. Her love life is not any better. After being stood up by a blind date, she has had enough and Cressida finds solace at the bottom of a bottle of rum. Before she can comprehend what is  happening to her, she falls off of her bar stool into the awaiting arms of Maxwell Martinez.

Maxwell has his hands full dealing with the family business, as well as his family’s life long spiritual mission to defend humanity against Satan and his legion of insidious demons.  When Cressida crosses his path he soon realizes their encounter means so much more. Cressida doesn’t realize the danger she is in. Her father has offered her soul to Satan. Maxwell will have to act fast to break the contract and open her eyes to the truth, but he has no idea what he is getting himself into.

Prey (poem)

Prey

Like a botanical garden in the midst of chaos, your body summons me,
as my eyes gorge themselves of you, I know that this can not be.
Your love, you carelessly throw on plants and animals you do not know,
but for me, for me, you care not to show.
How is this right? When all that I have been taught tells me it’s wrong.
Foolish to care, foolish to feel the love that is blossoming strong.

Like a predator stalking his prey, I follow you through this miasma world, you see as a Nirvana.
This… veneer dimension, you hold so dear, in it I wait to capture you there.
Like a predator I will take down my prey, and adhere to my beliefs no matter the fear.

The opportunity has come and we stand face to face…
lost in your beauty…somehow, I’ve fallen into your  embrace.

The abyss of your love writhes me with pain. The abyss of your love…atavistic and pure…
Release me from your wretched hold, release me I beg, before I lose my cold…
Don’t let me slip deeper into your love, for I know I will lose the things I’ve held above.

Do we give up too easily

on committed relationships?

Everyday you hear about couples splitting for various reasons. Divorce is such a common part of a relationship that it’s almost expected after a few years. Why is it that our grandparents stayed married for over 25,50 or in some cases 75 years? Yet today’s couples are surprised to make it to 5 or 7 years.when is it right to walk away from a committed relationship?

Most of us began learning about relationships through our parents. As a chile we took mental notes of how our parents handle disagreements and personal struggles. After a certain age we can no longer blame our parents for their mistakes in marriage and/or family life. Some where along the way we are now fully responsible for our actions,choices and circumstance.

Being in a committed relationship takes a lot of work patience and understanding. There will be disagreements, conflicts and various challenges. None of which is a reason to walk away. Each argument is an opportunity to learn more about your mate and yourself. It’s a great opportunity to grow and strengthen your relationship. It’s also a chance to create a stronger bond. Communication is such a powerful tool in any relationship and learning how to express yourself in a healthy way can turn any negative situation into a positive one, where both can grow from the experience.

We have so many layers to our personality,yet we are often surprised when we discover something new about our mate. If we were all one dimensional than this would all be very simple and boring. Thank God we are not, and this is what makes relationships so captivating.

We are all unique. Learning to compromise and accept each others difference is vital to the longevity of any relationship. Instead of trying to change each other accept each other as the unique beings we are. It could be challenging at first and takes practice and patience,but the rewards are great. They may not always reciprocate which is unfortunate, however you will learn a lot about yourself and people as a whole.

The next time you and your mate have reached a point where separation seems like a solution ask yourself this question. If you were to see them in a new relationship will you be upset or at peace. If you have children involved can you look your grown child in the eyes and tell them honestly that you did all that you could to save that relationship and that in the end we knew that separation was the best choice for your well being.

The best relationships started on a healthy foundation of mutual respect. Even though it can be lost at times. Respect can be found again.
Until next time God bless and live well.
