"The Back Door" #POETRY #SADDNESS ~ Richard Clayderman "From This Moment" #MUSICVIDEO

Introduction:
The bad news is time flies. The good news is you're the pilot." -” ― Michael Altshuler


The Back Door

Fall envelops short colder days,
there are hints of melancholy mixed in with cold rain.
Coffee in hand, looking out the back door,
mesmerized; a cigarette ash drops to the floor.

Time echoes pure
laughter as children play,
dogs barking at holes freshly made,
a clubhouse swarmed as Indians invade,
and a trampoline set under a Maples’ shade.

And there were…
birthday piñatas’ bashed, as candy fell,
overnights and stories they had to tell.
A bass boat rotting along the fence line,
family barbeques with images seizing time.

Silence forecloses
as a tear or two rolls splattering the floor,
where broods that twirled, dance no more.
Coffee now cold; she quietly turns way,
tolerant to circumstances in a dissimilar day.

"My Bell" #POETRY #DESPAIR #Attitude #Passion ~ Anita Ward "Ring My Bell" #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
“There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.” 
― Judith McNaught


My Bell
I’ve been down and out,
truthfully,
it’s no lie,
and it’s not like I can pin point why.
Maybe it started on Monday, I sigh,
with the answer I gave the boss; he didn’t buy,
or the sadness because they never call,
yet I worked so hard raising them all.
Every time things pile up on me,
I bring out despair like an old fashion melody.
thoughtless,
wordless,
hopeless, that’s the song,
I listen to it all night long,
and if that’s not so bad, let me find,
a horror I experienced when I was about nine,
which will definitely kicks my ass every time.
This stint was so bad they gave me a pill,
and boy that zeroed out all I could feel.
I laugh,
but it’s true,
even my guy knew,
trying for an hour; who could tell,
he left pissed off without ringing my bell,
and that hurt me like hell!
So I quit the pill,
to feel the slightest chill,
and then I gave him a shout,
Boy! He came through and laid me out!

Ahhh happiness... The end
PS. It's in the spirit of entertainment only... lmao

The video is a musical rendition of "Ring My Bell" by Anita Ward and was uploaded on YOUTUBE, May 22, 2011 by MC: Mus1c Collection. The music genre is R&B and I have listed the lyrics for additional reading pleasure.

"Ring My Bell"(3)
I'm glad you're home
Now did you really miss me?
I guess you did by the look in your eye
(Look in your eye, look in your eye)
Well lay back and relax
While I put away the dishes (put away the dishes)
Then you and me can rock a bell
You can ring my bell, ring my bell
You can ring my bell, ring my bell
You can ring my bell, ring my bell
You can ring my bell, ring my bell
The night is young
And full of possibilities
Well, come on and let yourself be free, yeah
My love for you (love for you, love for you)
So long I've been savin'
Tonight was made for me and you

You can ring my bell, ring my bell
(Ring my bell, ding-dong-ding)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell
(Ring my bell, ring-a-ring-a-ring)
You can ring my bell, ring my bell
(Ring my bell, ding-dong-ding)
You can

Have a blessed evening or morning and thank you for your continued support.

Peace and Love Always, Diana
Sug... mmmm ... your taste

"Cascades" #POETRY & Sade - By Your Side #MUSICVIDEO #PHOTOGRAPHY

Introduction:
I can do anything I want.
Be with anyone I want.
And it'll be my choice.
― Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me


Cascades
It’s the break of dawn,
Rays stir a night tiring and long.
Clouds move past in slow fashion,
Delight rises, twirling and she dances.

Arms stretched upward to the sky,
With wonder she cannot deny.
Yet questions come to mind,
Why? All those ties still bind.

Life knocked on the door,
And she let it in the night before.
Death left pocketing the mundane,
As she stares boldly to current refrains.

It’s a modest thing, but unknown,
She crisscrossed the stony road.
Not due to results ill made,
By choices dropping as water falls cascade.

In Love with You #POETRY ~ The Isley Brothers - For The Love Of You #MUSICVIDEO

Introduction:
There are not enough days in forever to allow me to fully express the depth of my love for you.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience


In Love with You
I gasp, without your breath in my soul,
or gentle love which I’ve come to know,
and you’re the essence in a man, I revere,
everything; I hold precious and dear.

Strong, tenacious, a quiet gentleman,
resolute, defiant; willing to take a stand,
and if there are flaws one might see,
you’re perfect and brilliant to me!

You’re, the smile in my sunrise,
the laughter as the day goes by,
and when life is difficult or contrite,
your arms encircle; holding me tight.

And yes…
I assert what’s said here is all true,
because I’m deeply in love with you….

Norah Jones "Tenderly" #MUSICVIDEO #JAZZ #Gentle #LOVE #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction

“A kiss is a secret told to the mouth instead of the ear; kisses are the messengers of love and tenderness.” ~ Ingrid Bergman


Monday and it was a good day! Maybe it’s the music in my heart which was inspired by a lovely poem written by Stormy Angel. The song is titled "Tenderly"(2) and this rendition is sung by Norah Jones. "Tenderly" is a popular song published in 1946 with music by Walter Gross and lyrics by Jack Lawrence and sung by many famous singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and so many others. The version sung by Norah Jones is considered a Piano Jazz genre and I highly recommend this sensitive, smooth sound; as a matter of fact I recommend all of her music. It's all just perfect and right! The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Apr 22, 2010 by iCurlee.

Tenderly (3)
The evening breeze
Caressed the trees, tenderly
The trembling trees
Embraced the breeze, tenderly

Then you and I
Came wandering by
And lost in a sigh
Were we

The shore was kissed
By sea and mist, tenderly
I can't forget
How two hearts met
Breathlessly

Your arms opened wide
And closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love
So tenderly

Your arms opened wide
And closed me inside
You took my lips
You took my love
So tenderly

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning. Remember music is my language and these are my thoughts tonight. 

Peace and Love Always Diana
You are always on my mind Sugar...

At Last #POETRY #MUSICVIDEO #PHOTOGRAPHY #SUNSETS

Introduction:
“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire.”~ Aristotle

At Last
They meet…
At last,
on a warm spring day,
as she steps off a midnight train,
running with a two hour delay.

Oh yes, there were those…
Shy smiles,
and the customary fondle that beguiles.
Not to mention: Silly chatter in endless flare,
which immediately disappears into thin air.

One could see…
Emotions riding high yet slightly controlled,
He touches: fingers to skin, lips to kiss; as passion unfolds,
and then he steps to the street hailing a yellow cab,
as they drive off to the resort; a lavish seaside pad.

While the sun sets, ebbs roar...
As he corners her by the bathroom door,
a slow dance in seduction commences,
aroused and stiff, he presses; she winces,
"it’s difficult to breathe" is what she's thinking.

As twilight begins to rule…
He holds her arms firmly against the wall,
desire so heighten, it’s hard to forestall,
and in time they land on the king-size bed,
committed to sharing sexuality as clothes are shed.

Barry White "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe" #MUSICVIDEO

Introduction
“I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”––The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Thursday evening and I am reaching for a slow groove tonight! It’s is all about Barry White, a glass of wine and "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe". The song is considered an R&B, Soul genre. I highly recommend this sensitive, smooth sound; as a matter of fact I recommend all of his music. It is all just perfect! The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Feb 14, 2011 by JCVdude.

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning.

 "Only Love Can Hurt Like This" (3)
I'd tell myself you don't mean a thing,
But what we got, got no hold on me
But when you're not there I just crumble
I tell myself I don't care that much,
But I feel like I die 'til I feel your touch,

Only love, only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this
Must have been a deadly kiss
Only love can hurt like this

Say I wouldn't care if you walked away,
But every time you're there I'm begging you to stay,
When you come close I just tremble
And every time, every time you go,
It's like a knife that cuts right through my soul

Only love, only love can hurt like this
Only love can hurt like this,
Must have been a deadly kiss,
Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this

Your kisses burn into my skin,
Only love can hurt like this
But it's the sweetest pain,
Burning hot through my veins,
Love is torture makes me more sure

Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this,
Must have been the deadly kiss,
Only love can hurt like this,

Only love can hurt like this,
Your kisses burn into my skin,
Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this,
Save me, save me,
Only love, only love,
'Cause only love can hurt like this
And it must have been the deadly kiss

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning.

Peace and Love Always Diana
