“Another Rant w/ some Poetry Attached”

As I have said before, there are so many thoughts running through my head that they get a little jumbled. I really do need to start carrying around a pen and a notepad to write things down. I have stated before that while at work it is not always easy to find time to do this. Yet I have no excuse for when I am at home. Except perhaps, the idea that since I am at home I will get it down on paper soon enough, I put it off ’til later. Then “BOOM” just like that the thought is gone. Sometimes they re-appear, but not very often.

Another reason I need to keep pen and pad handy, is all those darn commercials for medications. Medications for ailments, that as I child I/we never heard of. I cannot believe the number of new aches, pains, and what have ya’s that they have come out with now-a-days. Not that I am trying to be a conspiracy theorist here, but don’t you think that maybe we are just keeping big business in business. Especially the pharmaceutical companies. 

As for my New Year’s Revolution I am doing ok, not great by any standards. Particularly not mine. It is a work in progress I plan to diligently pursue. In accordance with the promise I made last writing here are two of my latest. The first one “Necessary tears” I wrote back in November early December, the second one “‘Twas the Night Before” I wrote, started writing a couple of weeks ago having finished it last week. I erred earlier I have three. The third poem is one of those that has been sitting on my pad for some time now so no telling when I actually wrote it. It is titled “I See You” (part II). I call it part II, as it is in line with one of the poems “Through Your Eyes” that is in my first book “Pathways”. Anyway here we go I hope you enjoy them.

T’was the Night Before

T’was the night before forever,
not too much on my mind.
As I search my thoughts
there is but one heart that I find.

‘Tis the heart of a woman I so
heavenly adore.
‘tis the one special someone to
whom I present my amore.

T’was the night before forever
I am out on a limb.
Do I keep dangling my heart
do I reel it in?

For this quest I know the answer
is there afore my eyes.
I will bait my heart on my sleeve
Hoping you savor the prize.


Necessary Tears

There are tears of laughter,
and there are tears of pain.
They can flow like the river,
or they can fall like the rain.

There are tears that we hide,
and there are tears that we show.
You learn when to hold back
you know when to let it go.

There will be times when you wish
you could get them to fall.
There will be times when you’ll
wonder why you cry them at all.

Your tears come from the heart,
and they come from the soul.
They seem to be tearing you apart
yet they are making you whole.

We may cry when times are joyous,
we may cry when times are scary.
There are times when it seems futile,
there are times when it is necessary.

I See You (part II)

I hear the smile in your laughter,
It brings me to joyful tears.

I hear the smile in your laughter,
It chases off my fears.

I see the laughter in your eyes,
my heart longs to be all around you.

I see the laughter in your eyes,
My heart does feel anew.

I feel your soul in your smile,
Arousing the strength In me.
I feel your soul in your smile,
Deserving the best I can ever be.

DISCLAIMER: pharmaceutical<spelled without spell check aren’t I proud. Sure hope my spel;l check is write. 🙂



About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
