    Eye of the storm- Ryan Stevenson:

    "In the eye of the storm
    You remain in control
    And in the middle of the war
    You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor
    When my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me
    In the eye of the storm

    When the solid ground is falling out from underneath my feet
    Between the black skies, and my red eyes, I can barely see
    When I realize I've been sold out by my friends and my family
    I can feel the rain reminding me

    In the eye of the storm, You remain in control
    In the middle of the war, You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor, when my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me
    In the eye of the storm

    Mmm, when my hopes and dreams are far from me
    And I'm runnin' out of faith
    I see the future I picture slowly fade away
    And when the tears of pain and heartache
    Are pouring down my face
    I find my peace in Jesus' name

    In the eye of the storm
    You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
    In the middle of the war
    You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor
    When my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me
    In the eye of the storm (in the eye of the storm)

    When the test comes in and the doctor says
    I've only got a few months left
    It's like a bitter pill I'm swallowing
    I can barely take a breath
    And when addiction steals my baby girl
    And there's nothing I can do
    My only hope is to trust You
    I trust You, Lord

    In the eye of the storm
    You remain in control
    In the middle of the war
    You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor
    When my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me (yeah!)
    In the eye of the storm

    You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
    In the middle of the war
    You guard my soul
    You alone are the anchor
    When my sails are torn
    Your love surrounds me
    In the eye of the storm

    Oh, in the eye of
    Lord, in the eye of the storm
    I know You're watching me, yeah
    Ay

    When the storm is raging
    And my hope is gone
    When my flesh is failing
    You're still holding on...

    When the storm is raging
    And my hope is gone
    When my flesh is failing (
    You're still holding on, ooh

    When the storm is raging
    And my hope is gone
    Even when my flesh is failing
    You're still holding on, holding on

    The Lord is my Shepherd
    I have all that I need
    He let's me rest in green meadows
    He leads me beside peaceful streams
    He renews my strength
    He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His Name
    Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid
    For You are close beside me"

    A truly great artist and a great song.
    My favorite is his song- ""Tennessee Whiskey""....
    Such magnificent lyrics , amplified by that magnificent singing voice he has.
    I just presented a youtube video of the song in the music thread here below - What are you listening to?
    So much of that song was a part of my life, my wild youth. --Tyr

    True Love Can Only Come From True And Sincere Heart

    He cried, lord grant me one kiss,
    Tis her lips I so dearly miss,
    dark curls set her beauty apart
    my angel that has won this heart
    I that such treasure deserve not
    my love she has forever got
    no other sweetheart can compare
    she of blue eyes and raven hair.
    A soft answer came back as this,
    Truth is, you - she so dearly miss.

    She cried, God bless our new life,
    I pray, only to be his wife
    his touch, a sensual treasure
    our nights to be sweetest treasure
    I ask for such true wedded bliss
    he gifts eternity each kiss
    please bless our future together
    with faith, to life's bad times weather.
    A soft answer came back as this,
    Love shall bring you, his lips to kiss.

    As all was said, down came the word,
    Your sincere pleas and faith was heard
    you both, loving true, will be wed
    blessed will be your marriage bed
    treasure will be born of deep love
    future blessings sent from above
    such be written, such shall be done
    you will have what your love has spun.
    A last reply then to them came,
    Light comes, as one honors my name.

    With about a dozen edits, decided this was a finished piece. So presented it. Now perhaps she may see I can write other than dark verse. Although with me- dark verse- is indeed a dear passion. And to me represents that which is the other side of the coin in this world that we -all- know has so very much darkness in it.. A fact, that poetry's ever so very rich history- so clearly and magnificently reveals to those that look..

    This was born this morn because my wife read my new blog on the master Poet, Edgar Allan Poe. She then asked me why do your write about so much dark? Can you not write about positive things- perhaps about love? I replied yes I can. She replied, well then show me a good new romantic poem if you can and I mean today before I come home from work.

    CONTINUED-- A challenge to me is a challenge to be honored. So I read about 5 dozen sonnets, many of which were composed by great poets here....... Then I read a few more by Byron, and by Shakespeare as well. Grabbed a pen and inked this first onto paper. Then into my digital note.

    Hell, It Aint No Fad, But Best I Forget It

    I want it so bad but I just can't get it
    Hell, it aint no fad, but best I forget it

    Life is just a broken heart disease
    And not golden treasure that please
    But that calm after the damn storm
    And in my prayers I pray you no harm
    Tis my dying soul they want to seize
    And lost spirit in this earthen form
    O' tis darkness, the evil in terra form

    I want it so bad but I just can't get it
    Hell, it aint no fad, but best I forget it

    Love is the harvest but mine is absent
    A hero's sword is straight but mine is bent
    It is a moonlit night and I'm a'cryin
    I've lost my true sight, I am a'dyin
    Comes that calm after the damn storm
    And in my prayers I pray you no harm
    I beg forgiveness for all of my lyin'

    I want it bad but I just can't get it
    Hell, it aint no fad, but best I forget it

    Verses From The Remnants Of Broken Chains, A Short Series


    Verses From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

    There, vigilant bronze feeds the steeds of war
    Within long silent shadows, there you are
    Lost child, sired from Prometheus unbound
    Promise of a golden harvest not found.

    R.J. Lindley , Nov. 12th 1981


    Wisdom From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

    Attitudes and platitudes- hold that thought
    Sad child, in your wicked lies you are caught
    Crimson tinges sets the flower apart
    Far too late after the last ship departs.

    R.J. Lindley , Nov. 15th 1981


    Justice From The Remnants Of Broken Chains


    You smiled licking your frosty callous thumb
    Felt injustice, when struck both deaf and dumb
    Laughed out loud as you rode your horse to death
    Cursing that gift under your angry breath.

    R.J. Lindley , Nov. 19th 1981

    The Bloodstone, The Raven And Master Poe,
    Part Three of Three



    There came hammer knocking on the back door
    As Poe was acting out pitiful moans
    Raven thought, could this be from Hell's dark shore
    Another beast hearing anguishing groans
    Then a sweet young voice, from a mortal man
    Asking entry from his friend Master Poe
    Raven mused, more fish for frying pan
    Tonight shall be a most delightful show!

    Poe look startled but said, "enter young lord"
    I was merely rehearsing for a play
    Pray tell me what news for I am bored
    And this has been a truly dreadful day
    Young Luke crossed the room and bowed low
    Rising gave Poe the dagger as a gift
    Asking, Master Poe why this strange request
    And your odd message, bring it and be swift.

    Poe took the weapon with a sad, sad look
    In a wailing voice said- "this is my Fate"
    As he did so his entire body shook
    He in soft voice moaned, you are not too late
    Young Luke was startled and a bit confused
    Have you such sorrows as to death invite
    Asking, for this you would not have used
    A dear friend, to bring this sharp blade tonight!

    No sooner said, than Raven cried, "no not yet"
    Poe you must not, I need far more than this
    Too soon, dark master and I have a bet
    And next blood moon is to be your death kiss
    Poe and Luke pretended to not such hear
    As Luke moved and blocked Raven's view
    Raven almost exploded from the fear
    When Luke that loud cry gave, Raven then knew!

    Alas! Raven thought such must never be
    This calamity that has foiled my plan
    Was never what Fate and I did agree
    Not for this hideous and loathsome man
    Fate, have you our agreement now went back on
    Did not our sworn oath -we in hot-blood swear
    And both splash our venom on the bloodstone
    This, after my accursed soul I bare!

    As Luke stepped back, there Poe in blood lay
    That dagger to the hilt stick in his chest
    Luke fell to his knees, God forgive I pray
    May our brother Poe now have peaceful rest
    Raven beside itself, at thus being cheated
    Cursed sky, cursed even louder Fate
    As Luke into far corner retreated
    Raven came forward to eat from that plate.

    As Raven neared, his invisible cloak fell
    Approaching were Master Poe had died
    And from distant hill the midnight church bell
    Rang in tune with those tears Raven cried
    Leaning closer to whisper in Poe's ear
    Raven over dead master hovered
    Saying, this fresh blood my soul now so cheers
    I shall taste it and my face now smother!

    With its ghastly black tongue it licked
    As it got that first bloody red-ink taste
    Would know it had been cleverly tricked
    Poe acted swiftly, with no time to waste
    The dagger plunged into Raven's chest
    Raven felt its razor sharp silver blade
    Poe said, I send thee to your hellish nest
    And to the death that your evil hath made!

    Then Raven vanished into thin air
    Room suddenly lit up with golden light
    A glowing angel then appeared there
    Allowing Poe and Luke to see its sight
    With a joyful shout it sang right on out
    You shall both be truly, deeply blessed
    And with deep pride walk this world all about
    Raven now this failure has confessed.

    Luke spoke first, saying but Raven is dead
    How can it, such confession ever speak
    Poe, did you hear what this angel has said
    Raven can again into our world sneak
    Poe addressed the angel, is this true
    That foul beast can innocent souls aggrieve
    Did it not receive the death it was due
    Or has Fate- Luke and I now so deceived?

    Angel replied, that was Raven's first death
    Evil beast has six more deaths to endure
    Before that savage thing takes its last breath
    Earth not see it's like, of that I assure
    Poe said, of this night I shall set in verse
    We must ever be on guard and alert
    And remember this beast is a dark curse
    That lives to get revenge and mankind hurt!

    The Bloodstone, The Raven And Master Poe
    Part Three of Three

    Note:
    Presented as composed- unedited

    Note_
    Total of three parts, composed in a total of 200
    rhyming verses....This is part three- the conclusion.
    A dark tale, in rhyme and with the epic struggle
    between Raven and Master Poe.
    Raven with yet more six more lives to infest earth
    and thus plague Poe and whomever it chooses.
    I myself have heard the late night knocking but
    but laughed it off and set mousetraps -knowing
    that disbelief is a stout shield…. Admitting that
    such is a reality may bring in an unwanted guest….

    Verses From The Remnants Of Broken Chains,
    Series Conclusion


    **********


    Soft Cries From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

    I 've broken the deep silence that is profound
    Slept amidst low cracklings of dying leaves
    Lent my heart, sold it pennies on the pound
    But, tis agony of your loss that grieves.

    R.J. Lindley , Nov. 24th 1981
    Quatrain


    *****

    Mere Shreds From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

    You begged to rest on this rocky ground
    Lying just beneath that cold chamber door
    Midnight pains hardly made a frantic sound
    Yet pride lost whilst making pitiful score.

    R.J. Lindley , Nov. 26th 1981
    Quatrain


    *****

    Voided From The Remnants Of Broken Chains


    You limp on your bitter, frost-bitten foot
    And I, my dying soul cry all the more
    There in that love-torn basket love was put
    You left seeking gems on another shore.

    R.J. Lindley , Nov. 27th 1981
    Quatrain


    *****


    Whispers From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

    In fresh twilight, loving whispers float free
    Life echoed young call to remember love
    Hope rested under its usual shade tree
    Massive cold raindrops fell from far above.

    R.J. Lindley , Dec 2nd 1981
    Quatrain


    *****


    Waking From The Remnants Of Broken Chains

    There waits truth, far beyond the shoreless sea
    Waves lashing and bright bold thunder crashing
    In world, where life was a magical tree
    With all the lakes and mighty fish splashing.

    R.J. Lindley , Dec 9th 1981

    Once I Thought This Of Magic Poetry

    Once I thought this of magic poetry
    All was there as a most wonderful sea
    So foolish, that was me forgetting this
    Tis not that simple to enjoy such bliss
    For great verses are born by ink and pen
    Alas! These must come from souls of mere men
    Mortals that are of weaken flesh and blood
    Some that live, to drag others through the mud!

    Once I thought life wonderful poetry
    Forever a treasure and part of me
    So foolish, such as that so naively think
    And in that sweet dream, forget to ever blink!

    But this world is dark and full of hard knocks.
    Although sad blues reign, poetry still rocks!

    One Whose Devilish Heart Comes From The Fridge.

    Why did I write, " I do truly love her"
    Carve love lost hope into innocent bark
    She that had called me a surly cur
    An insult that left a deep hidden mark.

    What folly, a black curse that never ends.
    O the sheer agony of, "lets' be friends".

    This love-storm, its endless revolutions
    Far worse than a tempest and a hanging
    From dark depths of mankind's evolution
    The hard invisible blows still clanging.

    What folly, a black curse that never ends.
    O the sheer agony of, "lets' be friends".

    Insanity- to love so futilely
    Live in past dreams - under a falling bridge
    Follow along, so damn dutifully
    One whose devilish heart comes from the fridge.

    What folly, a black curse that never ends.
    O the sheer agony of, "lets' be friends".
