A Poem Of The Wonder Of These Beings | Sacred Dreams #Poetry


Good morning /afternoon everyone! I apologize to those who wasn’t able to view the poem in the WordPress reader and/or on the reader website yesterday.

It seems like it was only able to be viewed when on the WordPress site or clicking on the link to view in webpage. My apologies. So, I decided to just repost it but without embedding the Facebook link I got it from, and delete the one from yesterday.


Below is a poem from Sacred Dreams’ Facebook written by Cyrielle Soares. While pondering what I was going to do about my Facebook personal and writer’s pages, I came across this poem someone shared in a Twin Flames’ group I’m in and checked out the original post for the poem. It’s beautiful and speaks to the heart and soul. It really makes you think about certain types of beings that have come into your life over the years.

From Sacred Dreams

There are beings that satisfy you.
No not from their presence,
But of their simple existence.
There are people who sleep with you, never touch your sheets.
Just by their thoughts that accompany you.
There are some wonderful men.
Enchanting women.
Absolute beings.
There are people whose ease of penetrating you is magic.
They type your dreams like we would compose a piano melody.
They write words straight out of another world.
As if the world of the living does not have access to these magnificent words.
They perfume your tears of sense and forgiveness.
They inhabit your floors, your attics, your cellars and your attics, and illuminate them in the light of their hearts.
They travel under your skin making chills and bursts.
They rock your cravings like mornings that wake up slowly.
There are people who thrive with life.
Who draw words about minds.
Who soothe all evil.
Of those who heal, feel and pet.
Of those who upset our fragile balance.
Because they are free.
Because they love without waiting.
Because they are rare.
Magic or terrifying.
Like labyrinths where we get lost irreparably.
Where we are not looking for the exit.
Where certainties always fly in blast.
Where the abyss fixes our damaged sides.
These beings devoid of expectations that offer their absence like a tomb that we bloom from our imaginary sorrows.
They are beautiful.
Alive and dead.
They are forever.
In the form of friends, love or soulmate.
Call them what you want.
They line our lives with balms and honey.
I know that.
I’ve lived it.~

#MusicMonday- My Writing Love Playlist

    Edited by: Pamela Hester

    I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. How are you today? Today for #MusicMonday, I am doing something a bit different. I would like to share with you a playlist I created called Writing Love. Sometimes when I am writing certain scenes, music plays its part in helping me to write them, and when it comes to the characters. It builds the mood for me as well. I am still putting together the playlist, but would still like to share the fifteen I currently have.

    Majority of these songs I have listened to while writing and editing the Secrets series novels. I won’t go in-depth about it in this post, but I’ll save it for another time. I believe songs can take a person to that level that they may have never been to before. And to a level that they may not have been to in a while.

    Also, the majority of these songs are based on my characters on how they feel about certain things, people, and themselves. The songs also tell its own story. They can be based on what my characters are going through as well.

    I truly believe that when you write, especially with fiction, you have to feel how the characters are feeling. Understand their thoughts, and so on. I can go on and on about music and writing- two of my favorite things- but it will take several days. Lol.

    To view all the songs, you can click the horizontal lines where it says, 1/15.

    Baby don’t worry, I’ve got plans for you

    Baby, I’ve been making plans for you
    Baby, I’ve been making plans
    Baby, I’ve been making plans for you”


    15) Beyonce- Crazy In Love (remix)

    “I look and stare so deep in your eyes
    I touch on you more and more every time
    When you leave, I’m begging you not to go
    Call your name two, three times in a row
    Such a funny thing for me to try to explain
    How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame
    ‘Cause I know I don’t understand
    Just how your love can do what no one else can”

    Does songs play a part when it comes to your writing? Which ones?

    #MusicMonday- Break Of Dawn #lovesongs


    Photo by: pixabay.com Edited by: Pamela Hester

    There have been too many times to count of myself laying back listening to music flowing through my headphones or earbuds over the years. It makes me feel like I have entered another dimension and there have been times when it took me back to that moment I first heard it.

    The majority of those songs are like an aphrodisiac that’ll have you in a hypnotic trance well past after it is over. Those songs along with the ones with the lyrics that are so beautiful and sensual, and tells a story where you can visualize them in your mind so vividly.

    This song, Break of Dawn, is one of those songs by Michael Jackson that I love intensely. It is a sexy and, oh…so, oh! It is about making love until it’s daylight. (Need I say more?) It would be nice to experience that, right, with the one who loves you? 😛

    Well, with making love and all that jazz aside, I hope you all enjoy the song and its lyrics. Let us know in the comments what you think, if you want to that is.

    LYRICS:

    [Verse 1]
    Hold my hand, feel the touch of your body cling to mine
    You and me, making love all the way through another night
    I remember you and I walking through the park at night
    Kiss and touch, nothing much, let it blow just touch and go
    Love me more, never leave me alone by house of love
    People talk, people say what we have is just a game
    Oh, I’ll never let you go, come here girl
    Just got to make sweet love ‘til the break of dawn

    [Chorus]
    I don’t want the sun to shine I want to make love
    Just this magic in your eyes and in my heart
    I don’t know what I’m going to do – I can’t stop loving you
    I won’t stop ‘til break of dawn making love

    [Verse 2]
    Hold my hand, feel the sweat, yes you’ve got me nervous yet
    Let me groove, let me soothe, let me take you on a cruise
    There’s imagination I bet you’ve never been there before
    Have you ever wanted to dream about those places you’ve never known

    (Break of dawn, break of dawn) there’s no sun up in the sky
    (Break of dawn, break of dawn) I can see it in your eyes
    (Break of dawn, break of dawn) girl you got to understand
    It’s the way that I love you, let me show you I’m your man
    Break of dawn

    [Chorus]
    I don’t want the sun to shine I want to make love
    Just this magic in your eyes and in my heart
    I don’t know what I’m going to do – I can’t stop loving you
    I won’t stop ‘til break of dawn making love
    I don’t want the sun to shine I want to make love
    Just this magic in your eyes and in my heart
    I don’t know what I’m going to do – I can’t stop loving you
    I won’t stop ‘til break of dawn making love

    [Verse 3]
    Let’s not wait, the sun is out, let’s get up and let’s get out
    It’s the day, a brand new day, let’s both go outside and play
    Let us walk down the park, making love ‘til it’s dark
    Let me move, let me soothe, ‘til the break of dawn and you know it’s true, oh

    [Chorus]
    I don’t want the sun to shine I want to make love
    Just this magic in your eyes and in my heart
    I don’t know what I’m going to do – I can’t stop loving you
    I won’t stop ‘til break of dawn making love
    I don’t want the sun to shine I want to make love
    Just this magic in your eyes and in my heart
    I don’t know what I’m going to do – I can’t stop loving you
    I won’t stop ‘til break of dawn making love
    I don’t want the sun to shine I want to make love
    Just this magic in your eyes and in my heart
    I don’t know what I’m going to do – I can’t stop loving you
    I won’t stop ‘til break of dawn making love
    Break it down

    #MusicMonday: Can’t Help Falling In Love #Lovesongs


    Photo by: pixabay.com Edited by: Pamela Hester

    Good morning/afternoon, everyone! Today’s #MusicMonday song is short but an endearing one.

    The song, Can’t Help Falling In Love, by Elvis is a song that I believe I didn’t fall in love with at first. I did like it at first though I heard it when Patrick Wilson sung it while playing a guitar in a horror movie called, The Conjuring 2.

    That was February 2018 and every since then that song literally haunted me. I’ve heard it everywhere for almost the entire year. Weird how that is.

    LYRICS:

    [Verse 1]
    Wise men say only fools rush in
    But I can’t help falling in love with you
    Shall I stay? Would it be a sin?
    If I can’t help falling in love with you

    [Chorus]
    Like a river flows
    Surely to the sea
    Darling, so it goes
    Some things are meant to be

    [Verse 2]
    Take my hand, take my whole life, too
    For I can’t help falling in love with you

    [Chorus]
    Like a river flows
    Surely to the sea
    Darling, so it goes
    Some things are meant to be

    [Outro]
    Take my hand, take my whole life, too
    For I can’t help falling in love with you
    For I can’t help falling in love with you

    #MusicMonday- Cheyenne #lovesongs

    Edited by: Pamela Hester

     

    I chose today’s song because not only because I love the video so much, but because of the reminder on how people would casually break others’ hearts. And they realize it too late what the person had meant to them.

    There are times I remember so vividly when a guy who I thought was interested in me, come to find out he was just playing those stupid games like most will do. Then when I felt like I had enough and distance myself from him, he supposedly figured out he wanted something “real” or serious with me.

    Whatever.

    That happened more than once to me from different people who realized too late what they actually wanted. It is also a shame when we would often give those people a second or third chance just to be screwed over again.  

    The song, Cheyenne, sung by Jason Derulo is about a guy who let a woman get away because he didn’t want anything serious at first. It’s funny in a not so ha-ha way how that works. He realized he had fallen in love with her too late when all he wanted was fun and games because that’s what he was used to doing.

    People have to understand that people’s heart and mind aren’t something to toyed with. People are also not items to be used at someone’s convenience and put up on a shelf or toy chest just to pick back up again. 

    On another note, on a brighter side of things that I took from the video of the guy being in a haunted mansion with this “ghost” girl being seen throughout, is how hauntingly beautiful and creative it was. What is really going on is thoughts of the girl haunting his mind and life. The coolest part is the dance break of him dancing with dead ballerinas. It gave me Michael Jackson’s vibes.

    What are your thoughts on this subject, song, and/or video?

     

     

     

    LYRICS:

    [Verse 1]
    I’m a little unsure how it got so complicated
    If I let go I know, I’ll regret it
    Every heart that I held before, I was sure to break it
    I don’t know what you did, but

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I just can’t stop thinking ’bout you every day
    No, I can’t stop now

    [Chorus]
    Look what we started, baby
    You’re not what I expected
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted was some fun
    Look what we started, baby
    I used to look for exits
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted was some fun

    [Post-Chorus]
    I never meant to fall in love
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove
    I never meant to fall in love
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove

    Cheyenne, got the table set for two, guess you couldn’t make it
    Thought I kissed your lips again, I was dreaming (dreaming)
    I still believe that night we shared was something sacred (yeah)
    I’m tryna clear my head, but

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I just can’t (can’t) stop (stop) thinking ’bout you every day
    No, I can’t (can’t) stop now

    [Chorus]
    Look what we started, baby
    You’re not what I expected
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted was some fun (Cheyenne)
    Look what we started, baby (started, baby)
    I used to look for exits
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted was some fun

    [Post-Chorus]
    I never meant to fall in love
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove
    I never meant to fall in love
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove

    [Bridge]
    Cheyenne, Cheyenne
    Cheyenne, Cheyenne

    [Pre-Chorus]
    No, I can’t stop thinking ’bout you every day
    No, I can’t stop now

    [Chorus]
    Look what we started, baby (oh, oh, baby)
    You’re not what I expected (woo)
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted was some fun (huh, woo)
    Look what we started, baby (started, baby)
    I used to look for exits (you, yeah)
    ‘Cause all I ever wanted was some fun (oh, oh)

    [Post-Chorus]
    I never meant to fall in love (Cheyenne)
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove
    I never meant to fall in love (Cheyenne)
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove
    I never meant to fall in love (Cheyenne)
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove
    I never meant to fall in love (Cheyenne)
    I never meant to fall in lo-ove

    [Outro]
    Cheyenne
