I’m Jealous- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

I’m jealous of the light that sees you every day

I’m jealous of the night which holds you to daybreak

I’m jealous of the world you live in without me

I’m jealous of the wind that blows a kiss upon your face

I’m jealous of your clothes that touch and hug your curves

I’m jealous of the men you lead on and give your smile to

I’m jealous of your youth the mistakes you’ve yet to make

I’m jealous of the time you have for anyone but me

I’m jealous no fault of yours I a man you’ve never seen

When Did You Decide- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

When did you decide

No one on one with him

The day before or after

You said you couldn’t wait

When did you decide

To mess up bad his mind

The day before or after

You said you never would

When did you decide

You’d made a big mistake

The day before or after

He said he understood

When did you decide

You didn’t need to cry

The day before or after

He wiped away your tears

When did you decide

You’d always love him

The day before or after

He said ‘I love you’

Not A Day- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

You may not want to read this

You may feel I don’t deserve you

You may wish you didn’t know me

Maybe you’ve given up on me

I may have got it wrong

In so many ways that’s me

 I may have got you wrong

 In what you need of me

 There’s not a day you’re not with me

There’s not a day I’ll not smile

There will never be a day

I’ll not wonder how you are

Parting-Michael Erickson, Guest Barista

You touched my lips, with a hand of love.

I felt your heart quicken as we stepped as one.

Now you speak of parting our ways. You gave me back my heart, and closed the door.

Now all I can think is how your body lay next to mine, so tender and pure.

You laid me down, down deep to my core.

And now it must be, as a ragged hole torn.

For I shall never again be whole.

-M.E. Inkowl

He Had True- Eric (EDC Writing), Guest Barista

Easing back now had his day

Easy said just not his way

Decades spent in hope not hate

Emotions ignored no love relates

He falls every now and then

A like mind curved with legs

Goes well a while until she feels

Too sweet too deep so very still

All but one had not a clue

Just what it was he had true

An artist’s touch a poets lips

A heart that gave a mind that flew

Ideas in Perspective–Eugenia, Guest Barista

87116-Beautiful-Sunrise

Undoubtedly, a powerful way to teach

Creativity in its truest form

Information extending its reach

Fractals in motion, ideas being born

What better way to be selective

Storyteller purveyors are most effective

By bringing learning in perspective

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”― Helen Keller
