Original Works by deepe


Here are a few of my ORIGINAL poems to peruse....

okay, so Rudyard Kipling, i'm Not!
I hope you enjoy them

DISCLAIMER: I wrote these a long time ago, when I was not the happy happy guy that I am today. I tend to think of the days when I wrote these, as "The Time of the Great Stupidity". Nonetheless, they may relate to someone out there somehow.



This is the latest one I have written, and on my birthday, 11-07-97, I am adding it to this page.... I hope you like it.

I Just Wanted You to Know

by dp (deepe)

I lie in bed, alone, awake

most every night I do...

It matters not the day's events

my thoughts are all of you.

....................

It's not a conscious effort

nor a thing I try to do...

but, even when I drift off to sleep

my dreams are of you , too.

...................

There is only so much love around

for each, I know it's true

and even though it's not returned

my love, is there with you.

....................

I think it's an unselfish love

I give, and even though

I ask for nothing in return

I Just Wanted You to Know....



(I wrote this while it was monsooning at the lake, and I was in my camping van!)

Rainy Day Ramblings

by dp (deepe)

Rain, Rain, go away,

You make it yucky, cold, and gray
But when i try to think of you as mean
I look around at all the green
And suddenly I'm filled with wonder
I can take the light and thunder
I think of all the life you give
To creatures too numerous to speak
And all in all, I'd love the rain
If my ceiling didnt leak.

Written while fishing alone at night

Nite Time Fishin'

Well, it's now 4 a.m.
and the wind is a'blowin'
Am I catchin' lots of fish???
well, not so's you'd know it.
**
No, I haven't caught any
but I hope I will soon
Cuz I foolishly stated
That I'd be home by noon!
**
Only 8 hours to go
to fill out my stringer
Cuz you don't WANT to know
what I'll get if I linger
**
For that famous "last cast"
(you know, just one more)
That always turns out
to be at LEAST four.
**
But, it ain't the catchin'
that I go fishin' for
It's more just the chance
to enjoy the outdoors.
**
Hear the wind in the night
and the waves hit the shore
and the sounds of night creatures
Nothing less, nothing more.
**
So, why do I call myself "fisherman"
(with such obvious pride?)
Cuz it sounds more grown up than

"Can I go play outside??"



And another, about being needed....

NEEDED

by dp (deepe)

Being needed, that's the thing;

that makes the soul or spirit sing.
and fills the heart with so much laughter,
and isn't that what we're all after?

This is my newest one.... It is written during a point in time, when I was more than a little down. I am sure that it will apply to just about anyone that reads it, at some time or another in their life. read on..................

Alone, in Thought

by dp (deepe)

All alone, in thought, I sit

and then I start to cry
I know it's not a manly thing
this moisture in my eyes
......................................
I think of all the love Ive lost
and what Ive tossed away
And how I cannot get it back,
no matter what I say...
......................................
In time I will not stand a chance,
(for she will find some other)
and we will never have romance
or live with one another
......................................
If I could just turn back the clock,
a year or maybe two
I would NEVER lose that love again
that love, I had , with you..
......................................
But I will never stop the fight,
(to win you back ), or quit.
I dream of how it once had been,
as All Alone, in Thought, I sit.

......................................


This is another one I wrote about the IRC (sea), once upon a time.....hope ya like it....

THE I R "SEA"

by dp (deepe)

I was adrift upon this "sea",

so lost and all alone.
But when it looked like all was lost,
A brilliant light was shone.
--------------------------
It was a guiding light for me,
it helped me find my way.
That brilliant light, (upon the "sea"),
got brighter every day.
--------------------------
But now, alas, the light has gone,
and shines no more for me.
And once again, i am adrift
Upon this I R "sea"
--------------------------
But wait, the light, it is not gone,
It shines a different way
And guides another close to shore,
with every passing day.
--------------------------
*I* cannot have the light again,
My days of sight are through
This light that brought me so much joy?
My dear, that light was you.
----------------------------------------


One about what happens, or CAN happen without trust....This one is a personal favorite of mine because it is so simple, yet so so true......... read on.......

THE FLAME

by dp (deepe)

Do not let the flame of love...

Become the flame of doubt.
For if the latter starts to spread...
The former will go out.
.. . . . . .. . . . . .. . . . . .. . . . . .. . . . . .. . . . . .. . . . ..

(Un-named)

by dp (deepe)

To have been loved, and lost,

Is a terrible thing
And will pain you right down to the core.
But the pain you would feel
If you had NEVER been loved
I am certain would be much much more.


Heavy Eyes

by dp (deepe)

My eyes are heavy,(lack of sleep)

From too much on my mind.
And tho' I try hard not to weep
My pillow, the tears still find.
.................
Then slowly, my thoughts start to blur
And I drift off to sleep,
Where the two of us can be as one
With rendezvous to keep
.................
Asleep at last, my chance to dream
Of how our lives could be
I dream of all the love I have
for her, and she for me.
................
But all too soon I hear that sound,
(the clock)That screams "ARISE"
Another day, filled with hope,
With sleepless, heavy, eyes.


Have you ever had a woman's love?

by dp (deepe)

Have you ever had a woman's love

that swept you off your feet?
A woman oh-so wonderful
she made your life complete?
A woman with a gorgeous smile
and lips that taste so sweet?
A woman you would search a lifetime
for, in hopes to meet?
A woman with such sparkling eyes
the twinkling stars compete?
(And tho' the stars shine just like jewels,
her eyes they'll NEVER beat!)
A woman (who to wake beside)
would make each day a joy to greet?
Have you ever had a love like that?
Well, "I Have" (ain't that neat??
