I don't need a hundred scented candles burning,
for I can see your eyes in one single flames glow.
I don't need to read anymore poetry ...
for your rhymes of me ... told me all I ever need to know.

No longer do I need love songs ...
no need for the lyric or melody.
For the first time I heard your voice,
I heard angels sing and knew inner harmony.

I've no need for orange glow sunsets ...
no need for twilight skies streaked in violet hues.
No need for azure linen clouds of lace ...
all these things pale next to my need for you.

No longer do I wish on silvered diamond falling stars,
nor do I gaze at the neon moon so blue.
I don't search the indigo midnight sky ...
hoping to catch a glimpse of you.

I don't feel you in the rain's shimmering mist,
nor in the sun's golden fingers that bronze my skin.
None of nature's beauty can compare ...
to the place where I keep you deep with in.

You are the crystalline oceans that rise up inside of me,
together we lie on my soul's white beaches of sand.
You are the ivory tides that pull at my beings gravity,
the moment I touched infinite ... was the moment you touched my hand.

No longer do I need the things that mortal love brings ...
for I found completion when I saw my own reflection in your eyes.
And all the contentment I will ever need or hope to dream ...
will be found where you lie inside of me ... and on the wings of butterflies.


Janet Marie

for DeVante' ... my beautiful butterfly
~Butterflies Are Meant To Be Free~



There are places inside our souls -
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts -
that need to be loved this much.

Oh my sweet friend, I do so love it when you write for your deVante.  The love shared between the two of you will never grow dim as it grows in the fertile soils of the heavens and will forever light up the night time sky.  

This is so lovely my friend and YOU do KNOW that I KNOW...hugs to you my dearest friend and please never quit writing wtih the golden feathered quill.  It serves you well.

JM,
Few if any get to fly
And I do not know the why.
But you my friend have flown the abyss
On the smallest touch and a kiss.
You fly the sky on etheral wave
The eternity of the brave.
Your fan and friend. Sy
Winliewinkie.

JanetMarie~
Within the chrysalis of DeVante ...
you've tenderly encased the loving memories.

You are at your finest when he emerges
and flits around ~
landing on your blossoming thoughts.

I don't need to read anymore poetry ...
for your rhymes of me ... told me all I ever need to know.


sis that one line hits me hard and it says it all, his poems for you were so special, so love filled and heartwrencing,
and knowing how you eat live and breathe poetry as you do, for you to write that line,
it really touched me.

Jan this is one of the most beautiful poems i have ever read and i hope you know im not saying this cuz your my sister,
or cause im over here at your house on your computer haha
for-real, this is one of your best of him.
i live for the day someone prints all your poems of him so i can have them all together in a collection.


the moment I touched infinite ... was the moment you touched my hand.

No longer do I need the things that mortal love brings ...
for I found completion when I saw my own reflection in your eyes.
And all the contentment I will ever need or hope to dream ...
will be found where you lie inside of me ... and on the wings of butterflies.

those lines are so full of devante that its like hes here in the room
i think its gonna be a cry-sunday,
turn on the stereo and get out the kleenex
love you big seeeeestur

and no you cant have your computer back yet im just getting started, go cook me some lunch haha

my sister is the poet
I am but a shadow.
by the light of poetry
I read then dream

~Sweet Janet Marie,...I'm shaken by the beauty and power of your words, I always am. I read you more than you know,...always do,...your poems are so amazing, I'm almost intimidated from replying to their strength. You have both reached and moved me with your work. Take care and thank you for sharing yourself here. *Peace.
