A Poem I Wrote For Matt's B-Day '07

The touch from the breath of love

Allures my thoughts and begins to dance

Shooting stars and cascading petals

Creates in my mind a long lasting romance


Kisses from lips of which adoration begins

Caressing my devotion’s deepening bliss

Entrancing me with whispering lullabies

And time’s pure essence that never forgets


Sing to my heart, oh love of my life

With melodies that entangles my anticipation

Passionately weaving lyrics in sync with mine

Captivating forever’s soft twinkle in motion


My hand is yours to forever hold

Enrapturing my heart to collide with joy

I’m giving you my life to compose

The great symphony as girl and boy




I am standing next to the burning fire

Feeling the heat of defeated recollections

Finally ready to unleash the broken flames

That has bruised my shattered heart

I am willing to burn my memories to life

Flickering my tears to an unstable plateau

Concentrating on the wick of destruction

That forces my soul to subside inevitably

I want to play each broken record

As the blaze begins to shine hysterically

Watching every moment on a blank screen

Until every tear tied to my heart is felt passionately

It is easier to pretend that nothing has happened

With the past disappearing into a false sense of reality

Just as is it was dancing into an erratic inferno

Creating it hard to breathe without the oxygen it requires

But I believe that I have created enough strength

To conquer all of the giants that stand in my way

And I believe that I have enough courage

To face all the demons that dance behind my solitude

I am finally able to aim and fire

Targeting the center of the heavy weights

That push my containable spirit down

Down in to the shadows of begotten happenings

I yearn to fall on my knees in prayer

While reality presently becomes the truth

And crashes into the firestorm’s center

Overwhelming me with emotions ignored

I will stand and fight the urge to tremble

I will walk and overcome this hell hole

And I will be set free…



Below is a sample of what I am currently blasting in my house
right now! :o) Enjoy!! Please ignore any of the videos if there
is any hoochie-mama-ness happening.

Rain Drops

I am so enjoying this RAIN!!!!! Right now the rain is inspiring me to totally blast music that I'm getting so lost in and dancing when I feel inspired too. I feel so free and can totally just be artistic when I have nights like this. Especially when there is no one around. I just wish that I could actually dance beautifully. Nights like this create a fire in me to write poems by the candlelight while listening to: emotional lyrics, beautiful symphonies, the rain glistening the skies. I have had writers block for a couple of years. I've had some ideas for some but I never sit down and finish them. At the end of this post I will copy one, maybe two, that I wrote awhile ago.....just for my few readers who actually read my blog. :o)

Today I met an old high school friend, Anya, to do her make-up for her family's semi-formal party. She wanted to be a little bit more dolled-up and glamorized. I didn't bring my camera to take pictures, I should have, but I didn't want to make her feel uncomfortable. But Anya looked absolutely gorgeous!!! It was so nice to see her. She has the cutest home and the most precious little family. One thing that I remember most about her was her gentle and kind spirit. And today her wonderful attributes shone through as if they have only grown. Thank you Anya for a lovely rainy afternoon!

A Poem by Me, Jodi Newton, for your reading enjoyment (hopefully :p ):

Another tear drops behind my memory

Spinning into the core inside my heart

The tear is obscured by passion from hopes

Swept across my dreams like a silent whisper

Dancing around the depths of my soul

Where secrets before were never discovered

Taking deep breaths toward the star light

Uncovering my despair from grieving my love

That disappeared into the false hopes of my affection

Feeling forsaken I gently close my eyes

Tears begin to drench my sun-kissed cheeks

And the pain is too hard to endure

Memories float around the rose’s heart

Challenging the petals to unfold

The thorns are hidden from my tear’s anguish

Not recognizing the blood that drips from my suffering

The sensation of absence is throbbing

And controlling my weakness to relinquish

Without faith I slowly open my eyes

Returning to the hopes that I dare to dream
