    Give Me Love Are Give Me Death
    By Jacqueline Amos



    Give me love are give me death,
    I shall no longer live,
    within the means of destruction,
    that proclaim to be love,
    I sit upon the dreary nights,
    trying to understand this misery called love,
    I shall no longer feel the hunger of love.


    I shall die before I give into the hypocrisy of pain.
    I give to thee the softness of thy heart,
    I give to thee the sacred grounds of my temple,
    accepting the laughter masqueraded as love.
    There shall be no dismay,
    in the pretense of forbidden love,
    I shall rise above the night.


    Give me love are give me death.
    The songs of love shall no longer be faded,
    within the songs of death,
    illusions of a want to be love.
    I have given my treasures of jewels,
    As I lay upon the night hopeless an confuse.

    The word love, must now have a meaning,
    without confusion,
    I shall closed the chapter of dismay,
    I shall no longer settle for heart ache and pain.
    The sounds of the winds no longer sing. T
    he roses no longer stand with strength,
    the sun only brings clouds dark an dreary.

    The waters cry there own song.
    I shall no longer live in darkness.

    Give me love are give me death,
    beyond the words of captivity,
    will not be my victim song,
    I cry rebirth give me love.
    Embrace thee for the scars are to deep,
    embrace thee the splendors ,
    are blister within my realms,
    embrace thee I bare children of your seed,
    the curse shall not live on.

    Give me life are give me death.

    God Is Love

    Thank you very much. It is a blessing to be in this forum, the spirit is strong. Its a village of the inner spirit of wisdom. We must go into the village of darkness and bring light. One God, One Love, One Peace, One Spirit.
