Poetry - Tempted

Battling these feelings,
can't sort one from another,
hah, yeah, singing
'tempted by a fruit of another..-'

Well, what if that fruit is
a friend of a former lover?

My feelings can't help themselves,
I'm not about to lock them away,
hide them high up on on shelves.

I'm going to dig right in, have a dish
you turn me on, a couple more licks..
I love to kiss you, love that risk-
hold me close, i'll shudder in fright,
how could something so wrong just
feel so right?

Lick my lip again,
baby, take a bite.
Let's forget all else,
isn't that a beautiful sight?

A small collection of a few of my poems, some old, some new..

Solo Dance
I write these words to be remembered,
capture these feelings, my heart being rendered.

Sort and label these feelings,
Can't classify these dirty dealings.
Feel my yearn, joy in warm embrace,
see the pain hiding in my face.

Love can exsist solely in one's mind,
a solo dance, tango of a lonely kind.

I can't control your mind,
prevent you from going astray,
can't be on bended knee,
begging you to stay.

In the end it simply doesn't equate,
you're on your own and it's not my fate.

It's always been my story to tell,
of unwanted attention from all sorts,
but, oh hell!
Once I feel that lightning strike of fate,
Oh look, I've found the perfect mate!
That feeling soon turns to hate.

I can't strike that spark and
capture your interest,
in my head I'm not unique enough,
the feelings won't rest.

Change is what I end to crave, and
my quest won't end until I find my one,
or the change will conquer me, and
send me to my early grave.


Throw out that dirty feeling!
It's raw and old, it's
getting all over everything
else and it's all rotting

Get up, and throw it away,
Why should I say it again?

Take it away-you gave it,
so it should be just as easy
to take back.

It's long past it's expiration date, Honey.

Stars shine,
velvet moon sky,

love sings,
magic in your eye.

Stars are falling


Always there for me, my prince,
and you know I'm yours,
your princess to crown.

Place your hand upon my cheek,
look into my eyes, hear the words
that I speak:

"I'll give myself willingly to you, my love,
protect and care for me, treat
me as fragilly as a dove."

Your eyes narrow,
focusing clear and true,
filling with promise, strength,
shining such a strong blue.

"If ever there be doubt to how I covet
you, my queen,
just know that without you,
the world holds all too much that
can't be seen..

The stars would fade,
and will not shine,
simply as brilliantly as they do
when you are mine."

Your hand on my cheek, softly rubbing,
these tender moments shared, true loving.

I grab you, whisper into your ear,
"You know, I love you?"

You reply, "The whole world
could be a lie, but that
will always remain true."

Peterson's Children to Testify at Grand Jury

Two of Drew Peterson's children from his marriage to Kathleen Savio have been subpoenaed to testify in front of the grand jury investigating his possible involvement in her death and the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacey Peterson, ABC News has learned.

The two boys, Tom, 15, and Christopher, 13, were served with subpoenas Wednesday and were granted immunity in return for their testimony. They are currently living with their father.

A coroner's inquest had previously ruled the 2004 death of Savio, Peterson's third wife, an accident, but an autopsy report last week determined that Savio was killed in her Bolingbrook, Ill., home, a few weeks before her divorce from Peterson was complete.

Peterson, a former Bolingbrook police officer, has not been named as a suspect in Savio's death, but he is considered a suspect in Stacey Peterson's disappearance. Authorities reexamined Savio's death after Stacey Peterson disappeared in November.

Drew Peterson has denied any wrongdoing in both cases.

For years, Savio's relatives have suspected Peterson of being involved in her death, telling the 2004 coroner's inquest that Savio was terrified of her former husband, whom they said threatened her and hit her.

"We've been waiting for this," Savio's sister, Anna Doman, told ABC News. "We didn't think it would ever happen."

Now, in an exclusive interview with ABC News Senior Law & Justice correspondent Jim Avila, a juror on the coroner's inquest that initially determined Savio's death was an accident says he wishes he had listened to her family.

"If we would have come back with murder instead, maybe Stacey Peterson would still be here today," Jim Pretto told ABC News. "There is a little bit of guilt that because of that, maybe somebody else was murdered because of that. That maybe could have been stopped."

Savio was found facedown in the empty bathtub of her home on March 1, 2004, a few weeks before the property settlement from her divorce from Peterson was scheduled to be finalized. She had a one-inch gash on the back of her head.

An autopsy at the time of Savio's death found that she had drowned and speculated that she may have slipped and hit her head on the tub. A state police officer testified at the inquest that there was no evidence that Savio had been murdered.

Pretto faulted investigators for failing to present enough evidence at the inquest and said that if he had known all the facts about the case in 2004, he would have called Savio's death a homicide.

"There was no evidence at all to point toward it being a murder," Pretto said. "There was nothing presented at all."
