Look at You

Look at You


She will look at you with utter amazement,

watching as you speak to others.

Then as you walk across the room to sit with her,

she will listen to all you have to say.

She will respect you and your love for her will grow

as she stands by your side with a

proud sparkle in her eye.

Laugh and be silly with her and she will love you more.

Be true and faithful and she will love you forever.

She will take care of you, tell the world

how great you are and she will do all she can

to make you feel like a king.

Her commitment to you is true and pure.

All she wants is for you to look at her the same,

each and every time

And for love to work its magic

You will always be mine.

~~ J. Lefever ~~

I wrote this piece about ten years ago… I came across it the other day… I can see, even then, I loved to love. I’ve always had a lot of love in my heart… to give… and hope to receive. The interesting part is how much my writing has changed in ten years. My writing has grown just as I have…

Frozen Wishes

A Poetic Duet written with my darling Shruti of Passionwriting, who is just that, a lovely & passionate writer who puts her heart into her words!
‘Frozen Wishes’
Like the cherries on the tree
Outside, is as cold as your heart
Yet you come knocking on my door
Unwillingly, I flung at the door
Only to let you in
Aware that you can slice it through
And leave me bleeding black and blue
Despite this truth
I always come to you
Unwilling to admit, your love
Still pulls at me, I am weak next to you
The desire to be with you
Is stronger than ever before
I am unable to resist the hold
You have on my heart and me…
How long will you keep teasing
The chords of my heart
Realize it’s meant to be
We should never be apart
I always believed in dreams
I hoped to find the prince
Can you give wings to my hope?
Can you make my heart whole?
I have looked to you
In so many times of needing
This love can be, for you, for me
An angelic answer to our prayers
We would unite with time
In your arms, I will find my world
We will walk down the aisle
And hope to be the embodiment of love
Like the ice on the streets, I sat
Snapped back to reality, as I
Watched these events all take place
In my dreaming, hopeful, wishing mind.

The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice


 The turquoise of the sea

Was deep in your eyes

As you stare penetrated me

It was almost painful to look away


I felt as though

You could see right through

As if you knew

The secrets I’ve hidden from you


Your eyes asking me questions

My gaze melted to the floor

My body language was weak

Pleading for you to look no more


A handful of shame, yes

My heart had acted on its own

I betrayed you, yes

But weren’t we already torn


Keep looking deep

Into my Chocolate brown eyes

You will see that I

Can not continue to lie


The layers of black satin

Cover us when we sleep

Like the darkness of our words

 Like promises that were cheap


Yesterdays dreams laced with

Tomorrows wishes, and

You still holding me, with

Our toes in the sand


Take my hand


It was never you

That was supposed to be by my side

I tried to tell you

You never heard a single word


Now that deceit has made

An example of me

Looking at you

I know where I’m not supposed to be


~~ J. Lefever ~~



 This is a piece on love of the wrong kind. Of a woman who didn’t listen to her heart. She followed her lust and found what really fit, and betrayed the one she was promised to. This is a piece on betrayal, broken promises, and mostly to ones self, the one who was hurt the most, is the one who sacrificed her love for someone else…

Daily Reflection on Tryst (01/31/13)

 Get Connected


Happy Mid-day Tryst family!! Due to a morning full of running around and making my appointments, I am greeting you with a mid-day reflection! Lately the buzz in my ear has had a common theme. My sweet friends are sharing a need and desire for sweet harmony and loving connection with others. The need for love seems to be in the air! It is a new year, we are all trying to move forward and start fresh, and with that comes some changes. We are trying to find motivation in reaching a goal or going after a dream, we are seeking inspiration to do new things and nourish our creativity, and we are falling in love with the idea that a new love or new friendship sounds really good right now! We are craving some good connection with other’s!

 Having chemistry with someone, either a friend or a significant other, is such an awesome thing! Chemistry works all on its own. We can’t fake or force it. Our hearts and our spirits tell us with whom we are connecting with, and sends signals to our minds and hearts saying, ‘Oh yes, we are really loving and enjoying this person! So glad we have found them and are making memories with them! Thank you world!!’ … We just know, from deep inside, when we have made the connection with another!

 I want you to know that you, each one of you, are a beautiful asset to the universe! This world needs you! Breaking it down more, the people in your family, at your job, and in your circle of friends need you! For those of us in a relationship or marriage, our hubby’s and wives needs us too. You play an important part in the lives of those around you. So take a minute to tell yourself how important you are to those people! Sometimes, even when you don’t know it, you have made a difference in someone’s life, just by being you! By holding open a door, or smiling at someone on the street… you never know what you may have done for another! YOU ARE an ASSET to the UNIVERSE!!

 We are connected to each other. We are connected to this world. We can’t share beauty without each other! remember what I said about Karma? Today, see what connections you make with others. Notice who reaches out to connect with you. If you are single, celebrate yourself someway today by doing something you love or treating yourself to something fantastic! If you are spoken for and share your life with another, put aside the stresses of everyday life, and find a way to connect with your lover! And for all of us friends out there, do you have a friend that needs you? Do you have a friend that you need?


How can we connect with our heart’s favorite peeps today? What can you do to let someone special in your life know that they have you?


Have a beautiful day! ~ Jen
