To Live the Life

 

Viva La Vida means to live the life

how many times a picture of you

has flashed into my sights.

 

Today I thought I had, had it all.

Was I just dreaming

because I was thinking about you.

You see the vision I had of you

wouldn't leave my mind.

 

How much I wanted to embrace you

and say I love you so much.

Oh Joyce why did you have to leave me.

You looked so good in a bathing suit.

 

When we had sex I felt the Earth move

and saw the stars twinkle and shine on us.

 

But we now live in a different world.

You found a man and moved on

having a daughter with him.

You named her Victoria Makela.

 

Oh how I thought you were living in sin

leaving me behind like you did.

I have found someone new and I just

wanted you to know this.

 

Her name is Elizabeth

and God gave me a vision of her.

She looked like a shorter version

of the Holy Ghost the Sacred Spirit Sophia.

 

Viva La Vida baby

to live the life

is all I want to do.

 

Joyce I just want you to know

there will always be a place in my heart

because I do still love you

somewhere in my soul.

 

You see Joyce you touchd my heart

but we both have moved on.

 

I will be happy when I unite with Elizabeth

but that won't be until after Christ returns.

 

Viva La Vida baby, to live the life

is all I want to do

with my Elizabeth.

 

I can't wait till the day you say I do

for God has shown me this in a vision

and what comes from up above is meant to be

so I know I will love you so.

 

You see your beauty is that of the Goddess Venus

and I will worship you and the ground you walk on.

 

I can't wait for this moment to happen.

I have lived my whole existence

for this moment to happen.

I will kiss you on the lips

to seal our union.

 

I watch you take your wedding dress off.

I see a white light shine

around your whole body as we make love.

 

Viva La vida baby, to life the life

with you is all I want to do.

Don't you know Elizabeth I love you

with every ounce of my heart and soul.

Hi Victor,

 

I'm sorry I missed this one yesterday, when I was making my comments. I like your candidness with Joyce --

Oh how I thought you were living in sin

leaving me behind like you did.

I have found someone new and I just

wanted you to know this.

 

Her name is Elizabeth

and God gave me a vision of her

-- and I like how, halfway through the poem, after telling Joyce about Elizabeth, you stop talking the talk and start walking the walk: you forget all about Joyce, and start writing directly to Elizabeth. Very effective technique.

And you did right Vic with bumping this poem at the top, because its really good poem and also is so autobiographical poem.

I like how you played with both names Joyce and Elizabeth. And its so deep when you say:

I will be happy when I unite with Elizabeth

but that won't be until after Christ returns.

It shows the irony in a wish , irony of life. But then you stand stronger on your wish and you shows a big hope, and clear imagery, it feels some light inside.

Viva La vida baby, to life the life

with you is all I want to do.

Don't you know Elizabeth I love you

with every ounce of my heart and soul.
