Ode to an Orgasmic Odyssey

An orgasmic odyssey
From bullets fired one fateful day
To stepping from behind his tree.

O is our observant vigil
as they try to find their way
Obstacles and solid walls
Separate them every day.

O is life's obstructions
They must valiantly overcome
To find the peace they long for
Amid the chaos he comes from.

O is the oasis
Their thirsting love provides
Their devotion ever steady
Never ebbing with the tides.

O is their omnipresent need
Flooding them with desire
No matter the danger, the ordeal
He flames her with his fire.

O is the heavenly music
That seems to play at every turn
Orchestrated by invisible hands
And making their passion burn.

O is for their spoken oaths
Overwhelming in their depths
That protects them from the onslaught
Of otherworldly threats.

O is for the yet unended opus
Obstacles not yet met
Their future lies within their grasp
With promises not to forget.

O, their road is very twisted
With things they can't prevent
But Max and Liz and the Dreamers
Are all praying for cement.

Oh an occasion of great excitement
Their situation so regressed
And not since Sexual Healing
Have the dreamers been so obsessed.

Our Ode to this so tremendous
Orgasmic Odyssey
We await with every heartbeat
Their hearts finally to fly free.

Optimistic and faithful Devoted and obsessed
We hold our breath For SH to repeat
Please, please, Max and Liz
Time to Orgasmically complete!

Thank you Maggie for taking my clumsy poem and giving it life! So Dreamers this is a collaboration by Maggie and provence!

'There's oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me…'

Night and Day
lyrics by Cole Porter

Day and night, night and day, why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you

Day and night, night and day
Under the hide of me
There's an oh such a hungry yearning burning inside of me
And this torment won't be through
Until you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

I think that could be sung by all of us! Thanks to Doublestuf for posting those song lyrics. We all do have a 'yearning burning inside' for a reunion between Max and Liz. But certainly it's what Max and Liz feel. Just think what it will be like when they finally do reach that moment of understanding, that moment when each one knows the truth of the other and they realize they are free to embrace that yearning deep inside, free to release all the love they have for the other.

It will be so long in coming that we will be breathless from the anticipation - and probably combust ourselves! But not if we lose faith - if we let ourselves forget that what transpires before this point is necessary! If we let ourselves be trapped by disappointment. If we lose our love of and faith in what Max and Liz have -the impact of what [b]will[/b] come - will lose some of it's power and magic!

I particularly like this first one!

Faith is the refusal to panic.~ David Martyn Lloyd-Jones ~
Faith embraces many truths which seem to contradict each other.~ Blaise Pascal ~
A faith that hasn't been tested can't be trusted.~ Adrian Rogers ~
Your faith is what you believe, not what you know.~ John Lancaster Spalding ~
Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith.~ Source Unknown ~

'Desperate for changing, starving for truth'

(Lyrics from Hanging by a Moment by Lifehouse and posted most recently by monkey_girl3001. )

Dreamers are desperate for changing right now. We are starving for the truth as well. Desperate for Max and Liz to find love and happiness instead of pain and suffering! Starving for the moment when Max discovers the truth of why Liz is so adamant in her position that they can only be friends and that he must follow his 'destiny'.

There is some discussion that what FMax asked Liz to do was a selfish act and one that feeling the way they did about each other FMax/Liz should have known to be impossible! But, remember they were desperate to change history because of all the death and destruction in their time line. And more importantly I believe they were guessing that Tess not being around was the reason they were defeated - which means of course they could be wrong! And if not wrong than misguided in their assumption that only by Max recognizing tess as his Destiny could history be changed. I also believe that in their time line because they 'cemented' their relationship so young, they didn't have an opportunity to test and build on their strengths as individuals, ( Liz didn't discover her own powers in the FMAX and FLiz timeline is just one example) nor did they discover the depths of their love and bond! There are many other scenarios that can play out - but it doesn't matter because Max and Liz will always find each other!

No matter who plays with the strands of time in an effort to manipulate the future; not parents not essence not prescribed destiny, not even FMax/FLiz; the fact that Max and Liz are soul mates and will always struggle to be together is a constant in any time line! They will always choose love. Even in this changed time line that is season two - as we all know Max has not stopped loving Liz - but history has changed because FMax did cease to exist!

So again I beg you - keep your faith. Believe! Let's watch this story play out and always view it from the position that Max and Liz are meant to be and will always be. So by all means - question, discuss, theorize! But always use as your basic truth - Max and Liz are two forces of nature that can only function well together - and just as water seeks the sea, Max and Liz will always seek out and find each other. This is the ultimate truth that Max and Liz must learn!

There's nothing else to lose
There's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world
That can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

'Dedicated Dreamers never lose sight of their Dreams.'

It's just as Evid says above - Dreamers Dream. It's what makes us Dreamers! We are romantics and idealists and believe in love and soul mates and happy endings!! We make liberal use of arabella's Dreamer Dust,
suffer from EAS and know that 'cement' isn't just cement anymore! We have Max and Liz moments at least once a day and we listen to every song for possible connections to our Dreamy couple! We haxe and crax and wax poetic! You cannot keep a Dedicated Dreamer Down!

We Dreamers know that Max and Liz will be together! And until TPTB give us what we crave our Cherish artists make use of today's technology to feed our dreams!

And when asked the question by Cult times Will they ever convince us that Liz and Max aren't meant to be together?" just as Tasyfa answered we all answer NOOOOOO!

So let's remember what Evid pointed out from the Liz Mythologists:
Max was right when he said he and Liz were different. Not because of who he was or who she was, but because of who they became together .

This is the symbol on Max's brain marking him as the King of Antar. As you can see the bottom star completes the V and it's also the brightest star. Meaning with out this star, the symbol, therefore the King, is not complete.

Now in this pic you see Liz standing in the middle of four lights (stars). Look closely, as you can see, Liz is in the spot were the brightest star should be. Liz becomes the bright star that completes the symbol. The Metaphhor is, Liz completes Max.
Dreamers are loyal and faithful and true
to the gospel of love and have nothing to prove!
We know we are right in our beliefs because,
Max and Liz are as constant as the stars above!

"True love's the gift which God has given… "

"True love's the gift which God has given
to man alone beneath the heaven:
It's not fantasy's hot fire,
Whose wishes granted soon fly;
It liveth not in fierce desire,
With dead desire it doth not die;
It is the secret sympathy,
The silver link, the silken tie
Which heart to heart- and mind to mind-
In body and in soul can bind."
- Sir Walter Scott, "Lay of the Last Minstrel"

We love the butterflies in our tummies, the bells that ring in our ears when we kiss, even the ebbing ache to breathless anticipation that builds when we are a part and the explosion of desire when we meet again. This is only part of love. As all the poets write, and all those who are lucky to know love see, the best of love is the knowledge and faith that the object of our love feels a bond that will not break no matter what we do; that however our actions might appear, we do them, not to hurt though that may result; we can trust to always hear the truth though the truth might cause heartache; we know in the deepest center of our souls that they are there for us and that we are there for them; always and forever and that though desire might pass in time our hearts will always tremble with anticipation when first we meet again.

Achieving this bond is the hardest part of love because it requires that we risk who we are; share ourselves with this person and together stay the onslaught of events and hardship out of our control and learn only over time and trouble that this intense desire and connection we first felt is a bond that will last a life time and more.
