Pounding hearts pumping out rivers of love, in the beginning, those
Anointing streams of sweet passion which nourished our souls
Soon began to shrink, then were slowly abandoned. They
Simply seemed to disappear. Those long forgotten
Invigorating waters that washed away our troubles.
Onward now we go, lost and bewildered,
Not knowing how to reclaim what we lost along the way.

Love surrounds us…though people take it for granite
Oh, but we’re unaware of it! We’re ignorant of it at times of tribulation
Vibrant, vermillion roses float in the swaying wind, like feathers, passing me by with a smile and a friendly wave
Everyone is embracing hate instead of love, embracing havoc instead of peace – WHERE IS THE LOVE?
I am longing to feel like I belong! The church bells repeats its penitent bells
Saddened by the fact that I’m trapped in my comfort zone of callous night…I want to be unchained from this solitary cave…but no angels tread the road that I’m currently on unfortunately
Hate rips my heart apart and throws it in the heartless fire…love is invisible like a caved in treasure
Ashamed because I always wanted to find avarice-devouring love, restoring joy to my absent-of-vanity verse
Rain descends like the sunset as my spirit ascends like the sunrise above the disconsolate clouds
Drenched in heartfelt relief…of experiencing love on another level – I’ll bring back to life my faith towards You once more
Tattered by heart’s wistful thumping…replace my heart with beauty’s caress and harmony, for I’m desperately in need of a savior
Owned by hatred, the monster that appears in my nightmares, the vile leader of rancorous wolves…
Fly away from the darkness that made you drink in desolation and devastation
Isolated by bliss and joy – overflowing with lamentation
Never able to find a mixture of serenity and exaltation…maybe I’ll find it in the forest’s quietude
Destined to unlock my heart’s desire…however, love is hard to find, for I’m a hopeless, romantic boy, foolish in love and frankly…blind!
I once knew this girl
who had no face at all.
Everytime she smiled
her world would start to fall.
She learned to hide
She learned to hate
She lost her hope
She lost her faith
The girl I thought I knew so well
Became my enemy.
The girl I thought I knew so well
was no stranger, it was me.

P aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace
L uscious lips that slightly part reveal to my delight
O ne gorgeous smile meant just for me and teeth that sparkle white.
S heepishly I drop my eyes, afraid that he might guess
T he sudden urge that sweeps my soul to feel his sweet caress.
I nfatuation some might say! But I can only sigh. . .
N ever have I felt this way for any other guy.
L ong-lashed luminescent eyes are those of hazel hue
O bserving me! What soulful eyes I’m looking back into!
V anquished by his gaze am I. My forecast may sound grim. . .
E vermore I’m lost because my heart is lost to him!
Loneliness is a fear that sometimes cease life
Cutting through my heart carving its way like a knife
Holding me at a place where I feel for someone I need
To make me feel appreciated, loved and wanted indeed
You asked what is in my heart I once held you second to none
But now here is the truth of my now Dear John
Dear John you made feel like you will always be there
You told me you there was no one else who can care
You claimed to love me and promised me your all
But you busy pleasuring life every-time I call
How could you have held me in your heart when you had none
I gave you my all, blindly believed you now its all gone
You took everything from me you left me with nothing
You said I was yours and so I kept giving
All I have lost and you are no where to be found
Remember you stepped on me when I was on the ground
After that You said love was just a word only fools believed in
You laughed at me when you saw me crippled and bleeding
You said I will never be loved you told me to just hate
I had nothing else but those words so to me they were great
John I have a confession that will change things forever
There was more than you to life but did I see it? Never
I only knew this after you left there was a stranger
He gave me all you took and in my life he became the arranger
John you have nothing here any more
So I give you up and close that door
You will never come back because there is no cause
He told me the truth and loved even my flaws
Something you could have never done
John you lost me now be gone
When I met Him and he was my heart's desire
John for the first time in my life I saw you were a liar
Now who would of thought the thoughts that would truly get the mind lost in fragile thought?
So much on our known life,
about unknown death when we laugh at others but at ourselves we really cry,
in our very own hidden truth lies,
amongst our own poeple who we defy,
until we fight,
for wrongs for personal rights,
**** the darkness is what make us appreciate the light,
I dont talk the talk nor do I walk the walk because I walk my talk while I swagger and swerve im my talks through these walks,
Life can get so messy with death that its time for those of us here to grab the broom so God can mop,
I live life to the fullest with what little I have because I dont have a lot,
I live life shitty sometimes like almost everyone else like it or not,
Im not special Im so unique Im individual with word talent I know I got,
I know what I dont have so its important more knowledge among me is sought,
I can be wrong half the time but can still make it 100% right I was self-taught among a young soul that seems to be bought,
I got a bad limp but dont get me wrong I can still gallup through darkness while I jog lost in the early morning fog waiting to be patiently found in the midnight lounge where I trot,
Truly lost so easily in profound hard thoughts litterally running from the cops waiting to duck and dodge from open gunshots,
Bodies and shells drop where caskets are made among a dying crop,
I can still make a splatter where there was just but a tiny dot,
I used to have merely nothing now atleast I can truly say I have a safe spot,
I was found looking for truth in lies lost in thought....
L ow clouds droop as she sits on rumpled gown
O aths of pale secrets falling through ravaged sleeves
S omber cheeks line a hollowed tract, cast down
T iredness all around; steep as barb- wired leaves.
T ainted droplet hides on eyelid’s corner
E ncasing her passages streaked with pain,
A s black stars perch on withered flowers
R eflecting shadows ruptured, glimpses wane.
S ilently her thoughts prick sparse winds, to blow
O pening dam of jarred beats from love’s past haze;
B eyond snuffed wails, lost tear plunges full flow
S ullen as thorns, she weeps in requiem sways.
Black-Eyed Susan's Lost Contest
A government (in theory) for the people,
My birthplace, my land, and my home,
Eaten up by decades of misuse and decay.
Rich proud few, but full of many poor,
Indebted now and forevermore,
Corrupt politics now commonplace.
A nation (my inheritance?) now disgrace.
Cannot find it anywhere, that I look,
One has it when they are born to know.
Many think they have it, from a book.
Many feel, they have it, with such glow.
Only thing that can be lost and never found,
Never to be returned, thoughts are bound.
Sense of commonality, can rule the world.
Examples surround us every day, unfurled.
Now that you think, you have not lost it.
Send this to a friend, who has not one bit.
Each day, it is gone, true revelations sit.
Lies within oneself take a toll on the spirit.
Our minds degrade us, takes away any merit.
Never do we realize the loneliness we shape.
Eventually we blame others, with solitudes rape.
Lack of love for us, others, takes control.
I have seen sadness, rip up others soul.
Never underestimate the voices you may hear.
Each of us hears, some do not let them steer.
Sadness can become a disease, within a heart.
Solitude can be destroyed, right from the start.
L- Lost in you, and lost in nothing but youre eyes.
O- outside, and inside i can see through youre soul.
V- Validateing and breathing in youre heartbeat as it sinks into the rythum of mine.
E- Elivateting the sound, and the rythum of youre love, and i put my patterns at youres,
becoming all but one. This Exciting love that now what i can never forget the Envirormental
and Eprehensive Expermental love, that is now mine.
F ear is pulling at his mind
R eeling rolling trying to find
I s there nothing in this life?
G oing to blow away his strife!!
H e knows what he must try to do
T he answer, soft, and sweet and true
E nter beyond what mind can see
N ow absorbed in endlessly
E nding all the strife and fear
D aily asking ‘Am I here?
9 September 2013hrs.
So. . . we're losing once more
And... what should I say
Drenched in silence - now I found the words to write
Severed tendrils of hope hang lifeless
As antiquated memories of lost dreams
Lie in a forbidden zone surrounded by silence.
Validation is hard fought for, and soon becomes
Another deception as I lie lost, misplaced, bleeding.
Trepidation slows the endless journey to victory as
I gaze into life’s mirror and search for elusive answers. But somehow,
Onward I continue, knowing deep within my soul that perseverance
Not only will lead to salvation, but allow me to find peace at last.

Today I smile, cus I walked a mile,
Today I’m happy, cus I smile.
Today I gave my heart away,
To a galaxy far away.
Today I lost my leg.
I found it my bed.
Today I lost my arm,
And found it on my mums farm.
Today my soul, decided to stroll,
Happily I had my leg from the bed,
And my arm from the farm,
So my soul was chased and caught,
Placed back in it’s resort.
I wondered what other part of me,
I know this poem sounds a bit strange,
It as no meaning, no gain.
So why do I write about , parts of me
Wanting to flee?
Cus I’m bored you see.
Sea swells lost my memoirs of HER
Under waves to caustic mire and murk’s DESIRE
Never to be seen again, that’s how it IS
Kegs of rum float up though, through ghostly grays, FOR
Eternity which finally released them, but not MY
Note book and papers of my lost LOVE
Terrible things are in the underworld DEEP
Real emptiness and pain score my lonely FEELINGS
Ethereal measures from sea and storm EMERGE
Arise from hidden secret depths, WITH
Treasures of my sweet wife, love mementos as I wait to see, THE
Summoned property that was buried beneath the WAVES
Sitting solely smiling at sparkling stars,
I'm overjoyed of this overwhelming ocean of emotion,
Novice in nervousness, lost in never-ending nights,
All amidst an accelerating and aching heart.
Lying lost in a lagoon of lyrical leisure,
As onlookers observe my overt obsessions.
I veer towards vivifying my vagaries.
For I am engrossed in embracing exhilarating ecstasies,
Such are the salient seducing signs of this sensation.
Abyssal ardor is accentuated and accrued
And vapid vacuity vanquished with veraciousness,
It is Avi, intellectual and inspiring and inscribed in my heart.
You Left me for Suicidal?
I Loss you because you say it was my Fault?
How dare you!
You Left me!
I did everything for you,
I made Everything for you,
But why how could you?
My Heart feels like had been Crushed by a Truck!
When you Died!
When I Lost you!
When I Mop Everyday just because I was Missing you!
and it was all your Fault!
My Life was Ruined
Like it was ended
and It was like I`m weeping
since the day I was loosing
Now would you Understand since you left me?
I can`t express all my Feeling `cause your Missing
and I`m like just Standing
and you`re Enjoying
Here I am,If u can see
All Ruined up wait `till we meet
It would take me 87 years `till we meet again
Now I think you`re Happy
Seeing my Pain all this Years
I wish to see you again
To make it all Go away where I could say Pain
"You left me for Suicidal"
Alone and unwanted. Left behind. Shunned.
Battered by those who pushed you aside.
All because you wanted their affection, but
None would be had, and they cut you inside.
Drowning now--dying. Choking on floods
Of tears full of loneliness, anger, and pain
Emptying your heart of hatred and venom,
Draining the poison eroding your veins.
My muse is missing
If you find it please return it to me
Sadness fills my world
Silent tears I cry
I want it back urgently
Never giving up hope
Give it back to me please
30th July 2014
Another day arrives so I embrace all I see
Rose becomes a constant inspiration to me
On any given day she opens my eyes
She becomes empowerment that is larger than I.
Every moment feels like it could be the chance
Inside the words lives the opportunity to advance
So sweet are the words that they alter my soul
Arms appear for me to climb from this hole.
Realizing the beauty of the flower that bears this name
Opening my mind in turn changing the game
Something calls to me telling me it shall be okay
Everything I lost becomes lost in yesterday.
By any other name it’s still a beautiful flower
Yearning to grow yet requiring a shower
Anything can happen when a flower grows
Yesterday disappears as my purpose starts to show.
No one can take this away no matter what they try
Angels from heaven let loose a heavenly sigh
My love becomes the focus and nothing is the same
Every Rose is a rose by any name……
Lord,I am lost
I have wandered
The righteous path
Into the mists of desire
Never thinking of consequences
Grabbing at the easy rungs of life
Trouble has become a companion
Here now I pledge,no more
Enter my life,I pray
Only you can show the way
Grace me with your light

14 was when we waved goodbye,
to be set off in this world of danger.
14 was when he lost me,
and I lost her.
What a price to pay
for a mother.
What a burden to have
To be lost,
The lioness watches her own be
Taken away into the darkness
To the mouths of ghostly,
Evil, red eyed beasts.
How can she take this pain?
broken heart brought before her.
She is calling them in the night.
Howling for them to come
consume her body in minutes,
alleviating all the pain
from this lost love.
Lost in the darkness.
They are full now,
I’m heading back home.
The second sun
He is surprisingly beautiful.
A path of light and direction
I have always wanted to be.
My pathway of righteousness
Feeling anguish now,
Wasting time again.
I’ve just now realized
all this time,
You were the howling
that’s been calling me back home.
been too far along now
In this sea of death.
Its my time now,
Its time for you to bring me home.
On my own...I'm walking on my own...
I saw you in my room last night
and you always used to grow cold
when you felt the ceiling fan cool your skin
I remembered when we used to talk
and share our memories
You of morocco
and mine of a morocco that never was
I had a wedding dress on and I was standing
somewhere in a hallway in Marrakesh
You had that life and you lost it
I never got that life and lost it as well.
I can smell the smoke of flames gone past
and songs never sung
And I loved you that December
Even though you were never mine
Cruel but innocent man with a face so soft
I never lost you my Moroccan cause I never
But that's what made you so pretty
lying but honest heart thief
His daddy left, He was so hurt .
Left him behind, For one so young.
Betray and lost, He was so young .
A bond of love, Lost and broken, Left behind.
How he waited, So many times, Left in tears .
Yet still he never appeared. A lost boys silent pain .
Innocent child , So loved, Destroyed by divorcee.
He betrayed his mum, With another one so young.
So hurt , confused, His pain . Anger took his place .
One so young, Out of control, In so much pain .
Inflicting pain, Punching walls, Behind those tears
Another broken child from divorcee .
Hurt and scared, inside broken never forgiven…
A lost love . A true bond . Daddy’s son . His Loss
He never knew . Never cared . Till he saw his own disgrace .
Now its gone . That special bond . No return.
Another broken child from divorcee…
I t was once lost after a miserable fight
N o cure was found to get it back
D own the lakes and rivers it swam
I nto the caves it built its stand
F ighting to get back on the surface
F earing to be alone and forgotten
E ndless nights passed with sorrowful tears
R ushing down its beautiful face
E vaporating every speck of the smile
N ow shattered into pieces of broken glass
C ries reaches the sky up high
E ngulfing its lively clouds
R ain drops splashed against earth's surface
U ncovering the beasts than were seized beneath its core
L eashing wild monsters into the world
E xploding the evil that was once trapped beneath
S and and rocks all over the world
T ime passed and the treasure was never found
H arsh mornings crept along with the vague fog
E ating the peace people lived in
H igh above the mountains
E agles flew so high
A gainst the wind that's so strong
R eaching for the distance far beyond
T earing the guards that prevent its approach
S creaming to revive the lost and loved one
O ne night, a light shone so bright
F lashing a glow in the midst of the blue
M oisture of glory and pride filled the air
A nd freedom spread its wings and took flight
N ews reached every person where the began
Y elling so loud: "LOVE IS BACK"
