WHAT WENT WRONG

In twilight,
the noose tightens-
and shadows start walking
towards you; to reclaim
your anonymity-
and declare in deadpan manner:
the author is dead.

Your smallness goes
on sale. You are subjected
to scrutiny by the small print, but
the truth escapes from lidless eyes.

A private punishment.
There was blood on the knife.
Why did you write a
sanguinary poem for your savior today ?

Battle of the words

Bravery is the father of fears
Dreams are distant cousins of nightmares
Hope is the sister of prayers
Every night shame lays down and gets screwed by despair
Pollution abuses Mrs. atmosphere
It's a battle between personality and reality 
But obviously nobody cares
Maybe it's because big tough is the uncle of little scared
Planning is deeply in love with prepared
Procrastination is the biggest enemy of determination
Ignorance is jealous of realization
Sometimes strength can get sneak attacked by temptation
Silence can never defeat a great proclamation
When the brain disagrees with the heart
The body dies of complications


Love your self...

What Fear Fed On

Fear
The venom that rains
Got you
Drowning
In the desert
And a spirit
Weak in brevity
Strong but unbelieving
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

Society cuts
Flying wings
As to drain
The courageous soul
Of its hope
And then
People die
Rich with power
Power they never used
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

I see plain pain
In your eyes
Hurt laughing at you
You’re afraid
To ever love again
Because your past
Caused you wounds
So you walk agape
Running
In a cold escape
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

I see your dried tears
Inscribed
On your broken face
But a determination
You’ve been robbed of
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

So will you
Forever sulk
Forever your conscience bulk
In a pessimist bask?

Or will you
Your mantle take
And fear forever shake
For you live dead
When fear drives your head

That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

FARTHER AWAY

To disconnect oneself
you push apart, from the stasis,
like flesh from the bones.
Coming home becomes dreadful
when you discover yourself.

A dark energy impels you
in a cosmos which was drifting
towards eternity. A fight between
space & time ultimately settles
for a second life.

Paralysed mind goes into dementia.
A riverbed, waterless, where you can dig out
the ancient marbles, edifice of a great flaming past.
It was obscene. At a hunger meet
tables were set with delicious cuisine.

My Grandma is gone

Why did she have to go away
Why did she leave all of us 
I wish she was here so we can stop crying

She was the best grandma that anyone can have 
when my cousins and I was young when she would bake a cake she would 
always let us lick the spoon

She was so funny even when she wasent trying to be funny
Now she is looking down on all that know her and love her
When she first held her great grandson my son the look in her eyes she felt joy 
and happyness and that he is still in her heart even though she is in a better 
place

I miss her so much I still feel the pain in my heart but it will get better 
I am glad she has no more pain..

She will live on in our hearts and we will never forget her
Her life did not end it is just beginning.


For MY Grandma Dorthy Purcell RIP AND I LOVE YOU

Carpe Diem

you cant help but feel to failure,
presence of nothingness fills your heart,
 your subconscious mind turns into your enemy,
and the heart you stitched together has fallen back apart
your head is filled with memories, in which stab your present thought,
The smile on your face is artificial,
while the pain in your heart remains sought
stuck in this state of mind, its hard to let it go
you get high to seize the day, because on ground level, 
your stuck at a low

FORGETTING

What was about this face ?
Between mirage and actuality ?
A fireball was coming towards you.
You upturn the underside, 
wanted to taste the blood
and get argasm.
The statues were posing nude.

Mothers were clad in leaves.
Fruits were the greed of man.
I refuse to lie in state. The
sand grains will find the innocence
of silver breasts when sky will
spat a murder. Were you ready
now to become corrupt ?

At last the beginners are now
becoming the boots.

Distorted

                              Distorted

My face is distorted
Is my real face even showing?
I don't know if I'm experiencing my true feelings
My love is true is yours?
I demand you and you shut the door in my face repeatedly 
We have many years together and yet we have nothing

Our children see the real you 
The real person I  have seen since day one
I can't believe you let your love for society get in the way of my innocents
How dare you? 
I have to be everything to them and it's not fair to them 
They will grow up knowing I was the only consistency in their wee lives

Where is the outline for me?
Do you hear my screams? What about the silent ones?
I go without so much because my wee little ones need more than I 
What do you go without?

I look in the mirror at myself
Who is looking back at me?
Is this really me? Is this really my life? 

I stood by you through so much
The things you did the things you said to me
You have hurt me like no other has and yet I'm still here are you?
Emotionally I'm not here, My heart stays here, But I can't figure out where my mind is
Or where it all belongs? 
I'm so torn, so broken, so numb 
I guess I'm just going to be distorted for the rest of my time with you
I promised I would love you through everything and I have but where is the outline?

I don't see the real me and haven't in a long time thanks to you
I don't even do my hobbies anymore I just sit and watch the world as I call life pass by
Why do you want our wee little innocents to see this? what would posses you to?
If I broke my promise would I be submitted to the pits for enternity? 
I gained so much and yet I lost more much 
You hurt me with life itself and nothing but fear 
Can you honestly tell me what have you lost you entire life?

It feels like a band-aid  that I just can't take off no matter how I rip it off
Do I wear a mask over me? Does anyone see the real me anymore?
I hurt so much with you but yet I loved you for so long 
I can't accept your I'm sorry pity excuses anymore 
Is my face nothing to you? Does it mean nothing to you?

My heart feels so much anger, depression, emotions of not being wanted
Do you or have you ever felt this way?
I don't know what to believe in anymore
I feel like paper and I'm being torn into a million pieces 
Or what if you are putting me through a paper shredder?
Is the real me even showing?
I'm distorted

above pain

Above pain

Quote;
He has been stepped on
He has been hated on
But he still stands and rises above pain
Wars came, left relatives dead
He cried, he trembled
But he still stands
Once regretted his birth
Once thought of taking his life.
Thunder strikes and that’s enough
To make him gain strength
To aim higher and rise above pain
He is now rising above pain
Trying everything to clean his brain

If he was created in God’s image?
Why can’t God take care of His image?
Questions he couldn’t find answers to
Friends all gone,
The only family he has ever known
Streets become his home,
Starving to death,
Could not hold his breath
But still standing strong
And promises to rise above pain..
                                                       By, ino29

TOUSLING

Sighting the plankton,
it was the moondown 
entry, of heron 
in the lake.

*

Flawless, a big fish 
eats the small fish. 
It was not a 
faux pas.

The animalism 
outreaches. Would you 
now go for a 
favourite deity ?

Beast



Bitter by ; being mentally bruised and battered most of my life,
shaken with fright without a single soul to help me
through the troubles unseen horrors of the night, 
from an evil source that I fear to strike. 
But as the evil forces, who limited my choices 
that when I found my stallion horses. 
Swiftly it came to my head I can run and I cannot hide, 
feeling the Beast closing in on every time I decide to hide. 
Tired of running and tired of alluding this
relentless creep as my red bolt eyes weep 
feeling rest-less, likes a lonely defeated warrior from his home in retreat 
that is when I knew it time to rest, to release my Beast. 
But in a fight, I may not win however as I cast out my dirty words sin
I made sure it felt my impact, to the bloody end.

THE JUNGLE RULES

Wrigglers dripped again
from hidden heights. The red river changed
its course furiously. The wave climbers
abseiled from a lethal boat

to wipe out the beach memory. Timeline 
sneaked to put the blood signature
of a cult on the glass shards.

A biosynthesis starts for tadpoles
destroying the infrastructure of the species.
Yolk sacs were emply. New borns
were turning into snakes.

Enemy swept across the land. Deers
were being released for the panthers.
The boundary was only meant for the victims.
The metamorphosis was complete.

The Vent

im livin in a world, where all eyes on me.
trying to curve my own route.
but route 66 keeps finding its way to me.
ive been plenty sick, in all the events layed before me.
even when i reflect to my lowest points
i dont regret any of the choices
That I’ve deployed in my era
A lot of it by error, but hey
We live in hell conditions and there ain’t no air condition 
Or any guidelines when life throws you in the sidelines
But when hindsight twenty twenty hits
You’ll begin to understand life’s a bunch of equations and you in the mix of it
An you’ll have to think twice, before running into a situation and becoming the best of it
Situations
it’s what got me here, it’s what got us here
Ran with my thoughts blazing up to her place and
Guess what happened next
She opened up heaven’s gate
And just before late I slipped out
Simply put 
I’m a Grown ass man
Doin his thing, waitin to blow up like an old land mine
In doin what he drools over
But time after time 
Something decides to creep up and cover the light
Lost my way
Then I revoked to ever know, I ever thought that way
But in the in between time, that in the mean time 
Spent a lot of time
Gettin pissed off just to medicate and lift off
Don’t need Don Perion to sip off
Already had my way with the bottle
Even thought to get back with the trouble and rejoin the hustle
That’s just what happens to a man who really knows his old ways
Whos tired of making ends meet and ponders getting back to the streets.
Memory sets in and he remembers an O.G. saying
No matter how tall your pockets stand when you ball
Eventually times gonna make you fall
Fall
And I as I pull myself together 
I don’t wanna end up like the twin towers rubble
I mean no offence to nine eleven but at that time I probably could have used a reverend
But all that’s irrelevant now
because i live with a different perspective now

there you go you made it to the end :-) comment if you like, constructive criticism wanted as well.

weakness in his strength

“WEAKNESS IN HIS STRENGTH”

Quote;
Weakness in his strength
Born by hatred and raised by anger
He felt like his life was hangin on a hanger
Poor little one,
People loved his dad, but to him he was dead
Happiness.
His dad’s name, in his senses
Covered by memories
And surrounded by sadness
He said he had seen the worst
But he is not the first
He had failure as his big brother
Hatred kept near them as their mother
He thanked God for every breath
But could not find the weakness in his strength

The weakness in his strength
Poor little one, with his
Weakness in his strength

Lights looked bright to others but to him
They looked deem
Funeral for his mother…
Dead and gone was Mrs. Hatred
That’s the moment he forgot about hate and
Decided to move in with dad,
Living Mr. Anger alone which left him mad
Success, a beautiful lady his dad 
Started dating last weak
She was introduced to him
But still felt weak
Education, who she met at school and changed his life
Who she later made his wife
Had to hire a babysitter by the name of health
After having a baby who they named wealth.

The weakness in his strength
Weakness in his strength 
Started facing death.
                                                                                                           Written by,

Push Up

i could sit here. day in and day out
thinking of the most proper way
to let the ink in the pen spill out
but as of late im feeling prehistoric 
so much weight on my shoulders 
and i dont know where to go
resuscitate my soul
look back up and head to the goal

so much evil around. i feel like the devils workin double shifts just to bring me down.
on the road to redemption
you can take a seat up in the front section
just so you can feel the emotions
in this electric notion

i've done a lot of things that hide the halo
let it all collaborate when i medicate 
now look at me, mind workin like plato
formulate a new path to take so i can
maneuver through all the mistakes 
we all know we cant change what we've already made
but we can change the next thing we create
startin to sound like a serenity prayer
5 steps till im thirty
and the twenty four before i was never a player
found out when the lights came back on im strictly a lover
its the strongest drink for your soul, when its thirsty
so careful how much you intake or be left hungover
even worse be the one she ran over

i dont mean to come off like im too deep
but the obstacles made there way through just to scrape through
and leave me suffocating
just for me to re-invent a new way to breathe, re-decorating

is your life so complicated 
you rather wet up your pillows and revoke from the life you live
just think of your kids mourning 
theyll never see that pretty face in the morning any more
cheer your self up
you got a lot to live for
your a gem and im that friend
trynna appraise the value 
that you dont see inside of you


just another day for him
goin about
searchin wonderin what his purpose is
running in circles 
till he found a way through all the turbulence

LIFE IN GRAMMAR'S WAY

              let today be the present tense.
              yesterday be the past tense.
              tomorrow be the future tense.

              let we be the parts of speech.
              you are the noun there,
              i am your verb,
              you can make the pronoun to talk about the noun,
              adverb can't stand without verb,
              let adjective be verb which qualifies the noun,
              noun you can have the company of preposition,
              conjunction shouldn't come between us,
              by seeing you i became interjection.

              let your surroundings be the sentence.
              you be the subject.
              make your life verb.
              make use of object,
              you and you only be the complement.
              don't adjust and go and become adjunct.

              don't listen the idioms of some idiots.
              we don't want to be homophones.
 
              you are the main clause.
              i'm your subordinate clause.
              without main subordinate cant.,
              this is life. enjoy it in grammar's way.....

The Day You Went To Heaven

             The day you went to heaven
  You took my heart with you
  For my life has since been empty
  No fullfillment in anything I do

              I see no blue in the sky
   And the sun no longer shines
   The birds no longer sing to me
   The clouds aren't fluffy and white

               The day you went to heaven
    My world just fell apart
    Not all the glue on this fair earth
    Could mend my broken heart.

                 So, until I get to heaven
     Just save a place for me
     Until that time I want you to know
     In my heart is where you will be.

Family love

How popular and loved are you? 
I'm not talking the passed by wanna be's,                                    
or those who give you hugs when they see you.                      
              
Forget about the ones who call themselves your friends,         
while they texted you once in the past seven days if they even tex ted.                                                
You have more than thousand friends on facebook even more twitter followers,                         
how many can you call when you out of bread,                             
forget about the taxi fee when the month is dark.                                               
How many who actually follow you in real life,                                 
forget about those you bbm and send your naked pictures to,                                                      
how many who whatsapp you, 
facebook you without seeing your status updates?                        
forgive me if I'm being paranoid or insensitive.    
they say you are the twerleb, a celeb that is dating Caleb 
but what we see, self hate human being, who post selfies
that  describe the life would you desire.
They say your tweet said " clubbing tonight"
while you were busy cutting yourself under the bed today.  
                                                              
Your friends used to be, 
are posting picture of their families, 
some selfies of their resent boyfriends named Tim,               
and you still busy posting edited jokes about people,                     
how lonely can it get?                
How lonely are you?                          
Maybe you don't need any of that, 
maybe all you need is family love,  
I may not be the smartest, 

but I have shoulders to give, 
I have tissues to wipe away your tears, 
because I am your family.

Path

Will I turn back? No, why?
Cuz this is my path, in life.
Will i stop, and wait for death?
Or will I live life, Breath by breath?
I choose to live day to day, with this life,
Cuz death can take us at any time.
Why not make the best of what we have now?
I REFUSE to keep my head hanging down.
I will try to live life to the best of my ability,
With peace, love, and tranquility.
i choose to be and think positively,
If I dont, I'll be self demolishing.
I chose the path I walk, Whether it be with someone or alone,
I'm pleased with myself and maybe a place to call home...
Who knows?
I will mature even wiser than before
Don't be jealous because YOUR decisions were poor.
Happier more than I ever was, now uncovered,
A life out there, WORTH being discovered?!?!?!?!?
Will I turn back? No, Why?
Cuz this is my path, in LIFE.

Don't Go

Don't go
Stay.
Don't go
Stay.
I said no
But I mean, I don't know.

The black moon is drowning over the opal sea.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

Hold my hand,
Please.
Hold my hand,
Please.
I said I'm not ready,
But I mean, I don't know.

The red sun is exploding in a plum blue sky.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.


Sleep with me,
Tonight.
Sleep with me,
Tonight.
I said I'm not sure,
But I mean, I don't know.

The Lightening in my soul is burning, burning burning.
And my heart is a giant eagle beyond my will.

What the HEART WANTS,,,,

The HEART WANTS what the HEART WANTS,
    People say "Listen to your HEART."
But what if you can't HEAR it?
         Your MIND wants all these other things,
and then you CAN'T HEAR your HEART.
        I sit and CLEAR my MIND 
   I sit LISTENING to my HEART
 BUT it SAYS NOTHING
  it BEATS to NOTHING
 

         What am i suppose to do now?

BEAUTY- You're Beautiful

Beauty is not the eyes that smites the ocean
It's not that dazzling pebble they call the pupil
It's neither the lashes that makes a rainbow
Nor the brows that sink titanic

Beauty is neither the nose that face no fear
Nor the way it sucks those air
It's not the fact it perceives BIG
And the moment it throws you off league

Beauty cannot be the lips that levels the mountains
The one that cries,"I LOVE YOU"
It's not the kiss that makes lips hunting
Never the shape it makes in blue moon

Beauty is not those ears that seek attention
Nor the ring that flavors the lobe
It's not how demanding it seeks affection
And how mind-blowing and lovely that flows

Beauty is not the strands of hair that matter
Nor the way it whips and scatter
It's not the way it circles the continent
And when fixed, makes a monument

Beauty is not the body that solves calculations
4+4, 4x2, 9-1
It's neither the way it responds with reaction
Nor how it burns the sun to make it worm

BUT BEAUTY!!! BEAUTY!!!

Beauty is her acting like an Angel
Her heart that melts the seas
The way she smiles like there's no fear
Her talent that glamours her destiny

Beauty is the way he stands like a soldier
The way he embarrasses with LOVE 
His strength excited when older
And his heart purer than blood

SO WHEN ANYONE SAYS YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL, IT'S BEYOND THE physical.

WILLOW'S HEART

Bamboo's leaf shadowing your soul,
It dances swiftly inside your whole,
Wonderful bliss pours on you like a bowl,
When it's empty it shall comes again in sole.

Your smile makes the earth beaming,
Your willow's heart create new breathing,
You bring the bright hopes of beginning,
Never give up and continue to striving.

Immersed by your purest tranquility,
Your gentle heart capsized everybody,
Willow's heart always comes in purity,
Overcomes fears and cast out every negativity.

Yosemite Valley

A glazed view, as through a glass that magnifies
Between the granite banded with blue and umber
Cruel paths of glacier, ancient swords of hunger
Deeply carved a threshold one can hardly grasp
Each turn of compass, leaves a gasp
Forever brings our talking to a halt
Green rivers whipped to white by waterfalls
How gaunt the pines climb high upon the ridge
Itself, a place exempt from time
Justifies belief of Godly kind
Keeping watch above a valley floor
Looming monoliths of ancient lore
Morning bright of shimmering brooks that flow 
Next brings winter breezing through the mind
Ours the privilege of beholding
Past and futures coming here together
Question not the overwhelming wonder
Relished eyes behold the truthful splendor
Saturates the heart and soul forever
That if one stands too long within such glory
Under white peaks and folklore stories
Varying degrees of speechlessness and thrill
With sun above,  and human form so small
Xanadu is not of fiction, it is real
Yosemite, this place, this land of royal grace
Zenith, this land of majesty, my eyes and heart embrace

Lady Una and the Lion

Walking in the meadow of life on that summer day


Where she always loved to be at Una  walked along the steady stream 
As she picked up the white Lilly flower and put upon her hair of gold (princess of love)

And the daughter of a dander king
Una suddenly turned her head to the old orchard tree and begun to sing roman lullabies of joy

With tears of affection shed for the god who lives above the skies
At that moment she gazed back to the stream 
And there the lion stood so tall just like a king eyes wide looked to una 
As she went toward the mighty lion he went to her and utter'd thee words 
 I am a creature of pride with nothing to hide I am pure of heart true of courage with a mask of savage a mane gold as our hearts-

She became very happy and intrigued 
As she laid her gentle hands on upon the lion she spoke these words 
  -I love thee lion and by sun and moon I love thee freely as men strive for right;
I love thee purely in my old griefs and childhood's faith 

There a tiny lamb appears right next to her and the lion 
So small and graceful like a gift from god above 
The tiny lamb followed them further into the enchanted meadow sky as crystal blue and the wind is calm they drifted off strung into the world
To bring new love joy and courage to the world and spread good faith

INVISIBLE-WOUND

As i cause conflict
between pen and paper,
my mind takes a journey, 
going back to the how
we used to be.

Tears are instantly 
released 
from my eyes.
Memories stored in my 
mind arise. 

Hidden secrets of my 
undiscovered
fear becomes exposed,
i scratch my old wounds 
hoping to see blood.

Blood which symbolizes 
pain,
shall my wound be noted
when i become pale?

Invisible wound neglected
for it can't be seen with
the naked eye.
Invisible wound rejected,
because no doctor is  
qualified enough
to heal it.

How long shall i remain
with a wounded soul?
How long will i que up to 
see a surgeon to take my 
beyond repair heart out
and give me a new heart,

A heart capable of 
trusting again,
a heart able to love 
unconditionally again.  
A heart that will pump 
blood and not pain.
A heart that will beat 
and not fear to love.

This wound bleeds 
internally and everytime i 
try to forget about its 
agony,
i wish i could just see it,
because this invisible 
wound will have me 
thrown in a deep pit

Girl Rising

A Young Beautiful girl with so much spirit in her to lift the soul

With blissful hopes to come she would become a queen they did not want

Many loved her beauty as a child but her step mother

Of a selfish dander king family did not like her at all

They wanted all but wrong for her and to lock her in a chamber with ash 
And dust that filled the air

Far away from society king wanted because they felt she was from rags in poor

Stead of riches and wealth a lonely child from the cottage where
The king’s witch of a sister raised her.

She became a slave scared to face the king’s wicked sister

She abide by what she was afraid to go
With a single tear she longed to be free and become
Something more than an average girl.
But a girl that rises up from the hate and dander rules set by one world

She wanted to be free to be loved and liked for what she believed in

As the days went on she grew stronger and rising from the pain in her heart
And by the twisted society by her step moms brother who wanted nothing 
But sorrow and to be down in the dumps of rags 

She took a stand for freedom a stand for love and never backed down
From her past she kept on fighting a battle which seemed endless

As she looked to the moon crying out with screams that echoed in the forest
Sounding so loud half a forest could hear

She took the dagger and the shield took it to her heart and utter words like these
          Lord of the sky’s guide me today and give me much more strength 
    Then I had yesterday and as my will to rise be ever strong may I not rest 
Till this dander evil king is no more

She went off and into the castle she snuck into with mighty dagger and shield with the heavens by her side she struck him out and proclaimed freedom and love to all this is a girl truly rising faith and all that stands for what’s right a brave girl that rises from hate
this is a girl rising up from the pain

Green People

I see green people
They tell me they come in peace 
But they are showing me the roots to all evil
I see green people
They try to disguise their intentions 
But their actions are so see through
I see green people
They are the true world leaders
There are no free actions or thoughts
You do or think what they want you to
I see green people
They manipulated all of our history
So if we were to find the truth
It doesn't matter because their is no proof
I see green people
As their head grow larger 
I continue to have distant dreams of me being considered a equal
I see green people
They told me to worship them or die
Close my eyes and look through the lies
Because without them 
There is no chance to walk among the Gods
I see green people 
And there is no doubt about it
They truly show me the roots to all evil

DESPERATE

I would cry a river to be away from despear,
I would drink an ocean to have the aches i feel disappear.
I would reel in the moon to have the shackles removed from my feet,
And their is no mountain i wouldn't climb to stop his grinding of my teeth.
I'd walk around the world to hear the noises stop,
I'm prepared to eat the eyes of an eagle to prevent my heart attack.
Or rob a bank , or touch the sun, or cut a star in two,
I'd rather burn in fire than stay this way with you.
I would tour the ocean floors, tear my heart out of my chest,
Take a bullet to my head, Or drill a whole through my left breast.
If it would take away the turmoil, and wash the mud from my brain
And cleanse my heart of impurities, like a treasure washed clean by rain.
Or if it would shine the sun, that would in turn warm my heart,
And melt away this icebox, that turned me cold and torn apart.
I'm desperate to erase the memories, of hurt and loveless times,
Of empty dreams and promises, of things that were never mine.
Just tel me what to, no matter how impossible it may seem,
I just want this feeling to be over, I want the reality of my lifelong dream.

Our Victory

Very refined and also defined as a true woman,
Intense feelings in my heart causes me to cherish each and every moment.
Could it be that your nature kept my heart from being destroyed in the devil's fire?
The looks of it you blessed me with courage to understand I'm not just a tool for hire.
Only the sound of your voice could disintegrate the stress from hard times...so it seems,
Realizing the true potential of your continuing mending heart was well felt to the extreme.
In a fashion the glow of your eyes brought light in this dark world that arose new hope,
After acknowledging this feeling I could never see ourselves going through a grope.

Joyous intensity surges through my body while I daydream about "our" life,
Often I get surprise that my heart and mind never experienced a strife.
Neither of us foresaw the emotions that allowed ourselves to go through,
Every night that I hold you it feels as though our souls are doing a pas de deux.
Simply knowing that I'll always have your love is enough to make me stay true to you like
I already do...

A CRICKET INVADES THE NIGHT

in a rumpled,
black city
homes are sliced in half
the equality demands
the rights of people

sometimes you love a 
tormentor
he will be able to wed, albeit
shyly, with the physical
cleaning the love’s deficit

how far the waiting will go
skirting the mist
it was there
in you
in me
a rapist
a serial killer

wonders about my colour BLACK

I don't know if I should love you or hate you
As innocent as I was you just had to label me
You took my love and replaced it with lust 
You made me lie
You thought me hate 
Most of all you made me hate the color black
You made me hate my Afro
You exploited my curves, my butt and my boobs
Yet I didn't understand why because when I looked at 
myself I saw an hour-glass with a pot-belly, curves, thick 
lips, with a heart that is so tough and long like the grate 
wall of china
Who's mind never shut like the busy streets of New York
Who has scars like the African mountains and valleys
Who has cries like winter rain 
With no voice like a whale crying for its child
You left me lost wondering, abandoned if I'm still human...

Loving and Losing : A Part of Me Died When You Died

Losing someone is like losing the very breath u take to survive

Like holding in air, taking the deadliest,deepest dive

Like someone knocked all the air,better yet, the life out of ur life

Like they jabbed u in ur heart with the sharpest knife

The emptiness inside ur soul,makes ur blood run cold

Like red roses that stood high, that turn black, then fold

Lost without ur eyes, in a dark empty wood.

Grasping to reach anything u could.

Nothing in reach for u to hold close

No one around, when u need them the most

Nothing to warm ur heart & keep it beating steady

U didn't ask for this,unexpected, u weren't ready

It's like a stiffness in ur body,like ur growing old anew

No one around to console u

Ur at a loss for words

No chirping for black birds

Ur missing apart of u & inside's a hole

They used to stick with u,like a mole

Losing love is like losing ur mind

Every thought,but the reason, u still can't find

Enough memory to last ur lifetime,but they're still not there.

Ur mind is gone,but u can't think as to where.

A part of ur heart & mind have vanished with the lost of someone so dear

& u love them & miss them more with every tear

Thinking bout them, only makes it worse

It happened so quickly, u'd think it was a curse

Loving & losing a lover or a friend

Family, or next to kin

It's a universal emotion, which we all can relate

They accepted their fate

& we must face

We'll get through it at our own pace

Because we know , they're in a better  place

Dear Sunset- love letter

The way streaks of light
Tickles the horizons 
When sunset smiles 
Just makes my soul squeal 
And my heart do cart-wheels backwards
And I look at him
With so little care at the world
But much for him
Wishing he could tuck 
My emotions bit by bit
Into his heart and carefully melt 
Them onto the palm of his hands
So that each time we touch
Every nerve in my body responds
Shout songs of praise and happiness 
From the top of my voice as
He tastes my will 
And tread after my hand's touch 
Listening to the beat of want
As it echoes deeply
In his throat
"Tell me sunset, does your lips
Taste of mine when you lick them"

Treasures of your soul


Life is Harsh, Life is good
Only the few of the proud 
Those men that stand for a great nation
Their life at the stake
So rough and sharp
Every day is another challenge 
For them and for all
Freedom we all hope
But sometimes feel lost
Never give up that spark 
Hope don’t give it up for a price 
And when I see these great men and woman
Risk their life for a single child lost
With guns all around and wars of hate
I feel blessed as my country truly stands brave
A child is a gift of new life and hope
As I see the children in their arms saved at last
Only then will I ever know true courage
This is a path we should always cherish and follow
When the flame burns out nothing is left but stay strong
So please don’t shed a tear I am right here
By your side always and forever  
Our country stands not alone, but as one
Heart filled with love

Thunder and green mint

Thunder and green mint
The forest so lust I can taste 
the tea from here. The rain hits 
the roof as I hear the cats purr, 
I lay on my bed starring out my 
window wishing you were here 
by my side watching it with me. 
The rain it soothes my mind 
relaxes my soul and chills my 
veins I can smell your cologne 
from the room next door, you 
told me "if you sit in the rain 
long enough to hear it speak 
then you're lucky enough to 
always remember me"
I will always remember you and 
from now on every time it rains 
I promise you to sit there as 
long as I hear it speak so I will 
always remember your voice, it 
was mellow like the rain it 
made me melt and it chilled my 
veins.
Now I sit here in the rain trying 
hard to let my thoughts leave 
I'm wet inside the forest of 
green mint I hear it coming the 
wind blows and I hear you, 
"don't tell no body" this is our 
secret we had the power to 
hear it speak and once you left 
the rain washed you away so 
now everyday from January to 
march I will never forget your 
voice unless it never rains.

MidNight Wishes

Even though i did not hear your voice tonight i'm still ahit,
I will go on like this for ever, i wont go out without a fight. 
I'll fight till the end of this life to win your heart,
All you have to do is tell me when to start.

The music blarrin in my head phones at 1:52 AM and i'm lovin it, 
cause it helps me remember your gorgeous smile like it was meant to fit. 
Wanting to feel your touch and kisses all over me ignites the fire in me,
Wanting to take you by your hand and run wild in a big sea. 

There aint much i can say to express myself but this will have to do for tonight,
I think its just that i haven't reached height.
You no I love you and that's all that matters or will ever matter to me,
I will love you till i die, like I told you before, cant you see?

Metepora

What lies beneath 
The flooding drains
A spiders web
Spawned of rustic chains
If you ask me how I am 
I'll reply that I'm ok
Hiding behind this mask
As I resume to face this day
Then theres the sights
A synonym of what I cannot find in you
But I have found
Sometimes hunger is the only kind of food
Have I lost my Faith?
Its something that I could never see
Then theres your eyes
Still falling away from me
But if I was a better man
Would your rivers run deep into outer space
While all along your insisting
That we are both two worlds away 
Behold this longer list of denials
And uncertain hope
Reflecting fears of affection
And you still keep your eyes closed 
Then by my own admissions
My heart has grown from cold to colder
And by my own submissions
Losing your love has bled me sober

A Drug Needed

How can this be?
How can I let another human being 
take control of me
Let you whisper promises I've 
already heard
I told myself that better is what I 
deserve
What makes you different?
I'm still trying to figure it out,
I try to lose thought of you as I 
wonder about
but I end up back in your arms
Safe and warm
your every touch sending chills from 
my head to toes
Oh how I don't want to let go!
These blue veins run with every 
ounces of your heart that I have,
I wonder how long this love will 
last?
just, just one kiss so I can sleep
One heart that you can keep
don't ever walk away from me
I may just go crazy!
I know I'm every where with this 
poem but I can't get right 
Maybe a-another kiss will make me 
alright ;)

Inside the African Pot

In her eyes i saw me,
the very inner man that vanished from this earth,
here i am laughing from the depth of my very soul,
unearthing the spirit that was covered with a pot.
tell me my love, to whom do i owe this gratitude
when the hunter now hunts with his catapult
the gun then becomes bored to shame.

the days of the hamattan ceased to flourish
the moment of endless rain is dew
when we will cover our lonely bodies with garments
that are made of sacks of gold dusts,
and lie solemnly in our huts
waiting to see tomorrows face.

tell me my pot of gold
to whom do i owe this gratitude,
that has shielded my feet with sandals,
quenched my belly with food
tell me! so i may praise aloud.

A PLACE CALLED THERE

Not too far from here
Lies the dream terrace I hear
The haven of bliss and solace
A glamorous gem of a place
The end of a weary quest
The trophy in fiery contest

Not too far from here
Sits the crown we lived to dare
Purple pride of an intellectual struggle
The green goal of a ceaseless hustle
A place we once asked where
Still seem so far yet so near.

Not too far from here
Stand the Mentors we hold dear
Men who were not shy to believe
Men who fought fear to achieve
The exclusive pass to the hall of fame
for those whose brand is in their name

Your there may differ from mine
I run my route and you run thine
But run we must run and not turn
We sacrifice pleasure and shun fun
Because, not too very far from here
Is a place called there.

Dare to get there.

A LANTERN GUIDES

Cereus was in bloom in nightwashed
desert, sand was cool, it tipped off
the contour drain, a river sent its compliments.

If the death was at home, like an
estranged lover, will you open the door
in dusky stripes of morning ?

Rubber was burning in afternoon rain.
An alert was sounded in curious lanes;
the shadow was lengthening its stay !


Standing on the burnt-out hull, I count
the shouts of the fathers on artifical limbs.
Bits of violence  have broken the sea.

The seedless fruits descend on the glistening
coffin. A city walks with me without end.
There were roses, roses all the way.

Dear Light of mine, Joy of my

Always be happy  my sunshine,
Dance like the bright twinkling

Jump up and down with

There are no limits in life my

Keep your heart in the right 
place, Shun your face from evil.

Do not hang on to anything or 
anyone who makes you cry.

Dead

Dead


Dead person does not harm 
Or love any one
Why people scare of them!
After death

Surgeon knows dead person 
Does not oppose
While dissects corpse

Difference between the dead
And slept is
One can speak
Another cannot.

All know this irony fact
Even cannot trust in that

Like in cinema role remains apart
People in life perform vast
With a fact along belief of act

Thus the life rolls on rolls on 
Until fate defaces task

So in time keep with tact of nature 
And forget to fear with dying act

Surgeon knows dead person
Does not oppose 
While he dissects corpse.

- MARTYR -

" There is nothing wrong on giving all you have to that person who holds your heart, being broken-hearted is okay but being broken- hearted twice from the same guy is off the track. " 
 
 
 Girl, you've been lied,
you've been cursed,
you've been thrown,
you have cried, 
and you've been hurt.
Still your heart can take
so much of that.
 
 
 Sure you know
the difference between love and insanity.
Committing mistake and learning from it, its ok.
but committing the same mistake over and over again
is stupidity.
 
 
 You let go of your heart and your mind,
I hope someone will catch it at the end of time.
One day, I hate to see again,
in one corner you cry...
 
I may not know how is it to be on your shoes,
but I am pretty aware of the pain it caused.

Because It Hurts

So hurt I am, slowly dying 
inside.
Frustrated because we can't 
make it right. 
Mad because I could never see, 
your body was here but heart 
was no longer with me.
Sad because I can't let u go, 
this silence is killing  me, you 
don't even know.
Angry because I cry and I cry, 
and tell you my feelings and 
get no reply.
Disappointed because we can't 
be together , but still I will hold 
on forever and ever. 
With high hopes on you 
changing, or finally able to see, 
that I'm what  you need and 
with me you should be.
Your ex's are nothing , is that 
what you want?
Thought I was first in the heart,  
thought I was the one.
Did I move to fast? Were you  
really not ready? How long 
have you  felt this way? 
Thought I made you happy!
Thought we were on the same 
page, I thought we felt the 
same. 
While your losing no sleep, I 
fight through the pain. 
Got me all stressed out, Tryna 
fight back the tears.
While your heart is else where, 
I'm fighting for it to be here.
Putting up this big fight cause I 
don't wanna lose you, it seems 
your looking else where while 
I'm still trying to choose you. 
I'm all wrapped up, you got a 
girl Tripping, I let my guard 
down, yes you caught me 
slipping. 
Three years we've  been in this, 
so why throw it away? 
My heart's shattered to pieces, 
come make it okay.
Why aren't u scared to lose me, 
did I mean anything?
Set your  pride aside for a min, 
I mean do u feel the same?
Do u feel like I've rushed this, 
like I've rushed us? 
Please answer my questions, 
boy I
love you so much. 
I just want you to hold me and 
make me feel safe.
I want you to fight too, do what 
ever it takes.
Are you really waiting just for 
me to get better.
Is that really the truth? We 
really can't be together?
I'm asking these questions 
cause I gotta know, was it not 
that deep for you to just let us 
go? 
All these un-answered 
questions, please just give a 
reply.
Please don't tell me " nothing" 
when I'm asking you" why"?
I love you so much and your 
blind to the facts, I'm the ride 
or die girl, like I'm where it's 
at.

A Birthday Poem for PAP

You had my heart from the start
Your the only man that will never break my heart
Your the perfect PAP a man could be 
With guidance, wisdom and integrity

Your always there when I call 
You come running know matter how big or small
Even-though I've let you down
Your always there with a smile
You give my heart so much joy
Loving you I want nothing more

You've never changed your grateful ways
I LOVE YOU more than words can say
I hope you have a blessed day 
With all my LOVE HAPPY BIRTHDAY

RAPE

I HAVE RESOLVED TODAY!!!

to never do anything that will not edify.
or say a word that will not dignify.
to respect every woman as member of the opposite sex.
and never treat a woman as an object of sex.


I HAVE RESOLVED TODAY!!!

never to look at a woman with lust
or look at her breast as object of lust.
that though a woman may have a very big breast.
i will never stare or oogle at that very big breast.


I HAVE RESOLVED TODAY!!!

that no woman should ever be raped.
for every woman has a right not to be raped.
that every woman has to right to say no.
and when a woman says no, it means no.

A Love Story in ABC format

All I will say is how I did my best ever day to say you are my love
Before I go to bed and before I wake up I pray above
Cluing you with the best of my affections that I hope you see
Did you know that everyday I look at you my day is pleasant and that is the key 
Everyone that knows me knows that you are the one for me
Friends and family love you as much as I expect to be
Going forward with all my heart I give you my love unexpectedly
Holding your hand while walking and whispering to your ear I love unconditionally
In my heart I expect in return is a smile of faith
Just when we look into each others eyes in love we bathe
Kindly we speak to each other with passion
Life we have together we love our every hug and kisses in occasions

Strings

Almost too disgusting to look at
Bleehh they're so nasty!
Change is soon to come
Delight rushing through my veins
Excitement for the sound still unknown
Feeling the crispness of the new metal
Getting the cords and pedal ready..
Here goes nothing

Broken Alone

Broken Alone, 
not enough support,
to much weight,
so easy to hate,
little choices,
to much time,
 everywhere I turn,
no one to find,
left alone,
in the dark,
suffering great,
for me,
to late,
what's done is done,
no turning back,
alone again,
I see the crack,
in my soul,
I bear it for you,
but your not there,
were you ever?,
it's been so long,
I am not sure,
stuck alone,
hurt's to the core,
take the blame,
I can't deny,
such great shame,
still can't cry,
in my mind,
I walk an empty road,
Forever alone,
your secret showed,
always had my doubts ,
about your faith,
kept my eye's closed,
to your disgrace,
can't be surprised,
I saw it coming,
don't know what to do,
filled with fear,
The only one I trust, end could be near,
feel heavy,
cross to bear,
must find someone,
willing to share,
fooled myself,
too many times,
to many miles,
no more fake smiles,
numb to pain,
can not gain,
numb to all,
I've hit the wall,
scared and alone,
I don't want to bear it,
for him back,
I'd kill I swear it,
the only one who truly cared,
I pray I find you everyday,
yours alone my heart not shared,
thought I had another,
her beauty shined,
her heart divided,
can't be mine,
tried to take you,
maybe waited to long,
when I'm gone,
this is your song,
her house divided,
I could not stand,
when you cried,
I should've held your hand,
can not blame you,
I know I've shamed you,
waited to long,
another sad song,
saw you as perfect,
or am I blind?,
can't commit,one more kind,
I quit,
for good,
wish you would come to me,
I know that song,
but can't remember the words,
its our song,
As I lay you down,
fly away,
here I come,
are you there,
will you run,
down that empty road,
its just me,
I hope you'll come,
this time I'll let you see,
last chance,
I'll throw you a bone,
until we meet,
I'll stay Broken Alone.

Something Wild

That fugitive dream 
of shrinkage :
a room in a room
a door in a door.
You were hurting the house affairs 
at midnight.

The space accident 
starts dismanteling the life.
Selective pain 
comes again.
You start distancing from story touch, 
long vision.

The canary brings down 
the roof. Somebody was leaving.
The eyes will search another sky,
another tree.
In a light slumber 
another fall from the perch.

MAY I SAY

At ethnic moment
on the moonfront, artless impressionists
of parallel conflicts with anxious looks
come to share the self realized truth
of mangled uncertainties,

watching your own dead body :
small chicks huddle together for contemporary
thoughts of violence-to kill or not to kill-
humanity walks with bent head
listening nothing:

I am desperate, the moon was stone faced
black holes bleed and throw the crystals
of red light: drop your pen and hold the death
on doorway, morning wind was coming
from the seaside:


for dissolution of your ego, I would go for a long swim.

SWARMING

A solid belief of karmic influence becomes
fluidus
but life was questioning again.

You take to wars
with thousand of nukes:
still the daffodils were dancing.

Float me on the bodies of bullet ridden
moons and clouds:
the red river, spiteful, has changed the course.

Ah, the snaky hate
hisses with split tongue.
Mockery of towers plays again.

The dumb leather did not forget
the shape of the baby.
million needles were still crawling. 

Thick boundaries were steaming hard.
All nipples, no furs to walk
on the flames.

Camouflage

Army suits they wore at war.
Butterflies flying at the bar.
Change their colors like cheetahs and cats.
Dark comes i'm scared of bats.
Easy for them on hide and seek.
Find them not, i'm getting weak.
Giant trees you see in the forest.
Hidden with dangerous beast. 
Iguana and giraffe are endangered species.
Jaguars are strong can't torn them into pieces.
King of animals they are lions.
Like leopards they are union.
Makes me sick, makes me confuse.
Nothing i can do makes me anxious.
On that wall a beautiful woman.
Pink and silver she's holding a fan.
Queen Elizabeth looks not for me.
Reminiscence of Helen is what i see.
Teary eyes, you can't refuse.
Unidentified, i'm confuse.
Very concealing but amazing.
With your color so exaggerating.
Xenon is weakly interacting.
You beautiful creatures get some rest. 
zebras and tigers are the best.

Can You Decipher The Message?

During my sleepless nights I often daydream of my dreams,
Each of those fantasies then turn into your face as if you're the theme.
Standing...sitting...holding you puts my mind in a completely different universe,
These feelings I have for you has affects quite opposite of a curse.
Intentionally you see my soul for what it truly can be and already is,
Never would I have thought someone as majestic as you could rid the pain in my heart with
a graceful bliss.
Yet night after night I ponder to myself if you could possibly unlock my heart with a
simple kiss.

Anticipation drives my imagination with an illusion that forms a puzzle that needs to be
put together,
Which in this form of fashion you are the pieces that could make me better.
Are you aware of how sincerely honored I would be to be put on the path of becoming your man?
Is there any logic that could prevent me from attaining that form causing me to become
instead more worthless than sand?
This is just the beginning of my affection and can continue if you'll have me as much as I
want you,
Stay in tune with my mind cause it seems ours have a small connection...so how about you
tell me if I want you as bad as I'm telling you.

Coward

People want to commit suicide,
people choose to die over livin life.
Why has it come to be this way?
Why has this life become so meaningless,
that we just want to throw it away?
We become selfish and think our life is so bad,
dont think of others who's lives are worse, But still greatful for what they have.
People take for granted the things they've got,
clothes, food, smokes and shoes, even a roof or a bed,
They dont think of the homeless,
the hungry, not even the cold or the hot.
They just think they want to be dead,
Things happen in our lives that, to us, seem bad.
We dont look for help or trust any "friends"
All because of the past we've had.
Dont be a coward and run away,
Stick it out, Live life,
I know that there's alot of strife,
But stick it through day to day.
People want to commit suicide,
people choose to die over livin life.
Why has it come to be this way?....

life alone

life alone is bitter and cold
with no one to love no one to hold 
the long dark nights waking up on your own 
got money to spend but no one to phone 
to live like this 
to die with my shame 
to have love for so many with nothing to gain 
but where all born with a purpous reason for life 
but mine has been shattered like the shine off a knife
say the meaning of life and it looses its shine 
no one can own it to me it is all mine 
can life be this cruel or is it just me 
ive lost the way to my heart and i cant find the key 
to write all my feelings to write all my pain 
my heart is now empty cold like the nigh rain 
but we all must be love to be loved and forgotten 
to be buried six feet under and left to go rotten 
although i am 20 and my life is ahead 
but my pain will go on until i am dead

No Harm

People usually say third time's the charm
But hey, i don't think second time's any harm
I know I'm tripping all over again
Yes, i think its a never ending ride on a train
The train of love
Maybe it's a curse from above?

Cupid's got my head spinning
But this time I'm not losing I'm winning
I barley have time for feeling regret
I won't believe this love is a threat

Completely letting go of my past
Whatever happened, I'm glad it didn't last
I'm a happier person now
For someone to change that, i wont allow

Screw friends, i believe they're all fake
Most of them can't wait for my heart to break
They're trying to make me feel miserable
But doing that, no they won't be able 

One person only matters to me
In my life i hope he will always be
A person that's perfect
That's too good to be true
Without him, what will happen? i have no clue

The best part of my life, for a fact i know
He's the person that caught my heart at "Hello"

sit high, feel low

Sit high, 
Feel low,  
Stars of dust,
That's how I know.

I have confirmation, 
Of my form that is,
Now sit back, 
And observe me live.

My money is breathle$$,
My wage is short,
But my emotion is torn,
And my throne is half court.

See,
You may not understand,
If you don't know your surroundings,
This is my land, and this is your land. 

I've changed lives, 
And hung on,
Wow,
Is what they should call me,  from now on. 

Can't poverty and disgust,
Replace your value,
Or is your mind,
Unable to tell how to,
Jump boundaries,
from half court, 
Rule a nation,
And still love them without their support.

It's the strength in our numbers,
Cash in our name, 
The love of our talents,
And the power within chains.

River Moons

THE DOUBLE moon, one on the high back drop of the west, one on the curve of the river face,
The sky moon of fire and the river moon of water, I am taking these home in a basket, hung on an elbow, such a teeny weeny elbow, in my head.
I saw them last night, a cradle moon, two horns of a moon, such an early hopeful moon, such a child’s moon for all young hearts to make a picture of.
The river—I remember this like a picture—the river was the upper twist of a written question mark.
I know now it takes many many years to write a river, a twist of water asking a question.
And white stars moved when the moon moved, and one red star kept burning, and the Big Dipper was almost overhead.

The ''HEART'' Never Lies

As we all know life is very amuzing  fascinating and amazing
When you meet someone for the first time and your
Sense of attraction captures that person it's a feeling that
Only those who has really and truly been in love
Before can understand,it can be just as simple as
A fragrance hair style smile touch look mood  humor personality
Now here it comes to let the other know
For some it is not easy at all to do 
You wonder if he or she is really in to you
But never doubt yourself always take a chance on love
Because you will know the time and place because love don't lie
Before you make eye contact all kinds of emotions take place
This emotion is called cold feet it happens a lot
Do not be embarrassed we all go through it
Now when you do make eye contact with the person
And you two are face to face alone
And it is time to express what you feel
The''Heart''Never Lies and tremors come over your body
Your heart beats so loud that  it is the only thing you hear
It makes your lips tremble as the words come out of your mouth
You feel so embarrassed because of your emotions
But little did you know that they felt the same way too
You wouldn't know because your heart was beating so loud
That you were not able to hear theirs either
That is why we came to the conclusion of saying that
The''HEART''Never Lies!

SCARY DANCE

Immersion in a regal 
carnage. Ash colored dawn
was gang-raped.

A bullet-ridden sexism 
shuts out the fame.
Starts a chilling confession.

O, my orion

Sunflower, why your

in bonfire of a moon ?

They came for a sexual 
encounter. But found a prism
exacting a gun.

Oh wonder of light
How you shine
On this night

In a stable upon this morn
A baby child was born
Speak heavenly dreams

CLOUDS AND ROADS

On a sizzling riverbed, how many suicides
will make up the loss of a green moon ? Must 
we count our rags in sleep ? Victims of a 
manipulated music of bricks !

I thought, I will give you more, taking 
less of you , have finally laid to rest the attacking
needles in the black holes of flesh. In rains we
will cry endlessly.

Another promise broken, would watch the stars
to set forth the eggs. A melon sweetens the
tongue of dissenters and robes are taken
off after the helicopter crash.

On the palms opium grows, bubbles learn
to float with the words of priests who were
reciting hymns to anoint the new incumbent,
will start the black magic again for mass slimming.

ONE SUMMER MOON

It was getting dark.
The silence starts speaking
to me in a whisper
for the sake of secrecy.

Right now, 
the violence will start
between the summer night
and a brilliant moon.
I sit in a corner
to watch the milk spilling.

And then, after couple of hours
an anonymous call from
a cuckoo in distress. Somewhere
a dry twig snaps off. Something 
is tossed in air. A shadow pokes
at moon to return the favour.

The dawn, drops the veil !

THE WARS

An explosive denial
of an infinite firmness

Why were you taking

The suicide bomber was

When a poem leaves you, 
how far would you go to kill
a blue jay

A SECRET SELF

Every night this body
becomes a dissecting knife

a crime scene of blood
and unstrung flesh,

the lamb spreads the wool
for a deadly charge of skull plate

with a gift of mathematics

of tortured chemistry :

the endless nothing will kiss the darkness

AMEN

I would give anything to die
in you, in your belly,
innocently. My voice of dissent
should hold the wings atop the kisses.

The wards in between fall on
choked Eustachian. A global grief
encircles the fallen gods, prophets
of sins.

My other self silently awakens me,
this very night as I swallow my pride
and walk through the corridors of childhood
to learn again the alphabet of death.

The shadows are lengthening.
One by one the friends have departed.
The hour of loneliness was stretching.
So it be!

THE GOODBYE

A marble calm under the shaky gaze
was parsing the human pain. I would
lift the calculated grief from folded earth.

You feel badly bruised and racial war
becomes anathema. Past the age eyesight dwindles,
cannot identify the faces of dead.


O my God ! Bizarred bloated eyes filled
with blood were groping for the fallen walls.
Who had dug the garden with grenades ?

A theme hunger separates the hearts. When
desert was the bed for daughters and sons,
the fathers were shaking with hate.

The shine wears off the love. A different world
under the lids. Miracle does not happen.
We were searching for the doors.

Sunset

I don’t want this to end, don’t want to end up alone
Seeing the beauty of the sun and the bluest sky come together before night
My mind at grace my smile showing through the frail frown
Colors collide ever so blissfully I am in harmony 
Hope this feeling will never fade away
I don’t want to be left in the darkness to come
Wish the sunset would stay forever at this moment
This is one moment I love to gaze into the sky
With love filling my heart sorrows turn away
Air is calm and breezy just like a good time at ease
Every time I see that sunset
I will know there is still hope for me
And when the sunset goes away
I will be safe into night
Cause I have faith with love
And with the sunset I will shine like the stars in the sky

have you ever!

have you ever loved someone 
so much you forget what they've done,
have you ever tried to sleep at night
but you hope and pray everything is alight,
have you ever found your one true love 
the one they say is from above ,
have you ever been turn apart 
have you ever been hurt in the heart ,
have you ever been hurt so much
that because of them you are scared to touch,
have you ever tried to talk 
but your heart says to walk ,
have you ever not known what to do
or know what is best for you,
have you ever tried to walk away
but heat says to stay,
this is how you will feel
if you don'know your love is real,

true love

	When I first held you its like nothing else mattered. But when you left its like the 
world stop spinning because my heart couldn’t breathe without yours.. My love for you was 
so strong that you made roses pedals and sparkle on the ground, the wind would breeze by 
me with cheerful love and joy, when I hold you my mind explodes on smiles and deep less 
thoughts. When we die I want to hold you so our hearts connect and can never be apart. 
When I see you I always see a light from the sky, your like an angel coming to save me, but 
your heart will never leave me. You’re my true love, my heartless soul


	When were together its like nothing else matters, my love for you is strong and 
welded, my blood thickens and warms at the sight of you, your hugs fill me with everlasting 
love and nobody will ever take that away. When we die I was parish you and your soul and 
be with you eternity, the sight of you makes the clouds form a heart of love. My mind goes 
crazy just to think of you, my heart beats faster and never wants to stop beating for 
you.. .you should be like your soul is my soul and without you my soul would be in the dark 
abyss I love you

BOUND BY CEILING

Sitting at the edge of a bubble
uncooled, trying to light an eternal flame of anonymity;
counter the  wrangler, one skull in each hand,

the umbilical cord.

Ostracized, you forge the ariel in arid zone,
burned, one patch on the eye, rubber thighs,
sniped at, lay still in a pool of blood,
in cauldron of terror, the brilliance of sun cracks
the marble statues.

Avarice of black boots mirrors the borewell;
washes out the color of smiles on blue lips.
Fireflies sink in darkness of punishment.

It's Not A Party Without Music

It's not a party without music.
No special events of amusement.
No voices of joy, that laugh out loud.
No dancing feet, to hype the crowd.
clapping shoes against the floor, 
sounds of life, screaming for more.
Hands in the air, I can reassure.
"It's not a party without music".
No monopoly, no spades, 
no poker, no charades.
No poetry to recite,
no beautiful bright lights.
"What is a song,
with no one to write"?
It just doesn't seem right.
"It's not a party, without music".
No down home cooking
to hit the spot.
No special guest, that mean alot.
No beats against the walls,
that knock.
"It's not a party without music"!
"It's just not"......

Doubtfull Goodbye

As you read my mind you sing our song for the last time 
I realize why I fight through all the lies 
And jumped through your impossible hoops
For your voice brings me peace in a world full of war 
And your touch slowly creeps 
On a heart with ice to its core 
You stare into my eyes with love you can no longer hide
And for a moment I forgot this was good bye 
As my heart longs for your kiss
You remind me that my thoughts are not just my own 
And you kiss me like your heart has finally found its home.
The thought of this being the last slips away 
As hope burns through my brain 
You hold me like I'm your dying wish
Reality falls on me like a ton of bricks 
As we pull away, and your words that brought me peace
Sends me to a dark obis 
I love you baby I promise I do 
But I love her too goodbye

Daydream

Once upon a time there was a girl
who dreamed of a fancy houses and a peaceful world
Blue, purple , and pink flowers along the street 
Right where night and day meet
The spray of fluffy white seeds from
dandelions sprinkle the air
Sweet spring breeze blowing through my hair
The soft touch of the sun against my face warms my nose
The unmistakable smell of a rose
I feel myself drifting to a daze
Daydreaming it'll be my turn someday
to go to the big city
Where the flashing lights and action show no pity
Or maybe the  islands
Drink pi na~colada until my body and relaxation make mends
Melting as a fine brother caresses  my hand
And takes me down the beach
As far as the sunshine will reach
Daydreams, night dreams
Let's wake up to see what my dreams will redeem

Taking chances

Time it passes without any warning
I remember when I had a lot of hair
In a flash the hair is all gone
It isn’t much any more
It’s all grey now
Time hmm it flies just like that
People leave lives that is not there’s
There is a voice behind
Other times is a voice and a hand behind
Sadly it doesn’t belong to them
They never have the guts to live out their lives
Time oh time you cannot pause it neither can you live two lives
Again you are all grey before you know it
I used to wonder what people will say
What they will think
I also used to think who likes me and who doesn’t
But forty years has passed and I look around and discover nobody gives a shit
Your destiny is like a personal horse
Ride it to destination
Conquer fear and you will discover hidden strengths and talents
What else can I say?
Falling in love is personal but don’t give your heart to a fool
I also threw away time falling in love stupidly
But I gained wisdom and I value self more
The door of my life now has heart breaking detectors
It can even detect fake manipulative people who have no business around me
I just graduated from school of wisdom
A school of patience
They say time heals all wounds
But leaves behind fresh scars as fresh as the original wound
Live your life; make your own personal choices 
Even Gods leading expects you the recipient of the blessing to take action
Leading of God is action not inertia
No invention can pause time at least for now it’s an impossibility
Waste no more time
Pursue your dreams, live out your dreams
Open the window of courage and throw away fear
Open the door of hope and send hopelessness packing
Your dreams will not come to you go and grab it
Conquer your inhibitions set yourself free
Free from life controllers and manipulators
From people that use people
It’s a fallacy to think everybody loves you
Life is a mixture of haters and lovers
Builders and destroyers
Light and darkness 
Choose your side of the divide
Decide decide decide
Time is passing
Indecision is same as time wasted
There is nothing as sweet as living out your dream life
What are you doing where you are not celebrated?
What are you doing with people who don’t like you?
It’s never too late to start all over
Never too late to start living your life
But don’t wait till the end
To be alive is a great thing
But to live your life is greater
Much better when you don’t follow the crowd
For only the outstanding stand out

Frivolous Chase

All eye admiration flood upon your presence
Beyond words, this mind bleeds,
Crushed by your metaphysical yet practical brilliance
Deafened by the hilarity of your quirks
Envying those that may embellish in your jests
Frozen in tears where the past brings smiles
Groveling beside the untouched potential 
How is it you excel among such fetid company?
Initiating your moon-shines like the sun is your god
Jumping jacks pounding these ever depressing soles 
Kittling the fingertips mindfully so 
Lackadaisically glancing upon our stranger-friend relationship
Mustering the audacity to surmount your eccentricities  
No one could ever quite notice before
Opulent in knowing you have captured so many 
Pained inside to the very last penny
Quenched from courage, I remain caged in your glory
Rabid to agitate your unacquainted waters  
Suckling upon the overflow—
The leftovers that offer richness I will never know
Understanding you wholeheartedly—I quiver
Violated by the comfort tease of your words
Wondering how love can surface upon unsteady oceans
X chromosome searching for a sharp fool within a current of chaos
Y chromosome spinning, slightly hidden with a small, sparkly smile
Zealous in the frivolous chase—I was latched from the start

MY HEART

My heart, so broken and unsure
So scared, so young and still so pure
It's been hurt and damaged so many times
Ripped apart, shattered and heard so many lies
Tired of trusting, afraid to care
Just once would like to find someone who'd be there
To simply listen and understand
My wants, My needs and All My plans
Can't let anyone in, but still can't let go
Afraid from the past, worried of what the future beholds
So I'll shelter my heart in every way I can
So it could never cry or hurt again

The Tin Man

The tin man,
is who I want to be
Your words wouldn't hurt me
No pain would I feel
No tears would I cry

When the sun didnt shine
The birds didnt sing
And raindrops fell all about me
I wouldnt really care
I'd have no heart you see

When you didnt call
Or I caught you in a lie
No teardrops would fall
My heart wouldnt break
I wouldnt really care at all

I'd sleep the whole night through
No sad lonely dreams of you
No endless days of pain
Everyday would be the same

Yes the Tin Mans who I want to be
Please, Mr. Wizard No Heart for me!

My mind and heart are at war

MY heart and mind are at war
My heart and my mind are at war,
Body and soul lost between the hate,
Confused and hurt not knowing what for,
They pull, twist and fight to escape,
The battle of pain sweat and tears,
Caught in the midst of heartache,
My soul breaks free and leaves behind its fears,
The pain is too much for my body to take,
I built a wall and smashed it to dust,
For another, but for what,
I lost my faith and lost her touch,
I am soulless standing here stuck,
My mind has won this war,
My heart damaged and broke,
Still not knowing what for,
I pray and i still hope,
That this war will end,
And mind and heart will coincide,
Hoping my soul and body will mend,
For the rest of me has already died
I am done with the pain of passion,
And done with the love of pain,
All i here is my hearts door's crashing,
For this is what makes a man go insane,
I felt her love i loved her touch,
I kissed her lips and she kissed my heart,
Now this feeling, i feel too much,
Now it’s time for my mind and heart to part,
I will see her eyes in the moon lit sky,
Her beauty in a sky of wonder,
I will shed one tear and let the pain die,
As i lay awake in a world of loveless slumber
The illusions of love corrupted my mind,
The confusion of passion clouded my eyes,
The death of my heart came soon this time,
So now i will love in a world of my demise,
You can’t feel this pain that i feel,
I am done trying and this time i am,
When i write i write what’s real,
So now can you see why my soul ran?
Can you stop and wonder,
How i made it so far, with so much pain,
Can you here my heart crack with thunder,
And can you see i live in a world of rain,
 I have sought love found it and lost i
I am tired of pain.  so tired my heart is exhausted
i am done now if she comes back then i am here,
if not like i said i have shed my one and only tear

Love Pain

Announcing my return

Before I see you leave

Cuddled up in my thoughts

Delirious with your name

Enigmatic beauty

Feeding on my dreams

Going out of my way to give you anything

Hearing your soft voice brings...

Inklings of you in my head

Juxtapose our differences again

Killing my very heart

Loving me can be so hard?

Merging hearts, you won't do

Now all I have is an image of you

Opulence has blinded you

Prevented You from seeing ME

Quixote's madness seems to be my friend

Reminded of you in everything

Seeing my heart ripped like this

Torn like an expensive fabric

Ubiquitous pain; Love is

Venting out my frustration anyway I can

Waiting for the day you notice me

X-rays of my heart show the truth

Yearning for your love;would be too late when I reach the

Zenith of my career

Dance

Take your hand and put it out forward,
Than swing out out to the side, c'mon don't be a coward. 
This is fun, now swing your hips from side to side,
Remember all the times you couldnt express yourself and you cried.

But now your can swing your legs and feet any way you want,
Look for that new move that you looked for your whole life like a hunt. 
Grab someone by the hand and let them join you in that awesome moment,
I promise you, you will love this feeling you are about to feel.

Turn up the music and dance your heart out,
Move to the beat and go wild and feel like your out of sight. 
This is your moment, don't let anyone take that away for you,
This is not happening too slow and i tell you that that's the truth.

Put some head phones on and go to your own world of greatness,
Bust a move like you never did before, I promise it's harmless.
Make your heart feel what I am feling right now and take my hand,
I promise that I will make you smile and scream with joy and stand.

GROWING HEART

Could it be that you were right?
I have discovered I do have a heart.
Can it be that you are my version of Lil' Cindy Lu Who.
Whose singing is making my tiny Grinch's heart begin to grow.
My eyes see brighter.
I can feel once again.
My steps have quickened.
I find I have a place to go, a heart to share.
My laughter catching.
Making sadness a memory for those willing to listen.
I smile in rapid succession, exposing the sparkles that fly from my eyes.
Even the weight that sits on my shoulders is beginning to lift.
Like a magic trick it is disappearing.
Who knew there where such things as a good poison for your soul.
With the poisons from the light that is growing in my soul.
The sorrow that was residing has begun to die away.
My morphing is changing me into what a real heart should be.
I need now to create a recipe.
Feed it to the populations.
So they too can feel their Grinch's heart growing.

IN A TENT VILLAGE

you walk on wodden legs
a lump in breast, though benign
but kids are abducted from wombs;
a road map is spread on the dirty mat
for finding the missing link,
while a solid-fuel missile was ready
to be launched

scarlet lips for décor,
unwanted hairs on chin popping out,
archipelago of hawks in brain:
the vulnerable, tending their wounds, hiding
in tunnels of shame; I like  black berries
in sleep, cannot listen my own voice,
have become blind for my own hands

dried stigmas of crocus will color my
obscene poverty orange-yellow, slum
rain, no place to sit, old memories are coming back
I am unstuck from a wheelchair

Karma

It's all too familiar
What I once previously put into the universe
Sent out toward another 
I now feel
Roles reverse; I wear the victims shoes
Something I did not choose
His heart had taken its toll
I fall victim to this heartache
Fustrated, my emotions run rampid
Is this what I made him feel like?
Looking back on the feelings he expressed are all to familiar to how I feel now
Im scared of these feelings that take over my body
Uncontrollably, I force myself avoiding that path
I stand at the fork in the road, curiousity arises within
My mind wanders, I must see what it is like
I attempt and nothing
The frustration builds more and more
It hurts 
How could I have made him feel this way
Karma has arisen 
What I sent out into the universe has made its way back around toward me
Karmas a bitch
He said I would one day understand
I do now
& Im sorry

DARKNESS AT NOON

Tousling the opulence was
not modesty.
Who will adore the clan ?

I am not yet ‘me’, 
the refuge of elevated moon.
The heat and dust of nascent money 

was burning like a loud prayer 
in dark sun. Perfection tends
to terrify the stings.

A mogul of arts outlines the 
script of drowning a desert storm,
when two flames went to bed.

Do not pick up the nails for 
the coffin of a martyr.
They are going to make a dirty bomb.

I feel my heart is breaking
all because of my mistaking
I guess I wasnt good enough.

I feel my heart is going faster

All I want is to have you back.

You wanted her instead of me
I guess I should just let it be
the words you said are killing me.


Perhaps it wasn't meant to be.

The Hole In My Heart

I wanted so to find my Fate,
Fall in love, and name a date
I looked each and every day,
And at night I'd kneel to pray
Then I thought I'd found the one,
But now I see it was all in fun
Why couldn't you just be real,
By telling me how you really feel?

I never even once lied to you,
Instead, I believed you wanted me too
Now, my heart is broken in two,
Because of what you chose to do
Was it easier for you to have lied,
And have your brother tell me you died?
Thanks so much for hurting my soul,
Now my heart has a great big hole

To Find A Cure?

Do you want to live or die?
Think of this as you seek a reply
Wouldn't you try and find a cure,
Just so you could be sure?
Listen to your inner voice,
Then make the right choice
Because life is worth the living
More so than dying

Think of your loved ones,
And the life that's still to come
For you are my blood, my family
And you mean the world to me
If I lose you now,
I'll have to go on somehow
I've loved you my whole life long,
And don't want you to be gone

Dedicated to my Uncle Jim, who was hospitalized on Friday the 6th.  He bled internally, and 
needed 5-6 pints of blood replaced.  He also was on a resperator, and his heart only had 
20% usage.  He had pnenomunia too.  The doctors think he has an ulcer.  He was almost 
dead when he was admitted.  He was realeased on Friday the 13th, but refuses to have a 
colonoscopy, and a heart cahterization done.  He has been prescribed medications, but will 
not take them.  He doesn't like doctors, and hasn't seen one in a long time, over 30 years.  
He is only 60 years old.  He is planning on returning to work at GM today, 3-16-09.

DUMBFOUNDED

A blacksmith exploded a missile 
at  point-blank
to lower the animal
in a candid manner.
So close that truth went brute.

Nativity of a patriarch
was challenged.
The birds had migrated a long distance
to find the water.
The doors remained unlocked. 

An apology for the flesh. Bones 
had exited long back. Sermon

Night was very black.
Aphonia was the word.

What is love

What is love but a state of mind,
 a wish the heart makes?
Why is that  in a moment of time,
 a person's heart can break,
A passion like no other,
 a pain deeper then the ocean,
A feeling that takes another,
 to embrace such an emotion,

What is love but a false promise
 a painful demise?
In a blink of the eye,
 we fall into its disguise
Heartbroken and alone
 we all seek what the heart desires,
we seek a true love
and spark to light the soul’s fire,

The Voices of the Soul- Poetry

The voices of the soul (poetry)

Noteless music no less harmony in its melody,
Body motionless only the heart may dance, 
Satiety to her crave a dose of ecstacy,
The magic of the art unveiled.

The poets mind out of the box, what box!
Eternal fires to brighten this darkening land of ours,
Counterpart of science reveal the mystery in truth,
A prism to once thought pure white.

Words in poetry so relaxing breathing is  toil,
Syllables so calming the heart too loud,
Truly flesh is lease, a soulbeing,
Free your mind and come along.

A walk through the universe, mind as swift as light,
My view likewise the eagle's all problems solved.
I return home new hope and more,
There's more to life my eyes have seen.

Shattered

Shattered
I really should be sleeping
But I cannot
Two years ago we met and my heart skipped a beat
Two years later we meet again and it still skips a beat
Yet you remain the same in your stance
Don’t know why I ever hoped we could stand a chance
It was wrong of me to  believe and hope in an us
It was even  stupider of me to have given you my trust
And its even dumber of me to believe that you who felt so right
Would actually care
Now I’m sleepless
And Im sure your with  your mistress
I think I could love you but I’m not sure
With my heart shattered on the empty floor
You don’t care I know
And these pieces,oh no, they can’t be fixed
I’m shattered and I cant cry
I’m shattered and I know why
It’s because I was too stupid to even have tried.
You’ve broken  this heart
Again 
Again 
And Again
Why cant this just be like in the movies
Where I write
The End?

took her without ma heart to 
warn......

In ma silent mode love was 
blamed,,,,in ma heart is 
written her name.....with a 
broken heart in same.....

In ma promises death made 
me a failure,i losted ma pride 
in fear with tears like am 
inferior....pains penetrates 
ma heart like invador....for 
how long will i mourn ma joy in 
ma insure?......death pains ma 
joy without a means to 
cure.....where is love to plant 
her name in ma memory with 
everlasting manure....to 
control ma brain like 
braintumor?

This i wish,yet ma heart pays 
the pains and tears on every 
unknown year we 
breach.....tell me love in your 
surge,pray for ma days in 
worth,,manage ma sorrow 
when am not,then i will give 
you the reasons why she was 
not....i never meant that was 
her fault,yet death proved i 
wrong....because i never for a 
moment express what she 
worth...

Gold,diamond,petals worth 
nothing at all-when the 
greatest value of ma life 
recently ran to dust....in ma 
abscent without a last 
talk......what an empty world i 
found maself with no one 
else to talk...death did me a 
big favor in his thought..........

We Are The Sunset

Im all his and hes all mine
Together we spend all our time
This is it were in our prime
Minds linked to one another
Bodies may go their seperate ways when desired
Come home to eachother 
The love undescribable
The freedom; limitless
Mental connection unimaginable
Understanding at its highest peak
Feelings so strong, unbreakable
One incapable to fathum the idea of our bond
Night and day, yet we are the sunset
Separate lives, yet we are one; a strong unit between sun and moon
We set the mood; new style of living
Within the depths of an ocean; a relationship 
While swimming freely throughout the sea of fishes; solitary
It's what many covet
This fire of love for one another so strong, we set eachother free in the same 
breath
A form of happiness higher than whats considered happy.

Falling with broken wings



                  Falling
.by Heather Jacobs on Saturday, 18 June 2011 at 13:23.Falling with broken wings


Torn apart at the seams

Been shot down again and I’m

Losing the heart of my dreams


 

I leave no trace in the ground

When I hit rock bottom

I hear them screaming -

“I know I got ‘em!”

 

 
 

My feet are bleeding

And I have to keep running

Words whispered to me

Aren’t you oh so cunning?

 

 

 

My heart is panicking

Trying to escape its prison

I feel it stop beating

Everything’s fading from vision

 

 

 

It’s lonely down here

As I scream your name

I curse myself for thinking

This was more than a game

 

 

 

Face down in the dirt

Coughing up your lies

I choke on the pain

And slowly close my eyes

A FRIGHTENING DREAM

After a sacred kill
you thrived in scriptures.
Many centuries have passed for us
living without you.
Thyme will preserve you body,
your brain, syndrome, for our children.

When the apocalypse starts,
Arctica would keep the seeds, grains, alive
and every death will be accounted for.
From mars the ice will come.
And people will bow before
the chariot of sun for breaking the stars.

Why the sadness is pouring?
I was not afraid of falling saints,
of big poles, but the masks of bones and skull.
Those veils are burning. The grandmothers
look at the blue sky and again we are
distributing our secrets to poor.

Lord
He left me 
Oh my lord why
When my heart was full of love 
That what my heart felt
Til now my lord
The pain just won't disappear
My heart won't be able to love again
My heart is bleeding 
My heart is crying 
Oh my lord why
My heart is dying
There no more love
Inside the beat has stop
My heart has turn into stone
The light of my heart 
Can't you see my lord
The light of my heart faded  away.

True loves heart pound

Forbidden feelings I know too well
A glance to me
Communication only I can see
Jealousy
Or a love thats only too real
Time is ending and my thoughts circle you 
For I know my dream will never be true
As I walk away on that dreaded day 
The reality of never seeing those green eyes staring back at me 
Haunts my every step
Is this something I can truely live with
Leaving the person I call home
Unspoken words only go so far 
But they can't stop me 
You look at me 
As I stare back at you 
Will you be the last to see though
The last I no longer have to hide from 
Am I the last one to understand you 
Why can't you say its true 
Why can't it be just me and you 
I fear when I fly away 
That it will be our last day 
I run towards you 
Wanting to tell you all that is true 
Yelling that I love you 
But I stand still 
And the thought of you just being a memory 
Rips though every part of me 
A fond time I call upon when my skies are gray 
Casting you, with all the others 
Knowing you are  so much better 
You asked me once if I would die for you
In a instance without thinking anything though 
I knew...The breathes you breathed were more important to me then to you
And I'm not just going to be losing a friend
I'm going to be losing a purpose
And the beginning to my end.
I remember the day you laid on my couch 
and asked me why we were this way 
I said cuz your my little brother and I love you 
I tucked you into bed 
And you sent me off with a kiss on the head
I remember the day your promised me the world
But all I wanted to say... Was your the only thing this world can give me or take away 
And the price I pay. I will bear and grit my teeth
As long as you are happy. 
Tears falling from your now gray eyes
When I told you that day. 
You said you dont know what to do. And how can I live without you
I don't no if I can leave you
No matter how much you dont want me too 
GOD just leave with me
Pack your things and start new 
just me and you
But dreams are for sleeping. Which I never do. 
So heart ach will be felt 
And I want you too feel the same too
But don't hurt I cant wish that on you
Just miss me and promise you'll never forget me 
Because I promise I will always truly and forever Love you.
And no pain will over come the day I walk away from you
God I pray he follows me 
But unanswered prays happen everyday 
So I'll accept the day I fly away 
Will be the last day 
Our eyes meet, The last day we say everything without a sound and the last day I hear true loves heart pound

Footprints in my heart

It should never end
Says this hungry heart of mine.
The lyrics and tunes keep ringing in my head
Even when though am put to rest


The list I've ever played is endless
As much as the sand which is countless
But many of them could not stand the light of day
And without regrets, I threw them away


But what is in this song
That I can see no wrong.
It has become a part of me
Or lets say taken over my whole being


This song will soon end
My heart bleats
But I must enjoy every bit of it
And this I know
That the song never stops down below

Contact

My God 
Help me to touch my rainbow 
Today I am feeling blue. 

Give me your hand to climb to the sky 
to see my life from an other site. 

Give me some colours 
To change my blue, 
To take the sorrows, 
To make new hopes 
For better tomorrows. 

Give me more sun to shine my soul 
To clean my fog,the blue never follows. 

I smile to you but I hide the cries 
That make my heart to close my eyes. 

I know the days will change my nights 
And give to my heart ten thousands smiles. 


My God 
Today I am feeling blue 
But I am not alone anymore. 
I hold your hand.

Life's hidden lessons

I married a man too early in life
and wasn’t prepared to be a good wife.
I believed he loved me and things would be fine.
My love for him would grow over time. 
The years passing by were good for awhile.
Then came a time I could not see my smile.
He cheated on me and I deserved more.
With a heavy heart I went out the door.
We parted as “friends”, which ended one day.
With a baby conceived he went on his way.
He now liked his freedom away from me.
I carried our son -- he didn’t want to see.
Soon after another cared about me; 
I ignored the things I didn’t want to see.
I married that man -- I thought it’d be best.
But soon after that, he was failing the test.
Driven by fear, I mistakenly thought
A son of “his own” was the thing that he sought
I now had a toddler and one on the way;
there was no doubt, I now had to stay.
Things started to spiral out of control.
The alcohol had a firm grip on his soul.
Choosing to leave to protect us all;
I was forced this time to really stand tall.
Now on my own with two children to raise
I examine my life in so many ways. 
My relationships failed, for that I am sad;
but the result of those could never be bad.
Now long gone are those men from my past
replaced by a “true” love that forever will last.
My love for my sons, my two little boys, 
erase all my pains and reveal only my joys.

LAKE SONG

Nothing makes or breaks now.
I will not know you
on the lake. The clouds and shoreline shudder.
There was no speck of endurance. The wind
falls with agonizing thud.

The dusk was hoisting the white waves.
Time to make peace.
Moon will make an appearance
with a veiled threat.

A bleached skeleton on the sand
wriggles to become alive
like the bitterness.

After a midnight death of a battered
probe, it was time to give a final call.
A fire will freeze like a rose
in the wraps of black waters.
The folk singer was coming.

black sun

The sky is red, the sun is black, im riding a roller coaster, but my mind is off track. Theres lots of ups and downs, smiles and frowns, even kings placing crowns on the heads of clowns. But I really don’t care, life isn’t fair, but gods given me a life I can hardly bear, every day I ask him, why cant you share? My life is going, I just don’t know where, because a life like mine is kind of rare. What do I do, while theres love in the air? Other people kiss while I just sit and stare, I look to my left, and theres nobody there, I look to my right, and theres a pair. The clouds are red, the rain is black, I may have left, but ill never be back, but what I can say is, theres nothing I lack. I look at the trees, I look at the sky, but what is the point when I just want to die? Why? Why do I try? When every time I fail, all I do is cry. And how can I be calm when im jealous of every guy? My heart is grounded, while my mind wants to fly, you can guess by what I write, that im also kind of shy, why do I need them? All they do is lie. I try to be nice, but they just punch me in the eye, and when im upset, all they do is pry. The clouds are blue, the sky is white, my mind is racing faster than the speed of light, my life just gets worse, but I still have to fight, why am I like this? Its just not right. Life is taller than me, im not its hight, I fly through the sky, gut still held to the ground, just like a kite, and why are people scared when they know I don’t bite? You can tell my whole life, just by what I write, I sleep during the day, and fly through the night, and im pushing a boulder with all my might. But im getting nowhere, my hands are bare, I love the dark, so give me a scare, I lost my mind and my soul, they were a pair. Sometimes I just sit, sit and think, think that I cant end up in the brink, my mind is empty and cold, like a skating rink, I don’t care if people say I stink, because I already know that im their main link, I have a cup, but nothing to drink, my mind wants to grow while my heart wants to shrink. The water is black, the sun is red, you cant kill something that’s already dead. I jump off the bridge, I take the dive, you cant kill something that was never alive. Im steering my life, but I don’t know how to drive…everything gets quiet when I arrive.  I live in a shack, I peek through the crack, and when I look outside, all I see is black…

the ugly truth

im the only one, whos accepted the truth, im as dull as a knife, but as sharp as a tooth, whatever i get, its my own special booth, im as dumb as a rock, but as smart as a sleuth. theres nobody for me, i dont even care, ive accepted the facts, cause life isnt fair, their hands are covered, while my hands are bare, if you think that im ugly, then why do you stare? i see a couple walk by, and my heart starts to tear, my alarm is still broken, so you wont hear it blare, im playing a game, its called truth vs. dare, im not part of the world, so i sit in my lair. i do not love, so i dont have to share, i will prove that im king, by becoming the mayor, everywhere i go, theres always a pair, ill just be by myself, while theres love in the air.

Walking with my demons

Before dawn my thoughts roam,
As day breaks my heart sleeps,
Thoughts of you, thoughts of home,
Coincide with my heart beats,
The malady of my soul,
The woe of my heart,
Now half once whole,
Consumed by the dark,
	As I walk with my demons,
Day after day my eyes grow cold,
My heart continues to freeze,
As I travel a darkened road,
I walk through a haunting breeze,
Overshadowed by the moonbeams,
Lost among the stars that I follow,
Faced with my hopeless dreams,
I feel myself become hollow,
	As I walk with my demons,
Surrounded by my nightmares,
The echoes of the past haunting me,
Confronted by cold dark stares,
Sorrows chuckle keeps taunting me,
Giving into the death of light,
Falling into the abyss of despair,
My heart is conflicted by this plight,
For I feel my soul start to tare,
	As I walk with my demons,
I become numb to my surroundings,
Oblivious of my shame,
This life is beyond confounding,
For it’s hard to live with the pain,
	Of walking with my demons

THE HEART NEVER LIES

I fallen every time I look into your eyes, I watch myself dwell into your eyes as I hear the music play the song that is our song, look deep inside my heart realize you could be my true love, but as look into my man eyes knowing he only want me and not one else but can take second love can goes so far and be understood by many but the question is, am  I the one for you while hear this song play in the next rom d you fall for me or am I just a friend of a friend, love can go so deep without realizing it true love , have you been in love if not if not you might be right now, have ever thought that you are in love, do you follow your heart when comes to love or do you just play around people feeling cause I don't play around with people feeling, do you tell people how you feel truthful about your feeling, or just say to yourself your in love no matter what and wait the right time to tell that man,

My Truth

My Truth


I am an original
My body, my diary,
my totem temple,
a living portrait
frozen in time.

Black ink flows as fluidly
as the lineage in my vein.
Every line, every curve
roams my ivory plane.

I cannot bow down
nor demur, I have
bared my soul indelibly.
My poetry in flesh.

Needled into skin
__love-erotic therapy.
Pain is my sacrifice
and I will bleed for
my truth.

IMAGES

anthills to natural selection, the sexual drive of a violenne;

invasive, brutal, the testosterone chasing wet thighs,
the night sweats. Kleptomania rising; castration

or helium filled masks for assisting suicides were 
mutilating genes. Multiasking for eugenics ? Hate and revenge

hangs a body on the turret of a tank, a wrong
for wrong. A little crown, winged pollens scattered

on brittle areola, the milky way shying away from midnight
sun. The toppled vision in blindness of a tribe

unearths the skeletons of mass murders; the
fanatics changing the face value of truths.

Images do not leave the temples.

Time To Reflect

Without a conscience, You feel no pain. How do you ever expect to gain? Your words hold no meaning, Your future not so bright. I wonder if you'll ever see the light. You don't seem to care about what's wrong or right. Have you no regrets for the things you say & do? It doesn't matter who gets hurt...As long as it's not you...
Your heart is soiled & your spirit weak, Why don't you keep the words you speak? Hate & anger runs through your blood, Swallowing you up like a flood. There's an emptiness in you, You try to deny. But why must others suffer for the pain you hold inside? You can't be satisfied.
Who will love you when you're old & gray, Who will care for you til your dying day? You don't want a good girl, Whose heart belongs to you.
To you, you know her heart will always be true and she'll always love you through & through, Because she only wants whats best for you. To HER, you'll NOT surrender full blown love, so warm & tender. But for you, a slut will do, It's nothing more than a "Rendezvous". Your feelings will never matter. To you, her heart will not be true. If she cheated on him... she'll cheat on you. And she will never rely on you. For another awaits her in her bed. She will not worry if a disease she spreads! Sneaking around, trying not to get caught, Until the newness & excitement wears off...Dignity is LOST! Would her man want to shake your hand Or would he devise another plan? Would he rather your life be taken, Because it's his world YOU have shaken!
Do you have no remorse Or do you plan to stay your course? What happened to the morals that God instilled in us, The 10 Commandments "In GOD we trust". The One who knows where our eternal soul is bound. He knows who's soul is Lost or Found. 
I truly regret our drunken nights And wish our children hadn't seen our Ungodly sight. What if Jesus came back today, Would he look at us with such dismay? Would he turn & walk away, Because we lived our life the devils way. This life is merely a test, But to HIM I must confess, Because in the end I want the best, And in HIS arms I soon shall rest. Soon this life will be over, No more hurt & no more sorrow. My only hope is that IF He grants us tomorrow, We will make wiser decisions Until our time on earth has ended And "Through the Pearly Gates I will enter", A peaceful soul... My Lord shall render!!

A Field Of Dreams

In a field of dreams we wallow 
in hopeless hope,
In a stream of deceit we 
struggle to stay afloat 
Without a heart to grasp, the 
darkness takes hold,
Yet with a light to love, a story 
of love unfolds,

In the slumber of night dreams 
become surreal,
In the wake of day reality 
becomes unreal,
Floating on a cloud getting high 
on emotions,
Walking on water, swimming 
the oceans,

In a sky of passion the stars 
shine with trust,
In a world of pain, I can see 
nothing but us,
In a life of struggle I do my 
best to get by,
With you in my life, I breeze 
through a natural high,

When times grow rough and 
become too much to bare,
Or when times sail smoothly 
and love shines fair,
I’ll look to the horizon and gaze 
at the beauty of the sun beams
And ill see your smile in the 
field of dreams

LIFE

life is a sea.
parents are the boats and ships which guide us.
we are the travelers there.
disasters are our enemies.
when a wind of anger blows,
disaster creates.
when wind blows with sweet fragments,
it creates love and affection.
that time disaster runs off.
love and affection can change anybody,anything and in anywhere.
that's the power of love and affection.
love everybody.
spread the rain of love and affection.
lifewill be colorful.....

Broken-hearted

One day at time I made it though

It's taken longer than I thought to get over you

Like watching sand flow through an hour glass, I want my broken heart to heal, to move forward from the past

For you heart does not listen to you, it does exactly what it wants to do

Forever your girl

Come with me lets go 
To a place where only we will know
Let me take your hand
And save you from your darken land
Baby come with me lets go 
And sweet heart they will never know
That your heart is mine
And that my hands will never let it go 
Baby here's my heart 
It is broken soon to fall apart
In your hands it lays 
I trust that it will be ok 
For your love lights my darken ways
And in saving me you save yourself
So baby wait for me 
And soon our hearts will have no pain
Some day we will see 
That our hearts are meant to be
Together in this world
But forever I will be your girl.

broken heart


How to fix a broken heart, listen to music, do some art, race a cart. They crushed your heart, so you pick up a part, and put it back together, they never loved you from the start. Don’t sulk around, or lie on the ground, even if they made your heart pound. I’ve been through this, so many times, that all I have to show is my hateful rhymes. Your lying around while there laughing in your face, they think they put you in your place, they think they played you like a game, put your name to shame, but show them there wrong, life isn’t that long, trust me, it’ll hit them like a gong. Sing a song, but don’t act like a Kong, your feelings will back and forth like pong. Don’t frown and let them treat you like a clown, you can’t get through them, GO AROUND. Don’t let them see you sad, make them mad and completely forget about the times you had, all this is true, ask your dad. Whatever happens, your not done, until that other person knows you’ve won, yeah, sure, it hurts to be one, but as long as you try, you’ll find your Hun, but while your waiting, have some fun. But the other person, you may have to shun, its not that bad, do not run, there’s someone for you, who will love you a ton, make a pun, eat a bun, draw the sun, life doesn’t suck, so don’t get a gun. Don’t kill yourself, its not worth it, there are others out there, so don’t have a fit, even if your falling down a bottomless pit. Life gets better towards the end, it may twist and bend, but you will find someone with a heart to lend.

for my pancakes in the morning you are my butter

THE HEART OF A WOMAN

When I see a Nerium oleander, in it i see the heart of a woman. An oleander is one of the world’s most pulchritudinous and deadly plants, and so is the woman’s heart; extremely pulchritudinous and deadly.
YHWH was and still is the greatest architect which in tells that he impressed and impresses the greatest plans on his architectural work. YHWH created everything else but still felt a part was missing, after stomaching the situation, he master- minded the heart of a woman. 
So delicate is it, to devote.
So humane is it, to provide.
So enduring to deducing and so lenient is it to loving.
Not every male leader runs an organization, a family or a nation without the touch of a woman’s heart. The touch of a woman’s heart is so magical in a peculiar way such that it completes the equation of everything.
Not so innocent, the heart of a woman is also a solvent that mixes with any kinds of solutes to form both healing and toxic solutions.
The touch of a woman’s heart also works in a magical and peculiar way to complete the equation of everything evil.
So delicate is it, to becoming jealousy, obsessive and possessive and hence;  
So conniving is it, to convince. 
So swift is it, to break another heart and so forthcoming to do anything evil to obtain anything it so desires.
I would not be surprised if Lucifer’s entire heart was made up of just the ugly part of a woman’s heart.

GOLDEN LEAP

at cremation ground
the flames were creating
strange words

he stood still, in void, between unfenced tears

there was no need to question the answers,
kicking up the history, of crossing the bridge
over the river of annihilation

of self, making a gift of forked tongue
of cobra, spiteful, as an old virgin

it was over without thinking, scribbling
on the margin, his name in different inks
a young smell floats an funny rocks of

events and the fish swims in eyes of dead
foetus in womb, with unclenched fists

Aftershock

When tears just can't stop and your heart feels like a rock, becomes impossible to unlock that's the aftershock. Words that will never be spoken because my heart has been broken, painfully stolen, mistreated left swollen two hearts that can't be because of my hearts agony. Eye's that will never meet that could of got lost in love deep, we are two souls that just can't be because of my murdered self esteem. I'm in deep sorrow these tears that I endlessly cry desperately wanting him to make me feel alive but he could cross the world through death valley's, carrying the moon passing dark shadows through fiery alley's all to prove his love and it still wouldn't be enough my heart is to corrupt and I'm all messed up. Only I can fix it I sadly dream of his assistance the man that I thought was never existing turns out he was just missing but he is to late it's like I can't stop resisting, aftershock from the pain I have taken all I can sustain.

UNASKING

Timeless,
the eyes and fractured wisdom,
the two of us, extremely prudent, suffering
the dislocation of vigilance against wrinkled sin,
I am on my own today
disconnected to

the unearthly rehearsal
of breaking the cycle of carbon assimilation
in the veins of white lies, of crude bombs,
moonbathing we were colloiding in void
of consciousness and scattered verses
in scriptures remained unsearched;

the brutal  hierarchy of chromosomes,
loud and merciless, in the birth of new settlements,
huge ovens for cremations, collecting the golden
teeth from the ashes, celebrating the
return of blood and death, me,
blessing the unborn poem.

A beautiful stranger

Who is this remarkable image I see with slight of joy and perfection 
I was struck I see you dancing in the flashing lights with desire shinning brightly 
It's like a work of art I'm sprung hypnotized by the beauty 
Preview quite romantic who knew you'd be so lovely maybe I'm nieve for wanting you 
Did not know that a love could be so bad but feel so good 
As the dance floor flashes I'm trapped in another world I envy your perfect kind of life 
This beautiful stranger can not wait to be in your arms of passion 
And your heart like stone struck me in vain this beautiful stranger I long

DRUMMING

in hired spring and naked thighs

the eternal sorrow did not go, it was living in our
memory under the gun of an unknown soldier. The
mania

had brought the overwhelming jeopardy of artificial
smiles, the swords, and ropes and different

tools of torture brew abomination, my clay
absorbs the shock, the abandonement of pain;

I reach for the icicles of veiled fire to burn
the generosity, the sacrificial amputation

of one’s own neck in service of opposition

SOVEREIGNTY

Living
someone’s else death ?
Was that an explicit experiment ?

Starting with an Adonis
to stitch
the wounds of angels.

An unlikely
walk through the tumor
of breast, where

no milk ejects
the ancestory. I hold
the words without meaning.

It was a tragic
flow of history.
The echo was searching a sky.

TOELESS JOURNEY

The hawk was always hatching 
a pacer,
to spin the surveillance,

tampering the tracks of violence.
The haul was heavy. Moon and fishes
went on to spread the dragnet

striking gold from the liquid
denials. The sovereignity was
violated of a virgin god.

The rule of drinking was sidelined.
Kiss will survive after the death opens
the back door of a globe.

Dreams are exhausted. There will
be no comeback of a star player
in the game of bloody manipulations.

UNRAVELLING

It was a sex attack
in burning clairvoyance.

You cannot catch me 
in catastrophic moment.

A hard core porn has 
the piety for a lone wolf.

Unclothed, a courier 
walks into a shower of bullets.

A hospital waits for the 
wounded god returning home.

On the scrubland you place at the 
end a coffined prophet, smiling.

Sleepless, sleeping on ambers

PANTHEON

After the moon 
it was an unkempt night.

I wanted to kill the narrative 
and recast the frozen history.

A dirt road leads to a new trajectory now, 
splattered with blood.

A double tongued thought brings
the ire of screaming horror.

Strapped for knowledge, he believed
in resurrection of a black hole.

The pain, it hurts terrible.
Emblematic was the bending of candles.

ONE GARDEN CITY

The ordinary life 
and the passage of one thousand 
full moons.

Cresting a culture of violence;
when a trident 
bleeds you unethically ?

A cave robber 
becomes god incarnate. A 
finger of land snaps-

and you savagely interrupt
the prayer and send the 
message. Run, brother,run –

numbered and the 
blue mountain is burning.


Sexless virginity is at stake !

You Walked Lightly

You walked lightly into my life
Captivating and lovely to my mind,
At first, I never cared who you were
Now I don’t know who I am without you,
You kissed me
I felt my world change,
You held me
I heard my heart awaken,
You loved me
And my soul was born anew
You walked lightly into my life
Now my heart knows who you are
And with every breath
And every step
I take down lonely roads,
Your hand is my staff
Your voice is my guide
Your strength my shelter
You’re passion my awakening.
You walked lightly into my life,
And all my pain
You took as your own,
And all my fears
You cast into the sea,
All my doubt
Lost in your eyes,
You walked lightly into my life
And no matter if you choose to stay or go,
My life is forever changed,
Just because you loved me
For a moment in time.
And because I choose
To love you
For the rest of mine.

A DEAD SONG

They were ready
to suck the crowd. The child was pushed
into lentil soup, boiling, to appease the rain god.

Shining masks, the celebration starts;
surging a myth, crown of hawthorn,
hallucinating dance.

The people lick their fingers,
feast for claws and incisers
I run for the cross, please wait.

Emptying tomorrow in the lifting
hands of blunt queen. The watercolor
was casting the vote.

A freedom descends on the wounded
legs, as they drag with nobility.
Thumb by thumb you clutch the tree.

MOURNING THE DELUGE

Something was not polite in signs.
The smell of incarcerated bed of gods
was floating down.

A subdued shadow of black moon
was climbing on the window. And each
house had offered a son, to rage

a war of retribution. Malice towards
one and everybody, they were ready to cut the
hands who were holding the book.

Out of the ore comes out the gold, when 
you use mercury. Vacant eyes have the 
veils of tears. Dampness was melting the bones.

The mud on the face, a gift of birthday.

Remove the capstone. 
You had buried a

The trial begins and

You don’t want to accept

You want another twist to a tale.

Just unbound, the death rate.
Red roses had no qualms. Numbers,
unapologetic, they die or commit suicide.
Death had no tombs. One by one they
cross the stream, sinking half, floating half
in a cynic system, heedless, emaciated,
eyes looking beyond, cavernous.

They kiss the doors, will not comeback,
pilgrims of grapes or hemlock, dead on the toes
of rehearsals, dried milk in breasts and pounding

drifting from one forest to another.

Some people will never learn,
Those who dont, cause concern.
They act like kids and it's all a game,
This is reality, Not something to play.
They dont care to see how it effects others,
Sex, drugs, and parties is all it is,
and all we can think is "Oh Brother!"
I dont understand how stupid people can be,
Just when you think it couldn't get any worse, There they go, Never cease to amaze me.
Because of this I may lose the one person I would hate to lose, Try again Please,
Even though we're only friends, I want to be selfish,
But even more, I want you to be happy.
I'm anti-social from time to time,
Time to think about the good things in life.
I hope that you could please remind me,
What is this piece of sh!t world coming to be?
I'm afraid if he goes, we'll lose touch,

BROKEN PROMISE

Who will deliver the blow
to hissing winds of red hot skin
when burning desert hits the green trees?

Life flows through fire in the shadows
of cloudy peaks. I resume living
in the bodies of other people,

I am not myself. And change must
come in the garb of numbers,
in the mode  of nothingness,

like the horns locked in the middle
of the road, raising dust and hoofs
two bulls fighting in the ruins of widespread

culture of politics. Only slogans give 
the clue to black power of flesh. A
dispute does not settle for the last rites.

Neither burial nor a funeral will take place.
Only bones will give rise to a flower bed
where ashes will read the history.

WORDS

Was it sacrilege to reenter the bones of knuckles
thinking of your primrose, a backlash of twigs
in garden of homeless birds, a high-profile
sweep starting a mad rush of blue winds
in the confused landscape of life ?

my hills are strewn with bones of eaten, half-cooked
lines of defence, the diplomacy not working to mimic
peace; dead words grip my truths; must you
kill the surgeon who has severed the wrist
of a thief.

I am falling unbidden on Pole Star, the terror
on the wings of flying swans, a child sits
on a chair with enormous head shaking involuntarily
and the cyclone breaking on the dumb noddings
of failing light.

you were stealing me from myself
my mitochondria, a little under the name,
while I was unmoored, talking to a mirror
who did not recognize me, caked in heat and dust
touching my tissues and blood
under the ignited roof of the tower,

walking with crutches to wipe the tears,
religion, open pyres, I am still stained
near a lantana thicket, amorous, talking

Unlock heart of enigma,
Pulse pumping burning it's stigma,
Crying out for all unanswered,

Nobody wants to ruin the day

MILLSTONE

They were decapitated
in winter.
To send forth again, fresh,
the green twigs of summer.
Trees of roadside.

My friends, I used to talk
to them in my morning walk.

Once I sat under
a wishing tree for a divine feel.
There were lots of colored threads
tied round the massive trunk.
I wanted to arrive in the neighbourhood

fake religion.

It was time now.
To understand the deep shadows

scars the high searing, wayward

screaming words that are silent,
gasping for air from losing breath,

grabbing my heart from my chest and pull it out.

my heart beats slower as it losses oxygen.
in my hands is a dead heart.
how was it possible to survive with such little notice?
but tiss the heart never had no noticed at all,

Making my heart race.

For I'am the one he's chosen.

This proves to me it's meant to be.
No longer to be alone.

Never planning to part.
Looking into his eyes,

Always be with you spiritually.

THE RAINBOWS OF AUTUMN

Autumn leaves cling high in the tree tops
As acorns drop to the bottom.
Summer’s hot days have long since gone
Replaced by the coolness of Autumn.

The roses and mums are still in bloom
For the nights are brisk without frost.
Halloween is just around the corner
With the brilliance of Autumn soon lost.

Dead leaves create the rainbows of Autumn
Red, yellow, orange, purple and brown.
Soon winter shall blanket nature in white
As the seeds of summer lie dormant in the ground.

Wild geese call as they fly in formation
Across the star filled skies of night.
The moon seems larger and has more color
Reflecting with wonder its light.

Autumn for most, is their favorite time of year
Till winter passes and it’s spring once more.
A time of harvest and transformation
As the light of day is shorter than before.

How many Autumns have come and gone
Only God could tell the story.
How many Autumns have we left to enjoy
With their fulfillment, radiance and glory.

Untangle the lies,

cannot forgive the bullets.
There will be no ceremony after the funeral.

Give a slice of blue departure
of moon to light the beach,
there was a brutal murder on the lake

among the muffled waves of protest
in the home of insanes, who were
praying for the sun to return.

Do not want to foresee;

sits. Me and my lantern burn

A reverse pain flows out of sunken

wants forgiveness from the toddlers.

This side of a shadow, on the other bank,

DARK CORNERS

On a wrinkled trajectory
the blood averts to abstract remission,
I am out of place in time and history.

Try to nudge the jumping ants
with their cyberweapons
ready to strike the antique nectaries

of judgements. The predators were 
coming. Killing for long necks and
pinkish lips. You envision a period..

of dearth for visage, for phrases
of dead skins: I start dismembering

This was a total disaster of unknowing,

Knife and Lust

Walking these streets of manhattan so aimlessly 
All alone in the dark only lights by the city shops 
I'm scared alone feeling out of love now lost the knife was rough 
You stabbed me in the back all I can do is Cry on my knees veins hot as fire 
With mixed emotions running through 
It's Like this dagger killing me more inside all this love and all this hate burns me away 
Deep inside passion urning for another lusting after another 
As if I were a lion in a jungle taking that prey and burning up with tense desire 
It's like a knife with loves wounds after the lust 
This is very hard for me in a world you left me bleeding alone 
Never picked me up left my heart to die out 
With my tears hitting the city pavement times like this just burns me away 
Love can go off like a loaded gun a love  vanishes just like a knife with lust

CRIMINALITY

Code of the veil was 
darkening. You were searching for an
unwritten message in bandanna.

Rot was setting in flesh.
Sludge was becoming a stone
for an unmoving stream.

The talks had failed.
Hand-grenades will explode in shouts
later on, to resume the protocol of death.

Where we are going in evening
of woods ? To go searching for the sapient
ancestors, in city of fingers ?

Years were rolling by in fog.
The arguments were climbing on the
black hills to meet a drunk god.

STRANGE ECHOES

a kiss
on lips, returns with a blunt style,
in perfumed demeanor !

i did not hear
with absolute eyes, a captive
in chained feet, for self-defence;


all the shades of red
were walking on ocean,
a black skull glides:

the night fills in pores-
the gale, kills the black bucks,
poachers were on run !

in telling, the wizard
entices, you will never know
full toll of civil war:

he turns down a gift of speech;
words and whistles were surreal echoes
and I see a sword like nose

FAITHFUL

Basking in brothels of mighty corridors,
who was seeking an annulment
of lemon grass for enquiring into the
genesis of mutilation ?

It was a terrifying situation for
a smell, drifting on the tarrif of
polity when fingers were busy
to dig in the flesh of victims.

Cleric wants to dictate the rhyme
of poetry distilled from anger.
Hundreds of thousands of monarchs were flying
in defence of dementia. The age was awry of death.

Close your eyes and listen to the sound
of melting. Somebody is drawing the green blood.
Dismembered, I swagger barefoot
on the steps of black clouds to take revenge.

ANOTHER LOVE

Give me a moment of pause
in this eerie lull,
I do not want to call it a day.

The blind fist had provoked the shrine,
before the lips started demanding
the dazzling kiss of a knife,

pure cut-out neck of high volted
embrace of a tall pole, black and white
like moon-struck anchor.

The strip search for tear-salt
under the unripe breast of dying flame.
Like a trembling peacock attended by hawks.

Not the comfort of street stone
heals the cleft of forehead, split open
by a shower of dancing missiles.

Complete

Like the missing middle piece to a complicated puzzle,
Like an eagle without its wings.
Like a body guard without his muscle,
a guitar with no strings.
Sort of like a song being sung without a lyric,
Like a pen that has ran out of ink.
An angel from heaven that has lost its spirit,
A mind that just can't think.
What's the use of a rose without its petal?,
How can a painter paint without his hands?.
Can't make perfect tea if you don't have a kettle,
It wouldn't be a beach without sand.
Like the moon without the sky,
a story that cannot be told.
Like a suit missing a tie,
without him I am not whole.
His heart is my missing piece,
His arms are my wings.
His love is my muscle,
My lyrics are the songs that he sings.
My spirit soothes his soul,
He is my initial thought.
He is the blanket whenever I am cold
I'm the teacher and he's what's taught.  
He is the sky and I'm the stars
I am the heart and he is the beat
He is the monkey while I am the bars
and with him I am complete.

Thy music

The sound of thy music illuminates my soul,
as I listen in silent amazement it fills my heart with joy.

Even the softness of silk is rough compared to thy music.
The melody of the music flows like a stream,
penetrating through the rocks and rushes on.

All that is melancholy and dissonantmelts into a pool of mellifluous harmony.
My heart longs to join in with thy music
but struggles in vain for a sound.
My passion for thy music is ineffable.

As thy music comes to an end,
my heart flooded with joy begins to drain.
The sweetness in my soul becomes sour.

The luminous pool of fantasy solidifies
into a dark disconsolate ball of reality.
My heart thirsts for the holy blood of thy music,
still following the rhythm.....

There was a question of stature

I will go with your swan song,

Time

Time keeps going, the world turns too,
With life, death, choices we make or even what we do.
What's the point of  life and death?
When all we feel is regret.
Repopulate the world with idiots,
make dumb choices and fill life with IGNORANCE.
It matters not what we do or say,
only to the very flawed humans, that bring us up and teach us this "way."
Life has it's occasional joyous moments,
but all that matters, I guess, is dumbass comments.
We live, we breathe, we die,
in the end it's apart of life.
Whether or not we live or die young,
why must we try to end it before our time is up?
What's the point of  life and death?

Surely

Surely!







I felt like exploding. 
The back of my eyes were burning.

What had happened here? 
There must have been times when I felt more than this. 
There had to be. 
Surely.

It was Tuesday afternoon, around 12.20pm, that I realised what had to be done. 
Someone had to pay!

I have lived, up until now, a privileged life. 
One really of no hard labour, unlike many of those around me. 
I suppose I felt superior to some people in many ways. 
Should I have thoughts like this as a member of the human race? 
There you go you see, human race, race, the word that we have put into who we are, its a race, we are racing, racing each other. 

Where will it be the race, who is in the, race, yes indeed!
Mumblings of a mad man corrode the in workings to such a degree that there seems no way out!
Surely we had felt more than this?

Surely!

STARDUST

Out of the cleft lip comes
a muffled voice
on the turn of events,

to interrupt a call.
Then the panic rises,
the blood was oozing from the larynx.
The winding mountain path goes to the end
of blessing where the prayer drowns.
What was happening to the golden land?
Did the green worry about the iced peaks,
from where the glaciers take a bend
to enter the valley?

Who was negotiating the winds?
The logic between the stars and moon?
Huge gods were speaking to the men
in black, wearing eye masks on the highest terrains,
not heading my grief.
The dust was crying.

And By Christ Does Faith Evolve

And then I came to accept Christ,
Believed in Him for only He enticed,
Conceived in my heart His light which shows me the way,
Death and sin does no more darken my day.
Even when I’m bound by ropes and can’t see why
Firmly I hold on to my faith in Him for I know He will untie.
Good Shepherd He is to all His sheep,
Hope in Him gives my soul the soundest sleep.
I now see it is the best decision I ever made,
Jail was where I lived before, though my freedom was paid.
Knowing that my life was purchased by the life of the King,
Love could never have any other sweeter voice to sing.
Morning comes and my day is full of joy
Nothing evil I face will make my heart deploy.
Only because in Christ I find what I need,
Praying through Him always proves He’s a friend indeed.
Question though is why the troubles never seem to cease,
Rejections, persecutions, sufferings somehow seem to increase.
Satan in such things is now made known to me,
Tempting me to stop pursuing the One who came to set us free.
Unseen are the real things, now I clearly perceive,
Vexed it is to my mind, but in my heart I believe.
What I know now is without Christ I cannot be whole,
X-ray my life, Lord, cleanse it and take control.
Yesterday is gone, but for these coming days strengthen me to pursue
Zion with might, for there You promised I will meet You.

Joined by the funeral, we sit down,

censored by stone age. They flee from the shrapnels
to swathe in bioluminence of death. The penury
makes a fanciest atrocity.

When I fall into the night. 

Lord take my body 
And every other piece of me 
But in the essence of my heart 
I ask you leave it be. 

Take my legs that led me through 
The path you chose for me. 
Take my arms that reached so high 
Accepting Thou as Thee. 

Take my brain full of numbers 
Letters, words and thought. 
For it will get me nowhere 
In the land I have been brought. 

Lord I haven't asked for much 
So please grant my final wish. 
Let me take my heart with me 
To forever keep the love I've lived.

Sometimes I Feel

Sometimes I feel neglected;
When somebody cares not for me,
Feelings feel crushed and shattered
Seas of sorrows overflow in me!!!!

Sometimes I feel frustrated:
When smiling leaves of my life 
Are plucked by the cruel siren,
Trees of joy bemoan in me!!

Sometimes I feel devastated;
The flood of tears tears the heart
Swaying away the remains of life,
Veins, dying and dried, course in me! 

Sometimes I feel suffocated;
When the wind with long nails
Caress my breathing life,
Sobbing soul cries out in me!

Sometimes I feel trapped; 
In the imbroglio of mysterious romance
That leads me from one heart to another
In search of soothing shelter!

Sometimes I feel dejected 
When rejected by the dear one
I have had in my heart since long
Blood of love has sunk in me!!!

Sometimes I feel elated
When all the sorrows engulfing me
Pave the way for panted feelings 
Seeds of thoughts sprout in me!

She puts together a heart of

for so long. Reluctantly it’s 
been so long since I had a 
tender touch. You see it’s been 
too much trust I began to lust 
and fall back into a track that 
got me dazed. Then I became 
amazed as an angel appeared 
at my door step. Comforting 
me as a slept taken in every 
breath I breathed from inside of 
me. Replaced it with a dream of 
dreams that gave me hope. 
That afloat my imagination as I 
wait patient to seek a new 
beginning. From a life full of 
sinning I am left empty. Until 
you appeared to fill my heart 
with plenty…of love. From 
above is an angel that grounds 
me into reality. That one day in 
my mortality love will come. 
Dripping out the sun as I sit 
and wait patient. I wait patient 
for you to appear. Staying near 
my heart no longer apart we 
both take that journey of life. 
Sitting across you as you 
become my wife but until then I 
sit and wait for that day to 
appear. For you are so near to 
the languages to open up the 
key to my heart. Taking it off 
the charts so now you are no

become a part of one entwined 
unit taking apart the stars in

till the motion is felt. You see

Humble background and journey with him amidst roses and bullets.
They wear buba and agbada in an architectural design
Darshiki from the north domain whilst we wear Ukwu george    
They plate shoku, koroba and kpatawo and make beads round their neck
Igbo speak, yoruba frown, hausa dance, itskiri watch
Kanuri laugh, Ebira smile, Nupe point, Tiv demonstrate Fulani pick.
Idoma cry, Awori cry, Efik console, Ibibio comfort
Yet Unity we stand despite the cultural diversity.
One for all, all for one, we stand.
Bound to the humble land in hundred fold
Relevant is our culture and tradition 
In defend shall we die and perish for our 
Precious country.

the ministry of the dance

the ministry of the dance is always Scripture based
it's all about bringing the Holy Spirit into the place
the ministry of the dance has a purpose that is two-fold
of Godly deliverance and breaking demonic strongholds
to deliver someone from the spiritual bondage of society
and show with the power of the dance there's spiritual victory
to break demonic strongholds with divine break through
to show in dance what the joy of the Lord can do

the ministry of the dance is a physical manifestation of love
for Jesus the Christ, the Holy Spirit and Father God who dwells above
to know that the tears which are cascading from our eyes
was enough to touch a soul and move them to cry
to know that the spiritual energy we emanate so much
made someone feel that by the hand of God they've been touched
the ministry of the dance is a physical portrayal of the Holy text
and not based on one's age, gender, race nor sex
a powerful ministry that is open to all
of which by the Spirit one is called
a ministry of faithful dedication, true devotion and total commitment
with love for the Lord, trust in the Spirit and a Godly contentment

the ministry of the dance is more that just a worship service
it's a ministry of true faith with a specific purpose
to dance with the Light of the Lord radiating through 
and the Spirit of the Lord filling up the church's pews
the ministry of the dance is to give honor, glory and praise
to Jesus who died on the cross and 3 days later was raised
a ministry of divine inspiration
a ministry of divine elevation
to lift up someone and move them beyond their comfort zone
to lift someone up and move them to kneel before the throne
it's about the Holy Spirit taking complete control
it's about sacred dancing in order to save some souls

the ministry of the dance will forever be spirit-led
it's a visual ministry serving of the Daily Bread
it's not a ministry that is meant to entertain
it's a ministry powered by the sacrificial blood stain
the ministry of the dance is about spiritual victory
that which Jesus died for to give to you and give me
it's not a performance and it does not invite vainglory
it's about being used an instrument in the outward expression of the Biblical story
the ministry of the dance is a ministry of total sacrifice
to submit your body, heart and soul into the hands of Jesus the Christ

Faith

Faith,
Faith is having the strength
To trust in something 
That you cannot see 
Or prove scientifically
Faith is also knowing 
That God will
Faith equals to success 
Because if you believe 
You can achieve
You believe 
Because your heart tells you whats right
Your heart also tells you what you should be
If you have faith all things are possible

GHOST TOWN

Watching the descent
without god
in an intelligent design.

Come have a look at
our adversary.
The template offers an open hand.

The culture of hunger
in this urbane obscenity
sitting on the payment making a motif.

The giant strode into

GENERATION

untouchable that bleeds, lonely
in black sky, that haunting moon
walks gingerly on quivering sea:
lovers killed in shame in broad daylight
by gunshots before a crowd; some possessed
maniacs turning the clock back: history
lets go the leaves, the autumn,

trees stand naked, not malevolent
but want to poach upon the wrong side
of faith; my vision starts failing,
crosses the river in ancient lingua franca
joining the broken hearts

i was apprehensive, clouds come and 
go, each death becomes a daisy

A BIG IDEA

The moral dilemma was
unlearning. 
less than truth.


Downgrading the-
branded witch.
Vaccine was spawning new virus.

O Buddha,why did you

and began sitting in a living room ?

Trailing the smoke

burning home.

What were those intimate-

I didn't want to see you cry

I know I promise 
To never hurt you
But tonight I did
I never wanted to see you cry
I am shame of myself
For making you cry 
I such a butt
I know I made your heart hurt
But I never meant to say those words
I was just angry 
Cause we never get time for us
The words I  said was out of angry and hurt
Baby I am sorry for making your heart 
And for saying those words
When I said forever I really did mean it
I will do anything to have you back
I am so sorry
I'm so a shame of myself
Now you sit there with a broken Heart 
And it's all my fault 
Baby I am sorry
Could you find a spot in your broken heart
To forgive me

Powerless Love

The most powerful thing in this world has to be love 
The most precious person you've ever dreamed of, 
Beautiful as can be, upon the midnight sky 
You came out of nowhere, and I didn't know why, 
My heart became my every emotion, and love was part of the feeling 
It's how you make me feel and cure my every healing, 
So deep in the thoughts of powerless love 
Your blinded by the curse you always feared of, 
It's a choice of freedom, or a choice to risk 
The first and last you'll never forget, 
Your heart is the emotion and devotion that couldn't be broken 
And the words that I fear that come out your mouth shall never be spoken, 
I will never let go of the dreams that I am holding 
Or never cut loose on the love that is growing, 
Don't fear the people who you love or who love you 
Just fear the feeling inside, that can no longer touch you.

ENOUGH

A leached amputee
living with stumps of flawless
dying.

Round and round, blindfolded
moving in circle, drawn by rhyming
bells.

Perhaps you need to suffer
with the drunken race of
snipers.

I am in the silent valley of
barefoot secrets where moon waits to
die.

The poppies will buy the bullets,
a gift to unending kiss of
grief.

Tell every vulture on the tree,
there is endless arrival of 
feasts.

BITES

One wardrobe malfunction
was a blast, a kill;
undressing imagination.
I was ready for an ambush.

Like boa’s grip, entwined, strangulating,
hardly breathing. I am in blue water
like a humpback whale;
donot go for the revenge.

It was not the fabric of flesh
hair and bones. I was tasting
the ash falling off the forehead
of a fallen saint.

The smile was going up for sale
in a gulp of greed.
Tomorrow morning I will find
amnion shaved on street.

A DREAM AFTER THE DEMISE

Man becomes a bee
assaulting a rosebud.
Death, do not punish for unlived years
when Budha was sitting inside me.

At center stage a dance begins
wading through salvia and absinthes.
The soil craves for the roots,
lake was not deep enough to sail.

Stem cells resume the debate
tapping the amniotic fluid.
Salt lick becomes lethal in midnight syndrome.
It was a tall claim.

The beards hang in rows, testing
the impatience of the system. A line
of funerals becomes longer, on burning beach,
where god and beast meet in dark.

IN SEARCH OF PEACE

The tiny thrusts 
and a blunt fuel
scrambled over the wet contours.
           There was an ephimerality 
           in overdue kisses 
           of death.

The interplay of sex
and spirituality starts,
bites the bullet and pushes the boat.
           The pungency of an elegy
           was a secondhand divorce
           with death.

Jealousy: sand was
under the nails. Now
I will find the remains of an ocean
           in your eyes. There was nothing
           else to be done than taking off
           the bikini top like a death.

Ripping apart at the seams and hopeful dreams

Let me pretend 
Let me close my eyes and remember that this is a dream 
One more lie to help mend a ripping seam
Just one more moment I can forget how much my heart bleeds 
One more love that is less then what it seems 
Dear pain, the pain of dreaming, the pain of being
My dear friend, how have you been?
Through all this pretending and fake mending
I forgot our deal was still pending 
Now as my dream has ended, my payment has come due
Another part of my soul, you can now consume
A realization I constantly forget, Hope is not your best bet 
The disappointment in lost love, can't compare to the misery 
I knew I would have to bare
Ass my heart bleeds, I then run to you
The words I speak I wish weren't true 
Your eyes express the pain I can no longer feel, as I try not to explain it's not a big deal 
Words flow as I soon regret, you remind me how much I can't feel 
How much this shouldn't be real 
I've prayed to God to let me feel
He has kept his deal 
I feel anger, I feel pain, I feel loneliness
And who's to blame 
The love, The hope? 
But happiness is the missing part of the wheel 
So with pain and darkness I make another deal 
The out come is all to clear
As another part of my soul it will sire 
But the dream will remind me, that I can't give up 
I can't give in
Maybe one day the dream will come to life
Or maybe one day pain will take my will to fight 
But either way 
I'll leave the limbo between ripping apart at the seams and hopeful dreams

METAPHYSICAL VIEW

Sitting between the knees,
I am being bathed by intense anxiety
and fear of harsh light.

A canopy of doubts
confronts the dignity versus anarchy
for a watchman
who will not dare open-

the vault of truth. A fatal
ire of imagination puts him
to dire need of salvation.

Was I moving from the wrong
side of history in my zodiac
to change the drooping eyelids ?

Death opens my door for a shortwhile
and then walks away
after watching the transparencies.


•	

The masks come and masks go.
Cracks do not disappear.
Either you destroy me,

or my inside will have
a singingbird,
closing the golden window.

The hardening of atereies.
Tension was rising
around the absence.

Who was the arbitrator
between dog and lamb ?
The weather was ripening black currants.

A RIVER FLOWS UNDERGROUND

That was unscarred night.
The full moon was rising.
A  contagium had spurred it to go high.

A brazen assault bleeds
the painter’s eyes. He sees only
red in the pubescent rage.

She walks out of the stain,
turning into ash, urchin’s
brightest moon.

Standing on the crossroads
who was burning clouds ?
Rains will never come again.

Phylogeny flattens the guns.
We were hiding behind the
rituals watching the fall of light.

I will make my own truce
with death. I refuse to walk
under the belly of smoke.

SUICIDAL WISH

For my water god I entered the wetlands.
Fog was increasing and me becoming incoherent.

The swamp throws a high tide of rolling wave
I lift the burden of bones and take a plunge in darkness.

The holy moon gives the company in yellow mood
smelling of honey and rusted-red mulberries.

A maxim inside the solitude hurts the path
where I lost my innocence for a son.

A breeze, a cloud, a beautiful sky
I carry the dust of my home wherever I go.

The wreckage was intact, past was shining.
An octopus was sending the suckers for future.

THROWING DOWN THE GAUNTLET

Crossing the burning barriers,
you take a fatal jump.
Brazenly, but giving little away.

Long shadows of ethnic clouds
were eroding the sun. Feeling the
wet lips you rub you sweaty
palms in vain.

Haunted, you would like to
kill the ghosts. You pull a silken
cord. A silver urn upturns the
ashes of your past.

Each truth walks without legs.
You are still incomplete. The
self-portrait will never hang
on the wall.

CONSUMPTION

The peace has a random price;
buried by sea of volition in knee deep puddles of
saline mud, being in being, after the crash,
to keep dissent alive.

Tell me, how did you go in arc light
in the middle of death, plunged in icy delights
of bloody waters ? Prevailing withdrawl
spills the counts in endless moments,

of permanence and deceit, a face was
present at one time in two canvases;
the despondency was victorious in kelp,
of arboreal moon, night drips orally.

When the future comes in nesting birds,
I will search the eggs of cuckoo, before
I know you again; the venus-fly trap for hidden
kiss will open the honey glands.

Joy and Perseverence

Are you familiar with the quote “Sometimes joy can be the source of your smile, and 
sometimes your smile is the source of your joy”?

I am blessed with an infinitely optimistic, euphoric inner joy, that I hope glows and 
sheds its’ brilliant rays of warmth to others … 
I believe it will…joy is contagious, and its’ glow comfortably infectious.

Do you ever have those days when you feel utterly and completely alone?
Those days when you expect the phone to ring, yet it remains silent?
You know you are loved, but you have an overwhelming desire for those feelings to 
be justified.
You yearn for the affirmation that all you feel, all you believe in, is indeed real.

Yet, this confirmation remains invisible… this is when you must shine!
You must believe that the best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be 
seen or touched; they must be felt with the heart.

I look but I cannot see…
Just because I cannot see the top of the staircase, does this mean I should avoid 
taking the first step?
I know not where my path will take me, but it is a journey I must make… I will tread 
carefully around those that attempt to discourage, those that pessimistically 
threaten what defines me, while I look upon them with empathy… for their journey 
will forever be more difficult than my own.

I walk with empty pockets, but with a warm, sensitive heart that fulfills my utmost 
desires… because I know that, with this heart, I will be wealthy beyond belief… 
money is only temporary, my heart will continue to provide because I know I cannot 
buy inspiration, courage, compassion, and I know that giving of possessions is 
hollow, it is when I give of myself that defines my character, and carries 
consequential substance.

So how will you remember me if our paths cross on separate journeys?
You will not need to consciously recollect, hopefully you will feel the fingerprints that 
remain because you allowed me to touch your heart.
If you will do this for me, you will become part of the air I breathe; you will become 
part of the fuel that drives me… the lives and hearts I’ve touched will provide, and 
become the foundation of my perseverance.

For this… I thank you.

Follow a dream 
Take one step at a time

TAKING ON

It was a fast 
against truth, in support
of unbidden body
which took the history lesson.

A star is born 
out of midnight accident.
Darkness deems dark
in siege of self-restraint.

An embattled self
seeks a counting. The money
speaks in absence, to clear
the debt of tears.

No longer
the eyes will look at
the marriage of trans-blue veins
in legs of seedless dreams.

Walk rosie, walk on the serrated thorns;
exiting the blue abyss, shamelessly a baby god climbs

a salt mountain, incantatory, flicks
through: cranberry, cranberry it was the end of beginning,

the whole, was in peril, bits flying, licking
the toes, upending the truth, cracks appearing one by one

the attic was full of portraits, atrium empty, the
blue landscape latched to windows, a sick air map,

pseudumonas again attacking the viscera, festering,
a roadshow full of blisters, ribbed easily, climbing

on the poles to get a look at queenbee, pretending

Eye for eye

The path becomes the tunnel.
Unending,

A vultured darkness descends

When the battle lines were drawn,
the only mandate
for the human torpedo was to blow up
the silence of time.

Sick was the death-struck
new born, praise of the ghost of tiger

The orange moon was absolutely naked;

the snow dripped in a cave to form a cone

A miracle was swelling the crowd

Thoughts on California's drought

The palpitations in this wash basin 
Do not belong to the wind or the sky,

They are the eager feet of children

Look in between night and day, the clouds move in fast toward me

Do you know my abc's?

And it was there. Looking me in the eye, “I shall born you.” I was overcome with 
sadness.

Before I was born I died. I was one with everything. I was more alive then, then I 
am now.

Children seem so simple. Children seem so free. Why is life so hard. Maybe the 
simple one is me.

Deep cuts in my heart. A boy that I love with all of me. I might’ve been invisible 
because he always walked by.

Enough of this! I hate it all. I gathered myself and left my heart behind.

Falling down the tubes. Drifting though life. No friends, no family. I. Can’t. Breath.

Gaining momentum. Losing myself.

Hot under my skin. It’s getting tighter. Wanting to rip through it.

I, am, not, real.

Just between us. Just between us two. I used to be everything.

Killing gives life. I want to give my life to you.

Love exists only as water. My heart is dry.

Maybe I’m your dream. Maybe you are mine. Maybe neither of us carry weight. 
Maybe both of us have died.

No, you never gave me a drop.

O I cry. I cry for you. I cry I cry I cry I cry for you.

Plenty of times I wonder how long my sentence is.

Quiere un vaso de dulce sangre. Dibuja un corazon dentro de mi cuerpo. Con 
esto corazon agujero, bebe mi vida. 

Run away from what you’ve heard. Leave and write your own truths. They say He. 
He does not exist. It tells me so.

Say what’s on my mind? Ultimate indulgences; eating meat and having sex. A 
man is meat. Chocolate is sex. A Chocolate man is the only heaven that will ever 
exist. Next to Him.

Telling you about my life is wasting the time I have to live it. If you’re meant for me 
you’ll just know.

Un knowledged people need to stop giving the gift of life and start giving the gift 
of life.

Very little patience do I have for those with no words. I’ll look for the person who 
stole them from you.

Will you be the one that I can hold  for now? Do you have a sweet heart, do you 
have soft soul?. Will you be the the love  that my ego drinks?

Xoxo hugs and kisses. Hugs and kisses. Let me touch your skin, help me miss 
your soul.

You’re looking inside me. Like it used to.

Zero words writing in my head. Where do my thoughts go? They go on this page. 
This page of my life.

I don't know

Squeeze of this fade
My fate
Then
Who want to be fine
Descent of heaven
That's my call
That's my cast
How  could one comprehend
The love
If heart who let
Don't have a hint
And mind is out of touch
How  could one compromise
With love
If heart who lame
With love 
Is full of lumps
And mind is out of logic
How  could one concentrate
When heart is lost
In his doubt of love
And mind is high
As dopey
With love
But no retreat
Don't ask
I don't know
But I love more then
The breath of mine
More then my blood
In veins for my life
Essential
Don;t ask

ICING

The twin blasts and 
lip-syncing was 
no insane coincidence.
The travail of incredible sinking 
will never be found.

The abstract family 
and myriad remixing of stem cells
may solve the puzzle of
assured suicide of the earth.
The small rapes and big assaults ?

A crazy progenitor wanted 
to have a control on volcanoes
as on sea. The spewing
lava was throwing gas rich froth
to start a megarevolution.

Was it a terrible mistake of 
you coming out of the mud pits ?

Candle wood Playhouse

I miss that old playhouse of brilliant plays 
And when I used to go see a show 
Vintage but very classy 
And I miss my uncle rod 
Who used to be when he was young 
The brilliant wardrobe man agent 
I miss him and this playhouse that is no longer 
They tore it down with no money to keep alive 
And all that is left from that old playhouse, 
That built my uncle Rodney is a picture of him 
Standing with his friends like Vivian Blaine bob Cummings and shelly winters 
All I'm left to cherish is their photos in a journal 
I hope my uncle see's in heaven 
Just how much he inspire me to write 
This is to inspire him 
With all my heart he and the playhouse 
Will always be remembered through time 
Blows a kiss to the night sky 
As I live to tell their stories

LANDSCAPE

my desire,
moves in a sky of principles
makes a perfect landing

this was the place
this was the name
my god, I have not reached anywhere

the words float in air
hissing reverberates
now you can talk, without tongue

the eye,
looks past you, a single
red flame, going straight into heart

the end,
comes steaming, of a sheer delight
moon was lying bleeding

•	
 
the thread breaks
it was neither beginning nor end
body floats between earth and clouds
no perception, no awareness
I may be moving or static
suspension of eyes in a tube

the sky breaks
this is a path between hills
I may stop or play with death
effortlessly   sometimes you don’t want
any mercy    no benign or malignant tumor
which can halt the steep decline

the thought breaks
you are listening a new story only
ladder will climb to palace   there is no
traveler, no caravan   the truth about the truth
was false   only a wooly rhino buried
under the snow was true

•	

I take you
between the veils
the shadows are chasing us
the rains will wash the sins

the bleeding must stop
every exit was red
guns are loud, and sun was in hiding
can you read me ?

I am tired
want to write a poem on my palm
can see it again and again
in dark

CHESSBOARD

dark matters are floating
like bowls made of leaves
spilling hunger, make me upset, figures moving
like ghosts wrenching out the fish plates
from rails, nothing will move now except
the eyebrows of stone faces, bodhisattvas
sitting in scorching sun, unshaven, crosslegged
waiting for realization to come, not to
them but tormentors, a milky way in ever
night, the dry wind slaps on the faces
to remind them not to sleep, the shade
of the Cacti and Acacia seldom stubborn
to give you the shadow of the blades, the 
sun ultimately compresses you in the
waist- high grass of death trap.

Cocktail

Beings of erotica were 
at the gates of heaven.
Shell-shocked,the city was becoming political
but people were absconding.

It was global warming 
for obscenity. The remoteness
was collapsing and moons
had come in my arms.

Smoking the serrated leaves
and glandular hairs, hurling
yourself on the pathway to estasy
to forgive and to forget.

The blue mercury was
ascending. Anti-depressants were
not working. You don’t own the
phrases. Words were becoming surrogate

for thoughts. We embrace the fall.

CURIOSITY

The invisible 
throws a visible image 
without a tether. 
Do you see the god ?   

Was a matter of faith ? 
You tie a thread on the wall. Longing 
finally reaches climax. Gravity 
defies a flying dream.       

You had erred, yet 
failed to accept the guilt. 
A scariest moment was, 
when you entered the morph.  

It was a U-turn. Robots 
will dictate the polity. You

RETURN JOURNEY

I forgot, was it me
in a body pile draped in dust,
still hot, bruised, burnt, a mad megalomaniac
starting a civil war, creating suicide bombers,
young virgins inhaling death ?

This journey under the guns, displacing
hapless thousands, will reach destination
on thick, blood stained red, dirt road of life ? Step by step

cross the barriers of silence and step out

Wisdom was in silent eyes
not on the lips of a blackened rose.

This is the destiny of charred

A Dream So Real

Last night I dreamt of you,
And that my wish had come true
You came to me on bended knee,
Saying my love, please forgive me
I want to erase all your pain,
While giving you my love once again
You said, I never meant to hurt you so,
And that you didn't ever want to go
Then you gave me a box of velevet,
And said you loved me ever yet

I opened it and saw my ruby ring,
The one I'd hoped for you to bring
My head was telling me to go slow,
While my heart said now I know
You're my fate, my destiny,
My forever love through eternity
Then the rising sun awoke me,
And once again my bed was empty
For none of it was even real,
Now how will my heart ever heal

Something falls out from your lips

"New Thoughts"

New everything,
new songs that we will sing,
new words,
nouns and verbs,
conjunctions,
with the pure function,
of holding sentences together,
like houses held tight in bad weather,
New thoughts and ideas,
new ways to adhere,
if you hear,
New places to explore,
new inspirations to adore,
new is more,
more friends to read and be read,
words over screens easily spread,
egos easily fed,
words spoken softly to end the dread,
on my page speech is in your font,
your style no one here will taunt,
no bad spirits to haunt,
just a forum,
to run,
penned poetic,
melodic,
religious,
erotic,

oh the thoughts that can be,
expressed so free,
here where we lay on beds of poetry,
all to be feathers in a wind,
thrown from one place again and again,
New words from my pen!

LITTLE TRUTHS

Deluge of criminality in the moral night;
sun was taking a  plunge on the falls,
in the name of cobbled up front, for our
rise and fall in the primary casuality.

Sacred contusion, on the floor of mausoleum,
when you smell like a forgotton god, and
lie in the generosity of asylum under the downy mildew.
You cannot cry in the armless death.

Punishment of defeat makes you a sex slave.

A love thats the best

Staring down at the blue water 
Smell the salt air 
The climb to the top was almost too much to bare 
Closing your eyes remembering wading in the freezing water 
Wondering if this was the end of your life
Arms extending as your heart takes flight
Feeling your feet about to slip 
But in his arms you will never slip 
Your weight shifts as your heart begins to pound
Now you remember the fall 
You remember the wind sweeping past your face
As no sound could escape your lungs.
Accept the fall. 
Knowing his arms were not strong enough to keep you from the waters below 
The nights spent crying as you felt your heart dying 
Cold water froze a beating heart  
In an instant warmth wraps around you 
Strength pulls you in 
As words whisper so softly you swear it was the wind 
Beautiful darling, you can only fall towards me 
Eyes widen to find the deep cold sea 
As far down as it ever could be 
You lean into him, feeling the warmth of the sun above 
Enjoying every moment, every smile, and every second look 
For the first time in a long time 
You no longer fear the sea below 
You no longer wait for the pain 
For the day may come where you are freezing in the waters
But after a climb unlike the rest 
Your lungs will fill with the warmest breath 
And a love that will be your best

AGAINST DEPORTATION

Ahead of pain, we did not cry;
intimating of dreams, crowded;
stranded on issues, reaching nowhere.

Black, a weired hairdo, unfurls a moon
in half-sleep. You can open the door
without sound. The snake writhes under your feet.

A traveler waits for a hymn, holds a green
urn, full of tiny eyes, looks at sky and returns
the darkness for any possibility of light.

The missile whistles down; hushed, gnarled
fingers start the rescue efforts in a lonely
cosmos; goldilocks starts howling.

Terror strikes again in offering, so far
about nothingness; a vague, masked scapegoat
sits in bold greens, to start the beginning of end.

Fly

                  FLY

The light will come, the 
darkness will disappear
It will disperse into the 
midnight air

The clouds that dampen, 
darkness surrounds
It's a natural progression, it's 
soon to be found

Ones mind in turmoil, with a 
ferocity a force
Expel the dark energy, nature 
must not take that course 

One has to be free to have 
clarity of thought
Do not fall on that path of 
negative thought

If you believe you can fly you 
can fly 
If we know ourselves we can 
touch the sky

A strength within, just have the 
courage to bring forth
Unburden oneself, refrain from 
going north

Live for the now, conquer your 
fears
As I said before. make 
everything clear
What you've dreamed , let you 
dreams be so
control your fait and follow the 
path destiny says you should 
go

Can't nobody tell me how I feel.
The way I feel this feeling.
This feeling is real yes she knows the deal.
That kiss to her forhead signed the deal.
My heart skips beat when she's around.
But when she's gone that pain is so strong.
Yes, yes, yes this love is real
Yes, yes, yes that's just how I feel.
I want her to know how I feel.
I want her to know how much she means to me.
A blessing heaven sent an angle of love
Turn my dark days to light.
 Brought my heart back to life
Showed me what love love was
Showed me what love is just when I thought it
Was through God sent you what a blessing from the

could death be the grasp of my hand,

this secret is more than a man,

"I FOUND IT IN MY HEART,

THIS LOVE WILL TEAR US APART,"

it will never finish my friend,

for us theres no happy end.

# 2 A heart sealed with Rust

A heart sealed with Rust. 
I Love you 
I love you
I love you
I want to say it
But what does it mean,
I love you
I love you
I love you
From all the others,
You've heard it all before
So would you belive me?,
I love you 
I love you
I love you
How are you here
Yet gone,
Why do I imagine My head's rested on?,
I love you
I love you
I love you
So my mind thinks,
To much,
And my heart speaks out,
So as I leave behind,
What i think's A love of mine,
I say,
I love you,
I love you
I love you,
I believe you make my other side whole,
I believe this is Love,
But I'm drowning in it all,
Please say Yes,
Please say you do,
I cant take this anymore,
AM I in love with you?

GOODBYE

Walk with me
blood moon,
I am very lonely today

like an orang-utan
at the very edge of lips
wants to know, where the forest will end.

In the last strip of land
they were surrounded.
Anytime they will commit mass suicide

to save the honour
of thighs and guns :
they will bite the glass capsules of cyanide.

Must I feel sadness ?
God, they are going to sleep in dust
without saying thank you.

CROSSING NAMES

Unrepenting you start 
from a sore point
to ask an explanation
from an eclipse of the sun.

unreviving,
a corpse, the moon carries the burden
of light, on its bloodied shoulder
for burial in dew.

Half the century we were 
reciting the prayers to open
a blocked artery of a dying god
who would not share our bandages.

The bride steps out
from dark,
unveiled, and undoes the hairs.
There was fire in her eyes
and ice on her lips.

IN OUR BREASTS

Taut flesh of toxic seductress
comes out of the skin,
rolls in the dream.

A century buries the neck of God
and creates the words
of unbroken greed for useless faith.

A path stuns the sharp thorns.
Nothing would stop the seeker,
he has to annihilate the rival.

Somebody takes an aim
at the dancing egos
and brings down the marvel.

The bitter feud continues, between
stars and moon.
The molten lava moves like a snake.

What Fear Fed On

Fear
The venom that rains
Got you
Drowning
In the desert
And a spirit
Weak in brevity
Strong but unbelieving
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

Society cuts
Flying wings
As to drain
The courageous soul
Of its hope
And then
People die
Rich with power
Power they never used
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

I see plain pain
In your eyes
Hurt laughing at you
You’re afraid
To ever love again
Because your past
Caused you wounds
So you walk agape
Running
In a cold escape
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

I see your dried tears
Inscribed
On your broken face
But a determination
You’ve been robbed of
That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

So will you
Forever sulk
Forever your conscience bulk
In a pessimist bask?

Or will you
Your mantle take
And fear forever shake
For you live dead
When fear drives your head

That’s what fear fed on
Fear fed on you

WASH AWAY

Peace or violence, with humans you never know,
When love will sprout or when seeds of hatred will be sown,
When in humanity & compassion people may find satiety,
Or when the lust to kill will choke up all their pity.

The bitterness in the human heart is like a patch of rust,
More the time you provide for it to go but spread all over it must,
For all the time inadvertently it is exposed & encouraged by all,
Till it begins to loom bigger than the source which started it all.

Peace, harmony & brotherhood prevail in times of trouble,
Which in the company of like men seems to disappear like a bubble,
It is true that in times of need often united they stand,
And peace regales on this Earth as the people live hand in hand.

But at times mad violence destructs this harmony & peace,
Fear & terror of its outcome each person’s face does it kiss,
Someplace this hatred reaps for someplace it had been sown,
And try as you might it never seems destructed however often it is stoned.

But sometimes love overcomes this hatred sown so long,
And love itself sways the people with its lovely song,
And acts of love are done worldwide to make other humans aware,
That love alone may be able to remove all traces of hatred. 

Humanity & compassion exist in traces forever,
But it needs a huge catastrophe to make its presence felt all over,
And then unbelievable acts of humanity & kindness are done,
By risking one’s own life to save that of a fellow human.

However merciless killing sometimes throws away this compassion,
When over petty matters are evoked unnecessary flood of emotions,
When sentiments are hurt over religion, creed & caste,
Their intensity provokes acts that threaten to drain away humanity at last.

All this is nothing but the result of a turbulence of emotions,
That creates a cyclone in human heart with vigor & aggression,
Come rain, come storm; keep only love, humanity, peace, compassion & kindness,
& wash away if you can from this human heart all hatred, violence, enemity & bitterness…

ARRIVAL

it was
call of the moon at night
to stop the flesh trade of fireflies,

when million stars
were gazing in amazement
after the blast

of sky, i was rocked
in sleep: picking the seeds
of lightening from the lips

of new born thoughts; there
was no sand in the hourglass
of body;

off was the castle of bones
erected on the black widows;
the sea licking the fog

I am the angry of the gods, so real,

so blessed my touch could steal,

often set a trance,

but as tender as in a lady that would tempt me to dance.

to the stars i take a glance.

I surrender, for all I remember,

As tall and powerful as that of a timber.

just as innocent as a child, her touch so tender.

I put the world as far and deep and trapped in a daze

bring fire and brimstone where all we graze.

I left you my message but in this phrase.

It must end.

I told you i send you death my friend.

only as swift as the wind.

My father had give me my soul to lend.

Tis my fate.

For the world had turned my love to hate.

To the ends, but still the world go round.

Thus the end, for my fate had touch the ground,

prisoner of retribution,
he was buried under a salt lake,

elusive, his crotch,
not far from stings of wasps,

the blood spills,
he would wonder how to catch the truth

in black river,
wrapped in imperforated causes,

leaking with curses,
black conjugation of greeds,

with the grief unbuckling the grudges,
uncut wounds, festering under the skin,

the stink starts scything, he starts
folding the denials, in self praise

EDGAR ALLAN POE




One of America’s most famous writers
Was born in Boston, January of 1809.
Both his parents were failing actors
And his father was drunk most the time.

In 1810 Edgar’s dad disappeared 
His mother died soon after.
A childless couple took him in
Raising him with love and laughter.

Edgar had a Negro nurse
Who brought him to her quarters.
There he listened to ghost stories
Far beyond earthly borders. 

The strange tales he later wrote
May have come from her inspiration.
The words she used to describe death
Gave Poe his taste for sensation.

The Allans moved to England
Where Poe attended boarding schools.
There’s no doubt his time spent there
Sharpened his skills as tools.

 Returning to Richman and back in school
He began to compose new verse.
Heavy debts forced him to leave college 
As his life took a turn for the worse.

Poe caught a ride on a coal barge to Boston
Where he was unable to find employment.
A young printer agreed to publish his poems
Giving him hope and enjoyment.

Penniless, Poe enlisted in the army
And was accepted to West Point in 29.
Poe couldn’t stand not being a writer
Self-imposing his dismissal from The Line.

Afterward he became an editor and critic
And married his cousin who was thirteen.
Six years latter he discovered she was dying
Suffering once more the unforeseen.

He went through periods of insanity
Caused by grieving and functional fall.
He smoked opium and drank too much
Till at his doorsteep death would call.

Edgar Allan Poe the master of verse
Still lives in our hearts today
Famous for The Raven and other great works
May his soul rest in peace we pray.

The Struggle

The Struggle

It seems like there’s a war waging on my inside
With all these things like lust, fame, and pride
It’s like these things are eating me alive
They feed on my insecurity and continue to thrive
I always feel so helpless, I’m just so weak
I need to connect to another power source, my plan needs to tweak
I can’t do it by myself, I’m simply not enough
Without outside help, I’m left alone to fight all this stuff
I look at myself and I don’t like who I am
I feel like the life I’m living is nothing but a scam
I love to help others, my words to them seem so nice
But I wish that I could start taking my own advice
I know what I should do, I just can’t seem to have them apply
The real question I constantly ask is why?
Why can’t I do it? Why can’t I succeed?
From these things I so badly want to be freed
They eat me inside and I wonder why I can’t apply my advice to my own life
Why can’t I escape this inner pain and strife?
I don’t get it, what am I doing wrong?
I’m done trying to admit that I can handle this and that I’m strong
Lord I’m begging you to come set me free
 I want to become all you created me to be
I want to follow your will and stick to your plan
I want to be a true follower, not just a fan
I’m done trying to do this myself, I know it will never work
I bet when you see my try, you just can’t help but to smirk
You know the only way to victory is solely through you
Now please guide my heart and show me what to do
I know that without you I will do nothing but fail
Please show me your way so it’s not just another fairytale
I know you’re there, but I’m blind and cannot see
I have to remember that you’re always here with me
So Lord I give up my life, I lift it up to you
Please change my heart and make me brand new
I know things will take time, I won’t be instantly changed
But please take my heart and have its motives rearranged
I want to focus on you and have you be at the center
I’m opening the door to my life, please will you enter
I know this battle may seem like a marathon
So please help me always choose you to lean on
So I’m ready to change and die to my own self
I have to make this decision, I just can’t put in on the shelf
Lord help me follow you no matter the cost
Because without you, I’m nothing but lost
Now I’m not alone in fighting this way
I have you on my side and you will always win cause your power is so much more
Now through you alone I can fight my inner sin
With you on my side, there’s no way we can’t win

THANK GOD FOR THIS PRECIOUS FREEDOM

Thank God for this precious freedom,
something too invaluable to be lost;
and with all the liberties to choose from...be ready to toast!
America has always opened her arms to all who mourn,
and will certainly continue to do so;
does her kind and lovable heart ever let go?



When night comes, look over the dark ocean...and see
how many stars God sends out to make her beautiful and grand:
that sheer splendor is yours indefinitely;
and what do the brave soldiers think of their distant homeland?
America is indomitable and triumphant... 
the hope-deliverer and the strength-giver of every destiny! 



Thank God for this precious freedom,
it was given as a token of generosity,
abiding by the wisdom of the Holy Bible;
America was a Christian Nation, faithful and simple,
and will certainly continue to be...
and right now is the cradle of Christendom! 



Make her shine with your faith,
and be one of those stars, immortal and great,
and could anyone put that devotion out?
Protect, honor and obey her just laws,
and peace, with another era of prosperity, will be yours;
persist in your fortitude and richness will abound! 



Thank God for this precious freedom,
He gives it freely to anyone putting down the sharp sword;
observe the humble and obedient heart rejoicing in the Lord:
it only feels the purest joy love can express!
So proclaim it with your joyful song...
of justice, equality and fairness!

But I always fall back in it.
Into the trap of my own confusion
Into the snare of my cluttered mind
I'd really like to reach for help,
But I'm afraid of what I will find.
Some people think that I am copping out,
That this is just some big excuse
I'd really like to reach for help, 
But I just think "What's the use?"
I feel like there is something more,
That's waiting out there for me.
Like so much life has passed me by,
That there is still so much more to see.

Crossroads

Crossroads
A man that cries alone is a man that dies alone
Living life through the words of a heart filled song
The heart beats to the rhythm of the soul which is hard to contain
The feeling of lost and rejection never can be maintained
If I should die tomorrow where will I go?
Give my flowers while I’m alive because when I’m gone I will never know
In life trials and troubles it seems like one way in and no way out
Doing the right thing but getting the wrong results leaves nothing but a fearful doubt
My past is my past so please don’t judge me
We live in the present so look past all my imperfections and know there is a future that I seek
It’s amazing how the finger points and the beam is blinding your eyes
The truth is always seen no need of a disguise
I died a million deaths and still I stand strong
I was never a follower of anyone because of these battles I have to fight alone
I failed a couple of times which most people liked it that way
They kicked me while I was down and only hoped that was the position that I stayed
But still I rise with a victory of a bittersweet taste
I turned and walked away but happily went back to pick up their faces
I don’t seek for revenge for you reap what you sew
Before your lips part and speak that vapor I will let you prepare yourself to take these notes

Just so I'm with you

As I close my eyes and try to remember your face
A darkness comes I can't seem to erase 
I sit in silence just to hear your voice 
But the noise of how my life has changed is the only thing I can hear
My heart has let go, for feeling are too far gone 
But my mind holds on remembering a smile 
For I have no hope to hold on to now
And I'm stuck in limbo praying for hell 
Heaven never last 
With hell wrapped around like a cast 
You did what I told you to do 
Left no doubt of what you wanted to do 
The only question I have left 
Is what happen to the man I saw that day 
The beautiful words you called to say 
You loved me
For that I have no doubt and in all my years I thought pain had nothing left to teach me 
But pain taught me love wasn't enough 
So I come home to stare into brown eyes
That saved me countless times
To find death has taken hold
To the last thing that had my soul 
And with all the dying 
I've been trying to see the reason of love
But all that is left is pictures of days in the past 
When happiness seemed to last
Now like countless times before
I see my self wishing for the past even more 
Reaching with empty arms 
For something I can't have back 
And with you both my skin still can feel your touch 
My lips fear to have lust 
For they fit perfect with you 
But death had to claim you 
In that moment I saw my love was true 
So let me not fear this knife
With it's cold blade of truth 
Let me feel the blood 
From the heart that bleeds for you 
For if death can take you 
Then it can come for me too 
Rejoin us in heaven or hell 
Just so I'm with you

HEART OF THE MATTER

A man,
in the shadow of a child,
walks, for the sake of
phylogenesis.

The Great Bustard,
was on the brink of
extinction. Somebody
was not an achiever.

Seeking,
an inborn god in thighs,
for running faster than light,
weightless, faceless.

Dust will take,
dust for the dark matter
sequencing a disaster.
The animal within roars.

LAISSEZ-FAIRE

The smile conceals, something.
Does not offer any cue.
You were still traveling 
within.

You wanted to leave the world, 
as it was, without cleaving
the wood, not accepting the veneer.
It rang an alarm bell.

To evolve their own persona;
good to take their own path.
The fallout was widening.This
was an insider’s story.

What an audacious withdrawl;
and you were in a silent mode like a Buddha 
to uptake the film of dust
settling on the innocent rape of book.

COLLATERAL

When the curtain falls, the puzzled instinct 
inherits the confusion of clouds. The beleaguered 

moon goes into a rage. Hungry vultures start
a wait for the fall of a titan, stimulating the sun

to exhibit the trove of the golden rings. Go
blackberries, with bloody roses into the dawn.

Whole night our bones had gone crazy. Flickering
like stars on the lake of speechless body.

All his life he was searching for the windows
to let in the fire for burning up the boots.

SIDELINED

A sorcerer moon was rising
amidst grizzly clouds.
A lurid willingness of night
to surrender was evident-

A pact was inked between an
antiheroine and a renegade.
An apostate-

The feline grace jars the sexism 
by sitting on the fence.
A blue ocean will churn out
the urn of lethal poison.

That flame. Can you kill
the wolf ? The tricks of
child-molesting were
on the big screen.

Men

Men can't live with them or without them
But why do they get the pleasure of hurting us
We sit here pour everything out
Lay our heart on the line
But all the get is our heart stomp on 
And a thing of Ben & Jerry's
With sad movies
And tears running down our check
Men are always telling us what we want to hear
Because they are afraid or to shallow too tell us how they really feel
then you got the men who tells us what we want to here so
he could only get one thing and one thing only 
Those late nights at work or with friends
You never know if he is just out with a other woman and doesn't want to tell you
When a men tell you he wants or needs you
Don't believe it cause sometimes he really doesn't
They are only loving us when they are playing
if you find the one good man and he actually honest Keep him
But if he ant worth nothing throw him away 
Cause you are better then that..

nosediving;-

through the shadows
of terrible pain
ejecting ambergris.

Who was getting
the bribery
to fix the belly button ?

This was not revolution.
It was evolution-

The gods were sleeping
on the lips of a pride.
Nurses were preparing the bed.

How far the sane voice
will reach, to deliver
the relics of a salted dynasty ?

Unbodied, how do I touch you
groping ? The message was not
clear. How to kill oneself on stage ?

A beehive falls on

Entire town was going

was preparing for a self-burial.  

A hundred thousand moons
were placed on your crown.
The sun was going to roll.

Charred bodies
were turning in graves.
Who was becoming untouchable now ?

Give me a kiss of cobra.
My bandaged life
wants to sleep in peace.

STRAY COLORS

Now burns the stillness of thoughts.
Be my enemy.
Ants are running out
of the eye.
Nightmares:
I am collecting the ashes from
the burning ghats.
The steps to the lake are disappearing
in the blood of moon.
The dogs-
are carrying away a half-burnt leg.
It stinks
stinks
the whole river, all night
all day.
Don’t shut the window
I am crying.

Tin man was walking on the sea
of words.
He did not want to utter F………out.
The hirsute triangle
pops up, every time
you close your eyes.
All night he was dreaming
he had become inert, like a corpse.
Can you start a salvage chemo ?
So that I can levitate in emptiness
and meet
my arithmetic
midway like cherry blossom
falling, yet not falling.
You will never understand me.
I was waiting for the night
beyond the sky 
beyond the stars.

The stigma
the style.
No pollen wants to land on your cherry
Stainless shirt waves a white flag
to stop the war.
I am not a cherry picker
in a moonlit night
undressing the smile.
It is for you, the next life
a little wee
if I don’t come back
from the sea of carnage
pure as a fish.

SONG OF UNQUIET SPIRIT

Staples were traveling on the
epiderm, thanking the wounds.
The dust, the eternal ugliness
were growling.

Riveting drama:
a royal swanking for a macabre
heist. A bizarre charisma
overtakes the cozy lips.

I was green,

where the sunflowers meet
beneath the sun.

Blind poppies assert themselves
unfurling a flag of milky sap.
The wasps were going-

First encounter was skimpy 
unleashing a terror 
of tales. I will not find the

Remember,

It was an ode for the failed

the fall of an author 
in the ravines of jealousy.

A trampled butterfly exudes
the yellow fumes. Meanwhile
you can draw a nude on

Why the cuckoo will not sing today ?

Astringent. I call for the mountain’s music.

Secret Relationships

No words ever spoken
Scared the relationship will be broken
Their relationship with their love
Their relationship with their desired one
Deep down everyones seeking fun
Feelings arise as time goes by
Before you know it you catch each others eye
Playing it cool around the crew
Wishing you were alone just for a few
So many unspoken feelings in the air
Thinking life can be so unfair
Now finally your both alone 
And your both fully in the zone
Get so close your lips almost touch
Something about tonight feels so right
You act on it quick and make the first move
Everything around you is a blur, yet
So many thoughts flowing through your head
If your man walks in you'll both be dead
Feels so right yet feels so wrong
Wishing this kiss would last very long
Don't want to be the first to pull away
Oh boy this made my day
Don't know when we'll have this opportunity again 
Wishing he wasn't just my friend
A little spark turned into a flame
The feelings we have are the same
Everyone wants what they can't have
Your man can give you the world
But your desire for something new
Is the selfish coming out in you
Nothing is ever good enough
No one is ever satisfied 
But this is reality...
Is anyone faithful
or do they put on an act
Yep 
Thats what they do as a matter of fact
Everyone pretends
Some till the end
Others get caught and then they fought
To start all over might be a blessing
Personally for me it was refreshing

For me

Letting go never makes it easier,
And with hope confusion only builds 
I opened my heart and I'm too terrified to let it close
My walls took so long to fall
My mind tells me to rebuild and start new 
A impenetrable wall must be made, just to not let this world put me in my grave
But my heart loved and was free
Love you found me just to remind me of everything I will never be? 
The words circle in my head, It's just not there anymore
I felt my soul as it tore
God, haven't I lost enough?
Hasn't this world taught me not to trust for too long 
The feeling of knowing it'll never be the same won't be shaken 
How could I be so blind, to think I could change your mind 
But when my world falls down, I swear I'll run 
Yet I stand still like my heart is holding a load gun 
I swore I would never let you go, But like a childhood dream 
I thought if I wanted it, then it would be
All I wanted was for you to love me
The fairy tails I read, lied to me, They swore that love was all you would need 
The darkness rolled into my happy land 
As I realize I really did loose my man
And I hold on to the hope that I hate like it'll save me from my desolate fate 
Just let this be, and we will see
But with all my pain and all my loss I feel my love drift away 
And like countless times before everyone leaves and they don't know why
My tears consume me, and I hate myself for believing in love 
My anger kept me alive, and you stripped that away so I knew that you were the one that would stay 
So now I am left in no man's land 
Not knowing to let go, But praying and begging you will come save me 
I can't make you love me again, But as you walked away 
I realize that there wasn't a single day I thought you wouldn't be with me 
I thought I knew heart break I thought I could handle pain 
But through this I see, That I was a broken me 
You put me together, you raised me higher then I've ever been
And the fall from there has been my worse
I know I'm a shell of me, because you showed me how to be free 
So if hope dies, Even through my relentless tries
I will never love again, I can't take proving my father right, I can't take this pain 
It took true happiness to understand true pain 
And if I make it through this still sane 
I'll never do this to myself again, For this is the worlds biggest sin, To watch someone walk away that was the only one you let in

Old Guard

Time stood still
The clockwork cranked
Eyes not used to venture 
The gift of sight conjures

The unsaid is the animated 
Affection in forms all coded 
Our legitimate silence

Omniscient eyes used to scour 
Through covert heart that wander, 
Where words and sarcasm are symbiosis, 
Egos pulverized, reduced to effervescence
Words that cut, words that shut
This ample heart loves in cower

Things change…People change
The hair is now a crop of grey
The eyes a steady current. Eyelids lowered
Words he utters
A simmering boundary; dormant yet tenacious

Where is the man I fear?
Where is he whose wrath I quiver?
Where was I when you love me so dear...?

All this time we fail to see
We talk in different tongues 
Swallow bitterness like drugs
Those three simple words stood
Apart like cliffs of gaping ravine
We stay muted to protect each other
We end up hurting one another 

How I wish to tell you
How blessed I am to have you
How I wish to hug you
To thank for all you have been through

This unlawful silence 
Will it break,
Before the sun sets
With all it takes?

JUST BEAUTY

Today I want to take a lethal dose
of black lips, confronting the killer on
contract. Time dithers to escort. May be
a cold-blooded murder of a handful of
sick shadows will give a transparent
memory.

Planting a sad kiss on blameless
insomniac, I rub the sweet tenderness
of morning blossom, a work of a faithful
artist, an unnoticed grief ( for the sake
of old promise). Meanwhile the blue moon

From the height of insanity flows
the chaste river of history. I defy the

Thing Called Love, I Can't Speak

Writing Yet Again, grab my

thought I begin to write my 
feelings I hide within.
Within the deepest part of my 
soul, 
These emotions I can't control, 
and yet my heart won't let you 
go, can't walk away and this 
you know.
Deep inside my heart just

Everytime I hear a text I think

You told me that u loved me 
now your walkin away from me,

and it hurts to know you'd 
leave me lonely.
Yet and still I can't speak.....
There's a lot of things I see, 
and I pretend that I don't peep, 
and u always lie to me, I guess 
I'm blinded by this love.
This silly thing that we call love, 
no one said it'll hurt this much, 
knocks you down, don't help 
you up.
That's the reason I can't 
speak...
I'm always yearning for ya kiss, 
always dying for ya touch, 
always needed you to hold 
me,prolly cause I love you so 
damn much, and it Juss hurts 
cause you don't see.
I always thought that you were 
perfect,  thought that maybe 
you were worth it, and us two 
together was for a purpose, 
was this a BIG,BIG MISTAKE?
Gave you my heart, you balled 
it up, 
And some how I still can't get 
enough,
Have I really gotten weak?
I've always had ya back since 
day one and that's a fact, now 
it's ya turn, and I get ya ass.... 
To kiss.
I truly do believe a good girl 
you had indeed, somehow 
someway u dont need me, I 
was too blinded by your love.
People always tried to tell me, 
let it go cause he's not worthy, 
worthy of ya love. 
And I'd Just sit and cry,  I'd try 
and try to deny it, hoping you'd 
Just change, but I see that they 
were right.
I stand putting up this fight, 
and I know you no longer 
like.... Me or even care.
So now I'll let you walk away, 
still you'd be thought of 
everyday, I know I'll miss you 
Sooo damn much.
But you were Just keepin me 
stressed always worried bout 
the rest, instead of being here 
and loving me.
But this is what I once called 
love and swore I couldn't get 
enough,
But here's from me to you,

FALLING

Something impossible would happen.
Truth was too much to operate,
life was easy with fakes.

Neither mortal pain, nor needles
would mend the wounds. The chasm
was deepening.And I stitch the orange lights
with the kisses of green tears.

For the punishment of disjointed commitments,
I dream of the killings
standing on the corpse of faith. The
obscene slogans raise the dust,

of hate crimes. The color of the race
was spreading, on bellies, on stones.
The night will bring spiralling comets
in the sky, burning and emptying

there's something i forgot, im dead on the spot, i feel like im shot, and my stomachs a knot. i may be 19, but i feel like a tot, i stole the worlds heart, and i didn't get caught, i don't have that much, so ignore what i got, my head is filled up, so i empty the slot. life is a story, and death is the plot, i have to admit, that i love life a lot, my brain has the boogers, and my nose has the snot, how can i cool, when life is so hot? im driving my life, and parking the lot, thanks for the offer, but i can not be bought, i made it on time, right on the dot, i was boiled alive, and left in the pot. i do what i want, whether you like it or not, the voices of mine, they already fought, you'd be surprised, the knowledge i sought, go out and have fun, while im left here to rot.

OUTPLAYING

They walked out gagged 
before they entered the water
for an irreverent
ceremony.

It was a coal time 
to start the fire. A salute
in light was given to those
who were alive.

You can go for a strip-
search of a gaint jelly fish
to find the vertical beams
in its dome.

A painted stork comes 
with an empty pouch. There 
was a perpetual delay in
understanding the parenthesis.

WAKING IN DARK

Stigmatized.
A drone kills a dove.
An aphrodisiac ?

Bashing the ground,
cajoling the sky.
Trapped in bed,

coupling in amber.
You want to rein in
moon, for a shout ?

And weather had the
wasness of a glory.
You wanted to change the gender ?

Would not go near the dais.
Somebody
was burning the doors

I am Yours

I am yours

Don’t leave me Lord
For losing your presence I cannot afford
You guide me you comfort me I want you here
I love how you always feel so near
I am in your arms I am yours to hold
You keep my spirit warm while my heart is so cold
Please stay with me to the ends of the earth
For you have shown me what I am worth
I am yours you have made me new
You forgive me for all the evil I do
I don’t have to worry I am not scared
For you saved me and my heart is repaired
You are by my side until the end of the day
Oh how you love me in every way

A LOVE AND HATE STORY

I was learning, how
not to catch you.

Called the cloud
hugging a hillside.
Can you climb on the road ?
No , it said, I want to play with the moon.

So,
this was becoming,
without presence.
An epiphany ? No it was a crying
theme, discovery of the self.

When the tremors came,
you were flung like a doll,
opening the earth
one breath long.

Swallows were eyeing the sky.


•	 

The hollow tree
traps the light and sends out
the blue pupils of yellow eyes.

I am still counting the limbs
under the boulders.
The landmass was moving asking names.

The big vulture was watching 
the end of the feast,
for schizophrenics.

A bomb hidden in turban will
kill a saint. You say I should
call for the girls.

Why don’t you wear the skullcap
to cover the beautiful mind
which will not kiss the fire ?

DISSECTION

It was haemolysed 
the homeless night.
Flagellation will bring out the truth.

The bloody kerchief
was thrown on a crowd.
A new comet was sighted.

Dust and ice were
near the tears.
Sun was rising.

Something fell
in the lake. Death was going
to be celebrated.

Flesh has emptied
the juices. Now 
bones will laugh.

the bridge

If the bridge is burned why should I cross it 
Again just leave it the way it is. 
Why continue to keep on going back and 
Forth with the same thing that is going to be 
The same outcome as it was before. 
Just don't jump off of it into the sea make 
Sure that your mission is worth the while 
And complete. Never forget the bridge 
Who have brought you across forgive 
And don't forget the cost and the choice 
That you made for the price that had to 
Be paid just to get over the bridge.

UNSPOKEN

It was not dark
in a killing field.
A primitivism has prevailed
upon an intimate hate crime
for brand mnemonics.

A bronzed moon
will come out tonight.
The glances were missing
and you -
cannot see properly.

The blue bird
was nesting in a pink cloud,

less than half. Killed
but not raped.

Blood was scarped off,

RUGGED FRONTIERS

The sun beats mercilessly.
A coastline invites the violence
of the great lake.

A sinking feeling of a boat. The battle
of tides and limbs. You can see
the colors, the dragons
flying. The blasted sky
and blackened clouds. A shriek
sets the lake on fire, as the dusk sets in.

A tribal instinct to burn
the fences, set the horizons
free for a new comet, landing from
unknown space. You want to touch
the lips of a mute, blotted moon.

Fireflies start dotting the night.
You move inward; find a dark
niche to graze the wounds. The hurt
brings the words. You pick up an
axe and start chopping
the dead wood.

ON THE EDGE

I recognized the vitriol.
There was blood on your hands.
The invisible was burning in dark.

This was the black moon 
and this was the alienation.
An animal climbs on your shoulders.

It goes on and on.
Was it the night to undress 
and show your wounds to dreams ?

The lake has left the shores -
and  flesh eats grass
in absence of cold truth.

I meet the moans of quaking
stars .petals know the music 
of death in fragrance.

OFF-LIMITS

There was a soul-searching 
after a negative assassination
tearing my past, my future.

Beneath the burden 
lies the mountain of bail-outs.
You don’t feel whole
in shadows of countings.

The borders were breached 
for lavish darkness
alive under the full moon.

Was it a flight risk in a swan 
lake, when you were
taking a dive to pluck the 
erupting fire of indictment.

SELF-WATCH

Have not crossed the street
in many years
to greet you.

A slice of moon 
leaves footprints in blood.
Maintaining the perfection
you start giving names to trees.

Paraplegia:
you start dismanteling the life
in search of romance with death

Take hold of my arms

Drink the milk of silence.
It is dark, but soothing.

FLICKERING DREAM

It was your
integrity

at the time of ubiquitous pain
of separation, you want to move the home
away from home

coming
to terms with the trauma
your shadow was not following you

playing dead
nuzzling the earth, racing to fill
the void, entering the truthlessness

this world
of violence, of mayhem, of self-betrayal,

A DARK HOUSE

The accretion of a perfect squall
when claws were out-

scavenging novelties. A lewd
paranoia slains a farewell

in a trench. The chamber has
vomited a mound of gold blinding a shell.

The combs did not straighten
the puff. The old man was very lonely.

I would stop hunting the stings
of a bare-chested moon.

I recuse myself from judging the paperboat
which wanted to cross the ocean.

WEAVING SILENCE

Do I have a choice 
before knifing the page
for a meaning, when I was
drowned in a nostalgia ?

Cinchona bark. This was my 
keyword for living bitterly
under a tryant inciting
the riots of colors.

The digital death comes as
a reward for insane truth.
You turn the back on home
and walk towards the sea –

to count the empty shells on beach.
Here life completes a cycle
from emptiness to emptiness.
You are ready to go in void.

•	


On waking you find yourself 
dead. Now every one is talking
about you. The words sink in a 
womb – a death watcher.

The house was burning.
How tall you had become after
forgetting the prayer ? Do you
think a window will allow –

you to become immortal ?
The inner strength reverberates
in black stones who were sad,
you will not make them visible

any more in nightless journey.
Moon eater,
You were always hungry
drinking the elixir of death.

PIRACY

Otherworldly, tactile retraction
of rainbows,
from the eyes of believers.

Detachment of restless mind
at twilight, pot starts
boiling.

Sundowning, a paranoia
takes over, you suffer a childhood
near the pyre.

Thing is not a thing
exclusive of an extremist,
something burns inside me also.

The age of a tulip
moves backward; I, untethered,
float thoughtless in speech.

ONE DAY

A repressed scream.
Someone breaks the head.
I was hitting the wall.

The rape hurts.
Withers away the dam.
River was changing the course.

It was very pompous;
the benign torture. No
more I belong to this world.

And the dilapidated
houseboat floats on the lake
to collect the immersed-

bones of ancesters. A 
door opens. The poem prints
the pain of centuries.

THE FLASH POINT

The double-edged truth 
had the exoticism. The blood was
in air. A blue bird draws
a red line, indulging in spiritualization
of a gray design. The testosterones
chart the trajectory in the flame
of the forest.

You deploy your army in zero 
hour. Colored leaves start casting
the spell. You listen to the rustling
of skirt. Moon was walking in.

A pink sword and sharpened 
claws. After the vulture hit,
the death wil swoop down on you suddenly.

MINE

I know that you notice me
our eyes lock everyday.
But fear of being rejected is keeping me away.
I feel I have a burning desire 
way down deep.
I wish we had a love to share,
a love to save and keep.
I want to be together now,
going with the flow
and sometimes, I wonder how,
we can make it go.
You're the one, 
I'd give the sun.
Even the old pale moon.
If only for a second,
we'd be together soon. 

Then one night you
whispered those words I've longed to hear.
"I love you"
but, you don't love me, my dear.
That was long ago,
the feelings all to clear.
I know now you meant those words
and how you'd draw me near.
But once you got attached on me,
I had to let you go.
Because of a higher power, 
and of things we did not know. 

We were friends,
the best ever made.
But, I remember those words, 
in my heart they're saved.
But now you say,
that you were thinking,
and take those thoughtful words away.
My heart is now sinking.
It killed me inside,
I ran to hide,
>From you, what could I say??
How could you take back such a thing?
Three little words, that to me, meant EVERYTHING. 

We had our fun, and now you see,
you come running back to me.
Now you know you meant those words you said,
I had the rage to scream out, in my head.
Not for long,
my rage burned,
and you foung out, your love was returned.

IGNITION

Like a butterfly pinned

Death makes a deal.

I was appalled
standing on the edge
watching the withering body.

The lake drowns me.

It is not even midsummer.
The planting of the kiss
remains incomplete.

No sex was involved

You were thinking about the indignities
heaped upon the lake,

There was no capitulation.
You went on opening the congealed-
blobs of blood to know 
the keynote of violence.

The sectarian hate.
It outlives the love of brotherhood.
You want to go back to, from where
the jungle starts. It had swept
away the snow-white young
peaks.

Footprints of some movement.

from your poems to
resuscitate you, draped

You promise you'll be there for me
You showed me all the nice things 
You told me that one day I'll be wearing your promise ring
You said that you loved me, that every time I call you'll answer
You broke my heart and did you care
I didn't even think if you did or didn't
Because of you my heart floats in the air
I treated you right, let you stay at my home when I had to go to school the next day
Even through late nights
I should've let you go when we where going threw our fuses and fights
But instead I heard that what relationship was, true
Thats not an relationship; you cheated and you lied 
I told you from me there should be nothing to hide
I just wanted you to be real, but you couldn't even do that
But that goes with half of these lieing,cheating dudes
To us girls thats known as a fact

 and the flowers danced in a beautiful line
 to the song that my heart longed to sing

My dark friend

An evil falls within your bodyThat no one can see
A darkness that's meant for you and me 
Never in this world have I found a soulAs evil as dark as broken as mine
Hood up eyes darken your heart beats slower as you walk my way
A friend of mine you have changed
Every muscle in my body tells me to run Away 
My heart feels the painAs my soul watches its twin walking in 
Sliding down the wallUnable to do anything else
Breathing quicken as I feel you next to me
Eyes open to see evil itself in front of meA growl flows from the familiar places
Your breathe burns my neck in the best ways
Scared of what I see but I can't push you away 
I lean farther to the cornerAnd in the moment of my weakness 
You went in for the killYour body pushed against mine
Your teeth on my neckGrowling As I knew in any second my life could be through
Your teeth scrapping my neckAs you breath filled my ears and blow my hair
No where to run,not wanting to scream
Curling into my selfYou pull my arms away 
Pinned now Held by your power
The darkness covers me and I give up the fight
My Evil rises My demons once again walk
My resting place I have found, an understanding of the claimed now
Unleashed and untamed I look into your eyes
Only to find the light is gone,The humanity has fallen
Now I see everythingNo shield No glamor 
Blackness pours out of your eyes as if they were waterfalls
My mind tells me to be scared The light in my soul says to pray
Voices said that you were hear to make me learn 
To teach me the ways 
We are the two that our cursed
Smiles cross our faces I now no where I completely belong
Your hand reaches outI can't resistsThe peace the comfort 
I'm Home as I accept his hand and my life begins to fall away 
Now I understand that I am yours
I know who you are As the world passes us by
You pull me off the wall and lead me towards his victims 
Or are they our friendsLooking around they see nothing different 
My hand in his as we stand by there sides
A moment in time we shared A moment only we could see 
As if someone stopped the turn of this world 
I Urn for the feeling of our darkness
It whips away all the pain, It connects us in a ungodly way
Feening for this drug again, Sober scares us into the light
Stoned enables us to find the meaning of our life
You are my connection to what is ours
You are my darkness that pulls me back from the light
You are what reminded me of why I am here
We were meant to meet meant to invoke the powers we were giving
And save our selves from each other

Heart Of A Teenager

At the heart of every teenager,/
There is confidence that's been shut down by worry and rage./
With our lack of confidence, we shrink away from the stage./ 
And yet we each put on a show of our own,/
Whether it's to fit in at school or avoid life at home./

At the heart of every teenager,/
Is the very tiniest thread/
That pulls the broken pieces together again./
For whatever reason, the heart breaks when we cry,/
Leaving that feeling of wanting to die./

At the heart of every teenager,/
Is a hint of insecurity and doubt/
That makes us want to scream and shout./
It clings on tightly and won't go away,/
So we ignore it by turning the other way./ 

At the heart of every teenager,/
Is a little hope that things will change,/
That we won't have to worry, that it will all be okay./
But of course the hope is counteracted by doubt,/
So our high-flying hope is quickly shot down./

And at the heart of every teenager,/
Is the burden that's different in all of us--/
Something we've learned to almost cover up./
But every so often, when the pressure piles on,/
The burden shows, and all our hope and happiness are gone.

GOOD MORNING

The dawn, arrives.
Like fawn, under window.
Get a silk rope.

Across the sky, ravens-
bragging in shrill voice,
of early rise.


Sun chops the sea 
in sharp blows, distributing-
light for everybody.

THE CALLER

After breach in tolerance
one peeled truth becomes incendiary.
Afraid of the known:
pitched against
unknown.

Dying young with stiff upper lip,
the grief,
was not curtained enough.
The malignant spread,
refused to retract a name from the epitaph.

Greed overtook
by calculation,
powerful thrust to run the winds,

the virgin grass will not surrender.
Lethal on the move, a humble shout
was nearer to god.

How timeless

O, violence;

A climactric battle 
rages on, with self.
Inside you, seeking devastatingly-

After the black night,

of sharp landing, through the eye of a needle.

Freedom from the legacy

TWILIGHT

On periphery of gestures and casts
I speak for fading integrity while a fossil
of a scream was stolen from the womb
of language.

On becoming silent, an untitled truth
shakes sensibility. Small vignettes track
the battleships of calligraphy. The sermons
wage a war.

The saints praised the puffed up sheep,
suffered the asylum of Atlantic for astral
hopes to cross the folds of virginity. Splashed
motherhood refused the onslaught of tears.

You make inadequate love, exiled in
intimacy. Blood-drowned statements
will not make to the surface of time. Century
moves not for you, not for me, not for him.

open the lambs for salt.

Can you eat your

Silent Prayers

The hand comes out of the
rubble to throw
the musky odor
of a cross-legged
monk
under the ginkgo tree.

An apparition comes
outside the body of a fan-shaped snake;
ignites the wolf.
We were hungry,we were thirsty.
Untwining we went into the cave
for a snowgod. 

Tossing the coins 
in the water tank;
tying the thread onto a
ficus tree,
the weeping shepherd said-
I want nothing.

The Lonely I am

I am the lonely
My heart isn't whole
I'm the only thing I have
But in my soul I know

I am the lonely
Here's my chance to escape this shame
Things are distinct now
But whose to blame
can you tell

No one cares that I am the lonely
But it will all be ok
Or so I say
These words are just crazy

Because I am the lonely
I sit by myself alone 
This time my heart is gone
And I have nothing to show 
Except that I am the lonely

You Saved Me (From me)

Somehow it's like you don't exist
The stars above are missing you
You've been away for oh so long
And I'm drowning in your absence,
Just like drowning in quicksand
I can only stop the struggle
To avoid the complication
You're gone, away
You can't believe
How the fire you lit so long ago
In my soul
In my heart
Can eat me up when you're not around
We're planets apart;
So close, yet so far
And when you're roaming another world
Carefree and smiling
Unaware of the turmoil
Your absence causes
Here I lay, drowning in your memory
No-one to keep me company
But myself
So I sit, and think… and just exist
And the magic you have on me starts to fade
The beauty and meaning which you brought
To my life
Seem to die away
 Into pictures of Utopia
Abstract euphoria 
They fade into the charred night sky
Weighing heavy on my heart tonight
Like a coal ocean breeze,
Or a cave painting, of what used to be
And I start to remind myself… of myself
I see my ugliness, stripped naked
Staring into the mirror
No longer saved, rescued, hidden, covered
By your beauty… 
My pity, my shame… my agony
Bare, unclothed
 No longer lifted by your confidence, 
Your pride, your pleasure
My blasphemies, lies, my defiled soul
No longer sanctified with the purity, the faith, 
The truth you plunge me into
This is my ugly truth
- - - 
I am myself now
My old, pitiful self
I'm the monster I was running away from
Before I crashed so hard… into your arms
But it was the best crash
Fate steered me into

My hero
My savior…

Now, with no shelter
I am a pit
Of everything I used to be
There's no running away
No angel to fly me skywards
To lift me and drown me into the sun
To save me
I'm left to sink in a muted sea
The sea of tears I cry for you 
I cry when I miss you…
I never thought I would
And before I run out of air, 
I just want you to know…

You brought the meaning to my life
You colored all the black and white
Without you I'd be a careless soul
You are the one who made me whole

You saved me from me
From the killer that I was
And if I could sing, to you, my final words
I'd say this… 
You taught me the art of human passion
You taught me to love myself so deeply
And then, I'd be able to love someone else
You taught me to smile when I wanna cry
That there are no limits—
Not even the sky

Thank you

I miss you
I love you…

SCHISM

After being robbed
you want to hide your

Someone is going to flaunt

The sinking of twin islands

Come Naja, come :
from the scented tree
and spread out your  hood.
I will pull you down on my lips
One day.

Classical porn, Neanderthal.
In your stark nakedness I wanted an asylum.
A place guiltless, hands blackened, moony face,
Nothing to hide, except the fame
Of a fear.

Can I breathe in a cosmos ? with integrity ?
The interviews are corrupt, the dales stun,
The peace perverted, destroying the white birds.
O browning sun !
Wait till the moon rises.

The daily war is very raw
You burn your fingers

Here lies the god matter:
the lineal descent of creation.

What was holding you

Let us forget the chest,

Sad and alone,
I see you cry.
"Look at me,
please dont tell me a lie!"

You try to speak,
But no words come out.
I see the tear,
and start to shout.

"You were with her 
and not with me"
You try to speak,
But I cry "LET ME BE!"

Walking off,
I break slowly down.
I hear your voice,
and start to frown.

"Leave me alone,
and dont come back,
Maybe now that your gone,
my life will be on track"

Five weeks gone,
and Im still bleeding.
Its your love you gave me,
that I am needing.

My heart breaks,
cause your not here.
Your probely with her,
That's something I fear.

I know your happy,
But Im dying inside.
I wish you were here,
So we could go for that ride.

I cant live like this,
I hate being apart.
But I hate you so,
But you'll always be in my heart.

I'll be alone,
& Im sure you wont be doing the same,
You'll be out with her,
which I find extremly lame.

Looking out the window,
I see her with another lad.
I smile and call you up,
It's now time for you to be sad.

You cry your heart out,
Telling me what to do now.
I tell you I still love you,
and we start a new row.

You can run after her if you want to,
and ask her to stay.
She'll say she loves you,
But she will betray.

We could never really be together,
Cause you love her so.
So I just rip your picture up,
and scream "Just GO"

Never will I love again,
cause you tore me apart.
So dont come back,
otherwise I'll break your heart.

The Ultimate Makeover

A woman one day had a total makeover 
she completely altered her body and face
But only one week after all the surgery she had 
she found herself standing before God's pearly gates
She said Lord, "what's going on around here 
You told me I had twenty more years?"
The Lord replied," I didn't even recognize you 
and that could be the reason why you are now here"

What is the ultimate makeover? What is it that we feel we must change?
What are we really reaching for? What do we hope to attain?
Botox injections, breast augmentations, changes that require a surgical team
We sometimes take an extreme approach to obtain the  American dream
Pimped out, tricked out the ultimate fantasy car
But without God in your life you won't get very far
The ultimate makeover what you really need in your life
Is to accept as your Savior the Lord Jesus Christ

We all have a God shaped hole in our hearts that only He can fulfill
And no makeover of your fleshly self can completely satisfy that bill
To live your life to the fullest extent you must makeover your inner being
For your soul is the essence of who you are the core that God will be seeing
Neither bulking up nor becoming slim and trim will to God make much of a difference
It's the grace, peace and serenity inside you that will change your outward appearance

So confess that Jesus is your Lord and Savior
and believe His Father raised Him from the dead
For your faith in the Lord Christ should not occur only inside your head
It's not just the consciousness of your thoughts It's how your soul accepts God
So drink of the blood of the new covenant of Christ a makeover transforming your heart
For true belief involves your whole being it's not just cerebral and intellectual perceptions
It's the heart , mind and Spirit of God that should be your personal inceptions

The ultimate makeover the ultimate transformation
Will occur when you accept Jesus Christ's resurrection and salvation
So be recreated with a clean heart renewed and born again
the ultimate makeover that comes from within
But if you continue to hold sin in your heart there's not much that God can do
And you'll have a harder time finding forgivingness if your heart's not contrite and true
So ask the Lord for peace and grace and let the Holy Spirit inside you take over
Be revived, renewed and born again the ultimate Godly makeover

Iced lids throwing the flames;

He did not reverse the wheels of woes;
did not bring back the stream
lost in the volcanic rocks.

Playing truant from black death
a frail hope kindles the small fish
to swim against the current, 
ruts of repetitions and bores of endless

a savage desire to severe off
one’s neck, the song will get a name
in troubled mind,
to remove the stain on tongue of black spider,
you will think again to commit your sleep
for that beautiful death :

guess what happens when you come out of the body
like a blue beam and strike a black hole amidst
the shining legies, the lines on your hand
        till a different merger when the listening
        was unheard and the body does not talk,

wolves were coming; no one minds the bullets,
but sneaking in dark, like paroxysm of sunrealistic
chorus of mutiny or angles fallen from the sky
the acid was thrown on the face,of rosy lips
        because they were finding new words.

Can a mountain be separated from the ground?
Who can drain all the water in the oceans?

My people are my love 
Upon the mountains and valley i would fight
For their liberty and right
Although many may despise me in the long run
But i care not because they belong to me
Even if there is no money, i will work
According to the old song, "Igwebuike"
He that has people has strength and power
My people are my love 
May amadioha protect them
We dance in happiness when our Chi remember us
We dance together in happiness
Measure our joy with our footsteps

Restructure the fallen mountains then
Welcome development in their lives

WISHES

Nothing was beholden.
Colony counts were perfect.
You were never guaranteed and exit.

I am stalked by lips 
of a black tulip holding
a moonbeam.

The world moves
wearing a shell of emptiness
in a cosmos, inviolable.

Aggrandizement
beyond the bluffing.
More beliefs and many withdrawls.

You will not kill me ?
Half-way to soothing words
of ecstasy.

WILL NOT FORGET

Flirting will broken bread
I taste a bitter truth.
I am entering into a stupor
from head to toe. The
intimate torture has begun.

Trying to locate the
dirt path back to

has come to an end.

The meaningless ailing
now bleeds from dark
orifices. I return back

The river has changed

THE FALL

You were starving the words 
to commit the waves of hunger.
What I wanted was a patch of shade
under an olive grove.

No intrusion. It was a miscarriage 
of justice. We  were searching the –
missing links between the years
of misunderstandings.

We sell our gods and move on
unquietly to understand the-
lament of middle of the road, when
sun was nestling in the clouds.

It was Fall. Fall of vanity, fall of
integrity. Fall, fall-
my pride, my tears. The season
was changing.

COMPLICATED

Encouragement, to stand strong; 
against the discouragement, of 
doing wrong.
Trying to change, before its too late; 
deranged, cause I'm staring in the 
eyes of my fate.
I thought, I finally had it; I fought, 
maybe its more than just a habit.
Could it be me, that's so screwed 
up; not worried bout the enemy, 
but by the Lord don't want to get 
chewed up.
Once again, it's time to make a 
crucial decision; D.T.R. with a close 
friend, refusal to lead to removal of 
this brutal incision.
Complications, left and right; 
frustrations, day and night.
My heart screaming your name, 
what if utters my brain; I'm older 
now this love thing isn't a game, yet 
situations repeating itself like stops 
on a train. 
Confusion, created by self; illusion, 
bad for my heart or my health?
State of mind, half past crazy; point 
in time, all or nothing can't be 
shady.
My mouth saying no, but actions not 
matching; i say whatever you want 
goes, however you throwing balls 
but I'm not catching.
You say its up to me, regardless 
you'll be my friend; but truthfully, if 
I can't be with you I can't see u 
again...

WISDOM

I will deceive the immortality
in my inadequacy, between myself
and a messy belief.

The sky cracks open.
One unreal moon
slaps the dark clouds.

You want to rest on my shoulder
till eternity.
The silence leads to nothingness.

Over the rifts, space and time
eyes stalk the hands.
You cannot write your name.

You will not move a step,
I will not stay for long.
The distance will defend us both.

I am not the old I am the new begining
I am the growing woman of color brown sugar that's me
I am the music i'm the rhyming of time you know
I am one of the many music notes
From every mountain side freedom will ring in my ears
Me i'm not the taste I am a blend of many herbs and spices
To me my people we are the melody of a thousand notes
NO ONE and I mean NO ONE can tell me what i can and can't do
Just because I am not just a word I'm the whole library
I am not a aplanet i am the universe BABY
Hear me sing, hear me talk , can't nobody take my walk
I am not the regular i'm the supreme
Do you really want to know who I am
I am sweet, beautiful, and intelligant
I am my ancestors, my mom, sister, and brother

MINI POEMS

The maligned,
bloody moon,
will never show
the darkside.

Like
human nature,
a theorem,
unsolved.

*

The fiction
was incomplete.
The end,
was unending.

Blaming

*

No
amnesic stance.
I wanted to stitch
The fragmented past.

Was there any

RAMBLING ROSES

Slightly indecently
the moon was sleeping
beside me in the dark room.
There was a shift in the stance
of window. No wind either was
coming, nor going.

Should you be calling me for an
interview, be aware of the bipolar
mood swings of weather. Sometimes
it is hot, sometimes it was freezing.
If you have a sharp knife, download
it in spirit.

The tribes are fighting for drugs,
money, land and withdrawl syndrome.
There may be a toss for a run-off. A rendezvous
with tulips will make a big start. I am
tired of paparazzo. There should not be
a slide show –
of truth and lies. The situation is very 
catastrophic. Whosoever wins will not
bring drinking water to parched lips
and light to dark books. Take me to
last resort of pain. I am going to sleep.

I stand tonight before the moon
and commit suicide in a beehive.

NO TELLING

A severed head sits upright on mud floor
coruscating in moonlight. It was a meditating
Buddha with eyes downcast after a perfect death.

With indecent exposure there was no artifact
to celebrate. The steel was rusted and the name
erased from the asylum.

You walk like a stranger in your home,
possessed, in merciless purity. The greatness
of unbeliever touches a giant guilt.

STRANGE HAPPENINGS

Perpetual stasis
in blank stares.
Who was yawning to moon ?

Balmy night will unlock
the secrets of graphic images.
Life casts a spell on you.

Like a round worm 
in search of a ceramic cow.
Let me mix the money with fame.

The unfelt pleasure
of a crooked script –
in twilight zone. Every person

was wearing a cloud. Deftly

SPLINTERING

You always repeat the moons

I will not drop my lids.

I was talking to myself
about the perversity of skimming

on milk white daisies-
to protest against the fields
not ploughed deeply and scattering

One day panther will die

swaying, leaning on one side
and then collapsing.

No pheromones will come out

What was the secret of the

BACKTRACKING

Leave something for me to imagine.
A skeleton in a pond
leaps to the moon.

In an air bubble 
lies the history of a suspended

A war is declared on the
family of words, not spoken
to anguish of man.

I thought of my sun 
averting a disaster. The sprouts

The body of truth turns into a snake.

The revolution within, shows

The one who can be the man to 
sweep you off your feet. I wish 
I could be around you night and 
day. For the way I look at you, 
just wanting to be the one you 
look at the same way. Having 
my smile that makes you weak 
at the knees. And be the one 
that is a constant presence in 
your dreams. I want to be the 
one that is number one in your 
life. Being that one to call you 
my wife. So we can gravitate to 
the sun. Let the heat melt our 
hearts into one.  But truth is I 
am really just none.  Because 
your heart for me has no love. 
And I don't blame you, I blame 
me. Because you laid out your 
feelings clear and simply. I just 
simply don't want to lose the 
feeling. That one day you'll 
have a change of feelings. But I 
need to realize when to say it's 
done. And just realize I am not

FIRE AND STRAW

Lovers of death were on prowl:
nothing was finished.Smart words
were bouncing back. Quotes by the fire
had stripped down the carnage. More
bombs in courtyard and hope was confronting
death. Few branded names were causing
rift in the ranks and I must forget
about the waterboarding too.

After the outrage you would not trust
them to govern themselves. The towns were
still sleeping accustomed to the knocks
on the doors. The water birds were not
coming this winter. Smoke and fire. Sound
and fury with flashbacks of flood of red streams.
I was tumbling down beyond challenge.
With message of menace they will do no wrong !

I AM THE LOVER

After separation from death
rain-scented moon was rising
in broken sky. Night birds started
fluting one to another relentlessly;

earth unjointed, was speechless, in
failures we meet often, a little while.
I was ascetic scaling blood pollution,
the life had no mercy, incapable of healing.

You surge for the bleeding miner, the
gold missing, priest was innocent, behind
the peels lies the empty hand, insanity in
parallel depression will find a new praise.

The infinite solitude of the soldier in war
fights the demons of blind desires. One by
one  they kill you from the mountain. You
rise from the ocean under twilight of winged stars.

Who was calling the shots ?

Do you know the words
between intermissions, carry a secret-

finds the hidden meaning.

It was grave

Never cruel were the times before
when blind needles were unstitching

Could it have never been real,
All love I did once feel.
When will the truth be out?
So I can no longer doubt.
I could never see his eyes,
So I'd never know his lies.
Fake my love is not,
My stomach yet is a knot.
I've never been so scared,
I want my heart to be spared.
The truth I want to know,
But all I hear is no, no, no.
I'm in a strained relationship,
Bound to sink like a great ship.
Always to be apart,
To never hear the other's heart.
If I stumble and trip,
Will I be saved by his grip?
Or will I sink like a ship,
So my heart he can rip?
Wanting to escape it all,
So I can no longer fall.
When will I have no fears,
When can I stop all tears.
This is not meant to be,
He never did love me.
All the love I did once feel,
I now know was never real.
I no longer have doubt,
The truth at last comes out.

COURTING FIDELITY

It was 
a graceful exit
with audacious idiocity.
A cyclops was going 
for a dress disaster.

Visitation 
of flesh, mars the beauty.
Cheating starts
between the pails of tears.
I start hitting the planet.

Let the bride
sleep in fog. A volcano
was going to shed
the sperms on your
shirt.

A PAIN WITHIN PAIN

A golden bullet will bite 
the adolescence for the sake of
prudence. Inebriated
everybody wanted to go in a state of bliss.

It was a targeted killing
of a dream. Redolent of a prophet
who will not answer the call
of a burning dune.

The holy moonless night will wash
the sins of a city today. I am not
going  to meet the death tonight.
I am the eye and I am the nude.

Like truth on the other side of
exhibits. Pure beak was ready 
to eat a virgin lie. Again we are
sitting to solve the mystery of adultery.

A SPIRITS TALE

They brought back saddle
without the warrior.
Wrinkled eyes of a broken mother
frozen with tears, pick up the pieces of carpet
woven with blood.

Lotuses are disappearing
from the serene lake; migrated to seeds.
There are no visitors.

Who was losing the battle?
Have not you heard about militancy
and mutilated god? We gave him
our sons and daughters, still he was hungry.

The mankind celebrates the decline,
mourning hills,
dances with the bones of ancestors.

Black Rose of Love

       The dread black rose has such  dark meaning to it.
       It can never find a way to a heart .
       The Thorns are deadly t all who touch and hold .
        The Black pedals on that on the rose show pain and suffering and loss .  
        A Creation of such darkness such Agony and Despite  in it .
        How  does a person turn such a creation a Black Rose into a Red  Rose .
        The Black Rose of Love is  heart ache , pain , hatred  for your love of people and things .
 For that is the Black rose of love

IMPLOSION

Untimely.
Illegitimate.
           I will not ask

The hymn

Imitation.
Not real pearls.

CHARITY

Colors of fall 
yellow, orange, red and brown
and then unending drop.
I used to laugh on unheard jokes.

The crowd thins
as tall stalwarts
autumn-wished, begin to shed

The naked spirit roars on the hill.
Age will be no bar,
the war is still on –
stitching the tears.

I can hear the whispers.
It was the shirt of death,

The Truth

Whats this love for? Is it worth it this time?
Are you gonna break my heart? 
Are you truly gonna be mine? 
Guys will say anything behind those jail walls , but 
the sad thing is I wouldn't believe you even if you 
weren't in jail at all.
You've done some horrible things Bobby. 
You truly broke my heart.
When I lost you my whole damn world feel apart.
I'm not saying that to make you feel bad.
I'm saying that cause when I lost my whole world got sad.
I'm not perfect never have been but , I truly loved you 
and still remained your friend.
Now 7 years later the same words you once said.
I love you Megan , I need you so bad.
The sound of your voice is still the same and hidden in your words are lies.
Things are different this time. I'm not the same girl.
If you try to play games with me I promise I will get the highest score.
I won't fall for it this time I'm mean it I do.
I won't let another guy put me threw what you put me threw , not even you.
If you love me we can hold each other threw all this bad weather.
We can get threw it together , but if you hurt me its gonna be bad. 
Not trying to sound mean but my pride is all that I have. 
I promise to love you & be there till the end , and if *****gets to 
deep I promise to remain your friend. 
I hope you do the same , but I hope even more you mean what your saying.
Just be honest Bobby thats all I ask. If you do that I willing to let go of the past.
I wont bring it up no more , if you can show me there's a reason I fell in love with you.
I want to know there is love behind all this pain we've been threw.
If you can do that then the sun will truly shine , and the gas is greener on the other side.
Most of I will be your everything and you'll be mine.
I'll love and cherish you and when you do time I'll do time.
Like Bonnie & Clyde if you show me you love me , I'll ride or die. 
To the end of time , you could be the only man that's on my mind.
That's precious. Getting me to say some *****like that is a blessing.
I hope you learned your lesson. Your 34 I hope your ready to man up , and be all 
that you can be and more. You owe to it yourself but even more to your kids.
You need to show them their dad's not as bad as everyone says he is. 
I know together we can make it. If I didn't it would be heartbreak that I'm risking
taking. 
So please hear my words their is more to life than trying to put yourself in the dirt.
Stand up and realize what your worth I want you to love yourself and remember I 
loved you first.

SCULPTURING

      It does not work; 
the manipulation of the fast.
     The genomic fugitive
nurtures a home of light, windswept pyre.

      Under the prophet
a gloom unloosens the absolute.
      Now as you weave
a pattern of lies, the page hits.

      The book is thrown into
fire. The words swim, break the grief
       of naked sun. There

a river flows. I become voiceless.
      You cannot build a bridge.

STATECRAFT

Delta. I was the fourth child.
The delta connection of a
triangular love. No blues.
Only cottony belly.

My copper coins. I want to save
them for making talismans.
My arms are entwined like
a python around the neck of a medusa.

That hairy push of a trident.

Statesmen. They change their colour

POETRY BOOM

Absurdity had a presence.
I was trying

The living stone-
had a personality,

It was crippling. 
A wide swath of landscape

FORGETTING THE HYMN

Spherules start a pincer attack
   on the modesty of an epiphany.
      The manifestation was incomplete.

The windows were very small in-
   the wind-palace. Only ringdoves
      were sitting on the sills, cooing all day.

They were sitting in a row; cross-
   legged, the naked monks. As a penance
      they were getting the scalp hair pinched off.

Swearing will not help. You need to
   suffer like a forgotten language,
      like grass blades who bend again & again.

Poem            

TO WRITE A POEM
One might think a good place to start
Is in the head for all the words
Longing to come out.

Yet every poet knows it. 
In the heart the words
Start to grow
They grow and grow
Until-

They have no place else to go-
So they bust forth-
Rejoice!
In the growth that spills
From your heart,
Into words with meanings 
And words with feelings.
The thoughts of TRUTH.

The person inside of you, all the world does know, you now.
It’s where you start to know, YOURSELF.

Anatomy of violence

Stupid thing, our roots

In and out 
Hard headed heart 
Short of air don’t come easy
Blood flow pumping pressure to high 
To bare not a ware danger is near
Red light spells fear for those who
Hold you dear

Breathing is a tough fight 
That cant be right 
Slow heart beats causing it to sleep

Call to stay alive 

Recovery is a hole bunch of pills to swallow 
Putting it all out there bills in the mail
The stress sets in of in every day life 
Moving to fast to catch up

Slowing down is not in option 
Work Sleep Eat seems to be a regular routine
To stay a float a head above water  
These are the times when nothing matters
But to keep a Roof Food Clothing and your Health above 
All God For in time it will All get harder

why women cheat

Why do women cheat? 
Is it unintact relationships
Just looking to be swept off their feet
In search of intamacy or just 
sympathy

More Physical attraction
Is status or attentiveness
Are they looking for a one night 
stand...no wait a minute
Thats a man

A unfaithful man causes emotional 
damage that with time can be healed
Women seek relationships with 
intent of revenge or to replace 
With no conscience of how they 
make a us feel.

We men are far from perfect
We break up many of homes
When we are the victims
We can only blame ourselves
So dont gripe or groan

To a woman we are always the 
cause
Either we dont make them 
happy,make them feel special,dont 
listen,or flat out dont seem to care

All could have been saved showing 
her that you care with opening of a 
door,heart to heart conversation,  
sharing  an intamate kiss and 
breathed the same air

Faith, love, loyalty
Honor,courage,commitment
Is what all relationhip should never 
lack
It will then go to shambles
That will be the cause or reasons To 
get you heart ripped from your chest 
and stabbed in the back

FRAGILE HEART

As you walked into the light that shined upon the street
Your eyes met mine and my heart skipped a beat
You were just like an Angel being sent from above
Reminding me the feeling of being in love
So I kept my distance whenever you came near
Afraid from my feelings because love's what I fear
I kept my heart locked with a key I would not give
Scared that you may hurt me so I refused to let you in
But when it finally came down to telling you goodbye
I opened up my heart to you and allowed myself to try
Now my heart is aching for someone I barely know
I hope I never half to learn to let you go
The way I feel for you I can't quiet explain
It makes my heart accelerate and it's driving me insane
though distance may separate us at times while we're apart
But I'll treasure every moment and hold you in my heart

When I Looked Into your Eyes


When you came to your door tonight,
And your beautiful eyes gazed at me
From the darkness within,
The world around me came to a stop,
For just a few seconds,
As I saw the love from within you.

You looked at me with your warm smile,
Your black hair around your face,
And whispered softly, "hi baby",
And once again,
I was at your mercy.

For when you look into my soul
And I hear the sound of your sweet voice,
My heart opens to you my love,
With all of my dreams now fulfilled.

I never knew that a love like this
Could ever exist,
A love that consumes me,
A love so powerful,
And so overwhelming,
That I fear if I were without it,
My heart would no longer have a meaning
To its existence,
For the love that flows through it now, 
Is what keeps me alive,
Keeps me whole.

As I gaze into your eyes my love,
Down into the depths of your very being,
I can see the love you feel for me,
A love as strong as my own,
A love that fills me so full of emotion,
So full of hope for the future,
That I pray I will spend the rest of my days,
Gazing into your eyes

Motionless within the ambit

the rain squirms and flickers
under the street light
in the vacuous silence

A cricket walks on a cloud 
and starts the lightning.
The urn was blind, fills up with grief.
The goddess climbs out of rainbow
and accepts the message

An innocent deal was brokered

CONTRAPTIONS

When I was arranging daffodils
you send in tanks. 

The sky was overcast.
When I was talking to clouds
Fireballs are delivered.

That signals the specific gravity
is shifting to knobs.
The artist was going
to disappear. 

I think of faithfulls.
How beautifully they talk of
two moons.

I had decided to quit
when you send in a hymn.

GIFTED DEATH

Sometimes
you want to shut the book
and bring out the darkness from bleached words
of a lonely march of the tree.
How to think or not to think 
drinking the wine of pain ?


Baby, do not go into the river.
The alligators will celebrate your birthday
by climbing on you for a purple bath.
Today the sun will not rise from Styx.
An anonymous author will steal a gun
and make a hole in head. 

A black tulip in snow bleeds red 
for a fallen sky and dies to ask some
uncomfortable questions.

Mosaic

Snippets of truth
come to you, 
when you chase the anger and set yourself
on fire. An intimate slap of a fall guy
rages after the defiance.

You are no longer bleeding gold.
A windowless home 
for the defiled, waits for you
at the end of the road.
The democracy has drained out all the symbols.

Behind the grain now lies the eye;
behind the wood now fire rages.
A stretch of pair on ethnic hills.
Wings unfold,
but light goes out.

NEW ENIGMA

To confront his terror 
he changed the game 
plan for a mystery dive.

The custodian of a flame 
will show serendipity. 
Sun was enveloped in a dark matter.

The Teflon  has disappeared.
You will remember the things-
you did not understand.

Someone nips at your heels.
You run faster. The evil 
was flying home.

The house was in disarray.
Give me a comb to keep 
the dark figures out.

NEW APARTHEID

A skylight begins the apartheid
in ironed out differences.
At the shores skulls have reappeared.

Blue flames were eating away the green carbon
of the dying giants. Fake photosynthesis
was canning the skimmed breeze in books

and encapsulated euthanasia was available
over the counters. Eyeshadows were hiding
the dying grace. Tempest would go for a classical dance

only. Counting of heads had begun. Price hike
of black arrows would decide the fate of a nation.
Hunger was writ large on cheekbones of

roaming rocks, shining the landscapes.
The chorus spreads like eau de cologne
over the solitude of my homeland.

Bad guy and a rose

I remember the way it felt
with my head on your chest
I could feel your heart beating
through my body
The way you moved
I moved
One day it stopped
it just went away 
You were the bad guy
and I was the rose
All I had to say was good
Even tho you was the bad guy
and I was the rose
If the liquor that you're 
drinking on 
Makes you start to think
You want what we had before
and you change your mind 
And come to my front door
ill be waiting at the peep hole
You got the kee to my heart 
and soul
Cause I can't stop loving you
I was ment for you 
I keep all the memories
The good and the bad
Just keeps the hope alive 
For the bad guy and the rose 
Why don't you want me to love
you anymore
Remains a mystery 
Like why you and me are 
history 
Can't believe you don't miss me
It destroys me
Can't believe the bad guy is 
alive
and the rose dies

ANARCHY

Wind prowled.
You had a hornet’s sting
buried half in your hand.

Anaphylactic shock.
Translates into night of terror.
You hesitate to smile.

Midnight blues.
You cannot count the stars.
Pesky. Stories spread about moon’s pink thighs.

An ode to the death’s kiss.
You were sleeping in the
sole embrace of pain.

The denizen breaks the rule.
Moves into the sea

Revenges to the person, violated to yourself
or to other person

Once you do forgive yourself 
It's will take you into the different
path down the roads can be splitting up
Wherever, you go to walk on the road
So, that you can reach the calmness peace
Around you and ask you "Are you willing to forgive yourself?"

If your answer is " Yes"
then, inner voice from other side would say, 
" Then, you have to move on your life and your futures are waiting for you"

Before, too late

giving a parting kiss of

Cannot play a game of mockery

LONELINESS

Looking back
At all the pasts and cries
I've had,
I realize that,
I have to move on
To a place where happiness
Is not sad,
A place where tears doesn't       
Express pain, but joy,
A place where truth doesn't lie.

Life isn't worth living when 
Loneliness is all you have, and
nobody,  but nobody is by your side.

You've got everything, but
your heart has not a home,
your soul has not a place,
your  voice has no tone, and       
when you cry,  nobody and nobody,
but only you hear yourself inside.
You have no mind peace,  because
You lack the vital piece 
That makes your world complete.

Life isn't worth living when
Loneliness is all you have,  and
Nobody, but nobody is by your side.

I don't know  what to do, 
Confused, because 
I don't know how
To make my heart
Sing the blues, 
Bringing back to me,
You, my melody so true.
The days seem so long and cold.
My nights are so empty and old,
Because loneliness 
Is the only word my heart is told,
The only feeling my body knows.

Life isn't worth living,
Because I can't make it out here alone.
Loneliness is all I have, and
Nobody, but nobody is by my side.

Is this real, or is this illution?

Where are the trees, where are the birds feathered?
All seem to be so endangered.

What I see is chaos and commotion.
Growing and growing is IT's invation.

I wonder if I can get back those days.
When clouds looked like flying maze.

But here I sit in my cab and gaze.
A sight filled with smoky haze.

I think and think as my watch goes tick.
Who's making my city so sick?

I see my land, I see it sink.
We have to do something, or we'll loose it in a wink.

So lets spread green, and lets all hurry.
Before the nature shows its fury.

By planting trees again and again.
Its not money, its life that we gain.

Isn't this a thought, a thought we must ponder.
I reach my destination, while I still wonder.

Is this my city?
Oh! what a pity.

Is this my homeland?

Wishin you was still here with

While life is passing me by
Cant tell me nothin
Shoulda listened to you

Hard head makes for a softass
And a broken heart
All cuts up and down my arm
Blood dripping askin God
To take me home
Cause I lived 
And I lost
I loved 
And it cost

These scars
Why love gotta be so hard
Livin alone so lonely
No one to hold me noone to

To satisfy the next human soul
What am I here for
Im a woman so ima let these

Wondering why im so lost

Justt want someone to please

Treat me like a queen

To be fine

AWARENESS

There was a pithy art on velvety rock.
The turban was flying 
churning out the outrage.

No sanitized verse was needed 
to explain xenophobia.
We were white tigers.

Lurking behind the moon
was a lute, with broken strings.
A sluice opens the grief of sky.

Show me your palm with full
of curses. Where do you want
to leave the prints of death ?

Alphabets were counting the
steps, towards non-center. The
boundaries were collapsing.

TRACKING

I will climb on the

to light a flame.

A river thinks, sand
was thinking of a tree
dreaming a fall.

In hushed twilight
hunter was coming home
with an empty snare.

Sissy

Like a school boy who turned red as the little girl batted her eyes,
   like puppy love at summer camp two weeks was like a life time,
       like a snow cone on a hot summer day... melting down the sides,
            38 yrs.old, time chiseled yet you bring out the sissy no one can find.
A smile as wide as a 9 yr.old on Christmas morning,
    a laugh as heart felt as a little baby or a child at three, 
          like the early bird eager to raise and to perch and sing, 
               after all you still love to see that sissy smile you bring me,
to buy roses not any ones the ones that I now will make you smile
           to sit and write you a poem of love and forever
                 to dress to impress you even for just awhile
                      no one would even think this of me... a sissy never 
no one knows no one can see,
    you make me fill like a young kid,
         to hold your soft hand is to be free,
             look can you see?heres that sissy I hid.
as life washes over me,
   as it rains problems we all have,
      by my side looking waiting to see,
           that sissy... and it makes you glad,
my heart is you,
   my world ... I see,
      in your eyes of blue, 
           that sissy you see in me,
my valentine,
   you are to me,
        my every thing, 
            love your sissy.

UNEVEN PATH

It was a summer night.
A windswept moonbeam
plummeted. Sexualizing 

an indigo flesh. A butcher
was seducing
a spider, in company of

a holy book. Sunbathing in
mass grave of skulls. The eyes 
peeking out of the caps.

You want to pluck the blue
berries from
volcano mounts. The key player

will burn your script. Body
of milk died on snow. The 
moth was coming out of cocoon.

RANDOM SIN

In pinnate physicals, the thing,
moves like a stark terror
savagely. A primal fear

takes over, because dead don’t
speak. The bullet had passed
through chest. Mutiny of dumb

dandelions, lipless voices in the
sea of madness. Search for a missing
truth begins. The mass grave

contains the dried bones of renegades.
You remember the promise ? Who said
we will end the war ?

Listen, he bows his head, before
the trespassing starts to kidnap the
bed. Jealousy kills the snakes.

HETEROSEXUALITY

Were you ready for a virginity test
to cross the umbrella of harpoons.
A chilled moon

will welcome you after slaying
the hot sun in the valley
of gods. A schism scoops

ignominy. Seeing the lights
which were not there. Almost
sexy, the sky pretends to unrobe.

No weeping. A Caucasian brings
red grapes for a naming
ceremony of black password,

searing the age of complicity.
A rocket propelled grenade
is going to blast a whisper.

GRAY DAWN

Sudden onset of an insertion
going for a kill in bluish green valley. 

Pretend as if you are dead
and start disintegrating.

Your poverty of words disconnects
you from cogitation and you start-

walking in sleep. Cannot reach
the breasts jutting out like pine cones –

dismantling the invasion. You start
manipulating the seeds. Fruits

are nowhere in sight. The risk is
grave crossing the borders of virginity.

Pure aching and one thousand moons.
I have not reached the gates of truth.

ETERNAL DRIFT

A hidden lump was revealed 
in annual ritual.
You flung open the gates-

to take away the regal pain.
Was it a reprisal
for a purple nail ?    

Withdrawl was threatening.
In the line of fire
comes the guilt. 

The suicide in the goddess
womb ? Celebrate if
you pull out.

Floating on the drifting
threat. The welts will sing

BARE TONGUE

It was 
a killing line.
Walking on razor wire,
when toes would not leave the sky
and heels will not touch the ground.

Myths and legends 
were becoming a witchcraft.
Are you ready to eschew the classical script 
and write a new fable, about
a life size robot, 

who will speak for millions 
and put his signature on the wall
of a dying moon for the sake of blue clouds ?
The caldron is empty. No body was
throwing any baby in it.

Stay still.
The bold instincts will come back with vengeance.

HUMILITY

While drinking the long night
you became taller than the eternal
question, bitten by the moon.

Witchhunting will not stop 
in oligarchy. A human right
stands on the ivory gate to enter the dust.

The weightlessness is paraded 
nude amongst the full-lipped
follies of ornamental speech.

The duende was lacking in palace.
Rivals held the moonlight.
Now the muse will become celibate.

A giant mantis hops on a podium 
to bless the dying god, and the candle
burns whole night.

RITE OF PASSAGE

There was insurgency-
in white night.
Moon will stay to witness 

the murder
of a golden leaf.
What was the promise of a ripe
language ? The yellow thrust ?
Keeping a date with death was not all important.

There were
lots of poems to be underlined,
preened and straightened. The dirt had
accumulated. A metaphor
will remove the stains.

Any confession will
take away the mystry. Who killed
the nothing ?

Unrelenting

BLACK RIVER

The supermoon was rising with
a great aplomb to shame the stars.

At night the buttercups wage a war.
Come unpretending, as you, not him,-

Do you know the poison tree blooms,
when the golden eagle rises to take a dive

on the row of funerals.

UNSTITCHING

Do not take a vow of silence.
Death will find its home.

The circus has  taken over

the wounds of earth. A man
walks into sunset carrying

a bowl of tears. The sit-in
was going to resist a poem

Always I am punctuated at night
by a yellow moon standing

in my window. A nude goddess
is going to mourn the death of a thought.

nestled in chains.

The grip was easing out

Asteroids start hitting again.

The runaway tiger had

a new escapology.

A spiral of smoke

You throw the glances back.

Someone will put a knife

Children of a bubble have 
come out on the road.

FIGHTERS AT LARGE

A nebula rises unfazed after fission:
after a fractured debate, greed crouching on
the wrinkled noses of rugged bouncers.
In remote history someone was burning itself out.

A black eye surges forward, sings an ode to
championship. Ankles swell up. Veins become
jelly. The thyme is absent. Stink bellows on
your faces. The green pond becomes red; tragedy of wounds.

Speaker in bloody silence quotes the black sun
out of despair. Everything was in disarray.
In mating of souls flesh flew in rage;
a pink river swamped the inmates of tomorrow.

Enough! Time marches on the dead leaves of sorrow.
My candle burns at both ends. Alien moons
keep a watch. Bloodlines are obliterating. We 
seek the graves of unknown soldiers!

THE DEBRIS

Give me the whole
of a fragment,
I am standing on a frozen lake
of inadequate compassion.

The totality of implications frightens.
Look deep in my eyes
you may find the plumage
of the green peacocks. They are gone.

Walk on the burning coals
to perceive actuality. Life slaps the illusion.
Debris falls from a shooting star,
overwhelming the clouds.
Rains will not come now for a while.

History heaps few glares
on the spinning darkness.

The theater runs for an empty house.

CRISIS

To drill a hope in the drowned soul
was very difficult,
winds had blown away
the talisman.

Stress was palpable,
you could tear the weather with empty hands.
Mists had walked into the houses
to pick up the burning cheeks.

Man was playing with nature
until death time.
Stones piled up,
burning tyres on the road.

Visionaries were celebrating the all blinds
day, in an echo chamber_
and all the people were standing
on no-man’s-land for peaceful coexistence.

"I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D SEE YOU AGAIN"

No, I'm not making that promise again nothing can change my mind, nothing at all. Cause 
LOVE has a way of coming undone until I'm all alone with my Heart, the pain's all here to 
stay. 

"I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D SEE YOU AGAIN", how it hurts everytime you've crossed my Heart 
since then, gotta give it all it takes to hold what might have been, and "I ALWAYS THOUGHT 
I'D SEE YOU AGAIN".

Now there's no need to run to the phone, no need to hold your breath, hoping it's you, each 
time I see someone we used to know, or go some place we used to go, it's not the same.

"I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D SEE YOU AGAIN", how it hurts everytime you've crossed my Heart 
since then, gotta give it all it takes to hold what might have been, and "I ALWAYS THOUGHT 
I'D SEE YOU AGAIN".

LOVE doesn't come when you need LOVE, it's not always there when you fall, try as you may 
you've got nothing to say, nothing at all.

"I ALWAYS THOUGHT I'D SEE YOU AGAIN", how it hurts everytime you've crossed my Heart 
since then, gotta give it all it takes to hold what might have been, and "I ALWAYS THOUGHT 
I'D SEE YOU AGAIN", I realize now that "I'M NOT ALWAYS GONNA SEE YOU AGAIN" THE END.

NOT ANYBODY

Sun was setting over the cacti and critiques.
A cryptogram said, dignity first without
any damage to faithful aloneness. Protection
was not sacrifice, you have to plummet from a cliff.

A plaque has no mortality. The pressing of
lips places pain ahead of hope. The smiles 
have a coercive expedience. I become voiceless
in a delirium of hooves.Sex green death opens

a door. Fear of feathers surprises, would
not measure the sky. Bound by winds the giant
trees search for the soil. Any grass can send

the butterflies. The bald piston throws the
blood on the spikes. Spiders are unwinding
by kisses. Beds are empty.

The voices sting. He was arranging his
white flowing beard, ready to make a compromise.
The ravaged landscape now waits for the

Just Friends

She says she just wants to be friends, no title, but I bet 
you she never had a man worship the ground she walks 
on no false idols. So I do those little things, not looking 
for recognition just wanna show her what she's missing 
no premonition, more like repetition, but she reminds me 
friendship is still the mission. Listen, I play the fence so 
vividly, she's holding her emotions but I know she's 
feeling me. Timing is everything no one likes the dating 
scene, so cliche right just a Queen looking for her King. 
But she doesn't wanna be crowned, no not yet, her exes 
had her heart in jeopardy like Alex Trabek, never let em 
see you sweat, that's how they think nowadays, seeking 
love but @ the same time the heart is a full court mess. 
Just friends, that's what she says she wants to be, maybe 
because commitment nowadays looks far from free, and 
she isn't ready for all of me. Patience is still a virtue, even 
if the heart has your mind going around in circles. I been 
told I'm the hopeless romantic, so excuse the chivalry I 
display even sometimes I can't stand it. But I'm just being 
me right, we just friends but it feels like prom night, I'm 
wrong you're right I need to stop it, making you a priority 
when you just wanna be my option. But its so evident, I 
just want a lil more from you, we don't have to commit 
no ulterior motives but I wanna be the one who you can 
run to.

Detaches,
a part of me. To find some space.
Time cracks a dark matter with unknown speed,
colliding to release the invisible. Chilled
particles land on distant psyche. I will

It hurts when I think between choice

At dusk the stone becomes a star.
I kiss a beam and bid goodbye to stilled doors,

plunged in a dry desert, moving
through dooms. Yes and no confirmed to uncertainty.
Another explosion will expand into

There was a portrait under the landscape.
Whispering of clouds,
writhing body and

The sorrows hold out
a veiled threat.
Mortality itself will finish the epic abstraction?
I am not sure, and then the fog rises.

Afraid of flames -
a man was burning alive in inferno,

A hairy bigfoot runs through the passions.

The fractured faith scatters wild words
like childhood screams.
The very living was night of kills
a freedom in movement of time.

I WILL BE A MAN
Tough time never last but tough people do
LOrd give the guidance to know when to
Hold on and when to let go of my madness
And the grace to make the right decision
With brave heart and dignity as a man
Because if it is going to be, its up to me
I will be a man of courage

I will be a man when the sun
Comes scorching on me fiercely
I will be a man when the moon
Is gone to its abode
I will be a man when the rain is gone
I have my self to love and care
No one cares about my humble self
Rather they exploit me and made
Me sing horribly in tears

I have myself to blame when i fail
I will go there where am needed
I will scream louder than the eagles
Even when the whirlwind keeps tossing and
Torturing my guts like an empty can
Even when life tosses me from east to west 
I will move on with Courage

If things is going to change, is up to me
I am my own sailor in the ship
I am my own pilot in life journey
I drive my own car day and dusk
Everything is fair in war and love
war and love make everything fair
God fill the lacuna, he that 
Knows when the little sparrow falls
And cloths the lilies of the field
Is ever hopeful and watchful

Every cloud has a silver lining
I will survive, i'll make it thro'
Just give me time, i will get over it
I will be a man in every situation
That is my watchword in the darkness 
I have myself to blame when the other phase 
Opens and i leave no trail of goodness.

Shades of blue were
