Laying Here

Laying here ...
On the grass 
Its such a peaceful night 
Laying here ...
Slowly I inhale, exhale, 
Look at all the beautiful diamonds 
in the sky
I soon begin to visualize
Your perfect face, 
your perfect smile
My mind quickly begins to 
rewind
To the days when we were so 
much more than Once upon a 
time. 

I have but one regret in life 
I let insecurities dictate how I 
walked the line
Hand in hand 
with ignorance and pride
So many feelings I held inside
The love of my life, I self 
denied.

If only I had told you a long time 
ago 
Your name is written on my 
heart, 
Your silhouette imprinted within 
my soul
Maybe you would have never closed your door 
                  on me ....
             
              I cant get in..... 

He has changed the lock
And now she holds the key.

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.

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

Just a day
“Good Night Mom and Dad” I said before I went to bed. “We love you” they said as they closed the door
Mom comes in and wakes me up “Time to go to school” as my feet hit the floor
I got dressed and ate breakfast and got my book bag and now we are on the go
We sit in the car listening to music “It’s Friday I think I’m a little excited tho
“Alright baby we here” as mom open the door to let me get out
She closed the door and kissed me on the head told me she loved me before she pulled off
Another day of school and it close to Christmas
I can’t wait to see Ashley and Alexus, today is show and tell as I said in a whisper
We had learning center day and Boy! Was it fun!
Today was a free day and on Friday there isn’t much to learn
The room was quite when the was a knock at the door, the door opened
A man with a big gun was standing there; my classmates panicked and started to run
I heard a lot of noises and a lot of screams
I felt a sharp pain in my back as I dropped to my knees
In the distant I heard more screams and then everything went silent
Then I closed my eyes it went dark and on the cold floor I was dying
The other side
It’s Thursday night and off to bed we go 
I kiss my 5 year old son Jaden and told him I loved him so
Alarm clock goes off and it’s around 6:15 in the morning 
I shower got dress and woke up Jaden my little darling
Its Friday, I fixed him breakfast and we headed out for the this last day until the weekend
I enjoyed our little drives to school as we sat in the car singing
I opened the door to let him out once more
Kissed him on the head and told him I loved him ill pick him up around four
I’m at work drinking coffee just talked to my husband on the phone
Got at my desk started to work and the my office phone rung
It’s about 9:30 and it was Jaden’s school
I got the news he was dead and I started to puke
I’m crying uncontrollably don’t know my next move
My son is dead, I can’t believe this news
I hurried to the school in the best of my ability 
I saw the school surrounded by medics, reporters, and police
I ran to a officer and demanded to see my son
He said “I’m sorry ma’am” I can’t do this at this time
At 9:32 my one and only son Jaden was pronounced dead
The shooter was 20 and took my son’s life in his own hands
The questions continue to flow through my head as I search for answers
I don’t need answers I need my son and his laughter
I am now sitting on his bed trying to swallow tears
My husband holds me close as reality nears
My little boy is gone among the other 19 kids
Heaven has 20 new angels now I hope he knew how much I love him  as much as  I did

What if I

What if I disappeared?
Would you look for me?
Would you call my name into 
the galaxies afar and would you 
think of me as you fall asleep in 
your bed at night.

Would you imagine my voice 
carried on the wind could you 
feel me all around

As I travel on roads singing 
your song burning the bridges 
that tear at my heart.

Would you watch the midnight 
news hoping to see my face 
hoping I'm still alive somewhere out there 
in space 

Could you replace me with 
someone else holding your 
hand kissing your nightmares 
away 

Would you forget my name in 
passing as I'm running from 
everything praying it won't 
catch me

Ill see your face in every rear 
view mirror but blow it away 
with the smoke from my 
ciggarette hanging from my lips

You'd never feel my gentle 
caress against your your 
fevered skin never hear me 
laughing at the crazy things 
you say you wouldn't catch my 
tears as they were falling an 
empty space takes your place 

Would you look for me if I 
disappeared today?

In your memory

Thank you for the beautiful memory
you left on my mind
you are not dead
 but you are not here,

to me you are gone,
cos i cant feel you the way i used to,
everything you used to do are left untouched
the space you ocupied is empty,

our yesterday is fading away like the rainbow
so beautiful but so short,
how can i forget the endless yesterday?
when you are here with me.


in loving memory of my sister (you are not an angel but you did what an angel can do,you fly to heaven.)

when i die

I wear a hoody so if I get arrested for a wrong crime
it means I’m automatically guilty
They say I’m the strong kind
But what if it’s the stuff I’m meant to survive that actually kills me?
They ask why I do stupid things and regress
They point and say damn he’s stressed
Then they ask how can you be depressed
When you’re dating a girl with double d breasts
I reply there won’t be a ring for her
I don’t feel a thing for her
It’s just a fling to me
She acts like I’m a king to her
It’s funny and kind of incredible
That these girls put me on a pedestal
But to me what’s most memorable
Is they look shocked when I fall
They think I’m some kind of prince charming
When not long ago I was depressed and self harming
I didn’t ask to be placed up there
Wish I was the guy to tell you you’re beautiful when your make up clears
When I’m gone don’t waste your tears
 I hope you find happiness and escape your fears
So when I die don’t act like I’m the greatest person who ever lived
Don’t paint me with accomplishments I never did
Be honest I could have been a better kid
Make sure all of my faults, weaknesses and downfalls are mentioned
I’m sorry if I never reach the end of my road to redemption
Remember I survived and fought through the depression
Forget the people who only care about what I left them
When I die I hope girlfriends, exs all the people I hurt
Realise I just never knew how to show them how much they’re worth
I hope when I die you can accept my apologies and love
I’ll see you when you you follow me up

final goodbye

My outside smile doesn’t match on the inside
Growing up all I wanted was a dad by my side
But I never had you in my life
Sit with my pad and I write
That’s what hurts the most
I went on a search for you father
It would have been easier to search for ghosts
What made it harder
Is you had a chance to be a dad
But you rejected it
I’m trying to advance through the sad
While accepting it
I needed you the most
Now I’m not affectionate 
To anyone who tries to get close
People always leave. I’m expecting it
Talk about my dad I act like I don’t miss him
But it’s eating me up inside
Can my feelings be justified?
How could I say goodbye
When you ****ing died
When we rarely said a simple hi
We got to see each other a few times a year
You turned up drunk. Blind from beer
At times I wish I could rewind to there
But I let my smile out shine my tears
The death of you was the birth of me
I try and figure what’s best to do
But people see the worst in me
Sober and clean
They want the dirt on me
A coward is something I’ll never be
But a boy in need of a dad I’ll probably forever be
Everything I’m yet to achieve. And everything I already have
Will it make up for never having a dad?

Wading in the Water

I'm wading in the water --
World at my fingertips.
The sun drying out my hair,
Water rolling off my lips.

The world would be like so --
If it were without flaw.
The truth, that's covered from your eyes
Is not like this at all.

I'm sinking down into the depths -- 
The darkness of unknown.
I cannot help but to feel
Confined, so lost, alone.

My head goes under as I sink --
I cannot see my way.
Underneath the water I cannot tell,
Is it night or day?

I reach my hand up to the light -- 
Where black turns into blue.
I search for help, but I find
You ignore my call to you.

I see a dock and I can grab --
A tiny piece of wood.
But as I pull myself to Earth,
It breaks, it does no good.

I'm drowning in the ocean --
And all I see is you.
The way you seem to smile at me,
I must look good in blue.

love child

tempted mistress bore a son
acid spit from serpents tongue
sinners sin with no remorse
natures crule and twisted course
passions lust fades away
embedded in the soul to stay
pain conceived of rage
trapped with in a lovers cage
hatreds blade sheds scarlet tears
glaring eyes, ringing ears
adultery's sorrowed tail
an innocents life impaled

Little Boy

Little boy hold my hand 
Walk with me sweet darling. 
Little boy hold my hand 
We'll make it there by morning. 

Little boy say farewell 
A whisper shall be fitting. 
Little boy say farewell 
For there is no time for sitting. 

Little boy start walking 
For the sky is fading. 
Little boy start walking 
For your father there is waiting.

leaving feels right

Leaving feels right 
I leave you because the walls are closing in.
I feel your love is wrong and I know living is right.
I feel now that I am gone I can be free once more.
To find a love that will be right on so wrong.
Tightness of our love was wrong but was so right.
Touching you was like a whip that ripped my heart when I was wrong but doing right.
So good bye my love maybe wrong but it does not feel right.

Self Preservation

Self preservation
I'll go on with my life
What you took from me
Just gave me insight.

I am stronger,smarter more confident too
What you took from me
Has made me brand new.

My eyes are open
My heart is safe
I am now in a whole new phase.

I choose to be happy
More cautious,it seems
I won't change me, to play anyones schemes.

I'll smile,live and love
No one will take that away
I'm the best of me 
and I'll stay that way.

Self preservation, isn't easy
Thats true...
But in life,it's needed
What more can we do.

A lesson learned ,never to late in life
Live,love and be happy
It's a beautiful life.
The sun,the moon, the water that flows
The green grass and flowers,just watching them grow.

The snow in winter,cold air we breathe
Self preservation,is a beautiful thing.

What you took from me was more than a dream
It happpened in life
But was a goodthing.

I'm a survivor, you're in the past
Self preservation, has gotten me through...
So all I can say is "I Thank You".....

The Past Is Ash

The past is ash, you gotta rise like the phoenix, don’t like it call your mama and ask for a Kleenex. The time is long past due to stop thinkin’ and start doin’, start rootin’ for the man inside and stop all the internal booin’. You sound like everybody else with a story, braggin’ about past glory. What about today? Tomorrow will be today again, are you gonna be your worst enemy or be your best friend? Nobody believes you, you don’t even believe yourself, you need to take that bull*****and put in on the shelf. You can only judge and fix yourself, work on that person, no one else. You need to man up and fill your cup with the nectar that life has to offer. You want to win and be stronger, not lose and be softer. You want the fruit of your labor, to love yourself and your neighbor, to love the fan and the hater, to love what you got cuz you got it and you took it and made it cuz there was no tomorrow or later, only back then, back when, back in the day suffering every which way with your back against the wall that you made with your sorrow and your rage. Do what you do and stop being blue, you need a new blueprint printed out and co-signed by the future you, your future self, the architect and the tenant. You know what you got? A new start and a new shot. A chance to stop being a robot. A new lease on life with no lease payments and at the very least, no leash to stop you from running free in a new lot. Now it’s just you, yourself and the pie in the sky. Become the apple of your own eye, the catcher of your own rye, the ink in your own dye, the voice that will question your feelings inside and shine brightly upon all the lies in your mind. Create your future fate before time flies by and history says it’s too late, these words are your bond and your mind is a clean slate. Carve them out and breathe in each letter, fake it till you’re feeling better. Those who wronged you don’t exist, they are not your enemy, burn that list, of people you think owe you something...no one does, except one person, the hardest to find, and while you’ve been dying and losing your mind, and stressing and flexing on struggle and strife, he was right there in the mirror the whole damn time.

Woeful Year

Farewell, thou woeful year,
Of your woes I got my full share
And grieved my heart in pain and care

But now, of your days, I have spend the last
That onwards you be known my past
As I, with glee, set my back upon your sight
And look ahead on tomorrow’s year
With the last shred of my bartered hope

It was indeed in vain
That we labored and toiled
As we strove to climb the ever-rising mountain
And, in hope of some paltry prize
Raced in pursuit of howling gales,
Or vainly still, upon a rained day
Mopped the sodden floors of roofless huts
Till our bloody-sweat did stream
The valleys of this our cursed land
As we wailed our somber song of woe
In sighed notes and groaned tones!
And for dance our flimsy starved selves
Did sway and limb in the wind,
Cracking our horned hands 
In applause to our fated doom!

But farewell then, woeful year
It is here that we do apart:
You to the tales of a past,
And me to the beckoning of a future
Farewell indeed,
Year of my woes!

To Late

 I know now,
that you loved me,
with your heart and soul,
and I know in your mind,
that you had a goal,
you wanted me more,
then just in your life,
you wanted to make me,
your forever wife,
I know all this,
because you told me,
all the time,
but I was unwilling,
to make that climb,
you gave me everything,
on a silver platter,
I never thought in my mind,
that I'de see your brains splatter,
because with one little word,
I tore your heart in two, I never meant to hurt you,
or to make you blue,
I believe you were wrong,
when you said,"you won", 
I just think it was an excuse,
an excuse to run,
So with that gun,
to your head,
you left this world,
way to soon,
now me and you will never watch,
another rising of the moon,
so in this poem,
I just want to let you know,
I loved you much{ditto},
but I have to let you go..
good-bye my love

Where was his helmet

Into the midnight cold he rides; 
a chance travel, on the wild side; 
this is the vision, that always repeats, 
whenever I think about that curvy Rockford Street. 
Alone he travels on his way home, 
until a mystery sends him flying into the air, 
and has him crashing into the ground far from the road. 
Where was his helmet? O’ where was his helmet? 
In pain he lays all alone, 
until two-friends rush to his aid, 
and frantically made emergency calls from his phone; 
paramedics arrive and relieve his friends, 
as his journey into the unknown slowly begins. 
Where was his helmet? O’ where was his helmet? 
Now in a hospital lying on a bed, 
with nothing but sheer pain streaking through his head, 
mom rushes into the hospital with one of her sons by her side, 
the other son was in Iraq unaware awaiting R&R and waiting on his airplane ride; 
a devastated mother and a saddened brother both watched as the youngest sighed, 
eyes watery with tears as they watched him slip into the cold night. 
Where was his helmet? O’ where was his helmet? 
I received the terrible news while I was in Ballad waiting for a good plane, 
instead I was rushed to an awful flight and my heart felt immense pain; 
I begged and I pleaded with God, 
Please O’ please let this plane crash and let everyone but me live, 
I love my youngest brother take me O’ Lord, take me instead; 
he is too young God; he hasn't truly experienced life, 
my goodness he was only twenty-eight and never had his own family, nope not even a wife; 
by the time I made it to Rockford it was too late, 
my youngest brother was forever gone as a chance travel sealed his fate; 
tears in my eyes the pain still burns deep I must admit, 
with only one question in my mind; 
Where was his helmet? O’ where was his helmet?

Runway

I fell in love with an angel 
With glissading beauty 
With her heavenly love position
She did something to me
Bringing light to life
Being there for it all
My happiest moment
My saddest day
Even when we took our great fall
My angel has spread her wings
Beginning a new flight
With all her beauty
She will brighten another life
If you ever need me
Forget all my lies
Just give me a shout
I’ll be on the runway
Standing by

Blind

Blindness can be a blessing
the world focused in so many different perceptions
what a horror that I can see
what you must truly be

To me you were a treasure
whose love only I could feel
But love looks different under a haze
and as that fog begins to lift
the touch from you 
that use to thrill me
has simply dimmed
now that I can see you clearly

I use hear the sweet tone 
hidden so deep in your voice
I wondered if the world was deaf
to the perfection that was you
but that beauty starts to fade
that deeper sense in me has gone away

The smell was pure instinct
there was nothing about you
I didn't want to taste
that desire has dimmed away
as my sight takes its place

To be blind, what a way to see
you use to sweep me of my feet
and as much as I want to need
have that perception though it limits me
now I can see and I don't need
not you, anymore

Time

She never asked for silks or gold.
She never asked for moon or sky.
Her choice was wine
In place of love
Wine......
And time
For love to die.
And now there's time,
And time,
And time.
And all the wine,
And all the tears,
And faceless lips,
And passing arms.
And all the wasted,
Empty years.
With no love left
To still the cries,
Just nights that have a thousand whys.
No more reasons to say goodbye.

TIRED

  Lord I'm so tired of being so damn tired. Sure wish I knew how not to get wired.  The sun goes up,the sun goes down,this old world keeps spinning round.One of these days I'm gonna hit the ground and just lay there with this big frown.I'm thinking I need to step off this ride and just lay my troubles all to the side.But it's ok this won't last long,Because I'm gonna get my ass up and just go home,And when noone ever get's to see me again,they can all just say that they knew me when.So you take care and don't you cry,because you will get to see me again on the other side.............     "GOODBYE".    2013

Not Meant to Be

I can't do this
I'm walking away
There is no reason for me to stay.....
Your words are many
Your actions are few
There wasn't a thing I didn't do.
I gave you my heart 
Was there when you called
It meant nothing to you at all......
We're so very different
But at least I tried
Now it's time to "Say Goodbye"

Our time together, I'll never forget
I'll miss you my friend. forever more
But, we just have to close this door...

I don't feel sad
No tears I cry
It's just time to say "goodbye".

We're different people than what we were
There is no reason to say a word
Our dreams are different
We just didn't see
It's okay if there's no "you & me"..

We make our choices
Our life goes on
We do whats best and just move on.....

"DEDICATED TO THOSE RELATIONSHIPS THAT JUST DIDN'T WORK"   it's okay!!!!
