leave over the spot you used to stay, you stay not longer there there, it's just your
shadow that have your silhouette, sometimes i think i hear your sweet voice once again

became so happy and i say your name aloud hopeing that were you, day by day i sit here
waiting for you calling me once again. one more time is enough, i see the rain falling on
a cold day and i wish you were there with me, hugging me as you used to do and warming me
just to see me happy, when i take a shower i think about you, and don't just fall water
drops also fall tears because i know i lost the sweetest person in my life.
PS: ashton come back please, i miss you so much.

You've got to be kidding
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
Could you replace me with
someone else holding your
hand kissing your nightmares
Would you forget my name in
passing as I'm running from
everything praying it won't
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
Again today same thing happened
The desire of living became strong
On standing on the stone of ridge
Down in the crevice a rivulet song.
A melody, a perpetual message of steady
Live long harping on the same string.
Believe there is a reach in your aim:
A pace of perfectness proving game.
An inspiration for life is tick, tick of heart
A blink of eye teaches see there is path ahead
A stranger with pack back strode in the road of life
Two pieces of bread, a bottle of water
Gave laugh, yes, there is construction ahead
A bunch of grapes chewed twisting face
A grave message was in it, destination is
Again today sun shone spreading faith.
My name is Africa:
A beauty to look at
From East to west
Reaching through vast land and sea
Continuous amazement to those who visit me
All you've ever wanted I have
If I wrote your name
into my heart
Would you stay
If I etched you into
Would you take me
If I turned into
Would you find each
and every spec?
If I wrote songs in
Would you be a
string on my
If I wrapped you in
Would you shine into
If wrote pages
asking about you
Would you extract
If I took you into
Would you steal your
If loved you more
Would you nurture
If you were the sea
and I a fish
If you were a crane*
and I could find you
If you were air and
I could take you
Would you make me
If you were the
voice on my lips
The beauty in my
The picture in my
Would you stay in
that moment forever?
My name is Eddy
And I am full of surprises
But I only go for civilized buddies
Since they need to complete a series of passes
If you want to see these surprises
You need to be very flexible
Because there’s high prices
But that does not have to stop you from eating at my table
I am honored country wide, and internationally
That’s why my presence is a concern for every leader
I am the speech discussed nationally
Since I provide survival for these who step up my ladder
Try me and you shall see
Follow me and you shall bealive
Carry me along and you shall be the witness
Trust me and you shall be the greatest and most respected
If u can’t recognize me well, my name in full is EDUCATION
By N.H Kandjimi
I am human,
aware of imperfection,
even through different races,
their misunderstanding and affections.
My name means bravery,
to stand against fears,
to hide my tears,
to fight off my misery.
My name means to understand,
we all look different,
but we all live in the same world,
the same as our human hands.
My name means to live,
travel in the earth's air,
nothing can compare,
to my freedom will.
Life is unfair and that's fine,
Life is hard, but it's mine,
my mind is my domain,
I may look different, but my beliefs will stay the same,
even in my own grave,
you all will remember my name.

I read your Singleton name,
with an opportune eye I made a friend request my aim,
to now write you a message in this poetic frame!
But I won't deny am in flame,
with the passion of knowing this you on my mainframe,
and a zeal of acquaintance is my aim!
Some may say am insane,
whereas am all the same,
over this Singleton I see in my hall of fame!
But I won't let the chance go,
if she accords me to know,
the Singleton my heart now yearns to know!
(Please, will you let me the chance of knowing you?)
only the half-truths engage the
nightfall the thing of dawn asked to wait in pouring
blows sponsored by sin of brutal torture burning
the genitals pushing sand in mouth blood rimmed
stool I become you sit on eat your dinner howling
the election time you come hands folded
me a hummingbird suspended in air
waiting for the cage to open a little girl
punished to stand in sun carrying bricks on
shoulders slapped to fall unconscious give
me another sky to behold

K is for tasty kakes which I love to eat.
E is for every thing that I think is neat.
L is for love that will forever last.
L is for lemonade which I love to drink fast.
I is for ice cream because ice cream is good.
E is for easter and chocolate nuts (yum)
There is a place in my heart
A lonely place,
that nobody knows exists...
A unique place.
There is a place in my heart
My one, best place,
that waits for you...
To revive it and give it your name

REMEMBER ME (poem
for all poets by
I am a poetic hero;
In my veins flow
rivers of satire
And my words are
My words speak for
the mere men,
And shines light on
Of them that loot our
My words are like
Showing you a path
to the shore of
When sorrow rains
on your heart!
So remember me
when I've gone
The way of my fore-
Beyond the border
of this world!
When I go where
legs shall walk
Into the womb of the
On the lane of
My people let my
In your heart and
recite my verses
When thorns grow
on your earth!
Whisper my name to
Of your unborn, that
I was once thunder,
Before the time of
Nigeria, celebrate me
And when I breathe
Inscribe my name on
I don't understand this..
My head is filled with thought.
But I speak none of it.
My heart is filled with love.
But no one to share it with.
My soul is filled with darkness.
But no light to shed on it.
I hate what I feel.
The pain is real.
Is what I feel.
I don't want to feel like this.
But I have no control over it.
My body is taken over.
Nothing feels real.
I sit in the shadows.
Afraid to see the light.
The silence overwhelms me.
Never knowing what to say.
My dreams turn to nightmares.
Terrifying and dark.
Trying to sleep at night.
It feels like a battle doomed to lose.
Drugs I consume takes the pain
Well they blind me from what's real.
Cuts on my wrist.
The only thing that feels real.
Depression consumes me.
As you can tell.
There's something trying to reach
Not sure what it is.
She is long, lean and very much into exercise
In body building contests, she always takes top prize
Now she is training for a Triathalon
Her mother coaches her from her car eating Bon Bons
She tells her it takes self discipline to succeed
As she is rolling up a joint from her dime bag of weed
She says you can accomplish anything you wanna
She is close to being my girl, my very own Anna Conda
I am usually sitting at her house watching her pet Gerbil
She runs my life, when she's not there, I really get verbal
I tell her Gerbil, Gertrude if you don't like it, then get out
I feel brave with Gertrude, so I really get loud
This has me thinking do I love her or her dominant ways
Sometimes I don't see her for days
So I call her sister for some support, her name is Rhonda
She tells me we better not talk, I don't wanna feel the wraith of Anna Conda
I tell her I am not afraid of her
Besides, she is busy at Shoney's Buffet feeding her mother
So Rhonda and I get together for some sneaky fun
I threaten Gertrude, you better not tell her what we've done
I am true American, I can't tolerate Commie Hoes like Jane Fonda
When will I be loved by Anna Conda
The phone rings, I am disappointed, it's only a bill collector
I didn't understand a word, but I did catch his name, he goes by Hector
So another a person who speaks English, tells me she is 3 months behind on her Honda
I tell the person, I dare you to come and get it, that's a direct quote from Anna Conda
Three days later the car is gone
She kicked my butt from Dusk til Dawn
Now I have a new love, her name is Vonda
The nightmares are still there, the virtual hauntings from Anna Conda
We were young and fell in love
We did all the things new lovers do,
We dreamt of building our family and home
Spending every hour as our love grew,
You loved dancing,all I needed was you
You had a soul with grace and love to match,
I was assured that our future would be forever
You were my first and I was yours,a perfect catch,
I made some mistakes I cannot lie
Sadly,we had to go our separate ways,
I missed you so much,the years were cruel
Knowing I'd never hold you anymore days,
We made lives with lovers then
We saw each other,split seconds glance,
Bringing back all the memories and dreams
Holding you again I knew,there was a slim chance,
I thought about and missed you most every day
I look back at a chance,should never slip away,
Why did I make mistakes I did,I ask
Missing you all those years had faded everything grey,
I hope you're happy and he loves you as I do
I still carry for you a special place in my heart,
For all this time my heart screams your name
I still have the memories at depth inside me,everyday from the start.
NOT IN MY NAME
NOT IN MY NAME WILL I LET
YOU OVERSTEP MY DREAMS
NOT BY MY HEART WILL I ALLOW
YOU TO PULL ME DOWN
IT IS BY MY SENSE OF LIVING
THAT I AM DIGNIFIED
WE ARE ALL GIVEN A CHANCE
TO PAVE OURSELVES BUT
WHO ARE THEY TO TALK BEHIND OUR BACKS
AND MAKE EVERYTHING WE DO SEEM AT FAULT
NOT BY MY NAME WILL I ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN
IT IS BY MY NAME FOR WHO I HAVE BECOME
I HAVE COME TOO FAR FROM WHERE I STARTED FROM
NOT BY MY NAME WILL I ALLOW ANY OF YOU
TO DESTROY WHAT IS NEARLY IN MY HANDS.NOT IN MY NAME
I scoffed at the fact of my simplicity
laughed at the fact of my one deminsion mind
never to figure out what i need to find
to live in a time of such sutrosity
to care when no one cares for me
to reach out but again denied
to hide my eyes and the tears i have cried
to be rejected neglected and lead away unaware
to fill my head with all my fear
undoubtless times i have tried
i call it love suicide
as i stand all alone with only my dignity
my name my real name autry
this is a true story just so everyone knows hes my nephew from doris.
he was born in saint joe's hospital.

nephew i just love him so much i would write in this poem his name but i dont

As I awake with my retina
adjust to the first day of light.
A figure big amongst most
appears in my site. A
connection being made is a
understatement. More like the
beginning of roots implated in
the pavement. For the
chemistry on that day can not
be duplicated or reenacted. But
in a moments notice the
chemistry was distracted. As
the name remained but the
visions, the visions where never
the same. Never the same, but
the name still remained. And as
we let the clock skip for a bit.
And find moments in time
polluted by your shit. Then
came your attitude which
adjusted our latitude. And I still
remained, so where is the
even some regrets. Had my
past, preset and future feel the
effect. I still believed...in every
breath utter word. But what
occurred was the exact
opposites demonstrated by
verbs. And yet I still remain but
that's when your name began
to change. That's when our
existence withered away.
Heartbreaks and drama always
was attained in our every day
saga. Which even makes me
believe our bonds not thicker
than water. Yet I fictionalized
your story. So in history you
can be made into some glory.
But I can't anymore. For my
hopes have sunk to the ocean
floor. Now remains are
heartaches and pains.
Dreaming about another life
where that one moment
remained. Fictionalized hero
truly only a equal. Left
abandoned making my
existence to a mere zero. And
as foolish as it seems even if I
remove my self out of your
visual frame. Your name will
still and always will remain the
There is a story of a boy who
became a man or at least some
A boy who went through his life
never got his emotions caught
So this boy ran
Ran fast as he can
All the way until he became a
Ran so fast he name only
lasted moments in the sand
From which he step
Taken every stride like it was
his last breath
Felt he be this way all the way
till his death
This man if many knew him a
coward they would say
For he never had the courage
Stay for no more than a
For he felt his life was as
valuable as his father did of his
Ashamed that his name was
Since when it's ever mentioned
So he runs deep in the jungles
of his own mind
He runs as if there is a
happiest to find
He runs and runs till his feet
soil in the dirt
He runs because staying in one
place only makes him hurt
This boy became a man in such
an unfortunate way
For his kept on running till he
was buried in his grave.
LORD your name is exalted
LORD your name is divine
LORD you have sent your Son
So, we could shine
LORD you are full of Glory
LORD you are soo Holy
LORD you have saved us from sins
cause you want us to live
Marvelous are your works
Where kindness and goodness dwells
Sacrifices you don't like
our Righteousness makes you delight
You call us name by name
empowered us with divine fame
strengthen our feeble knees
so we bent and ask for peace
LORD I feel like praising you throughout
Grateful to you for you took me out,
LORD I love you soo much
for you were their whenever I was crushed
You took me out of a Slimy pit
So my lamp should never diminish
You presented Your Holy Spirit to me
Therefore my lamp is shinning within me
Trying to share the love you gave
For that's the fruits I desired and craved
Bless me so I can come up to the best
Renew me so I shall never will rust
LORD you have made me complete
When I was just so Obsolete
In YOU I had finally reached
Thankyou LORD for am no more weak.
LOVE you FOREVER LORD.......
I wrote your name in the sky,
but the wind blew it away.I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
and forever it will stay.
It calls your name.
You are set by the widow still so quiet.
Listing to the wind blow as it hits the window.
You hear the sound so humble against the pane
As the wind calls your name.
As you sit on the pouch
The chimes do blow.
They play the music of your name
Recalls your name as it blows
Saying Some day you will hear
Good calls your name
I started my career
As a person that removed wax from ears
It was down in the Texas Panhandle
I would use the wax to make candles
But then no one wanted their ears cleaned
The work was Far and few in between
It will be time to relocate in June to Mount Pleasant
Maybe because they call me Busta Pheasant
June came and went and I am still here
Oops just spilled some coffee on my clothes, time for some all Tempa Cheer
The ladies call my gangsta name stupid
Me and you will be together, I'm just waiting on Cupid
My real name is Harry Bikiniline
Now you know why I am a prime example of out of sight, out of mind
I want to thank my parents for the wonderful present
For my stupid name forcing me to become aka Busta Pheasant
The guys laugh they don't me as a serious threat to their girls
I tell them I bet you wouldn't survive in my world
My life is based on performance excellence
You're just jealous because you can't be called Busta Pheasant
Go ahead and contact 5-2-9 and Puddin' to ride in your Pacer on four doughnuts
wearing your wife beater shirt
I will be stabilized at my home like the Enterprise with Captain Kirk
My Mom and Dad ask me when I am moving out
I tell them as soon as I build some clout
So they kick me out, I am renting a portion of the back yard and living in a tent
I have sign up that reads home of Busta Pheasant
