Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution.
A dame that knows the ropes isn't likely to get tied up.
Every woman knows, an ounce of performance is worth pounds of promises.
When I'm good, I'm very good. But when I'm bad I'm better.
Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can't figure out what from.
Save a boyfriend for a rainy day - and another, in case it doesn't rain.
Ten men waiting for me at the door? Send one of them home, I'm tired.
When they say boldly go where no man's gone before, they don't mean the kitchen.
Honey when I said I wanted something to hang my hat on I didn't mean THAT!
Any port in a storm is a good way to divorce court dearie!
Titillating is not an excuse for going to girlie bars.
Anyone got a buck I could sure use one?
Grab a piece of arse will you, it may be the last thing you ever grab.
Anal retentive? You don't say!
Lip service now there's a concept.....
*Listen for the drum roll!

I know you, you're godless like me, and to the natives We Are The Wandering dead. Headless in sunshine, blind in the wilderness. I know you, you're the sister of death that's true. Your red lips caress mine as I choke upon embers. I'm awaiting life to be stripped from these bones. I smoke the feathers from the angels round here, and laugh with the devil. She sleeps at my feet. I found a home down here. She's the one who'll burn down the temple. She's the one who shall coerce the swarms. I know she'll do anything and more.

T o those women who don’t know, that love was manifested when a man was just an embryo
H is very being was developed to love a woman unconditionally and so, in my poetry
E verything is for my Queen, for I am her King; she is the glow inside of me
H is heart beats to the rhythm of her love, which was manifested from above
E very man knows that woman is his kryptonite; that’s evident in the acrostic I write
A ffectionally, I pull my woman close at night as only she can quench my appetite
R ealistically, she is the life inside of me which is a constant glow
T echnically, our love is like universal poetry and God forbid if I should ever let her go!
O bject of my affection, yet she is more than a mere object
F rom heaven to earth, we’re a heavenly connection which makes us perfect!
A n angel on earth that was sent from above for me, to love from the time of my birth
M an and woman, made for one another neither can happily exist without the other
A nd as I bring this Acrostic to a close, I think about my counter part
N othing can compare to her for she’s the one I chose and she’s forever in my heart!!!

you're everything to me
a hidden longing deep within
just like the air breath
when I feel alone at times
you'll hold my hand tightly and being around
through my laughter or my tears
you'll comfort me and give me faith
you are a precious gift of love
you fill my soul with the meaning of love
for even in the darkest hour
when all of hope seems gone
thought of a still resilience voice
to feel you within my reach
in my heart
you're always with me
there will be a place for you forever
now,a whole new world
just for you and me
this bond between us can't be broken
my life,you'll touch
I will be glad to have you in my life
I can share my interests with you
I'll search no more
cause you are a precious gift of love

Glorious are the days we ride, my love.
You and I riding in the morning light.
Passions racing hearts are thundering.
Sunrise explodes pink and purple streaks across the sky.
You and I smiling, riding together in the first light.
Kindred spirits racing together chasing the morning star.
Intoxicated on the morning air.
Nowhere, but here in this moment.
Glorious is the day we ride.

The bluest skies, don't seem so blue. And the stars seem a little dimmer too. Now that your around , you put 'em all to shame. Let me break it down 'cause what I'm tryin to say is, no one gets me, like you when you kiss me. Girl, you rock me harder than some downtown band. I thought I knew what love was, but I didn't have a clue. I've never found anything that makes me feel like I do about you. You know i love u with all my heart and we got the realest relationship ever and im happy ! And i see that some girl is goin to call out my name all because you wont talk to her because of me lmao she can fall back for real ! haha but i guess we gotta get to sleep and i get to be so lucky to wake up in the mornin laying right next to you love you baby and I always will.

Drunkenly we fall once more
And wake up weaker than before,
Not dense enough to question this,
I simply savour every kiss,
Evidently, in my bed
Lies nothing more than just a friend.

Tears shall never wash away our moments of passion.
Our bond, whispered into Heaven in Angelic fashion.
Unity between our mortal bodies is loving grace.
Courage that binds us shines in our face.
Hearts that are captured true are forever.
Eyes that glisten like ours could not sever.
Deliver constant affections, oh so clever,
Bring the wine of our souls to never end.
You and I are bound with pleasure to spend.
Years shall pass but our ardor will not grow old.
Our cravings may change, though continue bold.
Universal flames that we spark, shall endure.
Remembered beyond our existence so pure,
Fulfilled and destined to be known forevermore.
Listen to the crackling that warms our core.
Angels are speaking to us, giving blessings.
Many shall be jealous, with great digressing’s.
Everyone now knows of our love, it is evermore.

Those deadly eyes of yours,
how they can control me in motion.
Feel weak from your absolute charming green sparkle,
blow me away with blinks of curiosity.
Indulged in them to see my futures growing pains,
you have no idea how deadly your eyes can be,
such beauty with a dominion stare.

I watch from my window above,
as she views the scented flowers that surround her
She is my princess of this exploding colourful garden,
owning all that is around my perfect brunette.
Complementing the vast fragrance nature with her equal beauty.
Looking beyond ,
I gaze at running wildlife clearing the endless fields ,
mountains greeting the skyline.
Our path leads to this incredible breathless life,
a world open for only us to touch.
I take in everything that I desire,
locked in my loving heart.
Sadness crawls into the mind and clears away my unifying paradise.......
Just a midsummers daydream,
one day, could be.

The Girl I Have, is Forged With Such Beauty,
That The Lines That Have Carved her Face,
Force Me To Weep Myself Into Blissful Insanity.
I Can Flick Through Photos of Women Previous,
The Nostalgia Moves Me, and The Electricity,
Vibes Through My Fingertips, I Still Love Them.
- Of Course I Do -
I Never Didn't Love Them, Their Mere Memory,
And Their Physique Not Balanced By Youthful
Appearance Has Given Way to Soul Scarring Features.
Why Did I Have To Pick The Most Attractive Women?
As Harsh as It Is To Admit To Myself, It's Harder To
Remove The Beauty From My Head, Than The love.
- Here We Go... -
Leafing Through The Dead Nostalgic
Images of My Memory, Spread Like
Velvet Crimson Stretching Across An
Indigo Plain. The World Is Drowning,
Yet She Saved Me With a Single Freckle.
- It Reminds Me She Was Real -
Lifeless and Demanding, The Beating
Ended and Took With It His Essence.
Icicles Ruled His Path When She Left,
Gradients of Rock Rose and Trapped Him,
Hell Without Her Beside Me.
- But I'll Always Be a Slave To Her Majesty -
Majestic Indeed, an Entire Culture Built
Inside My Head, Specifically Designed To
Cater For Her Worship. This Soul Has Waited
Aeons For Her Entity, and I'll Strive To
Emancipate Her Existence. I'll Feed between Her
Loins and Make her Scream My Name: An
Accidental Meeting Turned To Freedom of Grace.
- I'll Take Her To My Grave -
For The Girls That Have Made This Existence Just That Little Bit More Breathable...

I'd watch the waters of the bay
mingle with the rocks and sand.
Failing stars misted in gray
Again fail to illuminate that strand.
Lovers Point won't understand.
Lonely people seem to like it there.
I watched them all as they passed by--
Nodding to my equals there,
Gentle ones who came to tearless cry...
For what? Only the rocks know why.
One night I left that lonesome band;
Reaching out to you I touched love's flame.
You held me close and took my hand.
Once 'twas a lonely place of pain,
Until you gave Lover's Point back it's name.
LOVERS POINT REVISITED
I stood above the misty shore,
My time was short as it was late,
And watched the reflections once more--
lover's Points nocturnal state--
Our meeting place of misread fate.
Nice it was when we were there,
Except there's no more 'you and I'.
Only a memory of a brief affair,
Not lasting long as it went awry.
Cold and dark: Lover's Point's sky.
Every so often it seems to me
My life is like the waves off the shore:
One special person comes near to me,
Retreats again, is then no more.
Even the Point knows not what for.

CLARISSA’S VALENTINE DIARY OF “PASSION”
Pretty in red, her tears start to flow
All dressed up and nowhere to go
She got dumped after he had his way
Sweet revenge follows this Valentine’s Day
Into the river his body will go
One knife, an alibi, no-one will know
Now what better day for his bad blood to flow
to be continued…..
Proudly relieved that she didn’t get caught
Alibi solid, her story they bought
Sweet Valentines’ Day will be all she wished for
She’s found a new love, couldn’t ask for much more
Incidentally she’s hoping and praying that he
On this day will make her a new bride-to-be
Nothing good lies ahead, if he doesn’t agree.
to be continued…..
Perfect in white, this she didn’t foresee,
Alone in the church, where the devil is he?
Standing alone in her wedding gown
Somebody whispered the groom had fled town
Into the limo so no-one would know
Once again Valentine tears start to flow
Nobody dumps her, she won’t let this go.
to be continued….
Payback is lurking, his receipt she found
A step behind him she’s Canada bound
She has revenge written all over her face
Smith and Wesson, in her case
It might convince him to take her advice
Or face consequences, without thinking twice
Nasty Clarissa, will he pay the price?
to be continued……

Saw you with a Girl.
Jealousy Strike through me,
I Love you and I think...
it`s still not enough
I`m Broken Hearted
to see you both Kissing.
What did I do?
Am I not Enough for you?
Why?Why are you doing this to me?!
I`m Going Mentally and Physically Crazy,
You Broke my Heart..
With a Simple Knife Slash
You Hurted me and with all my Might...
I Tried,I tried to move on
But why couldn`t I ?!
This is Pissing me off!
Why? Tell me Why Am I sulking Over You?
As ig you are my Life?
It feels like...
My World Revolves Around you

i find the real meaning in life
looking forward to each dreams at night
only to savor you in a world of ideality
velvety dreams might come to reality.
endowed by a little time for me
yet i wish we are so free
on our journey to the ends of eternity
until then i would find certainty.
so i sail on the sea of uncertainty
only to unravel your mystery
mangled by your poignant gestures
unveiling my innermost pictures
causing empty spaces in my living
have you seen my hidden feeling?
Copyright © Ronald Kim Torres
You're not my first
But you are my last.
I been through alot of break ups
but that's all in my past
Laughter that never ends
Because you bring me so much joy
I was lucky to meet you
Now I'm blessed because your my man
It was alot of options
But I was glad to choose you
You might have lied to them
But I believe your words are true
But like opposites attract
And I'm attracted to you
I want you to be the last man in my life
that I say "I Love You" to

Pathos - I feel - people feel for me, prior failure for the world to see.
Only you can see, only you can save; myself from the world and me.
Obtuse days, fills my dull life, fleeting by like a winter sun.
Natal phase it no longer is, our alliance had too far in the past begun.
Abide my time, no longer shall I; shall seek what true heart has always cared -
'Magic carpet of Alladin' to fly away with my Jasmine; and host a toast to us in air.

New seed is sown, a baby born; one and twenty years ago.
I felt the moment, I felt the day, and became a man to grow.
You blossomed, the petals emerged; the seed became a radiant flower.
Angel darling, two months ago, I surrendered myself to your power.
Together betrothed, together we will stay, until time ceases to exist
I make this pledge on your birthday, and seal it with my faithful kiss.

Yes they have their university degrees and wealthy accounts, but they are not yours. darling....
They don’t know you too,
How to please you that is.... and you please them, its rules..
You ask for a dance in the rain and they give you some laime
story of why and no, and maybe so
And who they used to be way back when they where young,
In your admiration for them you wait in faith for a kiss on the cheek, but you got none
They ask you instead if you wanted onions or leeks in this receipe….
Then suddenly your mind goes a drfit like a wodden small boat by the lake
You are thinking about her again, who you never met.
You have been introduced to women,
others but they seem so ruff for my delicate body.
She needs to be soft and be blushed when she see me
She wont think selfishly about herself, it will be about us.
Even when folding lundry and enhaling the scents of lavendar will
lt be insanly passion and a joy
It will be a peak of heaven….
The lints will fall from the clothes freshly done.. and you will see them fall like angels from heaven, in the ray of light, light cracking through the curtains.
She thinks by biting her buttom lip and leaving it wet, unmindfully... I leave her alone to be herself.
The delight to hear her laugh and scream with excitement and happiness
Of just being around me. Makes me feel complete
Her scent of sun dried clothes, her cotton breast holders, her panty with a hole
Im laughing because she is frustrated that she has ruined the perfect dinner
That I love..... and it's okay, but not for her...
She is sick now and I am worried that she will be gone.!!!!!! and she brushs my awful hair, so dry. And short and poorly cut,,,,,,
and she whispers and say don’t worry…….
I hate her for that, don’t worry, I hated her for saying that…
Our love was for life and not for sex, it was sensual.
Now I am here alone and I cant find her, did she stay in another life or is she here
I cant find her…
Is she back as a man or a women
I need you! For us to complete why were are here.
Just try and find me, im trying to find you.
Darling we write and we travel they are one in the same. please find me!

< elects not to open door by hand
looks pretty stupid too
even an grandma can do it
calling all grandma's
technology has gone to far
really really to far now
one does not need to be an rocket scientist
nor an magician
it's easy as one two three
tip your hats
look both ways
launch arms outward
and pull or push that's it

A LITTLE LOVE SONG OF LITTLE THINGS.
There is nothing to say
no complaints no gratitude,
Your aptitude is right but
its hindering your attitude!
A glass was my page-
you were my water I thought,
Your love was a sorrowful battle
with tears I fought!!
Every drop of tear
that wet my eyes,
I hid with smiles
beneath my cries!
You were the amazing rolling
waves of the sea that help to sail,
I forgot the same waves turn
monstrous and the sailors do fail!!
There was a time when
you had nothing beside you,
A bucket of tears and
the company of devils in your crew,
There were tears in your eyes
and a passion of compassion,
The tears turned into laughter
and so changed your fashion!!
Let me recall today although
what is done for others must be forgotten,
When you were wet I soaked
your tears and did swell like the cotton,
When the burden of sorrow
overlapped your heart-I was the button,
But when prosperity knocks
men lock their rooms and draw the curtain!!
Who remembers the world beyond the window,
Who cares for the candles when the bulbs glow,
Who remembers the teardrops when they laugh,
Who cares for a muffler when they have the scarf??
Oh girl you forgot your tears
were not yours they were our,
Oh girl you forgot you were
not my weakness you’re my power,
Oh girl you forgot the drops of rain
is purer than the shower,
Oh girl you forgot a garden
is not garden without the flower!!
Just look outside your window
the love bees are sad to see us part,
The bulbs may glow your room
but the candle brightens your heart,
The laughter echoes in the air
but the teardrops paint your memory,
The scarf may be expensive
but the old muffler will serve you for free!!
Those drops of tears that’ve
evaporated are calling us back again,
The sky is gradually darkening
and reuniting the drops of rain,
The Garden of Eden is scentless
and the flowers are numb to bloom,
And the curtain is explosive
to open and brighten our room!!
I feel a strong sensation
in me to reunite,
And relive the days
that’ve gone out of sight,
But the garden will not rejoice
unless the bees hum and the flowers bloom,
And the flowers will bloom only
if you hold my hand and walk out of your room!!
Once we are together we’ll go
back into our lovely loving phase,
And once the grasses grow-
the cows will certainly come to graze,
And once the flowers bloom
there will soon be humming of the bees,
And again there will be joy in little things-
in candles, mufflers and trees!!

C ontentment on hot summer days is to lay me down gently
upon the glossy, cool, red ceramics tiles, that refresh and tantalize bare skin
H alf naked, brown and melting, like chocolate on your tongue
I ndifferent to peering eyes of strangers wandering about
L eaving inquisitives to brainstorm about “Are they, or not”; secret laughs shared
we live only in our daydreams of love’s passionate connection
L oving summer nights rendezvous beneath sister moon and her entourage of
millions of twinklin stars
I gniting latent fires that still smolder amidst the ash, barely breathing
N ights of in ocean side palaces of sky and sand; enjoying soft warm breezes that
cool passion's thirst, as the sound of a lonely sax wafts through the palms,
has us drifting off to the soothing lullaby of rolling, crashing waves.

IM SORRY I HAVE TO LEAVE BUT I'LL TRY TO COME BACK
I REMEMBER HOW YOU USED TO TOUCH ME
AND WHEN WE FIRST MET YOU ALWAYS SAID HEY YOU
IT'S YOUR SILENCE THAT TEASE ME
i TRY TO LISTEN OUT FOR YOUR WHISPERS
MY TEARS HAVE GONE
I WANT YOU TO BE HERE WITH ME TO STAY
IM SORRY IM SELFISH BUT I CANT BE ALONE
ALL I KNOW IS THAT YOUR NOT HERE TO SAY TO ME
I LOVE YOU
TIME IS NOT TIMED
IM TIRED OF WAITING
YOU HAVE TO COME BACK
I MISS YOU
I NEED YOU
I WANT YOU
ONE DAY YOU WILL BE MINE
I FEEL SO ALONE WHEN I KNOW I HAVE YOU.
