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

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

P aranoia permeates, etching itself into your fractured face,
A cacophony of constant pressure; life remains a stressful race,
N othing to hope for, no positives like promotion in the workplace,
I nability to love, relationships lift anchor and set sail without chase,
C hildren crushing dreams under mortgages; age grows with disgrace
L uscious lips that slightly part reveal to my delight
O ne gorgeous smile meant just for me and teeth that sparkle white.
S heepishly I drop my eyes, afraid that he might guess
T he sudden urge that sweeps my soul to feel his sweet caress.
I nfatuation some might say! But I can only sigh. . .
N ever have I felt this way for any other guy.
L ong-lashed luminescent eyes are those of hazel hue
O bserving me! What soulful eyes I’m looking back into!
V anquished by his gaze am I. My forecast may sound grim. . .
E vermore I’m lost because my heart is lost to him!
For Black-eyed Susan's LOST Acrostic Poetry Contest
Loneliness is a fear that sometimes cease life
Cutting through my heart carving its way like a knife
Holding me at a place where I feel for someone I need
To make me feel appreciated, loved and wanted indeed
You asked what is in my heart I once held you second to none
But now here is the truth of my now Dear John
Dear John you made feel like you will always be there
You told me you there was no one else who can care
You claimed to love me and promised me your all
But you busy pleasuring life every-time I call
How could you have held me in your heart when you had none
I gave you my all, blindly believed you now its all gone
You took everything from me you left me with nothing
You said I was yours and so I kept giving
All I have lost and you are no where to be found
Remember you stepped on me when I was on the ground
After that You said love was just a word only fools believed in
You laughed at me when you saw me crippled and bleeding
You said I will never be loved you told me to just hate
I had nothing else but those words so to me they were great
John I have a confession that will change things forever
There was more than you to life but did I see it? Never
I only knew this after you left there was a stranger
He gave me all you took and in my life he became the arranger
John you have nothing here any more
So I give you up and close that door
You will never come back because there is no cause
He told me the truth and loved even my flaws
Something you could have never done
John you lost me now be gone
When I met Him and he was my heart's desire
John for the first time in my life I saw you were a liar
Now who would of thought the thoughts that would truly get the mind lost in fragile thought?
So much on our known life,
about unknown death when we laugh at others but at ourselves we really cry,
in our very own hidden truth lies,
amongst our own poeple who we defy,
until we fight,
for wrongs for personal rights,
**** the darkness is what make us appreciate the light,
I dont talk the talk nor do I walk the walk because I walk my talk while I swagger and swerve im my talks through these walks,
Life can get so messy with death that its time for those of us here to grab the broom so God can mop,
I live life to the fullest with what little I have because I dont have a lot,
I live life shitty sometimes like almost everyone else like it or not,
Im not special Im so unique Im individual with word talent I know I got,
I know what I dont have so its important more knowledge among me is sought,
I can be wrong half the time but can still make it 100% right I was self-taught among a young soul that seems to be bought,
I got a bad limp but dont get me wrong I can still gallup through darkness while I jog lost in the early morning fog waiting to be patiently found in the midnight lounge where I trot,
Truly lost so easily in profound hard thoughts litterally running from the cops waiting to duck and dodge from open gunshots,
Bodies and shells drop where caskets are made among a dying crop,
I can still make a splatter where there was just but a tiny dot,
I used to have merely nothing now atleast I can truly say I have a safe spot,
I was found looking for truth in lies lost in thought....
L ow clouds droop as she sits on rumpled gown
O aths of pale secrets falling through ravaged sleeves
S omber cheeks line a hollowed tract, cast down
T iredness all around; steep as barb- wired leaves.
T ainted droplet hides on eyelid’s corner
E ncasing her passages streaked with pain,
A s black stars perch on withered flowers
R eflecting shadows ruptured, glimpses wane.
S ilently her thoughts prick sparse winds, to blow
O pening dam of jarred beats from love’s past haze;
B eyond snuffed wails, lost tear plunges full flow
S ullen as thorns, she weeps in requiem sways.

"A Lost Baby Boy"
A ngels stroke soft golden tresses
L onely baby floating on gossamer dresses
O pulent candy clouds embrace tiny frame
S nuggle sad heart while singing his name
T ossed into a new realm of strangers
B rave little soul projects love among dangers
A live in spirit world missing family
B ottle in hand to land of milk and honey
Y earning for kisses from Mommy's sweet lips
B asking in moonlight and silver star drips
O ver the rainbow; across the blue seas
Y esterday breathing in fond memories.
Most of the time, I ‘m coward,
You may ask my mom or my dad.
Let God guides you and in Him, put your trust,
Over all your troubles and doubts.
Sing praises to Him to pacify yourself and relax,
Those are all things they give me as pieces of advice.
For He is always there and He never forsake,
Everyday be strong and hold on to your faith;
And they added: be a good person always,
Rest assured that He will take all your fears away.
