The Lovers Dance

It was their night they shone bright as they danced their sweet dance
Two lovers embraced in their world of romance.

They laughed and they cried as their eyes locked in stare
It was their world for this moment as if no one was there.

And their steps they so flawlessly glided in tune,
To a melody that touched everyone in that room.

Their passion brought envy to onlookers there,
Who secretly questioned their own love affair.

But as the night closed and came to an end
The lovers were blind to what lie round the bend.

The house and the cars and the jobs that went bad
The kids drove them crazy and their savings were drab.

So they fought to hold on to the things in their life,
That caused them so much of their pain and their strife.

They fought with each other like enemies do,
And dismissed in their life everything that was true.

So when sickness and hardships and troubles occurred,
Their vows to commit seemed truly absurd.

Their home and their kids would now take a backseat,
For their moral obligation they chose not to meet.

So I Ask …
What happened to that dance they danced so well?
With passion and truth everyone could tell.

What happened to their dance where they held so tight?
What happened to the wonder of their glorious night?

What happened to the words that charmed their ears?
With a passionate rhythm that brought them to tears.

What happened to those vows that poured from their heart?
The “I love you forever and till death do us part”.

For these aren’t just words we borrow for the day,
From another who tells us this is what we must say.

We say them cause it’s what we feel true in our heart,
It’s a God given blessing we commit from the start.

But these words are now lost as they fall on deaf ears,
Since the pain and the struggles they’ve created these years.

So the lesson here learned dear people of odd,
Is that love is so fragile but made strong with our God.

So stop fighting for power and money or need,
For all of this nonsense is only our greed.

Keep God in your life and he’ll walk you through,
When heartache and pain and losses ensue.

For why commit vows in the eyes of our God,
And not call on him when life gets too hard?

For the truth of our vows we are all meant to see,
is that marriage is not, made of two, but of three

If reading these words ring some truth in your heart,
Decide that today you will make a new start.

Go hug your spouse and say something kind
Don’t let the small stuff cloud up your mind.

We’re all just lost souls who are trying to cope
If  not there for each other then where is the hope?

You see, the anger, the fight
that in us abide, Is only the insecure child inside.

So rise up above all this fear and this pain,
And see all the beauty that there is to gain.

By trusting in God and his will for you
Together forever he’ll see you both through.

For life is too short for our miserly ways
cheap on our love hence dreading our days.

He made us to love in all that we do
To wake up each morning and start us a new.

So pray for your spouse, ask God to be kind
To the person you prayed in the beginning to find.

They’re still the same person you loved from the start
But life and it’s troubles have hardened their heart.

You vowed that you’d love them in sickness and health
Now is your chance to show God what you felt.

So rise up my friend, don’t say that you’re through
For what if your loving God gave up on you?

I had a love, but it flew like a

I had a voice that spoke with

Now it's forming artery clutter.

I ballooned lungs, possessing

but your absence left a

I had wide eyes endulged with

heart can see.    

I had a heart that beat like a

Now it's tasted onion, hard to

I had a belly that held

hidden lies.

I had tickled ears filled with 
your melody.
They pranced like deer, into a tree.

I had pennies wasted on vain 
Now they're poisoning the 
I had a nose filled with rose's 
but it blew with the breeze, a 
memory spent.

I had smooth arms secure in 
your care.
Now they're free, yet lonely, 

I had soft hands, interlocked 
with yours.
Now they hold open their own 

I had silken legs you loved to 
I keep them neatly under my 

I had eyebrows raised with 
Now they're abased, full of 

I had a smile, like a child's for 
I still wear one, but it's a fake.

I had instincts, but I let them 
like a rambling tongue, for 
ego's show.    

I had a feeling this would end,
but remained devoted like an 
owing friend.

I had deep wounds, dripping 
with blood.
The stains are hidden under the 

I had regrets of the worst kind,
but I've released them, lost in 

I had a self, differently sorted,
vibrantly alive, now aborted.

Ode to my Chiro

My body’s friend, the Chiropractor
gives me exactly what I’m after.
A reduction of serious pain 
in my skeletal frame is my aim.
To be enabled to be able
keeps me mentally stable.
For years in my pain, Doctors said “no don’t go,
those Chiropractors are your foe!”
So doctors fed me pain pills and charged me too much,
talked of expensive therapy, operations and such.
Possible fusing could be motion  losing.
The therapy never did the trick,
And the pills just made me sick.
So I tried to be believing and nice,
but went against the Doc’s advice
because I could barely walk
and had to work, 
my body in shock.
Saw that Chiropractor, took his advice
and at a very reasonable price.
That was my first whose name was Dr B. 
He helped me immensely.
The pain left quickly. 
I was no longer sickly.
My current Chiropractor uses an activator,
He’s a dedicated rejuvenator.
A friend recommended him twelve years ago,
For needed maintenance, I still go.
So many times to my elation,
he’s saved me an operation,
because of the sensible characteristic,
That his Chiropractics are holistic.
Doctors have their place and if it needs be so,
My chiropractor will tell me to go.
So Doctors, curb your pride and make the confession,
CHIROPRACTICS  is a Most Noble Profession !

( A heart felt thanks to my Chiropractors, Dr B. in Vt. 
   and  Dr. R. S. here in Florida. God bless you both. )

Spirit of Chantel Noel

The nervous system originates in the brain.
Nerves send and receive signals to feel pleasure, fear or pain.

A baby’s diaper rash causes crying, pain and suffering,
Her torment needs attention , care and buffering,

She is so sensitive to pain, as were you and I ,
The slightest discomfort caused us to cry.

But because this is pain we can not now recall,
It does not mean we didn’t experience it all,

The nervous system is developed in Mom’s womb long before birth,
Of course, most people know this fact, for what it’s worth,

Why else does the babe instinctively move away,
When the medical probe is maneuvered her way?

She does not know the terms “women’s rights“, “choice” and “abortion”,
As she is killed, screaming in a fear and pain filled contortion,

But that baby’s pain simply doesn’t matter in this world of darkened lights,
She missed the boat when the flag unfurled for choice and women’s rights.

Dear child, you are just not old enough to be without pain and fear,
You see, we have too many excuses times one million a year.
May God buffer your pain my little friends when your shortened time is through,
And forgive your Moms and Dads for we may or may not know what we do.

And  ask God to have mercy on us self blinded pretend Christians too,
As we vote for politicians who promote killing your siblings and you.

God bless you Chantel.

     This  is a repost of the poem written 5/01/2010 in answer to a charge that babies don't feel pain anyway so it's okay to abort them.
 The news today 4/17/2012 (AP news) reports that the fetal pain abortion law which recently came about in three states because of the scientific proof that unborn babies do feel pain is now under attack because people want to kill the little ones anyway in spite of their proven torture.
     Perhaps some day our society will become civilized and history will reveal these acts for the barbarianism that it indeed is. Until then let's keep praying for our youngest most vulnerable minority friends.

Jenny Butler

Hour upon unending hour, day upon unending day,
quietly, in her prison, our dear Jennie Butler lay.

No curses did she utter, never once did she complain,
though hands and feet were gnarled, swollen, and burning with pain.

Instead, she smiled, told us jokes, those she often would repeat,
and sing to us the old songs, in tones pleasant and sweet.

Down the hall outside her room, other voices mingled there,
mumbling and babbling or calling out in despair.

No one came to visit her, no one that we could recall,
though she waited patiently, no one ever came at all.

From a beam he dangled as the rope choked out his breath
So very soon to end his life as he does the dance of death.
     The grandma sees her grandson and has to take him down
     She lays him on the carpet that is colored brown.

High up on a structure eyes are starring down
Will blackout over come him before he hits the ground;
  The morbid and the curious have finally gone away
  There’s only those who clean the mess, it's just another day.

Dinner on the table with plate and fork and knife
The only thing that's swallowed is a pill to end her life.
  Who said that it is painless have they looked around the room
  The pain does carry on and on far beyond the doom.

With a knife the cut was made now blood spills on the floor
Soon the shadows of the dark will come in through the door.
    Who said there are no victims; reactions carry on;
    This tragedy repeats it’s self; through days that take too long 
With rocks put in her pockets in water not so high
She sucks the water to her lungs that's how she chose to die.
    The husband of Virginia Wolf, now he knows too well
    His days are filled with misery and his life's a living hell.

Desperate to escape he points the pistol to his head
The triggers pulled, a roar goes off; and just like that he's dead.
      When she opened up the door she saw the pieces of his brain
      The blood in puddles on the floor; was like water from the drain.

Blood is on her shirt; where she held him for too long
But it's simply far too late the life in him is gone.
    Who says that it is painless have they looked around the room
     I know the pain does carry on and on far beyond the doom.

Another Day.....

Why is everyone so surprised,
To learn of the pain I have disguised?

They say that they had not a clue.
They always say"Who knew?"

They had not a single notion,
All the tears shed could fill an ocean.

They all want me to put my heart on my sleeve.
Why so again everyone can just leave?

They say my soul I should bare,
Yet they as well never share.

I am just going to be by myself.
My heart will be placed upon a shelf.

I am hurting way too much
No longer want to feel or touch.

I have made my many mistakes.
This is my life, that is the breaks.

I have many sins and many regrets,
Never shall I allow myself to forget.

All my pain and all my endless sorrow 
Shall raise its head again on the morrow.

It is mine and mine alone.
I should not grumble or even moan.

One day the sun will surely shine,
And I will no  longer whine.

Til then I will just silently scream
And pray this is nothing but a dream.

The Dirge of the Rain

"I like it when it rains hard. 
It sounds like white noise everywhere, 
which is like silence but not empty."
-Mark Haddon

And so it pours again
Tonight. Not champagne—
Just a cup of hot coffee
To drown what we used to be.
To the melody of white I weep,
Lying here so close to sleep;
With wet wings that can't fly,
Soaked clothes that won’t dry;
Rain that won’t cease:
Pain that won’t ease.

My Perfect 10

If I picked my Valentine
she'd be a perfect 10.
She'd have blonde hair with highlites
and answer where and when.

She'd be a little shorter,
yet tall enough to kiss.
Her reach a little longer
to torture us in bliss.

Her shape would be the bomb.
As sexy as they come.
With hair up for the moment
I'd meet her at the prom.

She'd talk a little faster
with words I'd say are smart.
Yet keep me to attention
in hugs up to my heart.

A smile just like a lion.
Her face a source of pride.
One to show my mother.
And then to make my bride.

My Valentine was perfect
as I lost her way back then.
How was I to know that she
would find her perfect 10.

Skittles and a soda
against a gun in its holster?

One day that scream
will be known as a teen
not a heinous lying Fein

What a sinister ploy and twist
with a loaded gun and no fist?

Had everyone sitting and waiting
doomed by a verdict just delaying

Was this just an optical illusion
or, a devious planned conclusion?

Now, this generation too afraid
wearing hoodies will get you dead

But, the Klan was still glad
hoodies they've always had

A verdict they too saw,
ushering in martial law

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

This Is The Life These Eyes Have Seen

Always swimming against the current, traveling a path that wasn't clean
A Pandora's Box of past experiences...This Is The Life These Eyes Have Seen
I remember when in grade school/sad at home/and fewer friends
In the throes of a shattered childhood...into the abyss this youth descends
Reading, Writing, and some Arithmetic, it was The Three R'S which kept me sane
Yet, in my psyche a storm was raging; nimbostratus and soaking rain...
By junior high much more than wretched/abuse endured would set the tone
Dark Midtown blocks, a hustler's playground...those streets of pain I walked alone
Things were done, it's called survival, deeds mostly wrong but, sometimes right
Only God above could Love me, a desperate child who sought The Light
I knew boys who sold their "manhood", a tragic fate, they sold their soul
Forty Second the eighties quicksand, and many kids were swallowed whole
Ingest these words of tribulation/I freebased when just sixteen
By nineteen on crack and fiending...This Is The Life These Eyes Have Seen
Chasing the cloud, yes, on a mission, losing sleep to find the drugs
Looking for hits, but, finding nothing/a thousand specks on darkened rugs
Then came prison/another nightmare/just twenty six/a second bid
Introspection/ineffable loneliness to pay for all the things I did
Striving hard to avoid all conflict, encountering things that made men fear
I went so deep within my spirit; no one could ever hurt me there
Adult years of daily suffering/teenage times that weren't serene
Still, several Blessings amongst the hardships....This Is The Life These Eyes Have Seen

The sable noon’s hues part the glow
When your form coils into a shadow
Impaired by whiffs in a forest 
As twisted leaf gnarls on its breasts

Layered, bleak gaze avoid our plight
Beneath old trees, I find no delight
From summer’s heat reeking of woes;
Lamenting vows that decompose.

 Branches thirst for a glistened sun 
Mirroring frail ardor, undone 
While the ravage of time’s dismay
Ensnares lost destiny, to slay!

Come darkness of noontime’s remark 
The lonely tree bows from its arc
In solemn farewell of our love,
Your oath black... flies like soot above.

Take a Toke

Light up a joint, lets give it a whirl,
the illness you have is making you hurl.

The pain is so bad you want to cry,
take a couple of tokes and you'll be high.

The pain will dim as you stumble down the block,
time seems to be dragging, but not the clock.

Don't mind if you catch yourself mumbling,
run to the refrigerator, your stomach is grumbling.

A foot long sub and a bag of potato chips,
before you know it, pants get stuck on hips.

Forget the urge of wanting to shop,
you may get pulled over by a cop.

Insurance will not pay, it will cost you money,
that's all good, because you'll think it's funny.

Soon your head will feel like you're drinking booze.
Time to lay down for a nice little snooze.

Time to wake up and break out, the chronic weed.
If you want this "medicine" go plant a seed.

It may not be legal but a doctor has the say,
of what he wants to give you to take pain away.

It's up to an individual how to manage their pain,
I would rather not kill, the cells in my brain.

Given It All

The match is approaching for time has now passed;
He eats a quick meal – knowing it to be last.

The field it is awaiting within thick fog and lights –
He knows that tonight is sure to be a fight.

He gets on a knee and says a quick prayer;
He does it so swiftly – this occasion not rare.

The field now approaches, ominous yet serene –
He sees his team waiting, their strength to be seen.

The ball is kicked and soars like a hawk;
And bodies collide with a thud and a shock.

A fight it turns out – their opponent of great size,
But his team presses forward with a fearless disguise.

Hard hits are given and he takes a few;
But he presses on, for his brothers do to.

Win or loss, fallen or tall,
He walks off the field having given it all.

A Dark Fantasy

I’m on a planet with a golden kiss
It shimmers with glory, such bliss!

As I zoom in, it turns into a dark land
Peep in, I’m afraid, I cannot stand!

In darkness, I see a bright glowing tower
Inside, a plethora of so called ‘man’ power

Zoom in; I see ‘beast’ kind disguised as ‘man’ kind
Alas! Not a single kind beast could I find

I hear roars of uncivilized beings
And moans of so-called weaklings

I see a trail of emotional turmoil
Those 7 deadly sins wrapped in a dazzling foil

Gifted to humanity, his power, his grey matter
It separates humans from animals and allows us to shatter

The once created planet with a golden kiss
Will it ever show the signs of holy bliss?

The Second Man

Am I doomed to live a tale I cannot simply complete?
Shall I always remember her with every knocking beat?

I loved a girl who was never supposed to be mine, 
I drew her sky with lilies and her ground with pine; 

Saw new horizons from the beam of her blue eyes, 
Never knew these radiant cyans could be made of lies;

They warned me not to dream far with a too-closed lid,
Vanity told me it is envy and my vision became turbid! 

First month was a walk in Eden with roses flying in between, 
Second month declared the birth of a love yet not foreseen; 

The third summoned all jealous gazes and murmurs in a chest, 
In the fourth she disappeared and no it is not some silly jest! 

I wandered far and long trying to figure out as much as I can,
Why the only girl I loved would run away with another man?

Does love deceive humans when it manipulates and controls them?
How easy for us to blindly fall into a cleverly-webbed state of rem!

A year passed me by with all of its months and weeks and days, 
I aged in that empty year but had to bitterly live that phase;

Just then I saw her striding along the road, a vision to be seen,
The girl, who haunts me still, was carrying a baby so serene!!

My heart grew colder as I greeted her with the words I barely mustered, 
The scene deadened me since then and left me again heart-flustered!

Shattered Pieces

Of mere brittle glass, made is my fragile heart A Diamond needle to carve it part by part These tender tissues, sharp shrapnels pierce More than the bullets, your words it fears! Each shard shot is embedded so deep Pangs of pain making the flesh creep, On the seeping wounds, a sorrowful mind feeds Not a drop of blood flows when the soul bleeds. Devoid of sunshine, when the darkness is rampant Dreams desert as the teary eyes now vacant, Good only as long as the fake could last Rainbows and romance, now things of the past! Lessons learnt at life's very own cost Experience gained but innocence lost, A deep sigh of dismay from the innermost recesses As the delicate heart breaks into a million pieces. 7th Mar 2013

Memories Beyond the Door

I keep you—you and all things you—behind this wooden locked door.
But still, your shadow: through the gap below, escapes; painted all over the floor.

That door stares and stares at me for days, weeks, months, years in vain;
For I truly dare not even touch that gilded, rust-eaten key again.

From there, I hear your screams as if you were declaring the next World War,
And truth be told—for no lies would suffice, it scares me to my deepest core.

From the gap below I see flickering lights, hear metallic sounds of rustling chains;
I see seeping from below unrestrained laughter, like puddles formed when it rains.

And often too, I find blood pooling underneath: rose syrup generously poured.
(Though I always stand there and stare—I don’t know what I’m waiting for.)

After a while, I noticed a curious thing: my hand, on the wood, it has left a stain;
Obscure, it was nonetheless there. I still see it with bare eyes, slightly strained.

Hey, you know, it has been coming to me lately; the monster that stomps and roars.
Trembling at first, I will be alright, for I remember: “Lock the door and count to four!”

And there it comes for its daily visit and find me it will. But fear not, dear; for I'd fain
Suffer this than to open the door and let you, too, be devoured again by Pain.

Give me a pill

Give me a pill that will wipe away this pain
That’s driving me completely insane
A pill that will mend my broken heart
Before I entirely rip apart
A pill that will save me from my death
From my empty soul and decreasing breath
A pill that can keep me happy and alive
I guess you may call it the pill of life
As long as it cures my insecurities
My dreadful pain that are like injuries
Caused by buses running over me
But it’s just my foes not wanting me to be free
Someone give a pill to wipe this pain away
And maybe I’ll finally have a brighter day

New York City - Vicious Cycle

Pushed to the edge by reality, yes, these verses will stifle.

A revolving door always present; New York City....Vicious Cycle.

This is a poem about the hardships, and monotony of this age

The world unchanging in its essence....many problems to assuage.

Why is our purlieu in such predicaments, the morass so intense?

It seems the fire has been extinguished; in other words we've acquiesced.

Hallways, alleys, subway stations/where the weak and troubled roam.

Considered dross by our society, that's why the streets became their home.

Our youth in dire straits, how can they be redeemed?

High school dropouts, teenage suicide, and for meth my brothers fiend.

Homeless people are anathema; we seldom love the poor…

New York City...Vicious Cycle....where daily living is abhorred.

A nimbus cloud, can't see the acme/ Where Then Can Love Be Found?

The cacophony breaks the silence; the voice of weeping does resound.

Welfare parents in a quandary, just barely scraping by.

Elderly people doing no better...though receiving S.S.I.

New York City....Vicious Cycle, spreading like a deadly cancer.

Minority children disenfranchised; drug dealing is their answer.

Boys and girls, young and pretty/ jailbait, nowhere to run.

A perfect target for a pedophile; their tender lives have just begun.

Dark specters in every borough; people lost and living trifle.

Eight million stories, naked truth...New York City...Vicious Cycle.

The Crush

The roses have wilted,
the violets have died,
but you'll never know
the tears that I cried.
You'll never know the pain that I knew.
You'll never know how much I loved you.

It attacked my life like a swarm of predatory wasps
Anger, regret, pain, confusion, to ruin me at all costs
unprovoked, vicious stings to my soul, many a tear
made me hollow inside, without joy, living in fear

Unable to run or hide for their venom is already within
To snipe at my belief, questions to drive reflection of sin
Should I seek reasons, or find solace needed in a friend
My friends helped win battles, and the war inside did end

Ode To Billy

Young Billy was a soldier in the War Between the States; 
And scars of war made Billy feel a victim of the fates. 
He fought for Mr. Lincoln and the preservation creed 
Yet saw too many dying and he saw too many bleed. 

Now Billy knew the dreams of war so vivid every night, 
Were dreams of almost everyone who'd caught that bloody fight. 
The war he fought sought righteousness which he believed was true 
But never understood how North and South could split in two. 

His parents died of fever while he fought in Tennessee, 
A fact he didn't know until the North claimed victory. 
His papa, wise and sullen like the Irish Sea he knew, 
Had come to this America with dreams to start anew. 

Young Billy hoped his mama knew he'd made it through the war 
For she had shed no salted tears when he marched off before - 
But mothers bury very deep such pain within their soul 
So only God could touch her there and try to make her whole. 

Now both were gone along with wisdoms they could gently share 
To help him lift conflicted pain no man should have to bear. 
He prayed that Father Dave back home in Dublin had been right - 
A man can speak with loved ones in the starlight of the night. 

The things of life one covets can be lost to history, 
Including soldiers buried by the war's ferocity. 
He cried out loud in anger at the God he once adored: 
"Why did You leave me all alone my precious, precious Lord? 

What grave offense did I commence before Your loving eyes?" 
Though God was silent in repose great clouds then cleared the skies 
And Billy's father softly spoke and made the two as one 
With words of wisdom's calming balm to heal his broken son. 

"The wisdom of this world are pearls wrapped snug in crystal rain 
Proclaiming life will never end but just begin again."

The Feeling

From deep within a silence grows
Vastly spreading, yet no one knows
No one knows of what's to come
The Feeling is sudden, then it's done.
Often with pain, fits of sorrow
The Feeling leaves nothing, not even a morrow
With much haste, take one last breath
We all succumb to The Feeling of Death.

Carry Me

Fog creeps about and it is all that I can see
Your words they comfort and set my spirit free
I can’t pierce through the showers
Or unpredictable strong towers
But your love has no restrictions
Larger than all these afflictions.

Secluded for a season
My soul cries out
Lift me up softly from all this doubt
Storms of great refreshing are passing through this land
You promised to carry me in Your mighty hand.

Mist above a lake… the product of past mistakes
Vapors in the haze, my life now one big maze
The murkiness in the silence, I yearn to be relieved
The nothingness overwhelms me like midnight's vile thieves.

Secluded for a season
My soul cries out
Lift me up softly from all this doubt
Storms of great refreshing pass through this land
You promised to carry me in Your mighty hand
You promised to carry me in Your mighty hand.

She is so sensitive to pain, as were you and I ,
The slightest discomfort caused us to cry.

But because this is pain we can not now recall,
It does not mean we didn’t experience it all,

The nervous system is developed in Mom’s womb long before birth,
Of course, most people know this fact, for what it’s worth,

Why else does the babe instinctively move away,
When the medical probe is maneuvered her way?

She does not know the terms “women’s rights“, “choice” and “abortion”,
As she is killed, screaming in a fear and pain filled contortion,

But that baby’s pain simply doesn’t matter in this world of darkened lights,
She missed the boat when the flag unfurled for choice and women’s rights.

Dear child, you are just not old enough to be without pain and fear,
You see, we have too many excuses times one million a year.
May God buffer your pain my little friends when your shortened time is through,
And forgive your Moms and Dads for we may or may not know what we do.

And  ask God to have mercy on us self blinded pretend Christians too,
As we vote for politicians who promote killing your siblings and you.

Dedicated to Chantel

     This  is a repost of the poem written 5/01/2010 in answer to a charge that babies don't feel pain anyway so it's okay to abort them.
 The news today 4/17/2012 (AP news) reports that the fetal pain abortion law which recently came about in three states because of the scientific proof that unborn babies do feel pain is now under attack because people want to kill the little ones anyway in spite of their proven torture.
     Perhaps some day our society will become civilized and history will reveal these acts for the barbarianism that it indeed is. Until then let's keep praying for our youngest most vulnerable minority friends.
-Robert A. Dufresne

(Rhyming Couplets) The book of our life's much unknown,which means, is not ever seen or read. Yet man thinks that they know it all, but it's all in their head Life is filled with so much sorrow, pain and stress each day Partly to blame is sin and all the evil that men do. Men in their heart the love of God for other things keep replacing And so the love in their hearts for their fellowman grows cold,uncaring and is dying. Rich, poor, famous or unheard of, beautiful, ugly, short or tall What does it matter? We're all sinners,saved only by grace,and that's all If all men were to change their wicked ways today and turn around In this world kindness and love in the name of God would be more found But sin, grief,suffering and death, are only man's fate to grasp for now Till Jesus returns or they listen His gentle call and one day to Heaven they go.

Le Vacance Pretentieuse: Darts

Drops of sweat slip from my furrowed brow
Eyes squint, select a number and let fly now

Miss again, a millimetre is a mile once more
Aimed for triple twenty, only got double four

The walk of shame, my oh so familiar friend
Silence broken, on alcohol I forever depend

The steel point of eyes bore into my neck
My opponent leaves me a juddering wreck

I lose the match; the wife won’t give me a kiss 
I wish I could have been anything else than this...

Me n You

You said you love me,
No one above me.
But lately you choose the game.
I thought you meant what you said, what a shame.
Though it hurts i stay by your side.
Just know your walking a thin line.
One day i'll have you back.
I'll always be here,
Whether were in a hoopdy or a cadillac.
I'm scared for you,
Dont know what i would do if i lost you-no clue.
And i'm not talking about you leaving,
'cause our love has too much meaning.
I'm talking about the next guy pulling a heat.
Thats what i mean when i say i dont want you to leave.
I miss you baby,
Im here to stay
I want to be your one and only lady
I promise its gunna be me and you
Until its through.
You got my heart
Till death due us part.

The Deadly Dart

Wherever I go through out my whole life,
I end up struggling with lots of strife.
Thinking that my life is a total waste,
Wanting it to be over in a haste.

I can feel the pain inside my own heart,
Like someone through at my a deadly dart.
The wound is easing deeper and deeper,
Will the pain ever stop getting bigger?

Feeling emo is never a good thing,
Cutting your arm makes a really bad sting.
Blood is dripping from my arms and my heart,
Failing to dodge the largest deadly dart.

Drowning in all the lies and self pity,
I live each day but always feel sh*tty.
I have lots of thoughts about suicide,
But then I think about those who have died.

Those who have died not just from suicide,
But also those who are really nice guys.
...This "poem" was actually suppose to be a couplet (on any thing you want) for my english 
class but i made this kind bcuz i was feeling emo that day...and also after i was done i read it 
over and it almost sound like a rap song which, i guess, is kinda funny and cool.........

Sorrow fastens upon those who try
Happiness evades all those who cry

The frailties on which life is weakly built
Are felt in the pain of those in conflict

Like a lightning strike it hits us hard
On the hearts our emotions be charred

Nothing stings as of the lovers quarrel
It bites to make your nerves do all but disable

You feel the pain the deep ocean yearning
After a lifetime you continue learning

That trust is tender and scarcely earned
The numbers are few who sorrows can turn.

Levels of Pain

Levels of pain 

Pain at a level of one
It’s mild and almost none

Some pain levels can match
Like a splinter and a scratch

A fall or a broken bone
Can make a person yell or moan 

If you gain some weight
That can be a painful state

Even at the level of a ten
Pain differs between women and men

The death of a love has tears
That’s the worst and can last many years

There was a girl that no-one knew her name
Everybody took for a silly little game

Every day she was crying
Every day she was lying

Until one day, she found a place to hide
And then she tried to commit suicide

But she was saved by someone very nice
But then tried to do it twice

But the second time she was afraid to do it again
So she started to get rid of her hate and pain

After a few days, she was strong and happy
That girl was I and my name is Julie

Now she doesn’t forget her powerful beauty                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Lives every day knowing that she’s lovely

Not worrying about what people say                                                                                                                   For great things were made from muddiest clay

Holds in her heart her power which is love                                                                                                         For she was made from the Creator above

She doesn’t try to be somebody that you’re not                                                                                                                  She learned to be content and appreciate what you’ve got

She doesn’t forget whom she’s meant to be                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Never giving up she stays as bold as the sea

In the shade - contest

There is a place deep inside
Where pain and suffering reside

Visions live happily within
Seeking a life without pain and sin

Musical sounds help salve his pain
Till the magical day he is well again

Unfortunately he has to rest in bed
To help cure the sickness in his head

Until that day his tolerance fades
Sunny smiles are left in the shade.

Small Seed

One and only, great sweet dream
Lullaby, my sun beam
Moonlight’s music, sky’s first kiss
Stars and magic, my one bliss
You’re just a little seed; you’ll grow into your skin
And be filled with love from both hearts within
You’re just a tiny seed deep within the soil
I only hope that you didn’t spoil
I dreamt that you grew as tall as a tree
I dreamt that you were always there with me
But dreams don’t always become true
And I have never got to be with you
You’re just a seed; you’ll grow up very strong
I only wish that I wasn’t wrong
You’re just a small lovely seed 
In four months you started to bleed
My one and only, hold me very tight
I only wish that everything was right
Lovely infant, dear young dream
Golden daylight, my sun beam
You are the reason that I will always cry
Why did you ever have to say goodbye?

Dying more than ever before
Every time I miss you more
A first child that wasn’t born
Dead, now all I do I mourn

Baby only four months old
A treasure I never got to hold
Big hole in my heart tonight
Yelling “Why didn’t you hold me tight?”

The Forgotten Valentine

I’m the girl that’s sad and lonely
The fool that thought she was you only
I’m the rose left in the dust
You have withered all my trust
Love blinded me so I couldn’t see
You were never the one for me
I’m the lost thing in the snow
I’m the girl that you used to know
With the love that isn’t true
Hoping I’ll find someone better than you
The scar that lasts eternally
Is the pain that you gave to me
Maybe I should remind you of the times we had
The times that you used to make me glad
Before I no longer meant anything to you
Do you see what you have put me through?
Is there another that stole your heart?
Do you mean to break me apart?
Do you know what day this is?
It’s also the day of our first kiss
I remember you said that you’ll love me forever
But why are we not together?
I love you boy, do you love me?
I guess it’s time I set you free
Were you ever truly mine 
Remember me? The forgotten Valentine

Night Frights

Dish water film screen rolls over the eyes
Holding ones breath til the pain subsides
Sensory processing put to the test. 
Praying for sleep or at least for some rest. 

A sharp pain forged from a fire deep inside
Throbbing and stabbing on nerve ends it rides. 
Feel sick to the stomach, can't catch a breath
Skin feels on fire, yet it's soaked with sweat. 

Hail Mary, our father pray for relief
Wait for the light of the morning to peep. 
Somehow there's hope in the light of the day
Removed from the realm where night terrors play.

Then and now {Double Posting}


I welcome you all to the dance
A place where souls are held in trance
Destiny is our truest fate
Taking your soul will feel great
I was born unto this life
To distribute pain and strife
There is nothing you can do
I shall have this dance with you
As we dance across the floor
I shall show you what destiny is for
You can try with all your might
I will have this dance tonight
As we dance you should know
I will crawl up in your soul
So take my hand and join the dance
I hold your soul in my trance
No need to try and run away
With your soul I shall play
By the time I am through
Nothing that you can do
For I shall leave you like a shell
As I take your soul with my spell
There is nothing like a dark romance
So will you please join the dance?

Beauty can be rated by so many things
Like the noise birds make as they sing
Beauty is a flower growing from a seed
It also is a baby tender with its needs
If a person takes the time to look around
There is so much beauty on this earth to be found
Beauty can be a mountain all covered up with snow
Or it can be firelight with its entrancing glow
One thing in my life I have come to know
No beauty is as beautiful as the beauty of the soul

I posted this this way to show how
much poetry has changed me. I
guess now you understand why
I wanted to bury them old poems.
Sometimes like right now I just
can't help but cry for my pain is
very deep.

Emotions desire to take control,
Deep inside, waiting to unfold.

Love, so gentle, yet so fierce,
Leaves her crushed, and her heart ever-so pierced.
Her innocence once blew like a flower in the breeze, 
But now her soul lies in a ditch, never at ease.

First sight's love had her fooled from the start, 
Living in a dream was unsafe for her heart.

Unbearable pain was his gift goodbye,
Thinking not of the damage, he left his victim to die.

She lye there waiting for her life to be taken, 
Thought she had no one, but she was mistaken.

A glowing pair of eyes were caught in her sight,
She attempted getting up with all of her might.

The man came closer, gave an edge to her world,
Without even knowing, he shed light to the girl.

Took her by the hand, gave her a second shot at love,
His illuminating vibe appeared as if he were sent from above.

The girl gave in to this man's illusion,
Thinking not of the pain that her heart was once bruising.

She looked deep in the midst of his bewildering eyes,
And caught herself breathless with no surprise.

She's caught in the whirlpool of emotions to use,
...once again, the love cycle continues.

my son was born with a disconnected mind
he catches on if you give him time

i love that he carries on a normal life 
i hate that he will never have a wife

he loves animals and building things
i hate to tell him that he can not sing : )

his appetite so big and around the clock
you will find him from time to time with only the one sock

he gets so excited about just the little things
oh what joy he brings

he talks to everyone that passes through
why some people are mean i have no clue

i ask God to please keep him near if i am called home before him
he never liked just being called 'jim'

his sisters and brothers treat him well and give him no slack
...and his love for them does not lack

my dear son mommy loves you so
you are special in my heart i want you to know

and if I could tell the world to stop treating as if you have a disease
this would make mommy so very pleased

Unsung Tears

Ignorant, she walk
As stealth shadows stalk
Pure was her name
Misfortune, her mane

Then out of midnight's light 
Comes the wicked of the night
Her desperate struggles
Are flooded with pain

Lost in night rain
The echoes of disdain
Her innocent fears
And unsung tears
Masked in raindrops

Her womanhood scathed
Glowing dreams quenched
As her body lay drenched
Cold, yet hot 
Till all hope is lost

Passions unwanted
Pleas neglected
Blood sheared
Whereas evil cheered
O poor soul, have mercy I pray

Can't Win For Losing

Can't Win For Losing 

I play it straight,I play it to the fullest,I play it until I fixed all the problems and yet i lose in the end.I didn't lose love I lost myself in a world that can't keep to it self.Isn't life it self a game meant to played until you die? So why have I run out of plans why am I winning but losing at the same time? Maybe there a rule I haven't thought of,for there is time I can't understand my winning when I'm losing.It may be my pride it may be this lack of heading down and showing my problem like an open book.Tell me oh planner of the time and of the end and of the now what must this soul do to make a shining star in your world?I am no honest with my self my wins are straight my pride is a thing to be proud of and yet why am I losing my self to this endless cycle of renewal and bent stress? There is yet a sharp pain that strides through out my body and yet I take this pain as the karma of my own selfishness,is it right or is it wrong? is it some thing I can fix with just a snap of my fingers or with hard work and love of a winning loser? I play it straight,I play it to the fullest I play until I fixed all the problems but in the in I win by losing but what I am losing is my self.

Time Will Heal A Broken Heart

Someone broke your heart, you say,
And now you want to hide away.

Hiding doesn't solve a thing,
It only prolongs suffering.

Admit your pain but don't despair.
Surround yourself with friends who care.

Time will mend your broken heart,
And soon you'll be ready for a fresh start.

The pain and sorrow will fade away,
And you'll live to love another day.

The Vampire

She was a maiden with long red hair
A delicate monster to a heart filled with fear
Binding as one as he lays on her lap
As if he was taking an eternal nap
Love was strong but the pain was deeper
Did he know that she was a reaper?
The sense of desire was in the room
Complicated emotions felt like doom
A deadly attraction none can resist
The journey to death that couldn’t desist
Darkness overcomes the day
Shadows came and won’t go away
Alienated from the world, embraced in deception
Emptiness covered their hearts as they lived in corruption
He searched for comfort and found peace in her
She held him in her arms wishing they can last forever
Blood flooded up the place
Memories, none to erase
The vampire with a sorrowful heart
A relationship that will break apart
The lovers trap is love and passion
A gentle touch, a painful affection
Hearts slowly dying, one by one
With a suffering that will never be gone

Painting: Vampire (1895) - by Edvard Munch

My heart bleeds cause of the love I lost.
His cheating,ending my life is what it cost.
Bleeding heart is why I cry.
The pain is why I could die.

When he left I felt so alone.
Made my heart feel like stone.
Bleeding heart is why I cry.
The pain is why I could die.

My heart bleeds for my love for him.
He is gone so my love light has gone dim.
Bleeding heart is why I cry.
The pain is why I could die.

I bet it will be hard for me to love again.
Him leaving me lonely should be a sin.
Bleeding heart is why I cry.
The pain is why I could die.

Broken Lamb the Absent Shepard

Broken, shattered, torn little pieces,
Of my self; I continue to lose the way,

Dealing, deserving, dishing out,
A suitable punishment there is not,

A bloody trickling of tears,
Covering the body in sickness and in fear,

Stretching the length of my insides,
My shame knows no bounds, besides,

Who could fix this broken thing?
So lost in a cliche of words that is so a maze, bring

Me, this lost lamb, no shepard to be had,
No, deserving hardly, I willingly walk the other way.

Shall I not desert the others?
I shame mothers and I shame fathers,

Stay away from me!
Only pain and misery that will be.

I have depended on you through it all 
now im ready to jump and fall 

No more sweet innocent lines
id rather leave behind this pain and claim what is mine. 

The black spells all around, 
clame my heart without a sound

Prepared to loose my life 
to stab my heart with a sharp knife. 

Determined to rid of the pain inside
but not knowing how to cope and wanting to hide. 

I feel so afraid of the things ive done
of not being accepted and always having to run 

The darkness of the night shadows over this wee one
wanting to do anything that is fun

To do something daring, frightening and scary 
but longing for some love and comfort to relieve this weary 

Not knowing where to look, 
not even knowing the Holy book

I dont want my heart to feel so hurt 
to feel so burdened and disturbed

I can no longer see his face, 
and i feel so distant and scared in this place

All hope is lost at this time
im just hoping he can wait for me 

until I conquer this climb

I have lost my mind

I’ve already lost my mind
Life hasn’t been so kind
I need a doctor and I need a hero
Because I’m afraid of death, even though it’s slow
Sometimes I feel like the world is on my shoulder
And that my life will almost over
They tell me that I’m going to be okay
But things just get worst anyway
There are a lot of emotions that I keep deep inside
And as I get older these emotions can’t hide
My neck is breaking, because of my baggage 
But nobody knows that my life is just garbage
At least there are thing that I love
And I’m being looked after by the God above
Even though I don’t even know if he’s there
And sometimes I feel like nobody really care
I don’t feel crazy, in fact I feel insane
Why did I have to be the one to suffer all this pain?
But now I’ll tell the world “One day I will pay you back”
Pay for all the moments you made it grey and black
What am I to you; am I just a joke?
God please forgive me, but there’s some people I’d want to choke
What have I ever done to you; why do you treat me as you do?
Is it because I’m different or is it because I’m true
I’m filled with hate, anger and pain
But I really wish that I wasn’t insane
Off with my head, my mind is gone
Life wasn’t sweet but now I’m finally done

Bottled up Emotions

Never keep your emotions bottled up inside
If you do, your world will just collide
Believe me I know exactly how it feels
The pain is so extreme you would wish it wasn’t real
I act as if things do not hurt me
But inside it drives me crazy
It really helps to write my pain away
Even though that relief doesn’t actually stay
My lack of confidence destroys my soul
I guess I’ll never feel like I’m whole
I feel like I’m going to explode
For carrying all this heavy load
Sometimes I think of cutting my skin
Or shooting a bullet from under my chin
Burning or drowning, I don’t really care
As long as I’m longer going to be here
Sometimes I wish that I wasn’t born
And as I grow I get colder with all this scorn
My life is no picnic, but it isn’t hell
It’s somewhere in the middle and inside of a cell
Trapped by my mind and every emotion
Often I have a giant commotion
But I’m happy to know that other people has this pain 
And that I’m not the only one being driven insane
For everyone in this world that could relate
I hope that one day your life will be great

Broken heart torn apart

Its nothing but pian when love 
breaks your heart, and in the end, 
you are left torn apart. With a pain 
inside, they have left you to die, and 
find a new home, you have a feeling 
that you are left alone. No one is 
here when you have this fear that 
no one is there and no one really 
cares. Your mind is all blank, you 
just cant think, and the pain hurts 
so bad that you cant help but be 
sad. You heart has been torn and 
your feelings are worn, and you 
have no where to go, you just feel 
so alone. A heart is something that 
will be there forever, but when it is 
brooen, you feel as if you will be 
lost forever.

Sightless Seeker

I reach for you in this darkness and find you gone,
Budless bloom of a forsaken thorn,

Nectarine of my life, song of my night,
Conjure thyself once more to bless my singed sight,

Search me now and see my grief,
In you lieth my only relief,

Water my withered roots and sire another tree,
Entangle thyself deep inside of me.

Those Thoughts (extended version)

Nightmares, shame, and despair---
You don't go anywhere.
All alone in your mind
even with someone by your side.

You think, "Why can't everyone just leave me alone?"
You thought the hint would be cutting off the phone.
But everyone wants you to release your cares.
The next thing you do is frown and ask, "Where?"

Stinkin' thinkin' is what your mom calls it.
Bad thoughts falling down a bottomless pit.
You wake up hoping those feelings disappear;
but, as usual they end up going nowhere.

You can't seem to get rid of the pain
and in your heart an eternal rain.
No one really knows how you feel
and you have friends that always ask, "What the deal?"

But tomorrow always comes.
Bad days for you, but good for some.
Disparaging words flow in and out of your head.
You're alive but you're living like you're dead!

They're like cobwebs in your mind
that you can't seen to bind.
The hurt is always there
which has always been your fear.

You don't see the destruction your thoughts have created.
Yet relationships were destroyed with the people you've dated.
You allowed your pain to take away time.
Your anger towards others has become the real crime.

It all boils down to that one thing in your past.
A terrible time that from your mind you've yet to cast.
The pain from the physical and spiritual rape
that rolled around in your head like an old videotape.

The abuser was like a father to you
and when it first happened there was nothing you could do.
You felt trapped like you could go nowhere.
His power over you was to instill that fear.

The "fear" is what's wrong
and you must discover another heart song.
Up to this point life hasn't been the best.
Maybe letting go of this is the next test.

There has always been someone that has loved you.
Someone who is capable of taking you through.
He's a Friend that sticks closer than a brother,
Jesus--- a Savior like no other!

If you don't give it to Him so you can thrive
you will plummet to the depths and never survive.

Scars left behind

There are scars on my skin that nobody can see
But they’re not the ones that last for all eternity
I can’t believe that I’m going through all of this pain
And as I keep it in, I’m becoming more insane
As I grow and grow, it gets even stronger
Why did you burn and sting me forever?
Stuck in my past as I’m cutting my skin
I hope that God forgives me for my following sin
You are my father, so where is the affection?
Do you hate me, because I’m not perfection?
You burn, drown me, and sometimes a stab
You ridicule me and in my eye I got a jab
You tease me and beat me continuously
If you didn’t want kids, why did you make me?
I never asked to be born, why am I your mistake?
Why don’t you try to love me for heaven sake?
I am alone, just a stone that is bleeding
I don’t really know why I’m still breathing
Tired of life, nobody loves me
There was no good beginning, but my life won’t end badly
There is no escape, there is only death
Now it is time to breathe m last breath
Goodbye world, for life isn’t kind
And dad I hope you’ll suffer, the scars I left behind

Once I went to a hospital
There aids patient’s were on the beds with death’s proposal

As Aids is pronounced it is not so simple
To take every breath they cross huge pain hill

There I saw life and deaths fight
They hopefully fight for life but death was in their sight

For each breath they were given pills
But the gap between the world and patients make their life more terrible

Those people are far from life and closed to death
Those people with such short and painful life are kept away like filth

They are treated as if they have done crime
No one understand what brought them in such a time

They are nether fully death nor alive
By the physical and mental pain they prefer death, then to survive

On the other hand doctors does not allow them to die
With the medical power these half death people are force to survive

So Aids end is not so simple as Aids is pronounced
For these peoples terrible physical and mental death is announced

The Best I Can

You may cross the valley with its fields so fresh and green
Or go across the mountains that seem as there a dream

You can scale the ridges that run up and down the coast
Cross the seas that have collected their own share of ghost

No matter where you go or what ever you may see
You’ll never meet another soul that has two sides like me

On one side is the past on the other is the now
As I see it most of it doesn’t even matter anyhow

Life is but a roller coaster spinning up and down
One day we wear a smile the next may be a frown

One day we feel young and strong the next all worn out
A day in time creates a rhyme is this what I’m all about

I’m all alone in my home this window is my best friend
It is all in this life that lets the outside world come in

I don’t really go out too much I’m afraid of what I may do
So I sit here and live my life like the little old lady in the shoe

The pain and doubt wear me out weighing heavy on my soul
As I wonder would it be best if death just came and took its toll

Then I see my beautiful wife in her car coming down our road
I remember the reason I’m here is to help her with her load

It’s just another day I’m here to say, sitting here in my chair
I guess the old saying is true; “no one said life would be fair” 

If it were fair I reckon my ashes would be resting in some Urn
But I guess its up to God who picks when it will be our turn

If pain is gain then I’m insane, I’m in a grip of pain every single day
The fact of the matter is I’m in pain, each and every step of the way

But its all ok I’m here to say for I am still on a spiritual path
You don’t really have to be a genius to learn and do the math

One plus one equals two, and my darling that would be me and you
For the things you say and do, know my heart and love are forever true

When we met I was shake & bake always take, flying upon a distant star
Mess with me and very soon you’ll see, inside the trunk of my car

Now I’m give and love holding Christ above, just trying to be a man
Some days are good and others bad but know I’m doing the best I can

When I write it out you can have no doubt, it’s out of my control
Sometimes the words pour out of my heart and other times my soul

All we are is the things we do so I wrote this poem proud and true
The reason I do what I do ; I reckon I love each and every one of you

My mind is blank, no way to think.
I sink down into the ground,
Trying not to make a sound.
Torn and bound, i have yet to be found.
I feel as thopugh i am being crushed by a million pounds.
Now way to think,
I just sink.
Further and further down i go,
I think i have hit the lowest low.

A Beautiful Season

As I open my eyes the pain shoots through my head
I swear some times I think I would be better off dead

I love my wife, kids and friends, empty they would be
So I’ll remain that lonesome vessel sailing across the sea

They all know that I gave up, gave up all of my dreams
Those of all the power, glory and living blatantly obscene

I had power on the streets and power up in the pen
Know that I was once proud to be the very breath of sin

What is it like once we start trying so hard to change
Know that every facet of our life we must re-arrange 

One day I started teaching about trying to reach our dreams
You see it is blind people that walk through Demons schemes

Demons schemes are hard to see, do you know the reason why
Just like in a storm the clouds will cover, all the blue up in the sky

Demons schemes are like a dream, offering all the pleasure we may feel
Some days for me to not fall back on them, takes every drop of my will

See every single day that I stay clean and stay true to myself
I gain just a little more insight as to what is truly wealth

Wealth is a frame of mind, offering freedom to our soul
I write my poems because I wish to simply reach that goal

And the one thing that I wish, the one thing that keeps me here
Is because I hope that just one soul won’t go, through all my tears

You see I have tasted emptiness that is as cold as cold as can be
I only hope that one of you will learn, Please don’t end up like me

Today is tomorrows past, so make it last, be all that you can be
Praise the Lord every second and say, I wish to live for thee

Storms will come and they will go nothing ever changes that
Trust in God and know in your heart, his love is where its at

He knows our prayers before there spoken as we kneel to pray
Bound to his will as well as time, if our prayers shall come to bay

I Praise him for the pain I’m in because I know he has a reason
And at the end of all the pain, will come a very beautiful season

Yesterday I overdosed so I figured I should add that information in
To be a true example of right we must include even the accidental sin

I could not believe the words I heard as they said you’ve overdosed
Though the taste of death in my mouth was as familiar as buttered toast

See I have tasted death so many times that it is like a long lost friend
My life is still the same only difference is, the truth I will not bend
This story is the truth and goes with my blog

I am,now,my own coffin...
Moment by moment I die within...
My breathes are a real burden,I swear....
I am an object beyond repair....!

Pain is my possession,pain my friend....
Pain is that truth that does not end...
My life is now a complete mess....
As I stand like a mere witness....!

Was it my fault that I tried to be happy...?
Was it my folly that I was not lucky?
Why did my happiness run away from me....
As though I was its arch-enemy...!

What meaning does this life make....
When I'm dead though I'm awake...
Or,say,I'm living though I'm dead....
Shattered in the battle between the heart & the head....!

Where Frozen Embers still Burn

I sat down to see
my past looking at me

My soul had a yearning
for embers still burning

My eyes grew wet
from years of regret

The love that I seek
leaves my heart weak

The father I needed
with pleas left unheeded

Take away the pain
left in his name

Wash away the memory
of the fear he gave to me

Frozen in time
with his horrendous crime

Wine punched with tears...
& agony of some years...
Makes a deadly combination...
Simply enough for self-annihilation...!

Moist memories...maddening moments...
A multitude of heart-breaking sentiments...
Rare is such painful intoxication...
That resembles a silent assassination...!

When tides erupt in the seas within...
It hardly matters if U lose or win...
U hardly care if your eyes rain...
If U are an addict to pain....!

Wine punched with tears...
& the agony of some years...
Add wings to the dormant senses...
That gushes out from self-imposed fences....!

My Tears are Gone

Because of you, the cry of my heart cannot escape through my eyes.
My tears are all gone, but not the pain I feel inside.
The sleepless nights, full of heart wrenching sobs,
No longer plague me but… I want the tears to fall.
Without this luxury, there is no escape.
The pain overwhelms me, like my heart’s being reshaped. 
It’s been so long now…they said it would get better in time.
I’ve waited and waited; only to see through their lies.  

To everyone else, my heart has healed. 
But I’ve become a good actress, and put up a shield.
My shattered heart won’t let anyone in.
I feel all alone in this battle I can’t win.
I’ve tried to get over him; I’ve tried to move on
But without him with me, I feel so wrong.
Its unnatural living, as I go on my way.
I feel something missing, every moment, every day. 

Oh I cried and I cried, but like a sudden drought,
Somewhere along the way, my tears ran out.
I have no one to talk to; I can’t tell him my feelings.
So I live my life, pretending I’m healing.
Inside there’s a fire, burning at my soul.
A huge void is left, only you can make whole.
As my heart grows numb, I long for escape
I have yet to find it. And so I will wait…

Never Fear

A lifetime of love in the wink of an eye
I can feel slipping by

Nothing left for me to do
But feel the pain inside of you

If but a second I could trade
The memory of kisses shall never fade

With that second what I would do
One last kiss received from you

But for now sweet friend of mine
I must settle in to do my time

Love is the final test
I beg of you please do your best

Shed not a single tear
For in love memories dear

Our bodies they can place apart
But souls stay held together by the hearts

In the hearts held so dear
Mine is yours never fear

When I left  home  one  day
my wife and I were fighting
because she did not want me
to go. I didn't kiss her by.
The police had a road block 
set up for me and I went back
to prison.I had just Paroled 12
days before.The pain of that 
missed kiss bore deep into my
soul for the next eighteen 
months. I wrote this poem as
soon as I got to High Desert
State Prison. This is a pain 
I will never feel this pain
again. I will also never go
against my wifes wishes again.
Thank You

The Great I Am

There is a beauty that lies with-in
Often hidden in a world of sin

We each hold beauty in our own way
Let us all please bow our heads to pray

I once kept my beauty hid from view
Something that I shall never again do

True beauty is born with-in the soul
And nourishing that is now my goal

I love my Lord and I love your life
Yet, all of my heart belongs to my wife

As broken down as my body may be
I’m in a great deal of pain and misery

But do you know what; that’s all ok
For it is the Lord that guides my way

And he has brought me to this place
I have an awful lot pain but no disgrace

If I am the river then my Lord is the dam
My course was altered by “The Great I am”

I'm brimming with incompleteness....
The whole of my life is just a mess...
I'm missing something but it is strange....
I do not want that for a change !
I'm less than half of fulfilment...
I'm immune to the fun element....
There is something that can stop me cry...
But as I said,I'll not try....!
Let years roll with tear-drops....
Because the Time never stops....
I will endure this futility & pass through...
Making incompleteness my virtue....!
And by the way some dry plants....
Even grow in desert sands....
So some hope will emerge in my heart....
Like an oasis in the barren desert....
But even if the hope dry....
Does not grow in me,I'll not cry....
I'll try to sustain everything....
Without running for that lure tantalising....!

Endless Teardrops

Tears streaming down from her eyes so red
Evoking emotions deep inside my weary head

My heart is bleeding for you, my dear good friend
The pain, the hurt, the sadness when will it end

I wish to dash off to you and hold you so tight
Lessening your pain for just maybe one night

I miss your laughter, your hugs , your smile
I am coming my dear, I will stay for awhile

It really hurts me to see a person in pain
Why do people have to be vane, it's insane

I really don't know what to say, so I pray
For peace, love, and harmony, everyday

A Moment of Love

To the shadows of forgotten ghost
Let us all propose a toast

Wasting away their lives in the pen
I once shared in the banquet of sin

I often think of the people I know
Warriors who once shared my soul

Back to back we fought on the yard
Prison made us all cold and hard

I receive letters almost everyday
From damn good men who are wasting away

Asking favors to which I must comply
Taking flowers to mothers who break down and cry

I often taste my own broken heart
Consoling a mother who is falling apart

I have many mothers know it is true
But my own mother I never knew

Just try to inhale the pain of my plight
I have to deliver more flowers tonight

Dear Lord have mercy for heavens sake
I really don’t know how much more I can take

I feel pain few people ever know
As I let the tears soften my soul

Gaining strength from the good Lord up above
So I can offer another mother a moment of love

It's more than just the absence of light
For men have considered it their plight
And through their eyes as they see
In the darkness is the place to be
In prison I managed to learn a lot
Things that can't be sold are bought
There is a deceptive illusion in all we see
When seeking "The other side of reality"
Where reality is but a frame of mind
To the humbling pain we are all blind
Behind the walls it's so clear to see
You seek the pain let the pain be me
You look into the mirror upon your host
Study the demons inside of your ghost
To ever be able to complete your task
You close them up inside of your mask
Then against everything you love and feel
You let your soul play the deal
Lost in the evil of a single day
Reality has one more soul to pay
Underneath the watchful 24 hour lights
Reality keeps darkness hid from sight
As the darkness takes years from you
Be careful in all that you say and do

I am reduced to a the force of the friction...
& pain has become my only addiction...!
Tears,tears & only tears...
Have befriended me all these years...!

The silence of loneliness or the loneliness of silence...
Have made me insane..crippled each sense...
Even the breathes enquire me time & again...
As to why I'm living in this acute pain..!

My heartbeats were never so rude to me...
They are abusing me so petulantly...
They wish to escape the burden of my heart...
Knowing they would never have another fresh start....!

Every second of my life passe s painfully....
Trampled by Time so ruthlessly...
Sometimes I hear my rebel voice...
That a one-time-death will be a better choice...

Yeah better because I die again & again..
Succumbing to the drafts of pain..
Although it is an addiction...
Each day is a painful addition...!

But wait-a-minute,how will I kill my heart..
Where she stays like a pivotal part..
Only to save her presence in me...
I have to live,& die, painfully...!

Love Is Suppose

Love is suppose to be kind But people push it just behind. It makes me sad to see all this Love for some is neither peace nor bliss. But that's what most people do Some live like this everyday. They just don't seem to care Eyes blinded only by pain and tears. Confused minds cold hearts All these lives are torn apart. And the children pay the price This is not in any way right or nice. Everybody deserves to be happy But what I see is really crappy I meet sad people all the time And in their eyes I see no love sublime. People keep searching everyday They think they know more than you Some amassing more than they need for Always wanting and wishing far for more. But that's what most of us do In this life we all try to touch the sun. And as we look at the sky at night We all wish that everything was right. We all want love peace and joy Find a place no one can destroy. We all want to reach for the stars Make our dreams come true from the start . In the end there is only right and wrong And black and white makes things flow. Love is supposed to be nice and kind Love is not supposed to hurt and be unkind. But sometimes love can cause us all pain Love can create a very good and strong chain. But sometimes love can be the wrong kind And produce pain and fear in the heart and mind. With the right direction and guidance We can all make it through life and advance Take life by the hand and sometimes dance looking at the sky Don't take anything for granted, but look ahead for a new day. Love is supposed to be kind But people push it just behind What this world needs more is God and love Look for God and you can find all His goodness from above.

Moments in time will fade away, however precious they may seem, they will not last...

Look to Jesus Christ and know He's by your side, 
know that though your pain is great, 
GOD is greater!

He holds your sorrowing hearts in the palms of His hands
ever nearer to His heart and surrounds you in His love.

The day will come when He will free you from your pain and wipe all tears away,
until then; He will comfort you here and now.

Watch and pray, be patient and strong, our LORD will come!
We shall be reunited with all loved ones who have gone home to be with our great GOD and King.

Moments in eternity are precious and will never fade away, they shall forever last...

Forever and a Day

I was so happy the day I became your wife
It was with you I wanted to spend the rest of my life

I loved you with all of my heart
Never imagining we would be apart

It's been forever and a day since I last saw you
I've been left alone not knowing what to do

On that day your last breath you did take
Leaving behind pain and grief in your wake

Death came to soon and took your life away
Now pain cuts me like a knife everyday

From this sadness there is no relief
Wondering if I will suffer forever in my grief

Surrounded by madness, engulfed in it's grip;
Through the door of insanity, sometimes we all slip.

A world filled with darkness, a bottomless pit.
Chaos and destruction, no one gives a spit.

Hatred and anger, well up deep within;
And nothing else matters, everything seems a sin.

No hope in my eyes, my faith has long went.
My reason for living, like my energy, well spent.

Somewhere at the bottom, i reach out a hand;
Hoping against all, on a kind heart it lands.

My world has all crumbled, there seems no way out.
Every move i make falters, i can't help but shout.

My night's filled with worry, my day's filled with dread.
My faith has long left me, i just want to be dead.

Somewhere in the darkness, reality strikes hard.
The pain is unbearable, i want to blow my brains 'cross the yard!

I reach out for faith, and reach out for love;
But darkness besets me, where's my God up above?

No one seems to love me, no one seems to care.
The whole world is my burden, alone, not to share.

The light shines no longer, I'm at the end of my rope;
Send me help, my God, quickly, or i won't be able to cope.

All i know now is pain, a great darkness inside.
So much anger and chaos, and nowhere to hide.

What's left of my life? Why should i keep trying?
The pain inside hurts so, all i think about is dying!

As I lay me down to sleep.
The pain I feel is so deep.
I listen to the sounds of a world at peace. 
Tears start to fall silently down my cheek.
These tears are not strangers to my life of constant pain.
I’ve shared many days with these tears of shame.
I prayed to a higher power, I want someone to believe in me.	
But fear consumes me, imprisoned inside myself never free.
Causing pain and disappointments in so many hearts.
Is effortless to me from the start.
When my heart feels for another I feel like a serial killer with a itch.
I cause death with no control, secretly wishing it was me in that ditch.
The many masks I wear fool even me, I smile fighting back tears.
I willingly give all my love and trust, when its truly fueled by  fears.
I think I have given in to all the hurt and regrets I can bear.
My life’s lesson was to realize I am to be alone, I don’t have any more to share.

The Most Beautiful People

Sometimes we write in a certain way
That’s the style God choose that day

I pick no subject I just start to write
I just simply rely on my inner-sight

I truly feel pretty good on this day
It’s all just a frame of mind they say

I headed out back so I could mow
Busted and disgusted, wife said no

I hurt all the time the drop of a dime
Pain will always be a friend of mine

Pain is the only one I had for years
So much pain full of so many tears

Love on the inside, pain on the out
It last day after day without a doubt

I’m not quite sure where this will lead
As I eat all the pain and plant the seed

Love planting them, then watching them grow
Into the most beautiful people I could ever know

One of the most beautiful, check this out
Tag Chris Higgins, what this poems about

I'm pretty sure by now we all know just how 
special Christopher Higgins is to our mixture
of perfect homegrown soup,  Bro I love you

My Final Verse

Everybody has a story there’s a song for every human being
Each has an individual message told by the words they sing

Sometimes that song is full of pain it’s full of pain and strife
Other times it clearly describes the one true blessing of our life

In the story of my song if it were to come to end this very day
What do you really think the final verse of my song would say?

This truly is my philosophy, this is my true philosophy of life
The final verse of my song will sing, “My God I love my Wife”

That’s the way my final verse will start and also how it will end
For when the Lord gave my wife to me, he gave me my friend

My wife is not just my lover though loving her has been great
She is more the essence of my soul she is my true soul mate

To save her one second of pain I would take pain ten thousand years
Because I know every second of it she would be there to dry my tears

Before I would cause her any pain I would die the most dreaded death
Because I shall adore her heart and soul with my every single breath

To the world I am not too proud to say, not too proud to say this at all
Without her my final verse would have no words for she has wrote them all

they can hold both pain and individuality

Another Holiday

It is yet another holiday without my kids,
And once again I feel the urge to keep the pain hid.

No one knows how truly alone I feel.
They just tell me in time I will heal.

How can I get over this though?
This is the most excruciating pain I know!

It is not physical but a pain of the heart.
It is unfair to keep mother and child apart.

There are days that my emotions are so raw,
I just want someone or something to cleave and claw.

This is pure agony at its best.
I no longer have a heart in my chest.

Maybe oh maybe this is a dream.
No it is not and yet I cannot scream.

The choice for them to leave was not mine to say,
The wonderful state decided it was my price to pay.

So once again I mourn my loss and cry,
For my asking for help came at a cost way too high.

I sit here in no one way or other,
And ask myself " What am I if I can't be a Mother?"

Who Knew

I sit and wonder each and every day,
Why with you did I stay?

Was it truly because
It was just the way it was?

Maybe it was because I felt love does endure.
Or maybe just maybe I was not so sure.

Maybe it was my price to pay,
For getting my children taken away.

Maybe being black and blue,
Could match the emotional pain I was going through.

Maybe it can never be enough,
You see this pain is just too rough!

I tried to change you and me.
For now I know that was never to be.

Now the time has come to let you go,
But the pain of you is all I know.

The good times that we had,
Will always be outweighed by the bad.

I wish I could forget us even from the start,
But unfortunately you still have a piece of my heart.

I never thought I would have this to say,
You are the one regret I have to this day!

You cost me more than heartache and pain.
You made me feel so insane.

I may never know all my reasons for staying,
As to this day I am still paying.

I have now walked away from you,
To try to start life anew.

The day has come, who knew?
The day that I regret ever loving you.

Few Of My Woes

Some days this pain is just too raw.
It is more than me just feeling blah.

So much pain from too many sources.
Through my mind this turmoil courses.

Will I have peace of mind?
Will true love I ever find?

Will I see my kids again ever?
Or will those bonds be forever sever?

Why can't I ever be normal?
Why am I always so formal?

Does anyone really care?
I know that life is unfair.

These are just a few of my woes.
They are worse than any foes.

One day the answers I shall find.
Then I can no longer be confined.

In Heaven He Does Wait

Grief is pain without the one I love
I know he's looking down from above

His eyes sparkle as he looks lovingly at me
Now he is finally forever pain free

No more suffering will he do
Trying to see death from his view

Our love strong enough to out last all
Even death's invisable wall

In Heaven he does wait
Until I come through the pearly gate

Reunited we will once again be
Together forever in eternity

So Many By Now

So many by now are tumbling down
They come  and don't know how.

Meanwhile pain is gripping her heart
Squeazing with a clamp each part.

Flowing tears can't seem to stop
Quietly her soul absorbs each drop.

so many by now are tumbling down
They come and don't know how.

Outside the night is dying down
She hungers ,again, for the dawn.

For now pain is gripping her heart
Squeazing with a clamp each part.

Flowing tears can't seem to stop
Quietly her soul absorbs each drop.

Life's not full of love, it's full of hate

Standing on the lowest point on the earth
With burning heart giving me sensation of hearth
On such a cold dark night 
Without a vision of an angel upon my sight

I wonder by here all alone each and every day
Without my heart, my life, passing through my way
Oh my sun has left me never to rise 
Leaving me helpless, my life’s a despise

But my love, you are worth all the while 
The whole world stops with your single smile
I’m just a admirer nothing more than that 
My life’s a cold floor now, you were my mat

By those sweetly spoken words form your lip
My heart runs, your words are always there to keep
Worse than me, my heart’s the one who’s hurt so much
I miss your smile, your voice your silent touch

Every time I dream I miss you
Feels like holding you picture and kiss you
Years have gone but you I haven’t forgotten
Guess how hard it’s to live without a sun 

Ask me the pain of that, it’s been ages
That’s the only reason I’m filling blank pages
Rejoice in life is not for me
Pain in heart, happy for others to see

Like the candle burning beside me, my heart burns
Through these veins of mine, your vision runs
It’s so hard to hold the tears filled in the eyes
To search for the sun at night in the skies

To be in dark room full of fears
With songs of depression into my years
It’s so easy to be a girl, loved by all 
Unlike boys, never happy in life, always to crawl

Surrounded by the world I’m just a pawn
Without you in my head form dusk to dawn
For as your love I’m out of tear I can’t cry
I’m so young now for me to die

But to die for you, you are really worth it
Still I’m alive, for us to meet
Its not that I can’t die for thee 
I can’t live without you in front of me to see 

How can I even think of dying?
I’d rather be happy like this, always crying
I’ll wait for you till I make sea of tears
I’ll really wait even if it will take thousand of years

You are really beautiful and always jolly
My dear I’m ugly and always melancholy 
You my love, your life’s always a bloom
But my life, oh poor me always a gloom

Without a single picture of you, I wait
Without my heart by my side, my life still a gait
A sad feeling inside my heart, always to born 
Life full of pain sorrow and frisson

Sitting on my bed, this precious time I kill
The empty blank pages on copy is what I fill
Life’s what you decide, not of your fate
Life's not full of love it's full of hate

Since The Day You Died

Since the day you died
Life has been an emotional ride

The numbness starting to subside
So many tears my eyes have cried

Emotional pain becoming part of everyday life
Grief cutting through me like a knife

Wonder how much pain I can endure
Before I just can't take it anymore

Last night a sad dream I had,
This one, for me was quite bad.

I was at work and my baby I did see,
He knew right away it was me.

He broke away from this person other.
The new one he was to call mother.

Into my arms, my child flew,
There was no other joy to compare to!

My youngest son, my baby boy,
Oh the feeling of utter joy!

He says" I want to come home Mommy".
Oh Lord the pain hits like me a tsunami!

I awoke with a start!
Breaking was my heart...

Tears streaming upon my face,
The pain just won't erase.

For me the pain is with me every day.
It will never ever end I dare say!

The Last Letter

When did all this drama start?
Was it when you stole my heart?
You ripped it out with no thought,
Love is such a pain that's not what's taught.
I was taught love was to be splendid,
I think differently now that my heart got blended.
Blended into a puddle of pain,
which my tears washed away just like rain.
my tears are like rain drops falling from the sky,
Maybe that's why I always want to stay high.
I smoke to cover up my feelings all mixed together,
It doesn't always work so i sit here with a feather.
Writing down all my pain and hurt,
Writing down all the ways you made me feel like dirt.
I'm over you today but can't quite speak on tomorrow.
I gave you my heart but just to borrow,
I want it back now so hand it here,
I'm finished with you now I can see so clear.
I now say goodbye for forever I hope,
Only now I must finds new ways to cope.
I'm tired of hurting each and every night,
So this will be the last letter i write.

These spinning thoughts are stuck in my head,
They’re evil and painful - impossible to shed.
I can’t seem to tolerate my life anymore.
Everything is so dark, everything I abhor.
It seems as though I’m starting to lose touch.
This pain and these voices are becoming too much.
My soul has been stolen and taken away.
How can I take this even one more day?
Thoughts of death keep flashing at me.
If I ended it now would I finally be free?
Would all of this darkness finally be gone
Or would my pain and sadness just linger on?
All of this darkness is making me numb.
From where has this pain and suffering come?
I’ve decided to end what I used to adore.
This life that I lead I can live with no more.

No matter what you go through
Don't ever stop what you do

Forget the pain that was in you
Fight the pain and continue

Wherever your life takes you to 
Live your life and make your dreams come true

Don't ever fall apart and never frown
Never let anything break you down...
