- Valentine Jewel -

A timeless sense of joy a magical fairy dust sprinkle from the stars
My heart's flame one rhythmic and sensual warm dance

Listening to our sweet music echoes magic whispers inside the mirrors glow 
Power stands within the beauty romancing warm waves uniting flow 

In a halo of silver light shining luster deeply sparkles over wishes beam 
Each new moon embracing forever spotlighting precious silver ball in one dream   

Our love brought us together through life's destiny
Two souls have united entwined in love's single embrace
Beautiful snowflake you're one of a kind always unique falling true rings 
Softly warm melting desires lovingly touch gently finding Heaven sings  

When the gaze of my eyes meets yours
You bring me joy and happiness my dear valentine

Paranoid love

Tell me that this fear is just paranoia in my mind, 
we're not straining, we're not struggling, 
we're not sinking, we're just fine. 
I'm not perfect my dearest, but damn have I tried, 
and I'll try harder but I know I'll have the same results every time. 
Do you want me all the ways that I am? 
With all the struggles and the tears and the clinging to your hand. 
I fear your getting further and Im left on the shore to stand, 
watching you in the distance with a bullet in my hand. 
Tell me all this worry, its just clutter in my mind, 
tell me not to worry that we're doing just fine. 
Cause Im scared to run you off and I feel Im falling deep. 
And Im so frightened of these thoughts that its getting hard to sleep.
All I know is that the heart wants what it desires, 
because of you the match inside has turned into a fire. 
And I feel the broken glass thats sticking from my skin, 
Wondering if you'll remove the pain or push it back in. 
My hearts frantic wondering if you feel the same, 
pleading and begging for more than just a saying, 
but to feel and to see that im not alone, 
with being in this love thats overwhelming. 
Once I told you that we didnt have a spark, 
but you were lighting up and I was sitting in the dark. 
And this fire, this blaze its wrapped in desire. 
Im terrified to lose you, I think I might die or, 
maybe disappear from all the pieces falling out, 
im going crazy but when i open my mouth, nothing comes out, 
and I cant explain to you why I just need to hold you close, 
why every time you leave Im scared to let you go, 
why these tears are building up behind my eyes, 
all I know is that the heart wants what it desires 
and it desires to be your wife. 
So tell me in my panic, that your words are true, 
tell my my dearest what I mean to you, 
tell me that this paranoia is all within my mind 
we're not struggling, we're not sinking tell me we're just fine

Who Knew Your Forever Was

Who Knew Your Forever Was

Who knew your forever was eleven months and a day
me trying to keep you , buckets of love in each play
Girl, your sexy body was the drug I desperately needed
yet you went to ice cold as my hurting heart pleaded!

Who knew my faithful love, sadly was never enough
you would hit me with heartbreak and say tough
Girl, your body set my heart burning in a blaze
now your leaving sent this man into a drunken haze!

Who knew your paradise was to be a future dark Hell
deeper the false ride you gave the farther I fell
Girl, I thought to love and your life truly save
now you cast me into this dark and lonely grave!

I am just too far gone to now be rightly thinking
I sit here my mind rotting , heart rapidly sinking
Girl, your leaving rips me apart, sets me to drinking
I sit here in darkness, my broken soul all bleeding!

Robert Lindley
August 17th 1977

note: I wrote this over three decades ago, while drunk, 
 on a Saturday night. 
Beaten down by a woman that broke my soul . That cut
my heart out and ate it with relish. I tried to get
her to see her folly but no dice. Life is like that.
People run their own path picking up pleasure and 
then casting it away. Youth must suffer from its lack
of experience...

I dreamed a dream of You

Yesterday I dreamed a dream,
that had no end.
You in your white gown, and long, black hair flowing.
You were calling my name.
I heard you, but I couldn't reach you!

And when I say your soul was tainted.
You went out in the night life.
You dressed in your black, evening ball gown.
You danced till the Red Sun came out, over the horizon.

You smiled at me.
A flame in my heart burned red hot!
My knees and hands shook with nerves;
Nerves of love and joy.
I blew you a kiss,
but you turned away!
Oh, please don't turn away from me,
for I would die, if it happened again!

Your beautiful and golden heart showed me the truth.
The truth that every gentleman wants to hear.
I've seen you walk the streets,
in the blue dawn of August.
As I followed you, you stopped and looked at me.
You smiled so beautifully, and my heart fluttered into oblivion!

You walked with your friends and I went my way.
I couldn't find a single trace of you that day.
I cried out "Why did I leave her like this?!"
I looked for you, all over the courtyards and town squares!
Yet no sight of your beauty.
... No sight of your golden heart, that I hold so dear to mine.
Where did you go?
Why did you leave?
Why did I leave... that is the question!

I should have stayed by your side,
till the ends of time.

Yet I had left.

One gloomy and parish midnight.
I came along a road,
and soon found myself in front of a wayward cafe.
Smiling faces all around me.
I spotted a beautiful face that outstood all the other faces around me.
It was yours.

Your face brought me to sanity and I went over too you!
You spotted me and tried to run!
I caught you in the dirty hallway and pulled you in.

Our eyes met and I fell in love once again.
Sanity re-entered my mind, body and soul.
I kissed you and you kissed back.
You held my hand, and we left the cafe and walked down the street.

The street was gloomy, yet we together brightened the dark street.
We went back to the lit up city streets, of the lands filled with smiling faces,
and we fell in love and slept together.

You lay there in my restless arms and I gave you a sweet kiss,
upon your sweet and soft head.
Your dark hair was sweet smelling and felt of silk.
I closed my eyes and fell asleep with you,
there in my arms and we dreamed together
till the morning came and woke me up,
and took you away from my weak and weary arms.

I dreamed a dream of you.

Princess, princess, please calm down,
Wear your diamond, glory crown.
I’ll make you queen, someday, you’ll see,
As long as you will marry me.

Princess, princess, don’t hate me,
I only wish that you could see.
That I love you with all my heart,
I wish that we will never part.

Princess, princess, don’t you die,
I promise you, I’ll never lie.
Stay with me through life and death,
And please don’t ever hold your breathe.

Princess, princess, don’t you cry,
I will never say goodbye.
It hurts too much to leave your side,
Like all of me has stopped and died.

Princess, princess, don’t you see,
I’m your prince, and groom to be.
Forever together, and never apart,
I give you my all, and even my heart.

Feelings Can't Be Denied

My feelings can’t be denied,
for passion’s flame burns too deep.
And I feel all warm inside,
just watching her fall asleep.

She's in her fantasy place,
with shadows steeped in pleasure.
And an aura frames her face,
almost too soft to measure.

Venus loathes to rise at night,
and cross ebony skies.
For She cannot top this sight,
no matter how hard She tries.

Nuzzled awake with a kiss,
loving lips welcome my charms.
And we share feelings of bliss,
snuggled in each others arms.

This is for you from me I hope you noticed its not that hard to see.
I thought you were perfect for me, but there are things that you are hiding from me.
I felt like I could fly.
But it was only one big lie.
I got a knife and I wonder when will I die.
It's like rain every drop is pain.
I always tell you how I feel.
Never kept no secrets and always kept it real.
I like art and I want to draw you one big heart.
It was beauty and kindness that I would see in front of me.
I cared about you before me, but I also got a crazy story.
Your beauty, your eyes came to me with lies.
Now I am frozen like ice.
Got nowhere to go, nothing to do, but remember that I always loved you.
I still have thoughts about you and the long talks that I had with you.

Do you remember the feeling

 Do you remember the feeling,
that feeling you just could not describe?
It from which comes deep within your soul,
the pitting itch that gives you an anxious vibe.
 Do you remember the feeling,
that one that makes you feel so alive?
It takes you by surprise,
it's that moment when you first seen their eyes.
 Do you remember the feeling,
when they first said your name?
Your hands started trembling,
you fight for just the right things to say.
 But suddenly..
 Do you remember the feeling,
when they first said goodbye?
their eyes no longer the same,
you no longer wanted to go on living,
but you still fight for just the right things to say.

I've Scribbled This Song For You

I've Scribbled This Song For You...

I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...

now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,

la laa laa la laa laa laa...

(repeat to fade)

With you in autumn evening

The sweet songs of birds, We hand in hand across the lawn, Pansies white yellow and violet Tossing their heads in the breeze. Somewhere the sound of falling leaves. The sound of squirrel cracking the walnut. Calm weather warm sun, White fluffy clouds forming different shapes, A passenger flight in the blue sky, Sun born in the horizon and about to fade in the horizon, Both our heartbeats echo inside of chest, Shutting and opening of our lips, Your unkempt hair flying backwards, Yellowish west sky. Heart shaped fig leaf's shadow. If I could stop this world from spinning, I would do so, Just to be with you In this autumn evening.

A Beautiful Reverie

Here I lie beside you
My heart goes thump.thump.thump.
My soul dances inside you
Reveling in the texture of your own.
Electric and flowing 
The currents of our love
Glow like neon lights
Illuminating the hope in my eyes.
Though we're not moving
I feel so incredibly alive
Invincible to my past
Untouchable by all who lack
That gentle touch of when 
You lean in and brush my face
Your lips grazing my skin
Softer than a butterfly.
And then you gaze into my eyes
I fall into your depths 
Twirling like the autumn leaves
Melting into your smile 
Your soul reminiscent of summer.
You pull me into your arms 
And for a moment I'm lost 
Breathless and in awe
Staring in the face of pure exquisite love 
And there you are - holding it 
Glowing in the moonlight of my stare.
My heart beats - its drum pounding away
Echoing a song thats lost its words
I touch your cheek and smile
My hands cant stay away
My lips s l o w l y, draw near yours
Hovering, and then - 
Part, a soft warmth against them.
My eye lids pulling shut
Dragging me into a silent heaven
I pull away - and what seemed millennia
Lasted only a moment, a second in time
But this is our love
This is what you do to me
You make me invincible and fragile
Lost forever in a beautiful reverie.

From The Peircing Of An Arrow To The Cold Hearted Fate Of love

her life is on the tip of his tongue
the sparkle leaves her eyes
an arrow to his chest
drawing her to her death
a feather falling from the sky
the death of an angel
her wings turn blood red
like the color of the red sea
the sword drawn out of the ground
by her own hands
what he could not do himself
she has done for him
He falls unto to his knees
the arrow she had put into his chest
the greatest of betrayals
She asked for her death wish
Holding the ring in her palm
He looks into her eyes
watching the love she had left for him disappear
Falling into despair
Her face hitting the ground
Blood surrounded her body
He watched as she died
He couldn't move from the love that had pierced his chest

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde's Love Poem

I love how your long chestnut hair flows over your gentle shoulders,
And when the sun searches you out for a moment, your hair sparkles…

Because I lit a match and threw it into that rat infested hair ball that you
Waste all your time on.  Next up is your head which I’m going to rip…

Don’t listen to him.  I’m mesmerized by your deep blue eyes, when they lovingly
Gaze In my direction.  I will never make you shed a tear, my dear…

But I’m going to kick you about this filthy house.  It looks like all you’ve
Done all day is piss in the wind.  And stop your crying; your baggy eyes are…

Ignore him, my love.  Your soft, gentle touch upon my face arouses my senses to new Heights.  All my cares wash away as your aquiline hand slowly glides along my arm…

What the hell does he know?  If you don’t get your boney hand off me, I’m going to break it In half.  And the next time I catch you trying to be nice I’m going to throw you out with…

Stop that, Hyde.  Sorry, my love, but as I was saying, your body is a masterpiece sculpted out of the finest treasures.  I’m in awe of its supple curves, how it flinches to the touch…

Oh, shut up Doc, you’re killing me.  And speaking of killing, I feel like pummeling
The living daylights out of your emaciated, piece of good for nothing…

Please be mine baby, before I’m lost forever to…

I’m in charge, so get over here and take it like…

I’m fading, my love.  Hurry, say you’ll be mine.  Save us.

I’m going to tear you apart.  You’re no baby, you’re a…

Save me, before the monster wins…

Too late, Dr., she will be all mine soon…

Just a kiss, my dear.  Just a…

‘Slap’, take that b****...

One kiss.  Now!  -The Dr. and his lover kiss-  Thank you, my love.  Let that vile 
Monster rest in peace, so that we will be left in peace from it for evermore.

I were asked
My dear,
What in you I would like
To change,
My answer, emphatically,
NOTHING, would be, 
Unchanged, I wish you 
To remain,


How could I dare
With your splendid being 
In any way, 
The Lord, in HIS wisdom
Has, you my love,
Perfectly MADE?

The Ice Cream Truck

the ice cream truck

do you remember in fourth grade when it was the end of the school year?
kids running around in class, volunteer parents planning for field day events, teachers grading tests.
a year's worth of crafts and colorful displays filled the walls like wallpaper.
you can hear singing from the kids in room 4b, ms. mcdonald's class.

the weather outside was a balmy 80 on this june day.
text books, paint brushes, and the obligatory pre-chewed bubble gum filled the desk cavity.
the assistant principle announces something inaudible on the speaker system.
and we are fast approaching the anticipated summer break.

summer. that's when spring lovers finally kiss and the butterflies leave their cocoon.
birds singing and the flowers are saturated with their red, blue, and pink hues.
the last day of school is finally here and the children ride the bus for the last time.
vacations. swimming pools. ocean city. the smell of hot dogs, grass and humidity.

jersey summers are hot. really hot where i grew up. you sweat just by looking out the window.

then one day, the familiar sound of circus-like music faintly approaches town.
louder and louder until everyone knows its the ice cream truck turning the street corner.
the famous mr. softee, or good humor truck, or some local self employed bearded man.
whatever it was, ice cream in all kinds, flavors, colors, and shapes was 25 yards and 25 cents away.

the music kept playing as children seemingly sprayed out of their homes in rapid succession.
a gathering soon followed with parents and children standing all against that delicious truck.
chocolate. peanut butter. vanilla. strawberry. cookies and cream. cookie dough.
sandwiches. bowls. cones. smoothies. sundays. sprinkles. nuts. oh so yummy!

i miss that ice cream truck. i miss those days...

...and i miss you just as much.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

The Wind

You are like the wind

Gently guiding me by while barefoot on a beach
No matter how far, I’m always within its reach

Pushing me through rough seas like a sail
With you mountains are nothing to scale

Like the wind comes great change
And all begins to rearrange

You force the snow to sting my face
Foot prints in the sand you erase

You slow me down
Mountains still all around

I wait for your storm to pass
With each half full glass

But behind every storm
Lies a sunrise to keep me warm

In that light I shall lay
Because long I have waited for this day

Sacred love

Goosebumps & chills 
Inhabit my skin 
As I explore hers 
From her toes to her grin 

Her pupils are dilated 
My love is her drug 
She's starting me up 
She's my spark plug 

The lights are off 
The candles are lit 
I'm kissing her neck 
& rubbing her clit 

She's gritting her teeth 
& pushing me down 
So hot & moist 
Hope I don't drown 

Can't tell what's wetter 
My lips or hers 
Her face is cringing 
An orgasm occurs 

Just one of many 
My hands are soaked 
But I'm not done yet 
Another's evoked 

Foreplay is finished 
Our bodies are red 
Burning with desire 
She rushed me to bed 

Our clothes are gone 
We're drenched in our sweat 
Our sexual needs 
Are more than met 

The rest of the night 
Morphed into a blur 
Then I woke up 
Still clung to her 

This wasn't sex 
But sacred love 
All I'd long for 
All I'd dream of

You Make Me Happy

You make me happy because you 
are you 
Everything you say and everything 
you do,
I feel that you are so real 
It’s a good feeling that I was longing 
to feel
With you I’m all smiles
To see you I would walk miles and 
Seems though you went through so 
much in your life 
Now it’s time to settle down and do 
what’s right
You’re very outgoing and easy to talk 
You are so cool you are my boo
When I’m with you it seems as if 
nothing else matter
We always have good times with all 
the talking and laughter
In some ways we are opposite of one 
But we seem to attract just like no 
The feelings I have for you I cannot 
You make me so happy with full of 
joy inside
As time pass on our love will get 
stronger and stronger
Hopefully the time will slow down 
making each day longer and longer

The Wretched Prince

"The Wretched Prince"

You were my hope
And all my dreams,
But all of that has changed,
It seems

Because I treated 
You so bad,
Destroying everything
We had

And if I could
Just turn back time,
I'd claim you and,
I'd make you mine

I'd treat you
Like a Princess fair,
Hold you close,
And stroke your hair

A precious jewel
You would be,
Honored, Treasured,
Loved by me

I'd be your Prince,
Your Hero true,
And nothing
Would I keep from you

But this is not 
A Fairy Tale,
I missed the mark,
I lost the trail

Your "Prince" was just
A wretch, it seems,
Quite capable
Of killing dreams

A Hero?
No, I failed that too,
You got much less
Than you were due
I rack my brain,
I beat my breast,
Realizing that I failed the test

And I know this,
You played no part,
In the reckless murder
Of your heart

We had it all,
We were "that pair"
I ruined that,
It wasn't fair

I promised not 
To play that game,
But in the end,
I hold the blame

You were "the one"
I always said,
Then cruelly left
Our love for dead

Your faith in me
Was rare and just,
I finally ground 
It into dust

I crushed your faith,
And acted small,
And caused a bitter rain
To fall

I hurt you love,
And I regret,
The pain I caused,
You can't forget

And if I could 
Reset the clock,
Erase the pain,
The hurt, the shock

I'd do it now
I swear it's true,
Undo the harm
I did to you

But time moves forward
I am told,
It leaves me sad,
And feeling old

With words too little,
And too late,
I took your love,
And left you hate

These words I offer 
Unto you,
With hope you can 
Believe they're true

You were so strong,
Yet fragile too,
I tore a precious thing
From you

I pray that God
Will soon repair,
The heart
I was so quick to tear

I thank you for
The strength you shared,
The love you gave,
And how you cared

Your courage helped me
To go on,
When all of mine
Was dead and gone

All I left you
Was pain and strife,
And I'll regret that
All my life

Please know your tears
Don't fall alone,
I miss the place 
We once called home

This wretched "prince"
Will hobble on,
No longer part, 
Of your sweet song

A Princess,
I can never claim,
But I will not 
Forget your name,

My honor, blanketed by shame,
But I will not forget your name.

The One Call I Missed

Why did you lie to me?
You said you would call
Still I wait here by the phone
This is not how it's meant to be
I feel like I have been a fool
Are you the one who steals my heart?
You say I am the one for you
One who cares would not treat me this way
As I wait I fall too sleep
In the morn I will not care
I will search for my loved one
Do not call I will thrive on my own
Sad is not the way to be
This is how to write a poem with just one.
It is hard to write this way.

For the One to one contest.

I promised you this

I love the way her quiet hands always seem

to rouse a feeling of intensity deep inside.

How strong the sensation can be when against my body.

I love the how heartening they are

when I feel so misplaced.

And how infantile they feel even though calloused

Greatly through her trying life.

I love the way her eyes gaze at me.

The way they bypass sheepish smiles and timid looks

And see what I really wish for her to see.

I love how a single look ignites a feeling in me that boils

my soul and melts away the layers

like chocolate in the sun.

I love the way her fair lips sneak across her teeth.

The way they coil in to this ideal smile

that always seems to cause the same outcome in me.

I love when she just barely tastes them while she’s thinking and

how they burn when she tenderly places them on my remains.

I admire how they can say so much with out moving

and with a simple flick can entice so much commotion at once.

I love it when I hear thump-thump

and how it propels her passion for this existence. 

I love how no one person gets the same version of her,

and how it always makes every day unique.

I can even love the childish way it makes her mature

which always appears to make her cry.

I love the way I don’t feel good enough for her some times,

but she always tells me Im perfect.

I love how she makes me cry cause it never bittersweet

and always ends in a smile.

I love how angry she makes me and how she just blows it off

in a joke that we both laugh at later.

In the end I promised you this.

Its not done its not perfect but its for you.

Its my heart. Its everything I love about you,

Its my promise to always fall in love with you every day

And love you always.

Young Love

Uncertainty lies
With us being together
Yet claiming promises
Of always and forever

 Old fashion belief
In a love without measure
Steady we shall stay
For always and forever

Numb without one
Starved without the other
So crucial is the keepsake 
Of always and forever

Words will continue
In a ritual blether
Sharing future vows
Of always and forever

But the stars predict
Our relationship be severed
Still we cling to the hope
Of always and forever

Will we follow the sensible
Give into the worlds pressure
And forsake the idea
Of always and forever

Or instead grasp tight
Run away to wherever
Just he and I
For always and forever

Only time will tell

What Girls Always Wanted

Guys think girls are complicated when it comes to relationships & love.
They keep asking that one question, what is it that girls really want?
They feel they don't understand us, well maybe it’s a bit true.
As some don't make the time to learn, while others are without a clue.

Girls are simple creatures and easy to understand
So get your pens n papers out, I'm here to give you a hand.
Don't try to buy her love with material things, but love her from the heart.
Prove to her that she's 'the one' and that you'll never part.

Take her by the hand and show her that you care
Promise her just this one thing, that you'll always be there.
Don't lie to her face, when she already knows the truth.
Don't be afraid to say "I'm sorry”, instead of being uncouth.

She is also independent & so won't always rely on you.
But pledge your love to her - solemn and true.
She doesn't need extravagance; she doesn't need the world.
all she wants is to hold her each day & call her “your girl".

She will get angry and upset 'for no reason' and choose to ignore you
Doesn't mean her love has stopped, instead, it’s being renewed.
Yes sometimes she's unreasonable & doesn't want to admit she's wrong.
But she will love you with all her might because to you her heart belongs.

She may have a lot of friends, and some been mostly guys.
But you will always be the only special guy in her life.
Yes she will go out to have fun but she will never cheat.
As its only with you that she will feel complete.

She’ll lie to you that she's okay, when the tears are rolling down.
Don't ignore her cry for help, when she's pretending to be strong.
All she needs is a comforting hug to take her sadness away.
While you whisper the words "I’m here now everything will be okay".

A simple message or call is needed, just to check up on her at times.
Tell her that you miss her and she makes your life worthwhile.
Don't play her for a fool or shatter her fragile heart.
Don't break all the promises you made to her, at the very start

Watch the sun rise with her and wrap her in your arms.
Kiss her on her forehead and keep her safe from any harm.
Sing to her your favorite songs and dance with her in the rain.
Go for walks on the beach and have picnics with champagne

Treat her with respect, and give her your endless love
And she will treat you like a king and think you were sent from above.
Appreciate her everyday and don’t ever take her for granted.
As that Guys’ is what we Girls have always really wanted.

Cant live with them can t live without them

I got a girl
(She wants more)
Call her from work
(She wants more)
Take her to the mall
(She wants more)
Buy her flowers
(She wants more)
Buy her chocolate
(She wants more)
Give her presents
(She wants more)
Pay her bills
(She wants more)
Take her on a cruise
(She wants more)
Introduce her to my parents
(She wants more)
Put a ring on her finger
(She wants more)
Walk her down the aisle
(She wants more)
Hold her hand
(She wants more)
A kiss on the cheek
(She wants more)
A kiss on the lips
(She wants more)
Run my hands through her hair
(She wants more)
Feel her body next to mine
(She wants more)
Uuuh Aaaah, Uuuh Aaaah
(She wants more)
Cuddle every night
(She wants more)
Girls, girls, girls
Can't live with them
Can't live without them

Carefree and intense,
People who lie. 
Stories of glory;
I sit here and cry. 

Treadmill of anger, 
Rolling beneath me. 
I long for her grace,
Her touch, her healing. 

She is the one, 
The only chosen. 
I lie here waiting,
Wanting and broken.

Memorized Memories

Distantly wandering ~ a meadow-vast lake Refusing to let the consumption of my heart break Icy cold tears frost over my face & cheeks Being lost for weeks and for weeks Broken down ambition ~ too weak to fight Suddenly she appears like an angel in my life Opening the reality of a bond between girls Determined to create a relationship that unfurls Aimlessly waiting for years for her soul And craving the right girl to rock-n-roll Possessing her thoughts, body, and mind I think I found you, baby, this time Exhausted from search and it be nothing but fight Finally found a woman as a possible wife Golden and glowing ~ she inhabits my body With limitless ways to make her happy and naughty Be responsible to care for her ~ now that she's mine It's been an unpleasant search ~ now it is time To live by my side in a big world of us Off the bat we've succeeded our series of trust To hold her naked some days through the night In my head bursting bright sparks of light Kissing her lips and holding her waist Feeling her warmth ~ memorizing her taste Protection from the unworthy who will try and take my place So many memories to create ~ not a second to waste

Beautiful Rhyme

Behold! The beauty of a Beholder! Sheltered from this world by a boulder I'm tickled & pink to be her first and last Sexiest girl in the world; smart, honest, and with class Beautiful body and beautiful mind My beautiful rhythm to my beautiful rhyme Steady racing pace to my beating heart She's finally here now ~ I don't ever want to be apart Sinister ending to my seductive life Finally I found her ~ my beautiful wife Touching & tender my fingertips across her skin Finally I found my Halo ~ I finally win! Our bodies lying naked and intertwined The places my fingers across your body find The tiny curves that make up your angelic form Are bubbling and creating inside of me a storm A storm of Queen and the ways you need Let me open your lungs and finally allow you to breathe

She Called Me Darling

She called me darling
And I felt my feet grow roots
While the ground swelled to meet me

She called me darling
As the wind combed the briers in my hair
And strange squirrels anointed me with nests

She called me darling
And the sun painted my cheeks rouge
While the sea spilled from my eyes

She called me darling
As my heart thundered in the distant sky
And the earth shook from its efforts

She called me darling
And a balloon in my chest swelled
Bursting forth with barely contained joy

Freeish Verse.
Just a little sweet poem to try and overcome my writer's block.

Lyrically Spun

Beautifully woven ~ magically spun Carefully wondering about the years to come Awakened fury rises inside my soul of pride Driven ambitiously by this girls' ride Seeking in deepened abyss of my heart Finally found a woman who's smart Educated & classy ~ this angel drops into my life To pick up these jigsawed pieces inside me that crave a wife To be the gentle side of me when I am rough To be there with me ~ broken and lonely when life gets too tough To make me see the tender pieces of a woman (The difference from just taking her to the can) The sensitive side of her body I shall cherish Something that started simply from a wish The seductive spell of a body exactly like mine Same sex with this woman ~ finally time

Every morning I wake and gaze my lover in her face
Her eyes are close so tight
I wonder who she is dreaming of
Maybe in her sleep is the only place she forgives me.

In a bit, she will awake
Walking towards the shower
Her fresh smile in the morning is fake
I can smell her odor,  like a flower.

How could I do this to you?
I know you are hurting everyday
With all the things I did to you
Thank you for not walking away.

Seeing as you get dressed in front of me
With a body so nice leaving me aroused
Afraid of you going your own way
Every time I see you leave with an open blouse

The harder I try to make it better
You gain authority  over me
Holding you near in the cold weather
You push me away when you remember

You are the best thing that ever happens to me 
How could I be so dumb with my stupidity

May be one day you will forgive 
Without you I realize I cannot live
My days go by me very slow
The love for me, you no longer show

Lying by your side where you rest
You turn away before I turn off the light
I want to touch you with a nice soft caress
You say you are tired just about every night
I kiss your neck to see if you respond 
You give me the cold shoulder as if we just had a fight
I touch your curves with my fingertips
Still, you do not give into my lips.

I beg you please do not make me wither away
You say you have nothing to say
Regretting what I did everyday

I am still deeply in love with you,
Without you I do not know what to do!!!

Bond of Love

Love shall be the easiest word; to say.
Though deeper than any words do go,
Harder in ways that anyone may show.
True love so much more such anyway.
Shall wipe out any form of dismay,
 If veracity of heart is graciously slow.
When mixed with eyes that seem to glow.
Tenderness rewarding, true loves array.

More than any act, that enriches pleasure.
Flows from, enacted verses; unspoken,
Spirited rapture, with hormonal divide,
From the soul; pure golden treasure,
Enriches feelings beyond any token,
Heavenly bond ensues; when two coincide.

First Love

First Love

Her eyes showed me a way,
Her unique smile let my tears go away,
Her Beautiful face made me to say,
Is this Love, or what???

Started to have feeling of love,
Started to behave nicely and different,
Started to smile when there was no reason to smile,
Still, Is this Love, or what??

Tried to approach her, but felt belittled, lowly, shy,
Tried to ask her for date, but felt afraid, scared, shocked,
Tried to express my love, felt would be rejected, hurt, unheard,
Well still, Is this love, or what?

I can fix anything, why not this thing,
I can talk to any girl, why not this girl,
I can really convince anyone, why not this one,
Came before many girl, why not this girl.

Do please not tell me its just nothing,
Do tell me how to do something about this thing...Love,
Do tell me anything about this thing…Love,
Will there be rejection or appreciation??????????

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Put a bullet in my brain

Put a bullet in my brain
as the rain sweeps her out of my arms
and places her into another's.
Put a bullet in my brain
for I don't want to see love slip away
please end my suffering,
for I don't want to dare see her in the arms of another man.

I fear the tear that slips away from my soul
and touches the ground with a splash
as she is washed away by the lashed memories of the rain,
please, someone put a bullet in my brain.

I can't bear to see her with another man
laying in his arms
as he charishes her beauty
just like I did to her.
As she smiles and laughs at his jokes
my heart would not bare the sorrow and pain
that would tare my heart apart into pieces of tainted love.
Please tell the rain to stop,
as the pain grows when rain comes down,
please someone end my suffering,
put a bullet in my brain
and stop the rain
that washes away every memory of her.

Stop saying you miss me
and just kiss me
for I can't take the pain
of the rain that takes you away.
Kiss me and stop saying you miss me
for those are useless words to me.
Love is where it's at, so show me.
Don't go with him, he'll treat you wrong.
Love and laugh with me till the break of dawn
as we yawn the long night away.

Kiss me and don't say you miss me.
For if you go away from me,
I couldn't bare to take a tear and waste it away.
Tears, sweet tears crying for you,
doesn't that mean anything to you?
I ask you, stop the rain,
stop the pain and put that bullet in my brain.

Let the red blood flow from my temples.
Let the plow dig my grave,
for I can't bare to see you with another
in his arms, him kissing you, where I kissed you.
I can't take it, I have to make it,
make that pain go away.
Prayer didn't help, God turned a blind eye
when I came up and said why!
Put that bullet in my dome
and when I lay in the coffin, looking at the roof of the church
you come and kiss me, and then you can really say
that you'll miss me.

Monkey See

Monkey See~

There once was a monkey named Frank
Who loved to walk the plank
He said too many jokes
Pulled too many hoaxe-s 
Ha! Ha! Ha! Then he got a good spank


Who's that monkey in front of me
I dare to hang with you on a tree
Oh! What I do? Will you do?
Together we are like glue
Is that my flea or your flea?

Dreams Of Reality

Dreams Of Reality
By Nate Spears
Published 2013 in “Death OF A Rose” By Nate Spears

A difference of a world a way
A distance of a different kind
Love is blind and divine
Hold my hand
Let us touch the sunshine
On this hill of heaven we stand 
I pray

From one another 
Life and the world will never take us
Unless it’s together
Then we will become forever
Never leaving each others presence
Our bond becomes stronger in living
With every day
I stare into your glare
Wishing we live on; and long 
Strong and healthy 
We will grow old
In a happy union together
Looking beside me
Coming to a reality
You’re not there
My dreams are not reality 
My love has perished.

The Right Thing to Do

Written 7 March 2014

Bruce and Jennie, both were 10,
Had been playmates all their lives.
One day, Bruce proclaimed,
“Jennie… most good men have wives.”

He professed his love for her.
Jennie said she loved him too.
They decided that getting married
Was ‘the right thing’  to do.

So, Bruce went to speak to her father,
Who was doing yard work at the time.
“May I speak to you, Mr. Johnson?”
“Sure, Bruce. What’s on your mind?”

“Sir, I love your Jennie;
And Jennie, she loves me;
But we need your permission
To be married… to be “We.”

Impressed by Bruce’s courage,
He knew this confrontation must be tough.
He smiled and asked, “Bruce, are you sure
You love my daughter enough?”

Bruce’s face became stern, he said,
“Mr. Johnson, let me tell you…
I love Jennie so much…and she loves me.
We’re both sure it’s the right thing to do.”

He was moved by Bruce’s ardor,
But permission was not his to give.
So, quick as flash, he responded,
“But Bruce…where will you live?” 

“Sir, I measured her room;
Then I measured mine.
Hers is 40 percent bigger.
We’ll live there.  We’ll be fine.

If we have extra stuff,
We’ll keep that in my room.
We’ll keep our places neat and tidy.
You won’t even need a broom.

And both our parents can save money 
On babysitters too.
Even if you do things on the same night,
You’ll only need one sitter, not two.”

Mr. Johnson was impressed with his logic,
But this marriage idea was no longer funny.
He smiled and said, “That’s good thinking, Bruce;
But what are you gonna do for money?

“Why, Mr. Johnson, I get twelve-fifty a week allowance;
And let me remind you, Jennie also gets ten.
Throw in our birthdays and Christmas cash….
Why, we might even have money to lend.”

Desperate now, he thought, 
“Next, I guess they’ll want a car.”
Then he asked, “But Bruce, what if you have kids?”
"Aawww," blushed Bruce... “We’ve been lucky so far.”

Tease for Two

Silly isn't it

It's silly isn't it?
That I could fall for you so easily
And you not give two shits?
You spoke your drunken words
And admitted to always loving me
It was the best thing I had ever heard. 
When we hung out soon after
And I left you with a kiss
I didn't think the feelings mattered.
But as we spent time apart
I realized it wasn't the same
You had won my heart.
I got drunk and spilled my words
And you said you still felt the same
I was happier than a bird.
We made plan after plan
You always fell through
I felt like a speck of sand.
You told me you were trying to get a girl
I smiled and bared the tears
I had hoped to be the girl.
You soon stopped replying
I started to break down
I was almost done trying.
But no not tonight
I got drunk and spilt more words
I hope I did what's right. 
I thought we were the perfect fit
I fell for you so hard
But, that's silly, isn't it?

Gypsy King

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.

A seed of love planted in the soil of my heart

I sailed unaware into 
the ocean currents 
of her life:

smitten, I 
desired to ride 

them with her;
the ocean ways, a 

seed of love 

planted in the soil of
my heart had taken root 
and grew--only to perish 

a young hope 

that's fleeting:
though I loved her, 

still wounded

like a careless 

In spite of 
this and myself, 
I looked 

for encouragement
in her stare; 

at the outlines 
of her graceful 

I did wonder: 
she was 


a Helen of Troy, a prize, 
on whose loveliness 

so richly gorged! 

But never was 
a lonely man 
more wretched 

I was, 

as she could 
not return my

with equal measure of feeling.  

I would be more
glad had she been 
unwedded to another,

could easily be within 
my desirous 


In time, I 

her again;

and love, or the 
appearance of it--like 
an aborted 


flushed down the 

with her parting 
as well!

For Always

Every moment I can't see your face;
These are the days and nights when I miss you.
I ask that you stay for always,
On sunny days and when it rains too.

If I speak to another pretty dame,
She's not the flame inside that grows.
In my heart you will remain;
This one thing I'd like you to know.

I was just trying to remember the past
 trying to remember the good people
 and the bad people,
 that i came across on my way,

i want you to know
that you are among the good people
 that left a good trace in my life,

once again i just want to say thank you
for passing through my life,
is so short but is wonderful
i want you here forever.

The Beach of Promises

The Beach of Promises


Fingers entwined, barely touching,
turquoise waters teasing your dancing toes,

strolling along that serene deserted beach,
our promised dreams within aching reach.


Hands clasped, holding on,
sea-breezes tickling the nape of your neck,

walking together, alone, vowing to never breach,
the dreams dreamed on that faraway velvet beach.


Hands in my pockets, alone,
traces of you linger, teasing,

lost in my scribbles, your memory fading out of reach,

my thoughts ablaze, now and then,
catching a whiff of your fragrance,

wafting through alleyways of nostalgia,
your hand in mine on our pristine beach.

To One I Love

behind the veil
still waiting to be seen
glimpses of beauty reserved for
one ... me

This poem is dedicated to a very special lady who was reentered my life.  Thank you for allowing me to see all your beauty again.

Brown Eyes

Brown eyes that matched her hair
Sad and unhappy as she stood there
Waiting for her love to return, maybe yes
maybe never, only time will tell
Such sad brown eyes that matched her hair
Tied from behind in the most romantic way
Head slightly tilted gazing down in despair
Looking, but not looking staring into space
Memories, dancing inside her head
As she spoke silently “He promised to return” 
Talking to herself said… “I had to believe
What am I to do this is just my grief”
Time is just a lie man invented it to be wise
When two lovers are together
It doesn’t need Einstein.
He gave such a wonderful love
Love only known to a lonely heart
For what is life if not with him, I prefer to die.
Fool I am to think he will return
He’s been gone so long maybe minutes
maybe days.

Treasure of My Heart

Yamaha impressed me the first time I laid eyes on her glistening blond maple wood, her stylish body details, her long fretted mother-of-pearl inlay; lobed with golden keys. Her voice called to me the first time I held her in my arms. I strummed her six strings slowly in the key of G, then moved softly to D and C. All the while, I searched earnestly for her purity in sound quality and style. She was not the most beautiful in the showroom. But oh yes! She did flatter me with her musical presence. She was beautiful to me! I knew from that moment on she would be mine for eternity. 

Within the hour, I took her home to meet the family. She was shy on the journey, not making a sound; perhaps due to this being her first automobile ride or simply wanting to see a world she was now a part of. Yamaha was cased in alligator leather, a brown dressing which was stylish for the day. We were both nervous as we arrived and got out of the car. My strong caressing grip on her handle assured her she wouldn’t fall and it would be alright. She knew it would be alright as I smiled at her. 

I opened the door, allowing her to enter first. When in the living room, I called to everyone to come meet the newest member of the family. Dad was taken by her simple yet elegant beauty and style. Mom touched her first and she was most pleased. At that moment I realized the importance of first impressions as Mom marveled at how pretty she was. I sat down in the best chair in the living room while Mom listed to Yamaha talk and I sang a popular country love song.  I was pleased with the family acquaintance to Yamaha. It was evident she had become a part of the family.

 The first few weeks, I couldn’t keep Yamaha out of my arms. I longed to be with her every minute of the day. In my eye, she made me smile by just gazing upon her. I fumbled with her in those beginning days. She ignored my elementary attempts at refinery and permitted me the time to catch up to her mastery rather than bow down to my level. Like any two lovers, both must reach to the need of the other. Only then is love truly in harmony. 

Today, Yamaha is not the young glistening blond I held in my arms some thirty years removed. Her wood has been scared by my love to play her. She has received countless face lifts which cover her tainted mother-of-pearl. Her brown leather case dress stands in need of a seamstress care. But as with all things having been learned through love, we now make beautiful music together. She is my treasure, a light into my soul's well. She amplifies my inner being. As I perform, she is glorified. We have grown old together,and gotten better in time. I still hold her in my arms day by day as this lover has risen to her grace and expectations. She is my treasure for a life time.

Twilight Lovers

Lovers whispering in the softness of the night.
Two entwined hearts, 
misted in sweet promises.

Floating together in the warmth of love.
Embracing the other's soul, 
desiring each others hearts.
Lips touching, 
adding heat to the swirling mist around them.
Delicious heat only lovers can know.

The hot flames of lust, 
igniting their bodies, 
inflaming their hearts.
Passion carries them through the night.
Destined for all the tomorrows on the twilight together.

My Persian Queen

From the Gardens of Babylon,
to the walkways of Palestina,
to the grand temples of Jerusalism,
to the sandy beaches of Syria and Cyprus.
Went my Persian Queen riding,
upon her golden, firery chariot.

Her black hair, like silk long and flowing.
Her royal robes white and purple, bare and pure.
Her sword by her side, ready to strike.
Her spear fastened, ready to stab the dreeded heart
of the Fire Dragon.
On the firery chariot, riding with her armies,
Went my Perisan Queen.

O, how my arimes fight your armies,
in the midst of night fall, under a full moon.
Let us stop this foolish fighting.
And have fellow brother, love fellow brother.
And so we can fall in love forever.

And don't act like you don't show love for me.
I see you in the dawns, standing upon the sand covered battlefields.
Standing proud behind your armies.
With your black hair flowing.
You almost making me want not to fight the battle of the Day,
for if you were killed, what victory would that be then?

You pull your armies back at the last minute, before I am slayed
by your fellow brother in arms.
You retreat your arimes back over the hills, not in fear of losing the day,
but in fear of losing me.
You and your armies had plenty of chances to kill me, yet you do not.

My Persian Queen, O come now.
Come down from your firery chariot
and into my restless arms.
I know you are tired
and wanting to sleep.

Listen to the nightingale
sing her love song.
Drinking the sweet necture,
from the gardens, in your vase Persian Empire.

Come now, and kiss me,
Hold me, let us ride,
far from the simple minds of the Old World
and fall in love in a New.

My Persian Queen
O how I love you so much.
I cannot bare to see you in a life you don't want to live.
Come let I, your Knight in shinning armour liberate you.
Take you by the hand, run through the great bazzare in Old Istanbul
running away from the Janissaries of your father's Imperial armies.

Let us leave this place of hate and sorrow.
To start our lives a new.
My Persian Queen,
Now dressed in silk lace,
with golden jewlery hanging
from your beautiful and tender neck.
Along with the silver pattened belt around your harmonial waist.

It is time for you, to come with me.
No more shall we act like we dispise one another.
As Romeo and Juliet's love failed,
shall our love take course, and we shall love
till the oceans swallow the earth, the mountains crumble,
and the Sun engulf the sweet Earth.
And on and on shall our love go on,
My adorable and lovely Persian Queen.

They ran laughing
Into the night.
Hand in hand.
Heart in heart.

Twenty-One, and Nineteen.
Forging new pathways,
Skirting danger,
Laughing at the wind.

It took only 
A second,
A heartbeat,
For the driver
To mow them down.

It took only
A second,
A lifetime
For love realized
to be lost.

But years before
He stood next to his father
Who said the choice is yours.

And the proud young man
Checked the box
And signed his name

Not knowing
That the heart
He gave the girl
Would not be
His to give.

Seven hours
Of waiting,

Seven hours
Of holding breaths
And hands,
And the heart
Began to beat

I call it a blessing from above
And I know everyone wants this to have
Everyone is looking for it
But only few can found it

I'm lucky I'm one of that few
And I've been blessed to found true love in you
It's like a dream came true
To be loved by the guy I loved too

To you,I felt the undefined happiness
For me,for all the guys you are the best!
And I want you to stay for the rest of my life
Coz' I really need someone like you in my life

I consider you as a blessing sweetheart
So I give to you my sincere HEART
I love you forever
And I hope that God will guide us to be together..forever

Beautiful Redhead aka: Irish Princess

 Dating a beautiful redhead girl will be the greatest moment of my life. She’s like an Irish princess, even better. Her hair is so red, it’s as if she’s on fire. Her beautiful eyes are like a pair of emerald gems when I look at them. And her pale skin is as beautiful as pure, white snow. It seems to me that all attractive redheads are amazing, and most of all, they’re down to Earth. This redhead is also like a beautiful, Irish Princess, even from the Emerald Isle (Ireland). I never dated an attractive redheaded girl before, but it’s about time that I did. Plus, there are other beautiful redheads who are famous, like Kay and Danielle Panabaker, Emma Stone, Hayley Williams, Lindsay Lohan, Lily Cole, and others. Not to mention Julienne Moore, even though she’s happily married. I wouldn’t mind dating a beautiful redhead, but she has to be from the U.S. or Ireland. She’s like that redheaded warrior from Brave. She’ll be my Irish Princess one day (Irish girlfriend), and I’ll be her American prince (American beau). I say, if I were to get into a serious relationship with this attractive redhead, I won’t break her heart; I’d also be honest and truthful to her. I know that female redheads are sensitive and I also know that she doesn’t want to be brokenhearted. All I know is that if I fall in love with a redhead girl and I become infatuated with her, there’s just no telling.

My Love

My love I can not find you anywhere, 
I feel like I lost my soul somewhere, 
because you are my soulmate, 
and us being apart can not be fate. 

You did not leave because you wanted to, 
It just was just something you had to do. 

I was not right, All I wanted to do was fight, 
and knowing you was the love of my life, 
yet I would not make you my wife. 

I know that's what you really wanted 
and now I am feeling haunted, 
by the things I should have done, 
and you being the only one 
I ever loved and will love forever, if it was'nt for me we will still be together. 
But you are gone 
and I can not go on, 
so I must say good-bye, I'm leaving myself to die.

When we were young

We run when it rains

We lie on the ground

And stare at those stars

You said its 5000 stars up there

And I was eight

And believe you of course

You were nine that time

Two years after that I asked you

I say

"How did you know"

Then you said 

"know what"?

About the stars, 

"I count it", she said

"I dont believe you", I said

Then you say:

"I dont care, you want some ice cream"

Then we both walk towards your place

It was cold that time

And your father was on the terrace

Smoking his half lighted cigarette

And said  hi to him

He said hello

Vanilla that was the ice cream

You manage to stretch your hand

And made a loud sigh when you at last

had a grip on the ice cream

I remember sitting

While watching you preparing

A two scoop of ice cream for me

And just one for you

"We need to be equal" , I said

"Whats the point?", she said

"Nothing, its not fair for you", I said

"It is fair, because Im on a diet

I want to be a model someday.

And you need to eat more

Cause your going to be 

my bodyguard" she said

The Woman and the Fisherman

There was a young woman living by the sea.
Her house was on the shore owned by her family.
The house of a fisherman that was tall and slender,
Was built on an island opposite to hers.

It was a starry night when they met.
Fisherman was on water preying fishes with net.
He saw a woman drowning in the sea,
She was caught by his baits accidentally.

The fisherman came to save her;
Brought her home and offered food and water.
Under the moon,they laughed and talked,
Footprints marked the sand as they walked.

The moonlight flashed in both eyes,
Hidden feelings suddenly arise.
Hearts were pierced by Cupid's dart
Filled the place with love and art.

Came the sun rise and ended their night,
Woman needs to go home and leave his sight.
Poor young fisherman can’t defy;
Hugged her and kissed goodbye.

Days have passed but memories still in mind.
On the balcony she sits, staring on the opposite side.
So she went to the opposite island to see him,
But found fisherman and his wife and child with him.

The woman stepped back and went to the shore;
She drowned herself for life’s not good anymore,
But someone stopped her and grabbed her.
It was fisherman who gladly said “You came back” and pulled her out of the water.

Out spoke the woman, --”You’re now married, so let me die!”
“What? I’m not married, you’re telling a lie!”
“I went to your house and saw you with your wife and child!”
“That’s my twin brother”, the fisherman smiled.

Now, it’s the fisherman and the woman living by the sea,
In an island where they both dwell happily.
With the moon above, they exchanged their vows so quiet,
On a lovely night where the stars are bright.

I want to say Something

Something is in my heart
I want to say it
Words can't support me
How can I say it?

I want to know,
If you can bear it

Why can't I say it?

I am delighted,
If you want to hear it?

No, no, or never
Why can't I say it?

girl with the diamond eyes

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 

but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes

this girl is more beautiful than anything
she is my perfect vision of life
she means everything to me

shes my angel and my dream
but at times she can be 
the devil to me

we are crazy in desire
we fit together well 
shes crazy 
and im crazy for her

shes bad 
and ill be bad for her

my girl
has a strange effect on me

shes more sweet than honey
but be warned this queen bee can sting
she can be bitter at times 

but i dont mind cause
shes all mine 
shes my only dream
and she can be like a angel to me

there are always times when diamonds 
loose their shine but since the day i made her mine
that shine has never left
her beautiful eyes

shes my girl
the girl with the diamond eyes

yea my girl
with the diamond eyes

she makes me feel crazy
but i dont mine as long as i can call
that girl with the diamond eyes mine

i pray they always shine

Indefinite Love

I saw a young lady who was so perfect that she made my heart beat
I could not figure it out and now I really don't know I had to take a seat
She smiled like an angel in the heavens with glorious blinding teeth
She seems so kind and full of life and never put people beneath
I do not have a bad thought or a moment without any ease
I notice that because she pulled me up and smiled with a tease
She kept things close to her like my hand and my heart
She knew that I was just the man that gave her a good start
I never had a thought of leaving because of a fight
I will never part with her because she is my sight
She looks forward at all times and never looks back
She knows how I am if some one would hurt her I would attack
I will never leave her side with out her knowing she is safe and sound
I am the man of her dreams I will never let her down hard on any ground
She loves me with all her heart and I know this because she gives me the look
She knew how long I waited for her to notice me, I remember it was long time it took
I waited by her side when she was ill and could not walk 
I held her hand and made her smile when I told her I love her, when I talk
She noticed it in my voice the feelings with care
She never looked at me in a blank stare

I Truly Do Love You

I will love you in every way.
I will always love you in some way.

I will love you everyday.
I will always love you no matter what others say.

I will love you until you feel okay.
I will always love you no matter what you say.

I will love you throughout any day.
I will always love you until my dying day.

A Flower's Funeral

A sweet flower's funeral
displayed in the cold months
of snowy weather and bone chilling shivers.
A sweet flower burned away, dried up;
buried six feet under.

Oh, my sweet flower,
how you once bloomed with no remorse,
like a madman blooming with beauty
and a glorious halo over your head
shinned with such power and blinding glory.

Oh my sweet flower how you have gone now,
resting in peace in the land of paradise.
Oh, my heart it is weak when I see your face,
of once beautiful smiles and warm embraces.
I can hear your crying out to be free.

Snowing and bone chilling cold ripes at my soul
and feelings of sorrow rage through my blood,
boiling my hatred to the world, for losing your
sweet and ever glorious beauty.

What I would give away, if I could be with you
one last night, one last night together
to hold you in my arms, to smell your sweet perfume
that brings back sweet memories of you and I.
What I would do to be with you,
such romance travels through my heart in the highways
of my veins in my body, love is all throughout me,
and my heart breaks when pictures of you start to collect dust.

My love for you, my sweet flower,
is still ingering through the air,
as I travel and look upon a tombstone
which shows your beautiful name.

Come to me my dear flower,
when spring comes,
come to me my dear, sweet flower.
And bloom once again,
twice as large as last year,
and ten times more beautiful then last year.
Come to me in the first months of spring
in my dreams, so I could sit and talk with you.
I miss you already,
and my heart crys,
my eyes flood with tears of sorrow.
I miss our love we shared.
Long walks,
cosy talks,
warm cuddling embraces
and beautiful displayed in a picture frame.
Now I hear the tapping of raindrops on my window pane.
That is all that keeps me company,
that and the rose you gave to me
and a picture of you and me.
Love is endless, even when blue eyed Death comes to visit
and play a game of chess with us,
we all play our game, my love.
I shall go tonight
in my sleepy slumber
and dream of you in the times of our height in our love for each other.
My lost love, you are gone, resting in paradise,
but never forgotten my sweet flower.

Am missing you though you are by my side
You are here but not here as I can’t feel your presence
I told myself you were right for me but I feel lonely in your company
I see your face disappearing from the reach of my sight
Hope you are not leaving; your goodbye will be the worst of farewell.

Mercy does not begin where love come to an end
Heard mercy prolongs love and makes it even more beautiful
It was happy beginning about turning to a saddy end
Look harder baby and see that different part of me
Don’t give me that look; it will break my heart if you say goodbye.

So weighed down not only by uncertainties but also by obsession
I made my entire dream yours & you looked at me and made it shatter
It is so hard to realize that what we have, we don’t have anymore
Am the soldier of your heart; am so ready to go to war for your heart
Hope not loose you to my enemies; hope am not hearing goodbye?

Don’t try walking away from my side baby
If I loose you now, everything will be gone may be
The thought of you leaving me has left me creeping in fear
I don’t want to wake up in the morning and not see you my dear
If you ever leave me at night; it will be the worst of all badbyes.

Now; if you like leave am no longer scared
It will be hard but whatever happens am prepared
I no longer care if we stay forever or remain forever apart
To someone else special; I will find and give my special heart
Oh! She said goodbye; it was the happiest of all goodbyes.

You Alone

Look at you, you have found my heart
With love I stare into your eyes
With passion I devise
I can not part with you or can not stop the things I have started

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I walk by your side and I found my self crying
With your hands so soft with gentleness
With your smile so beautiful with carefulness
I do notice life with you without sighing

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Without a fear of losing you, you are in my visions
With beautiful roses by your side 
I love you more than twelve times
Without doubt I do love you, I care for you and you alone

So do not walk away 
Please lets talk about things anyway
With feelings of letting you go is make me ache in the heart
Do not stop believing my passion has fallen apart

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

Look I want us to grow old with each other through years of journeys
With hope of sharing life of fulfillment that gives us memories
With this I hope to give all of my faith and I hope it is not to late
I Look into your eyes with such full life because you have been my life date

So I raise my hands to embrace you and you alone

And you alone

So I raise my hands to embrace you

you alone

Do You Remember

Was it really as you remember?
Was it as sweet as you recall?
What was the other’s name?
Do you remember them at all?

Do you remember where you were,
The season or the time of day?
Do you remember how it made you feel
And what next you had to say?

Had you practiced on your hand?
Did you do it right or almost miss?
How often do you think of it…

Your very first Hollywood kiss?

A small romantic rain poem dedicated to hubby.
wrote by Mrs.Madhavi.Suyog.Pagare

"Ohhhh Rain..Shower again!!!!! "  

Showering in the rain, 
Draining the pain!
Enflueraging the essence of arenicolous sand,
Feeling blessed porting on this beautiful greenary land! Trees were roaming 
under fiercing winds,
Thanks nature for benevolently so kind!
Sip of sizzling coffee With Caramalized sugar,
Cheers hubby to accompany me my gelling agar!
Wanna capture this Driplets of aromatic water nearby lake,
So that I can make an icy snowflake!
That's amazing, "but ohhhh God,  I wish my honey is here".

When I grow old

I will grow old
I tremble in the cold
None to care
I have nothing to fear...

But my love is alive
Though I strive
Beautiful roses to pluck
Yet I am stuck..

I grow old with wrinkle
Yet I will kinker
You will always remain in my mind
This is how you will find...

These Words To You

A warm tear in my eye
As I just wonder why
Why you had to leave me, fly away far
Now for you, alone, I wish to our star

There's so many love songs
I'll play them all, and think of you
I loved everything you were
Loved everything you do

Rise and shine on another day, with you away
All alone I am now, with nothing much to say
Your face is always in my mind
As I dream of the best I'll ever find

These Words To You, my love
I'll write them in a letter
And seal it with a kiss
In hopes that I'll feel better
To the one I miss

Girls that don't ask for much
Oh how they deserve it all
And as this love was such
She's leading to my fall

Her big beautiful eyes
A bold and loving brown
Still makes my heart fly
But still makes my lips frown

And that dirty golden hair
Always tied neatly back
So smooth and curly and long
Got my heart out of whack

These Words To You, my love
I'll write them in a letter
And seal it with a kiss
In hopes that I'll feel better
To the one I miss

1.	The first time I met you I was instantly impressed with your ever growing afro. I noticed that you looked at my eyes when you spoke to me instead of staring six inches south of there at my ever growing blueberries. I guess humans are alike in that aspect, always growing in some way or another.
2.	You seemed shy at first, slightly flirtatious but I tried to ignore it. Well actually I tried to flirt back. Maybe you didn’t notice or maybe you just never caught the hints that I dropped every once and a while. I had just gotten out of a relationship. I was scared and nervous to take interest in anyone because I’ve always been afraid of opening up. But you were different, quite different. Maybe it was the way you sat and drew so quietly in English class. You were so concentrated and connected to your work. If God were to have walked into the room I highly doubt you would have looked up. 
3.	When I first met you I said to myself, “I am going to know him.” And for once in my life I actually followed through with something. I know you now and it is a wonderful feeling. 
4.	When I first kissed you my stomach came to life, not with butterflies but with eagles and owls and they were dancing. And I can remember that night after dinner when there was music playing outside through speakers. You angled your neck downward in order to kiss me. I whispered in your ear if you would dance with me. And we danced slowly to a fast paced song, but it was still so beautiful because whenever I’m in your arms I feel as though I am finally protected from all the madness in the world.

Moon Landing

When I first saw you
That night I was running
You blasted me away
Onto the moon landing

90 degrees out in the desert
 (we were in the park) 
Cupid shot the arrow right through my heart
 (Light shown through the dark) 
Orion’s belt started glistening
As you took me on a trip to the moon, the moon landing

When I first saw you
That night I was running
You blasted me away
Onto the moon landing

You took my breath away
Just as they say
The puppy came out of me
And I just had to see…
The moon landing
The moon landing
The moon landing

I'm Not Angry

I'm not angry because we broke up,
I'm sad because I can't let you go..
I'm not angry at you for not loving me,..
I'm angry with me for still loving you..
I'm not angry that I lost you,..
I'm sad because I once had you..
I'm not angry that I can't have you,
I'm sad because I know what I'm missing..
I'm not angry that you've moved on,
I'm sad because I can't..
I'm not angry that you won't come back,
I'm sad because I keep hoping you will..
I'm not angry because I hate you and don't want to,..
I'm sad because I miss you and I love you...??

It's not that fun hanging out at a country fair.. Alone!
Rides aren't nearly as thrilling when you aren't 
Sharing space with someone special.  I was supposed 
To be here with her.  But she broke up with me three
Night ago.  Well, I was about to leave when I came
Upon a booth offering magic beans.  A masked 
Maiden explained that the magic beans would 
Grant any wish within an hour or i could return at that
Time and be refunded my dollar.  I had nothing to 
Lose so I took her up on the deal.  A dropped my dollar 
And swallowed the supposed magic beans.  I knew
They weren't magic, but I was desperate.  My wish
Was to have my girlfriend back.  I knew this was a 
Carnival trick, knowing most people wouldn't return
In an hour to get their dollar back.  I rode a few more
Rides and actually looked around to see if I could
Spot my Ex.  Of course I didn't and the booth was on
The way out so I dropped back by to get my refund.
The girl said its only been 58 minutes you'll have to
Wait.  I said, "Come on, my wish is never going to 
Come true."Just then she lowered her mask.  It was my 
Ex.. She was smiling and said, "I guess I'll take you back!"
Then she said, "And I'm keeping your dollar". We still
Have that dollar today.  Framed in our bedroom ;)

His Girl

With his wisdom and my charisma, we shoot strong magnetism.
To be his girl is simply magnetic phenomena.
His love is instrumental loving me without words, reassurances me that I can be his girl.
I do not need to travel the world; I already know that he is the one I am looking for.
Interventions of my heart and his mind, is a love affair that is one of a kind.
My felicity I draw off his mentality.
His pleasing quality makes me love his intellectual capabilities.
I am guilty committing felonies strictly on fidelity, showing nothing but loyalty.
Everlasting fiery no other man can come near me, my flame burns internally literally.
Influence by his charm, as if I was a vampire feeding off his blood.
To be his girl is a translation of my version of his love.
In a state of adaptation I am in compliance, we form an alliance.
Merging our personalities turns me to an unstoppable we.
To be his girl I turn into every woman in the world.
The best of both worlds the collaboration of boy meets girl.
Abundance in his talent possessing riches, loving me wealthy never turning to bankruptcy.
I am definitely making history on the day he marries me.

Goodnight my Fair Maiden

Goodnight my Fair Maiden,
I shall see you once again.
In the year of our Lord,
At the gloomy dawn of Mankind.
As the Red Sun reaches over the treeline,
Far in the East.
I shall see you again.

Don't fear our love,
For my love for you is eternal.
Too see this eternal love
I have for you,
It is hard to feel and very diffcult to see.

When you wake the next morning
and escape your long night of slumber
and your surrealist life,
being played in a cloud of imagination.
You'll soon come to reality 
and find me there.
Knocking upon your chamber door.

Come now!
Get dressed in your evening, silk dress.
and let us go dance under the stars,
till the moon falls to the West and the Sun rises in the East.
Oh, how you are a lovely dancer and how the twilight shines bright
along you shinny and silk laced hair.

And your hair my sweet and fair maiden,
oh, how I love to see it bounce with life
when you twirl and dance into my arms.

You are beautiful and I wish I couldn't leave you,
but as the day turns to night, I have to leave.
I wish I could take you on a long walk through the parks
and courtyards, and walk along the sprinkled streets of the cities filled with life.
Pick you a beautiful bouquet of roses from the gardens of beauty and give them to you
with surprise.

I love you so much
My love for you is indeed hard to tell to you,
but I can show you.
Tomorrow though, for tonight I must say...
Goodnight my Fair Maiden.
For tomorrow you'll be in my arms once again.

Goodnight my Fair Maiden
I shall leave you with a kiss that shall last a lifetime.

Two Hearts full of Love

I am a heart full of love
that shook the pilars that held her colussium up
her heart filled with sorrow,
I swing such fury toward her heart and soul
she cowards away from me,
in fear of falling in love and not knowing what is in black
and not searching what is in the light of pure white.

I am a heart full of love,
she runs and takes the long dirt road,
through the raging mountains of the quiet countryside,
as the meadows of lilacs slowly die when Spring comes,
the blooming of the rose,
like the blooming of my heart,
a blossom on a cherry tree fall and harbour in the wintertime.
I swing toward her, she falls in fear of wanting attention and love.
Lost in the midnight twilight,
the flaming torch guides her through the dark holes of meaningless souls.
and like a frightened hummingbird,
she flees away from the secrets of falling in love.

A heart full of love ready to love,
it is diffcult to feel and to show,
but as if a rose that blooms in Springtime
my love is ready to bloom.

Pettles lay along a darkened atmosphere
lit up only with four wax candles
a portrait of a woman hung over a mantel piece
in honour of my one true love.

As the twilight shine though my bedroom window,
I show a heart full of love,
to take and to hold for eternity.

And as she slowly moves forward,
she takes me home with her,
and opens her chest and shows me her heart
with a glass of red wine and charming cigarette.
She sheads tears of pain and sorrow on my broud shoulder,
I curise her hair, silk laced hair,
shining against the twilight and the moonlit sky.

My heart full of love,
so divine, so original
a one of a kind.

We make love in the midst of the twilight,
as my dream girl is now reality and my pain is no more,
her pain is no more.
Too show such love makes a man feel free
and his soul lighter.
She holds him there,
as the sun rises over the mountains.
The birds sing a tune of cheerfulness,
and they talk about everything beautiful and kind,
that is still left in this cruel and empty hearted world.

Romance and love shared
with a heart full of love,
smile and kiss upon smooth lips,
feel me against your tight body,
and love me till the morning
when Blue eyed Death is staring us in the face.
and we go with him,
and play a game of risk,
and together forever,
onto a diffrent world
we shall love each other forever,
for you and I both have a heart full of love.

the love we had seemed so far away

i look to stars and wishes flew through space never to be heard again
fun to friends hearts do meld and break facing until time ends
this loop that plays and beats that syncopate become but a gem
pleasure a chest opened in surprise feeling no need to defend
galaxies away lonely planets  please keep me in mind
 distance could grow something fond or lost between the lines
gps my love you can see  its still where I  left it behind
thoughts fade away with life love lives forever in my rhyme

Im sorry, I wanted more,with  all this space between
disconnected and I still look to that day
we talked on the phone, our separate homes
the love we had seemed so far away

without air i couldnt breathe squeezed until I'm passing by
no water flow my skin would dry and I return to the sky
sunny days would blacken out, attracting need for desperate lies
to make up for the beauty lost from death slowly closing my eyes
that fire once sparking motion snuffed in huffs slipping away
dwifting I sway shaky grounds where once I sat easily and stay
upon my feet I still float drowning out all thoughts that stray
Tho these ends can come swift its worse to miss and hear you say

Im sorry, I wanted more,with  all this space between
disconnected and I still look to that day
we talked on the phone, our separate homes
the love we had seemed so far away

down the road,flying free, I ride the wave and hope for your return
through several seas and cloudy peaks, storms of sand, I will not turn
helpless to fate and future events, nothing prevents something to learn
  sights may not sore, nothing much looking more, isn't my concern
I hope the best and happyness is true to bless you, not just in dreams
we can meet when we sleep discussing life while sleeping seems
thanks for trying Im not exactly dying, banes of  sentient beings
real enough moving on is rough, i'll love you forever, writting my means

When I hear your name
My heart beats faster than usual
It's not that I am ashame
But It's just your name is too special..

Can't control the feelings
When I am with you
Can't stop smiling
When you hold me like you do

When you hug me then
I feel like I'm in heaven
You are a blessing from above
And you are the reason why I loved

I'll promise to love you FOREVERMORE..
And I will cherish you until the end of my borrowed life
And I will keep our precious memories as long as
we see each other in our next life..

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.

'Love-sick loser'

Why am I a dead broke, love-sick loser
in love with a rich and affluent girl?
A poor, unwise fool, why did I choose her?
(I can't afford such a lovely, rich Pearl!)
I wish I were a prince, handsome and rich,
youthful and full of promise and prospects
(for her): but I'm none of the above, which
makes us at best love's unusual suspects.
Ironic that the love of my bleak life
is beyond my abject, penniless reach
and past my hope of her being my wife--
barriers that fate won't let me breach.
(But God they say can move heaven and Earth
for those of unlike yoke to meet His goals:
now and again He finds those hearts of worth
which He wills and unites as conjoined souls!)

First and Last Kiss

Atop the road by the sea
Thou confessed thy affection for me
By a kiss as thy language of love
Ebbed from the copious desire thou have

A kiss from thee, my first love,
Something at last I have
My first love; my first kiss
I didn’t expect I’ll miss

‘Twas a kiss of farewell
For my love will depart and travel
Didn’t know when we’ll meet again
But I’m hoping it’ll happen

Though it’s heartbreaking,
I have to accept the pain I’m feeling.
The first and last kiss we had
Is the first and last kiss we’ll have?

I wake on the sand
Right near the beach
You have yet to awake
Far out of reach
And Daybreak has arrived
A beauty unlike any other
Comparable only to us, girl
And how we love each other

So I gaze up alone
Marveling up at the sky
The warmth of the sun
Drying my eyes
I'm reflecting on us
Oh how each other we trust
I'm just so happy we're together
And I think to myself,
Just as this sun, we'll last forever

Then returning to be with you
I lay again now
Place my hand gently
On your warm tender shoulder
While I think of our lives today, love
And how they'll be when we're older...
I know there'd be no other way
So "I Love You" I make sure I say
To you, each and everyday

Being a gay daughter

Father, I know I bring you shame,
But I just can’t stop myself from speaking her name.
I can’t stop myself from calling her at night,
Checking in, making sure she’s all right.
I know you hate when we hold hands,
How do you expect me to conform to your demands?
Would it be different if it was a boy?
Would you smile and act coy?
Invite him inside,
Instead of making us hide?
I know you don’t like her because she’s a girl,
I know the thought of us together makes you hurl,
But if you would take a moment,
If you let her step into the light,
She might come off as urgent,
But I assure you, when I’m with her, everything feels right. 
Please, father, give her a chance
Just a bit of your time, 
She will save you the last dance, 
She could show you how a diamond shines.

Love Poem Number 2

The first time I glimpsed your beautiful smile,
I couldn’t believe you were real, my ideal!
Your beauty captured my attention and soul ,
I could sense it immediately, you make me whole.
Now the distance between us and every moment apart,
is so painful and sad, it blackens my heart.
For you, my heart longs, your gentle, kind touch,
Your smiles, your pure love, its all just too much,
For my lonely sad soul to be far apart,
I crave you, I need you, you are my sweetheart!
Now that you have come into my black and white world,
Color abounds, and rainbows unfurled.
A new joy in my heart, for love once again I am filled,
A new hope, a new faith, happiness re-instilled.
You are my true joy, and hope for forever,
Im thankful for you and Im glad were together.

Hello Again

Hello again my impossible girl,
I've been looking for you in this always changing world
and I have you, my impossible girl.
But, is it always what it seems?
Because every now and then I'll think
and every now and then I will dream,
that my impossible girl has found me.
Because even if I have you, will you see me?
I find it harder and harder to concentrate on the future,
when my future doesn't have my impossible girl.
So as every ball of rock and dust enters the earth,
and every birthday candle blown, 
and every night at 11:11, 
I will wish for my impossible girl to finally see me,
her impossible man waiting, 
for his impossible girl.

Where is she

Here I stand, full of expectation; 
With a rose-tinted perception of love; 
Trawling life for a small slice of heaven;
For my sweetest seraph, sent from above.

Will I find her waiting; bathed in moonlight?
Or kissed by the tender rays of the sun?
Blatantly standing on a street corner? 
Or hiding in darkness until I come?

Does she yearn for me as I yearn for her? 
Envisage me in her soft, blissful sleep;
Stealing her away from all life's heartaches; 
And taking her hand and her heart, to keep?

For now I can only ponder answers; 
Let my heart spell her name in my writing; 
Beg the gods to throw her into my path
and that day she hits my heart; lightening.

No valentine on Valentine's.
I haven't met one yet.
Each year I wait another
for a person I've not met.
There's nothing I've done wrong:
yet waiting is in vain.
And all that's left is hope
that love's a ball and chain.

When I Look Into Her Eyes

Every time I'm feeling down, or feeling so blue
As if there's nothing I can do
My spirits always seem to rise
When I Look Into Her Eyes

I'm new at this, this game of love, but got no shame
Get excited when she calls my name
We're trying on love for the very first time
When I Look Into Her Eyes

Their beauty takes me to the depths of forever
Where we are so happy, and together
Oh how I'd love to just hold her tight, and never let go
Into Her Eyes, oh how they glow

Comforting and loving with passion to spare
Those two heavens with my world, I ache to share
I'm trying on a first love, a first love for size
When I Look Into Her Eyes

The fires of my love they're igniting 
And to our future her eyes are exciting
There's rose gardens and sunny skies
When I Look Into Her Eyes

Their love, with desire is burning
She's got my world upside down, and turning
Oh how the world stops, yet the time somehow flies
When I Look Into Her Eyes

But when I think about what will happen
I realize Into Her Eyes, how deep I am trapped in
Soon I will have to kiss her softly with the goodbyes
How long will I live without their beauty, how will I survive?

A man with no plan

Running down the Valley
And the script cant lie at all 
The fasting sun rises
The harder the fall
It aint fair
It isn’t the end 
But to forgive me 
Is the pain you cannot mend
To put it in your shoes
And you remain strong 
Im weak
Cause for me this road 
Is no dead end 
And this useless blood I leak 
Red roses and violent skies cannot retrieve 
What has been lost 
And im stuck in grief 
Believe me when I say Im sorry
Acknowledge my pain
Cause too many tears have dropped
Too many shed like rain 
Left me in vain
And here I stand hopeless
Just another chance
And ill put your needs in focus
Like the bright eyes of a locus
I merely adopted the heart ache 
Like you my best friend
But your moving on 
Put me aside and lets pretend
All I needed was a hand
To hold me at my worst
Wings to raise me at my weakest
Forever I stand
A man with no plan

Only in You

Through the lonely woods, I may head,

Upon the autumn leaves, I may tread,

At the secluded horizon, I may stare,

And only you, I may see,

In those symphonies of silence,

In those melodies of calmness,

In those euphonies of quietness.


By the silent lake, I may lay,

Till the twilight fades, I may stay,

Then in reclusive silence, I may walk,

And only to you, I may talk,

Through those toungueless emotions,

Through those wordless attachments,

Through those voiceless sentiments.


In the lone meadow, I may wander,

Along the untrodden paths, I may waver,

In companionless seclusion, I may hide,

And only in you, I may find,

The depths of oneness,

The bonds of togetherness,

The cozy feel of coalescence.


In the wilderness of emotions, I may die,

At the merciless daggering, I may sigh,

Through a million wounds, I may bleed,

And only in you, I may seek,

The balm of love,

The warmth of affection,

The heal of inseparability.

Not to slow not to

The labyrinth of

It's a difficult thought, even kind of strange
If in a gender bender, I suddenly changed
But somehow let's say, I became the girl
It'd be like this, if I was giving Dave a whirl

I'd be..
Clever and sweet, so confidently secure
No manipulative games, intent wholly pure
I'd hold all your secrets, protect your heart
Believe your dreams from the very start

Whisper sweet nothings, about true bliss
Beat to the punch, when it comes to a kiss
I'd have a look, that says more than maybe
Then I'd lick my lips and watch you go crazy

You could hang with the guys, act like boys
Get all excited about you electronic toys
I'd wear your team jersey, be a fan true blue
Then after the game I'd make victory to you

Independent and strong, it'd be crystal clear
But I'd like "being us", so I'd want to be near
Free as the sun, but with a longing to please
In the heat of your day, I'd be a gentle breeze

I'd love us together, the song of our hearts
Harmony and melody, each knowing our parts
Mountains and valleys, high sky and blue seas
If I had to be a girl, your kind of girl I would be

My First Kiss

My final morning 
With you in sunlit bedroom.
My first kiss was you.

Details | Dramatic Verse | |

Glance of my age

When colors flow
From your shining face
I draw your imagination
Every morning
I invent words
To write about you
The prettiest poems
I create lies
To make you living in dreams
Your name
The most beautiful name
Your soul
The most wonderful soul
Your heart
The purest heart
Your voice
The sweetest voice
Everything is gone
Except your magic eyes
And I and the rest of your memories
A minute or flower
A second or smile
You are between the minute and flower
You are between the second and smile
You are a glance of my age..

Garden Rose

Written August 21, 2013

There's a girl in the garden
She's messing with your rose bed
Plucking weeds out from your head
And watering the seeds in your bed

But where will she wander
When the roses are dead
Will she come back for more
When they turn back to red

She can run all alone
Write this story in stone
On concrete slabs
Of skin and bone

The Four Letter Word

Four letters put together to create one word,
with an impeccable definition.

It is a strong word,
Close to the heart, yet
far from the woman you Love.

Butterflies flying, flapping their
orange and white wings in the summer heat.
The butterflies flap, flap their beautiful wings
together in the summertime of Love.

For Love is beautiful, like the summer preludes!

Four letters composed, to a Chopin's masterpiece.
The Romantic pole reaches out, to touch, to hold, to Love.

For these four letters are easy to read
and put together to create a complex concept
with a universal definition.
A four letter word, easy just to say,
but it is harder to show.
For Love is a simple word made up of simple letters,
but a complex meaing that takes most lifetimes to comprehend
and others a short while.

For I've seen hearts broken
and hearts put back together,
with this simple word.
My heart burned, brused, stabbed
knows the dangers of this simple, four letter word.

Love, some think it is a game
to play when you are bored.
Destroying self-esteem of girls,
who are already weak and nieve.
They long for love, but find surrealist dreams,
and see the Man of their dreams slip away in the night.
Gone without a trace.
While she is sucked into false promises,
from simple minded boys,
with only one thing on their mind.

Love..., it is a joke to some.
"I love you," is a laughing stock,
while a slap in the face, and disrespect is in fashion.
Girls, foolish girls walking in lonesome heartbreak,
saying they are in Love.
It is sad to see, and hard to hear, I know it is.

And to me Love is sometimes fair,
and most times a cruel joke.
Love, this four letter word is simple to say, but hard to comprehend.

Love me and I shall take you by the hand
show you caves of mystery,
and skies of grace and meadows, filled with flowers,
dedicated just for you, no one else, but you.
We can make Love on the sandy beaches, under the moonlit sky
under the still stars and shooting ones too.
Have a romantic dinner of oyster-shells and champange and kiss each other,
till we drown in intoxication and fall asleep in each others arms.

huh, Love... A simple, four letter word, that is easy to say,
but even harder to show.

Monopoly games we play with each other with  no dice in are hands
Now wait I still can’t convince you ?

Two inseparable lovers only have one goal
Pause !!! all players need too huddle up for a team meeting

The Games we play
We resume  back too play with only one objective 
 Now hold up and Wait
When you cry I am your shoulder you can lean on 

Hold on for a second I am about too change Gears

The Games we play 

when you take the key out this ignition their no you and I

The Ghost I Knew

Can I catch you
Can you stay?
Forests at wood
There we play
A gentle hand 
That fixed the dress
Brushing tears back
Saving stress
I can not bare
The oaken wave
Only memories
Can I save
I miss your hair
And what it covered
More than a mind
God knows I loved her
The ghost I knew
She rests away
I can not catch you
You can not stay.

Love Poem Number 1

Looking into your eyes, 
on the first day we meet, 
I knew right away when my heart skipped a beat,
It flutters and pounds from Your beauty and care. 
It longs for much more, a world we could share.
You bring such a smile to my tattered, worn soul
A happiness lost, so long, long ago.
A hope, a prayer, I offer to He,
I ask for a gift, your smiles at me.
A smile that grows as we are together,
A smile that shows our potential forever.
You bring me such happiness and pure heartfelt glee,
All this and much more
just being with me.
You are so amazing, so beautiful , so pure.
Your company, your heart, your smile all my cure.
I thank God everyday for hearing my plea
I thank God most of all for you next to me.

Don't Try It

A single kiss from thy lovely lips,
so sweet and so divine,
yet I taste posion upon your tongue.

Your beauty so glorious,
like a blooming rose so beautiful,
yet, why do mine eyes go blind
in the sight that you walk along with another?

Yes you, walk with another,
arm under arm,
lips touching lips in romantic kisses,
it makes my blood boil,
for mine lips are dry.

For mine eyes have seen your glory,
yet no one here listens to my story.
You are evil, yes you are,
don't try to deny,
Listen to a man of experience,
you might as well save some expense.

I write of our long romantic walks
we took together, under the shade of olive trees,
how we went apple picking in autumn time,
and made love in the foyer.

Nomore of that sweet and passionate love,
nomore silent kisses in the night,
when the wind blows hard against the branches,
that tape violently on my windowpane. 
Nomore somber tears shed, when you got sick,
and nomore warm embraces when you shed tears of betrayal.

Betrayal now is a game played by a fool,
such as I,
to think I'd have a happy life with you?
Huh, only a fool would think such a thing,
but now I sit, looking at the foyer,
where we once made sweet, passionate love,
nomore will that foyer be filled with exotic pleasure.
Nomore will you be filled with smiles and exotic pleasure.
I've done my job, as a good man shall do,
now pack your things and get of my stage,
the spotlight yawns for anew,
and the audience grows tired and restless of you.

Now I live life anew,
you too shall see life in new eyes,
walking hand and hand with the blond, blue eyed devil
you call your own.
Shall he take one kiss from your lips,
and die of the posion he tastes on your tongue,
shall he go blind, when he sees your true, black beauty?
He will see the ugly soul, covered up by white rags,
and cheap makeup,
and then he will come to me,
and shake my hand in condolence
and say, "You were right!"

Now you are all alone,
looking for another, as you did many times before,
Now you are alone, walking an open road,
spying on another,
fear of being alone.
Now, you see when you play games with a good man's emotions,
don't try it,
because a good man is not meant to be toyed with.

My Love

My Love

I love you much, my love, therefore I beg you
Give me that which till today, nobody have asked you
Don’t puzzle, I hope, you’ll help me in this regard
Best beloved and well wishers have supplied essentials
Of lovers always if we turn back too pages of history

Don’t worry; I'm not hurting you demanding your life
Your assets, requires you much rather than to me
I don’t care darling what other guys evaluate upon my asking
Because I don’t see more valuable things than that 
Which can easily, you can offer me

Even it doesn't hold any cost just some dedications 
Which till today no one has dared to offer?
I love you heartily so I want to take stand in this regard
Projecting out as if in the hill some inscriptions in ridges
To draw the attraction of demonstrators 

Don’t afraid, I’m not wishing you to make you show piece
To others at you or my cost, you’re my every thing
Why should I believe you in that easy way?
Definitely my intuition invokes me from within
You will offer me that instinct for my pleasure

Cause, I've noticed in your bright appearance
Deliverance of love is in different mode
Your juvenile desiring to oblige somewhere in the custom
I believe, as we are reared in the same village
In the same brink of the river.

Many times we have rained with completely
Our cows and herds also could not differ them
Swollen brooklets have helped us to unite body
Catching in hand hugging you and adding your body with mine
While crossing you know we used to become one

You can guess your feeling would have crossed the height of Himalayas
To understand, what body wants to be done? 
Your drowned eyes and dropping down drops of water
Used to provoke effort

Beyond that down through the throat, running paths for drenched water
Was explicitly witness, the curved part would be seizing more for that
As a trunk of elephant’s those beautiful thighs
Used to give witnessing purity ascribe for judgement of love

Slowly, crossing plain, stepping towards hills and 
Demarcation of two grassy lanes, when used to welcome
To separate, I know my pinches would cleave you
With high breathe. My love, I love you, I confirmed my decision to you.

Good bye

Regrets & mistakes they're memories made..
Our bridge burned up in smoke...
Who would have known how bitter the end would taste...
With what was done...
It over shadows all the good times we shared...

Wish I could remove the pain...
Please don't forget me, I beg....
I'll find someone like you...
And give her all the things I wanted to give to you...
I wish you all the best....

Her name was Barbara
We were in first grade
I was so awestruck
At how tough she played
But there was much more
She had charm and grace
And pigtails that framed
Her incredible face
Boys didn't like girls
Not in first grade
But I was a sailor boy
And she was a mermaid
You can call it puppy love
But I still think of her today
I won her heart and hand
On the dock of a bay
Stayed up the night before
Pulled deep from my heart
All the feelings I felt
That was my poetry start
I watched as she read
My heart was ready to pop
She stood and kissed me
I never wanted to stop
Oh the power of words
When birthed in the soul
Love still amazes today
It has riches untold

Love Letter

an untitled slam poem that addresses gender and also being a lesbian

"Oh," she whispers, "but she's here with a boy!" Her words, especially the painted blue one, stick to her palm covering her lips and mouth, I lace my fingers through yours and this happens simultaneously on opposite sides of the room, we look at each other and smile, the suppressed laughter in our mouths a balloon blown so full it's about to pop,

It pops.

You're not all boy.

We laugh because she saw you from far away, she saw you and your hair that basically spells out either, 'lesbian,' or, 'boy,' across your forehead.

I look at your eyes. I tell you: Jesus, she thinks you're a boy and she thinks I'm straight we've neeever been in this situation before.
We laugh.

And, oh, that waitress that one time said, "thank you sir," when you handed her your credit card, her words overflowing with poisonous flirtation, spilling out of her mouth along with a biohazardous receipt, Her fingertips brushed yours as she handed it to you,
She didn't know. Painful ignorance.
After she left, you asked, "So is she a lesbian? Or..."

I didn't have the heart to tell you that she thought you were all boy.

I also didn't have the heart to believe the waitress didn't know she was feeding us poison.

you acted like it was nothing, but I, like, internally growled or something because the only two people who are this protective over someone else are moms and girlfriends.

She whispers, "Oh, but she's here with a boy!" and the blue word caresses our cheeks like your thumb and mine, currently participating in some sort of passive aggressive thumb makeout session because that's a nervous habit we have when we hold hands. 
And we have the words "boy" and "lesbian" written across our foreheads, so it's a good thing I focus on your eyes.

Bob, the Forgotten Valentine and Greedy Double Dater

My friends, this saga slowly unfurls
 a love story that went quickly awry,
 seems greedy Bob dated a pair of girls
 when with one, to the other he’d lie.
The homlier girl’s name was Edith
 who, nonetheless Bob was fond of,
 but, greedy Bob wanted to live out the “myth”
 and with sisters, he was sure to find love !
He began slyly asking about sister Kate
 for her beauty was equalled by few,
 she was young, and he believed her well worth the wait
 she had enough sex appeal for two !
Bob’s antics had him severely troubled
 because, he covered his tracks day and night,
 his love-making prowess had quickly doubled
 so his lovelife was going just right !
Well, finally Bob’s saga ended in terror
 because the girls both found out what he’d done,
 Bob had mixed their names up, in a passionate error
 and what transpired next, was not very fun !
One of the sisters had taken Bob’s life
 because he’d proven he couldn’t be “true”,
 and the lesson he learned, at the end of that knife
 taught, “you can’t have your Kate…..and Edith, too !

Sapphire Star

Among the stars she searched for one
to be her friend on distant dome;
her thoughts to lay and whispered gnome,
her childhood tales and scopes undone.

Among the million bright sparkles,
she chose one that kindly signaled,
her lone thoughts to him syllabled
mind's endless lines and traced circles.

And in the endless astral fire
she saw his friendly blink to smile
similitude of a Greek isle,
it was the sparkling of sapphire.

A song ascends from the pine woods
to meet the smiling star of blue
and is their solitude untrue,
unsolved of questions understood.

And then she slept on distant fare,
along the bless of blue sapphire,
the tunes of a Greek ancient lyre,
accompanied their dreams in air.

And while she slept the sapphire weaved 
blankets of light she softly held
the lyre star song dreaming she spelled,
and then for nothing else she grieved.

Distant Love

The hours dwindle slowly by- 
When I want you by my side. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath 
As you kiss away my pride. 
The anger melts away, 
When I'm held within your arms.
My balance quickly faltering;
As I fall for all of your charms.
The weeks are always longer-
When I don't get to have you near.
Wishing that I could run to you- 
The distance heightening my fear. 
The hours go by rapidly-
When you are finally home. 
 Leaving me all by myself;
With my thoughts to roam. 
The cycle starts all over- 
I'm wishing that you were free. 
Longing to feel the warmth of your breath. 
Until you come right back to me.

Remember me, Don't Forget me

Can you hear the thumping, thump, thump of my heart beating away?
Can you hear my whispers of love in your ear,
as you sleep the night away in your bed, laying on the virgin white sheets,
tangled in blankets?
Can you hear me sing our favorite song, as you walk down the lonesome avenue?
Can you hear my soul, cry out for a warm embrace of your sweetest hugs?
Can you hear me cry out for a simple, loving kiss upon the lips?

I don't ask for much from you, my love.
All I ask you, is if you can hear me, and to see that you still believe in me,
and I haven't became a figment, a ghost in a scrapbook.
That I am still there with you, and not a picture of a memory collecting dust in a box.
I don't ask for much from you, my love.
I just want to know if you can still hear me, deep in your heart!

Don't forget about me.
Don't move to another, without first accepting that we had something beautiful.
Don't let me go off and vanish in vain.
Admit, you loved me, but you were afraid. Of What? I ask myself.
I don't know.

Can you feel me, touch you gently on the arm?
Can you feel my embrace, as you sit there crying on your bed,
crying to the pattern and rythmn of the rain tapping on the window pane?
Can you hear me, can you feel me? Do you even know that I'm here, with you?
Do you...?

Don't destroy something beautiful.
I love you.

I don't ask for much from you, My Love.
all I ask is that you remember.
You remember the laughs, the fun we had,
the long walks, and the long talks.
Remember the Ferris Wheel at the amusement park,
where we first kissed.
And shared our first corndog together,
and I won you that purple stuffed teddybear.
On cold nights, we'd cuddle together.
I'd write you love poems and we talk for hours about nonsense.
Remember, how you'd cry and I'd hold you, and kiss you upon your sweet head.
Remember, the nights we'd sleep together,
and the mornings we'd wake up together
with a smile and a morning kiss.
Do you remember, My Love, Do you?
Remember the good times, and don't get up and leave so quick.
To jump right into someone else's arms and forget all about me.

Can you feel the pain I have for you?
Can you feel the love I give to you?
Can you hear me sigh and cry, for one more night of love with you?
Can you...?

I don't ask for much from you, My Love.
All I ask is that you remember me,
For I still and will always remember you.

Shortest Love Story

Our elbows collided, 
'cause my desk is wrong-sided.
Made for a lefty, 
When I write
with my right.

The Mistake You Cannot Forget

You say you cannot forget
And you aren't ready to forgive
But I need your friendship
More than you'll even know
I need you there to live

Without you by my side today
Life's been going, oh so slow
I miss your calls
Our endless talks
The places we would go

You can't even bear to look at me,
And I know my mistake
For because of one night,
And a few thoughtless actions,
When you saw me you ran and hid

I know we cannot take it back
As much as we would like to
But we could forget
And start all over
Just friends, that's me and you

If time is what you need,
Then I guess that's what you'll get
But I need you there for me soon,
My friend,
I hope you will forget…

Fascinated by his charm wishing to lie deep in his arms,
Staring at his picture I begin to wonder how is he as a lover.
Very interested in all his attention I am willing to go long distance to reach my destination.
I am desire driven he is my sexual craving.
My fantasies are arousing just to feel his kisses.
As my body twitches, involuntary my muscles start contractions.
As he starts to touches, I become helpless.
Sensations are so overwhelming devastation passionate detonations.
I love the way he touches, his fingers caresses.
Fantasizing his lips walking down my spine, him whispering, “Forever be mine”.
Familiarizing his body with mines our eyes collide.
I become paralyze unable to move, bonded like super glue.
As his eyes speak to me passionately, he is a prodigy, never depriving me.
I ride him like the Kentucky Derby, on it like a stick shift I begin to drip.
He begins to bite his bottom lip, as he moans making his deposit.
My body moves with smooth intent, as I squeeze and grip.
I gently lay my head upon his chest, our body rest.
He glances into my eyes and whispers, “goodbye”.
I blink one time and my fantasy memorizes quickly and dies.
I again, softly close my eyes and only darkness resides.

Love Distance

I love you a lot, but I do not see you much
When I see you face to face my day goes great.
I think about you every night before I sleep and pray that everything goes well for you,
I hope to see you very soon
Our love is distant, but our hearts are close.

that special smile

waited all these years
for that special smile
feel like i cant wait
but ill just bide my time
cause i know your smile waiting for me
waited all these years
don't be long
want to see that smile like sunrise
rising up for me
you roll up that joint
and we will sit and talk while you smoke
in the late day sun
feels so fine
lets see that smile
rising up for me

Swings of Childhood

Into exile
To depth of feeling
To the green paradise
To silence of seasons
To the Old Testament
Wherever you go
Swings of childhood
Will whisper to your soul
Which bets as the rain
Swings of childhood
Will whisper to gulls's hearts
Which bet as dreams
Into exile
To depth of flowers
To outer space
to the bottom of black hole
Everywhere in the universe
My imagination will call you
And we will meet
When swings and gulls meet.....

Lost and Found

To imagine after all this time that has gone by,
    I would be talking to the one that once caught my eye.
Out of nowhere one day she just seemed to appear,
   Just so incredibley surprising to me after all of these years.
Sharing all those thoughts and dreams we once had ,
   How we laughed at those days yet it made us a bit sad.
For the feelings I did not know she had for me ,
   It only makes me wonder what our lives would be.
Our hearts now beating as they did back in the days,
   How we are acting like children going out to play.
The love I feel for her has never felt so strong,
   A love that once was I thought was forever gone.
But to my excitement I can honestly & sincerely say ,
   The love that was lost has been found and here to stay.
This thing we have found in this love between you & me ,
   Joy and happiness for the rest of our lives is what I see.

Oh, how I would love that, starting today, you would become my skin
So that I could take you places where I have never been.
We would ride from rose to rose, our souls floating in the wind,
And when the time to rest comes, I would lie on your chest,
And we would meet again underneath this same strange sky.

And through a long, long kiss,
A kiss as long as your body,
I would realize that not even a dream
Could have been more tender.

Oh, how I would love to be perfumed by your breath,
And to know that there will be no parting,
That parting that makes us leave each other at a certain time,
Since people think that Love requires a moon
To allow its honey to run freely through our hearts.

And through a long, long kiss,
A kiss as long as your body,
I would realize that not even a dream
Could have been more tender.

Oh, how I would love to turn you into my guitar,
So I could hug you freely and make my poem out of you
And have your loving words become the caresses of my night,
So that the breaking dawn would compete against our light.

And through a long, long kiss,
A kiss as long as your body,
I would realize that it’s no dream,
And I would tell you that I love you.

Love is

What is that thing that is called love? 
Some people believe it is a gift from above 

Others say it brings nothing but pain 
Maybe it is a one way train 
When you take your path 
You could never go back again 

It may take you to the happiness door 
Or maybe make you taste life's sore! 

Maybe love is just like the rain 
You never know how hard it would be 
Or how long it would last 
Love could come so fast 
I mean love from the first sight 
Or it could take so long time 
to be meant to be.. to be so right 
Love could put you into darkness 
And could bring you the brightest light! 

Love is like the fire 
Such a mysterious desire 
But weather it is going to warm your heart 
Or burn your home 
You can never forsee it from the start 
You can never tell 
If It is going to lead you to heavens 
Or is it going to lead you to hell! 

Love could take you from the cold 
And make you feel so warm 
Love is like a rose 
Beautiful but also with thorns that could harm! 

Love could be like glass 
If you dropp it, it shatters 
And never be put completly back together 
But love can also be like porceline 
Never cracks & stays forever 

It is so strange 
How could such a small word hold so many contradictories? ! 
A small word but with so many question marks 
It is such a complicated feeling 
That confuses any human being! 

As for me.. I'm just a young little girl 
Trying to know what is love? ! 
Simply for me 
Love is like a white dove 
Flying so high 
Up.. Up in the baby blue sky 

So far for me to reach 
But If I only understand it 
To the whole world I would teach 

Love is so precious 
Love is a treasure 
Love is not cheap 
Love is when you can't fall asleep 
For reality is better than dreams 
And life is sweeter than it seams 

Love comes from the heart 
Not the brain 
You don't know when it starts 
You don't think about it 
You just feel it over and over again 

Love is not Just the saying of words 
But the giving of one self 
Love is caring 
Love is daring 
And most of All 
Love is sharing 

Love is not to live in fears 
Love is not a matter of counting years 
But making the years count 

Love is 
Telling, listening, understanding, 
Respecting the truth and never pretending 
True love does NOT have a happy ending! 
True love does NOT have an ending! 

Love.. some say it is blind 
But I say 
Love gives you a third eye 
To make it easy for you to find 
Who is worthy? ! !

Cheating Hearts

Feeling like we are growing apart, broken trust is the process how it starts.
Adulteration I suddenly became, a substance that tends to contaminate.
I lessen in the value of your love, from me being unfaithful committing adultery.
You start to deprecate expressing the hate, your disapproval begins to belittle.
Me saying sorry holds no weight.
Abomination arousing your feelings of disgust leaves my head hung.
 Pulling triggers on a gun, decapitation from hurting your feelings.
I pray for forgiveness, I start to feel demented.
Love turns to mental illness; I diminish.
Do not walk away, please just listen when I told you I love you, I meant it.
If you can have mercy on me it will be a blessing. 
A disposition to forgive, I promise to never do it again.
I cannot lose you; you are my collagen the protein that feeds my bones.
If you could love me once, we shall overcome.
If you can look me in my eyes and tell me your love for me has died, I will regretfully stand a side.
My cheating heart slowly withers apart.
Love that was once pure and true has now became nonexistence, since the moment I betrayed you.
You started your modifications as your emotions start the process of changing.
I watch you turn into a mutant because of my cheating.
I know there is nothing I can say to comfort you.
Your heart is hurting just as much as mines do.
As I watch your heart tear apart, both of our heart beats stop.
Devitalize as we weaken the consistency of our relations.
 We both became a cheating heart descended inheriting emotional characteristics.
Our hearts dying slowly, while pretending to be living simply coexisting.

An old couple sits facing west Having a picnic, they are blessed They overlook a short, small stream They each have some frozen ice-cream To jump in the stream is their test Daring to wade, they surely jest Bugs do bite them, a real life pest His heart’s hers, to always redeem An old couple They enjoy the view, just the best He would get something off his chest Marriage proposal, he did beam Romance sure ran wild, it did seem They saw the sunset facing west An old couple

Evening walk on the beach

I walked alone
along a sandy and lonely beach.
The raging waves from the sea
crashed onto the slimy sea shore.
The riding waves were white and bare,
but when they violently crashed, turned white and black.

I walked along the lonely beach.
Listening to the seagulls chatting
on silver rocks and boulders.

I sat near the shore.
The waves coing in and out
crashing violently on the silver rocks and boulders.
I sat there, lonely skipping pebbles into the vase and endless sea.
The waves came in and swallowed the pebbles, I threw its way.

The sea crabs wabbling from side to side, came up from the shore.
They kept me company on a lone and quiet evening.
A lone dog walking without an owner
came and curled up next to me,
and barked at the chattering seagulls.
They flew in panic toward the setting of the Red Sun,
and disappeared into the evening paradise.

The lone dog gazed upon the red sheld sea crabs,
and chased their wabbling bodies away
back down to the slimy sea shore.
And at the setting of the evening, I was alone.

Soon I had seen something
that had shocked me,
A young and beautiful gypsy woman.
She crossed my path along the lonesome beach.
All of a sudden the beach became full with love and life of all kind.

The lilacs, and roses, and violets and daisies
grew tall and bloomed, like madmen.
The waves pulled in by the full moon,
that shinned upon me and the Gypsy Woman.
She was decorated with ragged skirts and blouses,
with shinny, white pearls around her neck,
and golden bracelets around her wrists.

She smiled at me.
I smiled back at her.
Her hair black, with a vail of flowers around her head.
She stopped me and held my hand.
I was astonished and afraid.

What was this stunning and beautiful woman doing to me?
A victim of lost love and heartbrake.
I had no money, no jewlery.
I asked her what she wanted.
She replied with loneliness in her voice;
"To be loved."

I pulled her in, and kissed her,
and whispered softly in her ear,
decorated with silver earrings;
"Me too."

We joined hands and walked the lonesome sandy beach.
Listening to the waves, now softly coming in and pulling out.
The shore, now not so slimy, 
and the silver rocks and boulders sleeping so peacefully.
I turned to her and she smiled at me.
I held her in my arms and kissed her upon her sweet brow.

Her Gorgeous Welcoming Smile

I was hopelessly smitten in English class, With a girl with a boyfriend, a challenging impasse. She had long shiny locks, the color of auburn, And the curves of a Ferrari, in a hairpin turn. To win her away from her boyfriend's lair, Took me getting noticed, to ever have a prayer. A skateboard handstand, gave me the exposure, Roaring by upside down, as they hunted four-leaf clovers. Once her best girlfriend, gave me the great news, That my gorgeous sweet red head was singing the blues. Because she and that other guy, now a thing of the past, One phone call and BAM, we're dating at last! Now on to her best features, the theme of this prose, And the reason I'd eventually ultimately propose. Then move her from one place to another eight times, As the wife of a Sailor, a career Navy wife. Her full lips frame a gorgeous, welcoming smile, Thirty-seven years now, I’ve come to admire. Conveying kindness, but warning all men, She’s spoken for, and happily taken. Her most attractive feature has always been clear, Her warmth and her genuinely pleasant demeanor. She’s a funny gal, and awfully smart, But mostly she remains, my high school sweetheart!

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm

years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

A different time and generation 
No spoken words could say more 
When touch was not just a feeling 
You could be rich when you were poor

And a smile was like the sunrise 
Eyes could make time stand still 
Beauty was in the moment 
No ticket needed to have a thrill

You could court without a judge back then 
A date could be a Sunday drive 
Dreaming was done while awake
No need of power drinks to feel alive

Life wasn't techno managed 
Engagement could be a surprise 
Watermelon seeds and Double Cola 
On the Princess' hand a sparkling prize

Chocolate was more than candy
Boy or girl was discovered on delivery day 
Dinner meant more than eating
The outside world didn't get in the way

But these good ole days haven't disappeared 
On Francis Street they've taken pause 
Past and present seamlessly intertwined 
You can't explain it..
it's just because!

My sweetheart

My sweetheart
Cover me
Be as textile of warm love
filling my breathes
Sing for me
Utter my words
Be as cloud of my heart
Raining my tones
Don't be like thorns of flowers
Wounding my dreams
You are the dancer of the first love
You are pulsation of the motionless sea
You are the light
You are the magic
You are the world of oblivion
My sweetheart
This is a pub and that is the place of worship
And this is my heart
Go wherever you want
Neither the night will ask you
Nor silence of eyes....

My Love is Gone

When I first beheld her, what a sight!!
I lost my breathe as if I have been in a fight.
though she wasn’t a princess,
she was as beautiful as a goddess.
she didn’t have gold,
but her eyes glimmered like emerald that wasn’t old

I was entrapped in her snare of beauty
I lost myself and my sense of duty
for she occupied my thoughts all the time
when told of my love for her, she accepted with time.
never had the temerity to tell her of my love face to face
of my love for her, I told her thru the phone with grace.

Alone at home, I longed to meet and tease her
and my lips longed to kiss her
I lost my appetite for food
knowing am in love, I thanked God for being so good.
for us to meet, we schedule a date
that day I ate just a grape

Across the street I saw her looking,
then seeing me, she lost her footing
running towards me, she forgot she was in the street
in her hand dangled a packet of sweet
she didn’t hear my voice to lookout
then there was a loud “BANG”.

Sprawled on the asphalt was my love
as I knelt beside her, I was at a loss
pumping from her was blood
seeing it many people shouted “oh lord”
there and then my love died
when I fainted, many persons thought I had died

I cried in my doom
and for years my face was in gloom
I never had the chance to tease her
I never had the chance to kiss her
I cried in melancholy
and thought of myself unholy

I never had the opportunity to love again
and I can’t bring myself to love again

Sleep In Her Soul

It's easy to become lost in the idea that only things in life change you;
rather than you are always changing in your creation. 
When you look at demons in the haze, marvel at the haze. 
Demons are feeling homesick.

Be true to everything you are and thrive on.
We all have demons, it's up to you on what to do with those demons. 
The most dangerous are the ones unknown. 
She is herself. A beautiful demon; not hidden behind a shadow. 

Her magic is infested in my desire.
She is beautiful for I can unravel her thoughts.
She expresses to me the words intertwined with my ambiguity.
Riddled with love; I sleep in her soul.

She is my butterfly in our cosmic cannibalism.

That True Girl

 she's human,
Not so fun to be with,
Not so pretty.

But she choose to forget that,
Walking with her head up high,
The pretty girl that is so damn fly,
Sweet you don't want to tell her bye,
The better version of independent mind,
She young wild n free,
Not to mention she living her life,
She don't need you to keep reminding her of her negative side. 
 For she don't live on that side.

Touched By Your Flame

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.

Embrace me

Embrace me like there is no other one
Time flies, we get old, changes will come
Life is short and you'll need one

Hold me deep, and as if you have won
I return to touch you now. Please..
Embrace me like there is no other one

To hold you and to keep you before you run
And if you feel there is no time
Life is short and you'll need one

Keep me close to your heart for fun
As the love I feel will keep you strong 
Embrace me like there is no other one

That will kiss you and stay for the long run
Even with cloudy skies and dark nights
Life is short and you'll need one

To love you, to make you smile and scream 
That I am here to stay, and all you need is
Embrace me like there is no other one

Princess Fairy Tinsel

Princess Tinsel.

It was a day in springtime in the valley
All the Elves and fairies gathered round
Today it was the coronation morning
Fairy Princess Tinsel would be crowned.

As blackbirds and some thrushes in the treetops
They warbled out a happy sounding song
The crickets and the frogs joined in, in chorus
You could tell that there was something going on.

Fairy Princess Tinsel, she was lovely
And on this very day she would be queen
And all the woodland people were ecstatic
For such a caring princess she had been.

So then the valley's filled with happy laughter
As fairy dust did sparkle everywhere
For Princess Tinsel soon she would be ruler
And oh, that lady was so very fair.

And as I end this story our Queen Tinsel
Has married her the prince who now be king
And peace and happiness does rule the valley
Which now they call "the land of everything".

I Want

I want to sing you
I want to write you
I want to watch you
And describe you

I would like to compose you
You, my ninth symphony
To put you on a stave
To play your melody

I want to sculpt you
Without engraving too much
Hardly anything to change
Some details to fix

I want to photograph you
Under different lights
To whip with the flash
All those artifices that are hiding you

I want to break your records
Go through your body's limits
Jump higher, run further
When man an athlete is one

I could go on with other arts
But none of them seem good enough to define you
So I'll go on in which my words are the finest
For you, I'll never stop writing

My lasting hope is of you and me.

Loves Sensual Caress

To hold you close, to have you near,
to have my breath, against your ear. 
Whispering the words I long to say,
to show you my passion, in that special way.

The loving, the kissing would feel so right,
expressing our love, right through the night.
Our bodies come together in pure ecstasy, 
Kissing and moaning, You become part of me.

Reaching that point there is no turning back,
our bodies explode together with love.
Now, cuddling and laughing, we've done it all,
I look up and smile, Oh! It's you I love.

Slay Me Again, Please

Slay Me Again, Please

Take your shadow and false love away
you put the blue in a man's day
So sexy with those perfect curves
addiction, the melting of my nerves

Yes, baby want you to stay all night
make love again before we fight
Send me into another hot, sexy dream
wash me so deeply with your steam

Give me that feeling so damn right
you and that body so damn very tight
I beg for more of this evil disease
slay me yet again, again if you please

Take your shadow and false love away
you put the blue in a man's day
So sexy with those perfect curves

AHHH, yes , I remember who this was written about. 
She was down for the summer and we met at a 
local small beach on Blue Lake. She wore the smallest bikini 
Id ever seen. We were inseparable for about 2 months.
I lost 15 pounds , due to all the exercise and lack of sleep..
Then, then she went back to Holland Michigan and wrote me two 
letters and we talked 3 times by phone.. Never returned the next
 Spring as promised. I cruised onward without missing 
a beat. Youth has its advantages. Stone cold fox she was and as hot
 as a three dollar pistol too.

He is young, handsome and got all it takes
To get involved with him, girls get tied to the stakes
Early in his age he set it off with one in a relationship
The love was fierce; both were wolves and none the sheep
Quarrel today and settle today; the relationship seem not to last
Sincerity danced to the lime-light; someone will surely get hurt at last
He ignorantly made her jealous and she sought a pay-back
She left him for his best friend but later sought to come back
Marriage and family ties got deep in line; too late to get back
The first girlfriend in his past.

So heartbroken and sad; he refused to show concern
The latest girl was so pretty and that calls for concern
She was his childhood friend he shared kisses with
Another relationship in line; amidst tares he took out the best wheat
It all started off so well, he broke the heart of her cousin
They were too close; the girl was close to his cousin
Childhood friendship an advantage thought this one will last
Unfortunately, the happy relationship came to end so fast
They lost it all: love, compatibility, friendship and in themselves a taste
The second girlfriend in his past.

Tired of relationships, he dived into friends with benefits
It was so sweet an adventure; to every girl, he got a benefit
He became so free and there was no love seen to be found
Nothing to loose as its just sex and the girls were always around
Tasting all juicy like Solomon’s pear; Complications in line he got scared
Frightened out his shoes; friends with benefit? He was no longer prepared
In the midst of storm; just like Jonah , he remembered there is someone so dear
The safest adventure is a relationship with her and there will be nothing else to fear
Difficult as of the beginning but she later came to terms and vowed to always be there
The third girl; presently in his present…

Love Mistress

An imported imperfection of his delayed conclusion of opinions leaves me restless.
I know I may not be the prettiest, I know my body may not be the fittest.
However, my heart remains the same, his love pumps blood into my veins.
As I start losing mental ability to my brain bleeding heavy quantities, my heart start hemorrhaging.
Blood vessels begin tearing up from my emotions, my eyes swelling.
His words burn like melting plastic, nonmetallic his compassion is synthetic, as lovers turn platonic.
It is hard to comprehend his love presence, when there are no immediate surroundings of his love emotions.
His actions are making me feel less of a woman, and very unwanted.
His presentation makes me hesitant, from the way his love is presented.
He is evil and ever so gentle, but he says he loves me.
He does not understand what his action does to my inner emotions.
Wretched in sadness marked by misery, embedded in love poverty he does not care how this affects me.
This is his way he shows his love for me.
Marinating in promises I get his love like an allowance.
He says that one day I will be his wife, so I stay in hopes of his change.
Again, he tells me he trying so who am I to complain.
A mistress of his love I became, I will not be ashamed for his love I pertain.
His love I can relate to, his pain I persecute and oppress as he overall abuse.
Pharmaceutical kind of love overdosing as a drug, I am his side effect I learned to suppress hold my emotions back. Like if, his words caress.
As I stroke his ego, I become humble. My pain is a ritual I know the procedure.
Mistress of his love I remain even longer, and I linger.

I'm dead without my Love

I am dead without my love.
It is simple as that.
I cannot breath without her,
I cannot eat without her,
I cannot write without her.
I cannot live without my love,
I am dead without my love.

I cannot prosper without her warm embrace,
I cannot think without her by my side.
always thinking of her, sharing her love I once had,
with another.
My heart breaks,
and my mind is gone.
I weap... I weap...
I cannot handle the betrayal of my once love.
I am stuck, sitting in dark corners of dark rooms,
staring at blank walls, thinking of what once was.

Her beauty,
her smile,
the laughs shared, and the tears we weaped together.
Holding hands, you and I, walking down sandy beaches,
and beautiful highways, full of love.
How we sat on park benches and kissed the night away.
I cannot believe you are gone, with another.

I did what I could,
I loved you endless time on my hand.
Our time spent together was special and near to the heart.
Do not expect for that happiness to come again.
For that has sailed, to far East, to the rising of the new day.

But, I cannot live one more day without my love.
For what I had with her is unexplainable and beautiful beyond definition.
I have seen the wayward signs point me to the direction of you.
But when we see each other, you don't spare a passing glance,
as if I was a ghost, an invisible man, like air.
That is when my heart breaks, torn in two, I cannot see me without you.
Walk with another, shall I go, now this without you.

For she is my everything, beauty and nature.
She is my rose, my violet, my nightingale singing her songs, in the twilight.
She is the sky, the sun, the moon, the trees, the grass.
She is everything to me.
She is even the summer storms and Winter blizzards that roll in and destroy,
beauty and harmony.

I cannot live without my love, for she is my one and only.
I do not like to beg, but love me once again and live with me forever.
For you know and I know, and the world knows,
That I cannot live without you,
I cannot live without my love,
For I am dead without my love.

12 days of kiss-mas

On the 12th day of kiss-mass my true love sent to me
12 dirty undies
11 socks a stinking
10 shoes a humming
9 shirts for pressing
8 trousers 
7 days of take-out boxes
6 flagons of beer
5 D V D's
4 mischievous children
3 dozen wine bottles
2 ex partners
and an engagement ring under the tree

Hold You In My Smile

Sweet moment, stay with me, 
and pray do not flee so soon, 
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling, 
that has only just been found, 
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile, 
So that I can savour you once more, 
and hold you in my smile.

Scarlet Moons and Indian Suns

Written August 29, 2013

She could have had my son
As we'd spell our names as one
On scattered ocean shores
Beneath that Indian sun

I loved my ma
And I loved her well
I loved my pa
And that musty smell

I hope to see them some day soon
I hope to see them smiling too
This Earth they left a bit too soon
Much thanks unto the scarlet moon

Some day well all be joined as one
Under scarlet moons and Indian suns

I love my family
How I miss this feeling
Of constant embrace
Awaiting at my feet

So come and pray for rain
To wash away our pain
Before the winter stains
What autumn left to drain

I hope to see them some day soon
I hope to see them smiling too
This Earth they left a bit too soon
Much thanks unto the scarlet moon

Some day well all be joined as one
Under scarlet moons and Indian suns

A True Love Poem

Could it be that im crazy in love?
Are you what my dreams are made of?
Ive fallen into you head first.
With one simple kiss you broke my cruse.
From this day forward ill never leave your side.
This life is to short my love for you will never die.
Ill always stand up for you even when I know your wrong.
Cause in each others hearts is where we belong.
This babe I can honestly swear.
No matter where this world takes us ill always be there.
All my dreams have came true.
Just simply because I got to meet you.
Your my very own angel that came from above.
Im forever great full cause you never gave up our love.
Ill be your angel even tho my halo is covered in rust.
I will be patiently waiting cause your love I forever trust.
I give you all my heart and soul.
Its only when were together I truly feel whole.
You have never gave up on me.
Im sorry it took me so long to see.
I don't no how ill ever repay this.
Ill start every morning with a smile and a kiss.
Ill end every last night
Known I loved you with all my might.
I love you more today then I did yesterday.
I love you more then any words can possibly say.
I wrote these words while you were asleep last night.
For once in my life loving seems so right.
Ive got to thank you cause I don't no what you see.
How could someone like you possibly love me?

more than fascination

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply fascination

As a moth attracts to a flame,
 I became; blinded by his blaze.
Leaving me wounded and dazed, 
On the battle Ground is where we remain.
Leaking trust like a weak bladder,
Discharging accusations like violent explosions, of gunpowder.
Not believing in the love, I have for him,
Leaving Blood splats all over the arena.
Bleeding blood shot eyes.
Everything I have to say, he takes as lies.
Having no mercy for the man before me,
I become the predator.
Breaking up just to make up, crazy to others but works for us.
Love and war for the man I adore,
Late night bickering in engage peevish arguing.
Skirmish conflicts leading to intimate kisses,
 of the battle of the sexes.
Some loving is what I really wanted.
Sexually yielding complying with the request of his desires, I admire.
I lay down on the battleground, surrendering my rights while he continues to play fight.
Lieutenant in his presence,
 next in rank to my captain.
In love with his persistent makes me pursue this.
Never having to fight for his attention,
He gives me everything I been missing.
As he is taking charge, I am pinned up against the wall.
He is my personal lifeguard, my body as the main yard.
My love is the trump card.
Battling to death almost out of breath as the words I am sorry lay our problems to rest.
Until next time with our bipolar tendencies, he loves and dislikes me.

Should I

should i stop loving you,
because of your thick eyebrows?
or should i stop loving you,
because of your tiny nose?

should i stop loving you,
because of you broad waist?
or should i stop loving you,
because of your ugly face?

should i stop loving you,
because of your nasty handwriting?
or should i stop loving you,
because at bed you're snoring?

should i stop loving you,
because of your weird habits?
or should i stop loving you,
because of your misaligned teeth

should i stop loving you,
because they tell me to do so?
or should i start ignoring this,
because I LOVE YOU

Be my life

When trees cry
Love dies
In your wounded heart
At night
Among colors of tears
I see nothing But your green eyes
Your eyes are my soul
Your heart is the perfume of my life
And you are the lamp of darkness
When I meet you!
When I hug your virgin soul!
This is you! !
Flower of spring
The beauty of days
Don’t leave me alone
Be the night covering me
Be the love protecting me
Be the eyes shutting my dreams
Be my life….

you had me fool

Sometimes I sit all alone,and remember all the promises we made together,than I see them fade away in the wind,kind like the petals of a flower, were feelings over come my fear,than I remember you had me on a spell,you deserve a round of applause,you had me fool, you always was embarrass of me,according to you I was the clown,were all the tears you gave me,were behind the jokes i made,and the smile I kept from fallen down,you deserve a round of applause,what's your next trick?,try to break my heart,or better yet,lie to me, make me fall back to your arms, what's the matter cat got your tongue,that's not suppost to happen to you, your like the best when it comes to magic, you once told me I was your light,trust me not the light of  the dance floor,more like that old abandon light bulb in your closet door, you deserve a round of applause,you had me fool,I could swarn,that trick was real,you gave me so much to think about,and tears to deal, what's your next trick? Run away with someone else and forget about me? Do me a favor and erase my mind,and blind my eyes with more lies, you can't miss ,it works every time, for your last final trick, steal the show with your screams and hits,this time I'll know,I'm not to blame,you can hand cuff me,and rip my heart once again,don't you worry is just a stage,sometimes I sit here all alone as I turn the page,the rip pages of our love story,I finally came to the end,did you know she didn't love him cuz he wasn't cool,oh wow! you deserve a round of applause you had me fool.

Illusion of a Lullaby

A lullaby when he begins to speak magnetism of energy lures my heart to beat, for a man I have yet to meet. The imagination of him portraying a beautiful illusion of this love he seeks.
Me giving birth to the love he thirsts to bring my love forth, the new beginning of anything worth binding I am trying.
I am crying my lullabies in compliance I am ready to give my heart to you,
Only if my fantasy could come true, my dynamics of my twisted mind dealing with my emotions driving my heart forces. 
Maledictions of a curse illusion my heart lurks for his affection.
I sit patiently without delay or difficulty to hear his lullaby to me.
My heart as a pariah an outcast of desire, forever I will be a wallflower.
Tears drown my insides remembering his goodbyes multiply, invasion of his lustful infestations.
Left behind with a broken lullaby once again, the record plays.
Deceived by another fantasy, who is this man that haunts me?
He knows just what to say because he knows what I have been missing,
for that love and affection.
I crave a lullaby I will sing this to my grave.
If he could truly love me as he sings, my heart will forever play his beat.
However, I have yet to hear this man speak the words of love to me.
His actions leave me lost with defeat. The words that he breathes simply not meant for me.
My heart will be his beneficiary who holds the key to the woman he will meet.
By the time, I am done with the lullaby the tears will have made the ink subside.
Temporarily insane an illusion these words became.

Just Look

She had the world in her eyes yet you could see through
A windowpane leading to a brick wall.
All I wanted was my notions, passions to ring true
Through her voice, lips, lust, despite myself I fall.
I can hear her haunting voice still in my head.
I can feel her fingertips flowing intertwined with mine.
The smell, scent, sadness lingers still in bed.
I could have seen it coming, she gave me a sign.
Yet to have and to hold, she inquired.
Despite myself, I inquired as well;
Nothing held, nothing had is what's transpired.
I can only blame me, too easily I fell.
Yet, here I stand, open-book.
She HAS the world in her eyes, if she'd just look.

Like the frightened Jackrabbit, I run away from Love

Jump up and down like a jackrabbit
running through meadows
running from what?
Could it be heartbreak,
a venemous snake that hides in the grass,
hiding with fangs ready to pierce the tender skin
upon the tight, bronze flesh of everyday life?
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye now!
I need a vacation a long way away from the faceless smiles
and ignorance of young girls, who don't look at you,
who don't show you love and respect.
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye now,
as jumping spiders hop everywhere, crawling eight legs around me
my soul black like carcoal, but my heart still beating
slower this time, not like the days before
and like the jackrabbit running from anything and everything,
I run to seek love and vanish away from the empty voids
that people call, their souls.
Recording a film with no tape,
talking to a woman you love, but not having the guts to tell her how you really feel
Jump my boy, like a jackrabbit, take my advice
tell her before she leaves
turns down the endless avenues of endless dark love
the trees grow taller, taller than you
and you sit there feeling away yourself die, missing out in life.
I cannot see you lose your love.
Say it, say it, Say it!!! Tell her! Tell her! Build the guts up!
Build up the courage, tell her how you feel. Take her by the hand and never say goodbye! Never say goodnight, stay with her till the flight comes in the morning
of the first rays of sun shine through your dorm room take her and love her!
Do not be like me, the jackrabbit! I see no happiness
Reading poetry it makes me sad,
to write of others falling in love and I never finding the one.
People tell me, you'll find yours, have hope
but I am a frightened little jackrabbit
who flees from sounds of deep emotions, not having courage to fall in love,
not building the guts up to tell her how I really feel.
She walks alone, I find my oppertunity and sing my love song
She smiles and moves on,
please tell me I cannot fight anymore.
All I have to say is Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
I need a vacation
to go to some sandy beach on an island of love
and write and write and write, the same poetry that depresses me
but makes you all fall in love with words!
Fiction about love stories, please kiss me
Blue eyed death comes, plays a game of chess with me
I bet twenty, he bets my soul
Kiss me death, the only love I'll ever get,
besides my poet friends who kiss my ass
Listen to my heart, truely, I don't write of beauty
I write for the sorrow soul, the fleeing jackrabbit
running away from love.....

The Drug in Me is You

The drug in me is you,
Our love is new,
Your love is like,
A medicine for me,
When I'm sad it makes me happy,
It's impossible to be depressed,
When I'm around you,
Your love is my addiction,
Addictions are bad,
But my addiction to you,
Is my everything,
You keep me alive,
Most people need,
Artificial drugs to get high,
All I need is your love to get to cloud nine,
The fact that I get to call you mine,
Keeps me alive,
If I lose your love,
I'll go into withdrawal,
And slowly die,
So never stop loving me,
The drug in me is you,

L O M L Always

The thought of her smiling gave me faith
From when we were little we bathe
My mother and her mother is best friends
They both took care of us and gifts they send
We pulled each others hair
And she was always quick to dare
When I smiled at her she knew it was no good
She learned to pull me up and she understood
I just wanted her attention and that she gave
She knew it in her heart love was my slave
From when we were a child with full of energy I had my way
She was the one who was my guide and she did not push me away
When I saw her cry one day and her eyes was so sad
I gave her a flower and I smiled at her and made her glad
When some one special leaves her heart
I sat by her and never wanted to depart
She is the love of my life always
She is the one who gave me my hope through out my days
So I gave her my heart and love from within
And I did not make it thin
I stood by her side since I was a child
I gave her my support when we were wild
She knew who I was and I let her go the distance
I did not hate her or give her resistance
My mother and her mother are great friends and their virtue will never end
Because of their love they both trusted us to live our ways to transcend
So my childhood friend was my best friend, and now my wife
She new it from the start that we part of each others life

Ex-Best Friends

Two people have broken their friendship ties because of either a disagreement or he or she has found out that his/her boyfriend/girlfriend had an affair with his or her best friend of one too many years. This type of betrayal has taken its toll on all people since day one. It seems that this friendship wasn't enough for him or her, especially when this guy chose this girl over her best friend and this girl has chosen this guy over his best friend. Why these people aren't best of friends anymore is because for one, his girlfriend or her boyfriend cheated on him or her with his or her best friend and for two, they've gotten themselves in a lot of compromised situations. It breaks the hearts of every human being just thinking about it. He or she, of all people, should know that they've been the best of friends since kindergarten and/or elementary school. So now that these people are no longer friends, thereby being "ex-best friends," I guess he or she has no choice but to move on with their lives. These people have broken ties from each other, eventually trying to rebuild them. But even if he or she has betrayed his or her best friend, one should be seriously forgiven for all the misdeeds he or she's done: trying to take his or her girlfriend or boyfriend, leaving him or her hanging, everything. These two people are best friends and they're all they've got. But the sad thing about two people being ex-best friends is that not only are they not talking to each other anymore, they've humiliated each other publicly and personally. So, if that's the way these two people want it and they want to cut off communication with each other, well, then two ex-best friends (guys and girls) have no choice but to wish them the best of luck and hoping that they'd forgive each other in the near future.

babe dove

All of ma life I was dying for a touch like yours.

Then u made that a reality,

U held me in ya arms,

As warm as ya touch,

ya arms were.

U Gave me a sweet tender kiss,

These made me feel at home.

 Because home is where the heart is.

Now this is where I wan spend the rest of ma days.

I don't wanna loose ya touch again.

I will hold u so dearly

And love u with all my might

Because with u I can finally b myself again


It feels like the doves have been set free,

So they can fly in the sky nd sing sweet melodies.

But the baby dove will come back,

For it knows that this is home,

Where it belongs

Like the morning breeze,

 which opens up the flower's petals

As they release the sweet scent of freedom nd love.

I will be there to grab the love nd freedom brought back by the baby dove,

Nd we will live by that for the rest of our days,

I will take ya hand nd keep u warm al night,

and when eva u need me,

all u have to do is call ma name,

nd I will b there to do that u desire.

For I know u are my empire,

Nd it will put a smile on ya cute face,

A smile always accompanied with warmth, truth and love,

I will always be there

To shower ya with love.


If m nt there to answer,

Do not cry for me,

For the Mississippi is already overflowing with water,

Ya tears will make it worse.

Be hopeful for my return,

For I will always b back for u,

Cos I will never abandon u,

I will forever b wit u


I have always wished and desired .

Being with u is a dream come true,

I will give ma all for u to be happy,

because happiness is all I want and desire for you....

Please smile....

Her Face

Her Face was perfection, Still see it everywhere
The beauty in her eyes, Please forgive my stare
Though to confess my love, 
Oh no, I wouldn't dare...
So I'll just keep thinking of her, But it's just not fair

Her Face won't go away, So engrained in my mind
This girl was different, Unlike any other I'll ever find
Oh how the two of us, 
How our lives could've aligned...
So now, to everyone else, My heart is blind

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face comforts me, Holds me tight and dear
Takes me to another world, A new frontier
I'm dreaming where she loves me so much, 
That part is clear...
But as I awake, Just shed another tear

Her Face and her love, I won't ever forget
Lust for her will remain, Lips will get wet
I'll be reminded of her, 
At each days sunset...
And I'll remember everything, From the first day we met

But she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face is the sunshine, A universal light
With it's soul and it's passion, It was quite a sight
Oh how just to see her, 
Brought me such delight...
But here I am all alone now, Another late night

Her Face will surely lift someone up, With unconditional love
So what will come of me, Can I rise above?
Without Her Face, 
I'm unsure thereof...
Because see, out of my mind, to her, I'll never shove

And she'll never know,
Just what I would've done to be with her!
That I'd gladly travel through time and space
Just to appreciate her beauty,
And wake next to Her Face

Her Face, I see it every night, In my dreams
Where everything will all align, Oh how it seems
We're walking together... 
Hands together, Along the forests blue streams

Her Face ignited feelings, Things I've never before felt
Just got to play the hand, The cruel hand I was dealt
I will always have my writing, 
To continue to dwell...
On a lost love to whom one day, I would've knelt

That make me shy

When someone admires someone-
When the words of admiration-
And the sense of praise-
Are real one-
Without lies-
It oscillates a wave-
A wave of unseen effect-
Then there I say-
I feel shy-

I like your love

I like your love
It's pure, it's innocent
and I don't think I've seen this before

You replenish my reserves before it's necessary 
you lift my wings up and 
make me superior to my adversary 
Creatively providing the exact amount of 
what I need to go another day
I like your love
and for as long as you'll have me I'll stay

You make me comfortable in my space
What she share cannot be replaced
with any other type of love
be it artificial or tainted or lustfully blatant 
Those illusions don't exist because
we found this love and we claimed it

I cherish those nights when I scratch your head
When you sit between my thighs and I twist your dreads
We become an us that is so pure
that the spring waters question the purity of it's source
I like your love - it's a divine force

Ringing bells of my heart

Hi guys go through my new poem based on "Ringing bells of my heart"

Enlighting the heart,
Tantalizing by the glimpse of your's.
With an iota of hope,
I stay tuned in dreams of your's.
Eagerly waiting for it to resolve, my admiring beauty.

Amorously entangling You in my arms.
Apple of my eyes, Ohh my beauty charm. 
My soul always want to ignite with the fire of your love.
Hey my laurel-cherry, my blissful lady,
Will you marry me??

Majestic presence of yours,
And my soul is filled with essence.
Visions of your gloriousness, tending to soak my heart,
lustrously shining, Ohh my glittering stone.
You are a Melted cream on the walnut brownie of my heart.

You are the golden jewels of my heart.
Your plugged in soul of diviness, in the socket of my heart.
Can You  please Solve the puzzle of my life,
Because Pragmatically I am in love with you!!

My Nest

Love is my nest.
It holds me
where all the world I see.
It saves me
from the ground
which my soul will never meet.

Up in a forest tree
hunters scattering in threes
they'll never catch me
I have love.
I am perfectly happy.

relaxed I am
I do not stress
for there isn't life
without my nest.

who cares what's below?
I am above.
love is my nest
My nest is my love.

Between soul and body

Why you seem sad?
How is for this moon to sadden?
Why pearls pour down from your eyes?
As the raindrops
What is the secret?
What is the matter?
What is the avail of sadness?
And we are hanging in ropes of the sin
And between rope and gallows
An orphan friendship
And between me and you
A new world
Between my eyelash and tears
Painful memories
My lady!
Between city and city
Long distances
Thousand barriers
Thousand souls immigrating
Thousand temples
Thousand priests
Thousand knights
Thousand nights
Thousand devils
And between heart and heart
Farness and yearning
Thousand mercies
Thousand pulses
Thousand love
Thousand addresses
Thousand words
Thousand lies
Thousand candles
And between eye and eye
Hidden Language and dialogues
Thousand tears
Thousand roses
Thousand tones
Thousand winks
Thousand whispers
Thousand touches
Thousand kisses
But between soul and body
One life.............One life.....

You Are the One

She lays in his arms
he asks her what's wrong
the silence you keep
and the smile you fake
I know that something's on your mind
She says i don't understand
how someone like you
could love me the way you do
and he says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

they sit down for dinner 
he says it's been so long since we've been together
and there's something that I have to say
he gets on one knee and pulls out a ring
I cant't imagine why you're here to this day
but I hope there is not coming our way
and she says

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

the preacher speaks
God's words does he say
Faith has brought us to this day
they look in each others eyes
and only they can see

You are the one
that makes my heart beat 
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
you are the one
that makes my hands shake 
you're my whole life babe
you make me feel so whole
so don't underestimate 
what you do for a wounded soul
I looked everywhere for someone to save me 
and finally 
you are the one

no one else was there for me
no one else stopped my heart form bleding
only you can make me feel this way
only you can find my true smile
among the hopeless and the broken
you are the one that saved me from it all

you are the one
that makes my heart beat  
that completes me
never look down upon your soul
I looked everywhere
for someone to save me
and finally
you are the one

thank everything 
In this beautiful world
That made for me
you were there for me
you are the one

You do not expect me I am going to describe the stands
Or the moon that is reflected on the river's water
Or the ghostly tribes running along Winnibigoshishi Lake,
Up to the Shakopee and down to the Sioux City,
But the holdings and the last fragrances
Thatt have been grown along my Mississippi Nights.

Since my childhood, no shadows, no scarlet
Has been broken, and back I go:
I was five years old, teeny and dark, so beautiful around my mother's arms,
All proud and bough, and I sung all summer
As I was watching my Mississippi Nights.

Long tales as they had been told through the stripped dance 
And drowsy learning, yet it already has been  told by wrinkled faces,
And by those toothless mouths, that arisen sun has gone,
In such fashion of pain and smoke,
But no one could tell me after the long ceremony
How beautiful and still my Mississippi Nights.

From the South to the North; from Granite Falls to
Prairies Island, I knew every stone and leaf, the flavor
Of the smokes and shine, the cute young Indian girls
Who were best known, that by June 
I fell and hit -- even though I was skinny and dumb --
Every girl in delight but there was nothing like than my Mississippi Nights.

As a man now so unique and coward!
From whom I have got no Indian Blood Left,
Princely I bent. Not to risen against the Great Spirit
Even perhaps by pain and love I should say
But I was still looking at myself through my Mississippi Nights.

Graceful and healthful to the tradition I call you too my strong boy.
Along with my Indian woman, now fifty-two, and caring spring she has before;,
Through the lower Sioux, and the higher St. Cloud and beyond,
And somewhat south and north, I must demand
To myself to see once more my Mississippi Nights.

Our First Time

Time's at a standstill 
as I find myself lying 
here next to you...

Contemplating what 
to do next, I'm a bit 
nervous this being 
our first time.

I gotta make sure 
the mood is right,
that this something 
you wanna do.

As I look into your 
pretty eyes, I can't 
help but fantasize 
of how it would be...

Loving you so 

I'm waiting in
anticipation to
undress you...

Take my time 
making love 
to you.

I Wish to be here with you

Imagine one night alone in a bed,
I that would no longer call my own.
All I would be able to feel is your body
interwined with mine, with nothing but
these satin sheets to harbour our soft
pressed skin.

You will rest your head on my
favourite pillow,
My face will be buried in your flower
scented neck.
With every touch, I will move in closer.
With every kiss, our hearts will beat faster.

My fingers will travel through the depths
of your hair,
As you allow my lips to graze every
inch of your skin.

It will be perfection none the less,
And if perfection were to exist,
This would all be incredibly true.
But as I lie on this empty bed & tend
to this scarving heart,
I can only Wish to be here with you....

why is it

why is it when i look in your eyes,
i see the love burning inside me.
why is it when you hug me,
the world melts with us.
why is it when you leave ,
i can't find myself.
why is is when you say bye,
it seems like forever.
why is it when the phone rings,
i answer just to hear if it's your voice.
why is it when you don't call,
i wonder what you are doing.
why is it that i can't breathe , 
whenever i think about you.
why is it that i cant speak ,
whenever i talk about you.
why is it when i'm around you,
you want to walk away.
why is it when i hug you,
you don't feel the same.
why is it when you look into my eyes,
you just see a girl looking back at you.
why is it when you leave,
you leave to be with her.
why is it when you say bye,
you say hello to her.
why is it when my phone rings,
it's not you.
why is it when i call you,
you don't answer.
why is it when i ask what you think about me,
you say that i'm just cool.
why me, why you,
i don't know yet but i'm hoping you can find the love i have for you and hope one day that love would turn into something more than meets the eye...

If Love

If love was a river

I would pour you
an ocean.

If love was a planet

I would give you a

If love last forever

Then forever is not

When you feel
how we feel...

Love means more 
to the heart.

If we love to be loved.

Then the feeling is 

A feeling incredible...

Magnificent, beautiful.

Here Lies the Problem

Here Lies the Problem I can’t believe it! I did it again! Once more I told the truth! Each and every time I desire to disguise Something that should not be told, I end up in a deep dark hole. This is not a place I wanted to be right now. My vision is restricted to only a frown. From here on out, I swear I’ll be a devout disciple of the deceiving arts. She was my girlfriend, Up until just now. We just broke up. Two years gone down the drain. All because of a stupid claim That turned out to be true. She asked me if I had any clue, Whether or not her dress looked good. My response to her was complete truth, The dress was too long, She was bound to trip, and any guys looking at her would dip their heads to look between her armpits. After that comment, she waved it aside. She decided that it was the best that she could possess. (Though in her defense, she was hard-pressed to find a small enough dress) And who would have guessed, that all the other girls were dressed in their absolute best Form-fitting gowns and floral crowns. She cried aloud in distress and bowed her head to look at her dress. She then turned around and tripped into my arms. In the process, she set off the fire alarm. Mayhem followed shortly after. It turned out to be an utter disaster. Now it is one day that has passed, And she just told me our relation is in the past. I can’t believe that I told her the truth and left. I Didn’t Lie Because it Would Have Hurt More...

An End to Aloneness

In my life I often feel I am alone; alone in my thoughts, alone in my musings, alone in my day-to-day movements and unsatisfying activities. I move like a ghost through hallways and down sidewalks, unnoticed and, at times, gratefully so. 
I do not wish to be eternally alone. I long for togetherness. But despite this desire for a real connection, I find myself regularly retreating from that temperamental beast that is human interaction. 

“Come on now, sweetheart. Don’t lower your head. Don’t look away. Look up! Smile at someone! No! Don’t go back into your bedroom. Don’t lock the door! Why are you doing this?” my brain will plea. 

I can’t help myself. Aloneness is comfortable. In being alone, I don’t have to worry about anyone but myself. I don’t have to please anyone else. I can think anything I want, wear anything I want, listen to anything I want, and laugh at anything I want. 

And still there remains that nagging desire to be loved and wanted and needed by somebody. I do not know the feeling of being truly desired. I do not know what it is like for someone to crave my company, my smile, my kiss, or my touch. 

                                                                              But I would like to…

I cannot make someone love me or like me or want me in some primal way. It may hurt, but I cannot make that handsome boy want to hold my hand or brush my hair back behind my ear. I can only struggle on. I can only work within myself. I can only try every God damn day to hold my head up, keep my eyes fixed ahead, a give the world the best smile I have. I and I alone can bring myself out of the safety of my bedroom and into the bright world that lies beyond that locked door. 
I often find myself alone with nothing more than my thoughts and the ever-strong glow of a computer screen. But no longer will aloneness be the constant in my life. It is true that never having known the caress of a man’s hand on my thigh doesn't make me any less of a woman, but I fear that if I stay confined within myself much longer I will begin to become less of a human. A flower cannot grow if it retracts its leaves and petals every time it feels the warmth of the sun or the kiss of a gentle spring rain.  
And I want to grow. I want to grow so tall and blossom so big and beautifully that every place on earth is touched by my shadow at some point in the day. And I will grow. I will push myself and share myself with the world, and finally
know the closeness and comfort of love and honest, unabashed companionship.

The Love of My Life


With me came a philosophy
In my great mind of love, lust and christosophy
Believed everything before now to be a deal
Never for once considered love so real
Then I met you, everything felt so real
Everything before now goes against my will.

When I first gazed into your eyes
I felt a glow that nearly burnt my eyes
With my desires surging so quick
I said, this will never have to end so quick
I started using every special strategy
In order to conquer your willful strategy;

Touching you raises my blood so high
Your touching me turns my mind on the nigh
With a passionate kiss that erases every numb
Want to confess the feelings but I went suddenly dumb
Thus, fate has brought us together
Loving each other forever will keep us together.

Yes! I have said it
Yes! You have heard it
I can’t say it in any other way
Because nobody will take our love away
I swear to respect you with all sincerity
Swear to love you till eternity.

Te amo Preciado:

True Love Pushed Away

Thinking back to the day  
I thought we would never part 
Then suddenly my life would change
Going through a terrible time
My mind would drift away
Parts of life I needed to rearrange 
Although my mind was not alert
By my side you would always stay 
Even as my heart slowly drifted away 

I chose false friends over true love
A love I will never find again
During this time feeling so far away
I made this world my world
Only caring about myself
Thinking I wanted to be alone
You never gave up on our love
A love that I did not show
Again you stayed at my side
I continued to push our love away
For this I will always pay
Pay with this terrible pain

It has been so long 
I realize  the mistakes made
I Never meant to hurt you
I was consumed with myself
I Know that I was wrong
Still you mean so much to me
Now I see you with someone else
I pretend that I don't care
Inside I'm hiding every tear 

Sitting by myself
Thinking of you and the times we had
Our song is played on the radio
"And if I can't have you right now
I'll wait, dear"
My life is filled with regret

I pushed true love away
Everyday I look to the sky 
A tear is cried and I ask myself, why?

Even to this day

even to this day,i can still hear your voice,
your beautiful sweet voice,racing threw this place,
even to this days i remember who you are,
it kills me inside,knowing your gone so far,
i repeat our conversations and that only makes me cry,
some times it makes me laugh,you were always so silly,
even to this day i keep the heart you gave me,it still new full of feeling,
it still contains the date we created this love,
you left so much in my life,foot steps with a memorie behind it,
And here i am,still beating my self up,i close my eyes and 
.make sure i dont breath,
i really need a friend,oh thats right you never have time,not
even for me,
even to this day, i carry more than what i ever gave,
that is acully wrong,i gave more than what this words 
will ever make you strong,
i remember i promise you the moon the sky the stars,
well here i am holding the moon like a ring,
pulling the sky like ballons,
and having the stars together like flowers,
even to this day i remember who you are,
and like the promis i made,
ill creat a world with just you and me,just us,
even to this day i cry myself to sleep,
than i tell myself im all alone,
loenlyness became my best friend,
even to this day,i wish i could go back,
and say something to does silent phone calls we had,
even to this day,this end makes me sad.
it makes me fear,not just pain but also tears.

The mind and the heart

The mind and the heart are two complex things One speaks in logic while the other just sings But here I sit at the dawn of this day Wondering which of mine to listen to and obey My mind says I'm losing her and she won't return But in my heart for her I strongly yearn I don't know what to do or even what I should say Can I go back or do I beg her to stay These feelings inside they scare me to hell They ring around through me just like a big bell They resonate, duplicate and fill me to the top Till all I can do is grab my head and shout stop But I think it matters not at the end of the day I know I must return to her anyway These feelings I have they are ooh so strong It seems they will go on for a very very long (time) And if she should want me to stay away I think then instead for the rest of my days I will think of her and of what she has done She has taught me that she is the only one I just hope to god that what we had hasn't gone For I would scour the earth until it was found And if she might find it in her heart to take me back I want to be with her and never look back.

With Mellow Eyes She Came

With mellow eyes she came
Across the vacant lot,
With skin so fair and shining hair,
Ten years old and smiling.
I was only nine.

We were neighbors 
Friends, neighbors, sidewalk skaters
We climbed a tree in mother's yard
And spoke of Ike and Mamie.
I never fell from that pear tree
But slipping some I fell for her.

Time passed and the year 
Between us was a curse;
She passed through school ahead of me
While cheering teams of running boys,
A charming girl beyond dispute.
I thought I'd tasted love.

Like every careless youth 
whose clock is barely ticking
ripened fruit was there to grasp,
though just beyond my reach.

That smiling girl was never cruel
She grew into a woman
I moved to California in my youth
And landed in a tiny town
Upon the coast of ocean.

There is something about girls and ball
That really cannot be fathomed
We love the game, we love the girls
We fall and we are smitten
Running up and down the court
And only think of winning.

Women are little girls that grow
Tall and comely figured.
Little boys, they grow up too.
Fools they are and fools they stay
While women grow much wiser.

If I could live my life again
Would I be any wiser?
My comfort came from books and girls
And guitars playing soft sweet tunes
With singing running over.

Another girl with mellow eyes
Came to me one dawning day
The sun came out, the clouds dispersed.
We talked and knew that we 
Had found our lives entwined. 

I looked for love, I looked for art
I sought some understanding
The love I found was in my wife
The art in understanding
She was more than me for sure
And more than that I bound to her.

The years flew past, there was no stop
No going back, no turning left
No halting of the clock.
We walked along the path of life
We tried to gauge our feelings.

We walked through the grass,
We talked until dawn,
We drove the back roads,
We slept intertwined.

Everything I needed then
Was there just for the taking
We held the hand, we met the eye
No intimacy was lacking
We never were apart until by fate
She faded out of sight.

Details | Rhyme | |


When I'm with you
I slip away
Dream all day in black and grey

Hands held tight 
No worries or fights
Cuddle so close
All threw the night

When I'm with you
I glo so bright
Not a single tear 
or sigh in sight

I want you forever
Would that be alright?

Together forever
No end in sight.

What are all these tales we’re supposed to romanticize?
Through all that indifference and hatred,
Soon the length of our armor will make us drown
Can’t you see we can’t support our own weight?
Ripping the circle apart and sewing it back on,
It’s not inhuman, is just impossible…
No more reason to stay in the fire long enough
To get out is to be free…

Complain about the shadows who were faster than us
Now, but back then you gave them wings to fly,
Both alone in the dark communicating by whispers
And at the nineteenth time all I still hear is “Why…”
Were we the heroes we were supposed to incarnate?
Or were we a pale reflection of what everyone sees…
Erasing all the butterflies and roses in one’s thoughts,
Freedom became an answer, but it wasn’t supposed to be…

Are we lost in what never will make sense again?
Close enough to whisper but never again close to kiss,
This was never as much as mine as it was pretending to be,
So long, the wings are on fire even in our dreams…

One step, dripping blood, the door opens,
Step after step, one leaves the room in the dark,
Soon enough, the door should be closed,
The blood is not a footstep, is a battle scar…

Rope forced, skin hurt in this invisible trial,
Long loved, soon burnt, for nothing at all,
Impossible to see, unworthy just to say “it’s enough”,
More than just to hate, is time again to fade in touch…

Bled enough to die, drank enough to cry, but still lived once,
Talked enough to lie, failed enough to try, and still does…

Freedom may be not a wish, but it’s a reason to fly away…
Can’t you see that we’re alright and that it’s time to leave it in the shade…

I Love You

Theme: chance meeting

I never really knew you,
You were just another friend,
But when I got to know you,
I let my heart unbend,

I couldn't help past memories,
That would only make me cry,
I had to forget my first love,
And give love another try,

So I've fallen in love with you,
And I'll never let you go,
I love you more than anyone,
I just had to let you know,

My feelings for you will never change,
Just know my feelings are true,
Just remember this one thing,
I will always love you,

Where Wild Violets Grow

Scribbling these verses,
caressing your bare back,
simple rhymes,

Scribbling verses,
sprinkling odes to fragrant promises,
your smile lightens the burdens,

Scribbling verses,

through the streams of my mind,

I Envy You

I watch your hand upon her hips
And as you place a smile on her lips
You kindly seal it with a kiss,
 Holding the girl I dearly miss.

You are fair of face and statuesque as art,
I am but meek of will and dark of heart.
You Forgive and Forget
I forget to forgive,
With eyes closed, her sins, I clearly relive.

As long as the stars are bright,
As long as the seas are blue.
As long as she loves you right,
I’ll Envy You…

Santeria Love Potion Number 9

after all those sleepless nights
i figured it out.
I'm not sick without you
I don't even miss you.
a piece of our sex is stuck in my sinuses;
like a virus is.

i can't remember how it felt to be inside you,
but i can taste it when i spit.
Your sweat a carnal vinaigrette,
lips  like mandarin oranges swimming in rose-water.
Soufflé sighs and martini moans.
 pallet full, stomach empty. 

Your face is a white blur, no black, maybe  grey
all these are too colorful.
You're a shapeless cloud of vapor
Refracting headlights on winding lonesome  roads in my mind.
Au' du recklessness, 
an earthy mix of lavender and salamander slime.
lakewater and sublime sing-alongs.
santeria love potion number 9.

We'll be

We'll be forever building gold mines
from scrap metal and taking
recycled energy to cosmic levels
through third eye

We'll go un-noticed until the heavens turn 
or if our chakras are not aligned 
constantly diverting negative thoughts 
through our meditative lights

We'll build a sandcastle from determination
and live life on the edge,
fulfilling divine order and witnessing creation,
living in the now and staying ahead

We'll tip the earth off it's axis
and trick subconscious mind states into submission
You can catch us in the wind transcending counter reactions
Bi-passing illusions of circumstances 

We'll have an abundance of the maximum
Enough love energy for all who attract our path
We'll be the ones in the light
asking for nothing in return but peace
at last

Why my heart ponder

Why my heart ponder?
I, your offender..
What I gave?
Dark love in a cave...

I promised you a thousand lands
Didn't give enough sands...
Changing me and my love,
Hiding behind the black scarf..

Hiding me I couldn't speak,
Feared losing in a streak.
This was my only reason
But turned my passing season..

Now I rattle,

As a foolish cattle
Leaving your land and cheese,
Yet to find me some peace...

I Hate It

I Hate It

I hate it when you’re acting like a brat,
I hate it when you don’t care.
I hate it when you’re screaming like a cat,
I hate it when you’re not being fair.

I hate it when things go crazy between us,
I hate it when we don’t talk.
I hate it when you say nasty things and cuss,
I hate it when instead of listening you mock.

I hate the way your friends back you up,
I hate the way they hate me when they should not.
I hate the way you lie a little and start acting like a pup,
I hate the way people look at you when you dress up hot.

I hate the way we make up and make sweet promises,
I hate the way we break them and start fighting again.
I hate the way you don’t respond to my kisses,
I hate the way we have to do this every now and then.

Never Take Hate Outside

When you're hurt inside,
And there's no where to hide,
And there's no one on your side,
And it's killing your pride,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is chocking,
The heavy words never spoken,
The things that hurt you inside,
When love has died,
Never take hate outside,

When your heart is gone,
From being alone,
And it beats a solemn tone,

When you're cold inside,
It's only a short ride,
Never take hate outside

Always and Forever

Here I sit your running through my mind.
I'm laying on this bed just trying to kill the time.
I often think of your beautiful smile. 
The thing I haven't seen in awhile. 
I wonder if you and I will stand  the sands of time?
I'm so thankful that you are mine. 
Are you willing to go to the end of the line? 
Not knowing what were going to find. 
Will you grab my hand not knowing where were going to land? 
Will you close your eyes and stay by my side? 
So we can start this unforgettable ride. 
But here I can't stay. 
So baby take my hand come on come with me.
Lets start this new life you and me.
Well be alright you will see.
We can only grow from all of this.
So trust me babe come here give me a kiss.
Get over here climb up on my lap.
Lets go back to us lets close this gap.
Your my lady your my love.
Your everything ive ever dreamed of.
I'm glad I laid down that ring.
Cause me and you are the real thing.
Only god knows Ive gave you my whole heart.
That scares me to death cause I don't want us to fall apart.
You and me were love at first sight.
Everyone watched and said yeah right.
Your the light to my life.
Your the only one I wanna call my wife.
I want you now and forever.
For use to part no not never.
I want us to grow old and die together and truly say we were together always and forever.

If Only I could, I Will

If only I could tell the sun to stand still to stall the date of your going, I will; 
If only I could tell the wind to stop moving that not a thing shall be able to fly, I will; 
If only I could turn every deserted place a green pasture so you would be exploring no more, I will; 
If only I could make every insult to sound like a joke so that one won't be hurt but laugh, I will; 
If only I could turn my every thought into an immortal song that without trending you'd be inspired to sing, I will; 
If only I could literally show how much love I have for you by physically opening my heart, I will; 
I could only wish: IF ONLY – because it will never will. 

Yet, the most I can do is wish: 
That I can hold back my tears at the date of your going; 
That the wind shall be its fairest for you to have a safe flight; 
That the place you are heading is the greenest of the pastures anyone would hope to settle; 
That you will be spared of any kind of mockery and insult from a discriminating crowd; 
That you'll be free from stress, fatigue, and discomfort; 
That mine thoughts that you ignored maybe a line of your favourite song; 
That the heart of the one you will find to love shall have a love, so true, like this love I have for you; 

Finally, if I shall be lucky to reach my old age, I hope to have the same consciousness even in  my deathbed, that before giving up my ghost, I still can make a wish – a wish that you never had to go so that I would had spent a lifetime with you . .... ...

You were all I'd ever dreamed,
My past loves untied;
You were my destiny,
That night you passed by.

Our love was set in stone,
You would be my girl;
You'd turn around and see,
Give it a whirl.

But you just kept walking,
Down the road.. didn't even notice me;
This love affair was only in my head,
A dreamer's fantasy.

Its going to take some time now,
Only God knows how long;
For Him to mend my broken heart,
And make me strong.

I was trying to get over you,
When my dream girl walked by;
Oh baby the way you look at me,
You know you make me high.

But you just kept walking,
Down the road.. didn't even notice me;
This love affair was only in my head,
A dreamer's fantasy (3x)

A Night with You

O, how I have dream't this night would come.
Me and you, and you and I together;
in the same room,
on the same night.
The night is young, and so are we.
Tell me all your dark secrects,
as I paint you a picture.
Kiss me on the cheek,
Bite me on the lip,
Give me a little slap,
Just to let me know, you're still here.

Let's watch a movie,
in the dark, when it's night.
Cuddle up together, under the virgin, white sheets and thick, warm blankets,
as we kiss each other.
Wet, sloppy and romantic kisses back and forth.
Love me, for I love you;
Kiss me, for I kiss you;
Hug me, for I hug you;
Hold me tight and never let go.
Pray with me that this night together shall never pass.

Come into my arms, and let us sleep awhile.
Dream of loving one another in a flowery meadow, over the hillsides of lovely skies.
Come let us go for a midnight walk.
Along follow over yonder, with the freaks, who sit on park benches,
sleeping their hangovers away.

Come babe, sit in this grassy field with me.
Let us count the stars in the moonlit, night sky.
I steal a kiss from you,
as the shooting stars blaze rapidly across, the purple night sky.
Quick my dear, make a wish!

I do not wish, for my wish has already come true,
and that is to be with you.
To Love you, and hold you,
and sing you to sleep, while you sleep off the night's adventures,
in my comforting arms.

Our Poem

Tonight we will start our poem
We will grab ahold of each other, writing love letters.
We will kiss, letting the words flow from our mouths
We will hug, giving the stanzas room to roam
We will embrace each other, giving rhythms to rhymes
We will love each other, giving meaning to letters on a page

My Love

my love...

my love blossoms amidst the thunder

across the oceans and the beyond the seas

my love reaches out and touches

the moments of bliss as the loneliness flees

my love is simple
with profound feelings of yearning desire

my love rages within
the furnace of this aching heart's unquenchable fire

my love basks in the warmth of the knowledge

that in the spring it takes root and it will flower

my love breathes in the light fragrance

of her hair after her warm and delicate shower

my love remembers drowning in her eyes

of those ethereal moments frozen forever more

my love recalls the fleeting ticking of the clock

each minute apart stabbing at my very core

my love she knows I need her so

for she needs me just as much

my love she sprinkles light flourishes of her sensual touch

as my love for her continues to ceaselessly grow

my love reaches down into the crevasses of my of being

my love for her is held onto deep inside

for in the coming of the cold ache of seperation

my love settles between the folds of her heart, for 'tis there that my love for will reside

my love like an eternal dream caresses me in wakefulness and in sleep

and that is the feeling that I shall cherish

a feeling of love that has settled in me 

a feeling so pure and a feeling so very deep...

You Left because of me

You left?
Because of me is it?
It was all my Fault was it?

I did Everything for you to love me,
I did Everything for you to accept me,
I did it all because I love you
But why?How could you?!

You left and break the Promise,
Which you were suppose to not Break it,
Your words were all a Lie was it?
And This is Just a Game then you`ll end it

I was just a Replacement,My Love
and YOU slap it on my Face like how it hurts
I tried and Tried to Move on,
But it still hurts

You were Mad because of a Worthless Lie,
You were mad just like how someone Died
But My Dear,You don`t need to Prove it on me
`cause I know I`m not the perfect one to thee

And Now may I tell you this,
That my Love is never Ending,
Whenever you hurt me
It just makes me love you more...

It makes me Feel heaven to fall for you,
But your life was in hell when I did too
So now I`m leaving and won`t come back
Because you left me Because of me.

be my girl

I don’t know what the future holds
But I need you there
Baby if we’ve got each other
There’s no reason to be scared

I can’t promise you the world
But together we can see it
There’s millions of girls
But you’re the one I want to be with

Baby I only want you
Don’t want anybody else
If it can’t be the two of us
Then I think I’d rather be by myself

Baby why waste time? Why wait?
Imagine my hands around your waist
 Sitting by the fireplace
Me putting a smile on your face

We could travel the world together
Or stay in and cuddle alone
I just care about your pleasure
Together we’ll always be home

I can’t promise you will never get hurt
But I promise I won’t be the one to cause it
Baby let me show you your worth
Run you a bath & cook you a meal when you’re exhausted

Together we can have it all
I’ll be there when you call
I’ll be ready to catch you
When you fall

With me you’ll never be alone
I don’t know what the future holds
But I hope you will be there
Baby let’s start our journey and see where we go

My cursed nightmares

Under the darkened vale within the labyrinth
Of my cursed dreams 
How my wounded heart yearns
As the pages of my history turn
Back to those colourful cherished days 
Now out of reach and so far away.

I dream of my first love Diane
My sweetheart and star filled dream 
Who shaped my future
And made me the man I am.

I'm desperately searching the places
We loved and used to go
And asking people if they know where she is
But no one knows
I know she's near but don't know where
The pain I feel in my heart
Is just too much to bare
I feel lost broken and full of fear
For my soul mate who I loved and breathed for so dear.

Then I awake and it hits me like a bombshell
As reality sets in
It may have just been a nightmare
But she gave me the happiest days of my entire life
I've never really been happy since those days
And I suppose I'll carry my love for her
To my grave.

I and You

 The ink of your red heart
Sips the flowers, 
Besieges the olive 
In the iris of the eyes, 
Flirts the tunes
Hugs the minarets, 
And complains to the night
The sighs of sadness, 
And you are a dream
Asleep in its silence
Under the eyelids …
Has the evening glow of passion
Found no sleep
Under your eyelashes, 
And have not been wounded the eyelashes 
By the tears of rain-laden clouds? 
Who are you? 
I will ask the rhyme
About you, and the arts, 
And the demon of sorrows, 
Are you a lost letter? 
In the lexicon of the centuries? 
Or are you the beginning
For the revolution of madness? 
Your imagination is a cloud
In the darkness of the eyes
And your soul is a talisman
Jailed in my ring…
And my compassionate boat 
Don’t ask me who I am? 
Nor suppose my silence is jest, 
I am the silent call
And a sigh in the last tunes, 
And a silver tear
On your cheek
Flows in rapture…
My planet is premonitions
And my world is doubts, 
And my whisper is poems
Their title …is none, 
And my kiss is sacred, 
Granddaughter of the boughes…
So who am I? 
And who will I be? 
My story is a legend
Inscribed in silence…

I will Die Without Love

There’s no room in my head, it's filled with thoughts of you. I’m alive and yet dead, both are equally true. You are my blood, my breath, my hope, my dream, my love. And your leaving's like death, without heaven above. I’m as pale as a ghost, my heart's drained of its blood. For missing you the most, it has slowed to a thud. How much more must I take, without breath I'll smother? And I endure an ache unlike any other. My future’s disappeared, there’s no way I can cope. For like I always feared, I can't live without hope. I'm far beyond afraid, on the verge of a scream. And I feel so betrayed, I can no longer dream. No one can replace you, that's one thing I'm sure of. And yet it's also true, I will die without love.

our love

our love has come and gone
just like the freshly played melody of our song
though i cannot lie
i will sigh
to you i will say a final goodbye
our love has faded away
like a breeze on a hot summers day
our love has gone out of fashion
and its time to move on
because our love has come and gone
like the faded memory of our song
and with a sigh
to you i say a final good bye

Statuesque Radiance

It was wonderment.
The mesmerizing expression rolled off her tongue in waves. 
To my puzzlement I was in a state of allurement.
Her vibes were sent to me in soothsaying proportions.

It was almost trickery, but I knew where I was going.
To the festivity that arose in marvelous apprehension.
Thoughts intertwined with her perplexity.
Her magnetism pulled me into an eternal trance.   

We floated into an elation of bewilderment.
Bygone indifference; we are one.  
You are my goddess; ravishing, statuesque radiance. 
Purely beautiful with a beautiful mind, heart and soul to match. 

To my amazement I found her within.
She was snuggled in my organism.
Wrapped up in all of my thoughts. 
She was warm.

I was connected with my wizardry.
She brought out the magic in me.
It was a prophecy. 
To be told; never old. 

We are undead together and full of life. 
We are everything and nothing and everything in between.
And we are an incantation of youth. 
We are; limitless. 

Nonesuch bewitchment nor black art or ill will.
This was love as we hither to the schism of bliss.
Away with all devilry; we are galaxies of heavens in our oddity.
I hold you in my hands like a dragonfly who lets me.

My dragon with fire that doesn't burn me.
My butterfly who can hold my weight.
My sea in the snow; my fire in the haze.
My flowers in the dirt; my green in the concrete. 

Sail through my eyes.
Bring me closer to another zenith.
Give me your endless sensual voodooism.
My muse I adore; forever more.

She has taken me to that statuesque radiance.

When you were mine
The stars they shone so bright
I’d hold you close 
It was such sweet delight
To feel your heart
As it beat into my soul
You changed my life
And made me feel so whole

But now you’re gone
I cry so many tears
I'm like a baby
Because you are not here
Just like a river
That rushes to the sea
These tears they flow from me.

What kind a drug are you
So seductive and highly addictive
Just one stroke, one is addicted 
Like an addict I can’t do without you
All you do is dement me	
All I do is dream and crave for you
Yet can’t seem to refrain from you
You turned nights into white nights
Nothing to ponder ‘bout
Only you
Just once

One Last Time

Une dernière fois
Tes lèvres contre les miennes
Une dernière fois
Mes pensées seront tiennes

Une dernières fois
Communiquer avec nos yeux
Une dernières fois
Nos cœurs réunis tout les deux

Une dernière fois
Me sentir vivant
Encore une fois
Tes regards m’enivrant

Car a chaque fois
C’était le même bonheur
Qu’à chaque fois
Quand tu éliminais mes douleurs

Une dernière fois, une dernière fois

Faire ce rêve qui dure toujours
Le beau rêve de l’amour
Ce rêve devenu cauchemar
Ces joies devenues illusoires

Une dernière fois
Penser que c’était vrai
Une dernière fois
Comprendre ce qu’il m’est arrivé

Car cette fois
Je vois ta silhouette s’éloigner
Oui cette fois
Tu vas quitter ma vie

Mais cette fois
Attends un petit peu

Qu’une dernière fois
 Je puisse t’embrasser

Qu’une ultime fois
Je puisse t’aimer

I swear

When the cities sink nightly
In the sea of longing
I swear to drown in your depths

When you sleep
I swear to wander in your dreams

When you laugh!
I swear to melt in your breathes

When you cry!
I swear to freeze in your tears


In your eyes
I swear that silence is full of words

In your heart
I swear that love is full of wishes

In your lips
I swear that perfume is full of kisses

Far of you
I swear that world is full of darks..

You’re my fairytale.
A dream come true.
Your heart soothes my inner scars.
My hand wrapped with yours.
A blanket so warm.
A love so true.
Your name makes me smile.
Your kisses sing me a lovely lullaby.
Your lips soft like a rose.
Gentle like sand. 
My ride or die guy.
Take a bullet for you anytime.
Just us two in this world.
That’s what it feels like.
No more heartbreak.
No more tears.
May not be my first love,
But definitely you are my last love.
They say young love is not forever love.
But we look at them and prove them 
wrong my love.
A time so worth it.
So take my hand.
Dont let go.
We got this.
Just you and I.

So many things are left unsaid
So many things are left undone
So many things are left excused
The feelings I have for you; can never be left unexpressed
Am done needing many things; all I need now is your love and affection
Am so confused on how to express it; don’t want to give you the wrong impression
Right from the start; you smooth criminal stole my heart
Am so stupid for not reporting the theft; guess I don’t want the criminal found
Am strongly assured that the criminal will keep my heart safe; away from other criminals
If walls could talk; they will tell you how happy I am to be your victim.

If this isn’t love; then I need a prophet to prophecy to me what else it is
I am not even half-perfect; but am on a mission of making something else perfect
A perfect love! Brewed from the brewery of imperfection; climaxing beyond perfection
I just want to show you how much I appreciate you; my endless love
Do you even know how much I care about your heart?
Am so dedicated to you; just want to forever be with you
I can’t help the fact that am always thinking of how to make you happy
No matter how strong the wind of tribulation seems to be; I can never give you up
It’s so cold without you baby; I will forever remain at mercy of your warmth body
If walls could talk; they will tell you how desperately I want to always be with you.

If loving you is a sin; I will forever be at the depth of beyond redemption
What in the world can I not do for you? All I want is to always do you right
If am as rich as one naira; I will buy you everything one naira can buy
If I must live, then I must love; you are the one I love now that am living
When I die; I want the world to know that I lived and that I loved you
The moments we shared together is safely treasured in my mind; engraved in my heart
I have taken a deep dive into your heart; don’t care if I drown in the ocean of you love
Even if I lost my mind; I can never stand and watch you burn in any sorrowful fire
Don’t be afraid baby! I am your hero; I am here and I will always be there for you
Listen quiet closely, the walls are talking; they are saying that “I will always love you”.

Dedicated to my love Dannycurrie...
Happy birthday sweetest heart!!!
I love you baby...

Almost Love

Stop and stare as the time stands still. 
The pain hurts, but the silence kills. 

Twisted emotions, this feeling's so strong. 
My body feels weak, but my mind feels headstrong. 

I slip and fall now only to crawl. 
Your eyes told the story like a crystal ball. 

A soft-friendly touch, I feel of your heart.
It's thumping so loud, I'm ripping apart. 

Life makes no sense,this moment so tense.
Contagious emotions are building a fence. 

It tears me down that I can't tear it down.
I've got more to live for, and it's wearing a frown. 

You make my world spin, and you make it all stop.
Goodbyes make it worse, I spin like a top. 

Given no choice but to drive away.
The words left unsaid are too hard to convey.

The click starts to tick, tomorrow comes near. 
I held you so dear that it felt like a year. 

- Yours Truly

Gator Bait Series 1st Cold Snapped

The wind was blowing when she left the city...

I believe it was twenty below...

Where she was going she already knew...

But... first she had things she had to do...

Get rid of the body that was clear....

There were no options, it had to disappear....

The heater was broken and blowing cold air...

She could feel the ice, building up in her hair..

She had cleaned up the blood as best she could...

As she had hit him hard with that log of wood...

All she had asked him, was to light a fire...

To take off the chill in the house....

Do it yourself if you are cold...he snapped

And while you’re at it get me a cold beer...from the fridge..

It was early morning when she finally arrived at the bridge..

This was his favourite fishing spot...

She pushed his body off the pier...along with his ice cold beer..

And suddenly began to shiver and sneeze.....

Oh well, she said...this too shall pass..

When I get to the Florida Keys..

PS..this is the first in a for part 2.."gator bait..the dream "

The Garden

The night air is cool and collective,
Running through my hair and face.
Even when I’m with people, I feel alone
In this cold blooded space.

It’s like walking through a garden
Of all your favorite foods,
But none of which can substantiate
For that one so special mood…

That mood, 
that beautiful frame of mind.  
I only go there with you,
And only you can make it unwind.

I discovered a passion unlike any other
And in my finding I opened a world,
A world I did not know existed.
I’m on cloud nine every time I think of you,
Just the thought of you brings joy to my heart.

This garden holds many beautiful things
Many delightful pleasures,
Many cold nights,
Warm nights,
Difficult frights,
Ecstatic times and unsystematic times!

But they mean nothing to me,
While I’m alone…

Walk with me through this garden.

I Hope You Know I'll Always Love You

I am what you call a hopeless 
But im also a lost lovers cause, my 
heart belongs to another
Yet in my head a love triangle starts 
to form, the girl I love doesn’t love 
She holds the heart to another and 
mine caged to the floor,
She isn’t afraid to fight for what she 
wants, not even when it comes to 
leaving another man torn
Trust me she’s happy, as that boy 
holds her heart ever so close
Seeing what I shouldn’t I smile as I 
wear my blind fold,
Blind to everything around, lifeless 
staring into air
My train of thought running so fast, 
the second I stop you’ll hear a crash
Derailing my hope, for ever finding a 
love so pure & rare
Wishing I could hold the hand of the 
lover who stole my flame,
Wish I could change the last days in 
which we parted ways,
Realizing now that we can never be 
the same
Finally saying it out loud as tears run 
down my face
You stole my happiness, as I walked 
away that day
But it’s because as of what you said 
I guessed I changed,
Now every relationship has just be 
the same,
No one can seem to bring back that 
Because a love likes ours comes 
once in a lifetime
Well at least it does to me,
But I mean you’re happy with who 
your with 
I mean I only wrote this as I heard 
exchanging “I love you” flow from 
each of your lips.

Once Again Yesterday

Often in the spoken word,                                                    
perhaps a long farewell, 
Passion, romance soon to bud,                                                                      
but only time will tell…
Once again yesterday,
and twice before next week,                                                                  
in a simple act of kindness,
or a gift that’s quite unique…
An ode to trenchant dreamers,
matchless lovers from afar…
It’s okay – tomorrow then,
they gaze upon the stars…
Will two star-crossed lovers,
spell bound nonetheless,
spend their lives together…
and be jointly laid to rest?
Some believe the perfect life,
is likely just a myth.
Live and learn - and look again,
for life itself’s a gift….

everything I strived for
I lost 
everything I loved

cause she could only take so much
I give up on givin a f**k
because im lost

I used to think she was right
until I learned 
everyday we'll fight
so now I move on
to a journey to find ms right

Love Endures

Love floats by,


tip-toeing past pain,

leaping through walls,
weakening the barricades,

of the most private heart.

Love settles in,


quietly beyond anguish,

erasing the desolation,
soothing a battered spirit,
enveloping the shivering soul.

Love stays, it is true,

love endures, as do you

Who resembles you

 Who resembles you? 
A drunken night 
Or a jealous star 
A colored full moon 
Or shy cottage
Who resembles you? 
A virgin lark 
Or blond flower 
Who resembles love? 
Believing in you 
Who resembles a soul? 
Living in you 
Who resembles a heart? 
Pulsing for you
Who resembles a shadow? 
Walking beside you 
Who resembles a mirror? 
Reflecting your charm
All narrations of the past were illusion 
Not resembling you 
All butterflies of the world 
Were a tattoo in your hands 
Not resembling you 
All perfumes of the world 
Were a wine in your lips 
Not resembling you........

She is red, a riot, 
Rolling with recklessness and 
Reaping the rewards of passion.

I am carpet blue.
Bubbling with banality, bursting
Boredom with silent fashion.

Colliding in the corridor 
We pace a purple paradox.
We’re her favourite colour.

I haven’t seen love so crazy like my love
We are so madly in love; we make love mad
Here I am asking myself if I have lost my mind
This is faster than I have ever seen or heard
This is love at its peak; enjoying every moment of it
We are so good together; we are the best couple
There is nothing that we cannot do; name it all
Kissing, touching, sucking, caressing like we are acting a pornographic movie
Oh! This is sweet crazy love.

I will always love her just as she always love me
There is no end to this love that we can see
Everything is so perfect; we are climaxing to perfection
I love the look in her eyes when I start to touch her
I can never get enough of her succulent lips
Am her baby; I want to suck her breast all day long
Tickling her nipples makes me want to hold it in my mouth all night long
Whenever she touches me, I loose my sense of reasoning
The things she does to me, am so speechless to say
We are crazy and we love doing crazy things
She is the naughty girl I fell in love with; Am the naughty boy she loves
This is crazy; we are the craziest couple...

Words can not describe how I feel
when you put your arms around me.
When you kiss me, I am whole.
When you tell me that you love me, I still get butterflies.
When you are not with me, I feel empty - 
You bring me so much joy and love 
even when it is tough to deal with me.
You are the sweetest man to me, 
you put everything ahead of you.
You make me smile when i cry, 
laugh when I am angry.
I trust you with absolutely everything
I know you will never hurt me.
You are truly an amazing man.
You are my best friend,

I am not staring

No darling, I am not staring at her curvy hips
Trust me, I am not looking at her luscious lips
No, I am not beckoned by her big brown breasts
Neither am I lusting for her perfect long legs

Her sleeveless, bare-back blouse is nothing
Just like her six foot frame that’s fit for modeling
I didn’t even notice the short skirt she is wearing
Not even her cleavage, shiny bracelet or earring

Who cares if she has spotless, silky-smooth skin
Or that she has a pointed, picture-perfect chin
Baby you better believe me because it is true
You thought I was staring but I was thinking of you

You and I

You and I.


Your heart blazed,
with a warmth of spirit,



soaked in truth.

Your smile burned,
branding me permanently,



enveloping my being.

Your love was complete,
from the depths of your soul,


yet fierce,

bathed in silent knowing.

Your dreams were poetic,
fluttering in the afternoon breeze,
infused with the distilled essence of rhyme.


I squandered your generosity of spirit.

I vainly discarded your priceless poems.

Now I stand,




wasting away,

rotting inside, day by day.

Love Ending With Tragedy

Walking down road of life and 
we're talking. 
Sharing our stories- laughing 
and gawking. 

While expressing the troubles 
that made your day hard- 
A climax interrupted,
The ending was scarred. 

A bridge built to pass, we 
thought it would last. 
Like spilling a glass, our 
moment was vast. 

When all of the sudden- The End of our date. 
A murderous halt- the car 
stopped too late. 

You sniffled your nose, a drunk 
driver dozed...
Then BAM! - Our bodies were 
lifeless in clothes. 

It's noises of sirens we both left 
And a drunk put in cuffs with 
jail on his mind. 

I loved you a lot, but held off to 
I wanted it perfect- the right 
time of day. 

Now I know there was no other 
But to confront this difficult, 
"I love you" cliche. 

Carpe diem, just live like you 
mean it. 
Seize the day, or die like you've 
seen it. 

Every breath allows you the 
To rethink your life- ask her to

Sweet, candy love

How I feel when you promise something

I'm not good for you. 
Broken and unworthy. 
You keep me around and I cannot figure out why. 
You are so amazing, so lively, and so different than I. 

I want to be loved by you. 
I want to hold you. 
But I see you there so happy and so care free... 
It will just hurt you to know the person hidden within. 

The real me. 
Not the smiles you see when we speak. 
Not the laughter we share...
But me. 

A lonely child, with fear in her eyes. 
Scared of the world she was born into and scared of the future she might have if she loses you. 
Do you still want me, knowing the little I have said so far? 
I close my eyes wishing you were here... 

But we all know that is a wish that will never come true... 
And it is okay... 
It is nothing new. 
To me at least it is something I feel each day. 
Wanting what is not in reach... 
Wanting for you to be with me.

And Thats MY Only Fear

What comes with your smile
You Smile to define my style
You cry, here comes your tear
Only thing I do fear.

I love and yes I do care
Want me? And I am there
Longing you, such a creature
Yeah I know will never mature.

Riding on my pacing steed 
Relishing you, moving on speed
Closing my eyes, you are there
And thats my only fear.

Comfort in my arms

As you lay right beside me
Snuggled tightly in my arms
I haven’t got a care in the world

Your sweet smell envelops me
Your soft gentle, skin caresses mine
As warmth is shared, our bodies curled

Stress and worry dissipate
Finding comfort in each other
As our two souls become one

We drift gently off to sleep
As our breathing begin to sync
As if our love has just begun

Waking still in my embrace
Not wanting to leave each other
But we let go all the same

Now we’re off to seize the day
Knowing we will return again
To that comfort we will reclaim

What is this feeling

I don't know how you did it. But I have these indescribable feelings for you. My heart that once just stayed still never pumping anything around, cold black loneliness everywhere in me. Not anymore, not anymore i felt it pump something, something warm, it pumps nonstop now, this warmness is everywhere no more loneliness, its gone. Is this love? Do I feel love? I can't be in love unless you're in love with me or this feeling doesn't mean anything. So tell me do you feel the same?

She was my dream before I could dream,
She is my sun, my moon, my stars.
She’s the air in every breath I breathe,
She is the true Queen of my heart.

She is my warrior princess,
She is each moment of my time,
She’s the crimson coursing through my veins,
She is my art, my prose, my rhyme.

She is my strength to face the world,
She is my sword and shield.
She is my vulnerability,
At her whim, hurt or healed.

She is my missing jigsaw piece,
My half-soul’s one true mate.
She is my morn and starry night,
She’s my destiny, my fate.

She is my very Eden,
Where I’m Adam, she’s my rib,
God’s gift to me right from the first,
My Eve, my cause to live.

It’s her I’ve loved since time’s first dawn,
Yet veiled for years before
That first glance, yes, I knew her face,
And it’s her I’ll love forever more.

True Love Can't Be Made, Bought or Traded

Many call making love, from a physical reaction. As many try to find a loving satisfaction! True love can’t be bought, paid, or traded This is something that shouldn’t be debated! True love is from God, and freely given! His love can change the way you’re livin’! Only God’s love can cleanse the heart from sin! And bring true satisfaction deep within! If it’s “cheap love,” you seek… You can find it! But you’ll end up empty, hurt and blinded! If it’s true love you want. Look no more! Jesus is here... Knocking at your heart’s door! Won’t you let him in? And let his love touch you? He wants to do this. Because he really loves you! He loves you so much, he bled and died! In him, you can be made whole and sanctified! Won’t you accept the love he freely gives? It will bless you each day that you live! By Jim Pemberton

Simply not infatuation

When I first met you 
you were so cute that
my brain just couldn't compute 
so I went mute
 As I stared in awe 
Wanting to know you
Noticing that 
the reason my heart ached was 
 because of you
A girl much more than a pretty face 
I never wanted to make love out of lust
but then I realized 
that it was in you I trust
So I must change 
to show you
this isn't simply a fascination

Where I Sit

I am not going to think about it ,
Can't do much from where I sit.
    Wasn't me that couldn't agree,
We know who it's so easy to see.
    Won't say much to help you out,
It was your decision that's no doubt.
     You've done no wrong I can hear you say,
Always the same with you every single day.
      Telling me I am wrong and just no good,
I should have left you back when I could.
      Now I am stuck  so in love wit you,
And all you want is something new.
      The evil and wickedness that you  soe
Has touched just about everybody you kow.
      Living the lie and playing the deceit,
Preying on the kind and gentle those who are weak.
       The day will come when you will pay ,
For all those you hurt along your way.
        It's not always good to come out on top ,
Especially when you see it's only you that you've got.
        Live out your days alone , sick and afraid .
You just wouldn't listen to anything I'd say.
        I am sorry my dear but this you did on your own,
It's your turn to suffer and you can never come home.
        I'm not going to think about it,
Wouldn't do any good from where I sit.

First, let me say I'm sorry
This isn't your fault, it's mine
I don't feel for you what you feel for me
And I know that seems so unkind

But, the passion we used to have
I don't feel it anymore
The flame that burned inside of us
Has dwindled to nothing, and nothing more

I'm sorry for you, who came out of the blue
I fell in love with a girl, but my love is no longer true.

Magic Spell of Touch

Your icy fingers reach up,
breaking the silence
that rises from the eerie depth
of fog,
enveloping us like an ocean.
You touch my hand at first,
sending electric throughout my whole body,
I feel paralyzed,
I let your bony fingers rap around mine.
My breath catches,
and it seems as though the fog thickens.
I can no longer see her,
till she kisses me,
It doesn't matter if I open my eyes,
there's nothing to see.
Your hand breaks away from mine,
I sense it move through the fog,
towards my face.
I brace myself for the smack,
knowing there's no other outcome.
I flinch at her touch,
as her fingers gently caress my face.
I am so lost in the moment,
when the fog dissipates,
and I look into her deep brown eyes.
We get up from the hard circlet of dirt,
evidence of past camping trips engulf the area.
We head through the dense Forrest,
No sense of direction,
knowing we're on our way home.
Her hand is in mine the whole way home.
I sneak back into the eerily dark house,
back up the creaky stairs,
into my bland room,
and onto my tiny bed,
thinking not of the kiss,
but those hands,
those masterful fingers,
which played with the strings of my heart,
and left me
with this loneliness
only your touch can fix.

The Question

I like your eyes,

You like my smile.

I like your beauty,

You like my style.

But what I would love,

From a white turtle dove,

Is a ring, especially for you.

I like your hugs,

You like my kisses.

I like your hair,

You like reminisces.

But I would be grateful,

As I believe it is fateful,

If you, will please marry me.

I like your persona,

You like that I try.

I like your appearance,

You like that I cry.

So i'll ask one more time,

And i'll finish this rhyme,

Please baby, will you marry me?

The Whores are my Women

I walk alone on freezing cold gutters,
with my jacket that has no buttons,
and shoes with the holes at the soles of my feet,
and the women look at me and gag,
they cry, they faint, they run away, they sigh,
they don't spare a passing glance,
they are the horrid creatures that have no soul.

Then there are the whores.
Yes, the whores stay with me,
they look at me and see a real man,
they see a real poet,
they see a real artist,
who really and truely starves for his art,
and they all admire me and what I stand for.

When I come around,
they tag along,
they sigh in relief when they see me
and they huddle around me
and they admire me
and I admire all of them.
They are my women
who ask nothing from me,
not one thing, yet they stay by my side.
They don't look at beauty, nor how big my bank account is,
they come as they are and look at me for what I really am.
They admire me, they love me,
they can't get enough of me,
and I can't get enough of them.
They all treat me right,
and I admire them for going out of their way for me.

Love is real, when real people appriciate real people.
Love is there when they sit there and listen to me
read my poems and they laugh and smile at me
and my creative genius.
The whores are my women,
and I love them for that, and I smile,
my heart laughs and they laugh with me,
because their my women
and I love them for that.

One Day

Can you please wake up?
It’s been so long since I’ve seen your face.
I miss the gentle raspiness of your voice
And the sweet taste of watermelon on your lips.
Your words give me a reason to live.
They wrapped me within a blanket of optimism
Every time you spoke.
I understand the reason why you had to leave,
But you couldn’t even say goodbye to me,
Because you left so suddenly
Why do you have to be so far?
I constantly call you hoping you’ll pick up .
I text you hoping you’ll somehow respond.
But I know you won’t even bother.
You’re off doing bigger and better things,
And I can’t stop you from living your life the way you wanted.
I occasionally walk by your old house,
And reminisce on the memories we shared in that abandoned home.
Like your mom making us homemade lasagna,
And stealing kisses when she turned her back.
But all that is just a faded memory.
Every time I think of you,
My tears flood the corners of my eyes.
I just wish I can kiss your scars one last time,
But the most recent cut
Took you away from my arms,
And moved you to a permanent place amongst the stars.
So I’ll give you this single rose above your grave.
As I promise to see you again.
One day.

Who turns off this world

Who turns off this world? 
And makes my destiny between your hands
If you are a part of my dreams
I will never dream
You are all dreams
These are my heart windows
Are opened for scepter
Are opened for love and dreams 
And the dreams are crying every year
Oh. the virgin! 
How the dreams cry? 
How the foam of the sea and shy sands cry? 
And the gulls are immigrating every year
Are your eyes similar to lilies? 
Who turns off the world? 
And plants a candle over rainbow
To live in a world of illusion
Faraway from the purple?

I Finally Understand Why

All those times that i got hurt
It seemed like i was destined to be alone...
It seemed like i would never be happy...
I would always get hurt...
I finally understand why...

All those times i cried myself to sleep...
It seemed like noone cared...
It felt like i would always be alone...
I never seen a future with anyone...
I always wanted one but didnt see it...

I couldnt see a light at the end of the tunnel...
I just seen more and more pain...
I seen more hurt...
I finally understand why...

I remember the first day i saw you...
I felt this feeling inside of me that i never felt before...
My life got a lil bit brighter and i didnt even know your name...
I finally understand why...

I finally understand why it never worked out with anyone else...
I finally understand why i never seen a future with them...
I finally understand why my world got brighter the day i first saw you...
I finally understand that feeling i felt inside...

It never worked cause i was meant for you not them...
I didnt see a future with them cause my future is with you...
My world got brighter cause i found my soul mate...
That feeling i felt inside was the feeling of true love...

You are my future 
My light at the end of the tunnel 
My soul mate
You are my princess

Come on Baby

Hey, come on baby,
lets blow this place;
come with me and lets make love
under the tall oak tree.
Hear the birds sing,
they tweet and tweet,
and the sun bakes our naked bodies,
as ants tickle at our feet;
making love with me,
making love with you,
and nature is watching
as we perform art.

There is a place out there, somewhere,
between Neptune and Cloud 9,
as asteroids collide together
exploding silent bombs in space,
like the love we make, except not so silent,
we go to that place, you make me love you even more,
when we love each other in that place.

There is a place out there, somewhere,
and as we finish and cuddle, smoking cigarettes
and watching the sun set,
we go to that place,
between the walls of Neptune and Jupiter
on the rings of Saturn,
and Pluto just sits there minding it's own business.

There is a place out there, somewhere,
a much better place than here,
let's pack our bags and go.

Do not let me die in Vain

I have seen them
Come and go through dusk, narrow streets,
Some smiling and some frowning.
Down to the River Seine,
On the banks of Paris,
I walk with no one by my side.

I walk past the cafes, and taverns, and hotels.
I see the smiles and frowns,
Which all grow ever so slightly older with time.
I cannot hear the songs of love anymore.
Take me away! Take me away from this lonesome place!
Where the faces grow old and burn to ash.
Ash, Ash!
Dust, Dust!
They grow old, they grow old.
I am frightened to see my love incinerate away,
and turn to dust and ash.

Oh, now in a safe haven, I do not see the dead coming to life,
to snatch me away into the shadows of the dark world.
I drink my wine and eat my bread,
and I live to see you walk through that door.
The faces around me grow older with time.

I wait for you.
I wait, with endless time awaiting me.
I wait, till you walk through that door.
That door that mocks me with laughs of sorrow.
I order another glass of wine,
and drink.

I notice no one is around me now.
All dead and burnt up with age and time.
Expired! Expired!
Gone without a trace!
Leaving behind nothing, but dust and ash.

But I still wait.
Sitting in that chair,
facing the door,
and smiling, for I would soon be with you!
Oh, no wait a moment and see what waiting does.

I grow old... I grow old...
Like the faces before me,
growing old with time,
and burning away with the setting of a sun.
My skin pale and wrinkles everywhere.

I'm dying with every moment that passes.
Please do not let me suffer and die in vain.
Please show me your face,
That is so sweet and beautiful.
Show the glory of your beauteous face one last time,
Before I go and lay down in my chamber of death.

I hear the Reaper's moan and I see his scythe, round my neck.
Please, I beg of you,
Let my eyes be upon you one, last time.
Do not let a man die in vain.

Boyfriend-Girlfriend Relationships

Everybody knows that all of the boyfriends and girlfriends are deeply in love with each other. 
It's been going on since the beginning of the 18th century. All loving relationships between a 
boyfriend and a girlfriend consists of caring, communicating, sharing, and stuff. I know that if a 
guy was to get this girl to be his real-life girlfriend and this girl was to get this guy to be her real-
life boyfriend, they should promise that they wouldn't cheat on each other with the others, 
even if this guy is as attractive as the other guy and this girl is as attractive as the other 
female. everybody should know that they mustn't take each other for granted because they 
need each other in need. I guess love has a way to keep two people together. Now I know 
what all boyfriend-girlfriend relationships are all about. These relationships are all about being 
honest with each other and trusting each other, especially when a guy and a girl are trusting 
each other with their hearts and souls. Love isn't just a four-letter word for all couples, it's a 
special feeling between two lovers. I hope they don't break up. I also hope I find a real-life 
girlfriend of my own. But if all boyfriend-girlfriend relationships were to end, their hearts will be 
broken, leaving them in a depressive state. But if all boyfriend-girlfriend relationships were to 
stay stronger than ever, there's no telling what great thing might happen for both lovers next. I 
hope these boyfriend-girlfriend relationships don't end in multiple break-ups.

It’s so absurd how small the world can be

All my life I eluded beauty

I had no love for nature

But now I heard the sound of the night fall,

The whistle of the sunset

I’ve longed to applause your sweet tenderness, thoughtful heart, caring stare

In the so little time I have known you,

You portrayed great angling of human nature,

Controlled your hysterical haunt

And succumb to my most unbearable nature

Yet still looked most pretty in the eyes of the beholder

May God bless you for your discipleship!

Never anxious to receive but ever longing to give

I promenade you a successful lady in the not so long future

Your chivalry clamored my heart on to my chest

Knowing you was something right

Not forgetting the glorious smiles

For which a reason haunts me for wasting my baseless life

And reckons in my mind, the need to get back up to my feet

I wish I would just let you go and compose myself to a man I were  once

Such full of melancholy and equipped  with ferocious determination to pertain my  visions

Before sundown

 When the wind kisses the green lawn
And the trees dance like pretty fawn

When the love flirts with the hate
And the soul listens to the heart's beat

I saw her before sundown
Her hair between blond and brown

Her name is Kate
I've never seen her of late

Honey please calm down! 
Our love still is between verb and noun

And this is love's gate
Which behind it our fate

Let us go to hometown
Before sundown

To begin our first love date
When the love overcomes the hate

I love you more

You are my late night, can't sleep thoughts. You are the lessons I've been taught. Mistakes I've made caused you to fade further and further away from me. You're like the air and water I need to live, my simple survival is what you give. My apologies can't fix what we used to be, it kills me to see that you seem free and I'm here hiding, running away from reality. Don't get me wrong, I want you happy but it should be me to give you what you need. I want to feed you the fire and flames into your heart and give you feelings that can't even be explained by the greatest works of art. I want to be what you want, memories of us haunt my brain making me go insane because I love you. I love you more than the flowers waiting at your door. I love you more than the sound of rain when it starts to pour. I love you more than the end of a fighting war. I love you....more

Flickering in— out.
Wounds stitched with fidgeting,
Fisted finality.  

She is.
She was.

There was a dream for which I was awake,  
A glorified foolishness and tragic mistake.

Love—O love!
Like a feverish thief, she reels,
From my arms to the bed—
From my head over heels.

O, you beautiful disaster,
You fictitious lure,
You ponderous nothingness,
Imprudent and impure.

Like petals, I shed,
Nude and undone.
Sheared and severe—
A moon without sun.

Swiftly I buckled at your unfettered charm,
As your fingertips caressingly weaved down my arm.

And surrendered myself like a teetering child,
Standing aghast at the gate to the wild.


The word yanks at the stitches that burst unsewn,
Shrieks into the deafness of happiness once known.   

Now I know.
Now I do. 
How I had such grandiose feelings for you—

They were as slippery as god;
They were thick and reeked of rain.
And though jarred and disenchanted, 
They somehow still remain.

Even so, you are just a thing,
With one mouth and two eyes.
And kissable lips that fleetingly dripped

The most gorgeous string of lies.

Running Away

The blood in my veins freeze, 
the breath in my chest comes to a rapid halt, 
the atmosphere changes, 
I am made of stone - and I run. 

I run as fast as I possibly can; 
away from the possibilities he lies out before me. 
Away from the fears that echo like a song in my mind, 
over and over and over and over and over 
until I think I'm going to go insane. 

I run from the dangers that come with trusting another being, 
from the chance that I could be wrong, 
from everything twisting and turning and forming in my mind. 
And for a moment I am Titanium.

Perfect Day

Warm mug of joe
And a back country road
Tune softly sung in my ear.

I waited for you
To finally get through
And into my life reappear.

It makes perfect sense
I've got no defense
And never a doubt my dear

That my love is for real
And I just hope you feel
The same way I do when you're near.

How I Tried On Valentine's

How I tried on Valentine's
all over the many years.
I've lost all of my Valentine's
and most of them in tears.

How I tried on Valentine's
to find my merry mate.
Working through the ugly
and possible first-rate.

How I tried on Valentine's
Forgetting all my failures.
Moving to the next one
oblivious of the bailers.

How I tried on Valentine's
to settle for much less.
Hoping that the next one
Would change and reassess.

How I tried on Valentine's
to go the other way.
Hoping that they'd chase me
finding me as clay.

How I tried on Valentine's
to say what's on my mind.
Shouting out my arrogants
and baiting the wrong kind.

How I tried on Valentine's
to make a friend at first.
Only to be shunned again
by girls who want you worst.

How I tried on Valentine's
to wait for the right time.
Left to find my girl
on another's dime.

How I tried on Valentine's
to spin a small milk bottle.
Landing on a stranger
foreign without throttle.

How I tried on Valentine's
to meet up with a bore.
When all she kept on talking 'bout
was nothing and no more.

How I tried on Valentine's
coveting one man's wife.
Only to release her
sharing in man's strife.

How I tried on Valentine's
Loving her full body.
Finding that she had no mind
and wished she had a hobby.

How I tried on Valentine's
Waiting to make love.
Ending up with others
When push came into shove.

How I tried on Valentine's
Seeking out a hottie.
Making me a sickly boy
who's doctor now called naughty.

How I tried on Valentine's
Expecting an easy date.
Getting just the opposite
but figuring it too late.

How I tried on Valentine's
Jailbait in short skirts.
Quick to kiss what doesn't last
and limits to their flirts.

How I tried on Valentine's
making the first move.
Only to find I'm ignored
for others in her grove.

How I tried on Valentine's
forcing my own way.
Told by a cold shoulder
How I could not stay.

How I tried on Valentine's
two instead of one
Only to be shot down
and told that I am done.

How I tried on Valentine's
Perfect to a tee.
Wanting only to be seen
in a bar as fee.

How I tried on Valentine's
Cautious and carefree.
Never knew what she was thinking
or who was bird or bee.

How I tried on Valentine's
remembering what I've learned.
Speaking words of wisdom
and loves that have been spurned.

At night

When sleep evasively denies
and slumber slips from tired eyes
I think upon your fair facade
and quietly I thank my God
For blessings of thy tender lips
which oft I think upon and drift,
Down into dreams so softly kissed 
By you my love

I don’t know what else to write 
Am confused; everything is so right
You are my morning sun and my moon at night
I couldn’t have wished for a better relationship
You & I is the best of history recorded relationships
Let me cease to breathe the day I cease to love you
You are my everything; my everything is you
Whenever I see you smile; the eclipse in my eyes fades away
I am blindly at you mercy; don’t ever leave me and walk away
Am deeply in love with you; you are my beautiful black queen
You are so important to me; it’s checkmate without the queen
I the king worship you; I can’t gamble with you my queen
When everything fades away; I hope to always have “you”...

Vehicles flow on the road
Engines rumble loudly throughout
All vehicles are running on the same road
But as each of them is different destination

So many people travel back and forth 
They step on the same path 
All of them are in a hurry and introvert
But they do not converse together
Each of them has own target

I blend with those people
I do not know them and they do not know me as well
I only recognize who am I? And where to go? 
My destination is my beloved  motherland 
I look upon someone's waiting for my return
Darling...!! I will be back...

By the nearness of you...
I can say: I might never be blue..
I have someone to embrace and coo..
I have someone not too early; doesn't ask for dues..

In the nearness of you..
My cheeks turns red into flush..
Magical feelings commence to gush..
Like butterflies flying in hues and rush...

By the nearness of you..
I feel a quiet caressing warmth..
Enveloping me with passion affection; not harm..
Inviting me to wish forever; not quick as ramps..

By the nearness of you..
Oh, through the nearness of you..
I feel heaven in a wrath of trials hell..
Yet, it stops me to say and tell..
For I'm confident, I'm safe from any jail..

LOVE is a weird bless,
  A sweetest pain with tremendous stress..
A game called emotional chess...
  sometimes soothing, sometimes silky,
where most of the time ...A COMPLETE MESS

The only time in life
   when you cut yourself,
with a red rose knife,
   When you are on fire,
with your own desire
   and tries to have craziest fun,
in front of a loaded gun,
Its a bell without sound,
  An illusion of cozy grounds

Even though, 
     we all are humans,
we carry hearts
LOVE is a gum won't let us apart

Even if its a stress 
after all LOVE IS A BLESS......

Introvert V Extrovert

Can i drift away in your silhouette?
or just stare consciously at the road ahead
for technique is lucrative in the battle
but whats a battle if you're already dead
listen carefully
I'm planning to subvert the misfit
who is unworthy of the crown
but sovereignty doesn't appeal to me
in all honesty if darkness attacks
all i want is you beside me
the love would be all the protection we need
but when your gone i would be...
waiting for the second coming
and you my goddess
are made in my image in likeness??.

We peer through empty window 

Twisted thoughts
Of useless wishes
Surrounding our minds

Sunlight is setting on the horizon
And a new day, has begun.

And I feel it crawling
Warmth soaking into my skin
My eyes close
As I'm smiling and thinking of you
It's trying to tell me that
My love is waiting
So I fasten my pace
To head into a new direction
Twords you

Later we are lying
Caught up in the moment
A silent fan
Spinning upon the window sil
We no longer linger our shadows 
They have been blown away
And the silence is peaceful

But still I fear the madness
Of what's yet to come
Unknown boundaries
Someone always crosses the line
Then the relationship turns spiteful.
Will it happen?
Or will it work
The biggest mystery
Each time 
We always learn to late

But regardless 
Of possible failure
Still we try 
Humans are so intriguing

Under the current
When a new love breaks out
And I feel it crawling
But I already know
Even though it's under the current
It's only a matter of time
Lets just enjoy it.

Get lost deep within your 
Mind focused on your heart
Teach me the secrets to your 
soul, for I want to be taught
There's plenty of fish in the sea 
but only by u I want to be 
caught, constantly on my mind, 
You preoccupy my thoughts
Satisfy my entire mind go 
deeper then the outward 
appearance, u speak to my 
inner spirit. U keep it real, the 
deception of my past u give me 
hope. Tomorrows not promised 
but if I stand still within this 
moment I feel whole for u 
opened up a door that I never 
knew existed one that leads to 
hope and happiness, I want to 
continue feeling this...feeling 
your inner being, your warm 
caress the way u give your all 
to a woman and nothing less, I 
want you to hold me tight 
every evening and kiss my 
forehead in the morning wake 
up by your side, spend my day 
with u on my mind. Let me be 
the woman of your dreams, let 
me be the one your hearts 
yearns for, the woman to fulfill 
your needs. Put all emotions 
out for you to see not holding 
back cuz I ultimately want you 
as well to fall in love with me.

Free me

Free me, I say free me
from the enternal damnation
of her death grip.
(I have no use, for love with her)
She does not know me,
She does not love me,
For if she would love me,
I'd love her back.

Come now, someone free me,
free me from the eternal hatred
that has grown between us.
I cannot take this torture anymore.
(My heart grows weak, my heart grows weak... I can't breath,
  I can't breath. She is crushing my windpipe! HELP ME!)

Listen I do not love you,
My heart belongs to someone else.
Someone who understands the pain I face.
I cannot love you, and will not love you, for my heart does not belong to you.

I pray to everything that is holy in this Godly, green Earth
Free me, free me!!
I say free me from this eternal torment and execute this monster!
(For my heart belongs to someone else.)

My Rita

Rita, the feeling is so real
For you, of all the love and 
My Rita, how do I make you 
Loved, or out of fashion?

Rita, I’ll be the one for you
Forever by your side
My Rita, whatever it takes, I’ll 
Our hearts, we’ll never hide

Rita, you came to me my love
In just the nick of time
My Rita, tonight we’ll rise above
You’re in your red dress so fine

Rita, the feeling is so real
For you, of all the love and 
My Rita, how do I make you 
Loved, or out of fashion?

Come Back And Finish What You Started

Take me back to when I was just 17
when I was young nieve and still had dreams
to that long hot summer
and my first sweet love
an angel bestowed to me
as a gift from above.

I recall the fragrance of her long blonde hair
that glistened like gold
and how I was lost in those smiling green eyes
and the story they told
''I love you''.

How the butterflies used to flutter inside
and how I loved to be seen walking hand in hand
I was so proud and full of pride.

That first fumbled nervous kiss
on virgin warm moist tender lips
and the sweet waves of emotional bliss
And how she used to whisper and words of love
that sent me floating among the stars above.

The places we used to take each other
where no one else had been
I was her gallant knight
and she the ruler of my heart
my world my life my Queen.

I remember each precious moment
as though it was yesterday
A dream of vivid colour
a trail of rose petals
and clear sunny skies
that seemed to say
We were made for each other
from now until the grave.

So many years have now passed
and circumstances beyond our control
meant ever since I have been lost in a lonely dark desert
and feel the bitter cold
Although I met many girls
of which in some way remind me of you
they don't come close
they can never compare
To the magic that you'd do.

I still love you now
and guess I always will
losing you was an ongoing cruel nightmare
and there's a huge hole left to fill.

I know you may never read this
and feel my pain inside
but when we parted
something inside me died.

Thank you Diane
for giving me the happiest days of my life
You come and visit me in my dreams at night
and we walk bathed in the brightest colourful lights
I your husband and you my darling wife
If I have to wait for ever
then I'll wait for you
until then my ashes to be scattered
about the places we'd go and we knew.

I have never been happy I was then
and I guess I will never be happy as I was back when
you were mine
Where ever you are
or who your with
I still have so much love to give. 

''Come back and finish what you started''.X.

A Letter For You

I'll never figure out why
I'm always stuck in my 
own misery the twist is
it's became comfortable 
for me to accept my
loneliness there's always
those short lived glimmers 
of false hopes that lead to
drunken break ups my heart
has only ever beaten for 
one but I'm not her only
it came to me as a surprise 
a few years have past us 
by I still write you these notes
hoping one day you'll find it
and you'll always know I have
only loved you and no one else

To Part is to Die

To part is to die;
Means forever that I
Will give my heart, body and mind,
Whenever to fight
For the rest of my life...

I will always try
To give you the sun, moon, and stars,
And everything under the sky.
I will forever strive
To quench you when you're dry,
If you're low, build you high.
Help you spread wings and fly...

To catch every tear you cry.
To never be the reason they fall from your eye.
Look into mine,
I promise no lie,
Together our dreams are infinite,
Let's bring them alive.
The world is divine,
So let's take our time,
And enjoy each treasure that crosses our line.
Thought the path may curve, each mountain we'll climb.
We'll never swerve and never divide.
Place your heart in my hand and I'll give you mine.
We'll put together our knots and let love make tie.
Swear on my entity, to never abandon your side.
No more, no less;
To part is to die.

When heart breaks

Making me solitude, the fire of love suddenly ends,
After a sparkling light, it makes me blind in the dark land.
Don’t know why roads are asking ‘where is my home’,
Don’t know why fear is asking where my scream is gone.
Losing myself, I got the way to survive,
Only with a dead body, life forgets it’s revived.
 The creaking sound of heart now also reverberate in my tears,
The pain of destroying of dreams, I can’t bear………..

The beautiful garden of life, in a moment became dry,
 Now, it’s only my dead heart which only cries.
Life ………. It always shows me the way of success,
But whenever I start to walk it breaks my legs to suppress…

Now eyes also got fed up by shedding the fountain of tears,
Seeing anyone’s love now I only get scared.
Love only enjoy the smoke of my dying soul,
Like a cigarette it squeezes & dumped me in the sac of coal.

Roads are now my real home,
Tears are only my fellow, with whom I can roam.
My new best friend is the rain,
It hides my tear & suppresses my pain.

But with whom I dreamt to share my soul,
Don’t know why she told me ‘time to move & role’.
I salute her decision from my core of heart,
You say how I can oppose it to give her hurt.

I wish my lover always remain happy,
Always get the best place which she deserves,
I am, for her, only a cigarette,
That’s why I will end as smoke with a dead soul inside…!

This is for the one in Pink

This is a poem inspired by a heartbraker, who had no remorse for me.
   - She is now with another, and I haven't seen her in over a year.
     Last I heard, she recieved a black eye, and a brused ribcage for talking out of line.
     I pray for her, but she left something beautiful, for something that was painted in gold
     and offered tempting items, that grabbed her attention, and pushed the Love we shared. I miss her from time to time, I won't lie, but she did this to herself.

This is for the girl in pink.

I write in Red ink,

for the Love I shared with you.

I now wear blue, too represent the sadness
you put me through.

I gave you something so wonderful,
and you turned it in for something so horrible.


This is for the girl in pink,

The same girl I wasted precious time on
and wasting endless and one of a kind love
for her.

She wasted time and effort...

I lost faith in love... for a moment I wish everything would stop,
but that wish dosen't come true.

The one I wasted ink on,
the one that I wanted to grow old with
who got my hopes up into a hot air ballon and made me fly high,
then taking her dreaded neddle and popping me to the ground of depression.

I sculpted a bust of Athena,
and you traded it in for a tattoo of a heart in two.

I gave you something so wonderful
and you gave me something I would never forget.

A broken heart.

It is easy to forget, to pack you in a box
to put you in some corner, so I collect dust,
but it's harder to take the framed picture of us
of the fireplace mantel of Live, Laugh, and Love.

I don't want to lose the memory of you,
but as you did the same to me,
I shall not make you blind, just because you made me blind.
I shall cherish you, and make you think of the blind thoughts
of me that ring in your head, and you shall cry.

I don't want to make you cry,
but to notice you were given love
and you traded it in for disrespect and disloyalty.

I am sorry for,
I cannot make decisions for you,
but you must know for love doesn't stand around
for long, you must catch it in a single, skipped heartbeat
on the first encounter of when your soul meets with passion and love.

I write this for you, my dear woman, dressed in pink.

I write in red ink
to show the love I shared with you

I wear blue, to show the sadness you put me through.

I give you something wonderful and you turned it in for
something so horrible.

You traded in a beautiful dream,
for a nightmare.

What'll You Do

What’ll you do if I’m far away?
You’ll do the same as me.
You’ll wish we could be together,
As close as we could be.

Am I so far away?
Am I not in your heart?
Does our love fade away and die,
Just because we are apart?

The kisses I gave you 
Were love I saved for all time;
And I’m hoping your next kiss…
Yes, your next kiss…will also be mine.

Please dream of me.
Dream of me with you…I do.
For if we never dream,
Those dreams cannot come true.

What’ll you do?
Please keep me in your heart.
What’ll I do?
I'll wish we never had to part.

This moment I sit&began to wonder,
As my thoughts slowly start to ponder,
Being with you is happiness inside,
Loving you gives my heart a pride. 

The breeze blowing across my face,
Leaving my thoughts enough of space,
The aura that you create around me,
Like an oxygen breadth for human being, 

Your words are comforting so much,
To make me realize i trust you so much,
The lovely 'us' and the caring 'we',
The future together that i wish to see. 

For what I am Is all you know,
Nothing lie, truth all along,
For what We are is all you know,
How much to one another we belong.
I cross my heart with love to you,
And for no one under the sky blue,
Until the sun dims in its might, 
Until the moon fades away its light,

Its You & Me i promise you this,
And nothing else will i ever wish,
You make my world a better place,
Amazingly beautiful&less in pace,
Just To be with you more in time,
Just To make you a little more mine,

Find me in this life

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!

Distant African Nights

Those Distant African Nights...


The shadows swayed in your candlelit room,

a cool breeze teasing your bare back,

streaks of lightning forked in the Johannesburg night,

as my hands stroked your hair,

kissing your soft mouth,

holding you,

ever so tight.


You whispered that you loved me,

and I kept silent,

the rain fell, 
shadows danced,
thunder rolled,

the breeze teased your naked back,

you whispered that you loved me,
as my lips found yours,

the rain washed over our tender nights,

lightning and candlelight,

etching poems on your burnished skin,


a fear gnawed at me,

deep within.


We parted ways,
and you could never forgive me, you said,

now, after numberless thunderstorms,

the rain that falls,

echo the countless tears that I have shed.


You are long gone,

far away,

happy, I pray,

yet the memories persist,

those precious moments shall never, 

like the Jo'burg rains,
trickle away,

and I wish you well,
for loving me as you did,

for it was I who was not worthy,


and it is I who is not worthy,



You were always true,

it was I who always,


refused to,

to give myself,

completely to you.

Without You

Without you,

worn down, weary,
staggering into tomorrow,
dissolving my todays, grim, dreary,

I crawl, slipping out of my skin,
flinging laughter, joy, contentment,
into the gaping abyss of life's dustbin.

Without you

 I love my poem,
 it gives my girlfriend 
 goose-pimples and leaves poker-dots on her laughter 

I love my poem,
it gives my inspiration sexy pimples and leaves me with a gooseneck, 
because my girlfriend never gets tired of embarrassing me with kisses, after she’s done going through my poems,
this pierces through my soft-pitched hugs

When she’s excellently sad
I don’t worry to flash various colours of flowers
to make her happy
because my poem, 
has the astute to make her happy again like the smiling raindrops

When I adopt her sadness, 
I always get soaked in tattered emotions

she decoratively knows how to bow away my intense sadness

She simply recites the funniest verse of my poem 
this brings me back to a butterfly state
She’s in love with my poem
she melts in my poem
She keeps saying that my poem is the ruler of her happiness
and that I should never dare to stop writhing

Even If I have no more ink to feed my paper or inspiration, to water my thoughts, 
I should just keep writing in colourful tones. 

For my poem keeps her love for me,
shining and raising in colourful tones

Which Way

June 21, 2013

We've been floating through the years
Just you and me my dear
Without a worry on our minds
Or a watch to keep the time

Which way will you go
Which way will you go
If you take the road less traveled
You're much less likely to unravel

Where have you gone
I can't seem to find you anywhere but here
Right by my side where you belong
Holding hands and singing songs

Of a time long gone
When the long forgotten speak
Their minds
And we let ours go in time

Which way will you go
Which way will you go
If you take the road less traveled
You're much less likely to unravel

How will you answer
My love
Will you trust in your beloved
Or look to the stars above

As the days roll by
I wonder why
Which will
Which will you try

True love

I really like talking to you
And you like talking to me also
We laugh and sing and feel happy
Then become sad when its time to go

We know what we have is special
And we both feel it in our heart
And if we really listen to our love
There nothing to keep us apart

But there’re so many obstacles
That is present in our way
And we keeping thinking of the future
While we are wasting precious time today

We don’t know when life will end
And it does not give us a warning
So we should enjoy the precious moments
For none are sure to wake next morning

When love and death comes]
It knows no age
Should will try to understand it
Or fight it with hate and rage

Some pushes the envelope
As far away as they can
And try to condemn others
When they don’t know their future plan

It easy to point fingers at others
While we keep our closet close
And no matter how much we pretend
The honesty of our heart god knows

True love is gift from god
For true love don’t appear out of nowhere
And no matter how far apart you are
Both your hearts will always be so near

You love the person heart and soul
For The beauty of love is so magical
And you will love that person all you can
For true love is not about how you look physical

Love is the greatest gift god gives us
And love s not caring of what other think of you
Love is when you are in each others arms
You know both your dreams have come true

Love is caring for her physically and emotionally
And telling her anytime .anywhere, I love you
And how you want to spend your life with her
And asking her to marry you and say I do

I would give anything to see your smile
And to look in your beautiful eyes
And to hear your sweet wonderful voice
And to feel all the beauty your love arise

So I just want to say how much I love you
And my is love is till the end of time
And until the day you arrive in my life
And you’re always next to me in my mind

Oh my love is like endless blue sky line,
Hanging above in beauty.
Or like striking sun rays,
Upon a beautiful city.
I hold her like a blossoming rose,
I pluck her with pity.
When the world is lost in the darkness,
I hold her like a candle in my hands.
And in the thick quiet darkness,
I trace away through strange lands.

Oh my love is like morning dew,
Upon leaves of grass.
Or like any fragile thing, 
You hold like a glass.
We shall go our way,
Through that never- ending pass.
Many more will tag along,
But none shall pass.

Oh my love is like the flow of the Nile,
Sweeping over beautiful a African soil.
She and I like the Nile,
Day and night we go miles.
Long the distance we tread,
Far the home we shall arrive.

We'll make love like it's our last

Her touch has rendered me weak. 
I've lost the strength to speak 
And to fight the feeling. 
I lost control. 
My nails swept her cheek 
While she stayed there, kneeling. 
Her smile started to hum 
While my heart began to drum 
To the beat of her swaying. 
At last I'm whole. 
We couldn't keep from 
Each other, now we're laying 
And watching the sun lose size 
Hand in hand with closed eyes. 
The sun remains yonder. 
Our bodies' heat 
Continues to rise 
As we let our hands wander. 
Necking in the flowers, 
Minutes feel like hours 
But time's still flying too fast. 
We're both complete. 
This night is ours. 
And we'll make love like it's our last.

Every minute every second of the day, I think of you,

Set me free

 We don't  make progress. We make retrogression! letting 
go of the main cause. The source of my pain. Years 
dragged out. To saying I'm leaving. We are through. Seeing 
your tears.  Your sadness. I can't wipe away so I stay.  I'm 
not fully happy.  I just love you as a friend.  What was once 
lovers has comes to and end. How many times have we 
crossed this road. My heart leaped from an elegance to 
perishable.  You're blinded by your actions. Which emblish 
my soul passed demolishment. Your mind  create this 
structure of love. Call me your princess in turn treat me like 
a dud. Why can't you wish me luck. Watch me fly like a 
dove. Grand me the wish to be someone else's "proud of". 
Pray that I mend from all the passed "situations" maybe.... 
just maybe my heart can beat again. Rise,bloom, blossom 
from true love.

An evening in Toronto

I want to get lost 
in an evening in Toronto
I want to see the fine Cherry beach
in the lake Ontario…..

I want to visit the victoria park
in crescent lake road
I want to date a naughty girl
in the McDonald at downtown
of Toronto…….

I want to enjoy a sunset
in the lake Ontario
I want to enjoy the return 
of office people to home…..

I want to get lost with you
in an evening of Toronto
Keeping your hand in my hand
walking Side by side…….

The Prison of Night

At night i weep,
in silence i grieve,
how can i sleep?
when it is hard to breath,

During the day i laugh,
with friends i converse,
but the day wont last with the turning of earth,

with dark skies comes heartache,
as the stars flicker and blaze,
there only so much i can take,
of these suffocating days,

when the day starts anew,
and the sun brings the morning light,
i momentarily forget about you,
until the return of night,

when i see the midnight moon,
and feel the stars in the sky,
i close my eyes in this room,
and pray i make it by,

for when the sun is shinning high,
and the heat consumes my fright,
i cant help but wonder why
i must suffer the prison of night

Being To Close Is Not Enough

Being to close 
is not enough,
I wanna be the 
air in your lungs.

The beat of your 
heart, the vision 
you see...

The feeling you 
feel, when you're 
next to me.

The light of the moon
upon your beauty.

The rays of the sun 
when we're at the 

The touch of the water
when you first get wet.

The towel you wrap 
yourself in.

Two souls connected 
as one, in an unbreakable

Finding True Love

For years, searching for a love so true,
Soul felt hollow , existence a misery,
Waiting for an embrace that never came,
Yearning for a passionate kiss, hoping to feel sane,

Thinking about past hurts,
Still pleading mercy from the blinding pain,
Unable to move towards the light,
Darkness feasts on whatever remains,

At that moment, in the pitch black,
As clear as day,
I see you walking with a smile,
Pain slowly disappears, fear kept at bay,

The darkness that surrounds , fragments and vanishes,
Holding my hand , giving a saving rope,
i knew then , that you'll pull me near,
With a warmth and love so pure,
your embrace a testament ,
that you'll forever hold me dear...

How do I say that which I am not permitted to say?
How do I live each day pretending that what I feel is not real?
Who do I tell about this I feel each day? 
Who will remove this desire within me to be with you?
I live each day as if I no longer exist but this reminds me that I still breathe.
It reminds me that every breath I take carries the memory of you.
Is it worth living if I do not live with you?
The future talks about someone else I am to love. 
The future does not lie but today is more a friend to me than the future.
I just wish that the future would change how today looks like.
What if I tell the future that I much rather live only for yesterday for yesterday is more fulfilling. 
Although the future may be hundred percent right, it changes not what today holds.
I am not permitted to question the future so I much rather live today with the thought of yesterday
 Until I reach the future one day.

thanks for the tea, heres something about me
nothing beats poetry, sitting underneath a tree
thankin' my family for a strong identity
people watching cause its free, beauty in the scene
has me staring with a cheese, a smile at what i see
possibly a dream,  caught up mentally 
imagining a few things, with this human being
who has the sweetest energy, soulfood like collard greens
all fools falling means I'm really dumber than I seem
being intelligent isn't just from memory
its handling impermanence light and sensibly
and lady I'm feeling your sultry melodies
we'd be crowded if its three, sit and be my company
must be a chemistry major cause the reactions meant to be
the love we can achieve, is safe from any thieves
 hold em from my queen, hearts tucked into my sleeve

Sliding Down

I’m hoping for my dreams to become a reality
I’m hoping for a phase of gratitude
I’m rejecting my hopeless fate
I’m accepting your side of the story…but don’t intrude 

Unexpectedly, I believe in love in first sight
I grab the rope for extra support
It burns like a vertical line of fire
I’m unable to climb, but I seem too far from my desire 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down… 

I cherish you like my own belongings
I designed you on my bedroom wall
I have you displayed deep in my heart
Believe me – you’ll never split it apart 

Every day I long for your touch – you changed my life around
My heart is blazing like the zealous sun…I prize my freedom and progress
The world is spinning endlessly as I kneel upon my knees 
And I imagine the memories we share with each other 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

When I reflect upon the joyous times,
My heart never fails
To pound vigorously for you
I’m sliding down 
I’m looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you 

I see the light in your eyes
I don’t see an insidious nature in you…
I wish I hadn't believed in the lies
I never felt like a hopeless victim until I gave in to the darkness 

I’m sliding down the rope, hanging from heaven 
They’re distraught by my absence
They’re cheering for me from down below
I’m sliding down…

I’m glad I've met you in the first place
We’re a perfect match – 
Don’t deny it…you made me feel handsome
We’re on the road of victory
We’re making great progress
We’re hanging on the edge,
But we were rescued 
From sliding down…

At least we’re kept ourselves alive……

The Widower

What is there too say now?
What is there to do this evening?
Nothing for I am without you,
I remember you, when my eyes first looked upon your brow and beautious eyes,
Your luxurious features and a heart of gold and platnium,
I am lost in a garden of cluelessness, and lost and forgotten.

My heart aches and shivers in the lone days of the mid December evenings,
You are gone and lost without a single trace,
But soon I had lost you for good and could never find you again,
I buried you in the gardens of the dead,
and the tears from my broken heart showered your grave.

Oh now I wish you were here,
To listen to my heart,
For it is out of tune and the orchestra is playing a slow melody,
and the chimes ring me to the dinner table,
To eat alone the lonely supper for the mourning of my woman.

So I eat alone tonight,
The house is quiet and empty,
The butlers and maids have gone home,
Nothing but lone, empty halls,
Once filled with love and music,
keep me company.

The slow music plays in my study,
I sit in my red chair,
I cry and cry again,
I read a book of poetry and think of you,
Not a life worth living without you.

Burning Embers

After being together for a time of great length
I have no idea how I put up with you, or where I get the strength
You make me so furious, just so mad!
Why do I put myself through this, if I just end up being sad?
I get a reminder every morning when I turn to your side of the bed.
The passion our love used to have, a fire burning such a deep red.
Years pass and the fire dies down
I look at you and your once glowing smile, turned into a frown. 
What’s changing I really don’t know
Sometimes wondering if it was all a show…
But in the morning, breath stinky and hair a mess
I look at you and know I’m blessed. 
Because behind those eyes I see a spark
Memories of making out in the park
The only time we’d cry
is when we had to say good-bye. 
I see something that’s keeping us alive
During the screaming shouts there is something in our hearts we are trying to revive
We’re trying to rekindle the burning embers
When all of the sudden, not just our minds, but our hearts remember
We lean in for a passionate kiss
And all of the sudden, remember the feeling of bliss.
And who knew that was the fuel we needed,
A blissful kiss our hearts and lips have so deeply missed
To rekindle our fire
To rekindle our passion
To rekindle our faith and trust we had in each other.

Swept you away

You know it’s just a matter of time
You know it’s going to come one day
You know it in your mine
My love is going to swept you away

And my love is like the ocean tide
My love sores like an eagle in flight
And my love is like a candle
To light up your darkest night

You know the passions in my heart
You know for you it burn
You know every day in life
There’s a lesson to be learn

And my love is like the stars
My love is like the big blue sky
And my love you know it’s true
My love will never die

You know that you love me
And in my heart you belong
You know it won’t be easy
But we will make it through the storm

And my love is like the forest
My love is stronger that the wind
And my love every day it grows
Like your favorite jasmines’ in the rain

You know you live in my heart
You know you will always be there
And even though we are so far
Our love makes us feel so near

And my love is like the sea
My love is goes down so deep
And my love is lock in your heart
And forever its yours to keep

And you know our day will come
You know time don’t stand still
And when I put the ring on your finger
Will say I love you and always will

And my love runs like the river
That will never has an end
And I wish to be with you forever
It’s how I want my life to be spend

You know it’s just a matter of time
You know it’s going to come one day
You know it in your mine
My love is going to swept you away

Waiting for the Rain

After the door shuts and the footsteps die,
I rehearse the words I wanted to say.
I tumble them around and around in my mind.
Juggle them. Rewrite them to perfection.
But I won't see you again.

Perhaps it is better this way.

Those nights we spent entwined in moonlit silk,
our hearts beating wildly, kisses so soft
a mere feather could have tasted my lips,
how could such passion be sustained?
Surely we would have burnt out
like two candles beckoned by one flame.

And those days by the beach,
when you playfully teased the ocean,
your skirt lifted high,
the waves bathing your thighs in sea foam,
like the bubbles from your nightly baths.
I still want to lick the saltiness away,
but we've both been battered and beaten
against the shore to the point of loneliness.

We used to be like rain drops,
splashing into the same pool,
spreading ourselves out to the world.
We explored the City in all it's splendor,
gathering other rain drops as we went along.
We were fluid and irresistible - two crazy gals.
But attractions cannot last during droughts.

Your highs became lows, crashes so hard,
the forceful blows struck even me.
I would have shared your pain,
sat in vigil until the rain began again.
I watched your beauty fade into a grey mass,
thunder clouds so fierce I was sure to get wet.
But you couldn't wait it out,
your tears dried upon your ashen face.
I didn't want us to end like this,
our love pounded into the ground.

As the door shuts and the footsteps die,
rain beats against the window panes,
begging to be let in.

Love is War

What hurts us the most?
Can someone please explain,
How an emotion such as love
Is so easy to blame.
Why is love hard?
Why is love unfair?
Why do we say we only need love
When our hearts are filled with despair?
Why do we keep saying
That love is worth the fight
When in reality we know
Love chokes our hearts so tight.
You should know when to stop
And when to go on more.
But there’s one thing we need to realize:
Love is always a war.

Man and woman, pledging no more to be single
Bride and groom, excited that their lives would mingle.
Husband and wife, in love, with hopes and dreams aglow
We were married at the chapel, thirty years ago.

working on a boat

There’s no end to worry, when working on a boat.   
The relentless sea is always busy,
Eager to embrace her,
Constantly reminding you that ownership is an illusion,
Challenging you to preserve her with 
Perception and attention
Before that limitless horizon
Overwhelms her, unimpressed with the
Purity of your desire.
And even when she's trimmed just right,
The bright work polished,
The wind and ocean harnessed in her sails,
And plunging through that vastness,
Adjustments are required,
Your hand on her tiller
Keeping her heeled over
In the slip stream,
Her tell-tails fluttering,
And all that ocean beckoning.

Don’t mind what they say, together day by day,

Oh Yohanes

Oh Yohannes
I must be honest
I’ve got a jones for you
And when I saw you, 
I remember the sun reflecting
rays of light on your skin 
so bronze, so peaceful, so simple

I wanted to tell you all my secret
desires and temptations
and kiss you and hold you close
and when I realized I was dreaming
and that this feeling was a hoax
I began to be led astray 
by sexual desires and thoughts of foul play

but in the meantime
I have fun with the fantasy of imagining  you beside me
I stay up countless nights thinking
about how we could defy gravity
and how we could somehow reverse all the laws of sanity
and just do something crazy
I can’t make it stop
I must be crazy

And when my eyes closed...
I wanted to fall in your arms and tell you about all the fantasies that were created in honor of you

And tell you how your eyes seem to remind me that it’s okay to be beautiful

Oh Yohannes
I must be honest 
Your deeply rooted stare 
will long remain a part of my fire
and my insanely human desire to make love

Memories Made

The coldest white had fell
Surrounding all the feet of those behind
The day turned into hours
Just in the mind
Did the gift appear in night?
Or were dreams reality?
Did it come from karma’s hands?
It drifts from sanity

The trek towards that happy place
You’ve been there many times
Something was different now
It held a horrible surprise
The box wasn’t full of life and sound
The ashes of memories made were here
Taking longer to twist the knife
Left remains of a child now in tears

Standing still you couldn’t breath
Excuses flying in your mind
Trying to figure out the scene
Hoping there’s time
You look up to see
Expectant eyes for the last time
You wish you could keep
But it’s the saddest of a smile

Your Whisper

You whispered in my ear,
a breathy secret, hushed.

“I love you”, you murmured.

I said nothing,
lost, in your arms,
I found a home. At last.

“I love you”, you said,
I said nothing,
lost in my thoughts,
I found peace. At last.

“I love you”, you said,
words failed me then.

They still do.

Angel With Cut Wings

If all the world would collapse right now I'd look at you for the last time and still tell you how much I loved you, 
Your past binds you from gaining happiness but I'm here,
I'm always going to be here for you ,
Through thick and thin,
I had myself questioning before whether you were worth it or not,
But in the end all you had to do was give me off that very faint smile and you gave me wings, 
You're the Angel with the cut off wings, 
You cut them off because you blame yourself for the bad things that occurred to you in the past which you never had control over, 
But I'm here and I just want to let you know that your past does not define your personality to me, 
You're my the One,
My everything,
My blissful paradise, 
I love you and I'll fix you,
I'll never let you go till the end of my days and beyond.

A Kiss Under The Mistletoe

She's been gazing, staring, all the night long
I've been scared, sheepish, stupid, and sad
I'm kissing her after the next love song
If my insecurities aren't that bad.

She's so effervescent, she doesn't know
It's not even about the looks, it's deep.
I swear I'm looking into her soul, woah!
Into this mystery I'll glide, don't weep.

Come on Derrick, it's time to rise and shine
Be the man, be the love, be the best, try.
She deserves it, make her smile just divine
Look at the mistletoe, over her, high.

Here I go, no longer holding this back
"Hello, you are beautiful, and you glow.
I know how I sound, I sound like a quack.
But please, one kiss, under the mistletoe."

Her Poem

Her smile 
Her eyes
Her lips
Her dimples
Her checks
Her voice
Smooth and chic
The words off her lips fall smoothly for me to hear
Lay press upon my ear
Her insecurities
Her wall made of bricks and cement dried I picked and chiseled
Softly places brick on floor
One by one
Her body
Her tongue
Taste sweet to the ear
Yet foul to the feelings
As she swears
Her breath
Makes me breathe
I could fill her dimples with water and float and in the crevices
Share secrets with me
As Andrea said so “I can live the spaces between your teeth and purge myself lean.”
“You drive me crazy. I mean insanely.”
When you don’t text me back my heart skips a beat
Yet not the same way as when you call me
If my heart could glow pink 
It would like my face when you call me youngin’
Well darlin’ I’m only as young as you make me
I mean
You make me giggle like a girl
Your smile
Your eyes
Your lips
Your dimples
Your checks
Your voice
Smooth and chic

Tell me, isn't that Love

Stop, breathe, and listen to me.
Listen to my love song
that I sing to you,
alone in the nidst of the twilight.

See my tears roll down my face,
as I see you walk away into the distance.
As I try to shower you with affection and heart-felt kisses,
Still you accept them without noticing and continue to walk on.

Stop, so I can catch up
and show you love!
To pick you a flower,
to walk with you,
buy you vanilla ice cream
and we sit on the park benches
near the fog covered bay
as the ships sail across, passing each other
and ringing eachother's bells saying, "hello" to one another.
As we sit on those lonesome park benches,
and we catch up.

As the hands of a clock come together at nidnight
and the neon fireworks blast and explode off
into beautiful and cheerful colors.
As you look up at the beauty
I shall steal a kiss upon your sweet cheek.

Now, tell me my love, isn't that love?

Imagine a boy whose heart you've broken. 
Picture him there, crying, sulking. 
Hands grasped around those fatal tokens. 
That you had left, much like him, broken.

Now listen to his dying monologue. 
For these words shall never again be spoken.

"It was here on this bed I lay, 
Where you said all you need to say, 
As you packed nearly all your things and ran away.
Leaving me there alone, that tragic day. 
Left me kicking, screaming, crying, in a fray. 
You left me in this never ending state of dismay, 
When you left me that way. 

Preaching to a newly understood god, 
Someday soon!
Someday Maybe!
I don't know, just someday' 

What more is there for me to say besides someday?
For you could not sooth this wounded beast at bay.
By simply saying, 

'I will stay,
End this foolish disarray,
And continue that cold harpening music that we had once played.
Just to save you from sudden decay.
Someday I'll be your forever.
Someday never!

'Stop! Stop! Stop!'
I'll say. And, 

'Would you do me one last favor please?
Before you come return for these last few things and leave, 
Kick me while I'm on my knees, 
Deny every last one of my final pleas, 
And rip my heart from about your sleeve. 
Would you do me one last favor please, 

And grant this wish, 
For a have scaffold through many a dark abyss 
Of my sub conscious, 
But still have gone a miss, 
In search of that fatal kiss. 
A kiss I had once wished to share with you.' 

What more is there for me to do, 
For you to do, 
For us to do.
We are now dead!' 

Just as he is dead.
Stuck in his own head, 
Because of the words that you had left unsaid, 
The love that you had left unfed. 
He is now dead, 
In his own head.

The fairer sex
How fair they aren't
When courting is in question
The fairer sex
How good they are
At beguiling and deception

Yet so in depth
Their traps prepared
Beauty - a treacherous invention
I think I know
Their ins and outs
Still this is no protection

From evil spells
For wedding bells
Will cloud your best perception
And in a trice
Your gagged and bound
In an altarly direction

memories of happiness that once breathed...

 There was a wonderful change in my life today,
A sense of  something good comming my way.
     It's been a long time comming and  it's feeling right ,
I know this because I was able to sleep last nihgt.
     Loving you has always been so easy  for me ,
Holding on to you was  very different you see.
     Finally the clouds and stormy skies have cleared,
We can see it clearly now that it is so near.
     For years we have struggled  with this love we shared,
Only recently have the two of us become so aware.
     Of what we truly feel for each other these days,
Leaving no doubts it was meant to be this way.
     I love her more now then I ever have before ,
To think I was about to walk out that door.
     She loves me I can feel her much closer now ,
The happiness I feel makes me scream aloud.
     Telling everyone I have a wonderful thing,
The love of my Queen who has made me her King.
     We will live our lives making all the memories ,
This love I have for you and  you have for me.

Your Choice

It crushed my heart to hear
That you were no longer and would never be mine
It seared my soul to see and know
That you were with her and I was once more—alone

I still remember promises
And now they bring me searing pain
Unlike the times my whole being swelled with joy
Now I only further deflate

It ripped me to pieces to see
My place beside you filled with another
My heart is wrung in despair by the thought
That I was rejected—and now I’m replaced

As I sit on the sidelines and cry silently
I wish you would shed one tear for me
Or promise to never forget
Or feel a tinge of regret

But you don’t

You don’t care

You have the choice of letting me go
Or throwing me out
And acting like I don’t exist
And what hurts me more than anything is
When faced with this choice
You  do not blink
With no hesitation
You take it.
Do you know you're slowly killing me?
Sliding a blade into the tender flesh of feelings?
Another pang of pain courses through me
knowing that, of course, you do.
Now I am gone.

Thought It Was Right

 It's a funny thing  we have in this relationship we call love ,
I know this one thing for sure and  that it was not from above.
   Struggle as we may day after day week after week,
Doesn't seem to matter we can never reach what we seek.
    In my heart I know what  I have felt for most my life,
Forever it seems I have wanted you to be my loving wife.
    But there's always been this small wedge between  you and I,
You just were unable to stop yourself from telling me lies.
     Oh there were days that were so good and felt so right ,
It always changed before we had ever reached the night .
     A very sad thing to see hop[es and dreams fade away,
Nothing left but to remember those wonderful  days .
     Still I believe in relationships that are filled with love,
The ones that are truly made by the hands from above.
       So much will be lost  and will never be recovered ,
But  there will be so much  more gained with a new lover.
       A far cry from what I had dreamed my life would be,
Yet I will continue on in search of a love meant just for me.

Within Me

Within Me

Flowing through the rivulets of my everyday thoughts,
memories of you surface, gasping for air, breathing in,
permeating, absorbed by the pores of my ageing skin.

Famished, greedily gulping mouthfuls of fractured life,
awash in distant yesteryear, when your feathery kisses,
banished the vacuum, dispelling my anguish and strife.

You are eternally carved, and embroidered into my soul,
I wash ashore, smashing against the boulders of the now,
seeking solace, begging for absolution with my empty bowl.

The book of fate is sealed shut, the tea-leaves have been read,
nothing remains within me, the burden of smiling has been shed.

Now I am stranded, between dreams and the empty years ahead,
searching for forgiveness, in the miles I have yet to wearily tread.

I Want to Walk with You

I Want to Walk with You
I want to walk with you with our heads held high
Never cowering, never with heads bowed
With our feet on this blessed soil, and our dreams reaching for the sky
Dreams of simple joys and of peace and of mirth
For all our fellow travelers on this delightful earth
Dreams not of wealth or of positions of high standing or of mighty power
Simple dreams of a walk in the aftermath of a Johannesburg evening rain-shower
Dreams of bread and water and dignity and shelter and clothes for all
Dreams where all fellow travelers may together walk this earth proud and tall
I want to walk with you, my fellow traveler, with our heads held high
Never pandering to power, never silent in the face of its abuse
Always firm in our convictions that we can all make peace if we only try
If we try to stop and think and sometimes not to look the other way
If we practice what our different creeds really teach, we will surely see that day
When we all, fellow travelers may walk with our heads held high
Never cowering, never with our heads bowed
With our feet on this blessed soil, and our collective dreams reaching for the sky
Call me silly, call me naive, call me hopeless, and if you must, call me weak
But is this not the common good that our different creeds and cultures all seek?

Tell Her Lovely Rose

O lovely rose my lovely rose
Fairy dainty flower, 
The joys and gaiety that you bring,
Abound me so much my heart leaps to sing

Oh how proud and grateful is this garden, 
To have you here living cherished in the hearts of men,
Even the gentle breeze of the new evening knows,
How to give you care when the whole day sun repose,

Are you greeting '' hi hello'', 
When that someone so nice catch you in her eyes?
Beautiful like you and dear to me,
The flower of my life beloved is she,

But nothing does she know what i am saying for,
Why I'm foolish with words she knows no more, 
Bit you here knows what is my  cause,
Please go and tell her my lovely rose,

Passion in D-Major

Passion in D-Major

Feeling, the sensuous brush-
strokes on a canvas,


to a symphonic crescendo,

of our shared heartbeats,

fading between the notes,

feeling your soft body entwined 
with mine,

your form bathed in my infinite 

our orchestral desire rising,

conducting a shared fusing of 

... the music echoing ...

over the precipice,

on the brink of dazzling rainbow 

lost in the void,
of an eternal instant,

plunging through the depths of 

forever pleading,

for a prolonged,

bouquet of shared time.

Friendly Love

There are a lot of things to say
Why do I feel so alive when you're around?
There’s so much to do today
But how do I get rid of the clouds – shadowy and gray
We're lying on the ground...
Looking at the stars overhead... 

You are my beloved friend – 
Our love won’t break or bend
I’ll love you until the very end…
I’ll love you endlessly…our happiness blends
Like coffee and cream– yum! 
I know…these rhymes are quite dumb…aren’t they? 

Our light will shine and burn out the night 
Maybe there’s a star in the sky that scorches with love 

You are my superb friend – 
Our love won’t wear off or wither away
I’ll love you until the day I die
I’ll love you every day…our delight will be
As sweet as pie – how appealing 
I know…these words are overused…aren’t they? 

Our flight will be as dazzling as the elegant eagle 
Trained to ascend for more than half his life – or we’ll be like the seagull!! 
We could fly there and catch it someday
Fly……with me! Shoot the bull’s eye!
Our love will never die…so don’t say otherwise
Or I’ll sink in dismay

Love of My Senses

You are my senses that I no longer seek.
Smelling your charisma makes one weak.
Hearing your angelic voice softly speak,
Envelops the sense of touch to peak,
Wanting to taste your lips so sweet,
Without the dark I would not see.
Stars that twinkle when we meet,
Shining upon our love, you and me,
Without dark, it could not be discreet.
Stars could not flicker upon the sea.
You are my senses, all complete.
Our love fulfilled, these stars can see.

Quote “Without the dark, we wouldn't see the stars”

If We Met Again

If we met again; 

would I know what to say?

How to act?

Who to be?

Would you fall in love again,

or walk all over me?


I wonder everyday;

would it be the same?

Could you ever smile 

and take away the blame?


Do you know my motives;

for the decisions that I made?

How I would cry every night

on the pillow where I laid.


Should I bring up the past

or let you go and live?

Do you know how it felt,

having nothing left to give?


Do you remember the notes 

of the song that you created?

All of the simple pleasures 

and the passion when we dated. 


Do you feel the anger,

from every fight that we had?

The fake facade and convincing,

that it was never really bad.


The promises and riddles,

the immaturity and fun.

The foolishness of thinking,

that you would be the one.


The sacrifices and endings.

The beginning feeling shy.

The last final moment,

when I whispered to you- goodbye.

Silent Fights

When we fight in silence, like titans abound by egos
An eager poet overcome by words.
A beautiful model delicate as raindrops
When the silence in the room is as thick as our nostalgia
Wanting to hold each other but held back by thick egos
Ripe with the wretch of imminent paradoxes
Contemplating charades of choices of parallel provisions
As if we can afford life without one another

 When we fight in silence and the room gets microscopic
Her presence bold. she drifts like a thunderbolt across an African sky
Similar spaces, sharing oxygen and the ammonia in our hearts
our breathing aligned by the poisons of our fear
We have sacrificed in miles to allow centimeter consequences
Our story ripples gentle beneath her feet
A story that eclipses at the axis of our ex's
Subtle and calm in the stanzas on our palms
our skin cells still thick under their fingernails

 When we fight in silence and cant even look each other in the eye
The war between our minds that our tongues abstain from
Cold war of silent minds in love like a godless church
When the earth sprints beneath us,
bare bones and shuckles in our silenced fight
I don't know if its a curse that we both cant quarrel
Like feral lambs with a deep predilection for another
Infatuation so simple like the cartography of her skin
Her hair superior, laden ith disposable paradises
Simple chemistries of lovers who 've been through some shit

When we fight in silence. Hearts smooth as skipping stones
Hungry enough to believe the silence tastes better
But time... Time is a cold mason between us
Like a perverse heartbeat, the worst kind of treason
I have lived bittersweet moments that slow down the clock
I have seen pendulums and hourglasses turn lovers to strangers
I have heard how we change the world & the world changes us
I have learnt that the world is always ending and love prevails
Like neglected flowers in thick mahagony vases
Infested with greedy butterflies free from their leashes
The agony of traded dreams and faded hopes

Words are despots I would rather be silent than say something I will regret.
She is my armor. No sword in my castle, verbal nor metal
My fists only fold when I pray to God for her existence
Four eyes, one vision, one blindness
Heroes are for children and those who cant save themselves
After the silence the dialogue writes itself in a calligraphy of apologies
In our new-found understanding of the tapestry that is you & me
Minds re-aligned like telephatical alphas Completing each other's sentences
Simple enough this is our redundant arithmetic
Learning integrals of loving her beyond her crutches through infinity
Thats the mathematics of my existence. When we fight in silence

Love Like Cotton Candy

We sat beneath a bleeding sky, 
Pink, like cotton candy.

You breathed a smiling sigh,
Soft, like cotton candy.

My lips fell to your command, 
Sweet, like cotton candy.

We danced hand in hand, 
Spun, like cotton candy.

But now that moment's passed, 
Melted, like cotton candy.

These dreams never last, 
Gone, like cotton candy.

If I Were Still Single

If I were still single
I will see love and life from a different angle,
knowing that what makes a wise woman
is beyond trying to please every man.
I will not look out for comfort and cool cash
from men who will dump me like trash.

If I were still single,
I will not put my mind on how to mingle,
knowing that single-hood is not a status,
but a season to be faithful and focus...
I will not flush the street with skimpy skirts,
only to be a cheap prey to some freaky flirts.

If I were still single,
I will never let my heart niggle,
knowing that I am not meant to be a liability;
looking for love will not be my priority,
I will metamorphose into an assorted asset,
to be found by man who needs more than a pet.

If I were still single,
I will read the tales of love-triangle.
Knowing that love is beyond deep feelings;
even sadists and rapist have...deep feelings.
I won't open my legs to some random guy
who only want to feast on my fruits and fly...

If I were still single,
I will let manners and modesty be my jingle,
knowing that make-ups can turn to fake-ups,
my man won't see a stranger... when he wakes up.
I will not look for a man with mansions,
but a man who has mission and clear visions.

If I were still single
I will look before I leap,
and not sell my self cheap,
my body is my business
my private platter is priceless.
if you can't wait, you are not strong enough,
I am a treasure so tender and tough,
I will crave a love-life that will last long...
I will wait for a man steadfast and strong.

Tenderhearted smile

The tilt of her head is so seducing The braids of her hair is so beautiful Her luscious lips are very enticing Her eyes bring plenty and are bountiful Her heart brings passion that is plentiful I loved her tenderhearted smile she shares It’s her soul that appears and shows she cares Another look into her eyes brings hope She wiggles into my arms, while she dares Her passionate look lets me go elope

When being told you're “perfect”
but that it's not enough
what can you even do
in pursuits of love?

The seemingly endless process of
meeting and greeting
sharing, laughing, loving, caring
even becoming attached to family, pets
all so that it may come to an abrupt
ofttimes one-sided end- 
it wears me down
I'm far too young to feel as drained
I'm far too young to feel as pained
I'm far too young to feel as enslaved and betrayed
by this process of courtship as I do

Those older and wiser counsel: 
Patience, waiting is never easy
The right one will come along
You're a good person with a good heart
and you've got a lot to offer
It's their loss
I already know all of that, 
but it doesn't mean I accept it
It doesn't mean a part of me
cannot fear that the one I held dear
should have been mine to keep,
mine to fight for, mine to live for,
mine to die for
But what can I do?
What can I do?

Loving you is something i can't try to hide no matter how i try to pretend. If there is a way i could stay in your arms forever, trust me i would, all i want is you. I don't know what language, expression, word, idiom to make you believe what i'm saying, baby you are my everything. I love everything in you especially your eyes ; those are the cutest thing i've seen.I know sometimes i could be hard to comprehend, i don't want you to have any doubt about the way i feel for you cos nothing can ever change it. i don't regret any day that i spend with you because it's treasured right in my heart. Swtie i want you to be mine till eternity, dont want to share you with any one at all. I could spend my whole life with you. You might think i don't trust you but i dont think it is possible to love someone SO much, giving your heart out and still not trust the person, anyway if you're still not satisfied i will try to build my trust for you day by day. I pray i love you forever, i hope nothing separates us...
Ur love... Dannycurrie

Never in a million years

Never in a million years would i have thought 
this to be,
my bestfriend, companion, and so special
to me.
if i wouldnt have opened my eyes,
she could have just passed by and walked right 
outta my life.
but in Gods weird since of loving humor way,
today he brought Brittany Back to stay,
a life from my past that i had lost,
never knowing what would be Gods cost.
Now i sit hear always waiting to see,
her simple smile brighten up for me.
The friendship, hugs, smiles and the tug at my heart,
now i know it was just the start.
I may not always be the best,
but yet she still chooses me above all the rest.
all i ask is please let this be I love you Brittany,
and God please bring her home to Me...

My Savior

Dedicated to Jazmine Russell

   angel has affallen
   she, stands she.
   she was not,
   she was not,
   beauty, she was.
   for her, i did as if my shoes were untied
   i thanked for this miracle
   Love & light was saving me from Hell and darkness
   never knew it was possible
   me and undeserving person,
   by anger and passion and
   by none but a few.
   mocked, and mimed and never truely understood
   I am strong, but
   because of her
   no longer living or speaking to me and is only not
   When she is pained.
   of the devil no longer shows or exists
   she has come
   have been easier and more
   Things for me are no longer in
   cause i am strong now, and as for
   i no longer have any.
   now have more of a tune and 
 has no effect. And
   makes Jazmine a whole new name
   the best name
   and my love's name

living in a dream world

you were there
and so was i
you in youre world and me in mine
yet somehow we werent there at all
and our worlds were just to small
together we would unite
leaving our old worlds behind
creating a new worlds together
one that we would share forever and ever
now here we are
as we have and always will be
in a world that we created
for only you and me
no longer in our own worlds 
but in our dream world

Water, Beach and A Moonlight Stroll

Water, Beach and A Moonlight Stroll

Moonlight, beach and a stroll in the cool blue water
you wading beside me, string bikini made it so much hotter!

You bending over to splash water in my smiling face
a fantastic sight, one that made this loving heart race!

Cool breeze sending it's soothing , washing embrace
moonlight water washing away footprints leaving not a trace!

Such glory, sharing that love filled time with you
realizing I love it all, everything you and I could ever do!

Stopping by that overhanging rock beaten by the sea
memories of your body and sweet face forever burned into me!

Love, overpowering love, burning us into just one
water, beach, breeze with us bare under that midnight sun!

Robert J. Lindley, 07- 23-2014

Our first night at the resort in the Phillipines, Boracay!
So very beautiful and an idealic scene for love to blossom. 
And blossum it did, a glorious memory burned into my heart 
and my brain!
My wife, the enchantress that captured my heart with a smile, 
a laugh and a string bikini! One I bought that day and dared her
 to wear! Knowing I'd win the bet, she fooled me--she wore it won
 the bet but just between us -- I wanted to see that win!!!!!

I Hate

I hate the birth mark under my right eye
I hate my extremely static hair
I hate my big bottom lip
I hate my spotty nose

I hate that I have really *****y times
I hate that people only remember me for my really *****y times
I hate that the real *****es hate me
I hate being cautious so they don’t ***** about me

I hate that I cry over everything
I hate that people know I cry over everything
I hate that I hide from them anyway
I hate that they actually don’t care 

I hate the fact that my brother is leaving home next year
I hate the fact that I cried when he told me that
I hate the fact that I hid my tears from him
I hate the fact that he’s all I really have left

I hate my father for making me feel like he doesn’t care about me
I hate my mother for making me feel like she picked him over me
I hate that my brother had to look after me when they couldn’t be bothered
I hate that, in my eyes, they don’t deserve to be called mum and dad

I hate that when I was younger I had to run away from my father
I hate that my mother and brother left me by myself that day
I hate that they left me closer to my father
I hate that they went somewhere I would have felt safer

I hate that I feel like my friends are slowly fading away from me
I hate that I feel like I’m a third wheel
I hate that I feel like my friend’s don’t trust me
I hate that I feel like I can’t trust my friends

I hate the feeling of loneliness
I hate that I read books to escape to a world better than mine
I hate that I write to create a better life than my own
I hate that people want to invade that one heaven I invented

I hate that people ask me why I made Katy Clover Taylor
I hate that I had to make a role model for myself
I hate that she is the person I desperately want to be
I hate that she is the one thing I will never live up to

I hate that I feel like my grades would grasp my families attention
I hate that feeling of disappointment when I get a bad grade
I hate feeling like I have to live up to an expectation to hold their attention
I hate that I am relied on because of my grades

I hate that I am an older mind trapped in a younger body
I hate that I am limited in what I can do because of my age
I hate not being trusted upon
I hate people treating me as a kid

I hate not telling people how I feel
I hate hiding behind an invisible barrier
I hate not being able to share how I feel with people
I hate being scared that they won’t care.

I hate people judging me
I hate judging people
I hate that feeling of giving up
I hate the feeling of losing when I didn’t give up

I hate the choices I have made
I hate that nobody thinks I can live up to my dream
I hate people thinking they are so much better than me
I hate the fact that they are right

I hate that I will never make a good girlfriend
I hate the fact I know nobody would fall for me
I hate knowing that no one would help me pick up my life
I hate that it has fallen apart

I hate hurting the people I love
I hate them not loving me anymore
I hate knowing that what I would do would hurt people
I hate the fact I do it anyway

I hate knowing that I do all of this
I hate knowing I hate all of this
I hate trying to change it
I hate that I am not able to change it

I hate that I try not to give up hope
I hate knowing all hope is lost
I hate that I still try and cling to it anyway
I hate knowing I failed at that too

But most of all

I hate not being able to express this until now
I hate that this still won’t change a thing
I hate thinking that it still might
I hate knowing that no one cares

Through It All

August 4, 2012

Well she don't mind if I
Go around back to take this call
No no she won't mind if I
Brought about it all

Right there my soul stands tall
Absent through it all

Broken plates evade my face
Against my bedroom wall
Beneath the windowsill
Where we once fell in love
Let's make peace like turtle doves
And walk back home now through the mud

Well she don't mind if I
Come back home at 4 am
No no she don't mind if I
Leave her all alone again

Right there my soul stands tall
Absent through it all

Make up like it never was
You always knew I was a dud
Above my comfy bed
Where you once rest your head
Can't we forget all that I've said
Awake where the past is dead

Well she don't mind if I
Bare knuckles through her wall
No no she don't mind if I
Yell and scream even more

Right there my soul stands tall
Absent through it all

Your Face Is So Pure

Your face is so pure
Your body is fine
Always in my dreams
Your kiss is divine.

Hold hands with me
Let us go strollin'
Bumping our shoulders
Laughing and talkin'.

My life is your life
We are the ocean
Steadfast we signal
Strum my emotions.

Don't let tomorrow
Regret our today
Freeze up this moment
Stow it away.

People beneath us
Wish they were like us
Green eyed they glisten
In silence they listen.

We speak of nothing
There is no need to
Comforting signals-
Two hearts the venue.

Resting in motion
Sadly when still
Princes have honor
Queens have their skill.

Don't Jinx It

Whatever you do, don’t jinx it!
Don’t mess up something pointlessly!
If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it!
I’ve heard these words repeatedly.

I tend to over analyze--
(Whatever you do, don’t jinx it!)
Not a good thing, I realize.
She loves you.  Don’t over-think it.

Her heart is tender.  Don’t break it!
Even though this might sound sappy.
Whatever you do, don’t jinx it!
Do your best to keep her happy.

One day she might end up your wife;
If you break her heart, then fix it!
In case she’s the love of your life,
Whatever you do, don’t jinx it!

Oh! pretty nature
This is eye-catcher
On the wet, wet grass
There were few dew drops
Shelly and I
Reeling, in pleasure
Selling, our leisure
Rolling, in great measure
This is big pleasure
O, I love this season
It's spring,
This is the reason...

a single candle

and you're eyes glisten
in the wind swept candle light
like angels dancing
on the moonlight pools of forever
the light glides across you
creating shadows of passion 
silhouetting my heart
luscious lips carrying dreams of eternal love
whispered to my heart
with every precious kiss
the shadows dance around us
fading into the embracing candles light
the night an empty canvas
to b painted with desire
golden seas of silken touch
the windows to your soul
a hallowed glistened green
and your heart
a single candle

Vexing High

I’m caught in the midst of a dream I reside –
tumbling lovers tempting romance with pride.
Twisting and thrusting, to and fro with hate –
stumbling over a beautiful destiny and fate.

Creeping and crawling through shards of hope –
resisting the tension on a loveless, tight rope.
Shuddering in solitude, and mentally numb –
oblivious to the breakdown of who I’ve become.

Teasing and taunting, the years of lost time –
mocking their innocence with words and rhyme.
Insulting their integrity, of wrong over right –
disregarding true feelings, absconding the night.

Searching the wreckage, down high and up low –
for bits of true love and familiar pieces I know.
Vexing in torment, and accepting thy defeat –
of an unspeakable romantic tale of deceit.

If This Love Takes Me To The Sunset

If this love takes me to the sunset
I hope you’ll walk along with me ‘til there
To have you closer until the twilight
For your love shall be my only chandelier.

When you’re still chasing for the rainbows
Adoring its hues for such beauty and gay
Our dream shall be like flower in the meadow
Cancelling the rigors we face each day

If this love takes me to the sunset
Surpassing the challenges we have been through
Our walk maybe downhill or to the summit
Your smile sustains me further as we go.

When at times our steps get halted
Believe that things will be just fine
And if the world sees me unwanted
To me, may you remain faithful and kind.

If this love takes me to the sunset
Soon I can savour life’s final goal
As heaven’s angels blow their trumpets
I shall be ready for my Master’s call.

When these sunken eyes of mine are closing
And you can hear my breath no more
Do not bereave for I am heading
To an entrance called Heaven’s Door.

If this love takes me to the sunset
Stay as closer and hold me tight. . .

Nine Inch Nails, Brain Pain

Nine Inch Nails, Brain Pain

I stopped waiting on any earthy fruit
 empty guns that sing but do not shoot
Nine inch nails driven into my brain
 snails crawling in bloody, bloody rain

I stopped asking for your sweetened lies
 sickness baked into little hollow pies
Cuts embraced to feel the sweetest pain
 stick it in but make it so very plain

I stopped begging for more misery
 from you laughing at my mercy plea
Seven inch blades twisted in to bleed
 answers given to a most futile plea

I stopped begging so very damn long ago
You that lie to feed your deceitful show

Pieces of My Heart

Today I gave you a piece of my heart; 
Soon you  will have them all.
For slowly my heart is becoming yours.
Please don’t let them fall.

Every time you kiss my lips,
Or hold me in you arms
I give you another piece of my heart.
Please keep them from all harms.

You ask, “Why not give them all at once?”
This action I do not dare.
For fragile is this puzzle of mine.
Please handle them with care.

It can be easy to give into depression and sadness.
It's always knocking on the door
Staring in the window
Hiding in the closet 
Laughing in the mirror
Laying in the bed
but I prefer happiness and love
She is sharing her heart
She is looking into my eyes
She is smiling in my direction
She knows who I am. . . and still,
She is always there for me

The shining Path of the walkway

My hands are embedded in your skin,
And your body is rambling,
To the sea of a thousand waves,
>       I am a boat ...

I have the heart that fails,
Engraving on the ocean,    my wake
When under the terms of travel
You also ondoies the hips

... If it is falling into oblivion
After the course of the hills
Fingers hanging with saline scents
On the pleated waves of your bed,

When the desire        is resting
It has neither beginning,  nor end,
But resurrects while whith its whole hunger,
It combines us,     and overlays us ...

My mouth keeps         in mind,
The taste of passion in fruits,
Always present in the heart of the night
>   Shining Path of the walkway.

--- ( own translation from french )


" Le sentier lumineux  du promenoir"

Mes mains se sont incrustées dans ta peau,
Et ton corps qui divague,
A la mer aux mille vagues,
Je suis un bateau...
J'ai le coeur qui flanche,
A graver sur l'océan, mon sillage,
Quand aux termes du voyage,
Tu ondoies aussi des hanches,
...Si c'est basculer dans l'oubli,
Après le parcours les collines,
Les doigts accrochés de senteurs salines,
Aux ondes plissées de ton lit,
Quand le désir                   se repose,
Il n'a ni commencement,    ni fin ,
Mais ressuscite,         tout à sa faim,
Il nous combine,       et superpose ...
Ma bouche               garde en mémoire,
Le goût de la passion,            en fruits,
Toujours présent, au coeur de la nuit,
>        Sentier lumineux de promenoir.

missing you

In a club surrounded by people but I feel lost 
As this gorgeous girl on the dance floor begins to grind on me
But all I can do is stare at the clock
Thinking why hasn’t the girl i like got the time for me?

The girl grinding on me has one of the best bodies I’ve ever seen
She whispers in my ear that she’s flexible
And wants to go to bed and scream
But I’m just not feeling sexual

My heart belongs to someone else
So to give this girl a night of passion would be wrong, is what I felt
Her stripping down to her thong doesn’t even help
The girl I love is gone; I need to be by myself

Yeah i could screw my way through the female population
But what would that really do?
Because my heart would still be aching
Because I still wouldn’t be with you

I gave you forehead kisses
I gave you before bed kisses
Before I went out i gave you doorstep kisses
I promised I’d do whatever the heart in your chest wishes

I ran you baths, held you and made you meals
The love i gave was real
You left me for him; no one knows the heartache I feel
I just need some space to heal

Shade of pink

The flowers are some shade of pink, 
I couldn't really grasp the exact color because I was in a rush to get them to you,
I didn't want that color,
I wanted the color blue,
Because I really don’t love you,
Like that, 
I see you as a person I can talk to you,
Not a person that I can lay next to,
I want to break up with you,
I don’t have the courage to so,That’s why now,
I’m sitting next to you and your pink flowers,
Wishing that I have powers, 
To change myself to someone that is not a coward.

She's Mine And She's Fine

Standing around city lights.
Passing time Friday nights.
With a girl I know.
With a girl I like.
This girl i like; she's fine..

This girl I like; she's mine my friend.
She helps me pass the time my friend.
This girl I like; she's mine.

This girl I like; she's fine my friend.
She helps me pass the time my friend.
This girl I like; she's fine.

Standing around Friday nights.
Standing around in the city lights.
With a girl i know.
With a girl I like.
This girl I like; she's mine.

This girl I like; she's mine my friend.
She helps me pass the time my friend.
This girl I like; she's fine.

This girl I like; she's mine..

Oh, Please do not say you're in Love

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Your heart is mine,
and I belong to you.

For this too a winter day,
and waiting for the first sun in May,
To see you in your spring dress,
and to hold you once more and rest,
Time and time, over and over, I grow restless,
Waiting for you, in the sands of time.

My nerves are restless,
and I cannot catch a single breath,
and I cannot rest for a single moment,
To suffer this sort of tourment,
and wait for you to come, that one day,
That one spring day in May,
Oh, and please do not say,
That you have falling in love with another Man.

For I wouldn't know how to progress,
For my heart would shatter,
My fists would close tight and batter,
and my eyes would see red,
and all our time together would go to waste,
and wasted time is the saddest thing out there,
In this cruel and shattered world.

I'm yours

Day and night I'm yours,
Through all our love endures.
Tears and rain may become one,
But what GOD joined cannot be undone.

The biggest hurricane is a breeze,
Our love is a flame winter cannot freeze.
Rose petals cover every step we take,
Through time our love bends but does not brake.

Your eyes are my morning stars,
Illuminating my life and healing my scars.
Your touch is a morning breeze,
With a simple touch my fears you ease.

Your Will Be Done

You did this, you pushed the wrong buttons,
It was not supposed to end this way.
So now I hide behind these blinds,
I begged and pleaded you to stay. 

You never saw that what i sacrificed for you was way beyond my powers,
But input everything aside for you and now you bring out the sorrows. 
So thank you for showing me what your expectations were with me so you earned your crown,
So I say this as my finial words, "May Your Will Be Done".

Fourth of July

The fireworks exploding behind our closed eyes, 
They come to life with the spark from our lips.
We open our eyes and sway back and forth,
Looking at each other as if we will be there forever.
We pull in close and embrace.

in my moments of slumber
i can see your face
when i close the passages your lips i can taste
so soft and so tender 
i caress youre face
if i cant have you near
id rather live alone instead
we tell lies to our hearts
saying this love isnt right
but you stay in my arms
and i hold you tight
as the sun fills the room
with light and warm shine
i look into your eyes
and know that you are mine
when my eyes slowly open
i look for your face
i feel round the room
but your gone without a trace

That agonizing of the heart
is not in letting go,
but what was never plain to me
and what  I'll never know.
These sleepless nights are what I wish
you'll have, along with me,
and never know a minute's peace,
as long as time shall be.
My wish is you will never know
a love that is complete,
but go from one love to the next,
not winning, but defeat.
My hope for you is not in love,
but love's catastrophe,
the very same that I will know,
the rest of life for me;
I want your life to be a mess,
and know the truth of it,
love is not gentle nor a friend,
but pieces that won't fit.
I pray each night each dream will show
love is not so divine,
and sleepless, you will come to know,
Your love is just like mine.

Unconventional Lovers

Pillows and blankets
Shaped in a 'V',
Bottles and pills
In a wrapper-filled sea.

Drool on our faces
Clothes on the ceiling.
These are the nights
My heart is healing.

My head on your feet
Your toes in my hair,
A repulsive aroma
Sweetens the air.

It's the puddle of glop
Is that yours or mine?
It doesn't matter
We'll both decline.

Though we both know it's yours
You somehow persuade,
And I clean up the mess
You swiftly evade.

I open the blinds
To see what we've missed,
You gripe and you grumble
But comply when you're kissed.

An hour to be active
Before it's once again night,
An hour to argue
And tickle and fight.

All showered and groomed
Clothes still on the ceiling,
These are the days
My heart is healing.

The sky turns to black
From the momentary blue,
But my day isn't wasted
When I'm wasting with you.

do i do that to you

holding on for dear life struggling for a breath though my throat is tight. 
one touch from you is like a brand new day 
your here now its all ok. 
you make my every dream come true you make my heart stutter
and I wonder 
do I do that to you
you smile and im on a different world. you stroke my cheek and im your girl
im putty in your hands though you make no demands
you make my every dream come true and I wonder do I do that to you
do you catch your breath when I come close 
do you forget it all when im here
you make my heart stutter and you make my every dream come true
now tell me do I do that to you.

Abide in the Light

You abide in the light
I’ll miss you…when you venture off at night 
Don’t forget me…
Don’t discard me…
Don’t leave me…   

Forgive me for drifting away from you… 

Please forgive me…
Please don’t ignore me…
Hear my pleas…don’t turn the other direction…
Run with me…into heaven’s light

I’ve given you my soul…
I’ve shared with you my melody
I’ve fed you until you were full…
I’ve healed you when you were under the weather…
I’ve tried to bring us back together

You hang on the rope of hope
I’ll rely on you…I’ll cling to you… 
You saved me from subsiding into the obscure abyss

Don’t reject me…
Don’t depart from me…
Don’t release me…

Respect me for who I’ve become
Please respect me…
Honor my presence 
Protect me from any sort of harm  
Is it in your nature to relieve my anguish? 

I’ve been driven away by my affliction 
I’ve set you free from Egypt…and lead you to the Promise Land 
Have you forgotten my affection? 
I’ve tried to empathize what you’re going through – I’ve gave you a helping hand
Don’t you understand? Will you ever understand? 

You abide in the light 
I’ll miss you…when you depart from my heart
Don’t forget me…
Don’t discard me…
Don’t mourn for me… 

Forgive me for wishing for your absence…
Please forgive me…
Please don’t give up on me…
Hear my side of the story… don’t turn the other direction…

I’m still training for perfection    

Run with me…until we arrive at home 
Hold my hand and we’ll take divine flight 
I’ve cherished you for so long
I’ve lead you to my home town – 
Do you remember where you and I belong?

I’ve given you my trust…
I’ve shared with you my dreams
You’re an apple to my eye

You were my angel of grace, promising concord –
Bestowing blessings upon me 
Your vitality never wears off…

You were my lamp – 
Glowing with serenity and elation
Tranquilizing my mind from despair and unease

I’ll never regret…meeting you that magnificent night 
I knew that that was love at first sight
The moment you stepped foot into the light

For My Love, Essence

I feel so happy and special sometimes,
When I think of you each night and day,
And when I see you, I see roses,
I love you more than words can say.....

You're so amazing! This love is everlasting!
I can't resist your cute laugh, it's true!
The rose and eternal bliss fade into shadows....
I am absolutely crazy for you!

Your soul is dark; your heart is warm,
And my heart is truly in your hands.
I could hug and kiss you' till life was done;
But you are the focus of my plans.

This neverending happiness is amazing my love,
And for you, Essence, I thank heaven above,

All my love, Da'Quan

Untitled 24

Running through my mind like Usain/
Losing my brain and going insane/
I don't know what you do to me girl/
Cause I always wanna give you the world/
So lucky that I met you, so blessed to be in love/
But why do I cry and shed tears like a dove

Now I kno the truth and it freakin hurts/
But I can't suppress my love, it never works/
I love you girl, you kno that's the truth/
You're so sweet, you indulge my sweet tooth/
(Rhythm changes)
But let me break it down and spit some real/
My only love rejects me and I can not deal/
Why? Because I'm not some Adonis/
Who she can admire and be astonish/
By, she can't see the loyalty I give/
And it sucks but I always forgive/
Deluded my mind, stuck in a trance/
Why Yailenys why, please give me a chance/
perfect minus the looks, why so shallow/
perfect relief to her love burns like aloe/

She Used to Mean A World to Me

She used to mean a world to me:
my soil, my sky, my sea,
she was my stay in trying times;
we did commit cool crimes.
Loving and learning what is right
and sometimes fighting all the night,
in freaky blast, our love did last;
she's now gone.

She used to mean a world to me:
the Sun and moon I always see,
she's always there all night and day,
we preen and play and pray.
Nothing compares to such a love,
daring and decent like a dove;
delightful dame in gainless game,
she's now gone.

She used to mean a world to me,
a friend faithful and free,
for her all words are not enough;
so tender, true and tough.
Describing her was a huge task,
but now I have questions to ask.
Is she a Doe, is she a Sow?
She's now gone.

She used to mean a world to me:
my butterfly, my  bee;
her glow brightens my tomorrows,
her sting brought me sorrows.
The waves of wishes  and wisdom
saved me from this thorny thraldom,
she suprised me, O I am free!
She's now gone.

sleepless nights

Sleeping restless
Cause I'm missing
That one thing

When I do sleep
I dream
Dreams that prevent me
From waking
Cause I wake to a empty room
With cold sweet
Cause your not
Next to me

I want to feel
Your soft lips
As they touch mine
I want to feel your body
As I hold you
Make you feel
your my world
I wish to wake next
To my queen
Even though
I'm just the court jester
But I do not jest when
I say this
Your my heart and world
I think of you
More then you can imagine
If I could paint you
You will be my Mona Lisa
If I could build you
You will be my 16th Chapel
If I could find you in history
I need to take every beauty that ever was
Put them together
And still they fall short
To what you are
You are
My Queen
You are 
My Heart 
You are 
My World

(For Ukadike Chimma)
That day I was but walking on my path, full of self-confidence,

heading towards a purpose I had set from my residence.

My humble head bowed low, I pressed forward in a haste,

yet I was mindful lest I outrun my chance to court a waste.

Leaving behind the sights and all that my back had brought

to face what my way’d unveil, I prepared even to be fought.

Forcefully my head was raised, for something had beckoned—

it was an irresistibly pretty figure I saw or so I had reckoned.

I gave a pause, poised to find what the distance would unfold,

little foreseeing I would enjoy defeat from what I set to behold.

The more it advanced the lesser my endurance and my strength.

I trembled: it was the first adventure facing me from this length.

I am a young soldier though, at home, in a haste, I’d left my wit,

and now struck helpless by her soothing hit, I am no more fit.

Have mercy, spare me, for all my skills I have lost or unlearned,

or take a wink to look away while I address the desire I discerned.

If I am blessed to accomplish this task, I shall be more than glad;

but If I fall casualty to the defeat of the challenge, I shall be sad,

for I have never before retreated from a duet of this kind all in vain,

yet if I can use up all I have left, I shall not care to manage a gain.

Now she’s near so it’s time I waved her a stop to give my best,

since I’ve got two awesome things—this task and a school test.

To pass one and fail the other (or miss one) is going to mean a crime.

God, help me here with overwhelming words as my tongue I prime,

because I must not exhibit a repelling style or make a worse blunder

and be displeased with  my waning military spirit if we’re put asunder.

Do you understand I can’t make out why I stand under your charm,

because it always takes place the other way round without any harm?

The ethereal lure radiating from this unblemished skin equals the cost

of your doting parentage, the root you grew from that mustn’t be lost.

Now you grow, grow and grow, while skeptics marvel as you soar tall

from the root of this tree that you must garden and see it doesn’t fall.

If you can disorientate me in this manner while I forget to remember

what I’m capable of,  you deserve kudos from January to December.

Because of waywardness my tongue should give way to my clever pen

which is mightier than the sword and be the spokesman of wise men.

It adores the spotless teeth you flaunt as a sign of mildness and peace;

appreciates the dazzling light in your eyes that reduces one to a piece;

and promises to smear your plumb cheeks with  deserving delight

by ensuring that you beam with dimples like the stars in the night.

Saturday Rain in Johannesburg

Saturday Rain in Johannesburg…

…With sighs of torrential passion,
the heavens shower teardrops,

weeping with me,
as memories of you come cascading back,

skin on skin, ablaze,
moist kisses, fiery,
gentle whispers of undying love, murmured,

in another life, another time,

far removed from my present, a desolate state of despair,
wallowing in the grime.


The rain keeps falling,
each teardrop stinging my face,

tasting the salt on my lips,

I wonder, do you still remember the caresses of my fingertips,

between breathy confessions, and vows of eternal love,

before you left me, stranded on an island of solitude,

wounded as a wingless dove,

bereft of life,
stripped of all traces of fortitude

Every call I get
I ignore, praying its you
Please make this come true

Culture of Love

In culture of love tenderness abounds Those loved have plenty of respect given True friendship gives pure love without a sound Loving pride shows their lives as driven They walk in the moonlight on a stone path Moon is cascading its light onto them Pleasure and peace is felt instead of wrath She’s given a rose, with thorns on the stem This night love is shared between the couple Beauty lights up from the moon’s gracious glow Culture allows romance that’s quite subtle Two hearts meld to one, love beats, and they know The romance within the land is truthful Love bleeds from the rose thorns, the passion builds The heart doesn’t leave without feeling full Power is the strength of the love that they wield

What am I missing

You gave me everything – always have, always will.
I have everything I need.
I have everything I should want.
Why am I not happy?
What am I missing? Am I? Or do I just think I am?

Our investment in each other will make us rich,
In more ways than one.
We are the ‘real deal’.  I know we are.
I know you love me, value me, respect me, are proud of me.
Why don’t I feel it?
What am I missing? What don’t I see?

I’m living in sepia. 
I’ve seen the colour, but it’s gone. How can I get it back?
All the ingredients are there.
We are each other’s one.
I am guilty.  You have given me all of you, all the time.
I fear you don’t have all of me.
What am I missing?

I love you. I need you. I have you – my home, my safety blanket, my inspiration.
Why don’t you have all of my heart?
I’m trying to give it to you. It’s like it’s not mine.
Something is missing. I’m not letting you in.
That’s why I’m guilty. It’s not fair to you, you deserve it all, and more.
Why can’t I? What am I missing?!!

Please help.  I love you. I want you – I know I do.
But I’m not happy, not always, not most of the time.
Half the time I don’t know why, half the time I do.
It’s sometimes you, or is it me after all?
What am I missing?

My Lady

My lady of convolution 
You’re the one that called my soul
 To trace the path of no return 
Leaving me in haze
 Unable to seek your voice
My lady I know you not 
Yet you stole my presence
 My mind my heart my pen
 All I can think all I can write
 Mastering your manoeuvers 

My lady I heard of your pain
 A scar that ever will remain
 Your fear is reasoned
 Though downfall is not your mode 
For your eyes are sparkling with ire
My lady I’ll yield not
 Though time has a say
 Time ain’t on our side
 Must act must decide
 For we are destined to die
My lady I adore you 
For whom you are
 And that of your beliefs
 Rather than whom you belong to 
And the clan you breathe
My lady hear me not 
For my words are my enemies
 My love is my warrior
 My battle has just started
 My Gain or lose are chapters of glory
My lady you’ll ever be
 A girl that turned a myth into realm

Unseen Images

Words unspoken mendin hearts that were once broken
solid souls intwined together
meant for love that last forever
same sex battle but we fight side by side
showing the world we have nothing to hide
in the end we have won yet it's just the beginning
a factor of life for we all do our sinning
no regrets just emotions I can feel in my gut
I believe in our love an I'll never give up
so you know that I mean you just know that its real
unseen image yet its just how I feel..

Listen to these words that I have to say

I wish I could hold you in my arms
To always have you in my life
To have our love never end
Just you and I...

Strawberry flavored lipstick and Canada dry

She used to wear 
tasty strawberry gloss lipstick
on her soft warm tender lips
and sometimes Canada dry
for me to sip
It lured me like a moth to a flame
But even without
her sweet kisses drove me insane
Trying to quench the unquenchable thirst
of hearts desire.

These Salty Waves Pt 1

What am I supposed to think? What am I supposed to say? All these lies you bottled up come sweeping, crashing with the tides. My footing's gone, the ocean real, but how am I supposed to feel? And here I am, a drowning mess, a loveless lie, I do protest. And here I am a drowning mess. So all those things you said to me? Where they just lies out of pity? So all those things you said to me? Or am I lost in salty waves? Yes I know my future's grave. Or am I lost in salty waves?And now the panic in my head, when I should be tucked up in your bed, reels and reels right here instead.I'm going down, a sinking ship, funny what name drips off my lips. It is not God, or Angles plenty, or even that I'm just damn ready To let go of the hell and the lies. I'm wishing for your gentle eyes. Or at least the way they always seemed, but perhaps that's just this salty dream. I have no clue what I'm to do! A drowning hopeless mess, for you-- think it's cute, and oh so funny, but here's the bitter truth now honey. I'm going down. There is no help. I can't be saved by God himself. I put my life, my whole world of trust, and you've thrown it away for lust. Well what the hell's a girl to do? I'm just so entranced by you!

what are you doing when you call her everyday
what are you doing when you know just what to say

what are you doing when you walk with her on the beach
what are you doing when her walls you start to siege

what are you doing when you hold her hand while driving
what are you doing when her emotions you're reviving

what are you doing when you stare into her eyes
what are you doing when for you she breaks her ties

what are you doing when you hug her oh so tight
what are you doing when you become her only light

what are you doing when you tell her that shes the one
what are you doing when her love you've finally won

what are you doing when you tell her, I Love You

First Love

First Love

I though about my very first love last night
I dreamed I hugged and kissed her... And squeezed her so tight

On several occasions she still comes to mind
The girl who I kissed for the very first time

I know she still rents a place in my heart
Even though time and distance has kept us apart

I know when I think of her it's a romantic sin
Then I realize... I will never see her again

She was my first love that burning love you see
The love she gave stole the boyhood from me

So many years later she's still in my dreams
I can actually feel her soft it seems

I can't forget her regardless of time
Out of nowhere she still comes to mind

Last time we met was many years ago
Its a simple love....I'm sure you know

It's a gut sinking feeling sometimes for sure
For your very first love they say there's no cure

Like I said before..she still comes to mind
The girl who I kissed for the very first time

Victoria Gash

I have wondered,
I have searched,
For as long as time,
Feeling lonely,
Wondering how long is time,
When time would end,
When sorrow and fear,
And sadness and anger,
At times end,
Becoming desperate,
To find the right time,
Making the wrong time,
And learning how to make the right time,
Is to be patient,
To find the right time,Like finding the right one,
Well,I found the right time,
The one,
Time has ended,
Now I know,
How long time is,
Because time has ended,
My wondering is over,
My searching is over,
Time has ended,
Now that the one is found,
I don't have fear,
I don't have anger,
Or sadness,
Or even sorrow,
I am no longer lonely,
The one,
To rest in her arms,
To stroke her cheek,
To gaze into her eyes,
To hold her hand,
I can finally rest,
I can finally stop time,
Who needs time,
In the arms,
Of the one you love,
With Victoria,
I have no need to run,
I have no great dreams,
I am content,
I am home.

The final destiny

As the plane takes off in the blue sky
I’m leaving my home and life behind
And I am going to meet the girl I love
And together a new future we will find

I am nervous going in a strange land
As the engine of the plane starts
But so excited to see her for the first time
And hug her and feel the beat of our hearts

We have waited so long for this day
Now its just distance by 13 hours of flight
And I feel like kid going to a candy shop
Knowing my dreams is coming true tonight

I like to hear her voice when she says
You are going to see just an ordinary girl
And I would tell her no way 
You are the most beautiful girl in the world

And she would laugh and you’re crazy
And she would make some funny emotes
And then will say please take care of yourself
And If it’s cold make sure to wear a thick coat

Yes she is a person like that
Taking care of me form so far away
And now just a few hours from now
Going to look in her eyes for the first time today

And I know I will just melt in her presents 
Just like the snow in the morning sun
And my heart will be fill love an emotions
As the joy of our new life has now began

And I could never return home again
And ever leave you behind
So if you want to live here or in New York
Doesn’t matter for our happiness we’ve already find

To walk, to play, to talk, to hold, to cook
Every little thing that I get to do with you
Will be timeless precious memories
To cherish our whole life through
And on the day that we get married
And we take our wedding vows together
Will protect, cherish and cover you
With my love from any kind of weather

For your love has made me complete
And I feel strong as the lion in the wild
And can’t wait to see the glow in your eyes
As you becomes pregnant with our first child

As you start to eat a lot and smiles
Saying do you think i look like a fatty
And I will kiss you on your sweet lips
And say you are always looking perfect to me

The plane has arrived and I walk out customs
And the most beautiful woman smiles at me
And when she holds me in her arms
My life has reach its final destiny

Dash's Flames and fire

I stand alone so far away,
waiting for the day to stay.
I bring my hand forward my hand a blaze,
watching the fade of day.
"Where is he?" I ask,

"Dash!" He calls,
I rush to him without a doubt.
My flames twirl around us,
with every sweet kiss that bounds us.
I love my flames and fire.

How Do You Know She Loves You

If she says “I love you”, on the roller coaster
Moments after she saw you
Soil your shirt
She loves you.

If you find yourself at a karaoke bar
And she insists on singing a duet,
Then she picks ‘Just You and I’
But insists on singing the Eddie Rabbitt part
And when it is over, says,
“Let’s have a big hand for Crystal Gayle”
While pointing to you, and
She gives you a high-five,
She loves you.

If she dances with your friends
Without looking at you,
She loves you.

If she hides your shoes
Because you are late for work,
Then makes you hunt for them,
And watches you grow angrier,
Before she goes to the stove
Flips it open to reveal the shoes,
Laughing as you lace them with a scowl,
She loves you.

If she calls you later in the afternoon
Just to ask
“How are those shoes working out for you?”
She loves you.

If she wants you to see her
Playing with babies,
Showing you expressions
That ask your opinion,
She loves you.

After she has seen your worst,
Whether it be drunk or foolish
Or both,
If she waits a month or so
Before telling your friends,
She loves you.

If she never tells her friends,
She loves you a lot.

If she ever screams the words,
“I hate you!” at you,
She loves you.
Or, she once did.

If you try to get even for the shoes
And hide something of hers,
And of course she finds it,
When she looks at you
With eyes that hold no pity,

And says, “I love you.”
She loves you.

If she really loves you,
There is no way you could not know.
You will wake up to find her staring at you,
Enter a room to find her smelling your shirt.
She will call at any hour, “just to talk,”
She will laugh with you when your jokes are funny,
Or at you when they are not.
If she look past all of your faults
And keeps looking,
She loves you.

If she tells you, how she misses her mom,
Or how much she regrets fights with her brother,
She loves you.

If she tells you what you need to hear
Instead of what you want to hear,
She not only loves you,
She respects you.

Brushing the hair from your face
 Watching you as you sleep
 The very light that fills my soul
 Sleeping right next to me
 Places my hand on your chest
 Gently rubbing your heart
 As if to heal it 
 Mending all the cracks and scars
 Kissing your lips
 As if to heal the pain that formed upon them
 Pecking your eye
 Healing it from all the tears you once cried
 Grabbing your heart and placing it in a jar
 Placing it back into your chest
 Building brick around the jar in your chest
 Keeping you safe from all the hurt and pain
 its when we decided to love eachother 
 That i realized we were perfect for one another
 You are my new soul
 You are my new air that i breathe
 You are the sunshine i see in the mornings
 And the bright stars i see in the night
 i love you to all eternity <3

simply you


funny how time fly so fast
i know there are things that never last
but how amazing it is to see
you sitting here, beside me.

you've seen me at my worst
you've heard the way i cursed
how i blame you for stupid things. 
you just kiss me, or so it seems

the way you laugh at my childish ways
the way you kiss my fears away
they way you hold my hand in the rain
i know that things will be okay. 

you treat things so smoothly
for that i admire you so dearly
we may not know, what will come in our way
but i know for sure,  i love you in your own little ways..

Bruised Ego

I lusted after Deborah from my first day at school.                 
As did every other boy, her looks made them all drool.
On Valentines I sent a card despite my inhibition.
She responded with a churlish smile that set me on a mission,
I asked her for a date and she replied “well, that depends…
…in fact, on second thoughts, I’d rather we were Just Friends”

Broken Smoke

  The shisha lays warm, and shattered
The bowl empty, the floor wet,
Embers hissing as water seeps into its core.

  Before it's demise, it's smoke drifted between us,
Our lips pulled the flavor from its heated center,
Silly gurgles for my efforts, silent bubbles for yours.

  A cold night, a warm hand, words between us,
Time and smoke ebbing, swirling, drifting.
Our eyes sparking a heat greater than the coals.

  Sharing a pipe warm, and indulgent,
My lips tasting the residue of your lipstick,
Fingers linger on one another, as we pass the stem.
  Hearts race courtesy of nicotine, blood infused with 
Chemicals of our creation.  As we move closer to each
Other forgetting the narcotic between us.
  Bodies entangled, whispers loud in our ears, hands
gripping flesh, mouth gripping lips, movement
wild, uncontrolled,perfumed skin tingling.
  Undressed, rampant breaths, heat and smoke
Rising, not from tobacco and coal, but from 
Friction of skin, warm and volatile.
  Passion in waves, reckless arms and legs thrashing
Knocking ourselves into the prone.  A careless move,
Teetering glass and aluminum, tipping to a crash. 
  The shisha is shattered and warm,
The bowl empty, the floor wet,
The embers hiss as we cool next to each other.

our entwined souls

Here I stand,
gazing at the ripples of pond;
cool breeze hitting against my face,
reminding me of what we share,
our love bond;
with the hint of twilight over your face,
Reddened cheeks and roseate lips;
you entwined your soul with mine,
enjoying the mood with blush, smile and winks;
two years have passed since that blissful moment,
and we rode through many lows and highs;
but we held ourselves together,
whether we met the chuckles of joy or separation's sighs;
And a brook giggled nearby,
changed the course of my thought;
I looked at the horizon;
and many sweet memories, to me, it brought;
your pouted lips being rubbed by mine,
our bodies joined emitting luster of crystalline,
the tight and warm embrace I take you into;
you are all over my mind,
no matter what do I do;
Every time I feel weak or alone,
the gush of your soul brings me home;
I know you are mine,
and can make out your face,
even in life of mist or dew;
For that,
I promise my baby,
I am gonna stand by your side and love you.

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today

Fifty-Seven Years Ago Today

With new dress and suit, flowers, and hair fixed just right
The dreams, plans, and labors of our lives would unite

My brother and his gal stood beside us on the spot
To give witness to the world that we tied the knot

We stood nervous before the preacher at his home
Promised to cling to each other; never to roam

Said “I do” to the questions; gave the preacher his pay
Man and wife; fifty-seven years ago today.

When Our Paths Crossed

It does not seem like that long ago
When you and I first met one another
It was at that convention in Orlando
When our paths crossed each other

I looked deep into your blue eyes
And right then and there
I immediately fell for you
You had fiery red hair

And the sweetest personality
That I had the privilege to get to know
And if it had not of been
For that convention in Orlando

I do not think that you and I
Would have ever met each other
And today I feel like the luckiest guy
On the face of this planet

Because you are soon to be my wife
You are my fiancé,
My best friend and the love of my life
And it is all because of God,

That convention and destiny
I wonder nearly every day
Why you are with me
But I just smile and keep on loving you

I want a heart with wings
Like butterflies
Fluttering away into the azure sky
Kissing the clouds
Flitting about careless
I want a soul that cries
Like the skies opening up
Rain falling down in a tidal wave
Washing up on shore
The ocean opening it's hungry mouth
Collecting seashells like I love you's
I want a body like a tree
Strong and steady
That you can carve your name into
So it grows with me
High into the sun
I want a love like time
Never ending
Where laughs are the seconds
Hugs are the minutes
And kisses are the hours
I want a life with you
A one where I say I do
Not just on our wedding day
But everyday
When I come home 
Melting into you arms 
Getting lost in each other
Like a butterfly in the sky
A storm in the night
And a tree in the forest

Baby Girl

I write this  for my sweet Baby Girl,
    Who means more to me now then anything in this world .
How she can make me smile and laugh out loud,
    Never has a woman ever made me feel so prideful & proud.
These dreams I have of her each and all of my nights.
    Awakens me every single day feeling so good and right .
For so many years I have waited for this day ,
    Finally a woman that makes me feel this way.
So filled with so much joy as my heart constantly glows,
    And those who see me will never doubt this  I know.
This beautiful and most wonderful Sweet Baby Girl,
    Is all I will ever want or need in this whole world.

Thoughts Of You

Bright and beautiful thoughts of you 
fill my head

Like brilliantly colored flowers 
In hues of yellow, 
purple and red

Sweet aromas 
soft and pleasing 
Tickling my nose, 
playfully teasing

A hint of rainfall 
lingers in the air
As a soft gentle breeze 
tussle’s my hair

Your loves vibrant rainbow 
arches high above 
As your sun shines down over me 
With calm soothing love

Illuminating my soul 
that now shines from within
As bright beautiful thoughts of you
Fill my head once again.

Someone to watch over me while I sleep.
Someone who will all my secrets keep.

Someone to hold me while I cry.
Someone to mourn me when I die.

Someone who'll help me conquer my fears.
Someone to help against arrows and spears.

Someone who will help me do what's right.
Someone to be my guiding light. 

Someone to lead me when I don't know.
Someone to lift me when I am low.

Someone who listens when I talk.
Someone who follows whether I run or walk.

Someone who can make me smile.
Someone who is willing to just sit awhile.

Someone to teach me something new.
Someone to help me struggle through.

Someone who encourages me to be me.
Someone who sees what I can't see.

Someone to always point out the good.
Someone to say, "I always knew you could."

Someone who will love me all through life.
Someone to stay in peace or strife.

Someone who loves. Someone who cares.
Someone who will always be there.

Someone to do all these things and more.
Someone I can do all these for.

The Swaying of the Grass



A path leads,

to where wild grass grows,


sashaying in the summer breeze.




Along the path,
lightness settles within,


feeling the grass,
tickling ankles,


swaying to the lilting bird-song,

in a dance of intimate abandon,


brushing the remnants of pain away.




Melodies float across fields of green,

delicately caressing my heart,


teasing emptiness to flee,

comforting the mind,


to silently be.




Walking on,
savouring the peace,


a momentary respite,
from the burdens of the now,


all is quiet,


a stillness cradling fractured emotions,


the grass in the fields sway,


dusk descends,


shadows lengthen,


nudging dimming light to take leave,


of the day

shes the key

You seem to ignore me and all I have to say.
I can't help it so I'll tell you anyway.
Life before you had turned so numb.
There were no smiles, no laughs only sadness would come.
My days were empty and were often spent alone.
The demons constantly reminding me that I'm on my own.
Coming to terms that my heart no longer had a beat.
Looking at the facts I knew I was incomplete.
Locked in a world that was long dead to me.
Crying on the inside cause to the lock there was no key.
To this living hell I had been enslaved.
Praying for a miracle I longed to be saved.
Time went by and the days turned into night.
I gave up on hope I knew I was losing this fight.
Then one day it was much like the rest.
She came to me and placed her ear upon my chest.
It made me unsure cause no beat could be heard.
She said I'm your miracle I give you my word.
I opened my eyes to awake from a dream.
It felt so real or so it seemed.
The girl from my dream I knew her from some place.
I recognized her voice but I didn't see her face.
The seasons changed from summer to fall.
I started to doubt my dream maybe there's no miracle after all.
Then one evening it was late October.
I was messaging an old friend and invited her over.
We met at a store that was about a mile away.
I got in with her so nervous I didn't no what to say.
We talked for hours it all went so great.
Time flew by and the evening turned late.
I got to share this before I can write more.
I've never told a soul about this before.
An hour or so after she left is when it dawned on me.
It was my dream it was her face I didn't see.
Life with her has been a romantic fairytale.
We've been up we've been down trying times designed to make us fail.
Miles now find there way in between.
I'll never give up after the love I seen.
Your my proof that dreams come true.
I'll do my best to fulfill your dreams to.
I'll do all I can day in and day out.
Cause life with you is what its about.
You have breathed new life into my soul.
From incomplete you made me whole.
Only with you is when the demons seem at bay.
Your the only one that makes me truly feel OK.

Pisces and Leo

We never really were a great couple,
just a pair of blind lovers, persons
playing with the stars,
hoping to make them cross.
We say we'll change,
that were trying,
but we keep leaving our footsteps
in the desert sand
at twilight.
And we keep telling ourselves
that things get clearer
the darker our surroundings become.
we never really were a great couple,
just amazing, beautiful, caring persons.

Her Smile

Lips, pink like painted roses,
Part to unveil
The shine of her compassion.

Cheeks dimple as
Her smile
Unfurls across the
Perfect canvas.

Eyes, new moons
On a cloudless night,
Pull her into my heart.

Close Enough To You or I want to, But I Won't 20140504

I can’t get close enough to you,
My friend.  I want to, but I won’t.
It’s enough to just dance with you;
Could take it further, but I don’t.

I might not be what you expect.
I can’t get close enough to you,
My girl.  To treat you with respect,
I won’t take advantage of you.

If, forever, I’d be with you,
I’ll faithfully hold that line.
I can’t get close enough to you,
My love.  But someday you’ll be mine.

I chose to spend, with you my life.
Now that we’ve both said “I do”,
Each time that we make love, my wife,
I can’t get close enough to you.

A lonely sleep

And this sadness creeps into my heart, 
never did I think we'd have to sleep apart,

I wait for moonlight, and wipe away the shine of tears, 
counting the moments till you are here.

Sun and Stars

They say never stare at the sun, but I can't bare to look away,
Even if it leaves me blind for the rest of my days.
I stare solemnly until the sun explodes on the horizon and dark grows the sky.
Its light dies down but however does not cease.
It's almost as if it cannot bare to say goodbye,
So it spreads itself across the darkness piece by piece.
Stars or so they are called light up the way at night.
They have a way of causing my heart to ignite,
And set it ablaze with a burning desire.
I feel lifted as if my heart is soaring higher.
That is when I feel the warmth of your skin,
And I realize now after all this time where I have been.
I now realize all I have seen does not reside in the sky,
For my sun and stars live in one place and that is in your eyes.

Not The Same

I know what we used to have was really beautiful,
We trusted and believed in each other and were so truthful.
Than something happened, something very bad,
I'd rather get pissed off or angry, but this time it mad me sad. 

My mind is clouded and I can't think strait anymore,
I don't know what's going on with me but it hurts me to the core. 
I know that this is just another depression poem for you,
But if this is the only way I can talk to you than I'll say what's true. 

You meant so much to me, I would of traded the heavens for you,
But now I don't know what to do anymore, I feel like my heart got the flu. 
Its really not easy writing this right now cause the blood fills my eyes and its a blur,
My hands shaking like I never felt them shake before. 

Remembering your skin rub against mine makes me even more sad,
Cause now I know that I wont ever be this mad.
I cried for you and I prayed for you, but you still and went and done me wrong,
I don't know if that was a sign from you to make me tough or strong. 

Well I can tell you this though, this feeling will stay, 
Cause I don't know what it meant to you, but to me it was my last day.
So, I am sorry for writing this, but this is what I have to claim,
And not ever forget that this will never be the same.

For Her

These words unspoken
A vow unbroken

I made it in silence
Kept my thoughts quiet

But the way I feel
I cannot conceal

You’re a rare gemstone in the sea
It’s you I want right next to me

Everywhere I am and everywhere I go
I care for you and love you so

When I look at you, you’re all I see
It’s you I want my life to be

You’re always so kind
And you’re always on my mind

My heart jumps, like someone pulled a lever
So if I say I love you, can I keep you forever?

*For her, and only her

We Watch With Tears In Our Eyes

the droplets of memories
both unwanted and loved,
they carry our strengths,
with glimpses of what we think we cannot do,
in a vision,
never tangible like the
bars we use to box ourselves,
we do so to keep the
memories out.
They obscure his watchful eyes,
so that what he doesn't see
are the clocks with no numbers,
and instead truth at twelve,
false at six.
In joy he sees the smiling plays
upon a persons face,
yet he doesnt identify
with the actors
as playing the role
assigned to them,
but instead the characters,
masterfully designed by the
thoughts and plans of harm
they wish to do;
to cause him to shut down.
To take the world around him
and squander his life;
he takes it
and those of the loved ones
around him.
The clock points at six.
In sorrow he forgets his love;
forgets the beauty that
he has been given to
change loved ones fortunes,
hes like a child at play,
whose love radiates,
filling the cold floor
andsteel bars of a 
playground left for time
with the orange hue of
wanted energy.
But his obscured eyes
look on the loss of love
and pity for the misfortune
given to him.
And with the bars he ruins more love,
creating the cycle of depression once more,
in another seemingly beautiful heart.
The clock points at twelve.
She comes into his life,
with the knowledge of love
given to her because
she accepted Him.
and she gives to him what
no one cared to give;
a love so unconditional,
so that his moments
in which he forgot himself,
and turn to scar those he loved
never changed her ways.
She was like an owl,
with her own watchful eyes
she watched upon another,
as to create balance upon his life.
And she had her own memory filled tears,
he never hesitated to return the love
he gave her.
And so the cycle of the clock ceased to exist
in the lives of two
so intertwined.
And time was never again a problem,
since the slept on
with watchful,
never tearful

Reasons i love you

You're perfect in every single way I don't understand how you can not see that. From head to toe. When you speak angels sing from above. Just the most beautiful girl i have ever come across in this life time. To even think that their is a girl who compares to you, is a sin in its own right. The words you read here are just a very small part that makes you, you, the girl i have fallen in love with.

Slow Death

It rolled off my tongue like a tumbleweed, 
and you stood there dazed. 
A disease waiting for the injection.
 I laughed. 
Not because I hated you, 
but because there was nothing 
left to do but watch the reality of
 the world sink into your bones. 
You finally understood why the 
stones you throw fall into the lake. 
Not because of gravity,
 but because they're old souls 
too tired of keeping their heads above water.
 Just like us. 
We were drowning each other. 
Maybe love is too dense, 
maybe mankind too shallow?  
Or maybe we're just a bunch of filthy 
 animals that should have never came up 
with such a fairy tale like love in the first place.
 But we did, 
and here we are in the midst of a chapter
 barely breathing between sighs 
that lie to us both. 
Bodies that yearn for one another 
knowing that we admittedly barely adjust
 each day to the other's mental inclinations.
 Heavy with lust our souls twist,
 bend, and almost break under the 
feeling that made them come alive. 
It has become an infection! 
"I don't know how I'm going to survive you."

Behind the Scenes

Give me a moment, just one more in time.
I'll give you a love dear, I'll make it divine.
Yet I have some problems, like you'd never believe.
Stand around long enough, and maybe you'll see...
All of these things that are wrong with me.
Right now you say you love me, I doubt that it's true.
People like me just don't deserve people like you.
I know what you're thinking, how strange I must seem...
To someone that doesn't live in the same world as me.
Maybe you're different, you might stick around.
But wht take my chances, when I'd much rather drown?
Then you call me selfish, for this joke about my life...
Yet you know nothing of the pressure of being a girlfriend,
with no intentions of ever becoming anybodys wife.
That's quite enough though, no more about me.
I would gladly become what you asked me to be.
If you promise to love me, forever and always...
If your actions prove to me something I never knew...
I will some day become yours in eternity.

A tear falls down my face
He looks at me and wipes it away
Grabs my hand 
And we begin to walk
The rain is falling
And the thunder burst
I feel so alone
Even tho he guides me along the way
His leather jacket covering me
Like it did every day
But today is not like it was before
the love I once felt doesn’t exist any more
The rain is cold and I begin to shake
The water covers my entire face
We see the end
Of the rode and us
But the rain continues
While I take the leather jacket off

This Is The Girl

I sat in the floor one night,
Suddenly I began to cry,
I needed that someone special,
I felt like I wanted to die.

I was alone on my bedroom floor,
Shivering in disgust,
I knew she was out there,
Being patient was a must.

I then stood up,
Feeling relieved and strong,
I was waiting for this girl,
Staying single couldn't be wrong!

I then promised myself,
The next girl would be my last,
It didn't turn out that way,
But greater things have come in my life fast!

I look at this girl now,
And think "this is who I asked for that night",
I am so glad I got up off the floor,
Because this is the girl that was in my sight!

Love descending upon an Angel

Looking up at the sky, up in the air so high
Moving like a bird, time fiercely passing by.
You and I together, at each others side
Waiting for a full moon, until the highest tide.

To you my dearest, my true love for you is so
Love only for my angel, I love you more than you know.
I want to be with you so much, I'll risk anything for you
For you are my only true angel, this I tell you is true.

Through the intertwining touch, of our interlocking hands
Our life together just began, our future which expands.
For my someone special, the person I can not live without
Shall I lose my angel of god, my life as is shan't go about.

I tip my hat off, to you I call my dearest
You are my angel, I see that as the clearest.
For you are my treasure, the one I hold so dear
To you I must admit, we're together now and here.

Our love is like a sapling, growing into the strongest tree
Which will continue growing forever, the same as you and me.
What you unconditionally have done, you've illuminated my soul
It's you and your true compassion, that has recreated me whole.

Shall I say to my angel, that you are through and through
I hope that some day, your angel in me will be shown to you.
My wish upon a wish, you and i always together
Descending from the sky, like a pure angel's falling feather.

Thoughts of you surround,
You're the beating of my heart,
The love you give defines me,
My life no longer dark,
You give your hand so sweetly,
I am lost if you're away,
You have me so completely,

Without your breath I cannot live,

For in your arms I'm always home,
So happy and so proud,
Never a day you'll feel alone,
And I'll yell it oh so loud.....

Give me love

Lately I've been waking up alone
I just wanna hold you
we can play hide n seek 
all I wanna do is lay next to you.
It's been awhile
Sense I'll held you
Maybe I should let you go
All I want is to taste your lips
I know the best thing to do is to let you go.
But my heart isn't ready too
Maybe tonight I'll call ya
Just to say Hi!
All I want is for us to go back the way where before
But I know it's all in my mind.
I know it's been years
But I just can't let you go
Give me love
Give me a Second chance

Crisp, fresh footsteps on the
smooth serene picture of
snow darkened by night.
They ruin the blanket of
nature left by the
flurries in the midts of winter
with a new beauty,
in which I find more attractive.
The crisp, fresh footsteps of your
departure leave me to ponder
on the questions at trial in your mind;
Have you enjoyed the day,
the cook-off at church,
sleeping at your grandmothers,
eating at mine?
and the safety of your journey
back to your warm, messy bed.
I sit on the edge of my own,
waiting for the return of the
crisp, fresh footsteps
one snowy day.

Stolen gifted heart on Christmas

Slowly awaking out of bed, me to you I say
It's a quiet beautiful morning, on Christmas day.
Getting dressed in comfort, walking down the stairs
Seeing the tree lit, opening gifts like nobody cares.

Having you open your gifts, with amazing haste
Seeing that bright smile, upon your gazing face.
My lonely heart was the gift, you stole from me
I gave you the only way to my heart, a golden key.

I ask what are you going to do, with the key to me
I shall protect it with my love, I was told by thee.
Looking near into the future, us together as a family
Instead of screwing up young, doing stuff daringly.

I wish for you to listen, to what I always have to say
My love for you still grows, with each and every day.
As white as a shining Christmas, as beautiful as a dove
There are no bounds, for my undying wishful love.

Life gives amazing gifts, life anxiously gave me you
You were an early gift to me, for Christmas it's so true.
You are my Christmas angel, you are my world's entity
Your going to call me nuts, but I believe this is destiny.

The day after the beauty, I’m wishing you saw
how much of you I missed, you at my side in ah.
Stolen gifted heart on Christmas, truth said to be
Frightening Gifts of mysteries, I can't wait till we see.

My future princess

I'm waiting for the girl of my dreams to come into my life. 
For I know when I look in her eyes everything feels right. 
The rhythm of my heart beat matches hers. 
I want to become best friends before lovers, 
and when I know she's the one I will proceed to her father. 
Asking him if I can lover her forever and ever. 
I'll get on one knee and propose to her crying. 
Not of tears of sadness but tears of thankfulness. 
And when she's finally mine I will love her like no other, 
even when she asks me if she can be a mother. 
And even after many years, 
I will still lover her through every fight and tear. 
We will be that old couple you see holding hands, slowly walking down the street. 
I pray to God my heart is the first one to stop the beat, 
because I know without her I could not go on. 
So princess where ever you are, don't give up. 
My heart is here waiting and I cant say I love you enough.

the doors

love of my life
the heart of the gold
the crystal handle
to my love door
she opened them wide
and gave a huge smile
and shined her light
in my dead life
she opened me 
with tears of grace
and she made me realize
that i got to fight every way
stand my ground
and not let me down
for i was in tears
for all the break
and then she came
and made me alive again
she made my heart beat
and my lungs breath 
she gave me everything
which was what i need
for to come back
and socialize once more
she has made the pain
run away
never to come back
or return anymore
she made my life
as a prince or a knight
with all loyalty and might
she brought me my life
back from the grave
were my doors were sealed
and i thought no one
would try to revel
my batter and bashed
a heart as you may
she is fixing it right now
and making it great  
thanks to her
i am alive again

Simply Glamorous

Sunlight blossoms in her finery
Of starlight’s spellbinding joy,
Eden’s promised wishful dream
Of ravishing rainbows adorned,

Renowned in her celestial best
Of heaven’s enduring surprise
Nirvana’s dearest loving vision
Of bliss’s glorious flame reborn,

Wonder sleeps in her embrace
Of happily ever after fairytales
Shangri-la’s endearing tapestry
Of enchanted dreams foretold,

Nature happily sings in her honor
Of paradise’s magic heart songs
Heaven’s breathtaking serenade
Of everlasting love stories retold,

Love dances in her heart of hearts
Of her beloved’s dreams come true
Forever’s joyful enchanting dream
Of true perfection bonded in love,

Breathlessly entwined in her touch
Of Love’s blissful cherished paradise 
Passion’s precious beloved pearl
Of oneness heaven-sent from above.

The New Me

When your eyes I see
I catch a reflection of the new me
when I see your expression
it's as if God has taught me a life-long lesson.

what is this lesson?
You wanna know?
It's that I remain
beside the brightest glow

the light that you are
has left me scarred
with happiness and protection
as you have taught me this lesson

In the mirror
I take another look
you have opened my life's book
because for the first time
I can call you mine

The look on your face
shows there isn't a race
I've found where I belong
so I'll be with you life-long.

Pink Carnations

For Carole

Whenever there would seem to be
A serious argument between you and me
Or to ease the pain of a fight 
And make the ugly seem the right

I never had a love before
That I could pamper, love, adore...
I thought you understood
Those times that things weren't going good

You did
For awhile
It would always make you smile
We'd make up and forget the night before
Those times I'd bring a pink carnation to your door

You said, "No man ever loved me before."
And I could see
It wasn't that you didn't love me
They ceased to erase the pain
Those pink carnations I brought to your door

All the hours and money spent
Buying flowers to hide mistakes I never meant
If only I had spent more time
In loving you
Maybe you would now be mine.

Our love is a: Broken Melodies, Barking Hound Dogs and Guilty Lawyers

We've hit a bump;
the melodies and notes that
resemble the feelings of our love
hang in the air broken,
and the silence looms over us
like fog in a cemetery.
It's easier to remember the
difference in all equations than
what reoccurs;
and so our hound dogs,
like our past fights
keep us up at night with eh
passing thoughts of
"should I be here?" and
"Is it worth it?"
And so we explain our case;
the lawyers inside us that
never wish to lose a fight,
all lawyers are guilty.
There never will be a time,
when two songs of
different tempos will make a
Let's start humming the same tune,
and break the broken desires.

Today even the February sky is shimmering red;
a little shoppe of flower with a sign, " No Smoking, Please. "
carries my favorite roses tendered by friendly Fred...
the ones my tender and loving Valentine likes to receive.

With hundreds of pretty roses, it should be an easy task; 
I browse and get lost in their beautiful colors;
Sherry approaches me noticing I hesitate to ask,
" Hi, handsome...let me help you choose the perfect roses! "

Those yellow, purple, white and blue ones don't seem to ignite fantasy, 
but the flaming red ones stand out as inflamed hearts seeking passion;
" Do you like these? Are they for your fiance, or wife? She kindly asks me. 
I reply with an air of mystery, " No, they are for my secret admirer, Lynn! "

Love ladden lust

I love you but fear
you might not bear
the burden of pleasure
I will provide you for sure

you are more than the world
for your touch and behold
I could do anything
for the happiness to bring

alas! you did't get me
and trying to be free
the love ladden lust
blew away in a gust

Around Town

Written August 10, 2013

My darling
Where have you been tonight
She said I've been around town
I've been around town all night
Shooting craps with the girls
Where the women wear pearls that glisten so bright in your eyes
At that casino with the fountain as high as the sky

I guess you came home with penniless pockets
You say tonight wasn't your night
But that story holds as much water
As an ark made of paper
The ocean falls right through the floor
The ark floored by a screen door

Cause I've seen you out by that old familiar highway
The one where I picked you up
In that van we spent our first night
But that promise you made me you haven't kept
To settle down and don't go around town tonight
'Round town tonight, 'round town tonight

But you just couldn't stay away
From where the red light shines so bright
So you could feel high as that fountain
Higher than a mountain tonight
But I'm here patiently waiting
For my darling to come home tonight

To Her, From Me

You’re such a beauty and always willing
Your gaze itself is oh so giving
Without a mask you came to see
What rightfully would and should always be

And here we stand our fingers locked
How can the world look on so shocked?
To know that you found happiness
Wouldn’t you know, it’s priceless.

Celebration and Pride

See my hands bound
so tight
Securely hidden
Behind my back
So I just sit here
and fight

You don't know how
it is to be gay
In an society
Where you have to
Your love everyday

You don't know how
hard I try
To show you that
I am no different
That if you cut me I
still will cry

You see how I fight
I do this
Every day
And every night

I will not back down
No matter how hard
you push
I will 
Stand my ground

I will not sit back
and wait
For a group of
business men
And religious
To seal my fate

This is the 21st
But still you fear 
What we don't know
Not understanding we
want to be free

We want to dance in
the street
We want to walk down
the aisle
A smile on all faces
As everyone comes up
to their feet

I will not stop
until I see it that
Until I can look at
my spouse
Whoever he or she
may be
 And proudly say
Look at us babe
We are free today!

This is for all
struggling members
of the LGBTQ
community whether
you are out and
proud or still
hiding behind closed
doors remember there
is always someone
out there for you.
You are not alone in
this battle. I
strongly urge anyone
who needs to talk
about coming out or
just everyday things
about being Bisexual
Gay Pan
on your mind to talk
to someone they
trust. That could be
a parent, a best
friend, a teacher or
even me. Remember
there is always
someone who has your
back and you are
NEVER alone.
P.S. I apologize for
some of the odd off
rhymes. That is why
I made it free verse
and not rhyme like I
had planned.

Original of the Doc wearing fist cuffing angels

Baby don't walk away
It's true that the beginning is better than the end
Please hold that smile somewhere in your heart

I will give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it

Somethings you shouldn't have to do alone
Like sleeping, waking and eating
Some people got way too much on their plate

I would give you everything that you need
Except all that you are and will be
Cause you are the first one of your kind

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
And I want nothing else tonight

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
You'll never be alone, no
So sugar come on show us those soles
You've been wearing out when you collect the toll

Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it
And no one accuses you of being shy about it
Everywhere you go I see you screaming about it

And you were born with Docs already on
Smiling right under their eyes
And I see you with your fist ready to fight
Well I'll take the whole of what you got
The whole of what you got, the whole of what you got

Like a birthmark

You are no longer black,
But I am white.
Your lips are no longer thick,
 But mine are thin.
Your language is no longer foreign.
Yet  I am.
What was mine has become Yours.
There is no longer a distinction.
Just as my skin no longer acts as a distinction between You and Me.
I wear You in the lining of my skin,
Like a birth mark.

All I want to do 
Is hold you in my arms and claim you
Mind body and soul
For you are the half 
To my whole

I want you to be my one and only girl
The one I call my own 
the one that has my heart
And the keeper of my soul
The one that watches my love unfurl
All I know is that im feeling light headed
And at peace
And like the part of me that was missing
Is back and feeling whole

All this time we were waiting for each other
All this time I was waiting for you 
We have all these words 
And we write them for each other
My words for you 
And yours for me
And the expression of love 
That has yet to be

Valentine Dreams

Crystal-red-coloured rose pouring sweet scent into my nose;

That’s what you are, and more, my sweet muse.

The other night, vivid dreams of you I had

That made sleep feel like divine love:


You and me in a flowered prairie, with bright clothes.

I saw the bright sunlight jive alive in your black diamond eyes most true

That married your smile, as you told me you were glad

To be with me, smelling flowers and watching doves.


I was so glad! I can still feel how my heartbeat rose

When you told true tales of love as you’re used

To doing, with your hands in mine, your soft palms.

How much more can I thank the Orchestra above?


For this scene is all I’d have wanted, like exquisite prose.

From time to time, I’d look at you from behind (you’d excuse

Me!) and have nothing to add to the perfection you clad

And still do in reality! Perfect curves painted silken mauve!


I’s about to end the distance between our lips when I arose

Most sad to find all that was but a dream.

I’d have gladly gone back to the dream

But reality is worth a thousand dreams; so I left home

To meet the object of my every joyful prose

On this valentine morning so jocose.

(c) Nyonglema

Its as easy as breathing
When it comes to you and me.
With damage done, the pain is easing.
What the future holds, is for us to see.

So much felt in so little time
You had me from the start.
Making this old heart sublime.
You ran through my defense- you tore it apart.

It happened so fast I couldn't react.
Nor could it be stopped
That feelings for you were a matter of fact.
My heart was empty, before these feelings enveloped.

It makes me feel light as though I were floating
But this heart, heavy with emotion
For Its you who I'm a-doting
Keeps me anchored like simple harmonic motion

It's plain to see
That we were made to be
Because we flow like the ocean and sea
This, I decree,
To my sweet baby pea,
Is a guarantee.

Three Little Words

They roam around my head
whisper quietly
begging to come out to play
what would you think if you heard
would you freak out
say it's too soon
what would you do if you knew
these words want life
to be heard
they wish to be screamed
you're so amazing
so beautiful and funny
Handsome and kind
you make me feel wanted
like the future is a gift
would you like my words
would they please you 
make you smile and grin
or would they scare
and cause you to run

Club Courtship

We came to start the partyrock. Got some Grey Goose, Gin, Red Berry Ciroc. We're birds of a feather baby, join the flock. Because we're white boy wasted, rockin like Dethklok. Chillax lil mama, just do the wave. and if you don't know how, you gon learn today. When it comes to having fun baby, we don't play. Sending double shots out like bombs away. HEEEEY!!! we got a lot of alcohol and some super cool brothas who are always down to ball. And you can do whatever baby, you can have it all. I just need to take a peek underneath your camisole. (that's all) Im looking for a ride or die. Don't just kick it with a brotha, be the apple of my eye. They say money is the limit. NAW, limit is the sky. Just take my hand and watch how the time flies.

in my mind

so ways i wish people could see why i write what i do 
see what i see 
or even feel what has been felt 
would you all really judge how i act would you really hurt me like you all have
i know everyone has it rough but does that mean you put me down for handling it the way i do
if anything you push me farther and to my breaking point
you should see the damage you have done 
see the pain you put me thro 
realize that maybe just maybe somethings truly wrong instead of assuming i just want attention
maybe my mind is a bit unstable 
and maybe my heart isn't as strong as it once was but that doesn't make me any different
so why hold all this against me 
why make things worse
why be the reason someone decides to give up
showing you whats going through my heart and whats ripping at my mind is my way of showing you i truly am broken 
you say there's no fixing it but do you really even wanna try
do you really find me worth all the troubles
when you said i love you was it all some big joke 
was it a way of filling some crappy void in your life
if i was to disappear you could care less if i were to die would you even be sad 
knowing that your love was all fake doesn't make it easier to forget it makes it harder to realize my own ignorance
you knew how hurt i was when you first came into my life but you didn't care you found your source of amusement and you didn't care if it killed me 
well in a way i am dead, dead inside 
nothing moves no tears are cried
a beat less heart a shallow soul 
i guess dying really isnt that easy 
but neither is watching someone rip you apart 
its kinda the same in some ways i think dying would be better 
nothing to live for 
no strings holding you to this pathetic thing called life
no words could hurt you
no dreams to be crushed 
but why is it bad always happens to someone so good so pure
why does everything have to go wrong why cant something just go right for once
i know this sounds bad and it may sound like a plea for death but its a way of dealing with fear dealing with mixed emotions
dealing with what i guess wasnt meant to be 
its hard to shake off what people are saying we all know that by now
the love people once held never lasts or it never will be found
emotions are meant to be hidden because no one truly wants to be the burden on someone life
or to feel like they aint worth anything i guess this is a way of crying out for help
a way of saying please save me please just please be the one that makes it ok 
be the one that numbs pain

Rained Filled Clouds

Rain filled clouds are what follow me now ,
No sunshine for me these days and smiles are not aloud.
My sight is blurry now and can't listen to what you say,
It was you who has caused this and why I am feeling this way.
Hold on tightly now It has been the ride of my life ,
But somehow it slipped away like a thief in the night .
How did I not see it so plainly writen on the wall,
Never in a million years did I expect to lose it all.
But here I am standing with my back  turned away,
For I can not face the sadness you brought me this day.
Why has this happened to me and just what will I do,
Shell of a man in a life that was suppose to be spent with you.
It's over now and it's all becuase of you 
I just cant see  theres anything you can do .
 Blinded by the love  for you never a  reason to doubt,
So quickly I learned howI will be going without.
 The warmth of a love you brought to me ,
 Now I will live without what was meant to be .
You were always a a part of the world I've grown to know,
Now that your gone the sadnees in my face will forever show.
These cloudy days bring me nothing but pain,
My life forever will be only me standing in the rain.

New Senses

ghost like on my back
Turn my body liquid
As ripples on a sun drenched lake
Ruled by none 

Stands prone before a closet
Wondering what to wear
Must we really rise?
I was so happy there,
To meet the day. 

None beyond the bed
Nothing forced
Shout joy until we're hoarse
With nothing spoken nothing said
I saw it in your eyes
I heard it in your sighs

Sent You My Way

Your smile is beautiful and shines so bright
It can light up the darkest cold winter's night

Your heart is pure as gold like the sun
spending quality time with you has been so much fun

Life is a journey with it's ups and downs
but when I'm around you it's impossible to frown

You bring me up and calm my weary mind
This was something I was unsure I'd ever find

My heart is getting lighter each and everyday
You've helped me to toss my pain and burdens away

Thank you is all there is really left to say
I'm overjoyed God sent you my way!

Finding You

Lone in dark days he strives
Rising and falling the sun does its routine
In deep remorse a bleeding heart
"Will I ever find true love?"

But long gone are those days
Beautiful smiles polishes every day
Offending cold nights has a remedy warmth in her caress
In her eyes he views paradise
Each hour, minute and second one thing is left at mind
"Thank God I found You"
A falling star both wait and see each night
And a silent wish"I pray thee stays forever"
Well wish not granted I say
Nothing stays forever

This dxxn dam

My mental barriers crumble
as I sink deeper into this drunken delirium.
Thoughts of her rush in
like water through the cracks of a broken dam.
As the stone wall falls
and I am swept away by the flood,
I am sliced by debris and images of her smile.
I become submerged 
and the sounds of her laugh flow into my ears.
Beat to hell and soaked with sorrow, 
I finally wash ashore.

An Empty Heart Full of Hope

I've found someone I can't live without
Pitiful, I've only discovered that after they've left 
Now I can't live. 
I've descended on both knees 
A face flooded with tears, 
Which bled from my broken insides 
To repent, to pray to a God 
In which I did not believe existed 
A God in which I only turned to 
In times of need
A God in which I believed would avail me, even if I wasn't the most 
Faithful of followers 
I believed if I was baptized in his name, he'd perform divine miracles 
Before my eyes, even if I did not practice his teachings 
Am I selfish for doing so? 

Set aside my failure to practice 
My own congenital beliefs, 
My heart still aches 
My body, still empty 
Legs shaking, weak from the lack 
Of his presence 
He is my pillar 
He is my wings 
He arises me above all that is evil 
He makes me feel whole, 
He makes me feel divine, 
He makes me feel like I can climb mountains, 
Slay the devil, himself 
I am a fool for this man 
He is my King 
And I would walk through hellfire to be able to hold him once more...

Beautiful Boyfriend

My beautiful boyfriend,
in your plaid skirts
and black lipstick,
you make my head spin
as you tease me;
with your body,
how the curves are so perfect,
to the clothes you wear,
your black and purple bra,
with the matching purple panties.
You kiss me,
but instead of feeling the
facial hair of a guy,
I feel your soft smooth skin.
You touch my face,
and once again the feel is unexpected,
not callous,
but soft.
Everything about your body is soft,
drawing me into your charm,
something specific to only your body,
and when you begin the change,
the morph into the real outer you,
I'll feel muscle throughout your body,
telling me that I am safe,
and I'll hear your deeper voice,
and know that I would wish for none other.
You are unique,
and somehow I get to call you mine.

Let's dance through thunderstorms
And make love in midnight air.
Let's forgive on rainy days
And kiss with little care.
Let's speak of passion in whispers 
And devotion in screams.
Let's love till we burst at the seams.

remains just out of focus,
an elusive portrait,

etched in the corner of the mind's eye.

sometimes strays into view,
a blurred mirage,
of burnished words cast in indelible dye.

steals fragments of each day,
a welcome thief,
of emotions left in some dusty space.

scatters my poems in the breeze,
an invited spell,
that vanishes into the wind without a trace.

renders me mute and so often blind,
the wild dreamer,
a seeder of impossible thoughts in the mind.

brings the elements of nature to me,
a gentle healer,
she unfolds my thoughts setting them free.

comes and goes as she chooses,
an untamed spirit,
soothing the very place that she bruises.

rouses me in nights of empty slumber,
a murmured breath,
brushing my cheeks with kisses too many to number.

remains to me the enigmatic one,
a burning riddle,
yet she stays with me as each torturous day is done.

my heart knows not why she stays,
my consistent constant,
filling up my nights and consoling my days.

deserves so much more from fate,
the truest soul,
she loves too much and knows not how to hate.

arrives again tonight as I lie awake,
a thoughtful shield,
my coat of armour in a world far too fake.

stays with me and within me stays still,
the true one,
and to dwell deep in my soul is where she always will.

from whose cup I have so greedily drank,
a giver of life,
I have not the words with which to her wholly thank.

knows how desolate a world this can be,
my sustainer of hope,
and of life and of breath is what she will always be.

to the messenger of love

I heard that you have made a lot of dreams come alive,
And you have taken a lot of errands only to bring smiles to a lot of faces,
I heard that with loyalty you have made realities which are better than dreams,
Now hear me loyal messenger,
I have written a small note to someone you know,
read it for her, just like that old fairy-tale love story,
I want you to bring out that lovely after ever part, I hope she will smile,
I want you to use that soft voice of yours that I heard you have used to convince a lot that there`s actually true love out there,
I want her to feel it like cold water running down her bare back to give her that chill, those goose bumps, that feeling, that feel to make her smile for no reason: to give her the urge to find a quiet place where she can whisper to the heavens, whisper my name as if it is the only word her lips are able to utter,
Tell her of the place where silence is the loudest kind of noise, the place of untamed purity where she can find the truth about true love,
Please read it for her slowly so that she can realise how long true love can last,
Read it with that smile of yours that I heard is as bright as the reflections of the morning  sun rays scattered  on the morning dew, so that she knows how revealing true love is,
I heard that sometimes you carry pearls along with you, but please don`t give her, she might lose them , instead  just find that seed of a rose , plant it in her fruitful heart, soon it shall blossom in her every day never to be lost,
Tell her that I am the sea and she is the shore, no matter how hard the wind tries to blow me away I will always try hard to kiss her as long as there`s a molecule of oxygen in my lungs and a drop of blood in my vein; she is the earth and I am the sun, no matter how many times I die every night, I will always rise every morning just to shine for her,
Please try to make her smile, you  will never forget that view, you will notice the doors of the heaven open in the radiant  stars, if you stay focused you might hear the angels serenade,
Show her the letter so that she sees my mark,
I want you to say these words as if I`m there and I`m actually speaking to her; I just wonder what you are thinking every time you look at me and smile; you made me not just a man but the happiest man; I do make mistakes but loving you is not one of them; please don`t let me sing sad love songs ever again,
Please Mr Messenger Sir, don`t forget to tell her that she is the reason I`m smiling right now.

She's still my girl

Seriously Jealous

Inherently over-zealous

A calculation of the wellness-
of present day hellishness

Seriously sophomoric

Traumatically important


A spaceship uninhabitable

Playing a game

Never would have guessed I was a lame...

Being insane

While people are on there way

Driving the plains

With wheel chairs with sprains

Going to work on the veins

With fangs

From behind brains

I withstand the shame

And accept my fame

The morning after

The morning after

Is there any reality ?, or is it just another dream ?
Four AM and I awake from a dream.
That dream tells a story, is that story a truth ?, - 
The truth that came to light, Valentine’s night.

I came to visit with you - your girlfriend is there –
Our words are brief – you want to leave – walk out the door.
Your friend and I remain behind – your choice.
Your girlfriend begins to tell me that you are involved –
In fact  - you have been involved for a long time –
I have been nothing more then a filler for your empty hours.
I awake with this pain in my heart and a knowledge of.
WHAT ???

Monika :

February 15th 2007

Four AM ,pen in hand, words begin to flow.
You are a beautiful Lady, I would love to know.
My heart ache, bleeds for you- I show 
you the tears that run wild, through my veins
until knowledge of, absorbs, and all that remains
are holographic shards, memories ( good or bad ) of the pains
I have had to endure - your words where “ be patient ”,
“ be this, be that, be the other ”.
My soul’s spirit, you did smother.
Implication ?, my dream realized.
but these all seem to be more transient.
and my life’s journey, compromised.
In all honest Monika, - I think – never from you
will come the passion, the closeness, the affection, the love,
a desire for – all these things I desire to give and to live, 
I so wish to know. I feel that I am nothing more  - for you –
then a gift – the gift of Christmas love ( black and red lovers twist ).
A block of wood, carved into – inanimate – lovers entwined in each other, 
a passionate kiss that you see as a musical symbol.
An item to be placed upon a shelf – looked at, but never touched -
symbolically, spiritually or as a mentor to bring out of you – life, alive.
As always Monika, I am conflicted -  living with uncertainty,
Always in doubt about where I stand and what I mean to you .

You will never truly know how I feel

Ever have those days
where everything in the world
just seems to go wrong
where no one is talking
no one will listen 
and no one really cares
you are yelling 
and screaming 
and no one seems 
to even look your way
that happens all to often
you have your "bestfriends"
but they never seem to listen
when you truly need it most
why do they only come to you
when they need something
when they need it
never there for you
sometimes it seems like 
you are just all alone in this world
and everything is wrong

As simple as love

Before I saw you, before
I know you.
I thought love did not exist.
It is complicated and waste.
As soon as you entered my life.
There is nothing in the world, 
As simple as love….

Light At The End

I am a star
A glistening light
At the end of a tunnel
The hope you run to
Rush towards
During the darkest hours
That shining sun 
Guiding you home
Even though you are lost
Wandering aimlessly
On the crossroads of
Loneliness, confusion, and loss
All you have to do is call to me
And I will answer
Like a whisper in the wind
I will hear you
I will hear you my love
Just know that you are never alone honey
I am always with you
Every step of the way
I am skipping down that broken path
Picking up every loose pebble 
Skipping it across the sea of our passion
Hoping it will skid across your feet
Knowing that you will skip it back 
To me
Just this simple gesture lets me know
It lets me know you are there too.
We are both that light.
That light at the end 
Leading us home 
To our star like hearts

The Life of My Love

Her beauty shrouded,  
Her personality hidden,  
In crippling anxiety,  
From which her depression is driven.  
Her true self,  
Only to be shown in flashes of happiness,  
Small moments of laughter.   

All the while,  
She's so hard on herself,  
Her emotions contagious,  
Infecting me the more I see them.     

It's ridiculous, 
Emotions that are not mine, 
Overwhelm me, 
Her sadness drives me crazy, 
And yet she suppresses them, 

What is killing me, 
Multiplied by a hundred, 
Can only be seen, 
After staring into her eyes

She is my Noah’s ark
The flood can’t wash away the memory of us
No bridge can create a gap between us
I love every part of her and cherish it all
Don’t even want God to recreate her afresh
Everything about her I respect and treasure.

I love this girl
I already said it all; she told me hers as well
Our love story has passed the middle page
It all started well and still moving well
All the obstacles on our way; we cruised over
Though the roads are still narrow; we will find our way.

Time shall fade away
We say, hope and see fading away
Everything hoped for shall come to pass
Eyes on calendar like a movie; focused on time
To be forever together; our final destination
To love and cherish each other; history shall forever remember Currie.

How I Feel

There's times I wish I could say things to you
Tell you how you make me feel with all you do
Tell you how your soft lips feel against mine
How your carrassing touch is what my body longed to find
How your smile alone makes me smile so much
How I always long to feel your passionate touch
When you hold me close against your body
I wonder if you feel the same as me
For happiness is what I feel when I'm with you
You make me feel so special with the things you do
I feel so special with all that you say
The pleaseure you give me, I want in no other way
For these feelings I feel do tend to scare me
But this time, I'll let my heart lead me to what is to be

One day

Girl, what more can I say. 
You are amazing in every way. 
Your smile makes me glow, 
Even when I am feeling low. 
The hugs you give, 
is worth this crazy life I live. 
The butterflies, and constant flutters, 
kinda give me the stutters. 
Some day I hope you can be mine again,
 and maybe we can start with a new beginin. 
God gave me you for those times I just cant blink. 
So continue being yourself, 
forever and ever, 
and I believe we can never be severed.

Moved on

I look back,
I see the love you had for me.
Slowly realizing it was an act.
My love was real,
at least it was in the beginning.
Now that I'm moving on,
you can't handle it.
I've made a change.
A change to better myself.
Now you can suffer all you want,
or you can move on like I did.
Lets part our ways 
and act like civilized people. 

What else is there to do?

Whole day in the kitchen
Making my girlfriend favorite dish
I cooking for her tofu
With tomato and salt fish

Tofu is a food can be cook
In so many different ways
She really love it
So I surprising her today

Tofu is made from soybeans
Can absorb flavors of spices and marinades
Is has been a nutritional value
For Asian cuisines for hundred of years

It’s her first time in America
So I want to make it right
With tofu for dinner
Serving under candle lights

I can’t wait to see her smile
When she sees the food I cook
I know she will watch me 
And give me that special look

My girl friend is amazing
To me she means the world
She is more precious than diamond
And the seas full of pearls

I really wish to tell her 
She my heaven on earth
And I mean it from my heart
And I miss her so much it hurt

She told me about tofu
Very popular in western cooking
There is even a tofu festival
Every year they does be celebrating

I have never try tofu
But my girlfriend is very sweet
So what ever she likes 
Bet your dollar I’m going to eat

And I never eat onions
Don’t like how it feels in my mouth
But if she cook it for me
I will eat it all with out a doubt

My girl friend is the best
I’m really in love with her
And she loves tofu
So I will always cook it for her

"Lost Thoughts"
 By: Andrew Stroud

 Laying in the bed,
 And I'm trying to write,
 I've been staring at the paper so long,
 It seems like I'm losing my sight.
 I've always had a gift,
 With the words that I write,
 But my mind's going blank,
 As I sit here tonight.

 I wish I could go on, 
 about your eyes and your smile, 
 but every time I imagine your face, 
 I just sit here for a while.

 I wish I could write,
 About your beauty and grace,
 But every time I put pen to paper,
 My mind begins to race.

 I've never had this problem,
 At ANY point in the past,
 But I'm not complaining by any means,
 Because I'm hoping that this feeling lasts.

 But as my luck would have it,
 You're in a relationship at this time,
 So I'm stuck writing these senseless words,
 And wishing you were mine

Lost in your eyes,
A pleasant suprise.
Vanity at it's best.
Enticing all of the rest.
No one will ever
Do what I do, so clever.
End the day with a kiss.
Rue the days we miss.

My Pretty Damsel

Smart looking eyeballs with black straight lashes,
Teeth enclosed by lips painted with ashes,
Dangling gold ring hangs  perfectly on ear,
Her naïve posture makes her look so dear,
Gorgeously looking with long silky hair 
with a blue blouse on a skirt with slight flare,
Her polished skin is  very endearing,
Gold necklace  and bangles look appealing,
Dimples and spacious teeth make her finer,
Her face glows like a wealthy commoner.

What Is Love

Love is accepting someone
For who they are,
They should shine in your life,
Like a brightened morning star.

Love is being there for someone,
When they are down and upset,
Holding them tightly,
And leaving them with not one regret.

Love is spilling your feelings out,
To one another,
And having compassion
For each other.

Love is having faith,
And having trust,
Because without these two,
The relationship turns into dust.

I'm here to tell everyone,
That if you really love one another,
Then you should be treated,
Like no other.

Baby can you put the time in to listen to what i have to say?
 Can you do me this one solid and ill speak no more?
 No longer will my life be defined by a schedule, no longer will your thoughts ventriloquism my tounge!
 Birds flock but  EAGLES SOAR!
 Five to many wishful chances..... Im done.
Im tired of starring, talking, and listening to these painted walls.
 They constantly answer me back with agony, despair, and pain.
 Im taking back who I am!
 For you amongst my cheeks it shall neva eva again rain.
I gave you the motions of a able clock but you chose to acknowledge me once maybe twice at years glance.
Baby witness my stance....
My bags were packed when i fell for you and now my heart flies 1st class.
Here's a gift to deal with my birth...........
 My old mask!

She doesn't see

You are the urgency in my breath,
the ragged discourse that falls
from my trembling tongue.
Everything I need to say,
is wrapped around you.
The words hang from your skin;
ornaments of understanding that
I have yearned to pluck.
it seems redundant to pull a flower
from your garden, and present it to you
like you didn’t know it is beautiful already.
I just hope you know that I appreciate you.
I see you as you are,
in all your tattered elegance;
Your supple tears, your steady glide.
You’re a ghost in a hall of mirrors,
with roses at your feet;
Wandering like a child.
Quietly hoping to find someone else
in the reflection.

You do funny things to me 
My hand always searching for yours 
My eyes looking for every opportunity 
To have your skin on mine 
But my lips are the worst 
In constant crave of a sweet kiss
That'll lingers till the next
Or a demanding fever of kisses
Causing moans to 
Consume the silent air 

You do funny things to me 
Just the thought of your touch
Leaves me breathless and 
Causes a stampede 
Of heart beats in my chest

I woke up thinking of you, 
And I knew this love is true, 
You remind me of the fresh morning rose, 
That's why I give you this red rose, 

Respect to St. Valentine for this day, 
The day of love, be my date today, 
Breathless and out of this world is what you are, 
Angels of the same feathers is what we are, 

Love contagious, we need quarantine, 
Behind closed doors this valentine, 
Let me take you to cloud nine, 
And get the feeling that you are mine, 

The more of you I get, 
The less I feel regret, 
That red dress fits you perfectly, 
Baby, you look lovely,

Back to the Beginning

Things are different now
We're back at the beginning
Begging people for Starbucks
Hour long parking lot goodbyes
Freezing out in the cold
Sunday dinners at my house
Watching movies on the couch
We're back to this
but it doesn't mean were weaker
our love is stronger
our thoughts are stronger
our conversations are as best friends
We made it once before 
We can do it again

God If You Will It

God if you will it, please give me a girl;
One with an eye that shines like a pearl.

I’ll show her love and respect and prove my potential;
And if you give me her soon this will be evidential.

For so long I have attempted to understand,
This sweetest emotion that turns people to sand.

Please give me a chance to experience you’re great gift,
With which hearts shall be mended and heads it will lift.

God please I beg you, please send her to me –
Sooner more than later, I hope it to be.

To Break A Heart: Where Love Once Flowed

The worst thing you can do is break a heart

Memories shared suddenly turn dull

A head filled with confusion and many thoughts

Nothing seems right or fits in place

Wishing it was all a dream but it lingers over your head

Trust once there now gone no way to be what it once was

The pain seeps in making a person more on guard always keeping their wall up

To restrain from attatching and catching feelings

Nothing could be worse than when you do it

The feel of blame for which you placed on yourself

Never break what holds happiness together

For without it nothing will ever replace the piece that's missing

I am nothing without my better half I need both halves to be complete

My Life So Low I Rise - something in my eyes

My Life So Low I Rise -Something In My Eyes

The storm is clear
It stings all senses
Eyes turn in
They find the will to see
In freedom of the moment
You are the one
My thoughts surround you
Hold you with love forever
Leave you to be you
To the calm day
I settle in a clearing to reflect
Untouched with only you in mind
I see you as a friend
A special find so undefined
My life so low I rise
When you are in my eyes

When I lay in bed
Almost asleep
I feel you on my skin
Like a whisper
I jump and swat at you
Because you could be a spider
But it’s not a spider
It’s the remnants of your touch
I can’t see you
But when I lay in bed
I feel you tickling my skin

Your eyes met mine
Now we're intertwine
Standing face to face
Not wasting time
First we flirt
Unbutton your shirt
Take off your pants
Take off my skirt
About to go raw
Take off my bra
Now we're kissing
We lock jaws
My panties drop
You're on top
Put it in
Don't ever stop
The heat of the moment
Me & you moaning
Doing it all
Don't need condoning
Ready get set
Make me sweat
You are so hard
Get me wet
It's not enough
Get real rough
Be creative
Get the cuffs
It's a reflex
It's not complex
We're naked yes
We're having sex

Just For Now

Can we stop the fighting?
Just for now,
Can we think of other things to say?
Can we try and talk?
Just for now,
Can we say the things we mean?

Will I get to tell you how I feel?
Will you tell me what I need to hear?
Will we move on for all these thing?
Will this fight just get the both of us?

Just for now,
Forget about the broken vase.
Just for now,
Forget about my tears.
Just for now,
Forget about this stupid fight

Just for now,
Say you love me and hold me close.
So that I can see you really care.
Even if its Just for now.

A Carpet of Sprinkled Stars

A Carpet of Sprinkled Stars.


There is solace to be found,
amongst the midnight shadows,


stars embroidered on the carpet of night,

offering comfort,
to my tattered heart,

that seeks only stillness,
as cryptic day retreats.


My wandering mind,
shuffles silently,

massaging the cacophony of today to rest,

while bound wings are unshackled,

and memories, hopes, aspirations,

spread their wings and take flight.


A cascade of nostalgia,
bathes my jangled nerves,

hewn into the creases,
of a lifetime of crumbling hope,

perennially awash with renewed promise,

as I brace for the onslaught,
of another tomorrow.


I feel my thoughts, my hopes, my dreams of love,

kicking the dust,
taking flight,

gliding high,
surfing the clouds,

in a boundless moonlit sky.


Hope defying all constraints,


coasting along the carpet of night,
sprinkled with stars,

breaking all restraints,


of all shackles,
floating through my caged bars.


Memories wash up against my being,

teasing infinite regrets out of their lair,

afloat on a waking dream,

moonbeams streaming through the midnight air.


However lost my yesterdays may seem,

tomorrow offers slivers of hope,

my task is simple,
my wishes the least extravagant,

my desires plain,

wishing to banish all gaudy thoughts,

hoping to cast-off,
this lingering pain.


Cleansed by the soft moonlight,

my back resting gently,

on the carpet of sprinkled stars,

knowing this to be but a dream,

I hold onto each moment of freedom,

while revelling in the soft light,

of a solitary moonbeam.


My reverie is broken,

yet my dream remains true,

of holding you in my arms,

resting on a carpet,
sprinkled with stars,

for my heart no longer resides within me,

my heart has been given,

to my truest love,

my heart now rests with you.


The night slowly begins to fade,

morning mere moments away,

I cling on, cradling you in my thoughts,

you give me the strength,

to endure,

another lonesome day.

When i look at my life and think
I realize that your love was the missing link
You came into my life when my happiness was extinct
I thought there was no way out of the pain so i would excessively drink
I thought there was no other way
I wouldn't turn to anyone for help and i'm not gonna pray
But the second i said soo... And you said hey
My depression receded and the pain went away
And as of today i'm sure that i love you is there anything else i need to say?
Youve given me a purpose and taken my mind out of its disarray
Alyssa you saved me from myself and ill do anything for you to repay
I will love you until i pass away your always on my mind no matter the time of day from when i wake up to when i hit the hay
i know deep in my heart that you do the same
YOUR MY UNIVERSE! sorry i needed to exclaim
My heart flutter when i hear you say my name
{spoken over the phone} 
B-"Baby i just wanted to tell you that to my heart you have the key"
A-"Awe Baby"
B-"I can't live without you like vitamin C"
A-"I love you"
B-"I love you too"
A-"I can't wait to be in your arms so you can hold me"
B-"I can't wait, I wanna stare into your eyes and forever be lost at sea"
A-"Awe B now i know that you love me"
B-"I do to an infinity, soo much it doesn't seem real our love is like a divinity."

B-"in the stars There are no constellations, you are all i see just you in my arms and forever and always with me")
I mean there will be bumps on the road
I just hope that love and loyalty is what i show
Baby we can get through anything i know
Before i met you i was lost but that was a long time ago
Now your my everything my inspiration and my flow
Ive got a lot of love for you to show
Maybe we're going to fast and we need to take it slow
Your not my everything you're my forever and ill never let go
Alyssa i love you i hope you know
Thats the first thing i said,
from that moment you brought back to the living because on the inside i was dead
Now it hasn't even been a month and i can imagine us together for eternity and one day wed
I feel like i can't do anything without you i can't even sleep in my bed
But if you need to let me go to be happy then go cut the thread
Ill try to go on i mean i know that you'll be better off in my head
Still it will hurt like my soul being shred
I hope you can look past my mistakes and love me for who i am you don't even have to tell me just leave it unsaid
Just look straight through me like you can see in infrared
What you'll see is the inside of B
and if you look into my thoughts you'd realize there is no longer a me,
There is just a we
Just us together ill do anything to make you happy
like take you to the sea or at least to heaven that i can guarantee
Alyssa i love you i don't take that lightly
I say that with everything inside of me...
I say that with everything that is B...

You're always in my thoughts,
You're always in my dreams,
And so a life without you would,
Just tear away at the seams,

It's you that keeps me up all night,
The one getting me through the day,
And so it seems to me there,
Is only one thing to say,

I don't know how to say it,
To make it sound true,
So I'll say it how I feel it,
I'm completely in love with you,

run away

Run away run away with me
I am not saying
I got answers to all your questions
am not saying I got
solutions to all your problems

run away with me just please come with me
Its a pretty place out there,
you look your best ,and I promise you'll feel your best too
its a noisy place in here
and it was the worst day to have been through 

but am still gonna see it through
am gonna turn the pages and read
my 'lived happily ever after'
am gonna reach the gates and look back at you
run away with me
run away with me
you are not my only hope, but you are my strongest dope.

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
to the heaven's abode
Run away, away let’s run away........

Veggie Blunt

My babies loved the cats

Through the ages of the naps

In the pages

In the clasp

On the floor

Atop a mat

I pull it out and flip a bat-
let a lover free the band,
so I may rebuttal and unleash some wrath...

Because just one tap on the blacks,
leads a lover to the back

Just like one Cambridge man of the past-
holds a drink
and chats your gas-
shoots your lore back at the boss-
holds your cross with MS DOS

Dances slow,
without a flirt

Dances slow,
and acts the jerk

Wounds the birds,
with sailing lurch

Corrodes the curbs,
with wheeling verse

(...)   Feeling verve-
eats the skirts

While doing peddles,
and bronzing metals

Mutating meadows-
while racing against yellows

Seasons those fellows pollinating in the bellows-
of an R1 while you're having so much fun

Being a beast while you're facing the gun

In the rip of time between going home and burning the buns

Focusing on the fever that got you your lump some

Heartstrings of Our Being

deathless is the wrong road
longing broken hearts travel
a mosaic of silly love songs
lonely memoriam on display

tearful memories ere praised
needful trivial feelings deep
of joyful treasured moments
abandoned dreams assuaged

profound thoughtful promises
of lingering breathless ecstasy
oneness once inspired desire
in hopes ever long forgotten

time’s rarest of gifts opened
fondly remembered no more
true love’s mystery unsolved
labyrinth of the heart inborn

our human spirit’s lifelong 
innermost desire to perform
an orchestral masterpiece on
the heartstrings of our being

He looks wistful and bad
His eyes look tearful and sad.
My girlfriend as left me she does not want my love
Oh, come on now mate good heavens above.

There plenty more fish in the sea you know, I said
 I have a confession you know and  he hung his head.
Well I’m not a priest or a gossip, I said whispering low,
If you want to tell me I’ll keep it secret you know

My girlfriend found out that I had kissed another
She told me I had been seen, and told by her brother.
It’s my girlfriend I love I know that’s a fact,
Can you give me advice how to get her to come back.

Well that is between you and the girlfriend 
I only serve drinks, I cannot pretend.
If you say sorry, will she listen to you?
And if you promise her that, you will be true.

It’s been a few weeks she hasn’t listened before
I have been left standing, knocking on her door.
Well maybe now she knows now that you are contrite
Perhaps things now may turn out alright.

He smiled at me as he lifted his drink,
He sipped on it long, he took time to think.
He placed his empty glass back down on the bar.
His smile returned, as he said, I’ll just go to the car.

He returned minutes later with a big bouquet
And handed it to me without a delay.
Confession they say is good for the soul
If you take me back I will feel once more whole.

I looked at his eyes still red from distress
I thought for a moment, did I need to confess.
No, I’m happy to say I had no new boyfriend
This is the one right one right on to the end.

Girl Friend That Never Ends

   Girl Friend That Never Ends

Of different minds
In change of different 
Frames of mind
She moves the night with balance
Fashions the unknown that she is
With thought she takes me
We touch the night
Opened raw to renewal
Our eyes collect each other in that charm
Reshaping the image to define the image
It always comes back 
A smile
We learn this game early
Don’t play with feelings
Light draws all together 
When all is settled
Relations end but not the friend

If only I could awoken to her wonderful words everyday
Bushes will turn into pretty beautiful dancing flowers
Could I have loved someone else greater than you?
No; I don’t think it’s even ever never going to be possible.
Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder; You are the prettiest girl my eyes behold
What else can I hold more precious than you in this life?
Yes! My life; because you are my life and you my only precious possession
How can I ever take advantage of you? Never! You are always mine to have
Only us can stop us; I don’t see that happening because this love can’t stop now
Anybody hoping to break us up is more delusional than Pharaoh 
It’s like crossing the red sea without Moses and his divine staff
The love of Romeo and Juliet is our stepping stone; where theirs stop ours begin
Love, understanding, compatibility, respect, happiness; the features of our love
I love you so much that I do stay faithful in a room full of whores
You are one of my greatest inspirations; you are the reason I write love poems
Whenever I begin to miss you; I envelope myself in an abyss of poetic writings
I have a beast hidden deep inside me; I will hurt all who ever hurt you
I will not just catch a grenade for you; I will make grenades for you
The love I have for you is going deep towards obsession; I lost without you
You are my endless love; I will always love you.
Without us, No more us...

Te Amo Currie...

Ode To Thee

I cannot say forget me
For that will never fly
like birds without wings
Take my soul from your eyes

I cannot say forgive me
For I am not sure of my sin
I take your fair heart with a fare start and balance it on the wind.

the breath that is left 
inside my heaving chest
 is meant for the exultation of you.

And all that i am in spirit, on land 
is spent in the loving of you.
For love as it is, as rare and as cleansed 
is not a forlorn sensation.

 I cannot say this is the only way,
 but the direction I've paved is without the pace I know.
And the love that exists refuses to relent, like the falling snow.

The Walking moon

The walking moon
Two lovers join hands in the early evening to go walking.
They walked a round the pond that was still.
You could look at the moon start to shine.
As the walk they kiss one time And looked to the sky
The moon was bright and cloud blew by 
And it looked as if the moon had winked.
As they walked along they said to each other 
This is our walking moon as it walks with us

Tonight Alone

 I  sit here tonight alone and  so ashamed,
 A guilty concious and only me to blame .
    This regret I am feeling is so very real,
 I am toremented by the way I made her feel.
    How my heart cries out with anger and discuss,
Thinking  of the damage I have done to her trust.
    Her heart broken and there's tears in her eyes,
How sad I am that I had made her cry.
    It's like being alone in the pouring rain,
Even that doesm't describe the pain.
    Why I would ever do such a thing  it's so odd,
 Never again will this happen  I pray to God .
    My thoughtless acts has hurt you so,
The words I wrote have cut deep I know.
     You can't think I would do this with intent,
All the I love you's  I have alays meant.
     Please my Darling Angel can you forgive me tonight ,
I promise my love I will make it all right .
     My Baby I love you with all of my heart,
From now to forever  I have from the start.
     Yes I am alone this night with only me to blame ,
For the pain I've caused and why I'm so ashamed .

Struck (For Emily)

Love’s coil hath wrapped around,
my heart so very tight.
For somebody I have found,
an angel of the light

Wingless she still flies,
above and beyond the rest.
Her beautify knows no bounds
topping even the very best

Her songlike voice rings
so fervent, sweet, and smooth.
Like a river running,
my mind ever does it soothe

And even in the dark
when no hope is present found,
you hold my spirits high,
like a goddess crowned.

Descended from above,
a path unknown to man 
ahold you took of me,
newly woven is my plan.

So on and on you fly
your careful wings drawn out.
Are you not an angel?
Never less has been my doubt.

Before your grace I cower
lost as if in foreign lands,
I simply hope you guide me
please take me in your hands

and teach me your perfection,
show me your unearthly ways.
Allow me never to lose sight,
for you my Love, I praise

Chapter 27

Dear Ma I don't mean to write a letter and flee,
but it seems I got the Devil in me.
This average Joe tested my manhood and now
I have to teach him a lesson,
bullet wounds to his chest will leave him breathless
"I'll be out in a second."
Slipped on my jeans, tank top, t-shirt and jacket,
and my Nike's, gray gloc, I'm nervous but fact is.
When I see him won't stop from merkin' this bastard,
Send him to Jenah all shot curdled up in casket.
Before I leave I hit the kitchen
for breakfast I'm hungry,
a couple candy bars, drinks, some
wheat breat and turkey.
Some pocket money I hit the door in a hurry
I left a letter on the kitchen table when mom reads it
"Lord Have Mercy!"
I had the stash in my pack jumped in the Lac put my pack
in the back gave Chief dap put the,
match to my black relaxed and chatted casually,
"Chief I think he hussles right up the block, him we gonna have to see."
The Reaper he gonna have to meet,
this son of a b---h caught me in an alley
put a gat to me and took my cash from me.
Swung his fist and tap my cheek see I ain't have to bleed
I hope he with his boys I'll rat a tat his peeps "they all no match for me."
I think the Devil's after me, please calm down
laugh and breath
don't get overheated cause he can blast at you.
"Chief I see him on 22nd, right their with the all white Sean John
and my diamond cut necklace!"

-----------in the middle of the story, I shoot the person and his girlfriend not
knowing who his girlfriend is, and here comes the twist in this poetic story----------

This can't be happening to me, that's what you'd hear
if my eyes talked
I shot my COUSIN down on the sidewalk.
I didn't know that she was cool with this figure,
if I wouldn't have known that I wouldn't have fooled with the trigger.
I placed my cousin's neck in my palm
carressing her arm,
I looked to the left and surely there was her mom.
I'm sorry, I really am......
Devil says, "It doesn't matter cause for life now you're eternally damned
now give me your hand."

one small word
four little letters
can you define it

each breath I take I feel you
each moment you're here
distance doesn't matter

can you feel it too
each breath
each thought
filled with you
you've crossed the distance
caressed my cheek
whispered softly in my ear
Baby you're here

Natural Charm

How eloquent, you move your arms,
It's clear to see your natural charm.

That cause my heart to be alarmed -
And wonder can it be of harm.

Shinning like a golden dollar,
Looking like a new pressed collar.

While saying words to flatter me,
Coming from those smooth-lips, I see.

Seductive, full and luscious too,
I find it quite charming of you.

Though, I not dare to say in words,
Not sure, at all, you're of this world.

With eyes so eager to enchant,
While piercing with a slightly slant.

Able to sink a fleet of ships,
Commanded by those slim, firm hips.

With hair that look and smell so clean,
On such a body  - very lean.

Oh, I must have you in my arms -
So, I  may feel your natural charm.

My Love, Reagan

Your skin glows like the cherry, blossoms you are beautiful as the daisies in the purest hope of spring.
My yearning heart rises to your guitar voice and leaps like a mini jellyfish at the whisper of your name, Reagan.
The evening ascends in on a great bald eagle wing.
I am calmed by your voice that I carry into the twilight of lovebeams and hold next to my heart.
I am filled with hope that I may dry your tears of sadness.
As my heart falls from my chest, it reminds me of your love.
In the hushed, I listen for the last chirp of the spring.
My heated heart leaps to my chest. I wait in the crystal moonlight for your secret house so that we may love as one, heart to heart, in search of the glorious purple and spiritual bed of love.

I will meet you

I will meet you in the park.
I will meet you with a lark.
I will meet you in the dark
when it's cold and stark.
With noah, and the ark
or under a tree with no bark
where upon we will place our mark.

The One You Can Count On

My love is as strong as my heart

My ears are always open to hear your voice

My love is never ending

I will care for you as a person who needs that good caregiving

For I will never judge you for the mistakes you may make or who you are

I will always offer a helping hand whenever its needed

No matter what the situation I will never walk away I'll be here until the end

I won't be the one to ever compare you or make you feel less worthy of what your worth

For I am the one you can always count on through whatever

I admit it

I Admit it, I let my insecurities over power me..
My insecurities have gotten the best of me..
Not only making me wonder why you’re with me..
But making me think there’s someone better who’ll come along..
They’ve taken the best of me..
Got me questioning Where you’ve been..
Who you’re with..
How long;
 & Why?
Got me wanting you home all day,
So I know for sure, its your family you’re with..
& its me you’re talking too..
I admit it, 
My insecurities have really gotten the best of me..
Got me wanting to check your phone,
To make sure I’m the only one getting
Goodmorning texts, & Goodnight bby,
Or even “Hey, I’m on the way home”..
They’ve really gotten the best of me..
& I’d apologize, but I just don’t feel like I can do it enough..
I can’t say it won’t happen again,
Cause I know how my insecurities are..
Knowing me, they’ll probably win..
But I admit it..
I’ve let them get the best of me..

Waiting on That Call

If only I could kiss u as many times as I shed a tear last night.
I wish i were older. I wish people would  realize we are just two lonely kids trying to find a way in this world. I hope when the time comes for us to meet again we don't regret a thing. We will work out perfect we won't have to make anyone happy but ourselves. But for now, goodbye. I hope your life is as fun and amazing as you have made my life these past few months. I hope your successful, and I hope you find someone who loves you as much as I do. I hope you are happy in everything you do. Anyone who is yours is really lucky. Just know that when you need me to keep our promise, to find and fall back in love with each other, I'm where I always said I would be, waiting on that call, and on that day my life will be complete.

When you get so tired of screaming
In the darkness of your mind
When the vultures that surround us
Numb our thoughts and leave us blind
When there's no hope in the distance
No light upon the shore
I'll remember what love feels like
When you held my hand in yours

You weep for me when I cry
You wait patient by the shore
You give me all the time I need
When I need a little more
You're there walking on the water
When I'm drowning in my tears
Now I'm tired of this delusion
You will chase away my fears

So I guess I'll keep on screaming
In the darkness of my mind
For the vultures that surrounded me 
They too now are blind
There's a light there in the distance
A beacon on the shore
I remember what love feels like
Now you hold my hand in yours

I will weep for you when you cry
I'll wait patient on the shore
Give you all the time you need
If you need a little more
I'll walk with you on the water
Stop you drowning in your tears
We will live in loves illusion
I will chase away your fears

Seductive Portents

You wink with grandiose fair
twinkling eyes reflect a sparkle
I hold out my hand
then you say, I'm not that kind of girl

Shortly thereafter, you flash a smile
the radiance flares in my direction
I send an entreating nod
then you say, I'm not that kind of girl

Later, you swivel your shapely hips
the sensual dance sends out vibes
In reply, I pat my beating heart
then you say, I'm not that kind of girl

In due course, you sit down, cross your legs
and fold your arms in a sterile bow
I take a step toward the door
you call out, I'm that kind of girl

Memento Amor

Just the other night, I had a dream about you and I 
Redefined love, whenever I look deep into your eyes 
At this point in time, no words could even describe 
The mesmerizing feeling that has engulfed me deep inside 
In this very dream of mine 

So I will try to explain as best as I can to you 
To capture true emotions in a clear view 
Like a camera do, 
As we pan back to Myers Park High School 

Can you see me standing out in the crowd 
Constantly thinking with a lit cigarette 
Contemplating phrases of what to say 
And how I'm feeling toward such a beautiful brunette 

Having every line rehearsed 
I'd say it to you today 
Then you looked into my eyes 
And they all just slipped away 

In class, sitting right next to you 
You asked me why my tongue's so tied 
I've tried to make sense of all these things I feel inside 
I've been searching for the perfect words to say 
Through the eyes, they've been said a thousand times 
But they will mean more today.

Simple as Dissecting a Frog

Love of the heart;
Love of the mind,
Oceans apart
Never to rhyme

The heart,
While shadowing function
As fast as eruption,
Gives back for consumption

The mind,
So selfish and needy,
Brings Hell to the leaving.
Babes, helpless and teething

Love of the heart;
Or of the mind?
One needn't a chart
The other is blind

Caged Agony

She was caged in his mystery.
Just a glimpse into his soul;
And she saw the anger flow freely.

A father’s blood tainted
And with it came sorrow;
And with it came unspeakable torment.

There was not a person,
That felt the pain,
Its symptoms were distinctively his. 

Whispers like the wind urged him to be happy;
As though condolences could take away the grief;
Each face was featureless, each apology was a fake.

She found him alone and broken.
Within him she saw helplessness;
It was masqueraded by a need to remain strong.

On his shoulders was the World,
The weight of which was becoming too much,
Knees bent from the pressure.

He looked at her and their bereavement was matched;
Both cold from the tears,
Both were searching for their escaped faith.

A child was taken at her word,
Lost amongst the other realms;
She had felt empty.
Her sobs at night were heard by none,
Ridiculed by her traumatizing decision-
He saw her standing outcast.  

Their inward screams had echoed outward;
Only they could hear each other’s cries.
Drawn together in unity, a relationship formed. 

They were never perfect for each other,
But their voids were filled. 
They were very much alike, and yet so different.

They treated one another with disrespect.
It turned their love into rage;
This was followed by resentment.

Hands unclasped as their families pulled them apart,
Tears rolled from her eyes and his desperate struggle ensued;
He vowed to someday get her back.

He found himself anguished once more, as did she. 
For who would hold her now?
How would he fall asleep?

They would move on as all lost lovers do,
But no other love could be the same.
No lesson as great as the one that they had experienced; together.

I Love You Pt2

Love is old,
Love is new,
I just can't stop,
Falling in love with you,
My love for you will always be true,
I'll never get tired of talking to you,
You'll never love yourself half,
As much as I love you,
I love you more than anyone,
I smile when I hear your name,
I think about you all the time,
You came into my life,
And made it a wonderful world to live in,
You made me feel so special with,
All that you say and do,
I love you,

This is an unfinished poem about break-up.

Crossing journeys once again, this time more of an accident, I lay my hand, up, gently on your shoulder. The subtle fact that touch revealed, that my kisses had been healed. This time my love, I knew it was over. This time my love, this time it is over. I held the door open for you, Speak low, my love, for you are through with crying every time you hear the laughter. I strained to hold it open wide, so you passed me with a hint of pride. In such a way that made me seek some shelter. In a way that made me seek some shelter. Summer rain around the pool, you think, oh my, it's beautiful, but you didn't see the sign there, through your raincoat. The one that said no diving no control did hold you back, and you dove right in just as it was raining. Yes, you dove right in just before it was storming.

Squinting to Focus

On a momentary sliver of hope,

in the vacuum of a desolate night,

she appears,
in a blazing instant,

a dream perhaps,

a wishful, comforting apparition,

yet she appears.


Her breath is warm,
her touch light,
her laughter tender.

She takes my hand,

I hold on,
clinging to the vision,

though she is long gone,

I live the lie, in moments here and there,

and as she blows me her farewell kiss,

I live the lie, I smile,

squinting to focus,
to embrace, to hold on,

to a transient moment,

of long lost bliss

For A Special Lady

Her love is virtue,
 Closely knit their hearts mend each others broken pieces,
 Like improper fractions,
 God reserved his souvenir pocket watch to form this love,
 With his alarm set for eternity, 
This love is meant to last forever, 
The slits barricaded in her heart are suddenly healed by his touch,
 Dark heavy residue on his heart is cleansed by her beauty,
 The friends on the outside say this is advancing to expeditiously,
 Only if they could feel the high caliber of the shots fired by Cupid into our souls,
They could gain understanding,
 Like the civilians joined by hands exiting the debris of the trade towers, 
United we stand,
 Together we overcome.

Summer in Anchorage

I'll never have another
like you,
I simmer in the sound
of new age music
and read old love letters
as if they were lyrics. 

I hum, then start to sing
those clichéd poems you wrote for me
behind the celtic violin—
all those forced and obvious rhymes
strike me
in a different way than before.

You really did love me
and I really did light up your life
like the sun, as you said.
But if only you knew
that the sun always sets in the west
like me, when I left for Alaska—
for a lonely 
one room apartment
in Anchorage.

The sun stays for days 
in the summer, here
but I'm still cold.

Every moment

I love the way she holds my hand
and the way she looks at me.
I love it when she compliments me,
but I also love it when she teases me.
I love it when she tickles me
and I love it when she smiles at me
I love the facts;
that she is always worried about me,
that she is always watching me,
and defending me.
I love the fact:
that she makes me feel at home.
she makes me feel calm and relaxed.
I love the way she moves;
so gracefully, so energetically.
I love the way her hair falls,
its like a silky smooth waterfall.
I love the way her eyes sparkle
and the way they shine in the moonlight.
I still continue to fall in love with her
and in everyway

Not so sure

Slowly getting tired and frustrated with the situation that's at hand, 
but yet I'm trying to get a good grip on it and not let it go,
cause when it goes its going to fall and once it falls its going to explode,
the feeling that I'm getting gets stronger by day and weakens me by night,
I try to remind my self this is how it was since the beginning,
I'm not suppose to neither am I allowed to let it affect me like this,
slowly ill start pushing away.
I been hurting,
that empty feeling is coming back slowly the hole that was once patched up is simply 
as much as I try to maintain it shut the pain knocks at it making it crack. 
And it's not a feeling of loneliness because this feeling has just been growing 
waiting to escalate just building one on top of the other forming into this giant tOwer not well 
I'm not losing interest just focus on what's in front of me and what I have 
needing something to pull me back saying look I'm here,
words are slowly just turning into words 
I can feel like I'm hurting not in pain,
just hurting that discomfort in my chest is annoying 
to the point where throwing up seems like the best option
as I hurt I know I'm hurting you to 
trust me its not my intension to. 
I love you 
forgive me or forgive me not but I blame you 
you have me so rapped around your finger you don't even notice how much I love you or 
need you 
when I need you the most your never really there your presences maybe but your mind is far 
I'm sorry I put you threw this the headaches and heartaches cause trust me i feel them too,
but you chose me and I chose you and we chose each other 
knowing that we
us aren't actually perfect 
we each have our problems you have yours and I have mine 
once your problems becomes me and my problem becomes you 
the world we have builded starts to drifted apart 
you on one side me on the other 
yet we still hold hands trying not to let go 
hoping and praying for the best to make it come back together again
I know there's a purpose to why our paths were put in the same direction  to each other
I'm still trying to figure it out
I love you I always have I just need to get reuse to being use to the beginning and how it all 
started and what it use to be,
But yes things are changing 
I'm still trying to hold of grip of the change
But at the end of the day,
It will forever be me and you,
Together again.

If I Could Tell You

If I could tell you, how much I love you..
The stars, the universe, all would be so less to give you!

If I could tell you, I dream about you every second,
And that sweet smile on your face makes me feel like I am in heaven!

If I could tell you, that my heart constantly beats your name..
Without which, my body would be completely lame..

If I could tell you, tears flow down my eyes by the thought of losing you..
And I am ready to quit this world if I am forced to live without you..

If I could tell you, why on earth am I living, 
Then for you, would be the only answer
Which keeps me bright and shining!

If I could tell you, my feelings for you are totally true and pure..
I am madly in love with you, which any medicine can never cure!

If I could tell you, what am I without you, has no answer..
And I promise to take care of you for the entire life, like a lancer!

If I could tell you, that I thoroughly love your idiosyncrasy..
And being with you gives me immense pleasure and I am filled with unbelievable ecstasy!

If I could tell you, you are the whole world to me, me soul, my breath, my life..
And I would be the happiest man in this world if you would ever be my wife!

A Dark Soul

I walk in the halls in my style,
long black dress,
a lacy design,
with combat boos,
black of course,
and let's not forget my
skull necklace and ribbon,
I can't leave home without them.
I love to twirl,
to see the dress slice through the air.
No one really pays attention,
but who does when yoru five foot,
and thought of as a witch.
And still I go about my day,
working hard,
with my few close friends,
waitinf for my time to shine.
Never did I expect that to come
with a guy.

the one who flipped this all,
all this I ever cared for,

You take my hand

I hold my breath

I don't believe what's coming next


Forever and ever

We'll never end

I fell in love with my good friend


Speechless and breathless

This feeling makes me high

Your like a drug that makes my mouth go dry


You kiss my lips

And I can't breath

Please just tell me that you'll never leave


Your like an angel

You fell down from the sky

And now I can't dream of saying goodbye


You take my hand

I hold my breath

I can only dream of what will come next <3

The Crossing

If I dreamt would I,
Walk to sleep?
If the hills could climb,
I’d weep
For the promise
Is not
Set forth
Being first to break up leaves

Unfulfilled questions linger but,
They do die
In remembrance one will cry.
But not always
One will
Speak up
To reconcile
The past.

Too Far Away

The days roll by ever slow
I dream about the day May will come
Hoping to see you every night
Excited to wake up to you
Under the same roof
To see you in the morning
Before I head off to school
A gentle kiss on my lips
As you say goodbye
A tight hug when I come home
Your eyes telling me
 Just how much I was missed
Your eagerness in the kiss I receive
Will tell me just how much you love me
I just can’t wait for that day May comes

Our Love

Even though you are far away
You run on my mind
Memories explode in my head
You are my one and only love
I want you and only you
My heart races every time I see you
And every time I hear your voice
My heart skips and does little flips
With every kiss and every hug
I love you more and more
I can’t seem to get enough
Of this love that’s a fairy tale
You are my drug, my addiction
I need you by my side
I could live without you
Yet I feel I couldn’t
I believe I wouldn’t even try to
With every tick of the clock
My heart misses you even more
Our distance will not hurt us
It will only help us to realize
Just how much we need each other

This growing casym
how it does spread
no matter the ties that bind
what once was, may never be
i want to endure
there is little cooperation
occassional bisecting parallels
i want brilliance in my life
not a cold, dank room lit by another
i want a thunderous song 
with lyrics full of color
not a sonorous melody
that meanders with the wind
i want to lead this parade of life
to wave at the crowd
i make this journey

One month

The sparkle in your eyes
And the beauty in your heart.
From the first day I seen you,
I knew I needed you from the start.
You tested me in ways I never knew I could pass.
But I did boo, I got you at last.
Today makes one month,
And I have loved every minute.
From the hugs and kisses,
To the late night phone calls.
To your cute texts and the touch of your skin. 
To the world we are just two people,
But to me you are the world.

Dirty Kiss

 The door slammed behind me and she grabbed me
Pulled me into her kiss
Hard and fast
Our lips met and so did our noses

I remember thinking
Under the flash of pain
Behind the sudden wash of tears
Within the gush of blood down my lips and chin

"This is sooo not how it looks in the movies" 

We kissed anyway.

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time, I loved a princess
She had no kingdom to speak of
But even a moment of her time was priceless
Nor did she have Royal Blood
For her blood was that of a commoner

Once upon a time, I loved a princess
She was fair as can be, just look in her eyes to see
The depth of her soul, for she truly knew pain
But the scars on her heart, I hoped to wash away with the rain
She was not perfect by any means, but she was a princess to me

Once upon a time, I loved a princess
Or at least that’s what she was to me
Her wish was my command, for her love I would withstand
The rage of a thousand nations if just for a moment I could see
That love that twinkled in her eye whenever her eyes gazed
Upon a commoner like me; For I am nothing compared to my princess

Once upon a time, I killed a princess
I did not harm her body, t’was her soul that I killed
For when I left her crying, wounded in the street
I could not let our bodies touch, nor our faces meet
I left my princess bleeding in the street

Her heart was bleeding, her voice was pleading
“Please! No!” she screamed to the lonely moon
And then and there I knew that I was no knight in shining armor
I was the devil in disguise and I destroyed my princess’ kingdom
With my words full of lies

Once upon a time, I loved a princess
And once upon a time, she loved me…

*Dedicated to a time when I loved a girl who loved me more than life itself. I left her and she was never, and I feel never will be, the same again. It sill hurts me to this day to think that I caused her so much pain. 

P.S. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Your flight home

I went home alone
After you left,
Cloaked in my own darkness
While Clogging memories
Of your smile
Accompanied me on
The night time drive
Tinged with lonely sadness.
Later I found your hair
In the bathroom,
Beautiful strands of
Discarded gold
Which I framed
Along with your tears
That had bejewelled 
My heart.

Lost Love

A life without you
Is like a life without sun
I can’t survive without you
You are my love 
And my life
Whatever happens to you
Happens to me to
We are one 
And I could never imagine life without you
So as these years go by 
I have to ponder
Will this love last?
Or will it fail as many have before us?

Hurts Lair

Alas! Another day has come
I can hear the gears of torture whine
For yet again the time has come
For my strength to be ripped from my spine
I must go on, I have to be strong
But I hear my legs crying
They curse my will to move on
I can feel them slowly dying
Out from the shadows I see its walls
Her mammoth lair appears
I must tread into those gloomy halls
And confront my greatest fears
TICK..TOCK ..Shouts my trusty watch
But there I sit...ever so silently
This anguished heart I must watch
As I feel her thoughts studying me
Out in the open I need to go
For my body needs nourishment
But soon I know, her face will show
And demolish my emotional monument
Her presence makes me tremble!
But to watch my foundation disassemble...
Her steady gaze is a poisoned arrow
That resides in my swollen heart
A gaze that used to be so mellow
Has betrayed my heart of hearts....
This is my fault I must admit
I never knew she didn't know
Her feelings for me were not legit
She never knew I loved her so...
It's time to go home again
I must get over my sorrow
I will heal my wounds again
For its back to work tomorrow....

Her beauty is simple but strong
Her legs are shapely and long
Her eyes seduce within a wink
Her smile intoxicates like drink

Grace is her name her vision
To be her love I am driven
I need much more then sweet kisses
She teases my dreams into wishes

Grace for your attention I must persist
Grace in the moonlight so statuesque
Grace when we stroll hand and hand
Grace by your beauty I am damn

Her heart is true and made of gold
But gold is solid and gold is cold
My longings dwindle and are replaced
By Faith her sister,  such a lovely face.

Your eyes across my soul

Its time to face the truth croons the singer on the radio and I die
Curling up in to a ball pulling my hair out and screaming
Because I know this to be true
I will be there again when it snows and snows
I will be there again if you call
I will be there again if you whisper out my name
In the eyes of my memories you're beautiful
In the breaths I stole with my camera you're beautiful
Across these lips that will never touch yours again you're beautiful

I thought I heard you call out my name tonight 
But I knew you weren't home
In the cold under the city lights beneath the blanket of night
What if it was you I think now as I linger
But you weren't home
And still... 
I wish I had turned around
To see you standing there in the gently falling snow
But I thought you weren't home

I have lost sleep tonight and I may never sleep again I fear
Because I don't know what to do
I don't know where to turn, where to go
So that I may, I might, 
Dream of your smile and your eyes across my soul
You're so beautiful, 

I let slip this pen from my fingers
Staining these last few lines I know it to be true
And I don't really care about that now
I will never be with you I know, I know... 

And this is the truth I must learn to face

Needless of your seduction I have fallen; 
Deep in the ocean of love; I awaken.
Do you know this feeling you have arisen?
Coming forth like a caterpillar from its cocoon

Such, is my sweet sorrow story, 
Told even by the cowry, 
Engendered by love’s mystery; 
Played to the gallery of misery

How I wished this was not a phantom
Already, it would have blossom
Never to be obstructed by the storm
Yes! I would cherish it to doom

slow down

Baby I could speed up but I’d rather slow down
Please you in ways other men wouldn’t know how
Have you screaming so loud
That the neighbours will know my name
They won’t be able to look at you the same
But I’ll hold your hand when we go out
Want everyone to know you’re mine
And you aren’t going anywhere
Love when it’s just us two spending time
And you love it when I kiss your neck & pull your hair
Oops I probably shouldn’t have said that
Got lost a minute forgetting where my heads at
Take you to wherever the nearest bed at
Not leave till the early morning
You know I will keep to that word
You don’t need a warning
You know I’ll show you, your worth
Make sure you never run to another man
Satisfy all of your needs
Know you’re safe giving me your hands
Give you all of me
Don’t want to be like Beyoncé & Jay-Z
Just want it to be us
I’m your man, you’re my lady
Nothing will break the trust
Don’t want the world at my feet
Just want you by my side
Baby promise you’ll never leave
I’ll wipe the tears from your eyes
Never bring you hurt
Just want to make you happy
If you’re lost I’ll go on the longest search
And bring you back to me
Baby weather we slow down or go quick
I know you’ll be worth the risk

Love, Mania, and Verse

Love, Mania, and Verse

The pendulum swings,
while the mania in my head,
strips me bare and yanks me,
into the cauldron of love.

Once again,
never divining the tea leaves,
knowing, always knowing,
the gnawing knots of unease,
that curl into a fist.

My isolation is a shield,
a suit of armour,
tightly clad around my self,
once worn,
then discarded,
taking its place,
on my barren shelf.

Love, mania and verse,
coalesce, beseeching me,
with timeous forewarning,
not to tread into the quicksand,
that slippery bog of promise.

in times past,
in moments present,
tis' that very promise,
that I cling to.

At times I lose,
myself in the crowd,
rebelling in the solitude found there,

at times I claw,
my way back to the now,
aching for the pain that stings,

the buried voice that sings,
dirges to forgotten emotions,

scribbled verse that flings,
the toys out of my cot,

while I wait,
for the mania to stop,

always knowing,
that it shall be,

merely a matter of time,
before the other shoe,
must, as always,

Delightful Light

a beloved’s daydream
bathed in beauty’s
heavenly light

as delicate as 
a gentle zephyr’s 
lovesome flight,

a spellbinding joy
of sunshine’s
pure delight

as sparkling as
a romantic love
at first sight,

a special bedtime 
story’s wishful 
good night,

as peaceful as
a playful ray 
of moonlight

a playful heart
aglow in melodic 
harmony’s starlight

as effervescent as
infinitely dazzling

The words that cling to our hearts unspoken
The ones that betray and leave you broken
You hold them close, but then you find
That the words you want are undefined
It's hard to find something that makes you feel
That life matters, that what you have might not be real
I used to have exactly that, but i threw it all away
I was so happy with what i had, then i led myself astray
I wanted it so much, i just needed the right word
One to describe that i'm sorry, that everything became blurred
Words can describe so much, but actions mean more
That's the truth and it's something you just cant ignore
There's so much to say still, there's so much to do
And you know that what is getting done is all for you
So you can be happy again and we can finally live
The life we always talked of, the one i always wanted to give
It's not too late, so just take your time
We can be together forever, like partners in crime
Now i don't know what to think anymore, i just want that last chance
The one that we talked of, may i have this last dance?
There are so many words that cling to our hearts unspoken
I don't want them to betray us, i don't want them to leave us broken

In the still of the night

In the still of the night
I hear you whisper
Your voice flies on the air
Coming to me at twilight
The still made ever crisper
By your words so fair

From a world away my love calls
And I hear the gentle sound
As it lightly caresses my ear
To her knees she falls
Praying her love is found
My voice will calm her fear

She feels my hands in her hair
Tugging the strings of passion
Tilting her head to me
Catching her breath in my stare
Master of her vision
Letting her soul be free

A million miles apart
Within my words she is never lost
To her existence I spake
The lord of her heart
My vow to her is cast
Her trust to never break

To our own universe we go
Forsaking all others we go
This one thing I know
My love she will know
This precious gift to her I send
To love her forever and to the end

The day we meet and make our paradise
I'll take her hand and make her mine
Around her neck I place the strand
Together beyond the rest of our lives
Through neverending space and time
Collared by my loving hand

My love is powerful and deep
My hold is firm and hard
Driving forward our existence
Her heart in mine I keep
Never shall it be marred
Giving in to my insistence

Oceans between us
Hearts together as one
Souls once united
Oceans of love
Hearts ablaze
Souls entwined

In the still of the night
It's my name she whispers
At it's sound my soul does flare
Dancing in the firelight
Her image in the cinders
The flames hold my stare

In the still of the night
She comes to me

Imagination paints a picture far better  
than the hand,
Green is the lush canvas spread upon
paradise land,
Soft the breeze that stills the night
soft morn's light,
Beauty graces the hours in the long day
hope takes flight,
Nature burst forth with brilliant hues
clouds gently dance,
Imagination sends her hot love to my
love to enhance

to be finished if she marries me..
R.J. Lindley . 02-14-1979

note:  Unfinished from back then. She left me three days
 later because her parents demanded that she do so. 
A year later she married a very rich man that 
could give her what she was so used to. 
I survived but was pretty broken up about it for 
over a year.
Live and learn.

This Is Where I Am

You met 
me lost up the road
car park shadowed
vague memories of last 
time before park 
fear of threats

deserted wet gloomy courts

phone rings

where are you?

I tell you I passed the stadium shadow twice roundabout round 
and round I go
down and down nightmare

you’d be there in 2 minutes
barker stone voices through dark people going to their night time




you’ll be there
you won’t be ages 
from shadow 

shoulder shining
kiss with tongues hold 
where I fit you 

take me home

Lover's Embrace

I see the gently sloping curve of your hip,
your skin velvety,
your face peaceful, relaxed.
Those verdant eyes, hidden.
Rhythmic breathing tells me of your slumber.
I slide into the bed next to you
and you turn into my arms
and we lie in a lover's embrace

Common Ground

It'll take some time now,
But we'll find our common ground.
I love you most without a doubt,
I'd be a fool to live without.
Time and time and time again,
It's time that it'll take to be your friend.
I'm willing if you are, to find a new start,
Just give me time to mend my heart.

Day to Day

Ive been through heartbreak 
I know time will heal
The difference is that 
its not sadness I feel
Its a feeling in my gut
it lays deep down inside
That tells me I need you
I can't be denied

I love you so much
and I hate you as well
You make me euphoric 
you put me through hell

I awaken everyday
feeling worse than before
I feel so wrong
down to my core

I punch random objects
I drink the pain away
The worst part of life
is starting a new day

Time isn’t helping
days crawl past
I sit and wonder
if our love will ever last

I pace like a mad man
banging my head
screaming obscenities
all i see is red

In the extreme corner of Michigan lake,

When the inhabiting birds flying over our heads singing,

Picking the smile of children offered free;
I whispered in your ears like seashells-

A secret,

Reveal it to anyone,not,

Even in your dreams!

Fear is what eat me up,
When i approach you girl.
Like a soldier i walk,
Fearlessly smiling at you.
But what am i to say?
That i love you?
I might sound foolish.
Your every word i like,
Your voice i cant compare,
Girl you are cute.

Your face is ever glittering,
Your eyes full of joy.
When i look at you in the eyes,
Girl am shy to say how i feel.
Your walking style unique it is,
You walk and leave me staring at you.
How you wear,
Make me wonder,
Where girl you come from.

Your body shape,
Girl you are beautiful,
Everytime i watch you from my bedroom window,
Your beauty so amazing.
How you smile at me,
Am left wondering,
Where am to start.
When i start a conversation, 
I wonder what to tell you girl,
To relieve my heart from this pain.

Too long i have waited,
That one day you will invite me
in your heart,
But everytime no word i get.
Let it sound foolish..
But it won't eat me up any longer,
I know am not asking for much
Just a space in your heart,
Allow me walk by your side,
To smile as you smile
And to have you as my love.

Savage lies, mercilessly spoken,

battering emotions, a heart exposed, nakedly open,

companionship was all that was sought,

not blue-chip bonds, hastily sold and bought.

The bonds I sought were simple,

peaceful nights, scribbling verse in unseen black,

delicately caressing words of love, my fingers tracing poems, over the contours of your soft back.

It saddens me to say, my thoughts were dreamed in vain,

and it grieves me see, the ashes of our love,

floating down the streets we walked,

scattered in the rivulets of this night’s pouring rain.

Alone I scribble this paltry verse,

the darkest of nights, in the midst of howling storms,

and though I may heal some day,

the memory of the ashes of our love,

floating down the streets we once walked,

shall remain buried deep,

until my dying day

all the silly conversations;
they're cherished.

and the way you make

you waited for,

She stuck into me like a shard
 “Pick me up,” she said
I liked the way she beckoned
She liked the way I bled

She had the look that ruined gods
With dark eyes and a temptress air 
She set fire to my virgin Eden
And I burned within in her stare 

And so I took her by the hand—

She was broken as clean as a bone
She said “I am empty, forsaken”
“I am tired of being alone”

My enigma,
My sexual effigy 
Jarred from a distant dream 
My inebriation, 
Forbidden love, 
My incomparable supreme 

I watched her wipe the lipstick onto her forearm
And let her draw me into herself
All night I held her, sleepless 
As the numbness began to quell 

For the first time I felt something quiver
And burst like an unfettered dream

When she woke, we lie there 

Then it was time for me to leave

I want to feel,

Nothing but our bodies,

intertwined close together.
I want to feel the love,
the lust,
all our built up
feelings escaping at once.
I want to hold you,
to be held by you.
I want to feel you

your body pressed close
against mine.
I want to feel you,

My Gentlewoman

She wears my plaid
Looks good in flannel
Puts up with my every fad
We fight over the channel
She drinks my coffee, its sludge
Pokes my belly to tease
And eats my emergency fudge
Forgets to say please
All is forgotten when I see her grin
Hell, they might call it a sin
I love to watch her go, when my lady departs
But we complete each other, our lady hearts

Righteously Led

Study the rhythms of our beating hearts To expel this delusional fear of rejection To know you and I will never be apart To reserve part of me for your selection The love I am capable of ~ none will know Unless a part of you wants to show That the creation of women together with the same Is much, much, much, more than just a name Get lost in your eyes and find a way through Find the deepest, darkest secrets inside of you To explode together in emotional bliss Knowing every single time I need it ~ you lean in for a kiss Sharing all of everything I can give to you And show you that what I say is simply true Knowingly spoken ~ I release you into my veins And pump the essence of you through my body ~ expelling all this shame This roller-coaster journey with you I will take The memories that you and I will re-create The times in the sheets, and playing in bed Poisons my mind, body, and soul and to you ~ righteously it led

May 22 1994


On this day an angel was born
An angel that would leave my heart torn
Torn into pieces because of fake beliefs of 
Eternal love and never ending happiness 
Damn I can't believe this break up happenin 
I really do want her back again 
Can't let our love blow away in the wind
Who said everyday would be a win
No matter what you were always my best friend 
I never wanted our relationship to end 
I need luck to try to win her over
Not luck like Andrew but the kind from a four leaf clover
You were like my gun in a holster 
Calm but when it came to it for me she'd blow for 
Now our loves burnt bread in the toaster 
Am I the only one who thought angels were supposed to 
Bring happiness and protection for a demon
Maybe your mother should have swallowed that shot of semen
That came steaming out of your ugly fathers penis
Maybe then my heart wouldn't be bleeding
And in pain like a toddler teething
There's gotta be a reason
Why your attitude your mood changes like the seasons 
I get it now....your half angel half demon....

Broken and Lied Too

Threw heart ache after heart ache
Endless hours of tears rolling off my check
After Finding out the two years of our relationship was a lie.
I can't love you back anymore
I'm tired of pretending that I am happy when I'm not
I gave you everything 
Only thing you gave me was broken heart
Now I'm done
I can't pretend anymore 
Please understand this is for the best
Let me take what's left of my broken heart and go.

you mean more than the world

My love for you is like an earthquake
It makes my whole world shake
It makes building crumble, 
Oceans spin with the blunder

Sadly you don’t feel the same
You and I should be considered fate
Even if it means you and I are a tad late
I love you, more than you ever knew
A kiss from you is way past due

For A Lady Friend

The destiny pulled me 
Away from our matrimony;
Luckily our friendship survived.
Thousand girls passed by my life;
Left thousand dreams flourished
In the garden of melancholy
To craft the broken-heart poetry:
My love’s like a fruit tree.

Your shape, smile and friendly eyes
Revived on my thousand wallpapers;
Induced my ink as the endless river;
Sweet words floated on the rainy days
And lemony lyrics on the dried.   
Our love story let my pen cried
In the torrent of days and nights.

On my fluky walkway
The beloved flowers never decay.
The perfume poetry spread along,
You helped me to put the pretty songs,
From a humble honest heart, 
To delight world’s feast days.   
Your sweet voice ever stays
In my artistry bouquet.

Like roses encircled by bees
Ever though your face fixed on me.
Through the nights, I admire the sky,
The flashing stars of your smiles,
Encouraged my dreaming  
On the long road of the literacy,
You shared a favor authority
By letting your mind escorted me.

Our hearts united gratefully,
Forever our soul remains friendly.   
You’re the lady, who changed my life,
The profound power of my mind.
Refilled my pen with your soul-ink,
The multicolored ink for artistry: 
The outpouring in my poetry.

Zones of Eros

Oh, these areas you possess.
I love to stimulate them.
To kiss them, to caress them,
to taste them.
Inside the wrist, skin so tender.
Behind the knees,
you pulse, I feel quicken.
Your nipples, standing tall,
begging my affection.
My hot breath on your neck,
shivers down your spine.
Your hands, so soft,
ones that give such care,
of comfort and love.
Your lips, tender and moist,
I take with my own,
to possess you,
a need in me too.
Each one bringing you 
to the next level of ecstasy.

Dedication to Jazmine

I'm loosing hope
my heart is giving in
my mind is dying off
and its only been 2 days
since seeing you.
im going crazy
my heart hurts
without you
my soul
is in the fiery depths of hell.
it burns in 3rd degree
as I yearn to see you again
it destroys me when we can not contact
it kills me not hearing
your angelic voice
it deprives me
not feeling your love
not having your protection
I feel alone
so alone

Let Me Love You

Let me love you
When my mum is unaware,
When she trust my lust,
And my old man never expected.

Let me love you 
When I open and close my eyes,
On the moon or the earth
And when my brain became wider in your world.

Let me love you
Not the way Romeo and Juliet 
Died in vain without gain,
Love to enjoy you today and tomorrow.

Let me love you
When my tongue says not, but your name.
When my heart beats for you,
And call your entire soul my own.

Let me love you 
When the dry air of a winter blows,
When the sunshine of the summer shines,
And let me give you the spring red roses!

Let me love you
When I weep,
When I smile,
And let me love you when I’m in any mood.

Let me love you 
And call you sweetheart for a reason,
Because you give pleasure to my heart,
You are so demanded as peace in life today.

Let me love you
When the hatred broke into ashes
And the speedy peaceful wind of the winter
Takes it away from our territory!

A scoop of flavored aroma

Loving you is like waking up in a dream,
Like  traveling across the universe on a sunbeam.
Loving you is a scoop of flavored aroma,
Putting me sleep during night's of insomnia.

Your love is a Blessing from above,
A blessing that filled an empty heart with love.
You exist in this time and world to join me,
To walk across time as one joyfully.

Time can take my strength and youth,
can take my eyesight and every tooth.
What it can't take is my love for you,
Which holds me strong when my world is blue.

The Word Love

The word “love” can be meant in so many ways
It can be said at any minute of any day
It can be meant towards a material thing
Like the gift of a necklace or a ring
It can be meant of how one feels towards another
Such as a mother, father, sibling, child, or lover
But as I sit here and think of you
I think the word “love” cannot express my feelings so true
I say it to you so many times
I write it down in so many poetic rhymes
But my feelings surpass any word I can say to you
They cannot even be expressed with anything I do
So please know when the words “I love you” come to you from me
It is meant so much deeper than those simple words seem to mean

Lisa, Lisa, like the sushi roll
tasty and sweet.
Tall like the tower of pisa,
She is my Mona Lisa.

This was Just a Rant

I'm sick of seeing
the ****tiest people I know
in happy, loving relationships. 
I'm sick of seeing
couples hug
and kiss
and cuddle.
I'm sick of seeing pictures
of everyone's boyfriend and girl
every time I get online. 
I'm sick of hearing about
how perfect
everyone's relationships are. 
I'm sick of hearing about
how in love
everyone is. 

I'm sick of being
and alone.
I'm sick of never having anyone
to hug
or kiss
or cuddle. 
I'm sick 
of not having anyone
to take cute pictures with. 
I'm sick of thinking
about how lonely
I always am. 
I'm sick of thinking
about how ****ed up
my mind has become. 

I'm sick of craving attention
and physicality. 
I'm sick
of being left by myself
to sit in sorrow
while I watch
someone else.

 As you sleep, I dream

As you see, I feel

As you breath, I live

As you smile, I cry

As you are, I am

You, in my arms,
tranquil rest,
I listen to you slumber.
You, safe in my embrace, forever.
No grief shall touch you
while I breathe.
You, I will always shelter,
my shoulder is yours, forever more,
upon me do rest.
Together, we will face this world
a pair, as one.

A new Aquaintance

This friend I have aquired
commonalities abound between us.
Our wishes correlate
like a long lost pal
separated by chance
reunited by fate.
Our friendship grows daily
jokes and quips thrown about
together, we jest.
Slowly, we grow comfortable
in our desire.
It drives us forward
propelling us together,
hopefully, down the same path.

Thoughts of her rob my slumber.
She burglarizes my rest.
She pervades my life,
into my dreams.
She is the locomotive
derailing my train of thought.
I have no reign over myself.
My infatuation grows daily.
In this I lose control
as I watch my heart wander.
