Kiss The Sky


Dropped some purple haze with Jimi -
we created castles out of polished beach glass,
then we fused with acid-laced clouds.

Kissed the sky
so high.

Jimi started bawling,
his torrential tears washed us down and out to sea.
Each drop of water became a pixel,
until reality morphed into a painting of musical notes,
and the music transformed back into a fresh reality.
There wasn't any more doubt
whether we were experienced now -- and how.

The tide washed us up into heavy crosstown traffic.
Jimi wandered down Voodoo Blvd,
I became a hoodoo child
gobbling up sugar cubes filled with liquid sunshine.
I watched the yellow cabs race by,
watched the heavy metal race by.

Jimi was jacked into electric ladyland,
his radiant smile, hiding pain
and covering other people's lies.
Even so, Jimi believed in his message,
sincerity set him apart from the crowd,
which is why he made sure
not to let his smile, wither and die.
But the more that his manager pushed,
the more that Jimi's pusher came....

Jimi was hypnotized by the flashbulbs of fame,
attempting to out-run a childhood filled with shame -
blowing out speaker stacks
with that twisted pedal magic,
spellbinding incantations
vibrated from his guitar,
making love to the sky with rainbow hues
of acid rock-induced rolling blues.

Jimi simply wanted someone to love him back
even half as much as he could,
for Jimi's love was honest and hard,
with wings waiting to be released
into a world not yet ready to be fully free.

Kissed the sky.

Kiss the sky
so high.

Her Swan Song

"You are a lovely singing bird outside my window. I open my window and you become a flower scent and a breeze that passes through my hair." ... Spun from the dark clouds from the night before I sweep away those cobwebs in the light of dawn. And I ask, 'When will it be spring again?' As a displeased Winter snows o'er the hedges And flake after flake they fall upon... Wish I could unpin my heedless heart. It has no wisdom to feign, A daughter of the wind in gloam, as those windflowers That sail in the breeze and they never be home. A spirit withered and leafless, draped by the icy winds, And dried up tears underneath the boughs, Those eyes once shimmered with flaming tints of gold... The hidden woodlands whispered to the south wind Of a breath ephemeral that pierced the heart of stone. As he skimmed o'er the roughen'd edges Of autumnal lands never been trod upon, A new life is born from the silken disarray, And he brushed away the wrinkles unaware That she was singing to him her swan song. ..

Sometimes Heartbroken

Sometimes Heartbroken

I know I still love you
After all that you’ve done
You tell me different lies
Than you told everyone

I try to deny
The pain that’s built up inside
Though, even when I smile
My heart starts to divide

Sometimes heartbroken
Now that I finally realize
The words that you’ve spoken
Were really all lies

Sometimes Heartbroken
I’m dying inside
And I can’t seem to get over you
No matter how hard I tried

Now every time I see you
I feel emptiness in my heart
But then I remember
How you deceived me from the start

Even then I had a feeling
That this may never last
But I can’t help thinking
About throwing away that past

Sometimes heartbroken
Now that I finally realize
The words that you’ve spoken
Were really all lies

Sometimes Heartbroken
I’m dying inside
And I can’t seem to get over you
No matter how hard I tried

So tell me why
You had to lie to me
You may have tricked everyone around you
But you were the one who just couldn’t see

Sometimes heartbroken
Now that I finally realize
The words that you’ve spoken
Were really all lies

Sometimes Heartbroken
I’m dying inside
And I can’t seem to get over you
No matter how hard I tried

Sometimes Heartbroken
As I look back on this
I find that I’m no longer broken
As these words pass my lips

Sometimes Heartbroken

Moments In Time

The sweetest sounds of burning trees
A gentle stroking in the breeze
The calm has lasted past the storm
Cloudy visions, Satan’s roar
Too many sights have passed my way
A time found only in the haze
The softest screams are running bare
My aching bones creak as I stare

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark

The battle’s started at the end
No one is coming to repent
The sinners grab their wine from prey
No judgment calling here to stay
The sport is reckless to be told
The one is laughing at his souls
It falters nowhere to be sure
The power grows forevermore
Like a spirit in the wind
I have no say in where you’ve been 
But cross the line to come to me
And pay the price for ecstasy

You walk a distance towards me
The fall’s eternal, can’t you see?
I’m a memory in your heart
I whisper to you in the dark.

Jungle Love

Your sweet nectar
wraps around my senses
like jungle vines
steady drums beating
Your heart near mine

Your strong hands
hold me suspended
by my waist
Just enough pain and strength
against my supple skin
For my taste

The musk of your
sculpted body and the forest
has me going wild
But yet, the tender way you
protect me, reminds me of
Being a child

A safe familiarity
with a strain of animalistic
seduction
Your invisible hold over me
leaves me arrow poisoned
Unable to function

My long dark hair wraps you
with smells of coconut and ocean Sun
your locks full of mud and enemies
Blood
together, my warrior
We make One

I'm Your King

A burst of white light gamma rays, overbearing a flash of brilliance burns through to my soul everything is like hell the world starts to melt in the blink of an eye just the cold blackness of night I don't care if I am not again what I once was, for at this moment I am greater now than ever before I took the path between teetering, tight roping walking right up to my right divined in my unholy state I thought I told you I am your king still you sit there, hesitating I know you hate me what does that mean? I hate just about everything still I'm chosen I did not wish before now bow down to me refuse me no more for I shall always be your demon until you accept me as your King. I don't even know you though you say we used to be best of friends, you and me the day you ditched me I remember now exactly how it played out back when we were just tiny things even back then I still was King you thought me stupid just a ruse I would laugh inside, you see? not one of you single, mean people ever even knew me in a world, mostly seen to me that is why only I can be your true King and bring forth a new source of light everlasting. As two worlds collide slowly aligned one wrapped in shadows one bathed in white evils swirling in the clouds above I'll always be the king you love to hate or despise as in your blood I thought I told you, I am the one I am the way, the way out shall be shown breathe in my spirit as it carries you away breathe in my faith it shall carry your empty space and deposit you gently on a cloud just enough higher than you've ever dreamed of for I am king now, and your in my hell your in my imagination, I'll just never tell you'll feel as though dreaming, you'll feel now if you try and see you were always found the most shared in the light cast upon me the last bright star in heaven. Denounce my name, if you may One year later, still not afraid A black sheep, a darkened spade That's just life, I'm not right I'm in the wrong, follow along Like a piper, I'll pitch a song Mesmerized, the weak wills sing I thought he told you, he's still our king.

Rebirth

Ignite,
The missing light,
Forget,
What's behind.
Just believe,
That love comes again...

'Cause,
The skies,
Are like a hard glide,
In a shining rainbow's light...

All dreams and fantasies,
Can be reality,
'Cause fantasy,
Is based on reality...
But all histories aren't the same...

'Cause,
Sometimes, we dive,
In our lives...

So,
Don't judge,
For what you see,
Judge,
For what it is...,
'Cause time passes,
But, memories remain...

And,
Listen,
To your heart,
'Cause,
The body, does,
The mind, thinks,
And, the heart, feels...,
While, the soul, lives...

So,
Always remember,
To remember the past,
To live the present,
And to wait and pursue the future...

Listen to your heart,
Before you are telling goodbye,
'Cause destiny,
Might lead to demise...,
But, remember that destiny can be changed...

Life is unpredictable,
But space and time,
Could be controlled...
And even if some die,
We may survive...

Remember,
That life,
Might have an endless beginning...

All that remains,
Is to be reborn...

My Midnight Grace

As I lay me 
down to sleep
I pray the lord
my soul to take
if I shall die
before I wake
please watch me God
all through the night
and wake me and my loved
ones
at morning light
please help me 
become successful
with the endeavors I seek
please send me a soul mate
in which I can keep
everlasting love
passionate heat
please grant me the serenity
to know right from wrong
and be able to lead
by example
strive to overcome
any downfall
please keep my spirit strong
through the issues
that toil in my soul
I aspire for diamonds in life lord
and all around me 
I see coal
I aspire to turn things around
for I feel my wishes have fallen
upon deaf ground
my heart has no voice
they struggle to hear my sound
I pray to be taken
away from my daily
battles, that humble
although compared to others
in the world
its not much trouble
to me, I feel
my spirit is caged
and yearns to be free
King of all Kings
in your image, you 
made me
you already know
each single step
my individual thought
you divinely bound me
in mothers womb
my existence you sought
bless me with the
chance to be
the person in which
you hoped for me
to soar like an eagle
dipping my talons of success
in life's sea
grant me an optimistic attitude
for that is the key
Amen to Thee

Drowning in your Desert of Lies

Tell me all about her
Is she beautiful?
Is she simple in her complex way?
Is she all you want and need?
Is she your everything?
Tell me is she beautiful?

Is she that pretty picture in your mind?
The one with whom you spend your time?
I bet she’s perfect
Is she the sun, the moon, the night, the day?
Is she the dream you wish would never go away?
Tell me is she beautiful?

Tell me is she special?
Is she perfect in her imperfections?
Is she fragile like a rose?
But yet so unbreakable
Tell me is she beautiful?

Is she the reason you can’t hide
The smile that’s stretched from eye to eye?
I bet you love her
Is the one who holds your heart?
The one who lies within your arms?
I bet she’s wonderful

Tell me am I beautiful?
Am I strong in my weak-hearted way?
Tell me that I’m worth it
If I fall on my knees and cry
Will you stay?

I've Touched Your Wings


"I could hold you for a million years, 
To make you feel my love!"

I've touched your wings
To make them softest blue...

Like the snowflakes, in Winter's silence, 
Swirling, softly falling...
To light your heart
In a velvet glow.

Wrapt am I in the feathery moonlit night,
Come to me, as the dark still shadows 
Of the clouds sweep low.

When the ancient spirits roamed the earth..
O, my love of long ago!

Come as the whippoorwill calls plaintively
To the night, when the silver light disappears;

I'm in the faint glimmer of rain,
I fade into the unknown --
You can trace me in your tears..

A POET'S PRAYER

Bless me
with the fluency of fury
and the articulate voice of anger.
Spare me though,
of its affliction of aggression.

Let my pen paint
the reflection of my thoughts 
like a mirror.
Thus my lines become
clones of my imaginations.

Let creativity be 
the stubborn shadow
of my verses
and let not inspiration
fly out of my window.

Pieces of Eternity (Seasons Finale)

Maybe it’s unacceptable 
Live a life capable of a true fable 
True friends never end 
But take you back to where it all began 
But hey misery gave us something to believe in 
Stress became a greater award as we achieved sin 
What could I say? Our savior died on a cross tough as pig skin 
Never once cried over the loss 
Forbidden fruit, Eden garden 
Excuse me, my lord, I beg your pardon 
And so what if these medics carry life in a carton 
But I ain’t trippin 
Simply because this is me until my dying day 
Please stop crying, you know I can’t stay 
I’m going to be the same until my dying day 
Over in that casket is where I’m trying to lay 
That’s right until my dying day 
True lost souls from the dark side 
Forever, we as mortals ride 
Peace is nothing, I fend for quiet time 
Rebels in riot lines 
Previous high school graduates 
Symbols of an adjective running toward fate 
True personality suffer the privilege of inmates 
How could you hesitate to ask 
There’s no stranger under this mask 
Lonely and unholy, who’s there to console me? 
I want to get away, forever restless 
You can see my similarities with the ocean 
I’m stress less 
Because this is me until my dying day 
Please stop crying, you know I can’t stay 
I’m going to be the same until my dying day 
Over in that casket is where I’m trying to lay 
My son, my friend 
We are but pieces of eternity 
Mesh on, mesh off 
Even at our best times we’re soft 
Who’s to say I’d regret my decision 
To lead a sinners life without God’s supervision 
On a one man mission 
And I know I don’t come around much 
Got my palms in reality 
Searching for something softer to touch 
Whisper in my ear, death makes me blush 
And Hell only flatters me 
One and one, through matter the winds scatter me 
I ain’t trippin, baby girl get off your knees 
You’re in the arms of a future me 
And I can’t see heaven from a distance 
Fire me over clouds like a piston 
Marching through blood 
But it’s all mud and water to Darkhouse 
Stand still let me mark my spouse 
Live my life as an outcast 
How could you even picture me at my last? 
Dear lord show some mercy on my followers 
Bless those that swallow dust to follow us 
No need to borrow sympathy 
Unforgiving sorrow made my enemies envy me

The Heart of men

      If my wretched soul
           wasn't incarcerate inside 
                the cage of my ribs for
                   my transgression 
                
                 I would walk to depth 
          of the horizon where the
 Sun sleep to set it on fire                       
like a burning desire, 
    and watch it burn to ash 
            My intentions are ruthless...
 
              If I grow feathers I would fly 
         to the roof of the great sky 
     cut the strings that the 
stars hang on, and violently 
laugh as they fall to the
      surface of the earth 
         and break their shine 
                 My intentions r ruthless...
 
                If I were a few step taller
          I would stretch my arms
    up the sky, and squeeze 
the rain out of the 
clouds so that the river
  become thirsty, and run
           to the ocean for water
              
              My intentions are ruthless,
              because I have the heart 
              of a men

On a Kiss

Silently star shimmering moonlit love,
Love’s moment moves me.      canopied night.
Whisper soft starsong melody shines;

Wings away in the glitter gleam dark.

Alas!           that kissingvelvet moments fly.

Shall We Dance?

Every word I write
I listen to, I see.
For the familiar sound
Is what I call poetry.
It may sound crazy,
But the music I hear
Surrounds me in distinction
And quality,
While I'm envisioning
All sorts of things.
When I read a genuine poem,
I feel like I'm ready 
To dance,
And I ask you to join me 
When I read one 
Aloud to you...


Shall we dance?

A Childs Prayer - God We Need To Talk

Tonight as my baby girl started to pray
She said God it's 8 O'Clock, 
And God We need to talk.
She said daddy help me pray, 
And daddy bow your head,
As we knelt beside her bed. 
she said God can you hear me?
Mommy always said you'd hear me,
If I would learn to pray, 
And that you would show me the way.

Well God I don't understand. 
Why you took my mommy away.
Daddy always says i'll understand, 
When I grow up some day.
She said God, you need your son. 
Well I need my mommy to,
And I know that my daddy, 
Would be happier with mommy. 
Cause daddy talks to her, 
And mommy's not even there.

God can you please,
Give my mommy wings, 
So she can come to see us.
She always kept our house clean, 
And God I know, 
She keeps your house clean to.
And God I miss mommy's big hugs, 
Daddy says your son gives hugs to.
So I know if my mommy had wings, 
She could hug me and daddy.

Well God I want to thank you,
For being there to listen, 
And God think about what I said.
And tell mommy that I love her, 
And God I love you to.
Oh just one more thing God, 
Help my daddy stop crying.
Thank you God, Amen, 
Then she turned to me and said,
Goodnight daddy, I love you.

I was still on my knees, 
Beside my little girls bed, 
With tears running from my eyes.
I gave my baby a goodnight kiss, 
And said sweet dreams baby girl.
Then I went to my room, 
And kissed my wife's picture, 
And with tears in my eyes,
I knelt down to pray, 
I said God, We need to talk.

reflections

For my days fall away
But I remember you 
I want to touch the memories
I just don’t know what to say
As my days fall away

I vaguely remember the chicken pox
Colored popcorn 
And my first grade made
Robotic cereal box
The hen and the fox

I remember wanting a fire truck one Christmas
The marble red paint
The glass window in which it stained
I remember my foster mom saying it’s this one or nothing
I remember being too stubborn to accept the smaller version

Its these memories I daunt 
It’s these reflections that constantly haunt
These were the highlights of my life
These were the only happy moments I knew
Yet I left them, moments so few

I remember where the wild things are
I remember marshmallow peanuts
Trick or treating and roasted pumpkin seeds
I remember visitation days 
The beach-less sand the way we as children once played

I remember the door that never closed
Mexican casserole and never getting enough
Being afraid to swim 
Yet finding my way to the roof of the house 
With no way of getting down

I remember my first field trip
The dinosaurs and wanting to be an astronaut
I remember my San Francisco 49ers jersey
Number eighty, jerry rice my favorite player
Now days I tend to only clash with the mayor 

It seems that images follow a window of time
And after it’s exhausted 
We summon them our memories

Ur Angel of Sadness

I once was your Armageddon, your mystic legend
Times we argued, realized it was foolish and grinned
Times we laughed, time is a luxury we do not have
Let us old hands old man
The lady beside you, she sang a beautiful tune 
The things we don’t want to lose 
The loved ones we hate, similar to the above sons mate
The people we want to please 
Those we set a perfect yet fragile image
Only to be later ceased
Precious moments we so desperately want to keep 
Shh! You speak as though you’re never coming back
But I will not return, best wishes, Ur angel of sadness
I’m a survivor
I work miracles, I was yours
I was everything and nothing anyone would care for 
I am still your Armageddon, your mystic legend
My objectives to make you laugh, smile, and mourn
Your rapture, warriors of eternity, a child lost and torn
Mission suffered massive failure 
Let us hold hands this final hour
For your misery is ours
You can say you loved him
You can say you placed no other above him
Despite how it sounds
The individual will everyone around him
Is the loneliest person around
In memory of those whom titled him “Angel of Sadness”

Alone with you

After all this time we can finally be together.
This night I will remember forever.
You are as beautiful as when I first saw your face.
No one can make me feel like when I am in your embrace.
Your eyes still hypnotize me and bring out my strongest desire.
My heart still burns for you with an unquenchable fire.
I still shiver when you touch my skin.
You bring out the passion and love from within.
We are in our own world away from anyone.
You saved yourself just for me.
There is no place in the world I would rather be.
Than all alone just you and me
For you I feel a mixture of everything.
Love lust passion sensuality and all the confusion it brings.
My love is stronger only for you.
I am safe and secure Alone with you.

fear

i know your weaknesses.
I know your doubts.
I know when you're feeling down.
And your pessimistic thoughts.
I have crippled your thought process.
I have made you sulk.
I even broke you down,
Worrying about your insecurities.
I have kept misery within your grasp.
Knowing you're searching for true happiness.
I've kept you away from the unknown.
And all the unexperienced.
I've even kept you away from love.
Knowing you won't know how to handle it.
Why deal with something you can't control.
When you can't step up to the challenges.
You've tried to get rid of me.
Yeah, I know you fought back.
But I've kept striking.
once your defenses were down.
Eating your confidence and well-being.
I know one day you will find the courage,
To put me out of my misery,
But when you have those feelings.
Of nervousness, tightness, and heat flashes,
I'll be there.
You know my name.

Generic Minds

generic minds listen to generic music
have generic thoughts that are unknowingly abusive
watch generic things talk about generic things
gee this generic *****is spreading like a disease
better get your flu shot 
thats what they said to me
a suicidal vaccine 
a subliminal killing spree
its contagious and the outrageous
thing about it is that the people are blind in an eye
that they didn't even know they had
it's sickening to watch these clueless civilians 
inside the looking glass
with nightmares of being free
without a key to their mind
for it is trapped in the frequency
in the illusion of time
bathed in our universe
killing all that refuse to see
those that admit to hypocracy
or see the message in hip hop
how cant you see
the message in the lyrics that
bring adolescents to their knees
from bullet wounds conflicting their flesh
contradicting that they're the best
but the songs keep telling them that they dont need no rest
that they dont wanna go home
that they should ride alone
with the gat as their only companion
and so the only path they choose is the one that they're told
until they grow old and hope turns to a window pane
inside a window pane, until all they feel is pain
they realize that the music itself is ashamed
so whats to look up to
when you cant even speak when you cant even walk because you look so bleak
your eyes are sunken from the tv you're infested with the dee zees
now its too late to turn around and live for your conscious
so when youre screaming oh please
close your eyes and bring your mind to life
open your eyes for the first time
and never wonder why
since the answer this entire time
has been inside
and you better find it before you die
you dont want your soul to be in a pool with all the others
a buncha brothers missing their mothers
but only seeing strangers
only feeling the haters
wishing they would have used their minds when they had them
and now its too late,
now it's time for another new born fate to grab them

A Grown And Sexy Lullaby

I can sing you a lullaby that could comatose an insomniac
Like the landing of a butterfly a rose would welcome this contact
My voice sprinkles her with relaxation the sandman could'nt match
Her eyes twinkle with admiration like birds when their eggs hatch

The soft aroma of vanilla intertwined with jasmine fills the air
A few coronas as a summers night wind blows through her hair
Time seems to stop as if a deity entered the scenario
Those eyelids drop as a cello escapes the stereo

Her pillow overjoyed exhaled feathers that would shame a peacock
A sparrow was deployed from heaven with such a divine restock
A sleeping beauty in a trance only broken by pure intentions
A dream with visions of romance she'll probably never mention.

A Love Poem For You

love  and let 
love find you


Details | Free verse | |

Combined We Be

You're a mad rapper
I'm a mad hatter
Ideas in my head always bleeding
So lyrics you won't be needing
You spit them
I write them
You rap them
I rhyme them
Lines we be exchanging
Like I'd be interchanging
The lanes fast on the freeway
Paving the roads leading away
From the ghetto
Like Pinocchio was to Geppetto
We be each others woodwork
Combined we be the spork
Together in our minds
Like buns on girls behinds
We ain't getting lost
Whatever the cost
We'll stay in the light
Never fly stay and fight
Cause we be the illest
Cough Cough we infect the rest
Wanting to be part of the fuss
They try and copy 'r' us
But they will never ever
Be as swift or as clever...

One Love, A Tribute to Bob Marley

“One love…one heart, let’s get together and feel alright…
As it was in the beginning (one love), so shall it be in the end (one heart); give thanks and 
praise to the Lord, and I will feel alright…” Bob Marley, Prophet.


I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.

We are, but before we can be, we must realize,
that the only way TO be, is I and I – the trinity;
the I and I makes the one that was, is, and ever
shall be – 
the one yearning to be set free 
unto its brothers and sisters to its beginnings 
and endings, 
and on and on and on, and led into infinity
by its singers.

It is the one that does not seek, 
and can only be found; rediscovered 
like the greatest treasure the earth ever buried, 
and the heavens ever knew –
                                the reason for all things…

So dance as one voice; sing as two feet 
pounding
the earth with your glory; 
free the one rhythm that has been vibrating between toes 
for all of time –
dance beneath and above all things,
and sing the songs of freedom!

Rise up, rise up, rise up and dance!
Free the chains from your bound feet,
And feel the weight released –
A trinity of I and I;
One love, one heart, let’s get together
And feel alright…

I and I, 
and together, we,
are one.




*Inspired by Michele's Music to your Pen, contest and my brother in vision, the man himself, 
Mr. Bob Marley who as soon as I put him on, I'm smiling and filled with great light. :)

From ONE LOVE, by: Bob Marley

We Welcome the Sun

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 

A gleaming sunrise is seen in the distance – shedding relief 
Bursting forth like fireworks in the dark blue sky 
Hues of beauty and sincerity washes away our grief
The cheery clouds come together like lovers embracing one another

I’m never waving goodbye
   
It’s so surreal… and magnificent to see this scene unfold
You lift up the sparkling light… you’re an angel from up above
It’s so vibrant – the illuminated sight never dulled 
You bring us luck and excitement – 

You’re as pleasant as a dove 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the love
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To omit the darkness 
To abolish the distress
To conceal the darkness
And reveal the halo
Hovering around your head
Burning away the dread 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun

An ocean of love is rubbing against my feet
Blankets of comfort embrace me now… our love will never dry
You treat us with reverence and I repeat – 
You’re as pleasant as a dove – taking wing from on high 
We welcome the sun in the morning 
We welcome the sun with open arms
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
We welcome the sun 

A speedy breeze is whistling in my ears
Spiraling mad like a spinning top
Spiraling mad with all of its might 
You’re very intriguing – you casted away our fears 
Your gorgeous eyes
Project bright green and blue
You’re special in His sight 
He welcomes you
We welcome the hope 
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun 
To lighten up your load 
And lead you to the mercy road
Where you and I will escape to paradise
To drive out all of the negativity
To conceal the wretched farewells
To reveal the light in goodbye 

We welcome the sun
We welcome the sun
We welcome you
With open arms

Rose Wine

Your strong hand 
beneath my head
my Love in your Blood
turned from friendship
did spread
into More
the first time you
took my Hand
and traveled every
line, of my Flesh land
the way you reflect your soul
Into my Eyes, 
makes me forget my small stature
shape, size
in this world
I wish to carry your 
future child
be it boy or girl
be them strong of spirit
Smarts of street and class
leaders of Eminence
Sweet mixed with Sass
I see this future
as I fall head first, spilling
into your secure embrace
like a single bottle of Rose Wine
Down to the last Taste

Mother and son

I cherish you,
If you cherish me.

You brought me to life,
We began to meet through time,
Even though,
Sometimes you don't comprehend me,
Sometimes you don't understand me,
That sometimes time isn't enough,
That sometimes instincts get uncontrolled...,
But still,
You were designated for my life,
And you profile my living...
We share lives...

Although,
Time brings maturity,
And time doesn't last forever,
As well as we don't last forever...

There is no such thing,
As total perfection,
Even though,
Thank you...

The Song of a Teenage Girl                2/2



Still if you have decided to send me to my in laws, place, O dear,

This year, O My Dear Father and Mother please, 

Do not forget to send my brother on Rakhi* 

So that I can tie up the Rakhi String* on the wrist of my sweet brother.

You know O Mother, being a newly wedded bride, I won’t speak much in my in laws place.

If I speak, who would bother to understand the feelings of my heart.

Still if you have decided to send me to my in laws, place, 

O Mother, Please don’t forget, what I have told you today,

Only then, your daughter would be happy in her new alien place.

which symbolizes the love &  the emotional bond between them.

DON'T LET HER GO

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would

If I had chance
If had a chance again

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would

If I had chance
If had a chance again



Before she walked out the door
She screamed and threw glass on
 the floor she said I hate you I said
 I hate you more she said I am never
 coming back I said well now I am glad for sure

She looked me in my eyes
I looked her in her eyes
And we wondered if our
Words were truth or lie
She started to cry she tryed
To hold tears back so she
Rubbed her eyes and walked
Threw the door

I grabbed the broom and 
swept the glass on the floor 
I heard three gun shots then
I opened the door and
there she was on the floor...
it was her jealous ex boyfriend
 she didn't want him no more...

I kneeled in her blood streaming on
 the floor,and lifted her lifeless body off the floor

I Said come back baby
Come back I won't say
Those harsh things any more

Come back baby
Come back why the
hell did you go
Out that door
Out that door

Please get off the floor
Let's go in side

Her soul was no longer inside

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would 

If I had chance
If had a chance again

If I had a chance to say I love you

Then I would
Then I would

If I had chance
If had a chance again

Glisten in the Moonlight

Your glorious emerald eyes 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Glisten in the moonlight 
Delight dances in the water
I watch it joyfully
You are set free from the cage...
You're like a dove soaring in the sky
You are the rain...
drizzling down in ecstasy 
A hint of ecstasy is shown in your reflection...
When you caress me... I'm relieved... 
From the stress that forced me in chains
I knew we'd be on the brighter side of tomorrow 
We're glistening in the moonlight 
I knew we'd become candles in the heavens above us
We're glistening in the moonlight
For a moment, I felt your presence...your radiant with sympathy 
I saw at first glance the dark side of you
Tonight, we'll be together and fly through the horizon 
We'll watch the sunset say its last goodbye...
We'll wave a greeting at the moon! 
We glisten in the moonlight...
What if I was as handsome as the lion...
Roaring with pride and pure courage
What if we were glistening in the moonlight?
Would it bring health to our bones tonight?
Would it make our heart rejoice and overflow with delight?
Would we be able to survive this horrifying plight?
Would we be shimmering like a candlelight?
We're glistening in the moonlight... (6)
Ohh...yeah...ooh yeah...ooh yeahh...
We reach to the stars and hope we can trace a shooting star
I feel the coolness run down my fingers...
We're glistening in the moonlight
You're the dandelions in the fields
You're the gorgeous view that I marvel at everyday
When you kiss me, I live my dreams
We glisten in the moonlight
In a quick moment, I sense a feeling of endless renewal 
I roam inside of your illuminating maze 
Glow on... sunshine... 
Glow on...sunshine...
Glisten in the moonlight...
Listen to the truth and rub it in
You are ravishing like the sunset
But you're ascending while I'm descending
I feel extremely guilty
I wish I could glisten with you in the moonlight
You're glistening in the moonlight (6) 
Ohhh yeahh... oohhh yeahh... ohh yeahh
You're glistening in the moonlight (4)
We go our own way
I wish we can glisten like the moon
Glisten like the sun 
There's a dream concealed inside of me...
Reveal your light and pour it upon me
You glisten in the appealing moonlight
While I'm subsiding... you're fulfilling your dreams
Of gliding across the horizon 
You're independence... keeps on scorching with satisfaction
While I'm below you... 
Your emerald green eyes
Stared me down like a hawk...
Your emerald eyes
Gaze down at me genuinely...
I wish we could flee together in reality...
That could be a possibility
To glisten in the moonlight in glee
We were glistening in the moonlight (3)
But that was only a dream...
I'll pray that it turns into a reality
We were glistening in the moonlight 
Now, I've misplaced my delight...
Will I ever experience such a brilliant night?

Evergreen


The tide surges
over binary laugh-lines.

Seattle, oh Seattle,
unless you are able
to find oxygen in conch shells
and survive in an underwater cottage,
it's high-time to teach your soul to swim.

The tide ebbs in and out,
allowing us to re-energize in-between takes.
But don't forget to practice your part.

Take 3, this is the scene:

a moonlight-key opened a treasure chest
filled with digital photos of submerged guilt and shame.
These waves are here to stay,
unable to douse the underworld burning in his beard.

Wolverhampton, do you remember
when he came as he was,
ready to entertain us
with a belly full of liquid-bogeymen?

Do they remember how the seahorses kissed
to the sound, to the sound?
The kiss lasted for 230 seconds, times three --

and again and again and again!

Seattle, oh Seattle,
your Evergreens sparkle with rubied feathers,
your road-signs are a bit cleaner now.
Hey, there's always going to be the contradiction
of mud and bleach in Aberdeen,
so there's no longer a reason 
to feel aqua seafoam shame.

There's no longer a reason
to feel aqua seafoam shame*

________________________________________________________

Author's notes: For this poem I used the cut-up technique,
cutting-apart and re-mixing specific stanzas of my poems: 
"ADDWDDMD"(written, September 2010), and, "Currents"(written, July 2010).

I use my own polished technique:
Instead of leaving the initial raw result of the 'cut'/scramble,
I switch words, and add words here and there to offer extra cohesion. 
This is most evident in the switching-around of place names(Seattle, Wolverhampton, 
Aberdeen). Had I left the place names as they initially 'fell', the poem would have 
made even less sense to some of the readers.
I also add punctuation and breaks; formulate stanzas.
I also allow repetition of certain words and some of the newly formed lines.

With my polished cut-up technique, I cut-up/scramble more words than I want 
used in total for the end result. 
I create an 'over-flow pool' of words to inject into the overall shifting of words.
For example, with this scrambled chunk of words:

with / chest / photos / filled / treasure / guilt / submerged,

I switch around the words, while pulling "of" and "and" from the over-flow pool,
and take "submerged" and "digital" from a chunk of scrambled words that 'fell' in 
an entirely different area of the mix.

I end-up with: "filled with digital photos of submerged guilt and shame."

That line triggered the idea to use three words which have been swimming around
inside of my head for years; to use the words in the closing lines of this poem. 
These three words are not from the original stanzas that I cut-up,
so this piece isn't technically 100%, a cut-up poem.

I was inspired by the cut-up technique contest which is currently running,
to attempt another one of these types of polished cut-up poems,
but since I incorporated three 'outside' words and polished the piece quite a lot,
I will not be entering this poem into the contest, because I wasn't willing to 
compromise my intent in order for the poem to fit the specifications of being a 
cut-up poem(100%) in its purest sense as defined by several sources.

Daybreak

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

Giving In To The Gray

Overwhelmed with fear I whispered into the rain
Disarming defenses, Giving in to the gray 
Tearing down all of my shelter within my hollowed decay
While this echoing silence gave every tear drop a name
They begin filling the voids with mundane hopes for a change
Heaven will save me from this hell and blue skies will reign
Lazily lay in green grass watching clouds drift away
It's all but a deflated dream now that the colors have changed
My thoughts have become restless noise of uncertainties rearranged
Damning all of my emotions, lies decorated with grace
Now I stand with a hardened heart in the sobering autumn rain 
I'm disarmed and defenseless, Giving in to the gray

leave for the first time for her in-law’s place. She do not want to go to her  father in

Song of a Teenage Girl      1/2


Why you are sending me to an alien place, the place of my in laws, O Mother dear and Father,

I played and enjoyed my child hood and youth, in your courtyard O dear Mother & Father,

You always kept me on your eyelids like a pearl of tears,

O Mother, you always kept me close to your bosom, like the beatings of heart, where I laughed and bloomed. 

O Father, after quarrelling with my brother, I used to weep for hours, 

Whenever you call my name, I used to be so proud of you, O my dear Father.

O Father, by seeing a smile on your face, we used to bloom like a flower.

Then,  why you are sending me to an alien place*   O My Mother and Father *,


Please listen to me, O dear Father & Mother, if you have already decided to send me to my in-laws,

-Now you have to give food and water to the Parrots on the Tree.


-O, Mother you have to give now fodder and water to our Cow in our courtyard.

-And do not forget to give grains to our oxen Chun Mun, whom I look after in our fields.

-My melody singing Koyal* would be sitting and waiting for me on the Mango tree.

O Mother, it is Koyal,   who taught me how to sing a sweet song,

Please do not forget to look after that lovely singing bird.

Listen to me, O My dear Father & Mother, if you have already decided to send me to my in laws,

All my birds, animals and my childhood friends would be waiting for me with tearful eyes, O Mother,

Please tell them your daughter has left this place forever and has gone,

To her in laws, a place so alien to her.   ....  concluded in part 2

Draconian II

[The Puppeteer]
The storm I see you in
Caught in the race of Caïn
Held by the arms you cannot see--the conducter of Ennui 
-No stronger than the void you hold within-
It began with a hope, an obsession
Casted into, slavery of repugnant possessions 
Granted by, the Avaricious Lords, the ones we serve for
-They Told Us to pray, hope, away from despair, the despair caused by their immaculate Hands
Malice, envy, greed, was granted to me, The Feudal Dream, we want to be Them, just like him
-just how he solaces us, ambivalent hope, engendering knives to my throat 

[The Fall]
In this Valley of morning and weeping
Love lies bleeding, in desperate fear
With their talons, the hunt to rip out thy heart 
As each velvet petal falls apart
Her body chained in their bile and lies, covered with their red-spy
-sent just to check if our souls are in line, do not defy 
Her blood velvet and pure, drips away with innocence of the amber guardian 
The soil of plagues, beggars, and graves
Is know her home, the coven of solace
Though the seed has died--resurrection Is near passing through death's fear
One stronger than you--and thy funeral skies
She is alive--anew
But the vapors still remain
The Apocalypse is here, do we fear?
Just for the death of our sins
Elysia never Seemed so far away

[Our Damnation]
Solitary ruins, Fulfill their visions
We strayed far from the depths within 
We all lingered to his solace--lies
-you make the sign everyday, but lack toknow the name
We are just the toys, he pulls all of the strings
We are nothing in this burning world
of Decadence, and Failed Semblance

[Draconian] 
Draconian--Reach for the shadows within
Draconian--Break from the Fallen's son
Draconian--Their empirical lies, only die
Draconian--Reach the shadows within

Words of Life

Drowning in the pool of anguish…oh…oh…
I’m venturing into the forest…and I want to hear the words seep out 
Release these aching sorrows…I worry my soul’s drying out…
like a drought…
Drain out the fluids from my heart
It’s gouging me…bruising me to the core…

**chorus** 
Embrace the light…embrace the midnight sky…
You fall in my arms – you die so warm
Shed me more sun to lift up my spirits
From the…underground…and release me – I’m breathless
I’m drowning in doubt…ooh… oh… 


Remember me…I’m falling…into my swirling fate…hanging on the roots 
Strangling my heart…distorting in my veins… I’m bleeding so softly – cut out the wood…
Splintering me…I’m shattering… and I’m falling in the abyss
Bring me more radiance from my candle light
Warp me up in bliss…don’t let the midnight sky…don’t take away my delight
From the…ocean…and save me—save me…oh… oh…  I’m failing 

*chorus*

I’m drowning in regret…ooh..oh…
Hit the bull’s eye in my heart…embrace the light
And don’t leave me hanging in the abyss…hand me a kite!
Save me before I fall apart…shut out the night
And don’t let the dusk escape us…

I must confess…
I must confess…
I hate to see you abandon the light…
But I’m not the one to save you from the night
Ooh…ohh…

*Chorus* 

Splintering lies fill your heart 
I want to kiss it goodbye…
But you’ve mastered it like a piece of art
I want to kiss the abyss and die…
Dry… I wanna touch the sky with my whole soul
But I’m failing and the end of time has taken its toll
Tainted sorrow…swims around me…I dwell where the waters depart
But the anguish still swarms in my heart…
I’m failing…my heart stops beating
And my desires are fleeting
From my grasp
And the monsters laugh at me…as I fall… 

*chorus*

Embrace the midnight sky…catch me…catch me…
As I fall in death’s arms…I die so cold
And your heart is made of gold

Untangle the darkness & take away the nightmares 
Answer our prayers & block out the night 
Erase the heartaches & wipe away our tears
Unravel Your words of life & delight

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.

A Simple Southern Christmas

It's gonna be a simple southern Christmas here.
All I want from Santa is some egg nog, bourbon and beer.
I'm gonna wait on Santa Christmas Eve night,
and when he's not lookin' I just might,
steal his reindeer.
It's gonna be a simple southern Christmas here.
I'm sending out my Christmas cheer.
I'm gonna sit on my front porch swing and sing.
It will be a good thing to hear those jingle bells ring.
I thought I seen Santa on the backwoods bayou road,
but instead it was a big fat toad.
It'a a wonderful simple southern Christmas here.
Santa just brought me some egg nog, bourbon, and beer.
When he wasn't lookin' I stole his reindeer.
So now I can deliver my Christmas cheer.
But hurry, hurry, I'm in a rush,
got to give that reindeer a little push.
Got to go, got to go,
got to get home to fix my gumbo.
It is Christmas day,
and I'm in  a rush I must say.
It's gonna be a simple southern Christmas here.
Just add egg nog, bourbon and beer.
Mix it up with some Christmas cheer.
I'm ready for Christmas every year.

Let Me In

You feel the warmth

sun on your bodies, your skin hot to touch

Got to let the burn go under

Your lips a blush

flowing the blood cells, this mouth can erupt

Skin of earth is rough don't rupture

and I say hey

hey

hey

What lovely evening; moon above my eye

and I say wait

wait

wait

Didn't think this evening...pressure's building high

I shield; a corpse

Something you wanted, you did have to say

but my tongue got caught right under

I need a road

Tires are heaving, this run can't be raced

let me fall, don't watch my blunder

And I say come

come

come

Sit beside me friend, I didn't say: Just let it end

And I say stay

stay

stay

I know my truths are hard to find, but you'll dig deep for a little lie

Let me in

Let me in

Let me in

I didn't say: Let it end

Just let me in

breath from my wind

You drank my taste

don't let it go to waste

You let me in

breath from my wind

You drank my taste

Don't let it go to waste

Don't let it go to waste

Don't let it go to waste

...


Just reach again; I'll pace.

Wisdom of Heights---Climb with Me

This morning
bells toll
a trumpet sounds
but refuses to blare
it just doesn't know 
how to harm
what it takes
to infect the living 

trees
earth
and sound
survive sadness
out last the past
bond brothers and sisters
of sky
air 
mud 
and water
as it loses 
to a force

some days...

this morning
it wins
because the vibration knows god
and is ONE

and though human imperfections
sit in the shadows of it's path
perfections will
and forever will
prevail

people
so arrogant 
we choose to destroy 
but how can we concentrate 
on methods of malcontent
when god sits at our breakfast table?
urging
as father urges child
"get up!"
"move on!"
"stand on two feet!"
"breath child!"

he tolls the bell
as we lay on deaf ears
he loosens ties with anger 
as the path warns and wears
thrusting
driving this cosmic ship 
of no loses
only tiny
arrogant setbacks

and he smiles
for he knows
what we yet
have to find...
and all is well.

HEART BEAT

When I pull away, you push

I’m silent, like a single finger to my blush lips

motioning “shush”

I feel like a caged tiger

craving freedom and lovers flesh

a prisoner of your personal horror

I must digress

I loose myself, into my mystical, magical, mind

to keep this empty agony, from burning into

each minute, of my lifetime

my body, feels frozen to your touch

your kisses, cannot melt my hatred

toward your soulless lust

I am strong from within, I cannot,

will not

let him win,

A real live porcelain doll I have

turned in

Two

lines forming a cross, hold my inner eye 

for the Lords love catches my tears as I cry

when your fists, strike my body

a bloody mess, you leave my lie

punishing me for your insecurities

and false lies

a chance to escape you, this dream

has me hypnotized

each day of mine, ends in silent sorrow

and begins, with prayer filled sighs

For love, does not beat you behind backs

and then smile in your eyes

using such smiles to disguise

to the outside, false facial expressions

keep things trill

I pray, for the strength one day,

to fight my prisoner back

perhaps kill

Skin Deep

If I could dream
for anything
I would dream of Peace, Love
and Unity
for all Bloods & Crips
all gangs, are in need of a change
for you represent such ignorance
and scrutiny 
Difference in colors worn
Sides in which you were born
are truly all that divides
when the two opposing sides
collide
and it makes no sense
for we all Bleed
Blue turned Red
Blood Inside
And a future generation
is hard to provide
when death, is like your shadow
creepin' up by your side
and drive-by shootings happen
each late night, outside
where running seems the only option
to know
for no places to hide
no defense for your demise
for a difference in colors worn
and what side in which you were born
is truly all that divides
when these two sides collide
and it makes no sense to me
for we all Bleed
Blue turned Red
Blood Inside

Accept Or Decline

Like maggots they simply crawl from the grave
Nothing seems normal or abnormal they just live on
As if the stars shine for no reason out the what once a man gave
Simple dots out in the sky appear for never known reason
They are the coexistence of our soul
Asking were and why for no optional existence
I know is something that may be too tall
But in this era what kid which knows nothing knows were to lay with presence 

I know is hard to fall
But once in the sand the snow is just a corrosive pillow of dreams
To lose yourself out in the dark
Is all a matter of a doll
Only a matter of a darkened shark

Is a reason to exist
As the same beast comes to devour the dream of your own believes
I know how thick and how much it shift
I do believe in the presence of a well known man in balance that willows 
For a time I was much lost
Yet I live hanging on the edge for god knows how much more
For a lifetime only with twenty one I wonder how I manage to be frost
Is a rare find is just a rare balance for
For the devil to take over me
But I decline because is my blood to let flow
I accept because it gives me so much more with my wonder of knee
Is a forevermore flow and a forever changing glow

God made me and I doubt that so much
God held me high and let me fall and I feel that with much rush
I declined the very existence of what humankind uses to say we exist 
I know no more what to see, hear, smell, touch or perhaps think 
But one thing is certain and I must move before the devil moves me from this room so bright
I will not fall just yet from the edge I still hold on to so dark
This is my eyes placed on some words 
This is my fall rewritten by the world so full of flaws

FRIEND STAND BY ME- contemporary style , blues

VERSE ONE:When the times get so weary and the days seem so long.
When the night owl sits in the trees.
When the silence is louder than the clock that is ticking.
I want someone I can trust to stand,yes, to stand by me.

CHORUS:
Stand by me, Dear Friend, stand by me, when I am weary.
When the night moon is shining down on me.
When the quiet starts to ring and wakes the night birds in the distance.
I want my friend,yes my friend, to stand by me.

VERSE TWO: When my time is approaching, and my sight is dimming.
When my light is falling down on me.
When I look in the distance and the angels are coming.
I want my friend, yes my friend to stand by me.

A Newspaper

Today 
I read a newspaper, 
In it was half a column 
On a people starving and dying, 
The rest of it was : 
Photos, 
Crossword puzzle, 
And faded letters.

Hey you fella,
Gotta smoke for me.

You bring blanket,
Flour and tea.
You come along
Sit with me.

Come from my earth.
Belong back again
To the rocks and plains.

Every my child 
A star in the sky,
You look 
You never never see.

Power of Your Love

To a Bride and Groom

You have the power
over my love
to make my day rain or shine
it all began the day you asked me
"to be mine" and I wrote my name
in blood, on your hearts
dotted line
the power of my love
to fuel what feeds within me
pounce on me as a tiger
humble me as a mouse
your strength envelopes me
as if standing in an unbreakable
glass house
you have the power
over my stare, as you glare
into my inner spirits soul
those who dare to try to divide
I heed them to beware
the power you have over my love
leaves me content, without a care
floating together, we share, in
true loves enchanting bliss
what started years ago, with a friendly
hug, is reincarnated within every
new days kiss

Your Presence

Your presence I feel oh so near, it help me to relieve 
some of my fears of all my everyday cares, I feel your
presence eveywhere.  Whenever I walk down the street,
I can feel the patter of your feet.  I can feel you walking
next to me telling tales of what I mean to you and thinking
about all the things we used to do.

Your presence is so close, it's as if I can smell your fragrance
right under my nose.  I am thinking of your smiling face all
next to mines, telling me how you will love me until the
end of time.  Your presence is oh so strong and as I travel
throughout this day it lingers on.  When I decide to stop and
dine, it's as though I feel your hand right next to mines.  

When I sat down to eat, I can see your eyes staring into
mines, and you sitting there sipping on some wine.
Your presence means so much to me and this is the
way I want it to always be, me feeling you and you
feeling me until forever and eternity.

PERIOD OF THE DARK AGES


IT’S THE PERIOD OF THE DARK AGES WITH STREETS WITHOUT FACES 
BOOKS WITHOUT PRINTINGS AND PRINTS WITHOUT PAGES 
IMPRISONED WITHOUT CAGES AND PAID THE PRICE WITHOUT WAGES
IT’S THE PERIOD OF THE DARK

SO LET ME TAKE THE STAGE AND LET MY WORDS BE ENRAGED 
THAT BABYLON, STAGGER ON ONE FOOT, IS TRIPPING
ON ITS OWN IMMORALITY, PRACTICALLY EVIL
KILLING ITS OWN PEOPLE, MAKING THEM THINK 
AS IF, THEY WERE NOT EQUAL. THIS IS NO SEQUEL 
AS ACID RAIN KILLS THE NATURAL TERRAIN 
CAUSING SANITY TO GO DOWN THE DRAIN 
MENTAL PAIN TRAINING THE BRAIN TO WITH STAIN 
THIS OPEN BOOK PHILOSOPHY, CONSCIOUSLY AND MENTALLY 
BEING A MINORITY TO LIFE. L. I. F. E.: 
LIVING IN FEAR ETERNALLY
I HOPE YOU ARE HEARING ME
SOON BREATHING WILL BE AN ACCESSORY OR A COMMODITY 
PAID FINANCIALLY BEING DEATH TO THE ECONOMY

THE TRUTH IS NOW BEING TELEVISED
AS THE IGNORANT TURNING WISE
CHILDREN ARE TELLING PARENTS THEIR DEMISE
 PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE 
WHAT THEY’RE WORTH OR OTHERWISE
OR HAS MAN’S EGO, GONE MAMMOTH SIZE?
FIND THE LOGICAL TIES:
THAT THE DEF COULD ALWAYS HEAR 
WHAT THE BLIND CAN ENVISION
READING PAGES WITHOUT PRINTING 
LIKE RELIGION:
THE BLIND TEACHING THE BLIND IN HOPE THEY WILL SEE
BUT THIS DOES NOT GO DOWN LOGICALLY 
BECAUSE WE LIVE IN TIMES OF DEMONSTRATION 
BUT NOTHING IS PERFORMED 
IN TIMES OF RECREATION BUT WE’VE NEVER REFORMED 
IN TIMES OF INFORMATION BUT WE ARE NEVER INFORMED
THAT THESE ARE THE LAST STAGES 
WHERE OUR MINDS ARE PRISON CAGES 
AND DEATH’S RAGE IS ARE PAID IN WAGES
THAT IS WHY I SAY:


IT’S THE PERIOD OF THE DARK AGES WITH STREETS WITHOUT FACES 
BOOKS WITHOUT PRINTINGS AND PRINTS WITHOUT PAGES 
IMPRISONED WITHOUT CAGES AND PAID THE PRICE WITHOUT WAGES
IT’S THE PERIOD OF THE TRUE DARK AGES

Nothing ever lasts

As nothing ever lasts,
and everything must change;
you are here, moving fast,
as a needy counting his wage.

As you listen to all, 
and talk only to few; 
you will never fall,
that’s what I already knew.

As the summer coming soon,
and there is no need for you to crack;
you’ll be dancing Under moon,
as you are not getting back

The Nobodies

We are the nobodies
Unloved, un-hated, un-phased
Outcasts of the world of popularity.
Banished to the fringes of existence.
Finding joy- is a rarity- no solidarity
Always seen at a distance-
because we are the resistance

Nameless faceless and speechless-
When we speak the response is an echo
Bouncing around in a black hole
We can't hide from it so lets go
Into the darkness of our abandoned soul

Alone, lost, and shrouded by darkness
left to face the shadows of heaven
Lost in life- Our suffering is endless!
To each other we are brethren. 

We are numbed by pain
And blinded by shame
we are social life's bane
playing popularity's game

We are the nobodies...

Filled with Song

My fingers brush the strings of an old guitar, hidden away in the closet in my room.
A small smile plays my lips and I close my eyes, picturing me playing that guitar.
Me singing some song on a bench in the rain.
Singing the music that makes my heartbeat pulse through my whole body.

I can sing. I know I can, I just need practice.
I laugh as I picture the look on my friends faces when I tell them this.
I smile and put the guitar away, all the while thinking of how I'd love to learn to play 
that guitar.
To go to a friends party and sing. To make them feel what I do when I ride a high 
brought on by nothing more or less than music.

Breathless, I sit on my bed, my face glowing.
I will learn. I will learn to let out the song that makes my heart fill with so much joy I 
feel like I'm going to explode.

Still smiling, I put on my favorite music and let that high take me to a higher place.

Reflections: Intellectualism

To Dine, To Die;
Conversations spiral
While thunderous eyes
Grasp concepts to recycle.

Constant debt crisis
A political paradox
Grating social devices
Over the sorting of socks.

Pseudo-analysis
An endless groan
Argumental paralysis
The debate grants no throne.

Existentialism
Over a roast
Potatoes won't listen
To who talks the most.

"That point is so interesting"
The floor is open for chat
"What is real?" not a thing
"Meow" adds the cat.

Vamp

Hiding a hint of melody
In the free-wheeling ramble
Of the piano’s opening phrases

It’s a pitter pat preview like
Kelly’s singing steps as he
Splashes through a street of rain

It’s a long drawn out unraveling
Of the tune on Ray Charles’ piano
Before he shouts out a bluesy version
Of our patriotic America the Beautiful

Holding The Sun

I grew up in a place I didn't want to be
Became someone that i knew i didn't want to be
Society grabbing me by the throat telling me to be me
But who are they to say that I should be what is not me?
Catastrophe shaking this world, leaving fault lines at the finish line
Scarred for what we have to look forward to
You can't put your soul on hold for all your past pretensions
Earthquakes changing the course of continuation
Throwing vibes from left and right
Hitting the pedal to ignite
What imperial dilemmas that arise from such despise
From what i know i'm just another reflection of disguise, who am i?
Those that float around with no worries in the world,
Don't care about the money, all they've got is what's gold
The people who kill, for power and respect
Dont realize what is out there is what's in the next step
And it's all in their head
We've got all of eternity
The tower of destruction that'll set us all free
Cause in the end we always find that there's another place to be;
physically or mentally.
People walking around with frowns carved into their faces
I wonder if theyll ever look up and see that they've been going places
All along, 
Giving up falling down through the cracks of the ground
They're at fault for all loss that was among their own soul
Oh, its a cold world
As it slowly turns, im watching the clock tick as i feel the room burn
And its funny, that people try to play the game of constant manipulation,
Repeated deification.
Thinking they were born alive, but really,
They were only born to die.
No not everyone lives under the sun these days
A lot of those that fear thy own will fall pale in the shade
Under a dead willow
How we all want the sun because it's here for a reason
We all expect it to invest in the seasons
The government work of treason,
Throwing ropes to pull it down
Making this place so much hotter than it was when underground
I can't stand to be bothered by the burn that it's put on my wrist
From slamming this door shut, we've got to put an end to this
We're destroying what's inside ourselves cause of things on all the shelves
Yet he destroys, and he breaks, so we build
They take the money, and we run it while they kill
Although it's kinda funny that the state depends on pills,
I'll hold the sun and run away from all that's real.

Passing The Lonely Night

(Lyric Contest Entry)


I pretended to be sleeping, ....  through long hours of the night
I could hear your quiet breathing, .... in the early morning light
Empty words we never said,  just the rustle of the bed
I pretended to be sleeping, and hushed my silent weeping
Knowing you were close, beside me,...pretending something, too

Our nights come dark and lonely, 
Nights cold as two hearts grieving
Exhausted love, that cannot sleep
A worn out love that we can't keep
A love that's running out of breath
Is brushing death too soon...

I pretended to be sleeping, but could hear our two hearts beating....
I lie awake with anxious waiting...just to hear your footsteps leaving
A branch against the window glass, is scratching to come in
As if to pry,........the words, "goodbye",..........still waiting to begin....
A love that's running out of air...is breathless in the wind

I pretended to be sleeping, I hear the small clock ticking
The hour hand has swung around, a new day lost before it's found
It has gone too far to turn around
A love that's running out of breath
Is coming to an end.....

I pretended to be sleeping
But, I can't ignore the sunrise
The day arrives, without disguise
I must face it now, and ask it why?
You turn your back, as if to hide
Pretending something too....

Sabbath Morning Rap sequence 1

Learn not too late to halt the hate,
Bound to be ground in the dust of disgust
We're pierced and fierce, fulla rings and things
We're blued and tatooed and God is booed.

Crude dudes are misconstrued
with actions vulgar,vile and lewd.
We're found down ground in sound,
totally tatooed in terrible taste,
in a mindless race for the loudest base.

Hate to dis your myth but God exists,
'Tis a truth deduced by the less obtuse,
You understand He did become man
For His love of us all because of the fall.

He suffered and died being crucified,
He pulled His people from the pains of hell
and rose from the dead He's alive and well,
I tell you no lie He's got no rival,
It's right there written in the holy Bible.

He arose to heaven so to send the Spirit
to His brothers and sisters who wished to hear it,
He said I leave you my Love I leave you my all
but you gotta say yes to heed my call.

Don't follow the world that ain't the place,
You want to be with Me when you finish this race,
Orphans you're not  you have been taught,
I will help you find Me if I'm sought.
                  
                       Amen

Louder Then Words

paper hearts can never foil 
the obvious from happening 
you speak of despair 
like you come 
from a place of happiness 
you fuel me 
like the water liquor burns 
we move 
like the fire of hearts 
young and torn 

after all you're left for dead
you better off coming off your meds
the sweetest thing you said to me
is actions speak louder than words

i'm no longer yours to forgive or forget 
living like cliches 
the secret is to forgive and forget
counting down the days 
the minutes you mark 
i'll be here when the hours are dark 
roaming like children 
screaming of riddles in the park
easy like noah never parked his ark 
gritty like paper hearts 
we never fold 
the sweetest thing i was ever told 
"actions speak louder then words" 

after all you're left for dead
you better off coming off your meds
the sweetest thing you said to me
is actions speak louder than words

i'm no longer yours 
to forgive & forget
i'm no longer yours 
to live with regret

Warped and Twisted

WARPED AND TWISTED

HARSH WORDS, VIOLENT BLOWS
HIDDEN SECRECTS THAT NO ONE KNOWS
EYES ARE OPEN, HANDS ARE FISTED
DEEP INSIDE I’M WARPED
I AM TWISTED

SO MANY TRICKS, SO MANY LIES
TOO MANY WHENS, TOO MANY WHYS
NOBODY IS SPECIAL, NOBODY IS GIFTED
JUST WARPED AND TWISTED

SLEEPING WHILE AWAKE
CHOKING ON MY DREAMS
LISTENING LOUDLY TO
A SILENT SCREAM

CALL ON MY MIND
THE NUMBER IS UNLISTED
LOST IN SOMEONE SO
WARPED, SO TWISTED

DOWN ON MY KNEES
ALIVE BUT DEAD
LOOK AT THE INVISIBLE BLOOD
I HAVE SHED




I’M NOT DEAD
MY MIND JUST HAS DRIFTED
DO NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH
TOO MUCH FROM ME
FOR I AM WARPED AND TWISTED

BURNT OUT, WASTED
TODAY, IS YESTERDAY’S TOMORROW
THE SUN DIED OUT, THE ASHES SIFTED
YET I AM STILL HERE
WARPED AND TWISTED

The Fear

The Aphotic rays reach higher
And shame, shade reigns over all
Lacuna, Apathy is all I feel as I fall into the ashed grave
I'm living, the slowest way to die
Elysia, rapture where are you now

What will I do when the flame is extinguished 
What will I do when I drown in ash
What will I do when they sing my name in funeral dirges 
How can this be all, one short organic vitality
Scares to die, but afraid of a new day

Scared to die, but so afraid of a new day
Will I Ressructe to Paradise, burn in Hell, or lay in Sheol
Is this a there is, one feather, to the dirge
My life so long - my suffering grows
Scared to die, but so afraid of a new day

In all of the ashes, a flame begins
Once again, here I am
Living, the slowest way to die

Queen of Heaven

And then the Props withdraw
And adequate, erect,
The House support itself
And cease to recollect
Emily Dickenson.

Queen of Heaven

Give me faith!
Ground me!
Tell me the sky will not fall in
the earth at my feet will
not give way- pray,
shelter us- mankind and me
from crazy predatory frenzy
Defend us from all destructive forces
Foster love of beauty, altruism-
generosity to our cores; a search
for grander possibilities

Teach us the solemn value of history
Keep us true to form, intuitive
imaginitive, instinctive
Attuned to the importance of
self- limiting responses

Not innocent in self delusion
Not virtuous for virtue's sake
Unique and irreplacable
Never notorious, false hearted
or didactic
No! not the sum of trivial
accumulations
Not the collection left behind,
of usesless irrevelancies;
objects beyond human memory
No! it must be us

Abiding echoes
of breath caught in wonder

Parody to Chris brown's song Dont Judge Me

Why you wanna go there ?
I don’t wanna go there, 
I guess I gotta go there,
 you asked me out on a date,
 then we go to a place that I hate, 
you said the place would be nice,
 but all I get is a sweet tea no ice,
 not even a parfait with granola,
 tal vez él habla española? 
So please don’t ask me, 
and I wont ask you, 
because if you wanna date again, 
then you better let me supersize

Stuck

I'm like a lion
Tryin to be  trained
to behave in a cage, but
I wasnt born to be tame
Full of stress and rage
 Im compressed and chained
Infected with depression
beCause I cant catch a break
Lifes taste is so tart
In pain from my scars
Stained by lame luck
Stuck behind apace car
I strive to write
But all I can type is the space bar
I'm Pervaded with doubt
About to freakout
Quick Someone bail me out
I would sniff my way out
but I got this cyst on my snout
From 6 years of this drought
Im sittin with this could of pout
Stickin to me like jam from a can
like melted candy in your hand
I'M a pantree full of Spam
 A Letter without the stamp
A debtor without a plan
Like chicken on a pan without any Pam,
Damn I'm starting to get pissed
 I got to devise a plan, before I break my fist,
Punching this brick wall, I got the spit but no ball
got the wits with no squall, like a toliet with no stall
 Slippin in a pit fall, Shiz just snow balls
I want to brawl, missed last call
My Stick shift just stalled,
This lawl has no intention at stopin at all
And I'm kicking myself in the balls
like old men walking up and down the halls
so i flop, just like a dust mop
Now i got knots in my food box
The size of king kongs rocks and
Every door has been locked
I try to soar but its all for not

Poetry: For The Words, Are All Around Me

The secret syllables
and words
surround me
in a morning fog
I absorb them through
the places I wonder
ideas I ponder
they flow into my blood
veins
as they spill from my rose
lips
like shameless water
they sweep into me
like the wind behind my bare knees
they whisper into my ears
within the summers breeze
they creep u on me
like a bottle feeling
emerged from being
cloaked deep within
the search for a pen
and paper, feverishly
begins
into the depths of my soul
the intensity
is hard to control
like a wave, the words
tumble over me
overwhelmingly
grainy sands distort
my messages vision
as I struggle to write
how I remembered the piece
would begin
it feels like a rush
of electric
creativity
lightning bolts of
wisdom
jolt through my body
shooting from me
stories of grief, and struggles
things I share to help
others
not to repeat
of loss and love
like a bottled sermon
thrown from above
the words hit me

a few times

you said i was beautiful
and i flew

and rode to mars
in a silver tipped spoon

and when you thought

of a storm pitched sea
and ate raisins 
in a egg shell tree

The next round-Step into the ring

 I hear the bells ring
 "ding ding"
Go ahead and take a swing
it don't mean a thing
'cause I've learned how to stand my own ground
I'm in the middle of the ring
gloves off
ready for the next round.
Don't be fooled into thinking
you can knock me down
'cause you don't know about the strength I've found.
I've been around
seen life
through eyes that saw the hard way
learned how to live it my way
say what I mean, mean what I say.
I pull no punches
trust my intuition and my hunches
so it's o.k take a swing
it don't mean a thing
your opinion is just that to me, doesn't mean jack to me.
I may be small
but I'm packed full of power
once a shy bud now I'm a full blown flower
so go ahead step in the ring
I hear the bells ring 
"ding ding"
go ahead and take a swing
let's see what you bring!

being abnormal

people grow up and live their life
feed their child and the wife
earn the money and enjoy lot
then what happens is they finally die

will you be the same 
to earn name and fame
Or have thought of the other game
to give your life for others who are in pain


do whatever you can and never miss
to gain that happiness and ultimate peace
to help poor and needy  think from heart
so that others happiness will be your lifes part

we are healthy and we are normal 
but should live our life being abnormal
In a sense that u will not  live like others 
but to hold hands of all and make  them brothers.

The Dreamer

Standing I gaze through various windows and doorways.
Serene landscapes within each continuously changing for us.
My body tenses and quivers. My eyes burn and forehead sweats.
Each causes my mind to strain and grasp for thought.
Before me various lights dance and cascade, no music is heard.
The colors and shades dance, causing focus never to be gained.
Emotions burst forth sometimes pain, other times only joy.
Walking, running, falling the paths I choose never cease.
Figures and shapes stand before me no faces ever seen.
No speech or sound is ever heard, yet always understood.
Arms stretched failing to grasp always yearning for an answer.
Confused, my thoughts search eagerly for its very meaning.
Forever knowing that an answer is completely unyielding.
I scream my breath released with wet lips quivering.
I feel shaken and the darkness once again overcomes.
Suddenly I'm startled, my head raised, eyes now wide open.
Realizing the room is empty the dream is gone.

I have a dream

I have a dream
where I'm writing my desires
I see myself writing lyrics for singers
I see us creating hit songs

I see large arenas and concert halls
In my dreams I hear my lyrics in movies
I see known performers singing my songs
I feel these artists giving life to my words

In my dream
I see royalty checks
I see record, music and book publishing deals

In my dream 
I see autograph sessions
I see a millions dollar house
I see new cars in a garage

In my dream
I see myself helping others through my craft

In my dream
I see doors open wide
In my dreams 
I see awards of accomplishment on my shelf

In my dreams 
I see myself paying it forward to help others other than myself!!!
In my dreams 
I see that I have Seized the Day!!!

Always believe in your dreams!!!

Be the Inspiration

Your mind races when you hear that song
The sun glasses go on 
And the volume goes up
Your foot hits the peddle while imagination races for a medal

Maybe its the melody
Or the singer who makes you feel like a winner
Perhaps the words motivate your inner desire
Which pushes you to let lose sets you on fire

Each of us has a trigger
And we want to be that super hero
The kind that everyone looks up to
But to be the inspiration

You gotta be willing to let go of the illusion
To be that speed racer and come up on top
Look in that rear view mirror 
Ask yourself so why you in such a rush

But then your ego says a…. man it ain’t no big deal everything’s cool 
Your heads bobbing to the beat your hair is flying in the wind
Ya got this view of how everything should be 
But deep in your belly ya got this fear and ya shrug it off like everything’s ok

So you continue on your merry way day after day
Then one day maybe five years later you here that voice again
Suddenly all those emotions come rushing back
But this time you say ok I’m ready to listen

And the message is clear so you change the direction
You start to become the inspiration
People start to praise you for your actions
Then one day you meet this young man whom is stuck in his pride

You offer him guidance you tell him the message
He looks up at you and tears fill his eyes
He just kneels down sobbing from all the hurt
You say it’s ok because “Love is the answer”

You're Somebody's Hero

I don't know a Better Name,
But ,"You're Somebody's Hero."
It's not just a game,
And it's always fair.
What are we made of?
Pearl and polished stone?
Or tar and rot?
We  are what we have yearned for.
Have we spent our time studying God,
Or the Father of lies?
Were we being polite,
Or feasting  and drinking of the fat happily?
Are We cursing God when we fall,
Or are we laughing and getting back up?
You see, when God gives us a gift,
It is appreciated by the wise,
And the other only lust and envy the gift.
So, don't tare someone down just because
You don't think that they are pretty,
And you don't think you should show some pity 
Because some people aren't just people,
But are somebody's Hero,
That have saved somebodies soul,
That have gone about saving souls.

the Sunny Day Blues Man

living for the moment
ended life as we knew it 
but i'm just doing whatever
kind of hoping 
for some entertainment 
along the way

a day in the life 
of the sunny day blues man
hands down 
this is the best i ever was
the best i'll ever be
don't you agree

the sunny day blues man
isn't it funny the way news slants
the return of the sunny day blues man
just be happy with what you choose man
Never a better option than a given hand
thank god for the sunny day blues man

hope isn't a measure 
it's just tested time
a clamp of suspense 
when the moments array
an echo of needs 
to balance out 
the ways things seem
desire
is the best you and I 
will ever be
don't you agree

the sunny day blues man
isn't it funny the way news slants
the return of the sunny day blues man
just be happy with what you choose man
Never a better option than a given hand
thank god for the sunny day blues man

at times life seems to cycles 
signals of distress
vanity and cupcakes 
i know, it's a brute mess
but along with the irony 
comes pancakes 
yes, the madness seems to iron me
yet i am still here

the eyes a thinker
life of a fighter
hands of a lighter weight 
unburdened 
when smiles reflected a pinch of hurting
because in punishment
the sunlight just couldn't outreach the curtains
though we take the steps alike
we trespass the worries to vaguely
but it was times like these that made me 
and it's the best i'll ever be

"the things we accept in steps of courage"

Beyond The Sun

Of 2000 years ago Beyond The Sun
There once was a Prophetic Son
With a Mother of Wisdom
The Matriach of Sublime
She shows the way in time
 
There's a locked cage in my heart
And it's tearing me apart
Sophia you hold The Key
Why don't you open if for me
 
Beyond The Sun
A Dove, a Flame (Beyond The Sun)
Regina Sapientia is Here (Beyond The Sun)
 
Beyond The Sun
A Dove, a Flame (Beyond The Sun)
Regina Sapientia is Here (Beyond The Sun)
 
There's a locked cage in my heart
And it's tearing me apart
Sophia you hold The Key
Why don't you open if for me
 
Beyond The Sun
A Dove, a Flame (Beyond The Sun)
Regina Sapientia is Here (Beyond The Sun)

A Dove, a Flame (Beyond The Sun)
Regina Sapientia is Here (Beyond The Sun)

Strange She is

I felt her there
Seems so strange
Lost in memories
Hope maybe fading
By and By
The seas are changing
Seems so jaded


These clouds are greying
This place i be leaving
This life i be changing
Strange she seems to me


Love once there 
Gone for sure
No chance of feeling
Years have gone by
She can't haunt me no more


The clouds are clearing
This place i be leaving
This life i am changing
Strange she is to me


Memories i have
Smiles I'll enjoy
Won't see up close
Her heart is in something great


This sun is shining
This place I'll leave
Never will return
I let her be free
So i can be me
These clouds will not grey for us no more
She's all strange to me for sure

Words In A Jukebox

I speak words, rawly, but 
productively, Poetry Is the 
Passion, I compose, with A 
gleaming heart, that spins the 
souls of others, vibrantly 
shinning, among the rainbows,
Colorfully booming, Tenderly In 
A jukebox, as my ego, grows 
up the beanstalk, like sun-use, 
Wisely owl, among expression to,
its knowledgeable ponder, for those 
who listen, Do you hear, what I hear? 
Do you see, what I see? Do you know, 
what I know? Please take A step-
back, and listen chary to it 
again, As I compose my lyrics, 
down on A sheet of white 
paper, for all the world to, 
see, Hear, and know, because 
We are worthy, in the eyes of
God...

Dedication to all SP "FAM"

The Hardest Thing

Last night we had a quarrel
We went to bed so mad
Each had to get up early
The morning was quite sad
I never meant to say that
I know you didn’t, too
With hopes to reconcile
Just know that I love you

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

I hope tonight we’re civil
We listen and we learn
Together, we’ll get past this
Each others trust, we’ll earn
So, then we can retire
To the bedroom that we share
Lie within each others arms
And show how much we care

Yeah darling…
It couldn’t be more true

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

Each morning when we go to work
A piece of me, it goes with you
I cannot wait to get back home
To do those things we do

That’s why 
Leaving you
Is the hardest thing to do

And when my work’s over
I will come back to you

The Lady Flies from The Ocean to Return a River

    In her slippery salmon swim
    And red streaked Crawdads chute
    Into her eddying pools
    To stare at her from beneath rocks.
    Whitewater rapids challenge men
    To stand against her torrential frame
    And face her, screaming out in pain
    Torturous centuries of ecstatic rain
    To be her solitary stone
    To stand against her all alone
    A true man to soften her cold soul.
    And who’ll be her Reigning Lord
    Echo her insanity
    To lover her shade and slippery slopes
    Crevices’ waiting, sharp inclines.
    Once a current in the sea
    So filled with green and mystery
    To her a man did rarely come
    Then, pulled up by curious shapes
    Like lambs, in white puffs she flew
    And traced her shadow cross the land
    Till the puffs released her soul
    In little flakes, gentle and slow
    For a time entombed in frozen snow.

    There men saw her as a sprite
    Reflected in her cage of white
    Men chased her form of watery light
    In dreams that came hard in the night
    Her body lucid, long and lean
    A cold corpse, frozen to the earth
    Blue hair, bent arm, frozen knee
    The sun took pity, broke the back
    Of the ice block and set her free
    So through high mountains, cliffs
    And rocks she trickled
    In a gathering streams, in rivulets
    Of tears, mouths open
    Her bosomed skin slipped as ice
    Pain built up the rage within
    And sorrow brought it to the light.
    Green – the color of fast and deep
    White – the foam that came in waves
    Along the long and joyous vein
    She spreads her long body
    Knee bent, her heavy breasts pinned
    Blasted, rippled by the wind
    She’s touched only by old earth’s hand
    Its gravity like a naked man
    Basking in her pools
    Her faces and belly ghosting him, a mirror.

    Watch her through the thickening trees
    Her body sliding toward the sea
    A torturous rape, a rapid ride
    For all who’ve hung upon her side
    Hearts pound, as she shrieks and sighs
    With each down stroke a demon dies
    Within the man who’s bourn the pain
    Endured her crushing fingers round
    Who’s felt the pound of her breasts soft
    Been beaten by her to the blood
    And awaits for centuries her cold flood.

Hate

You shroud the truth with petty lies
A trait in you I must despise
What once was
Will never be again…

I trusted you too many times
My hate for you based on your crimes
If you died
I wouldn’t feel the pain…

Hate may be a strong word
But not strong enough for you
You broke me once
You broke me twice
And now I’m strong enough to say we’re through.

You disappoint at every turn
Hurt everyone with no concern
How you live
Is a mystery to me… 

I let you in with open arms
Better to resist your charms
Maybe then
I could have remained free…

Hate may be a strong word
But not strong enough for you
You broke me once
You broke me twice
And now I’m strong enough to say we’re through.

The Crazy Hunter

By: Ali Taha Alnobani

He did not do anything extraordinary
Did not discover the secret of happiness
And surely did not invent the machine that collects rays of the sun in a painting
He sat among his friends proud of his depravities
In an acted way of formalities
***
Now he can boast about his manhood
Like a foolish boy made of wood
"I spent a wonderful time with her
My soul flew with kisses
And my body was trembling
With a very nice relaxing!
She believed me
And when I left her
Her face was yellow
Like lemon
And my eyes were sparking
Like a demon".
***
Hunters have no heart
And crimes are their ribbon
His reverent silent friends were looking at him
"My mother taught me:
"It is not a shame for a man to deceive a woman
Females who give you themselves have no honor"
So I hunt women as if I were a trap"
He laughed loudly and removed his cap
Then he rubbed his mustache
And suddenly screamed
"I'm the king
When I touch my ring
I can swallow an angel".
***
So here in the dark world
We have two sides
Schools for male... And schools for female
Streets for male…and streets for female
Dusk for male… and another for female
And in between
We have crazy hunters
Fond of their depravities

Monsters and me

I create monsters  
Then  I wait  in ages  to hunt me

Monsters  in dreams as  I introduce
Become real  hi t  haunting to me as I  work

They  made  me pay the bill never  on time
Dreams and wishes  garble in  sparkly gluey  neon dark cloud


Than every thought  haunts  as I live by them
It is a kind of monsters hidden in cloudy day in darkest cloud

They have very special kinds a  I introduce from  my birth
One is so kind the other everything about  is greed 
Third one is mirror watching what you have done
Monsters hunts me and fight them in  my  each  day

It Looks Like Love to Me

You smile
You ask
No easy task
To put it into words
I look
And see 
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s that blanket on a winter night
You wrap around me oh so tight
The way you want to make things right
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

You laugh
You say
There’s no other way
To be just who you are
I smile
Happily
Then say, it looks like love …to me

It’s the way you take me in your hold
You never let our love grow old
There’s not one doubt, for me I’m sold
Honey, it just has to be, 
It looks like love…to me

If love was ever one person
Then babe it would you
There is no other word for this
That’s why our love holds true

You look
Then smile
All the while
You never look away
My eyes
They see
It looks like love… to me

Yeah, honey
It looks like love… to me

Your Chariot

in your chariot, you swiftly came
like a leaf gliding on wind
on your chariot, a golden name
that the ages refuse to rescind

in your chariot, you proudly stand
like the gods of Greece
on your chariot, an imprinted hand
grasping the scales of peace

in your chariot, alone you hold
the reins of your fate
on your chariot, a golden mold
of love, anger and hate

LET'S GO SEE

Let's go see
This maybe all we need
Roads wide open
Hearts a racing
This time is now
This dream worth chasing


I hold you close 
You guide my eyes
You made up my heart
Time to let me be


Seems so yesterday
Those wonder years
This place was all I needed
But something lead me astray
Caught in a moment
No chance of changing
Won't rethink all that has happened


I hold you near
You make up my soul
Life is about reliving

I can't take that anger away
I can't make you see
All i will do is make you believe


Let us go see
What is in store
Shed no tears
Because your baby I'll always be


Hold me close and you shall see
How proud i will make you be
Let's just go see how your love will grow

Love

This place im in now Id never imagine I would be, 
Love is so complicating why did it happen to me?
I wish i could rewind to the day you smiled at me...
All this pain on my heart is hurting deeply,Why did love have to love me?
We always find amends when things are off the track,
But right now i think its all wrong, it all hurts, Let me go back.
Back to the way i was before i found love, back to me.....

SHE

She's that kind of shy girl,
she never shows her feelings.

She's pretty, lovely with a perfect smile,
for him she can run for miles.

She never shows, it's not her fault,
maybe he loves her, and maybe not.

I always asked her to follow her heart,
because love was all what she felt.

She's lost between love and fear,
she only wants him to be near.

She kept silent to win a friend, 
till her love will come to an end.

Sometimes

Sometimes I want to believe
In that wonderful truth
That I can only hide myself
Among the words
Among the poems
That are made of sadness
Happiness and mist
Among the poems
Which cherish
The purity and beauty

REST IN PEACE

Rough was the day you left,
Easily you chose your path.
Sorrow swells in my heart.
Tears come to dry.

I told you you will die one day.
Now you are far away.

Peacefully you rest in your grave,
Eagerly I wanted to follow,
And here I'm standing alone;
Certainly I'll be missing you!

Return To Dust

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

I'll See your face again
I swear it
No matter how far away they take you from me
Fading, Going Away, Don't be so afraid
Death is a Dream


The Cross Will Be lighter
Whisper the words
so sacred, so somber

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

A Fallen Angel looms over the lifeless stone
What Happened here must be true
I must live this life without you

Breaking the Silence
She began to Weep
The Epitaph ceasing to know 
We all must Return To Dust

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

After the Casket Falls
After your soul is called
After your final breathe is drawn
I'll meet you again

The solitude is euphoric as an illusional clock
Of argentine fears swallow the last soul
Goodnight black rose of eternity
Goodnight dearest gothic phantom
Tonight The Earth consumes me

Serenade

Like the first dawning 
dew drops
Like the fresh scents
of morning
Like cut grasses in
spring time
Like a flower 
in new bloom

Your beauty enfolds me
Engulfs and abounds me
Completely unveils me
Makes my heart cry for more

Like the depths of your
valleys
Like the gushing of 
geisha's     (hot springs)
Like the turn of the
ocean
Trickling streams 
down the mountains
Like the mists upon 
Snowdon
Gently rise 
Gently fall
 
Guess not often
I tell you
Just how much 
you mean to me
That my life 
would be worthless
Without you to adore
 
Yes, I'm saying
I love you
And I hope you
are listening
For it seems like 
a lifetime
To speak out
surface and soar
 
Like the eagle 
flies on wing
Like the clouds
In the Heavens
Like trees
rustle above
My life trembles
with passion
Let me show
my adoration
My courtship and 
fondness 
My sweetest amore

Incomplete

Through roaming hills, and blistering winds
my spirit lay somewhere between.
Oh someone point him out to me, 
I desire to hear my soul sing

For at first he left, I did not notice
my emotions to mangled in muck
but I feel my heart fall short
and my body just want to give up

I call to him through the wind in the night
but no reply is heard in the breeze.
I shout his name from dawn to dusk
But only a echo replies in the trees

Forgive me! I cry, I desire you now
that my heart is darken and numb.
For I gladly give up this emotionless feast
to live my life wondering the streets
forsaking the world and all of its treats
to live with my spirit as a bum

Aeonia part 1

AEONIA-
   AEONI-
      AEON-

Vestal purity, all men succumb- the Virgin whose eyes stare silver beams- crystallizing his very soul. He,  and all who gaze upon she.

   Aeonia writhes behind fallen lids, unable to awake. Betrayal of her psyche-. Silk whispers upon her sweat soaked skin. 1000 nights have come and gone as she still writhes,  unable to awaken.

   Her **** swallows the evil the world has delighted in - all betrayal, lies and sin.

Dripping from between her great legs are left the dregs of green heat,
jealous heat that slides down and puddles on the floor.

   The vacuousness of her ****  has left no good...
fear, hatred and rage are ****ed inside of her... pounded into her birthing, ever birthing animosities.

   Sludgy sperm of bastards evil- threaten to fertilize her eggs. Gray fetuses passing through her pose the question- "Why?"

   She dares not answer, for to open her mouth would invite flies to lay their maggot eggs upon her very tongue...
Still she cannot- dare not open her eyes...not yet.

   Screams! tortured hyena throes of Thorazine echo in her mind.
   Do Not Open Your Eyes!
   Aeonia- and her aeons!
   Ever lay bare and never to see, never to move.
   Aeonia! Why have the gods punished you? Fair one of the crystalline silver eyes?
    
   Time immemorial, leperous tongue dies piece by piece, inch by inch until nay but a smarted stub exists.
Who hears you anyways? No one to hear your cries whore!
   Whore of all women, shall we call you Eve?
   Cocks of man and gods and kings all rape your syphallic cave-
one by one.
   Whore! You are blamed! Oh Aeonia, for misbegotten deeds by every wife, woman and queen!
   Succubi, WITCH! A potion of cat claws and rat maws you brewed, from Adam to the last man standing, you are to be blamed! For his infidelity, his disease, his shame!

                History made my days ugly
            Touched my pen to wrestle anger
     This bread I inhale repairs my lungs as I get glued on with a smile that makes me meet my maker in person
  Legalize the glue so I can sniff the truth
    Legalize the glue so I can sniff the truth

Love's Lofty Height

Love's Lofty Height
by
Ingrid Showalter Swift

A lofty height 
A soft kiss
sweet butter lips 
and the scruff
O lament at the wall of tears with me ... 
Take not the hand of sweet liberty
O my sweet earnest soul…be still and vacuous as the sea as it glows 
………..it takes no hostage with intent

Be glad as the bee as it goes 
Pollen is its heart’s content
Be wild as the leaves on the trees ripping and dipping 
 flying and soaring and beneath it all 
as snow coated ice field ….be still my beloved love
Know the peace of grass 
of the stone on the side of a hill
feel the movement in the feathers of a hawk as they flicker through the dive of air
Be as the cloud sees the world up and down and in and out it goes and asks not for understanding of all it sees
Be as the crumpled piece of paper with words that might have changed the world 
a ball sitting at the bottom of the ash can with the chewed gum that does not argue that it be taken 
Be as the birth of a fawn in the wilderness asking nothing but to stand for the first time and quiver a new
Be new in you …my beloved 
because you 
having given birth to us... have set me free

FilipiNoypi

Look at your palms, calloused and hard- 
hardships of life ain’t it?
Too many dilemmas
 But still that mocking smile, 
Daring what life can still throw,
Noypi you are, you rock..
Wherever you may roam, do not be afraid, 
of guns or sharp knives, or whatever dark roads maybe…..
 Hey I am pinoy, my guts get me far, my race’s amulet runs thru my veins….

I went to the sea, traversed the world, 
But it is in my heart, what I’ve been searching all along,
There are countless times, I faced danger and death,
But I know the secret on hanging on to life’s edge ,
So many of them say, a charm keeps me safe, 
But they never knew, God is the reason,
Hey I am Pinoy, my guts get me far, to face uncertainty, 
my race’s amulet runs thru my veins…

Can you hear?, the whisper of  your blood, pulsating life, 
So cry out loud my kin, the hymn of your roots….
Hey I am pinoy, my guts get me far, my race’s amulets runs through 
My veins

- This is my English interpretation of Bamboo's local song.

Draconian I

[The Cypress Is In Bloom]
The cypress is in bloom
I see the evil, the efflorescence of decadent doom
Eloigning, with thy clandestines of the Dead September's reign
My belovéd Penelope, abscond from the coven so deep, the glades of misery
We must face her in the grove, for arcany, the path we must take
She's in my mind, vaporously,
Lauding with my, dangers and fears
Lie, with ephermelcy's broken truths
Leading me go Cypress, Marigold
Immortally, willows, forevermore
Forevermore

[To Question; To Know]
My argentine silence, your only condonicy 
Ends with such eath
The Mockingbird in me--died
Resting in one ounce, an abundance of shame
With an infinity of joy
Exiled, by the ones, who give all, names
My breath starves for only more
The façade, the veil, the austerity dims with Aquarianlore 
She falls to her knees, why for?
Celandine she will be
Celandine is she

[Bead]
The lair within, free from their causalities of their sins
Shadowy primroses begin to grow, the season will never end
In there I dream to be like you, violet blue, White Flower of Lisieux,
La Fleur Blanche du Lisieux,
So Celandine are you
Celandine are you

[Draconian]
Draconian--Reach for the shadows within
Draconian--Break from The Fallen's Sin
Draconian--Their Empirical lies, only die
Draconian--Reach The Shadows Within

POETIC PARADISIACAL MOMENT

Involves words as you close your eyes the Word-guide leads you. 
Each spoken or read word is like soothing oil for your tired soul. 
You feel the comfort as well the love as the Word-guide caresses you. 
Beautiful plant life likes never seen before gives your inner-soul total bliss. 
Fragrance like never smelled before opens up your senses as flowers sing. 
Smooth flowing river adding the background beat while you stand at the 
shoreline. 
You feel so at ease because your heart wants this glorious moment to last 
forever. 
Just to walk daily with no worry, no confusions and all other letdowns that creates 
stress. 
Replay this with universal music to lead your mind to that special quiet place 
within you. 
Continue to pray, because the Greatest Creator did promise that for his earthly 
children.

Scarred Tissue

scarred tissue i don't miss you i don't wish you were the better of me i don't care much for surveillance but it tempts me to burn out inside everybody's lying scarred tissue i really miss you i really wish you had got the better of me you see, i need that bad beat sometimes 'cause everybody's fine yeah, everybody's fine that's what on my mind For even Elvis reigning in his castle sometimes lost battles, immortalized forever tell the stories of the glories of mighty Aphrodite the most beautiful sin in existence bright was her smile all while the while evil stirred grinning storm clouds castles in the sky castles in the sky made for you and I grand castles in the sky sometimes re-invent your self just for indulgence stray from the normal path for it was one of a kind but I'm already under influenced sometimes a knowledgeable bright shining star fades away into the darkness shall come back in rebirth I know it sounds tragic but that's what I heard every bird has wings wings to fly away any chosen day into my dismay a beautiful array wings to start a new inner strength attitude because I'm in stride with you on another level soon a game worth winning is the reason we play life can be desperate at times but I find its beauty truly basking in the sunlight of midday so as I wave before a wave washes me to the shore I seek every day has been worth the while for the while stays wildly embedded in uniquely threaded scarred tissue

Nature Of History

In time, days, months to years

Is the failure of relationships
In January to July to December

And the shallow of rivers
In July, August to September

The destruction by earthquakes
In January, February to December

The reshuffle of accidents
In lakes, roads and in air

The manufacture of acids, guns, and robots
In laboratories, industries and employment areas

The color of rainbows
Blue, green, grey

The personality of people
Conceited, gloomy, temperamental

The training of soldiers, students, and also religions
In academy, schools and institutes

The birth of children
Over years and years all over the world

The truth of lies
In homes, schools up to work places

clocks that picture time

these days you barely see
the colors of people as they are 
tomorrow looms 
in places that i can't be

still i wonder will it all fall down 

these days you're either right or wrong
sit back on ease and find rhythm to a song
running on e and i'm almost there
thinking maybe we'll make it
hell, we're almost there

still i wonder will it all fall down

these days it's you or me 
i can picture 
the things you're left to say
winters calling 
and the darkness is sinking this day

still i wonder will it all fall down

these days you're either right or wrong 
calling forgiveness it's either you or me 
tomorrow turns in places that i can't be 
the color's of people you barely see 

"maybe i'll see you when you get there"

borrowing time

days turn nights all over again
the time we wake up is a life begin again
pursuing dreams; fulfilling greed
torturing our mind
coz all we are in here just borrowing time

lonely nights and broken dreams inside
faded faith and memories divide
we cried; we bleed from underneath
we laugh and love from deep within
coz all we are in here just borrowing time

no matter how strong you are
it's always fragile inside
no matter how fast you'd run
you're always one step's behind

days turn nights all over again
the time we wake up is a life begin again
pursuing dreams; fulfilling greed
torturing our mind
coz all we are in here just borrowing time

Power

A man must have a journey Whether far or wide. Temptation, no matter what, Will be by his side. There's always need for power What's the power might be different And the means to get power Always seems to be switching. Obtaining power Doesn't mean complete satisfaction It's only a check on a list Or a temporary distraction That's why some satisfaction Are against the law or is a sin Because Utopia and Euphoria Are just myths that it brings. Being born with power Doesn't guarantee you it's yours, It can be taken away By someone trying to settle a score. You might not have the power to refuse, But you do have the power to choose Whether or not to abuse. Unholy and holy reside within Every human's might Because each day we choose To save or take a life. When power reaches a point When it doesn't know where it is That's the time our minds Get trapped away with it.

Back in Time

Listening to oldies 
Is a flashback through your mind.
Letting the disco, rock and roll, and pop
Take you back to that time
Where life was left on the dance floor
And you had to be “Stayin’ Alive, Stayin’ Alive”.

Dancing on the Moon

I met a kindred soul today;  
dancing on the moon.

Her eyes began to sway with me; 
dancing on the moon.

Her smile chased my cares away; 
dancing on the moon.

I've finally embraced eternity; 
dancing on the moon.

Playing that Ovation

Guitar;
black slick 
acoustic difficulty
for minds that show teeth
grit 
defiant stand
serve as road block

in the way of raw expression
ART
bullheaded you
self made doubter
lover of fail at yir' right hand 
tripping over what's left
notes chords
waiting on deck for launch
beside yir'self with holding back
somewhere
beneath hard crust 
molten lava pops
pours 
and subsequently maneuvers
right through the bullshit
to seep through
porous walls you've built
so get busy playing  that Ovation
and channel some of that pent-up guilt

@ Ryan Emerald, the jerk who belongs in the dirt

ok, heres the scoop
your words
just made me recoop
i realized that you used me
i feel used. 
but you shoudl feel that way too
cause i used you
and your new girl
she made me hurl
she is so ugly
she looks like a cow and a pig combined
and she is useing you
did you buy her a necklace yet?
 perhaps a braclet?
i did not want your money
i did not want your gifts
i wanted you for you, supposedly
because i thought you wanted me
i guess i thought wrong.
so i wrote this song
to tell you how i feel
you make my skin crawl
with your greasy hair
and your ugly face
your freak-ish body odor
and your alcoholic mother
yea, speakin of her
she hit on my mother,
made my mom scared, never went back
same with me. 
and if im such a liar, 
such a cryer, 
then you are gullible.
very, very, very gullible.
you believed every word of my supossed lies.
so the next time you think you can pull that card, think again.
and you are a man-Whore.
very trampy.
the nice little poem of you and your ugly cow
haveing sex
yea, you made that up. 
and i think you are trying to make me jealous. so let me try that too.
when me and you where together,
Brandon Jones was enjoying my body too.
you think you used me?!
you have another thing comeing for you
i have many tales to tell about the rendevous
that Brandon and I shared.
night time romps. 
fun times.
so if you think you can make me upset.
think again.
and also, you look like job of the hut.
and you look like you ate the burger bandit from Mc.Donalds.
you wanna slam me?
you wanna start World War III?
then  you came to the right place honey.
so come one, start some crap
i'll tell you where to go and how to get there.
i can take the rap
so bring it on, you know me well, 
you know that fighting me is not swell
so bring it on
and you will see
when i have the life you wont have, you alcoholic-to-be slob
when i have the american dream, i will rub the white picket fence and 2.5 kids in your cake 
covered face
and show you that i am more of a girl than you will ever have
so have fun with yourlife, 
cause you just got slammed.
so deal with it,
you jerk who belongs in the dirt.
let the war begin.

the day before

drink my poison
make some noise again
spill your thoughts into a song
you're not 
who you say you are

whispers, old lullabies 
washing away at time
night fades into day
as the mornings 
begin the play
yesterday's reruns
trickle into dew
seen it all the day before
tomorrows nothing new

drink my poison
make me love once more
like a flower in the rain
i won't bother
to unlock your door 
it's nothing anymore

sleeping far less hours
then the moments
fading away
lost yourself 
a month ago
stirring in the cold
figured it's time
catching up with age
living by the pages

sunrise the day before
i love you even more
going on to bed right now
i wish you were a sound
images plague my head
i'm glad you're finally found

TIME

“TIME”
Time is life and necessary
It inhales in dribs and drabs
It exhales colossally-
It is gradual and progressive
It is time, he hiccups and talks
He sucks and chews
She crawls and walks
It is time she learns and drives
Time is work
And should be hold tenaciously
For it is shimmering but billowing
When fiddle while Rome burns.
Time is situational and circumstantial
For all the hustle and bustle of life
For it strides with thorns, love and merry
It sinks contemporarily and fashionably.
Time is rendezvous
But stings in a haste
It is merry in a state of trust
And it bites in betrayal
Time is death anyway
For as it beats in seconds and minutes
It magnetizes five-years to fifty-years
Until thou kiss thy mother earth
Moreover, time is everything!

Pink Lip stick

Yellow-Brown skin I see.
From head to toe I wanna greet, 
but at your lips is where I wish we could meet. 
Cause the lipstick you wearing is just so unique. 
You done away with the Red stick cause it was last week, 
and that earth tone color just don't attract me. 
But that Pink lipstick got me weak. Actually got me pondering, wondering, wondering if that's all that's pink?
Wondering is your other pair there? 
Im just asking because Im unaware. 
Im just trying know if its pink everywhere. 
Like your pink lipstick. It got me stuck, so can we lipstick? 
If only for a few seconds lets have a kiss that can take us to the heavens. 
Im saying this but Im lying send me to hell
because I want that first kiss of your pink lips to lead to a down pour of pink drops forming and leaving pink ponds that drench my body and sends me into natural disasters known as pleasure and bliss. 
So I just come out and ask my I have a kiss from your lips painted over from your pink lipstick?

EYE Don't See -Part 4-

My heart is beating with upbeat delight 
You astound me…in every shape and form 
My spirit is dancing with unbreakable might
You surprise me…when you take my hand
And pull me outtah my jail-like dorm

And He dismisses me from my solitude…
My eyes are glistening with bliss… 
And I’m far from my demise… 
Only to find that there’s no need to feel helpless

Why do you spoil me rotten with your fatherly affection?

Just protect me from any harm 
Let me make my own decisions…
To see the results in the long run 

You prize me as if I’m cherished like your carefree child
You don’t understand – I’m TOO foolish and wild
I haven’t even reached to full maturity 
But how eye hope to see myself grow and be set free
From the world’s mayhem
Is there a solution to this problem?

And I’m left with no answer…
My eyes are eager to see…another bright day 
And the night is coming to haunt me… 
I find myself slowly disappearing from sight…
When will God give me a purpose to fight? 
When will He feed me His awesome might? 

Just support me…especially during my downfalls
Please answer my calls!

And I’m left to venture off into His path…

Eye can’t escape my terrible nightmares 
Consider my calls of acceptance…my grief weighs a ton
Let me pour forth my tears – 
Do me a favor and cast away my fears
Steer me away from disorder and confusion

Eye can see you’re making great progress
You’re heading towards a brighter, superb future…

My eyes 
No longer witness oblivion 
My eyes
Looks beyond the earthly pain…
bEyOnD the affliction 

I spot a rope in the distance. . . . . 

Push aside the waves…and let me
Grab it this instant!
God feeds me His love…and treats me
Like a newborn infant!

Eye see my Father with brand-new eyes  
I feel rare content
And I feel hardly any resentment

Eye 
cherish 
that 
REMARKABLE 
moment

Visions of the Night

Good dreams, sweet dreams
Visions filled with wonder—
Flowing gently,
While we deeply slumber;
They take us far away
While we take rest from the day,
So make sure you close your eyes
And close them tight;
So you can see the visions of the night.

Moonlight, soft light,
Glowing through the windows,
Shadows dancing 
Softly on their tiptoes—
They pass the night away
In a nocturnal ballet
While the stars shine in a blazing silver-white;
How beautiful, these visions of the night!

Should we long for the coming of the setting sun,
Simply because it heralds the day's end;
Is it wrong if we want the moon to rise—
Just so that, we can stop and close our eyes?

Owls hooting, counting off the minutes,
Crickets chirping, mini violinists;
They set music for the stage
As the world turns a new page
And the lonely moon observes from her great height;
She's watching all these visions of the night.

I like Mr Leonard

I like Mr Leonard for having the courage to say that he doesn’t know. For asking the questions and getting some answers, though some questions might have been wrong. I like Mr Leonard for taking us places, down by the river, up Tower of Song. For showing us people who may be half crazy, at least in the eyes of this world. I like Mr Leonard for his Hallelujahs and asking us to sing along. For trying to get closer to our creator, to feel that we aren’t alone. I like Mr Leonard. What Songwriter or writers Inspire you?

Girl, did ya ever find a guy and wonder
Why’s he seem more than a friend?
He takes you over and under
A starry night outside your bed
Can it be he wants to last?
He cancels dates just way too fast
The tension’s drawn it’s hard to see
The things to be that I can feel

Fall

 Fall is my favorite time of year.
 I just love when you ride in the country and see all the pretty colors of leaves on the trees.
 See the kids having lots of fun jumping up and down as the autumn colors fall to the ground.

 The air is so crisp and clean and you feel alive.
 The wind blowing through the trees is so nice to hear.
 Children everywhere running and jumping with such a cheer.

  Fall brings out the child in us all.
  Not too far behind is the holiday season
  we all look forward to.
  Bright lights, decorations, toys and all,
  But nothing could come close then watching
  the fist snowflake fall.

Can it

Why do I chase the atom?
when the universe has always been mine.
Can love evolve from red giant
into a galaxy?
Dust and stone
become skin and bone,
born; fall and rise again.


I love the black holes
of your eyes
for they radiate
much more light 
than they could ever take.
White hot coals made to rake
caked surface of my lungs.


How I long to see your breath
steam up the silence in my soul.
Droplets, turn into rapids
and rush my question away.
I tripped; stumbling
my spirit crumbling.
Hold; release those fingers.


Strength born of sugar
does not last, and it feeds fear
I need complex and organic
Can rotten become fresh?
Carry the inner babe
Cain and brother Abe.
Save: heal the tether.

"Pa da pa pa paaa!!!"

the Emperor of Reflections

lost in the war 
searching for
flowers and pollen
across from hell
with a pen and a pad

i hope life is 
as sweet to you 
as your mirror is

playing piano after the war
a melody sewn with scars
in the mist of our journey
we became who we are

from stories of elders 
keys are like feathers
something to sooth your tears
when they become drops of leather

i hope life is 
as sweet to you 
as your mirror is

when time is awake 
how do you wait
my ballad of war 
for all those
who have wronged me

"i don't need your hell"

Thoughts of A Song Writer

From my thoughts on the paper in which it lies, 
My everlasting passion is inked as it dries.
The way I feel inside, you might want to spy,
But if you pry, how will my lyrics surprise?
A song for thought will only leave a thought.
May sound difficult, but that’s just how I talk.
I was lost, but I found me.
Dreaming and believing that writing was my key.
The way it flows and the way that it goes pumps me to speak
the very thoughts that many minds chose to keep.
Many rocks I’ve kicked and many decisions I’ve made.
Any wrongs I take the blame.
Tic-tac-toe is only a game.
I plagiarize your eyes with the notes that I’ve taken,
A high note here and a low note there-
You’d swear I’m in your head when my song hits your ear.
Pain recognizes pain
And I’ve have my share of bandages.
 My vibes from life heals the permanent damages.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
Reaches farther beyond the beat,
Over the lyrics on the sheet,
Not only is it about the speech,
 But more of what the message seeks.
True enough a theme is touched and a heart is rushed.
With the mind-throbbing picture disappearing 
Through the ink of my pen and revealed through your lens,
You can’t hear me, but do you feel me?
I cherish my talent and where it could possibly sweep me.
My doubts and my worries are beneath me.
I love for brighter days and pray for more things to pave.
Call my life my number because its infinite.
Thoughts of a Songwriter,
My mentality drips it.

Dont Hide

Don’t hide
I know you are flawed
I know…
You hide behind the imperfections
Of your very soul
Wanting the world to only see
The beauty of your face
The glimmer in your eyes
You carry yourself with grace
Beautiful in every way
Suave
Everyone in awe
As you stand tall
Confident
Your outer beauty
A cover
A shelter in which you hide
What lies inside
But I see
I see it all
Oh baby, don’t hide

Knowing your imperfection
Just makes me love you more
Your weaknesses
Your needs
You fears of being hurt
Again
Anxiety
Having to be the man
That is made of steel
Not allowed to feel
To weep
To believe
To dream
Having to provide
Strength
Stability
When you just need to be vulnerable
A child
Don’t hide

I’m here
Shhhh……I’m H e r e
Come, let me caress you
Embrace you
Put your head on my lap
Let me sooth the troubles away
As my fingers play through your hair
And my arm rests on your chest
Feeling the rise and fall of your dreams
The beating of your heart
Messaging your need
To be cared for
To be freed
Don’t hide

Let it all out
Let it go
All that binds you
Let it all show
I can only love you more
When you show your need
For me…
I’m here...
Let my lips find yours
Let me kiss away your pain
Bathe your wounds
With the oitment of my love
Let me be your strength
Listen to me....
Obey
I want to find you
To move you
Command you
Lead you where you must go
Give me control
Let it all go…
Be weak in my arms
For there you’ll find comfort
I will pacify
Let me rock you
Hush now
Hush…
Listen to my song
My lullaby
Don’t hide

When you sleep away the pain
Here on my breast
You will awaken…refreshed
In control
You will seek me
I will be here
Waiting to be found
Ready to be the play thing 
That you need
The toy you had to give up
To become a man

Play with me
I will not hide…
I will let you come
Inside…

Eisteddfod of Wales

One of the cultures of Wales
is the eisteddfod* where 
people of all lands sing and dance
So many  countries try to get to
Llangollen travelling many days 
just to perform their dance, song or verse
Dressed in national dress of many hues
making it a colourful artistic event

The crowning of the Bard 
Is one of the ceremonies
At the eisteddfod in Llangollen
to the winner of the poem
written in free verse. Whoever wins 
is presented with a newly designed crown 
A trumpet sounds, prayer chanted
Nom de plume read all is revealed

12 days of xmas

Just 12 days to Christmas
So much hope in the air
And a chilling in my tummy
With 11 days to go
My B.P is now high
And where do I get some money
Now going to the bank
To check out what is left
Only just to leave there empty
Now where are my guys?
I cannot understand
8 are just nowhere
7 went to marriage
6 are now studying
5 raaan awayyyy
4 hanged my calls
3 washing clothes
2 went to club
And 1 told me he’s not free

Jill Scott

"Love rain down on me..."
she bellows sweetly
I drink her soul through
the sounds
Letting me into her universe
dripping with love, food, imagery
a beautiful symphony of words
"Slowly, surely, I walked away from..."
the thought of turning my  cd off
Jazz seeping through my pores 
melting me like chocolate in hand
'I understand what you sayin' girl!!!'
Moving feet with every beat
"Love rain down on me..."


Author's Note: Some of the words in this piece are from actual songs. Jill Scott 
has been a tremendous influence in my poetry. Her music and words are 
constant companions. Much respect to her.

SET UP

Set up, high up
Where the clouds starts the race
Reaching,  calls for grace
Not knownly, you stand a chance

Set up, high up
Stands way above norms
Calling unto non but God
Dredged fully in thy good
For a course called Gold

Set up, high up
A dream unknown to these eyes
Light in tunnel dark
Fight to tunnel bright
True success, now you know

Set up, high up
Morals beyond Saints
Emitting gliming virtues
Yearned by all

Set up, high up
Up high
A realm of immortality
Not carnal but in deed
Known to generations

Set up 
To ride high, up high.

The Queen Of All Hearts

Every love begins with a simple story.
A dreamy fairy tale, a mutual playing of cards.
A hundred silent kisses thousands of miles apart led us into victory.
A batch of red-painted roses, hold them close to hide these exsposed battle scars.
Your silver hair shines out to me like an irradiating, forbidden sun.
Eyes black as night, and in your glory a majestic silhouette.
Broken hands long to tell the tale of how love had begun.
Posing hours for the precious portrait.
The pen is in your hands now,
Your turn to express your point of view.
These cards have two sides to bestow.
In this game assumptions of right and wrong are thrown askew,
So, play your Queen of Hearts.
The pen is in your hands now.
From these ashes of war we make anew.
Before the court the demons will show.
You are the Queen of my heart.
Down you fell, consumed in your passion.
Againts the authorities of the kingdom, we fight.
Darkness is the in-between of your faction.
Enslaved teenage years under the guidance of a false light.
The time has almost come, a time-bomb for the corrupt.
The final order of their plague.
Every story has an end, a volcano waiting to erupt.
"Pen and paper once again calls you." Creativity begs.
The pen is in your hands now,
Your turn to express your point of view.
These cards have two sides to bestow.
In this game assumptions of right and wrong are thrown askew,
So, play your Queen of Hearts.
The pen is in your hands now.
From these ashes of war we make anew.
Before the court the demons will show.
You are the Queen of my heart.
We laughed, we cried.
Together we sang, together we fought.
Every wrong-doing we forgot.
Though love cannot cast out every lie.
Even with all the bliss surrounding me this distant relation between us never failed to be my internal tormentor.
The door to paradise closed on us as Time carelessly laid dormant.
You are the Queen of my heart.
Revealed behind your Chesire smile was the silent kiss of a dementor.
My soul, driven to insanity, writhes in torment.
YOU ARE THE QUEEN OF ALL HEARTS!
IN THE THRONE ROOM THE CROWN WILL FALL!
WHAT WAS ONCE RED AND WHITE WILL WITHER BEAUTIFULLY!
The pen is in your hands now,
Your turn to express your point of view.
These cards have two sides to bestow.
In this game assumptions of right and wrong are thrown askew,
So, play your Queen of Hearts.
The pen is in your hands now.
From these ashes of war we make anew.
Before the court the demons will show.
You are the Queen of my heart.

Music

Music, music, and more music 
Is one of my loves
I sing, I dance, I write lyrics,
It’s one of my gifts that was given to me 
From above

I don’t take credit for my gifts
They’re to be shared like 
Airlifts

A safe, smooth ride as we share this journey
Together
Lyrics, melodies and beats
What could be better?

Jazz, R&B, Country, Classic, Rock, 
Popular artist an unheard of artist

I just need to hear a beautiful voice and well
Played music
Those are the things I trust

Play on players
Sing on singers

Enlightening the darkness
You are an apple to my--

Eye is grieving...losing sight
Of Your glory...I feel lost
You are the lake - sparkling with
Delight and Luck! Bring us home!
Grow like a morning glory
In the autumn time, You thrive
You are valuable to my--

Eye is twinkling...praying for 
Insight...yearning for Your sight
You are the hills - guiding my
Mind is longing for your mirth--
Restoring peace to my verse,
Sprouting forth grace and freedom
You are the train tracks, bearing--

My train of thought...making my
Steel spirit connect with Yours
You are the valley - between
The mountains guarding us all,
Building strength to fragile bones,
Welcoming a stream of hope
You are my map - lending me

YOUR helping hand I would take
Now, I could take Your challenge
You are like a maze filled with
Mysteries conceal the truth;
I fight with all of my might
And I BEG for Your mercy
To mend my once blissful dreams!

How I long for Your mercy...

imma microphone killa gorilla, ballistic

you can try to come and get with me but only if your mystic

we puff bowls as we spew coals

hot no ashy words, catcha with a hip-hop curse

i spit one sick verse n you come down with the flu

don't wanna mess with none, ill leave you dead from the barrel of my tongue

to sense

energy claims through 

veins jolt,
ridges on skin construct 

my canvas gravitates thoughts,
	thoughts are 
always silent,
whispers never leak 

my canvas is an angel
swooping to endure 

ears stay alert 
scanning all vibrations. 
 Hands steady 
mind always
clinging 
	

searching,judging
 	innate reasoning

my canvas is sensitive,
collecting all flying
motion
	
my canvas is never blank
sometimes meshing
sometimes clashing

I bleed energy,
although absorb enough to sustain.

Deep Colors of Night


Your song, A Beautiful Child, touched my heart long ago, inspired to love beauty I could never hold, inspired to love beauty from afar. I am the sleepless child who grew tall enough to reach a star. You sang of feelings that remain After the Glitter Fades, and I listened to the sound. Late at night, I dreamed I was Rhiannon, visions kept to myself of a bird in flight, a night bird taken by the wind. Unforgettable songs of love and joy, sorrow and pain, wash over me like Silver Springs, Violet and Blue. The songs from your Book of Miracles lift me on a White-Winged Dove. Feelings of freedom soar in my soul. The higher I fly, the more fragile love becomes, but the heart is strong when we sing. Resilient, I find the courage to carry on, triumph over trials, leather compliments lace. Your voice rings clear like a bell in the still of night. You ask the mirror in the sky, what is love? Bolder with age, I seek to find my own answers. The Gypsy in my soul searches for more. Sometimes, I find my own reflection and a brazen heart. Sometimes, I find an innocent child, shy and unassuming. All of life is lyrics set to music. In the deep colors of night, I hear your voice. for What Songwriter or writers Inspire you????

How do you explain love to someone who has never felt it

So you tell me to explain love,
To someone who has never felt it.
It is like explaining music to the ones who can’t hear,
Which is more than you can ever bear,
It is like explaining the sun to the ones who can’t see,
Which is more than you can ever believe,
So with this I can explain love
To someone who has never felt it.
Though the blind can never see, it doesn’t mean they can never know,
Though the deaf can never hear, it doesn’t mean they can never undergo,
The sound of life, the light of our days, love is the connection found in every display,
Through the smiles and never ending thoughts,
Through the gifts of giving, and the things that can’t be bought,
Love is the action, and the reason behind
The question and even the answer combined.
So you tell me to explain love
To someone who has never felt it…..

short stories she would sing

if February don't end soon
heart shaped people make me sick
if February doesn't end soon
i've got nothing your smile can fix

twenty eight days
twenty eight days without your son
and i would've cursed you once more
i would've left you for more
you never forced me through your door
but i would've left for more

from you to me
this was my gift to you 
tell me nice things
yes i want to hear you sing
if you're at all here for me
tell me what i say just isn't true

tell February goodbye
heart shaped people leave me ill
tell February goodbye
don't forget the love you kill

fourteen nights into this day
fourteen days without you at night
i don't want to see twenty eight 
without you by my side
i couldn't leave you for more 
outside your door
i couldn't leave you for more

have u ever really been loved before
have you ever admired the life you lose 
what time will you be in tonight
i won't wait up for you 
things just may change

journaled into Hip-Hop

dear journal:

hip hop to me is a DREAM WITH A JOURNAL,

a journal with written poems about yourself,

about your health, or maybe about how you need help,

think of it as an autobiography,

written from your life's history,

a journal with misery hidden behind each page,

sadness that might lead up to madness with a slight rage,

a journal about your best or maybe even your worst day,

but most of all a journal that says what you want it to say.

Been Blessed

Will I have been standing on the sidelines, watching everyone go after their goals. I been missing out on the finer things that life has to offer. Seeing you  there reminds me of brighter days. Hearing your laughter, reminds me of the day my dreams all changed.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, wouldn’t change it for the world. Nothing sweeter than you. You’re that shining star, the beacon at sea. I thank the good lord for giving me you, nothing can change the love I have for you.

Will I have been standing on the sidelines, watching everyone have their fun. Now its later, you can see them down an out.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with having you as a daughter. You lifted my heart higher, each day I see you. You’re that shining star, the beacon at sea.

If I was a sailor, I would hurry home to you. Can’t get enough of that laughter, don’t like seeing a frown on your face.

Will I been standing on the sidelines, watching everyone reach to the stars. When I have one right here. Yes, I been standing on the sidelines.

I look at this world, and nothing can change my mind. There be trouble on the horizon, terrible times ahead. People getting hurt, always sad an blue. I put them in prayer as with everyone.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with writing these words. A pure melody, straight an narrow, they are flowing like a stream. Nine in the morning, an everything is going to be alright.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with this life. Wouldn’t to change it, wouldn’t to lose it. I would love to share, so here I sit writing these words.

	Oh, I got a melody running through my head, as I write these words. Sounding like country, maybe its an oldie. But none the less, its pure straight from the heart.

	Flowing like a river, steady as a stream. Let it span out there, like the clouds in the sky. Showing everyone in the world, that I got this love for them. My heart is being true, it is solid. This thing is flowing like a river, steady as a stream. Nothing rocky bout this love of mine.

	‘Cause, I been blessed, with having a daughter - who is just like you…

‘Cause, I been blessed.
‘Cause, I been blessed..
‘Cause, I been blessed…

To My Wife Joyce Standeford

    My mind's a naturalistic blur;
    She is a hazy green image
    pressed up against the lens
    Our hands press against each other
    only separated by the glass;
    her body is in the shape of crucifixion
    tired arms sagging, feet clinched
    But she sprung from a garden
    once clothed in leaves and life;
    I will die with her, a green tree.

    My Joy, sweet, true,
    Greenish in petals, nature's favorite hue
    You've reached the hill-tops, and
    The sun's yellow flame
    Is now a streak of red, racing past us
    To the land of the dead
    And one day we will meet it there.

    Day unfolds Joy's velvet face;
    She yawns, stretches her
    Round slight jaw at the yellow
    sky. I die for her; she dies too.
    Her desire is for flesh foods;
    Her groans consume my logic; fire
    Clothes her nakedness, her womb
    She gasps for breath and wants
    To drink the sadness of men.

    My Joy, sweet, true,
    Your body's green, tears blue
    Body bowed, droplets of dew
    Do all but taste your sweetness
    And look how sorrowful you shine
    Spinning your petals
    To turn water into wine
    How proud you are of what only the sun
    Has done; I poke gently your stretched skin,
    Feel the strained tenuous echo
    Of strings I've played within
    Wrapped in your body
    I feel enraptured now as then.

    I die for her and she dies too.
    Her heat gasps with the warmth
    Of glowing coals within her, fiery;
    I quit my desire, strangle myself
    With my own bone, cut short
    To calm the bursting blood; red-faced,
    The strength within me starts to bud
    So I am young once more and willing
    To be dumb again in love.

    My Joy, sweet, tenuous,
    I once could play you soft and timorous
    Tears swashing green upon your skin
    Our morning dew did know no sin.
    But dusk falls rapidly upon us
    Skin once beautiful now onerous
    Wrinkles us in shame, still honor finds us
    In the dirges that remind me
    Of the life that's lost behind us.

    My Joy, sweet, tender, kind
    How proud and sorrowful you shine
    I must carry you within
    Buried bodies know no sin;
    You are beautiful and bright
    Burn your brightest here tonight
    And as dusk begins to call
    Let us here upon it fall

    Our closely sewn shadows touch silk, the cloth of our doom
    And the curtains of death do shroud us in eternity's womb.

My Blue Ocean Tides

In the stillness of the blue ocean tides
As the water sweeps on the sea rides
I feel you are with me; holding my hands,
Walking slowly along the cold wet sands,
Knowing that one day we shall meet.
In a silence of the early dawns greet
There is only few seagulls cry reside,
Out in the ocean, watch the boat slide,
Somewhere, west winds touch the sunset,
Before the twilight, you will come to rest,
With tears of gladness, in your blue eye
You watch the fish, whispering good bye
Where is my darling, please do not hide,
I have waited so long, to be by your side!

Sugar Sick Sweet Lullabies

I had this dream last night and it was perfect 
It was everything I wanted my life to seem
So when I opened my eyes to this bright sunlight
I realized some things weren't the way that they should be

I put my feet into my shoes, which are old and dusty and 
I don't remember when they were ever clean
I ran around my town asking people for my purpose
And none of their answers seemed to fit alright

Come keep me at bay
Cause the world's spitting us all out one by one
And we've all sinned enough to know that we're gonna die someday

I've tried to be myself but I'm running low on health
To fight all those who tell me to be a certain way
Though I don't cry out my eyes every time that a stitch undoes itself
Cause nobody's gonna save you when can save yourself, darling

Even at a quarter after noon mothers are singing their babies 
Sugar sick sweet lullabies that I know all too well
Haven't you ever noticed the way that their voices crack 
When the child forgets the words and the tune stays with them alone?

Come keep me at bay
Cause the world's spitting us all out one by one
And we've all sinned enough to know that we're gonna die someday

Raqs Sharqi - Belly Dancing

I still remember
First time I saw her
Dark eyes like embers
Glowing like fires

Music pulsating
Waist undulating
Hip belt girating
Gold coins cascading

Egyptian Dancer
Sultry entrancer
Fanning the fires
Of our desires

Her bedlah whirling
Her veils unfurling
Gracefully twirling
The whole room swirling.

Egyptian Dancer
Sultry entrancer
Fanning the fires

Weeding The Moonscape Of My Back Garden

Weeding the
moonscape of my back
garden,
Truly, it's a big
deal.
Weeding the
moonscape of my back
garden,
My nerves shredding:
The concrete weeds,
I steal
myself for this task
Herculean,
I've delayed, I
admit, for cosmic
eons.

Bravely, finally, I
resolved and booked
one week's annual
leave -
To prepare, to
recover,
From this task that
may take up to two
full-blooded
man-hours!

I'm impelled to
enquire,
Must I find the
power
to take on the
abysmal brat of
flowers?
Fetch me a flask of
sports energy drink,
Complex sugar, I
think, my devotional
shrink.

You see,
I write poetry, so
must I also do
things?
Must I really stand
alone on that flat
dune of grey,
Pockmarked with such
monstrous green
swaying?
The weeds, they are
almost thirty
centimetres, and
grimly rising!
I stare at them from
the window, I'm not
really crying.
Wouldn't you rather
I just wrote this
poem?
How many fresh dead
poets does the world
need?
I'd like to be a
living tragic poet,
not one that weeds!
(That's too tragic,
even for me).

And, look over
there! See!
I might get bitten
by that bumblebee!
And I sneeze like a
banshee when near
trees;
Sometimes three
sneezed sneezes I
issue near weeds.
Yes, banshees do
sneeze.

Weeds are angry
wannabe baby trees,
I'm feeling quite
I'll already,
So ill, I've just
spelt it I'll.
Now that's I'll,
Sorry, ill.
Where's my quill?
I need to scroll the
interweb,
Order some pills -
Those ones,
Exported from the
moon, made in
Hy-Brasil;
Those especial
potions you don't
require an ignoring
doctor to see,
I must have illegal
anxiety.
I'm a poet, it's my
job, silly!
And -
I. Don't. Do.
Wrestling. Weeds.

Yet, here I stand on
the precipice,
There they sway
taunting me,
The emerald streaked
posse of thorny
triffid pisse.

Well, here goes -
One small step for
man, maybe,
But one giant leap
for a poet such as
this..

humorous poetry just

Hesitation

A combination of feelings for one single person
A loving, guiding muse 
Supporting a mythical image of life.
Brazen double standards
Found upon support of one another.
Forbidden passions understood
Embracing the occasion
As enveloped upon
An unexpected smile!

Unread Questions

I want to be brave
I can't trail on...when you're gone (2)
Why are you gone?

Hey, I can't save...you from the sorrow - I can save you from the grave
Do you want me to grieve for you?
I can't hold on...when I have no hope - we must wait till the dawn
Where are they going?
Where have they gone? 
Why is this frustration growing? ooh...
Why’s the wind whispering in my ears?
How could I face my fears?

(ooh ooh) 
Do you want to be brave?
Do I have the ability to be brave?
You’re fighting back the tears…
I’m bottling up the fears
Why?
Why do you want this love to end up in the grave?
You’re regretting everything…
Why are you hard on yourself? 
I’m trying to forget that one thing…
Is it my fault your acting so strange?
Is it my fault that we have the problems spreading like cancer? 
Is it Satan's fault?
(Oooh… oooh…)

I want to be happy
Why aren't you happy?
I can’t feel my feet…when I feel so incomplete… (2)
Why do I feel this horrid feeling?
Hey now – I can’t hold you all throughout the night…I can’t set you free
I have my insecurities…I sometimes hope you’re doing great…it’s a treat
To finally know where you’re going…
But I still store up unanswered questions
They pass my train of thought
And then I fight it all away, but all for naught
What's the meaning of life?

I don't have the answers...
Do I search for clues?

The wind leaves my heart to beat… it’s still blowing…
Why’s your voice ringing in my head?
How could I go to bed?    

These questions
Are left on your desk like debt
Pay attention!! 
Are you answering my questions yet?

You're reply is naught......................
....................
............. 




Where have you gone now?

or to shake your rump? 
  
Not me, I'm just over

It's safe to assume you've

Well, I'm deaf, so 
have a field day. 
  
My harem is full, sorry. 
Maybe I could use you at the mortuary.

Sweet Bird

Sweet bird, sweet bird
   With wing so wide
Fly the night
   To distant tide

Let your weary heart soar high
   On breezes meant to glide
No birds of prey disguise the day
   Bring your wings to me, this way

You pass through darkened rainbows near
   On the very edge of fear

Oh, how the winds do blow
   Their course unknown to you
But let your aching wings bring height
   Above the storm tonight

Oh. let the sun shine bright
   Amid tomorrow light
On wings so bold of dreams of old
   A love that's past that so I hold

Sweet bird, sweet bird

pleasured in the rain
but with in these memories

where would that leave me
tomorrow evening
i'm just a drifter 
living the night by shame

death is a writers angst
the older you get 
the less you care 
to be monitored by it

happy new year, baby
this here is my last song
may god bless you 
and keep you strong

if i told you fortune sleeps
where we lay
would you change your mind 
darling
lie with me and my prayers

life is running vastly on its way
feels i'm like we're dying everday
death warrants me forbidden
living lost in tatters unforgiven

kiss me lonely and goodbye
this world may not end 
but you and i 
we're finished baby
you see i got this fever 
running through me 
not color efficient 
but you're paleness 
feeds my suspicion 
so bye bye pretty girl
you're not the only woman

A letter

I’m writing a letter to you.
It’s in a maze. Like me.
Surely you’ve seen the Perseids.
Above the sea.
It’s the same with the words,
which I’m writing or have written. 
I don’t remember.
And they are always another.
Not those ones which I’d like to say.
Or I’ve said?
I don’t remember.
I’ve abandoned the thought
like a traveler who is walking
to a harbor.
The ships depart there. 
Further and further.
Further … 
May I see you,
how you’re walking along the little cobble 
street,
which I haven’t passed in,
to meet you and to tell you
the love is one.
I don’t remember if I said this to you.
In fact, I don’t know if it’s where
one should pass through to somewhere.
I don’t know if you’ve seen
The Perseids and the sea.
I don’t remember. 
If I write anything else
but one –
one.
I don’t remember.

PRAY, WHERE CAN WISDOM BE FOUND

The price of wisdom is beyond rubies
Coral and jasper are not worthy of mention
It cannot be bought with the finest gold
Nor can its price be weighed out in silver	
There is a mine for silver
And a place where gold is refined
But wisdom is found in fearing the Lord
And to shun evil is understanding
For the LORD gives wisdom
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding

For You and the Embers


The embers burn like gold and red dreams in my bed
I feel them in the fall after summer has taken their lives
Smooth and crisp at the same time waiting for the fire to bring them wings
And dance upon the harvest moon beams of joy and forgiveness
It is a time of cold beginnings and losses never to be regained
We marched across the steppes into the land of spiders and boys
Little girls watch from afar never understanding the enchantment of the fire
It is for young men to make there winter beds and slip into cool streams
Float on a full moon night
Icy
Dark
Incriminating 
Merciless
Down to the bottom of the Miller’s creek where the demons wait in satin 
Smooth as time and as old as the four winds.
We cannot wait to see their tongues forked in the wind
Whispering out unto the sea.  Entrancing dragons of old that sailed on the ships of the Norse.
Come into my bed.  Breathe the danger of my musk.  It will bring you back to the bars of Constantinople and we will smoke the opium of yellow men.
And in that smoke we will rise up and understand the fall of the Romans and the rise of the Muslim’s.  For ours are not the dreams of great men.
They are the dreams of children playing with boats on a pond.  To shallow to drown to dumb to live.  
I give it all for you.
For you I burn the embers.

WILL NEVER WALK ALONE-bluegrass

VERSE ONE:
Glory to the highest,the angel choir sings with glee.
For the King of Kings has saved my soul, he has set me free.
I have overcome the battle and I will join the jubilee.
For the mighty King of Glory,Died on the cross, for you and me.

CHORUS:
Come join the angel choir, sing with jubilee.
Come raise your hands and praise the Father.
He died on the cross for you and me.
We will join the choir together. up in heaven we will sing.
We will stand by the angels and sing hallehujah over there.
For on the cross it was our sin ,he took upon himself to bare.

VERSE:
Glory in the highest, sing infront of the Savior's throne.
Gather with the glorious angelband,Jesus took our sins for his own.
Up in heaven a mansion is waiting, for us to call our home.
All we have to do is claim him and our soul will never walk alone.

Experiences Freestyle

Love's a many joys and pains; A wild ride no matter how you take them reigns. In vain we try our best at evading the lanes, but you gonna get wet if you stay in the rain. And you can press reset once you reach that place where the hurt in your chest starts to fade and be replaced with the fact that the wackness can be faced; laughed and left, not mad, no regrets. See it might take a little second, trust I've been there before. Disappointed in the person you gave too much credit. You aint a fool for gettin fooled, that's what foul folks do, but you a fool if you aint wise enough you debt it. See it's hard out here slim pickings on the regular; Fallin for charisma lookin past character. But when it's all said and done, better aim my style. I'll let karma do it's thing and laugh last.

i think that what makes a dream alive

it's harder to breathe
when you keep on waiting on your dream
but it's easier to live
when you believe in your dream

dare to be different
dare to be the unusual
dare to believe the unbelievable

when your nights are cold...just dream
when your heart's breaking...just dream

And I`m willing to go the distance
And I want to bring back good memories...

You`re safe and you`re in a safe place

But GIVE ME some space
Sometimes, I wake up...feeling so distressed
But GIVE ME your sweet grace
And we'll beat the race...and this pain we share will not be addressed

I don't want to be unsure - am I the one losing the race?
And I'm chilling in this heavenly place
And I need to trade you my apologies…
I don’t want to waste your time
You’re absolutely safe…as long as you keep pace

ARMOR OF GOODNESS- a song of victory

VERSE ONE :
You are my rock Lord, you are my shield.
When strongholds are defenseless,
I will never give Lord, I will never yield.
When burdens come crashing down upon me tonight,
I'll run to my Savior's side.
He'll cover me quickly, with his armour of goodness and light.

CHORUS:
You are my rock Lord, with you I can stand.
When the burdens are too heavy, I'll grab unto your hand.
When the trials of life start to make me fall.
I'll run to your armour of goodness, so I can stand tall.

VERSE TWO:
You are my rock Lord, you are my shield.
When the enemy surrounds me, it is your strength I feel.
I'll drawl all your courage, during the battle in need.
I'll then win in victory.
Because you are the King of Kings and you fought next to me.

Positive Feedback Psycho Destroyer

Here's a unique kind of troll.
He trawls eBay to seduce sellers kiss-blowing
hundred percent positive feedback after their letters;
Those sellers that truly adore their customers proud,
Mesmerised by their own encore-bows..

 And that's when he strikes,
That's when he pounces:
Scoping them from his subterranean below-the-radar watchtower,
He buys stuff he neither wants or needs,
Only so he can destroy sellers positive feedback.

 Just for that? Yes. 
He loves destroying sellers one-hundred percent positive feedback.
Well we all need a hobby.
Welcome to the twenty-first century.

 For he is the King Neg Feedback Man.
The Genghis Attila Neg Feedback Man.
He leaves neg feedback because..? He can?
Yes.

 Your bubblewrap made the wrong popping sound.
The packaging was grey; I prefer light brown.
The rubber duck you sold me is unrealistically buoyant;
I couldn't drown it - imagine my disappointment.

 Roaring scornful vapour trails his neg feedback warlord lust,
Grinds yet another gobsmacked seller pitilessly into pixillated dust..
Another old lady, mashed, weeps into her rusks;
It was her late husband's cardigan,
She didn't ask for much,
But no, still he ruthlessly blancmanged her baby-boomer,
love-not-bombs bone-ashing collapsing face with neg feedback.
She'll never get over that.

 She'll never get over that..
Her dead husband's cardigan got neg feedback.
Her granny farm cell is now the Heartbreak Hotel,
Memories of her husband's cardigan swirl down swallowed 
to where troll demons dwell.
The ravines on her face deeper than Martian sands.
Tears for her bedpan.
Tears for her bedpan.
Her name is Roxanne.

 And lo, let it be written,
As the years roll on by,
Under different false names, accounts and guises,
He will continue to traumatise, baffle, vaporise and tyrannise
the positive feedback prize-agonizers -
Fazing and hazing,
Liquidising and mayonnaising them with neg feedback.

 He doesn't seem angry, bitter or twisted;
He's never been bullied or abused;
He's never had a penchant for sniffing badgers - or glue,
(or sniffing badgers that sniff glue).
His kids love him,
His wife, his mistress, his goldfish, his garden gnomes do too.
He just loves buying things so he can leave neg feedback.

 Your old man's cardigan smells of plastic buttons.. 

 See, it's just his hobby,
It's just his aphrodisiac,
It's just the way he blows his stack,
It's how he gets his black back into even more black.
He just loves leaving negative feedback.
It's as simple as that.
Some people are just like that.
It's that deep.

Gentle Breeze

Gentle Breeze
Things blowing all around me but I am standing still. Problems like a hurricane, the world thinks I should yield. But, there’s a gentle breeze blowing calling me in where I will find the strength to begin again.
There’s a gentle breeze around me that’s steady and true. It gives me comfort and strength I never knew.
As the stillness comes, I settle down, knowing that everything’s ok. Looking past the horizon the heavy winds blow but deep inside is my comfort zone, I am safe when I’m at home.

The gentle winds are blowing safe within my soul.
I feel like I could slip away to another place. A place where only the gentle breeze can blow on my face. Blow on me gentle breeze calm my soul within. Blow on me gentle breeze bring me peace again.
Blow gentle breeze, gentle breeze blow.

The world is sometimes harsh and scary, I wish I could run and hide. But everywhere I look there’s no end in sight. I finally found that place in me that helps me deal with things. I feel the breeze coming on, I see it in the trees.
Blow on gentle breeze, blow within my soul. Help me find that resting place that heals my 
wounded soul.
Blow gentle breeze, gentle breeze blow

~Sorrow Of Life~

                         
                           I try to look in the mirror it starts erasing me

                          until the only thing i see is a mask of blizzery

                       it filled up with moments of cold thoughts of misery

               I think i ate the poisoned apple that snow whites supposed eat

                            cause now I'm living another life like Dorothy

                             oh, spoke to soon here it comes there i go

                              the tornado that makes the volcano blow.

               -dedicated to the LIFE i live, dedicated to the LIFE that gives.

Faith Healer

The odor is intolerable
Like a foul beast clinging to the end 
I can barely subdue its subterfuge 
But here I am, 
I’m standing here of sound and mind
Waiting for the time that answers my own questions

Can it race with the fires of Orc?
Doubtful, but it can jog steadily can’t it?
The weather is awful, filled with sounds
Penetrating a document not written
It pains me to fight through the night
Not because it’s dark, but because I am just a shadow.

Lester drives but
Motional lasts forever
Still driving
Still crying
And slowly dying as time waves on
Like oceans that can’t be seen.

Nobody cares and everyone listens
Ironic, like a bible that holds lies and deception
Can its will be pierced?
Can freedom stay free?
Is it worth it to stay hooked when everyone around
Seeks liberty?

Tiger Fierce

You can pin me down and take everything from me.
Thinking you really do something but it'll make me come back stronger.
Say some things thati'll have you cry,frightened,or have a heart attack.
Take my family,friends, and other things i love that are important to me.
Ill show you how weak i can be.
Don't stir up the gemini that lies inside.


I've done many things
I've said many things
I've seen many things
I've felt many things
Things that made me want to die
Although my craziness hasn't begin to subside.

I was born to a soldier, from her i became a soldier.
Watched her knock down brick wall and break out steel cages.
Saw her fall when there was no hope.
Got back up when we called.
Fierce as a snake as loving as any great mother can be.
From her I learned even when everything is on you
use what you got, don't depend on anyone else.

Sorry

Down next to the river bend
You know you took my breath away
I’m glad you finally realized it
And tried to save the day

I drowned in your love
I’m sorry
What's done, it can’t be undone
I am sorry

Your breath replacing mine
Your air flowing through my lungs
And that pounding in my chest
We both know it’s because of you, baby

I’m sorry my sweet darling
I’m sorry caring father
Who never sees his son
I’m sorry late night drinker
Who chases when I run

And I drowned in your love
I’m sorry
What's done, it can’t be undone
I’m sorry

As I watch the scene from afar
I can tell you’re sorry
That you let it get this far
But you’re not sorry

I’m sorry
That our son will have no mother
I am sorry 
He never really had a father
I am sorry, so sorry
That I let it get this far

And I’m sorry
For the call my parents got
I am sorry
They lost their daughter
To another useless fight
With the man they never liked

I’m so sorry

The Spider Of Our Life

In shattered glass you live with malice and rejection.
With skin soft as silk you reach out with a violent urge for affection.
Papers thrown on to the street with lack of attention.
They wove this web over your tarnished scythe.
The blade's poison seeping through, sharp as a knife.
The Spider Of Our Life.
I wove this web over your tarnished scythe.
The blade's poison seeping through, sharp as a knife.
The Spider Of Our Life.
Nothing quite campares to the way you self-indulge in your isolation.
Lying there, locked away in your virtuous perfection.
As you sort this reality from your fiction,
you realize your fantasies are a dangerous distraction.
These hateful words become all you swallow.
With mirrors and mascara you wallow.
A used body for the bombshell of your sorrow.
They wove this web over your tarnished scythe.
The blade's poison seeping through, sharp as a knife.
The Spider Of Our Life.
I wove this web over your tarnished scythe.
The blade's poison seeping through, sharp as a knife.
The Spider Of Our Life.
Nothing quite campares to the way you self-indulge in your isolation.
Lying there, locked away in your virtuous perfection.
As you sort this reality from your fiction,
you realize your fantasies are a dangerous distraction.
In the past you always live.
Keeping secrets you feel that no one can forgive.
Tokens of lost love and forgotten religion scrawled across the floor of your bedroom.
Living without precious moments and dying all alone, this is your seemingly inescapable doom.
Here's to the gifts I've given myself, a piece of knowledge for all to see.
I am "you" and "you" are me.
They wove this web over your tarnished scythe.
The blade's poison seeping through, sharp as a knife.
The Spider Of Our Life.
I wove this web over your tarnished scythe.
The blade's poison seeping through, sharp as a knife.
The Spider Of Our Life.
Nothing quite campares to the way you self-indulge in your isolation.
Lying there, locked away in your virtuous perfection.
As you sort this reality from your fiction,
you realize your fantasies are a dangerous distraction.

Zring sissity rib rang

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement primarily involved visual arts, literature—poetry, 
art manifestoes, art theory—theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war 
politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works.

This is my attempt at Dada.

prayers on mute

Some of us are built 
For harsh conditions
Suffrage held
Within a wicked vision
Reprimanded as a man
How can your father reprimand this hand
Discipline disciples 
in a cycle that would not turn in sand
Held in Carthage 
A piece of a Martian
Some say I’m soon to be departing
Pieces of gold in a bronze room
Shining through chivalry and doom
Sterile silvery praising a ring for the groom
All prized possessions of doubt now loom
Pushing the broom
On a straw bed 
Don’t u love this coon
You can be kind to the cruelest person
And at the end of the day 
They’re still cruel and worsened 
This worlds got to end
No sanctuary circles my morbid realms
I’m away from peace
And aware that it will never cease

Only time can stop me now 
Wishes sealed over a candle in a darkened hall
Head down I just might die on this wall
In this race I’ll survive somehow
Only time can stop me now 

I’m so scared 
Where are your prayers
I was so scared 
Why weren’t you there
I’m so scared 
should I have been spared

masque of mysterio

The piano screams my name
No body knows my pain
Out on a stormy day
What else does your story say

As we exist 
through a code of known morals
Who can strip 
the back of a snake corralled
Pleasantly awaken common sense 
and flaunt it plural
Ruminants 
of an area less than rural 
Drip-lets let you know something’s fallen
I wish but then a gain
A wish is an incomplete thought
A decision is contemplation completed
And reasoning 
Is only an individuals desire defeated

The piano screams my name
No body knows my pain
Out on a stormy day
What else does your story say

I’ll see you tomorrow, maybe
But tomorrow 
will definitely see you first my friend
Searching my pockets thin
Out on my last wind
The curse of we aborted men
Raped in anger a changeling to 
An opinion voiced is nothing new
Losing my way
Last night I slept in the morning dew 
A masque of reddened death
Prelude to a bubonic fever
A modern day swine flu
Flesh deadened to depths 
Unbelievably I stood right behind you

The piano screams my name
No body knows my pain
Out on a stormy day
What else does your story say

"in my glass of cognac"

Thunder Night

I hear thunder in the distance
   Across this frozen night
Blinding light from lightning strikes
   Exploding in my soul

One night, this night I see
   The eyes that used to be

Blue paradise to me

Above, the heavens do unfold
   Serenity abides
Winged angels soar in ecstasy
   Among my dreams

One night, this night I see
   The eyes that used to be

Blue paradise to me

There is magic in the heart that beats
   Across this frozen night
A magic so divine, and yet
   So cold, so long ago

One night, this night I see
   The eyes that used to be

Blue paradise to me
Blue paradise to me

MOMENT IN TIME

Dad, I never doubted anything you ever said.
You had been my constant source for
information and authority from my earliest
memories.  So I believed you every time 
you called my worthless.  You said I'd never 
amount to anything.  Said my love of lyrics 
was a ticket to the welfare line.  For years 
I bought every word you pitched on me.  

Then I met her.. She was beautiful and 
transparent.  Her life was one authentic
walk.  I wrote her one of my worthless
love songs.  She cried and said it was the
most amazing thing she had ever read. In
a moment, that moment.  I changed.  I 
stopped believing your lies and began to
trust myself.  Nothing has been the same since.

I married that beautiful girl, made a career 
out of lyrics, and forgave you. If I live to be 
a hundred, I will never forget that moment!

This moment is what it is because of that moment...

I love you

laugh now cry later
A style I well know
my laugh and smile is just an act 
that hides the real show

Though my heart about to break
I can not hate
though you got no halo
You're my angel
This ain't fake...
so please just stay.

Time

Clocks tick bells chime
willingly to tell the time

Seconds minutes hours days
Turn into weeks months then decades

Take time make time to look this way
in the middle of your busy day

I dont have time i hear you say 
my time our time gone astray

Im tied to time is another cliche you say
when you just want to get away

Playtime leisure time daytime nightime 
all this time that you are mine

As sure as nightime follows day
time is always ticking away

I'm Weighted Down

Dragging thoughts around
In my head...
Trying to remember all you said.

The sun is still shining!
Spring is on the way...
I know,
Day by day,
You will be a memory,
To be tossed aside
Like these winter days which
Have left me cold
And
Longing for
Spring's promises!

bought with gold,sold on green ,wrote in blood

where go those men with dignified eye's
who stand against the wall facing a volley of fire
ready to drop dead,blind folded and bound
all knowing and waiting for destiny's sound
where goe's the justice promised us all
for there aint no justice in where these men fall
the crime they committed was to stand for their right's
but corporate suit's don't stand in the fight
don't stand for no cause less it's golden or green
sat counting their money in number's obscene
they're building their bridges over city's and town's
and all in their way become's dust on the ground
so take to the bank's and withdraw all your cash
spend it on  freedom and have the last laugh
the world and it's structure will fall into flame's
afterward's Goodman will build it again
the same men blindfolded and stood against the wall
will pick up their brother's from were once they fall
will pick up their shovel's ,hammer's and nails
and search on together for a new holy grail.

Thoughtless

everywhere i go faces looking
people talking
people screaming

the sad faces
in the wrong places

nowhere to go

darkened rooms
horrible dreams

dead memories
still here to haunt me

if you move on 
the past stays 

a man in my dream
what really happened will be revealed

if i were to lie
i would be in shame
as any human would

after a while you stop thinking
and you just move forward
not knowing what the future holds

but knowing its not good

the horror they live in

the horror of war
the horror of the legends the people start
and the horror of being human

then i met you
now i believe in pixie dust,
Sparkling in the wind.
Cupid's arrow has struck my heart
and now your my knight in shining armor
your my wish come true
now i believe in happily ever after
now my fairytales alive

Hey, Pilgrims,
Let's dress-up
Dress-down the plumes
of the dancing Peacock
(If we'd allow)
but for the Ritual;

For Francsly speaking
in tongues of plata y oro,
Pound-for-bloody-pound
How much 'cide this buys?
A simply-uneasy angst to the quest,
Oh, how Corpulent "m.d.'s" -
Which dystrophy Indigene Water - Land - Identity muscle 
Manifest your Destiny! - Trophied.

Lots of time for sargeants,
for unhappy Cherokee rides on trails to tears      
Led from 50,000 years to Discovery? Indeed!
With no reservation 
'cept to enslave the Spirit,
And with tobacco & cotton gotten
from the corn colors of the Earth!

Are the Iroquois/Mohawk/Navajo/Cherokee/Hopi
Thankfully jeeping...?

Don You grisly-now...
Our meleagris gallopavo decapatito,
Strut and march like mute Mummera in the Charade!

On The Horizon

Let's go hand n' hand,
racing to the heavens
I can feel the storm;
inside you closing in 
on me.

Here I will have appeared
to have fallen on the fiery;
horizon in your quake that 
makes me weak.

One quick gleam back and
I knew I had to keep this:
love so unique n' defined
alive above the snowy
clouds of your mind.

As I ponder to re~unite the
shimmering moon, with only
you and I side~by~side, 
reaching in to grab for the stars,

Against, A blistering sun I
can say that our love will,
never burn out,


For we have each~other
always n' forever.... Where I
shout your name across the
Sky.

I dedicate this to a loving poet: RP

Bear with me

You I’m still searching for a life
I don’t have the answers to your questions
But sometimes I just want you to believe in me
Someday I will find my own way

I don’t know what I should do
But stay for me and tell me to hold on
It’s a heart breaking seeing the unhappy
What more can I do, All I can is to hope

If I don’t talk too much
Doesn’t mean that I don’t care
If I don’t do things enough
Doesn’t mean I don’t do anything

If I could turn back the time
And knowing the future would be such a dull
Maybe I can make up for all my mistakes
And be the girl you wanted me to be

Tell you something…
My heart hurts
It hurts deeply through my brain

Nothing else I could do…
My tears fall as I bend down on my knees
Wishing everything turns beautifully
And no more worries in our life

Just let me keep my dream alive
Let me die trying or nothing at all
Let me believe on its possibility
Believed in me and always you’ll be

I have sacrifice the time
For searching and hoping
Though it’s such a waste of time
I know everything will turns beautifully

One More Day

I won’t dream in circles next to you
And before I wake I’ll pray
That for me you’ll stay one more day,
Just one more you’ll stay with me.
Colors and shapes of every size
Form behind my wavered eyes.
You breathe slow and hold my face;
I drift off, lost in grace.
Before I go to make my way;
With a longing kiss I’ll silently pray
You’ll hold me close and ask me to stay,
You’ll ask of just one more day with me,
One more day you’ll ask me to stay, with you.
I know that we can’t lay here forever,
But all I want is one more day, one more day together.

eyes around you

if you could save a life 
would you give yours, die twice 
or seek the common sacrifice
within his eyes

i put stride in my fears 
and walked my tears away
if i could recount the years today
amongst my peers i'm here to say
address your bed, your whereabouts 
and the mirrors from which you lay

There's no heaven above me
But you want to seek love 
And tell me to lead the doomed
Pray upon salt castles
And clay statues
Remain humble with stones 
Veering at you 

on bending knee
you send a plee
do rekindle me 
Set me apart
from windows, free
only to pay
a widows fee

Scars are tattoos 
That remind us 
What not to do
Where not to go
Have I 
Forgotten you?

I rest my thoughts 
Where they don't lay 
If i could rise equivilently 
To an average monday
That would be life 
According to what some say

When nightmares become reality
Angels cry
Where shadows hide
They tear at the thought
of disclosing immortality
the same as the posture 
of an adolescent in high fidelity 

if you could save a life 
would you give yours, die twice 
or seek the common sacrifice
within his eyes

Your Smile

It’s not what I want, It’s what I need
It’s not who I love, It’s who loves me
I can’t control every little thing
So you’ll just have to bear with me

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

Life isn’t always easy
I know 
But we can make it through 
Together
It’s true
And I need you by my side 
And you know you need me too
So just stay with me 
And we’ll show the world what we can do

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

You think you are too strong
And when life comes along
I just need you to believe
That you can lean on me
And I’ll return the favor 
When the time comes along 

Cuz I need you to stay here with me
And keep me company
Cuz your love means so much to me 
And your smile
Is enough
To keep me happy 
For a long long while

Orpheus My Valentine Not Dead

Last night I believed I saw three Witch Beings 
relent and cast down from winter moon 
Orpheus, free riding.  

Happy all with his magical lyre.
Not in bereavements of old, 
no traps and lures set with crying, 
he called to me.

His sun-gold limbs were elegant intact.
Feet swift where night wind took him.
Blood red were his cheeks and marked,
telling where he’d been.

By fate or by plan that night he came
into my darkened room, my bed.
His whispered song tenderly to hold me.
Orpheus, my valentine, not dead.

the keeper's self

when no clouds touch the sky
tomorrow becomes
just another way to get by
we free birds dream the livr's lie
Forever you and I 
live the dreamr's cry

if you ask for the devil long enough
he will eventually join you 
so be warm, be joyful 
politely ask him to leave 

find comfort within the things you know
and appreciate the things you donot 
and do try not to be so distant
for when the winds sway 
the chill reminds me
just how dearly i miss you 

time will bring changes 
and age to weather 
and in the mist of adversity 
you will get to see 
the true size of you 
Like a mirror for the moment 
Tomorrow admires you 

"like a curse, i'll write you away"

Everything gonna be Alright

Everything gonna be Al right.

Yes it is.
No matter what they say.
Or the pain. It will go away.
Sleep will return.
Keep up the fight.
Everything gonna be al right.

Were in this life together.
Through the bad weather.
Spring will come.
The sun for you. Chum.
You are young.
Every thing is gonna be al right.

No matter what the Doctor said.
You are alive, not dead.
Lift up your head.
Nothing will keep you in bed.
Everything is gonna be al right.

I promise you.
You will  recover.
Enjoy life forever.
I am sure of this, Gods honor.
I will bear it for you.
Every thing is gonna be al right.

I know how it is.
I also suffer so.
We can bear it.
But come tomorrow.
Gone the sorrow.
Sickness no. Health.
All the goodness of life.
And happiness.
Everything gonna be al right.

a midnight wish

There’s a chill in the cold 
And it’s going nowhere 
She says it’s going to get worse 
Before it get better 
But we’ll hold on like stormy weather

If midnight falls then I’m homeless 
She says so calmly 
The winds going to take me away
But I don’t want to go lonely 

She likes to think
That you can carry on for sometime
She marries for the day
But she yields from the moments 

There’s everything you hope for
A map for the road
A picture for your wall
A lasso around the moon
Dawn, she's going to come to soon

She smiles softly
If midnight falls then it’s hopeless
She says so calmly
The winds going to take me far away
But I don’t want to leave you lonely 

She concludes
You can’t take away from a man
What he’s already lost 
But she insist 
That bubble baths and a warm massage
Will take away your Sunday misery

i fear it all sometimes
i hear your screams
and i wonder
if you're calling
but i can't reach you 
no i couldn't reach you
i tried but i just couldn't save you

As you'll soon see now I'm back here writing again'
So I just thought I'd drop in 'n' say,"hi" to you,
I spit phrasesthat thrill see that's just what I do,
And before this days done you will all know my name,'
Now thelyricalmiracle's back in the game.

forget your needle in a hay stack

I'm a needle in a haystack
walking about among all
never standing tall.
 A stick in an ever growing field of flowers.
never a stalk, never any power.
just a lone discarded weed, but i feed
on your unknowing, my unshowing.
until an unblossoming of a true form me
and a society forced to see me,
and try to be me,
 the perfect rose.

Post It
In any color,
On your heart
The refrigerator
Mirror...
Post It
As a reminder
Just in case
You forget for a minute
I love you
True.

Empty Teardrops On My Fingertips

There is only you and me were universal speak our minds until they become controversial the current administration couldn't build a tent that's why I should run for president I would represent you all as I hate you, equally no justification just in my way, literally the broken egg shells I walk on for you to cringe your nails and do as you do Mary wasn't quite contrary on this particular conspicuous evening it seems she's overdressed for the occasion wearing nothing but a green wreath over places What's the difference between me and you? I have power beyond imagination and control of my dreams you misunderstand the smallest of things and then blame me for your state of denial I'm in a state of comfortness but must move forward in order to progress otherwise I am just oppressed or overly blessed, and won't digress.

You

Saw you and knew you

We didnt even need to speak

Saw you and wanted you in my life

just the thought of you makes me sick

So love sick my heart hurts

 

So love sick my stomach hurts 

hunger no food can fill

I need a bowlful of

U

 

Dosent make any sense

I dont know you

yet being without you

Dosent make any sense

 

I dont know you

yet knowing you has changed me

what a mind @$#%$

This needs to stop

 

Stop invading my thoughts...I hate that

I hate that you are so delicious ...ok I need to stop

You have me and you have no idea

 

Got to shake this..but I cant

It's like I'm wearing the Queens crown so heavy and beautiful

and YOU are the King

But the kingdom dosent exist

outside my mind

 

YOU

Addiction

A family addiction
Genes tell the truth
People tell lies
Bathroom secrets
A door slams
Living room tells a TV story
Bookshelf storage dust
Kitchen fast food noise
Lounge silence
Doorbell interruptions
Dog barks
Child screams
Phone vibrates
Trees whistle
Blackbird chirps
Cat sneaks off
Neighbour hoots horn
A car breaks the lull
Moon light shows a face
A cheeky smoke
A midnight snack
Curfew ends
Front door clicks
It clicks again
And again
Whispers
Brushes
Night
Snores
Morning

Young, and Wild, and FREE

You used to keep me outta trouble. 
Keep me n a little bubble. 
Always watching my back 
to be sure I didn't lack. 
Kept me on a path. 
Now Im walking out in the grass. 
Trying to do me, 
whoever that may be.
 But until I figure it out, 
I guess I'll just live
 young and wild and free...

PROMISE BROKEN

I asked for wealth
And promised to use it  with purpose
But willingly did I break it on a day
Now I sit to justify my coarse
I did but not in its worse form, I said to me
I broke your heart 
After exchanging wealth for flirt
Your vigilant one has fallen
Your eyes are heavy
With such awesome strength
You let yourself flow
Yes, it drizzled their unto me
Then I was frightened
Later all was bright
This ordeal waken me
To all you have given me,when I asked
Courage, though I misused
Made me to let go of fear
An ill decision it was
But it was one I took with boldness
I sense maturity within me
To take a coarse with head up-high
Though I praise not the course
But to realize the presented values
I acknowledge
I have fallen but ain't staying down
I rise for a wise coarse
One that will not trade my wealth
Back into your hands I entrust my ways
Take charge

Greatest Fear

That girl you see, she's standing there
She hides behind her pretty hair
She cries inside but smiles without
She gives the whole wide world a shout
Reminding them of the scars he left her
He cries aloud, because he knows it's over

In a crowded room she feels alone
She taps her heels three times
but she can't go home

He was her escape, her only way out
So she misses him without a doubt
She's tried moving on but she can't let go
She tries so hard not to let it show

She cries herself to sleep at night
'Cause she's unaware and not ready to fight
Another battle in this dark, cold war

She knows she'll never be the same
It takes all she's got to keep from going insane
As she finally reaches her breaking point

A once white rose was painted red
Reminding her of the tears she's bled
Her bright smile once lit up the room
But now her sadness turns the whole world blue.

In a dark room she tries to find the light
but there's not an ounce of hope in sight
The world as she knew it was crashing down
But they couldn't even hear the sound
Of her voice crying out for help
Someone save me

Now she's crying for the whole wide world to hear
That her reality, is her greatest fear.

Scenes From Above

A face that you see everyday
That same reflection that you curse in various ways
Punished for hard living
Praised for innocent givings
Untoucheables repeatedly charmed
Because we are have-nots, we are seated and alarmed
White roses, clear caskets, and black doves
Nothing more than scenes from above
It sprinkles like hell in a well
Heavenly treasures are the remains of Satan
When the last drop of life is strained from my veins
I will not be awaking
As I am crucified on this witness stand
There's only one thing I demand
God bless the stress in my hands
The warm feeling of a passionate hug
These are Scenes from Above
I am all but a portion of Caesar
Granted extortion of a true believer
And before I leave this trial
I'll probably be slained and murdered
Over the stars
And through eternal pain my soul will be hurdled
Set me out to sea and let my flesh burn
Let my advasaries recognize stress and mourn
Forever overwhelmed with passion and love
Nothing more than Scenes From Above
I'm a few new frogs from leaping
One shoe on the logs from deeping
A handful of tears from weeping
Three scars away from being worth not keeping
Open a new testament
Why these demons bother to pester me 
No telling howmany sins I am from resting in Hell
Seven seals from guessing my bail
Today may not be what it seems
But tomarrow is only a dream
I'm a few pushes from a great shove
A few Scenes From Waking Above

Ride the Wind

Oh, that I could be brother
to the wind,
            ride on his coattails
throughout the land . . .

across oceans wide and deep
            furiously whip the waves
awake mammoths who sleep,

through forests dark and alive
            whisper to the trees,
Do your duty please, grow, thrive.

Over snow capped mountains
            take a heart-stopping ride
down, down the mountainside,

splash in waterfalls
            drink the life-giving brew
and spew it out my mouth

into peaceful meadows
            where growing things
eager and free, sing to me 
            their joyous melody.

Epitome

Yearning for more than just your presence.
It's 1:17am & I'm not pondering on small talk or tea party conversation. 
My mind is wondering; craving mental stimulation. 
Aching for a stroke so slow it whispers "no rushing," & it's amazing how you're so deep into me 
- but there's no touching. 

I imagine the way your words will begin to graze my ears, 
Wet with intelligence, 
drippings of wisdom & compassion. 
All technology is hushed because tonight we're old fashioned. 
Everything is turned off with the exception of us two, 
Aroused & we begin to unleash our thoughts, 

It's a potluck of beliefs, wishes and dreams. 
As I close my eyes, I finally can see what you mean. 
Thirsting for the way you'll flutter your tongue as you spit out what you fear, Convinced that I'd hate to be anywhere but here.
Fastened into the discussion; a slow and steady rhythm with a rough percussion. 
It's 1:49 & I imagine that my lips are moist with fascination 
By the way you've repudiated ignorance and filled me with longing sensation, 
Insular visions are not welcome where we are,
Detached from traditional teachings we've come so far.

You are the ultimate epitome of perfection, 
I surrender to your sermon with no objections.
An erudite King that permeates to my roots, 
Sagacity leaking from your lips, 
I love the way you penetrate me. 

Bullets of knowledge hollow my brain 
demanding room for a newfangled way of thinking, 
My once idle mind consistently shrinking. 
I can almost envision the way my secrets will taste as I feed them to you, 
How real are my fantasizes at 2:42?

Lost in my lust for comprehension, 
Locked in a generation that seems to be on academic suspension. 
An epidemic of stupidity, as I yearn for a meditative caress.
As our tongues click, out flies all of the worries on our chests. 

Staring into one another, 
translucent as can be.
Comfortable in our submission, 
welcoming our transition.

Letting Him In

You said you love us
And would never hurt us
But then you let him walk into our lifes
Even with everything you know
You wouldn't say no and just walk away
You finally stood your ground
Said never and left him for all he's worth

I hope you never know 
All the things that go through this head
I hope you never know
All the pain that i felt
I hope you never know
All the nights that i lied awake in bed
I hope you never know
All the tears that shot down my face
I hope you never know
All the pain

All the pain you invited in
Just by letting him walk in
All the sorrows you carried in
The ones with no end
All the sleepless nights that would begin
All the tears that have no trace
All the fears I face inside
And all the nightmares that came to be

And all this
Just by letting him in

Heartless Fire

In my fervent heart,
You knew I treasured you
But you didn’t return those tender feelings
Just see the fumes arise from the consuming fire
Because my wicked desires wasted away into embers
I love you…I love you…These feelings are ever so new!
I LOVE YOU…I love you…These feelings are always true!
You knew I honestly adored you…oh yeah; I always did from the start
But you don’t consider those mild feelings—you wrecked those bits by bits
Ah! Now I’m crammed into the ascending fire, splintering me with the strokes of death
Because of my virtuous desires, I’m wasting away into the pit of corruption
I thought you were encompassed with my passionate kisses
But you wanted to chase after your callous blisses, now I’m faced with crises
I detest the thought of adoring you…but I have to admit—I love you!
I love you…I love you with all of my heart! Do you love me too?
I know the desires that I have constructed for you never occurred in your heart
I know in the bottom of my heart that you were only enticed by your sick pleasures
You’re dumping me into the raging fire and you’re a sneaky little liar
Because I ain’t lying like you do deceitfully to me—I’m in love and I can’t draw back my desire
You brought magnificence in my eyes, comforting angel
But I’m subsiding into the cavernous fire
Because I surrender to my legit desire
How could I free from the embrace that yanks on to me?
You brighten up my dreams and set me free from reality’s calamity
I love you…I love you…These feeling relieve me from the blue!
I LOVE YOU…I love you…I adore your every existence—do you get the clue?
You knew I kept this feeling inside for so long
Nevertheless, I feel that I belong
In your heart…In His heart…
In my heart…we’ll never depart!
You are my true endeavor
And I wanna win your heart forever!
You’ll always be loved because you’re above beautiful
But, you don’t believe this love will survive in this stranded palace
But I’ll attempt to win you with all of my might and I’ll defeat the malice
Our boundless love is like two fireflies floating in the midnight sky
But you disturbed our greetings and you didn’t even accept the feelings I felt for you
Why did you blow away our interweaved feelings of passion
And blew them away into the heartless fire?
My precious love, why did you diminish my eternal desire?
You knew I worshiped you
In my sensitive heart

My Word, Absurd

I'm born again, Christian
have you not been listening
to my sincere admissions
every since I was a kitten

Ha, my kitchen
is too hot for Hell
keep on constructing 
my own prison, might as well
and then I shall escape it
a regular Houdini
stand atop my cell 
like the Hell conqueror 
I became so freely

An ocean I created
of problems, then solved them
bait on a line just like trout
do you follow?
hooked line and sinker
a thinker, who speaks out
absolutely absurd are the words
running from my mouth

I could never be liked too much
because everything is wrong
not a true believer? Says who
your stupid mom?
Oh the power of deception
if you need this filtered
white out is good for correction

The passion I wear
I let it out so all can hear
but I force no one to listen
like certain religions built on fear
it seems I am sorry already
do I feel guilty?
not really, but sometimes like you
I just feel empty

I'm free by my own admission
even though it seems like only
the Christians really listen
that's fine, for I still got the line
maybe I'll realize someday 
by my word, I am absurd
ever I have too much little time
please don't get me wrong
I respect bright, albeit enslaved minds
even those who don't respect mine.

more silent wars

Of all the wonderful things 
and this is what I think of 
The days that die away
Dire toward

from a body painted like a portrait 
i now realize my days were worth living
and i apologize if my smile
is a bigger burden then you can bare

drinking death
maybe that's what belief is 
a journey of man to find himself

Having gotten over looking into the mirror at night
I find it harder to face the days 
standing closer to the carousel 
I see the ends in sight

fairytales give us something to believe in 
when this life becomes too real
I'm about to go watch a movie 
and pretend tomorrow doesnt matter

We spent most of our life in an abandoned train car

We spent most of our life in an abandoned train car
fashioned a bed out of cloth and some seats
there was no room for both so I took the floor beside you
but there were bugs in our pillow and beneath the sheets

We lived off old paychecks I lived off your love
still I insist that I owe loans for both
I gave mine so sparingly I thought I would rust
but steel does not oxidize nearly as much

You'd sit with your glasses on lost in your work
while I played the radio and painted a while
I painted you young and I hung it up after
you said: "turn down the radio, my head's a disaster"

This place feels constricting the walls are so cold
and for the first time I feel all my years old
you still sleep on hard seats, they are filled up with ghosts
and I'm still sleeping under you, we try hard not to touch

Theres a churning of metal, or maybe that's me
but at least the sound drowns out the silence that seems
to have moved as a tenant though I can't tell you when
but its much better company than I've ever been

I'd open my mouth and try to ask you these things
but all that occurs is the rustling of sheets
as I breathe out a sigh since I don't have to speak
your ears are a desert, my lips the red sea

One night you awoke me from two fitful rests
you must have moved in sleep, your breath mingled with mine
when you lifted your eyes I saw they were bright blue
it was a color well suited for you

armor

will these desperate messages
go up in smoke
the ones you'll never read
until i finally explode
left at my defenses
this steel won't provide much protection
you're alone without your armor
and begging to skip the steps
"please get to the end for starters"

[chorus]
you don't want to face what can't be stopped
and its too hard to understand
why you're the prey i seem to caught
can't see the future soldier?
is your badge really made of honor
brought up righteously
with a lying knight as your father.

[vrs.2]
you stole your shield
i count that as a crime
can't hide from what's chasing
or predict the damage
im sorry but you've just run out of time

[chorus]

[vrs.3]
the clocks alarm is set
no point in trying
you should have seen my signs
and know id have no mercy left
because this war is one you won't forget

lingual

the eloquence of -  
the song of the syllable
the tone, like solemn Gregorian chant, 
tympanically resonant to hear
beautiful as deep-red Tiffany glass
stoned echo of Morpheus 
a Morpheme of the god of dreams
the language is a beautiful thing
to hear - enunciated, emancipated,
softly muscular moves,
especially whispered into ear

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

The Shore Awaits

My head is heavy
with loneliness
as i sail into the moon
watching my reflection
run in circles
over and over i see
the deepest part of me
become lit with enmity
and endless misery
for it's difficult to look forward
when you live in a memory
and it's hard to kill 
the voices that torture you
when those voices
come from your own mind
Why must I
hurt myself so?
hoping for a better tomorrow
when i make it
so it never shall be so?
I must find a way
to outsmart my sadness
to look past my own
imperfections
to let my feelings go
to let go of my fear
and to finally let go
of the thought of finding
a better world
So from this day forth
and this night that is to fall
I will set my sail forever
I will never stop moving forward
and i shall ride the lightning
and swim in the tsunami
because i can overcome 
any odds that i already have not faced
I will find the land and shores of bliss
just speaking of the thought
makes me taste the sands 
of times to come
follow me into the abyss
and i promise
the shore awaits

the hand that wrote it

On my saddened days
I’m hoping 
That angels might shine
They’ve done 
everything you can do 
To a person in my shoes 
I’m still breathing
Made it home to tell my mother
She can rest her thoughts
this evening
Sunny days 
Appeal to the circumstances 
In my wretched strengths 
Living life’s 
a variable of extenuating odds 
I’m at twenty three percent 
Relaxing in the palms 
of several ghost
Trying to figure my wife
Theses hard times
Which means the most?
If I call for help 
Will anyone respond
I see individuals tattooed 
Declaring gods son
If I can do what I do 
Then who am I
Because of the people 
I was brought to 
I shed tears from my left eye
If angels don’t smile 
Am I doomed to trials
Of lowered eye brows 

Romulus 
and if the seas summon tomorrow
I will again ponder your trust 
for seasons shall follow

He was known as Romulus
And the seas shall swallow tomorrow
The hand of Romulus
And Caesar shall follow

smiles, fractures and new beginnings

I’ve been trying not to think about a lot of the things that come my way
A cool summer breeze has taken my doubts for all that I can believe

Dwelling on times too cautiously has left me walking in a wanderlust
When the day begins it ends and I have no one to trust 

I’ve been traveling and I’ve come so far
When all I needed was a friend you left me standing there

I’ve seen smiles and I’ve held some frowns
Seen an old man walking out on town
I’ve seen a harlot chasing the sound of love
Seen a man too tired to place himself found

In my mind I’ve been walking my worries toward a reluctant time
In my cloudy days I needed you there, all those lonely hours afterwards 

Today I was out running and I saw you alone
Suddenly you disappeared when I went to ask you what was wrong

Am I losing my mind, an illusionist in a broken time
Against the shoreline chasing everything that wasn’t mine

Seen coffee spilled when no one was around
I’ve seen a good man yield his days
I seen a champion walk away from a fight 
Seen a mother lost too weary to pray

"a potion for nights that outlast my days"

I am sanctified

Dearly loved,
What sort of worship
has been awakened in me?
I am sanctified

And my mind bleeds with that

My body is burning
with the flames of lust;
My mind is glowing
with the light of love !

as often as anyone else

How often do shadows cry
And if they do
This means like us
they feel to 
How often do whereabouts 
dispose of their founders
The emptied hands pivoted gruesome
To only expire before you lose them
This is why my eyes cry
Late night movies 
Midnight hours, how do you spend them
When letters feel “ no need to reply”
To where do we send them
A curious mind in eye sight
A figure taunted
The difference in people is 
“Don’t let your personality dye”
Flesh wounds appear the same
Determination’s found in change
Could you spare me some change
A course of new events
Hand prints on the face of cement
Try not to take life out of context 
“I’ll be home soon”
Read his final text
History is somewhat of a vex
Sort of a temporary fix
A day, a age, that some of us miss 
How do you become a person 
Or exhibit the features of everyday  people
Minus the wars, the battles, the ether 
Trouble awaits 
For those of us who refute 
Similar choices brought
About in this place of being
Bloggers are subsequent to ignorance
Just the lack of reading 
Express’s the true meaning of being for real
The objective to live and protect yourself 
Minus the kill
Sometimes glory comes as a steal 
Did you think love was beautiful
Black coffee, cigarette buds 
A raspy voice 
from a figurine with seductive cuticles 
A slice of pie
Banana’s and caramel 
On top of our lie
Apart of me is fiction
And some of you is true 
A journal 
Do you commit yourself to unfulfilled comments
Did you dust your hands off 
Wash your face 
and forget to accept the necessary compliments
If I’m shady
then you weren’t around 
Too far gone, dancing in the sun
Musically
you love the violin
Sympathetically 
you can’t sing without the gin

ISEYIN

Aranmo laso Iseyin ni ohunso
Aso ti aro olowo faramo olowo

Iseyin
of harried hills and skyscaping rocks
of humming hurricane and haughty harmattan
of succulent virgins and tasty lasses
of fearless fighters and valiant warriors
whose pock-marked faces tell tales of
changing seasons and fading ethos

Iseyin oro
your looms weave history of a thousand wars 
and countless strifes:
a kaleidoscope of sweat and blood
of bellowing ewiri and clanging steel
that power rippling biceps on virgin plots
and drape distant hills with a curtain of  lush green
of rippening grain and swollen roots 
that taunt and fatten western mind

Iseyin ebedi moko
where conscripted corps rouse sleepy road 
mouthing patriotic choruses with con-fidence
under the shun or in the st-rain 
of howling bigles and snarling commandants
between rationed meals and bedless sheets
educated urchins recarve stunted dreams and 
swap affections under the blessing of  a passionate moon;
culred in a fraternity of lust

Iseyin
at sunset 
a million pestles beat doughy rhythm to
the drum of seasonless soup and 
fumes of fermented wine
At night 
shakabula cast eerie silhouette of 
compromising customs and daring smugglers
every hut,a garage
every house ,a warehouse
every trail,an artery for the systemic draining of 
 a giang dwarf
Iseyin oh Iseyin
so benign your sonorous throat spurn 
loric tales of crushing contradictions and 
mesmerising oddities

the night rambler

i made my alliance's in the roar of the gunblast.
the battle had spilled out my head and into vile colour.
morning's no longer softly handle my shoulder.
they run ragedly round my hand's and feet like rat's.

my trademark walk had sauntered of with the devil.
along with my soul and serenity fled laughing.
i just lay waiting for death's welcome approach.
i wake in the sea choking and flapping.

my pupil's eclipse my sky blue eye's.
night after night i twitch like a drunk.
taxi's fly bye neon flashes.

Cap N Gown (Angel of Sadness)

I know you wanna see me in cap-n-gown 
A fresh breeze and a new way of life is what I found 
So please don’t cry 
When you don’t see me in my cap-n-gown 
In and out of foster homes 
My only comfort was pulling this holster alone 
From school to football practice 
Academy award winner 
my moms was the number one actress 
From football practice 
to back to those two huge oak trees 
A metaphor is simply that cold winters choked my knees 
And I know it’s gonna hurt 
Seeing “Class of 2005” imprinted on my shirt 
Maybe it’s me being selfish 
But how could I not tell you without a kiss 
Like me expecting to go to war 
and forgetting to enlist 
High school memories was fun and games 
Embarrassment was done in by shame 
Senior days are now numbered 
Summer smirks ever so humble 
Along with my peers 
my misery is pumping me up to fumble 
Still I know you wanna see me in cap-n-gown 
A fresh breeze and new way of life is what I found 
So please don’t cry 
When you don’t see me in my cap-n-gown

THINE TRUE SELF

THE BEAUTY YOU SEE IN MY EYES IS,
SADNESS FROM ALL THE PAIN I'VE SUFFERED IN MY LIFE.
MY RAGE IS MY SCARS, FROM ALL THE DAMAGED HEART ACHES,
I'VE EVER FELT.
WHILE YOU SEE ME SMILING OR LAUGHING ON THE OUTSIDE,
MY TEARS ARE CRYING OUT SILENTLY.
ALL ALONE, AND UNLOVED,
AND BARON OF A FAMILY;
AN ORPHANED AND ABANDONED AS A CHILD,
NOW A GROWN WOMEN.
I TRIED TO TURN MY BACK ON MYSELF AS WELL,
ONLY TO BE BROUGHT DOWN TO MY KNEES SCREAMING,
WITH ALL MY OVERWHELMING EMOTIONS RUNNING WILDLY,
INSIDE OF ME.
WISHING OTHERS WOULD UNDERSTAND HOW GRATEFUL THEY
SHOULD BE TO HAVE FAMILIES THAT REALLY LOVE AND CARE FOR THEM;
INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING AND GROANING.
THINKING TO MYSELF,
IF ONLY MY FAMILY SHOWED ME THAT
THEY LOVED ME THAT AS MUCH AS
I LOVE THEM.
INSTEAD REALITY SETS IN AND REMINDS ME ON
HOW CRUEL THIS WORLD HAS BEEN TO ME.
I FINALLY DECIDED TO START ANEW,
AND THIS NEW BEGINNING HAD ITS UPS AND DOWNS;
AND LIFE LESSONS THAT NEEDED TO BE LEARNED.
ACKNOWLEDGE AND APPLIED.
LEAVING ME WITH THE DREAM AND HOPE,
THAT ONE DAY SOON I WOULD FIND MY KINDRED SPIRIT,
OR HE WOULD FIND ME TO LOVE ME IN THE LOVING WAY,
THAT WE BOTH NEED AND DESERVE.

Magick Mirror

Cast out I blast out of a cage that once enslaved blast out towards an image worshiped Big myth, great idol its you I learn to admire in the trials, by fire that taught me how I should not be Now I'm lying in the entrails of the mystical lion swallowed up by the trend I believed was worth dying for, now I am no more; a lost scripture in this unfolding vicariously informed the show must go on everything on edge by the crash of a drone how did I find peace all on my own? no one can find it if they're searching too strong It invades you, somewhat saves you from the angst and rage of child's play adults playing war games in a dangerous way everybody staring blank, in loss of face.

A Poet's World

This poem is about the life and feelings of a poet/poetess.



In a poet's world there is heaven and hell,
and many stories to tell.
There are mysteries to solve and codes to unravel,
many roads to travel.
There are confessions of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Storms of rejection, dejection, and sorrow.
Reflections of love, marriage, and romance.
Expressions of flamboyance and dance.

In a poet's world there is music of rhythm and verse,
imaginations of all things on earth.
Songs, sonnets, lyrics, and beats,
gardens of flowers and of trees.
There are times of drama, prose, and learning.
A constant desire burning.
Laughter and tears and feelings of fear, all in a poet's world.
There are influences to work, criticism and hurt.
Achievement and goal, warmth and cold,
visions of life and death, 
and times to be quiet.

In a poet's world there is religion, science, and belief,
faith, hope, war, and peace.
Emotions of anger and tempers that rage,
many characters on stage.

In a poet's world there are promises and dreams,
nightmares and screams,
humbleness, happiness, and philosophy,
a lifetime of writing for infinity.
It's an angel who speaks to the poet's soul,
to tell the world all his heart holds.

Closer

Stepping closer,
Inches near what I've been waiting to devour,
Ever since a night without stars,
Gave all lost hope.
Somewhere in the darkness,
Eating any chance of life that lays in the open,
Anger thrusting my hold.
Looking further into the shadows,
Light getting dimmer.
Only giving a sign of one thing,
To hurry.
Fly behond grounds reach,
Closer,
If what I want is miles away,
Then that means I need to expand my mind miles longer.
Each footstep,
Each trail,
Leading me more near.
For maybe,
This will be eternity?
This is when, I ignore what's around me,
Embracing my hold.
What's really important,
Is the white outline,
Dimming as I squint my eyes.
To step closer,
To step right in front of it.
To stepping inside,
As fate decides what goes on next.

I'm Wide Awake, The Dreams Are Gone (Part 1)

I woke from a dream the other day
To find the memories that had run
To faded images and distorted sounds
Of what was the lingering sensation
Of a blissful oblivion

I woke from a dream the other day
The monotone greys that filled the air
And notes that sounded flat as they rang out
Made me long for that one sensation
Of a blissful oblivion

I woke from a dream again today
Clinging to the one memory that
Had lasted as the rest faded from my eyes
A perfect picture of your face entwined
With such a beautiful grace

I woke from a dream again today
the images had faded, turned to
nothing as the reality had brought me crashing
back to earth with nothing but my mattress 
and pillow to break my fall

requiem


(vrs 1)
with fingertips and tears that froze
you saw my fall from grace,
a crying shame.
and watched me go black to blue
go black to blue then burst to gold.

so confused and starved of love
youre shattered and broke
dancing on my grave with my skeletal bones,
you've never found what you seek,
walking backstreets alone.

(chorus)
you know that i am lost
you know ill never wake
you know that i am dark and deep
you know that i am fast asleep
and you cant accept im gone.

(vrs 2)
the worlds turned its back to forget
one soul thats left
you are the only ehart that knows
the one that died
still lives inside
still lives and cries for one.

and when it comes down to the truth
i was just a dying fool
who could not feel or breath
but survived off poisoned memories that never really happened.

(chorus)
you know that i am lost
you know ill never wake
you know that i am dark and deep
you know that i am fast asleep
and you cant accept im gone.

(vrs 3)
hallucinate
see me through the smoke
and tho im dead i still can love.
im deep inside your cigarette
you'll take me in
tho im a mess
tho ive layed down to rest.

(vrs 4)
dark and deep
i am fast asleep
i am fast asleep
you know that ive found peace.

lost sheep

into a comfortable slaughter
my shephard has left 
a wolf in disguise
to lead astray
his angelic daughters 
with the lord of the flies.

no one can hear the cries of the lost
purposely forgotten
we've been abandoned 
as targeted innocence
into the woods to be killed or bought

lost sheep
lost sheep
we can't see for ourself
or fend while our master is gone
left in a wilderness to be tested
while the survivors wait until dawn.

the story's of men

I carry with in my will 
The story’s of men
A cold winter chill 
On a summer day 
couldn’t comfort 
The story’s of men

I put stride in my fears and walked away my tears
I remember the scent of your hair 
Like yesterdays air

I go to sleep 
and awaken with the same head ache
In a dead lay
I felt that way sometimes

I don’t talk much 
And I don’t listen
Today I stood sound
My heart just thought it stiffened

Most pictures we see are black and white
August for change
Can you see the black in white
At my counterpoint and I’m invisible

A Camelot to her roses
A portrait of warmth in the cold
A poet at best 
Her’s at worst 
When obscurity was a curse

Relinquishing the scent of an aged piano
The melody it tunes
Century’s of counting souls
Any crisis can turn to an opportunity
What is it in man that looks for what it can’t see

Colour

Red is the colour of my hair,
The colour of the blood in my veins’
Of the cord that hung on the whore’s window
And doomed Jericho to fall.
The thin, slow strand of vermilion;
Scarlet ribbon tracing its way to the earth:
Rahab’s redemption and my rebirth.

Involuntary Release

Remember those days?
When you though I’d let go
Of the love that I had found
In you, I believed in myself;
The dreams that made me smile
Continue to befall upon my conscience.

Then, suddenly, we were lost;
No map for the memories
We kept for each other;
It is gone but
Why does forever last so long?
It doesn't seem to exist anymore.

A sight not to be seen
By sore hearts that silently
Cry in the night;
Remember those days
When we used to act 
The pages of our lives?
So pure in our thoughts
But never perfect.

So when can we see
The broken shards fly
Out of existence, once more;
It used to be so easy
Leaving the bygones in refuge;
The logics are befuddled by
The wondering mind working overtime
To save the strays of justice.

What momentary gesture 
Lurks behind those orbs of emotion?
Is it too hard to ask
To contain the rabid fear
Maddening the black lies, forlorn;
Throw away the forsaken gratitude
Of a happy life now morbid.

Here, take it back;
No more, no lack
Of intimacy shall cut
Through the skin sewn shut.
You were a fever
Destined to haunt forever
The tidings of my heart.
Lest I tear you apart,
I will remain
Bound by your chain,
Condemned by the both of us.

Personal Jihad?

where is the decree
i follow you, you follow me
we all got forced around
one another found on the side of another brother's mother
this is the end if i may be so bold
i'm telling you now what i've already told
this is the basic end to the nigh in sight
let the death of me be the death of us all

a martyr? nah
just someone with a decent head upon their shoulders

i fight this holy war with myself
i put my feelings upon the shelf
then i let them gather dust
then i sink, i swim, i do many things
but none of them affect you
so why would you bother with a stinking urchin like me?
i fancy myself a lyricist
i write a rhyme upon request
if it's no good, then try again
that's what this has come down to anyway
not everything we put out is worthwhile
so figure things out yourself for once
because i am stuck around this verse chorus verse
i go onstage without time to rehearse
and wing it, believe it or not
is it any good though?
you decide

mother mary comfort me
oh wait, i already used that lifeline
now i'm just a tiny thread
dangling from this needle in your arm
i am your addiction
i am your heroin
you inject me like sex
but no pleasure comes from it
oh well, who knows
what we could have been anyway?
i'm just barely even trying now
bend over and give me a kiss
even if it's just as listless
as i may be
who are you?
i've nothing to say
who are you in different... less desirable...
social situations?
someone else
gulping down the nerves like pills with no water
sweat beads around your forehead
simply because your turn to speak is coming up
i'm not getting any better at this 
really

a martyr? nah
just someone bored enough to take the fall

The Slayers' Pledge

For we are the slayers
Hear our cry:

We stand against evil with selfless intent
We are strong, we are bold
We are proud, we are free
We move as one in the void of night.

We fight together with hands of Earth
We love forever with hearts of fire
We dance together with spirits of water
We learn forever with minds of air.

We stand against darkness with passion and faith
We are brave, we are good
We are stalwart and true
We shall never break, 
But shall bend
As a willow in the wind.

For we are the slayers
May the forces of Hell cower and fear
For we are the slayers
Working in darkness,
Protecting the light.
We shall never surrender the fight.

Timely Expressions (from My Secret Sin)

Time don’t smile
I accept with open arms
The hardships wished upon this child
Time won’t smile
Scars for souvenirs
Symptoms of a lonely mans mile
Time don’t smile
My senior year nearly lost
I promise it’s everything but false
Generosity of a kind mans heart
Sacrificed happiness remaining the cost
Two wrongs don’t make a right
Yet I put two negatives together
And on the other end of the equation I saw a light
No need to become sentimental
My misery is all but instrumental
After while hope will be widespread
I mean continental
Speak soft to me mother
Let your prayers reach my heart, ever so gentle
And out here it ain’t all bad
Mistaken guilt for love, what you call sad
Internal bleeding
Still on my soul eternity is feeding
It’s all in good deeds
A palm full of trust is all I’m needing
LSD, stress , a bit of Hennessey
Got me blessed with bad tendencies
Why does it seem disaster is so kin to me
White roses, Grave yard dozers, and spiritual imposers
Has my life at a sudden closure
Time won’t smile

And We Danced

And I turned around to see you standing..looking back at me

Time stood still…time stood still

In that moment... we both knew... we were meant to be together

And we smiled, yes we smiled

The music started playing... and we walked up to each other

And we danced, yes we danced

In a room filled with young lovers ... there was only you and me

And we kissed, yes we kissed

Bourbon hours

I’m looking forward to more than winter seas
Young and warm we sat across the barn
Bristled against the ground, crushing misted leaves 

Yesterday I slept cold and worn
If I leave you now, we may never be
I’m growing fragile as my nights are torn

She says she’s coming home tonight
I guess she’s got no better place 
To roam tonight

I often wonder why you stop and go 
Relaxed against the soil, never mind the snow
My eyes may close, awaken, surely your to go 

Within the wind, we live, we mend
As the night begins, we start to end
You rub my chest, you tell me morning comes

She says she’s coming home tonight
I guess she’s got no better place 
To roam tonight

I think she sees me write 
Empty songs 
For lively nights 

I hear them speak, they say we could never be
But here against the wind
There’s only you and me 

She says she’s coming home tonight
I guess she’s got no better place 
To roam tonight

The American Legend

Soaring high, as the American's eagle pride higher now than ever before once more, elevated nearly every last peak how to mistreat the meek, weak unguided son why can't you offer unrequited love to everyone? oh, lord save me I cannot escape the agents that take hold of me, they surround me... So I levitate up and unbounded seems I've once again found it an escape, from an uneasy paradise This burst explosion A never ending love-peace energy welling up inside me like an underwater atom bomb forever and ever I shall go on accordingly unknown An art recession? let me make a correction this boy's a legend from birth on up banging hard breaking his way through the wall life can sometimes often throw up come crashing hard on the ground I wake knowing the feeling to lose everything except from what I learned from well known legends who made the wings I fly high on

Still I stand

            Still I stand
Like a soldier man,
gone far away on a  war,
I am miles away from home,
In diaspora I was found wondering,
Like a man on a mission,
It like do or die outside of home,
Passing through a lot just to survive,
Faceing the  challanges from unknown culture,
dealing with a  tradition not familiar to me,
Struggleing to speak a new  language,
Solving the daily matimatic of my day to day bills,
Where the ladies with hills always wanna feel a taste of my blackmanba,
Is not an easy road, 
When you pass through challenges out of home,
But Despite all,
Still I stand



Every morning I wake up with a defferent mood,
Every night I go to sleep with worries,
Everyday I struggle to make a living,
Worries about my beloved family always in my heart,
How are they doing?
A question I ask myself,
 by myself in my mind all time 
Every Christmas is like a normal 
Day for me,
But Despite all,
Still I stand 



I work my ass off day by day,
Night by night,
My feet hurts me while standing hours,
in the midst of tourist on the high streets,
Watching the people passing by,
Some friendly,
Some not,
I hate my job,
But I got to survive,
Incase if you need to know, 
But  despite all,
Still i stand



My emotion shakes 
Where It  suppose to hold me strong,
My hope fail when my desire is somuch in needs,
My passion drive me on a confuse state,
Cos! everything I use to know was about to change,
In a tinkle of an eye,
Just like a time bomb!
But Despite all,
Still I stand 



I keep moving like am unstoppable,
I keep on sounding brave like am untouchable,
I keep on smileing like life is so good,
I keep on living  like life never end,
Is all about life,
Is all about struggle,
Is all about survival,
But despite all,
Still I stand.

To keep the sun to our backs. (This epidemic is epic!)

I can finally believe that the sun shines beyond those clouds
To signal the end of the shade 
Uncovering the world’s insecurity’s

If we can find solace in somebody we’ve never touched
Their words enough to give us hope
In a hopeless race
The means to turn the page
And start the next chapter of the book
To move on holding hands

Marching as one into the sunset
Into the title waves
Into the hurricane
Making the best of every moment
Dancing in the wind and rain

To move on hand in hand

Ecstasy of Emotion

Here we are, the time is now,
Looking in your eyes flashes all the memories somehow.
Its just you and me alone in the crowd,
In our own world with no intruders allowed.

We should leave, walk away,
Coz my words have nothing more to say.
Holding your hand the time holds its motion,
Like a timeless orb flowing with an ecstasy of emotion.

It is getting harder to desert myself from you,
My broken and lifeless world consists of nothing new.
Yet I hope to give it all in your hand,
Fetch a diamond for you from my world of barren land.

I cannot walk away and leave you there,
But I don't belong with you or anywhere.

symphony from tomorrow

Like a story told
You’re nowhere near my love
An adventure in a rodeo
I can see No further
Than the sun sets before me

And I’m all yours 
Just broken in particles
And you can’t be 
More than I wished you were

Yellow lines
Caution lights
Nights
I wished 
You weren’t so far away

Vacancy
The shadows that shelter me
And when I’m all yours
I can only ask for more

And as we be 
You should be used to me
And now you know
I’m no better
Than I was before

And this can’t be
I’m used to you holding on
And I’m all yours
Like yesterdays fall apart

Maid of Orleans

There stood Joan, “The Maid of Orleans”-
Brave, full of wit, modesty and simplicity!
Being tried by the rascals of the Church of England for heresy 
And lay in their hands her night or day;
Oh, the young warrior toiling for dear life!
So young, yet deeds of height for the Kingdom of France, for her motherland;
The voices of the angels moved her to the field where she killed,
Took up the sacred sword and swore by God, for God, for France;
Oh, young lass, now betrayed by the King!
And here on that fateful day,
Sacrificed in the flames and
Done to death a martyr,
A young warrior, a daughter, a lovely soul—Joan of Arc!

My Surrender

Make me go to sleep 
Make me close my eyes 

As I take some time 
I surrender my habits 
Bless the lender 
of my worn fabrics 
Just once more 
a peaceful day, what a delight 
A soothing melody 
buries the night 

Make me go to sleep 
Make me close my eyes 

Does it feel like prison? 
For I cannot remove you from my thoughts 
If you will listen 
Your kindness burns my scars 
Like crystals of salt 
As I lay ill sipping this pure life 
I only ask 
How much more can you endure my wife? 

Make me go to sleep 
Make me close my eyes 

If you can bring me to my knees 
I am yours 
If not 
I remain a lost soul at another door 
I live life ugly, give me death 
I laugh at strangers 
In one final gasp
I am Your Saddened Angel 

Make me go to sleep 
Make me close my eyes

Remembering Punk.

  As I was coming of age,
  punk was all the rage.
  The older generation,
   had the Beatles,and Stones.
   I had Sexpistols and Ramone's
   Sham69 and the Clash,
   the Jam and the Dammed.
   They would strum their guitar's so fast,
    sing so loud,
    some times spitting in the crowd.
    The message was loud and clear,
     anarchy is here.
    It was not all so obscene,
   a woman called Debbie Harry ,
   came on the scene.
    A woman with blond hair,
   and such an erotic air.
   I had pictures of Debbie on my wall,
  for her; I would have done anything ,
   anything at all.
 With her band Blondie they had a good sound,
  turned the punk world upside down.
 "Atomic, "Union city blue"
  "Hanging on the telephone",
  to name a few.
  Her music I still hear,
   remembering memories dear.
  I know she is older today,
   but she sill has the erotic aura,
     of  yesterday.

Additament Amour Apier

We could have been together build bridge out mountain
When it rain been the clouds for stormy weather
Looking in your eyes sometimes it like a reflection of you and I
Questioning where did we go wrong

This three words do they mean anything in this world any more
In this world how many lovers will one take 
In this world how many will be a soul mate
In this world how many will be the one
Questioning where did we go wrong

Cause you gotta to be the one that you comes home to at night
Gotta to be the one that open doors to the bed at night
Gotta to be the one that you tell all your friends about
Tell me if I wasn’t the one

Thoughts of us together cares one another day to day it’s you it’s you it’s you
Whatever should I do it’s you it’s you It’s you
To make it work can I be truthfully-

“If love is the answer, could you rephrase the question?”
Cause I'am a Firm Believer It’s you it’s you It’s you  
Questioning Where did we go wrong

Gotta to be the one that you comes home to at night
Gotta to be the one that open doors to the bed at night
Gotta to be the one you tell all your friends about
 Tell me if I wasn’t the one

I miss you I love you where do I start I always put you first
No matter the weather no matter the season cause all things will come to a end
But what I learn to ask what are we working for in life
And what I learn to ask the most important question then falling over the words-

You are pushing me to be a better me I’m growing to extend that most mean fail to admit 
I’m learning to listen rather then be submissive
I’m learning to wait rather then to question
Careless whispers in the dark where did we go wrong

As I sleep reach out at night and I know you’re doing the same because of our life style 
Dreaming is not a good night kiss but the reason behind a brand new day 
And if I falling may I fall in your arms cause home is where ever UR
Tell me if I wasn't the one-

The King Of The Outcast

As I sit here and I unfold the story of my untold past 
I realize what I am..what a monster..A king of the outcast
And if you start to doubt me on my words, think about it what do you really know about me besides my name?

Dead weight is what a man chooses to drag around,the burden the problems and frown all come with my throne and crown.
I'll take it all both mine and their falls,i'll carry the cross of light onto the path of right,

Throw it on me i'll be alright a word to them,I promise I won't fail,I won't fall tonight
Throw it on me i'll be alright a word to them,I promise I won't fail,I won't fall tonight

The king of the outcast is what I am,Stranded in a fearfull land,surrouded in darkness in the black sands.Look at me for what I am,What a monster..a king of the outcast

Throw it on me i'll be alright a word to them,I promise I won't fail,I won't fall tonight
Throw it on me i'll be alright a word to them,I promise I won't fail,I won't fall tonight
 Long live The King of the outcast....

my favourite movie

A rabbit lost
He has nowhere to go
He only has one shot
But will he blow?

He needs to provide his family with food
Not the type of rabbit inside a cage
He has nothing to lose
Except his nerve on stage

He knows what he wants to say
But can’t come out with the words
With his friends he can rap away
And they love everything they heard

He’s lost himself
Everyone thinks he’s odd
Constantly fighting with his mum which doesn’t help
And he’s close to getting sacked from his job

Constantly writing words onto a page
Away from the crowd he’s as sharp as a blade
You can see his pain and feel his rage
But he forgets his words on stage

His mother gives him a car to help him travel
But it breaks down
He decides to go to the rap battle
And tears the stage down

He never fitted in
But now he knows where he belongs
You can’t help but to respect him
Because he forces you to lose yourself in his songs

You probably guessed from the clues
My favourite movie is 8 mile
Probably because Eminem is my idol 
I’m off to watch it because I haven’t seen it in a while

Artemis (Sleeping Beauty)

Such a divine moment, 
I've lost my self control
Such a divine moment
Dwell before your holiest of alters

I'll sell my self esteem
I'll sell my soul
I'll sell my honour
Just one taste of you

So pure, and such a rare token
A dollar right in time
So scarce, and such a rare beauty
Stay frozen, still still, in the quiet of times

When I look through,
I can see you naked by the oblivious
And you don't see anyone
Just a reflection in a mirror of mistruths

Is it too hard to ask you
Sleeping beauty?
We're both drunk on egos
Truelly I could make it right if I wake you up

Come into my world
Breath
Come into my world
Breath
 
But I can't help but I feel a little bit curious
About your amends
So glad to see you well
But I have to see what is beneath the halo

So glad to see you well, but my friend, is nothing
What you kept behind the eyes of the spiral
What you didn't keep behind the eyes of a falling spiral
Now everyone has found out back to the sleeping beauty

On the wrong side of the door to paradise

Do you remember the way to eden? 
I haven't been there lately-
inside the whole time
and I'm a thousand miles away
I need a perch to land on, a branch to alight
I'm being tossed about in this whirlwind called life
caught in yet another of life's tempestuous moods
yet theres memory of peace inside
I can see it through the keyhole
in vain I search for the key 
(I used to know)
but I've misplaced it
I should take better care of such things 
before they become lost,
put them back always in the same place again
so I know where to find them
when I need some peace of mind
in times that I am trapped on the other side- 
a bird that flutters its wings uselessly outside the door
able to see inside,and still wondering 
what is holding me back, 
keeping me on the wrong side of the Door to paradise

Sandbox Love

She was my sandbox love,
When we were just kids
The one I dared to eat dirt
My hero, when she did
My enemy, when she said
Your turn now and I double dog dare
You eat some dirt 
And that dead worm over there

She wore pink tennis shoes,
And her hair in pigtails
We were dreamers with wings
living life on a dare
My sandbox love and I
Testing our limits, 
Running wild and free

Little girls  play dress up,
Boys just destroy things
She’d say,  I am  Princess,
 You are a Prince
I  had a smile on my face
Thinking of  my sweet revenge
The next day I’ll be a firey dragon,
 she’ll be a witch, that I’ll eat end

There in the sandbox, we gave our spit pledges 
Promising each other, our love would last forever
Her family moved away and I’d not seen her since
But I honor my pledge each day I reminisce
My sandbox love,   you -  I’ll never forget

too far near for change

Don’t you see where you are 
There was a time you wouldn’t tolerate
People thinking for themselves
You pass your judgments
And you made decisions to never last 

You were the dominant voice
The ideology behind every mans choice  
You believed in what you knew 
And you knew no more than what you were told

We’ve come too far near for change

You were the leader
You were a generation of unopposed cheaters
You assassinated 
You told stories of finer fabrication

You fought for patriotism, you fought for pride
Seldom did you put your integrity aside
You made no rights to be considered civil
You preyed on anyone who was thought to be liberal

You expressed your Marxist theories
You denied the working class it’s values
You sat me on the back of the bus
You told your children to fear me

We’ve come too far near for change

You formed conglomerates
And biased political party’s 
In 63 you showed very little sympathy
Oh how you shook the wind from me 

You told me I was only a third of a person
You scolded that my days  would worsen
You defined anti-Semitism in less than four years
And before this, you path a trail of tears

Walk with me this way
You know things will not be okay
God bless a cease fire
For a present day Vietnam provokes war this day

We’ve come too far near for change

So mothers and children
Fathers and  pilgrims
Settle the sky’s 
For there are no frontiers left to pry 

The rivers in which you wade 
Have been drained too tire
From a followers coming of age 
Script your life, live your days 
Press your quill to this page

Is this what you ask for
A patent at your door
No more Marconi’s 
No more hero’s or displeasures
Only a world lost and lonely 

Are we too far near for change

Hope (I'm Wide Awake, The Dreams Are Gone Part 2)

We haven’t got long the daylight is coming
Creeping through the curtains disturbing this sleep
The morning has broken this dream turns to ashes
You smile it fades like an old photograph
But worry not lover for ill be back soon
When night has fallen by the light of the moon
But before this is over just one final hope
That when I awake ill see you
Someday soon

Decorations


Another spring season of love has emerged,
Her eyes have turned to blue lakes merged;
Like the assertion of heavenly angel’s wing;
Birds of love; their voice may rise to sing;
The ocean has deepened with full of pearls,
Her sweat has melted into salt of life souls;
Stones were sharpened to silvery, from mine;
her shaped body , now decorated  to shine!  .

October Breathes

October loves me
September baby
Virgo across its face 
Out of it’s play pen
This child 
decides to spin

In a vacant scenery
Thinking back
On what yesterday 
meant to me
He’s going on
It won’t be long
As he’s carried home

Don’t you love me sober
Days I’m drifting
Along In October

She just sits there
Someone hold her
Kiss her sober
Missing all the fun
Just growing older

Flowers ale
Roses 
Paint you pale
Broken, shapeless
Only strangers notice
The rain 
That follows hail

Jesus Seekers
Leaves bristle 
Against 
a fallen preacher
your father’s gone
Running home
No ones worried 
That your gone

Don’t you love me sober
It’s almost over
For days I’m drifting now
Alone in October

My Song

This song I hear is not my song.
The melody is all wrong.
Sure, good things are done
Solid and strong.
But there is no glow,
No blessed gong.

The trouble is we walk through life without rhyme
Trying to create one, through time,
And our definitive dispatch of chords and strings
Are set aside so often,
So something else sings.
Yet nothing is ever entirely lost,
All songs being one (I tell myself, at least,
Through the shuddering whispers of the night,
Through the breathe between each Broadway 
Beat, shoe by shoe, eyes by eyes).
But ache and desire burn like licking flames
Above the mass of sound that beg and peel against your ears
And all you can think to think, is the sweetness of your own
Sound. The sound of your song.
And how they would love to hear it
Poured out all wrong and strong and perfect.
Perfect like you and all else,
Like hawks and leaves.
Like hands and knees.
Hold your note as you hold your heart.
Leave all bare, set nothing apart.
Sing your song. And sing it strong.
And end with no rhyme at all.

Penniless and Cold

I didn't want to ask you and I'm feeling very strange, I've been searching all my pockets, looking for some change.
My wallet is empty and everything went wrong, now all I have is my guitar and this little song.

Now I'm feeling kind of rough, tomorrow's looking tough, I've reached the bottom of the bottle, I think enough is enough.

In a world full of riches, a palace made of gold
I sit alone with my wishes, penniless and cold.

Dock Of The Bay

Back in the summer of 69
                            I remember sitting on the dock of the bay
                                     watching the boys of summer
                                   build their love shacks love shacks
                                    girls were playing twister and
                                   sipping on pina coladas all day
                                     feeling kind of groovy  groovy
                                    I couldn't get much higher higher
                                     with these such good vibrations
                                     from the summer in the city
                                     way down in Key Largo
                                watching my beach baby beach baby
                                           from the dock of the bay

i-ca-ru-s

what does it mean to "scream"?
is it simply to raise your voice?
or is it something you do, not a sound you make?

It is not my nature. I won't raise my voice like that.
This is my "scream".

i'll put every ounce of my energy into my promise.
i won't ever give up! you can't make me!
even if i'm all alone, i'll fight until it's over.

there's an explosion in the sky.
god is dead! rejoice!
freed of your shackles of fairytales and blinded faith,
lead the way to a revolution!

This is my silent "scream".
My head held high, pride uncaged and diffidence slain.

as long as the chance exists, as long as there's hope
i'll keep chasing my dream
the day i made a promise to you was the day the cogs began to turn
the day when color suddenly burst into my life!
i know i won't emerge from the road unharmed
but, no matter what, i won't step out of the ring.

I Remember

I still remember 
The way your kiss felt
When your lips touched mine 
As if an Angel had just kissed me

I still remember 
The way your hands felt 
When they held mine
Tight enough to keep close, but not enough to suffocate

I still remember
How your body felt next to mine
So comfortable, so smooth, so right
As if we were one

I just want you to know 
I really miss your hand upon mine 
The way your kiss tastes 
How you looked in my eyes
I just want you to know
I love you

I still remember
The day I fell
The day "I Died For You"
You sang to me
As no one had before
And now I sing to you

I just want you to know 
I really miss your hand upon mine
The way your kiss tastes 
How you looked in my eyes
I just want you to know
I love you

I'm sorry I didn't know
Before I let you go
You mean the world to me
Although we cannot be
I hope you understand that

I just want you to know
I really miss your hand upon mine
The way your kiss tastes
How you looked in my eyes
I just want you to know
I love you

I love you, I love you, I love you

once longing love

This time your eyes don't seem to bare the familiar strength
you been staying away from me you've gone to every length
i did every thing i could to lend a helping hand
now your broken and its hard to under stand
this was no ones plan love makes harsh demands

even though i can see your heart is truly broke
when i tried to hold you i was just a joke
now things are changed nothing like before
i have become something so much more
a ache still nags deep within my core a life left in ashes spread upon the floor

i wonder where you ll go who you ll see
i wonder if the only thing you think about is me
the empty hole of things left unsaid
a wall of noise stands strong in my head
some how this feel like I'm dead but I'm watching in you go instead

how many times could i try to be the one you needed but i know it was the ego i feed ed
a callous soul without any notion of truth hope or devotion
farewell my once longing love

coffee and songs at 5 am

It must have been the sunrise
All the wrongs that I don’t see
The truths hidden within your lies
All the songs that I don’t sing

It must’ve been nirvana
For I cannot heal
And I can’t be your wonders
For I do not live

And heaven can’t have her
For angels do not kill
And Satan can love her
But he cannot feel

It must’ve been the silence
The doubt within your unseen words
If I could’ve just finished what i had to say
Everything you said I would’ve heard

After all of the shouting 
The commotion in your screams
After all your anger
Did you accomplish everything you knew

And heaven can’t have her
For angels do not kill
And Satan can love her
But he cannot feel

And it must’ve been the sunrise
How solemn you sat
And It could’ve been the song
All alone you sang

I’m not promised tomorrow but I am with you
A chandelier in her borrowed clothes
These are the songs a man sings to himself
Before the mirror breaks

"songs left within her despair"

in fields of grey

Like a wild flower in the rain
Sometimes you get desensitized
By the company you keep 
And you forget to be a genuine person

Just like the arms you lie within
Your body cannot do without a warm touch
Driblets, a breeze, triplets
It was all a spring time hush

Like a wild flower
I saw you making hail in the rain
And I won’t carry through my days 
Without you by my side

Rain drops on My Universe

Rain drops on my universe 
And I can’t tell you a thing
And the world just keeps on turning
 This cold house won’t sooth the pain

I saw through rose colored glasses
Cracking till I couldn’t see a thing
All the lights are blinking out 
And I’m fumbling in the dark

The world just won’t slow down
I’ve jumped the track again
My hair was so much longer
And I never believed in sin

Now it’s all a bloody mess
And the light is pouring in
Life is such a scary place
But I’ll pull back in the end

Tell me can you fix me hunny?
Pull me out in to the sun
You can’t begin to fathom 
When the paint begins to run

My room it has a black door
And I want to paint it red
Try as you might you never see
It’s scary in my head

Rain drops on my universe
And you tell my secrets one by one
And it all just keeps on hurting
Until my heart goes numb

Rain drops on my universe
‘Cause God is crying if she’s real
Everything is spinning now
But it’s okay ’cause I can’t feel

premonition

it makes me feel like dieing again
it pushes my thoughts aside
come on lets go for a ride
drown me in the water so deep
im dreaming please wake me from this sleep
out of time and out on my feet
  i had a premonition today
  saw my life flash and fade away
  theres not a word i could use to convey
  how i feel i think ive lost my way
crashing waves out back of my brain
i think ive lost my mind again
this is becoming a trend
down this road i twist and bend
to try and find you my friend
my broken heart i need you to mend
  i had a premonition today
  saw my life flash and fade away
  theres not a word i could use to convey
  how i feel i think ive lost my way
i bleed out but you see only scars
hear the screams echoing from afar
wide open space and all you see are bars
take my hand please show me the way
off this bed of nails in which i lay
take the edge off the pain of this day
  i had a premonition today
  saw my life flash and fade away
  theres not a word i could use to convey
  how i feel i think ive lost my way
i think i have something to say
im riddled with thoughts of dismay
set me free release me from this cage
  i had a premonition today
  saw my life flash then fade away
  theres not a word i could use to convey
  how i feel i think ive lost my way

Late

Here in my driest days
I can’t complain
Holding on 
To a piece of home 

How late my brother sings

As I wash my face
I put my hands in place
Inside my window pane
A perfect picture plain

How late my mother sings

How I wonder when
If when, this season ends
As I sip from my coffee cup
This fragrance loses touch

How late my brother sings

Up and down 
These county roads
Snowflakes tease
My driest palms
Within your hands I place 
My purity as a man and race

how late my mother sings

"songs from insomnia"

leave me to die

if not now, explain some other time.

i beg to differ
now im here forever
gone cause i was too much to keep

a december ballad

Do you ever feel as though
No matter what you do 
You’ll never be as good 
As those who’re viewing you

And the songs about the same 
To which ever day you move
Time grants you space to mood
And  melodies to sooth 

Yet you stand so far distant
That no one knows you’re gone

Having laughter next to smiles
Brings us back 
To being orphans as a child
I’ll sit next to you for a while 

Run, Run
As fast as we can
No one really
Can stand a plan

And no one knows you’re gone

Here’s to another chapter written
Impurities of a young one missing
Hidden beneath the stars 
I lost myself to comfort sitting at your bar

Stripped the strings from your guitar
Did you forget to show them your scars
Seems you’ve come so far
And they ask you, whom you are 

Still no one knows you’re gone 

“When all you have is you 
I hope you find yourself 
Along the way”

your poets eyes

Hours become distressed and tiresome
In all your filth 
You were some what admire some 
You took truth and distorted it 
Right before this poets eyes 

I was an idea stolen
A compliment sealed with in a comment 
I wandered about 
In a young mans season of doubt
I wrote sing songs
To sing my way home

I was a walk of lies
Before I became this poets eyes
I couldn’t tell her goodbye 
So I wrote her a note 

Accustoms of a hopeless man, shy
I couldn’t tell her the truth 
So I whispered to her good night
Eased away her helpless sighs

Sunday Carolina

My life’s apart 
My toes I’d touch 
But I could do 
Without the rush 

Midnight calls 
Again Liquor’s saved my day 
I see you not 
I guess I’ve lost my way 

Morning comes 
My coffee’s stale 
Let us 
Check the mail 
The door bell rings 
T-shirt with no jeans 

No class today 
Wide awake 
And I might not 
Last the wait 

This evenings cloud 
Have shaken my doubts 
I wonder 
If I’ll ever make it out 

Home from work 
Dreary eyes 
I lost my paintbrush 
In my shirt 

I’ve spoken soft 
Worded cloth 
But my quill 
Has written dry 
And to my dreams 
My days 
Might not say goodnight 

Lost my wave 
Astray in change 
There’s no tempo in this trap 
I am in dire need of a nap

Sing Me A Song Of Love

Sing me a song of love:
A song of passion,
A song of emotion-
One that's true and genuine filled with everlasting devotion.

Sing me a song of love:
One that is sincere, 
One with compassion,
One of truth-
One that springs from the well of hope, eternal.

Sing me a song of love:
One of deep admiration,
A song of purity, of commitment, of family-
That bonds and can not be broken by the chimes of time
A song of love in rhythm and rhyme.

Sing me a song of love:
One so strong that it rights the  wrongs and
Lessens the hurts of past disappointments and makes life worth living-
Never to be taken for granted or given up on.

Sing me a song of  everlasting joy, peace and love-
One that as a child of All Mighty God, I am so deserving of.

Hanging With The Moon

Hanging With The Moon 

Moving to the deep hollow 

rhythm of the double bass 

coupled the with

dance of the piano keys 

and the slow cadence of the guitar strum.

This Master of Jazz carries me away,

off to an old flowing riverboat,

cruising off into the sunset,

taking my restless feet with it,

so I can hang with the Moon,

for a while.

A Silent Connection

We cross paths
Our eyes meet
And for one quick moment, there's a bond
A connection so strong that words can't describe the chemistry between us.

But then it's all gone,
And so are you.

Death Blow

Mirror in the bathroom,
this makes no sense.
Like the glass top table 
in the room I rent,
or my credit card
with numbers white as snow,
the straw cut down
an eighth its size.
Our love affair is growing old
but I know you're in control.
She don't lie, she don't lie,
She don't lie to you,
so Clapton says,
but we both know
you're my only friend,
and with you I'll wind up dead.

The Soldier

I can see, that the sun is hiding it's light today
Through the thick black smoke, I kneel down to pray
The fire went out, that used to burn here in these hands
My brothers gone,  that stood with me on  this land

I could feel the suns warmth, this morning when I woke
I could  see it's orange glow, shining through the smoke
My band of brothers dead, as I'm left here all alone
And this coat I'm wearing, is blood soaked to the bone

I can  feel their eyes staring, as they take command
I can hear them speaking words, that I don't understand
And as I lie here bleeding, in the shadows of this tomb
I'm just another lonely soldier, pleading for his mothers womb

This morning I prayed, that I'd make it home alive
But over in the corner, I felt death trying to arrive
The tortured days are unbearable, here beneath this light
So I close my eyes, somehow that helps me fight

But today they broke my spirits, with a sharp searing pain
I tried to think of home, as I lie bleeding in the mud and rain
Then my mind snapped back, as I felt the steel of a cold sharp blade
Today the torture ended, as my world began to fade

I could  feel their eyes staring, as they  took command
I could hear them speaking words, that I didn't understand
And as I lie there bleeding, in the shadows of that tomb
I was  just another lonely soldier, pleading for his mothers womb

everything that won't come back

Do you know 
Where the wind blows 
How do you go
To where the wind blows

On accompany bound 
North Carolina found
Down the coast 
Out the window of a greyhound 
Day dreams 
Just won’t let me sleep sound

“Life’s a gamble 
At terrible odds
If it were a bet 
How would you take it” 
Up at the lighthouse
Lake Superior, I’m here
Skating across the ice
Minnesota’s lovely winter song
Downtown Duluth
Across the red bridge on my own

It was a five card draw
Cocaine in an empty mans straw
Little blind short
It was big blinds bluff
Inordinate of a pack of Newport’s
Fell in love waving goodbye at the airport

Welcome back home
Were you lost or alone
Because you’re no one 
Just as were when you  left 
Did you find your fun
Hitchhiking all by yourself
I made it back to peace 
On a coarse to no where 
Fresh out of  Love Joy, Georgia 

Do you know 
Where the wind blows
How do you go
To where the wind blows

Muted Song

Make me feel extraordinary once again
Please don’t notice the scars upon my soul
The light is slowly dimming from my mind
The angels have long stopped their redeeming call 
But I am colour blind to your pain
I couldn’t see all of the blood upon the floor
This feeling inside is so out of control
I can no longer see what exists behind this hidden door

But I didn’t come this far to drown
To fall, to stumble, to break down

This is my muted song
This is my wordless scream
Let me fall and bump my head
Wake my up from this living dream
My mind is fast outrunning me,
I think I’ll miss it most of all,
Spin me around one more time
Stop me before I start to fall.

My heart cannot sing for you no more
The rip goes deeper than you know 
I have to pretend that it doesn’t hurt
The words, the smile, are part of the show
The clothes on the floor don’t belong to me anymore
I outgrew them long ago like I out grew you long before
But I’m still trying to make you see through this mess
That looks go far beneath the surface

But I didn’t come this far to drown
To fall, to stumble, to break down

This is my muted song
This is my wordless scream
Let me fall and bump my head
Wake my up from this living dream
My mind is fast outrunning me,
I think I’ll miss is most of all,
Spin me around one more time
Stop me before I start to fall.

Last Time

Last time you broke my heart, 
You shattered my dreams and tore my mind apart, 
Last time I said I love you 
You pushed me aside and wouldn't let me hug you, 
Last time I tried my heart died! 
But like all walls fall, 
You beat me down and I crawl, 
This will all crumble as hurt feelings rumble, 
This won't be the first time I was dissed, 
And it won't be the last time you'll be kissed, 
Call for comfort speak for misery, 
It all fades into history, 
Last time I apologized it was my lies, 
That made you realize it was my fault, 
Last time we took a walk, 
We heard everything in silence cause we wouldn't talk, 
Last time I wiped your tears, 
You had a tender heart my dear, 
As you were sleeping, 
I thought of leaving before weeping, 
As you turned over, I asked myself was it over? 
Or was I just a crying shoulder? 
As the night got old I pulled up covers, 
It seemed you were cold, 
As I saw my reflection, 
I realized I was lost with no direction, 
As I sung the sad song, 
I thought about what could've gone wrong, 
As I turned around on bending knee, 
Not far from the ground I erased a frown, 
Last time I fell for you, 
It was a forgive me letter I had to mail to you, 
Last time I took a look at the pupils in your eyes, 
It was feelings disquise, 
Last time I said I miss you, 
I wanted to kiss you, but didn't wanna risk you

Brutus (from Scenes from Above)

To the end my friend!--- Caesar says 
My lord this is as far as we go, --- Brutus says 
To the end my friend!!! --- Caesar yells 
This is as far as we go --- Brutus whispers 
When the east meets the west, 
And the beast meets the best, 
When every issue is well addressed, 
There still stands a test, 
Friends become unholy angels, 
Family member exist as strangers, 
TO THE END MY FRIEND!!!! 
When the storm sings, 
We'll see the envious ones concern brings, 
In the mist of things, 
Seems like the fist for things, 
Words are precious, 
Put your hands together, 
And see how far trust can stretch us, 
I am your blood, your, Adam, your Eve, 
Excuse me madame, excuse me please, 
Pleasure is hate, 
When treasure is confiscated to soon or late, 
In my palms I hold your hope, 
Tragicly my necks rope, 
A bar of murderous soap, 
I am Caesar, 
Cry with me mother, 
I am Caesar, 
Die with me brother, 
To the end my friend, 
My lord this is as far as we go

everyday kings

I’m no king author
But I’m an author of my script
He rides and I write
To tell you what days might be like
I am at your disclosure
Un-expendable 
but humble in my composure
The kiss of allure
Blissful and pure
How much more
Might we on this journey endure
I was once a written testament
Now I write when it’s best I vent
Brandy on a sunsets portrait
With all this said 
I am your’s unfortunately
Sadly a pioneer to keep
A lung punctured and barely breathing
A mothers sore beyond her bleeding 
Keep your depths in confinement
She was a touch of blueberry
With a wine’s scent
Life can be brutal at times
Did you think I’d lay 
And never awaken
Awaken never to lay
It’s been an honorable stay
Perhaps I was awakened too late

This is for the last good night
Sleepless in my last good fight
I am sure to be alright
Sleepless on this last good night

Alanis morisette

I know you got my letter 
from years ago
the one about all my problems 
and the crush i had on you
about my dresser and my mispelled name
and what slide meant to me and why

I should be accountable
but im not sure what im supposed to do
ive heard you
and understand your sick of your voice and why
ive even tried joining your fan club
but i think that fell through

I told u about my friend sherri shepherd and her family
and how they blindly ylead eachother 
but im not allowed to be her friend

Im not sure what id do if i was in your shoes
recieving a letter from a child fan
telling a stranger their suicidal tendencies
and molestations and abuse at home
and their witchcraft circle and strange experiences that involved
making love to a famous artist before their career had changed

Alanis
its like unexplainable to me
what you are
a reminder of a mother figure i never knew
a saving grace when the angels seemed soo far away
and i understand all of ur lyrics from im not ur mother 
i diont carry you in my womb for nine months
to not the doctor
and now i wonder if im like an adopted 27 year old 
life lesson 
object to crave 
side project 
toy
you never wanted but got handed
and passed with flying colors

even though a few of your lyrics are two edged swords
im not sure what i wrote and sent off to you
but by the time you read it and wrote that song a lot had changed

i spoke of love like yours
and the help i needed and how i was fascinated with you
things i needed help with no one else could
i dont remember what i wrote
i think i wrote marilyn manson one too

Thank you
we bruised eachother
and i know you did a lot more for me
an object to crave?
its there u know...and it might not be me
but if u want one and u cant find one
i can help u look, or show u places to start

life is strange
i cant fathom the loops we sent eachother through
and who knows what anymore
but thank you soo much

I found the power to turn beauty to a pig.

As we sit at the edge of the bridge
Do you expect me to jump?
I found the power to turn beauty to a pig
and my methods are out of control.

I only pushed you away cause I love you.
I only hope to satisfy your smile.
In a world with endless possibility .
Is it possible to make this worthwhile?

Maybe I fight because I'm used to playing the victim.
Either way what kind of savage am I?
I'll put this switchblade through my  neck.
If I knew it could keep you from crying.

I Love feeling sad does that make you sick?
I find love in being sad haven't you noticed.
I love feeling sad does that make you feel sick?
Now step away.


I only pushed you away cause I love you.
I only hope to satisfy your smile.
In a world with endless possibility.
Is it possible to make this worthwhile?

The dawning of the last day was a massacre.
Is there nothing I can do to make this right?
I eight balled the neglected.
and I wonder why she hates my eyes.
No blood loss nothing left to lose.

Yellow Cloud of Myth (Angel of Sadness)

Dancing strong is my yellow cloud of myth
To whom do I belong?
I want to say to this yellow cloud of myth
It was all an opportunity for a higher grade
Musical appreciation, I guess I’m now finer behaved
I met her my freshman semester
Through her eyes I see stress can bless her
On her toes, for she prefers both highs and lows
I guess I never paid her much attention
In the arms of a future friendship
This hazard could have been a crushed prevention
But dancing strong is my yellow cloud of myth
To whom do I belong?
I want to ask this yellow cloud of myth
She kept it real
As if she were an addiction I repped her pills
And as I entered this auditorium
I could see on their faces this was boring according to them
As I took my place among my college crowd
As if I had a sense of humor
I smirked as I thought of mythology a loud 
As the play continued 
My weary eyes searched the menu
And just as I began to gnaw away
Like a cloud of darkness she flawed my day
There she was dancing strong
This yellow cloud of myth

such was the lives

Such was the lives of frost, matthews, crane and so on and so on
As I read the short biographies of each
I am astonished by the depression they felt
The sorrow they wrote
The emptiness of home

Their poetry so emotional,
Controversial ,
Full of the truth

We remember them for their accomplishments
Not for their misfortunes
It's just sad to read about them

Tears from Your Eyes (Seasons Finale)

The future through my palm pilot 
Strategizing my future 
Through this invincible organizer 
Murder reigns 
But I’m seeing true life through my murky visor 
Simple prayers, hopes and wishes 
Sympathy in a blind mans kisses 
Pay attention and we notice 
Without misery it’s so hard to focus 
Pleasure of being decomposed by flesh eating locust 
The battles in this life I lead 
Shadows in the night twist and turn in greed 
It’s all fun and games until we bleed 
Senseless, Ain’t it something 
How we became a dying breed? 
Tears in your eyes, baby girl its okay to cry 
Life isn’t promised and someday we all die 
Second chances taken too lightly 
I reckon you advance in prayers nightly 
Shattered glass, invisible window 
So insensible, the images that exist through Nintendo 
Stress keeps my heart pumping 
Guests leap and start to mumble 
Ah disgusting maggots, sour dough and dumplings 
Poverty and a bumpy road to recovery

Prelude to abrasion

Of all the things I could mean
The little dreams we come to be
Beneath the porch lights dim
My mind begins to wander slightly grim

And if you can’t help me seem
A little less worried now 

I touched your lips this morning
And walked out on life
Broken beneath a crush
I sat out all night

And if you can help me sing
A little less worried now 

Up and against the dawn
If you could help me settle in 
A single gasp to bring me to my feet 
No reasoning beyond this measurement

And if you can’t help me seem
A little less worried now 

Dianna, sweetheart
They let me know of your fatherless damn
Your savior, your breaded Jesus
That’s not who I am 

And if you can help me sing
A little less worried now

Endless

As we recount the endless days
the time will stop for none man says, endless, conversation only knows 
the grace is when the spaces grow, endless, 
i believe the words i fear,
i also hear the sound of constant silence 

i am the prism in the middle of a colour wheel
light shines through me
i am the hologram of all that is and is not here
time shoots through, you

head down and aching
i lower down to pray 
a miracle will save us
miraculous this day

lay down and take it
a mind of purest light
enough to shatter through the darkest night

gold along the road must lay
know the time as your pathway, endless,
a vision of a quantum light
to magnify the task as right, endless
people are supposed to be to represent humanity as, 
endless,
for those who are to serve us right
remember that it’s not your fight 
it’s endless.

Your Song

There is satisfaction
So bittersweet
That though you sometimes hate me
You are still in love with me
You will fight it and deny it
Perhaps say it isn't true
But I can still connect to you
And can feel it shining through
Sometimes I feel you in my head
Even when another is in my bed
I can roam around inside the safety
Of the love we exchanged
And the memory of it lingers
I use it to be what he deserves
There is no reason, no denial
The memory is for my own survival
I stand firmly where I do belong
He sings the words, but you wrote the song

MADEMOISELLE MYSTEREE...

Lying there, with another
I sought the girl-of-my-early-summer-dream
I kissed her once, twice for gleam
Only to find, she’s not in my reality!

Ah! Mademoiselle Mysteree!
All heavens know that I’m her dreamer
I- who took her for all I saw:
A set of eyes
that sang, sweetly in silken-skies
With luscious-lips,
made for the moon- mild and mellow…
Her sacred breasts-
The curves, in charms for cheered-conquest
All hips and thighs,
each to explore my Ecstasy!

Sitting there, in my reverie
I crave her whisper all day long
(My night) simmered in shivery-song,
yawning for sips of her morning-glee
and to be blessed by Mademoiselle Mysterey!

Standing there, standing still…
Where I met her once in time past
I kiss her once, but never twice
Since she baptized me in her silence
Then, now despised me
just for believing her!

The Birds

They say that life is one big mile,
measured by the increments you choose.
If I ever met a cat who went by feet,
I'd like him to take a walk 
in my doozin' shoes.
Cuz' the bird outside my window told me
life's too short to fret and give a damn;
told me it's all about the inches,
anything past is but a ripple in the sand.

There's something to be said about the birds, they fly
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly
The bird's fly high, and kiss the sky
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly.

They say that life is one big labyrinth,
it's all about the corridors you choose.
If I ever met a frog who found his pad,
I'd like to take a walk in his
oh so salient shoes.
Well, the bird outside my window told me 
life's too short to fret and give a damn.
Told me to play my own music, all the bird's
know life's just one enormous jam.

There's something to be said about the birds, they fly
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly
The bird's fly high, and kiss the sky
there's something to be said about the birds, they fly.

If I'm Not There I'm On The Way

You can see it gets cloudy when its about to rain
You can tell when its near morning in the country
When you here the birds sing
When you here something funny don't you just have to laugh
As long as you can keep track of your money
You don't have to be a whiz in math

And also it's almost a sure thing
When my baby calls I got the phone off the hook before it rings
I've got my shoes shined
Quite a few quarters  and plenty of dimes
It only comes once in a thousand life times
That a boy can find a girl who's good byes  are sweeter than most hellos'

I know the clock's hour
Grew up on the same block as the place
Honey you don't never have to say come on
Because you know 
If I'm not there I'm on my way

i am here

I speak for many
But not for all 
He was a military veteran
Awaiting a September fall
I put my song in your heart
My heart is your song
Until I crawl beaten
Back into your womb
Days they seem to stretch
For how long
Could I have been wrong
For how long

As I journey 
Through my darkest days 
Of sunshine
Nothing but cold winters 
On my mind 

Enlighten the darkest killer
I died of amnesia 
I don’t want to pray anymore
A forgotten ritual
Seen too many have-nots
Plastered to heavens doors
Remember me
For I shall not return
Remember me
A beggar at arms
Mother’s last scar 
Lost his soul
Seen it slither homeless
As I tempt passion
This cognac in a jar

Journey through 
The darkest sunshine
Nothing but cold winters
On my mind

Seventy-two on clear sheets
Father where can your savior be
Are you comfortably numb
Or numb and can’t find comfort
Living off the hand of a locust
An honest man attempting
To stay focused when hurt
Turnover and sleep
The piano speaks to me  
Violin creeping down my spine
Nothing but cold winters on my mind
As I journey through the darkest sunshine

Slipping Into Darkness (from Scenes from Above)

Once again I'm here to testify
Beg your God to bless my life! 
Senior citizens point me out as the devils advocate
So extravagant, A prisoner of my own arrogance
Passed a black rose and saw Satan blush
Harrassed so he chose hating a passionate rush
Satisfaction of seeing angels and demons lust
A mixture of culture
Draining elixir, like a blood thirsty vulture
From the bottomless pitts they've cursed this structure 
And now I'm slipping into darkness
And I can't sleep
Pleasant dreams were promises
But I've fallen to deep
Now I'm just a lost soul slipping into darkness
Beat every factor but death
The secrets that time won't tell
The shadows and spirits that greed won't sell
Bless the date of my mothers final contraction
Eager thoughts of an innocents gurls erections
Knocked down the door
And told her to
"Close your eyes and spread your legs for your own protection"
You gone take this and with no objections
And if I ever find you
I won't bother to creep up behind you
Splice your tongue, make you remember my mom
Pass the memories around 
Let em know you took advantage of a defenseless woman 
And left her in the lost and found! 
And now i'm slippin into darkness
And I can't sleep, I've fallen so deep
That now I'm slipping into darkness

Caucasian Jesus (Angel of Sadness)

On a mission to find and crucify this character
This savior, your white Jesus
Crusades tease my anger
Especially if the picture they paint
Is of someone it truly ain’t
Searching for my savior, your saint
Jealous that photo doesn’t please us
On a mission to find and crucify 
This image portrayed as white Jesus
Whether it’s good times or dark trials 
I bow my head and pray to this image of arched smiles
To this cross I was too, like you and you, dedicated
So many times I summoned your blessings yet you hesitated
The preacher always said
Only one hovers above my head
Snap shots of my flesh, never knew peace in this casket
Satan, my commonly know bastard
As an outcast, a lonely loser, I’m orientated
As a carefree orphan/foster child, I was educated
Forehead being massaged in olive oil
Faith suddenly falling after these morals 
In this church as one they pray
A sinner’s kiss, when it hurts, we fail to ask for another day
Entrepreneurs, now we outcast is crooked, but major
Writers imprint with real names of plagiary  
As government seeds we’re slayed together
As enemies and old friends
We schemed and played in weather
Scenes from my grave
Kissing toes, means goodbye, to them heavenly gates I wave
If I’mma make it to hell
No further questions, only tears stop me from being cremated
Fire and tropical storms, everything the sea hated 
Walk these oceans to calm these skies
He who looks from above teases my lies
Only as a mortal, matter seizes the eye

sleeping pills

Do keep your applauds
For I can do 
without them 
On this day 
I have so little to say 
That thoughts resist 
Thy compression
But do smile 
I adore the fragrance
Of your expressions
Tasteless 
All that I have not seen
Those misenchanted hours 
We so dearly looked forward to
Darkness, my flesh
A midnite sky
In broad day
An indescent delite
Do relieve me
Of this pathetic living 
For I couldn’t
Beg for it anylonger

Guilty of Pleasure

It’s you again, oh me, oh my. I’m blinded by…
Seeing nothing but an application of a relentless stupidity.
Oh my heart, and its restless inquires. 
First glance, from a stolen photo, first syllables, on the phone… I’ve fallen before.
But never in front of you.
 Revealed, unraveled, now I enjoy hearing the phone ring. 
I feel delivered some how, 
This is absurd? 

The coolest girl (Rizzo), turning into the band geek.
 I awake to thoughts of 
Life with your arms around me. 
It’s like I don’t have armor anymore. For my “amor”, makes me want to put down 
my sword.
You seek the real part of me, you see through my lying. I feel you.
In the air, my skin, you take oxygen from blood.

A sweet smell of butter cinnamon and sugar.
 Memories loading reflections of you 
Into my mind, 
Why do I crave you so? 
I adore my obsession, my one guilty pleasure. Holy sin, locked away from mine 
eyes
Just a window of opportunity is all I need, sacrificing and eating my morel fiber.
Because you are the only healthy thing for me.

chasing the end

you took my soul in arkansas
but i ran with my spirit to phoenix
you took the challenge to the chase
and followed me there

i fought it out with you for three
years never indicatiing that 
my soul was gone and you believed 
you owned me spirit and all.....

i wrapped my spirit tenderly and
tiptoed out to arkansas in my
old wreck of a car......had three
flats a long the way....but made it
anyway

i thought i had escaped you when 
i went to the breakfast bar and there
you sat all puffed up 
and laughing really loud and
saying....did you really think i couldn't 
beat that old car?

i couldn't even eat
i ran away very fast
when i realized that i
had my soul back

so no matter where you 
follow me, no matter what you say
or swagger, or talk, you 
finally lost all the way

the cost is almost unbearable
if i look at all the time at
once.  i never look back
because i can't make it 
go away.

i just go on and am happy 
for each day that goes
by altho there are sometimes
i cannot sleep as  for 
watching out that something
bad will happen..........and then with
a fresh afternoon nap i realize
i have nothing to fear anymore

then.......i plaster a big smile on
my face and keep my soul warm.

Holy Lord

There is a tear Lord that
Drop from my eye,

There is a tear Lord that
Drop from my eye

Guide me Lord through
This maze of confusion

I know you are the all
Mighty God

And will see me through

Slashing of the lightning

The angry roar of the
Thunder

Nothing falls short of your
Word  you speak

My bit of faith call out
With a tearful plea

From my sorrow and pain

I asked in your loving name

To walk with me, carry me

Through this old sinful
Time

“And Lord, Oh, Lord”

Oh my dearest Lord

Carry me

Over those time’s of trouble

Fill me full of your word to

Keep me holy both night
And day

Dry these sorrowful tears

And let them be tears of joy

Oh, my Lord make me
Holy

Oh my Lord, Oh my Lord

Guide me through this sinful
Era..

Let me sing the love of our father

And speak your word

I will keep your commandments
Written in my heart

Where I can always have them
Near to not be 
Forgotten in my daily duty

Just hold me Lord in your net
Of safety

Oh my Lord, You are truly to
Be praised..

I'm brain fried a drain dried step up to my main eye in the middle of my seeing stones I see your tone, its mellowdrone Neglected eclectic you seem so collective it seems so effortless the celebrated, all frustrated because they can't get any more wasted or useless I won't waste it on you, another thought I know I can't break through your drought I know I can't prove to you, it's rotten that doing the right thing is toughest often I guess I'm neglected, come from the collective and consciousness is overrated for the freest all sleep naked.

Rain Song

Standing in the rain,
changing from,
translucent
      to solid,
feeling the different
   sensations
       as the water
                  collects
and falls
      through my body,
  bliss takes over me
and I remember
          something from some songs,
5 to 1 baby,
      1 in 5
no one here 
     gets out alive,
this is the year
    that hope failed you
for I still 
   walk the Earth
and I won't leave
one of my victims deserted.

What I Call Home

Brought in close by those I love,
     during greatest times of need.
Home is not a place, but a feeling.
Surrounded by tender family and good
    friends, even if far apart.
I am comforted by their love.
Strengthened by the peacefulness.
A resting place from the turmoil of worlds.
That is what I call home.

tuesdays say it all

Morning songs
Coffee sings 
Stains of grey
Just tell me 
What it is 
You have to say
 
Our dawn is piercing
Time into
Can’t speak to split
For I’m overwhelmed
By the Saturdays fading
Amongst your 
Saddened lips 
 
So many times 
I left undisclosed
You seem to think
I’m at your door
But now I fear that
You may already know 
 
To and from
We start to go 
Hand in thumb
Summer birds 
They whisper 
As we hum 
 
Chew unto
I’ve lost my feet 
Became a statue 
Next to you
Two in two
We pair
unsowed in brew 
 
Today you’re gone 
Tomorrow’s loan
Again I’ll sing
Yesterdays song 
 
Can you think 
Of better times to come
I’m going there
Trying to reach 
What’s drifting down
They know where its from
 
Days, they fail
Afternoons 
No Sunday brunch 
Carolina’s after you
A duet to miss
Or hold it with 
I’ll tell you this

Unforgotten -2-

I've captured you from death's snare,
While others were unaware
No more worrying,
You are unforgotten

You are alive
Others deny it and leave the truth behind
Well, I most certainly know...
I will not end up in ruin

Instead, I'll remain loyal to you
because you are an unforgotten memory that changed my cruel ways
Straightening up my choices,
leading me to an easing and most pleasing place

Well...I certainly know, without a doubt, you are unforgotten
in my memory and best of all...in God's loving heart
You are forgiven in your trespassing mind that stumbles in repetitive sin 
 
You are an unforgotten cure to my throbbing pain
You're making me obsessive to you...sincerely insane

Though you're quite the catch 
in my sealed-up memory
You will remain
in a foolish mind 
fiddling around in flattering aspiration

You are unforgotten
In my flattered memory,
You are unforgotten 

You are a cure to my whole entire life,
unforgotten drug of mine

Forever Safe

She knew that he was leaving
They had a baby on the way
He’d definitely miss the delivery,
Most likely the 1st birthday
He knows that she’s a fighter
She’d have to do this one on her own
He was leaving to fight a war, flying out today
He’d call her when he could,
He would write her everyday ,
But most of all he’d pray to God
That if anything -  
she’d  be forever safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

The letters, they kept arriving
They made her laugh and cry and weep
She’d read each one again out loud 
Every night before she’d  sleep
Then there’d be a note just for the baby
Words of love sent from his daddy
Telling him one day soon,
Soon,  they would meet
After each letter she’d kneel and pray,
To God and the Heavens above 
Please God,  if anything, 
please keep him safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

He shouted words of love and encouragement
Through a static phone line that was fading out, 
He could hardly hear, with the explosions all around
She cursed him like a sailor ,
She pushed while screaming out his name
He said, I know that you’re  a fighter
Fight now and give him life
In the heartbeat of a second, 
The world went silent - all around
No more static on the phone line and
He heard the new life of his son cry out

A son and a soldier cried  together
A mother and a wife was in between
She said, my nose, your eyes
And he’s a fighter like his daddy
So, fight and come home, there’s someone you gotta meet
Just promise me,  you’ll keep yourself – safe

We do what we have to do
To live life,  to love
We’ll always fight for freedom
So the world is safe for us
And the love of our family
Let’s  pray to God each day,
That  he will always  keeps us
 -   forever safe

everyday now

Another day down
What to do with the time
Such a soft sweet sleep 
No one stays the same

All around you 
All I wanted 
All the turmoil
I can see no more

Life’s moving so fast 
I have got to catch up to it 
The reasons in consequence
Why are you so intense 

Of all the stars in the night sky
Is it me that you notice the most
Or have I lost you
Vacant and we were so close

Another day down
Don’t be so stubborn
No one sleeps sound
And it all ends the same

No one knows you 
And I’m just improvising
No one stays the same
Don’t you miss those days

Man Enough To Be Your Baby

Woke up
               Wanted to cry a rain
                              After a cloudy mind
                                      Found the time
                                                    To stake a claim
                                                             On a forecasted brainstorm
I heard the winds just a singing
    So suddenly 
                  A lovely prison song
                                   While I smiled
                                              Proud to be in the custody
                                                          Of my woman's arms
                                                                Cradeled and eased
                                                                    In her sleepless breeze
Slumbered
                     In the sheer comfort
                                                   Of she
                                                          It's just got to be man!
I believe it
   That this right here
            Is the strongest weakness
                 Known to anything 
                                That has had
                                              The priveledge
                                     Of breathing
                                           Frankly I'm just
                                                        Speaking of
That greater love that knows how to prevail
     That in which way after you've fell
The goodness keeps you on falling
          Dig what I'm talking?  Maybe.................

yours truly

There’s no sense 
In me loving you now
For the most of many days
I’m right here with you

For the reason
That old men know not 
The difference in wrong and right
The courtesy of my songs 
Has been driven polite 
For days in this night I couldn’t sleep 
Subsequent to headaches too hard to keep
Up an down this avenue 
Sometimes it’s the wrong wishes  
That are constantly grabbing you
Selfishly I’m never tired
Weary, I grow unwired
I know you think I’m lost 
No where to go
So it appears I’m chasing ghost
And these days everything seems scandalous
Out for every penny
It appears we lost a few too many
But don’t turn your back on the boulevard
As children
Days at a time we used to play in the yard
But you got to make a living 
So a brother’s on the re-up 
For the national guard
And my luck in this time is past par
And these days 
Everybody seems to know my name
Here, still I’m barely standing
So I hit the scene like celebrity
And you could see my followers 
Gather the fallen pieces of me
And though the past years been 
Like a step child grounded to the attic
Simply hella dramatic
I guess we have to move past it 

No need in loving me now 
I’m nearly gone 
For the most of many days
You were right here  with me

Ur Fallen Legend (Angel of Sadness)

So much happens when you’re away 
Things that make my composure tremble 
As I begin to say 
Moments of less triumph 
Suspend my stay 
Forgive me, for there’s become a trend 
In my time away 
Here’s ur rapture, ur Armageddon, ur fallen legend 
Arrogantly I want to be swinging 
Seeking revenge on my every adversary 
But realistically, from my own hemp 
I seem to be lingering 
Morning lights and hieroglyphics merely had me starry 
Blood line carries wine 
My resistance varies with time 
So here’s ur rapture, ur Armageddon, ur fallen legend 
Who am I? 
My reflection mimicked 
And murmured, I am you 
Only further from the skies 
It’s become a war, I cannot win 
Shield your faces 
For man trots again 
So here’s ur rapture, ur Armageddon, ur fallen legend

to your dismay

I saw a family starving, striving to survive
The father couldn’t get a job
Purses being snatched
The old man was too noble to rob
Passed two white children with dirty faces
Their smiles we’re worth a thousand daisies
Their hopes been misused, and abused
And it’s far from racial 
Because poverty doesn’t equal places
My stomach worries 
But my appetites been driven tasteless
I’ve been viewing your post 
Reading your comments
And at times it’s torment
I write to comfort my conscience 
But there are times 
Life can knock us unconscious 
I guess in this inhumane world 
We can only be monsters
You either move along or you are moved on
A response to value
To those who seem to want to sooth my songs
The poetry runs deep and touches home
Our most tempered moments unknown
Someone to carry you on, to and from 
My worries going nowhere
Thieves running with liquor
Lost on welfare
Trading stamps for clothes and worse
In case she wants to make a deal
She carries her wic with her 
And it seems no one notices anything 
Until it’s too late
Gunned down, hit twelve times in the back
No mercy, I guess it was a due fate 
It’s a constant battle of ignorance versus change 
Telling me not to hold so much hate
But it’s the resentment I feel
That’s why I’ll never change
And to whom shall I pray 
When it’s the same god 
Whom shelters my enemies

Don't tell me

It's not like I didn't try, 
It's not that I don't care,
But when I look your way,
It's hard not to stare,

The only job you have,
Is filling up my heart,
And when you quit on me,
My body can't start,

You tried to warn me,
But I didn't listen,
I should of known,
That something was missing,

In my head it worked,
But it didn't translate,
Just don't tell me,
That this was fate.

Illusive Muse

 Illusive muse
Where did you go
How long must I linger this time
Cruel sweet Mother of Songs
The wide eyed child poet waits
somewhere in a closet
behind the skeletons
behind the guilt
where confidence was spiders silk
and glistened with geometric truth
The muses danced around me
holding candles
they were dressed in primary colors
 they moved the pen
again and again and opened doors of ink
One by one they moved on
each waving goodbye as she danced away
Now I grasp at abstract straws
I milk the thick and drying sap
from strained memories

What was once a labor of love
now struggles to be a love of labor
I stare blank into a starving white sea

returning this 4 leaf clover to the ground so you can walk a

my sleeping problems have issues of their own
i've gotten so used to seeing the sun come up
i need the biggest night light just to fall asleep
too much on my mind and not enough anywhere else
feeling inadequate at even the simplest tasks
someday i just want to completly disappear
no more pressure, no more bad thoughts
i'd take these secrets to the grave if i could only get there quick enough

Acid Rain

Acid Rain

When I fall in love with you
I feel my heart is falling
But you've fallen for someone else
Someone who doesn't love you like I do

I see you falling for them one by one
But you're falling in a deep dark hole
I think you're blinded by what you see
And I know you'll never see the sun

Day by day
You cause me pain
Should I stop loving you
Why do I keep loving you anyway

You're burning 
Through me
And my heart
Like acid rain

I wish that you could just see
How much pain you're causing me
And I still care so much for you
Even after all you're putting me through

Day by day
You cause me pain
Should I stop loving you
Why do I keep loving you anyway

When you're just 
Burning through me
And my heart
Like acid rain

Is there something I'm doing wrong
No matter how many times I tried to stay strong
And everything I tried to hide
Is everything you should feel inside

Day by day
You cause me pain
Should I stop loving you
Why do I keep loving you anyway

You're burning 
Through me
And my heart
Like acid rain

Walking In Graceland

I'm moving up to graceland
you know that mansion over the hilltop
to have just a little talk with jesus
for I don't knock upon his doors
for I know the gates swing open
how great thou art
that we're blessed
in the wonderful grace of jesus
for it's written in red
as I was made a christian
and saw the light while
strolling down beulual lane
out in the sunshine
dear father in heaven
we all can do good
something beautiful
even a whispering hope
sitting down by the old rugged cross
take my hand
precious lord
don't leave me crying in the chapel
move me to your higher ground
crossing the river of jordan
fill my cup lord
to let me rise again
for without you I haven't got a prayer
so please take me as I am jesus
for I'll remain tried and true
for I know there's somebody bigger than you or I
in this wonderment of thy amazing grace

if my life is mine

I miss you like yesterday
But I figure that you’re okay
I’ve gotten this habit 
Of not meaning what I tend to say

I don’t bleed blue
For air feels me
Like disappointment 
Often chooses you

I made you read my life’s line
Now you lead my life’s line
I made you live a life’s line
Now you give a life’s time

I can’t stand sitting 
Alone at your table
I hate life because
Realistically it’s a fable
And too often it leans in your favor

I made you read my life’s line
Now you leave my life’s line
I made you live a life’s line
Now you give a life’s time

The moon if it’s rising
The tide is surprisingly 
A matter of circumstance
I can’t stand you 
Might I have this dance

With me you lived a life’s time
Now you lead a life’s line
I made you read my life’s line
Now you see my life’s fine
I let you see my life’s line 
Now you leave my life mine

When There is no Need for a Change

Brightness is there, no way, to be admired
No shine, rise and triumph  
The pleasant proceeding of happiness piled 
Light rays everywhere convey cheers 
Delightful showers poured   
Joy is same everywhere
No aspects of a feel compiled 
Nothing to lose 
No matter, why the fortune smiled 
No need to find 
Only sheer happiness sheltered 
No need to choose 
All over equality, no rules applied 
The state is constant 
Laughing, smiling not to be mattered 
No ambition, no desire 
Everything is there for you, already stored 
Your condition is absolutely stable 
No changes and nothing assigned  
For a feeling, is only for happiness 
Sentiments not to be bothered

Not Tonight

Just awaking in me to be something other than what I appear to be.
Placement productivity, because this is what I appear to be.
That sublime stature, of open emptiness, and lustful matter.
 That, 
“I keep it from you because I care”. 
You don’t want to appear harsh and unyielding, 
In your shielding the fact that you love another,
And I’m cool with that.

You see… I want something else tonight, 
Not to be the apprentice, to your significant other, I want something you never 
dare offer.
Incurable senitivity, showmanship ambition for me, a guaranteed,
Place in your heart, 
A place where I can lay,
In your mind, with room, and space to grow,
No… that’s right I don’t want sex tonight!

You might think we’re still living in the moment,
But we’ve been planning this all along; spontaneity was never an official issue,
Because it’s me, I don’t want the second seat, 
I don’t want to be turn into the “old biddy” teaching live seminars “for the sure-fire 
way to monogamy”.
So go home, run for that bus,
Catch that train,
 Before you miss that plane, because i don’t want sex tonight.

That touch I yearned for, was never the speeding ryhme, but that steal comfort 
that it’s going to last unequivocal.  
If I walk a hundred paces in from you, I don’t to have to worry.
And hurry back, because i can’t trust the silence any longer.
Play with my ears, the looking me in my eyes, kissing me with intensity, 
Is liable to increase my faith in us.

I want more, than appears to be here,
Devotion, extra attention, words that can send warm voltage,
To my senses
You have it in you; I just know that’s not for me now.

So I love you, I do, okay, but your sex don’t make me safe,
It doesn’t protect me from my conscience, when you leave.
So go home please!

A Parent's Advise

Chase down your destiny
Run down your desire
Teach your heart to hope a little
Teach your brain to cope a lot

Teach yourself to love a little
But don't be to vulnerable
Teach yourself to trust a little 
Teach yourself to pray a lot

I won't always be there to hold your hand
I can only take you so far
But I know one thing for damn sure
I'll be there to watch you walk

Race With the Devil (from My Secret Sin)

Come on and race with this heavenly devil
Watch as hail reigns on that holy umbrella 
You could never become a conductor of this level
I only race with the devil
I ain’t no sinner, but don’t judge me
Temptation drifts toward beginners 
Only trials touch me 
Alcohol and lustful trust all through your body
Like diarrhea gots a three year old rushing to the potty
Ghostly stats, bitter chit chats
Conquered maps bleeding on mats 
Hustler magazines, lonely couples addicted to claps
Strapped in lubrication
So I can live to climax another day
White around my nostrils
Maybe I’ll live to quit another way
Witness my enemies coming ever so toward me 
I’ll never live to see a better Hell 
For death has assured me
This is only a prelude to a dream
Pastors and priest 
Never hesitate to infiltrate my schemes
To get major means 
Reality floats above my vanilla sky’s 
My conscience tells me 
Gods screaming aquapella or at least he tries
Life has no scene selection or fend protection
Choices of a simple election
Hardships are our special features
Heaven and hell have never been  so neutral
So come on and race with this heavenly devil

Last Sail Burning

There was a fire on the pirate ship
Two parrots flew out like a whip
Returning they squabbled on deck
Feathers flew around—a shot!

The moon came out and drifted
With clouds moving to and fro
Bottles crashed and songs rose
The party continued all night

It was every man for himself
At sunrise a plank extended
The walker, blindfolded, landed
Head first on the ice—plunk!

It was a pirate ship, stuck
Bed of ice was all around
Middle of the lake
Far from the tropics

Lost and off course
They now burned
Their last sail
No wind

—Stuck!

Picture Me At Ease (Angel of Sadness)

Picture me at ease 
Think of me enjoying one last breeze 
The characteristics in my personality 
so hard to please 
Saturday mornings it’s Ric D’s 
Another mother 
trying to feed her family from her knees 
It’s all good in your eyesight 
But you and I 
were born to stand on the other side of right 
And I can’t reach for heaven 
For the statistics say I’m only five, seven 
I just want you to picture me at ease 
Think of me enjoying one last breeze 
Fact is after the hugs, kisses, and unfortunate risk 
Yes my dreams will shatter 
The past is made 
yet the future remains a broken pattern 
My only token is plastic leather, “Plather” 
I’ll be here, therefore and after 
Someone to grasp you, embrace your tears 
But picture me at ease 
Just think of me enjoying one last breeze 
And it’s the same depressing song 
That keeps us stretching past the wrong 
Smiles and guilt trips 
cause we are only stressing to live long 
Better yet it’s a blessing to rest at home 
My can tin’s filled with nothing 
My palms is blistered, my misery telling me to toughen 
I’m living to die 
So I don’t often bother with breathing 
Nonsense is adolescents teething 
But picture me at ease 
Think of me enjoying one last breeze

in my hands

I’ve got the world  
in my hands
I hope you understand
I’ve got the world 
in my hands 
Time for to make my stand

Left foot 
Conflict
Murky rivers
And washed away 
Soot 
A beginners fee
Listen 
And you will hear
The lasting cry’s 
Of a sinner’s 
Final plea
In merit
We cherish 
This burgundy 
Life
Equals stains of mercury
Polished soldiers 
Built within the words of me
Yet for so many days
They lone only to murder me 
How can we go on
In spite of those 
Whom wish us gone
As a nomad
On these evenings 
Of dusk
I roam 
Tomorrow 
Just may bring about
A place of fiction
A far way home
A similar addiction

Generic

No friends, no enemies.
This one walks among an unforgiving people,
thinks about the fantasy they live in,
strays away from colorful pretending.

He crawls, retreats,
becomes a prinla being void of all emotion.
Empty on the inside, hollow to the knocking,
dug into the deepening hole far inside the memory.

Sad to see another one
forced to run away from
those sick imaginative predators,
throwing books at you.

Come on, speak.
Tell them how you don't feel anger,
how you only want peace.
I'm sure they'll stop and really listen.

They'll push, reject,
keep living they're blissful ignorance together,
happy knowing whatevers catchy,
and lost to the challenge of the process.

Sad to see another one
forced to run away from
those sick imaginative predators,
throwing stones at you.

weakness

a moment of weakness
and you were in her bed
i was a thought in the back of your head
pounding to get your attention
now you've ruined everything we've had
was she really worth the trouble?
wroth all the tears shed each night?
and the broken heart you've caused?
for the moment of weakness
you've ruined five years of 
someone that gave you everything
that put here life on hold for your military career
shedding tears in her pillow
every night till you came home
now she's filling that same pillow
with tears once more
for your cheating heart

Trace of Sadness

Trace of sadness wracks your tear-stained eyes
and stream of sorrow creases your weary face.
You have been crying and you cannot hide it,
it is plain for all to see.

Now you know it is such an imperfect world,
yet, you just have to carry that heavy cross.
It is a rough road to the hill of Calvary –
Eden does not exist.

Sadly you wish for the past to return
to get away from your present trials.
But life isn't that way and you know it,
you just have to carry on.

So stand straight, bravely face the tempest,
with your pride intact and your head unbowed.
Wipe away the trace of sadness from your eyes
and find a different you.

Reasons Unknown

It's all a figment of your imagination
my whole vision is pure contemplation
I'm only half of what you see
None of what you heard
I'm married to the game
but i'm fuqing the spoken word
the asss and tits just for distraction
they give the perfect ambiance for fatal attraction
i wanted you to fall in love
i wanted you to want to fit between my hips like a hand fits in a glove
if the mic was a dic i'm masturbating it
given my best head using just my lips
the stage is the bed you want to lay on with me
but as big as my ego is i'm just as horny
I don't really want you as much as you think
what i really want is to fuq fight you with paper and ink
i'm using you for ya lyrics and you don't even know
don't take it personal i'm just a poetry hoe
Don't make promises that you cant keep
i don't want ya promises i want you to challenge me
you can have me phonetically i will be ya trophy
make me close doors and draw curtains like i'm going to confession
i want a standing ovation when we get through with the freestyle session
the reason is because i love ya mind
to me mind fuking you is as good to me as it would be to you if you hit it from 
behind
i love all the energy and creativity you put me in a daze
if i were to run out of ink you'd get your chance to lock me up in your sweet sweet 
love
for days
the reasons are many but the chosen are few all i want to know is this good to 
you?

Porcelain Midnight

Indebted to defining darkness
a fortress of pained souls crying a chorus
fearless and bonded by religious rites
reviving the dada movement fueled by absinthe
driven by inertia in absentia calling forth
dementia dripping with sorrow 
and steeped in anxiety to say nothing at all
as smooth as glass pitch black as night
my self loathing pity is as to death 
as porcelain is to midnight

to kiss an eternity

It's hard to say
I'll see you another day
But i love you anyway
To kiss an eternity 

I call it for a day
I live it for the rest of my life
Blessed it be the name you earn
Hours they now turn away
From his wife
Time sees changes
In a culture that prohibits 
It's strangers
Seeing the sun set admidst the fog
Autumn points one way
And winter just knods
It the simple things that pleasure us now
I saw it all on the way down
A structured goodbye
Live my life with in the moments that die
I couldn't tell you
For i could see a similiar reflection
Through your eyes
I sat, I stood tall
Over came the worst in situations
But I couldn't say it was all heart
An individuals stubborness influences his art
Sincerely I kept you above my chest
Some how my misery fell in touch with the rest
A softness that warmed my stress
The orange and burgandy that bleeds
Beyond the trees
And fades with in the skies
If I could take shelter amongst the clouds
I'd give pardon to my 
Following procedures in trial
It's become bitter sweet 
And hard to smile
Lead me not back to days as a child
I feel free and I hope it last a while 

It's hard to say
I'll see you another day
But i love you anyway
To kiss an eternity

Glory, Glory, Glory, Glory be to my mighty King for yes
In the Lord I have found my peace, and through Him
My one acrimonious release, and furthermore He is
the one that I adore, and for His goodness I will praise
Him for evermore, as in love with Him my Heart does sing
Glory be to my mighty King, and once more and 
Moreover, He has held me in His favor and for His Glory
I have found, His love, it does not waver and righteous
His mercy is just the thing, as my heart to him does sing
Glory, Glory, Glory be to my mighty King, and as to mine
My better favor it is the greatest gift in measure and 
as well for me and mine alone, my very treasure yes that
Of His saving grace, and as I rest up under the Strength
and Power of the Masters wing, for Him alone
My heart does sing, Glory, Glory, Glory,
Glory be to my mighty King.

Island of Darkness

She laid on the ground
watching him stand over her
He stood, not moving
She didn't know what to say or do
just wanted to take him in her arms
tell him it was okay
But he turned and
galloped away into the sunset
And she saw

Her knight in shining armor
galloping away
A knight in shining armor
galloping away
He left her there,
not rescueing her,
not turning back
Her knight in shining armor

He stood over her
as she laid on the ground
He didn't know what to say or do
couldn't say "I'm sorry, gal Sorry I did it"
He turned away
in shame and regret
He galloped away 
into the sunset
And she saw

Her knight in shining armor 
galloping away
A knight in shining armor
galloping away
he left her there,
not rescueing her,
not turning back
Her knight in shining armor

Years passed by
He got a new lover
She stayed single
waiting for her knight in shining armor
They moved away from each other
pretending not care about the other
But when she heard about his lover
she looked into the sunset
And she saw

Her knight in shining armor
galloping away
A knight in shining armor
galloping away
He left her there,
not rescueing her,
not turning back
Her knight in shining armor
left her stranded on 
the Island of Darkness

O' Holy King

O' king of the world
give me words to speak
words I would say
and can't take away

our beautiful king
our king of the world

O' king of the world
I will rise
for there's no looking back
as the lost get found
when you encourage yourself

our beautiful king
our king of the world

O' king of the world
I give myself away
while I'm waiting just waiting
to follow you

our beautiful king
our king of the world

O' king of the world
I desire more
for there's a hole in my pocket
and it's justified

our beautiful king
our king of the world

Son Rise (from Scenes from Above)

Wave goodbye Tomorrow 
Die, drown another victim in yesterdays sorrow
This is goodbye tomorrow 
No tides to borrow 
So goodbye tomorrow 
Yesterday gone, tomorrow not shown 
Today just a repetition of a sinners definition 
My hopes shattered 
How do I cope with my tears and matter 
Drooling of fantasy's when you had her
A poor mans paradise 
Adversity and no cares about life 
Living in hell and loving it 
Pivoting through bail and shoving it 
Shoulder blades cracked, collar bones crumbled 
Older, outdated, fact is to remain humble
Cemetery lust 
Post marriage life and fussing is a must 
Burning eyelids 
Is there even a such thing as baby's dying of SIDDS 
Irresponsibility, parent-hood and no agility 
Rapper and murderer's 
Yall are cursed, so don't even refer to us 
I'm blessed with stress, my life's a mess 
But for me happiness is only a test 
And when you see that sudden glow in my eyes
And the room flow's with goodbyes 
It will all come as no surprise 
That as I pray for tomorrow
I'll be taken before sunrise 
And maybe I'll get to witness again his Son Rise

Fatal Attraction

My love is everlasting
Sealed with such a passion
It comes as a natural reaction
When I see your face
My heart starts to race
One kiss of your lips, a small taste
Of heaven in my eyes
It comes as no surprise
That I can't deny
What I deeply feel
It is so real 
The whole ordeal
Of love that we share between us
I'm floating on a cloud of admire and lust
When I need someone, it's you I trust
That won't let me down 
I'm so happy that I found
You after I've looked all around
Still there's no one like you
That will ever take your place
Even when you are away
Out my mind I can't take
Out your face, it won't erase
With every minute, you're what I long for
You make me melt to the core
Just a little bit? No I want more
More of you and time to relax and
Cherish more of you I can only imagine
My love is everlasting 
Sealed with such a passion
It comes as a natural reaction 
This must be a Fatal Attraction!

the things you ask of me

Like childhood friends 
Remember me
The times were but good
A domain of innocence 
Grant me peace
A haven we can each see
Join me, feast
The inquiry's of this 
Untainted beast
A single forfeited lease 
I beg of you 
To see forth fit
Endeavored we be 
But as grown men are haunted
We’ll play for keeps

the stars are brighter on the outside (of the world)

a view of my current state of mind
minus the tour guide
rather the annoying person who acts like they know it all
but really doesn't have a clue

sometimes i think i might just be one mood swing away from doing something incredibly stupid

maybe this is the creative breakthrough we've all been waiting for
probably just another breakdown from another underachiever

i've been waiting a year for something good to happen
my whole life is divided by a series of time spent waiting
multiplied by many slips and falls

beginning to think that maybe this storybook ending is for the birds and not the boys

i've been longing for an adventure
but to busy planning a funeral for my greatest failure

i'm well aware that i think way too much
when more time is spent on thoughts than on make outs (houston) we have a problem

can't help but feel like the world is passing me by in the night
i struggle just to get out of bed every day and start it over

what if 3am didn't exsist?

i forgot what the morning looks like when you wake up to it
compared to beating it to a sunrise.

life as of late
sleeping less and thinking more
working my way out of certain tendencies by lying to myself

everything i do is as pretend as you make me feel

Must see to the very end!

And don’t you dare try to stop me now!

stop, or

at this point on your journey
we would like to politely request

for those who are offended 
by the use of the word stop
as it negatively affects
their positive self image
we ask that you please 
momentarily suspend forward motion
if you find that this wording 
causes any sort of tension
due to religious beliefs or creed
we ask instead if you would mind
taking a brief hiatus at the designated point

See Inside

I can see inside your backpack.
What I've told them,
I can't take back; they know
I've liked you for a while now.

I wonder if you know
That I'm walking behind you.
Your bag is kind of see-through,
The kind you might have
If you're cool.

I talk to you sometimes.
I wish that you'd say more.
Nobody understands
What I'm crushing on you for.

Across the classroom,
I sit...and stare;
There's got to be something
You're dying to share.

You're walking down
The hallway, Jack.
I see inside
Your green backpack.

I wish there was a diary
Inside your bag
For me to see.

Would you ever say the first word?
Do you even
Want to be heard?

I didn't understand you, Jack.
I can see inside your backpack.
Perhaps there's nothing there at all;
Maybe I just like to fall.
I can see inside your backpack,
Jack --it's empty.

Kind, Slow (Angel of Sadness)

I’m starving, no breakfast, dinner or lunches
Suffocate the next coward, sinner that punches
Constantly roaming in depression, a product of this stress
Spectators cleaning my aggression 
Features adults being less than blessed
Tired of these credit unions telling me NO!
Edit my application 
Now these monopolies’s selling me cash on the go
Fantasies of my flesh snorting infinity lines of coke
Enemies smiling yet they fancy me
Quickly aborting times of being broke
IRS and tax collectors stealing from me
Blood stains the projectors
Visions of me killing any type of sympathy
Riding passenger side, death cab for cutie
Providing scents of lavender
Spent your last breath gasping for beauty
Another step, to summon holy hell my passing duty
Posting my soul, yes a selfish mentality
But those who live to die
May never perish in this phony reality
No mental institution for me
I recline in this chair until I fry
Officers miss my cold stares
Catch chills as I die
Head tilted back
Hundred-thousand volts through each of my limbs
Bloody murder, becoming my newest hymn
I award to them
One more breath 
And I’d beg for a kind, slow death
Now you know if I had one more breath
I’d beg for a kind, slow death

Unfortunately We Frown (My Secret Sin)

Don’t do often, But I want you to think of me smiling
Who but Hells cast wants to see me frowning
It may never come to be, but think of me smiling
I’m drowning and don’t I know how it’s sounding 
Timely lifestyles consist of brutality and poverty
Closed caskets and heavenly sponsored robbery’s 
Such a close call, how we escaped this insanity
All earthly things are but vanity
Everyday vision murky as hell
Sinners is prisoners in Gods cell, chirping for bail
Yet we fend for beauty, strength, and discretion
Bet this is only a partial confession
Take it as a hard lesson
It’s raining these precious earthly treasures 
But we keep a pressing our loyalty in these textures
The weakest being the most wanting in wisdom
My every organ
Constantly pumping to keep life in this system
Given the game, Everyman should be quit
Severely stand and demand hypocrites 
Speak so fiercely 
Yet these angels could so easily pierce me 
If we are made in his magnificence 
Then how can we be of such little significance

Baltimore City

No Love in childhood, it's understood why we love our hood, 
Raised by the village so I feel it,
Afeni says a child needs knowledge in the realest,
Everyones a teacher, so I listen to hear it, 
Keep my ears to da street, cuz it speaks as it rots, 
wit drugs and cops, posin mixed wit rock, 
On my Block, You either survive or get knocked.
This Man we call Tube Socks, Lives outside 711, 
wit a sign that says waitin on heaven,
Cant give um cash, cuz hes on crack, wonder why he gotta be like that?
Sometimes I just stare, wonder why hes there and Im here.
It was tough growing up, I saw to much to soon,
Seven years old open the curtain in my room
see a gang out back, always said I'd never be like that.
But life changes like a river,
and I became a fiend for the liquor,
Get high and Prophesize while smokin da swisher. 
Don't think I'm a saint, cuz I'm just a sinner,
I see da bigger picture, its all connected, 
Im to young to understand it,  but I try and respect it.

don't think i ever noticed
how small this room is
how cold
how lost
how forgotten.

and in these hollow times
when the air is frigid and dry
i laugh.

'silly girl'
you chastise
as the smirk
stains my lips



don't think i ever noticed
the fan never stops spinning
never dies
never stumbles
never falters.

and in these hollow times
when the air is frigid and cold
i shiver.

'silly girl'
you chastise
tossing the blanket
across the room

you always liked
my lips to be stained
with blue instead.

Our Picture Perfect Home (Angel of Sadness)

As you count the days, I’ve been gone
I wonder has much changed
Since I last left home
It takes so much more than I love you
And a kiss on the forehead every morning
To make a relationship work 
My hearts so sore and it keeps telling me
If I go on without you much longer
It’s going to make this companionship hurt
A warm hug won’t make everything better
But it helps, so forget these simple steps
Charms could never linger in this weather
For there is no such depth
Still you count the days, I’ve been gone
Still I wonder has much changed
Since I last left home
I know I can’t be there every moment you cry
But when I am, it makes your loneliness die
And who’s there to watch the children
Maybe tomorrow lady liberty will burn
I’ve come to find that you have much to say
It’ll be seven years of bumping heads in may
So whether it’s in my grave or beside you
That’s where I’m going to continue to lay
I wonder do you still count the days I’ve been gone
Tell me, has much changed
Since I last left home

Trouble By kimmy holmes,{ my daughter)

I've stayed away from trouble
Straightened up my life
I pay the rent
when rent come due
I gotta a day job
I'm goin to school
I give up the whiskey
the late nights out
I got  myself a savings account
But here comes TROUBLE
Ridin up on his 4X4
He scuffs them dusty cowboy boots
across my polished floors
Here come TROUBLE
he's just in time
I've been so good
Nearly lost my mind
If I could just get into TROUBLE
I'd be fine
Mama, you're gonna be so disappointed
when you hear I've turned a fool
But this get tin up early
Five days a week ain't cool
Ima gonna pop the tab on this cold Coors Lite
Go lookin for trouble
Maybe a fight
If Iand in jail
I've done it right

mama tell me the story again
for I know my redeemer liveth 
and walketh upon his higher ground in graceland
let there be peace on earth mama
as we kneel and pray beside
this old rugged cross
let's celebrate new life
and sacrifice to be born again
mama what a friend we have in jesus
for he makes us feel complete
as I get a second chance
thru devotion
my lord I was made to worship you
as I need thee every hour
for morning has broken
and I'm free to be me
for this too shall pass
as christ the lord is risen and
now watches over my family
for I know lord you are thy healer
who can take it all away
so mama turn your eyes upon jesus
as awesome is the lord most high

Suicidal as Kings

I couldn’t tell you why I died
I couldn’t reason with your hurt
I know you’d like to know 
Why I couldn’t further my efforts

Time tears ripples in us, you know
And nothing seems to last forever
So you might as well get over it 
And the rain continues its descent 

Here’s to the tyranny of we men
I’d kill myself on paper
With only revolvers left to spin
But only my sorrow leaks 
From within the quivers of my pen 

I can touch a little bit of Listerine
I can’t seem to get my hands on my liquor
Will someone tell me exactly what it’s about
Or will the weather wash away my doubt 

I used to think I was unbreakable
Now I just want to sooth my sore throat
Why don’t you have another cigarette? 
And all your fears you just may forget 

Here’s to the tyranny of we men
I’d kill myself on paper
Evolving my thoughts to an end
But only my sorrow leaks 
From within the quivers of my pen 

I couldn’t move you 
From the vaults of your worries
I tried but I couldn’t save you
We are but suicidal kings

I’m fainting, but I’m not failing,
The rights of me.

So, you need to get your facts right,
Don’t put on such a big fight!

 
 The things I am, could be
Different, than yours, don’t you see?
I’m me, not you
Now that I know, is true,


Taking your rights in my face?
This has got to be a trace,
On your own, pethetic face.
Mind your own business, please.

Don’t try to be a coincidence.
I'm not going to alow you to
Treat anyone like you do now.

 
Something to think about now, huh?
Don’t act like such a cow, your nothing to make me
Fall,I won’t fall, but you might ,
With those words falling out your mouth.

Holidayz (Angel of Sadness)

November, December, 
I couldn’t bear to remember 
To joy and faith I say goodbye 
Resurrect me, only when these holidays die 
As my senior days become to fade 
Wipe away the innocence of the games we played 
I’m nearly an antique and as my life will come to pass 
Only to be intrigued Sometimes I wonder with the children ask 
November, December, 
I couldn’t bear to remember 
To joy and faith I say goodbye 
Resurrect me, only when these holidays die 
Against these cold tiles I rest my head 
As bad dreams and nightmares test this bed 
A Funeral for those whom bled 
It no longer rains, it only sleets 
It keeps me slipping from these tempered feet 
Like disaster is constantly pressing repeat 
So to these Novembers and Decembers, 
I couldn’t bear to remember 
To joy and faith I say goodbye 
Resurrect me, only when these holidays die 
Happy holidays 
Dear misery, slap me if I follow the paved 
Take these invisible gifts 
Make them into relive-able myths 
And one day, outside this life 
I’ll divorce the devastation 
Marry my dreams and finally hold my wife 
But fantasies are peaceful times 
So again I’ll leave you with a deceitful rhyme

tragedians

She tells me it’s hopeless
She just won’t come down
Circles are shaded 
Boundaries are built to cross

Highways are fortuned
And nothing seems important
I should call her
Or I should drive my way

Are we all just kind of doing whatever
Until something real comes along
Or are we all in limbo
Just sharing our songs in doubt 

So what’s your purpose
And I don’t get it all myself 
And I learned from Stoppard
That life’s a gamble at terrible odds

Holding closely, to what she said
Tragedians at our finest 
And the real world's 
Coming for our heads 

Are we all just kind of doing whatever
Until something real comes along
Or are we all in limbo
Just sharing our songs of wrong

And she just wont calm down
She says she’s been about 
And around this sound
She says it’s not worth it 
It’s all just a hopeless 
Little realm that we live in 

And I couldn’t change her mind
Even if I wanted to 
So I just sat next to her
On this bus ride to Kansas city

Beautifully broken
She touched my hand and said 
Oklahoma’s great
But you’re going to love this town

Need Some Company

So many people in here
But still
You're alone
Must be in some way better than home
Still
The TV shows what can be real
I don't wanna be aggressive
But your pull infected
Me and my instincts
Like a sweet disease

NOW WAIT NOW!!

I'm sure you have a cure an anti-venom so to speak
Restore my heartbeat back to it's normal pace
I beg you miss
Don't think I'm full of it
Cause I speak quickandawfullyslick
Off hand I'll let you know it
I'm a poet
Born one going to die as one of "thee" one's
I write to en light everyday
Though I want the chance to write it for a Someone.......
If I may
I want to be paid
But my only charge to you tonite is a smile to replace
That frown on your face       Right?
If you smoke I'm going to pull out the fire
If you drink
Think of me as the ice cubes that makes it cool to sip
that tickles your lips
Excuse me, but, Is someone else sitting here?

If not can I join the table and bathe in your presence
Wash the stranger's mystique off
Let you see me as I am while we talk
Need some company?
Be mine at least ....
If I can't be yours

or have my eyes become those of a stranger
I'm not here to complicate things
I didn't come to see those tears in your eyes
To see your face
To hear your voice
To know that you still think of me is enough
You look good
Your eyes look less haunted than before
even after all of these years
I can't breathe standing this close to you
even now if you kiss me I will fall to my knees
I see in you all of the things I loved before
I'm not here to complicate things 
I didn't come here for you to see these tears in my eyes
To touch your face
To hear your voice
To feel that you still think of me is enough
We both have lives now
we both have people we love
my man is good and he loves me completely
you have a woman that loves you and had given you her all
we can't hurt them as we did before
So we will share a few cigarettes
and talk about the weather
leaving everything else unsaid
but i will go away happy
just to see your face
to hear your voice
to know that you still think of me is enough

Song of Hope

If we try nothing is there too big,
if we try nothing is there too great,
if we try no chance for us to sigh,
if we try then we can rest and lie.

If we try we can sleep in peace,
if we try we'll find a time to kiss,
if we try no chance for a goodbye,
if we try no tear is there to cry.

If we try I think we can embrace,
if we try no chance for us to miss
the love we longed for thru the years,
if we try there's time for us who care.

Wisconsin or bust

Thumb my way out of here to clear my head
I think I’ll fit in somewhere new I’m feeling dead
Hitch my way across state lines
Great journey to the dairy land 
My trip is relaxing like a walk on the beach sand
As fate would have it my feet stay planted here
This must be some bogus weakness or fear
	Chorus Wisconsin or bust if you loves cheese it’s a must
Packed two shirts and two pair of pants
With little money do I have a chance?
Walking down a highway dashes of yellow lines
Farwell to old friends my mind centers binding me here
	Chorus Wisconsin or bust if you loves cheese it’s a must
Am I a man am I a freak
 Am I geek are there words to speak
From lips moving ever so fast 
Vibrations of sound in my throat won’t last
People cast stones at our brittle glass lives
We live as souls that touch so short of a time together
Sun at my back wind at my face better a world today better a place
	Chorus Wisconsin or bust if you loves cheese it’s a must

7 days to love you

time stands still when i'm with you
i share with you my dreams and all my love
count my blessings and thank the lord above
will you always be there with soft eyes and long hair

chorus it's not fair with only seven days to be loving you

love your silky soft skin laying naked on the beach beside you.
let the waves crash down all around us
we'll watch the sunset above our heads
hold you in my arms until the day turns black to night

chorus it's not fair with only seven days to be loving you

we will be together as one you see
complete the love in my heart don't want us to part
wake up to you beside me because your my best friend
start over again open up you eyes sort out the lies

chorus it's not fair with only seven days to be loving you

the truth is you finish my sentences and you light up my life
what a beautiful sight you are you give me the answers
i question this place and i question it's meaning
kiss you goodbye the only girl to make me cry this is the end
i send you my love miss the smell of your hair
feeling empty inside a piece of me as died

when fire met oil

never wanted to be alone

all my life that's all it's been

one big show of happiness

one long trail of tears

never wanting to be alone

i pretend i'm all i need

i've gotta be somebody,anybody, but myself

i want to live each day as my last

hoping i'd attract someone like you

waiting all my life

pretending i'm all that i need

then you come into the picture

that's when fire met oil

burning my dreams to the ground

into a pile of ash

crashing what dignity i had

i bit off more than i could chew

as i brushed the ashes off

just so i wasn't alone

you've made a name for yourself

that's one step up from being nobody

now your the asshole

that everyone's talking about

the one that everyone's staring at

now your the one alone

and i'm standing in the crowd

making a name for myself

i'm not alone

thanks to your hard lesson

when fire met oil

somewhere to go

the wind that creeps
that softly speaks
that constantly weeps
which loudly pleads
its case to be free

the sky of gray
sky of gray
treacherous days
treacherous days
this wretched phase
in which i fade

the storm that howls
from seven sea
the rebel cries of revelry
the trees that whisper
their tales to tell
the ring of bells still frightens me


give your pain a sheltered hide
look for vision in the sky
let all of the people know
behind the sky is a place to go

keep on running
keep on keepin' now
you've got to keep escapin'
the beasts are on the prowl
the beasts are on the prowl
And they're comin' now

Revelations

Why does it take the unexpected for me to feel connected?
Gods the architect, He designed it, I reflect it. 
Flip the coin of life and death,
One side Emotion the other intellect, 
Human trial and error, then progress.
It’s a domino affect.
We grow, 
Some are silent, others shine like Ultraviolet. 
I am sunlight and purple pain,
Wrist bound by misery’s chains.
I see,
We all stereotype it’s the truth,
We got deep roots and bad habits 
woven into the souls fabric,
It’s hard to manage, everyday’s a challenge.
I got to find balance.
Destroy system taught, polluted Thoughts,
Cut out the worlds poison, and burn the wound with Salt. 
Were all cut from the same Cloth.

My Truth:
Ignorance is not an Excuse.

Richard

I could sit forever and say I hate you
Or at least until my face goes blue
But that wouldn’t mean anything
Cause deep inside I need you
And you know id never leave you
Because my words don’t mean anything
I could sit and call you ugly 
Show the world so they can see
But it’d only reveal me
Cause you know deep inside I need you
I always have
And you know deep inside id never leave you
I never could have
You are my best
And id rather be partially miserable 
Because we’re only friends 
Then loose you ands be completely miserable 
Without you my friend

Such A Wide River To Cross

Such a wide river for me to
Cross

I don’t think I can make it
This time

Such a wide river for me to
Cross

Why does the tides seem so
High

Holding me back

The Loneliness keep filling
My soul..

My travel is lonely and I can’t
Help from wondering

Why and

Will I ever find my way home

The mountains are many

Keep getting in my path

Blocking my way

Why I feel so burden down

Such a wide river for me to
Cross..

I wander around blinded and
Can't seem to see my way..

Will I ever see my home

Spending Time With Spider Wbs

Speaking to the spider webs.

I drink to them all night long.

And they capture all that I say,

So if you ever come along,

You can hear where I have gone.

 

It's a long way back home

It's a long way from where I've been

 

I get there and see spider webs.

They say I'm without a home.

I'm shuned by the ones I loved,

and stuck with nothing to do

In a place where I don't belong.

 

It's a long way back home

Where I thought I was from

Spending time with spiderwebs

Is the only thing like home

Sweet is no sweeter than you sweetheart 

I’m so impressed by your sweetness 

Your sweet voice is still in my ears

I can feel your presence and it is heart touching 

You are my beauty that I always admire 

You are everything to me 

Without you I suffer 

With you I always feel the support  

That is so sweet and fascinating 

So attractive your features are 

So incomparable your qualities are

You are my best friend 

You are my lovely wife

You are my sweetheart 

For you I can do anything 

I can fight for you

I can die for you

A Thought for Myself

I can see the birds fly in the air 
I can see the motion of the trees with the wind 
I can see the things fly in the air 
I can hear the sound produced by the wind 
I can inhale and exhale the air 
I can see the glaciers fly with the wind 
I can see the clouds moving in the air 
I can see the rainwater, which is colorless 
And the air, which is also colorless 
And the air could not be seen 
Because it is a gas like substance 
Which could only be experienced
 And could not be visible 
I can assume that air is so valuable 
Yet I cannot see it 
So why should I claim 
When I’m so valuable 
Let the people decide 
Feel my presence 
Understand my talent
come to me 
and realize my value 
and I'm not going to boast about myself
and one day the world will appreciate my effort 
and I keep on doing my work 
as I can see you 
then you better can 
feel my presence when you see me
Like me 
understand me 
think about me 
and encourage me 
when always 
 I thank Almighty that I could be seen 
And the air could not be seen.
Yes the air is not visible.

Malevolence (Karma for Demons) (Angel of Sadness)

She’s coming for me 
The things that I have said
Shh! I’m already dead
She’s coming for me
I’m laid back
But I spit like a demon possessed dragon
An angel colored in darkness
Drunken from life and staggering
What’s behind this kids eyes
The homeless shadow he carries alone
The story behind the songs
No I do not speak in tongues
To live a casual life is not to seek to be hung
There is no forgiveness for cursing your living 
Consequences circle my thoughts 
Shaded purple is my appearance for resisting the law
I can make my words seem of innocence 
Or I can make my words keen of relevance 
Two murders in Genesis
She’s coming for me
I lay down; I’m troubled in my peace
I wake up to visions of my flesh deceased
She’s coming for me
The things I’ve to often said
My souls coughing, seems I’m already dead
She’s coming for me

Beautiful Darkness (My Secret Sin)

O beautiful darkness
How lovely is thee 
O beautiful darkness 
You can only be as lovely as me
O beautiful darkness
Even in a court of nobles
No man among you could match me
Light could only scratch 
As I sit and await darkness to snatch me
Look for death and find it you shall 
No man is your pal
For you can feel the jealousy as their spirits howl
So madly rash
Remain so sadly at the hash
Because you were so easily solicit 
I had to become so much more explicit
Lord of paradise
A threat to all those whom care about life
For every man I rest and no man spareth
Suffer from an unforgiving wrath
Into thy hands this is what I demand
My soul, I commend, take it lord!
Let it not be lost
If it’s greed, I only ask 
That these sins be faded with the frost
As this beautiful darkness is my eternal cost

My Last Night (Angel of Sadness)

I rose, I stood
It was a feeling somewhat good
I laughed, I talked
My forearms even looked
As if they contracted shaded chalk
My body, my shadow seemed to no longer stalk
These were the events I would present
The morning of my last night
Strange enough, I even toasted to breakfast
The humor in drowning in this lake last
You and me, together we’re going to make past
If I let go, then this song dies
And we become nothing more, than a repetition of tries
Ain’t it beautiful?
The things we grow to hate
We reach for in our final grasp
So soothing so cool
These are the things thought about
Mourning my last night
I shook hands
As if it were a normal day
I accepted the conclusion of a troubled man
I participated in a few random acts of kindness
I even cursed the face of a phantom in pure blindness
The things I accomplished
The morning of my last night

sad but true

Sad but true. When we all fall down who will catch you? 
 Count the days and praise the one who always prays. 
 The sun is coming down on us hard 
tonight.  
When she finally dies her blood will paint the sky with the color called night.  
Small pin holes called stars shine through the black blanket of blood. 
 Pain"t" is just a dirty cover up with Tea added to the mud.  
Take the "T" away and all you have left of this cover up is PAIN!  
The secret you conceal in your heart keeps your brain from being sain.  
Add the secret Tea to this with all of your kindness and a Sain"t" will be forever in 
your heart.    
In order to finally finish this life with peace, you have to know were to start!!

Now How About That

Vibrant swirls, searching a canvass of black
Creating a world of colures, 
Taken from a gunnysack…
The mind explores all it observes,
There is no turning back~
Admirations, full of life deserved;
The portrait is complete, all concur,
Now how about that…

Love me, Hate me (My Secret Sin)

Lovely as I love you
Shove me, but it’s as lovely as I love you
Lovely, hug me, shove me
But it’s as lovely as I love you
If I hate me, would you still hate me?
What if no longer from my image you could rate me
I just want you to hate me
That way when we bicker and fight 
At the end of the night, you may still be my wife
Climax is more depressing than Miramax
Send my hate this rose, send my love this fax
For life is based on facts
Murderers with a lovely axe
It’s true, it’s true, tomorrow it’s you
Just ask Peterson and OJ
It doesn’t really matter what some say
And some day in that forbidden casket I’ll lay
Beautiful is you
Next to your cuticles, what do I do?
Matter is everything
But for some reason matter is so much sadder
The tears after the laughter
This is my love poem, my passion
Maybe this time you will kick me above the groin
Why is our pastime something we mourn?
A sacred Identity is born
Tears of shame, responsibly worn
Maybe after tonight we’ll make up 
And you’ll lay your head in my arms
And allow me to sooth you with my selfish charms
I love you, you hate me 
Tomorrow I’ll hate you and you’ll love me

From Blood to Coke (angel of sadness)

Maybe I’ll never learn, haunted by every turn 
Ignore these blessing just to keeps stressing 
The moment ceases to please us, lets examine this flaw 
As I snort pieces of Jesus through this broken straw 
Seems I go through misery stress 
Just to write about, that’s who I am 
So dear reader no worry’s 
It is me not you that I damn 
Perhaps I will never be a great writer 
Grasping for fate ever so higher than a pilot 
A soviet fighter 
My dreams are exhausted 
Hopefully I’ll die before you kill me 
Similar to living life so costly 
My failures tower over my enemies 
Tell the poor 
I am only average so don’t fancy me 
My impatience is a essence of non relevance 
Driven by whispers and quiet chants 
For I feel the times are lingering soon 
All sinners to this platoon 
Our mission to be cast 
No further than shadows on the moon 
Yet we’ll never learn haunted by every turn 
Ignore these blessing just to keeps stressing 
The moment ceases to please us, lets examine this flaw 
As I snort pieces of Jesus through this broken straw

Life As A Song (Angel of Sadness)

Library lounge, It’s a sad, sad song
The bar scene period is a sad, sad song
Smoke purifies the air, still nothing terrifies my stare
Every episode, the same played scene
The strangers we rubbed and laid between
The washed up bartender, playing his hand 
Wife called three times, yet he’s staying to make a stand
Everything about this place is a sad, sad song
Each step we take, the making due with what’s left to bake
Burning crosses, turning to the open closest
After the bomb, no laughter to come
An early rapture for some
The flame that appears to be taking my soul
The mother who’s life revolves around another’s pole
Monroe, Louisiana, it’s a sad, sad story
The lives we lead, the heavy breathing
No response for the patients steadily leaving 
Frankin Parish High School 
The small town and communities, the empty liver pools
Nightmares that no longer bother you
Images that only seem cosper to you
Random flowers from strangers
Sadness that towers over angels
You life, my silent nights
Rain drops that trickle down my night stained windows
The shame that tickles my frown, no sins to close
The obsessions that claim our sanity
The morning dew that eats away at worn fabrics
Everything I just wrote nothing less of vanity
The guilt in my conscience, such a sad, sad song

Down South Girl

There's a country girl,
Down south I know,
And she writes some
Incredible music,
I'm tellin' you so...

I'm a NYC musician,
Been at it for a while,
Played many a gig,
But never with the style,
Of this gal I know

This Alabama darling
With talent I adore,
I could listen for hours,
And keep asking for more...

I'm an R & B man,
And play that classic rock,
But when I heard her song,
I almost went into shock...

Now, I can make my Hammond B3,
Growl and spit and hiss..
I can improvise as good,
As many think is bliss...

But this country Christy
Opened up my eyes,
Though not a country player,
I was hypnotized...

So keep your ears open,
There's a new talent here today,
And Nashville is yet,
To see their finest day!

Brace

If you feel it in your bones to yell,
then let a mighty roar bellow from the inside.
If it flows through your blood to hurt,
then brin a unforgiving pain to all who cower.
And if time allows for you to cheat,
unfaily take what you feel you desearve.

But remember, and change.
Take a second look, and learn.
And realize that although you do what you will,
you'd better take time to brace.

If the mood fits you can think up a bomb
to blow everyone away,
to deplete loved ones,
to wreak havoc on the land.
And if you have it in you
you can lie to the masses,
after all, life isn't important,
and the truth is a lie to, right?

But remember, and change.
Take a second look, and learn.
And realize that although you do what you will,
you'd better take time to brace.

i don't wanna fight

I don't wanna fight.
No more and not tonight.
If life is like a road,
And its time to pick a path,
The one that leads to you is closed.

I hope through all this
I can teach you a thing or two.
Because you don't know how to treat a woman..
I'm not coming back,
Not now, not ever.
Maybe then, the next time
A woman comes into your life,
She can stay.

Instead of " I hate you", thrown in a "I can't live without you".
In place of " you make me sick", maybe a 
" you are special", or "you make me smile".

Here we are
In the same bar.
Is that a sign?
Yeah, a sign should leave.
It's been a long time
And you have crossed my mind.
No, don't walk over here
'Cause I don't want you to hear,

I don't wanna fight.
No more, and not tonight.
If life is a road, then I've chosen my path.

Shadows of Blood (My Secret Sin)

I've traveled this path
Suffering the consequences of my lords wrath
Yet I won't stumble
My passion to susceed I refuse to fumble
Squint my eyes to see through the battles of love
But all I see is my reflection in the shadows of blood
I'm thankful for this 
You have blessed and bestowed  on me 
The comfort and warmness that have grown on me 
And right before I rest my thoughts
"Our father which art in heaven"
I now know why your favorite number is seven
I hold my fists, my fingerprints, my palms
Only for a touch of passion from your thumb
Yes I'm the youngest born of nine children
The only curse born outside the walls of Kilborne
And exactly who is the chosen one
Could it be the only idiots barechested opposing a gun
Fame is something you, yourself adore
A place to smile, be happy 
With jagged and jaded thrills is something I'd die for 
I'm that raisen in bitter bread
That single sin 
That came from those that were innocently fed 
Mrs. Brown, you have killed my future
Everything I worked and hurt for
Even if I was a peasant, I couldn't beg for more
I'm curious to know
How do you sleep at night
Your only objective now is to feed the fight
Swallow this poisonous seed built from your guilt 
And lie bleeding in the night

Morocco (My Secret Sin)

I’ll see you in morocco
I’ll see you in morocco
The real world is gone, lost and alone
Would I die to escape this pain
And kiss my fathers feet to reappear at dawn 
One groan, two moans
Time is reality
The weight of life put in a calorie
Whether Jim Morrison is your lizard king 
Or your black cloud leather demon
Your chromosomes
Came through that dead beats semen
Raped your mother in order to free them
A place at the peek of the heavens 
Just above the stars 
The only place where we peasants 
Sip cheers at the bars
And this innocence 
It’s more than I could ever be
Even when pity is all we’re blessed to see
We as individuals are immortalized in pictures 
Out into the wilderness
I’m tempted to venture
Life is something 
We seem to never to forget to mention
Yet when death threatens 
We seem to gain a new strict sense of attention
Stressed because we worked hard for pensions 
Avoiding the landlord
Hoping to get an extension
Conspirators in wicked lines 
As impressive as these laborers with picket signs 
Hippies protesting the war 
Hallucinating from congested fumes in a jar
Peace is where ever you make it 
Happiness is comforting 
As long as you don’t fake it
I’ll see you in morocco

Ur Closest Acquaintance (Angel of Sadness)

It’s become a burden to accompany you on this journey
Sincerely your dearest friend, your closest acquaintance
How much further must we roam?
Days go by, time expires, yet the path is never ending
Night sky’s dwell, yet the darkness hesitates to fail
The adversity and trials I kiss, forever mending
But it wouldn’t be a story without tragedy
A small percentage of glory grasping after me
I’m sorry to say, it’s become a burden to walk beside you
Sincerely your dearest friend, your closest acquaintance
As if we were enemies
I’d swear on grave, lay in it, and bare no witness to your truth
And await my final sighs to be seized
But to console our friendship
I’d carry a wave, maybe a smile, but I’ll share no fitness, above my hooves
And as if I was never there, I’ll be taken without a breeze
It saddens me to say
That it’s become a burden to accompany you on this journey
Sincerely your dearest friend, your closest acquaintance
My objective to remain illusive
If I could become no further intrusive
Just watch my steps 
The very actions I bring your depth
But I shall carry on
Have your misery declare me home

the cold/the passing

troubles low in the summer end
anticipation of foreign winds
you pray hoping that it's not the end
hope and wish and pray again
fall is here as the winter speaks
a lone whisper to the falling leaves
build your fire for brief reprieve

your warmth soon withers far away
the sun rays are gone from yesterday
no more sounds of the games that children play
the silences of self you can't escape
all eat your hopes away

Winter's longer than you've stressed
troubles high and winds aggressed
the storms are coming winds abreast, the devil scorn
he means your death
the lands are barren,nothing left
our usual joys subject to theft

winter's here
winter's here
winter is here
show no fear

Silver Feathers (My Secret Sin)

Every now and then life is tragic 
And we just can’t accept its grace
An innocent touch 
Just couldn’t allow happiness 
To smother my face
What ever time sees
Take my hand please
It brings me back to my knees 
As my dreams chase reality
Until then, we keep our palms together
Close our eyes and wish upon a silver feather
Forever will these skies be our shelter
Every now and then, life’s a roller coaster 
Your highs are down and low
Forgive me for being capsuled 
But where do I go when the stars refuse to glow
What ever time sees
Take my hand please
It brings me back to my knees 
As my dreams chase reality
Until then, we keep our palms together
Close our eyes and wish upon a silver feather
Forever will these skies be our shelter
From my sorrow 
Into the arms of tomorrow
I’m sadder now
Yet what can all this laughter be
It seems only my shadow chases after me

Stardust

I held my head up high in
The cloud..
The stardust sprinkle in tune
Yet waves and dance to the
Old minstrel band
With broken strings, cords all
Out of tune..
But the minstrel band just pay
No never mind,
Just played on with broken strings,
Cords all out of tune..
Life reflections undefined, in 
Depth the soul lives on..
Silently the soul whispers with
Broken wings..
The stardust sprinkle in tune
Sustain each tear,
With broken strings, cords all
Out of tune..
Yet waves and dance to the old
Minstrel band,
With silver teardrops filling the
Soul,
From broken wings, soul silently
Whispers..

Denver Nights

When did 
goodbye become a song
So here’s to 
All the things 
We never thought we’d say
Don’t want to leave
But we both know 
I can’t stay

Too soon  
tomorrow summons me away
Here we are 
Awaiting autumns fall
Your tears tell me
Time has cast us apart 
For far too long

Tell me, when did
Goodbye become our song
The bus awaits
My train departs 
I’m away from home
These lonesome days 
Spent in Oklahoma 

Here we are 
Just the two of us 
Dawn awaits a touch of silence
Try and say 
What it is you have to say
I don’t want to
But you know I have to go

Up the boulevard we walk 
Sunsets, August fades 
Are we at peace with our songs 
You awoke 
Passenger side in an unknown car
Estranged in this day
We changed in our own ways

Lost and Alone (My Secret Sin)

I decided to write a special dedication
Holding her in my arms was soothing as meditation
I met her as a freshman
Her eyed dyed with dryness
Palm to palm 
I squeezed tightly, just so we could get by stress
Watched you laugh as I pressed my thumbs 
Up against your chubby gums 
And even as you were pouting 
Your innocence stretched a smile
And as you lay across my chest 
I soon forgot the happiness I so longed for as a child
And now I miss you for miles
But if you could just find your way home
You wouldn’t be so lost and alone
If you could just find your way home
We wouldn’t be so lost and alone
I write so much better when it’s dim
Sorrow leaks from this romantic film
Into your eyes 
I’ll charm your lips and wipe away your tears
Smile whenever your whispers near my ears
And I wish I could take your pain away
I miss you even more and that’s a shame to say
I’m lonely and on the inside I’m dying
Sometimes I wonder if I should keep trying
In search for happiness
Maybe I’ll laugh for death
I turn up liquor
Hoping that it’ll absolve my problems quicker
Not much of an alcoholic
So I don’t exactly know what one would call it 
I’m lost and alone
But still wondering when you’ll find your way home

My Musical

A reflection 
Is that enquiry
That touches 
Our past 
My wintered rose
As centered
My prose
Life 
My splinter
As the mist rose
The path taken 
The path of that
No often chose
And in the ending 
I say goodbye 
To those 
Whom greet me
“Hello”
The cure 
A smoothly 
Moved cello

Snow flakes
On days 
It doesn’t mist
The spectacles 
That un-flower
Within
My fist
The seasons 
Of my life 
With told 
From an 
Hour hand

for 2morrow

Take you on a roll
Make your shelter fold
It’s been quite the average load
More than we can hold
No further place to roam
A place like being known
A place where you are home

Take you on the road
Some place you won’t grow old
No more stories lie, untold
We’ve been waiting, for too long
Here’s to your cheers
The moral to your song

Take you on a role
Wind your windows cold
A place you want to hold
It’s been such a path
We laugh, for its all we have

Journey Men

And when your little light shines out
What are you going to do about?
Days you know you can’t slow down
Days you know you can’t do with out 
You’ve endured through thorough droughts
Now you know there’s no way out 

And when your little light shines out
What are you going to do 
To make it through the night
The obscurity tries you
For it paints you a pale knight
How much further might you venture
Through this darkened isle

And when you find no barriers peace
You’ve made it to the end now 
You find rest upon a strangers smile 
And when your little light shines out 
When red lights stop your life
And green lights are not fast enough
Breathe
These are the moments that touch us
If we can make it to the morning
I’ve found comfort 
Within the light in your eyes

no ordinary confectionery

Whisper me a lullaby
I'll never leave your side
we'll rock eachother's cradle
leave behind those night's we cried....

Whisper's so softly , they bounce in my head
twisting and turning you're burning my bed
heart is on fire my body is lead
to your sweet desire it's your love instead

Sweet candy kisses , milk chocolate chip's
see you like this has me licking my lip's
it's my body that quakes, my tooth does'nt ache
bring it to me girl , my devil's food cake

Confection , perfection
you've got my attention
straight up like a soldier
i'll be your invention
to do what you wish
your creation , your myth
your fairytale beginning
no ending just spinning

We'll re-chart the star's
go above and beyond
just hold on to forever
creating new celestial song's......

The Scarlet Sails again!

 

You cry? You have been offended?

They do not want to be friends with you?

Do not cry, my little girl!

They are silly, and sometime

They will understand their mistakes.

Years will pass.

One day you will look in a mirror.

And will see the charming girl

with pensive eyes.

from a presentiment of a miracle.

You will dress in your best dress   

and will run along the coast

of ocean, the sea, or the big river.

Suddenly the white ship 

with huge SCARLET SAILS

will appear on the horizon.

Solemn music will play,

and all command in dress uniform 

will gather on the deck.

The crowd of people will gather at the coast.

But you should be near the water.

Soon the landing boat decorated with flowers

will have been lowered down from the surprising white ship

The young sunburnt captain will float in it to the coast, to you.

He will take your hand,  will put on your finger the ring,

and will take you with himself in Happiness.

People on coast will cry to you:

«The happy way! Good success!»

And those who offended you,

will be very much surprised and disappointed.

They never heard about the fine book

by Russian writer Alexander Green

« The Scarlet Sails «...

... You do not cry any more, my dear?

You have understood,

what this fairy tale says about you?

But you must,

like the girl Assol in this book,

keep faithful to your dream

and wait for your own ship with SCARLET SAILS.

Fiona's Song

Slow my heart as autumn is coming
and I'm crossing the street just to meet you.
Your eyes never end in green and in glass, 
and the ring on your finger is heavy and new.
The sky is just the right contrast of colors
to frame you under the still burning leaves
I'm hoping you're humming my favorite song
while under your breath my lost harmony frees

Souls locked and leaning like the trees scolding winter
with our arms intertwined and immersed
in the rhythm of the gait of our bundled up feet
still finishing one another's thoughts unrehearsed
When does the artist become her lost song?
You're feeling dark and I now feel it too,
but we'll sort out the details in the still brilliant air
and leave the remains for the winter to sort through

Your voice will always be steady to me
and I know that I'll find you if lost
The winter is known for it's soulless kidnapping
while deep in anxiety we crackle with frost
So let's relish this moment of purity breathing
Let's wish like the sky isn't raining with leaves
For one more fine moment the sunshine is shining
and it's there for the taking for the one who believes...

Much More (My Secret Sin)

And I don’t want to miss you much more
Now you know what I want to keep in touch for
Cause I don’t want to miss you much more
You kept me from searching for something we each adore
Another knight leaving the fight in rusted armor
Closed your eyes and said bad luck was a charmer
Evil through mans vein
Supply most of the poverty and pain
Caught a tear drop 
Asked “you know who” when the rain would stop
Plagued by unemployment
I do nothing for my own enjoyment
What if I was spoiled, would I write the same
Maybe I’m just a brat without a name
Couple of friends misplaced
Riding high, now their shame is lowercased
I’d say be mine 
But I can see, you’re doing just fine
Going solo, playing water polo
Tracking wet feet in the dojo
Speak in violence
Got a fistful to try it in silence
Searching for something more to adore
But I don’t want to miss you much more

Shelter My Eyes (Angel of Sadness)

My heart don’t want to beat for me today
Arguments and bouts
We done drifted a good distance apart anyways
The measurement
Only teases as we wonder where the pleasure went
I’d hold my head, but she don’t want me here no more
I’m looking at heaven
But there is no happiness behind them doors
Momma say there’s a better man in change
I’m going to be the same
So there ain’t much this letter can change
I’m dying, bad thoughts seizing my brain
Smiles teasing my pain
And my heart is crying 
How could I not want to think of those tender moments again
Childhood memories, I don’t even know where to begin
Foster homes and social workers 
Lost my temper, but how could my vocals hurt her
I apologized; I even reached out and gripped your hand
Tipped you well 
Hoping that it would make it easier for you to understand
Besides I died
Laid in my casket and sheltered my eyes 
As my enemies cried
I took one from the heavens and died
Laid in my casket and sheltered my eyes
I swear my enemies cried 
As if they cared that I died

The World's Only Capture (Angel of Sadness)

Only my saviors childs are the this worlds capture
We sinners live to see the rapture
It was something more than a catastrophe
My conscience steadily asking me
Is the plan still to live life severe and disaster free?
My dreams are exhausted, seems temptation has reached the sky’s 
Sinners become saints, attempting to figure which prophecy lies
Veins constantly bleeding, I can feel my soul leaving
Yet I’m forever breathing
The curse of Kane
No flu shots cause I’m never sneezing 
Seems my misery is ever pleasing 
And with the mourning after
I wonder why these children are your lords only capture
Yet we sinners live to see the rapture
Label me sexiest, homophobic, homosexuals baring arms in marriage
A third of the world is gone
Bury baby Jesus with charms in his carriage
Execution of minors
I guess there’s nothing in this life finer
Dear child I watched your mother scrub the windows of that diner
Who am I to say that you are wrong? 
But who are you to weigh that child and determine if he’ll live long
Mr. President consistently stepping over hurricane victims
Misery no longer worry’s my pain, I can see it’s only a sitcom
Do you remember nine/eleven 
Simply because that September, down south was your only heaven
And as you galloped with the clouds 
Alqueda stood on it’s soil, it’s dust and dirt proud
But then again I’m wrong to speak out
But I guess making home is what being weak is about
A woman’s right is abortion
Perhaps it’s wrong but it’s only a portion
The tragedy’s we smile to see
The happy times are where we suffered above tiles to be
Breathing on my last breath
Leading my last steps 
Of coarse the worlds gone end
But it seems my saviors childs are the worlds only capture

Should I Die Tonite (from Scenes from Above)

If I should die tonite
Let these demons and angels rejoice in delight
If I should bow my head & rest tonight
If it's not polite
Let my enemies shrudley kiss me goodnite
Rehearse a small prayer if I should die tonight
My standard of living is a factor of giving
The things I've sworn off the tip of my tongue
The fabrics I've worn so soft
From the tips of my thumb
Death ain't nothing but time & distance
In a fine line royalty may kiss and dance
Glorify the blood in my eyes 
Ain't nothing but violence and silent cries
Let the God judge as I pilot my lies
My residents evil, just escaped my casket
Task it, a second chance to outlast it 
I'm putting together a masterpiece
Something more precious than souls deceased
My anger and compasssion
My satisfaction, with being buried in fashion
Just to live life and die twice
The very passion of christ!!

Long-Lost Friend

Years had passed since we had
our last glimpse of each other
and memories are not enough
to bring back the good old days. 

Remember how we used to shout
and howl when we hit the jackpot,
playing cards, wasting our time
all through the long lonely nights.

Well, after all those years,
it’s nice to see you again,
good to see you, old friend,
you haven’t changed at all;
the boy in you is still there 
after all this time, hey, yes,
it’s nice to see you, old friend.

Remember how mom would holler
to call you home for supper;
we cried a lot each time we saw
our kites escape to the highest sky
and we’re left with just the strings.

We used to dig rhythm & blues,
John, Paul, George and Ringo;
why, they were our fans,
they’d clap their hands,
so awed by our guitars.

Well, after all those years,
it’s nice to see you again,
good to see you, old friend,
you haven’t changed at all;
the boy in you is still there 
after all this time, hey, yes,
it’s nice to see you, old friend.

Hey, I'm so glad to see you again.

Autumn Days (My Secret Sin)

My forehead’s warm
But in my mind I’ll be okay
And I don’t know what else to say
Just thankful for another autumn day
Rose this morning 
Sweating from head to toe
My bill’s been fed 
It’s time to get the door
The phone rings twice
Looks like I’m gonna be tardy once again
Eyes blood shot
Just got over an appetite for gin
Matter in my eyes
I’m a casualty of laughs and cries
If the morning dew doesn’t melt the frost
Then anti freeze won’t pay the cost
Day by day
In a petal of dreams 
I seem to lay
And even if the sun shined bright
I wouldn’t know what to say
Guess I’m thankful for another autumn day
It’s six past nine
And I don’t know 
If my mind’s gonna outlast this wine
Push the door
Squint my eyes
There’s nothing more I adore
My face is not washed 
And I can’t clear the picture in the fog
Early morning bug got squashed
I’m cold and shaky so I can’t make it off this log
My hairs not combed 
And I can’t seem to think 
Out of misery 
And into life I can’t help but sink
Now my foreheads warm, 
But in my mind I’ll be okay
Yet I don’t know what else to say
Just thankful for another autumn day

Curse The Muse

The smell of blood
        awakens me
                from my slumber.
I find myself in the center of a room,
walls splattered with blood
and chunks of what looks 
                          like flesh,
   here an arm,
        there a leg,
                 an ear.

Memory hits me
like a fist to the face.

Sitting in a tree, 
I wait,
     seems like hours on end.
Then I pick up the scent,
      taste it in my mouth.
I see a form approaching  the spot,
                             I drop
feeling weightless for mere seconds.
As I make contact
                             time stops,
my claws shred the flesh
of her back like tissue paper,
blood matting my  hair,
      coating my skin.
Slish, slash
slicing hamstrings
and calves,
can't let my prey get away.
I stand there,
tasting the fear this soul reeks of,
letting it roll in my mouth
like a fine wine.

My presence engulfs her,
smacking her to the true reality,
                            game over.
I take a bite from her side
to satiate myself,
this one will take hours.
I grab her by the ankle
and drag the carcass,
taking it (her) inside.

Leaving her in the center of the room
                     I circle,
    enjoying as the blood pools
                         watching,
                              waiting,
giving false hope,
waiting for the mind
to think there's a chance.

When she starts to stir
                    I crawl in,
ripping into her thigh.
The screams are the sweet melody
to my play.
Feeling the blood
run down my chest
I go into a frenzy,
tearing flesh with abandion,
throwing about
as much as I devour.
I gorge myself
into a deleriated state,
passing out within my artwork.

As I digest my prey
my mind replays the memory,
              making my body quiver.

Winter Season (My Secret Sin)

I've come so far
Grasping nothing more that memories of a fading star
In Search of a sanctuary other than a bar
A place where I can lay my head
Somewhere to I can rest my deepest thoughts 
And shelter the molecules we shed
The troubles in this life of mine
The lover in this wife of time 
Another christmas spent alone
Attempted suicide 
But I'll never get to wake to a white dawn
Two stretches from a great moan
A few timely expressions from going home
Misery substituted for family time and childhood smiles
My only passion to carry on 
How can I wipe your tears when no body loves me
So selfish, yet I'm only human
And it seems everyone looks above me 
If I could look back it would all be past tense 
Instead I sit here and swallow this glass of nonsense
I could only dream of egg nogg
Pushing through snow that covers my legs in the fog
Christopher Kringle
Spreading that warm feeling that tingles
That precious tune from bells that consistently jingle
Maybe it's all make believe
And maybe the cold winter nights won't take my sleeves

Drowning In Life

Little town in the boondocks
Little girl just waiting to grow up
People thought her life was perfect
Thought she was perfect, but she wasn't
She felt like an outcast
with her friends,
felt like an outcast
to the whole wide world,
felt like she'd burst
with all her troubles,
felt like she'd drown in her life

Perfect grades got her freedom
Horrible temper got her grounded
Couldn't keep up with her parents expectations

Perfect music got her first chair
Sharp tongue got her the hallway
Couldn't stop cursing her teachers and life

Perfect actions got her friends
Fights got her in the office with none
Couldn't keep all these friendship rules straight

So she started drowning in her life

Got in trouble everyday
Couldn't help it with all the rules to break
Started skipping classes, cutting school
Her grades went down the drain with her life
Ranaway, came back
Found out that life wasn't for her 
Couldn't keep anything straight
Couldn't do anything right
So she drowned in her life

Yeah, she drowned in her life

where in the world do i search for my stolen robe
who do I employ to investigate in the rob

Held My Hands (My Secret Sin)

Ease your thoughts
For I am at fault
You stood alone
Well I left home 
In my most troubling steps 
I sensed your worry, your passion your grace 
As only your soft touch could warm my face
My only comfort was in your arms, a peaceful place
Is the only sanctuary where time won't mourn
And trust won't turn
A sacrifice at your expense
Left us both in suspence
But it was your heart I had to convince
Would you have held my hand
I ask would you have my hand
Shadows sing 
As the weak trade bread and water for anything
The only place you felt feign
Was the only place where your trust remains
Nothing so cold as your shoulder shrugs 
Nothing told that you cared as your fervid hugs 
I'd say I loved you in vain
But it would only sober up my pain
Burning leaves 
The stress that lonliness guareentees 
I only ask would you have held my hand
With me being so stubborn and arrogant
Would you still stand and hold my hand 
Would you have shaped me into a better man
Walked through conflict and still gripped my hand

The Free Way (My Secret Sin)

Death rides this legacy with me
Hope floats on this legacy with me 
Given the chance I beg of thee to see
That only death rides this legacy with me 
In this dignified gathering 
The chance to live life only seems flattering 
Under the the heavens we remain caustic critiques
For one we are to exhausted to admit it 
I only wish I could visualize peace for a day 
Left a peasant to utilize his treasures and feast in such a way 
As we each lead expedient lives 
Population needy as infected hives
Let me make this brief and laconic
Spit rhymes similiar to plates, tectonic
Perhaps my good deeds will provide my soul remedy
I promise you won't see me at them pearly gates 
Due to our fathers sympathy
Satan says he's coming back 
Well come on with it, my flesh is forever chapped 
Organisms grazing in the cemetery
Autopsy's blank
Sinners praying for the reasons vary
Even if I could lift my head
My pupils would be blind from the tears they shed
And when they hang me
I pray they slit my throat
Accuzations of riding high
Crooked cops wondering where I hid my dope 
Legs dangling over grit and moat
So silly how they tried to strangle me with soap

the boulevard

Southern belles 
New York lovers
The warmth 
That shelters others
That old man
He just sings away
A folded hand 
Mary sings and she 
Bleeds about the same
You ran off 
Hand in hand
Just to save his band 

There she sits now
On she carries 
For she’s never really down
Violinist 
If you haven’t heard her
Time slows 
But the moments 
Are just a blur 

A widowed smile
At my heels 
She holds life so gently
Such that I can’t feel 
No turning back 
We go on 
For days know no yield 

Dissolve my misery
The garden grows not
Without her tears 
Your almost famous
Upon Broadway
Singing away those years
Lost now found
Your tears lapse 
Against the sand
The stories of a broken man 

Commitment once forgotten
She said 
“I know your not that man”
Lips to forehead
Sighs It’ll be alright 
She walks these streets 
Without the quiet nights
The absence needs her light

Stay tonight
The morning breaks 
To bring you home
Your not so 
All alone

For You All (My Secret Sin)

For those of you whom say 
I have to much hate in this heart
I don’t hate you with this guilty fever
But I don’t love you either
I don’t hate you with this guilty fever 
But I don’t love you either
And yet they tell me things change 
But when you look back on it  
It all seems strange
Promised to return as one to the manger
Tiptoeing over cement splits
Trying to avoid danger
Reality just dealt you a stiff blow 
When evil is near 
Christians feel a drift in flow
This is the humor in life 
Without stress being detrimental
There’s a little hate in the center of all of us
Being semi-sentimental
My life is portrayed on a conspicuous display
Go ahead and kiss if you may
Shooting for heaven
No way we can miss if we pray
Then again I’m likely to on this day
I was as peaceful and innocent as an old man
Stroking his beard 
Just as his time neared

How much more before I break

Dry my tears in this lake 
For I cannot bare to hear your cries
Don’t wanna hear your cries
Oh lord I don’t wanna die

Through the Wire

He dares to be unique,
Standing out from the conventional crowd,
Breaking the fashioned pattern-
Of all typical rappers of today’s age;
He dares to reveal his beliefs
He taunts all that conform with his lyrics;
Knowing the imperfections of the world
But it is more that he-
Verbalizes them and the importance of improvement,
He preaches his words-
Through the wire.

Singing in the shower

I get up early in the morning
To take a bath, and as usual
I will train my voice, singing.

So, I turn on the tap 
And get into the shower;
The water is not hot, nor cold.

I mixed it in perfection; and 
It started slowly beating upon naked body,
Smoothly blending with my morning voice.

I sing a song, my own composition--- 
“All I Wanted To See”,
As I apply soap all over me.

After couples of minutes
Of self cleansing,
And I’m now into the final act.

I gather my strength, for the finale; bold
But as I took turn, my butt hit the knob to the right.
I ended the song, with a shivering; whaah….it’s too cold!

My breath’s gasping, and gasping;
But, wife did not even mind a thing,
For she thought it’s my normal sing.

Waging war on the Beast

You can't entice this mind of ice
leg locking , vice device stalking
full aware of the ware's your hocking

flame you out without a doubt
i'll show you what i'm all about

Think your clever unaware of never

i'll pimp your pimp and then your mother
and then that pimp if he's your other
you read the wrong book now you got took
your chapter and verse will be your hearse

Slow road to lonely , just another trick cloning

believin' your charms will make me stay

Your just the Beast with many mask's
real strength is what you lack
you wait until I turn my back
and then attempt your lame attack

Look me in the eye you Beastly bytch
then we'll play your bait and switch
you outplayed yourself with this game your playing
now you're stuck and you'll be payin'................

Of Sadness (Angel of Sadness)

Today thy angel has come
Home is where thy stranger’s task comes from
Yee may never set gaze among a satisfied sun
 
As for my peers
Nearly every time nears
Goliath of infants
Events of a messiah fading in an instance
Love your angel of sadness
 
Often we dance in hopes that misery happens
Foster homes have caged our madness
 
Son-days exist only as consumed 
Apparently to others I appear doomed 
Damness and hell from every glance looms
Next to new found moments
Every hour now sounds Roman
So we have for every reason to go on men
Sincerely your angel of sadness

Love's Song

As a cool breeze flowing on a warm spring day 
She sings Love’s Song to my soul
As a humming bird flutters about the spring blossoms
She enhances the grace of Love’s Song
She imitates the slow rising of the sun
By enlightening Love’s Song
Under the protection of the tree
She relaxes the tone of Love’s Song
While glancing at the sky’s pillows
She sweetly hums Love’s Song
As her arms enfold yours
She embraces you with Love’s Song
As you hear her whisper your name
She brings much justice to Love’s Song
As she whistles softly in your ear
She glorifies Love’s Song
As she smiles at you beautifully
She brightens Love’s Song
As the warm spring day transforms to a cool spring night
She sways to the melody of Love’s Song
As you glare at the starry skies
As if it were a lullaby, she sings Love’s Song
As you gently lay, alone under the stars
Her beauty reminds you of the melodic tune of Love’s Song
So as I long to win your heart, I look you in your eyes
And serenade you and your soul with Love’s Song

All That These Eyes Have Yet To See

I am here as I was before
Break it down to knees and ask for no more
Over a coarse of time 
You hear a certain voice in a rhyme
Bleed from the eyes
Now you can feel the stress in our cries
A soft bed despite a home with the dead
Is all that these eyes have yet to see
My mission
To rise to a higher position
Reach out with white palms
Not frightened
But I'm no more peaceful than I am calm
Heaven is all these eyes have yet to see
It's a simple poem,
Spoken in a lower volume 
At times we speak on scattered thoughts
Shattered dreams, 
And memories of every battle we've fought
Every morning I'm awakened by your hands
Bless it be the structure of this man
A family and smiles, 
A happy expression on the face of a child 
Is all I've yet to SEE

Dylan Echoes

You play me for stupid.
You strum me with lust
across the brass bed,
all the words lying in the dust
of an old refrain.

You play me for stupid
while your smiles suck,
fluttering eyelashes duck
down to cover this
pain in here.

The slithering stealth
of your seductions
no longer intrigues.
I play my deductions,
subtraction reaction
as you disappear
with your tambourine.

Memory Lane

Come with me, let's remember the days
 when life was easy and free,
  let's turn back the pages of time
   and be young once again.

Can you hear the song playing,
 do you hear its haunting strain?
  do you recall the traces of the music
   coming down memory lane?

My life is so empty, I need to escape,
 those happy days are dead and gone,
  they will never come back again,
   so here I just pretend.

Can you hear the song playing,
 do you hear its haunting strain?
  do you recall the traces of the music
   coming down memory lane?

Yes, it floats down memory lane.

City of Nothing (My Secret Sin)

These sky’s are my prison
And if we could die in heaven
Only the sky’s would be my prison
And yes we we’re dreaming 
We just couldn’t leave the riches and luxuries of this life
My friend 
I truly miss the comfort
The misery of drowning in the night
I’m giving you something in writing 
It’s no longer pain
It’s something like a human substance in lightning
Just like you
I to, would like to witness peace
It brings me back to those lonely days
I’d lay shivering in unsanitized sheets
Hard times and jealousy
Left me a desire to murder my savior
Envy remains a tempted favor
And when it rains 
I can hear him calling my name
Another sunrise
It’s there, under the stars, beneath the sky’s
A world of temptation in his eyes
Lets go there, lets escape this city of nothing
Yet the sky’s are my prison
And if we could die in heaven
Only the sky’s would be our prison
And we could escape this city of nothing

Heavenly Made (My Secret Sin)

Come listen to our life story
Suffer for something more important
My plan to strategize
Prepare for a burden 
Unless they let us slide
Hard times, you’re at home 
But how do you provide
Once more, I find myself asking why
I’m guessing it only rains when the heavens cry
And even though darkness doesn’t seem to fade
We’ve been blessed with something lighter than shade
Dear sister don’t cry
All I see is something heavenly made
My criminal elevation
My peers doom, a similar revelation
A lifetime subtracted from a broken quotation 
Who’s gone love me, whether I’m right or wrong
Was I so unright to live a life alone
Write my truest feelings, my deepest thoughts in a song
And I’ve been waiting for days to hear your voice
A decision in my worst ways, it was all my choice
We could never be enemies
For you will always find a friend in me
And that’s all that matters
What remains after our dreams shatter
And even when the nights refuse to fade
We’ve been blessed with some than shade
Dear sister, don’t cry
For all I see is something heavenly made

Independent Woman

Just passing through
With a dream of a life time 
A picture of century 
To obtain my delightful life dreams 
I am a figure that stand tall as a super model
I have long black hair and a tall and skinny body
Know man can resist me 
I am a strong and independent woman a woman of class
That's what I am you may look at me like I'm not 
But if only you knew how my smile capture your man eyes
It's the way my hips swing when I walk pass you 
It's the way I talk 
That determine I'm a woman 
A woman that's me 
A woman of the century

Out of Time (My Secret Sin)

For why have I fallen into the depths of your arms
Given you my life, my respiration, my blood
Only to search for your hidden love
I’ve been flirting with death for way to long
And now it’s time to go on home
Yes my friend, it’s time to journey on home
So let’s dream
Let’s get away from this strict sense of reality
Live life in the past time
Follow me
Let’s dream
Let’s get away from reality
Fade away with the past for one last time
Where might you place this new born soul
With life, with time, I have given old
From the bliss of her lips to yours and mine 
Memories of how you chose her
And time leaks faster as death seeks closer
So let’s dream
Let’s get away from this strict sense of reality
Live life in the past time
Follow me
Let’s dream
Let’s get away from reality
Fade away with the past for one last time

Walls of Berlin (Angel of Sadness)

Will I grieve you, only if you grieve me 
Said you couldn’t rest 
So I lay in this casket with you 
A bouquet in a basket, why risk the truth 
Delusional I may be 
A happy ending, a sympathetic conclusion 
Is something we’d pay to see 
Cross your arms and lay with me 
The aspects it’s okay to be 
You or me, whom shall we grieve 
There are certain things I need from you 
Like we feed 
There are pertinent things I need you to do 
As we grow to be adults 
We simply do what needs to be done 
Across from the morgue 
Smiling faces soaked in with the sun 
Outside these walls of Berlin 
Suited individuals call for her sins 
Will you grieve me, only if I grieve you 
Through the many hours of this day 
Tragic circumstances flower our May 
In a declining sun set it reflects from my window pane 
A metaphor of my life lived in feign 
As if I demand that you be my friend 
Take this childs hand to the end 
Down those spiral steps 
Admire the depths of a single breath 
Your or me, whom shall we grieve? 
A mother dropped her bags to comfort her daughter 
On and on through the years she brought her 
These missing links of murder 
Kissing a stench never before heard of 
Full of bars, cool as scars 
Precious jewels of mars 
Like I lost my tongue 
I’ll start a thousand wars 
For I will not be forgotten!!!

Life of A Writer (My Secret Sin)

Tear by tear, year to year
Day by day
Memories they all fade away
Tear by tear
Voices in my ears 
Words may lay
Promises are all there’s left to say
I may wade through volcanic vaults 
My peers never picture me painted at a hault 
Jaded memories are tainted, lost and caught
A chance given to blow it 
A new set of balls, just living to grow it 
I’ll never faulter or kneel down to cry at the alter
Through adversity
It seems my surroundings curse at me
And even if I feel an emotional down
I couldn’t bare it in front of you
So much commotion 
Just to share something as blunt as the truth
The withered bed our readers have made for us
Through every line, Scritch, scratch, or mixed up batch
They forever adore us
As if their thank you letters or 
“Congratulations you put together a good poem,”
Could bore us 
What’s worse than being beaten by tabloids? 
Extension cords
Checks with giant letters that say “VOID”
Of course baring the voice of being a lord
For never having more than we could afford
Beef and battles 
Is better than fagots on relief and saddles
The ocean is open and blue 
But nature won’t let you paddle 
And perhaps, we’ll die 
And for us our peers will forget to say goodbye
Never to be remembered 
When we reach those golden gates 
Just pray that we are a member

My Secret Sin

My situation is no better but nor is it worse
Rehearsing grace at the dinner table
I ain’t hungry, my stomach just hurts
Another day has passed 
Now I’m just one day away
From seeing yesterdays cast 
And on these black pages lies, my secret sin
I’ve learned that you can let go of your pain
Just by helping another get through theirs
Who would’ve thought, you find someone who cared
My misery and stress 
I print it in between those college rules
Even when my patience is guessed 
I choose to remain peaceful and cool 
Slowly run your fingers along these black pages
Feel for your selves my secret sin
We don’t have those same love songs 
That once could take you away
Tear you apart, when you have nothing to say
And put you back together on that same shattered dream
On which we lay
Shed tears when I think back on the past eight teen years
And I apologize for not being sincere
Especially at times when you would tell me 
Your only love was for me still being here
Heart to heart, closer than apart 
One those black pages lies my secret sin
I’m going to find my way to my grave regardless
So many say I’m stubborn and heartless 
Everyday I searched for a home
My loved ones were gone 
Pardon me please 
For my soul is partly at ease

How Does It Feel

Why do you stare at me
Am I supposed to stare back at you
Who are you anyway
Can I get to know you

I walk along this lonely street
Why is there no one here
The silence was so cold and dark
Don't surround me with your fears

You took my life away
How can I get it back 
I can't move from this place
I am so alone in here

Are you that shadow I always see
Is it you that give me this warm
Or is it just my imagination
I am suffered under this reddish storm

You had burn me alive under the fire
You did not like my roses 
It is so red that it makes you evil
Or is it my imaginations

But what happened to the eyes i used to see
Where has it gone to
Why does it change into an evil gaze
What happened to you

What had you done
You took all my life 
You took away that was meant for me
You took everything out of my sight

Gain Strength over my fears
It's my turn to haunt you
It is my revenge now
I want your blood, I want you

You won't get to see my usual eyes 
It will cover with total darkness
You will never see my smiles
It has been taken away

I heard your heart pounding
I can hear your scream in your selfless mind
This is how I felt when you hurt me
This is how I felt when you think you are right

Why do you run away
I thought you like the darkness
You love to torture someone else's heart
You love to torture my heart

I have a knife on my hand
It is filled with my revengeful blood
Are you afraid now
Will you try to escape now

Laughed all I want
It is my sweet revenge
I am always the one to blamed
Left you to get all the freedom

Now, it is your turn to bleed
It your turn to feel
To think what is real
This will make you sick

Hurt me all you want
Your heartless soul reminds me of your fear
Leave me in the dark anywhere
I will make sure you will stay there 

Evil heart I had developed in me
Can you feel me haunting your mind
You are cold, I wonder why
Try to find something you can't already find

So, how does it feel
Does it hurt your heart inside
That is how I felt
When you blamed every single thing to me

Don't go against my strength 
I will go against your fear
You had a weakness too
You will wish you had disappear

So how does it feel
Are you scared now
Are you upset
That's Too bad
It is not over yet...

Confusion

Don't confuse me
With these binding light
I don't want to see it anymore!

I am so lost
In a world where nothing matters
But I am stuck down here
And I don't to be stuck anymore!

Help me!
Help me please!
My soul begs for freedom

It is like living in hell
Living with fear
Living with the darkness
And I don't want to live like this anymore!

Don't confuse me
With all your empty thoughts
I don't want to see it anymore!

If Ever (My Secret Sin)

If ever I should 
Race for Hell 
Swear on my grave with palms begging to be nailed
If ever I should 
Hope for the best, enter my home as a guest 
Mention I love you, and simply forget to think of you
If ever I should
Now why should I pray when I got arms to bare 
Alarms to scare, violence to share 
Live this life by a strict sense of principles
Wash the sins from my flesh and hope my past is rinseable 
Why am I so eager to constantly please 
Help those that lost their feet, back to their knees 
Give others both my hands, help them stand 
When selfishness is my main feature as a man 
And the truth is, I can't help but think of you
Grip your hands and whisper I love you 
Must we discuss how I lost your trust 
Look into a crystal ball
And vision a future that doesn't consist of the two of us
Gun in palms, rehearsing a common verse from Psalms 
No father figure, holding his daughter in arms
Place her on satin pillows, given a good night charm
In all hopes loves relaxes on her covers and keeps her warm
I surrender take me to his cross and nail me
Scream in blasphemy as these demons trail me 
Mistakes keep calling me back
Heartaches keep me falling on tracks
And I know my soul is shallow 
Forgive it being constantly in battle

and who said what again?

Who are you in this Act?

Why should I listen to you
If i'm not sure if i can trust you
and what's in it for me
and i know all about cleaning up after me

hush hush hush

I'll hide the soap

I'll keep myself in line

I'll make them laugh
I'll make them cry

Weill be the best team
but why should I?

Hush Hush

Such a mess

Strawberry Happy and Sad

Singing in the rain,
I hummed the words to myself,
The lyric formed just about right,
Rhyming and timing like gel,
The words fell like pieces of jigsaw,
And each did express my inner thoughts well,
I sang and sang ,
Till my inner brought the music along,
The instruments formed out of thin air,
The sounds were well formed chime and bell,
Each note completed each word of the lyric,
And completed it rather swell,
Mind was in tune and  swirling fast,
Unmind of the weather,
My limbs broke into moves,
The moves that formed a structured dance with steps,
I even forgot if anybody was around and watching,
I was simply cast into a magic and spell,
Suddenly from nowhere,
I felt a rude screech,
That disturbed my music and lyric as well,
My body took a large impact,
And I was in a pell mell,
The pain numbed me and I forgot all,
Only to wake up getting medical help,
For days to come and,
Remember my mind was not singing and dancing at all,
Somebody did say it right,
Happy and sad tidings travel in queue,
And never be too delirious,
So as to loose even “yourself”.

Manakin (Pt.1) (My Secret Sin)

Instead of being slaughtered by my conscience
I'd rather let you treat me how you treat me
Make it a lil easier for me to stand again
So for now you can label me your personal manakin
Ain't no need in me ignoring these voices in my head
To apologize and keep pissing
I'm in love with guilt and I can't stop kissing 
Now it all started toward the end of may
Maybe even the mid point of June
I don't know it was just one of those days
They were newly engaged, freshly married
Claimed to be there forever 
To help me through the misery I so longed to carry
Doug had just passed and Mike had just gotten off work
And until this day I convinced myself
That he just used that to be a jerk
Well anyways he jumped down my throat 
Almost one too many times for nothing
I chose to walk away four times 
Until he chose to push me for a fifth and make it into something
So like wise I became irritable
To the faces of those that others thought were so charitable
And perhaps I was wrong to call his wife out of her name
After eight years of friendship, such a shame
And as usual I became the blame
Kicked me out in the middle of the night
Being he pushed me and I never responded 
I never really considered it a fight
So Instead of being slaughtered by my conscience
I'd rather let you treat me how you treat me
Make it a lil easier for me to stand again
So for now you can label me your personal manakin

Don't Mourn Me (My Secret Sin)

Dear world do not mourn me 
I’m under the earth and still this world will turn me
So dear world don’t mourn me
I put my soul in a rhyme
Accepting the fact 
That I’ll never grow old with time
After Sunday 
We should expect to see things a lot different on Monday
Should we spend less time living 
And more time thinking of tomorrow
That for which I do not have the answer
Would you borrow another’s sorrow
Just so you could live another day in horror
Saw Mtv’s Cribs
It’s kind of funny how these celebrity’s live
I guess if you got the money, why not
If you’re saved, then why go where it’s hot
So dear world don’t mourn me
Under the earth and still it turns me
So dear world do not mourn me
As promised from my father
He’d release sperm, run out, and not even bother
It doesn’t really bother me 
I just need someone to blame if case becomes robbery
Sleeping on couches
Tempted thoughts of stealing money from pouches
How can I love this world 
When it so often makes me hurl
Better yet, how can I tell the world to keep hope 
When I’m about to lose it 
Wanted water, got saliva
But I thank got for letting me choose his spit
So dear world do not mourn me 
I’m under the world and still this earth will turn me
So dear world do not mourn me

It's Over (My Secret Sin)

It’s over, It’s over
I hate it when it’s like this
But it’s over, It’s over
I hate it that it’s like this
But it’s over
My success is stress 
Whether I see forth fit 
My chance to exhibit a new exhibition
Pivoting a broken tradition
My pen and pad 
The only utensils to accompany me on this expedition
Put my life in words, day by day
Now in the verdict, you can feel my pain
Gave you tragedy after tragedy
Disaster after triumph, conceal my shame
I’m rushing this book, cause I’ve been sitting here
Coping and pasting material to paper
Scratching my head, when thoughts vanish like vapor
To withstand my span with writing
I put it together like thunder and lightning
Worrying faces, plea bargain hurrying cases 
Walking down Forsyth
Got me desperate for that life “Like”
Lost tears as they bury your peers
Another freeway accident
Times like those
We see our seat belts and attempt to fasten it
Shed the possibility
Of becoming dead by not accepting reality
I hate it when it’s like this
But it’s over, it’s over
I hate it when it’s like this 
But it’s over, it’s over

Trying (My Secret Sin)

Trying to find someone who cares 
Trying to find someone to provide a breeze of fresh air
The moment I do, I mess it up 
So eager to comment 
Steadily trying to guess your trust
Who would truly want to bless this dust
Put everything in a plus and make it a must
I’m trying to find that person in the back of my mind
I’m trying to find a better reason to live than a line
How can I hate you
When you so honestly demonstrate what is true
Memories are tainted pictures you painted
I’m stretched and jaded
Yet in front of my eyes you live one
Every triumph I fetched is faded
Yet I stand here wondering how we get alone
I’m trying to find a shoulder to shrug
I’m trying to find a person to hug

My Day (Angel of Sadness)

This is what I’ve become
So this is who I am 
Again! This is what I’ve become
So this is who I am
It takes this art to see
At most times my conscience takes apart from me
Still my people show me no love 
Even hell knows I’ve been cursed with a gift from above
Try to teach him, but he resides with morbid thoughts
Until I am gone, my soul orbits my loss
Told me once but I do not learn
Like that of these timely hands
I will not turn
And as you think of him
Your mind will constitute that he became your rapture
Your only selfish capture
Here I am lost and alone
Even after your premonitions has shown me gone
I see the truth and consequences
Still my response is senseless
And on to those fiery pits, I’ll be on my way
When a Siberian nation can no longer wear mitts
You will know it’s become my day
This is what I’ve become
So this is who I am

Tears and Smiles (Angel of Sadness)

I shall watch
And I shall laugh 
I shall hold my last breath before I die
And released it with smiles of one last gasp! 
Once again in this solemn place we meet 
Perhaps I came to bring the battle to our feet 
Carry on with these memories of time 
Presents of eternity
Perhaps I've been away for way to long
But I'm here to present a scenery through rhymes 
Just maybe I could substitute my misery 
In exchange for the essience of suffering internal 
A cast I miss so dearly
Now in my moments of less truimph my enemies fear me 
So open to a blind side
I kind of figured 
That white chariot would be a kind ride 
These heavenly possessions become demonic 
Seems my obession 
Has been plagued with something worse than bubonic 
A ball and chain pronounced as life 
I suddenly recall 
A pain that accounts for living twice 
Who knows the means of how this came to be
Still it's plain to see
That somehow your presence remains in me 
Will I live To see my children make similiar mistakes? 
It's a mystery indeed, But somehow I can see myself
Getting away with a small portion of fate 
Things will never change
Yet I'm blessed and still living
Angels forever seem strange 
Who would've guessed that this life was given 
Still my presence is only here to retrieve a promise 
In which we each believe
But no sooner was it granted it was stripped from us 
So forgive us for our sins
Spare us our grace 
As we open our eyes to witness the END 
I shall watch
And I shall laugh 
I shall hold my last breath before I die, 
And released it with smiles of one last gasp!

Do You Remember How I Felt For You

(Devotion)


Shared your laughter, 
Felt your pain
Kissed away your tears 
In the pouring rain

Don’t know how things
Between us went so bad~
My body’s broken… spirit is sad 
Don’t see how you could be so glad…

You see me stricken with such grief,
I search for you and there is no relief
How could you treat a love this way?
Think of you and an ocean of tears
Now roll down my face…

Do you remember the shared laughter and
The pouring rain~ 
Maybe the soothing touch 
During, your times of pain…
The gentle kiss that took away your tears
Oh how I tried to allay your fears

Do you remember love and how I felt for you…

Marie (My Secret Sin)

If these are the last words off my tongue
Let it be known, my final songs been sung
And Marie, Momma, you could never be wrong
But I always knew that I wouldn’t live long
Warm hugs in the lobby
Now it is your precious smile
That has this young man sobbing 
My objective 
To remain faithful and effective
And perhaps I came up on my own
Time spent is time blown
And I promise not to be a dead beat
Or let my enemies beat my head in the seat
Until I’m gone and deceased 
I’ll take that same stubborn path
Prophecies of cowards scheming 
To lay me asleep on a bloody mat
At times, we can be so responsible 
And act with such charisma 
Shooting for T-O-P-S, expelled as a senior
Now I don’t even know what my future career is ma
Still awaiting happiness to make a series premiere
Something as bizarre as gothic fairies being sincere
As an adolescent, I conquered the lessons 
Slaughtered consequences, jumped fences,
Kept my audience in suspense
Constantly hitting them hard with something intensive
Every now and then I come across something offensive
Crush them into saw dust with grammatical utensils

My Heart Bleeds

The effort and time
Just to lose my mind
So blind that I cannot see
That all I am is loves’ lost tragedy
Time has not been on my side 
Makes me want to turn, run and hide
From all the tragedy my life has seen 
Makes my heart bleed 
From the hurt that feeds
Lead me to a new direction
Erase the old, make corrections

Living in tragedy 
What has this life made of me? 
Hard and cold, cold as stone 
Here I sit again alone 
Taking the pain and putting it away 
To shout it out some other day 
Love’s lost tragedy 
Made me see 
My heart bleeds 

So good together in each others company 
What led you to cheat on me? 
We were first-rate from the first date 
I thought you were my true mate
Now it’s ended 
My heart needs mended 
Blended, with sorrow and confusing lines 
Oh God show me a way to go, just a sign 

Living in tragedy 
What has this life made of me? 
Hard and cold, cold as stone 
Here I sit again alone 
Taking the pain and putting it away 
To shout it out some other day 
Love lost tragedy 
Made me see 
My heart bleeds 

The hurt might go away 
On my knees all I can do is look up and pray 
And say, that this won’t happen again today
Scorned, heart too torn, to be reborn 
Love again, not convinced 
I haven’t found love since

Living in tragedy 
What has this life made of me? 
Hard and cold, cold as stone 
Here I sit again alone 
Taking the pain and putting it away 
To shout it out some other day 
Love lost tragedy 
Made me see 
My heart bleeds

Through It All (My Secret Sin)

Through the sand, 
Through the fog, I got your hand
Through the sand 
And through the fog, I have your hand
I claim to be a man 
Yet in reality, I pray you grasp my hand
Hit a bump and stumble 
Rely on triumph to stand humble
Days before nights
Nights after days, I firmly crumble
Through the blood, we wade through mud
Paddle through love
And shiver up after warm hugs
Most poets write about fallen leaves
And disassembled trees
At times friendships resemble fees 
A lot of us write, but I’m like, okay
Pass the tragedies, what more can I say
From the caskets to the empty baskets
Why, How come
Why so many ask it 
Winter is shrugs, Summer is hugs 
And I guess Autumn is lonely doves 
Scream and shout 
However, you are forgiven for the profanity
 That leaks toward your mouth 
This person you see
Until the end is who I’mma be 
Palm to palm
Be there for me until the storm is calmed
Deliver my pain and as it reigns 
Grip my hand
Through the sand, through the fog
I got your hand

Manakin (Pt.2) (My Secret Sin)

Instead of being slaughtered by my conscience
I'd rather let you treat me how you treat me
Make it a lil easier for me to stand again
So for now you can label me your personal manakin
After the brawl
I stayed the night in the parking lot and I ain't gone lie
If I had no other choice but to be homeless I'd rather die
A week later I showed up in Richwood at my sisters door steps
With the few fabrics I had left
My clothes stunk from being left out in the rain
But hell, who am I to complain
Chilled there for about a month
Then she and I fell into it 
Basically because I was still cool with her ex
So I bailed on that scene in search for the next 
And I feel guilty that her father past
Being the last time I saw them I needed a ride
And he was the only person I could ask
I started school in August
My final year, I was finally a senior
Felt like I could be praised even by Athena
About the last week of the month
I found myself walking away from a teacher
Next thing I know I'm expelled 
They tried to keep it a secret 
But the community found out 
About the school boards mess up 
Before the documents were mailed
Still that ain't change nothing 
So I had to move to Mangham
Again, I became a real popular attraction
And as you know that brings jealousy and envy
So I was again split by the fraction
I guess I should've just kept it to myself and walked away
Because I ended up in the ring with nine different opponents
I guess they found my misery and decided to clone it
So Instead of being slaughtered by my conscience
I'd rather let you treat me how you treat me
Make it a lil easier for me to stand again
So for now you can label me your personal manakin

The Big Show

 

Sitting here in the dark thinking

Thinking,

Listening to Johnnie Taylor

Taking me back down that old

Memory lane..

Singing “I believe in you”

While the rain beats against my

Window pane..

All the fun memories of my

School days ring out loud &

Clear..

While skating to Disco Lady

Eating cotton candy and never

Gain a pound..

Dancing close holding hands

Moving across the floor..

Shake oh shake, shake all a

Round..

Now here comes soul heaven

He was having such a good

Time..

Seeing all his buddies in this

One night only shindig..

Line up to play their songs

Johnnie Taylor said we need to

Buy our tickets..

The tickets are running out mighty

Fast...

Hey, I love all those guys whom

To many to call their names

But, I'm not ready to buy that 

Ticket just yet!

I know this concert will be jumping

Standing around with Sam Cooke 

Singing "A Change Gonna Come"

Even Marvin Gaye singing "Let's

Get It On"

So many I can’t mention..

Just think about "Lonely Teardops"

Jackie Wilson dance to his own beat..

Johnnie say it raining,

But everybody just stood there..

While King Curtis Blue "Played His

Soul Serenade"

Elvis Presley

Singing "His Blue Suede Shoes"

The Mighty Temptations singing

"Ain't To Proud To Beg"

He said the Bar-kays tuning their guitars

While Z.Z Hill Singing "Down Home

Blues"

Oh so many I cannot mention..

Johnnie didn’t want to wake up

Cause he was having such a good

Time..

Amidst all those great super stars..

Oh, yes he was having such a good

Time...

Singing "Soul Heaven"

He buy his ticket to this big one

Night Show..

So he said he was having such a

Good time..

With all his super star buddies "Singing

In soul Heaven"

I know that concert was jumping with

With all those super stars singing

In that one night only concert in soul

Heaven....

You see Johnnie Taylor said he was havin

Such a good time...

And he decided to join his friends in the land

They call soul Heaven..

For this one night big show...

Unknown Collectors (Angel of Sadness)

At times we seem together as one 
Yet divided, by a separate peace 
A fresh piece of carne at a leopards feast 
You love your mother, yet you hate your niece 
The difference of what we do in life 
The suspense your neighbors summon 
As you sometimes brutally yet gently massage your wife 
This is for my audience, my caretaker 
This loneliness that satisfies your heartbreaker 
The finale of one journey 
Now finer mystery’s path a previous existing path 
My weakest subject 
Life could never be intensive as math 
Once upon a time 
We abused these utensils used to pass a laugh 
As I lie across this highway 
Crossed by an evil smirk, should I die this day 
But this is for my audience, my caretaker 
This loneliness that satisfies your heartbreaker 
One more season to premiere 
Unspoken chores 
My reason to consider sympathy my dear 
My lungs and finger tips 
Instruments, hung, and yet linger over infant cribs 
Beneath my nails, peeling scabs from my flesh 
Seiged in hell, revealing punctured abs 
Some old, some fresh 
A lasting resting place 
Man is passing, time so fragile 
Yet it seems to be forever testing this vase

In the Middle

I stay here
Right here, in the middle
of all of this world
watching,
as it slowly turns rapid spins
leaving me right here
in the middle,
as my life, and you
slowly drift away
I cry to you,
the reader of this poem
wishing you would see
how much I need you
What's wrong with this picture?
Why is it broken?
Open your eyes and see what's in front of you.
Find me out here...
In the Middle

Weekends At The Soup

Quiet as a grave
Family things to contend with,
But not me babe,

I lie in my bed,
I don't move a muscle
Don't say a thing

But my Blues go walkin'
Blues' go walkin

My Blues go walkin' to town.


Inspired by Greg Brown's "Blues Go Walkin"-
A must have for any musical inclined Souper
Look for album "Covenent"- at least 4 great songs.

U & I

Little thoughts of us bein together.
Hopes and dreams of us lasting forever.
Small images of a future for me and u.
Things we'll say and things we'll do.
Me and u are like one.
We love eachother and we love to have fun.
We love tha same things and love who we are.
We bothh pray that our love will go far.
We're like two love birds on a clear summer night.
We dont really argue and we dont really fight.
We'd have tha perfect relationship if we spent more time together.
But the time we have had together feels like forever. 
It's u and me til the end.
It's where our love began and where it will end.

Caesar (Angel of Sadness)

I fear no man, no beast
I randomly select souls and sell them for no lease
I walk with flesh, I gallop with clouds 
Yet on this heavenly palette, I stand with gods ever so proud
I marry for beauty, I sin for lust
My hopes pleasure is honestly a must
Watch for winds from the east, for I have come again
I trust no one, I spoil loyalty with morals
Life is no fun, death is royalty in earthly portals
I trout with my shoulders squared
For in this battle, “good,” I have faired
My mission to satisfy the grips of greed by our egos need
My vision to bring war, 
Tears and sanctuary to my every enemy as they plead
Watch for a cool breeze from the east, for I’ve come again
I will bring riches and luxury to the palms of we poor
I am guilty of taking the everyday that we so hesitantly adore
My equals will love me, your gods will look above me
Yet the jewels of envy will so long to hug me
I will be murdered by those I keep so distant from disasters art
Yet so close to my heart
I will ask why, my keepers will have one last cry
I will carry through will one final task and die 
Watch for winds from the east for I have come again
I will haunt you in your dreams
I will taunt you in your casual scenes
I will take from you, what you have given to me
The guilt the horror of triumph, misery, and loneliness
That I will never get to live and see
Watch for a cool breeze from the east 
Watch for hell to fall from heaven just to tease this beast
I will be spoiled will praises once more, for I have come again

Melodious Traveler

Traveling troubadour , opening locked door's 
key's in my mind , where prose has been stored
'tho a minstrel without music , melody adored
syncopated captivation straight from my core

Strumming your heartstrings if you'll allow
soft pillow talk , mocked comfort resounds
inhibition , turned exibition , the anxious aloud
crying sweet ecstasy , restraint won't be found

Eargasm , body spasm , no chasm this time
interlocking tangles befitting a mime

Accidental exchanges are pleasantly doled
coincidental interludes inspire the soul

Thing's happen for a reason , no mere coincidence
hearts achin' , believin' , trusting in love's innocence

carefully gauging intervals of movement
hopefully engaging relations of improvement........

So where ever you are , just know i'm not far
shrinking distance's , from my heart to your's.......

Karaoke music

To the sound of karaoke music I created master pieces. Songs with no words just musical 
emotion help bring forth my emotion and my lyrical talents down on paper. So as I sit here and 
write the karaoke music keeps on playing it's like now I finally have the song I used to hum in my 
head whenever I was bored. Now I finally have some of the troubles taken off my shoulders. 
With my karaoke music playing I can have endless books filled with poetry. The music guides 
me... It never surprises me. The words that leak from my soul are words that I couldn't have 
pulled out with the sounds of my karaoke music. So if you know me like I think you do... poetry is 
an art form and I take it to all limits. So play a little karaoke and I won't sing to it... but I will write 
and than maybe recite the words that now have formed.

For love

Why does tomorrow seem so close?
How come my dreams never seem to float?
I want to fall in love. 
Everyone else seems to have felt it
and feels the need to boast 

Let's take another toast
So I can numb the agony
Let me pull myself together
my best girl friend appears to be mad at me
I close my eyes and dream of you.
Your always in disguise so I never notice you

When will my reality combine with my dreams
I feel like I'm coming apart by the seams  
I float along this merry little stream
of idiotic thoughts of whoever he might be
When I reach the end will you be waiting for me?

I have this huge urge to sin and I don't know
when I will ever reach my destination 
All I know is that I'll never give up waiting
I'll sit on this curb until you pull up in your SUV
or maybe on a bike well see

I just want a glimpse of how you will be
Just a taste would be enough to satisfy my needs
I'd give anything to know how it feels
I'd give the world to hear you say I was your world.

I wouldn't care if my clothes didn't match anymore
Or if I gained a lot of weight because 
I'd no longer be in need of a figure 
All this beauty would be reserved for you my cutie

I'd never have to ask for anything 
because I'd have found love and I think 
that look would really suit me.
For love to really woe me
I'd go to heaven
After it pursued me

Ask me how it feels

my man
melting and kissing
this Hagar woman
I sat on his lap.
And please, let it be fast,
before my heart dries out,
for this time
you pushed it too far,
my womb is just as good, 
my love is even better,
it should have been me,
damn you God, damn me.

The ground will soundly sleep
under the steps 
of our empty souls.

Make me unwise:
show me the dagger
and ask me how it feels.

Short Story (Angel of Sadness)

I’ve put everything I have in a final attempt
A simple procedure, from which I seem to be exempt
I want to love, I want to touch, I so want to feel
But with my every emotion dwelling on the past 
It seems I’ll be held until your serpent comes for his final meal
A few loved ones, A few friends
Above our sun, I ask for a glorious end 
I guess I’m praying for hell, one last victorious sin
I often question myself, Is that all that matters
I’ll share with you, the smiles, the tears, oh the laughter
I’ve been running from everyone else’s testimony
Yet I find myself shaping my own
So cunning, severely less than lonely
No use in escaping, when it’s over, I’ll be gone
But no worries for death will be my final journey alone
Apathy forever slapping me
Yes I’m troubled, and I know every person has their issues
How can I be a better man 
When I couldn’t forget, forgive, or care to miss you
And when this song is over
No longer will your tribulations belong on these shoulders
I’m shrugging them now, carry your problems yourself
Even when my darkness dims, I’ll forever adore what’s left
Because I am alive, tomorrow I’ll be gone
My own words, a short story of this individual’s life
At any moment, I feel you’re alone; I’ll give you this song
Because I am alive, and tomorrow we’ll be gone

Walls of Berlin (Angel of Sadness)

Will I grieve you, only if you grieve me
Said you couldn’t rest
So I lay in this casket with you
A bouquet in a basket, why risk the truth
Delusional I may be
A happy ending, a sympathetic conclusion
Is something we’d pay to see
Cross your arms and lay with me 
The aspects it’s okay to be
You or me, whom shall we grieve
There are certain things I need from you 
Like we feed
There are pertinent things I need you to do
As we grow to be adults
We simply do what needs to be done
Across from the morgue
Smiling faces soaked in with the sun
Outside these walls of Berlin
Suited individuals call for her sins
Will you grieve me, only if I grieve you
Through the many hours of this day 
Tragic circumstances flower our May
In a declining sun set it reflects from my window pane
A metaphor of my life lived in feign
As if I demand that you be my friend 
Take this childs hand to the end
Down those spiral steps 
Admire the depths of a single breath
Your or me, whom shall we grieve?
A mother dropped her bags to comfort her daughter
On and on through the years she brought her
These missing links of murder 
Kissing a stench never before heard of 
Full of bars, cool as scars
Precious jewels of mars
Like I lost my tongue 
I’ll start a thousand wars
For I will not be forgotten!!!

Willy-Fred, Willy-Fred

Willy, don't be silly...
As for Fred, check your head,
Once again, you got things
all wrong,
I wasn't writting poetry,
nor out to steal a song...
I do get the feeling,
Your disdain for me is strong,

That's okay,
I gotta say,
No loss in disbelief,
But don't question me,
Cause you don't know
If I were a lyrical thief,
What if I did write those
songs,
And held the copyright too,
And let others record them,
You think other, I might do?

So check out the copyright credits,
And wake me when you're through,
Cause as for your snide comments,
I've heard enough from you.

Voices

It was the crack of dawn,
When I first heard her song,
And it made me sit up in bed,
No such beautiful vibrations
Had ever before filled my head...

I sensed it was a death throes lilt
And was the last chance to be heard
I shivered in rapture sonic
And wished I could understand each word

She was joined by others,
Though lesser of skill,
I strained my ears,
Up until...
Sad silence blanketed the earth
And I knew there would be no more
such song...
Of such beauty there would be a dearth,
Such a loss seemed so wrong
The world would hence have less worth.

Hear?

If you unveiled inside,
I'd be nowhere spied.
Oh? We're back here again.
In here, there'll be help to send
From he who wants a peer again.
Out here, 'Whats?' are queer my friend.
That we're still back here again.
Watchin' you walk before you
Before you walk before you, I deplore you
You implore me, I using us, using we.
Using them. Oozing Sea. You say ' Oh Say, can you see'.
'What the hell' you think lies before me.
You fake proof as truth.
A spoof of a poof.
Up in Smoke. Down as avalanche.
Sun Breath Breeze, Fiery Earth Watered,
By Tree Leaf's Branch.
I don't care, then best beware,
A demon who loves you,
Will take that dare.
But you wanna coast like a burnt piece of toast.
A maiden ship goin' down, There she blows.
You take a step; a loan, a smile.
Growth is fear so add aload to the pile.
Be cause thats just the way egos egos.
Sufferin e'ry which way the wind really blows.

You Make Me Smile

Each time you walk
through that door, 
you make me smile

When you say, 
“good morning love”
a smile rushes in
like this river across my face

You speak to me
with prefect clarity
Those warm hugs
surrounded me

Then, I laugh
with an angel's joy.
knowing that
your words are
like these wild cinnamon wings
that nourish my soul

Each time you walk through
that golden door, 
you make me smile
in perfect harmony

Then, let me say it,
"I love you so"

Pray of dreams

Rehearsal of his dreams
pray in tears being practical
sufficient to fit his own salary.

In his wake dispose himself.
As divine servant as he is, he was asked
"where to sail to his oozing light".

"Never thought a port to settle" he said.
With his response flesh settled in soil. 
Dried his body and it was cold as time passed.

Given him a second chance-
Once again hope he will be touched in cooling grave.
His historical perseverance-
honor the honesty before fly away-

Asked himself once again.
Wish to sit in same table as he did.
well known end-
scared himself in tears

From Ur Angel (Angel of Sadness)

For my angel I miss you
If I had the heart
I’d close my eyes and kiss you
I can see you’re leaving
If life was a distraction
I’d be forever breathing
Even when my heart seemed repossessed
Still you cherished what ever it was in my chest
For my angel I miss you
If I had the heart 
I close my eyes and kiss you
Outside my window of opportunity
There was something about you
That continuously consumed me
I’ll be there for whom ever you choose to be
After all you watched me travel like a refugee
Through the flesh a pure soul is so hard to see
For my angel I miss you
If I had the heart 
I’d close my eye and kiss you
I speak of a rose petal 
That would only wither away
If I were to touch her
She’d softly say, take your time, no rush
Days would pass and our lips would nearly touch
Yet her eyes would remind me
It was merely a crush

Tomorrow (Angel of Sadness)

Don’t let me see tomorrow
Die; drown another victim of yesterdays sorrow
So please don’t let me see tomorrow
My lovely world 
I cannot take much more of this horror
So I beg of you
Do not let me see tomorrow
To live is suicide
Happiness
Nothing more than another thorn true to my thigh
Controversy and senseless drama
Seems to never hurt me
I make it hell for any individual to verse me
Condense less as thunder
Your love our smile, my weakest point
Above my sadness
A child whom seekest what we don’t 
And even if there is no heaven above me
Perhaps several days of grace will hug me
As my adversaries wash their faces in the disaster I see
Miles of redemption lace as death casually chases after me
Judge me 
And you’re another gospel lain, slain in a white chariot
Even in the mist of darkness
Like a ghost she came plain as a stain
As your wife she’d bare it all begging for pleasure
Beneath her trials 
Temptation buried a lustful treasure
Orgasms vary in a trustful measure

Forever I Dream (Angel of Sadness)

These dreams are yours these dreams are mine 
Yet misery seems to be this poor mans only paradise 
Reality seems to be the only place to hide 
Trying to make the best of what I have 
This is my life’s engraved path 
No mercy in tears 
Only sympathy if you’re worthy of fears 

Some one shake me from these seizures 
I’m constantly burning of statistical leisure’s 
Bed time story’s, kisses from head to foot 
Anyway, you want to please her 
Given age, I was born from a rapist 
Forced upon passion, as an infant in a wound 
How can I escape this? 
Simply exposed to this diluted area 
You never know, she could’ve recruited malaria 
Possibilities that her insides polluted, scaring her 
My collarbones hurt, the thought of rubbing a loser 
Growing up a substance abuser 
Strapped with intoxicated lungs and a low self-esteem 
The tools needed for this living 
all I have left are dreams 
Trying to get by on less than minimum wage 
Drooling over paper 
like there is cinnamon on this page 
I could be a heart ache 
or I could be apart of the break 
Cold water in my eyes, what ever it takes to wake 
Bread crumbs in my left hand, I choose to give or try 
Given life I’m only promised to die 
Pencil in hand, thoughts bloating my brain 
By gods’ grace, I have been scared with pain 
Only washing my face when it rains 
And most of the time, the skies release hail 
So now I’m wondering to where will I prevail 
A selfless act from a wealthy man 
is usually a filthy hand 
Should I live or should I die, 
give a small sacrifice, and try 

Forever I dream of heavens door 
And if I should go 
I want no tears to show 
Forever dreaming of your saviors doors

Delusions of Life

My trials, my fate,
Destiny lies at those golden gates,
You think I must sound absurd,
To preach with the talent of my spoken word,
Speak,
Speak,
Speak,
For your voice is tacit,
If you never speak you will never be heard,
Never be able to raise your voice to the sky,
And wonder how,
And wonder why,
You must test yourself to better yourself,
The more lies you spread,
The closer you come to being dead,
Dead inside,
Empty,
Emptiness,
Follows you as you walk,
Watching the prey you often stalk,
Retreat!
Retreat now!
You have yet the courage to test the fate,
The fate that lies inside the gate,
You’ll burn before you come to the conclusion,
That life is just an intimate delusion.

but yet you were affected

they heard a piece
of what you had to say

pieces of the pie
solutions to the never ending story

Im Undone
and it keeps changing
as you talk for me
as you overlook this crime
build me a weapon

define my soul
who are we anyway?
to make love this way

and need
eachother
through such intricate
bodylanguage
of language

slow down here
down and down
slow down
and drown drown drown

Everybodys listening
loivong their
delusional destiny called life
sometime its a price
a piece of the pie
a price of power
and not many think twice
sometimes it s a price
Everybodys living their destiny
sometimes its a price of
power

Knocking At My Door



Why did you come knocking at my
Door,

After the changes, you put me through

Did you think I would repeat the same
Mistakes I so blindly walked in once
Before

And just walk back through that same
Old door..

Why did you come knocking at my door?

Thinking I would rekindle the fire once
Burned,

But I can smile and tell you this much
The flames has flicker and flicker out

Your words are just like the air, I do not
Hear them anymore..

Nor do I care about your words they
Mean nothing at all to me

Congratulations, congratulations you
Gotten wish..

Now you come running back here to
Me..

After you seen things were not as you
Figure..

But now it is to late!

You made your bed so just lay in it
Now you see the grass is not always
Greener on the other side..

But I certainly salute you and gladly
Say fair well.. 

For life is on track now without you
Being an evil demon..

Just Blue


I awaken this morning down and
Blue,
My heart is blue and fragile,
Its killing the very core of my
Soul,
Draining all essence of life
From me...
Picturesque of blue...
My soul illuminated from the
The half moon..
Presenting silhouette of my soul
Optical illusions,
Realization I precede from my
Heart,
I am withering away….
My soul is like a ghost,
Neither here nor there, just 
Faded into darkness that
Hatred brood..
Deception and deeds of
Malice...
I awaken this morning down and
Blue..
Such arrogance smug approach
Shutting me off from the light,
While virtually destroying my
Soul,
My soul crave serenity..…
With love that blooms in time
Of all season...

Caught In the Headlight

So silly of you to think you had me trapped    
into a corner with your endless arguments,   
an innocent fawn caught in the headlight.       

Hey, don’t tell me things that I already know         
for there’s nothing you say that is really new,      
your posturing can’t hide what little you knew.     

      Caught in your own headlight, oh no!    
      caught in the headlight, yes, you are;   
      admitting defeat just ain’t your style         
      though you are grasping at straws.  

Your insecurity astounds me, you wicked man, 
going nuts that I own what you have not got,       
you are primed for the nearest garbage lot.   
     
You stick like a leech when you want something   
then switch gear when you feel you have it going, 
I’m through with your music, fair-weather friend.   

You’re crazy to think I can’t make it without you, 
truth to tell, you need me more than I need you,
you don’t really know me that well, or do you?
 
Get the hell out of my life now, do you hear?        
getting rid of  you now is the least I can do,   
the thought of you makes me boil all over.

My Heart Bleeds

The effort and time
Just to lose my mind
So blind that I cannot see
That all I am is loves’ lost tragedy
Time has not been on my side 
Makes me want to turn, run and hide
From all the tragedy my life has seen 
Makes my heart bleed 
From the hurt that feeds
Lead me to a new direction
Erase the old, make corrections

Living in tragedy 
What has this life made of me? 
Hard and cold, cold as stone 
Here I sit again alone 
Taking the pain and putting it away 
To shout it out some other day 
Love’s lost tragedy 
Made me see 
My heart bleeds 

So good together in each others company 
What led you to cheat on me? 
We were first-rate from the first date 
I thought you were my true mate
Now it’s ended 
My heart needs mended 
Blended, with sorrow and confusing lines 
Oh God show me a way to go, just a sign 

Living in tragedy 
What has this life made of me? 
Hard and cold, cold as stone 
Here I sit again alone 
Taking the pain and putting it away 
To shout it out some other day 
Love lost tragedy 
Made me see 
My heart bleeds 

The hurt might go away 
On my knees all I can do is look up and pray 
And Say, that this won’t happen again today
Scorned, heart too torn, to be reborn 
Love again, not convinced 
I haven’t found love since

Living in tragedy 
What has this life made of me? 
Hard and cold, cold as stone 
Here I sit again alone 
Taking the pain and putting it away 
To shout it out some other day 
Love's lost tragedy 
Made me see 
My heart bleeds

Not About Love

This isn't about love.
Nope, not at all.
This isn't about heart break.
Not at all.

I'm not in love.
Not one bit.
I've never experienced heart break.
Not even a little bit.

Sixteen years and not one person.
Not one man.
Sixteen years and not one kiss.
Not one smooch.

This is not about love.
I've never had it.
This is not about lust.
Never experienced it.

So while you're crying.
While you're heartbroken.
Pardon my ignorance.
Pardon my apathy.

And while you're so happily in love.
While you're swooning.
Pardon my ignorance.
Pardon my cynicism.

Because this isn't about love.
Not one frigging bit.
This isn't about love.
Not even a little bit.

This sucks.
Every last bit.
This sucks.
Down to the littlest bit.

My Notes

Scolded,
For my music,
The music that makes up,
My whole existence,
The music that defines me.
If I never had these notes in my head.
I would never be me.
I might not even exist.
These tunes have gotten me through it,
Through all of it.
How can you tell me not to play these notes?
These notes in my head.
They soothe the pain that exists,
Within my deepest confines.

Love Found

You gave me hope when I was down,
you brought comfort when I was tired;
you never failed to cheer me up
when I was lonely and sad.

You guided me when I was lost,
you made me feel safe and needed;
you did not listen to what they said,
you only listened to me.

And I am very glad to be with you now,
glad to be a permanent part of your life;
you came just when I needed a friend,
you made me smile again.

Through all the uncertain moments,
you were always standing by me;
in all those times of indecision,
you made me firm and strong.

I Dreamt Of A Place

I dreamt of a place much

Like heaven..

Somewhere between a

Dream and a vision..

Colors are deep,

Bursting with life..

I heard the children

Laughter

I heard the angel sing...

I dreamt of a place much

Like heaven,

Somewhere between a 

Dream and a vision

Way beyond the clouds 

And the bluest sky..

The roads are made of gold

The gate is a rainbow made

From the crystal raindrops 

That sparkling of colors that

Shine from the sun

My soul was as a child in

These places of dreams are 

Maybe just a vision,

In my mind, it was heaven

Paradise…

I have earned my wings with

Tips of gold...

I drench my thirst from the

Fountain of love…

I dreamt of a place much like

Heaven…

That sparkles with crystal 

Raindrops…

My spirit, my soul my piece

Of heaven...

I dreamt of this place much 

Like heaven...

Are maybe a vision...

to where I've been
how it was 
what I did

Fly me back 
to hear again
that sound within
within my head

Fly me back 
to feel again
what I had
and don't regret

Fly me back 
to see again
how I cared 
what it meant

Fly me back 
to what I knew
how it was
and with whom

Fly me back 
to remember
how it was
on this day

This is no fantasy....

Colors fill the backdrop
feeling champagne bubbles pop
silken waves that hit the skin
got you in the mood you're in....

This is no fantasy
this is where you wanna be

No more cat and mouse chase
along for the ride as our hearts race
it's you...it's me our tongues taste
you'll see that this is our fate....

This is no fantasy
this is where you wanna be

No more facing closing doors
our open house will show us more
welcome matt stays on the porch
love within our feet will scorch.....

This is no fantasy
this is where you wanna be

Won't take long for you to see
just come on in and stay with me
theres always something we can do
my attention fixed on you....

This is no fantasy
this is where you wanna be
won't take long for you to see
just come on in and stay with me......

The Missing

Time drags on,
another day gone,
another plane crashed,
another dead laugh,
and yet there is more missing,
missing in time,
in life,
in dreams,
It seems like perhaps I am the one who is missing,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my ambition,
my mission to be happy in what I do,
I will live an go another day and miss another note,
and tie another lace,
and ride untill I choke,
I will be missing untill the time calls me back,
to relax,and perhaps reveal that I was kidnapped,
not missing just snatched from the life I wanted,
but untill then I am the missing.

My World

Can't break these walls between us
Separated by so many pieces
Falling, shattered I watch you pass by
Never again am I a part of that world
That world that makes so many people cry

'Cause this is my world 
I stand away from the rest
Black amongst white
Watch me darken your light 
But in my world truth isn't made of lies
'Cause in my world it's just me by my side

Force yourself to look away
My soul is ugly to your faith
Living under your oath while breaking a thousand promises
In this world I'm segregated to the end
So separated, but maybe that's just our trend

But this is my world
Here you don't belong
'Cause in your world
I can never come along
Black amongst white, watch me darken your light
But my truth isn't made of lies
'Cause in my world it's just me by my side

I see you all walking
Walking your paths to nowhere
Don't even know where you're going
But it's at me that you stare
So tear your dirty eyes away from me
You've got nothing to look at here
Keep walking your paths to nowhere
Keep going, even when they've stripped you bare

And this is my world
Where one stands away from the rest
'Cause in my world
There's no such thing as the best
It's just me and myself
Looking in while you look out
Breaking hearts while it's our own we try to mend
But in both our worlds
The suffering never ends.

Broken Spirit

                                          Your  soul aching from despair
                                        
                                          Led to believe people around 

                                          you no longer care.


                                         Many in the world have become

                                         too self-absorbed,
                           
                                         To those who are in distress
                                      
                                         they are seemingly invisible to them.


                                         I am saddened  in heart to witness the blatant
                    
                                         mistreatment of others we soon forget,

                                         The ones we ignore out there are our Sisters

                                         and Brothers.
