The Swan

The Swan 

Near feathers in the wind.
I stare as she slowly drifts into the shadows of yesterday. 
She is not me
She is not you!

A theme, like morning upon a crystal view.
She is of the wind
She is of the sun
She is the moon
She is the magic in your eyes.

Tonight she sits on the calm waters of your reflection.
Tonight she makes love to you.
Tonight she listens and counts the rhythm in your heartbeat.
She is a thief and steals every single breath from your body and soul...
And Still -
She is the night air 
She is the tranquil sound
She is perfect
She is mighty in your eyes.

You are the oceans
In you, she swims with trust.
You hold on to the tides, 
You keep her feathers dry and warm.
You stray her away from the sadness in a lost dance.
The aches under her wings belong to the shade in your heart.
That is why-
She is the grace
She is the smile
She is the fire
She is everything in your eyes.

Graceful feathers in the wind.
The dream of dreams
She might be me!
She might be you!
"Till Death Do We Part."

“The Swan”
-the symbol of everlasting love-

A Housewife Unmasked

By day she goes about
the weary business of her dreary life:
a housekeeper, bookkeeper, shopper, chef,
   chauffer for two active teens, and 
hostess of her husband’s dinner parties
                                is she.

In the middle of her day    
        she naps,         
for in the night. . . 

when her work-obsessed spouse
              soundly slumbers
and the kids at last     are fast asleep,
she goes into the darkness
                                     of the woods              
behind her house.

The mask of this woman
falls without a sound 
                     to the leaf strewn ground.
She raises her face to the moon.
               In its light, the stripes
                         of a tigress are revealed!
Her legs feel strong and limber.
That ferocious appetite 
                 for something that she stifles
                                                       flees away
as 
                    she
                                       runs.

Among the pines and midst the sounds
       of the woodland’s crepuscular creatures
she runs           and runs           and runs.
She is running after something 
                she cannot put a name to.

She’s a good woman.
She would never use a bar or night club
                                                             as her jungle.

Now -  with her tigress face -
    swift, stealthy, and strong -
            but above all,
                  not beholden to any  body
she is simply       free            to be.

After an hour of running, 
           the mask of the  housewife
is restored.
Then she collapses, exhausted on her  bed,
           where she dreams refreshing dreams -
which are necessary - 
                              for tomorrow
she begins again
                   the weary business
                                               of her dreary life.

Inspired by Debs’ Contest and the artwork of Susan Seddon Boules
(I thought I saw a picture of a tiger woman among the artwork, but 
when I go back to the images, I cannot find it. Maybe it was a leopard 
woman that I saw instead. In any case, it inspired this poem).

Banter in the bedroom

The cares of the world waft away like
the vague images of a forgotten dream  
when he climbs into bed beside me.  

And my comfort is found in the warmth 
of a slight up-curved smile relaxing across 
an unshaven face tickling me with a
hundred kisses as I squeal to his delight.  

A calloused hand urges the small of
my back gently forward as I fuss in 
mock protest of his boyish game.  

His eyes gleam indulgently making my 
heart swell with such regard I 
choke back joyful tears and throw 
my arms possessively around him.  

With a knowing sigh he draws me in, 
cradling me in his capable arms 
sworn to provide and protect.    

Then he buries his face in my copper-red 
hair breathing its henna scent, and 
holding me tight, he whispers my name,
swearing love that will never relent.

Forgiveness

Forgive me my love for the hurtful words
I hurled from my mouth time and time again
Forgive me for letting you down
for in your time of need I was never around
Forgive me for the long nights 
for all the constant fights
Forgive me for the innoncence I took away
for all the help I kept at bay
And lastly forgive me for being anything other than
a loving and caring husband

You're my lady, made for me

You're my lady, made for me!

-----------------------

I swear to you there could never ever be!

In this whole world, as far as I could see!

Someone else who could be my soul-mate!

Except you, most precious gift of my fate!

Before we even met, I had known you forever!

Since times began, we had been apart never!

From nothing, you changed me to everything!

My queen of hearts, just with you I am a king!

You are my world, you're the love of my life!

You are my sweetheart, O my prettiest wife!

Let me yet once more get down on my knee!

To say you are my lady, who is made for me!

Why You

I choose you,because of all the love you give me. 
You are my sun when i'm cold. 
You are my air when I can't breathe. 
You are the one I share my dreams with. 
You are the one I can always count on. 
Through good times and bad times. 
You're the one and only thing that makes me happy when i'm sad. 
Hold me tight,like you do your pillow at night. 
Why did you take so long to come into my life. 
I always hoped and prayed that there would come a day. 
When I would find that special love,then you came my way. 
To be held by your loving enbrace,that's all i'll ever need. 
I do not hunger,I do not fear when you are near. 
From that day to now,I finally realized how good life can be. 
Because you care,but most of all because you love me. 
I pray you understand and know these words I have said to you are true. 
Because you are my life and one day i'll make you my wife. 
That's why I choose you,To be the one I love,respect and honor.

Elephant Leg

There’s a part of you 
I cannot see or touch.  

In the dark, alone, I know 
every curve of your body.  
I could sculpt you from memory.  
Each detail vivid in 
my mind’s eye.  

The baby nail on your baby toe.  
This neck that takes to kissing.  
I know the moment when your 
hip becomes belly.  
Just there.  

But there’s a part of you I 
cannot see or touch.  Hidden, I want to 
know it all the more.  
Behind your eyes, inside 
your heart, that essential 
you, separate from this 
fragile tissue hanging, draped, over bone.  

I watch you move when 
you’re not looking.  
Standing, your toes curling.  
Twisting the end of your hair while thinking.  
Asleep, I know your breathing.  
You hold the morning cup like a chalice.  
Little lines around your eyes deepen sometimes.  

These things are pieces of a whole I ache to know.
This elephant leg obscured by sightless eyes can 
be anything.  Groping blindly toward
the totality of you, revealed in fits and starts.

This life of mine no longer turned inward.
Every day I have new discoveries to make.

Maybe The Last Letter

This may be the last letter I write to you; I am so very tired inside, exhausted...as I lay in bed I’m pondering things. When you feel like you are at death’s door, it’s not the things you done well that matters, it’s the mistakes in life you ponder. To be honest though, if there was only one thing I did right, it was the day I met you. When love finds you, you want to keep it close forever and ever and ever and never let it go. I’m afraid to go to sleep because of the uncertainty of tomorrow, but I need to set my fears aside…so I am writing. I should not be afraid because you are already there, where ever there is, but I do remember trembling at your touch and the sound of your voice; I am still in love with you and I miss you so very much. My prayer is before I close my eyes that I did not forget something—I know that is silly. I did make the house payment, the dishes are washed, the laundry is done, and yes I took out the trash. I let the girls out to go potty, and made sure they will be taken care of if I don't wake up.  They're sleeping on the floor by my side, they have been staying close to me tonight. So I guess I’ll put down my pen and take my chance at sleep, but if I could have just one wish, I wish I could see your face once again with those beautiful deep blue eyes I used to get lost in. Goodnight my love, maybe we can meet some where tonight, I love you.

Tearfully written for “Maybe the last letter - Poetry Contest”

Seraphim

little girl who rose up
above poverty
above ignorance
above circumstance
above forced marriage...

little girl who rose up
above her poverty
above her circumstance
their forced marriage
their ignorance...

little girl who grew up
little girl who had to grow up
too fast, far too fast...
who learned the ropes too fast
who learned rough, tough, gentle

who became a woman
who became a seraphim...

a seraphim who looked down
a seraphim who descended
descended from the heavens
far beyond the speed of light
just in time...

just in time to save an old fool
just in time to marry me...


*Happy Birthday Vicki! Miss you...

Since First I Saw You

Since first I saw you, it was your eyes,
mesmerizing, your gaze transporting
me to a realm, not of fantasy, real,
where young men go when cupid’s
arrow takes root.

Since first I saw you, it was your lips,
captivating, holding me frozen 
in anticipation of our lips brushing
for the first time.

Since first I saw you, it was your voice,
a crescendo, light, invigorating, 
each word you speak intensifies 
my hearing, enveloping each
note, time ceases as I hang motionless
savoring, memorizing.

Since first I saw you, it was your hair,
long, flowing, gently rising above
your shoulders as a slight breeze
passes through sending waves
of your essence my way. 
The sun magnifying each strand, 
highlighting the minute
variances of invigorating color, 
creating a halo effect, a portrait of
your beauty forever imprinted.

Since first I saw you, It was you,
my love forever more for you,
only you.

A homeless bride-w

I shall daily visit the beauty parlor
And make myself beautiful for you.
I shall never clean the house
So that my skin is not tarred.
I shall ever watch my figure,
Eating calorie less foods and drinks.

I shall stay home all day
And will never be stay at home mom
But will go for Disco at night.
I shall not take drugs
But a drink or two in limits.
I shall awake late in the morning
So that you are not disturbed.

I shall adorn the house to earn
Adjectives from the neighbours.
I shall buy the furniture to invent
Nouns to be told to the visitors.
Our house will be all pronouns
But will never admit verbs as
They shake the very foundation.

*** I wrote this poem much earlier noticing a young married woman of a modest family adopting the modern living going astray from the household chores *** Based on a real
person.

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

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

Euphoric Kiss

Yore of moments pass
From within the eve 
Of mazarine 
Heavens celestial body

Pulse of heatwave passions
As spell are cast
Of star gaze
She, upon the auspicious me

Sultry eyes, twinkle yet
Flicker, dance ablaze
Thus, traverse I must, to kismet
Walk the red fiery molten flames 

Searing coals forthwith transfix
Become sweet rose nectar lips
"The possession" her magical ruby charms
Burning deeper, is the intoxicating sip

Crafting to rise, crashes walls, hearts aflood
Waters washing ocean's staves
All that is runneth over
Burgundy bloods liquid glaze

Monsoons from out of lives
Two souls set love drenching free
Quicker to intertwine
Endowing testaments, hence to be

Thus, through fibers core wildfires reign
Eruptions into ritual
What ancient fates once withheld
As such escapes pheonix touch, euphoric kiss

My Person

Ever since I can remember
I have wanted my own person
That special person that would be mine
Who would want me to be their person
We would not want to be anyone else's person

I thought I had found my person
Yet that was not to be
I was left to wonder why
What went wrong
What was missing
Was there something wrong with me
I needed to look inside to see
Continuing a journey
Becoming myself

Before I could find my special person
I had to become
Explore
Understand
Be
My own person
How else could I recognize
When my person appeared to me

Then that special day
Like a vision she appeared
My person
My endless love
She is my hand
I am her glove
My everything she's more than enough
She accepts me as I am with all my stuff
She is gentle when life is tough

Created just for me
The breath and air I breathe
The one I patiently waited to receive
My person, friend and lover who will not leave
The completion of me
She makes me truly believe
That I am worthy to be
Her person
Her dream

She is my person
She is also her own
She knows herself
She is never alone
For part of me is part of her
Together we are more than what we were
Yet the lines of self they do not blur
They are amplified
Redefined by the beauty
Of finding
Of being with
My special 
Amazing
Loving
Spectacular
Person

My Heart


My heart is wound around your heart.
Mine is sustained by the beat of yours every day.
My dreams are wrapped around your dreams,
As I find peace in your arms and ways.

My vision is colored in life’s beauty
And you were the one to show it to me.
My happiness grew out of the knowledge
Of the life you built with me.

You taught me how to love this world 
Amid all the tragedies that befall a life.
And you taught me to find God’s way
When he brought you, my soul mate, into my life.

Nightmare

Rest is a requirement,
for all,
in order to have this,
sleep is a must,
after a day’s of hard work,
wherein sleep is a must,
for all,
to freshen up the next day,
though the mind goes to sleep,
and the body follows suit,
the subconscious mind awakens,
and in lie,
a number of dreams,
awaiting you,
the dream,
that always reigns in my mind,
is the death of my wife, 
not once,
but more than a couple of times,
why does this dream,
often arise in my mind,
is the answer I seek,
is it because of the love we have towards one another,
or is it the compassion for each other,
or is it in relation of serving one another, 
or is it a kind of warning,
a warning to take care in the future, 
some people may call this as the sixth sense,
while I call this a nightmare,
as nightmares are really scary,
yes, nightmares are quite scary indeed, 
if you do agree with me or not!!

Paradise In A Dream

Paradise In A Dream

There is so much weighing me down
The daily toils of doing what others want
Screaming kids fighting all day long
Another four hours of Dora The Explorer
Trying to cook dinner with nothing in the cupboards
Every member of the family wanting something different
Hot dogs for the youngest
Mac and cheese for the little girl who won’t eat anything
Cheese steak sandwiches for the adults
There is a fashion show on the TV for my wife
The basketball playoffs can wait for another day
I haven’t seen a Celtics game in more than ten years
A fuse blows in the middle on the evening
Those basement stairs were not meant for a man my size
Finally the time has come for a peaceful sleep
Until my daughter finds a monster under her bad
Screaming and crying while I scare the monster away
I close my eyes as the moon rises
The witching hour when the dead rises
My dreams take me away to a paradise
The tropical sun tans my half naked body
Naked women chase each other on empty beaches
No kids, no wife and no fashion shows
Too bad morning and another day has to come
Too bad that I love my wife and kids
Otherwise I just might stay asleep

I promised you this

I love the way her quiet hands always seem

to rouse a feeling of intensity deep inside.

How strong the sensation can be when against my body.

I love the how heartening they are

when I feel so misplaced.

And how infantile they feel even though calloused

Greatly through her trying life.

I love the way her eyes gaze at me.

The way they bypass sheepish smiles and timid looks

And see what I really wish for her to see.

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

my soul and melts away the layers

like chocolate in the sun.

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

The way they coil in to this ideal smile

that always seems to cause the same outcome in me.

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

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

I admire how they can say so much with out moving

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

I love it when I hear thump-thump

and how it propels her passion for this existence. 

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

and how it always makes every day unique.

I can even love the childish way it makes her mature

which always appears to make her cry.

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

but she always tells me Im perfect.

I love how she makes me cry cause it never bittersweet

and always ends in a smile.

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

in a joke that we both laugh at later.

In the end I promised you this.

Its not done its not perfect but its for you.

Its my heart. Its everything I love about you,

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

And love you always.

My Children are Mexicans

out in the county and up the highway
anger hangs like lost voodoo over Miami
dances on bumperstickers
floats on airwaves
scars faces with perpetual glares
colors perceptions darkly
alters moods and
drives young men to football coaches
then army recruiters

anger that beats stepchildren
hunts coyotes for pleasure
and hangs corpses on barbed-wire fences
anger that asks
have you seen many Mexicans today?

just my wife and kids so far but it's still early
i hope to see more
he calls me a race traitor
he's to old to hit and i'm to old to hit him
so i suffer a fool
he tells his old wife only a homo would marry a Mexican

middle-aged men in Ford 350's
scatter brown children at bus stops and crosswalks
then pull guns to protect themselves 
from the older brothers of the children they harass
and... hey why did you do that to my little sister?
can get you shot in "self defense"

it gets to me too as anger leads to fear
fear for my Mexican son and daughter
who have records but have committed no crime
but out in the county and up the highway
the police put up roadblocks
issue tickets without cause
and brag, every Mexican in town will have a record

they told my son "what's the big deal everybody gets pulled over
everyone has to pay their share"
even if they
come to a complete stop
obey speed limits
use their blinker
don't tailgate

tell it to the judge, my son and my daughter
the judge who gives out four month sentences
for a third non-offence
or you can pay the
take it off your record fee
we lost your paperwork fee
you live in the wrong neighborhood fee
you drive an old car fee
we don't care if you did it or not fee

then after you pay and pay
re-arrests because the clerk didn't enter the payment
leads to
lost jobs
missed classes
and retracted scholarships
my children are Mexicans

Elevators: 5 Horsemen

Part 1

Onion

the delicacy of friendship

I found you in the flowers
Standing tall we become one
Looking down from gangly towers
Squash, you burn, you pillage, son.

Follow me you say in tongues
Thy shallow mind reveal me tell
Whisper lies clean load the guns
I feel the burn I rot in hell

Friend folly menacing the liar
I loathe this coffin how it leaks
Dear foe you raped me set on fire
The onion peal itself and weeps

Part 2

Traitor

dear monkey boy

Older eyes eat themselves,
glance and kill the other
Unified in the dance,
they steer the musty rudder.

Pained and sweeter deeper wells,
poised buckets drunk with water.
Singled out the one that dried,
handed weights to pull him under.

Wiser times capture the mind,
death justifies dishonor.
Knife slice neat through the devil's back,
who stares blank and milks the udder.

Part 3

Tempest

patron saint

Inside this box
Goodbye tempestuous fall
My puppet of steel coiled thread
Smashed buttons and twisted dread,
Alarm these doors, and
Escape this delusive bunker bed

Stamp the spiders
Thief, vulture of the deflection
The mocking patron of the sinners
Erase this affliction
Relating inward at the reflection

Rise you fool

Part 4

Phoenix

i love you

close the grip
cinched hematic grip
drenched, clawing
seeking the sheave
becoming the counterweight

i absorb, now
extracting the heat
rise like a phoenix
away to be gone to be free
fix me! i have fixed me

i am alive and i love you

Part 5

Aye, Damager

Abolish her state of disrepair
Scattered, spattered drippy thoughts
All around this box of soused leaves
Soak, ferment in the faith of our love

I can't fix this, you know
I loathe this misunderstanding
Of what I am speaking, projecting
To me, Aye Damager, to you

This devil in me
turned and twisted
A wrecked elevator in rejection
Years locked painfully aware

...

-Bittersweet-

I was naive to believe you'd always love me
Living in my dreams until you stabbed me with reality
Your dagger's still lodged in my heart
Every now and again, for your amusement
your words twist it ever so slowly
Tear's of blood trickle down my breast
Pain is unbearable, leaving me immobile and screwed
Turning my mind bitter and mean
You were nothing but a dream
A fantasy that I thought I could hold onto
For a split second, I let emotions take over
Spinning me in every direction
Should of awoken before my life had no meaning
With no one to love me, and no one that cared
We both know now I'll never be what you need.

I Knew

There was a moment when
I knew.  
I knew when you played me 
The Proclaimers.
When you woke in terror, 
pacing and pale,
I knew.
When I fell asleep, and felt 
your hand on mine, 
I knew.
It was when I saw your pain, and
saw your heart begin to heal.
I knew when you sent me an email saying,
“I missed  you at the party.”
I knew when you spoke softly,
revealing regrets, doubts, and
hopes. 
When I saw the look of shock on your face
as the kite string slipped from your fingers,
I knew.
When you smiled at your daughter,
I knew.
You shared a poem with me,
and I knew. 
From the first moment I saw you,
I knew. 
I knew that I loved you in all your aspects,
and knew that I’d cherish every moment
we share together. 
I knew that my love for you 
would be renewed in each moment,
and that I’d discover the depth and breadth of you
every day, anew.  
I knew.

Losing You

Liquid tears
fallen rain
down my face
emotional droplets
caressing skin
bittersweet hearts
cracked in half
drowning passions
in a sea of blue
floating away
stranded feelings
oceans streaming
soaking sand
dissolving dreams
crushing hope
into pieces
of losing you.

My Bride of the Black Dress

My bride of the black dress,
Come to me my dear,
Take my hand and kiss me,
My beloved bride,
Soon the wedding will start,
And we shall be wed,
Now wait for me,
Wait for me,
My love is never ending,
Your deathly white skin,
And boney arms are beautiful to me,
So wait for me my bride,
I shall join you soon enough,
But first let me remove this dagger from your heart,
My beautiful bride of the black dress,
Our heaven awaits.

If You Don't Know, Now You Know

If you search and try to find a love like mines but you dont
You'll be missing my love. 
When you call and I don't answer the phone like I used to 
don't worry about it.
When I walk off this time and you feel as if you were about to lose me 
well its true; 
If you don't know, now you know.
No more worries, if you think I'm going to be sitting around stressing because
of what you do. No I'm not worried about a thing.
If I don't do the things I used to do and you lose sleep because of it don't worry, 
now you see how I used to feel.
If you don't know, now you know.
While you tried and sit around and play me ,
If you knew where home was instead of leaving me alone ,
I would've still been right here taking care of you, loving you, but your lost out
If you dont know, now you know.
My mind is clearer now this vaulable heart was yours to keep 
Since you was out messing around with these no good heffas
you no longer have it. 
I dont have time to watch you sit around playing with my love
so go walk your path and I will walk mines.
If you don't know, now you know
Now you think I'm messed up about your other chick
No, I'm not but I questioned myself 
Why didn't I handle you
Well, because now that you're gone I would rather be alone
As long as my mind is right, my mind is made up, and my heart is in the right 
place, I would be glad to never see your face again
Ladies, you all know they going to miss us
because they realize that she wasn't worth it over you.
You know there isn't no erasing or replacing me.
So that's why Im not worried.
So, if  you don't know, now you know.

Lolly

Obviously, I am kissed 
Once more by destiny 
When clock touching
The summer moonlight night
Without pain
And, flatten the thought 
By the buzzing bug
With a fiery lips, awaking 
My lonesome blood 
Into whacking as I fell 
Into her breath
With its natural scent 
Like Venus, the god
Wrapped my lonely body 
By sweet loving hand 
That I felt like 
Lolly candy
Wanting… 
To be licked 
By you, again and again

I Love You Forever

As my heart beats, it beats for you.
As I breathe, I breathe for you.
As I think, I think only of you.

You are my source of light,
My source of hope,
You are my source of being.

You are my strength, when I am weak.
You are my guide when I am lost.
You are my reason,

I love you forever.

Essence Of Her Human Spirit.

Her song carried out in sweetest rapture notes so pellucid
Breathe of them in listened serenity…

Her eyes show the portrait of what truly exists within
A subject of assiduous study…

Bearing witness her ears chronicle every touch of moment
Append her the whisper of ardor…

Those thoughts build stairs to the threshold of her mind
Scale its heights with pure intent…

One unsullied heart in pash heated spirit given to me freely
Held amorously it becomes my own…

I enter her arms into the gateway of tender adoration
Where I sleep safely in serenities peace…

Love, I Hate You

Love, I hate you, 
Not ‘cos you’re ugly.

Love, I hate you, 
Not ‘cos you don’t love me.

Love, I hate you,
‘Cos of your great love to me.

Love, I hate you, ‘cos of it; 
A listener, you don’t want to be.
.
You heeded not what I said, 
Even thou, I beg you, to “back off!”

“Now, Look!
You see… what we’ve done!?”

A soul is in grieve, 
‘Cos of us.

With your love, 
My soul cries, too.

Love, I hate you, 
For intoxicating me, with your potion.

Thou, you know…
I am a married man.

Mermaids Heart

Mermaid Heart 

Mermaid on the moon: 
come see me soon. 
I am fading in the night, 
losing my light, 
I am torn in two pieces; 
one of them is ewe. 
Heart,a mermaids heart, 
is the only 
word---that i have been 
able, 
softly spoken, 
to find---to utilize, 
in the water, 
where my mermaid swims. 
Which one word (heart) 
my heart 
spoken in love 
comes even close 
close to the love 
written in the 
Heart of ewe, 
Woman in the foamy waves 
swimming near to me, 
my love it comes. 
It is a heart, 
a mermaids heart.

For Me

She whispers to me, 
Says things this man never
Heard ever before.
She tells me and shows me
The contents of her heart.

She smiles, 
Just to think of me.
She truly is,
But treats me
Like, beautiful art.

She sings songs to me
About love and life 
And of wonderful dreams.

She is a gift,
Truly due to innate beauty
Which flows like 
The most beautiful of streams.

She shares with me,
All that she wishes
Me to see,
But she cannot hide
The real person, inside.

In effect,
She shares completely
And feels, with me,
There’s no reason to hide.

'and the walls came crashing down..........'

A knock at the door, who can it be? 
Probably Sarah coming for tea. 
She usually calls on her way 
back from work to share some time with me. 
  
A look in the mirror, 
I 'tut' at my face: 
Why do people always call 
when there's junk around the place? 

I open the door - a man is standing there. 
I wish I'd worn some make up 
I wish I'd done my hair. 
It's then I spot the uniform: 

the buttons made of brass; 
the stripes that grace the khaki sleeves; 
the boots that crunch amongst the leaves. 
I question with my eyes? 

It comes as no surprise to hear him ask 
can he come in, and would I like to sit?' 
He has some rather grievous news - 
- I dread to hear it. 

I know what he is going to say. 
It's all a dream. Please go away. 
I'm not in to truth today 
I scream inside my head...... 

I know what he just said to me, 
but I didn't hear a word. 
His lips spoke out in silence, and me, 
I never heard. 

He's 'so sorry'. He gets up to go 
and heads towards the door. 
I try to rise to follow him 
but my legs will move no more; 

for they have turned to jelly and 
my head is going to burst. 
It's funny, when you're a soldier's wife, 
you always fear the worst, 

But it's only when you hear the knock, 
the knock upon the door, 
and see the face you've never seen: 
the shining boots, the uniform; 

the mouth that speaks the silent words 
the apologies and platitudes; 
'killed in action in the war" 
The widow thoughts ring clear.

The Loss of a Farmer of Man

The rivers of life are most dear to those with young.
These rivers supply life, ensuring the survival of what is most precious.
It is when the river runs dry; the last drops of liquid are tears...
Tears of all that is lost.

The fertile soil soon dries and becomes barren.
The efforts of man are unable to save the farm.
This farmer... a farmer for man... lost what is most dear.
His vision for the future has died.

The farm itself screams in pain as the river flows away.
Her life is leaving and she is unable to save what grows beneath.
What is most dear to the farm is dying.
Her life, everything she wanted... now stripped from her.

Such farms all have a gate that closes them to the rest of the world.
As the farmer stands staring at the sign above the farm... remembering that night.
He came from no where with no reason... stabbing his wife in her stomach and 
heart.
His memory, while staring at the sign..."Here lies both a loving wife and future 
mother."

                                   Oh my darling Valentine,
                                how you make my days o shine.
                                    It must have been faith,
                                   that led me to your gate.
                                All things we achived together,
                    makes me not to leave because of stormy weather.
                                  In the name of love I pray,            
                                     for both of us to stay.
                                Together we are standing tall,
                              and never for us to feeling small.
                                 You do never have to fear, 
                                   I always will be you near!

Whispers upon a morning breeze

Whispers upon a morning breeze
gently caresses the awakening flowers
and leaves on the flourishing trees
just like a lovers warm soft tender touch
after a night of passion
and making love
now just smouldering embers
between two kindred hearts
who discovered the true meaning
of giving sharing and caring
and beauty
in the sanctity 
of sacred eternal love.

Epitaph

“you’re killing me….”
words that I hung in the air,
a prophecy that resonates through sleepless nights
my heart said goodbye to itself
that chilling evening in early August
how sacred the hidden treasure of a wife and mother
how broken the memories 
how haunting the path not taken

The rain which brought me back to my childhood

The rain which brought me back
To my childhood


It is heavily raining, while I am writing these lines.


Opposite my house it was raining all around,
I could see only rains and the showering clouds every where
Loaded with the rain drops and water to engulf everything.
A Street female dog with its two puppies
Was lying on a small gravel heap to protect her puppies,
The more she tried to take them under her small belly
More the rain started flooding the roads and even the footpath.
 My wife was asking me to do something to protect,
The female dog and her two small puppies or else they die.

Taking small umbrella of my wife on my head, 
I took a thick polythene big bag and cut it to
Cover a bigger area to protect the road female dog and the puppies and
Came out of my house gate in bathroom slippers only,
To feel and touch the beauty of rainwater,
Once again after many- many years.

After crossing the road I reached near the dog
When I look into her eyes, the female dog was telling a different story,
The language of silent thanks I could read in her eyes,
As she was helplessly trying to protect the puppies
Without anything to support her thoughts.


After stretching the polythene on them 
And putting two three small bricks on both ends
I felt a sigh of relief from the coverage of the dogs.

My wife became really happy, when she saw, 
The puppies and the female dog under a sheet of protection,
The joy and satisfaction in her eyes was bigger than that of me,
Because, animals and birds are always,
Her greatest weakness and strengths too.

While crossing the road to reach my house back
I touched and faced the waves of rain water 
Touching my foots and my legs too and they were
Forcing me to remain there, to experience water streams,
Running on the roads, when it rains so heavily.

In those memorable moments,
I really wanted to take a paper boat like a child
And to throw them on the water running all around me 
For a moment I was in my real childhood days.

O thank you God and thank you O Nature and your lovely rains
For giving me an opportunity to once again
Be in my childhood days.

ART to be TREASURED

                             One never imagined ART portrayed as a woman
                                                     such as she.
                                                        She's of
                                                        painting,
                                                          film,
                                                     photography,
                                                       sculpture,
                                                 and visual media.
                                 Her image tells stories and expresses an
                                         aesthetic truth and feeling.
                                                She is ART alone.
                                          Priceless ART that no man,
                                    Not even myself is worthy to possess.
                                    Yet, if any man finds her, so Shall he
                                                       Keep her,
                                                       Love her,
                                                  and Cherish her
                                                     to the end.
                                For ART such as she; created without form
                                                is truly hard to find.

Your love is
quite sensational –

Your laughter tastes
    like spring-time rain

Your tears smell
    like sweet lemon flower petals

Your voice looks
    so 
    deeply 
    majestic

Your heart sounds
    like exquisite violin and harp concertos

And your eyes!

Your eyes feel
    like early autumn sunset’s amber-gold lengthening glow

Oh, my love, your love
is entirely, completely,
embracingly

Sen-sational!

Love Poem Number 2

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

Well, Father, he is a bit like ; Like Thomas, Yet he’s not even sure of his Doubt
For more than once, he’s called us out, but in his rage, the benefit of his Doubt
His Heart longs to know, how long SHE will Glow, if he must walk the road “Below”
To his Eternal World of Pain, hate, Sorrow, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow; he will go
His Heart is here, with US, his LOVE is True and Just , the doubt in his Heart, shall Die
His LOVE is real, for still he calls to YOU , Through ME His LOVE Eternal his Wife LENORE

It may come as quite a shock
but Queen Victoria
Loved a curry on a Friday night
liked plenty of sex
and smoked pot.

CHOICE OF LIFE

written 29th June 2013



Recalling that day at school, the teacher set that task..
 what do you want to be? she asked the class..

My answer was simple, so I had thought...
 to be a mum, I'd have six kids and live on a farm

If you would believe, that's exactly what I received
 but it was not made to come with ease

For the fathers I had sadly chose, became prideful and greedy!
 never til now did it cross my mind, my babies would someday not need me 

Leaving me again to think, what do I really want to be
 as faith would have it, as it had been planned so I'd see

For the FIRST! time, direction would finally enter into my life
 poetry writer; was soon to amount of me, after I'd become a wife

Now poems are continuously raging within my head, all wanting to be read
 as I failed English on an epic scale, to believe this dream inside of my head

At 38 years old, I see my life heading back to school
 maybe this time round, I won't play the class fool!

Love Needs No Words

You've been my caregiver so many times.
Surgery after surgery you were there. 
Never a complaint came from your lips-
Bathed me, fed me with loving care. 
All of this was behind us, we thought,
Until this year-

Oh, love, friend, soulmate of mine,
This year another surgery I fear.
A caregiver I'll need once again my love.
You laid your hand upon my shoulder,
As our heads touch, my tears did flow.
Two hearts became one, a sad note it did beat.
Love needs no words.

"This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called woman because she
was taken out of man." 
"Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother and shall cleave onto his wife and
they shall be one flesh." 
(genesis chapter 2 verses 23 & 24)


One flesh, one bone, all one body and soul,
onto our lives it is now just you and I, my wife.

All my pride comes from you,  boo.
You complete me!!

Baby, we are meant to reach the heavens together.
Meant to hold our vows well onto our spiritual journey.

Spread your canvas let me paint our love, 
open your mind, what I know is not enough.

Everlasting devotion, is the meat of my vow.
I'm am yours for eternity, if you'll allow

Long walks on the beach, our picnic under the willow tree.
You're the inspiration behind so much of my poetry.

" And Adam called his wife Eve because she was the mother of all the living."

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.

This Thing Called Love

Twas just the greatest treasure,

that Mankind has ever found. 

Yet its bounty is not hidden inside a chest, 

nor buried underground, 

It won,t be all piled up and shining in a mound, 

You won,t need a key to unlock it, 

in fact it,s not even bound, 

Yet it can be found, 

by just about anyone, 

from a panda to a hound, 

You do not need x-ray eyesight, 

nor ears that hear the slightest sound, 

No, this thing-a-ling almost anyone can bring, 

In fact its all around. 

It comes from deep, deep, deep inside, 

with blessings from the Man above, 

It comes sometimes in an instant, 

sometimes it nestles in like a glove, 

What is this one thing, 

that makes you want to sing, 

and live peacefully like the dove, 

It introduces all Queens to her King, 

Why of course, 

this thing is Love.

Distant Love

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

love grows up

Resentment slumbered deep inside of his soul
	Christ echo’s the words to love and forgive 
Anger is deadly one day taking its toll

A child hurt and always betrayed
By those who should protect, nurture, and groom
  He’s grown up angry, and somewhat frayed

Relationships so delicate, precious and fragile
	A young boy inside, he ran to hearts
He leaped and bound through each so agile 

Four walls erected to keep out the hurt. 
	No woman could reach him, and many had tried
His words as sharp as obsidian and curt

He wanted to love but never knew how
	Then came a friend and demanded some time
He opened a book ‘the time has come; the moment is now’
 
The story of Jesus would change his whole life
	Forgiveness was given by the blood of Christ
To learn of forgiveness and faith without strife

Today I am open to help and to love
	God showed me mercy, forgiveness and grace
My wife is an angel sent from above

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

The Twenty-Mile Block Walk

I remember
It was the longest walk of my life
I was tired of running
Nothing really mattered anymore anyway
So I had a friend drive me down to Los Angeles 
So I could turn myself in at the Prison Gate
He dropped me off about a block away
I had stashed some things up inside of me
So I could come up once I hit the yard
So every step carried with it
A certain amount of physical pain
But nothing compared to the pain inside
As I walked I was thinking about my wife and kids
At least I was sparing them the sight
Of watching me get carried away in handcuffs
AGAIN
I was so tired
I hadn’t slept in days
And from Northern California where I lived
To the prison in Moreno Valley
Was about a 14 hr drive
But Harry and I were so spun out it took us a couple of days
Anyhow
I was walking along 
Empty as a grave waiting on a casket
Hollow as a tree full of termites
So sick of it all that I couldn’t wait to get into my cell
And I started thinking:

With each step along the way
Each has its own price to pay
All the things that I now feel
They have broke down my will
Turn myself in and get it done
These guards will know I’m spun
Is this how far my life has fell
Leave my family to go to hell
I really just wanted it all to end
Get out sooner if I turn myself in
Legs felt like million lbs. weights
20-mile block to reach that gate
With each step desperation grew
Because my very soul was torn into
Just keep on walking and get it done
Jesus Christ fool turn around and run
I knew the guards, which was no surprise
Hell we’d spent years telling each other lies 
Final thought of my walk that day
Last time I’m going out this way
Funny, the end of one walk is where another begins
Thats why as I stepped through the gate I had to grin

Written for Constance's contest. This walk
from my friends truck to the Prison gate
was about half a block but seemed like an
eternity. My wife and Parole Officer together
talked me into turning myself in. In short, that
walked sucked really bad, never again! God Bless

I lay my tender heart

I lay my tender heart at your feet
and my soul and very being I surrender
My desire and quest
to fill your heart with joy
and summer
by the sweetest of emotion and affection.

To stand by you
to provide and protect you
a bond so strong nothing can tare it apart
until death do us part
and later
we meet once more
in a much better place
once again
reunited.

Redintegrated INK Love

Over a course of past yester-years, prayed the prayer to live forever single; forever with Him- worshiping, praising while tracing the inner counsels of Him. Laboring after laboring to prescind from woman's private-teers- Though much like man, fell victim...sin after sin; red lips after red lips again and again. Oscillating between the Flesh and the Spirit that seldom end- Seems life in the midst of life isn't life without sin. Knew not how to deviate from that prescribed heading, until an hour your heart bored its marks upon mine. Yes...your fathomless and saccharine love cultivated mine. And in turn, life's atmosphere had altered a new setting. And the testament of that garnished love carved out is now the center of all this Worlds' blessing. Prayed the prayer this past yester-day, you of that impeccable and peerless heart proceed to stay- that we both worship and praise Him in every way, while tracing the inner counsels of Him everyday... Until Heavens' Gates, Forever living- one Spirit, Husband and Wife

I have to say Good-bye - Part 3

My Imagination Wanders  : To Be beside “YOU my Dearest Most Only Beloved Lenore”
Yet: I crawl through the crevices of the Graves, to Deep Craters, of my Living Hell
My Dearest “Nubbies“  , I was the Cribbage Champion ,the Day YOU Entered Glory
It’s so Black now, I can see the Scarlet Embers Leading  me to the Lake of Flaming
                                     Blood Red Tears

All my Dreams of Heaven’s Glory, of Our "Eons FOREVER"; Will never touch my Eyes :
I’ve  come, to an eerie meadow , where Black Flowers Bloom Shadows of FORGETTING
My Dearest Most Only Beloved Lenore, Your Scent in my nostrils; Voice  in my Ears:
You keep me Warm, in the freezing, Flames of Hell; Your soft, Auburn hair in my hands

                                                           To be Cont.

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.

The Gracious Woman II

The gracious woman grows through her own self-reflection
Everything she goes through in life is a lesson
Her beauty is of essence such as her presence
Full of integrity, compassion, and optimistic guessing
The courage that she brings
Screams a strong woman destined
With the passion of a soldier at war
She is honorable, respectful, worthy and more
Qualities that must be adored

Scar Pt1

Reaching for my favorite shirt and the iron warming

Starched and ironed complete with those creases that cut

It was made for me and handsome.

And you and your brown eyes and irony when angry

Irony and starched and those same creases

 Our joy  crushed yet alive and waiting

And the fabric of those brown eyes

They are frayed with holes and still I starch and iron

Maybe if looked deeply you can see me and the creases

The scar is from that knife wound I gave you

You are proud of the stitching and your head held high

I feel sad when I see the sutures   on your chest

You wear them like a pair of worn slippers

They hurt the eye but they keep your feet warm

A Woman Created By Law and Men

The twelve were coming in …, 
twelve like gods, with sealed fates.
Mortals with keys to death and dungeons of hell, 
where devils walked in numbers, and are owned; 
they are someone’s belongings. I could not see me.
That place is it where there is blood without formed elements … 
or nutrients. Colors became significant (blue and red).
We know of the black and white barriers; 
the ones we pretend do not breathe in Washington. 
Brothers and a nation are built behind steel bars.

The thought of that woman, 
the woman that stands bold 
with torch beckoning to come and taste the dream, 
is like a haunted house, and I, a little child of three.
How she defends self-government 
while she’s trapped at sea. Freedom is a long way …
Liberty is far-flung, 
but I must not lose what is left of free will.
When the verdicts are festooned, 
they ought to downgrade the others;
there should be no rivalry. 
Without such it is simple to mislead the bulk.


I am my better half; 
I come clean without boasting on my tongue.
I often wondered if Hilary plagues … 
because she believes she has a better hand, 
or is there absolute amnesty. 
This thought I contemplate to summon sleep
 instead of counting sheep. 
The guy who swings the three iron, I often think of his wife; 
how her shoes were on to run. Was it hurt are shame?
Love is far too shallow to be called love.


I shall kill her, 
and set her in the depth, 
where she will be eaten by her conscience; 
sometimes I questioned if there’s one. 
Maybe one is near, but suppressed.
I must kill her 
with this ball-point that poured out the contents
of a lamenting soul; she must go before she is far gone. 
Is the law a crooked device,
 a mean provided for some to get even?
Who suffers when she cried wolf?
Hell is the amount of her condescension.
She has to die, to live anew, 
and to allow the halves to live.

Defied Kisses

Blasting sounds of tears
Fears are doomed to be passing
Mountain of affection provoke fake emotions
Raining thoughts of tress grow broken branches of feelings
Tribulations and trials in court cases
When Species promise you kisses
From the roots of hatred
Growing fears of affection
It’s a sip of a pois0ners kiss
My words avenge my time of death
It’s a kiss from the pois0ners snake
Never mind my brains
I am the prisoner of hate
You owe me a healthy kiss

Regret

Regret

I regret many things in my life.
Not been able to spend more time with my wife the love of my life.
I regret not been able to stay close to my mom and my dad, they were 
All I had, my childhood memory, that yellow truck my dad got me.
How wonderful life is when you are young, when you try to reach up to the sky.
Everything seems so tall that was my challenge to grow old. 

I regret not been there when my dad died. He loved me the most out of us nine!
I took care of him, helped him when he was weak, he used to tell me I don’t want to die I can’t leave. You are still young; I said: “hey are you serious dad”? “I have three kids!...I'm 53"
But I know he was too soft. He hated the thought of dying, he loved been with us just to make sure we're ok.

I regret when my mom died. She still bring tears to my eyes, my heart still bleeds
At the memory of her smile. When I need a back scratch she had the roughest hands
House work and cooking that she didn’t mind at all. I loved her all my life and when she got very sick she became like a child. Talking about why she can’t see in color any more?

It’s difficult to explain to a sick person especially your mom, you breakdown before you even start to tell her.

I regret when my wife fell sick with the big C, I questioned every little thing, to me I was always right in doing the right thing. How and why kept popping up every time I wondered
This thing happened too fast, it took me by surprise.
I blamed myself for not listening, when she complained about her agonizing pain, I thought it was just the same.

I regret many things in my life.
I thought If I can get a second chance, I would change it all again!

Invisible

They
Are
Among us.
Not alien
But more
Like us than
You will ever know.
They are
Neighbors
Dying
Of
Disease
And 
Hate
And
Grief.
They live
Next door
Behind walls
Built
Not of stone
But of fear.
Hungry
Penniless
Alone.
They are
Stereotypes
Birthing
Children.
Ad dictions
Carving
Flesh from
Bones.
They are
Sold
Into
Slavery
Beaten
By
Other
People's
Philosophies.
They are
Invisible.
But not

Modern Day Slave ( Wife and Mother )

Modern Day Slave ( Wife and Mother )


Not one single holiday
Three years have gone their way
Cleaning house
Changing diapers
Preparing meals
That are eaten in minutes

Not one single holiday
Four walls the only room to play
Ironing shirts
Washing clothes
Cleaning dishes
That get messed up every day

No
Not one single holiday
Mother’s life is meant to be this way
Surgical implant for the kitchen sink
She isn’t even allowed to think

While husband goes out on his hunt
Husband goes out for a beer
And eyes the other women who are there
Not for one minute does he think
Of the person at exhaustions brink

Robot wife she stays at home
Robot wife in her prison
Not one day off in 1095 days
Just a nigger
Just a slave

But mother hood was meant to be this way
Husband goes out earns the wage
Comes home tired and wants to rest
Complains that wife has not done her best

She hasn’t the strength to argue back
And she should be grateful 
There is no lack
Diapers are always replete
There is always enough to eat
Husband has done his job
Full time employment
Is his choice


But wife and mother she stays at home
Constantly on holiday
What holiday does she need
And we won’t mention driver fatigue

She takes all the responsibility
In bringing up their child
Husband never changes a single diaper
All he has to do is yell at her

Not one day off in 1095 days
Just a nigger
Just a slave
Never falls asleep at the wheel
But its ok she doesn’t even feel

Husband goes out to see his friends
Husband goes off on weekends
Husband never stays at home
Or lets his wife go out on her own
Husband is happy with his slave
Mother hood was meant to be this way
Working every day

House is spotless
House is clean
Husband has no reason to complain
Unpaid worker she stays at home
Gets her meals
And gets her roof
And does everything on her own

Happy day for husband today
He gets the chance to go away
Maybe some pretty girls will be there
So he can stand and stare
He’s so fed up of the tired dishevelled one
He finds at home 
When and if he is ever there

Three years without a holiday
Does the law of Human Rights say its ok
To be treated like a nigger
An unpaid mother
House maid
Like a slave

Another stuffed dead head
Above the fire place

Baby Interruptus

Somehow, through the haze that our lives have become,
we ended up next to each other, 
under the covers, 
with darkness and silence all around.

The soft sound of her rhythmic breathing; 
the faint scent of perfume worn off by the long, hectic day; 
the tickle of her hair in my face, 
reminds me that I still have a pulse.

Lightly, I stroke the length of her soft, bare back;
Gently, I press my lips where an earring was recently removed.

In a half sleep, she purrs and subtly moves her body closer to mine.
With eyes closed our bodies begin to melt into each other 
and a stirring of passion, long subdued, 
begins to awaken from beneath the slumber.

Silent is the darkness.

Slowly we adjust, 
turning towards each other, 
with anticipation keeping our worn bodies in motion 
against the want of sleep for which we lack.

A muffled creak escapes 
from a tired coil in the box spring beneath the weathered mattress, 
stifling the movement of our entangling limbs.

An unheard awareness of motion 
from the corner of the room.
 
A sigh. 
A peep. 
A moan. 
A cry 
and a wail. 

The pain of the colic 
has awakened the reminder of a love we once shared 
without fear of making a noise.

The bodies untangle, unfulfilled. 

She slips out from under the covers, 
dons her cotton robe 
and tends to the miracle struggling with life anew 
not knowing if or when the missed moment 
might occur again.

Marital regrets best left unkept

Through thick and thin those rules of a vow bent
It pricks within a bond never heaven sent
Numerous signs shown to eyes so love blind
A devious design should have been left behind

Boundaries we both set grossly overstepped
Promises meant to be kept now mostly regrets
Prayed for a family but deviated from folded hands
Heart slayed a tragedy then meditated to understand

Grass looked greener hopped the fence it was scorched
Needed a disclaimer the whole front yard torched
Searchin for a solution that holds no retribution
Never found absolution so separations the conclusion

To break out of bondage make sense out of nonsense
For a sexual offence have to find mental defense
Cant keep giving chances when options are squandered
Life would be advanceless if this i just pondered.

Husband, Im listening

I sat there listening to your words, 
as you told me
Told me, you felt my pain and cried 
my tears
Telling me you missed me, each and 
every night
While I cry, my sad sounds
Pouring my heart, releasing my 
roots
Listening and believing your words

Until, shadows start coming out the 
dark
Truth, shines upon my rose bush
Telling me, your not telling the truth
Thunder, keeps hitting my eardrums 
Trying to show me, you

I sat there listening to your words, 
as you told me
Told me, you felt my pain and cried 
my tears
Telling me you missed me, each and 
every night
While I cry, my sad sounds
Pouring my heart, releasing my 
roots
Listening and believing your words

I opened, my soul and listened
I relax my body, and took all the 
signs
Realizing, I'm hurt at the end and 
destroyed 
I'm home, suffering from this pain 
of love
While, your out having a good time
I'm home losing weight
While , your out eating at buffets
I'm home, not committing adultery
While, your out sinning under our 
skies
Creating more and more lies
Not realizing, shadows do come out
They come out the dark

I sat there listening to your words, 
as you told me
Told me, you felt my pain and cried 
my tears
Telling me you missed me, each and 
every night
While I cry, my sad sounds
Pouring my heart, releasing my 
roots
Listening and believing your words

I sent you money and cater, from 
afar
Understood, you are my husband
Under God, I shall obey
Obey , his laws
But , who's laws, do I obey
When all this sin, is in my skin
Ripping me apart
Far apart, from the one, I love

I sat there listening to his words, as 
he told me
Told me, he felt my pain and cried 
my tears
Telling me, he missed me, each and 
every night
While I cry, my sad sounds
Pouring my heart, releasing my 
roots
Listening and believing his words

Now!
What to do, my mind is so confuse
Confuse on walking away or staying
I guess, it's not up to you
Now , that I know the truth
The truth about listening, to your 
words

Shadowed Path

Thru a shadowed path, down a shadowed lane
Two lovers walk, the moonlight to gain.
The beauty of the walk is as beauteous as their love,
Shared thru a kindness, a reverence, and the touch of a hand.

A meadow comes into sight to eventually espy
Mists swirl in mystery as they begin to walk by.
But a fragrant rose pulls them, their attention drawn 
Thru the gates of an old house they gently begin forth

Who in love lived here long ago, now unseen?
What trials, what future, had they seen?
Their love built a life, and of course this home
Would that their lives could be so generously strewn.

Two lovers that lived so very long ago
And thru the years were repeatedly, celebrated so.
Now, two more have come as the man goes on bended knee
He picks the rose and delivers it up with a ring

He has bought this old house, a glorious old thing
To inspire her to wife, to repeat once more, an old beautiful dream
May the tale of this house and the old love it has seen
Inspire a new couple to a great life once again.

Candle Silhouettes

For every beginning
Why must there be an end
Shadows creased where whispers cease
Memories bristling past me
like a Mediterranean love affair
Jasmine wisps of your unbridled hair
Brushing my face in waves of azure
Eyes locked so hearts could endure

The bed is made
But your impression is still there
Soft and tangible, subtle yet indelible 
Candle silhouettes where laughter lit
Fiery portraits of passion’s first kiss
The intimacy of a beauty we shared  
Eternity embroidered on your pillow top
Undisturbed promises that I never forgot

I sometimes call
Unsure of what to say or do
Cradling you in this immortal room 
As cisterns of sorrow spill unwrapped perfume
Where burnt cinnamon candles have beaded cold
Next to the Venetian lamp, by your widowed phone
Hoping somehow…someway
I won’t wake-up alone

David Meets Goliath

     And David slew Goliath
       The goliath of his cares 
        A little lad he was in stature
         But a giant at heart he is 
          He steps up to mammoth trials
           His chest with armor bare
             Knowing a thrust from this giant
              Will through him run his spear
                But the giant hearted young lad
                  Stepped up with lack of fear
                   He knows his God is with him
                     And naught can he destroy
                      So bravely go he faces
                       Old Goliath and his spear
                        And conquer he did conquer
                         As with empathy we show we care

Be my life


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

My Nest

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

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

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

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

Night Riser

Lunette, i was named at birth and it perfectly suited me
cuz i was always up at night, observing it with scrutiny
i had a little secret, only Abhi knew and trusted me
he was my best friend ever, he believed in my destiny

i loved the moon and had a song
the song gave me answers in my heart
i didn't know how i knew that song
but it helped me seperate the right and wrong

The project i had in college was huge
Yen was arranging for Mr. Fiddle, but he refused
Mr. Fiddle was an astronaut, famous and renowned
But asking for his help, only left him frowned

"Lune, do you know him?" Yen asked me one day
"Why?" I asked confused, "He likes you!" Yen was about to say
"I don't know him!" i said to Yen, the joker
All he would do is fool around and play poker

"Fiddle said he'd meet us, only if you come along"
Was Yen telling the truth? Only one way to find right from wrong
at night i sung my song, asking moon for its help
i called Fiddle on his number, i knew that voice from somewhere

We set ready to meet him, Abhi, Yen, Marsella and me
Marsella and I were bff's once, but now I ignored her completely
After formal meetings at Fiddle's house, the others left me with him
all i wanted now is truth and only truth from him

"You're not a human Lune, Night Riser's, we are
I am your grandpa Lune, i've searched for you, wide and far"
He was kidding, i thought, i was not an alien
But then he sung my moon song, how did he know about it?

he started his story and involuntarily i sat still
i wanted to know the truth, no matter what will
"Pikshtra invaded our planet, Prisma" grandpa started to tell
"a bad person he was, he used explosives there"

"he bought me and my wife on earth for some research
a top secret thing it was, but for us, scientific torture
electric shocks and huge machines, made us unhealthy
in return all it did to him was make him wealthy"

"We tried to escape and managed at once
for a few years we got rid of him
We had a son, who was married by then
and two beautiful granddaughters was our gift"

"Pikshtra found us, on the birth day of my granddaughters
we ran in different direction, getting seperated
i lost my wife and others as well
But found both my grand daughters..."

"Where is my sister then?" i asked
"You know her" Fiddle said
"Marsella it is" he added along
it was too much to digest, i wanted to sing my song...

The Breathe of God

The breathe of God is in the touch of the wind.
The tears of God are in the rain.
The anger of God is in nature’s violent force.
And the love of God is in the eyes of the one you truly love.

Bring me a kiss with the gale force of your love,
As it swirls around me throughout this day.
Make it be the touch of that wind… that will bring us back again.
Let it wrap around our hearts to bind them in heavenly bliss…
Then bring your arms to surround me and bring us together again.
In the Church of Love let us meet… by the ocean of heavenly bliss.

Perfectly you

You say you aren't perfect,
but look again and behold yourself; perfectly you.
Your tears be heavy-laden with guilt;
also remember, they glisten with remorse.
The sea water of the eye cleanses wounds old
and leads life to the good vulnerability
that teaches humility and belief.

Singing; your voice awakens the dawn
and dancing you set the moon.
Entrancing, you smile
and for a moment I glimpse forever.
Joy's child is your way
and grace is in your name.

Awake in the watches of the night
He watches your panic weeping;
wanting your day to soar 
and set twilight leaping.
Stars twinkle in sympathy,
and meteors lead sight to the other.
Come away with me my love and wink at suns.

A Woman Like You

   Always I have dreamed of loving a woman like you ,
So kind and understanding in all of the things you do.
   Everyday you are always the same so full of life,
Making me so proud the day you become my wife.
    Never do I worry when things do not go my way,
Only words of encouragement you would have to say.
    To hear  you laugh or to see  your beautiful smile ,
Stays with me in my thoghts for such a long while.
    I am forever thinking of the happiness you bring me,
Confirming our lives together  was always meant to be .
   Every night I Thank my Lord for how special you've been,
I find myself a very Blessed man for what he did.
   A person could ask for no more when it comes to love ,
Especially when there's no doubt it was made from above.

skin to skin heart to heart

Skin to skin
heart to heart
bonded together
by sheer devotion
fuelled by waves of the sweetest emotion
through giving caring and sharing
a beautiful union
of deep unquenchable desire
born of true eternal love.

Gothic Mother's Day Poem

Your beauty is a ripe and full
as the moon in view
so many tried to compete but there
talents were to few
for the mother that you are
is a hard act to follow
the love that you bring
voids the hollow
for our child's life is vibrant
due to your generous amount of love
so happy mother's babe
for you have to give you already gave.
(To my wife Courtney Dyer)

Love Will Out

In February? Sun burn from looking up at the sky? 
My Oh My… Yes, it’s so very nice and warm.
The trees are blooming and it warms my heart.
Even the groundhog came out, smiled, and looked around…
Six more weeks of this winter? The Best there’s been…
I’ll get out my Valentine trappings tomorrow at dawn.
Then I will go get our leaf blower and make it to blow…
Bubbles and Valentine hearts high in the air…everywhere… 
When my Hubby reaches our home and walks in the door…
I’ll cover him in hearts full of love… with kisses galore…
Yes, I’ll show him my heart… As he walks in… 
I’m sure… On Valentine’s Day our hearts will soar, again…

Happy Valentine’s Day to All and your Loves…

The spell life cast on relationships

What happened to relationship compromising
Instead they become equally mentally damaging
practicing the art of being demanding
When they should be actively searching for understanding

When they could be workin on openness 
They remain focused on personal business
And the mistakes grow relentless
Entering late to be rebellious

But noones jealous
Both with their time selfish

They've mastered keeping their hands and bodies to themselves
These chapters reaching lands where everybodies love shelved
And with no antidote to break this spell
It works its magic from twelve back to twelve

I Have The Evil of You

I have the evil of you
Caught in my hands, entangled
Like the arabesques of Eden's vines
Just like paradise, but why should shame remain
Singeing like immolation of Peter's Inferno
These reddish-purple chains convolute myself
as the grapples shoot out from the clouds
both below, above me
The self-lovelust propelling 
You did this - these plagues
You drag me down - to your cage
Cadaver Vampire - I am your slave

Who Will LOVE

Who can Love? ALL
Who must Love? ALL
Who will Love?

Love is like that light you see in darkness
Like the notes you play that just sounds right
It's like the triumph you want to caress
It's as beautiful as the stars at night

Love it like that piece that completes the unfinished
Like the sapphire, stands a masterpiece parcel
It is that model that just keeps being furnished
Love is like, like that song that later becomes an anthem

Love is that fantasy that dominates every woman
It's the pivot that holds the world
That platform grinding the heart of a man
It's a dream, better to have than to let fall

Astonishing like the Apollo's Great Step
Connecting like the Bill Gate's Software
Legendary like Micheal Jackson's conquest
Tremendous like the Mount Everest

You CANNOT extinct Love
It eats into the fabrics of those it wants
So, WHO WILL LOVE?
.... EVERYONE

Fame

 

Seeking a better life and with chance at hand, our new life awaits
Wife hires on as servant, daughter and I stowaway as it departs
Our life's dreams sail on the USS Titanic, a new future to create 
daughter and I conceal ourselves while wife toils with bunk-mates

We would change places to stay warm from bitter cold and storm
my young baby I wrapped up tight, this kept her warm to my delight
We count days till our new home, I worry and pray my wife is warm
A few days passed till that night I awoke in sheer terror and fright

Hearing metal tear, as cries and screams begin a siren sounds above
We're in warmth deep beneath the decks I grab my joy to face regret
We're not far from mom, I push and shove to get her one deck above
The time is short as I open door, to reveal wife's tears, glad to see, yet

to escape I tie a rope about our waists for in this flight can't separate
Then we begin our quest to the night air knowing we're 5 decks below
scaling 2 decks with speed, all converge but keep moving can't hesitate
Baby in hand we drag and claw moving to air, all moving with the flow

One more flight of stairs to fresh air, I take wife's hand to lead her their
Ship tilts as we get through door to sky then falling down into the night
A sudden jerk as rope catches pipe saving us as others fall in pairs
with bitter cold and death insight, I plan again how to win this fight

A mans wool coat 4 feet above I grab his coat as life slips from hope
Wrapping about my baby and wife, for warmth, in this my last night
Water rising swiftly only a few feet below, I swing wife and cut rope
Their flight to the ocean, as I follow them into the icy cold midnight

We find each other in this dark abyss, then fight to swim to life
We reach trash still afloat raising wife and babe to safety I cover tight
death assured in my last fight I tie raft to boat and tell my loving wife
I love you both fight to save your lives, as I sink from view in the night

Hours passed her body heat spent, pulls to boat in her last attempt
She wraps baby in all the clothes and begs they save her from my fame
Her baby safe as she can plan she cuts the rope with this last lament
When you all survive, let all who ask know my sweet daughter's name




This is a fictional account of the youngest survivors journey to safety, Elizabeth Gladys Dean

Heart and Soul


Heart and Soul

From the depths of my heart, thru the breath of my soul
You’ve held me in your hands to pliably mold
And I held on to you in just the same way

As we made choices together each and every day.
Two individuals with always the same goal
Running thru life with someone to hold.

When one fell down the other held on
As the other grew sick we regrouped to rebound
Life is a trial but with you it’s more fun.

And when we finally stop to reminisce, again we’ll be young.

My Baby

You are my rock, The shelter of 
my heart, The house that builds 
me, on this white pearly, golden,
platform, with our father, 
The Almighty, You are 
the seed, planting me, In A 
garden of full bloom, beyond 
the growth of A flower, You are 
my blanket, Of Southern 
Comfort, That kept me warm, 
Without you there's "NO 
MEANING," to my LOVE, I 
thank GOD, the day He put you 
on this EARTH, and MADE you 
MINE, My Baby you are that 
precious gem, In my eyes, I 
gleam shinning,TRUTH N' HONESY,
Never To Loose Sight,Never To 
Make You Mad,or Never To Make 
You Angry,Never To Make You Cry, 
Never To Break Your Heart, 
Never To Abuse, Nor Neglect, 
You......
I only want to give, You A 
GENUINE LIFE, AS YOUR WIFE, 
AS YOU MY HUSBAND,
as we go hand n' hand to 
begin, This conquest journey, 
against the burning sun, to the 
ends of the moon, "YES," we 
will struggle, Even fight like, 
The cats n' dogs, but what 
relationship doesn't, it will only 
make us stronger, or it may
even break us, but as we strive 
to our best, forth each 
other, To bond our passion, 
in wed-lock,,,,,
Because loving you, 
makes it all worth the wild 
against the sand... I love you, 
My Baby!!!

noise and ooze

my commode has been making noise
that my wife tried to fix it
only to make it worse
and now it started leaking too

by the time i saw it
the washroom was flooded
and i’m no plumber to fix it
neither am i an idiot to avoid it

so, i did with manly mettle, mettle with it
and tightened, at the end, the right nut
for both the noise, and the ooze to prevent

we did leave home thereafter
i, carrying a washroom in ooze
while my wife, walking in perfect poise

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

Wedding bells

Wedding bells isn't a big pretty dress or handsome tucks. 

Wedding bells isn't a big church or ball room. And last but 

least, many think it's about family and friends. A wedding is 

mirage, it's love between two. It's a bind many love to let 

pass by.  It's a connection two feel. A moment for both to be 

happy. It's a wedding, true love shall combine. It's a moment 

no-one can break. It's a smile hurting your jaw. Causing your 

heart to truly skip a beat. It's feeling your love in the air.  

Hearing the music in the ocean.  It's letting love make the 

clouds. Wedding bells is saying, I do for life. It's remembering 

your vows.  Holding each others hands and remembering 

sweet moments.  Not letting go for eternity. Giving the long 

lasting kiss. A kiss to remember for life. A true love kiss under 

wedding bells. Wedding bells that brought two humans into 

one. Into one wedding bell.........

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.

The Evil Elixir

He's up in the morning at 7 a.m.
Black coffee and paper. Toast and jam
His hair is perfection. His tie is secure
He's ready to take on the day

From home to the office, a 90 minute trip
Dumbass drivers and cell phone quips
Thoughts for the job that race through his head
To help earn himself better pay

A tiger by nine, he's doing just fine
Then noon brings a lunch that's followed by wine
From one until five he then starts to morph
When it's off to the bar for some more

A couple of shots with a beer back to boot
Three hours later he's got a full snoot
An illegal drive from the bar to his home
Now he can really tie one on

The morning sun shines on the man he should be
The evening brings a change by degree
The evil elixir turns man to a monster
With all sense of sanity gone

passion and persuation

The Illuminating path's Serenade my Vision, The Blindening Rays of faithful horizon leap into me, Our Memories of togetherness clasp me to the loop of life, still I am lusting to cross-over and meet the Chaismatic-End!! After which,our souls will intertwine and remain in enlightened glory forever! Life had been an autumn full of blossoms, My love lay in my arms in unrequited glory, life was a maze of puzzled quotes, the dooming evil recruited you into its gloomy shadows, and i learn't my first chapter about death. DEATH is a slow poison gushing through time and seeping through seconds, Blistering a thousand souls, abandoning a many infants, sucking away the more needed ones, Thwarting pain and inflicting illicit wounds. BUT losing hope means losing "US" At a jerk,our infancy angel crosses over with warmth, And the hallucinating illuminating paths fade away!! And i realize my quest in this unfarthomable journey, TO LIVE,LOVE AND SUCCEED DEATH!!

Thirsty

There was a spider webbing himself
an empire along my bathroom
walls.
It had sat there for weeks
devouring
everything
that happened along its web.

Feeling the thirst
come upon me one night
I left my bed, 
my wife & child,
went into the bathroom,
found that spider
& sat beside it for a few
moments.

There it sat juicing
some small fly.

After its meal
I smashed the life out of it
with my bare hand.
Its carcass glued to my palm
I went back to bed
beside my wife & child
still
thirsty.

Into Winterberry Ash

Caught upon an evening Pass the arms on edge Of rocking chair trails reeling Sipping away into fairy tale Wild off, cool life teas Melting ice, and lemon veranda breeze By and by bloomers chase In and out, of innocent days To the last of Indian summer And brittle beneath awakes Crying boards that ever creak As all familiar remembers A voice bone deep, is missed Rattles toward the center And out pass the winds and placid lake September “Oh, dear Evelyn” our dreams Hung under wind chime tingles Trace love amid soft autumns twinkle No longer songbird melodies braid In early morning after children Now shadow, in the splashes of sunning place Timepiece is now the empty grass Once with, now without you As I end a road that leads nearer to your path And sooner wither folds Under snow, bird angels holding hands High into winterberry ash

FIGURES

I reach deep withen and capture your soul
i get entangled withen the webs of your lies
deeper i fall beyond the greatness of your faults
passionatly we embark on a road of destruction
you curse what i belived as holy
just to find yourself crucified
you dish my kindness and humility
and walk all over my heart
you walk away everyday 
just to turn around and say

My Flower

You are the flower that

You are my loving wife.

Doggie Moss

My husband’s eyes are tearing up! Yes, it’s that time of year!
The doggie moss just keeps creeping, everywhere my dear.
Wherever does it come from? It seems to keep eluding me, for sure.
As it constantly creeps in to cover my carpet, like a fine velour.
I complain daily to my hubby, as it attacks my dogs and house.
I say, its a fine black sheen that floats in the air, through out.
My hubby doesn’t understand… He says its only hair from the shedding dogs.
But I assure him daily that it’s truly nothing of the kind, my love…
I groom the doggies, saying its to save the dogs and destroy the moss. 
Each time I explain about the moss, my hubby promptly snorts.
Then his eyes begin to twinkle as they slowly water up.
He heard me pray to God one day to help me with the moss.
He says he stumped his toe as the snort turned into a lions roar.
But when I went into the room he was doubled up, rolling on the floor.
Again his eyes were tearing as I swear I heard him trying to stifle a loud guffaw…
Then the next day he brought me home a gift, an adorable white poodle dog.
He said it’d prove it wasn’t moss and was coming from the other dogs.
I felt I had to explain, that the poor white poodle was also being struck. 
Then, I sadly showed him the black velour also adhering to it’s fluff.
He looked totally incredulous, as the tears came again, with a lively snort.
He’s way too kind as he tries not to laugh at my antics… to my face.
He would never hurt my feelings, for he thinks I believe earnestly what I say.
I don’t think he’ll ever catch on… as he tries not to tremble from his mirth.

Now, I know you may think me crazy… Though, we all are, in each our own way…
Actually, I do know it’s the dogs shedding, though that I’ll never admit or betray.
For every time he tries not to laugh, its too much fun to miss the display.

The Importance of pomposity

The importance of Pomposity
(Not to be taken seriously)

The Perfect life, a wife half his age
Their house grand, with a zip code to match
All bought and paid for.
No hawkers, appointments only

But look closer
The Wife bides her time, waiting for his demise,
A heart attack would be nice
For she has her own dreams 
No love baked bread here
No roses from seed.
A plastic hug, on a plastic lawn his reward

The library full of Shakespeare and Keats
Never opened, for it’s the show that counts
Dinner Parties, A new painting
Purchased, because we can,
A favourite phrase for American wealth,

Pompous talk of Wine and Poetry
Vinegar, and Plagiarism their only worth,
Still the new boob job to admire
Perhaps a recipe, her mother’s creation
Michel Roux the real star.

The children born out of lust not love
Sent away to England, Trophy kids,
Breast fed by American Express.
The Debutants Ball awaits them
And a hoorah Henry wedding their destiny

Church on Sunday
New money at the front
The old money sitting in the private pew
God for sale, 
And the greenback will mop the saint’s brow
A church of Pomposity

Even in death a grand memorial
But decay gives no privilege
Let’s hope the pearly gates are the right colour
And god has the right zip code
For pomposity, might just send them to the wrong house.

house those four called a home I wish I could wake up from this

The Gracious Woman

The gracious woman is hated
She is not overrated but such a natural one
Morals and values dictated
Through her trials and tribulations her smiles stun
Family and friends created
Stay optimistic throughout the long run
The woman is so courageous
A strong heart is number one
She seems to be contagious
Her relationships are always undone
Her worthiness is outrageous
To find another is dreadful
To lose her is regretful
A woman of this caliber is so special

Partners in Life and Love

Walk me to the riverside drown me in my sorrows.
Then I may begin again and this time with much more.
When you drown I and my sorrows wake your spirit.
So we may travel on this road so short and narrow.
Each day I face your honor and your fortitude.
I awaken to a new paradox that you call plain love.
Love has always been hard for me to cling too.
Not that I am heartless, you know that I am not.
We cherish each other, we serve one another.
We, as you say can beat any battle that we face.
So if I stagger and do not fall, start me out again.
Keep me on the same track that your heart travels.
And our lives together will be full of such rewards.
While our love and partnership will last forever.

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

Patradoot or The Messenger 26/Many

Patradoot or The Messenger26 /Many 
  
English version by  Ravindra K Kapoor 
Originally written in Hindi by my 
Late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor


These Indian women, who were called salves of man,
And even showed as degraded by the writer publisher Ms. Mayo,
You would see, what courage and bravery they have shown,
You can witness and see from your eyes, dear letter.

You will see them fighting fearlessly, dear letter,
While wearing beautiful saffron color sarees,
As if,  the goddess of courage is giving them strength,
To peacefully face lathe's and beatings on them,

Some where you will witness on your way, dear letter,
How bravely these women are struggling, while bearing,
Tortures and lathe’s in love of their motherland,
They go even to jails without fearing cruealities.

Such was the courage faced by brave and bold Indira,*
The only daughter of Kamla* on Zero Road, dear letter,
When she saved the honor of national flag,
While fearlessly struggling to carry on the procession.

by the British, as he was fighting for India's freedom 
under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi. After India’s
independence as a true follower of Gandhi Dr. Amar Nath 
Kapoor left active politics and devoted rest of his life in 
writing easy mass literature and wrote many Dramas, 
Poetry books, epics. All his other literary 
works were mainly written from 1955 to 1990. 
He left this mortal world in 1994.

wrong

after the rage is over
affter the temper is quelled
when i hear my heart beat
so soft and still

i want to come running
to tell you i was wrong
i was wrong to feel my way
i was wrong to want my way

but....somehow i also
feel if i am not wrong you

Who resembles you

 Who resembles you? 
A drunken night 
Or a jealous star 
A colored full moon 
Or shy cottage
Who resembles you? 
A virgin lark 
Or blond flower 
Who resembles love? 
Believing in you 
Who resembles a soul? 
Living in you 
Who resembles a heart? 
Pulsing for you
Who resembles a shadow? 
Walking beside you 
Who resembles a mirror? 
Reflecting your charm
All narrations of the past were illusion 
Not resembling you 
All butterflies of the world 
Were a tattoo in your hands 
Not resembling you 
All perfumes of the world 
Were a wine in your lips 
Not resembling you........

God is in the Details

I want to
               Do
Things
            To you …

My fingers dance
Restless, tingling

Remember our
First night?

OH

MY

GAWD!

My tongue trembles
Behind my lips,
Warm, luxurious,

Waiting …

Remember?
That first night?

    Oh

And my 
              Netherworld?

My
Bristly, furry forest?

Wants its pine cones plucked its
Needles stroked its
Burgeoning wildlife tamed –

Hey! You can bark
Up this tree
Any time, honey!

Oh do I

Want to do

Things
               To you

Remember that, first.

Night? Oh My Gawd!
Come here come here, come

   Here

Come
Hither and yon

Comfort in my arms

As you lay right beside me
Snuggled tightly in my arms
I haven’t got a care in the world

Your sweet smell envelops me
Your soft gentle, skin caresses mine
As warmth is shared, our bodies curled

Stress and worry dissipate
Finding comfort in each other
As our two souls become one

We drift gently off to sleep
As our breathing begin to sync
As if our love has just begun

Waking still in my embrace
Not wanting to leave each other
But we let go all the same

Now we’re off to seize the day
Knowing we will return again
To that comfort we will reclaim

Fired Up

Fired Up

Suddenly slow, then frozen up…My heart began to pound.
My computer means so much to me. It’s my touch to the outside world.
Then my knight came in the door… determined my dragon to slay. 
And let me tell you… as dragons go… he can slay anything.

Dragon fire can be hot, but this one was immensely worse.
Nothing at all seemed to work. This dragon was really strong.
Shield after shield fell from my knights’ grip… 
But thank God… he never, ever gave up.

Night after night he fought with might and studied his foe with thought.
Each night he scanned every road… for where a lair could be stowed.
His sword swung with might nightly… erasing him from the land. 
But still the dragon was able to come back breathing fire upon all at hand.

He knew how to open every back door. He was cleverer than any I had seen.
But steady as a rock my knight and prince… continued to protect my way of life.
Finally, one day, with four new shields and with Excalibur by his side…
The dragon's spawn was slayed one last time,  then a miraculous silence remained…

My knight had sacrificed so much time and sleep… that I truly cried.
This dragon was from a far away land where more dragons are made with pride.
But my dear knight is willing to wait by my side… His shield and sword nearby.
Thank you I say with hugs and kisses… For my knight in shining armor, my life…

Sense

Do you remember how she smelled
like Christmas?

How she smiled
like rain?

Do you think of her, sometimes
when snow and laundry soap
fill your senses?

Or when the wind catches the leaves
and they laugh in your ear
sing you to sleep?

Maybe it's the reason your eyes cloud over
when you feel silk 
against your fingers

Because for a moment 
you're cradled in her arms
Peter Pan and Hook
tugging at your eyelashes

Some bittersweet reminisce 
of quilted portrait frames
salted tears
and candy-cane red lipstick
tuning your dreams

And with simple twinges of regret
feather-like brushes of remorse
you cave
collapse

 Wish you could remember more
than a smell
or a sound
fainter than teardrops

Wish everything didn't remind you
you couldn't.

Just Because I said I Do

The nagging about little things
To the complaining about you need socks
Never wanting to do a thing I ask
Just because I said I do 

I love when I come home to a mess
Clothes here, Socks there, plates in the living room 
Just  for once pick up one thing 
You only do what you want 

I love you with my heart
But just because I said I do 
You need to help to 
Its the two of us not only one

Weekend

My wife and I
visited San Francisco
last weekend.

We went to the
opera,
a 49ers game,
shopping,
and took a 
whole bunch of
pictures.

You know,
all the
popular
and trendy
places that
tourists take in.


We both
love
chinese,
therefore,
we went to
chinatown 
for dinner
both nights.


We thought we'd try
a new restaurant our 
last night.

I thought
the meal was very good,
much better than
yesterday's meal

whereas,

my wife preferred
last night's 
meal at

The Fight and How It Felt

She threw me the hurtful look, that bleeding-inside feeling
Fell upon me and the whip lashed well
Across those deep soft parts
That quiver within and dare not show themselves.

I nearly snarled, the need to cool pain its transfer was great,
But then the blackness of the moment
Blinded my soul and filled it with Sad,
And whatever inward strength I had deserted me.

Love, replete with sins of omission,
Keeps count of the subtle slights
And stores them in its pantry of poisons
Ready to pour into one another's wounds whenever wretchedness
Brings the bonding close and sharp together.

All the love in the sun is good
Where we want to always be, though we cannot,
For life will not permit this.
The sun casts shadows that follow behind us and threaten;
Better to stand in pairs and face them
To suffer together and learn
Learn to take it all as it comes at us, feel through all the abuse
And grope beyond 
To where control depends on us alone
To where no games are played
To where the truth is told plainly, face to face,
To where we love and afflict one another because it is so empty and fearsome
To be alone.
Together we are more than one, less than two, stronger than all.

Lash went the whip and the pain burnt clear
Why such a ritual must be followed is not for reason to sort out
For the Fates have tied our lives together and we must walk as one
With the heart of each in the other's hand,
Knowing love to be a thing of fear and anger and confusion
Quite thoroughly mixed with joy.
So strike out and savor the hurt that flows in the bad times,
That it may teach us what we need to know about the good times,
And those good times tell us what we need to know about ourselves.

My love for you is too great to be put off by pain.
Come along my dear, let's step back into our private world,
Ready to go at it all again.

Seeds of love

She planted seeds of love deep in my heart
that flourished and bloomed like a flower
nourished with tender care
and summer love
with soft warm kisses
that rained down on me
like a welcome refreshing
invigorating shower.

Measuring Movements

Somewhere upon the terminator’s birth
The young lovers dance and sway
To a symphony of dawn and starlight
Undulating within newfound passions
These two naively press and discover
The zealous meaning of temperate youth

Lost within the mornings heavy rise
They run through the soft breaking crests
Crashing upon their rococo painted beaches
Living only in the ardor of today’s breath
They pay no heed to the passing of the hour
Twisted adrift the spinning of the moment

Beneath the sweated midday heat 
The aging lovers croon forlornly
Calling out to their passing adolescence
With a softening of fear in each other’s eyes
They gently slip back into the hypnotic
And dance in the divine for a moment longer

Standing in the approaching twilight
The aged lovers stand in raptures kiss
Remembering the moments of yesterdays past
No longer young but still ever vibrant
They languidly begin those heavy laboring steps
Of their life’s final dance together…

Woman from Congo

I am woman … 
WOMAN
Of Congo, 
Chewed, 
Spat out,
And bestowed with straw basket
To fetch water. 
You set upon us 
Wild dogs, 
Stretching our legs wide,
Ripping out our genitals and dignity
To nurse your children’s 
Craving.

‘fore you design gods;
Ones who create dolts, 
Small-minded folks, 
And feast on minerals – 
Congo was a lady
And I … I am
WOMAN, 
Strong black woman.

I bought some views 
On black market; 
They are rare commodities,
Sat down with glass of nsamba
on the rocks
And seriously contemplate …

It is hard to buy
Black market stuff;
We are set up
To think
East is inferior to west,
Barring them Europeans
Who broke their necks
To dwell in Canaan.

One thing is for sure,
They alleged a better name
And substitute 
The ones we were given;
Those with implications.
Oh, what things we see
When we start looking
From our own eyes.

I am WOMAN …
Woman alone
And taken against my desire,
Ravished by the corporations;
The gods who create your children
I am WOMAN, 
Woman from Congo.

Innocence behind bars

Lurking behind the bars
He ,time and again remembers the day
The day when he was woken 
from his warm bed	
With a gun pointed at his temple
Startled, he heard the screams
of his wife from his bedside
Ruthlessly pushed down 
and dragged through the stairs
Rolled mercilessly into a military van
That was the last day ,he heard his wife…
her shrieking cries
Still after so many years, he does not know
why this happened to him
They told him that someone informed them
that he was a terrorist
While the truth was 
that he wasn’t aware of anything
He just knew, to live a simple life 
with his wife and family
Snatched from his nest ,
he lurks in a cold bed
No hopes left, since now he knows
That no one knows about his whereabouts
His kids and family are not even aware
Whether he is dead or alive
He has been now officially listed
in ‘missing persons’ list
His dreams snatched from his eyes
Innocence lurks behind the bars
And on the other side
A wife waits and hopelessly waits
for her missing husband


Note…my place Kashmir has witnessed unrest for two decades now…innocent people were taken from their beds and branded as terrorists by government agencies…most of the arrests had no paper work so there was no record of their arrests so no one knows where they are…though most of them were killed in custody and then buried in mass graves ,some of them may still be lurking in some unknown jails..The wife’s of such person’s are known as ‘Half widows’ here …hundreds  of such half widows are waiting for their husbands…

Hospice

Her hands shook
as they wheeled
him away.
Had his lips
been dry? 
Had his body
ached? 
Had he longed
for a touch
against his
fragile skin? 
Could she
have done more
to relieve
his pain? 
Could she
have loved him more, 
needed him more, 
begged him more
to stay? 
Her head swam
in the deafening silence
of guilt and sorrow
as she
buried herself
for feeling
relief.

I swear


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

When you sleep
I swear to wander in your dreams

When you laugh!
I swear to melt in your breathes

When you cry!
I swear to freeze in your tears

Lady…

In your eyes
I swear that silence is full of words

In your heart
I swear that love is full of wishes

In your lips
I swear that perfume is full of kisses

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

Ode to H.W. Longfellow

  
		
In his chest, his heart to bare.
All the pain and sorrow there.
   
Fire! Fire!  Everywhere!
Screaming! Crying! In despair.
   
Vailiantly dashing the flames he chased.
The fire melting his loves life, cotton and lace.
            
Scars to hide, upon his face. 
Still Henrys quill went on to trace
.            
"The Cross of Snow", a sweet sweet lay.
Of the wife he lost on that sad day. 
            
His thoughts of Fanny would harken him.
And is now at rest, with his mighty pen.......

The REASON

 The reason I married you is as clear to me as the day I first saw you.
  I married you because I love you.
  I married you because of all the men in the world you were the one I had connected with in 
                                                  a special way.

  You are the man I see myself growing old with--- the man I want to build my family with--- the man I adore.
 

  There are no hidden agendas, no secrets, no mysteries, no incomprehensible motive.

  I married you because I just simply love you!

IDEAL COUPLE

I do like her beautiful eyebrow 
But she plucked it and drew something 
I do like her beautiful eyelash and eyelid 
But she painted it with colors 
I do like her reddish lip 
But she always uses lipstick 
I do like the melody 
But she likes rock 
I do like family movies 
But she likes action movies 
I do like watching discovery 
But she likes comedy series 
I am a vegetarian 
But she is a non vegetarian 
I do like cheap outfits 
But she likes costly 
We are acting as an ideal couple.

From A Husband To His Wife

It's been seven years since i said "I Do" and times got hard but we got through them because I have you. I miss the partying and clubbing, but I love this kissing and hugging. Being in a relationship, you must be ready to commit to the loving, fussing and fighting and the long nights. I gave up these things because I wanted the best for us. I wanted you to know that I was ready for your loving, caring and trust. Years have past and I'm glad we made this commitment because you are the best thing in my life and I'm glad to call you my wife.

The Deadly, Fatal Kiss Of The Spider Woman

After she drank his bitter wine of selfish, pathetic love
She slyly sang him her haunted chant 
"The laughs on you", she crooned in her soft malicious tune

At times, she could act with chicane
She had many charms when treated well...
Deadly ones - when not
Oh yes...
She herself may at times have sinned
But he-had the stain of evil, paltry love

Now...Inside her gossamer labyrinth she lay
Carefully, diligently spinning her web
Revealing nothing-and everything
She'd weave her silky snare inside his heart
Laying her toxic eggs of betrayed despair
Spinning her poisonus venom of painful truth

Oh yes...
Her bite is deadly now
She could have been his 'Velvet Rose'
But, he crushed her petals rare
Ending her silken dreams
With his evil malicious schemes
Her spider's web became untethered
Attaching itself by a single thread
To his shoddy veil of evil, selfish love
    Now...She is the hunter
    And...He is the hunted
In the coming eve... 
She'd deliver her poisonous, lethal sting
He'd be noones's lover now
Her threads would cut his miserable flesh
Her deadly venom would seal his fate
Remaining nothing more
Than an ancient, slithering shadow
All along the castle walls

For some time a deadly secret she doth keep
"Revenge”, she whispers, while he sleeps
 
She was once his only lady
With ivory skin and beauty fair
She fed him nectar from her raven hair
His betrayal seared her hemorrhaged heart
She'd warned him with many words and fiery stares

"Thou shalt not indulge in wicked fare
Be ever so watchful, do not betray
Beware, where thou heart doth leave
Take heed" said she, "Just who thy seed deceives".

In her chamber dark at night, this maiden fair
Planned his demise with scourged nectar, bitter sweet
Stirring her venomous, poisonous treat
Or would dagger to his heart she’d plant
Bid him die a dark and painful lingering death
Upon his sleeping body that she'd leave 
As she crept silently into his chamber - 
These words she bitterly but victoriously said...

"Thou shalt betray no more. 
Thou has sinned against me...
Taken my love in shame
"Betray no more", she said".
     But now
Thou is thankfully, forever DEAD!"

Her silken threads had cut his miserable flesh
Her deadly venom had sealed his fate
    Now...he remained nothing more
Than an ancient, slithering shadow...
All along her castle walls

                                  ____________________________________

I Just Found Out The Meaning

I just found out the meaning to my bachelorhood. 
Now, it's clear to me that those experiences I had earlier are lovelorn.
I've just found the reciprocal affection 
I have been struggling for all these years in courtship.

I just realize I have found the right woman for my unborn generations.
I've just found the true companion I can confide in at all time.  
I found love at last in this angel who now means the world to me.
God! Thank you to have sent her to me on time,
And not until the beauties in her has faded like tainted rose.

My prayer now is that God shouldn't let me lose someone
Like her that would be very hard to replace.
And I as well pray not to find any course (at a later time) to regret or curse the day we met.
I've just found out she needs white roses; she is a virgin.

I don't remember or crave

I remember when, we would yakkety-yak, so many hours on the phone.
Feeling so almighty, not wanting to end our conversations.
My every brain-work, was always you. 
Your name, kept going threw my mind.

Now, we never talk.
We email each other like strangers. 
Then, not everyday.

Our lives have changed so much. 
To the point, were our friendship isn't there.
My heart doesn't skip a beat anymore.
Instead, it seems to beat, very slow.
Causing physical pain, as I hold my chest.

Now!

I don't like hearing your name or seeing it spelled.
Remembering when, we would crave to see each other.
Hold each other, so much.
Not wanting to be apart.
Always laughing and smiling.
Eating has one.
Remembering, the stare we had.
We couldn't keep our eyes off our flesh.
Our nights, seemed lonely without our touch.

Now!

We don't crave, or see each other.
We never laugh or smile.
We never eat together.
Now our hands don't touch.
The sad part is, I could care less.
Care less on wanting it back.
I don't miss it or need it.
For it's you, I can thank.

You gave me the strength, to leave you.
You gave me the strength, to forget about you.
You gave me the strength, to erase our memories.
All , because you gave up.
Gave up on, our touch.
Gave up on, our smiles.
Gave up on, our laughter.
Gave up on me.

Me!

Your wife!

Bound by Divinity

A myriad verse upon love there be
And this is one in an endeavor
To be written more
And forever free

For in intimate moments
My mind wonders to compare
Those things which are 
Like myself without you, unsure
That I might not be

Then, I hold you near
And imagine
If, a flower could
A bee without

Or a seashore would
Devoid of gull 
Or crashing waves about

A dawn in mourning 
When clouds of grayer loom
Deprived of sun

Or even cityscapes 
Upon the night
Deep within the blackouts
In hinder sight, of absent moons

What if rainbows 
In transparency 
Where disappearing
Becoming sights unseen

And waterfalls falling
Plunging into silence
If thunder claimed its independence
Setting the lightening alone and free

Upon a realization
I’m captured
In a tangle of overwhelming
Tendencies

When your warmth 
And beating heart
Back to you
In love, they seize upon me

A peace 
A knowing
For this life at least
You and I will be

As one 
Within our sacred oath
Of man and wife
Held together 
More and more each day
By divinity

Breathe

She has her way with me 
Genuinely and undeniably
takes in my carbon dioxide
breathing new life in me
Closer than a kiss
  that's been missed 
Spell breaking, Soul shaking
forever binding and 
  slightly bending
    moving me
inexplicably
Symbolizing symbiosis
When she goes left
I search for right
When she does wrong
I hold her by my side
Dismayed. Unashamed
I've had a part to play
Even through change
 we remain 
She and her way with me,
together indivisibly
Definitely, her encounter
has defined all of me
Breathe with me
as I inhale you
giving life
 fresh and

Betrayal

 YOU have left a knife in her heart with your deceits.
 YOU have wrenched the love she once had.
 The beautiful picture of a happy family have now been TARNISHED with your infidelity.

 Your kisses are meaningless and when you caress her, she could  not care less.
 You have stained a part of her that can never return to who SHE once was.

  Lies, deceptions, secret affairs-----these venom have desecrated the "sacred walls"
                            Of a home of bliss, love and cheer. 

 YOU have wrenched the love she once had
 YOU have left a stain, a stain that no potent substance can remove.
 Oh dear, you have left a stain with your secret affairs!

Letting Go

In 2008, he show his face 
and I did not recognize it.
All of a sudden, you got so angry, 
causing a fight. 
Now you know that was not right. 
Do you think saying sorry is 
suppose to make it better? 
What did I do wrong?
 
It is hard to stop thinking, 
did I deserve this, he said, “I do”.
I felt this way a long time trying 
to wrap it around my mind.
Then Jesus said it was not me.
Satan was so busy disrupting
the good in him he took it out on me.
 
Letting go the affects of the fight with you 
is not a place for me to be. 
I am leaving you to heal so,
I can be free to get to know me.
So when the next man comes into my life
there will be no baggage of strife.
No feelings of defeat before it begins,
because that is, not how want it to end. 

You know, this will never ever happen to me again. 
Lord, knows I do not want to commit a Sin.
He will give me the strength to deal with
Whoever, comes my way. 
I will wait patiently for that day.
Now, I am letting go of the hurt 
to be free and again be me.

GETTING OLDER


When 
I listen to you, my love,
Complaining that older each day you get
And
That your beauty is rapidly fading away, 
I look at you with awe 

For
 
It is only then that I realize, how much  
More rewarding,
Beauty has become to you 
With
The passing of time!

Who turns off this world


 Honey! 
Who turns off this world? 
And makes my destiny between your hands
If you are a part of my dreams
I will never dream
You are all dreams
These are my heart windows
Are opened for scepter
Are opened for love and dreams 
And the dreams are crying every year
Oh. the virgin! 
How the dreams cry? 
How the foam of the sea and shy sands cry? 
And the gulls are immigrating every year
Are your eyes similar to lilies? 
Who turns off the world? 
And plants a candle over rainbow
To live in a world of illusion
Faraway from the purple?

My Angel...

Roll now the mirrored tears 
Leaving behind a satchel of broken plates
No more leather straps to burden this heart
Memoirs and blades are but fading shadows
The rosary hand has given unto me
These Irish eyes in shades of the truest blue
Oh the comfort and warmth
The summer sand on the coast of a brilliant sea
Something a contrary child could not fathom
Though he wants it so
Something that will make me more,
Than any dream in the cold, cold night
My history has begun, my love proven
This millstone angel has given me her wings
And my valentines finally have flavor
To her I hand my heart,
Without fear for she has rescued me from the ghosts
Rose petals in the breeze
An ocean moon
In my arms,
My angel…

*Given to my fiancee on Valentine's Day, 2009

Heaven's Calling

After all the moisture
has evaporated from your body
and returned as precipitation
After love made in the rain
and quiet storm has been played
When desire loses its yearn
when passion transforms
into a vehicle that takes
us through the years
Commitment replaces
our faith, and our fears
come to terms with living
without one another
When we finally come to rest
and the next dimension is
ushered  in, you'll be 
reigning over me.
An atmospheric process
with heavenly properties.
Rain  on  me
Completely rearrange
and restack me.
Take me apart like Legos.
Scatter me all over the floor
Rebuild me with
 Guinness record
   determination.
Make me your toy
Play with my anticipation
and energize my heat
let me be a part of
your ninety-eight degrees
Drench me completely
Yes, Indeed, overtake me.
Revitalize so this feeling
moves through us like
seismic activity against 
Lego   mansions 
Obliterated and recreated
Your motion has me going places
Next dimension beckons
while being a witness for your body
Reign over me with 
an evangelical quality
Let me be your 
  Heaven's Calling

Naked in the Sand

We walked along lakeside today
Hand in hand, barefoot in sand
Unfortunately, I had to unfold
My hands to pick up a shell
It was so beautiful, dear
I wish you were there

We played a game of catch today
Kicking up the sand all along
Loping, giggling, splashing
But I fell down on my rear
Too much laughing, dear
I wish you were near

And then in the cove, made love
Just you and I as one my lover
Nature engulfed our bodies
In pure heavenly delight
Perfect rapture, dear
Oh how I yearned

We made a small fire in the pit
Just as the sun began to sleep
We sat there all cuddled up
And reveled in the beauty
It was marvelous, dear
I missed you terribly

We fell asleep on bed of sand
Warmed with gentle breeze
Morning then softly arose
Caressing us with day
A superb morn, dear
Naked, in the sand

In Love

Every time we’re out
You ask me “What color should I buy or wear?”
Even when you know
It’s red, red, red I always say

You walk me up and down the mall
Love to dress me up in Gap
And Old Navy things

And on those days together 
I’ll ask you back 
“Did I tell you I love you, today?”
Even if I have 
 You’ll flirt and “NO” you’ll say 

So, in tradition of…
The love game we play
I reply…
“Honey, guess what? I love you today”

Our lives, we’re so in love
But, plagued and driven by work
So, I tend to want to look ahead
Far off into the eternities

This is where…
 I hope to look back
And see that I took
Every opportunity
To hold you, by the hand
And in my arms

Even, if…
It’s just watching TV or movie
Or even more, sharing in…
Some body language poetry

And forever keep our promise
That wherever we are
We’ll always end our days
Together with a prayer

And I’m still on the road
After all these years
Four days away from home
Is still hurting me

To know we’re 
A thousand miles 
Never near

"I miss you, baby"

The Farmer

The day starts with a coffee simmering hot
cold breeze entering his mind, waking his soul
dressed in ready put on his hat,
his mind, heart and soul are packed
ready to go on the fields of life.

Starts to work as the aurora shines
work on the field to sprout the seeds
to harvest in time for the food they eat.

Never complained, works 'till the sun  is up
the old man break, ate his lunch
prepared by wife so loving and kind.
Minutes later stood up and work again
toil  the soil, 'till ready to plant
sow the seeds and do some crops.
Find some vegetables for his wife to cook
some fruits to bring  for his children's joy.

Never complains work 'till dark
for the heavy load he have got, smile still on
the face of tired and pity old.

The Bride On The Wait List

The Bride on the wait List
Break gentle heart break
That I cannot withstand anymore
Shaking as same as an earth quake
As slow as a snail wakes and calls them whore
Here-in shoulders hands like a perfectionist

To leave and watch her sob
Wanders as blind as a bat
Attending to nowhere step by step
Thinking they call her slut
Runs down step and stumble on an out sleep
Finds time to persevere like in the book of job

And meets her best groom

Bon Voyage

tattered, yellow napkin
softly settles into the murky lake
as it absorbs it's last spill
our names in gold, still legible

this ring, never fit, seldom worn
"I love you" etched innermost
I know you do, I just couldn't say it much
now I can, but you don't hear

it's cold out, especially on the water
our favorite time, autumn's change upon us
our old craft, tattered sail I told you I'd fix
before your birthday that never came

now why bother, It's the final voyage
a muted splash as the ring follows
and I sit, shivering silently in the blue dusk
the cold urn between my knees

now raised, and poured
a cloud of dust, your earthly remnants
ashes to ashes to water to earth
our dreams unlived, dissolved like you

in the muddy waters we once loved
nothing left for me: no us, no time
I follow your lead, but not softly, not muted
a last gulp and it's really not bad

Sinking, thinking, wishing
watching our boat bobbing beneath
silence is screaming, I gasp
I'm warmed as I see your smile.

woman's rant on a hot summer day

just because you see me walking down 'ho boulevard does not mean i'm for sale...
i don't have an advertising sign up inviting you to taste and see
a woman can't walk down the street in broad daylight
dressed in a baggy t-shirt and sweats 
rockin' an afro puff on a hot summer day
without being propositioned
in violation of my rights as a woman to be free from sexual harassment
and I’m mad about it
my “NO” to your obnoxious offer is real talk
and you should know the difference between what’s for sale
and what’s not on the auction block
so g’long
an' lef’ muh tuh walk in peace
makes a woman want to carry a concealed weapon
and go blasting
could never walk the hallways
play in the yard
or even pray
without somebody bothering me
pulling on my clothes
or grabbing at me
for some sick reason
the next one is going to get a surprise
so g’long
an' lef’ muh tuh walk in peace

~in honor of the women who have walked ahead of me...

WHY I AM ME

                    WHY I AM ME?

      I am me because a change in personality 
would cause a disturbance.
      I am me to conquer the universe.
The world is in turmoil 
      but happiness is for us to ignite.
I did not choose a simple life.

     The creatures of the earth are not at all salient.
The noise that forms states violence.
     We are not those creatures.
We are people individually set and expressive.
     We live as a brittle branch ready to break in the storm.
Never do we fail to overcome when life 
     before us touches our arms with a rub.

Walk up right not on all fours.
      Your back is strong.
You know the world can be cruel.
      Don’t deny that times are hard.
Know with a rightful mind 
      you will be justly rewarded.

Why am I ME?
      Because I refuse to be you…
I am not stating that similarity cannot exist.
      I am just ME in any relationship 
even when I lack what you have.

      In all said, I am 
integrity and self-esteem.
      Let us embrace 
as women in solidarity.

      The creatures of earth 
are not at all silent.

That's Where The Lord Lives

I walk outside to see all that I can see.
Over there is our house, our home,
In the distance, you can see.
And that place of hallowed happiness
Forever has been our home
And forever will be so evermore.
That house is small but raised us tall,
From the perfect parents who loved us so
To the perfect sister for which every man would want.
The house built us all up strong.
More than a mere building,
It is a place to love and be loved,
A place that hands you hope that you give right back, 
And a place of everlasting faith.
This home is where my parents taught me about God
And opened me up to Jesus.
They opened the eyes of the blind for all to see,
And the blind included me.
They taught me to be the best I can be;
The best things in life are free.
They have taught us so well,
And they all have saved my soul.
Even if I am not there now,
I carry Him with me.
I carry them with me.
I carry Their values and Their teachings with me.
In this house, this home,
We reside.
We cannot forget this.
This is where my Mother lives.
This is where my Father lives.
This is where my Sister lives.
This is where We live,
In this loving, caring, beautiful home
They made just for us.
We cannot forget this either.
This is where it all began. 
This is where the hunger and thirst was created;
This is where we are fulfilled.
We cannot, we must not forget this:
This is where God lives.
This is where Jesus lives.
This is where The Lord lives;
The Father and The Almighty.
This is where We live;
This is where We reside.
We must not forget this.
We must not forget this:
What a beautiful and perfect life this is.

The Enlightenment of Loss

Last week my wife and I had to put 
our Lab Chow mix down. For thirteen 
years he was our friend and loyal companion.
As they injected the drug my wife comforted 
him and told him that it would be ok to just
go to sleep. The thought of the scene she
described overwhelmed me and I started
to weep for the pain was deep with-in.
My wife came home to comfort me for she 
is much stronger than I when it comes to loss,
then we comforted each other for we are one
in the eyes of God.
I started to reflect on the sacrifice that God 
made by sending his Son to bear the pain
and burden of our sin. The strength and self
sacrifice, love and compassion of that single
act is so amazing that it overwhelmed me and
the tears of revelation softened my soul.
In that revelation I gained the knowledge
that sacrifice and loss is what opens the 
doorway that leads to compassion.
We miss our dear friend but do believe he 
now lives in a place free of all the pain
and suffering.
We do believe that anything created by God
that shares so much of the heart will no doubt
live forever in our soul making him a part of our 
spiritual existence and a example of the words 
love, companion and friend.

We love you Rebel.

Suspension of Disbelief

My hand on your shoulder;
Your hand on my waist.
We shuffle across the ballroom.
The other dancers swoon by us--
Elegant and graceful
Perfect and in sync.

We struggle to keep some sense of rhythm between us
But I'm two steps ahead of the tune
While you drag your feet.
There is nothing here but we pretend
For the sake of our parents
And for the sake of our children.

But most of all we pretend for our own sake
Because I'm too scared to see the truth.
You'd rather prowl the streets for teenagers
And have me die alone with the cats.
I don't know what I want.
But, when has that ever mattered?

Her First Try

She is a fine cook 
It didn't come by chance
She was trained by her family
She practiced day and night

She had to learn to cook
For many in her life
Her husband was particular
And she was a dutiful wife

She told us all a story 
Early in martial bliss
She made a beautiful cake
Spent hours creating it

She waited in anticipation
To feed her only man
A chocolate spearmint cake
She thought would be grand

Her husband was so excited 
To dare take a bite
She looked at him with hope
That it was a delight

Instead his look was sour
His eyes closed tight
He said this cake tastes lousy
Not another bite

You are you, I am me

You are you, I am me
I wonder If I am seen
I hear Life passing into the night, 
like a river passes into the sea

I see That certain cats think,
iam a lying fake that only think of me.
I want To Erase and forget 
what you said to me today.
You are you, I am me.

I pretend That im happy,
 when I'm really not okay.
I feel Lost and shipwrecked, 
 love is far away.
I touch You awkwardly.
I worry If i will be good enough today.
I cry Because you dont believe a word I say.
You are you, I am me.

I understand I dont think of you,
my word always come out carelessly
I say How did things become this way?
I dream That i will awaken from this reality.
I try, And you lash out unexpectedly
I hope To find a way out of this insanity
You are you, and I am  me.

Fresh Paint

The smell of fresh paint lingers
in my nose, in the air.
Crisp sheets lay smooth,
untouched with 
hospital corners.
I dreamed of holding you
in our bed.
A king size bed is too big for one.
Wedding gifts are strewn across
our dining room table.
I dreamed of eating together there
as man and wife,
candlelit dinners,
and meals with laughing children...
dreams that will never come true.
A family room quietly sits alone
without a family.
A yard waits outside for a garden
that will never be planted.
Nothing is as it seems.
Only my flowing tears are real tonight.
A new home, a new marriage...
but my other half is only here
in spirit.
Only one returned from 
our honeymoon...
I wish it was me who died that dark night.
The doctors said nothing could be done...
A silent killer stole you from sleep and from me
while I slept next to you...
nothing could be done,
a beginning and an end.
Life changes in a moment.
Now, our dream home is for sale.
The dream is gone.
I cannot bring myself to sleep in our bed,
so I make up the couch tonight...again.
My heart calls out for you.
My arms reach out for you.
I taste your lips on mine.
I smell you, see you, hear your voice
whispering my name.
Your touch lingers with 
the smell of fresh paint.

Mother's Day

Many a moon ago you said I do
and shortly there after we became parents
it is quite clear
there was never any other
for to me you are the perfect mother

on this day of praise
I raise you up
above the rest
for in my eyes your'e the best

Evil Personified - 3

There is no beating in this hollow, heinous Heart
Eternal empty eyes emitting, inexcusable iniquities
Jutting juxtaposed jackal jaws, tearing Love apart
Anathematize abandoned, always forgive Atrocities
This is how I live, how I grow, how I stay in control

Eternal empty eyes  emitting, inexcusable iniquities
Where are you Love?, I Long for YOU, with LOVE so TRUE
I gaze into the Eyes of LOVE; I see the Darkness of Death
Yet my Heart can not Shed a Tear,  For Eons of FOREVER
I Will ALWAYS and FOREVER, LOVE YOU, LENORE

I gaze into the Eyes of LOVE; I see the Darkness of Death
Jutting juxtaposed jackal jaws: Tearing LOVE Apart
Shredding the Heart, ripping away My LOVE : and my Breath
The Tears are Running Down my cheeks, for Hell’s dark Road I depart
My Eyes burn, covered with the Billows of the Smoke from Hell


                                 To be Continued

Inspired by TPS’ blog “Integrity“; this is the Liege you do not see
          Dedicated to those who do not believe, like me

Waiting

Friday leaps through the window
curtains swing to the swish of the sea.

Spirit sparkling, dizzy for your return
I wait for your call, scanning the dawn.

Church bells chime down the hillside,
the village stirs under a honeysuckle sky.

A lemon field sleeps beneath the mountains,
plum purple with wild scented heather.

Life peeps from geranium doorways
as the blush of our weekend beckons.

Love burns red as a mid-summer rose
until Sunday sobs through the window.

And we yearn for Friday to leap again.

Burning Embers

After being together for a time of great length
I have no idea how I put up with you, or where I get the strength
You make me so furious, just so mad!
Why do I put myself through this, if I just end up being sad?
I get a reminder every morning when I turn to your side of the bed.
The passion our love used to have, a fire burning such a deep red.
Years pass and the fire dies down
I look at you and your once glowing smile, turned into a frown. 
What’s changing I really don’t know
Sometimes wondering if it was all a show…
But in the morning, breath stinky and hair a mess
I look at you and know I’m blessed. 
Because behind those eyes I see a spark
Memories of making out in the park
The only time we’d cry
is when we had to say good-bye. 
I see something that’s keeping us alive
During the screaming shouts there is something in our hearts we are trying to revive
We’re trying to rekindle the burning embers
When all of the sudden, not just our minds, but our hearts remember
We lean in for a passionate kiss
And all of the sudden, remember the feeling of bliss.
And who knew that was the fuel we needed,
A blissful kiss our hearts and lips have so deeply missed
To rekindle our fire
To rekindle our passion
To rekindle our faith and trust we had in each other.

2012

I dedicate my 2012 to the one I love most...

Ouch! I shake my hand and stare at the door knob in disbelief. 
I open the front door and wince as the scorching late morning sun burns my face. I close my eyes and think back to when I was kid, standing too close to the BBQ as Dad lit it...BIG mistake. 
   I close the door behind me and trip over my towel that had fallen in my chaotic response to the hot mid June weather. 
Confident from my recent gym ambition, I let my towel fall off my shoulder and reveal my newly sculpted body to the world as I casually approach the giant pool gate. 
I swing open the gate and walk in...that's when it hit me...SHE hit me. 
Laying on her beautifully toned tummy...I am a sucker for a woman's stomach; sensual, smooth, so full of subtle detail, the holder of life.
   I shake my head and snap back to reality in time to catch myself from nearly falling over. I lean down quickly and pick up my jaw from the ground in hopes she didn't notice. 
Her cardinal red hair up in a bun, or pony tail...I guess wildly as men do.
I walk by as stable as I can... "don't stare, don't stare, don't stare," I whisper to myself. 

THUMP-THUMP!, THUMP-THUMP! THUMP-THUMP!

   My heart beats so intense I can feel it pulsating through my temples.
I reach the lawn chairs and settle down 20ft from her. Directly diagonal to her right shoulder...her wonderfully shaped, perfectly curved shoulders.
I tell myself to look away but cannot help. 
An intense magnetic force pulls my attention to her, I try with all my being to fight it but cannot advert my eyes. I yell at my brain to drop curtains on my eyes but no response. Giving into her dream-like curved body, the sweet gently sweeping motion from the back of her neck to her luscious, tanned cheeked backside. Her legs are incredible. I continue my stare. A non perverted stare of course. I'm taken back to college art classes. The overwhelming amounts of anatomy classes and sketches...
Never had I seen such flawlessness. 
   Who was this girl laying by my pool? The most incredibly indescribable woman I have seen and yet, I had only seen half!

Just as if I was narrating aloud this profound experience, she turned over and rolled onto her back. 

Dying the darkest, ugliest death, then awaking to ALL of Heaven's golden warmth doesn't compare to when I looked into her blue-green eyes. 
Frozen in that moment in time, I had without a doubt, found the woman I knew I was to spend the rest of my life with.

Wolf House in Ruins-for Jack London

We came to your home
Jack
Hidden amongst bosom 
hills and armies of trees 
past the State gates 
who finally admitted 
us entry to your tomb
they keep you here 
Jack 
in memory, first editions 
your wife spent years 
here alone, your phantom 
haunting the halls 
the woods
her memory 
she built this place
like the Egyptians of old 
dragging each mental stone 
one 
       upon
                the other 
cranium slave labor 
of awe 
    fear
     love 
a physical testament 
to your published 
achievements and 
emotional fingerprint 
you left your mark
everywhere
Jack
Hawaii where you 
danced the headhunter 
dance of primitive times 
donned your outfit 
and howled to the 
new moon of inspiration 
Jack 
you and wife traveled 
the oceans just like
your novels 
your life ebbing and 
alive 
still 
in these pages of 
Calling and White 
you observed life 
and the universe 
and without hesitation 
you recorded it for us
Christopher Columbus 
Sir Francis Drake 
of reality fiction 

But reality has a way 
of finding even the 
largest child as we 
hide from it or
ignore it before its 
to late 
it found you after 
your Wolf House burned 
and the booze burned 
you for far too long 
you slept the final 
sleep 
on the porch of 
inspiration 
like a babe you returned 
now we see the 
ruins of the Wolf House 
and your grave 
your ashes 
beneath the stone 
next to your wife 
across from the two 
children's markers 
the birds crying as 
we all do for you

The Saltmarsh

Dark Clouds are gathering over the sea,
and shadows now race across the mudflats.
What use to me now is fitful moonlight
I pray to the gods, for I am in fear
What the sand seizes, it never lets go
Oh Matrones I need to see my way

Sea birds call,
Calling from the marshes.
But are they birds or maybe sprites?
I am the father of the chosen child



This is our holy place.
As it was for those who came before.
A threshold betwixt both Sky and Land
Liminal
A threshold between the land and sea.
And between life and death.
This is our sacred place

I am the father of the chosen child
She has eaten the mistletoe

Here we built our Henge
To worship those we must.
Who knows what they who came before did worship.
And from the Henge we built our crossing place,
A causeway along the lines of power.

Dark Clouds have gathered o’er the sea,
and  shadows race across the mud.
What the sand seizes, it never lets go
I pray to the gods, I am in fear
I can hear their priestly chanting
‘Oh great God Taranis,
We offer this life to you’
With one sharp cry
She gives her life
So that the world will carry on

This does not help my pain
I have lost my first borne
Oh Great earth mother, wife to Taranis
Take my child and bless her and save her soul






Something in us fears what’s buried,
What we cannot see.
But we honour this the winter solstice,
With sacrifice.
To Taranis sky king
To Esus earth king
To Matrones wife to both
In the centre of the Henge,
The holy of holies,
The chosen Child.
This blessed child
The saviour of our world
Through her the cycle will renew
Dance round her grave
Widdershins
Lift our voices
In joyful song

Great Gods the clouds have lifted
The new day has dawned
Her sacrifice was not in vain

Comfort

When I first met you I couldn’t leave you,
not even in my thoughts.
Nothing has changed.  You are still there.

Without you I was nothing.
With you, everything.
You made me.
 
If I wakened in the night, regardless of reason, 
I reached for you. Like a child in need of nurturing, 
the sight of you gave me comfort.
 
I recall combat in the sands of Desert Storm.
There you were, in my heart and mind.
Still, you gave me comfort.
 
I see you in our children. 
How they look and act. How they live their lives.
They are one with you as you are one with me.
 
We grew old together.
That was a blessing. Life was wonderful,
but only because I had you.
 
In the hospital when I was gravelly ill -
there you were, by my bedside.
You were the cure that I needed.
 
God made me say good-bye.
It hurts. I still cry.  
Yet, even in death you give me comfort.

Battery man

He walked right into the coal mine
And he made sure you got the money
Obeyed your words
You did nothing

But you stayed back at your place
You pulled out the remote
Pressed the green button
A GPS showed the way
The battery man had smile on his face

He out played the danger
You let your wife get the better
Then there was confusion
A knock in the door
A rifle and a stranger

The next you heard
A silent siren of the ambulance
A guy blowing in your mouth
A coldness running through your head
You had soar hand with frozen blood

You woke up some days later
Grabbed a news paper
It was 4 days before
Then you knew you were robbed
You let your wife get the better

heard

 Sounds to me I'm deaf
Cant hear the murmur any more

 A thousand sounds a day I know
Only I can not hear it if they show

 The gaining of quiet stance
Bitter sweet the silence

 I could just not hear you anymore
I understand you sounds to my core

 Found myself straining to listen
Only to hear a blank shot angrily hasten

 When we come to sound out loud 
This is when I can face this crowd 

 Till then---

Sounds to me I'm deaf
Cant hear the murmur any more

A matchbox in the rain

Unprotected piece of a house
exposed to fierce drops of water
prone to melt away in mud
like a music box in a matchbox,
unbelievable and unnecessary
and yet there,
a dwelling of husband and wife
to nest and breed
their young
willing to go away
and build their own music matchboxes,
stronger and safer
yet still
exposed to the ruthless transparency
of falling water.

Abyss

When I needed you the most - you disappeared.......crawling into the vast belly of this dark, cruel, prosperous world.....leaving me alone to face the darkness and despair, forcing me to find my own light, while you wallowed in your own defeat and misery. But yet I survived, and thrived and surmised it was coming. You will always be a coward who walks the path of convenience and suffers silently for choices you regret. Forever regret, serving yourself a vicious serving of self-loathing daily. One day the darkness will succumb to the light, and the beams will shine upon your old, weak and weary face – but I won’t be there to share the warmth, nor will I celebrate the birth, I will remain distant and far………forever remembering your abandonment…..and forever will I not look your way; this stranger who now surfaced from the darkness, only to find himself sinking back into his dark abyss of loneliness and lost dreams.

Dead silence

pictures available
we have phones
we have drink
we have all
and we try to keep us alive
because in fact we need a good woman.
and when we get home at night
turn on the light and we have no idea if something may happens too
wherever she may be
our eyes have that color
as can be love in the middle
and no
we are not so ignorant

I WILL MARRY YOU

Baby, when u left in 1982
My heart felt empty and few
I searched far and deep
I lack good manner of sleep

When I did find you
I felt joy’s Triumphant to be next to you
But the time was not due
For you were involved, not true?
I bowed my head and flew

Never giving up on my love for you
My heart felt-faith was always new
We met sporadically during the years
I relate and showed you all my cares

But yet the time was not right 
With the divine bringing together of our being
But you finally and humbly accept my feelings
And asked me to marry you…

My love for you baby is eternal and true
Baby, yes, I will marry you.

Pathway To Paradise

__________________________________________________________

There’s a pathway to Paradise- I’d like you to come along
 What lies before us is a beautiful, pastoral forest
 where our souls reunite finding refuge in one another’s arms 

In the twilight of our years new love will embrace us 
with the unspoiled woven tapestries of our souls
Entwined with renewed senses of wonder and veneration 

We'll bathe under the silvery incandescent glow of the evening moon 
while the symphony of the breeze plays its quiet melodies 
throughout the graceful willowy forest of trees 

            Sheltering our tears
            Relieving our fears 

Breathing in the enchanting unspoken solilguies of our hearts 
that tenderly whisper -Once more my love...
             Once more

Your Boundless Love


I am sorry

If only those words can easily heal the pain,
If only those words can make your smile comes back.
If only those words can turn back time,
I would say it a hundred million times.

But the pain caused by betrayal are far long to gone
too long if you've betrayed not only once but twice.
Say what should be done to subside the aches,
Oh if only I could turn back time.

You, the one who saves me from cruel reality.
You, the one who accepts my imperfections.
You, the one who understands me more than anybody else.
You, the one that I betrayed.

But just before I have fallen, you catch me,
You still stay by my side
You still hold me in your arms
You still love me and keep in your heart.

Why do you care that much?
Why do you love me that much?
The answers I couldn't find,
I couldn't see it in myself.

You are my best friend.
You are my lover.
You are the blessings in my life
I couldn't ask for more.

Thank you my Love.

Adoption Day

Today is so very special
the day you were chosen
the cutest smile
and most vibrant halo
you were brighest of the cherubs
and once again we celebrate 
the day your path was laid
that lead you to my door step
and conquered my heart

 So I say have a very special
Adoption Day
be cheerful and proud
for this day means as much to me as it does to you.

Nine Meters to Centimeters:Evolution of Sari

The sun sets while the loyal footsteps
of a shadow enveloped in a drape of rudhira
walks down from one corner of the house to another
in obedience. Multiple jobs and multiple voices call
out her name every second, asking for a lifelong performance.

Happiness in the smiles of others, the belief
that is carried; ingratitude is ignored.
Selling pieces of herself for
their sake, vaulting the tears in a closet and wishing
for the dawn to come sooner.

The image of her likeness stands up,
and cuts the cramp of her sheets of toil,
metamorphosing it into a modern art,
walking down the streets under the
sun of liberation.

Easing My Country Mind

Remembering you still here
Pulling off my boots
Like you used to
Smiling at your memory

Blonde wild streaming hair
Piercing blue lovely eyes
Looking down at me
From stallion lofty perch

You were my hero
So strong yet delicate
Holding me so tight
Thought you'd never go

Least not before me
Still knowing you're waiting
Never lost my wonder
Eternity met with you

The Perfect Woman

I‘ll never find a perfect woman,
Than the one I have.
Tranquil my heart all moments,
Pompous me real then and next!
Kind, patient and supportive,
Strong, courageous and classy,
I paid a little dowries to have her.
Two male goats and a drum of brew
She never akin to that lone,
But wasn't Lucas’ ever!
For the clan and family sought,
As appreciation for perfect woman!

Do you care

On the high way
My side mirror recalls
The object that appear
Are closer then 
They seem to be…
Yet so close we are
Taking destiny for ride
Many are a head and 
Many behind, on road
Wondering in this city.
Tales of 1000 souls
I am one of them with little
Blessing to share. 
My believe, My Prayers 
To Lord, is driven by Job
My Visa, my rent, my bills
Run in the veins of my day.
Morning, I do open my eyes 
Only to report to job, 
My wife, my children and my God
Await my return by night.
I recall not, what I did last night
When I slept, what my wife said,
Not even my child’s smile
Yet my 9 to 5 schedule is perfect
Morning open with coffee on gas stations
Traffic on highways, on city road
Fines and radars, mobiles and overspend
Frustrated yet have to drive a head
Slow in fast lane with mobile on ear
Or lady, prejudice it may seem
But I recall it in my car, another
Guy flying in his accord, reads a sign
“just cruising”, damn with smile.
Switching between channels, 
Some jams, some songs to hear
Discussion VoiceBoards, interviews
Money minutes, gold rates
Some blast, some peace deals
What a way, to say Good morning.
Yet hope I am not fired today, 
As the morning news did say recession 
Job cuts and job losses, long leave
Companies disappearing, stocks diving
Face book blocked in offices
Looks a gloomy day.
Yet hope drives my day, a head
Beyond my reach some time
I finish my job, drive home,
Just a pleasant look on my child
A warm welcome from my wife
Makes me human from machine.
Taking deep breath of relieve 
I thank God, for all His mercy
And pray for Goodness tomorrow
And wish for all those left jobless
Lay in the arms of  beloved
I dream, with hope for better
Tomorrow.

Writer's Paranoia- 3

I wipe the sweat from my brow
waiting
   hoping
      praying.
I made my submission four weeks passed,
it took even longer to write my piece, 
3 months to be exact.
As I stare at the blank screen,
the paranoia sets in and I think to myself
The publishing company will know it was me,
they will know the acts created were of my own.
I did not mean to murder her, my wife.
It was her laziness that finally set me off.
I just asked her to iron my shirt, 
she couldn't even do that right.
At first I thought that the iron had slipped,
it was then that I realized, as the moments passed,
that my hand was wrapped around the iron,
gripped tight.
From then on, after this sudden realization,
I figured it wasn't so bad after all,
at least I had something to write about for my next piece.
So now I sit, here, staring at the blank screen
as the paranoia sets in.

More Than A Handshake

 It's more than a handshake, 

 a firm grip up and down. 

 Not a simple act to be passed around. 

 More than a greeting, 

 agreement proclamation, 

 or declaration of peace, 

 though it may entail these three. 

 (I'll spare many details, keep it family friendly). 

 It's more than puzzle pieces interlocking. 

 It's living people, not objects rocking. 

 It's a private act between the sheets 

 where two flesh's mesh 

 with fervent wet heat. 

 Two bodies passionately collide, 

 and create a safe haven to abide. 

 It's a deep pleasure for one pair forever. 

 A sacred bond none should sever.

fate

when fate decides to bring you love
cherish every minute

hold it close to your heart
let it consume your body, mind, and soul

everyday of your married life
look each other in the face

tell them how much you love them,
desire them,

 stay connected to them,
but don't over crowd them

for fate has brought you together

Feelings

Between these words and this paper lie my feelings
They hold the connection together, no piercings
So abstract I just want to get lost in them
I think I have found a reason not to analyse them
They are multiplying inside, creating families within me
They all have the same vision; to one day make their way out of me
Their seeds are planted in me as a contigency plan to ensure constant 
reproduction
They remain on standby for her name to be called
Her beauty speaks a language only understood by them, no subtitles
I speak on their behalf, no rank given to me, basically no titles
To their distinguished calculations i'm not fighting back
I lay words on this paper that gives it life, can't read them from the back
I say, write and do whatever is asked of me and in some twisted way I 
approve of it
The new and the old feelings have combined forces, breaking through 
sometimes hearing myself saying.........

"Her lips give authorisation for my imagination to work overtiime
Her beauty is painted all over my art gallery for the world to see
Once I have a look at those eyes I can never seem to find my way back to me
Her exquisite taste in everything got me wishing it could rub off on me
Yes, though i'm crazy about her, i'm not nuts
She deserves a yearly supply of cashew nuts
Although she prefers everything sour, I think she's absolutely sweet
Shhhhhhhh, an underground comedian, absolutely hilarious
Her laugh is amazing, her scientifically proven way of displaying excitement"

I need a special task team to keep these feelings under control
A negotiator to evaluate the terms and conditions keeping it under control
But then again where would I be without these feelings.

She Knows Me

Tall trees and winter’s dismay
Empty hearts and cattle calls
Trusting no one save you and 
Scattered love on forgotten walls

I love the way her lips
Curl when she tells a lie
A secret agreement between lovers
I promise and she cries

I think I do

I know she does

Killer’s eyes greet the morning
Lusty moans and sweaty brows
The thin line threatens to break
It’s far too late now

Rapture unforgiving as the night
Jumbled in a mixture of cement and love
The city is unforgiving
Love is as lust does

I know it now

But dare not speak

This is bigger than me
Cataclysms and tumbling virtue
A heartless fool I would be
If this lie is true
She has me now
What can I do?

Grief

You are hell bound,
Your sounds resound,
A faint echo of my own shadowing reflection.

I grasp a mug from behind the door,
And yet its remains shatter among the tiles,
Glittering like eyes upon the floor.

I know your there to feel,
A knowing familiar smell,
And yet to physically touch you,
My tips can’t seem to dwell.

The mirrors to your past have ceased,
I cannot stare at them as well,
It is enough to see your face,
Each time you set your fearsome spell.

They said you'd left me,
Flashing lights the uniform informing,
And yet how little you have left,
Your time is still yet dawning.

So hold me tight,
Remove the remaining light that flickers in my limbs,
For if I am to be haunted,
I’ll be mourned in church by hymns.

Like it's given to be

How do the girls talk, of boys in the bushes and stones in their pockets
How do the boys stalk, to thinking that girls are dreaming of nothing but lockets,
for keeping inescapable kisses trapped in a hope

And why do the ladies say, that helpless are husbands when wells run dry
And why do the men cry, though tough as the night, when the daylight dims the eye
	till work is rest and boredom besets…

Like it's given to be
Just a fall, just blood blotting from a scrape on the knee
So watch it go brown
And watch it go down
To rise like a star, a little forgotten scar in the memory

I heard the lonely yell, "I once was quiet, and I had a truth, but nothing means nothing when something breaks in the laugh!"
You can't change in the traffic lights, you can't change a tune or even a melody
without breaking a song
So I'll get it wrong and she'll see me naked as naked can be
Lit by the sun in the contempt of modern antiquities

Like it's given to be
Just a fall, just blood blotting from a scrape on the knee
So watch it go brown
And watch it go down
To rise like a star, a little forgotten scar in the memory

Now how would you say, dappled in ideas
That ruins aren't buried under buildings so tall
And now how would you say, given the seas
You can't wash the sin from the salt in your mouth, you call...

"That's it's given to be for you and not me, to rise like a star, with little forgotten scars in your memory."

My Love Bendeth Near

My love says I shall not beguile you with my tongue, but rather with my soul. “Go, do not be a prisoner to my heart or fettered by my rose, for I give it freely, having picked it clean from its thorns so it may not prick thy finger. For it be naught thy blood I wish to draw, lest I use it as a balm to soothe thy soul

Accept my flower...for it is given freely to send thoughts of a lover’s song to tug at thy ear. If doors before have sent you wandering... become a dweller at my tree for I am the root, therefore, I become the leaves that shade you from blisters of the sun that rendereth rays too harsh for thy tender skin

Eat not the bread of those with an eye to devour thy soul, but nourish thy self with the drink of my wine given to quench thy throat when you are dry of thirst. For it is a true heart that bendeth close to draw you near to me. Allow my light to shine in thy soul, breathing solace to thy weary heart.

Kate's Bible Add On

And it came to pass that they ate their dinner
and that she did washeth up.
And she did leave the dishes to drain
Whilst she put on the washing machine.
and the man was very pleased.

And it further came to pass
that she gave the man some pudding
and he was more pleased.
And then it came to pass the he fell asleep
By the fire.

And the Lord God,said
who is this man that sleepeth by his fire?
And he said,I shall waken him up
And the man awoke,
And God spake unto him

How is it that the woman laboureth in ye kitchen.
And that thou sleepeth here in an armchair.
and the man said,
but Thou didst order women to labour.
And the Lord God said unto the man
Why dost Thou remember so selectively what I have said?
And the man said,
I knoweth not and therefore I will help this woman.
And the Lord God said,
Why dost thou not think of it thyself?
And the man said in reply,
It was Thou that made me,O God.

And the Lord God was displeased with the man.
so he called down a plague of butterflies
To prevent him from sleeping.
And when the woman came in
she was much pleased to see these butterflies
and so she fell onto the man
And he did make love unto her.
And the cat was very pleased.

For it thrilled him to watch humans mating
and gave him hope
That the Lord God would take his rib and make a mate for him.
And indeed it doth seem to have happened
Judging by all the cats staring in ye old window here
And by their ecstatic yelps
That the Lord God was very generous with them
and made them many mates.
For truly there is no jealousy among them
And they mate freely and happily
and never have rows about the washing up..as they eat straight from the can.Amen

Here endeth thy lesson for today.

Night and Day

I Nephthys
Sister of Isis:
Energy of birth and guidance of growth,
guiding life to live and the people praise her.
Her strength so wide, it's bright, making her smile visible.

I Nephthys
Always her shadow cast by her light;
I am the moon and she is the sun.
The people's adoration strengthens her strife
and their cries and pleas to me, weakens my heart.

I am invisible
Just a watcher of children and a care taker of ages.
My presence not be known, till their time has been interrupted
or their string has been sowed to long.

My sister receives the tears of joy when a child comes to this earth.
I receive the tears of sadness and hate when I cradle their womb away.

I stick to those that mourn for their husband to wars long past
and hover around the withering sick in their beds.

I guide the fearful souls to their penance or grace,
But I may not comfort them to which they'll be placed.

I and my sister
I am the night and she is the day...
And though our works are different,
we are both needed, for we make a circle;
a cycle for this race.

But...
How I wonder of a smiling face.
That plays along the light touched meadows
and frolics on a golden pace.

But I will not see such images, for If I am there,
My work must be in place.

Now In a house, a husband cries,
for his wife is laying ill.
I sit beside her bed and watch her health.
No, her time will be hers still.
I leave this room and then the wife decides to wake,
the husband cries and then he prays:
Thank you Nephthys for letting my love re-awake.
A hug was done, a kiss stayed strong and together they were made.
I watched so long, that I could not help to watch some more and stayed.

Love
Is so wondrous, I thought and a smile had spread on my face.
The night is going and the day is coming, 
and my sister will be taking her watch.
And still smiling to myself, a thought gained my health;
without the night, the day would be lost...

Harmony


Basking in the light of your magnificent love It surrounds me in a fortress of all that you are A heart so pure, its essence so compelling to my own As if God granted us the keys to serenity itself Two souls, touched by fate, longing for love and finding it in each other We are harmony Searching for a place to call home No more

Will You Marry Me

I love the way you look when you are happy;
your teeth glowing in the moonlight, and your
laughter cheering up everything I know.

I love the way you smile;
it is the sweetest thing I have ever seen
under the Sun.

I love the way you look at me;
they have a way of inviting attention
without any speech.

I love the way you hold a child;
it is as though it is your own.

I love the way you shed tears as you watch
a soap opera; I console you with a cuddling
touch, reminding you it's just a play, and reminding
myself that I have a woman who can feel,
at the core of her soul.

I love the way you act when you are mad at me;
pushing me against the wall, and holding my
shirt as though you want to tear it; making me feel
like making love to you.

You are all I want in a wife; everything I prayed for!
Will you marry me?

a poem for a blind wife from her deaf husband

the aim of this poem is very simple

only want to tell you that the clothes
we wore on our wedding were light green, but
the leaves used to wrap the wedding cakes were a darker green.
sure, both are green, but a different green, my dear. 

a flowery headband tuck into your hair
you may feel it but might not know
that the flowers are white jasmines

on my head, nestle a pair of doves, also white.
i always imagined us, that day,
as a pair of trees in the spring.
you were a blossoming tree.
i was a tree where doves nest. 

i saw people came and smile.
they talked while enjoying the food.
but what they were talking about, i could not hear.
care to tell me, dear?

KING SOLOMON'S HOUSE


As the dusk beacons
And the night commingle with the day   
Confusion rented the air 
It was an un-endless arrival of him we await
He it the one, King Solomon

Solomon’s Eve unlock her feelings
She wept and we waited,
For the King of the house who left
His throne to no destination 

This King had little of Solomon’s wisdom
But shared more of his adultery
With his cup of wine always full to a fault
Drunkard was his middle name
All his fellow drunkard Kings
Had no clue of him  
Yet, the night twinkle away

The In-law with the baby in her arms hissed
Two hours went pass the midnight
Still, it was a house full of darkness
His Eve unbolt more of her to me
As she sobs her way to sleep
“He his dead drunk again”
Shall we all sleep, less we loose our night
King Solomon is alive with no live
But drunk in the arms of a concubine” 
Darkness exit, as the cockcrows.

happy birthday to my wife

 Happy birthday to my wife
A ray of sunshine in my life
Another year older, that is alright 
Beacon Hill seems like last night 
It seems our love even grows stronger 
I hope we enjoy it much longer 
So,what is another year
Let's jump and cheer
May your birthday be spent along side me
Maybe go to the mountain and just roam free
I'll be here as long as I can 
It may be a long life span 
Happy birthday have no fear
Look around, I’ll be here
May your day be merry and bright?
Hay; how about we get together tonight
             Happy Birthday

Lickety Split

I love to see you smile
as pleasure plays upon your face.
This sweet embrace, a sticky kiss,
dissolves the self into a bliss
that runs from nose to tippy toes
and back again.

Your fingers pull me closer to
the center of expanding joy,
your strength surprising to this
happy lap dog.

Wagging tails, and wagging tongues,
until at last the chorus of your cries
resounds inside our cozy room. 

Lips, and lips, and lips slide easily
from side to side as, damp and weak,
you bask within the flush and glow.
I love you so.

     devoid of any reason, 
lie an enigma here 
     contained within this poem of Passion.

attempt, you might, you'll never find; 
     eyes alone cannot see.
if all could search inside my heart, 
     if only, then perceive
educated minds alone

In The Repetition Of A Kiss

            In The Repetition Of A Kiss

When I leave the house to follow traffic patterns
Tie and suitcase in my hand
Running through the door to find rush hour
I buy and sell gold bullion for a living 
On the grand piano, the one my wife and I can’t play
I leave a hurried message
“My dear, I’ll be back soon.”  “I love you so.”
“Please have the help clean the piano.”
“The one that you and I can’t play.”
“But if I make it rich, you and I can get some lessons.”
“We’ll play an Oratorio. Opera or an Anthem
Or perhaps a symphony or two one day.”
In between each number we will practice kissing
In the end, if we learn nothing, on this instrument
Our hearts and lips will follow every note in memory
In the repetition of a kiss

I leave you a kiss. 

As always, I will miss you
In the repetition of a kiss

Broken Cookie Valentine


Broken Cookie Valentine
The problems that eye have is just connecting to my sweetheart.
The temporary glitches of the ethernet continue
to make problems go away and they will do so from the start.
Eye am not allowing anyone to bother me so that the memories so 
hard to do and time will not let me continue 
to be so angry at my ewe.
Eye need to have a better time but this is just what happened.
The cookie was in the shape of a valentine the thing was still unbroken 
and then the shape was gone after eye pulled it from 
the pocket of my jacket the thing was done 
but still eye saved it in a pocket to try to eat it later 
when the hunger from my daytime wanting has began 
so take all the interference and stuff it somewhere where
you can keep it because eye will not tolerate it in the 
beginnings of this day. 
There is no need to continue with the bother 
since the bother is not me
the damage does not interfere with the flavor 
or the taste of the cookie that eye like to call 
my Valentine 
and the thing is mostly sugar and my babay's kisses
are the same way so 
Sweet to me and then we have them iff
And then we have them then 
and then we have them again.

How Do I Declare

How do I declare
My depth of love for you 
When language,
Man-made -
Limited by it’s own necessity,
Has not the reach 
To express the endless bounds of infinity?
How can I speak
Of something so immense
That is impossible for the human mind
To comprehend?
How can it be
A heart,
Caged within a mortal chest,
Can hold a love
Greater than all Creation?
This,
My love,
Is my dilemma.
How do I declare a love
Who’s limitlessness still amazes me?

TURN THE HOE INTO A HOME WIFE

She is dancing on top of the pole,
Wearing only a pair of shoes.
Lights are turning on and off,
Owning the eyes of  Evil's crews.


In the corner a man bowed his head.
Enjoying the pleasure of a vodka drinks.
Waiting for the moment to end,
And plead to a woman for an hour of seat.


He is a typical guy from a downtown...
Everyday visits  and watching  her afar.
Never aware of love will grow...
Dreaming that someday he take her home.


But who will treat her like a beautiful flower?
The question hanging on her thoughts.
A broken glass that isn't fixable,
Who has the courage to reborn her soul?


She is a woman,dancing on her shoes.
Lights are turning on and off.
His man is sitting,waiting for his turn.
Praying that  her woman  wear  his ring.

WIFE

and I knew in an instant,

that you were the dream
that would fulfill my life
with love and passion

Miracle Girl

Undistinguished that I am,
My days begin and end in miracles.
Each dawn I rise from beauty's bed;
Each night I fall into her embrace.

She raises me above myself
To make me seek the better man within.
I would be worthy of the love
Of she whose unseen loveliness
Exceeds all graces as mine reside without,
A poor imitation,
However fair they might appear.

Honeymoon

Fresh black satin sheets
soft music dimmed lights
champagne and oysters on ice
Red rose petals scattered upon the the bed
The aroma of chocolate and massage oil fills the air
from the bedside table to nibble and entice.

The sound of gushing water from the bathroom
the fragrance of expensive  French perfume
Black silk stockings  tempting underwear
and dressing gown
hanging over chair
The atmosphere electric
as the bridegroom 
awaits his bride
on the honeymoon.

Why i fight for this country

It’s foggy
I see people in the background
Running back and forth
But I can't make out who they are
 
I walk closer to see who they are
It looks like a girl
I get closer, she starts to run
Time for the chase, a chase to see who it is
 
I see a house, she runs inside
It’s a big blue house with a large front yard and a white picket fence
I knock on the door to see if anyone’s home
I walk in and in the house the fog has followed me in
 
I hear creaking foot steps coming from upstairs
I slowly walk up and stare at the wall
Its picture of me with an unknown family
A son, 2 daughters and a beautiful wife
 
I’m standing in the background in my navy whites
Where is this place, who are those persons?
Whose house is this?
Where are all the people?
 
I make it up stairs and see the children’s room. 
Daughters. It looks like twins, twins sleeping in the room all tucked in
The fog is slowly clearing, I’m getting confused
What life if this, whose shoes are these?
 
I walk further down the hall,
The next room is his.
The son in the picture,
Full of trophies and figs.
 
He looks like a sports jock
How many trophies he has
He’s sleeping with his shirt off
But still tucked in like a kid
 
I say good night
And slowly close the door
I feel this is natural
As I see his night light turn on.
 
I continue with my journey
With every step the fog clears
I see the master bedroom
And take a peek whose inside
 
I see a women, her back is turned
The women in the photo but can make out her face.
I can hear her laugh
My heart it pumping
She says to me "you’re finally home!"
 
Sounds like an angel sing
Who is this woman, what is this feeling?
She has her faced turned to her shoulder, like she wants to speak
Still can’t make out her face, its very mystique.  
 
I walk closer, I see her ring
Could this be the love of my life?
I get a little closer to see who she is
I trip and fall down 8 feet into the rhib
 
I’m on a small boat in the water splashing. 
Was I dreaming, or did that happen?
 
It’s the life I dreamed,
What I wish I had.
I fight for this country 
So everyone else can have
 
The dream that I wished for
Everyday I wake
I gave up my dream
So the whole world can take it.

Soul Crusher

You turned me into this, my soul now an abyss, cold, dark, nothing, where love no longer resides there's nothing left to hide. All the times I cried, killed me slowly; my heart just died. "Just a feeling, you'll get over it" Just a fleeting insignificant moment. You've beaten me down, but a stronger me has emerged. No longer is my soul submerged by who or what you want me to be I am me and I WILL be free! of you and your soul crushing ways.

Commitment

Being in a relationship is sometimes hard because you have to make changes that benefit you both. Your friends want you to go out every day and night but your partner wants to be wrapped in your arms tight. Before you commit to a relationship you have to be ready to give up somethings you love; whether its clubbing, drinking or smoking. You will realize that once you stick to your commitment the things you gave up no longer matter because the love you have for one another gets stronger and stronger.

The Pastor's wife

She holds his hand
In support she takes his stand
She holds his fears
Inside her tears
When she cries for her man
Who inhabits a spiritual land.

She winces at his pain
When flesh and blood fail him
Again and again
And the critical arctic blasts
That bring a coldness in his soul
Try to freeze his bones until they cannot move.

The headlights flow into each other
Heading home after locking the late night door
He stares down the headlights
Then looks into the future
Across the centre, she holds his tired hand again
Knowing the highway will never end.

The curtains light up again 
She puts a brew at the side of his bed
He turns the page and refreshes his spirit
And drinks in some heavenly wisdom
Spirit to spirit, Man to man, Deep unto deep
Here he goes again, so here she goes again too.

Refreshed, refocused, reassured
Their bones thaw
Their spirits are full
They embrace their source
But she'll keep an eye
On the one whom she shares with the world and heaven.

GOLDEN

They walked together
hand-in-hand
down a golden path
through trials and tribulations,
through hopes and dreams, 
joy and fear;
with mutual sacrifice 
and collective determination.
With passion, purpose
and enduring love
they remained united 
for half a century
in a beautiful relationship
that made them one.

Should I Leave Before You

When I gave you my heart, my life, 
      I bet never
   In your darkest fears
         Or wildest worries did you ever
   See this coming, 
This that eats away my flesh
   And inhibits me from fashioning
      The smiles I used to fashion
Incessantly.
      And this that eats away my flesh
   Wastes you, too, away, 
         Your time, your health, 
   Your patience.
While this that eats away my flesh
   May hinder me from keeping
      The forever I promised, 
Though my breath will cease
   And the flesh dissolve, 
      My heart shall safely be tucked with yours

Heartbeat

All hail thy – sweet – small – courtesies of life.
For smooth do they make the road of it.
Grace and beauty – they cut so deep not unlike a knife -
They beg all inclinations toward love at first sight.
Yes, ‘tis those courtesies which let the stranger in.
And those tones and mannerisms, they too have a meaning.

Oh - ‘tis a blessed thing,
One for which I could lose myself
To the honor of my aching.
I fear a heart which bears all to itself.
Oh yes, open – ‘lest it shut it all out.
So I ask, “Are not my eyes the scout
For which my heart journeys?
That vision, is it not flowing through my arteries
Bringing my heartbeat’s rhythm in tune?
Oh, let that beat be mine none too soon.”

With that said, she laid out her arm in front of me.
Taking hold of her fingers in my one hand, I aptly
Apply two fingers of my other hand to her wrist -
Firmly - and begin counting her heart's throb.
“One – two – three – four,” counting out aloud
Measuring each heartbeat as it happens –
Hoping to find the art of her fever.
I close my eyes as I continue to count – thinking –
There is no occupation in the world comparable
To feeling a woman’s pulse.
And when I had counted to twenty five
I looked up into her eyes and
At that instant I felt her pulse quicken.
She clutched my fingers tighter in the one hand
While pressing the wrist of her other hand
Harder into my account.

Is it possible for two to become one bone and flesh?
If that is true, what is everything else to become?
Sometimes yours while at other times the other has it?
All the while to be generally on par tallying up the score
As each of us permit the other to share in ourselves –
At least in as much as a man and a woman need to.
Not unlike a bag full of pebbles which started out jagged
And rough, with very little gleam.
Only ‘tis after being years in the bag together
Do the stones, having had many amicable collisions
Wearing down their angles and edges, do they
Become well rounded and smooth with the brilliance
Of their combined luster.
Nothing to either could have ever been
Accomplished alone.

She looks back into my eyes as she presses her wrist into me
and asks,
“How does it beat with you?”
Placing her hand on my neck I say,
“Feel for yourself -
‘Tis an improvement –
‘Tis my evidence.”

Forever She Dreams

“Forever She Dreams”
By: Christian Shepherd

I want her back in my arms,
to feel her breathe on my neck.
Her every breathe detectable on my chest.
To hold her close from leaving me.

Watch her as she sleeps,
to hold her close in a slumber so deep.
Watch as her expressions tell a dream,
her temporary reality.

Tell her to "sleep tight love,
I’ll see you in the morning."
Wake up to her by my side,
without her my heart unforgivingly bleeds.

I don’t want to be without you, 
the thought brings melancholy.
I want you with me, 
"please don’t leave me,” I plead.

But its too late for pleas,
fate has already made its judgment.
Now she is forever gone,
and I am empty.

I still bleed. 
I wish I could go back to her.
Savor every moment i took for granted.
But for now my heart still bleeds.

Lying at night kills me,
looking over where she slept.
Seeing her figure in the shadows,
knowing only that it is wishful thinking.

Still i reach over, hoping to find its rest.
I pray that rest may be her shoulder.
The shoulder that I used to cry on.
The should that now could stop my pain.

Then anger stirs inside of me,
"WHY HER! COULD YOU NOT LET HER BE!"
She was mine, not yours,
its not fair, let her be, bring her back to me!

There’s no way, fate has made its choice,
and now forever she dreams.

So for now…until the blood runs out...I bleed.

A Life

The hardest step is the first step,
They say.  I think it’s true.  No,
I know it’s true.  I took it today.
Maybe now, I can have a life.

The hardest step is the first step,
They say.  But unless I put my
Foot down, I’ll never know if
Maybe now, I can have a life.

A life without careless words and careful comfort.
A life without loving insults and calm threats.
A life without soft, choking blankets of security.
A life without fear and manipulation.

The hardest step is the first step,
They say.  I took it today, holding
A black, ink-filled pen, signing
The first step of my tomorrow.

Maybe now, I can have a life.

WHO WEARS THE TROUSERS

When out with friends			  she laughs with her friends
He is loud, impossible to ignore	                 tells them how to bark the dog down
He jeers at females, lowlifes!		                 Till he cooks, cleans and irons
He calls them useless	                                 at her every beck and call
He pushes the bar girls around		  she makes him do all that
And his peers admire him 			  her peers ask her how	
He is the ultimate alpha		                   she learnt how to roar like a lion

The Importance of Living in the Moment

“I’m worried about losing my job!”

Stop it!  Do it well.  Do it the best you can.  
Give it all you got – and if it ends, it ends.

“What if I can’t pay my bills?”

Can you pay them today?  Then that’s okay.
You’ve got a place to stay.  Live there today.

“What if my wife leaves me?”

Does she have reason to?  Then don’t give her any.
Love her now while you can.  Sometimes relationships end.
But why worry about that when it’s good now?
Your worrying might bring the end on somehow.

“What if…”

STOP.
STOP IT, I say.
By worrying about tomorrow you are ruining today!

What if, what if, what if…you know what they say about if’s,
If your Aunt was a man, she’d be your Uncle.
Give it a rest.
Living for today is best.

Look, what tomorrow brings tomorrow brings,
But you are missing all of the wonderful things
That are happening today by turning your hair gray
Worrying this way.  You could just as easily say,
What if I win the lottery; What if my poems become famous;
What if my wife loves me more than any wife has ever loved before?

My advice to you…
Live for this moment, the one that’s here now, this very second, make it great some how.
If tomorrow brings sorrow or torment or pain,
At least you would have had this great moment – it won’t come by again.

Stop worrying about What if and start having fun with What now.
So give me a happy face and please, loose that scowl.

old - alone - tired

the quiescent melancholy of the old man glistened in
a teardrop that crept down a wrinkle carved on his face.
he sat alone in his quaint little house,
rocking back and forth on his stained oak rocking-chair,
pensively staring at all the clutter stacked and scattered 
around the living room in all old tomato boxes.
his wife used to grow tomatoes out behind the shed,
she tended to her plants like he tended to her heart.
fifty-four years of memories immure him his chair 
like the corn stalks that once filled his now barren field.
in one of the boxes he finds an old water-damaged photo
of him and his wife when they were young,
when the tomatoes grew plump and the corn stood tall.
six years - it had been six years since she passed -
and everything that they once shared still sits perfectly in tact,
as if when he would wake up he would find her in the kitchen
brewing up coffee and scrambling eggs.
all of her clothes still hang, her toiletries still in place,
even her hand-written lists still lay scattered on the counter.
the wizened, white haired man rubbed his worn thumb
over her face as if he would find her silken skin on the picture.
"happy birthday, pumpkin," he whispered to her.
after wistfully thinking about how it once was,
he reminded himself about how it now is, about his life today.
the television is all he has, the thing that breaks the perpetual
silence that consumes his days.
he slowly stands up and walks to the screen door,
opening it up to the twilit countryside of west Texas.
standing out on the raddled porch, he looks up at the pecan tree
that his now grown grandchildren once rattled with a pole
to get the pecans to fall so his wife, who they called granny,
could make the best damn pecan pie in Winkler county.
he stares at the falling sheets of scrap metal built around his barn
and makes his way back to the tired shed before night falls.
he musters up the strength to hop on his sun-worn tractor
that is now covered in rusted paint and cobwebs.
again, the man begins to cry; he remembers the summer days
when he and his wife would ride together on the once
bright green tractor and tend to the fields.
 
"why, Lord, why won't you take me, i've lived a full life, i'm ready,"
he desperately yells out to mackerel sky.
"i thank you for today, lord, but i pray for no tomorrow.  
there ain't anything left for me no more - please, Lord"
 
old.
alone.
tired.
--life.

You are…

never-ending wonder

of an enchanted isle,



an inviting mystery 

magically unfolding 

before everyone’s eyes,



 You are…

like the heartwarming

timeless joyfulness 

of a million smiles,



an everlasting jewel 

of nature’s breathtaking

everlasting dreams,



You are…

like an endless lifetime 

of wishful memories

cherished innocence, 



an golden treasure 

of forever’s magnificent

glorious elegant style,



You are…

like the magical beauty

of a blushing bride’s

an vivacious splendor

of ever endearing love’s

genuine spirited charm.

THE QUEEN OF MY LIFE

Omofolabode MAKEs ME PROUD
Than anything I ever could achieved,
Seem to be so small since she arrived.
Angel winds an angelical formation.

Breathing seems so hard to do,
Suddenly, the promise of love has gone.
Omofolabode, I now understand
The time we made love together.

Why do I love you like I do?
You should have told me
Like a sunrise, like a rainfall
You make me feel funny

When you come around.
What I find out is joy.
She makes me feel happy
Like velvet to my skin

And I often wonder why?
Someone as flowed as I
Deserve to be as happy as
She makes me
To long for omofolabode
The queen of my life.

We won't live forever time limited offer To Dave

I wish we could
sit in a soft field 
of flowers and bask
in the sun on our
faces-I'd do it alone and
think of you and what
you would say in the
inspiritational message-
the sharing in the simplicity,
in the humaness of the 
moment-in the sheer 
joy to be in a warm
place---safe for a moment.
 
I can set up the scene,
the characters, the dialogue,
We will not live forever,
Lost time in a debit, 
account held against
small core savings.

In the end will it be
"enough" that we--I -tried?

Will there be credit for
the tenacity? Or are we
selling finely carved and
cheap plastic security?

Love Is

Love is the greatest feeling to know.
Love is learning as we go.
Love is blind when others see.
Love is you and love is me.
Love is your hug when I'm feeling down.
Love is showing me off around town.
Love is missing me when I can't stay.
Love is kissing me though I'm miles away.
Love is your soft caress on my skin.
Love is my heart letting you in.
Love is your smile inside and out.
Love is knowing without a doubt.
Love is standing in the rain.
Love is my happiness and my pain.
Love is waiting in the cold.
Love is together growing old.
Love is truth and respect.
Love is to forgive and to forget.
Love is the soft look in your eye.
Love is your shoulder when I cry.
Love is whispering your name to the wind.
Love is understanding again and again.
Love is wanting to hold you soon.
Love is wishing on the same bright moon.

Dance

We lay together in this moment 
Time stands still around us and only we move 
I hear you breathing in my ear as your hands slide down my chest 
We make God weep at the dance we perform 
And you cry his name in the bliss you desire 
Am I doing this right for you?
Do you like the way I make you move in my arms?
We are hardly half done as we make our own music play the tone I know you love
 Now you lead and I follow in this love dance
Breathing heavy we work in love make you moan 
Am I doing this right for you my love?
I know I am from the weeping of joy from all the desire you have 
We spin round so you can dance above me 
This dance has barley begun 
The dance was slow 
Our hands roaming looking for the right place to hold 
I sigh in relief as we hold each just right 
Let  us speed it up 
The climax is come in this dance 
The final part is close can you feel it approaching?
Heavy breathing stop momentarily just as the world starts around us again
Looking into the your eyes I know this was right
The dance we have started 
Has come to an end for know.

No Picture

No Picture

I am not taking your picture.

You think my camera
is pointed at you,
it appears as though my
finger may trigger the shutter 
at any second.

I am not taking your picture.

I want your candid shot.
I want you posed, playful or annoyed,
ready and unprepared, over and over.
In color and black and white
blurry and in focus.

I am not taking your picture.
 
My lens is wide and long,
my mind’s eye quick with recollection  
mental film imperfect. 
But you, my love, fill every frame
perfectly,
with or without an exposure.

I am not taking your picture.

I Love You

I love you, I love you.
What do these three words mean?
 
Do they mean, “I want your money,”
Or, “I want to be, though poor, with you”?
 
Maybe they mean, “I am the boss”,
Or, maybe, “What would you like to do?”
 
Another still, “You must love me”
Or, “No matter what, I still love you.”
 
No, love is not I, and love is not me,
For love is simply, you.

Hug

1.

"Have you hugged yourself today?"

I still remember that question.
I was not able to answer it.
But there you were, you always so,
if you ask questions
you have had the answers.

"Your arms are too short for your body.
but certainly long enough for me."

Then you came into my arms
and dwelt therein.

"Do you still keep that hug?"

We asked each other.
Then we laughed together.

A hug is the only
answer to the question.
Then buried us into memories.

2.

My wife prefer to hug than to say a word:

"i love you, boy!
i love you, hubby!"

As if the two arms
can convey all the secrets.

Our children grow
loving arms more than words.

That is why every night my wife
prayed to be an octopus.
And all of us come into
the hugs of her hands.

3.

One by one, the body
will escape from the hug

then our arms
began to carry guns
and wars.

The body was destined
to belonged to a hug
then later owned by bullets.

With Every Beat of My Heart

With every beat of my heart, my love for you grows stronger-
Like the strength of a three-cord bind;
You permeate my mind, constantly, all the time.

When I wake or when I sleep, my love for you residually increase.
No day goes by  that I dont think of you
Longing to be with you, now, forever; just you and me in perfect harmony--
With love so deep and lasting that it overshadows all hurts of the past.

With every  beat of my heart
My love for you gets more real-
As genuine as a diamond,
A precious as a gem-
More than a feeling, my love for you is an everlasting seal to bind our hearts 
together in unconditional love that surpasses all others for its ordained by God 
above.

I love you true and real
I love you strong and deep
I love you quiet and still
I love you tender and free
I love you for loving me.

"Proper Pam im-promiscuity carries a

of a dimlit digital marital marquee---last on the

hand cranked by an arthritic arm;
pit pursuant of
quicksand lust with a gray gaze monotony
able to hitchhike from a plavce point left
only undetermined,
I've seen more action from a shoe sticky floor
or a large hole in an uncomfortable seat cushion,
not to "juxtapare"  mind me but what a

desires---stratfied pleasures far from TILT
lean calmly on majestic inconsequentials--like

My Power Story

My Power Story

As a child, I only saw 
the power of three,
my Mom, 
             my Dad 
                      and me.
                             We were a solid three.

When my brother Jon was born
I adopted the power of four.
Because he I adored,
I learned to make room for four.

When I was eight,
I learned to value
the power of two,
me and my best friend Sue.
Without her by my side, there was
nothing I could do!

Then my horizons began
to broaden and I learned
the power of five, six, seven
Eight and ten…
My numbers of friends
kept increasing.
My world was 
constantly multiplying
and dividing, as soon as 
puberty bloomed in me.

But when chirping blue birds
and naked cherubs started  
spinning around my head,
when the love struck and
set in at age nineteen,
I seemed to go backwards,
back to the power of two.

Those were the glory days
when we could sit and
gaze into each other’s eyes
for days.  We’d walk through
the park and the zoo
holding hands and saying
I love you.

Clueless was I, that the
misuse of this mystical power 
of two, could leave
me battered and bruised,
and emotionally
used and abused.

Once my stone tower of two
came tumbling down,
the power of two didn’t seem as
fresh as spring dew anymore,
as before when I thought our love
was strong enough to last forever!

For years the soured 
power of two made me
want to run endlessly,
to distant corners
of the earth just to escape
the painful memories
of ever being a part of this
dreadful duo.

Now I am starting
to enjoy the warm rays of sun
and the dynamic fun
that I’ve found in
the best power
of them all,
the power of one!

Just me,
by myself in the
day to day grind,
learning to stand strong as one,
to love and to nurture myself,
enjoying my life
without any strife.

There’s a lot to be said
about the power of one.
Learning to find joy and peace,
just being me for a while.

One day I’ll probably
be ready to move on to
whatever power is next for me,
when loneliness
starts to sour this 
single power.

But for now,
I’ll enjoy the
power of one,
to the tenth
degree,
just being me!

My Love for You

My love for you is like the rare star,
Far to reach but so warmth.
A blue colour star I guess;
For your my heaven, my rest.

I want to hold you on my lap,
Feel the compassion and care I have.
Feel the light as I point my smile 
To your diamond eyes.

Uh c'mon never laugh at me,
I know your thinking you're out of place.
Come here never feel grey, sit with me
Ill shower your canvass with thousand kisses.

Yes your all, I won't regret.
No more other empress I'll dare press.
For you are everything to me;
Milady I'm always yours,
Slave of love.

Mighty Matriarch




Resilient man

able to ward off dragons

tow glaciers

shake off venomous snake bite

scale Mt. Everest

survive desert, blizzard conditions

wage war with guilt

boast of battle;

braggadocio


Frail male, behold the mighty girl...

you're helpless for that female touch

hopeless in her love

reckless fire desire


Look at you boy...

needy, weak, lost

minus her embrace

yet,

toe to candy red painted toe

pitted against her

you'll not draw even


Smart Sexy Matriarch

indeed,

she's undisputed

exuding power from within those brazen inferno ice eyes

she's everything and she's nothing

she's the bane of his existence

she's royalty man could not live without.

In Bed Alone

In the dark,
Familiar sounds of dogs
Barking wake me from
A dream of you sleeping,
Warm and close,
Next to me.

I reach out for your hip,
But find only absence.

In the dark,
I think of you,
The sweetness of your smile,
The gentle rise and fall
Of your voice,
The well worn softness
Of your nightgown
That hugs you like I do
When we're near.

I miss you, Dear!

Never Again

Woman and child are dragged to the gate. The husband thrashes, but by then it's too late. The conductor points to left or to right. Neither direction survives much past tonight. The former brings them to a deathly gas; In the latter, they must be fit enough to pass. The wife weeps when forced to port. The man and son will work 'til their lives are cut short. The woman is stripped, then beaten and raped. The child digs a ditch; with a shovel it's scraped. The husband gets bread, but never enough. His spouse gets a room in which people are stuffed. The grave complete; the guard turns his gun on the boy. In the room with the gas, all lives are destroyed. The man is assigned to work with the fires. And after seeing his wife he embraces the wires. Three innocents: victims of the Holocaust. When people follow blindly, all is lost.

Spell B o u n d

Spelled Out

Spellbound, he captured me

But it was only a dream.

Craftily my mind carved

A space where we danced

And he drank honey

From my pomegranate navel.

Gently we caressed

Butterfly kisses extended

Unto flight of heart.

Spellbound, he captured me

But he was only a dream

His rugged jacket and 

Camouflages marched

Like ghosts in a desert

An aching in the hollows of my belly

Called out to him

Our wedding day approached

As I searched for wedding dresses

Pressed into 

Bridal magazines forever

A flower of international deceit

Instant bravery served like

Coffee wasted unto a table of

Unfinished jigsaw puzzles.

Spellbound he captured me

But I was only a dream

Jacked up into a tiny space

I did not even scream 

When my very being splintered

At my second birth

Blood and dust compressed

Clanging in the ears

Of innocent passersby

I dissolved like ice

Buttered popcorn thrown into

A crowded theatre

Surprising everyone yet

Recognizable as marches

For freedom

That will always and never

Be attainable.

He pushed me into a corner

Of my own life and I looked

Out screaming until

I broke the spell.

I captured the dream

Sat it at a distance

Breathing life into it

A dragon blast of oxygen

A parade of hope

Like on January 16

Every year dreaming

Of peace and rightness

Spell broken I captured me

Forcing air into my

Lungs as I expanded

Breath after breath

Thought after thought

Step after step

Lifting my hands 

Unto the plow

Reclaiming my raisin

From the explosion

Digging the ditches

Of reconnection

Forming a mound of

Clay into a habitation

Praying arrogantly that all

Spellbound captivity

Will end.

Don't Leave Yet

Don't leave yet
Take some time to remember
The distinctive way we met
Remember a time where kisses were speckled
With smiles

We weren't always so grey
There used to be colour and life
There used to be time to play
Don't leave yet, carry me home
Just one more time

Retrace to the start
Where you promised to hold me
Til death do us part
Hold me tonight, all night long
Because tomorrow I'll be gone

Another Perfect Day

A pillow rests beneath wavy locks of sunburst hair,
eyelids shallow, folding closed over ocean deep eyes,
porcelin arms, as ivory as the snow cross over a warm white bear,
little pouting lips purse and twitch with a hidden smile as dreams take over,
simple words, sweet and true slip from them with a breath,

                                   "Tomorrow will be the best day of my life, 
                                     because it will mean that I get to spend 
                                     another perfect day, with you by my side."

Gift to me the World

Give me the world you live in;
through blood,
I have found it to be mine,
and all that is in it,
can be mine as well.
Gift to me the day
and the sun that lights it;
the moon and all its claimed nights,
its nights drowned in the dreams of bed-wetters,
those can be yours.
Bring me the stars
and the planets made from rock,
so that I may hurl them into the creeks
and watch as they skip off,
out of sight,
far off into the untouched depths of my world.
Bring me all that you know,
all that you want and wish for,
bring me all this,
and bring me vanities so true,
the heart of man would reject them...

Erotic Dilemma

There she comes
Wafting like the breeze 
Amidst her splendor
She breathes,

Her eyes, O her eyes!
A drawing of skies
A symphony to 
Sensationalize,

There she comes
Waltzing upon her cadence,
Her gleaming portrait…
My buoyance! 

My rejuvenation, my loving wife…

There she comes
Her smoking intoxication,
As I inhale her odor
My sensation,

Her touch, O her touch!
Upon her essence 
My soul is clutched…
Her sensuality, 
Invigorating suspense,

There she comes
Crimson as she charms
Resting amidst my fingers
She tends to harm!

My liberation, my loving cigarette…


For a husband and wife
One of you ought to throw out some Marlboros!

Ziphorah

She washed the road’s dust on my face,
touched my weary hand with her bare fingers  
briefly – like a sparrow flipping its wings
and left – watching me from afar.
 
I had no claim for justice, nor brothers or sons.
With me the thirsty herd and a blood stain,
while she watched me from afar –
dark daughter of the desert tribes of Arabia.
 
Forget the voice, forget the calling.
She was the first fire sent to me and I answered,
Ziphorah, the dark skinned Ziphorah - 
Who cleaned my hair and face from the road’s dust.
 
Now I hear her voice and the voice of the slaves,
the voice of the children erased by a shadow
The waves of murderous waters and the bawling
of the golden calf – I hear her voice out of the tent.
 
In this desert I stand alone with my wooden staff. 
Who are all those children I saved
when in an unnamed wheel on an unnumbered day
I helped the seven sisters of Median?

Wedding Blessing

As you stand here before God,
Now may he stand beside you.
May you and your family be blessed in all that you do.
May your family find love as your hearts twine as one.
May your journey thru life follow the light he has shone.
Together you’re stronger than ever apart.
And thru the years, may God be found forever in your heart.

Me, Donnie, Stephen and Our Wife....(Adult Content)

My wife says she can't tell the differnce at times. One body, one heart and soul, but three different minds...... Today I woke up and looked into the mirror. Am I seeing things a little clearer? See, my Psychiatrist says it is a mental disease. When family come around, they ask if I'm 'Donnie, Stephen or me!' Sometimes I find myself doing things I dislike and hate, like food on my plate. It's a wonder how I manage my weight. And with me, Donnie, and Stephen, it's easy to see how my tastes fluctuates. It's like I awake from a trance of deep sleep; and I immediately know I'm "me." My wife is kinda scared of "Donnie." He's the one that likes lots of sugar in his coffee; And "Stephen" likes hot dogs with too much chili. She says "Donnie" is conceited and a big flirt. He likes to show off, walking around without his T-shirt. She does admit to liking him whisper in her ear 'how he can't wait to have her for dessert.' She said she was turned on at the Nickleback Concert, because he had kept his hand up her skirt. She says "Donnie" is a little wild without a care in the world. But she does admit to enjoying being me, Donnie and Stephens' girl! She says "Stephen" is funny. Because he smokes marijuana and acts so silly. She says he is more of a free spirit and very kinky. He can even play guitar and does miracles with his "slinky." She says "Stephen" enjoys the zoo and amusement parks. She says he surprises her with flowers and Hallmark. She loves "Stephens'" sensitivity and she thought chivalry was dead. She says he's far from selfish in bed. "Stephen" likes to try new things and convinces her to give it a whirl. She admits to enjoying being me, Donnie and Stephens' girl. When it comes to sex she has learned to tell us three apart. But still can't tell the difference in our beating heart. She says "Donnie" likes to talk dirty in bed and treat her with no class. "Donnie" likes it doggy-style, so he can also spank her a**. She says "Stephen" likes reverse cow-girl position. But at times "Stephen" likes "anal" slowly sticking his key in her ignition. She says with "me" she stays sexually excited, and enjoys my sensuality when I go down and bite it. She has said her darkest desires are satisfied having us three; And her fantasies are always fulfilled with my multiple personalities!

Cracked : To Thia Vaspyll

Dear,
Maiden with two babies
Devoured by its own histrionic intelligent delusion

Of wings and air
You got ragged
It might be true, but

Go pack your paraphernalia
Inside the box as square as your mindset
I speak and you did and nobody else knows what we said

Them surmissing,
Isn’t that what you want?

Perfect.

Tears

If tears could be measured in quantity, If tears could be weighed, If tears could be drinking water, A lot would go to waste. If tears had colours, Then I’ve already cried a rainbow. If tears were words, It’ll take forever to read. I don’t know if I’m a stupid fool, But I’ve cried enough To fill an entire pool. My emotions are shredded rags, The feeling of abandonment Is all that resides. Emptiness is lurking. And all that’s pushing: The tears from my eyes. Just leaving me more emptier than before. And all that commotion? Just because I dare To love and care.

around about 85 degrees, I drink honey straight from the hives of bees, what 
a wonderful breeze, the Scent of Love, is what my nostrils breathe.

In God we believe, in each other we’re both intrigued, the substance from love 
is all I need, what a Beautiful Breeze.

It entered my ears and stopped at my knees, it spoke to me, it said God sent 
me, I’m your wife, and half your life, marry me, my heart and mind spoke at 
the same time, well we both agree.

We both believe, we’re meant to be, so on one knee I asked this Wonderful 
Breeze to marry me, to be my only Breeze, to be the only air I breathe, to 
conceive my seeds, I promise to fulfill all our needs, but only if you agree to be 
my One-n-Only Wonderful Breeze. So, I say to myself, why wouldn’t you be if 
God sent you to me, to be. Do you agree, so answer me.
                                         
                                           Yes, No or Absolutely?

I am Water

Now my words fall
On your ears
Like water on
The back of a duck.

You swim in doubt
And distrust.

Whereas you have
Become the essence
Of my existence.

I am water all over
And that is the 
Plain truth.

Yesterday, I returned
Home from work
To have you
Sniffing at me
In search of a 
Stranger’s perfume.

To my husband with love

 You've given me about everything I've ever asked for
Thats why I want to tell you dear each day I love you more.

If I could turn back the hands of time theres one thing I would erase
and that would be all the worry lines I've put upon your sweet face.

You've been my friend through all these years
the only true one I've had.

You've been there by my side to comfort 
me when things were going bad.

And rho life's not been easy it never was meant to be
I wanted you to know sweetheart your everything to me.

I've almost lost you many times,but God has pulled us through
hes given us another chance to live our  life all new.

Theres just one thing in this whole world
I'd really love to do. and that one thing to me
sweetheart is to live my life with you.

your wife
with love
"Teeny"


( this was written to my grandpa... we never discovered this poem  until the day 
she passed away. It fell from a  photograph of her and my sister... ( the picture 
was tooken when my sister was little). We framed it and  had it placed in the 
living room.... January 2nd  2008 my house caught fire  and we practically lost 
everything  especially  this only  poem written to grandpa by his wife ( grandma). 
Lucky before the fire one year  in 2006  I had the chance to  write it down  and  
place among my   poems... When I  read this poem I  grew the   ability to write my 
own... like I have a  piece of my grandma in me. and I just want to tell her I miss 
her and  love her  "R.I.P. grandma Evans aka Teeny  9/11/1934- 9/8/1999")

Forever-Part 1

Out on the beach with an amazing guy. The sun's so pretty, the sun's so bright. We're walking and talking about all our good times, against the world, hand in hand. Smiling and walking on the beautiful LA sand. We sit on a bolder and watch the sun set. It's an amazing day, one I will never forget. You slip your arm around me as we as we look at the beautiful sea. "I love you," I say as we feel the cool evening breeze. "I love you too," you say and pull out a small black box. I look at you, smile, and my heart stops. You open the box to reveal a beautiful ring. "Will you marry me?" you ask as my eyes fill with tears and my heart starts to sing. My smile gets wider as I say "yes". You pull me close to your chest. I gently kiss you as a tear rolls down my cheek. You brush it away and smile at me. "I love you," I say one more time. "I love you to baby," you say as you smile, "now your deffinitly all mine."

 

Today's the day, the day that starts the rest of our life. The day you become my husband, the day I become your wife. The last time I saw you was last night. But I woke up to a beautiful sight. A bouque of beautiful red roses lie on your pillow with a note on top. "I love you," it says, "and I can't wait to see you." I smile and whisper "I love you too." I take a shower and walk down to the beach to see how much is done. I step onto the hot sand and I feel the hot sun. It's almost done so I start to head home. I need to here your voice so I call your phone. "Hey babe," you say, "is everything okay?" I tell you everythings fine, I just need to hear you. I tell you I love you. You tell me you love me too. You say you have to go but you'll see me soon. "Okay, I love you," I say and look at the clock, it's almost noon. "I love you too," you say and the line goes dead. I look in the mirror and put my hands on my head. I smile and start to get ready for tonight. The first night of m new life.

I take a look in the mirror one last time. Just to make sure my beautiful dress is fine. I walk down to the beach and wait by the gate. I fix my veil and look at my friend. "You look amazing," she says and puts some flowers in my hand. "Thanks," I say and smile. I can't wait to walk down the aisle.

Wrong Love

Beauty no less pure than a drop of water from the cleanest falls, body with not too 
many assests to worry about but enough to enjoy as well as protect, eyes to stare at 
my face and still read emotions displayed across the back of my mind, the only one who 
doesn't need to know the darker details of my mind but still understands to find out. 
Care and concern from the bottom of her heart and worry at the blink of an eye when 
situations seem suddenly dim though they were previously shining like a diamond in 
front of the sun's beams. These words written are only a few reasons why she holds my heart and why I'll protect and serve her's till the day she sees me no longer fit for the responsibility. -poetic

Preach

Preach to the full moon soldier
It's all you've got left as the nights grow colder

Mother has child that father denies
Leaves when his baby lets out those first cries
Excuses flying, lies sailing; words without care
Feelings are complicated so share you don't dare
Lips that smile hold some bruises and a cut
Hands that have done the damage slam the door shut
You watch him out the window glass
Retreating figure gone at last

Preach to the full moon soldier
It's all you've got left as the nights grow colder

Things get harder, mothers fired
Baby is toddler and much too tired
Money is in short supply
If only father would just comply 
To help raise his growing kid
Instead he ran and lost his bid
A single tear stains the cheek
Of a mother's soul who's much too weak

Preach to the full moon soldier 
It's all you've got left as the nights grow colder

Mothers dead, everything's blown
Toddler is small child left alone
Father drunk, stumbling back
Custody left to this piece of slack
Days are long and too far gone
Nights are worse, he's never done
Talking his beer scented words speaking
He says to his child be kind, PREACHING

Preach to the full moon soldier 
It's all you've got left as the nights grow colder

Small child has developed
Distinguished individual moving up
Swearing to the sky blue
They will be nothing like you
Father in jail thief from the night
Cell lit dimly with pal moonlight
A smile to the grown child
A tear from the man of the wild

Preach to the full moon soldier
It's all you've got left as the nights grow colder

The Hung Jury

When he entered the world 
They started him off with
Non-negotaible funding
For a sacrilegious plea.
After all,
He'd been through a lot.
Enough to know what
Was good for him.
When he waited for
His turn to reply
Instead of listening
To their speech
He noticed a fellow
Jury member
Nugging at his knee.
What oracle 
In all her honesty
Could foresee 
What they would
Channel unto his
Sun soaked brow?
His wife's plush face
Contorted in 
An anthrax laced expression
That deadened the nerves in his smile.
She knew.
History became a myth to her.
Now all he was 
Was a drifter
Only seemingly beautiful to
Awkward girls just above
Smiling but
Always below turning to dust.
He reached inside their 
Far fetched frowns and
Drew back the staggered snarling
Teeth
Of the beast that
Bid him goodnight.

Song Of A House Wife

I will lay my bed
Prepare my man coffee
Mob my house
Wash my dishes
Take my children to school
Visit my doctor
And then my lawyer
To work on my papers
Then visit my sweet friends
To talk about our families 
You know we control everything 
That's why every good thing at home is mine
My cat, 
My car,

His mess

Tears

She cried because her world had collapsed
He cried because their world had collapsed
She wanted her world back
He couldn’t live in it

She cried because she had lost love
He cried because he had found love
She wanted his love back
He couldn’t give it

She cried because she was alone
He cried because he had been alone
She would never understand
He knew she couldn’t. He left

mise-en-scene-II

It was a far cry for us to rent a house
But desire prevailed upon limited income
My wife was showing the rented house
To a beautiful woman, our next door neighbour,
And I was preoccupied with my work
Sitting in our loosely fenced enclosure.
“This is our kitchen,” my wife said
“Superb” the woman said
“This is our bedroom”, my wife said
“Very cute” she said using another adjective
“This is our living room,” my wife said
“Oh, wonderful” Yet another adjective
As they came out where I was sitting
“My husband” my wife said
“Very wwwwwww” she said,
She started rattling on about 
the previous occupants of the house
Rambling together tales of the tenants.
The woman knew I taught English at a college,
I think she wanted me to overheard
The random adjectives she used in English.
Don’t ask me in which humour
My wife had been as the lady left.

Simple sleep
Such intimacy
One leg over
Chest pressed
Head to lip
Smelling hair
A twitch
Adjustment
Quietly cold
Calm isolation
Body curls
Shoulders covered

Hear a tick
A flutter
Attachment
Protective pull
Pure intent
Arms sink
Hips pressed
Head to cheek
Taste of salt

I PROMISE

                                                      I PROMISE

I promise from this day forward,
To always be as open with you as you are with me.
I promise to always consider your feelings,
As you consider mine.
I promise to make your welfare my first concern,
Just as you make mine yours;
And I promise to love and honor you,
For as long as you will love and honor me.

Please do not ask me to be obedient,
For I am not your servant.
Do not ask me to be perfect,
For I am only human;
And do not ask me to be what you think I should be,
For I am not you, and can never be.

I can only be what God has made me,
A separate personality,
And essentially different from you in every way.
I have different ideas and different ways from you.
That does not make me wrong,
Just different.
Accept me, love me, honor me,
And I will reply in kind.

                                                            Judy Ball

People often wonder what went wrong in a marriage.  
The answer is simple.
They forgot to accept each other as individuals and started thinking of each other as mere extensions of themselves.
They get angry and resentful because their mate, their "other half" can't read their mind or does not agree with everything they say or do.
They lose respect for each other as individuals with feelings of their own.
Remember:
Marriage is like a bank account. If you don't put anything into it you can't take anything out.

The Affair

Bird-girl, gull,
The new Boatswain's wife,
Remember when
they'd call you
the Girl of the Wandering Ship,
the pale fire of the night?

S.S Montblanc,
White Mountain,
I've climbed aboard...

And made love
to sparks,
explosions, powder,
Hundred people dead
in an hour,
victims of extramarital

God's gift to men

God saw what he created and was 
Pleased but with pity he looked upon
the lonely Adam and said a man needs
a companion like the angels with compassion
who will be there when he feels abandoned. 
And a light to him in the darkness. 

God therefore formed a woman from Adam’s 
ribs to remind men both were created from dust
and are to become one flesh.The man was pleased 
with God's precious gift as she filled his world with
passion and taught him commitment and dedication.
She became his hope after the fall and no more did 
the man battle the war alone but with the woman he
became a complete soul.

Necessity is

Necessity is...

Archimedes sat at the table with his wife
a contemplative look in his eye
slowly eating Psomi and grapes
until finally he said:

"What would you like to do today dearest?"
"Would you like to go to the sea and bathe?"

"Perhaps", she said, ... "later".

"Would you care to walk to the peaks,
to see the arc of the Earth?" said he.

"No, I think not." she replied.

"Then the Amphitheatre, for a two-act play?"

"No," she said "...but we could play."

A bit bewildered he finally said,
"Well, what on Earth would you like to do?"

She smiled and quietly replied,
"We need to oil the Archimedean screw."

Why

Why do you do this,
Why do you twist my world upside down?
Why do you hurt me,
Why do you always knock me to the ground?
Why do I love you so much,
Why after all you put me through?
Why did you change,
What did I do to you?
What was the reason,
What was the means for us to be at this point in our life,
You not here,
And no longer my wife?
What made you make choices,
That led to a family ripped apart?
What made you hurt so many hearts?
Why?

Forever-Part 2

Pacabells cannon starts to play. The gates open and everyone looks my way. Beautiful black and red roses line the red carpet that leads to you. You look amazing tonight too. I look at my white dress as I step into the setting sun. The light catches the black sparkles and roses on my dress and makes me look beautiful, makes me feel like one. A black rose on this beautiful LA sand. A black rose that belongs to a wonderful man. I slowly walk down the aisle. I walk up to you and I smile. There's black and red roses on the alter and I get up ther. I can smell their sweet fregrance in the warm evening air. The paster starts as I look at you. You say you vouls and I say mine too. You say "I do," and I do the same too. You slip yet another beautiful ring on my finger and kiss me so sweetly. We hold hands and walk back down the beautiful rose lined aisle.

 

We walk to the peir where there are beautiful lights hung up everywhere. I spin to look at the beauty and you lean in close to me and say, "wait here." You walk up to the DJ and request and smile as a familure tune comes on. I continue to smile and I take your hand. you walk me back out onto the beautiful sand.  "Our first dance," you say. My smile gets bigger when I here Amazed starts to play. You pull me closer to you as we start to move from side to side. My nourvousness is hard to hide. "You okay beautiful?" you ask softly as you gently run your hand through my hair. "Yeah baby, I'm fine," I say as I see people gather around and stare. We dance and we sway sweetly and quietly. We kiss and dance slowly. We kiss again and you start to sing along with the song. I've been waiting for this day, I've been waiting so long.

 

We'r walking on the beach again. hand in hand. you still in your tux, I'm still in my dress. This is our future. Together. Forever. The setting sun catches my ring. It shines brightly. "I love you," I say and we kiss again. "I love you too," you say and gently pick me up.

You carry me back up to the house. You carry me up sairs and lay me on our bed. You lay beside me and gently kiss my head.

We lay there and talk for hours and hours. We smile and laughas our future stretches on in front of us.

War

Mothers screaming
Daughters watching
Fathers leaving
Brothers waiting

And for all the things we do 
Nothing is accomplished
And when you think about it
All we do is kill

From straight lines
And single shot rifles
To hiding in bushes 
Waiting for the enemy to go by

We become more aggressive
In unholy acts of power
For Power, Wealth
Superiority, and Revenge

Now Its high powered rifles
Anything goes and the past is forgotten
We watch the casualties mount
But we can't stop the flow

Only one group suffers 
Through all of this
It's not the government
The men or the enemy

The only group that suffers 
Are the ones screaming
And the ones
That watch

Fickle Lady

(The bluebird Saga)

She took a lot of convincing
Poor guy, he was trying

After the eviction from
purple martin domain
he had no home to offer

He quarreled and begged
scolding us, insensitive 
clods that we were

Research taught us
exactly what we needed
Soon - not one, but three
bluebird houses were in place

He pleaded, he cajoled
She flew off with another

Now she's back
(apparently unsatisfied)
building a nest
in one of the three

He's a stand-up guy,
happy and content
Go figure

Amber Heaven

Sweetness clings to tea spoons,
amber heaven gleaming in
the early morning light.

It hangs, reluctant to depart,
then flows slowly down
toward my brewed fortification.

The load delivered, a thin remainder
tempts me, and I plunge it
into my mouth.

Thoughts of you flood my mind
as concentrated joy explodes,
leaving me with sticky lips
and a smile.

Mabel

The crisp cool breeze
helped the sailboat to glide,
like a swan on a lake,
or the glory of a kite.

The shiny exterior
shone pearlescent white,
the gold, christened lettering,
gloriously reflecting the light.

Newly purchased, fridge stocked,
husband proudly at the wheel,
his wife dressed in stripes,
below, fussing about their meals.

This was their retirement,
the life they had planned,
and then without warning,
she felt dizzy; she could not stand.

As she gasped for air
and tried to call out his name,
her husband stood proudly,
planning his wife's life long dream.

As she stumbled and fell,
her head hit the table,
her husband oblivious
he was mapping their course,
deep in thought; for his beautiful wife; Mabel.

Her dream was to voyage
the open blue seas,
like two peas in a pod,
his Mabel, the queen bee.

As she lay motionless,
no sound could be heard,
but the lull of the waves
and sweet song of the birds.

As the husband took a step
down the galley below,
all he saw was his Mabel,
clutching her ring; eyes closed.

He gently and lovingly
picked her up with care,
and he took his wife, Mabel
and collapsed in their chair.

He rocked her and cried
my Mabel, my love,
you are my joy, my life,
as he released her to the sun.

He whispered a note
of her favourite tune,
as he took off his ring
and gently put it with hers.

Mabel, my love,
we will never be apart,
for the vows that we spoke,
are forever in our hearts.

You're Heavy On My Mind

It's silent
except for the buzzing
of the flourescent lights
in this deserted classroom.
I should be studying
but my thoughts keep drifting
back to our talk.
Is it possible
to make time for ''us''
without taking from ''them''? 
You're so heavy on my mind
that the Behaviorist Theory
really seems irrelevant.

We both know 
we've lost focus.
We admit 
that everything else
comes first.
Lifes daily turmoils...
Can't we leave it all
for one day? 

How do people do it? 
Their lives are packed
full at every minute
yet they still manage
to spend time alone
together.
Does it take a special
kind of person? 
Are we just too
unorganized to manage this? 

If only for a moment
I want to look 
into your eyes
and fall in love
again.
I want to lose myself 
in the dark mystery
of those brown eyes 
that have watched me 
change from a child
to a woman.

The buzzing 
of the flourescent lights
remind me
that I only have 2 days
to study.
You're still heavy on my mind.

Coffee, Tea or Me?

 
I am here, again
asking you, “Honey, coffee or tea?” 
not that I love to ask, nor I’m too forgetful.

Indeed, to tell you the truth 
I would say, really
I’d have it ready by the time you wake-up.

It is not that I am 
not fully aware of what you like, you see 
but simply, I miss so much not hearing 

…you whisper, ere you go to work  
to my ear, teasingly, “Not coffee, nor tea
but you…I want. Oh, kiss me, my baby!”

Her spirit stolen by rainstorm
Body of her became a sacrifice 
To the turbulent blizzard.

Once upon a soul mate 
We both danced in the day
And we have both thrust
Our feet together in the dark

I had thought 
I was the only key to her heart
Until I met the door I left clogged opened
My luggage packed outside in the rain.

I knocked the door endlessly
Still under the bashing of 
A heavy clatter of water from the above
Visibly shaking, fidgeting 
Like a lost pullet with no mother

I heard a heavy laughter from within 
I peeped through the window
Nothing in sight to behold
In my world, rain stopped 
To me alone, it was no longer raining

Heat came over me from within
My head ran fast as I became hot
Is she inside all the while?
Has somebody replaced me?

No, rang through my medulla oblongata
Basking in the effusive 
Hymns of “forever together”
“Bad thought of a bad dream”
I chorused to ‘self

The masculine laughter reverberated 
With a ugly but husky voice 
This time accompanied by a very
Feeble but familiar sonorous voice
Playing the Juliet to the Romeo’s laughter

I am dead, I’m finished 
My soul mate, now soul lost?
Life stared at me without a sire

Meaning of Your Love


My thoughts are of your touch upon my skin
Off went proverbial fireworks exploding within me.
Sleepy and slumberous and so very sated,
. 
and not only in my eyes but in my heart, my soul,
 my entire being.
I look into your beautiful eyes.
Wondering if the flowers feel loved,
and with a loving touch, a spell is cast! 

 When our eyes first met,
I loved everything about you.
I have awoken to a love that will last.

Who knows.

 Who knows what might be,
 the future I would love to see.
 What will become of me.
the friends I hold so dear,
my wife my kids, my family.
I hope my kids,know right,
from wrong, and live a life,
healthy and long.
My wife and I will grow old,
and grey, 
shouting to hear what each other,
has to say.
The world will be a better place,
you can look each other in the face.
Wars,and famine are the past,
peace, is here at last.
The friends I hold so dear,
will still be here,
we will talk of times of  the past,
how then, we wished, they would last.
could this be so,or is it me,
I  wish some one would say,
either way.
Who knows.

What can I do.

There are many times,
I  have asked myself.
Many times I have looked within.
The  deeper I probe,
the harder it gets,
I can't win.
What can I prove to you,
so you will understand,
the many thoughts, spinning,
in the mind off this young man.
I have so often tried to change for you,
I admit I have failed.
Too many things in the past.
Time goes by too fast,
to regret a single day.
We should live together now,
and enjoy each new day.

my angela

my angela 
 soft as a pedal 
 on a rose 
 essence of love 
 let it rain down on me 
 my angela’s kiss of love 
 give me strength 
 as free as an eagle in flight 
 you captured me 
 nurtured me 
 gave me life 
 a life I had never known 
 conversations on tapes 
 correspondence on letters and cards 
 love in a package 
 romance on the phone 
 you came to me through 
 a friend 
 bright as the noon sun 
 you caught my 
 eye 
 heart 
 mind 
 over the ocean you took me 
 the sacrifice was made 
 November winter love 
 a playground of emotions 
 laughing , loving and waiting 
 be my wife angela 
 until forever is over

Blooming Love

Love is like a blooming rose
Everyday changing becoming more beautiful
It has thorns that make situations uncomfortable
Once you get past the problems life becomes bright agian
It grows because the sun as bright as the smile of the one you love
You keep each other grounded and focused much like the roots of the flower
All of these components keep it alive and all are vital for an undieing, beautiful love

Sure

Sure as the world turns,
Sure as the rivers flow,
Sure as the seasons change,
Sure as the mighty winds blow,
I will not give.
Sure as the earthquakes shiver,
Sure as the plants will turn green,
Sure as the rain will fall,
Sure as the stars will gleam,
I will not give.
Sure as love appears,
Sure as there is hate,
Sure as the wars to come,
Sure as we believe in fate,
I will not give,I will love you with my heart and soul....

Apple Dumplings

Sitting alone
always at home I stare out of the window
I play in the kitchen...play like a witch when
I think of you missing
The true nature ...are you now kissing
Are you demure missing me as I am listening
Cutting the fruit...peeling and slicing
when do we do the things that we were so splendidly dicing
How do you think that I make such wonderful treats
They appear in my mind
I sit here and perform my feat
The death of your torture
I wonder when you are so turned
That you come home to dinner best...hot served
I am the dame, the despondent the best wife
Hush now, I silence you with a kiss,
I strive...
be the best I can be
Best at making this pie
Making amends
Making men cry
Laugh out loud
em-pathetically sound
I think of the truth that you've set to me you lout
I know you think of me
I think of you also
Do come home soon
I must sleep and force you
Into submission upon my command
You sit at the table 
Not eat where you stand...
you Deserve best and This
I give you and then
Learn to respect me...for you are a man.

That Certain Part of the Male Anatomy

Today's society says,
"You're not a man
If you can't turn flesh to stone."
So drug after drug is manufactured
To make men feel like teens again.
"Bigger, longer, faster, stronger"
Is the motto of  this money game
With a pill, a caplet or capsule.
From porno stars to "Smiling Bob",
They convince man that drugs are the answer
To natural male enhancement-
All the while influencing addicts "once a day"
To ensure such lasting effects.

In yester years' society,
Abraham was dead in his body
And became the Father of many nations.
Sarah called him "lord" and made him feel
Better than any drug, and the benefit was hers, too.
In her old age she was satisfied with a child
And was blessed with laughter unspeakable.
She was his aphrodisiac, not a mistress with mandrakes.
Her spirit touched his emotions and effected his nature.
Maybe man could learn something from these saints
Instead of just desiring to be stiff and rigid.
Become addicted to love and each other.
"There is nothing to lose but to gain."

Ceremony of the Kiss

He gets to know her so they kiss.
He takes her home,
And they kiss.
He gives her a ring;
They kiss.
He lifts her veil;
They kiss.
He takes her home,
And they kiss.
He gets to know her as they kiss.

Changeling

I go away down I tell you
I go away down to the river
Leaving the vulgar world behind
I need to go down alone
Alone with the roots
That grown strong then old

I need to think about me
Will be a second me?
Will be one who will look
Like me before I'll return?

When the last drop of a star
Beginning to fill up the natural
Pond with news grasses
Where the meadow
Will laugh with bright color

I will call you I promise you at least
I will be in the last minutes
When I was ready to die.

Happy Anniversary.

    Today nineteen years ago,
     we said "Ido".
     This poem I dedicate, to you.
     The sun was shining then,
     as today,
      it was the fifth of may.
      Nineteen years, a long time,
      I'm so glad, your mine.
       I am not the easiest  man,
       it's true, but I do love you.
        We , had many obstacles,
        along the way, we came through,
        look at us today.
         The fifth of may, our special day.
         Happy anniversary.

Am I Shiny?

Cover up the blemishes
Hide the little blackheads
Smooth over the redness
Creating perfection
Covering emotion
With thick black glue
Darken in those brows
To match stained expectations
Rosy red cheeks
And sparkling pink lips
You’ll never see my deception
In a purely natural state
Dazzled by fluttering eyes
Seduced by sensual lips
Underneath the false
My plainness sneaks away

Temptress Re-Worked

Temptress.

How she pointed her demeaning put-down

Of a finger

How she made thy feel sunken

And insignificant 

When she took all power and emotion

To leave thy empty and floating

In the wasteland

Could she ever change from the succubus

We know her to be.



Her all mightiness 

She shone down on you

Not, how you wanted

But with a merciless fury.

Where does it come from?

That one can rise above another,

So easily.

Becoming dictatorial, omnipotent

And threatening.



Who is she?

Other then your worst enemy

How to be free

Of the dark cloud

And the women 

Who is lost

In the domination.

My Teachers

Mrs. Campbell rewarded me 
with time in the closet 
with her fur coat. 

Mrs. Cantor helped me to speak
when the words wouldn't come, 
and laughed at my jokes, 
setting an unfortunate precedent.  

Mrs. Whittman lived next door,
and never missed an opportunity
to come over to chat about
my test scores.

Mr. Lerch blew things up just for fun, 
kept a dead tarantula in a terrarium, 
and introduced me
to Pink Floyd.

Ms. Lamb married me and,
every day, helps me to 
see the good in 
everything.

Delightful Dream

“Delightful Dream”

a lifetime of joy’s heartwarming
effervescent smiles,

a portrait of timeless wonder’s
wide-eyed innocence,

an infinite treasure of forever’s
breathtaking memories,

an everlasting hope of happiness’
enchanting dreams,

a never-ending jewel of love’s
genuine promise,

a pure heart of brilliant starlight’s
ageless beauty,

a golden sparkle of divinity’s
glorious essence,

a wishful spirit of eternity’s
magnificent design,

a kindhearted soul of serenity’s
unbroken melody,

a sublime expression of nature’s
splendor without end.

Perfection

Natural beauty
a gift from above
born of God’s
boundless love,

Exquisite in form
adorned to please
soft as a gentle
summer breeze,

Mesmerizing eyes
silky smooth skin
an enchanting spirit
breathtaking within,

With every breath
stirring to the soul
a ray of sunshine
privileged to behold,

Priceless perfection
irresistibly unique
sensuous au naturel
beguiling physique,

A delicate flower
undeniably sublime
an angelic presence
inherently refined.

Jocelyn, secretly puzzelled 
over how she could marry a man named Morely. 
Morely the moaner she secretly called him. 

As most women do, 
she understood the perversities of men 
She made leeway for their impracticality, 
their visions, their unfulfillable dreams. 

She sometimes felt life would be better alone 
or with a pragmatic, well anchored female roomie. 
It was just too laste for that she was thinking 
as she stirred the pasta to keep it from sticking. 

She knew that Morely could be driven 
to do the dishes after the meal. 
Then they would drift off into the evening.

Anticipation

I anticipate a moment that has not yet come to pass,
don't worry my dear that time will be here soon.

We've both have gone through our own self proclaimed hell,
I believe we have learned from our mistakes and don't want to look back.
Some faults were forecast and some unexpected,
can't thank you enough for some of the things you've put me through 
as confusing as that may sound.

If actions speak louder than words than we're both living proof of how we grow,
not die at the mercy of those who would choose to manipulate us.
Both refusing to be a slave but yet serve each other and one other who is still 
young.

I wish for those who know us to respect and cherish what we really have,
not use it as a weapon.
Through desperate days of bitterness and chaos I only loved you and no one 
else.
Now I believe you know what kind of a person I really am. 
You cannot hide who you are anymore as everything you never wanted me to see 
has been exposed.

Consider it a blessing that our own internal suffering has turned into undying 
affection and understanding between us.
I speak another language that few can understand but I'm glad you get the gist of 
what I'm saying.

Wounded

Lonely and alone, single now with the children my only comfort and yet a reminder.
The divorce a tug of war between me and her for what once was mine, I thought.
My heart lies languid and still a deep dark mountain pool, without flutter or ripples.
The waves and white water emotions will come flooding in after dark.
Our little ones must not glimpse in me the ugly cuts and scars of your infidelity. 
 I force myself into our once cramped now too empty bed.
 I can now cry quietly in solitude for love and affection like a wounded animal.
I silently scream to be touched, to be reached for, and to be desired.
I miss you I still love you I would forgive you I still want you, Joe where are you?
I hide in the shadows of my despair, dream of killing her, torturing painfully and slowly?
I’ll be gouging out her eyes with one degrading glare a smile and a snicker.
I’m gutting her slowly with only the nightly beckoning of my little finger.
A tryst in the Sykes parking lot in the back seat of our car inches from your son’s safety seat.
Pass a silent gift a potential killer and ruin her womanhood and child bearing potential, almost taking her life.
Rip apart her family with whispered AM phone calls and PM come hither stares.
Strip her self-esteem and ego depositing them without remorse in a blender set to puree.
I would do to her all that she has done to me and more, I am lonely, alone, single now and only them to thank.
  

                                                                 Summer Gratias

My Queen

I eat of her impatiently, as if she was food for the gods or exotic food for the 
stars, the wind lavishly blows her scent through gardens, we relax-n-release 
tension, orgasming through the forest, I’ve beseem my queen and she befits 
her king, vintage-n-very expensive Japanese art covers our hearts, her gold 
crispy succulent thighs, coincides with her backside, both thicker than any 
Indian tribe, her vibe changes the colors of my eyes, God blew her soul into 
my soul, so together we live our lives, where we age, but our lover never gets 
old, she stays warm 4 she never gets cold, I eat of her flesh, the tender meat 
of her breast, her inner self, I renew her health, I share her breath, I inhale her 
best, I never exhale for death is next, for I will eat of her soul-n-spirit, for we 
would have left behind our flesh, I love you more than any emotion can 
express, more than any tongue can confess, may 4 ever together our souls 
rest, I’m full of your flesh, I belong in your soul, I belong with your spirit, I’m 
intoxicated off cups of your blood, God bless Sable, I eat of your flesh, 4 you 
nourish me best. 

Excuse me I just
Belched, Amen, God Bless

If a kiss were a drop of water,

I will be there for you,
Always and forever...

Once Upon a nightmare

As I close my eyes I linger slowly to sleep.
As I fall into this world of dreams.
I see you face once again.
There you are once more in my arms as we dance.
Your lips press softly upon mine as the passion flares.
Once more our song plays in the background.
Once more I sweep you off your feet.
So light as we dance upon the floor.
Our eyes meet the song comes to an end.
I place a rose in long beautiful hair.
Your smile is like a gift that warms my smile as it spreads upon your face.
Your eyes change color from the glare of the moon as they shine.
To hear your heart as it sings in a loud song as I melt.
Once more a kiss upon your lips before I awake.
But to open my eyes an realize its too late. 
Waking up in disapointment to see you aren't by my side.
To only cry and wish I still had you here.

The House That Jack Never Built

Plans as solid at the foundations of the house
They’d live in the caravan, sure it was only temporary
A house so big, that all of their family might fit.
That family never did get bigger, only smaller
A quietus ill-deserved

He started in earnest, cement mixed, bricks placed
But then she got sick and sicker still
No more bricks were ever stacked and no family born
He lives in the caravan alone now
That was the house that Jack never built

Leaving Him in '98

I broke something precious;
smashed Ming against the door;
trampled on shards of shattered vow;
unnerved, I ask to go.

Release me from your want,
from cloying, needful coils;
let me run against the current;
please, I ask to go.

This guilt will not contain me;
still your tears will stain my heart;
I loved you once for kindness;
killed with such, I ask to go.

Two Souls

Everyone is a  many sided personality
and it doesn't depend on your mentality
if you want to meet another soul
so that to be together as a whole;
with your characters,deeds and actions
come together to a certain perfection,
like diamonds polishing each other,
like diamonds sparkling together
reverberate in each others soul,
live together and play one role.

A Widow's Melancholy

A mood as dark as a winters midnight
Haltingly adrift, she is rudderless 
Bound to a coastal route
As she nears the quay, she cries out
But emits no sound
As strong currents
Guide her soul
To deeper depths
And perils 
Where light has no importance
A salient angle away and afar
She collapses in upon herself, like the Black Hole
Black does not describe its murkiness
She is lost to humanity

Younger days.

  Cooking breakfast,
   peeling vegetables,
   to pay the rent,
   in my younger days ,
   that's how my time was spent.
   Some times washing plates,
   working from early till late,
    never having time, to think straight.
    When the working day was done,
   it was time to have some fun.
   My mates and I would hit the town,
   eyeing the girls all around.
   We danced to impress,
   at least we tried our best.
  T o Micheal Jackson , we danced,
  glancing at the girls ,thinking please
  give me a chance.
   The answer was all ways the same,
   they didn't want to know my name.
    Was my after shave too strong,
    or was my chat up line all wrong.
    Either way what the reason be,
    I finally found a girl,
    who smiles with me.

i wish you a good day

the spill outwards of  a new day
the waterfall

what and where have you been?
the trials and tribulations-
are you so removed from me?
do the rocks of a shallow bottom
prevent you from
being my hero
from diving therein?

does one speak with an unhinged tongue?
do we come back
together ?

like pieces of the puzzle
do we grip one another with
uncertainty?
just to say 
goodbye!

so
once when we get it again ...
we realize
our fleeting
moment ...

i love everyone
and as usual,
i'll spill over the edge -

let the intensity be
the lava in my mind

goodbye
and
good  luck

I Like Her

Her eyes…
When I stare into her beautiful eyes
I get mesmerize.
Her smile…
When I see her smile 
My stomach flutters.
Her hands…
The touch against mine
I don’t want to let go.
She’s beautiful.
Inside and out
Every second with her
I’m at a happy state
When she’s near 
There is no worry
It’s weird though
I don’t know if it’s too soon
Am I falling to fast?
But there’s just something about her.
I guess I just like her.

Masked Man

I remember that night so long 
ago yet it feels as if tonight. 
You strolled into the room 
music was playing. 

A boy not all man yet and 
you were in no hurry had 
no worry was just out 
for the evening. 

You stole away with 
my heart that night under 
the warm July skies 
with that provocative smile. 

We walked awhile for a mile or 
so and learned all the things 
that made each of us tick. 

You were laid back and 
I was so mellow. 
We came and went well 
together back then. 

You were wild and untamed 
I was gentle and bridled 
in your cowboy spell. 

I fell totally for you that 
night masked man. 
But you were wild and 
so untamed like a 
bronco. 

You wanted to roam 
I wanted a home for 
two. 

July nights greet me 
now with your provocative 
smile in the warm breezes 
I shiver and quiver so 
longing still for you 
masked man. 

I watch the direction 
you rode out into 
that night. 
My heart rides out 
every now and then 
to see if you... 
remember too. 


This Saturday December 15th I am making memories on my life big time My birthday and now
My wedding day. No Name change the masked man came home to stay {Micheal}  sorry for all
the time away these past few weeks been wedding planning. With Christmas and Holiday tasks
and now the wedding  it takes most of my time.  Will catch up commenting all your

An Early Morning Summons

On a cloudless morning
I awoke to the incessant pounding on my door.
A firm voice on the other side.
A stranger calling my name.
He repeats his call.
Looking out, I see his stripes,
Boots shining brightly,
crisply pressed uniform.
Dread fills my soul
with trembling fingers
I unlock the door.
He asks for me by name.
I confirm.
With tears in his eyes
He tells me the worst.
Of how sorry he is to inform.
Of how I should be proud.
How our country has lost another
proud soldier in this fight.
I say thank you, tears fill my eyes
and I wonder how
I will tell her wife
that has no rights.

Forever HellO Never GoodBye

Forever HellO Never GoodBye. 
She has warned me in her way. 
Time can take me death can temporarily claim me. 
When my body has determined to sleep forever. 
And she comes to me a ^V^iolet growing in the wind. 
Dropping her pollen on my topsoil, 
for the bees to discover and spread. 
Never GoodBye eye did not tell her that, 
not once did we ever say it. 
Just later gater and later tater, 
and see ewe after while. 
I have something more to tell her, 
just in case this is the last one, the final poem. 
Eye kiss the ground she walks on. 
The sky above her,and the everywhen she goes.

here goes. 
Eye love ewe.

Another blow-up.

If they knew

Watching his son build a castle
Watching his wife as she laughs at the ocean
What would he do if they found out?
If only they knew

That he fathered another child
How there once was with another woman
Not a wife, just a partner
If only they knew

Would his wife still stand beside him
Would his own son let his dad tuck him in
Would they move away from this nightmare
Move away from what they become

Would he ever tell them?
Could he face this battle alone
Would he want to take back what he did?
Did he really regret what he had done?

Kevin Costners' - Dragonfy

       It was a love so profound
Even the death of his wife could not keep her spirit bound
       She did everything she could to contact him from the other side
So across the world he traveled with her as his spiritual guide
       He held fast to his intuition even when he could have died
And with tears in his eye
       He discovered he had a baby girl with a birthmark on her ankle of a dragonfly!

       A man can't help but to wonder about the love his wife had for him;
If only I could find the love they shared between them!



*Dragonfly starring Kevin Costner is one of my favorite movies!  I urge everyone to go 
watch it. Get the DVD.

Gods Christmas Gift

It was one of those times; one of those sincere discussions;
She told me about my fathers words to her when he was on his death bed.
What he asked her may seem funny to some;
What he asked her was to make sure I had a warm jacket and shoes every winter.
At the time I was already in my forties but I guess it didn’t matter to him.

Then we talked about the time we walked in to his hospital room;
My father immediately said he was confused.
I asked him “Dad do you know who I am”?
He said yes I do but why are you so old and she’s so young;
He was pointing at my wife Susan; but I knew it wasn’t her he saw.

He was seeing my mother long passed; here’s the thing about that;
I saw that my wife had the same spirit as my mother years before.
We all believe my mother was there to take him and who better to use as a catalyst.
I never had a chance to see my mother but I know her; she lives in me and is part of me.
I couldn’t see her right then but I could feel her and I could see Susan too.

As we talked we both had tears in our eyes and I think we were both a bit overwhelmed;
I could see how lifetime experiences can never be forgotten or dismissed.
So I asked her why she betrayed me like she did;
And that I could maybe forgive her if I could just understand why.
When she spoke I heard truth and I finally understood why.

So I forgave her and accepted the circumstances and the part I played in it all;
To what end remains to be seen but the pain seems to have been lifted from me.
As we broke the conversation off I began to reflect on the entire topic;
There were no definitive conclusions but what I did feel was;
My Father and my Mother had come to see me for Christmas.

Call me crazy, tell me it’s wishful thinking; even say I’m delusional;
I saw it, I heard it and I felt it; it happened and I won’t be denied.
I learned to be a real man from the pain I suffered;
My ego and sex no longer dominate or motivate my relationships;
And God in his mercy gave me the best Christmas ever

Love Came Softly

Love came softly with a touch
On my hand and face.

Love came softly with a look
All shy and laughing eyes.

Love came softly with a question
'Will you go with me'?

Love came softly with patience
When I couldn't be with you.

Love came softly with time
The time it took for me to see
That I had found everything I ever wanted in you.

Love came softly
And filled my world with song.

Childbirth

You have consummated the dream
upon its fertile mind            have given birth
your Sons are to be Kings for ruling in the earth
like life I wish that we would never part
our connection like the beating of one heart
 
because I have believed your heart was true
therefore did I give mine               permanently to you
You have shown me      a love of Sons of Men
not of his clothing         but what he hides within
you didst reveal this                   by your own right hand
did speak soft words until     we could understand
You saw not my skin                or what one outside see
you gazed within             looked upon the real me
 
Enfolded in your arms just like a child
your forgiveness and tender mercies mild
where you hold us until each of us can hear
understand completely the Words spoken in our ear
 
Love should have been the first thing
you met when you were born
the warm embrace which followed
when from wombs comfort torn
 
Cradle me my Beloved in your arms
hold at a distance all of my alarms
I want to walk with you 
until there's endless days
seek the crown of creation
and understanding of his ways
pleasant are the days I spend with you
my Lord , just master of his house
to you my one only
is my heart espoused
Like a mighty warrior you have mounted up
the valor of your deeds have filled my every cup
without you near my heart is empty still
but cries with its distress
until with you my life instill
 
As  bird you gathered us beneath your wings
your endearment descends like mountains streams
there within the wilderness were we broken
until we received knowledge of the promise spoken
 
Songs of the Kings

The Gift of You All

I have some things I would like to say 
Many of you have known me for a couple of years
You have watched me struggle, change and grow
I pretty much share everything about myself
The guilt I carried when I first got here
Was such a burden
I didn’t know how people would take me at first
You have got to admit I’m about as open and honest
As a person can be about themselves
For I wanted to be free of who I was
And I knew the truth would set me free
What I didn’t know is how people would feel about someone like me
And to be honest I expected to be ask to leave
And I must admit as I sit here tonight
That I was surprised at the open acceptance I was given
The love and understanding compassion that I was given
Truly shows what wonderful people that all of you are
I’m so blessed that the Lord led me here
I don’t think I would have made it without all of you
You encouraged me to see the things in myself
That I would have never seen on my own
I was struggling with forgiveness when I got here
And all of you not only forgave me you loved me
And showed me true respect
For the man I was so desperately trying to be
You motivated me to learn
About myself, poetry, life, love and the Lord
Tonight I was talking with my wife
And we were talking about all of you
And she ask me to do her a favor
She asked me to thank all of you for seeing the good in me
And for helping her teach me
To see the good in myself
She asked me to thank you for helping me grow
By giving me examples of the good that resides with-in
And teaching me how to be the man I am for her
There is nothing that my wife ask of me that I won’t do
And I am very proud to do this for her
Because next to the Lord, my wife and our family
You guys sure do hold your place in my heart
We just want to thank you
For the gift of you all

Efil

Born so old, so fragile, so wise
Born alone into the world
You miss your wife
She passed without pain
I'm sorry old man, that you left her so lonely
Shuffle through the corridors
She used to sit there and knit
Forget it she's gone
Cry at both of your pains
Throw that cane away old man, your arthritus is gone
Get back to your house
Your children are coming
They're all grown up now
Tell the wife to bring some drinks
You're young old man, but you're over the hill
Go sit in your office
Pushing papers for the man
Your teenagers are reckless
So don't be home late
Keep it together old man, they're just at the age
Slept in again today
You shouldn't be late
With a mortgage to pay,
A wife and a baby
It's okay old man, they aren't babies for long
Come home from the bar
To your bachelor suite
A little cologne sprayed
Maybe you'll get lucky
Take her home old man, she's had a little too much
You stole the car
Not old enough to drive
Try to be everything
But you can't be a hero
You're not a kid old man, but your voice is still cracking
Wait it out now
They're only bullies
Don't tell the teacher
They'll take your lunch money again
Walk it off old man, you're just not big enough
You can cry all you want
It won't make her come
She turned off the moniter
She couldn't stand you anymore
Take it easy old man, you can't even change yourself
You shouldn't move around so much
It makes her so queasy
Just a few more months
And you'll meet the world
Enjoy the womb old man, life only gets harder

How to end Love with Shock and Awe

So hot are the clear pale blue skies, 
I wipe my brow looking at my estranged love.
Is the wind blowing 
or is it just her words
that are being propelled at me ?

There is lust in my eyes, 
staring at her
with her full lips 
begging to be kissed,
and remembering how the sweat mingled 
between our bodies 
when we made love.

Her words have been bouncing off me
it is just the lust daze.
She thinks I'm taking a deep breath or two,
but I'm taking in her words,
it makes me strike a curious pose
and I get an odd look.

Listening to the latest scheme,
I inject my standard objections,
making her pause with the evil eye.
Her voice leaps to me, 
like a cat
and her smile seems to caress me
with lovely romantic visions.

Reality imposes its grip on me,
making me wince for a moment,
it is as if I've been sickened.
Looking into her eyes 
I catch a glimpse of hell within
and silently pray to my Savior.

I'm about to give in,
giving her my best smile of course,
when my lips part issuing profanities,
that I have not used in a long time.
My words are shells fired 
from the cannon that I've become,
it shocks her into nothingness,
her footsteps fade away
and I'm in awe at what I've finally done.

The Diamond Split


  The Diamond Split 
A Jeweler once let me watch his work. 
He set the stone in a vise grip place and then. 
He took no aim or warning just hit the thing a good sharp whack 
and then he showed me how it split off to the side not in the center 
like he had wanted. 
 HE blamed it then on me for being there to watch him. 
The  moral of this story poem is the love inside of me. 
The hatred of the lost love has caused a rent in me. 
My damaged heart still loves ewe but not perfectly. 
It is  not the fault of ewe for ewe are perfect every day. 
The diamond split a little to the left of center place. 
The heart eye have was good enough when eye was very young. 
To find my purple flower in the yard and then the place. 
The place eye stay inside of me when ewe come to me eye go. 
Please take this unperfectness and make it work for love.

LAST POEM

It comes down to it, spring. Let us hear it
Or to make a dignity retreat from a great lover who ran away.
I am here to thank you for being a woman
Through those five years
Thank you for giving me a wonderful boy with his eyes of yours
Thank you for creating a timing dream 
That never would be over in our hours of ease and remembering
Thank you for all God’s duty who taught us hate and love
By the quivering spasm of orgasms a declining master
That was hard to please toward the last moment of bliss.
Thank you for being a good mother toward the end,
God knows why, you try to make it but you failed miserably
Because the limitation of a new sensation of uncertain feeling.
Thank you for letting my boy and me go.
Thank you.

Do I Fit in Your Future

I’m not sure how to ask this,
But I’ve got to know,
So I’m just going to ask
Do I fit in your future?
Do you see me with wrinkles,
Still believing that I’m as beautiful
 As the first day we met?
Do you I fit in your future?
Do you see yourself loving me
No matter who or what
I may possibly become?
Do I fit in your future?
Knowing I may never
Be exactly what you
May want me to be?
Do I fit in your future?
Even if you may not
Really even see
A future for yourself?
Do I fit in your future?
It’s probably a lot
Of me to ask of you
But still I’ve got to know
Do I fit in your future?

MY NEW WOMAN

Fun for Marriage

We were in those universal battles of fingertips and of massages
and of hips and of erotic urgency, which she etched
reddish my mind to pound upward to heaven,
tearing my heart in pieces from bone to meaty load
and from the top of my head felt ready to spin off
into a lake of Star War & Superwoman!

I am not a fool, you know,
I bore down on her like a fish thrusting my body and ramming 
my bone into her soul of the ocean and I stood there shaking
where a gaze of pleading desperation in her eyes has told me I am so special;
pushing up from the bed the tigress, I balanced
in a squatting the monstrous in position, but when I was ready to plow
into her dream this physical attraction
that we had for each other, as this damned morning alarm
called up the morning after, and I vanished myself
into a hilary face from my new pregnant lady!

Lady

Lady,

You are an angel--
A Beauty as pure as a little girl's tears,
a dog's last loving nuzzle, an old man's cry--
With this pitchfork I play I hum a tune...
And I hope the wind catches it and tells you for I cannot.
For where you go, I will not follow--
I go down, not up


                                  Heather
                                  12/23/'13

Desire, so simple

Sunset rolling on through the sky,
Haze, what a truly magnificent sight.
To look ahead on the dusty track,
I see the outline of the home that is mine.
Never a thought to look behind me.
One foot in front of the other,
even closer to my desires.
Rubbing my eyes to clear the tears,
overwhelming feeling of pure emotion.
On one side of me, a lake so hypnotic,
shaded gently around the edges
with pine scent trees.
Red and yellow hues colour the sky,
highlighting the thin outline of clouds.
I gaze to the other side I see an assortment of beauty.
Dense woodland half covering a mountain range.
To see pure white snow on peaks,
but feeling the comfort of the warm sun on my face.
As I approach the place I now call home,
I sit on the rocking chair and face the setting sun.
Listening to the blend of the crickets playing the chorus,
my children laughing, leading each verse.
My wife next to me composing the harmony. 
As I smile with a glass of Pinot Noir in hand,
I look over to my wife and see our lives endless.
Sun having set, there is no orange tint in the sky.
I vast blanket of black overhead with millions of diamonds inset.
How I feel at peace with my heart secured here.
Worry, a word that has no meaning.
Never having to wake from this lucid slumber 
Knowing how blessed I am to have my dream made real.

As I… travel alone, I know that
You will be with me in spirit, my love
Even though… All the storms that come my way

This lion must survive the wilderness
This lion has got to win! So please…
Wait for me, I beg of you!
I promise you’ll be mine, so please believe in me!

Love is.

It's a funny thing love
it can make you float
high above.
It can also bring 
you back down,
with a thud on the ground.
Ask me what love is,
I will tell you this.
Love is all around.
Love is for a man.
A woman and the baby,
she is carrying.
Love is the things they
do together,
like taking walks in all
kinds of weather.
Love is for life, and what
it has to offer.

with a smile that lights up the sky
so tell me why have I abused you
turned your days to blue
no one taught me how to love til i met you
so I am in your debt
for what you have given me
I will never forget

Black, His Story

Brutally battered and beaten
Long, long way from home
Aching inside hurts more than lashes and reaping
Children and wife long gone
Kept in chains, freedom done gone

Hide! Hide! No time for larking
Ink black nights, and days of running
Shouting, shooting, dogs a-barking.

Stop by the river, wade in the water
Tubman sends canoe and more kinsmen come
Over the river to Canada’s shelter
Reunited with children…, and wife done come
Yes!  Freedom done come.  Freedom done come

Paradox

Seeking therapy for my self created problem,
Antidepressants to help deal with the pain of all that's ever happened,
Now no place to call home.

I think and think of what I've done wrong,
But did I really do anything wrong to get me where I am today?
Is being honest a crime so that I would be cast out of house and lives?
All the while suffering and despair cloud my mind,
I can't make a rational decision to save my life.

The one that I love does not love me anymore,
I do not know if I've really changed that much, 
the perception of what I say and do has.
My future is uncertain and it's hard to think about anything else.

I desire to be loved and in my struggle return that love for which I hope one 
person will have for me.
How long till I can feel this?

Hoping any decision I make will not be scrutinized due to opinion.
Wishing that all this pain and suffering of being separated from my wife and child 
will cease.
This paradox unfortunately is reality.
Created not just by myself but also by the one I love.

Event horizon to a singularity sucking all life and thoughts from what I am.
What can I do to end this turmoil?
So much life and beauty in this world.
So much death and destruction in this world.

Craving to be content and happy at the same time seems to be so far fetched at 
this point in my life.
Yet I must do what I can to remain optimistic.
Oh sun, oh moon, oh stars and mother earth I beg you to take me back to the 
origin of all creation.
That I might become a drop of dew or a cloud in the sky or a snowflake. 
Recycled, recirculated but never feeling dead inside. At least being these I never 
cease to exist for all know who I am.

But now it seems, all that I've shared my life with,  want to forget me.
And being forgotten is better than not existing at all.

The May Pole And The Taffy Pull

Sorrow came to me and cleared my eye.
Mye QYeen has NOT forgotten me,
But , OH , mye , whye , has she displaced me.
Could it bee that eye have angered HER , or 
Thoughts of me confuses HER ,
She has no chance to caht with me,
And so she tries to spare me the anguish.
Dance around the May Pole again,
Mye Qyeen  and do not weep so for all I have been,
I have just been missing ewe again,
Mye Pain is only heartbreak to bee mended,
By thy kiss ;
And when you aer at thy Taffy-Pull
Have fun and do no bent and do no worry,
Mye mind stays in a hurry and I worry all the day,
Searching for mye love.
Ewe aer a Snow White turtle dove,
And Pocahontus also,
And a mermaid in ewe heart,
And when Ragon Fly Comes,
To fly around ewe, remember ewe
Aer still mye QYeen 
And Never Shall We Bee apart
Mye tears aer never salty.

Must Have Been You

What made me feel strong again?
What was taking me to the right place's?
What was leaving me feeling so loved at the end of each day?
What makes me happy to be alive when I wake each morning?
What gives me somthing to live for everyday?
What makes my heart beat steady and true?
What takes my breath away throughout the day?
What makes me try so hard to succeed?
What wish do I wish for every year on my Birthday?

    Learned all about
    The pains of love
      Years passed
          And then
 We found each other

    And proved that

Dave Percell

Dave Percell

Dave Percell was many men,
Many of them were meaningless.
Five faces we will talk of here,
Some of kindness, some of fear.

The first I will attest to
Rises with the morning dew:
With ruffled hair and smiling fun,
Dave Percell says, “Morning son!”

He tarries late and leaves for work
Fighting traffic in New York...
This face curses, absent mirth.
Just in time, he reaches the yard,
Steel beams rising, like windows barred.
Blue-collar friends Dave Percell has,
They leer at woman as they pass.

Saturday finds Percell’s son gone.
At a friend’s ‘till morrow’s dawn.
Dave's at home with the boy’s mom.
Beers are out, along with wine,
They strike a rhythm in no time.

Gentle he starts, as a rule,
But soon, his movements are cruel.
He gets angry and chokes,
Savoring the screams the action evokes.
Like a serpent Dave does strike,
Laughing at her screams of fright.

On Sunday, the sun does not rise
Behind a sea of clouds lies the bright prize.
The two souls awaken early,
His hair straight and hers so curly.
Dave Percell?s wife has a bruised face.
She puts on make-up, like a race.
Dave smiles, ignorant her pain.
They crawl to the car, through the rain.

At church early on that day,
They heard their good pastor say,
“You should never hate, rather pray.”
At that, Dave?s wife turned her head
And to God she silently said,
“LORD, take not Dave, but me instead.”

So now you know, the story’s been told
One forever new, yet ages old.
You’ve heard of Dave Percell and his life,
You’ve learned about his lovely wife,
You’ve listened to their marital strife.

“What did happen,” you may rightly wonder,
Well, just listen to the heavens’ broiling thunder,
You’ll sense the scrutiny Dave Percell’s under
You’ll know his fate, on Judgment Day... asunder.

I Know a Boy

I know a boy with more scars on his hand than he can understand 
It seems the worlds at his command to do his every demand 
But he doesn't use words  
Because words aren't as loud as his gun 

The shots fired into the night, the Bang of fright
, his hand clenched around it... tight 
He Thinks hes just trying to have a life hes making
But he sometimes forgets the lives hes taking 
The families hes breaking, the mother who's aching 
 
I know a boy with more things in his past than he cares to let last
He suppresses them, but they come back fast 
I'm there when they resurface
When they creep back up into his mind, Trying to find a way to unwind 
His control
They eat at his soul 
 
There is a boy who I love deeper than any sea
And that's not easy for me, I've been hurt before you see. 
But he has more scars on his hand than I could understand 
And with love in high demand 
I don't jump into the ocean, rather run my fingers through the sand. 
 
The sand and all its grain holds the entire oceans pain 
When the waves  beat at the shore until its broken and sore 
Oh you merciless sea
 Treats it's banks  the same way the world treats him and me 
We push back a wave that came rolling in,
 just to see a new one start up again
its his life... 
Filled to the brim with heartache and strife
But I understand him, like he understands the tip of his knife 
so maybe, one day
 he will make me his wife 
 
I love a boy with more scars on his hand than he or I can ever understand.

Sever not that silver thread that binds you heart to mine
  forget not my great love that set you all a flutter
Never deny the night that sealed our greatest vow

Join me in thanks to the most divine gift we now share
  as crimson rose I so sweetly place in your beautiful hair
  dream that embraced us into it's heavenly fold

A poem in a loving note that I left on my wife's pillow this morn..

Happy Women's Day

Nature’s first successful science project, 
The fate of the galaxy relies on the changing of your mind.

Curses and gifts.
 An uplifting redundancy surrounds the pronunciation
Of all your phases.

Kin to the world.
Keeping the earth well feed
With the fruit of your consideration.

In love with all things young and old. 
From high valleys and low roads,
You display many moods and modes,
I try my best to play catch up.
Truth is I’m lost with or without you.

You leap to your feet for good luck,
Only to pass it to the next man.

A fan of peace and laughter,
Determined not spend life cornered by strife.
You stand for right. 
But no one understands your plite.

Do you know whom I speak of?

The person with the biggest smile, 
And the nicest compliments.
The one that will stay to help you clean after the party’s over.
That hardy cooker. That class act.
The one that got your back, no question about it. 
 
So who could it be?

It is she!
That woman,
That mother,
That girlfriend,
That lover
That gay brother,
That best friend,
And cousin.


The ones you’ve borrowed time,
 Love, money, 
Space, ideas,
 And expectation from.

And since I never will be able to pay you back,
I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Happy Belated Mother’s Day!

Motivation

It is the sound of you wrapped in joy
The feel of you in known desire and passion unbounded
It is the way of your elegant tenderness
and forever caring

My arms aren't full of you yet
and my heart beats to your rhythmic path
I capture your beauty for scenery
And study your curves for inspiration

Defined in positive trusting truth
and brilliant warming delight
I run the miles in between us
You are my touching, loving, compassionate motivation

insatiably saturated

the seepage into the matrix of the bone
the saturation of the nerves
the brain sweat
the dreams of static - caught between channels
then
the compatibility of the senses
the easy talk
the soft afternoons
the ease of knowing you are loved
the myriad that comes with all this
the dreams of being a sensitive monkey
then
the questions
the invariables start cropping up
the new information - not so new
the seeds of doubt begin to germinate ... slowly
so
work on the faith that she won't stalk you
pray she doesn't show up to the place of your employment
now off meds for 2 weeks
and came by 
just to start an argument
in front of everyone
behaving like a wolverine-attorney
with claws and vicious remarks
then
the idea that this should never occur-
we need to dream with vigorous salt and vinegar
because dreaming makes things happen
the bone becomes less brittle
the nerves settle
the brain sings again
the best things are always half off
you have to work a little harder to take off the rest

love feeds an insatiable fire
a big orange caldron of hot swirling clouds of Jupiter's atmosphere persuasion
the feral nature of instant sex
sometimes ...
in a somnabolist's daydream

I came to say, I cannot stay, I know I must be going, in the royal unreal realm 
of simple selfish self, shedding/shredding of the u/me/my shydom charade of people poor of word, thought, premise and promise, but lay waste to words
more of toiled terdom, lest of prostrate para phrase, some ill of chance, some driven by mere sillo cir-cum-stance, but yet all speak of shillshock silly ro ma nance. When I read your 
words, and see your shallow thoughts, I think of co intentions derived, so fleshily fractured in lieu of rectal information that I see only all slow contrived, love lived unrealized.
You can take yourself, so important, so reliant that no one else can u be, yet when alone you pray, your wishes seem to say, the love you've seen to sow, is what you've slain and all your own is forgiven forever and a day. Turn back your so so speak space indifferential don't ever slack to remember your place in loves real time rhyme, when you learned that just to love is as good as to be loved, unless it is meant to be by a willful non being, guilty to of all that is knowing, not knowing unforgiving un less you 
thinkthank you could, be awful good and not pre pursue a moment that all is said in non normal nomenclature alphabet albeit I follow you in all of my instincts to let you gogo. I see all that is you and wallow in your everpresence of my own loud aloneness yet feau pause for your anoited
allowance of love forgiveness in our togetherness aplenty. When love ends
and couples cease to exist, where does love go??? When do u abandon "ship".

Do You Feel Me...

Teetering… 

on that prolific edge of mediocrity 

Groping… 

like some street-ravaged whore in the darkness 

Clinging… 

to that abstract formality of “us” 

Drowning… 

as you lie, complacent, in your nothingness

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

Why Me?

I've often wondered, why me?
You know, why am I so good looking?
My wife just rolls her eyes and smiles
I think that means she feels lucky to have me

But anyway, I often wonder, why me?
You know, why am I so darn smart?
My wife just shakes her head and grins
I think that means she admires my intellect
But I tell her it's okay, we can't all be geniuses

Oh well, I often wonder, why me?
You know, why am I the king of my castle?
My wife said, "Okay that's enough already"
I think she means this poem is over

Pondering Pride & Love

I realized that I so often write on the beauty of love
The wonderful joy that it brings into our lives
But as we all know, there is also the other side
The side when two people disagree on something
Be it big or be it small, it has the power to become large
The little things can destroy love
Like frozen water has the ability to split hard rock
The relationship between my wife and I, have faced -
Obstacles the size of the Grand Canyon 
It is of my belief that pride is the worst enemy of love
And in all honesty pride is but a deceptive illusion, the father of lies
Please don’t get me wrong we have the right to have pride
In things we do and who we are
But it is imperative for us
To control that pride and not let it control us
Don’t fall prey to the illusion that you are better than others
We are all created equal; each of is a child of God
If I may offer some advice regarding a relationship
That will help yours nourish and grow
Put your pride in the one you love above your own
Because self pride or ego if you will, is the devils tool
In fact that is what got him cast out of heaven
I hold my wife in higher regard than I do myself
And she feels the same about me
And that makes it very easy for us to communicate
Which of course is the key to a healthy relationship
What she says means more to me that what I say
What I say means more to her than what she says
And that makes it very easy for us to stand on common ground
In admiration of each other

Forever-Part 3

We get off the plane and smell the lovely air. Hawaii. One of the most beautiful places. I look at you and smile. "This place is beautiful," I say, spinning around. "Yes, it is," you say and pull me close. "I love you," I say. I love you too," you say and kiss me. Hand in hand we walk into the setting sun.

The sun's poking through the shades in our room. "Good morning beautiful," you say when I open my eyes. "Good morning," I say and smile. "I've got a surprise for you," you say and smile. I look at you questionably. "Just get dressed and I'll show you." "Okay."

You take my hand and lead me down to the beach. "I heard you've always wanted to do this," you say and smile. You point to two goals. My face lights up. "Sand soccer," I say happily and look at you. You kiss me and smile, "I figured you'd like it." We walk down to the two goals and we'r e put on a team. We play for hours and hours.

When the game is over, we sit on the sand by the shore. "That was fun," I say and look at you. "Yeah, it was," you say and lean in and kiss me. "I love you," I say as you warp your arms around me. "I love you too," you say and smile. We watch the sun set on the beautiful sea before we head back to our room.

The next day we surf. We surf for hours. "This is great baby," you say as we sit on our boards. "Yeah," I say and smle, "you must really like doing this," I say and brush a srand of hair from your face. "Yes," you say and you lean in and kiss me.

Accidental Spouse

as with any story it began with
a blissful start borne of twain
innocent hearts aptly swooning
in a hapless saga of cowardice,
a strange exhibition of clueless
ever misfortunate dysfunctional
souls, each winning the lottery
in a marriage never intended,

a union tested and found wanting
in life’s uncompromising journey
of an inept incidental husband
enhanced by a fortuitous wife,
both indulging a vacuous fantasy 
an unrelenting wanton odyssey
giving rise to causeless miracles
of carefree unreal expectations,

a fairy tale of naïveté between
of a husband who won’t lead
and a wife who won’t follow
sharing a voluptuous way of life,
wherein time’s eager trickster’s
misleading subliminal promises
shipwrecks their felicitous dream
turning it instead into a nightmare,

what once was a sacred romance
truly bathed in desire’s afterglow
a cast of lot’s in love‘s shadow is 
but an impermanent factor of life,
of a wayfarer forever wild at heart
embarking on an lifetime adventure
a masculine journey of discovery
into the deep secret to a man’s soul,

one ordinarily lovingly subservient
not consumed by selfish intentions
of desperation shallow and hollow,
desirous of unconditional love but is
forever disappointedly emasculated
a distorted convenient afterthought
of a captivating bride yet unwilling
an enjoined spouse dutifully tamed,

a captive spurned by a closed spirit
oft disrespected ne’er able to break
free of hurtful feelings of brokenness
of a lover effete oft held in contempt,
wherein the story inexplicably ends
a husband unlearned of the mystery
of a woman’s soul separated of an 
accidental spouse o’er yonder reigns

Sportsmans Wife

 
Ladies, if you marry a sportsman that loves the outdoors be ready for some beautiful gifts
On your birthday, a new rifle or fishing pole, how about a bass boat or four-wheeler on your anniversary
Ladies gets smart! Don't wait until you have seven rifles, three shotguns, two bass boats, and two four-wheelers, a Jeep and a canoe
If you want a Coach or Dooney and Burke, new dress, or perfume go out and buy them a month before Christmas, birthdays, Easter, Valentines, and etc.
Show them to your hubby, give him a big hug and kiss for it thank him for the nice thoughtful gifts!

What Is It

Its a feelin so deep
I no longer weep
Your my need to life
Your love runs though my veins
As if I was on concain
Wait.. shouldnt use love so fast
Cuz what if it dont last
For you I'm willing to wait and see
MY heart is young
And you got me sprung
I'm so caught up in you
I'm missing school
You're all I dream
I hope we remain
I want this feelin to last forever
I hope you aint lovein another
Your wife will soon be me
For you'll be my husband
I'll carry your seed as long as you please
Is it love?
What is this feeling I feel so deep?
Is it you or me?
For you I'll wait and see
If your wife to be is me..

Beside You

Nestled closely curved
Like two spoons well kept in a drawer
I lay beside you every night
Drifiting towards the dreamtime
Pressing the alien softness of your female flesh
Filling hand with its gentle weight
Enfolding into your perfect curvature
Feeding on your warmth, your living heat
As it rises through your skin
To cross over into mine.

These are the moments
The downtime after loveplay
When our sexes settle into one another
Crossing the in-between of days spent together
As an undistinguished One; the Human Beast
Who fears the dark
Who needs its mate
For strength and calm
And reasons to get up again.

We curled together so
By the guttering fire
In the frigid cave.

We'll curl together so
By the guttering fires
Of dying suns
As we cross the eternal dreamtime
Of the Universe,
Asleep.

Mother To Be

what a day to think of names
and what silly days ahead filled with games
I will play peek a boo
and think of your mother and you
yet that is nine months away
so long yet so short
for many plans await
diaper bins and a baby gate
the magic of motherhood
is not quite understood
at least by men
we haven't a clue
but nail and hammer and some glue
in readiness we will build it for you
we owe a great big thanks for all that is a mother
for on God's green earth filled with gems there is no other

Lady Madness

Lady Madness how dost thou lie in mine bed?
How darest I allow thee upon my honor tread?
Fair Lady, Fair Madness, drop the dagger from the mind!
Remember once we were the honorable kind?
Oh how hath we slain the king? Lest some restless

To hell with Hecate and her faces three!
I love the fair Lady!  Rest upon my cheek.
Perhaps you will return to sanity should you meet God in sleep.

Courtney

Let me introduce you to my wife
a woman I have known most of my life
21 years and counting
and to her I am constantly returning
for in the 21 yrs I have known her
all others are just a blur
her beautiful face
and her subtle grace
hair of spun gold
and a bust line so bold
for this is a story that needs to be told
We wed in 97
oh wedded bliss I was in heaven
but I was use to hell
and thats how I treated her not very well
in 2000 she left me she did
but in 04 
I was back in the door
twice we are married
and the toll she has tarried
for once again I am a fool
drowing her in misery an emotional pool
but to her I say
from here on out til my last day
for what you are owed I will repay
just kep you another day

Picture My Life

Picture my life
As the foot of a tree
In autumn,
Where golden leaves are 
Faces that come and go, 
Swept this way and that
As the wind of fate pleases.

And among the litter a stone;
The one thing immovable, constant.

That is you.

White Smoke

I remember that day so clear
the white smoke lofting through the air
fumes from your past 
caught up to you at last
for all your sins you couldn't out run
slower than a gun
no mess to clean up
for the mess was contained in your cold black heart
you placed your disappointments on all those around you
you walked in a shade of red your favorite hue
your verbal assualts locked an entire family in fear
and left a nine year old between a scream and a tear
all your faults where placed on my shoulders
all your dreams you were to lazy to fufill
became my nightmares
of all the things you did you did them all wrong
but one thing you finally did right
you cleansed yourself to purity
surrounded by the white smoke
you chose to induce your own death
and with that said I can finally rest in piece
now that your gone
I remember you how I want as a loving wife and mother
than to live with the reality that you failed me
and our child
your  days of tyranny are over your days of wild
are but nipped in bud
resonating with a long thud
as you finally met your fate.

TAKE OFF

As I open the door,
The smiles in your face
Makes me throw my bag to the floor
As you move straight to take off my lace.

As I sit to rest,
You overcome my tiredness
By playing your hands closer to my chest
You take off my heart from its sinfulness

As you unbuckle my tie
I hurriedly take off the first button
Your innocent face does not make me shy
With respect and lust, you unknowingly take off your Acton

As I desirable bring mine
You share with me by bringing yours
Love, faith and hope can be continued in our love line
And out of generosity, we make ours.

Longest summer of my life

Its been too long;
I NEED to feel your arms around me,
Your fingers tagled with mine,
My lips on yours,
Your hand in my hair.
I dont ever want to leave
Your cherished embrace;
Im so happy and complete
When Im with you
I feel so alive;
You make me forget everything
But you
For a few precious hours.
I miss those nights
I want them back
I miss you so much.

Compeyson

We were perfect together
Inseparable
Night and day
Two blackened petals of the amaranth
Wizened, rotted, but eternal

A white angel, a waxwork skeleton
Gliding up the road
Towards the wedding knell
And by the altar 
Before the eyes of God
A letter, with your scrawled apology across it.

Rushing to the phone now
Dialling your number with spinster’s fingers
I cry
Don’t leave me

“The number you are calling no longer exists”

Then I remember
You faded long ago
The dress has yellowed
The clocks have stopped
The feast has rotted

I’m talking to myself.

LIBIDO SOUND

Near the fairest light of the autumn, examining
Our wedding of keepsake photos book, we echoed the souls
On each pose when it was taken in Morningside Height
Back to 1969s.

In pursuit from the side of the St. Church 
Crystal's wall, New York was a Paradise! The smiles 
Melted away by a lotus ritual-promises seeing 
All as the blue dots of the heaven sky.

We were happy back there. Having
Our wetted eyes preaching perfectly on lines,
From the whiten dress and the sailing Hands mine,
In black and tie walking along Harlem's blue!

Turning around, the bridled group;
With its ordinary and gossip smiles
Across their faces. From the one
Hundred minutes, Priest Toms told us
All sickness and glows would be gone.

Worldly all had passed by. The cloudless sky,
The long,  long spring day has started
To shadow off. And we see on each thing,
Our moon-mind peaks dark! I was a jazz singer that time.

It's that each time we see these photos
Before our eyes the matured smile 
Is just a hanging dream.

How the savor years, the white branches
Of ideas and words, could possible 
Have accumulated too many springs ahead?
Begin to hang down our energy, scattering
Here and there, which runs completely
Out of sight.

And now, it inlaid within a bitter
Eyebrow. Without the moist moonlight
On how it has begun.

Having seen the photos at least 
For a few minutes or so, we behold the new panorama.
Nothing fallen off into the thick
And dark spring. Because oh yes! 
Because we are already there.

 Kiss my handy and my smiley place 
My food is hard to chew and so eye swallow most of it 
As eye am learning how to love 
Please just love me anyway 
Make my child within me smile

As eye am learning 
To move the bigger pieces out 
To be completed 
To be much less disgusting

To seem almost a human 
Make my learning fun

Make me love 
Learning love 
Make me learn 
Trying hard

Step inside my head

The instructor said:
Right a poem expressing yourself
using Langston Hughes’ first poem 
as your model.

When my mom had me it was just me and her. 
We went through hard times yet she never let our 
problems effect me. Now that I have grown up
I see things differently. I can understand when there is 
a problem and know when things aren’t right.

Now I’m just looking for my chance to shine. I am preparing
to see the world through my own eyes. And it is hard. But I 
get through. Most kids my age are academically preparing themself 
for their future. They go to school and they learn but me I am creating 
mine.  My voice is my instrument and as long as I have it I plan to use it. 
My passion is singing and my heart is in performing but my money always
gets spent on shopping.

Yes I am a women and I was created to be of a helpmate to my spouse
but that doesn't mean that I am not human. Though I may have breast and
my hips may make the shape of my body different doesn't make you 
suprerior. I have a mind and I am an individual. I can think and 
make decision for myself, all while taking care of all responsibilty. 
I am your mother and your grandmother I was responsible for your up bringing.
Don't belittle me because of my sex!

with jade for eyes
spun gold hair

Priceless

You are…
a taste of honey
passionately sweet  
binding two souls
together as one

You are…
a gentle touch 
pristine life-giving
crystal clear water
from up above

You are…
a ray of sunlight
rosy blushing cheeks
radiantly beaming
joyfully all aglow

You are…
a prismatic waterfall
glistening rainbow 
dazzling droplets
lighting up blue skies

You are…
a romantic moonrise
at twilights fall
inspiring lover’s
hearts to swoon

You are…
a wintery snowfall
nature’s stillness
life bringing forth 
new hope reborn

You are…
a priceless treasure
grandeur perfected
royalty’s crown
lovingly adored

Assault and Battery

The abuse in this day 
has gone to far
a war is fought in every other home
from sibling rivalry to spousal abuse
to mend these ties 
it seems there's no use
the only thing left to do
is stand up for ourselves
and stop the battles
for patience is not a virtue
when it leads you to being black and blue
we should take the fight to the streets
and chant a chant to be repeat
we should love ourselves enough
not to be in the rough
we should turn the other cheek
and leave the home far at least a week
for need a new philosophy
when in danger we should flee
love should never be an excuse
to stand for abuse

I Am a Lucky Man

So sweetly, 
as she descended the stairs
I turned at the perfect moment to see her beauty.
Nothing to anyone else’s eyes,
but to mine, she is perfection.
She came down, 
just wearing everyday clothes,
but, it was the way she carried herself
that made me stop,
breathe a heavier breath
and smile.
She does that to me often,
for her heart outshines the sun.
Her glow
outdoes the moon’s.
Her smile,
far out smiles that of the Mona Lisa.
My own personal masterpiece,
only not made of canvas.
She is made of sweet smelling,
soft and desirable
skin,
my everything.

Longing For You





Oh how my eyes, have welled, from weeping,
My heart, it aches, from hurting,
My hands, long for your touch,
My eyes for your Beauty,
And my body, how it pangs, for yours,
In my mind I hold your memory,
And how I cherish it.
A Memory, is all that’s left me know,
Yet long, will it hold.
For now, I know,
I have lost, that, which I will always search for,
Long, for that, which I cannot touch,
Cry for what, I will never see again.

How I miss thee,
What, will become of me.
Life seems so hollow now,
I have lost the path to follow.
This unbearable feeling of loss, has cut deep, in my heart,
For I cannot bear, for us, to be apart,
So on I weep, for long will be thy torment, 
Long, will I grieve the day, you left,
Dear God, please help me, is there nothing I can do,
Forever and always, my Darling, 
 I will miss you.

Betrayed. Again!

i'm writing this to explain to you my feelings
please bear with me, this won't be easy
of course i thought of seeing you first
every hour of everyday that meeting i rehearse
and through clandestine verse
i reveal that which you have mared

our minds with memories that we can not forget
our souls with a curse that will not lift
our Body defiled from evils touch
My devotion destroyed by my willingness to trust
deep inside me a demon lives
a demon who regretfully will not forgive

i find it very hard to find the will to live
so i beg God to let me live
Gods answer is that i learn to forgive
Lord, forgive Them for they know not what they do

We get off the plane, back in LA. We drop our stuff off at home and go out for the day.

 

You wait outside the bathroom door. "Baby," I say. You stop breathing. "What is it?" I slowly open the door. "Yes." I say and smile. "Yes!" you scream and pick me up. You spin me around and kiss me.

9 months later I step out of the car. 3 of us this time. Isavella. Our first daughter. "She looks just likeher mom," you say and smile. "With her daddy's eyes," I say and look at you. "I love you," you say. "I love you too," I say and gently kiss me.

 

We're older now we've made it a long way. We sit on the deck and watch the sun set. "All or nothing," I say and hold your hand. "All or nothing," you say and lead me down to the sand. "30 years is a long time," you say to me and pull me close. " So is forever," I say. You hit play and Amazed comes on. "We'll make it that far, I swer," you say as we start to dance. We look at Isabella playing in the sand. "I know baby," I say and smile.
 

We'll last forever. Nothing will break us. We'll always be together.



Together forever.

Pay Back

I keep your picture
By my Bed.

So when I flip the covers back
I can slap you in the face.

As you have slapped mine
All these years.

Not with your hand
But with your cold indifference.

Boundary

of charmed eloquent refrain
and of delicacy obtain
I am still in awe
at the thought you are mine
at the Equinox of our follies
I am most assured
of your devotion
for you are liken to that of blossoms
for you are sought after with great accord
 your beauty fills my heart
and causes my cup to over run
for you have no boundaries

A Tragedy

The sweat droped from his tatherd shirt
as he realized his fate was near.

He paused between sentences because
he couldn't belive it was finally here.

The day, time, and place was different
but it was all the same.

The feeling, thoughts, and moments
all filled with pain.

As he looked up he saw the light
which brought him feelings of shame.

One last glance to fill him with content
but as he looked it all came.

The visions and remembrance
was brought over him.

He rememberd that car crash
where all that was left was a tire rim.

Then he realized who was on the floor
laying next to him in the pasengers seat.

He fagged eyes opened to see
he was sitting in a hospital seat.

The doctor walked in and 
it filled him with dread.

"Mr. Jones, Im sorry
your wife Lynn is dead."

Lone Apple Tree

Let me be as the lone apple tree
Among the trees of the forest
That you found and sat down under.
With great delight,
You sat in its shadow;
For a taste of comfort,
You ate its sweet fruit
Until you were strengthened
Because you were faint with desire,
But I am faint with love for you.
So, take me now to your lone apple tree,
Peculiar among all other trees,
And with great joy under its shadow,
Let us sit and recline
And there awaken love,
As you raise me up;
Refresh yourself
For when I am roused, 
You will be stayed, strengthened 
With words fitly spoken;
Keep me as the apple of your eye.

A Temperance of Love




Of the voices, I have heard, the sound of Silence,
 Is the loneliest, by far.
It is infinite, unending,
Yet, this gap can be bridged.
Love, Friendship, Happiness,
They each, can be a tether, a line,
Something to grasp.
These insurmountable things, uneventful as the one,
But together, combined, how resilient,
Is their effect.
Heavens and earth, Stars and sky,
Have known, there passion,
The World, has wept, for its pain.
It is such a wonder to know, a joy to behold,
Though simple in its complexity,
Whole in its entity.
In life we love, in life we share,
In life we give, in love we care.
Else, we falter, and we fail,
Loose the grasp and, then we wail.
How lost would I be, without her hand to guide me,
Her touch to show me, her smile to brighten my day.
Many do they number, the things I love of you,
Of which I have mentioned, but a few.
Yet with love in my heart, shall I face all things,
With the courage of Lions,
Tempered with the care of Angels,
This feeling, It is my Salvation,
This State, of Grace and elevation,
  Beholds that, which my love  , and I share.


Clement Hardy.

A rose from Calverille

Take the last roses
From the unborn spring
Warm them between 
Your virginal breasts
Until I will return

Holding them against 
Your heart you should
Remember me as a bastard thief

Like an eagle flies in shame
Above the dried hunting
Ground I go

I will return
For you, sweet Calverille
One day
I promise you
One day
In the dying autumn
I should come for you
Even if I am dead.

Cardona I

Watching the sex in others
Hoping I’ll receive
I deserve, I’ll deceive
Misinterpreting my bother
Is it since I’m nothing like their mothers?
I’m teething, teasing my package
Tight and raucous, no one should be round
Up and out in lunar rhythms
Lights and camera roll action in my glamour fashion

Anxious patterns grace a romp
Stimulated in drugs I’m all kissed better
Will you answer now my letter?
Or it matters not if I strut leather?
Thought I was wealthy, full of stealth
Sometimes platonic bumps make it worth the dump

How he always asks for more
Praying for peace, paying for gore
And yet my desires stay unused
Time comes when all my natures fuse
To make my enchantments stab him!
Psychoanalyzed female savage **** galore
Yes, tonight I want to be a whore

Or really, I’m young like us
With the book stars and honor maps
Erotic sentences take my libido for a walk
The miles per hour run the laps
Streaking tweaked past the fuzz
Watch the dawn spitting puss

Oh the sadness of coming down now
Can’t spark a match
Flick this cigarette off my hard orange fingers
Stay indoors with my future addictions
If it itches, scratch it
Come help my snatch out
Forgive this ring, my silly vows
Get your head in my legs and bow

Tears for fair play
Sweats for foreplay
This love game keeps no score
Am I winning or is this just a bore?
Is it based on skill or luck?
*****hookers, fortune dicks
Chick flicks for gnome sized ravaged losers!
They hate me more and for what?
I’m a selfish kid with my best toys stolen
How I’d forgotten this feeling
Are all cheaters poets or
Does my honor pen a beating?

The possible lying and needing
Which is worse..? No conclusion getting nearer
Kneel off my high horse
Gently make it raw and coarse
Or just attack to kill my feeding

I need the trust to screw
It and you before it starts to rust
For lust just lasts this moment
The date’s been set, I’ll pay the bet
Restrain the debt and gnaw the net

The Snow White Dove

Fourteen years she gave him her love

Little children laughing at the snow white dove

Reflecting an image so soft and sweet

But the mirror lies then it cuts your feet

Closing out reality

The reflection blinded her, then she drowned in the raging sea

Imagining for all love of life

She was just a prisoner titled his wife

Now will she fake her separation from the cobra's beast

Now the wishless heart will feast

Love me not she screamed in vain

Inside there was nothing but a salty grain

Fruitless heart for the dove

He was blind and now he lost her love

Forever his heart will be caste in pain

You should have never began to perceive

Now the snow white dove must leave

Whispering her name out loud

Now the angels stole the shroud

What was the word he meant to say "love"

Oh, love is too late today

For the hour has begun to sleep

Now the angel has begun to weep

Should our souls start to pray

Not anymore, he can not stay

Pulling him down into the lost depths

I heard a voice telling me a year ago

Telling me the dove would intercept the hail of the blinding snow

God please guide her and make her warm

Shelter her from the darkness of the storm

Take our dove and sit her upon a golden lark

Snowy white radiant beauty of a bird

Now imprisoned where her song is never heard

He took her soul, he took her life

He should have loved her, she was his wife

Her heart must not remain unknown

Please dear god don't leave the snow white dove alone

Questions

If I smiled at you
would you smile back
or would you simply turn
your head and pretend not
to notice?

If I cried would you comfort me
or leave me alone to suffer?

If I said 'I love you' would you
respond with a slap or a kiss.

If I died would you grieve or
would you simply start your
life anew?

Forbidden Love

Across the crowded room
she caught him looking at her.
Tears pooled in her deep brown eyes 
as a sad smile filled her face.

Her heart was shattered
as he turned his back to her. 
She stumbled out the door 
running for emotional cover.

Forbidden love is a painful thing 
hidden deep inside, 
never to see the light of day, 
never allowed to fly. 

Abandoned and alone 
just like the house she’s in, 
her heart cries for mercy, 
and then, HE walked in. 

From across a darkened room
they sought each other out. 
You could feel the tension mounting 
as their love drew them along. 

All else was forgotten 
as eyes locked on eyes. 
The surge of desire
lit a fire deep inside.

Their forbidden love,
no longer a painful thing
was free to fly at last
and seek the light of day.

New Life

Six hours past and it still isn't over.
Your palms sweat and your body shaking.
The mind raceing with your thoughts.
All these questions, no answers.
You panic, friten and scared.
The pain and watching is to much.
But your love keeps you in touch.
One last push and a life is born.
The parents hold there new baby boy.

A Learned Lesson

 Beep beep beep
The alarm wakens him
The traditions of the morning take place
He kisses his wife and kids, just like any other day
And off to work he goes
As the morning turns to noon, and the noon into night,
The cycle once again begins.


Beep beep beep
The alarm awakens him 
His eyes open to an empty bed
Walking downstairs he notices the desertion of his house
In panic he runs outside
Turning around in circles, surrounded by nothing and no one
Alone…he surrenders to his knees.

Beep beep beep
The alarm awakens him
His wife in his arms, his kids by his side
“A second chance?” he thought
A second chance to not take for granted his blessed life
To give every part of himself to the ones who need it
To be, never again, alone.

Never Thought

I never thought I’d love this much
And to think you did it with a single touch.
Never thought id feel this way about anyone
But with you its different...I love you Hun.

When I look deep into your eyes
In my stomach I get those little butterflies
I hope you get this feeling from me
When you look deep into mine what do you see?

I’m writing this to show that I care about you
I love all the little things that you do
As soon as you walked into my life
I've wanted you to be my wife....

I never thought I’d love this much
And to think you did it with a single touch.
Never thought if feel this way about anyone
But with you its different...I love you Hun.

Tears

Depression is conquering your mind
Your body has no action or sign
Sadness has engulfed your emotion
Your broken heart turn into dissatisfaction

You waited forever, but no one's there
you wished someone for you would care
only hope you ask is to pray
that love is forever and always stay

Your blue eyes is turning red
and teardrops you say wont be shed
that one day your love will return
You realize that your eyes begun to burn.

You pretend to smile but your still alone
Loneliness in your life is only shown
Your learned forever is not enough
You need a lover that's makes you laugh

Like a river flows from your eyes
A million tears is no surprise
I miss you, you say everyday
But crying is not okay

I need you, you said my love
But only god knows i love you from above
Until the end of time we meet again
So your tears will end

How

How is it that the love of your life, comes only when you least expect it?
To look in their eyes and just know in your heart that they are the one you are 
supposed to be with, for the rest of your life!
What is it about the person right in front of you that captures you?
Is it their love?
Is it their personality?
Is it their way of showing that they care so deeply for you?
Or maybe; just maybe it’s all of that!!!!
All you know is that you are with the one you are supposed to be with!!!

The Spirit And The Mortality

 The Spirit And The Mortality 
The love inside of a finite creation 
such as myself, 
finds expression 
only in disbelief. 
That such a being as GOD 
would love and care for me, 
enough to crucify HIS SON. 
To Then Empower me with time to love. 
To send to me a woman 
called by namme Parme. 
The wind can not be contained 
in such of a small space, 
as on the inside of such a one as eye. 
A purple dragon fly lives now inside of me. 
Fluttering his wings he shudders and he moans 
in silent exstacy as i ponder my Parme 
as I struggle to convey 
the love in me. 
I Came.

Silent Touch

Silent touch awakens the spirit
before the early pre-dawn light
as Eros’ salute alerts the mind,
in rhythmical readiness stands
masculinity’s priapic member,
awaiting coitus’s inner embrace 
love’s symphonic masterpiece, 
as two lovers answer desire’s
eager call teaching the subtle
ever tender art of making love

Silent touch inflames the soul
in sensuous dreams of ecstasy
an eloquent caress touching
the panorama of existence in 
innocent poetic sonnets of 
intimate wordless gestures, 
an opus of blissful thoughts 
igniting two beating hearts 
imagining the silent peaceful
life-giving art of making love

Silent touch is heartfelt words
like the soft embrace of a pure
forever passionate love letter,
a special closeness kindled in 
naïveté’s shared wonderment 
embracing the quiet moments
of special remembrances and
jubilation of two minds joined 
as one in the serenity magical
joy of the act of making love

Silent touch is a soundless echo 
a special harmony giving birth 
devoted intimacy and sentience 
of the mystery of the two spirits,  
dancing in the flickering light 
of natural unconditional love, 
enlivening every tender moment 
living and breathing, a special 
bond formed between two souls 
in the delicate act of making love

Sorry, but You're Late

You say that you're sorry that you're late
   And here I sit waiting on you all day
You say, "Oh baby its nothing sorry that I'm late"
   Now I'm saying that's all you have to say to me
                    that you're late

You made the plans to go out on Friday nights
   Instead you hang out with your friends
That, I didn't understand
   Then, you in your bed and think I'm supposed 
to drop everything for you so that we can make up for the love you lost
              think again

Everytime you say you would call me
    I asked you what had happened
All you could say is "I Forget"
   Yeah that same old excuse
When being with you is no use

Sometimes, hmmmm, I wonder
   Do I mean anything to you?
You act as if I don't
   But you keep coming back thinking I will
             show my love to you
Well, someday I wont be standing here waiting on you

You should know while you're out playing games
   what goes around come around
what seems to hit you long like us
   sooner or later will hit you short
So you say you sorry

But this is what I have to say,
"So I realized since Im a woman
   and were the back bone
I'm sorry, but you're late
  but I found somebody new
     and its definitely not with you
 I finally gave up with you and your games
because I was tired of waiting on you"

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

You are My Everything

The Sun and all its beauty
is just a distant star,
next to you.

The world and all its lands
is just dry dirt
next to you.

The setting sun over the sea
Wanes painfully
In your presence.

The spoken words of love
Fall on deaf ears
If not your voice.

I say, my love,
you are the beacon that guides me.
You are a Louvre exhibit in flesh.
You are an angel as well.
You are my everything.

Love Is Not

                      I don't pretend
      to really understand what love is,
                  but I guess I know 
              a bit about what it's not.

         That cloyingly sweet emotion
           that sours with the ticktock
                       of the clock
                  definitely it's not.

                       Love is not 
   just making love like making coffee
               or making an alibi
             or making one's bed.

              It's living life lovingly
   with the one you love for a lifetime,
       despite stale coffee, poor alibi 
                 and aching head.

Bells from the Cathedral

Bells from the Cathedral

How do you tell
a wife you love
there are Spring days
in raw Chicago
bright with sun 
and the boom 
of bells 
from the Cathedral
how do you tell
a wife like that 
there are Spring days
you wish you had a girl

The Dream Portal

The Dream Portal 
The Dream Portal 
It was a fancy building very large several stories tall an old mansion 
Very similar to something from my past perhaps a large wooden plantation 
house where many slaves were quartered after the rich white folks died. 
It could even have been a ranch house from the days of yesteryear when Long 
John Silverman the Lonesome Stranger lived. The lady whom eye love was in a 
costume dress and ewe found a matching hat like ladies use both purple dyed in 
woolen splendor the facade of the structure of the place was painted puce and 
purple peeling from abuse of years in westward weathered SUN shining from 
the desert EAST. It was she descending spiral staircases 
Admired at by the many puerile longings of the man who loves her still? 
 Resplendent in her glory long legs move slowly incased in purple dress where 
soon she met the GHOST of friendship past a man she knew while he was yet 
living looking for the day of funeral. He was searching for the memorial that most 
men crave they want remembrances. This story is a true version though the 
name of the ewe is kept a heart secret. This was ewe dream a portal if ewe will it 
came to be told by me through longing olde.

Did ewe love mee more

Love grows inside of sorrow 
at the past come back to haunt us. 
But even so 
eye am manly also 
not confused of this my gender 
 ewe aer love fashioned out of time 
  to make me love 
creative people suffer more 
Don't you think? 
they are more sensitive 
sadness and hidden sorrow 
mixes with the love. 
TO make us love the more 
to make us love the love.

From Afar

I spoke - you cried 
And I know you hurt inside 
Knowing it's all not right 
But giving up for peace of mind 

We loved - we love 
Trapped together
The silk now so inanimate
Like strand upon strand of hardened healing 

We pray - we sigh 
And wish time would not hurt us 
Curse our reasons for they are the demons 
All the fake revelations and treasons seemed to change with the seasons 

The heart the moon the soul the scars 
They have all become ours 
As we sit behind bars and gaze at our love 
From afar ... From afar.

Thief

Stolen youth, lost in the past
Hiding my face in my pillow,
Don't want him to hear.
Everything is soaking wet,
Laying very still, 
Careful not to wake him.
My heart is full of sorrow,
Could this be all my life has to offer?
My body trembles and
My soul aches.
What could have been?
All time has withered away,
like a petal from a discarded bouquet.
I'm never alone yet I feel lonely.
Who is there to really care for me?
To hold me when I'm sad,
To tell me everything will be all right.
He isn't the one for me,
The one I married so long ago.
He's not as soft as she,
Nor is he as sweet.
Like a thief in the night,
Robbed of my youth and innocence.

You See

Take a look outside.
What do you see?
I see a land created on pride.
Please by all means tell me what YOU see.

Take a closer look, look into the hearts of man.
What do you see?
Do you see the will to live the best he can?
Please tell me what you see.

Now look into the eyes of your lover.
What do you see?
Do her eyes remind you of your mothers?
Please tell me what do you see?

Eye Put My Finger On IT

Eye  Put  My  FInger  On  IT 
EYE put My finger on it,eye figured it out,eye discovered it. 
But now eye am perplexed again at what eye have figured out. 
Eye thought it was the way ewe eyes light up 
write when ewe here my namme. 
Eye thought it was the way ewe sing and sway 
when ewe are all alone with me (spritually). 
Eye thought it was the way eye feel inside 
when eye here ewe say that ewe still love me. 
And eye would never own a slave but eye am slave to ewe. 
A giant question mark is sometimes deep inside of me. 
Eye put my finger on it,but just what have eye got? 
A lot of love a lot of want. 
The Future? 
L()()king forward to ewe kiss. 
While eye am righting this.

Nostalgia Of A Blind Man

people sound more in a hurry
and the way home seems longer today.
his late wife would have called this
a clip between time and reality.

shifting his cane, he reaches
to gingerly touch the cuff links
his wife had left him
from her grandfather.

he smells her  --
Cathryn who sells roses
on the town's square
where he would often sit feeding pigeons.

lavender is her scent --
the same as his wife's.
Cathryn says, "hello."
they stop for small talk.

they go on for a spell,
until things get awkward for him.
he starts to wring his hands.
a cuff link drops to the ground.

she says, "goodbye."
he says  he will stop by
for roses sometime.
she seems to vanish with the passers-by.

he takes the path of slippery stones
along the circle's round.
there, the path will become sturdy
and his tie will be the same.

STRANGERS AS LOVERS

STRANGERS AS LOVERS


She became strange as a stranger in a lovers boat
As the wind puffs power and gets stronger
Their relationship gets weaker
She finds fault in everything he does
She picks quarrel at every slightest opening
Yet the wind marches on with a vigor
That mirrors the minds of the disturbed

They hardly speak to each other again 
They now opt for strange smiles 
Over mind-bugging issues 
He saw it coming from above 
He questioned and queried the strangeness
Still lost, wandering and pondering in his thoughts

It all ran fast like a hare
Faster then they could ever dream of
Alter solemnization promise this varnishes 
Prophecies of unparallel compatibility
And perfect matching wanes.

Why will he wait for seven years before she let go?
Why now, two months to end her tutelage
Why did she throw her rectitude of years in murky water? 
Why did she stab with impunity all they’ve lived for?

you

With just a look you had me
With just one touch I was yours
With just one kiss I was committed forever
To feel you in my arms is the best thing i have ever felt
Your warmth your smell the contours of your body
The sounds you make ever so seductively
I am hypnotized by your smile
I am lost in your eyes
Your voice whispering in my ear sets my sole on fire
I can hardly control my excitement when i know i will see you
The more I am with you the more that i want you
You are like an addiction that i don't want to break
You are the shinning star on my darkest hour
You are the glass of water to my life long drout
I want you 
I need you 
I love you

What Hasnt Been Named

The blood was so red,
Mixed within the water,
I tried not to look,
At what my eyes where ashamed of.
Yet it held my gaze,
Like a lover lost,
In his angels soul.

I held you tightly,
Embracing our pain,
I could feel you shake,
The fear in your tears,
Overpowering what was suppose to be,
As you called out my name,
I pulled the plug,
Wishing for forgiveness.

The tornado came,
As I watched what was once my dream,
Spiral and spin,
Its sound of thunder,
How can this be such a perfect storm,
That has yet to be named.

I ran more water,
Hot became cold,
In library time,
I recalled what was told,
Just hours before I had accepted,
Everything was suppose to be ok,
It wasn’t going to rain,
Not today not ever,
I can still see the stain.

I silently asked why,
You so loudly called out my name,
Over and over again and again,
Both asking questions,
How can we fix this pain,
Of flooding confusion…
The answers never came.

I tried not to get sick,
I tried to be strong,
As I hid your eyes,
My chest wet with your dreams,
Things started to spin,
All I could do was pray,
Please give me back,
What hasn’t been named.

Dying love

Half empty, unable to be complete, accompanied
by ghostly faces of life with out my heart.

My queen away from me lost in this unforgiving world ,
sucked into a black hole of my mental universe 
not to be seen but missed.

Love is lost but forever entombed into my heart protected by traps for the most 
cunning thieve can not 
steal this love.

Hurts so bad it renders me sick stricken with the will to live
weak as is my pulse for my heart begins to
stop.

The tears flow freely doing the talking for my 
motionless lips, limbs that are
so numb dying slowly for the survival
of my being is depleted with the love
of my life gone for my 
embracing.

To Have and to Hold

You have some things
That I do not possess
That I need from you;
But will I be abased
And look to you to receive it
The way you will give it.

The Hardest Question

Why?

Thats the hardest question.

When is easier. It was after.

After the baby, cacooned safely

inside of me. After she died. 

 

Why?

Again its too hard.

Who is easier. It was him.

He who promised to love me,

for better and for worse.

 

Why? 

That question's too difficult

Where is easier. In our room.

Our room with the cot in the 

corner. It was for her.

 

Why? 

Is still don't know.

What is easier. It was a knife.

A knife which slit, cut and stabbed

at my throat and stomach.


Why?

I can't remember! 

How is easier. With a casual

indifference. The anger had 

dissapeared.

 

Why?

Because of me. Because I killed

our baby girl. Not born, never born.

The pills had taken her. 

Like he took me.

Priceless

A beautiful entity bestowed upon me
with gentle touches of a silky rose petal

Warming eyes with love so deep and profound,
tapping into the depths of my soul, allowing me
to surrender to life and the world around me

The voice of a gentle breeze in a mid summer night,
caressing the body, answering the insecurities of 
a little boy

skin with a milky softness so smooth, the warming
touch of a hand upon my face, blanketing me from
the evils of this world

Power to rejuvenate life so precious, a spawn of my
blood into this world is born

With natural grace and compassion to nurture the
children of gods creations, mothers, sisters,
daughters, wives are thee creators, trophies
of life

Hmm! I Know That Smell

A scent, so rare 
Of purity, fills the air passing
Through the slightly opened-window
Of my upper room 
Hmm! I know that smell, it’s not from 
The lone noble fir, outside, standing
Proud, with its fine fragrant foliage
Nor, from the sweet-scented creamy 
Fruits, of grandpa’s strawberry trees
I went near the window
And, I peeked childishly
Lo! I saw a fiery
Lips as red as the roses
Flutter, like a majestic butterfly
In a morning breeze 
There, in the garden, a woman 
So lovely, with a brown smooth skin
And long black hair, listens 
To the silent hymns, of Angels’ trumpet 
As, the bluish sky, in sight, watching 
The fairest of all creatures
While, the warbling birds nestling
On an oak tree, where once I tattooed
The symbol, of great love
Whispered to her, of my sudden peeking
She looked up, at me
Sheepishly, I waved my hand….
But, she threw me 
Her sweet morning grin
Now, I know why 
Envy lingers around the town 
It’s ‘cos of my priceless treasure
From among the many, she chose 
Me, to be the rightful owner, of her smile

A Certain Uncertainty

he grins wryly at the familiar thought

     that he's once again eating late breakfast

        over early lunch, or maybe doing it just

           the other way around;


it amuses him that he' s still this unsure,

     pretty much like being still unable to tell

        if the red sun in a silver sky in a painting

           is rising or setting;


affectionately, he brushes a strand of hair

     from her cheek, softly tucking it around

        her nape, a vague smile of faint

           uncertainty in her sleep.

One Dimensional

We must be careful that we don’t become
As one dimensional as our shadow 
Life is an ever-changing thing
What we are today 
May not be what we are tomorrow
We must learn how to adapt
To the ever changing tides of life
I have been questioning who I am
Because in the last five years
My life and who I am has changed many times
The devil attacks me on many levels
For he knows how to distort the truth
And turn my mind against myself
Thankfully my wife knows how to help me see
That even though my disabilities keep me from work
My own desire to help others
Keeps me busy throughout each and everyday
Many elderly people in my community
Have come to depend on me in many ways
I found out that I won’t be released to work till 09
If even then
For almost two years I have been a housewife
Battling diseases and injuries
Waiting and hoping to get back to work
Now I learn that may not happen without retraining
I don’t really even know what this poem is about
All I know is that the Lord is leading me to something
And the devil is trying to get me to throw it all away
I feel like a ping-pong ball
Getting slapped back and forth between the two
I know that I’ve became a good housewife
And never does anyone ask me for help
That I don’t do all I can to help them
The Lord blesses me for my efforts
As my wife comforts me
Whatever the Lord leads me to be
I will become
Because my wife has ask me to not be
As one dimensional as my shadow


You know I posted this poem (if you could 
even call it that) and deleted it three times
in a row. I think I'm asking for prayer for
guidance. My wife thinks I'm right where I
need to be and I should just accept it and
keep doing what I'm doing and go back to
Collage full time. This sure isn't what I thought
recovery would be. God Bless you all.

The Middle Ground

L()()king for the middle ground.

Searching for a place to stand.

Wishing for the wind to howl at me to blow sweet love to me.

Seeds aer given to be spent in hopes of future generation.

But then Spirit came to me and told me of my seperation.

Flesh is not the way of life but spirit deep inside.

We aer borne in space and time: a love.

When eye sleep above the tree line eye get snow.

The ditch however is a place eye never go.

Somewhere in between the Heaven and the Sun.

My ^V^iolet FLower dwells in some colors from above.

But eye am earth bound in my footsteps.

Footprints sounding when eye walk between the raindrops.

L()()King for that middle ground.

Yes eye carry love.

Centered in the recess of my chest.

The thing is called a heart.

Changing colors as eye walk to middle ground.

Changing back from black to ^V^iolet blue.

Searching all my thoughts of ewe.

Finding only LOVE in the place of solitude.

Shining in my armour.

Eye love ewe.

The Garden Ceremony

Early evening, 
the sun descended slowly 
capturing the beauty of the surroundings.
Walking on,
the crowd gathered further down
for celebration of the love, the ceremony.
She was radiant,
compared to the flowers about,
she was a rose in a field of lilies and daphodils.
She smiled,
generating her own sunlight,
casting her beauty for the crowd to witness.
He waited.
With a joyful anticipation
He welcomed this beauty with a smile.

They turned,
together, facing each other
and facing the love of new tomorrows.
The sun descended,
but remained in the sky for them
casting new shadows of love on every tomorrow.

Nervous Lyre

with her eyes smiling back
   at his furtive glances,
      she swishes and flings
         ebony hair forward over
            her left shoulder, revealing
               such lovely neck and nape,

               and, with a towel, she lazily
                  caresses her wet tresses;
                     turning her head, she twists
                        the carefree sliver of hair,
                           and, hurriedly, wrung water
                              meanders down her neckline;


her throat, casts a crystalline
   silhouette against a red sky;
      freed from her grip, her locks
         fall and sway to the rhythmic
            rolling of waves in a black sea,
               windswept, driven so far away;

               mustering again the courage
                  to gaze at her, he is stunned
                     by her downcast eyes that only
                        sharpen her bewitching profile,
                           turning his guts into delicate
                              strings of a very nervous lyre !

Where I want to dwell

But Inside where the grass

Where the mirror of mye soul

When her final battle with despair is ended. 
She will have a place with me.

Symbols of Love

I watched the clouds in the sky move and dance above me as if they were alive, 
watching me. To me there was identity there. Not that numbers are alive or can 
move, but I believe there is more there than numerical quantity. Here they remind 
me of love. Love . . . 

0.  Circle of trust. Would you walk with me if I were blind – 
Would you hold my hand if I had only one –

1.  Fence post. If I built more, would you still visit me for an afternoon biscuit?
If I promise to not criticize or question you, might you look into my eyes and dare 
to love me as I do you?

2.  Swans, kissing. And if they don’t kiss, might we be as majestic and 
affectionate.

3.  Smooth, flexuous bottom that I surely like to rub and caress…

4.  A drifting sailboat. Come sail with me my sweet. We’ll voyage thru life on the 
gales of trust and anchor near the port of easy solace where we may share quiet 
moments together.

5.  Glass of wine. Slanta! I raise my glass to the future and family and friends 
who left us.

6.  A tremulous and at times adrift wave. Ride it with me.

7.  Tilt the rudder on this passive Hinckley. Let’s go together … naked. I’ll steer.

8.  It’s not the lines a skater forms on a frozen New Hampshire pond, but the 
skates she tossed into the garbage. My friend, take my hand. I’m here with you. 
I’ll not let you stay alone. 

9.  Sangria – kiss me again and again. After Zocalo and Sangria, my lips and 
mouth are fervent and tingle with sweet-tasting exhaustion.
     
10.  Not the ending but the start; I want to be with you every day of this life and 
then afterwards, forever and ever. I love you.  


the end

The Flower is violet.

 The Flower was violet. 
There was once a violet flower. 
She grew along a high placed ledge of rock faced stone. 
All the other flowers disappeared in the snow. 
She alone survived and thrived among the rocky thorns. 
A man fell all alone he died in battle. 
Wounded for his men, crying out the namme of his flower. 
He lays beneathe the snow under unmowed grass. 
An ^A^ngel of mye GOD came bye , 
HE sighed a pretty song, as he placed the violet there. 
In Life is so in Death may be an indian belief. 
All I can rally knoe is that I love her so. 
And when the end of time has come, 
and GOD gives out rewards, 
the two of them will come alive,to never ever sleep. 
She will wash his hands and kiss them then. 
And tell him she loves him so. 
INside the INN of Heaven,they have a place to dwell. 
Where ^A^ngels tell of flowers 
growing roots on old gravestones.

Innocence lost in dare

Innocence lost in dare 
Eye still believe that somewhere in America
a little girl can play in her own backward backyard
She can ride a bicycle and a mirage to the sky 
she can dance without getting shot
She can read a comic book without a look 
at a porno magazine
Eye have seen the children play in America
Sometimes the world gets too close to us
Sometimes the physical people around us
Play way too rough for people to go on living nice
Sometimes the beast within the lust comes out
And destroys a dream an innocence lost in dare

The Test Of Love

the twisting vulgarites of daily living

mostly bread and wine and dainty meat

no man alive is worth that unto me they say 
they smile and walk away dont touch me 
they say dont touch me 
they are somewhere in the forgotton life 
the life eye left behind 
the sandwhiches of the dollar kind 
are not afforded to the men 
they eat no fish eggs but fish heads 
and drink no fancy wine

Worthlesslessness

Worthlesslessness
Depression and worthlessness of life has come to me 
She seldom arranges the bouquets in the guest room
She makes the smile appear less often
She seems to be resigned to lose at love
She understands the need of love she understands me
She turns it on and off 
Eye no longer have a worth in me to live for
A reason to exist in song is gone
It no longer has to work at all
Eye am ruined and undone
Eye gave it to her all

Playmate

Looking out 
Of our upper room window
Over looking the garage
Where my old court stand still, with
Its ring attached to the cemented wall 
I see my dearest son, five years old
Playing basket by himself
Dribbling the ball
Zigzagging, against the unseen opponent 
Then he jumped, releasing 
A long range shot
And the ball landed into the net. Shoot, three points
So happy to see him, playing
Thou, as he walks to recover the ball, to do it again
I can feel his breath
Heavy and discontented, touching my heart
That made me whisper to the wind
Don’t worry, son
Dad’s rushing enough to give you happiness
I promise you
You’ll have your own playmate
Your beautiful mom is now one month late

One Another For Each Other

There is a beautiful woman who enchants me so
how did we find each other?
how could two souls so far apart be brought together?
please accept me for who I am
I already accept you for who you are
woman, please come with me
into the garden that is love
all I want to do is make love to you
kiss you, hold you
let's slowdance the midnight away
let's give each other all of us
woman, I know i'll give you all of me
i'll give you a big slice of humble pie
give me all of you
let's be true to one another
let our love never die
long summer nights, short winter days
I want to spend them with you
all we need is each other
I just want to romance you
feel passion and togetherness
forever and ever, my darling 
say it'll last forever
let's share each other with each other
make our bed and lay in it
we are dreams inside one another's head
when our eyes meet
let us dream no more
for when the day the dream comes true draws near
our undying love will bring us together

Menu of the Day


This is where I start, the beginning of a 
poem. Gee, the faceless memories are
blanketing the beach! The sweet sweat 
of anise seeds wets dried olden throats

matching with precious emerald stones 
and feta of the gods, dressed in earth’s  
natural, colorful skin to satisfy a hunger

where I watched this fairest of them all 
trudging through the sand dunes. O, her 
foot-prints, left un-touched! I wanted to
 
measure her smile, but my commander 
has taken the order of my day to other 
station. There, I imitated Steven Segal’s 
expertise chopping veggies, for a soup.

The circus

The circus
The circus came to town and a man was at his window he began to frown not 
wanting to turn now from  his window not wanting wife to be a widow WHAT 
WHAT WHAT extraordinary animals he began to form his plan to make the wife 
and his best man departed from their company
THE ZOO THE ZOO THE ZOO he cried AHA AHA AHA he sighed
He phoned in haste his phone in hand he ran he ran he ran to town to find his 
man and widow there
The tommy gun is in the trunk of the elephant he gleefully erected his own stuff 
and once his plan came fruiting forth he planned his own demise of course
His worthwhile pride begin the speech to screech to screech to screech
Impediments of leaking gas of argon gone from holders hand
My woman and my best man turn on hours of my loneliness
Phone call one is to my ex she never guesses just who this is
She has so many bows and suits she has splendid shoes
Phone call two is tommy boy my best friend lies
He lays in justice on my life he lays in naked tresses near my wife
OH trounce the elephant with glee
Oh shoot the tommy snout at thee
My tommy boy is dead from lead coming from my shooting gun
My lady wife is fresher than the tommy gun leaded breaded death
Eye missed her.

Color Of My Shadow

Color of my Shadow
Once again the answer to my prayer was me
The thing most taken just for granted
Life itself in the physical was given
The flowers were chasing colors as eye walked
Changing from dark purple back to dull blue
Its when eye turned and thought of ewe
The love GOD gives to us is hidden in our Hearts and my love for ewe is in there 
tewe
Never ever to depart though they slay me on a thousand hills of skull on a 
thousand different planets made of GOLD eye will always have my LOVE she 
loves me so she is mye silver and mye GOLD and my GOD above HE still loves  
me and makes me understand in shadows given.
The Colors of mye LOVE are different shaded hues of light beams from the sun 
catching and reflecting and refracting all to be so bold to be so in the corner of 
mye eye to give me LOVE. In the shadow passing bye.
Once again eye found mye GOD and saw mye LOVE. In the shadow passing bye.
She is with me now for ever and a day.
In the shadow passing bye.

WHITE FLYING LIES

She speaks with her nose opened wide
Like that of  Queen  Elizabeth the none
From the fringe of the nose
She speaks very fluently 
Chewing Queen’s language
With her head high up	
She must have been an “Americana”
No! Briton, I mean
Chorused the mouth of many.
	
Yet she was not only born of here
She leaves all her life within
In the dusks  . . . thick 
Of a town called “Ibara”.
Indeed the other face of “Ibara”

We thought she was of the 
Known family in “Ibara”
“Ibara” of the biggest shots 
We were hoodwinked again
Its “Ibara” other side
With people of no side or size.

I became  popeyed of it the news
That her Father a local referee
I wore it a gown of surprise
Of her fluency even in 
Pidgin and Yoruba dictions.
Needing twenty two lies 
To support one big heady fabrication.

Does she defeacate or fart ?
Too clean of a skin and look 
Selling dubiously nothing but her casing
As many Adams pay for her pretence
Others swayed by her glibness
Skinned naked by her smile . . . comportment
Donate generously to her carcass
Of an empty moving coffin.
Too hollow to be real.
 
She can’t sleep in darkness
She can’t wash her clothes
Yet she is full of pretence
Too pompous to be genuine.

Enter the knockings of that day
That she will be strip naked 
Of her white flying lies
All at the open market square.

On Birds

On Birds 
A New Poem 
Bye Charles(the charlax) Hice 
  
Title:   On Birds 
  
How many species.       How many genus. 
How many categories.   How many bird stories. 
My poetry is simple. 
And eye am Godly. 
A Sparrow came to me. 
Did God make them ugly. 
Without a doubt they have no hands, to grasp with. 
A Sparrow is NOT a lizzard. 
They do NOT slither. 
They Fly.A Lizzard has no wings they slither. 
A Sparrow has wings and he can fly, no hands, 
a beak with which to speak and eat. 
They eat enough. 
Eye have seen a bird who eats too many seeds. 
It was not eye. 
Eye am a Sparrow,see me fall, 
but not all of me. 
Eye can complete my destiny. 
Mye Love will rest me. 
She is sweet. 
A Violet One.

Slipstream Flight.

Inhaling of you
A flight into the slipstream
Impending hazardous ascension
Defenseless to her will
I ensue my spirits decree

Once unwaveringly level
Constant and serene arrow
Perpetual steady evolution
Petrified of my altitude
Until you sang to me

No rationale guiding untamed
A pungent hurricane forming
With an effortless zeal
Subduing my heavenly refuge 
In precarious currents

Holding my eyes you control
My capricious whims
Of illogical passions
Sending me to freefall
From dizzying heights

When procuring skyward passage
Forlorn flight my strategy
Our spark a troubled consequence
An opportune panorama heated
We are spirit becoming one

Uninhibited hearts respite
Glassed horizons shatter away
Ascending to heights unexplored
I shall pursue eternally
To a rapture created by us

My Love In the Sun

In chestnut waves
Laced with flecks of shining red
My love's hair tumbles down her back.

Standing like some silent angel
Sun a nimbus all around her
She holds me wrapt in admiration
This fair one who rules my heart.

An easy thing it is to love
When what you see you find reflected back
And magnified in a pair of shining eyes
Drinking deeply of the foreverfire
That makes one of two together.

Truth In Eternity.

We have been one through our entire lives
		I felt you from the beginning
		Simply because…
Long before I laid eyes upon your beauty
		I was enraptured of you
I have breathed of you in this long perpetuity 
		Filling the depths of myself
I’ve witnessed the purity seen from your eyes
Sharing of your bright splendor cast upon mine
Ever enthralled of your unheard voice
		I knew your words before you spoke 
I’ve been swathed by the embrace of your ardor
		I have felt the coolness of your touch
		And that fiery passion deep within your eyes
So many countless moments to you I have given
		Wholly of myself into your hands
Throughout my days I have always known
		That one day you would finally appear
Changing the reality of you I have always carried 
		Into the dream I’ve wished for.

A Haunting LOVE

      My biggest fear; is to have my LOVE known as a Haunting LOVE
                  An ambiguous, fearful, unfaithful, ominous LOVE
      Shadows, Silhouettes of the past; screaming  for TRUE LOVE
      Searching the darkness, the emptiness a giant void of despair
      My BELOVED GOD My BELOVED SAVIOR blind LENORE’S
      Eyes with YOUR Universal Light the Brilliance of YOUR GLORY
      Silence HER Ears with the Muic of YOUR VOICE : Prayer and Psalms
      Envelope LENORE’S HEART WITH YOUR AGAPE LOVE
                MY DEAREST and Most  Only BELOVED : LENORE
      May Y O U  NEVER, EVER Know A HAUNTING LOVE

Sweet Dreams


I slip into 
my cloud 
and let it

take my mind 
to count how much left 
of my imagination.

“Ah, I see 
no stars in 
weightless night!” I said.

So she folds 
me, with her honeyed 
palms 

and keeps me 
warm 
in her pot of dreams—

recollecting
my memories to face 
another morrow.

Honey, let’s take a trip
….to the bed, away 
From the lights and sound of home cinema;
And there, I’ll read you, with passion
This rare book I chanced upon
at a local bookstore, when I was 
Looking for Apollinaire.

This book is about Kama Sutra
And it speaks about love,
With vivid illustrations of each techniques; 
It says, it’ll teach us how to be patient… 
On exploring ourselves;
And interestingly, without the dire need 
Of taking…you know…the viagra.

This book will consume us,
Approximately, forty five minutes or less;
It has 70 pages that will, surely, soak 
The dryness of our life.

Ok my dear, just don’t start on page 69!

A Young Negro Testifies

To-day we have naming of parts. Yesterday,
when I heard
you was gonna
represent Tom
at the trial
and share the widow’s homelier pottage
bowed ‘til your bonnet brushed the floor
far below you saw the bricks on the floor
mostly these are seen as food labels
stooped and raised your knees,
because of laziness
the dust of the city
backward down your back so thin
like ducks.
And softly said, “Dear heart, how like you this?”

my life...I was at the top.

Floating in the air I fill nothing nor am I scared,
 the thoughts that run across my mind,did I see or was I blind,
  from childhood to yesterday, I did it with dignity I did it my way,
    I was true to myself,I lived loved and never turned away to help,
        I loved to watch my kids smile,loved when I held my wife a while,
          as a smile crosses my face,...that was life that I embraced,
            now as I paved my road and fixed my heart, will it be easy now you know this part?

I never seen it coming I was struck from behind,around 3:36 am are so was the time,
 a peaceful day are that is what I thought, I just heard a loud noise then it stopped,
   dose my wife know she was my one and only,that my love for her wasn't phony,
     did I teach my kids to know, life was their's and that this is now their show,
       will they be all right with out me here, do they all know did I make it clear,
          not the fear change take a chance, live love hold your head high and dance,
            we are who we want to be, and all the time we shared passes through me,

THUD! I've fallen hitting the ground, I can not here not one sound,
 my eyes stay open as it's the street I see, warm blood pours and surrounds me,
   I never seen this coming, my life would end on this early morning,
     as the dust settled and lights appear, they try to talk to me asking "can you hear,"
        I tried to speak but it was as if I couldn't, I tried to move but my body wouldn't,
          as I felt nothing and a chill filled the air, to leave now, my kids my wife it's
not fair,
             then with out warning it all stopped.....,

Imagenation

eye walked into a cloud

eye kissed ewe in mye mind

eye found a place inside of me to sweet

eye played with self indulgence in my flesh

eye cryed alone but ewe were there

eye walked into a meadow of never ending bliss

the place eye was was in the place we kiss

mye love can never grow because

the world cannot contain it

eye have to leave this world behind 

and fly to nether world of imagenation

where we kiss

 is where we dwell 

in Heaven Jesus open door

Please enter with me

Purple flower mye :pARME will grow there with me

Children of GOD are just

children of imagenation.

Mary is also there somewhere.

In Your Absence

                   The core of me intently listens
          to that which, in your absence, I merely
                        imagined having heard;

                  Once again, I speak eloquently
        of that which, when you were away, I only
                           mumbled to myself;

        And, surefooted, I pick my way in the dark
           where, without you, I tumbled and fell.
                                  Thank you.

Eye Have Seen 

Eye have seen a woman showing paint upon a stick to a painter blending color 
after color in effort to get house the color that she picks. Eye have seen the color 
indicator and the painter almost faint as she tells him it must be this shade of 
pink. Eye have seen the painter tell her oh my lady they do not mix the paint in 
colors made this way. Eye have seen a woman fainting when the house was 
painted white no color added to the mixt. Eye have seen the painter leaving then 
in the direction of the paint store with the multicolored paint stick well in hand to 
get the closest he can get to the color of the picked pink shade of paint. Eye have 
seen a lavender porch. Eye have seen a purple overhanging couch. Eye have 
seen a whole pink house. Ladies get what ladies pick.

My Christmas Tree Is Ewe

Monkey flies and lies disgrace the human race and television has infected all the 
children and the places that they go. What  I   want   for   Christmas   fare   is just 
ewe and a place underneath the mistletoe.  My Christmas tree is thee.  Humble 
and retained in innocence and restfulness.
   Wrapping   all   the   gifts   in   love   and   kisses  please.
The kiss is gift enough for me please send me three of them all sweet and 
tender and tasting just like CHRISTMAS wine.
Love has come back to me for Christmas time.
But not of gold and silver dew eye speak of.
The very Heart of ewe is parme purple violet hued.
What have eye deserved to ascertain the fragrances of a lemon flavored ewe?
Kiss me three times dew.

Defenestrated

That is how a love story goes,
people professing eternal fealty,
invoking the Almighty's guidance,
just cannot live without the other one.

But when

     bills start to pile up,
     mortgage is a baggage,
     his head begins to shine,
     she smiles like a little baby,
     he cannot get it up anymore,
     she is often not in the mood,
     he snores every night like thunder,
     her feet's scent is like gunpowder,
     his breath smells just like a sewer,
     her underarms stink like a skunk's,
     he demands coffee and she prefers tea,
     he collects Dvorak and she digs Bacharach,
     he squeezes the toothpaste in the middle instead of bottom,
     she scatters her dirty underwear all over the bathroom floor…
  
ah, that is when love or what remains of it
becomes so wonderful that it is cast aside
and it is time to call the firemen and police,
maybe the bishop or the local parish priest
or better still, run to the nearest county judge.

Love...defenestrated !!!

Some people are just different some people are just blessed

Some people make a stab at things unseen 
A simpleton a farmer a soldier and the rest a laborer a warrior a vest 
A statesman and a teacher a lion of a man and a little baby lamb 
These poets These poets These poets of the land. 

A Doctor and a Lawyer and the Indian. 
A surveyor when he can find the time makes rhyme. 
A carpet layer and a concrete maker the least of these and them. 
A forgotten homeless in the corridor of time. 
Endless women blessed woman making rhyme.

Some people have so many problems stemming from the lust. 
Some people have so many journeys starting on the dust. 
Every march of a thousand miles begins with just one step. 
Every poem written began with just one word.

Call me Old Fashion

Slept in late so we could get breakfast at brunches to go 
walked about a mile sippin’ mochas to the park to dine under mistletoe 
laid sunbathed with no panty lines
took our time getting back with romance butterflies on high in my abdomen
but that’s not where the day ends
spent and hour in the shower  (trying to get each other bone dry)
(spent and hour after that licking each other bone dry)
simply kissed the day away on cruise control getting’ high
Didn’t know what time it was when you asked what my lips taste like
Don’t know which part of the day it was while you made everything alright
You walked away from me and in a little while I heard the phone ring 
it was you In the kitchen asking if I wanted anything

Freddy the Fly, As The Time Goes By

Poooor Freddy....deserted
by his bride,
Felt so damn hopeless,
All you'd ever see,
Was just how much he cried

So Freddy went,
to a fly psychologist,
Hoping that it meant,
He wouldn't cut his fly-wrist,

But Dr. Sigmund Fly,
Heard his tale, as he did cry,
He asked Poooor Freddy why,
He wanted so to die...

Freddy spoke his truth,
An ache in his fly-tooth
Made him cry so bad,
Not the fly-bride he'd had,

Dr. Sigmund Fly,
Looked Freddy
in his thousand part fly-eye,
Said he couldn't lie,
There was a chance he'd die.....

Now this news stunned Freddy,
His world so surely shook,
He bade the Dr. Fly,
Goodbye,
and his leave he took....

He went to the Roach Motel,
Thinking to die is just as well,
But for Poooor Freddy Fly did there find,
He was not the right insect kind.....

Last anyone saw of Freddy,
He was getting himself ready,
To fly to Mexico,
To some Mexican Fly that he did know....

So, when you swat a fly,
I beg you please try,
to identify the fly
And if a sombrero he wears,
Let pooooor Freddy go!

Awaiting In the Dark

Years I have known, lean and long
Hard going like a winter's night
Teeth and yellow eyes
Awaiting in the dark.

Yet never was there reason not to travel on,
For at every journey's end, there waited you.

These eyes know of no grander sight
Beneath wild seas or burning skies
Than those soft green within your sweet face,
Awaiting in the dark.

Though cold without the world may seem,
In the evening as the embers die
There is yet the comfort of our bed
Awaiting in the dark.

And ever is there reason yet to travel on,
Since at every journey's end, there yet you wait.

New dreams are born from our sleeping sighs
Love transcending the quiet of the dead.
We rest assured of finding one another in the night,
Awaiting in the dark.

Origin of the Kiss

Weaned from milk of mother's breast
The natural instinct follows through
To take hold and touch
To caress and suck
The lips and tongue, two mouths
Exchanging and conferring breath
Which holds the soul and self-will
Uniting the bride and groom
Married and now in the room
Addicted to each other's sebum
Rubbing noses like Eskimos
Inhaling each other's fragrance
Tactile foreplay invites
Licks and lovebites
To copulation, consummation
Yearning for the other's sustenance
The natural instinct follows through
To take hold and touch
To caress and suck
Breath of life for breath of life

The password was grapeseed she wanted to add a number but she was too 
careful not wanting then to forget it no she was not thinking rational she was 
trying to keep her secret. She filed it somewhere wherever it is that she keeps 
her treasures of her heart and never would reveal it not even if she were tortured 
she loves her love she has him kept in a heart of love turned from stone to pure 
sentiment and astonishment she has a full supply she never will run dry he 
needs it all a shallow bowl holding rain takes the edge off parch. A folding of my 
wings brought me gently back to earth to search again for love to stumble not to 
fall to lurch but not to crawl no longer worm in fear but man in love. The password 
that her lover used was seededgrape to echo hers. Just two lovers still in love.

Contradiction And Reflection

Contradition And Reflection 
Contradiction and Reflection 
Nothing can compare to love there is no way to word the thing the love although 
poetry comes close. A rose has thorns and colors and smells while a violet has 
odors' and eye sniff a perfume a smell not unkind but hard to describe like unto a 
mothers love like unto a poets pencil working to make the message seem like 
love to seem like the only thing the most obvious thing without false hope. Every 
song that calls itself a love song sings of some strange sickness some sort of 
illness as the words make a melody and everybody listens as the crooner sings 
this a bit off key ___---“eye could not get to sleep at all last night”---___ and the 
electric organ and the guitar man make everything sound all right again. Love 
can make me sick can make me hurt can make me yearn but that's okay that is 
the way of love. When she says yes is when it makes me strong and the 
sickness is at rest and the love has won. Ewe aer a violet rose no thorn in me.

Worry and fear rule most everyone's day 
how could it not come to me 
Eye was just worried that ideas would dry up 
and the poetry. 
Fishing is always impossible in a monsoon 
and drunkards sometimes miss a drink due to rain 
in the impossible day when it floods. 
Leaning on people and giving is tough 
leaning on money to have everyday 
to make purchases of wine and more beer 
can be hard in the rain. 
Yearning for someone feeling no pain 
yearning for love in the rain 
dying but living inside where she dwells 
the love is so real eye can feel her so well 
she is love deep inside me where no pain can reach 
the insulation of ewe the insurance of she. 
Turning away from the world in my sleep 
reaching for her she is love she is me.

Her Sweat


The morning is so bright, 
the kitty cat sits again 
before the tv set,
through the window I see 
the garden is blooming,
purple-violet and scented honey cream.

Fortuitously, there’s no bee 
to harass the garden, only the eager 
orb is here 
to sip the lady’s sweat,
her sweat run down the earth, whence 
the morning is risen, so bright.

Laundromat Blues

I'm here do'in the wash,
I wonder where are you,
Been hearin' whispered tales,
Of how you've been untrue

Sure don't want to believe that,
Would ruin my life for sure,
If I should be so unlucky,
To find you're but a whore,

I have to wonder how
and why lately,
I get these kind of chores
Especially when I came upon
that hidden book in one of your drawers,
All about the current matrimonial laws,

If I could only launder,    
Away the fear deep in my heart,
And rinse away the aching throb
Tearing me apart,

I guess I'd feel much better,
For then I wouldn't care,
And you would write me a letter,
About how you wouldn't dare,
To break my heart, split up this, our home,
For a life in turmoil, love a'searching,
Forever on the roam.

to give me love

Jesus made green onions and dragon flies.
Roses are violet parme and purple and white. 
Love is a creature living for life.
Eye do not send her flowers made of thistles;
but ewe eye send to ewe mye love. 
Eye search for colored roses 
and eye look for flowers made of shaded hues;
because eye love ewe more than my own life; 
more than simple poem words can tell. 
Antidisestablishmentarianism and other knoeing words 
aer hard for me to spell. 
Eye speel ewe and love parme and Violette and Mary. 
My flowers made of white and purple stones. 
To give me love.

Angel

Angel of mercy
you came in the daytime
burst on the scene like a beauty queen
and knocked the sox off me
sunlight and smiles will be your legacy
sure you cried when the clouds rolled in
sure you cried when the screen went dark 
but you've left your mark
and its warmth and sweetness will haunt my memory
if ever you go away
and as the shadows dance
by the fire's glow
I'm loving this romance
and glad we took the chance to care
a penny for your thoughts
a fortune in your smile
and as the evening fades
my worries pass away
soothed by the way you make this house a home

Circles on the Floor

All night long
Over and over again
We danced
In circles on the floor
We held hands
And each other close
Only letting go
To place the needle
Back in the groove
We would return 
Where we stood still
Holding hands
And each other close
Until the music
Moved through the static
We kissed
And caressed
Again and again
Until we danced
Circles on the floor

Eye must love ewe.

Eye must love ewe. 
Eye must love ewe . 
Sometimes it seems that ewe have gone 
Sometimes it seems like eye am alone 
Sometimes eye wonder how ewe are 
Sometimes eye cry and wish for love 
Sometimes eye seem to ewe that eye am not someone but still eye am a human 
trying still sitting and crying and wishing and hoping and knoeing that ewe still 
love me. 
Sometimes it is very hard to love me. 
Sometimes today should be tomorrow or mabe even yesterday. 
Sometimes it is hard to see the middle of the day. 
Sometimes it is the end of time in the beginning of the day. 
This is a sadness not a madness and it will soon go away when eye have ewe 
again. 
For eye must love ewe.

Restless Head

outside, in arrows of shadow, 
   darkness rides out from skyscrapers

      that loom across the grid of streets,
         puncturing this day that hangs unsure

            in this distending late afternoon light;


                 she glances around the room,
                    floor polished by their bare feet,

                       pillows, bed sheets in knowing disarray,
                          again, on him her restless head rests

                             in this distending late afternoon light.

Too many cooks spoil the broth is the adage eye have heard it all my life. The 
cook one is not used to sharing the pot the cook two has arrived and she is trying 
to survive and the hair is the fur flying up on the first cook to arrive as a batter up 
not ready to give up the batter in the broth. Please to the cook one try to share yes

open somehow eye do not want the cook two to win but she has to survive for all 
of us to live cannot we be generous and share all our time eye will never give up 
the broth must be hot and so ready to serve only time can erase the bad taste 
that the second cook brought. Please keep the broth simmering in the pot and 
keep try to keep me ici lest eye die without broth without love.

Love Thy Word(s)!


From taunting the bee, 
I paused awhile and stared
at them, a couple. 

She was yelling at him.

Curse words of her sunk, deeply 
into his heart, yet he managed though
to smile. And while I was 

cowering in silent fear,

he approached her, like 
a grounded child and then 
kissed her.

When whirlwind subsided, finally 
their splendiferous rite continued, 
my ole spirits sung, with such relief.

“Alleluia to the heaven’s sky!”

…for I won’t be 
choosing in which cup 
I must drink.

In my ear.

Like a herd of wild horses running wild in Montana open prairie my heart races when your
around,
like a golden California sunset in early June I melted into the ground,
I watch as your hair falls to your shoulders and brush your face,
like northern lights in Alaska you light up any dark space,
like the snow in the Colorado mountains your touch cascades over me,
and for a New York  moment time stood still,
and my heart you filled,
as the sweet winds that blow in the mountain top pines 
you whispered "I'm so glad your mine."

The Noonday Orator

In a Sunday wintry air
The pigeons, the sparrows 
And the mocking birds 

Without array 
Congregated themselves 
Outside the family house
 
Listening, intently 
To the noonday oration 
Of Her Majesty, the Queen

Whilst I, I quickly picked
The various colors and shapes 
Of myself, my dignity

Shortly thereafter
She, fumingly, dropped them off
Through the guiltless window

The Lovers

I like your eyes, a cornflower blue.
You do like my dimple, a double.
I’m a poet, and meant just for you.
You’re my avid fan, an inspiration.
Till death do us part, our  promise.

We’re lovers, by day and by night.
We watched the sunset, we kissed.
We had differences, and we fought.
We reconciled, then, we made love.

But lately, 
I don’t understand you;
Is there someone else!?

Non Cheri, just I’m not feeling well.
I’m having your baby, two months.

O gee, I thought….

End Of Love

 End Of Love 


When time has come 

and eye have to say goodbye forever

the time we had will matter not

the context and the content

all that will ever matter is what ewe did to me

the stuff eye have inside

the love thing that helps me beat mye heart

the purple wings inside

oh ewe mye heart

the way ewe tried to kiss it to make it better

The end of love.

I love pARME

I love pARME is what the letter to Santa will say.

One hair of head no cold a smile instead.

One long leg and then one more.

Two arms to hold.

One woman of love and riches keeps me warm.

One love inside.

Purple wings beating beside the thumping of my heart.

Early christmas can be a smile.

Captured with devices but meant as love from far inside.

I love pARME is what my letter to Santa must say.

One woman made of love.

The ONLY Christmas Present that eye want.

Borne

BORNE 
Borne twice to be ressurrected only once. 
Eye am a victum of society. 
A causualty of the war on poverty. 
I was born once of a woman and then 
again by a dead man. 
Eye can not explain the place that I am in. 
It is not the cradle or the grave. 
The only way I can behave is to be 
alone again.But wait? 
Living without love has changed me from 
what I am become. 
I need love again to be an actual man. 
A song that I sung in the desert one day 
is the melody that play in me. 
An Angel of mercey SHE calls to me. 
I here Parme. 
EYE can hear ewe my parme.

Insecure

Now that I am yours,
do you still, secretly, follow me?
Wherever I go, hiding 
yourself
every time I stopped walking 
and look back…to take 
a glimpse of you;
You thought that I noticed not 
your shadow, relentlessly 
catching-up in all steps I make.

Now that I am yours,
do you still, secretly, check my wallet?
If, your lovely photo stocked in it 
was replaced;
Or, perhaps you’re hoping 
to see love notes, from your rivals; 
Or, any suspicious phone number
hidden
in-between 
the bills.

Now that I am yours,
you remind me of a gray past… 
that is when my father run
out of love, 
for my mother;
Isn’t it enough, for you, to believe in me?
Or maybe, 
just maybe, you desire to be 
exactly, like my mom
living in her own ghost.

T.G.I. F!

Can I see him now…
Today is Friday, have you forgotten it?

Can I see her now…
Today is Friday, have you forgotten it?

I won’t take no as an answer,
Today is Friday, have you forgotten it?

I want to embrace them, both of them.
I can see in their eyes, they want to embrace me, too. 

I missed them a lot. Thank God, today is Friday!
Have you forgotten it?

I don’t need to challenge what you’ll say,
For today is Friday, have you forgotten it?

Thou, we know that they’re ours, forever;
But today till Sunday, they’re only mine.

I’ll cook his favorite riz Cantonese;
And, I’ll make a Cesar’s salad, her weakness.

I can do it better, than anyone else, you’ll see;
I’ll provide them the best thing a father can give.

Simply, ‘cos I love them, my own blood, with all my heart
Thank God, today’s is Friday! Have you forgotten it?

Come on kids, hop into my taxi; 
And we’ll go to my place, your old home.

It Is This-

It is anything and everything
   The song of the soul singing within
      A child’s laugh playing their games
         The suns warmth on the face in April
            The peaks of the Appalachians
It is staring down the Grand Canyons cliffs
   Unharvested endless plains of Montana
      Walking in the gentle rains of summer
         Setting sun in the middle of the Atlantic
            It is these I rarely recall…

It is that first gift given of your smile
   Endless days walking holding hands
      The gentle peace deep within Hazel eyes
         Her sultry glance of passion burning brightly
            The rhythmic breathe while she sleeps
It is the ease of laughter she shares with me
   The manner of her walk as she comes and goes
      Her gentle caress steadying as I lose myself to fear
          Those sacrifices made with the gift of children
              An undying faith held…


It is this I see within my wife…
…Beauty unbound

A contrived poem is like a woman in love she wants more than she deserves 
and never gets enough
But seems satisfied with love if she has heart. there is two types of women one 
cold and one hot. one gets love the love inside the other does not.
Guess which one ewe aer to me today
The one that loves the one that has the one that satisfies herself with me.
The ewe that feeds my love with kiss and want she is the one eye want yes ewe it

Crimson Mind

      
      he finds himself  wishing he were inside 
        an indigo cavern in a dense rain forest, 

          wearing violet sunglasses at 2 a.m., 
            just forgetting anything and everything 

            but for the throbbing inside his chest,
              the crooning inside his drowsy head,

                in his own crimson mind;


      he cannot quite conjure up his own
        setting for his own point of view;

        cannot quite find his own metaphors
          for his own recurrent, nagging needs;

          a dark-blue  fog swirls slow, dimming
            the sun, not the glow of her absence,

              in his own crimson mind.

Acceptance Is DifficultY

Acceptance Is DifficultY. 
Hard for me to share.VerY DifficultY. 
Places poems rhymes and times. 
Women that I never ever saw. 
Some idea of missing what I never knew. 
Clouds aer linned with silver 
and with lightening too. 
Acceptance of a future memory. 
Pining for a lost childhood. 
Living in the present past. 
Turning back inside myself, 
running in the straitest line, 
marking lines of darkness, 
trailing fears behind me. 
Calenders aer marked in time. 
Fishing has to bee 
done early 
in the mourning.

eye wanted to make a device of great swelling words like a balloon 
a poem of greater purportions than actuality 
and somehow the simple thoughts of love

much different than started from

but never dies

Left behind

My eyes on the edge of yesteryear
Feel the breeze on my skin
A feather left behind a whisper

Fate brushing through my long black hair
Under the sun

One afternoon in the night

Alone of my unspoken wish
They for the soul
Still do in dream
Calling out to my own

Lost in the prairie grass

East my head and silent eyes
Call out softly 
I will always love you

But the winds still
Wonder so
For that pray

The Corners Of My Heart

The Corners Of My Heart 

I had to make a picture for my love. 
Not for a locket or a fixture , 
but for Her memory of me , so we could remember we. 
The thing was not contrived or planned 
 A man 
he grabbed His laptop and His camera. 
I did NOT remove my hat. It was the thing most proud of. 
The first thing that my babay did , 
was tell me I should have flipped my lid. 
Next time take off the hat , the hair 
is mostly where I need to see. 
Go figure that.  It must be a woman thing, 
my friend pointed out to me , 
My hat , said I , was what I wanted HER to see , 
a man thing , I slyly added. 
Next picture will be me , of course, 
without the thing. But listen , here 
is where the love comes in to this poem. 
I begin to smile.  I tried to smile at the camera. 
But the muscles in my Jaw , just would NOT let that happen. 
Not at all. I felt the smile begin 
it was in the corners of my heart. 
and somehow not even planned , it made it to my eyes, 
and then , my babay shined. 
It had started in my heart and then 
came out up to my face, 
and then the smile was in my eyes.

why eye can be a poet

why eye can be a poet 
why eye can be a poet 
eye was not rich 
or even famous not built like some gREEKgod 
Not gifted much but almost worldly 
And almost taken by the sins of lust 
Created once to be a finite thing of dust 
But recreated in the image of GODS own son 
This JESUS who has died upon the cross 
He told me in his actions to have faith 
He told me not in words but in his deeds 
Charlax is a poet please write these words 
That pleases me and tell the violette 
That she is LOVE and nothing can be better 
For a poet than to have a violet love. 
This JESUS that eye have yes he is GOD. 
And the violet ewe is now my love.

The Labyrinth

Swallowing 
My timidity 
With a long 
Shot of puff 

Amidst a sea of Jasmines
Sitting on wooden vases 

Rippling
The smile 
I hardly wear 
With warm 

Swaying lips-- so tender
Yet, as I dragged myself 

To outlast 
The whims 
Of doubts--
Inside me

My mate came, with question 
Marked on her face, in protest

Monster

Anything with more than one head 
Is a monster, a beast yoked to beast,
Bull-headed and stubborn;
Each going its own way
At its own pace
Hindering the other.
Though joined at the hip,
Legs buck and heads butt
To take control to take the lead;
But another in the field
Is pulling their reigns.
Standing behind the plow
Forcing them in directions
For his deep furrows in the ground;
And when they stop or stray,
He snaps and tightens the chords
Whipping them with the swift scourge
Of his command.  As they bay
Under burden again and again
Pressured to steer 
As one to get the job done...
Yoked together at the neck,
Unequally, until...
The one should love
And the other should submit,
Or at the end of the day
When they are separated,
Each beast is by itself...
The two-headed monster is no more.

Unhealthy Fantasies

He will not love
He will not honor her
He will not yield to her needs
He will not give her what she wants
So she thinks of someone who can

She will not submit
She will not bow to him
She will not yield to his needs
She will not give him what he wants
So he thinks of someone who can

Further and further they drift apart
With craving souls and burning lusts
Temptations mounting everywhere
And they succumb to the ones in mind

In darkened rooms raging passions
Take hold of their private places
Til ideal faces and ideal bodies
Release the tension temporarily

She's taken to worlds
She flies in the heavens
She's the moon that bursts into stars
She comes down but sees her winding sheets
And that she has crashed there all alone

He's riding the waves
He's walking on the waters
He's Poseidon on seas with mermaids
Then letting go, falling back to depths below
He still burns alone for satisfaction

Because though they can think of someone who can
They can't... fulfill needs and desires with just sex 

They need and want each other's appeal
They need to love and submit 
They need to honor and bow 
They need to yield...
Til their wishes become reality

Love Is

Love is
What we need to do
Musts
We have to do
To say, to give
Far above our own hearts
Willingly
For someone else's
Edification and good pleasure
Yielding
Far more than
What we want to do
Desires 
We long to do
To say, to give
From our own hearts
Good pleasure and edification
For someone else's
Love... is
We do both

Future.

Who can say what in the future will be,

   Opposites attract if that is so,
   then we have a long way to go,
   but if some thing or one, should come between,
  then don't let go and say,

  Let us sit down and talk,
  I promise I wont walk.

For The Love of Money

This side of town lives in evening darkness The people care not for courtesy, just the green Any fold of cash would prompt sullen eyes to awaken As in this case, on that fateful night in late November He seemed misplaced, not belonging to our area His shoes were shined, almost new, while a suit he donned Keeping his left hand in his pocket at all times he made his way What was he looking for? Seems we’ll never know, now will we? His body was found in the alley off of 10th and Sloan All was in tact except for, of course, his wallet, found ten feet away Identification clearly showed he should not have been here His residence was the other side of the tracks, nice town It was found he left behind a wife and two college age kids Upon interviewing, the wife stated that their anniversary was in a day There are many places to get hot jewelry around here In fact I have a few connections of my own that offer discounts It makes you think, what was it he was wanting, a cheep gift? Again, we’ll never know, but know this The wad of cash that now takes residence in my pants pocket Allows me the pleasure to know I’ll be eating today and perhaps next week

Preparation

Oh, I can see her perfectly;
the smile, the eyes, her figure.
It makes my efforts hasten
as I prepare to meet her.
A splash of the Obsession
as she is my obsession, 
as I hope to tease her 
with scent.
I select my best slacks, not
too loose, snug, but yet flattering
as I hope to tease her with sight.
I even moisten my shaved skin 
with lotion as I hope to tease her 
with touch. Though, my heart tells 
me loudly it’s not teasing that 
is being done rather 
tempting is more 
like it, as I prepare 
to meet
the one who tempts me.

Sabbath Saturday Knight 
Eye and ewe exist in hearts apart 
ee'n though eye love ewe so much it seems eye cant contain the thing 
in heart. The fact remains that early must eye depart 
for transportation on the SaturdaY. 
It means eye love ewe even more the time we have to spend is short 
 a Knight in splendid armour ewe should see me 
the jacket and the hat and the green cargo pants 
make women PALE and very faint. 
The moral of this story we have a date 
every Saturday nite that we have in the ever and iff. 
AS soon as we aer complete in this new milleniaum. 
Please kiss my hands but not my feet and do not weep 
For ewe aer made of pure and sweet. 
The love we have can wait for fate and blossom then we will. 
The poet and poese will fill the want.

TrueLOve

TrueLOve 

A Tightening in the throat, 
a shifting in the sand. 
A movement: 
 near my heart ------------------when. 
I hear ewe name or see ewe name on the letterhead. 
A snail mail letter or just an email too. 
Anything at all from ewe causes me to change 
the way I sit the way I move the way I seem to be. 
Completely at ewe mercy is how i want to stay, 
i love ewe i love ewe i love ewe 
a broken record stuck in a groove 
words of love and time to tell ewe 
there would be no end to days of love 
theres only one thing left to say 
TRUE LOVE

ETERNITY

 ETERNITY 
Eternity 
How can a man hold water in the hand? 
does it run and drip and gone… 
How can a man live again? 
and live forever then… 
Forever is a moondrop a lightbeam a dream… 
Life is like a fraction of the aeon 
the never ending particle the spinning article… 
Never needing sleep never needing wheat 
but having very much having all the love… 
Starting over to do a thing and starting over 
and then starting over again… 
Without end no end no stop no more halt 
no lame thing no pain… 
No need for anything all needs provided 
making flowers grow… 
Meeting people that were dead 
and now alive for evermore… 
Water needs a container and to be contained 
a cup without a saucer is such a lame thing… 
Eye want to go to Heaven only after 
only after eye marry the poor mans daughter. 
Give me an eternity of love 
Bless my only one. 
Bless my love. 
Eternity.

Goodnight Kiss

That meaningless kiss
goodnight,
That means so much,
you might,
Realize it only when
it's gone,
And you have to carry on,

Whilst you rifle through
the archive of your life,
And try to make sense
of you and wife,
With but slightly warm
love through memory,
You may just start
to see,

The days of hand holding
are gone,
Of laughter, and of song,
And that meaningless
kiss goodnight,
Would suddenly feel so right

I lay in bed each night,
Holding my memories,
oh, so tight,
And sob quietly in
my fright,
Hoping some day it
will all be right.

She Stood Behind Mee

 She Stood Behind Mee 
She Stood Behind Mee 
 
 
She was came up behind me and the way eye knoe that it was ewe 
The first thing was the odor of a flower it is true a flower made of love and 
fashioned out of time to smell like baby powder so divine and so sublime. 
Then the other clue was this she said HI HI it's Me and HI Charlie 
She would come into the library and she would walk up behind the mee where 
you couldn't see ewe 
  and she would be singing very softly 
  Drink to mee only with thine eyes 
And then my back stiffened up with surprise and eye knoe it must be her again 
for water now cascaded from my eyes and eye slowly turned looking both scared 
and happy at just exactly the same time. 
and then we kiss and then we kiss and then we kiss she stood behind mee

Can eye Christian?

Can eye Christian?
Can a man live and grow and eat and sleep can he even love? eye am reminded 
of a MOSES growing up in the desert after Egypt he was skilled the BIBLE says in 
all the arts of LOVE? He got a wife one day at well and sent the other people 
packing with his STICK. Eye am sure they loved and lived. In the old same 
fashion of the world.
In the tent and out in the desert some making love a man and woman after all is 
said and done. Can a man have love even a man a gentile dog not overly 
concerned with fate just living and hoping for the future of iff and ever someday.
To have my violette flower to live and love again.
They ate meat and a Passover meal and loved and kissed as many people do. 
Please let it happen for the mee and especially the ewe.
The only thing that made MOSES a Christian was his name.
King David was the same. This would be my prayer to you today?
Can eye Christian?

When You Love Somebody

When you love somebody,
You will love in truth and in deed the way you desire
	to be loved by the other,
And you will suffer long and be kind
Until you find that all that that person has and is 
	is being given to you;

You will not be envious
When you love somebody.
You will both say good words and perform great and small
	selfless acts of love,
But you won't push yourself forward to boast of them
Even if most of them seem to go unnoticed or unappreciated
	by your significant other;

You won't be conceited or arrogant
When you love somebody.
You will honor and respect and prefer the other
	and his or her interests before your own.
So you will not be rude
Even if you're used or neglected by your one and only
	for his or her own pleasure and ease;

You will not be self-seeking
When you love somebody.
You may be offended or sinned against with words
	or by actions seventy times seven,
But you will not be easily angered
Avoiding the danger and the appearance of dissimulated love,
	you forgive as if there's nothing to forgive;

You will keep no record of wrongs
When you love somebody.
You communicate and disclose yourself and your feelings
	without fear or disputing,
So you will have no pleasure in evil
Around other people or when you're alone together,
	so peace is kept with understanding;

You will rejoice with the truth
When you love somebody.
You will sacrifice as if every sacrifice is but a reasonable gift,
	even laying down your own life;
You will always protect the person
And never reject the person, neither regret nor forget the vows
	you've promised in truth and honesty;

You will always believe in the person
When you love somebody.
You will walk by faith and not by sight until you're like-minded
	and have the same love for one another,
So you will always hope
And learn to cope and bear the infirmities of the weaker one
	until there comes a change;

You will always persevere
When you love somebody.
You will be strong, showing the way love ought to be;
	knowing you're not perfect, but striving
You will conquer and overcome evil by doing good
And love the way love would, knowing full well that 
	without the power of love you cannot love;

You will always endure for the future set before you
When you love somebody.
You will have faith, hope and never be put to shame
	because love will never fail.

Loving You

Sometimes, I wonder why I loved you.
Why couldn't I see it?
With your eyes so full of hatred,
I was beaten, bruised, torn, and bloodied.
Gongs a ding dong.
I made love to you, out of fear,
I scrubbed and cleaned, just to please you.
On edge, when I heard your truck.
My fear grew, my heart raced.
The hairs on my neck stood on end.
A black hole in my soul,
opened with your touch.
Cut off from the ones who loved me,
you locked me away, like thieved booty.
I could never leave, I had nowhere to go.
I was alone.
Finally, gathered what was left of my sanity,
I left.
I trembled as each second passed,
wondering if you were following.
You lurked in the shadows.
You haunted my dreams,
the One I loved.
Looking back, I wonder...
How did I ever love you.

Fantasy Of The Two

Fantasy woman tends the world for her man
As one they blindly walk gazing
Living within their paradise

Fantasy mans iron grip holding tautly
Latched into his very existence
Living within her eyes

Fantasy woman her outlooking precise
Each step measured and calculated
Living how she learned

Fantasy man labors and toils through days
Hastening to behold her beauty
Living by his unwritten book

These capricious two ever living for the other
Clutching to reverie of chance
Living on shoestring love

Fantasy woman whispers hot to her lover
Passions of consequence
Living in purity

Fantasy man rejoices to heaven each night
Humbling merit for his godsend 
Living in the moment

Lady of dreams loves her gentleman fancy
One spirit they travel forward
Living and dying as one…

Don't Say a Word, Just Leave

Here I am, 
Again,
In awkward solitude,
Slaving myself thinking
…and thinking;
But, 
The mind won’t say a thing;
See 
What you’ve done, 
How could you make them cry?
I used to see 
Their smile,
But right now is anger and sadness
They feel;
You’ve caused the pain;
Don’t say a word, just leave!
Go
Go… to the man that’ll give you wealth;
That’s what you wanted;
If not,
You won’t be hurting us, when 
I was in Saudi, 
Working day and night
Just
For us, all.

The love of my life.

                                               
                               The love of my life
                                     Is my wife.
                          However there is another
                               woman I adore.
                             She has four wheels
                                     two doors.
                             Instead of blond
                        she is metallic blue.
                      She hasn't got long legs
                           the wide tires do.
                       She is my brand  new Porsche
                           and I love her so.
                     I promised I would get her when I 
                                          was young.
                          Now I am old and gray
                         she is here to stay.
                       Some say I pamper her
                        more than the wife.
                     Some even say
                  she has taken over my life.
                What ever people say
                      its not true
                  I love both of you.

Instant Karma

Instant Karma 
Lenin and Lennon and Lennon sisters. 
And linen on beds made for people who have none. 
Plastics and whistles and bullets. 
Things that aer growing to eat in the wild. 
Wonderings tryings pleaseings and mistletoes. 
Seasons of Riches dance in the snow. 
Freezing and burning and freezing again. 
Torn away from all but the wind. 
The different colors blend into one. 
Blindness is darkness not purple or found. 
Karma can come at any moment of time. 
The love that ewe want is sublime. 
Words aer just poets bullets in time. 
The Charlax is famous again all the time. 
Rhyming the places we have already been. 
Making mye destiny into only my friend. 
Mushrooms aer deadly when eaten in haste. 
Salted and cooked they slide out of sight. 
The meatloaf is lovely my deer venison. 
NO one can kiss a man but his beau. 
The flavor I want is Parme,to taste. 
The end of my life is to knoe. 
The Wizard is still under snow. 
Eye have escaped to give love. 
The battlements waiver away from the world. 
The table is set for the troll.

Always

I cannot remember yesterday
The days without you near
I cannot think of loneliness
It’s as if
I woke up and you were there

The lights eternal in the sky
Shone brightly there for years
Your love that so well holds my heart
Has trampled darkened fears

It was as if you were always a part
As if your heart, you always shared
I can’t remember times before
It’s as if
I woke up and you were there

So, life can’t be, there’d be no flame
If you could not share with me
As time permits us, our hearts dance
In love, which sets us free

Searching for archeological assessments.

Just one white Stone.   
I have a flower vine with me running all around me with roots 
and AH the thing has found me there. 
There seems to be a flowere near where my heart used to reside. 
Risen, Risen, Risen from the Dust, I cried. 
My New Namme, What is it? Am eye lust , or NO; 
just forgiven Jesus, ascending into Heaven, 
where comfort is a cup of cold water and love. 
NO wait,  I see mye place is near: the door of Heaven; 
and She is waiting  for me there, mye flower, mye Parme. 
For Me,  For poor me,  we love like we did here in Heart, 
and word and must we never part again. 
A bed of Whiteflowers and violets,  underneath both of our heads. 
A Whiteflower is there at rest.  A maiden blest. 
Part of mye new family. 
The spirits of all time. 
Violet and Mary and forgiven Jesus.

Whispers from here . . .

Everyday peels back another layer in forever
I pray for you every time I lay down my tobacco
I ask that you are safe
I ask that you will always be watched over
And lastly I pray 

That you will come back to me
With every whisper to Creator I pray
I ask

Every night rolls back another shade of eternity
And with every pinch of tobacco I lay down
My heart cries out 
My soul screams across the feet of Creator
My body quakes and quivers from here
And lastly I whisper 

Please bring her back to me
With every flake of my soul I cry to Creator
I weep

Bring back the day to me
Bring back the stars to me
Bring back the whispering wind across the sky
Bring back the air I once breathed
Bring back my soul

Every breaking day . . . 
I pray 
One cupped whisper 
For you
Just you 
Only you

Always . . . forever

A love so dearly felt. 
An embrace of warmth surpassing lust. 
The only fear is never sharing passion.

We are the mirror of one another.

Our love is sparked by infinite flame inside of dust.

Life Is Not A Poem

Life Is Not A Poem
Life is not a poem eye cannot make it rhyme it has no sway 
Or motion nothing to decide.
Live and pray then love
Eat and leave the past behind
Love and hurt and love
Hope that you are taste
Hope that she can want you
Even in her haste
Hope that she will want you
In her places that she goes
Hope that she can use you
To mend the heart so full of holes the loss of all the past and all the life that she 
had then to leave behind her losses and her darkness for today she made me 
smile real life is not a poem and is painful after all is said and done the smile

Don't Procrastinate

Life's sun is setting and as I leave,
a loving mate to soon will grieve.
If I but had more time,
If I but had more time.

Unimportant things I had to do,
leaving precious little time for you.
If I but had more time, 
If I but had more time.

As now upon my deathbed I lay,
the words I have but cannot say.
If I but had more time,
If I but had more time.

Those many things I left unsaid,
are now not possible from the dead.
If only I'd taken the time,
If only I'd taken the time.

My body now lowered into the ground,
my spirit's gone and already crowned.
There was so little time,
There was so little time.

This wisdom I leave amid your sorrow,
don't put things off until tomorrow.
For there is so little time,
For there is so little time.

For those who read these lines of prose,
give someone you love a single red rose.
While you still have the time,
While you still have the time.

Serendipity

Planners plan and dreamers dream,
plotters plot and schemers scheme,
but I can tell you with utmost certainty:
not everything can be explained that easily.

Let me tell you a tale to drive home my point.

There was this bookworm who often came to the library
where one day he caught sight of a chick in the hallway;
she returned his gaze and something must have sparked,
it happened quite so easily just like a walk in the park.

“Hi,” he said and demurely she answered “Hello”.
“You’re a new face here, aren’t you?” he inquired.
“Yes, but aren’t you, too?” the girl coyly replied...
and they burst out giggling, breaking the ice.

He gave her his name and she told him hers,
both discovering they loved old Agatha Christie;
the very reason why they were in that same library -
to learn about spies, intrigues and life's mysteries.

“How about a quick bite in the cafeteria?” he then asked.
“That’s not bad at all,” she winked, “as long as you pay.”
between sips of soda they spilled out tidbits in their lives 
like long-lost friends making up for days long past.
 
He asked her for her number which she gave right away,
then begged if he could drop by her place any time soon,
to which she answered “I’ll shoot you if you don’t come”;
just like that, no sweat, it was a breeze and they were on.

Before you know it the young boy and the shy girl got hitched
and after twenty five happy years they had four crazy kids;
don’t you laugh at this tale, I know what I’m talking about -
that good-looking guy is me and that pretty girl is my wife!

You’ve been patient and I don’t want to bore you with a long story,
I know PoetrySoup has a limit to how much I am allowed to say;
folks, just remember the moral of this story: not everything in life
can be attributed to planning, dreaming, plotting and scheming -
don’t ever dismiss this wonderful thing called Serendipity.

Woman, My Woman

I didn't think love could be this way,
I never dreamed you'd belong to me,
but what could I really say?

A fantasy I was reaching for,
finally I know you to the core
behind this closed door.

Tonight I'm in paradise as you sigh
 "Oh, take me", thrilling me to know 
that you are mine, tamed, branded, 
stranger to passion no more.

When I kiss your sweet, ruby lips
and touch your hot, fevered body,
I feel like exploding.

Caressing you with feathery touch,
tracing the softness with my fingers,
I peer at the ocean of your mystery.

Your tender breasts I like to adore,
your trembling belly I want to bite,
I won't miss your other secret site.

You raise me up like no one could,
you open up like a woman should,
you reveal yourself to me.

I love your scent when you're on fire,
I love to hear your helpless moans,
I love your sharp nails on my back
as you willingly surrender.

You lead me through heaven's gate
and woman, my beautiful woman, 
for its bliss I cannot wait.

You've Rescued Me

I swim through a dream

and where only the whirling  
   memory of your trusting face 
      seems to somehow see me 
         through  the slow motion 

of aimless, random flux 
   of the unknown, the unknowable, 
      and my own scream seems 
         throughout to reach a peak,

echoing as a fearful falsetto, 
fading off as a muted panic.



Morning sunbeam the tinge 
   of yellow daisies awakens 
      the cold window pane, yet 
        I still recall that in the darkest 

sanctum of a jet-black night, 
   hysterically I struggled to break 
      through an unbreakable, 
        invisible membrane 

of a suffocating bubble 
   in a most terrifying nightmare,
      but I woke up at the soft touch 
         of a tender hand on my face, 

yes, your whisper, and now, 
the  warmth of your embrace !

but his opposite one a whole lot of give and a little bit of take and satisfied with 
nothing more nor less than love and as he makes love to his love she takes it 
and is satisfied with love and does not matter more to her that he is small or not

A NEW LOVE

A NEW LOVE 
Although we have never touched, 
I am not narrcissus. 
The reflection that I have is mirrored in ewe eyes. 
I can not give ewe lies, 
as so many women seem to want, 
I can only be so cold as a lover should be, 
telling only truth and holding only love in half-formed solitude. 
Not the passion that ewe are used to want. 
But the long term love a man can kiss and hold. 
And come back to kiss again, 
and want some more. 
Not the same old story of the boy loses the girl. 
But,the kissing in the dark to take my breathe away, 
the wishing and the wanting and the praying,(Pause) 
and remember pleease,and do not evere forget. 
Love is never wrong.

When I Lied

I hear 
The rumbling cloud,
As I sit
On a rocking chair;
Long silence…
Then, the rain fall, like angel’s tears;
Today’s sky is gray, for me, and for my god; 
But, when the sun start to peek,
And, smile like before;
I know,
She has forgiven me.

First Lovers

In the Garden of Eden,
Planted where Heaven and Earth touched
For a moment, was God's first man.
He brought out its beauty with flowers and fruit
In preparation for the unsuspecting first lady-
But Adam was the one astonished.
When he awakened out of a deep sleep,
He saw before him...  Alas!  A vision,
A woman fashioned and formed 
More perfectly than any ideal he had dreamed of.
And God gave him her hand in marriage
To rule and reign in their kingdom.
They worked together as one and lived in love
(The one only for the other
And the other only for the one)
With no one else in their world.
Each other is all they saw; the man and his wife
Communed with God in the cool of the day.
They were naked and felt no shame,
And this was Paradise.

Me beg for her.
She makes me want
Her even more. I cannot
Stop wanting her.
No, I need her so.
Cannot be without
Her, as she cannot
Be without me, oh
The beauty shared
The love, the care 
I...am complete in
Her presence, with
Her as my other half
She is my fire on a cold 
Day. Showing love, guiding
The way……To heaven we fly 
To share in the beauty of the sky.
Two lovers 
Flying to

True Love - Dedicated to my Husband

A true love is
Someone who can gaze into your eyes and know what you are thinking
Someone who feels your own pain as if it was their own
Someone who can finish your sentences
Someone who understands you inside and out
Someone who has seen the darkest side of you & loves you more because of it
Someone who would give their life for you
Someone you can trust with all your secrets
Someone who will treasure every intimate detail you have disclosed to them
Someone who knows your inner child and the adult you have become

Someone who will be by your side through the darkness and the light
Someone who will hold you when you are scared, lonely and crying
Someone who will love you when you are penniless
Someone who will hold your hand on your death bed
Someone who is always there for you no matter what
Someone who can be your fortress when you need strength
Someone who will love you forever no matter what
Someone who will love each flaw you have as much as your greatest attributes
Someone who will hold your hand through life's journey
Staying by your side regardless of what obstacles cross your path

If you have what I described
You should hold it close
You should cherish your love
Because you have found something
That comes along once in a lifetime
That many of us will never find
That many of us dream for

Reality

Reality 

Cut to the chase,tell it like it is,don`t hold back. 
AckkkAckkkAckkk,someone is coming and I give yew the sack. 
Life is not worthless just meant to be 
not iff ewe knoe ; not iff ewe knoe ; but to be: 
Someone to love, someone to listen, and someone to hold! 
When someone is sent from above. 
A Heart is a fragile thing 
beating by grace and by faith. 
Everyone promises everyone fakes, 
no one`s immune from the snakes. 
I have found summer but not in a smile? 
Yes for I have found summer 
pleease babay 
Chat me awhile. 
AS I pretend that we`re married.

In the realm of all the human possibilties

that even ewe have now discovered

For deep within the shadows of my heart

that i must go there in my future

Permit Me

Deliver me into the arms of the one
That has renewed my hearts life
My life’s now begun

Let me gaze upon her beautiful eyes
As they see me completely
Accept no surprise

Let me know the scent of her skin
As the air provides it lift
To my nose, there within

Let me hear her words softly in my ears
As her breath enters my world
Releasing my fears

Let me know then, the wetness of a kiss
As her lips press on mine
No better than this

Let me know her in a most loving way
Where two hearts are one
Rising at day

Because Scars Remain

It may have not been meant, when you said,
"I never really loved you" in that tone.
But let me tell you this, "I was wounded!"
The audacity, though by anger, to say that!
Words can certainly cut deeper than a knife,
especially from the mouth of a loved one.
So, please think before you say and do.
Please also act, instead of reacting.
When we share anger, I promise, too,
to allow my love to shine through
even though it's enveloped by a dark cloud.
May we never hurl insults or try to hurt,
because scars remain.
I love you always.

A Poet's Wife

Here I nestle, against a pillow, all by myself; 
As I wait for you, I‘ve finished watching 
A Mel Gibson film; the title 
I can’t even recall, for my attention is on you; 
Oh, something like this “what women really want?”
Anyway, does it matter to you?
I’m waiting…waiting and still waiting, 
Yet, you don’t want to come near me;
You float somewhere out there; outside this world,
Surely, where we can’t be together;
But if you heed me, on this water bed
We can share what you wanted to write;
How long should I wait?
Or, should I go ahead?
Just a good night kiss is all I ask;
Is that too much, too hard to give;
But your tapping sound is all that I hear;
Crumpled papers, too many; the light’s still bright,
Should I dim it, for you, to be more romantic?
Ah, I can’t take it any longer!
Will I be waiting here forever more?
I don’t think so, ‘cos my eyes, now sleepy;
Honey, good luck on your writing… 
And me, I will close my eyes to sleep!

A Letter To Violet

A Letter To Violet 
A Letter To Violet 

A man must examine himself, to see iff he haves faith. 

I could almost never wait for faith, betimes eye am blinded by my love. 

I have always been truthfull to ewe, never hiding the discomforts of my flesh, 

Iff I was angry or upset ewe always knoe it. 

And so when I say the words ewe long to hold, I love ewe.  STOP. 

Then think of fields of flowers never ending all purple and smiling unbidden. 

For that flower growing deep inside of me 

mostly hidden in my heart, 

is still ewe, 

my one and only heart. 

I looked up in the dictionary under Violet. 

It simply stated : Violet the definition is: 

def. one. n.noun= LOVE

Feeling Heroic

no, he cannot recall 

having felt this good, 

this heroic before.



the warm swirl of her lilting

          laughter deliciously lifts him up;

                    and he still cannot believe that

                              he can really make her laugh;



with amused chuckle, she grins

         expectantly, hanging on to every

                    word he says and, though he is

                             still half-way through the joke,



it seems that mirth bubbles up

         from her tummy to her lungs,

                    bursting in giggles and guffaws

                             of iridescent joy in her throat;


no, he cannot recall 

having felt this good, 

this heroic before.

Love sometime is missing ewe 
I'm blue but still alive 
All that rally matters most

A day a nite a day a nite again 
And worth more than all of them 
A word from ewe to tell me love 
And everyone okay 
The time will pass away anon 
Today into Today 
While eye am missing love.

Heinous Crime

With the windows of my soul,
I have made a covenant
Not to look lustfully at another girl.
Why then should I purchase another pearl?
Lest my mind be captive with imaginations
By eyes that would lead my reigns astray
To employ the principle of adulterers.
Thus, I will not let my heart be deceived;
Since roving eyes I do despise,
I set my face like a flint.
Why then should I think toward anyone else?
Or lay in wait at my neighbor's door?
I will willingly walk the way of good men,
Lest I commit the shameful sin
To be punished by the judges,
A fire that would consume me to destruction.
The seeds I sow would  be eaten by others,
And my offspring would be rooted out.
Thus, I will be mindful only of my wife.
Only seeing, touching, tasting her, I will bow to her.
She will only grind and desire my grain.
Why then should I think of any other woman?


Job 31:1-12

You are to Me

You are able to reach into my heart
Grip it, yet love it gently and sweet.
You are able to penetrate my thoughts
Resulting, my dear, in a night full of heat.
You have a way of knowing what to expect,
Always anticipating my every move.
You seem to control my often troubled heart
With every word spoken, you’re able to soothe.
See what you do to me, capturing me so,
Always letting me know you are there?
For you have found that place in my heart
That forever tells me, that you care.
Your love surrounds me on a cold winter’s day
And rekindles the embers of my fire.
You are my blanket, warm, safe and pleasing
And my object of every waking desire.

True Feelings

Sparkling, like the deepest blue sea
As the sun rises upon its vastness,
Her eyes reflect the essence of
True tranquility

Fragrant, as a garden filled with
Lilacs and roses just after a summer rain,
Her skin emits the scent of 
True sensuality

Succulent, as a harvest of Nappa grapes
Being picked for the finest of wines,
The taste of her soft skin incites
True voracity

Passionate, as a master painter
Would give of their life for the craft
She gives of herself offering
True ecstasy
