I understand the heart too well
Sometimes it frustrates so
It won't obey determined mind
Girl, it refuses to let you go
So keep pouring on water
Let it rain and let it pour
God I love your wet lips
Rain leaves me wanting more
So bring all the ice you can
Freeze me out with no replies
I beg you, please look away
Or tears you'll see from my eyes
If your new man is getting upset
With sweet songs for my pen
I promise I'll try to stop
But it's impossible to hold it in
Tell him I just write songs
That's what songwriters do
I know you won't tell him this
But you know that  . .... ...

Black Rain


Another rainy stormy night,
nothing will ever feel the same.
Thunder makes me fear with fright,
Theirs no way to call your name.
To be alone is no delight,
here I am alone with shame.
It runs trough me like day and night,
lonesome here for playing my game.
I wish you where here to hold me real tight.
Forgive me for I am  the only one to blame.

A darken rainy stormy night!
Here I whither away in the BLACK RAIN!
In that selfish moment I did not realize,
all I was doing was causing myself pain.
You took and shook me with a big surprise!
And, showed me that my cheating had nothing to gain.
With you in distance I lose my self,
sitting all alone in the BLACK RAIN.

Please stop the pain, its my love I want to gain.

Tears from me you wouldn't take.
It was my fault to take the fall.
It does not mean my love to you was fake.
Without you I feel real small.
The hurt runs deep~Deeper than a lake!
The hurt runs high~Higher than the tallest wall!
The hurt is heavy~something you can't shake!
The hurt is like a mystery~you can't solve at all! 

How these cloud posses my days,
I have no one to blame
If I knew exactly what to say,
I would not be feeling all this pain.
is here to stay!
I have lost what took long to gain.

please go away!
I want my lover to come back my way.

Bring on the Rain

There are places that I've been  
that you may never see
As the steady winds are blowing
this storm brews inside of me
But the strong hand that guides me
will surely see me through
As I walk within this darkness
There is nothing left to do

I see the storm clouds gather
as the thunder starts to roll
Lightening flashes all around 
as the droplets flood my soul
But when the rain has ended
the sun will shine once more
and I will then be stronger 
than I ever was before

So bring on the rain
let me cry these lonely tears
and release the pain
As the lightening strikes
this heart cries out again
I won't give in...
bring on the rain

As everything around me rages
onto my knees I fall
I cry out in desperation
"God help me through it all" 
Then this fury deep inside me
slowly starts to drift away
Though a steady rain is falling
I know I'll be okay

So bring on the rain
let me cry these lonely tears
and release the pain
As the lightening strikes 
this heart cries out again
I won't give in...
bring on the rain

Remember Me

The sun shines yes I know
A heavy gust as the wind wants to blow
Leaves flying high in the sky and then hitting the ground
The sun decides to fall as the moon decides to rise
As darkness begins to be all around 

Remember my smile as the sun that shines
Remember my breath as the wind blows
Remember my feelings as the moon begins to rise
Remember me even when I die

The fire burns everything in sight
But the rain rids its heat with all its might
The cold weather is now here
And the sun begins to disappear

Remember my love as the fire burns
Remember my pain as the rain falls
Remember my hugs as the weather gets cold and dry
Remember me even when I die

The breeze cools everything and everyone down
Even that sad person walking into town
Listen to music on the days you have a frown
And at night dream as you lay in your gown

Remember my passion as the breezes begins to settle
Remember my words as the music plays
Remember my inspiration when you start to dream
In the heavens I will be lifted up high
So remember me even when I die

Rainbows are for hope. 

Raindrops splatter 'gainst my window     
Music from the sky; 
Each crystal drop a mellow bell 
A gentle melody to tell     
me ...that your love is mine. 

 Sunlight scatters thru my window     
Warm touches sent to me 
Each photon beam a kiss from you 
Sent to me across the blue...     
 A comfort wished here tenderly. 

 April winds caress my window    
 Breath from clouds above; 
Daring me to share the passion, 
Give my heart in wild abandon,     
 Drinking deeply of your love. 

 Rainbows Bless my Open window      
Sun-drops & rain combined. 
The ends connecting us together 
Distances no longer matter...      
Out hearts are intertwined.

When it rain, it pours
It's like opening every doors
Whizzing wind, Whispering breeze
Makes your senses at ease.

When it rain it pours
It's like knocking every doors
Thunder here, lightning there
Awaking your sense somewhere.

When it rain it pours
It's like sweeping every floors
Homes are wet, walls have tears
Taking every dirt and fears.

for the listening

heres a brush, dont comb your hair
no need for touch, pictures float in air
words paint an image, with room to spare
skull cap open, bowl full of rare
no fools allowed, deep thoughts out loud
bow when I finished, no bowing down
no cowing out, holy cow sound
sacrificed lamb, ostracized bound
break ground no ground hogs found
clouds still there, shadows over town
colossus in distance, silver in a crown
rainstorm for a hat, shower till i drown
no ark necessary, I go with the flow
all art especially made with pain and soul
blood in the mix, sweat for the christening
hugs over sex, I don't rap for the listening

Silver Ships

Written May 31, 2013

The sun does rise
Over silver ships sailing in the sky
Rain on down on our parade
In a concrete jungle
The kids come out to play
Masked by this dreadful masquerade

A cosmic dance where stars collide
The kids and parents run to hide
Shelter from the enemy above
Who light up the sky with lightning bugs

The land is dark and the sky is black
Mothers pray the birds will not come back
Be it by barren land or vicious sea
Lord just hear our plea

The sun does rise
Over silver ships sailing in the sky
Rain on down on our parade
In a concrete jungle
The kids come out to play
Masked by this dreadful masquerade

A Farmer's Eyes and a Sailor's Shadow

A thorough yield
On a farm field of far east
It took me time to realize
How far I am to my far east of coast

Call of my weather
Call of my winds
I sailed further and farther
To my naked coasts
Naive songs, Nimble rains
Nile of rivers, Nascent clouds

Reaching this far
I kissed my earth
Ground of my grief
Glory of my ghosts
Glad is those leaves
However scanty they are

Cast is my shadows
No longer they hide
My colors and my figures
They cast numbers on stars
Measure their light
Scope my winters
Scale my summers
Scanty my rains
Scuttle I wish my springs

Now let me see my greens
Their leveling heights
Their leafy gaze
Their spiderly gesture
Their primordial texture
Now let me be slow
In company of my greens

I watch the sky begin to fill,
with clouds that roll and pitch until,
all Heaven seems so black and bleak,
then lightning makes a sudden streak,
and blows the southwind to its will.

The air so fresh it brings a high,
as I breath in the falling sky,
and darkened, all of space now seems,
engulfed in thundering that screams,
and makes the world think it could die.

The first raindrops now hit the ground,
the joy of it is all around,
each budding leaf breaks through its pain,
now free to come out in the rain,
and here is love that's seldom found.

Now falling fast and falling free,
blown in the wind that has to be,
the rain sets in and for the night,
a steady rhythm--cool and light,
and lulls to sleep the deep of me.

She said........It was really coming down
Right in front of me
My heart was so naive 
We neither one...could see
What you've had going on
While I sit at home

Something's out of sync
Could it be our heartbeats
These  blues are turning grey
Becoming tear streaked
But when that sun shines
I'm hanging these tears out to dry

The weather man, well he says...rain
As usual...again today
Drop after drop, I wish it would stop
Or just wash your memory away

I know you think...I'll still be waiting here
Just like it was before.....Me and these same old tears
But when that sun shines
I'm hanging these tears out to dry

When that sun shines
I'm hanging these tears out
When that sun shines
I'm tossing these fears out
Yeah, when that sun shines
I'm hanging these damn tears dry!!!

Passages to My Heart

Thunder echoes through the night
rumbles slightly…
Lightning flashes its bolt of light
ever lightly…
Rain on; rain on, life reigns on
till dawn; till dawn
till the break of dawn…
Love moves on 
freeing the passages to my heart…

The winding passage to my heart
Stores the secrets to our love
Love exists in no other part
When it is you I’m thinking of

Thunder echoes through the night
rumbles slightly…
Lightning flashes its bolt of light
ever lightly…
Kisses rest tender on my lips
so sweetly…
Caresses soft across my hips
Love moves on 
freeing the passages to my heart…

The winding passage to my heart
Stores the secrets to our love
Love exists in no other part
When it is you I’m thinking of

Thunder echoes through the night
rumbles slightly…
Lightning flashes its bolt of light
ever lightly…
Rain on; rain on, life reigns on
till dawn; till dawn
till the break of dawn…
Love moves on 
freeing the passages to my heart…

Love moves on 
freeing the passages to my heart…

With downpour hued in starlit gray, And fallen eyes are interlocked In drizzles where the torrent bites Till candles wane on a fabric soiled Her boudoir cluttered by the wind, Sighing a pitter-patter scream And on a chair, her drooped spine curves, Receding off so constantly Limbs tip tap rhythm on the floor; Alone, betrothed to lonely sheets How cold the gush in Summer's flight.

Dancing in the rain, drops on my face;
Not in a rush, I love this place.
Need an umbrella? I say not today
The kid inside, just wants to play

Jump in the puddles, really big splash
Childhood wonder, all day bash
Laugh out loud, as it's pouring down
I'm young again, on a merry-go-round

Soaking wet clothes, I'm such a mess
I really don't care, I must confess
Skipped work this morning, to be right here
As soon as I heard, skies wouldn't be clear

We grow up too fast, and we lose our awe
For the miracles in nature, Heaven's spa
I let my son skip school, he's making "A's"
To celebrate youth, make memorable days

So I'll pass on the umbrella, see my boy smile
Won't worry about work, or focus on style
Yeah.. just for today, I'll be a kid again
My son will never forget, what a day it's been!

My Wishes are Simple

My Wishes are Simple

My wishes are simple,
my desires few,

to gaze upon an ocean,
and marvel at a solitary drop of dew.

My wishes are simple,
my dreams not too grand,

to feel the waves teasing my tired feet,
with no footprints left in the cool, wet sand.

My wishes are simple,
my thoughts serenely gentle, calm,

my heart resting beneath a swaying palm,

healing my being, caressed by nature's soothing balm.

Rain Against My Face


All I've felt was rain against my face
No rhyme or reason, just a season laced with pain
Blinded, then, by a watershed of years, 
Designed to be forgotten, resigned through all my tears.......... 

Yet through a blur I see a rainbow in the sky
One word from you is like my stairway to the stars
Assured, I've found you, and the shelter of your arms
Tomorrow's season will have a sun again




The sun may disappear,...  forever warm within your arms,... 
                                          oh, yes...there you are....                                   
It doesn't matter, now, having rain against my face 
You've chased away the cold, and kept me closer, just in case...

                    You've wiped away my tears, with falling stars.......

The fishing weather of love

O yes, that is fine day
For fishing in mountain river
When weather is bad, 
And raining from early gray dawn. 
When world look so pity and doleful
Maybe for artists and poets
But so nice for big and hefty fishes.
They are swimming out 
from deep and cold bottoms and hidden caves 
to surface 
collecting on shallows, 
sometimes one by one
splashing and jumping out watercourse
close to edge 
with clear joys and playing ecstasy 
as if that silver living marvel 
suddenly felt and predicted
the next Great Flood, 
or time of Paradise
when all creatures
will coexisted friendly, peacefully and intermixed
Lullabying with one unimaginable divine future. 

So its seems that fishes
have tryed set on the benches and wings 
of  some awesome waterwheel,
more grandeur than London’s or Singaporean’s Eyes, 
appearing airily
for the vision of greatest waterfall
between joining Heaven and Earth, 
Seas and Skys
in rainy day.

The skillful fishermen 
Have good sense and flyer 
For such days and luckiest instant. 
They early wake up and gone to river
And capture lot of precious fishes, 
Plying so naively for own hopes, dreams and ruptures.

Alas, for fishes 
But good for intrinsic and great love 
That also has such marvelous days
When you captured your reward, 
If you early wake up and prepare himself
for catching precious golden 
Swimming up from deep and waste waters.

In The Rain

Written June 6, 2013

The preacher read the gospel
And we sank into our tears
Tearing down the curtain
We've been behind for all these years

A baby leaves its mother
An angel drops its wings
Leave me bound against the wall
Dangling by a string

Sitting by the window
Hoping she'll remember me
Sitting by the window
Contemplating memories

Resolve your inhibitions
And you'll find me in the garden
Where the flowers drink champagne
And God is in the rain

In Bloom

Written July 29, 2013

The wind blows the rainbows down
Turns your frown upside down
Then spins it back around

The sun hides the moon
Underneath its coat in bloom
The flowers came late this June

The rain in a teardrop
Falls like dew from a leaf
When she looks at me

See that look upon her face
Used to take her to the stars
Now she's headed back from Mars

Now that Venus loves her more
Wouldn't throw her to the floor
Like before

A World of Color

Skittles come in many colors
The windows are covered with shudders
Children run to the door when they hear their mothers
One is indigent one is opulent but they’re still brothers

The rain falls on all
It does not discriminate
It does not procrastinate
Could it be a rain date?

The sun does not have an obligation to shine
On you are me
It shines when it shines
Simply because it is free

Yes this may sound good in theory and rhyme
But a skittles world 
Could be yours and mine

The Rain

Do you want stars or do you want rain clouds?
Sway and if the music stops,
Answer before the next tune,
I will hear your heart’s desire
Star lights or raindrops?
Let me hold your waist and you hold my hand,
Dancing from star to star,
Night eyes watching us
Every pace we made,
forever near and never afar…
This is the first time or this happened before?
Sitting on the flight of the stair,
Leaning on the each other
Like cards building a castle,
When the rain washed the despair?
Sliding tears of sadness or sliding tears of joy?
Both for me are just the same,
When you are sad and lonely
You search my arms to hide,
Then you give to joy my name.

First Day of Spring

Written October 26, 2013

Love cries out from a songbird
On the first day of spring
And all the flowers bloom in the rain
And sunshine reigns
Over every boy and every girl
In this town that's driving me insane

On the first day of spring
The beginning of the end
Blue skies pulling me in
Along with all my friends
Rain shields the sun again

Alone in my room
I rescind
To the deepest depths of my soul
To sew back shut a hole
That will make me whole

I'm melting to the permafrost
How I feel so lost
In the world I used to call my own
Now I feel so alone
Without a house to call my home

my rain fairy

My rain fairy came riding on a dark cloud,
White hot flash in tow, rollin thunder clapping loud,
My rain fairy brought blinding rain down every dale,
My rain fairy brought a force 10 gale,
My rain fairy brought a lot of love,
She`s got an iron fist in a velvet glove,
I saw Drops of rain catching the suns glow, 
The day my rain fairy came riding rainbow.
My rain fairy makes me take a bow, 
Makes my future happen now,
My rain fairy won’t let me sail,
My rain fairy brought a bushel of hail,
The rain fairy touches my life in every way,
Making it worthwhile more than words can say,
My rain fairy walks faster than I can run,
I gotta meet her before she hides behind the sun,
I said to her one day,
How I long to be with you my dear, cant you feel my pain,
Can’t you be with me and douse it with your rain, 
But then,
My rain fairy brought a lot of love,
She`s got an iron fist in a velvet glove,
Now she’s gone and I don’t know why, she’s left me here staring at the sky, thinking of the day,
My rain fairy came riding on a dark cloud,
White hot flash in tow, Rollin thunder clapping loud

My Travels

My travels start 
Right here 
Deep in my mind
My travels take me just where
I please I don't have 
To leave my warm room

My travels start 
Sixteen sun
Beating down
Sinatra's crooning Jobim
And I'm just dreaming of my
Great romance to come

I don't need a little ticket
Tells me I can take the train
I don't even to risk it 
There's no blistering sun 
Or driving rain
And it's here that I remain

My travels end 
With a sweet 
And peaceful time
I've found such sense deep within
No more will I feel 
The need to go travelling again.

I Cant Fight Anymore

I can’t fight anymore…
Doesn’t make any sense to carry on this way, with hurtful things being said.  I’m thinking I’m right and your thinking the same, pointing fingers who’s the blame? Who should feel ashamed?  We look into each other’s eyes with lack of understanding.  Emotional demanding it’s a strain to our hearts and our thoughts are not focused.  Clouds grew over head with this hurtful situation.  Rain hits us on the head to smother our tears. When it rain it pours.

Pain so hard to hide sometimes.  Two hearts can’t come together, to improve, to grow. To make what we have better, to agree to disagree, to get pass what we are attempting to destroy.  My feelings are heavy and confused.  The love is there, these times it’s so hard to share when the pain is deep.  Jealously of others with their own goals in mind divide and conquer our world.  Whispers in the air as we stare at each other, eye to eye, pride for pride with bitter pain of lies told.  Stories unfold with vindictive acts in mind and in time love lost.

I can’t fight anymore…tired of the patches fixed to my heart and glue of broken pieces that has scared over time.  Tattooed Bible verses as a reminder. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 doesn’t talk about hate jealously or vindictive hateful ways…the greatest of all time LOVE.
So how do we compare with the truth of the Word?  This isn’t living my heart was built to forgive, to and for love.  

I just can’t…
I can’t fight anymore the pain won’t let me.  I’ll rather just walk away saving the fight for true love that deserves to be fought for.

Learn To Say Goodbye

The sidewalk crumbles beneath the weight of digging hands
Hands that are trying to find a meaning in something that has no such
And in the mist we can only see what we want to see because we are only ourselves
If only things could be a certain way; the way that is always pictured
Sad to say that the picture is not framed, but withered and torn at the corners
And sometimes, it’s only best to say goodbye and throw it away

Although it is not wanted, it will always be because life is disordered and hypocritical
No one helps with the fight, but only the distress and rage
It only takes so much to look inside and find what you have forgotten about
All one need’s is the courage and power
Not time
Not desperation
Not reason
Can you hear it? If only life were as simple as the sound of rain
No worries
No fear
No loneliness
Can you hear it?
Listen to the rain
To life

But the rain always brings out the worms, when the rain is gone
They shrivel up and dry out
Maybe they can’t find their way back to the dirt
Or perhaps they would like to end it too
And the wind sweeps me off my feet, just the way you wish you could do
But you sweep nothing but the dirt off the floor
In the end we were still alone
Still left to cry unheard by anyone
We were still left
Still alone
Sometimes you have to understand why others say goodbye

No one shows up to the movie of our lives
Only because the marquee misspelled our names
Our faces go unnoticed, unfamiliar
Even to the mirror
Yet we still play the film
Where I want to be the damsel in distress
And you the hero, with the happy ending
But we have to remember…it is only fiction
My dear, prepare to sink
So don’t hold your breath for long
Because we’ve been going down all this time
Don’t look so surprised
It was only to be expected that this time would come
Sweetheart, it’s time for me to go
This is a good time for you to learn how to say goodbye
And keep it in mind

Escape These Walls

You Build These Walls To Make a Home
For Yous Both To Live In
And The Day She Left She Dug a Hole..
How You Wished You Never Let Her.
Now You Stand In the Rain Because You finally Realise...

...She Was Your Shelter!

And All You Can Stand To think About
Is the Last Day...

..That You Felt her

But I'll Be Here For You
Because The Day I Built My Walls...

....He Left Me Too..

Months Pass On And You Wake To The Sun
And Oh God How You Wished You Felt It,
And Though The Rain Has Gone
You Still See The Hole She Left Up On Your Ceiling..

But I'll Be Here For You!
Because The Day I Built My Walls...


 He Left Me Too

Green is the colors all around The sun covered underneath all the clouds Where did you go today? Thunder shaking the skies with a certainty The rain will come down Ground wet from the cold drops coming from above The winds fierce, blowing as if it were kept mute finally being able to be heard What a beautiful creation A picture, a portrait, a canvas Painted with excellence by its artist Each detail accentuated The trees swerve back and forth not falling of course Foundations made strong Rain comes down harder Washing away yesterdays harshness Refreshing the earth Renewing the land Time for new growth to appear My happiest days are the rainy days

and I will come

…and I will come.
When the first snow falls down/ 
when the fall gives its rights/ 
to the winter/
you know I will come/
for good or for bad/
I’ll board the train/
Passing by / stations/ and countries/
I promised/ and I remember/
You said “there’s no fortuitous meetings/

…and I will come.
When the first snow falls down/
When you’ll lose the trace/
When my firmest snickers/ wipe out/
I will/ I will come…
Unexpectedly/ knowing solely the door/
Just the road / for sure/
Before/ take you I’ll ask/
“are you ready to go?” / 
You are ready/ I know/
All the noise doesn’t matter/
I don’t haste/ will be later/

…I will come.
When it finally turns out/
That November is overthrown by December/
When the first snow falls down/
Will be clear/ that nobody is remembered/ 

And I will come…
Somewhere in chest/ between ribs/
You slashed me/ with thoughts/ 
I can feel it with lips/ crawling under my cloths/
Our world is alive/ our life/ we’re alike/
And I….

I will come.
When the first snow falls down/
When the death is changed into fate/
When the winter gives up/ 
To wait/ for spring/
to stay with shining sun/
I will come.

Jill Scott

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

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