By Any Other Name

If love could have a color, I suppose
it wouldn’t be just any common shade.
I’d name it for the colors of the rose.
In heaven’s hues this flower is arrayed!

From chaste love’s hush of pink to heady rush
that’s shown by cardinal or crimson red,
the rose reveals the grades of ardor’s blush
unto the time it’s thought that passion’s fled.

But in the tint of amaranth, the fire
endures; in purple deep it can transcend,
while yellow blooms in bliss that does not tire,
and white’s fidelity will have no end.

Though black the bud, a red will grow thereof.
By any other name, the rose is love.


The rose is definitely my favorite flower!

One - The Number of My Name

“One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do”(?) - Three Dog Night


One - The Number of My Name

A melody I knew so long ago
comes echoing its lyrics through my mind.
It’s telling me through modern radio  -
how hard aloneness is and how unkind!

Reflecting on its words, I have to say,
I rather like the number one - I do!
I spend a large part of my life each day
alone! For me, this time has had great value.

No sadness do I feel to be alone.
Around the world, thanks to technology,
are friends I chat with. When I’m on my own,
I do fun things like writing poetry!

Determined and creative, I get things done
because the number of my name is One!


*Number 1 is just ONE of my three main numbers. If you want to know YOUR three numbers, including the number of your name, please see the links in my notes!

Sweet Pleasure

Sweet wreath from the sky
Too soon did our paths part
How I often wondered why
Ever were you near my heart

Your scent is ever calming
But your flowers excite my core
Passing these days longing
Wanting, desiring you even more

Your beauty now shines bright
In a once cold darkening place
Giving a familiar warming light
To this dull disappearing space

Your reappearance captures heart and mind
Now will we go forward or remain left behind

I'M a DEFENDER in the NAME of LOVE




I'M a DEFENDER in the NAME of LOVE Forlorn flavored winds speech of my love strokes the welcoming distance of eastern dawn where the somber colored night has withdrawn and pearls of hope; glitter clear like yolks, my fevered heart is bursting as I spoke seeing immaculate hues I foregone-- unto blossoms swelling red I hold on, while I await to resign slow my yoke. Why are we torn when just lips start to kiss and two sundered paths light one perfect bond? In changeless clamor, will we surrender? The purpose singing hard to gain, --- and missed. To troubled waves, no desolate respond, I'll be forever here, your defender. ________________________________________________ *** abba abba cde cde rhymes 6:10 pm, October 27, 2015

Happy Anniversary!

The anniversary of your treason
Disturbs the air—again! Like every year
Floating, whispering, the one real reason
You left me; the name never leaves my ear.
“Him!” a name I can’t even speak, wouldn’t dare.
For it would cause chaos and confusion  
Too daunting, distances too far to bear, 
Can’t even comprehend that illusion.
You left me here to sit—sick! And the thought
Of you and him in that beautiful embrace…
It’s a damn shame what you did! I OUGHTA!!!!!
Just, calm down—please! Dear Lord, please give me grace.
	The love you gave—your perfect portrayal,
	The love you took—your perfect betrayal.

A Sonnet In Your Name

A poem for your sake is nothing of praise
I bid to express what is felt at ease
For this;my only medium out of ways
For speaking fades but writng never cease
Thou art Queen of which city? Or from what home?
For beauty knows your name,ugliness hates
Can't tell your beauty,tell are you from Rome?
For my soul desires you,be mine oh sweet!
Can i compare thee to sun by daylight?
Or can i replicate you to a star?
Oh pulchritude i'll love to hold you tight
Eternity too short,our closeness far
For i want something closer than closeness
I desire you dearly!Oh loveliness.

No Name

You, the love of my heart, beauty is exactly what you define –
You are the rose of the valleys that possesses a scent so divine;
And your eyes so tender, far more like the moon glistering bright,
So is your love unto me, not half so comparable at day or at night.
Your lips, O my darling, as the stars across the clouds, beautiful 
Than the lips of those whose hobbies are to tell lies so awful –
And your smile is kind, as though all joys were vested in you;
And your touch is sweet, when I lie in your arms fearing dew. 
And your voice is liquid, could hardly breathe when I heard you sing,
And your kiss, and O, the velvet of your skin! what a gentle thing –
Like the softest sand of the deeper sea, stimulates shipment of sentiments,
With a plethora of love, and dignity I must say ‘My poem, –this is how it ends!’
But beshrew me, I never wish to lo and behold my soul dissever from yours,
And awake at midnight, and say: ‘The love is over and gone, or perhaps even worse!’

Generation XXX

Generation XXX
(Another Name for Gen Y(My Generation)

Beer goggles and Whiskey Rivers,
Pain numbing remedies that exude depression,
Marijuana oxygen and pain killer shivers,
Innocent faces with devilish expression,
Blood red eyes with cocaine explanations,
White lies, cooked up in haste, 
For the aforementioned, sell your feelings for a taste!

Young lady, young lady, impossible to find,
What has become of “Daddy’s Little Girl?”
Grew up as billboard, all body and no mind,
Succumbed to degradation just to fit in this world,
Princess? No More!
With bitter wounds and sans support,
Responds to “bxxch” labeled as “whore”
Sex for poison and sex for sport!

Young man, young man, could you bear to walk alone?
With choreographed legs and clay molded spine?
Quoting the majority, speaking with your friends’ tone,
Holding onto shirttails while blindly disregarding lines,
Unprotected sex just to help you feel alive,
Forced to buy diapers with the pennies you have earned,
From one into intoxicated night you did not want to be deprived,
Came a baby by a girl whose name you had to learn!

Young lady, Young man, both working like a slave,
To provide for a family that neither wished to know,
They scream as their dreams get sealed within a grave,
Essential sacrifices because the baby has to grow,
A self-destructive generation, corrupted and vexed,
Generation Y, is Generation XXX

Pain like a name

Like a name we all bare
A constant friend our hearts regret
He is a giant we seldom win, unfair,
A grief producing machine, each man gets

A friend making everyday things
Our craving miracles, and each peculiar name
Our life's lessons, that kings
travel afar to obliterate these silent shame

But man must not learn the hard way
Nor should joy be a seldom victory of pain
Or all essence he throws away
Then order lost it's again

If the rich do cry, and the poor 
Still survives, this world man must endure

Forget me, you, where upon your name shall shine,

Forget me, you; where upon your name shall shine,
Where, therein your heart shall not ever repent,
For by then, I will be gone without a sign
And our love with its flowers shall far be sent,
And thus my part, a lover, done and proven,
For this ain't my love that don't care your future,
But the truth that I will burn in an oven,
Tolerating my broken heart in suture,
Escorting pain along with me to the sea,
To the depths where your eyes and heart shall not reach,
If once you see my son, call him for a tea,
For I shall sing him our love and its songs each,
For now this is all I say when you marry,
That my distance is my love that I carry.

Count thy Blessings

Count thy Blessings

Count thy blessings, name them one by one
Compose thyself as pythons do on their preys
Ignite thy spirit to the rising sun
Rejoice with thy hands for points of thy being.

Compose thy songs with a theme of pure praise
Shout a Holy name thee deemed worthwhile
Wine and dine in the hollow of thy soul-
A resourceful asset for impulses,

For pints of freedom worth warm worthy toast
And radiant of clustered wings like birds.
If by chance thee spot ways to noble course
Count it to thy pride by abstracting lines.

Behold how cute to have survived the game
Count thy blessings aloud one by one.

SPILLINGWILLIE: Two heads indeed better than one

I flipped through the pages of my brain
Hoping the words would spill out from the notes.
Although I didn’t know the letters to play
But once it pops up, I would surely know.

Ideas started dropping in dribs and drabs
But none could wet the ground of my desire.
Its sound I should know with a few playbacks.
 All I heard shocked me, till I was tired

So I sought an extra head which I found
Full and small hence so light for my neck
Ideas now flowed ceaselessly as we ploughed
We came so close but could not get there yet

Finally out the blue now appeared
Spillingwillie, the name my blog now bears


A poem dedicated to my friend Onuh Dorcas without whom the name wouldn’t exist.. Hope you love it

Fancy's Name

Beneath a canopy, Pink laid her head on cushions satin soft adorned with lace, envisioning the prince she'd one day wed, the worship in his eyes as face to face, they'd make their vows; he'd whisk his bride away. . . As Pink lay dreaming, Purple brought her quill (with musings and with words she likes to play), and sat all night concocting scenes until the details of Pink's wedding fantasy emerged as something more from Purple's view. Romance she'd styled into her poetry distinctive in its feminine soft hue. What loveliness from Pink and Purple came- A poem of Fancy. . . Lavender's her name! For the All Colors Are In (old/new) any poem on colors Poetry Contest of Skat *Lavender is my favorite color. A mix of pink
and purple, I think it's the prettiest of the colors!

names

the truth is in the rhyme
of sticks and stones and
things are said all the time
that bleed us 'cause we let 'em

the truth is, that the truth hurts
yet we suffer too, the lie
spoken words thoughtlessly blurted
mistold, mistaken, or misapplied

so what adage do we use to heal
pride bruised from hurtful taunt
good self-esteem and spirit reveal
a self-worth free from want 

bones to pick, and stones to toss
won't allow regard to get across

Understanding Poets

I could say the name of one.
I could say the name of two.
But in the name of being fair.
Singleling out simply won't do.

I can say this, that I've been graced.
When one's away, one takes their place.
I've come to have respect for both.
But this club don't require an oath.

I'm not too concerned with contest rules.
It's not that I think they're for fools.
But when restrictions bind what ties.
I have to think they're not so wise.

The bottom line for me is this.
If no one commented, I'd surely miss.


I've written this for the kindness of all poets. While a site like this should inspire one to elevate their craft. It's just very nice to have a place where we can share. Kind of like Norm when he walks into Cheers. Where everybody knows your name.

ABOUT ALLAH AND GOD

Poems about Allah
In The Name Of Allah
I seek Allah’s protection
Praise be to Allah
The lord of the world
The beneficent, the merciful.
The master of the Day of Judgment,
You do we worship and thine aid we seek,
Guide us to the straight path.
The path of those you have favored,
And not of those against whom you are wrathful,
Nor of those who have gone astray.
His relation with creatures
Many of his creatures are creative.

Known and unknown of varies
In different continent and undiscovered continent
Praise be to thee, thy Lord
Special of his creatures on earth
Man feeling healthy and happy all time 
Praise be to thee, thy Lord
Special creatures with special talents
Creating and inventing new things
Praise be to thee, thy Lord
Was saying in cradle
 I dear not worship thee and dear not,
I dear not satisfy thee and I also dear not
Bunch of lies at a stage. 
Praise be to thee, thy Lord.

Creator looked and warned
Special creatures then shivered,
Echo of shouting and screaming
Then forgiveness was given
Praise be to thee, thy Lord
Creature said, Marvelous, thy Lord is Perfect
And all praises and worship are due to him.

Praises
There is no god but He, the living,
The everlasting, slumber touches Him not, nor sleep.
To him belongs all that is in the heavens and on
The earth. Who is there to intercede with Him,
Save by his permission. He knows that before and after them,
And they comprehend nothing of His knowledge,

Save by such as he wishes.
His throne comprises the heavens and the earth.
The preserving of them oppresses Him not.
He is the Most High, the supreme (in glory)
Let there be no compulsion in religion:
Truth stands out clear from error:
Whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah has
Gasped the most trustworthy handhold, that
Never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.
Allah is the protector of those who have faith: 
From the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light.
Of those who reject faith the patrons are the evil ones:
From light they will lead them forth into depths of darkness. 

They will be companions of the fire to dwell therein (forever).
All praise is due to Him, who has bestowed upon me, 
Behold, my Sustainer hears indeed all prayer.
Your Duties to Him 
My passionate to him is to worship him
There is no partner or a competitor
I feel my life is to him
My life feels I should be to him, the able
Worship and gives him all he is due to:
And praises his name all the time
Mighty in all his names:
He the beneficent, pray

Gone Too Far

That’s not my elephant, officer, though she is pink.
She is right in front of your vehicle sir, I think.
Not too big, but not too small, her name is Ella.
I would say she likes to carry her pink umbrella.
I bet those second graders can see her just fine.
Yes, officer, I bet that they never drank any wine.
So to say, she is not there, will start some fights.
So remember that my faith is in the bill of rights.
She dances so fine around, around over the lot.
Upon tips of her toes, she cannot smoke pot.
However, she can eat spaghetti, with meatballs hot,
She loves to slurp, and swing the noodles in trot.
Don’t you see her now, over on top of that car?
Well, sir, you’re under arrest, you’ve gone too far.

A noise by any other name is just as loud

Today's so-called music is nothing more
Than repetitious, raucous rot performed
By untalented, unaccomplished bores.
Their cacophony is worthy of scorn.
Instead they are held in admiration
By tin ears insensitive to sound.
Instruments amplify modulation
Or it might be the other way around.
Nevertheless, its purpose is to drown
Out feigned singers who couldn’t hold a tune
In a shower lest risking being found
Out. The day will finally come, and soon
I hope when these hucksters who can annoy
Are replaced with music all can enjoy.

In The Name Of Love


In The Name Of Love


My words of soul I humbly offer you—
these sorted gems straight from my loving heart.
With power of emotion deep and true,
I hope to wake the feelings on your part
that leave your mind at peace and free to be,
or stir a somber conflict to be solved.
May all my messages through poetry
help strengthen, comfort you with hope evolved.

My poems, tender gifts of my deep thoughts,
their flow from heart to mind comes clearly through.
Each word expressed, well chosen, dearly sought,
is planned to bring a piece of me to you.

Like rounded polished gems lined up to see
Each word I offer you, heartfelt and free.

No name

Looking nowhere and feeling empty
My life was boring and monotonous
It's like the universe won't give me glee
It seemed that having joy was ambitious

And there was a light outshining dark days
Making me blind of my old and sad thought
It felt like I gone out of my old maze
This happiness which can never be bought

These things happened the day I saw your smile
Your smile was like a sun that never sets
It was like magic that brought me beguile
It gave me bliss that I considered depts

What you did was what I want to tell 
But I can't talk, my soul has turned to steel

Sarah Kendricks

Sarah a name that means a princess in noble birth,
Along with biblical experiences of religious worth,
Reading her work one can tell of her tenderness.
A real poetess that has such natural cleverness,
Here and now I dedicate this for her gentleness.

Kindness she has shared with all so generous.
Each word I write without ever meeting her.
Never speaking to her, I know many concur.
Dedicating a sonnet is more then she expects.
Reality is, this will never show what she reflects.
I saw her sonnet was waiting to be written true.
Carefully I read her words, to get honest clue.
Kindness, blessed imagination her poetry thru,
Sincerely, I hope she enjoys this poetry I do.

The Name You've Given me

It thrills my heart to hear endearing name
its sweetness burns my heart, sets it aflame
Your tenderness and love it does proclaim
the world is rosy red, never the same

I bloom with praise at tender loving word
For in my heart I know love is confirmed
intense my pleasure when this name is heard
in sweetness I indulge, nothing's deferred

So let this name your heart in love embrace
let all the love you feel show on your face
and from your lips free falling, let it trace
my body, soul, and mind with heaven's grace

This name you've given me is mine to keep
It sings to me in wakefulness or sleep

In His Name

When one speaks of the Lord
In his presence an Angel shall bow
For if the words are true and pure
The Angel must keep their vow

There are many who will blasphemy
Holy Father let them hear your name
So they may open their hearts to your words
And not bury their heads in shame

But for those who are obedient
In your name are hurt and hated
Lord, send them your Angels for comfort
And the mansions you have created

Oh Lord, in thy Name we open up our arms
As we pray, protect us from these earthly harms.

Laura Contest

Laura Contest

Latin for “Laurel” was a tall, strong tree,
Queens crowned with such honor and victory,
Poet Petrarch in love with the beauty,
Beloved Laura,  fourteenth  century.

So many years, nothing but love for her,
Laura was his soulmate, truth to be heard,
For he wrote her sonnets on notepaper, 
Longing to prove he was her heart keeper.

When someone asks what Laura really means,
Strong roots supporting my great Laurel tree,
Blossoming, blooming all colors of green,
Swaying in the breeze so sturdy and free.

Even though my middle name is Marie,
Queens crowned with my branches in victory.

Oh please complete me with your hands tonight,
As I see your smile shine under the moon,
Whisper in my ear our love is just right,

And everyday our love soars bright anew,
Our winds of love dances and sings with gust.

In the name of love

Although highly thought upon by all  men
yet its understanding still made unknown
creating mindset distinct and diverse
yet the heart of many has been intrigued
by such trivial obscure phenomenon
causing them to act wise or contrary
yet this phenomenon approves the act 
contradiction of any of it rules
needs no judicial body for judgement
needless to break the edge sepernt will bite
instead uphold its inherent nature
maintaining its floorless record always
always ensuring that everything
accomplished is done in the name of love.

Forget My Name

I felt the symptoms starting
There was nothing I could do
Other than up my dosage some
Instead of ingesting one, taking two

That didn’t seem to matter
I felt the rage beginning to mount
The irritating aura surrounding me
My control I must take into account

Raged and manically inhabited 
Trying feverishly to maintain control
I lost it as fast as I wished it
Anger completely solely on patrol

Crying isn’t going to help me
Nor are my silent pleas out of mouth
Severe repercussions of my actions
Regret and sorrow leading me south

As far south as my feet can take me
Escaping this cruel mental shame
Leading me to another side of darkness
A place where no one will remember my name
