Yesterday Love Was Such An Easy Game To Play


Yesterday, I went home for lunch, I never go home for lunch. When I got to our apartment  I don't know why but I didn't reach for my key.  Francine was at work and I always leave last in the morning.  I was sure I had locked the door but I didn't reach for my key. I reached for the door knob and turned. The door was open.  I don't know how I knew. The moment I entered I knew.  I froze. I could feel it, smell it, hell I could taste it. I started walking but my muscles wouldn't move,  my lungs were grasping for air  for some oxygen  some sweet, sweet oxygen but I could barely breathe. “Leave!” I told myself but I kept walking. Not really walking,  it was like moving through mud,  like a slow motion scene in a movie.  But this wasn't a movie.  This was my life and I could feel it slipping away  from my grasp. I heard noises! Francine.  I had heard those noises a hundred times before,  they were the sounds of an Angel  but this was no heaven  this was my own private nightmare. The moans traveled through the muck in the air  amplified like the hiss from a distorted speaker.  It mocked me over and over again. Climbing a mountain might have been easier  but I finally reached the bedroom, and there they were, and there she was. I knew, I knew the moment I entered the apartment.  Why hadn't I just turned back?  I could barely see, my eyes were blurry,  covered in layers of my own tears. I could see her  I knew I had never seen him before. They were naked and in our bed.  Naked in OUR BED! How do you that? How do you cross the line to that extreme? You'd think the green eyed monster  would control my actions from here on in.  I did see green! I was insanely jealous but I didn't want to end up the morning headline in the newspaper. That monster jealousy was by my side but I took charge.  I'd have to keep him at bay, at least for now. You'd think I would be mad, I wasn't. You'd think I'd curse and call her whore. I didn't! Being cut open alive must be lest painful than this.   This hacked away at my spirit,  tore away at my self worth. I felt like a pile of worthless shreds. I spoke I mean my lips moved and words came out... I think.  I think I said,  I'm not sure it all happened so fast, she never spoke. I could see the shame on her face  she didn't need to speak,  but, but I think I said 'Sorry... I said Sorry and I left. I wandered for what seemed hours,  it was minutes.  It wasn't like I was meandering to a different drummer;  there just wasn't any music anymore. I was moving to the rhythm of the beating of my own heart.  Like a broken record it was skipping, like a broken record it played  in a loop of repetitive monotony. I suffered in my circled steps  until I couldn't stand it any more. I found just enough strength  to return to the apartment. I knew she was gone  I already felt the emptiness in my whole. We'd never see each other again. We had been so much. She was a big part of my life. She was the love of my life. I would never love anyone like that again. So much of her was me. I thought she was my soul mate. We let go of all of it. There is a feeling of betrayal. A feeling of disgust. A jealousy that takes over. I'd never look at her the same again. Everything she ever did from that day on would always make me suspicious. Jealousy would rule me. Jealousy should never rule anyone. If you can't trust the people in your life, friend or lover, you need to remove that person from your life. You have to remove that person out of your life. Trust, is the only gift we can offer. Friend, lover or stranger! People can trust me. My word is my bond. I let her go,  I really didn't have a choice I would never be the same again. She was gone. She had left a note. It said Sorry! Sorry! We both were. Maurice Yvonne 11~30~2014 Sponsor: Verlena S. Walker Contest Name: The Green-Eyed Monster

It Is Not Easy - Try It Yourself


              Not easy to speak or write a foreign language
              How many languages do you speak or write
              There are many that comes to your country
              who do not know the language ..... it is difficult
              I spoke with a "foreigner" today .... nice guy
              He worked on the garbage car
              A very well paid job in Norway
              The box of garbage must be wheeled down to the port
              I'd forget ... ran after the car with my box
              Smiling and cheerful, he said:
           * Norwegian: "Do glemte sitte ut do " ?
                                              -  ((Do you forget to put the box out ?))
           * Translated: "You forgot to sit on the toilet " (?)

You're Easy to be Proud of

You have grown to be such a man
yet, I cannot help but see the boy in you
you are my Son, who wears many uniforms
as your father, I cannot help but be Proud,

I see you march in the Orange and Black
your new horn, the one you have polished to a glow
every step you take, Orchestrated to perfection
with every note played, My pride, Crescendo 

Then, you have worked hard, and Matured
a letter arrives, Office of the Governor, the Man himself
an invitation, Ambassadorship, a Musical one
Travel Europe, Summer next, Seven Countries

A Father, busting with pride, Why? I'll tell you!

        Because, " Your Easy to be Proud of"

Yet as proud as I am, there is this other Uniform
the one you wear with Honor, Duty, Love of Country
the one with Medals, Braids and Epaulets 
the one with a special pin, a hometown pin

Five Stars Golden, enveloped by Black and Orange
Tenne' a Chevron, a Chief, a Ring of Life
of the First Argent, A Scroll in Black
an inscription, " Classis Adhaereo Adstringo"

A Motto, In Latin, ascribed by the Navy
for Five hometown boys Lost in War
of how they lived and died " We Stick Together"
Albert,Francis,George,Joseph and Madison Sullivan

In that Uniform, I see the Man, not the boy
I cannot help but be caught, in solemn thought
This Man, with Anapolis in sight and mind
on this, the Eve of the 9/11 tragedy and War

That solemn thought reverts to Sacrifice
the Sullivan's sacrificed,9/11 over 3000 sacrificed
all did so,willingly or not, for Country, for God
I think you have foreseen Your Destiny, Your own

Josh, whatever Uniform you decide to wear,
whatever path, you may choose to walk
I'll always Love you, Be there for and with you
and be So Very Proud of You, Why? Because!

             You're Easy to be Proud of! 


             With all my Love.....Dad

It Ain't Easy Being Green

Kermit is a canary,
He's such a pretty boy
And when he starts to sing,
He sings with so much joy.

Kermit is a canary,
The prettiest I've ever seen
And with his strange coloured plumage
It ain't easy being green.

The other canaries stare at him
Because he is unique.
They think because he's green
He's some kind of a freak.

But Kermit is a pretty bird
Who has a pretty voice
And as for his green colour
He really had no choice.

The yellow and the orange coloured birds,
They think they are the best
But little "Kermit the Green"
Just doesn't look like the rest.

But he can sing a pretty song,
The sweetest ever heard.
It just ain't easy being green
Especially if you're a bird.

Rest Easy my Friend

Rest my friend truly you deserve some peace 
Life sometimes hard but you always did maintain 
Your friends carry a memory of  you that  won't cease

A peculiar fellow quickly your anger could increase
How adamantly you would continue  to explain
Rest my friend you deserve to get some peace

Your passion for life could never decrease
Even after suffering so much agony and pain 
Your friends carry a memory ofyou  that won't cease 

From every lecture I could take away a piece 
Always knowing there was something to gain
Rest my friend trulyyou deserve some peace

I continue on now still searching for my crease
We have a friendship that death cannot contain
Yes I'll carry a memory of you that won't cease

Truly our friendship never faltered in the least 
Even now I can still hear you complain and complain
Rest now my friend truly you deserve some peace 
Your friends carry a memory of you that won't cease

NOT AN EASY ROUTE

Violence and demonstration is 
Not an easy route to break frustration, rejection
Bounce back on hardship and dismantle disappointment.
It's not an easy route to betray suffering and sorrow   
Not an easy route to freedom and liberty,
Many would die, humiliated and battered like an oaf
There is never an easy route to success.
Procrastination is foolish and stupid in its little world
Not an easy route to succeed.
Break through the broken thought and spirit
Swirl pass fear and grab the hurdles
With a club in your fist tight
Then hurl it at wisdom and understanding.
There you make success your friend 
Killing and rituals is not an easy route to fame,
Hard work and commitment silently bring the answer 
Which shower a tiny and blissful rain on 
Your efforts and waters your Destiny to effect.
Silent mouth is not an easy route to get to the mad house,
Not an easy route to get published in the mad house
Build up your failures and refuse to give up 
Even in the face of rejection and critics
A closed mouth is a closed destiny.

How Easy Are Earth Girls

I’m Andrea, a visitor to earth,
and I'm a Virgo; astrologically,
stability has ruled me since my birth.
A gentle, mellow earth girl here you see.

I’m tolerant and don’t know how to scold;
relaxed among my students that I teach;
unruffled (some might even find me cold),
and though I speak my mind, I do not preach.

I’m also fairly easy on the eyes;
good-natured, I adjust to any type.
so I had dated lots of different guys,
and for each one I seldom had a gripe.

I’m sure they’d tell you, though I’m fun and breezy,
in one regard this earth girl was not “easy!”

Not Easy Being Green

He has sung the song often before
'bout a color he really abhors,
but Kermit's been seen
all smilin' in green
on St. Pat's when he walks out the door.

It Ain't Easy Being Stupid

It Ain't Easy Being Stupid 



 The sweet reggae music 
And the oldies Goldie’s Outbids the 
Noise in the night 

Tall dark and handsome, 
I saw him standing there, 
A well shave face viper 

His artistic designs 
From ear to cheek 
Zigzags lines that 
Shape his round face 
The shine on his face clashes 
With the street light

To have such a deep admiration 
From a sex stave woman 
I was in love the six packer 
the bearded caribbean viper 

Under the street light; they he stand tall 
I sigh! and took another sip of beer 
as memory recalls I about to have an affair? 
I whisper softly " Lord “Please don't failed me now

That was the night 
When I surrender my heart, my secrets

  for moment of bliss that fulfills only 
a temporary curiosity of most women

My self-confidence forfeit 
The enemy captured my heart 

Self-confidence is to do 
What you are afraid to do. 
I have done it all 

I surrender everything to a tall six packers
 the beard  caribbean viper 

A moment of sanity 
From another human being to another 
It Ain't Easy Being Stupid

ITS NOT EASY BEING ME

IT’S NOT EASY BEING ME
I’M THREE
I JUST HAD TO EXPLAIN
TO MY SINGLE MOTHER MARY
WHY I DIDN’T WANT TO CHANGE 
OUT OF MY PINK PJs 
JUST NOW
IT’S A MATTER OF SELF EXPRESSION
IN A POST MODERN SOCIETY
AND THE IMPORTANCE OF PINK 
IN MY LIFE 
AT THIS TIME
IT’S KIND OF A FASHION STATEMENT 
ALL THE GUYS WEAR THEM 
HER GENERATION JUST DOESN’T 
UNDERSTAND US

BUT I DID THANK HER
FOR THINKING 
ABOUT ME

I HAVE TRIED MY BEST TO BE SENSITIVE 
TO HER FEELINGS
I ASKED MYSELF 
WHAT WOULD DR. FREUD DO
IN MY POSITION 
I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE HER WITH 
ANY PERMANENT SCARS IN HER SUBCONSCIOUS 

DID I MENTION 
THAT 
SHE’S ONLY SIXTEEN AND A TEENAGE QUEEN
THAT SHE HAS HEART TATTOO ABOVE THE CRACK IN HER ASS WITH THE NAME OF SOME GUY JOHN
INSCRIBED IN IT 
THAT JOHN’S GONE  
THAT WE ARE ON WELFARE AND
THAT I THINK SHES GOING THROUGH 
SOME MAJOR CHANGES IN HER LIFE 

OR 
THAT I THINK SHE’S JUST PERFECT AND 
THAT I WANT TO GROW UP AND 
BE JUST LIKE HER

An Easy Man

She put her hand upon my leg and I didn’t brush it off,
then she held me in that special place, where the doctor says to cough.
The next thing that I knew, our clothes were on the floor
and before that night was finally through, I could stand no more.

She didn’t return any of my calls, after that first date.
Maybe I shouldn’t give in so fast – perhaps, I should hesitate.
I think that I’ve been used again to scratch a young girl’s itch;
This reputation of being an easy man is something I must ditch.

Now, some men might be envious and can’t believe my luck;
Some will say, “Why are you complaining – in a dry spell we are stuck”
But these girls, they are just using me, to gain experience;
I’m the one who started my prowess rumor and haven’t had any time off since.

THREE EASY PIECES

THREE EASY PIECES

three easy pieces
the kind of tunes children like
are so out of place
in this electronic world
grandma moses comes to mind

the colors    simple
country places brought to life
you identify
alive again as a child
love    comfort    security

in this complex world
simple things are still the best
three easy pieces
love    comfort    security
old grandma knew how to live

With Peaceful Easy Strokes

I mix the Grey 
of ash and soot 
into shade, ground 
from between the leaves
of midnight and dawn


as the texture of you
begins the pale
to nothing  


as each lift of the brush,
and every dab erased you
from the canvas of my life,
I realize,
I am overpainting each
and every particle 
of you


I meditate on the good
but with regret I forget, 
for in the remembering
burns a nothingness


I remix the colour
with a rainbows spray, 
and I fill the void 
where you once stood 


too long
I stood in the background 
of your Shadow painting 


I am a now
mistress of my own easel 
and my brush is reaching
out of the shadow
of you

It was not easy but it was worth it

Having to accept that there will never be us
Having to accept that you are a branch of another man
Learning to leave with the new picture of you
It was not easy but it really was worth it!!
Learning to dream dreams that do not have you
Swallowing a bitter ghastly taste of you not being mine
Having to smile and act as if everything is just fine
It was not easy but it was worth it!!
Having to quit the battle before it even started
Abandoning the dream of all years and move on 
Putting the blinkers on my face so I cannot see what’s going on!!
It was not easy but it was worth it!!

For what significance is it wishing for something that is not yours?
For how helpful is it chasing a phantom, something that is not there?
For love means considering the happiness of your associate
Your heart is at its happiness state and so I should accept it but
It was not easy but it was worth it, believe me you

Easy Come, Easy Go

I bought a lottery ticket
I told the cashier - "Just pick it,"
I was surprised when she said,
"If you win, we'll go to bed;"
now all my cash is gone - "Frick It!"

What An Easy Life We Lead



Remember the days before computers Seems like they've been around forever Life was simpler or that's how it seemed Methinks today's much simpler however Hard to recall the big hassle it was Making a simple deposit at the bank Had to get there before closing at three Banker's hours were short to be frank What about shopping at the grocery store Needed cash or you were poop outta luck Unless you saw a friend and asked for a loan And he forks over a couple of bucks Now you can order movie tickets online Is there anything more convenient than that No more standing in a long line in the cold Bundled up in a coat, scarf and a hat We can even file our tax returns online We don't even need to mail them anymore No, today is a very much simpler life We can now take daily naps and snore © Jack Ellison 2014

It Ain't Easy You Know

It really ain't easy you know
Keeping up with you talented poets
You guys are totally amazing
Your creative presentations show it

Feel like an rank amateur at times
When reviewing your wonderful stuff
Truly eloquent compositions
Keeping up with you guys is tough

You've either got it or you ain't
Can't fake it if your words don't sing 
Before long it'll be discovered
You lack that rare intangible thing

At times think I might have it
Then review your poetic submissions
Realize I'm still a rank amateur
And don't fit the word 'poet' definition

Guess I'll just keep bumbling along
With my silliness and nonsensical fun
As long as you guys keep cheering me on
Sure hope I don't fall on my bum!

No Easy Fix

Through this ever changing and fast paced life, one truth remains.
It is plain and simple, “….By their fruits you shall know them.”
Fast talk and promises come easy to a good salesman.   Even 
When you’re down to your last dime, he’ll have no qualms
About taking that too….if you let him…
  …your choice
However, truth be told, there is no easy fix to the problems we have.
We have no supernatural powers to see the future, but there
Is a God who always wants the best for His children.
He’s even promised that if we would ask forgiveness for our sins
Turn away from them, He would hear our prayers and answer...
Again...your choice

FOR IT IS NEVER EASY BUT

For it is never easy as a parent 
to let go of your child's hand 
the first day of Pre-K
For it is never easy for a 
mother to accept her daughter 
moving to another state
For it is never easy for a father 
to see his daughter 
transitioning into a young lady
For it is never easy for a 
mother to see her daughter go 
through labor
For it is never easy for a father 
to see his daughter being loved 
by another man
For it is never easy for a 
mother to see her son being 
loved by another woman
For it is never easy for a parent 
too see their child associating 
with the wrong crowd
For it is never easy for a parent 
too see their child ruining their 
life by using drugs

BUT

As parent(s) and/or  guardians 
if we pray and believe all will 
work out if we just trust in our 
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ 
because HE is the one that has 
given these children to us 
eventually all will BUT YOU 
MUST BELIEVE no mater what 
the situation.

It's Never Easy Being Cheesy!

It's never easy being cheesy!
Have you ever felt or been told that you were sleezy?
There are some that feel it's hard to live their life.
Some of us find it depressing dealing with the heartache and strife.
I feel Al Green when he said that he was tired of being alone!
I think that it's time for me to be back on my own.
I have a man, or atleast I thought.
In the meantime, I'm smoking the cigarettes that he bought!!
As I say, "It's never easy being cheesy"!!!
