Love Is Free


      a puppet dances

Existence

awkwardly I dance
because I have two left feet
hard to find partner

I watch you dancing
it seems you have two right feet
let us share some shoes

will you follow me
for if we move together
dance will have purpose

you move fluidly
my feet provide the structure 
made for each other

no limitations 
with artistry and purpose
we dance with the stars

life is not boring
we live within the rhythm 
music from heaven

God is our maestro
leading us to forever
in death we won't part

the moon to moon afterglow
a wave crush the mood

Stereotype motion
Two face under water

My Simple Valentine Story

The Voice



                                            emotion and tears

                                        the voice of a rising star

                                         time stops in its tracks

Terrorism knows no Geography

hate knows no limits
Boston or Beirut Bombings
innocent ones die

in Paris or Pakistan
atrocities unlabeled
innocent ones die

Baghdad or Berlin
Lives should have the same value
innocent ones die

innocent ones die
religion or politics~~~
extremism kills

Terrorism reigns
the world is no longer safe
innocent ones die

say a prayer for all
terror plays no favorites
innocent ones die

You Choose Amnesia

you choose amnesia
self inflicted malady
I am the healer

term of endearment
now given to another
you try to forget

my fragrance lingers
love fights for recognition
sweet awakening

Life's Greatest Anguish

                                       life's greatest anguish:
                                  passion felt yet unexpressed
                                        harrowing hunger


   love in confinement
   a required sacrifice
desire in f^l^a^m^e^s

                                                                        cravings and longings
                                                                    consume the tormented heart
                                               there 
                                                 is 
                                                no 
                                              respite
