My Simple Valentine Story

dancing clumsily - shy blue cowboy eyes smiling. . . . he swept me away marriage fast foreknown - no proposal from his lips. . . . just lots of kisses my man of few words tells me, “I’ll always love you”. . . . few words are true words
For the The Story of Valentine Poetry Contest of Olajide Adelana

Say it now!!!

Give me my life back
Satan release your grip—now!
God’s love—can’t touch that!


Now believe it
Continue to live by it
Let it manifest!

A caring One

A caring one is more 
Than sweet fragrance,
Even when sweet fragrance ends,
The caring one remains...

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

Held You Through

       Your tears fell so slow..
    I couldn't catch all of them..
          So I just held you..

                                            I gave you my ear..
                                    It doesn't judge or cast words..
                                           Just listens and hears..

                                                                                    My body and soul..
                                                                               And a heart open for you..

Making My Heart Knock

In your eyes I see
the way you look back at me
it's what sets me free

The way you smile
it's one that lasts for awhile
I love your style

It's the way you talk
and watching the way you walk
that makes my heart knock

Maybe it's your jeans
or your handles that are lean
either way I scream

Could be that t-shirt
it could be the way you flirt
or thoughts of desert

The one I count on
in this life and life beyond
my wife is my bond

Tombstone - Like The Four Horsemen

they walked along
weathered, carrying their guns;
like the four horsemen…

down to the O.K.
guns blazing, bullets flying;
smoke clears, the strong stand…

Passing Regret

Dead winds blow through the 
Old oak parlor door at night
Silently she screams 

No one to hear her 
Stifled, but desperate cry 
She waits, hopes, and dreams

A sin, she's told to 
Want for anything more than
Rough stone, wood and brass 

Resolved, she watches 
The sun die, to rise again
Through the old stained glass

Trapped in unselfish 
And eternal devotion 
Both, the cage and key 

Lingering in what 
Well might or might not have been 
Dreams are hard to see

Vows uttered to God
With well meaning intention
The velvet-lined snare 

She, with rosary 
Held tight in her trembling hands
Buries all in prayer
