                                                      one piece of string

                                                      wrapped with wax

                                                      made all by hand

                                                      a beacon - of light

                                                     slender  and white

                                                     burning so brightly

                                                    in a window tonight

                                                    there in the stillness

                                                    whispering a prayer

                                                    into the midnight air

                                                    In a flickering  flame

                                                    spelling  your name 

                                                   until I find you again

                                                   there in the darkness

                                                  on a bloody battlefield

                                                  lying in the frozen rain

                                                  wounded crying in pain

                                                 and in a flickering flame

                                                 again I spell your name

                                                 A spark  of  recognition 

                                                 ignites your lonely eyes

                                                 as you reach out to me

                                                Your hope and your love

                                                your light and  your wife

                                               here to comfort you tonight

L O V E (***********\ /***********) \ \ / / \ V / \ / Love is the sweetest thing of all, If you disagree with me, just spin up your ball, It’s when the stars twinkle brightly in your eyes, As you taste your beau’s kisses under a romantic moonlight. V Love is the hardest thing to understand, The more you give it away, joy and pain come back as your rewards, But when hurt strikes back more, will you ever whine? Love endures all things-it’s the true essence that eases one’s mind. Love is conceived and rooted since before the beginning of our time, When this world was created, that love was the Greatest and Most Divine; The most priceless gift endowed in each and every creation’s heart, It conquers all things… leading to God, our ultimate goal in life. Love is an unconditional care and compassion towards mankind, It resembles to a maxim that goes, “ love is blind”; No matter how horrid a color you and others will see, Keep on loving in your heart eternally.

Broken Heart

                  broken heart 
           that I am, has beset 
    by blemishes though I'm not  
 ashamed; for my shattered 
pieces myself is to blame. 
here I breath waiting for the
 day of my renewal, then back
    to the role I play; painful
         past lurking still, but 
            I'm not afraid to take
                chances to love and
                    be whole once 
                        more and
                             be ready 
                                 to shed
                                      a tear
                                         of joy

1st thoughts about us

I picture this being more than a friendship even
though we just met
Your conversation is so strong and seductive with
plenty of intellect

It appears your very mature with the words that come out of your
To find someone like you is what I’ve dreamed

I know I don’t know you and we only talked this one time
But I like you
It’s beginning to be scary, crazy, but yet exciteful 
and delightful

Maybe one day you can send chills up my spine, better yet
make me smile
Wait; maybe you’ve done that from giving me you 
piece of mind

The way you talk and your words sound 
so sincere
And if I’m wrong say I’m wrong but I know you’ll always
be there

It’s a must that I know right now how you feel if there’s
Because one day I would like you to be my

When I’m with you love me and care 
Don’t hurt, play, laugh at my feelings or take
advantage of me

When I cry you’ll cry because you’ll feel my pain 
and anger
Don’t complicate things and not be there and act
like a total stranger

Be my friend, understand me, touch and tease 
Say the words I want to hear like everyday saying, 
the little things, these are the words that please me

Don’t rush and be my lover like we did in your dream
I’ve been broken by love and I need time to heal from being
treated like a score


The love I feel when someone makes me smile and
It’ll finally feel good to not sit up and cry not kiss 
everyone’s a$$

All I ask is for you to hold my heart honestly in
the palm of your hand 
Not asking for much only for you to be my friend and

That I am human and I make mistakes and it
That everything can’t be right all of the time because life
is a cold breeze by any means

So what I’m trying to say is that all I ask of my lover is for 
them to hurt
because if they understand how I feel or felt maybe 
the happiness for me will finally work

Daddys Little Princess

She is just a darling little girl,as precious as a lamb,
She rules our home in many ways that another can.
She's in and out,here and there throughout our busy day,
And many times I stop my work because she wants to play.
She often has a special hug, the sweetest baby kiss,
And when just she and I are there I rate this treasured bliss.
But when her Dad arrives at night, you'll find her in a whirl's
She hasnt time for Mother then,because she's Daddy girl
It's joy to see her laughing eyes,her baby smile,
Tis' then I know that all is well and life is worth the while,
So lovingly he'll pinch her nose or steal a curl
Just anything he does is right because she's Daddy's girl.
I often marvel at the charms that only Dad possess
Although I know within my heart she doesnt love me less.
We tuck her into bed at night, our one and only pearl
And cause I love her Daddy too,I am proud she is Daddy's girl.

Just A Word

                                INDIANA’S BEST KNOWN IMAGE                   JUST A WORD
AND                    YET SO POWERFUL, YES, JUST                                   A WORD
SHORT              AND TO THE POINT, BUT TO                       SOME           IT IS A
WARM              AND HEALING WORD, IT                       BRINGS HOPE         AND
PEACE               AND LIGHT UNTO OUR                      WORLD, IT CAN           BE
  SEEN               THE WORLD OVER, IT                  NEVER SEEMS TO             BE
LOST,                IT KNOWS THAT                     IT’S JUST A WORD                YET
THER                IS NO DENYING                  THAT IT IS VITAL                        TO
EVERY               LIFE ON EARTH,      I      AM CERTAIN IT                           WILL
PROVE               TO BE MORE          OF    A NECCESITY                            THAN 
EVEN                 THE VERY            AIR                                             THAT WE
                                                BREATHE,                            WITHOUT THIS
                                               WORD WE                       CAN’T REALLY BE    
I AM                CERTAIN OF          THAT, JUST A            WORD, BUT I
KNOW              THAT IT IS           A VITAL PART            OF HUMANITY,
THERE               WOULD          BE NOTHING OF              THE JOY         WE
KNOW                 TODAY         AND ONLY HURT             UPON            A COLD
EARTH, I               CAN          BUT IMAGINE THE                                EVIL IN
A WORLD,              A           HELL, WHERE THIS              WORD          DID NOT
EXIST, I CRY                      FOR THOSE WHO DO           LIVE IN          THIS
WORLD, I AM                   SURE THAT MANY DO             JUST THAT, AND
I PRAY THAT I               WILL NEVER FIND THAT             I INHABIT A
PLACE WHERE I           HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE                 OF THIS

I Give you My Heart

                         sweetheart                            sweetheart 
                    for you to ask me                  (                       )   )   
                 the reason I love you so        (                                    )
                is to ask a bird why it sings  (                                         )
            or if it could  fly without wings                                              )
          why does a rose bloom in spring                                             )
           why do those bells have to ring             I Need you here        )
           why do leaves cleave to a tree                 by my side          )
                why does honey need bees                                        )
                  there is really no mystery                                     )
                     it is  just  their  destiny                                  )
                      the same as you and I                             )
                             predestined to be                         )
                                   for I am only                   )
                                     half a heart               )
                                           without          )

Your Secret Smile

Give me " Your Secret Smile" the one that i forever see every once in awhile.
The secret smile that allows your eyes to tell its story, for it pours out reflective visions of your love for me...Glory.

Give me "Your Secret Smile" the one where everything is at end.
the pain, guilt, anything that makes you feel empty; unable to mend.
For Your Secret Smile" s one im for sure going to forever keep close to my heart.
Yet if it weren't for that smile; would this have been love from the very start?

Give me "Your Secret Smile" the one that can change the day.
Allowing one to feel safe and secure in every possible way.
touching me softly in places one can't reach.
for the power of "Your Secret Smile" has expressed the words from the unspoken speech.
Taken away from the mesmerization of "Your Secret smile" only seen and recognized by me.

Don't Walk on Me

                   Hey, you;
               yeah, I'm talk-
              ing to you there.
           Don't  Walk  On  Me!

    Don't be rude, and walk upon
  my person, sprawled here, in the 
 grass; give me space to be myself;
please walk around me as you pass.

 If, someday, you should find that 
  I am lying prone and feeling ill,
   be kind enough to bring a rose
    and sit quietly, with me, till

       I'm up on my feet, then 
        help me clear the way
         to find an easy path
          thru frenzied fray.

        Don't step on me as
       you pass by, but take 
      me by the hand. We'll 
     walk side by side in sun
      and as a team-together
         we both can stand.

Each morning as I open my eyes 
They are forced to be shadowed by bleak emotional ties 
When will the past stay where it belongs
An no longer torment  this beautiful day
When birds are singing......an leaves are falling......an hope is in the air 
Where dreams come true
And love isn't blue
Does love exist in this greedy world
It has passed my way
But has never taken hold
When will I learn that it isn't real....just a feeling I am told not something you can hold...Elusive to me.......

Ha ha


This morning the taste of mint and chocolate 
Upon my tongue 
My exposed nipples under my silky gown 

 you whisper words in my ear 
that I never heard before 
I sigh! with admiration as I tiptoe
 to reach for your kiss 

I put my arms around your neck 
You whispered softly
Make me hard with your eyes 
Be my dark surprise 

Ha! Ha! 
Why the laughter? 
Babe! it my way of saying yes! 
Oh! yes! oh yes 
and more

We open our homes

We open our hearts

We bring kindness

We bring knowledge 
We Pray to the Heavens for Peace

You will be asked to choose

The time will come

Fear will be used as the weapon of choice

Masked with a loyalty of Religion  

This day will come

Together Love can conquer all darkness

  Believe in Love 
  Believe in Peace
  Believe in Us.........

On this day, I want to say
Words that forever will stay
In your heart as well as mine
Words silky, smooth, tender and sweet as wine

You were a flower on a tower 
Plucked and firmly planted in my heart
Protected from life’s harsh weather
Lady, you are a treasure....
The source of joy beyond measure

Your rare beauty, my medicine
Your sweet smile, my cure 
Your gentle laughter, assures
Your firm love has made me sure
With you l am secure.....

Rip not my heart for it is yours
Yours I will not for it is mine
Together we 've been woven 
Tangled....with love’s silk and twine
No one in between, can draw a line

Your hurts are mine as well
As are your pains and gains
Sorrows and joys

Come along with me
To our own paradise
Away from love’s parasites
Those liars, cheats and thieves
Who rob others 
Of love’s joy and bliss

Time Waits For No One

As the clock turns and your ways remain the same
You don't stop and realize you have a good thing
Your eyes are closed can't see the end of the road
To late to turn back now your luck is gone
Such a shame how you played your silly games
Patience has run out now
I must move on
Tried and hoped that things would change and not remain the same
I won't keep holding on
The love is gone
Move on
It won't stop for me I've tried so hard with you
Why can't you see your ways have caught up with you
Such a shame how you play your silly games you should have known your time was running thin
Broken promises I'm not down for your childish ways
My future's on the line I have to make my moves
Got goals for the near future each second affects your life
 Can't hold on you're nonproductive
Take the steps improve your mind
I tried to help motive you
Outline the steps make it right
You failed to see the Big Picture
God Bless you
I'm out of your life

Red Sky at Night

The Rivers Current 
Flows in this Mind
Visions Drifting 
Propelled to the Waters Edge
Pockets of Wind  
Lead them to Their Port
I can only watch 
Binoculars give a close view
Their Course is Set  .....
Remember Once You Set Sail ......
There is No Turning Back.......
Navigating ones Head and Heart......

Lovers then we became strangers
now full blown adversaries
gladiators armored for destruction.
This is no longer a relationship
it is a ruthless affair
a house of cards
kill zone
minefield 101.
Words sharp than machetes
actions colder than waterboarding
we massacred us
we are locked up in solitary confinement
you the king of North
and this Nubian Monarchy is mine.
To the last Iron and Crown standing
its game on!

my drug

You are my drug.
Your smell brings me to my knees
Like crack brings an
Addict to his

The blood streaming 
Through your veins
Is the nicotine cigarettes 
Which after one drag
I'm hooked.

And no brand 
Of cannabis could
Compare to the high you give me,
When our lips finally touch.

Negative Poles


					        I--      love
			                     	you	  still
				          but I 	    can see
		          That our paths		  have gone awry
		     Our parallels				   have turned to Ys
	 And I do not know					how to say goodbye
                                            and so I won’t.

 				       Oil and	    water
			         emul---		        sified
		       have come				   apart
	           like cur					       dled cream;
	      Fision							      has split
                                              the nucleus.

				     I only	              hope
			     our flight		         will stop
	   While you still seem		             a part of me;
       If our limit is      					       not infinity
   I at least								      will know where
to											                  reach
                                                 for you

love rule

This is your rule forever 
This is my agreement forever 
You keep your distance 
I keep my promise 

How much i wish you could break your line 
How much i wish I could across your mind 
Your red rays make me weak 
My sorrow flow through your sick 

You save your smile for your love 
I lock my heart for my life 
This is you forever 
This is me forever

For A Special Someone

For A Special Someone 

How does one express his love 
for one as lovely as you?
A heart that was shattered
by the thoughts of yesterday,
Which could be repaired by the emotions of today.
For so long I have imagined soaring
toward a heavenly place
that only existed deep within my mind.
Your loving ways are rare,
trapping my deepest desires.
How can one such as I,
have any impact on a beautiful rose
surrounded by rainbows?
I will embrace thee for a lifetime.
I give you my heart, trust, and warmth,
but sometimes that’s just not enough,
for I will always love you.
