I miss you

I miss you, 
like the sky misses the stars.
like the streets when there are no cars.
like a government that has no laws,
like music, when it is on pause.

I miss you,
like the desert misses the rain
like an addict without cocaine, 
like a kiss that misses lips
like actors without their scripts.

Don't rush to wash off the sea salt 
drying on your skin;
the hopes it carries from other oceans,
those remain yet to be seen.

Red Light

have you ever felt like 
the flashing red light on the roof,
lonely as ever
visible at night, useless by day?

in sync with its partner next door
for a quick kiss over a few flashes only 
then arguing again and again 
night in, night out.

have you ever felt like 
the flashing red light on the roof,
not signaling a warning to keep away
but sending a call for compassion?

using the dark pauses in between 
to yell the same name 
over and over and over
into the emptiness of each night.

have you ever felt like
the flashing red light on the roof,
being your silent cry
only heard by your eternal love?

My Boredom Disease

Like sick allergies, 
Boredom can be passed around

Like a horrid storm,
Boredom can catch you off guard
Hold on for DEAR LIFE!

Like the whooping cough,
Boredom can be serious
If I were you, I’d
Get a vaccination !

let go of all your fears.

4 Love

Love is a four letter word
she whispered into his ear,

So is four, as is word
he whispered back into her fear,

Such is "you and I"
cried his heart - she could hear,

Their cheeks hugged, eyes kissed
each shedding a single tear.

Summer rain

I looked upon the stars , When I gazed at your face.
I seen mars & flying cars I hope this vision don't fade. 
I wonder why these butterflies want escape the base of my brain. 
Sometimes I think that your love ain't the same.
Your smile turn to a cry like how the sunshine became sudden rain. 
You bring my heart sudden pain why did you walk away . 
All the trust you've gain just to erase.
Please don't change summer rain. 
Please don't fade summer rain. 
I need summer rain to make flowers grow .
And when the hours go past I laugh at all the things we could've had. 
Or should've had. 
Rain pours on the glass after an hour pass 12. 
And all I can think about is how I needed your help. 
I wondered what you see in myself. 
Or did you heal my heart because I needed your help. 
Summer rain you are so far away.
And Every time I complain you go further in the wind. 
Some nights I pretend that we'll be one again.
Summer rain summer rain I hate that you faded away. 
My heart has faded To gray ... 
Without you My heart is Arizona & California in the summer days ...  
You're so far away I prayed for your summer rain.

Toonami I Miss You So

Once, something we took for granted
Now gone, forever to be mourned.
My source of awesome anime has been transplanted.
Cartoon Network, you face an enemy scorned!

Though it's been so long I still miss it. RIP Tom.

It's not Funny

My Parting Gift.

It’s not Funny

Never leave Life’s bus behind.
It’s full of much that rhymes.

Count only on the adventure.
Even if the need for dentures.

Don’t count on the money honey.
From me it's not funny or coming.

I thought of you again today
It seems your memory gets in my way
I try to forget but I only got regrets
I thought of you again today

Outside it's sunny but I feel funny
I'm cold and blue
So cold cold so so blue
Just can't stop thinking of you

Trying to get a bite to eat
End up ordering your favorite treat
Now I lost my appetite
I'm just not right.
When will this end
I thought of you again

Trying to sleep at night
But I'm wound up to tight
What's wrong with me
Why do I cling to thee
I need to sleep but when? when? when?
I keep thinking of you again and again

Out with my new girlfriend
The date ends before it begins
I must be insane
Calling her your name
I thought of you again and again and again
I thought of you again

Thinking of what to say at your door
Before I can leave you open your door
You look at me and smile
Invite me to stay awhile
You ask should we try again
As I kiss you, how I missed you
I will never ever leave you again
As I love you, again and again.

Get ready for the ride of a lifetime.
Don’t get it twisted, sit back, relax, stay calm, unwind, 
trust and believe, all’s going to work out, all’s going to be fine. 
Welcome to the “Time To Change The World” traveler’s guide, 
where your safety, finance and peace of mind I hold with pride,
You’re guaranteed comfort right here on this slide; 
determination by your demographics, religion or color of skin? 
Not on this ride, all welcomed come on in. 
Are you ready? Excited? Well let’s begin. 
A wondrous world from the beginning to the very end. 
Now this is more than just a proposition, 
no longer a need for ammunition, 
gun manufacturing an abomination, 
a high priority is to save our nation. 
Once gun factories are shut down, 
farming communities would make the round, 
for where these buildings once stood, 
feeding the people would be the good.
Higher education about educating, teaching, serious learning, not the cost;
Walk the stage, new beginning, no burden of loans, not a loss.
Not to repeat the past learn from it, for it is our history;
That deep rooted Women’s inferiority complex will not be
The Black Man slave mentality no longer his-story;
The White Man superiority complex barely a memory.
The word free goes back to it’s original meaning
Not like in today’s commercials, “try it for free” shipping and handling intervening.
The new mentality is “Love Of One Nation, One World”
this goes out for every man, woman, boy and girl
Each and every family is guaranteed a home
Be it a family of ten or a family of just one alone. 
Cost of living is an affordable scale as it should be
Housing, food, clothes, jobs of which there are plenty;
set up and maintained for the many, being denied life’s essentials there won’t be any.

The punch and judy show

How big you seemed, how bright your stage
how loud and funny, in my little boy's eyes 
you were larger than everyone else's life,
even a lifetime later, your memory still is

Those amazing vaudeville routines, with new
command performances for each gathering, 
were rehearsed in daily kitchen pantomimes
while we children sat in wide eyed awe

An Irish version of the Honeymooners,  
so funny that you didn't need Art Carney
so real that sometimes, I held my breath
....to the moon, McGinty, to the moon!

He would bellow and I would nervously ask,
is she really going to the moon, Mommy?
Then they'd be off on another rollicking
road in the evening's riotous repertoire 

The quieter types would roll their eyes
when the curtains would part on Act 1
while everyone else laughed and wished
that they could be just like you two

To the moon, McGinty, to the moon....

Doors clamping as i could not find sleep

Dogs barking and trembling in the neighborhood

Lying in my bed,eyes wide open,cold feet

Like horror foot prints flashed on my walls

Frightened and terrified,could not imagine it was real 

Strange hands that reached for my thighs 

Fingers hurting deeply as it penetrates

So scruffy i had screamed my name 

Like a rose just got dried

Freezing and loud the wind blows 

My sheet squeezed l was choking 

Somebody help me, i lost my voice

Could i be dreaming i asked in silence

Imaginations gone bad , thoughts were awful

felt a grasp of my neck and my eyes were red

The night was too long i could not pretend

I suddenly reached for an object to strike 

Amazing, what It had become 

A rod i do not want to let go 

In a trance i had seen the mask

On the wrist, it was twelve past twelve

That time of that day,we met!

I don’t know how to express this thing!
Is it just stupidity or abnormal feelings? 
Let me start like this,
Listen carefully you lovely Miss! 

When I first saw you
I have felt the drop of dew, 
In my lonely abandoned heart! 
It’s like a surprise rose in the dirt! 
I became hypnotized
My world turned to paralyzed, 
Your voice became my song
Your move became my belong, 
I became crazy and it was scary!
Thence to tell, I had to hurry!
I cannot carry anymore,
I have feelings to share!
Can you hear? My lovely dear! 

I request the rain to stop
When you talk, 
It’s more important to embrace your voice 
Rather than the rain to drop!

I have asked the sun not to shine
When you smile,
Your red lips can light the universe
Which I consider my poems charming verse!

The promise of the moon not to bloom
When you sleep in the gloom, 
Your sadness darkened the world
When I want the time to behold!

Tell me how can I convey my itch?  
How can I show my miserable glitch? 
How much I care and how much I dare?  
Can you hear? My eternal dear!

~Sometimes your true feelings lie in the poem which you pen but never send.




What do I do to make you feel…

that my love for you is so much real

It gives me thrills,

it gives me chills

my mind collides,

while my heart subsides

And everything around me,

seems colourful and happy


What do I do when I’m all alone

as if no one sees the empty zone

that occupies my lonely heart,

and breaks it slowly when we’re apart

What do I do to make you feel this way?

to make you feel my heartbeat

 and make you hear what it say…


_Coz time is running too fast

And I can’t let this moment pass…

I need you to know all of these

So that my heart will be put at ease.

Baby I want a piece of that Pi
because your curves are unending.

Stop trying to divide our love 
and stop pretending.

Don’t even try to square root us two
because that’s just irrational.

My heart burns from my stomach acid
the pH level must be 10
but you are no where near basic, 
just face it.

I just want your love
and we can even use your favorite flavored glove.

Baby we are just equations in this universe 
Sadly, nothing can compare how much we are diverse.

I’ve tried to come to the light,
but I always end up end in a fight.

You make me feel bad
and I just love the way you make me feel so glad

So what is the equation for us?
If I was Einstein and a little nuts,
I would spend eternity looking until my spirit is finally crushed.

For Me

I hear the rain drops falling non stop but this time it didn't mask over my thoughts. 
Rather broke all I had blocked, 
I knew I had to get over such thoughts.
The thoughts about you. 
The way your lips touched my skin, and how you pulled all within. 
I want someone who is long gone, it was time that I moved on. 
See, your name is stamped across my chest... No worries I'll ripe a whole new skin. 
It's not your fault but I have to do this for myself.

I Miss You

I miss you
Like the planet misses the stars
Like the ground misses the sky
Like the spider misses the fly
Like the drunk misses bars
Like the old man misses cars
Like summer misses rain, such is my subtle pain
Freezing, like winter's breezes
Unpleasant, like certain soft cheeses
Like the boat moored to the dock I am hardened, like a rock
And if only to spend an hour, maybe two
Spinning silly words to you
Then perhaps my heart may twitch
Perhaps those beats will sustain
And for an hour, maybe two,
I can live again.

Dedication to Jazmine

I'm loosing hope
my heart is giving in
my mind is dying off
and its only been 2 days
since seeing you.
im going crazy
my heart hurts
without you
my soul
is in the fiery depths of hell.
it burns in 3rd degree
as I yearn to see you again
it destroys me when we can not contact
it kills me not hearing
your angelic voice
it deprives me
not feeling your love
not having your protection
I feel alone
so alone

love walks into a bar
sees hope drinkin' it away;
what's wrong, love asks
nothing's wrong, hope replies, 
nothing is wrong...

love turns to fate the bartender
and orders two shots of everything.

She's Not Here

Whenever I am reorganizing and freeing up space in the garage,                                                                                                         it's always just a matter of time before she'll come calling.
Or I'm on the computer writing or catching up on the news,                                                                                           it never fails that an urgent honey do was just about due.
She's been visiting relatives for the last two weeks.                                                                                             She's got two more weeks before she returns home to me.
More than expected, I felt her absence the very first week.                                                                                                  Several times I have caught myself waiting to be interrupted.
Often I've had to readjust or reprogram my mind; "Home alone".                                                                                 I say to myself, "Oh wow, she's not here", and resume my activity.

In 45 years of marriage, we have never been separated this long.                                                                                     Realistically, for the first time, I am missing her in a whole new way.
In 45 years, I've never missed her this long, this much, this way.                                                                        I'm niether bored nor lonely, because I always have plenty to do.

I have  been gathering and eatting more tomatoes since she's been gone.
I suspect I'll be eatting crowder peas and zucchini before she gets home.
I wish she could have seen me gathering peaches and nectarines today.
I can't deny; I've eatten more ice cream than I should; but I'm not all bad.
Why, a couple of days ago, I made a very tasty peach/nectarine smoothie.                                                                              I must confess; I just have to say; I kid you not; and believe me when I say.
I will welcome her return and not be sad when things return to normal. But                                                                              I'm 'tickled pink' that since she's been gone, the phone hardly rings anymore!!

Go back to Sleep

Go back to sleep, sweetheart. 
Get rest, roll over, close your eyes and 
Be still, my love. 
Your tossing and turning
Your restless night wanderings
They disturb my dreams. 
Don't forget we share this same bed
Though thousands of miles apart.

I'll Miss You

I'll miss you at night,
and even through the day,
I'll miss you when I read a book,
and sometimes when I see a play,
I'll miss you whenever I can't think of what to say,
I'll miss you because you're sweet,
and always full of joy,
I'll miss the way you inspire me to write a funny poem,
I'll miss you when you're gone,
and not here anymore,
Most of all I'll miss you a lot,
and that's what this poem is for

You said you want, you say you treasure.
But it's impetus in your heart and veins,
pompous in that fact, the heat drives fast-
beldams with your cruelish handsomers.
I vividly crawl in your genius,
quest on a very long journey in-
and yet out, though for a timely cut.
An uncouth dream forever trapped out.
And you wished those feelings over again.
