For One Pass Of Your Breath


you write your words and they make me cry you write those word and you know i die but i've died so often now i held you in my arms while you smelled my hair i saw that pretty little smile you saved for me we always ran  too wild to walk it takes two to tango only one to pirouette when you did your round about turned over every single  leaf left me out alone in the dead of spring or  was it winter,  it must of been 'cause i know i almost froze you kissed me back when we first met we kissed a lot way back then how you loved my lips the touch of my skin your thick black mane  how you'd whip it back exposing yourself all bare we never turned off the lights or ever said hush do you still own those dice the ones in gold with embedded gems in black you use to love to roll them  rolled those snake eyes that bit i'd swallow the poison like lemonade stripped naked, handcuffed and whipped your ceramic nails tearing at me my flesh on them  the blood on my back i didn't know   wore my white shirt 'till someone screamed from behind it was red i dripped on the floor like a lit candle melted like a witch drenched in Dorothy's water you clicked your ruby heels and you were gone i wasn't in Kansas anymore walked around with a briefcase  in my Armani suit i never shed a tear bedded woman half my age they lined up in droves  to be with this broken man i would yell like a cowboy riding a bucking bronco and i never fell i was the man  everybody told me so i would smile shyly   thank them their praise but i knew who i was make no mistake every rodeo has its clowns  I wasn't the matador even though I spoke fluent bull the only knifes i carried were in my back do you remember my white shirt the whole time i justified me to me by not thinking by not talking by not listening by not wishing  or even dreaming we both knew there was a gun in my briefcase we both knew I would never use it didn't own any bullets still i pulled the trigger some joy in that  pointed to my head click, nothing  and when I saw you yesterday and I held my breath for longer then I ever had i thought the room would never stop spinning i remember we spoke how i saw it in yours eyes as plain as day regret you knew of my success how fine i looked in my silk woven garb you said drinks? but i looked at my watch asked for a raincheck you'd have none of it and i think your teeth fell out when i walked          anyways I didn't understand your look you knew i had a backbone you know i never flinch that's the story of life take it when you got it with some guys there are no be backs my legs were like led as i walked away and i could hear your tears but i don't care much for phonies you threw it all away when you decided  to look the other way it broke me inside i'd never be the same i never turned to look  yesterday slept the same as always four hours tops nothings changed i'd give my right arm for one pass of your breath  against my lips but my soul? never!...i'll live with the pain. and other man stare and other man wish quietly yearning to be me you know i want to laugh success is like a flashy book cover the cover is what sells the book nobody bothers to read it but they know the jacket by heart set up a turnstile in my house watch the ladies come and go never let them get close never invite the nice ones the good ones the real ones never want to hurt anyone never want them to hurt like me to hurt like me hurt like me like me me? i'd give my right arm for one pass of your breath  against my lips...

Runaway with me

Would you pack up and run away with me if I were to ask you to today?
Would you throw aside all the past? The turbulence we shared? Would you forget the screaming matches and remember what we shared?

If I dream of this; is there a chance that it may come true? The answer is too much time has passed, and there’s nothing more to say or do (unhappy face). 

But I keep on hanging on, like a worn out Diana Ross song. I blame you; bellowing ”you just keep me hanging on”. 

It seems I fell victim to the powers of your kiss. I treated you badly I didn’t realize how much I’d miss. 

In this case there are no victims, there are only volunteers, and it seems you too fell ‘victim’, still loving me after all of these years.

I’d like to say I am sorry, but this is a worn out tune. I do have regrets. I blame it all on me. As they say it takes two to tango I wish now that I could see. 

But then how could I be sorry to have loved so passionately? I am the lucky one, that someone too loved me. 

I still ask would you run away with me? Take me to the justice one more time for a quiet ceremony? 

Walk with me through life as if this is something we ever knew how to do. Accept the others faults with no backdoor to escape through.
 
Grow old and gray together family at our side, the American dream they call it a wild, bumpy ride.

All of the latter is something we will likely never know, but the passion once shared will surely never go.

Its electrical magnetic charge is etched upon my heart. Those times when we were young and would just do ‘it’ anywhere, that heat that drew us like flames we didn't have a care. 

I ask again, would you run away with me?! Run away with me now!!! there’s no time to make haste. Life really is short we mustn't let it waste.

My beauty fades fast my love, my lines have become deep, my desires they are waning. Still my love for you I keep. 

Run away with me my sweetheart I promise I’ll be fair. I will love you to the ends of time, more than you can bare. 

Run away even if you have to wait until the dark of night. Run away with me my love make everything alright.

Taken For A Ride

Saville row suit with lots of loot
You start to talk - his jokes are a hoot
No wedding ring upon his finger
You hold his gaze and let it linger

You leave together in his fancy car
Passionate kisses follow – you go too far
He promises to call you like some men do
Has he just made a fool of you

You don’t know anything; not even his name
It takes two to tango – you are both to blame
Nine months later and your baby arrives
The only thing you know is the car he drives

One day you see this man in the street
A wife by his side, 2 kids at his feet
You stare at him and catch his eye
He looks at the baby and then at the sky

It Takes Two to Tango

I admit what I did was wrong
And for six months I tried to hold out and be strong
But your sister’s advances were persistent
She just didn’t want to leave me alone

She would grope me in the basement
And kiss me in the corridor
She’d feel me in the kitchen
And whisper she can do me better as long as I didn’t tell a soul

She would touch me in the basement just behind the storage wall
Then she would stroke me in the boiler room and have herself a ball
Your sister was promiscuous and didn’t care to stop
All she wanted was to steel me from you so she climbed up on top

In her mind she was older
And tried to justify her lustful actions as being right
And even though she too had a boy friend
Her jealousy ran deep because it was me she wanted to keep

Her imagination had convinced me too 
That you were sleeping between the sheets
She planted this view in the back of my mind of John and you
I didn’t know and couldn’t discern what was right

She didn’t want a condom
She made that very clear
All she wanted was my seed
So she rode me like a bull to breed

From the stroking and petting
To the hugging and tonguing
She would bend over easy 
But wouldn’t swallow a drop

A thought comes to mind 
Why do I post this on line
Because this is only part of the story
To simply hurt you the way you did me

They say karma has a kick
That is fine with me 
I have a temper with an onion to peel
I hold back no more as the truth shall set me free

From our actions to our deeds
My desires as a writer run deep
In Buddhism they say to reflect and let go and be saved 
or give your pain to Jesus and everything will be ok

I have triggered a beast of suppressed anger by remembering
I have danced through fire the door way of lust
I sacrificed my heart and created a hole in my soul
But I could not save a love that meant the most to me

Two is better than One

Whoever said they can make it on 
their own
never intended to live and love
the way it's meant to be done, 

it takes two to tango
two to create a duet
even holy matrimony requires two
sharing life with someone is so much better, 

then doing it alone
the laughter
the tears
the uphill battles
loving madly, 

falling deeply
savor every moment
it's all signs
that
two is better than one...

Into the dark

You, you hide us
Between the lines
Missing me you lie
I give up this time

I can only try so hard
It takes two to tango
And I don't want to fight
You want to take me into the dark

Why are you putting shard's of glass in everyone's eyes
Covering up your honest feelings with lies
The truth always comes to life

My head hurts 
All I want is some of your sweet relief
Why are we becoming a secret

Can you just free me
You run off to my room
Why are we sneaking
You're leading me off into the dark again

You love the tattoos on my skin
Remember us kissing under the stars
Now you try to hide me like a sin
Am I truly a crime you've been committing

MARRIAGE: A Meeting Of The Minds

marriage is a partnership and you both will come to find
that communication is basis when it comes to a meeting of the minds
Trevor be kind to Zetoria and support her in every aspect in life
she's the one that God sent to you, your soulmate, your wife
Zetoria be patient with Trevor as men have such sensitive souls
and in all things work with him and let your husband thinks he's in control

It takes two to tango, it takes two to make it right
remember you're both disciples of Christ and on you both He shines His light
talk to each other and always be open-minded to what each other has to say
it might not always be what you want to hear so on it don't forget to pray
 marriage that institution that God put into place
a meeting of the minds full of His mercy, wisdom and grace

Beached Whale

Im like a whale 
Beached on your sand
I was too stupid to know 
I wasn’t meant for land
That evolution doenst happened
As fast as you planned
That when you saw me out of water
I was too big so you ran
Im left staring at your footsteps 
Imprinted on the sand.
Remember how I was big enough
To carry you across the sea
You were my Jonah when you needed me
I became your bridge 
To take you from point A to point B
But Ive drawn a line in the sand 
That your bridge wont cross
Because when you share the same land
You share it for all that it cost
You pried me open
But my pearl was too stained
From the last time I was opened
And left out in the rain
Im not a bookend 
My only role isn’t your support
I had imagined we were like two sticks
Propped together
Able to stand in the wildest of weather
For even man can stand on two legs 
When hes not sober
As long as he as the other 
He might sway but he wont fall over
It takes two to tango
It takes two to fight
Yin and yang still need each other
Even though they are black and white
I guess the point of this poem 
Is I cant run a two legged race 
Without your legs
And Ill never get to the place
Where you want me to be
If your not willing to lend 
a little of your support to me

A LOVE CONNECTION: ANGEL & NELSON

never go to sleep on anger 
keep the lines of communication open and clear
listen to what each other has to say 
even if it's something you don't want or think you need to hear
remember it's no longer only about you
you're not in this all by yourself
you're now husband & wife, man & woman 
in sickness and in health

marriage requires a lot of work
so consider this now your primary role
for it takes two to tango
and two halves to make a whole
as a husband Nelson it's mostly up to you
to keep the romance feeling brand new
and as a wife Angel you know your position
is to help Nelson make a smooth transition

you have found your soul mate, you have found your best friend
and may the love and faith you have in each other endure til the end
and just make sure that trust is the glue
that keeps your relationship binding and true
always respect each other and always give each other some space
and never forget to thank God daily for His infinite grace
the Lord has blessed you both with a marvelous love connection
so keep believing in each other and may you have a union just short of perfection

put all others to the wayside

The Lord has blessed you both
with a glorious love connection
so just keep believing in each other

Blending in tango


strongly believe
with what you said
very confident
with what you felt

it is a perfect expression
the pure glow 
of a sincere heart

there is a love

no doubt
love in your eyes
love in your thoughts
full in a dream 

there is a love

I guess that love 
is a tango
have to careful alignment 
needs a chemistry 
the unity
blending in tango 

if my love could choose 
as what my wish 
if my love could select
like selecting a menu
if my love could pointed at anyone

will not hesitate 
to choose you

but love is a tango
and it takes two to tango

i still don’t feel the tango
tango in the moon
tango in the dreams

On Your Own

You can dance to your own rhythm, sure you can,
it is not too difficult I have seen it frequently done;
there is nothing better than doing things your way
and starting off alone on a long deserted highway.

He who goes by himself gets there soon and fast
while he who waits for the others gets there last;
there are times when it works best to be an island
if the point is to get ahead of the rest of the band.

While there is no question it takes two to tango,
why must we necessarily wish to do the tango?
we can sway just as well with our own shadow
to keep us company with the lights turned low.

Yes, you can dance to the tune, on your own!

Dance with My Wife on Her Birthday

Never in our life
We found ourselves on the dance floor
They say in marriage, it takes two to tango
So we only dance to the routine of life

Never, we dance to the beat of our love song
We are separated by time and space
On the eve of your birthday, let’s have our virtual dance
Shall we dance to infuse romance in the air?

With you as my partner twiddling to the tune
May we swing dance to an up-tempo music
To fix our webcam and play the music in YouTube
We will dance all night and fight shy of rejection

Sweet dancing could only be possible in cheek to cheek
I will try to imagine, I am cuddling you in my arms
Whispering sweet nothings, “I am yours forever”
“Happy Birthday, the night belongs to us alone”

The Woman I Came In To

Take pleasure in chapters from the past; 
some are affairs never to be revisit in this residue.
Only tongues look a lot like God; secrets have no echoes.
Therefore, set apart these small portions, the ones telling,
 so as light fades, there will be unending memoirs.
The house is still there, standing 
amongst those dressed to celebrate the season.
There she stood with her snaking passage  
leading to that memorable chamber.
The oak could not hide her with out-stretched arms; 
it was the time to molt like a red Hampshire hen.
Who recall those spring mattresses, when there are goings-on, 
that sound like birds summoning leaves on naked trees?
Those springs knew that it takes two to tango; 
they knew the woman who kept me warm.
She was gone with the wind and brought this on me; 
a space-heater that hugs the mould filled wall 
dries the natural oil from my cocoa-brown skin. 
The adjacent wall; the wall that stop her 
roaming with shame into the room 
next-door. People were always screaming at us.
She was so warm. Her bosom recalled a Jersey cow. 
She tops this freaking space-heater, and she never hums –
Never distasteful; she was never filled.
She rained heavily, and gushed out.

Queen Esther

Elegant steps,
The gaze of a queen, 
Clandestine; reaching the pinnacles of great towers
Whose garment I long to wrap for warmth. 

The smiles stands tall the heights of the Himalayas
This beauty - a gaze upon the mirage, 
Which ponders as its piercing power undermines wits

Angels set before work to carve out stool 
Stool meant for an eagle! 
This eagle is mine for I long for the queen's presence. 
If ye wonder why Esther be great, then I tell you why kings be born 

A race I'm winning; 
For it takes two to tango

My Queen, long may you reign in my kingdom 
Enshrined with meekness, 
Such candour your presence gives
For a lifetime, 
For eternity,. 
A guard of heart
A gentle heart
A queen's heart...
I shall gladly guide

Take a chance

Take a chance.


Send me a sign, to show me how you feel,
And I'll return my message to you, in a little while.
I'm taking the first step, but it takes two to tango,
So what do you think, shall we dance with each other?
Will you become my lover and my lay with me tonight?
Or shall I leave you to these people and not be by your side?


You see, I'm the one who made you smile,
And you told me that it's been a while,
Since you remember being happy and thinking like this,
But I too harbour the bad memories, that come with this thing.


But if I can take the risk, then I'm sure you can too,
If you can't, I understand, I've been there too darling.
Those crazy misspent days and those long winter nights,
Left us happy and content 
And we were always happy when we weren't crying.


But times stands still for no man and it's time for me to leave,
I've got to leave you here alone now, 
So you can breathe a sigh of relief.
You may want things to be different, 
But I'm a ghost ship passing by,
The guy you thought you made a connection with, 
In the blink of an eye and an awkward smile.


In that moment I saw you truly, 
As you wished no-one could see you right now,
With your guard down and you hair messed up, 
You shone so bright like a nuclear cloud.
An explosion in my heart and then you were gone,
Tomorrow you may not remember me, 
But you shall not be forgotten.


A single smile, with your red hair in the wind,
Reminded me of what could be, if I changed a few things,
And forgot those bad memories, that have now engulfed me.
They keep me here trapped, letting nobody in.


I'm willing to risk it all and lay here at your disposal,
To dispose of at your dissatisfaction, 
But to keep while I'm still useful.
Until the day comes when you disappear into the night,
Then like a candle blowing in the wind, 
Your love will walk out of my life.


But the pains we have endured, shall become our cure,
Make us stronger this time; we can do it for sure.
Just one girl and one boy, how hard can it be?
It's as easy to do as you’re A,B,Cs.

YOU DID THIS TO ME

I looked at her and she looked fine
Until she turned to the side.
Something strange about that girl
She was shorter than she was wide.

She held her hands below her waist
And pulled up once in a while.
Then she rubbed it down again
Giving her face a little smile.

"Do you feel that?",  she would say
As she put my hand on her tummy.
The movement kind of startled me
So I didn't feel very "chummy".

"He's kicking again, and it's all your fault
YOU DID THIS TO ME!"
Then I would remind her of that night
When she wanted to be free.

"It takes two to tango." , I said to her
"You didn't seem to mind it then."
"But I never expected this consequence
When we acted as lovers not friends".

It's been almost nine months now
What is there to say?
We're not having a kitty or puppy
But a baby is on the way.

I'm sure we'll love the bundle of joy
That has been ordained for us.
With priceless smiles and goo goo talk
And grandparents who'll coo and fuss.

For a child always comes by way of love
Not only through passion's route.
But when he's born our lives will change
Of that, I have no doubt.

"So Lord, give us the grace
To raise our child with encouragement and love,
That he will grow in strength and wisdom
That can only come from above."
