Premium Member The Long goodnight
Tonight, in my bedroom, 
I sleep alone...

Remembering our 
romantic moments
as I wait by the phone.

We were the melody 
in the music,
a harmony in tune.  
You were the midnight flower,
and I... 
the light of the moon.

Once Was
Faith was once you possessed 
Doubt now fill wells
Tears have filled cups
Mirrors never reflected intentions 
You’ve judged me papers 
History can never tell the future
History once was,
so was our journey 
May you find peace in your faith
What you have set...Read More

Danny Salazar in Leavenworth
They could have ranged together foreever, in just that way
The moment of experience, un-cloaked and with innocent play
In co-creation perfect, when the Lord frequently appeared With approval and fulness of strength, and nothing he feared
Since Abel was able. That is...Read More

I made a sand dune as he had done,
We were children and sand was fun,
A beautiful castle with a deep moat,
Filled with water and a paper boat!

Imagined soldiers guarded the fort,
Fates were decided in palace court,
imagined Prince rode a white...Read More

Give me a life line and let's make real those fairy tales you once dreamt of
The wonderland isn't too far
It is closer and more fun than the said Disneyland 
It's just by the valley of the stretched mountains...Read More

I held on tightly. 
But I watched you fall, and I couldn’t catch you. 
Or maybe you let go. 
And the flame went out. 
But the wax kept on melting, and it hardened. 
Or maybe you cut of the oxygen....Read More

Premium Member Your Coffee Locks- LEI
Your coffee locks as soft as silk,
incensed with rich vanilla milk,

exotic as southern isles 
extend for nautical miles

against tamarind skin flowing,
like radiant sunbeams glowing

upon my dreamy fixation,
beaconing my exploration.

Premium Member Stoning and Boning
Looking in each other’s eyes
we’d have what I like to call, 
completely competitive conversations. 
Nether one of us conceding the point.
Back in the day, 
this would go on  until 
one of us would pull out a joint.
Not exactly a...Read More

It's Been A Long Day
It's been a long day
And all I've got to say is make it strong
It's been a long day
And all I've got to say is I've been wrong
So take a leave of absence
Tell me you'll be gone
I don't want to see...Read More

The Africans of old
At night, slept and of Africa 
For Africa they dreamt
Of a day to come 
When Africans will be free 
Uhuru Uhuru Uhuru
From every form of enslavement 
And oppressions.

In peace and...Read More

The truth is stranger than fiction.
As they say,
you can’t make this stuff up.
It was the middle of summer,
And I was looking for a way to defeat
Fort Sill’s Oklahoma heat.
Escaping to the cooler climate
of Buffalo New York seem to be a...Read More

The Blackness

Black grapes dangling from a vine
the darker the skin, the sweeter the wine

Black clouds erupting across the sky
raindrops flowing profusely, echoing a nubian cry

Black soil with of its minerals and hidden richness 
solid terrain for life and growth,  a...Read More

Opulent garments on them well arrayed
Consciences, they have betrayed
And staggering precariously on wobbling feet,
Drunk bodies sat on many a seat
Grey monstrous looking vultures
Assembled to decide on their flesh eating ventures.
‘National dialogue’ they say
A fairytale till this very day

Broken Heart
That's the problem about me
I can't live with a broken heart,
If you give me a broken heart
How do you expect me to live with it

Can you live with a broken heart,
If you can do so then teach me
How to live...Read More

A kiss is like the first lick of an ice cream cone.

Premium Member The Promise - Part II
my skin 
was once smooth
now feels 
like unpaved cement
placing roses 
on my grandmother's grave
you found me 
right outside the gated cemetery 
you placed roses in my hand
before your fingers became entangled in mine
you touched my face
you kissed my cheek
and then...Read More

I can only tell you part 
of my Aunt Roberta’s story.
I heard my cousin Cathy say
She’s an angel gone to glory.
She was a friend to all,
a Mother to many 
Of enemies in her life
I don’t think she had any.
