Disney Princess
She's my Disney princess
She rings my Belle
To remind me I'm more than this Beast
She's my partner in crime
She's the Minnie to my Mickey
She's the Bonnie to my Clyde
She knocks the sense back in me
When I start acting a little Goofy
She...Read More

A Man His Soul Dwells, In Treasures, Mixed With Sorrows

Often looks back more than, at sweeter...Read More

Dear Cupid,
I really wish you had a heart (too),
For then I'd sink your arrow in it,
Break one half off and walk away,
Leaving the shard nestling halfway through,
So you know the pain of a broken arrow.

Lovers beware of Cupid's arrows,
One end...Read More

Wash Back Days

The past got a wet way of coming back
to unsettle the present
	with haunting future dreams
Who moistened the bed
with such troublesome memories?
There are dark terrors in the night
for the children 
of those whose fathers ignited the fright
Colonialism terrorism days
are washing back...Read More

It came and passed, and not a word was spoken
     as trills sang sweet from the tongue of the sparrow.

A Ghetto Conversation

Hey bruh, 
haven’t you heard,
ain’t you read the news?
The White House is gonna eradicate 
the fear infested inner city blues
That Trump fella says,
he’s got his poison pen ready to use
He says black folks got nothing going for ‘em,
so what have...Read More

Another dark dark night, the moon but a sliver
Just like the hope I carry, a broken arrow in an empty quiver
I know time will never end, I throw another one back
To dull the pain, my world insane, Its all been...Read More

The world keeps rocking 
to the sound of the void,
a pirouette through time
that we simply can't avoid.

But what have you done today?

Did the fool on his errand 
pass you silently by?
Did you have much to say,
as his time, like the...Read More

A collapsed cave houses my curse
Where once stood your altar
Memory haunts me like a headless horse
A broken man with an empty centre 

It’s been a decade and some tears
Since forever was lost to the winter
Imprisoned by the cold of commitment...Read More

The story of her life
   She wears her sadness like a sombrero 
Others laughing at her expense
   Her life resembles a broken arrow 
Still soaring in defense 

   She cooks, cleans and rocks babies
With a loving heart and...Read More

When love has been
I’ll be a distant memory
A dream that was and is now a tragedy
An event
A disappointment
Something sorry, unwise and naïve
Nothing worthy of your love

The heart you once felt 
The hearts that have since all left
The hand you once held
Let go to...Read More

Premium Member King of Poetic Darkness
There was a king, very Grimm
Who composed verse of the dead in the dim
The dim darkness of evil minds
Brothers of a sort in the black forest
He was in exile and away from the castle walls
He wept for lost loves and...Read More

No goodbye tears
Tell me it’s a nightmare
Rock away my fears
Because nobody cares
The feelings were so strong
I felt so cold and alone
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Is that really true I wonder than I ponder
A broken arrow
A broken vow
The unseen umbilical...Read More

Active Duty: The Comrade's Creed
The Creed

A crested lark rises in to the window 
	In the bittersweet rendezvous of a vow,
	And my fear passes, 
For it is in the free fall of our landing,
	its chord colliding into the road,
The sweet sovereignty of a caged bird...Read More

cycles of pitiful emotions
do we know the minds of the hurt and lost
 euphoric melancholy for some
a look into the minds of the so called brave
is it criminal or insanity
the broken arrow that wields the bondage of the meek

The Road
The road takes me on
Through meandering mazes
Into mists and hazes
Till the time of dawn

Fiery icicles swarm
As Heaven's haughty torch
Lies on azure porch
With flames to charm

Divine breaths plead
Pink rose-buds to dance
As swallows prance
Little mouths to feed

Drops of divine sorrow
Quench the meadows'...Read More

Broken Arrow
In the gray dawn,

surrounded by prairie,
a lone buffalo.

A symbol of heritage,

it sheds a tear;

Not for the dead,

but the living....Read More
