The Fog of The Altar
To Jules Verne

A man feeling drowse at the top of the mountain, fell asleep.

He dreamed dreams
  emanating from floods of seas.
 In remote droughts,
 he gave his fruit of smoke
on a simple altar.

Curd quartz opened
 solidifying thousands of stamens,

A warrior's maiden
The night is cold
There is an owl perched on the gum tree
Its pitch dark outside
Its silent as a grave yard
She clings unto herself
Her mind wonders away
she reminisces her husband
pulling her into his chest
Fitting into his embrace
Like she belonged there
She lifts...Read More

Roman General Julius Caesar
Gazed across the narrow river.
He must decide, now or never,
To leave Cisalpine and endeavour
To ensure his fame forever:
"Alea Iacta Est!" (declared with fervour).

Sijui ni wangapi wata'define my history,
Wakitumia hii story.
But kitu najua ni ati nkifa,
Walevi ndo watachangisha doh kwa matanga,
na maybe;
Wengi watasema Marto alikuwa tanker.
Na ukijaribu ksema marto alikuwa wa youth ya church,
apo ndo MC atalenga iyo story.

Last night, I dreamed a dream I'd never forget
When my tired eyes sealed shut at the tail-end of dawn 
Morpheus spirited me away to a moonlit Xanadu; a sanctuary
Of beauty and peace. What a dream! It was my safe haven...Read More

Premium Member Imagining Arcadia
Where is this magical, peaceful utopia I've heard
And read about? I've followed the call of echoes
I've searched far and long into the wilderness
I've looked through the haze of morning mist
I've peeked into apertures pierced by sunlight

I can't rely on the...Read More

Haunted By A Long Lost Love
I should have done the right thing
But my naivety cost me a lot ,
Now I’m haunted by your lost love and loss,
Your smile and face I can’t forget ,
If rivers and springs flow fall into oblivion ,
Your beauty and trait...Read More

fear to uncover a mysterious pain
reach a depth of darkness hell
she blocked me out, and 
heaped hills within hills
masked her ravaged heart 
with forceful smile
her lips stayed shut, yet
spoken without a sound
crumbling body ruins, 
banned from a touch of love.

Love Has Found A House
She is more than beauty,
More than words upon the page.
She means so much to me;
I've been given saving grace.
She is more than curves,
Not just a pretty face,
Someone I don't deserve;
I've been given saving grace.
I could cast my cares,
Into every here...Read More

About Headphones and Melody
Once there was a song,
That reminded me of you,
While I felt so strong,
Under sky,
Of midnight blue.
Once there was a time,
While I played a favorite tune,
A pen and written lines,
A thought of you....Read More

The Rising Sun of Dawn
Which words may lay at rest,
While my heart still beats for her,
'Til my dying breath,
Lays a faint whisper?
All that has begun, 
Is a love in modest bloom, 
Like the rising sun,
Meant to light a sky of blue....Read More

How Blessed Am I To Find You Here
My heart can't speak on reasons,
Concerning this reality;
She's with her man and he is,
Maybe a better man than me.
I want that opportunity,
I wish to be the one.
How may I know truthfully,
That our time has come?...Read More

If The Loving Words Fell Upon My Heart
I'd write her a letter,
I'd write her a song;
I'd write her whatever,
Is on my heart.
If I had the passion,
If I had the tune,
Inspired, in fashion,
I'd write it for you....Read More

We're not cool
We’re not cool
We’re in love.
We’re not looking for where we belong
We are free

We’re everything there is
To each other
There isn’t another
I’d want as my lover

You’re totally great
And my best mate
Still let’s be clear
And reiterate

We’re not cool
We’re in love.

Reanimation Damnation
Quiet is the night, laid blight amid this infernal necropolis
Loosely mantled soil, smother marrow of perished veneration
Yet windows still aflame, a dormant witness to troth thirst
Cold and stiff, until a shift, unearthed

To The Lady Of The Heavens
Could I find my heaven,
With my head up in the clouds?
Could she be here then,
Every present waking hour?
Find my heart my love,
If love at all be true.
Like the sunlight on a flower,
May my kiss be worn by you....Read More

I don't believe,
That she is the worst.
I can't recall,
How badly it hurts.
Rage won't live,
Inside my heart.
I'd rather just have her,
Within my arms.
My face might say,
The way I may think.
Love, come to me,
Dear masterpiece.

Hate, don't speak,
Don't preach any words.
