A George Michael poem
I may never know you 
But you music excited my heart
I may never know you
But your music make legend
I never knew you

I never knew you
I dedicate this Christmas to you...Read More

Speckles of dusts sparkled through soul
Numbed from dreams that held cost
Rumbles awaiting to carry forth whole
Staying awake to what was lost

Arrays of light washing clean
Inside true dome of frayed cloud
Forms of life scurrying around scene
Whispers of words shushed aloud

The Devils Circle
Tramped in a loop
Spinning around and around
Lost - confused
No meaning or purpose to be found

I know what I want
But the extreme feelings of fear
Brings me right to the same place
To the years I still hear

The screaming - The drinking
The dark...Read More

En Tigeray, es Tasmerelda

The Grey Skies
Staring into the bleak grey sky
Words cannot adequately supply
The reason... the meaning... why..?
I can only turn away and sigh

Much more out there to see
But how on Earth can this ever be?
Is there anything out there for me
To quench a soul...Read More

The journey of a loving poet
The journey of a loving poet

My fingers are like the twigs
in the autumn
having the construction of the sadness

Sunshine burned my skin,
unwitnessly comes as cancer.

Apple is sweet
eroding my teeth
-My silent faith

basked under the sunshine,
betrayed the fragrance of that girl

The stars in...Read More

In a broken land, sits a broken man
Trying to let go of a dream he had
His eyes forlorn, his thoughts are sad
Hoping some day, they will understand

It all went wrong, and didn’t last long
The fragility took him by surprise
Those times...Read More

A Ton Of Bricks
It hit me like a ton of bricks
I realize
I don't love you anymore
I know its been coming
I wished our love
Was something
That would last forever
I realize
That's in the past
The strange thing is
I'm relieved

White Angels, Glowing Lamps

When the wind blows, 
down from the great north, 
it brings a mighty frost. 
Do not be afraid. 
Just because something, 
makes you tremble, 
does not give it the right…
to win. 

Stand tall, all who guard the...Read More

Young Girl
If a young girl cries in her bedroom, 
And no one’s around to hear it, 
Does it make a sound?

What say of the echoing of her screams,
Her whimpers in the night,
And her fists she'll use to pound.

Disregard her furrowed brows,

Not made of candy, but real wood. 
It belonged to my father’s father,

In quiet breaths he sings your name


If on this eve of glistened skies
when crystal snowflakes fall
Amidst the hush of tempered sighs
where heartbeat whispers call

as moonbeams dance above
In wishes that you long to trace
of visions filled with love

Remember as the evening nears

It wasn't a memory as such but a story, 
Recounted time and again by parents loving and proud.
Young men are too occupied chasing visions and fleeing demons 
To remember.
Middle age concerns lean towards practicality, keeping or escaping it.

Can you hear me
God can you hear me?
I want to get this straight
What’s this reality
Is this really fate?
What kind of cruel joke is this
Ripping up our family
So far gone in the abyss
Can’t cope with this tragedy
What is life, if it’s not Hell
