As sure as this morning 
I saw the sun
I knew right then
You were the one. 

How could I question this surety?
When the sun is displayed so plainly to me?

For as long as it shines, blinding my eyes
I know that forever...Read More

Is it someone else
Ya'll know the one
Don't say you don't
Saying she gonna
Do this and that
You know she won't
Waiting for the
Right one
To come along
Everything you thought
Was special
She left and gone
Making promises
Thinking you all

Talking bout
Loving forever
Aint none of

From Dawn's Spirited Breath, See Red, Red Rose

When Summer rose meets dawning's sweetest hush
Sun comes to bequeath its dawn bathing rays
Red beauty gleaming, rose stills early rush
Into man's world shines, another bright day.

With red rose petals spreading ever wide
Calming thoughts,...Read More

Just Strands of Straw

I look into the mirror, 
my hair has dropped to the sink. 
It is a trail of tears, 
years of taking care of split ends, 
fluffing and drying, 
tying it up, 
leaving it down…
now, just gone.
My crown...Read More

Trauma Roses
I wanted to make you feel something 
I wanted to make you see 
that the pain that forced you into numb
had nothing to do with me...
But trauma doesn't affect all the same,
and since you lacked your own
you stole the innocence...Read More

Dreams of Halloween

Like a shadow moving in the darkness…
It is something seldom seen.
A total act of malevolence,
as monsters haunt your dreams…
As the sun goes down 
before tonight’s full Moon. 
A low rolling fog spread
feelings of foreboding and doom.
Ghouls and Goblins...Read More

With red painted lips and nails
She loved with all her heart and soul
This man who was often by her side

They found their way together

Mystery Lover
 He's a broken branch
that adds to beauty

A messy room 
that looks lively

He's that guy I fell for,
the one with beard
the one with mesmerizing eyes

There's a humor to his thoughts
a crack in his voice
he doesn't care and all the same

With fabulous luck luster delight and
The crickets sings chorus

Lipstick red lips on
Tombstone remains. Bloody red
Roses kiss the cold  
Breath of death, crystallizing 
Hearts overcome by the flame

Pretty Rain
Pretty Rain

Rose water 
Pretty rain 
Crisp refreshment
Sweet nectarous bloom 
A mild, potent fume
A graceful river flow
A breath of life
Floating delicate feathers 
Skies darker than blue
Sun of vibrant yellow hue
Rain maketh a bed in the earth 
For its heart to age...Read More

Is but 
Red roses
And fairy tales
The heart oozes for but a warm embrace 

At its core the bloom desires treasure
Muddy puddles

Not thirst, craving and ache , such is not love

Roses are Red Violets are blue
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
But is it really true?
Roses can be more than just red
While violets are violet or a blend of red and blue,
But why do poems say roses are red and violets are blue
If red is only one...Read More

The Colorful Rose
The art of love is largely the art of persistence.
The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.
A single rose can be my garden.a single friend, my world.

Like a red, red rose
My love is like

My love is like

~Robert Burns (1794)

For stealing our affections,
none has shown a greed
more selfish than the rose.

Within its self-indulgence
seeths a psychology
as perverse as any madness. 

Reach for one too quickly, 
what seems so innocent
so harmless, will strike 

at you like a serpent’s, 
fangs, as many...Read More

Life's Entropy
Roses are red
Violets are blue 
Azaleas are pink;
Camellias are to

The sun is shining;
Pastures renew
The sun rises;
Day breaks to

Light bleeds to Dark
Dreams do to
Azaleas are dying;
The camellias are wilting
Everything has turned an ungodly hue;
Thoughts mildly askew
As my world turned;
Shades of blue

Magic In Leaves
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Leaves are green,
green makes them alive
yellow makes them dead,
magic comes from water, and the heart that cares
just like when a person is hungry,
care is shown, by the action one takes,
to better the situation.

Life wasn't meant to...Read More
