Premium Member Breathless Love


breathless waits my heart
for your velvet touch of love
my eyes seek fire

ethereal song
answers hearts first melody
anticipating

a bouquet of sweets
kisses tied with a ribbon
my love beckons me

fingers graze my cheek 
hungry lips kiss fingertips
petals opening

passion finds embrace
moans of delight cradle love

Premium Member forbidden fruits
oh my big cousin
a dusk gaze beamy lashes
a little temper

how foggy you are
forbidden fruits of knowledge
through bathroom keyhole

once she spanked the boy
but punishment was more like
a hidden caress

luckily she died
before I grew up enough
to do stupid things

unfortunately
I still try to...Read More

natural beauty,
a need to be free, the world...
she wanted to see!

for the love she brings,
we would give all things, to have...
for which the bird sings!

but who is this girl,
whose life we have watched unfurl...
like sand into pearl?

or Egyptian...Read More

Premium Member They Learn Young


a face with a smile
laughter endears it to you...
tears spill from your eyes.

children playing games
sounds of happiness abound...
the crack of a gun

a place of learning
instructed by skilled teachers...
in a state of shock.

panic starts to run
some will never walk again...
roses mark...Read More

shooting stars twinkle

sprinkling sparklers on the loose -

fading light expires


vows everlasting

impermanence tightly squeezed - 

woes’ storms intertwined


sunshine’s radiance

reflects warm silent repose -

disquieting loss


winter breeze swishes

seasoned kindness transgresses -

permafrost daggers


future corroded

skies disunited in pain-

new love on the rise


listen to my words

All By Myself

Hoping my dreams will spawn

Into the realities I seek,
And success to speak

That my efforts are in line,
For the goal in mind

Each hurdle surpassed,
Defeat I will outlast

For my confidence grows,
With each problem I depose

Emcee or poet
I'm told this isn't hiphop, just a bunch of well constructed words
And its not poetry either because it rhymes like a rap verse
At first, come to terms with the terms that your using
Then try to structure the point that your...Read More

Loyalty And Trust
Keep loyalty for only yourself 
forget what they say
be true to you not someone else 
and do it your way

Be aware you’re valuable 
it’s why they value you
when weakened and vulnerable 
see if they value you

Don’t assume if you give...Read More

Under the twilight sky of the setting sun

You will hear they find a frail voice and tell you
To write a eulogy for you...Read More

Today, would never be elected!
He'd be run out of rooms.
How dare he ask us:
"Ask not what your country can 
do for you, ask what you can
do for your country."

I remember being so moved by
that statement.
But our country has taken a new
direction.

A warning
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 6/9/2019

Almost in all of Europe, the limit has been exceeded
Not yesterday - long ago, but the minority
Had everything except empathy and servants on the leash: 
Officials favored by governments, police, and army
- This is how the...Read More

Once upon a century, 
Mister Ocean calm but afraid, 
She was far but had a selected destiny.

She was the biggest ship ever, 
On those times, she was also famous, 
She...Read More

Trying to Understand
This can’t happen, why didn’t I react faster
Feet planted in the ground, a dandelion too afraid to move
or someone’s wish will never come true
but if I’m only here to progress someone else’s will
who’s going to progress mine?

Gone from Us
Gone from us, no more to see
Left only with sweet memories

The angels took her home last night

They guided her through darkened flight
But sometime soon I think we'll meet
Perhaps to...Read More

What makes a poet, be a poet?
What makes a pilot, be a pilot?
What makes a janitor, be a janitor?

Determination will unlock doors that circumstances bars.
Natural abilities also bears weight in what they call, 'a gift'.
Same rules applies,...Read More
