Each of us
With our own secret gifts
Magic potions lovely notions
Waiting to be shared
Waiting to be aired
Each of us
A half, a whole, a mind, a soul

A heart and yet a part
Of a better richer more
Looking for the door
The key, the you,
The me, the we
Growing day by day
Looking for the way

To find what I’d always dreamed
And never...

Take A Chance

Nothing to prove and nothing to lose, I am he who defines and refines himself as a man beyond these walls. This left handed, athletic, romantic man birthed in the Chicano Blood, I show love on the intellectual side, giving foundation to the awkward minds who see and view in color blind.

Hands crafted to chef a meal of international delicacies while the soul and heart introduce humorous pleasantries. I give way to...

Title: Tear Drops

If a tear rolls down my face
They say gangsters don’t cry
Gangsters get shot
And some gangsters die
If a tear rolls down my face
An eye for an eye
Kill them to they die
Pain in my life
If a tear rolls down my face
When I eat I survive
Scheme and I lie
Reach for the nine
If a tear rolls down my face
I want the whole...

I Come From a Long Line of…

I come from a long line of men who fail to appreciate beautiful, smart, good women…

I come from a long line of men who never taught me to be grateful for anything.

I come from a long line of men that never took time to teach me how to be a loving, patient husband to a gracious woman. I come from a long line of men who were selfish and stubborn. I come from a long line of...

A devilish grin after a beautiful sin is like a slice of heaven from this angel's food cake.
Should I fail to comprehend the contradictions and men as materialistic visions materialize things done in vain.
Things ain't the same, you hear it on both sides of your brain; the battle of good and evil standing firm on your left and right shoulder.
But these are not demonic and angelic figures delivering alternative...

A Mysterious Being

You are beautiful, intelligent, mysterious

and when I see your face,

hear your voice the Unicorn comes to mind.

A beautiful beast that holds countless possibilities,

beckoning me to come explore the wonders

of your being.

The Intelligence that’s seen in your eyes

washes me away in a sea of bliss.

Only to laying me upon the beach of your...

“A Young Marine”

I was a kid sent to war.
Distorted by what they reported.
Death lurked beneath the sand.
Behind a scope.
And even in those we we’re there to give hope.
We made it home or so it seemed.
But death was here to redeem.
Now my friends lay on a table,
With only whiskey to keep me stable.
Pushed my family away and gave into the sway

It’s been an amazing journey to this place where we are to be the lovers that we’ve become. This kind of love takes time. We started out, like so many do, with nothing but dreams in our pockets and stars in our eyes and oh, how we enjoyed the adventure!

But along the way, we met our share of obstacles, sometimes we got tripped up, and life took us on a detour or two. But with every step, we stayed in...

Love Has Not

Love has no color ~
Than its empowering golden hue
A kaleidoscope of glittering memories
Enchanting, reflective even askew…

Love has no sight ~
Only inbred trust as vision
A compelling element of indulgence
Especially in times of indecision…

Love has no sound ~
But a thunderous roar in its debut
An orchestra of pious assemblies...

Take your time with love

It’s complicated, hard, crazy, and chaotic.

It can destroy you or transform you.

It can bind you or set you free.


Fairytales can happen, but nightmares still exist

Price charming could be waiting

So don’t throw down the list


Love is to be valued, cherished,

And held above anything else.

But, don’t let love lose...

"If Only I Could Now Go Back"

Look back with me a moment my sister,
as I do whenever I feel blue.
I recall the day you came home,
I couldn't wait to be the best big brother to you.

I swore I'd hold you all day,
spoil you by never putting you down.
And if I heard you cry,
I'd come running so fast my feet would never touch ground.

When you're hungry...

Lost in the dark I trip over bones
I follow the shadows and I talk to the stones
The chatter of teeth and the rustle of leaves
The wind whispers Annabelle Leah
glawing graceful She appears to me
A fey Queen named Annabelle Leah
Come Wonderer Come and See
She held out her arms My Annabelle Leah
The water is warm and the kisses are free
Come to me your Annabelle Leah

Native Nomad
By Daniel Thomas

Great Spirit shed light on my path second generation orphan, native nomad. Just a young man cub, raised without a mother’s love. The underdog nobody wanted to see win. Born in sin? No. But I walk a black road. Fugitive, no home on my homeland. Live so fast, they buried me alive. Nationwide, I was made to fight, before I knew what I was fighting for. Going back to my roots on the Powwow...

I call out in despair, the echo keeps replying
“Is anybody there?” The sounds keep multiplying
Because the world just keeps on spinnin’, incessant as my mind,
I might just be invisible, but I’m not hard to find
Perhaps a 4 leaf clover, a diamond underground
So many broken promises and love is not found
This story is my own, very true indeed

The Storm

I sit back and watch the rain fall slowly as I write these words.
I hear the undeniable destruction as the thunder hits its victim.
I’ve decided against being a victim so I look for a place to hide,
Only to find there’s nowhere to hide.
I must now use my mind to circumvent the destruction.
While thinking of a plan, the lightning attempts to distract me.
But I instead helps...

Lotus Flower Bomb

Lotus flower of the freshest petals,
Blooming in the ambience of heavens
Hidden in esoteric meaning beyond
The most precious special….
Lotus flower….
The very meaning to adorn in exquisite
Lotus flower, I can’t guess your
It’s like Jasmin sweet scented cinnamon,
Lemon vanilla, exotic, yes yes...

Last night I had the most beautiful dream

It was so real, or so it did seem

I woke up from my slumber and a

visitor appeared

It was you standing there, your eyes filled

with tears

I pulled you close, and whispered, “Baby

don’t cry”

I’ll always love you till the day that I die

The Personality Of The Pen

My daydreams drift into emotivity
That leaves internal scars inconspicuously
For who do I reveal these feelings to
My unspoken words I write them to you
The personality of the pen
Writes and discloses whatever mood that I’m in
I think, feel, then I express
That which does unveil my emptiness
My conceptions are written from line to line

California Living

Palm trees and crystal clear beaches,
Blue skies and cool ocean breezes,
Out here its summer everywhere,
Relax as an oceanic breeze wafts through your hair,
You’re on the west side
Enjoy life and watch the emerald tide,
Out here there are no worries in which to confide,
We have plenty of narley surf to ride,
If this interest you then write me,

"So you want to write a prisoner?"

If you want to bring light,
Where I sit in the dark,
Then do it.

If you think all prisoners are bad,
And you can't find any good,
Then don't do it.

If for you kindness comes fast,
And judgment comes slow,
Then do it.

If you are more concerned with self,
and less concerned with others,
Don't do...

Some things are worth

Fighting for,

Too important to

Just ignore,


Allow someone else

To hold,

Especially one who’s

So cold,

That he could overlook

And mother’s tears,

Then murder what she created

And nurtured for years,

So no longer am I

Shedding yesterday’s tears,

But all the fears

That’s held me back for years...

All is lost though it seems,

Without my compass it’s just dreams.

A wayward sailor, that I am,

With no lighthouse I’m on the lam.


The waves crash over against my hull,

Which forces me to take hold and mull.

I fasten the lines and batten down,

Praying with all my might not to drown.

A strong...

N8V Illuminati  

I’m so symbolic
Broke the 1st rule of fight club
Sacred truths so mystery
I don’t even know it.
Faceless movement

1st N8V on the moon

Admire My Taste Part 1

Here stands the woman of words of fantasies inquisition…She is more than special V.S.O.P. involved with me like a legend and fairy tale where her affection is more than beauty to my pain who is beast. Sledge hammer to my unbreakable, brokenness…from where did you come to illuminate what I couldn’t see in my soul reflection? Are you a special spectrum of shade in an elusive vessel?

All my life I've been different, average Joes scatter

Out my way,

Blasé my own path through the dark, creative spark,

Light my way.

Not a worshipper of money, probably why I couldn’t keep

Her, I'm not trippin’, it’s her loss ‘cause I

Know there’s something deeper.

I held her in my arms, thought she’d always be mine

Even scattered scarlet petals on her bed, not just

~ Love ~

Loving you is the best feeling I ever felt
Your love is like the rain when it pours but I never use or
Need an umbrella because I want to feel every drop of it.
What’s love?…your laugh…your smile…your beauty…your ambition
Your heart…your desire.
Your love is like the sun when it sets
It brightens everything around me,
Your smile glows...

Share My Pain

Yes I did some lines
So I could try to find
How to feel fine, so I hit rewind
I’m crushing down these pills
I’m rollin’ dolla bills
Trying to kill off my feels
But I’m lost in these fields
Of oxycontin trills
The pain is bone deep
Got me sweatin’ through my sheets
Shaking, achin’ like a fiend
I can taste the pain
I can hear the dreams
I can...

A mixture of white and brown, like caramel and white chocolate, dark blonde hair slicked back or buzzed down to a modern fade, reflecting the trends of the times, which of course remain unforgotten, my 5’ 8” build is athletic, bold, masculine, as with work outs on a concrete yard, hard angles and sharp plains.

The background of music and the taste of coffee come just after dawn.  In the afternoon is a bit of origami and the...

Suffering in Silence

I’m suffering in silence
Really, I don’t want to be silent because my mind is plotting violence
In the form of riots against a tyrant called love who seems to have a bias
But instead I suffer in silence.
Because what can I say when every day love is on a vacay from the
Place in my heart that decays from dismay when it’s away
Making me suffer in silence
I feel so stupid...

There comes a time in each of our lives where we have
Experienced what is called, “broken moments”.  It was once
Said, “That without a foe, a person will never know their true
strength”.  From the exiting of the womb, until the grave, every
one of us will experience unfavorable circumstances that will
either strengthen our resolve or utterly destroy us. ...
