I come to you through the night,
Close my eyes and fantasize,
Sense your presence and touch,
Feel my heart speed and rush,
My hands caress your waist,
Hear your breath in amaze,
Captured by the beauty you bare,
Absorbed by your exotic stare,
Your lips suctioning pressure,
Ecstasy increases pleasure,
Spread your long smooth wings,

“Angel & the Devil”

Here’s a dream about an angel, an angel that fell from the sky,
Away from harm’s into my arms, an angel with crystal clear eyez…

I could hardly believe my luck, an angel with beauty unknown, I
Touched her heart, mine fell apart and wondered who left here alone…

An angel as precious at this, so fragile with innocence, a tale to
Tell my hearts for sale surely I’m...

Even at first glance
Who am I to deny, she was beautiful
Her ambiance shined thru
I became attentive to her nature, I listened
She painted a picture, her wisdom
Was the furthest from cold, just experienced
She wore, the jewels from life’s lessons
And how today, her hope is rich soil
Fully fascinated, I smiled, I was humbled
Searched her eyes for joy, she was strong

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...

Only In A Dream

A shattered heart minded in the blink of an eye

Pains of relationships past fade away simply from your presence

A feeling of bliss, true love, and serenity overwhelm me

All things thought to be none existent

Brought to reality by the woman of my dreams

This can only be heaven sent.

Yet in a blink of an eye it all fades away

The pains buried deep within remain...

Mail Call

Darkness and loneliness fill my cell
With pain and fear too great to yell.

I wait for the mailman
To deliver a letter to me
As I wipe away tears
That no one will see.

I pray so sincere
With my head bowed to the heavens above
“Please God! Soon! Send a letter of love”.

I long to gaze upon pages so dear
Written riches on pages

I Meant

I meant to hold you today
I meant to give you the touch
You needed so much,
I meant to give you a hug.
Instead my fears got the best of me and
I walked off with a shrug.
I meant to tell you I love you
I meant to pull you close and
Tell you how much I care.
I meant to show you what you mean to me
I meant my love for you to feel and see.
Instead my fears got the...

Reaching For The Portal

I stand at the barred door,
With its air of vainglory for keeping me imprisoned,
Staring out the windows to the outside world,
Whose glass is like a transparent portal through
Which the other side is another dimension.
Their sun shines through, promising a world of light;
Beckoning me with its contrasting warmth
Compared to this place where I’m...

My heaven is in your arms, their pleasure resides;

My guardian angel is your smile; your laughter protects me.

You hold me in a place of refuge; I am shielded from the unwanted.

Your eyes are the mirrors for my soul, through them, I learn my purpose.

In your presence, I am reminded a fantasy.

Each blink teleports me to reality,

For I am without you.

A moment without your presence is a...

Introverted Sunshine

Introverted sunshine…
Your nighttime dazzles while your stars blind
In reserved fine-ness your highness…
Though your beauty is in every eyes beholder
To those who can look up and define ya…
Under ya starry skies I wander…
Umbrella over me I’m under, it would seem
Mystique like.
More involved through my telescopes locked in...

"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...

Make It Up To You

I've been in jail since you’ve been months old, I know.
And I know you’re angry because your face and voice tell me so.
In your eyes I've only been a disappointment to you and your brothers.
But when you look at it, it’s not just y’all, it’s plenty others.
I haven’t taught you anything that a father should.
But I praise your mother because she’s doing everything she could...

Yesterday is today
Tomorrow is forever
Last week was seven years
My mind is a cloud that sits on the ground
Life is a maze while I'm lost in space
Thoughts spin into sound then bounce around
Then get lost in ether
My Birthday came then went away
The meaning of the number 8
The ghost that haunts me is past
People come but never last
An akward kid picking his...

Above Average

What do you see when you look at me?

Is it just charm, good looks, a great personality?

Do you see another man just like any other?

Just out to get what he can get?

Nothing serious, just a temporary companion?

Is that all you see, when you see me?

Then take this opportunity to get to know me

On a scale of one to ten, I’m a twelve and a half.

I’m unlike the...

An Instant Attraction
Her loveliness,
That's what caught my eye at first glance,
What word can best define my reaction to her appearance?
An intoned phrase from within began to sing,
A chant,
"Beautifully brilliant, remarkable radiant, uniquely ultra,"
A cadence,
A cadence which prompted me to say:...

 “Lost and Found”

A touch of emotion, I can’t see.
Was it your breath?
I want to feel you breathe.
But I’m so far away- still thoughts of you come to me.
Setting me free.
I’m so far away and here I have to stay.
But only in body, can they hold me down.
Now that you’ve found me once again.
My mind is free to come you.
Knowing your...

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...

The following is an affidavit.  It is a written statement of facts pertaining to a particular sequence of events, which provides a narrative with a disjointed and sporadic tale.  When we write, we draw from our own experiences, creating a window to our world with our words.  This concept is illustrated in ‘Strewn along a Highway’, which is an account of my experience with suppressed memories that I found myself reliving in the...

I just found a woman with beauty so rare, I
Promise to show you how much I care.
By giving you the attention you need,
The love and support everyday that you spend with me.
Heaven will be a reality instead of a dream.
In my arms you will always be.
The treasure on earth can put a smile on your face;
Skies will be the limit once I leave this place.
Above every problem...

Fading Memories

The memories of you and the wonderful moments we shared,

Seem to me that they are vanishing,

And draining from our lives,

Like water in a bucket with holes…

The wonderful friendship we had is vivid in my soul,

Did you know that traces of you are found throughout different moments of my life?

You’re still here, but you’re really not,

It’s obvious that the droplets...

Life will nip you on your heels and never charge your for thrills, 
A solution in itself like pills but you can never pay the bills, 
What if there were some trickery like the one that lacks between you and me, 
Good and evil spirits bickering but without the mask now you see, 
If only I didn't feel so alone, maybe I could break to through the stone, 
Bending metal in all shapes like...

Sticks & Stones

Words of deception
Void of self-reflection
Taught a false reality
Why how can this be
This is all I’ve known
Blind leading the blind
So I had to find out on my own
Like a chemical or a poison
False realities and hypocrisy
Sifting through it all
With my eyes wide open
A closed mouth don’t get feed
So that’s why I started asking...

Chasing Love

The thought of falling in love again
Has kept my heart from aching
And though it’s worn upon my sleeve
It has no room for breaking
But nothing is ever set in stone
There are risks with every start
And if that’s what it takes to find the one
I’ll let them tear me apart
And every time I’m put back together
I’m left with the Q, what for?
Until sooner...

Dance Me Outside

She was arrayed in purple and scarlet. With hair black as choke cherries, her eyes the brightest obsidian beneath dark lashes. Hips don’t lie and I marveled with great amazement. Never have I envisioned a more carnal enchantress of an Isis or Cleopatra, Queen of the Damned, perfumed in Prada, knowing she was trouble. 180 proof, her cup was mixed double. “Pretty Little Thing, Owl Dance with Me”. She said, “Would you...

In The Echos Of Silent Confinement

I wonder…

Does crystallized carbon feel the pressure that

transforms it into diamonds?

Does gold cry out as heat purifies it by refinement?

You can hear the whines and whistles of a machine

when its gears are out of alignment;

But can you hear my screams of pain from sitting in

this hell-cell as it echoes in my silence?

Look closely, do...

A mere envelope, fragile but equipped.

Powerful as a rocket ship.

Capable as keys and sledgehammers.

Mightier than a fist.

Unlocking doors,

Crumbling walls,

Boundaries cease to exist.

Connect people.

Linking worlds.

Connecting souls.

Possibilities unfurl.


Mere words,...

Convoluted Conservatorship (Dissemblers)

Intolerant exclusionists, chauvinists, and pliable palliating pseudo humanitarians masquerading as heroic court appointed conservators to/for we the indigent, mentally impaired, incompetent and/or the poor…

I looked in the mirror and who did I see?
The fading reflection of the woman I used to be.
A past cannot change, and I don’t think I would.
By making peace with the past, I’ll remember where I once stood.
Through hard times and valleys, abuse and betrayal,
Satan tried to steal the wind from my sail.
My past is behind me and there it will stay,
But I carry the lessons forward each day.

I look...

These eyes have seen the worst of life and a little of the best. I’ll always be who I am.
These eyes have seen gang wars that ended with people dying in the street, for what reason we’d taken another man’s life.
These eyes have seen broken homes and shattered dreams due to habitual drug use. Mom or Dad getting high is not an excuse.
These eyes have seen prison cells from the inside looking out, vowing never to return, but...
