Inmate Poetry

Winter wounds plummet still
To the depths of the beating clock.
Longer hours forever fill
The longing in an empty heart.

Winter winds plummet still
Through the hours of moonless dark
In numbing haze and cells they fill
With remorseful cries and forget-me-nots.

Winter ice is left to chill
The veins that lack the warmth
Of friends and lovers and once free...

I want to be there when you need me.

I want to hug you when you’re sad.

I want to be the person you come to, even when you’re mad.

No matter what I'll always listen and give you nothing but love.

I want to be your king and you my queen, living life madly in love.

~ Change ~

What is change?? I ask myself…
Is it just something different I show from my past actions?
Or, is it the difference I notice truly in myself while
Having self-control over all the worldly satisfactions?
The second option is more fulfilling to me.
As I feel it’s the thing that will keep and set me free.
Free not only from this physical incarceration,
But mentally as well.

Until you been arrested and spent endless days in jail, and walked a 1000 miles without leaving your cell.

Until you’ve lost your family and you’re utterly alone and you tried to seek comfort, to find out it was left at home.

Until you face the judge and entered your guilty plea, and heard them screw up words you won’t be free.

Until your days turn to months and months turn into years and you’ve stayed awake at night...

What’s Love?

Love is: the caring & sharing of all aspects of the total beings of friends, soul-mates or lovers!

Love is: at its utmost in fulfillment when the inclusion of the bodies, minds, souls and spirits are active with the general expressions of the friends, soul-mates, or lovers! It’s no greater measure of enjoyment, appreciation, and balance within the friendship! Or relationship!

Love is:...

He Who Snoozes Gets No Muses

What I write now is no game, no ruse
Thanks to this website I have found my muse.
With her on the grass I go sans shoes;
She’s on my mind when I’m awake, when I snooze.
A man must have something for which he can live,
Especially here in the land of the shiv,
Where people have evil as their heart’s motive,
Where few have the kindness or...

Who are they to judge the mind I'm
The ashes of dust we call the stars
There's a mental phantom choosing
Something of illusion professing
These illusions fix the stranger in
With the mind's eye on anthropomorphic
What impressions did the mind first

Right before my eyes I observe the sands
of time sift through the hour glass….And yet
the horizon is unchanged….
Life slowly fading from my father quickening his
Right before my eyes I see my wing span reach
in two directions aiming to span this world,
I yearn to embrace my mother fully, her wisdom
so inviting and mighty…..
Right before...

Gone But I hope I’m Not Forgotten

Here today but as the wind blows I sway but neither here or there
I’m planted in drab shades of grey, from black I fade, I’m gone…
Hope I am still here and present in the minds of some, though the majority of them
Deaf or dumb or maybe just mindless ones in a zone of timeless webs of thought
Silkly spun.

Hope I am not forgotten…...

Just My Thoughts

These is just my thoughts as I sit here in this four cornered room.
Sentenced to a lifetime of hell in this penitentiary cell
Inflicted by all the pain I’ve caused, by the mistakes I’ve made and all the wrongs I’ve done.
“Like I said, these is just my thoughts.”
I’ve shed so many tears over the years and conquered all my penitentiary fears....

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,

I find myself wishing for a friendly speck of hope;
Someone who can let me know,
That my heart is alive and well like a stethoscope.
I raise my head high toward the sky,
Despite the weight of my fate, or the slop on my plate.

I march forward toward another day,
As time passes by, and I search for words to pray.

The heart of a lion;...

They claim I’m insane,
I’m psycho,
That I can’t control my inner cycles.
That my mind’s fickle
That somehow I laugh when it don’t tickle
That I’m so broke
I feel rich with a nickel.
That if the worlds collided in the middle
I’m the pickle
They claim
They hope
My ways don’t trickle
to the next kid. That if indeed I tripped...

A CARE FREE SOUL: Is responsible,
Not committed to anyone or worthy cause.
It has to be expressed lacking a serious view of life!

And displays an callous view of others!

A IGNORANT SOUL: Don’t know,
Or won’t turn on the light switch of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom,
To begin the learning process!

A Look Within

Patience and persistence is detrimental
to one’s existence, whether you’re
living good or going through a tough
transition.  Life is hard, problematic, and truly
vicious, most fight through the tension by
conforming to some type of religion.  It really
doesn’t matter if you’re Muslim, Catholic, or
Christian, without an understanding and faith

Believe In You

These are lyrics from a country song I’ve written. I hope that it inspires you to surmount any obstacle you might encounter. Belief in yourself and your higher power is the key. Whether it be God, Allah, Buddha or the devil – just believe! Remember: family and friends believe in you; children need and are counting on you – whether it be your kids, or kids of family and friends. Be strong for them...

 “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...

So Many Lies!!!

My entire life I’ve been (lied) to and I don’t anticipate anytime soon I’ll be told the truth…(Who can I trust) when my family is collaborating with the adversary for my demise…(So Many Lies!!!). Prison has morphed me into a cynic…Who can I trust when the Majority of clergy, uniform of law/politicians are hypocrites…It’s a fact that white collar crimes/fraud is...

On a Sunday morning similar to today. I cried for the first time.
In a way words could never begin to explain.
Because I realized I knew more of you that day than I began with.
Watching you as the tears started to escape your eyes.
Putting my lips to your tears while holding your head within my palms.
Kissing you, because you needed me to.
Tasting your essence on my tongue, finding...

“Ode To The Ex”

So I’m out with some friends, when I see you again
But you’re not by yourself, you’re with someone else
A cowboy hat and a white “V” tee, but I don’t like the way he looked at me
It might be the whiskey, it might be the beer, it might be his ass if he comes over here.
He follows you as you walk through the crowd, when you spot me and you...

“My Final Hours Without You”

Damn, World, can you believe that we have at last made it to this state of afterwards and that these are my final hours without you?

In a few hours from here, there will be no more sentimental eye-water cascading down the side of my face as it crashes into my pillow like the rising surf onto a dark and lonesome beach, while I stare a million miles into the ceiling beholding you,...

Fly Together

Baby don’t you worry
Every thing will be alright
Jus hold tight by my side
Together we’ll fly high
Above the mountain skies
Over oceans and around the world a thousand times –

Baby don’t you worry
Every thing will be alright
Jus hold tight by my side
Together we’ll fly high
Above the mountain skies
Over oceans and around the world a...

I am looking for someone to chit chat

Who shares from laughs and cries

Someone who will never play get back

& to walk this path with side by side

A guide at times, friend and companion till the end

Someone who will speak their mind

But isn’t demanding & can somewhat bend

Someone to lend a shoulder when needed

And kisses and hugs galore

Someone to believe in who...

“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

What sensation to be this amazing
I’m collecting many praises
From all these different faces
Tell’em who’s the greatest of’em all
Yea I took some falls
Might’ve stumbled in the halls
But I climbed every wall
While walking every bridge
Just trying to get my glimpse
Of what greatness is
So I hop every fence
In my search for evidence
That greatness still...

The Catch of My Dreams

In my dreams I kiss her on the lips and hold her in my arms. She would dare to call me a thief by the way I steal her heart. If I could whisper in here ear, I’d say always love and never fear. If I could stare into her eyes while holding both her hands I would open up my heart and know she understands. If she were to shed her diamond tears, I would wipe them from here eyes. Though dreams bring us together, a...

                         Lost and Found

Lost in my seclusion, embarrassed and ashamed;

I have realized the truth; It’s myself I have to blame!


A desperate cry for help, to our Lord up above;

Knowing of His greatness, longing for His love!


No need to try to...

Though I never say it.
You're the most important person in my life.

You're also the most difficult, frustrating woman I've ever known;
And in these moments;
You're the only one I can talk to from the heart,
Who cares enough to try and understand me.
When I had lost sight of myself.

Seeing me for myself,
Listening to my thoughts...

A Token of Love

Your personality is so welcoming and soothing.  Your smile so contagious.  It’s so warm and inviting like a hot fire on a winter night, pulling me in closer…  Holding you in my arms feels like a welcome home.  I feel safe.  As if nothing in this world can go wrong…  At this very moment, time stands still.  Your love transports me to another dimension....

In Search of Love

I don’t love some of you, I love all of you…
Your smile, the twinkle in your eyes, the way you
Walk, beautiful the sound of your voice when
You talk…
Love will overlook any flaw that you may see, because in my eyes
I’ve got the woman, my Queen.  Someone with...
