Make This Easier

Make This Easier

You want to stop loving me
So, to make this easier
I’ll stow away the best of me
And call forth the worst of me
I’ll be the darkest
So, that whenever you close your eyes
Hopefully you won’t be able to see me...

When I'm gone will you really care

When I’m gone will you really care
If it’s said and done will you have a tear to spare
Life is over so fast, yet days go so slow
Why this really is, I think only God can know
So what’s to become of me, or more importantly of you
What do we...

THE HORUS FILES

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
resurrection….
Right before my eyes I see my wing span reach...

Mrs. Edible

Mrs. Edible

A woman is known by the company her mind keeps.
And if you hear what comes out of her heart, goes to a heart.
And when you love yourself like she do, it’s a romance for eternity.
She (spouse) is priority, rapture is what she brings to the...

Lost in the dark I trip over bones

The chatter of teeth and the rustle of leaves
The wind whispers Annabelle Leah

A fey Queen named Annabelle Leah

Take A Chance

Take A Chance

Whimsical whispers like the wind
Tend to dazzle, excite and delight.
Awakening your inner curiosity,
But somehow you continue to fight.
Why not let go of all your inhibitions,
Give in to those feelings and explore?

Life Is A Dream

Life Is A Dream

In this place, negativity is all I see
In this cell, pain is all I can smell
I ask myself, is this me, or am I adrift at sea?
How did I get here? Was it a mistake?
Or simply a cruel twist of fate?

Last night I had the most beautiful...

If Ghetto's Had A Heaven

“If Ghetto’s Had A Heaven”

Of 7, then made somebody a victim by the age of 11,

Focused on doing the time

Focused on doing the time, just not to lose my mind, something about the struggle, is so define, so the love is hard to find, imagine searching and clawing for every nickel and dime, raised in a concrete jungle, all while doing time, so many tears, but unable to cry. I tried time after time,...

Title: Tear Drops

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...

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...

RAIN DROP

“RAIN DROP”

A lonely flower stood in a field, it had lost its will to survive. Not even the birds or the sun and the sky, could keep the flowers sole from dying.  Until one day, on a cloud way up high, the tiny rain drop was passing by.  The rain drop knew...

Sleeping silences and shattered calm

You came into my life, a light in the dark
Brilliantly blazing with enchanting charm
With a fiery inferno you melt my heart

Wherever you are is hearth and home
Where my weary soul is never alone

The Love of the Season Autumn

The Love of the Season Autumn

In the crisp gentle wind of fall
You can see the beautiful brown autumn leaves big and small
Jack-O-Lanterns, bats and candy corn delight the children
But the biggest treat of all lies within them
A big smile across their face...

Someone who can let me know,
