THE LAST HOSTILE

THE LAST HOSTILE

I am a problem for bringing savage back and it’s so matter of fact.  Heart as black as the clouds throwing thunder and the court documents say it’s the U.S.  of a versus me.  Guess I’m a one man war party.  But I’m not...

Alive In A Grave

Alive In A Grave

When the casket walls start to cave in kicking my @$$, I start singing out loud bout taking it all back. Heyah! Way Heyah! And it sounds like that. Fighting terrorism goes way back. Since 1492 to be exact. And my ancestors don’t speak English. In the spirit of...

Mine Eyes

Mine Eyes
By Andrew Burke

For years and years I totaled tears
‘Till one day mine eyes dripped dry
‘Twas then I defied my darkest fear
For no longer could I cry

I stood mountain tall!
A sea about my feet
And o’er that...

HAUNTED

HAUNTED

People die,
Beauty fades.
Love changes,
And you will always be alone;

People die, so love them every day.
Beauty fades, so look before it’s gone.
Love changes, but not the love you give.
And if you love, you will never...

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...

The Power of Forgiveness

"The Power of Forgiveness"

As I sat in that courtroom
Awaiting my fate,
My victim looked back
Into a face, she must hate.
When her eyes met mine,
Instead of aversion,
I saw only love,
To the point of immersion.

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 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.

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...

Define Me

When you look at me
And witness my personality,
Tell me,
What do you see?
And please,
Don’t be cliché or superficial;
Try to paint a detailed, fuller picture.
Assign characteristics, but then tell my why.
And if you...

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?

A letter or note from you to me;

A letter or note from you to me;
a friendship that lasts eternally.
I seek to break up the day to day
to express what my heart has to say.

I want to have positive people around;
to share when I'm up or when I am down.
I want to hear all about you...

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...
