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…

The Phoenix Files Continued

The Phoenix Files Continued

Today…I burned my old flame
In passing…

I was on my way up and she
Was on her way…
In that, I could give two broken
Celibacy vows and honeymoons
Though I doubt a gift to give would
Be...

Know me.
How could you? I’m only the same
Difference you thought was familiar
While thinking comes from not knowing.

From State To State

From State To State

Change your mental state
And try to elevate
Reach another and try to educate
Slow down, sit quietly and meditate
So the distractions you can eliminate
While rising to a higher state
Some may say, “This aint real...

Sleeping silences and shattered calm

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
A twilight...

He Who Snoozes Gets No Muses

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...

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...

Freedom

“Freedom”

When the skies are blue
The flowers will grow
The Earth turns and with it
You are my life to show
Forever free, you’re my heart to be sewn
From the raging waters, to the calming seas
I can stand by your side and...

 "IF I COULD BE"

 "IF I COULD BE"

If I could be anything
or anywhere
I'd be the wind
I could blow my kisses at you every day
so I could twirl my arms around you.
And I could run my fingers through your hair.
I would bring the rain for you...

Feelings

“Feelings”

How does it feel to be isolated
And deprived of life’s bare essentials?
Enduring pain that exceeds emotions
And is far beyond mental.
To most, these feelings are exotic
And may never be comprehended

Equal Mind…

Equal Mind…

I’m just a simple man…
A simple man in search of his equal
An equal mind that understands, one who’s virtuous
To find her, I strive for perfection
The honesty of a real man
So many years I’ve searched along...

Utopia

“Utopia”

I come to you through the night,

OFTEN

OFTEN

Often,
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.
Often,
I raise my head high toward the sky,
Despite the weight of my fate, or the slop on my...

Heart of a Man, Soul of a Woman

“Heart of a Man, Soul of a Woman”

You say you want to look into my heart,
I want to look into your Soul.
Both of us have our secrets hidden in closets to which the door is always closed.
Admittedly so, I’m afraid to open myself up to another...

 "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....

Hope was no longer in existence.
Hope, I so admittedly resisted.
Hope, I never expected to find.
Hope, I left so very far behind.
Hope, with all its godforsaken lies.
Hope, a part of me inside always cries.
Hope fills my being with her...

Your essence more vivid then painted

The weirdest things happen in here
Unclear and hard to clear the air
Seems like there’s no one to care

And brings to my eye a tear

And you will find shade, only in reliance…
For I am a caged song bird
Whose face drowns in torrents, but yet I sing!
Perched on my swing,
I flap and flutter in temperance
My bandaged wings,...
