I Come From a Long Line of…

I come from a long line of men who fail to appreciate beautiful, smart, good women…

I come from a long line of men who never taught me to be grateful for anything.

I come from a long line of men that never took time to teach me how to be a loving, patient husband to a gracious woman. I come from a long line of men who were selfish and stubborn. I come from a long line of...

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...

Void of Perfection

I transcend arcane thoughts, as I drown in emotion,
Suffocating in solitude, in a pursuit for devotion.
Concealing commotion, behind a luminous smile,
A tactic to cloak, what’s been there for a while.
A destitution in my life, from the absence of affection,
Reaching out for a friend, in my quest for connection.
In search of direction, seen in my mirrors reflection....

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
I’ll go the farthest
So, that whenever you’re alone
No matter how hard you try
You won’t be able to...

“LilPac My Sweet Soul Desire”

My sweet soul desire, my eyes have finally laid upon you
Praising them just from this sight of you my soul desire
Watering gas of tears has started shooting down my cheeks
From this very moment of sights from my Dear Sweet Soul Desire.
Take Care,

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 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!

Take your time with love

It’s complicated, hard, crazy, and chaotic.

It can destroy you or transform you.

It can bind you or set you free.


Fairytales can happen, but nightmares still exist

Price charming could be waiting

So don’t throw down the list


Love is to be valued, cherished,

And held above anything else.

But, don’t let love lose...

You are the lady of the woods, the mighty Huntress.
With those eyes meant for a bow see me far off.
How long was I watching you?
I am manly and proud and beautiful and terrifying.
You are cold and exacting and distant.
Your eyes, the color of clear summer skies.
My eyes that of the woods: Bark, moss and shadow.
The birds gossip about us.
I see the rain coming in...

“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 person:
What if she doesn’t turn out to be whom I thought she would be,
Instead of easing the pain she increases the hurting.

Lost in the dark I trip over bones
I follow the shadows and I talk to the stones
The chatter of teeth and the rustle of leaves
The wind whispers Annabelle Leah
glawing graceful She appears to me
A fey Queen named Annabelle Leah
Come Wonderer Come and See
She held out her arms My Annabelle Leah
The water is warm and the kisses are free
Come to me your Annabelle Leah

There comes a time in each of our lives where we have
Experienced what is called, “broken moments”.  It was once
Said, “That without a foe, a person will never know their true
strength”.  From the exiting of the womb, until the grave, every
one of us will experience unfavorable circumstances that will
either strengthen our resolve or utterly destroy us. ...

Dreams of Reality?

Last night I had the most beautiful dream
It was so real or so it did seem
I woke up from my slumber and a visitor appeared
It was you standing there, your eyes filled with tears
I pulled you close and whispered, “Baby don’t cry”
“I’ll always love you til the day I die”.
I held you and kissed the tears from your face
The tears dissolved and a smile took their place

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...

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, too;
How was your day...what did you do?

More than this, I want to be free;
to live thru you, vicariously.
While I am...

"Come You Will"

Come you will to bring me joy

Your beautiful blossom consumes my mind

Filled I will be with your truths and moist

Vision you will bring to he who is bling.

Moments I shall gain from the time you give

You will come into crisis and subside what troubles

Relegate the yield and sustain peace.

Oneness is product when who discovers.

Come you will divine to be...

When the time comes,
Will you say hello...
Open your arms,
Embrace me and welcome me home…

Can I sit and rest my feet
Quiet moments let them speak.

You were lost
Drifted away in the currents of the streams…

The hurt and pain I feel runs through me so deep.
That most nights it robs me of my sleep.
I’m all alone in this nightmare of mine.
I had hoped it would end if just given some time.
Never in my life did I figure this side of me I’d see.
I hate this feeling because of what it's doing to me.
I can’t understand what brought about this change
But I...

Admire My Taste Part 1

Here stands the woman of words of fantasies inquisition…She is more than special V.S.O.P. involved with me like a legend and fairy tale where her affection is more than beauty to my pain who is beast. Sledge hammer to my unbreakable, brokenness…from where did you come to illuminate what I couldn’t see in my soul reflection? Are you a special spectrum of shade in an elusive vessel?

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...

All around nothing but white

But everywhere you look, you can see signs of life

A snowman dressed with grandpa’s old clothes

The little children make Frosty with a smiling pose

The joy of life can never be more present

The presence of snow is always its own link

It shows us there is more to life than we idly think


As a blizzard prevents all work and movement

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...

Women need love…men need respect. This is God’s design when both needs are met a virtuous cycle begins; a woman who is loved finds it far easier to show respect, a man who is respected finds it far easier to show love. When those needs are not met, the cycle turns vicious. If a woman doesn’t receive love, she tends to withhold respect, if a man doesn’t receive respect he tends to withhold love…Men must love unconditionally…Women must respect...

The first time I held you,

So small and brand new;

Tears came to my eyes;

And I whispered, “I love you”.


The first words you spoke,

Were music to my ears;

I was the one you ran to,

And got you through your fears.


The love in your eyes,

When you looked up at me;

Made my heart swell with pride,

And almost burst with glee.

“The Genome of MAD”

Mutually assured destruction,
Barrels ot each other’s heads,
Triggers never pulled;
Help in place by threat,
Of, and apocalyptic domino effect.
Finer result, nuclear winter…
Never more to see the sun,
Without Ra, no life can sustain.
Angered are the Gods of Man
The Anunnuki shan’t save us!
From ourselves, though they could,
For they...

I’m waiting for my time to come.
Or waiting until my time is done.
They say there is no way that I can make it home but I plan on
Finding one.
I’m waiting on a letter but it seems like no one wants to write.
So I end up stressing swinging on anyone who wants to fight.
I’m waiting on a money order so I could get a pair of sneaks.
Because these...

If It Was Me

Police are killing innocent people at an alarming rate,

And none of its hearsay, everything is caught on tape.

Even with that overwhelming evidence, free, away they walk,

I pray for the mothers whose sons lie in chalk…

People like myself who have no money,

Get sent straight to prison, but the thing that’s really funny,

Is I ain’t even do sh*t but protect myself from harm....

Songs of Fire

I rise from the ashes to my knees,
From my knees to my feet,
Then I spread my arms out wide
As they metamorphose into wings,
My attention is fueled by the desire
To transcend myself higher and higher
As my vices are consumed by the fire;
The fire of which is my attire
At the peak of my climb I become refined
With a renewal of the spirit and mind

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...
