Breakup of Success

Abandoned and afraid
Scared to death I fade
Exhausted and dejected
Anxiety to be expected

.........................................

Only you know what you’ve done
My heart strings toyed for fun
Convinced you’re worth the fight
I went sleepless night after night

.........................................

Lying to my face
I thought you needed space
****, I was wrong
With him now you’re strong

.........................................

Your decision to leave
But you led me to believe
With my heart full of affection
I believed in a re-connection

.........................................

I was too naive
Blind, she won’t deceive?
But now I see the clues
Just a firework with no fuse

.........................................

Bawling for days
Alone with God I praised
A chance to be redeemed
This is what I always dreamed

.........................................

Slowly I found the sun
Finally, it begun!
A path to become a man
God laid out my plan

.........................................

Engineered to perfection
I detached no more connection
Freedom long at last
Happiness unsurpassed

.........................................

I jostled for position
Ignited with ambition
Friends, family and new dates
My single life awaits

.........................................

A 180 degree transition
Now I’m on a mission
Jubilant life grows on
New beginning, I’m a pawn

.........................................

The spring of the upswing
Soon I’ll be a king
Bitterness in the past
Surprised by this contrast

.........................................

I rose up from the dust
Like a bomb I was combust 
The fire burned inside
Leaping I found my stride 

.........................................

This poem a rendition 
Interpret with conviction
For I have found the way
Forever I will stay

 

Feelings of inexplicable change

Emotions change..

From the yearning hunger of passion's lust

To the deafening crack of ferocious thunder 

The silent act of collecting dust 

The pain of hearts once cleft asunder

"Alas! No longer!

Must I endure such wonders and conundra?

FRAMES OF REDEMPTION

 

You bring out the colors in my world

Like the perfect frame

On a beautiful painting

 

The blues are so deep

The reds so alive

You make colors emerge

That could never be seen before

 

Fragrant like a melody

Soft like a tapestry

Woven together by hope

 

Rejected for so long

Yet unabated you flow

Through the crevices in my heart

Redeeming a broken girl

Moving past the graven walls

Built to protect her

From the very love

That would make her free

 

Like water carving beauty into rock

Gently smoothing the surface

Uncovering soothing layers of calm

Hidden beneath roughly hewn stone

 

Through rhythmic currents of tenderness

And the unceasing tide of understanding

You reveal me

And for the first time in my life 

I am not afraid

A Fever

Folder: 
Voodoo

Brilliant warm reds

caress the darkening sky

A fever pitch of

colored emotion

I am not at all

at peace

Pieces come un glu ed

with blue blurred

lines and a hopscotch

of memories


Spinning and spinning

Eyes upward, heart heartward, feet floating

 

I can swim but sometimes drowning scares

the hell out of me

Inside. I stay there often; too often.

Too often, time is reduced to

tentative and fleeting moments.

Brilliant warm reds

caress the darkening sky

A fevered pitch of

colored emotion

I am not at all at peace

Pieces come un glu ed

Though, sometimes-

the glow of sunshine

defrosts my thoughts

and devastates my

structured palace

The walls, they tumble down

And, in the span of two small breaths

I step outside

to not just watch

but to become.

Two small breaths

-Laughter

Two small breaths

-Joy

Two small breaths

-Surrender

Two small breaths

-Drowning


Spinning and spinning

Eyes upward, heart heaving, feet frantic

 

The heavy drum of heartache

beats beats beats

I can swim

but only

if I stay inside

Only, inside.

The Sun Revolves

baby, look around you, i built this world for you.

don't listen to those scientifc fools.

the sun revolves around you.

 

the blue sky, these trees, and the birds singing are all here for you.

no worries or fears my dear,

because the sun revolves around you.

 

the stars are infinite with a light that never ends.

all the world smiles because of the same light shining from your eyes.

the moon reflects upon your face no darkness can stop the force of your happiness.

no stress or frowns, my sweet child, can ever bring you down,

because the sun revolves around you.

Know-It-All

He who knows it all

 

Truly knows nothing.

 

 

My father,

 

A wise, man of honor,

 

He always told us

 

That the reason we were blessed

 

To live in America,

 

Is because the higher brother

 

Was always looking down on us,

 

And watching over big brother

 

As big brother fell hardest

 

During times of egoism.

 

*

 

I guess that's why 

 

I believe 911 was staged.

 

*

 

It was,

 

Staged.

America

Dove Love

I will climb up your mountain and wait…for your arrival.

As I see your cloud approaching I will greet you with a smile.

The oceans will rise, to meet with your feet.

Your integrity and beauty can easily be seen.

And you offer your hand…and I accept,

With no hesitation…no I’m not fakin’...

My legs won’t stop shakin’!

We’ll light the sky on fire.

And we’ll ride every shooting star.

As the sun melts, fire begins to crash.

But no worries! No worries!!

Because

You

Love

Ash.

. . .

Love will leave us blind.

But these doves will keep on dancing, on the sands of time.

Love will leave us blind.

But these doves will keep on singing, through the test of time…
