Living

Living


On the edge, with a different point of view
The getting, by another, the same as you
What’s up is up, what’s down is down
How a smile is to a frown
It’s black and white
It’s day and night
When two connect
Each other must protect
High 5’s, the virtual kind
Sharing of similar mind
Jabs, coyly given in jest
Air hugs, when hearts are not at its best
Many friends in parts of the world
But one, makes lips sweetly curl
Distance strikes from time to time
Wonders, in reason or rhyme
Mine is not to drift and die
But to live and try
Being alone, does not sadness make?
Accept, to live it with choices made
Some say they get it
Only one, knows it
Whose stride glides in a similar gate
Side by side a virtual soul mate
The missing truly hurts
Hope, sublimely worse
Until united perchance again
To laugh aloud at life’s pain
Time apart can heal
Forge a bond of steel
When two hearts beat as one
Under the same moon and sun
Longing of a face, long not seen
But lit up, on a illuminated screen
How would it end if never met
The thought, painful blooms beget
Pondering over burning canabis
Best leave it as it is
To destiny, come what may is His
In Living, a soul too tired to do this

All Night Long

Surrounded by people no more

Scent of perfume forlorn

Spirits disinfecting

Souls disappearing

Oh how far man has come

Over time counting to a sum

Oblivious, as the end of life looms

Overwhelmed by deaths toxic fumes

Struggling to find the words

Sadness crying and it hurts

Strikes a moment the world is hushed

Starts the first line of a poetic thrush

▶️

Yes, Yes, Yes

Whispered gently, ever so gently

With every touch felt from the vibe of these words. Echoes in time every syllable and rhyme. Trying to keep, rhythm flowing, tugging hair, nails deep, clawing flesh red and bleeding.

▶️

…tugging hair, nails deep, clawing flesh red and bleeding. Lips to lips, hands clutching hands, legs that entwine like the vines that sprout fruit to make wine. Drunk on the very thought, grooving on a buzz, lit afire by the desire to make love all night long

▶️

…make love all night long

A Heart That Bleeds

A Heart That Bleeds


the want is deep in a love where the heart bleeds…

there is no puncture no physical wound
to release the ache
that grows inside
a heart that bleeds

it boils slow, bathed in tears
it flows over pouting lips
taste the bitterness
a heart that bleeds

the tongue licks
saltiness, sorrows bliss
from days that pass to tomorrow
a heart that bleeds

floods inward
without escape
left to decay
a heart that bleeds

broken and shattered
left alone battered
when love hurts
a heart that bleeds

Dream After Dreams

Dream After Dreams


The first time I saw her face I fell
Fell into a feeling that petrified
Petrified, holding me still
Still my heart pounded, the echo swelled
Swelled my head leaving me puzzled
Puzzled by this charge surging through
Through, every nerve now tingling limbs
Limbs, begin to twitch, urging steps
Steps, towards courage in this moment
Moment to speak, to greet, to meet
Meet, but for a second that would hold
Hold for an eternity if I didn’t say
Say, if I may, unless otherwise engaged
Engaged to decline, to dine, if you will
Will, this hearts beating wish to reset
Reset my night, in the company of you
You, caused me to stop
Stop she said, tilting her head, wide eyes
Eyes that dug deep into mine
Mine fell in a gaze, careful to hear
Hear, her voice as I crossed my fingers
Fingers clench, tearing at the seams
Seams of a pillow case, embracing a dream
Dream after dreams, a reoccurring dream

No One Left Out



No One Left Out


Always looking back
Could it be home or just another trap
So many stops along the way
Coast to coast in a flowing sway
Seasons come and go, the hardest
When leaves fall through the air bringing sadness

Watching time go by, think
The wonders missed, so don’t blink
Leaving on a… jet plane
Blazen off a sweet maryjane
City sounds all around
Feel the vibe come up from the ground
Lonely stranger in a new town
Fearless street walker with a frown
Bumming cigarettes and coins
Cons on the prowl, hookers grabbing loins

Patios die when chairs stacked high
No one buys when there’s no 9 to 5
Money breeds from money in hand
Share the wealth from corporate-land
Revive the dignity of humanity
Save the earth from imminent catastrophe
Change the laws to equal all
Stop these wars that yield but a fall

The story of Adam and Eve is just a story
It was meant to portray Eden, a gift of glory
To be a decent human being
Embracing the possibility of being
Man, woman and creatures throughout
Heaven could be earth, if no one left out
