Black hair
Black eyes
Her stare gets you high
Black dress
Black shoes
They dance as she moves
Black look
Black night
Fire will ignite
Black smile
Black heart
She’ll tear you apart
Black song
Black paint
Her cello feints
Black lust
Black desire
a want’n fire
Black beauty
Black Rose
Strikes a pose

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

Come Dance With Me

Come Dance With Me


How bittersweet the journey has, travelled long, highs, lows
Lured by dimpled smiles, dreamy, steamy, sexy eyes
Fell in love a thousand times, every one hit a beat in rhymes
Held captive to a broken heart, fades to a hardened scar…

Come dance with me, soothe our souls
Could you, would you, find the time to roll
Blaze the herb of peace and tranquility
Take a chance on a night filled sensuality
Come dance with me, flesh to flesh
Feel the heat, warm our skin flush
Side to side, swaying with the breeze
All alone, no one watching, now breathe
Come dance with me, open wide
Make every step a silky glide
Taste what we feel, touch back every touch
A lifetime flashed, make every second count
Come dance with me, to the very end
Lay down slow from a spinning pirouette
Beautiful swan drunk and charmed
Faerie tale dreams in a princes’ arms

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

Sinister Serial Tale

Sinister Serial Tale


Darkness comes, the sins of a man swells
A beast grunts with a famine where it dwells
Passion is made by his own demon spells

To cast a blood red dagger
Used to slash and murder
In boiling rage of fervour

Sickly state of mind breathes stale
Air filling lungs poisoned by venom ale
A Jekyll and Hydes, Sinister Serial Tale

A beastly soul no doubt, they obsess
The elixir drunk from vile ingests
A tormented soul, nonetheless

Victims sought by pale light of moon
Sheathed by fog in streets they swoon
Hear an eerie song without a tune

Screams the victim from first sight
A ghastly vision hidden from light
Final breath expelled on a murderous night

Quenched the hunger in hollow belly
Wipes the blood, stains like jelly
Hyde becomes Jekyll quietly

Carries will and want to no ends
This weeping flow of blood blends
Hardened then softens as it mends

Cocks crow the dawn of a new days number
Awakens those from peaceful slumber
Death discovered in screams of thunder
