A Breeze of Memory

A graveyard of dead trees

Fallen leaves of vast red and orange seas

Squirrels scurry before winter strikes

As children play while others pass on bikes


harmony of the trees an the wind come together and sing

As a bird chirps then stops to clean it's wing

Children shrieking and screaming as they play

Angry armies of cars roar past, then fly away


Memories start of when I was a kid

Only broken away by time an what it did

Sitting still only in question

Of who I am and to what is my impression


I laughed . . . I played here

I was happy unknown of fear

But then reality again breaks memory's connection

Only to be lost again, still unknown of my reflection


Author's Notes/Comments: 

annnd, here you have yet another class assignment that I did way back.



I hate you without reason,
I hate you without cause.
But I love you even more,
You make my heart pause.


Attention feeds my soul,
Your love is my goal.
I just wish that you were here,
With you pressed against my ear.



I’m not being fair,
But do you even care?
Just know that you are missed,
Forgive me for being pissed.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is pre-emptive to be honest, I haven't wronged ayone yet but I'm worried I might.

If it's what you want

If words on a page

and pictures in a frame

are what you want,

then so be it.

but just know that one day those pages will fade

and those glass paned frames will break

as that trophy love you thought you had

slowly disintegrates. 

I may not be a writer 

or photogenic like her

but the love I can give you 

will not deter.

So just remember, 

the next time she writes you a poem, 

or snaps a picture, 

those, unlike my love,

will fade. 


Jealousy is that paralyzing rattle from a snake,

a bumble bee buzzing across your ear,

Crippling like a bullet to the head,

A firm grasp on the neck from the dead,

Bending over backwards in your mind.

Sing me a lullaby.

Pretty as can be
Power is all you can see
Smiling constantly
So, you thought you knew me

Inside I see and feel no beauty
Motivating myself daily to just be
But can anyone see?

Pretty as can be
Power is all you can see
Smiling constantly
So, you thought you knew me

My sadness and depression overflowing
The will not to live continually growing
But all you can see
Is all my glorious beauty

Pretty as can be
Power is all you can see
Smiling constantly
So, you thought you knew me

Fighting off Sticks and stones daily
Drowning hurtful comments constantly
Forced to listen to what people think of me
While I don’t even think of me

Pretty as can be
Power is all you can see
Smiling constantly
So, you thought you knew me

Worth no one’s love
Always alone and way above
Has anyone ever considered that I have had enough?
Life is just far too tough

Pretty as can be
Power is all you can see
So, you thought you knew me

Jealousy killed me

Reckless love

Free Flow

Lost in love
Burned by mistrust
Abused by the muse
I once chose to love

Dark mornings lead to cloudy nights
Hearts bruised by dishonesty
My blood stains the Sheets
Caught up in turmoil
Damn, I can't breathe

Tired and full of rage
Wishing the pain would just go away
Coughing up blood baths
As my soul bleeds hate
Wishing you were dead
Your such a disgrace

No one knows you like i do
Behind closed doors the devil scores
Bashing skulls as adultery sings
As bullshit walks tall like a man
You think your a king
Damn, what a dream

Your nothing,
Just look into the mirror
Those are my scars you see
Those are my tears on your shirt
The sweat that poured out my body
As i fought for my life
And you think your a king
Praising God, thinking your going to heaven
Thats a big laugh if i ever heard one
Because i got your card Nicca

And I am pulling your teeth
Knocking you off your feet
Three to the dome
Four to the chest
In hell is where your body will rest
High off the everglades of life
You started this shit
So I had to fight for my life

Bound in chains the pain still reins
But to you i am no longer a slave
Freed by the nine as i unleashed dem bullets
No longer will i be your victim
No longer will you rape me of my life
Now that im free
Now that we are free
I will show love to our seed

The hour glass has broken
The time will never change
Never go in reverse
So there will be no replay
As life moves with in me
I shall only remember
What i held onto to make me stronger
What gave me the courage
To only forward
Our seed was the only good thing
Living in this reckless marriage

Anaconda Snake

What is so amazing of the Anaconda?
It’s huge and branded as a jumbo danger killer,
The Anaconda stands out as a strong water pillar…

An Anaconda holds his power to spread fear,
An Anaconda is a nuisance, brings out a continuous tear…

Causing trouble and bringing terror around,
Is like its duty, for getting the London pound!

There is an anaconda in each of us,
We become jealous, wicked with an infectious puss!

Sometimes we want to do bad and only bad,
Its human nature that’s very sad!

“We need to rise above our low tendencies”,
As soon as we can,
This powerful slogan has million years ran…..

Life is all about being soft, loving and winning hearts!!
A well lived soul, has billion tears when he departs!!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Let's learn to rise above the snake filled nature, in each of us!! Lower tendencies should streek to higher goals!!

A Colorful Curse

My blood boils green

At the sight of perfection

The sound of euphoria

And the painful feel

Of crushing inferiority.

My eyes ignite

From sparks of emerald envy

Sending a fiery gaze

Toward the flawless one

The destroyer of my ego.

My self esteem is buried

In the worm infested dirt

Beneath the luscious lime fields

That gently kiss her feet

In her personal garden of Eden.

My face turns a sickly jade

At my own weakness

Of being unable to break

The trance I’m under

Of incurable insufferable jealousy.

A life of love

An ocean of lies

Never-ending devotion

And a life at hand,

It does not matter to me what happens to me

My life is not worth living without you at my side

Even throughout the lies even within it all

You could have killed me

And I still would have loved you

Nothing you did was capable of stopping me from loving you

Even after, you went to her arms

Even after you used me to not end up alone

Even after everything

And right now, that continues the same

Sadly, you have set your heart and mind somewhere else

Thus my life should not be lived

Should not be spent waiting for what I desire

Even if it is stupid, my life was only worth something when I was with you

I could come into a room and know I was at least wanted somewhere

I blindedly believed in you

Believed in all that I feel

And somehow

Somehow, I still love you

When I know I should not

So I’ll let you be free like the blood pouring from me
