cute love, girl, memory, sun, sweet love,
Swinging, sideways in a striped hammock.
Green, grand,leaves that gracefully grinned.
Hearts, heavily-tanned hands holding our summer
Wishing, wanting, to be...thirteen again.
Graceful,gray gravel beneath our feet at eve.
Mr.Moon's magical mystery, on your face, melodically sweet.
Delicious, delightful, my dazzling summer night's treat!

Dressed in rag with a face of stone,
A smile you would ignore,
Was all she thought she ever was,
Was all she ever saw,
But to me she dressed in sheets of velvet,
She sauntered through the air,
To me she was perfect every way,
Her smile, her eyes, her hair,
She even filled her words with magic,
They danced inside my mind,
Her voice gripped all I ever was,
Her voice had me resigned,
This woman I knew who didn’t know,
Who thought she was the plainest sight,
Still visits my dreams when I’m asleep,
Every single night.

took you from me on a snowy winter day just like that;
you were gone and now although still broken I must live my_

analogy, dark, i love you, imagery, light, love, sun,
The stars fade
the moon yellows,
and sun begins to follow,
loosing all the brilliant power
the one that makes small things cast big shadows.
When there's nothing left but a dark world full of sorrow's sorrows.
You are the light at the end of my tunnel and my flame for you will only burn brighter by the morrow
I pass those old pine trees in the park often,
where we liked to just lay talking- holding hands;
I stood frozen when they lowered your coffin,
now just a sad girl with tangled hair who stands.
You would so love it this year my darling,
everything is quite green and lush and serene;
there is a bird song- oh, it is a starling _
this destiny I could never have foreseen.

humorous, inspiration, inspirational, love,
the moment that changed my life
occurred in late August 1982
when the woman of my dreams
came out of my dreams
walking off a bus
and into my life
a few months later became my wife
first dreamt of her in 1979
back in my high school day
and I knew that some day
I would meet the woman
in my dreams
and I did and that changed my fate
when I met her that date

in my blooming past
grandma was a beautician
who valued my words
Dedicated to the memory of my late paternal grandmother, Mamie Regulus.
bird, care, love,
A wee fellow, sporting an outsize bold-orange chest
The male of the species, ever doing his best
To protect his shyer, pale-chested mate
Back and forth struts Mr. Robin 'cross yard and fence
Twitching and turning, movements taut and tense
A most dutiful look-out, if not so in actual name
~ Noble sentry, setting Mrs. Robin's heart aflame

Your eyes, how they shine, deep into the night
Ah, how they make my desire gently flow
They sing of glories no mortal has seen
My angelic grace, from Heaven you come
I drown within the eyes of an angel
Swimming within the heart of divine love
Such passion comes from the sights that I see
I now lose myself in my Valentine
What wondrous joy is singing in my heart
Harmonize with me my beloved joy
I shall join you in your most precious heart
Your eyes are the beacons of precious love
They shall ever call me over the miles
Your eyes, how they do shine, deep into the night
angel, beauty, black love, sweet love,
You smell like wild rose
And your hair like-
Lavender in an open field
Your dark brown eyes like fire,
Pierce through my soul
Oh, how I am drawn to you
A goddess of captivating splendor!
Your skin, smooth like caramel
Soft like velvet-
The perfect African tone for an amazing African queen!
PS: This is dedicated to all the brown skinned ladies out there. The super amazing African beauties- you are all loved!!
desire, heartbreak, longing, love, lust, passion, youth,
I longed for love, as pure as driven snow
and virgin, before Youth's brief joys succumb;
but, for me, love never transpired; and, although
heartbroken, I persevered to life's autumn.
A lass, princess, or queen have I never
loved, or with ardent nymph have passion-proved
lust's longing fire; thus, deprived for ever,
I disavowed former hopes for my beloved.
Unblemished, pure, artless, and innocent,
without sin, if not virtuous from here to east,
I cast'd aside my youth's salacious bent;
and shunned my lusts as if I were a priest.
Now old and bootless, I've ne'er known desire;
or pierced the flower of a maid on fire.
analogy, angst, cute love, longing, love, trust,
The flowers of winter wither wildly
Petals drooping, dropping, falling down
I pluck these rotting flowers from her ear
Her hair is stems, as are her veins
I smell the scents. Perfume.
Her boots are strewn over the antechamber
Slowly growing mold.
Despite my pleas, she
Would cut the flowers down, always
But they just keep coming, blooming
The moon casts us in a strange glow
The white petals shine, shimmer
My room will be covered in her soon
If I am not careful
anger, anxiety, lost love, love hurts,
Nothing more or less,
Trying to forget the mistakes of long ago
Anxiety showing on my face
Only to forget those mistakes I made of love.
Stupid I had,
And for all that time,
I felt it,
I had it,
And I played with it.
I wish now I've never met her
l never thought of her more than now,
I feel sadness,
Nothing more than sadness,
Sadness engrossed by stupidity,
Shown improperly on my face.
Nothing more or less,
Though I did not realise then,
I thought it was the right decision,
A decision, a bad one, which became the torment of my life.

12th grade, beautiful, deep, girlfriend, i love you, life, love,
Everyone battles a storm in their life
But yours was much bigger than anyone's I've ever seen.
I saw it the first day when I looked in your grey eyes,
It as battling hard with the demons hidden behind.
Darkness consumed me everywhere I turned,
But you shot like a meteor in my dark sky.
I tried to push the meteor away,
But it shone so bright with hope and love.
As the flowers bloom I start a new day with you,
I know even if we ride through the dark,
We will find light in each other.
As we twirl in the majestic piece of our life,
I see our hearts entwined in our hands and
our love filling our eyes because...
You unlocked my LOCKED IN and I am here to unlock yours...

happiness, love, romance, romantic,
I think of you now,
Why I do not know.
You made an impression upon me.
How? I cannot answer.
You just did.
I know now I miss you.
Yearn to be by your side.
I just want you to know this.
That I miss you and think of you.
Some will call it wrong.
We live in a world of rules.
But who can or will rule a human heart?
I think of you right now...

brother, happiness, love, smile,
I wondered all my life
If am destined to be alone
Even cried a few times
On my hopeless fortune
Surely I was an aimless wanderer
Always thinking if I deserve you
But all my doubts got cleared
When my dream came true
The world which had been black and white
Suddenly became colorful
The desert which had seen only cacti
Suddenly there, the flowers bloomed
You are my ray of shine
You are my reason to smile
For God knows it's true
My little brother it's none other than you...
much more than diamond
pearled in a mere reflection
the cat sings for his supper
mirrored she flashes by
fluttered flight, naked thru shadows
shuttering amid a hint of light
he doesn't see the lengths she goes to
closing eyes with open mouths
using only ears to listen
perfect rythmn in a storm held night
entwined and bound to midnight
grasping fingers as the morning sounds
shucking oysters and caressing bodies
their rhapsody is sliding down

12th grade, beauty, emotions, heart, love, passion, peace,
I love you
I love you the way you live me
I live you the way you made it
That's why I say
I can't leave you...
Dreams are mine
Dreams are yours
All in one
We are both each other's bond
That's why I say
I can't leave you...
Hey we give a baby girl
Little she is like me
More she owns you
It is a family
That's why I say
I can't leave you
12+ year's but who's counting
Since i stopped marking the anniversary
Of our final touch and kiss
And no 1 to blame but me
And all my baggage of yesterday
Still waiting to be claimed at lost property
Forget my bravado
My broken record game face
My go to heartbreak tunes
I cry myself to sleep to
It's only me i am fooling
in the end
That time can heal a broken heart
And i don't crave nor miss
Love and all it's benifits
allegory, love, passion, perspective,
Feel me...the heat of a thousand suns!
I am passion among passions
Touch my soul as I burn hot
I'm sheer intensity;
the heat of my love
is much too hot

friend, love, wedding,
A Sonnet for Kasia on her wedding
When I consider women I have known
And I assess the way my love has grown
That this short space of time has changed so much
Where both my hand and yours have been in touch
When I recall a colleague years ago
The seeds of sympathy did in Stuttgart sow
A carnal wish for you I dare express
But in our shared religion must repress
My wife, my child they give such happiness
Please God – like ours- your marriage He will bless
With joy and children and a peaceful home
Where doubt, depression, shame and boredom cannot roam
For Kasia I have felt the fruits of friendship grow so strong
I pray we’ll work together and be true friends for long
home, hope, humanity, love, world,
Ahora que la distancia entre nosotros es necesaria
correr a tus días
rozar hasta el infinito tu cuerpo
y coger tus manos,
sobre todo coger tus manos
para no sentirme sola en este soliloquio repleto de seres imaginarios.
En esta distancia estás tú,
estoy yo, estamos todos
como diminutos seres humanos
a la espera de la primavera,
ahora que hemos polinizado nuestra humanidad más grande.
