The strain of this life
Heavy pulls on the heart that
No longer handles…

I rather give in
Let go this carnal sin

Nothing can repair
The tears embedded within
Hope has been lost here…


Ok so I had a thought today (4/27) and figured I would write a few haikus about a man who has lost hope of LOVE, Life and everything else…

The plan is to write one piece a day, at least I’m gonna try to write 1 a day, for the next 30 days…

I hope you like the idea and effort of this idea. Heres his official introduction:

What does it matter?

A NAME! Love wouldn’t know it!

Nor will u recall…

Bullets have no name…

But every social event

they make appearance…

Whats there to hope for?

Love’s gone, tomorrows’ today

said yesterday’s dead…

This is my story.

Scribbled words of pain and love,

lifes’ adversity…

& ME!


*”She Said, He Said”  the book is coming soon… This piece was written to and about someone, also to continually show my range to the editor, and proof readers I have checking out my work…

 

Her name?
LOVE.
5 foot something.
Thick, luscious.
Eyes like gems.
Voice angelic.
Hair flowing like leaves blown in the wind.
A feeling of bliss when lips – interlock.
Intoxicating sips of love.

Cherishing every moment.

Her being

Revitalized my existence…

 Influential to my becoming…

Sexual exploits exploited when we’re together.

despite her Tough exterior,         

we’re Inseparable friends…

Nothing can come between

what we Amend…

 

Her name?
Beauty.
Songs have been written about her.
Many inspire to be her.
To capture a glimpse, is an honour in itself.
Trophy like.
A best friend.
Ideal wife type.

from beginning to enD,

engaged in A

tug of waR

of the – heart…a push and pulL

 battlE

of fornicatioN

and – lovE

This is dedicated… 

To LOVE. 

To Beauty.

TO HER!!!

For I have finally risen like the phoenix, above heartbreak

Beyond the bullshit of fake hugs and kisses

Intentional darts thrown at my heart to see if I fall to pieces

Happiness, now an actual reality

Despite the occasional bickering back and forth

For her I fought –

back and forth–coming I came,

To stand by her side beneath the stars

Rise up JaMar

Until the sun parts ways with the moon

I remain still…

In LOVE!


**THIS IS TOTALLY NOT A REAL STORY. SOMETHING I CAME UP WITH ON THE FLY TRYING TO MAKE A POETIC STORY OUT OF THE THOUGHT OF TODAY!!!**  

 

Hershey Kisses

Roses, Tulips, Daisies and Petunias

Red hearts,

Pink and white ribbon streamers

Dancing in a cool Tuesday mornings breeze

Balloons,

Bouncing and prancing about

Smiles of joy and love

He surprises her from behind –

a small nibble on the nape of her neck

[she jumps] exhilarated,

Passion impressions written all over as she takes in the beauty of his love

Showered with gifts

Feeling exceptional, wanted, desired… LOVED!

 Like a child she jumps into his arms

Slightly off-balance

Stumbling,

Back against a wall as their lips intertwine, 

and gobs of passion are exchanged…

umh.. Valentine’s Day!

NOTE: I wrote this piece listening to Jay Z classic album ‘Reasonable Doubts’ and this concept/poem was birthed from the song “Regrets”… I hope you like, understand and do not read too far into it either…

I have regrets

Things I’d like to forget

Instead of drowning myself in a bottle of gin

Contemplating this rope round my neck

Memories I wish I wouldn’t remember

Thoughts I didn’t consider happy but painful moments in time

Hours

Minutes

Seconds I wish were obsolete

A dream I wish I never dreamt

That path I hate my mom and absent father for-

Those short breaths of passion they shared…

Giving life to the other me that had to endure this journey of

Hopeless love

Impossible feats of adversity

Fantasies of happiness

Endless falls,

Let downs and broken promises

(LIFE)

“This is the number one rule for your set
In order to survive, gotta learn to live with regrets
On the, rise to the top, many drop, don’t forget
In order to survive, gotta learn to live with regrets
This is the number one rule for your set
In order to survive, gotta learn to live with regrets
And through our travels we get seperated, never forget
In order to survive, gotta learn to live with regrets”

                                                -Jay Z “Regrets” chorus 1

 

I have regrets

Many, which I blame others for

Upon bending knees

Clasped hands

Eyes high into the sky,

As if,

The answers will fall with every raindrop

Covering the tears sliding down my cheek

As if,

The earth will awaken and open its jaws to swallow me whole

The easiest way to abandon the mistakes I’ve made

To no longer exist in a world where I can never be forgiven

And  love is no longer a given

As if,

Judgment has been passed

And this,

My last days!

 

I have regrets.

Some I wish I could forget

That many more, I wish to just let

Roll off my back and go…

Fight  no more, and learn to live with  regrets…

“You used to hold me, told me that I was the best
Anything in this world I want I could possess
All that made me want is all that I could get
In order to survive, gotta learn to live with regrets…”
