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…


Thank God its Friday!

Week is behind me. Today

starts fun; enjoyment.

Weekend’s here, which means party

friends, family, drinks and late night

hanging out,  streaking,

poetry meet-ups and the

things you like to do…

Thank goodness its Friday… time

to punch the clock and rock… (and roll)

Enjoy your weekend…

Threw out all love notes,

Odes to what they could have been

And wrote for herself.

But why, when the love

was so strong? Wrong maybe, but

know it’s only right… 


Should your heart be sleeved

Worn and strutted like peacocks

And never hidden


Ponder this of love,

he maybe wrong nor, I right…

love is standing there 

with open arms. Guard yourself

from harm but never turn from…

                                                 [the possibility of love.]


She could indeed fall for you

You need only catch her stumble


fetch I may, catch

will…but only if her heart

is pure as the ink

she spills…. 

Though what she allows her veins

To pour onto the pages

Is her soul mirrored

Innocence and truth

Differentiate for no

One is all perfect


Perfection no!

Different yes!

‘Cause his spilled words

like milk are his hurt.

But her melodic napkin has soaked it all

And returned him to love…


Sorry but this he swears to be true,

you need just let go

and let him carry you…

*inspired by the song Lately by Tyrese – it just flowed and dedicated to that special someone who better know who she is without me saying it…

lately things have gone

in directions, uncontrolled

emotions array

feelings have been hurt, destroyed

love has seemed to take a backseat

selfishness has took

precedence over what we

built for tomorrow

happily ever after

now just a thought washed away

as we try to find

ourselves, by ourselves

no longer as one

alone disheveled, absent

of what brought us together…


from a distance you

caught hold of my eyes without

even noticing

you hypnotized and kept me

drawn into your ambiance…
