its seems I just cant get it right

fell in love with what I thought would be my future wife

laid down beneath love and made new life

put aside all stress and prayed to the sky,

clouds and heavens above


just that,

maybe this will be as perfect as it seems…

my mother always preached that the devil was a liar,

not to say he isn’t  but,

I didnt see this coming…

I tried to justify


and clarify things as fast as I can so we could be,



a family…

instead I sit here staring at your words

feelings spewed like blood splatter on a crime scene


reaching out to hurt more than just a feeling

but the pain you have been through because of me…


just doesn’t cut it anymore…


not worth shouting because you’ve heard it so many times before…

its seems I just can’t get it right

fell in love with who I wish to be my wife

laid down beneath love and made new life

put aside all stress and prayed to the sky,

clouds and heavens above…

Crossing the street,

In the midst of the crosswalk

Between traffic, BAM it hits me….

I have never rubbed elbows with the rich and wealthy

Except on an east side train to the village…


Watching Friends marathon

Boxers and socks

Alone in bed

6 glasses of pinto grigio later, BAM it hits me…

Love doesn’t know me,

Loneliness is my only friend and (my) life is empty…


Standing in the midst of a city that never sleeps

Promotes a naked cowboy

But arrests a human Spider-Man showing his talents, scaling its tallest building

Shoots innocent men 40 some odd times

Beats another for rushing to a City Council meeting and BAM it hits me…

For 34 years I’ve lived here

2 failed relationships, three and half years locked away in the mountains and 4 children later

I think its time for a change…


When did it hit you???


like home plate, my heart

was stolen from me. Quick she

ran to the dug-out


flashing a big grin

Victory! she thinks she’s won.

but its only the


top of the ninth and

 I still have one on deck. Next!

Jaw drops, disrespect…. 

Poem notes:

*quick poetic story of a woman trying to play a man who loved her and thought she had the last laugh, but all along he had another on the side… I thought it was great! Funny too!

Com’n man this deserves a hand clap…   

today when i awoke
as usual i brushed my teeth
and glared in the mirror at the reflection it held
at first sight i couldn’t tell the face before me
but as i sat in awe
and wondered where i knew this mans face from
it came to me like a dream
this was a man born to a church
that as years grew on
he felt had abandoned him
a mother who did not know him
sisters that could not understand him
and the streets loved him more then he had respect for
this man i stare at in confusion
was broken
and left out in the cold to freeze
but found a small light that led him to grams of coke
that brought him new clothes and shoes
a home far beyond his dreams
above in the mountains
where he found a friend that embraced him the way he wished his mother did
and from then poetry never left him
and has given him dreams of fame and riches
hopes of one day making it big
open mics, book deals
touching those lost the same as him
and hopefully he then can put his past behind his shadow
where he will no longer have to worry ‘bout those demons
and carnal sins reaching out to bring him back
into the reality he has tried for 27 years to escape…
