Like a gurgling brook meanders mindlessly

and wild Jasmine intoxicates far and wide

I’ve long felt for that one bucolic meadow

where painters can taste heaven, in the air

and it’s soothing sound is found in colors

that change in constant flow of a marbled sky

and we- create memories of our naked picnics

drenched in wine, laughter and living…love

Bare back

Taking the tail of this shameless mounted ride

I grab me a fist full of hair I shaped like a rein

To pull back and taught an exposed breast cape

Just before I slap again a blushing hand print

So as to heighten the deep plunging feeling

Right as I grab a handful of her moist bare skin

The rush of our fluidity, releases our energy

She gasped, gritted and slumped into a…smile

Truth be told


I want to be the secret whisper

always lingering on the fringes

where your most intimate thoughts

of me toy on the edges of your bit lip

And we live in a scandalous color…of skin

Tides out

In love and or its loss, the heart

bleeds profusely, like a river

while drifting mindlessly alone

There came times we’ve opined

In our own antithetical banter

Love and wisdom fashionably

have their own unique craving

Yet codependent, on one another

But there also comes those times

when a divorce is all that is left

and the incompatible couple split

Yet, it is a love I can’t easily dismiss

and for me, logic has its frail limits

So I decided to follow logic’s lead

in my own mannerism, sort to speak

I rent from myself as loves dissenter

I’m sure at times, I will miss…my mind

Cracked flute

I never felt so connected

she wrote all my heart was missing

Oh, love was calling me at last

Everyday I rushed to her post

feeling my galaxy be stirred

by whatever she wrote, there

Escaping here- line by line

My heart absorbed her inked

concoction of letters- like whispers

akin of a pristine symphony heard

That I could slowly degust

From life’s full wine glass


Until today’s- heart wrenching

When tears read her words

she’d found herself a real lover

I’d been replaced before being chosen

My world was imploding

My vision became tunneled

My heart and soul felt sick

and then, it was as if, this was it

My sight blurred into blackness

in a cruel and slow fall to unconscious

Death of a poets heart by…poisonous ink

In a moon’s dimmed light


She can act and not live a lie

After all the times- he pretended

And left her heart without a good bye

As if she was a dark cloud, passing by


Now she’s been broken

Inside and out, in all the wrong ways

By believing someone foolish

Whenever they spoke loving lies

Someone who didn’t feel her love

Or see the truth in her eyes

So when she holds you close

And you feel her heart beat- alive

Don’t take it to hard when she cold

But- she’s being lonely with you

And I can help but wish I was you- today


If only, I wore your pretty face

If only, my eyes sported your colors

She’d look at me, deeply in my eyes

And like her, I could pretend a bit better

Every time she held my body closer

That maybe, just maybe- some day

She’d stop acting, when she touches me

And stop feeling lonely…in my arms

I can’t promise to fill some ghostly void

someone else has left here for you behind

but then again, that’s not even my intent

and it is my true hope, that you don’t

really need that impossibility- tried or met

when the merging of two people can be

overshadowing to all else…past and present
