An arrogant expletive in the middle

Molded and sculpted from above

A name of excellence and spectacularity

One compelling man rising

from his own two hands and confidence

A mission of accomplishments

Ripping teeth from a lion

Wrestling with inward demons

Battling with clever and wit

Flowing with wide intellect

Dashing sense of humor

Standing twenty feet tall

Conquering all small defeats

to become larger than a movie

Ladies and Gentleman

Children of all ages

Wear belief like a trench coat

Never take it off

Surrounded by the shrapnel

Six thousand reasons to fade

A service in your polite eyes

Ungrateful and dissatisfied

Watch me flip in rectangles for you

Continuing to give the minimum

Throwing me up against the brick

wall like a domino

As you never give me an inch

Counting the years one by one

Year 15 is the most critical one

Please read it again

I am just a provider and a dollar sign

Prove to me differently

She scribbled about instigators, wolves, and faceless clowns

She scribbled about shockwaves, blooming flowers and pieces of the heart

She scribbled about unfounded wisdom and the disciples

She scribbled about thick tension and the absent of the light

She scribbled about twirling magic and the dust that never settled

She scribbled about hidden fears and white knuckled prayers

She scribbled about disappointing laughter and cynicism

She scribbled about hopelessness and one night stands

She scribbled about trees of money and sand on the beach

She scribbled about endless dreams and stood dead center of a cold nightmare


Check out my books!

Possessed and obsessed of the clack

High pitched sound ringing

Creaking of the board on the 5th step

Porcelain chimes hanging on the porch

Three year old stuffed baby doll

Underneath the empty crib

Desolation is a sore pimple waiting

Luggage sitting in the run down van

Nervousness stains on her cheeks

Courage turns the key in the ignition

Straying from a house of wreckage

Abandoning abuse from a tiny man


Check out my books!

In the kiss of jinx

Strapped in contamination

Afflictions slip and slide

Sorrow is a ten foot stain

In the crunch and the clutch

Trapped as a canker sore

Recognition of swollen stitches

Corroding and deteriorating

Reversed in singing anguish

Fuming in hazardous dialogue

Attached to a poison downfall

One immense spectacle

Enigmatic magnet

Close up extravaganza

Delightfully hypnotic

Appealing to the hungry

Stretched out imagination

Enthralling to the majority

Consumed like a narcotic

Curved in the mind

Swirling and twirling

Dumbfounded by the crowd

Pleading to want more

Would you like to watch?

I could easily fall

for the moon in your twinkling eyes

I could easily fall

for your precious skin

I could easily fall

for your soothing heavenly voice

I could easily fall

for the stars above your head

I could easily fall

for your gentle and warm touch

I could easily fall

for the sweetness on your lips

I could easily fall

for the world held in your palm

I could easily fall

for your charm and wit

I could easily fall

for your enticing sigh

I could easily fall

into your delicate universe

I didn’t mean to fall for your
magnificent intellect and brilliant eyes

I didn’t mean to fall for your
stunning curves and accent

I didn’t mean to fall for your
innocent laugh and magnetic charm

I didn’t mean to fall for your
echoing fortress and wide skies

I didn’t mean to fall for your
lips of ecstasy and golden tongue

I didn’t mean to fall for your
luscious skin and blissful scent

I didn’t mean to fall for your
beloved moon and drops of silver

I didn’t mean to fall for your
desirous flame and solid wick

I didn’t mean to fall for your
intoxicating personality

still we have no control over destiny
and luck is not the same as fate.
Reflections blending through a window
lovers and strangers, the cruelest fate.
My heart is a bird trailing its shadow
Its course charted and true</
I never meant to fall,
but I’ve fallen like the night for you.

This was fun to collaborate with her!

She begged for an unchained massacre

She begged for flickering lightning

Unable to see a perfect mystique

She begged for a push and a pull

She begged for undying love

Unable to see a perfect mystique

She begged for an overwhelming urge

She begged for unsettling nerves

Unable to see a perfect mystique

She begged for a screaming picture frame

She begged for a prey and a predator

Unable to see a perfect mystique

She begged for a glass shattering into pieces

She begged for a world to never end

Unable to see a perfect mystique

that eventually comes to a halt

Revved up from her education

Admiring the inward bookworm

Dressed up in articulate clothing

Drawn to her stimulating vocabulary

Browsing through endless books

Gazing at her from seconds to minutes

Trying to find the gumption within

Clearing the lump in my throat

Tossing the words in the vault

“Can I check out this book?”

Just to see her radiant face

From bulldozing politics to

southern recipes

words glide

From the center of art history

to eye opening philosophy

words fly

From the core of love to

carburetors and steering wheels

words run

From the backbone of religion to

Roman orgies

words soar

From ancient reptiles to the

evolution of medicine

words are accented

From inward passions to the

hatred of war

words are like light

From the corner of your fears to

the offensive jokes

words scatter

Our universe is open for discussion

A staggering entanglement of vibes

Simmering irritations and agitations

Tormented in senseless pleasure

A slap to bleach white skin

Backhanded foul mouth lingering

A frustrated sting of rug burns

Hand wrapped around her throat

In and out of consciousness

Slurping on venom inside the drain

of a disastrous nightmare

Gnawing on bits of ecstasy

Biting on gigantic pills of melancholy

Swallowing liquids of chaos

Constantly humming a tune of exasperation

Watching a rerun of blackouts

Hostility and seduction is potent

Scraping the bottom of grudges

Tormenting all of your bitter cliches

Scratching the barriers between

our thin and blotchy scars

Sipping on our lethal poison

exchanging sour conversations

Recognizing this tumultuous web

Closing these critical and shaken eyes

Seeing the haze in the back of my skull

She let out a crying whisper

She was terrified of the light

Waiting for him to answer

She ignored all the colors

She fell into the corner

Waiting for him to answer

She slept with the stranger

She hid from anyone close

Waiting for him to answer

She stared into alienation

She walked away from the signs

Waiting for him to answer

She ran from the shackles

She stood in the crossroads

Waiting for him to answer

She sat in the white sand

She twisted in her journey

Waiting for him to answer

She hobbled around midnight

She anticipated change of direction

Answers were always there

If we could ever make love

She would get all of my attention.

I could ensure rhythm, melody, and harmony

Our world would contain passion and respect

I don’t lust for you, I adore you

We would melt in the unfounded fire

The wind that surrounds us seems to have no direction

You can step your foot into the waters of peace

I won’t let you drown in the ocean of romance

Let me show you how the world should really be

I can give you something to embrace and believe

If you could ever let me kiss her lovely lips,

She could feel how much I cherish her as a person

I could ensure enriched love, perfection, and treasures.

Our world would possess serenity and loyalty

I don’t lust for you, I crave you.

We would vanish as our delicate souls emerge as one.

The clouds that are above us seem to open up

You can step your foot into the waters of peace,

I won’t let you drown in the ocean of romance.

Let me show you how the world should really be,

I can give you something to embrace and believe.

If you could ever feel the touch of my hands,

She could see that all of her grace that sits on a pedestal.

I could ensure magic, warmth, and comfort

Our world would latch on to balance and patience

I don’t lust for you, I glorify you

We would grasp on the ropes of love and affection.

The scenery is gleaming with trust

You can step your foot into the waters of peace,

I won’t let you drown in the ocean of romance.

Let me show you how the world should really be

I can give you something to embrace and believe

She dwelled in the chair of the copycat

She fell into a whirl of mischievousness

Rotating around the word swipe

She watched the clock tick in exile

She twisted herself between lies and truth

Revolving around the word heist

She was smoldering among the thieves

She lost respect when she stole phrases

Spinning around the word hijacked

She viciously borrowed invincible words

She stood in the shadows of peace

Circling around the word embezzled

She wore an invisible crown of deceit

She vanished when others pointed fingers

On the other side of the sphere with crooks
