I’m a wounded prize,
Laced up in bitterness.
I’m a lethal injection,
Trapped in a empty bottle.
I’m a bullet from a war,
Only shot through my veins.
I’m a discarded black heart
Only seen in the shadows.
I’m the venom from the rattlesnake
Only to swallow with salt.
I’m a chill on my own spine
Only to stop from being numb.

In your arms

I felt the shine of the sun

In your arms

I felt the overjoyed love

In your arms

I felt the emptiness fade

In your arms

I felt the perfect embrace

In your arms

I felt the daydreams weep love

In your arms

I felt our worlds be complete

In your arms

I felt us melt as one

In your arms

I felt your precious tears

In your arms

I felt our life begin

Envy unravels

Stain in the jaundiced eye

Insecurity is a fury sun

Losing logical abilities

Rationality is ridiculous

Hovering and protective

of what is already yours

Possessing little faith

in your beloved spouse

Jealousy is a dark shade

of green that pushes

Demoralizes relationships

Breaks into pieces

All because of your blurry

self serving perception

You will lose what you

thought you were

clinging to like a blanket

Swallow that

****

Check out my books!

Staring into a bronze reflection

A ray of a silver lining was reborn

Reminiscing of the constants

As the variables float like rafts

Ribbons and badges decolorize

Glancing at still memories

Sharpen edges stir the mind

Gnawing and clawing at the drops

of paint rapture her soft heart

Fixated at the scenery from

an antique rocking chair

Cherishing the moments that

they created for a lifetime

Capturing the tenderness of

his hands melts away the pain

Yellow submarine taxis growl

Chauffeurs flipping the bird

Traffic jams six miles long

under a melodramatic sky

Hearts flutter and change rattles

Scent of Pizza and hot dogs

fill up the obscure potent air

Surrounding big city talkfest

Delighted with lipstick flirts

Walking by high dollar men

Staring at petty indifferences

Nonchalantly cursing

Engrossed with constant image

Consumed with the red lights

Unable to cherish or embrace

seconds of life on Broadway

Blaring hardcore

Metal music rumbling

Guzzling down a fifth

of Jim Beam at

the snakeskin wheel

with her licking her

saturated lips in the

passenger seat

Scorching engine

Curbside flames

Gateway to the

magnificent underworld

Drenched in the

madness and her

lustrous eyes

Salivating on the

speed lane to hell

as lightning crashes

Aching for the bombshell’s

fingers on my

trembling knee

to release the

infernos tension

She’s worth the

impact and ashes

I can’t sleep

without the scent of your pillow

Toss and turn

I can’t sleep

without you beside me

Toss and turn

I can’t sleep

without your warm embrace

Toss and turn

I can’t sleep

without a kiss good night

Toss and turn

I can’t sleep

without saying I love you

Toss and turn

Check out my new book!

Choking on self served dirt

Prancing in your delicate castle

Bantering with the jester

High regards as a princess

Pointing at the fabric

stonewashed character

Keep sipping on your ideals

Seeking hidden agendas

Removing the plastic

Only glancing not seeing

Interpretations of nothing

Creating a plate of something

Keeping sipping the cup of dirt

Absolutely lazy

High expectations

Self centered

Uses her body as a weapon

A stunning Hippocrate

Dangerously promiscuous

Inside her tiny head

She worked once as a hostess

for only two weeks

Demanding to take a break

between 5pm and 7pm

Due to an empty belly

Oblivious to the purpose

for her part time job

In this reflective light I couldn’t see your enigma

In this reflective light I couldn’t see your

dark wild

And the bricks stack up

In this reflective light I couldn’t see your

shades of gloom

In this reflective light I couldn’t see your

leaves twist in your tiring wind

And the bricks stack up higher

In this reflective light I couldn’t see your

blinding aggravation

In this reflective light I couldn’t see your

scorching tragedy

And the bricks surround me

He doesn’t know how great I am

He doesn’t know how special I am

He’s known me since the second grade

He doesn’t know I’m going to be famous

He doesn’t know that how much I love my Mom

He doesn’t know how I see the world

He doesn’t know my soft pain

He doesn’t know how I love

He doesn’t know I am gold yet

He doesn’t know I have the eyes of a photographer

Is Michelle the center piece?

A queen of sarcastic hearts

Withdrawn and cryptic

A gloomy black eye

from insomnia and anxiety

A condescending dancer

wearing stockings of

stretched out distress

Fulfilling voids of for others

Defined by her name by

with twenty dollar bills

Treating men as toys

with high expectations

Allowing her center

turn into granite

Check out my new book!

Between the dead air

and the white noise

Insomnia has filled the

room like a stench

Clinging to the anniversary

and illuminating memories

Refusing to let them

go from my palm and from

my pumping heart

that is secluded in

a storm above a small

wild island

Inside my daughters eyes

streams of sadness forever

stare into grey

Park Place is just a street

Home was always with him

Waking up alone

surviving each day

with a ray of hope

I’m beautiful

I have so much to offer

I know where my heart lives

I begged and pleaded

for her twinkling attention

I begged and pleaded

for her words to never end

I begged and pleaded

for her lies to be swept under the rug

I begged and pleaded

for her anxiety brought to light

I begged and pleaded

for her kindness to be authentic

I begged and pleaded

for her kindred spirit to glow

I begged and pleaded

for her love to be real

I begged and pleaded

that my tears would not create an ocean
