Aimlessly floating

Through the pastures of rainbows

Seeking pastel colors of dreams

Above the molded fortress

Guided by soft tranquility

Brushing up against an oak tree

Wings spread wide as an ocean

Absorbing the crisp air

Flying high as an eagle

Freedom are feathers of gold

Fluttering in the pink wind

Waving at the blades of grass

Staring at high peeks

Gliding through the valleys

Soaring in the mist of unity

Under God’s mighty hands

Grateful to the sound of streams

Appreciating nature’s innocence

From the morning light

Until the moon finds the hazy sky

Seeking the beauty in love

Harboring love in its beauty

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.

I can only give you what you want if you speak your mind

I can only give you what you need if you speak up

I can only love all of you if you share all of yourself

I can only give you what you want if you

open up

I can only give you what you need If you reveal your true self

I can only love all of you if you release the beauty inside

I can only give you what you want if you show me who you are

I can only give you want you need if you throw away your fears

I can only love all of you if you let me see the real you

Saxophone is singing on 9th street
To the rhythm of bus doors opening and closing
Shuffling of feet gliding on the concrete
Chewing gum sticking to the bottom of brand new shoes
Limousines pulling up to a twenty dollar whore
Staring up at the lemon sun above the empty playground
Children glued to their iPhones, laptops, and technical galore
Struggling to see the reality of obesity with every fast food chain on the corner
Taxes rise as our education system falls
Blaming presidents, corporate America, government officials,
And not looking at ourselves in the stain glass
Reflections of wealth, greed, and money grow as our morals decrease as generations pass us by
And the acoustic guitar plays the melody to the gamblers, sinners, and welfare checks to those who abuse the system
Perception is only seen through the eyes of a republican or a democrat
There is no jester in the middle
And the saxophone continues to play on the 9th street
As we become more in tuned with ourselves others really don’t matter
Racism still continues as wars between religions rise around us
And the harmonica plays for Jesus
Remembering why we are here
We should be embracing all of the joys of life
Instead we try to hide our tears

Spine tingling joy

Dashes of a stirring fever

Between dangerous arms

A hurricane of invigorating flames

Influential and inspirational

Carrying an overpowering mind

Flustered and disoriented

Inside a brilliant sea of lust

A potent dialogue

Dazzling and stimulating

Constant and consistent

Exhilarating flirts

Distracted from the traces of desire

Snuggling and up close

Conversations thicken like fog

Hand in hand

Covered up in affection

Comfortably sizzling

Love is like a blanket of tenderness

Refusing to remove

Wrapped up in the roses of eternity

Senses heightened and gripped

Endless desires and hopes

Kissing and caressing faith

Clasping on to your whispers

Brushing up against your smile

Clutching every memory created

Never letting go of unconditional love

Hold my grey agony

in your arms

Hold my silent wounds

in your arms

Please don’t let go

Hold my crying tenderness

in your arms

Hold my wild yearnings

in your arms

Please don’t let go

Hold my precious love

in your arms

Hold my shadows of darkness

in your arms

Please don’t let go

Hold my overpowering weakness

in your arms

Hold my wide open skies

in your arms

Please don’t let go

Gazing at the naked canvas words flutter like butterflies above the chill meadow. Shoulders becoming weightless as I speak to my inner world. I saw a dying circus. I witnessed crimes of lust in my pointless dreams. I sat in the fields under a treacherous sky. I stared into the innocent clown with a tear jerking frown. My feet are feeling like boulders. I was starving for salvation. I snarled at the venom in the second paragraph. I fell to the roses that read my poetry. I embraced the words of Mary Oliver. I heard the chimes of Hemingway. I thanked Frost for the road not taken. I felt the elegance of the chandelier. I saw my fears disappear in the clouds. I saw love at first sight. I worshiped the fragrance of authors. I no longer feel the stirs of blocked words. I saw the sinister leaves blow away. I felt the breeze of completeness consume me.

I still get lost in your euphoric eyes

I still get goosebumps when we touch

I still get chills when I lay beside you

I still get a smile when I look at you

I still get teary eyed knowing you are mine

I still get excited when I smell your perfume

I still get a fire burning in my heart from the sight of your face

I still get to fall in love with you every day

Life is full of fast twists and slow turns

Life is full of unwritten expiration dates

Life is full of stages that blend together

Life is full of doors that open and close

Life is full of endings and beginnings

Life is full of mistakes and lessons

Life is full of blessings in disguise

Life is full of dreams and nightmares

Life is full of shades and sparks of reality

Life is full of diamonds in the rough

Life is full of unfounded treasures

Life is full of tears of joy and sorrow

Life is full of memories that we create

Life is full of wishes and memories that we had hope to make

I want to suffocate in your bliss

I want to plunge into your beloved river

I want to soak up your sincerity

Open up and let me find you

I fell for your afterglow

I want to be overwhelmed by your eyes

I want to sink in your palm

I want to be strangled by your affection

Open up and let me see you

I fell for your silver tongue

I want to be enthralled by your charm

I want to consume your high flames

I want to sleep between your light and dark

Open up and let me feel you

I fell for your enchanting universe

I want to soak up your character

I want to touch your insecurities

I want to kiss your lips of heaven

Open up and let me listen to you

I fell for your wisdom dripping from you

I’m not in love

with the flashing neon lights

I’m captivated by

your delightful exuberance

I’m not in awe

with blackjack and poker

I’m in tuned

with your inviting voice

I’m not sucked into

America’s largest playground

I’m enchanted

by your melodic truth

I’m not stung

by the sliver city

I’m pulled in

by your radiant mind

I’m waiting for the harmony

to serenade Las Vegas

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

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

I found elegance when I walked into the room

Mesmerized

I found treasure when I fell into her melodic eyes

Awestruck

I found heaven when I saw her magnificent face

Hypnotized

I found a goddess when I felt a chill run down my spine

Fascinated

I found grace when a bolt of thunder soared through my veins

Captivated

I found perfection in this astonishing angel from above

Raptured

I found joy when her smile gave me shivers

Entranced

I found rainbows when serenity glided from her heart

Bedazzled

I found beauty when she released her wit and charm

Amazed

I wish I could be him

A mouth ajar

Sentimental winks

Rhythmic nod

Affection fluctuating

Tensions vibrating

Rising temperatures

Thoughts circling

Craving touch

Embracing pleasures

Lost in a trance

Clenched hands

Trembling fingers

Love and lust entangled

Chances taken

Fear of the unknown

Risking a silent heart beat

Mended old wounds

Slowly opening up

Slightly guarded

Light bulbs go on

The word living is alive


Check out my books!

Jungle like appetites dangle
Salivating like a savage
Like a cherry to be swallowed whole
Gulping down the passion
Engulfing like a predator

Primeval serpent enslaving
With exquisite poison, lashing
Languishing deep within
Force, forced ever deeper
Into the narrow, miry abyss

Gobbling and feverish groans
Temptations shredded to bits
Comfort and smoothness meshing
Melting desires in our hands
Tasting a scrumptious spot

Arching, stretched bow taut
Drawing ever deeper
Writhing lost in ecstasy
Agony, awareness fades
All sensation focused

Animalistic tension glaring
Expletive moans thicken
Ignoring the glowing sunrise
Peaks of euphoria strike
Unbelievable chemistry

Clutching, rising, reaching
Gasping, the final plateau
Feeling omnipotent, puissant
Shuddering slow descent
Into childlike peace

Releasing the outcome
Intoxicating visual
Mind blowing eye contact
Flowing like a heavenly river
Round one complete
