In Jest

Where does it all end
Starting quite by accident
A word said in jest

Tone changing intent
Hurt washing over her heart
Flushed cheeks flooded with tears

Rushing to hold her
Pleading for forgiveness
Eyes fear betrayal

Words have been spoken
Water goes beyond the bridge
Is this where it ends

You’re Back

You’re back for hidden answers here
Stop listening to those unclear seers
Stinking thinking can only steer fears
Poets write for themselves not your tears

There’s no encryption written in here
Talking to you within is the seers
The encryption lies within your fears
Poets aren’t your harbor stop your tears

The First Sin

Nothing can ever hide my flames
Winds bow down keeping away the rains
I do flap in the winds of regret
Asking will I ever pay my debt

Sins overwhelm my forgiveness
My sincerity is not conscious
Laughing aloud at my lack of faith
Hoping He rests instead on day eight

One more day to gain my faithfulness
Recognizing how hard I Acquiesce
She’s mine and the first woman named Eve
Now our sins cause us to leave and griEve

Watt’s the Matter Baltimore*

No way should we play about the way of the street
Look in their eyes find the spy with blood on their feet
We must turn on a dime so we can escape their heat
To get away from those who scare so we can retreat

*Please Don’t Loot And Burn Down Your Neighborhoods

Another Day In A Life

What more could you possibility want
Walking all around all you do is flaunt
I tried to help your brother you looked beyond
Taking all he had forsaking your bond

Why do you drain your twin why don’t you share
In the past you were one but both the pair
Then growing apart both loving Romeo
Pushing and pulling behind as he’s goes

Stopping and watching him walking away
Henry and Henrietta started yelling stay
Then he turned around with tears in his eyes
As a Herm they didn’t know Dad said he’d die

Branded For Life

 

She burned bright on the back of my eyes
Remembering each warm tear I cried
Watching them dance on and vaporize
All in hoping they’d catch her first prize

The Secret

What could I give that you haven’t had before
The secret I have that will help you restore
Your happiness that now lays on the cold floor
That can be lifted up high and fulfilled once more

It’s affection paid with my true love given
Healing your heartbreak and soul that was riven
Cast out memories one by one forgiven
And all his mandates once harshly driven

So You Had to Ask or

Skimming the water, how do we know
How deep or shallow the water is
Without running the risk of vulnerability
Or are we to know only when it’s his

Does Charon always charge for to and fro
If you had to assk for the answer it always burns
Are (S)elected memories of a rich man’s health
The only way to express funneling Wealth..

White Sheers

White Sheers

The curtains were white sheers and closed
Watching her from my porch she posed
For months now showing herself naked and vain
And she leaves the sheers open when it rains

When we pass outside, I tip my hat
Her smile meets my own, a diplomat
Windows insure her lavish lifestyle
Town peep shows allow her to beguile

Her free shows for me were inviting
Many Johns finds her show exciting
Leaving the other girls to help out
Understanding now what’s it about

Marching in Step

Giving it all up or giving in
Raising the white flag could be a sin
Looking back as I run from the din
Knowing full well no one really wins

Catching up to the ones before
Marching away in step from the war
Promising never again they swore
It’s better to give up to save the corps

Meaningless Words

Nothing can be said
Words are meaningless
In this situation
With this price of stress

I must agree with you
Very mysterious
Going over what’s said
Make’s me deleterious

Caught up in this trap
Being exposed this way
Tears can fill oceans
Salt water decays

Back against the ledge
Many miles down
Secrets sealed for now
New ocean to drown

Watering the Soul

My tears fill the hole that she left behind
I built it inside my soul, where she was enshrined
My chin sitting upon my chest feeling confined
Fog covers the dark street where I walk resigned

Mutual friends cross the street in advance
Passing with their loud whispers and piercing glance
Looking up from their footfalls and my trance
I wave with a smile under these circumstances

Twisting and turning trying to find the crack
When we talked, it became personal attacks
Things were put aside, that used to be whacked
Watching two people turn each other’s heart black

Stripping new wires to try and connect
Amperage too high, another reject
Nothing left to do with too much to expect
Boarding up the hole and my soul now introspect

Flowing Tears

Tears tracing her valley’s tender ridges
Her upper lip bends acting like bridges
Clearing her pink lips down her dimpled chin
Whichever tears flow they never quite win

Senryu Twenty Six

The doubt my tears shed
When she left I could have said.
Of what my heart pledged.

In Jest

Where does it all end
Starting quite by accident
A word said in jest

Tone changing intent
Hurt washing over her heart
Flushed cheeks flooded with tears

Rushing to hold her
Pleading for forgiveness
Eyes fear betrayal

Words have been spoken
Water goes beyond the bridge
Is this where it ends
