BLUE HEARTBEAT

Time has passed just like you, my heart doesn’t beat red it’s blue,

The universe is the same but my world has changed, without your presence my eyes still rain,

I hear your voice when thoughts of you arise, I feel your touch of motherly advice, when I try to go left you steer me right

You were an angel even before he gave you wings , you sweet mother always answered to my cries for you my voice was a ring , and your response to my need always immediate no answering machine, I always see your face my reflection in everything , looking in the mirror is a blessing so steep, To look at myself and see that peak of you in me, is where I find my joy and settle with peace , Visions of you from the past bring me sweet dreams , rather it’s day or it’s night , I can feel you inside , my belly reminds me of the cord that was cut, and my veins are so strong cuz they were made from your blood, I have no reason to be sad , but many to be glad , that I can proudly say with a smile, that You are my mother and I am your child , I’ve expanded your love by bringing new life , a child that is grand protected by your light , when I look at Iretta, or myself it brings a smile so bright, because now I can appreciate seeing you twice , and when she smiles I know everything is alright , it’s that message from god to you and you to me, when I see her dimples and full set of teeth, it’s not just a cheese, it’s the confirmation of your message being received, then I know that your with me so I continue to breathe, your love gives me oxygen that I can’t get from trees, your my Mother Nature it was time to go you didn’t leave , though I feel that it was too soon as I sit and reminisce in this room, I am alone physically but your prescious spirit is in the room, tears fill my eyes and I don’t know what to do , because only tears of your joy like a flower makes me bloom 🌺,

BEACH 2 REACH

BEACH 2 REACH

Wind whispering into ear during a breeze while sitting in sand

To the left is significantly the other of this beautiful shining band

The going down sun in calming every thought is racing in mind

No conversation amidst only eyes glued to one another loving

 blind

The orange reflection is riding waves in the background setting 

mood 

Strangers are jogging past while birds begin pecking away at

 food

Wearing a white dress with red flowers running all over front and

 back

Sporting a blue button up with checkers and a nice white ironed pair of slacks 

His and her arms both in enchanting embrace fingers touching backs in lace

This position combined with silent stare activates stimulation in each adulting place

Surrounding events slowly disappear during trance and all sound’s turn mute

Her eyes began to close as she leans in to kiss, anxiously waiting he extends his flute

Closed lips open during kiss extending both tongues leading them to passionate fight

The orange sun has disappeared allowing stars to appear revealing the night 

Four hands begin to move quickly gripping soft body parts experimenting during lust

Stimulation and arousal reaches its peak while both bodies get closer in thrust

Only nature and newlyweds are left as the waves calm down to a whisper

She climbs on top of him with a smile he grasps her hips as her strokes produce blisters

Temperature rises and they both start to sweat, panting they switch positions

He removes his clothing then reaches under her dress slowly preparing to engage ignition

Her eyes read yes as she holds in her breath preparing for his force to enter

Slowly and with distilled nerves he becomes ready to transform into a man during winter

Inside a rush during erupt forces a chill to travel from top to bottom rushing 

After he lifts up slightly in search for her facial expression and sees her blushing 

Intercourse and exercise in exploration continues for hours on end until climb

She answers his uncertainty with waves gushing all over from within like rhyme 

Complimenting all of her gifts he explodes a grand finale then lays next to her brand new

Nervously smiling she lays her head upon his chest wrapping her legs around his like glue

Connected under blanket and stars they sleep in warmth after needed release

Singing birds above provide them with pleasant wake, forever they embark this feast

While picket fence and mini versions of each other come along in future time

Joy and a memory never to be forgotten creates a fairytale for them one of a kind.

ALL HEARTS WITH MISSING FLOW

When close loved ones are called home, temporarily the heart feels empty and alone, Condolences are shared in hugs, kisses, and by phone, You’re thankful for all support but inside your emotions are stone, feelings from your inner kid runs from all of your grown, The thought of your favorite human disappearing to bone, Makes every clock on walls around you sound so loudly in tone, And every action around you slows down when you hear a sad song, Day by day that reality hits the truth replays like a movie thats long, Your standing on the other side after ping but there comes no pong, Mentally exhausted from replayed memories that drain your last strong, The more your tears build your brave tells ready they’re wrong, Knowing that your fake real cant save the temporary prolong, The rushing flood has been waiting for verification up close to be thrown, The finale is always verified with the last view of their emptied clone, The outer is present but the inner spirit was a lively lived loan, Equipped you were with the knowledge that one day this happening was prone, But the unexpected nature of not knowing how or when makes suddenly an unfair tone, Like you’re suffering more than anyone has ever thought to have known, Its like driving a brand new car with four tires that’s already blown, Your everything has stopped and is sitting in box with trimmed chrome, Service comes to replace them all, They can’t be patched there is no postpone, After sitting on the side for a while your trip resumes to its zone, Yes you are blessed to be able to roam, But it’ll never be the same travel no matter how familiar the road, You will forever feel off balance with unfamiliar load, Unable to place back together the past, It’s already towed, Always you’ll have a reserved spot for them unique after scold, Unforeseen future conversations about them will turn your frowning lips to smile by unfold, Happiness does come again just when you think it’s sold, And in that moment their spirit is there to warm the cold, That’s the push you’ll recognize that reignites your soul, This courage for eternity is your gliding float, Until your time comes to provide the same light for once missing your lively glow, This poem is a dedication to all the hearts who are currently missing their flows, Inspiration came from two of my passing members and all the CORONAVIRUS VICTIMS who met their goodbyes at the unexpected doors close! …

GHOST OF HOPE

 ⟰Ghost Of Hope⟱                     

The ghost of hope has a dark shadow trying to tell you no, but i swallow my pride and swallow that ball of fear in my throat, because i know your wings are surrounding me like the warmest coat, Listening to your voice in my head i swear your words are stored inside my  most sacred vault, I remember you were always there when i needed help the most, If you were elected for reliability i swear you’d have a million votes, Sometimes it feels like your deaths a lie and your gonna pop up and tell me it was all a hoax,  But then i drive by your house and realize it’s no longer a home , there’s only stories to tell of you to brag and boast, like the fact that if someone asked you for a piece of bread you’d give your whole loaf, Now that’s a real man who forever deserves a toast, Since you left i haven’t attended a party with a better host, i love the way your spirit leaves its windy notes, I thank God for allowing you to let your presence be known, without it i know my mind would truly explode, and my heart would weep between my beating 

pulse, Sometimes i ask God why don’t you just let me go?, I just need five minutes with him it won’t take too long, and every time i ask he tells me nope, and it makes my pressure rise 

and my temper blow, but i guess He’s got more seeds for me to sow, so i reminisce on your smile and it helps me grow, your powerful memories fuel my fires glow, why does grieving involve pain so slow, It enters through my mind and attaches to my bones, With every breath inside until it lands beneath my toes, will i ever escape the sour that tied my sweets last bow, No matter how much loss time eats memories keep serving up in my favorites bowl, sentimental treasure is that very  un-pawnable gold, No matter the hour that stands somethings will never get old, stories inside of hearts forever told, blood tied to bonded love always flows, Happiness comes to mind whenever i see your photo, Now when i see your name its my eyes favorite Logo, Your famous to me i’ll forever write to you pro-bono, Grandads voice is now my favorite solo.

IN TUNE WITHOUT GATHER

Looking for found while seeking find

Tying loose ends caught in between bind

Waiting on forever while standing in time

Spending on worse praying for better 

Soaking up fry as you spill wetter

Looking for numbers and waiting letters

Waiting in reverse walking in drive

Already there, planning to arrive

Anticipating the bark during the bite

Stating the facts after the fight

Making the U turn after the right

Fixing the right inside the wrong

Cutting the short before the long

Singing the note before the song

Or watching the music video

Before the even record the audio

Would you take parenting before sexual pleasures

Mastering calmness under life’s pressures

You can’t laugh while you watch the coffin drop 

Pain will do what anger wants to pop 

Get caught prepared slipping unaware

Or you won’t find what wasn’t found elsewhere.

Corona Virus Closing Iris !!


The virus gone viral is at the end of the loop in its spiral,

The nation together has all walked to the top waiting to meet our most hated rival.

Waiting with mask to throw over the ledge, Practicing arms wave at

recital, refusing to bow down to such a heart taking, venomous, lung shaking unforeseen trial, standing high on our feet dedicated to create a treatment that’s primal, making those  who rest peacefully proud though they are victim is vital, corona Miss Evil soon she will have a taste of her own medicine at arrival, the U.S.A. is a team that massacres every threat with a smile, we will sweep this epidemic behind us in pile, there will be no double- jeopardy in this historical survival, our cure will call you out and refuse any redial! The 19 in your name will be for 1 ​ life saved and ​ 9​ receiving their revival, like cats with the 9th life nurses will administer running down the aisle, no more pandemic we’ve had enough and WILL regain our title! corona will no longer be our nation’s tyrant, we won’t

rest until we place lids on your iris, for those we have lost so dear, we

hug you when our masks strap ears!

A Tear

 A TEAR MAY DROP 

A tear may drop from my eyes and land on my thighs

In a moment of exhaustion i may let out a sigh

Overwhelmed but yet my head remains high

stress of it all levitate me like  wings when I try

That’s how i remained determined to fly

My goals must reach past the sky

Aim farther each time I fall the faster i climb

Carrying new tools the weight heavier each time

Thanking God for all the blessings in line

The ones i have received motivates my mind

Faith is the strength that helps my body survive

My heart beat is an alarm for my soul to remind

That there’s a purpose i was given life

So even if i hit snooze i know after neutral is drive

I can never park or go backwards to thrive

I can only slow down or shift forward to incline

I was put here for a reason I won’t stop til I know why

DO DONT

Don’t swim in my drown, Don’t juggle with my clown,

Do dream to my sound, Don’t push my around

Don’t stand on my down, Don’t come with go

Don’t leave my alone, Do vibe with my clone

Don’t cancel my zone, Don’t dig up my bone

Do blink to my wink, Don’t rob all my think

Don’t bleep with my sync, Don’t ate all my eat

Don’t down my up, Do cheer to my cup

Don’t jump on my bump, Don’t add to my funk

Do rattle my stuck, Don’t pit to my pat

Don’t rat to my tat, Don’t add this to my that

Don’t skim off my fat, Do rise to my clap!

we kiss time goodbye…

apart, a distance kept, past regret,and other mysterious combinations of lives livedinstead the love of a lifetime, and beyond all lifelines,blossoms, as we touch the sky, with hearts filled withlove and joy once, we bid adieu, not knowing whether our pathswould cross again, we, two souls separated by circumstance, now fly high,transparency by design, seeing […]

we kiss time goodbye…

THE CRADDLE

THE CRADLE

Swinging back and forth by the over-protecting hands, are the
cradles occupied by those with screaming glands, they’re sparing
the rod and constantly giving into demands, welcoming a being
into a society unprepared for such commands, making every safe
community unaware and endangered fans. Rejection is the recipe
for these unpredictable reactions unplanned, not aiming for
anyone specific but always the actions are grand, empathy a never
in seek, anger is the only emotion to stand, out of control seeds
are all growing in their selfish lands, regrets start to sprout
amongst families breaking clans, but it’s always after time has
expired and there’s no more pouring sand, caring attempts to reset
only begins to put more fire under pan, stirring this pressure
during boil leaves unsuccessful tasting painfully bland, rebellion
begins drinking every late arriving challenge like fuel in emergency
can, the rising structure causes the adolescent to become more
creative leaving the parents damned, punishment is viewed as an
alien approach that they aren’t even interested in trying to
understand, they hear no and immediately think unfair treatment
labeling these words their brand, if they are summoned to take
responsibility by force for their actions they plot during time’s
span, Manipulating those unfamiliar with them using others and
eventually leave home to officially expand, Liking to cause trouble
they seek destruction gaining innocent victims then slip away
through cracking sand, it begins with lies, and games during youth

then by adult it grows thicker and turns into a thrill seeking habit
that they must slam, pretending associates are friends when no
one else exists in mind a one man band, discarding humans and
destroying any and all in path they no longer wish to withstand.
