my tomorrow

tonight I go to sleep
as though I have no more tomorrow
tonight I'll breath as well
like would be my last
for I feel as though
I've no more place to go
yet rest assured
all the thoughts that come
singing and dancing on my mind
are those that you and I wove
when our love was almost pure
and divine

for now as yet again
night after night like the wind
you're the one
that puts me to my sleep
and when tomorrow comes
I'd witness again
the bleeding sun birthing
as if with it, you'd come marching in
my heart with its heavy breathing
hoping, my waiting...
is never in vain.

The show must go on

Come to me all you insulting people.
Come and unleash your vitriol
I must possess something that fires up your hate
And my presence hypes up your excitement

You'll never find anything good on my posts
Nor can you see anything beneficial in my opinions
Like a snake you prey upon me
While your loyal fleet of armies join you for the kill

Ah but I know deep inside of you
You are weak and coiled in pain
Lert me tell you one last time
Your efforts are all wasted in vain.

And I, own the last laugh....


This is dedicated to those that will never see the truth.

silence

Should we keep our minds

Unspoken

So the world thrives

In ignorance

Or should we undo

our silence

So the corrupt

Ends their arrogance?

bowl of sorrows no more

I bathed
in the bowl of your sorrow
I swam
in the pool of your pain
I sang in the melody
of your sufferings
I danced in the world
of your complaints
I slept in the bed of
your confusion
I hoped that light will
beam in the canvas
of your dreams
and so....
I invited you to walk with me
holding my hand in yours
you accepted it with happiness
and for a while
strolled in the valley of joys
then...
the devil reappeared
who's presence
was always in your realms
darkness engulfed
and...
you are marked
and clutched
never to be free...
she....
had you dancing
forever
in her tiny, wicked little fingers.

if only I knew
I wouldn't have wasted
my time
letting you danced
with my heart
my soul and my mind..

But.. it is so over
And thank God..we are very done.
Amen.

life is a gift

enjoy your time
laugh whenever you can
even if the world thinks
you're absolutely out of your mind

life is short
you're here and before long
you're gone
smile, let the sun shines in your face
smell the roses...
even if your allergy is killing you
dance in the rain
it feels invigorating

most of all be thankful
we are here
on this planet..
for a very short time...

enjoy living even if
most of the time
we're like pounded
and buried in the sand

be grateful, be mindful
life is a gift..

For my daughter Camille, my Junior

Im so proud of you my love
Humbled by what you can create
Pleased by how you see the world
Immensely impressed by your kindness
Awed by your understanding and wisdom
Lifted by your courage and strength
In great admiration of your drive and energy to have a better life

Your endless and selfless generosity towards others
Family or strangers

I'm simply blessed as your mother


Your commitment to grow and change

And on and on

I am around you always
learning more as a student of life because of you.

You are the epitome of humility yet acceptance that adversity creates a strong character to be good in many ways.

We are blessed, your brother and sisters, your dad, and everyone around you

Specially your one and only son, my Jaxon Jaymes, I am truly humbled.

I love you

Always,

yesterday's sorrow

sometimes I'm amazed
at how stale and stubborn
I have become
and even out of sync with time
but then since you left
I don't have any reason
to keep track of moment
that comes and goes

I din't even know
summer is gone
fall, too, is now buried
deep in the snow
somehow I am anticipating
the new birth of tomorrow
but here I am still nursing
in my yesterday's sorrow

I am never wishing
that our past would come back
hell no!
it's just that I wish
the wound heals
and my mind forgets
all these pains and heartaches

and I will be in sync
with the world and time
again..like it used to be
before I met you.

crazy

yes I'm crazy
loving you

yet what's my option
when sanity sets in
I don't even know who I am

so I think I'd be happy
being hopelessly insane
because only then
my heart rules the game

and so it is
if loving you is to be so
who needs sanity, without you.

I so love you...sw
crazily in love with you
I hope you are, too

because I'm in
for the long haul you know?
30 years to go or so.

The Rivers Of My Tears

Rivers of tears running
On the faded wool
Clutched on my shivering
Pale body, weakening
Ingrained with a malady
With no cure
Yet the reassuring hope
And lovely thought
Of my serene childhood
While's yet refuses to part
On the body that turns to dust
Like twisted limbs of my memories
Trying to reach and remold
The foundation of my youth
And as the counsel is cast
Upon the shores of eternity
While the fortress of my will
Is fading into oblivion
The anguish of DEATH escapes
One more time as I
Witness the birth of a new morn


If only to breath one more day..

redemption

don't pretend
like you never felt
the depth and sting
of my pain

you painted my sorrows
in bleeding colors
with your raw hands
and dig in my flesh
like sheared talons

I begged all the angels
to redeem me
but even them looked
too drugged in your vanity

stark naked in the shadow
even the moon lit up
your punitive piercing eyes
crushing my pride

and as the night bathed
in my shattered soul
redemption, you laughed
is but a figment
of the mind of a fool

I will remain shackled
in the claw of your
cold and unforgiving world

but giving up
is no longer my choice
I will find my way out
I will.

peace

Silence

Breath

Let your mind soar

Far away, over the clouds

Into the unknown

Silence

So alone

Peace I seek

And peace I found.
