The Rain Comes

The rain comes
Sometimes death reaps at home
I stroll through the disaster
Squint my eyes to see lesser
Think aloud to top their voices
Describing the horror
Taunted by lives taken
Hunted by tragedy before it happens
I remember the bodies
Laying by the side of the road
Stored in my memory
Crime scene photos
And even after
The misery lingers
Thickens the air
Pity poisons my every breath
Pain corrodes my stomach
I remember not eating
Barely sleeping
Waking and wishing
I dreamed all the evil
That my friends were alive
All well, no catastrophe
But disaster happens
In me and around me
Polluting the ocean and killing wildlife
Tearing down homes
No rooms, no walls
No balls
All taken away in moments
Nature’s fury
Man’s only security
Hate placed in shots fired
Lingers long after
Revenge is pain
Accept what’s happening
The rain comes
Tears down your foundation
Takes your home
Kills your relatives
And you keep moving
Clear of the bastards shooting
In a storm but attempting to stay dry
Because you want the rain to come
Because you need life
You continue to fight for you
As they stack bodies
You remain while they cave
Tsunami waves and earth wakes
Makes us question our authority
Humans think they control
God’s laughing
Asking only that you are faithful
When building your temples
Before the rain comes

When We Two Parted

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted,
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sank chill on my brow -
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame:
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me -
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well: -
Long, long shall I rue thee
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met -
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee? -
With silence and tears.

Lord Byron

Far from Future

So far but right in front of me
Is it ill that for anguish unfelt I choose distance
For future pandemonium I retreat
Not wanting to touch
Not wanting to feel
You see, I met a lady named love
She showed me a world of miracles
A place we unite
Same energy, same body
For me, always a challenge
I read emotion
What you feel and what you don’t
If you could borrow my eyes you would understand
What I see and don’t know
If I might speak for your heart to hear
Could I touch your body
Allow you to feel me
Decipher my being
For the trouble one would not
Take more than one can give
To consume what you cannot bear
I won’t die a liar
I tell myself the truth
Don’t be a fool
For love unrequited is a dwelling tragedy
I desire naught
Take my time
Play in nature
And when they are done taking I need recharging
A refreshing of the spirit
Aware of what I want
In tune with what I feel
Conscious that I wish you here

Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel

You are beyond a love within-
An extension of my soul
Your beauty exults my heart
Feeds me purpose
You spread joy throughout my body
And glistens through my pores

Our past consumes our love
Stirs up hate in our blood
Fear feeds on old wounds
And inflicts on the new

But my wounds no longer hurt
And where they lay I cannot see
For your love overwhelms
Heals all that is impure
Erases past misfortunes
And fills my vacant holes

Fallen Angel

In screaming silence
Behind your blinding beauty
A dimming spirit drowns
I see beyond your vacant stare
Your soul exclaims grief
And calls upon me

When lightning strikes your heart
And awakens your sorrow
Put on your wings and fight your demons
Raise your sword
And my love will strengthen your might
Confront the wind
And my light will guide you through the storm

With an open heart and a beaming smile
I'll be waiting in our cloud
We'll dance around in silence
And let our hearts speak in thought

I'll embrace you in my wings
And the warmth in my smile
Will silently reassure you-
I understand your sorrow

Fallen Angel

Drink from my faith
And quench your purpose
Feast on my love
And satiate your spirit

Come to me
When you're sad
Lonely and even mad
I'll hug you tight and kiss your eye
Tickle your frown upside down

I'll impersonate your favorite comic
Deviate you from your worries
I'll reenact our favorite nights
And add a little spice

I'll take you in
When you're cold
Battered and hopeless
I'll alleviate your burden
Embrace your loss as my misfortune

I'll wash your pain with my tears
Absorb all your stress and fear

And if you don't want to talk
We can take a silent walk
I'll embrace your broken heart
Without ever asking cause

Fallen Angel

Your eyes of reason
Showed me essential horrors
Our Love
Gave life to my art
Dimmed my blinding halo

Revealed a depriving consciousness
Ignited poetic passion
Harmonized my righteous seclusion
Showed me darkness illusion
Heightened my sympathy--
A cruel world in disbelief
Sharpened my logic--
Suppress resistance- free impulses
Sculpted my poet's soul
United pain and love

Fallen Angel

Our splendor thrives
The proof is in our eyes

My passion and peace
Your devotion and loyalty
My eloquence, your reason
Still Intrigues us

Humorous chemistry
Infatuation everlasting
Unleashed passion
Freeing ecstasy
Divine release!

Our beauty combined is our antidote
It heals our sorrow and frees our soul
United, my Love and your honor
Is our golden ticket to Heaven

Moving Slow

We move slow
And we think everything is far
Separated by time and space
Parted by light
Illusive distance
Get over here, stop wasting
Some people are so basic
They need to upgrade the cable in their heads
The universe conspired to join us
If you’re “Madly in love” than you’re probably MAD!
Doing, saying, writing, the same thing
Expecting a different result, insane
These are our daily missions
You win some and you lose some
Move on, on to the next one
There is nothing else on my mind
Once you enter
Maybe it’s unfair
To want you so badly
To love madly
Lose all clarity
We are not truly happy
Until we embrace the present
Give thanks for all we have
And attempt to give as much back as we are given
But we move very slow
And we think everything is far
I march at my own pace
Going fast or slow
Depending on how far
How much you’ve given
Can you match me
Raise me
Share your everything
That’s my offer
But you move very slowly
And think everything is far
Until it hits you and you wake up



Buy You

I sense you around
You are here
Laying beside me
Your smell , our chemistry
No regrets, I get it now
I longed to touch
Now I love without desire
I hear your voice, painfully clear
Your shadow follows me everywhere
You are skeptical, It ‘s ok
My love is unconditional
That’s the beauty of it
If I own it- it’s a property
This is a gift, you’re my blessing
Chance is “hopeless” against love’s will
Brave hearts are bound to find each other
In a sea of devotion and loyalty
Where love is the star- there are no limits
Throughout every dimension
My love sees all
Another day goes by
Night Falls upon us
I express our love
My heart finds you and we dream
I kiss you and you fall asleep
Awake in my fantasies
Creating, preparing
When I step into the light it will be blinding
You will be beside me
When I read our letters
For the beauty appreciated in our union
What I planted will bloom
Eternal love for me and you

To love you

To Love you
To know how to speak from the heart
Express my point of view
My side of the story
To listen to your heart
To know what you want through the gesture in your eyes
To love you
A duty, a gift, a blessing
To have you, please you, give to you
To know the language your body speaks
To love you
A reason to write, to want, dream, desire
To love you
To know your soul, to feel your spirit
To understand your virtues, accept your principles
Share your ideals, to be one in love
To belong
To love you is to need you
To know you
To let go and understand we’re just passing
Like clouds in the sky we float round
Going where the wind takes us
To love you is to know there is no certainty in love
It’s to care for you with all the love in my heart
To hear you, forgive you
Be with you, to keep you
To love you
