“Thoughts – 11”


Emotional base or stand
creative soul
relevant parts of this life
where you want to be
need to be
in the thick
in the in crowd
to live out loud
alert to every scream
speech, whisper or whimper
dreams that stand out
plans that dig in
I always figured
make your own way to your coffin…
it’s the only way…

Daydream – 1


I can easily daydream of you
small frame but nice size
just my size
I can’t see them clear
but they look like brown eyes
going to work
with an out-of-state mind state.
a little younger…
I can tell when you talk
that you still have that
“I don’t give a damn.” Hunger…
Spiced and well cooked attitude
a drop of smoke-filled air
got a sometime feeling of  “I don’t really care”
you have the minimum of same taste
I can tell by the choice of the tea
sipping in your own space
I see the long night ahead.
I see limited funds
from the work shoes
to the self-made bun
gel to hold down the loose ends
being a man all I see is sexual…
potential…
the devil in me yelling at you
the angel in me saying
respect the finger tattoo
I write just to distract my attention from you
couldn’t stand being caught again
while staring at you
not knowing what we can do; still knowing
I can easily…

Daydream of you…

Random photo and what it inspired … I guess this is why I call some of my writing “escapes”…

Scribbles – 10


“Never let the negativity and obstacles people put in your life stop you from finding your own truth or make you fearful of progress. These kind of people are not in your best interest. They would prefer you never to obtain anything so they can continue to hinder and mock you, to make themselves feel better.”

“When You Look Back”


We take steps to improve
show and prove.

Take steps to get right, stay right
get to the point where we…
Arrive…
Happy…
Fulfilled in life
we fight, because we know we are worth the fight .

Struggle, battle to get there
sad enough
for some of us
that fight leads to nowhere.

Pressure so high
so intense
we break, we come to the edge and don`t fall
pick up the phone
and don’t make that call
we live trying to be righteous
we live trying to be just.

Clear conscience and guilt free
yet leave room for possibilities
nothing in life is free.

Dues to be paid
construct and foundation laid
roads and paths covered and paved
sometimes its only us
who can make the way
you are
writer, director, producer and main of this play…

When you look back
I hope you can honestly say

“I did it my way…”

“Sometimes you choose a path in life because you know its right. The thing is “right” doesn`t mean easy…”

“Fallen Object”


Battered
fallen object
broken
shattered…
scattered

knowing after all this time
never to hold
a treasure of mine
no longer appreciate
a halt on it`s luster
lost all its shine

As I take this broom
I sweep it into container
microscopic remainders
remind me of what it was
what it use to be

every time
I feel I should dispose
I tend to want to hoard
keep it close
it wouldn`t be right
would it?
To discard
disregard…

The broken elements of my soul…

Sometimes I wonder what my life could have been. What it should have been? What choices were wrong? What choices were right? Some memories haunt me and I never really get an answer. This is when I examine myself and ask these questions…

As Always…

“Forever Posted”


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Call me
a god of the night
precious…
but  unprotected
I give light
where no one else would
some have to go out of their way
sometimes
to truly appreciate me
 
I and my multitude of family,
duplicates and clan
I can be everywhere
yet right here
I alone
even tho in my space
I am calculated never alone
never to reach the others shine
I stand…
posted…
staring…
glaring…
Yet do the same job for all
I never judge.
I see no color.
exercise no prejudice.
often neglected;
but always depended
forgotten by day
everyone passes
never think
to talk to me
never ask how’s my day
I never sleep at night
I sleep the days away
I work a night shift
you can set your clock by me
when I fail,
if ever I fail… 
I leave a void to be filled
in the darkest hour
I bring slight comfort like no other
I know to some
it does not matter
but ask the lone figure
or the stranded mother
 
I will be here
ready to work my shift
everyday…
 
When the day fades away…

I work nights. So I always look for things to relate, that share my same fate!  This is what came to mind…
