Foodie Fool

Dining out to 
fine wine and cuisines
she knew the spoons
weren't clean enough,
and the fork across the table was gonna rough her up,
but she chit and chat
about this and that
to a succulent gourmet appetizer...,
eccentric,pretentious,and
tasty,
it suprised her...,
poison in her fertilizer
it ate to devoured her,
delirious for the delicious,
it munched her expenses,
taste after taste she met her consequences,
shuddering her last breaths
for a decorated plate
too soon
for any foodie on a date.

He Knows…

I got his back on cold days

when he forgets his jacket

or

on warm days

when he forgets

his homework packets.

I got his back on sunny days

when he forgets

his cleats for practice

or

on raining days

when he forgets

to be active.

I got his back

on sky blue days

when he forgets

he’s sweaty and needs a shower

or

at night

when he forgets

he played video games for hours.

I got his back

in the morning’s

when he forgets

to say good morning

instead

he says, “I love you”

and

I love him back

so he won’t forget.

House of my Dreams

I want to build my new house with stone,

behind closed windows and locked doors

for everyone to leave me alone.

Paving stones stronger than concrete

to trap my two eyes inside 8,000 square feet.

Every room will be a reflection of me

Classic, Original and Beautifully- Unique.

I will have solid walls and a strong foundation

to safeguard myself from delegating frustrations.

My high ceiling will be the perfect picture

of many nightlight fixtures

of the stars and the moons,

for my nap

on my pilliow everyday around noon.

Breezy

My life is interwoven

with the friends I learn to

know as I hear their joy and sorrows

as I daily come and go.

As my words linger

to be engraved in the ink of my plot,

twisting my fate and my heart

into a tempestuous knot…,

I don’t talk much

for I have written my life on

little pieces of trees

to be swept away in the breeze.

Behind the strength of my words,

I can see my despair

inside my soul,

to hear my own voice

struggling in pain,

to stay sane

as I try to be “normal”.

The world around me

passes me by

in blurs of color and sounds

not making sense

as I continue to plummet down.

As those same friends never notice

anyway…,

I can’t remember

how it started

and

I don’t know when it will end

but,

I will give anything

to stand on my feet

joyful again.

Stellar Dynamics

I gazed upon the night,

with a notebook I begin to write

honestly,

there’s no simple astronomy

to how this star found me.

His eyes greeted mine

A wave “Hi”,

a cosmic bling

we became a “thing”

kissing in Saturn’s ring.

I start a sentence,
He finished mine,

We said the same words
at the same time,

He laughed at my jokes when I want to cry,
He held me even closer when I wanted to die,

unbound by gravity

we laid down our heavy burdens

on Mercury banks

before the star dust

fell upon us

to lust

Our Stars

orbited back to Earth

cause we both found what was missing…,

Our stellar collision.

Unresolved Cries

Promise Makers

Soul Takers

Stealing Lives

Killin’em up and lying

getting away with murder

how much further?

Death clocks

a half a second a day

as many bodies get scraped

off the ground

nobody sees

stays around

crowds of unwanted

arms stretch out

and sirens blasting abouts

as cautionary yellow tape rollouts

a hard working mother hollars out…

“NOT MY BABY!”

Whelping and crying,

aren’t we tied of our babies dying?

Never Enough

I don’t wish I had

cause it ain’t never enough,

I live with what I have

cause getting more can be rough.

Steady trying to come out

the storms from hurricanes to

heaven and lighter rain as

people promises everything

but they don’t mean anything.

All this sunshine, it’s still

raining blessings

whole lot of hard times…

Abra-cad-abra

proof- no magic in life lessons.
