Stainless Steel Rain

Life sometimes throws you a painful joke. You must laugh out loud to hide the tears. Some days, when the pain is too much to bear, tears uncontrollably overflow from your eyes. You can't hide it anymore from the brightly shining sun outside. Silent tears roll from your eyes. You want a garbled scream to be released with the utter pain. The agony that can only hide in the shower with...

The Wall

My closed fists keep banging on the wall. My lungs hurt so much from losing air. It's becoming hard to breathe. I never stop pounding even as I can see blood flow out from my bruised hands. My mind is in a panic and the fear starts to creep up through my whole body because I don't know how to swim and the wall is giving me no respite so I can get my breath. I have begun to feel weak...

I know, I can feel it. I can almost hear your laughter as I slowly walk in the stationary section of my favorite bookstore this morning. The new arrival display of journals and notebooks, along with the colored pens. Itching my way to start browsing the section, touching the hardbound cover of the journal and feel every texture of every page. I thought to buy two sets, I choose the red for...

She closes her eyes As tears fall down On her cheek Quietly She leaves this earth Not a word From her lips For her loved ones She left behind Everyone Who loves her Gather together On the ceremony With tearful eyes On her funeral Her cold lifeless Body laying On a pile of woods The fire Burning Her to ashes And from the ashes She is rising With her wings Spreading it wide To a new life...

  The 29th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

A crystal hourglass As the sands Flow inside makes That every second That every minute That every hour That every day Wasted precious time A measuring time By the hourglass, That contain tiny Grain of sands.

It was indeed A whirlwind between us  It's been so quick Like a tornado In just forty winks  It was gone Coming into my lonely life  When I was feeling vulnerable Made me laugh  Made it feel good to forget I was sad Then it all started  I felt unimportant  Unworthy That is how you have Made me feel About myself When all I want Is to be accepted And to be loved The love you declared...

420 Minutes

The first time I meet you in a guitar store, strumming a Gibson Les Paul guitar I know you are the man I should be scared to get closer. My eyes behind my digital camera focus on your face while you are listening to the sound of the guitar. A penguin tattoo on your left tattoed hand stops playing, and you lift your head up to look in my direction as if you know that I am looking from behind...

When I am not doing anything I look at your picture, and I think to myself, what it would be like to hold your face in my hands and kiss your lips, to touch your beard and trace your eyes with my fingertips. You have this innocent look of a little boy in your eyes that I so dearly love to look at. That naughty streak to explore is showing in your sparkling blue eyes. I wanted to know what...

Solar System

  Another usual weekend morning in the family. The Sun was cooking breakfast, while her children were in the family room.   Mercury, Venus, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were noisily playing scrabble. Mars was doing his school homework and get confused about something, so he asked, "Earth why is it your lands are more fertile than mine?" Earth stopped her knitting and lifted her shoulder....

Meg's Sonnet

The lovely sunrise each and every day The chirping birds that sing without a care The echoed laughs of children as they play The whispered words of lovers as they share The flowers grazing by our fingertips The bees that sip the dew without a fuss The wind caressing both our skin and lips Dramatic sunsets calling out to us A poem of love that trips upon the tongue Baroque adagios...

Burnt Toast

The morning sun rises, In the horizon. Sit by the window, Looking outside. Birds chirping happy songs. Thinking if she is awake.   Images of her stretching, lazily in bed. A smile forming, on her sweet lips. As she opens her beautiful, brown eyes.   Start the day of her, morning routine. Prepares her coffee before, She carefully picks a dress. Humming as she gets ready. ...
