Love Awakened .......... Prose poem

I awaken this morning, the same way I fell asleep,
Stomach pressed up against the smooth curvature of your back,
Pelvic, tight against the back of yours,
One arm wrapped around the indention of your waist,
with my hand full fisted with the softness of your breast flesh,
Lips resting on the nape of your neck,
while my nose inhale the subdued scent of you,
I awaken this morning the same way I fell asleep,
Full of love, just for you

Merry Christmas ....... Silent Night .......



Silent night By the Temptations..





He died,
 So all could live...
We owe it to him,
Not to take this life for granted,
And live our lives to the fullest...

So let's celebrate the beginning of life ...





Merry Christmas from my family, to yours...

Just ........ A Christmas thought ...


Xmas is usually a time we all reflect,

Reflect on what we have accomplished, or what we did not

Reflect on what we received or did not receive,
Be it spiritual or materialistic

Reflect on those who are no longer with us,
To help celebrate life blessings,

Reflect on the new life that has arrived,
And their search to find their place in life

Reflect on the love and respect I have for my family and friends,
And the love and respect they have shown me ...

And when all the reflecting in my mind was all done,
I realized that all I need in my life is the love of my family and friends;
The love of God in my heart,
And the rest is just that...  

Just....

Reasons ......... Prose Poetry (Thought series)


Did you know,
That I need you?

Did you know,
That I want you?

Did you know,
That I love you just the way you are?

I asked,
Just in case you forgot...

Disenchanted ....

I've been reading some blogs lately, and I have found a lot of people disenchanted by love and filling bitter. Music has always been my outlet so I'm leaving a song with a message for those who have love and lost...


Song by Boyz to Men ... "Never" 
Lyrics...

In this world today
Love is scarce and far away
And your heart gets so afraid
To trust someone
All the times he let you down
There was no love to be found
Well it's not the end
There'll be time to mend
And you'll love again, oh


Chorus:
Never (never)
Never let a broken heart
Take a chance for love away
Don't never let it make you
Fall apart
Never
Never ever let the pain (never let the pain)
Take your need for love away
Never, no never


And I know it seems hard
Open up let down your guards
But you owe it to your heart
Try again
Oh comes a time when we must change
What the past has thrown away
Don't take the blame
Don't be ashamed
Throw your fears away


Chorus: 
Never (never)
Never let a broken heart (never let a broken heart)
Take a chance for love away (oh no)
Don't never let it make you
Fall apart
Never (no never)
Never ever let the pain (oh no)
Take your need for love away (take it away)
Never, no never


Bridge:
I know (let go) don't be afraid
For you will never find
Another one you love again
(I know) i know that you'll be sorry girl (oh so sorry)
Be strong (be strong)
Before it's too late
Because forever is too long
For you to live in pain
Just don't give up
Please open up 
To love, to love, to love


Chorus(2x):
Never
Never let a broken heart (never let a broken heart)
Take a chance for love away (take you love away)
Don't never let it make you fall apart
(no never, never let it make you fall apart)
Never (whoa)
Never ever let the pain (never, ohh)
Take your need for love away (take it away)
Never, no never

(so don't be afraid)
Never
(you'll love again)
Never let a broken heart
(no you don't have to live in pain)
Take you chance for love away
(it's never too late, you'll find a way)
Don't ever let it make you fall apart
(to loooove, whoa don't be afraid, you'll love again)

Never
Never ever let the pain
(no you don't have to live in pain)
Take your need for love away
(girl there's a way, you'll find a way)
Never, no never
(it's never too late)


Let peace be still your heart,
And love find its way back in...

Thought series... Faces of Memorial day ........ Prose poem


Thinking:
Thinking of Memorial Day,
And flashes of faces without names flesh through my mind,
Young faces, uncertain faces, scared faces, proud faces, faces I learned to call friend

Fifthly faces I never saw before,
Fifthly faces of different faiths, thrown together by faith,
Fifthly faces that had to learn to live together, learn together, fight together

Faces of men big and tall,
Short and fat,
And some like myself, just plain skinny

Faces I would of walked into on the street and never spoke too,
Faces that had to learn to run until they dropped, 
Fight hand to hand combat,
Shoot to kill his enemy,
Watch each other backs,
Watch your friends die

At first there were only faces, then names came with those faces,
Cities and states of places we called home,
Faces that never felt the softness of snow flakes melting on their face, throw snow balls,
Faces that never saw the blue of the ocean reaching out to the sky, reflecting the bright light of the moon
Faces that never flew in a plane, rode a train, or sail in a boat,
But all having one goal in mind, wining the war and coming home standing upright

But those faces knew the score, one out of ten of us would never come back alive,
Some of us was going to be blown up, shot up, throats slit in the dark, in a land we couldn't even spell its name

But those faces endured the running drills, the slaps in the face, the kicks in our privates, called out our names, to become soldiers of war,
Wars most people still don't know what it was really all about, wars of political aspect, wars that freed nations,
But regardless of the reason, win or loose, faces paid the ultimate price

I no longer remember the names, I do remember what we endure together,
I remember the color in your face, becoming a none factor, because you had to relay on that face to return home,
I remember the different personalities we all had, the stare of a men who never saw a face of color up close, but learned that all he had heard about those faces were not true,
I remember faces talking about milking cows, riding horses, tossing hay, while others talked about chasing woman, driving their fast car, working in a office, driving a semi truck, exchanging stories of home that we all missed

Then one day it came, we were all fighting men...
Some faces were deployed straight to the war, some went to the unknown, some like myself found themeless in a classroom, learning a trade to support the men fighting in the field

I sometimes wonder what ever happened too the faces I learned to call friend,
Who was the the first too die, who was the last to survive, and if that California nerd ever got to feel the softness of a snowflake, melt on his face...

To the fallen that served their countries, and the ones who like myself, came home to their always worried moms, a Salute to you on this day of recognition....





Thought series is just random thoughts running through my mind, and I capture it on paper...

Happy Mother Day Song ....... In Memory Of Mother O ...





"A Song For Mama Lyrics"

You taught me everything
And everything you've given me
I always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone I can be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were grey
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me
And no one else can be what you have been to me
You'll always be, you always will be the girl
In my life for all times

[Chorus:]
Mama, mama you know I love you
Oh you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like
Tears from the stars
Mama, I just want you to know
Lovin' you is like food to my soul

You're always down for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did

And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on

There were so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me
And say to me I can face anything
And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be
You will always be the girl in my life, ooh oh

[Chorus:]
Mama, mama, you know I love you
Mama, mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama I just want you to know your love is like food to my soul
Never gonna go a day with out you
Fills me up just thinking about you
I'll never go a day with out my mama

Happy Mother Day To All The Mothers In The World
And A Special Happy Mother Day To You Mom, 
You Are Truly Missed

Thought Series ......... Anniversary ...........



Thinking,
About all the things we have accomplished together over the years,
All the things we have build together,
The twist and sharp turns of "that's life" roller coaster ride, we have rode together,
The house we turned into our home,
A home, were we raised wonderful children, that have became young adults who are respectful in a disrespectful world, and individuals to be proud of

Over the years, we have found a special love,
A love that bonds us together like super glue bond paper,
We have found a trust that only happens to people who have learned to trust beyond their misguided thoughts, the miss beats of their hearts,
The kind of trust that only two people that truly love one another can have

In the beginning when we first met,
It was just happy feelings towards one another,
Now those feelings has bloom like a may flower, with enormous blooms of venerating love

On this special day, I really only have five words to say for all the wonderful years we have been together...
I love you,
Happy Anniversary

Always full ........ Prose poem


Like a eagle watch over her young,
I watch over you with an sharp eye,

Like a mother hen,
Surrounding and protecting her siblings, from the sly
old fox, I surround you with the protection of my love

I watch, listen and pray for you,
I watch your body language when its up,
I carefully watch it, when you are down,
I listen to your cries of pain,
I listen to your moments of laughter,
I listen to your words of sorrow, 
I listen to the moanful words you use to call out to God to ease your suffering,
Helpless, I feel at those times, because I can't take nor ease your plague 

I know, there are times when you think I'm angry with you,
But I'm not, I get angry at myself because I can't do anymore nor enough for you,
Because it doesn't matter how strong I act, or hard I try,
My mind and body is only human,
And in life's crutch as a human, I can only do so much

There are times when I hear you cry in the silence,
But what you don't know is that I hear you, and cry silently inside with you

I don't know why God has let us suffer so long, but I know he hasn't abandon us, Because when we are in dire need, he has always delivered in his own ways

You must not give up hope, because he's just a prayer away, 
And I am only a step away, with all the love I have inside my heart...

Smile ....... Repetitive poem ..... Repost


I turned into a smile
A smile I yarned for
A smile that made my heart beat with urgency
A smile I kissed deeply

No promises (listen 2) ........ Thoughts series ......



Listen, hear my voice,
I want you.. No, I need you to always be by my side,
To hear the love melody in my heart,
The love tones in my voice,
The love in my touch, 
The love for you look, in the dead center of my eyes,
Just, don't take me for granted, and it will always be there for you to draw from, 
To hold on too

I know promises were part of your up bringing, 
But all the years we have been together, I have never, ever, made you one promise, because I believe a man is only as good as his word, and my words have always been true to you,
and promises to you from others, has often fallen on deaf ears

So believe me when I say we shall be alright,
We have crossed the cross roads and headed to the light of days ahead,
Our steps shall be easier, steadier then before,
Our minds clearer, more focus,
Our souls will bear less burden,
Trust me, and I'll shall deliver what ever I have said I will do for you, for us

Relax, and enjoy being pampered with my love,
let me lead, and when you are able to walk by my side again, 
I shall stop leading, and walk beside you as your equal...

Endlessness ....... Nonet & Reverse Nonet poem




  • I have wasted countless days and nights
  • looking for path to endless love
  • Searching for its true meaning
  • Its ora of substance
  • It's feel on my flesh
  • Taste in my mouth
  • To realize
  • It was
  • You

  • You
  • Became
  • Part of me
  • Like minutes are
  • To hours of time
  • One movement together
  • Bounding two minds and two souls
  • To an endless togetherness
  • Of peace, hope, and love eternally
