Sunday Morn, You were just born, I got to hold you in my arms, Until away from this world you were torn.
My need, Has taken on the path of greed, Turning my into a whole another breed, As I'm spilling the seed, Of envys great deed, Oh..oh..oh..why am I indeed? My words falling down into the reeds. My actions are as unworthy as the weeds..
Gaming,all day,beating all those who play,no one's blaming,me ... because what can they say?
My Heart’s Burning
My heart's burning,because I want to be learning,and the only way to do that is by earning,my way up and turning,my passions into yearning..
Can't sleep,even when I count the sheep,one by one,as I lie there all alone,wondering why you were gone..I can't sleep,there isn't you here for me to stay by and keep,my heart is falling deep,and it's crying out the never againsong..
Spring,smiles and flowers you bring,and rain showers too,happiness anew,of course you already knew,wedding bells to ring,and songs of praise to sing.
Going to stores,with women give men the bores,so, men need to even the scores,their lack of interest seeping through their pores,they struggle within their cores.
books galore,is what i need,so please give me more,my writing could fill up a store,my need to read,is more like a form of greed,and yet here i am trying to lead..books galore..i need you more.
i love him so, much that when i try to speakno words come to me,yet my heart feels as tho it cud yell it out to him,every time i see him,i feel myself blush,and my hands shake, but then i thinkhe loves me,so then my courage comes to me,and i look right at him,and take my hands... Continue Reading →
As I turn the small door knob made of brass,I look out into the open field of tall grass,There far, far in the center is a young lass.Her golden hair swaying in the summers gentle breeze.Her skin like porceiln glowing brightly in the morning's sun.I try with all my might to shake my mind loose...

Universal Creativity Magazine 2014- April’s Issue
Loving you daily, Watching you glow afterwards, Making you all hot and sweaty, Knowing how happy I make thee, Running into your arms as soon as you are near for me to see, You are my dear, Your smiles, Make me tingle with joy, Our love never running out of miles.
Rain, go away Take from me my pain, Sadness covering my every day, Rain falling just like my tears, Leaving a show of strain, Cannot wash away my fears, Crying is all i hear, Out cast just like Cain, My heavy heart full of wear, My troubles all lined up like carts on a train,... Continue Reading →
Lies Can spread faster than flies No way to hold them away with ties, They never go away even after we die, Nor are they sweet as a homemade pie, They will only leave with good byes, They can be detected when when you look into another's eyes.. So, why tell any lies?
