The middle of the forest    1962 -    
Michigan



Words, words, words
Meaningless words
Of who I am...

Words may appear
dark at times
To make life fit
Within a rhyme



Some of my poem/songs have registered copyright protection

I love to write
But mostly
I am a guitar player
I've actually been in several different types of bands
Classic rock, alternative, Death metal, Jazz, Country, R&b;, Hip hop, gangster rap. The hardest was a Mexican band. I had to learn to play on the up beat.
Don't tell anybody but...
I'm from Flint

Deep in my psyche
Broken contacts spark
Faulty connections
Between my brain and heart

So many traumatic incidents
I somehow survived
Violent childhood
Prison life

Over and over
Throughout my life
Surrounded by thugs
With guns and knives

Losing my children
When they were quite small
Is the most traumatic
Experience of all

I fought to hold on
In the face of adversity
Prayed for death
To escape a grim reality

Then I discovered a switch within
A way to shut down and try to mend

Flip the switch of fear
And now you're brave
Flip the switch of emotional pain
And now my heart is lame

Unfortunately over many years
All that negative energy reappears
Shadows and voices
Paranoia and indecisive choices

It feels so good at first
Yet to switch it off
In the end is a curse...

where does hierarchy begin?
    Is it where the strong is on top,
and the weak step upon?

Where does your dignity be placed?
   Is it where your always be the winner,
no matter what, even it has bitter taste.

Is SURVIVAL really that cruel?
That some of us are just a tool,
a fool for the strong to be cool.

No, it can't be that bad
yet reality is quite sad.

Despite our hard beginnings
Life still is beautiful
that losing isn't everything.
To where dignity is placed -
when you respect yourself the most.
That hierarchy isn't important
to where your love is...

I think about you
all my day through,
all my night too.
Not a minute goes by
that you're not on my mind,
that I can't see your shine.

You make me real,
you make me true.
I never loved anyone
the way I love you.
The moon breaks in two
as I fall away into you
the sound is old yet new
though the colour's
always blue.

Your heart does speak,
syllables so soft and sweet.
On my knees I kneel
in love too far steeped
to fear defeat.
Heart in my hands,
I make no demands.

My pretty blue,
my ocean divine,
my forest fire
you set my heart alight,
my mind burns up
as the flames rage higher
and I'm drowning constant
with desire.

She loses herself
When she looks into his eyes
A vast storm in the universe
Holds her spellbound
Mesmerized
The collapsing of stars
The birth of new
All in his eyes
She has the VIP view
Entranced in the darkness
The planets play
A series of falling stars
Each a wish from her
Praying one will come true
She dares not look away
Intense is this night
She sees dancing in his eyes
She yearns for a kiss
To intensify the heavens she sees
Captured in his gaze
Mesmerized

Kiss me already....again...

An image , I see  
from where I stand
The coloured sky
and beautiful land
The birds fly
and winds blow
The sun shines
this place glow
and I walk there slow
taking my time with the peace
Something I know I'll miss

  1d  Traveler
Walter W Hoelbling

in our daily haste to not miss
sales, appointments, buses, flights,
we tend to overlook the world
that gives us all these options

the awe-inspiring heights of our mountains
frightening majesty of our seas
powerful forests breathing life
the elegance of animals
a pleasant view of cultivated land
even the buzzing habitat of cities

we may be only a small part of seven human billions
yet it behooves us well to be aware
     and celebrate
the fragile beauty of our world

Thanks to all of you whocaused this poem to be trending - a very pleasant surprise! .-)

dancing are all the stars in the midnight sky
as the shining moon looks upon with a smile
and I'm lost in a dream of dancing with you
you love only you, dancing the night away

my dream,  a lovely dream, a beautiful dream
a sweet, sweet dream, sweetheart of my dreams
a dream of dancing one dance on a summer's night
with you, dancing stars and a shining moon

xoxo
