footsteps faintly
imprinted on the concrete
raindrops fall on the windowsill
captured by the writings on the wall
reminding him of his adolescence
he takes a look as he sits still
the scent of maplewood coats his nose
as it leaves him with remnants of
untainted happiness
potions of whiskey seal his lips
trailing off while the pain echoes
stinging the back of his throat
piercing his eyes towards the mirror
held back by his reflection
his breath trembles from fear
basking in the “lift of freedom”
while kisses remain bittersweet
dreams are the only thing that
seem to pass him by
only willing at living the “sweet life”
running low on his ego
he sees the person he can’t see
as he’s left vacantly in a disarray conflicted with his wounds
here lies a man confused...

treading by faith
only to get closer
cleansing myself
from all my fears
just for them to reappear
numb to silence given
cooling down the rivers of ambition
wilting in the power of the rose
rose from the time that once began
gradient skies seem to follow as we stride
only to push past the lines
cling to open windowed dreams
as if it never lasts
life is the bird that sings as it’s wings
have grown weary as the moonlight
starts to grow dreary yet they never rise
he lets out a strong cry
as he knows he can’t fly
knowingly gets left along to stride
leaving him only his dreams to confide
Dreams (Langston Hughes Response)
we played along the keys of life
colored along the mirror of the sky
we built sandcastles in my dreams
you professed love inna better light
bathed in the waters that fell down
poised with passion that we gave
opened my eyes for a new love to see
cleansing the air I breathe
astounded by the grace of our sound
it is heaven that we’ve found
it’s love
that has me feeling this way
the reason I get up everyday
desired by the love you gave
feel this almost everyday
fulfillment in my bones
flowers have grown
by this love we’ve shown
that can go for miles wide
if only I can feel this all the time.
fell in love with the world today
left home with a smile
his height stood tall
he was beautiful for me too
if only he knew
I leave him to the imagination
body & soul
illustrating his beauty
in its simplest form
caught in the right space
at the right time
in my daydreams is where he resides
from his lips to his eyes
it’s hard not to resist
with his words leaving me with bliss
I’d like to keep him in mind
refreshed and refined
is how he felt up close to me
letting my temptation uprise
frustration hovers over
scrambling the speeches in my mind
although I show it all the time
it seems as if he’s blind
by the chick that he stands beside
but it’s okay
I tell myself it will pass overtime
maybe it wasn’t my time.
broken by this world
how do I get by
miles run wild
as time runs off to
the wilderness it finds
ran by the silver lines
leaving no remnant of fear
in this golden sky of life
where tears run dry
the beauty of this life
is often bittersweet
like a forbidden truth
often told to keep
with the shadow of rivers
running deep.

do you see me
from the trees the grow above me
that grow out to the vineyards
across the dirt-risen floor
yearning for the sunlight
to love once again
as I dwell on thoughts
coasting along the river
confessing out loud
to the dried sunflowers
and the ultralight beams
walking on water with
the thorns on my feet
calling out to heavens above.
