I will never leave you

I will never deceive you. 


All I need is to be by your side. 


Now that I am old...

I may need a ride


from room to room

so I may follow. 


My heart is yours

do not dispare


I will always care

of that you can be sure. 


You will never be alone

you do not need a phone


to call me




I wil...

People who do not have all the answers

instead are looking for solutions

People who allow others to find their path

instead of trying to drag them down theirs

People who love and share and dare

To be part of the unknown world

We live in.

I took your family

thru many journeys


Different generations


Different needs


I sheltered you while you healed

and figured out what was next


I gave the children a place to play

that was rough and tumble


I may look small but my gifts

have been large


Soon I will retire and maybe

move on to other families


Or my walls may fall

Technological Breakthrough

rapid successions in robotic intelligence
and their underlying machinations
proved useful in passing the "Turing Test"
to deceive the people — via machine learning

The Faith in humanity’s childlike creativity
to get us out of this predicament
left to our own devices,
the generations of old
have presented us with,
an ultimatum ...

ghosts of future’s past

unwavering and determined
till the end,
filled with willpower.

… is this rare form,
burned alive from the inside,
the thrill of the hunt
is much too abrupt
when they’re frozen out of fear

with my last breath, I’m to rest each day
only so that
the past undeath doesn’t catch up with me.

steel wool

Panic is a double edged sword,
for the unyielding man at arms

with a quick wit and an iron fist

It seems to me
these steel toes

worn out appearance

You are perfect…

the bar is set,
with every intent
to outdo yourself.

through change,
you remain the same

Truth is,

in our infancy - infinity was real to us

for we are one with the all

anything is possible…

Energy in motion - slowed - vibrational
too hot to
touch or tap
the lava glass
in the valley of
the shadow of death

… Scratch that,
and get a feeling for the firepower,
at your fingertips.

The peace,
I never knew,
went missing…
watching the sun rays,
looking back,
I was seeing an oasis
in a puddle of gasoline.

non-binary albinism

If you die while closing your eyes,
is there everlasting light
on the other side
an embryo,
being made to walk on eggshells,
sweet soft fair skinned child,
drug wars over peace and love,
darker days…
I’m only making change,
to be sent back home.
The Great Depression
yes I’m feeling fine
ups and downs, on cloud nine
technicolor dandelions
seen through a screen door,

With additives added in for a caloric surplus,

Like all good things

there is a figure of speech
that weight is just a number

split into variations of 0 & infinity,

In the midst of night up until twilight,
33rd degree masons

Pen is mightier than sword,

chain of command
posited above the overly foreboding

God Complex

Devoting itself to self reflection,

transcended dimensions in it's existential quest

spoke the word of god into existence

Rainbow Silhouettes

Absolutely, positively your synapses can create an electrical charge that cannot be contained
Waves of euphoria are made to be displayed akin to a thin layer of paint on your face
Just beyond the outer periphery of being able to be perceived swirling acid rain lines the inside of a dreamy third iris on the not too distant face of the deep.

Oh, look how far I've fallen
Like Icarus with his waxed wings 
Melted by the burning desire; fell hard not soften
What does my actions do? nothing, it brings

Oh, who do I point my fingers to?
It does nothing but makes it more grim
Surrounded by shadow of guilt, no hope nor light's dim 
Thoughts are loud, i just might cut a limb

Everyday I try, everyday I submit
I speak good deeds yet ...

Man of my dreams

I wish it could be as it seems


Perfect in every way


each day

better than the last


But I know from the past


who you are 

and who I am


I am country

and you are city


I am

and drivin-in movies


You are

Grandfather & I

I am Misti--, didn't get it?
Misti(sweetness) is my name,
My grandmother gave me that
Honor, I'm too grateful.
I'm going to 8 months
This November soon,
My limbs are
Not properly working now,
As a little bird fears to fly
Into the sky, below the mountain,
I am quite like that: I can't
Hold my legs sticked to ground.
My voice is like the groaning
Of the cloud you can hear but
Not to d...

November is a photographer
           dressed in brown,
Taking images of
            Trees bare and grass sere,
            Lost twilight and
                       day’s bleak sun,
           Squirrels hoarding acorns,
           Geese veering south.

           Cornucopias of apples, tangerines,

Broken Record's Repetition

For me, 


Stop cutting.

I said.

A broken record.


Only now,

As she lays in the grave,

Six feet under.

I wonder

if things would have changed,

If I just once asked her to

Stop cutting,


For you. 


Would it have made a difference, though?

The reason to cut or not remains 

the same, either way.

Nothing can change that here

Inner Child

I was sinking to the ocean floor,

We were with two

Me and a child, surrounded by blue.

Connected with a thread,

I was swimming us both to the surface,

Then somehow,

The thread broke

And I watched as the child choked,

Sinking to the bottom

I was pushed above.

They reach me,


I give them my all,

Yet after that,

They leave me Alone.

They will come back,

Once again, for sure,

With a different face,

A different name,

A new personality,

All along,

And once again,

I will give them my all,

Will they, this time

Stay by my side?

I don't know,

But that's how Trust works,

That's how Life works.

I can be Warm,

As Fire,

Or Cold,

As Ice,

Flexible like Water,

Or Rigid as Stone,


I can be,

As simple as Joy,

Or complicated as Rage,

Worse as Fear,


Or Beautiful as Love,



I can be Anything,

I can be Everything,


Depends on You.

A wretched bully’s sidekick

You don’t even know when to agree

                                                 – just agree with everything, always.


And your answer is always the same.

Love Is A Violence

And if you must pierce my heart
With a dagger so sharp,
Caress with it my cheek
After you've retrieved it.
Paint my face soft,
With the violence of your love.
It is for you who my heart beats for,
Thus it is by your hands that it should stop.
May the wind blow you
My final breath to.

I do not think

There is such 

a thing as

A place,

A person,

A scent,

A sound

A touch,

A taste,

that I could link 

To what the faceless 

masses call home.


I do not think,

There is a version of me that exists,

Where home is something I have,

And not something I miss.


The past,

The present,

The future,

All in which 

I do not fit.

Hearts Of Hers

Heart of mine
Won't you stand at my side?
Stop your traitorous speeding,
So that my cheeks may stop heating.
What is it about her,
That her whole being allures
What is it about her,
That has me needing more


Who gazes at me as if I 
Am the one who in the east rises
Who sees me wholly,
Not for who I pretend to be.
Who has replaced my blood,
as my life's elixer,

Icarus The Fish

I am naught but a fish

swimming aimlessly through the sea.

Miles and miles of that breathtaking blue.

It deprives me of my breath

and leaves me trapped,

in what seems to be an endless net.

I long for the warmth of the sun on my fins,

the feeling of sand grains on my skin.


Day after day,

I shyly creep closer to you.

Your beauty lures me in,

the color of love. 

love can be platonic, love can be romantic. 

Only a fool mistakes love for lust. 

Love can last a year, if it really tries. 

If it gives it it’s all and beats only for the other. 

Love is unending they say it never dies. 

Real love doesn’t have to try. 

It’s an instant connection, it may feel like a millisecond, but that millisecond turns into an e...

And sluts. 

You’re always one of the three, or at least a mix of all. 

Bitches can’t control themselves, whether that manner may be emotional or sexual. Their pride always stands in the way. 

Similar to bitches, 


Hoes live for the thrill,

And they certainly don’t mind being strung along.

Seasons - An Acrostic Poem

Sing and dance before the last leaf falls

Energy flows in swirls and zig zags

Assuage your worries and soak in the golden hues

Silent is the moon pirouetting across our night sky

Oh! Where did half our year go?

Notice the liminal spaces before and after the cold

Seasons will blow our pages to turn and turn.

Ink Runs Dry

When belief in your pen runs dry,
It leaves a lonely page staring back.
Nothing appears despite how hard you try,
Imparting a feeling you've lost your knack.

The sacred space once filled with zest,
Now dim, dusty and barely lit.
Cobb webs gather around the chest,
Once filled with treasures from grit.

These fields you once ran with grace,
Now overgrown and no path in sight.
The shrubs...

A Living Corpse

At age three 

I dreamed.

Of lands full of sweets.

Of an endless coloured street,

stretched as far as I could see.

I dreamed of my toys,

that entertained me with their noise.

I dreamed of everything and more.

I dreamed.


At age ten,

I heard.

About wondrous lands that decorated the earth.

Of all the plants and birds,

our Mother gave birth to.

I heard abo...
