Spider Web of Seconds

With every letter I store our thoughts into file cabinets.
Mental notes of to do lists and accomplishments
Mutual exchange of silence through noise
My soul is speaking tongues.
You say everything with the blink of an eye.
Yet merely nothing with the lick of your lips.
Mute. We. Us.
Your presence echoes more.
My senses are on alarm.
Goose bumps from the inside out.
Let me learn you.
Store you next to favorites.
Name starred with asterisks.
Keep you book marked, close to nothings but everythings.
The overlapping crossing point of infinity,
Or simply the space between.
Simplicity of you next to me. still.
I have created a folder for my poems
I have yet to write bout you.
Little do you know.
Karma encrypted.
A treasure chest.
Pierced by memories
Yet lived.

You're a chameleon

Manipulating space within time

Creating infinities out of nothing

The never ending cycle of continuum

A symbol on consistency in raw form

The existence of a beginning that once was the last of something

Union of polar opposites that highlight both greatness and failure within shadows and spotlights

The circular motion of the washer machine and how it doesn't measure correctly with the volume of the matching dryer

I now must dry two loads of alphabets. Tumble low,for fear of ripping apart phrases, egos, and pride.

A paradox of two same things, that look different depending on the angle of light. Perception never exists without secret vision.

We all are super heroes for saving substance. Putting logic and knowledge to work. If only we realized this more.

Are words wouldn't be so jumbled within our emotions. And our lifestyles would match our diction.

Poetry is just something that exist outside of every rule and equation. A formula of freedom design for creation.

It simply starts from strokes of within.

energizer bunny

keep going and going and going...

i keep hearing a tiny whisper telling me to keep going and going and going. otherwise i would have taken 3 days of down time to rest by now. Although I can truly say that I only had about maybe at maximimun 2 weeks to really enjoy this summer with my friends and family.... I am enjoying everything the hard work is setting up for me. I have been on it non stop. Driving to my hometown, then New Hampshire... spending 7 weeks teaching at a summer program at a boarding school... to drive back in the reverse. move instantly. and prepare for a new job in less than 2 weeks. my body has been on non stop overload. my mind has been on overdrive since may it seems. plotting and planning my next move. i still need to clean, organize, decorate, paint my classroom... which is a blessing.... so many freedoms in the teaching world this year and i am eternally grateful. nothing like actually learning with freedom. my students will be blessed. while i g through the motions to prepare daily writings are on a hiatus. it saddens me... and so i am going to break this fast very soon...but i havent put pen to paper since leaving New Hampshire. And as much as I was anxious to get back to Atlanta.... I do miss the beautiful scenic view that help relax and unwind my mind.. place words in their proper place. soon come.

until then....

i will keep going and going and going....

Let it Soak


" It is not fit that I should give myself pain, for I have never intentionally given pain even to another." - Marcus Aurelius (Meditations VIII,42)

Now let that sit and soak!

Classic Isley

When I feel what I feel
Sometimes it's hard for me to tell you so
You may not be in the mood
To learn what you think you know
There are times when I find
You wanna keep yourself from me
When I don't have the strength
I'm just a mirror of what I see
But at your best you are love
You're a positive motivating force within my life
Should you ever feel the need to wonder why
Let me know, let me know

Net Sex. (New piece)

Fuck having sex!
Let's make love!
Fuck over bbm, text, and email verses
Intercourse within 140 characters as we tweet
Let me unite with you over enter
Tapping that ass on qwerty keys
How about you just facebook me!
Send my wall- kisses, lingerie, and Trojans
When will you get it?
I want more than your physical
That's beyond easy
Social media dates
Take out over skype
Let's speak poetry over gchat
I will send you audio of my soul
Fuck having sex!
Let's make love!
Why not use the internet for what its worth!
Press : SEND!

From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face
that I was looking for

Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking
as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstacy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your efflugence
has lit a fire in my heart
for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer

I want sum strawberries
I want more sleep
‎​I want an endless supply of paper
‎​I want some smothered chicken
‎​I want some fish with grits
I want to be held after I come home from work
‎​I want to come home from work
‎​I want to be a man, not who you want me to be, but my own man.
‎​I just want to be
‎​I want to be your friend, but don't take my kindness for a weakness
‎​I want to turn my back on ignorance
‎​I want to be heard, read, and felt
‎​I want to be understood, for who I am!
‎​I just want to be who I am
‎​I want to slap someone
I want to love someone.
‎​I want to love again
‎​I want to see my brothers again, outside of bars
I want freedom to exist where we all are
‎​I just want to be me again, not the person everyone is saying I was
‎​I want my past to teach others a lesson
‎I just want to teach
​I want to be left alone, sometimes
‎​I want a fresh bagel
‎​I want to stop leaving folks sometimes
‎​I want a New York bagel in Georgia
‎​I want Georgia red clay in New York
‎​I want to live
‎​I want to write and be right, isn't that right
‎​I want to be outside
‎​But I want to look around and be surrounded by those who look like me for once in 6 weeks
I want meditation quotes tatted on my back
‎​I want a massage!
‎​I want people to stop asking me how many tattoos I have, yet I want them to see the message!
‎​I want to massage your temples. Every inch is a worship center!
‎​I want to know I am equivalent to nothing that's ever existed before.
‎​I want a real family.
‎​I want to know - what is a real family?
I want my needs.
