Raymond Monroe Is My Him


I ran and chased a pavement, concrete that was never mine


On a search to find her Adam, a mister one of a kind


Sanguine fluid that ran blue inside, red upon thy skin


Call me Misses Cellophane in reverse no ray of light within



On my knees I crawled through life falling into the open cracks


Hoping one day to discover the book of life the stories hidden facts


Inhaling the breathe of life laced with scarlet despair


Let I play a game of roulette or possibly a truth or dare



Trigger pressed chamber empty the game that dared now failed


A soul in search of self-reliance and a possible love to sail


A thousand miles I walked across to ask the man above


I come to thee on my knees asking for your almighty love



In you I trust and take to hold me by my hand


My child he replied I’ve carried you across the lava and quick sand


Your time has come and your story finished


Open your eyes and move on freely, woes will soon diminish



Off I went and roamed the grounds and found my missing piece


The piece I was set forth to have that will never be released


A smile I have worn since that very special day


The day my “Him” my Raymond Monroe placed a love to stay.

Well Erica - you could definitely teach a master class in writing for all of your adoring fans and I was intrigued by the confessional nature of the title.

I am sitting here listening to an awesome Jerry Garcia/Merle Saunders cd loud of course and sending you sincere warm wishes for your continued good health, happiness and prosperity and love of course from lake erie time ontario canada (and baby it's cold outside -lol) at 10:20pm

I like how your poem ended. : ) Good visual placement through words in sentimental and mysterious ways. A true warrior of love and that touch of bitter-sweet resolve.
