    The snow so pure, white, new..........
    Evenly distributed,
    Weighing heavily upon the twigs,
    Of the branches,
    On the trees ...........
    Near where i live

               your turn.

      spreading out across the horizon
      beyond my vision.......
      blanketing the ground
      covering the rocks
      living though still......
      the snow that covers
      the place where i live.......



      your turn

      AND STILL... AS I REFLECT..
      I REMEMBER WHEN..............
      I LEFT TO PICK UP A PIZZA,
      I CAME BACK WITH COCAINE...
      THE BABIES ATE PEANUT BUTTER
      FOR DINNER THAT NIGHT,....
      I LEFT TO BUY SCHOOL CLOTHES...
      I CAME BACK WITH CRACK....
      THE BABIES DIDN'T WEAR
      ANYTHING OFF THE RACK THAT YEAR...
      I LEFT TO BUY GROCERIES...
      CAME BACK WITH MORE DOPE...
      MY BABIES ARE OKAY THOUGH...
      THEY'VE ALREADY LOST ALL HOPE...
      I LEFT TO PAY THE WATER BILL...
      NOT ONLY DID I BUY CRACK...
      I NEVER DID GO BACK...
      MY BABIES HAVEN'Y SEEN ME STILL....

    I look through my window,
      See your footprints.
      They cannot be denied,
      I would recognise even the very
      sole of your shoe,
      Around my place,
      Did i miss you,
      Whilst i was sleeping?

    I almost feel your presence,
    Afraid once more to peer
    Through the window,
    Lest you should
    Catch a glimpse,
    Antiscipation
    My heart races,

      I recognize you well.
      Even if it was not signed I'd know it'd be you.

      Cry no more my dear
      Though far away in the distance
      I remain to your heart near
      sharing close moments of laud existence
      into your arms, peace forgot fear

    my mind's ears never get blocked
    always listening to you

    you the one i can depend,
    You so vunlrable
    I offer you a rose,
    from my hand,
    Once wilted,
    but , you made it grow,
    Fed it,
    nurtured it,
    now the rose,
    sits beside you and the fire,
    Are you lonely still?

    Until the stark memory came back
    Rushing like the wind.....
    of what you promised long ago
    and you never did.
    Release me from this passion
    release me from the glue.
    I want to go on with the future
    even without you.

    I don't be like cinderella .

    Life is not a fairy tale ,
    so I don't expect to have a " happily ever after ending ."
    I don't wanna be the girl who has to wait for someone to rescue her .
    I want to explore this world , this life and not have to plan my whole life around finding "the one ."
    Some people go crazy over love and end up never finding it .
    I'd rather rescue myself .

    poetry, just not for everyone,
      Is it even for you, or me.........
      The snow, the rain, the fire,
      The non rules,
      The fascination,
      No Cinderella,
      No Prince Charming,
      Rather harsh reality,
      The Ugly sisters once more,
      May win out,
      Will we allow to happen?

    a simple sort of passion              once a maiden
    pass up the flame                      had sisters (3)
    for the wind's action                in an age forbidden
    a testamount to                        she spoke disease
    the power of the rose                tempted by madness
    petals intertwined                    she trusted the world
    roots kissed earth                    in a moment of weakness
    thorn meets flesh                     earned what was deserved
    faltering steps                       mirror, crystal, scrying

    eclipse of time                       she has only time
    where was it                          cry for her
    this thing I lost                     moments divine

    ...and a pause,

    breath
    reading in light and shadow,
    the chill creeping near the window,

    but the love
    oh the Love! of strangers

    coming together in unity of
    arts, effort without strain,

    warms me
    with yummy intoxication.

    And feeling welcomed
    by the hub within hubs,

    the unity of all things
    expressed by cooperative arts,

    a collage of mind & emotive
    text.

    The forum-fitting garment
    of our mutual smiles!

    Now, seeing the light coming--

    Love and light,

    Ours was a whirlwind courtship always together having fun
    Sharing lots of drinks and laughs, always on the run
    It was there on the dance floor as I held you tight
    I gazed into your eyes and saw your love light
    We were getting closer at least that’s what I thought
    But, I was just a placeholder, for another whom you sought

    Went home, to his wife,
    Leaving me high and dry.....
