Collection of Short Poems

Updated on October 10, 2009


sometimes its hard hard to stay positive
when everything around becomes so negative
looking forward head up but heart low
hard to focus when locusts you cant control
when you cease receiving and only give
you got your whole life your whole life to live
there is no hurry no rush so drive slow
or you'll drive by , miss acheiving your goal
miss the Mrs, miss the strive
stuck in a rut cant regain the stride
cant live in dreams and hide
or you'll never succede or thrive

The Tightrope Walker

The Tightrope Walker

Don't fall or stumble the tightrope is narrow

The tightrope walker flirts with disaster

Seemly know if shes fall he’ll catch her

Seemly knowing if he falls he’ll break

Underneath no safety net awaits

She relys on him to be there always

But always is not always enough

Lies of our Fathers

The words unsaid carry consequences

That being said the consequences are not cemented

But meanings repented vented full of anguish

And one wish is that theses words slips the lips

Jump ship abandon the confinements of the mind

Cause without fine men where to find

Say why foolish pride in the path of a prince

Left to gravel aint getting a cent no sense

So centless no pennies or senseless no witness

To witness the lack of wits in his sickness

Illusions allude to imaginary fiction

As the diction deceives as the tongue is cloven

While woven up his own being is sewn up

Mind muck his head is down he is throwing up

Going down but everything around is blowing up

 Lies got him bothered like here lies our fathers

In Search of a New Castle

In Search of a New Castle

Without you I’m stuck with second best, second string is all the rest

Me and you had a thing me and you had a fling now its doesn’t mean anything

I wanna leave this town leave it now your sweet smile will surely frown

I’m knock around in your head, dethrone your crown, place it upon my head instead

It has always looked best on me I’m sure you’d love to disagreed

But I've found it where’s my finders fee cause a crown like this can’t be free

Well nothing, she isn’t bluffing, she pompous turkey full of stuffing

And I’m the dressing complimenting the meal, over looked with little thought

This is a predicament that I seek to leave crushed inside like green tea leafs

I put on my crown its time to leave I put on my crown its time to leave

I’m a king where is my queen, she’s not you oh she’s not you

I’m no frog princess, we are through we are through

I have left your swamp, in search of a new castle a new castle

I’m better off without all the hassle all the hassle

I’m a king where is my queen, she’s not you oh she’s not you

I’m no frog princess, we are through we are through

I have left your swamp, in search of a new castle a new castle

I’m better off without all the hassle all the hassle

Honesty an Honest Me

Is it too much to ask for a little honestly

Cause honestly I don’t see where lying getting me

Pinning me up in a corner behind a wall of deceit

And it defeats the decent me and becomes conceit

I’m falling between concrete cracks breaking my back

A king in my hat fitted being confident with it yet lacks

The verbal syntax to speak true facts

Instead rosy cheeks red blushing

too much talking need to be hush hushing

zipping lips like ziplock lips locked too much talk talk

need to walk walk away from words that lead astray

no today is not my day there is no way

that I can say what I need to say

and express it exactly the way I need to say

my words so perfectly when I spray

lies hot like sun rays sting like rays

disgraced is the truth too much to ask

ima go hide my face

Verse 4 of a Love Song

Lets stop this chase
Hold this train let me get on
Let start the haste
I can only be young for so long
Please slow down please
We can ease into a commitment
No cons please cause i really meant it
When i said your the only one
I meant it when i said time spent on you
Was time was well worth it
Lets start something new like a child and birth it
Kick it, no more deception don't rick roll my heart
Cause i'm "Never Gonna Give You Up"
Never gunna let you fall
If your firmly placed in my arms
I'll never hurt you no not at all
I promise you Miss i won't go amiss at all

Yellow Brick Road

Yellow Brick Road

walk down a road with no path
can't see the signs, walk past
keep on moving like you know where you go
there is no end to your yellow-brick road
but if you were to find an end to your path
like Dorothy, you would see right past
the authority, old men in mask
hiding behind curtains while they last
if you gain courage like the Lion 
you can surmount, all the lyin
if you like the Scarecrow get a brain
the sky will stop the pummeling rain
but all you need is a heart, like the Tin man
to fill the bottom of your tin can

Beautiful Butterfly

To avoid confusion note: "his tyranny" is referring to an ex lover. The "He,His" is the new lover.

Forget a poser i suppose
Single red rose on a tombstone
Death of another
His breathe left her together
She is finally free from his tyranny
Able to see the butterfly she be
Emerging from within a cocoon
Broken beaten down by a baboon
A butterfly she flies so sweet
Inside his heart every time it beats
Every time with every line with every word
Everything seems so perfect its absurd

He never thought he could feel like this
Had a heart of stone now its pulsing bliss
Breaking through to the exterior with a new tone
With a new beat, thought alone was fine but alone was bleak
Now his mind is set on one but no longer Himself
For her he'd clear the shelve and place her on a pedestal
Handcuffed hearts like cardiac arrest
But like a doctor in medical He would like to address
He would never clog her arteries, she means so much to him as if she were a part of He
If she were a fish in the deep blue sea
If He'd reel her in that is all he would need
Need to survive need to get by, His hunger would become subsided
He tries to fight it but He can't deny it

The feelings inside brought forth by the butterfly
The tossing and turning yearning while he lies
Awake with thoughts of the butterfly

Dont fly away dont fly away
No need for a net she wants to stay
Don't fly away dont fly away


Don't fly away

Sincerely spoken

As is written

Rest left unsaid for it is not yet written

Flashes of Brilliance

Flashes of Brilliance

the tired mind tries to think but it is flickering
losing a gasp on rational thinking
nationally seeping into passive weeping
passive-aggressive beatings
until dollars are bleeding
dependent and needing to place faith in failure
allured by illusion
you reap what you sow you have sewn a delusion

      You know the best thing about being and stAying positive is that it grants you awareness. The awareness to sense the disdain and see the disappoint from those that have aspired to negatively influence you through their Games ie: "simple psychology", premeditated treachery---malicious advice, or insults. Never Tit a fool with Tat, just remember your misery fuel/excites them! It's like fueling a vehicle that needs gas. Let them find energy elsewhere. Try your best to stay focused and productive. Playing the productive game gives you something to look forward to....How Bout GrAnd End Results---- Sounds like a plan to me.........ciao

      BTW your writing is great.....keep up the good work!
