    Visions in the Dark

    Hear with your ears
    But listen with your heart
    See with your eyes
    Yet your visions will come when it's dark
    There are many ways to start a fire
    But you always will need a spark
    Eventually it's meant to be, all will expire
    Yet there is no end without a start

    When I found sin downwind...

    I remember when I found sin
    Walking uphill with a downwind
    Talking to myself, like now then
    Couple friends ask how I been
    Trying to hit a homer with a foul pitch
    Once in while make a style switch 
    & Stop taking swings at the wild pitch
    He bought me some lunch & now listen
    Life can crucial so use all your noodle
    & If you want to do it, then put your mind to it
    End all the actions that cause all distractions
    Anyone fascist or fake as the plastic
    Wrap on your sandwich, you know what a man is
    He knows what his plan, he sticks to it damnit
    And sticks with family, he is the pappy 
    That keeps them all happy, don't get all sappy
    We all have a bad week, and go on a mad streak
    Stop being mad weak, never give up, keeping it scrappy
    Then done slap me and gave me a hug 
    Oh ya, never be tacky, you know I got Love ✌️

    Deepest you wrote..

    What is the deepest you wrote
    Did you keep it in notes, 
    Did it speak to your soul, 
    Or did you just leave it alone
    As you are reading this poem 
    Did it terrify, 
    Repetitious reading  
    With pair of eyes
    Incestuous feeding
    That dared the lies
    Ambitious meetings
    In fair disguise
    Continuous beatings
    That didn't care to die
    Leave you in greetings
    Like hello there, hi
    Is this you just bleeding
    Fair well goodbye.

    If I....

    If I caught a break, what would I catch
    I bet it's broken is my guess
    If I knew Luck, what would it say
    Shake my hand walk away
    When it rains then it pours, 
    The storm like today
    Or the hurricane last night
    The worry & fright 
    Will only hurt me in the fight
    So I stay in the line + cross it anytime
    That gives me positive traction when I slide
    We could give up or just die
    Live in fear, what? but just why?
    If I hear ya and your cry
    As the tear drop sheds yours eye
    Just near it one more try
    Know you can do it if I....

    The Challenge is find your Balance

    Life will go smoother, if you let fate balance
    Instead of half way dead, doing a crate challenge
    Attempted suicide, attempt hurt
    The lesson here, is no lesson learned 
    Education totally wasted, messed up, burnt
    Problem facin' no one's patient,  next ur turn
    I walked adjacent as they built a case with, a guess & search
    I can feel the tasting like the pigs are basting, at best they hurt
    Survival of fittest they brought every witness, detective work
    Playing real filthy , found not guilty, necks just turned
    Marked on their hit list, they will never get, rest in dirt

    Be Careful What Youou Read Indeed

    Be careful what you read, some of it's fictional 
    Just like all weed, isn't all medicinal
    Head of the class yet teaching the wrong principles
    Sleeping like beauty, probably strong barbituals
    Timing will tell much to people who watch you. Impeccable
    To find a true love who treat equal to talk to. Incredible
    If you do not smoke then please eat I will not stop you. Edible 
    To those doing good deeds with no thought of greed. Commendable
    If I can just be Me & a shoulder to lean on. Lendable
    Whatever is left over after the fee, it's yours for free. Expendable
    To use logic In life is key You will see. Sensible
    If your intuition says something is Missing indeed. Skeptical
    The past of my life, most would not last for one night. Credible
    It's insinuous & not continuous to last forever. Endable

    Would You Even?

    If I wrote you a love poem, would you even read it
    Would you think It's sincere, could you even believe it
    Where does the love go, when someone doesn't need it 
    Tell me I must know, will you be keeping all my secrets
    No need to fuss though, I'll go ahead & just leave it
    The sex was so rough though, maybe it wasn't so heated
    I've heard enough so, there's the door I hope you see it..

    THE STREET

    Secrets were made & some were kept
    Commitments to stay & some were left
    No chances today, tomorrow I bet
    Forgiveness in ways, as its sorrow that wept

    As the darkness falls into the light
    It covers all that want to hide
    A lovers call throughout the night
    When the thunder roars & the lightning bites

    The darkness grew weary as the crickets knew silence
    Only sound around were the screaming of sirens
    The doubt subdued as it began to leave
    Then all was quiet back on the street

    Thankful...

    I know Life can be Painful. 
    Hurt runs so deep it makes your body scream
    Embarrassed, feeling not cherished, everybody's mean
    Need a different angle, so Lord bring me an angel
    With golden wings that only sings to get life untangled
    It only seems these lonely dreams 
    Keep getting deranged though
    The only thing I know is me 
    Yet Im starting to feel like strange folk
    If I die today will I fly away or fall to the depths of hell
    I try to pray in the light of day 
    But God I still don't know you that well
    So please forgive in this life I Live
    As I know my story you want me tell
    Demons attacked as I battled them back
    Killing off the devil's will
    Please engage your plan & save this man 
    Before he's over the hill
    I lay my hands folded and
    Let you know I'll be thankful still

    Rap Battle

    He wanted a rap battle so I would adapt to Act
    Moving so quick like the fastest rap
    Putting hands together like you had to clap
    Hitting so hard that it slapped you back
    Like that's a fact, so get back on track
    Like a locomotive, with no impact with motion
    Rhymes so fine that it's smooth as lotion
    I'm not boasting, I'm not bragging
    Let's do a battle and see what happens
    I'm the captain your the Seaman
    I keep rapping while you keep dreaming
    I believe it but it's you that needs it
    My raps stick out like a pair of cleavage
    Embarrassed easy cause your hair greasy
    No doubt your a mouse plus you're stale & cheesy
    Don't care if you need me, I'm aware I'm teasin'
    Dropped you on the corner, how dare I'm leaving
    You're a flaring heathen who barley breathing
    I'm rapping demon with lair that's deepening
    Close your eyes no surprise you're glare & peeping
    You slowly cry then you're there just weeping
    I'm saying all these words without repeating
    I'm beating your verses with a lot meaning
    They lock me up  because I'm talking freely
    This rap battle is over you gotta believe me

    Broken window

    You were like a tornado in my teacup.
    A storm swirling around my cereal bowl
    A lightening bolt that struck the rug right smack in the center of my living room.
    You desecrated my life
    with a love as forceful as a tsunami
    Charging through someone's bucket list destination vacation coastal village
    Where the ocean is so crystal clear you can see the tiny hairs on your leg swaying back and forth with the current
    And people live in huts instead of multiple story Tudor style homes and there are no signs pointing to any official evacuation route.
    No laws and no regulations to Pursuede some one to follow suit.
    I acknowledge.
    and I rebute.
    You had become institutionalized by the institute
    And instead of accepting the truth,
    You blamed me for being too old and tried to drink yourself back in time to your youth.
    How'd that end up working for ya?
    Did you wake up one Sunday afternoon to find you've lost your knowledge of how to tie your shoes and replaced it with a new skill on how to tie a noose.
    Did you stumble down the hall, half drunk and half hung over pissing behind the toilet bowl while you leaned into the mirror wondering how you got that huge purple bruise.
    Fumbling and tumbling cause you barley pulled up your pants
    Before leaving the bathroom where you neglected to flush
    And failed to wash your hands.
    Half drunken stumbling fumbling steps easily mistaken for some trendy new new tiktok dance.
    Pockets and wallet are both empty cause you were stupid enough to believe that to properly order a strip tease it's customary to pay in advance.
    No going backsee's
    No second chancie's
    No dirty stripper panties on your floor.
    Either your ass didn't get any ass last night or your strip tease was more like romp with a dirty whore.
    You shove your face in your unfluffed and very flattened pillow desperate to suck in another wiff but I'm sorry, sweet heart
    there just isn't anymore.
    No more for you, anyway.
    At least Not any of the shit your nose is searching for.
    Nothing left of those dreams you had of waking up on Sunday morning
    not hungover, not in bed alone and not having carelessly flushed the last 12 years of your life down the porcelain thrown.
    You had 12 years to watch minutes and hours and months and days swirl counter clockwise in a whirlwind of liquidlush go round and round and round fuck gone in a flash your years were gone in a flush.

    I was never blind
    for being kind
    just made my mind
    to keep hatred behind

    NATURE IN COUNTRYSIDE

    How pretty it is, to sense nature around,
    Far away from city and town.
    No horns and beeps on streets,
    But bells of cycles and buzz of bees.
    With different shades of yellow and greens,
    The fields are coloured by God it seems.
    Colourful flowers with colourful butterflies,
    Little kids playing with dice.
    How pretty it is, to sense the cold breeze,
    Calfs and lambs running freely across the mowed fields.
    With every walk, good thoughts arrive,
    Fresh breathe and a calm mind.
    That is why it is countryside,
    Where nature is well defined.

    HEEDFULNESS

    Last evening I was in the kitchen,
    Cutting an apple for evening nutrition.
    Suddenly due to the slip of knife,
    In the clock it was almost five,
    With a severe cut and bleeding I ran,
    To apply some meds and sit beside my fan.
    I cleaned and did the dressing of my wound,
    I was in pain and thought of noon,
    How merrily I was moving around.
    But now I have to suffer for this,
    A lot that I could've done will be missed.
    All because of my carelessness,
    Now it created such a mess.
    More the negligence, the more we suffer,
    More the carelessness, more we endure.
    In this situation where so many people are suffering,
    Be cautious with when and where you are going.
    Don't forget your sanitizer and mask,
    Be careful in every task.
    A little carelessness can lead many strives,
    It can cost so much pain and even lives.

    APPRECIATE

    Appreciation is not just word,
    It can uplift someone's confidence to gird.
    Appreciating is an art,
    Those who can see good in others can do with their heart.
    Everybody deserves appreciation for anything good in them,
    It will help them develop enthusiasm and strength.
    In this world of demotivation,
    Let's increase appreciation.
    It can make someone's mood,
    It can let someone know the things in which they are good.
    Happier the people, happier the world,
    All around positivity and happiness will whirl.

    TEAR IN EYES, PAIN IN HEART

    Tear in eyes, Pain in heart
    These things are our life's part.
    No matter how much we condemn,
    We cannot hide ourselves from them.
    With the flow of life, they approach us,
    Teaches new ways with life to adjust.
    Each time it comes with different purpose,
    We learn new lessons and conspectus.
    But tear and pain never come alone,
    Many smiles and happiness are yet to own.
    Everything is balanced in our life,
    Behind a drop of tears, thousand smiles lie.
    Being stable in every situation with positive mind,
    Is how we can deal with every situation every strife!

    Prose poetry on ONE LIFE♥

    One incident is enough to change the life
    One situation can destroy relations
    One friend is more than facts
    One advice is best to guide
    One crime invites to dislike
    One fight is enough to dishonesty
    One compromise can make you describe
    One promise is enough for me to be alive

    Farthest apart

    Couldn't have been farther
    from the purpose
    that you to set for us
    with humongous waves in motion heading straight for dry land
    where we lived peacefully,
    without fear of being tormented
    and Fear of being ripped apart.
    Dying while trying to find higher ground when the highest of ground is unreachable to both you and me yet its unreasonably close
    to the table we sit each night and
    bow our heads to say grace
    before pushing shiny Metal spikes
    people like us use to pierce the nourishment we so desperately seek
    into dark
    ever moving
    None stop Needing something
    holes in the center of our faces.
    Emaciated egos and anorexic hearts
    will our souls to keep on trucking
    but we never do
    cause we weren't exactly sure where to start
    Apart from the sun scorched tips of barefoot feet we waltz untill we can waltz no more then tiptoe through the dust of Broken bones and shattered hearts
    Now waiting oh so patiently for the winds of time to sweep them off the streets.

    [Stepping Stones]

    ------------------------


    Poetry like stepping stones. Each word where I condone. A leap away with no connection. A sudden break earns my affection. Together they make the path. Each island step its own first and last. Tied together in conclusion. Their isolation a mere illusion.
