last call

got stress
felling helpless
life is a mess
but it could be worse
just nurse your uneasy soul
with liquor and retail
combined when well drinks go on sale
it's a not so happy hour

"locked up"

The lack of his voice brings moisture to my eyes...
tears of "where are you?"
bringing screams of "I miss you!"
that cross my lips as I whisper into the darkness... "I love you.."
I don't doubt the commitment to our togetherness...
but circumstances have restriceted the ways he can show me...
I feel like we're connected through glass...
like he's locked in an arrangement of familiarity...
awaiting his appeal...
baited breath escapes through my words...
but they're never heard...
he can only see me...
so I just smile...blow a kiss...and pray for freedom...
when the times comes, I will rejoice...
the lack of moisture to my eues...
but they will be tears of joy!

He is my reason...
my SONshine in all seasons...
my only ManCub!

POWER (poem for April 3, 2010)

That I am NEGATIVE and
knowledge is power!

TATTOO (poem for April 2, 2010)

sharp pen stabbing deep
leaving behind blood and ink
flesh becomes canvas

APRIL is POETRY month..

Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.

I have several ways I plan on celebrating this year, but my first order of business is to challenge myself to right a poem EVERY DAY in April...I will post one here everyday and I would love for you to post in the comments to help celebrate a love of language arts!

The first one is a HAIKU cuz I need a warmup or two (hey, that rhymed.....WOMP WOMP) ok here goes:

hoes into housewives...
and you are NOT the father...
you ARE April's fool!

Also, I have been challenged to finish my book of poems before I turn 31. I am feeling kind of trapped in my subject matter and I love to step outside of my creative that end, I thought that the best way for me to do that would be for people to give me topics or perspectives that they would enjoy a poetic pieces about...if you wanna be my me at
