    Dying Death

    in my arms
    slumber through your night
    and never awake
    oh! Dying death
    the race is ripe for you
    as time and age
    demand your soul.

    Not your next of kin I be
    Even though
    singly I be your folk
    And my allegiance pledged
    For I …
    Will not smite humanity
    Or whatever breathes along
    But I
    Will let time and age
    Possess the sickle
    With which to reap the due.

    Countless seasons behind
    You had dusted the earth
    With pure venom
    Drunk by every nostril
    Which you stuck your tag.

    Time has failed you, but once
    And your fangs
    have anchored you too.

    Feel the itch and slip
    So that life…
    Will know no more pain.

    As I Wrestle Death

    If I die my death today
    In the midst of the duel
    It must be my pelvic
    That would slip
    And cede me to death.

    But if
    I stand-up to time
    And shoulder it along
    I surely
    Will smite death
    Deed deep down the drain...

    Lurk somewhere
    And scan clear
    This duel of death and me
    I am certain to prevail.

    New poem, not so sure about it: 3
    comment, about what you think c:

    A caged human being-
    is what she claims.
    to flee the clutches of high authority
    to finally smile and laugh with the majority.

    But instead she is caged
    the fear of her leaning from the corrupted outraged.

    So she obeys,
    believing what they convey,
    but still all she longs
    is for a day set free from this...
    Dreadful Cage.

    Please read my poems and comment
    Here is one

    He made her happy
    He made her fly
    But she turned him down
    So will he ever try
    She was so scared
    He will break her heart
    Not to do that he sweared
    But still she push them apart
    She was too shy
    To edmitt to her self
    He wondered why
    He thinks she doesn't love him
    But he is all that's on her mind
    all night and all day
    Their conversations she rewind
    But still deny what her heart say
    She is afraid
    Her heart will be broken
    And no one will come to her aid
    And to the harsh reality she will be woken
    She won't let go of her shell
    Not matter how. Hard he tries to break through
    So will she allow her self in to his love well
    Or will he move on without the love he never knew
    Will let her go
    Like many others and lose hope
    Or will he fight to know
    The deep love that he will cherish and protect..

    Please leave your comments :) :) ;)

    Oceanic Boundlessness ~ a Shakespearean sonnet

    Laying awake upon drifting daydreams,
    Holding closely to thy pieces of gold
    Wast'd along some slow, shallow, low streams;
    With those lonely little tides to be sold

    Whisper gently as thou send rains to fall;
    Give me only dregless amounts of sand
    And grasp this voice dearly after you call,
    Chasing shorelines for years, finding no land

    Thine sun has fell within shifting blue seas
    Alone; making islands for thy sewn heart
    Strand'd near the quiet flow of a breeze,
    Whilst this lost love of yours now does depart:

    O, do not fret, for night shall bring us moons
    To rest; sleeping atop silver wash'd dunes

    Recollect when we drink from the
    Same tea
    And feast on the same meal.
    Recollect our moon light dream,
    When I call, you talk like
    Words are too small to express
    Your love.
    Recollect when we hold hands to
    The store
    Beside that leveled lawn
    To buy your favorite toys,
    Recollect how I admire your voice
    And your coiled dreadlocks
    That makes me rejoice.
    Recollect whatever the offense
    I always forget, and wouldn't
    Even comment.
    Recollect when you told the
    We where best of friends without
    Full stop
    Recollect as I shared your tears
    When I also wept
    Inside the book shop.
    Recollect as my lips pampered your
    And whispered into my feelings,
    Recollect the avenue we first
    You wore this avocado green
    With that black skirt, and
    Looked exactly as my princess.
    Recollect that very song that
    Made your eyes melt,
    Recollect when my shoulder
    Used to be your head rest.
    Please Recollect,
    You promised to be my jewel.
    Today, you push your face to the
    And destroy my name inscribed
    On your chest,
    Will I ever see you again?
    Where on earth will
    I meet your blend?

    Would you still be my friend?

    When You Walked Away

    I view life through a broken heart
    It broke the day we finally part.
    But as I tried to say goodbye
    I felt my heart begin to cry.

    Then instantly I felt its pain
    It shattered when you walked away.
    The tears began to fill my eyes
    There's nothing left but our goodbyes.

    With no more reasons left to try
    You walked away and left me lies.
    The thoughts of you throughout the day
    Now brings my broken heart such pain.

    It's jaded now and filled with hate
    Held together with some tape.
    My heart is scared and not the same
    It shudders when I hear your name.

    You've slowly beat me down with time
    And dimmed the light I used to shine.

    Stronger Than Cancer, Bob

    I felt different, a little tired
    worn out, ill here and there
    visit the Doctor, did some test
    took some picture, waited for the results
    A spot in me started small, got bigger
    Time will tell, not a good sign
    here came the shock
    the bad word no one wants
    but I take it stride cause i can beat it.
    I am strong, I have will, the power to go on
    my new slogan Stronger Than Cancer
    no one will beat me down
    I will grow old, see my boys grow
    see them wed, see their kids
    I will not give, , no matter when
    Stronger Than Cancer
    hope will rally, cures to be found
    Meds to take, no fakes
    I will survive, fight for life
    pain will never go, mind so strong
    prays needed, prayers answered
    the fight never ends, I will not bend
    till the end. I am Stronger Than Cancer
    Thanks Brothers, Sisters, Friends and Mother
    for the love of me.I will survive
    Strong Than Cancer, Bob
