You lost your last back and me - poetry
I will never think twice nor will I roll the dice When it comes to my life I will take my Grannio's advice
You play the hand you're dealt when it comes to who will be your Dad - But if you bluff about a card's face value for too many years you fail to remember you had - No Aces or King of Hearts in your creative deck - But instead a worthless Joker-So Wild and Mad. . .
You can ask manually why for an added 20 years but you'll never appreciate how a Joker has no fears. . .
Not about bringing up the rear his kids, his abandon nor his wife- Why ought to he care or aid them No be important how many times they saved his life?
When you're a wild card like him you at all times put manually first above your breed and contacts They're not crucial of course. . . Apart from when you NEED THEM - Then they're not such a curse. . .
They owe you something you ask even if they have to empty their purse. . . To save The Joker from his most recent tricks - No Be of importance How Many Times His Wild Ways Lead to DUI, Jail, Fines Or Fault To Be a Father. . .
They Must Acknowledge Certainty Where A Child Pays. . . The Perpetual Price - For The At hand Their Parents Gave Them - A Gift From God Not Man - It's Called The Right To Life. . .
I didn't ask to be born - nor to have you for My Dad But I'll Be Damned If I Didn't Run To Your Rescue No Be important WHEN, WHERE, OR HOW BAD - Your Predicaments Again and again Proved To Be. . .
I'd Hide My Tears And Swallow My Fears But I NEVER WALKED AWAY OR LEFT YOU Killing NOT ONCE IN MORE THAN 20 YEARS. . .
You'd Fill My Mind With Reasons Why. . . You Got Arrested or Didn't Come See Me There Was Continually A New Lie - To Make Me Have faith in It Wouldn't Come about Again
Your Promises Lasted For A Week or A Month. . . But They Were Conked out So Many Times - That I Closed Listening or Believing - You And Your Endless List of Lines. . .
I Loved You As You Were My Dad THE ONLY Priest I'D EVER HAVE I Sought after To Stop Hurting So Bad And I Put My Faith In You. . .
Foolishly Believing That You'd Find A Way To Show Me The Same Unqualified Love and Aid Somehow. . . Some Way. . . Some Day. . .

An Old Wood Pile [a poem with notes]
Old skin, once held tight Against her skeleton- Rose no more, just draped Loosely over unpadded flesh; Un-tightened muscles, and tissue, Lost its courage, no-fortitude-, Gone are the days and years That stood aligned with the Indomitable elements; The skeleton, now a landmark Hidden under flesh and blood Guts and moral fiber, backbone? Collapsed from drudgery Time, time: cascading inside-. Bones now goodbye impressions Accepting fate Like imperfect silver!.

Three Poems and Paradise Lost [One for Hell, One for Heaven one for an Inca King]
The Fast-moving water of HellHell's furnace- Likened to a chimney Vomits her torrents Of flames- Into the air Through earths crust And the earth's trembles-!Agitated, she projects A thick curtain of smoke To heat the feet of those Who provoke her every wish. Like molten iron She waits for the soul(the moment) Then molds, into her enclosure Human serpents? Out of savage flesh!No storm, no struggle No eruption, no typhoon, Just a terrible phenomenon, Hell is able of producing; And upon death, Back into the Abyss They melt!.

Its What She Didnt Say
When I hear your voice classified my head it makes me think of you every free day as I fight back tears of desolation and awe if you're okayMy life is empty devoid of you I wish time would take away the pain but the ache in my heart persists and my down-to-earth hopes seem in vainI appreciate how much I hurt you and now I know it's too late to tell you how sorry I am and be expecting you not to hateI don't deserve a be with ability to show you how much I care when you desired me the most I know I futile to be thereNow your trust in me is gone evermore and I will never have the ability to say I especially hope your dreams come true and happiness finds you every dayI would give more or less everything in life if I could go back to that day and erase the whole lot I said and did to make your despair go awayWhat hurts the most is this is what you didn't say and the lack of these words haunt me each and every day..

Memoirs of a Wastelands Rim [a Poem: now in Spanish and English]
Memoirs of a Wasteland's RimIt still was light when she paused at the wasteland's rim- Over, the rim rest like a sleeping brute, a stiff frame Adjacent to the blue where early stars hung like oil lamps Hanging from old beams and shade?the impassive frame Her traction fixed the beams, as she had fallen onto it Alone, she watched the forenoon, climbing about her A tramp woman, conspicuous by life, and diagonal dreams With advent of hurt and molded muscle on her face Her assume engraved anti the inexpressive frame, She tried to jump, and lost her balance, execution like a bird Now sipping the gloom in the ledge and devastated hopes She yielded ahead of the slothful early payment of sunset Blood dripped, with her dying darkness And a cherry moon hurled a flame across The dim clouds, burning all the way through the sky The beset sky above her?Crossing the valley's floor her eye enthralled it Rocky images, main points Thrusting herself up confidently from to the ledge The painted break of day blushed over the rim Her brows and nose, face anti the stone stone Massive injuries was charming form, Her figure hovering so languorously crossways the sun It was too great a task-to die alone?she wished now She had not jumped?a thousand feet below, yet to go.

When they found her, her face was courageous of falling.
