Poetry

Double yearning

Double yearning
Conflicting needs and wants this heart
It’s erotic wants both of love’s start
Down and down this dirty kneels
I want both this love and agony steals

Too simple but the cause unknown
The pain still stands and kneels alone
All and all the darkness rides
Agonized now the clenched hand confides

She is not perfect

She is not perfect
It’s a real shame, the important key
Physicality wrong outside of me
I want it to be more, more emotional
More connected, it’s not optional

Devastating it is, deeply saddening
The why question is just maddening
I love her, I love her real and honestly
But my reaction now is of distance and modesty

The Lie

The Lie
Well, here we are again, the lie
Options made and options given by
It’s all real and the heart beats tenderly
But now the options collide spiritually

All are different and all are special
Sink into them all, no mind to settle
It’s not fear, it’s feeling that confuses
For my love and pleasure the heart uses

She is Not Perfect

She is Not Perfect

It’s a real shame, the important key
Physicality wrong outside of me
I want it to be more, more emotional
More connected, it’s not optional

Devastating it is, deeply saddening
The why question is just maddening
I love her, I love her real and honestly
But my reaction now is of distance and modesty

I Want You – Third Eye Blind

I Want You
Smoldering night and the mind spins
A pretty girl moves with mind of sins
Lust and lust’s might grants no harm
Dark, dark hearts open up to love warm

Agony, honesty, vulnerability in her eyes
The air breathes and touch glistens sighs
That touch, that moment of dark alarms
No love, no end, it lasts forever in her arms

Laundromat – New York City, 191st st.

Laundromat
Humble place of washing machines
People waiting having paid their fees
A tearful soap opera the TV rabbles
Laundry spinning with wild wet bubbles

Wet laundry sits taciturn untended
Dryers spinning with heat fire lended
An odd feeling, this place of calm
We really are all the same in this life’s qualm

Taco More – Austin, Texas

Taco More
The food is just so good
Never thought it possible could
Perfect combinations and flavors
All one can do is smile and savor

Quick to order and receive
Or a sit down dinner to relieve
A part of something special I feel
A culture lovely felt in a meal
