24 hours- Part II

Taking a moment to slow it down
memories flood, flash back, vision and sound
24 with you, arms of a clock make two rounds
always precious, time a golden crown
i wear on my head, only take it down
for those who don’t deserve my frown

and those 24 hours with you
i remember every detail, clear like
a cloudless sky, what magestic sight
when birds fly, mouths sigh
because this winter was cold
as usual, never gets old
a relief from frozen rivers
slush, muddy ice
slippery slide
soil, young sprouts
spring is tight

your body, warm next to mine
comforting tides
of tender loving by my side
a reunion- that particular night
i returned home
away from home
your skin, color and texture
different from mine
fingers lace, we intertwine
two different worlds come together
for a celebration, of
precious twenty four hours
spirits drank and spirits soared
taut sails, headed for sunrise
after a passionate ride, all night
moans and cries
muffled sounds of
feeling nice
tender loving
for you inside

morning coffee
pancakes and omlettes
our eyes meet, during
several quiet moments
a full conversation
cuz i read body language
like a doctoral dissertation
and the way you move
tells me you enjoy
us being together
24 hours, stolen minutes
silent speeches
don’t wake the tenants
when we taste each other
mangos and peaches

Time to leave, time to breathe
each on our own, temporarily
see you soon
away from home
I should say it now
before you go
I never had to
give up my heart
it was yours
from the very start



48 hours
with you
entire weekend
us two
sailing out
to blue
nothing around
nothing to lose
gentle waves, easy breeze
they are you
rocking me to sleep
while i look up to see
a clear sky with countless stars
they blink
and i sink
deep in thought
deep and true
thoughts of you

I Cant

i want to cry
bc i just realized
my previous poem
i need him to show love
in times like these
kiss and hold you
give you some peace
times like these
i need him to do his job
love and affection
for you, more than enough
bc knowing that
can save me from this agony
of not knowing
how you are doing
the pain youre feeling
physically and emotionally
i need him to do that
and writing about him
brings back a familiar pain inside
he needs to be love
and right now i cant, i cant.
while i say that
i cry


I fell so deep
into you
and that pit
left me so helpless
when you got hurt
I fell again
this time
my stomach dropped
when you told me what happened
a punch drew close
and swung hard
someone covered my mouth
and nose
stole my breath
stole my voice
i couldnt help
couldnt do anything
i feel so helpless
i cant be there for you
i want to take away your pain
put it on me instead
i need him to do his job
put his arms around you
even if i need to step away
my love
its not about me
but all i want to do
is to be next to you
and do everything, anything i can
to get you through the night

Hooked Up

got me hooked up
our lips lock
torso tense up
every muscle
every nerve
impulse, waves shock
electric stare down
memories flood
through my black crown
fingers through hair
defiance in air
you pin me down
my arms around
your back, i try to switch
cater to our dispositions
two tops, love bugs
chemistry, reactions to
your glazed look
they dont teach this in textbooks
your eyes
burn with fire
match my desire
to taste you with entire
mouth, tongue, and teeth
fingers glide
smooth, no quick
casual exit
Im working on
giving you some deep
loving before the night is over
and you leave
to sleep
get work ready
for tomorrow


eternal sunshine
you light me up
like heat and tobacco bind
fire at the tip
smoke up, ash drip
red, yellow, orange
flickering flame, familiar yet strange
when you say
this is home away
from home
i get chills
and my blood spills
from the inside out
you turn my world upside down
and i dont stop spinning
because you keep winning
this game called love
youve got my heart
you got me hooked up
to what you have to offer
this is a love letter
because its hard for me to speak my mind
its difficult to share whats inside
but im trying
youve got to believe me
you changing me for the better
you got me going for more
than what i had before
i want to move forward
with you. close the door
kiss you, and kiss you
bc its you i adore
