K

Sad in this moment
But I will be okay
Not so for a friend
His body found at Maracas Bay
Death is a part of life
That is the way
But why murder
I don't know what to say
Tears want to fall
Limbs feel weak
A friend called to tell me
I could barely speak
Now I want to shout
Justice must be served
Find them, try them
Sentence them
Give them what's deserved
But that will not bring him back
He has left us for good
So now to live a grateful life
As I know he would

This Christmas

Oh there is no place like home for the holidays
The smell of bread and ham baking
Music wears me like a smile
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Sorrel boiling for celebration
A star a star dancing in the night
Wrapping pastelles in banana leaves
Tidings of comfort and joy comfort and joy
Holiday cookies sweet bread
Rum punch and poncha creme
Line the pantry shelves
Waiting for Santa
And his little elves
It's late it's almost here
Children tucked away asleep
Silent night holy night
All is calm all is bright
Home spick and span
In your palace warm mighty king
The town is quiet as a whisper
Shall I play for you
Pa rum pum pum pum
Ahh it's done
Last string of bright hung
A song a song high above the trees
Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Sipping spiced tea
Dreaming wishing peace
Sitting in place
Enjoying my memory space
Through the years
We all will be together
If the fates allow
And heaven and nature sing
Santa knows
All I want for Christmas is you

I Smile Today

Too old to dance
Too young to die
Happy when I laugh
Sad when I sigh
Ask me why
I smile today
I lived well
I lived poor
Now I love
Like never before
Rose in bloom
Butterfly flitters
Swan in the puddle
Green fence glitters
Rainbow arches across the sky
Sunshine on the beaches
Earth so sweet
Nature teaches
Live in the moment
Work and play
Let bygones be
On its merry way

Eyes On Me

Suffocating world
Outside my door
Me on the inside
Wanting peace not war
Naked and alone
In my room
Music invites me home
I begin to dance
Soon a trance
I seduce you
You who looks back at me
From the mirror
My reflection my friend
Here we are again
Pose swagger pose
Sex allure
Give 'em more
Hold it
Click click click
Goes my camera phone
Three I took
One for Facebook
Eyes on me

Dream Killer

You're a murderer
Killing dreams and
Beating back beams
Of sparkling light
That is my spirit
Not with it
Standing behind
Shaking your finger
Puncturing my glory
Changing my story
I hate I have to frown
Just to be around
You
Don't know what you do
Your dark cloud crashes
Down on my head
Coloring my essence
Like red dye number two
In my mashed potatoes, yuck
I spent too much time
Thinking about you
So many hours dreaming
About all we'd do
I'm a damn blueberry
I'm blue
Now I'm through
Do you
I'm a fool in a bubble
Pop me like a zit, shit
I can't no more
It's your game
You have high score
It's poker face
Back in line
Again in the race
This time I apply red
To turn my blue head purple
Time to break and take
No love to make
Who got next
I want them on their knees
Sucking out all the hurt
You left me with
Harder faster
Deep throat my woes
Let it run from your nose
Wait I'm not finished
I still have pain
Back in line again
Who next
I'm on a roll
Killing my own dreams
Or so it seems
Sweaty thoughts
And naked ambitions
I'm free
To destroy me
If I wanna

Nobody Has to Know

I can barely see
Locking my front door
I swagger fast to the car
I gotta get some more
Two in the morning
Eyelids sag body hums
I'm on a sweet mission
Anxious for a score
Lil Man on the passenger side
He's geeking shotgun
He wants to ride
Brown bag of cash
Under the seat
Tucked away
Near Lil Man's feet
I'm geeking
I think sixteen minutes or so
Straight left right then right
To get to the candy ho
I'm the driver hands tight at three and nine
Cap pulled down they think
I'm undercover for real
So Lil Man he gonna make the deal
I roll in
Dim lights
Park a half block away
Okay hurry it up I say
Mother love lady snow
I dunno
Why Lil Man tastes the devil inside
Risk a hit take it dead
Well it ain't my head
But I'm geeking freaking
What's taking so long
Lil Man pull your pants up
Come the geek on
Or imma be gone
Can't take the waiting
Get the girls and go
So we can do it
Naked at home
And nobody has to know
Three cars pass
I slide down in my seat
Stomach punches me
Chest drums a new beat
Okay stop sweating
Here comes Lil Man
Face twisted hand balled in a fist
He says let's go
He opens his wrist
Eyes big like full moons
Candy from the candy store
I speed home to seven one five
Jeans hit the floor
As we hit the door
We ready
We ready to go some more
