Rock and Roll Roots

the beats of the past

are coinciding

with the power of the future

currently residing

on the inside

slipping and sliding

through my emotions

rocking and riding

in and out of my memories

trying to decide

what to teach

and what to hide

where to go

and what is the time… Read full post »

Humidity and Fertility

a cloudy day

      ripe with humidity

  the sticky sense

                       of humility

            fading into the sea

  washed away with the sunset

The Deep South

Deeper than the Deepest South


the smell of the inevitable rain

the wind blowing the tendrils

covering my eyes

blinding my time

wisking me back to another will

another rhyme

when I was alone on the front porch

of life

rocking back and forth on a white-washed memory… Read full post »

mis corazones

tu corazon late

aparte

pero muy fuerte

inside of me

I created you

y ahora

eres parte de mi

y yo siempre

sera parte de ti

meditation

  I can feel the frustration

the inevitable sensation

             searching for motivation

      to change my situation

but I cannot leave

   all that I've created

 once, my spirit soared

appearances

nothing is ever as it seems

something is real

but I'm not sure

where to find the reality

in myself

or in your words

of falsity

tired of being

what you think

you should be seeing

because it's up to me

to make reality 

out of my dreams

Internal Conversation

it's like any news.

I tell you

and you care 

for a little bit

but I'm not there

for any of it

and it seems

you quickly forget

 

long time ago

I realized

that life was mine

     mine to live myself

     mine to tell myself

mother-to-be

the sunset is redundant

so damn beautiful

every moment

it falls

until it disappears

and the cotton candy colors fade

with my daily emotions

where they promenade

with desire

to see the sun on fire

exploding within my mind

creating hope for things to come

waiting to go blind

ready for… Read full post »

Quantum Physics

QUANTUM PHYSICS –

there’s a fog upon my mind

        an eternal haze of humid love

    engulfing me from behind

reigning from the subterranean lair

       with a mindful watchman above

the alarm

life put me on this path

i was unaware

of the destination

until i found an interesting stimulation

explaining all that i know

to be explained

within the terms of surreality

where life controls me

and i am just a figment

in someone else's dream

but when you wake up… Read full post »

on the road (not kerouacs)

here.

it's yours for the taking

now.

it's mine for the breaking 

ready to defy

for i'm not ready to be vacant.

i want to see the light

and feel a little vagrant

remember how it used to be

when life was just a daydream?

now it's on the path… Read full post »

when everything is good

and happiness abounds

I seem to really lose

fiction

half my life

been trying to decide

if the line

in my mind

of ethics and right

is black or white

but i never properly realized

that somewhere among the divide

that is neither and both

at the same time

is where i've always resided

tucked away in my little contradiction… Read full post »

To Be And Not To Be

im staring at me

one of the strangest, most complicated beings

 

wondering who it is

i'm looking at

the naughty little reflection

evades my closer inspection

until I catch it in the eyes

it is quite clear

that she is me and not at all 

at the same time

a path along the spiral

the world shifts

and my place remains

in different hemispheres

upsidedown is near

both past and future are clear

but it's the present 

 that i fear

because i know not how

to get me there

into dependence

there i am

in the middle of the sea

floating on faith

and living off love

until with a wild call

the wave comes crashing down

destroying the idealism

that has penetrated the darkest depths of me

forcing the realization

that depending on others

is necessary to get what i need… Read full post »

to go or not to go

a decision to be made

a future laying right ahead

and i'm standing here

wondering how to get in the game

to jump on the track

to something i didn't want 

but now seems like suddenly

all arrows point to go 

and the world hazes to green

inside my mind

live your poems

immersed among such an idioma romantica, you'd think I could be a bit more poetica. but it's such a lazy culture... viva sus poemas, no solo las escriba.

melt into my mind

melt into my mind. in my head, deep inside. until you can't because the darkness leaves you blind. because that's where i'm at. waving and crying. watching time dying. waiting for my turn in line. bust out of the conventional design. live in a different dimension. elevated way of thinking. above… Read full post »

the sandbar

the nothingness surrounds our island

we are one

I had resigned myself

  a journey into the cranium

opposites attract

sometimes i look at you

and i realize

you are everything i am not

but everything that i am

is in love

with what you got

so mix my white with your black

your front with my back

and make me react

because it has always been said

that opposites attract… Read full post »

love swallowed me and digested me and spit me out into this new world. where it´s not just me. but him. it´s us. and now that the romanticism has faded and we both seem a little bit more crazy...sometimes i wonder what it is i´m doing. here in this other culture.… Read full post »
