Love of Poetry 

YOU’RE LIKE MUSIC
A MIGHTY MIND OF MUSIC 
SIMPLE NOTES LIKE A SILENT HOUSE ON A HILL 
A HOUSE FULL OF LOVE STORIES WITH TWISTED ENDINGS 
YOUR LYRICS AIM TO PLEASE 
WHILE I ENGAGE IN ITS TEASE 
YOU’RE LIKE THE BLOWING OF COOL WIND 
THE BALMY EVENING BREEZE 
YOUR FORMS OF DEVOTIONS
REPRESENTS MY EMOTIONS 
THE ONLY LIBERATION 
TO MY DELIBERATION 
THE MORE I INJECT MYSELF 
I AM BECOMING A DRUNKEN POET 
BREATHING TOO MUCH OF YOU 
PONDERING A WONDERFUL MUSE
LIKE THE REDNESS OF RUBY 
MY HEART PRECIOUSLY BLEEDS FOR YOU 
LIKE A MYSTERY FULL OF BEAUTY 
YOU’RE LIKE A DREAM THAT IS A REALITY 
YOU’RE AN EXPRESSION THAT I MUST EXPRESS
THE WORDS THAT SPEAKS TO MY SOUL 
NO NEED FOR DEFINITIONS
YOU’RE THE RIGHT FORMATION TO MY SATISFACTION 
I AM AN ADDICT, AN ADDICT FOR POETRY 
HOLDING ME DOWN DEEPER THEN DARKNESS 
ENLIGHTENING ME BRIGHTER THEN LIGHT 
OVERDOSE ME WITH THE TRUTH OF FREE STYLE POETRY 
ARE YOU LISTENING, I HOPE YOU’RE LISTENING                                                                                                    


I Am ADDICTED TO THE LOVE OF POETRY

Hallucination

Gray shadow

only attempts to burst out this flame

Puts on a mask just to expose this girl

No name yet she has a face

She’ll give you love, pure fascination

The greatest hallucination

Another figment of your imagination

Don’t try to redeem yourself

Red heels, red dress, red lips,

She’s like a moving photograph

Like frozen music in your mind

You are immortalize in a bath of lies

She sees your determination

Another parade of perception

This is just another delusion

It’s a one way street to perdition

No time for this critical decision

A girl In a disguised face

Her pride outweighs her grace

The hours will flow

In this madness you will go

This is just an hallucination

The Demon in Me

Love took me hostage

And I never got to see its face

There’s nothing worse

There’s nothing better

Yet the scars remained

Veins of the winter

The thought of love took me over

As darkness came closer

With this desire to murder

Every men who wished to be my lover

The nights held their breath

As the rules of love turned to death

I had the devil’s black heart

I had his tormented soul

To prevent myself from weeping

I had to live free from my feelings

I loved with such strong emotions

I cared with pure devotions

It only bought pain and tears

The shame and fear

In this darkness I chose to live

With this demon in me

Who’s pen I wrote this poem

Who’s blood was the ink of my paper

With words that poisoned like venom

They came glowing with lust and crashed love to dust

Love only saw the picture

Love never understood the unfolded stories

Now the cold truth has awoken me

You made me what I was

You made me who I am
