The map on my heart

The scars and jagged lines that you see
on my poor beat-up heart, look just like ones on
a road map showing the many paths, roads
and highways that I have taken throughout
my life, take this one that curves around
the south or bottom of my heart that is when I
met a woman down in California I fell in love
got married had two kids (my oldest boys) and tried
to make a living but somehow we got lost and ended
on two different roads and directions yet
even today after all of these many years I still
have a love for her with the beat of my heart,
then when I was not looking I veered off
the main road down a dirt path that had
been traveled by few there I stopped to
quench my thirst listening to the band that
was playing they were called Winslow and
they were damn good, then I saw her, she
was standing up by the bar so I walked
over and introduced myself and the next
thing I know we were headed to Reno to
start our new life down another road where
again not too long afte…

I may not know

I may not know a whole lot about anything and I know not what I am doing most of the time and no matter how long I have tried or even how hard I will never know  a damn thing about woman or life that's all I need to say but I do know money can never buy you love and  I know that I should not think about all that  I had lost back in the past or even the things today  that I do not have while worrying about the  very few that I do, especially knowing already  that they will never last anyways for very long, so what I need to really do in my life is to try very  hard to always remember that the only things  that ever should really matter are all of our  precious memories along with all of those  people who have somehow or in some way no  matter how much or even little touched our hearts  who will until forever ends always live deep down within  our souls becoming just a little bit a part of who  I am or who we are to take with us into all of the  eternity while the sands of time go …

Broken Glass

Broken Glass
I am haunted by painful memories
of demons in the shattered fragments,
I still remember my littered past,
living in my nightmares through the
dreams they now all cast watching
shadows as they dance around me on the
walls of this empty home, being cast
by the burning fires that are
still completely out of control for
a rage of passion wanted that was never
known, listening to the silence of
the teardrops as they fall from the
absence of joy or laughter that
never makes a sound, looking for a hint
of light knowing that only darkness is
around, where life once lived death now
follows consuming everything that abounds
while the voices in my head get louder
causing chaos to ensue confusion
in my mind of right or wrong starts causing
me to sin, as ink now spilled drips with blood
from the sharp tip of my pen, walking
down the dirty streets just waiting for
the end hoping to find some proof of life
finding only regret and sorrow deep into
the night in a wo…

Back in the days

Back in the days Back in the days when I was younger, I can still
very much remember being so carefree and happy
smiling all the time, then a little later even older
back before I had left my roots and moved to
Texas, I was laughing while having fun always
trying hard to have a great time, I was the life of
the party, the guy who knew everybody and
everyone knew me, but then something happened
somewhere in between here right now and there
back then when the darkness came in covered
up my light, along loneliness did too all mixed in
with a deep sadness that I know for sure as soon
as I crossed the border coming from New Mexico
I was somehow in some ways cursed by the devil
himself bent overused shunned by God angel
abused that's where I must have entered the fiery
pits of Hell itself, you see for being pretty smart at
least that is what they say it seems to me that i
am actually quite the opposite in reality, for I am
nothing more than letters written across my head
written for those to read that sai…

Forever know the tune

Forever know the tune
Baby, I need you to know that you are
in reality, only a leftover memory or just
a little piece of my past still breathing 
deep down inside of me, almost like a
song or melody one you hear it seems
stuck inside of your head all day long
everywhere you go hearing it either as
whistle or maybe somebody is humming
the tune like the music notes are just
floating along right there in the air and
even though you may not remember all
the words to the song, I will always and
forever know the tune as it is always
playing over inside of my mind or it could
be a piece of very beautiful poetry that
was crafted by a Poet with an extraordinary
ability to see inside of humanity one that
will move you to laugh and or cry as you
can feel every single word along with all
of the emotions causing you sadness,
anger, fear, and love that really and truly
felt as if you were actually standing right
there at that very moment in time living it
as he was spilling all of his ink coming
from somewhere down deep …
