New Dreams



On the other side

Of defense

Is a rise

Of despair

Suffering can’t find

Restored faith

After the fall

 No beginning

And no end

We float amiss

The grey skies

A broken dream

Searching for

A new meaning



Broken Dreams


I’ve got to hit the road

Carrying a heavy load

Don’t mind if I travel slow

I’m on a quest

To find somewhere quaint

To rest my weary heart

Been a long time coming

‘Cause trying to save love

Can tear the dreamer apart

My mind pleas for peace

My heart pleas for love

My soul pleas for freedom

All achieved through truth

The truth shall set me free

It’s what I seek on my journey

Greed has made it challenging

When it should be quite easy

Dear broken heart, be free



In search of a bubble


Your shallowness

Is charming

Because it’s innocently blind


You’re endearingly blissful 

In the bubble

You live in


Untainted by reality

Enjoy that

Unscathed fantasy


If possible

Make room for two

Let me join you




Heart Art


My art is
My Words

And that starts
And it ends
In my heart

My heart
Is my art




Soul Windows

Piling on
Mascara layers
And heavy, dark eyeliner

To bring life
To her eyes
Since they’re dead inside

Dear Lover


And so
Our lips met
In between
Reality and fantasy

A kiss
Long remembered
For forthcoming
Salacious stories

A love affair
Only intensely risqué
To satisfy
Insatiable appetites



Cosmic Lovers


I can see
The stars
In your eyes
Got lost inside
A distant galaxy
Supernova blast wave
Consumed by
The fallacy
Of a fiery
Venus love
In a heart
As cold
As mars
Deeply staring
Into a vast
Blank space
While dreaming
Of a place
In the cosmos
That is ours



Get lost in me



I needed someone

To love

My every quirk

To find

My eccentricities


To live

In my reality

Not theirs

And whose sanity


Every drip

Of my insanity

To survive



Overcoming Insecurities


Problems arise where our insecurities lie.

This thought was provoked when a well-to-do person crossed my path. I thought to myself, “I bet they never worry about having the ability and qualities and talents needed to achieve financial success” which led me to believe that it’s because they are not insecure about having what it takes to get money, a lot of it. Whereas, someone else, may question their abilities, talents and gifts to offer the world, and because they don’t feel worthy, they emanate that to others and are treated that way, getting in the way of their own self.

Insecurities can be self-destructive, as well as catastrophic to any encompassing relationships albeit family, love, or friends. The woman who has felt betrayal and can never fully trust any man she’s in a relationship with causing her to provoke fights, over-think every situation and be on a constant search for a truth she doesn’t really want to find. Or the man who has felt betrayal so never completely commits to anyone, always having 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th options as backup, or is just a serial dater.

On the flip side, they can be the reason we overcompensate in one area. The chubby kid turned body builder, always trying to prove to himself that he’s not that fat little boy… but never quite getting rid of the “fat boy” image and accompanying condescending self-talk in his mind. The little girl who grew up in poverty and never had what the other kids had, so she never lost sight of money, ignoring every other aspect of her life and is now sitting in wealth… all alone. And probably partaking in a dangerous vice (alcohol or drug abuse; promiscuity, gambling, etc.)

Perception is what will determine whether we drown in insecurities or have unparalleled success because of them. While to completely rid of insecurities is not an easy goal to attain, that should always be something we work toward. We want abundance in emotional and mental health, and overcoming those insecurities so that they aren’t constantly nagging your innermost self (therefore being the sole reason behind your every action) is ideal. It’s never good to be controlled by insecurities whether the result is paramount success or utter dwelling and resentment in an underachieving life. Because, in neither of those is there lasting joy, fulfillment, acceptance of self or honest love from others… the things we need to truly FEEL successful. Granted, if being ruled by insecurities, I’d rather be the one who creates riches over the broke and broken person.

It’s important to acknowledge the root of our insecurities because, all too often, we lose sight of the root of them and continue adding moments of afflictions, collected over the years, onto what eventually becomes our massive, tangled pile of insecurities. Each insecurity intersecting and overlapping the other to the point of becoming one big, nasty, knot. If we deal with our insecurities early on… right after they are created then we will have a lot less work to do later.

Take the time to go through the emotions that come with being hurt/attacked/violated, acknowledge each emotion, feel each one, but do not sit and dwell in any of them. Do not allow yourself to see yourself as a victim because your actions and the way you carry yourself will be that of a victim and people will treat you like a victim. They will pity you, shame you, belittle you and that will only deepen your insecurities.

See yourself as a survivor, a strong enough person to persevere, to overcome this painful situation. Be the person who will not allow pain afflicted on you from someone (who never conquered their own insecurities) or from some circumstance (poverty, etc.) to define you or to make you stagnant or despondent. When you change your perception from victim to triumphant then people will treat you as such, they will respect you, admire you, and be inspired by you. Be your own hero first, and then reach back and be someone else’s hero too.


Find abundance where insecurities die.



Bare. Beach

You play a treacherous game
When lying in love
Obstructing the trust
Once she’s had enough

To your dismay
This provokes transcending ways
She goes for the kill
Once she decides to play

A woman scorned
A good girl mourned
You’ve been forewarned

Consider your bold-faced lies
As mental suicide
As she enters the court
With her vengeance sword
