Below you will find a few poems that I have written.

Conceit

The anger ticks away inside,
Like a bomb waiting to explode.
You lit the fuse with your harsh words
And now you can do nothing but wait.
What are you waiting for?
Are you waiting for me to explode?
Will my tears and screams shake the walls?
Will my surpressed emotions burst out uncontrollably?
Or maybe you think I will implode,
That I'll self destruct and leave you alone.

The Elements

The sun strokes my skin
like my lovers hand
Its light warms my body
like no man can.

The rain from the sky
like my lovers tears
It clears away my thoughts
I have no fears.

The wind whispers in my ear
like my lovers voice.
I do whatever it tells me to
I have no choice.

The fire burns in my soul
like my lovers eyes.
It warms me from the inside
producing pleasure-filled cries.

For My Mother

Is she not God,
She who gave me life,
Fed me of her body?

Is she not God,
She who saved my life,
Led me back to the path when I went astray?

If she is not God,
What do I call her?
For she has given unconditional love
when I was not deserving,
For she has understood my words
even those I am too scared to speak.
She has seen my highest highs
and my lowest lows,
Yet still claims me as one of her children.

She has seen me fail,
She has seen me succeed.
Yet still claims me as one of her children.

And when I sin against her,
she sheds tears to cleanse my soul.

Is she not God,
She who gave me life,
Fed me of her body?

Is she not God,
She who saved my life,
Led me back to the path when I went astray?

If she is not God,
What do I call her?
For I can feel her arms around me,
keeping me safe from harm.
For I can hear her soothing voice,
praying to heaven to protect me while I am away.

She has seen me confused and enlightened,
She has seen me proud and ashamed,
Yet still claims me as one of her children.

And when I sin against her,
she sheds tears to cleanse my soul.

Is she not God,
She who gave me life,
Fed me of her body?

Is she not God,
She who saved my life,
Led me back to the path when I went astray?

No, she is not God.
I call her mother.
