DARK RAGE

Like a hyena,
Waiting in the dark,
To scarvenge,
On another’s prey.

Like a shark,
Waiting in silence,
For the right moment,
To attack,
And let bleed.

Like a thief,
In the night,
Attacks and dissapers.

Paralyzed I am,
Surcummed I am not,
Don’t forget,
I lay in wait.

WHO AM I?

I am a woman,
I am a mother,
I am somebody’s lover.

Society defines me,
Culture controls me,
Nature nurtures me.

My body is not my own,
My heart is for everybody to own,
My soul is torn between both worlds.

I strive for perfection,
Through imperfection,
The sands of time,
Engrained in me.

I loose a part of me,
Every month,
What God gave me,
Goes back to the ground.

I belong to everybody,
Yet to nobody,
I am not my own,
From the moment I was born.

PURE….. TAINTED

It is over,
You are gone,
Never to come back.
She loved you,
Your lives are separate,
Lives untwined,
It was good,
While it lasted.
She will never regret
Despite the lies,
As you walk down the aisle,
The woman who gave her heart,
Out of purity
Out of love,
If she had a choice
She would stab you in the heart.
This is the beginning of the end
A new chapter in her life.
Nothing but a bad memory,
Never to be treasured.

TASTE

In secret I taste,
Outside I detest,
I can relate,
What I cannot hate.

It is not mine,
Yet I want more,
What I cannot have
I strive to get.

Out of hand,
Out of reach,
My minds made up,
I want to eat.

In my mind,
In my heart,
What is good or evil?
I choose to keep.

LETTING GO

Sitting in a room,
Glass mirrors all around,
All I see is you,
Yours my reflection.

No words can say,
What we are really feeling,
There is so much emotion
So much to say.

The silence cuts like a knife,
Your expression says it all,
Sorry will not work this time.

I thought this would last forever,
From basic friendship,
To emotional friendship,
This is not fair,
I want to scream,
The words won’t come out.

Tears stream down my face,
I know I have made a mistake,
Probably one of the biggest in my life,
I am too proud to say I am sorry.

We turn and walk away,
Your expression says it all,
This time I know it is for real,
There is no turning back.

I have to close that door,
Turn my back and let go,
You will never be mine,
I will never be yours.

I close the door,
Put away the key,
A tear streams down my face,
Knowing it could never be.

As I let go of the pain,
The urge and temptation,
We will never be.

REALITY

Like a brick wall,
Reality set in,
I should have seen it,
We would never be.

My heart,
My Soul,
My all,
Will always be yours.

You treat me like dirt,
Ignore me,
Call me when you want me,
My heart is done.

I will always love you,
You have a special place,
In reality,
You and I will never be.

Like a dream,
You are gone,
Like the wind,
You didn’t last.

I have been silent,
For too long,
It is time,
I moved on.

WHAT IS LOVE?

Does love lie?
Does love watch u die?
Does love leave u in the cold?
Does love make u cry?
Does love watch u fall?
Does love give u ultimatums?
Does love walk away when u need it the most?
Does love lie and scheme to get what it wants?
Does love kick u when u r down?
I would love to know.
What is love?

LIPS

It was good,
It felt so real,
I was drawn,
Like a bee,
Ready to get nectar.

So luscious,
They speak their own language,
So addictive,
So tantalizing.

They taste like,
Chocolate,
Strawberry,
Raspberry,
All fused into one.

My body tingles,
My fingers twiddle,
My breasts are drawn to the middle,
Like an addict,
I can’t resist a little.

Mmmm,
Give me more,
My body can’t resist no more,
I’ve tasted many flavors,
None is as good as yours.

FRIENDSHIP

Like a boomerang,
You throw it
And if it comes back,
It is for keeps

Like a garden,
You plant,
And cultivate,
Weed,
Then harvest.

Like a book,
You read the first chapter,
If it is interesting
You keep it,
If not,
You toss it in the bin.

Like a flower,
In the garden,
You pluck it,
Without constant watering,
It withers and dies.

Like the ocean,
It is calm,
In a storm,
It roars and rocks the boat.

CRUMBS

Everything crumbles,
Everyday is a hustle
Every waking moment
Is a nightmare.

Wishing she could get away,
Just for a day,
Wishes every hour,
Would pass,
In the blink of an eye.

Her problems,
Her issues,
Her tears,
Are running dry.

Her life,
Is like crumbs,
Scattered,
In the dust.

BITS AND PIECES

I have held my heart,
I have held my tongue,
I am through,
I won’t wait.

I have stood on the sidelines,
Watched you wine and dine,
Listened to your stories,
As you talk about your conquests.

I walk in your shadow,
I embrace the pain,
I stand by you in hell,
And never forsake you.

With nothing to spare,
With nothing to gain,
These bites and pieces,
I will never gain.

LAST NIGHT

Last night,
I woke up in a sweat,
I dreamt you were,
By my side.

It was so real,
Every minute detail,
Is engrained,
In my memory.

We couldn’t keep our hands,
Off each other,
It was so hot,
We were on fire.

The passion,
The emotion,
The love,
Made it awesome.

A shiver runs down my spine,
When I remember your kiss,
I can’t help but reminisce,
Our last night of passion.

MALOUCA……..QUEM E?

Ask her who she is?
She can’t remember
Her memory is vivid,
Like a broken mirror.

Multiple personalities,
Define her,
Men and Women,
Avoid her.

People deny,
They knew her,
When they had her,
They loved her…..

They partied,
They laughed,
In sorrow and disgrace,
They deny her.

Into the shadows
They disappear
The loneliness,
Torments her.

TWISTED

My blood,
Runs cold,
At the mention,
Of your name.

My tears,
Turn to ice,
When I think,
Of you.

When I look,
In the mirror,
Your reflection,
Turns to dust.

I carve your name,
In stone,
As a constant reminder,
Of pain,
Forever.......

CROSSROADS

Like a bird in a cage,
The sun waiting to rise,
The prisoner behind the walls….

I feel trapped,
I am suspended in space,
I can’t feel the ground…..

Just before the end,
The hour before the sun rises,
Like the beginning,
Before the end….

At crossroads,
This is so hard,
It cuts like a knife………….

EX

I came across your letters,
Our love was pure,
Awesome and innocent.

As I sit and reminisce,
The world was our play ground,
All that mattered was us.

Mama said you were not good,
I should have listened,
I was too in love with love.

You were my first,
In your arms
I became a woman,

Your kiss,
Paralyzed me,
Your love,
Controlled me.

Distance tore us apart,
Slowly grew apart,
Got entwined,
In our separate lives.

EVERYTIME

Every time I hear the song,
Every time I hear the cords,
Every time I hear the tune,
I think of you.

Every cord that plays,
Every note he sings,
Every string he strums,
I think of you.

Every beat of my heart,
Every move he makes,
Every step he takes,
You take my heart.

Every day I wake,
Every night when I sleep
Everywhere I go,
You are in my heart.

A Poem by Thelma Migue.

BEFORE YOU LEAVE

Wait,
Don't leave,
I will not take long,
Listen to what I have to say,


It will only take a while,
I promise I won't take your time,
Please stay.
Listen for a while.

I know what i did was wrong,
I judged you before I knew the truth,
It was wrong and I admit,

My anger got the better of me,
My jealousy left a scare,
The pain and hurt consumed me,
My assumption clouded my judgment .

Before you go,
Just do me one favor,
Kiss me the way you used to,
Hold me like you still love me.

You are my inspiration,
You are my world,
I adore you,
I worship the ground you walk on.

Don't let my sins,
Get in the way of our love.
Don't let my past,
Rule the present.

Your mind is made up,
This time there is no turning back,
I nailed the last nail into the coffin,
At least let me grieve,
Before you bury it.

A Poem by Thelma Migue.

MY JEWEL.............

When I held you in my arms,
When I looked in your eyes,
You were my responsibility,
My procession.

I am your custodian,
My duty is to guide you through life,
Provide and give you the best,
Till God takes over.

Everything I do,
Every step I take,
Every decision I make,
You are the reason.

As I take your little hand,
As I hold your little foot,
When I cuddle you in the night,
Nothing can compare.

The love I have for you is over whelming,
No words can express what I feel,
Your smile, your kiss, that beautiful laugh,
Makes my life, worthwhile.

In my eyes you are my jewel,
In my eyes you can do no wrong,
I want to hold you in my arms,
And never let you go.

To let you grow,
I have to let you go,
To let you find your way and strengths,
In this cruel world,
I will be there to guide you.

A Poem by Thelma Migue.

MY DIAMOND

Despite my mistakes,
Despite my faults,
With my attitude,
You still love me.

I push you away,
I say i hate you,
I curse you,
You still love me.

I walk out on you,
I throw a tantrum,
I huff and puff,
You still love me.

You are my diamond
In the rust,
The one i trust,
The one,
I can't live without.

ASHES TO ASHES

A legend,
A Genius,
An Inspiration.

An Icon,
An entertainer,
A songwriter.

Record breaker,
Ground breaker,
A walking genius.

Defied the laws of gravity,
Did the moonwalk,
Left us awed,
Generations are still awed.

Controversy left right and center,
Everyone wanted a piece of you,
Even in death,
They give you no peace

Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust,
Through your music,
You are immortal.

In Memory of Michael Jackson.

A Poem by Thelma Migue.
