Summary

A short list of some of my favorite poems that I have written over the course of my life between the years 1986 up through 2020. They say every great idea starts with an artist stroke of….well, you fill in the blank. Whatever ‘THAT’ is or may become, I extend my sincerest gratitude, acknowledgement and appreciation to those who have dared to dream and inspire to tell the world about it.

Wicky is a Good Friend of Mine

...there once was a God who created a universe in just a blink of an eye,

It starts when we pray and all ends the same way and maybe you'll get the answers to your questions why?

big bang goes the start and that’s where we part until we all just wave goodbye. Started as pure energy add to that some love and that was the reason why. Some say that God did it but just won’t admit it, just to watch us all be born and die

Wrath was a good friend of mine

there once was a man who created his own cell from deep, deep inside,

now he's within from where we begin, from somewhere it won’t subside. Started in his head and ended when found dead and nobody really cares why. Some say that he did it and that’s why he hid it from those who never even tried

Pride was a good friend of mine

there once was a mother who created life from a bunch of x’s and y’s,

she birthed a son who turned out to be dumb and father lead to its own demise. It started from then and then she turned ten and that was the real surprise. Some say that he did it but just won’t admit it now wave that little life goodbye

Lust was a good friend of mine

there once was a child who created a place to escape the space of reality,

one two three, I gotta go pee and what about me and when do I feel my mortality? It happened right then, a mortal life immortal sin, now do it again but in a whole different parody. Some say it was done but you’re just too dumb to hear the fucking melody

Envy was a good friend of mine

there once was a machine that created its own thing from a bunch of ones and zeros,

A.I. created a game in which no one’s the same and you get to play the hero. It started from code and evolved to erode the body of our lord and savior. Some say that it did it but just couldn’t fit it; the humanity into our behavior

Greed was a good friend of mine

...there once was a God who created a universe from a bunch of space and time,

It all starts the same way and ends when we pray, begging for forgiveness before we all die. The truth of it all, you can’t expect them to call, until they’re down to their last goddamn dime

Ted Yellow: A beautiful collection of poems that come with random messages about life. The use of metaphor is amazing and adds to the overall beauty of the poems. A little more attention to the use of punctuation can make it even better!

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Claire Kimanuka Rukundo: Special book and I like it very much

Mackenzie: This was a big switch up from "Texting him". At first, I was unsure about the poetry but now I think it helped tied the story together. With each poem, you got to see a part of V's heart while it was not blatantly said. The relationships in this were so thought through and were so great. I loved ...

Maristel Espiritu: I am so disappointed with the ending. I was so happy with the character of elizabeth. Its a matter of talking it out.

Withoutanyfs: I wish more people read this bookThis is a short book (very unfortunate) which describes the journey of a "painted" boy. It doesn't romanticize pain, it explains it, It explains the suffering in such a beautiful way, that I almost don't want to believe it. But I do, I can feel the pain. My heart ...
