Orange Flame

You take my breath away…

At times I stand speechless

A cool silence dancing against my tongue

Beneath the stillness

You’ll feel the warmth

You’ll hear magic

An enchantment unsung

It whispers a calm yearning

Through a quiet storm

Raining heavy with desire

An orange flame

A wild heart

Setting my world on fire

It’s a feeling you place

Leaving me breathless

Dancing suspended in air

It lies between those moments

Hidden within the eyes

A steady pull behind your stare

The touch of your hands

A taste of your lips

Passion heats my skin

As your fingers trace my hips

You remind me of a favorite melody

A pristine sound painting colors across the sky

A soft pulse from the morning sun

A warm glow on the rise

fear of the wild wonder

Twin FlameThere’s this thing – an energy that paralyzes. It keeps us from rationalizing our fears from desires. It leaves us suspended in a space of complexity where uncertainty consumes. Because of this, we remain heavy hearted. Our truth becomes dearly departed. At times neither one of you can bear to see each other, let alone be near, side by side – too much energy that often times collide. We keep ourselves protected from overwhelming our senses leaving us tousled and tangled in a web of emotions. A simple touch or a quick dance of the eyes can trigger a wave of feelings. We are afraid. Frightened by the unknown, beyond what the eyes can see. Other times we manage but it persists leaving us suspended in air. We fall with fragility hiding it well beneath our masks. Some may call it attraction but the soul may say otherwise and call it love.

grain of salt

blue tear

The swift of his cool, so soft as the breeze
The weight of emotion

Bringing me to my knees
My ultimate fix
My daily addiction

A longing for your touch

My hearts redemption

Soft as words 
Is how i choose to be

It’s easier to hide inside this heartbeat

You’re not ready to see me

until you taste the bitter reality

You left me alone 

With my heart in your hand

Left me to drown

with the pebble in the sand

Taste the bitter you made of me

how does that you feeL

Use me like I’m the matter you need

grains of salt

tug of war

make love not war image

He’s the constant
Reflection in my mind
My suspended memory
Mirrored into time
Laying me to rest
In my slow state of measure
Brilliant to his moments
My guilty state of pleasure
Lost inside his reverie
Subdued in his emotions

I cannot handle
Nor can I conceive

Hiking over terrains
crossing mounds and boundaries
So unexpected
Didn’t think his heart would enrapture like this

Frighting to me with his rules and restrictions
Danger in his doubts and convictions
His struggle to stay consistent
His disappearance and his resistance
What a perfect contradiction

Struggling to push him away
Pulling to make him to stay

This is a war at heart

A battle defeated to begin

The risk of life

A war in love

in this i cannot win

Blindfold & Tears


blindfold down

Blind in love

In the thick of u

Tied up in memories

Tangled in ur rules

Time is obsolete as seconds run steep

A feeling so strong, parting the seas

Bound to my dreams of you

Scars of sorrow weighing heavily

Misery drowning me

Fading into shadows by the absence of u

Consumed by these tears

Haunted by ur touch

Longing to be near u

Missing u, can’t live without 

the second flame to my heart

passionate reflections tearing me apart

slave to your command

just to feel the move to your demand 

you got me

me got you

tonguetied, confused 

walking aimlessly

aimlessy consumed 

the way i feel, too intense to reveal

wrap me up in blindfolds

eyes full of tears 



blind in the blue (for Mel..before)

         up in smoke

lost in your world

the depth of u

the many dimensions of ur blue

was captured by ur rarity

taken for a spin

tracing my perception

my original sin

how could i be so blind

to let u in

thinking u were deserving of my love

knowing my heart warned in pretense

that’s where it begins

feeding me with words of convictions

my formal contradictions

weighing it all in

ur world pushed me down

in memories i drown

picking up the pieces

u left of me in shame

if only i had chosen to see

the ammunition of ur game

filling me with emptiness

believing in ur truth

wrapped in ur emotions

the emotions of ur hue

blind in ur colors

blind in the blue

….she cry’s LOVE (for Mel..after)


where in my heartbeat reads a silence

a still frame in time

her heart cry’s for a bearing soul to engage

why must love games be played

she questions love and wonders within

spirits break in heartache

pedals in the wind

where is her night in shining armor

upendo wa maisha yake


love of her light

cloud 9’s love high

the love she cry’s

my CALMer

twin flames 3

he is

the feather to my wind……….

drifting freely

he is my calmer

my mellow memory

his levels smooth my many dimensions

so in depth

my silent redemption

like the breathe of life

he brings the love

the love that warms the cold inside of me

burying the sorrow

wiping away the melancholy

he is my lion

in love he wins

he is my conqueror

the light within

my twin flame

no home for the broken hearted


what’s left to do when everything else has failed you

you try so hard to succeed yet things unravel so seamlessly

1 thousand tears can fall but can never save u from the reality of it all

they make u stumble and they make u fall

unwelcome in your own domicile

no one cares about your heart break

back against the wall

you reach out for a helping hand

your cry for help is now a whisper in the sinking sand

in the madness of your own pain

no home for the broken hearted

no shelter from your rain

that moment when u feel u are left alone

just a bottle to comfort u

no real place to call home

the broken hearted are emotional wanderers

searching for some fortitude and solace

seeking a place of refuge from themselves

to heal the two

the two broken halves that was once all of u………


powerful reach

You clearly don’t see me…

Swift through the breeze, I fade into the wind.. No weight to your world I hold no pretense.. The words I utter create no suspense.. No plot to my story, dilapidated to begin.. Where is my coveted protection? Your loving affection? Vision to your world all appears in pretend.. How could I fall once again? Deprived.. Deprived, such a desolate feeling.. You hurt me so, my spirit needs healing.

Man of 1000 Moons

sad spaceman

To Walk A Mile In His Shoes, Is To Walk With The Weight Of 1000 Moons

heavy of a load he bears

facing many challenges at hand

somber moods cloud his path

sinking him quick in the thick of sand

the burdens built ravage him slowly

enticing the world inside

pressure mounts

invading of doubts

conquer & divide

sounds of desperation ring alarm

impairing the beat of his heart

trapped inside his seducing thoughts

old fires causing harm


To Grasp The Thoughts He Consumes, Is To Stretch Your Mind Beyond 1000 Moons

devoured in silence

recaptured in time

speechless emotions

suffocating like a crime

his mental torture is twice his burn

regretting, remorsing

scars of lessons learned

reflection is his constant state of measure

balancing the pros & cons

solitude consumes when uncertainty eludes

pushing to pull him along

the weight of his memories

replaying like a song


To Possess The Spirit He Exudes, Is To Touch The Light Of 1000 Moons

an unspoken language gravitates you to his pull

he inspires hearts of many

peace reigns eternal

a natural ability to ease many worries & fears

words of enlightment

illuminous & sincere

such a beautiful aurora

quite rare in its kind

light bearing soul

a spiritual manifestion personified


To Capture The Heart He Secludes, Is To Journey The Distance Of 1000 Moons

dare to take a chance & gamble with fate

dare to raise the risks, with your heart at stake

he comes in layers

levels to his heart

no guarantee if you will reach

heartbreak has pulled him apart

if good fortune is written & it’s destined to be

the walls around his heart will fall effortlessly

back against the wall

time to make your move

destiny in the wind

which path will you choose…

Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

light infinite


Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant;they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons;they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

Enemy of Uncertainty

smoke lady

Take a look at what you see

Do you envision a glow upon me

Dark as the dusk of night

Empty like the eyes of Madame Moonlight

Wandering in time so aimlessly

No direction, no reflection of life upon my crescent cove

I am the mare of the night

I am the dark angel in flight

I can pull you into my kiss of clout

Never will you figure me out

High post planet of the stars

Magical as the milky ways

Yet poisonous as a predator to its prey

I will persuade you

Even betray you

If you give me the time of day

Who am I?

I’ll be whoever you want me to be

But most refer me as the enemy of uncertainty

Growth (female edition)

is you

No more time for games

Have to grow up girl

Life is no longer about pick tails & curls

Time to get serious

Before things get delirious

Why do you insist on acting in childish ways

Are you afraid of what a real woman would face

Girls are bound to make mistakes

But what makes a real woman is learning from the fail she makes

A real woman will take a chance

A real woman deals with issues at hand

A real woman is mature in her ways

A real woman can accept the things she cannot change

So when you decide to accept the truth

You might miss out on the best life has to offer you





With sheer beauty and grace of a mademoiselle

She epitomizes the elegance of a lady

The brightest amongst them all

Her light shines so bright

The sky will never fall


She holds the essence of love & strength in her heart and palm

Perfect position in her disposition

Her love reigns supreme

Abundantly caring for all


Her legacy is painted in gold against the calming yellow sun

She’s warm at heart

Kind with her touch

Embracing those of love


With wisdom unparalleled she guides & helps those in need

Also unknowingly teaching those who do not seek

Her magic reaches across all terrains & unforeseen boundaries


1000 tears can trace my sorrow but it will not replace her presence

I keep her alive through sustaining a noble heart & multitude of great compassion


To some a mother, sister, family, or friend

For me she’s beyond what a great-grandmother could have ever been….

My guardian angel

I am proud & elated to be apart of MEME’s growing legacy

She is now free, dancing with the light of GOD



Queen of Sad Clouds (for Melissa)

Outside your beauty and intellect prevails

Inside your strength and wisdom excel

Your spirit is your empire

Your soul is your empress

Your innocence is your princess

You bear a crown of clouded jewels given to you by your careless kings

No need to weep for they are helpless as sheep

Lost in a war of deceit

Their spirits bruised from defeat

Misguided are their ways

Easily lead astray

Betrayal has sat at your thrown time after time

Yet you continue to rule over the storm of their crime

Take a minute and think of how far you came

With all you’ve gained

Although clouds of sadness continue to crown

Shield your heart from the rain and never drown

Remain brave as a bird

Humble as the wind

Seek the power inside

Conquer like a lion and win

Protect your castle of compassion

Don’t let the deceivers come near

Keep your head to the sky

And never fear

Just when you think no one listens

The Redeemer hears


THE LIGHT OF SEASONS (A Poem)- one of my favorite poems by Juno

I stand alone in time & space

With no land, no color, no race

The rock that you have stumbled on

The shell that whispers wind and song


I watch the eagle as it flies

And gaze upon eternal skies

I am the bridge that you have crossed on

Or a wave that meets the ocean


My mind has leaped to higher places

Stopping every fear it faces

I witnessed every raging storm

Taking heavy shape and form 


I walked the road where no one goes 

And found the spring where bounty flows

I chose the path away from reason

And let my light guide through all seasons 


I came to rest on autumn’s dawn

And found you dancing by the lawn

And little did I know in time 

The light I saw was yours not mine


Poetry of an Awakening Soul

(Dedicated to all who embraced the work of light

You are never alone…)

by Juno


In depth of the world she stands

Awakened by words of significance

Destiny has lent a hand in this position

Divine guidance led her to him for the 3rd time in their lives

Words can never explain the reasons as to why

They merely surrendered and let chance oblige

This time it’s different, quite apparent to believe

Signs of fate whisper in the air clear for the eyes to see

He takes her hand and leads her out of despair

Fragile hearts surrender it’s part renewed and unprepared

His conviction leads her gracefully

Her complexities are removed

Their hearts reflect sentiments of affection effortlessly unmoved 

The passion they carry forms a vivid light

Emblazoned amongst the skies at night

Stars tremble at their sight

What they carry between the two

Something mystical something true

Something robust radiating through 

A profound energy amidst

Ignited with every kiss

A beautiful fancy indeed

Something written and planned in destiny

Or is it a coincidence? Time will soon reveal

The truth of their purpose, genuine or surreal

To the End

to the end of the earth my love abound

forever there

forever around

dedicated love i gave at most

unappreciated i contested at most

all i ever wanted from you was love at best

all you ever gave was selfish love you claim to attest

no longer will i wait

no longer will i confess

one day you will truly appreciate me


but i won’t hold my breathe

till then i must go officially

so easy to say

so easy to write

soon you’ll know the truth of my plight


but you may never know

my love you decided to hide in the past

beyond the ocean’s blue

ever so sad

ever so true

so i must go because your heart is not in it

i wish u the best now that i’m no longer in it
