About Me and My Poetry

I'm just a guy, ya know... I'm 50 years old, was born and raised in Texas. I'm now stuck in Maryland. I have one daughter , and she's my world. I guess like just about every poet(aspiring) my work all seems to come from strong emotions, and unfortunately, the darker the emotion the better my work. If anybody cares to try, I can be reached at lyzurdlyps@aol.com. The image I have used is by an artist named Targete. It is entitled "Wanna An Apple", and I consider it to be a visual poem. I hope everyone loves it as much as me.

Safely placed alongside the other useless things;

Take up your viol, your pipes and your harp.
Count out the time and let a reel start.
Play me a song, a tune with some swing.

Empty eyes stare back at me.

I know she’s out there in the dark.
I feel her spirit in my mind
Like the scent of distant lilac on the wind.

A coronary casualty drops by the way,
Bled out by wounds received.
Failing and falling into the rising dust

Birdsong symphony carries me away.
Glittering sunlight dances through the trees,

Its midnight again, let the nightmares begin.
I'm alone in the dark with my pain and my sins.
