I Give You My Heart

Poem By Leslie Alexis

Phantom-mized when I stare into your eyes.
The curse willing me to give you my heart.
In you, I find the calm that I sought,
In this world of masks and disguises,
Where most are unreal and living in lies;
In a hell of the dullest black and white dots,
Where love is corrupted with flesh, and hearts
Have switches that change. My God heard my cries.
I was taken slave by the persistence of love.
I fell many times; my heart heart was bruised
So often that to think of love I refused...
To believe in love? Never! ! ! To the grave
I would take my heart and all its love.
Because of bad luck, love did not ripen and was sour.

I have loved, but it was forced on me. Love in war:
Where my heart was ripped out, even as I starved,
For an 'I love you', 'A kiss'; such I did not have.
Yet, my heart was flaunted, like a TV star
Flaunts his possessions, by selfish witches.

But in you I found a love that Is true.
Your kisses on my cheeks, and the way you
Hold my hands when we walk, or hold me close
On cold nights(so tight that I can feel
Your heartbeat on me, beating inside of me)
Makes me want to throw away the rules
That I have made to love no more. With the tools
Required to transfer a heart, I gladly
Give mine to you...

I walked the path of death before you.
I was a soul with a dead heart,
But you came and restored within me a
Flame that is kept going with each kiss.
You give me passion for life with each
Touch. I love you. So very much. My
Life is found in you. I give you my heart.
Life without you is a thought that I don't
Want to think of. I love you, now, and
Forever more.

Your Choice

The howling wind that has no life,
Seeks my own with both blood and knife;
But in my God I will stand strong,
And if It think it’d win, it's dead wrong.

All Things Lovely

Lovely things begin with the sunshine.
Her rays illuminate faces
So that smiles can be seen.
Her love so bountiful

The Decaying Green

Walking along the path I heard leaves break
Becoming like dirt under the soles of my shoes.
They, in their millions, epitomized beauty
And life, but now they decompose and wane.

Be Safe, Angel

The wailing tunes of the long lost child.
Her father’s ways the cause of her cry.
So many lovely young ones wish to die.
Because they know not love, tears fill their eyes.

I Am Christ's

In Heaven, at the right hand of God I’ll sit,
I haven’t been there, but my eyes can see it.
Adorned in righteous robes, I’ll stand by the king.
I will see angels flying with their angelic wings.

Christmas (A Sestina)

Christmas is here, Jesus to the world brought peace
Everyone is rested as kids spend time with family
Kitchens are ablaze, wives creating good ol’ soul-food
Leslie and Destra, await their turn, under the mistletoe
