Two Line Poems

Poem By Alfred Ramos

I hate two line poems
I don'tstretch the truth
As far as I can
Embellish it a bit
My pencil doesn’t know when to quit
Bend and balance on a fence
I may teeter to the right
Views a tad abstentious
But I try with all my might
Not erase what is obvious
Two line poems aren't even a sentence
Just a thought that raced past one of your senses
I try to see more than what is there
A dark beauty in a dark hole
A rainbow of hope escapes my mind
A two line poem is a death sentence to grammar
Left at the starting line of creativity
I come not to praise them but to bury them
Open your heart to a world of word wonder
A two line poem I cannot ponder

A Mother's Love

I held her hand as tight as I could
Even though I knew it would not do much good
Her breath was shallow and weak
If only my eyes could speak

***dead And Gone

I didn’t attend your funeral
I hated you that much
I did send roses
The thorns for you to touch

I Keep Telling Myself

I keep telling myself
That things will change
New ideas will rise for us to rearrange
Chaos will bury itself in red tape


There’s a little boy
A fragile tin soldier toy
I know who he is

Love Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Love doesn’t live here anymore
It walked out and slammed the door
It packed it memories and faded photographs
It took its dreams, it took its laughs

When Love Is The Answer

Admit to your deepest desire
Know that your path is lined with fire
Crying will only get you so far
It won’t help you cleanse the scar
