Which Came First

Poem By Alfred Ramos

Which came first?
The truth or the lies
Was the truth a setup?
When you looked deep into my eyes

Was the truth a slow dance?
Where we exchanged body heat
In an embrace without romance
Seducing me from head to feet

Which came first?
The promise or the tease
Where you said things
That brought me to my knees

Did you enjoy the pain and the fall?
Or when I stopped breathing
As you choked me to a crawl

Which came first?
The meal or the plan
Where you sliced and diced me
And turned me into half a man

If you have no explanation
And the damage satisfied your thirst
I guess it doesn’t matter
You don’t care which came first

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

Inside

Inside
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
