Winter’s Rage

Poem By Alfred Ramos

In the vortex of the swirling evil wind
Mother Nature showed its evil grin
Sleet and snow becomes an evil twin
A wolf’s howling can be heard as evil sin

The barren landscape reveals a blinding glare
The bareness sinks into the marrow of a nightmare
A bone chilling feeling comes knocking at the door of despair
A candle light vigil gives refuge a worthless fare

It’s a Christmas Eve like no other
And bitter loneliness has no mother
Winter bares its claws ready to smother
Tempting any fool or his brother

Snowdrifts pile high as they can
Snow blowers shudder through out the land
A winless battle against a harsh wind so bland
Snow blinded by a white light making a stand

Can spring be near
Does it need a kick in the rear
What am I doing here
I hear Hawaii calling loud and clear

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
