Steal Your Thunder (poem 1 of 2)

I’ve got the heart, my soul is all right
I’m gonna take her and rock her tonight
You had your chance, you knew the cost
You locked horns with me and buddy, you lost

You’ve lived your life and hers by only your rules
I’m on the scene now and it’s time for school
Your arrogance and smugness was your biggest blunder
It happens so fast, Boom . . .  I’ve stole your thunder!

She’s more than a woman, she’s a generous soul
She’s my best friend; She has a heart of gold
You were so stupid you could have had it all
But your controlling ways was your biggest downfall

You’ve lived your life and hers by only your rules
I’m on the scene now and it’s time for school
Never again, your thumb she was under
It happens so fast, Boom . . .  I’ve stole your thunder!


Heart Failure (poem 2 of 2)

My heart is a lifeless muscle consumed by angst and dread
Although she lives and breathes, my soul mourns as if she were dead
My blood flows hot and slow like molten lead
Loathing sleep as her face is in the darkness of my head
It pains me to curse the day we wed
The vows we took the lies she said
I rather she had scorched my flesh instead
For this is a pain no cure no meds
Exhausted and weary I find no relief in bed
My heart is a lifeless muscle and this is my bitter end
