Don’t Make Me Use Voodoo On You!


Well you better treat me good or I will
throw out an ancient Voodoo spell on you
dead men tell no tells especially when
at the bottom of a black water bayou
so you better treat me good, I’m a telling
you if you don’t want to end up as
Alligator food and if you don’t want me
to cast any Voodoo, hoodoo on you…
‘Cuz this past year the bond I thought
we had is wearing paper thin and my
patience is wearing thin, typical Leo
you say you know me better than I know
myself well you better think again
I’m nobody’s fool so I’m warning you
I’m warning you…
you better treat me good or I will
throw out an ancient Voodoo spell on you
dead men tell no tells especially when
at the bottom of a black water bayou
so you better treat me good, I’m a telling
you if you don’t want to end up as
Alligator food and if you don’t want me
to cast any Voodoo, hoodoo on you…
You’re lucky I haven’t hurt you already
I guess I’m just a witch with a heart, can
you imagine that, you say I’ll do better
please believe me, you bewitched me
and it was love at first sight the first time
I saw you in your dead tree garden, in the
shadow of the moon’s shadow sometime
around the stroke of midnight and I haven’t
even casted a spell on you but still you
say you are the one, the one I’ve been
looking for my whole life, even tho you know
what I am you say I don’t give a damn,well
maybe I’ll keep you around for another lunar
cycle and we’ll see if you can keep your
promises in the dark but I’m warning you,
I’m warning you, you better not break my heart
I’m warning you, I’m warning you…
you better treat me good or I will
throw out an ancient Voodoo spell on you
dead men tell no tells especially when
at the bottom of a black water bayou
so you better treat me good, I’m a telling
you if you don’t want to end up as
Alligator food and if you don’t want me
to cast any Voodoo, hoodoo on you…
Don’t make me use my voodoo, hoodoo on
you!

O You

O You short poem

A monster from a tree jumps and runs around the bushes to mate. A blank statement is issued. The system groans and collective pshyche fails. A stark silence for the food for thoughts. I sit down to meditate- to find

Walking Into You

Walking Into You short poem

Tonight the nectar will be spread to tame a random tormentor. Black and white, I never saw my father weeping. Lonely he was. I am my own creation today weather beaten. Confession to – confession, unread. When the- storm was

I Know Me

I Know Me short poem

It was a freak accident of epithelium under anaesthesia. You place a window on to a hollow brain. The money makes the monkey out of you. A green light blocks the fish, your memory, to swim in black thoughts. The

My Heart Loves You

My Heart Loves You short poem

My heart loves you Was it not some time ago, My heart was like a rock? An impenetrable fortress, With steep cliffs at its side, A distance land, Far away, From where no ordinary soul, Would dare to reside? I

Now That You Are Born

Now That You Are Born short poem

Cacophony was child’s cry,it made me forlorn Symphony it is,now that you are born Trauma was my life,bruised my being Tranquil I am, showered in your eyes loving Bathed in your waft ,my stink is gone Rescued by your raft,now
