Let Us All Unite

United we stand divided we fall
Yet often we do naught but brawl
Stupidly greedily fighting
Than reasonably uniting

Building between us a new wall
United we stand divided we fall
Eager to draw lines in the sand
Rather than clasp the open hand

Driven by selfish greed and hate:
Not cooperate but agitate
United we stand divided we fall
Solitude and downfall our pall

Yet we can embrace variety
Essence and soul of society
As together we can be tall
United we stand divided we fall

Bastards

the bastards never seem to die
living on rose scented wine
shattered victims always cry
feasting on so-called divine

bitching and moaning never cease
the bastards never seem to die
evil desire twisted disease
living in a perpetual lie

boiled souls begin to fry
daggers twisting the inside
the bastards never seem to die
every innocent must abide

human beings pay the rent
politicians pass the rye
children always circumvent
the bastards never seem to die

Warm Love

It was your love that kept me warm
But I was craving something else.
We had something that destroyed towns
And cities. Love that creates fires

And causes chaos in calmness.
It was your love that kept me warm
But it was not enough to keep
Us safe from outside opinions

And people who saw your bad side
Only. People did not know that
It was your love that kept me warm
During those cold and lonely nights.

We fought hard and we clawed our way
Out to the top despite all the
Thorns, rocks and many obstacles.
It was your love that kept me warm.

Days of Prose

O Lover, weve come this far
We might as well give it a shot
To the sweet cacophony of
Love and its damnable vows

Everything overflows, pours
O Lover, weve come this far
Gushing on gin blue tapestry
skin on skin mercurial desire

As stubborn as blinded hope
Tension coils on winding roads
O Lover, weve come this far
Every poison has its antidote

You; split image of flawed god
Cursing betwix heaven and hell
We might as well give it a shot
O Lover, weve come this far

Crazy Life

This life is like a crazy ride
But is it keeping you happy?
Does it keep that smile on your face?
The wind that blows through your long hair

And the sunshine that extra bright
This life is like a crazy ride
As you have to keep a tight hold
On it so it does not vanish

And appears to be gone for good
This time around. Your eyes saying
This life is like a crazy ride.
It always keeps you on the edge

And on the brink of craziness,
But sometimes you just want more like
An addict looking for that rush.
This life is like a crazy ride.

Harlow, Jean no picture of a beauty queen



and this is as good as it's not going to get,
yet his words manage to gut my tongue,
and grip my wrists with a tender slit
of lime & a double'shot of tequila

he goes cunting, a hunter in his knights,
and this is as good as it's not going to get,
for him his glove, I refuse to fit [it] with my love
a rejected shove instead spirals his vocals

the locals have a name for white collar'd sockets
& lips painted a dejected black; I can't go back 'cause
and this is as good as it's not going to get,
just let me sit here & sip, barkeep, another weep please

I'm back to walking that lonely block with my baby glock,
listening to the chaos breathe in its sorrows; I'm a Jean Harlow
in a b+w flick dressed for the unruly and the sadly obsessed
and this is as good as it's not going to get

Layla is her poetic name
her writing style changed the game
heads and shoulders above the rest
a stunner a true poetess  
 
Her poetry rose to Dup fame
Layla, is her poetic name
a favorite in reading lists
her words entice a tender kiss
 
a natural talent, so rare  
and beauty thats beyond compare  
Layla is her poetic name  
Her words fuel an endless flame  
 
some words written in scented lace  
others in her dark quiet face
a thought provoker she became
Layla is her poetic name
