Upon the tongue so wicked, yet desired,
if not offered lies seem to grow with speed.
A truthful man is sincerely desired,
but for this emotion, we should take heed.
Lies coat the lips generously most often,
frail beliefs are the idiot's downfall.
Untrue events of love the most common,
the truth be known when backed against a wall.
If not wholehearted a passionate kiss,
the taste upon the tongue is bitterness.
Only to be hope for such eternal bliss,
this is the truest of passion's sweetness.
Being sincerely honest I believe,
the best policy is not to deceive.

I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
