No More Poetry

No more poetry???
May as well say
No more sunshine...
No more summer rains...
No more stars at night...
No more full moon's light...
No more rainbows in the clouds...
No more snowmen or winter breaks...
No more beauty in the world...
No more boy meets girl....
No more laughs...
No more smiles...
No more hope....
No more victories over trials....
No more poetry is a curse
On the world
That should never  
Be spoken out loud.

Versifier

Versifier 
Turning words into art 
Sculptures made of letters 
Beautiful to the ears 
Soothing to the soul 
Word sculptor

Reborn Man

I’m a reborn man 
My home is in the sky 
I’m on my way to get there 
I’m a poor man now, 
But i’ll be a rich man when i die
2005

Her

She is the center of my world. 
she is my moon and stars. 
i would kill for her. 
i would die for her. 
i would fly her off to Mars.
to know her is to love her. 
to love her is to live. 
to be close to her 
there is no price 
i would not give.
cannot breathe without her. 
cannot live with her gone. 
without her i am nothing. 
incomplete and alone.
she is my moon and stars. 
the rainbow in my sky. 
she is the air i breathe. 
without her i would die. 
to know her is to love her. 
to hold her is a dream come true. 
she is the keeper of my heart. 
without her i am blue.

Invisible to you

youll never know how much you mean to me 
because you could not care less 
you get your heart broke 
time and again  
by those you think you want 
while we remain friends 
i mean nothing to you 
but i am the one who
cannot live without you 
i am the one who cannot stop 
thinking about you 
i am the one you should be with 
i am the one who would cherish you 
but you dont see me 
you dont want me 
you chase after others who do you wrong 
and miss out on the love 
we could be making all night long 
is it wrong to love you 
to think of you all the time 
is it wrong to need you 
to have you always on my mind 
is it wrong to wonder 
how your lips would taste tonight 
am i wasting my life 
waiting for the time to be right? 
i am unseen 
invisible to you 
you never think of me  
but i cannot live without you 

The Empty Page

The empty page calls to me
Beckons me to take a look
And share the poetry hidden on it with the world
The empty page challenges me
And mocks me for not
Seeing the words that are already there
Waiting for me to point them out to you
The empty page smiles at me
As i type the words hidden on the screen
And uncover them to share with the world 
Thoughtfully
Happily 
I type the words i see
In my mind
And share them with thee  

Stepping Stones

Stepping stones 
On the river of life 
We leap from one to the next 
Hoping not to fall in 
And get swept away by the rapids 
Swept into the abyss 
And lost forever  

Iron Bars

Iron bars do not a prison make.
Nor plaster walls a home.
I am here with you every night,
And yet im all alone.
It takes love to
Turn these plaster walls
Into a home.
Without that,
We’re just 2 people
Living together
Alone.

Daydreams

Day after day
I dream of things that cannot be
Of things I cannot have
And sights I cannot see
Is life unfair
Or is it something wrong with me?
Daydreams
Are all I have you see.
1999

Two Castles in the Sky

2 castles in the sky.
2 towers way up high.
2 symbols of a land.
2 dreams for all of man.
countless children of moms and dads?
countless ideas in their heads?
countless dreams for better things
that won’t be coming back again?
2001

Together we can make a difference

Together we can make a difference
Hope in the heart of the small
A brighter day in a child's eyes
A better world for all.

United We Stand

United we stand 
Divided we fall 
If we don't help each other 
We lose it all. 
You can make a difference 
If youre down 
Its amazing how much
One man gets around

Your Future is in your Hands

They say that we cannot control our lives
They say that we are powerless to put up a fight
They think that there is no way we can make a stand
The power to change the world is in your hands
If you want to be all that you can be
If you want to pursue happiness and be free
You have to do something to change the world
And stand tall and be proud when that flag is unfurled
The secret to life is to live it
Find out what you want and get it
Don’t let others crush your dreams
Support yourself and believe
Only you can make your dreams come true
But you cant do it until you take a stand
Fight for your rights and dont back down
Its your future that is in your hands.  

2014 Poet Raymond Nichols

Hunger is not a game.

No lunch today again.
Dad ran out of cash.
He makes too much to get help,
But the bills take all his money.
Hunger is not a game.
And being hungry is not funny.

WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE YOU???

I KNOW YOU SAID YOU DIDNT LOVE ME
I KNOW YOU SAID THAT WE WERE THRU   
SINCE WE MET YOU SAID A LOT OF THINGS   
I KNOW THAT ALL OF THEM CANT BE TRUE   
LIKE WHEN YOU SAID YOUD NEVER LEAVE ME     
AND WHEN YOU SAID YOUR LOVE WAS TRUE BLUE    
AND WHEN YOU SAID TOGETHER FOREVER      
WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE YOU???         

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH YOU'D HURT ME
I NEVER KNEW YOU'D FIND SOMEONE NEW  
AND NOW I KNOW HOW YOU DON'T NEED ME
AND HOW YOUR LOVE WAS NEVER TRUE  
AND LOOKING BACK NOW I REALIZE  
HOW YOU ONLY THOUGHT OF YOU  
AND EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS LIES  
WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE YOU?
WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE YOU?
