Biography of Howard Johnson
I need to up my bio a little.First thought, I Write to manage stress with a pen, I need to understand how to bring it down, Draw the reader in
So they will can have a deeper feel for my writing.It keeps me off the couch.
Some say I should use pills....To control the ups and downs,
If I did that I would not have any poems or any really great friends on P.H.
Howard Johnson Poems
Funeral End For My Friend
I am standing at your funeral Ready to say good bye I am standing here
Her fingers long and slender As to the rest of her Wonder how such frailty could, labor
A large willow tree Still budding With small leaves Taking in warmth
The Tree That Knew Me.
My tree will know it all The tree of my childhood With the endless branches And the many whispers
A day to say I am sorry A day to say I love you A day filled with unending feelings A day filled with chocked emotions
In a drawer Behind some forgotten Necessities of life That cannot be thrown away
My Dream World
I build my castles every day.... And tear them down, again in such a way, And it is quite a wondrous way to play, When life is hard and full of pain,
A Hole Filled In Me
She is strong and I am not She filled a hole in me that was hard to spot I am greatful for that she gave to me At risk it may be
Little fragile, Flimsy bands, Worn on shapely hands, More despair to men have brought, Than all the battles ever fought
It rained stars last night Over a black umbrella They rolled across darkness Scatter like silver marbles
The place like twilight Parting between sleep and thought Not quite across the threshold of unconsciousness In its door way
The mercy for those Who have loved On dirty streets failing fatigue Runs in its course
I love to see the old hearth It has always been dear to me Blackened from fire that have been Let go
Cold sits And speaks every faint whisper Carves its name in uncovered Fingers and toes
My Life Long Lover
She is as deserving faithful for me to be.
Even more than those that came before.
From around neck there was a chain.
By my side.
She shall remain.
For its removal has not left me alone.
Givin her a ring and a throne.
