Ray Lucero Poems


When you sail troubled waters
I’m your oaken ship

Where you stand

“great Souls Live In Crooked Bodies”

Judge not, measure not,
The greatness of a soul;

By how one looks outside

“all The World’s A Stage”

Shakespeare wrote what we’ve forgotten
Human beings act their way through life
Sweet, ripe fruit, with a few gone rotten
All walk the keen edge of Lucifer’s knife

♥ ♥ Island Lovers ♥ ♥

While standing by the glassy sea
We embraced, as lovers often do
A magic moment given you n' me
On a sandy beach near Honolulu

“acid” (To Timothy)

LSD better known as “Acid”
Can make you rave or rather flaccid

It's made crazed ones claw steep walls
