Far Away

Why’d you call

When you know I wouldn’t

Where did you get off thinking

What were we, to either of us

Who did you tell

I only come once in a blue moon

But when I do, it’s because I needed you

Not for us, but because I





And honestly, quite susceptible

To irrational presumptions of guilt and doubt

But you

You steady me, somehow

And I feel sure of my path

So always light it

Even when I’m far away


Distain For Life

Corner of the mouth is bleeding

I can read your words, but unable to find

The feeling, the gripping distain for my life

My mind, it is angry

But never, ever with you

The sun goes down on it everyday

And though I apologize it haunts me still

Greater than anything I’ve ever penned

For each time I try to talk to you

Another part of my enology is written

I could be smitten with a hundred, or merely one

Yet the curse cannot be broken

My grave is done

Show Me

Don’t show me your body. Show me what’s underneath devious skin. Deceptive layers of flesh are hardly attractive in the darkness we dance in. There are galaxies of inevitable possibility within you. If I can reach inside I’d find the stars. NASA looks up, but I look straight ahead. For what I’ve already found, for what I wish to. Love isn’t just a four letter word that tells you I care. It’s a four letter word that tells you I don’t care what they think of us. If this reality is too hard for them, then find another one. But this is here. This is now. And this. These hours. These moments. These memories. This laughter. This family. These words. These publications. It’s mine. Mine.


Left without a hint or trace of your existence

Something smells afoul with the cryptic remnants of our communications

Hardly a mastermind of an escapee, I find the traces, I find the littered remains of the thoughts you once had for me

Bitter tasting potions, recollections of the failure I achieved in satisfying your needs

Somehow you care just enough to remind me of how far I fell

Yet stay in the light to give me hope of where I could return


Amnesty International Decriminalizing Sex Trade


For the blood on my hands

And the remains of the heart

Still frantically beating underneath poached skin


For the children who never matured with grace or dignity

And saw age forced upon them for the sake of sex

Still pulsating, their genitalia could hardly keep up

Red, oh Red

There was always more, one nights, one hundred nights

They could never be enough

But for the men who held them captive, there was always more

To go around, slap lipstick on three year olds

And force pills into toddler boys to make them harder


For the tears uncollected by the outside

Prayers be pots and pans in a thunderstorm

Good wishes be the lifeboats of the Titanic

In all of the tweets there is but little compensation

For the children so hallucinatory that even their own lives

Seem imaginary

I Know My Worth- Devereaux Frazier

My piece, “I Know My Worth”, published on Whisper and the Roar

Whisper and the Roar

I know my worth
Are you sure about that 
They ask me in the twilight hours
Caressing the vain sense and sensibilities
Of someone already caught in the eye
Storms vast, lighting strikes wide and deadly
The waves toss my hapless soul overboard
And plunge me deep into the abyss of sorrows
But alas, they are not my own
Not mine to keep
Just bitter tales of man and woman
Too deep in love to remain apart
When the fates have aligned they should
Swords run through aghast faces
Spears pluck the youth from their mothers
And leave carcasses piled high to heaven
Are you sure you know your worth 
When everyone around you is bleeding
And everything is choking on the blood
Not of their own, and not of yours
But of their forefathers, and all their mistakes
How blessed can life truly be when pain
Is served for…

Every Inch Of You Is Another Stripe of Agony

Never mind, I don’t need you
The earth closes over any trace of you
And shuddering skies thunder and storm
At the mention of your name
Forgive me if I was ignorant and young
Forgive me if I was impressionable and eager
To please every inch of your royal throne
Illustrious and lacking in beauty nowhere
I found your chin to be a safe haven of peace
Resting beneath your eyes I could finally fly
Into you, into you, I dumped my sorrow
Wilting away, drugs in my veins were kisses
Departed unto me the respect in viewing
Doors locked to all before me
I was sure, in assuring voices you promised
To always be there, to always see me there
See me off to the depths of night
And in the return of day, you’d guide my way
You promised!
Broken hearts are so overrated
Heart as cold as ice?
Get a better line
My head is clamped shut with steel spikes
Pry me open and loose your life
Just to discover someone that hates more
Despises more, furies more
And always raging in words
To describe my sincerest form of agony

Whisper to me

If you would but listen

I would take you to the end of the world

Time is a spectre of our finality

But together we can last forever

The breasts on which I lay my head

Is a portal to worlds unknown to men

Softly you trace my heart

Tender hands are the key to my servitude

I align myself with your body

Eyes locked into each other, tongues awash

In remembering the love we shared last night

The coffee on your breath engulfs my nostrils

And I taste the bitter regret locked away

Hide it down, deep down, but you can’t hide

Never, my head searches your innermost being

Kissing the pretty pink lips of your womanhood

Biting in earnest to bring you back

Reeling the tears out of your portal eyes

I land a million kisses upon your cheeks

Each one deeper than the first

I feel your nails digging into my back

And thighs that just won’t be still

When we’re locked together, like this

There’s nothing I would leave hidden

And everything I would miss

Just to share this moment with you

To bring you comfort and pain

Morning glory and evening rain

Flaud as you are

There’s something that pulls me closer

And I can’t let it go

Down – Deveraux Frazier

My poems on the exploitation of women for Whisper and the Roar

Whisper and the Roar

Deep into the darkness we go
Depths uncharted but by one
Death discharged into the youngest one
Into the valleys we praise the one light
Into the dungeons we sing our names
The last trinket of humanity remains
In souls that were pure and sane
We become human no more
The key to our paradise is just a door
For lust to be ejected and erected
Go our heads, hands, and feet
Offset by the blood and tears going up
On and on go turned on males
But down goes our daughters
Down to our wives
Down to mothers

Down goes their cry of agony tonight

Pour a little oil
The pour a lot
The anguish of their tears matters not
Do it for the culture
Do it for the vultures
The predators on back pages
And the scum of Hollywood stages
