VázquezThis furry creature is just like me.He can be anything you want him to be,Ferocious or tender, savage or tame.He's at your command- just call him by name.The love he gives is something we all need to live.You'll never find one like him, so willing to give.So just give him your loving, that's all he will need.In return, he'll be loyal, protective, and never misleadAnd be willing to share with you those qualities,For as long as you want him, for forever, Cheri!
Secret Admirer, Part 2Secret Admirer, Part 2By and Copyright © 2012 M. VázquezThere all alone in the library, I'm stuck with this stupid assignmentOne more night of my misery, I'm wondering where my life went.I know who I'd like to be with. Then, from out of the blue, she arrives,Then walks to the back where I sit, comes over and sits by my side.Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God. God, it's Katie, now what do I do?I look at her now, give her a nod, but she looks like she hasn't a clue,Of who I am, or even if, as though she doesn't even care,I'm invading her space, where she lives, but we're the only two people there.My heart beats so hard, she can hear.

Triste's Warm BalladsTriste's Warm BalladsBy and Copyright © 2012 M. A. VázquezYou're cool, you're wise, you're wild, y'know?You got me gaspin', I'm even blushing,At what I see- the sheer audaciousness.Mind's tellin' me this can't be so.Eyes fillin' up, pulse poundin', blood's rushing,It's Passion in your work, no more, no less.Your violent, dark, emotions bared.Scars, blood all carved into a soul too young.But given all that, your nice blossom blooms,Hooked on horror, want to be scared,Out of your wits, but the fears are all from,Like Freddy's nightmares, just inside your room.The sober scenes that you portrayBelies the adolescent age, despiteA heavy heart, at times, and life's hard knocksYour spirit flies above the fray.Although it soars and climbs, it joins the fight,Rescuing friends and loved ones, from the rocks.Ever ready, at times so bold,There's so much strength in you, but not apart,A seldom-seen soft side, shining so bright.Warm as hot breath, not dark, not cold
A Wish For AmandaA Wish For AmandaBy and Copyright © 2012 M. A. VázquezPlease try to live this life as best you can,Give smiles as often as you get the chance.Do not be afraid to try something new.Be free, don't be inhibited by stupid rules.Stop and enjoy all the things you can do,Just use common sense, always, and make it your school.Despite sometimes sadness, life's mostly just good.Because second chances do come along,Don't waste opportunities, maybes, or coulds.Be true to your friends, 'cause they'll make you strong,Just stick with the good ones, ignore all the rest.Flash your magic smile to all those around you.You're capable of giving such happinessFor which they'll be so grateful, and remain true.Rest easy and sure of these certainties:Of the love in your heart, the hope in sunrises,Friends now with you, and the ones yet to be.And sometimes you'll see, there'll be good surprises.
