The value of time

over 50's;  when a bed stops you to support sleep longer.
when your body stops you to eat stronger,
when medications stop you to drink alcohol,
when Dr. advises you to stop smoking if you live longer,
you know the time when value becomes a tease monger.

The Last Seven Plagues

those who bore 'the mark'
screamed from painful ugly sores
First of the Last Plagues

the sea turned to blood
and everything in it died
Second of Last Plagues

the rivers and springs
became blood--no more water
Third of the Last Plagues

the sun had power
burning people with fire
Fourth of the Last Plagues

kingdom of 'the beast'
was plunged into vast darkness
Fifth of the Last Plagues

       STILL--people cursed God
       and they refused to--REPENT
       global armies formed

the great Euphrates'
water dried up--transit road
Sixth of the Last Plagues

       world economic
       devastation, suicides
       lootings and killings

       stench of dead bodies
       cities on fire--engulfed
       chaos, fear, riots

the sun became darkened
the moon gave no light--all dark
stars fell from the sky

huge exploding holes
in the darkness as they fell
hundreds all at once

       army of 'the beast'
       horizon to horizon
       Plain of Megiddo

clouds blanket the sky
painful peals of thunder roll
gold weaves through the clouds

hundred pound hailstones
fell on unrepentant man
cars, homes, land destroyed

most severe earthquake
islands diappeared--Earth FLAT
splits Jerusalem

then voice from Heaven
"It is done"--is heard by all
Last of the Last Plagues

       wait at Magiddo
       the Son of Man--Returns
       on white horse, in clouds

       blood runs two hundred
       feet wide/long and five feet deep
       bodies explode at

       the sound of The Word
       spoken from the King of Kings
       one-sided battle

anti-christ and false
prophet thrown in lake of fire
beast chained--thrown in pit...

thousand years in pit
(Jesus rules Kingdom on Earth)
then, loosed for a time

there is still HOPE
Know Jesus loves you and died
for your sins--REPENT...

Why Are You Being This Way

Why are you being like this?
Oh how I just wished we could be friends,
But it ain't gonna happen,
Because you hate me for no reason.
Just because I'm not popular, because
I am less than you.
I just wished you knew,
Knew how I felt about,
How I used to like you,
All the things I did,
I was scared to talk to you,
Then when I found enough courage,
To talk, you block me out of your life,
As if I never exsisted.
Maybe I never exsisted around you,
But how can you be so oblivious,
And miss that I needed you?
Why oh why can't you see this pain?
Do you care?
Do you wish you could know me better?
Do you ever think of me at least once?
Do you care wheather I live or die?
Of course you don't because,
I am just dead to you,
I am just a pity ghost to you,
A horrible nightmare that won't go away.
I slowly die inside,
From all the times I've cried.
(I've cried for you.)
You look at me,
With your beautiful brown eyes,
You look right through me,
Like I was never alive.
I am invisible,
I always will be to you.
For some reason I knew,
I would always be like this
To you.
I wish you were missin' me 
Like I was missin' you,
But no matter what I do,
I am always dead to you.
Someday I hope we can be friends.
<3 I Miss You <3

Confusion Beyond The Door

"I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination."

I turn to the door.
Do I leave reality?
Tell me, who am I?

If I go back will I ever be able to return to this place I now call "MyLand?"
I've stalled for too long but it doesn't feel right.
I'm leaving my friends behind, but...they never cared about me!
All they did was use me!
And what happened when I wasn't good enough anymore?- they abandoned me, left me out in the blazing heat to die.
Good-bye reality, it's my imagination's turn now.

Just one little step.
What's this beating in my chest?
I won't regret it!
One step is all it will take.
Please God, make the door vanish!

DEATH WISH HAIKU A Musical History of Cigarettes

 DEATH WISH HAIKU (AS Musical History of Cigarettes)
Snooky Lanson sang it clear
smoke in every ear.

From your Hit Parade,
Frank Sinatra blew the words one time
Didn't Fence Him In.

Dorothy Collin's voice
America there's only one to smoke
Lucky Strike's the one.

Drifting up her nose
pulling smoke into her lung
biting on her tongue

what is she doing?
coffins closing in with nails
death as slow as snails.

Do you want a Lucky?
More satisfaction pleasure
undertakers measure.

Camel smoke was nil
More Doctors smoked  Lucky Strikes
Than Mike Hammer smoked.

Nicotine all day
tie hers up in Christmas bows
blow it out her nose.

Free on Navy ships
Sailors never saw the light
Though the match was free.

Quandary - A Husband's Haiku

The dishes are done,
Kids are asleep and dreaming.
Want to watch T.V.?

Privacy at last.
The kids will not disturb us.
Want to hug and smooch?

The dishes are done.
No one will disturb us, but
She's got a headache.

Whatever I did,
It must have been bad, because
She keeps saying, "No."

they sentenced me to 
pay off your credit cards and
back tax ring that bell

they sentenced me to 
be subjected to grumpy
not so special day

they sentenced me to
wish I didn't waste my time
trying to be sweet

they sentenced me to
wonder about your motives
it feels so phony

they sentenced me to 
first take back my heart and then 
protect it from you

Armin Babic

I cannot believe that I used to have a crush on you,
You are cold, heartless, and MEAN!
I never talked about you, never did anything to you,
I never deserved that, you had no need to be so mean.
You stooped so low, never had I seen someone do that,
People told me you were like this, I just didn't believe them.
I didn't believe her when she said you were a womanizer,
Didn't believe you were a Cowboy Casanova, well you showed me,
And never will I do that again, you made me believe,
Believe her, snf you made me believe you liked me, you led me,
Led me on, and then you were like, "I don't like you."
Well guess what I didn't care then, and I sure don't care now,
Cause I loved my hubby all along,
Love him more than anyone and anything, I love him and only him!
I cannot believe I used to have a crush on someone like you,
I swear you are the spawn of Satan himself,
And I feel sorry for girls who date you or fall in love with you,
I do, because all you do is play them like a game.
I don't hate you, but I don't like you like that anymore.
You led me to believe you liked me, and then you said it was all a joke,
Yeah well you were a joke.
You were a pill, I was willing to take,
I am glad I didn't take you,
You are an unmistakeable , unidentified drug.
I am a good-bad girl, I can tell a bad boy,
But even I didn't see this, didn't see that you like this,
The boy with beautiful brown eyes,
Are now dull, no longer do they shine,
That brown hair, that I loved, is now just a memory,
The boy born on February 18th,
The one that I thought was perfect,
God what the hell was I thinking??
Don't ask if I'm alright,
I don't have the answer,
But if you ask me if I want to hurt you badly, I will say,
Say yes without hesitation.
You have no idea how bad I want to hurt you,
But then again I don't.
Half of me hates you,
The other half can't bear to see you,
The game you played on me,
It was cleaver, but it was also cruel and hurtful!
I want to hurt you like you hurt me, but I could never that mean.
I could be as mean as you,
The person who doesn't know how much what he does hurts people,
I bet you don't care either,
Because that's just the kind of person you are.
They tried to warn me, those two girls, M&H,
But I didn't listen to them.
I didn't listen to them, because I am not the kind of person,
The kind of person, to believe what other people say, without,
Without knowing about you, getting to know what you're like, 
Until you do that to me.
Until I learn on my own, that's the kinda person I am,
I take the time to figure people out, instead of judging them,
Judging them by how they look like, and what people say,
That's the kinda person I am, I am a strong Redneck Woman.
And I will never change who I am, change myself for anyone,
I will not change for anyone.
If you don't like me for myself, then you don't deserve my time, or my words, 
Or my anything.
This is officially the end of me and my poem,

I don't understand why,
Why my best friend, doesn't wanna be friends anymore.
Caleb I know I may have hurt you,
I know I may have made you laugh, I did, and I made you smile,
I love talking to you, but for some reason you don't wanna talk to me,
I am wondering why.
Caleb, I miss you like hell, and I am going through hell not being able to,
To talk to you, to hear your voice, all I have are pictures, and a picture,
A picture in a frame. 
CAZ it is killing me inside being away from my best friend,
My one and only true best friend,
The only friend that has been by my side, through thick and thin,
Has been there for me when my great-grandpa died, when me and Josh broke up,
When my life didn't mean anything, the one who saved me from killing myself,
The one who talked to me everyday just to make me smile, and have a good day.
Now you are killing me by not talking to me!! Did you forget about me??
Did you forget I was there for you too?? That we were here for each other, 
That we made the promise to always be here for each other??
I miss you a lot, and I just want you to come back home Caleb Allen Zummak.

For Him

Confusion, delusion, rejection,
Seeking gladness, finding sadness.

Cold house, cold heart,
Feelings of drifting apart.

Always trying hard to please,
Never getting any reprise.

Is it worth it, I ask myself,
Failing in the pursuit of wealth.

Sick of life, sick of living,
Tired of trying, tired of giving.

Thoughts of love fading fast,
Thoughts of hope long since passed.

Why do I fight this losing battle,
Being ignored starting to rattle.

People say hi, then move away,
Never waiting to hear what you say.

Why do I continue with this strife,
What's the point of living this life.

Each day passes in the same mode,
Making my life such a lonely road.

Not talking, just walking,
Like i'm doing the right thing.

Not hoping now of a future bright,
Living life in this fading light.

God knows my heart  better than man
He knows i'm doing the best that I can.

I suppose now that my life grows dim,
I'm trying best and it's just for Him.

I am a very happy guy who talks to folk who aren't

What Would You Do

What would you do if you knew this was my last day to live??
Would you try and save or let me go?
Would you even care for my soul?
What would you do if I was a fallen angel?
Would you still recognize me?
Would you talk to me or ignore me?
What would you do if I died?
Would you have a funeral for me, so all my friends & family could come?
Would you cry or even mourn a 'lil bit?
Would you care that I was gone, or would be happy?
What would you do if I was a ghost?
Would you feel me right beside you, guarding you, Watching over you, protecting you?
Would you see me?
Tell me would you walk all over me, or maybe even walk through me, as if I weren't there?
What would you do if I was a demon?
Would you still love me then?
Would you still care and forgive me?
Would you just say "You are stupid, and I hate you?"
What would you do if I were and angel?
Would you love me more, or would you love me less?
Would you feel me touch you, and comfort you when you need someone and you think noone is there for you, well that's a lie, cause I am right here beside you to catch you if you fall, to dry your tears, and to heal your wounds of any kind.
What would you do if I was still alive?
Would you continue to hate me, and call me sadistic names?
Would this world still be cruel?
Would there still be a rule?
What would you do?

Babies are born and  grow

Twisted life:

Existence ends with me and you

Reflection on Me

 My heart sinks when someone insults me.
It seems nice when someone flirts me
But sometimes when dirty hands touched me, 
Not my body also my soul shacked me.
Thousands live quietly why it reactioned me.

Opening Mouths

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

Unlocking the pain
Making waves in the ocean
The under tow pulls

A downward thrust calls
Swim hard up to the blue sky
Breathe in and breathe out

Open mouths suck air
To calm the tired spirits
Exhaling their pain outward

Deeply remember
Listen to the suffering
Take it not on board

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

At Wick's End

Candles in rock pool...
Water like the deepest sea...
A stirring began.

Two hearts turn to flesh.
Angelic auras ignite

Silent, holding hands...
Yet full of words afterwards
Sent in love letters

With upside down stamps,
Scented poetry pages
Drip unfailing love.

Charismatic speech,
Uncommon romantic deeds 
And fantasies bloom.

Promises prematurely
Penned with shallow love

Melt souls like soft wax.
Formless objects of desire
At wick end's dead flames

Reveal the candles'
Mistaken identities-
"I thought I knew you's".

Reality lights
On the still, stagnant pool with
Ripples of "you said's".

Glowing nimbuses
Form the rolling thunderheads
And vapors of rain.

Soft shoulders turn cold.
Tongues set on fire with Hell's rage
Turn indifferent.

Two hearts become stone,
And the first visitation
Evokes hurt and hate.

Endangered peace talks
Precede a trail of tears to
Extinct promises

In boxed up letters
Rubber banded together
In a hidden place.

From "Modern Love And Other Poems"

A butterfly touched me
	With its silken fingers
And told me to close my eyes,
	Because she would reveal me
A secret!.
	And once I closed my eyes
And opened my mouth to ask
	Who was she?
But she reached back at once
With her wet wings and left me there
Trembling as a fool!

No Sleep Is Placed In Eyelids

I'm haunted with vision
I can't resume my mission
My eyelids split open

Sprawled in my puzzled head
Unable to push head down 
Sleep never exists here 

I'm missing my slumber 
The clock spins madly...spiraling
My wings are unfolding 

Blurred by the galling night 
Crying desperately for sleep 
My eyelids are cut off

The fire mouthed beast gurgling

Shambles to the bone

Melting citadels
Smoke choked lungs screams sin's silence
We crumbled to ash

                                                Could she love again?

How can you get what I want
And what you want
And even though you hate your life
You shouldn’t because look at me

And I can’t get over the frustration
Because you take away
And I get nothing
But wishful thinking and
Shattered hopes.

My Favorite Mistake

A/N: If you didn't realize it yet, this is a collection of haikus that form a little
story. Just wanted to give you the heads up on that.

Sometimes in our lives,
Things will start to take control
Of our own body.

My heart skipped a beat
When I laid my eyes upon
Your angelic face.

Though no one noticed
I longed for a single touch,
A feeling of warmth.

To you I’m nothing.
I’m just the dull wallpaper
In your perfect world.

I guess my attempt
Failed miserably , because
You chose to love her.

Now I realize
I wasted countless moments
Of my hopeless life.

Counting on this boy
To see the invisible.
…It proved one thing right.

Sometimes in our lives,
Things will start to take control
Of our own minds.

After looking back.
Give it up while you’re ahead.
‘Cause love’s a mirror.

With only one side,
It reflects the lonely face.
Of Miss Misery.

You were my favorite mistake.

                                              To try to drain away the pain.
                                              And there are some days when sun’s out
                                              Leaving rainbows in my heart 
                                              For hope for a new start.
                                             And there are some days I sit alone
                                             With no words to say
                                             And wait to hear my own voice
                                            To tell me it’s okay.
                                             I tell myself to pull myself together
                                            That I’ll make it after all.

Sporadic Haiku - 3 word haiku 6


Details | Haiku | |


I am scared sensless,
I cannot find bravery,
I'm so scared, help me.

Details | Haiku | |


The water fills up
Contaminating around
the fragile rooting

Nothing holds on tight
Grasping hands slip and sliding
Away from the hope

What can we all do?
Something must be done right now
The money is sent

Empty wishes fade
Life goes on while others die
Tears cake in dry eyes

Clogged efforts are slow
Wading through the dark water
hoping to avert sharp teeth

Natural forces
Too big for comprehending
Our only excuse

Time will not pass soon
An exhausting wait for souls
whose time has not come

Pray for an answer

Details | Haiku | |

Facing Yourself

staring eye to eye
from with in the looking glass
your reflection damns.

Details | Haiku | |

Hate At First Sight

Me, staring at you!?
How d'you know, if, you did not?
Love beyond belief.

War of Words

Words clamour within
A maelstrom of verbal might
Fighting those without

A boy watches me,
Then runs Frightened to mother,
Am i so very ugly?

Salty Sad Tears

Unwavered sadness,
crying sweet salty sad tears,
waiting for my end.

I Am A Ghost

I am but a ghost,
I am not alive nor dead,
I am between worlds.

Details | Haiku | |

The Deeper The Better

The words evade me 
My thoughts are of you tonight
But I cannot think.

Details | Haiku | |

Empty or Full

Now empty or full
Philosophical argument
Each man has his view

Details | Haiku | |

Tidal sands

Water rushes, sweeps.
Tide enfolds as ground moves round.

Feet engulfed. Swallowed.

Details | Haiku | |


just saying the words
does not make it true or real
I need to feel it

Details | Haiku | |

The Field of Blood

The monstrous tree swings
A noose above the carcass
Thrown head first to earth.

Tiny Confusion 2-13-01

                                I’m playing with those words again
                                Over and over again
                                Inside my head
                                But they don’t make any sense
                                How can you say
                                You want something
                                But not until
                                It’s gone.

A hectic morning
 Squirrels collecting acorns
  Neverending spin .

Bleeding Too Much

The blood is too much,
I cut my wrists to deeply,
I can't stop this death

Details | Haiku | |


Never to squander, 
This or that is where I am,
It makes you wonder.

Details | Haiku | |

Sands of Time

What compels a man,
He, walking throughout the land,
His heart in his hand.

Details | Haiku | |

Souls castle

The sands of time, dances in the wind.
Covering or sins.
Eyes wondering over the ruins.
The city is watched over by its many moons.
The city of wondering souls.

Darkness descends at night.
Later the night will turn to light.
Watching as the land and seas go by.h

Paper 11-10-04

                                                   A single sheet of paper
                                                   Somewhere for my thoughts to escape
                                                   This pencil is worn and dull
                                                   This paper is ripped and yellow
                                                   My only connection to my soul
                                                    I’ve forgotten everything
                                                   No memories
                                                   No feelings
                                                   I all I have is this paper
                                                  Ripped and yellow.
