Closed

I can put things together
Sometimes I'm on what you wear
Sometimes on things
Sometimes I get stuck and you get mad at me
Its not often for me to break 
I'm made out of metal










I'm a zipper

Beyond Your End

 BEYOND YOUR END
Look deep into yourself my friend,
if then, you need to look to me, 
and deep enough to see the end,
beyond your end is where I'll be.

Into the love someday you'll see,
becoming all the things you'll know,
before your very eyes, I'll be
already where you want to go.

I'll be your long and blinding light,
of which all life is awed,
the thread that reaches through the night
in search of what is God.

And in a while, if love is right,
and hope is not just more pretend,
though you have sought what e'er you might,
'tis me you'll find, beyond your end.

And I will love your death away,
removing from your mind
what'er your death might seem to be,
with love impossible to find.

Basketball limerick

A basket ball player with bounce
Said, “All my opponents I'll trounce.”
But thanks to a gale
He fell on his tail,
And off in a huff he'd to flounce!

Baseball limerick

A big baseball player on pitch
Developed a strange kind of itch:
The ball flew up straight
Then down on his pate,
So he blamed the whole thing on a witch!

Loneliness

Have you been in love?
Have you shared a kiss?
Have you ever got a hug?
Have you ever gone thru all of 
this?

I have not, nor ever been.
I have lost time and miss,
I have bitterness inside of 
me, 
I have nothing and noone to 
be with!

A lonely heart is like being 
sick
A lonely man is a walking 
dead
A lonely soul is trying hard to 
reach
A lonely friend is asking your 
help

Will you not open your heart 
for me?
Will you not give me your 
tender touch?
Will you not kiss and make 
me 
happy?
Will you not love freely and 
come to me?

Incomprehensible! (A Brief Critique)

Sadly for those of us hollow like other men
Incomprehensible! Take it away!

Bryant's Necropolis Conceit

Bryant’s Necropolis Conceit
 
Silent halls of death so cometh
William Cullen Bryant
Thanatopsis supremeus now
A sepulchre awaits us all.

Dour darkness and shroud forever
Thanatopsis-Phantasmus
The spirit world so beckons us
We all shall so wither and fall.

Incomprehensible

Hunger Games

The Victor
Their cheers,
Your tears,
Blood drips from your hands,
Their lies,
Your cries,
You stand where the victor stands.
Was it worth it, worth the death,
Destruction, to your right and left?
Would you have, rather died?
Left someone else to bathe in pride?
Do you need the luxery,
Raid the Capitol's treasury?
A web they span to hide their lies.
A trick of the light in ways.
Jewels on your clothes stained red,
The blood of the childrens drained lives.
You must gt up in the morning,
Their haunting faces in your eyes.
You are the victor but you haven't won.

Roads and Romans

Roads and Romans 

Poem 1     Roads
Poem 2     Romans

 
Two poems by Bev Smith and Arthur Vaso

Form: Double Inverted Verse

Please read the poem “Roads” by Bev Smith first!

In fact the best way to read these poems are side by side.



Romans

As our journey begins
We never look back
Roman soldiers march only forward
To
New worlds and conquered lands
We travel with
Swords and hearts
Naively believing
Both are needed
To feed our lies

We learned
Lessons of greed and condescension
Others wept
As we flaunt our power
Yet we gave back many good deeds
Laws and roads
Wine and dreams
Truth or deceptions
We haunted them all

Saddled with civilization
We gave culture and art
Yet I the soldier still wonder
The right of our cause
Taking these tranquil moments
So that I gaze back to our past
Confirmations abound
On balance we advanced our faith
To better this precarious world
To discover life’s heartbeat
Every road we marched
We advanced the human cause
We seek

To expand 
The Roman Empire
For Bloody Caesar

Prufrock's Symbolic World

Prufrock’s Symbolic World
 
Metaphors-Extraordinaire
Thomas Stearns Eliot
Metaphysical consciousness
Aura of aging and decay.

Streams of consciousness forever
Proto-disillusionment
The mermaids singing each to each
The mermaids will not sing today.

A Night Of Passion - A collaboration with Mystic Rose

Angel’s sing a chorus from cloisters that echo lustful cries of love 
While lovers drink in glances, passion turns to intimate desires
With trembling limbs they move, eager to entwine
Showing signs of hunger, in eagerness they thirst
Like a fine wine, they gingerly sip the taste of their sins
Soon to be committed
The Parish priest would be shocked at the debauchery
Yet why do the angels sing in unison?
The passion of love and life is the angel’s glory
A choir sings from above, at the happiness below
The coupling of spirits and raw desire
Gods design a miracle
To be celebrated


Note: This is a collaboration with Mystic Rose, and what a pleasure it was!!!!

POWER

Wrap the good and pass you should
Come down your ivory tower
Wrap the good and pass you could
Relinquishing your power

Show the good and pass around
For all to share the glories
Wrap the good and pass your could
For real to them not stories

One with good not understood
To hold and not to seed
Pass the good for all you could
Of poor and desperate need

Too much for one and none for some
How can you hate dictate
Too much for one your time will come
Not now but near you wait.

Boast

Arrogance is a need to be better than most
An inflated sense of self is much of  the boast
Walking  through the day
Up on the hill
Looking down on the humble is just their way
Never believing they will tumble 
Or there will be a price to pay
An when that day comes
It is never their fault 
Because they are better than most
An continue to boast...........

Photo memory

(Photo memory )
 Raining forward with the honey hue of summer.
I beg for the expression which reflects a smile.
I am but a boy growing.

So my breaks are short...

Logic provides nothing without action expect for positive 
dreams.
Which grew lazy.
I am no hero nor saint.

Just my dull emotionless self...

Trying to break away from my immature flaws.
Not everything stays like the family movies.
But not everyday is a day of rain.

Anyone can scream.
But few can sing without a song.

Valentines day

Hearts to you-hearts to you
What can be said about
Valentines day that's not
been said before?

Only to say that I 
love you so much that I
uncatagorically
gave up my whore.

Colorful Sins

  
                            Colorful Sins.

  
What should I do with my pain ?
Throw it away again 
What have you done with your love
You once told me that it goes above
Above all the limitations of sky
you even painted it, but did it dry ?
Go ahead and wash me with fire
Enjoy my sorrow, it is your smile that I admire
Burn my sins with clean water
And drag my heart to the slattern
Just please let me whisper the sea in your ears
Let it feed your soul with my fears
I shall be a native heart breaker
An international crime maker
Will you Emancipate my soul from sanity
And free my useless body from gravity
Clean my eyes from all that sparkle
Let them participate in the real battle
Explode my hallucinations
Grief on my imagination
You can turn me to ashes 
Watch my little heart crashes
Change the architecture of my smile
Rebuilt it in the Greek style
So my laughs will be philosophical thoughts 
And  we shall be two ghosts 
You who hunts my dreams when I an awake
You have always been an ocean, yet I can only be a lake
Sweep my touches softly from your skin
But know that it will become so thin
And then wave me goodbye
Ill bow mull think am just shy
Until you will see these drops falling in the yellow grass
That same grass that used to be green before you pass .

Birthday double dactyl

Hap-i-ty Birth-a-day
many long years ago
then was a guy named Sid
born to his folks.

Now on this special day
everyone celebrates
incontrovertably
one of lifes jokes.
