Premium Member A World Without Pity
After wishing me a good morning, he said that it was all set,
It was time to raze the house, even though I wasn't in debt!

But they wanted to build a big highway, exactly in this spot,
Like a beaver zealously builds...Read More

Until Then
Until you really love someone,
you don’t know what you’ll do

The old rules self-abated,
priorities renewed

Until you really love someone,
you won’t see past yourself

Your life upturned, your role reversed
—your soul to someone else

Does Anybody Care
Indubitably deepening gazes keep daunting with his strides,
Farther, deeper struck am I, beside the citylights it lies;
Knowing not, what wrong was done, born as a girl, all alone,
To snatch my chastity, keeps me hither he, abandoned gazes alone shown;
Hold me...Read More

A Reply to Poe's Demise
Hill now gone, a soul deflated
The wicked winds began to cry
Every fiber of his being
Motionless and now abated
Uttered pleadings quickly fleeing
Such phantom hands upon his cloak
Whose tightened grasp his spirit broke
Her sullen plea did heavy weigh
When earth below then gave...Read More

The Red Battle
Together we stood, as if one, our thoughts in unison,
there were others among us, they were but shadows,
when we moved, we did so together, our charge- our defeat,
we died together that day, as one, our bodies blooded and battered.

And all...Read More

Premium Member Green or Golden Age
When was that golden age for which you yearn?
A perfect Eden? where we’d yet to learn 
To conquer and to dominate the land
And Mother Nature held the upper hand
Did Earth confer a blessing or disdain?
When life for most held hunger...Read More

The Dark Lord
All things good and va-a-aluable,
all progress great and small,
all folks small and ma-a-alleable,
the Dark Lord ate them all.

Defied the constitu-u-ution
launched media attacks, 
abated persecu-u-ution,
of Mexicans and Blacks.

Colluded with the Ru-u-ussians,
told 15,000 lies,
shrugged off the repercu-u-ussions,
discredited his spies.

Caused economic ru-u-uin,
impeded world...Read More

Suddenly over the sudden years
I have felt an encumbrance; I sense an albatross -
the weight of sundry uncharted days.
Times I chronicle today as if I were a wax cylinder
and not the broken spool in a cassette tape.

The demise of rationale
The demise of the rationale, transforms to a spell,

On its stride kills innocence, opens the door to hell

Its not the fire of warmth on a winter night,

neither a fire to rekindle abated sight,

It's the fire to envince your might,

I walked unhindered as if in a dream from which I could not awake,
I knew not of any sights or sounds nor the wind that tore at me-
threatening to throw into the watery depths below,
In my trance like state fear...Read More

Dermal atrophy abated
Crows and creases toxified
Final look not contemplated
Alien just like you died

Flowers never reconstructed
Perfect beauty quickly fades
Aging process you obstructed
Mirror damaged thought invades

No way to see yourself again
Face frozen stare distorted
Looking back the joker grins
A novel look turned horrid

Ono no Komachi translations
As I slept in isolation
my desired beloved appeared to me; 
therefore, dreams have become my reality
and consolation.

You hardened griefs robed in base linens red, 
Whence cascade your endless prickings sore?
Each searing tear squeezed from low eye wet, 
Breeds more noxious throbs that come and go. 

Once when sweet relief your brutish whips
With belated solace and little...Read More

The Orb
Of the orb I speak in awe
Of the Moon with its slender claw
Finite in size, elysian in presence, there to watch
Crop the doubt, step up a notch
As is he - facile princeps - a sublunary prince,
Devout and intense ever since

Why won't the tears come

Externally I watch the moon
with no reflection in my loft

Mist and not Missed.

As the smothering all confounding 
Mist gradually clears
Heavy dark foreboding ominous clouds dissipate
A multicolour rainbow paints the sky
The sun shows it’s beaming smile once more 
Drying fallen tears

The lonesome hermit comes out of their shell
Eyes now open...Read More

flung it at the hard gusting winds
Through the roar he heard its feeble moan
and he denied they were ever true friends.

Whit wet Vetted Splendour
Whit wet Vetted Splendour...

Pervaded mounded jeweled ground
gunmetal sky incessantly
pelted and did pound
asper staccato round

arhythmic, emphatic, melodic sound
to this clown,
who felt housebound
as precipitation reigned down.

steady rain quintessentially
patterned oodles of necklaced
mini mellow marsh lands
wee hour early this morn

after drenching rain abated,
I set...Read More

My heart sought love with a hunger never sated,
dreamt of it with a thirst cupid never fully aided
and a fervidness of longing no embrace abated.
Perpetual disquietude pooled sadness in my heart
where ashes drowned when my dreams burnt down.
