The World, The Storyteller
In-between the babel of a troubled soul
In abeyance, the thought of neglection arose
The blood boiled, the body cooked
The figure fell in flat command
The jurist justified themselves unjust

multitude babbled, the wise bundled
Oko-Oloko dun Pokete
Prita Iyalaaje, Aloo apaamo
The world, the storyteller

A man of some years with a face of little value,
Had a raggedy satchel and a beat up tackle box,
Both of which, were worth more than a face,
It set next to an opened cooler exposed to sun,
Therein, sat a jar...Read More

Grief stricken spirit;
          Heartfelt depthless soul; tear ducts
filled yon banks hold; spreads

The Cost Of Truth And Love
Who comes with a self sustaining fire
To hold inside the heart for our survival
For you and I there is no gravity
Between the stars there are no secrets
No place to hide from truth and love

There is only love and us contained

Lachrymal layers within the Abyss of love’s laments that reminisce
Upon the edge a barbarous bliss which began with the eternal kiss
Where serpentine shadows swell and the jaded jackals joyously yell
Riding the conundrum carousel an elliptical obliquity of their dwell

Embers of My Past
Written: Tom

On this cloudy winter day
Smoke, taking on the characteristics 
Of a ghost from embers past,
Floats the evening zephyrs,
Filling nostrils
With infidelity’s stench;
Their place of abeyance,
A hillside just north of town;

Fearless affection
Romantic abeyance
evokes such strong emotion
that leaves one flooded
and renders the heart motionless.

The heart is a lonely hunter,
nagging and urging my body,
then leaves a constantly fixed mark  -
perhaps emptiness…

Marooning my softly mourning mind,
with divine appointment:
a velvet-smooth caress
absolves my fearless affection....Read More

Invisible man
I am your invisible man,
Who is weary of revelations.

Warmth from a rub,
A cry, and the tremor
Are all within sight except your love,
Which remains defiant.

I drag a corpse
Whose funeral
Is kept at abeyance
Until you see my face
Every time you unbotton yourself
For your...Read More

Edited by:  Sparkle Jordan

There’s an abeyance between
the spaces of life -

where one can rest for a while.

A place where all outside noise 
is suspended.

Five Generations
No one is smiling
as if the photo was taken years ago
when exposure was long
with movement held in abeyance
like dreams on the frontier
when great-great-gran was young
younger than the one she holds 
in the crook of an arm,
propped on the chair that...Read More

Between the Tick and the Tock
Between the tick and the tock
time is held in abeyance.
Marvelous things can happen
in that endless, timeless place.

Ribbons of Light
Looking North, an evening sight,
undulating ribbons, gleaming bright, 
pierce the gloom of darkest night.
Constantly flashing red and white,
snaking slowly till out of sight.
Eager for haste, anxious for flight:
yet held in abeyance, this evening rite,
no longer a commuter’s delight.

Premium Member Lessons From Ants
In the world of ants, 
It's language of silence. 
In caverns, soils and on trees, 
It's their realm of pleasure. 
Even to distant places, 
They move like soldiers. 
Their words unheard, 
But united they are. 
Their works, man's wonder. 
They...Read More
