Sunglass Envy

Siphoned light gropes passengers
Hopeful for luminescent hearts,
Arching underneath bombazine drapes
Dusted with passionate legacies
Of original sin and the primogeniture son,
Wicked for nighttime plots savouring
Spicy love, exponential in a vivid darkness.

Random Thoughts *43* Double Acrostic

Fondling to a rhythmic caress. I'm
Obliged as I
Undress you.>> exposing your beautiful,
Radiant body.

Pheromone perfume stimulates my 
Loins and brings forth this
Animalistic fury within me. I
Yearn for all of you.

People who spend their time devoted to poetry
Optimistic people who can be pessimistic as well
Elegant writers throughout society waiting ever so slowly and patiently to be known
Those who utter their feelings in to a well thought out and admired poem
Spirits with a talent, and who are happy.

Pleasing to read, persuades others to write poems as well
Of all forms of literature poems seem the best
Eccentric writings that inspire, express, and inform
Modern society vs. ancient work
Supercilious poems that express thee

thank u for looking at this poem.
hope u enjoyed- WÖLF

Masonic rituals performed by dancing shadows 
Inspired by the pale moons light 
Demons tempting chaste virgins 
Needing comfort in the chilling night 
Incandescent spectres, like mist, crawl from the mere 
Garnished in willow-o-wisp shrouds 
Honour to the midnights guardians 
That cry their allegiance, to the sky, aloud 

Trapped within the tunnel vision 
Harbringer seeks familiar ground 
Granite bars lock in silence 
Interrupted by the baying hound 
Nwyvre seated on throne of stars 
Deeming this the vision hour 
Isis sits nursing dawns unborn light 
Midnight; time of greatest power

Twin Towers

T wo buildings once stood tall
W hen one day they would fall.
I n the sky the planes flew
N ot knowing what they'd do.

T oo many people died
O n that day we all cried.
W hat happened no one knew
E xtreme anger just grew.
R emembering the fear
S o keep your families near.

Alchemy (An Acrostic)

Ancient science launches research towards new technology
Learning new disciplines to increase the power of their patron
Creating new magics; generating spendable gold from lead
Hinting at greater knowledge hidden in the realms of men
Evolving sciences increase the expertise of kingdom soldiers
Machines, potions and tactics to defeat enemies of the king
Yesterday's mysteries leading the world toward today's reality

Criminal Minds

Crimes twisted and horrible are solved by a group of Elite FBI profilers,
re-runs I watch even though I have seen them several times, it matters not.
In each episode the BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) solve a mystery.
My favorite character is Spenser, pretty boy, genius, special agent,
in eleven seasons, I followed each nasty crime, at the end my prize is a quote.
Now, I am waiting breathlessly for Season 12 to start in September.
All the characters lives are part of the drama, that makes it interesting to me.
Last episode of Season Eleven, hunky Derek resigns to care his wife and baby.

Most of the characters are like family, JJ, did you know, Henri is her real son,
interesting how Emily just faded away, and Garcia, baby girl, oh so flirtatious,
now has to find a new man to tease. Rossi, oh he is so serious, but I like him.
Do you know Gideon wanted out, they killed him in Season Ten, that was sad.
So you see, I know them all, I solve crimes with them, I am hooked for sure.

Reaching to the sky in terror, another helpless victim of an
Inconceivable crime cries out for mercy. Blood curdles as screams 
Pierce the night of London town. Who is the madman on the loose 
Preying on the defenseless? The answer comes from hell…
Evil is lurking in every shadow. Do not close your eyes. The nightmare is   . 
Real, sinister, maniacal…No one is safe from Jack.

Acrostic Word

Grey-robed ladies materialise at castles
Hideous red-eyed entities hover in woods
On horseback, headless riders gallop past
Silently, spectres watch and cause unease 
Throwing objects at exorcists, spirits laugh

...Formidable treat he stress
At the early hour of this day.
No pain, no gain- All is still well.
Centenary dream is a luxury few can reach.
Yours truly, let your fate decide.

The Gulf Oil Spill

Gulf oil spilled
Useless big waste
Lives were taken
Foolish mistake

Oil will spew
In such turmoil
Loss no one knew

So much damage
People showed care
Invading land
Like a nightmare
Let’s clean this up!

Dark and Mystical

Darkness my realm of forever seals my place.
A world that delivers my minds perfect face,
Remarkably my fantasy I cannot tell a soul.
Known only in the recesses of my minds goal,

A shadow follows my every move each night.
Now more than ever the moon glows so bright.
Demons not exactly, just my dream contrite.

My dream is to be announced upon a star.
Yes to be exclaimed upon universe so far.
Sealed and granted upon mystery flight.
Taken freely from my unglamorous sight,
I am the one that centuries have sought.
Calling for my dreams, nature never fought.
All upon the night, fantasy continues to grow.
Listen to the eve of darkness, you will know.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Your Favorite Habit-Forming TV Show - Poetry Contest
Sponsor: Tom Quigley 

Beneath the shadows Buffy prowls to use “Mr. Pointy” her favorite stake
Under the tunnels she finds the blood suckers and lives she does take
Falling in love with Angel who is a good vampire with an actual soul
Feeling compassion for the worst killer in history sure took a toll
Young love was found as he fell in deep love with her too

The bad thing is if he feels one moment of true joy they were through
He found that joy and became the evil man as he’s ever been
Everyone in Sunnydale became enemies of this once true friend

Vindictive by nature he traveled out and went on a killing spree
After a few weeks he found his way back to the arms of Buffy
Memories they share but they can no longer be together
Poor Buffy had hoped they would be soul-mate’s forever
In the cemetery is where her and the crew slays vampires
Revealing the madness of also sending them to hell by fire
Each of them help; Willow, Xander and her mentor Mr. Giles

Searching for ways to save the day they travel for many miles
Lurking in darkness, Spike, also known as “William the Bloody”,
Attacked and killed innocents for years, yet fell in love with Buffy
Yet another vampire in love with the enemy who won’t slay a friend
Every day preventing apocalypses while to hell vampires she did send
Regardless of the chaos and love triangles she saved the world in the end

Haunted Red Barn

H awthorne bushes wildly overgrown, line the mud and gravel driveway
A bandoned by a farmer years ago, sold to someone unknown to all
U ntouched by human hands, it now appears to be totally deserted
N oticeable is the large red barn that sits predominantly on the land
T rees and uncut crops fill the fields which roll down the hill to the river
E very night lights are seen moving around the isolated farm property
D iesel engines are heard rumbling over the wind very late at night

R umors spread about the haunted red barn down the country road
E ven neighbours wonder why a beautiful barn sits alone and empty
D aylight hours offer little explanation of its existence, no movement seen

B ut is it really empty -  is someone being hidden there against their will
A larming questions arise in our minds on this country road, imaginations
R un wild and every terrible scenario is suggested until we get an answer
N iagara police bust this crystal meth lab- one of the largest found in Ontario  

* This is a true story, for years we walked by this haunted red barn on our country road. November 2010 police from the USA, Canadian-American border, Niagara, Hamilton and Toronto police busted one of the largest crystal meth labs - now that’s Scary!

Mysterious woman ran in the middle of the night
Yelling with panic the name of her dearly loved 
Shaking with goose bumps at the bad feeling 
Terrible event robbed his physical presence
Eluding a true that affected a third person 
Rifle sound broke the peace of a small town 
Yearning a forbidden love that ended in tragedy

It just hit the paper the moment I hold it
How does this pen know what I’m thinking? 
It seems to be able to read my mind; even without moving 
A muscle it just floats I’m out of words now but
It can read my deepest thoughts even the ones that

I never hope I will have a chance to hear in this lifetime
A pen made of ink should not be able to do such wonders
A crowed come from all the corners of the world
They stare in amusement each eager to get their grasp on it
Some say it was made for me but doubters think otherwise

The rumours have been flying around ever since
I got my hands to this pen; bets have come
All with good and tempting but I told them 
This is my pen and mine alone unless it decide to break our pact

You are my pen that will write to world
You are the ink to my life
This is our life that we wished
This is the movie that you loved watching
This is really what you have been looking for
Keep writing my mystery pen

Everytime I Look Around The Corner

I live a life in a place where alcohol violence reigns supreme/ 
over a dying culture split in se7en groups of se7enty times se7en of rival teams/
 I hear my brothers hollers I hear my sisters screams/ 
I see people live among broken glass like that of many broken dreams/
 I sometimes wish I could not see what my two eyes sometimes see/ 
I cant act blind as if it were just a brush off my sleeve/
 The more I lose in life the more it seems the less I need/
 I try and overcome my own selfish greed/ 
I got a child on the way I now look at what kind of role model I'd be/ 
I was was incarcerated so I must not take for granted for the simple fact that Im free/
 But it hard with tattoos on my face in place where tattoos like mine seem a disgrace/
 Lord watch over me as I take last place in this life game race/ 
It not a matter of being first second or third Lord cuz all I need iz your grace/
 help me to better walk off this destructive road and slow my pace/ 
Just take me now if Im done with your purpose if thats the case/
Because I dont want to live like I got to look over my shoulder right around the corner....

Hooves, with majestic rhythm pound the ground
Off the beat'n path. Roam'n wild, roam'n free
Refined in grace, loyal, noble. So missunderstood
Stunning in appearance, with mane and tail adrift
Enchantedly each strand of hair, dances in the wind
Spirited, radiant, dynamic in every way.

Will I See You Tomorrow

Tomorrow is another day
Outstretch your wings and fly
Milestones can be reached
Only if you beleive in thy self
Relic in the thought
Relax your mind and soul
Or it just won't happen
Will be put off and forgotten
Instead of achieving set goals
So bask under the sun
Ask for a little help from above
Never doubt  miracles from God
Or question His motives
To make things happen
Hunger will disapate
Every plate shall be filled
Rejoice and sing aloud
Dance to your hearts content
Another sunrise is coming
You're going to just love to see

''come fluttering words,come drifting words to me...''

Dripping in love, oh' such sweet scent.
Adoring nature-the essence of innocence.
Projected sight of this poised princess.
Hands of pearls,to feel her delicate touch.
Nestled in her presence,eyes linger from afar.
Edward watches his lady fair-silence-she sees him not.

Humanities Doorway

Stretching, far as my eyes can see in the night sky,
Thousands and thousands of spaceships float by.
Again and again this dream taunts me, with no cry.
I have no delusion; I know this is a dream so dry.
Rolling across, heavens as in motion picture mode.
Was this an omen or just my mind, or some code?
Alien spaceships, different shapes and preparations,
Yes they continually traveled in parade formations.

To the stars I look at in infatuation and dismay.
Our destiny unclear, no aliens exist they say.

The stars have always had amazement and intrigue.
Hear my plea and thoughts without any fatigue.
Each day, discovering other species, beyond our league,

Stars are just another ocean to be examined even more.
Traces of life have already been found on our measly tour.
Arrogance is just a disease to portray, we are alone for sure.
Reality is, the most nearest planets, we should not ignore.
Serve not to abandon our journey, it is humanities door.

Another Blue sky

~A distant island still undiscovered, nearing magnetically to its mystery, distancing me from myself every moment, remembering to forget the return path, even my earth is puzzled,...revolve or rotate? another blue sky beyond this one is calling.~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~000~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Leaves A Handiwork

Leaves on the trees in my yard
Even now some are falling hard.
All of them have their own distinct look.
Very often we keep them in a book.
Everyone of them is beautiful and so grand.
Seeing that they were made by God's great hand!

Warped Reality

All the time I was descending into that deep, dense cavern of a hole

Between my shoulders an uneasy crick appeared and seemed to slip into my soul. 

Overhead, jagged, stalactites hung, daring any to allow this cave to be explored

Mystic webs floated within the shadows, trailing over rocks marked and scored.

Illusions I discovered, some buried, some cast by an evil mind, ate at my very soul

Numbing fear suddenly binds me and I am falling ever faster and deeper into the hole.

At the last minute I stop, hearing, angry sounds and howls in the shadows cast

Then I see a creature grotesque and ancient; a nightmare ripped from my past.

In the mists, the cloying stench of the mutilated destruction claws at my nose

Opting my brain to scream,'run', but too late the creature has come in close.

Nightmares everywhere fade, reality winks in and slowly I become aware

So maybe, I'll buy, just one more ticket,  'Abominations', is a  really cool scare!

I unfold this truth shamelessly,
Will it cost me very dearly?
Ease each fear of my reality,
Your understanding won't be petty...
Mind if words are spoken quickly?

Crookedly cunning,
Hurtful and sly;
Always a liar:
Risky to buy.
Lacking integrity,
And a willingness to try:
This true chameleon,
An artful scallion;
Not likely to change,until he die.

Do you believe in dragons, my dear?
Reluctantly I do more each year.
Anguish and possibility bring fear.
Great and strong creatures to bear,
Our minds say no, though take care.
No myth is without reality, sincere.
See now, come on, it’s a dare.

Admiral Cardula VI

A legend that has been used and abused so much,
Deals with the undead, blood drinkers as such,
Many stories from all over the globe are told.
I have seen every movie, ever made and sold.
Real Vampires exist of this I am so very sure.
An evil form, well maybe, and without a cure.
Legends all begin with some sort of partial truth.

Can anyone definitely be sure there are no such things?
Ages have past and we still find new creatures on earth.
Realistically I cannot believe all the tales that clings.
Dracula the most famous Vampire for all it is worth.
Unites all the lore, that humankind has believed.
Listening and embellishing, has been what perceived.
A soul taken, by another has to be evil, they all sleuthed.

Victims of such a violent death are bound to be evil.
I would expect more from today’s world, less medieval.

written as an anagram for 
Vladimir Dracula
