The day has actually come
Halting normal life on earth
Everyone felt the abrupt change
Unexpectedly dissolving our mirth
Now the enemy is creeping our way
Invisibly attacking our precious nation
Thank God we have a mighty fine President

Premium Member An Abrupt Unexpected Good Bye
I cannot tell you I am not hurt
Because I am crucified.
Did you ever love me or was it all a lie?
I need a few seconds to get some control.
Was it the red-headed woman?
Or the blonde little troll?

Do not tell me...Read More

VALOR
Cold creeps
from swift whirlwinds
left me quivering with chattered teeth
and drenching with sweat.
Trumpeting;
foreshadow of war. 

There I was
aghast on the battlefield
accoutered with no armor or shield
and no cavalrymen to deploy;
ashen with fear.

Venomous arrowheads
seared me with scars
as a sword ravaged my heart.
I...Read More

Why do some people commit suicide?
When is enough enough
What makes them decide
To finish living
Before the end of their ride
Why do they want to come to an abrupt end
Nobody knows what's around the bend
Perhaps they are under too much stress
Have feelings...Read More

You let your fingers fall along my keys, such a simple and amazing harmony.
The music is sounding from your touch, a lovely sound isn’t too much.
The world comes to life with each sound, look over there! She hears its sound!

Premium Member - I Was Too Young To Understand -

He let me see his scars,
they was as deep as a bottomless ocean
Every day his demons played to dance
Like salt in the wounds, a pitiful truth
The dark voices he heard in the shadows
It was not an illusion,
he had heard them...Read More

Premium Member SHAKEN BABY

Oh the sham and serious shake,
  Earthen crust erases land.
Upset moon mourns its men.
Uplift of craven shore and ben.
  O the Winter its downer tanned.

Of creature great and downy lost,
  The surgeon’s fissure quite abrupt.
The baby’s tears...Read More

Praying and kneeling,
My God had set me reeling;
Have found His feeling.

While Jesus had wept;
His promises He still kept;
At doing adept.

God  had been abrupt;
Will not let us be corrupt;
Then with God we supped.

By God welcome were,

I do not play games
I tell the truth
It might hurt at first
But in the long run it hurts less than anything else

Some say I am abrupt
Others use other words to describe me
Honest? Not really. Trustworthy? Maybe a few
One thing I...Read More

Thirty Something
The first was a wee bird 
How clear the glass 
Its thud was loudly heard 
Rendered it to the earthen grass…
The second was the pig, squealing 
Yielding its life in a blood-letting, crass 
Still heard inside, the porky-pealing…

Dark crown positions an imminent moon,
while the car benign a simple swan tune,
by a male world-renowned steady croon,
quaffs from a sweetheart, abrupt swoon,
as twain souls dissolution, way too soon,

If I have the time to play grownup games 
it isn't fair to quibble if I lose.
For though the rules are designed to confuse
smoldering embers don't equate to flames.

Innocence is a precursor for pain

A little boy decided, he would be very brave
He gazed upon the dragon, then prodded him with a stick
The dragon woke up, belching flames, the boy jumped back quick!

She was short-spoken, curt, and abrupt.
Her tight ears were closed, her mouth was cupped.
Not unlike her dad, ole mean McDuff.

She told it like it was, spoke her mind.
More honest girl you would never find.
I’d want her to back me in...Read More

There you are again, showing up unexpectedly, in what I see.
Taking my mind on a trip like a screaming train.
As the whistle of truth echoing, is still left unheard.
Rumblings on the tracks, shaking cars, about to derail.
But, it keeps on...Read More

A rock wall in your kitchen,
Why? The neighbor asked me.

We would not be having slumber parties.

Did your grandchildren paint your front door?
She queried as we approached the house.
This is when I resolved to not let her in.

There was a boy who liked to drink beer
He'd been more naughty than nice all year
   Abrupt low of energy 
   Caused by sudden allergy 
Will make for a sober Christmas cheer
