Stand Up And Take Charge

I  sense a truce amongst the people of this world 
and though we need to practice abstinence of touch,

Yes we got cel phones, we got skype,

Many dry seasons have passed since his last drink

John retrieved himself from a slow deadly brink

Gone are the wretched times he puked in the sink

But he remembers the vile vomit coloured in pink

Blood and acid flushed away from churning bile

Self-destruction...Read More

Was a virgin
long time
waited until he
pulled back that veil;
He kissed me for the first time.

I, never wanted to be
Handled nor touched,
he being my first,
I became weak, for the musk of him.
Innocence replaced with lust.

Through him, I learned to...Read More

Premium Member An A Lesson - CA
Angels observe in un-articulated anguish from above,
 anxiety afflicted by appalling accelerated ambition of the aggregate  
that redefines the archaic, apocalyptical allure 
 driving humanity to its brink of active self annihilation;

the A team
Absolve us all of anguish
 When appetency goes awry 
The allure of the atrocious 
Can take precedence over the auspicious.
Nought can assuage the anxiety  of  abomination 
Flowing from such appetites
Ancillary to our basest desires.
Saying amen leaves us

I'd be damned to quit
Putting out some brand new s***

In my a step a brand new skip

Steering wheel with a brand new grip
In a brand new whip
With a brand new chick

Premium Member Paused a Day
Medication paused a day
the balm of urge then delayed
with a will to live without
if only for the briefest time

until the need comes again
sight unseen to other folks
yet more present than concerns
voiced for the abstinence

when that fix to ease the pain
sometimes...Read More

Really, no need to fuss,

he was 
a bon vivant
not denying himself
any luxuries in life
did not believe
in abstinence

live to the fullest
was his motto
the gifts of life
we will never
pass this way again

a starving artist
his pockets
were empty
but his heart
not one regret    ...Read More

In the doldrums of a hushed space,
Of a part of vacuous open to silence,
Undisturbed stares party to patience,
The essence shared natures reticence,
Lies a formidable barrier of hinderance,
Unseeable with a naked eyes abstinence,
Choose to remain adamant in forbearance,
At times happens between...Read More

Mardi Gras Madness
This Tuesday will be the fat day,
to purge all your sin on the streets.
The sun will bring the ash of Wednesday,
with foreheads displaying the Holy Trinity.

Masks of feathers and gold, beautiful and sublime
People with umbrellas dancing to the second line.

Grasping At Thin Air

You say you’ve always tried 
to reach out to me,
even to the outer limits of your patience — 
That lofty trust atmosphere

But, just how far
did you try to reach within
the deep, shadow spaces of your heart
And grab a shovel hold...Read More

One Year Alcohol Free
365 days of the Alcohol Experiment
After 30 days the need to continue was evident.

Italian adventure to Rome Florence and Venice, cosy restaurants and no wine a penance!
Elation on completion of a holiday with alcohol deletion.
Real rest, renewal and recuperation.

Bill Bulldog we had named him

the years apart are nothing
On the steps of Congress St or somewhere college town
We talked about how smart we were and world domination
And laughed

And our common friend wasn't our friend

His chemistry intrigued me.

“Hello pretty lady, spotlight the power of love in me,
Though we`re surrounded by greed.
Your magnificence is killing every bad omen seen,
I wish you know that highest grandness.
Which I see playing the role of abstinence,
Concerning the satisfaction of allusive sexiness.
