      Taste the antagonisms,
      dare to surrender  to impulses
      be perplexed by abysses,
      not living before wrists ...

Autumn’s fall grew large as leaves caressed the barefoot soul’s content

Another summer had given way to lengthened shadows’ fragrant scent

Musky soil gathered a gentle morning sun just enough for safe sorrows 

In the forest of mind after relentless heat gave...Read More

He ignored the warning signs and moved carefully forward and backward

In the rocking chair of swept memories and went for a wild white knuckle ride 

Swayed but not faltering although he swung like a junky on amphetamine pills

Soaked in recollections...Read More

Grand Canyon
Tremendous vastness of Grand Canyon,
the earth drops away in escalation
reveling rims of canyon elevations.
River is slicing rocks
exposing chasm of gorges.
Chiseled by water 
vertical walls of rocks
are descending into abysses.
Canyon rims of mountains chasm,
eroding and falling down
in sediment and loose rocks.

Sedimentary...Read More

Premium Member Life Spent All Alone
Abandoned by love and sent to the shore
The waves of despair have set me aside
Where amidst sweet sorrows of tears do pour
Upon where ambient anguish does hide

Sacrificial skies swallow only hope
Dispersed ruins of the depriving deep
A seductive sanctioned slippery slope
Where...Read More

Premium Member Entering of Realms

Thrown are we, irresolute innocence through regurgitated realities…
Distortions of parallel paradigms-
excrements of encrypted rhymes,
Sacrificial sapient slaves marooned by masochistic mortalities’
Prolific pondering of minds within spatial exponential existence...
Social intorsions of inauspicious illusions-
captive calamitous confusions,
Warring machines mandating annihilation with rigorous resistance
Tempestuous tyrants...Read More

Genuine Kisses
My love, I sent you genuine kisses 
From high up above
I am an arrow of fire and rain – 
That’s what I thought of

I have fears and anxieties, 
So wash them away with fire and rain
I will rise up again...Read More

Across my land, abysses gnaw at automobiles,
From the foot of the mountain, 
To the shores of the oil fountain.
Certificated youths drinking piss to mellow their brains,
Clutching at wheels, dodging bumps into fog lights.
“Stupid, ing dog” curse survivors of amputation...Read More

Rhapsody of the deep oceans,
Fathomless abysses, soft music flows.
Quietus, in respect of all the dead.
Eternity defines these dark depths.
Story? As yet, waiting to be read.

Fathomless thoughts abound up there
Quietus, debt paid  freedom rules
Eternity where lies...Read More

Hues claim color blue for their reflection

Deep In The Mountain Tarns

Deep in the mountains,  
  Beyond a lost road,
Mystical spirits
Have their wild abode.

Lonely abysses
Of primeval dread,
Forests were freely 
the shy fairies tread.

The eagle hovers
In safety there,
With keen eyes watching
Nest and lair.

Green are those waters,
Dark...Read More

On her wheelchair. No writing from a limited body
The sand waiting from her what in life is more salient
After she saw the old man, the woman and the boy

Fussin', Cussin' and all that nonsense
You see the past in me
I'm alive...I survived the disdainful rainfall
Don't be shy to ask for help

Can't help, but frankly yelp

Banished by Zeus’s jealous wife, Hera, 
the lively Oread, Echo, 
began to wander haplessly
into the mountain ranges
The depths of dark abysses
The doleful tunnels and
The abandoned mines,
The desolate caves,
valleys and ravines. 

Lovelorn and pining 
for her lost love, Narcissus,
the once loquacious...Read More

Smooth as ebony silk, black aquatic waves the melting
Essence of liquid evil, stirring this lake placid of our
Eternal nightmares, deadened space in the fathoms
Deep, beneath the dreaming realm for which we sleep.

Epistemology in Fog
When I look out on a fog-swept night
Of black abysses and milky light
Seamlessly, softly inter-curled,
In human knowledge I see the world.

For the boundless pit of the human plight
Enshrouds the knowable, stops our sight,
Save where bursts from the light below
