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;
those moments of antiquated adversarial abstractions

Contents of Mind Accelerated
Contents of my mind are accelerated, 
Reading books and becoming educated; 
Pictures seen, 
In my teen, 
And knowledge had been consummated.

THOU FEAR OF UNCERTAINTY

You came,
Tears of outraged vanity blurred my vision,
I couldn’t stand your violent and mendacious tongue,
The accelerated beat of my thoughts intensified

Offering me an artificial and delusive smile of languor.
Today, the babble of brooks have grown audible,

Regrets now whizzed on with...Read More

Trace of Accelerated Pace
Trace of Accelerated Pace

We would have to track down each trace,
Of what they saw at an accelerated pace;
Intend,
No end;
Realized around in a circle had been race.

Choking Back The Tears
Choking Back The Tears!

This papa did accurately
surmise undeclared war
strong armed lance pierced my armour,
ah...how fondly he recalls
early fatherhood days of yore,
when daddy's first born girl

did effusively adore
yours truly, he likened self as topnotch
trooper, who mustered vigour
exhibiting untrammeled unconditional
tender loving behaviour

Broken and decayed
Like an abandoned egg in the refuse dump,
My soul and mind has started to rot.
Charcoaled by the heat and lines of your lies and betrayals,
Your words pierced my heart with pang,
Leaving me to gasp for breath.

I'm existing in a world...Read More

Blind Force Denial
As I sit here and think about it

so many scarred memories, crashing
waves are thoughts of fate
that have been scorched with denial

blinded by a pit of despair, lonlier everyday
hiding within myself, hard to face the truth
the wheels screech down the road,

Be Still
Life had accelerated
to a dizzying pace
do this-
go there-
a madcap race
that made no sense
no reason or rhyme
but you never noticed
for who had the time?

You meant no harm
but spiritual disciplines
that once meant so much
~ had to go ~
as they seemed outmoded
cumbersome and...Read More

Smitten to the Core

Wandering hearts
star-crossed
Another silent night 
celestial pulse 
scarlet letter comet tarry
Earth angels cry
A stellar love longing
sigh written in the moonlit sky
Straying asteroidal attitude
lonely tale
ice particle trail
Send out an SOS solar flare
in search of a 
quasar pulmonary spark rescue
Solo silhouette
merging hopes dying
Void...Read More

An Exercise In Futility
A howler when I purse my lips
Cutting off my nose to spite my face
When on purpose I beat my chest in cribs
Where restraint, respect and reflection erase the trace and brace

Immersed in consistency, competency and congruency
Within realms usually teeming with...Read More

Premium Member The Ages of Carolyn
She grew up in the South, in the age of Jim Crow
In a town divided, no black friends did she know

She has her father's russet red hair and mother's walnut-brown eyes
The rarest combination, I surmise
She was a daddy's girl, at...Read More

Premium Member Life Accelerated
Someone shot a sloth-
in time-lapse photography
Descending a tree
 with Charlie Chaplin movements
minus mustache,
its tail hooked over its arm like a walking stick

The eye never moved–
like a dancer's in pirouette,
sunlight flashing like a million paparazzi

Overcome by clouds-
a most un-sloth-like creature.

By the Numbers

Everybody love to say they’re number one,
but it takes two
to make beautiful music, 
so we’re told
Pitch perfect
That one favorite song two lovers have,
it never gets old
After ninety nine repeats, 
it sounds one zero zero multiple beautiful than it did before

Adrenaline is brown as excess speed demonstrates
An uncontrollable release of breakfast at an accelerated rate
Don't mean to be gross
But this is pretty close
An enormous expulsion of brownness it also creates

ACCELERATED TO WORDS WITH DRAMA

  accelerated to words with drama and life

Premium Member Romance, a scientific definition
Romance is a science:
it’s all about some equation, 
not necessarily based on calculation,
but certainly on chemistry
 (which is a mystery),
strengthened by physics,
particularly by conduction and radiation, 
thereby forming an electromagnetic field,
which facilitates certain biochemical reactions,
setting up and, in turn, accelerated...Read More

RELIGIOUS TRAIN TO PEACE
There's a Train
Going to Peace Station.
Christians, Buddhists,
Hindus, Atheists,
Each occupied a Compartment,
But never Bothered one another,
Just like the Two Rails of the Track
That Travel Together but Never Meet.
Everyone's Ticket is to Peace,
They traveled in Communities and
Their Compartment Number
Never really mattered.

Then came...Read More

We Were Never Here
Yesterday there was
another killing suicide bombing
Today there is
more refugee deaths by drowning
Tomorrow for sure,
will be another slow death day for the poor

Conditions are getting worse,
not better ... it’s all rotten...Read More

I AM LAZARUS

I once died
the road was dark and hazardous,
but I found my way through the great spirit
and came back to life like Lazarus,

I guess God has a plan,

Each Step That I Take
Short steps and strides 
Make me do different paces; 
Accelerated brisk walk and run
Make me leave the traces.

Reaching my dreamed goal though
Needs me to look back at my marks; 
Only those tracks of righteousness
Will let me walk in the parks.

Hungover Ego
Tripped over your intoxication

of a darkly delivered potent punch

flowing in absurd contradictions,

wallowing mid drunkenly exhilarated

gulps of denial's cursed vintage,

swallowing elixir's exhales in a shot glass

engulfing reflection's accelerated fire,

bourgeois Machiavellianism slurs topped

off machinations' idiosyncratic delusions,

'twixt boozy sips of head game’s hungover...Read More
