Premium Member IF I WAS GOD FOR A DAY
Sometimes when the world saddens me
at night when I fold my hands to pray
I like to think how things would be quite different
If I was God…for a day.

The first thing I’d do is eliminate hate
I’d throw everyone’s hate away
I’d replace...Read More

Shallow
A rippling reflection, startled waters
An image to capture, searching for a caption
Generational gaps pronounced, the margins denounce
Disquiet often lands in silence
On a path lit by the lonely.

Ambling in circles, for lack of more apt phrasing
Direction always persuasive, sincerity dissolved in...Read More

Never Say Never
The life I live now bears no resemblance 
To the life lived four years ago
I have no regrets
We children of a lesser God know a freedom
That those bound by societal rules never find
The cost is so very high as freedom...Read More

Premium Member Children Of A Lesser God
Contagion ceremoniously weaves its harvest into a fabric of un-social inclusion
Haunted by lack of humility and lost serenity it serenades through the masses
In God We Trust but who listened to Nietzsche who proclaimed that she is dead
Lest we believe that...Read More

Melancholy,
a storyteller, a poet, a painter, photographer;
like finding words to express me, doing sketches, and paintings,
have ideas about displaying my art, creating a nature journal, my garden.
Sometimes, I feel lonely and lost, oh will these seedlings ever grow,
I fear death,...Read More

OPRAH WINFREY
Opening minds to change

Perishing painful remains

Resolving love and hate

Acceptance permeates

Helping pain abate

Winning hard fought wars

In opening new doors

Never shown before

Facing what is past

Reaching to outlast

Everything untrue

You did it OPRAH – You...Read More

The Hourglass
There's a hole in my soul, so wide and so vast,
it gives me no future and leaves me no past.
Remorse and regrets, for the choices I've made,
now hammer my brain, in a living cascade,
of roads left un-taken and paths unexplored,
of...Read More

Curiosity's bane
A tree, a seed, prescribed, off-limits.
Naked, clothed, some years, fresh still,
Fair, hell, firm, etc.
Dangling tags, seen on anything

Man learns, as his feet stands and sits.
He meets firm labels and loud leads.
Patterns his feet flow in, with ease.
And ends, well-clear from...Read More

Life is time that's awarded to do what you will.
It's your deeds then recorded that chapters will fill.
It's a miracle given, divinely ordained,
That by passions is driven, by conscience restrained.

Life's pretend and illusion and fantastic dreams
It's mistakes and confusion, excitement...Read More

An Old Friend
Staring down at waters murky 
Under tattered aging timbers
My thoughts went back to the past
And the life that I remembered.

As I stood on those rustic boards
And looked all round about me
Came thoughts of life’s moments lost
And those things that would...Read More

A BETTER VERSION OF ME
Free from fears
It is love that makes the heart acne for more
It is the upbringing that reaches the goals
It is the pain that brings strength
Sometimes you have to fall in order to get up

Free from unnecessary distractions
It is ignorance that...Read More

Sachwa & Percepthany come at nights moons bright light,
there love for each other is forbidden,
but that does not stop them,
he grabs her strongly and tells her not to worry,
they are both of age bound by their ancestry,
but both ignore,

At Sunset
He watched as the sunset over a tranquil sea
nothing about it's beauty reflected his mood
a bright moon shone onto the water
how can it be he pondered that I am to leave?
acceptance came slowly, with fear and sorrow

maybe it's time for something different
The fire is gone- 
Doused by my inability to fight back.
I recoil at the idea of confrontation- 
My hands shake thinking about it; 
The hairs on my body stand rigid. 


I think I might be broken. 
I’m folding in on...Read More

The Inner Psychopath
Through the set screen of a cower cover
A tyrant terror of the self resides; 
Forming a merged mind with opposing sides. 
Persuasion being his asset to uncover
Your desires and wants he will discover; 
With deceiving decisions he provides,
His slyness and...Read More

My veil falls to my feet

The good witch is still trying hard to collect the future

Nostalgic and post-modern she fondles her crystal ball

With soft hands she embraces Gaia and its sepia hue

Oblivious to oblivion she attempts to elude the inevitable 

A monochrome reminder of the...Read More

Just a thought
I’ve never been a leader
But thought that I’d be leading
If achieving all my goals
Helped others start believing

I’ve never been intelligent
But thought I could advise
If learning from mistakes
Is what makes a person wise

I’ve never been content
But thought I’d be at peace

Anomaly
No matter what my politics
It’s just one part of me.
We each possess a bag of tricks;
It’s no anomaly

That I can write a perfect rhyme
And yet the way I vote
May contradict your views so I’m
Not worth the poems I wrote.

This truth of mine
As a child, I learned that life is cruel
And justice is blind
My loving family filled with secrets and care
All I ever wanted 
A love to call my own
A place to be unafraid of my surroundings 
Why am I ever denied

I’ve never felt this way before.
The joy comes from the depths of my soul.
I don’t know how to explain this feeling.
It’s a feeling that is beyond words of description.

I’ve never imagined so much passion from the heart.
It’s almost like I’ve...Read More
