You, unfeeling creatures
Who call yourselves human,

You, fleeting bubbles of reason,
Accidental parasites of time,

You, filthy microbes of cancer,
Ephemera of invincible eternity,

You, who try to fill your vanity
With abominable crimes,

You, insensible butchers of animals,
Notorious destroyers of pastures,

You, contaminators of oceans,
Deleterious polluters of...Read More

A Great Confusion
Is, it, to be called classi?cation?
Or is it a destruction of paci?cation ?
Or are humans still to undergo humanization ?
In which being humane is considered main quali?cation
Which is not being achieved due to illusional mesmerization,
Should we call it misconception ?
Or...Read More

Addiction and Suicide
Drug Addiction and suicide are no joke.
Some people find it entertaining when those individuals croak.
Recovering and living I've seen both sides
I just wish people could live their lives.

Whether it's a pill, powder, or a needle
This epidemic can be unspeakable.
Whether it's...Read More

Misfortune comes at the worst expense,
Anxiety following stress taking over in depth intense.
Air heavily thinning following extreme heat,
Overwhelming sweat covering my hands and feet.
Fire fueling the pain in my chest,
Arms to heavy with legs fighting to rest...
Suddenly consuming me......
The blink...Read More

A hazard warning to wandering poets
I was out a-wandering
when it flew into my head,
a very silly poem,
uninvited, be it said.
If I had just ignored it,
it might have gone away,
but for some mysterious reason
I wrote it down instead...Read More

Accidental Love
Accidental Love
by Dylan Williamson

Love is a fickle thing
That is caught easily
And hearts may sing
Their beats not going slowly
Young love is especially special
In which there is the most attention
And if apart, it may seem fatal
And learn they are together in this...Read More

grave request
by Michael R. Burch

come to ur doom

that u burn with the same antique fire;

for there’s nothing to life but the thrill

Premium Member Remaining Open
A philosophical friend once said
“Love does not reveal all of its secrets to just one person.” 

Replace the word 'Love' 
With 'Beauty' 
Or 'Life' etcetera, etcetera.  

See we all then
Each one of us, so very clearly 

How important sharing,...Read More

Accidental Words

Whispers I should not have heard. 
Things "said"
that have gone way wrong. 
It was just a party. 

It began with, "I don't want to go..."
and ended with, "I am sorry I went..."

Amelie Beth Harris
fresh out womb blurted "ahoy"
melded as genetic
deoxynucleic acid alloy
awkward first time parents

bestowed unconditional love,

Accidental Faith
Born of parents who hoped in the cross
By faith a title 'Christian' am stamped 
But as years flew, the mind unsettled -
On a single faith but probed for truth.

Jesus wise a man of grit but meek
Who placed love before own...Read More

It grew back that way...when I shaved it one night

Premium Member bleak rise of day
in the briskness
of this day
i try to lose myself
in thoughts of you
just to find warmth

there's a hush
in the rise
this morning
as gray clouds
hide the sun
on a tainted
amber horizon

i can almost feel
the bleakness
beset the tone
of this day

my mind
like lost leaves
to become
grounded again

Deer Ruby,

Daddy doubtful hardly Dorothy know you ...
it’s the bare bones, Toto truth

by parrot beaks chirping canary peeps

a private audience of one, burlesque interview

Oh the irony, an Ode to Irony
Something nice from someone not so nice,
Happy things that distract you so much you become sad,
Liking someone leading to stress about liking them,
Not being able to breathe because you are on top of the world and the air is so...Read More

Premium Member Young Love
An innocent glance
A coy blushing smile
Our words will dance
With shy sheepish style

A very quick look
Soft whispered Hi 
The nerve it took
had to at least try

A very young crush
A puppy kinda love
How youth will rush
As love they think of

An accidental touch

A Reason To Be

We will truly only see this life when looking at it from the next.

You will only truly feel this poem
when you see through the poorly
written text.

There are things unseen, between
the lines of shadows and light.
Creeping in unawares 

Knowledge, principalities, integrity,
lessons...Read More

A day off
What is happening
How can this be
I am having a day off just for me

This was not accidental
I looked and planned
The calendar I scanned

But now it is here 
The freedom I feel
I nearly want to do a cartwheel

Where will we go

An Accidental Delete
You sit around trying to find.
A way to share what's on your mind.
And then a title for a poem.
Comes in in hopes to find a home.

You cue the page to write it down.
But in the end it's just a frown.

Say it Softly
Your name is a prerequisite 
for every final and finale. 
An exclamation 
after encores. 
The truest definition of more. 
The atom before cataclysmic spasm 
and all creation that evolved 
after energies first meeting.  
Your name is completely competing

Do you remember childhood wonder?
Do you think it all was a lie?
The wide awake relevance.
The surprise around the corner,
under Life's sleeve.
It wasn't chemicals leading to hope.
It wasn't an accidental birth leading to family.
But it was need leading to love.
