Premium Member The Red Shoes
The red shoes are shabby
discolored with champagne.
They started so bright and full of life,
now they sit blue and dejected.

She had to have them!
She saw the ruby slippers
that might take her home;
	anywhere not here.

She would gloss them all up,
work out the...Read More

STRAY DOG
He who is born in the ruthless streets of a busy city

A family
Nor a companion

My homes differ from time to time
Abandoned houses, alleys anywhere the streets welcomes me
I am at the mercy of...Read More

Balmy january fourth two thousand twenty
I ran than jumped high
into the upper atmosphere
like a young frisky
buck naked and bare
no matter weight of world
and personal woes oppressive,

free, able, ready, and
willing to dare

Premium Member her senescence
senescence 
not something
i am accustomed to
in the semblance
of life

like this tree
i stand here
denuded
as i watch
leaves 
falling 
down
slipping
through
my hands
unsound

i try
to embrace
them
one by one
as they tumble
only to watch
them perish
before 
my eyes

crumbling
in fragments
like memories
buried
in the depths
of mind

silenced
in the shadows
of death
they lay
yet i walk
closer

Premium Member Invisible Scars
Knife-like, piercing words of contempt stab the jugular vein
Exsanguinating victim; accustomed to the blood and sharp pain...
gone numb while slowly dying a death by a thousand cuts.

Premium Member A Long Bus Ride


The bus is half-full, empty seats are occupied
by the soon to be born, the soon to be dead,
those in transition.

The medium knows he is a guest in a stranger’s dream.
When he thinks about this, he shivers and turns
to the window,...Read More

And it cost me absolutely nothing at all

Apart from my time and cost of the call

Yet left me feeling a Million Dollar's

I gaze horizons of the day

But there before my eyes does shine
A moment caught in time
Where everything is beautiful
Because I call you mine

Oh wretched soul
Oh wretched soul that I am!
Easily swayed and swallowed,
By the bright dazzles of this time,
Sin has made its high walls in my heart
And locked me away by its gates,
From ever seeing my Redeemer's face.

Oh wretched soul that I am!

Unbowed
How would it feel having no single woe to bear,
In that sooty heart oft stung by ceaseless tear?
Wouldn't the sobs-accustomed soul court pain,
To save those melancholic rhythms in its stain?

For that erstwhile...Read More

To the tune of Dust thou art and to dust returnest
