Premium Member Our Fitting Fall

A naked bleakness dressed with sparkling stars,
Dance sweetly taffaria fairies wands,
Auburn burnish Terra foundation scars,
Strewn light rods frock poise for their eager bonds.

Savor sparked light, plated of painted blends,
Generous crops hatched for harvesters pluck,
Heap hued leaves for dives of little...Read More

How many Roads

Black as Black and White? or Unicorns and Rainbows?

Unitarian 1 and only 1 
Trinitarian 3 exist in 1 
An answer arrives unheralded 

Reversed in Time
Something has lit the fuse
something without colour sparks

Twice the night had fallen upon a sleepless slumber,
Yet again awoken by winter when the third was three in number.

I sense that a silence doth sneak ‘tween cracks of weathered wood,
Conniving with that which shadows show to those whose senses...Read More

Candy Heart
My candy heart bleeds with severity,
hemorrhaging despair and melancholy.

A new heartache for you to ignore,
what once was good will be no more.

My candy heart is achromatic,
devoid of color, systematic.

Black and grey is what I feel,
void of complexion nothing seems real.

Premium Member Why Bother
The clock chastises me,
as painted petals bloom brilliance
in illuminated wonder that attempts 
escape from the hidden crevices
deep within my beleaguered mind.

The beauty I seek is but an allusive dream,
     flowing rags of worthless chattel

The White Devil's Pride
Bearing a European haploid, I should be branded by shame.

I am the White Devil as they claim.

The Ivory Dragon with razor fangs.

He who breathes flames of artillery; consuming...Read More

Yourself and no one else
If you lived to tell a lie  about your true identity then you never lived at all. 
Emotionally in the inside you might break down, your not your true self to the world.
They can't figure us out why bother...Read More

but immutable.
Unmoving, unmoveable;
timeless, yet tireless.
Solitary stalwart sentinel
surveils undulating horizon.

Aberrant, achromatic clouds
pock-mark the skies, as distant
rumblings herald his adversary's
latest gambit in their age-old conflict.

The wrath of a thousand crashing,
clashing, thrashing fists batter
against the beleaguered sentry.
Ceaselessly, remorselessly,
the maelstrom assails him.

But the foundations...Read More

Premium Member The Perils Of love
Emptying your heart of sad emotions
shelters you from experiencing norms.
And hiding behind your protective walls
you felt you were impervious to storms.

Yet betrayal cuts with a rusty edge 
dulling your appetite to chase rainbows.
And you trade a kaleidoscope of hopes
for depression’s...Read More

The horsemen have arrived on their menacing mares,
Whose stiletto hoofed horseshoes click-clack on which
Achromatic static; silent staccatos inside of ultraviolet light.

As vidalian dampened eyes drip with verid veneers before the mounted steeds,
Embrocations of nuclear infernos' fumes simmer in cimmerian shades:

As time and space dimensions jelly-fish…
Quiet falls the cement-turf of lock-box seas;
Milky Way kisses answer my wish -
She nestles ‘neath an orchard cloak of apple trees:


Gray!  Everything is gray!  Gray is the sun!
But there she is…Providential Happenstance;

Premium Member Achromatic Pentameter
Have you not looked upon horizons pink,
Outstretched from dreary skies of yesternight,
That vanquish tearful blue as cottons blink
And gray reflects the glow of lunar light?
Are stargazed lilies grown for one alone -
A selfish king who chains the royal moon?
Defiant highness...Read More

my parents
taught me to walk and they made me crawl

Home Of The Brave
An achromatic statue of a Union bugler
soldier stands high above
a tiny municipal park
where class Aves defecate daily
on his stone-cold cap and shoulders.
Monday and many more Memorial Days
We will dignify this warrior
And others like him lost in battle.
Honoring them with flowers,

Death of a Brother
Written: by Tom Wright
March 2015

His sun slipped below the horizon,
Leaving naught but an achromatic sky,

As thoughts submerged in time before, 
Once abeyant, now dance;

The voice of one since passed,
Drums my ears like Sage Hens at sunset;

While I...Read More
