Beware the Mocking Jay
~ Monotetra form ~

No man's eyes will ever conceive
the things another mind may weave
If this counsel you don't believe
You are naïve    You are naïve

What lies behind a masked facade
is oft' unfit to praise and laud
Tread lightly when...Read More

Premium Member The Boy Beyond


Precocious boy, yon ere the age of twelve,
Parades vast knowledge, complexity swelled,
Our simplistic share was well understood,
Kept back of minds, preserves naive childhood.

Green imparts years cherished adolescence,
Bottled, we heed, coupled coalescence,
Errant appendages spark normal steps,
Blessed gifted faculties, fellow class frets....Read More

Overdraft finds me chill and off balance
Penuriousness long did acquaint
yours truly, who feels loath
to lodge complaint
regarding series of unfortunate events
(Lemony Snicket be damned)
imposed monetary constraint,

now aghast with horror
(ain't no trick),
I unwittingly did faint,
only negative indebted interest accrues,
now if ever mister money bags I haint,
no gainsay purposelessness

You never heard him holler

The first step of walk
My legs wobbled,
Fell time and again;
With several attempts,
And rose again;
Then moved one leg
Ahead to walk;
Though was scary,
Fearing would fall,
Hurt my knees;
Never realized 
That first Move,
Was decisive for 
Long journey of my life;
Moved on the journey 
Through its road; 
Though was...Read More

The Heart of the Man
The man, Van Gogh, seized passion with his heart.
With ordinary folks he did acquaint. 
Obsessed with failed success he lived apart.
When disappointment raged without constraint,
He left great art behind at death’s depart.

Past, Present and Future
Lost and lonely, she wandered abroad,
Looking at things she couldn't afford.
Feeling so lonely as folk passed her by,
Lost in her thoughts of wondering why.
Remembering back when friends were around,
Now ever so lonely, even when in a crowd.
She wonders if friends...Read More

Own yourself
Own yourself!
Nagging on someone 
isn't going to cut you a shining star.
Reminiscing on your past will only 
give you the worst of unsweetened-soured 
memories of your life time.

Let it go
Take a step to finding you again.
What was done was gone...Read More

Five words

Angels
Lenient light beings
Persistently beside one
Aware and secure

Acquaint themselves once
Nevermore in physical
But still their warmth counts

Coeval as I am
Complexities become plain
Chosen among few

Descend with desire
Defy death a countless times
Illumine spirit

Linger up below
Feeling within and beyond
Omnipresent glow

Shadow Dance---I'Lyezette

I feel the dawn preparing her day
With little, hushed peaceful gestures

Then upon opening my eyes, I greet her crimson smile
Slowly peering over the horizon, whilst over I turn
And say good morn to the stars out...Read More
