Premium Member Discussions in my head
I have discussions in my head
With family, friends not here but dead.
Coworkers or acquaintances
Who said they were but weren't instead.

Not dead and buried, not burned to ash.
It's just that part of life has passed;
Of evening talks through nights that last
Till...Read More

Premium Member What if Christmas
What if...
Suppose for a moment
there were no presents to open
no tree to place them under
no lights or ornaments to hang;
suppose you made a sumptuous dinner
and no one came
not a card, not a phone call,
no e-mail or greeting on your facebook...Read More

The Winter Season
The winter has come to NYC
The workers are working 
Businessmen are making their final phone calls of the day
I bought a lottery ticket
But, alas, I did not win
Well, I see that NYC is running like clockwork
Buses and subways on time

The Bonds of Christmas
It’s that special time of year
Winter settles in when the first snowflake
Comes drifting into the air with buddies in tow
Signalling a winter wonderland.

Streets are decked out in Christmas lights
That diminish the darkness with their twinkling glow
Trees are turned into artistic...Read More

Greetings from Afar
At holiday time, I oftentimes hear
From some I don’t speak to the rest of the year.
In fact, for a few, it’s a decade or more
Since we’ve seen one another, despite our rapport.

For distance and time and life’s twists and its...Read More

morning thoughts
From: Tom
11-23-2019 

When someone, who is a friend, pilfers from me,
money or possessions, they cease being classified as a friend.

I can still be cordial toward them but they become acquaintances,
and their opportunity for forward repeats become limited.

Premium Member Comatose
In an irrevocable warp speed instant, 
my head collided into the likeness of drying tar, 
absorbing each horrid layer of concrete. 
That pitch-black, tacky substance covered my body, 
so that I was trapped, sightless, into immobility. 

With pounding pain, like...Read More

Premium Member Just A Game
Life
 it's just a game we play
those children we once were
 seeking the answers to
what life was all about.

A friendship here and there
 some mere acquaintances
others lifelong endurances
 standing by our side forever
overcoming trying experiences.

Here we are
 a lifetime gone...Read More

Premium Member Humility IS the Brightest Love
Love, I get love is more than a game the young play,
It is life one commits, not caged bird ‘shopped’ to mine
In the hope lives are saved that don’t sleep in harm’s way!
How can chemistry alter what man can’t refine?

Friends come, friends go: This Earth is so
Some I make, Death must take -- I know
Acquaintances are many, but
Perhaps the most unkindest cut
Is one that happened long ago

Until he went and made me...Read More

I love You
It’s said so frequently; so easily, its meaning gets totally depleted;
 So romantic, but without correct action; its purpose is defeated.
I love you, so passionately sweet, so movingly breath-taking from you;
Appropriately and complementary actions makes its’ meaning so true.

A Letter to an Old Reality
Dear the me from four years ago, 

Don't have a cow when I say this, 
but I'm a fortune teller. Sort of. 
For you, anyway.

I am blatantly aware of what is in store
for you because I have lived through it.

Judgment Is Coming
By: Tom Wright
12-2-04

Life is like a book,
with a beginning, plots and subplots, 
climax, and end.
Pretty non eventful at the start,
mostly just laying around
 whining about one thing or another.
(some remain in this mode)
But as we get into it,

I love her, I do

Premium Member Seventeen Funeral Cards In His Pocket
Seventeen funeral cards in his breast coat suit pocket
Waiting to be discovered, after his death.
Filling it up, folded neatly, in a row, 
We could have remarked on it.
No one did.

Knowing most.
But not all.
They got tossed.

Premium Member Mr Philanderer
All acquaintances or communication is a trap
private communion of naked bodies and then it’s a wrap.

Lies are systematically coined to always have a buyer
the trade is rigorous with much strain, yet won’t retire.

His craft, bullies loyalty to break or bend

Eyes replacing lips, saying words more than that of a rapper
Mouth closes itself, only to open and speak when proper
Emits that sense of certainty that he will surely prosper

Stolen Kisses
Public places
Eye contact
Very few words
Plenty of tact
‘Nodding acquaintances,
No more’
Nothing revealed
Nothing to pour
Expressions blank
Heart full of emotions
Taking refuge
‘Where’?
In pretensions
Lots of 
Meaningless joviality
Easy atmosphere
‘Ill at ease’ inside 
Apparent formalities
‘Thank yous’ and ‘Please’
And then.....
By chance
Those hurried moments
Chance to make amends
Away from the crowd
Silence...Read More

God's miracles appear when you least expect them,
Then you are always thankful.

When i retired I had years of miracles,
I wrote two books, "Living with God" and the "Sounds of Christmas".

Chosen for the William...Read More
