Breath it in
Breath it in; do you feel it?
The surge of energy, flowing beneath.

Barred from stress; darkness consumed.
Heat intensified from the beat of your chest. 

All the power, all the rage,
Walls beside you; crumbling, tumbling down.

Stand tall; watch it fall.

The pain, the...Read More

Snakes of all shapes

Snakes lie and wait in the grass,

Along the floor or high in the tree they creep but the bite lasts,

In similar kind the blood of violent dynasty's
remains distinct without conscience 
its empire of centuries
branded hot upon the slave born sweat 
and to dictatorship

for in the bestial mouth
ever shall the vampire feed

A new age, a new start, a new hope to palate.

Premium Member Wearing Chiffon

Stuck on this love theme, what's going on
Something I ate, or maybe wearing chiffon
No, that can't be it
A real man must acquit
Just a phase, perhaps a disease from a swan???

Athwart Without Surcease
Athwart Without Surcease — Edzel

Erelong the sphere was contrived,
intrinsically safe with His arms.
Born— soon derived,
and molded from His heart so warm.

Fain to live,
hight to be a no man in an island.
Sith ere He do forgive,
our sins be reprimand.

Teened with so...Read More

Vile Betrayal
Eternal scream, into the black
I thought you'd left, But now your back
Vile Betrayal, old, old friend
Will your torment Never end?

Past scars ripped fresh and bleed again
First you give, then take away
You just spend, I always...Read More

“Rabii! Rabii! Rabii!
What suppose you of this woman?
Caught in the act of sin

She must be thrashed to the non-living
So demands the laws of the land

I Pleaded the Fifth
There's a story from Dixon
About some ole drunk
Who came in the courtroom
Drunk as a skunk

When asked by the judge
Sir how do you plea
He pulled out a 5th 
And said this ones on me

Unsure what he meant

A Little Kitten in the Garden II
It was absurd to think that an engineer, with an earned degree,
Would be caught in a quandary, like a cat up a tree.

Are you the Victim of a Word Place Accident..?

Sound Argument
Snick-woosh, rushing stream
Clink, gurgle, doppler shift
Glub then tinkle, drip drip
Crystal scrape metallic
A plastic click, pause, muffled hiss
Gurgle, snort, chuckle, snuff
Plink… Plink plink… Drizzle, drip, drizzle, drop
Coffee is brewing

Dry rustle, crinkle, pages on wood
Chock, thwock, slap, a paper stack
A throaty zip,...Read More

The sun to this son
It has been 40 days, now, since my mom’s passing to the afterlife

Coloring the greater portion of a life.
Who would vouch such secrets to the cordial ear?
Such divulge is fear itself.

Love is a mysterious thing
Even if you found that perfect ring,

Lost battle
He was there recumbent like a log
Cancer has culminated,prevailing over him
Enfeebled all his shielding apparatuses
Yet spurned to frolic prolongation

Eschewed palliative care ministrations
He detected the vital prognosis was engaged
He had instead to plough money into God's certitude
For he realized HE implements...Read More

The Edges Of Time
Sleep evades his presence missed
Her lonely reflection shines back
By windows glass her wine she sips
But liquid comfort cannot acquit

The sentence of her choosing
Where lonesome miles consist
A blind eyes scentless bouquet 
An agony she couldn't predict

Now morning breaks
A ridged winters chill
