Blunderful
Blunderful
The man was addicted to sex
Lust drove him to do his actions
Each one more intense than the last
Like water incessantly flowing
Washing against the dam wall
Till a hairline crack appeared
This rapidly became a valley
And the dam was breached
Forever broken and ruined

A less trodden path
This world you cannot hold
Like dirt inside your hand
Sooner or later it's gone
You can get addicted with what's in it
Then sent to rehab to get rid of the addiction
It's like trying to grasp a relationship that wouldn't last
You don't always...Read More

Venomous coffee addicted to the plague
Addicted to the feeling that i cannot be saved
Seeping in my windows like summer lemonade
Sunlight haunting me like a demons serenade

The endless sights are passing by me so slowly
Leaves are growing as we all die...Read More

Nowadays
Nowadays, people are afraid
to be alone with self (one’s 
own thoughts)—addicted to the static
of distraction, gadgets for ears
and mantras for the mind…

as though an inherent,
Righteous-core were the enemy: 
we shut out voices of conscience
and Divine Guide—echos
of past lives while roadside...Read More

From Those Fields Afar, Where Imagination Shines

From dreams of great giants slain he woke
a poet with mighty pen spoke
some days ink running wicked black
others days on romantic track,
words slung as Byron, Shelly, Keats
with not a whisper of defeats

We Put The Wrong Son Up For Adoption
My son is a thief and a drug user.
I'm not lying when I say he's a loser.
It's too much for my wife and I to bear.
He's addicted to Meth and he's on welfare.
When my wife had twins, we chose the...Read More

Innocence confronts a world that’s corrupt
addicted to sin
and thrill of the win,
where suppressed emotions spew and erupt.
Although naught is said
innocence gets shed.
And as children prepare for reality
trading fantasy dreams for hyperbole,
time chases its shadow.

But adolescence’s adrenaline rush
sets you free at...Read More

Premium Member Childs Champion
So many children, so much loss.
Many tears shed, from many a different cause.
Maybe Mom died of cancer, or a dad with no answer.
A drug deal gone wrong, broken homes and broken bones.

Forgotten and neglected, maybe caused by a bottle.
It could...Read More

IRENE QUEEN OF CATS
IRENE ^~^ zzzzzzz...

Now my friend has a pussy called Irene
She is regal

She is known as the Queen
Each day she eats salmon from a golden tureen
But one day last spring
A fat rat wandered in
Falling asleep on her golden tureen

I’m the girl who sits in the bar; 
Drunk on the music 
never touching the alcohol; 

The quiet one in the shadows 
who knows all the words, 
In and out like a banshee 
but back for every show;

The one whose...Read More

Inner vocal Quiver
?As if a child should understand an  adult’s muddle,
putrid oil slick puddle,
the dreadful pain we foist on wide-eyed offspring.
Robotic elders crush with rigid slabs of Portland censure whatever spark remains in t iny rosebud coloured cheeks before their prime.

I am addicted
Addicted to word games

Who are also addicted
To word games

Playing Dabble
Her favorite word game
She had to beat the clock
And makes seven words
Out of thirty-two letters

Have the wherewithal to walk away.!

Fictitious Times

A tiny world inside a tiny bubble
filled with danger and deceit
full of the world that they create
secret whispers in their shadows
within their darkness and their hate
in the world that they create

Slippery hands exchange the things that they defile
abnegation in the...Read More

Don't give up
on precise strategic resilience
and passionate communitarians
winning here and winning now,
now already won here
with and for those with 20/20 sight

thought with feeling,

Do give up blaming
only your own internal addicted climate
without also shaming your medicine-pushing society
of left-hemisphere verbal violent domination.

Addicted to Hypocrisy
Heroin lies the irony — 
Segregated babies are weaned on
milk-of-the-poppy
doctrine of Equality

Emancipated notion on the nod:
A false sense of freedom
is taught in every syringe-scattered schoolyard

Children of the cold, concrete jungle  cry hard ...
opiate tears of injected fentanyl medium

My neighbour’s addicted to Twitter
He’ll tweet when he’s doing a ‘sitter’
When he squats for a dump
He tweets more than Don Trump
No wonder his wife feels so bitter
