Premium Member MALADIES
I don't even think about my Arthritis,
Since it was eclipsed by the pain of Bursitis;
And even that barely rates a mention,
Since my neuralgia over rides it's retention.

My fallen arches I barely notice,
Since the varicose veins in my legs diagnoses,

Premium Member To sin be quite shut up and listen
Unpopular is the truth to speak
it ain't vogue to be correct in manners
when tantrums have only one side in an invalid opinion
Let us cross the iced wasteland suffering fools
where frozen subjects refuse to obey natural law
certain agendas have a one...Read More

Something in the air
Something in my mind
Where am I
Testing trials and tribulation
Descending from atmosphere
Something in the air apparent 
Coming down from heaven
To relieve us..

The morning sun is just peeping out
with its orange and yellowish color
Stirring lazy bodies out of bed 
pointing to...Read More

A Sad State of the Union
This country's in a mess today,
And things are getting worse not better.
Our leadership has lost its grip
And has given common sense the slip,
When the White House has as resident
An egocentric president
Who makes his lack of judgement evident
By spending too little...Read More

Always a sight for me to behold.

Premium Member Called a Sin
Don’t ask the gods if they sent
sedatives to cure the pain
those aches of body’s frame
or the trials of mind’s domain

not prescribed but still pursued
by the drink or much more
addressing woes all deplore

removing more than agony
when composure is...Read More

Dangerous Mind
The mind is a most dangerous thing,
Forcing memories into replay,
Endless relived moments drowning bring
Snippets in time more real than today. 
Paralyzing sadness is trouble
Which the mind needs to be addressing. 

Before I died inside, I really tried.

The sleepless mind toys...Read More

The Way I'm Not Clean For Soup 8 of 11
Back when you had authority
fact is you behaved horribly
I was your only priority
actions stressed unsightly 
lashing out as you'd fight me
infatuated obsessively
forcing oppressively 
harp so all think less of me
smackdown unimpressively
as you fail when addressing me
acting predictably 
thinking sickly

Hunger Pangs
America unlocked
Is the monster
under stairs
The bottom class
as upper class
called them higher.
Master like playing games
 stoking darkened fears
enjoyed teasing
Kept them
second guessing

The sharp fangs
of illiteracy overtly ruling
Liked them tamed
and their feet grabbers
Had to be there quick
