He told her he was broken
But she saw him differently
A priceless clock
That was slightly off 
A little complicated
Just needed timing, winding, 
Some small adjustment
She thought she could 
Do the necessary repairs, 
It should’ve been a cinch
It would’ve been worth it
But he turned out to...Read More

Premium Member Purple Unicorn Rainbow Ideas
Purple unicorn rainbow ideas floated past.
In the form of a luna moth, pretty and light.
But I thought all luna moths were green, I thought.

I smiled, turning them into silver glitzy snowflake mountains.

Oblivious transit to astral sphere
Transcendent meditative
ascendance assuaged
deep sleep grogginess resultant
resounding residual REM cycles
profound dreams decreasingly faint grip
fading fast, yet...

courtesy toehold subconscious sojourn
oft times mentally exhausting,
nonetheless requisite sleep
house strikingly  vivid dreams
salutary, revelatory truthfully...

Of melodies pure & true

Unconditional Paternal Love Toward Shana Punim
Screaming writhing violent
uncontrollable spasms of abandonment

Again, this place, again
Nothing new under the sun
What I'm experiencing anew
Has already been done

Back in '92, I almost gave up
But I pressed into the pain
I faced my past with courage
And used my loss for gain

I've stopped dreaming of magic

holed up deep underground

Attitude adjustment is needed now
We should try to watch our language
It's causing a lot of anguish
Eyes filled up with saddened tears
When others no longer care
About feelings they are using
As they like how the abusing 
Hateful words are causing pain
Driving others so insane
How can this...Read More

I’m in love with the silence. 
The thick layers appear 
They display as opaque

All spaces it spreads to
Filling up the room 
Also In its...Read More

Age and Attitude Adjustment
From age one to three
Your life's barely  startin',
But it kicks into gear
When you clear kindergarten.

Then on to primary, grade school,
And each stage in between,
'til you make it to twelve,
And then finally thirteen.

You've had sex once, you shave,
You think life...Read More
