Premium Member Silence cries for my Untouched Lover
Death's malodor dances 
with winds of lament

heart wonders, mind ponders

watching sunset lose her grace,
time has become an adversary,

pulsating in our misfortune,
orchestrating a tragedy of love

heart wonders, mind ponders

in the hope of tomorrow,
silence cries for my untouched lover.

Cold creeps
from swift whirlwinds
left me quivering with chattered teeth
and drenching with sweat.
foreshadow of war. 

There I was
aghast on the battlefield
accoutered with no armor or shield
and no cavalrymen to deploy;
ashen with fear.

Venomous arrowheads
seared me with scars
as a sword ravaged my heart.
I...Read More

The Interlude of Aphradere: Remember Me Always

She leads me beside quiet streams of jubilation
Desolation is nowhere to be seen anymore, for she's a keeper of the radiant rivermill

The face of grace looked upon the world.
twas not perfect till he made a replica of his being.
and called him man.
came then an offender who caused his creation to sin. 
His deceit and true intent unbeknown to the woman.

Aliens on Earth

And so the darkest age had fallen
they knew not the friendly from the enemy
but each and everyone one of them
had become the foe

In dim lit rooms they tally their coin of economy
and gave complaint to the price of life

Life’s Upheavals
Written: By Miracle Man

I’ve had both Cancer,
and Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
And after having them both,
I can readily attest.

My two worst crises,
in life they’ve been.
 Cancer yanked me,
from a life of sin.

S.C.A. was likewise,
a redoubtable adversary.
Leaving things in life,
much less arbitrary.

Premium Member MENACING--
Much I marvelled the infecting threat;
And its eyes have all the prospecting;
While I pondered, minatory and heavyset;
The hazards came respecting;
I crave the bombastic, beastly belligerent;
And the potential never digging;
And the potentiates never adhering;
The harmonious ultimatum upholding indigents;
The prospects came clearing;
It...Read More

Might Marry My Adversary
Might Marry My Adversary

Suppose a certain person I should marry,
Who had turned out being my adversary,
After we proposed,
Each other opposed,
And the two of us were different and very.

Didn't realize that a husband marries a

Never part in fierce anger, my friend.
Life is so short, let love be your end.
Anger is just a cluster of cold thunderstorms,
Let love be a show from various platforms.
For anger like storms are dark, black and sinister,
Rather pour down soothing...Read More

Cut Bigger Slice Horn Haiku and More
knew what will suffice
then encourage and entice
to cut biggest slice

Instead of Trump cutting
us out of everything, we
should have Christ cut
him out of everything.

Trump everything he seems to know,
For his Bible has been telling him so;
Thinks is strong,
Always wrong;

Premium Member I died a little inside
In the silence of sadness,
what will the winds bring tomorrow?
In the sadness of silence,
my soul sighs soft breaths of sorrow.

Where did those rainbows go,
reminiscing happier times?
Thunder brings further misery -
am I victim of my own crimes?

I must have betrayed the...Read More

What Heaven Sent
I've walked at a peculiar

As I've laughed at peculiar

I've aged in the most peculiar
of vacuums

And went on to love in the most
normal of ways

I've worked in a spirit
of defiance 

As I've traveled the many miles
from compliance

I've lived within the confines

Pity,something you can give a lot,
but can never be proud of.
pty aint worth a penny.

Halloween night
Throw me to the wolfs

Some lead it from the front 
But I will lead it from the back

Hear my ghostly howl
