Pencraft
I'll write of things lamentable like poor shipwrecked loves,
Tempest-tossed by bestial winds behind unfeeling storms;
Ripped apart by the furious middles of swift-gusting winds,
Voyaging to dream-born shores away from boring homes. 

I'll tell of the Fate-shattered dreams of earth's surest bet.

Neither half of any equation - -
Offerings all-inclusively controlled,

  consummating thirst's affectations

   eliciting truth's darkly responsive swallow

        of pretenses pseudo-poetic poison,

Flames of Sorrow
Oh how I saw a dreadful thing today!
You wretched thing, your grievous wretched act,
How dare you leave me for this piece of clay!
Unkindly you have broke our solemn pact
To never leave each other in our hold
Of affectations held by bonding...Read More

You're Not All That
So I’m not looking good, you say 
From where you are sat
Well, let me tell you, sonny Jim
You’re not all that
I haven’t quite lived up to your
Lofty aspirations
A bit too old, a bit too poor
Too many affectations
Incapable, impoverished
And just a...Read More

Marriage..husband..wife..
nouveau Humpty Dumpty words..
designer labels for the Emperor's

A pernicious perversion of
vocabulary..abberrations to
the norm that parade as
affectations  in disguise.

Pondering on Perfection
Perfection
Comes encased 
In an illusion
Hiding the decays
And the facets
Of imperfection.

Like a mirror
With two faces
The good glitters
And the bad
Lurks and reflects
In dark recesses.

A banal farce
Of human nature
The affectations
Used to bolster
The image
For the greater.

To Intercede The Importunate
Having fissioned the mind 
To intercede the importunate
And petitioned wisdom inside 
Idle and dissipated 
As tremendous illusions 
pervades the soul
The unsurpassed revolt of 
capitulated distortions 
A percussion of thoughts
That solicits affectations of such

THE STRANGER MAN 2
THE STRANGER MAN (2)

They who posses tire
out and loose more
in keeping.
As homeowner never
have I felt at home
But closer home as
squatter and
settler.
The crop man crops
his way through
life,
The dry cleaner
cannot subdue the
muck;
The well heeled
can’t afford inner
balm with yen.
I need no fortune or
fame...Read More

Premium Member Goldie
Goldie, my peculiar but beloved cat,
has certain affectations --
she prefers, most times, her own society
and shuns her housemates.
But, sometimes, she cuddles
or will join the others
to laze around -- in the living room,
the dining room, a hallway, or
in the kitchen.
An inside...Read More

He's Imperfect, But That's Perfect
Our Love Wasn't A Mistake
It Wasn't Adventitious
Our Love Was Meant To Be
Though It Does Seem Fictitious

I Love You For Many Reasons
One's That You're Sincere
You Have No Affectations
That's Why I'm Still Here

Premium Member OUR HEDONISTIC LAD
Glad,hedonistic lad;
Delighting in delectations,
Amusing affectations,
Posturing pretension
with ogling ostentation!

Professing pleasure seeking
Confessing,leisure leaning.
Reputation so revealing,
Passe peer appealing!

Performing,extroverting,
Showcasing,demonstrating,
Superficial and artificial;
Pleasure without measure.

Sad,sad,sad ! Hedonistic lad!...Read More

Reflection
Do you like me for my form
And my cosmetic moments
With their conceits and affectations,
Bejewelled with glittering gewgaws,
Hinting at the scents of summer,
All show but no substance,
Holding back the acrid stench of death?
For you ,my beauty is but word deep.

Perhaps you...Read More
