"Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews."
By: Miracle man

Up Golgotha’s hill Jesus carried a cross,
to take upon himself all of mankind’s dross.
Thereby to be hung between two convicted thieves, 
each Easter we hear the story His death leaves.

The Porter's terms
The Porter’s terms
Are highly irregular today
It’s Theo Chocolate nibs
Playing the stark domme fuhrer role
Submitting this docile subject
Into crazed tyranny
Only appreciated by the gullet
Impatiently waiting for its helping
Scores of thieves
Affixed in parallel thoughts
And steely fortitude
Look to match the ABV
Doled out like...Read More

My Thoughts on Friendship
Written: by Miracle Man

They are not always friends
who come to you with outstretched hands,
and being friendly doesn't constitute friendship.

But I can be a friend to you
without your being a friend to me.
Our demeanor often keeps friendship from...Read More

The Harvest Is Plenteous*
Written: by Miracle Man

In chasing filthy lucre, notoriety, or fame,
We allow these to take us out of God’s game.
We accumulate earthly goods, all timely spaced,
And in this pursuit, allow God, to be displaced.

But nothing in life comes...Read More

Wake to frequent reality I lack pride and joy
Alternately titled inferiority

oft times ponder what
afterlife like beyond far horizon ahoy...

hermetically sealed croft,
imagining small rented farm,

My Wake
Sails upon my planet

Across the depths of time and space
Barely do I leave a trace

Maybe I can see myself written in

Maybe my story can be on the very pages

Hold still my courage tightly grasped.
Guard it against my building weakness.
Surely my hedge stone of strength falls fast.
For with gaping mouth_ my soul's aghast.

The vivacious heroine I currently be.

With mounting weariness my nerves...Read More

The letter had come in the morning mail,

there were sudden tears falling from my eyes;
his signature written-   so very frail.

Mixing Words
Well you’re mixing words
That have no business
In Working together
But I’d be remiss if this
Was the first time
We’ve been through 
That gaping wound

Mouth, sword 
Insult, slash
This is the process 
Of destruction
A carving of will 
Measured in blood
And burials in the meadows

My Opinion

Politicians promise anything to get, or stay, elected,
Socialism won’t save the world and should be rejected.
They endeavor to convince others that their role is in sync,
Armed with opinions, and like armpits, most stink.

I wonder how many promises we might...Read More

A plethora of expletives the couple exchanged

Arduous agonizing affliction

In the Darkened Foyer

There you are again.

Eyeing the sunken-eyed dancer who forgets she’s not alive;
She’s just passing by all the sickness of dissipated humanity, 
Wrapped in a single walk, and a solitary stretcher,
