New Poems

Lack of sight and of light, once a shining radiant light.
It yields every hight color, everything forthwith has a gradient.
Affright, no sight, no lack of sound. Asunder, not lost nor truly ever found.

Emotional attachment or detachment

Do you realize your thought about
emotional attachment, it means
you love her so much, that you block out
your independent feeling, it seems
in tune with her feeling, can't opt out
to pursue your ideas, own dreams.

Shows you've decided to fully share
her joy, enjoy...Read More

We are the children of time 
That big round clock 
Arms like arrows 
Not a minute to be wasted 
In this precious cycle 
Of ambition 
We succeed 
While hearts bleed
Yet we go on and on. 
Growing up isn't tough

Satan had a daughter, her name was Indiana
Came a time Satan could not understand her

What my young lass what does ails with thee
That none of your pains come in less of three

You moan in the morning,...Read More

Premium Member Fighting The Demon
Demon fright
in darkest night
bright heaven's light
life seems so finite,
so trite.

Thus, affright,
we fight,
as we write
our delight
in nightmared midnight
to unveil our twilight 
and, once more, see right.

The Answer to Complaint Part 3

Lavish Praise Not Sought
Painful self actualization
quickly brights to light
paltry reasons (with or
without rhyme) a desolate sight
within blinkered mindseye hindsight

grotesque grimace shocks with affright
desolate landscape 
precipitated when airtight
vacuum sealed sequestered,
muckraked, furloughed...

which past existence now doth bite
back with a vengeance more agonizing
than any imaginable plight

Upon Espying Aesthetically Pleasing Females
I admit tubby distracted by a modeling

Premium Member My Thoughts on Aging
Just yesterday morning while shaving my face,
I looked in the mirror in total dismay;
my once youthful looks somehow time did erase,
and there stood a stranger with age on display.

My once raven hair has now turned a dull white,

A hopeless optimist
My hope was my delight boundless,
Unfettered, unbridled!
It unfolded a conformity in my life
Albeit many stumbles and 
Discords of life I survived, 

Life’s evil breaths had scalded my redolent hope,
My silent words were hardly heard, 
Hardly understood!
From life to life I...Read More

One Brief Moment
Look...See how long nights are drawing in.
Dreary birdsong gradually abates -
Opaque dusk grows dim;
And just outside the creaky little garden
Stood opposite the empty wood
Where the vacant threshold silently awaits,
I pause, when, resonating quietly back...
I now hear...
Far distant echoes of my...Read More

The Lights ft Edgar Allan Poe

See the phone towers with the lights-

How they twinkle, twinkle, twinkle
In the icy air of night! 
While the clouds that are gray
And so boring, seem to...Read More

Who Am I Now
Who in the heck am I now?

I used to know
Not so long ago
But who the heck 
am I now?

The days have changed me
Rearranged me
I barely know 
myself now

I still look the same (mostly)
But I’m not… (except in name)

Lay it out dissected star,
Thy beauty marred seen from afar,
That science has what's done to thee,
Destroyed that flight, orb's fantasy.
Where the mountains of the moon rise surging
Up from shallow seas aspiring,
And the circle of unending light
Has left us in the...Read More
