Shadowless sundown
Beating down the pyre
Intake from the boys around
Persistence to admire

Genesis of honest thoughts
Fear melts me to the wire
Apocalypse, the greedy bought
We dance around the fire

Weeping Prophets sing the news
While sunshine slowly loses time
The days will melt into a noose

Delirious Daze
Delirious was the daze between
the ones I loved the years I’ve seen
frogs toads and a wedding queen
delirious was daze the between. 

Delicious were the fruits of youth
in pursuit of youthful truth
mysteries, a clueless sleuth 
delicious were the fruits of youth.

Desolation visits as
I'm gradually burning
what is left in my head.

It's like a temblor underneath.
Inevitable and perilous...
I might end up
hurting myself.

Disturbed emotions
kicking around like
big waves from the ocean
-I might be eaten alive.

Like a storm rages
destroying me
piece by piece.
All in one moment

Clown at the Abyss
It was so dark for the clown at the abyss,
Searching his soul for remnant of bliss,
Deeply wounded though carried out lies.
Then came those longing looks in his eyes,

Which vapoured right where he cried.
Covering his naughty facade with pride,
In the aftermath...Read More

Sowing a seed to make me bleed

Fear is a laden earthen farmer
Dirty is the solemn stain path
Filthy plummet plans of wrath
You break in me a spirit charmer
Sowing seeds of destructive aftermath
Winds of fear slowing ongoing

In only a moment of maritime mirth
My ship's maiden voyage was missing at birth
The King's Royal Navy reduced me in rank
By flushing my ship in the place where it sank

I fell in the sea with no source of a boat

Dawn, Angie, Glori and Dale —

No Getting Back to Normal, a 9-11 Poem
by Michael R. Burch

of milk to cloud the blackness that you feel;
add artificial sweeteners to conceal
the bitter aftertaste of loss. You’ll heal

Words of wisdom
Patience is a virtue
Hope is only advice
Yet the words are powerful
But power can be deceitful,
Cold, hungry and greedy.

How can one have happience?
When they continuously miss what stands in front,
When they try to please the unpleasable?
Then crumble when they fail?

Premium Member A Fugitive She Never Knew
As still as night, her heart aghast,
she pondered of her fellow's fairing,
for word had spread of his capture.
She dreamt of blooming meadows past,
as butterfly spies enrapture
lunch baskets and laughter sharing.
Alas, now shadows are glaring.
A fugitive, she never knew,
throughout each lovely...Read More

Which by electronic means I NAVIGATE,
Since, like so many others, I PATRONISE

A deed historically immense,

Little Bo Peep the aftermath
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
they didn't return home at the beep,
making Little Bo Peep cry and weep.

always loved to go when they creep.

Make love to me with

Put your back into it.

Draw me into your world

To your glib poetic tongue.

Premium Member For here we die

Rejoice, unknown of waking fall
Apart this longish bramble path
For lest we stand ‘bove lowered feel
And lone of echo’s loudest call
Of whisperings we shan’t conceal
Despised this threatened aftermath
Now formed of cost and promised wrath
If only but to heed the charge

Premium Member A Deafening Sense of Thunder

A thunderstorm passed over, 
gun turrets flash.
gray hulls rumble and roll
above tumultuous clouds.

Evening commences to weep -
an aftermath,
a damp emotive capsizing
that barely touches upturned faces
yet it washes fright from brows.

As seafaring battles go
it was a skirmish, 
flotillas of cruisers awash...Read More
