When My Demons Come Out To Play
Do you want to see behind my eyes
I very much doubt that you do
It can be a place of great beauty
But wait around a minute or two and the sky will turn black
My demons come out to play and if...Read More

Premium Member I am Rhymthically Sound
I have arrived gradually, in boxes.
from foreign places, unknown sellers.
part of me was procured from a man
who told his son to come get me or else five years ago

I am stealthily planning my take-over of this household.
slowly crowding the people...Read More

Premium Member Never Argue With A Child
never get into an argument with a child.
never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever
because they always win.

they have nothing to lose,
and you do.
you lose your dignity,
your composure,
your everything

a child never backs down,
they do not know how, 
and once they...Read More

Sex of my preferred child
If I was ever to be blessed 
With the gift of an only child
And I was given the option 
To choose the sex also too
I would choose to have a baby girl

I know a Father is supposed to want a...Read More

Premium Member In view of the mirror
Muted solitary moments run for days,
as the air of discontent begins to scoff
we vent in a wordless empty praise
pretending, telling the truth to back off;
in view of the mirror all bets are off.

muse bait
muse bait bent hook
lapping tongues water bowls grief
hug me tighter noose
why leaves questioning
who never knew who to ask
what went the wrong way lost
where is still asking how 7 ate 9
when left blood marks on her panties
how ranting
panting panthers
oh all love...Read More

No bets
 Here in my quiet corner
Jesus culture seeps out of the phone at my left
The day isn’t young
The late pink of December’s evening gently informs me that evening is here

I think and rage,
I read and boil
How dare they?
I have known...Read More

Be it as it may I'll try my hand at some clichés
    and address the elephant in the room soon when pigs fly.
It’s a win- win situation, put your game face on, work the crowd

Bales and Bushels
It's our social spectrum,
Polar opposites,
A moral conundrum,
Named Charlotte,
Our eyes locked across the sea,
Sealed behind iron eyelids,
An investor's security,
The upstarts outbid,
All bets are off,
The crack of our whips,
A duelist's standoff,
Agony on your lips,
Pushed into an animalistic frenzy,
My fists won the day...Read More

miss behaved like miss
thus proving all bets are off

there will be catnip handy

loyalty
without 
it
love cannot stand, 
friendship holds no ground,
the world is full of liars,
everyone is an enemy,
violence will win out,
strength is an irrelevant concept &
all bets are off.

Give Back From the Heart
All bets are off
So tired of playing foolish games
You think you've won but
Then it always ends the same
At first you're on top
You know you've evened up the score
Then lose it all
You've nothing left, there is no more

the british empire couldn’t do it

now the great big policeman of the world

and suddenly all bets are off---
wondering how it all summed up itself in such a way
as if the body would last forever, as if this thing that exists
to cart your sorry ass around 
would stand tall & unique amidst the...Read More

Gazing to Water
Beneath the scratches
spanning this page,
random thoughts
have been paved


I have no substance
in the world at large,
but this beat of life
regroups to charge


From battle songs
to old lang syne,
until death does turn
the page of time


The industrial world
means nothing to me,
its the ones who...Read More

Circle the Wagons
Circle the wagons,
We must protect our love,
Arrows and spears
Let them fly above
No one will take me away
No one will make my last day

I have too much to lose
Since loving you
I'll fight against all odds
And do what I must do

Shoot your...Read More

A Tribute To Snatch
A caravan for a Turkish
not a tommy gun
you took the jam out of my doughnut
periwinkle blue
a desert eagle is not a replica nor a diamond
sweet enough without the sugar
that my son is why we're here
I think it's you who should...Read More

My Heart Pulsates In My Chest
My heart pulsates in my chest
When you come around
All bets are off
I lay my cards on the table
As you shuffle the deck
And I tremble to think
That you actually know me 
Yet still stay by my side
