Premium Member Everyday Is A Cliffhanger
Each book in my library must be read, each one, each and every one,
vagrant, homeless papers must find a forever home, I must
edit, amend, revise, reword and condense a poem-
Rattled, I search for my keys, oh collywobbles!
Yearning for tranquility instead...Read More

At Days End I Rage
Battle lines drawn
 Stance firm
 Weapon in hand.
 I step into the war zone 
 I'm rigid. Already defeated.
 So much to see.
 All the red.
 I grip, I breathe, I brace.
 Everything in me says turn and go. You've...Read More

The Interlude of Aphradere: The Waves of the Sea
Recovery from within takes longer than expected I noticed from the start
I'm growing weary of going through trials of endless letdowns in heart
Underneath the dust and dirt of past irrational phases,
The truth will give you freedom beyond words and phrases

Prelude to a Storm


As with all preludes
there is much mummery and mockery,
a delirious glee to be 
just below the overhanging wave,
yet dry enough to prance
and mimic the oncoming monster.

Now the windowpane is dampened
by a stupor of uprooted clouds,
if you touch its cold bare...Read More

Premium Member She was free, at last

~
The stones were many, 
though still he climbed, 
dismantling the mortar crusted wall,
leaving rubble in his wake
as he made his way to the top
Breathless, this world beyond 
the border clung to its silence, 
imprisoned by apprehension tightly 
binding a heart...Read More

Accumulating Anger: The Ugly Beauty
The enemy draws near
I will not shed any tears,
For I'm stronger than fear
My cup is filled with cheers

This shame and calamity that ended up in rue

Motes

Their forms have leaked into my mind;
women who have become
interchangeable body parts 
in a chemical reaction I have with myself.

A female once undressed with a smile
seeps through closed lids,
another woman, once passed on a street
lived for years as a reoccurring...Read More

The Brown Phoenix
Doubly twisted
Hating thine existence
tremors of a neurotic hand
Violent and bitter
Consumed by Ashen sands

Like the phoenix 
I’m reborn
Rebranded
Undoubtedly divine
My wings transform to arms
My beak into lips

I walk amongst the giants of the land 
Hands stretch outwards towards yours
Like a Superman in...Read More

Premium Member THE THIEF AND THE VAMPIRE
On All Hallows Eve I was home all alone,
And the wind 'round the eaves gave an eerie moan.
Outside my window the moon shone bright,
And I saw something strange in the pale moonlight.

Out on the lawn in the shadows was lurking,

There was love and sorrow
We shared the good and bad
Never thinking of tomorrow
We only thought of what we had

Not that we were really suffering
We knew the meaning of friendship

There was acceptance...Read More

Premium Member trying to be brave
If I weren’t afraid, 
I’d sail toward shores of safety
where pebbles surfacing the

heart;
courage bleeds with fear and I 
am still longing to be confident

Premium Member Rise to Roar

How many years I have remained
silent and sullen, and all in vain,
as abiding woes and spirit drained
languish in loss, uncertain of gains.

Addicted or destined? 
I've tried to abstain.
Could I disappear, 
would demons be slain?

I think I will stay and write...Read More

THE FIGURE IN THE MIRROR

Standing all alone for an unknown time,
The Caracal pistol in my right hand was fully loaded
But I couldn’t fire a shot.
Half choked by a rising paroxysm of rage,
And half-suffocated by his triumph,
I stared unseeingly but he was still there.

I should...Read More

Premium Member KRISTY AND THE CONCH SHELL

Along some bank of ambiguity.
Isolated while in wonder,
I lacked motivation.
Consequently, I preferred to be someplace different.
I perceived myself wandering near the banks,
Concerning one Tiber River in Rome.
"What is behind me,
Is not in front of me!"
Snickering, I proceeded onward.
Moreover, moments diminished,
And...Read More

Give me something white 
Something close to nine

Open wide your pure disease...Read More

Premium Member My Shadowlands


In the forest of my mind
Between the trees and sunlit glades,
There are paths I dare not take
Hidden, somewhere in the shade.

Sometimes I glimpse fleeting shadows
Apprehension floods my mind,
At arms length I keep such thoughts
Afraid to face what I may find.

Final Class at Faraday

One hundred yards back off the highway, beyond a tree filled lane.

Premium Member That Lonesome Desert Road
There is an awe in the soul 
When travelling across the desert’s night.
Silence except for the rhythmic roll,
Signs that light and go dark with the flight.

Stars brilliant, saucer-sized 
Against the darkest blue,
Still apprehension in the loneliness
Of desert’s nightly hue.

Growing up he had this dream…to be a millionaire…
