Time’s passing
By Miracle Man

Some facts I’ve gleaned from having long life,
Age makes a Pit Bull become a Chihuahua pup.
But lacking wisdom, it can’t avoid strife,
It still barks loud but can’t back it up.

The great abuser
I can lie like you wouldn’t believe,
Convince you beyond doubt,
I’ll back it up with reasons that make sense,
I’ll say it with sincerity,
Staunch and resolute,
Done so well I won’t need a defence,
I’ll play the victim,
Play the crowd,
I’ll play my part so...Read More

Premium Member RING IN THE NEW YEAR


I look to the new year
with a sense of hope
determination to do better
address the goals that I neglected
knowing as years advance
I only get so many restarts
I wield the power to upgrade
to readjust priorities
wipe last year’s slate
and start anew
I make my...Read More

Premium Member Speak Up
Don't want to be a bother,
Don't want to come between
Don't want to cause distraction
Don't want to make a scene.

Though stating really clearly-
I fear there's something wrong and
If i can't state it here
Where else do I belong?

There's problems in society and

Premium Member The Book of Charm
What is this charm that others have?
Magnetic attraction and attention grabbing,
Playing the room like the Pied Piper of Hamelin.

Charm like a souffle needs careful attention to detail,
    practice and handling with care.
Overdone it flops and sags to...Read More

You Can Have It All
You can have the days beginning
You can bring it to the end
You can clear out of the middle 
Take it all with you my friend

You can swing from forever after
Relish in the here and now
Remove all of the laughter
Melt down...Read More

Remember the old boom box boogey down to the socks

 Parachutte pants with the hair high fade
 Wake up late in a purple haze saying it's going to be one...Read More

Perhaps
Perhaps for the last time,
I have fallen in love.

Does it betray me a fool
To so often fall blindly
For women I imagine
To match my ideal?

Perhaps it is not women,
But the same woman,
Over and over,
Since I first saw her
Occupying the same space
As...Read More

Look at the facts not the Debate
Do you see anything to smile about?
Someone was on fire during the debate
He drank so much water he stuttered
That a sign the raft of hell is getting hotter
Now I am more confused than ever

Our life isn't a political flash game
Do...Read More

Shopping Spree 

It was a big shop, large as warehouse it sold everything I didn’t need;

 I could back it up to the...Read More

A Single Side Effect
With my very first bout of chemo
The first side effect I found
Was pain along my jaw bone
When ere’ I first bit down
Let me back it up some
So you might understand
Pain along the jaw bone
Is uncommon with this brand
And if it...Read More

Facedown on the carpet I just knew that I would die, 
the red obscures my vision as the blood dripped in

"Pole Playing" (Round Eight)
So, are you in the mood to play your role,
Because I am ready to set the scene,
Holding, in my hands, a stack full of green,
At the stage, in the basement, with the pole.
I want to see if you can reach...Read More

On this special day Lord,
I shall not ask for much.
Just your arms around me,
That I might feel your touch.

Be continually upon my life.

SIMPLY IN LOVE
I’m not thinking with my mind
I’m only using my heart
When I knew it was fooling me all along
Right from the start
I foolishly thought it would last
Now it’s a vision of my past
Now I’m stuck in the present
With an unwanted present
Confused...Read More

A beautiful melodic chance to enhance the ear
