Unconscious Love
Romeo

'When truth can't help someone,we have to lie'
Until the moment our chance is denied

Mistress put Romeo's life on hold,
The volume key to his life low,
Romeo seems to be like a sheep, polled

It would well be said, he had been invited...Read More

ATTEMPT
When they declared allegiance
Overnight, you would not know
Who is by your side and who is not:
You would not know
If you are a victim or a culprit:
Whether you are prey
Or the hunter,
When the earth threatens
To swallow you in seduced heat
A blast...Read More

DEADLY VOYAGE
Perception is troubling everyone,
Everyone is being disturbed by an ego,
And our feelings tell us of what might happen next to this state of life,
We`re really waiting for where mankind will be after all is gone.
The voyage is deadly, and we...Read More

Back To The Drawing Board
B-ack to the drawing board, 
O-verhaul the system; 
B-egin to start once more, to avoid any mayhem.

S-oar to increase your sale. 
E-arly twenty-fifth of August, you haven't received reward;...Read More

Time Will Tell
7/28/17


My soul I will never sell
Even if I got to go through hell
Time will tell
If I'll excel
And propel
Doing poorly or swell
Wherever I dwell
Crooked or parallel from any citadel
And hotel
Are you the lion, cheetah or gazelle?

Can't afford to lack
Got to stay...Read More

Premium Member RARE SCULPTURE
I saw your face from afar
You took me by total surprise

You literally  took my breath away

Premium Member That Was a Human
Allow me to be disgusted at the jest
and your halfway happy surprise at the end result
of the missile timed precisely:

Did he just splatter?

And allow me to feel the brunt of the bruising
upon my saddened heart, where for others was felt,

Premium Member The Eye is Such a Braggart
The eye is such a braggart with its emerald this and hazel that.
Does no one dream about an ear or a nose?

But it is a place the Poet seldom goes,

Premium Member Life According to Miss Ooh-La-La
She sits perched, like a gorgeous gargoyle, upon the boulder
splotched with spots of mint chocolate ice cream moss - the wind tasting
her lovely locks as if it were spicy cinnamon straight off the tree.
It excites the senses (to put it...Read More

Senses
What are Senses?
A sense of touch
A sense of smell
A sense of faith.

What happens when they are gone?
Scattered to the wind
Weathered by the storm
Coming up empty.

What do we do then?
Start from scratch
Back to the drawing board
Turning over that leaf.

Will we ever...Read More

Fresh sand garments 
The Mental Colosseum floor
Self-infliction's--waging wars

~ AND THE POEM BEGINS ~

A mask, tiny holes
Breathing heavily
Dancing around my toes
Broad carbon steel
Safe behind my will
Equipment of revenge
Fencing the world with my eyes

I bow, with the morning dew,

The ignominy of buying and 
selling 
Is disgustingly despicable 
The church of God 
Has lost its taste 
Its flavour diminished 

The worldly purview 
Is warming its way into the

Money is the order of the day

Obscured Lenses

Looking for a pattern, no not the glasses

Back to the drawing board
Lost in my own sorrow
can't even keep a friend
My constant source and window
just slammed in my face
Chalk lines and smudge marks
travel across my face
I just wish to be held
and someone to hear my fears
Anxiety builds
and screws with my mind
