if you think you can have another man, on the side;
Then it's off with you, then you and you friend need to go bye-bye-bye-bye;
Don't shed a tear in front of me;
I'll give you know sympathy, my, my, my

Premium Member You Love who you Love who you Love
Love comes at inopportune times
It slides in sneakily 
and grabs you by your leg hairs.

You might be out of practice
Cupid might be barking up the wrong tree
So you send him away

Knowing if it is love 
Someone will prove it to...Read More

Isn't The Same Old Spiel
8/10/17


Be careful what you ask for
Next thing you know it wasn't all that great, or you want even more

This isn't the same old spiel
I'll tell you something real
Everyone has an 'Achilles heel'


Speaking the truth, life is rather short
Don't be a...Read More

You Know Nothing About
Dark origin behind the dawn of life
Dumb souls laugh far-off stream
A chip heavy on shoulders
Crash with thunder storm
Generous thoughts from heaven
Fall like cold dew in a pail
Walk with a profound heart miles and miles away
Thoughts prevail every time with no...Read More

Silly Christmas Cartoon
Once again the cat was in the cradle
and I didn't even have a silver spoon,
my master always at work leaving me with this loon,
always standing there stiff like with those sticks,

Gone
The relationship between us began to thaw,
my thoughts tumbled in my head, 
making and breaking alliances,
 like underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.
Talking and thinking became to me,
 like the open page of a monthly magazine.
Your picture is silent,...Read More

Barking up the wrong tree
My Mix-Breed "Extra Fluffy" 
happy as can be
Entered in the "Dog-Gone" trials
Just one of eighty-three

Some as big as horses 
some as long as trains
Some so smart they spoke to you
You'd think they had our brains

The judges they were different though
The...Read More

The way that it goes
I awake to find it is raining today.
As I sit down to write what shall I say?
Sometimes it feels like I’m barking up the wrong tree.
The rain keeps on falling and I can hardly see.

Sometimes it seems I can’t get...Read More

You Say... What About Me
You say you need your space, room to breathe
You turn completely cold, I begin to freeze
You now smile and yell I am finally free
You say... What about me
You say all these years I have trapped you and held you back

a dog called: eagle
There are a lot of different breeds of dog,

A dog is a very common four legged-animal
That is often kept by people
Or used to guard 
Or hunt things 
but this female dog
Is a forensic dog
compare with Einstein
According to National Geographic channel

The Roads all Travelled
A wave of depression hit me down in Hope Street.
Hair stood up on end, on a shortcut down Barber's Lane.
Got a no-go from a cash machine, brooding in Bank Street.
Bought some pharmaceuticals, trippin' down the High Street.
Caught a nasty virus,...Read More
