"Struggling"

I've been struggling
Doing things that are puzzling
It's rather troubling
How much liquor I've been guzzling

Shiiiit
I admit

I'm not proud at all
I got a problem with alcohol
It'll be my downfall

If I don't fix it
Instead of always getting twisted
On my end, there's been a...Read More

Smoking Kills
Smoking Kills

It started as a one time thing
After that, it would be over
But you called my name so sweetly
You made my mouth water at the thought of you
One more time wouldn’t hurt
Just one last time
Then it would be really over
Never...Read More

Premium Member The road to freedom and back
The motorcar, bus, train, plane and jet
   helped free man from the horse and wagon's sweat
The world was his to explore, to conquer, to see
   with a boost from motion pictures, radio and TV

Then before mid-20th...Read More

Meth you won't be my death
As I sit here and silently wait I can only think this isn't love it must be hate

And all I want to do is feel you in my arm

Premium Member I COULD HAVE LIVED WITHOUT YOU
I remember our first encounter 
I didn't like you much,
But you made me feel so special 
I soon longed for your touch.
I'd press my lips against you.

Trapped in a Daze
I'm skippin' the small talk since it doesn't work anymore
I'm quiet all the time and it's from the fear of uttering the wrong words
I'm always in a daze
My mind always attempts to bring back memories
happier moments of my past instead...Read More

WoW! I am finally here, and I can't believe my eyes,
Everything is so dark and creepy, I am really scared.

Premium Member My Barber My Mama and Me
My hair is in my eyes.
I can barely see.
I improvise,
And quickly Invite a well-known barber for tea.

Scissors in hand, he takes a snip.
Small bald spot on my side.
Ends our non-relationship.
I laughed, and then I cried.

Mama is unhappy though.
Did not think...Read More

Take Back Nothing
“Take it back!”
I shouted in protest, in earnest
to defend my honesty, personal integrity
Truth be told I don't know why
what she spoke was true
I'm a fool, I'm no good
at least that's what I believe
but this world is much more grand than...Read More

Divesting themselves of their nighties

Premium Member The Black Cat of the 60's
Remember the skinny black cat art of the 60’s?
I always thought those cats were made by a man,
A slick, sleek advertising man like Darren in Bewitched.
El Gato Gomez is a woman!
I did not know this for fifty odd years.

What lies beneath the lies,
I should not have looked in those deep chestnut eyes-
The deep inside me,
ebony cries…
until the black dove flies.

The day before you died,
I promised to be on your side.
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust-
Mesmerized,
walking forward is...Read More

But I won't soften in your arms
I bristle when you touch me

All in the name of love
You lunge at me with open arms

Eve of No More
Raw, like the skin’s been ripped off me
Crawling, just keep scrapping my knees

Bottoms of bottles just keep staring back to see
Who’s the girl who cut her smile trying to break free

Stab me with needles, I’ll relish you pricking me
I’ll lose...Read More

Willy the Weed
Willy the Weed went to seed
As he spawned off little weeds
To have them blow on gentle breeze
Landing where they may

Some landed in the rolling hills
Others in deserted fields
Burrowing deep for greater yield
To pop up one fine day

Some made their way...Read More
