The Thread Of Love

Like wind through my hair she blows soft and gentle
inside my beating heart, she is like a velvet mantle

I fall breathless at her feet making her my only goal...Read More

Premium Member We Should Have Danced
Too much time working
  stepping up the ladder at the job
the endless struggle toward the dream
  when the future was everything.

All on hold in each attempt
  seeking out the goals and future visions
where two beating hearts planned

Premium Member It's A Wonder
It's a wonder,
  indeed it is
  her hand in yours, not his.
The rhythmic beating of your heart

Craving took over 
Twisted her neck like a soda cap 
The woods were silent 
All you heard was the snap 

Dragged her body 
Through the remains of the party 
She was a lonely girl 
Drank herself numb with Bacardi 

She...Read More

Premium Member Cries of skies
as if a broken-hearted lover
this somber sky cries
streams of tears 

i feel its loneliness
beating like a heart
against my window 

I hear its sob
through a pained wind 
as it echoes 
in the distance 

i look out 
its misted grief

True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I
under the covers,
the air becoming
more and more stale
as my breathes become
deeper. And quicker.
The tapping is music and
rhythmic and present and
all in time with the frantic
beating of...Read More

What colours a heart

What colours a mind

What colours a soul

we carry torches

from station 
to station

We are the Light
We Lead

No colour 
No religion

No epic 

Where is the race?
The race to confusion?

We are One
You and me

We are One
We all bleed

Every night I dream of you,
Could I be in your dreams too?
Last night I saw you smiling,
A sweet smile so beguiling,
But your thoughts I could not see!
Were you also dreaming of me?

Dreamt you walking down the road,
Walking past my old...Read More

“You might think I'm cold-hearted. I am.
I can't afford distractions. I've got work to do.”
Nathan Edmondson, Black Widow #3

of silk, she is both beautiful and dark.
For flies wrapped with a beating heart aren't...Read More

Premium Member tombstones

in cemetery quietness				
tombstones rap
epitaphs of those
they are paid to represent…

on the outside arena
of the living
there are many of those
wearing and boasting
tombstones of life…

shiny clothes
worn in winter
and thin by hunger
that infuses the bellies
of their children…all
carrying newspaper-blankets
for bus stop benches…
above their heads

Singing the Black Cat Blues
People stop and stare
when I pass them on the street,
some believe it is bad luck
as our paths cross each other
others turn away and do not bother.

Singing the black cat blues.

Superstition follows we wherever I go,
like a black cloud ready to...Read More

Premium Member On Regret
“The storms are raging on the rollin' sea, 
and on the highway of regret”
where the rough erroneous travel
having not found solace yet

A torturous feeling is regret
raining brimstone in the mind
Memories of what should have been
must politely be left behind.

I have you pinned
all your colours

I Am That I Am…Without End…

Listen, my heart is a soul drum
Beating the spiritual rhythms 
Of the sojourning struggle of life—
Pumping pulsating blood inking
The notes of our story—flowing 
From the past to the present—banked
In the here and now—waiting to cascade

I was flying above the clouds like a fairy with shiny wings
And was talking to the rising moon like a little pheasant 
When my mother woke me up from my dream 
To have breakfast with my favorite cream

The Drums of Time -- Exalted
The ceaseless beating of a drum,
fast marks the days ‘til we are done.
Our time will come, our time will come.

Listen, listen, can you hear it?
Growing louder as you near it,
as men of courage, cowering, fear it.

A distant, daunting, haunting hum,

Oh! My Love Red is the color of a rose.
And red is the color of hearts and flowers.
Red roses symbolize romantic lovers.
Two hearts beating the same as one.
Singing and dancing in the moonlight.
Underneath the luminous moon's
silvery light. Singing and dancing...Read More

Pitbull or Poodle
Guns blaze while bodies pile high
Somewhere you’d hope 
They’d be done with the lies
The ones that are talking
they don’t wear the vest
they’re just some more fodder
who hide with the rest
Don’t chain your soldiers
Those who hunt in the dark

With any storm comes carnage, darkness and despair
Some of its imagined, but the rest of it’s right there.
As the fury ran its course, I’ve clung to what I know
It’s in these tests and trials where true colors often show
