Premium Member I Have Always Been a Listener
I am a listener
People know
They come to me
Share their secrets
Trusting me with their fears and burdens
I am honored to keep their confidence

Sure I have a degree
Yes I have special training
But I was trusted
And a careful empathetic listener
Years before any of...Read More

Nothing And No One
Nothing to believe in,
nothing to hold dear

No one to say what you can’t say,
the waters all but clear

Nothing to believe in,
and that includes yourself

You live in fear the truth will rise
—an iceberg your umwelt

Come, You: the death poem of Ranier Maria Rilke
Come, You
by Ranier Maria Rilke
loose translation/interpretation by Michael R. Burch

Come, you?the last one I acknowledge; return?
incurable pain searing this physical mesh.
As I burned in the spirit once, so now I burn
with you; meanwhile, you consume my flesh.

This wood that long...Read More

Are you there?

The reason that I ask
Is to leave no question marks

So are you there my love
As I am here
So you can whisper in my ear

Are you there?

As I can't hear
So now I start to fear
As I think about you...Read More

Space me
A peace of mind 
Walking by myself at a decent time 
No one to check on me

Lower my standards 
A million zillion reasons to
Believe in me 
As I’m reaching you
Every evening new experiences 
This crib I...Read More

Myth, after Dylan Thomas
Myth, after Dylan Thomas
by Michael R. Burch

Here the recalcitrant wind
sighs with grievance and remorse
over fields of wayward gorse
and thistle-throttled lanes.

And she is the myth of the scythed wheat
hewn and sighing, complete,
waiting, lain in a low sheaf?
full of faith, full of...Read More

I am so mellow and quiet…

Good deeds

I believe that a good deed never dies. 
Once performed, it is not fated
to fall to the ground and wither. 
Instead, like gold leaf, it is gently applied
as a burnish, to gild the walls of heaven, 
its light shining in...Read More

Archaic Torso of Apollo
by Rainer Maria Rilke

We cannot know the beheaded god
nor his eyes' forfeited visions. But still
the figure's trunk glows with the strange vitality
of a lamp lit from within, while his composed will
emanates dynamism....Read More

a growling beast
she described her work as creating creatures
using her efforts to summon the greatest fear
of people
she wanted her audience to believe her
and she wrote with an effort to
envision the deepest and darkest
feeling of fear and loneliness
the author paints the canvas
so that...Read More

Give me a Chance
Give me a chance to confess my fault
Wait for a while, your horses must halt

To preclude from twining the entire Whole
And in trying hard not to hurt any living soul

I let the Glass go from my little hand
Thus, it shattered...Read More

naive seventeen
When you sung songs of naïve seventeen
No chord was struck, nor one thought rewritten 
For love so young, surely, it was extreme
And left small hearts yet deceived and broken
For hope of love shrouded in the naïve—
No thought, I had, of...Read More

Innocence confronts a world that’s corrupt
addicted to sin
and thrill of the win,
where suppressed emotions spew and erupt.
Although naught is said
innocence gets shed.
And as children prepare for reality
trading fantasy dreams for hyperbole,
time chases its shadow.

But adolescence’s adrenaline rush
sets you free at...Read More

Solemnly, I thirst for weak, wet water,
Lakes and ponds wavy, wealthy water.

solemnly, wicked, worried water.

Solemn, windy, wild water.

Solemn, witty, worthy water.
solemn,  wobbly water

solemn, wise, water solemn

Subtitled:  The Moon Carries a Rope

A strange, eerie, black feeling of despair,
I am lost, alone, no one seems to care
except the Moon who appears and prepares.

He throws me a long rope, yelling, "Catch hold!"
Noticing my doubt, "Have no fear!"...Read More

Lincoln Quote For Andrea
Lincoln was a white man of his time. He wasn't as bad as the majority,
north or south, but he was undoubtedly a white supremecist.
I'm white, but if I were black there's no way he'd cut the mustard
as a pin-up boy...Read More

Who is knocking on my empty stump
on this cold and dreary night?
I glanced at my friend, but she was snoring away,

I went to the door with my loaded acorn, 
ready to shoot me some bear.
