When old duffers reach that over-the-hill age
Loud noises bother them, they get bent out of shape
Get cranky and stuff
Wearing furry ear muffs
Like from the looney bin they just escaped

"The Immensities"

Suspended between the Immensities
She throws flames from her eyes
Love’s never perfect,
When is the perfect time?
A woman is imperfect
A Life corroded, 
a heart that’s been suffocated broken
becomes hard as Jade
Real Life never rhymes

She wades out through 
The Shallows 
past their...Read More

Don't you dare call my home,
I have no time for you.
Instead, our information we give out merrily,
To Google, Facebook and others unseen,
Of these...there is no lack.

Worse, we don't care if our cell phones 
follow our tracks.
Nor hundreds of ad clicks, those monkeys...Read More

Most people are easily bent out of shape
Like Paperclips
Because they can't hold it together
Like Paperclips
My words are weapons so I lock & load
My Paper Clips
I bet your two cents is worth less 
Than a Paperclip

Have you ever felt like you were going to die?
And you knew good and well the reason why;

Where this is going to go 
But have you ever stopped long enough 
To take a look at your toes

They all look so different...Read More

yesterday's broken
are you one of yesterday's broken
or at least bent out of shape
does tomorrow have you hoping 
that today will go away

in spite of the troubles made
it doesn't take a detective 
to see the blessings that...Read More

Word is
Slippery shadows are cast into a shallow trench
A homeless man mutters through a drunken stench
There's no telling what you can hide in a hole
So better wash your hands and the dirt off your soul.

And word is I heard my sweet...Read More

Yesterday I drank and smoked
Now today I surely don't

Yesterday I was bent out of shape
Today I'm lifting all kinds of weights

Yesterday gave into want's and needs
Today I'm setting myself free

Yesterday gave up the bad
Now today there's nothing left

Yesterday what I...Read More

That I might just have time to make my own wake
If I don't soon enough figure out what to do

i knew nothing at all of little white shoes

sweet tiny arms stretched to hands, fingers, thumbs

Caged Up
My past is finished
It's all filled with pain.
My past is killing me
'Cause I'm trapped in this lane.

My mind is at war with me.
I can't control the thoughts deep
inside of me.
I'm bent out of shape with all this pain.
I think it's...Read More

I am a wire. 
I am always getting bent out of shape by wrenches.
They are always twisting me and bending me.

Camping trips with mom and dad

Why does one have one bazillion fb friends…
Many not even know their face or name.

Tucked away feeling safe in the notebook's metal binder
Waiting; the pen thinks of the times spent with the poetess

Maybe even place him against her soft lips, then

It must be great to have a solid flag pole
But if the flag does not move what good is the pole?
You might try a few different flags but again they 
need to fly and not hang limply on the pole

I bring you my little heart
