A Brief For The Defense 

Sorrow everywhere. Slaughter everywhere. If babies 
are not starving someplace, they are starving 
somewhere else. With flies in their nostrils. 
But we enjoy our lives because that's what God wants. 
Otherwise the mornings before summer...Read More

If I Had To Die Tonight
As this piece is being typed, I'm only fifteen, 
Though come the twelfth of April I will soon be 16

Double that, and I know with certainty that I will...Read More

No twilight concerto to sway     not yet
as  zigzag street lights pound upon
heavy fog  clutching iced flakes  on rooftops
like hushed matte from night's gale
pouring bitter ovules to a past in need of relief.

All trees travel skyward
All leaves seek to hug sun
All flowers wish to emit scent
I too crave for the crescent

Whether sky or sun or crescent
Of course all don’t deserve
There is the order of high and low
Dews smile at the jagged judgment

Dews,...Read More

Tribute - But That's Beside the Point
I told myself I wouldn’t stress.
But it’s eight p.m. and I’m a mess
I really wanted to be profound
But I couldn’t decide what to write about
Something metaphorical? That’d require me to think
Insanity? I’m on the brink
I can assure you I had...Read More

Premium Member Meal, A Movie, And A Date
A date with my Hubby is an amazing and a most wondrous thing…
It starts with the McDonald’s Dollar menu and then we grab and run, I say!
Then we’re off to the local Laundromat where the movie begins the fun.

moon
Oh moon!
in night you stroll
amidst stars,
a silhouette a day,
why?
Oh moon! 
to eulogize, an exemplar!
in night, a guide!
albeit this honour,
 a form a day!
why?
night, if you’ve gone astray,
no joy for us,
oh moon! 
form, beside the point, 
come unfailingly,
to entertain us!
come lastingly.

As they walk down the aisle cheerfully holding hand and hand I can say I am a part of the cause
No longer do they have to drive so far to legally express their feelings
They are everywhere you go

She is the one i want

You make me not wanna get pissed at my rivals

If words were like f#$%ing
My dreams are cutting into my fun time
Fiddle faddle, diddle diddle
Should have something worthwhile
But eyes just ache
And my heart pounds like a thing that pounds
I wish I was dead
Or high and dry
But I was born to beside the point

She shot...Read More

Level Headed and Easy Grounded
where does love come from?
where does love stop?
i've met too many that speak of its nonexistence
i know far too many sadists, 
masochists, pessimists, nihilists

on my long-winded ride to the top (of what?)

I Just Wanted To Say I'm Sorry
I just wanted to tell you sorry one more time.
So I'm sorry for the lie and I'm sorry for hurting

Forget It
Just forget it all!
Forget about what
has been said or
written or been done!

Even forget what
up to now dimly 
you may still have
recalled as you felt 
being entertained 
one way or the other! 

Dispose of it and
send it to the bin
for waste...Read More
