Oh joblessness, you aweful, aweful thing!
I know you again and the misery you bring.
Never do you keep away for long, do you?
You evil doer, a form of a devilish 
mind, you seek to demise the good of mankind. 

You are...Read More

Love's Music
Love’s Music

If music be the food of love, play on;
play on, oh my Beloved.
Let the sweet melody of your song
fill the dark realms of night 
like the beautiful voice 
of a besotted nightingale.

Sing only for me … 
only for me,...Read More

Premium Member Dawning on Me Slightly
Dawning on me slightly
is a twilight whose pinks are breathless
Leaning on me in a nurturing way

Dancing toward me now
is a forest faerie who seems rather restless
Preening with a satisfied grin

Dreaming in my rem state
I am in awe, amused and besotted
Loving...Read More

How His Grandparents Met, Part III
...Harold was gob-smacked by all that he heard,
he struggle hard to find something to say,
his grandfather smirked, and then clear his throat,
“Now your grandma I didn’t meet that way.

“I first learned of her from your Aunt Marie,
back when she worked...Read More

Unlike the vast population swath,
with painful hangover
average celebrant merely
doth confusedly blink,
who devoutly pledge
new year resolution
to give up drink
immediately fall off wagon

as he/she eagerly downs
shot after fermented shot
while forearms link
with family, friends,
strangers, et cetera
and immediately...Read More

Well for starters Nationwide

Premium Member Besotted
Jealousy eats at me, masticating my miserable flesh,

each time I see your opulent smile it takes yet another bite,
chewing slowly savoring and seeking my heart to enmesh

. . .as visceral emotions move slow through molasses midnight.

An elegant woman, clad solely in white,
Graces the realm of imperial night,
Capturing hearts with her magnetic stare,
That shatters the reason of men everywhere.

The lady has diamonds adhered to her dress,
And gives away magic with every caress,
Enigma lurks in the depths...Read More

A straw man stood fixed upon timber firm, 
gazing at Autumn's gilded, moonlit prize.
He, the king of Earth and the winding worm,
she, the pale darling of cold starry skies.

Left in fallow field of harvest' soiled gown, 
with sun bleached woolen...Read More

Premium Member Be Not
Be not becalmed, but busy, buzzy, bustling; 
bedazzling but not bedraggled;
beloved, bewitched but be not besotted.
Be bewitching, but not belittling nor besmirching.

Begin to be -
become, belong, befriend, beseech, beget
Bewilder, befuddle, bedazzle, 
Make bequests - beguile, beseech, bestow, bequeath,
to belay fate...Read More

I was condemned 
from the first day I saw you.
Bewitched, enamored for ever
by your inexplicable beauty.
Little did I know
where you were to lead me.
I was a slave to Eros,
a fickle love 
god aided by his snide piper Pan.
You brought me...Read More

Feline Friends
We invite them into our home and, 
before we know it, they’ve wrapped 
themselves around our hearts.

We don’t own them, they employ us
to meet their every need, telling us
in no uncertain meow what they want.

In the mornings, before the kettle...Read More

polka dot crazy
My uncle's polka dot bow-tie is markedly symbolic,
For he has been, throughout his life, a fervent spotaholic.
His patient wife, dear Dottie, with whom he is quite besotted
Will only buy him underpants if suitably bespotted!

Layla And Majnun

Flower of love bloomed in dunes of desert
Besotted Layla carried in niche of her heart
It withered in the tribal Arabian harsh summer
Unrequited virgin love went to the grave with her.

Deranged Majnun wandered in love’s wasteland
Etched the requiem of broken heart...Read More

Roy Reindeer was feeling romantic.
He’d gone from just lonely to frantic.
He’d soon be besotted,
for nearby he spotted
a lovely doe. She was gigantic!

Poor reindeer! For brains he had puddin’.
He wanted to mate, but he couldn’t.
In this strange encounter,

I remember the first time you lied
to allay your fear of ineptness;
you told me that I oughtn't try
for my lack of finesse and depth.

your "prowess," your pride and some other.
It was tougher to pin,...Read More

Hocus Pucus
At every birth is God, by whom
each lifespan is decided,
and when One spends another year,
a cherubim will then appear
to note the age, lest one spend more
than what the Lord's provided...

Medieval wenches, ravenous
for skin that...Read More
