An ant crawling up a tree
Has hope that it will not
Fall down because of the breeze
Hope is the outer covering of a sweet
Hope is me waiting for my order of pizza
So sure that it will arrive and I will be...Read More

My Thoughts on Friendship
Written: by Miracle Man

They are not always friends
who come to you with outstretched hands,
and being friendly doesn't constitute friendship.

But I can be a friend to you
without your being a friend to me.
Our demeanor often keeps friendship from...Read More

The Path
‘The Path’

Childhood days, lost in a haze
along this path we passed
only to forget..

Sounds of laughter
haunt my soul
as fervor has taken its toll..

Back when love was
bright and true
Father Time is given his due..

From innocence to ignorance
life has called only to stumble

She flies near my cheek and gives a peck
Oh !I love that duck
She is a darling
Now I should imprint her on my coffee mug....Read More

I'm Not A Victim
It starts in a basement age 4.
Then a bedroom age 15.
A doorway while blacked out age 16.
My boyfriend made me when I was 19.
I was drunk and heartbroken at age 20.
I was saved by the man who did the same...Read More

Somebody I could count on 
Interested in architecture  
Best at making mashed potatoes    
Loved by his family 
Immersed in reading mysteries 
No matter what was said we made up   
Greatly missed

Unrequited love
As soon as I open my eyes

Only to realise 
Your not there, it was just dream

As know you don't feel the same as me 
It's so very clear to see...Read More

The Cemetery

Children going back from school
and took the quick way through the cemetery.
They stopped by a new dug grave.
One of the children said: who was he?
Oh, just another old asshole.
One of the children said.
Since my soul overheard their remark
I forgave...Read More

A treasure of knowledge
A loving past time
The beautiful touch of a book makes me smile
Books prove the existence of God.

In a world which is treacherous and mean
A society which tortures and shines with the hue of money
A book means love...Read More

Years After, I have Buried You
I tasted leaves
the season of aged skin
Below me was the ground
gray in pieces
At George Akens
I saw us sittin
in a dull orange booth
sippin long cool drinks
and eatin chicken
down to the bone
and talkin about the springs
when we went fishin
in the close past

Lola The Polar Bear
Lola lived in the polar regions
A place very cold
Lola wished that she didn't
Now she was getting old
She was fed up with the same weather
At all times
Her thermometer was out of whack
She longed for warmer climes
This was impossible
Feeling like a fool
She...Read More

No more tears
I've heard you swear,
I've seen you weep,
I've held you when you had no sleep.

I've shouted, i've cursed,
I've sent rude texts
To this one-time friend
Who's now your ex.

He should have been better,
He should have been kind,
But now it's time
To put him out...Read More

An Ode to shows of my childhood
A bear and his best friend, mouse.
They both lived in a big blue house.
This girl is completely unstoppable.
She could do almost anything possible.
Three friends with the same name, just different spelling.
To make money for jawbreakers, rip-offs they were selling.
This man...Read More

The stomach bug
I'm not that worried about a simple "ah choo", as the stomach bug is a nastier brew..

The weather's been cold and then suddenly fair, harvesting bacteria every where..

Last night I dreamt of you
Last night I dreamt of you,

Putting your arms around me,
Telling me to go to sleep, 
Telling me you loved me.

The music was playing and I had you...Read More

IF poets ruled the world
If poets ruled the world,
All would be kept in line,
Everybody would know a rhyme,
Or receive a fine.

If poets ruled the world,
We would present poems as we dine,
Or we could choose one to mime,
Which would be fine.

If Poets ruled the world,

Diamond Star SLAM
Diamond's won't serve my debts

Nor clear my memory of past regret

And a carrot doth not a mariage make

Or is a Boy's best friend

It only lends it's shine

To stop us going crazy

Because we were promised the Star's

Weathering with you
Some avoid the shallows
and others shun the depths
but I’d drown in your sorrow
and every tear you've wept

Some read for the rhythm 
Others accord me the rhyme
But I’d only let forth the minim 
And Press on with just a dime
