Attend his funeral to console his widow

Pandora's Box
Pandora’s Box

Prometheus was condemned to a fate,
With his liver used as bait. 
He stole the fire from Zeus,
Feeling sorry for mans abuse.
He was caught,
And his binding ropes were taut.

Hephaistos was instructed to make Pandora,
Who radiated a beautiful aura.
She was given...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

The morning light of a new day, 
cascades through the bedroom window. 
I am alone. 
Your pillow is soft, and close by, 
it still smells of you...
I can close my eyes,

The Intelligence Of Tuna
There where the tuna sleep mighty
Wet as usual imprisoned in ocean
There are creatures above with poles
The oxygen nitrogen breathers 
The ones with limbs on their sides
With eyes facing front fashioned to hunt
Beings that live in the thin environment
Trying to take...Read More

The shade is nice under the large tree, but once the shade is lost, the wanderer will die.
When the small tree can finally leave the shadow of the larger tree, it can feel the sun’s ray.
But the shadow is comfortable,...Read More

Only the strong and smart will take note 
For that saying will strengthen what was wrote 
And not be casted aside by others vote 
It's like whisper to beware of cut throat

My soul shattered by the bullet of betrayal…

Shivering shards sliced throughout my sullen system 
Nights nagged with naissant nightmares
Mornings moved as malignant monsters 
Trust twisted in tabescent thorns tearing within me
Silence stabbed my skin over and over since
I ignored prayer,...Read More

The morning dew
Take my hand
Let us dance through the night
And let me see you fight!

I know you have been a loner
All your life so it's
Difficult for you to 
Understand my point of view!

But we have things 
We both knew 
To get us...Read More

I will never give in, 

To you,

I eat words of truth,

I have my teeth in it,

Never will I quit,


Is what comes due,

You can't hide, 

Behind your lying lips,

Not everyone, 

Is willing, 

To be taken,

It's true,

I have my teeth in...Read More

A Single Dream
I am lying on the ground
Trying to tune out the sound
The sound of the screams
Oh how I hope this is a dream

Everything is blurry
I am now running
From everything that I see
The people the trees
The horror

Oh how the dream
Oh how the...Read More

Missing Things

Holding places for pain

Discomfort holds you close
Moments seems like hours
Staring with hope
It hurts not be acknowledged...Read More

The Broken Mirror Of Time
Looking through the broken mirror of time, 
I visit times and places from the past.
To have loved never should have been a crime; 
Yet, somehow I was always thought of last.

The fragments grow smaller as time moves on, 
And seven...Read More

Premium Member my DEAR HEART broken
i danced in bubbling innocence,
but shrouded with tainted boundaries-
no more simplicity
without redemption;
my soul complicity,
my essence like dying memories

i strike a fever like waves of lightning,
the storm never ceases
even in autumn breezes
i find this affair of dread most frightening

weeping with willows...Read More

Cries of Gaia
The planet is in pain,
She's crying every day,
Have we all just gone insane,
For Our cruelty she cannot sway,

The trees creak with alarm,
As their bodies we still borrow, 
All we bring is harm,
And a doom upon tomorrow,

Will the whispers in the...Read More

One will be a businessman one will be an architect
And the third one will be a contrarian
Critical of the social orders.

Oh, that music from the movie,
so impassions me!
That haunting violin, with its moving

Notes fill the air of man's most craven 
inhumanity to man.
The reminder that it can indeed, verily
happen again.

One man, Schindler, saved so many 
precious Jewish lives.
