Valentine's SLAM
A centric couple

Echanging different coloured roses

Holding hands with vice like grip

Earth betwix their curling toes

Beneath a moonlight torn astray

With such so birthed exploding hearts

It even stirs the deaf neighbours

And labours love

Valentine poison arrow breech

Still hidden in the shadowy hall's

Of old...Read More

Advice Better Late than Never
Advice,
Better late than never

I was advised to ask the Doctor
For a home visit

And within just 5 minutes

My Mother was admitted to A&E

Because in all honesty i think
towards the end she was screwing
with me getting in my head

Playing game's putting me...Read More

We are already in Heaven
And what we don’t realize is that
We are making it a Hell.

There are beautiful flowers here
And do we love them sincere?

They don’t bloom even in that Heaven
And they are born here

Equitably Delivered Comeuppance Betokens Agony
Awareness about behavior,
present since mine days of yore
an unswerving allie analogous
to peacekeeper ending civil war
belated insight suddenly realized

(better late than never) doth underscore
incumbent proactive communication stance
belatedly bestowed omnipotent awareness
crucial fostering ingredient to shore
maternal bond above

Dirty tricks liar wh a mirror tax production slam
I am watching liar
Go from tears to grace 
With the same indistinguishable sallow face
And emotional state of fluxed empathy
The frown conceals 
Beneath the brow of dirty tricks 
Without a flicker 
To wake's each day ever slicker

Premium Member Unconditional love letter to my kids


From generation to generation
Times have changed so much
By leaps and bounds
Back when technology did not exist
I grew up in a family of 13 kids
Survival was the game of life
Working hard day and night
Trying to make a better life
Nothing was easy

Better Late Than Never


Sitting in the back car
of a fast moving train,
two strangers, their eyes slowly collide
Probing questions
over dinner by candlelight,
got so much in common they soon realize
Come late evening,
there’s dancing and laughter
Such a strong attraction they cannot hide
At the end of the...Read More

The Tragedy Fades
At twenty-three, Brett found his girl,
A green-eyed vision with strawberry curls,
A year of dating came and went,
And wedding bells the sky did rent.

Life was good, he worked as a welder,
And rushed at night, tales to tell her
Of buildings built and...Read More

I Don't Always Understand
6/26/17

Skies with an occasional rainbow
While organisms and plants across the terrain grow
Just trying to take care of business and lay low
Whichever way I go
This is real life not no game show
Nobody is perfect and has a halo

Nikola Tesla
Tesla what in the hell did they do to you.
They stole your ideas and then they left you,
Sitting with nothing they stole your dreams.
They took your gadgets and your machines.

Edison admitted he should not have let you go.

Rocket Ship People
Send that message
That signal so far
Is there a tower, some beam
That could speak to that distant star
A million miles
Separated
Years on that rocket
Could get anyone jaded
We looked up as kids
That glitter caught our eyes
Stole our hearts
Spun beautiful lies
How pretty those stars...Read More

Better Late Than Never
B-etter late than never,

E-very well wish from friends

3am on the clock
And still I can't get to sleep

And been thru even more
We've had our good days

Three tears
We sisters three
like the musketeers
tears anyway;
bonded by a childhood 
that should never have occurred.
no-one heard the splash 
as I was pushed overboard
except my father....
he does not deserve that title.
48 years later
I am certainly making that splash
heard now.
The healing for we...Read More
