love is cruel
Love is cruel
But do not be shy
Lift your hands up to the sky
Love will come if you wait

Cold Jonquils know
you’ll steal their glow
unlike their snowy, sunburst blast
your foot long roots will ever last.
Sadly you won’t last too long
a gentle breeze and “POOF” you’re gone
to take up residence at will
bide your time again – until
you feel...Read More

This is not a limerick
It’s a Nick Trimerick
I’ve purloined the boy’s style for a while
To say thanks for the smiles
And cuz it’s fun to shoot rhymes from my gun
(Better duck that one, son
My gun’s shot at least a dozen
And I...Read More

Haven’t been here for a while,
Life turned crazy for a bit,
Like those plastic snowstorms you can buy at Christmas,
Shaking in your child-sized fist,
Making the snow swirl in an improbable way round Mary and Joseph on their journey.
Seemed like someone shook...Read More

Don't bide your time
In the blink of an eye the time passes so fast it flies by 
Define time 
Lives a bitch then you die 
Eye of the storm watches over my lifestyles fate
In dire straight bathing as the holy water washes over...Read More

Bullies shouldn't prosper, Bullies shouldn't win,
Do they realise the pain they cause as they stand and grin?
Picking on the weak ones, some half of their size,
If a victim stood up to them, they'd get a big surprise,

You have a fear...Read More

Where have you been my drifting friend?
What have you seen along the way?
Perhaps a storm has sent you here;
your earthly remains to rot away.

A force greater than life itself
ripped you from earth's nurturing breast.
The time had come to send you...Read More

Hear the clip-clop of iambic beats

Or just the tippity-tap of some mouse you clickin’..?

The sharp tooth of truth
I stood atop of my pointed view and felt the sharp tooth of truth.
How elegantly we lived the lie,  a fictional legend always on the edge of a prequel.
But the sharp tooth of truth really cuts the fat right...Read More

Like a glance I catch you
In between seemingly innocent exchanges
When you lean slowly in like the deaf and the dumb 
With your underhanded handiness 
Your adorable strangeness 

Oh, how I see through right through your fragile facade
Sweet girl, boyfriended, gorgeously...Read More

Coping and Keeping Sane
Fill in the blanks of the words you forgot to say
Saying goodbye cuz I’m wasting my life away
Bury my emotions deep cuz I think that’ll make them go away

Smell the roses cuz that’s what they tell me to do
Stop and...Read More

Thus bide your time

And you may find

Oh Winter, with your icy heart
Your cold beauty sets you apart
But time to ease your steely grip
Soon springtime's turn must start

Oh Winter, your fires burning low
New life stirring in the earth below
Bide your time until next year
Hearts long for springtime's...Read More

A Little Too Far South
Prevented by chains of numeric organization
Ready for more but only stuck in contemplation

Just like a soldier told “Stay at your station”
Liberty and justice, now that’s a sensation

Life is hard but they hardly know my situation
My brain reaches panic due to...Read More

The Moth falls clear of emotions, but not a burning candle
When the Moth flies drained of all her feelings
Flight weakens her wings, all that is cherished
Wings dry like powder, caught in a stale breeze
Powder falls up and out, tender this does make 

When wings carry the weight of the world
Flight...Read More

You think you’re something’ special,
cause you’re Arizona bound!
You think we’re really gonna feel it,
when you’re no longer 'round!

You prob’ly think that we’ll feel sad,
and some of us will cry,
as we shake your hand or kiss you,
and exchange that last “good-bye!

Confessions of an Insomniac
In the wee small hours of the morning
When sleep will not oblige itself to come
One thought leads to another and yet another
And my brain will not surrender deliberation
Until morning

Emotions so fickle when the shadows of night 
Permeate my bedroom
Thoughts during...Read More

Oh pagan mistress, your sins weighed heavy
Your conspicuous makeup masks your unsightliness
If only your admirers knew of your sins against man
They would have, long ago, cast you into the streets
Harlot, bide your time, bide your time o' woman of ill...Read More
