Death Nature 

Oh, how I love nature’s death;
As the season takes it rest;
Taking of its last thread of breath
Alas, climate changes jest;

It’s in death nature floral greenery fades away;
In death nature grounds struck at heart bay;
Death nature’s fallen silence leafs...Read More

Premium Member GRIEF
I'm damaged and broken,
unable to fight.
My days are now spent,
in the absence of light.

My hearts black and blue,
from what I can't control.
A big empty space if you will,
a large black hole.

A place with no laughter,
a place with no touch.
Missing her...Read More

Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

Dangerous, could wind up black and blue 
Drivers patience, not much

Lying on the pavement, needing superglue

The day you died you took me with you,
The way you lied shook me black and blue.

The sorrow you felt, I sure felt it too,

All the sorrows burned...Read More

Premium Member I Miss
I sit and I wait, patiently at first.
Anticipating and longing, for your touch to quench my thirst.
It's been so long, I'm going crazy within.

My hearts been imprisoned, for so terribly long.

you ruined the rain for me
I wish that I had superpowers.
So that I could read your mind. 
I'd violate your thoughts,
As you violate mine. 
With unforgiving relentlessness. 

I would take control of you, 
And I'd make you a puppet.
So that you would know...Read More

Premium Member Pretty Birds
Black and blue, red and green.
Pretty birds.
Lovely birds.
Soar and dive and preen on the scene.
Red and gray.
They play
On black and blue skies of somewhere.
Pretty birds.
Birds in air.
Past museums and statues in the park.
Modern birds.
Gilded birds.
Beauty even leaves a mark in...Read More

love me like you mean it
Love demanded I give my all
Of which meant: “dance to my tune’s call;
voice never, your disagreement;
ensure I have my enjoyment…”

Maybe, if love had been less loud,
endlessness may have been allowed…

Love never gave me back my all
Instead, churned out more and...Read More

I have had my Fill with the Lifelessness of Winter

Fingers stiff, face pale.

She gathered roses,
one at a time,
choosing carefully,
for you see, they were her healing

A light breeze tickled her hair
as a brief smile curved upon her soft lips
The sun, bright on this day was a welcome diversion
from the clouds that followed in...Read More

The Son
Whoa mommy 
Oh where's daddy?
Am i the only son?
I guess he became A ghost
After conserving me, 
Destined to be in the dark
Formulated obstacles and schedules.
And my guardian a widow!
Family life nothing but hard love,
Its tough being black and blue...

I asked Solomon if he knows 
Any new tricks the system has planned for us,

straight paths and chest cases hidden:

	(To the tune of “The Blackboard of My Heart”)

There was a time when I believed
That you still cared for me
But now it seems those foolish dreams
Are just a memory
Your promises were cruel lies
And you said nothing true
That’s why I’m here...Read More

where are your eyes in the 11th hour?
do they roam to and fro, roaring
with insipid power, baiting the hook,
fishing for retractable men?

where is your nose in the 11th hour?
is it sniffing out a cesspool of plots,
hanging with odious men by...Read More

The silent
incessant chatter
thick black ooze

jeers and laughter
jolt lightening barbs
slicing a heart in two

the dark undercurrent
pulls a light soul under
while writing life striving revolutionary new

troll smirks suffocating the sands of true 
a new tyrannical rule eviscerates
the mind bleeds red

Thanks Dad
Why are you surprised to hear the things I do,
You raised me,
Bullied me,
Battered me black and blue,
Don’t be surprised when I turn my hate on you,
You failed me,
Abused me,
And now I’m ed up too.
