By invoking the powers of Avalokitesvara,
You will float in the void like the Sun.
Or if you...Read More

Premium Member Laments of Love
Lamenting love rest upon my humble heart,
May thy candle burn quickly before thy night…
Loves lament lies lingering from far apart,

For the slings and arrows deploy and depart,
Solitary stars sacrificed amidst dying light…
Lamenting love rest upon my humble heart,

A broken hearts...Read More

Premium Member Algophilia
Something grim lurks beneath the surface
Where shadows distort warning signs of déjà vu
Like windows to an alien subconscious
Obscuring revelations you hope are not true

All the anguish in your eyes
We’ve suffered for millennia
Once you start to realize
Despair will feed their algophilia

Cleopatra
Sun’s splendor orange ball spread
O’re granite giants and tame vales 
Wild wind’s daring waft he rode
How mystic, oh fate; ired dragon 
By ired hero’s hand slayed
Upon chariot fierce steeds
Thunder and spear soiled the field 
Slain souls of victory sang

 We're Here, And You're Not! (The Nazi Dream)

No man is born perfect (at least I'm that smart),
Though I'd never exclude you, tone deafness' black art,
It's 'oil cast on the water!' Is poetry's grooving
Not part of your plan? May God...Read More

Moth
In a kingdom full of ants
The splendid spider spidering
Deep into that darkness frogging
Death shall bring candlefish
It threw its ghost against the grubs

Cancer of my soul
Cancer of my soul

It started unknowingly without a hint
In the deepest draped portion of my soul
Spreading it's empire in deathly shadowed glint
Armies of selfish thoughts multiplied defeating benevolent cells breathing hours
Loudest mute battle inside each soul's atom armoured
Drilling in wall...Read More

It's after the 'landslide!' Thieves stole the election!
This traitorous scum bag's a Russian invention,
But 'Charmin' for Putin (that's on a good day!)
For the dark side of Trump's just black art on display!

Whose sure what this dictator knows that we don't...Read More

Wars and crimes,
Hunger and thirst,
Sad for the world,
My heart bursts.

Holding onto hope by my fingertips,
Drinking polluted water by sips.

Blood of the wounded,
Blood of the dead,
Blood of the innocent on their heads.

My mother's tears,
My father's fears,
All in the hands of the...Read More

Statuesque Radiance
It was wonderment.
The mesmerizing expression rolled off her tongue in waves. 
To my puzzlement I was in a state of allurement.
Her vibes were sent to me in soothsaying proportions.

It was almost trickery, but I knew where I was going.

A Stranger Dismayed
In the distance
A stranger sees the smoke.
His attention is heavily veiled
overburdened under an obsessive cloak.

Unable to shed his curiosity
his focus exiled within
this animosity

A few goodbyes
departing his tent now
with only a tiring pace
his lust for truth made avow

My Black Art
I am the One
I bring the fire
Vaporize your body
evident of perspire

I bring the heat
burning more then cayenne
Too dangerous to hold
Keep away from children

I am the lighter
Friction sends a spark
Blow out the flame
Live alone in the dark

I bring you warmth

DARKEST HOUR
In the darkest hour of her deepest despair

The pain was so great she was madly aware

 

It went deep in her heart to the very worst part

Where there was nothing, just cold, dark, black art.

 

Pain turned to anger as...Read More

Spit
You have no doubt,
So spit it out!
The jig is up,
Time for you to run,

You don't want to be
Another "Chosen One"
Ruled by the great slime below,
Always ready for a show
Of human degredation,
pain and misery...

You don't want to wind up,
Like me. corpse...Read More
