My self
I am a person who is very confused
This world has given me much to cry about
I was torn to pieces and left to weep all night
My mother killed me with a black eye
But tonight , I have a vision

I’ve started writing letters,
I’m sure you have gotten many;
Women who threw themselves at you;
Those who hung on to everything, 
and wrote down anything about you;
Women who’ve  had you, 
perhaps some you wish you had gotten to; 
Perfect signatures but...Read More

Do you know?
Do you realize how beautiful you are?
Do you notice the people whose heads spin as you pass?
Do you feel ANY worth after he's done with you?

Premium Member She Did not Mean to Kill Him
She did not mean to kill him
But she did
A never before unknown self
Had risen from the bowels of preservation

He had approached her with a claw hammer
And something snapped
Possibly because she had already had three hospital visits
Black eye, broken jaw, bruised...Read More

You brought presents for the kids. 
They hesitated at the door, I watched. 
I had to ask myself, why?
I could not help it.

You brought a broken doll in a fancy dress, 
A train without track....Read More

Premium Member Last Look



Its beak is just above the oily mud.
Head resting on the thick sludge.
One black eye looks at us.
There is no accusation in that gaze.
No recriminatory stare,
not even a plea for rescue.
Only that dimming lens
that looks at a clean patch of...Read More

WHERE THE NOR’EASTER FLIES

what is the weather, dear.
oh my! where we last sailed
the Nor’easter flies.

oh my, i’m blown over
my darling, that’s clear.

i’m inhaling (yes i do)
the counterclockwise winds
that are keeping you.

piloting your plane
without delay
spurring you South.

STOP

Barking. 
The dogs are barking again. 
It happens every night about the same time. 
I think that is the exact hour, the man comes home…
from the bar.

He lost his job, because of drink.
He lost his job, because of drugs.

A collaboration with Kim van Breda - honored Kim

I've tossed some dreams
       into corners
where they sit rusting -
dissected spare thoughts
for a restomod old body
smartly attired with
polished imperfections

swum life's streams
through currents
undulating promises
the color of sandstone

WARNING Don't Read


Before we get down to your last sites,
I think I should, really, try to relate.
That theyre, now,

He is sorry after giving her that beat down.
He has never been this sorry. 
His wailing sobs can be heard all over the hospital.
Begging her to forgive him. She decides to not press charges.
He is like a contrite little boy.

Premium Member I love her black eye
I always thought she looked beautiful, 
In the morning before the blame,
When she’d smile at those around the office, 
She’d smile right through the pain,

And colleagues and mates and other staff, 
Would compare her eye to wine,
The blackest wine you...Read More

I watch her sitting there, and I'm amazed
that she can grin exultantly. It's clear
she's just engaged in a horrendous fight, 
but on her rosy cheeks, there's not one tear.

She looks to be about ten years of age,

Some think a vulture is the ugliest bird.
Her red-black-eye beak looks a little absurd.

Ruthless and greedy, she can make you wretch.
But if you get to know her, she will easily fetch.

She is big and strong with gorgeous black wings.

The Prowler
The wind is a howling a gale,
there’s thumping and bumping outside.
There’s moans that sound very ghostly
and it shrieked like somebody cried,
so I stepped out into the darkness 
where mystery I hoped would unfold,
then whack! I am flat on me back.

In opposite directions off course.

Lies
Brown eye to black eye
The movement of colour when you lie
Less conversations,more fights
This tension between us is really pushing me above my height

The stress makes me lose weight,tonnes and tonnes
Sleepless nights and a broken heart
