The “Lazies”
Written: by Miracle Man

As bleeding heart liberals crusade for open borders,
Illegals bring their customs, and now reshape our country.
Some show moral probity, but many become hoarders,
And socialist's dare say, “it's all elementary”.

Bleeding Heart
My heart is bleeding
And I wish you could see
The pain and sadness
You have inflicted on me

I have given my all
Everything that I am
But you clearly don't see
Or just don't give a damn

You feel I'm obligated
That it’s my duty to stay

I see true your eyes

You look, you look, you 
look me, in the eye,
But your gaze carries 
on, into infinity,
No other reason, 
except it’s all lies,
Unable to make contact, 
you stare through me.

You see, you see, 
you don’t see...Read More

What is faith if it can’t be proven
A belief that I have in my heart
But can’t touch it and deconstruct
In a way so others can feel it too
Belief is inside of my heart locked
And can’t be experienced by others
So, others...Read More

A murderous rogue I had befriended
Boasted of how he'd killed his intended,
With a sharp knife he crept
To the room where she slept -
Her bleeding heart can never be mended....Read More

They felt he could be trusted with their fate
With comfortable words to free from blame
He told a tale to which they could relate
Where guiltless victimhood could be their claim

With bleeding heart he said: “I feel your pain

Bleeding Heart
A loss left my heart ripped
A memory still makes my heart skip
I wonder what still holds it together
Pounding on and on in a chain of pain
My heart is empty but heavy
For not belonging
For always longing
It holds on to someone
Someone far...Read More

Memories flash through my mind
Voices scream from within
Yet, there is no sound
I'm eternally hell-bound.

Within the confides of silence I sob
Broken films of memories 
step me into the darkness.
Leaving behind this bleeding heart

These voices are drowning
The darkness is devouring
The silence breaths

Jumbled, fumbled
thoughts fester floors
such a toxicologist,
bleeding heart

Channels his veins
neath tiled floors
of a bar joint

His essence fills the walls
challenged by cigarettes,
cigars, concoctions and
lonely tear ducts that
drains and fills the
devil's brew of

My (bleeding) heart is filled to overflowing, 
To see any growing glad(iolus), garden glowing;
Each sun peached, (petunia) petaled delight,
Is frozen in precious moments of pure delight,
From bursting buds, to the spicy boom of blooms,
Nature is most generous with their heady...Read More

Premium Member On Crimson Hill
He sat on top of the crimson hill
Looking, staring,
Asking why?
Tears fell on blades of grass
Like, drops from a bleeding heart
He tugged at his torn jeans
Reached deep in his pocket
Looked at the photo
Asking why?
Heartbroken, blurred vision,
He stood, then stumbled 
On what...Read More

Broken and wounded with a bleeding heart,
And still gasping for breathe,
She forced out a smile and muttered something,
But that wasn’t my name,

An identity

The name sounds strange,
Undeniably, I was the only one there with her.
She asked,
“Will you die for me the...Read More

Lying in the Shadows

‘twas only yesterday life seemed so right;
so rife with color, lighting up the day,
but now a veil has covered up the light,
and turned the day a somber shade of gray.

The fields we used to roam were lush...Read More

More pangs will, schooled at forepangs, wilder wring.

He was to me as was sunshine -
