Premium Member Utmost Compassion and Care
Want to reach a child, teach him to care?
   To do everything with a gentle flair?

   Or lavish undeserved praise on him -- a complete waste!

Hold in your hand
At me a child who has always...Read More

A Roman, Cavalier, and a Lady in Grey

Depression
What do you do,
When you feel down,
Hang your head low,
As it feels your lower then the ground,

Build your tears up inside,
Keep a smile on your face,
That everything else you hide,

Stay to yourself,
Act as nobody is around,
Write poems like I do,

I'm not a saint though I compel myself to be one

Maybe I, maybe I am only stuck in the middle

Pimping For The Puppet Masters
Hey, I've always been queer for the Men at the Top,
It is something to which I can cheerfully cop.
They're my Pharaohs and Saviors all rolled into One;
I, like, pee in my pants when I see what They've done.

Well, I'd committed...Read More

Suicide Schemes
I wonder again why I have talked, uninterrupted
Until I am blue in the face
Convincing as I may be
You still believe
You're nothing more than human waste

Empty threats, locked doors turn into quiet space
So I kick and kick until the door breaks...Read More

Breathless Helen
Breathless beauty in the world of ice,
Icicles hanging off the tightly coiled noose,
Blue in the face and the body of ice,
Gently cradled by icy old snooze.
Heart that once beat with melody pure,
Eternally banished into freezing unknown,
Broken in pieces, beauty will...Read More

No more pain
Tired going here and there,
Tired of being aware!
Sick of building useless hopes,
Sick of being on unstable slopes!
Vexed facing disappointment,
Vexed keeping perseverant!
Done carrying on,
Done being cheated on!
Special thanks to all my swains;
Those who cured, or racked my strain,
A new stage has...Read More

Dear Manuel
We were so close
You were always there for me
I feared nothing
When you were near
When I was little, I would fall asleep
Safe in your arms

We would joke and laugh 
Til we were blue in the face
We always had so much fun

You...Read More

Despair

If this knife is sharp enough?
It has to cut deep to sever the vein in my thigh

About death, about dying and of decay

What’s after death anyway . . ?
Does dying hurt, can I make it...Read More
