The land that lies
The land that lies


Happy dancer, singing songs,
Knowing that the end will come;
But which is the end and which new beginnings?
Waiting on the end of the beginning, is this the beginning?
This all started a long, long time ago,
When I thought I...Read More

Scarlett
Once again you slide inside
to chiv me, 
to stick me with a blade.

Cold steel is not
when your blood's running hot
but the signals get mixed
then we're fixed
fine? it's dandy.

You don't feel the stiletto
as it tiptoes in and your
life falls out,
and I...Read More

Bottom of the Barrel

It is a bad place to be born,
the first breath you breathe
is drawn from dregs of scorn
And you get rolled from day one,
passed around like a bottle of rum
Then they toss you to the curb,
after emptying you when they’re done
You...Read More

The Bottom of the Barrel
THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL

She was scraping the bottom, the barrel was now almost bare.
No meal now to do all the baking, the last meal was now sitting there.
And then came the prophet Elijah who said, “Share the meal with...Read More

a quest within
ive been to the bottom of the barrel
it was in my head
the critical self hatred poisoned my well wishing
dare i strive to become whom I want
pasteurized and organized to fit
my odd ways having no polarity
id rather be this than that
inexplicably...Read More

Bad Breeding

the list that was a fist
a) it is possible
b) it is inevitable
chained to a million pleasures
an astonishing compendium of compulsions
honed bright with a fool's ardor
the kind you'd wish for in a movie script
undulating at the tar pits of amor

Born to the sea
Born to the sea


Mind of water, flowing thoughts;
The currents beneath your words could change us all.
River heart, born to the sea;
The solace we seek waves to you and to me.


Join me on this voyage, over water, to a new land.

Don't You Dare Forget
It's crazy how we as humans debate these great things
We brave situations daily, with masks on, we hate this
Everyday the same thing, and instead of searchin'
For greatness and we become complacent servants
On a day to day basis, we waste so...Read More

Premium Member My Swan Song - Almost


Seriously thinking of calling it quits

I'm rapidly running out of gas

Dragging up stuff from the bottom of the barrel

Scrounging around looking for inspiration

Can't seem to find any anymore

Think to myself it'll pass

Not quite so sure this time around

Maybe just the...Read More

The Cockies' Lament
The Cockies are in trouble, they can’t live off the land
Mortgaged out of existence with the need to expand
Hope like the land eroding, luck just giving out
Bushies fighting continually, fire, floods and drought
And so the Banks are now the terror...Read More

Bottom of the Barrel
Make wudhu', she told her children
Lest you be killed today
And eaten by ravens
As the bodies lay still
The survivors searched for safe haven
And while the oppressor swings around his deadly mace
The people pray that God has made paradise for him forbidden

It's...Read More

The Blessing You Are
While scraping the bottom of the barrel with nothing left
God promised I’ll make it, but not by myself
So when he gave me you, I felt heaven’s wealth
The vision in you took away my breath

It woke me up and guided me...Read More

My Mom
She's not rich
  but can have money in her pocket
She's not perfect
  but she doesn't do everything wrong
She doesn't have the best attitude
  but she's not the meanest person you'll contact
She may not be fine to you

I know U got another corner to bend

Merlin Unbound
I am the root.
I am the green fuse. 
I am the stem, the bud,
the dry twig,
and the stealthy footstep
that snaps it in the night.
I am the rising hair on the back of your neck.
I am Merlin, the bard,
and I sing...Read More
