Premium Member broken love
plethoric is his mind
shifting thoughts
like shadows cast
in and out of clouded skies

he falls
with the shame shadiness
into the concealment of pain
arising momentarily 
whenever someone nears

he only hears
words echoing
down lonely corridors 
as they bounce back
from the thoughts of mind
yet he speaks back

If There Was No Poetry
If there was no poetry
I would visit ward psychiatry
For poems give energy
Free me from an allergy
When we vent our woes
Wonders wander with us
Nature gives insight much
Only to bounce back such

If there was no poetry
I would visit cemetery
For there I understand...Read More

Screams at an azure ocean
bounce back in waves to me.
Egos spill over with frustration

To American Ruffians and Roguish Statesmen
(On General Soleimani’s Martyrdom)

So your itchy heads seem to need to be scratched for good and all!
Aye, to lie down to rest at last and get through your drunken brawl!
Now your big noses in the air are to be rubbed...Read More

Premium Member Open One Ocean
Screams at an azure ocean
bounce back in waves to me.
Egos spill over with frustration
of wants never meant to be.

Let go of self-absorption
awake in epiphany.
Rise above the commotion
reach a new reality.

Oneness is revelation
life's persistent mystery.
Droplets see some solution
while water moves consciously.

Diligent While Being Resilient
Diligent While Being Resilient

Determined that we are always diligent;
Ability to bounce back and be resilient;
Have to hustle;
Flexible muscle;
Thank God to us Son our savior He sent.

Why Am I Hurt So Bad
When life upsets me it is hard
To bounce back when I am scarred
From all the abuse received
Hoping one day I'm relieved
But the words and actions shown
Aren't forgotten, they're full blown
In my mind where they will stay
Never going far away
Loser, no...Read More

is the
of our feelings,
caused, perhaps, by loss,
sometimes by rejection,
the process should not take long,
we are expected to bounce back,
we should not stay long at the graveside,
unless the grave is that of the war dead....Read More

Premium Member Where Bumbles Bounce and Blooms Bedazzle

I’ve come back to that place 
where bumbles bounce and blooms bedazzle -
a place that ought to be one of happy recollections,
for it is so pretty here. . . even now,
and the air so fragrant.

Despite its loveliness, the garden of...Read More

What did I do to deserve this?
Could someone out there not condone my purpose?
Maybe this nightmare is but a dream.
What a horror in a place so serene.
Oh why did this happen to me?
I am kind.
I am a sweet and holy...Read More

Just so you know, 
this is not the time to be

for all the wrong reasons,

yes you are different
yes you let the battle...Read More

Why only Me
Why only me?
Whatever I do,
Whatever I see,
People only look at me.
But why only me?
I stand I fall,
But never get through the wall,
I try to make people smile,
So, that they find me worthwhile.
I always try to do something right,
But, it bounce...Read More

Bounce Back
Sitting in disbelief feeling anger and grief,
as if I’d wish the worst or place a curse
On people with more worth 
while I’m trying to turn a leaf.
Why would I hurt after I did desert 
but now want to seek...Read More

“…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”*
Such Scripture truth braces me up with God’s grace
Propelling me to move on, bounce back, march forward
Every time my yearning for my human-fortress intensifies.
Vulnerable to attacking nostalgic angst
I’m now succumbing to the reminiscence-force

My throat feels scratchy
I'm irritable and edgy
Coming down with the flu
Trying to go for success 
I'm still pending

I'm turning down the intensity

Sitting in silence but my heart is crying

I was always well spoken and knew how to conversate
But at school I was going through too many personal problems to sit down and concentrate
I couldn't pay attention in class, everything the teachers said left my head

There are those times when I can't absorb
Anything anyones sayin'
Now is that time

Wonder when feet are so cold.

Are they a-lovin or are they a-shovin-

Lighting of poverty
The dilemma of unfolded experience 
Thief of the universal peace
Thunder storm that terrifies the universe
You are the creature that lives invisibly within
The tremendous bug that bugs the planet earth
Uncomfortable but certainly portable to carry
Possibly replaceable but probable attachable
So full of...Read More
