in the theater break a leg,...Read More

Tie your shoes
Step to the side
Let the gentlemen
Past you bye
You think it's
Funny slouching
around
I wish you'd
Start thinking
and ask me why
get it right the first time
Or get close enough
Don't clutter your thoughts
when sing
Steer your audience down
When they applaud
Thank them for coming

Break A Leg
A starlet stands in the Green Room
Creating an aura of doom
She will face her fate
As a vampire's date
But the star can't climb out his tomb . . . ....Read More

I Beg
I beg for your happiness
To eliminate my sadness
I beg for your forgiveness
Replace my tears with gladness 

Your happiness 
Illuminates all of me
Your forgiveness
Gives me airborne liberty
Your gladness
Lives within me now
My sadness
Is fading away somehow

I beg, I beg, I beg
I tried...Read More

Good luck she said.
Ha! I make my own luck.
Always have, always will.

Good luck in the contest.
Good luck on stage.

Her pure nasty resonates.
Her nasty eyes, her nasty smile.

Premium Member Hive Mind
The hive is buzzing betwixt the midst of its queen,
Swirling around an admired mind whose undeserved rapport ripples to her oppressive wings.
Like victims to a vacuum, they spin within the machine who depends on the fury of capture.
Swirling into smoke...Read More

Someone Else's Dream
As white as a cloud
As blue as the sea
As dark as the night 
And as black in a crowd

Decisions to make,
are not mine to break. 
Must be a piece of cake,
but hard to take.

Someone else's dream
are just like a beam
But...Read More

Or should I not?

Donut Hole
Quatret Poetry Soup contest

Who can describe Nothing? 
Clue—it’s a little tricky to define. 
For you see, Nothing is Something. 
To disagree you should promptly decline.
If your notion is nothing is not anything,
That is somewhat asinine.

Take a donut hole for example.
