Premium Member When the sun set
There you're alone
Gazing blue waters
In emerald splendor
Embedded within
A romantic landscape.

Visions of sundown
Peeking through blossoms
Bow down to greet you
And caress in love
Hints of my message.

You look elsewhere
At script on horizon
Setting sun engraves
Upon twilight tender
In vermillion intents,
As it dips beneath
Dreams of hushed...Read More

Story
once upon a dream
you made me feel like a queen
gathering treasures
novel unfolded slowly 
lived happy never after

Premium Member An asymptotic junction
She was a mortal soul
In earth, in sweat, in sublimation
She was a devotion, humility
He was a cause
She was a compassion
He was a source
The story could go on to infinity
Yet that did not quite happen...
Rather the story became an asymptotic junction...Read More

BLOOD BATH
Last night
I poured some memories into a glass 
They didn’t fill it, not at all
The bottle was almost empty 
When I started pouring
Someone else’s history
I sipped, gulped, finished it
I always drink too quickly
When I like the taste
Such a stupid thing...Read More

Country
Here I am again,
It’s spring in my little hometown,

And you let me in
To your mama’s dream 
Of a house 
 And somehow....
It felt like home,

Even the lilacs bowed 
In acceptance 
Of our fleeting reunion,

Where you gave me a minute,
Your once...Read More

Space me
A peace of mind 
Walking by myself at a decent time 
No one to check on me 
At least I’m fine
Lower my standards 
A million zillion reasons to
Believe in me 
As I’m reaching you
Every evening new experiences 
This crib I...Read More

Your Side of the Bed
You face the wall,
And snore through the night. 
I face the window,
And pray for morning light. 

You say it’s all in my head,
We’re not falling apart. 
The pain is in my chest,
The breaking of a heart.

Falling
Falling in love,
To falling apart. 
Always ending up, 
Back at the start. 
I’ll face the window,
You face the wall.
When pride is strong,
Apart we will fall. 
Falling out of love, 
Two hearts on the ground. 
Still we get back up,

After the Fight
She lays awake on tear stained pillows. 
He says you know I love you right?
His words don’t sound the same, 
His apology insincere tonight. 
Lost in her thoughts again, 
It’s back to fight or flight. 
The laughs have expired, 
With...Read More

Broken
I hope the grass is greener,
As mine is dry and wilted,
I hope you find your happiness,
As mine is faint and stilted.

I hope you treat her well,
Since you’ve left me all alone,
I hope she gives you her all,
I wish she could...Read More

FORTRESS
She was a fortress
Rock solid, determined
To stand strong 
Against any attack
But she turned the music up
While her king was in his counting house
It was far too loud
She danced on her walls
Flaunted herself, taunted
Received attention, even unwanted
Aware and unaware of her...Read More

As Roses Bloom
Roses for a Lover, Idealized
by Michael R. Burch

When you have become to me
as roses bloom, in memory,
exquisite, each sharp thorn forgot,
will I recall?yours made me bleed?

When winter makes me think of you?
whorls petrified in frozen dew,
bright promises blithe spring forsook,

Rapunzel
Rapunzel
by Michael R. Burch

Regret,
a bitter
ache to bear...

once starlight
languished
in your hair...

a shining there
as brief
as rare.

Regret...
a pain
I chose to bear...

unleash
the torrent
of your hair...

and show me
once again?
how rare.

Is silent the word

Is silent The word

In his arms

The arrow that they have shot through the eye.

We were defeated there

Where he has smiled a little.

Word by word

They have taken care.

Now scared.

Losing them

Heart has made him his own with great pride.

Is silent The word

You Tossed Me About
You tossed me about,
You smiled in motion as I broke in pierces,
Did you see what you had?
As you swayed me powerlessly unto the prisons of your heart,
You poisoned my heart with your trickery,
Something that looked like love,
Did you hear my...Read More
