Some people have the knack
To show up uninvited
And crawl beneath our skin
They enrage and irk us till
We want to strangle them
If only there were a way
To avoid their drama and theatrics
Some way to magically bypass
All those who so make our...Read More

E-nchanting us to surrender.

and return to one special point in time.

Planning for college, an auspicious climb;

The focus had changed from my family to peers.
Now recalling classmates, not...Read More

Aloof Waft Ting Thru Spiritus Mundi
While rummaging, mining,
and distilling me gray matter,
stoking mentality activates
oft time surprising me,
where unexpected novel

cognizance never abates,
I experienced becoming
linkedin with cosmic fates,
sans collective unconscious
soul of the universe,
and chanced to espy,

(albeit only a trimmed speck),
the spirit of William Butler Yeats
considered one of...Read More

God Speaks
But Few Are Heeding His Voice
Written: by Tom Wright
2/25/2016

God communicates in ways that not all understand,
Many brush off his message while neglecting his command.

From the pulpit we covet substance to tickle our ears,
While remaining as mute sheep, bound for...Read More

Premium Member On the Park Bench at Christmas
I walk into the park on Christmas night.
A wonderland of winter greets my eye.
In shadows with a bluish tinge, the white
of snow looks magical, and it’s piled high.
I’m glad I wore my boots! I look ahead
and see a bench. It’s...Read More

Because I Love You

Saying I love you is me making you a promise,
A promise to keep you safe,
A promise to make sure you eat,
A promise to help you smile.

Premium Member Being a Bee
To be a bee 

is not to be becoming
as pollen dust 
defies the brush off.

is not to be becalmed
as the buzzer is never silent,
never switched to off.

is not be idle 
as bees are frightfully busy 
all of the time.

is not...Read More

Screen Obsessed Teens
Screen Obsessed Teens
Finding home in cold dark screens.
Show support, send a like,
Post another, cry all night.
Yet another insecurity.
Take a jab at another's purity.  
Swallow a pill, lose some weight;
You feel so heavy the scale could break.
Strive for beauty and...Read More

Through my window pierce first spry rays of sun 
Tingling energy hovers over me
Like a coat waiting for a day of fun
Effervescence tickles my skin with glee

Eyes shut tight I let myself be nudged by
An infantry of mini faeries

Dirty Love
So we came undone, stitch by stitch,
it's been far to long but the scars still itch.
Lies start to feed on a love I believed
was specifically designed and crafted for me.
Words once ingrained into our history,
scatter like petals from an over-plucked...Read More

Your talking dreams, now you're in my realm

Watch me walk into the night
From darkness I will draw forth...Read More

People handed me the scissors and wonder why they...Read More

Now my mother will leave me alone and
stop asking me if I have brushed...Read More
