Premium Member What Is Normal

My burning question is what is “normal”
Normal is unique with everyone, intrinsically moral
So how is it defined
It's defined by the mind
Of course, we have to deal with the creepy abnormal

The jewel in the crown
I really want to, but then I really don't

The battle rages on, inside my head each day
Most times I never know, what I will do or say
And such is the life,...Read More

The Model
I decided today
To become a model outright
Not one that walks the runway
But one that walks through life

Someone that others can follow
Not a leader per sa
But one that sets higher standards 
Of morals along the way

One who is a prime example

Premium Member LADY IN WAITING
A tale of a lady in waiting.....
Emily did speed dating,
For her swain she is waiting,
Emily, anticipating,
Hopes fantasising,
Are her nuptials nearing?
Is today that diamond appearing?
Shall she have a solitaire ring?
Preceding her white wedding?
Now her swain is appearing,
He has a burning question,

So why do I do what I do?
Do I really have free choice
or am I the product
of social conditioning,
complying with the expected 
conventions and restrictions
placed upon me
by my peers and elders?

Do I live my own life
to my own tune
or am...Read More

Mating Rituals
The warm evening breeze 
Caresses my skin as I sit 
Beneath the old garden elm. 

The chatter of birds echoes
 Through the trees as they perform 
Their spring mating ritual. 

Redbirds, mocking-jays, and hummers 
Scurry from limb to limb, jealously...Read More

holy graphic
standards fall
infinite divisions
of a space call
for creations base

" eat me "
the waters taste
of completion

Aellopus delivers
a connection
and a field explodes
in subtle elation

an ocean
births a generation

" opposites attract "
a burning question

" and the beauty of a point "
the equation

it's the holy graphic

May I Lay My Head Upon Your Shoulder
May I Lay My Head
Upon Your Shoulder?
Just For A Moment
and Not A Minute-Longer?

When Hurt’s Too Heavy
The Weight of The World

For This Lonely Girl

May I Lay My Head

So The World Won’t Seem

Is it a sin to be rich? -

Burning Question

A life of banging my head against the wall
Searching for answers
I am plagued by instant replays

Haunting me
Taunting me

Isolation has become my companion
Dark emotions has become my jailor
I am chained to my life of despair
I see no redemption ahead

Nothing seem...Read More

The Weight of Angel Wings

The Weight of Angel Wings
By Rick Rucker

Whenever I see you,
Strange things happen, not a clue
About how they could be,
Far too magical to see!

When you walk down the street,
All the songbirds choose to tweet,
Could this be merely random,
Or a case of...Read More

The Valley of Death - Cerulean Odyssey
Cerulean Odyssey, Vol.5, No.12

boxes full of empty shells

generations of a scarlet thread

Burning Question
I have written of love and romance someone
passed a comment about being careful of
false idols. This left burning questions within

My ear to your heart

On the tip of my tongue
For such a long time
A burning question
Wearing grooves in my mind
But you are my answer

Premium Member The Hourglass
In our youth the sand appeared always to creep,
But because we were young we scarcely paid heed.
It continuously drained in awake hours and sleep,
This unassuming hourglass was performing its deed.

In youth, why time crept was a burning question,
But by middle...Read More

Tell me mummy

Wait another day.

Father, Mother, Destiny
I forgive you mother and father
For your mistakes
Will I be forgiven for mine? 
They say the sins of the parents
Shall be visited upon the children
So they have visited
And I embraced them 
In times of uncertainty
And ran from them in
