Premium Member The book of lide
The Book Of Life.
I earnestly searched for the book of life
I looked in every store
I always got the same answer
‘’We never had one
Have you tried next door?’’
My endless quest finished fruitless
And I gave up my restless endeavour
I began to think

Social Confusion
I often feel confused 
I love my friends with all of my heart 
But I want more 
I want

blurred nights

Just a thought
I’ve never been a leader
But thought that I’d be leading
If achieving all my goals
Helped others start believing

I’ve never been intelligent
But thought I could advise
If learning from mistakes
Is what makes a person wise

I’ve never been content
But thought I’d be at peace

Premium Member free verse on love
impassioned thoughts linger
against the ivory folds of my flesh
with the same tones of dawn's sky
whenever you cross my mind

my heart still skips a beat
like an old forty-five
whenever our song comes on
and you sing along
with that look
of content
in your eyes

Monet had his garden to paint,
Water lilies and a bridge so quaint

So many times he swiped his brush,
To capture the flowers and mistle thrush

Soothing pastels and budded greens,
So content, each day for him seemed

 Never tiring of his view,
Suggests it...Read More

Premium Member Funeral Pyre
Living in the creek’s dark caverns, he was content with his homestead.
His dwelling place had been foretold 
by fairytales on nights so cold.
A promise of the things to come were all that kept the fires fed.

"This Romeo is bleeding, 
but you don't see his blood",
My heart has come barren
It has not rained spring for long,
Thirsty for a loving embrace
Taste I can only a strand
Of its shadow in my dreams,
Separated I have been
With my love for...Read More

My jubilant love, you inspire me to write.
I love the way you’re so forgiving,
Invading my mind day forward through night,
Always dreaming about us reliving.

You are more happy, content and special.

I am nothing
I am nothing,
Standing right in the middle of nothingness
Doing a lot, but nothing, 
Gained a lot, but nothing
Worth noting, absolutely nothing,
And waiting, waiting for something 
That too is nothing! 

So hard it is to live
With shattered dreams
Things get so well...Read More

Mom’s words cut like a knife, honed razor sharp
Which saddened my new wife
Mom now, after years of strife
Says I married up in life!

I read a quote the other day.
It said you must improve today.

I read a quote the other day.
It said to love yourself – don’t change.

Which quote was right?
Which quote was wrong?

Both made me weak.

The Alley Cat Blues
I am tired of not being hugged,
my owner moved and left me behind,
searching for a roof over my head,
dreaming of a soft and comfy bed.

I'm singing the alley cat blues.

Surrounded by strange blank faces,

magnifying our sorrows, as we close our eyes.

Shadow Rock
Where the waves break
And sea foam rises
The crisp sound of the ocean
Echoes in the cavernous openings
Of private oceanside caves.
Waters rise and recede
As time passes through.
Sunlit moments slightly shaded
By rock shadows floating by.
Caressed by tropical breezes,
Spritzed in salt waters,
My soul is...Read More

Premium Member COFFEE BAR

I come for the ambiance
Curl up in the furthest corner
Quite content for life to pass me by
I like the pace
Mostly I like
That it doesn’t ask

So I sit there
Cut the cord
Block it all out
Do my thing
It’s my second home

Treated Defeated
Now he’s stopped 
and not forgetting 
he’s wailing petty 
nonstop and getting 
no help no pity
inside he’s broken 
shutting down 
no means of coping 
no one around
No love shown to him
hell bound
never known loves bliss

When you look into
The sky at night
You’ll see the beautiful stars
There’s one that seems
To wink at you
Making you feel content
Sometimes you’ll see
A shooting star
And if you make
A wish, it’ll come true

Premium Member Emily
Emily, if we could have met,
I don't suppose I would forget
How very awkward it had been,
I can picture thus the scene:
Introvert to introvert,
Apprehensive, stiff and curt,
Neither of us keen on seeing
Another dreaded human being.
What would have happened if
I'd greeted you...Read More
