You Are My Adorable Poetry
where? 
where are you? 
let me see 
oh nothing is still!
morning has gone, 
noon, afternoon, twilight also gone 
look there is still nothing 
night has come
moon is absent tonight
as if my alliance with the dark and insect-worm-spider 
lizard on the...Read More

I met death very early in my life,
he took my big sister one snowy day;
my mothers scream still echoes like a knife,
broken within-  not a word I would say,
and dealt with death by penning my dismay.
Years and years- ...Read More

The great Tory brexitland tour calling off at:
Islamaohobia, followed by a short visit to 
the tax havens, via the museum of the NHS.

Five Nights on the Fifth Floor

8 December

Names and monikers are just smokescreens for the feckless. 
They hide like poachers in the mud, behind a fake title of hubris.
Nevertheless, I am Doctor Harry Pim, MD, PH.D, LL.D. 
It is all pointless...Read More

I Am Envious of the Sky Bird
It all began one afternoon

The ground was hot and the world seemed bounded
But up the sky the boastful sky bird glided gaily
Enjoying the boundless splendour of the universe
Huh! If only I had wings like that bird!
The bird heard me, swooped...Read More

Premium Member Midnight sky
Shimmering stars through barren trees –
I see far as the eye can see!
For clouds are in and snuggled tight,
reveling in this midnight sky.

Others join, as one by one,
each darkened house awaits the sun;
they slumber as the night doth play
and prosper...Read More

Premium Member The thing in the pool
I drown you in wine, the goddamn squatter 
who lives in me. Flow, Lethe, dark and deep!
But even through a drunken dreamless sleep,
like a nude drowned man in see-through water,
the memory is seen… That very sunny
day on the river, tender...Read More

Margarita, fair girl with blue eyes
Come tonight to the hidden spot
When fool moon rises in the dark skies
To the edge of the watery lot
Where the mysterious willow
Washes her long silky braids 
In warm splashes of water
Reflecting shiny moonlight
I will be...Read More

The Host
He is evils willing host
He’s catering to it’s every need.
He doesn’t understand the danger of the
Monster that he feeds.
He’s naive and blinded by
Eyes full of hope and belief-

Fooled by evils disguise-
Gullible, he’ll continue to
Help this demon thrive.

Just how can one...Read More

Social Gibberish
an unsolved case 
of a murder profile
the chief inspector clueless
one that got away

death of a poet 
all his work did not vanish

some-fair weather friends
my pocket was full of money

My world is so different now,

Because  you walked into mine.

Or a single thought of you
Warms my heart , touches my soul
With feelings deep and...Read More

Crows flying through a chill winter sky.........

Time begins to stall........

The moment becomes a vast pool
Without edges or ending 
A place for dead things to live anew
Rise up and sink
Move torment back and forth 
Take me to the brink..........

The moment captures...Read More

Oh sweet stench of death, kiss my lips thy night…

Release me from thy clutches of loves’ rot,

Unchain my soul from loves’ barbarous byte…

Where heavens display their hells and have fought,

Only to bleed bated tears in their fraught;

Be gone thy feverous...Read More

Stately fir trees
Sturdy brick houses
Smile, as suns rays warm their surfaces
   Their faces so much brighter
   Their greens and red lighter

Too quickly does the sun retreat
this cold month of December
Shadows engulf the trees and houses

in the shadows of the depth
of woe's existence, 
i was awakened by thoughts
of disregard

never ceasing to reason 
without intellect I seek
darkness, 
the gloom that greys the
ivory glazed moon in 
redemption

i fear not the obscurity-
but lather myself in
dim swarthiness of loss

I Know Some Of Life's Sorrows, Fate Decrees Everlasting

I saw seven dying newborn white horses
I stumbled upon seventeen darken courses
I ran through twenty-seven ancient burnt temples
I found love may be hard, even when life is simple.

Dance slow on the palm of death

Beyond the distant saddened sight,
inside this lonely broken place,
I see the light that slowly fades,
the flame that burns like love's gaze
into this empty soundless space,
the void of mind and thought and name,
where all has gone and naught remains
but,
as time dreams...Read More
